Groups Push Radical Socialist Raúl Grijalva as Next Interior Secretary

In 2010 top House Democrat Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) called on businesses to boycott his own state of Arizona.

Rep. Raul Grijalva (R-AZ), a top House Socialist, later defended his calls to boycott his own state.

Now a coalition of 238 environmental, ethnic and others sent a letter to Barack Obama urging him to pick socialist leader Rep. Raúl Grijalva as the next interior secretary.
The Arizona Daily Star reported:

A coalition of 238 environmental, ethnic and other groups sent a letter to President Obama Monday recommending Rep. Raúl Grijalva as the next interior secretary.

Additionally, a petition on urging Obama to appoint Grijalva to the post had 1,474 signatures as of Monday afternoon.

Grijalva, who was considered a leading contender for the post four years ago, when Ken Salazar was appointed, could not be reached for comment.

He is now seen as one of several possible candidates to succeed Salazar, if Salazar steps down, which isn’t definite but is widely expected.

Other possible candidates whose names have been dropped in the media include retiring Rep. Norm Dicks from Washington, former Sen. Byron Dorgan from North Dakota, former Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal and outgoing Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire, all Democrats.

The groups supporting Grijalva include conservation, Hispanic, recreation, animal welfare, religious, labor, youth, business and women’s groups.

    Secretary of the Interior? He should be deported along with all the misfits and enemies of the Republic that are backing him.

    Maxine Waters is now the chair of the Financial committee so this socialist will be a good fit in the new socialist regime no longer worried about facing the voters.

    Clean, oiled and ready.

    Why aren’t we hanging these bastards?

  • bigkahuna

    I agree.. Push him…over a cliff.

  • cavt

    Lost cause here. Anybody our great leader nominates for anything is going to be a worthless radical(at best.) Just wonder how much the public in general is willing to keep putting up with this.

    Maybe it’s not easy to find candidates who actually want to work for a dishonest, unscrupulous self-centered Marxist with a messiah complex and a history of disloyalty to his peeps. At least, not intelligent, rational candidates.

    Oh, I would say for a long long time. After all football, basketball, and Lady Ga Ga. are much more important than guarding our freedoms, or opposing those who would destroy them. Ask a randomly chosen citizen who George Washington was and they will, likely as not, say he played for the San Antonio Spurs.
    All I know is that it is going to be a good time to be a lizard, a caribou or a sage grouse. An oil driller? Not so much.

  • It is so important to have a blog like yours to get this information out there for people to realize what is happening. I linked to you here:

  • As an Arizonan I have to say Rep. Raul Grijalva is an enemy of the people in Arizona. He only represents a very small portion of liberals in Arizona. I have no doubt he would gladly turn his back on the United States too if something doesn’t suit his liberal agenda. Next he will be telling other countries not to do business with the U.S. until all illegal aliens are granted amnesty and we must continue to accept all the new illegals gaining entry into our country. I’m afraid it is going to get alot worse. We aren’t going to get through to Obama supporters until we hit rock bottom hard and they start feeling the pain.

  • Sam Stone

    Annie J, wasn’t this asswhole the same one who called for HIS OWN state to be boycotted over the Arizona illegal alien immigration laws?

  • west1890

    Sam Stone you are 100% correct. He also pushed for a wide swath of land running adjacent to the AZ border with Mexico to be declared a protected federal area and off limits for Border Patrol. Coincidentally the ‘illegals super highway’ that they use to enter the U.S. runs right through it. Yes indeed, Raul is the best Congressman Mexico ever had. No coincidence that he is co-chair of the ‘Congressional Progressive Caucus’- hard core commies- each and every one of them

  • Yes Sam, you are right. When this happened I wrote Rep. Grijalva and let him know his call to boycott his own state made him an enemy of the state and he was hurting the very people he was elected to serve. Unfortunately, he lives in a predominately hispanic and Democrat district so he was re-elected. He fits Obama’s agenda perfectly so don’t be surprised if he is promoted beyond his abilities.

    #11- As a fellow Az resident I agree with you 110%! I don’t know what’s going on here..I mean we have McRhino & this last election that dumb bisexual Israel hating broad gets elected it’s like Az is changing so fast! I mean we always had problems with the immigrants coming in & trying to turn the state blue & of course with Tucson being little Mexico was an issue for me… But I think our problem’s much bigger now with the exodus from California the liberals are coming here & quickly taking things over. They’re hell bent on repeating the same mistakes that made them flee Ca here the idiots. When 2016 rolls around they say we’ll be a blue state & have you seen the tax hikes we’re looking at for 2013? Unreal! It’s very upsetting to me seeing progressivism swoop on in & steal my state away!
