Pervert dem megadonor Ed Buck guilty of 9 felonies

July 30, 2021

Conviction of far-left darling of the hypocritical Arizona Republic unworthy of mention on its pages

Earlier this week, a Los Angeles federal jury, deliberating only four hours following a two-week trial, convicted wealthy democrat donor Ed Buck on charges that he injected indigent gay men with methamphetamine in exchange for sex, leading to two deaths and other overdoses, in the mattress-lined living room what was described as his Hollywood “house of horrors.” Court documents portray Buck as a “violent, dangerous sexual predator, who uses the bait of drugs, money, and shelter to lure men struggling with addiction and homelessness into his home, where he manipulates them into participating in his sexual fetishes.”

Buck, 66, was found guilty of nine felony counts including providing and injecting the drugs that led to the overdose deaths of Gemmel Moore, 26, and Timothy Dean, 55. A sentencing date has not yet been announced.

Arizonans will remember Buck (a name he altered from Buckmelter), as detailed in this 2019 post titled. “Deviant Dem megadonor Ed Buck finally arrested after 3rd man overdoses & Update.” Buck’s nefarious anti-Republican career took root in Phoenix, where he received ongoing praise and celebratory status in the local newspaper for being the driving force to take down newly elected Gov. Evan Mecham prior to his January 5, 1987 inauguration to his contrived impeachment conviction on April 4, 1988. The far left Arizona Republic cheered on Buck’s efforts against the former state senator, decorated World War II fighter pilot and POW, and a successful businessman. Evan Mecham was a devoted husband, father of seven, and active in his church, but he was a political conservative making him deserving of the wrath of the radical local newspaper, which daily vomited its multi-pronged, anti-conservative, vicious spew on him.

Governor Mecham was Donald Trump decades before President Donald Trump appeared on the political horizon.

Ed Buck lavished campaign donations on prominent state and federal (be sure to read the entire lists). Democrat candidates — Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Adam Schiff, were among the recipients of Buck’s generosity. Congressman Schiff, who represented the district where Buck lived was known to visit his home.

Buck has given more than $500,000 to a wide array of democrat groups and candidates, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (who Biden just nominated as the U.S. Ambassador to India), Gov. Gavin Newsom (currently facing a recall election) and L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey — obviously attempting to curry favor with powerful office holders who could influence his fate. His scheme worked. While in office, Lacey twice refused to prosecute Buck.

The DCCC reportedly received at least $5,000 from Buck. AZ Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s PAC, Getting Stuff Done, (GSD-PAC) was a recipient of Buck’s generosity, separate from his donations to her campaign, which she ultimately returned.

Those on the long list of leftists who willingly accepted Buck’s generosity remain mute, as does the duplicitous Arizona Republic, which couldn’t praise him enough when he led the impeachment against conservative Republican Gov. Evan Mecham. Now Buck’s conviction is unworthy of mention.


How do your AZ House, Senate members measure up?

July 23, 2021

The Arizona Free Enterprise Club has a wealth of information that reflects its pro-growth, limited government vantage point.

It is also known for rating the state Senate and House members, a legislative scorecard many fiscally conservative Republicans await each year. 

Additionally, the organization posts timely articles, follows key legislation and is informative on a wide range of issues. Today’s lead article is titled, “Biden Administration Wants to Silence People They Don’t Agree With.”

Start your day with knowledge. Spend some time on the Arizona Free Enterprise Club’s site.


“Systemic racism” fraud exposed by Catholic League President

July 8, 2021

The insidious Marxist farce known as ‘critical race theory’ has invaded America. It is served to us and our children by radically leftist educrats who have coined the phrase, “systemic racism,” which is calculated to divide us as oppressors and victims based solely on skin color. Integral to the scheme is reparations, monetary payments to atone for slavery which ended in 1865 with the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, in the aftermath of the four-year long Civil War. It was fought during the presidency of Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican U.S. President who was an ardent abolitionist.

The surge of immigrants through Ellis Island from its opening in 1892 to its closing in 1954 were often oppressed people themselves and neither they nor their descendants owned slaves, which is of no consequence to those with an agenda.

