Sunday wakeup call from prominent religious leader

January 15, 2017

Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europe’s dominant religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans.

He added, the number of Eastern Europeans arriving over the past few years has also hit the quality of life for native Italians, “We help without delay those coming from outside and we forget many poor and old Italians who are eating from the trash,” the archbishop said. “We need policies that take care of Italians first: our young people and the unemployed.”

“We have a weak Christian faith,” he stated. “The Church nowadays does not work well and seminaries are empty. Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline.”

Regardless of your religion, this Breitbart report is a wake-up call.

The Gatestone Institute has been covering Europe‘s migrant crisis. These are just some of the articles and videos that address the growing problem.


No news about arrested local Jihadist in AZ Republic

December 24, 2016

Lack of information exposes the falsehood of adage “No news is good news”

The local newspaper isn’t giving this any ink, but Pamela Geller reports ISIS is in Phoenix and plotting to attack a midnight mass and Tucson Jewish community center. Also on Derrick Thompson’s attack list found by officers during a search of the apartment he shared with his wife and young child, were a military recruiting center and fitness location. Thompson, who also goes by the name Abu Talib Al-Amriki, is a home-grown, Phoenix raised jihadist. He’s a convicted felon, prohibited from purchasing firearms, which he has repeatedly attempted to do online. He was arrested by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.

Geller links to an ABC 15 Arizona report.

Thompson’s arrest comes a month after Mahin Khan, an 18-year-old Arizona man, was sentenced to eight years in prison for terrorism convictions stemming from a plot to attack a motor vehicle office in metro Phoenix.

While the Arizona Republic busies itself denouncing President-elect Donald Trump and irrationally comparing him to German mass murderer Adolf Hitler weeks before his inauguration, fundamental Islamic terrorists are working to decimate us. The newspaper — which often reprints the identical story in another section of the same edition — can’t claim it has no additional space to inform Arizonans of the terrorists in our midst. It might just be it has no will to do so.

This nearly six-year old SRAZ post, Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns, includes this ABC 10 San Diego news report detailing the Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah has a long established foothold in Tijuana and other border towns.

Read the shocking results of this Center for Security Policy poll conducted among U.S. Muslims who say they would trade the U.S. Constitution for Shariah law and specify that the Quran should be highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion.

After famed neurosurgeon and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson responded to a question by saying that he would not support an obedient Muslim for president because Islamic law is incompatible with the U.S. Constitution, the former brain surgeon’s roasting among media talkers and politicians of all stripes took on a life of its own.

There’s no doubt that Dr. Carson was correct. But among dedicated liberals these days political correctness trumps being correct — even if we are ensuring our own demise and burqas for our granddaughters.


D.R.E.A.M. Act morphs into dreamy amnesty

December 11, 2016

Illegal’s impossible to verify claims set stage for nightmare rather than dream

Once upon a time — in 2001 — we first heard of something known as the D.R.E.A.M. Act. The acronym stood for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors. It was introduced as S.1291. The 2002 bill was drafted before the speech police ruled the words “illegal” and “alien” unacceptable, so they were used extensively throughout the bill.

The D.R.E.A.M. Act was a liberal dream come true, a warm and fuzzy piece of legislation lacking any means of verification while permanently swelling the ranks of the Democrat Party.

Those applying for the gift of U.S. citizenship need only affirm they were 16 years of age or younger when they initially entered the United States and are currently 35 years of age or younger. They have to declare that they have been persons of good moral character since initially being brought to the U.S. as children by their parents — illegally. Verifying how many came as babes in arms or ably propelled themselves over the border last year at age 34 is impossible to substantiate.

Along the way those hoping to access the overly generous provisions of the D.R.E.A.M. Act, simply became known by the sympathy provoking term, “Dreamers.” They are no longer “alien minors,” but merely those requiring compassion. There are consequences to this massive scale manipulation and the victims are not the illegals, but our own American citizen children.

The so-called “Dreamers” represent a dual assault on law-abiding, taxpaying American citizens and legal immigrants, since public universities grant illegals in-state tuition. American parents who send their children to out-of-state colleges have to pay higher tuition than illegals.

Most importantly, this scam results in illegals taking the limited number of spaces available for students at public universities, crowding out deserving American students and eventually competing with them in the job market.

Any illegal who claims they entered the U.S. before they were 16 years old and have lived here for at least five years can gain legal residence and ultimately citizenship merely by graduating high school, attending two years of college or entering the military. But even those requirements can be waived if they would cause “hardship.”

The biggest winners of this reckless lunacy will be the millions of illegals whose status is legitimized, and universities striving to enhance their numbers of Hispanic undergrads to 25 percent in order to qualify for a $1 billion fund set up by the Department of Education for “Hispanic Serving Institutions.” Over a dozen Arizona schools are on the notorious list.

