Trump in Phx today! Allies, foes will feel effect

July 24, 2021

Donald Trump’s visit to Phoenix today will present more than an opportunity to welcome him back, but also provide an insight into Arizona’s upcoming election cycle. Those who appear with the 45th president will stand apart from those who will be AWOL from what is being billed as the “Rally To Protect Our Elections!”

Best bets are those who have issued excuses, hoping to straddle the political fence, will account for their lack of spine at the polls. Gov. Doug Ducey sealed his fate with conservatives when he very publicly refused to answer a “Hail to the Chief” ring tone call from President Trump. Term-limited AG Mark Brnovich, a McCain ally and former private prison lobbyist, who never lets us forget he is the son of Yugoslavian immigrants, is now running for the U.S. Senate while keeping his distance from Trump — a move that will not endear him to the GOP base. Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson, a prominent donor and governor wannabe with little to recommend her for the state’s top job other than marrying wealthy developer Ed Robson who indulges her whims. She will conveniently be “out of town,” sealing her fate, as well.

As president, Donald Trump’s domestic and international policies were extraordinary victories. Our economy surged under his administration.

When the deadly COVID-19 pandemic hit, Pres. Trump presided over Operation Warp Speed, accelerating the development, manufacture, and distribution of vaccines.

He kept his promises on everything from initiating border wall construction halting the flood of illegal aliens at our southern border to meeting with previously ignored North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, in an effort to open dialogue with the communist leader. Although other presidents have vowed to do so for decades, Trump was the first president to fulfill the promise of recognizing Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel and moving the U.S. Embassy, as Katie Pavlich noted in 2017.

Insightful Americans felt pride in our nation’s strong position on the world stage.

Today we will have the opportunity to observe who joins President Trump on stage at the candidate’s forum that precedes the rally at the downtown Arizona Federal Theater.

It matters. A lot.

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.

* U.S. Customs and Border Protection provides these shocking and most updated numbers for Fiscal Year 2021 to Date Stats for June 2021. Check out the percentage increases. Between February and March 2021, after newly installed Joe Biden assumed the presidency, 1,076,242 illegals entered the United States. The numbers have not abated.


Obiden admin. pushes mass amnesty to fortify dem party

July 17, 2021

Federal Judge halts DACA scheme in Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, South Carolina and West Virginia 

Nearly a decade ago, when Barack Obama pushed for DACA for illegal aliens, he claimed, “This is not amnesty, it is not immunity, it is not a pathway to citizenship.” Most Americans knew he was lying through his pearly whites. Now blatantly pulling the strings on the Biden administration, saying Joe is “finishing the job,” of his presidency, VP Kamala Harris is brazenly calling for a “pathway to citizenship” that gives “relief and hope to talented, driven, patriotic young people.”

The charade needs to be exposed for what it is.

In 2018, SRAZ wrote “…most are adults, not “kids,” which reveals the truth about DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients. There is no accurate means of verifying if they were brought into the U.S. as infants by their illegally invading parents or arrived last year after hoisting themselves over the border.” We noted that many of them are grandparents, not babes in arms. One category they surely fit is a large, reliable democrat voting bloc.

At the time, The Washington Examiner exposed the amnesty scheme for what it was. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), still under the spell of John McCain, joined with Jeff Flake and Dick Durbin (D-Ill) on pushing the measure that ultimately failed.

Fast forward to July 16, 2021. A federal judge in Texas on Friday ordered an end to an Obama-era program that prevented the deportations of what cunningly became known as DREAMERs supposedly brought into the United States as children. In 2006, Kris Kobach, constitutional law professor, former Kansas Secretary of State and author of Arizona’s SB 1070, wrote, “The Senate Immigration Bill Rewards Lawbreaking: Why the DREAM Act Is a Nightmare.” Kobach is currently running for Kansas’ Attorney General.

On Friday, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, nominated by George W. Bush and confirmed by a 97- 0 senate vote,  ruled in favor of Texas and eight other states that sued to halt the DACA program, which provides protections to an estimated three-quarters of a million illegals.

Our votes matter. Among their many duties, U.S. Senators confirm federal judges, who are often on the bench for decades.

Conservative businessman Jim Lamon is challenging far-leftist, 2nd amendment restrictionist, benefactor of nefarious China deals and Obama insider Mark Kelly, who has been funded by Socialist George Soros. We have a chance to make a difference.


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.

* The Washington Times’ Cheryl K. Chumley exposed this 2019 anti-Constitutional secret voting scheme to remove President Trump from office, topped by a photo of the lead instigator, Jeff the Flake.


