Another illegal alien on crime spree kills American

July 29, 2015

What’s the point of a GOP congressional majority if status quo continues?

Juan Emmanuel Razo, an admitted illegal alien from Mexico, who was detained but released July 7, after a “suspicious vehicle” incident, has repaid the Obama imposed generosity of the border patrol agents — under the direction of Immigration and Border Enforcement (ICE) — who advised the Ohio sheriff’s office not to take him into custody despite his status.

On Monday, Razo, 35, was charged with the murder of a 60-year-old woman in her home, the attempted rape of his 14-year-old niece, and attempted murder in the shooting of a 30-year-old woman who was walking along a bike path with her two children. The murdered woman lived directly behind the bike path. Razo capped off his spree by shooting at law enforcement officers as they attempted to apprehend him.

When taken into custody, he was unable to produce a driver’s license, a green card, a birth certificate or any type of identification.

Frustrated Judge Michael Cicconetti asked loudly, “How in the hell do I even know it’s him?” When Cicconetti heard the list of charges, he stated, “I can’t set a bond high enough” and set it at $10 million.

Prosecutors and sheriff’s deputies stated in court that Razo “gave a full confession to deputies.” A Spanish translator was needed to interpret Razo’s statement.

In 2013, the Center for Immigration Studies reported ICE freed 36,007 convicted criminal aliens from detention who were awaiting the outcome of deportation proceedings. This group included aliens convicted of hundreds of violent and serious crimes, including homicide, sexual assault, kidnapping, and aggravated assault. The list of crimes also includes more than 16,000 drunk or drugged driving convictions. In the intervening years, Obama’s policies have become even more lenient, and the serious problem has worsened.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Donald Trump, the only presidential candidate to focus on the criminal invasion, has surged in recent polls.

A new CNN survey shows a wide majority — 64% of Republicans prefer securing the border and deportation of illegals over legalization.

Newmax’ J.D. Hayworth exposes Jeb Bush’s slippery Spanish/English double-talk on illegal immigration. The Bush spin on Spanish language Telemundo provides English subtitles. Hayworth points out the differences in Bush’s comments depending on the language he uses.

Meanwhile we get this type of limp-wrested, unenforceable lip service from three Arizona Congressmen, adept at skewing the facts and slathering on a thick layer of what many of us know as horse pucky.


Politically correct crime coverage obscures facts

July 17, 2015

The takeaway line in Thursday’s AP report on the unprovoked slaughter at a Marine recruiting center and another U.S. military facility in Chattanooga —- resulting in the killing of four Marines and the wounding of two others, and one police officer —- was this lunacy:

“Federal authorities said they were investigating the possibility it was an act of terrorism.”

Brace yourself. Next we’re told shooter Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, 24, the Kuwait-born gunman, who came to the U.S. in 1996, is a naturalized American citizen. After all, America only takes in the best the world has to offer. 

Abdulazeez had posted these menacing “jihad” messages on his blog days before the attacks, yet was not on an FBI watch list. “Every one of them fought Jihad for the sake of Allah,” the post reads. “We ask Allah to make us follow their path.”

Still we are told federal officials have yet to announce a suspected motive in the attacks.  His high school yearbook quote, “My name causes national security alerts. What does yours do?” might have raised a red flag or two. He was known to have traveled to the Middle East.

But political correctness reigns and as a result, innocent lives continue to be lost.

We’ve been down this road before. Just a couple of memory refreshers:

When Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a military psychiatrist and devout Muslim, shouting “Allahu Akbar” or “Allah is greatest,” opened fire slaughtering 14 and wounding more than 30 others at Foot Hood in 2009, Obama administration officials classified the massacre as an act of “workplace violence.”  This, despite Hasan’s assertion that he shot his victims in defense of Taliban leadership and called himself a “Soldier of Allah.”

