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.

* UPDATE: Govtrack previously showed a graph that placed Kamala Harris “far left” compared to other senate democrats. Since her election as VP on the Biden ticket, that graph has been removed, although it pertained to her time in the U.S. Senate. Govtrack is obviously not nonpartisan.


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.


Biden: “enough prayers, it’s time for action” on guns

April 9, 2021

2nd Amendment rights need protection as never before

In early March, Merrick Garland was confirmed by the senate in a 70-30 vote as U.S. Attorney General, fulfilling the wish of Barack Obama, Joe Biden’s master puppeteer. On his way out of office Obama unsuccessfully tried to slip the former federal appellate judge onto the U.S. Supreme Court.

If all was as it should be, Garland’s new position should put him in an untenable predicament when it comes to handling a federal probe into Biden’s son, Hunter. Federal investigators have been examining multiple financial matters, including whether Hunter Biden violated tax and money laundering laws in foreign energy business dealings. CEFC China Energy, which has links to the Chinese Communist Party, paid Hunter at least $5 million in 2017, according to this Senate report. Along the way, Hunter, who has acknowledged a cocaine addiction, has also developed memory loss regarding compromising information and photos on his laptop that was dropped off at a repair shop. His multiple, and fanciful explanations during a recent CBS interview can be read on The Daily Signal.

Ah, but we digress.

Newly installed U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland has been described as a Second Amendment skeptic, a too soft term for a dedicated restrictionist. On March 15, the NRA-ILA (Institute for Legislative Action) headlined its report, “U.S. House Bows to Biden, Passes Legislation to Cancel Your RIGHT to Obtain a Firearm.”

This is not hyperbole.

Frail and barely cognizant Biden, clearly still under Obama’s direction, has been filling key positions with anti-Second Amendment extremists as detailed here by Jason Ouimet, NRA-ILA Executive Director.

On Thursday Biden, joined by Merrick Garland, announced numerous executive actions aimed at  further restricting gun rights and advocating for red flag laws as he admittedly bypasses congress. This overreach should concern every American regardless of party affiliation. (Notice many of his Biden’s embarrassing gaffes remain in the printed version.)

Biden also announced his selection of David Chipman to serve as the Director of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the agency responsible for enforcing gun laws. Chipman was previously aligned with Giffords PAC, a gun control group that specifically funneled $millions to democrat candidates, committed to carrying out its mission. Giffords is former Arizona U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, whose husband Mark Kelly is now a George Soros aligned U.S. Senator.

America’s strongest safeguard against these far-left overreaches into our Constitutional right to gun ownership is the NRA. If you’re not already a member, join now. It’s never been more important. Our future depends on full dedication to the amendment our Founders put immediately after the first, which guarantees freedom of speech, and the right to peaceably  assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.  


Biden’s promised “transparency” evaporates

March 28, 2021

Within hours of Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration, his recycled Obama administration spokeswoman, Jen Psaki vowed “to bring truth and transparency” back to the White House…deceptively insinuating such elements had vanished under President Trump. She also declared her “deep respect for the role of a free and independent press in our democracy.”

That respect for the press must be the reason for excluding Fox News reporter Peter Doocy from being called on during Biden’s first press conference, 65 days into his administration.

Among the first casualties of the promised transparency is the Homeland Security Advisory Council, which Department of Homeland Security (DHS) secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said he would “reconstitute” in the next few weeks as he switches to a new model for the committee…likely one less transparent. Cuban-born Mayorkas, another recycled Obama-era insider, was a key player of Obama’s presidential transition team and the director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, implementing the controversial DACA program.

Mayorkas, in this letter sent Friday and obtained by Politico, high-handedly informed the committee that he is ending the terms of the 32 current members.

For all of the Biden administration’s blather about openness and transparency a far more illustrative image is its refusal to allow news cameras inside U.S. Customs and Border Protection facilities to see the massive influx of illegal invaders, many of whom are unaccompanied minors. That claim of transparency also evaporated.

On day one, during a virtual White House ceremony to swear in nearly 1,000 federal appointees and staff who do not require senate confirmation, feeble Biden donned his tough guy demeanor as he emphasized public service and respect, warning:

“If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treating another colleague with disrespect, talking down to someone, I will fire you on the spot,” he threatened the staff.