The local newspaper, which touts its commitment to diversity over competence, ran an irrational editorial on July 7, by a black University of Texas professor, under the headline, “Teaching critical race theory is patriotic, not divisive.”

Topping the most rational commentaries on the topic is this one written by Catholic League president Bill Donohue, titled, “MEET THE NEW RACISTS.” Regardless of how busy you are today, take time to read his wisdom. It’s a decision you won’t regret.


AZ dem vaccine love fest embraces Cindy McCain…

July 1, 2021

…ignores ugly realities of the school where dems staged photo-op

Leaving her husband’s caretaking duties to professionals, “Dr.” Jill Biden came to Phoenix Wednesday, to push COVID immunizations at what was described as a “closed” school-based vaccination event. Accompanied by Doug Emhoff,* Mayor Kate Gallego, her ex-husband U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, (whom she divorced in 2016, when pregnant with their son) and, of course, Cindy McCain…an increasingly necessary fixture to complete any democrat event.

Oddly, the report was relegated to Page 3 of the interior section of the leftist local newspaper. Could it be because Isaac Middle School where the event was held, should have been showcased the dire conditions of the minority-majority population school, where 86.8% are “economically disadvantaged” and falling far behind in basic math and reading proficiency scores? The school scores a “1” (10 is Best) when compared to schools statewide and nationally.

None of those harsh realities were on the minds of the still-masked democrat attendees on hand for the photo-op. Among them were AZ Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (now arrogantly running for governor); City Councilman Laura Pastor; Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez; and state Department of Health Services Director Dr. Cara Christ, who cloaks herself as a PND (Party Not Declared.)

The Biden-Harris spouse trip came as headlines blast, “Support for Biden erodes among Democrats as U.S. looks past pandemic.”

*Kamala Harris’ husband, oddly referred to in the report as the “second gentleman.”


Matt Salmon: lost Gov’s race to dem in 2002, back again

June 30, 2021

Republican State Treasurer Kimberly Yee is the top choice for conservatives

The list of those tossing their hats in Arizona’s gubernatorial ring is growing. Mercifully, Gov. Doug Ducey, a McCain loyalist, is term limited. The list of candidates aspiring to assume the Ninth Floor office grows as quickly as the inflated egos of many of the hopefuls. Among them, newsreader Kari Lake who worked for a local television station, and Karrin Taylor Kunasek Robson, married to developer Ed Robson, whose political donations to Ducey ensured her a seat on the AZ Board of Regents. Steve Gaynor, who previously waged an unsuccessful bid for Secretary of State has now announced.

Former Congressman Matt Salmon leads the list of head scratching aspirants. He is notable for losing the governor’s race in 2002 to radical leftist Janet Napolitano, who then left midterm to join the Obama administration as Director of Homeland (in)Security. Her lack of commitment for that post was best summed up in her own quote regarding Arizona’s porous border as governor: “Show me a 50-foot wall and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder.” Napolitano was succeeded by then-Secretary of State, Republican Jan Brewer.

Salmon went on to lobbying, equivocating, denying, then admitting, his involvement in what became known as Obamacare, as reported by the New Times in 2012. Although he refers to himself as a “proven and committed conservative fighter for Arizonans,” he never touches the fact that before he lobbied on behalf of ASU and was involved in the controversial Confucius Institute, covered by the Arizona Daily Independent. His most unsavory gig was hawking e-cigarettes as the President of the Electronic Cigarette Association. Not surprisingly, the site has been taken down, but the harmful effects of vaping, which has become increasingly popular with teens who opt for flavored products, is as dangerous as cigarette smoking. As a member of the LDS Church, Salmon obviously knows that use of tobacco products are in direct opposition to the church’s Doctrine and Covenants (Section 89), which he arrogantly disregards.

The current updated list of official 2022 candidates can be seen on Ballotpedia.

The conservative with an actual track record is former state Representative and Senator and current AZ State Treasurer Kimberly Yee.  Read her remarkable accomplishments on behalf of the people of Arizona. She’s a wife, mother of two, smart, knowledgeable and has a proven track record of service, winning every election in which she has run. She was tapped to speak at the 2016 Republican National Convention (link). Her brief convention speech is well worth watching.


