AZ Gov. Ducey follows TX Gov. Greg Abbott busing illegals to D.C.

May 14, 2022

Abbott has announced Texas brought 922 illegals to the nation’s capital in 35 buses. Will Ducey follow that example?

In a move that would be certain to inflame his open-border mentor Señor Juan McAmnesty, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has begun busing illegal alien invaders to Washington, D.C.

Following Gov. Greg Abbott’s successful plan, which has delighted Texans and agitated D.C. insiders, unable to conceive of the Southwestern border calamity to which they have turned a blind eye, impacting their elite environs.

It’s known as retaliation.

Just prior to his more recent follow-the-leader imitation, Ducey bizarrely called on leftist tech giants to aid in stopping drug and human exploitation crimes, beginning his letter with the words, “It’s no secret our southern border is a mess.”

No kidding.

As governor of Arizona, a border state seriously impacted by illegal invaders who suffer no consequences for their actions, Ducey is finally showing concern about the crisis under which Arizona’s citizens have long endured and been forced to finance with our tax dollars.

If these numbers from FAIR (Federation for American Immigration Reform) detailing the Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on the United States seem shocking, bear in mind they are from 2017. The Biden administration has irreparably opened the floodgates since then, appointing Alejandro Mayorkas, an immigrant, (probably illegal) from Communist Cuba, as Homeland Security Secretary, acclaimed as the first Latino in that position, by a president who is driven by “Firsts.”

Ducey, who is unable to run again due to term limits, has something up his sleeve. The question is, “What?”


Expansion of parental rights in education belittled in local newspaper

May 3, 2022

Duplicity reigns at leftist Arizona Republic

Rating prominent placement in the Valley & State section is a report headlined, “These contentious education bills now law.”

The report begins with these words:

“Two controversial education bills that would create procedures for parents to review library books and allow parents to sue if they believe a school has violated their access to a student’s records were signed into law by Gov. Doug Ducey.” 

The slippery, agenda-driven reporter obviously means “their” child rather than “a” child’s student records.  This deceit is standard operating procedure at the Hillary-endorsing, open-border promoting, failing newspaper.

Reporter Yana Kunichoff, a Chicago transplant, cites House Bill 2161 and House Bill 2439 as examples of what she views as egregious parental overreaches that warrant the descriptive words “controversial” and “contentious.”

If you are among the few who still subscribe to this overpriced, putrid garbage masquerading as news…Cancel! Tired of having your intelligence insulted? Cancel! Call 1-800-332-6733. You’ll get someone in the Philippines who is paid 50% less than an American-based employee as the dying newspaper tries to keep costs down.


MC Attorney’s Office pro Rachel Mitchell sworn in, signaling a return of professionalism

April 21, 2022

Board of Supervisors appoints experienced career prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to complete the term of disgraced Allister Adel

Residents of Maricopa County, the nation’s fourth largest and fastest growing county, have watched in horror as the prosecutor’s office has devolved from a respected office to a floundering and demoralized agency with the appointment and then election of Allister Adel, who brought her multitude of personal problems to the job where she rarely showed up due to her ongoing in-and-out-of-state residential treatment for alcohol abuse, depression and an eating disorder.

Adel brought one qualification, the newly elevated double X chromosomes, that placed her at the top of the list for consideration when then-county attorney Bill Montgomery was gifted with a seat on the newly, and unnecessarily expanded Arizona Supreme Court by Gov. Doug Ducey.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors announced the appointment of Rachel Mitchell as Maricopa County Attorney in this April 20, 2022 news bulletin. But it’s not over for the well-qualified office veteran Mitchell who was the chief deputy and then served as interim Maricopa County Attorney following Montgomery’s move. After an August GOP Primary with two other declared candidates — who would do us all a favor by sitting this race out — she’ll face a democrat running for the position in the November 22 General Election. The winner will serve as county attorney through 2024.

