How many terror attacks before liberal policies change?

April 11, 2017

Sweden wises up — too late?

Sweden, a liberal Scandinavian nation, is having more than second thoughts regarding its laissez-faire acceptance of those claiming refugee status flooding the previously homogeneous country in recent years.

With the influx of “refugees” and so-called “migrants” from the Balkans, Turkey, North Africa and the Middle East, Sweden’s Muslim population, which chooses not to assimilate, has swelled by hundreds of thousands. Syrian, Iraqi, Iranian, Somalis and Afghanis add to that religious mix.

Sweden’s Prime Minister has vowed his country will “never go back” to recent levels of mass migration after it emerged the terrorist who killed four people in a truck attack was a Muslim asylum seeker whose application was rejected.

The Gatestone Institute carries numerous articles on the crisis facing Sweden. We have compiled a list from which to choose. These are all hard-hitting articles. Newly multicultural Sweden is now the rape capital of the West.

The U.K.’s Daily Mail details the terrorism perpetrated by Uzbekistan native Rakhmat Akilov, 39, who deliberately drove a 30-ton hijacked beer truck into pedestrians on Stockholm’s main shopping street and into the side of a department store Friday afternoon — murdering four and injuring fifteen others. Today he confessed to committing the heinous act of terrorism.

The act of cowardice was a copycat of the attack carried out in London last month, when Khalid Masood killed four pedestrians and injured dozens more with a Hyundai 4×4. Swedish police said there were clear similarities. Similar “low tech” attacks have been carried out in France and Germany.

Following the carnage, Prime Minister Stefan Lofven pledged to change Sweden’s liberal attitude, insisting the massive influx allowed during the 2015 migrant crisis will never happen again.

“Sweden will never go back to the [mass migration] we had in autumn 2015, never,” Prime Minister Lofven said on Monday. “Everyone who has been denied a permit should return home,” he naively stated. Swedish authorities gave Akilov four weeks to leave Sweden after his final asylum appeal failed in December. He was being sought by police and immigration officials for deportation –– but evaded them by simply giving a false address.

Unfortunately, the horse is already out of the barn. Muslims have large families. At 1.6 births per Swedish woman, the ethnic Swedes are not even replacing themselves. The low birthrates are the same throughout Europe, the U.S. and Canada. Pew Research has the sobering current and projected worldwide population numbers.


Susan Rice: Dealing in deception — again

April 5, 2017

Sen. James Lankford, (R-OK) and U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-NY) each members of their respective intelligence committees have expressed concerns about revelations regarding pre-election surveillance by the Obama administration of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.  The spying, which has received scant coverage in the mainstream media, was initially disclosed by President Trump and mocked by Obama operatives and their colluders in the press.

Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, is at the heart of the scrutiny.

Sen. Langford takes the allegations seriously, saying, “The accusation is that people in the Obama administration were using their offices to get access to political information. They may have been using classified documents to release names and target individuals. That is not legal and these are serious accusations. We hope Susan Rice will meet with us.”

Congressman King agreed, stating that a thorough investigation is needed. “If these accusations are true, it rises to a level of a very high scandal because it is such an abuse of privacy. It violates the law and it undermines the presidency,“ King said.

Delusional Susan Rice, Obama’s  national security adviser must think she’s still on his payroll. Few will forget her deceptive talking points (video) as she made the rounds of Sunday morning network news shows following the 2012 attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya.. Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed — not by supposed protesters upset over a video depicting Mohammad, as she claimed — but by terrorists.

Circa News exposes the facts regarding the computer logs that former President Obama’s team left behind in the White House indicating Susan Rice accessed numerous intelligence reports during Obama’s last seven months in office that contained National Security Agency intercepts involving Donald Trump and his associates.

Intelligence sources said the logs discovered by National Security Council staff suggested Rice’s interest in the NSA materials, some of which included unmasked Americans’ identities, appeared to begin last July around the time Trump secured the GOP nomination and accelerated after Trump’s election in November and launched a transition that continued through January.

Andrew McCarthy, writing for National Review points out, “Her interest was not in national security but to advance the political interests of the Democratic party,” calling Susan Rice’s White House unmasking “an abuse of power” and “Watergate-style scandal.” McCarthy, a former chief federal prosecutor, reminds his readers “the thing to bear in mind is that the White House does not do investigations — not criminal investigations, not intelligence investigations.”

Obama’s White House honed its skills in cover-ups.


British murderer ID’d as ISIS inspired terrorist

March 24, 2017

London’s mayor advises get used to it

The U.K.’s Daily Mail provides a detailed report on the homegrown middle-aged Brit turned Muslim convert — and ultimately, radical jihadist — responsible for the deaths of four and what are described as “catastrophic” injuries to at least 40 others. As he carried out his depravity on Westminster Bridge and outside Parliament, his weapons were a rental car and two knives, making tracking such lunatics through weaponry purchases impossible.

