- 21. Gohmert: U.S. Could Become Third World Nation
"They aren't escaping violence. They're coming here for the schools, jobs, medical care. This is taxpayer-paid human trafficking. We don't know the extent of the diseases they are bringing. The feds did not reveal that they knew these illegals have H1N1 (Swine flu), which is life threatening. They are put on planes, yet have no identification. Some are coming from countries where we know there is Islamic terrorism. Unless someone spots a tattoo, the MS-13 gang members are coming in as children. This huge influx is hurting our own minorities who are having trouble finding jobs." Louie Gohmert, U.S. Congressman (Texas)Click here to read more
- 22. Murrieta's Cliven Bundy Moment
Sometimes, we have to depend on Canada to read about what's happening behind the scenes in America. So it is with this story published by Canada Free Press about why the folks in Murrieta, California, stopped three busloads of illegal alien women and children and turned them around. This small community, that grew up fast but fights to remain "small town," could be Gilbert, Arizona.
As you read this, you'll discover that our federal government had been using Escondido and then Murrieta as a dumping location for illegals, in the dead of night, for months. Escondido's residents had fought against this outrage, but we didn't hear about it. So, the feds pushed on up the road, to Murrieta.Click here to read more
- 23. There is No Shortage of High-Tech Workers in the U.S.; All Job Growth since 2000 Went to Immigrants
High immigration is hollowing out the American middle class, in keeping with Obama's promise to "fundamentally transform America."
How often have you heard politicians make the following statement?
"Employers are telling me that they want to bring in engineers and other high-skilled workers from other countries to expand their businesses but are stymied by restrictions in the current visa system."
These politicians assume there is a labor shortage among American citizens. They need to recheck their premise.
Recent reports dispute two myths: Myth 1: There is a shortage of native born high tech (STEM) workers. Thus, we need more H-1B visas. Myth 2: Amnesty and more legal immigration are needed, because the country has a labor shortage, and more immigration increases job opportunities for native-born Americans.
You have heard and read about the need for foreign laborers, both skilled and unskilled. But take a hard look at the opportunities for your own family. Are your children finding a full time job upon graduation from high school? Are they finding a good, full time job upon graduation from college? Can they find a job in their field of study? Are they able to pay off thousands of dollars of student loans? If they are struggling, they aren't alone.

- 24. Obama Ignores a Decorated American Soldier being held in a Mexican Prison
In June, Obama obtained the release of Bowe Bergdahl, a deserter, in exchange for freeing 5 Taliban terrorists. Most recently, his Administration has orchestrated the flooding of our borders by illegal alien women and youth.
Yet, he has not lifted a finger to help a decorated American soldier who has been rotting in a Mexican prison, in need of medical care, since March 2014.
Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi accidentally made a wrong turn and ended up in Mexico. He's been held in a Mexican prison ever since. Three legally purchased guns were in his pickup truck. Tahmooressi, who suffers from PTSD, served two tours in Afghanistan.
You won't find a whisper of concern from Obama or very many Democrats.
United States Republican Representative Matt Salmon (Arizona) visited him in May, to offer his encouragement and support.
And then, in June, both Rep. Salmon and Republican Representative Ed Royce (California) visited Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi at the El Hongo II prison in Tecate, Mexico.
"I found him to be in good spirits, but this visit confirmed my belief that Sgt. Tahmooressi ... needs to come home," Royce, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said in a statement. "While I remain respectful of Mexico's laws, today after I thanked him for his dedicated service, I assured Sgt. Tahmooressi that I will continue working to secure his release so that he can begin needed treatment for his PTSD."
This decorated soldier needs medical treatment and is not being treated humanely by Mexican authorities!
Most recently, concerned American citizens decided to do what they could to draw attention to Sgt. Tahmooressi's case. Rick Sarmiento of 2 Million Bikers to DC — an organization formed to support members of the military — reached out to Tahmooressi’s family when he heard about their story, telling them “you’re our neighbors.” You remember 2 Million Bikers, don't you? Obama denied bikers a permit to ride in Washington DC on 9/11, but did allow Muslims the same privilege. They rolled through anyway.

- 25. Price Index for Meats, Poultry, Fish & Eggs Rockets to All-Time High
As you read this article, remember that every Town and City that taxes groceries gets an automatic raise. Cha-Ching! You get an automatic pay cut. Unless of course, you stop buying as much food.
Obama's enduring legacies? The most lawless president in U.S. history and the most financially devastating to average American households.
Here's a quote from the article:
"In January 1967, when the BLS started tracking this measure, the index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs was 38.1. As of last May, it was 234.572. By this January, it hit 240.006. By April, it hit 249.362. And, in May, it climbed to a record 252.832."

