President Obama came to speak to Intel employees in Chandler, Arizona at the Ocotillo complex on January 25th.
What most of the media didn’t show or report was what the President saw out his window en route.
First it was the amnesty demands of pro illegal groups:
Further down the road, a couple hundred, mostly upset Arizonans chanting “You are fired!”:
Probably not the ‘welcoming committee’ Obama wished for.
Watch as a mother of two small children takes a stand for the sanctity of life in the rose garden at the Arizona State Capitol on opening day. As a mob of pro-abortion activists chant her down, she is joined by other pro-life women and supporters who also stand courageous against the pro-abortion zealots. As you will see from their signs, several of these same pro-life women actually underwent abortions and have now come to regret their decisions. The lesson to be learned here is that pro-abortion activists chant themselves into a trance of blind support but pro-life women through the sacred bond of mother and child, have found the truth and compassion through their real life decisions.

Arizona continues to be a shining star in the midst of liberal darkness that shrouds our country. As we hear reports of inequality regarding the treatment of the Tea Party vs. the treatment of the Occupy protesters in Richmond and other locations, I wish to give thanks the leaders of our great State for their support and fair treatment of our groups over the last two and a half years.
Not once have we received resistance to our events, been unduly denied permits or access to public areas, nor harassed in any manner. On the contrary, the City of Phoenix has provided police protection for our members and has provided freedom of expression of our first and second amendment rights. We have always felt free to express our message, even when it is alongside the violent opposition.
Indeed, Arizona has been a beacon for those wishing to lift their voices in protest, not only for the Conservative voice, but also for the law-breaking entitlement groups who hate our State and our country. When a group of illegal immigration proponents threw a large American flag on the State Capitol grounds, placed a toilet seat on it and instructed their children to stomp their dirty shoes over it in defiance of our laws, the Arizona Capitol police protected their 1st amendment rights as well.
Yes, here in Arizona you can wave your Mexican flag on the porch of the Capitol and declare that it is truly Mexico, not the United States, and get away with it. As abhorrent as that seems, it is the nature of Arizona to uphold the law and the rights of her people, even when it hurts. We applaud our great State, and offer her example to those officials in other parts of our great country who have forgotten what it means to respect the protection of the Constitution.
Kelly Townsend is Co-Founder of the Greater Phoenix Tea Party.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 26, 2011

Tucson, Arizona – “I’m calling on the City of Tucson to enforce the law. Just like every other group, Occupy Tucson has a right to protest so long as their activity falls under what the law allows for. Sadly, these protesters are openly violating the law by staying overnight in Armory park, not obtaining a permit to have an event, and violating the rules by not obtaining the required insurance necessary for the activities. Since there are multiple violations, I am now calling on the City of Tucson to order them into compliance and not give special privileges to Occupy Tucson. The City would not allow this for other protests or groups, so why should Occupy Tucson receive special favors?
And now it’s being reported this same group will camp out in foreclosed homes to prevent them from being cited or removed from the parks. If protesters seek to change park regulations, there is a process they can follow. In the meantime, the City cannot allow them to openly violate the law and only enforce the regulations when they feel like it.”

Some light hearted frivolity from the (union) folks lurking in the background of the Pearce recall effort.
Speaker’s Suggestion that Protesters Start Urinating on GOP Lawmakers Draws Applause, Laughter at Fighting Bob Fest
MacIver News Service | September 18, 2011
[Madison, Wisc…] Thousands of liberal political activists, gathered here Saturday for an annual conference, cheered and laughed as a speaker recounted the recent assault of a GOP lawmaker.
The crowd attending the Fighting Bob Fest also rejoiced at the suggestion that protesters, instead of dumping beer over the heads of Republicans, should urinate on them.
“This is Wisconsin, this is the place where you had some guy pour a beer on the head of a Republican State Senator?” said Fest speaker Greg Palast as the crowd erupted with cheers. “No, no, no, that’s all wrong. You can’t do that. That’s just wrong. I’m from New York. If you’re going to pour beer on a Republican, you have to drink it first.”
