Liar George Santos has an AZ rival named Christian Lamar

January 30, 2023

The name George Santos, who was a proficient enough liar to get elected to congress in New York, is emblazoned in our memories since his whoppers were ongoing and his actions outrageous. The link in the previous sentence contains a national news report revealing his preposterous lies.

Christian Lamar, a repeat, though losing, Arizona legislative candidate, was just elected as one of three to a low level obscure CD8 Member-at-Large post at the GOP meeting on Saturday, which he will use as a stepping stone for public office. The other two elected to the post were a state legislator and district chairman.

Lamar lacks any credentials, though he was previously charged and convicted of hitting his live-in girlfriend and coming after her with a frying pan while he was intoxicated. This occurred following a fight they had at a casino. Lamar maintained his innocence, despite three courts upholding the conviction. He then ludicrously filed a civil rights lawsuit against the female responding officer, the Phoenix Police Department, the city and other departments over the arrest, claiming his Fifth and 14th Amendment rights were violated and the investigation was maliciously turned against him due to his race and gender. Christian Lamar sought $7 million in damages, which was tossed by a federal judge. Had he won, he would have been made rich on the backs of law-abiding taxpayers, whose votes he continually seeks.

Christian Lamar was also the subject of a civil lawsuit brought by Midland Funding in 2021.

In remembrance of Russell Pearce and the fate of the “Republic”

January 18, 2023

Although it is not our policy to post articles we did not write or something of this length, this is the worthy exception. Read it and you’ll understand.

A Celebration of the Life of Russell Pearce took place Monday, January 16 in the town he always called home…Mesa. Friends, family, and a crowd of admirers assembled to celebrate the life of this conservative stalwart and thoroughly decent man.

Former Congressman JD Hayworth was in attendance, and could not help but notice the difference between Monday’s service and the “send-off” provided by the daily newspaper. It prompted Hayworth to pen this column, reprinted below.


Russell Pearce and the fate of the “Republic”

You need not look very far to find the latest evidence reaffirming the well-earned nickname of The Arizona Republic.

A reading of the Jan. 5 article on the death of former State Senator Russell Pearce brings to mind the single word that serves both as an accurate description of that sickly publication’s open borders bias…as well as its oft-employed sobriquet: Repugnant.

The trio of creative writers tasked with putting Pearce’s passing “in perspective” certainly didn’t disappoint their editorial overlords; they deliberately mischaracterized the intent of his carefully crafted, ultimately passed, and signed-into-law Senate Bill 1070.

Actually, headline writers began the barrage by calling the legislation “controversial.” That word serves as the “tell sign” when a publication disapproves of the subject of its coverage. Reporters Andrew Oxford, Mary Jo Pitzl, and Daniel Gonzalez weren’t far behind; by the article’s third paragraph, they included predictable leftist doggerel, peddled as fact: “Arizona’s ‘show me your papers’ law,” they wrote.

Had the trio of scribes been interested in objectivity instead of smearing the departed, a simple bit of research into SB 1070 and its fate in the courts would have been highlighted.

The “Fair and Legal Employment Act,” as Pearce named the legislation, drafted in consultation with then-Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who now serves as that state’s Attorney General, was formulated with the intent of defining Arizona’s right to identify and detain illegal immigrants, based on existing federal law.

As Senator Pearce said in 2010, in response to the inevitable court challenges from the Obama Administration and other advocates for open borders, “SB 1070 makes no new immigration law. It simply enforces the laws already on the books…I refuse to apologize for standing up for America and the rule of law.”

In fact, no less a liberal tribunal than the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit made clear in 1983 that nothing in federal law precludes a city from enforcing the criminal provisions of immigration law, and SB 1070, its supporters maintained, simply advanced that same practice for the entire state of Arizona.

But the intervening 27 years brought forth an activism intent on defining “open borders” as noble, and any effort to enforce existing immigration law as wrongheaded, or on “the wrong side of history,” to use the favorite buzz-phrase of the left.

