Arizona’s “Shots Heard ‘Round the World”

©2010 drkate

Thank you, Arizona.

Arizona fired two clear shots over the bow of the dinghy bowbama (h/t LC)  during its 2010 legislative session: expanding state enforcement of  its own and federal immigration laws, and requiring constitutional eligibility determinations as a condition of ballot access in 2012.  Obama is surely sweating over both of these actions, but can only show his anger at the illegal immigration action. He is caught flat-footed on the eligibility requirement in his attempt to gain a second term.

Obama is fuming. How dare Arizona pass a bill giving its law enforcement officers authority to deal with the invasion of illegal immigrants?  While he vows to review its ‘consistency with federal law’ :roll:, Obama is caught once again letting the Nation’s defenses down, and this provides a perfect opportunity for the Several States and Patriots to act in self-defense.

The self-defense tool?  The powers retained to the states under the Tenth Amendment.

Enforcing Immigration Laws

Arizona currently has nearly a half million illegal immigrants living within its borders, and border violence has increasingly taken its toll on Arizonans.  While open-borders advocates and illegal immigration advocates claim the bill will increase racial profiling, State Senator Russell Pearce (R-Mesa) simply responds that “illegal is not a race.”  The bill does contain strict guidance that does not permit racial profiling.

Senate Bill 1070,  the “Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe   Neighborhoods Act”  was signed into law on April 23, 2010.   The Governor cited  Arizona’s patience with the federal government in seeking its increased enforcement and indicated the State had to act.

From Governor Janet Brewer (R)

I believe Arizona, like America, is governed by laws. Good laws … well-intentioned laws … laws that confer respect and that demand respect in return. In his third State of the Union address, President Theodore Roosevelt said, “No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man’s permission when we require him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor.”

The bill does not prohibit emergency aid to illegal immigrants but makes it a crime to harbor an illegal alien.  Hundreds of protesters held a vigil in opposition to S. 1070.

By the way, the Governor’s predecessor, Janet Napolitano, vetoed two similar bills.  Now I understand why Obama chose her as head of Homeland Security: Napolitano is pro-illegal immigration and open borders, apparently, regardless of how many terrorists slip over the border with the others.  She is violating federal law by ignoring the problem.

Proof of Constitutional Eligibility as a Condition for Ballot Access

The media are panicking over Arizona’s bill to require a presidential candidate to prove his constitutional eligibility as a condition for being on the state’s ballot. Lame Cherry calls this the “Arizona Filibuster“, where one state stops the other 49 from voting on Obama.

According to this report,

Arizona’s measure would require U.S. presidential candidates to submit documents to the secretary of state proving they meet the constitutional requirements to be president. The secretary of state could then decide to keep a candidate off the Arizona ballot if he or she had reasonable cause to believe the candidate was ineligible.

But the Secretary of State, a republican obama-enabler rino republican believes the bill gives his office ‘too much power’ 😯 and has no doubts about Obama’s citizenship.  Keep this statement in mind, Patriots, when he refuses to verify Obama’s constitutional eligibility in 2012; he is compelled by this state law to do so.

Obama and the socialist democrats studied and took advantage of the lack of specific directive to anyone to verify the constitutional eligibility of a presidential candidate.  Further, they took advantage of Americans’ collective trust in a presidential candidate daring to run for, and occupy the presidency knowing he was not eligible.

Arizona and the Articles of Freedom

Arizona’s recent actions on immigration and eligibility are excellent strategic moves for a state interested in protecting itself from invasion: both from illegal immigrants and from an illegal occupant of the White House.  The State has acted using its own authority under the Tenth Amendment to exercise inherent powers reserved to it.

The Articles of Freedom, specifically the sections on Immigration and Eligibility, recommended the states take action on these issues in exactly the same way Arizona did.  Both subcommittees of the Continental Congress 2009 reviewed the problem and came to the same conclusions Arizona did. Our conclusion is that both issues are national security matters.

This is, as you can imagine, extremely gratifying…whether those Articles of Freedom are on the desks of Arizonan legislators or not, we know freedom, liberty, and American solutions are in the air and in the minds of great men and women, and will prevail over Obama.  Like an avalanche.

So, while Obama cynically takes advantage of Americans’ and no ‘federal law’ or check preventing his usurpation, Arizona calls his bluff.  By Arizona’s action, Nancy Pelosi will not be able to fraudulently verify Obama as she did in 2008, nor can anyone for that matter. 😛

And while Obama plays golf and the justice department, homeland security, and the CIA look the other way while terrorists pour into the United States through Mexico they hope and plan for a false flag event that can be blamed on Americans for ‘overreacting’ to massive invasion.  But Arizona calls his bluff, and exposes him at the same time. 😛

Thank you, Arizona.

