GOP aids Obama’s stealth immigration, climate change power grab & UPDATE

May 19, 2015

Republicans foolishly poised to give Obama fast track on Trans Pacific Partnership, providing irreversible authority, since treaties supersede statutes under U.S. Constitution

This is huge,” Dick Morris tells America‘s Forum host J.D. Hayworth as he discusses Obama’s attempt to fast track Trans Pacific Partnership.*  (video under link)

“I hope that everybody listening takes action, call your senator about it.  If he‘s a Republican. he‘s voting wrong.  I don’t think the people understand that in this deal, which is a trade agreement among Australia, Malaysia, Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, Canada, United States, Mexico, Peru and Chili, there is a provision for free flow of workers, just like in the European Union.

What that means is unrestricted immigration.  It means literally that Congress would not have the authority to restrict immigration, because a treaty supersedes a statute under our constitution.”

Morris continues, “Obama is going to try to circumvent the legislative process and use the treaty-making authority do stuff that Congress can’t repeal, and a future president can’t change. As he enters the seventh year of his presidency, that’s what he’s focused on.  Under the guise of a NAFTA-like trade agreement it provides for unrestricted immigration within these eleven countries, which means any Mexican can come here to the United States legally, stay here, be naturalized, become a citizen and vote — and Congress can’t do anything about it. The Constitution enumerates the powers of Congress. One of them is Immigration and Naturalization.  This supersedes that and it does so for all time. Because you can’t repeal a treaty unless the other signatories agree.’

“It also could become the way to get Climate Change in,” Morris warns.  “He’s taking the whole legislative agenda and putting it in a treaty and getting it ratified and then it becomes as good as a Constitutional Amendment.

In this case Obama is putting it in a treaty and asking congress to approve fast track authority.  The idea that with all the power this president has grabbed, the Republicans are about to give him fast track, which means he can do  any trade agreement he wants and ratification is almost automatic, and the Democrats are opposing this. It is entirely Republican votes that are pushing it and they just don’t understand what’s in the damn bill.”

“This is not amnesty,“ Morris tells Hayworth. “Amnesty is for people who are already here.”

Watch this vitally important interview beginning at 5:52.

 * Besides the United States there are 11 other countries involved in  the TPP: :Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.

Update-tag

On Thurs. May 21, 2015, by a roll call vote of 62 to 38, this is the Senate vote on HR 1314. This measure is expected to be the vehicle in the Senate guaranteeing Obama’s trade promotion authority. Check out the votes of Arizona’s Senators.


Robert Robbed of memory on closed primary

May 1, 2015

The rest of us still have our wits about us. The symbol of the Republican Party is the elephant, noted for its long memory

Those of you who still read the daily fishwrap might have felt your jaw unhinge over what passed for a column by Robert Robb.

Robb claims that having a closed primary in 2010 wouldn’t have made a difference in the U.S. Senate race in which conservative former Congressman J. D. Hayworth challenged the self-identified “maverick” and amnesty proponent John McCain.  

And if you don’t buy that load of baloney, Robb throws another curve, opining that even though the Republican Party would be on sound legal ground to close the primary, to do so would be nothing short of a “PR blunder.”

Want more? He adds that a “non-partisan” or Top Two Primary which does away with parties selecting their own candidates to run in the General Election, would provide an actual solution. He blasts Republicans who desire a return to the closed primary system where registered Independents don’t have a hand in selecting our candidates, as “hard-bitten” and “hardliners.”

Robb writes the “GOP brass, however, have decided not to pursue such a court case,” completely ignoring  the fact that the “brass” are McCain operatives, aware that he benefits from having outsiders choose our candidates. The divide in the Arizona Republican Party over this major issue separates grassroots conservatives and the party elites as few issues have.

Robert Robb must think we’ve forgotten his prior stance on this critical election component.

 In July 2012 Robb had an entirely different mindset, in a column opening with these words:

A little honesty and sobriety is in order about the top-two primary system initiative that apparently will be on the November ballot. The purpose of the initiative should be stated plainly and bluntly: It is to reduce the influence of conservative Republicans in Arizona. The rhetoric used to sell it will be more lofty. There will be a pretense of deploring extremism on both sides of the political divide. But what’s driving the initiative isn’t a concern that the Democrats who get elected in Arizona are too liberal. It’s a call-to-arms reaction to a bone-deep belief that the Republicans who run Arizona are too conservative.”

