Arizona Takes a Stand for American Sovereignty

Praise God for what is happening with the people and government in the state of Arizona.  As more and more citizens and states come to the realization that an overbearing federal government is not going to protect them and provide for them, they will stand on their own two feet and restore this country to its constitutional foundation.

Ariz. governor signs immigration enforcement bill

PHOENIX — Gov. Jan Brewer ignored criticism from President Barack Obama on Friday and signed into law a bill supporters said would take handcuffs off police in dealing with illegal immigration in Arizona, the nation’s busiest gateway for human and drug smuggling from Mexico.

With hundreds of protesters outside the state Capitol shouting that the bill would lead to civil rights abuses, Brewer said critics were “overreacting” and that she wouldn’t tolerate racial profiling.

“We in Arizona have been more than patient waiting for Washington to act,” Brewer said after signing the law. “But decades of inaction and misguided policy have created a dangerous and unacceptable situation.”

Earlier Friday, Obama called the Arizona bill “misguided” and instructed the Justice Department to examine it to see if it’s legal. He also said the federal government must enact immigration reform at the national level – or leave the door open to “irresponsibility by others.”  (Of course Obama thinks this is misguided.  It stands in the way of his progressive Marxist agenda, part of which is to flood this country with illegal aliens whom the democrats/progressives can turn into loyal voters.  The only “irresponsibility” being displayed here is on the part of the federal government, Obama, and his administration who REFUSE to protect this country.  The only other “irresponsibility” on display here is that of the idiots who elected such treasonous scum.)

“That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona, which threaten to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe,” Obama said.  (Obama, you are an undocumented, lying sack of manure.  Undermine fairness?  Trust between police and communities?  Who is keeping us safe RIGHT NOW?  There is nothing fair about allowing those who have no right to be in America to enter and then to plunder the wealth of American citizens.  There is no trust between police and communities when the “law enforcement” does nothing to protect us. (DISCLAIMER: There are many law enforcement men and women who want nothing more than to protect American citizens, but they are being impeded by the federal government.)  There is NOTHING keeping us safe in our own homes and communities right now except us.  This law is the first step toward the American people retaking responsibility for our own destiny.)

The legislation, sent to the Republican governor by the GOP-led Legislature, makes it a crime under state law to be in the country illegally. It also requires local police officers to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are illegal immigrants; allows lawsuits against government agencies that hinder enforcement of immigration laws; and makes it illegal to hire illegal immigrants for day labor or knowingly transport them.

The law sends “a clear message that Arizona is unfriendly to undocumented aliens,” said Peter Spiro, a Temple University law professor and author of the book “Beyond Citizenship: American Identity After Globalization.”

Brewer signed the bill in a state auditorium about a mile from the Capitol complex where some 2,000 demonstrators booed county Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox when she announced that “the governor did not listen to our prayers.”  (She thankfully ignored your prayers for the destruction of America.)

“It’s going to change our lives,” said Emilio Almodovar, a 13-year-old American citizen from Phoenix. “We can’t walk to school any more. We can’t be in the streets anymore without the pigs thinking we’re illegal immigrants.”  (If you think people upholding the law of this land and protecting her citizens are “pigs,” then perhaps you don’t belong here anyway.  If you are indeed an America citizen, you would understand that unfortunately there are millions of people who happen to look like you who are breaking the law.  If you want the best for AMERICA, then you would stop when asked, politely provide the identification asked for, then go on about your business.  When the ILLEGAL immigration problem is under control, these inconveniences will go away.)

The Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund said it plans a legal challenge to the law, arguing it “launches Arizona into a spiral of pervasive fear, community distrust, increased crime and costly litigation, with nationwide repercussions.”  (No, what it does is begin to stem the tide of illegals who are draining this nation of her wealth and resources.)

Mexico has warned the proposal could affect cross-border relations. On Thursday, Mexico’s Senate unanimously passed a resolution urging Brewer to veto the law.  (If Mexico is blackmailing us by saying they won’t be our friends anymore if we don’t let them keep sending all their wretched refuse over here to both relieve the corrupt Mexican government of the responsibility of taking care of its own citizens, and to have most of those illegal invaders send most of the wealth they plunder back to Mexico, the Muck Fexico!  Our purpose on this earth is not to provide a welfare state for Mexico.)

