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.”


Target stores peddling anti-white, racist prayer book

April 10, 2021

In 2015, many customers stopped shopping in Target stores due to their newly installed transgender policies that included welcoming transgender bathrooms, where your young daughter might have the opportunity to share facilities with a biological man wearing a dress using a urinal in plain sight.

The  stores also made the corporate decision to un-gender, or as this press release noted, “phase out gender-based signage” in the toy aisles that previously had arrays of trucks and other toys preferred by boys as well as those carrying dolls for girls and bedding displays of sheets with cowboys and spacemen or Cinderella and flowers, intermingled instead of specifically designated “boys” or “girls,” for ease in shopping.

But there’s more…guaranteed to make reasonable people fume. Veronica Hays, writing for Media Research Center’s NewsBuster’s, exposes a gem of a devotional Target carries in its book section. The article is headlined, ‘Dear God, Help Me To Hate White People’: Target Sells Racist ‘Devotional.’ Read the complete exposé, including this featured prayer:

“Dear God, Please help me to hate White people. Or at least to want to hate them” is the depraved supplication offered to the Almighty in an entry of a recently published devotional.

On April 3, a woman picked up this prayer book while she was shopping at Target. The devotional book, titled “A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal” is number one on Amazon’s Christian Meditation Worship & Devotion section and is a New York Times bestseller.

In today’s world, this irrationality makes sense. Dennis Prager’s best selling books in the Rational Bible series are unworthy of mention on the New York Times best sellers list.


Biden’s promised “transparency” evaporates

March 28, 2021

Within hours of Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration, his recycled Obama administration spokeswoman, Jen Psaki vowed “to bring truth and transparency” back to the White House…deceptively insinuating such elements had vanished under President Trump. She also declared her “deep respect for the role of a free and independent press in our democracy.”

That respect for the press must be the reason for excluding Fox News reporter Peter Doocy from being called on during Biden’s first press conference, 65 days into his administration.

Among the first casualties of the promised transparency is the Homeland Security Advisory Council, which Department of Homeland Security (DHS) secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said he would “reconstitute” in the next few weeks as he switches to a new model for the committee…likely one less transparent. Cuban-born Mayorkas, another recycled Obama-era insider, was a key player of Obama’s presidential transition team and the director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, implementing the controversial DACA program.

Mayorkas, in this letter sent Friday and obtained by Politico, high-handedly informed the committee that he is ending the terms of the 32 current members.

For all of the Biden administration’s blather about openness and transparency a far more illustrative image is its refusal to allow news cameras inside U.S. Customs and Border Protection facilities to see the massive influx of illegal invaders, many of whom are unaccompanied minors. That claim of transparency also evaporated.

On day one, during a virtual White House ceremony to swear in nearly 1,000 federal appointees and staff who do not require senate confirmation, feeble Biden donned his tough guy demeanor as he emphasized public service and respect, warning:

“If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treating another colleague with disrespect, talking down to someone, I will fire you on the spot,” he threatened the staff.

The same admonition obviously doesn’t apply when DHS Secretary Mayorkas indiscriminately fires 32 experienced members of the advisory council.


AZ Republic: Extra, extra!! Get your skewed news here!

Dying newspaper deserves its fate

In a bygone heyday, before the advent of free news available from countless sources, those aspiring to be well informed subscribed to newspapers. Many Americans had a hard copy hit their driveway in the early morning and another, more updated edition, was delivered in the afternoon. In Arizona The Arizona Republic and Phoenix Gazette fulfilled those roles. Owned by the publishing titan Pulliam family, the newspapers provided objective information to readers including a daily op-ed page and bore no resemblance to the arm of the democrat party that exists today. The Gazette, delivered six days a week, excluding Sunday, folded in 1997, after 116 years. The Trump-hating, Hillary and Biden-endorsing Arizona Republic, whose remaining employees voted to unionize following massive staff cutbacks including dumping longtime, Pulitzer-prize winning cartoonist Steve Benson, is hanging by a thread, after losing its building and finally being sold after repeatedly being on the auction block.

The seriously ailing, purveyor of conservative loathing and disinformation, the uni-opinion newspaper, which is bonded to promoting the illegal invasion at our southern border, even went so far as to threaten 75 million Trump voters, absurdly demanding theyrepentfor their transgression, underscoring why its circulation continues to plummet. The newspaper’s only hope for survival is to discontinue the hard copy editions and go all digital, which is a gamble that won’t play well with the mostly senior citizen readers. A headline pleads: “5 digital benefits of a subscription,” with the desperate hate-mongers in charge pledging, “You can play a vital role in supporting local journalism that you and your community can trust.”

The Phoenix Business Journal reported steep declines. Between 2017-2019, the Republic lost 30.3% of its circulation. Those abysmal numbers could only have increased in the intervening years.

A sampling of recent headlined reports we’re supposed to “trust”:

– “GOP’s ‘open borders’ frenzy is a distraction”

– “Ducey must stop anti-voting bills”

– “Has state’s GOP ever before been this crazy?”

