Biden sinks in polls: Dems fear he’ll negatively impact midterms

January 18, 2022

A newly released Gallup poll indicates Joe Biden’s administration’s failures have given a significant boost to the Republican Party.

Americans’ political party preference during 2021 shifted from democrat to Republican in the largest move since Gallup began regularly measuring party identification in 1991.

In an extraordinary plunge, democrats went from a nine-percentage-point advantage in the first quarter of 2021 to a five-point reduction trailing Republicans in the fourth quarter, Gallup reported Monday.

According to the non-partisan polling organization a total of 49% of Americans identified themselves as democrat in last year’s first quarter, but that has plummeted to 42% in the final quarter. Survey respondents identifying as Republican increased from 40% to 47% during the same period.

Two months ago, (Nov.18, 2021) Gallup titled its coverage, “Biden Approval Ratings Mostly Underwater“ It’s worsened since then as Americans react to the democrat’s outrageous and unsustainable $trillions of spending and runaway inflation. Soaring crime rates, flagrantly open border policies, and the continued virus (now with “variants“), which Biden campaigned on “shutting down,” all point to Biden’s inabilities to effectively govern. Frail Biden even fell asleep at a global climate summit and during a meeting with Israel’s prime minister.

Seventy-six percent of those surveyed January 12, by Quinnipiac University pollsters said they think political instability in the United States is a bigger danger than foreign threats.

A startling majority of those polled — 58 percent — said they think the nation’s democracy is in danger of collapse. Only thirty-seven percent disagreed.

Real Clear Politics is known for its polling aggregators. The one known as State of the Union shows ‘Biden’s Job Approval Ratings’ as well as the ‘Direction of the Country.’

Slo Joe Biden is not up to any aspect of the job of president of the United States. Thank the democrats you know.

Leftist lunacy invades NYC elections: Voting non-citizens is ‘best choice’

January 11, 2022

If you thought former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was dreadful, meet the newly elected New York City Mayor Eric Adams, who pledges to “reduce inequality.” Among his schemes, Adams has allowed the “Our City Our Vote” measure to become law, giving approximately 800,000 non-citizens the right to vote in municipal elections. The ultimate goal of the scheme is the grateful voters will permanently increase the size of the democrat party’s footprint.

The exact language of the bill is inaccessible, though numerous sites provide radical reasons why illegal aliens should be able to vote in NYC’s elections.

The New York Post tweeted, ‘Mayor Eric Adams says allowing non-citizens to vote for NYC elections is ‘best choice.’

Adams is wrong. Citizenship confers certain privileges. The right to vote is one of them.

Biden regime now assaults 2nd Amendment

January 4, 2022

Jan 4, 2022 Presidential approval rating reveal 58% disapprove of Biden’s job performance as Pres. Trump schedules AZ rally

The Biden regime is not satisfied with the catastrophic economy exemplified by record high inflation, a national security crisis at our southern border and faulty decisions that have made us dependent on foreign oil after shutting down the Keystone Pipeline, which cost thousands of Americans their jobs. The botched withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan was an unprecedented, international disaster. We also witness expanded cases of Covid virus variants in addition to the single one which Biden claimed to end once elected. These calamities and numerous others, all come gift wrapped in increased government regulations, further constricting our freedoms.

As expected, the Second Amendment is now openly under assault. The  Department of Justice, overseen by Biden’s radical leftist, pro-abortion, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, issued this media release on Monday, couched in euphemisms but clearly intended to restrict our Second Amendment rights. Carrying the unwieldy title, “Justice Department Announces New Rule to Help Enhance Safe and Secure Storage of Firearms; Publishes Best Practices Guide for Federal Firearms Licensees,” it is well worth your time.

Americans are paying attention.