The same admonition obviously doesn’t apply when DHS Secretary Mayorkas indiscriminately fires 32 experienced members of the advisory council.


Frail Biden officially abdicates power to Harris

March 25, 2021

Biden declares Harris “Speaks for me.” Who speaks for Americans?

There’s no point in tiptoeing around the unprecedented presidential calamity. It’s there for all the world, and certainly Americans, to see. The frail geriatric in the White House, scheduled to give his first press conference today, 64 days after his inauguration, is clearly unfit for the job. Elected after hiding out in his basement bunker, he has frequently stumbled, fallen and forgotten the names of his own defense secretary and other administration officials. On the campaign trail, he mistook his wife for his sister, and when trying to recite the Declaration of Independence, forgot the words, and said, “Go…oh, you know the thing.” Exhibiting signs of dementia, Biden has repeatedly referred to VP Kamala Harris as ’President Harris.”

Now the bumbling Biden who previously told the border invaders, “You should come,” is abdicating his responsibilities to contain the colossal surge of illegal aliens breaching our border, announcing he will put Kamala Harris in charge, saying, “When she speaks, she speaks for me.” Between Harris and recycled Obama administration lackey, spokesperson Jen Psaki, Biden has gotten away with being obscure and unavailable.

This announcement followed his laying blame for the current crisis at the feet of President Trump, who actually authorized the construction of a border wall and instituted policies to quell the flood of Central Americans and Mexican nationals, many of whom are unaccompanied minors traveling with dangerous members of drug cartels, during a devastatingly deadly global pandemic. Once they cross into the U.S., the holding facilities are so packed, they are given bus tickets and allowed to proceed and fan out across the United States. 

No matter what the Biden-Harris administration claims, it was the policies of President Trump that negatively impacted the invasion.

During Kamala Harris’ term as California‘s junior senator, GovTrack ranked her “Most politically left compared to All Senators” and “least likely to join bi-partisan bills.” That placed her to the left of acknowledged Socialist Bernie Sanders.


We never even liked Biden, but he’s fallen hard for us

March 20, 2021

Joe Biden, the unstable Commander-in-Chief physically stumbles repeatedly (video) while boarding Air Force One on Friday. His verbal skills are so poor, his handlers have erected an impenetrable cone of silence around him, but were unable to shield him as he took repeated falls.

This latest evidence of physical instability follows Biden’s fractured right foot prior to inauguration day, supposedly tripping over his shaggy dog story. Couple these incidents with his cognitive instability, and it’s obvious Americans have an unprecedentedly wobbly occupant in the White House. It’s increasingly clear he’s not going to be able to fill out a four-year term. Today marks day 60 since this bumbling, frail shell of a man has taken office. Joe Biden has yet to hold a press conference as his handlers form a protective barrier around him and his guarded press secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, does his talking for him

PJ Media presents an astute analysis of the soft coverage Biden gets from the ubiquitous leftist media titled,Why Does the Biden Falling on the Stairs Story Matter? Let’s Ask Chris Cillizza.” In it reporter Matt Margolis makes these solid observations:

“If (CNN’s) Cillizza were to treat Biden the same way he treated Trump, he would note that at 78, Joe Biden took office as the oldest man to occupy the White House. He would cite the fact that Biden has had brain surgery twice following a brain aneurysm and make references to the plethora of evidence that Biden has been suffering from cognitive decline. Cillizza would be remiss to not point out that the day prior to this infamous fall heard ’round the world, Biden called Kamala Harris “President Harris,” and in recent weeks, he’s forgotten the names of his own defense secretary, and other colleagues in government.”

How long before VP Kamala Harris will be acclaimed as the first woman occupying the Oval Office? The media should ask Barack Obama, the man behind the curtain and string pulling puppeteer extraordinaire.


Dems gear up 2024 campaign with $1.9 trillion “giveaway”

March 12, 2021

“Help is Here Tour” integral to democrat strategy

The Washington Examiner exposes the Biden/Harris administration’s effort to deploy an all-hands-on-deck messaging blitz to peddle the $1.9 trillion supposed coronavirus relief package to red states. And while they were indebting future generations, the radical left found time to ram through two restrictive gun control measures H.R. 8 and H.R.1446. The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, released this statement.