Could job security be responsible for Robert Robb’s double-talking turnaround? His newfound opinion coincides with yesterday’s announcement of a shakeup of the honchos at the Arizona Republic as it undergoes a major “corporate transition.”

For a genuine insight into the compelling need to close Republican primaries refresh your memory with our April 13 post A. J. LaFaro dispels Robert Graham’s myth on closing Primary. It includes a letter to the members of the AZ GOP executive committee sent by immediate past Maricopa County Republican Chairman A.J. LaFaro, in which he lays out the case in detail. 

Closed primary resolutions were overwhelmingly passed by elected state delegates at the January 2014 and 2015 AZ GOP Statutory Meetings. Yet instead of being voted on at the April 18, 2015 executive committee meeting, state chairman Robert Graham, carrying McCain’s water, shut out Precinct Committeemen and scrapped the issue opposed by…..John McCain.

Get it?


Congressman J.D. Hayworth is on the move!

April 26, 2015

For more than a year now, J.D. Hayworth has been an Anchor/Commentator for Newsmax TV. Beginning Tuesday, April 28, he’ll be moving to Prime Time.

“Newsmax Prime with J.D. Hayworth” premieres this coming Tuesday at 8pm, Eastern/5pm, Pacific.  The program will repeat for J.D.’s friends and former constituents in Arizona (not to mention the rest of the West) each night at 8pm, Pacific/11pm, Eastern.

Newsmax TV is now available in over 40 million homes.  It is seen on Ch. 349 (DirecTV); Ch. 223 (Dish); Ch. 115 (Verizon FiOS) or here on your computer with streaming video at www.newsmaxtv.com

Hayworth once described himself as the 2010 “One Man Economic Stimulus Package” for Arizona, as he prompted “Campaign Finance Reform Champion” John McCain to take advantage of a loophole, and raid the taxpayer-subsidized 2008 Presidential Campaign Fund for $20 million of the $30 million spent overall to defeat Hayworth in a bitterly fought Republican Senatorial Primary.

He remains the only Arizonan in history to serve on the powerful Ways and Means Committee.  His appointment to that powerful panel came at the outset of his second term in the House of Representatives, where he served for 12 years.


Illegal Immigration: Dick Morris admits JD Hayworth was “right all along”

December 6, 2014

Morris says he’s come around to Hayworth’s way of thinking

Appearing on America’s Forum, politico, columnist and best-selling author Dick Morris acknowledged what Arizona conservatives have known for years: Former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ) now host of Newsmax TV America’s Forum “had it right all along,” on the subject of illegal immigration.

This informative clip features Miranda Khan, J.D. Hayworth and Dick Morris.

Morris’ quote:

 “For about the last hundred years J.D. has been warning about the immigration issue, and he’s been saying that this is going to be the central issue of our debate…and that it ultimately will be what drives downscale Democrats away from the Democratic Party when they realize that it’s causing unemployment and wage stagnation.  I didn’t necessarily buy his point of view. I agreed with his overall view on immigration, but not about its centrality. And now it’s becoming increasingly clear that he’s exactly right and he’s been right for many, many years. This is the guy who had it right all along.”

Watch the entire segment. The discussion centers on Obama’s executive order granting amnesty to millions of foreign nationals, the negative economic impact on our citizen labor force,  and the options congressional Republicans are considering to address this unconstitutional power grab.


Democrats engage in voter fraud, ‘ballot harvesting’

October 28, 2014

By now Arizona’s left-wing ballot stuffing escapade has been seen far and wide. Truth Revolt’s Ben Shapiro reports on the deceptive practices caught on tape. On Monday, Maricopa County Republican Chairman A.J. LaFaro appeared on NewsMax‘ “America’s Forum” with host J.D. Hayworth discussing the scheme known as “ballot harvesting.”

‘Joe for America’ expands on the insidiousness with this shocking account of Obama administration officials convicted of voter fraud in Indiana —- asking the question, “Why is it only Democrats who deal in voter fraud, when it’s they who say it never happens? If this story does not convince you the entire nation needs strict voter ID laws, nothing will.”