    A catalog of state 10th amendment actions in 2009 and 2010 will absolutely confirm that the people are righting the ship and throwing off excess baggage. 😛

    Arizona ROCKS!!!
    My next vacay I’m heading is there to spend money.

    I hope the Tenth Amendment will be used by more states to fight off the massive health care plan being foreced on us.

    Well, it’s being forced on some of us.

    Did you all realize that Muslims are exempt?

    This is infuriating!!

    Article IV Section 4.

    The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

    “The Federal level has a duty to be responsible, per barky, (in order prevent other levels from being irresponsible.”)

    Does this jackass ever make sense?

    And I still want to know where he was on the weekend that the Polish Peoples’ government officials were slain. I don’t believe he ducked out a 9:00 am Sunday. Bullpuckies. If he lied about his whereabouts, than why believe the time he claims he left the White House? Where’s the Press and why don’t they care?

  5. 8 swh April 24, 2010 at 7:03 am

    Thanks once more, DrK, for highlighting these two exciting signals. You have again brought a smile to many faces ’round the world’ with your penetrating political perspective on facts that will no doubt become pivitol in the days ahead.

  6. 9 no-nonsence-nancy April 24, 2010 at 7:50 am

    Thanks, Dr. Kate. If only we could see BO and MO leave the White House in hand cuffs soon! American patriots should not have to endure any more of his tyranny.
    Good for Arizona! I hope more states do the same thing.

    What a pity, poor Islamic Terrorist’s feelings may be hurt if Franklin Graham prays in America on our National Day of Prayer.

    Wow, we would not want them to take it out on our Soldiers fighting this silly season all wee-weeed up imaginary war, would we?

    So let’s submit and everything will be honkey-dorey. Okay, its all good now. Let’s pretend, boys and girls, that the Islamic religion is not based on Judea-Christian beliefs. They made it up all by themselves, way back in 625 a.d. Muhammad invented the light bulb, too. He saw it in a vision the day he got a big idea.

    Jan Brewer may have just gotten the “first olive out of the jar”—who knows what state and individual actions will follow.
    It has taken much longer than I had expected, but the opposition to this bho fiasco is building and converging. HOOWAH !!!

  9. 12 heather April 24, 2010 at 9:09 am


    Great job as usual! If only the powers that be would do their jobs and investigate these criminals, we the people would not have too, but then, would theirs be fact or fiction.

    WE THE PEOPLE will never again allow ourselves to be asleep and take their lies as truths ever again! We are so wide awake that some of us can’t close 1 eye to sleep again.

    WE THE PEOPLE will win and we are on our way to taking back our country and when WE THE PEOPLE have succeeded in that WE THE PEOPLE will disassemble all of these bogus money laundering criminal world organizations and their existance will be null and void and the world will have to step up and take care of their own people and countries and America will be America once again.

    Papoose–isn’t it disgusting that our own military said that Franklin Graham offended them with his statement that islam is evil and the way to the house of our Lord is through Jesus Christ.
    And our National Day of Prayer is given to these unamerican fakes that are doing everything in their power to destroy America for their own takeover of our country. I say Franklin Graham hit the nail on the head with his approach of Islam and if his father Rev. Billy Graham were younger and healthier he would have said it as well. Rev. Graham ministered to all of our Presidents throughout his lifetime and he was always the one that our presidents turned to in time of Americas needs.

      heather, they are proving to be everything we suspected…

      fast forward 20 years, who will be here to defend them?

      We have 5 living Presidents, a current Secretary of State as well as a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court who are complicit in the coup d’etat of our Country, its Traditions, its Treasury, its Terrain and it’s alpha-omega, the Constitution of the United States of America. All in real time.

      Islam is a state, not a religion. It is unAmerican. They have no right to impose or demand anything of us…not one iota. It is a Dark Ages government that is bent on world domination. There would be no Muslim, had there not been a Jew or a Christian. Who do they think they are fooling?

      December 21, 2012 would be God’s greatest gift to Humanity, if true. I would walk right toward it seeking grace.

      • 14 Dora April 24, 2010 at 11:28 am

        Heather – do you know if any of the participants in the National Day of Prayer have changed their minds about attending?

        I would hope that any Catholic priests or Bishops, as well as Protestant Ministers or Orthodox Jews who were scheduled to attend, would have taken offense at the treatment of Franklin Graham and cancelled out.

  10. 15 Papoose April 24, 2010 at 9:09 am

    OT but not.

    Good place to catch up on sneaky weekend snooze in a snarky kind of way.

    Bombshells galore. Amusing Headlines. Humorous snacks for the downtrodden…

  11. 16 heather April 24, 2010 at 9:13 am

    I hope obama is peeing in his pants over the forth coming bill! Az has proven with this ballot bill that America will no longer stand still for criminal activities in our govt.

