UPDATE: Tammy Bruce has provided a link to “…one of the authors of Arizona’s SB 1070, who has written an op-ed piece rebutting each of the criticisms of the bill. Please do read it for more ammunition in answering whatever mindless, hysterical liberals you encounter.”

Kobach: Why Arizona Drew a Line

(Excerpt) “ON Friday, Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona signed a law — SB 1070 — that prohibits the harboring of illegal aliens and makes it a state crime for an alien to commit certain federal immigration crimes. It also requires police officers who, in the course of a traffic stop or other law-enforcement action, come to a “reasonable suspicion” that a person is an illegal alien verify the person’s immigration status with the federal government.”

***************************************************************************

The recent law in Arizona granting police the right to demand identification is Arizona flexing its legal muscle to protect its borders during a time of land invasion, i.e., by Mexican citizens. Why would such action be different from any one of us attempting to cross into Mexico, with no thought respecting the sovereignty of that nation and its borders?  Mexican drug cartel and violence by those here illegally will continue to escalate  because our boundaries are weak or not enforced. Ignoring the consequences of such bullying will continue to leave American dead, and mountains of trash and dead animals rotting in its wake.Entering Arizona on I-10 Westbound

The new law has drawn the ire of liberal immigration protesters, who demonstrate loudly, threatening to boycott Arizona.  Go for it lefties.  Make a lot of noise, like a Halloween monster out scaring little kids.  LSM talk shows and screen shots draw attention to vocal, screaming opposition, injecting fear of more violence into the message, making it seem like more people are against than for it.  When are they going to show the rancher who was shot, or the countless lives lost on our highways from illegals who can’t be prosecuted without a legal identity in this country?  The LSM spin leaves out the obvious: the law effectively establishes the sovereign right of the state of Arizona to set boundaries, protecting it from further violation.

Hmmm…let’s see — do you drive without a license? Can you apply for most jobs without proof of citizenship (the purpose of e-Verify)? What about a background check for a loan, or a job?  These are on the spot demands to show proof of identification.  Ante up or no job, loan, college application, driver’s license, USPS postal box, forwarding address request, marriage license, school entrance, candidacy (oops — another issue?), security clearance, ad infinitum.  Federal and state government and businesses already demand such proof.  Arizona should not have to justify to the liberal left their sovereign right to enact laws protecting not only borders but residents during a time of invasion.  The liberal left does not own this country, the People, through what used to be our representation do.  It would seem that the Lame Stream Media still thinks they know what’s best for us, as they pat us on the head, spin us around, and shove us out their back door.  They are not living at the border.

The governor of  Arizona took measures to reduce not only escalating violence, but human trafficking across her state borders.  Meanwhile her state’s residents quietly attempt to clean up the mess in the desert.  More power to them.

“They are business executives. Political movers and shakers. Sports icons. Media moguls. They’re the most prominent women who are redefining womanhood in 21st-century America…From Sarah Pali to Oprah Winfrey to Kathy Ireland to Suzy Welch to Ivanka Trump, these women share several traits: They’re smart, independent, successful, and they’re shaping feminism today — even if it means being a mom and raising kids!” — Newsmax article,  “Sarah Palin and the Leaders of the Newer Feminism”

In case the writers of that article missed it, the real women leaders of America today, with the exception of Sarah Palin are not in the list Newsmax has hyped.  The real feminist leaders “redefining womanhood in 21st-century America” are the women busy organizing and supporting the efforts of the tea parties to keep safe our country.  These are the women who have not forgotten what happened to Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential election, where in the real world the forgotten man turned out to be a woman.  

America’s mainstream feminists are not going to forget how the LSM treated Hillary Clinton, nor are not going to forget how the LSM savaged Sarah Palin and her children.  And they are not going to forget how the LSM ridiculed Carrie Prejean, pounding her with its anti-mainstay family agenda, while many women today struggle to hold their families together in an economic climate made up of hopeful strawpaper.  NopeWe will not forget what the media did to political hopefuls who happened to be women, and the ruin of our economy by socialist Democrats out to run this nation into the ground.

So here’s an invitation to the sewer rats of the LSM that work for Soros, the Girls of Alaska, and the DNC drones who have littered the Internet with miles and miles of nasty remarks about Palin:  meet the millions of women of the tea parties who are organizing to get out the vote, and who will be rallying round our flag and our country during the elections of 2010.  Because when momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.

And last I checked, women have been business executives, political movers, sports and media leaders — since forever!  Nope, the “feminism shaping” today is not about burning our underwear, walking around topless, or buying into NOW’s latest out-of-touch vision of what we are supposed to be at all.  It’s about realizing that women have been quietly contributing without fanfare to the needs of their families, their country and their jobs every day.  And if we need some feminist organization or media hype artist defining our heroines, or our new place in today’s society, we’ll let you know. 

God Bless America!

Bruce’s Rule

Apparently, the media rules for reporting on the Palin’s (throw out the wild supposition first, stick to tepid fact checking, ignore the obvious) fell to Fox News this morning.  (We think these same rules are equally applied by CNN, ABC, MSNBC, and CBS on their under-reporting on the illegal activities of ACORN, manufactured global warming data, bribery and undue influence for votes by the Obama administration, etc., etc., etc., but I digress.)

And so in exasperated response to this morning’s story from Fox News that had some of her staunchest supporters ready to tear a hole in the Palinsphere, the honorable Tammy Bruce has proclaimed “Bruce’s Rule.”  The only caveat we need these days in response to ‘huh?’, for Palin stories: 1) wait, and 2) wait a little more.  That way the real reporters, that is, the citizen media, including bloggers like Conservatives 4 Palin, Tammy Bruce, Hillbuzz, Team Sarah, and all the other blogger/journalists out doing the real work will have time to verify the facts.

“Look, there has not been one ridiculous story/rumor/gossip about Palin and her family, starting with the 2008 campaign, that hasn’t been found false. So here’s the New Rule–if you hear something that sounds stupid, or ridiculous or makes it sound like Sarah Palin has somehow lost her mind, that’s your cue that it’s a false story, engineered to make it sound like, uh, Palin has lost her mind.” – Tammy Bruce

Well there.
