    Democrats in House of Reps. joined J Street in supporting Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions Seventy-four Democrats in the House of Representatives have joined the dovish J Street organization in supporting the Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions to the Palestinian Authority. “In our view, support for a two-state resolution is inseparable from such support for Israel, its special relationship with the United States, and its very survival as a democratic homeland for the Jewish people,” the letter said. Seven Jewish members signed the letter, including Reps. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), John...
  • Summit of the Americas: Obama Rips Romney for Supporting Arizona’s Immigration Law

    CARTAGENA, Colombia — President Obama, on a three-day trip to South America, attacked GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney’s stance on immigration reform today, saying his support for Arizona’s tough immigration law is “very troublesome.” “We now have a Republican nominee who said that the Arizona laws are a model for the country. . . and these are laws that potentially would allow someone to be stopped and picked up and asked where their citizenship papers are based on an assumption,” Obama told Univision during an interview in Cartagena, where the president is attending the Summit of the Americas. The three-day trip...

    Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed into law a bill that bans most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, saying it protects women and the unborn. “This legislation is consistent with my strong track record of supporting common sense measures to protect the health of women and safeguard our most vulnerable population – the unborn,” Gov. Brewer said April 12. “Knowing that abortions become riskier the later they are performed in pregnancy,” she said, “it only makes sense to prohibit these procedures past twenty weeks.” The legislation, H.B. 2036, bars abortion in cases where the unborn child is 20 weeks...

    Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed a pro-life bill into law today to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. House members passed the bill by a 37-22 vote and abortions after that time period would not be allowed except in very rare cases of medical emergency. The bill also requires abortion facilities to allow women to have an ultrasound of their unborn baby at least 24 hours prior to having the abortion. In many cases women change their minds about a planned abortion after seeing the images of their developing child. Americans United for Life president Charmaine Yoest commended Brewer...

    It’s no secret that government unions need reform. Government workers earn nearly twice as much as their private sector counterparts, and taxpayers are paying for it. These inflated salaries and benefits are threatening to bankrupt Arizona cities. On top of that, unions spend millions to influence the outcome of elections, estimated to be $400 million this year alone, and support issues that are at odds with the limited government policies you and I support.  The vast majority of that money comes from dues that are automatically deducted from workers’ paychecks. Right now when a government employee joins a union, a...

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he’s talked to members of his state’s congressional delegation about his Cold Case Posse investigation that suggests there was fraud in the creation of Barack Obama’s birth documentation that was released by the White House in 2011. The investigation also concluded that Obama’s Selective Service registration is the same – a forgery, leading to the obvious question of what happens if Obama legally cannot be president. But he’s seen no results. Now, tens of thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands, of people are going to see whether Congress ignores their concerns, too. It’s because of a new...

    Stand With Arizona ^ | 04-12-2012 | John Hill
    by John HillStand With Arizona The Obama Administration has shown themselves to be a bunch of bullies. Obama's Attorney General thinks nothing of bullying states like Texas and South Carolina - blocking their popular voter ID laws on phony "racism" claims. Obama himself recently even tried to bully the Supreme Court over his healthcare takeover, arrogantly ignoring 209 years of judicial precedent in a naked attempt to intimidate. But they seem to have met their match in Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The Administration, particularly the Justice Department and its Civil Rights Division, has declared total war on a man who is...

    It was reported today that Arizona Senate President Steve Pierce and Speaker of the Arizona House of Representatives agreed today to just say NO to the 3,000 petitions delivered to the Legislature on April 2, 2012. Pierce and Tobin refused to even allow the Resolution to be formally written which meant it would never even reach the Rules Committee(s) for further advancement. The Resolution if passed would have required SOS Ken Bennett to send a pre-written letter to DNC National Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz requiring substantive and documented replies to questions posed to her regarding Barack Obama's natural born citizenship,...

    A short piece of legislation recently passed by the Arizona legislature makes a big statement.HB2434 affirms the sheriffs of Arizona as the supreme constitutional law enforcement officers in their counties and serves notice to the federal government that it must work through them to exercise their limited powers.The bill simply states that:A. Before taking any official law enforcement action in a county in this state, a federal law enforcement officer shall notify the sheriff of the county, unless the notification would impede the federal officer’s duties.B. If a federal law enforcement officer does not notify the sheriff pursuant to subsection...

    President Obama’s well publicized comments from Monday, discussing or even lecturing, the US Supreme Court on judicial activism seems to bode well for the State of Arizona. Obama infers that the court has no standing and no precedence in striking down a law, either in whole or in part, created by a democratically elected legislative body. No matter that the Court has taken this same action over 150 times. Precedent is obviously something that needs to be defined for The President in this case. Obama’s comments, “Ultimately I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be...

    The Justice Department has cut off negotiations with Sheriff Joe Arpaio and officials with the Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff’s Office in its effort to install an independent monitor to rein in the unconstitutional tactics used by officers there. Arpaio, who calls himself “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” defied the Justice Department suggestion that it could sue the county and the sheriff’s office to force the issue. “I am the constitutionally and legitimately elected Sheriff and I absolutely refuse to surrender my responsibility to the federal government,”

    Based on interviews WND conducted with insiders in Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign, Sheriff Joe Arpaio has decided to expand the scope of his law enforcement investigation into President Obama’s eligibility to include evidence and affidavits documenting alleged criminal activity by the Obama campaign in the 2008 Democratic Party primary race. Hollywood film producer Bettina Viviano and Hollywood-based digital photographer Michele Thomas have given Arpaio’s investigators the names of dozens of Hillary Clinton supporters willing to come forward with evidence and affidavits. Among their claims is that the Clintons were the first to charge Obama is not a natural born citizen...

    Last week, the Department of Homeland Security released their statistics on the illegal immigration for 2010. According to DHS, the total illegal population went down less than 1%, from 11.6 million at the beginning of the year to 11.5 million by the end. However, in the state of Arizona, the illegal population declined from 470,000 to 360,000; a decline of 23%. In April of 2010 the Arizona legislature passed SB 1070 to crack down on illegal immigration in the state. While parts of the law were blocked by a federal judge, illegal aliens in Arizona are getting the message that...

    SACRAMENTO – California has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Arizona's tough immigration law, saying it would drive illegal immigrants into other states. The Arizona law, passed two years ago, has been largely blocked by court order because of legal challenges. Among other things, it makes in a crime to be in the country illegally and to seek work. The U.S. Supreme Court has scheduled an April 25 hearing, and a ruling is expected in June. California Attorney General Kamala Harris has joined 10 other states in asking that the Arizona law be overturned. The other states are New...

Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse investigating Obama’s eligibility announced at a March 1 press conference that it believes there is probable cause that the registration is fraudulent. A three-sentence March 22 letter written on behalf of Selective Service Director Lawrence G. Romo, however, dismissed the request. “This Agency has no evidence that President Obama’s 1980 registration is not authentic,” wrote Richard S. Flahavan, associate director of public & intergovernmental affairs Apparently refusing to take seriously Arpaio’s investigation,...

    California has the largest undocumented immigrant population of any state, 2.5 million (6.8 percent), according to a 2011 report from the Pew Hispanic Center. California also has the largest percentage (9.7 percent) of undocumented immigrants in its labor force at 1.85 million. California law expressly guarantees the same protection, rights and remedies, except those prohibited by federal law, to all who have applied for employment or who have been employed. California also allows students who are not legal residents to pay in-state tuition at state colleges and universities.
