Obama mocked the right border security idea

A piranha filled moat would be cost-effective deterrent

It’s no secret illegal immigration is a major problem in the United States. It is a devastating reality in Arizona where the sieve-like border provides a portal for a seemingly unending flood of illegal aliens, drugs and crime.

While chaos reigned on the U.S./Mexico border, former Arizona governor Janet Napolitano became notorious for her derisive 2005 quip, “You show me a 50-foot wall and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder at the border. That’s the way the border works.” 

In 2008 we were told a virtual fence was to be a technological advancement that would provide an alternative to “divisive” walls and federal agents policing the Arizona-Mexico border. The multimillion dollar project was a virtual flop and was ultimately scrapped.

Then in 2011 Obama stood at the Texas/Mexico border and declared Republicans will “never be satisfied” (video) by the amount of border protection he claimed to have put in place, although the border is more dangerous than ever. “Maybe they’ll need a moat,“ Obama mocked. “Maybe they’ll want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied.” 

2014 saw the orchestrated deluge of over 90,000 illegal children —- mostly Central American and Mexican —- into the United States.

We now read that approximately 39,000 more unaccompanied minors are expected to enter the U.S. in another surge of illegal Central American children. Their parents believe they will be given amnesty via Obama’s unilateral executive orders  and be the conduits for the absurdity known as chain migration for other family members.

The often used and obviously erroneous number of invaders of our sovereign nation has been given as 11 million for years. They keep coming. The number is not static. Immigration Counters aggregates from the latest government and private sources, analyzes trending data and provides a more accurate count of the staggering influx —- many from terror-sponsoring countries around the globe.

The 2016 election cycle is just around the corner. The illegal invasion should be a paramount consideration as you select your candidates.  Attend forums. Ask office holders and office seekers the hard questions. Don’t equivocate or allow them to bluff their answers. Accept no double talk or finessing of these critical and costly issues. American citizens are entitled to a secure homeland. Silence is acquiescence. 

The future of our nation is at stake.

USA Today warns of potential for calamity with frail, penetrable, power grid

Conspiracy theories are nothing new. “Wars and Rumors of Wars” date back to warnings in biblical prophecy, and preparedness is simply wise. Peace loving nations maintain military forces for that very reason.

Back in the 1950’s regular folks built bomb shelters in their backyards, stocked them with canned goods, made solemn vows regarding who they wouldn’t be able to let in regardless of kinship, and fervently prayed the Russians would rethink bombing the American heartland. School children were taught how to prepare for an atomic bomb by this “Duck and Cover” film that was shown in classrooms across America. It was advertised as the “official civil defense film, produced in cooperation with the Federal Civil Defense Administration, in consultation with the Safety Commission of the National Education Association.”

Fast forward. In recent times, those originally demeaned as “survivalists,” are now mainstream “preppers” finding kindred spirits at conventions and in popular warehouse clubs that are now stocking emergency freeze-dried and dehydrated food with 25-year shelf life, generators, 55-gallon emergency water barrels, with filtration systems and more. It’s now known as “self reliance.”

And why not? Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the American Red Cross run “preparedness“ ads directing listeners to their websites. They tell us first responders will not be available and it’s up to us to make a family emergency plan. Americans are warned in 13 languages to learn more about specific hazard types, including natural disasters, technological and accidental hazards, and— yes, even  terrorist hazards.”

Such thinking is no longer confined to those previously labeled as conservatives crazies. This past week the left-of-center USA Today ran a front page “Special Report” with a full jump page detailing the vulnerabilities of America’s power grid, how attacks could cripple the country and threaten lives. The bleak picture begins with the immediate problems if such a cyber attack were to occur, through just four days of a power outage hack. Picture no electricity, water, phone service, hospitals, transit at a standstill and stores stripped bare of food. The article advises routinely keeping gas tanks at least half-filled, having hand-cranked emergency radios and at minimum, one gallon of water for each person in the family as well as at least a three-day supply of non-perishable foods.

Back in 2009 we reported on preparation of mass graves at Arizona’s National Memorial Cemetery, something we now know is being replicated across the United States. This video shows the Phoenix cemetery. This is Georgia, They are but two disturbing examples.

In the meantime, get one of those hand-cranked radios, that also run on batteries or solar power. Lay in a supply of batteries, manual can openers, matches, gallon-size sealable plastic bags, peanut butter, canned tuna, soup and plenty of water. Prepare a good first aid kit and make sure you have a supply of necessary medications. Think of toilet paper as a marketable commodity and lay in a good stockpile. You have room.  Store rolls under your beds. They won’t spoil or become devalued like cash. 

Just a thought.


John Kerry: Neville Chamberlain clone puts world at risk & Update

March 26, 2015

Students of history know there is no peace though appeasement

Within days of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei presiding over and agreeing with crowds shouting “Death to America,”  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is photographed with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif. The two men are working to broker a nuclear deal for the despotic and demonic Iranian regime.

