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.


U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar sponsors 10-year moratorium on immigration

July 27, 2021

As the Biden administration dismantles the border wall President Trump was erecting along our southern border, allowing unparalleled numbers of illegal aliens to enter the United States, Arizona Republican Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S. (CD-4) is doing more than shaking his head in disbelief. Be sure to read the explanatory statement he has issued after introducing legislation providing a 10-year moratorium on all immigration into the United States. Gosar’s bill is H.R.4643.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) provides the latest number of what it euphemistically refers to as ‘Criminal Noncitizen Statistics’ for Fiscal Year 2021. In addition to the crime of illegally invading our country, these are people who have a history of criminal convictions — often multiple convictions — ranging from homicides, drug trafficking, sexual offenses, deadly drunk-and-wrong-way drivers and numerous categories in-between. Unaccompanied minors are often transported by depraved pedophiles who continue their obscene criminality once here.

During May and June of this year alone, nearly a half million illegal aliens were encountered by CBP. These numbers peaked during the COVID-19 pandemic, yet the illegals are neither detained nor checked for the virus as they are transported across the United States for resettlement. The statistics for FY 2021, are mind-boggling with 1,277,722 illegal entries up to June.

Arizona is fortunate to have a resolute patriot such as Congressman Paul Gosar addressing the harsh realities to which too many others turn a blind eye.


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.


Associated Press gives official pass to criminals

July 13, 2021

News agency will no longer cover “not newsworthy” crimes

Associated Press is back to its old tricks, determining what is now too offensive for general consumption while attempting to manipulate American’s attitudes via language. It has become the self-appointed arbiter of communication, with no one to challenge its leftist perspective. SRAZ has written about the agency’s overreaches intended to cunningly alter the vantage point of readers, now utilizing loaded language techniques while ignoring minority perpetrated criminality.

In 2019 AP reporters were instructed on retooling language in an effort to reconfigure opinions. In 2021 deceitful word manipulation has become even more emboldened. We noted at the time that what was once heralded as the free press, has grotesquely transmogrified to purveyors of mind control. This is an important link which is worth your time.

Claiming its mission is to “inform the world,” and “setting the industry standard for ethics in journalism,” AP boasts it’s been on the scene since 1846. Its former rival United Press International (UPI) has all but dried up and bitten the dust.

AP’s latest gambit is deeming certain names too objectionable to be seen in print. Naming crime suspects or showing mug shots of minority criminal perpetrators is now considered racist, although their presumably loving mothers bestowed the monikers on them.

John Daniszewski, AP’s Vice President for Standards, ignores the fact that crime stats are highest among minority perpetrators, since that doesn’t fit into the leftist perspective as it skews the news. He writes, “The names of suspects are generally not newsworthy beyond their local communities. We will not link from these stories to others that do name the person, and we will not move mug shots in these cases, since the accused would be identifiable by that photo as well. We also will stop publishing stories driven mainly by a particularly embarrassing mug shot, nor will we publish such mug shots solely because of the appearance of the accused.”

In a world inhabited by leftists even those calling themselves “journalists,“ charged with delivering the news, showing or naming the perpetrator is now racist or too embarrassing.

It’s worth considering if John Daniszewski would be so generous if either he, his wife or children were brutally victimized by those whose violent crimes he is intent on ignoring.


Biden nominates “humanitarian” Cindy McCain as ambassador

June 24, 2021

It comes as no surprise that Pres. Joe Biden is repaying Republicrat Cindy Lou Hensley McCain for her support of the democrat presidential ticket in 2020. He has nominated her to a Rome-based ambassadorship to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture.

Though she was embarrassingly unable to energize any supporters when campaigning for the Harris/OBiden duo, she persevered, due to her visceral jealousy-based hatred of conservative President Donald Trump. He was easily able to attain the presidency that had twice eluded her RINO* husband.

