AZ child pornographer given 60 year sentence

Missing information: Citizenship status of Josue Eduardo Cota

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona is to be commended for its part in the dual nation investigation leading to its successful prosecution and conviction of this perverted monster, though a key piece of information is missing. What is his immigration status?

Josue Eduardo Cota, 33, a Douglas, Arizona resident and former corrections officer, has pleaded guilty to eight counts of production of child pornography and has been sentenced to 60 years in a case that began with a Canadian investigation. The U.S. investigation in this case was conducted by the Douglas Office Homeland Security Investigation team.

The fact that Douglas is a border town in Cochise County, abutting Mexico, makes Cota’s status relevant. According to the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau report, over 73 percent of residents identified as Hispanic or Latino. Over 65% speak a language other than English in their home. Between 2013 and 2017, a quarter of the population identified as foreign born and 31.9% live in poverty, with a per capita income in the past 12 months (in 2017 dollars) of $15,294. This information leads to the conclusion that a high rate of illegal aliens reside in Douglas. Is Josue Eduardo Cota one of them?

Cota is pictured in this report in the Douglas Dispatch.

The U. S. Department of Justice’s media release can be read here. All involved in apprehending, prosecuting and gaining a conviction of this despicable pervert who sexually exploited young children deserve our gratitude.

Crime is bad but appropriate punishment is worse

February 17, 2019

The hoax of criminal justice reform

A recently released poll by FWD.us purports to show Arizona voters across the political spectrum support “bold reforms” to the state’s criminal justice system.

The left-wing group refers to a “prison crisis,” rather than accurately calling it a crime crisis.

Public Opinion Strategies which conducted the survey ludicrously concluded only one percent of Arizonans want to spend additional tax dollars on jails and prisons. The obvious conclusion, according to the pollsters, is 99 percent of Arizonans prefer living among violent criminals.

Additionally, the survey farcically claims support for less prosecution of crimes cuts across political party affiliations and demographic groups, with majority support supposedly among victims of crime. The far left group declares its pro-criminal efforts have “bi-partisan” support, the conveniently used buzz word providing cover to radical agendas.

In 2018 FWD.us President Todd Schulte opposed California bill SB10, which he preposterously referred to as bringing “extraordinary harm caused by unnecessary pretrial jailing” and the “requiring of bail.” Bail ensures bondable criminals don’t flee prior to trial. Pretrial incarceration keeps dangerous offenders off the streets.

Among the ill-conceived bills FWD.us’ Arizona proponents have introduced this state legislative session are HB 2245 (Prime Sponsor: Rep. Tony Riverio, LD-21) which allows prisoners to cut an additional 25% percent from their sentences for good behavior and participation in rehabilitation programs, both of which are expected of criminal inmates and HB 2362 (Prime Sponsor: Rep. Ben Toma, LD-22). This bill allows individual judges to determine the punishment if, in his or her opinion, the mandatory minimum sentence is not justified based on “the crime and individual” — ignoring the law and making criminal defendants’ fate a crap shoot depending on the luck of the judicial draw.

FWD.us, is heavily funded to the tune of $100’s of millions by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Open Society Foundation founder George Soros, who has been working behind the scenes to overhaul the U.S. Justice system in his extreme leftist image.

The liberal billionaires lead a host of moneyed, like-thinkers who embrace open borders, spew leftist rhetoric and hire numerous lobbying groups to press their issues with city and state governments and congress. Illegal alien profiteers at the Chambers of Commerce whose members seek cheap, illegal labor are also in the tank for open borders, which is why they so disdain President Donald Trump and his commitment to build a border wall.

These people put criminals and illegal aliens above the safety and security of American citizens.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s lobbying operation alone spent nearly $95 million last year, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. What do you think would be worth that much money and effort?


Illegal aliens’ get-rich-quick scheme: Sue Americans

February 13, 2019

Polls show Americans overwhelmingly support Pres. Trump’s policies

When criminals commit unlawful acts, they are arrested, charged and detained. If they are found guilty in a court of law, they are sentenced to serve a specific jail or prison sentence. Among the hardships they and their families endure is separation. This scenario occurs daily in American cities across the country.

When they are foreign nationals, illegal invaders breaching our sovereign border, increasingly they arrive with children — not always their own. Having children in tow provides them with a sympathetic aura.

Though difficult to believe these uneducated illegals who now arrive by the thousands from Central America, facilitated in the passage of their caravans by our Mexican “neighbors” — have advocates. 

Law firms and a contrivance known as the National Immigration Justice Center are currently representing six illegal alien families, who claim they and the children were traumatized by being separated after the adults were detained.  The children were cared for, fed, kept clean, provided clothes, schooled and in all likelihood, treated better than they’ve previously been. Many of them made the long trek with strangers who claimed to be their parents.

But now the illegal adults, guided by far left organizations, are being represented by D.C. and Philadelphia law firms. They are seeking $3 million for each adult and each child, for a total of $36 million.

