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

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.

Congressman Matt Salmon Statement in Remembrance of September 11th Attacks

Washington—Today, Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) released the following statement in remembrance of the September 11th attacks in the United States of America and in Benghazi, Libya.

“Today, we take a moment to observe the anniversary of the horrific attack on the United States of America that shook the very soul of our nation. Twelve years ago, we were hit, but not defeated. As Americans always do, we stood back up with strong resolve to move forward. Let us remember the brevity of life, the presence of evil in this world, and the strength we see in America’s heroes. We are grateful for their countless acts of courageous service and sacrifice.

“On this day, we also remember the four American service members and diplomats struck down by terrorists one year ago in Benghazi, Libya. We must continue to pursue justice in their name.

“As our nation moves forward from these tragic events, we resolve to never forget and to never stop sacrificing for those values that matter most—life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. May God continue to comfort the families of the victims and heroes, and may God continue to bless the United States of America.”

Maricopa GOP Chair Rallies LD Censures

To all Arizona County and LD Republican Committee Chairmen -
Below is the front page article of the July 15 Arizona Capitol Times. I want to express my appreciation to those courageous and principled County and LD Republican Committees who have already conducted votes of “censure” and/or “no confidence.”
Jan Brewer, the legislators and their crony capitalist friends that support ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion have betrayed Americans, Arizona Republicans and the Republican Party Platform.  Their lack of ethics, integrity and egregious acts are motivated by only two things – greed and the lust for power – at the expense of hard working tax paying Americans.
The law was expected to cost $898 billion over the first decade when the bill was first passed, but this year the Congressional Budget Office revised that estimate to $1.85 trillion.  Money that will have to be borrowed from the Chinese or printed in the backroom of the Federal Reserve.  Latest polls indicate a majority of Americans are opposed to ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion with an overwhelming majority of Republicans in opposition.
During the past six months, we did everything we could to make a solid argument against ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion, we tried to reason with these people and even tried to make them see the light.  Unfortunately, our lobbying efforts fell on deaf ears and without success.
During one of Ronald Reagan’s difficult political battles he said,
               “When you can’t make them see the light, make them feel the heat.”
I’m asking all the County and LD Republican Committees to make these people feel the heat by passing public censures for their actions.  They are elitists who think what they have done should be forgiven. They are mistaken.  We are not going to be able to defeat all of them, but we can defeat a majority of them in the 2014 Primary Election.
You can go to “MCRC Briefs” and get examples of public censures that have already been passed.  http://briefs.maricopagop.org/  Just type “censure” in the search field on the left.
Warmest regards,
 A. J. LaFaro
Chairman, Maricopa County Republican Committee
P.S.  Please encourage all of your PCs to keep up their daily efforts in getting petition signatures for www.urapc.org  Getting ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion on the November 2014 ballot will be historic for Arizona’s grassroots conservatives.

Rep. Paul Gosar Introduces the F.A.U.L.T Act

Congressman Paul Gosar

‘Sending billions of taxpayer dollars overseas to hostile countries is unconscionable’   

WASHINGTON, D.C. -U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S (AZ-04) introduced the Foreign Assistance Under Limitation and Transparency Act or the F.A.U.L.T Act. This legislation is intended to limit foreign aid to five countries that undermine U.S. foreign policy objectives – Iran, North Korea, Syria, Egypt, and Pakistan. Rep. Gosar issued the following statement:

“Sending billions of taxpayer dollars overseas to hostile countries is unconscionable. Yet, only in Washington, D.C. does it make sense to pay other governments to undermine our foreign policy objectives.”

Rep. Gosar continued, “When countries like Iran, North Korea, Syria, Egypt, and Pakistan act like enemies rather than friends toward the United States and our allies, the time to cut them off from U.S. taxpayer dollars is now.”

Rep. Gosar previously introduced amendments to the last two Department of Defense Appropriations Acts that sought to ensure that foreign aid was not given to hostile international regimes and organizations.  He has introduced the F.A.U.L.T Act as stand-alone legislation in the hope to expand upon these principles and codify them into law.

As the first decade of the 21st century nears an end, the Middle East is a region with multiple conflicts that impact the world, and particularly the United States. With Iran crossing the nuclear threshold, civil wars raging in Iraq, Sudan, and Yemen, Christians embattled across the region, with Israel in existential peril and its survival being questioned, and radical Islam sweeping beyond the region, it is imperative, as Americans, that we have a knowledge and understanding of this region. Historian, author, and radio personality, Dr. Steven Carol can shed light on these issues and answer questions that arise. His books can be purchased at the seminar.

