Guest Opinion: DeeDee Garcia Blase ‘So why be a Republican?’

By Neal Goldberg

It seems as though not only are you correct on your assessment of Ms. Blase as a stand alone organization. She is decidedly someone who is looking for attention in the worst sort of way. One look at her website is proof of that. But she is actually dangerous to the Latino Community because she is not even aware of the issues that face the Hispanic community.

On a facebook thread regarding a Washington Post article concerning republicans having a hard time arousing the Latino population, She commented that she was partial to George J. Bush for President…. because she had a bias (Latino I am presuming). I told her that he was a Bush and a Globalist. What came next shocked me. This was her reply….

“Globalism is a helluva lot better than isolationist views, Neal. Healthy trade with other countries prompts relationship building. You cut that off and there is absolutely no hope for “world peace”. Liberals are funny people. They think peace can be miraculously discovered all on it’s own. You you have healthy world-wide trade (money exchanged)…the global climate is much better. It’s not perfect, but it’s a helluva lot better than finding NO common denominator at all.” 

While I will leave out my angst about her comment, I will just apprise you of my response…

“You have GOT to be taken the hook line and sinker DeeDee. Its as if we didn’t trade with anyone for thousands of years and all of a sudden broke the trade barriers! You are saying nothing but talking points DeeDee and unfortunately, either ……you are now brainwashed or you just don’t know better…don’t know which! Has free trade been a help or hinder? More jobs? No. More Immigration? Yes. Capital flight? Yes. The absolute rise in Corporatism? Yes. A healthy economy? No. Now all of a sudden you drag the word PEACE in with all of this and mix it with Liberalism?? You are so freakin mixed up, you don’t know what the hell is going on do you? Before “Free” trade, you had PROTECTIONISM, where each country had its own protection called “tariffs” on goods being imported into their own country, and when the protectionism is lifted, it is a race to the bottom. Or have you forgotten what Free trade has done to Mexico, or Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador where most of Latin America is coming for jobs. Or are you now so REPUBLICAN that you are willing to forsake your own people and enjoy the slavery that now exists in our Agriculture under the guise of free trade? If that is republicanism, I want nothing to do with slave traders. I am truly saddened and disappointed in you DeeDee. And so should anyone reading this post.” 

Instead of replying of course, she deleted my post because it was to much to answer that post.

So, in other words, DeeDee is only a Republican because she thinks that Democrats are baby killers…

“Before I give you the short answer, I have to preface this by saying that Deedee agrees with the Democrats on all these issues that affect minorities or immigrants. Prop 107, SB1070, etc.

So why be a Republican?

Simple answer: Because Democrats are baby-killers (abortion). ” (See http://tucsoncitizen.com/three-sonorans/2011/01/30/three-sonorans-debates-deedee-blase-of-somos-republican-sunday-at-noon/)

So, to sum this all up, Blase is ready to sell her soul, and her own heritage, for the simplicity of her views on right to life issues.

For the Good of the Latino Population, she needs to be called out for what she is. A Democrat in sheep’s clothing pretending to be a Republican because its easier to get noticed as a Hispanic woman as a Republican, with Pro-life views willing to sell everyone out for that one purpose.

I hope this helps you in putting Blase where she needs to be put. Out to pasture where she cannot do any harm.

Arizona Senate fails on Immigration…again.

Sen. Steve Yarbrough, R-Chandler; Sen. Steve Gallardo, D-Phoenix; Sen. Paula Aboud, D-Tucson; Senate Minority Leader David Schapira, D-Tempe; and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Phoenix have all voted “NO” to a set of important, but highly contested immigration bills (Birthright Citizenship: Senate Bill 308 and SB 1309, Reporting requirements: SB 1405, Immigration Omnibus: SB 1611, ) that went through the Arizona Senate. These measures, for the most part, would have made life much more difficult for illegal aliens residing in Arizona.Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last year or so, you’d know that Arizona has put immigration reform at the forefront of political talk shows, websites, and other media.

Many of the Senators that voted down these measures sighted that the bills were “morally reprehensible” and that they would hurt Arizona’s economy. One Senator even went as far as saying that passing the Birthright citizenship bill in particular could even result in a reinterpretation of the 14th Amendment. Conservative leaders and local Tea Party groups alike are taken back by the actions of their state government (again), considering all of the media attention and efforts made by these groups to support  Sen. Russell Pearce and SB 1070.