Among those killed were an unarmed police officer, a mother of two and a U.S. citizen vacationing with his wife as they celebrated their 25th anniversary.

British Prime Minister Theresa May revealed authorities knew of the attacker, who had previously been imprisoned for violent attacks,  but considered him a “peripheral” figure who was “not part of the current intelligence picture.”

Wednesday’s attack was reminiscent of the atrocities in Nice and Berlin where trucks plowed into crowds, killing 86 people in the French Riviera city last July and 12 at a market in the German capital just days before Christmas. 

The report includes a section on how ISIS terrorists have brought death to Europe. Providing overviews of  carnage in France, Belgium, Germany and Denmark.

London’s mayor Sadiq Khan, a Muslim elected last May, reacted to the slaughter by warning Londoners to be vigilant, saying, “Terror attacks are part and parcel of living in a major city.”

That was not always the case, Mr. Mayor.


Calif. Dems threaten border wall contractors

March 22, 2017

A trio of California Democrat lawmakers have issued a warning for contractors who sign up for President Donald Trump’s border wall construction project along the U.S./ Mexico: Build it, and we will divest from your company.

This latest act of defiance stems from President Donald Trump fulfilling his campaign pledge to secure our nation’s sovereign, but easily breached border, with a wall. This issue was a winner with American citizens, who swept him into office last November.

The state lawmakers have introduced the cagily written Assembly Bill 946 that would compel the state to drop its pension investments in any companies involved in the construction project.

“This is a wall of shame and we don’t want any part of it,” Assemblyman Phil Ting said in a statement. “Immigrant stories are the history of America and this is a nightmare.”

What Ting neglects to add is that actual immigrants arrive legally. Illegal aliens use stealth to enter our country, and once here facilitate their existence and access to social services by using stolen or fraudulent identification.

He has another ace up his sleeve to “put more money in the pockets of those who need it most.” He devotes a page of his legislative website to checking eligibility forfree money from the government.” Of course the government doesn’t generate money.  Hardworking taxpayers are the ones he desires to fleece, with his “You Work, I Eat” scheme.

Assembly Bill 946 sprang to life on Monday, three days after the U.S. Customs and Border Protection requested proposals forborder wall prototypes.

The proposed legislation requires the California Public Employee Retirement System and the California State Teachers Retirement System — the two largest public pension funds in the nation, with investments of $312 billion and $202 billion, respectively — to liquidate investments in any company involved with the wall’s construction within a year. It would also require the pension-fund management to report a list of those companies to the Legislature.

This lunacy is the brainchild of Democrats Phil Ting (San Francisco), Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher (San Diego), and Eduardo Garcia, (Coachella), who must have missed the news that on March 21 alone Customs and Border Protection agents reported seizing over $40 Million in cocaine headed for American streets.

Ting’s district includes the sanctuary city of San Francisco where Kate Steinle, 32, was senselessly murdered by an illegal alien, repeat drug felon, using a stolen gun. He had been deported five times, and was just released from jail. She was strolling the pier walking arm-in-arm with her father when her life was cut short.

In 2011, ABC 10 News in San Diego reported the Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah has a long-established foothold adjacent to the city. Does Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, who represents the area, care?

We need a wall.  We need it now.


Chicago illustrates repudiated Dems losing strategy

February 27, 2017

These ain’t your grandparent’s Democrats

Chicago is a case study in what extreme Democrat politics has wrought. It’s Barack Obama’s adopted hometown, where he served a stint in the state senate before filling a vacant U.S. Senate seat. Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich was convicted of and is serving time for, among other things, attempting to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Obama after his 2008 election as president. 

Chicago is where the Obama’s attended for twenty years the Afro-centric church led by America-hating Rev. Jeremiah Wright. He and Michelle were married and their daughters were baptized by the same Jeremiah Wright who cursed America. Chicago is where Obama kicked off his presidential campaign in the living room of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, a husband and wife team of convicted domestic terrorists.

None of it mattered to the party faithful.

The city of Chicago has been led by Democrat mayors since Methuselah was a tot. Since 1999 mayoral candidates run under the same “nonpartisan” subterfuge as they do in Phoenix. They are still Dems. A couple of Whigs were elected in the 1800’s.

The city is now run by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obama’s former chief of staff who has overseen more violence than generals in war zones.

Chicago’s WGN-TV reported on the escalations of murders this year over last. In January there were 51 murders in the city. There were 234 shooting incidents and 299 shooting victims, 8 more than in January 2016. This bloody carnage includes child victims of the gangsta thugs.

