Adm. Lyons: U.S. transformation in full swing since 2008

August 31, 2015

Muslim Brotherhood has penetrated all U.S. National Security Agencies

In a no-holds-barred speech, retired Four Star Admiral James “Ace” Lyons begins his presentation to the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. earlier this year, by declaring Barack Obama has implemented the unilateral disarmament of our military. He unequivocally states that under Obama’s guidance, all of our national security agencies have been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Obama is obviously making good on his promise to fundamentally transform the United States of America.  Few of us will forget the words uttered by presidential candidate Barack Obama days preceding the 2008 election. The foolish crowds, taught moral equivalency rather than American exceptionalism, by liberal unionist teachers, cheered as he vowed, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

Watch Adm. Lyon’s brief presentation, listen to his warning and forward it to your contacts. Regardless of your stance on the 2016 presidential candidates, this information is something we all can agree is critical for our nation’s survival. It’s imperative we unite behind someone who puts America first.

Emperor Obama’s unilateral gun grab

July 21, 2015

Do you have difficulty balancing a checkbook? Obama wants your guns

In yet another massive intrusion on the rights of American citizens, Barack Obama is intent on unilaterally restricting the Second Amendment freedoms of certain gun owners who claim the Social Security benefits they paid for during their working years.

Currently about 4.2 million adults receiving monthly benefits have “representative payees” handle their banking and bill paying for them. Turning those duties over to a trusted family member or friend should not entail the loss of Constitutional rights.

Not only would this amount to the largest gun grab in American history, but according to this Fox News report, the governmental infringement would take place without any due process protections for recipients, amounting to a nullification of Second Amendment rights for millions of Americans who don’t pose a threat to themselves or anyone else.

The Social Security Administration (SSA), which has never taken part in the background check system, provides advice and a phone number for turning in people who raise “concerns.” The government site even provides a “webinar” to educate “payees who serve multiple beneficiaries.” 

The Veterans Administration has already implemented a similar program to designate veterans as “prohibited persons” when they have a fiduciary assigned to administer their VA benefits. Already, 177,000 vets have been swept into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System  through the overreach of bureaucratic tentacles.

Like the Social Security program, the VA procedures are also devoid of significant due process protections or any requirement that the beneficiary be found a danger to self or others

The National Rifle Association correctly assesses, “The implications of this policy are too far-reaching to fathom at present. Social Security is one of the more prolific and relied upon Federal programs in American history. That Obama’s directive could so easily be implemented within the SSA suggests that bureaucrats could effectively cloak such a program in any agency within the growing leviathan that is the federal government.”

Call your members of congress and demand that Obama’s unprecedented and unilateral attempt to implement the largest gun grab in American history be stopped. 

McCain v. Trump: There’s more to the story

July 20, 2015

Trump has engaged Republicans weary of the establishment control of the GOP

The Washington Post’s Dan Balz is apoplectic in describing what he terms GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s “attack” on John McCain in questioning his heroism. In a report on the fray, littered with quotes from unnamed presidential candidates, one used the word “lethal” and another expected “a complete cratering” of Trump’s support. “Still another,” Balz writes, “predicted Trump would become ‘a niche candidate’ and a “sideshow to the main event.”

In fact, just the opposite is true. Recent polling shows outspoken businessman Donald Trump leading the pack with 18%. Recently announced Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker jumped in at 15% and Jeb Bush stands at 14%. None of the other GOP candidates reach double digits.

McCain, it should be remembered, began the slugfest with his comments in reaction to Trump’s Phoenix appearance last week which drew 5,000 attendees. McCain not only denounced Trump as “firing up the crazies,“ he arrogantly gave a back of the hand to the Republicans and registered Independent “crazies” who stood in line in the blazing Phoenix 106° heat for hours to attend the ticket admission event.

The war of words ramped up as Trump retaliated by calling McCain, who graduated at the bottom of his USNA class, a “dummy.”

McCain’s disparaging remark was not solely aimed at Trump. He has long been in a death grip with conservative stalwarts who finally had their fill and censured McCain at the AZ GOP state meeting in 2014. His response was to turn his operatives loose on the elected precinct committeemen, in an attempt to purge the party activists from the Republican ranks. Additionally, he urged the IRS to target conservatives. At the 2015 state meeting, both McCain and Jeff Flake were greeted with boos and turned backs.

Wisely, Gov. Scott Walker has stayed on message, and refused to attack Trump, as did Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. But Marco Rubio, who was integral to McCain’s Gang of Eight amnesty coalition, jumped on the anti-Trump brigade.

John McCain’s hero status can’t be questioned, but these are the facts: On veterans’ issues, John McCain talks out of both sides of his mouth. This list of key votes unequivocally shows McCain has either not voted or often voted in opposition to legislation affecting veterans, troops, reservists and their families. John McCain has done everything in his power to block the release of information on American Vietnam era MIAs as evident in this shocking video by Vietnam Veterans Against McCain. It features veterans, U.S. Congressmen and knowledgeable staff.

This video shows John McCain walking out of a congressional hearing after insulting Delores Alfond, chair of the National Alliance of Families, who spent her life seeking information after her brother was shot down over North Vietnam. McCain intentionally made sure all information was classified and made unavailable.

Lost in the melee is the fact that McCain is also a candidate. Running for a sixth six-year senate term, he will be 80 by Election Day. He was first elected to the U.S. House in 1982 —- long before many voters were born. The intemperate man is clearly past his prime, but is unable to relinquish his lavish D.C. lifestyle.

Fortunately, we have the ability to help him.