In audio of Palast’s speech posted online, the crowd can then be heard breaking out in loud and sustained cheers and laughter.
Madison Police on Friday cited Miles Kristan, commonly referred to as ‘Pink Dress Guy’ with disorderly conduct for an incident that occurred Wednesday evening. According to police reports, Kristan dumped a beer over State Representative Robin Vos (R-Rochester) and two of his colleagues GOP Reps Scott Suder (Abbotsford) and John Nygren (Marinette) at the Inn on the Park hotel bar and restaurant.
The incident has brought to a head concerns by conservatives in Madison that law enforcement there have not taken threats to public safety seriously. Many on the Left, however, have openly mocked the incident as humorous and minimal, although most of this has come in the form of facebook and twitter postings and none in such a public fashion as Palast, an author and freelance journalist, brazenly did on Saturday.
Hear the clip, which was posted on the liberal Democurmudgeon
Fighting Bob Fest is an annual gathering featuring progressive speakers, networking opportunities, and folk-style entertainment, according to organizers. Named after Robert “Fighting Bob” La Follette, the event attracts thousands and had previously been held at the Sauk County fairgrounds but was moved to the Dane County Coliseum this year.
The line up of speakers included Democratic Congresswoman and US Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin of Madison, Mike McCabe of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, John Nichols of the Capital Times and The Nation Magazine, former Congressman David Obey, US Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Matt Rothchild of the Progressive magazine. According to press accounts attendees included Vos’ colleague State Representative Mark Pocan.
Ironically, earlier this year Pocan joined Vos in a call for more civility in Madison.
Pocan has not issued a statement regarding the assault on Vos, nor Palast’s comments that protesters should instead urinate on their political foes. As of press time neither has any of the speakers mentioned above.
The inciting comments and crowd reaction come one day after State Representative Steve Nass (R-Whitewater) said he believed Madison law enforcement leaders are partially to blame for the escalation of disorderly and dangerous conduct by protesters in the Capitol city.
Nass believes that Madison Police Chief Noble Wray, Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney, Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs and Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne have been more interested in cooperating with protesters than enforcing the law.
“The problem is not with rank-and-file police officers. They have had enough, as well. Frankly, the problem rests squarely with the top law enforcement leaders that have let their partisan views interfere with the conduct of their offices,” Nass said.
Indeed, the beer incident of Wednesday night was not a spontaneous occurrence.
The MacIver News Service discovered a video, posted online, of Kristan and another protester harassing Representatives Vos and Suder just last week. In the video, which is apparently shot by Kristan and can be seen here, the representatives leave the Capitol and head over to check into the Inn on the Park. This video corroborates allegations that these two individuals have repeatedly harassed Vos, Suder and others.
“I am somebody and you will listen to me,” the agitator screams at one point in the six-and-a-half-minute video. Earlier, he warns that he was giving Vos “five business days to respond.”
The beer was dumped on Vos and the others five days after the video was posted.
Many conservatives share Nass’ concern that Madison authorities, while not mocking the incident as publicly as Palast, appear to be supportive of Kristan’s antics. Nass warns this casual attitude toward unrest could reach a boiling point.
In this exclusive video interview with the MacIver News Service, Nass said, “[I]f Madison law enforcement authorities don’t begin to crack down on the repeated and escalating harassment of lawmakers and staff “somebody is seriously going to get hurt…or killed.”
Congratulations to Mike Shaw for having his video work featured on Glenn Beck’s show today. Beck was especially interested in Shaw’s revelation and coverage of former Colorado professor Ward Churchill who appeared in middle of the protest. Churchill, who was fired from the University of Colorado at Boulder because he referred to victims of the 9/11 attacks as “Little Eichmanns” was obviously in on the protests to orchestrate and organize the student protest.
Here is the video from Glenn Beck’s show:
Here is the video that Mike produced:
Fresh from the Secretary of State’s Office, here is the latest moronic attempt by one Leonard Clark:
Mr. Clark obviously does not hold back how he really feels about Representative Seel when he calls him a racist and fascist for his “behavior against our President!”