Rasmussen Reports presidential polling released today (January 4, 2022) reflects the lack of confidence American voters have in Joe Biden as his approval rating continues to tank. The respected polling site states, “Only 40% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Biden’s job performance. Fifty-eight percent (58%) disapprove. The latest figures include 19% who Strongly Approve of the job Biden is doing and 48% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -29.”

Former President Donald Trump has scheduled a Save America rally Saturday, January 15, 2022 in Florence, Arizona, at Country Thunder Festival Grounds. Time, address and ticket information is available here.

AZ Republic reneges on subscribers third time since Sept.

December 30, 2021

Are sporadic deliveries the new normal? Will bills deduct missing issues?

Following the announcement that there would be no Labor Day delivery to subscribers — ostensibly to give workers the day to spend with family — the Arizona Republic newspaper shut down the print editions for three days over Christmas. The latest insult to its remaining subscribers is the lack of a New Year’s edition, which “will combine the Thursday, Friday and Saturday editions into a single Dec. 30, publication.“ In truth, it’s a cost cutting matter for the failing paper that has long been hemorrhaging subscriptions.

The decisions are not based in magnanimity, rather a ruthless look at the bottom line and a realization the newspaper, alternatively known as the AZ Repugnant (among other less complimentary terms) is about to join this infamous list, and wants to minimize the loss sooner rather than later. Buyouts of contracts and layoffs have been commonplace since the troubles began to mount, resulting in being bought out following being forced to sell its ten-story building and parking garage and the abrupt firing of longtime, Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist, Steve Benson, who it was no longer able to afford. Advertising revenue has plummeted and even stalwarts such as Walgreens Drugs Sunday sale insert and Sprout’s Grocery ads have vanished. The only hope of continuing is to ditch the hardcopy editions and transition to an all digital version, with few costs involved. From there it will be the trash heap of history for the formerly conservative newspaper that lost its way on the path to obliteration as it focused on promoting the illegal alien invasion.

2022 is just days away. Americans are used to instant news rather than day-old rehashes flung on the driveway or walkway.  Any news source readers’ desire is as close as their pocket. We are also able to think and are fed up with skewed, leftist agendized spew being regurgitated via biased coverage passing as news, editorials that could be written by the DNC and columnists who don’t even try to disguise their hatred of conservative elected officials. They lost, and never regained, all sense of rationality when Republican Donald Trump beat scandal-plagued, liar Hillary Clinton, who the Arizona newspaper endorsed and later whimpered, claiming it received death threats for doing so.

In a marriage, when one party welches on their commitment, a divorce ensues. In this case, there is no mention of extending the subscription for the paid-for days or deducting payment the non-delivered issues. This bilking of mostly elderly subscribers, is known as a scam and should be treated as the theft it is.

For in-depth coverage of the dying newspaper industry, this article, “Over 2000 American Newspapers Have Closed in Past 15 Years,” by Douglas A. McIntyre on 24/7 Wall St, is worth your time. We previously used the phrase, “You’ll be smarter among the water cooler crowd,” but there is no longer a water cooler as pandemic-era employees work from home or sit, jobless, collecting government checks the wild spending Biden regime uses to tether Americans to the democrat party.

The Arizona Citizen, later known as the Tucson Citizen, began publishing when Arizona was still a territory. In 1976, the Citizen was sold to Gannett Company, Inc. The last print edition was delivered on May 16, 2009. The digital successor site,, closed on January 31, 2014. The AZ Repugnant will suffer the same fate.

Brassy Biden Boondoggle: Illegal aliens airlifted into Pennsylvania

December 28, 2021

Words matter: Those used to describe illegal activity define the crime

The National Pulse headlines its revealing report, “ U.S. Govt Chartered Christmas ‘Ghost Flights’ to Carry Illegal Migrants into Pennsylvania;” It’s a stunning exposé of the Biden administration’s maneuvers to flood the United States with foreign nationals in a concerted effort to permanently transform the political demographics of the United States.

