Walter Williams details the “greatness of America,” exposes Dem duplicity

June 28, 2020

Amid the contemptible violence being perpetrated in the name of the now martyred career criminal George Floyd, a voice of reason emerges. Walter Williams’ recent column,Insults to Black History,“ will enlighten all who read it. 

Dr. Williams’ final paragraph in the column should whet your appetite for reading it in its entirety:

 “Government should do its job of protecting constitutional rights. After that, black people should be simply left alone as opposed to being smothered by the paternalism inspired by white guilt. On that note, I just cannot resist the temptation to refer readers to my “Proclamation of Amnesty and Pardon,” which grants Americans of European ancestry amnesty and pardon for their own grievances and those of their forebears against my people so that they stop feeling guilty and stop acting like fools in their relationship with Americans of African ancestry.”


Best wishes for a Happy Father’s Day

Fathers take our hands and give us their hearts

With affection and appreciation to all of the Fathers, Dads, Papas and Grandpas who have guided us along the way.

 

As we take the day off to celebrate Father’s Day, we’re gifting our readers with an illuminating column, “BLM at War with America,” by self-described “Unhyphenated American.” Lloyd Marcus. It’s pertinent to these turbulent times.

SCOTUS hurls more havoc at besieged USA

June 19, 2020

Transgenderism given cover of normalcy, illegals magically legalized

This week, the U.S. Supreme Court many of us were proclaiming as turning a corner with two Trump appointees, veered off, instead, into unbridled legal hinterlands.

While Americans are staggering in the wake of a deadly pandemic and cities under siege as marauding bands of thugs use the deaths of now martyred criminals to loot, plunder, demand defunding of police and tear down historic monuments, we are told by the Supremes that we must redefine sexuality.

It’s a load worthy of mythical Atlas, who bore the sky aloft. But instead of a Greek titan of legend, it will be us and future generations who will have to hoist this absurdity.

Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz does as fine a job as we’ve seen explaining what was just thrown at us in this 6-3 opinion in which Justice Neil Gorsuch turned John Robertsish and voted with the court’s liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan, caving to the ACLU legal team. Pres. Trump’s other Supreme Court appointee, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, joined Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas in dissenting.

Read Horowitz’ “SCOTUS decision redefining sexuality will wreak havoc on society.”

Want even more? Horowitz also provides this earlier overview: “Conservatives get massacred by fake ‘conservative’ SCOTUS.”

Legal scholar Mark Levin weighed in on the Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of Univ. of California case, in which the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that DHS’ rescission of DACA was “arbitrary and capricious.” Justices Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, were in the minority as Chief Justice Roberts once again joined with the liberals.

Levin asserted “this week the Supreme Court did more damage to the rule of law and the Constitution than the rioters in the streets.”

Chief Justice John Roberts shiftily contended that “the dispute before the Court is not whether DHS may rescind DACA. All parties agree that it may. The dispute is instead primarily about the procedure the agency followed in doing so.”

DACA is the facile acronym for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a program thrust upon us as an executive action by Barack Obama in 2012. DACA worked hand-in-hand with another scam known as the D.R.E.A.M. Act. The acronym stood for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors. It was introduced as S.1291. The 2002 bill was drafted before the speech police ruled the words “illegal” and “alien” unacceptable, so they were used extensively throughout the bill.

Justice Clarence Thomas’ opinion asserted that the majority decision “must be recognized for what it is: an effort to avoid a politically controversial but legally correct decision.

Renown former Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes is quoted as saying, “The longing for certainty is in every human mind. But certainty is generally illusion.”


Democrats presiding over crime will reelect Pres. Trump

June 18, 2020

Video surveillance shows the unthinkable, but there is hope

Our astute readers have likely seen this shocking video, but it’s worth viewing again. As the chants of “Black Lives Matter,” accompany violence, arson and thuggery across the nation, dividing us as never before, watch as Rashid Brimmage, 31, slams a 92-year-old in the face as he casually passes her on a Manhattan sidewalk in the mid-afternoon. The victim is knocked to the ground, hitting her head on a fire hydrant. 

Brimmage, a recidivist sex offender, who has previously been arrested 104 times and released onto the streets under the lenient judicial system in the democrat run city and state of New York has every reason to be secure in the knowledge that there are no consequences for his brutal actions. He is emblematic of what democrats have to offer.

Pimping for what they insultingly miscalculate as the majority of minority voters, who also want safe neighborhoods, Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced his plans to cut the police budget. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed an executive order recognizing Juneteenth as a paid holiday for state employees. 

The good news is that President Trump is winning the information battle. Conservative Americans — and moderate Americans who want law and order — can’t wait to vote against defunding the police, rioting and appeasement. The Silent Majority is being roused again. 

One of the best political commentaries we’ve read is just out this morning on Townhall. “This Leftist Tantrum Is an Information Operation and Trump Is Winning It,” by Kurt Schlichter.

Do yourself a favor and read it. It will make your day.