These are just the first such lawsuits. They threaten more will follow. Though they claim to be suing the Trump administration, they are in fact, suing us…American taxpayers, already overburdened by $100’s of billions providing them benefits, medical care and educating their kids, according to this 2017 report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). Scroll down to page 4 for a synopsis. Criminals among them are also clogging our court and penal systems.

President Trump opposes the catch-and-release policies at the border, which allow illegal aliens claiming asylum to be released into the U.S. pending a court date that results in many never being seen again.

“We’re going to no longer release. We’re going to catch; we’re not going to release. They’re going to stay with us until the deportation hearing or the asylum hearing takes place. So we’re not releasing them into the community,” President Trump recently stated.

A new Rasmussen Reports national survey finds that 59% of likely U.S. voters think border security is a vital national security interest for the United States.

According to a Gallup poll, more Americans are concerned about illegal immigration than other issues. The numbers spiked from 13% to 21% at the end of 2018.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday, Feb. 12, shows that 50% of likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance.

Those numbers show American’s are paying attention. That’s why he draws crowds of thousands to his rallies.


Brittany Zamora: Another sexual predator teacher

January 23, 2019

Had this sexual predator teacher not been caught, she would be receiving the 20% raise gifted by vacillating Gov. Ducey, who ultimately caved to the demands of the striking unionist teachers who abandoned 800,000 AZ students for a week. His move only embolden them to hold taxpayers hostage at their whim.

For years Seeing Red AZ exposed the sexual predators in Arizona’s schools.  These were not people scaling fences to illegally enter the grounds where children were supposed to be getting an education.  The predators we routinely exposed were the teachers entrusted to educating students, not exploit them.  After covering countless members of the leftist teacher’s unions who betrayed the trust of parents and students, we let our coverage of these predators lapse, since it became what we referred to as theEndless Parade.”

This 2013 post exposed the strenuous efforts engaged in by leaders of the nation’s major teachers unions, the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers — objecting to barring such predators from working around school children. They claimed the measure might “jeopardize workers’ protections under union contracts.”

In numerous cases involving teachers or administrators, union officials have negotiated separation agreements with employers, allowing offenders to quietly leave their positions with a letter of recommendation — enabling them to secure jobs in unsuspecting districts — as well as taking a hefty payout with them as they leave.

Today, we’re reviving the topic of predator teachers to introduce Brittany Zamora, 27, a married sixth-grade teacher at Las Brisas Academy Elementary in Goodyear Arizona who repeatedly engaged in sex acts at the school with a 13-year-old boy who was in her class. His parents have filed a lawsuit against the district, where other teachers and students were aware of the inappropriate relationship. Rather than notifying the boy’s parents, Principal Timothy Dickey lectured students about “the dangers of rumors.”

Read their explicit text message exchanges here.

Zamora was arrested at the home she shares with her husband and is being held on $250,000 bond. 

In 2016, Zamora was certified to teach elementary education K-8 in Arizona, according to the Arizona Department of Education’s database, which now notes she has a disciplinary record on file. She was certified to teach Structured English Immersion, a method of rapidly teaching language skills to non-English speakers. Obviously, she’s found a universal language that bypasses the mundane teaching practices. 

Brittany Zamora has been booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail, charged with 8 counts of sexual contact with a minor, Class 2 felonies; 2 counts of child molestation, Class 2 felonies; and I count of transmitting obscene material, a Class 4 Felony. She is scheduled for a status conference on March 29 and a preliminary hearing April 2, 2019.

 


Pres. Trump’s (sub) mission plan

January 19, 2019

Following a historic naturalization ceremony in the White House on Saturday, President Donald Trump addressed the issue (video) of the partial government shutdown and the nation’s need of a border wall.

All along, the president has remained steadfast, noting there can be no border security without the wall. He previously stated, “I remain ready and willing to work with Democrats to pass a bill that secures our borders, supports the agents and officers on the ground, and keeps America safe. Let’s get it done! Sadly, there can be no REAL Border Security without the Wall!”

The Administration has requested $5.7 billion for construction of approximately 234 miles of new steel barrier on the southern border. Intransigent Democrat Leaders, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have refused to discuss wall funding, although Democrats strongly supported even greater expenditures prior to the Trump presidency. This is the senate vote on the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which overwhelmingly passed with bi-partisan support by 80 – 19.  Now Pelosi dismisses Trump’s proposal as a “non-starter.”

President-elect Donald Trump unequivocally stated he would terminate DACA, (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), an executive order — bypassing congress — signed into law by Obama in 2012. It originally provided an exemption from deportation and a renewable two-year work permit, but it’s end theme is full-blown amnesty and American citizenship. Center for Immigration Studies provides facts and figures.

Now President Trump is in deal making mode, offering a DACA giveaway in exchange for wall money. Extortion is a crime. Capitulating to extortionists is reckless lunacy engaged in by those backed against a wall — in this case not metaphorically.  Vice President Mike Pence and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who are watching the polls and not taking the pulse of Republican voters, are reportedly behind this preposterous capitulation scheme.