We take exception to one aspect of the report. Although the authors correctly identify Biden’s administration as a “regime,” the misuse of the words “migrant” and “immigrant,” even when coupled with illegal is erroneous and plays directly into the left’s language manipulation. “Immigrant” actually refers to someone who enters the United States legally and applies for naturalized citizenship. We welcome them. Many of our own families followed that identical path. Erroneously referring to illegal invaders as “migrants” or “immigrants” has become the prevailing, though false, terminology of the left.

As we pointed out previously, migrants are best identified by the cliff swallows that annually make the 6,000-mile trip to San Juan Capistrano, California, from Goya, Argentina, and return home. They also do not present a health threat to Americans who are getting inoculated against an often deadly and easily transmitted virus. And while millions of Americans are unemployed, Biden is intent on importing workers to compete for American jobs.

We invite our readers to take just two minutes to become better informed on this topic. Read, “Sorry, but the Accurate Legal Term is ‘Illegal Alien.’“

Biden, Fauci vax mandates invading every aspect of our lives

December 27, 2021

The Joe and Tony show shifts into high gear

This oddly undated directive from the Biden administration details the implementation of  “a six-pronged, comprehensive national strategy that employs the same science-based approach that was used to successfully combat previous variants of COVID-19 earlier this year.” It mentions the Delta variant, but omits Omicron, first identified in South Africa on Nov. 24, providing some idea of a timeline. While Biden lacks the authority to order everyone to comply, requiring federal workers and contractors doing business with the government to get immunized is within his purview. Public schools, through their leftist teacher’s unions,* have ordered shutdowns, and many parents have knuckled under to the pressure to mask and even vaccinate young children who are not carriers. Dr. Anthony Fauci has stated that double masking “makes common sense,” though Biden rarely wears a single one. It was not within a vacuum travel restrictions have increased and U.S. airlines cancelled 1,900 flights over Christmas weekend — including over 900 flights on Saturday — disrupting long-planned family holiday gatherings.

Tony Fauci didn’t stop there. He went even further, saying the United States should consider imposing a vaccination mandate for all domestic air travel. “When you make vaccination a requirement, that’s another incentive to get more people vaccinated,” he stated.  “I think that’s something that seriously should be considered.”

Next the little tyrant, who hasn’t seen a patient since he completed his residency in 1968 and proceeded directly to the National Institutes of Health, will call for mandatory quarantines, further destabilizing our lives and the shaky economy.

Biden’s operatives have ordered the Department of Health and Human Services to require hospitals and nursing homes, dependent on Medicaid and Medicare, and other entities that receive federal money, to require their employees be vaccination. Family members have been unable to be with seriously ill and dying loved ones due to the sweeping directives.

On Nov. 22, 2021, the Arizona Attorney General‘s Office** expanded this lawsuit to stop the Biden administration’s unconstitutional COVID-19 vaccine mandates for federal contractors and employees. The amended complaint adds the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association (PLEA) and the United Phoenix Firefighters Association Local 493 (UPFA) as co-plaintiffs.

Reacquaint yourself with our March 14, 2021 post, “Biden releases infected illegals into U.S., Dr. Fauci stays mum,” which includes a photo of Fauci and his friends, including the titans of globalism, and Socialist billionaire George Soros along with Bill Gates’ father who was the head of Planned Parenthood and radical left media honchos who framed the news to fit their agenda.

Now the sports world is feeling the impact of the tyrannical mandates as reported by Fox News in this headlined article, “Buffalo Bills’ Cole Beasley fined nearly $100,000 for breaking COVID rules.”

President Abraham Lincoln’s closing words from the Gettysburg Address, delivered in 1863, have been memorized by school children for generations, standing as a reminder not only of the cost of freedom, but also what it represents:

 “We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

The word, “mandates,” never passed Lincoln’s lips.

