AZ GOP election: Slime campaign reaches new depths

January 23, 2015

Robert Graham is hard at work as he runs for a second term as Arizona Republican Party Chairman. While he amasses conscripted endorsements and accolades, daily emails arrive in the in-boxes of state committeemen heralding Graham as a “defender of conservative principles” who has “delivered tremendous success.”

Confidence building is a requisite campaign tactic. What is troubling is the growing unsavory aspect of having surrogates send 11th hour messages disparaging the Conservative Team running in opposition to the current chair and his slate.

It was not our desire to enter this fray, but the unrelenting attacks against party chair candidate Lori Urban and first vice chair candidate A. J. LaFaro have reached a point where conservatives can no longer turn a blind eye. Not only are they coming at breakneck speed in the final days before the biennial meeting of the State Committee, but the level of animus has exceeded the bounds of decency. LaFaro is the immediate past Maricopa County Chairman.

When viewed by most reasonable people, mudslinging has a far worse effect on the originators of the attacks than the recipients. In a tactic reminiscent of John McCain, Graham’s hands appear to be clean. The dirty work is done by often nameless sycophants who somehow have access to statewide email addresses.  Reports of manipulative push polls, conducted on behalf of the “Republican Party” attempting to influence recipients, reward the undesired answers with gossip contrived to make uninformed newcomers fall into line. Dare we say the honey-voiced woman reading the alternative script, reminds us of John McCain in drag?

In addition to the attacks there are shenanigans relating to petition collections. Traditionally, gathering petition signatures to get a resolution to the floor of the statutory meeting is done in the parking lot as state committeemen arrive.  However, just days ago an AZ GOP restrictive directive was sent out that reads: “As the state committeemen are checked in with their credentials, they will be referred to the room for the purpose of signing your resolutions if they choose to do so.  NO RESOLUTIONS PETITIONS CAN BE CIRCULATED TO STATE COMMITTEEMEN IN ATTENDANCE BEFORE THEY ARE CHECKED IN WITH THEIR CREDENTIALS.”  Further, there will be no mixing of counties on a single page.

This is obviously a preemptive maneuver designed to prevent state committeemen from ever again forwarding another nationally reported, embarrassing censure as previously happened to John McCain at both the Maricopa County meeting and the state GOP meeting.

This meeting of the AZ GOP State Committee will be held tomorrow, Saturday Jan. 24, at the Grace Community Church in Tempe. Registration opens at 7:30 am. If you are a voting state committeeman, arrive armed with truth and eyes clear of the smoke and mirrors intended to deceive.

We support the actual CONSERVATIVE SLATE:

 Chairman:  Lori Urban  

1st Vice Chairman:   A. J. LaFaro 

2nd Vice Chairman:  Gabby Saucedo-Mercer

Secretary:  Lynne Breyer

Treasurer:  Ardith Hildebrant


Pelosi’s provocative app’t to House Intelligence

January 18, 2015

Although Democrats are defending House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s oddly timed appointment of U.S. Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) to the House’s Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), others have expressed concerns about naming the congressman with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood to this committee charged with oversight of the United States Intelligence Community —- including intelligence related activities of 17 elements of the US Government, and the Military Intelligence Program.

HPSCI’s subcommittees deal with Technical and Tactical Intelligence, Terrorism. Human Intelligence, Analysis, and Counterintelligence—- including the Muslim Brotherhood.

This 6-page opening statement going back to April 13, 2011, illustrates the concerns even at that time. Now retired U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) said, “We have heard the full spectrum of views on, and approaches to interaction with, the Brotherhood from various government officials. This inconsistency makes me feel like our government is playing checkers while the Muslim Brotherhood is playing chess.”

Robert Spencer, writing for FrontPage Mag provides important background on Rep. Andre Carson’s appointment. Take time to read his well researched report.

Carson, raised as a Baptist and educated in a Catholic school, converted to Islam as an adult. He has attracted attention for his public statements, including when he was guest speaker at the 2012 Islamic Circle of North America/Muslim American Society convention where he said American schools should be modeled on madrassas —- Islamic schools noted for their penchant to promote repressive, anti-Westernized culture and hatred toward Christians and Jews —- “where the foundation is the Qur’an.”  Both sponsoring groups have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Moments later, according to this report in the UK’s Daily Mail, Carson, a former police officer, warned undercover law enforcement he suspected of being at the event looking for “secret meetings” that “Allah will not allow you to stop us.”

