Elvia Diaz or Russell Pearce: Who’s the hate monger?

July 19, 2017

The leftwing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic outdid itself with a hate-laden, incendiary screed passing itself off as an editorial.  Elvia Diaz, the heir apparent to long-in-the-tooth Linda Valdez, must have missed her dose of Prozac as she took to the keyboard in a venomous rant against Russell Pearce. The threatening headline reads, “You’ve got our attention, Russell Pearce, and we’re ready for you.”  Whether the readiness includes more than words is left to speculation.

Who is Russell Pearce? He’s the former Arizona Senate President who has dedicated his life to others. A brief overview includes serving as a Maricopa County Deputy Sheriff, promoted to Chief Deputy, Justice of the Peace and pro tem judge. He served in the military. Pearce has been the director of state agencies and is now Chief Deputy of the Maricopa County Treasure’s Office. He was also instrumental in the passage of Arizona’s SB1070. As you read his full and impressive bio, it becomes clear this is a man who stands head and shoulders above the crowd. 

What has Diaz so riled up is the fact that the respected investigative and  legal watchdog Judicial Watch and Pearce have joined forces requesting Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich sue the state Board of Regents for skirting a recent Arizona Court of Appeals decision denying illegal aliens in-state tuition rates.

In Diaz’ fantasy world, the illegals have morphed into venerated “immigrants” and “dreamers.”  And patriot Pearce?  He is worthy of a voluminous assault, exemplifying a new low in journalistic standards. Here are a few examples taken directly from the editorial with Diaz’ smiling photo smugly attached:

Russell Pearce is described in the opening sentence as the man “behind Arizona’s infamous, anti-immigrant law…we thought we sent to the depths of irrelevancy.”

Pearce, she construes, “Is attempting a comeback, with his divisive and corrosive rhetoric clearly intact.” Because he has worked and earned retirement in the state legislature, law enforcement, and the judicial system and he doesn‘t think Arizona’s taxpaying citizens should be forced to underwrite illegals by gifting them with  in-state tuition,  Diaz refers to him as a “disgraced, triple-dipping bigot.”

Diaz goes on, “It’s a mistake to dismiss Pearce as the lunatic, publicity-hungry politician some Arizonans love to loathe.” At least she conceded it’s only “some“ loathers. Most of us regard the man whose personal motto is “faith, family freedom — above all else,” with respect.

The diatribe ends with this sunny thought, “The stars have aligned in his favor. Donald Trump’s election to the White House makes it all too plain that people like Pearce remain in our midst.

We can’t become too distracted with Trump to ignore them. We must remain ready to fight their kind of intolerance.”

Long known to be in the grasp of death throes, the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) continues to insult its dwindling reader base.

In the skewed thinking of the radical left, it’s intolerant to want to secure our border and deny undeserved benefits to invaders. They are poised to fight for the hordes over our own citizens.


AZ Sen. Jeff Flake, dedicated Trump antagonist, vulnerable in 2018

July 18, 2017

A Politico article referencing Jeff Flake’s reelection vulnerability is making the rounds. Conservatives who have ample reason to distrust Flake are taking heart in the fact that potential challengers are eyeing the political landscape and assessing their chances in the 2018 U.S. Senate race.

But the article,White House squeezes Jeff Flakedescribing the animus between President Trump and  Flake, is a mixed bag of speculation with some less than stellar options mentioned. As an example, among those said to have had conversations with President Trump regarding the senate seat currently held by his antagonist Flake are former state GOP chairman; Robert Graham, a dedicated McCain booster who has steadfastly supported Jeff Flake, putting him at odds with grassroots activists.  Also mentioned are State Treasurer Jeff DeWit, Trump’s 2016 AZ campaign chair and Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and conservative former state senator. Ward is the only announced challenger and has been traveling the state, meeting with an ever-increasing group of supporters.

Politico even tosses in former Gov. Jan Brewer, whose top advisers had longstanding ties to McCain and U.S. Rep Martha McSally (CD-2) who generates no enthusiasm among conservatives.

The conjecture of possible challengers might be music to Flake’s ears, since having numerous candidates splitting the vote is how McCain has stayed in office.  He was often accused of recruiting some “opponents” for that very reason. But Flake has charted a risky course far and apart from a potentially crowded field.