Alton Nolen, 30, an Oklahoma man who had recently converted to Islam in prison, changing his name to Jah’Keem Yisrael, went on a violent stabbing spree at the warehouse where he was formerly employed. He beheaded a female worker and attempted to decapitate another, screaming Islamic phrases as he committed the grisly crimes. The women had declined his offer to convert them.  His rampage was also classified as “workplace violence”  rather than terrorism, by an all too submissive, politically correct media.

The latest phenomenon is the lack of reporting the illegal status of criminals.

Miguel Angel Maldonado, a 14-year-old is accused of driving drunk, running a red light and causing a crash that critically injured four people, including a toddler, in Phoenix. The victims had to be cut out of their vehicle. Maldonado, who was not injured, will be tried as an adult. The daily reports he’s facing four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the near-fatal crash. If Miguel laid off the sauce, and decided instead to study, he’d qualify for tuition breaks.

The new normal is abnormal.


Trump’s appeal? He gives voice to Americans

July 11, 2015

Phoenix appearance with Sheriff Arpaio dominates national news

Recently announced presidential candidate Donald Trump’s scheduled campaign stop in Phoenix today has been instructive. Initially dismissed as a mega-mogul with a penchant for speaking his mind, it turns out he has a massive following.

His appearance had to be moved from the upscale Biltmore Resort, which was unable to accommodate the growing crowd, to the Phoenix Convention Center, as thousands requested tickets.

Everyone, it seems, has an opinion on the man and his blunt illegal immigration message.

Amnesty proponents, Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake are appalled. Gov. Doug Ducey, who ran as a border hawk and did an abrupt post-election turnaround, is averting his eyes and keeping his head down. Phoenix’ far-left mayor and his bobble-headed contingent of Democrat City Council members are aghast. The Republicans pick at their collars and shift uncomfortably when Trump’s name is mentioned. Arizona’s GOP members of the congressional delegation have gone uncharacteristically mute.

With elections just around the bend and Balkan-like ethnic polarization becoming the norm, politicos are walking a tightrope, spittle-laden fingers to the wind, worrying which words they utter will offend which bloc the most or least. The group they appear less concerned about offending are American citizens. The open borders clique at the fading Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) is foaming-at-the-mouth apoplectic, spewing the type of rancid rhetoric the leftist newspaper prefers to attribute to conservatives who take issue with its extreme editorial policy.

The uncomfortable truth is that much of what Trump has to say on illegal immigration strikes a chord with Arizona residents who are weary of the steady flow of foreign nationals, taking jobs and making demands, sapping our resources, stretching our generosity and yes, committing crime. Lots of it. They are jailed, even deported and return to commit more. WND’s Aaron Klein substantiates the facts with his report, “FBI data backs up Trump claims on illegals and crime.”

Then ask yourself why Republicans shift embarrassingly when the unvarnished truth is boldly stated. By turning a blind eye and going tight-lipped, they are not representing American citizens of either party who deserve better. But even more to the point, since they ran as Republicans, they are complicit in ensuring the ultimate irrelevancy of the GOP. Immigrant groups —- even those who came legally through the front door —- have generally remained, generations later, in the Democrat camp.

Donald Trump’s surprising popularity shouldn’t be so surprising.  He is giving voice to the frustrations many Americans feel and are unable to articulate for fear of being slurred or unfairly labeled. 

Donald Trump has no such concerns. For that we should be grateful.


Gannett in the throes of solo winging

June 30, 2015

Gannett, the parent company of the Arizona Republic newspaper, is winging it as a solo entity as of Monday.

The article in industry insider Poynter reports “19,600 employees of Gannett newspapers will be working for a new company — untethered from growing and prosperous television stations and digital ventures.”

It can’t get much worse for readers of the Arizona daily, expecting news and getting, instead, rehash under the not very clever heading “Week in Review.” Everything you’ve already read is served up again as appetizing as  cold porridge. Cronkite Journalism students write in trendy colloquialisms (“we reached out,” “she went missing,” “functionality“), and mismatched tenses. Editors are either on vacation or were laid off.

