How do your AZ House, Senate members measure up?

July 23, 2021

The Arizona Free Enterprise Club has a wealth of information that reflects its pro-growth, limited government vantage point.

It is also known for rating the state Senate and House members, a legislative scorecard many fiscally conservative Republicans await each year. 

Additionally, the organization posts timely articles, follows key legislation and is informative on a wide range of issues. Today’s lead article is titled, “Biden Administration Wants to Silence People They Don’t Agree With.”

Start your day with knowledge. Spend some time on the Arizona Free Enterprise Club’s site.

Matt Salmon still chasing AZ governor dream…when not backing China

July 21, 2021

Though his political time has come and gone, Matt Salmon hasn’t gotten the message. After losing a gubernatorial race to Obama-connected, open-border leftist Janet Napolitano in 2002 and later announcing his retirement from politics, Salmon, a former U.S. Rep. who left congress twice, is once again running for governor. In the intervening years, he’s reportedly earned $336,090 yearly as the chief lobbyist for Arizona State University, notably supporting the Confucius Institute. He was aided in his duties as a fluent Mandarin Chinese speaker. He learned the language in preparation for his 1970’s church mission in Taiwan.

The Chinese Communist Party-linked Confucius Institutes are Beijing-run programs that ostensibly teach Chinese language and culture. Initially, more than 100 institutes simultaneously emerged at universities in the United States, plus Confucius Classrooms at the K-12 level. They’re directed by the Chinese Ministry of Education, employ teachers who are trained in China and teach government-approved versions of history, culture and current events to American students — few of whom have any relevant knowledge of either communism or China, as this disturbing Campus Reform article points out. This brief, but startling video provides an insight into the ignorance flourishing on liberal college campuses:

As of July 9, 2021, there are a total of 41 Confucius Institutes in the United States, down from over 100, as schools abandoned the propaganda programs thanks to pressure from the Trump administration amid growing concerns they have become indoctrination centers. This crucial report in the Washington Examiner reveals President Donald Trump’s proposed rule, “Establishing Requirement for Student and Exchange Visitor Program Certified Schools to Disclose Agreements with Confucius Institutes and Classrooms.” But before the rule made its way to the Federal Register or went into effect, the Biden administration withdrew it on Jan. 26, less than a week after Inauguration Day.

We’re all busy, but should never be too preoccupied to lose awareness of ubiquitous indoctrination programs intended to undermine our constitutional republic and using our younger generation to carry out the scheme.


Slo Joe’s slight problem with numbers

Republicans doing the work of dems?

July 19, 2021

Isn’t this what the left always counts on?

The Epoch Times carries a must-read report titled, “Arizona Senate President: State’s 11 Electors Cannot Be Recalled After Maricopa Audit.” Only four days earlier (July 14) The Washington Times headlined, “Arizona election audit finds discrepancy, Senate president says: ‘Those numbers do not match.’” Despite overwhelming evidence, AZ Senate President Karen Fann appears to be backing down.

This is serious business. The 2020 presidential election results raised questions that required a ballot audit of Maricopa County’s 2.1 million ballots.

The Arizona Senate began the auditing process in January due to widespread reports of fraud and irregularities in Maricopa County. The Board of Supervisors refused to comply with the Arizona Senate until Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Timothy Thomason ordered them to do so on February 26, 2021.

Jack Sellers, Maricopa County GOP chair of Republican dominated Board of Supervisors, now claims the Maricopa County ballot audit is an “alternate reality that has veered out of control.” Sellers is taking his cue from County Recorder Stephen Richer, who duped Republican voters.

Other states, including Georgia, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania, disagreed, and have followed Arizona’s lead after ballot discrepancies were discovered.

Ballot integrity is vital to a constitutional republic. American citizens must have faith in our electoral system and the expectation that our elected officials will take their duties seriously.


Biden’s farcical double standard on immigration

July 18, 2021

Comparing Biden to Paul Revere: Biden comes up short

The tower of Boston’s Old North Church is immortalized for being where Paul Revere’s “One if by land, two if by sea” lantern signal was sent. The phrase is related to Revere’s midnight ride of April 18, 1775, alerting the colonists, preceding the Battles of Lexington and Concord during the American Revolutionary War. When American history was still taught, we learned these facts.