The photo is reminiscent of British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain meeting with Adolph Hitler. Chamberlain claimed his accord with the Nazi leader would bring “peace in our time,” after signing a non-aggression pact with Germany in 1938.

 For a much different take on accommodating enemies of liberty watch this classic video, “A Time for Choosing,” an illuminating speech delivered by Ronald Reagan, October 27, 1964.

 An inspiring excerpt:

‘Admittedly, there’s a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson of history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face—that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight or surrender.”

Shouts of “Death to America!” aid in nuclear negotiations.

The Obama administration is caving to Iranian demands regarding expansion of the scope of its nuclear program as negotiators work to finalize a framework agreement in the coming days, according to sources familiar with the disgraceful deal.

Nat’l ID card: Hypocrisy reigns at Arizona Republic

March 12, 2015

Illegal aliens accorded more leeway than American citizens

The few remaining readers of the Arizona Republic are well acquainted with the tactic. Like a nagging shrew, repetition is the name of the game. The Sunday March 8, edition took the editorial route, rife with insults and scare tactics, beginning with the headline: “Anti-ID law brings troubles for travelers.” The opening line? “Now they’ve done it.” The fear-mongering comes with the threat of not being able to board an airplane without complying with governmental data gathering. Arizona legislators are called “paranoid,“ and compared to ”knuckleheaded teenagers,” debating “their little fist-shaking bills” and identified as “dollar-store constitutionalists” passing “lunatic legislation.”

This embarrassing attempt at journalism was followed by a March 11, ‘My Turn’ column by the policy director of the Coalition for a Secure Driver’s License in Washington, DC. He is so enamored with pro-amnesty baloney-slinging con man and state Sen. Bob Worsley, (who claimed during his campaign to favor small government) that he mentions what he calls “Worsley’s bill”  four times in two abutting paragraphs. The bill would repeal Arizona’s 2008 legislation prohibiting implementation of this massive governmental overreach.

The idea of American citizens having to produce government authorized identification is repugnant by its very nature. One that unleashes biometric mechanisms for unwarranted surveillance is reprehensible.

The national identity scheme known as REAL ID mandates that each state create a standardized electronic database of all information from every driver’s license issued.  Further, it requires each state to link its electronic database to that of every other state in the nation, effectively creating a nationwide database containing the private information of every individual with a driver’s license in the entire country.

REAL ID would become the key component of a system of identity papers, databases, status and identity checks —- in effect, an “internal passport” with the capacity to track individuals’ movements and activities.

When the issue was illegal aliens, the Arizona Republic derogatorily referred to H.B.1070 as the “show me your papers law,” since a provision allowed law enforcement to check the legal status of persons detained during investigations or traffic stops. When a much more egregious law affecting American citizens is the issue, the hypocrites at the newspaper wholeheartedly support it.

Background on this disreputable issue is fascinating and even more evidence that REAL ID appeals to no one. Arizona banned implementation of the REAL ID Act on June 17, 2008 with passage of  H.B.2677. Although all but characterized by the newspaper as arising from right-wing spew fomenting in a cauldron in the basement of the state legislature, the bill actually had widespread —- or “bi-partisan” support in the newspaper’s favored jargon. It was sponsored by leftist former state Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, now representing AZ CD 9, and former Senate President Russell Pearce, an unwavering conservative.

Further, the ban was signed at the urging of the ACLU by then-Gov. Janet Na­politano, a far left Democrat, who later, as Barack Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, headed the department charged with implementing the legislation. Former Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, opted not to partic­ipate in REAL ID. Newly elected Gov. Doug Ducey, also a Republican, has yet to address the issue. His actions will be closely watched.


Netanyahu’s speech scores big in showdown over Iran

March 3, 2015

Barack Obama has his own reasons for continuing to contemptuously disregard Israel’s concerns regarding a nuclear Iran —- which presents a global threat that should concern us all. The rift between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reached epic proportions leading up to Netanyahu’s address to Congress this morning.

On Monday, Netanyahu downplayed their increasingly strained relationship, but said he has a “moral obligation” to speak out against a deal with Iran that potentially threatens Israel’s existence.

Much to Obama’s consternation the Prime Minister was invited to address the joint session by House Speaker John Boehner. Dozens of Democrats including Arizona’s CD 3 U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva are boycotting the speech. Although no members of the Obama administration attended the event, Netanyahu was interrupted by applause 41 times.

Further sticking his finger in the Prime Minister’s eye, Obama announced he had scheduled a conference call on the crisis in Ukraine to coincide with the timing of the speech.

Still gracious while underscoring Israel’s right to defend itself, Netanyahu said, “My speech is not intended to show any disrespect to President Obama or the esteemed office that he holds. I have great respect for both. But while American leaders worry about the security of their country, Israeli leaders worry about the survival of their country.”

Netanyahu charged that Iran’s “goons in Gaza, its lackeys in Lebanon and the Revolutionary Guard in the Golan Heights” act as its proxies. Iran’s ‘global terror network’ poses a threat with ‘tentacles of terror region throughout the region.”