Big First Day for Border Fence Donation Website

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 21, 2011
CONTACT: Mike Philipsen

People from all 50 states offer financial support 

(State Capitol, Phoenix) – The totals are in from the first day of donations to help build a fence along the Arizona-Mexico border. More than $58,000 poured in to www.buildtheborderfence.com from 1,265 donors in just the first 24 hours.

“The Federal Government has made it abundantly clear that it has no interest in addressing the invasion of drug cartels, violent gangs, illegal aliens and terrorists along the border. The U.S. wants this problem addressed, and this is one way we’re doing it,” says Sen. Steve Smith, a Republican from Maricopa. Smith sponsored SB 1406, legislation that established a website for the purpose of raising private money to help build a border fence.

The border remains porous, and Arizona is taking one step toward true border security. From California to Texas, the southern border is approximately 2,000 miles, and only roughly 685 miles is fenced. The remaining 1300+ miles of the border have no fencing at all.

All the funds raised at www.buildtheborderfence.com are held in a trust fund account in the Arizona State Treasurer’s Office. The Joint Border Security Advisory Committee, established in the bill, will oversee the project.

Every state in the union was represented on the first day of donations, and that does not surprise Sen. Smith.

“We have always said with illegal immigration, ‘what happens in Arizona doesn’t stay in Arizona’. This is a crisis for the nation, and it is gratifying to know that all 50 states agree,” says Sen. Smith.

Speaker Tobin Calls for Cyber Terrorists to be Held Accountable

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 24, 2011
CONTACT: Daniel Scarpinato

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX (June 24, 2011) – Speaker Andy Tobin released the following statement in response to the hacking group LulzSec breaking into the Arizona Department of Public Safety’s computers on Thursday and downloading hundreds of files:

“I am outraged to learn that a group of international hackers have illegally stolen and released hundreds of law enforcement files from the Department of Public Safety. Even more outrageous is that they have done this in response to the Legislature and Governor’s efforts to secure our border and protect Arizona citizens by passing SB1070. Instead, this extremist group has now put hundreds of Arizona’s finest in danger. These cyber terrorists should be prosecuted to the full extent possible. Their actions have compromised the safety of our brave law enforcement officers and their families. Therefore, we will be looking at whether additional policy is needed to fully hold them accountable in the event the release of this information results in harm to any of our public safety officers or their families.”

National ID, Misguided State Legislation, the Clintons and E-Verify: What do they have in Common?

  States send children’s school enrollment data to the Feds.  This data has always been protected under FERPA and other privacy laws.

Now the Department of Education is creating new regulations rolling back the privacy of that data – as the federal government always does once they have the data they want – so they can use it for other purposes not agreed to previously by the students, parents, or states.

You Have Until Monday, May 23…to Object to DOE’s Invasion of Student Privacy

The Department of Education (DOE) has proposed regulatory changes that would gut the primary federal student-privacy statute, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). FERPA imposes strict limits on how the government may use so-called Personally Identifiable Information (PII) collected on students by schools or government education agencies. Under the proposed changes to the regulations issued under FERPA, DOE would enable a system of massive data collection on students – potentially including such things as family income range, hair color, blood type, and health-care history – that could then be shared with other government agencies (both federal and in other states) for unspecified purposes. This disclosure of PII could be accomplished without parents’ consent, and in most cases without even their knowledge.

And because the data-collection and sharing would begin when the student is in preschool and follow him even through his entry into the workforce, the possibilities of breach of privacy and unwarranted use of data are almost limitless.

Follow the student into the workforce.  Here we go, it’s the Clinton “Goals 2000″ program all over again.

From the Eagle Forum’s opposition to this published in 1996

Two other bills, still pending, are designed to advance the School-to-Work phase of Goals 2000. The Careers Act (H.R. 1617) and the Workforce Development Act (S.143) will support a nationwide workforce development system, state by state. Funding is provided for “one stop career” employment agencies under the supervision of the federal government. Please, let’s not let these bills become law.

E-Verify is a front-end user interface sitting ontop of the Clinton’s vision of cradle to grave workforce development, school-to-work initiatives.

The data being released under the new Department of Education regulatory changes goes right into the database sitting behind e-Verify:

The concept of “state longitudinal data systems” (SLDS) is the driving force behind the proposed regulatory changes. In its attempt to further federalize education through Race to the Top and other statutes, DOE wants to construct massive and interconnected data systems that will allow various government agencies – and even private entities, perhaps including employers — to access students’ personal information without the knowledge or consent of the students or their parents. SLDS structures in some states, such as Illinois, already contemplate the sharing of PII for purposes far beyond effective education of children – for example, to create “a network of federal, state, and local offices that . . . facilitate the development of the United States workforce.” Indeed, DOE itself argues that “there is no reason why a State health and human services or labor department, for example, should be precluded from . . . receiving non-consensual disclosures of PII to link education, workforce, health, family services, and other data”

There are even “conservatives” who read and remark on SonoranAlliance about how two wrongs DO make a right.  In other words, since the federal government already has the data “who cares?” – let’s just use it to achieve our momentary agenda and not worry what the Dems do when they get into power and have the database.

