Jerk or liar? Biden v. Hillary Dem heartburn producer

August 2, 2015

Commie wealth confiscator Sanders warming liberal cockles

American liberals are suffering from Clinton Fatigue, just as Republicans are afflicted with a similar malady known as Chronic Bush Syndrome. Republicans however have an abundance of candidates from which to evaluate and eventually nominate. Democrats have Hillary — with a favorability rating at the flushable level of 40% — according to a recent Quinnipiac survey.  She tanks among Democrat voters when gauged as “honest and trustworthy.” This could be why. Or this. Or perhaps this. Maybe this.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self-described “Democratic Socialist,” who was elected as an Independent and is now running for the presidency as a wealth redistributionist (a basic tenet of communism) Democrat — is pulling some stronger numbers than Hillary, shocking seasoned politicos. Demonizing achievers is his gig.

Meanwhile, Obama’s VP Joe Biden, known as the gaffe machine, has reportedly been meeting with advisors to explore the idea of taking on Hillary in Iowa and New Hampshire.

On the Republican side, Business Insider picks Who’s In and Who’s Out for the Aug. 6, first GOP debate. The best popcorn is Orville Redenbacher’s.


Trump retreats from his stance on illegal invasion

July 31, 2015

Inconsistent ramblings on key issue trouble conservatives

Donald Trump has opened a commanding lead in Republican national presidential polls, sprinting ahead of the crowded GOP field with a 20 percent lead in Thursday’s Quinnipiac survey. His numbers are also soaring in Arizona where the Phoenix-based MBQF Consulting survey reports he holds “a staggering 2 to 1 advantage over his closest opponent.”

Most political observers base Trump’s strong showing on the fact that he gives a voice to the frustrations of Americans who are primed to hear a candidate meaningfully address the deplorable and costly illegal invasion that is flooding  our country unabated. Here in the border state of Arizona, 5.000 people stood in line in searing July temperatures to hear and cheer his message at the packed Phoenix Convention Center.

Now Powerline, a reliably conservative site, runs a provocative post, titled “Trump goes soft on immigration.” In his column John Hinderaker uses Trump’s disturbing quotes from this bizarre CNN interview, which also rates coverage on Breitbart.

To refer to Trump’s views as inconsistent would be generous. In truth his incoherent ramblings appear to be indistinguishable from those of any Democrat as he calls for “legal status,” immediately after saying he would deport all in the United States illegally and then allow the “good ones” to reenter through an “expedited process” and live here legally, though not as citizens.

But, “later down the line, who knows what’s going to happen?” he muses. He clarified that this meant citizenship would be “something I would think about, but I would say right now no. I’m not open to it. I would say legal status.”

When asked what he would do with the so-called DREAMers, Trump responded, “We’re going to do something. I’ve been giving it so much thought, you know you have a….on a humanitarian basis, you have a lot of deep thought going into this, believe me. I actually have a big heart….I mean, a lot of people don’t understand that, but the DREAMers, it’s a tough situation, we’re going to do something, and one of the things we’re going to do is expedite — when somebody’s terrific, we want them back here, but they have to be legally….”

The words “flash in the pan” are beginning to take on new meaning.


Obama expands executive action for illegals

July 23, 2015

When is enough, enough?

The job of Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, is well-defined, his duties unambiguous. The office is entrusted to guard America against terrorism; ensure our nation’s border is secure; enforce our immigration laws; have national readiness programs in place to respond to, and recover from, disasters. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is also under the purview of the sprawling department.

Since it was established in 2002, our security has lessened and our sovereign border has become meaningless. We repeatedly hear our generous legal immigration system referred to as “broken.”

Watch this recent appearance of Jeh Johnson before a congressional committee. It won’t take long to realize that his disconnect on the criminality associated with illegal immigration is mind-boggling. The safety and security of American citizens obviously are less important than keeping the floodgates to Mexico and other third world countries swung wide.

Now we learn that the Obama administration is moving forward with plans to further expand a waiver program that will allow additional illegal aliens to remain in the United States rather than face deportation or be required to apply for legal status from their native countries. But that’s not the half of it.  Obama’s generosity is boundless.

To facilitate this twisted scheme, the Department of Homeland Security issued this proposed rule earlier this week intended to implement changes to a waiver program instituted under Barack Obama’s executive action on illegal immigration in 2013. The action, which bypassed congress, created a waiver allowing foreign nationals illegally residing in the U.S. to facilitate the entry of a spouse children — including their spouses and their children, parents, siblings, or even fiancés, circumventing the normal immigration process if they claim their absence would create an “extreme hardship.”

Family Reunification or Chain Migration  is a means of bringing each illegal alien’s entire clan into the United States.  Center for Immigration Studies is a good resource. The organization has been addressing this issue and its many ramifications for years.

In 2008, when then-candidate Barack Obama vowed to “fundamentally transform America,” the foolish crowds cheered,  He is fulfilling that promise by transforming Americans themselves, into a less white, uneducated, impoverished populace who have no attachment to our history, language or laws. And of greatest importance to Barack Obama, they will be a permanent Democrat voting bloc.

Currently the U.S. issues over 1 million new green cards every year, resulting in approximately 42 million immigrants. Roughly 13% of our population is now foreign-born, up from 4.7% in 1970.  States such as New York, California, New Jersey, and Florida are comprised of 20% or more foreign-born, with California checking in at 27%. These numbers are from 2012. Even without any mass immigration bill, the foreign-born population is expected to rise to 60 million within ten years, according to a congressional report.  A record 1 in 5 U.S. residents speak a language other than English at home

That number includes presidential candidate Jeb Bush. “Our grandkids, almost all of them speak Spanish, two of them also speak a little Arabic,” the former Florida governor added, during this Spanish language interview.

