Latino KKK: Brown Beret Says “This is America–Go back to Europe”   Leave a comment

Hi All!

My goodness, so much has been happening since I last updated my blog that I’m not sure where to start, but I’m going to go ahead and start with this video that I meant to post a few days ago but I was speechless to make comment on it.

Well, I guess the video speaks for itself.  This most likely will not make it into mainstream liberal media, much the way the new black panther video went. 

This is jus the most lunatic, insane thing I have ever seen or heard in my entire life.  These people are REALLY out of touch with reality!


First of Arizona Anti-Illegal Immigration Law S.B. 1070 Hearings Held Today   Leave a comment

Well, it has begun.  The courts are finally going to be hearing the cases against Arizona’s anti-Illegal Immigration laws which mirror the Federal Law on the books. 

Firstly, please note that these trials are happening in Phoenix—a reputed ‘Sanctuary City’—with a judge that sides with Illegal Immigrants.

This does not bode well.  I am trying not to be negative about this and I’m praying for a miracle, but seriously folks . . . the odds are totally against them, even THOUGH THEY ARE IN THE RIGHT!  My prayers are with Arizona though this and it looks like these first frivolous law suits might get thrown out, but still . . .

And the fact that this officer refuses to comply with FEDERAL LAW should also be put under examination.  If he refused to pay his Federal Taxes—which paying them IS A FEDERAL LAW—do you honestly think he would get away with it and be able to use the fact that he refuses to pay his taxes as a reason to sue in court?  THAT is ridiculous!  I can see the point of these illegal immigrant groups that are suing, no matter HOW misguided, but not this guy!  He’s the most misguided of them all!

Sorry, I like to use the term ‘misguided’ in reference to those who are ‘misguided’ and ‘misinformed’ about the law.  LOL!!!  It just seems fitting.

Anyway, you had better believe that next week, when the Department of Justice makes their case, I will be paying attention!  My ears will be perked and my hackles raised to find out what is going to go down and will be until a verdict has been issued.

Attorney: Immigration law puts cop’s job at stake

By JACQUES BILLEAUD, Associated Press Writer Jacques Billeaud, Associated Press Writer – 3 mins ago

PHOENIX – A Phoenix police officer’s attorney says the officer could be fired if he doesn’t enforce the state’s new immigration law, which he has sued to block.

Officer David Salgado and the statewide nonprofit group Chicanos Por La Causa filed one of seven lawsuits to try to overturn the law.

Attorneys for the Arizona governor told U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton Thursday that the lawsuit should be dismissed because Salgado and the group lack legal standing to sue and that there’s no valid claim of immediate harm.

Bolton didn’t rule immediately after hearing approximately 40 minutes of arguments on Gov. Jan Brewer’s dismissal motion.

Instead she began hearing arguments on the challengers’ request for an order blocking implementation of the law beginning July 29.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.

PHOENIX (AP) — A federal judge heard arguments on Thursday morning over whether Arizona’s new immigration law should take effect at the end of the month, marking the first major hearing in one of seven challenges to the strict law.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton also is considering Gov. Jan Brewer’s request to dismiss the challenge filed by Phoenix police Officer David Salgado and the statewide nonprofit group Chicanos Por La Causa.

Bolton began by quickly dismissing Brewer as an individual defendant to the lawsuit, a motion unopposed by Salgado’s lawyer. She then began considering whether to dismiss the case.

Bolton said last week that she may not rule on the officer’s request to block the law before it takes effect July 29.

Hearings on the six other lawsuits, including one filed by the federal government, are set for next week.

The large ceremonial courtroom at the main federal courthouse in Phoenix was packed with more than 100 spectators as the hearing began. More than a dozen lawyers were in place along two L-shaped tables, evenly divided between each side. The jury box was filled with law clerks for judges who work in the building who came to observe.

Protesters and supporters of the law gathered outside the courthouse amid heavy security.

About two dozen supporters of the law, many dressed in red, white and blue, held up signs praising Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a major backer of the crackdown on illegal immigrants, and one said “American Pride.”

