Hostile takeover of SCOTUS advanced by democrats

April 16, 2021

Democrats are like spoiled children, proficient at whining, foot stomping and petulantly claiming they are  getting the short end of the stick. This is especially true when the “stick” in question happens to be the U.S. Supreme Court.

It is the president’s prerogative to nominate justices as vacancies occur.  President Trump had three such opportunities during his term, filling seats on the high court with Brett Kavanaugh (replacing Justice Anthony Kennedy), Neil Gorsuch (replacing Justice Antonin Scalia) and Amy Coney Barrett (replacing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg).

The likelihood of repeating that feat is slim to none for Pres. Joe Biden, who is obviously in failing health and unlikely to serve out his full term.

Therein lies the quandary. The new administration wants to put its leftist mark on the court. That ideology was epitomized by Justice Thurgood Marshall who summed up his judicial philosophy with these words: “You do what you think is right and let the law catch up.” 

Conservative justices, often described as “originalists,” or “constitutionalists” see the document as not open to wide interpretation, preferring to follow the law as written. A constructionist approach not only aligns with the founders’ vision for America, but it also is the best line of defense against an out-of-control government that deprives its citizens of their freedoms. The Constitution delegated the authority to make law to the legislature, not to judges.

It is with these lines of demarcation that Americans need to pay attention to the democrat’s preparations — as announced in this White House press release — for a hostile takeover of the U.S. Supreme Court by expanding the number of justices from nine to thirteen.

On February 5, 1937, democrat Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt sent shockwaves through the nation by initiating a plot to expand the Supreme Court, known as “packing the court,” to insure his leftist agenda would easily be implemented. FDR’s scheme was short-lived, defeated by Roosevelt’s own party members. The senate judiciary committee was clear in its assessment, writing, “It is a measure which should be so emphatically rejected that its parallel will never again be presented to the free representatives of the free people of America.”

Today’s democrats are both ignorant of precedent and far less noble. 

The overreach is being pushed by Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-MA); House Judiciary Chair, Jerrold Nadler (D-NY); U.S. Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY); and U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) — who deceptively defended the legislation’s introduction as necessary to start debate on the issue. Ramrodding is not akin to debate.

“Ultimately, we have to repeal the filibuster. And then we can move this legislation,” Markey said. “Clearly, we would want Republicans to vote with us, but if they are not willing to participate in that effort,” he slyly added, “then we can still do this on a basis of 51 votes.”

Jones, who stated Biden is “doing a tremendous job,” also said, “There is no reason to work with’ the GOP right now.”

The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13, from the current 9 which has been the case for 152 years. Their intent is to flip the ideological balance of the 9-member court from a 6-3 conservative majority to a 7-6 leftist majority.

Though the consequences of this scheme are enormous, as a 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden, in an exchange with a reporter covered by the Daily Wire, said voters “don’t deserve” to know his view on this crucial issue. But as a senator in 1983, Biden held a far different perspective, calling packing the court, “a bonehead idea.”


Mob rule cancels law enforcement as facts are ignored

April 15, 2021

A tragic error has devolved into a police officer becoming the easy sacrifice to quell rioting mobs

Kim Potter, a 26-year veteran Brooklyn Center, Minnesota — now former police officer — was formally charged with second degree manslaughter Wednesday, after making a deadly error and pulling her service revolver instead of the taser she was reaching for. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

Body cam footage shows she repeatedly warned 20-year-old Daunte Wright, who was attempting to flee, “I’ll tase you! I’ll tase you! Taser! Taser! Taser!” To propel the legal lynching of Officer Potter, a married mother and career officer, mobs have so far rioted and looted over four days.

Though Wright is being portrayed as an innocent, police attempted to arrest him over an open felony warrant that stemmed from this aggravated robbery charge* in which he was accused of choking and threatening to shoot a woman if she did not give him her money.

The Daily Wire reports that U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) responded to the shooting by claiming on Twitter, without evidence, that the shooting “wasn’t an accident.”

“It wasn’t an accident,” Tlaib, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants stated. “Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed.”

You read that right. A member of the U.S. Congress, a democrat, of course, whose parents presumably came here to embrace our liberty-based existence and ensure a better life for their family, has boldly stated that she not only desires to defund the police, she wants to obliterate them, along with  jails, prisons and whatever falls into her concept of “militarization.”

Rashida Tlaib is not alone. Far-left extremist U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) shared Talib’s views on Twitter.