As a staunch Obama ally, he played on his White House basketball team and traveled with him to Kenya and Cuba — where Flake has long been eager to open doors with  the Communist dictatorship. Flake colluded with liberals on gun control, and  nuclear negations with terror-sponsoring Iran. His peripheral ties with Iran go back to the early 1990’s when Jeff Flake worked as a lobbyist for Rossing Uranium — one of the world’s largest suppliers of the nuclear fuel. He was registered as a foreign agent representing the company which operates a mine in the African country of Namibia.  Flake earned approximately $7,000 per month opening doors in D.C. and promoting the firm with financial ties to Iran.

And then there’s Flake’s ongoing push for amnesty for the illegal hordes flooding the U.S through Arizona’s porous southern border. He and McCain spearheaded the Gang of 8 to achieve that end, recruiting two other Republicrats and four liberals, including Trump obstructionist, Chuck Schumer.

Flake’s own strident opposition to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was so appealing  to the left that Hillary Clinton featured Flake in this campaign ad.

Quoting Flake’s spokesman, Politico got some facts wrong — most notably Flake’s “successful push to confirm Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.” In fact, Flake shepherded Obama’s lame-duck nominee Democrat Merrick Garland through the senate halls, introducing him as a viable replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia, who died unexpectedly last year. Fortunately, Donald Trump was elected and appointed Neil Gorsuch to the high court.

US Senate terms are six years long. Flake won in 2012 by a mere 3 percentage points. He’s flippable. We can do it.  Acquaint yourself with Kelli Ward’s conservative principles.

Jeff Flake and John McCain are bottom draggers in this recent poll referencing all 100 U.S. Senators regardless of party affiliation. The Morning Consult survey showed the most vocal critics of President Trump are the least popular.

The polling site concludes with this excellent summation from Eddie Zipperer, a professor of political science at Georgia Military College, “Flake ran as conservative, governed as a moderate, tried to push amnesty on Americans, and campaigned against the Republican presidential nominee. That’s not exactly a recipe for re-election.” He correctly described the Gang of 8 amnesty bill as “nothing short of a total Republican surrender on the issue.”

 


Vengeful McCain headlined as key player in phony Russian dossier

July 13, 2017

Arizonans who pay attention have long known of the underhanded tactics and uncontrolled temper of  John McCain. To call them legendary would make him appear to be laudable rather than the unsavory character he actually is. The UK’s Daily Mail and the Guardian reveal John McCain as the devious schemer behind the effort to take down President Donald Trump, who McCain and his senate seat mate Jeff Flake each said they would not vote for.  McClatchy News fired the opening volley in outing McCain in the Russian dossier scandal. The Daily Caller has revealed that McCain will face questions in a defamation lawsuit.

Possessing an insatiable ego and access to lobbyist money and Socialist billionaire George Soro’s generous funding, McCain has vastly outspent more worthy opponents and was reelected in 2016 to another six-year term at age 80. Never letting the truth get in the way of his mission, he and his operatives have even engaged in intra-party measures to oust conservative elected precinct committeemen within the Arizona Republican Party — using out-of-state Obama donors to accomplish his ends.

It appears McCain’s role in this  latest outrageous action against the President of the United States, might finally be the straw that breaks the proverbial camel’s back and results in unceremoniously removing him from the U.S. Senate in disgrace.

La Raza by any other name smells just as foul

July 12, 2017

The National Council of La Raza, the far left Hispanic organization whose name translates to “The Race” and whose motto is “Por la raza todo, fuera de la raza nada” — “For the race, everything, outside the race, nothing,” — met in Phoenix this week for its 2017 national conference

On the agenda was a name change for the clearly racist group, which will now call itself “Unidos U.S.,” or “United U.S.”  according to Janet Murguia, President and CEO,

In 2008, Murguia acknowledged the difficulty the name posed to reporter Ruben Navarrette, Jr., who criticized the name as “a musty throwback to the 1960s.””We take a lot of heat for our name,” Murguia said at the time. She acknowledged that there had been discussions about changing it. “But historically I think it’s something that our community feels wedded to.” Murguia prefers to use its initials, calling it simply, “NCLR.” Yet there’s no escaping the fact that militant Latinos express their advocacy for illegal immigration by shouting, “Viva la Raza!”

Now she admits that though the name change was being considered before Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, the new name “fits the strategy of collective resistance.”

Conference attendees had sharply differing views on the name change, some saying it was “selling out” and expressing pride in the unquestionably racist name.

