Pervert dem megadonor Ed Buck guilty of 9 felonies

July 30, 2021

Conviction of far-left darling of the hypocritical Arizona Republic unworthy of mention on its pages

Earlier this week, a Los Angeles federal jury, deliberating only four hours following a two-week trial, convicted wealthy democrat donor Ed Buck on charges that he injected indigent gay men with methamphetamine in exchange for sex, leading to two deaths and other overdoses, in the mattress-lined living room what was described as his Hollywood “house of horrors.” Court documents portray Buck as a “violent, dangerous sexual predator, who uses the bait of drugs, money, and shelter to lure men struggling with addiction and homelessness into his home, where he manipulates them into participating in his sexual fetishes.”

Buck, 66, was found guilty of nine felony counts including providing and injecting the drugs that led to the overdose deaths of Gemmel Moore, 26, and Timothy Dean, 55. A sentencing date has not yet been announced.

Arizonans will remember Buck (a name he altered from Buckmelter), as detailed in this 2019 post titled. “Deviant Dem megadonor Ed Buck finally arrested after 3rd man overdoses & Update.” Buck’s nefarious anti-Republican career took root in Phoenix, where he received ongoing praise and celebratory status in the local newspaper for being the driving force to take down newly elected Gov. Evan Mecham prior to his January 5, 1987 inauguration to his contrived impeachment conviction on April 4, 1988. The far left Arizona Republic cheered on Buck’s efforts against the former state senator, decorated World War II fighter pilot and POW, and a successful businessman. Evan Mecham was a devoted husband, father of seven, and active in his church, but he was a political conservative making him deserving of the wrath of the radical local newspaper, which daily vomited its multi-pronged, anti-conservative, vicious spew on him.

Governor Mecham was Donald Trump decades before President Donald Trump appeared on the political horizon.

Ed Buck lavished campaign donations on prominent state and federal (be sure to read the entire lists). Democrat candidates — Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Adam Schiff, were among the recipients of Buck’s generosity. Congressman Schiff, who represented the district where Buck lived was known to visit his home.

Buck has given more than $500,000 to a wide array of democrat groups and candidates, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (who Biden just nominated as the U.S. Ambassador to India), Gov. Gavin Newsom (currently facing a recall election) and L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey — obviously attempting to curry favor with powerful office holders who could influence his fate. His scheme worked. While in office, Lacey twice refused to prosecute Buck.

The DCCC reportedly received at least $5,000 from Buck. AZ Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s PAC, Getting Stuff Done, (GSD-PAC) was a recipient of Buck’s generosity, separate from his donations to her campaign, which she ultimately returned.

Those on the long list of leftists who willingly accepted Buck’s generosity remain mute, as does the duplicitous Arizona Republic, which couldn’t praise him enough when he led the impeachment against conservative Republican Gov. Evan Mecham. Now Buck’s conviction is unworthy of mention.

SCOTUS upholds Arizona’s voting laws

July 2, 2021

As the U.S. Supreme Court protects ballot integrity, the reliably leftwing local newspaper intentionally mischaracterizes the ruling as “voting restrictions disproportionately affecting minority voters”

The U.S. Supreme Court (photos and professional bios) on Thursday upheld Arizona’s rational election integrity laws. In a 6-3 ruling, the justices defended states’ abilities to administer elections and pass laws to protect the results.

This is excerpted from the Arizona Attorney General’s press release:

“The Democratic National Committee (DNC) challenged Arizona’s regulation of ballot-harvesting and limitation on out-of-precinct voting in 2016. The DNC erroneously claimed the measures violated the Voting Rights Act (VRA) and that the ballot-harvesting law was enacted with discriminatory intent.  The U.S. District Court of Arizona rejected the DNC’s challenges after a full trial, but a majority of judges on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed those findings to invalidate Arizona’s laws.

Today, the justices strongly refuted the DNC’s claims stating, “…neither Arizona’s out-of-precinct rule nor its ballot-collection law violates §2 of the VRA.” SCOTUS further concluded: “Under our form of government, legislators have a duty to exercise their judgment and to represent their constituents. It is insulting to suggest that they are mere dupes or tools.

The case, Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee has broad implications for the rest of the country. If the SCOTUS had accepted the logic of the DNC, every voter integrity law in the country would be in jeopardy if it created any disparity between minority and non-minority voters.