Such a dubious cause sought to wrap itself in legitimacy, and exploit the growing realization that many jurists on the federal bench were more than willing to usurp legislative authority if such a drastic action were in tune with their own political goals. Instead of “equal justice under law,” our nation has witnessed the advent of “unequal application of the law, based upon political preference.”

Eventually, the U.S. Supreme Court considered the constitutionality of SB 1070, and the high court, while finding some portions of the legislation in conflict with federal law, upheld the provision that the left and its media lackeys still mischaracterize.

Far from radical, the “Supremes” found that seeking documentation for a person’s immigration status was entirely reasonable. The ruling stated that if law enforcement officers have stopped a subject for a legitimate reason, those officers must “reasonably attempt” to determine that subject’s immigration status when there is a “reasonable suspicion” that the person may be in the country illegally.

But reasonableness means nothing to the rabid, and the reporting of the “Repugnant” focuses on pleasing a particular point of view typified by those whose hatred of Russell Pearce has not abated…even after his earthly departure.

How else to describe the featured comments of one “community activist,” who compared Pearce to a terrorist? Said this “activist,” whose name is omitted from this column since she is undeserving of any additional notoriety: “I’m sad for all the terror that he caused our community, [and] all the people who were deported because of his political grandstanding.”

For good measure, the “Repugnant” reporters felt the need to include one more example of this self-appointed “humanitarian’s” inhumanity: her desire to see the deceased lampooned for laughs. “She would love to see one last political cartoon showing Pearce standing at the gates of Heaven, and being asked to ‘show his papers.’”

What does The Arizona Republic have to show for its desired editorial goal of open borders and its eager embrace of amnesty for illegal aliens? Fewer readers, for one thing. A budget awash in red ink, for another.

Russell Pearce met the fate that awaits us all. Now he belongs to history.

The smug and self-assured, so eager to bid him farewell will soon find the publication for which they toil facing its own demise. Maybe then, the staff of The Arizona Republic will realize that they are on “the wrong side of history.”


Oops! Pesky classified documents found at Biden’s home

January 13, 2023

Biden spokesmouth Karine Jean-Pierre quotes lawyer: “Documents Inadvertently misplaced”…calls it a “mistake.”

Refuses to call on reporter asking pertinent question…moves on to “something not related to this“:

How can we tell Joe Biden is truthful when discussing boxes of classified documents found in his garage? He reads from a prepared script, takes no questions, and then walks away.

Joe Biden’s political future took a nosedive yesterday after U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Robert Hur, a former U.S. attorney in Maryland, as special counsel to investigate Biden’s handling of the classified documents. The downside is incompetent, cackling Kamala Harris, selected as vice president solely because she is a mixed-race female, is waiting in the wings.

Australian TV is onto her more than American democrats:


AZ’s election fraud exposed by The Gateway Pundit

January 11, 2023

Looking for truth? Skip the local newspaper

Deceitful collusion is exposed by The Gateway Pundit’s Jordan Conradson. His report is titled, “JUST IN: “Defamation Attorneys Are Being Consulted” – Former Arizona AG Election Unit Head Jennifer Wright Starts Defamation Claim After Fake News Smears Her, Claims She Was Fired.”

To whet your appetite for the truth, Conradson’s pull-no-punches report begins with these words:  “Former Assistant Attorney General and head of the Election Integrity Unit Jennifer Wright came under fire from the Fake News Media, likely due to her willingness to pursue election fraud investigations, after resigning from her position before radical leftist Kris Mayes took office.”

Be advised, the linked report’s accompanying photo of Arizona’s new Attorney General Kris Mayes, is best viewed on an empty stomach. Mayes appealed to open border proponent former governor Janet Napolitano, who gave Mayes her first political break as her press secretary, but more discriminating people are sure to be repulsed.

Open border advocate Napolitano was known for saying, “You show me a 50-foot wall and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder,” after which Barack Obama appointed her Secretary of Homeland Security. Mayes, now in a position of authority, is an integral part of that cabal.


