Frank Schmuck: Fly Your Flag And Show Your Patriotism In The Face of Terrorism

Frank SchmuckISIS now admits responsibility for the massacre in Orlando, Florida. A Radical Islamic Terrorist did this.  He could have used a sword.  He chose to use a gun.  A terrorist used fertilizer in Oklahoma City. Radical Islamic Terrorists used box cutters and airplanes in New York City, Pennsylvania and the Pentagon.  Banning implements is not the answer.

Americans need to be able to defend themselves, not have radicalized terrorists or the mentally unstable hold them hostage.  When governments make gun free zones the criminal does NOT suffer, the law-abiding citizen suffers.

ISIS does not and will not conform to a well-regulated militia. Hard working Americans can and will.

John Stuart Mill spoke this centuries ago. “War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war, is worse. . . . A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”

War is in America – New York City, San Bernardino, and now Orlando. Who’s next? Let’s stand up and defend this great nation and ALL classes of people who live here against radicalism. Don’t let “political correctness” cause the loss of life again.  Speak up. This act of terror awoke an American sleeping giant spirit. Let us not forget freedom isn’t free. When you exercise your right to vote think about those who have experience with defending your freedoms. Without safety, rules don’t matter. This enemy doesn’t play by the same rules we do. Be vigilant. Be strong. Protect one another.

Today is Flag Day. Hang your flag proudly to show your patriotism.

Wendy Rogers Discusses The Race for CD-1 With Flagstaff’s KAFF 93.5

Lt Col (ret.) Wendy Rogers was interviewed on Flagstaff’s KAFF Monday morning discussing her campaign for Congress as well as a handful of issues.

http://chirb.it/NOn7qd

Wendy Rogers KAFFDuring the interview, she explained how she covers Arizona’s First Congressional District which is one third the size of Arizona. Rogers uses her airplane and a collapsible bicycle which she packs in the fuselage of her Cherokee 180 single-engine plane. She covers about 100 homes a day when she’s out in the field.

Col Rogers also discussed the most important issues which she hears first-hand from her encounters with voters. Issues include the Second Amendment, border security, jobs, the economy and most prominently, national security.

When asked about her career, Col Rogers went into detail about her 20 years of service flying C-141’s as one of the first women pilots in the US Air Force. Both she and her husband Hal each served 20 years as career officers.

She also described how US military members are treated by host countries depending on who the Commander in Chief is.

When asked what she would like to accomplish and achieve in the US Congress, her most important priority would be to protect and defend the United States. She swore an oath to the US Constitution during her military service and would like to serve the country again in the US Congress.

Col Rogers also noted that she would like to serve on the House Intelligence Committee, an assignment she says she is aptly qualified for and that decides matters of life and death.

She also would like to serve on the Resources Committee because of Arizona’s abundance of beauty and natural resources.

When asked about her position on raising the minimum wage, she replied, “I am not a believer in the government telling business what to pay its employees.”

Sunday’s horrific terrorist attack in Orlando also came up during the interview. When asked about a “fix” for recurring attacks like this, Rogers quickly responded, “We are at war and until you identify the threat and are willing to address it as it is, which is an infiltrated threat in our country, then we have no ground to prosecute that strategy and defeat the enemy.” She said President Obama has not recognized the threat. She also said it is not an issue of gun control or discrimination against the LGBT community. She identified the real problem as the perpetrator and not the tool (guns).

The conversation concluded as Col Rogers described the beauty and blessings of her daughter’s wedding at Snowbowl over the weekend.

Both Wendy and Hal have two children and three grandchildren. They have a retirement home in Flagstaff and have been married for 38 years.

Col Rogers is the only woman running in a field of seven men.

Primary Election Day is Tuesday, August 30, 2016. You can read more about Wendy Rogers at WendyRogers.org.

 

Fear and Fundraising in AZ01

Elected law enforcement officials are in the precarious position of approaching their job from either a half-empty or a half-full position. As we’ve seen from many a sheriff, fear is a tremendous motivator when it comes to driving an agenda. Some sheriffs might cast their office as the object to be feared. Other sheriffs cast the outside world as the source of all danger.

The latter is what we witnessed in the public arena from Sheriff Paul Babeu on Tuesday.