Poynter points out the New Gannett begins life with two clear challenges: Revenues, dragged down by weak print advertising, were off 9 percent in the first quarter, and the second quarter does not look much better.  Results have been similar at NewsQuest, the group of regional British papers Gannett owns, which was hit by a work stoppage in recent weeks to protest cuts.

If you’re looking for movie and restaurant reviews to sweeten the relentless liberalism, radical politics, amnesty push and  “gay” agenda  olio, the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) is for you. Want unbiased news reports written in proper English? You’ll have to move on.


SCOTUS: Citizenship no longer matters when voting

June 29, 2015

In deciding to deny the petition for certiorari in the key election case Kobach, et al. v. Election Assistance Commission, (background here) the United States Supreme Court has summarily decided that citizenship is of no consequence in voting in U.S. elections.

At issue was the question of whether Arizona and Kansas could require voters to prove their citizenship when registering to vote with what has become known as the “federal form.” The form pertains to state and federal elections. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach led the suit against the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC), on an appeal of the Tenth U.S. Circuit Court decision.


SCOTUS redefines marriage

June 26, 2015

Marriage no longer a union of one man and one woman

Our Founders didn’t realize it when they wrote the Constitution and Bill of Rights, but they guaranteed same-sex couples the “fundamental right” to marry.

In a  5-4 ruling in Obergefell v Hodges, the United States Supreme Court discovered the right of same-sex couples to marry falls under equal protection clause of 14th amendment.

Justice Antonin Scalia ridiculed his colleague Anthony Kennedy’s swing-vote interpretation, writing, “The opinion is couched in a style that is as pretentious as its content is egotistic. Of course the opinion’s showy profundities are often profoundly incoherent.”

Two years ago, Justice Kennedy joined the Court’s four decidedly liberal Justices to strike down a provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act that defined marriage, for purposes of over a thousand federal laws and programs, as a union between a man and a woman only. Today those same liberals, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor formed the majority with Kennedy.

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas dissented.

Barack Obama joyously greeted the news by calling the court’s ruling a “victory for America.”

“This decision affirms what millions of Americans already believe in their hearts: When all Americans are treated as equal, we are all more free,” he said.

Extremists incrementally transforming America

June 25, 2015

“We need to put the American flag down”

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.”

Michelle Obama, who attended Princeton and Harvard Law School on scholarships, oddly acknowledged, “For the first time in my adult lifetime I’m really proud of my country.”  Not as widely publicized was this outlandish comment: “We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation….and he (Barack Obama) is prepared t do it.“

The offensive comments maligning America taken in stride then, have now assumed a renewed fervor. Political correctness reigns to such an extent that when a psychotic 9th grade dropout, citing a racist “manifesto” as his reason for mowing down nine black innocents in a South Carolina church Bible study group, people fall over themselves to jettison historic Civil War symbols that were an integral part of the landscape before his senseless massacre. Confederate flags have been removed from the shelves of major retailers.

Politicians and celebrities race to weigh in on the “vile” history of the flag, now vanishing from statehouses where it has flown in unity with Old Glory. Due to the despicable actions of a deranged 21-year-old, there are now efforts to dismantle statues depicting Civil War soldiers in parks and courthouse squares where many have stood for a century. The war between the states, where family loyalties were often divided, ended in 1865.   

Former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, a Democrat, is a lone voice as he encourages people to understand the “complicated history of the Civil War” as they call for the removal of the Confederate flag across the country. His statement can be read here.

What thinking Americans, seeing the national knee bent in supplication to political correctness, would have doubted that this demand would follow as hate monger and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan used the horrific slaughter to declare:

“I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag.”  His comments, made at a worship service,  were met with cheers and applause. He added, “Who are we fighting today? It’s the people that carry the American flag.”