Approximately twenty states have some regulation of ballot harvesting. Ballot harvesting occurs when third-parties or political operatives go door-to-door and collect voters’ ballots. There are exceptions in Arizona’s law for family, caregivers, mail carriers, and election officials.

Additionally, the majority of states require ballots to be cast in the correct precinct. Requiring voters to vote in their assigned precinct furthers important state interests in administering the election free from fraud and ensuring voters get a ballot with the correct local races.”

Justice Elena Kagan wrote the dissent.


Georgia follows Maricopa County’s ballot audit as MC Attorney bows to supervisors

May 22, 2021

Those who rely on the leftward skewed local news for information, are likely to believe supporters of the recount of the 2020 General Election ballots cast in Maricopa County were anomalous, manic Trump supporters with too much time on their hands. 

Now we find out we are not alone. “Republican Daily headlines its report, “Georgia Judge Calls For Emergency Audit After Suspicious Discrepancies Found.” The Atlanta Journal-Constitution flunks the media bias test as it deceptively concealed detrimental pertinent information on democrat senatorial candidate Raphael Warnock challenging incumbent Georgia Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler in the run-off race, as seen here. Warnock won, tipping the U.S. Senate balance.

On Friday, Henry County, Georgia Chief Judge Brian J. Amero called for the motion to unseal ballots after suspicious irregularities were found.

During a hearing, VoterGA.org lawyers “described large discrepancies (21%) between the number of ballot batches reported by the Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger who certified the election, and the number of ballot batches actually provided by court-ordered access in the previous April hearing in the case,” according to CD Media.

The most recent absurdity is this hostile and accusatory 4-page Litigation Hold and Preservative Notice’ letter* sent to Senate President Karen Fann, threatening legal action against the AZ Senate audit team. It was issued by waffling Republicrat Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel on behalf of her “clients” Maricopa County, the AZ Board of Supervisors, and Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer. The maneuver appears to be an attempt to facilitate tarnishing the reputation of the audit to the citizens of Maricopa County, whose intelligence she vastly underestimates.

When former Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery was appointed to the Arizona Supreme Court by Gov. Doug Ducey in Sept. 2019, he was replaced by Allister Adel by the same Board of Supervisors she is now giving special treatment.

Is AZ AG Brnovich gearing into campaign mode?

May 8, 2021

Unmistakably sounding like a candidate, Arizona’s term-limited Attorney General Mark Brnovich emphatically stated in this May 7, 2021 press release, “It is illegal and unconscionable for the federal government to force the release of dangerous criminals into Arizona communities when they are required to be deported by statute. Upholding the rule of law and preserving public safety must always come before any political or special interest group agendas.”

In a border state bearing the brunt of Joe Biden’s politically motivated, lenient policies, this is a winning issue. Biden appointed VP Kamala Harris to head up the border crisis investigation on March 24, but she has yet to visit the southern border and laughingly dismisses the topic  (video) when questioned by a reporter.

Brnovich has not been complacent regarding Biden’s border leniency. On February 3, 2021, within a month of Biden’s inauguration, AG Brnovich filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and federal officials over its new administration’s flagrant policy to halt nearly all deportations for 100 days. The Attorney General’s Office, alleging the new policy violates federal law and Arizona’s existing agreement with DHS requested a ruling from the U.S. District Court in Arizona. Federal Judge Susan Bolton denied the request, as reported by the Arizona Mirror.

With a likely under-reported*171,000 illegal aliens having surged through our sovereign Southwest border in March — including “more than 18,800 unaccompanied minors” and “more than 53,000” adults traveling with children — the crisis is explosive.

Despite his actions Brnovich has some fence mending to do with the Trump-supporting Republican base. He stepped out early, before the presidential ballot count was completed, telling Fox Business host Neil Cavuto, “It does appear that Joe Biden will win Arizona, there is no evidence, there are no facts that would lead anyone to believe that the election results will change.” At that point the vote was 49.9% for President Trump and 49.39% for Joe Biden.

There were sufficient questions raised by the slim margin that a ballot recount is currently taking place in Maricopa County, the nation’s fourth most populous county

* It is the leftist Washington Post, after all.


Maricopa County 2020 presidential ballot audit: Who do you believe?

April 25, 2021

Gateway Pundit ‘s Jim Hoft, who has previously scooped the local, Trump-hating, Arizona Republic newspaper on issues relating to the ballot recount, headlines his report, “BREAKING – IT’S HAPPENING! Arizona Election Workers are Running Ultra-Violet Ballot Testing on Maricopa Ballots (VIDEO).”