Babeu Press Conference

In a press conference (which turned into a political speech), Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu claimed he has “additional intelligence” that Mexican hit men or “sicarios” were heading into Arizona to assassinate rival drug cartel members. Those attacks would likely take place over Memorial Day weekend. He cited several incidents south of Pinal County and advised campers and hikers to be fully armed and prepared to protect themselves. The press conference turned political when Babeu blamed the Obama Administration for not protecting our southern border (a point we agree on).

Sicario

Members of the media immediately picked up on the sheriff’s advisory and ran with stories of impending threats and attacks to American citizens in the Arizona desert. Several media outlets didn’t quite take the bait (KTAR, KPNX)

What was barely mentioned was that hours after the warning, congressional candidate Paul Babeu sent out a fundraising letter mentioning his press conference and advisory. The timing couldn’t be more obvious: Fear is a tremendous motivator for fundraising.

Babeu even appeared on Your World with Neil Cavuto talking up the threat and danger of Mexican assassins running rampant through the Arizona desert.

[pullquote align=”right” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]The timing couldn’t be more obvious: Fear is a tremendous motivator for fundraising.[/pullquote]

Some of us aren’t buying Sheriff Babeu’s ploy. Here’s why:

First, any threat of this nature would be announced from the Department of Homeland Security, FBI, Border Patrol and Arizona Department of Public Safety. When a threat is this serious and credible, it is vetted at all levels of government and is passed through multiple chains of command and communications. Governor Doug Ducey would be one of the first to know and to issue warnings through Arizona DPS. The Sheriff claims he was informed about the threat but failed to share it with other law enforcement agencies?

Second, Paul Babeu is a candidate for congress running on a single-issue – immigration and border security. Even though Pinal county does not border Mexico, illegal border crossers still make their way through his jurisdiction – just like they do in every other county in Arizona. We certainly won’t disagree that immigration and border security has become a national security issue we should take seriously, but some politicians have used the issue as a fear-for-votes political strategy. For Paul Babeu, it’s the only issue he knows and he’s using it at every opportunity for pure political gain. Multiple media appearances and fundraising letters from Babeu are evidence of this.

Finally, in law enforcement matters, every serious credible threat demands a serious credible response or action plan. According to reports, during his press conference, Sheriff Babeu made no request for assistance from the Governor’s office, Arizona DPS, Homeland Security, the National Guard, the FBI, etc. Instead, he told private citizens to arm themselves. A review of several Arizona law enforcement agency websites including the Governor’s office, shows no mention of public safety threats by sicarios in the Arizona desert.

We’re not buying it.

The truth is, we have a county sheriff running for Congress who is sensationalizing on the only issue he knows in order to grab media attention and raise money for his political campaign.

In the meantime, private citizens have been told to pack heat in the badlands of Arizona by a sheriff who apparently is finding it difficult to protect his own constituents.

This Memorial Day weekend, we recommend being vigilant of all threats – whether they’re credible or presented for pure political profit.

But most importantly, we ask that you remember and honor those, who against all fear and personal gain, paid the ultimate price through their selfless sacrifice to protect and preserve our freedoms.

What do you think is motivating the Arizona freeway shooter?

DARTH FLAKE: Flake Joins Obama and Clinton in Attacking GOP Senators

emp

Yesterday, Senate Republicans, led by decorated war veteran Sen. Tom Cotton, penned an open letter to the Iranian government informing them that any agreement they reach with President Obama can be undone by future Presidents and Congresses.  The letter has Jeff Flake upset and joining the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton lashing out Senate Republicans.

In an interview with AZ Republic’s Dan Nowicki Flake stated, “I just didn’t think it was appropriate… I’m not very bullish on the chance of these negotiations resulting in a good agreement, or an agreement at all, but we ought to explore it…We ought to give it every opportunity to succeed.”

Per the norm, this attack on Senate Republicans has earned the praise from Cafeteria Catholic AZ Republic columnist Ed Montini who labeled Flake ‘more mature’ than liberal Senator John McCain who was among the 47 Senators that signed Sen Cotton’s letter.  Jeff Flake has officially crossed over to the ‘dark side’ and the fact that he’s now the media’s favorite Republican Senator is just confirmation of that.

