Sheriff Penzone puts ICE detainer for illegals on ice

February 18, 2017

Selling out to Soros equates to selling out the safety of Maricopa County citizens

If liberal Paul Penzone — shoehorned into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office via millions in cash infusions from billionaire Socialist George Soros — is so proud of his latest policy regarding illegal aliens, where is his press release heralding it?

In an Orwellian language manipulation, Penzone recently referred to these unlawful invaders as “guests.”

The most recent gambit of the Democrat Sheriff is that Maricopa County jails will no longer detain illegals identified by federal authorities for the U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“Individuals no longer will be detained beyond the time that they otherwise should be released for an offense.” Paul Penzone was quoted as saying. “We are following our legal obligation, to process that individual for release.”

Note the careful use of language. The word “individual” is used twice in two sentences. After blowback he’s veering away from referring to illegal aliens as “guests.”

Penzone declared the new policy will be effective immediately. The previous order was known as an ICE detainer.

During the 2016 election cycle Politico exposed George Soros’ efforts to overhaul the U.S. justice system by funding Democrat prosecutor and law enforcement candidates who evidenced a leftward lurch. It was an integral part of a concerted effort to reshape the American justice system. Soros was successful in several races, even using his $billions to oust Republican incumbents.  Paul Penzone stands as an example.

Penzone and unknown Democrat lawyer Diego Rodriguez, another Soros backed candidate, who mounted an unsuccessful challenge to Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, had a lot in common: $oros’s money.

Globalist Soros’ entry into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s race was by no means a stand alone aberration. His Safety and Justice national PAC is a part of an intricate syndicate with long tentacles reaching into law enforcement races in various states, including Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Texas. He is even funding the expansion of Europe’s “refugee” crisis, declaring “national borders are the obstacle.”

YourNewsWire posted a compelling report titled, “Megalomaniac George Soros is at war with Western Democracy.” It’s a rainy Saturday. Take time to read it. There will be other elections and though Soros is 86 years old, his adult children are poised to take the reins of their father’s evil empire.


California group issues warning about Jeff Flake

February 17, 2017

Californians for Population Stabilization has put out a series of videos identifying amnesty sellouts. There are several featuring Arizona Senator Jeff Flake.  This one cuts right to the chase:

The group’s Board of Directors issue a stern warning (video) regarding the threat posed by  massive and uncontrolled immigration and the quality of life of all Californians   Extrapolate this warning to include all Americans.

Read the  press release accompanying the launch of this ad campaign. It’s titled,Flake Continues Role as Critic, Impediment to Trump’s Immigration Agenda.”

CAPS Advisory Board includes Victor Davis Hanson, Ph.D., a Senior Fellow with the Hoover Institute and the author of  the blockbuster 2003 book “Mexifornia,”— well over a decade old, but still relevant. This is the cogent essay,Mexifornia, Five Years Later,“ printed in City Journal. After watching the Jeff Flake video exposé read the essay which Hanson subtitles, “The flood of illegal immigrants into California has made things worse than I foresaw.”

Grandstanding, longtime amnesty proponent, Jeff Flake not only refused to endorse the Republican nominee for president, he also made the rounds of liberal media outlets declaring he would not vote for Donald Trump. There is only one conclusion to draw: the iffy Republicrat gave his vote to Hillary Clinton. Keep that fact in mind when he appears on the Arizona ballot later this year.

Phx City Council runoff: Why it’s crucial to elect Chris DeRose

February 16, 2017

The Phoenix City Council on Wednesday rejected a petition to give sanctuary city status the nation’s sixth largest city.  But the issue is not dead.  It’s been referred to a committee for further review after the city hall chambers were jammed with shouting illegal advocates.

Sanctuary cities provide a safe haven for illegal aliens, who are living and working in the United States using stolen or falsified social security numbers and other ID while taking jobs and taxpayer-funded benefits. Among them are criminals who have previously been deported and returned.

Who can forget the senseless murder of Kate Steinle as she walked along the San Francisco pier with her father? The gunman Francisco Sanchez  was an illegal alien  — a repeat drug felon — who had been deported five times. Taken into custody again, the city of San Francisco refused to hold Sanchez for deportation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials because of San Francisco’s “sanctuary city” policy. Sanchez was dumped back out onto the streets where he stole a gun and ultimately killed the 32-year-old Steinle.