About 50 feet away a group opposed to the law held up signs calling for repeal of the law.

The groups competed with each other using bullhorns.

“We demand an injunction. We demand a federal intervention,” opponent Sandra Castro of Phoenix, 22, yelled into a bullhorn.

The law requires police, while enforcing other laws, to question a person’s immigration status if officers have a reasonable suspicion that the person is in the country illegally.

Supporters say the law was needed because the federal government hasn’t adequately confronted illegal immigration in Arizona, the busiest illegal gateway for immigrants into the United States. Opponents say the law would lead to racial profiling and distract from police officers’ traditional roles in combating crimes in their communities.

Since Brewer signed the measure into law April 23, it has inspired rallies in Arizona and elsewhere by advocates on both sides of the immigration debate. Some opponents have advocated a tourism boycott of Arizona.

It also led an unknown number of illegal immigrants to leave Arizona for other American states or their home countries and prompted the Obama administration to file a lawsuit seeking to invalidate the law.

Salgado’s attorneys argue the judge should block the law before it takes effect because it would require an officer to use race as a primary factor in enforcing the law and because the state law is trumped by federal immigration law.

Attorneys for Brewer asked that the officer’s lawsuit be thrown out because Salgado doesn’t allege a real threat of harm from enforcing the new law and instead bases his claim on speculation. They also said the state law prohibits racial profiling and that it isn’t trumped by federal immigration law because it doesn’t attempt to regulate the conditions under which people can enter and leave the country.

The other challenges to the law were filed by the U.S. Department of Justice, civil rights organizations, clergy groups, a researcher from Washington and a Tucson police officer.

Bolton plans to hold similar hearings July 22 in the lawsuits filed by the federal government and civil rights groups.

Republican Senator Says He Backs Birther Lawsuits   Leave a comment

I’m going to have to research on whether or not he really does have a Hawaii birth certificate.  It just seems a bit fishy to me—like of all the states he had to be ‘born in’, it had to be that one.  Right.  Also, the fact that mainstream media didn’t do a very good job of verifying this at all and basically swept it under the rug is also cause for consideration.  Supposedly the birth certificate has been located, but it wasn’t announced on the news or anything for everyone to see.  Apparently THAT information is only for the select few who think birthers are crazy.  Note there are not even any links on the article to any mainstream media exposition of said birth certificate.

Usually when the mainstream liberal media does that, it means that they are hiding something ‘someone’ doesn’t want the public to see.

Okay, I KNOW that sounds conspiracy theory-like, but anyone who spends any time looking at the news can honestly deny that everything every station says sounds the same…exactly the same in some cases—especially in the liberal viewpoints they espouse. It just seems kind of, well, ‘fishy’ (I like that word, I’m going to use it a lot today)!

Vitter actually doesn’t mention the birth certificate matter as a main part of his comments.  It seems like he mentioned it in passing and the media grasped that and viciously dragged it out of context to get some attention.  Even as I write this commentary, I want to touch on the birth certificate issue and what I think of how he feels about it, even though that’s not the point.  However, he does acknowledge the fact that there is still question about it.  Do I think that this is a ploy to get votes?  Of course!  Just because someone is siding with conservatives doesn’t mean that they are not doing so just to get their vote.

But note how he tries to change the subject in the article.  I think he just agreed that it’s an issue, the media and his fellows focused on it to try to make him to be a nut (he IS a Republican in this hostile liberal environment) which I think is wrong but par for the course in mainstream media.

Anyway, here’s the article.

Republican senator says he backs birther lawsuits

By BEN EVANS, Associated Press Writer Ben Evans, Associated Press Writer – Tue Jul 13, 1:58 am ET

WASHINGTON – Republican Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana says he supports conservative organizations challenging President Barack Obama’s citizenship in court.

Vitter, who is running for re-election, made the comments at a town hall-style event in Metairie, La., on Sunday when a constituent asked what he would do about what the questioner said was Obama’s “refusal to produce a valid birth certificate.”

