AZ Gov. Hobbs signs executive order prioritizing ethnic black hair

March 20, 2023

Political atonement for discriminating against Talonya Adams?

Though Arizona’s public school test scores have lagged behind national scores, and were further negatively impacted by COVID school closures backed by teacher’s union members, democrat Gov. Katie Hobbs has other considerations that she prioritizes as it comes to Arizona‘s children.

Her focus is hair. And not just any hair. Hobbs has prioritized ethnic black hair. Her preposterous Executive Order titled, “Prohibiting Race-Based Hair Discrimination,” dated March 17, 2023 has to be read to be believed.

According to the 2020 U.S. decentennial Census (the most recent available), Black Arizonans comprised fewer than 5 percent of Arizona’s population — but they overwhelmingly vote democrat, so their hair matters to Hobbs.

This shockingly dismal Arizona Schools Report Card made available by the Arizona Department of Education under former Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman, a democrat, heralded the promotion of “equity” as standards. Grades were given short shrift.

State Superintendent of Schools Tom Horn, a Republican who previously served as Arizona’s elected attorney general, is back in charge of Arizona’s schools having won reelection as superintendent. Given his past successes in elevating Arizona’s educational standards and scores, Hoffman’s dismal record will be noted for the failure it was.

Hobbs defeated Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake by less than a single percentage point, 50.3% to 49.6%, which is hardly a mandate for Hobbs who continually wields a Janet Napolitano-style veto pen. That underhanded tactic earned the former governor —an open border advocate — who resigned to join the Obama administration, the nickname “J-N0.” Democrats govern by demagoguery. Republicans produce results.

For Gov. Katie Hobbs to prioritize black hair is absurd, but it‘s clearly a tactic to gain the good will of the black voters she needs to bolster her image after her unsavory involvement in the Talonya Adams saga. Talonya Adams, a black staff attorney and policy advisor was fired by then-senate minority leader Hobbs for wanting to be paid a salary commensurate with her white, male counterparts. Adams was paid $30,000 less.

This brief U.S, District Court order shows an impaneled jury awarded senate staff lawyer Talonya Adams — who represented herself in court — nearly $3 Million dollars after being discriminated against by Katie Hobbs.

Project Veritas posted ‘Disappearing Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate,’ during the 2022 campaign. In it Hobbs said, “I don’t want to talk politics with anyone I don’t know.” That must be the reason she refused to participate in the KAET-TV political debate…the only candidate for any statewide office to ever take that stance since the debates began decades ago.


Rodney Glassman moves on…Beware

February 25, 2023

In a disjointed, yet self-promoting email, perennially losing candidate Rodney Glassman, who has been the only “Of Counsel” lawyer of the two dozen attorneys with the firm of Beus Gilbert McGroder, is taking a hike following the death of founding partner Paul Gilbert, who provided Glassman cover. 

In an email sent to the immediate world, Rodney announces his new contact information beginning March 1 which we omitted.

Once again, Glassman will be “Of Counsel,” rather than an integral part of the firm. His bio highlights his time in the military since his legal experience falls short. Linda Bentley, writing for the Sonoran News, exposed Glassman as a recycled democrat when he ran for the Corporation Commission in 2017, referring to him as a “quintessential opportunist.”

Rodney Glassman, who currently and opportunistically characterizes himself as a Republican, has been the recipient of hefty donations by numerous far-left unions and is pictured grinning, having obtained the support the UFC Local 99 along with other democrats running for city, district, statewide, congressional and local races. You’ll recognize many of them.

Glassman was also endorsed by Planned Parenthood, the organization that promotes planning your family by killing them after conception. He was previously a candidate for state chairman of the Arizona Democrat Party, hoping to guide the statewide strategy for defeating Republicans.

Liar George Santos has an AZ rival named Christian Lamar

January 30, 2023

The name George Santos, who was a proficient enough liar to get elected to congress in New York, is emblazoned in our memories since his whoppers were ongoing and his actions outrageous. The link in the previous sentence contains a national news report revealing his preposterous lies.

Christian Lamar, a repeat, though losing, Arizona legislative candidate, was just elected as one of three to a low level obscure CD8 Member-at-Large post at the GOP meeting on Saturday, which he will use as a stepping stone for public office. The other two elected to the post were a state legislator and district chairman.

Lamar lacks any credentials, though he was previously charged and convicted of hitting his live-in girlfriend and coming after her with a frying pan while he was intoxicated. This occurred following a fight they had at a casino. Lamar maintained his innocence, despite three courts upholding the conviction. He then ludicrously filed a civil rights lawsuit against the female responding officer, the Phoenix Police Department, the city and other departments over the arrest, claiming his Fifth and 14th Amendment rights were violated and the investigation was maliciously turned against him due to his race and gender. Christian Lamar sought $7 million in damages, which was tossed by a federal judge. Had he won, he would have been made rich on the backs of law-abiding taxpayers, whose votes he continually seeks.