Things have changed dramatically in the intervening years. Today the leftist educrat members of the teacher’s unions are committed not to our history, but rather to instilling divisiveness — dedicated as they are to indoctrinating Critical Race Theory, where one group of Americans are victims and the other are victimizers, based solely on genetic characteristics over which we have no control.

The Biden administration is energized at the prospect of separating us and laying blame.  It’s their red meat. But there is now what at first blush appears to be an impossible to understand component.

Though the dismantling of the wall on our southern border has been prioritized by the democrats who welcome all comers breaching our southern border* from Central America and Mexico, there is a decidedly different approach to Cubans living under communism 90 miles south of Florida. This past week, they have been marching for freedom from the repressive regime that turned the once popular destination country to a dictatorship run by Fidel Castro and his brother Raul for more than six decades. Communist Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel Bermudez is currently in charge.

Alejandro Mayorkas, Biden’s Secretary of Homeland Security, is another slippery Obama administration cohort now reshuffled over to Biden. He helped implement the DACA program and will be responsible for strengthening it, along with other Biden immigration programs. He also has a short memory. Mayorkas’ own family fled Cuba in 1960 after Fidel Castro’s communist takeover of the country. This was his tweet on the topic.

Mayorkas is not all that concerned about our nation’s security as he welcomes uneducated, unvaccinated and often known criminal invaders from Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.  However, his and Biden’s message to Cubans hungering for freedom among increasing domestic turmoil along with food and medical shortages is, “Let me be clear. If you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States.”

Why the different treatment? There’s no mystery involved. Cubans are reliably Republicans. Mexicans and Central Americans most often walk lock-step with the democrats.

Between February and March 2021, after newly installed Joe Biden assumed the presidency, 1,076,242 illegals entered the United States. The numbers have not abated.


Obiden admin. pushes mass amnesty to fortify dem party

July 17, 2021

Federal Judge halts DACA scheme in Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, South Carolina and West Virginia 

Nearly a decade ago, when Barack Obama pushed for DACA for illegal aliens, he claimed, “This is not amnesty, it is not immunity, it is not a pathway to citizenship.” Most Americans knew he was lying through his pearly whites. Now blatantly pulling the strings on the Biden administration, saying Joe is “finishing the job,” of his presidency, VP Kamala Harris is brazenly calling for a “pathway to citizenship” that gives “relief and hope to talented, driven, patriotic young people.”

The charade needs to be exposed for what it is.

In 2018, SRAZ wrote “…most are adults, not “kids,” which reveals the truth about DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients. There is no accurate means of verifying if they were brought into the U.S. as infants by their illegally invading parents or arrived last year after hoisting themselves over the border.” We noted that many of them are grandparents, not babes in arms. One category they surely fit is a large, reliable democrat voting bloc.

At the time, The Washington Examiner exposed the amnesty scheme for what it was. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), still under the spell of John McCain, joined with Jeff Flake and Dick Durbin (D-Ill) on pushing the measure that ultimately failed.

Fast forward to July 16, 2021. A federal judge in Texas on Friday ordered an end to an Obama-era program that prevented the deportations of what cunningly became known as DREAMERs supposedly brought into the United States as children. In 2006, Kris Kobach, constitutional law professor, former Kansas Secretary of State and author of Arizona’s SB 1070, wrote, “The Senate Immigration Bill Rewards Lawbreaking: Why the DREAM Act Is a Nightmare.” Kobach is currently running for Kansas’ Attorney General.

On Friday, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, nominated by George W. Bush and confirmed by a 97- 0 senate vote,  ruled in favor of Texas and eight other states that sued to halt the DACA program, which provides protections to an estimated three-quarters of a million illegals.

Our votes matter. Among their many duties, U.S. Senators confirm federal judges, who are often on the bench for decades.

Conservative businessman Jim Lamon is challenging far-leftist, 2nd amendment restrictionist, benefactor of nefarious China deals and Obama insider Mark Kelly, who has been funded by Socialist George Soros. We have a chance to make a difference.


Gateway Pundit keeps Maricopa County’s ballot audit in national spotlight

July 16, 2021

In this May 5, 2021 letter to Karen Fann, president of the Arizona State Senate, Pamela S. Karlan,* the head of the Biden administration’s Justice Department’s civil rights division, claimed the Maricopa County ballot recount is illegal.

“We have a concern that Maricopa County election records, which are required by federal law to be retained and preserved, are no longer under the ultimate control of elections officials, are not being adequately safeguarded by contractors, and are at risk of damage or loss,” Karlan wrote.

