Reacting to outcry, AZ Gov. Ducey OKs partial reopenings

May 5, 2020

Ducey will also be on hand to greet President Trump today

Bowing to pressure, Gov. Doug Ducey has issued an Executive Order allowing salons and barber shops to resume appointment-based services this Friday, May 8. Restaurants and coffee shops will be able to resume dine-in services with physical distancing measures on Monday, May 11.

This is the official “Whereas” laden document, complete with an embossed gold state seal, official signature and attested to by the illegible signature of the AZ Secretary of State.

Massive rallies by citizens who desperately want to get back to work, and were armed with petitions demanding his recall, obviously pushed Doug Ducey’s sensible buttons.

Gov. Ducey, keenly aware of the need to placate Arizona conservatives, will be on hand to welcome President Trump today. We should not forget, however, that along with McCain and Flake, Ducey intentionally boycotted Donald Trump‘s initial Phoenix Convention Center campaign rally in July 2015. So many supporters requested tickets, the venue had to be moved three times to accommodate the enormous crowd, though many still had to be turned away due to fire code restrictions.

Pres. Trump will be in Phoenix touring a Honeywell facility producing protective face masks. Sen. Martha McSally is accompanying the president to Arizona on Air Force One. U.S. Reps. Debbie Lesko (CD-8) and Paul Gosar (CD-4) are also flying from D.C. to Phoenix with President Trump.


AZ Gov. Doug Ducey’s curious connection

April 29, 2020

We’ve recently become acquainted with the conservative site National File.* The following attention grabbing article by investigative journalist and Breitbart alumni Patrick Howley deserves to be redirected to Arizonans who might not have discovered its fact-filled pages. It’s important to readArizona Governor Sits on Board of Group Doing Testing, Affiliate of Prospective Coronavirus Vaccine Maker,” which unequivocally poses the question of a conflict of interest.

That report links to this Arizona Capitol Times article detailing,Ducey could have sole discretion over a large pot of state, federal aid funds.”

This page features the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) Board of Directors/Governors. Gov. Ducey is a stand-out, with the flags of Arizona and the United States providing the patriotic backdrop to his photo.

How reassuring it is to know that TGen has a conflict of interest policy posted on its site. Whether it has ever been enforced presents a broader question.

Mitt Romney & Kyrsten Sinema? Not such strange bedfellows

April 28, 2020

Learning that Senators Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) have teamed up to bash “the administration” for not getting specific information regarding the numbers of patients and the spread of the Coronavirus out fast enough, is not nearly as odd as it may initially appear.  Nominal Republican Romney and Sinema, a former Green Party member, who dipped her toe into the Communist waters on more than one occasion before realizing she could ride the Democrat donkey all the way to the U.S. Senate, actually have quite a lot in common.

Both were raised in the LDS Church and each received their BA degrees from Brigham Young University. Romney stayed with the faith, even going on a church mission to France where he became fluent enough in French to later troll himself online using the nom de plume, Pierre Delecto. Openly bi-sexual Sinema veered into atheism, refusing to take her oath of office on the Bible. Both Romney and Sinema went to law school, though neither practiced law. Each delights in throwing brick bats at President Trump. And when the Democrats pulled their sham impeachment trickery, both Sinema and Romney voted for conviction. Romney, who Pres. Trump wisely turned down as he came begging for the Secretary of State position, was the sole Senate Republican to vote with the Dems. Previously he was a registered Independent and voted for Democrat presidential candidate Paul Tsongas, an early Biden cohort. Miffed Mitt, who has never connected with conservatives, lost his presidential bids in 2008 and 2012.

This letter sent to Dr. Robert Redfield. Director at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was originally made public on POLITICO. In it, the anti-Trump duo expressed their “deep concern that federal public health officials are behind the curve in assessing public health threat levels, because they lack immediate visibility into population health data.”

There’s lots of curve talk these days. “Flatten the curve” is the newest jargon relating to cracking down on the virus. Romney and Sinema are worried we’re “behind the curve.” Meanwhile Pres. Trump and his medical team are making record progress on controlling the spread of the deadly virus, while working to get Americans back to work and our national recovery underway.

