Pervert dem megadonor Ed Buck guilty of 9 felonies

July 30, 2021

Conviction of far-left darling of the hypocritical Arizona Republic unworthy of mention on its pages

Earlier this week, a Los Angeles federal jury, deliberating only four hours following a two-week trial, convicted wealthy democrat donor Ed Buck on charges that he injected indigent gay men with methamphetamine in exchange for sex, leading to two deaths and other overdoses, in the mattress-lined living room what was described as his Hollywood “house of horrors.” Court documents portray Buck as a “violent, dangerous sexual predator, who uses the bait of drugs, money, and shelter to lure men struggling with addiction and homelessness into his home, where he manipulates them into participating in his sexual fetishes.”

Buck, 66, was found guilty of nine felony counts including providing and injecting the drugs that led to the overdose deaths of Gemmel Moore, 26, and Timothy Dean, 55. A sentencing date has not yet been announced.

Arizonans will remember Buck (a name he altered from Buckmelter), as detailed in this 2019 post titled. “Deviant Dem megadonor Ed Buck finally arrested after 3rd man overdoses & Update.” Buck’s nefarious anti-Republican career took root in Phoenix, where he received ongoing praise and celebratory status in the local newspaper for being the driving force to take down newly elected Gov. Evan Mecham prior to his January 5, 1987 inauguration to his contrived impeachment conviction on April 4, 1988. The far left Arizona Republic cheered on Buck’s efforts against the former state senator, decorated World War II fighter pilot and POW, and a successful businessman. Evan Mecham was a devoted husband, father of seven, and active in his church, but he was a political conservative making him deserving of the wrath of the radical local newspaper, which daily vomited its multi-pronged, anti-conservative, vicious spew on him.

Governor Mecham was Donald Trump decades before President Donald Trump appeared on the political horizon.

Ed Buck lavished campaign donations on prominent state and federal (be sure to read the entire lists). Democrat candidates — Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Adam Schiff, were among the recipients of Buck’s generosity. Congressman Schiff, who represented the district where Buck lived was known to visit his home.

Buck has given more than $500,000 to a wide array of democrat groups and candidates, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (who Biden just nominated as the U.S. Ambassador to India), Gov. Gavin Newsom (currently facing a recall election) and L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey — obviously attempting to curry favor with powerful office holders who could influence his fate. His scheme worked. While in office, Lacey twice refused to prosecute Buck.

The DCCC reportedly received at least $5,000 from Buck. AZ Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s PAC, Getting Stuff Done, (GSD-PAC) was a recipient of Buck’s generosity, separate from his donations to her campaign, which she ultimately returned.

Those on the long list of leftists who willingly accepted Buck’s generosity remain mute, as does the duplicitous Arizona Republic, which couldn’t praise him enough when he led the impeachment against conservative Republican Gov. Evan Mecham. Now Buck’s conviction is unworthy of mention.


Election audit exposé: BoS chair Jack Sellers is linchpin

July 29, 2021

Once again, Gateway Pundit (GP) proves to be the go-to site for information on the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors which has fought tooth and nail against the election audit verifying the results of the 2020 county votes.

Now we know why. The first paragraph follows this lede:

“Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman, Jack Sellers, has unique connections to China and American companies.”

“Jack Sellers is the Chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. He has refused or delayed compliance with judge-ordered subpoenas related to the Senate’s audit. He’s supposedly a Republican…so what gives? A look into Sellers’ other roles and those organizations may shed some light. We know he participated in trade missions to China. Trump was tough on China and curbed much of the illegal immigration. Is it possible Jack Seller’s loyalties lie elsewhere?”

Read the entire, enlightening GP report by Joe Hoft, complete with a photo of Chairman Sellers being cordially greeted by the Vice Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party in China. It’s news you won’t find in the audit disdaining, increasingly radical local newspaper, which has been losing subscribers at an unsustainable rate.