He has a history of making wild and unsubstantiated statements. On August 28, 2011, Carson referred to the Tea Party movement using these words: “This is the effort that we’re seeing of Jim Crow. Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now of this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me… hanging on a tree.” Despite calls to resign, Carson said, “I stand on the truth of what I spoke.”

Good going, Ms. Pelosi.

 


Mexico aids its own citizens efforts to stay in U$A

January 16, 2015

Are Republican House and Senate majorities poised to retreat on amnesty?

Mexicans living illegally in the United States are not only getting assistance via Barack Obama’s executive order shielding them from deportation, they are also getting help leaving Mexico…from Mexico.

On Thursday, the Mexican government began issuing birth certificates to its citizens at its 50 consulates in the United States —- a move that is a shocking affront to the sovereignty of the United States.

This brazen Mexican government action eases the way for illegals to obtain U.S. work permits, driver’s licenses, rent housing, enroll their children in schools and receive protection from deportation as they facilitate their lives here. Previously, Mexico required its citizens to get birth certificates at government offices in Mexico.

As House Republicans voted to defund appropriations (roll call vote under link) to the Department of Homeland Security in an effort to revoke Obama’s plan to allow millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. evade deportation, Mexico eases their path to leave. Facilitating their stay in the U.S. enables Mexican nationals to continue sending money, called remittances, across the border.

Remittances are a tax-free and massive transfer of wealth out of the United States. In 2013, an estimated $61 billion in remittances disappeared from our economy via the institutionalized money transfer industry, not only to Mexico, but throughout Latin America, where it remains a vital source of revenue. Mexico accounted for $22 billion, which according to the World Bank is in fourth place behind India, China and the Philippines in a global ranking for remittances according to this October 2013 report.

Now it appears Obama and Mexico have friends in both the U.S. House and Senate. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed to maintain funding for the Department of Homeland Security, and is looking to pass a “clean funding bill” without any language restricting the administration’s actions on immigration.

Are Americans being treated to Oscar-worthy theatrics on the D.C. stage?


AZ Federal judge protects illegals using stolen ID

January 7, 2015

Judicial overreaches reach new low

In a news article in which the headline is nearly as large as the report itself, the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) enthusiastically treats readers to the latest in outrageous judicial actions. The report states, U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell “issued a preliminary injunction blocking Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery from enforcing two state laws that make it a felony for undocumented immigrants to use stolen identities to obtain work.”

Gnaw on that bit of preposterousness.  According to a federal judge illegal aliens have as much right to your identity as you do —- and neither law enforcement nor prosecutors are able to take legal action against the thieves. Children are viewed as especially attractive targets since their stolen identities usually go undetected for years.

Previously, when found, arrested and turned over to federal immigration officials, the identity thieves were deported. But, alas, those pesky felony convictions hindered their chances of returning to the U.S. legally. Now using legal contrivances reminiscent of George Orwell’s “1984” Newspeak, a federal judge rules that disallowing criminals free access to our county and the personal identity of American citizens is repressive.

Under court imposed pressure, Arpaio has announced plans to disband his work-site enforcement unit within the next two months, following completion of an ongoing investigation.

Campbell said the state laws that criminalize the act of identify theft for the purpose of obtaining employment are likely unconstitutional because they are preempted by federal law.

Jack MacIntyre, a lawyer and deputy chief with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, correctly noted the ruling is “a little bit of an exercise in futility if you eliminate and declare a state law unconstitutional because of federal preemption with a wink and a nod to the reality that the federal government shows no interest in enforcing that area of immigration law.”

The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office is reviewing an appeal of the preliminary injunction.  Bill Montgomery said the ruling “underscores yet again the consequences of federal inaction and the Obama administration’s indifference to the effects of unlawful immigration practices. While pretending to address the concerns of people admittedly violating the law, the victims of identity theft are deprived of the state of Arizona’s protection.”

As expected, left-wing organizations including the ACLU and Hispanic advocacy groups, praised the contemptible ruling.