Closer to home is the horrific case of Grant Ronnebeck, 21, a Mesa convenience store clerk killed without provocation  over a pack of cigarettes by Mexican-born Apolinar Altamirano, who was arrested following a high-speed chase on at least two valley freeways, endangering countless other lives..

San Francisco was also where sanctuary policies played a role in the slayings of a 48-year-old father and his two sons, 20 and 16 by allowing city officials to shield the killer, Edwin Ramos, from deportation back to his native Salvador, despite his violent criminal history.

These are but a few of thousands such cases across the U.S. They are nothing we want to emulate as a matter of policy.  We need another Republican on the Phoenix City Council to offset the leftward lurch of the liberal majority who sanction sanctuaries.

The fallacy that has been relentlessly promoted for years is that the mayor and council members are non-partisan. Nothing could be further from the truth. When he was elected mayor in 2011, Greg Stanton received a congratulatory call from then-Pres. Barack Obama and Homeland Insecurity Chieftain Janet Napolitano. Stanton is already moving on filing to run for Secretary of State, frequently a dependable path to the governor’s office.

Red state Arizona has a blue stained capitol city, with only two Republicans — Jim Waring (Dist. 2) and Sal DiCiccio (Dist. 6) among the eight council members who represent Republicans in their districts.  Thelda Williams, (Dist. 1), also a registered Republican, is less steadfast, though she issued this statement in opposition to the sanctuary city petition.  Waring and DiCiccio both voted in opposition. After the vote, DiCiccio rightly accused the council of “punting” the issue by forming a committee to make recommendations.  The remaining members newly appointed councilwoman Debra Stark (Dist. 3); Laura Pastor (Dist 4); Daniel Valenzuela (Dist. 5); Michael Nowakowski (Dist. 7); and Kate Gallego Dist. 8) are all liberal Democrats.

Residents of City Council District 3 (map here) will participate in a crucial March 14, 2017 runoff election (complete election info, including early voting under link).  Stark was appointed as an interim to replace Councilman Bill Gates who was elected to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. Gates is a Republican. There is an excellent candidate ready to replace liberal, short-term, appointee Debra Stark.  Chris DeRose, unafraid to declare his political affiliation and with an outstanding resume and a much-needed vibrancy, is the obvious choice.

If you live in Phoenix District 3, commit Chris DeRose’s name to memory.  This is a major election with far-reaching ramifications. It’s too important to mistakenly regard as inconsequential.


Statehood Day: At 105, Arizona’s an eyewitness to fake news

February 14, 2017

Today is Statehood Day. Arizona officially became a state on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 1912.  The newspaper that brought news to the state’s citizens debuted May 19, 1890, over two decades before Arizona moved from territory status to an official state with Gov. George W. P. Hunt at the helm. Readers who disdain the current leftward slant of the Arizona Republic will be surprised to know that its original masthead was the Arizona Republican. Even after the name was changed to the current Arizona Republic, its publisher and newspaper magnate Eugene Pulliam and his wife Nina, held fast to the conservative tone that characterized the content.

After their deaths, the Pulliam’s vast publishing holding Central Newspapers; Inc. was acquired by Gannett, Inc. and the downhill slide began in earnest. When the daily endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in 2016, it heralded the predictable move as being “extraordinary,” writing “never in its long history has the newspaper endorsed a Democrat — for president” (emphasis ours). It certainly has endorsed many Democrats for public office along with promoting reliably liberal issues.  In fact, the Arizona Republic endorsed Democrat Lyndon Johnson over Arizona native Barry Goldwater by omission as reported in the Washington Post.

Admitting Hillary was substandard, the editorial board engaged in overt understatement writing: 

“Make no mistake: Hillary Clinton has flaws. She has made serious missteps.”

Clinton lost as she should have, a fact the editorial board,  reporters, columnists, and the not-so-funny cartoonist at the Arizona Republic can’t seem to wrap their heads around. As they mourn their loss, the content is skewed even further left and President Donald Trump has become the newspaper’s punching bag.

A month before the Nov. 8, presidential election, Dan Nowicki, McCain and Flake’s assigned sycophantic reporter wrote an embarrassing piece titled, “3 reasons why Trump is in trouble in Arizona.” The editorial masquerading as a news report, included these words:

“Despite six trips to the state as a presidential candidate — Trump on Tuesday attracted an estimated 20,000 people to a rally in conservative Prescott Valley —  the celebrity billionaire has not been able to seal  the deal in the state.”