“Conservative” AZ Gov candidate Kari Lake was an Obama democrat

July 26, 2021

Talk is cheap…actions matter: Kari Lake revealed as Republican imposter

Former newscaster Kari Lake has entered Arizona’s governor’s race, characterizing herself as a “conservative” Republican. Her record tells a different story. Using her married name Kari L. Halperin records show she donated to both John Kerry and Barack Obama and getting testy while asked about her political switch as reported by leftist Mediaite.

She has bizarrely compared herself to Ronald Reagan who was once a democrat before seeing the light — a path she took in reverse. Kari Lake, who has honed her skills on camera after years of reading teleprompter scripts on Channel 10, is no Ronald Reagan, switching instead from Republican to a democrat. Lake is a political opportunist who has never held political office and has nothing to recommend her for Arizona’s top job. When asked about her political duplicity, she classily retorted, “Who gives a crap?” according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Kari Lake donated $850 to John Kerry’s and Barack Obama’s presidential campaign in 2004 and 2008, leaving the Republican Party, reregistering as an Independent before switching again to become a democrat in 2008. She opportunistically switched back when she thought it would benefit her.

Lake has also hired Mark Buse, John McCain’s senior advisor, to run her campaign. 

It’s no mystery why the Republican-hating local newspaper headlined its report following Saturday’s Election Integrity rally featuring former President Donald Trump, “Lake stands out among GOP candidates.” The blatant scheme at play is to make the least credible candidate appear to be the frontrunner. Don’t be conned by the conniving, leftist Arizona Republic.

There is too much at stake to trust a manipulative political charlatan with running the state of Arizona which now has two democrat U.S. Senators for the first time since Ernest McFarland (born in 1894) and Carl Hayden (born in the pre-statehood Arizona Territory in 1878) represented the state. Hayden had been the territorial sheriff and first ran for congress in 1911 in anticipation of Arizona’s 1912 statehood. Both Hayden and McFarland joined the military during World War I.

Throwing good sense to the winds is a recipe for disaster for the state of Arizona. Seeing Red AZ endorses State Treasurer Kimberly Yee in the AZ governor’s race. She does far more than reading prepared scripts on a teleprompter. Her solid conservative credentials are impeccable.


Michelle Ugenti-Rita’s political aspirations explode in boos at Trump election integrity rally

July 25, 2021

Scandal-plagued* Arizona state senator Michelle Ugenti Rita (R-LD23) received a roaring reception at Saturday’s capacity crowd Trump election integrity rally, but it definitely wasn’t what she was hoping for. 

Ugenti-Rita, who has said she no longer supports the Maricopa County ballot audit, and has ridiculed AZ Senate President Karen Fann, was booed repeatedly and finally left the stage in disgrace before finishing her prepared statements. Attendees were furious at her petty refusal to support SB 1241, an election integrity bill proposed by another Republican, Sen. Kelly Townsend — opting instead to join the democrats and Republicrat Sen. Paul Boyer. She‘s currently a candidate for Arizona Secretary of State and will likely be withdrawing rather than face a humiliating Primary Election loss.

Ugenti-Rita’s disgrace was widely reported nationally:

Trump in Phx today! Allies, foes will feel effect

July 24, 2021

Donald Trump’s visit to Phoenix today will present more than an opportunity to welcome him back, but also provide an insight into Arizona’s upcoming election cycle. Those who appear with the 45th president will stand apart from those who will be AWOL from what is being billed as the “Rally To Protect Our Elections!”

Best bets are those who have issued excuses, hoping to straddle the political fence, will account for their lack of spine at the polls. Gov. Doug Ducey sealed his fate with conservatives when he very publicly refused to answer a “Hail to the Chief” ring tone call from President Trump. Term-limited AG Mark Brnovich, a McCain ally and former private prison lobbyist, who never lets us forget he is the son of Yugoslavian immigrants, is now running for the U.S. Senate while keeping his distance from Trump — a move that will not endear him to the GOP base. Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson, a prominent donor and governor wannabe with little to recommend her for the state’s top job other than marrying wealthy developer Ed Robson who indulges her whims. She will conveniently be “out of town,” sealing her fate, as well.

As president, Donald Trump’s domestic and international policies were extraordinary victories. Our economy surged under his administration.

