On this Memorial Day, All Patriots Media would like to thank all of those who are now, or have served, in the US Armed forces for their service. To the families of those who have fallen, please know that everyone at All Patriots Media remembers their service, and will do what we can to ensure their memory is forever preserved.

I couldn’t agree more.

The Lawful Citizens and SB 1070

When the Los Angeles City Council decided to boycott Arizona because of SB 1070, also known as the Arizona Immigration Law, it did not sit well with miillons of people across the country, and with many here in Los Angeles.

It didn’t sit well that the Council was taking their eye off the prize, which should be making LA a better place to live. It should be about the Council dealing with gangs. It should be about the Council fixing the sidewalks, and working towards infrastructure needs for the next 50 years. It should be about the Council not overspending, not allowing others to overspend and not allowing the State of California to abuse the people of LA in regards to the state’s embarrassing spending habits, and poor mismanagement of funds.

In boycotting Arizona, the LA City Council stopped making it about all the people of Los Angeles, and started making it about race. As if illegal immigration was ever about race.

The racist argument is used by the lesser of men. Those without the capacity to engage in conversation, and those without the desire to recognize the reality. The racist argument is a red herring by political hacks like LA City Council members Ed Reyes, Janice Hahn and Dennis Zine. By San Francisco Mayor Gaving Newsome, and Oakland Vice-Mayor Ignacio De La Fuente. By MSNBC, and the Daily Kos.

Americans oppose illegal invaders. We never asked, and never cared about their color, their sex, religion, their ethnicity, which baseball team they liked, if they enjoy long walks on the beach or what their favorite ice cream flavor is. Americans stop at the word illegal. For the lawful citizen, there is nothing more to talk about.

The racist argument is used by those who want to claim exploitation. Yet, we know that the exploiting is done when you allow illegals in the country, using them as cheap labor. Fine the employers who do so, is what the lawful citizens say. Stop the exploitation of other human beings, is what the lawful citizens say. The Statists (of all colors, creeds and sexes) want the open border, and the continued exploitation of people. The lawful citizens care far more for people.

The racist argument is used by those who want to claim that California is a part of Mexico, illegally obtained and invaded. Yet, we know that California is part of the United States, and will remain so. We know that every conversation about illegality of California is a diversion to let more illegals across the border; a human invasion to bring about Cloward-Piven strategies, and to increase the votes for Statists. Every lawful citizen knows that those who favor, engage in and support the activities of illegals are working against the interests of the United States. The lawful citizens care far more for America, and its proven way of life.

The racist argument will be used in Los Angeles, when we gather to protest the LA City Council for boycotting Arizona, in which they have taken away $7.7 million in contracts from Arizona business owners and employees. Yet, we know that business owners and employees don’t write laws and pass laws. They work hard, provide for their families, enrich their communities and pay their taxes. Every lawful citizen knows that these boycotts, in LA and around the country, are random, indiscriminate, violent attacks against the lawful citizens by the political hack class. The politicians who boycott do not care about people who wish to live their lives in peace. Rather, they see a chance to exploit the workers and the employers. Using them as pawns, so they can gain political points with their constituencies, hundreds and possibly thousands of miles away. The politicians will then raise money for their future campaigns by exploiting these employers and employees. The lawful citizens care far more for the lawful citizens of Arizona, and will not be intimidated by the politically correct political class.

Protest the LA City Council. Protest in your own city if they have boycotted Arizona. You are not alone. The lawful citizens of the United States of America are with you.

Buy Arizona! Weekend

Come to the Buy Arizona! Weekend – June 4th to June 6th

Soon after Arizona passed SB 1070, a measure that forces law enforcement to enforce the law and ask about immigration status during lawful police activities, politicos from around the country, sensing an opportunity to raise campaign funds, pushed to attack Arizona.  In a cowardly manner, they did not go after law makers for crafting the legislation, nor did they go after the Governor, Jan Brewer, for signing the legislation (though some people did not treat her kindly, with effigies made of her, nor were the police treaded kindly, with water bottles and garbage thrown at them.)

Rather, the political hack class – Mayor Gavin Newsome (D-SF) and Councilman Ed Reyes (D-Los Angeles) amongst them – decided to go after Arizona business.  Through the use of boycotts, San Francisco and Los Angeles looked for ways to cancel contracts, and place moratoriums against official travel to Arizona.  In Oakland, the town council, led by Vice-Mayor Ignacio De La Fuente, has agreed to boycott Arizona.  A convention of immigration lawyers cancelled their national convention in Scottsdale.  According to estimates, $10 million has already been lost.

$10 Million lost by the employers and the employees of Arizona.  Lost by people who did not write the bill, nor vote for the bill.  Employees and small business owners who are now under violent attack.  The political hack class looks only to line their pockets, and makes decisions that fit their own self-interests, regardless of whom they hurt in the process.  In this case, the men and women who are trying to provide for their families.

When I first heard about the boycotts, I knew that innocent people were under attack by ignorant politicians. I have a daily radio show, that plays in four cities, as well as online.  I knew that tourism would be badly effected by thee boycotts, and that would effect all businesses in time.  So, I created the Buy Arizona! Initiative.  The Buy Arizona! Initiative provides free advertising for Arizona businesses.  Each day, we provide one ad for a business in Arizona, doing a live read in the middle of the show.  Other radio hosts, terrestrial and internet, have joined the Initiative, and we welcome more to do so.

Being a Tea Party organizer, I realized that action is everything.  The people of Arizona appreciate the advertising, but they needed to know that millions of Americans are with them, standing shoulder to shoulder with them while they face this politically motivated, unwarranted onslaught.  Sonja Schmidt, a fellow Tea Party member and commentator for PJTV.com had started a plan of her own. Sonja wanted to organize a weekend that was focused on the people, not rallies.  Focused on supporting business, on having fun, and on creating a weekend that would let people relax, share, engage and get ready for the fight ahead of us. We got to talking, and decided to put our resources together for the common goal.  We have to go to Arizona, and show them our support.  Therefore, we are proud to announce the Buy Arizona! Now Weekend.

From June 4th to June 6th, we encourage everyone to come to Arizona, meet some great people spend some money and have some fun.  We have arranged for a central hotel, have created excursions that people can purchase to Sedona or to go shopping in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area.  We’ve arranged a night of comedy, and a night of relaxation.

There is a rally scheduled for the morning of June 5th, which is being done by the people of Arizona.  We encourage those who want to attend to do so.  However, our objective is simple.  We want to inject dollars into the Arizona economy.  We want to look business owners in the eye, and let them know that we are with them.  We want America to see that when you believe in America, you must support your fellow Americans.  The Buy Arizona! Weekend is America’s way of sending a loud clear message to the political hacks and their politically correct minions.  That message is, Stop Abusing Employees and Small Business Owners.

See you in Arizona!