Facts proved otherwise, Sen. Fann was not deterred, and the ballot audit not only continued, but spurred other states to take similar action.

Through it all, Gateway Pundit (GP) has been a reliable source of information. Struggling Newsweek magazine which began publishing in 1933 and ended its hard copy subscriptions in 2012 due to readers demanding instant, not week-old news, albeit with a leftist slant, absurdly refers to GP as a “mis-and disinformation site.”

As the relentless attacks continue, Arizonans — and others nationwide — realize leftist local media outlets are not reliable sources of unbiased information. Gateway Pundit has provided cutting edge reports. If you’re seeking updated, fact-based accounts of ballot audits they will never be found in the failing, skewed news disseminators.

Gateway Pundit’s most recent ballot audit reports can be read here (July 15), here  (July 16) and here (July 16). It’s information you won’t find in the blatantly GOP-hating local newspaper.

Jeff Flake: Biden picks turkey as ambassador to Turkey

July 15, 2021

Appointment is reward for Flake’s support of Biden’s presidential campaign

In what is surely one of the most appropriate appointments to come out of the Harris/Biden administration Arizonan Jeff Flake has been nominated as ambassador to Turkey. Cindy McCain, who also campaigned for the democrat ticket, was similarly rewarded with an ambassadorship.

Flake, a former congressman and single term U.S. Senator, perfected his role as show-boater extraordinaire, colluding with democrats, though elected as a Republican. He posted photos of himself writing checks to democrat candidates, and was avidly anti-Trump,* to the point that his relatives who make up a majority of the conservative LDS town of Snowflake, AZ named in part for his great-great-grandfather, refused to support his candidacy according to a report in the local newspaper. Flake, who was born and raised in Snowflake, opportunistically moved to Mesa to launch his single issue, opposition to “earmarks,” congressional campaign.

Flake’s unprecedentedly low 18 percent approval ratings in his home state, convinced him not to seek a second senate term. Not only was Flake John McCain’s protégé, he was also Barack Obama’s weekly basketball teammate and traveling buddy, accompanying Obama and the democrat black caucus on a junket to Kenya.

A man of unparalleled deception, Flake’s pre-political past, which he tried to obscure, included working as a registered foreign agent lobbying on behalf of Iranian uranium mining interests in Africa. There was no room for this disclosure or his open border positions on Flake’s resume.

* The Washington Times’ Cheryl K. Chumley exposed this 2019 anti-Constitutional secret voting scheme to remove President Trump from office, topped by a photo of the lead instigator, Jeff the Flake.


Larry Elders’ GOP challenge adds to Calif. Gov. Newsom’s woes

July 14, 2021

California Gov. Gavin Newsom is a man beset with problems. He is facing a recall after over 2 million verified California voters, in a well-organized grassroots effort, signed petitions to put the recall on the ballot. In his arrogance, he missed a filing deadline that would have enabled him to put his party affiliation next to his name on the Sept. 14, 2021 recall election ballot. The irony is the measure was previously signed into law by Newsom. The Secretary of State he appointed sent the matter to the courts, where a judge ruled against Newsom. Previous recall targets weren’t allowed to list their political party, but dems who control the state Legislature changed that in 2019 after a state senator from their party was recalled — arguing it gives voters important information.

Alongside this backdrop of grievances against Gov. Newsom, he now has a newly announced challenger.  No. we’re not talking about former Olympian Bruce Jenner who ‘transitioned’ into Caitlyn, and is running as a single issue celebrity. 

Conservative Larry Elder has announced his intention to unseat Newsom. A native Californian, who grew up in the tough neighborhood of South Central Los Angeles, he is a nationally syndicated talk radio star who hosts The Larry Elder Show. Larry Elder also possesses a stellar resume making him a formidable candidate. Elder is an attorney, best selling author and documentary producer. Our readers will recognize him as a regular on Fox News network. This first-rate commentary, written by Elder in Nov. 2020, preceding the presidential election, is indicative of his political posture.

The Orange County Register attempts to undermine his candidacy with these incendiary words: “Elder stands out as a Black man in a national GOP dominated by whites.”

With his wit on full display, Elder said that reality counters Newsom’s narrative that the recall is an “effort led by (former President Donald) Trump white nationalists.”

“Do I look like a white nationalist?” Elder asked.

Fellow conservative radio host Dennis Prager is among Elder’s enthusiastic supporters who have encouraged him to run.