Biden, dems, impose fed. power over local zoning laws

June 29, 2021

Comply or lose gov’t funding…our own money…as voter demographics are altered

Many Americans choose to live in the suburbs and endure the longer drive to the city center where their jobs are often located. It’s a trade-off they opt to make. They want the openness of suburbia, a yard, maybe a pool; a place where their kids can walk safely to a neighborhood school, and a nearby park. Their grandparents, frequently immigrants or a generation or two away, often lived in big cities, dense with low-rent, high-rise apartments and tough neighborhoods.

Their educated and upwardly mobile descendants were able to use their earned resources to relocate. Being Americans gives us the freedom to decide where we live.  Or so we thought.

It turns out democrats have other plans in mind.

When President Donald Trump warned about the democrats’ plan to “abolish” suburbs by infusing low income, high density housing into established neighborhoods during a Phoenix rally, he was falsely accused of “race baiting.” National Review’s Stanley Kurtz wrote “Biden and Dems Are Set to Abolish the Suburbs,” verifying what many attendees remember.

Luke Rosiak writing for The Daily Wire has written an investigative report titled, “Stealth Goal Of Infrastructure Plan Could Be To Abolish The Suburbs By Bribing Towns To Change Zoning Laws,” that is sure to leave you wondering what’s going on.

The answer is power-hungry democrats now dominate Washington, D.C.

These reports are not something you should read. As a freedom loving citizen, they are something you must read. There is a method to what appears to be leftist madness. Infusions of democrats into GOP suburbs will unalterably change voting demographics. That’s plain to see with the democrat courting of illegal aliens.

The Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule, which Kurtz refers to as “radical,” was conceptualized during the Obama administration and carrying an effective date of July 31, 2021, requires local governments that receive federal funding to study racial bias in their housing patterns and develop plans to address it.

It’s a grotesque transmogrification of title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, 42 U.S.C. 3601-3619.

Get politically involved. Silence is acquiescence. Begin with your city council and state legislators. Time is short.


California: Where cows are smarter than voters

June 25, 2021

California stands as a pathetic example of what becomes of a state where voters have repeatedly elected radicals as governor,* U.S. Senators, (both are democrats), U.S. Representatives, (41 out of 53 are democrats), a disproportionately leftward state assembly/legislators (59 dems, 19 Republicans, 1 registered Independent) and state senators (31 dems, 9 Republicans).

If they are still capable of doing so, Californians should emulate dozens of mooing cows headed for the slaughterhouse. They have taken matters in their own hooves. Not willing to stand idly by awaiting their own demise, they made a run for it. CBS News provides coverage and video.

With democrats in control, it’s no surprise that California, at 13.3%, has the highest state income tax of any state.

*Arnold Schwarzenegger elected in 2003 was the last Republican governor. Current Gov. Gavin Newsom, a democrat, is facing a recall.

AZ’s U.S. Senate race: Jim Lamon can defeat Mark Kelly

June 21, 2021

Political experience can be a plus, vacillating while deciding where to land next is opportunism

After mulling entering the governor’s race, term-limited Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has announced his intent to run for the U.S. Senate, challenging radical leftist and Second Amendment restrictionist Mark Kelly. Democrat Kelly won a special election to fill the vacancy created following the death of Sen. John McCain. He is now running for a full six-year term, a terrifying concept since Kelly is a less than sterling character, who has forged a tight friendship with Barack Obama — the manipulator behind the Harris/Biden curtain — and enriched himself through his dealings with Communist China. Kelly has already amassed $6,009,088.59 according to the April FEC quarterly report.

Last cycle he out-raised Joe Biden who was running for president. Ask yourself why money was flowing into his campaign and who would benefit by his election.  Kelly’s Socialist benefactor George Soros, facilitates Kelly’s fundraising through his over 206 U. S. sub-rosa organizations. Act Blue, which has hosted D.C. fundraisers for Kelly, isn’t on this list. Kelly’s campaign ads slickly omit the word “democrat.”

