Destitute invaders sue US gov’t aided by leftist lawyer

September 18, 2019

American citizens, weary of the invasion of our sovereign border, first by Mexican nationals and then by hundreds of thousands of Central Americans, have a new problem to deal with.  Feeding, clothing, housing, educating their children, providing free medical services and incarcerating the criminals among them is not enough.

These impoverished foreign nationals, warmly referred to by their advocates as “migrants,” are now suing us.

How can that be you might ask. They don’t speak English. They have broken into our country as surely as if they rammed their way through the front door of our home. They have no money to hire lawyers. 

Yet somehow they are able to accuse the U.S. government, claiming “the Trump administration has violated the rights of asylum-seekers through the arbitrary and capricious implementation of a virtual asylum ban at the southern border.”

Pretty fancy jargon for over 125 uneducated illegal aliens — described as “mothers and children.” Discerning American citizens no doubt smell a rat. An Arizona Capitol Times editorial  by former Gov. Jan Brewer illuminates the Trump administration’s implementation of DNA testing at the border, substantiating many of the children are exploited, and not even related to the adults with whom they they are traveling. Children are used to provide legitimacy to their claims of seeking asylum.

Fortunately, the U.S. Supreme Court just ruled the administration can bar illegal aliens from applying for asylum if they pass through another country — routinely Mexico — without seeking asylum there before arriving in the United States.

Hopefully, the lawsuit, filed by Virginia/D.C. based immigration lawyer Hassan M. Ahmed, will put to rest his political aspirations. Taking a substantial hit, Ahmad lost the June 11, 2019 primary for a seat in the Virginia House of Delegates — the equivalent of a state legislator in Arizona.

Describing himself as a “progressive Democrat” he threatened:

“The people of Northern Virginia need for our next representative to be more than a reliable Democratic vote; we need an advocate, someone who can work within the rules when they benefit everyone and will bring the community together to change them when they don’t.”

An anti-Second Amendment and NRA reviler who blithely flings the word “racist” around to describe Republicans, Ahmad advocated “undertaking an investigation into the extent of the damage the NRA has done to the health of our communities in Virginia, and hold this extreme organization to account.”

What he considers “extreme” doesn’t include innocent life, which has no relevance to the immoral pro-abortion crusader. He claims that both the criminal justice and immigration systems are badly broken. Hassan Ahmad must be gauging them by his own moral compass.

Raw deceit keeps local columnist Montini employed

June 24, 2019

When one lies for a living, telling the truth doesn’t come easy. Being employed when colleagues have been given their walking papers in systematic cutbacks, no doubt presents a conundrum.  It’s good to have a salary, though tough to know former co-workers are facing hardships.  But disgorging odious spew three days a week is what keeps the bills paid. And if you’re E. J. Montini, writing columns for the Arizona Republic newspaper, bile automatically erupts by way of your leftist politics.  Dishonesty? That’s your stock in trade.

You’ve hung on longer by repeating falsehoods and denigrating American patriots who were repeatedly elected to office by Arizona voters.  Revulsion for Republicans oozes from your every pore.

The headline of Montini’s recent column contains the words “Operation Wetback,” relating to a mass deportation of illegal aliens in the 1950’s. The program was put into effect during the Eisenhower administration with the support of the Mexican government, facing a national worker shortage, since a majority of the illegals crossing the border were young men. It was only later when the Mexican government realized the value of reparations, bolstering its economy by over $30 billion each year, that it worked to facilitate the invasion.

The fascinating thing about liars is the ease with which they spin tall tales. Nowhere in the column is Pres. Eisenhower mentioned. Known as “Ike” he was the popular, two-term president who was a five-star general in the U.S. Army during World War II and served as the first supreme commander of NATO. He had previously been president of Columbia University.

Most assuredly not a bigot, in 1957 he ordered federal troops to Little Rock, Arkansas to protect nine black children integrating into a public school — the first time the US federal government ordered troops in the South since the end of the Civil War.

Though Eisenhower was mysteriously absent from Montini’s screed, President Donald Trump was maligned, hammered and battered for desiring to halt the unfettered invasion of our country by illegals. The United States welcomes approximately a million legal immigrants each year with the reasonable expectation of assimilation, which is too few and too restrictive for the ethically challenged E.J.

Also worthy of bashing are former Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce, who sponsored SB 1070 (actual title: “Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act”), and former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whose deputies enforced the law, signed by Gov. Jan Brewer in 2010. Major portions of the law were later gutted by a federal court judge.

What do Trump, Pearce and Arpaio have in common? They are all men of unquestioned patriotism, principled courage and a deep commitment to the United States of America.

Those patriotic traits rankle Montini, who robotically tailors his vacuous verbal vomit to fit the newspaper’s agenda — facts be damned. He’s earning his keep.


