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’🙄, 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.
