Slickster AZ Gov. Ducey halts sanctuary city ban

Why would Republican Gov. Doug Ducey merit praise from the Hillary-endorsing, viciously-anti-Trump, open-border-supporting Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) newspaper? According to its account, Ducey has had second thoughts about legislation constitutionally banning sanctuary cities in the state of Arizona. This sensible legislation had been requested by the McCain protégé, who suddenly disdains any controls on the illegal invasion.

The newspaper confirmed that Ducey, in an after business hours action, engaged in a “joint decision” (arm twisting?) with legislative leaders to shut down the resolution he’d asked GOP lawmakers to carry in both the state House and Senate.

Don’t bother looking for any mention of this surreptitious double-cross on his office website with numerous pages devoted to Executive Orders and News Releases. There is no explanatory governor’s letter. There’s not a word touting his change of heart on what should not be a contentious issue.

This is the simple, single sentence amendment, SCR 1007, intended to put the issue to a vote of Arizona’s citizens. Ducey, now serving his final term, doesn’t trust us. When those the newspaper describes as “migrant rights advocates” refer to anything that demands adherence to the law by their reliable pejorative “racist,” Ducey tucks his tail between his legs, develops amnesia, loses courage and surrenders.

Juxtapose Ducey’s bizarre decision against the fact that he stood on the stage beside President Trump at the colossal “Keep America Great” Phoenix rally and accepted the president’s accolades regarding securing the border.

Unlike the rest of us, the elitist Ducey’s don’t have to worry about locking their doors at night. They just sold their Paradise Valley mansion in a gated community abutting the Paradise Valley Country Club and golf course for a discounted $8,150,000. But even in their opulent surroundings the rule of law should still be relevant. Previously an ice cream tycoon, as governor, Ducey signs bills into law.

Doug McDucey’s current term ends on January 1, 2023. It will be intriguing to hear what his future plans entail. Our bet is a high level appointment where he won’t have to face the citizen voters he conveniently dismisses.

    Those who failed to vote for Bennett when they had the chance have no one to blame but themselves.

    • East Valley Conservative says:

      I voted for Bennett and sent him money, but his campaign became nearly non-existent. It was a great disappointment. I expected much more from a former legislative leader and Secretary of State.

  2. Rambling Rose says:

    Maybe Ducey’s planning on running for office in Mexico. He’d be well received.

  3. hoi polloi boy says:

    Is “Ducey” short for “duplicitous”?

  4. Capt. Marvel says:

    “Migrant rights activists”? Since when do those illegally invading our nation have “rights”?

    This type of distorted reporting is why we cancelled our newspaper subscription. Those running this sinking ship would rather take on water and sink than provide unbiased news.

    It’s so much worse to be conned by a person with an “R” after their name than a democrat from whom we expect nothing good.
    RINOs John McCain and Jeff Flake taught us that valuable lesson.

    • Frankly Speaking says:

      There were loud cheers and applause when Sheriff Joe Arpaio was escorted through the arena to his VIP seat. Ducey was jeered and booed, and that was BEFORE news of this pathetic betrayal was publicized.

    I was thrilled with your article. I was thinking that I was the only one who had those thoughts. Thank You

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      You’re welcome. None of us appreciate getting screwed over by those purporting to be Republicans and we put into office on the basis of their campaign statements — which are later revealed to be false.

    The Ducey’s sent their sons to private schools while our kids are being propagandized by leftist public school teachers who abandoned them to follow an avowed young socialist when they went out on strike for two weeks. Noah Karvelis embraces Socialism.

    Ducey then rewarded them with a 20% salary increase which still isn’t enough. Now they’ve got a socialist-style ballot proposition in the works to “tax the rich,” fomenting hatred of those who have worked to achieve success, create jobs and already pay the highest tax rates.

    Beware!! This is Socialism/Communism at its inception.

    That school on Central is as liberal as Georgetown….

  9. Mark VII Ltd says:

    No more money for “public” schools. K-12 should be all private with the ‘public’ money going as a voucher. No more teachers unions, no more federal dept of education. No more commie crap because parents would have real choice.