Christian Lamar was also the subject of a civil lawsuit brought by Midland Funding in 2021.

AZ Republicans beware: Another McCain is in the wings

January 26, 2023

Biden supporter Cindy McCain, becomes major liability

Last November we posted an odd Thanksgiving greeting from James Hensley McCain, who never previously thought to wish us well. Greeting us as “Dear Friends,” his father’s slippery salutation to those of us who were anything but, outs Jimmy McCain as a fellow with political aspirations as we noted in, “Another McCain seeking a political perch? Spare us.”

He wrote, “As our family prepares to celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, I wanted to take the time to thank you for supporting my Dad through the years. As we continue my Dad’s fight to advance freedom, prosperity, security and human dignity for the benefit of all, we would be grateful to have you join our efforts.”

He was assuming a lot. Conservatives were never fans of the devious John McCain who was more comfortable with democrats Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton while shunning conservative principles opting out of AZ GOP Statutory meetings attended by most Republican office holders. When ”Dad” finally attended a state meeting with Jeff Flake who opted out of running for reelection when polling showed him with an 18% approval rating in his home state, Dad and Flake were greeted by turned backs, boos, and walk outs, based on his ignoring the backbone of the party and pushing his democrat and Republicrat Gang of Eight pro-amnesty for illegal aliens. John McCain was also censured as was Cindy for her allegiance to Joe Biden…who rewarded her with an ambassadorship to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture. Cindy and her daughter (known on this site as Mega) and Flake, all endorsed Biden. The McCain’s unconcealed rage directed at President Trump is based in their jealous ire that businessman Trump won the presidency, the office John McCain regarded as his due, though the nation’s top job forever eluded him.  For his Biden allegiance, Flake was gifted with an appropriate ambassadorship to Turkey.

Now James (Jimmy) Hensley McCain is back in greeting mode, this time wishing us a late Happy New Year, as he once again shares memories of his dad. He’s obviously gearing up for an announcement of his own, though he’s never shown any interest in the Arizona Republican Party. Jimmy’s also hustling for donations to the McCain Institute. It’s a sure bet that Jimmy has got a case of the runs, which will be characterized as a tribute to his dad.

This 2008 New Republic article, “Made Man: How Cindy Hensley invented John McCain,” provides the background of how John McCain’s well-connected second wife launched John McCain’s political career. There’s little doubt she is now advising her son James Hensley McCain in carrying on the tradition.

AZ’s dem Gov. Katie Hobbs’ lavish inaugural events ultimately funded by…YOU

January 19, 2023

Mega donors buy influence with money Arizonans paid for their goods and services

After vowing a commitment to bipartisanship, progress and accountability in her inauguration speech, Arizona’s democrat Gov. Katie Hobbs has worked mightily to conceal the amounts contributed by high dollar donors who funded her inaugural events, including the Jan. 7, 2023 ball held at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale. Ultimately, the sponsors, listed here — minus contribution amounts — include all of us, since utility companies, banks, health care providers, food distributors, PepsiCo, the Phoenix Suns, AT&T, CVS drug stores, others listed only by initials, unions and, of course, Cindy Hensley McCain’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship supported Hobbs. Additionally, ‘Everytown for Gun Safety,’ a firearm restrictionist organization founded by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, ponied up funds for her political extravaganzas. It has been reported by several news organizations that the total amount Hobbs hauled in was nearly $1.5 million in donations from corporations and other special interests to cover the celebratory costs, although the events ultimately cost about $207,000.

Hold onto your hats, Arizona taxpayers. This formerly teetering on the edge of bankruptcy democrat governor, thinks you are her own personal golden egg laying geese. Watch as the spending spree begins. Be sure to thank the democrats you know who put this nightmare on the ninth floor of the AZ Capitol building.

In remembrance of Russell Pearce and the fate of the “Republic”

January 18, 2023

Although it is not our policy to post articles we did not write or something of this length, this is the worthy exception. Read it and you’ll understand.

A Celebration of the Life of Russell Pearce took place Monday, January 16 in the town he always called home…Mesa. Friends, family, and a crowd of admirers assembled to celebrate the life of this conservative stalwart and thoroughly decent man.

Former Congressman JD Hayworth was in attendance, and could not help but notice the difference between Monday’s service and the “send-off” provided by the daily newspaper. It prompted Hayworth to pen this column, reprinted below.

