Rapist on train: Here’s the rest of the story…and more

October 23, 2021

Media Research Center’s Newsbusters has “the rest of the story” on the horrifying report that recently surfaced regarding the rape of a female passenger on a Philadelphia train. What news coverage there was focused on the lack of concern shown by blasé fellow travelers who watched the criminal sexual assault and did nothing to aid the victim. Apathy is not a traditional American value, but has gained a foothold when America is being flooded with illegal aliens, who are not imbued with the moral principles that have traditionally undergirded our culture. They cower at calling attention to themselves, concerned that dealing with law enforcement will expose their illegal status.

What was omitted from the reports was who the criminal rapist actually is, and background on his status. Newsbusters refers to Tucker Carlson’s Fox News report on the shocking crime committed by 35-year-old Fiston Ngoy, a Congolese illegal alien, who was released in 2019 by an immigration judge without deportation despite a history of serious offenses. Ngoy was originally in the U.S. on a student visa in 2012. He has not been a student since 2015.

This criminality is not a rarity. Neither is the repulsive apathy. Yet the Biden administration has opened the floodgates to illegals, after tearing down the border wall construction undertaken by President Trump, fulfilling a campaign promise to American citizens.

And while Biden’s surrogates have ordered COVID vaccinations for Americans, unvaccinated illegals surging across our sovereign border have no such mandates as they are transported to American cites across our nation. These are the latest numbers of “encounters,” from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Biden’s handlers have devoted themselves to dismantling the Trump administration’s effective enforcement policies. Vice President Kamala Harris, supposedly in charge of border enforcement, has shown no interest (brief video) in addressing the invasion, since the millions entering illegally are viewed as future democrat voters. The Washington Examiner headlines its recent report, “Illegal immigration soars under Biden to third-highest in 97 years.” Take time to acquaint yourself with the facts of this crisis.

With continually escalating prices, along with food and merchandise shortages, Biden’s approval ratings have fallen from tanking to being in the toilet — with a 42% approval rating. His $3.5 Trillion spending scheme which will indenture future generations of Americans is the “icing” on this putrid cake.

Calif. redefined crime, residents continue to suffer effects

October 14, 2021

Repercussions of non-enforcement of criminality are devastating as repeat offenders, aware there are no consequences for their actions continue their crime sprees

With California’s passage of Proposition 47 in 2014 the theft of less than $950 in merchandise is treated as a nonviolent, non-punishable misdemeanor under state law. This crime can be continually repeated. Ludicrously sold to the voters as the ‘Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act,’ it was ostensibly to divert money from incarceration of criminals to enhancing public schools, which have instead transmogrified into bastions of leftism and Critical Race Theory.

The consequences are even worse than anticipated by law-abiding residents. Not only are customers forced to pay more to make up for the losses, but stores that are unable to remain viable while routinely sustaining thousands of dollars in theft, are closing.

The only winners are the criminals.

Under the proposition’s lax standards, DNA samples are no longer collected from misdemeanor offenders, leading to a constricted DNA database, making it more difficult for law enforcement agencies to solve cold cases, including those involving rape and murder. This was the Prop.47 overview as released by the Legislative Analyst’s Office.

As would be expected, the referendum had the support of the California democrat party, the teacher’s unions, and the American Civil Liberties Union, which donated $3.5 million to support it. Ill-informed state voters passed it into law. Leftists don’t believe punishment deters crime, though the facts indicate exactly the opposite is the case. Today the objects of compassion are the criminal perpetrators, not the victims of their lawless aggression. Proposition 47 passed by 59.6% to 40.4%.

In 1866 Dostoevsky wrote his classic novel “Crime and Punishment” that remained required reading for many of us, when such a quaint concept existed. Despite rising criminality, punishment is passé.