GOP Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) summed up the speech using these words, “Today, Prime Minister Netanyahu asked for America’s unwavering support for Israel, our friend and ally in a tumultuous region,” adding, “It’s unfortunate the Prime Minister even had to ask.”  Burr is the son of a Methodist minister.

Fifty Democrats  —- 42 House and 7 Senate members joined by VP Joe Biden, shamefully boycotted Netanyahu’s address. Many will remember Democrats at their own 2012 national Convention booing the addition of God and Jeering the mention of Jerusalem in their party platform. It’s in their genes.

This ad sponsored by the Republican Jewish Coalition aired in advanced of today’s speech.

Watch Netanyahu’s impassioned speech here.


AZ Republic heading for last roundup

September 13, 2014

Still trying to scalp readers as it rides off to the sunset

Raw evidence that the carcass of the extreme leftwing Arizona Republic is heaving its last breaths comes by way of the news of further pink slips amid what is cunningly referred to as “operational streamlining” involving approximately a dozen positions —- this time.

Newsroom positions will be renamed and employees will be subject to the humiliation of reapplying for their current jobs. As new hires, benefits will likely be delayed until a probationary period has passed, factoring in a cost savings to the newspaper and leaving any “rehired” employees in limbo.

The failing newspaper, rife with seemingly endless layoffs, cutbacks and increasing reliance on students from ASU’s liberal Cronkite School of Journalism, recently informed nearly two dozen community reporters they would need to work from their laptops at Starbucks and McDonald’s — which supply free WiFi — and consider their cars to be their offices.

As the newspaper’s brass pushes its reporters onto the streets, the subscription rates have just skyrocketed nearly ten dollars a month. Quite a deal if you enjoy having your intelligence routinely insulted and being relentlessly deluged with open borders and same sex issues.

Given its propensities, the future of the local Gannett holding has grown ever more bleak. We recently noted the “separation” of fading print assets from its broadcast and digital businesses. Gannett, which operates 82 daily publications including USA Today, is the parent company of that fattening agent of the anorexic pages of the Arizona Republic —- often referred to on this site as the Periódico de la República de Arizona, for its relentless pro-amnesty positions. It also owns KPNX-TV 12, the NBC affiliate in Phoenix. The mirror-image local entities have been housed in the same building since 2010.

Jim Romenesko details Gannett’s 16 job descriptions and salary ranges under the “Newsroom of the Future” parameter.  He writes, “each newsroom employee at each Gannett property must be in one of these positions. They are all digital-centric and aligned with Gannett’s new “Picasso” initiative, in which journalism is driven solely by metrics and journalists are expected to be marketers and ‘community connectors.’”

Unbiased reporting doesn’t exist at the Arizona Republic. The entire newspaper reeks editorial content. If you’re actually seeking untainted news, you’ve gone to the wrong place. And now you’ll have to shell out close to ten more bills each month for the insult.


Obama regime reconfigures invasion as “a humanitarian crisis” needing $billions

July 9, 2014

Just when you think Barack Obama might have exhausted his ideas on how to bring the United States of America to its knees, he has pulled yet another Marxist scheme from his endless bag of tricks.

Now he is requesting a nearly $4 billion taxpayer-funded bailout to resettle the reported 52,000 “immigrant children” flooding our borders.  The words “humanitarian crisis” with or without the word “urgent,“ are glibly tossed around as he is now characterizes the onslaught as “refugees” fleeing political turbulence in Central America.

This is a “crisis” contrived by Obama.

We are told the money is needed to set up new detention facilities, conduct more aerial surveillance, hire more immigration judges and Border Patrol agents to respond to the contrived assault of 52,000 children on the U.S.

Let’s not forget that the Obama regime has spent years saying the border has never been more secure than it is now. We’ve heard that mantra from Obama and previously from former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano in her role as chief of Homeland Security as well as during her time in our state. Infamous for inaction as she ridiculed fence construction, Napolitano continually stated, “You show me a 50-foot wall and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder. That’s the way the border works.”

Wake up, America! Under the Obama regime, we are experiencing a brand of previously unknown political turbulence ourselves. The wall we were promised has never materialized. In fact, we were told it would pose a risk to our invaders. The National Guard units dispatched to provide security to our homeland were hastily withdrawn. The $20 million highly touted technology failed. Obama’s deceitful cheap talk and costly “solutions” are fraudulent.

In the worst economy since the Great Depression, the man who considers our Constitution an annoyance and himself an emperor, now tries to convince us to pony up more money to guarantee Third World status for ourselves.

As a border state, Arizona is on the front lines in this battle. Violent drug cartels have now taken over the illegal alien transporting business. Patriots in California have blocked the buses dumping illegals in their towns. The recent Independence Day observances should energize us to stand up against oppression from an overreaching government. That’s exactly what the yearly celebrations commemorate.

Listen as Obama —- the elected leader of the United States, sworn to uphold our Constitution and protect American citizens —- boldly mocks security efforts and spews lies regarding the border.