    And obama cannot be grandfathered in!! This is so great and NOW, WE THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN!


  12. 17 Papoose April 24, 2010 at 10:09 am

    Just wondering, who put Bertha Lewis in charge of speaking for the federal government?

    I missed that election.

    Sedition personified.

  13. 18 Quantum Leap April 24, 2010 at 10:14 am

    Thanks to Gov Janet Brewer for doing her job. The laws are to protect the citizens. There is no law protecting criminals and people who sneak into this country are breaking the law and are criminals. Alas, someone is trying to protect the citizens for a change. Imagine the cost to AZ for all the illegal aliens? They are not immigrants, not by a long shot. Immigrants go through the correct channels and GET THEIR PAPERS. So that makes oblowhard a criminal too because he HAS NO PAPERS and he snuck in here on a student visa. Well his visa ran out long ago. So he took his queer ass and married a funky woman who resembles a man so he oould stay. FREAK. I wonder if bawney fwank gave oblowhard his call-boy contacts. Bawney fwank used the whitehouse as a brothel for his excursions. They all do it. Paying for sex is illegal too. Bawney can’t count the change in his pocket and he is the head of the financial committee? So how are criminals who run this country going to uphold the law? Not. They have no interest in doing this. They just “want the perks”.

  14. 19 JJ April 24, 2010 at 10:15 am

    I sincerely wish the governor had said. “My duty is for the safety and welfare of my state Arizona and its ‘legal’ citizens…….illegal Mexicans are the concern of the Mexican government”

    Too crude??

  15. 22 JJ April 24, 2010 at 10:26 am

    One more thing……Illegals, don’t come to my country fighting for civil rights…..try that in your own country.

    • 23 Renee April 24, 2010 at 2:43 pm

      Exactly, and as far as Islam and rights here in our country ?
      Maybe when we are allowed into Mecca- maybe ? Be fair says Biden…ok..start there Joe…

  16. 24 Papoose April 24, 2010 at 10:39 am

    Its a pretty sad state of affairs when regulations and bills have to be debated and implemented in order to prosecute crime.

    The laws are already on the books. Is “illegal” now a newspeak euphemism?

    Barky needs to impeached based on his statements alone. Flip-flops are are bald-face lies and deceit. Back in 2008 there was a list of 60 lies Obama told. Now there are volumes. Lying is Fraud.

    Its a crying shame.

    Undocumented? Then you are in with the “in crowd”.

    Loot and riot? Then you are just standing up to your right of entitlement.

    Since when did the USA become your doormat? Where does it say the all people of the world have American Constitutional rights but Americans do not?

    Barky said to Arizona: its not fair. This guy needs to be deposed, tried and exiled. No coinkydink Mo was in Mexico last week speaking as an American official on our national policy… There ought to be a law. And, even if there is, so what. Shut up and sit down. Your wages are garnered, lawful Americans.

  17. 25 heather April 24, 2010 at 11:09 am

    obamas little rant in the rose garden where he says he will monitor az on a federal level-only means 1 thing to me—he knows that the states are taking their 10 amendment against him and the fed govt and that is ticking him off to the point where he will start his threats to the officials in az and maybe even mccain!

    now he also knows that we are fed up with him and his tyrannical ways of ruling the people—( lol )and that we will stand for no more.

    this az immigration bill doesnt take effect for 90 days and that gives him too much time to make things up to stop it.

  18. 26 heather April 24, 2010 at 11:12 am

    QL—Ditto–lol-yes is a gay and yes he married mo for his ticket into the US–but does he get legal status when he married her?

    I wonder.

    • 27 terminu April 24, 2010 at 6:43 pm

      heather: he had to have still filed naturalization papers to gain US citizenship via Michelle, which he never did. He was adopted by some Crow indians as an adult…maybe that suffices, however it does not make him a natural born citizen and it does not erase his British citizenship, which he still has.

  19. 28 Papoose April 24, 2010 at 11:45 am

    Ban me, if you must.
    Gay bashing is inhumane. Not being accusatory, here. Just want to share a heart-felt sentiment. I am tempted not to submit this comment. But, I must. When I hear the word gay, I am filled with compassion. People come in 32 flavors. Its all good. 🙂

    Imagine how I feel looking all worn out and tired from work and I see the illegals at the grocery store filling thier baskets to the brim and getting into their fancy new cars that they paid cash for working under the table and they get housing assistance and food stamps and free medical while I agonize over the combined 40% they take from my pay. When I started working at 15, they took a measley total of 12% out of my check. Can anyone hear us? Can anyone see us? Can anyone stick up for us who works in government? The tax money is all spent before they get it. And to boot, none of the crooks running this gov pay taxes. This is downright unfair and someone needs to stick up for us. Oh the southern poverty law center has a hit list and people who complain about high taxes are on it as well as constutionalists etc. I’m serious about getting Mr West to run for president. It’s insurance. It’s our best bet. He strikes me as someone who won’t change into a crook once in office. Imagine him as president in his dressed blues with all his medals. We can be proud then.
    Imagine the coke and sex parties they have at the whitehouse? Bet pillousy has given an oral boner to oblowhard. It’s one big happy crooked family. Oh and Mrs oblowhard is not mean for no reason. Bet you she is abused by the pinhead called her husband.

