Illegal invaders become “Americans-in-Waiting”

February 26, 2015

Americans_in_Waiting2

Direct from the White House website comes this load of double-talk from the Council of Economic Advisors.

“The President is continuing to take action, within his legal authority, to fix our broken immigration system.  Today, the Administration announced a final rule that will allow spouses of certain high-skilled workers to contribute to the economy while they wait to obtain lawful permanent residence status (or a “green card”) through their employer. America needs a 21st century immigration system that lives up to our heritage as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants—and that grows our economy. This change, as well as the other actions announced by the President this past November, will do just that.”

Sprinkled liberally throughout this piece of flagrant deception, “Taking Action to Unlock the Economic Contributions of Americans-in-Waiting,” (from which we have excerpted this paragraph) are the words “our broken immigration system.”

America’s citizens know full well our immigration system isn’t broken. The only thing “broken” is the will of Obamacrats to enforce it. 

When the latest Labor statistics show Americans are still unemployed and underemployed in record numbers —-  with many forced to accept lower paying jobs for which they are over-qualified —- in this still fragile economy, why import workers to compete against our own citizens?

On a good day, and trying hard, we couldn’t make this stuff up.

As you watch this video compilation, pay attention to his words as Obama said, “Ultimately, our nation, like all nations, has the right and obligation to control its border and set laws for residency and citizenship.” He was right then. He is distorting the U.S. Constitution, usurping congressional authority and corrupting our generous legal immigration process now.


Laurie Roberts: The “kook” pot calling the kettle….

February 25, 2015

Right on the heels of a column earlier this week “Brnovich not the guy to investigate APS-Corp Com links” in which Laurie Roberts actually sounded like the investigative sleuth she purports to be —- she reverts back to her infantile “Kook” name calling.

In the earlier column she points out that Attorney General Mark Brnovich is too beholden to Arizona Public Service Co. to investigate major corruption claims against the utility made by a whistleblower (Letter here courtesy of 12 News) regarding cozy deal making between then-Corporation Commission chairman Gary Pierce and the company’s CEO as the utility was seeking a rate increase. APS, the largest electric utility in the state is regulated by the Arizona Corporation Commission. Arizona Public Service’s parent company, Pinnacle West, dumped $425,000 into Brnovich’s campaign coffers last year which raises the question why the power provider was so keen to influence the Attorney General’s race.

Just weeks ago, Roberts was loathe to mention Brnovich’s name. Now it’s headline material.

Yet it’s her fixation on conservatives she deems “Kooks” that continues to grasp her attention. Now she has gone even further than her usual derogatory snipes at individuals, by deeming the entire state of Arizona “Kooksville.”  In Roberts’ extremist view, legislative leaders are hard at work “to declare our independence from federal gun laws, from the Affordable Care Act, from the Environmental Protection Agency, from the Department of Justice, from Barack Obama and from just about anything else associated with the state’s most detested f-word. Federal, that is.”

There’s a slew of legislation rattling Roberts, including House Bills 2055, 2058, 2368, 2643, (Committee on Federalism & States’ Rights) and  Senate Bill 1330 (Public Safety, Military & Technology Committee) along with 2014’s Proposition 122.

Watch for Roberts to begin providing cover for soon-to-be 79-year-old John McCain as he gears up for another 6-year senate term. She’s already going after state Sen. Kelli Ward (R-LD5). The Lake Havasu lawmaker/physician is only rumored to be considering a challenge to McCain, but the status quo wagons are already beginning to circle.


Randy Parraz closes shop, trades one scheme for another

February 24, 2015

Latest scheme is $5 million Democrat registration campaign

Were Arizona conservative Republicans given an assignment of compiling radical provocateurs, the name Randy Parraz would top many lists.  The hard-left, amnesty-for-illegals ideologue was behind the effort to unseat state Senate President Russell Pearce and shows up in the most unlikely of places.

In March 2013, open-borders and anti-enforcement extremists Parraz and his failed candidate wife Lilia Alvarez (video) were forced to admit their deceptively misnamed effort “Respect Arizona,” an attempt to recall Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was doomed.  In addition to coming up short on cash to pay petition circulators, he was unable to energize rational citizens to engage in his trickery. 

Parraz, a pro-illegal, self-described “community activist,” has made a career of extremism rather than the practice of law in which he holds a degree.

But it appears Parraz’ vocation of deception has come to an abrupt end. According to the leftist Modern Times magazine, which glowingly refers to Parraz as “charismatic,” the agitating rabble-rouser is calling it quits. He recently sent out an email statement telling of his bogus handled Citizens for a Better Arizona closing shop.

