Pervert dem megadonor Ed Buck guilty of 9 felonies

July 30, 2021

Conviction of far-left darling of the hypocritical Arizona Republic unworthy of mention on its pages

Earlier this week, a Los Angeles federal jury, deliberating only four hours following a two-week trial, convicted wealthy democrat donor Ed Buck on charges that he injected indigent gay men with methamphetamine in exchange for sex, leading to two deaths and other overdoses, in the mattress-lined living room what was described as his Hollywood “house of horrors.” Court documents portray Buck as a “violent, dangerous sexual predator, who uses the bait of drugs, money, and shelter to lure men struggling with addiction and homelessness into his home, where he manipulates them into participating in his sexual fetishes.”

Buck, 66, was found guilty of nine felony counts including providing and injecting the drugs that led to the overdose deaths of Gemmel Moore, 26, and Timothy Dean, 55. A sentencing date has not yet been announced.

Arizonans will remember Buck (a name he altered from Buckmelter), as detailed in this 2019 post titled. “Deviant Dem megadonor Ed Buck finally arrested after 3rd man overdoses & Update.” Buck’s nefarious anti-Republican career took root in Phoenix, where he received ongoing praise and celebratory status in the local newspaper for being the driving force to take down newly elected Gov. Evan Mecham prior to his January 5, 1987 inauguration to his contrived impeachment conviction on April 4, 1988. The far left Arizona Republic cheered on Buck’s efforts against the former state senator, decorated World War II fighter pilot and POW, and a successful businessman. Evan Mecham was a devoted husband, father of seven, and active in his church, but he was a political conservative making him deserving of the wrath of the radical local newspaper, which daily vomited its multi-pronged, anti-conservative, vicious spew on him.

Governor Mecham was Donald Trump decades before President Donald Trump appeared on the political horizon.

Ed Buck lavished campaign donations on prominent state and federal (be sure to read the entire lists). Democrat candidates — Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Adam Schiff, were among the recipients of Buck’s generosity. Congressman Schiff, who represented the district where Buck lived was known to visit his home.

Buck has given more than $500,000 to a wide array of democrat groups and candidates, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (who Biden just nominated as the U.S. Ambassador to India), Gov. Gavin Newsom (currently facing a recall election) and L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey — obviously attempting to curry favor with powerful office holders who could influence his fate. His scheme worked. While in office, Lacey twice refused to prosecute Buck.

The DCCC reportedly received at least $5,000 from Buck. AZ Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s PAC, Getting Stuff Done, (GSD-PAC) was a recipient of Buck’s generosity, separate from his donations to her campaign, which she ultimately returned.

Those on the long list of leftists who willingly accepted Buck’s generosity remain mute, as does the duplicitous Arizona Republic, which couldn’t praise him enough when he led the impeachment against conservative Republican Gov. Evan Mecham. Now Buck’s conviction is unworthy of mention.


Americans beware: Control is the new normal

July 29, 2021

This afternoon, shaky Joe Biden, masked and wearing sunglasses, made a spoon-fed announcement that all federal workers must be vaccinated against COVID-19 or be subject to strict Coronavirus testing requirements. The Department of Veterans Affairs announced Monday all of its health-care workers must be vaccinated.

Read Katie Pavlich’s excellent new report, “BREAKING: Biden Issues New Vaccine Mandates.”

Merrick Garland who heads the Department of Justice as U.S. Attorney General says government agencies and companies CAN force employees to get COVID vaccines as California and NYC lead the way with mandates. Garland rivals Ramsey Clark for the title of most radical leftist to hold that office in modern history.

Remember when Barack Obama nominated this tyrannical activist to the U.S. Supreme Court in the waning days of his administration?  Republican senators back-burnered the nomination, while Arizona single-term Senator Jeff Flake, Obama’s basketball and traveling buddy, was shepherding Garland around the senate desperately trying to gin up votes for him.

Earlier this week, the San Francisco Bar Alliance urged its nearly 500 member bars ask customers to prove they’ve been vaccinated or provide results of a negative COVID-19 test from the past three days. They were not so authoritarian when the deadly scourge of AIDs was infecting large segments of the San Francisco homosexual community, since that would have been politically incorrect.


Biden’s farcical double standard on immigration

July 18, 2021

Comparing Biden to Paul Revere: Biden comes up short

The tower of Boston’s Old North Church is immortalized for being where Paul Revere’s “One if by land, two if by sea” lantern signal was sent. The phrase is related to Revere’s midnight ride of April 18, 1775, alerting the colonists, preceding the Battles of Lexington and Concord during the American Revolutionary War. When American history was still taught, we learned these facts.

