Arizona Republican Governor, Jan Brewer, just signed new immigration law, making it a crime to be an illegal in Arizona. She stated she's implored Obama to "do something!" and has been continously ignored so did what she had to do to protect the people of the state as she was set into office to do. I am writing this discussion forum because she has acted BOLDLY and this is not her first time, and I thought good conservatives would like hearing about a good conservative.
I knew nothing about Jan Brewer, not even recognizing her name when the news broke about this bill. Now I know some to share.
Democrat Janet Napolitano was elected Governor of Arizona; she resigned in January 2009 to become Obama's appointed Secretary of Homeland Security. When she did so, the Arizona Constitution dictates the Secretary of State becomes Governor---Republican Janice Brewer. Who says every single political position isn't important--or perhaps critical--in history?
As Governor just these past 15 months, Brewer has signed laws for stronger gun rights--(conceal carry without a permit and guns okay in bars IF bar owners want it), repealed Napolitano's LGBT benefit costing Arizona $3 million a year, eliminated all or some of the SCHIPS bill, and is pursuing class action against ObamaCare for her state. Now, folks, this IS a conservative. I hope she doesn't disappoint me later (like McCain), but so far so good. She is running in her own right for re-election THIS YEAR. Got an extra $5 or $10--giving encouragement for her conservatism and stand up fearless attitude? Never know where someone may end up---she could run for the Arizona House or Senate with the resume she's building--and then she'd influence every single one of us. For now, just that she's "out there" with these pluses is a plus! The STAND UP, SPEAK UP has begun.
When the immigration bill was signed, there was wild rioting---by the Left, of course. School kids took off from school (truant officer, anyone--or is that too old fashioned today?), illegals and their guilt-ridden friends ("Raise Our Taxes!") stormed the streets. However, guess what the Arizona polling showed? uh huh. The Arizona PEOPLE are in agreement with their Governor.
Much of this stemmed from the fairly recent murder of an Arizona rancher on his own property...still ALLEGED I guess, by an illegal---who Rob Krentz may have even befriended with water at one time. The Krentz family had ranched in the location he was killed at since 1907. Enough is Enough. Sadly, though, the headline around this bill signing, from Fox News no less, included the line "the TRAGIC DEATH"....no, not death...MURDER.
One of the top stories on Google (you do know they are in Obama's pocket, don't you?) on Jan Brewer was a post by ASTROCHICKS. Oh, great. This is their headline: "Has Arizona become the new hate capital of the United States?" followed by, "Jan Brewer has waged war." Aren't we all just getting terminally sick and tired of these people?
Some of Jan Brewer's statements from this week's interviews after signing this bill: "It's an Invasion!" --- "Not going to sit still." ---- and ---- "This is America, after all."
You can sign a petition that you agree with her at www.janbrewer.com
P.S. This IS still America, after all....isn't it?
Keep adding to this...I may be the only one commenting on my own "discussion"....but so the nerd goes in Chipville. :)
Just read that a Rasmussen poll shows 70% of Arizona supports their Governor Brewer!
But, do the liberals EVER give up? Hell, no. Hispanic leaders in the House are urging (or threatening--more later) Obama to BLOCK the Arizona bill, saying that the Federal Government holds the power on immigration enforcement....Obama...Just stand up and say, "My Power Is Clear!".....well, that will be a good extension of his usual mantra, "Let me be clear"......and I'm sure saying Power is enticing to Dear Leader.
The Federal Government Holds THE POWER.....boy, that is really reverberating EVERYWHERE lately, isn't it? Watch for it. I'm watching for Jan Brewer's strength here; hope she can be like William Wallace from Braveheart....and "HOLD"....!
You should like this, though. Obama is more and more displeasing his LEFT.....not as much as we, of course, but who'd believe he isn't liberal enough for them? Ahem. As a sidebar, any aware of the Left's hecklers at Obama's speech to re-elect Barbara Boxer....he even said she MAY LOSE. No? And then Barbara tried to get the Left Audience excited "like the Tea Party People"! She had to use US for their motivation. Oh, it's gettin' good out there, my friends. But, sorry, I digress....back to Arizona from California:
So, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D) from Illinois and Rep. Raul Grijalva (D) from Arizona are the two Hispanic leaders...and here is where what I call "the threat" comes in. The bill HR 4321 is for mass amnesty. Gutierrez especially is pushing Obama to get this amnesty and immigration issue off the ground....and if Obama doesn't manage it, Gutierrez basically says he'll "urge" Hispanics to stay home this November.
"We can stay home" he says, and "You know what? There is a third option. We can refuse to participate."
Well, tell you what. I read that going both ways. LET THEM STAY HOME. That's the whole idea, Luis. And, as far as refusing to participate...this is what is finally happening. The conservatives are refusing to participate! No more free politically correct, liberal, socialist easy-going-get-along APOYO. :)
Obama just came out today, further basically "dissing" state's rights with Arizona's bold move....only Federal Government has "The Power" !
I was waiting for him to say either "JAN BREWER ACTED STUPIDLY".....or "STATE GOVERNMENTS ACT STUPIDLY" .......
