Two GOP U.S. Senators cave to anarchists

July 2, 2020

As rioting and violent mobs, abysmally ignorant of history, assault police officers, pillage and topple historic monuments — U.S. Presidents, Union Army Generals and Christopher Columbus among them — two U.S. Senators are caving to the agents of chaos.

Republican Sens. Ron Johnson (WI) and James Lankford (OK) now agree with the mob that intrepid Italian explorer Christopher Columbus is no longer worthy of a holiday commemorating his ships’ arrival in the Americas in 1492. When Columbus set off across the Atlantic, the prevailing thought was that the world was flat.

President Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, designated Columbus Day a national holiday in 1934. The first Columbus Day celebration took place in 1792, when the Columbian Order in New York City held a ceremony on the voyage’s 300th anniversary.

The senate duo of Johnson and Lankford has added an amendment eliminating the Columbus Day celebration to a bill declaring Juneteenth, memorializing the end of slavery, a new federal holiday. 

Characterizing the purging of the Columbus Day holiday as fiscally responsible, by not having two paid holidays, is less than truthful. This is all about votes as Johnson and Lankford look ahead to their next elections. They foolishly fail to comprehend that the mob is not their constituency.


Devious Zuckerberg links “hate speech,” false voter suppression claims

June 29, 2020

First Amendment free speech protections under attack

Banning hate speech, whether real or imagined, is morphing onto a mighty venture. To no one’s surprise the Democrat desire for universal mail-in ballots — opposition to which they call “voter suppression” — has found its way into the mix.

Coca-Cola, Dockers, Hershey’s and Levi’s announced on Friday they will be “pausing” or cut advertising budgets on all social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram globally. This is the updating list of advertisers who have jumped on-board the far-left #StopHateForProfit.

And wouldn’t you know? The impetus for the campaign was the death of the now martyred, career criminal George Floyd. In his name, businesses have been looted and torched, police have had cinder blocks thrown at their heads, their vehicles set on fire, their departments defunded, historic national monuments have been ripped down, and city blocks have been taken over by anarchists as chaos reigns.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg now disingenuously claims that under its new policies, “Facebook will ban ads that claim people from a specific race, ethnicity, nationality, caste, gender, sexual orientation or immigration origin are a threat to the physical safety or health of anyone else.” He’s been mysteriously silent as hordes of vandals have run amok.

GOP politicians and conservatives have flocked to the social media app Parler, founded in 2018, protesting Twitter’s  biased censorship and unwarranted suppression of Pres. Trump‘s messaging. Zuckerberg went on record with this quote:

“I am committed to making sure Facebook remains a place where people can use their voice to discuss important issues. But I also stand against hate or anything that incites violence or suppresses voting, and we’re committed to removing that content too, no matter where it comes from.”

“Suppresses voting?” Count on devious Zuckerberg to pull out the reliable leftist canard as he routinely suppresses content he defines as hateful. At 36, he has amassed an estimated $88 billion and is willing to spend it. Be assured, it won’t be for candidates or causes conservatives support.


Not only have we met the enemy, we diapered them

June 25, 2020

As home grown anarchists seize American cities, plunder and venomously destroy what preceding generations have created, we are left to wonder what went so wrong in the raising of our children. 

Obviously, indulging them has been a mistake. So, too, has been the public educational system that replaces history with global warming, eliminates basics and devalues excellence by giving non-offending participation awards — a practice that extends from academics through sports. The devaluing message is pure communism. No one is superior, all effort is equal. If, as in communist regimes, a doctor’s work is compensated at the same level as a truck driver, why expend the effort to spend at least a dozen years in college, medical school and residency? A driver’s license is far easier to attain.

