Jarrett Maupin sinks ever lower in quest to achieve notoriety

September 25, 2016

Some people aspire to heights thought to be beyond their reach. Undeterred, they work diligently to attain their ambitions. It’s inspiring to see the results of their efforts, achieved through a combination of unrelenting resolve, effort and determination. Observing such people achieve their goals, plants the seeds for success in others.

Then there’s Jarrett Maupin, a never-was and likely never-will-be. In his teens, he emulated the notorious Al Sharpton, even placing the word “Reverend” before his name though he attended no theological institution.  Sharpton, it will be remembered represented Tawana Brawley on false rape claims against four New York men including an assistant District Attorney and a police officer. The hoax was a major story in 1987 potentially ruining the lives of innocent men.

In November 2008, Maupin, then 21, was arrested for filing a false report. The previous year he ran against Mayor Phil Gordon but was bumped from the race after the County Clerk’s Office determined that nearly 185 of the nominating petition signatures needed to assure Maupin’s spot on the ballot were collected by convicted felons, invalidating them.

In retaliation, Maupin lied to Maricopa County Sheriff’s investigators and the FBI presenting them with a list of witnesses who had supposedly seen video evidence of Mayor Gordon committing sex crimes with a child. Five investigators were assigned to the case and spent eight months conducting an investigation,

But when detectives interviewed the so-called witnesses, all denied knowledge of any criminal activity by Gordon and any evidence that would support Maupin’s vicious and baseless allegations. According to this report in the local newspaper, Maupin faced 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $2,500, but got off easy with five years probation and 75 hours of community service.  Later in 2011, the contemptible Maupin served time in federal custody for violating the terms of his probation in the 2009 conviction, and was given 36 months of supervised probation upon release — another slap on the wrist.

Another example of Maupin’s race baiting tactics occurred in the 2013 Phoenix City Council race, where he used vicious racial slurs against a Democrat female candidate who had the temerity to run for a council seat though not black. She won despite his attacks.

These days Maupin, the self-declared, jobless “civil rights activist” is trying to capitalize on the aggressive behavior of the Black Lives Matter goons who are creating havoc in cities across the U.S. falsely alleging widespread institutionalized police brutality. In July he tied up rush hour traffic at 24th Street and Camelback. Police thwarted his threats to block Interstate 10 in Phoenix.

His latest gambit is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday, with protesters blocking the Mill Ave. Bridge in Tempe. He refers to this planned debacle as “Blockade on the Bridge: Moral Monday Action.”

It’s safe to say, Jarrett Maupin wouldn’t recognize moral actions if they sat on his now-shaved head. 


Selective news coverage fuels race-based riots

September 24, 2016

Skewing the news has consequences

The shooting of Keith Lamont Scott by a police officer in Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday has fueled riots and looting by vandals. We have repeatedly witnessed such incidents used as an excuse for violent, marauding gangs to take to the streets to steal and destroy property as they ostensibly protest police.

Gov. Pat McCrory was forced to declare a state of emergency. Several hundred members of the N.C. National Guard and State Highway Patrol troopers were sent to Charlotte to maintain order after ongoing violence. Obama’s U.S. Justice Department sent Community Relations Service staffers who specialize in communities in crisis to Charlotte. Numerous businesses advised employees to work from home to avoid the hazards.

Scott, 43, a black man, was fatally shot Tuesday afternoon. The officer who shot him, Brentley Vinson, 26, is also black.

According to the newspaper account, police said Scott held a handgun as he got out of a car, though others claimed he was merely reading a book. Police said they found a gun but no book at the scene.

It took thirteen reporters at the Charlotte Observer to write this account of events. Which of them, we wonder, decided it was appropriate to have readers wade through 29 paragraphs before revealing the 26-year-old officer involved in the shooting is also black? If the officer who fired the fatal shots was white, it would have been in the headline and first paragraph. Why was there no mention of Kevin Scott’s lengthy criminal history which would rightfully make the officer wary?

What does the grotesque practice of looting and destruction of other people’s property have to do with protests? Drugstores, hotels, restaurants, the NASCAR Hall of Fame, an entertainment complex and even the United Way building were among multitudes of properties ransacked and vandalized.

Gateway Pundit reveals the intricacies of the Democrat Machine at work in the rioting and the Black Lives Matter thuggery.  Black Trump supporter Taurus Rachel calls out Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and McCain funder George Soros.  Powerline exposes the criminal history of Kevin Scott, blandly described in newspaper accounts as a kindly father of seven. The articles are well worth your time.