Biden mistakenly picks fight with Arizona

December 16, 2022

Delaware leftist Joe Biden thinks fellow political opportunist and carpetbagger, John McCain, was representative of Arizona

Today we take our readers directly to the Washington Examiner topped by a headline that blasts: “Biden DOJ sues Arizona over border wall installed on federal forest land.” Though stunning, it is not intended to be provocative. Homeland Security Reporter Anna Giaritelli deals in facts.

Slippery and brash, when former POW John McCain returned from Vietnam, he left his wife and family and married heiress Cindy Lou Hensley, 18 years his junior. With her powerful father’s connections to open doors for his new son-in-law, McCain won a seat in Congress just one year after moving to Arizona. She later became the chairman of her family’s business, Hensley Beverage Company, one of the largest Anheuser-Busch distributors in the nation.

After McCain’s death, Cindy ditched the Republican Party and campaigned for Joe Biden, who repaid her as a Permanent Representative of the U.S. Mission to the UN Agencies in Rome on November 5, 2021 — bestowing an Ambassadorship upon her. Cindy Lou, who holds herself in higher esteem than anyone else does, also signed on with UTA, a Hollywood-based talent agency.

Cindy was previously an Arizona junior rodeo queen, enhancing her credentials in the state. John had none, though he worked at faking them. The McCain family despised Pres. Donald Trump who attained what always eluded John — the presidency of the United States. The jealousy driven animus ran so deep, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were purposely excluded from McCain’s funeral, although the Obama’s were given preferential treatment and Barack Obama, who actually beat McCain in the race for the presidency, gave a eulogy. Irascible to the end, John McCain worked on the “guest list.”


Biden officially redefines marriage

December 14, 2022


In this December 13, 2022, press release, Joe Biden gave his approval to H.R. 8404, officially authorizing what the democrats cunningly refer to as the “Respect for Marriage Act.” In fact, it redefines marriage. Oddly added to the bill is approval of interracial marriage, which has not been in question since Loving v. Virginia, unanimously decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1967. Justia summarizes the case here. History.com has more, including a video. Biden might have appeared less foolish if his handlers spent a few minutes bringing him up to speed on Richard and Mildred Loving‘s case.

Biden thanked Speaker Pelosi, Representatives Nadler, Cicilline, and Davids, Leader Schumer, Senators Baldwin, Collins, Portman, Sinema, Tillis, Feinstein, and Booker, along with  unnamed “many others” for their leadership on the same-sex marriage bill.

He could not thank the Lord, who is very clear in instructions about homosexuality as seen here in Leviticus 18:22.

The bill lacks religious liberty protections. The fact that three religious liberty amendments were rejected by the Senate (proposed by Sens. Lee, Lankford and Rubio) in favor of the Baldwin-Collins amendment illustrates the open disdain the bill presents to religious freedom. America’s Catholic Bishops are already expressing dissatisfaction with the bill. Catholic Biden doesn’t care.


Kari Lake files lawsuit against Maricopa County, elections officials

November 26, 2022

Unprecedented Election Day mayhem must be addressed

On Friday, Nov. 25, 2022, Arizona’s Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake’s campaign sued Maricopa County and its election officials, demanding they respond to her campaign’s public records requests regarding malfunctions on Election Day — before the county certifies its vote canvass on Monday. The Republic Brief (not to be contused with Frosty Taylor’s popular local Maricopa County Republican Briefs) carries the report, including a copy of the lawsuit filed by lawyer Abraham Hamadeh, alleging “gross incompetence and mismanagement of the General Election by certain election officials.”

Previously, on Nov. 22, 2022, reporter Kari Donovan wrote: “BREAKING: Kari Lake Delivers Message To Arizona and All Americans On “Botched And Broken November 8 Election.”

On Nov. 23, Kari Lake appeared on NEWSMAX:


Slippery AZ Republic buries report on Kris Mayes’ questionable stock trades

October 23, 2022

Kris Mayes is a far-left democrat. She is also running for attorney general. Normally those facts would be enough to give her Page One placement in the radically left newspaper. Today, however, she is buried on Page 12 of Section B. 

