Action Alert: Phx City Council considers BLM mural

September 4, 2020

When the news got out that a “Black Lives Matter” mural was being considered in downtown Phoenix, the Phoenix City Council mysteriously tabled discussion of the proposal brought forth by the Transportation, Infrastructure and Innovation Subcommittee.

This letter, from Deputy City Manager Mario Paniagua, tweeted by District 6 Councilman Sal DiCiccio, confirms the withdrawal of the item from consideration. Don’t be lulled into thinking this is the end of the matter. The council members need to hear from you. Call their offices. Then call again. They prefer emails that stack up unread. Council members meet in executive sessions, where this mural could be discussed out of public view.

Phoenix city government is a far left bastion in the middle of a red state. Though the mayor and council members deceptively run as non-partisan, their political alliances are widely known. Currently of the eight districts only three have Republican members: Thelda Williams (Dist. 1); Jim Waring (Dist. 2); and Sal DiCiccio, (Dist. 6). Mayor Kate Gallego, who issued this statement calling “Peaceful protests (against the police) valid and important,” is also a Democrat.

All of the subcommittees are dominated by Democrats. The Transportation, Infrastructure and Innovation Subcommittee which proposed the BLM mural meets the First Wednesday of each month at 9:00 am.

Shamefully,Operation Blue Ribbonhas not received news coverage.

Homeowners in north central Phoenix recently put blue ribbons on trees lining Central and 7th Avenue indicating support of our police. We’ve been told city workers removed them. Neighbors replaced them last Saturday and the city swooped in to remove them again. The persistent homeowners are now putting the police supporting blue ribbons on trees in their private yards. This fine idea should be emulated throughout the city.


Rioters admit their goal is establishment of Communist state

August 29, 2020

Given aid and comfort by Democrats, Marxist-Maoist revolution is underway

The undoing of America is a scheme conceived by anarchists intent on terrorizing citizens as they ransack and incinerate stores, torch government buildings, indiscriminately destroy historical monuments and commit murder. In city after city — coincidentally, all run by Democrats who do nothing to stem the violence — mobs have been given free rein as they become increasingly vicious, while calling for defunding and dismantling police departments. Emboldened by the hands-off approach of complicit elected officials in Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Minneapolis, New York, Kenosha, and countless other cities, they now pledge to take their lawlessness to American suburbs.

The left-wing dominated media blandly refer to these violent deviants as peaceful protesters, ralliers and marchers. Democrats Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have not condemned these extremists. They want their votes. In her first speech as Joe Biden’s running mate, Harris actually referred to the mobs, looters and cop killers in the streets as a “coalition of conscience.”

There is an even more brazen plan than inflicting terror. To fully comprehend the overriding strategy, it’s imperative to read, Communizing the USA: ‘Next phase has already begun.’

In the important article posted by Free Press International News Service, Charles “Sam” Faddis, a former CIA operative with 30 years experience in intelligence operations, states:

“We are watching an insurrection in progress, one which uses incidences of police use of force as pretexts, but which has as its goal the destruction of the existing social, economic and political order in the United States.”

Take a few minutes to read this compelling report. Knowledge is power and time is of the essence. Then get busy working for the reelection of President Donald J. Trump, a patriot who values America and is working tirelessly for its continuation as a beacon of liberty.


Phx Art Museum, Walgreens, M-W dictionary view you as bigot

August 21, 2020

It’s time to acknowledge “systemic racism” is a two-way street though you wouldn’t know it if you watched the Democrat National Convention

It’s past time for some personal reflection. You might regard yourself as a decent sort…maybe even exemplary. You’re a churchgoer, routinely go out to lunch with Jamal or Juan and enjoy yourself, coach a minority majority basketball team and even donated days of your sick leave to Mo’Nique when she had emergency surgery and only a day left of her own leave time.

All of those actions put you in a good co-worker category, so it’s no wonder they had a surprise party for you on your birthday.

Now we find there are others who look upon you not with kindness, but suspicion. These entities don’t actually know you and you pay handsomely for their services, yet they not only hold you in contempt, they want you to know it.

You might ask yourself, “What have I done to earn their wrath?”

The answer is not difficult to find. If you enjoy the Phoenix Art Museum and are a member, they’ve already sent you this missive telling you what they find objectionable. Ditto this email you received if you have your prescriptions filled at the neighborhood Walgreens.

Without provocation, they have declared you part of a newly designated  problem known as “systemic racism.”

The Merriam-Webster dictionary recently changed its definition of the word ‘racism’ after receiving an email from Kennedy Mitchum, a young black Duke coed, saying that the definition should include a reference to systemic oppression. An editor responded, eagerly agreeing to update their definition. The change was reported by Forbes’ Diversity & Inclusion editor. Once known as a financial magazine, Forbes now also has a writer who specializes in “LGBT life, identities and being queer.”