“Police in Arizona already treat migrants worse than animals,” said Francisco Loureiro, an activist who runs a migrant shelter in the border town of Nogales, Mexico. “There is already a hunt for migrants, and now it will be open season under the cover of a law.”  (Typical liberal drivel and mudslinging.  Police are prevented from mistreating illegal immigrants unless they are specifically posing a danger to the officers.  Catching law breakers and deporting them is NOT treating them like animals.)

The bill will take effect in late July or early August, and Brewer ordered the state’s law enforcement licensing agency to develop a training course on how to implement it without violating civil rights.

“We must enforce the law evenly, and without regard to skin color, accent, or social status,” she said. “We must prove the alarmists and the cynics wrong.”

Brewer, who faces a tough election battle and growing anger in the state over illegal immigrants, said the law “protects every Arizona citizen.”

Anti-immigrant anger has swelled in the past month, after rancher Rob Krentz was found dead on his land north of Douglas, near the Mexico border. Authorities believe he was fatally shot by an illegal immigrant possibly connected to a drug smuggling cartel.

Arizona has an estimated 460,000 illegal immigrants, and its harsh, remote desert serves as the corridor for the majority of illegal immigrants and drugs moving north into the U.S. from Mexico.

U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, a Democrat, said he closed his Arizona offices at noon Friday after his staff in Yuma and Tucson were flooded with calls this week, some from people threatening violent acts and shouting racial slurs. He called on businesses and groups looking for convention and meeting locations to boycott Arizona.  (As always, the ones REALLY threatening the violence and being anarchists are the LIBERALS.  Not ONE of the claims of violence, slurs, or threats made by liberals has proven to be real.  They are just using the Alinsky tactics of trying to smear and discredit those who oppose them.  Notice that liberals have pretty much given up on trying to win on the merits of their arguments.  When asked “Where does the constitution give you the right to mandate that citizens purchase government health care?” liberals respond with “You’re a racist.”  When asked to explain how legalizing 30 million illegal aliens can possibly be beneficial to America, liberals/progressives/democrats respond with “You just hate Mexicans.”  When disagreeing with Obama’s policies because they raise our taxes and take away our freedom and liberty, liberals say “you hate him because he’s black.”  THE LIBERALS/PROGRESSIVES/DEMOCRATS CAN’T WIN ON THE WEIGHT OF THEIR ARGUMENTS.)

The bill’s Republican sponsor, state Rep. Russell Pearce of Mesa, said Obama and other critics of the bill were “against law enforcement, our citizens and the rule of law.”

Pearce said the legislation would remove “political handcuffs” from police and help drive illegal immigrants from the state.

“Illegal is illegal,” said Pearce, a driving force on the issue in Arizona. “We’ll have less crime. We’ll have lower taxes. We’ll have safer neighborhoods. We’ll have shorter lines in the emergency rooms. We’ll have smaller classrooms.”

  1. Arizona can pass race base laws, pass Birthers laws and the state can continue to boycott Martin Luther King Day, well the rest of the Country can boycott the state of Arizona and spank them where it hurts them the most their pocket book. Their phony patriotism is sickening, they are just racists going by another name. We all know you are just itching to put a sheet on their head? Let’s face it the Republicans had eight years to deal with health care, immigration, climate change and financial oversight and governance and they failed. It appears that the Republican Party is only good at starting wars (two in eight years, with fat War profiteering contracts to friends of Cheney/Bush) but not at winning wars as seen by the continuing line of body bags that keep coming home. The Republicans party will continue turned inward to their old fashion obstructionist party (and their Confederacy appreciation roots) because they continue to allow a small portions (but very loud portion) of their party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” to rule their party. I will admit that this fringe is very good at playing “Follow the Leader” by listening to their dullard leaders, Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush, Savage, Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and the rest of the Blowhards and acting as ill programmed robots (they have already acted against doctors that perform abortions). The Birthers and the Tea party crowd think they can scare, intimidate and force others to go along with them by comments like “This time we came unarmed”, let me tell you something not all ex-military join the fringe militia crazies who don’t pay taxes and run around with face paint in the parks playing commando, the majority are mature and understand that the world is more complicated and grey than the black and white that these simpleton make it out to be and that my friend is the point. The world is complicated and people like Hamilton, Lincoln, and Roosevelt believed that we should use government a little to increase social mobility, now it’s about dancing around the claim of government is the problem. The sainted Reagan passed the biggest tax increase in American history and as a result federal employment increased, but facts are lost when mired in mysticism and superstition. For a party that gave us Abraham Lincoln, it is tragic that the ranks are filled with too many empty suits and the crazy Birthers who have not learned that the way our courts work is that you get a competent lawyer, verifiable facts and present them to a judge, if the facts are real and not half baked internet lies, then, and only then, do you proceed to trial. The Birthers seem to be having a problem with their so called “facts”. Let’s face it no one will take the Birthers seriously until they win a case, but until then, you will continue to appear dumb, crazy or racist, or maybe all three. I heard that Orly Taitz now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC), she wants to re-establish a family values party, that’s like saying that the Catholic Church cares about the welling being of children in their care, too late for that.