Randy Parraz, a local open-borders extremist, described benignly as a “community organizer” by the daily newspaper, opposed the name change as giving in to pressure. “We have to own our identity because it makes us powerful,” he said.

Janet Murguia, deeply rooted in liberalism, is not one who speaks impetuously. Her twin sister Mary, is a judge on the left-leaning Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals — nominated by Barack Obama.  AZ  Sens. McCain and Kyl voted for her confirmation. Her brother Carlos is a federal judge for the U.S. District Court in Kansas. Prior to being nominated to the federal bench by Bill Clinton, he was the Coordinator for the Immigration Amnesty Program of El Centro, Inc.

Nine years ago this week, Michelle Malkin, nationally syndicated columnist, author and senior editor at Conservative Review, wrote15 things you should know about “The Race.” It remains relevant. At the time the column was written, presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama were each featured speakers at the annual La Raza conference in San Diego. Malkin is a proud American of Philippine heritage.

The late Congressman Dr. Charlie Norwood (R-GA.) warned about La Raza.

*William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, she says, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Juliet makes the case that it doesn’t matter to her that Romeo is from her family’s longstanding foe, the house of Montague. The reference is often used to imply that the names of things have no affect on what they actually are — as in the case of La Raza.


Phx PD ties officers’ hands in arrests of illegal aliens

July 10, 2017

Judicial Watch’s Corruption Chronicles exposes the quietly implemented new Phoenix Police Department policy banning officers from contacting federal agents after arresting an illegal alien and forbidding them from asking about immigration status, in violation of key provisions of a state law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Judicial Watch obtained a copy of the Phoenix Police Department’s new sanctuary Immigration Procedures, which also replace the term “illegal alien” with “a person unlawfully present.” It appears to be part of a broader scheme to dodge federal immigration laws in Arizona’s most populous county.

Earlier this year Judicial Watch reported that Paul Penzone, the newly elected Maricopa County sheriff, was releasing an average of 400 criminal illegals every 10 days. Many of them were violent offenders, but Penzone released them from Maricopa County Jail facilities, to protect them from deportation. The illegal aliens had state criminal charges ranging from misdemeanors to felonies, driving under the influence and drug offenses. “There’s no telling how many criminals he’s (Sheriff Penzone) putting on the streets,” stated a high-ranking federal law enforcement official stationed in Arizona.

Under a longtime partnership between the county and the feds, the Phoenix field office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was notified when “aliens unlawfully present with additional Arizona charges” were released from the Maricopa County Jail, which is one of the nation’s largest with a population of about 8,000. That ended when Penzone, who refers to illegal immigrants as “guests,” took office this year.

The Phoenix Police Department has about 3,000 officers that were permitted to use “sound judgment” at any time under the agency’s former immigration enforcement policy. That allowed front-line officers to directly contact federal immigration officials involving criminal illegal immigrants. The revised policy, issued just weeks ago, mandates all contact with federal immigration partners to be funneled through a single Violent Crimes Bureau (VCB) desk sergeant who will document all immigration related data and give authority to call ICE.

Although Arizona is a red state, with Republican majorities in both chambers of the state legislature, a Republican Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Treasurer and Education Superintendent with five of the nine congressional district seats and the majority of Maricopa County offices held by Republicans, the city of Phoenix is another matter. The Phoenix City Council is now a Democrat majority and Democrat mayors have held the reins of the city far too long, aided by unions and the scheme of moving the already traditionally low turnout city elections to the summer when many concerned voters are vacationing.

Additionally, there was a new dynamic during the 2016 election cycle. Socialist billionaire George Soros, a funder of Hillary Clinton and John McCain, also set his sights on nation-wide law enforcement and prosecutorial races, which is how Penzone reached campaign spending heights. A 2016 Primary Election day snafu that forced voters to stand in lines for hours resulted in the longtime Republican County Recorder losing the post, and the election of leftwing Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes, who now oversees elections. Fontes intends to replace polling places with all mail-in ballots and claims voter ID requirements constitute minority voter suppression.

Pope Francis hurls more insults at U.S. and Pres. Trump

July 9, 2017

Seeks to marginalize President Trump over “immigration” at meeting with G20 world leaders

 The relationship between Pope Francis and the United States has often been a rocky one. This pope is clearly a Marxist, while the roots of the U.S. are grounded in liberty, respect for the rule of law and a sense of personal responsibility. Though Americans are the world’s most charitable, the pope adheres to Karl Marx’ redistributionist philosophy of “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs, “  — not advocating charity but confiscation and redistribution from earners to takers.

