Memorial Day 2023: Honoring America’s fallen heroes

May 29, 2023

“No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.”

– President Calvin Coolidge, August 2, 1923 – March 4, 1929

Graves of America’s military heroes can be accessed through Veterans Legacy Memorial website.

Memorial Day became a federal holiday in 1971, during the presidency of Richard Nixon, who rose to the rank of Commander in the U.S. Navy.


Dem. Sen. Warren has Berkeley prof challenger for Pocahontas award

May 6, 2023

The New York Post reports an anthropology professor at the University of California, Berkeley, whose identity as Native American had been questioned for years posted this letter of apology for falsely identifying as Indigenous, saying she is “a white person” who lived an identity based on family lore.

She ought to run for the U.S. Senate. This identical charade worked for Massachusetts democrat Elizabeth Warren. She was momentarily embarrassed when her flagrant hoax that underwrote her teaching and legal career was exposed, but dug in her heels and remains in the senate.

Biden admin increases illegal surge, as education takes a deep dive

May 4, 2023

Today we take our readers directly to a recent FOX News report, headlined,  “WATCH: Karine Jean-Pierre gets agitated when pressed on her claim illegal immigration down 90% under Biden.” It was followed by this bold-face sub-headline, “Fiscal year 2022 ended with 2,378,944 migrant encounters, highest ever recorded.”

Dems believe Americans are fools, don’t pay attention to facts and are easily duped. Illegal immigration to the U.S., the extent of which cannot be fully known due to the millions who boldly evade federal Border Patrol agents, rose at a faster rate in the first nine months of Joe Biden’s tenure than any time in the Border Patrol’s 97-year history.

Yahoo News reports, “The large majority of the Border Patrol’s encounters took place at the Mexican border. Over the past decade, between 30,000 to 50,000 people have been encountered illegally crossing the southern border each month. That number dropped to below 20,000 at the start of the pandemic, primarily as the result of a Trump administration order that any child, adult, or family who illegally crossed would be sent back to their home country rather than taken into custody.”

That rationale is not part of the dem mindset, which views illegals as future democrat voters. It is inconsequential that we are losing our country to the invaders.

This recently released National Review report, “American Students Fail in Civics and History Testing,” should be of major concern to every American. How can future generations feel a compulsion to honor and protect a nation they know nothing about? Liberals are destroying our education system, which will, in turn leave our nation in shambles.

Teacher’s unions influence in democrat politics is broad and well financed. The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) has 1.7 million dues paying members, and the National Education Association (NEA) has more than 3 million paying members. That’s well over half of Biden’s popular vote margin of victory over former President Trump — a hefty chunk of the electorate. According to the NEA, one out of every 39 voters lives in a household with at least one NEA member.

Open Secrets displays the hefty amount of money spent in 2023 on teacher’s unions by educrat lobbyists. What do they get in return for the cash payouts? It won’t just be a shiny red apple.

Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers, is a labor leader with a law degree, and member of the AFL–CIO. She is the former president of the United Federation of Teachers. And, of course, she is fashionably married to another woman.

Protecting Parents’ Rights with the ‘Given Name Act’

February 15, 2023

Radical gender ideology hidden from parents as schools encourage students to experiment with “transgenderism”

The Heritage Foundation has a newly issued Fact Sheet that should be mandatory reading for every parent, guardian and engaged grandparent of a K-12 age student. Changing names and pronouns is the first step in the implementation of radical gender ideology, which eventually leads to life-altering drugs and irreversible medical procedures. Without substantiation from a well-respected organization such as Heritage, this topic would be impossible to fathom. Read the brief ‘Given Name Act.’

The National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) shows reading and math test scores are significantly below the norm but manipulating pronouns takes center stage.

Biden buys-in to giving away our country

January 12, 2023

Following Joe Biden’s recent announcement that the U.S. will accept 30,000 people a month from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, there has been mayhem in those countries as their citizens have rushed to apply for paperwork to make their way to the USA. That’s 360,000 in a single year — rivaling the 2023 population of Cleveland, Ohio.

This preposterous scheme, a massive expansion of what is cunningly referred to as “humanitarian parole” gives democrats a perpetual election advantage as those ostensibly arriving on two-year work visas will overstay and then conveniently get lost in the vastness of the United States.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) announced the new parole plan amounts to “one of the most egregious and unlawful abuses of humanitarian parole authority in the history of our nation.”

Biden’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Cuban-born Alejandro Mayorkas, another hold-over from the Obama administration, was also a fixture in the Clinton administration, even partnering with Terry McAuliffe, chairman of the democrat party and Tony Rodham, Hillary Clinton’s brother as reported by Influence Watch. Take a couple of minutes to read the first two paragraphs. 