It’s important to note that this is not over; not by a long shot. As the media has reported, these measures could be proposed as an amendment to an unrelated bill in the near future, or one of the Senators who voted “no” on the measures could ask for a re-vote. Option two sounds unlikely right? Well, maybe not…

The media is downplaying this saying that it’s more likely the measures would return as proposed legislation next session, however, considering that the state Democrats are getting really tired of fighting Republicans on the immigration issue; its much more like that this will appear as a “motion to reopen” or “motion to reconsider”. You see, the Democrats have gotten smarter…okay not smarter, they have gotten sneakier. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who is pro-illegal immigration, had made comments indicating that she might want to motion to reconsider. She understands very well that only a Senator that voted “No” can motion to reconsider the bills. She’s also aware that if these bills fail twice then they cannot be brought back to a vote; more or less killing the measures as they stand. And since a motion to reconsider takes precedence, these bills will not again be reconsidered – killing the movement. So to those that support the anti-illegal immigration position, and to those that understand what these bills are and what they do…you have about two or three days to act. A motion to reconsider could happen as soon as Monday…so I say again, you have 3 legislative days to contact  all of the Senators that voted “no” and persuade them to say yes the next time this comes to a vote. If you don’t take action, then consider yourself part of the problem.

Below is a link to the contact information for each Senator that voted “No” on these bills. I would urge you to email, send faxes and call their offices to urge them to cast a “Yes” vote on these measures if presented again as soon as you possibly can.

SB1070 & the Tea Party…

The national media outlets and leaders of certain minority communities are blasting the airwaves and internet with “legal opinions” about the new immigration law and even suggesting boycotts against Arizona — ironically most of these comments are from people who are not from Arizona. Like so many other issues that we conservatives find to be important, the leftist controlled media has distorted what SB 1070 will do.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said the federal government may challenge Arizona’s new law, and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, said Arizona’s new immigration law could siphon federal money and staff needed to go after truly dangerous immigrants.

I want make one thing very clear here….Gov. Jan Brewer did not write federal immigration laws that require permanent residents to carry green cards, or make it mandatory for employers to check immigration documentation. Washington did.

Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen stated on a blog that “The federal law is very clear, if you are here on a visa you must have your papers on you at all times. That is the law. In Arizona all you need to show that you are a legal citizen is a valid driver license, MVD identification card, Native American Card, or a Military ID. This is what you need to vote, rent a car, or to use a credit card when shopping. So nothing new has been added to the federal law.”

SB1070 requires police officers, “when practicable,” to detain people they reasonably suspect are in the country without authorization and to verify their status with federal officials, unless doing so would hinder an investigation or emergency medical treatment. It also makes it a a misdemeanor to not carry immigration papers. In addition, it allows people to sue local government or agencies if they believe federal or state immigration law is not being enforced. Some opposing the bill state that Arizona doesn’t have the right to enforce this law, but according to a blog post by Attorney Walter Moore:

In 1983, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit — you read that right, the Ninth Circuit — concluded, in Gonzales v. City of Peoria, 722 F.2d 468, that, “Although the regulation of immigration is unquestionably an exclusive federal power, it is clear that this power does not preempt every state activity affecting aliens.” Rather, when “state enforcement activities do not impair federal regulatory interests concurrent enforcement is authorized.” The Court accordingly held “that federal law does not preclude local enforcement of the criminal provisions” of federal immigration law.

No one is going to be stopped on their way to an ice cream parlor or walking down the street. The Liberals who are in power in DC are angry because we dare try and do something about the problem. They want the “Transformation” of America that President Obama has talked about to continue.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) did an analysis of the latest Census data which indicates that Arizona’s illegal immigrant population is currently costing the state’s taxpayers about $2.2 billion per year for education, medical care and incarceration. In 2020 that number is estimated to rise to $3.9 billion. Those costs do not include Special English instruction, school nutrition programs, or basic welfare benefits.

To put this into perspective, the proposed Prop 100 sales tax that has everyone in a frenzy will raise about $1 billion annually from the private sector. Illegal immigration clearly costs Arizona taxpayers more than any proposed tax hike. So I ask you this, if the Tea Party movement is about lower taxes and fiscal responsibility; should we or should we not get involved in this debate?

Bottom line, we can’t afford to pay for the illegal population that is here now . This administrations push for Amnesty will tear this County, this State and our Country apart. Amnesty will be a genie that cannot be placed back in the bottle.