Clark, who is a K-8 music teacher has given money to Democratic candidates including Paul Newman, Sandra Kennedy and District 6 Democrats, the same district Carl Seel represents.
Successful recall campaigns are very rare and with potential presidential candidates like Donald Trump firing up the electorate over the legitimacy validity of President Obama’s birth certificate, Clark’s recall effort is likely to fail in a heavily registered Republican district like LD-6.
Representative Carl Seel ought to take advantage of Mr. Clark’s futile recall effort and hold a fundraiser every week until the next election. Hell, The Carl ought to invite The Donald back to Arizona where they can explain the importance of following the US Constitution to the spirit and the letter of the law.
This is how the leftist operates. When was the last time you saw conservatives show up at a leftist rally blaring sirens, chanting, and toting “You’re a NAZI!” signs?
From the YouTube account P2012p:
“Uncivil anti-legal immigration activist and militant anarchist harass peaceable coalition of Pro-American, Pro-Arizonian Patriots meeting on Tax Day on the grounds of the Arizona State Capitol. Swastikas, Mexican Flags, Sirens, Mega-phones filled with foul mouth hate ridden shouts from a mob determine to disrupt and incite violence! It is all here!
How much you want to bet that you did not see this on your local news station?”
Maybe it’s time to identify these people and list their names here.
UPDATE – April 17th
Here is a mugshot of the individual arrested during the rally. His name is Timothy Ronald Coomer and is known as a Democratic agitator. Here is his mugshot available for viewing on the Maricopa County Sheriff’s website.
In the State of Oregon, leftist protesters also tried to shout down a Tea Party rally using the same tactics of vulgarity, profanity and anything but civil discourse. The Blaze has made video coverage of that event available.
The Arizona chapter of Americans for Prosperity, along with allied Tea Party groups and policy organizations, is hosting a giant Feet to the Fire Tea Party from 6:00 to 9:00 pm on the evening of April 15, 2011. The event will take place on the House and Senate lawns at the Arizona Capitol, and will feature a meet-and-greet with elected officials on the lawns, beginning at 4:00 pm.
On Tax Day in 2009, we brought a crowd of over 7,000 people to the Arizona Capitol. Our goal was to let fed-up Tea Partiers know that the Arizona Legislature actually does have a core of solid fiscal conservatives. Thanks in large part to local Tea Party groups around the state, the Legislature now has even more conservatives. But we cannot simply trust them to do the right thing. On Tax Day in 2011, we must hold their Feet to the Fire.

In case you missed it, this is the video of Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne being harassed by a group of La Raza supporters.
The video was loaded up to a YouTube account under the name of “WhatABCs” which was created by David A. Morales. Mr. Morales is a Ph.D. candidate in Applied Mathematics at the University of Arizona.
When Mr. Morales is not practicing applied mathematics, he is producing and writing independent films about sex, drugs and crime in addition to filming the harassment of elected officials.
If you don’t believe this could happen in Arizona, take a look at these photos of the last public employees protest that took place at Arizona’s Capitol:
The good news for Arizona conservatives and taxpayers is that many are now connected to the TEA Party network. When these photos were taken, it was January 2009 and the TEA Party Movement was weeks away from starting. It wasn’t until April 15, 2009 that Arizona taxpayers showed up at the Capitol to speak up for their rights. (see Tea Party rally below)
The lesson to be taken from this? If you’re not engaged in a TEA Party, this is an encouragement to get involved.
Don’t let what’s going on in Wisconsin happen here in Arizona!
I have to hand it to Angry Right Wing Housewife. She is by far the boldest conservative community organizer activist in Arizona!
I’m guessing the Left doesn’t like it when conservatives run a play from Saul Alinsky’s playbook!
Here is a video clip from this morning featuring former Congressman, JD Hayworth advocating for the TEA Party position. The clip was called “Viewer Outrage: Can the TEA Party Fix the Economy?” Watch as JD runs circles around his leftist opponent, David Callahan.