They are navigating this unanticipated scourge that has thrown our nation, previously experiencing an unparalleled, soaring economy, into a tailspin. None of us have ever lived through anything as personally constraining as we are now. The last global pandemic was the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic that killed an estimated 20 million to 50 million victims, including approximately 675,000 Americans. 

This continually updating Coronavirus tracker displays the number of “active, recovered and fatal cases” by state and worldwide — including the most recent updates reported in Arizona.


Fact-free politics exemplified by Dem. Mark Kelly

April 27, 2020

Beware of Soros funded Democrats bearing deceit

Before he retired, far too young at age 88, Dr. Thomas Sowell, the brilliant economist and conservative surveyor of the American scene wrote a column titled, “Fact-Free Politics.” Although this particular commentary, written prior to the Wuhan Coronavirus global pandemic, dealt with science and economics, his premise remains relevant in these unprecedented times, when healthy Americans are quarantined — unable to go to work or school — due to a virus that originated in China while the rest of the world was subjected to its misinformation campaign.

The relevance exists because election year politics never take a break. Widespread unemployment doesn’t affect candidates who emulate China and flood the airwaves with distorted disinformation. 

Democrat Mark Kelly, the unemployed husband of former AZ U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, has a variation on Cinderella’s fairy godmother, who provided her with a gold coach and enabled her to go to the ball and meet Prince Charming. 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 began running ads in March in advance of the August 4, primary election. They are filled with slick copy aimed at erasing his leftism, falsely portraying him as a savior when it comes to drug prices and never using the hot button word “Democrat,” a slick deception that worked successfully for far left Kyrsten Sinema, who magically reinvented herself as a senate candidate. For a memory jogger, we direct you toKyrsten Sinema’s devious metamorphosis.” It lays the groundwork for Mark Kelly’s deceptive political tactics.

This is the March 31, 2020 mandated Federal Election Commission report. It’s been reported that many of John McCain’s top donors have shifted their allegiance to Democrat Kelly, which should not surprise anyone who‘s been paying attention.

President Trump has unequivocally endorsed incumbent Republican Sen. Martha McSally, even inviting her to share the stage with him at his spectacular Feb. 19th Phoenix rally.

Voters shouldn’t be conned by Kelly’s ads falsely claiming he will bring down the price of prescription drugs. What he actually is committed to bringing down is President Trump, who he acknowledged he would have voted to impeach in the Democrat-led Senate sham. That fakery drove his fundraising efforts among leftists who desire to turn Arizona blue.  Democrats are motivated by their desperation to hamstring President Trump’s judicial appointments. During his first term, he replaced two retiring Supreme Court Justices with Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, who desperate Senate Dems tried in vain to destroy. He’s filled federal bench vacancies with constitutionalists, fulfilling his promise to appoint judges who will protect and honor the Constitution and the rule of law.

Mark Kelly is a hand-picked soldier in the hard left cabal intent on flipping the senate and restricting American’s Second Amendment rights.

Kelly, along with wife Giffords, operates the major gun control groups* Giffords PAC which between its hybrid PAC and 501(c)(4) nonprofit Giffords, spent nearly $7 million to aid Democrat congressional candidates in 2018. Watch for those restrictive efforts to intensify.

Lunacy: A viral contagion afflicting Michigan Dems

April 26, 2020

Most of us associate Michigan with being the center of the U.S. automotive industry and the home of Motown recording, surrounded by Great Lakes. Crazy politicians are not on our radar, but should be. The state with the one of the highest Coronavirus rates in the nation, is led by megalomaniacal Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Her odd style of governance includes cordoning off areas of big box stores in order to prohibit purchases of starter plants or seeds to begin a home vegetable garden, at a time when that would be a rational, self-sufficient idea. The Dem Grande Dame is not messing around. The penalty for doing so includes a $1000 fine and up to 90 days in jail. Whitmer, a first-term governor, whose undergrad degree is in communications, abysmally fails in that arena. She is also a lawyer, though obviously not a fan of the U.S. Constitution.