Things have changed dramatically in the intervening years. Today the leftist educrat members of the teacher’s unions are committed not to our history, but rather to instilling divisiveness — dedicated as they are to indoctrinating Critical Race Theory, where one group of Americans are victims and the other are victimizers, based solely on genetic characteristics over which we have no control.

The Biden administration is energized at the prospect of separating us and laying blame.  It’s their red meat. But there is now what at first blush appears to be an impossible to understand component.

Though the dismantling of the wall on our southern border has been prioritized by the democrats who welcome all comers breaching our southern border* from Central America and Mexico, there is a decidedly different approach to Cubans living under communism 90 miles south of Florida. This past week, they have been marching for freedom from the repressive regime that turned the once popular destination country to a dictatorship run by Fidel Castro and his brother Raul for more than six decades. Communist Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel Bermudez is currently in charge.

Alejandro Mayorkas, Biden’s Secretary of Homeland Security, is another slippery Obama administration cohort now reshuffled over to Biden. He helped implement the DACA program and will be responsible for strengthening it, along with other Biden immigration programs. He also has a short memory. Mayorkas’ own family fled Cuba in 1960 after Fidel Castro’s communist takeover of the country. This was his tweet on the topic.

Mayorkas is not all that concerned about our nation’s security as he welcomes uneducated, unvaccinated and often known criminal invaders from Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.  However, his and Biden’s message to Cubans hungering for freedom among increasing domestic turmoil along with food and medical shortages is, “Let me be clear. If you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States.”

Why the different treatment? There’s no mystery involved. Cubans are reliably Republicans. Mexicans and Central Americans most often walk lock-step with the democrats.

Jeff Flake: Biden picks turkey as ambassador to Turkey

July 15, 2021

Appointment is reward for Flake’s support of Biden’s presidential campaign

In what is surely one of the most appropriate appointments to come out of the Harris/Biden administration Arizonan Jeff Flake has been nominated as ambassador to Turkey. Cindy McCain, who also campaigned for the democrat ticket, was similarly rewarded with an ambassadorship.

Flake, a former congressman and single term U.S. Senator, perfected his role as show-boater extraordinaire, colluding with democrats, though elected as a Republican. He posted photos of himself writing checks to democrat candidates, and was avidly anti-Trump,* to the point that his relatives who make up a majority of the conservative LDS town of Snowflake, AZ named in part for his great-great-grandfather, refused to support his candidacy according to a report in the local newspaper. Flake, who was born and raised in Snowflake, opportunistically moved to Mesa to launch his single issue, opposition to “earmarks,” congressional campaign.

Flake’s unprecedentedly low 18 percent approval ratings in his home state, convinced him not to seek a second senate term. Not only was Flake John McCain’s protégé, he was also Barack Obama’s weekly basketball teammate and traveling buddy, accompanying Obama and the democrat black caucus on a junket to Kenya.

A man of unparalleled deception, Flake’s pre-political past, which he tried to obscure, included working as a registered foreign agent lobbying on behalf of Iranian uranium mining interests in Africa. There was no room for this disclosure or his open border positions on Flake’s resume.

Biden, dems, impose fed. power over local zoning laws

June 29, 2021

Comply or lose gov’t funding…our own money…as voter demographics are altered

Many Americans choose to live in the suburbs and endure the longer drive to the city center where their jobs are often located. It’s a trade-off they opt to make. They want the openness of suburbia, a yard, maybe a pool; a place where their kids can walk safely to a neighborhood school, and a nearby park. Their grandparents, frequently immigrants or a generation or two away, often lived in big cities, dense with low-rent, high-rise apartments and tough neighborhoods.

Their educated and upwardly mobile descendants were able to use their earned resources to relocate. Being Americans gives us the freedom to decide where we live.  Or so we thought.

It turns out democrats have other plans in mind.

When President Donald Trump warned about the democrats’ plan to “abolish” suburbs by infusing low income, high density housing into established neighborhoods during a Phoenix rally, he was falsely accused of “race baiting.” National Review’s Stanley Kurtz wrote “Biden and Dems Are Set to Abolish the Suburbs,” verifying what many attendees remember.

Luke Rosiak writing for The Daily Wire has written an investigative report titled, “Stealth Goal Of Infrastructure Plan Could Be To Abolish The Suburbs By Bribing Towns To Change Zoning Laws,” that is sure to leave you wondering what’s going on.

The answer is power-hungry democrats now dominate Washington, D.C.

These reports are not something you should read. As a freedom loving citizen, they are something you must read. There is a method to what appears to be leftist madness. Infusions of democrats into GOP suburbs will unalterably change voting demographics. That’s plain to see with the democrat courting of illegal aliens.

The Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule, which Kurtz refers to as “radical,” was conceptualized during the Obama administration and carrying an effective date of July 31, 2021, requires local governments that receive federal funding to study racial bias in their housing patterns and develop plans to address it.

It’s a grotesque transmogrification of title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, 42 U.S.C. 3601-3619.

Get politically involved. Silence is acquiescence. Begin with your city council and state legislators. Time is short.


Biden admin.’s stunning hypocrisy on Mideast air strikes

June 28, 2021

Arizonans looking for facts regarding the Biden-ordered air strikes against Iran-backed militia in Iraq and Syria on Sunday evening will have to locate the information somewhere other than on the pages of the radically left-wing local newspaper which focuses on sports and diversity.

This Department of Defense statement notes the U.S. military targeted operational and weapons storage facilities at two locations in Syria and one location in Iraq.

The strikes came at the direction of Pres. Joe Biden‘s handlers, the second time his surrogates have ordered retaliatory strikes against Iran-backed militia since taking office five months ago. Biden last ordered strikes against a target in Syria in February, that time in response to rocket attacks in Iraq.

Military action is often necessary to secure our troops and aid our allies. It’s the predictable hypocrisy that warrants scrutiny.

The U.K.’s Daily Mail provides this exposé, reporting that the views were decidedly different when President Trump authorized military action.

Four years ago, Biden’s mouthpiece Jen Psaki — formerly Obama’s Communications Director — tweeted her dismay at Trump-sanctioned air strikes on the very same country which her boss approved a bombing raid last night.

“What is the legal authority for strikes? Assad is a brutal dictator. But Syria is a sovereign country,” Psaki wrote in April, 2017.

In June 2019, Biden referred to President Trump as “erratic” and “impulsive” for taking the same actions his administration is now taking.

L.A. D.A. George Gascon protects criminals, disregards law abiding citizens

June 5, 2021

Arrogant extremist was previously Mesa, AZ Police Chief

The name of Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon is one that should be all too familiar to Valley residents. He was the unpopular, political extremist Mesa Police Chief, prior to moving to San Francisco to become the District Attorney. As political scheming goes, the move was a classic fit as Gascon replaced hard-core leftist* Kamala Harris who was running for California Attorney General. Under the guidance of her acknowledged longtime “mentor” then-San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, she improbably burst onto the national scene as California’s junior U.S. Senator. Harris is now Vice President, waiting for bumbling, stumbling, and frequently incoherent Joe Biden to fall again, integral to Barack Obama’s long-range behind the curtain scheme.

Cuban-born Gascon, whose uncle was imprisoned under the Communist regime of Fidel Castro, is unique among law enforcement professionals and given his background definitely should know better. He is more attuned to keeping criminals happy than keeping law abiding citizens safe.

Although gang violence In Los Angeles County continues to spiral out of control with  murders up 136.4%, shootings up 261.5%, and attacks on police officers up 300%, District Attorney Gascon defended the indefensible Assembly Bill No. 3234, which lessens the penalties for a wide range of crimes. It was signed into law September 2020 by Gov. Gavin Newsom. No surprise…both Gascon and Newsom are far-left democrats.

Californians are wising up.

The campaign to recall Gov. Newsom has 2,026,617 verified signatures, far exceeding the number needed to generate a special election to remove him from office. The Office of the California Secretary of State provides the complete list.

For more background, take time to read, “Amiable bedfellows: Kamala Harris, George Gascon…George Soros.”

Knowledge is power.

* Govtrack graph placed Kamala Harris “far left” compared to other senate democrats.


Biden berates AZ democrat Sen. Sinema

June 2, 2021

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) is also the object of Biden’s ridicule

Joe Biden is not happy and is blaming Arizona democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema for his angst. She shares the blame with West Virginia democrat Joe Manchin. While Biden didn’t specifically name them, it was clear the duo is on the receiving end of his ire as he insinuated they align themselves more with Republicans than their own party.

“I hear all the folks on TV saying, ‘Why doesn’t Biden get this done?’” he asked, narcissistically referring to himself by his own last name. “Well, because Biden only has a majority of effectively four votes in the House and a tie in the Senate, with two members of the Senate who vote more with my Republican friends.”

Biden appeared to be alluding to the democrat election rigging scheme known as H.R.1 consisting of nearly 900 pages, that would, among other things, expand mail-in and early voting and require automatic voter registration, while restricting rights.

First, let’s cut to the chase. Compliant Biden doesn’t have Republican friends. He obediently takes his marching orders from Barack Obama, who recently admitted that the Biden administration was a continuation of his own, as reported in the Washington Examiner.

Arizonans don’t mistake Sinema for a conservative, despite the fact that she has steadfastly rejected leftwing calls to end the Senate filibuster.