“Coordinated” attacks: Don’t call them terrorism

September 19, 2016

Despite increased evidence of terrorism, political correctness still reigns supreme

Over the weekend mayhem erupted in several unrelated locations. A bomb placed in a construction dumpster in New York City’s Chelsea district Saturday night injured 29 people, blowing out windows and causing numerous evacuations of nearby buildings. Though NYC’s leftist Mayor Bill de Blasio conceded the explosion was an “intentional act,’’ he waffled on any connection to terrorism until his appearance this morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”  It’s certainly leaning more in the direction that this was a specific act of terror.

“A specific act of terror?”

Three hours after the blast, a second device was found four blocks away, a pressure cooker that investigators also identified as a bomb. Pressure cookers were used by the Boston Marathon bombers, killing three people and injuring at least 264 others — many seriously — on April 15, 2013. A pressure cooker device was also used in a failed jihadist plot to attack New York’s Times Square in 2010.

Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, a naturalized citizen from Afghanistan, sought in connection with this NYC bombing is thought to be part of a terror cell. He was captured this morning following a shootout with police, after being identified by his cell phone left at the at the site of the unexploded pressure cooker.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo noted that the explosion hadn’t been linked to an international terrorist group, but rightly concluded, “A bomb going off is generically a terrorist activity.” Cuomo missed the point that terrorism doesn’t have to  have international roots. Homegrown terrorism is a reality.

Barack Obama, who referred to the Fort Hood massacre as “workplace violence,” has remained mute. In 2010, Nidal Hasan, a devout Muslim U.S. Army major and psychiatrist, slaughtered 14 people (one an unborn child) and wounded 30 on the Texas Army base, as he shouted “Allahu Akhbar!” (Allah is greater!)

For unadulterated foolishness, this takes the cake:  Saturday evening police responded to calls of multiple shootings and stabbing victims inside s mega-complex shopping mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota. This BNO news coverage should be in the running for the Politically Correct Award of the Year for reporting, “It was not immediately clear whether the stabbings were linked to terrorism.”  This followed St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson saying, “The individual made some references to Allah and we have confirmed that he asked at least one person if they were Muslim before he assaulted them.”

An explosion shook the Elizabeth, New Jersey train station early Monday, where local and federal authorities were investigating a suspicious package. The blast went off as a bomb robot was examining a device inside a backpack under the train tracks around 12:40 a.m. Information was still sketchy in this NJ.com 1:20 AM report.

Micah Halpern, writing for the Observer cogently sums the reluctance to call terrorism by its rightful name in this commentary, “Explosive Language: Call the New York Bombing Terrorism Already.

Along with calling terrorism by its rightful name, we finally need to shut down immigration from terror sponsoring nations. Obama is flooding the U.S. with hundred of thousands of unable to be vetted “refugees,“ and Hillary Clinton has pledged to continue this self destructive lunacy.

Political correctness be damned.

 


Kellyanne Conway’s undo influence on Donald Trump

August 29, 2016

Trump’s post-election speech in Phoenix

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is scheduled to deliver a major address in downtown Phoenix on Wednesday, Aug. 31. His speech, a day after the Arizona Primary Election, is expected to be two-pronged, focusing on both “post-primary unity,” and illegal immigration policies under a Trump administration. As a border state Arizona has long been the acknowledged major portal for smuggled people from myriad countries and illicit contraband, including drugs that make their way into our neighborhoods.

Arizona Republicans are eager to hear Donald Trump address their concerns. The “unity” aspect should be interesting since showboater Jeff Flake has publicly stated that “Trump can’t win and shouldn’t win.” Facing a tough electionJohn McCain, has remained somewhat more circumspect.

The influence of vice presidential nominee Mike Pence and newly appointed campaign manager Kellyanne Conway appears to have made it increasingly unclear where Trump stands on the issue that moved him to the front of the 17-candidate pack — leaving his spokeswoman Katrina Pierson to stammer, “He hasn’t changed his position on immigration. He’s changed the words that he is saying.”

Conservatives can’t afford to lose sight of the full-circle fact that in 2014 Kellyanne Conway, who previously worked with then-Congressman Mike Pence, made the case to Republicans that the party should embrace a comprehensive immigration bill and legal status for illegals, blandly referred to as “undocumented immigrants.” Conrad, a strategist and pollster, signed on to this FWD.us memo that concluded, among other items, that “Americans overwhelmingly believe the immigration system in the country is broken and that Congress should take immediate action to fix it. “  In fact, America’s generous legal immigration system is not “broken” at all.  Only the will to enforce it is. FWD.us is a construct of liberal billionaire Mark Zuckerbergpushing the fallacy that “we are a nation of immigrants.” In fact, we are a nation of citizens.