He also places illegal invaders above lawful immigrants — though not at the Vatican.

Pope Francis and his minions have made clear their abhorrence of Donald Trump from his days as a candidate. The animus has only worsened since President Trump’s inauguration.

During the 2016 campaign, the pope displaying his magical powers of ESP, actually claimed the Republican front-runner, “Was not a Christian,” declaring, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”

Exhibiting a grand dose of hypocrisy, he even tried to bully Trump into submission on his campaign pledge to build a wall to secure our sovereign border. The globalist  pope claims to abhor such barriers, though he lives within the confines of Vatican City guarded by its own army of Swiss Guards, behind massive 50-foot-tall, ten-feet thick walls surrounding the impenetrable Vatican fortress.

Viewing himself as omnipotent Francis claimed Trump’s withdrawal from the Climate Change accords was a personalslap in the face.”

When Francis was scheduled to address the U.S. Congress, he first made a beeline to the repressed island of Cuba to visit Communist dictator .Raul Castro, clearly showing his preferred alliance.  Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar, a devout Catholic, opted not to attend the papal address. Read Gosar’s cogent explanation for his boycott.

Now while President Trump is interacting with world leaders at the G20 summit — even meeting with Russia’s Putin for the first time and addressing the issue of intrusion into our elections — the America abhorring pope claims,America has a distorted vision of the world.” This linked CNS news report is definitely worth your time.

Francis needs to decide if he is the spiritual leader of the Catholic Church’s estimated 1.2 billion adherents, or a radical political aspirant espousing Communism and cheering lawlessness on the world stage. With a gay and drug fueled sex scandal recently erupting within the Vatican, he should have his hands full.

He can’t have it both ways.


Did you miss Carlos Santana?  No, you didn’t

July 1, 2017

Trump hater hypocritically talks “power of peace” while reviling U.S. President

With his Woodstock LSD-addled days supposedly behind him, the now 70-year-old musician Carlos Santana appeared in concert last night at a Valley casino. Ticket prices peaked at $150 a seat.

But it’s not the overpriced tickets for a has-been entertainer that might grab your attention. It’s his words in the local newspaper’s interview that should chill any future interest in this long-in-the-tooth performer. Mexican-born Santana, who became a naturalized citizen in 1965, still doesn’t get the U.S. election system.  Numerous people run for the presidency but ultimately one gets elected, because the message they carried resonated with the majority of voters.

It’s a good bet few who read this site were Obama supporters, but we waited until his time in office was over and went to work, ultimately electing Donald Trump. Unlike his predecessor, he didn’t issue vague promises of “Hope and Change,” bribe gullible voters with free cell phones or repeatedly lie (video montage) about his unsustainable, socialized health care scheme. He spoke instead about making America “great again,” which resonated with weary voters across the country. A business entrepreneur, he has made American private sector job creation a prominent feature of his administration. 

President Trump’s many successes are of no consequence to Carlos Santana, who goes off the deep end in an an unconcealed liberal political rant peppered with lies and led on by ‘music critic’ Ed Masley. Supposedly pitching “the power of peace,” his far leftist views will make you glad you missed the concert. After discussing music, the interview veered off into liberal hate speech:

Q: You’re not especially fond of the new administration in America.

A: Who is? Other than the Ku Klux Klan, I mean, who is? It’s not unity and harmony. It’s fear, fear, fear, fear, fear. It’s built on monetary interests. I have endured as a person LBJ, Nixon, Ronald Reagan, the two Bushes and this guy. It’s the same guy with a different face, you know?

Q: You think?

A: I know so. But one thing that’s happening is America is thirsty for righteousness and integrity. And more and more people are waking up to “You know what? We need to change ourselves and what’s happening.”

Q: How do you stay hopeful in the face of all the fear?

A: Well, thank you for asking that. Every day, when I wake up in the morning, I thank God for life and existence and I especially thank him for Nikola Tesla, because he invented the remote control. I pick it up and as soon as I see Donald Trump, I change the channel or turn it off. So he has absolutely no power over me whatsoever.

I just turn his ass right off. And I listen to birds. I listen to the clouds passing. I don’t give him anything at all from my attention, energy or concentration. I just zap him right out of my house. He has no power over me. And that’s how I stay positive.