Mark Kelly, AZ Dem senate candidate wanted ex-wife jailed,” is chock full of information, and definitely worth your time. Kelly’s former astronaut colleagues blasted him in an op-ed.

Meanwhile, former President Trump has called Brnovich “lackluster,” and accused him of  “doing little” in dealing with Arizona’s  election audit. Brnovich responds with his obtuse go-to reminder that he’s the son of Yugoslavian immigrants.

In an effort to generate support among MAGA loyalists, Brnovich is finally taking on his national counterpart, U. S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on issues relating to Arizona’s election audit. Read his letter here.

As his term concludes, Brnovich has also remembered the Second Amendment, suddenly attempting to draw a contrast between himself and gun control activist Mark Kelly. In a pre-election alliance with Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, Brnovich is participating in a coalition of 24 states to uphold the Second Amendment at the U. S. Supreme Court. They are urging the high court to review a New Jersey law that limits magazine capacities and requires gun owners to surrender certain magazines to law enforcement. The Second Amendment was not previously a front burner issue for the bearded Brnovich.

These recent moves are calculated to coincide with Brnovich’s senate campaign.

We urge our readers to learn more about AZ GOP Senate candidate Jim Lamon, a constitutional conservative and Fortune 500 solar power executive whose successful business, employing 1,600 locals is headquartered in Arizona. He is right on the issues and not a termed out, vacillating politician hustling his next gig.


Gateway Pundit unravels Arizona Mirror’s funding sources

June 16, 2021

News with a bought-and-paid for slant

This June 15, 2021 Gateway Pundit article, “EXCLUSIVE: The Arizona Mirror – The Far-Left Outlet That Creates Far-Left Narratives in Arizona Is Connected to Dark Money,” links to a 2018 Phoenix New Times report that described “a new media organization in town.”

Despite the Arizona Mirror claims of being “a journalism watchdog,“ and “an independent, nonprofit news organization focused on connecting public policy with the people it affects,” the funding sources are exposed as radical entities, “including left-leaning think tanks, voter outreach groups, and nine family planning centers that perform abortions.”  Mysteriously, its Form 990 tax filing links to Chapel Hill, North Carolina. See the 501( c)(3) tax exempt claims circled in red on the Gateway Pundit site.

Finding news with a conservative perspective is all but impossible. The opposition’s commitment is to altering public opinion through skewed reporting and strengthening the impact of the democrat party in Arizona. The Arizona Mirror’s small staff all previously worked for the Arizona Capitol Times and the Arizona Republic.

Be vigilant. Our previously red state is now maroon. Five of the state’s nine U.S. Representatives are democrats as are both U.S. Senators, a first since democrats Ernest McFarland and Carl Hayden served simultaneously from 1941 to 1953. In 2020 Arizona gave its 11 Electoral College votes to Joe Biden, not replicated since Bill Clinton carried the state in 1996. Previously, the last time that dismal phenomenon occurred was in 1949, when Harry Truman was Arizona’s nominee.


AZ now has $billions in magic money to spend

June 15, 2021

Arizona is on fire. But the devastating flames that are consuming vast numbers of homes and acres in rural counties are not the sole reason. Rational citizens are inflamed over the $trillions the radical OBiden administration* is spending. The leftwing Arizona Republic newspaper calls it “federal money,” never acknowledging that it’s money taken from taxpaying citizens in ever-increasing amounts.

An example in today’s edition is this headline, “How Arizona plans to spend federal COVID relief money.” The article’s first sentence? “More than $1 billion in federal COVID-19 relief funds has flowed into Arizona’s health department, and state officials are working to spend it over the next two to three years to make sure the state is better prepared for future health crises.”

Get that? “More than $1 billion flowed.” Reporters Stephanie Innes and Alison Steinbach never question the source of the “flow.” The three pages of radically leftist, sycophantic coverage is an outstanding example of why the Arizona Republic is gasping its last breaths.

* Washington Examiner headline: “Obama says Biden is ‘finishing’ the job of his administration.”