Such claims about Obama’s birth certificate have been discredited. But with the crowd applauding the question, Vitter responded that although he doesn’t personally have legal standing to bring litigation, he supports “conservative legal organizations and others who would bring that to court,” according to a video of the event.

“I think that is the valid and most possibly effective grounds to do it,” Vitter said, although he later cautioned that the matter could distract from policy issues.

“I think if we focus on that issue and let our eye off the ball … I think that’s a big mistake,” he said. “I’m not dismissing any of this. I think first and foremost, we need to fight the Obama agenda at the ballot box starting this fall.”

So-called birthers have challenged Obama’s standing as president by arguing that he was not born in the United States.

Hawaii officials have repeatedly confirmed the president’s citizenship, and his Hawaiian birth certificate has been made public, along with newspaper birth notices published when he was born in 1961.

Last year, a federal judge in Washington threw out a lawsuit on the issue, calling the case a waste of the court’s time and suggesting the plaintiff’s attorney may have to compensate the president’s lawyer.

Vitter said at Sunday’s event that the only direct information he has about the issue is what he’s learned through the news media “filter.” His spokesman did not respond to a question Monday about whether the senator questions Obama’s citizenship.

A spokesman for Rep. Charlie Melancon, a Democrat challenging Vitter, called the birth certificate issue “nonsense.”

“While Louisiana families are suffering from the biggest man-made disaster in history, David Vitter is trying to score political points by perpetuating a completely debunked conspiracy theory,” spokesman Jeff Giertz said.

Obama: Al Qaeda Is Racist–NOT because of 9/11, but Because of Uganda   Leave a comment

HOW is this even POSSIBLE!?  HOW?  Tell me please!  How can our president, the president of OUR country, say NOTHING about al-Qaeda for his entire presidency, and then when they admit to the World Cup bombing in Uganda he comes alive and condemns them as ‘racist’. 


*Double Facepalm*

Okay–no, I don’t think what al-Qaeda did was right, nor am I lessening the fact that it happened.  Not one bit.  But COME ON!  What side is Obama on?  Ours?  I don’t see it!  He didn’t mention us once?  Not once?  Not one of those 4000 civilians on 9/11 or not one of those American soldiers?  Not ONCE?

And from what I’ve heard from mainstream media about that group, I really don’t think they are focused on Africans.  They pretty much sound like they are focused on US and destroying US . . . and that’s not considered racism? 

So Tea Partiers are racist because they don’t like the socialist agenda, but al-Qaeda isn’t, even after 9-11?  It took a bombing in Africa to get a reaction.   

*Triple Facepalm*

And he wonders why his popularity rating has dropped so much?

The news just amazes me every day…

President Obama, White House: Al Qaeda Is Racist

In an interview earlier today with the South African Broadcasting Corporation to air in a few hours, President Obama disparaged al Qaeda and affiliated groups’ willingness to kill Africans in a manner that White House aides say was an argument that the terrorist groups are racist.

Speaking about the Uganda bombings, the president said, “What you’ve seen in some of the statements that have been made by these terrorist organizations is that they do not regard African life as valuable in and of itself.  They see it as a potential place where you can carry out ideological battles that kill innocents without regard to long-term consequences for their short-term tactical gains.”

Earlier today a senior administration official said the Obama administration believes that Al Shabaab carried out the attack.

Explaining the president’s comment, an administration official said Mr. Obama “references the fact that both U.S. intelligence and past al Qaeda actions make clear that al Qaeda — and the groups like al Shabaab that they inspire — do not value African life. The actions of al Qaeda and the groups that it has inspired show a willingness to sacrifice innocent African life to reach their targets.”

This can be seen, the official said, in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, when hundreds of Africans were killed and thousands wounded.

“Additionally, U.S. intelligence has indicated that al Qaeda leadership specifically targets and recruits black Africans to become suicide bombers because they believe that poor economic and social conditions make them more susceptible to recruitment than Arabs,” the official said. “Al Qaeda recruits have said that al Qaeda is racist against black members from West Africa because they are only used in lower level operations.”