Actually Trump won Arizona handily, capturing all 11 electoral votes.

The markets have responded favorably to Donald Trump. The Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq each hit new all-time highs Monday. The S&P 500 has climbed five days in a row and is up 8.8% since President Trump won the November election. Treasury note yields have also been on an upward trend since Trump assumed office.

Having a businessman rather than a career-long political hack in the White House has obvious benefits. Of course, you’d never know that by reading the Arizona Republic.


Stand with Pres. Trump: Elect Kelli Ward AZ US Senator

February 13, 2017

Deceptive Jeff Flake falling in recent poll

Kelli Ward has an important message for Arizona conservatives. This newly released Political Marketing International poll shows Jeff Flake in a freefall as Kelli Ward continues to pick up support. 

We’ll cut to the chase.  Regardless of how he tries to reconfigure himself, anyone who has been paying even scant attention knows that Flake not only refused to endorse Republican Party nominee Donald Trump, but publicly declared he would not vote for him. That left Hillary Clinton, whether by omission, or the active act of casting a ballot for her, Jeff Flake’s choice for President of the United States.

Continually vacillating on issues of importance to Arizona voters, Jeff Flake is also rated as the most unpopular senator in the country, according to this Channel 3 AZ Family report.

Flake has come to represent what voters despise about Washington, D.C. A Libertarian, he initially sold himself to voters as a conservative since Libertarians don’t get elected. But with his increasingly leftist stances Jeff Flake has been weak on issues of major importance. He’s a reliable amnesty supporter, partnering with McCain and the most liberal senate Democrats. His close association with Barack Obama led him to waffle on the horrific Iran deal which imperils global security and places our ally Israel directly in the crosshairs of a nuclear Iran.  He has been intolerant toward conservatives, even suggesting apurge of those wanting to restrict immigration from terror sponsoring nations, a move reminiscent of McCain’s calculated attempts to oust conservatives from the Arizona Republican Party.

In the early 1990’s Jeff Flake worked as a Washington 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 Namibia.  Flake earned between $5,000 and $7,000 per month opening doors in the nation’s capital and promoting the firm with financial ties to Iran

Acquaint yourself with Dr. Kelli Ward’s impressive bio .Check out the strong principled stands that underscore her campaign.

Arizona Congressmen who were posed to take on McCain in previous elections mysteriously lost their enthusiasm and each in turn stepped aside.  In political circles, it’s known as the horse’s head in the bed. McCain operatives don’t have to place the bloody head of a massive stallion under the covers of a reckless challenger. But the message is given and received loud and clear.

Kelli Ward doesn’t fall into that category. She boldly took on the deeply entrenched John McCain, whose deep pockets were filled with lobbyist cash and outspent her 10 to 1, outrageously lying about her throughout the campaign.

Jeff Flake is concluding his first senate term and is vulnerable. He‘s proven his disregard for Arizona voters when he described “the beauty of a six-year term” alluding to what he hopes are our short-term memories.

It’s important to make a commitment to volunteer and donate to Kelli Ward’s campaign. It matters.

Jeff Sessions confirmed as USAG: Why lone Dem voted aye

February 9, 2017

The U. S. Senate on Wednesday confirmed President Trump’s U.S. Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions. His stellar legal career will be an asset to the Trump administration and the American people.

The vote was 52 – 47. (view here) with a single Democrat — West Virginia’s Joe Manchin —  deviating from the party line. The Senate’s two Independents voted with the Democrats. Sessions voted “present.”

West Virginia gave Donald Trump a landslide victory of 68.65% to Hillary Clinton’s meager showing of 26.46%.

Democrat Manchin is a longtime politician, having been elected to the state House and Senate, as Secretary of State and Governor, before being elected U. S. Senator in Nov. 2010.  He’s learned a few things along the way.  First and foremost is his coal producing state was thrown under the bus by his party’s presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as she promised toput a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” (video)

Watch as a laid off coal miner confronts Hillary (video) and she lies to his face about her actual agenda. 

In 2008, presidential candidate Obama previously vowed to bankrupt the coal industry (video) as he spoke with the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Manchin will be running for reelection in 2018. That fact is reflected in his vote.

No wonder the leading coal producing state of West Virginia has had its fill of Democrats and Sen. Joe Manchin treads carefully. Miners who toil underground,  risking their lives to provide energy, their friends and family vote.