  2. Wow! Angry, uninformed, talking-points liberalism at its finest. Your comments in italic block quote.

    ”Arizona can pass race base laws, pass Birthers laws and the state can continue to boycott Martin Luther King Day, well the rest of the Country can boycott the state of Arizona and spank them where it hurts them the most their pocket book.”

    You show your ignorance or unwillingness to acknowledge the true threat that inspired this law. The law has nothing to do with race, although the perpetrators can mostly be identified by race. Are all Latinos illegal aliens? No, but most illegal aliens are Latinos. Does that mean you stop ALL Latinos and check for papers? No. Just like the law says, you only stop people if you have a reasonable suspicion that they may not be here legally. You consummate-victim liberals will whine no matter who gets stopped. National security just doesn’t matter to you. Until we get our border under control, we have to figure out which people don’t belong here. Until then, we will just have to ask them, won’t we?

    ”Their phony patriotism is sickening, they are just racists going by another name. ”

    Whose patriotism is phony here? Who is actually trying to protect American citizens? Who is actually trying to obey the immigration laws that have been on the books for years, but are being prevented from doing so? Here’s a hint: it’s not the government, and it especially isn’t the left wing of our government. Both Republicans and democrats in Washington have failed at controlling our borders, but it is failure just the same. Washington’s failure results in the deaths of American citizens, a drain on our education system, a drain on our health care system, a drain on our wealth in general as illegals are allowed to partake in something to which they have no right and have not earned. The government has failed to protect us, so we must protect ourselves. If you live in a neighborhood infested with violent gangs and drug dealers (black, white, Latino, doesn’t matter), and they have already stolen your car, killed your pets, murdered your wife, and are now beating down your door, are you going to protect yourself or sit and wait for the police force that has done nothing about it for a decade to show up and save you? Am I a racist for DEFENDING myself? If you honestly answered “sit and wait,” then you are the perfect victim that liberal/democrat/progressives love because they can control you.

    ”We all know you are just itching to put a sheet on their head? ”

    Now who’s the racist? This is the calling card of a liberal if I’ve ever seen one. You can’t win on the issues, so you start calling names, defaming, besmirching, and smearing just to distract potential listeners from the real issues. I may be way off base here, but from the tone of your writing I get the sense that you are a black male between the age of 25 and 35. Is there anything wrong with that? Absolutely not. But based on voting records, demographic studies, and so on, if you fall into that group you are more likely to cast yourself as a victim. If you are one of the VERY rare people today to have an idiot in a white sheet show up at your house, I wish I had been there to help you get rid of him. But odds are you have just bought into the lie fed to you by liberals and democrats for the last century. Please look at the issues with cold, disengaged objectivity and see if a different truth emerges for you.

    ”Let’s face it the Republicans had eight years to deal with health care, immigration, climate change and financial oversight and governance and they failed. ”

    Health care started to get “broken” in World War II when a LIBERAL president instituted price and wage controls. If an employer wanted to hire quality employees, he had no way to compete by offering a higher wage due to the controls, so they began to offer “perks” such as “free” health care, or “insurance.” This is where the genie was allowed to escape from the bottle (or hospital). Until this point, a doctor visit was something most could easily afford from their own pockets. A procedure that couldn’t be paid for in one payment was negotiated directly with the doctor and a payment plan worked out if needed. But with the advent of “insurance,” people began to get the idea that health care was free. Let me assure you just in case you are foolish enough to think otherwise, there is NO SUCH THING AS “FREE.” Even the salvation offered by Christ Jesus isn’t free. HE paid the price for it. As insurance became more the norm, and people go used to someone else paying their way, medical and insurance costs were driven up by people who abused the system because they weren’t having to pay the bill. Now it’s so ingrained that the dependent class in America will go berserk if the “free” stuff goes away.