Whites have been impacted by reverse discrimination for decades. In 1978, citing evidence that his grades and test scores surpassed those of many minority students who had been accepted for admission to UC Davis School of Medicine while he was rejected, Allan Bakke, a NASA engineer and former Marine officer, charged that he had suffered unfair “reverse discrimination” on the basis of race. He argued this bias was contrary to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution. His case ultimately was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court which ordered Bakke be admitted to UC Davis Medical School, and the school’s practice of arbitrarily reserving 16 seats for minority students was struck down. Read the opinion in the Regents of the University of California v. Allan Bakke case. Dr. Bakke became a well-respected anesthesiologist at the Mayo Clinic, in Rochester, Minnesota.


Devolving America: Rioters ignored by law enforcement

July 24, 2020

Michelle Malkin is a resolute conservative with numerous credentials, including political commentator, author and columnist. In the days when the increasingly radical and now hemorrhaging subscriptions Arizona Republic had an op-ed page, her columns, those of Thomas Sowell, Cal Thomas and other rational thinkers were a welcome relief from the increasing onslaught of uni-view leftist spew.

Prophetically, in 2009, Thomas wrote, “We will get more of what we tolerate.”

Last Sunday, Malkin was a featured speaker at a Police Appreciation Day “Back the Blue” rally at the Denver Civic Center in her home state of Colorado. Leftist antifa thugs stormed the stage, assaulting her and others who assembled in support of the police. Malkin, whose parents immigrated from the Philippines, was bizarrely called a “white supremacist.”

The pro-law enforcement sentiment was not returned as a retreat order was issued and no arrests were made. Anti-American goons increasingly have the upper hand across America as chaos reigns in Democrat-led cities. Private property is destroyed, historic monuments are toppled, while continually escalating mob violence and looting become routine.

Police Chief Paul Pazen, who previously linked arms and marched with BLM hoodlums, actually asked the pro-police organizers to reschedule or move the rally and provide their own security. Pazen has overseen antifa assaults on 76 Denver officers and $millions worth of damage.

This first-rate editorial titled,Denver Police Chief Paul Pazen needs to resign or be fired now,” provides clarifying facts.

Malkin’s spot on assessment is contained in these cogent words, “The toxic combination of “pandemic panic” and “George Floyd derangement syndrome” has thoroughly destroyed the home of the brave. It is a paradise for the depraved and dictatorial.”

Malkin’s column describing the Sunday afternoon debacle is titled,One Nation Under Anarcho-Tyranny.” It’s tough, but necessary reading. Knowledge is power.


The era of destruction guns for movie icon

July 14, 2020

The perpetually inflamed left isn’t content to oversee the defacing and toppling of statues of Christopher Columbus, Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses Grant off their pedestals. They were just getting revved up. Now they’re coming for Marion Morrison. Marion was a movie star, but if you’re envisioning a platinum haired hot babe in a strapless gown, you’d be disappointed. 

Marion was definitely a cinematic icon, but was nicknamed “Duke” and was known on screen as John Wayne. He personified the wild west in countless movies. A proud Republican, Wayne, who died in 1970, was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1980, by Democrat President Jimmy Carter and in 1998 he received the Naval Heritage Award by the US Navy Memorial Foundation for his support of the Navy and military during his film career. In 1999, the American Film Institute honored the Oscar-winning Wayne as among the Greatest Male Screen Legends of Classic Hollywood cinema. There are schools, ongoing events, a 100-mile trail named the “John Wayne Pioneer Trail” in Washington’s Iron Horse State Park, a marina and major roadways that carry his name to this day. A larger than life-size bronze statue of Wayne atop a horse was erected at the corner of La Cienega Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills commissioned by a bank. John Wayne International Airport in Orange County, California, has a nine-foot bronze statue of him at the entrance.

Now decades after his death, the University of Southern California will no longer honor John Wayne, who attended pre-law classes and played football there before embarking on his film career.

As New American writes:

The memory of the Oscar-winning star must be erased, the school says, because Wayne uttered now-unacceptable sentiments in an interview with Playboy magazine nearly 50 years ago.

 The result is the Wayne exhibit at the university’s cinema school will be removed.

The Hate-Wayne movement began last year when the interview popped on Twitter, and has gained steam since the death of George Floyd, which in turn prompted leftists in Orange County to launch a drive to remove his name and statue from the county’s airport.

This announcement came from Evan Hughes, Interim Assistant Dean of Diversity and Inclusion for the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

Have no doubt Janet Napolitano had a hand in this. The extreme leftist former Arizona governor, who left her post midterm to join the Obama administration, is the president of the University of California system, overseeing all 10 campuses. This will be her coup de grâce before she steps down in two weeks.

In the city of Maricopa, Arizona, part of Arizona State Route 347 is named John Wayne Parkway, which runs through the center of town. There is now an effort to rename that stretch of road.