On a related note, it’s good to see Immigration Counters back online. The go-to source for more reliable numbers than the stagnant 10 – 11 million we have been told are in our country illegally for the past decade. The absurd undercounts don’t reflect births or additional people stealthily crossing into the United States on a daily basis. 


Why the disconnect in reporting Islamic terrorism?

July 23, 2016

Obama in a permanent dissociated state

Friday we watched in horror as news networks reported an assassin’s rampage through a shopping mall in Munich, Germany — slaughtering shoppers and specifically targeting teens at a McDonald‘s. At last report, 9 were dead and 27 wounded, some critically. He used an online ruse of free food to specifically lure the victims.

The same news sources were quick to point out — lacking any definitive evidence — that it was unlikely the cold-blooded murderer was an ISIS related terrorist. We were told “the motive remains unclear.”

Later the UK’s Daily Mail quoted witnesses as saying the gunman identified himself as German and screamed “Allahu Akbar” before the massacre — the two-word Allah praising calling card of the radical Muslim cowards who casually take the lives of innocent strangers with the intent of terrorizing Westerners. The 18-year-old assassin, who turned his weapon on himself,  held dual Iranian and German citizenship.

This is Barack Obama’s take (brief video) on the ISIS inspired violence that has invaded Western Europe and the United States at breakneck speed on a nearly daily basis.

In criminal cases defense attorneys representing those accused of heinous crimes have occasionally claimed the defendants were in a dissociated state when they committed their vicious acts. In a notorious trial in Phoenix predating O.J. Simpson’s, that defense was successfully used, when the murderer claimed to be sleepwalking as he repeatedly stabbed his wife to death.

Barack Obama’s disconnect when he says, “The world is less violent than it has ever been,” makes it clear he’s been sleepwalking through the past 8 years of his presidency, unable to utter the words “jihad” or “radical Muslim extremist,” in the face of ample evidence to the contrary.


Black Lives Incite: 3 more police officers killed today & UPDATE

July 17, 2016

More despicable police carnage is being reported in Louisiana, where three Baton Rouge officers have been slaughtered and others wounded as they were ambushed not far from police headquarters. A witness described the cowardly assassin as dressed in black with his face covered, who targeted the officers, firing indiscriminately around 9 a.m. Sunday. This comes on the heels of the New Black Panthers arrival in Baton Rouge last Saturday to form a new chapter in protest of an officer-involved shooting death.

This is what we get when good faith attempts are made to negotiate with loathsome race-baiting phonies, such as emboldened Jarrett Maupin, here in Phoenix — who stages traffic blockages and issues 12-point demands to the Police Department.
Update-tag
The U.K.’s Daily Mail has complete coverage on the ambush of police officers in Baton Rouge.

Gateway Pundit carries the shocking report that just days ago Barack Obama invited radical Black Lives Matter leader and professional agitator DeRay McKesson — with links to George Soros — to the White House following his arrest the previous weekend. This is a must read article.

Obama’s statement today included this intriguing choice of words: “It’s important that everyone focus on uniting the country.”  In fact, it’s been Obama himself, who has taken sides in every instance of racial unrest, stirred the pot and encouraged the radicals. The presidential election can’t come soon enough. Donald Trump’s message of “Make America great again” has an urgency.


Media stoke savagery, then ask how to talk about it

July 12, 2016

American media sources — print, radio, television and digital — whose stock in trade is turning events into the English language for public consumption, should know all too well the powerful impact of words.

Yet it persists in misusing language. Most often the sentence construction and turn of phrase is intended to incite or sway opinion to the left.

The left-wing Arizona Republic newspaper, which makes no effort at delivering unbiased information, gets it wrong again. But this time it is indefensible regardless of one’s political vantage point.

Monday’s Page One article about the calculated ambush-style shooting that left five Dallas police officers dead and 11 wounded, is titled, “How do we talk about the tragedy?” Let’s be clear.  What took place in Dallas and in other cities where police have been subjected to death threats, targeted and mowed down is not “a tragedy,” which most people regard as an unavoidable misfortune.  It is terrorism. Barbarism rooted in evil. It is hate crime, personified. 

Black Lives Matter is not a “movement.” It is radical thuggery condoned at the highest levels of the Obama regime, from the words spoken by the man who sits in the Oval Office to U. S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch as she tells those who support the shooters and deliberately clog city highways — blocking traffic, emergency vehicles and access to businesses for hours, “Do not be discouraged.”

The term ”community” has also taken on a new meaning. Rather than relating to the community in which we all live, it’s defined by the ethnicity of the person using the word. According to Breitbart, the New Black Panthers now have a plan to form their own nation within the USA. 

The election of Barack Obama set the stage for the deepening racial divide. We screwed up in 2008 and again in 2012. We better get it right in 2016. America’s future is at stake.