2018 cannot come soon enough.

 

Kyrsten Sinema’s Chickens Come Home to Roost!

Sinema’s chickens come home to roost: Defense Officials Say 20 to 30 Former Gitmo Detainees Have Joined ISIS and Other
Syrian Terrorist Groups

(PHOENIX, AZ) – Today, Fox News reports that DoD officials suspect 20 to 30 individuals, who were formerly detained at the U.S. facility at Guantanamo Bay, now have joined ISIS and other groups fighting in Syria.

“Clearly, Kyrsten Sinema has put our country in danger. Congress must show strength and resolve to our enemies. When liberals began talking about closing Guantanamo Bay, our country rightly became worried about recidivism. Now it has come home to roost. Terrorists who were in our custody are now joining an organization that has been threatening our nation, once again putting them in a position to do harm to America. Kyrsten Sinema and her allies have created this harmful contingent, and they lack the courage to fix it,” said James Harris, spokesman for the Wendy Rogers campaign.“The facts are irrefutable. Kyrsten Sinema voted to allow terrorists to be transferred to American soil and tried in U.S. courts.  Sinema also voted against an amendment that would have eliminated funding for the release or transfer of individuals held in Guantanamo Bay.  Even in the face of mounting danger from ISIS, Sinema has stood by these votes. The question is – will Sinema stand by her whimsy now that former detainees have joined ISIS and are once again threatening our nation?  Kyrsten Sinema has weakened our nation. It’s time to send a military veteran to Congress who gets it – that would be Lieutenant Colonel Wendy Rogers.”

CAIR-AZ Update: If You Can’t Beat Them, Fundraise!

Earlier this week we at ArizonaInformer informed you on CAIR-AZ’s attempt to silence Free Speech by forcing the cancellation of Pamela Geller’s appearance at a Mesa Tea Party event.  The attempt turnout to be another Progressive Fail but that is not stopping the Organized Left.

CAIR-AZ President and Hamas apologist Imraan Sadiqqi sent out this email blast to fundraise for what looks to be an Anti-Semitism gala featuring members and fellow travelers from ISNA, the Muslim Student Association as featured speakers.

We have a feeling the event will largely promote the radical Islamist ideology this young woman promotes in this infamous UCSD video:

 

We will update you on this event as this situation warrants.

Wendy Rogers Releases TV Ad Criticizing Sinema’s Weak Record on National Security Issues

Wendy Rogers

(PHOENIX, AZ) – Today, the Wendy Rogers campaign issued its first TV ad against Democrat Kyrsten Sinema.

“Kyrsten Sinema is wrong for Arizona.  From her recent votes on Guantanamo Bay to her past record as an anti-war activist, Kyrsten Sinema is consistently weak on defense.  Kyrsten Sinema’s record speaks for itself.  A former member of the radical anti-war group the Arizona Alliance for Peaceful Justice, she wrote as recently as 2006 that she ‘will always continue to oppose war in all its forms,’ according to The Hill.[1]  She even advocated for the closure of Luke Air Force Base, one of our nation’s top fighter pilot training bases, which is located right here in Arizona,[2]” said Wendy Rogers.

“The only way to keep our nation secure is for our leaders to demonstrate they’ll take decisive action to defend our nation.  Kyrsten Sinema has completely failed this test. She has no credibility in defending our nation.  When asked if our nation should go after ISIS, Kyrsten Sinema dodged the question saying she’d ‘requested a classified briefing’ and would have to ‘carefully evaluate the information’ before she could decide.[3]  Our enemies can smell weakness and lack of resolve. They can read the signals loud and clear from a congresswoman who openly opposes war for any reason and has voted to transfer terrorists out of Guantanamo Bay. She has made a mockery of our national security.  She even led an anti-war protest in a tutu[4].”