The newspaper topped its biased coverage with this falsified header: “Arizona Senate audit gets off to shaky start, with rules finalized on the fly.” 

This petulant coverage, filled with quotes from democrat operatives, a lawyer representing the democrat party who referred to the ballot auditors as “rogue actors,” and the audit itself as a “so-called audit,” is unworthy of a link. County Supervisor Steve Gallardo, the lone democrat on the five-member board busied himself filing a last-minute lawsuit in Maricopa County Superior Court Thursday night attempting to stop the audit.

The unnamed judge, possessing Solomon-like wisdom, issued an injunction stopping the audit until Monday, with the stipulation that the democrat party post a $1 million bond to cover the potential costs of the delay. The outfoxed dems conceded Friday they wouldn’t/couldn’t be coughing up that kind of cash, and the recount at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum proceeded as scheduled.

The audit, televised by nine separate cameras, can be viewed at AZAudit.org

To illustrate the democrat party’s disconnect with reality, County Chair, Raquel Teran issued a statement that said in part, “We are calling on Governor Doug Ducey and Attorney General Mark Brnovich to put an end to this madness and protect our election systems from conspiracy theorists.”

Ms. Teran has obviously forgotten that neither the Arizona Governor nor Attorney General take their marching orders from the democrat party. They are both Republicans.

Hostile takeover of SCOTUS advanced by democrats

April 16, 2021

Democrats are like spoiled children, proficient at whining, foot stomping and petulantly claiming they are  getting the short end of the stick. This is especially true when the “stick” in question happens to be the U.S. Supreme Court.

It is the president’s prerogative to nominate justices as vacancies occur.  President Trump had three such opportunities during his term, filling seats on the high court with Brett Kavanaugh (replacing Justice Anthony Kennedy), Neil Gorsuch (replacing Justice Antonin Scalia) and Amy Coney Barrett (replacing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg).

The likelihood of repeating that feat is slim to none for Pres. Joe Biden, who is obviously in failing health and unlikely to serve out his full term.

Therein lies the quandary. The new administration wants to put its leftist mark on the court. That ideology was epitomized by Justice Thurgood Marshall who summed up his judicial philosophy with these words: “You do what you think is right and let the law catch up.” 

Conservative justices, often described as “originalists,” or “constitutionalists” see the document as not open to wide interpretation, preferring to follow the law as written. A constructionist approach not only aligns with the founders’ vision for America, but it also is the best line of defense against an out-of-control government that deprives its citizens of their freedoms. The Constitution delegated the authority to make law to the legislature, not to judges.

It is with these lines of demarcation that Americans need to pay attention to the democrat’s preparations — as announced in this White House press release — for a hostile takeover of the U.S. Supreme Court by expanding the number of justices from nine to thirteen.

On February 5, 1937, democrat Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt sent shockwaves through the nation by initiating a plot to expand the Supreme Court, known as “packing the court,” to insure his leftist agenda would easily be implemented. FDR’s scheme was short-lived, defeated by Roosevelt’s own party members. The senate judiciary committee was clear in its assessment, writing, “It is a measure which should be so emphatically rejected that its parallel will never again be presented to the free representatives of the free people of America.”

Today’s democrats are both ignorant of precedent and far less noble. 

The overreach is being pushed by Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-MA); House Judiciary Chair, Jerrold Nadler (D-NY); U.S. Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY); and U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) — who deceptively defended the legislation’s introduction as necessary to start debate on the issue. Ramrodding is not akin to debate.

“Ultimately, we have to repeal the filibuster. And then we can move this legislation,” Markey said. “Clearly, we would want Republicans to vote with us, but if they are not willing to participate in that effort,” he slyly added, “then we can still do this on a basis of 51 votes.”

Jones, who stated Biden is “doing a tremendous job,” also said, “There is no reason to work with’ the GOP right now.”

The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13, from the current 9 which has been the case for 152 years. Their intent is to flip the ideological balance of the 9-member court from a 6-3 conservative majority to a 7-6 leftist majority.

Though the consequences of this scheme are enormous, as a 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden, in an exchange with a reporter covered by the Daily Wire, said voters “don’t deserve” to know his view on this crucial issue. But as a senator in 1983, Biden held a far different perspective, calling packing the court, “a bonehead idea.”


