Tom Morrissey Former AZ GOP Chair: Candidiate For Maricopa County Republicans Chairman

Great news just received Tom Morrissey's press release the former AZ GOP Chairman has thrown his hat in the ring as a candidate for Maricopa County Republicans Chairman.
is announcing that he is running for MCRC Chairman in the upcoming election.  “I am running ‘for’ this position and not ‘against’ anyone in our Party, but rather against progressive liberalism.  By now it certainly seems that we have heard enough about the damage done to our great nation by those who are sworn to protect it.  The reason they are in the position to do that damage is because many of us in the ‘loyal opposition’ have not done enough to defeat them.  Yes, they own our universities, newspapers and Hollywood, but they do not own us. It is time that we stand on our principles and make certain that what happened on November 4th 2014 is just the beginning of returning to a nation governed under the US Constitution.  It is paramount that we who make up this party make certain that those whom we have elected keep their promise and stay the course.  I want to be a part of making sure that happens.  I have risen to the highest office in every organization and group in which I have been a member, including the US Marshals Service and the AZ GOP because I know how to lead and I keep my word. I have been told that I am fair and objective without compromising my conservative values. I humbly ask that you vote for me as Chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee.”   

Meet The Man Who Uncovered Videos of Jonathan Gruber On Healthcare Calling Americans Stupid

Meet the Man Who Found the Jonathan Gruber Videos

Jonathan Gruber, once heralded by President Obama and Democrats for his work on Obamacare, in two short weeks has become a lightning rod for criticism and outrage. And the discovery of the videos that have taken over the debate on Obamacare can be traced back to one man who took a financial hit from the Affordable Care Act: a Philadelphia investment adviser who doggedly tried to capture reporters’ attention with his find, at first to no avail. Here’s Howard Kurtz’s take for  “Special Report” on Fox News.

The Amnesty Debacle

In recent days, President Obama has threatened that he will utilize an Executive Order to pass immigration reform and, in so doing, provide amnesty to thousands of illegal immigrants (see Obama to Announce Immigration Executive Actions Friday). This ploy, which is done for no other purpose than to secure votes for the Democratic Party, is in fact an illegal amnesty and violates the U.S. Constitution and separation of powers (see Amnesty Designed to Help Democrats Win Elections at the Expense of the American People and An Illegal Amnesty).
Unfortunately, the Republican Party is not devoid of guilt in this matter as seen in The Senate Immigration Law Hurts All Americans. It appears neither side understands this is not truly not a debate about politics or social justice, but rather a debacle for legal American citizens. The two sides are playing a game of chess to court the vote of the Hispanic community. In the meantime, they are encouraging illegal action, such as the use of undocumented workers by businesses (see Push to Protect Farm Workers). This is done solely for the purpose of winning future elections, and is done at the expense of the legal American worker and companies who do business with integrity! -- And where are the American labor unions now, when they could utilize their organizing abilities and political influence to actually protect their membership and do what is right for America? If either side truly cared and had a backbone, they would come together to close the southern border to protect the American people from terrorists as described in Ebola Strategy Revealed, protect American jobs and reduce the immense strain on Federal, State and Local budgets.
President Obama has made the statement in interviews that no one with a criminal background should be allowed to vote and that illegal immigration hurts workers (see Obama Says Illegal Immigration HURTS ‘Blue-Collar Americans,’ STRAINS Welfare). Apparently, he has conveniently forgotten that people who have crossed the border illegally are criminals that depress American wages. By that reasoning, these persons should have no right to vote and should not be taking American jobs and depressing wages. It is the typical “do as I say, not as I do” hypocrisy that has been used by the President throughout his time in office to support his positions. In Right to Vote Hypocrisy, I discussed that signing up illegal citizens to vote in state and federal elections is perfectly fine in the eyes of the President and big labor bosses, but it is unfair to allow employees of businesses to vote for union representation in a secret ballot election.
Politics aside, the most immediate problem is the fact that Open Borders are Costing American Jobs and Depressing Wages. The continued Misclassification of Workers by companies who refuse to obey our laws and prey upon undocumented workers creates an Under Ground Economy that results in stagnant economic growth, high unemployment (or high under-employment in the form of more part time jobs rather than full time jobs), and a reduction in wage growth. Stories are rampant across the country about companies who do business legitimately and with integrity that are losing business to companies who hire illegals and pay them under the table. This creates The Shadow Economy that an honest business can only compete against by reducing wages, hours and benefits. This situation is accentuated by Obamacare (see Buyers Remorse Over Obamacare) and its high costs which force businesses to move towards part-time employees in order to remain competitive.
It is time for all Americans to wake up and demand that politicians on both sides of the aisle stand up to President Obama’s Rule by Fiat mentality. It is time to realize the hypocritical stance this President takes in his endeavor to fulfill his agenda of converting America to socialism. It is apparent from the current state of the American economy, high budget deficits, high welfare/entitlement rolls, high unemployment/under employment, nationalized education and the cornerstone of control - nationalized healthcare, that the President’s O-Cloward-Piven Strategy Is Working. The Republican Party, with its new majority, must begin Vetting Obama’s Political Tactics and realize He Is What He Despises. It is time they understand Most Voters Still Veto Obama's Immigration Plan, and go on the offensive to defeat the President’s amnesty debacle and incorporate the strategies embodied in Restoring America’s Prosperity!