“In short,” the official said, “al Qaeda is a racist organization that treats black Africans like cannon fodder and does not value human life.”
The president also said in the interview that “it was so tragic and ironic to see an explosion like this take place when people in Africa were celebrating and watching the World Cup take place in South Africa.  On the one hand, you have a vision of an Africa on the move, an Africa that is unified, an Africa that is modernizing and creating opportunities; and on the other hand, you’ve got a vision of al Qaeda and Al Shabaab that is about destruction and death. 

“And I think it presents a pretty clear contrast in terms of the future that most Africans want for themselves and their children,” Mr. Obama said. “And we need to make sure that we are doing everything we can to support those who want to build, as opposed to want to destroy.”

Racist NAACP Resolution Condemns Tea Party as ‘Racist’   Leave a comment

Well, if THIS don’t beat all!!!!!  The racist NAACP organization condemning the conservative Tea Party as a ‘racist’ organization!

First of all?  WHY is this important?  I fail to see why the NAACP resolution is so important that it deserves front page treatment.  Other than the fact that they are wrong and have no solid evidence of any manner of racism happening at tea party events. 

Calling someone a ‘racist’ in today’s world is pretty much as low as you can go.  The fact that they are throwing around accusations like this is frightening and I’m certain this would not be tolerated frin any other politically involved group.  They don’t even have any proof that the Tea Party is racist and it’s not tolerated!  Accusations of racism on this level–with no PROOF–are tired and old.  How long are they going to ride this horse?  As far as I’m concern, coming out and blasting other groups and accusing them of racism without proof just because they don’t believe in socialism and welfare for all does not  a racist make! 

Anyway, I’m not even sure this group even deserves headlines.  I know a lot of people of color and my best friend, who is white, is getting married to a black man and she has a biracial daughter (who is absolutely beautiful by the way)–and their consensus has been that groups like the NAACP do nothing but prey on people and incite hatred among them.  If this group were to dissolve and disappear from the face of the planet, we are all fairly sure that racism, crime and general hatred would as well.

Just a thought from us ‘racists’. 

Oh and they made an error in the title.  It’s ‘condemns’ NOT ‘condems’.  It looks like misspelled the name of a type of a commonly used prophylactic…(sooo many things I could say to that, but I am not that mean >sigh<)

OH, and by the way–more importantly–this article states the accused ‘acts of racism’ were fact, however of the thousands of mainstream media and private video cameras recording the event, even with a $100,000 reward, NO ONE has yet to come forward with ANY PROOF THAT THIS OCCURRED!!!!  Note the accusers are all Democrats who HATE the Tea Party and it just seems too much like a setup to be real.  I mean COME ON people!  LOL!!!!  It’s worse than a ‘Caught on Tape’ setup . . . and it WAS worse than that because it WASN’T CAUGHT ON TAPE!  LOL!

Hmmm…I wonder what they think of the new black panther party . . .

Ahem >turns sarcasm switch ‘off'<

Here’s the article:

NAACP resolution condems racism in tea party


By HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH, Associated Press Writer Heather Hollingsworth, Associated Press Writer 7 mins ago

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Leaders of the country’s largest civil rights organization accused tea party activists on Tuesday of tolerating bigotry and approved a resolution condemning racism within the political movement.

The resolution was adopted during the annual convention in Kansas City of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, spokesman Chris Fleming said. Local tea party organizers disputed claims of racism and called on the NAACP to withdraw the resolution.

It was not immediately clear how the resolution was amended during the debate, which was mostly closed to the public.

The original called for the NAACP to “educate its membership and the community that this movement is not just about higher taxes and limited government.” It suggested that something could evolve “and become more dangerous for that small percentage of people that really think our country has been taken away from them.”

“We felt the time had come to stand up and say, ‘It’s time for the tea party to be responsible members of this democracy and make sure they don’t tolerate bigots or bigotry among their members,'” NAACP President Ben Jealous said ahead of the debate. “We don’t have a problem with the tea party’s existence. We have an issue with their acceptance and welcoming of white supremacists into their organizations.”

Tea party activist Alex Poulter, who co-founded a Kansas City-area group called Political Chips, disputed the allegations. He said the movement is made up of a “diverse group of folks who are upset with what is going on with this country.”

