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

February 12, 2017

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.

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.


McCain’s latest “bipartisan” effort to hamstring Pres. Trump

February 11, 2017

Still hallucinating that he’s president, John McCain is working feverishly –with a contingent of Democrats and a couple of Republicrats — in an effort to pull the rug out from the man who actually was elected….President Donald Trump

Since hypocritically withdrawing his brief primary endorsement and declaring he would not vote for Trump, the petulant McCain has tried to undermine the president at every turn.

His latest gambit is a bill that would require any decision by the Trump administration to ease sanctions against Russia to be subject to congressional oversight — which amounts to McCain giving McCain the authority that has eluded him.  Where was McCain’s voice when Barack Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry oversaw the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran, sweetening the transaction with an unthinkable $400 million ransom for hostages, and what National Review characterizes asa carefully structured $1.7 billion side payment.”

McCain’s Gang of Eight amnesty efforts fell flat, as did those preceding it. Now he’s trying for a less cumbersome Gang of Six to rein in Pres. Trump. His co-conspirators are Democrat Sens. Claire Catskill (MO), Ben Cardin, (MD), Sherrod Brown (OH) and his reliable RINO kin Sens. Marco Rubio (FL) and Lindsey Graham (SC). Missing from the mix this time is McCain’s doppelganger, Jeff Flake.  He can’t afford the exposure since he’s up for reelection this year and Arizona conservatives are more than disgusted with his self-serving antics.

The Hill reports that Ben Cardin, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee said, “It’s not an attack against President Trump. This is basically to reestablish our role.”

Believe that and we’ve got a bridge to sell you.

At a health care summit in 2010, a showboating McCain lobbed challenges at then-President Obama — who began his response by reminding McCain of the passage of time.Let me just make this point, John, because we’re not campaigning anymore, the election’s over.” (4:27)

Obviously,  we’re anything but Obama fans. Still,  this would be good advice for McCain to follow. Donald Trump is the President of the United States. Even Hillary Clinton accepts that fact. It’s time for John McCain to join her.


AZ newspaper’s new heroine: The Illegal alien

February 10, 2017

The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) story had all of the elements that make for a tear-jerker. A mother who worked at a “fun park” deported. Crying teenage children — American citizens born to illegal Mexican national Guadalupe García de Rayos, 35.  An illegal alien husband, who did not want to be identified hovered about, but asserted, “Basically, we are Americans.” They both knew the key words to utter is that they were brought here before age 16. According to the report, she is merely in the country “without authorization.

The sympathetic Page One coverage included an above-the-fold half page head shot photo of Guadalupe, emerging from darkness with crosshatched wire “bars” dramatically superimposed across her face. The editorial team must have worked overtime to come up with this theatric.

The statement issued by ICE, acknowledges “Garcia has a prior felony conviction in Arizona for criminal impersonation, and was the subject of a court-issued removal order that became final in July 2013”  When she was arrested by Maricopa County Sheriff’s Deputies in 2008, she was using stolen documents including a social security number belonging to a Tucson man. She was finally deported this week.

Of course, rapidly mobilized and obviously unemployed protesters arrived on the scene like bees to honey. Illegals are their nectar.

Count on the reliable liberals to call her deportation a “tragedy and bigoted”  Democrat U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego (AZ CD 7) was quoted as saying, “Donald Trump is cruelly ripping a mother and a breadwinner away from her American citizen children. Instead of focusing on improving our economy or keeping Americans safe from real danger, the Trump administration’s policies are persecuting law-abiding members of the immigrant community.”

Not quite.  She’s a convicted felon. She and her children are reunited in Mexico.

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton referred to the detention and deportation of Garcia de Rayos as “a travesty.” He said it shows that Trump’s deportation policies make the country less safe.

Only if you’re here in violation of the law.

“Rather than tracking down violent criminals and drug dealers, ICE is spending its energy deporting a woman with two American children who has lived here for more than two decades and poses a threat to nobody,” Stanton said. Stanton, an announced candidate for Secretary of State, the frequent backdoor route to the governor’s office, is being pushed by extremists to officially designate Phoenix as a “sanctuary city.”

Mexico’s Leftist presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador who previously lost twice to President Enrique Pena Nieto, is now leading in voter polls for next year’s election. He plans to visit Los Angeles on Sunday to talk with illegals about President Donald Trump’s “poisonous” rhetoric. According to Lopez Obrador, Trump has shown a “lack of respect for Mexico.” He added, “This campaign — because it is very poisonous — of xenophobia, of causing hate, must be confronted,” he said. “We Mexicans are being persecuted.”

Persecuted? Not by a long shot. And not if you stay home and stop illegally invading our country, Señor Lopez Obrador.


Jeff Sessions confirmed as USAG: Why lone Dem voted aye

February 9, 2017

The U. S. Senate on Wednesday confirmed President Trump’s U.S. Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions. His stellar legal career will be an asset to the Trump administration and the American people.

The vote was 52 – 47. (view here) with a single Democrat — West Virginia’s Joe Manchin —  deviating from the party line. The Senate’s two Independents voted with the Democrats. Sessions voted “present.”

West Virginia gave Donald Trump a landslide victory of 68.65% to Hillary Clinton’s meager showing of 26.46%.

