Yep, AZ’s new immigration law is a sham and a scam. And a dream come true for unscrupulous employers and rapists.

Luis Heredia had a great piece up at HuffPo the other day. It’s a sham because the Republicans who drafted the bill, SB1070, know it does nothing to protect Arizona. They know it doesn’t help secure the border. And they know it makes law enforcement’s job even harder. Local police who are busy solving crimes […]

Jeff Flake?

I’d like to know why Jeff Flake has been largely MIA on this immigration law, on account of how I hear he’s “good on immigration” all the time, and conservatives are crowing about the supposed “rift” between Grijalva and Giffords on the law and proposed boycotts. Why hasn’t Flake issued a resounding denunciation of the […]

This is so venally stupid I can’t even snark about it.

Believe me, a lot of snark went through my mind. But this dude stands a good chance of winning the gubernatorial race in AL with this kind of phony populist bullpucky. The sad thing is that real people are threatened when none-too-bright politicians engage in divisive grandstanding: Why does Alabama give the test in languages […]

Tuesday Energy Post: HuffPo’s Matt Wasson delivers smackdown to misleading WaPo oped

Specifically, he takes on the first of oil shill Robert Bryce’s “Five myths about green energy”.

Meghan McCain walks and quacks like a sock puppet. (Yeah, it’s a mixed metaphor, sue me.)

I see that Meghan McCain strongly denounced Arizona’s harsh new immigration law. Meghan – who attended rallies hosted by the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform – says the new law is “seriously flawed” and “essentially a license to pull someone over for being Hispanic.” “I believe it gives the state police a license to discriminate, […]

Pearce lied about cutting a deal with the Chamber on the immigration bill.

Zelph has been following and exposing the deceit of Republican Legislators and business leaders in the crafting of SB 1070. He left this comment on my post about it the other day: See the April 23rd Arizona Capital Times for the full story of how Pearce neutralized the AZ Chamber, but here’s the short version: […]

Another influential organization that NEVER speaks out against family-destroying bigotry.

Center for Arizona Policy. Considered the most powerful social conservative lobby in Arizona, this national astroturf folksy little local grassroots group of Christians pushes policies it considers crucial to promoting strong families: Life – The Center for Arizona Policy is dedicated to the protection of human life from the time of conception to the end […]
