Dem opportunist Rodney Glassman now a “conservative”

July 1, 2020

Current and former Republican politicians are mysteriously crawling over one another to give their endorsements to a newly minted Democrat-turned-Republican candidate for Maricopa County Assessor. This under-the-radar, but important office deals with property tax evaluations for nearly 2 million parcels and requires utmost integrity. 

In early October the bombshell broke that Assessor Paul Petersen was arrested, facing multiple state and federal charges in connection with a fraudulent adoption and money laundering scheme stretching from the Marshall Islands to Arizona, Utah and even Arkansas. He recently pleaded guilty and faces lengthy prison time.

Since then the office has been in the capable hands of Maricopa County Assessor Eddie Cook, a trusted, conservative community leader, technology expert and former member of the Gilbert Town Council where he served for nearly a decade. Cook was unanimously appointed by the Board of Supervisors as Maricopa County Assessor over 10 other GOP applicants. He is restoring trust and accountability to the office, eliminating waste and saving taxpayers money. Take time to read his priorities and accomplishments.

Conservative Eddie Cook, the recipient of a national award for improving efficiencies, is being challenged by lawyer Rodney Glassman, a lifelong Democrat operative who opportunistically switched party affiliation, hoping to launch a higher level career from this post. He has run for and applied for appointment to numerous positions as success eluded him.

Glassman has an unlikely background for someone seeking political office as a Republican and even embracing the term “conservative.” He worked as a D.C. staffer for radical leftist Congressman Raul Grijalva. He also ran for the U.S. Senate from Arizona as a Democrat. Additionally, Rodney Glassman was a candidate for state chairman of the Arizona Democrat Party, hoping to guide the statewide strategy for defeating Republicans. This post was one in a long string of offices he sought and lost. After magically recasting himself in 2018 he ran as a Republican for the Arizona Corporation Commission and lost again, just as he did as a Democrat carrying the UFCW Union endorsement.

Integrity is not on Glassman’s radar. He hosted a fundraiser for a member of the Board of Supervisors who would be tasked with selecting Paul Peterson’s replacement. The invitation can be seen here.

A genuine Republican, Eddie Cook continues to amass support and has won the endorsement of Arizona Congressman and former State Senate President Andy Biggs, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus.

This is an important election. It’s crucial to retain Eddie Cook as Assessor.  Don’t  be conned by the biggest signs placed by wealthy political changeling Rodney Glassman, desperate for a win, whose intent is to buy his way into office…any office.


Walter Williams details the “greatness of America,” exposes Dem duplicity

June 28, 2020

Amid the contemptible violence being perpetrated in the name of the now martyred career criminal George Floyd, a voice of reason emerges. Walter Williams’ recent column,Insults to Black History,“ will enlighten all who read it. 

Dr. Williams’ final paragraph in the column should whet your appetite for reading it in its entirety:

 “Government should do its job of protecting constitutional rights. After that, black people should be simply left alone as opposed to being smothered by the paternalism inspired by white guilt. On that note, I just cannot resist the temptation to refer readers to my “Proclamation of Amnesty and Pardon,” which grants Americans of European ancestry amnesty and pardon for their own grievances and those of their forebears against my people so that they stop feeling guilty and stop acting like fools in their relationship with Americans of African ancestry.”


Are you a Trump supporter still using Facebook?

June 24, 2020

Arizonans were fortunate to have President Trump make two stops in our state on Tuesday.  He addressed a capacity crowd of Students for Trump at the 3,000 seat Dream City Church. The Phoenix event was organized by Turning Point USA/Action, a group chaired by conservative activist Charlie Kirk.

The president was accompanied at the event by Gov. Doug Ducey; Sen. Martha McSally; U.S. Reps. Andy Biggs; Paul Gosar; Debbie Lesko; David Schweikert; State Treasurer Kimberly Yee; AZ Senate President Karen Fann; House Speaker Rusty Bowers; AZ GOP Chair Kelli Ward, and numerous other local and national political leaders, including Florida U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, a youthful conservative rising star.

Watch the #GlobalNews live stream of the Students for Trump event here.

Earlier on the president’s itinerary was a visit to Yuma to inspect the completion of the 200th mile of our border wall construction, with Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf.

Accompanying the uplifting news is this harsh reality check:

REVEALED: Facebook Oversight Board – Responsible For Reviewing Censorship – Is 95% Anti-Trump AND Three Quarters Are Non-U.S. Citizens.

