Pres. Trump’s WH speech addresses national security, border crisis

January 9, 2019

Last evening, President Donald Trump made the compelling case for addressing the crisis on our southern border.

His prime time speech (9 minutes) was delivered from the Oval Office, stressing the seriousness of the issue that he is willing to go to the mat to fund. The partial government shutdown continues, with “non-essential” workers temporarily furloughed. These are the facts.

Pres. Trump is asking for $5.7 billion for security construction, a small percentage of what we give to foreign nations for their security. More than 200 countries receive American foreign aid. (Numbers supplied by the U.S. Department of State.) Additionally, the U.S. is assessed at 22% of the U.N.‘s budget to bolster the organization that consistently votes in opposition to our interests and those of our allies.

This Jan. 4, 2019 letter sent to members of Congress details the facts and figures relating to the open border and criminality. It also includes these words:

“It is the sovereign right of every nation to establish an immigration program in its national interest—lawfully admitting those who have followed the rules, while denying entry to those who break the rules or fail to meet the requirements established in law.

A nation that fails to control its borders cannot fulfill its most basic obligations to its citizens—physical safety, economic security, essential public services, and the uniform protection of our laws.”

In 2006 The Secure Fence Act (view senate votes) won the majority of Democrat votes and even Republicrat amnesty proponents McCain and Kyl supported it, along with Obama, Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Biden, Durbin, Specter and Feinstein.

Watching last night’s Democrat rebuttal was a study in political absurdity, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who voted for border wall funding in 2006, now steadfastly opposed to any such measures due to his animosity towards Pres. Trump. Schumer currently calls a wall “ineffective.“ Pro-abortion House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who knows something about her description, termed the wall “immoral.”

It would be interesting to know if Catholic Pelosi had a similar discussion with Pope Francis, who lives in safety and security behind a massive 50-feet-tall, ten-feet thick wall surrounding the fortress that is Vatican City.

Unblinking, zombie-like Pelosi questioned the facts of a crisis posed by the thousands of illegal invaders caravanning through Mexico to our border from the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. After arriving at the border, these folks who so desire to be Americans, waved flags of their native countries and hurled rocks and bottles at the U.S. Border Patrol agents.

President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will attend the Senate GOP Policy lunch today and will follow that by hosting a bipartisan group of congressional leaders at the White House.

Donald Trump won the 2016 presidency after distinguishing himself from 16 other Republican Primary Election candidates by campaigning on securing the border. 

Not dissuaded by the obstinate Democrats, he will travel to the U.S.-Mexico border Thursday to further detail the need for a wall.

Ducey swears in Dems: Proof of AZ GOP ineptitude 

January 7, 2019

This morning at 10:00 Gov. Doug Ducey will preside over the inauguration of newly elected state officers. The spiffy invitation is topped by a copper-toned replica of the state seal. The text is embossed on high quality, ivory card stock. To the untutored eye, it looks elegantly celebratory.  But the hard truth is, of the five state officers being sworn in, two are Democrats, newly elected to formerly Republican-held posts.

Republican Mark Brnovich was reelected attorney general as was Joe Hart, state mine inspector. Former state senator Kimberly Yee was victorious in her bid for state treasurer.

The debate can rage over what caused the upsets. The striking  #REDSforEd unionist teachers, who abandoned approximately 840,000 students in over 1,000 Arizona public schools for more than a week, claim credit for the eminently unqualified Democrat Kathy Hoffman winning the Superintendent of Public Instruction and Katie Hobbs now a heartbeat away from the Governor’s office. Republicans also lost a seat on the utilities’ rate-setting corporation commission. Five of Arizona’s nine congressional district seats are now in the Dem column.