The far left local newspaper, along with democrat Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly have lavished praise on Cindy McCain, repeatedly referring to her as a “humanitarian.” Sinema couldn’t contain her enthusiasm, issuing a statement that noted, in part, that “Cindy McCain is a demonstrated humanitarian…and a terrific choice to combat famine and hunger crises around the world.

It must have slipped Sinema’s mind that “humanitarian” Cindy, then an addict, stole prescription opiates from her own medical aid charity.**

At the January 2021 Statutory Meeting of elected GOP state delegates, Cindy McCain was censured by the elected Republican delegates, replicating the 2014 censure of her late husband John, for his bonding to the left. Still stung by his intra-party rejections, the never-accused-of-being-intelligent Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship heiress tweeted, “It exposes for all to see the reckless selfishness of President Trump and the cynicism of elected Republicans, who defended his unconstitutional effort to cling to power. They have shamed our country, and delighted our enemies.”

Grant Woods, John McCain’s first chief of staff, and later elected as Attorney General as a Republican…who had signed on (click to enlarge) as a Republican for democrat Janet Napolitano…also jumped into “humanitarian” mode as he described Cindy. After years of threatening to reregister as a democrat he finally made good on his promise, to the delight of actual Republicans.

John McCain retaliated against the censuring delegates by working with wealthy out-of-state Obama allies to purge the Arizona Republican activists from their elected though unpaid posts.

Diversity, inclusion go off the rails at MC Attorney’s Office

June 22, 2021

Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel has new mission

In an office whose duty is prosecution of criminals, Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel has, instead, hopped onboard the inclusivity and diversity bandwagon, signing a “unity pledge.”

Recently, the appointed county attorney bizarrely dismissed the charges against the anti-police rioters marauding in downtown Phoenix, issuing this statement:

“It is the decision of this office that it is in the interests of justice to not proceed.”  She concluded her statement with these words: “I believe that just because we can legally pursue charges does not always mean that we should. It is not an easy decision to step away from a case when we believe crimes were committed, but in this case, it is the right thing to do.”

This absurd action emboldening criminality is why she needs to be challenged by someone who understands the difference between a social worker mentality and doing the job of prosecuting criminals and keeping the county safe for law abiding residents. 

Instead there is a new focus. An interoffice email from the MCAO Diversity Committee lavished praise on President Biden for making history by signing a law recognizing Juneteenth as a federal holiday. 

“Hello MCAO Community, the DEI Committee is going to start sending out a “Spotlight on Diversity” email at the beginning of each month.  Starting with July, we will spotlight an MCAO employee, sharing the diversity and value they bring to our office.  If you or someone you know would be a great spotlight, please let us know!”

The email also noted that “June is Pride month, celebrating the LGBTQ+ community, giving its history along with this “Fun fact”: A few years ago, organizers decided it is too hot in Phoenix to have a June parade and festival.  Phoenix Pride parade and festival now happens in early November.”

Included in the email was a list of Inclusion tips:

– Get familiar with the LBGTQ+ spectrum

– Learn terminology

– Use inclusive language in communication (instead of Ladies and Gentlemen, try folks, friends, community members)

– Participate in local events and groups (consider joining the LGBTQ+ ERG as an ally)

– Respect people’s pronouns and names

The tagline on the lengthy memo, announcing monthly messages on this topic, states: “Diversity in itself does not create inclusion — an inclusive environment must be intentionally designed, nurtured, and supported.”

Allister Adel’s selection by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors following the resignation of former Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery when he was appointed to the Arizona Supreme Court was greeted with fanfare proclaiming her as the first female to head the prosecutor’s office. 

She should not have been identified by her plumbing, but by her leftward bent.


Desperate border state Guvs Ducey, Abbott request help…

June 17, 2021

Gov. DeSantis responds

Governors Doug Ducey (R-AZ) and Greg Abbott (R-TX) recently sent this 2-page letter (click to enlarge) to their fellow governors urgently requesting help securing the border that they describe as “a disaster” and “a crisis” ignored by the Biden administration. The two governors cite the Emergency Management Assistance Compact that empowers states to help one another in times of disaster or emergency. It was originally enacted in 1996.