Biden’s border crisis coming to a neighborhood near you

April 11, 2021

Arizona U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-CD 5) has become a regular Fox News go-to source on the border calamity and with good reason. His credentials are impeccable and as co-chair of the Border Security Caucus he has seen first hand what Pres. Biden and VP Kamala Harris — supposedly in charge of overseeing the catastrophic border — have not. In fact, the very suggestion of her going to the U.S./Mexico border sends her into fits of laughter.

We urge you to read Congressman Biggs‘ fact-filled column, “Biden’s Border Crisis Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You,” published on Townhall.


Target stores peddling anti-white, racist prayer book

April 10, 2021

In 2015, many customers stopped shopping in Target stores due to their newly installed transgender policies that included welcoming transgender bathrooms, where your young daughter might have the opportunity to share facilities with a biological man wearing a dress using a urinal in plain sight.

The  stores also made the corporate decision to un-gender, or as this press release noted, “phase out gender-based signage” in the toy aisles that previously had arrays of trucks and other toys preferred by boys as well as those carrying dolls for girls and bedding displays of sheets with cowboys and spacemen or Cinderella and flowers, intermingled instead of specifically designated “boys” or “girls,” for ease in shopping.

But there’s more…guaranteed to make reasonable people fume. Veronica Hays, writing for Media Research Center’s NewsBuster’s, exposes a gem of a devotional Target carries in its book section. The article is headlined, ‘Dear God, Help Me To Hate White People’: Target Sells Racist ‘Devotional.’ Read the complete exposé, including this featured prayer:

“Dear God, Please help me to hate White people. Or at least to want to hate them” is the depraved supplication offered to the Almighty in an entry of a recently published devotional.

On April 3, a woman picked up this prayer book while she was shopping at Target. The devotional book, titled “A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal” is number one on Amazon’s Christian Meditation Worship & Devotion section and is a New York Times bestseller.

In today’s world, this irrationality makes sense. Dennis Prager’s best selling books in the Rational Bible series are unworthy of mention on the New York Times best sellers list.


Biden: “enough prayers, it’s time for action” on guns

April 9, 2021

2nd Amendment rights need protection as never before

In early March, Merrick Garland was confirmed by the senate in a 70-30 vote as U.S. Attorney General, fulfilling the wish of Barack Obama, Joe Biden’s master puppeteer. On his way out of office Obama unsuccessfully tried to slip the former federal appellate judge onto the U.S. Supreme Court.

If all was as it should be, Garland’s new position should put him in an untenable predicament when it comes to handling a federal probe into Biden’s son, Hunter. Federal investigators have been examining multiple financial matters, including whether Hunter Biden violated tax and money laundering laws in foreign energy business dealings. CEFC China Energy, which has links to the Chinese Communist Party, paid Hunter at least $5 million in 2017, according to this Senate report. Along the way, Hunter, who has acknowledged a cocaine addiction, has also developed memory loss regarding compromising information and photos on his laptop that was dropped off at a repair shop. His multiple, and fanciful explanations during a recent CBS interview can be read on The Daily Signal.

Ah, but we digress.

Newly installed U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland has been described as a Second Amendment skeptic, a too soft term for a dedicated restrictionist. On March 15, the NRA-ILA (Institute for Legislative Action) headlined its report, “U.S. House Bows to Biden, Passes Legislation to Cancel Your RIGHT to Obtain a Firearm.”

This is not hyperbole.

Frail and barely cognizant Biden, clearly still under Obama’s direction, has been filling key positions with anti-Second Amendment extremists as detailed here by Jason Ouimet, NRA-ILA Executive Director.

On Thursday Biden, joined by Merrick Garland, announced numerous executive actions aimed at  further restricting gun rights and advocating for red flag laws as he admittedly bypasses congress. This overreach should concern every American regardless of party affiliation. (Notice many of his Biden’s embarrassing gaffes remain in the printed version.)

Biden also announced his selection of David Chipman to serve as the Director of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the agency responsible for enforcing gun laws. Chipman was previously aligned with Giffords PAC, a gun control group that specifically funneled $millions to democrat candidates, committed to carrying out its mission. Giffords is former Arizona U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, whose husband Mark Kelly is now a George Soros aligned U.S. Senator.

America’s strongest safeguard against these far-left overreaches into our Constitutional right to gun ownership is the NRA. If you’re not already a member, join now. It’s never been more important. Our future depends on full dedication to the amendment our Founders put immediately after the first, which guarantees freedom of speech, and the right to peaceably  assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.  