Russell Pearce and the fate of the “Republic”

You need not look very far to find the latest evidence reaffirming the well-earned nickname of The Arizona Republic.

A reading of the Jan. 5 article on the death of former State Senator Russell Pearce brings to mind the single word that serves both as an accurate description of that sickly publication’s open borders bias…as well as its oft-employed sobriquet: Repugnant.

The trio of creative writers tasked with putting Pearce’s passing “in perspective” certainly didn’t disappoint their editorial overlords; they deliberately mischaracterized the intent of his carefully crafted, ultimately passed, and signed-into-law Senate Bill 1070.

Actually, headline writers began the barrage by calling the legislation “controversial.” That word serves as the “tell sign” when a publication disapproves of the subject of its coverage. Reporters Andrew Oxford, Mary Jo Pitzl, and Daniel Gonzalez weren’t far behind; by the article’s third paragraph, they included predictable leftist doggerel, peddled as fact: “Arizona’s ‘show me your papers’ law,” they wrote.

Had the trio of scribes been interested in objectivity instead of smearing the departed, a simple bit of research into SB 1070 and its fate in the courts would have been highlighted.

The “Fair and Legal Employment Act,” as Pearce named the legislation, drafted in consultation with then-Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who now serves as that state’s Attorney General, was formulated with the intent of defining Arizona’s right to identify and detain illegal immigrants, based on existing federal law.

As Senator Pearce said in 2010, in response to the inevitable court challenges from the Obama Administration and other advocates for open borders, “SB 1070 makes no new immigration law. It simply enforces the laws already on the books…I refuse to apologize for standing up for America and the rule of law.”

In fact, no less a liberal tribunal than the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit made clear in 1983 that nothing in federal law precludes a city from enforcing the criminal provisions of immigration law, and SB 1070, its supporters maintained, simply advanced that same practice for the entire state of Arizona.

But the intervening 27 years brought forth an activism intent on defining “open borders” as noble, and any effort to enforce existing immigration law as wrongheaded, or on “the wrong side of history,” to use the favorite buzz-phrase of the left.

Such a dubious cause sought to wrap itself in legitimacy, and exploit the growing realization that many jurists on the federal bench were more than willing to usurp legislative authority if such a drastic action were in tune with their own political goals. Instead of “equal justice under law,” our nation has witnessed the advent of “unequal application of the law, based upon political preference.”

Eventually, the U.S. Supreme Court considered the constitutionality of SB 1070, and the high court, while finding some portions of the legislation in conflict with federal law, upheld the provision that the left and its media lackeys still mischaracterize.

Far from radical, the “Supremes” found that seeking documentation for a person’s immigration status was entirely reasonable. The ruling stated that if law enforcement officers have stopped a subject for a legitimate reason, those officers must “reasonably attempt” to determine that subject’s immigration status when there is a “reasonable suspicion” that the person may be in the country illegally.

But reasonableness means nothing to the rabid, and the reporting of the “Repugnant” focuses on pleasing a particular point of view typified by those whose hatred of Russell Pearce has not abated…even after his earthly departure.

How else to describe the featured comments of one “community activist,” who compared Pearce to a terrorist? Said this “activist,” whose name is omitted from this column since she is undeserving of any additional notoriety: “I’m sad for all the terror that he caused our community, [and] all the people who were deported because of his political grandstanding.”

For good measure, the “Repugnant” reporters felt the need to include one more example of this self-appointed “humanitarian’s” inhumanity: her desire to see the deceased lampooned for laughs. “She would love to see one last political cartoon showing Pearce standing at the gates of Heaven, and being asked to ‘show his papers.’”

What does The Arizona Republic have to show for its desired editorial goal of open borders and its eager embrace of amnesty for illegal aliens? Fewer readers, for one thing. A budget awash in red ink, for another.

Russell Pearce met the fate that awaits us all. Now he belongs to history.

The smug and self-assured, so eager to bid him farewell will soon find the publication for which they toil facing its own demise. Maybe then, the staff of The Arizona Republic will realize that they are on “the wrong side of history.”

AZ MLK Day lie perpetuated by leftist media

January 16, 2023

Catholic Biden, hoping to divert attention from his deceptive classified document chaos, delivered a sermon at Martin Luther King’s Ebenezer Baptist Church this morning

Ballotpedia blandly describes the passage of the Martin Luther King Day holiday in Arizona, noting, “The act establishing a Martin Luther King, Jr./Civil Rights Day on the third Monday in January as a paid state holiday and consolidating the paid state Lincoln and Washington Day holidays into a single Lincoln/Washington Presidents’ Day holiday.”