Beyond being a ridiculous an liberal point of view conservatives who assert the above hold, where is the constitution in all of this?

A cursory read of the constitution says NOTHING about this data collection, sharing or spending any money to do any of it!

It’s just not in there.

So, the days of “conservatives” asserting unconstitutionalism is coming to a close.  You either believe in the constitution or you don’t.  Saying you believe in it means nothing.  ACTING in support of (or against as many conservatives now do) the constitution means EVERYTHING.

Thank you to a previous SA commenter for this apt quote.  Two wrongs still do not make a right. 

…when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government…

DO YOU KNOW THESE WORDS?

Teaparty, y’all!

Counterpoint

It’s far too early to suggest the government can’t be fixed by normal channels when voting still works. The November 2010 elections are proof that that power of The People still exists. How peculiar to be arguing isolation and despair when the 2012 elections are just ahead, a BIG chance to make CHANGE at the BALLOT BOX.

PATIENCE is a VIRTUE. We need to remind ourselves of this in this instant gratification age.

There is NO SUBSTITUTE FOR HARD WORK.  If people want change in 2012, they will have to work together with a lot of other poeple to achieve that at the ballot box.  It means putting aside petty differences and functioning as a national team, the PEOPLE acting through the Constitution to preserve their Constitutional rights.

It is not right to discourage people into believing government is not changeable through lawful processes. That’s simply not true at this point in time. Further, unlawful processes have no backing by the majority of the People. If the system is torn down, there is no consensus as to lawful means of gaining power. Then chaos and anarchy rule, and usually the toughest, baddest prevail, precisely NOT what people wanted.

This is also unBiblical to advocate non-cooperation, as God commands to “obey the authorities.”   The teachings of Christ constantly state that the kingdom is in heaven, NOT on earth.  Earth will be problematic, be challenging, be hard.  Any preaching to establish a kingdom on earth is heresy, one of the three temptations Satan put to Jesus Christ to intice him off his purpose.

Even in a tyranny, any nation is in a better state after a lawful removal of leaders than by an unlawful removal of leadership. Honduras was an excellent example of the RIGHT way to deal with presidential unlawfulness because they established a CONSTITUTIONAL CONSENSUS amongst the branches of government.  Devastated Liberia and Sierra Leone are grim warnings that unlawful seizing of power, even with the seductive excuse of a corrupt government creates WORSE problems. Usurpers may have self-righteously removed the heads of state, but tiem and time again prove by wretched failures that they have not captured the CONSENT of the PEOPLE.

That said, “grumpy isolationists” and their alarmist rhetoric haven’t yet demonstrated they deserve being lumped in with “terrorists” who are designated as such by a proven record of murder and mayhem. It seems to diminish the guilt of the historical and contemporary terrorists who are blowing up people and chopping off heads, while inflating the threat of people who spent most of their time spouting high-falutin’ rhetoric without doing much else that actually bothers anyone else.   Just trying to argue and convince to win people to the debate side isn’t enough.  That’s just free speech.

The Constitution discusses the right of dissolving offending governments by the consensus of the people, which means VOTE.  Until THAT mechanism is totally taken from the PEOPLE, it is the way to orderly and lawful changes of goevrnance.

The Agendas Behind the bin Laden News Event

The Agendas Behind the bin Laden News Event

by Paul Craig Roberts, a former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury under President Ronald Reagan and former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal.

Excerpts:

The US government’s bin Laden story was so poorly crafted that it did not last 48 hours before being fundamentally altered. Indeed, the new story put out on Tuesday by White House press secretary Jay Carney bears little resemblance to the original Sunday evening story. The fierce firefight did not occur. Osama bin Laden did not hide behind a woman. Indeed, bin Laden, Carney said, “was not armed.”

The White House has also had to abandon the story that President Obama and his national security team watched tensely as events unfolded in real time (despite the White House having released photos of the team watching tensely), with the operation conveyed into the White House by cameras on the SEALs helmets. If Obama was watching the event as it happened, he would have noticed, one would hope, that there was no firefight and, thus, would not have told the public that bin Laden was killed in a firefight.

Are Arizona Conservatives that naive about Grover Norquist?