This is imperative reading for Trump supporters and all freedom loving Americans. The opening begins with this shocker: Facebook oversight’s board – a new body that can overrule founder Mark Zuckerberg – is drastically, disproportionately stacked with foreign, left-wing activists including individuals on the payroll of Socialist mega-donor George Soros, a globalist who abhors national boundaries, opting instead for a nightmarish one-world government.

The recently constituted board is comprised of activists who’ve compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler and former Obama officials who have hailed efforts to remove President Trump from Twitter as “awesome.

Conservatives should never support radical leftist Zuckerberg, who at age 36, and with an estimated $88 billion is already the second wealthiest man (next to Jeff Bezos) on the planet. The main lame excuse is, “My grandkids (or kids) use Facebook for family communication.” This is your opportunity to educate them on the harsh realities of standing up for what’s right. Tell them you’ll have to be reached by email or text. Even better, a real interactive phone call, or…gasp…a letter. Don’t be above bribery. Let them know for every letter they send, you’ll reply with another, newsy note containing some money. Don’t let your family trap you onto Facebook. Stick to your principles. Remind them that you have a valid voice since they wouldn’t be here without you. Each time you talk, share a short but interesting bit of family history. Make the calls fun, newsy and show them that life is more than wordless communication on their hand-held devices, while making a leftist billionaire richer by the day.


Best wishes for a Happy Father’s Day

Fathers take our hands and give us their hearts

With affection and appreciation to all of the Fathers, Dads, Papas and Grandpas who have guided us along the way.

 

As we take the day off to celebrate Father’s Day, we’re gifting our readers with an illuminating column, “BLM at War with America,” by self-described “Unhyphenated American.” Lloyd Marcus. It’s pertinent to these turbulent times.

Exposing the farce of “systematic racism”

June 10, 2020

This fact-filled article, “Mass Police Brutality Isn’t the True Plight of Black Americans,” by Dr. Walter E. Williams, a black professor of economics at George Mason University, is guaranteed to make us smarter — though not a match for Dr. Williams, as you‘ll see when you read his extraordinary bio.

He notes the significant political power black Americans currently have at all levels of government. He also details the correlation between abysmal educational scores in Democrat-controlled cities — despite their large, and growing, school budgets. Williams zones in on the violent crime levels in cities run by Democrats, naming the cities.

Take a few minutes to acquaint yourself with the facts. You’ll be glad you did.


Black AZ legislator speaking truth about Floyd faces condemnation

June 7, 2020

As leftist groups have elevated George Floyd to sainthood status since his suffocation death by a Minneapolis police officer who held a knee to his neck, it has become unacceptable to speak the truth about this less than sterling man. No one debates the fact that his death in the street captured on video was horrific. The officer who committed the act is facing Second Degree murder charges and three others are also in jail.  All have been fired.

Though he did not deserve to die in the manner he did, Floyd was far from a paragon of virtue. Due to the fact that he was black and killed by a white police officer, proportionality has been lost and violent national riots ensued. That the police were initially called based on the allegation that Floyd attempted to pass a counterfeit bill in a store has faded into oblivion, as has the fact that his autopsy revealed illicit drugs in his system and he has a documented criminal past, as the New York Post reports. But like John McCain, Floyd has been eulogized at funerals in three different states, which is apparently a new norm.

State Rep. Walter Blackman, (LD-6) a self-identified Constitutional Conservative with an outstanding military background is the first black Republican elected in the state of Arizona, making him not only an anomaly, but also suspect.  Appearing on KFYI 550 AM radio talk show, The Conservative Circus,” hosted by James T. Harris, Blackman boldly denounced the Black Lives Matter organization, saying it had been infiltrated by Antifa hoodlums, emphatically adding “I do not support George Floyd and I refuse to see him as a martyr. But I hope his family receives justice.”

 He described Black Lives Matter as an “ideology that goes against the very concepts and precepts of our principles in the United States.”

“They started out one way, and they were about helping the community and pulling themselves up,” he said. “Today, they have splinter organizations that have moved away from the original message that have been infiltrated by antifa … and the message is not the same as it was.”

In response to Rep. Blackman’s honesty, the far-left ACLU led the chorus against him, preposterously saying it would “not affiliate with someone who does not share our values of uplifting marginalized communities and rooting out racism.”

The much more pertinent fact is that Rep. Walter Blackman shares the values of the constituents he so ably represents. Race has nothing to do with it. 