A  multi-day event of the John Wayne Cancer Foundation benefiting the American Cancer Society takes place each fall in Casa Grande, Arizona where John Wayne owned a ranch. The disease took Wayne’s life.

As to allegations of John Wayne’s racism, the fact that the three-time married Wayne’s wives were all of Mexican heritage lays that to rest. He was the father of seven children.


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.”


Not only have we met the enemy, we diapered them

June 25, 2020

As home grown anarchists seize American cities, plunder and venomously destroy what preceding generations have created, we are left to wonder what went so wrong in the raising of our children. 

Obviously, indulging them has been a mistake. So, too, has been the public educational system that replaces history with global warming, eliminates basics and devalues excellence by giving non-offending participation awards — a practice that extends from academics through sports. The devaluing message is pure communism. No one is superior, all effort is equal. If, as in communist regimes, a doctor’s work is compensated at the same level as a truck driver, why expend the effort to spend at least a dozen years in college, medical school and residency? A driver’s license is far easier to attain.

Respect is another antiquated notion. Perpetual anger, based on nothing in this land of incomparable opportunity, is given release by smashing business windows, stealing merchandise and wantonly destroying what others have worked to achieve.  It is the mark of the perpetual Brat Generation. Throwing bricks at police officers has become as de rigueur as toppling statues erected to honor past presidents and patriots.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, a third of young people, or 24 million of those aged 18 to 34, lived under their parents’ roof in 2015. More young adults lived with parents than with a spouse in 2016. Almost 9 in 10 of those who lived with their parents a year ago are still there, failing to launch self-supporting lives. That’s more than double the number sponging off their Medicare recipient parents in 1980. Not having a job to go to enables 24-hour street protests.

The United States of America, that has offered these spoiled ingrates more than they deserve, is now held in contempt. So devoid are they of knowledge, they vandalize memorials erected to those who founded this nation or worked to ensure freedom for all, since they are intellectually vapid.

Worse, there are no consequences for their actions, so they continue to destroy and loot. In cities with Democrats in control, police are being defunded and jailed while criminals are martyred. Lives have been needlessly lost as 911 calls no longer guarantee an ambulance or police response in areas where the mob is in control.

For years we were inundated by the leftist media with falsehoods about Russia and or China influencing the 2016 election. It’s a certainty Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping are watching the destruction of America by Americans, hoisting a glass and chortling.


Are you a Trump supporter still using Facebook?

June 24, 2020

Arizonans were fortunate to have President Trump make two stops in our state on Tuesday.  He addressed a capacity crowd of Students for Trump at the 3,000 seat Dream City Church. The Phoenix event was organized by Turning Point USA/Action, a group chaired by conservative activist Charlie Kirk.

The president was accompanied at the event by Gov. Doug Ducey; Sen. Martha McSally; U.S. Reps. Andy Biggs; Paul Gosar; Debbie Lesko; David Schweikert; State Treasurer Kimberly Yee; AZ Senate President Karen Fann; House Speaker Rusty Bowers; AZ GOP Chair Kelli Ward, and numerous other local and national political leaders, including Florida U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, a youthful conservative rising star.

Watch the #GlobalNews live stream of the Students for Trump event here.

Earlier on the president’s itinerary was a visit to Yuma to inspect the completion of the 200th mile of our border wall construction, with Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf.

Accompanying the uplifting news is this harsh reality check:

REVEALED: Facebook Oversight Board – Responsible For Reviewing Censorship – Is 95% Anti-Trump AND Three Quarters Are Non-U.S. Citizens.

This is imperative reading for Trump supporters and all freedom loving Americans. The opening begins with this shocker: Facebook oversight’s board – a new body that can overrule founder Mark Zuckerberg – is drastically, disproportionately stacked with foreign, left-wing activists including individuals on the payroll of Socialist mega-donor George Soros, a globalist who abhors national boundaries, opting instead for a nightmarish one-world government.

The recently constituted board is comprised of activists who’ve compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler and former Obama officials who have hailed efforts to remove President Trump from Twitter as “awesome.

Conservatives should never support radical leftist Zuckerberg, who at age 36, and with an estimated $88 billion is already the second wealthiest man (next to Jeff Bezos) on the planet. The main lame excuse is, “My grandkids (or kids) use Facebook for family communication.” This is your opportunity to educate them on the harsh realities of standing up for what’s right. Tell them you’ll have to be reached by email or text. Even better, a real interactive phone call, or…gasp…a letter. Don’t be above bribery. Let them know for every letter they send, you’ll reply with another, newsy note containing some money. Don’t let your family trap you onto Facebook. Stick to your principles. Remind them that you have a valid voice since they wouldn’t be here without you. Each time you talk, share a short but interesting bit of family history. Make the calls fun, newsy and show them that life is more than wordless communication on their hand-held devices, while making a leftist billionaire richer by the day.


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.

Comments are turned off since we are unable to monitor them.


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.
