Fox News calls in a “Specialist”

May 16, 2017

Former Arizona Congressman JD Hayworth will run two “Best of” programs Wednesday and Thursday morning on Newsmax TV, as another network has requested his help.

JD will fly to New York to appear on Wednesday’s edition of “The Fox News Specialists,” airing at 2:00 pm, AZ Time.

This definitely sounds like not to be missed programming.


TX Gov. Abbott signs bill banning sanctuary cities

May 9, 2017

Rational Americans understand the danger posed by sanctuary cities, which thwart federal immigration law, releasing arrested illegal alien criminals back onto our streets. The issue gained notoriety following the horrific murder of San Francisco resident Kate Steinle, strolling along the pier with her father and gunned down by a repeatedly arrested and deported illegal alien felon who had just been released from jail. Her tragedy — one of countless such deaths — where the perpetrators are given cover by sanctuary cities — highlights the need to rein in these disastrous policies.

Closer to home was the cold blooded murder of Grant Ronnebeck, a 21-year-old Mesa convenience store clerk killed by a Mexican illegal repeat offender, facing deportation but released on bond. Ronnebeck was killed for counting the money before handing the impatient illegal alien the cigarettes he was purchasing.

On Sunday Texas Governor Greg Abbott, a Republican, signed a state law which imposes stiff penalties and hefty fines on elected or appointed officials who fail to comply with the provisions included in Senate Bill 4.

Gov. Greg Abbott should stand on solid legal ground. He was previously the longest-serving Attorney General of Texas, served as a Justice on the Texas Supreme Court and as a State District Judge in Harris County. With her own interesting bio — holding two Master’s Degrees and a Bachelor’s, Cecilia Abbott, has made Texas history as the first Hispanic First Lady of the state.

The Texas measure comes as President Donald Trump has prioritized combating illegal immigration. Texas, which has an estimated 1.5 million illegal immigrants and the longest border with Mexico of any U.S. state, has been at the forefront of the immigration debate.

“As governor, my top priority is public safety, and this bill furthers that objective by keeping dangerous criminals off our streets,” Gov. Abbott said in a statement after signing the bill into law. It will take effect on Sept. 1.

This Weekly Declined Detainer Outcome Report published on March 20, 2017 details a portion of what U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has been dealing with regarding “Detainers that were declined.” Another tricky description is “Non-cooperative jurisdictions.”

Gov. Abbott stands in stark contrast to the repugnant policies of California Gov. Jerry Brown, a left-wing Democrat.

Judge Neil Gorsuch confirmed to Supreme Court

April 7, 2017

Neil Gorsuch has been confirmed as the 113th Supreme Court justice. The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals judge was confirmed this morning in a 54-45 vote after Democrats worked tirelessly to derail his confirmation.

Gorsuch is expected to restore a 5-4 conservative majority on the nine-person bench.  Once sworn in on Monday, he will join the court and begin to hear cases, in the seat once held by the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February 2016.

Trump’s decisive action against Syria wins support

April 7, 2017

Following Tuesday’s deadly chemical weapon attack that killed at least 75 and seriously injuring scores of other innocent Syrian civilians , President Donald Trump issued this statement

“Today’s chemical attack in Syria against innocent people, including women and children, is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world. These heinous actions by the Bashar al-Assad regime are a consequence of the past administration’s weakness and irresolution. President Obama said in 2012 that he would establish a “red line” against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing. The United States stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable attack.”

Thursday the president ordered missile strikes against the Syrian airfield from which the deadly chemical attacks were launched.

According to this April 7 Reuters news report, initial indications are that this strike has severely damaged or destroyed Syrian aircraft and support infrastructure and equipment at Shayrat Airfield, reducing the Syrian government’s ability to deliver chemical weapons,” said Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis.

initial indications are that this strike has severely damaged or destroyed Syrian aircraft, support infrastructure and equipment at Shayrat Airfield, reducing the Syrian government’s ability to deliver chemical weapons,” said Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis. 