Whitmer also issued a ban on the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), which has proven effective when administered to some Coronavirus patients. For good measure, she threatened the licenses of physicians who prescribed or pharmacists who dispensed the drug for treatment or prevention. A look at her shiny, inflexible and mask-like face in the photo accompanying this American Spectator article makes it a sure bet she’s not banning Botox.

Other preposterous actions emanating from Michigan include the plans of a Detroit branch of the Michigan Democrat Party to censure freshman Democrat state representative Karen Whitsett, as reported by The Detroit News. She met with President Trump earlier this month and praised him for advocating on behalf of the anti-viral drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for Coronavirus.

Rep. Whitsett contracted the virus in March and has since recovered. The lawmaker credited hydroxychloroquine with saving her life. The medication, in use for other aliments for decades, as noted by Mayo Clinic, has received recognition by many U.S. medical officials and President Trump as a possible therapeutic for the often fatal Coronavirus. Her fellow Dems would rather see Rep. Whitsett dead than respond to the medication and thank Republican President Trump for making it available.

Democrats are no longer simply members of the “other party.” They are bonafide lunatics.


Virus closes Mexican hospital near AZ border

April 25, 2020

News you won’t read in open border supporting AZ newspaper

Judicial Watch’s Corruption Chronicles sounds the alarm on the increasing number of Coronavirus cases (also known as COVID-19) at the Mexico border where the city of Sonora abuts San Luis, Arizona.

The situation is so serious that an overburdened Mexican hospital, unable to care for the rising number of patients, has shut down.

Judicial Watch’s report states, “Under COVID-19 protocols Mexican nationals are not allowed to go back and forth via land crossings for non-essential travel, but those with legal U.S. residency (green cards) and citizens cannot be stopped.”

This is critically important information since it directly relates to the deadly disease — currently infecting residents and more than 30 doctors and nurses who were employed in the now shuttered hospital. One nurse has died.

With traffic virtually unimpeded, despite State Department Global Level 4  Do Not Travel restrictions, the disease continues making its way across our border — placing Arizonans at increased risk.

Texas is facing a similarly dire situation. In the city of El Paso, across the border from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, 9 Customs and Border Protection officers have tested positive for Coronavirus and though traffic in that sector is reportedly lighter than in Arizona, officials say there should be no cross border traffic at all. This week Mexican officials reported 140 Coronavirus cases in Ciudad Juarez and 33 deaths.

Death: A topic the dying AZ Republic can relate to

April 23, 2020

The Hillary-endorsing, open borders proponents at The Arizona Republic write about a topic with which they are well acquainted: Death.

A lengthy Page One and jump page report on preparing wills was supposedly spurred by the Wuhan Coronavirus deaths impacting our state. We think it’s more likely in response to taking a hard look in the mirror. This is the final paragraph following the report:

This article was prepared by students in an Investigating Reporting course at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Arizona State University.

The newspaper that has increasingly axed longtime employees, was forced to move out of it’s facilities and was finally sold, as it suffers from lack of readership brought on by years of insulting its readers, has found a solution to its dire economic woes. The students work for free.

Another cost saving ploy put to use is running “The Best Of” columns of a columnist who died in 2018. He, too, works without demanding a paycheck.

Then there is this death tale titled, “How repatriation of loved ones to Mexico works in a pandemic.”  It details how 131 illegal aliens, erroneously referred to as “undocumented immigrants,” who have died in Arizona are “repatriated” back to Mexico in coffins. Whether in life or death, America generates no special feeling of pride, as previous generations of actual legal immigrants felt when they were processed at Ellis Island and were thrilled to become Americans. The illegals come here to exploit our generous benefits system and take jobs displacing citizens as they undercut salaries. They also repatriate American dollars back to their relatives through a system known as remittances. According to data complied by the World Bank and reported by Pew Research Center nearly $150 Billion left our economy in 2017. The report notes this only includes money that left through “formal channels.”

When waves of European immigrants arrived on our shores at the turn of the last century, they made no demands, gratefully took America’s history as their own, and cherished the opportunities they found. When they died, they were buried in graves on American soil, because this was their chosen home.