Democrat Manchin is a longtime politician, having been elected to the state House and Senate, as Secretary of State and Governor, before being elected U. S. Senator in Nov. 2010.  He’s learned a few things along the way.  First and foremost is his coal producing state was thrown under the bus by his party’s presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as she promised toput a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” (video)

Watch as a laid off coal miner confronts Hillary (video) and she lies to his face about her actual agenda. 

In 2008, presidential candidate Obama previously vowed to bankrupt the coal industry (video) as he spoke with the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Manchin will be running for reelection in 2018. That fact is reflected in his vote.

No wonder the leading coal producing state of West Virginia has had its fill of Democrats and Sen. Joe Manchin treads carefully. Miners who toil underground,  risking their lives to provide energy, their friends and family vote.


Bill Clinton rates standing ovation for sounding like Pres. Trump

February 8, 2017

Democrats only decide remarks are “racist” when uttered by Republican

 On January 24, 1995 when President Bill Clinton gave his State of the Union address to a joint session of the 104th United States Congress he received a standing ovation.

Democrats listening to Clinton’s rousing speech found these words inspiring:

“All Americans, not only in the states most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. That’s why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens. In the budget I will present to you, we will try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to better identify illegal aliens in the workplace as recommended by the commission headed by former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan. We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it.”

Fast forward 22 years and the same issues addressed by President Donald Trump are labeled racist and reeking of self-serving protectionism.

But U.S. Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (GA) agree with Trump. Declaring “It’s time our immigration system started working for American workers,” on Tuesday the duo unveiled the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act, legislation that will help raise American workers’ wages by restoring legal immigration levels to their historical norms and rebalancing the system toward employment-based visas and immediate-family household members. The RAISE Act would lower overall immigration to 637,960 in its first year and to 539,958 by its tenth year-a 50 percent reduction from the 1,051,031 immigrants who arrived in 2015.

According to Sen. Cotton, “The RAISE Act would promote higher wages on which all working Americans can build a future-whether your family came over here on the Mayflower or you just took the oath of citizenship.”

“We are taking action to fix some of the shortcomings in our legal immigration system,” said Sen. Perdue. “Returning to our historically normal levels of legal immigration will help improve the quality of American jobs and wages.”

Soros funded losing candidates to defeat Trump and failed

February 7, 2017

Soros fund execs gifted donations to failed presidential candidates John McCain, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Lindsey Graham along with Mitt Romney’s VP candidate and now Speaker of the House Paul Ryan,  hoping to trounce Trump in 2016

Seeing Red AZ has been sounding the alarm about the John McCain / George Soros connection for years.  In Jan. 2014, we posted John McCain cavorts with pal George $oros, exposing the deep ties McCain has cultivated with the extremist, America-hating, open-borders globalist. Soros, a multi-billionaire has bankrolled the duplicitous Arizona senator since 2001.

Nov. 2015 we posted McCain joins Soros pushing “refugee” invasion, filled with excellent outside links that further expose the man who at that time was seeking a sixth, six-year senate term at age 80. We wrote, “the depth of McCain’s deception is mind-boggling.”

When we posted By George! McCain & Hillary have a lot in common, Feb. 1, 2016, in the fourth paragraph we included a link to Richard Poe, a New York Times-best selling author and award-winning journalist, who presented the definitive statement and follow-up question: “John McCain Gets Soros Cash. Why would McCain be the willing recipient of money from Soros — who funded Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns?”

Interestingly, the link is kaput and a message says, “The page you are looking for no longer exists.” The site links to Poe’s books, one of which, The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party, he co-authored in 2007 with conservative David Horowitz.

Today we direct our readers to Matthew Boyle’s first-rate investigative report “George Soros the Godfather of the Left,” posted on Breitbart, further exposing the collusion. Boyle writes:

In total, executives with the Soros-founded company pushed $36,800 into the coffers of these GOP candidates just this past cycle. That does not include Super PACs or campaign committees, which saw tens of thousands of dollars more. While these numbers for Republicans pale in comparison to the millions upon millions poured into Democratic groups, causes, and candidates, it is significant that Soros executives are making a play inside the GOP. Perhaps even more significant is the type of Republican they aim to prop up: pro-amnesty, pro-open borders on trade, and generally speaking anti-Trump. A pattern emerges when looking at the policies of the Republicans that these Soros Fund Management executives support financially.

The biggest recipient of Soros-connected cash in the GOP was none other than House Speaker Paul Ryan, who repeatedly attempted to undermine Trump over the course of the election. According to the records available online, the Soros firm’s workers gave $10,800 to Ryan.

POLITICO reported Soros has worked under cover to remake the U.S. Justice system in his liberal image, funding left-wing prosecutor and law enforcement candidates. Here in Maricopa County he spent $2 million to topple Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Commit these traitorous names to memory: John McCain, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Lindsey Graham. They are all anti-Trump Republicrats willing to turn on Donald Trump, the Republican party’s presidential nominee and now our 45th president for the proverbial thirty pieces of silver.

McCain’s spokeswoman, Julie Tarallo, along with those representing the other politicos contacted, has not responded to multiple requests for comment from Breitbart News. What a surprise.
