Welcome to the American Revolution II
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist...

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer for PRESIDENT

PHOENIX -- Arizona Governor Jan Brewer demanded Friday that a reference to the state’s new immigration law be removed from a U.S. government report to the United Nations’ human rights commissioner. http://www.azgovernor.gov/dms/upload/PR_082710_LetterSecretaryClinton.pdf
The U.S. State Department included President Barack Obama's Justice Department legal challenge to the law on a list of accomplishments that show the federal government is protecting human rights.
In her memorandum to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,
Brewer stated that it was "downright offensive” that a state law would be included in the report, which was drafted as part of a UN review of human rights in all member nations every four years. “The idea of our own American government submitting the duly enacted laws of a state of the United States to ‘review’ by the United Nations is internationalism run amok and unconstitutional,” Brewer wrote. The Obama Administration made public its first-ever report to the United Nations Human Rights Council detailing the condition of human rights in America and subjecting the nation to criticism from countries like Iran, Cuba, China and others. According to the report, the United States violates human rights because of high unemployment rates, hate crimes, poverty, poor housing, lack of access to health care, and discriminatory hiring practices affecting Blacks, Latinos, Muslims, South Asians, Native Americans, and homosexuals. The report also discusses the rate of sexual assault in U.S. prisons and the detention of suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay. "It is a disgrace when this President denigrates his own country to curry favor with the despots and thugs at the United Nations. Obviously, President Obama sees America and a global villain," said former intelligence officer and police detective Sid Franes. "When the United Nations first approached U.S. officials about 'human rights inspections," the Bush administration refused to allow any infringement on national sovereignty. Of course, we had Ambassador John Bolton representing us in that corrupt institution and the liberals hated Bolton because he stood up to the UN establishment," he added. The report discusses Obama’s new healthcare and financial industry reforms, and the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, which gives women the right to sue employers if they are paid less than men are. Obama also announced his commitment to repeal the military’s so-called “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. The report also discusses new regulations that increase accessibility for people with disabilities. The report says that it welcomes “observations and recommendations” from concerned members of the U.N. Human Rights Council, which includes countries such as North Korea, Saudi Arabia and Libya. President Obama is hoping these foreign nations “can help us on the road to a more perfect union.” The administration went on to say that “Although we have made great strides, work remains to meet our goal of ensuring equality before the law for all.”
What the Human Rights report did not mention were incidents of physical violence perpetrated against Tea Party participants. It also failed to mention voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party and the questionable activities of ACORN.

Brewer Pushes Back Against Human Rights Report

Already the front-runner in the Arizona gubernatorial race, Gov. Jan Brewer continued to stake out her anti-Obama administration position on immigration Friday with a sternly-worded letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Brewer’s beef was with a report to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. As part of a 29-page summary of the state of human rights in the U.S., the report mentions concerns over Arizona’s disputed SB 1070 immigration law:

A recent Arizona law, S.B. 1070, has generated significant attention and debate at home and around the world. The issue is being addressed in a court action that argues that the federal government has the authority to set and enforce immigration law. That action is ongoing; parts of the law are currently enjoined.

In her Friday letter to Clinton, Brewer demanded the State Department remove the paragraph in SB 1070, calling the inclusion of the law “downright offensive” because SB 1070 includes provisions for human rights. She also argued the administration should secure the border to prevent high death rates of border crossers.

As Brewer moves closer to the gubernatorial election in November, her tough stance on immigration will make her hard to beat, experts told the Associated Press this weekend. Her opponent, Democrat Terry Goddard, must combat Brewer’s growing notoriety and newfound popularity. Brewer took over as governor after Gov. Janet Napolitano (D) left to join the Obama administration, but saw a boost in her approval ratings after she signed SB 1070.

An Aug. 25 poll put Brewer’s approval rating among Arizona voters above Obama’s. While 65 percent of Arizonans said they approved of Brewer, only 39 percent approved of Obama.