– “Want to help the economy? Let more people out of jail”

– “Biden has one job: Fix the mess that Trump left us”

…and this classic example of hypocrisy, “We must call out hate everywhere.”


Career criminal worth more dead than alive

March 13, 2021

George Floyd’s family has been awarded a $27 million settlement declaring it “a necessary step for all of us to begin to get some closure,” while extolling his “legacy”

The death of violent career criminal and repeatedly incarcerated*George Floyd, has become a rallying cry for defunding the police. We all saw Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin restraining 6′ 4″ 223 lb. Floyd with a knee to his neck. He is jailed and awaiting trial with jury selection underway. Three other officers who witnessed the incident will be tried together in a separate trial scheduled for Aug. 23, 2021. Following Floyd’s death the city council, in a unanimous vote, quickly withdrew $8 million dollars from the police budget, over the mayor’s objections, which resulted in an escalated crime wave…with violent uprisings throughout the city.

Unemployed George Floyd, aka Floyd Perry, was resisting arrest as he was apprehended for attempting to pass a counterfeit $20 dollar bill in a store. As his autopsy report verifies, he was high on drugs. Yet he became the rallying cry for violent BLM looters and arsonists who mounted destructive demonstrations in numerous American cities. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, a committed leftist, was met with loud boos and jeers after telling demonstrators he did not support abolishing the city police department. They later assembled on the lawn of his home chanting derogatory slogans.

Now George Floyd’s family has been awarded a $27 million settlement, unanimously approved by Minneapolis’ City Council. Frey is a member of the Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party (DFL) and the city council which has 13 members, is also dominated by the far left-wing party, with a total of 12 members. The Green Party of Minnesota has one council member. There is not a single Republican city representative.

George Floyd’s brother, Rodney Floyd, preposterously called the $multi-million settlement “a necessary step for all of us to begin to get some closure.”

Doling out money is not an impediment for the radical council. As of 2021, Minneapolis council members have a base salary of $106,101, excluding numerous benefits. In a cozy deal, salary increases for council members and the mayor are based on “averaging out the increases included in the union contracts they approved the previous year.”

BLM thugs have a billionaire friend in Illinois Guv’s office

February 25, 2021

The trendy canard, ‘systemic racism’ gets a workout in Illinois

The Black Lives Matter fabrication known as “system racism” has found an ally in Chicago, despite the fact that the Illinois city has become the benchmark for violent crime.

Homicides in Chicago skyrocketed in 2020 as the number of deadly shootings rose dramatically to 769 — 274 more than the previous year. Overall, 2020 was the bloodiest year in more than two decades, with the number of shooting victims markedly increasing when gauged against the previous year: 4,033 victims in 2020, compared to 2,598 in 2019.

The vast majority of such shootings are black-on-black, as columnist and former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy noted in June 2020.

Now criminals have a high placed and powerful friend.

Earlier this week, Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed an exceedingly lengthy and controversial criminal justice reform bill (HB 3653), authored by the legislature’s black caucus. Its intent is to hamstring police and makes Illinois the first state in the nation to abolish cash bail, giving criminals a free pass to commit more crimes and making victims reluctant to testify against them, fearing reprisals. It was clearly a political decision for the democrat multi-billionaire governor.

As if on cue while pandering to his far left base, Pritzker called the law, “One that marks a transformative step in moving Illinois forward…is Illinois’ effort to lead the country in dismantling systemic racism.”

Check out the following link in the Prairie State Wire for an insight into elitist Pritzker’s stunning hypocrisy.


Dem doctors’ odd obsession with death and sex

February 24, 2021

State sanctioned death in Virginia reveals a bizarrely ironic twist. Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam, M.D., a onetime pediatric neurologist, disdains the death penalty for even the most violent criminals, but thinks infanticide up to and including live births, should be the mother’s prerogative. He publicly advocated for the late-term and post delivery killings. There are no risks involved in this abhorrent stance since it passes muster in the far-left state.

Northham is expected to sign the bill abolishing capitol punishment in the state. There is no crime too vile to meet the standard to receive the ultimate penalty.

We’ve also been following the career path of Rachel Levine, M.D., a pediatrician, who could easily be defined as a resembling an unattractive man with long bleached blonde hair. The description is apt, since that is exactly what Rachel, born Richard, is. Levine, who does not want to be misgendered,” (photo) has been appointed to the Department of Health and Human Services.

Worse yet, Levine has been nominated by Biden as assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, a particularly concerning post, since one of the foremost agenda items is advocating for puberty blocking hormones for children who claim to be transgender.

Biden, who has announced the introduction Congressional H.R. 5, known as the Equality Act, has never seen aberration he doesn’t embrace. Its title is: “To prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and for other purposes.”

In announcing his nominees, Biden’s media releases has used these words: “As tested and experienced leaders, these nominees will help advance President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda and build a stronger, more resilient, and more inclusive nation that delivers every American a fair opportunity and an equal chance to get ahead.”

When he could choose the best, Joe Biden veers into playing into a “more inclusive nation.” This letter to Biden protesting the nomination of former California Congressman Xavier Bererra to head the Department of Health and Human Services is signed by his former colleagues including Republicans in the Arizona delegation. Bererra has been endorsed by pro-abortion groups NARAL and Planned Parenthood. To no one’s surprise, even Dr. Anthony Fauci got in on the act.  Fauci is seen here pictured with his longtime radical cohorts, including Socialist George Soros and Bill Gates father.


