AZ US Rep. Andy Biggs chairs House Freedom Caucus

September 14, 2019

Arizona Republicans have another feather in their MAGA hat, as Rep. Andy Biggs (CD-5) has been elected as the new chairman of the House Freedom Caucus.

The group is home to the crème de la crème of conservative House members. Arizonans can be justifiably proud that our entire GOP delegation are members of the influential group which was formed in 2015 and has grown to weld considerable influence. Other members are U.S. Reps. Paul Gosar (CD-4); David Schweikert (CD-6); and Debbie Lesko (CD-8).

Biggs, a retired attorney, previously served in the Arizona Legislature 14 years, the last 4 as AZ Senate President.

Conservative Review gives Rep. Biggs a Liberty Score of 100% and a letter designation of “A.”

Pres. Trump wins major SCOTUS victory on asylum claims & Update

September 12, 2019

Supreme Court ruling clears the way for new asylum restrictions

Finally some sanity from the U.S. Supreme Court on the issue of the illegal invasion of the United States. In a Wednesday ruling, the court granted a request by President Trump to enforce a recent rule intended to restrain asylum applications at the U.S.-Mexico border. This has been a key component of the administration’s policies to staunch the flood of hundreds of thousands of Central Americans claiming to seek asylum.

The justices authorized the government to enforce the rule that would bar illegal aliens from applying for asylum if they pass through another country — routinely Mexico — without seeking asylum there before arriving in the United States. The leftist 9th Circus Court of Appeals had blocked the government from implementing the new rule in Arizona and California, though now the government can enforce it nationwide while it appeals a decision by California U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar, to the Ninth Circuit, or if necessary, back to the Supreme Court. Tigar is a Berkeley educated Obama appointee.

 The only dissents came from Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“Asylum” is the key word. Illegal immigration advocates including ACLU legal teams, coaching the hordes of humanity illegally entering our country have instructed them to use the golden ticket word.

But asylum claims lose their validity when the so-called asylum seekers pass through Mexico without making their claim — instead traveling hundreds of miles further north to the United States, completely ignoring Mexico, which abuts the Central American counties they are leaving.

There is no language barrier in Mexico. But there is a symbiotic relationship. Mexico, which facilitates their incursion to the U.S. doesn’t want them. The Guatemalans, Hondurans and El Salvadorans, eager to access American taxpayer-funded benefits, have no desire to remain in Mexico, dispelling their asylum claims.

Mexico has wasted no time in loudly protesting the asylum decision of the U.S. Supreme Court, calling it “hard-line and astonishing.”

“This is the ruling by the court, it’s a U.S. issue, and obviously we don’t agree with it, we have a different policy,” Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard told a news conference.

That’s for sure. 

Mexican government hypocrisy is stunning. Mexico has long had barriers at its own southern border abutting Central America. Its current policy is to act as a collaborating facilitator allowing the hordes of illegals it doesn’t want, to move freely through its land mass to the U.S. border.

Mexico has strenuously resisted signing a formal “safe third country” agreement that would commit it to hearing the asylum cases of Central Americans and other illegals.

Getting an immense dose of the invasion the Mexican government has previously aided, Mexico‘s own citizens are reacting negatively to the influx. “We have seen outbreaks of acts of xenophobia in Mexico that did not exist before, mainly in the north of the country,” said Israel Ibarra, described as an immigration expert with the Continente Movil consultancy in Tijuana.

How interesting that Mexicans are now being accused of being “xenophobic” regarding other Hispanics.

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin wrote this enlightening column, “Police state: How Mexico treats illegal aliens,” containing a bullet-pointed list citing the regulations and restrictions Mexico imposes on foreigners — when Arizona was dealing with the repercussions following the passage of SB1070.


Joe Arpaio seeks 7th term as Maricopa County Sheriff

August 26, 2019

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is back in campaign mode. The Republican career law enforcement professional who rose from the ranks of police officer to director of the Arizona office of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, made the Sunday announcement to coincide with the birthday of his wife, Ava.