Biden’s border crisis even worse than we thought

July 6, 2021

Dems view invasion of unvaccinated and uneducated as future democrat voters

With the Biden administration’s weakness evident to those from Central America, Mexico and Special Interest Aliens who continually breach our southern border, it’s worth paying attention to the criminal aspect of who is entering.

As bizarre as it sounds, recent “guidance from Biden’s acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement  Director Tae Johnson instructs agents not to pursue illegal aliens for arrest and deportation until they have been convicted of aggravated felonies against Americans — crimes such as rape, murder, child pornography, sexual abuse of a minor, trafficking firearms, and theft.

On its heels came this “Policy Alert” from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services carrying the subject line: “Bona Fide Determination Process for Victims of Qualifying Crimes, and Employment Authorization and Deferred Action for Certain Petitioners.”

In plain English, our government is prioritizing illegals who claim they are crime victims…rather than perpetrators.

The victims Pres. Joe Biden and his disinterested, perpetually  cackling “border czar” VP Kamala Harris should focus on are Americans.

FAIR (Federation for American Immigration Reform) has actively monitored the Biden Administration’s inaction and the criminal invaders who are being welcomed without any consideration for the well-being of Americans.

This datelined list of Examples of Serious Crimes By Illegal Aliens is well worth your time. It exposes the fallacy that these are “just good folks, trying to make a better life for themselves.”

Preston Huennekens, FAIR’s Government Relations Manager, highlights the border policy differences between the Trump and Biden border administrations, headlining his June report, “May Border Apprehensions Reach 21-Year High.”

This Center for Immigration Studies report, “MS-13 Resurgence: Immigration Enforcement Needed to Take Back Our Streets,” details horrific crimes committed at an alarming rate by violent gang members. The numbers have obviously increased since this was written in 2018.

Sanctuary cites, counties and states providing safe havens to criminal aliens have proliferated across our nation.

REMINDER TO OUR READERS: In accordance with our 2020 established policy, the word “democrat” or its derivatives will no longer be capitalized on this site. The exception is when the word is capitalized in quotes or beginning a sentence.


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.


Kamala Harris’ quick Mexico trip: I came, I saw, arrivederci

June 27, 2021

Leftist immigration policy has predictably dire border consequences

VP Kamala Harris finally took a sanitized trip to El Paso on Friday, three months after she was named the border czarina by Pres. Joe Biden, and facing mounting pressure for not attending to business, to which she cackled in response. She briefly visited an ICE facility, staying out of the sun and avoiding the harsh reality of a steady stream of illegal aliens crossing into the United States. A recent headline following her trip? “More migrants will now get 2nd chance at asylum.”

With audacity in abundance, she actually stated the Biden administration had made progress tackling the “tough situation we inherited.”

Apparently the Vice President, who has steadfastly avoided the border since her March 24 appointment to oversee the calamitous situation, has forgotten that border wall construction was an issue that President Trump campaigned on and was elected to fulfill. Progress was being made until Biden’s surrogates authorized dismantling of completed wall sections and a halt to new construction, creating the current crisis.

Since Biden has undone the effective policies from Day One of his administration, illegal aliens have crossed the southern border at a record rate of nearly 180,000 per month, according to data supplied by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

On his first day in office, signing myriad pre-prepared leather bound executive orders, Biden also overturned President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, affecting illegals awaiting immigration decisions. In the ensuing months, unaccompanied minors, being exploited by transporting drug cartels have become a major problem at the border. Kamala Harris’ response? Listen.

Is it any wonder this June 23, Rasmussen Reports indicates 55 percent of voters support election audits?

          


Desperate border state Guvs Ducey, Abbott request help…

June 17, 2021

Gov. DeSantis responds

Governors Doug Ducey (R-AZ) and Greg Abbott (R-TX) recently sent this 2-page letter (click to enlarge) to their fellow governors urgently requesting help securing the border that they describe as “a disaster” and “a crisis” ignored by the Biden administration. The two governors cite the Emergency Management Assistance Compact that empowers states to help one another in times of disaster or emergency. It was originally enacted in 1996.

Gov. Ron DeSantis, (R-Fla) was first to respond, stating:

“America’s border security crisis impacts every state and every American. Governors Abbott and Ducey recently sent out a call for help to every state in the nation, needing additional law enforcement manpower and other resources to aid with border security. I’m proud to announce today that the state of Florida is answering the call. Florida has your back.”

