Leftist New Zealand PM irrationally blames guns for massacre

March 18, 2019

Gun restrictions are coming to low crime New Zealand

Following the horrific massacre killing at least 50 people and wounding another 50 in terror attacks targeting two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, the government has responded with exactly the wrong message. In this Guardian article, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is gushingly and favorably compared to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes.

PM Jacinda Ardern — now wearing a wearing hijab, in a sign of solidarity — has announced New Zealand’s government will reform the country’s gun laws in the wake of last Friday’s carnage. The hate-based slaughter of Islamic worshippers in was perpetrated by 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant, an Australian, who is a self-described white supremacist. He is in police custody.

Speaking after her weekly cabinet meeting, PM Ardern stated that government ministers had agreed “in principle” to reform gun laws. “Within 10 days of this horrific act of terrorism we will have announced reforms which will, I believe, make our community safer,” she said.

How much safer?  According the New Zealand police, there were 69 total murders with a firearm between Jan.1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2017 in the entire nation.

Obviously New Zealand is reeling from the unspeakable assault perpetrated by a vicious criminal. Yet vowing to enact tighter gun laws is not the answer. Had some of the people in the mosques been armed, they would have been able to respond to the murderous rampage. Gun restrictions only impact the law abiding. Those intent on evil will always find a way to carry it out. We’ve already witnessed vicious knifings and intentional vehicular homicides perpetrated in Europe. The United Kingdom has some of the toughest gun control laws in the world.

The U.K.’s Sun newspaper in an article headlined, “Endless Knife Crime,” reported the total number of attacks involving a knife or bladed instrument recorded in 2018 rose 16 percent to 40,147, a seven-year-high.

London’s Telegraph News covered the lengthy series of intentional vehicular homicides in this report headlined, “Europe from Westminster to Nice: Vehicle rampage attacks in UK and Europe.” The gruesome list culminated with the July 14, 2016 Bastille Day slaughter in which 87 celebrants, including families with children, were killed and 458 were injured near the seafront of Nice, France, when a lorry was intentionally driven into the crowd. No gun was used to perpetrate this mass slaughter.

Watch this interview with Second Amendment attorney Stephen Halbrook, as he explains the current generous local gun laws in New Zealand, which is a peaceable society.

Why is ICE taking illegals to Phx. Greyhound station?

February 24, 2019

President Trump undermined by Dems who abhor building a wall and agents providing illegals free travel within U.S.

The local newspaper reports that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents dropped off groups of illegal aliens at a Phoenix Greyhound bus station Saturday afternoon. Numerous buses arrived to pick up the illegals, who crossed our sovereign border from Mexico.

The report further states that members of a local church set up tables with soup, muffins and an assortment of fruit near the Buckeye Road station to feed the illegal aliens while “mapping out warm places they can stay.”

It’s a safe bet none of the good church folks were bringing any of the illegals back to their own homes.

A spokesperson for ICE confirmed the agency dropped the illegal invaders at the bus station, saying the organizations it normally works with couldn’t accommodate them.

Could it be that they’ve had their fill?

Obviously proud of aiding and abetting the criminal invasion of our country, the church members, described in the news report as “humanitarians,” requested the newspaper’s reporters not use their names. Many illegals are previously deported felons whose crimes included homicides, sexual assaults and drug trafficking.

If the overuse of the terms illegals or illegal aliens stand out as odd, we are intentionally emulating the newspaper’s repeated use of the word “migrants.” We still came up short.

In 2014, under a policy sanctioned by President Obama and his Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, ICE officials acknowledged, “Scores of undocumented immigrants from Central America were released at Greyhound bus stations in Tucson and Phoenix,” over several days, after they were flown to Arizona from south Texas. Not only did they fan out across the United States, avoiding detection, other illegals have been encouraged by the ease of which they were able to move freely without fear of being apprehended — after getting an assist from the very agency that is charged with deporting them back to their countries of origin.