Numerous allies supported Trump’s action as an “appropriate” and “just” response. 

The Telegraph, a British newspaper reports, “The UK Government fully supports the US action, which we believe was an appropriate response to the barbaric chemical weapons attack launched by the Syrian regime, and is intended to deter further attacks.”

Malcolm Turnbull, Australia’s prime minister, said that the “Australian government strongly supports the swift and just response of the United States.”

Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu also issued a statement of full support ”saying that “in both word and action” Mr Trump “sent a strong and clear message” that “the use and spread of chemical weapons will not be tolerated.”

Saudi Arabia on Friday stated it “fully supports” the strikes, saying it was a “courageous decision” by President Donald Trump in response to the use of chemical weapons against civilians.

Democrat U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, (Hawaii), condemned the attack tweeting that Trump’s military strikes in Syria are reckless and short-sighted. She followed the path of Russian President Vladimir Putin whose spokesman said the strike had seriously damaged ties between Washington and Moscow. Putin, a staunch ally of Syria’s Assad, regarded the U.S. action as “aggression against a sovereign nation” on a “made-up pretext.”

Dijon’s Grey Poupon’s mustard ad had the perfect tagline to address Gabbard’s and Putin’s responses: “But, of course.


March 4 Trump: 12 noon Sat. March 4

March 3, 2017

Update-tag

The newspaper’s intentionally vague late afternoon headline: “Hundreds attend Phoenix pro-Trump rally”

A N N O U N C E M E N T 

Phoenix is hosting a “March 4 Trump Spirit of America Rally”  — part of a nationwide campaign that includes planned marches in support of President Donald Trump in cities across the USA.

The event, to be held at the state Capitol, begins at noon on Saturday, March 4, and will feature state Treasurer Jeff DeWit– Arizona’s Trump campaign chairman — former Senate President Russell Pearce, the architect of SB 1070,  and numerous Republican leaders.

The Arizona State Capitol is located at 1700 West Washington Street, in Phoenix. Arrive early; bring water and flags to wave.

This page sums up the view of a growing number of Americans, weary of the constant battering President Trump receives from the overwhelmingly leftwing media.

Show up to support President Trump. The press routinely underestimates our numbers. They were wrong when we turned out in full force on Election Day, putting Donald Trump in the White House. Let’s make such an intentional misrepresentation an impossibility by the strength of our numbers at today’s rally.


Donald Trump became the president with speech to Congress

March 1, 2017

Americans watched transfixed as the election returns came in on November 8, 2016 and Republican Donald Trump was declared President of the United States. A shell-shocked Hillary Clinton called to concede in the early morning hours the next day. Conservatives cheered the election of the populist, swept into office by citizens of all political persuasions frustrated with the status quo.

Conceited liberals were unable to process the results. The leftist press has relentlessly brutalized him. The rest of us knew he would ably represent us.

Tuesday evening, after less than two months in office, President Trump delivered his inspiring first speech (video) to the joint session of Congress signaling what can only be described as a powerful beginning — setting the marker for his entire presidency.  Fox News’ Chris Wallace was compelled to call it “one of the best speeches [he’s] heard a president give.”

President Donald J. Trump concluded his dynamic address (full text)* with these words:

The time for small thinking is over.  The time for trivial fights is behind us.

We just need the courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts, the bravery to express the hopes that stir our souls. And the confidence to turn those hopes and dreams to action. From now on, America will be empowered by our aspirations, not burdened by our fears, inspired by the future, not bound by the failures of the past, and guided by our vision, not blinded by our doubts.

I am asking all citizens to embrace this Renewal of the American Spirit.  I am asking all members of Congress to join me in dreaming big, and bold and daring things for our country.  And I am asking everyone watching tonight to seize this moment and — Believe in yourselves. Believe in your future. And believe, once more, in America.

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless these United States.