Fmr. Sen. Steve Pierce replaces perv Stringer

April 4, 2019

That’s obviously not our best headline, since no one with any degree of principle would be a replacement for disgraced child rapist, pedophile, and child porn aficionado David Stringer. Though Stringer maintained he served no time for his crimes, he accepted a plea deal, including five years probation on the charges. Stringer resigned March 27, when the hideous facts became irrefutable…and got even worse, as reported by the local newspaper.

Prescott rancher Steve Pierce, 69, has been selected by the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors to complete the House term. Pierce was previously a state senator from 2009-2017 and served as senate president from 2011-2012. He has indicated he will serve out the rest of the term, but will not run for election.

Make no mistake. Pierce is neither a fiscal nor social conservative. During his previous term, he was a supporter of expanding the Medicaid provisions of Obamacare, not a popular Republican position.

Former Arizona Secretary of State and senate president, Ken Bennett who challenged Doug Ducey as a Clean Elections candidate in 2018, would have been our preference. He adamantly opposed the expansion, saying, “Obamacare is the biggest job killer and destroyer of small business in history. And the entire U.S. has it because of Gov. Ducey and Sen. McCain.” His full quote is here.

In 2014, after supporting SB1062, known as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Steve Pierce described his action by saying, “I screwed up,” after getting heat from the LBGTQ community and the ACLU. Gov. Brewer also caved to the loudest voices and vetoed the bill that had mainstream support.

Fortunately we now have conservative leadership at the AZ GOP following the January election of Dr. Kelli Ward as state chairman and a reliable supporter of President Donald Trump.  Join the team.  Become a precinct committeeman.

Call (602) 957-7770 and find out who your district chairman is to get the ball rolling.


Want news? Failing AZ Republic invites you to write it

Editorial Page editor Boas’ shocking metamorphosis into a beggar 

It’s no secret the Arizona Republic is on its last legs. The situation has turned so dire for the local newspaper, that its parent company, Gannett, Co. Inc. recently laid off its Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist to save a few bucks. The action even threw the newspaper for a loop, featuring an editorial bidding a fond farewell to Steve Benson and his talented but venomous pen. This boot follows previous massive layoffs preceded by large scale buyouts of senior staffers.

A quick Internet search reveals countless publications detailing the company’s layoffs and overall wretched state. The Wall Street Journal recently headlined its report,Gannett’s Loss Widens as Ad, Circulation Revenue Fall.” Its been death by a thousand cuts, with so little coursing life blood left that the anorexic publication relies on vapid ASU Cronkite Journalism School student reporters who write as colloquially they speak. The absurdity could be entertaining, if you enjoy farce.  

But there is a bright light at the end of this darkened tunnel.

Editorial Page editor Phil Boas, is, of course, a deep thinker. Who could forget Boas? He’s the guy who dedicated years of his life to the craven pursuit of taking down popular 6-term Republican Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio — his own father-in-law.  Boas oversaw the endorsement of the problem plagued Democrat with this headline: “Elect Paul Penzone, not Sheriff Showboat.” After Penzone was elected, the new sheriff referred to illegal aliens as “guests.”

Now, functioning with editorless staff, a couple of far-leftwing columnists, and mostly purchased content, Boas has had to become inventive. His latest cost-cutting gimmick is called “Voices.” That’s the slick way he sells what they are not paying for but expect you to provide — previously known as op-ed pages. Those haven’t existed in the left-wing echo chamber for years. Not only can’t the newspaper afford established conservative opinion writers, it definitely doesn’t want them.

But the fact remains subscriptions are continuing to tank because few Trump-supporters can tolerate the elitist radical leftism that oozes off every page of the Hillary-endorsing newspaper. Boas and his like-thinking ideologues are bonded to the policy of insulting the very people who pay their increasingly overpriced subscription rates for emaciated editions.

Yet Boas farcically writes, “…we began our experiment with conservative writers [former Gov. Jan Brewer who pushed Medicaid expansion, was the odd choice]. And for a reason. After Donald Trump won election, most newspapers could not turn to their in-house and syndicated conservatives to express pro-Trump points of view, because so many media conservatives opposed Trump. I fit that category.”

After admitting his own bias against President Trump, Boas doesn’t name any conservatives on the Arizona Republic’s staff —- because he can’t. Even Libertarian-leaning Robert Robb has fallen in with the newspaper’s standard.

Most pathetically, following articles is this plea: “Support local journalism. Subscribe….today.” (We omitted the link the failing newspaper provided.)  The big-time beg should be written on corrugated cardboard with a black marker and held up for passing traffic on Van Buren Street by Editorial Page editor Phil Boas.


Lesko’s AZ CD8 victory? You can’t believe your lyin’ eyes

April 26, 2018

Dejected Arizona Republic skews the news….again

Dang! We thought Republican Debbie Lesko won the AZ Congressional District 8 Special Election Tuesday night. We watched as the votes were tallied, and saw the broad smile on former Arizona Senate President Pro-Tempore Debbie Lesko’s face as her hand was held aloft by former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer. We saw Lesko plant a smooch on her husband, and joyfully introduce her son and daughter.  We even thought we heard cheers and applause. Apparently it was all a wishful apparition.