Nineteen states and the territory of Puerto Rico have offices listed on ICE’s website. Some states have multiple offices. Presumably they are all staffed. We are paying their salaries and benefits, while the invasion continues unabated, with a warm assist from ICE officials, as they continue to recruit new agents.

What’s going on?


Smollett’s bogus “hate crime” exposed; No MAGA component & Update

February 22, 2019

By now we’re all past the point of nausea with the ongoing saga of Jussie Smollett, a character most of us had never heard of before he staged his racially based charade of being the victim of a hate crime —- perpetrated by, you guessed it — two guys wearing MAGA caps.  They tied him up, beat him, poured bleach on him, put a loose noose around his neck, for ultimate effect and derided him with racial and homophobic slurs. Smollett was victimized because he is black and homosexual. Leftist celebrities and politicians raced to his side, using the incident to castigate Trump supporters.

Except no such crime occurred. 

Jussie Smollett concocted the bizarre hoax to bring attention to himself with the ultimate goal of boosting his salary in the televised series in which he co-starred. Smollett was paid a paltry $65,000 per episode for his role in the “Empire.”  There are 18 episodes per season. No wonder he was dissatisfied.

Smollett, 36, initially sent a threatening note to himself. When that didn’t do the trick, he hired two Nigerian brothers for $3,500 to stage the attack.

Obviously, Smollett doesn’t watch ‘Forensic Files,’ or he would have known his scheme would unravel and he’d be found out. Police work is exemplary in the 21st century.

Smollett was arrested and released Thursday after posting $100,000 bond. If convicted of the Class 4 Felony, he faces up to three years in prison for his role in this hoax, finally gaining more notoriety then he did for his role in the program, which in all likelihood is his career finale.

Read the full bond proffer here.

The best part of this pathetic charade in which he purposely blamed the fake assault on supporters of President Trump, was this stellar press conference featuring Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. And whaddaya know? it’s been blasted by Smollett’s defense attorneys.

Grand Jury indicts Smollett on 16 counts

A Chicago Grand Jury has indicted “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett on 16 counts of disorderly conduct and lying to police about being the victim of a racist and anti-gay attack.  When he story became suspicious, His character was written out of upcoming episodes.

Following his false reporting of the crime, extensive investigations of video footage of the purported crime scene showed no attack occurred.

Two brothers Smollett paid $3500 to stage the hoax came forward with evidence that Smollett was angry because he was not being paid what he thought his talents were worth. He might be able to read lines, but he has major trouble with staging. He described the non-existent attackers as wearing MAGA hats and other Trump gear, and yelling racist and anti-gay slurs at him

If found guilty, each charge carries a sentence that could range from probation to four years.


AZ child pornographer given 60 year sentence

February 19, 2019

Missing information: Citizenship status of Josue Eduardo Cota

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona is to be commended for its part in the dual nation investigation leading to its successful prosecution and conviction of this perverted monster, though a key piece of information is missing. What is his immigration status?

Josue Eduardo Cota, 33, a Douglas, Arizona resident and former corrections officer, has pleaded guilty to eight counts of production of child pornography and has been sentenced to 60 years in a case that began with a Canadian investigation. The U.S. investigation in this case was conducted by the Douglas Office Homeland Security Investigation team.

The fact that Douglas is a border town in Cochise County, abutting Mexico, makes Cota’s status relevant. According to the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau report, over 73 percent of residents identified as Hispanic or Latino. Over 65% speak a language other than English in their home. Between 2013 and 2017, a quarter of the population identified as foreign born and 31.9% live in poverty, with a per capita income in the past 12 months (in 2017 dollars) of $15,294. This information leads to the conclusion that a high rate of illegal aliens reside in Douglas. Is Josue Eduardo Cota one of them?

Cota is pictured in this report in the Douglas Dispatch.

The U. S. Department of Justice’s media release can be read here. All involved in apprehending, prosecuting and gaining a conviction of this despicable pervert who sexually exploited young children deserve our gratitude.


Crime is bad but appropriate punishment is worse

February 17, 2019

The hoax of criminal justice reform

A recently released poll by FWD.us purports to show Arizona voters across the political spectrum support “bold reforms” to the state’s criminal justice system.

