    Office of the Governor State of Arizona ^ | June 15, 2011 | Janice K. Brewer
    "I am outraged by findings in a new Congressional report that alleges federal agents were instructed to stand aside and do nothing as up to 2,000 weapons were illegally purchased in Arizona and resold. In many cases, the end result appears to have been the arming of violent drug cartels south of the border. "During Operation Fast and Furious in 2010, according to this report, agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms were ordered to simply track these „straw buyer‟ weapons sales but not intervene. Longtime federal agents have now testified before Congress that allowing these weapons to...

    In a weighty case with far-reaching implications, the Supreme Court on Thursday upheld an Arizona law that requires all businesses to check to make sure new workers are in the country legally — and in the process signaled the states can have a greater say on immigration issues. The 5-3 ruling did not directly address a second Arizona law that granted police broader powers to check immigrants' status and set off nationwide protests by immigrant rights groups last year. But the decision does touch on many of the same issues of federal versus state authority, and seemed to show an...

    The Obama Administration is pulling back on border security. According to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the National Guard isn't scheduled to leave the Arizona-Mexico border at the end of June, however, Guard officials are saying they plan to leave the area within days due lack of orders to stay and carry out duties past June 30. Remember, Governor Jan Brewer requested twice as many National Guard troops be deployed the border and only half her request was granted. The assessment at the National Guard Bureau in Washington: "We are on a glide path to end the mission," spokesman Jon...

    Before devoting his time to defeating the British in the Revolutionary War and being the first president of the United States, George Washington enjoyed brewing his own beer. A handwritten recipe for "small beer" created by Washington in 1757, while serving in the Virginia militia, has been published by the New York Public Library. The recipe, which was found in Washington's "Notebook as a Virginia Colonel", lists the ingredients as bran hops, yeast and molasses –...

    PHOENIX — The sponsor of laws to broaden the right to carry guns in Arizona lashed out Monday at Gov. Jan Brewer for vetoing them. Sen. Ron Gould, R-Lake Havasu City, said he did not believe the governor's claims that the measures were flawed and had to be rejected. He said she was just “looking for cover,” trying to find any excuse at all to veto them. But the governor said Monday there were legitimate reasons for her actions. She said both were badly crafted. Brewer, however, refused to commit to signing a version of the measures that was clearer....

    In a surprise move, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer bowed to pressure from the MSM and other "Progressives" and vetoed a bill passed by overwhelming majorities in the legislature. The bill would have restored commonsense regulation to out of control gun banning by local and state governments. At present, a local government agency can prevent law abiding citizens from carrying a gun into a government facility by posting a sign declaring that carrying a gun there is prohibited. The new law would have required that such signs have actual measures in place to insure that if law abiding citizens are so...

  • White House snubs Brewer on immigration as she snubs Tea Party on eligibility

    This morning Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was whining to Greta Van Susteren that President Obama did not invite her to the immigration talks he is holding at the White House. This occurred on the heals of Brewer’s snub of the Tea Party when she vetoed Arizona’s eligibility bill which many worked so hard to get through the Arizona legislature. The disdain with which Obama is treating the governor is the same disdain the governor is using towards the Tea Party when it comes to the eligibility bill. It is almost as if this is therapy for her. She resents being...

    Fresh off her veto of her state’s “birther” bill, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says that the White House gave her a “snub” by leaving her off the guest list for a meeting about immigration reform. “I wish I would have been invited,” the Republican said Tuesday night on Fox News. “You would have thought one of the governors would have been invited, since we are on the front lines fighting for security there. It was a little bit of a snub, if you will.” More broadly, she said, the meeting illustrated a disconnect between President Barack Obama’s immigration policy goals...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday credited Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) for making "the right decision" with her veto of the so-called "birther bill," which would have required presidential candidates to submit their birth certificates in order to qualify for the ballot. -snip- Legislation like this has been offered in a number of state legislatures across the country, driven by persistent speculation in some quarters that President Obama was not born in Hawaii. No similar law had gotten as far as a governor's desk, however. McCain, Obama's 2008 Republican rival, said in a message posted to Twitter Tuesday afternoon...

    Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) applauded his state's governor, Jan Brewer (R), Monday for vetoing a controversial "birther" bill. The legislation, the first of its kind in the nation, would have required presidential candidates to prove their citizenship to be included on the state's ballot.  McCain, President Obama's GOP opponent in 2008, tweeted: Proud of @GovBrewer for her veto of the "birther bill" - it was the right decision. The bill stemmed from suspicions of some of Obama's opponents that he is not a natural-born citizen of the United States and is thus ineligible to be commander in chief. McCain's...

    Governor Brewer's "I do not support designating one person as a gatekeeper to the ballot for a candidate" doesn't hold water. Under current Arizona law, the Secretary of State is the sole and solitary gatekeeper of the "qualification check" function, for those who seek the office of president of the United States. Arizona Statutes: 16-242. Qualifications for ballot; nomination paper A. A person seeking nomination as a candidate for the office of president of the United States shall sign and cause to be filed with the secretary of state a nomination paper ... C.

  • A Birther's Response to Brewer upon her Veto

    04/19/2011 3:46:52 AM PDT · by DBCJR · 25 replies
    The fact that Brewer didn't clarify her response provides more evidence that there is much more going on, and demonstrates the sad complicity of legislators we trusted to honor the Constitution. If I lived in Arizona I would take a serious look at removing her, and certainly replacing her in the next election. On what grounds? There are two clases of cititzens, natural, and naturalized. The definitions are well understood by all of our senators. Orrin Hatch sponsored an amendment to Article II to allow naturaized citizens to become president. It was known as the Schwarzenegger Bill, for obvious reasons....

    In a disgusting act of political cowardice Jan Brewer, Governor of Arizona, has vetoed the Obama Birth Certificate bill that was processed through her government by senators responding to grass roots citizen’s movements concerned with Obama’s eligibility. FOX News reports- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has vetoed a bill to require President Obama and other presidential candidates to prove their U.S. citizenship before their names can appear on the state’s ballot. The bill vetoed by Brewer on Monday would have made Arizona the first state to pass such a requirement. Hawaii officials have certified Obama was born in that state, but...

    The governor should veto SB 1467, a dangerous bill that would allow concealed handguns to be carried in public rights of way on university and community college campuses. Those who join us in opposing the bill include the presidents of Arizona's universities; the state Board of Regents; the student governments of Arizona's universities; the faculty senates; and - most important - the police agencies charged with protecting students, faculty and visitors on our state's campuses. This reckless change in public policy doesn't belong in the Arizona statutes. Defending our Second Amendment right to bear arms is one thing, and we...