Pres. Trump vows to protect Americans, is blasted by left

June 2, 2020

“America is founded upon the rule of law. It is the foundation of our prosperity, our freedom, and our very way of life”

In this statement given from the White House Rose Garden Monday evening, President Trump addresses the coordinated riots and lawlessness that have overtaken American cities in recent days. Vowing to mobilize civilian and military resources to quell the criminality that has decimated countless cities, his words echo his dedication to this country and his plan of action to restore safety and civility to our nation that has been gripped by the Coronavirus pandemic and now by “coordinated professional anarchists, violent mobs, arsonists, looters, criminals, rioters, Antifa, and others.”

Following his remarks, Pres. Trump, joined by a few White House officials, walked to nearby historic St. John’s Episcopal Church, which rioters attempted to burn down the preceding night.  Even this calming action was met with blistering contempt by Democrats House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY). The pair issued a joint statement, reading in part, “the nation needs real leadership” during this challenging time, adding, “The President’s continued fanning of the flames of discord, bigotry and violence is cowardly, weak and dangerous.”

Rev. Mariann Budde, the far-left bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, D.C. claimed to be “outraged.” Budde, not a neutral player, assumed the leadership post at the church in 2011, and was quoted as saying: “I want to build up the liberal church again so we can be a legitimate conversation partner in the public arena.”  Last year she blasted what she called Trump’s “radicalized rhetoric.”

Try to imagine Pelosi, Schumer or Budde making these same irrational statements if Barack Obama was still in the White House and walked to a nearby church under identical circumstances. You can’t, since such a scenario would never have taken place.

The left has never gotten over his stunning 2016 victory, and are willing to destroy our nation to advance their agenda. 

 


Amid widespread domestic terrorism, AZ Gov. Ducey activates Nat’l Guard

June 1, 2020

Sunday night, following Gov. Ducey’s issuance of a State of Emergency declaration, hundreds of criminal looters and defilers took aim at Scottsdale Fashion Square mall and surrounding businesses including the Mercedes-Benz dealership. Their wanton destruction was estimated in “millions of dollars”

In a rare Sunday announcement, (Read it here) Gov. Doug Ducey declared a State of Emergency including activating the National Guard and issuing a week-long statewide, limited curfew from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.

The overriding question as violent demonstrations, arson and looting arise with contrived spontaneity in Arizona, states across the country and have now erupted in our nation’s capitol, is who is organizing them? The obvious intent is to destabilize our social structure, coupled with respect for authority and law, which bind our enviable, constitutionally-based society.

The disingenuous headline in Sunday’s edition of the radically-left local newspaper was, “Anger and Anguish.” The question of whose anguish and anger is made all too clear with the accompanying front page article, headlined, “Ariz. governor’s remarks focus on ‘rule of law’ not community pain.” 

It begins by disparaging Republican governors “across the country,” while specifically targeting Republican Gov. Ducey for being forcefully outspoken in his denunciation of criminality committed by what the newspaper terms “marginalized persons.”  The full quote from a Tucson-based ‘Black Lives Matter’ advocate is, “I think the governor has always made it clear that he values law and order over the everyday person, specifically marginalized people — “black people, incarcerated people,” she stated.

The rest of us can only hope so.


AZ Republic elevates US Rep. Andy Biggs to US Senate

May 27, 2020

Those inattentive folks at the seriously failing Arizona Republic newspaper, have problems that far surpass the Hillary-endorsing newspaper’s out-of-step leftist bent. As a case in point, Tuesday‘s hard-copy edition ran an opinion piece that was an attention grabber.

Topping a rational “Your Turn” column was this headline, “The US can’t afford to stay closed.” The co-authors are identified under their photos as, “Sens. Rand Paul and Andy Biggs.”

Make no mistake. Conservative Andy Biggs is definitely someone we’d be happy to see in the U.S. Senate. However, the former Arizona State Senate president is currently serving his second term representing Arizona’s Congressional District 5 residents in the U.S. House of Representatives. That fact obviously missed the attention of the careless hacks still employed at the newspaper in the wake of mass layoffs, pay cuts and furloughs.

Blithely undisturbed by the daily’s daily flubs, exemplified by this monumental list of Corrections and Clarifications, is the inanely grinning executive editor Greg Burton — except when comparing his remaining staff tocrackpots and criminals.” He puts on a happy face to thank the dwindling number of readers overpaying for being fed leftist slop as he prizes newsroom diversity above factual reporting while promising more of the same to subscribers.

What an inducement!