  21. 31 Renee April 24, 2010 at 2:46 pm

    Forgot, Great post Kate. That hop in Az ? …bet it took alot of work to get it all done. Thanks to all of those involved. We all salute you ! Someone has to follow United States laws right ?

  22. 32 heather April 24, 2010 at 3:01 pm

    papoose-I didn’t mean to offend anyone with the word gay–sorry if I did.

    Dora–No I haven’t seen that anywhere as of yet. If I do I will post it here for you.

    QL-I know exactly what you mean–anyone who makes over a certain amount will be killed with taxes–even though HE is on tape millions of times saying anyone making under 250k will not see their taxes go up NOT EVEN 1 DIME!!! I was at one time in that same tax bracket as you-40-45%–but since he and Hillary destroyed my industry, I suppose those days for me are gone forever. The only ones who will make that money will be them and THEY WILL NOT BE TAXED!

  23. 33 heather April 24, 2010 at 3:36 pm

    Dora-I checked the army times and don’t see anything about F Graham–I will keep searching for you.

    For nations living the good life, the party’s over, IMF says

    Howard Schneider
    Washington Post
    April 24, 2010

    In the lingo of the International Monetary Fund, the future of the world hinges on “rebalancing and consolidation,” antiseptic words that would not seem to raise a fuss.

    Who doesn’t want more balance in their life?

    But the translation is a bit ruder, something on the order of: “Suck it up. The party’s over.”

    To keep the global economy on track, people in the United States and the rest of the developed world need to work longer before retiring, pay higher taxes and expect less from government. And the cheap imports lining the shelves of mega-chains such as Wal-Mart and Target? They need to be more expensive.

    That’s the practical meaning of a series of policy papers and statements issued in recent days by IMF officials, who have a long history of stabilizing economies and solving global financial problems, as they plot a course to keep the world economy growing and reduce the risk of another “great recession.”

    That message has been delivered subtly, woven into documents with titles such as “Resolving the Crisis Legacy and Meeting New Challenges to Financial Stability,” and justified by concepts such as “raising retirement age in line with life expectancy,” as IMF economic counselor Olivier Blanchard put it this week.

    Full article
    I swear we the people have to take these people out of their propped up lifestyles–it is we the people that will now live as you once lived! You boys and girls have seen your coup! We are awake and will prevail.

    I have a story too……my sister is deaf…..worked about 20 years of her adult life……she’s 58 now.

    She has to live with her daughter because her monthly check is $425 and if she’s lucky, she gets $200 monthly for food.

    I bite my tongue many times.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if Arizona were to experience a sudden (legal) population increase that would more than offset a decrease in “illegal aliens: (who aren’t citizens anyway).

  27. 37 Yaael April 24, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    I’ve lived in Az for about 30 years we do have laws on the books that would aid in the stoping of the flow coming over our borders but even when they are detained by ICE if they do not have warrants for them all we can do is take them to the border and turn them over to the Mexican authorities then they are released to walk back over the border again. Our former Governor J. Napali. greatly opposed the Sherrif of Maricopa County and has done everything to castrate the power of the Sherrif’s office. But what is worse is that what comes over our borders is not only Mexicans, but Hondurans, Equatorians, even Saudi Arabians. This flood is coming across California,Arizona, New Mexico,and Texas and Mexico feel that these states still belong to Mexico. But this immagrant problem is not limited to the south because they are flooding across our Canadian borders as well. I feel that our National Guards should be placed at both borders and protect us from this onslaught of these persons that are raping out country of the dollars and sending them back to their homes where ther families are left behind.

  28. 38 heather April 24, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    I too feel that the National Guard should be at the borders-north and south. We need to protect and defend our own country from here on out and stop worrying about countries that hate us and want us destroyed.

    Kudos Arizona! No matter how much the self aggrandized, self proclaimed “constitutional scholars” parse over the meaning of “is,” the bottom line is the Consitution is NOT a suicide pact and enumerated powers, Sunpremacy Clause, Commerce, General Welfare, clearly DO NOT authorize the renegade regime in DC to turn it into one.

    We must ALL stand together, relentless, vociferously and refuse. STARVE THE BEAST. Demand your state stop sending taxes to DC that go to fund anti-constituional, anti-sovereign mandates.