Plenty of political unrest brewing over an event scheduled Thursday night featuring the President of Americans for Tax Reform and founder of the Islamic Free Market Institute, Grover Norquist.

National security advocates including Pamela Geller, David Horowitz and Frank Gaffney have all been very vocal in their opposition to Norquist’s standing in the conservative movement.

In March, 2010, Pamela Geller wrote an article for American Thinker:

Grover Norquist’s ties to Islamic supremacists and jihadists have been known for years. He and his Palestinian wife, Samah Alrayyes — who was director of communications for his Islamic Free Market Institute until they married in 2005 — are very active in “Muslim outreach.” Just six weeks after 9/11, TheNew Republic ran an exposé explaining how Norquist arranged for George W. Bush to meet with fifteen Islamic supremacists at the White House on September 26, 2001 — to show how Muslims rejected terrorism. (read entire article, “Grover Norquist Jihad.”)

Over a year ago, Founder and President of The Center for Security Policy, Frank Gaffney, issued the following video warning and challenge:

And here is what David Horowitz had to say about Norquist as recent as February 12th of this year during his keynote at CPAC 2011:

YouTube Preview Image

Arizona advocates for strong national security and border security policy should be more than a little concerned about Norquist’s appearance at this casual Republican event tomorrow night. Friends of Israel should be even more alarmed that the Norquist soiree will hoodwink more conservatives into a false sense of peace and security regarding our single most important ally in the Middle East.

Those Arizona conservatives who venture to show at tomorrow night’s Norquist event should ask Mr. Norquist the hard questions. At at time when the country is debating the proper burial treatment by the Obama Administration of the most notorious terrorist in history, someone ought to press Mr. Norquist on his sensitivities and sensibilities in the battle against Islamic terrorism.

 

Rep Schweikert Statement on Osama Bin Laden

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 2, 2011
CONTACT: Rachel Semmel

Washington, D.C. – Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ) issued the following statement today regarding the killing of Osama bin Laden:

“God bless our brave men and women in uniform who have sacrificed so much to catch Osama bin Laden. Thanks to the persistence and bravery of our intelligence community and our troops on the ground, this is truly a great moment for our country. Though we cannot bring back the lives of those we lost, we can have peace that justice has been served. We will never forgot those who lost their lives on attacks on our country and those who died defending it.”

Rep. Quayle Statement on the Death of Osama Bin Laden

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 2, 2011
CONTACT: Richard Cullen

WASHINGTON (D.C.) Congressman Ben Quayle (R-AZ) released the following statement regarding the death of Osama Bin Laden:

“Nearly ten years after the horrors of September 11th, the man most responsible for the attacks has been brought to justice. This development is a monumental achievement made possible by continuous operations of American intelligence officials and members of the United States Armed forces, many of whom were inspired to serve their country following the attacks in New York and Washington. While Bin Laden’s death is indeed significant, the threat of terrorism around the world will not dissipate. For the thousands of Americans who lost loved ones on 9/11 and in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, justice has been served tonight.”

Reducing Medicaid Fraud Georgia Style

 They keep saying it’s not for law abiding citizens, but here you go…

Georgia State Bill Requires Biometric ID

The Georgia State Senate has approved a bill that would require senior citizens in the state to acquire a biometric ID card to access Medicaid for health care, according to a WSBTV article.

The new bill, which passed on a 34-21 margin, stipulates the use of fingerprint biometrics for each of the ID cards.


The new measure was introduced as a way to curb Medicaid fraud in the state.

Medicaid recipient’s would be issued a smart card that would store the individual’s fingerprint data. When the patient arrives for an appointment the smart card and fingerprint would be scanned to verify identity. The card would also include the recipient’s photo.

In Arizona, I know “conservatives” are trying to do that to “stop illegals.” 

Meanwhile the border is left open and “conservative” Jan Brewer is withdrawing the national guard from the border.  Also, “conservatives” in legislature want to require ID checks for all citizens and run them against the US Department of Homeland Security.

I hate to remind you that that’s PRECISELY what the Clintons wanted to impose on US citizens in the early nineties, specifically defeated by the conservatives elected to Congress in 1994.

And now “conservatives” in Arizona want to impose all of this on law abiding Arizona citizens here and now – yet meanwhile do nothing at the border.

DONT TAKE WOODEN NICKELS.

The IDs are for *US*, not for illegals and don’t let these RINO legislators bamboozle you into believing otherwise.  Check their campaign donations to see if they are getting money from, for example and among others,

L1 Systems,  RedFlex, or ATS, or  the Arizona Corporation Commission whom these companies donate through to politicians to mask their donations

Teaparty, y’all!