Fox News reports a jury in South Bend, Indiana has found that fraud put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election. Two Democrat political operatives have been convicted in the illegal scheme after only three hours of deliberations. They were found guilty on all counts.

Former longtime St. Joseph County Democrat Party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr.  was found guilty of felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud and forgery, and former County Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe was found guilty of felony forgery counts and falsely making a petition, after being accused of faking petitions that enabled Obama, then an Illinois Senator, to get on the presidential primary ballot for his first run for the White House.

According to testimony from two former Board of Election officials who also pled guilty, Morgan ordered Democrat officials and workers to fake the names and signatures that Obama and Clinton needed to qualify for the presidential race. Blythe, then a Board of Elections employee and Democrat Party volunteer, was accused of forging multiple pages of the Obama petitions.

These recent exposés of fraudulent election activities should motivate legislators to strengthen laws, ensuring our political process provides voters with a sense of confidence in the integrity of the voting system.

The Hill uses unreliable information in McCain report

September 26, 2014

Polling shows John McCain carrying increasingly negative numbers as well as the wrath of a large swathe of his home state Republicans —– evidenced by multiple state and county censures.  As The Hill speculates about the senior senator’s political future, major flaws in the article “McCain gets ready for the race of his life,” are revealed in the sourcing and less than accurate skew.

Reading the article, one outside of Arizona would likely come away thinking McCain was invincible and that his three-plus decades in DC, have imbued him with brilliance in matters of national security and accumulated wisdom simply by virtue of staring octogenarian status in the eye.

The facts belie such notions. His left-of-center alliances and preference for illegal invaders over Arizona’s citizens have earned him the ire of grassroots Republicans .

Yet The Hill anoints convicted felon Wes Harris as the ‘grassroots conservative expert’ to speak for all of Arizona. Although Harris’ observation of McCain’s unpopularity is correct, his assertion that McCain won reelection in 2010 because his conservative challenger —- former Congressman J.D. Hayworth —- was a flawed candidate laden with too much “baggage,” has no basis in reality.

Arrogant and divisive Wes Harris has alienated many conservatives. Few would say he speaks for them.

In fact, the popular Hayworth was formidable. After a year-end Rasmussen Reports survey showed McCain in a virtual dead heat with the still-undeclared Hayworth, McOperatives did the expected, launching into counterattack mode by running a disreputable push poll to inflate McCain’s numbers. Hayworth, who carried strong conservative support, was not hobbled by baggage, but rather by being outspent roughly 10 to 1.

The man with baggage galore is John McCain. Last January at the annual mandatory meeting of the Maricopa County Republican Committee, elected precinct committeemen voted to censure McCain. The measure passed overwhelmingly — 1,150 in support with only 351 opposed. Read the complete Resolution to Censure John McCain, including a list of grievances 

Later the same month, McCain was censured again, this time by elected state committeemen at their statutory meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party.

The Hill article does include one telling segment worthy of a second glance:

Former Sen. Jon Kyl, a longtime Republican colleague, said McCain would likely draw a challenger but predicted he would prevail. Kyl is quoted as saying the state party make-up next year will be different from the one that censured McCain in January.

 “I think you’ll see a different party make-up after the primary election. There will be a new group of precinct committeemen. I don’t think you’ll see many of the same old faces,” Kyl said.

Kyl’s facile words tell a much more significant story.  The McCain/Kyl/Flake establishment has been hard at work attempting to remove  diligent, conservative elected Republican precinct committeemen and replace them with compliant moderates. This past Primary Election cycle, when committeemen are elected, there were numerous reports of recruiters being paid for enlisting new people to run against conservatives. McCain’s frequent censures were a national embarrassment the McCabal doesn’t want repeated. 

Thursday’s post MC GOP Chair LaFaro exposes Wes Gullett in complaint explains the efforts being taken to oust elected committeemen.

This post card is an example of those sent out by then-Sen. Jon Kyl in 2012, as he inserted himself into the LD 28 precinct committeemen races and attempted to facilitate the removal of conservatives.

In the end, it’s all about maintaining McCain and his ilk, even if it means destroying the Arizona Republican party by eliminating committed party stalwarts in the process.