AZ AG Brnovich in full blown campaign mode

April 14, 2021

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who has taken refuge behind a scruffy Belushi-like beard and moustache, has audaciously signaled he is in full blown campaign mode via a lengthy email detailing his accomplishments. Titled “The General’s Report, ” it begins with a clichéd reference to Spring:

“With April now upon us, it’s time to reflect on the Spring season and it’s classic themes of rejuvenation and renewal.”

Reading between the lines, term limited in 2022, he is moving on, omitting the other “R’ word “reinventing.”

From there he uses his office to blatantly recount his accomplishments, as he employs the royal “we,” while veering into unbridled self promotion in a lengthy email sent to Republicans. How he gained access to the list is anyone’s guess, but recipients are less than enthralled with having a public official inappropriately using his office as a free campaign website. Over a dozen and a half links of the office’s “accomplishments” and links to expansive coverage are an overreach that doesn’t pass the smell test. As a lawyer married to a U.S. District Judge, better judgment should have been used. Although Susan Brnovich was nominated to the federal bench by President Trump, she was initially appointed to the Maricopa County Superior Court by none other than far-left partisan Gov. Janet Napolitano, who rarely engaged in cross party appointments.

In an ingratiating mode, A.G. Mark Brnovich signs his email using the words, “With gratitude.” The obvious takeaway is Brnovich is signaling in advance his gratitude for your vote and a campaign donation…though he doesn’t indicate what office he’s eyeing. From his current perch the possibilities are whittled down to a few.


Biden’s handlers pick politically correct Fed. Judges

March 30, 2021

Gender, ethnicity, religion, advance as top qualifiers for the federal bench

Frail Joe Biden’s handlers have announced the administration’s first slate of 11 federal judicial nominations to fill federal circuit and district court vacancies. Legal qualifications are incidental, though the list referred to in a statement as “groundbreaking“ and “trailblazing,” focused on their “broad diversity of background experience and perspective.”

 Nine of the nominees are women. Three are identified as black, others as a “Muslim American and an Asian American and Pacific Islander.”

The black women nominated for federal circuit court vacancies include Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, Tiffany Cunningham for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and Candace Jackson-Akiwumi for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

Regina Rodriguez has been nominated for the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado.

Firsts matter.  Zahid N. Quraishi, a New Jersey magistrate judge, would be the nation’s first Muslim American of Pakistani heritage to serve on a federal district court. Judge Florence Pan would be the first Asian-American judge to serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Judge Rupa Ranga Puttagunta, an East Indian-American, appointed by D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser as an Administrative Judge for the D.C. Rental Housing Commission is also on the PC list. 


Fed. Judge accuses media of “one-party control of the press…

March 21, 2021

….which poses a threat to a “viable democracy.”

In the course of his partial dissent in a libel case, D.C. Circuit Court Judge Laurence Silberman issued a scorching rebuke of the news media writing:

 “Although the bias against the Republican Party — not just controversial individuals — is rather shocking today, this is not new; it is a long-term, secular trend going back at least to the ’70s,” Silberman opined. “Two of the three most influential papers (at least historically), The New York Times and The Washington Post, are virtually Democratic Party broadsheets. And the news section of The Wall Street Journal leans in the same direction. The orientation of these three papers is followed by The Associated Press and most large papers across the country (such as the Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, and Boston Globe). Nearly all television — network and cable — is a Democratic Party trumpet. Even the government-supported National Public Radio follows along.”

The judge didn’t include the radically left-wing Arizona Republic by name, but his stinging reproach couldn’t individually name every newspaper worthy of being declared an arm of the democrat party. The Republic relegated its coverage of Judge Silberman’s statement to the single USA Today page, devoting one column and all of eight sentences to the judge’s wisdom.

Judge Silberman cited Fox News, The New York Post and The Wall Street Journal opinion and editorial pages as the “few notable exceptions to Democratic Party ideological control.”

You’ll be rubbing your eyes thinking you misread the remarkable indictment, but the facts are substantiated by Fox News reporter Joseph A. Wulfsohn’s article,Federal judge warns ‘dangerous’ media has ‘very close to one-party control’ in blistering libel case dissent.

It’s definitely worth your time to read this all too rare condemnation of the leftist media.

Judge Silberman was appointed to the federal bench in October 1985 by President Ronald Reagan and took senior status on November 1, 2000. On June 11, 2008, President George W. Bush awarded Silberman the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Americans are fortunate to have senior status Judge Silberman seated on this case. No longer concerned with political correctness, he brilliantly used this opportunity to amplify the truth.