“After considerable thought, reflection and debate, CBA has decided to: Cease operations as a 501 C 4 organization (effective March 1, 2015); and Initiate the formation of a $5 million fund called the Arizona Blue Campaign to register over 200,000 Democrats by October 1, 2016.”

His message caused nary a blimp on the “aw shucks” meter.


Jeb a sure loser for GOP: Reject Bush imperial dynasty

February 23, 2015

The Sunday news programs parade a panoply of potential GOP presidential candidates, giving each their obligatory sound bites followed by analysis by the panelists gauging their viability. Each in turn is weighed as to suitability to run against the  already anointed Democrat—- a problem-plagued,  Cher-like candidate known far and wide by a single name.

Although the list of potential Republican candidates is long, the party establishment powerbrokers, strategists and the eager media, appear to have already selected their donor-amassing candidate. But for multitudes of “Bush weary” conservatives, Jeb Bush is a dynasty too far.

Phyllis Schlafly, still going strong at age 90, has long argued that the American conservative movement’s purpose is to influence, not echo, the Republican Party. In this column in the Washington Times, she warns against letting the party’s “kingmakers,” the Wall Street elite and their acquiescing political consultant class coronate former Florida governor Jeb Bush.

Mincing no words, Mrs. Schlafly makes her case in a 2015 update to her landmark book a half-century ago titled “A Choice, Not an Echo,” which in 1964 became the motto of Barry Goldwater’s grassroots movement.

In her update, Mrs. Schlafly -— founder of the Eagle Forum —- argues that her party too often picks losers as candidates because of a stranglehold by the political consultant-big business-Wall Street crowd, which makes a bundle from championing moderates over conservatives.

She warns that may be happening again in 2016 in the persona of Jeb Bush, noting “closed-door events have been held for Republican mega-donors to select who will get the big money that went last time to Mitt Romney,” and that the mainstream media already are cheering on Jeb Bush. Read the complete article by Ralph Z. Hallow here

Then carve out the time to acquaint yourself with Mexico-born Columba Bush, Jeb’s wife. The revealing article, “Bush Spouse Backs Jeb, but Is Wary of Family Business,”  in the New York Times is written by  Patrick Healy and Sheryl Gay Stolberg.  It’s easy to see why it took a trio, including researcher Kitty Bennett, to compile this informative piece.

Today we ask our readers to share who your “2016 Dream Ticket’ would be —- and why? We can do better than what’s being shoved our way by the Karl Rove elites.


WH terror warning: focus on “right wing” threat — again

February 22, 2015

Obama’s former DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano issued similar report in 2009

A new administration report on security threats surfaced this past week as Barack Obama was wrapping up his three-day summit on extremism during which the words “Islamic extremists, jihadists or radical fundamental Islamic terrorists” were never uttered. Invited guests at the conference included Pro-jihad, anti-Israel Islamic clerics according to this well researched article in One News Now.

The deflecting report issued by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) instead redirects urgency toward domestic terrorist movements —- “right wingers”  —- said to be engaged in a sovereign citizen extremist movement.

 CNN which reviewed the intelligent assessment that was not made public, reports “federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to — and in some cases greater than — the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.”

Apparently missed were the grisly reports last week that fundamental Islamic terrorists escalated their ongoing bloody carnage by burning alive 40 caged Iraqis. Earlier the civilized world was horrified to see photos of the beheadings of 21 Egyptian Christians by these same ISIS fanatics. The insulting report targeting Americans comes as ISIS madness continues to spiral in unimagined ways.

In April 2009, Janet Napolitano, then Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, released this report on homegrown terrorists, singling out our own returning war vets, comparing them to Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.

Is it any wonder former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani questioned Obama’s love of America?

“We are not at war with Islam,” Obama declared, setting the tone for the conference. “We are at war with people who have perverted Islam.” Sounding a lot like Obama equating Islamic terrorist to evil done in the name of Christ (video) at the recent Prayer Breakfast, Vice President Joe Biden used his appearance at the summit to compare the virulent rise in Islamic terror attacks to right-wing extremists and militias who commit violence “in the name of the Bible.”


Bill Montgomery sets Flakes loose on county taxpayers

February 21, 2015

Imagine you’re Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. Com’on, you can do it.  You’re full of political vim and aspiration and like a good establishment soldier dutifully await a greater opportunity. The U.S. Senate sounds good. But dang! That old goat McCain is making noises about running again. He’ll be 79 in August and a six-year term would place him at a gnarly 85. Not only will the youthful glow also be off Montgomery’s rose, but playing well with that Flake family is not bringing the hoped for returns.