The ad exposes Kyrsten Sinema’s weak record on defense, including the following items:

Kyrsten Sinema Voted to Extend Constitutional Legal Rights to Suspected Terrorists

In May 2014, Kyrsten Sinema voted in favor of an amendment which would have allowed the government to transfer suspected terrorists from Guantanamo Bay to criminal jails on U.S. soil and provided for trials under federal or state courts rather than military tribunals.[5]

Kyrsten Sinema Voted Against Prohibiting the Release of Suspected Terrorists

In June 2014, Kyrsten Sinema voted against an amendment which would have defunded federal efforts to release suspected terrorists currently imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay.[6]

Pregnant Mother & U.S. Toddler Tortured while Administration Ignores

By Joanne Moudy

Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag

Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag

Any federal prison in America is like a five star hotel compared to the dungeons of Omdurman Federal Women’s Prison in Khartoum, Sudan.  Even the tent city Sheriff Joe developed for the pink underwear club is luxurious compared to daily beatings, rape, starvation, and bug infested cages of Omdurman’s dungeons.  But that’s precisely where 27 year-old, Dr. Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag and her 20 month-old son, Martin Wani are being held captive.  Yet, as bad as it is right now – it’s about to get a lot worse.

We all know the liberal selfies of the world can’t be bothered with confusing topics or inconsequential issues like religious freedom.  And we can rest easy knowing some nameless U.S. government official said that America was “deeply disturbed” by the Sudan court’s flogging and death sentence.  That translates into, ‘we gave the family 30 seconds of our precious time, but otherwise, we don’t really care.’

But I care.  And I want to know where Barack and Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, the liberal Dreamers and all the other Muslim apologists are in this country.  Martin and the baby are – after all – U.S. citizens, locked in a cage in a dungeon full of infection and terror.

Make no mistake, Obama and his minions spring into action to defend Islam whenever necessary.  But American lives, Christianity, or traditional values – well that’s another story all together.

The President’s own actions demonstrate where his loyalties lie, and they clearly aren’t with America or its Constitution.  In 2012, imprisoned Muslim terrorists at the American Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan cleverly passed secrets back and forth using the interior pages of the Qurans from the prison library.  When it was discovered, American troops appropriately burned the books.  After the burning, Muslim leaders seized the opportunity to strike out at America, rioting and massacring 41 people.  Of course, they ignored the obvious – that their own Muslims had already defaced the Qurans by writing in them.  American soldiers were gunned down by “friendly” Muslims on the base, and four lost their lives.

Instead of standing firm and backing our troops, our Commander-In-Chief inappropriately cowered, apologizing to Muslim leaders while disgracing himself before the world and our U.S. Military.  Obama didn’t even seem to notice the brave soldiers who were slaughtered.

Obama’s next display of Muslim love was his 2012 declarations that the Arab Spring was over and we could all look forward to coexisting peacefully in a warm Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Shari’a, dog-patch mixing bowl of sublime contentment.  Since his ridiculous declaration was followed by the Muslim Brotherhood’s killing spree where they burned down churches and dragged nuns through the streets of Egypt, he was either clueless or in cahoots.  Or both.

His adoring fans were momentarily confused, but fortunately, Obama took time to clarify things while he was in between holes at a golf course on Martha’s Vineyard.

“We don’t take sides,” the President stated. “I know it’s tempting to blame the U.S. or the West (for what?) or some other outside actor for what’s gone wrong . . . ”   But basically folks, we can’t be involved, because . . . well because the rest of his foursome was waiting to tee off.

Of course, right on the heels of Obama’s decisive golf game came the ill-timed visit of Ambassador Chris Stevens to Benghazi, which of course was right after Obama’s decision to transfer guns to the al-Qaeda-aligned Islamist insurgency in Syria.

If Stevens hadn’t been in the wrong place at the wrong time, he and three other heroic Americans might still be alive today.  Because as we all know, the entire shootout and blow-up of the embassy was coincidental to a ‘dangerous’ YouTube video release, and not the transfer of arms to terrorists.

Come on folks, is the entire leadership of this country on crack?  I only ask because two-and-a-half years later, America still doesn’t have the truth and we are so far down the road to ruin that a strong wind could end this once great nation.

Sadly, based upon Obama’s history of embracing Muslims, it doesn’t come as a huge surprise that he won’t even glance in the direction of a beautiful, intelligent 27 year-old pregnant mother being tortured, personally violated (while eight months pregnant), starved and isolated in a horrific prison full of bugs and disease.

