Radical Sinema appears to veer right. What’s up?

Sinema joins GOP senators urging shortening of asylum review

After reading that Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, a committed leftist, is taking a more appropriate hard line on illegals flooding across Arizona’s southern border, checking out her voting record made sense.

It turns out, though her views are consistently far left, ranging from her pro-abortion stance to withholding funding for the border wall, she has been voting with the Republican majority on more issues than would be expected. Conservative Review rightly gives Sinema an “F” Liberty Score.

According to her senate website, Sinema is now taking a stand against Mexican raw sewage flowing across the border into Nogales, AZ.

“Right now, the people of Nogales are forced to pay for Mexico’s sewage costs. That’s not fair, and we’re working to fix the problem so Nogales residents only pay for their responsibility,” said Sinema.

Sinema’s topic also rings true as it relates to the border invasion.

In this letter sent to President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, led a bipartisan group of senators — including Sinema — urging DHS to begin “Operation Safe Return” along a portion of the U.S./Mexico border. The program would allow immigration officials to implement a pilot program streamlining the asylum review process, permitting border officials to deport families without credible asylum claims within 15 days. The exploited children in many of those so-called families, were unrelated to the adults, but used to prioritize their processing.

This is not a reliable as it sounds, since the majority of illegal aliens have been coached by activists and immigration lawyers on the exact words to say to get them into the legal pipeline. If the Central Americans were actually seeking asylum, why didn’t they make such claims when they initially entered Mexico? One reason is the generous taxpayer-funded benefits illegals are able to access in the United States. The Center for Immigration Studies reports, 63% of non-citizen households access welfare programs.

Johnson and Sinema were joined by Republican Sens. Rob Portman, (OH); James Lankford, (OK); Michael Enzi, (WY); John Barrasso, (WY); and John Cornyn (TX). Democrat Sens. Joe Manchin (WV) and Doug Jones (AL) also signed on.

Sheriff Penzone welcomes illegals, evicts disabled vet

July 18, 2019

Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone is a man with little to recommend him. As a police officer separated from his first wife, he roughed her up when she didn’t have their son’s hockey gear beside the door when he arrived to pick the boy up. The redacted Glendale police report, previously available online, was removed when he took his second stab at running for sheriff after losing to popular six-term Sheriff Joe Arpaio in 2012. 

Democrat Penzone won in 2016, thanks to socialist multi-billionaire George Soros, who pumped nearly $3 Million into Penzone’s campaign as he made overhauling the U.S. criminal justice system a priority. Penzone was also the beneficiary of relentless hammering of Sheriff Arpaio by the failing daily newspaper where Arpaio’s anything-for-a-buck son-in-law Phil Boas, the editorial page editor, oversaw the daily assault on his wife’s father.

Back in 2011, Human Events listed the “Top 10 Reasons George Soros Is Dangerous,” referring to him as “the single most destructive leftist demagogue in the country.” Soros is also a globalist who despises national borders.

Soon after Penzone took office, he gave a nod to his open border supporting benefactor Soros, by referring to illegal invaders flooding Arizona as “guests.”

With these facts as background it’s not difficult to grasp the callousness of Penzone’s actions in seizing and auctioning off the mobile home belonging to a disabled military veteran — for “outstanding back taxes.” In fact, the $405.70 tax payment was made by owner Jim Boerner a full week before the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office sold his home.

Penzone claimed his officers who seized the property weren’t aware of the payment until after the home was put up for auction and sold to a buyer on June 20. Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery is currently reviewing the legality of the sale of the vet’s mobile home.

The Maricopa County Treasurer’s Office, which collects and administers taxes, says the payment was legally processed and the outstanding debt was paid on June 13, by Jim Boerner whether the sheriff knew about it or not.

Ignorance is no defense for acting reprehensively.  Most importantly, the buck stops with Penzone.


Sheriff Joe sightings drive local newspaper berserk

July 15, 2019

Arpaio supporters know how to raise the left’s ire

It’s mid-July in Phoenix. Garden flowers wilt. Heat-induced lethargy sets in. This is hardly the time to taunt voters with campaign related enigmas. But if any name is a guaranteed attention grabber, it’s that of retired Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. 

The lunatics at the local newspaper are going even battier — with a report about the popular former sheriff, elected to an unprecedented six-four-year terms from 1993 to 2016. 

The report derisively describes large billboards mysteriously springing up around the Valley, making it all the more amusing to read. The billboards, featuring a large photo of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a badge affixed to his tailored uniform shirt, with law enforcement emblems on each upper sleeve, looks official enough to be a campaign ad. The rest of the billboard has white lettering on bright red background:  “Sheriff Joe.  One More time.  2020.”

That’s it. There is no declaration of an office, or who paid for the signs, though the spectacular tease exemplifies Arpaio, which makes it priceless.

The anything-for-a-buck editorial page editor Phil Boas, fearful of being next among the myriad staff cuts at the failing newspaper, reprehensibly oversaw the daily multi-pronged assault on Arpaio — his own father-in-law.