President-elect Donald Trump has stated he will terminate DACA, (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), an executive action signed into law by Obama in 2012. It provides an exemption from deportation and a renewable two-year work permit. 

Let’s be clear. Dreamers are dreaming of one thing: Stealth Amnesty. They are being aided and abetted by the Arizona Board of Regents and the Phoenix Union High School District, funded by citizen’s tax dollars while creating impediments to our own kids.


Making the case that the media skew the news

December 6, 2016

The Daily Regurgitation — yes, the state’s largest newspaper really does shamelessly re-spew its own reports — sometimes a day or two apart and often in different sections of the same edition. The frequency of the repetition quickly took the actions outside of the error category.

Open borders/amnesty plodder Linda Valdez, never one to obscure her far left views, writes columns titled, “How liberals move forward under Trump.” or “The Mexico you need to know.” But she outdoes herself with this rollicking piece titled, “Why Trump’s attack on media hurts you more than me.” She cites  the growing proliferation of “fake news” as being “truly corrosive to liberty,” even managing to stir Thomas Jefferson into the mix. As one who routinely engages in skew, her protests ring hollow.

Valdez quotes President-elect Donald Trump telling an audience that “professional journalists are very dishonest people.”

Even the reliably liberal Washington Post headlines with this admission: “Just 7 percent of journalists are Republicans. That’s far fewer than even a decade ago.”

Chris Cillizza reports: A majority of American journalists identify themselves as political Independents although among those who choose a side Democrats outnumber Republicans four to one.” He cites a study of the media conducted by two Indiana University professors.

It would be beyond rational to believe a reporter’s personal political alignment doesn’t seep into his or her political news coverage. Readers of the Arizona Republic  know better. That’s why there are fewer and fewer of them.

Valdez doth protest too much.


Trump picks Priebus as chief of staff, Bannon chief strategist

November 14, 2016

Priebus is GOPe — Bannon represents conservative ideas

Donald Trump ran as an outsider — outside the mainstream Republican construct. Throughout his campaign he was often denigrated by the establishment, horrified at the prospect of a president they couldn’t control.

For that reason alone, naming Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to the chief of staff position is, puzzling, to say the least. To conservatives, the RNC is the establishment personified — everything the populist conservative movement that propelled Trump to the presidency rejects. Priebus, Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are what we have just given the boot to in electing Trump.

Businessman Trump was elected, against all odds, for a reason. He won the presidential nomination over 16 other primary candidates. All but Trump, Dr. Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina possessed arm’s length government resumes.

Donald Trump represents new ideas.  The old ones definitely haven’t worked out all that well as evidenced by the last eight years of Barack Obama’s reign in which he ignored the Constitution and bypassed congress at will. Trump needs to show his loyal, conservative, core base of support that being elected doesn’t mean he’s abandoning the principles he ran on.

The establishment has used a megaphone within its own conferences, repeating the echo chamber tripe that Republicans can’t win elections without embracing amnesty, always slickly repackaged as “comprehensive immigration reform.” Trump’s election has boldly proven that canard is false.

Priebus represents more of the same and will surely counsel President Trump to back away from many of the concepts that put him over the top last Tuesday. Just days ago SRAZ wrote “Trump’s vow to enforce border security propelled him forward.”

Yet following the Romney/Ryan 2012 loss, Priebus, a Ryan ally, released this 97-page GOP “autopsy that concluded Republicans must embrace amnesty in order to remain relevant. “We must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform. If we do not, our Party’s appeal will continue to shrink to its core constituencies only,” the report states.

Obviously he couldn’t have been more wrong.  American citizens are not opposed to legal immigration, but are vehemently opposed to gifting citizenship to illegal invaders who disrespect .our sovereign border.

Steve Bannon, executive chairman of the conservative Breitbart News has been named as President-elect Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor. He and Priebus appear to be diametrically opposed on major issues.  Trump’s announcement said the duo “would be working as equal partners to transform the federal government.”

Time will tell.


Trump’s vow to enforce border security propelled him forward

November 10, 2016

Americans desire national security, respect for our sovereignty

Think back to when a more bombastic Donald Trump stood on the stage with 16 other Republican candidates and seemed the most unlikely of them all to be the last one standing. But his message that has resonated throughout his campaign remains a powerful yet easily understood one. No amnesty for illegals and build a wall

With that strategy, he was bucking the establishment honchos comprising the Republican National Committee that commissioned this self-analysis after the dismal  2012 elections

Their conclusion was  the party “must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform.” Americans know it more honestly as “amnesty”—- a magnanimous gift for the hordes of illegal invaders. Arizona abuts the porous border and we have been force-fed the “comprehensive” baloney from Jon Kyl, John McCain and Jeff Flake for years.