Taking a well placed jab at Democrat Sheriff Paul Penzone, Arpaio’s primary mission in running for sheriff once more is to “Make Maricopa County safe again.”

Maricopa County voters will long remember that immediately after his election Penzone welcomed illegals, who have invaded our country by the hundreds of thousands, calling them “guests.”

According to this fact-filled press release, “Winning in next year’s election would give former Sheriff Arpaio an unprecedented seventh term in office. Arpaio has never lost a Republican primary for Sheriff and he is the only Republican Sheriff re-elected in the past 100 years in Maricopa County.”

Leftist Penzone won in 2016, thanks to his socialist multi-billionaire benefactor George Soros, who pumped over $3 Million into Penzone’s campaign as he prioritized overhauling the U.S. criminal justice system. Penzone was also the beneficiary of relentless hammering of Sheriff Arpaio by the failing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper — which also endorsed Penzone — previously best known for roughing up his former wife.

While a Phoenix Police Sergeant, Penzone was put on administrative leave after a domestic violence incident that included the issuance of an order of protection against him by his then-estranged wife. Under the order, Penzone was unable to possess firearms — making it difficult to carry out his duties as a police officer. This type of background is rightly a career killer in today’s world, but Penzone was not only given a pass, but won the newspaper’s warm endorsement.

Back in 2011, Human Events listed the “Top 10 Reasons George Soros Is Dangerous,” referring to him asthe single most destructive leftist demagogue in the country.” Soros is a Globalist who abhors national borders.

Another excellent exposé of Penzone’s benefactor Soros can be read inDavid Horowitz Explains How George Soros and the ‘Shadow Party’ Rule Over Democrats.”

Republicans welcome Sheriff Arpaio’s entry into the 2020 race. He knows the difference between actual guests and those who have complete disregard for our laws and sovereign border.


Judge Jeanine Pirro pushes pot, sells out integrity

August 2, 2019

In an unexpected announcement HeavenlyRx, which calls itself “a global hemp and CBD* company,” spotlights the appointment of Fox News host, former judge and prosecutor Jeanine Pirro to its board of directors. Pirro has built a media reputation as the host of Fox News Channel’s top-rated “Justice with Judge Jeanine.”

The company boasts that prior to becoming a television personality more than a decade ago, Pirro had a distinguished legal career, scoring two firsts for women. In 1991, she was the first woman to be elected as a Westchester County Court Judge in New York. Two years later, she became the first woman to be elected Westchester County District Attorney.

Omitted from the braggadocio announcement?  Jeanine Pirro is also a disappointing trailblazer in selling out the principles upon which she built her legal career.

Pirro is quoted as saying:

“I am now excited to be a part of the opportunity for people to access fantastic wellness options that are both natural and physically and emotionally beneficial.”

“Initially a skeptic, I now understand there are tremendous benefits outside the assembly line of traditional medical and pharmaceutical dictates,” the new board member enthused.

The onetime judge and Fox News contributor joins former House Speaker John Boehner in giving aid and comfort to a growing industry that has seized upon the false concept of medicalization of the addictive substance in an effort to influence voters nationwide to legalize this anything but benign drug.

In February SRAZ bared the duplicity of former House Speaker John Boehner in the post,Fmr. House Speaker Boehner goes to pot, makes $millions.” Boehner is now an investment counselor for the industry, holding seminars to hawk the enormous opportunities to become wealthy investing in marijuana — er-r — cannabis. Previously opposed to legalization, he now glibly states, “Cannabis is here to stay,” as he hosted the American Cannabis Summit: Countdown to Legalization, touting job creation and new tax revenues. Regarding potential investors in what he calls a “golden opportunity,” Boehner blurs the facts as he bizarrely declares, “They’re dying to get in.” Others, who used marijuana as a gateway drug, are “dying to get out.”

Another, more knowledgeable view was presented in Hillsdale College’s esteemed publication, Imprimis. In the February post we wrote, after you inhale the dope from Boehner, read “Marijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence,” by author Alex Berenson which opens with an enlightening conversation he had with his wife — Dr. Jacqueline Berenson — then a senior psychiatrist at Mid-Hudson Forensic Psychiatric Institute in New York.