The pork laden legislation* was passed along party lines with not a single Republican supporting the exorbitant and unaffordable spending, 5000+ page monstrosity. The Washington Times exposed what it referred to as “Pork wrapped in a stimulus” using these words: “Only 9% of the nearly $2 trillion in spending is dedicated to coronavirus relief and the other 91% goes to money for the arts, humanities, transportation, abortion, loan forgiveness for students and “socially disadvantaged farmers.”

Be aware that the “Help is Here Tour,” is an early campaign strategy to ensure Kamala Harris will be elected president in 2024, though there is little doubt she’ll be in the Oval Office before then. Dems are banking on the distribution of $1,400 direct payments to millions of American households will be a winning election reminder. No one will be told that we will be owned by Japan and the Communist nation of China, since they hold the majority of our debt

With the onset of what was called the trade war in 2018, concern has risen over China possibly weaponizing its immense U.S. debt holding as a way to retaliate against trade tariffs. President Donald Trump began setting tariffs and other trade barriers on China with the goal of forcing it to make changes to unfair trade practices and intellectual property theft.

The Biden administration has encouraged House Democrats to “speak up and speak out” about their plan, acknowledging Barack Obama “paid a price” when public opinion turned against his stimulus legislation and Obamacare. Dems lost the House majority in 2010 and their Senate majority shriveled.

Biden ventriloquist Jen Psaki, posing as his press secretary, previously worked for Biden’s now string-pulling puppeteer Obama. She recently stated, “Any of my colleagues at the time would say that we didn’t do enough to explain to the American people what the benefits were of the rescue plan and we didn’t do enough to do it in terms that people would be talking about at their dinner tables. That’s one of the reasons we, of course, have been trying to break down the impact of the American rescue plan into the key components that will impact people directly.”  In other words, the administration leftists regard taxpaying American citizens who are funding this economic calamity as dolts who have to be incrementally spoon fed their extremist agenda.

Psaki then spoke glowingly about the coronavirus vaccines, for which the current administration attempts to take credit, hoping the American public will forget about President Trump’s implementation of Operation Warp Speed which accelerated COVID-19 vaccine development and distribution.

Joe Biden’s policies cause border crisis

March 5, 2021

First, let’s get the definitions straight. The surge of people flooding across our southern border are not immigrants or migrants. They are illegal aliens…foreign nationals…who are criminally breaching America’s sovereign border.

Immigrants apply through a legal process to enter our country and become American citizens. Migrants are the cliff swallows that come yearly to San Juan Capistrano, California from Goya, Argentina, a 6,000 mile trip, and return home. They also do not present a health threat to Americans who are racing to get inoculated against a deadly and easily transmitted virus. And while millions of Americans are unemployed, Biden is intent on importing workers to compete for American jobs.

Joe Biden has been president since January 20th, yet has already overseen a massive influx of illegals with a projection of 117,000 unaccompanied minors being brought here by their well-paid human traffickers and drug cartels before the soaring summer temperatures makes the arduous trip even more perilous. They are overwhelming the border facilities and many are released to a parent or other family member in this country, the majority of whom are here illegally. Not surprisingly, the number of UACs (Unaccompanied Alien Children) from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, has surged in recent years as family members in the United States and UACs have exploited this loophole. The increase in this transnational crime has intensified under Joe Biden after flattening under President Trump. Biden and his handlers see the illegals as future democrats.

Joe Biden’s message promoted by his Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas who declares, “There is no crisis at the border”?

We are not saying don’t come, we’re saying don’t come now…

Cuban-born Mayorkas’ senate confirmation was not a landslide. Recycled from the Obama administration and notable for implementing the controversial Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) scheme (originally promoted as the warm and fuzzy sounding D.R.E.A.M. Act), he was confirmed by a nearly straight party line vote with a slim margin of reliable Republicrat defectors: Senators Shelley Moore Capito (WV); Rob Portman (OH); Susan Collins (ME); Mitt Romney (UT); Lisa Murkowski (AK); and Dan Sullivan (AK) voted with the Democrats. Pat Toomey (PA), who is not running for reelection, did not vote.

These are going to be a long four years.