“When you have a place that’s broken and not working, and many would say that’s the Senate today, I don’t think the solution is to erode the rules,” Sinema said. “I think the solution is for senators to change their behavior and begin to work together, which is what the country wants us to do.”

That’s a fact.

Arizona does have a precedent for a party switching member of Congress. Democrat Bob Stump served four terms in the Arizona House of Representatives from 1959 to 1967, followed by five terms in the Arizona State Senate from 1967 to 1976, where he was President of the Senate. He was first elected to congress in 1976 as a democrat. After voting for Pres. Reagan’s tax cuts in in 1981, he announced his party switch to Republican. U.S. Rep. Stump remained popular, and continued to win by wide margins, until his retirement in 2000.


Climate change, Green New Deal, come to your dinner plate

April 28, 2021

In a statement that “the conversation about sustainable cooking clearly needs to be louder,” digital food magazine Epicurious announced it will no longer publish recipes featuring beef in what it says is an effort to help home cooks become more environmentally friendly.

A couple of years ago Associated Press even weighed in on the anti-environmental effects of cow farts, which they concluded were not as problematic as bovine belches. At the time, with tongue only marginally in cheek, they wrote, “In the climate change debate, some policymakers seem to be bovine flatulence deniers.”

It should come as no surprise to find that since 2015, during the Obama administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture was partnering with Microsoft to launch the “Innovation Challenge,” a competition to develop software applications contrived to “assist” farmers, agriculture businesses, and consumers explore how climate change will affect their food systems.

Now with Barack Obama out of sight, though actively involved in directing the Biden-Harris administration, stay alert to see how the Wagyu beef eater will attempt to control not only every aspect of the U.S. government, but how and what meat Americans are able to purchase and prepare for their families and friends. In 2009, Michelle Malkin covered the Obama’s high-end tastes and their predilection for serving Wagyu at White House soirees. The average price in 2021 is $250 per pound.

Enjoy your veggie burgers, eggplant and Brussels Sprouts. No cheating. “Big Brother* is watching.

*The term comes from George Orwell’s eerily prophetic novel, “1984,” and refers to the government’s surveillance of people with listening devices and cameras, in a totalitarian society, where Big Brother is the head of the regime. Everyone in this society is under surveillance by the authorities, which continually reminds the citizens with the endless catchphrase “Big Brother is watching You.” Orwell wrote his book in 1949.


Joe Biden’s bait and switch presidency

April 24, 2021

Although a late find, it was entirely appropriate this commentary was published on April 1st — April Fools’ Day. We disagree with Charles Lipson’s description of former President Donald Trump, but the rest of his analysis is spot on. Americans who voted for barely cognizant, Obama-puppet Joe Biden got exactly what they deserved. The rest of us didn’t.

We urge you to read “Biden’s Bait-and-Switch Presidency,” originally posted on Real Clear Politics. Since this was written, matters have worsened. Leftist rioters have once again taken to the streets, creating havoc. Police are reviled and  have morphed into the enemy, as radical mayors and councils have appallingly called for them to be ’defunded’ and their forces dismantled. ‘Secure America Now’ has a list of the 11 major cities marching in lockstep off the cliff and into the abyss of criminality. This was the Phoenix mob demanding defunding, as covered by the local newspaper, including a gallery of 40 photos.

Despite our southern border being beyond crisis mode, the administration’s spokes-mouth Jen Psaki refuses to make any such admission. VP Kamala Harris, charged with overseeing the disaster, has yet to venture south though GOP members of congress and reporters have made it a priority. Taxes, which were reined in by President Trump, have surged due to astronomical and unsustainable spending by obliging marionette Biden. He has bowed to the radical Climate Change/Green New Deal agenda currently bearing the preposterous price tag of $93 Trillion, dramatically impacting U.S. households — while requiring no concessions from major global polluters China, India and Russia (which top the list). Biden pledged to cut the US’s greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030, doubling the US’s goals under the Paris Climate Accord. It was a cinch for him to make that commitment, since closing in on octogenarian status and weakened with declining cognitive acuity, in addition to having suffered recent falls, he will be long gone by then and will not have to answer for the destruction of America he and his partisans are attempting to ensure.

The term “systemic racism,” which has become the holy grail of the left, is debunked by the fact that Americans elected and reelected Barack Obama as U.S. President. Kamala Harris is now Vice President, likely to be in the Oval Office before frail Biden‘s term has officially concluded. Minorities are a presence in every aspect of American life, from medicine, government, law, education and science to policing. PragerU features Larry Elder, Carol Swain, Candace Owens and others bringing clarity to the topic. Each brief but enlightening segment is worth your time.