Gov. Ron DeSantis, (R-Fla) was first to respond, stating:

“America’s border security crisis impacts every state and every American. Governors Abbott and Ducey recently sent out a call for help to every state in the nation, needing additional law enforcement manpower and other resources to aid with border security. I’m proud to announce today that the state of Florida is answering the call. Florida has your back.”

When the federal government shows no commitment to protecting our sovereign border or ensuring the safety and security of American citizens, it’s good to know that this crisis is not a back burner issue for governors who have to deal with the illegal invasion by providing benefits to those who wantonly disregard our laws. Rewarding lawbreakers only encourages more of the same, depraved pedophiles and deadly drunk and wrong way driver’s, among them. On March 24, — three months ago — Biden appointed VP Kamala Harris as border czar, but she has yet to give more than lip service punctuated by her notorious cackle, to the border.  Former President Trump has been invited to the border by Gov. Greg Abbott, and will be visiting it again Wednesday, June 30, 2021.

These numbers provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection show the staggering upsurge in illegal alien invaders. Be aware that “encounters” do not translate to “apprehensions.” Illegal crossings have surged by 674% in a year, with 180,034 reported in May.


MC Attorney dismisses charges against anti-police rioters

June 13, 2021

This statement from Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel regarding the dismissal of charges for the Oct. 17, 2020 riot case against Phoenix Police raises far more questions than it answers. Acknowledging the fact that crimes were committed, she then goes on to convolutedly address the issue in the third person, stating, “It is the decision of this office that it is in the interests of justice to not proceed.”

Scrolling through the links following the statement, it appears the Maricopa County Attorney is more attuned to distributing community service announcements than to prosecuting criminality, which is the fundamental duty of the prosecutor’s office in the fourth largest and fastest growing county in the United States.

Phoenix Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Ann Justus stated at the time, “As officers began making arrests, incendiary devices were thrown at them. Due to the ongoing criminal activity and assault, the Phoenix Police deployed less lethal munitions in order to safely make arrests.”

The marauding gangs, using the death of repeatedly incarcerated George Floyd 1700 miles away in Minneapolis, to assault Phoenix Police, faced numerous charges including aggravated assault on officers, criminal damage, unlawful assembly, rioting, resisting arrest and obstructing a roadway. They knocked over barricades, “causing a fully marked Phoenix Police patrol vehicle to sustain damage,” Justus said.

Rioters attempted to conceal their faces from view with black umbrellas as they set off smoke bombs in the road and flung them at officers. When police finally declared an unlawful assembly, they were ignored. Fifteen adults and three teens were arrested.

It was reported that flyers for the protest were posted on social media prior to the rampage, boasting, “Phoenix PD underestimates the power of the people. March with us to occupy Washington Street and remind PD who they serve. We will not stay silent. Until we get justice, Phoenix will have no peace.”

Protests against the police have not been isolated incidents and nationally efforts to defund the police have gained momentum resulting in officers leaving and crime rates rising. Yet these are the people Maricopa County Attorney Adel thinks are worthy of having their charges dropped. Violent rioters do not respond to weakness. It emboldens them.


Lawyer misplaces compassion, finds an absurd platform

June 10, 2021

Leftist newspapers such as the Arizona Republic don’t only despise conservative candidates, elected office holders, voters and opinions; they use their flagging platform to promote their twisted agenda. A recent edition is a case in point.  A third of the editorial page was devoted to a commentary titled, “I watched a gas chamber execution. It still haunts me.”

The author protesting the death penalty is Tempe-based defense attorney Jim Belanger. In1982, his client Donald Eugene Harding was found guilty of the wanton 1980 murders of two businessmen, whose names are too irrelevant for Belanger to mention in his lengthy diatribe. Throughout the article, he refers to the homicidal perpetrator warmly as “Don.” What he focuses on is not the heinous criminality of Harding’s acts but what he refers to as “the indignity of being striped nearly naked, wearing a pair of white, diaper-like under shorts with an electric monitor attached to his chest.” Following the guilty verdict came the appeals, and Harding got a reprieve of another ten years before his 1992 execution. That’s more than his victims Robert Wise and Martin Concannon were accorded. In a separate murder, Harding also killed Allen Gage.

