Russell Pearce's "Anchor Baby" Bills Pulled from Agenda, but Don't Get Your Hopes Up

Russell_Pearce_American_Pastorela.jpg
Don't kid yourselves. Pearce's anti-anchor-baby bills are alive and kickin'

The bigoted bills state Senate president Russell Pearce has been pushing to undermine the birthright citizenship provision of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution -- SB 1308 and 1309 -- have been pulled from the agenda for the Senate Appropriations Committee, for now.

As you'll recall, these bills were before the Senate Judiciary Committee on February 7, but Chairman Ron Gould held the bills because he didn't have the votes to get them out with a do-pass recommendation.

Pearce reassigned them to the Appropriations Committee, where the going's expected to be easier. Yet, as you can see, here, they've been struck from the list of bills to be heard tomorrow, February 15.

Could it be that GOPers in the legislature are feeling the pressure? Are the little kids showing up to speak against the bills at hearings taking their toll? Have local Republinuts been swayed to reason by the ADL's recent condemnation of these attempts to gut the 14th Amendment?

Not a chance, Portnoy. According to liberal stalwart, state Senator Kyrsten Sinema, who sits on both Judiciary and Appropriations and who gave the Republinuts hell in Judiciary on 1308 and 1309 a week ago, the bills have been held until Governor Jan Brewer's pending "jobs" legislation has been addressed.

Brewer just called a special session to deal with her proposals (mostly tax cuts), and this will tie up things for next couple of days.

Sinema texted me the following, even as she was fighting some more insane Rupublinut bills in the Judiciary Committee.

"The Governor asked [Appropriations Chairman Andy] Biggs to hold the bills until next week," she said. "So all the attention is on her `jobs' bill."

Senator Sinema also indicated that Biggs was concerned about scheduling, as a lot of time will be taken up by the governor's proposals. He was concerned there wouldn't be enough time for a lengthy debate on the 14th Amendment.

She also texted that, "Appropriations gets an extra week to hear bills, so it's no biggie to delay a week."

And, most disappointingly, Sinema stated that the Republicans "have the votes to pass it out of Appropriations."

So the battle has just been put on pause. With Pearce as Senate president, it's unlikely SB 1308 and 1309 will be dying premature deaths.

All the same, the fight against these bills must be fierce and unforgiving. I know Sinema will continue to do her part.

Those of like mind should remain vigilant. As Republican Senator Adam Driggs proved in Judicary last week with his critique of both SB 1308 and 1309, not all GOPers are in Pearce's camp on this one.

Out on Long Island, we came across some archived footage of Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy ranting about the fictitious scourge of undocumented mothers. This is the first installment in a series of Levy audio clips:

Looks like Mr. Lemons already has a copy of the following release that is being sent worldwide by many of our Associates. This scathing release mentions Josh Pearce's "psycho" glare and calls Governor Brewer a "skank.".

These Associates are not letting up one bit, and they appear to be fully supportive of Stephen Lemons, Chad Snow, Tommy C, and the others.

Let 'er rip:

"To STEPHEN LEMONS (Stephen.Lemons@newtimes.com) , www.PhoenixNewTimes.com , KYRSTEN SINEMA, JAN BREWER's wannabe "lawyer" JOE KANEFIELD (JKanefield@az.gov) and The World Press,

These are opinions based on known facts.

Unbelievable. STEPHEN LEMONS (Stephen.Lemons@newtimes.com) of www.PhoenixNewTimes.com is pulling off a HAT TRICK in the SONORAN DESERT, not usually known for its local hockey prowess. The SCORCHED SANDLANDERS barely have any WATER left, let alone the COLD HARD ICE needed to smash home TEETH-PULVERIZING winning goals. OUCH!

We fully support the jaded and obnoxious loudmouth LEMONS as he brings ARIZONA's lowlife politiicos to long-overdue JUSTICE IN SAND LAND. We urge STEPHEN to keep working with our former opponent KYRSTEN SINEMA to impeach, remove, and prosecute these bums.

Even our CHINESE BUSINESS ASSOCIATES want these losers locked up as we apprise our SHENZHEN friends of AMERICAN CORRUPTION and FINANCIAL TERRORISM that threatens the entire GLOBAL ECONOMY.

STEPHEN, thanks for your current "triple threat" exposure of Arizona's THREE STOOGES - "Grizzly Joe" ARPAIO, the Hillbilly Hick from Springfield, Massachusetts; RUSSELL "1070" PEARCE; and the UGLY DRUNKEN SKANK GOVERNOR JAN "Ruts" BREWER, probably now a "wetbrain" from years of alcohol and drug abuse.

As you know, these boneheads are all CRIMINALLY-COMPLICIT in the looting of the U.S. Treasury and the ongoing cover-up of the WANTAGATE THEFT OF TRILLIONS as described below and in the attached documents. See our website at http://Wantagate.BlogSpot.com for more details.

The MUGSHOT of PEARCE's sicko child-abusing son JOSHUA in www.PhoenixNewTimes.com tells it all - that psychotic glare on JOSH is enough to justify the BANISHMENT OF THE ENTIRE PEARCE PSYCHO FAMILY from our free society.

Keep hammering them with our FREE PRESS that the wannabe dictators ARPAIO, PEARCE, and "BREWSKI" will never take away. Let's have them spending the rest of their sorry days in MARION, LEAVENWORTH, or even GUANTANAMO BAY.

Keep up the great work, STEPHEN LEMONS, now scoring NHL-worthy "Sonoran Hat Tricks" as he parades THREESOMES of SANDLAND's CRIMINALLY-CORRUPT THUGS in front of a VERY IRATE GLOBAL AUDIENCE.

