Maricopa County: $3 Million 2020 election questions demand answers

April 20, 2021

Dependable news is in less than short supply at the leftist Arizona Republic, so today we take our truth-seeking readers directly to Gateway Pundit which has been the go-to source for information regarding the 2020 Maricopa County ballot recount. It is scheduled to begin April 22…two short days away.

Joe Hoft’s lengthy headline, “HUGE: Maricopa County Was Given $3 Million of ‘Zuckerbucks’ Before Election But No One Knows Who Received It and What It Was Used For,” provides the link to get the information you need.

The facts are too significant for residents of Maricopa County to remain blindsided. It’s clear Joe Hoft, who has relentlessly pursued this and related matters, while naming the colluding offenders, has well placed sources within our state. For that we must be grateful, since many of those in positions of power have intentionally ignored what should be front burner issues.

Mark Zuckerberg, a small statured, 5’7″, 36-year-old political radical worth $110.2 billion was accused in 2018 of deceiving Congress about massive data sharing partnerships allowing other companies access to personal data of Facebook users and their friends. Those of you who use Facebook are making him even richer and gifting him the ability to recreate America in his far left image. Break your addiction or your complacent compulsion will be complicit in funding our own destruction.


CA police chief magically morphs into judge and jury

April 19, 2021

 Intending to intimidate, criminals send bloody message to wrong house. Santa Rosa, Calif. police chief throws officers under bus as he claims to know “values and beliefs” of city’s police

It appears intimidating thugs are trying to replicate the bloody severed horse’s head in the bed warning scene in the classic movie, ‘The Godfather.’

The latest version, also meant to intimidate, was a gory, dripping decapitated pig’s head. It was thrown on the front porch of a Santa Rosa, California home previously owned by Barry Brodd who moved from the state two decades ago. Brodd, a retired Santa Rosa police officer, recently testified as a consultant on police practices and use of force expert for the defense in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derrick Chauvin.

Brodd’s credentials are impressive as his resume indicates. In 1995, he opened BVB & Associates, providing consulting and expert witness services.

Police Chief Rainer Navarro, promoted as the first Hispanic chief in July 2019, is obviously worried he might be targeted in the same gruesome manner. Navarro takes the low road by issuing this blatantly biased statement* making it clear he has, without spending a moment at the trial, hearing all of the facts presented in the case, or reading this incriminating autopsy report, has thrown both Barry Brodd and Derek Chauvin under the politically correct bus. He definitely doesn’t want the city of Santa Rosa looted and burned as numerous other American cities have been by those with no respect for the law. In the big picture, former officers are an expendable commodity, as calls to “defund the police” have become pervasive.

 Chief Navarro ought to focus on his own community where violent crime remains high.

* “We are aware of former Santa Rosa Police Officer, Barry Brodd, providing testimony in the Derek Chauvin trial. Mr. Brodd has not been employed by the department since 2004. His comments do not reflect the values and beliefs of the Santa Rosa Police Department.”


Gen. Flynn issues Maricopa County 2020 election recount warning

April 18, 2021

Once again, Gateway Pundit scoops the flaccid leftist local newspaper, as it reports on General Michael Flynn’s warnings (watch the video) regarding possible imported mayhem as the Maricopa County 2020 General Election re-tabulation takes place this coming week. Maricopa County is the fourth most populous county in the United States, larger than many eastern seaboard states.

It should come as no surprise that biased Associated Press, using loaded words and deliberate mischaracterizations, enthusiastically reported that democrats referred to the effort as “a charade” to “mollify Trump-backers” and “undermine the integrity” of the election. These are the same people who promoted a debilitated, shell of a man to lead our nation in perilous times. Only the hopelessly ill-informed would take their views seriously.

The Wall Street Journal headlined its 2020 post-election report, “Biden Lead Shrinks in Arizona as Counting Continues.”


Sundowner’s Syndrome consumes AZ newspaper

April 17, 2021

Failing Arizona Republic contrives to divert attention from Biden’s missteps

Occurring at end of life, Sundowner’s Syndrome is a disease often accompanying dementia where patients reject nourishment and hasten their own demise. 

The seriously declining, Trump-hating, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic, consumed by blatant loathing of Republicans, exhibits signs of the debilitating disease.  A recent weekend edition was a tribute to vacuous nothingness, though featuring a multi-page, pre-written report, stretching over several days, focusing on a fugitive killer who brutally murdered his wife and children and then blew up their Scottsdale home in 2001. This tragic but ancient news took precedent over covering the radical Joe Biden administration’s previously unimaginable political overreaches, gaffes and missteps on the world stage.

The far leftist newspaper which routinely eviscerates Arizona’s Republican members of congress, and other GOP elected officials, as it slobbers praise on the democrats, still runs regurgitated columns by Clay Thompson who died in 2018, no longer requiring a salary or benefits.

A front page report covers the Tucson police chief being selected by the Biden administration to head U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The two-page report uses the second sentence to describe Chris Magnus as a “critic of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.” That single fact makes Magnus worthy of praise. On ICE’s webpage, it used the correct term “illegal aliens,” which will no doubt disappear when Magnus is sworn-in.