Rather than repeat the gruesome facts of the case involving Sen. Jeff Flake’s son Austin and daughter-in-law Logan along with her parents Todd and MaLeisa Hughes, and its potential to derail Montgomery‘s ambition, read Bill Montgomery, dead dogs & the Flakes: We got it right the first time.

Now that Montgomery has dropped all felony charges against Austin and Logan they’re suing Maricopa County and Sheriff Joe Arpaio, seeking $8 million to resurrect their formerly pristine reputations, claiming they were targeted by the Sheriff’s office and their characters were ruined by this investigation. 

“The Sheriff has a long history of bringing cases for publicity.  This case to him had everything.  It had publicity, it had a politician’s son, it had pets and the one thing it didn’t have was probable cause,” claimed lawyer Jack Wilenchik. His law partner father Dennis Wilenchik, previously represented Arpaio and cozily lists the “Maricopa County Attorney” as a client.

The Wilenchik’s, publicity seekers extraordinaire, were singing a different tune —- “Vamos Jose!” (Let’s Go, Joe!) —- with Sheriff Joe Arpaio in happier times, as they interviewed him about the “latest county news” on their podcast radio show.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a champion of animals, who has had an Animal Crimes Investigations Unit as part of his office for over a decade forwarded twenty-one charges of animal neglect and cruelty to Montgomery, recommending numerous felony charges of animal neglect and cruelty in connection with horrific abuse resulting in the deaths of nearly two dozen family pets.

On Oct. 15, a Maricopa County Grand Jury indicted both couples. At the time, Montgomery solemnly stated, “Today’s indictment is the result of a thorough review of the extensive investigation into this incident and a decision to seek charges based on objective facts. We now look forward to the next step in seeing that justice is served in this case,” he said. But God knows he wanted the hot potato to go away.

If these marginal Flakes are successful in their outrageous lawsuit, Maricopa County taxpayers will be the ones paying out millions, and that includes the families who lost their beloved pets to the Flake’s obscene neglect.

It was clear from the June 20 onset, when the dead and dying family pets were found, Bill Montgomery was loath to touch this case.  He finally dropped it Dec. 22, 2014.

Common Core: Making news for all the right reasons

February 20, 2015

The Arizona House Education Committee voted 5-2 approving a proposal that would scrap the state’s imposition of Common Core “standards” and strip the Board of Education’s ability to adopt new ones. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Mark Finchem, (R-LD 11), now moves to the House floor.

Read the amended version of H.B.2190, which was approved after testimony from those on both sides of this contentious issue. A video of the hearing can be viewed here.

Seeing Red AZ has frequently covered the various incarnations of the Common Core back story and deceptive name change —- once it became too toxic. In the end, it comes down to the GOP establishment, with John McCain yet again playing the manipulator behind the curtain vs. the grassroots conservatives who put the underestimated Diane Douglas in office.

When Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas acted within the purview of her office, she was hammered by a Hamer. The establishment view is summed up by this obnoxious comment by obliging tool Glenn Hamer, president and CEO of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce. “It’s bizarre and outrageous and offensive and she should apologize to all she’s offended,” Hamer is quoted in the New York Times. “Her comments and behavior aren’t necessarily following a linear pattern at this point.”

In other words, for having the temerity to disagree with the elites, Diane Douglas can deliberately be deemed nuts by the diminutive, insult-hurling Hamer.

The superintendent’s remarks were “intense even for Diane Douglas,” blasted Lisa Graham Keegan, who had previously called Superintendent Douglas “erratic.” Name calling has become commonplace among Common Core proponents. John Huppenthal, the troubled man replaced by Douglas referred to opponents as “barbarians.”  Like newly elected Gov. Doug Ducey, Keegan is closely tied to the McCain faction.  A RINO-turned-Independent who supported Douglas’ radical leftwing educrat opponent, Keegan served as McCain’s education policy advisor during his failed presidential campaign.

The conservative base of the Republican Party supported Diane Douglas. As the establishment choice, Doug Ducey had the backing and financial network of the GOP hierarchy.  He was also the beneficiary of scattered votes in a 6-way Republican primary field. A Libertarian and Americans Elect candidate further diluted the pool. 

Ducey needs to reassess his victory and realize he is the governor. He owes John McCain and his political kneecapping cronies nothing more than a courteous greeting when they meet at public functions. They don’t belong in his office and when they call, his secretary can honestly tell them he’s busy.  After all, he’s got a cash-strapped state to run. By virtue of her election, Diane Douglas is already in charge of the Arizona Department of Education.