Onward to Victory!

Bill, we just talked I know and my phone is not able to be used for another day to prevent any trace. but I just recently spoke with my contacts. We may have a problem. I just found out about some suspicious activity with the money. we were able to trace back with simple and easy 1st grade tech how much money was moved. at a certain limit depending on the bank, the limit for many banks is ten billion, and with the ammount of banks involved we belive over 100 billion was moved in the last week, we do not have much time.

oh and before I forget can you send me any court files involved with Leo Wanta I want to follow something I picked up on recently.

so in a sum.....we need to act fast, If you give me a target I can have a lot of dirt on them, enough to either evoke a confession or at the least get a persecution cause out of them for a federal court. At the moment I am following all the ties you and everyone else have shown me but I can not find for the life of me the source or the target, if I have that target we can finaly put this corruption." </equityct@yahoo.com></equityct@yahoo.com></equityct@yahoo.com>

I think that birthright citizenship needs to be changed at the federal level. We have already had several amendments to our Constitution so what would be different about this? How is it bigoted to want to stop the scam of illegal aliens giving birth on our soil and gaining instant citizenship for their newborns? Who is it bigoted against since their are illegals in this country from many countries and many different ethnicities? Many if not most countries require that at least on parent be a citizen or legal resident of their country in order for their newbord to acquire instant ctiizenship. Logically that just makes sense. It would be one less magnet drawing illegal aliens to our country.

I am ready to trust anything that comes from Pearce or Pearce (a.k.a. Brewer) without backup and support.

If they have somethings to create jobs, great. But please share the reasons why you believe it will work. It is our state and our future you are betting.

I noted that your stories on the website today are accompanied by pictures of Pearce, Arpaio, Brewer, and Hendershott. This is how the rest of the counry sees us. Old, bitter, angry, ignorant white people. The first goal of the Commerce Authority should be to shut these fools up and change the face of our government.

Wasn't Mr. Lemons just expressing negative about Representative Sinema a couple days ago? What a sourpuss he was then. Now, not so much.

Mr. Lemons is now very complimentary toward Representative Sinema, why the change?

Once again, Senate President Russell Pearce shows us that he is too mentally unstable to lead the AZ Senate.

Not to worry. Pearce will serve the City of Mesa, Maricopa County, and the State of Arizona a lot better when he is wearing his straitjacket and being heavily sedated to get those voices out of his head, just like his buddies Senator Gould, the Flaccid Fool of MCSO, Hendy, Fox, Black, Candy Andy, Aubuchon, Alexander, and Babeu.

If you knew how to think and read and understood punctuation (not to mention spelling), then you'd see why these bills are unconstitutional. This is a minor, minor, minor percentage of the annual birthrate in the U.S. and if instead of whining folks like you would exert some effort working with Congress to fix this problem, all of these ancillary issues would go away.

But everyone knows you don't want it to go away. The last think you want is for this problem to be solved.

I come back after a long, long time and I see the same people arguing. In case any of you are not aware, "USAdefender1" is a seriously mentally-ill Hispanic who hates any Hispanic who has not followed in his footsteps. "USAdefender1" considers the color of people's skin and wouldn't question anyone other than his own kind because he hates his own kind, including himself. But "USAdefender1" would not go as far as to show his own self-hatred so he hates everyone else, calls them "Moron". Do NOT take what he has to say seriously. He is conflicted. Feel sorry for him. ALWAYS, always, always, let him go first so you can keep an eye on this self-hating Hispanic.It's bad enough to have to fight the white Natavist Republicans. We also have to fight the self-hatred of Hispanics who reject their own kind.Sad.

The Chamber of Commerce went on record at the Senate Judiciary Committee, Feb 7, opposing both 1308 and 1309. They admitted that the current boycotts have hurt them and fear more of the same. That is there only concern.

It's not like the Chamber of Commerce gives a damn about the rights of unborn children any more then any other Republican. It's not like they care to stop a whole new category of second class citizens...oops-I meant people denied Human Rights at birth because of the parents choices or bad laws that serve no one.

Gilboy,

Like the MORON you are I would like to bring to your attention that it is the conservatives of this country that champion the non killing of the unborn while you progressives call abortion (murder) a women's right to choose. Your progressive thinking places the fetus being carried by a citizen in the category of a parasite but you place the fetus of an illegal in the category of the “unborn children”.

It's racist like you who continually put people down by classifying them by the color of their skin. You are a despicable individual who uses the innocent of children to further an agenda that no reasonable person of any country would wholeheartedly embrace unless they were a terrorist, anarchist, traitor or a MORON.

Daniel,

I agree with you that Republicans have generally been much more vigilant in protecting the rights of the unborn than progressives. Too bad they stop caring about kids once they're born.

Chadito,

I guess we should take available facts and learn from them. As a country we have encouraged people who can’t properly care for children to have not just one, two or even three but in many cases many more by providing health care, food, housing, education and even tax incentives.

I wonder if fewer children would be brought into poverty in this country if we did not provide such lavish benefits (entitlements) and instead fostered an environment where a parent should provide for their family and encourage personal responsibility.

This ain't what I hear. I hear the pressure from the business community, including the chambers of commerce and the tourism industry, combined with legislators actually reading the historical record of the 14th Amendment and legal analyses including this from the Washington Times (http://www.washingtontimes.com... is convincing Senators that this is a P.O.S. bill that will only cost the taxpayers more money that we don't have.

Agreed. Sinema's explanation regarding the special session makes sense to me. I don't think the outcry's been so great that the Republinutbags are ready to give it up. But I don't think it's a done deal either. Driggs' performance last week gave me some hope.