    Both parties have totally failed at controlling our borders, but for different reasons which are two sides of the same coin. That “coin” is VOTES. The liberals want the minority vote, so they seek to let in and legalize as many illegal immigrants as possible so they can woo them with “free” stuff. The faction of the republicans party that failed wanted votes of farmers and businesses that benefitted from cheap labor. Both approaches hurt Americans. The “free” stuff approach just places an ever increasing burden on the resources intended for our own citizens, leading to rationing and shortages (money, education, health care, emergency services, etc.) The cheap labor approach lowered the wages and standard of living of American workers in any industry that hired illegal aliens. They would work more cheaply than Americans could because they weren’t paying taxes, and anything above living in a mud hut was an increase in their standard of living. Either way, illegal immigration hurts America.

    Climate change is a hoax. The climate changes with or without man, and has done so for millions of years. So far EVERY bit of research used to support the claims of manmade global warming has either been proven to be a hoax and fraud, or at the very least placed in the doubtful category. Global warming is where the communists went. Different name, same scheme. We all want a CLEAN environment, but to ruin our economy, destroy our way of life, and likely bring the world economy down with us, all on unproven science is idiotic at best.

    As to financial oversight and GOVERNANCE, you’re right. GOVERNMENT did indeed fail. Who caused it to fail? Most of the blame falls squarely in the laps of liberals who interfere with the natural business cycle trying to prescribe an outcome simply by wishing it were so. Case in point: Our current housing crash. This disaster has its roots in the Carter administration (a liberal democrat, if memory serves). Mr. Carter I believe was well intentioned, but naïve when he birthed the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977. The goal was to increase home ownership by minorities and lower income people. An admirable goal, but idiotic methodology. The way to make homes more affordable is to make businesses stronger, so they can increase wages and hire more people, who can in turn afford to buy more expensive things (houses, cars, HEALTH INSURANCE) without having to steal from people who earned their own money and pay their own way. This approach creates wealth. But Carter’s approach, which was pumped on steroids by Clinton, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and the like, just strong armed the banks into making loans to people who could never afford to pay them back. The banks knew this to be poor business and resisted, but were coerced by the criminals listed above. Once the moral, ethical, and common sense restraints were removed from the banks, they chose to make as much money from the disaster as possible. Here you have the law of unintended consequences. Bad loans sold abroad as securities, an increasing spiral of foreclosures, and a building bubble that was bound to burst. Back in a time when common sense ruled, you didn’t buy more house than you could afford because you couldn’t get the money to buy it BECAUSE YOU COULDN’T AFFORD THE LOAN. Seems circular, and it is. If you don’t have money, you don’t buy stuff. The very same financial advice proven through CENTURIES of trial that our government refuses to heed. YOU CAN’T SPEND YOUR WAY OUT OF DEBT, OR INTO PROSPERITY. So government did fail, but it was your liberal buddies, not mine.

    ”It appears that the Republican Party is only good at starting wars (two in eight years, with fat War profiteering contracts to friends of Cheney/Bush) but not at winning wars as seen by the continuing line of body bags that keep coming home. ”

    Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Would Osama bin Laden have attacked us had we not shown weakness in Somalia under the CLINTON administration?

    In his 1996 “Declaration of War Against the Americans,” Osama bin Laden cited the U.S. retreat from Somalia in 1993: “You have been disgraced by Allah and you withdrew. The extent of your impotence and weaknesses has become very clear,” he said. “When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature they will like the strong horse.”

    Would Osama bin Laden still be alive and/or a free man if Bill Clinton had taken him when the Sudanese offered him up on a silver platter?

    Would we have gone into Iraq had Saddam Hussein complied with or been forced to comply with sanction after toothless UN sanction imposed on him, most during the Clinton era?

