The Arizona Project Documentary

August 23, 2011

During July, 2011, a small group of people from North Carolina Tea Party groups traveled to Arizona to make a film about the illegal alien problem on our border with Mexico. Sheriff Larry Dever of Cochise County lead them on their investigation and showed them the territory.

The film crew was sponsored and led by Tea Party Patriots, Mark Hager of the Yadkin Valley Tea Party,Renee Griffith and Mike Prince, also coordinators went on this trip, and funded by donations from Tea Party Patriots and local Tea Party groups across North Carolina ― including and especially Moore Tea Citizens. Thanks go to everyone who donated to the project.

The goal of the Arizona Project is to show that the truth is the exact opposite of the Obama Administration’s very false claims that “the border has never been safer than it is now.” The group was escorted by Sheriff’s Department Deputies as they interviewed and filmed American citizens who live and work near the border. The group went out at night to patrol the isolated areas used by the smugglers and illegals to sneak into this country. They collected factual information and documentary footage to demonstrate the nature and extent of the border problems in Arizona. This film will show you real information about the violence on the border.


Early Warning?

July 3, 2010

Have you heard about Maywood, California, near Los Angeles.   Here is an interesting read about that community, titled Welcome to Maywood, Mexico by Roger Hedgecock on 6/25/2010 at Human Events.

Boasting a population that is 97% Hispanic, more than half foreign born, and 40% illegal, the Los Angeles County, Calif., incorporated city of Maywood has achieved the Reconquista goal. It is now as lawless and chaotic as any place in Mexico. Maywood is a warning to every city and town in America.

This story has been building for many years.  Here is a CNN report from 2006 showing the Mexican flag being flown over the United State Post Office in Maywood.

Immigration Tunes

Very interesting point:

AZ GOP Chr Randy Pullen Speaks out:  Sound Strike Rings Hollow

As various artists, musicians and entertainers jump on the boycott bandwagon to protest Arizona’s new immigration law, Arizona Republican Party Chairman Randy Pullen questioned the motives of an industry who also suffers from those who ignore the laws of the land.

“So often we hear celebrities weigh in on political issues of which they lack a fundamental understanding of the issue,” said Chairman Pullen.  “While they are certainly entitled to express their opinion, I would expect that they would at least have one that is consistent.  Musicians and artists justifiably complain about copyright infringement and those who willfully ignore the law when it comes to stealing intellectual property.  Is it beyond reason to expect citizens and foreign visitors to abide by federal law when it comes to immigration policy?”

According to various news reports, a group of entertainers have joined together to boycott Arizona in protest of SB 1070.  Whether or not the artists actually had scheduled shows in Arizona remains unclear and unreported.

“It’s surprising that these people are so out of touch with the overwhelming numbers of Americans that support the bill,” continued the Chairman.  “With such high-profile acts such as the Jesus Chainsaw Massacre, Los Faggots and Anti-Flag, I’ll be surprised if all our concert halls and entertainment venues don’t immediately close their doors.

“I would argue that our situation is similar to having someone sneak into their concert without a ticket,” said the Chairman.  “I’m curious if these artists sing a different tune when it comes to security at their shows.  Nowadays, concert security search people more thoroughly than Border Patrol.  Seems a bit hypocritical to me.

“I respect their right to oppose the federal law that will now be enforced in Arizona,” said Pullen.  “But with nearly two dozen of other states considering implementing the measure, where they are going to play?  Canceling non-existent shows in Arizona is one thing, but backing out of real gigs?  Now that would be sending a message to the fans who support your livelihood.”

Stark Arrogance

This is very disturbing, watch how arrogant this elected representative, Congressman Pete Stark,  is and how he ridicules those in attendance of this townhall.

Is Arizona a Hostage State?

June 21, 2010

Please listen to this video as Jon Kyl,  US Senator from Arizona, explains his conversation with the President, that the border will not be secured until  comprehensive immigration reform is passed.

Listen closely at 3:21

The problem is, if we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform.  In other words, they are holding it hostage.

Does that sound like Arizona and the rest of the nation is being held hostage and the ransom is amnesty?

Are other states hostages as well?

Well, the other night, when I watched the President speak from the Oval Office, I heard a political speech about cap n trade, not a speech about a tragedy and crisis in the gulf.  Is that why the Coast Guard demanded the boats with skimmers to stop because there weren’t enough life jackets on board?  Is the gulf being held hostage also? until cap n trade is passed?

What is next?  A hostage situation coming soon to your area of the country.

Which One: Enforce the Law or Turn Off the Power?

May 18, 2010

This was posted on Hot Air this afternoon….who do you think will back down?

The Los Angeles City Council voted to boycott the state of Arizona over its new immigration-enforcement law, and now the Arizona Corporation Commission has responded.  Gary Pierce, one of the commissioners chosen in state-wide elections to the utility regulation panel, notes that Los Angeles gets about 25% of its power from Arizona producers.  If the City of Angels really wants a boycott, Pierce offers his services to help, as he explains in a letter to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and copied to Hot Air:

Dear Mayor Villaraigosa,

I was dismayed to learn that the Los Angeles City Council voted to boycott Arizona and Arizona-based companies — a vote you strongly supported — to show opposition to SB 1070 (Support our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act).

You explained your support of the boycott as follows: “While we recognize that as neighbors, we share resources and ties with the State of Arizona that may be difficult to sever, our goal is not to hurt the local economy of Los Angeles, but to impact the economy of Arizona.  Our intent is to use our dollars — or the withholding of our dollars — to send a message.” (emphasis added)

I received your message; please receive mine.  As a state-wide elected member of the Arizona Corporation Commission overseeing Arizona’s electric and water utilities, I too am keenly aware of the “resources and ties” we share with the City of Los Angeles. In fact, approximately twenty-five percent of the electricity consumed in Los Angeles is generated by power plants in Arizona.

If an economic boycott is truly what you desire, I will be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements so Los Angeles no longer receives any power from Arizona-based generation. I am confident that Arizona’s utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands. If, however, you find that the City Council lacks the strength of its convictions to turn off the lights in Los Angeles and boycott Arizona power, please reconsider the wisdom of attempting to harm Arizona’s economy.

People of goodwill can disagree over the merits of SB 1070. A state-wide economic boycott of Arizona is not a message sent in goodwill.


Commissioner Gary Pierce

A scan of the letter can be downloaded here. I wonder what Commissioner Pierce has to say about Councilman Ed Reyes’ lack of understanding of California’s own penal code? Maybe the AZCC could buy a copy for Reyes, although it might be difficult to read during the blackout in Los Angeles.

Contrasting Views on Immigration

May 12, 2010

This was posted at the Arizona Capitol Times last week–2 candidates–2 different views on immigration.

Let’s see, McCain:  secure the borders, path to citizenship, temporary worker program

And JD:  Not a political problem but a national security threat and an invasion