When originally proposed, those applying for the gift of U.S. citizenship needed only to affirm they were 16 years of age or younger when they initially entered the United States and were currently 35 years of age or younger. With the passage of time, it’s safe to assume the ages have changed to accommodate the applicants. They have to declare that they have been persons of good moral character since initially being brought to the U.S. as children by their parents — illegally. Verifying how many came as babes in arms or ably propelled themselves over the border last year at age 35 is impossible to substantiate. Many are now grandparents. They will also be voters, most assuredly in the Democrat camp. 

President Trump’s most fervent supporters voted for him because of his promise to build a wall to secure the USA from invasion and crime.  The invasion continues and crime is rampant.

If he moves forward with this capitulation, he will not win the Democrats, but he will lose his base.


More bull from the Senate’s “Sell Out Six”

January 11, 2019

Leftist media mischaracterize border wall as “Trump’s.”  It’s OURS!

Here we go again. Compromise to Republicrats and Leftists always includes provisions for granting amnesty to illegal invaders.  It’s the old song and dance that John McCain and Jon Kyl peddled for years, followed by the same two-step with performers McCain and Flake, as we noted back in 2013. McCain minced no words telling us we had to accept amnesty.

In its latest incarnation, there’s a new component added to the mix. It’s the reliable magician’s trick of misdirection, which falls flat when wily senators rather than David Copperfield are on stage. Cunning and deceit are not showstoppers.  Americans are weary of the porous border, its accompanying crime and the lies being proffered to cover the deception.

Six RINO Senators including Lindsey Graham,(SC); Thom Tillis,(NC); Lamar Alexander,(TN); Rob Portman,(OH); Lisa Murkowski,(AK); and Susan Collins,(ME) are swaying and swooning to the ludicrous amnesty and farcical DACA tune, as they play to their business class campaign donors desirous of cheap labor.

Then Presto! Graham has an epiphany, issuing this statement chiding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for “her refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier — even if the government were to be reopened”… opining, “It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier.”

Earlier Graham concluded that under a potential deal “the president gets his security funding and can add some things to the mix that would draw some bipartisan support.” 

Let’s get this single fact straight: Making deals with the devil makes you a demonic pawn.  Graham, a member of the infamousGang of Eight,” was integral to the many versions of McComprehensive Immigration Reform, despised by American citizens. Their frustration set the stage for the presidency of Donald J. Trump, who fully comprehended the level of discontent and remains keenly aware that border security is national security.  

Graham obviously missed the fact that Pelosi said there will be no funding for any type of border barrier — although she does make her priorities clear. The ability to fund killing human babies remains paramount, yet national security is “immoral.”

It’s time to put the numbers in perspective. The Immigration Reform Law Institute’s 2017 study revealed illegal immigration to the U.S. costs federal, state and local taxpayers a staggering net cost of $116 billion a year — an increase of $16 billion compared to previous estimates. Consider the relative costs as the Washington Post reports today that “another caravan of illegal invaders is forming in Honduras, with plans to embark next week on a journey that will once again test the immigration policies of Mexico and the United States.”


Dem donor Ed Buck, 2 dead men and counting & Update

January 10, 2019

The news has been rife with coverage of Ed Buck, an LGBTQ activist and Democrat donor, who has a strange penchant for having men die in his Hollywood apartment. Law enforcement officials have opened an investigation into the most recent death, which comes a year-and-a-half after Gemmel Moore, 26, a black gay male escort, died in 2017 of a methamphetamine overdose in Buck’s home. Moore was described as “homeless” by his mother. The latest man to die in Buck’s home is 55-year-old Timothy Dean, another black man not known to have been a drug user.

This Los Angeles Times article citing the coroner’s report describes the bizarre circumstances surrounding Moore’s death, reporting, “Buck was found with a dead, naked house guest who died of a methamphetamine overdose while watching male porn on a mattress on Buck’s living room floor.” Inconceivably, no charges were filed against Buck in that death after the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office found insufficient evidence against him. They are now reinvestigating the death. 

Candidates Buck deemed worthy of his generosity included former President Obama, 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Arizona’s newly elected chameleon Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, the first self-declared bisexual elected to the U.S. Senate.  She previously represented AZ Congressional District 9. Before that, Sinema was a twice losing Green Party candidate for the state legislature, finally winning a seat when she switched allegiance to the Democrat Party.

Buck, 64, whose actual name is Edward Bernard Peter Buckmelter, is far more than just a casual Arizona political participant. In 1987, shortly after Gov. Evan Mecham’s inauguration, Buck had already organized a recall against the conservative businessman. Mecham won the governor’s race after a momentous primary victory he was belittled for entering. He trounced the stunned longtime Arizona House Speaker Burton Barr who was heavily favored to win in the three-way race that also included an affluent former Democrat who ran as an Independent.