Not noted in Belanger’s account of the 10 minutes it took Harding to die, and how he “wanted to vomit as he wept” misplaced tears, is the fact that Harding spent his last moments cursing at then-Attorney General Grant Woods, another state execution witness and giving him the middle finger.  The final indignity comes from lawyer Belanger who inconceivably compares the death penalty to being “disturbingly like the one the Nazis deployed to murder millions in the Holocaust.”  Belanger is woefully lacking in historical knowledge, Hitler’s victims unlike Harding‘s, were blameless, rounded up and systematically slaughtered in extermination camps for the crime of adhering to their faith. There is no correlation.

Following Harding’s execution, Arizona moved to lethal injection for administering the death penalty.  This is the list of those executed by the state of Arizona since capital punishment resumed in 1976.

The Arizona Department of Corrections inmate database fills in the cavernous holes in Belanger’s tale, including numerous prior convictions and the depravity of Harding’s acts. Harding even had the opportunity to order a last meal. He chose “several fried eggs, several strips of bacon, toast, butter, honey and orange juice.”

That was far better treatment than his innocent victims Robert Wise, Martin Concannon and Allen Gage received. They were bound, gagged, beaten and shot in the head and chest at close range.

If you want unvarnished news, the local newspaper is not a reliable source.


SCOTUS rules illegals do not have a right to Green Cards

June 9, 2021

Sanity prevails in unanimous U.S. Supreme Court decision

The U.S. Supreme Court, in a 9-0 unanimous decision, ruled on Monday that illegal aliens who have been granted temporary humanitarian relief from deportation cannot use the process known as “adjustment of status” to obtain lawful permanent residency in the United States without leaving the country. The court ruled in Sanchez v. Mayorkas that adjustment of status is reserved for those who were inspected at the border and admitted to the United States by an immigration officer, thus disqualifying the majority of those granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS). Justice Elena Kagan, nominated to the Supreme Court by President Barack Obama in 2010, wrote the opinion for the court.

El Salvadoran nationals, Jose Sanchez and Sonia Gonzalez illegally entered the United States decades ago. The U.S. government granted them temporary protection in 2001 when it designated El Salvador as part of the TPS program in the wake of damaging earthquakes in that country.

Sanchez and Gonzalez have maintained TPS status for 20 years, during which Sanchez’s employer filed an immigration-visa petition for Sanchez as a “skilled worker.” Immigration officials approved this petition, authorizing Sanchez to be admitted to the United States as a lawful permanent resident. They simultaneously granted the same approval for Gonzalez.

The U.S. government, however, denied the couple’s subsequent application to use the adjustment-of-status process in order to transition from temporary to permanent residency without leaving the United States. Immigration officials ruled that the couple’s original illegal entry disqualified them from adjustment of status. The government relied on the text of Immigration and Nationality Act Section 1255(a), which restricts the in-country adjustment-of-status process to illegal aliens who were “inspected and admitted or paroled into the United States.”

Notice that the U.S. Law refers to the persons in question as “aliens,” throughout. The words, migrants, undocumented, refugees, and asylum seekers are constructs of the left in describing America’s invaders.

This illuminating commentary, “Illegal Alien”: The Proper Terminology, posted on Federation for American Immigration Reform, by Eric A. Ruark is definitely worth your time.

In 2017 there were an estimated 400,000 people from 12 countries with TPS status. That was likely an undercount, which has no doubt escalated in the intervening years. At the time, they were identified as coming across our southern border from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Myanmar, Nepal, Nicaragua, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen.

In truth, we have no handle on who is illegally invading the United States, and the democrats have no desire to stop the invasion from which they benefit.