Rational minds would think it was time to give the boot to extremist liberal ideologues such as Jeff Flake’s former congressional cohort, Luis Gutierrez, who paid his lobbyist wife over $300,000 from campaign funds.  His daughters also were on the payroll. This sterling character is the one who publicly thanked now-Sen .Jeff Flake for helping him “turn more red states blue.” They are longtime amnesty buddies.

We’ve saved the most recent liberal insanity for dessert. Townhall serves upUnreal: Chicago Names City Street After Terrorist.”

Aldermen (Councilmen) approved a measure to name a city street after Oscar Lopez Rivera, the founder of the Puerto Rican terror group FALN, which was responsible for 120 bombings and armed robberies in the U.S. during the ‘70s and ‘80s that killed nine and injured hundreds of others. Terrorist Lopez Rivera’s 70-year sentence was commuted by Barack Obama in the days before he left office.

“Discover the Networks, a guide to the political left,” has devoted a fact-filled page to Gutierrez.

 


Score: Pres. Trump: 72 — 9th Circuit Court of Appeals: 0

President’s moratorium on non-vetted “refugees” places national security above political naïveté

Jessica Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), has just released a compelling, fact-filled  report that places President Donald Trump squarely on the right side of this crucial national security issue.

A review of information compiled by a Senate committee in 2016 reveals that 72 individuals from the seven countries — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen — covered in President Trump’s vetting executive order have been convicted in terror cases since the 9/11 attacks. These facts stand in stark contrast to the assertions by the Ninth Circuit judges who have blocked the president’s order on the basis that there is no evidence showing a risk to the United States in allowing aliens from these seven terror-associated countries to enter the United States.

In June 2016 the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, then chaired by new Attorney General Jeff Sessions, released a report on individuals convicted in terrorist cases. Using open sources (because the Obama administration refused to provide government records), the report found that 380 out of 580 people convicted in these cases since 9/11 were foreign-born. The report is no longer available on the Senate website, but a summary published by Fox News is available here.

Read the complete CIS report here.

SRAZ includes the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit denial issued Feb. 9, 2017 by a three-judge panel. The left-leaning court is the most overturned in the nation.


AZ legislators’ bill suspends refugee resettlement program

February 3, 2017

Refugee resettlement has been in the forefront of national news since Pres. Donald Trump issued an executive order suspending the program for 120 days until adequate vetting of those from terror sponsoring nations is in place. The president is of the opinion that American security is more important than political correctness.  After the Boston marathon carnage, San Bernardino, Orlando and a host of other bloody attacks by resettled but unwilling to assimilate refugees who bear allegiance to ISIS, few disagree with that premise as evidenced by recent polls.

Rasmussen Reports indicates most voters approve of President Trump’s temporary halt to refugees and visitors from seven Middle Eastern and African countries until the government can do a better job of keeping out individuals who are terrorist threats.  The recent survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a temporary ban on refugees from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen until the federal government improves its ability to screen out potential terrorists from coming here. Thirty-three percent (33%) are opposed, while 10% are undecided.

The Arizona legislature is also responding to the issue with SB 1468(click link to read) which amends Title 1, Chapter 2, Article 4 of the Arizona Revised Statutes with the addition of Section 1-272, relating to refugee resettlement. It was introduced by Sens. Judy Burges and Sonny Borrelli and Reps. Mark Finchem, Anthony Kern, Vince Leach and  Don Shooter. The bill indefinitely suspends Arizona’s participation in the resettlement program and imposes a fine of $1,000 a day per refugee on any charity or group providing services to refugees.

Pew Research Center notes that with 4,110 resettled in Arizona in 2016, our state is number six among the top ten states to receive the largest number of refugees.

Before leaving office Barack Obama announced that 10,000 Syrians would be allowed entry the following year. As of Nov. 19, 2016, 31 Governors across the country were concerned enough by the potential for terror that they opposed the entry of new Syrian refugees according to this CNN map. (scroll down.)

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey issued this press release stating his immediate plan to halt the placement of any new refugees in Arizona a year ago.

The ‘flash mobs’ protesting these reasonable restrictions have been mobilized at airports around the nation by the same activist groups that protest a security wall along our southern border or other efforts to protect our nation and citizens from harm. John McCain’s longtime financier, Socialist billionaire George Soros, a leftist, open borders proponent, has funded numerous such anarchist organizations to create havoc. We saw them burn down Ferguson, Missouri, terrorize and ultimately shut down those who dare to engage in free speech on university campuses, and screech vulgarities on the mall in Washington, D.C. on the day of President Trump’s inaugural.

Today Paris is once again under attack. This time by a machete wielding man shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ as he attacked French soldiers at the Louvre Museum.

It’s past time to wise up. Arizona’s legislators are on the right track.