Current Sheriff Paul Penzone, who Boas helped elect, is supportive of open borders, and notable for referring to illegal aliens as “guests” immediately after he was sworn in. He won with a reported $3 Million cash infusion from his Socialist benefactor George Soros, who also funded the campaign of Kim Foxx, when she was a candidate for Cook County State’s Attorney.

Foxx, whose office became notorious after she dropped all charges against Empire actor Jussie Smollett following revelations he falsified a racist and homophobic attack against himself in a failed effort to raise his profile and salary. She was featured at a fundraiser hosted by Alex Soros, son of radical leftist billionaire, George Soros, who also donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to a super PAC supporting her.

Globalist Soros, also a dedicated McCain supporter, disdains national borders and favoring laxer criminal prosecution, used the same tactics in his failed attempt to remove Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery — attempting to replace him with an unknown, accommodating leftist. High dollar donations funneled through his PACs are his modus operandi throughout the country as noted by Politico in this report: George Soros’ quiet overhaul of the U.S. justice system. We urge you to read it.  Knowledge is power.  Prepare for the coming elections.


How did police become the enemy?

Leftists get tough supporting invasion

After watching caravans of hundreds of thousands of Central Americans plow through our sovereign border, the far left has become so acclimated to the illegal invasion they are willing to take on law enforcement officers and risk arrest to protect those who hold this country and the rule of law in contempt.

We witnessed this distortion as a reported 100+ people assembled in downtown Phoenix to protest the planned roundup of illegal aliens by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers slated to begin today.

Two of the 16 protesters who were arrested in downtown Phoenix face charges of aggravated assault on a police officer after they attempted to prevent officers from arresting other participants. Protesters filled the streets and blocked traffic following a rally at a local church. They also blocked the light-rail tracks, bringing traffic to a standstill.

This is emblematic of the topsy-turvy world in which we live, where students are systematically dumbed down, given scant instruction in American history and taught that we are an aggressor nation — made even worse by a capitalistic system — which, in fact, separates us from the harsh realities of Socialism such as the people of Cuba and Venezuela endure.

In Arizona last year, Gov. Doug Ducey rewarded teachers with a 20% raise for their part time jobs, as they embarked on a week-long strike and abandoned, in violation of their contractual agreements, an estimated 840,000 Arizona students.

This past Thursday, traffic on Tempe’s Mill Avenue Bridge was shut down and three women were arrested as protesters from Black Lives Matter railed against police.  

On the Fourth of July a reprehensible incident occurred in a Tempe Starbucks, when a barista asked police officers to leave the premises because a customer complained of feeling “unsafe” with officers in the establishment. Several of those officers were veterans who had fought for our country.

In an increasingly hostile environment, police officers put their lives on the line every day as they leave their families to go to work, where they often have to make split-second decisions, and are now routinely covered by an antagonistic media.

Jeri Williams, the weak Phoenix Police Chief, has given increased authority to a citizen review board to second guess officer’s decisions. Though she’s swore to uphold the law, Williams does give her unequivocal support to so-called “Dreamers” — saying she “supports policies” that allow the unverifiable claims of illegals to lawfully remain in the USA.  Those “polices” are known as amnesty.


Displacing US workers with imports is lunacy

July 9, 2019

Our interest was piqued Monday by a comment on SRAZ linking to this Breitbart report. To call it disturbing would be the height of understatement. Cloak and dagger mysteries have more light directed on them than HR.1044. (Text).

This list, with Democrats first, followed by go-along to get-along Republicans, details who signed on to U.S. House Leftist Zoe Lofgren’s Green Card Giveaway Act. The bill authorizes expansion of the importation of college-educated Green Card workers, mainly from India, who will displace American citizens with college degrees and new grads who have trained and gone into debt obtaining their educations.

We expect to see AZ Democrats Ruben Gallego, Ann Kirkpatick, Tom O’Halleran and Greg Stanton signing on to this unprincipled legislation, though surprisingly Raul Grijalva‘s name was missing. But seeing Arizona Republicans Debbie Lesko and David Schweikert, canoodling on this bill with the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortz, Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler was jarring.

Jessica M. Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies for Washington based Center for Immigration Studies, notes “House Democrats reportedly are trying to pass the bill on the Consensus Calendar, which allows the bill to pass on a fast track without a hearing or rule for amendments.” The bullet points on her brief but informative fact sheet, are must reads.

Jon Miano, writing for CIS, provides an overview, referring to the “Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act,” as misnamed — calling it out as “dishonest.”

The vote was scheduled to take place Monday. Attempting to research who voted aye or nay dead-ended. Pertinent information is under wraps.

Earlier this year, Rep. Zoe Lofgren and Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced the Agricultural Worker Program Act (H.R. 641) intended to “shield farm workers from deportation and put them on a path toward earned legal status and eventual citizenship.”