Candidate McCain honors POW — 71 years late

July 7, 2015

Second Lieutenant John R. Pedevillano was a 22-year-old U.S. Army Air Corps bombardier who flew six combat missions before being shot down by Nazi fighter pilots behind enemy lines over Germany on April 24, 1944.  He and his crewmates were later held as prisoners in the notorious Nazi prison Stalag Luff 7, where they were eventually liberated by Gen. George Patton’s forces.

The young American bombardier’s recognition has been a long time coming. He‘s now 93.  But John McCain, joined by Gen. Larry Spencer, Vice Chief of Staff, U.S. Air Force, is honoring him in a ceremony today —- presenting him with the Presidential Unit Citation with one Oak Leaf Cluster.

As the Arizona senator gears up for his sixth six-year senate reelection campaign, retired Army Air Corps 2nd Lt. Pedevillano provides the opportunity to showcase McCain’s own service and imprisonment during the Vietnam war as the unpopular politician faces 2016 challengers. 

Honoring the valiant wartime missions and ordeals of Lieutenant Pedevillano is laudable. The timing and political aspects are suspect.

AZ U.S. Senate race 2016: What’s wrong with this McPicture?

June 23, 2015


After over three decades in congress, John McCain is reportedly not in a hurry to get his 2016 reelection campaign underway. He claims not to be worried about a credible conservative challenge, yet his ad campaign is already up and running. And where else but on conservative sites where he vainly tries to refurbish his very tarnished image.

Conservative precinct committeemen of his own party were the ones who repeatedly censured him in county meetings across Arizona. In 2014 elected statewide delegates overwhelmingly voted this censure resolution against McCain. The final vote was 1,150 in support with only 351 opposed. The following year the delegates’ ire had not abated. He was met with boos and turned backs. Many walked out as he took to the podium.  In retaliation, his surrogates worked with an out-of-state Obama donor to purge the GOP of conservative activists.

This past week, visits to the Drudge Report and Breitbart News brought up an ad announcing, “John McCain continues the fight for our veterans and military members.  Join us.” A click on the link asks for help with his campaign.

Though the nearly 80-year-old McCain has long shown signs of memory loss, most of the rest of us have our cognitive faculties intact. As examples, we recall the following:

This Oct. 16, 2011 article in titled, “ McCain Okay With Cutting Military Benefits,” tells a different story. The Army Times and the Navy Times substantiate the report.

Then watch his Feb. 2, 2008 performance, as he disgracefully insults and shuts down Delores Alfond, Chair of the National Alliance of Families, seeking information about American POW/MIAs unaccounted for since their service in Vietnam.

If John McCain actually cares about veterans and military members, he has a strange way of showing it. Conservatives are hoping Dr. Kelli Ward, a two-term state senator with an impressive bio will challenge the devious dodger.

Her concern for the military takes root in her own home. Ward, a family physician, is married to Michael Ward an Emergency Medicine physician. He is a Colonel in the AZ Air National Guard and currently serves as Arizona’s State Air Surgeon. Kelli and Mike have three children.

Dr. Kelli Ward offers a conservative choice. The thought of six more years of the egocentric John McCain, who will celebrate his 80th birthday before Election Day in 2016, is more than most thinking Arizonans can tolerate.

Yet in words that sound like more of a threat than a promise, McCain chillingly tells us, “The reason why I want to seek re-election is that there’s a lot more to do, both for Arizona and the country.” 

God help us.

ISSUE: Characterization of Mexican gov’t helicopter crossing border, firing at U.S. Border Patrol

In this May 5, 2015 press release, Judicial Watch announced it obtained documents from the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) that confirm a June 26, 2014 attack by a Mexican government helicopter on U.S. Border Patrol agents. The Mexican helicopter crossed into U.S. airspace before firing on U.S. Border Patrol personnel. The Mexican government initially denied that the attack near Arizona’s San Miguel Gate occurred, but later admitted to the armed incursion.

The CBP documents were eventually released in response to a July 9, 2014 Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to CBP. The fact filled report, including important links, can be read here.

The day following the attack, the amnesty-promoting, south-of-the-border apologists at the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) headlined an article, “Mexican official says chopper didn’t cross border, fire at U.S. agents.”  It opens with these words, “A top Mexican official Friday denied a report by Customs and Border Protection that a Mexican helicopter crossed the border into Arizona and fired shots near U.S. agents Thursday.”

A search turned up no admission of the attack from the Mexican government reported in the Arizona newspaper.

In Repúblicaspeak, the U.S. agents are wrong. The Mexican official is right.  That’s it. End of story.

Memorial Day 2015

May 25, 2015

Memorial_Day _Hero _saluted_by_a_scout

This day is set aside to pay tribute to America’s military personnel — and their families — who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country

Following a tradition of gratitude, five thousand Los Angeles area residents —- including Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops —- made their annual visit to the Los Angeles National Cemetery. They were there to pay their respects to military members by placing flags on each of the graves. As each flag was affixed, the soldier whose name was read aloud received a salute.

The annual flag placement day tradition is followed each Memorial Day weekend to honor those who have lost their lives serving in the U.S. military.  The first interment dates to 1889. 

Watch this inspirational news video* to hear what the special tradition means to these young people who are fortunate to have been taught about the sacrifices others have made to ensure their many freedoms.

We invite you to listen to this moving rendition of “Taps” played by the U.S. Marine Band.

The United States Department of Veterans Affairs has a fact-filled site with a treasure trove of historic information regarding the observance of Memorial Day.

Arizona’s ABC 15 lists free offers and special discounts for veterans and active military.