When is enough, enough? 


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.


Scott Walker launches GOP presidential campaign

July 13, 2015

“Proven fighter, proven winner” begins race with ideological, geographical advantages

After a host of lackluster retreads and iffy Republicans have announced as 2016 GOP presidential candidates —- 14 others, to be exact —- Wisconsin Gov.Scott Walker declares his candidacy today. His late entry was hinged on getting the stalled state budget on his desk and signed.

Walker, 47, is the fifteenth candidate, but the one many conservatives have been waiting for since his energizing speech (video) at the  Iowa Freedom Summit in January.

After going head-to-head with the Wisconsin’s unions, he and his family endured threats. Walker faced thousands of protestors at the Capitol. But he prevailed, waging a successful battle against the $3.6 billion budget deficit, job losses and a double-digit tax increase. He won the race for governor three times in the last four years, winning a recall election in a state that was previously under Democrat control for over thirty years —- the only governor in U.S. history to declare victory in a gubernatorial recall election.

Scott Walker is a proven winner. In 2008 when running as county executive, he received  nearly 60 percent of the votes in a county that went two-thirds for Barack Obama.

National Review reported in May that Walker has visited border states and met with Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, causing him to adopt a firmer stance on illegal immigration, and in the process separating himself from the politically correct, open border, squish pack —- even moderating his own former position. National Review identifies Walker’s position as “hard-line.” We call it rational.

In advance of his announcement, the liberal media has been working overtime to marginalize him, though his successes stand as strong testament to his conservative commitment. Besides getting right-to-work legislation passed, he expanded  school-voucher availability, signed legislation repealing a 48-hour waiting period for gun purchases, implemented mandatory drug testing for food-stamp recipients and banned abortions after 20 weeks.

Democrats openly acknowledge, Scott Walker, not Jeb! Bush, is the man to watch. Our May 12, post on Walker can be read here. In it we noted the recent Quinnipiac Poll showing the as-yet-undeclared candidate Walker leading the Iowa Republican caucus pack, with establishment favorite Jeb Bush at a distant seventh. Across the polling board, Walker was hitting it out of the park.

Time will tell if the momentum holds.


Donald Trump expected to draw thousands in Phoenix

July 10, 2015

Focus on illegal immigration resonates

Due to overwhelming demand for tickets to hear presidential candidate Donald Trump, his Saturday, July 11 event is moving from the Arizona Biltmore Resort to the much larger Phoenix Convention Center.*

Within hours after it was announced that Trump was scheduling a visit, organizers began scrambling to locate a larger crowd accommodating venue. At last count, over 3,500 people have signed up for the free tickets at www.standwithtrump.eventbrite.com.  Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio will accompany Trump, who will be speaking on illegal immigration.

Trump’s poll numbers have surged, topping out the GOP candidate list, according to this just released national survey. Rasmussen reports that most Americans agree with Trump on the criminality associated with illegals.

The Washington Post reports that Jeff Flake — who has the lowest rating in the U.S. Senate, 3-points below bottom-dragger John McCain — attempted to pressure Maricopa County GOP chairman Tyler Bowyer not to sponsor the event.

But Bowyer would have none of it, instead issuing a statement in response to Flake’s comments saying the party is “thrilled” to welcome Trump. Bowyer accused the senator of violating former president Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment: “Thou shall not speak ill of any other Republican.”

“It is saddening that at a time when Republicans should be exposing the negligence and failed policies of Democrats — from sanctuary cities to DACA and catch-and-release to Obama’s refusal to secure the border — some Republicans choose to instead gossip about which GOP presidential candidate was invited to meet with voters in their home county,” the statement read.

Amnesty-supporting Flake declared Trump’s views as not reflective of the Republican Party.

“As an elected official and as a Republican, I’m not excited about this, to say the least,” Flake said. “I don’t think that [Trump’s] views are reflective of the party, particularly in Arizona, a border state.” 

Yet in a case of views being “reflective” much closer to home, when Flake’s then 15-year-old son, Tanner, was exposed for his online spew of vile racist, anti-Semitic, and homophobic slurs, Jeff Flake actually apologized on behalf of his son, requiring nothing of him. Tanner, who used the name “ni**erkiller” as a game participant, was equally vicious in his insults of the very Hispanics his dad is working so hard to legalize, referring to Mexicans as “scum of the earth.”  Read our post “Generational Flakes.”

Jeb! starts campaigning “beyond the base”

July 9, 2015

If Jeb!, who obviously holds conservatives in contempt, is the 2016 Republican presidential nominee, our choices will be nonexistent.

Discussing his recent meeting with Mitt Romney in this Fox News outtake of an interview scheduled to air Tuesday, Jeb Bush tells Bret Baier:

“Yes, I got a lot of good advice from the last candidate who I wish was president right now — the last Republican candidate — and he validated a belief that I have which is at some point we have to start campaigning in a way that’s beyond the base.”

“Beyond the base?” That feels a whole lot like a finger in the collective eye of conservatives.

Then Jeb! further clarified his scheme:

“I think you have to be respectful of conservatives and you have to campaign hard, convince them that you’re the right guy to unite the party, but there also always ought to be an eye on the ball, of the next group of people who actually decide who the president is going to be.”

And who might that “next group” be? Clearly it’s not us.

In Sept. 2013, Seeing Red AZ noted Jeb’s lack of political acumen as he prepared to present Hillary Clinton with the 2013 Liberty Medal in “recognition of her lifelong career in public service.”  The insulting ceremony was scheduled one day short of the one year anniversary of the Benghazi terrorist attack that took place September 11, 2012.  As Secretary of State, Clinton engaged in a lengthy campaign of lies and despicable obfuscation, attempting to conceal the truth of the massacre that left 4 Americans dead, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.  The complete post is here.