Allister Adel’s letter of resignation, dated March 22, 2022, ends the unprecedented and pathetic saga. which has been ongoing and worsening as we pointed out in the following posts:

June 22, 2021:   Diversity, inclusion go off the rails at MC Attorney’s Office

Sept. 13, 2021:   MC Attorney Allister Adel finally admits truth, seeks treatment

Oct. 25, 2021:    MC Attorney Adel announces it’s a great time to be a criminal

Feb. 8, 2022:      MC Attorney Allister Adel: Absurdity of “firsts” superseding finest

Feb. 16, 2022:    Embarrassing MC Attorney Allister Adel digs in her wobbly heels

March 17, 2022: Incompetent MC Attorney Allister Adel should be disbarred

New numbers show Biden committed to changing USA

April 2, 2022

True to form, the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating local newspaper headlines its coverage using the word “controversial” to define Title 42

Knowing full well that American voters are weary of him and the policies which his handlers have plagued the United States, Joe Biden is hoping for a voter base that will keep democrats in office in the upcoming midterm elections. Grateful illegal aliens are the manna from heaven to accomplish that otherwise impossible scheme.

Fox News national correspondent Bill Melugin reports on the ‘jaw-dropping’ number of illegal aliens who have evaded border agents:

“More than 62,000 [illegals]* evaded Border Patrol agents in March, averaging about 2,000 a day, according to multiple Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sources — showing the extent to which Border Patrol agents are already being overwhelmed by the massive number of [foreign nationals] from various nations trying to get into the United States.

According to those same CBP sources there have been more than 300,000 known “gotaways” — [illegals] who were not apprehended or turned themselves in and who got past agents — since fiscal year 2022 began on October 1st. For comparison, former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott said there had been approximately 400,000 “gotaways” in the entirety of FY 2021.”

Biden’s answer to this apocalypse is to remove Title 42, put in place by President Trump. Proving that this is a matter affecting all Americans, democrat Sen. Joe Manchin (WV) called Biden’s reversal “a frightening decision.”

According to April 1, news reports, the Biden administration announced it will be terminating the Title 42 public health policy, implemented by the Trump administration to quickly expel illegals at the southern border since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak. This comes despite expectations of a massive surge of illegal aliens in the coming months before the summer desert heat makes the invasion more dangerous. These were the White House Press Releases. That announcement was not among them.

Make time to read this important April I, news release titled, “Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey Calls On Biden Administration To Maintain Title 42.”

The term-limited Arizona governor who publicly refused to answer a cell phone call playing the distinctive ring tone, “Hail to the Chief” from then-President Donald Trump is now having second thoughts about the Trump-era policies.

* Fox News now uses the equivocal terms migrant and undocumented. SRAZ refers to those illegally invading our country as “illegal aliens.”

MC Attorney Allister Adel: Absurdity of “firsts” superseding finest

February 8, 2022

When a vacancy occurred in the top leadership post at the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, as AZ Gov. Doug Ducey needlessly expanded the state’s Supreme Court to pave the way for two of his friends to don black robes, an equally qualified replacement should have been a priority. Former MCA Attorney Bill Montgomery had a tough last race as Maricopa County Attorney coping with socialist billionaire George Soros prioritizing funding radical leftist candidates in prosecutor’s offices across the nation, as the NY Post reported.

We live in a time when “firsts” are considered primary. On the national level that concept led to a less qualified candidate, Kamala Harris, being selected as Joe Biden’s VP running mate. She is not only the first female vice president, but also “a woman of color.”

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors felt the need to jump on that bandwagon, appointing Allister Adel as the first female county attorney. Her previous background was lackluster, and the last years of her employment prior to being appointed to lead the nation’s third largest prosecutor’s office were in the private sector unrelated to law.