President Obama to Announce Immigration Overhaul

U.S. President Barack Obama is set to announce a plan to overhaul immigration policy on Thursday night. Obama's plan (NYT) is anticipated to protect four million undocumented immigrants from deportation for five years and will allow those with no criminal record to work legally. Another one million will be protected from deportation through the expansion of an existing program that protects immigrants who came to the United States as children. The Obama administration is resorting to executive action (WaPo) to make what will be the most sweeping change to immigration policy in years. 
"It has been the immigration system’s retreat from sanity, of course, that made Mr. Obama’s new plan necessary. Years were wasted, and countless families broken, while Mr. Obama clung to a futile strategy of luring Republicans toward a legislative deal. He has been his own worst enemy—over the years he stressed his executive impotence, telling advocates that he could not change the system on his own. This may have suited his legislative strategy, but it was not true," writes the New York Times.
"If the president announces executive amnesty, the new Senate majority leader who takes over in January should announce that the 114th Congress will not confirm a single nominee—executive or judicial—outside of vital national security positions, so long as the illegal amnesty persists," writes Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) in Politico.

"The partisan battle is about to begin—or, rather, begin again. Nothing can prevent that from happening. But what can and should be challenged is the notion that Obama is the radical here. In terms of how the United States treats immigrants, as opposed to what is on the statute books, he’s the one defending the traditional way of doing things," writes John Cassidy in the New Yorker

Congress What’Cha Gonna Do? When POTUS Grants Amnesty

Congress, Congress what’cha gonna do Obama’s coming after you?
Today is the day Obama has said he’s going to grant amnesty to over five million illegal’s in the US.

Obama will throw the gauntlet down to Republicans if and when he signs an executive order granting amnesty, unless Republicans do a Hail Mary before the speech and Obama puts the EO on hold.

Based on Republicans past performance they will wring their hands, go on national programs decrying the action and make threats. Remember the big brouhaha over his executive over reach, Speaker Boehner was going to file a lawsuit, he’s on his third attorney and the lawsuit still hasn’t been filed. All talk no action, big hat no cattle.

President Barack Obama’s Thursday primetime address on his executive actions on immigration from Las Vegas. Networks refuse to air the speech. The White House is exasperated with the major broadcast networks ABC, CBS and NBC will not empty their regular programming and will be skipping out on President Barack Obama’s speech.

Throw Al Sharpton's Ass In Jail: He Owes $4.5 Million In Back Taxes

Why isn't Sharpton being treated like any other citizen that owes back taxes? Is it because he's friends with politically connected is D.C.? Is it because it might seem racist? WHY? hasn't his wages been garnished? WHY? Hasn't the assets of his business been auctioned off WHY? Hasn't his house been seized? 
CNN: Al Sharpton and his for-profit business owe more than $4.5 million in current state and federal taxes, according to a New York Times report out Tuesday.
His tax liabilities come despite making a hefty salary, and he and his nonprofit advocacy organization, National Action Network, have been missing payments to hotels, landlords and travel agencies, the report says.
Sharpton has been a regular face in New York and Washington political circles. The report points out that President Barack Obama has raised money for Sharpton's group, and that Sharpton attended the recent announcement that Loretta Lynch would be the White House's pick to be the next Attorney General.
Sharpton has said he's paying back the money, thanks in part to help from more donations to his organization. He said he also lent money to the group, and didn't take a salary at times.

"You can say I'm not a great administrator," he told the paper. "You can't say that I'm not committed."