The left-wing group refers to a “prison crisis,” rather than accurately calling it a crime crisis.

Public Opinion Strategies which conducted the survey ludicrously concluded only one percent of Arizonans want to spend additional tax dollars on jails and prisons. The obvious conclusion, according to the pollsters, is 99 percent of Arizonans prefer living among violent criminals.

Additionally, the survey farcically claims support for less prosecution of crimes cuts across political party affiliations and demographic groups, with majority support supposedly among victims of crime. The far left group declares its pro-criminal efforts have “bi-partisan” support, the conveniently used buzz word providing cover to radical agendas.

In 2018 FWD.us President Todd Schulte opposed California bill SB10, which he preposterously referred to as bringing “extraordinary harm caused by unnecessary pretrial jailing” and the “requiring of bail.” Bail ensures bondable criminals don’t flee prior to trial. Pretrial incarceration keeps dangerous offenders off the streets.

Among the ill-conceived bills FWD.us’ Arizona proponents have introduced this state legislative session are HB 2245 (Prime Sponsor: Rep. Tony Riverio, LD-21) which allows prisoners to cut an additional 25% percent from their sentences for good behavior and participation in rehabilitation programs, both of which are expected of criminal inmates and HB 2362 (Prime Sponsor: Rep. Ben Toma, LD-22). This bill allows individual judges to determine the punishment if, in his or her opinion, the mandatory minimum sentence is not justified based on “the crime and individual” — ignoring the law and making criminal defendants’ fate a crap shoot depending on the luck of the judicial draw.

FWD.us, is heavily funded to the tune of $100’s of millions by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Open Society Foundation founder George Soros, who has been working behind the scenes to overhaul the U.S. Justice system in his extreme leftist image.

The liberal billionaires lead a host of moneyed, like-thinkers who embrace open borders, spew leftist rhetoric and hire numerous lobbying groups to press their issues with city and state governments and congress. Illegal alien profiteers at the Chambers of Commerce whose members seek cheap, illegal labor are also in the tank for open borders, which is why they so disdain President Donald Trump and his commitment to build a border wall.

These people put criminals and illegal aliens above the safety and security of American citizens.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s lobbying operation alone spent nearly $95 million last year, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. What do you think would be worth that much money and effort?


Cindy McCain outed as a human trafficking liar & Update

February 7, 2019

Claim of witnessing human trafficking incident disputed by Phoenix Police

Arizonans, and the nation, were well aware of the duplicity and arrogance of John McCain, a man who was raised in the shadows of brave military men. Both his father and his grandfather were admirals in the U. S. Navy.  As John Sidney McCain, III, he carried their names and had a big legacy to fill. Instead he graduated at the bottom of his Naval Academy class, was a renown womanizer and crashed three jets. When he was shot down, captured and imprisoned during the Vietnam War, his embellished saga was disputed by others on congressional committees along with former POWs. After returning as a hero, he ditched his wife who waited patiently for his return to marry the much younger rodeo queen and Anheuser-Busch beer heiress Cindy Lou Hensley, now morphed into a philanthropist.

Now his widow after McCain’s 2018 death from brain cancer, Cindy, who has also had problems with veracity, is now integral to the grandly named McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University, where Cindy serves on the Human Trafficking Advisory Council and the board of trustees. This scheme has vaulted them both to iconic stature. Cindy made human trafficking her focus. Opiate abuse a topic with which she has personal familiarity would not have served her nearly as well.

During a Monday interview on KTAR‘s ‘Mac & Gaydos’ show, reported by the Washington Post, Cindy recounted an incident which she claimed took place at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport — which, of course, now has a McCain terminal.

“I came in from a trip I’d been on and I spotted…it looked odd….”It was a woman of a different ethnicity than the child, this little toddler she had, and something didn’t click with me. I tell people, trust your gut. I went over to the police and told them what I thought, and they went over and questioned her. And by God, she was trafficking that kid.”