Respect is another antiquated notion. Perpetual anger, based on nothing in this land of incomparable opportunity, is given release by smashing business windows, stealing merchandise and wantonly destroying what others have worked to achieve.  It is the mark of the perpetual Brat Generation. Throwing bricks at police officers has become as de rigueur as toppling statues erected to honor past presidents and patriots.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, a third of young people, or 24 million of those aged 18 to 34, lived under their parents’ roof in 2015. More young adults lived with parents than with a spouse in 2016. Almost 9 in 10 of those who lived with their parents a year ago are still there, failing to launch self-supporting lives. That’s more than double the number sponging off their Medicare recipient parents in 1980. Not having a job to go to enables 24-hour street protests.

The United States of America, that has offered these spoiled ingrates more than they deserve, is now held in contempt. So devoid are they of knowledge, they vandalize memorials erected to those who founded this nation or worked to ensure freedom for all, since they are intellectually vapid.

Worse, there are no consequences for their actions, so they continue to destroy and loot. In cities with Democrats in control, police are being defunded and jailed while criminals are martyred. Lives have been needlessly lost as 911 calls no longer guarantee an ambulance or police response in areas where the mob is in control.

For years we were inundated by the leftist media with falsehoods about Russia and or China influencing the 2016 election. It’s a certainty Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping are watching the destruction of America by Americans, hoisting a glass and chortling.


Best wishes for a Happy Father’s Day

Fathers take our hands and give us their hearts

With affection and appreciation to all of the Fathers, Dads, Papas and Grandpas who have guided us along the way.

 

As we take the day off to celebrate Father’s Day, we’re gifting our readers with an illuminating column, “BLM at War with America,” by self-described “Unhyphenated American.” Lloyd Marcus. It’s pertinent to these turbulent times.

Comments are turned off since we are unable to monitor them.


Haven’t we been down this Phoenix street before?

June 20, 2020

Destruction and renaming: Hallmarks of the left

America’s historic monuments are being toppled by the suddenly aggrieved. The calculatingly offended not only find Civil War memorials offensive, but also 1492 New World explorer Christopher Columbus and America’s first president, George Washington.

Washington was recently vandalized and brought down in Portland, Oregon along with a burning American flag and spray painted words “genocidal colonist.” The latest manipulative neutering is that certain street names, now considered offensive, have to go.

Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, a Democrat, profits from those she refers to as “the community,” being in a froth. If they don’t know they’re offended, she’ll gladly inform them. Ginning up perpetual aggrievement is the latest trend in garnering votes, as incongruously wearing victimization in the land of the free has replaced pride in citizenship.

The latest gambit is to replace the names of Squaw Peak Drive and Robert E. Lee Street. Thanks to a policy change rammed through in 2017 by then-Mayor, now Congressman Greg Stanton (CD-9). The Democrat  did so despite objections of property owners, who preferred the historic name and opposed being forced to update the address listed on their driver’s licenses, legal documents, passports, bank accounts, connected to all credit cards and bills, including mortgages and utilities.

Stanton was following in the footsteps of then-Gov. Janet Napolitano, another Democrat, who in 2008 forced through the renaming of landmark Squaw Peak, a popular mid-Phoenix mountain known for its hiking trails. Bypassing the normal process she ramrodded the name Piestewa Peak, commemorating Lori Piestewa the as the first American Indian woman to die in combat in 2003 while serving in the armed forces in Iraq. Her actual heritage was half Hopi and half Mexican, which is stifled as less compelling.

Democrats are on a mission to effect change regardless of the merit or consequences. Disgracefully lacking in knowledge of American history it wouldn’t be surprising if the next monument they demolish is President Andrew Jackson, a Southerner who instituted policies that resulted in the forced migration of Native Americans. He also founded the Democrat Party.


SCOTUS hurls more havoc at besieged USA

June 19, 2020

Transgenderism given cover of normalcy, illegals magically legalized

This week, the U.S. Supreme Court many of us were proclaiming as turning a corner with two Trump appointees, veered off, instead, into unbridled legal hinterlands.

