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? 


AZ GOP’s Robert Graham’s spiteful retribution

July 22, 2015

In a clear case of intra-party punishment aimed at Maricopa County Republican Chairman Tyler Bowyer for having the audacity to buck AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham and his McCain-led establishment allies, comes this inexcusable retaliation. Bowyer hosted and appeared onstage at the July 11, 2015 Phoenix event featuring presidential candidate Donald Trump. That kind of independence doesn’t play well with those who want to dominate the party and, like John McCain, consider the conservative base “crazies.”

Kudos to Frosty Taylor, editor of Maricopa County Republican Briefs for the following report:

Arizona Republican Party Chairman Robert Graham has stopped payment on the rental check for the Republicans of Maricopa County office that opened July 13 in Tempe.

MCRC Chairman Tyler Bowyer confirms reports that the MCRC received notification of the ‘stop payment’ from the bank last week. AZGOP never notified Bowyer, nor the MCRC Treasurer of the ‘stop payment.’  MCRC Treasurer David Ludwig messaged the AZGOP upon receiving notification from the bank, however, the AZGOP has not responded.

“We are still in shock that Robert (Graham) would commit to funding the office through 2016 and suddenly pull the funding,” said Bowyer.

When Briefs contacted Graham Monday afternoon (July 20), regarding reports of the ‘stopped payment’, Graham responded, “It appears that Maricopa County is doing well.  I thought it was appropriate and wise to hold back funds and allocate the resources based on need.  With 14 other counties we have some large battles potentially in CD 1 and CD 2 not to mention our goal to bring the state house and senate to a greater majority.  We are working to help all the counties in the state with the Redroots program.  It has been my pleasure to help Maricopa get off the ground and into an office and look forward to working with them on Redroots.”

Graham denies reports circulating among GOP leaders that the AZGOP is punishing Bowyer and the MCRC for hosting the Presidential Candidate Donald Trump event a week ago that drew thousands of Republicans in attendance. 

Graham also denied reports that the AZGOP is short on funds. Graham said, “Tyler has not publicly thanked the AZ GOP or its donors for paying the rent.” However, long time party members, who were around several decades ago when Jack London gave the current AZGOP headquarters to the Republican Party, recall that the Maricopa County Republican Party Committee was to have access to quarters within that facility.

“Since the AZGOP removed the MCGOP out a number of years ago out of the 24th street shared space, it has been up to the AZGOP to compensate for that. Robert seemed to agree, but the sudden move is very strange and unexpected on our end. We have made a serious effort to adopt a teamwork philosophy and this is very disappointing to see. We will continue to work hard on behalf of Precinct Committeemen and find resources to fund the Tempe office,” Bowyer said this evening.

Monday evening Briefs sent these additional questions to Graham:

  1. Why did you issue the Tempe rental check and then stop payment on it? Did you notify the county you were stopping payment?  If so, when? And to whom?
  2. Why would the county proceed with the ribbon cutting on the new facility last week if they knew AZGOP wasn’t going to pay the rent?
  3. Did you also stop payment on the county office in Sun City? 
  4. How many county offices (throughout the state) is the AZGOP paying the rent on?  Have they also been cut off?
  5. Were you directed to stop that Tempe facility check because Maricopa County hosted Trump? trump-shunned-arizona-gop-establishment-phoenix-visit 
  6. Why didn’t the AZGOP host Trump?
  7. Will the AZGOP be hosting any of the Republican presidential candidates when/if they come to AZ?
  8. Or is this something the county needs to be prepared to handle in the future?

Graham responded that he was on his way back East for a series of meeting and didn’t have time to answer the questions.


Aborted organs harvested, sold: PP exec wants Lamborghini

July 22, 2015

Last week we posted “Planned Parenthood’s gruesome realities,” which included a video exposing Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services and Obama administration advisor. She was seen enjoying her lunch and sipping wine while callously discussing the harvesting and sale of second trimester aborted baby body parts. Nucatola brazenly admits to using partial-birth abortions to get “intact parts” which increases the amount per human baby organ —- coolly describing the barbaric process she engages in to procure specific organs for buyers. 

Then just when you thought you’d seen it all, it gets worse. The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has now released a second video. This one shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council President, Dr. Mary Gatter, also casually sipping her beverage, flippantly haggling over payments for “intact fetal specimens” and offering to use a “less crunchy technique” to ensure intact body parts — brains, hearts, lungs and livers  — which are more marketable.

By the conclusion of the meeting, Gatter, a Harvard-educated medical doctor, suggests $100 per “specimen” is not enough and concludes, “Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark, then it’s fine, if it’s still low, then we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini.”

Gatter appears to be aware this violates laws governing tissue collection, but disregards them: “To me, that’s kind of a specious little argument,” she says.

Federal law requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection. (42 U.S. Code § 289g-2)

In 2014, Mary Gatter was honored with a “Women Mean Business” award by Democrat California State Sen. Carol Liu at a swank luncheon at the Pasadena Hilton. The honorees were chosen for having exceptional abilities that have contributed to the economic vitality, diversity, and — ironically — “the quality of life” of the 25th state Senate District.

