Joe Arpaio and the facts get skewed in NYT report

May 24, 2017

Count on the New York Times to write a n inaccurate article on former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The intent of reporter Fernanda Santos was clearly to skewer the career lawman who was repeatedly elected by Maricopa County voters to an unprecedented six-four years terms.

If Fernanda was named Colleen McClanahan, would she have been given this assignment in which she conspicuously interviewed only Hispanics who were erroneously led to believe that Arpaio was targeting them without cause. His workplace raids exposed illegal alien profiteers — business owners and their agents — who hired illegal foreign nationals at substandard wages. Those in the U.S. illegally were rightly booked.

In what clearly appeared to be a personal vendetta carried out by a federal judge timed to coincide with the General Election in which the popular Arpaio was on the ballot running for a seventh term, he was charged with criminal contempt of court for ignoring U.S. District Judge Murray Snow’s order in a three-year old “racial-profiling” case. Arpaio acknowledged violating Snow’s order but insisted the breach was unintentional.

Arpaio was made to sound pathetic, when he is anything but. At age 84, he is quick-witted and robust, with an excellent memory and thoughtful demeanor. Reporter Santos portrays Arpaio as virtually friendless, left to look back wistfully over his expansive career. That, too, is delusional on her part. He still rates standing ovations and has maintained an unwavering base of loyalists.

The article briefly focuses on Arpaio’s successor, Sheriff Paul Penzone, but neglects to mention that Socialist billionaire George Soros, who is contemptuous of national borders, funded his campaign as part of a massive effort to reconfigure the U.S. Justice System. Penzone, who  refers to illegal aliens as  “guests” meets Soros’ criteria. Also missing from the report is the fact that Penzone had roughed up his former wife while a sergeant on the Phoenix Police force and was placed on administrative leave.

Santos scores another deception as she writes, “Fiscal conservatives deserted Arpaio, weary of the rising costs of his legal bills.“ Missing is any reference that Paul Penzone is angling for a $10 million budget hike for the upcoming fiscal year, which she obviously considers unworthy of mention.  Apparently the sidelong glancing Santos is only able to focus her negativity on Arpaio, which she then pumps up with flaccid “facts.”

Arpaio’s renown Tent City has been dismantled by Penzone, who has negatively referred to the cost saving effort as a “circus.”  The tents are military surplus, the same tents our service personnel bunk in. Here in Phoenix they are air-cooled.  In the Middle East desert, there is no such accommodation for our troops.

Included in the interview is a 31-year-old state legislator, identified as “a son of Mexican immigrants” (legal? illegal?) who represents the West Phoenix district where he grew up. He recalls seeing sheriff’s deputies “going down my street, raiding homes in my neighborhood.” This is a brazen lie. Such raids would only take place with a warrant issued in criminal cases, yet the bogus recollection is included as part of Fernanda Santos’ report. If his neighbors were drug dealers or murderers, he neglected to mention it.

The New York Times, it should be remembered, is the same newspaper that in 2008 — during John McCain’s failed presidential bid — wrote a piece on Arizona politics, highlighting then-congressman John Shadegg. He referred to his constituents who believe that a sovereign nation has a right to secure its borders, asxenophobic and intolerant.”  Shadegg is no longer a congressman.  He’s now earning a lucrative salary as a DC lobbyist — and no longer insulting us.


British terror attack victims rise: 22 dead, 119 wounded

May 23, 2017

Recent news reports regarding the terrorist attack in a packed Manchester concert hall indicate the suicide bomber was targeting teenagers and young girls — the fan base who were attending the Ariana Grande concert. The bombs reportedly contained nails, intended to cause maximum trauma.

As frantic parents and family tried desperately to locate their children, depraved Islamic State (ISIS) terror supporters celebrated the carnage.

Salvadoran “refugees,” Mexican Mafia bring terror to US cities

Despite dozens of vicious MS-13 gang members — mostly illegals — captured in a  Los Angeles raid, AZ Sens. McCain and Flake remain committed to amnesty

Following a three-year investigation involving multiple law enforcement agencies, dozens of members of the murderous MS-13 gang have been charged in a Los Angeles federal court in what law enforcement officials called one of the most significant busts of the transnational gang in its notorious decades-long history.

Among those arrested is a former head of the entire gang in Los Angeles and a dozen high-ranking members, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Central District of California announced in this statementThe vast majority of these gang members are illegal aliens.

“This gang is responsible for murders –- both of rival gangsters and innocent bystanders –- as well as drug dealing and extortion in many communities in the Los Angeles area,” said Acting United States Attorney Sandra R. Brown. “With thousands of members here in the Southland, the gang’s power is widespread –– power which it maintains with severe acts of violence.”

The investigation involved nearly two dozen law enforcement agencies led by the FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Drug Enforcement Agency and the Los Angeles Police Department.

“This gang uses coercion and intimidation while inflicting horrific violence in the neighborhoods where they operate,” said ATF Los Angeles Field Division Special Agent in Charge Eric Harden. “Today is a great win for justice and a heavy message to the community. Law enforcement will combine their resources and all our areas of expertise to cripple these organizations. We will win, they will lose.”

MS-13 started three decades ago on the streets of L.A., and was originally made up young illegals from El Salvador. Today its tentacles reach throughout Central America and across the United States — from the west to east coasts with a series of gruesome slayings recently in New York City. Last month President Donald Trump singled out the vicious gang as “one of the gravest threats to American safety.”

Yet Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, who led the failed 2013 Gang of Eight amnesty scheme with a gaggle of the most far left Democrats and a couple of other RINOs, remain dedicated to gifting rights belonging to Americans to illegal invaders from Mexico and Central America. They no doubt hope to wait until after Jeff Flake’s 2018 reelection bid before flipping on the neon “enter here” switch and rolling out the amnesty welcome mat again. Don’t provide the opportunity. Stop Jeff Flake with your ballot.

