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!

American MajorityNow that Sarah Palin has kicked off the Tea Party for 2010 via her February speech at the Tea Party Convention in Nashville, and the CPAC speeches are done, it’s time to get organized!

In that vein, RedState announced today that it is teaming up with American Majority and Smart Girl Politics for some post-party summits.

“…At a time when Americans are losing their allegiance to political parties for the sake of parties, we’re focusing more and more on ideas and ideals.”, Erick Erickson stated.   This is exactly what Sarah Palin has said time and again:  to pledge our allegiance not to the cult of personalities, but to ideas.  Palin herself has refrained from presenting herself as the leader of the Tea Party.

To move forward we need to focus not only on ideas but we need also be in learning mode.  How long has it been since we have paid attention to our civic duty, voting and jury duty aside?  To paraphrase Erickson, ‘It is not enough to stand on the sideline, it is not enough to protest.  We each of us, must invest our time in learning how to implement freedom and liberty on the ground in our own communities.  As the alarm coming from America’s heartland breeches “red alert”, it is fast becoming our civic duty to respond to the ever-increasing, ever encroaching socialist agenda being driven down our throats from Washington DC. 

We as conservatives, moderates, independents — anyone who takes umbrage with the Washington agenda that is a threat to our freedom — can successfully train and work together to retake our communities and lead them forward with principles of limited government, individual freedom and the free market.  This won’t happen by itself.  As important as the brownie and the scouting and all the other over scheduled places we need to be, at this moment of our lives we need to put time aside for becoming actively involved in the process of reclaiming our communities, our schools and our government.  

American Majority is gearing up with training dates and locations where you may register for an event in your region. These training events are beginning or in the planning stages across America. If you have any questions about the training offered, the organizations behind the events, or other questions please contact the American Majority team.

The ground wave rolling forth across this great land that began as the Tea Parties of 2009 has moved onto the next stage.  It may seem as if the tea parties movement has withered and dispersed but no, we are now going  about the business of learning how to effectively regain our beloved America.  We are now at the place on the tarmac where we team up, collaborate, and work together to win the race.

“The government has now confirmed what has always been clear: no one tried to wiretap or bug Senator Landrieu’s office. Nor did we try to cut or shut down her phone lines. Reports to this effect over the past 48 hours are inaccurate and false.

As an investigative journalist, my goal is to expose corruption and lack of concern for citizens by government and other institutions, as I did last year when our investigations revealed the massive corruption and fraud perpetuated by ACORN. For decades, investigative journalists have used a variety of tactics to try to dig out and reveal the truth.

I learned from a number of sources that many of Senator Landrieu’s constituents were having trouble getting through to her office to tell her that they didn’t want her taking millions of federal dollars in exchange for her vote on the healthcare bill. When asked about this, Senator Landrieu’s explanation was that, “Our lines have been jammed for weeks.” I decided to investigate why a representative of the people would be out of touch with her constituents for “weeks” because her phones were broken. In investigating this matter, we decided to visit Senator Landrieu’s district office – the people’s office – to ask the staff if their phones were working.

On reflection, I could have used a different approach to this investigation, particularly given the sensitivities that people understandably have about security in a federal building. The sole intent of our investigation was to determine whether or not Senator Landrieu was purposely trying to avoid constituents who were calling to register their views to her as their Senator. We video taped the entire visit, the government has those tapes, and I’m eager for them to be released because they refute the false claims being repeated by much of the mainstream media.

It has been amazing to witness the journalistic malpractice committed by many of the organizations covering this story. MSNBC falsely claimed that I violated a non-existent “gag order.” The Associated Press incorrectly reported that I “broke in” to an office which is open to the public. The Washington Post has now had to print corrections in two stories on me. And these are just a few examples of inaccurate and false reporting. The public will judge whether reporters who can’t get their facts straight have the credibility to question my integrity as a journalist.

Diversity Lane: "You’re A Grand Old ..?"

While almost every Tea Party Patriot has their “ayes” set for Scott Brown, their attention focused on the current Senate race in Massachusetts, across America voters of every state are showing similar muscle in forming a strong resistance to the current insanity that passes for legislation these days in Washington.  Not only are the Tea Party activists alive and well, but the rallying points flame hotter than ever as the incumbancy and arrogance of the Socialist Democrats continues to threaten our country’s future.  The themes of the Tea Party movement that erupted into a walking groundswell in 2009 are back with busloads of reinforcements in 2010. 

“Tea Party rally targets incumbents, government spending”

Published 01/14/10

Hundreds of conservative Tea Party activists swooped into Annapolis last night on the first day of the 2010 legislative session, ostensibly to protest Maryland’s economic woes and incumbent politicians’ efforts to solve them.

Photo by Paul W. Gillespie of The Capital Gazette —  Hundreds of people crammed into Lawyers Mall last night to protest on a broad range of conservative issues. Busloads of people came from around the state to join the crowd.

But speakers at the rally that packed Lawyers Mall mentioned the economy just briefly. Many went to the podium to hit on other conservative hot-button issues like gerrymandering, illegal immigration, “government” health care, preserving the 10th Amendment, and cap-and-trade legislation.

Earlier in the week the guyz from the Hill Buzz put the rosettes on the cake in regards to the meaning of all the Tea Parties last year (2009):  that American’s of every political brand and color have resolved to come together into one movement to save our Republic from wholesale looting by the Leftist steamroll agenda.    Chicago Way, meet the Resistance movement. 

Every American who stood in a Tea Party gathering in their state in the rains of April, the searing heat of July, who marched down Pennsylvania Avenue on an overcast day in September, rallied on short notice at the Capital in November, and every other gathering in between, is a de facto member of this Resistance.  Any American who at Christmastime phoned the endless phone calls, read the near 3,000 page congressional bill-manifestos, and faxed the endless faxes to the idiots in Congress is part of the Resistance.   

These same Americans are now busily organizing from the ground up at formal bricks and mortar conferences, and even through informal grocery store conversations, ready to take back this country from the most corrupt set of politicians ever.  Those now in power who look down their noses at us and who are frittering away our economic future into a socialist mess will get to meet the Resistance again in the coming elections of 2010.  

 Note to LSM:  The “tea-bagging” mockery only helps further our resolve:    

“Whether Democrats or the MSM realize it or not, a Resistance Movement is forming in this country. Regular citizens are starting to band together in preparation to do what political leaders and those in government are too stupid to do: resist this current president’s desperate slouch towards socialism and his fey, effete, ludicrously naïve approach to Muslim terrorists.     

Islam wants to destroy the West.     

Islam is not a religion: it is a political, commercial, ideological, and criminal organization disguised as a religion so that it can use Liberals within our own borders as Fifth Column enablers of its attacks upon US interests.     

The Resistance needs a leader, and we hope Governor Palin stands up in 2010 and becomes that woman, so in 2012 she can become our president.” – Hill Buzz