It was much more complicated than described. Republican Gov. Evan Mecham, a former state senator and successful businessman, was relentlessly derided for refusing to authorize another paid-not-to-work holiday. Instead, he set the observance for a Sunday, logically reasoning Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a minister and a Sunday observance made perfect sense, since it was fiscally prudent while honoring King’s legacy.

Impeachment petitions were circulated from the onset of Gov. Mecham’s election by homosexual activist and later convicted murderer Ed Buck (born Buckmelter), previously a high dollar donor to national democrat candidates including Barack Obama, Adam Schiff, Hillary Clinton and Kyrsten Sinema. Buck was charged and convicted of numerous murders stemming from his penchant for luring young black drug addicts to his home where he injected them with methamphetamines and had sex with them. Some were able to escape and contacted the police.

That wasn’t good enough for those who wanted another taxpayer-funded weekday off from work. Gov. Mecham, a religious man, was also practical. But his leftwing detractors in the local press swiftly and offensively portrayed him as a bigot, falsely claiming he rescinded the holiday. In 1990, by a margin of 75.36% – 24.64%, Arizona voters rejected Proposition 301 to create a paid Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.

Nonetheless, the devious contrivance was intended to heap scorn on the conservative governor, who won the 1986 GOP Primary Election trouncing well-known and well-financed contenders. Mecham went on to win the General Election in a stunning upset, defeating longtime GOP Majority Leader Burton Barr who incurred voter wrath for smirkingly admitting, “I lied. Next question,” when asked about breaking his promise to rescind a tax increase  A WWII fighter pilot, Evan Mecham was shot down over Germany, and captured as a POW at age 20, endured a long hospitalization and was awarded the Purple Heart and Air Medal. Still Mecham was marginalized and mischaracterized. The NFL even pulled Super Bowl XXVII from Arizona, based on the deceptive reporting.

Two years after the loss estimated at $350 million in major convention business and the Super Bowl, Arizona became the first and only state to popularly vote for and approve a Martin Luther King Day, creating the holiday in 1992. On March 23, 1993, the NFL awarded Super Bowl XXX  to Tempe, proving that even hints of extortion can be powerful persuaders.

AZ’s election fraud exposed by The Gateway Pundit

January 11, 2023

Looking for truth? Skip the local newspaper

Deceitful collusion is exposed by The Gateway Pundit’s Jordan Conradson. His report is titled, “JUST IN: “Defamation Attorneys Are Being Consulted” – Former Arizona AG Election Unit Head Jennifer Wright Starts Defamation Claim After Fake News Smears Her, Claims She Was Fired.”

To whet your appetite for the truth, Conradson’s pull-no-punches report begins with these words:  “Former Assistant Attorney General and head of the Election Integrity Unit Jennifer Wright came under fire from the Fake News Media, likely due to her willingness to pursue election fraud investigations, after resigning from her position before radical leftist Kris Mayes took office.”

Be advised, the linked report’s accompanying photo of Arizona’s new Attorney General Kris Mayes, is best viewed on an empty stomach. Mayes appealed to open border proponent former governor Janet Napolitano, who gave Mayes her first political break as her press secretary, but more discriminating people are sure to be repulsed.

Open border advocate Napolitano was known for saying, “You show me a 50-foot wall and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder,” after which Barack Obama appointed her Secretary of Homeland Security. Mayes, now in a position of authority, is an integral part of that cabal.

Ruth McGregor an odd choice to restore AZ election confidence

January 8, 2023

Following a November 2022 Election Day (and into the night) debacle with long lines of frustrated voters and ballots that didn’t print correctly, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors announced its intention to get to the bottom of the countless snafus. “This Board of Supervisors has always been committed to continuous improvement. When things don’t work, we find out why. Today we are announcing an important step in our efforts to get to the bottom of the printer issues that affected some Vote Centers,” the board said in a statement.

The board’s bizarre choice to lead the investigation is former Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Ruth V. McGregor, 80, a lifelong democrat. She was appointed to the Arizona Supreme Court in 1998 by Republican Gov. Jane Dee Hull, a longtime friend. The women met when they were both teachers married to medical doctors.

Voting for Republicans who could ultimately be in charge of elections is no longer an assurance of integrity, as we’ve seen with Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, an opportunistic party switcher.

Faulty printers created ballots that were too light to be processed by some tabulators and caused backups at polling places on general election day and into the night. Despite problems with the ballots, the county claimed all votes were counted, and everyone who stayed in line at polling places was given the opportunity to vote.

Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates, elected as a Republican, called a recent court ruling against GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, “A win for Arizona voters and American democracy.”

Maricopa County Republicans need a new crop of candidates, who actually possess conservative principles.