Poulter said he has seen no evidence of racism within the movement.

“It’s unfounded but people are running with these accusations like they are true,” he said.

A group called the St. Louis Tea Party issued its own resolution Tuesday calling on the NAACP to withdraw the proposal, which won’t become official until the NAACP’s national board of directors approves it during its meeting in October in Baltimore. Jealous also urged people to attend an Oct. 2 rally in Washington to remind Congress and President Barack Obama about the challenges facing minority neighborhoods.

Though not affiliated with either major political party, tea party activists espouse a political philosophy of less government, a free market, lower taxes, individual rights and political activism.

The group has faced occasional claims of racism, most notably in March near the end of the bitter health care debate. U.S. Reps. John Lewis, Andre Carson and Emanuel Cleaver said some demonstrators, many of them tea party activists, yelled a racial epithet as the black congressmen walked from House office buildings to the Capitol.

Cleaver, D-Mo., also said he was spit on.

A white lawmaker said he also heard the epithets, but conservative activists said the lawmakers were lying.

“They are pulling people together and focusing on the negative, and then it’s hard to make anything positive out of that,” said Anita L. Russell, president of the Kansas City, Mo., branch of the NAACP, which introduced the resolution. “And then these groups, these extremist groups, are looking for something, and they are latching on to this. The thing is going to grow and grow out of control.”

Arizona Anti-Illegal Immigration Law S.B. 1070 Earns Half a Million Dollars in Support   Leave a comment

AMAZING!  Polls or no polls, enough people want to see this law stay on the books that they put forth $500,000 towards it!  You know what they say, ‘money talks’.  This should a loud, clear sign of what the people want.  While Obama is forking over untold amounts of money against the Arizona Law SB 1070 FROM THE UNWILLING TAXPAYER POCKET, Arizona just might be able to fight this completely funded by willing donors.  THAT says a LOT, doesn’t it?

Here’s the article:

SB1070 defense fund hits $500,000

by Associated Press (July 8th, 2010 @ 2:44pm)

PHOENIX – Donations to a special fund to help Arizona pay to defend its immigration enforcement law now total roughly $500,000, with more than half of the contributions made as the federal government sued to challenge the law.The U.S. Justice Department filed its suit Tuesday in federal court in Phoenix. A document obtained by The Associated Press from Gov. Jan Brewer’s office showed that 7,008 of the 9,057 contributions submitted to the fund’s website by Thursday morning were made in the days following the government’s filing.

With the federal lawsuit, the law enacted in April and set to take effect July 29 is now the subject of six lawsuits now pending in federal court. Other plaintiffs include civil rights groups, individuals and several Arizona municipalities.

The sweeping Arizona law’s provisions include a requirement that police enforcing another law must investigate the immigration status of people if there is “reasonable suspicion” to believe the people are in the United States illegally.

Brewer and other supporters say the law will prompt illegal immigrants to leave the state and that state action was required by a failure of the federal government to secure the border.

Opponents say the law will promote racial profiling and is unconstitutional because regulating immigration is reserved for the federal government.

Brewer established the Governor’s Border Security and Immigration Legal Defense Fund with a May 26 executive order. Her office said the state had received about $10,000 in unsolicited donations from people in dozens of states by then.

According to information released by Brewer’s office, contributions to the website accounted for about 85 percent of the total donations, while others were received by mail.

Website contributions came from all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, but nearly 2,000 of the website contributions came from within Arizona. Donations ranged from $5 to $2,000, with the vast majority between $10 and $100.

Donors contacted by the AP said they contributed because the federal government should be helping Arizona, not taking the state to court.

“Arizona needs our help,” said Mary Ann Rode, a retired municipal worker who lives in Rialto, Calif. “It’s a disgrace what our government is doing.”

Rohde said she and her husband donated $20.

Howard E. Sanner, of Houston, said Arizona’s approval of its law should help prod the federal government to act on border security to help prevent criminals and terrorists from entering the country illegally.