Following her appointment as a theoretical Republican succeeding an actual Republican, Adel continued in a foolish emotional mode. Not only did she dismiss charges against anti-police rioters, she was eventually forced to acknowledge her alcoholism and other longstanding problems, ranging from an eating disorder to anxiety. Allister Adel has taken time off work for out-of-state in-treatment, and is gone so frequently, she has left the crucial office floundering and understaffed as her indefensible lack of leadership during her frequent absences has demoralized the staff.

When Adel is less than forthright about the length of time she’s spent in various residential treatment facilities, her chief of staff dutifully refers to the mismatched stories she tells as “blending.”

Prioritizing plumbing over capability is a recipe for disaster. Thank the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors — which incidentally does not have a female among its ranks  — for being so forward thinking. Next time they should include sobriety among what they consider essential qualification.

Allister Adel must be replaced. Plumbing considerations should be reserved for bathroom remodeling.


Gov. Ducey suddenly motivated to education action 

January 5, 2022

The rumor mill has been rife with talk of term-limited Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey having an itch to relocate to D.C. in some political capacity. As we noted on Dec. 26, 2020, the former ice cream tycoon and his wife sold their gated 11,412 sq. ft. Paradise Valley golf course fairway mansion and 1,200 sq. ft. guest house situated on 2.14 acres, at a discounted rate of $8,150,000, obviously in preparation for his next adventure. His term ends on January 1, 2023, and he’s readying for another gig.

Speculation regarding lame-duck AZ Gov. Doug Ducey’s future plans have been running the gamut, though his national profile is not in the realm of Governors Ron DeSantis (FL) or Greg Abbott (TX).

He’s been quiet of late, not noticeably rocking the political boat except for his needless expansion of the Arizona Supreme Court, obviously thinking two of his friends, neither of whom had tried a case in years, would look sharp in black. There was also that newsworthy snub of then-President Trump, calling Ducey with his distinctive “Hail to the Chief” ring tone and Ducey pointedly ignoring it in front of Trump-disdaining reporters, who made sure it got the attention Ducey clearly desired.  A longtime McCain ally, initially employed by Cindy Hensley McCain at her Hensley Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship when he first arrived in Arizona to attend ASU, their friendship blossomed to the point that John McCain encouraged the then-ice cream mogul Ducey to run for governor.

Ducey’s political future is definitely on his mind as he issued this bullet-pointed January 4, 2022 News Release announcing he was taking “preemptive action to ensure in-person learning remains an option for all Arizona families and students, consistent with guidance from public health experts.” Ducey refers to it as creating an “Open for Learning Recovery Benefit Program.”

Demanding students be kept in class has not exactly been a priority for Ducey, who coddled the striking “#Reds For Ed” teachers who abandoned, for over two weeks, over 840,000 statewide students, as they followed then-24-year-old Noah Karvelis, an eager Socialist Labor Party member and 2016 AZ Bernie Sanders campaign coordinator, demanding 20% pay hikes for their part-time jobs…do you get the entire summer off? Ducey hung tough for a brief moment and then capitulated to the union members demands, emboldening them to get behind Marxist Proposition 208, a ballot measure that provides a perpetually increasing money stream, under the guise of “tax the rich,” a fallacious democrat advanced scheme.

Ducey didn’t have the fortitude exhibited by Pres. Ronald Reagan in 1981 when the PATCO Union Air Traffic Control workers threatened to walk off the job, potentially shutting down U.S. air travel. Reagan gave them a deadline and fired those who refused to comply. Supervisors and management filled in until new replacements were able to take over the reins. There were no disruptions. 


Schizophrenic* Biden disapproved of vax mandates before he embraced them

September 10, 2021

Slo-Joe wages war on Americans more aggressively than on the Taliban

As president-elect in December 2020, Joe Biden unequivocally stated  that COVID vaccinations should not be mandated by the government. He held the same view about masks, as reported in the New York Post.

Now he’s done a complete about-face, even going so far as to use your personal freedom not to be inoculated as a legitimate cause for terminating your employment.