It’s enough to make the dwindling readership wonder, “What’s up?” Associated Press recently admitted, “US newspapers continuing to die at rate of 2 each week.“ Technology enabling us to have instantly updated news as close as our fingertips aside, this reporting duplicity is no doubt a contributing factor.

Today’s headline worthy of back paging is, “Mayes’ stock trades questioned.” Kris Mayes, a former political reporter at the newspaper prior to the June 2000 sale to Gannett, has been forced to acknowledge she was one of ten reporters who had purchased Central Newspapers stock (the parent company of the Arizona Republic) through a 401(k) account in advance of the sale. That’s an illegal practice known as insider trading.” Mayes, who claims she did nothing wrong, then left the newspaper to attend law school. As the well-known girlfriend of Gov. Janet Napolitano, she was admitted without question.

This morning’s edition acknowledges, “The value of the stock rose after the company announced it had put itself up for sale and more than doubled from there once a deal with Gannett was announced.”


Mexico absurdly claims innocence in gun crimes, wants U.S. to pay $billions

October 11, 2022

According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, the word “chutzpah” meaning raw nerve, is often exemplified by a man who kills his parents and then asks the court for mercy, on the grounds that he is an orphan.

The word, with roots in the Yiddish language, might seem an odd choice to define Mexico’s latest overreach, but it couldn’t be more fitting.

According to ABC News, The Mexican government — suing for unspecified monetary damages — filed another U.S. gun lawsuit Monday, this time against five U.S. gun shops and distributors it claims are responsible for the flow of illegal weapons into Mexico.

Mexico’s first lawsuit, which was recently dismissed, targeted U.S. gun manufacturers and was seeking at least $10 billion in compensation. The second, which Mexico’s Foreign Affairs Secretary Marcelo Ebrard said was filed in Arizona’s federal district court Monday, targets gun dealers. This is not a new tactic. This criminal complaint was filed in 2021 in Massachusetts. It’s all about money.

“We are suing them because clearly there is a pattern, we contend that it is obvious that there is weapons trafficking and that it is known that these guns are going to our country,” Ebrard said.

Last week, Ebrard threatened that the new lawsuit would target gun shops or dealers in U.S. border states that sell guns to “straw” purchasers passing them on to smugglers, who in turn transport the weapons into Mexico. Marcelo Ebrard, who is unable to acknowledge Mexico is plagued by crime, was affiliated with Mexico’s Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD) until 2018.

This is the U.S. Department of State Mexico Travel Advisory, warning that Mexico is “high risk for violent crime – such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery – are widespread and common in Mexico. The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in many areas of Mexico, as travel by U.S. government employees to certain areas is prohibited or restricted. In many states, local emergency services are limited outside the state capital or major cities.”


Alien Invasion: A shocking documentary on Biden’s border crisis

October 1, 2022

Sec. of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas bent on reconfiguring America

Officially Congressman Andy Biggs represents the people of Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District. But in fact, he represents us all…and how fortunate we are to have this knowledgeable man serving in Washington, D.C. alongside, and partnering with, our state’s GOP U.S. Reps. Paul Gosar, DDS (CD-4), David Schweikert (CD- 6), and Debbie Lesko (CD-8).

U.S. Rep. Biggs — co-chair of the Congressional Border Security Caucus — recently premiered a new border documentary titled, “Alien Invasion,” at The Heritage Foundation. The documentary addresses how Joe Biden’s border crisis began, its consequences, and solutions to address the crisis. SRAZ has included it here for our valued readers.

Biggs introduced H.R.8951 the Ending Catch and Release Act of 2022. This legislation amends the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) to prohibit the Biden Administration from continuing to release illegal aliens into the United States. The Washington Times headlined its coverage, “Biggs renews calls to impeach Mayorkas in new documentary targeting Biden’s border policies.”

Watch Biggs’ newly released, fact-filled documentary. We are presenting it on Saturday when time is not as constricted as on a weekday. This information is crucial.

Alejandro Mayorkas’ 56 – 43 senate confirmation as Secretary of Homeland Security was, with few exceptions, a party line vote. Arizona’s two democrat senators, putting party above their own border state’s security, both supported him.