Illegals warned ID theft, other crimes can impact driver’s license

December 30, 2014

Criminals told prior bad acts will be revealed to MVD

Tucked away at the bottom of page 3B in USA Today‘s insert in the daily, was this one-state-away glimpse into the madness —- via a federal judicial decree —- that has grasped Arizona, now issuing driver‘s licenses to so-called D.R.E.A.M.E.R.S. In the news report, California boldly acknowledges the widespread criminality of those they embrace. 

In August we wrote Have you heard? The USA is “the other Mexico after Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto described the United States in that manner as he stood beside the agreeing leftist California Gov. Jerry Brown. (Watch this shocking one minute video.)

Notice that the news report uses the words “migrant,” “immigrant” and “immigrants,” when referring to what is claimed to be nearly a million-and-a-half driving age illegal aliens who have invaded the single state. Actual immigrants arrive legally, comply with our laws and apply for citizenship.

CALIFORNIA GEARS UP FOR MIGRANT DRIVER’S LICENSES

While tens of thousands of immigrants living in the country illegally are gearing up to apply for a long-sought driver’s license in California starting Jan. 2, others are being urged to think twice.

Immigrant advocates say the vast majority should be able to get licensed without trouble but they want anyone who previously obtained a driver’s license under a false name or someone else’s Social Security number to speak first with a lawyer.

The same applies to immigrants with a prior deportation order or criminal record because federal immigration officials and law enforcement can access Department of Motor Vehicles data during an investigation.

The state expects 1.4 million immigrants to apply for the licenses over the next three years.

Psst…“Don’t tell anybody I said that”

December 11, 2014

These ignoramuses with titles teach our kids

Illustrating the topic “How they came to power,” Dr. Blake Armstrong, a psychology professor at South Texas College in Weslaco, Texas was recorded (video under link) as he likened the rise of the tea party to the rise of the Nazi party. The school is a public community college supported by taxpayers.

Armstrong began his lecture saying, “In 1931, which was really interesting, the Nazis —- people were kind of tired of them. They’ve been around since 1920, 11 years now. They’ve won seats —- they’re like the tea party. That’s such a good example,” Armstrong smugly noted. “Don’t tell anybody I said that, though.”

“But in the sense of how they politically came to power, there’s a good analogy there. That eventually people realized, ‘Oh, these Nazis are a bunch of nuts,’ ‘These tea party people are a bunch of nuts.’ I mean, the analogy really is a good analogy,” he concluded.

No, Professor Armstrong.  The analogy really is a vile one, based in leftwing deceit and moral relativism.

The tea party rose up out of citizen frustration. It is not actually a party, but a gathering of Americans united in their desire to return our United States to its constitutionally based roots. Last we heard they did not have forced labor death camps or gas chambers and ovens such as those in which the Nazis systematically murdered millions of those they deemed “undesirables.”

In another video, Armstrong says “civil disobedience just doesn’t work anymore.  All these people are joining ISIL, because they feel like the rest of the world is abandoning them —- which we are.”

Let’s hope so. Armstrong might have missed the numerous reports depicting these fanatics beheading innocent Westerners.

South Texas College needs to reassess its association with Blake Armstrong. He is unworthy of holding a position of trust and the ability to influence captive audiences in his classroom.


Undeniable proof that liberalism is a mental disorder

Hillary’s presidential aspirations take a nosedive

Speaking at a foreign policy conference at Georgetown University this past week, Hillary Clinton stunned the half-filled auditorium with her irrational comments:

“Using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect —- even for one’s enemies. Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible —-  empathize —-  with their perspective and point of view. Helping to define the problems, determine the solutions. That is what we believe in the 21st century will change — change the prospects for peace.”

It appears Hillary has developed short-term memory loss and isn’t able to recall the unprovoked deaths of nearly 3,000 on American soil that took place on September 11, 2001 as those she says we should “respect,” “empathize with,” and “try to understand” flew commandeered airliners into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. She’s obviously forgotten the epidemic of barbaric beheadings of civilians by kindred Islamic extremist terrorists and the savagery of forced rapes of hundreds of kidnapped Nigerian school girls by the al Qaeda-linked sect Boko Haram. Surely she would have recollections of the acts of terrorism that took the lives of four Americans including the U.S. Ambassador at our Consulate in Benghazi, Libya —- since it occurred on her own watch as Secretary of State.

As she said, “What difference does it make?”