When the deadly COVID-19 pandemic hit, Pres. Trump presided over Operation Warp Speed, accelerating the development, manufacture, and distribution of vaccines.

He kept his promises on everything from initiating border wall construction halting the flood of illegal aliens at our southern border to meeting with previously ignored North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, in an effort to open dialogue with the communist leader. Although other presidents have vowed to do so for decades, Trump was the first president to fulfill the promise of recognizing Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel and moving the U.S. Embassy, as Katie Pavlich noted in 2017.

Insightful Americans felt pride in our nation’s strong position on the world stage.

Today we will have the opportunity to observe who joins President Trump on stage at the candidate’s forum that precedes the rally at the downtown Arizona Federal Theater.

It matters. A lot.

How do your AZ House, Senate members measure up?

July 23, 2021

The Arizona Free Enterprise Club has a wealth of information that reflects its pro-growth, limited government vantage point.

It is also known for rating the state Senate and House members, a legislative scorecard many fiscally conservative Republicans await each year. 

Additionally, the organization posts timely articles, follows key legislation and is informative on a wide range of issues. Today’s lead article is titled, “Biden Administration Wants to Silence People They Don’t Agree With.”

Start your day with knowledge. Spend some time on the Arizona Free Enterprise Club’s site.


Matt Salmon still chasing AZ governor dream…when not backing China

July 21, 2021

Though his political time has come and gone, Matt Salmon hasn’t gotten the message. After losing a gubernatorial race to Obama-connected, open-border leftist Janet Napolitano in 2002 and later announcing his retirement from politics, Salmon, a former U.S. Rep. who left congress twice, is once again running for governor. In the intervening years, he’s reportedly earned $336,090 yearly as the chief lobbyist for Arizona State University, notably supporting the Confucius Institute. He was aided in his duties as a fluent Mandarin Chinese speaker. He learned the language in preparation for his 1970’s church mission in Taiwan.

The Chinese Communist Party-linked Confucius Institutes are Beijing-run programs that ostensibly teach Chinese language and culture. Initially, more than 100 institutes simultaneously emerged at universities in the United States, plus Confucius Classrooms at the K-12 level. They’re directed by the Chinese Ministry of Education, employ teachers who are trained in China and teach government-approved versions of history, culture and current events to American students — few of whom have any relevant knowledge of either communism or China, as this disturbing Campus Reform article points out. This brief, but startling video provides an insight into the ignorance flourishing on liberal college campuses:

As of July 9, 2021, there are a total of 41 Confucius Institutes in the United States, down from over 100, as schools abandoned the propaganda programs thanks to pressure from the Trump administration amid growing concerns they have become indoctrination centers. This crucial report in the Washington Examiner reveals President Donald Trump’s proposed rule, “Establishing Requirement for Student and Exchange Visitor Program Certified Schools to Disclose Agreements with Confucius Institutes and Classrooms.” But before the rule made its way to the Federal Register or went into effect, the Biden administration withdrew it on Jan. 26, less than a week after Inauguration Day.

We’re all busy, but should never be too preoccupied to lose awareness of ubiquitous indoctrination programs intended to undermine our constitutional republic and using our younger generation to carry out the scheme.


Republicans doing the work of dems?

July 19, 2021

Isn’t this what the left always counts on?

The Epoch Times carries a must-read report titled, “Arizona Senate President: State’s 11 Electors Cannot Be Recalled After Maricopa Audit.” Only four days earlier (July 14) The Washington Times headlined, “Arizona election audit finds discrepancy, Senate president says: ‘Those numbers do not match.’” Despite overwhelming evidence, AZ Senate President Karen Fann appears to be backing down.

This is serious business. The 2020 presidential election results raised questions that required a ballot audit of Maricopa County’s 2.1 million ballots.

The Arizona Senate began the auditing process in January due to widespread reports of fraud and irregularities in Maricopa County. The Board of Supervisors refused to comply with the Arizona Senate until Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Timothy Thomason ordered them to do so on February 26, 2021.