Dr. Kelli Ward offers Arizonans a far better, conservative choice — unlike Republicrats McCain and Flake who both refused to vote for the 2016 GOP presidential nominee — now President Donald Trump.

Pres. & Melania Trump’s Saudi trip a solid winner

May 20, 2017

Perfectly attired Melania Trump makes us proud

Gateway Pundit answers the question as to whether First Lady Melania Trump will be donning a headscarf as she joins President Donald Trump in Saudi Arabia, on the first leg of their week-long foreign trip. The schedule also includes stops in Israel, Brussels, Rome and Sicily.

The flawlessly attired Mrs. Trump who arrived in Saudi Arabia in a long sleeved, one piece black, wide-legged pantsuit adorned with a gold belt, represents America with class. Saudi Arabia Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir is quoted as saying, “We welcome any style in clothing.” Al-Jubeir issued his statement to media sources on Thursday. 

President Donald Trump appropriately shook hands as he met the Saudi Royals.  Unlike Obama who swooned at the sight of Muslim royalty, he did not bow. No previous American president has ever assumed a subservient position to other world leaders. Saudi King Salman stepped forward to greet President Trump on the red carpet rolled out for his arrival. The gracious salutation included  dancers, prancing horses and overhead welcoming jets, none of which was accorded Barack Obama.

Saudi Arabia practices one of the world’s strictest interpretations of Islam. Shops close five times daily for prayers. Local women are required to wear floor length robes known as abayas, and a head scarf. However, when asked whether the U.S. First Lady would have to dress accordingly, the Saudi official said the capital city of Riyadh — the Kingdom’s political, financial and administrative hub, “usually doesn’t demand” a specific dress-code, but rather “accepts suggestions.”

Scroll through Daniel Pipes’ Hijabs on Western Public Women to see photos of former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton donning a hijab or headscarf — required attire of repressed Muslim women. Her daughter Chelsea also wore the garment, as did former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, NBC anchor Ann Curry followed suit. ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer did so while conducting an interview with oppressive dictator and Holocaust denier Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Speaker of the U.S. House of Representative Nancy Pelosi also scarfed up. George W. Bush’s wife Laura is pictured wearing a hijab while visiting Saudi Arabia. Obama’s U.S. Attorney General, Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, is shown in the same garb.

Other female foreign dignitaries, celebrities, and members of various royal families are shown in headscarves. Former First Lady, Michelle Obama’s is fringed.

Democrat female politicos are skilled at giving lip service to “women’s causes” and denouncing “repression.” First Lady Melania Trump’s voice will be unambiguous through her grace and actions.

Democrats engage in violent identity politics as truth takes a back seat to “tribalism”

Dana Loesch, NRA national spokesperson and syndicated talk radio host, appeared on Tucker Carlson’s program Wednesday evening. Their discussion centered on the increasingly violent and fanatical responses of the left in their “resistance” movement and quest to impeach President Trump — just four months following his inauguration.  This brief segment is enlightening. Take time to watch it,


AZ Republic sniffs for scent of blood to do in Trump

May 18, 2017

Failing newspaper aided in its quest to take down Pres. Trump by AZ Republicrat Sens. McCain and Flake and gutless AZ GOP

The editorial in Wednesday’s edition of the Arizona Republic emblazons the headline, “Our View: Trump is unbalanced. What are Republicans going to do about it?”

Let’s begin with the fact that this is the same liberal newspaper, bogusly referring to itself as “conservative,”  that endorsed scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton prior to the Nov. 8, 2016 presidential election. No one was fooled then, nor are they now as they read this claiming to be definitive, tripe. It is the expected spew from what is known alternatively to its dwindling readership as the Repugnant, or the Daily Regurgitation, for its deceptive or repetitive articles which often appear in the same edition.

Among the adjectives editorially used to describe the President of the United States are: “Destabilizing, reckless, erratic, incapable and imperfect.” President Trump is portrayed as “a  cannon loose in the White House…gashing the timber.” Rather poetic for these leftist ranters who despise not only Trump, but those of us who put him in office.

Though working from their anti-Republican script, the editorial board feigns concern for the future of the Republican Party. In truth they’d be ecstatic if the party of Lincoln vanished. Amusingly, the newspaper also carries a  headlined report, “Sens. John McCain, Jeff Flake say Donald Trump woes a drag on GOP agenda” The truth is the actual drag are Republicrats John McCain and Jeff Flake, who both refused to vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Flake was quoted saying,Trump can’t win and shouldn’t win.”

Arizona Republican Party leadership shamefully went mute, doing nothing to rein in “maverick” McCain and his underling, Jeff Flake for their political heresy.

Returning to the anti-Trump editorial, the editorial board goes on to ask, “Did the president obstruct justice? Did he commit a crime?” They admit, “We don’t know the answers, but the allegations are powerful and credible.”

Allegations are just that. Allegations. Powerful and credible requires proof of wrongdoing. There is none. As if they care, the editorial goes on: to express concern that Trump would take the Republican Party down with him. They write “Trump’s conduct has brought a torrent of accusations that in themselves and their unrelenting fierceness can be destabilizing.”

So according to the Hillary-endorsing newspaper, “fierce accusations” should cause President Trump to vacate the Oval Office. Using that logic, why didn’t bolting the party orthodoxy to vote for Hillary Clinton provoke an editorial urging McCain and Flake to step down from the U.S. Senate? Where was the voice of then-state GOP Chairman Robert Graham? Current Chairman Jonathan Lines has not uttered a word of reproach.

Hypocrites abound — within the Arizona Republican Party hierarchy as well as at the Arizona Republic.