    Conservatives are only good at cleaning up the messes made by liberals/progressives/democrats/communists/etc. Had the democrats STILL been in power when 9/11 happened, they would have likely just surrendered. Even today, the still talk of not hurting the terrorist’s feelings and trying to understand why they are angry. Conservatives KNOW why they are angry because we actually study our history rather than simply trying to rewrite it. Is there profit to be made in war? Yes there is. Wars aren’t won on ideology alone. It requires bullets, bombs, food, medical supplies, airplanes, tanks, guns, etc. all of which has to be manufactured. The government HIRES or contracts businesses to manufacture these things because they can do it more cheaply and efficiently than government can.

    So you want to talk about “fat war profiteering?” How about the fat economy profiteering taking place with Obama, his appointees, and people he is paying favors to at the expense of the American taxpayer and the economy? He is awarding no-bid contracts left and right, the democrats are piling up the pork that does nothing but pay off special interests and buy votes, all hidden under the guise of “stimulus.” The so-called “stimulus” hasn’t stimulated ANYTHING except government, which by definition cannot create wealth. So any profiteering that took place under Bush (which if done illegally is wrong) pales in comparison to the TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS of indebtedness being forced on the American people by Obama to further his ideological agenda. Be careful as you get down from your high horse that you don’t slip on all the greasy pork scraps left lying around by your pals.

    ”The Republicans party will continue turned inward to their old fashion obstructionist party (and their Confederacy appreciation roots) because they continue to allow a small portions (but very loud portion) of their party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” to rule their party. ”

    You are still too stupid to understand that Republicans CAN’T OBSTRUCT ANYTHING. Democrats own both houses, so whatever you can’t get done is your own freaking fault. Once again, you liberals don’t know your history. You even forget what you yourself did YESTERDAY. The very things you liberals are whining about were done IN SPADES by the democrats just one administration ago. And again you go to the name calling because you have no facts to back up your argument. Weak.

    ”I will admit that this fringe is very good at playing “Follow the Leader” by listening to their dullard leaders, Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush, Savage, Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and the rest of the Blowhards and acting as ill programmed robots (they have already acted against doctors that perform abortions). ”

    Perhaps you haven’t noticed because you are so busy believing your own lies what the differences between the conservative and liberal camps are. Police like conservative protests because they are peaceful, and clean. The D.C. cops said the city was cleaner after the Tea Party protest than it was before it started. Liberals are the ones causing mischief, and instigating violence. Did you see the VIDEO FOOTAGE of SEIU demonstrators changing and defacing road signs to misdirect traffic and throwing eggs at conservative tour busses at the Searchlight, NV rally? You probably closed your eyes for that one. How about the VIDEO FOOTAGE of Black Panther thugs standing outside a polling location WITH WEAPONS trying to intimidate conservative voters from voting in November 2008? Slept through that, and Obama’s AG Eric Holder letting them off the hook when they had a sure conviction, did you? The VIDEO FOOTAGE of the SEIU beat down of a BLACK MAN who was selling conservative paraphernalia at a Tea Party rally? Oh, you were sitting in your underwear in your parent’s basement typing drivel on a liberal blog when that one aired, I suppose. Same with the VIDEO FOOTAGE of liberal protestors shouting down conservative speakers at universities and other public functions, threatening them, throwing things at them, running them from the stage. The same for liberal protestors who riot at G20 summits. Etc., etc., etc. Talk about robots blindly following…

    What about the alleged incident of racial slurs being yelled at democrats as they walked to the Hill to vote on health care reform? Did you see that video? Neither did ANYONE ELSE, because it doesn’t exist. There may be one or two idiots who claim to be conservative who do things that REAL conservatives completely disavow, such as the abortion clinic bombings you so ignorantly refer to. A REAL Christian, and/or REAL conservative would never do such a thing, nor condone it.

    At this point I grow weary of pointing out the folly in your liberal diatribe. Defeating the things you call arguments is about as difficult as clubbing baby seals. You have nothing more than liberal talking points, which can be found on the DNC web site for anyone to read, with which to do battle. Sir, I refuse to engage in a battle wits and logic with an unarmed person.

    Come back when you have actually taken the time to educate yourself and can engage in a thoughtful, fact based debate.