Democrats view illegal aliens as a powerful voting bloc, which is why they are in the forefront of normalizing their illegitimate status, with sanctuary cities and offering them free health care and taxpayer-funded social benefits — as if they needed inducements.  This amounts to unsustainable lunacy.

In 2017, the fiscal burden of illegal immigration was factored at $216 Billion yearly in this report compiled by the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

On average the U.S. generously admits a million legal immigrants yearly. We have a right, as well as an obligation to our own citizens, to control our borders and determine who enters. The recent caravans of hundred of thousands of Central Americans invaders given access by Mexico, only stopped when President Trump threatened imposing tariffs against Mexican imports. He was widely assailed by the left for his stance, but it worked. Now congress is engaging in a devious end run.


Lawmakers become lawbreakers

July 7, 2019

Democrats Rep. Veronica Escobar and Sen. Cory “I am Spartacus” Booker flout the law to gain votes…as Dem Robert O’Rourke takes his presidential campaign directly to Mexico

The fact that the despicable antics of U.S. Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX) are garnering national exposure is significant.  But having members of congress who take an oath “to support and defend the United States …” actually aid and abet criminality, is beyond abhorrent.

Escobar, who replaced Democrat presidential candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke in the U.S. House, has been exposed as secretly sending her staff into Mexico to coach illegal aliens how to qualify for asylum protection.

According to the National Border Patrol Council’s El Paso chapter and several Customs and Border Protection personnel, Congresswoman Escobar is sending her staff to Mexico’s northern border town of Ciudad Juarez to find illegals returned from El Paso, Texas, under the “remain in Mexico” policy, and coaching them to pretend they cannot speak Spanish to exploit a loophole letting them to return to the U.S.

Under the Migrant Protection Protocols, or “Remain in Mexico” policy, anyone returned must be fluent in Spanish since they may have to reside in Mexico up to five years until a U.S. federal judge is able to process their asylum claim, among 100’s of thousands.

Although her bio states Escobar “is a fierce advocate for the rights of all El Paso residents,” she obviously has a problem differentiating American citizens from those of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

This past week, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, another in the pack of Democrat presidential candidates, was also in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and personally escorted five invading women (as reported by The Lid, complete with photo) as they illegally crossed the U.S. southern border.

Booker, aiding and abetting criminality, is a Democrat presidential candidate, as is Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, who took the novel approach of campaigning directly to Mexicans in Juarez, speaking to them in Spanish, as reported by BizPac Review.

Violating the law and ignoring American citizens has oddly become the issue that radical leftist office holders and candidates for the presidency regard as persuasive in broadening their constituent base.

Americans who care about the future of our country will vote Republican and support President Donald J. Trump’s reelection in 2020.

It matters now more than ever.


Of course, Census citizenship question matters*

July 6, 2019

U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts mimics Sandra Day O’Connor, Anthony Kennedy as swing vote

On Friday, the Justice Department said it will continue researching for legal grounds to include a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. Earlier President Trump said he is “very seriously” considering an executive order to get the question on the form.

Although the Dems are hard at work attempting to politicize it, the issue of incorporating the citizenship question on the U.S. Census form, has far reaching ramifications that affect us all.

Congressional districts are apportioned based on the number of voting citizens as opposed to residents.

The Hill released the findings of a Hill-HarrisX survey conducted in late April, showing 60% of Americans support having the citizenship question included on the census form. Support cut across all demographics.

The U.S. Census Bureau explains the history of place of birth, citizenship, year of entry questions, noting the citizenship question originated with the 1820 Census, place of birth originated with the 1850 Census, and year of entry originated with the 1890 Census. In 2005, the USCB transferred to the American Community Survey replacing the decennial census long form.

The citizenship question should not be controversial. Most nations ask it, including Mexico and Canada. The United Nations recommends the practice. The United States previously asked about citizenship as well, but since 1950 the question has not been included in the census forms that most people receive. (A much longer, more detailed questionnaire sent to a small sample of households chosen at random includes the question, which has not previously been a hotly debated topic revving up the ACLU and Democrat presidential candidates until the advent of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Last week, a divided Supreme Court — with Chief Justice John Roberts disappointingly swinging left again and joining four Democrats — ruled that the Trump administration’s stated reason for including a question about citizenship on the 2020 census — to help the Department of Justice better enforce federal voting rights laws — was a pretext. The “evidence,” Chief Roberts wrote, “tells a story that does not match the explanation that” Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross provided. The case has been sent back to the Department of Commerce.

Justice Clarence Thomas, in a dissent joined by Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, wrote that Ross’ decision “was legally sound and a reasoned exercise of his broad discretion.”

When his vote holds massive and long-ranging implications such as with the 2012 opinion upholding Obamacare, Roberts caves.

President Trump said his administration is exploring a number of legal options, including issuing an executive order which have been used by all presidents — with Bill Clinton topping the list at 364.