- 26. The Day of Reckoning by Richard Fernandez
I almost never, ever, do this. I'm going to publish another person's work in its entirety. It's too important. You must read it.
First, an update as of June 16, 2014. The militant group ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) is advancing on Baghdad. See Iraq Falling Apart as Militants March Towards Baghdad: U.S. Begins Embassy Evacuation.
The following article was written by Richard Fernandez. It contains photos and videos not published below. SeeThe Day of Reckoning.
The article begins.....
Ernest Hemingway observed that people went broke gradually at first then all of a sudden. Barack Obama’s career, for so long without visible means of support, has now moved onto the “all of sudden stage” of bankruptcy.
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an al-Qaeda affiliated front of Muslims, have followed up their lightning seizure of Mosul by taking Tikrit, the former stronghold of Saddam Hussein.
In Mosul and surrounding areas, more than 150,000 troops fled their posts as the militants advanced, leaving behind thousands of weapons, including tanks and helicopters, that are now in ISIL’s possession, said Jabbar Yawer, a spokesman for ethnic Kurdish armed forces in Erbil.
The speed with which ISIL and its allies have advanced after their seizure on Tuesday of Mosul – a city of two million people – has sent alarm bells ringing not only in Baghdad but in western capitals.
The Tweets tell of a monumental collapse. ”Jesus. “30,000 men – simply turned and ran in the face of the assault by an insurgent force of just 800 fighters … Surreal scenes in #Mosul, #Iraq as US trained troops leave behind their uniforms and flee from #ISIS to #Kurdistan. ”
Michael Yon Tweets: “Mosul: Iraq Crumbling before our eyes”. The Internet is rife with pictures of al-Qaeda triumphantly inspecting millions, perhaps billions of dollars worth of captured, American made military equipment. It’s like Vietnam all over again, except this time the NVA are continuing the attack all the way to New York.
Unless the rot is stopped, ISIS will soon be at Baghdad’s gates and al-Qaeda’s affiliates will soon possess one, perhaps two major Middle Eastern countries plus trillions of dollars in oil resources. Libya, Iraq, perhaps Syria. They will be on the border of Saudi Arabia, able to credibly menace the energy lifeline of the Western world, a fact that can only play to Putin’s advantage.
The dangers of abandoning such a vital region were always obvious. Those who have not read my 2010 post, The Ten Ships, might take the time to do so now. It’s good for a laugh, not because it is so “brilliant” but because it’s so obvious. It explains how Obama’s political petulance made him ignore fundamental military strategy by ignoring the obvious center of Islamic militant gravity the Middle East in favor of redeploying the ground forces to a PR fantasy campaign in Afghanistan.
There’s nothing in place available to stop al-Qaeda. The forces that might have are locked up in the Southwest Asia, sustained at the mercy of Russia and Pakistan. Obama has been faked out; the AQ have gone around him for a layup to the basket. He may lose Iraq and its border with Syria before the year ends. Afghanistan’s fall will follow almost immediately thereafter, behind the last American troops, whose safe exit from the landlocked country is now by no means guaranteed. The Russians lost more than 500 men going out in 1989 — and they only had to cross a land border a short distance away.Click here to read more

Never forget that virtually every Democrat Arizona Legislator supports Planned Parenthood, and Planned Parenthood supports them.
- 28. Propaganda Trumps Teaching - Arizona's Public School System
In case you haven't noticed, there is a war going on in our K-12 public school system. On one side are the Progressives and on the other, Conservatives. Your child is caught in the middle.
The Arizona Progressive Public School System appears to be winning this battle, as they continue to slide into promoting Sex Ed Taught by the Nation's #1 Abortion Provider, Transgender politics, Darwinian groupthink, Climate Change Groupthink, Social Justice, Suckling at the Teat of Government, Hostility to Christianity, Hostility to Capitalism, Hostility to American Exceptionalism, and Americans are Killing the Planet.
And while the local school districts are indoctrinating our kids, and demanding more tax dollars, they are also turning themselves into soup kitchens, Compressed Natural Gas stations, and jobs centers for adults.
In Arizona, most local school officials reject "local control" in preference for top down nationalized educational standards (i.e., Common Core aka Arizona's College & Career Ready Standards).
Their message to conservative parent trouble-makers: We're the Experts. Shut Up. Go away. Give us more money.
(One notable exception is the Gilbert Unified School District. Board President Staci Burk, and board members Julie Smith and Daryl Colvin have been bucking the trend. In the face of continual attacks from the progressives, they have accomplished much. See The Accomplishments of the Gilbert Schools Governing Board.)
So, Public School Officials, here's my question: Why should we feel sorry for you about how a voucher program will "drain money from the public education system"? Do you have so little faith in your "high quality" educational centers that parents won't choose your schools over others?
Recently, hundreds of parents lost a months long battle with the Tempe Union High School District over sex education curriculum. The board, led by Progressive David Schapira, thumbed its nose at these parents and adopted the F.L.A.S.H. program. It will be taught by Planned Parenthood, or by teachers who will be taught by Planned Parenthood. Isn't the mere presence of Planned Parenthood in our schools in violation of Arizona's state law?
Want proof that your local public school teachers also promote Progressivism in Arizona's schools?Click here to read more

- 30. Democrats Want Less Democracy, Fewer "Distracting" Elections
by Andy McKinney
President, Rim Country Republican Club
Memory is at once one of the most important components in maintaining a decent civilization and perhaps the most underutilized. We can understand how this happens. The rush of events, and the constant, 24-7 intensity of the news cycle leaves little room for reflection. We of a certain age complain crabbily about the younger set who cannot vividly remember the mistakes and enormities of the Truman administration. But what can we say about our stewardship of our own memories? What about the enormities of the early Obama administration? Have we forgotten them so quickly?
Remember "Card Check"?
One aspect of the tornado of bad ideas that came in with our President in 2009 was “card check” (seems like a dusty old policy relic now, no?). This rule change would apply to the way union certification elections are held. Under traditional practice, if a group of workers contemplates forming a labor union, an election is held. This is a real election, with ballots and everything. The ballots are just as we would expect, that is, they are secret ballots. The ballots are filled out in private. The ballots are anonymous; this means that the ballots are not numbered or otherwise identifiable as to which voter voted in which way. This is how we understand elections to be properly implicated in our glorious country. This is opposed by other methods, say in Cuba, where the idea of privacy--our sacred secret ballot--is ignored. The secret ballot for us is part and parcel of American Democracy. Obama and his union goon minions wanted to do away with the secret ballot in union elections. Decent people thwarted this anti-democratic, pro-totalitarian impulse. Our union certification elections remain free, secret, and democratic.