But it is absolutely unforgivable that her son; a black, 20 month-old, U.S. citizen named Martin, who’s locked in a filthy, bug ridden cage in the same prison – can’t get so much as a nod from Obama and/or fast-tracked out of there by the State Department.

Surely the plight of this legal citizen toddler deserves the same outrage that Obama spewed forth for Trayvon.  Since Obama stated Trayvon could easily have been his own son, perhaps he could see his way clear to take the frail Martin under his liberal wing and get him freed from that hell hole.

But then again, Martin is not Trayvon, and the toddler’s crime of being a 20 month-old Christian American in the all Muslim city of Khartoum is apparently far more grievous to our nation’s black leaders, than a teen with a rap sheet.

Of course the First Lady is too busy to be involved.  After all, she just made that all important trip to Topeka, Kansas, where she so ‘eloquently’ stated, “When you encounter folks who still hold the old prejudices because they’ve only been around folks like themselves . . . it is up to you to help them see things differently.”

See things differently?  I guess it’s easier to tell that to a group of American high school students and not to her Muslim buddies in the Sudanese government.  Or maybe it’s just easier for the First Lady to bash Christianity, traditional marriage and pro-life values, since that’s exactly what she did.  That’s got to be a pretty proud moment for her.

Meanwhile, Hillary’s busy on the campaign trail trying to live down her early resume when she worked for the communist run law firm of Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein.  True, she’s tried to bury that memory, but some people don’t forget.

But surely she hasn’t forgotten how ‘it takes a village’ to raise a child (unless the child is an American citizen in a prison in Khartoum) and that this might be the right time to raise her voice against the holocaust happening in Shari’a run countries.  I suspect she’s too busy covering up that little Benghazi thing and those unfortunate sequences of events that don’t really make a difference – to notice Meriam, the baby or Martin.

They are, after all, just fighting to stay alive and get through the massacre that’s in front of them with dignity.   But I don’t think dignity is a word in Hillary’s vocabulary.

And Mr. Kerry . . . where is your outrage?  Could it be that you used up all your emotions gallivanting around with your old pal, Jane Fonda back in the 1960’s?  Because the two of you sure shared a lot of hatred, treachery, and outrage against American fighting troops back then.  Now that you’re Secretary of State, perhaps you could pull a few strings and have coffee with someone in Sudan and demand Martin’s release . . . then again, you’re probably too busy bashing America.

And where are John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John McCain, Jeff Flake, and all the other ‘Dreamers’ in this country who rag on and on, spewing their diatribe about open borders and embracing illegal aliens who aren’t within ten years of legally earning U.S. Citizenship?

Considering Meriam’s young son, Martin, is already a legal American citizen who’s been subjected to unimaginable trauma and torture for the last four months, one would think the lad could at least get some attention from these collective buffoons.  Instead their silence is as deafening as the rest.

Could it be that their feigned fretting over the illegal alien population is as fabricated as their fake concern for future of this country?  Could it be that their one true agenda is about the new world order of secularist tyranny?

And finally, where is Ms. Sandra Fluke?  (Not that I really care.)

When Ms. Fluke graduated from Georgetown University Law Center, who could deny she was in a desperate plight.  The poor girl had no hope of ever being able to afford a condom or a $29 dollar pack of birth control pills.  Bless the left for rising up and supporting her – because now she can move on and live her left-wing legal life to it’s fullest, having all the unrestricted sex she desires without ever having to worry about paying for protection.

Whew!  I’m certain her trauma was every woman’s worst nightmare!

On the flip side is Meriam, eight months pregnant, being repeatedly assaulted and beaten in a prison because of her faith.  Even worse, and what many have already forgotten is that as soon as she delivers her baby, exhausted and dehydrated, she will be subjected to a horrific flogging.  Imagine her frail skin being ripped off as each of the 100 lashes tear across her back and chest.  And that is just the first of her two sentences.

She and Martin are in a living Hell.  Make no mistake, the president and his gang have the keys to free all of them.  A simple phone call would suffice, especially with a few missiles aimed appropriately at their military.  But as with Ambassador Stevens, they’d rather embrace the radical Shari’a Muslims than save two legal American children and rescue their mother who’s married to a U.S. Citizen.