Leftist law firm threatens Maricopa County election auditors

April 8, 2021

The Conservative Treehouse, alternately known as The Last Refuge, is a reliable site that delves into matters of importance, an even more necessary adjunct in the tumultuous post-Trump era.”

Today we take our readers directly to a post dealing with Maricopa County’s election audit. Take time to read Democrat Lawfare Group Including Perkins Coie Sends Legal Threat to Group Auditing Maricopa County Election.”

It has information you’ll never see in the leftist Arizona Republic newspaper, which denigrates any mention of an audit, despite undeniable evidence of fraud. Read the threatening demand letter sent to the auditors and copied to Arizona Senate President Karen Fann; Senate Counsel Gregg Jernigan; Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and the elected members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors: Clint Hickman; Jack Sellers; Steve Chucri; Bill Gates and Steve Gallardo.

Perkins Coie is anything but a benign law firm, as succinctly exposed by Influence Watch in the first four short but compelling, must-read paragraphs. Socialist Billionaire George Soros has shoveled $millions to Perkins Coie to enable the political law practice to file lawsuits to eliminate mandatory voter identification requirements and other state regulations left-of-center activists falsely claim suppress voter turnout among constituencies.

Information is power and we need it now more than ever as the Biden/Harris administration has thrown open our southern border to all comers and is bankrupting our nation as it spends unfathomable $trillions that leave us vulnerable to takeover by enemy debt-holding nations that watch our destabilized condition like salivating wolves.


AZ Gov. Ducey lifts COVID restrictions as he looks ahead

March 27, 2021

Governor Doug Ducey issued Executive Order 2021-06 on March 25. After scrolling through 17 WHEREAS’ readers will finally get down to the NOW THEREFORE, officially certified with a gold seal, signed by Ducey and attested to by the secretary of state. According to COVID-19 Tracker, over 3 million vaccine doses have been administered so far in Arizona, with 14.8% fully vaccinated, and 26.7% of the population who have received at least one dose.

Bearing the effusive title, “New Phase of COVID-19 Mitigation…Business Guidelines Transition From Requirements to Recommendations,” the Executive Order officially provides Arizonans and businesses the ability to get back to living and reopening businesses. There’s always a backstory.

Ducey’s official bio omits his close association with John and Cindy Hensley McCain. When Ducey came to Arizona to attend ASU he worked at Hensley & Company, heiress Cindy’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship inherited from her father. A squish Republicrat, she endorsed and campaigned for Joe Biden for president in 2020.

Ever pragmatic Ducey was onstage with President Donald Trump at his Feb. 19, 2020 overflow pre-pandemic rally at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum, accepting the president’s accolades for securing the border. But within days, he forfeited his authority to Mexico as he halted the Sanctuary City ban.

It’s far worse to be stabbed in the back by someone masquerading as a Republican, than a candid Leftist.

Duplicitous Ducey is not going to go quietly into the dark night when his current term expires January 1, 2023. He’s got something up his sleeve which could well entail a self-serving party switch as he seeks his next gig. 

This post, “AZ Gov. Doug Ducey sells out to China,” details his groundwork, as he recently sold his 11,412 sq. ft. Paradise Valley golf course fairway home situated on 2.14 acres, at a discounted rate of $8,150,000. It includes a link to this World Tribune commentary by Joe Schaeffer, “Arizona Gov. Ducey to China: ‘Lots of opportunities’ to exploit ‘our defense industry, mining and ores.’” To call it enlightening would be the height of understatement.


Media cover-up: Colo. supermarket killer was a Syrian-born Muslim

March 24, 2021

Colorado massacre spurs Dem’s renewed gun control efforts

Within hours of the Boulder, Colorado deadly supermarket shooting that killed ten people including a police officer who was the father of seven, democrats on Capitol Hill began using the tragedy to launch Second Amendments rights restrictions.

The shooter, described by the networks as “another white male” is actually Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, a Syrian-born Muslim. The leftwing local newspaper blandly headlines the mass murderer Alissa as “a 21-year-old Colorado man.” Mentioning that he is a Muslim from Syria doesn’t fit its narrative.

His family is already working on providing an alibi, saying Alissa is delusional and believed people were following or chasing him, which they claim may have contributed to the shootings. A former high school classmate said Alissa, then on the school’s wrestling team, told fellow teammates he was going to kill all of them, but, “no one believed him or did anything about it.”  Surely they must have heard about the Columbine High School massacre and the Aurora theater carnage, both of which occurred in Colorado.

