AZ Gov. Ducey lifts COVID restrictions as he looks ahead

Governor Doug Ducey issued Executive Order 2021-06 on March 25. After scrolling through 17 WHEREAS’ readers will finally get down to the NOW THEREFORE, officially certified with a gold seal, signed by Ducey and attested to by the secretary of state. According to COVID-19 Tracker, over 3 million vaccine doses have been administered so far in Arizona, with 14.8% fully vaccinated, and 26.7% of the population who have received at least one dose.

Bearing the effusive title, “New Phase of COVID-19 Mitigation…Business Guidelines Transition From Requirements to Recommendations,” the Executive Order officially provides Arizonans and businesses the ability to get back to living and reopening businesses. There’s always a backstory.

Ducey’s official bio omits his close association with John and Cindy Hensley McCain. When Ducey came to Arizona to attend ASU he worked at Hensley & Company, heiress Cindy’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship inherited from her father. A squish Republicrat, she endorsed and campaigned for Joe Biden for president in 2020.

Ever pragmatic Ducey was onstage with President Donald Trump at his Feb. 19, 2020 overflow pre-pandemic rally at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum, accepting the president’s accolades for securing the border. But within days, he forfeited his authority to Mexico as he halted the Sanctuary City ban.

It’s far worse to be stabbed in the back by someone masquerading as a Republican, than a candid Leftist.

Duplicitous Ducey is not going to go quietly into the dark night when his current term expires January 1, 2023. He’s got something up his sleeve which could well entail a self-serving party switch as he seeks his next gig. 

This post, “AZ Gov. Doug Ducey sells out to China,” details his groundwork, as he recently sold his 11,412 sq. ft. Paradise Valley golf course fairway home situated on 2.14 acres, at a discounted rate of $8,150,000. It includes a link to this World Tribune commentary by Joe Schaeffer, “Arizona Gov. Ducey to China: ‘Lots of opportunities’ to exploit ‘our defense industry, mining and ores.’” To call it enlightening would be the height of understatement.

    I’ll be so glad to see Doug McDucey gone. He’s never been an Arizonan. He grew up in Ohio and only came here to go to school. It was through his job at the beer distributorship, he got to know the McCain’s, which resulted in Ducey being mentored by RINO McCain.

    We need a strong conservative leading the state. Ducey has repeatedly shown he’s never been that guy.

  2. Hometown Guy says:

    Another fact filled post. Thanks. Lots to read here today, but all illuminating. I’m not a Ducey fan. Glad he’s termed out. We need a well credentialed, vibrant dynamo to take our state forward.

  3. D.B. Cooper says:

    Just finished reading the last link in today’s post (World Tribune commentary by Joe Schaeffer), It’s a must read for any Arizona conservative.

    I never realized Ducey’s longstanding ties with China which he reveals by saying he opened his initial international ice cream stores there. Sunny Italy would have made more sense, but the money went to the Chi-Coms who already own us.

      Hey…it’s “just business.”
      You might remember Demand Daniel McCarthy, who tried to portray himself as a conservative, ran for the senate and lost badly, manufactured his makeup removers in China. Conservatives keep jobs in America.

      • Trevor says:

        Ducey is a joke. He helped give us Kelly but he is partially to blame. Martha’s campaign manager in 2020 was Jeff Flake’s political director in 2017 when he wrote that stupid book plagiarizing Barry Goldwater. And Dylan Leffler allowed it.

      • Trevor says:

        I mean Daniel, though Ducey has been a total joke on this pandemic.

  4. Mike says:

    Don’t blame me. I voted for Bennett.

    • Blackbeard says:

      So did I, Mike. Ken Bennett had great credentials. I even filled a nominating petition for him and sent him a donation. But he let us down, essentially dropping the ball after energizing so many of us. His campaign was a dud.