The radio show hosts were aghast.

“No way!” one said.

“And you said a toddler?” the other asked.

“Yes,” McCain said. “A toddler. It was a toddler. She was waiting for the guy who brought the child to get off the airplane.”

Cindy McCain is the co-chair of Gov. Ducey’s Arizona Human Trafficking Council. The Ducey and McCain families have been close since Doug Ducey first arrived in Arizona and was hired at Hensley & Co. while attending ASU. Years later as a businessman, John McCain encouraged him to run for state treasurer and he is now serving his second term as governor.

The McCain worshiping Arizona Republic newspaper has so far been mute on Cindy McCain’s fabricated human trafficking tale, on which she has now backtracked since Phoenix Police refuted her story on Wednesday as reported by KTAR News.

Fri. Feb. 8, 2019:

The Arizona Republic, several days late and a dollar short, as the saying goes, finally addresses Cindy McCain’s fabricated tale of saving a toddler from human trafficking — burying it on page 13.  The banal headline: “Cindy McCain steps back from report of trafficking,” sits atop a brief article tucked in among a full page of ads for discounted zoo tickets, window blinds and resale jewelry. Bringing embarrassment to the widow of the Machiavellian man the newspaper obsessively reveres, would never do, even when Cindy McCain’s acknowledged motive for contacting the airport police was based in racism. Imagine the placement and coverage this preposterous claim would have received if the person making the false allegations was First Lady Melania Trump.


Pres. Trump’s WH speech addresses national security, border crisis

January 9, 2019

Last evening, President Donald Trump made the compelling case for addressing the crisis on our southern border.

His prime time speech (9 minutes) was delivered from the Oval Office, stressing the seriousness of the issue that he is willing to go to the mat to fund. The partial government shutdown continues, with “non-essential” workers temporarily furloughed. These are the facts.

Pres. Trump is asking for $5.7 billion for security construction, a small percentage of what we give to foreign nations for their security. More than 200 countries receive American foreign aid. (Numbers supplied by the U.S. Department of State.) Additionally, the U.S. is assessed at 22% of the U.N.‘s budget to bolster the organization that consistently votes in opposition to our interests and those of our allies.

This Jan. 4, 2019 letter sent to members of Congress details the facts and figures relating to the open border and criminality. It also includes these words:

“It is the sovereign right of every nation to establish an immigration program in its national interest—lawfully admitting those who have followed the rules, while denying entry to those who break the rules or fail to meet the requirements established in law.

A nation that fails to control its borders cannot fulfill its most basic obligations to its citizens—physical safety, economic security, essential public services, and the uniform protection of our laws.”

In 2006 The Secure Fence Act (view senate votes) won the majority of Democrat votes and even Republicrat amnesty proponents McCain and Kyl supported it, along with Obama, Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Biden, Durbin, Specter and Feinstein.

Watching last night’s Democrat rebuttal was a study in political absurdity, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who voted for border wall funding in 2006, now steadfastly opposed to any such measures due to his animosity towards Pres. Trump. Schumer currently calls a wall “ineffective.“ Pro-abortion House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who knows something about her description, termed the wall “immoral.”

It would be interesting to know if Catholic Pelosi had a similar discussion with Pope Francis, who lives in safety and security behind a massive 50-feet-tall, ten-feet thick wall surrounding the fortress that is Vatican City.

Unblinking, zombie-like Pelosi questioned the facts of a crisis posed by the thousands of illegal invaders caravanning through Mexico to our border from the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. After arriving at the border, these folks who so desire to be Americans, waved flags of their native countries and hurled rocks and bottles at the U.S. Border Patrol agents.

President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will attend the Senate GOP Policy lunch today and will follow that by hosting a bipartisan group of congressional leaders at the White House.

Donald Trump won the 2016 presidency after distinguishing himself from 16 other Republican Primary Election candidates by campaigning on securing the border. 

Not dissuaded by the obstinate Democrats, he will travel to the U.S.-Mexico border Thursday to further detail the need for a wall.