His campaign rhetoric took a hike, along with his brain cells, when he signed yet another Executive Order on Thursday — bypassing Congress — demanding U.S. companies — Including schools, health care facilities and federal contractors, require employees be vaccinated as a condition of employment. Read its alarming provisions. Government employees and members of the armed forces are also caught up in Biden’s web, and are denied an option for regular coronavirus testing to opt out of the mandate. American Indian tribes are specifically exempt.

Also on Thursday, he ordered mandatory vaccination for nearly 300,000 educators in the federal Head Start Program. He announced that he would use the Defense Production Act to increase the production of rapid testing kits and would work with retailers including Amazon and Walmart to expand their availability. Biden also said the Transportation Security Administration would now double fines on passengers who refuse to wear masks, among other steps.

“If you break the rules, be prepared to pay — and by the way, show some respect,” Biden declared.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey responded with this news release, calling Biden’s actions “Dictatorial.”

Acquaint yourself with Biden’s oddly undated “Path out of the Pandemic/Covid-18 Action Plan,” directly from the White House website. It clearly spells out the loss of freedom and constriction of our rights. Silence is acquiescence, which in turn leads to dominance.

Tucson supports anti-2nd Amendment restrictions

July 7, 2021

Tucson, Arizona has long been known as the ‘People’s Republic of Pima’ due to its radically leftward bent, as democrats significantly outnumber Republicans.

It’s living up to that reputation as noted in this article in the Tucson Daily Star, written by Kathryn Palmer, headlined, “Tucson’s challenge to ‘2nd Amendment sanctuary’ law is latest in local control saga.” It details the collusion between Tucson Mayor Regina Romero and the accommodating Tucson City Council which unanimously passed a resolution saying the state of Arizona is not obliged to uphold federal gun laws.

The council’s action “prohibits the state and political subdivisions from using any personnel or financial resources to enforce, administer or cooperate with any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the U.S. government that is inconsistent with any Arizona law regarding the regulation of firearms,” effectively making Arizona a Second Amendment sanctuary state emulating the cites that provide “sanctuary” to illegal aliens. This is the council’s version of flipping off Second Amendment supporting citizens.

The City of Tucson has effectively thumbed its nose at Constitution supporting citizens and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signed the straightforward HB 2111 — titled, “Second Amendment Firearm Freedom Act” — into law. The bill, passed by the AZ House and Senate bars in-state enforcement of any federal firearm laws which violate the Second Amendment, by prohibiting police and sheriffs from enforcing federal gun laws that violate the 2nd Amendment.”

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.


Calif. launches vaccine passports cloaked as convenience

June 19, 2021

Americans who have received both COVID-19 vaccines were handed a card with the admonishment to “keep it with you, like a driver’s license.”  The card notes the dates of the inoculations, granting certain privileges such as allowing recipients to travel freely and attend indoor events and even college.  Having such a document invokes the dreaded, “Show me your papers” mandate that is a cultural metaphor for life in a police state.

The pandemic is essentially over, but governmental control over American citizens is just beginning.

California democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom, who is the subject of a recall, has said that the system he has put in place does not constitute a “vaccine passport” that businesses would use to filter people who are not vaccinated, though it does a good job of portraying one. Newsom mandates that entities hosting large indoor gatherings, such as concerts or sports events, verify that all attendees either have proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test or vaccination.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order on April 19, 2021, stating that no business can demand verification of inoculation. 

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a democrat, heads the only state that has an official vaccine passport, known as the Excelsior Pass, which is linked to its state vaccination database, and verifies vaccination status — an overreach and massive invasion of privacy that should terrify any American.

Though California’s portal functions as a website, rather than an app, it’s otherwise essentially the same thing, according to California’s chief technology innovation officer, Rick Klau.

“This is very similar in concept to what New York launched with Excelsior Pass, which is an opportunity for a resident, in our case the state of California, to have a digital copy of their vaccination record,” Klau said.

“An opportunity?” Giving up privacy for convenience is a slippery slope no thinking American should willingly travel.
