Arizona is America's new Alamo

5/28: ""Arizona we feel is America's Alamo in the fight against illegal and dangerous entry into the United States," she said.
  • "Our border guards and all of Arizona law enforcement are undermanned, undergunned, taxed to the limit,
  • front-line defenders trying to hold back the invasion," Louden continued.

"We are calling on all America, from the president to every consumer to defend our Alamo in the best way that they have to do so," she said, which in this case means

  • supporting Arizona financially."...

Petition drives halted v Arizona law

"5/10, Phoenix: "The two proposed referendum drives challenging Arizona's new sweeping law targeting illegal immigration are being abandoned, organizers said Monday.
  • Andrew Chavez, a professional petition circulator involved in one of the efforts, said its backers pulled the plug after concluding they might not be able to time their petition filings in such a way as to put the law on hold pending a 2012 public vote.
Jon Garrido, the chief organizer of the other drive, attributed its end to a belief The law takes effect July 29 unless blocked by court action being sought under several pending legal challenges filed by civil-rights groups and others....
  • Chavez said his clients, whom he would not identify, launched the effort in the belief that they could put the law on hold until 2012 by not filing petition signatures until it was too late for state elections officials to place a referendum on the November ballot.
However, the backers decided over the weekend to end the referendum campaign when they concluded there still might be a November vote, not giving them enough time to be confident about being able to wage a successful campaign against the law, Chavez said....

Swat teams for American grannies, not for illegals

An estimated 5.5 million illegals are in the country on expired visas. They know the US government does not care, and would rather send out a swat team against a tax paying white haired lady holding a tea party sign.

Big Media guns blaze against American people 12-1 on law to fight terror and organized crime in Arizona

  • Guns blazing, media yet again takes aim at the mere existence of the American people. The media is therefore America's number one enemy.
"Well, surprise, surprise. The Media Research Center released a study yesterday that says by a
  • margin of twelve to one,
Anyone who follows this site or others like it won’t find this figure shocking, but it does illustrate how a law in one individual state (remember that Federalism thing?) that’s quite popular with the American people can create such controversy. Guess it doesn’t really matter what the people think
So here’s how it works: the media takes a popular law that doesn’t fit perfectly with their PC mindset, they lie about it, rinse and repeat, get The Man himself to weigh in, and presto! The law
  • suddenly becomes “controversial.”

Now, there is a debate to be had on this law, and there is some inherent controversy in it to be sure, but the media hysteria certainly makes for a teachable moment in just how biased the media can be when they put their minds to it.

From the article:

"When political scientists compare populism and elitism, they could certainly find a test case in the new Arizona law on immigration enforcement. While Rasmussen found 70 percent of Arizonans favored the crackdown on illegal aliens, and new national media polls found majority support as well,

From April 23 to May 3, the top three television networks offered viewers 50 stories and interview segments on their morning and evening news programs. The tone was strongly hostile to the law and promotional to the “growing storm” of left-wing protesters: 37 stories (or 74 percent) were negative, 10 were neutral, and only three were positive toward the Arizona law’s passage

  • 12 negative stories for every one that leaned positive.

Cops were potential abusers of power. Entering the country illegally was not an abuse of power. It was portrayed as an honorable step by the powerless.

The soundbite count was also slanted, with 92 quotes against the law and only 52 in favor. The pro-law numbers, however, included many soundbites of Arizona public officials defending themselves against liberal charges that they were racists or in favor of racial profiling.

If someone forces crime, poverty, suicide and homicide on you, it's a good sign they hate you

"Even more alarming, the jobs that many of these men, or those like them, once had in construction, factories and offices aren't coming back.A good guess...is that when the economy recovers five years from now, one in six men who are 25 to 54 will not be working,' Lawrence Summers, the president's economic adviser, said the other day....
  • It is clearly not in the economic interest of the United States or best interest of the American worker to increase immigrant labor at the low end of the employment spectrum when the market is already exhibiting an excess of supply over demand. Economic logic tells us that wages will fall,

  • poverty and idleness will rise, and as a result, welfare expenditures, family disintegration, and
  • crime will increase.
Since the President and his economic advisors know this, why would they champion a policy that will make so many American workers worse off? Can it be something as devious as the belief that an expanded underclass will vote Democrat, even if the Democrats put them in their impoverished state?

Governor Brewer cancels Napolitano Aussie street camera program

  • My first thought was cameras had to be a good idea. Granted, Napolitano set the deal up with a foreign company. The US can't even come up with its own system?
  • This article says one of the enforcers was murdered in a drive-by shooting. Compassion, a manipulation of language with suicide and homicide its logical outcome. ed.
"Arizona is ending a groundbreaking and contentious program that put speed cameras along Phoenix-area freeways and in vans deployed across the state.
  • Opponents have argued the cameras open the door for wider "Big Brother" surveillance and are more about making money than safety. The program has been the target of an initiative measure proposed for the November ballot.

Even Gov. Jan Brewer has said she doesn't like the cameras, and her intention to end the program was first disclosed in her January budget proposal. That was followed by a non-renewal letter sent by the Arizona Department of Public Safety this week to the private company that runs the program.

Scottsdale-based Redflex said Thursday that the 36 fixed cameras will be turned off and the 40 vans taken off highways on July 16, the day after its state contract expires.

The non-renewal letter was first reported by The Arizona Republic.

  • The camera program was instituted by Brewer's predecessor, Janet Napolitano, now the Homeland Security secretary. Cameras were introduced in September 2008 and were added until all 76 were up and running by January 2009.

Lawmakers considered repeal proposals within months, but set the issue aside and appealed for calmer debate when a passing motorist fatally shot a camera-van operator doing paperwork in his marked vehicle in April 2009.

  • The mobile and fixed cameras snap the photos of speeders going 11 mph or over the speed limit...

Napolitano estimated that the program would bring in $90 million revenue in its first year,

While hundreds of jurisdictions across the country use speed cameras and some states have limited programs using cameras in certain areas, Arizona's statewide deployment remained the widest state use of the technology.

  • The state's decision is a setback for supporters of speed-enforcement cameras, said Jonathan Adkins, a spokesman for the Washington-based Governors Highway Safety Association.

"We need to look and see what happened in Arizona why didn't it work," he said.

  • Shawn Dow, a leader of the initiative campaign, welcomed the decision to end the program but said the drive's organizers still plan to file petition signatures on the July 1 deadline to qualify it for the November ballot.

The end of the state program does not affect local governments' use of cameras for speed enforcement, but

  • the proposed ballot measure would prohibit state and local governments from using cameras for both speed violations and red-light running. " (AN EXAMPLE OF SUICIDE AND HOMICIDE UNDER THE GUISE OF SOMETHING SWEET. ed)

(CONTINUING) ap: "Redflex, a unit of Australia-based Redflex Holdings Ltd., said in a disclosure to the Australian Securities Exchange that it could write off $5 million of assets because of the program's end. Under the state's contract, Redflex supplies cameras, vans and other equipment.

  • Department of Public Safety officials declined to comment on the contract or to immediately release the letter. Redflex quoted the letter as saying the non-renewal reflected "a change in the agency's focus."

The end of the program will be a disappointment, Redflex spokeswoman Shoba Vaitheeswaran said. She said it comes as the program continued to mature, with improvements being made in court processing procedures and other areas....

  • Joanna Peters, a Phoenix traffic-safety activist, called the Brewer administration's decision irresponsible.

"They're ignoring a silent majority of folks who actually support the program," Peters said. "This is something we could fix, not just throw out the baby.""