Jack Sellers, Maricopa County GOP chair of Republican dominated Board of Supervisors, now claims the Maricopa County ballot audit is an “alternate reality that has veered out of control.” Sellers is taking his cue from County Recorder Stephen Richer, who duped Republican voters.

Other states, including Georgia, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania, disagreed, and have followed Arizona’s lead after ballot discrepancies were discovered.

Ballot integrity is vital to a constitutional republic. American citizens must have faith in our electoral system and the expectation that our elected officials will take their duties seriously.


Obiden admin. pushes mass amnesty to fortify dem party

July 17, 2021

Federal Judge halts DACA scheme in Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, South Carolina and West Virginia 

Nearly a decade ago, when Barack Obama pushed for DACA for illegal aliens, he claimed, “This is not amnesty, it is not immunity, it is not a pathway to citizenship.” Most Americans knew he was lying through his pearly whites. Now blatantly pulling the strings on the Biden administration, saying Joe is “finishing the job,” of his presidency, VP Kamala Harris is brazenly calling for a “pathway to citizenship” that gives “relief and hope to talented, driven, patriotic young people.”

The charade needs to be exposed for what it is.

In 2018, SRAZ wrote “…most are adults, not “kids,” which reveals the truth about DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients. There is no accurate means of verifying if they were brought into the U.S. as infants by their illegally invading parents or arrived last year after hoisting themselves over the border.” We noted that many of them are grandparents, not babes in arms. One category they surely fit is a large, reliable democrat voting bloc.

At the time, The Washington Examiner exposed the amnesty scheme for what it was. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), still under the spell of John McCain, joined with Jeff Flake and Dick Durbin (D-Ill) on pushing the measure that ultimately failed.

Fast forward to July 16, 2021. A federal judge in Texas on Friday ordered an end to an Obama-era program that prevented the deportations of what cunningly became known as DREAMERs supposedly brought into the United States as children. In 2006, Kris Kobach, constitutional law professor, former Kansas Secretary of State and author of Arizona’s SB 1070, wrote, “The Senate Immigration Bill Rewards Lawbreaking: Why the DREAM Act Is a Nightmare.” Kobach is currently running for Kansas’ Attorney General.

On Friday, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, nominated by George W. Bush and confirmed by a 97- 0 senate vote,  ruled in favor of Texas and eight other states that sued to halt the DACA program, which provides protections to an estimated three-quarters of a million illegals.

Our votes matter. Among their many duties, U.S. Senators confirm federal judges, who are often on the bench for decades.

Conservative businessman Jim Lamon is challenging far-leftist, 2nd amendment restrictionist, benefactor of nefarious China deals and Obama insider Mark Kelly, who has been funded by Socialist George Soros. We have a chance to make a difference.


Gateway Pundit keeps Maricopa County’s ballot audit in national spotlight

July 16, 2021

In this May 5, 2021 letter to Karen Fann, president of the Arizona State Senate, Pamela S. Karlan,* the head of the Biden administration’s Justice Department’s civil rights division, claimed the Maricopa County ballot recount is illegal.

“We have a concern that Maricopa County election records, which are required by federal law to be retained and preserved, are no longer under the ultimate control of elections officials, are not being adequately safeguarded by contractors, and are at risk of damage or loss,” Karlan wrote.

Facts proved otherwise, Sen. Fann was not deterred, and the ballot audit not only continued, but spurred other states to take similar action.

Through it all, Gateway Pundit (GP) has been a reliable source of information. Struggling Newsweek magazine which began publishing in 1933 and ended its hard copy subscriptions in 2012 due to readers demanding instant, not week-old news, albeit with a leftist slant, absurdly refers to GP as a “mis-and disinformation site.”

As the relentless attacks continue, Arizonans — and others nationwide — realize leftist local media outlets are not reliable sources of unbiased information. Gateway Pundit has provided cutting edge reports. If you’re seeking updated, fact-based accounts of ballot audits they will never be found in the failing, skewed news disseminators.

Gateway Pundit’s most recent ballot audit reports can be read here (July 15), here  (July 16) and here (July 16). It’s information you won’t find in the blatantly GOP-hating local newspaper.