“It’s just a mess that has to be straightened out,” said Sanner, a retired clothing and linen salesman who supports legal immigration and donated $5 to the fund.

It’s unclear what the state’s legal costs will be in defending the law. It includes a provision authorizing Brewer to direct that effort.

The Phoenix-based law firm Snell & Wilmer has been hired by Brewer to represent the state in the pending challenges. The head of the firm told a federal judge Wednesday that its lawyers were working late into the evening to respond to all the filings in the cases.

Citing the crush of filings in the case, U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton has imposed limits on the size of so-called “friend of the court” briefs filed by groups in support or opposition to the law.

Arizona’s Democratic attorney general, Terry Goddard, had opposed the legislation but said he was willing to do his duty to defend the state law. He has agreed to a request from Brewer to withdraw from the state’s defense after Brewer questioned his sincerity

Gov. Jan Brewer Facebook Response to Obama’s Court Action   Leave a comment

Well, I’m sorry that I don’t have a link for this.  A friend sent it to me from his Facebook page and, since I don’t have Facebook and refuse to sign up for it, I am linkless.

But, regardless, here is the statement Gov. of AZ Jan Brewer made in response to the lawsuit:

Governor Jan Brewer’s statement regarding federal lawsuit against Arizona

Today at 2:56pm

Today I was notified that the federal government has filed a lawsuit against the State of Arizona. It is wrong that our own federal government is suing the people of Arizona for helping to enforce federal immigration law. As a direct result of failed and inconsistent federal enforcement, Arizona is under attack from violent Mexican drug and immigrant smuggling cartels. Now, Arizona is under attack in federal court from President Obama and his Department of Justice. Today’s filing is nothing more than a massive waste of taxpayer funds. These funds could be better used against the violent Mexican cartels than the people of Arizona.

The truth is the Arizona law is both reasonable and constitutional. It mirrors substantially what has been federal law in the United States for many decades. Arizona’s law is designed to complement, not supplant, enforcement of federal immigration laws. Despite the Department of Justice’s claims in paragraph 62 of today’s lawsuit, Arizona is not trying ‘to establish its own immigration policy’ or ‘directly regulate the immigration status of aliens.’ Arizona Revised Statutes § 11-1051(E) states that the federal government, along with local law enforcement officers authorized by the federal government, can only determine an alien’s immigration status. Subsection (L) of that same section goes on to state that the law ‘shall be implemented in a manner consistent with federal laws regulating immigration.

The irony is that President Obama’s Administration has chosen to sue Arizona for helping to enforce federal immigration law and not sue local governments that have adopted a patchwork of ‘sanctuary’ policies that directly violate federal law. These patchwork local ‘sanctuary’ policies instruct the police not to cooperate with federal immigration officials.

The best thing government can do is to create a stable, predictable environment, governed by an easily understood set of rules or laws. We do not need to make this more complicated than it already is. We must first and foremost create a secure border. Enhanced trade, economic opportunity and freedom will surely follow.

I am pleased that President Obama and the Department of Justice did not pursue the baseless claims of illegal racial profiling in the lawsuit. When signing S.B. 1070, I said, ‘My signature today represents my steadfast support for enforcing the law — both against illegal immigration AND against racial profiling.’ Arizona’s law expressly prohibits unconstitutional racial profiling. However, words are not enough. For this reason, I ordered the Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board (AZPOST) to develop training on the new law for Arizona’s police officers. AZPOST has completed the training course and has published it for the all world to see at . AZPOST has done its job professionally and served Arizona well.

I will not stop fighting to protect the citizens of Arizona, and to defend Arizonans in federal court. I have set up a legal defense fund to pay the substantial legal fees that Arizona has been, and will be, forced to incur as a result of all of these lawsuits. Contributions to the Border Security and Immigration Defense Fund can be made at My legal team will not hesitate to assert the rights of the State of Arizona in this matter. Arizona will ultimately prevail against the lawsuits – including this latest assault by the Obama Administration. Our laws will be found to be constitutional – because that is exactly what they are. 

Gov. Jan Brewer…you are my hero!  I support you 110%