Jay Heflin with The Hill is reporting that Congressman and former US Senate candidate, J.D. Hayworth, has been chosen to be a national advocate for the TEA Party. For those who have followed Congressman Hayworth’s career, this is an excellent choice by leadership of the TEA Party movement
In 2009, prior to Rick Santelli’s famous words on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile, Hayworth was instrumental in giving rise to the Arizona TEA Party by lending his voice and by giving voice to leaders here in Arizona. As a broadcaster at KFYI, Hayworth promoted grassroots and TEA Party gatherings across Arizona including the famous 6,000 person march on the Sate Capitol on April 15, 2009.
Now as the TEA Party continues to make progress in States like Alaska, Delaware, Kentucky and Nevada, Hayworth’s understanding of the issues and his political redemption from a Congress that once lost its way will give further credence to this important American political movement.
Over the course of the last few months, Arizona’s U.S. Senate race has really started to heat up on several fronts; the most heated are of course the interactions between the incumbent Senator, John McCain and the front running Republican challenger and Tea Party supported candidate, JD Hayworth. However, a not so publicized debate is going on between the local Arizona Tea Parties and the other Republican challenger and so called “tea party candidate” Jim Deakin.
Ever since February, when JD Hayworth received his first tea party endorsement from the Tea Party supporting political action committee, LibertyFirst PAC, Jim Deakin and his campaign have been working very hard to legitimize their tea party connection. The effort has yielded them very little, if any at all, support from the local Arizona tea parties. At the time of LibertyFirst PAC’s endorsement many of the local tea parties were not endorsing candidates; most weren’t legally able to due to IRS tax restrictions. Since March however, the tea parties have been working very closely with one another and working hand in hand with groups like the Patriot Caucus, Tea Party Patriots and the Arizona Tea Party Network to establish several alliances and coalitions for the sole purpose of endorsements, some specifically for showing support for Hayworth. In fact on August 2nd, a coalition of more than 16 Arizona state-wide, Tea Party and like-minded Conservative groups came together to announce they were all endorsing JD Hayworth to be the next United States Senator from Arizona.
Today those same 16 groups, including many of the local Arizona tea parties are now under attack from Jim Deakin, the so-called “tea party candidate”. Deakin is clearly not receiving the tea parties support and his campaign staff are now challenging the legal legitimacy of the groups via forum posts and Facebook notes like this one where he states, “Freedom loving Arizonans beware and be wary of Fake TEA Party Organizations designed to pray on your patriotism.” Aside from his obvious misuse of the word “pray”, he goes on to say that because the tea parties are endorsing Hayworth that this proves that they are simply GOP front groups, in particular the Patriot Caucus, and that now because they are endorsing Hayworth that they are also endorsing governmental policies on earmarks, cap and trade, amnesty, tax increases and every other thing that is against what the tea party stands for. Oddly enough, Mr. Deakin didn’t feel the same way about these groups a few months ago, which was right before right before they courted and endorsed Hayworth.
What Mr. Deakin and his campaign staff fail to realize is that, some of these groups were started by some of the original tea party organizers from around the nation and the state of Arizona; some of which are not even registered Republicans. The problem with Deakin’s complaints against “fake tea parties” not supporting him and publicly displaying his “sour grapes” attitude to the world is that the liberal media, and the John McCain media machine, will have a field day twisting and turning the truth about the tea parties to their advantage. Mr. Deakin hopes that his public outcries against the tea party movement will damage the various groups reputations; therefore damaging Hayworth’s reputation at the same time since he is their chosen tea party candidate. All the while, Mr. Deakin continues to slap the movement in the face as he condescendingly calls himself “the tea party candidate”, but in reality, he is not known for his tea party support…he is know in Arizona as “the spoiler candidate”.
Make no mistake about it, JD Hayworth is the Arizona tea parties chosen candidate for U.S. Senate. A majority of the local tea parties have went out of their way on numerous occasions to show their unwavering support for Hayworth, and Hayworth has returned the favor by going out of his way to support the tea parties. The relationship between the two is a bond between a politician and the people; just like our founding fathers would have wanted.
Video Description: JD Hayworth giving a very enthusiastic speech at the United Border Coalition Tea Party Rally held on Sunday, August 15th at the Arizona/Mexico border.