 Calif. recall exemplifies lunacy of the left

September 15, 2021

With a massive list of candidates to siphon votes and virtually guaranteeing a victory for Gavin Newsom in California’s gubernatorial recall, the final numbers were 33.2% (Yes/For the recall) to 66.8% (No/Against the recall).

The entry of Larry Elder, nationally syndicated conservative radio host, book author and columnist with a law degree, energized the rational electorate, but unfortunately “rationality” is in short supply on the left coast.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris traveled from their cloistered retreat of D.C., to make the pitch that, “Larry Elder is the closest thing to Donald Trump as I’ve ever seen.” This foolish allegation was intended to divert attention away from the rising crime rate, homeless crisis and tanking economy. Californians. who are living in an open-border state, are experiencing taxes so high as to make home ownership unattainable for all but the wealthy, yet despite the dismal outlook, democrats remain locked into the political mire.

Newsom’s victory speech was a lesson in braggadocio and entitlement, given by an arrogant man, lacking in basic decorum and decency.

Twenty year memorial of deadly 9/11 terrorist attacks

September 11, 2021

We must never forget or allow ourselves to be duped by leftists with an agenda

The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, were the deadliest attacks on U.S. soil since the December 7, 1941 Japanese stealth “kamikaze” bombing attack of our Pacific fleet in Pearl Harbor that launched the United States into World War II.

Twenty years ago today, on a clear autumn morning at 8:46 a.m. (ET) 2,973 people were murdered by 19 Muslim fundamentalist Al-Qaeda terrorists (photos) who commandeered two commercial airliners and, like their kamikaze predecessors, flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City and a third into the Pentagon, incinerating traveling passengers and themselves as they massacred innocent workers. The death toll includes 40 passengers and crew members aboard the fourth hijacked plane, United 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as courageous passengers stormed the cockpit which had been taken over by the terrorists. Many of them, here on over-stayed student visas, had taken flight training in Arizona to prepare them for their deadly mission.

This is the live 9/11/01 footage from ‘The Today Show’ on NBC as the massacre initially unfolded on air in the early morning hours. (Timeline is available here via Wikipedia.) The show begins with a perfunctory interview about Howard Hughes (which can be scrolled past) when harsh realities eclipsed the chatter. (The clip contains commercials, which can also be bypassed.)

In 2009, just a few short years after the murderous attacks, The American Spectator wrote “Obama’s plan to desecrate 9/11,” by re-branding and sanitizing it into a “National Day of Volunteerism,” obliterating any connection to Muslim murderous hijackers.

Barack Obama’s then-Vice President Joe Biden, is now sitting in the White House and has capitulated to the very terrorist organization that was instrumental in the vicious September 11, 2001 attacks, as he recently launched what can only be called a chaotic and ill-conceived full-scale retreat, while abandoning hundreds of Americans and allies stranded in Afghanistan. Yet Biden has declared victory.  He has done so while leaving the Taliban armed with sophisticated U.S. military equipment and what has been described as more Blackhawk helicopters than the nation of Australia has in its arsenal.

Despite the leftist administration’s desire for contrasting optics — that resulted in the deaths of 13 American service members — as incompetent Biden’s handlers coordinated a hasty withdrawal — Americans should never forget or obscure what this day commemorates.

Child sex slavery: Another result of Biden’s Afghan chaos

September 9, 2021

Under normal circumstances, blaming a barely cognizant, frail and aged man for heinous crimes could be considered as offensive as the crimes themselves. In this case, the man is the President of the United States, the crime is what is euphemistically being referred to as “child brides,” and the perpetrators are older Afghan men being resettled in the United States as refugees. Their “brides” are prepubescent girls.

Yahoo! News, referring to Associated Press’ coverage, has noted that U.S. Customs and Border Patrol along with other agencies, have been encountering this criminal activity, even detailing 60-year-old men with 12-year-old “brides,” and are investigating those reports.