These are ominous times. If you value our U.S. Constitution and freedoms that flow from our Founding Documents, complacency is not an option.

T’was the night before Christmas….

December 24, 2022

Clement Clarke Moore’s original poem, “A Visit From Saint Nicholas,” was written in 1822 as a gift to his children. It was first published nearly 200 years ago in 1823 in the Troy Sentinel newspaper, in Troy, New York.

Clement Moore came from a traditionally religious family. His father, Benjamin Moore, was rector of Trinity Church in Manhattan. He later became bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York.

Read the poem here.

Enjoy Christmas Eve.

Biden’s holiday message includes gun confiscation

November 25, 2022

Most of us don’t shoot our Thanksgiving turkey, but we value the Second Amendment which gives us the ability to do so — including shooting for sport and most importantly, protect and defend ourselves and families in our own homes.

These 27 words of the Second Amendment carried such importance to our nation’s founders that they were enshrined in the U.S. Constitution immediately following the First Amendment, guaranteeing the freedom of speech and assembly.

“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”           

Joe Biden has other ideas. The Hill headlines its recent report, Biden says he will try to move on gun control during lame-duck session,” proving the left never forgets its main objective is disarming American citizens, regardless of our constitutional protections. In his pre-Thanksgiving message, Biden inserted these words: “This year, I signed the most significant gun reform in a generation, but that is not nearly enough. We must take greater action.”

The NRA-ILA (National Rifle Association/Institute of Legislative Action) remains committed to protecting our fundamental Second Amendment rights. They need our help. Join the NRA, which is our effective voice in Washington, DC and nationwide.

The First Thanksgiving by Jennie Augusta Brownscombe

We take time today to reflect on the many blessings we enjoy as citizens of this great nation, and wish the abundant bounties of this uniquely American holiday to each and every one of our readers.

Do yourself a favor and read this inspiring Thanksgiving Proclamation by Revolutionary hero and our first President, George Washington, as he humbly asks “Almighty God” to bless this fledgling nation and her people.

Distorting the language: Left’s absurd new “denier” trickery

November 10, 2022

Arizona ballot tabulation is a disgrace as numbers go unprocessed

The ‘Election Denier’ Smear Is The Dumbest Rhetorical Device In Modern Politics,” appearing on The Federalist, it was written prior to the November 8, 2022 General Election, but it couldn’t be more pertinent. Senior editor David Harsanyi has done a stellar job explaining the absurdity of the latest word to be twisted, garbled and then mainstreamed by the left.

Last evening the far-left PBS News Hour kept its ability to stun, as two inane female mouthpieces gave the word “denier” a workout, tossing it back and forth as the hot potato their producers obviously desire it to be, denigrating wary conservatives. Outside of exposing contemptible Holocaust deniers, the word is an anomaly, rarely used. It has recently been revitalized to denigrate Americans who question the validity of the 2020 presidential election.

We were elated to see “denier” used in a positive manner in this earlier headline, “Elon Musk Brings Election Denier Mark Finchem Back to Twitter.” Finchem appropriately responded. Former state legislator Finchem, a conservative candidate for Arizona Secretary of State is awaiting a final vote count, as Arizona’s Tuesday General Elections have been rife with snafus.


As of 9:15 am this morning, Secretary of State Katie Hobbs admits on her own website that there are 619,012 uncounted ballots statewide. Why?

It’s Election Day!  Vote Smart

November 8, 2022

The general election is today…Tuesday, Nov. 8. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

If you have not voted early by mail, Maricopa County Elections Department provides polling place locations.

Identification is required, as outlined on this page.

There are stark differences between Republicans and democrats. Joe Biden is sinking at breakneck speed. His most recent Real Clear Politics aggregated polling numbers on the question of the Direction of the Country are shockingly atrocious with only 23.9% saying the country is on the Right Track, compared to 68.3% saying we are on the Wrong Track. 

Vote Republican! It’s our only hope of restoring fiscal sanity and extracting ourselves from the Bidinflation nightmare.

Eight state executive offices — Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, Treasurer, Superintendent of Public Instruction, two seats on the Corporation Commission (Nick Myers and Kevin Thompson running as a team) and state Mine Inspector— are up for election, as well as a U.S. Senate seat, all of the state’s GOP U.S. House of Representatives seats Paul Gosar (CD 4) Andy Biggs, (CD 5), David Schweikert (CD 6) and Debbie Lesko (CD 8). Rachel Mitchell is the experienced choice for Maricopa County Attorney.