Magnus’ nomination is placed beside an article declaring the black community’s distrust of COVID vaccine is based on Tuskegee memories dating back to 1932. Inexplicably, the word black always rates being capitalized, while white remains lowercase.

 Ethnicity is the driving force behind every report and hiring decision at the “inclusive” Arizona Republic newspaper, surpassing accuracy and content. The dying and homeless daily is committed to its own demise.


Hostile takeover of SCOTUS advanced by democrats

April 16, 2021

Democrats are like spoiled children, proficient at whining, foot stomping and petulantly claiming they are  getting the short end of the stick. This is especially true when the “stick” in question happens to be the U.S. Supreme Court.

It is the president’s prerogative to nominate justices as vacancies occur.  President Trump had three such opportunities during his term, filling seats on the high court with Brett Kavanaugh (replacing Justice Anthony Kennedy), Neil Gorsuch (replacing Justice Antonin Scalia) and Amy Coney Barrett (replacing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg).

The likelihood of repeating that feat is slim to none for Pres. Joe Biden, who is obviously in failing health and unlikely to serve out his full term.

Therein lies the quandary. The new administration wants to put its leftist mark on the court. That ideology was epitomized by Justice Thurgood Marshall who summed up his judicial philosophy with these words: “You do what you think is right and let the law catch up.” 

Conservative justices, often described as “originalists,” or “constitutionalists” see the document as not open to wide interpretation, preferring to follow the law as written. A constructionist approach not only aligns with the founders’ vision for America, but it also is the best line of defense against an out-of-control government that deprives its citizens of their freedoms. The Constitution delegated the authority to make law to the legislature, not to judges.

It is with these lines of demarcation that Americans need to pay attention to the democrat’s preparations — as announced in this White House press release — for a hostile takeover of the U.S. Supreme Court by expanding the number of justices from nine to thirteen.

On February 5, 1937, democrat Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt sent shockwaves through the nation by initiating a plot to expand the Supreme Court, known as “packing the court,” to insure his leftist agenda would easily be implemented. FDR’s scheme was short-lived, defeated by Roosevelt’s own party members. The senate judiciary committee was clear in its assessment, writing, “It is a measure which should be so emphatically rejected that its parallel will never again be presented to the free representatives of the free people of America.”

Today’s democrats are both ignorant of precedent and far less noble. 

The overreach is being pushed by Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-MA); House Judiciary Chair, Jerrold Nadler (D-NY); U.S. Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY); and U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) — who deceptively defended the legislation’s introduction as necessary to start debate on the issue. Ramrodding is not akin to debate.

“Ultimately, we have to repeal the filibuster. And then we can move this legislation,” Markey said. “Clearly, we would want Republicans to vote with us, but if they are not willing to participate in that effort,” he slyly added, “then we can still do this on a basis of 51 votes.”

Jones, who stated Biden is “doing a tremendous job,” also said, “There is no reason to work with’ the GOP right now.”

The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13, from the current 9 which has been the case for 152 years. Their intent is to flip the ideological balance of the 9-member court from a 6-3 conservative majority to a 7-6 leftist majority.

Though the consequences of this scheme are enormous, as a 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden, in an exchange with a reporter covered by the Daily Wire, said voters “don’t deserve” to know his view on this crucial issue. But as a senator in 1983, Biden held a far different perspective, calling packing the court, “a bonehead idea.”


Mob rule cancels law enforcement as facts are ignored

April 15, 2021

A tragic error has devolved into a police officer becoming the easy sacrifice to quell rioting mobs

Kim Potter, a 26-year veteran Brooklyn Center, Minnesota — now former police officer — was formally charged with second degree manslaughter Wednesday, after making a deadly error and pulling her service revolver instead of the taser she was reaching for. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

Body cam footage shows she repeatedly warned 20-year-old Daunte Wright, who was attempting to flee, “I’ll tase you! I’ll tase you! Taser! Taser! Taser!” To propel the legal lynching of Officer Potter, a married mother and career officer, mobs have so far rioted and looted over four days.

Though Wright is being portrayed as an innocent, police attempted to arrest him over an open felony warrant that stemmed from this aggravated robbery charge* in which he was accused of choking and threatening to shoot a woman if she did not give him her money.

The Daily Wire reports that U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) responded to the shooting by claiming on Twitter, without evidence, that the shooting “wasn’t an accident.”

“It wasn’t an accident,” Tlaib, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants stated. “Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed.”

You read that right. A member of the U.S. Congress, a democrat, of course, whose parents presumably came here to embrace our liberty-based existence and ensure a better life for their family, has boldly stated that she not only desires to defund the police, she wants to obliterate them, along with  jails, prisons and whatever falls into her concept of “militarization.”

Rashida Tlaib is not alone. Far-left extremist U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) shared Talib’s views on Twitter.

AZ AG Brnovich in full blown campaign mode

April 14, 2021

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who has taken refuge behind a scruffy Belushi-like beard and moustache, has audaciously signaled he is in full blown campaign mode via a lengthy email detailing his accomplishments. Titled “The General’s Report, ” it begins with a clichéd reference to Spring:

“With April now upon us, it’s time to reflect on the Spring season and it’s classic themes of rejuvenation and renewal.”