When the federal government shows no commitment to protecting our sovereign border or ensuring the safety and security of American citizens, it’s good to know that this crisis is not a back burner issue for governors who have to deal with the illegal invasion by providing benefits to those who wantonly disregard our laws. Rewarding lawbreakers only encourages more of the same, depraved pedophiles and deadly drunk and wrong way driver’s, among them. On March 24, — three months ago — Biden appointed VP Kamala Harris as border czar, but she has yet to give more than lip service punctuated by her notorious cackle, to the border.  Former President Trump has been invited to the border by Gov. Greg Abbott, and will be visiting it again Wednesday, June 30, 2021.

These numbers provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection show the staggering upsurge in illegal alien invaders. Be aware that “encounters” do not translate to “apprehensions.” Illegal crossings have surged by 674% in a year, with 180,034 reported in May.


SCOTUS rules illegals do not have a right to Green Cards

June 9, 2021

Sanity prevails in unanimous U.S. Supreme Court decision

The U.S. Supreme Court, in a 9-0 unanimous decision, ruled on Monday that illegal aliens who have been granted temporary humanitarian relief from deportation cannot use the process known as “adjustment of status” to obtain lawful permanent residency in the United States without leaving the country. The court ruled in Sanchez v. Mayorkas that adjustment of status is reserved for those who were inspected at the border and admitted to the United States by an immigration officer, thus disqualifying the majority of those granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS). Justice Elena Kagan, nominated to the Supreme Court by President Barack Obama in 2010, wrote the opinion for the court.

El Salvadoran nationals, Jose Sanchez and Sonia Gonzalez illegally entered the United States decades ago. The U.S. government granted them temporary protection in 2001 when it designated El Salvador as part of the TPS program in the wake of damaging earthquakes in that country.

Sanchez and Gonzalez have maintained TPS status for 20 years, during which Sanchez’s employer filed an immigration-visa petition for Sanchez as a “skilled worker.” Immigration officials approved this petition, authorizing Sanchez to be admitted to the United States as a lawful permanent resident. They simultaneously granted the same approval for Gonzalez.

The U.S. government, however, denied the couple’s subsequent application to use the adjustment-of-status process in order to transition from temporary to permanent residency without leaving the United States. Immigration officials ruled that the couple’s original illegal entry disqualified them from adjustment of status. The government relied on the text of Immigration and Nationality Act Section 1255(a), which restricts the in-country adjustment-of-status process to illegal aliens who were “inspected and admitted or paroled into the United States.”

Notice that the U.S. Law refers to the persons in question as “aliens,” throughout. The words, migrants, undocumented, refugees, and asylum seekers are constructs of the left in describing America’s invaders.

This illuminating commentary, “Illegal Alien”: The Proper Terminology, posted on Federation for American Immigration Reform, by Eric A. Ruark is definitely worth your time.

In 2017 there were an estimated 400,000 people from 12 countries with TPS status. That was likely an undercount, which has no doubt escalated in the intervening years. At the time, they were identified as coming across our southern border from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Myanmar, Nepal, Nicaragua, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen.

In truth, we have no handle on who is illegally invading the United States, and the democrats have no desire to stop the invasion from which they benefit.


Not proficient in Spanish? The AZ República will handle that

June 6, 2021

Since a dwindling number of Arizonans subscribe to the radically left-wing local newspaper, there is likely an unawareness of its most recent move to de-anglicize its reporting. In today’s edition there is a revealing article titled, “Mexicans living abroad to gain representative in Mexico.” It details how illegal aliens from Mexico City who have invaded the United States will be able to elect a “migrant representative to act on their behalf as a member of congress in the city.”

If that’s not convoluted enough to make American heads spin, the report contains a first for the newspaper we have sarcastically referred to as the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic):

“México is set to host its largest election ever, with 500 seats up for grabs, ranging from local and regional representatives to gubernatorial positions all over the country.

And while several states will be electing a statewide migrant representative, only the country’s capital is allowing migrants currently residing outside of the country to vote for this specific seat. For Arizonans who are natives of México City and have registered to vote, that means they can cast a ballot come Sunday.”

Notice the accent mark that is a new addition to the word Mexico? Unless you are willing to be culturally reacclimated by the leftist newspaper, this overreach is an insult. 

The newspaper’s commitment to diversity has been given front page coverage by executive editor, Greg Burton as he details the new hiring practices that include “the goal to match a community that is 44% people of color.”

Hiring based on qualifications is a outdated concept at the newspaper. In order to authentically report the news, diversity takes precedent. This offensive concept invalidates professionals in all walks of life. Having a degree that relates to your line of work is no longer paramount. To be considered a valuable employee it’s imperative you represent a specific ethnicity and have the proper amount of melanin in your skin pigment — traits over which none of us have any control.