Radical AZ Republic promotes obliterating history

June 17, 2020

Always on a mission to change America, the radicals in charge at the gasping-its-last breaths, Hillary endorsing Arizona Republic, aren’t content with indulging the reprehensible riots, looting, arson and missions to defund the police. The latest gem pulled from its seemingly never ending negative view of America, is a push to remove historical monuments.

History is exactly that. It catalogues what came before the present, blemishes as well as spectacular events. History was never meant to be a facade of the optimum, but a catalogue of what brought us to the present. In America, that’s a beacon of hope so magnificent that people give up all they have in their homes of origin to start anew in a land of freedom. We have always welcomed those who legally access our generous immigration process. The newspaper is a strident advocate for the lawless who breech our southern border and later crowd our legal system, as their lawlessness continues following their illegal entry.

Now it has a new tactic to upend America. On the front page is an editorial passing as a news report, headlined, “Calls growing to remove confederate monument,” citing “community leaders,” attempting to pressure Gov. Doug Ducey to remove a plaque. Those who still read the bile-spewing newspaper know that’s code-speak for whichever minority community or Democrat carries the specific message of the moment. It reliably turns to the vicious purveyors of hate at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to bolster its arguments.

Joy Pullmann, writing for the Federalist does a first-rate job of exposing the contemptible tactics used by the SPLC, in5 Reasons The Southern Poverty Law Center Is A Hate-Mongering Scam.” Due to its importance, it is our major link today.  Please read it.

History provides context for today and tomorrow. Obliterating it is identical to the job Winston Smith had in George Orwell’s prophetic best selling book “1984” published in 1949:

Smith was employed as a clerk in the government’s Ministry of Truth Records Department. His job was to rewrite historical documents to align with the constantly changing current political deception. Newspeak, a reduced language became the tool to limit free thought and concepts posing a threat to the totalitarian regime.  Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct was classified as “thought crime,” “crime think,” or “doublethink.”

Smith’s work included manipulating facts, revising newspaper articles and doctoring photographs to remove “unpersons,” the term used to describe people who had fallen out of favor with the party.

Though we conservatives are “unpersons” to the media extremists, our voice remains strong. It’s imperative we continue to use it.


Monumental fail as monuments fall

June 13, 2020

Obliterating our past falsely sanitizes our present and makes a mockery of our future

Paraphrasing President John Adams, history is a stubborn thing. It is what it is, a revealing reflection of all aspects of the past — a teacher like no other.

Students of history know that though societal mores change over time, they remain the foundation of what we strive for as an improved present. Tearing down statues is the reprehensible equivalent of Nazi book burning. Renaming military bases, the latest obsession of the left, is insanity based in ignorance. There is even a movement to alter the full name of northeastern Rhode Island, which few outside of the nation’s smallest state, founded in 1636, have ever heard and has nothing to do with slavery.

The anti-white hatred, fueled by the needless death of a man with a lengthy criminal history, has even found a foothold in England, where radical protesters, deceptively described in the press as “far-right” are attempting to remove statues including that of WWII heroic Prime Minister Winston Churchill. It has previously been defaced with the word, “racist,”by the historically ignorant. Current Prime Minister Boris Johnson correctly called it “absurd and shameful” that the monuments were at risk.

Do yourself a favor and readThe Monumental Campaign to #CancelAmerica,by conservative author and commentator Michelle Malkin. Her words represent reason in a sea of cultural absurdity and are definitely worth your time.


Lawlessness takes root in Dem run cities & Update

June 12, 2020

America’s education establishment, controlled by Leftists, bears responsibility      

As Antifa political thugs take over American cities rioting, looting and now toppling historic monuments, it’s important to recognize that many ot the anarchists who align with the group identify as communists and socialists. Yet their goal far supersedes advancing a political agenda. Instead, they are committed to obliterating those they consider fascists, — mainstream American citizens, often conservative Republicans.

Under-educated in today‘s far left public schools, they abhor law enforcement, our legal system and public institutions, and justify using violence to prevent law abiding Americans from exercising such constitutionally enshrined First Amendment rights as free speech or public assembly. As far back as 2016, the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities asdomestic terrorist violence.”

Many are young, members of Generation Z, lacking memory of events we considered transformative, such as September 11, 2001 and not having it, or basic American history included in school curriculum. In seizing six city blocks of Seattle, (Hannity video) including the now abandoned police department, which they have renamed CHAZ* (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone) the mob is now in control. 

Their List of Demands is preposterous, illustrating their abysmal lack of understanding the fundamentals of what has made America a beacon of hope since the Declaration of Independence was ratified on July 4, 1776.

Though many Americans are riveted, watching the raw hubris exemplified by aggression and hostility to what has made America great, focus should be directed to the fundamental causes.  Teachers unions have been donors to the radical left for decades and the proliferation of fatherless homes have corresponded to the increase in crime.

To more fully comprehend the depth of the left’s tentacles into the educational demise, read the enlightening,Witness to Public Schools Brainwashing,” posted on American Greatness. It’s an outstanding insight.