Shifty Schiff tries deflecting from his sordid connections by bashing Trump

December 23, 2021

U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) recently wrote a book. He’s had more time on his hands since his longtime pervert pal and generous donor, Ed Buck with nefarious roots in Arizona politics, has finally ended up in the slammer after being found guilty of nine felonies. Instead of hunkering down after the details of Buck’s horrific crimes emerged, leftist Schiff decided a good deflection would be to try smearing former President Donald Trump.

Schiff’s book titled, ‘Midnight in Washington: How We Almost Lost Our Democracy and Still Could,‘ is aimed at taking the onus off of Joe Biden and his unparalleled, disastrous presidency, exemplified by increased crime and laxity of punishment, the Afghanistan surrender debacle, record-breaking inflation, halting our energy self-reliance by shutting down the Keystone Pipeline while killing thousands of jobs and massive school and business closures related to his overreaches during the pandemic. These disasters are enhanced by Biden’s incompetence and obvious inability to function. Instead Schiff has gone into fling mode and following the adage of throw it on the wall and see what sticks, is not talking about testing the al dente doneness of a strand of spaghetti, but the darker and more fetid matter that nourishes the democrat hierarchy.

Following the now-disproved Russian collusion hoax perpetrated by Trump rival Hillary Clinton, Schiff made the rounds of network televised talk shows insisting that a probe of Trump was necessary.

Biden has torn down the border wall construction, surrendering our southern border to all comers worldwide — including drug dealers, human traffickers, child predators, murders, prospective terrorists, and other violent criminals, many of whom have been previously deported.  The U.S. Customs and Border Protection no longer reveals the disastrous invasion stats, but now functions as public relations for the administration complete with vision and mission statements. Biden is bankrupting America with his staggering $multi-trillion 2,465 page ‘Build Back Better’ war on reality spending scheme — but that is of no consequence as his handlers increase the momentum as crime soars and Soros-funded elected district attorneys make no effort to attach consequences to the criminality. Jobs have been lost at an alarming rate. Biden responds by putting more people on the dole, as the democrats lean further into socialism’s expansive government theme while caving to the demands of the radical teacher’s unions which funded him 6-1 over Pres. Trump.

An integral tool of the left, Speaker Nancy Pelosi named Schiff a lead impeachment manager in the fraudulent case brought against President Trump.

Prior to his incarceration, Ed Buck donated in excess of half-million dollars to top California democrats including current Gov. Gavin Newsom, former Gov. Jerry Brown, LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, and LA District Attorney Jackie Lacey. His generous donations to AZ U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, and separately to her “Getting Stuff Done” PAC are all documented on these pages made available by Open Secrets. (Press “next” in the lower right corner for the complete list.)

 Leftist network worried about Biden: Seeks 2024 replacement

December 16, 2021

Base abandoning Biden

Although the next presidential election is three years away, democrats are frantically searching for someone to replace inept Joe Biden, who is clearly unfit for the job.  

Chris Cillizza, CNN’s editor-at-large, known as a party toady, has published a list of potential replacements, following on the heels of a New York Times report on the same topic, which is obviously keeping democrats up at night.

He writes, “Combine President Joe Biden’s age (he’ll be 82 shortly after the 2024 election) and his ongoing political struggles (he’s mired in the low 40s in job approval) and you get this: a series of stories examining whether Biden runs again and, if not, who might take his place.”

These are Biden’s historically low and continuing to plummet polling numbers. He doesn’t have enough democrat votes to pass his $multi-trillion ‘Build Back Better’ farce during an election year when even democrats want to steer clear of such lunacy. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is planning to table the spending monstrosity until next year.

VP Kamala Harris is ill-equipped to handle the job. Biden put her in charge of the dangerously open border, but she has done nothing to staunch the flood of illegals surging in record numbers into the United States. She has yet to visit the border, laughingly saying she hasn’t been to Europe either. As key staffers have fled, she’s been busy redecorating her office after working with decorators on the vice-presidential residence.