While Americans are staggering in the wake of a deadly pandemic and cities under siege as marauding bands of thugs use the deaths of now martyred criminals to loot, plunder, demand defunding of police and tear down historic monuments, we are told by the Supremes that we must redefine sexuality.

It’s a load worthy of mythical Atlas, who bore the sky aloft. But instead of a Greek titan of legend, it will be us and future generations who will have to hoist this absurdity.

Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz does as fine a job as we’ve seen explaining what was just thrown at us in this 6-3 opinion in which Justice Neil Gorsuch turned John Robertsish and voted with the court’s liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan, caving to the ACLU legal team. Pres. Trump’s other Supreme Court appointee, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, joined Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas in dissenting.

Read Horowitz’ “SCOTUS decision redefining sexuality will wreak havoc on society.”

Want even more? Horowitz also provides this earlier overview: “Conservatives get massacred by fake ‘conservative’ SCOTUS.”

Legal scholar Mark Levin weighed in on the Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of Univ. of California case, in which the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that DHS’ rescission of DACA was “arbitrary and capricious.” Justices Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, were in the minority as Chief Justice Roberts once again joined with the liberals.

Levin asserted “this week the Supreme Court did more damage to the rule of law and the Constitution than the rioters in the streets.”

Chief Justice John Roberts shiftily contended that “the dispute before the Court is not whether DHS may rescind DACA. All parties agree that it may. The dispute is instead primarily about the procedure the agency followed in doing so.”

DACA is the facile acronym for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a program thrust upon us as an executive action by Barack Obama in 2012. DACA worked hand-in-hand with another scam known as the D.R.E.A.M. Act. The acronym stood for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors. It was introduced as S.1291. The 2002 bill was drafted before the speech police ruled the words “illegal” and “alien” unacceptable, so they were used extensively throughout the bill.

Justice Clarence Thomas’ opinion asserted that the majority decision “must be recognized for what it is: an effort to avoid a politically controversial but legally correct decision.

Renown former Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes is quoted as saying, “The longing for certainty is in every human mind. But certainty is generally illusion.”


Radical AZ Republic promotes obliterating history

June 17, 2020

Always on a mission to change America, the radicals in charge at the gasping-its-last breaths, Hillary endorsing Arizona Republic, aren’t content with indulging the reprehensible riots, looting, arson and missions to defund the police. The latest gem pulled from its seemingly never ending negative view of America, is a push to remove historical monuments.

History is exactly that. It catalogues what came before the present, blemishes as well as spectacular events. History was never meant to be a facade of the optimum, but a catalogue of what brought us to the present. In America, that’s a beacon of hope so magnificent that people give up all they have in their homes of origin to start anew in a land of freedom. We have always welcomed those who legally access our generous immigration process. The newspaper is a strident advocate for the lawless who breech our southern border and later crowd our legal system, as their lawlessness continues following their illegal entry.

Now it has a new tactic to upend America. On the front page is an editorial passing as a news report, headlined, “Calls growing to remove confederate monument,” citing “community leaders,” attempting to pressure Gov. Doug Ducey to remove a plaque. Those who still read the bile-spewing newspaper know that’s code-speak for whichever minority community or Democrat carries the specific message of the moment. It reliably turns to the vicious purveyors of hate at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to bolster its arguments.

Joy Pullmann, writing for the Federalist does a first-rate job of exposing the contemptible tactics used by the SPLC, in5 Reasons The Southern Poverty Law Center Is A Hate-Mongering Scam.” Due to its importance, it is our major link today.  Please read it.

History provides context for today and tomorrow. Obliterating it is identical to the job Winston Smith had in George Orwell’s prophetic best selling book “1984” published in 1949:

Smith was employed as a clerk in the government’s Ministry of Truth Records Department. His job was to rewrite historical documents to align with the constantly changing current political deception. Newspeak, a reduced language became the tool to limit free thought and concepts posing a threat to the totalitarian regime.  Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct was classified as “thought crime,” “crime think,” or “doublethink.”