After an exhaustive search of USCBP’s website, that appears to have been scrubbed. There’s no doubt our border agents are kept busy dealing with problems along the porous southern border. We owe them a debt of gratitude for the work they do under demanding conditions.  It would be helpful to have substantiation if they encounter such activities.  Previously, border cameras picked up the horrific sight of two toddler girls being dropped over the border wall by cartel smugglers.

When Donald Trump was president the news was rife with reports of children “separated from their parents” at our southern border. Rarely were the facts of countless children traveling alone reported. Parents in Central America and Mexico often paid drug cartel members $thousands to transport their children to the border where they would connect with illegal alien relatives already living in the U.S. The ultimate expectation was those children, via the sham known as “chain migration,” could sponsor the rest of the family in tandem with another scheme known as “family reunification.”

NumbersUSA is a valuable resource, providing information to equip concerned Americans with the facts.

This Western Journal commentary by Kipp Jones is headlined,Here’s the Sick Tactic Cartels Are Using to Smuggle Members Into the United States.” It’s worth your time.

The left perverts forgiveness, compromises the law

August 28, 2021

Only credentialed psychoanalysts are qualified to analyze what propels certain thoughts or actions. But as observers, it’s difficult to comprehend what would motivate two of Robert Kennedy’s 11 children, one a toddler at the time of his father’s 1968 assassination, to tearfully plead with a California parole board to grant freedom to their father’s assassin, Sirhan Sirhan. Ethyl Kennedy, their mother was pregnant when her husband was gunned down. Another brother, ironically bearing his father’s name, also pled for the release of his father’s murderer. He was 14 when his father was slaughtered and became a drug addict. Despite their fame and wealth, the family was plagued with problems.* Another son died of an overdose.

Douglas Kennedy, the toddler at the time of his father’s murder addressed Sirhan Sirhan with these words:

“I’m overwhelmed just by being able to view Mr. Sirhan face to face. I think I’ve lived my life both in fear of him or his name in one way or another. I am grateful today to see him as a human being worthy of compassion and love.”

Robert Kennedy, Jr. wrote a letter to the board, “Strongly encouraging Mr. Sirhan’s release because of his impressive record of rehabilitation.”

The point of a life sentence is to keep violent offenders from recidivism. Robert Kennedy, Jr. is an environmental lawyer, clearly not familiar with criminal law.

At the time of his murder, New York U.S. Sen. Robert Kennedy was a democrat presidential candidate who had just delivered a victory speech at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles after winning his party’s California primary. President John F. Kennedy, his brother, was assassinated while in office in 1962.

Prosecutors could not oppose “Mr” Sirhan‘s release under a policy imposed by radical leftist Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon, who sides with criminals over law abiding citizens.

Nat’l poll shows Joe Biden dropping like a rock

August 18, 2021

Rasmussen Reports has been providing presidential approval numbers as a weekday ritual since 2003.  Gallup polling, which  curtailed its surveys in 2017, now withholds its information without a subscription, so we take our readers directly to Rasmussen.

The numbers are not good for feeble democrat, Joe Biden. His recent debacle in Afghanistan has as good as kicked him to the political curb as dangerously ineffectual, and caused his administration to spin both a contrived message and wobble uncontrollably. As death and terror reign following his unexpected troop pullout, Biden was even forced to return from his vacation at Camp David, the presidential retreat, and his mouthpiece Jen Psaki  also had to cut short her week-long getaway to deal with the atrocious aftermath.

Joe Biden is obviously ill-equipped to be president of the United States. His weaknesses are numerous, leading with the massive increase in crime, his dangerous commitment to an open border — worsened during the COVID epidemic — and the failing economy coupled with astronomical indebtedness that will encumber future generations indefinitely.

Biden’s disapproval numbers have outpaced any satisfaction with his performance. He is elderly, unable to function without intense coaxing, has fallen several times and is shocking our allies with his inability to comprehend the dire consequences of his lack of necessary action to save American military and Afghan fighters in harm’s way. He’s given free rein to the murderous Taliban, allowing them to commandeer our military equipment and rampage.