Yuma, Arizona, has become the major portal for illegal aliens, who continue to arrive from 75 counties worldwide, with many bringing illegal drugs into the U.S. to finance their resettling, as they ruin American lives. Harris’ disapproval ratings rival those of Biden. Only 13 percent of democrat voters said they would support her in 2024 if Biden does not run again.

An analysis of CNN’s list of democrats who could replace Biden is not confidence inspiring, but they hit the dem’s politically correct requirements of being radicals, minorities, females or homosexual. 

Biden’s free fall plunge is noted by far-left pollsters…

December 13, 2021

…as VP Kamala Harris gets torched by WSJ

The Wall Street Journal, generally regarded as a more reliable newspaper, can’t resist teasing this headline: “Kamala Harris Needs to Get Serious,” followed by this tagger: “Her shaky standing is a danger to the country given the position she could be called on to fill.” The complete article written by Peggy Noonan, is available by subscription only, but we are including this video link.

True enough. As the man in the hefty leather chair in the Oval Office, Joe Biden has far exceeded his ‘gaffe king” status, and has clearly veered off the charts into unconcealed cognitive mental decline,* doing and saying bizarre things with increasing regularity. His polling numbers continue to plummet as seen in this Real Clear Politics aggregator of major surveys.

Even the leftwing ABC News/Ipsos tabulation taken Dec.10 -11 notes Biden’s failures surging among the Americans polled. Biden is upside-down by wide margins in myriad categories from the economy, and inflation (69% disapprove to 28% who approve), taxes, violence and crime, to dealing with Russia’s saber rattling and Biden’s ability to counter it. To the specific question, “How much do you trust Biden to negotiate on America’s behalf  with Russian leader Vladimir Putin,” only 15% said, “A great deal” to 62% who answered, “Not at all.” On the question of how Biden is handling “immigration,” the poll slyly notes, “prior to this poll, the item read “immigration and the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border.”  In their slick effort at duplicity the pollsters purposely misuse the word ”immigration,” which refers to those legally entering our country and applying for naturalized citizenship, as it falsely describes foreign nationals who illegally invade the USA…by the hundreds of thousands since the Biden administration dismantled the wall construction initiated by President Trump.

Yet the most devout leftist would have trouble being comfortable with inept, cackling Kamala. Thank the democrats you know for this unprecedented governmental catastrophe.

NYC tosses election integrity, allows illegals to vote

December 11, 2021

In Phoenix we function under a farcical “non-partisan” city council and mayoral charade that fools no one. The tie-breaking mayor, Kate Gallego is a democrat, formerly married to a current democrat Arizona congressman. The majority — five of the eight council members are democrats — including the Mexico-born Vice Mayor, who sports a long ponytail, wears tee shirts imprinted with radical slogans to work and took his oath of office on a book titled, “Occupied America.” Another, a decades-long union activist, whose parents came across the border illegally, is also a dem. 

As lopsided as the Phoenix City Council is, we have nothing on the New York City Council, which numbers fifty-one…with only four Republicans. The number far surpasses the entire membership of the Arizona state senate.

The last time New York City had an actual Republican mayor was Rudy Giuliani who served in that position from 1994 to 2001. This 2006 Gotham Gazette report tells the then-salaries of NYC’s council members, which also are increased by “stipends” and the ability to hold outside jobs. Obviously those base amounts have increased in the intervening years.

We provide this background to give the full picture of what the well-paid democrats currently in charge have just authorized for New York City. They just approved a measure that allows non-citizens to vote in city elections. This 2017 report grossly underestimated the number of illegal aliens in the New York Metro area at 1.2 million. With the surge in illegal border crossers given free reign under the Biden administration, which dismantled President Trump’s border wall construction, not including the high birth rates, that number no longer reflects anything near an accurate count.

The Heritage Foundation gifts us with a superb commentary titled, “Safeguarding the Electoral Process.” You won’t regret taking the very few minutes to read it. Knowledge is power.