Reading between the lines, term limited in 2022, he is moving on, omitting the other “R’ word “reinventing.”

From there he uses his office to blatantly recount his accomplishments, as he employs the royal “we,” while veering into unbridled self promotion in a lengthy email sent to Republicans. How he gained access to the list is anyone’s guess, but recipients are less than enthralled with having a public official inappropriately using his office as a free campaign website. Over a dozen and a half links of the office’s “accomplishments” and links to expansive coverage are an overreach that doesn’t pass the smell test. As a lawyer married to a U.S. District Judge, better judgment should have been used. Although Susan Brnovich was nominated to the federal bench by President Trump, she was initially appointed to the Maricopa County Superior Court by none other than far-left partisan Gov. Janet Napolitano, who rarely engaged in cross party appointments.

In an ingratiating mode, A.G. Mark Brnovich signs his email using the words, “With gratitude.” The obvious takeaway is Brnovich is signaling in advance his gratitude for your vote and a campaign donation…though he doesn’t indicate what office he’s eyeing. From his current perch the possibilities are whittled down to a few.


Dem’s $12 trillion perpetual victimhood scheme buys party loyalty

April 13, 2021

Reparations for slavery is newest machination

The American Civil War ended on April 9, 1865, when Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House. The event marked the abolition of slavery in the United States. Jefferson Davis, a democrat, was the president of the confederacy. Abraham Lincoln, the nation’s first Republican president, ran and was elected based on his opposition to slavery.

That 156 year history gets muddled when in the hands of congressional democrats in 2021.

Many Americans trace their family’s arrival to the European immigration facilitated at Ellis Island at the turn of the last century. Influxes arrived on our shores, learning English, working diligently and embracing American history as their own. Mostly working class, they strived to ensure their children received college educations, understanding that was the pathway to a successful future. Asians, subjected to the bigoted Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 eventually arrived on the West Coast and became successful, contributing Americans. Not a single one of the newcomers, many discriminated against themselves, were slaveholders. Neither were the decades of Americans who preceded or followed them. 

But the democrats have another ace up their collective sleeve. Opening the southern border to hundreds of thousands of Central Americans is just the tip of their financial giveaway. The illegal aliens have been deemed eligible for enormous benefit packages, not the least of which is cash payouts.  

Pay attention to the scam The Washington Examiner headlines in its recent report, “House set to vote for slavery reparations commission.” The ultimate objective is that those of us who never owned slaves, will be paying reparations to those who never were slaves.

Though the concept is preposterous, H.R. 40 has 175 democrat co-sponsors, including Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ CD 2) who will not be running for reelection due to repeated, debilitating falls related to her admitted alcoholism for which she has sought treatment and Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ CD 3) who was frequently drunk at work and is on record paying off a victim of his sexual harassment.


Floyd’s murder trial deftly turns career criminal into victim

April 12, 2021

Fair news coverage replaced by leftist agenized version

As the George Floyd murder case resumes there is a police body cam video few have seen which puts a decidedly different perspective on the circumstances that led to him being restrained with a knee on his neck by former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin, after Floyd resisted officer’s commands to exit his vehicle.

An admitted drug user, Floyd, a career criminal, was high on cannabis, fentanyl and methamphetamine, (full list begins on page 5 of the autopsy report) — which exacerbated his coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease. And unwilling to be returned to prison for yet another stint, he fought being placed in the back seat of a police car. Floyd had moved to Minneapolis after being released from a Texas prison for aggravated robbery after breaking into the home of a pregnant woman, and pointing a gun at her stomach as he searched for money and drugs. 

We’ve all heard his cry of, “I can’t breathe,” but he also used the same phrase as he was upright and fighting officers attempting to place him in the backseat of the patrol car. The reason police were initially called is Floyd was attempting to pass a counterfeit $20 bill in a neighborhood store. At 6’4” and 224 lbs., Floyd was an imposing presence, larger in stature than any of the arresting officers. Chauvin is 5’9”.

Potentially tainting the jury is the fact that the Minneapolis City Council awarded Floyd’s family $27 million, which Floyd’s brother George Floyd’s brother, Rodney Floyd, preposterously called, “a necessary step for all of us to begin to get some closure.”

The trial judge strangely only selected two alternative jurors, which could lead to a mistrial if there are any infractions. One juror has already been accused of negotiating a book deal. A brazen Go Fund Me account initiated by Floyd’s family picked up nearly $1.5 million by June 2020. It no doubt has increased in the last year.

This video is important to watch:


Biden’s border crisis coming to a neighborhood near you

April 11, 2021

Arizona U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-CD 5) has become a regular Fox News go-to source on the border calamity and with good reason. His credentials are impeccable and as co-chair of the Border Security Caucus he has seen first hand what Pres. Biden and VP Kamala Harris — supposedly in charge of overseeing the catastrophic border — have not. In fact, the very suggestion of her going to the U.S./Mexico border sends her into fits of laughter.

We urge you to read Congressman Biggs‘ fact-filled column, “Biden’s Border Crisis Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You,” published on Townhall.