There’s plenty of blame to be spread around, but as the sign on Pres. Harry Truman’s desk spelled out, “The buck stops here,” meaning with him, since he was in charge. The same analogy can be made with Jonathan Lines, the Republican state chairman. He lives approximately 200 miles away in Yuma, with his wife and 11 children, runs a business in the area and rarely shows his face at Republican headquarters. He is the marionette to string-pulling Robert Graham’s puppeteer. Arizona Republicans need leadership, not someone taking orders from the representative of the Republican syndicate. Frank Thorwald, the backup candidate, conveniently works with GrahamAnd Graham?  He’s been censured, barred and fined $15,000 for alleged violations of Massachusetts  securities laws, according to a consent order from the state’s securities regulator.

Dr. Kelli Ward, a former two-term state senator is challenging the bungling Lines. She’s knowledgeable and familiar with the process. We have the rare occasion to elect a Trump-supporting conservative who speaks our language and is not beholden to the establishment. The statewide GOP Statutory Meeting is Sat. January 26, 2019. If you are an elected state delegate, be sure to cast your ballot for Dr. Kelli Ward.


Tear gas? Dem hypocrisy, double standard, exposed

November 29, 2018

The mainstream media would have us believe that President Trump is nothing short of a demonic ogre for allowing tear gas to be used at the border to inhibit rock and bottle throwing illegal aliens from storming our sovereign border.

What a bad guy!  What a corrupt administration!

Yet according to data from the Department of Homeland Security first reported in The Washington Times, the identical tear-gas agent that the Trump administration is taking heat for deploying against a border mob last weekend is actually used fairly frequently — including more than once a month during the later years of President Barack Obama’s administration.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has used 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile, or CS, since 2010, and deployed it 26 times in fiscal 2012 and 27 times in 2013. It was still being used in 2016, Obama’s final full year in office.

Border authorities also use another agent, pepper spray, frequently — including a decade-high record of 151 instances in 2013, also under Pres. Obama. Pepper spray, officially known as Pava Capsaicin, was used 43 times in fiscal year 2018, according to the CBP numbers.

The data poses a challenge to the current leftwing outrage over the Border Patrol’s use of tear gas Sunday to prevent a frenzied horde of illegals from breaking through sections of old border fence in California.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, questioned the skewed reporting in the strongest of terms, asking where the critics were when tear gas was deployed during Obama‘s presidency.

This policy that we use was an Obama-written policy and it was used in 2013 at the same port of entry,” he told CNN, wondering in particular about the intense media interest now versus then.

Critics, including Latin American leaders, immigrant-rights advocates and congressional Democrats, have said use of tear gas is “un-American.”

“Un-American”? Maybe Obama was born in Kenya, after all?

Watch as Brandon Judd exposes the facts of the border situation in an interview on The Daily Caller TV:

Voter fraud?  What voter fraud?

November 10, 2018

With Arizona’s 2018 General Election results challenged by now averted lawsuitsand winners and losers shifting before our eyes, today’s post is especially provocative. Although the mainstream media vehemently denies voter fraud exists, evidence speaks louder than the denials. James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has been the leading investigators into voter fraud over the past several years. Here is a compilation of their investigations and compelling evidence that voter fraud is real.

The Heritage Foundation provides a state-by-state ‘sampling’ of of election fraud cases from across the country.

In 2012 SRAZ posted an earlier Veritas exposé, which we titled, Voter fraud? “We’re not the police.” The blatant disregard of maintaining election integrity by those in government offices remains shocking. Click on the link to watch the the video.

This ever-growing problem has been keenly honed by those who seek to manipulate our election system for their own goals. Only by exposing the reality that this criminal activity undeniably exists, can we have any hope of eradicating it. Arizona’s elected officials with oversight into such activities need to be paying attention. What would appear an obvious place to start would be working on behalf of a law to require actual photo ID be presented when voting, though that becomes unenforceable when people register to vote online and receive early ballots in the mail that they vote at their kitchen table, without ever interacting with election officials anywhere in the process. The recent court challenges centered on verification of signatures on the back of the mail-in ballots.  We now have until this coming Wednesday to get the results.

Is convenience worth the high price?