 It would be quality reading for Jeanine Pirro, but the cash is obviously far more compelling.

* Note the myriad equivocators used to describe its ability to cure everything from cancer, fibromialgia, diabetes and epilepsy to acne. The words “could,” “may,” and “might,” get quite a workout.


Judge tosses DNC hacking lawsuit against Trump team

July 31, 2019

Claims are “entirely divorced from the facts”

Judge John Koeltl, a Bill Clinton appointee sitting in the Southern District of New York, wrote in his 81-page opinion Tuesday that the DNC’s charge of illegal hacking with regard to the 2016 presidential campaign was “entirely divorced” from the facts.

The ruling came as Democrats have increasingly attempted to tie the Trump team to illegal activity in Russia — despite former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings that the campaign, in fact, refused multiple offers by Russians to involve them in hacking and disinformation efforts.

The Democratic National Committee initially filed its suit in April 2018.

“In short, the DNC raises a number of connections and communications between the defendants and with people loosely connected to the Russian Federation, but at no point does the DNC allege any facts to show that any of the defendants other than the Russian Federation, participated in the theft of the DNC’s information,” Judge Koeltl said.

“Nor does the DNC allege that the defendants ever agreed to help the Russian Federation steal the DNC’s documents,” he added.

Judge Koeltl denied the Trump team’s motion for sanctions but dismissed the suit with prejudice, meaning it had a substantive legal defect and could not be refiled.

This was the President’s exuberant reaction:

For Arizona conservatives, it doesn’t get much better than this.


McCain Institute falls on hard times

June 29, 2019

It took a total of three pages for the gloomy Page One story to be fleshed out. Listen closely and you can almost hear the gnashing of teeth over the ominous news bearing this headline: “ASU’s McCain Institute faces new challenges without senator.”

It’s a good bet the institute bearing the name of the deity worshiped by the adoring sycophants at the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic, was heading south prior to this lengthy admission of despair. McCain called Hillary arock starhe could support in 2016. They were both recipients of Socialist, America hating, multi-billionaire George Soros’ generosity.

The article interviews a high dollar donor who talks in terms of McCain’s “legacy,” always McCain’s paramount consideration. We are reminded that the man who graduated at the bottom of his U.S. Naval Academy class, was “the son and grandson of admirals” — which is how the flamboyant hotshot who crashed three navy planes, gained admittance to the USNA’s hallowed halls in the first place.

Cindy Lou Hensley McCain, a beer empire heiress, is given coverage. She is identified as a “humanitarian activist and philanthropist,” who also goes on record with talk of “advancing her husband’s legacy and values.” In fact, she has hired a Hollywood agent to book paid speaking engagements for her. Cindy’s going rate is between $5,000 and $10,000.

Between selling their luxury penthouse in the Biltmore area and buying and renovating a nearly $3 million French chateau inspired home in the upscale North Central corridor, she’s also been busy taking over as chairman of the Washington, D.C. based McCain Institute.

In her public statement, she said, “The mission of the McCain Institute, to advance values-based leadership around the world, has always been important to my family.  I believe the work of the Institute, from fighting human trafficking to training the next generation of international leaders to advancing human rights and democracy, is more important now than ever. I’m honored to take on this role, particularly as the Institute undertakes an ambitious set of new initiatives to expand its impact.”

Human trafficking is a topic Cindy McCain has made her hallmark, even when it involves blatant deception. Cindy concocted a preposterous story about witnessing the trafficking of a toddler at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, and went public with it, though her account was disputed by Phoenix Police.

The anorexic newspaper, back on the auction block, functions largely with student reporters, lacking editors. Now reduced to vagrant status after being forced to sell its 10-story building and parking garage, it pathetically pleads with readers, “Have news to share about Arizona’s U.S. senators or national politics? Reach [the reporter] on Twitter and Facebook.” Her contact info is included. “Support local journalism,” it begs. “Subscribe (newspaper’s link is provided) today.”