Dems sham impeachment insults fair minded Americans

February 12, 2021

As the politically motivated sham impeachment lumbers on with theatrically tearful and choked up democrats trying to make a case for a second vengeful action against former President Donald Trump, the true motivation becomes clear.

President Trump did nothing to warrant the grandstanding efforts to impeach him once…let alone twice. This production is all about rendering him ineligible to hold political office ever again. It also neuters the 74 million voters who supported him as they rejected the radical policies of frail and declining leftist Joe Biden.

This is the face of retribution.

On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer did not rule out bringing legislation to bar former President Donald Trump from office if he is not convicted at the flagrantly contrived Senate impeachment trial.

Senate democrats have discussed their options if they are unable to secure the 67 votes needed to convict Donald Trump, and bar him from ever again holding office. In a subsequent simple-majority vote, they could invoke the 14th Amendment of the Constitution to carry out their scheme.

The 14th Amendment to the Constitution Section 3, states that Congress can bar people who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the U.S. from holding office. The original intent of the amendment was to prevent former Confederates from serving in the government following the Civil War.

Within the first year of being elected, President Trump was deemed more conservative than Ronald Reagan by the Heritage Foundation, setting up the permanent rankling by the left. Unable to allow the process to play out as Republicans have done with radicals such as Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama, democrats embarked on not one, but two, attempts at impeachment. So committed are the leftatics, they want to impeach someone who is not even in office. The chief justice refused to preside over the charade. It’s doubtful this retaliatory measure has the votes to pass.

Hatred is a compelling force, even overriding reality.


Mark Cuban: “National anthem doesn’t represent America”

February 11, 2021

Who does Anthem Maverick Mark Cuban represent? Certainly not his own grandparents

Multi-billionaire Mark Cuban briefly toyed with the idea of running for president in 2020. In a sports crazed nation, the Dallas Maverick’s owner might have generated some success, but dropped out before having to address the realities of running the nation and interacting on the world stage. Flirting with self aggrandizing notions and then dropping them is not the purview of ordinary Americans.

The day after Cuban announced he had no plans to play the national anthem at any future home games, reinforcing a decision he implemented last season, NBA Chief Communications Officer Mike Bass released this statement on Wednesday:

“With NBA teams now in the process of welcoming back fans into their arenas, all teams will play the national anthem in keeping with longstanding league policy.”

“We respect and always have respected the passion people have for the anthem and our country,” according to Cuban’s flawed rationale. “But we also loudly hear the voices of those who feel that the anthem does not represent them. We feel that their voices need to be respected and heard, because they have not been.”

“Our hope is that going forward people will take the same passion they have for this issue and apply the same amount of energy to listen to those who feel differently from them,” he said. “Then we can move forward and have courageous conversations that move this country forward and find what unites us.”

Cuban had previously expressed support for players kneeling during the national anthem, saying “if they were taking a knee and they were being respectful, I’d be proud of them. Hopefully I’d join them.”

The un-American concept is all the more outlandish coming from a man whose own grandparents were immigrants from repressive Russia and Romania. His Russian-born paternal grandfather anglicized the family name from “Chabenisky” to “Cuban.” No doubt they felt pride in being Americans and having the ability to live in freedom and opportunity. Cuban’s father worked as an automobile upholsterer, who likely never dreamed his son would achieve such success in a country he now thumbs his nose at, for not being inclusive enough.


AZ GOP State Sen. Paul Boyer surrenders to Dems

February 9, 2021

Political contortionist lacks core beliefs

It’s not everyday we see a career politician wave a white flag at the opposing party, (video seen below) but that’s what took place Monday at the Arizona State Senate. At issue is a declaration holding the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in contempt for failure to adhere to a subpoena challenging the November presidential election results in which irregularities were witnessed with the problematic Dominion voting machines. Maricopa County GOP chair Rae Chornenky resigned in the wake of failing to certify the voting machines. Arizonans were not alone in their distrust. Following the election, Rasmussen Reports polling cited 47% who thought fraud was likely.

Paul Boyer was the lone Republican among 16 who voted against holding the AZ Board of Supervisors accountable. His bizarre quote is, “Make no mistake today’s vote merely provides a little bit more time to work together charitably and actively as friends.”

If Boyer thinks Republicans have democrat colleagues with whom he can he rely on as “charitable friends,” he must believe in the tooth fairy.

Although his photo, committee assignments and office phone number are shown on the senate website, there is no biographical information for Boyer, who is termed out in two years. You might want to call his office and express your dissatisfaction with his foolish vote that frustrated Senate President Karen Fann and bewildered Republicans.

The brief text of SR1005 can be read here. No doubt Boyer’s angling for a much more lucrative future lobbying gig. State legislators are paid $24,000 a year and haven’t had a pay increase since 2000. For mental midgets such as Boyer caving to his democrat “friends,” even that paltry sum is too much.
