AZ`s Prop 200
To Be Implemented Immediately! [Bryanna
I wasn`t sweating it! Ok, maybe just a little bit.
In November 2004, 56% of Arizona voters supported voted in favor of
Prop 200. On November 30th,
David C. Bury, a federal judge with the Third
Circuit, issued a temporary restraining order against
the implementation of Prop 200.
Today, Judge Bury lifted the TRO. According to
CBS News in Phoenix KPHO, the Governor was prepared
for this decision.
“`We have done a
lot of work to prepare for this day, and we are ready to
go,` said Governor Napolitano. `I asked state agencies
to fully comply with Proposition 200 and I have now
ordered agencies to perform additional, random checks to
make sure we are doing it right.`”
Governor Napolitano was an outspoken opponent of Prop 200.
Then again, I am sure we have not heard the last of this…
For now, good job Judge Bury!

comments on Bush`s dim-witted pro-immigration
remarks at his press conference earlier this week
reminded me that the situation was masterfully
summarized by Stephen Steinlight in his generally
presentation last June. He called the Bush
sham to amnesty between 10 to 14 million illegal aliens
by turning them into members of a
permanent legal underclass, a conception that is an
affront to the deepest ideals of American political and
social culture from the Founders on…If enacted, Bush`s
scheme would transform the United States from what it is
today—the best approximation the modern world has known
of the democratic ideal represented by the
Athens of Pericles— into
hierarchical state with rigid social distinctions
carried on the backs of a
class of helots."
What more needs to be said?
Three weeks ago, Bernard Kerik was a rising star basking in the glory
of his coveted cabinet nomination.
Today, he announced his resignation as CEO of Giuliani Partners, the
investment business he founded with former New York City
mayor Rudy Giuliani.
According to an AP story carried by ABC news online,
Apologetic Kerik Quits Giuliani`s Firm [12/21/04],
Kerik resigned his
position to pursue “other business opportunities.”
At the end of this article, almost as an after thought, one of Kerik`s
previous “business opportunities” was mentioned.
Partners has advised business and government agencies on
security, leadership and other issues. The consulting
firm advised Trinidad in its battle against a rise in
kidnappings and murders and was paid $4.3 million by
Mexico City officials for advice on reducing crime
Potential conflicts of interest would have been analyzed during Senate
confirmation. A multi-million dollar client of Kerik`s
was none other than Mexico City.

Could Bush be
attempting to pack his second term government (and the
federal courts) with those who would support and protect
his amnesty plan?
Given the choice,