The RNC’s big tent concept was massaged to remessage the Republican brand to those who think we “don’t care about them.” Whether that is the task before a political party is up for debate. Especially so when they have blatantly disregarded our law to enter the U.S.

In 1992, Bill Clinton’s strategist James Carville coined the phrase “it’s the economy stupid,” as a keep-your-eye on-the-prize objective. Today it’s amnesty for illegals from Mexico, South and Central America as well as Russia, China and Middle Eastern countries that are state sponsors of terrorism. The main job of government is to provide safety to its citizens.

Barack Obama opened the floodgates to all comers looking to increase the Democrat voter base.  Hillary Clinton vowed to go even further. For years we’ve been given a static number of 10 -11 million illegals who are already here. As they continue to flood into the U.S. and have families once they arrive the number is actually closer to 30 million.

Donald Trump understands the significance of the amnesty message, and made securing our border a cornerstone of his campaign .No country exists without enforceable borders. Legal immigration, including assimilation to our language, values and customs, once known as Americanization, is welcomed. Being invaded by lawbreakers is not.

An excellent assessment of Donald  Trump’s ascension to the presidency of the United States, is written by Breitbart’s senior editor-at-large Joel B. Pollak. This excerpt states his case perfectly, illuminating why Trump was elected:

What the Republican establishment underestimated was how deeply Americans — including key Democratic constituencies, and even legal immigrants — resented amnesty. For some, it was a matter of economic competition. For others, it was a matter of the rule of law. And for others, it was a matter of cultural coherence.

Regardless, Donald Trump reached voters that the GOP had long forgotten by promising to “build a wall” with a “big, beautiful door.”

It was not a call to xenophobia. It was a claim that the diversity that Americans have always cherished — e pluribus unum — rested on the foundations of secure borders, and law enforcement, and fairness. If we don’t have a border, Trump argued, we don’t have a country.

 


“Coordinated” attacks: Don’t call them terrorism

September 19, 2016

Despite increased evidence of terrorism, political correctness still reigns supreme

Over the weekend mayhem erupted in several unrelated locations. A bomb placed in a construction dumpster in New York City’s Chelsea district Saturday night injured 29 people, blowing out windows and causing numerous evacuations of nearby buildings. Though NYC’s leftist Mayor Bill de Blasio conceded the explosion was an “intentional act,’’ he waffled on any connection to terrorism until his appearance this morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”  It’s certainly leaning more in the direction that this was a specific act of terror.

“A specific act of terror?”

Three hours after the blast, a second device was found four blocks away, a pressure cooker that investigators also identified as a bomb. Pressure cookers were used by the Boston Marathon bombers, killing three people and injuring at least 264 others — many seriously — on April 15, 2013. A pressure cooker device was also used in a failed jihadist plot to attack New York’s Times Square in 2010.

Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, a naturalized citizen from Afghanistan, sought in connection with this NYC bombing is thought to be part of a terror cell. He was captured this morning following a shootout with police, after being identified by his cell phone left at the at the site of the unexploded pressure cooker.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo noted that the explosion hadn’t been linked to an international terrorist group, but rightly concluded, “A bomb going off is generically a terrorist activity.” Cuomo missed the point that terrorism doesn’t have to  have international roots. Homegrown terrorism is a reality.

Barack Obama, who referred to the Fort Hood massacre as “workplace violence,” has remained mute. In 2010, Nidal Hasan, a devout Muslim U.S. Army major and psychiatrist, slaughtered 14 people (one an unborn child) and wounded 30 on the Texas Army base, as he shouted “Allahu Akhbar!” (Allah is greater!)

For unadulterated foolishness, this takes the cake:  Saturday evening police responded to calls of multiple shootings and stabbing victims inside s mega-complex shopping mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota. This BNO news coverage should be in the running for the Politically Correct Award of the Year for reporting, “It was not immediately clear whether the stabbings were linked to terrorism.”  This followed St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson saying, “The individual made some references to Allah and we have confirmed that he asked at least one person if they were Muslim before he assaulted them.”

An explosion shook the Elizabeth, New Jersey train station early Monday, where local and federal authorities were investigating a suspicious package. The blast went off as a bomb robot was examining a device inside a backpack under the train tracks around 12:40 a.m. Information was still sketchy in this NJ.com 1:20 AM report.

Micah Halpern, writing for the Observer cogently sums the reluctance to call terrorism by its rightful name in this commentary, “Explosive Language: Call the New York Bombing Terrorism Already.

Along with calling terrorism by its rightful name, we finally need to shut down immigration from terror sponsoring nations. Obama is flooding the U.S. with hundred of thousands of unable to be vetted “refugees,“ and Hillary Clinton has pledged to continue this self destructive lunacy.

Political correctness be damned.