*As of June 14, 2020, the lawless area has been renamed Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) by the mobsters who have not only not been forcibly removed from the 6-block area, but the city of Seattle has caved in to their outrageous demands providing no inducement to leave. Instead of removing these lawless squatters, the radical leftist city leaders, whose priorities are skewed, have brought in portable toilets and are supplying them with free food, as businesses in the multi-block area remain shuttered and their owners suffer.


Exposing the farce of “systematic racism”

June 10, 2020

This fact-filled article, “Mass Police Brutality Isn’t the True Plight of Black Americans,” by Dr. Walter E. Williams, a black professor of economics at George Mason University, is guaranteed to make us smarter — though not a match for Dr. Williams, as you‘ll see when you read his extraordinary bio.

He notes the significant political power black Americans currently have at all levels of government. He also details the correlation between abysmal educational scores in Democrat-controlled cities — despite their large, and growing, school budgets. Williams zones in on the violent crime levels in cities run by Democrats, naming the cities.

Take a few minutes to acquaint yourself with the facts. You’ll be glad you did.


Leftist lunacy reaches fever pitch

June 8, 2020

Latest gambit: Though blacks make up approximately 15% of the population, they are now demanding that stores carry 15% of black owned brands as George Floyd is all but forgotten

We’ve all heard the adage: “The inmates are running the asylum.” Minneapolis proves it true as the majority of its city council, filled with self identified “activists,  artists,” a transgender woman, homosexuals and pro-abortion zealots have voted to dismantle the police.

Nine of the council’s 13 members, which includes not a single Republican, appeared with militants at a rally Sunday, vowing to end policing as the city currently knows it. Council member Jeremiah Ellison, son of the Minnesota’s Attorney General Keith Ellison, declared the council would “dismantle” the department.

“It’s clear that our system of policing is not keeping our communities safe,” Lisa Bender, council president, said. Bender declared that she and her colleagues were committed to “to end policing as we know it and recreate systems that actually keep us safe.”

When Mayor Jacob Frey tried walking a fine line on the issue of defunding and dismantling the police department, said, “I do not support the full abolition of the police department,” he was met with raucous shrieks ofShame, shame shame!”

In a related example of leftist lunacy, the New York Times’ editorial page editor has resigned following an op-ed by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), in which he advocated using federal troops to quell national protests that have destroyed property leaving devastation in their wake.

The newspaper announced Sunday that James Bennet, who had overseen the Times’ opinion pages since 2016, had stepped down “effective immediately.”

Sen. Tom Cotton’s op-ed, titled,Send in the Troops,” in which he advocated for the use of US military troops to quell civil unrest, and indicated the president would be justified in doing so under the Insurrection Act of 1807which empowers the President of the United States to deploy U.S. military and federalized National Guard troops within the United States in particular circumstances, such as to suppress civil disorder, insurrection and rebellion.

Past presidents have used the Insurrection Act, sending military to Southern states to ensure court-ordered desegregation of schools in the 1950s and 1960s, and at the request of several states to suppress riots in 1968. It was most recently used in 1992, when troops were sent to Los Angeles after Gov. Pete Wilson sought federal intervention during the Los Angeles riots which resulted in 63 deaths, 2,383 injuries and 12,111 arrests, following rioting, looting and arson, resulting in an excess of  $billion in destruction over charges of police brutality. The chaos arose from a prolonged traffic chase and beating of a black DUI motorist resisting arrest which he knew violated the terms of his parole in his latest robbery conviction.

The mob later turned on an uninvolved white truck driver, pulling him out of his vehicle in an intersection and seriously battering him with cement blocks.

Sen. Cotton’s op-ed caused a revolt among Times reporters, with some protesting staff calling in sick. The Times later wrote that a review found that the op-ed did not meet its standards. The newspaper’s solution? Reducing the number of op-eds! Opposing views to those of the far left Times are intolerable in what Americans have naively regarded as the unbiased press.

The NY Times, like the biased and seriously failing Arizona Republic, stand as examples that it is not a double standard we face, but rather no standard that deviates from grinding Leftism.


Dems prefer chaos, anarchy to law enforcement

June 6, 2020

Under bizarre conditions, police should preemptively pull back to show their value to maintaining law and order

The Thin Blue Line symbolically represents the men and women of law enforcement who hold the line between order and chaos. They have dependably responded when citizens call 911, and routinely put their own lives in jeopardy (Officer Down site lists officer deaths by state) when criminality occurs.  Now in the wake of the death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd, officers across the nation are being vilified and mobs of rioters given cover by Democrat mayors, calling for defunding and dismantling police departments.  Multi-millions of dollars of damage and destruction in the form of thugs looting, and wantonly committing arson — even here in Arizona — has been overlooked.

It would be interesting to see what would happen if the police preempted the thugs and elected leftists who have decided that chaos is preferable to order and staged a national “blue-out.”

Nearly a decade ago Ann Coulter, best-selling author and conservative commenter, prophetically used these words in her book,Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America

“The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic. The Democratic Party activates mobs, depends on mobs, coddles mobs, publicizes and celebrates mobs — it is the mob. Sweeping in its scope and relentless in its argument, Demonic explains the peculiarities of liberals as standard group-think behavior. To understand mobs is to understand liberals.”