According to the Arizona Republic newspaper, what we witnessed was a post mortem. Those cheers were wails, as mourning Republicans realized the victory wasn’t decisive enough.  Leftwing reporters Yvonne Wingett Sanchez and Ronald Hansen, called it “lackluster and tepid“ and termed what we thought was a victory, “a wake up call.”

The article doesn’t mention the fact that liberal Democrat challenger Hiral Tipirneni played fast and loose with the truth in campaign ads depicting her in scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck, at a patient’s bedside. In fact, she has not practiced medicine since 2007, after a serious medical malpractice charge was brought against her. In the intervening years she’s been a dedicated lobbyist for Obamacare.

To bolster its contention that Lesko’s win was less than a victory, the newspaper quoted a misguided Republican who voted for Tipirneni. It also quotes Arizona Democrat Party Chair Felecia Rotellini, who knows a thing or two about losing elections. “The same chaos and dysfunction that we’re seeing in the Republican GOP in D.C. is reflected in Arizona’s GOP, (and) the lack of leadership, the lack of a platform that speaks to Arizona,” adding “the voters have awakened.”

Rotellini ran twice for Arizona Attorney General and though trounced by the Republican candidates in 2010 and 2014, she stubbornly waited days to concede her losses.

The elephant in the newsroom is Lesko’s unwavering support of President Donald Trump, called “broadly unpopular,” by the Hillary Clinton endorsing newspaper — which ignores his list of accomplishments and the wide range of support he enjoys among his loyalists.

This morning’s editorial oddly consists of a dialogue between the unhinged members of the editorial board and their shameless editor. They are unable to fathom the voter rejection of their Second Amendment restrictionist and pro-abortion supporter, who opposes actual border security. Tipirneni used verbal contortions in an attempt to carefully conceal the facts of her liberalism that is far out of step with the district and the editorial board is reeling.  They regard CD 8 voters as being easily duped.

If you still get skewed information from the Arizona Republic, let us give you the good news: Conservative Debbie Lesko, an unapologetic Trump supporting,  pro-Second Amendment and pro-life candidate who also stressed national and border security, support of our military, tax reform and parental choice in education, won!


Supremes give AZ supremely foolish silent treatment

March 20, 2018

Without even trying to rationalize its decision, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s efforts to uphold a 6-year old executive order issued by then-Gov. Jan Brewer, which denied driver’s licenses to those known as DACA recipients — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Though characterized as children brought to the United States by their illegal alien parents, there is no means of verifying the claims. Those who have signed up for DACA are shielded from deportation, allowed driver’s licenses and given work permits.

They need only affirm they were 16 years of age or younger when they initially entered the United States and are currently 35 years of age or younger. They have to declare that they have been persons of good moral character since initially being brought to the U.S. as children by their parents — illegally. Authenticating how many came as babes in arms or ably propelled themselves over the border last year at age 34 is impossible to substantiate. As we’ve previously pointed out many of these “kids” could actually be grandparents. 

“Our case has always been about more than just driver’s licenses,” Attorney General Brnovich said in a statement. “It’s about the separation of powers and whether the president, any president, can unilaterally act and bypass Congress to create new laws.”

This ongoing legal issue was precipitated by Barack Obama and was stopped dead in its tracks on Monday. Read the May 22, 2017 petition to the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, which begins with the “Question Presented“ and ends with the “Conclusion” which authorized the denial, stating it did “not warrant the Court‘s consideration.”

That is exactly what occurred yesterday at the U.S. Supreme Court.

For the U.S. Supreme Court to remain silent on this crucial issue is shameful.


SPI Douglas follows predecessors: rebrands Common Core

January 13, 2017

Breitbart News stuns with the headlined article, “Arizona State Board of Education ‘Rebrands’ Common Core.” Yes, the same Common Core that had parents throughout the state so riled, they elected unknown Diane Douglas as Arizona’s Superintendent of Public Instruction based on her promise to repeal the so-called standards.

Seeing Red AZ celebrated Douglas’ huge win opposing Common Core as she trounced the incumbent in the Sept. 2, 2014 Primary Election. In the comment section of this post, she noted she was “honored to have our support and endorsement.” 

Conservative syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin was an early endorser. She also praised Douglas for calling out Arizona Common Core promoters for their devious rebranding scheme.

Arizona parents have previously been through this “rebranding” con. Gov. Jan Brewer and Douglas’ predecessor John Huppenthal already pulled a fast one as they magically re-christened Common Core as “Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards” — hoping no one would notice. Malkin devoted countless columns to exposing the federal overreach that aims to place control of local schools in the hands of unelected Washington bureaucrats.

In Sept. 2013 SRAZ posted “Educrat trio: Huppenthal, Brewer, AZ Republic,” exposing the deceitful scheme to which Diane Douglas appeared to be the antidote. She wasn’t. 

Diane Douglas rode the anti-Common Core horse to the winner’s circle. Now she’s exposed as throwing the race.