Biden’s most recent (Aug. 18, 2021) Rasmussen approval index of -19 can be seen here. These dismal numbers are despite the concerted efforts of the alphabet networks to give cover to Biden, under-report the facts and hide his lies and gaffes.

Leftist AZ newspaper surprisingly vilifies black, dem, female police chief

August 16, 2021

There’s no doubt Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams is in hot water. Though she ticked off all of the politically correct boxes of being the first female to hold that office, in addition to the bonus of being black, Williams is now surprisingly on the receiving end of the local newspaper’s wrath. She was recently suspended for a day, and is facing calls to resign relating to the Phoenix Police Department’s response to the BLM mobs that stormed Phoenix last year that the left portrays as evidence of “system racism.”  Spineless Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel, dropped charges against the criminal mobs ridiculously portrayed as “protesters.”

Jeri Williams is not a political novice. In 2016, Pres. Obama appointed her as a member of the Medal of Valor Review Board. Her husband, Cody, was a Phoenix City Councilman. Although council members, like the mayor, run under the “non-partisan” subterfuge, a fact made all too clear when he was inducted into ‘Arizona’s Democrat Party Hall of Fame.’ In 2007, he was appointed to fill a vacant position as South Mountain Justice of the Peace, a position he has since run for, and to which he has been reelected.

When Jeri Williams was appointed police chief in October 2016, she all but walked on water, though not the first minority to serve as chief. Ruben Ortega held that post from 1980 to 1991. He was followed by Daniel Garcia who led the department from 2012 to 2015.

Highly acclaimed Doeg Nelson, Arizona’s top ranking black police officer, who rose through the ranks to assistant chief, was exceptionally well qualified and widely expected to be the next chief in 1980 before being ambushed by Ortega supporters within the office. They invited Nelson for a celebratory drink after their shift, and then arranged to have him pulled over after leaving, which left Ortega unchallenged.

Ortega’s arrogance along with his chastisement by a Maricopa County Superior Court judge were exposed in this 1991 Phoenix New Times report titled, “The Rise and Gall of Ruben Ortega.”

Joe Biden: NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s “done one hell of a job”

August 14, 2021

Bizarre hair sniffer and inappropriate groper Slo-Joe Biden has called New York Governor Andrew Cuomo who has been forced to resign as he faced impeachment, “the gold standard.” This New York Post report contains yet another reveal of the outrageous arrogance of the man the newspaper describes as “engaging in years of bullying, abuse, harassment, and predatory sexual behavior,” — all of which was corroborated in the NY Attorney General’s 165-page investigative report.


RINO AZ Sen. Paul Boyer and the friends he keeps

August 12, 2021

To say that Arizona State Senator Paul Boyer is unpopular in his district would be the height of understatement. The iffy Republican is known for ignoring the elected precinct committeemen in the district he represents, who helped get him elected. Openly hostile, Boyer never attends the monthly district meetings where he is expected to give legislative updates. It’s no surprise he is currently the subject of a recall within District 20.

This is the recent statement issued by Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States, in which he refers to Paul Boyer as a “RINO” and endorses “highly respected” former State Representative Anthony Kern who is mounting a primary senate challenge to Boyer.

You might wonder what Boyer busies himself with when he isn’t reviling Republicans and the Maricopa County election audit.

National File provides the answer, complete with touchy-feely photographs with Boyer posing with fellow state Sen. Otoniel “Tony” Navarrete, a District 30 Democrat. Navarrete, a 2017 founding member of the Legislature’s LGBTQ Caucus resigned last week after being booked into Maricopa County jail following his arrest by Phoenix Police. During a monitored phone call, police taped Navarrete graphically apologizing to one of his victims.

Navarrete has been charged with seven felonies for having sexual contact with minor boys. If convicted he could serve up to 50 years in prison.

SRAZ has provided this recent timeline.