Emperor Obama’s unilateral gun grab

July 21, 2015

Do you have difficulty balancing a checkbook? Obama wants your guns

In yet another massive intrusion on the rights of American citizens, Barack Obama is intent on unilaterally restricting the Second Amendment freedoms of certain gun owners who claim the Social Security benefits they paid for during their working years.

Currently about 4.2 million adults receiving monthly benefits have “representative payees” handle their banking and bill paying for them. Turning those duties over to a trusted family member or friend should not entail the loss of Constitutional rights.

Not only would this amount to the largest gun grab in American history, but according to this Fox News report, the governmental infringement would take place without any due process protections for recipients, amounting to a nullification of Second Amendment rights for millions of Americans who don’t pose a threat to themselves or anyone else.

The Social Security Administration (SSA), which has never taken part in the background check system, provides advice and a phone number for turning in people who raise “concerns.” The government site even provides a “webinar” to educate “payees who serve multiple beneficiaries.” 

The Veterans Administration has already implemented a similar program to designate veterans as “prohibited persons” when they have a fiduciary assigned to administer their VA benefits. Already, 177,000 vets have been swept into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System  through the overreach of bureaucratic tentacles.

Like the Social Security program, the VA procedures are also devoid of significant due process protections or any requirement that the beneficiary be found a danger to self or others

The National Rifle Association correctly assesses, “The implications of this policy are too far-reaching to fathom at present. Social Security is one of the more prolific and relied upon Federal programs in American history. That Obama’s directive could so easily be implemented within the SSA suggests that bureaucrats could effectively cloak such a program in any agency within the growing leviathan that is the federal government.”

Call your members of congress and demand that Obama’s unprecedented and unilateral attempt to implement the largest gun grab in American history be stopped. 


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.


Obama’s new America

July 19, 2015

Administration amasses unprecedented racial data to aid in altering America

In an account of social engineering that could easily be considered Orwellian, the New York Post reports on the Obama administration’s obsessive data-collecting practices separating Americans by race, with the intent to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.

Author Paul Sperry reveals, “Obama is presiding over the largest consolidation of personal data in U.S. history,” adding, “he is creating a diversity police state where government race cops and civil-rights lawyers will micromanage demographic outcomes in virtually every aspect of society. Punishment will be meted out to entities that don’t comply with reforms.

Barack Obama’s ultimate plan for destabilizing America along racial and ethnic lines is even more insidious.

We have already witnessed the flood of illegal, impoverished and uneducated Hispanics from Mexico and Central America Obama has relocated across the nation. He is also committed to ensuring chaos reigns in the United States and whites, Christians and Republicans become permanent minorities, as he opens the floodgates to more unassimilating fanatical Muslims who openly express hatred of our freedoms and way of life, and engage in murderous rampages. Army psychiatrist Maj.  Malik Hasan, the Tsarnaev brothers, and days ago, Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez who all massacred Americans in the name of Allah, are just a few examples. There are myriad others, including the September 11, 2001 terrorists who methodically planned and carried out the unimaginable slaughter of 3,000 people on American soil.

Pay attention. As evidenced in recent polling of U.S. Muslims, nearly a third of Muslim males under 45 believe that violence against America is justified in order to make Sharia the law of the land.

Truth Revolt carries the well-documented report that includes the shocking survey conducted by Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy. Ignore it at your own peril.

America’s first black president, twice-elected by Americans of all races, is doing more to divide us along ethnic lines and subvert Constitutional freedoms than any of us could possibly have envisioned in 2008.  As his second term is concluding, Barack Obama is fast-tracking his new American vision. It doesn’t include most of us.


Be vigilant: Communists still waging war on America

July 18, 2015

Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter

If you thought Communists had faded from the American landscape, think again. They are alive and well and hoisting the flag of cultural Marxism high in America — in tandem with advancing a well-oiled propaganda machine.

Author Paul Kengor, PhD* has written an insightful commentary, “Communists Celebrate Lowering of Confederate Flag,” for American Thinker. He provides historical background on state’s rights, a notion loathed by the overarching, central government-worshipping Communists, and delves into the redefinition of marriage as celebrated by the same Godless Marxists.

Referring to the Communist red flag, Kengor writes, “…communist publications like People’s World hoist the rainbow flag and denounce the Confederate flag. They do so in the name of “tolerance” while, in truth, the flag they really salute is the worst symbol of intolerance.”

“The workers of this country and the workers of every country have only one flag and that is the red flag,” said William Z. Foster, chairman of Communist Party USA, to Congress in the 1930s. CPUSA members were loyal Soviet patriots. One of them was Frank Marshall Davis, mentor to Barack Obama, who, in his July 20, 1946 Party-Line Chicago Star, wrote: “I salute the Soviet Union…. I honor the Red nation.”

Kengor’s full column is a worthy read.

*Among other books, Paul Kengor authored, “The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, the Untold Story.”