In Washington, D.C., Sen. Chuck Schumer declared he was already committed to sending a universal background check bill to the U.S. Senate. Joe Biden is said to be considering signing another executive action, that restricts the rights of law abiding gun owners — bypassing congress. So desperate are they to curtailing our constitutional freedoms, they could run the two items concurrently.

For a memory jogger, check out this 2012 SRAZ post  titled, “Them Dem Hypocrites,” which comes complete with photos of leading Second Amendment restrictionists and their guns. Chuck Schumer is featured. Barack Obama is pictured with his rifle in the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

When she was Barack Obama’s Homeland Security chief, Janet Napolitano the far-left former Arizona governor, issued a scathing Department of Homeland Security report identifying American returning military vets as  “Right-wing extremists” who pose national security threats. Napolitano claimed, “Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists.”  It’s still available and can be read under the link


Kamala Harris’ takeover of WH verified by unprecedented language mandate

March 23, 2021

Incrementalism replaced by bold assertion

When Slo-Joe Biden recently referred to VP Kamala Harris as “President Harris,” it was more accurate than a mere slip of the tongue. The latest evidence that the shift is beginning in earnest is the odd directive reported on “Outspoken” titled, “EXCLUSIVE To downplay Biden, White House directs all agencies to refer to ‘Biden-Harris Administration’ in official communications.” 

A leaked email from an employee of a federal government agency reveals the White House is shifting toward a communication strategy that elevates Vice President Kamala Harris in all official White House business.

The directive, the employee reports, emanated from a top White House communications team member and instructs all 15 executive agencies to refer to the Biden administration as the “Biden-Harris Administration.” Those departments include the following executive agencies: Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury, Veterans Affairs, and the U.S. Attorney General.

“Please be sure to reference the current administration as the ‘Biden-Harris Administration’ in official public communications,” the directive reads, with “Biden-Harris Administration” accented in bold. The White House twitter account is now using the same wording.

SRAZ was ahead of the announcement as evidenced by our blogroll “Categories” in which we began using the term Harris/Biden immediately following the January 20, 2021 inauguration, as it became increasingly clear that Biden was a momentary figurehead…suffering from mental and physical decline, as noted by former White House physician and current Texas Congressman, Ronny Jackson. After two full months in office, Biden has yet to hold a press conference in which he spontaneously engages with the accommodating press, he has no need to fear. His first one is scheduled for Thursday.

The White House has previously told the press corps it wanted questions submitted to Biden’s staff in advance. If they comply with that request on Thursday, it will be the most convincing evidence Americans need of the devious collusion between the media and the political left. They would never tolerate such behavior from any politician outside of the uniparty to which they all pay homage.*

Mesa AZ has charlatan Mayor John Giles leading the city

March 22, 2021

Appearing Sunday on CNN’s “Inside Politics,” Mesa Arizona’s Republican Mayor John Giles says that he has been “impressed so far” by the Biden administration’s handling of the border crisis. The Hill has the dialogue in print.

Either Giles isn’t paying attention, impresses easily or thinks halting construction of the border wall and allowing hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens to invade the USA is somehow beneficial — especially during the Coronavirus pandemic and as millions of Americans remain unemployed and new jobless claims are historically high. The Washington Examiner reports the Biden administration is opening another overflow facility to house illegals near the U.S.-Mexico border, where thousands of unaccompanied minors, facilitated by members of well-paid drug cartels, are continually breaching our sovereign border. Others, known as OTM and SIA, acronyms for illegal aliens who are ‘Other Than Mexican’ or ‘Special Interest Aliens’ are from places far removed from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico. U.S. Border Patrol agents have apprehended invaders from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia, Pakistan, and Yemen. Not only is this unacceptably dangerous, we are then on the hook for the costs to accommodate their basic needs, and educate their children, while the adults flood our depressed labor market, undercutting American wages. 

Mexico disallows the U.S. to send citizens from other countries back through Mexico. Under U.S. law, they’re entitled to a formal deportation hearing. The immigration service lacks beds to hold them, so the vast majority of OTMs are released from custody and asked to voluntarily return for their court date. Guess how that turns out.

This Breitbart headline says it all:Mesa, AZ Mayor Giles: ‘I’ve Been Impressed So Far’ with Biden Administration on Border Surge.”

The good people of Mesa who thought they were voting for a Republican and found they got a Biden admirer instead, should consider kicking this charlatan to the curb with a Constitutionally permissible recall. 

Mesa residents, who deserve better, can and should do it!