Smith’s work included manipulating facts, revising newspaper articles and doctoring photographs to remove “unpersons,” the term used to describe people who had fallen out of favor with the party.

Though we conservatives are “unpersons” to the media extremists, our voice remains strong. It’s imperative we continue to use it.


Monumental fail as monuments fall

June 13, 2020

Obliterating our past falsely sanitizes our present and makes a mockery of our future

Paraphrasing President John Adams, history is a stubborn thing. It is what it is, a revealing reflection of all aspects of the past — a teacher like no other.

Students of history know that though societal mores change over time, they remain the foundation of what we strive for as an improved present. Tearing down statues is the reprehensible equivalent of Nazi book burning. Renaming military bases, the latest obsession of the left, is insanity based in ignorance. There is even a movement to alter the full name of northeastern Rhode Island, which few outside of the nation’s smallest state, founded in 1636, have ever heard and has nothing to do with slavery.

The anti-white hatred, fueled by the needless death of a man with a lengthy criminal history, has even found a foothold in England, where radical protesters, deceptively described in the press as “far-right” are attempting to remove statues including that of WWII heroic Prime Minister Winston Churchill. It has previously been defaced with the word, “racist,”by the historically ignorant. Current Prime Minister Boris Johnson correctly called it “absurd and shameful” that the monuments were at risk.

Do yourself a favor and readThe Monumental Campaign to #CancelAmerica,by conservative author and commentator Michelle Malkin. Her words represent reason in a sea of cultural absurdity and are definitely worth your time.


Exposing the farce of “systematic racism”

June 10, 2020

This fact-filled article, “Mass Police Brutality Isn’t the True Plight of Black Americans,” by Dr. Walter E. Williams, a black professor of economics at George Mason University, is guaranteed to make us smarter — though not a match for Dr. Williams, as you‘ll see when you read his extraordinary bio.

He notes the significant political power black Americans currently have at all levels of government. He also details the correlation between abysmal educational scores in Democrat-controlled cities — despite their large, and growing, school budgets. Williams zones in on the violent crime levels in cities run by Democrats, naming the cities.

Take a few minutes to acquaint yourself with the facts. You’ll be glad you did.


Pres. Trump vows to protect Americans, is blasted by left

June 2, 2020

“America is founded upon the rule of law. It is the foundation of our prosperity, our freedom, and our very way of life”

In this statement given from the White House Rose Garden Monday evening, President Trump addresses the coordinated riots and lawlessness that have overtaken American cities in recent days. Vowing to mobilize civilian and military resources to quell the criminality that has decimated countless cities, his words echo his dedication to this country and his plan of action to restore safety and civility to our nation that has been gripped by the Coronavirus pandemic and now by “coordinated professional anarchists, violent mobs, arsonists, looters, criminals, rioters, Antifa, and others.”

Following his remarks, Pres. Trump, joined by a few White House officials, walked to nearby historic St. John’s Episcopal Church, which rioters attempted to burn down the preceding night.  Even this calming action was met with blistering contempt by Democrats House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY). The pair issued a joint statement, reading in part, “the nation needs real leadership” during this challenging time, adding, “The President’s continued fanning of the flames of discord, bigotry and violence is cowardly, weak and dangerous.”

Rev. Mariann Budde, the far-left bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, D.C. claimed to be “outraged.” Budde, not a neutral player, assumed the leadership post at the church in 2011, and was quoted as saying: “I want to build up the liberal church again so we can be a legitimate conversation partner in the public arena.”  Last year she blasted what she called Trump’s “radicalized rhetoric.”

Try to imagine Pelosi, Schumer or Budde making these same irrational statements if Barack Obama was still in the White House and walked to a nearby church under identical circumstances. You can’t, since such a scenario would never have taken place.

The left has never gotten over his stunning 2016 victory, and are willing to destroy our nation to advance their agenda.
