Obiden admin. pushes mass amnesty to fortify dem party

July 17, 2021

Federal Judge halts DACA scheme in Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, South Carolina and West Virginia 

Nearly a decade ago, when Barack Obama pushed for DACA for illegal aliens, he claimed, “This is not amnesty, it is not immunity, it is not a pathway to citizenship.” Most Americans knew he was lying through his pearly whites. Now blatantly pulling the strings on the Biden administration, saying Joe is “finishing the job,” of his presidency, VP Kamala Harris is brazenly calling for a “pathway to citizenship” that gives “relief and hope to talented, driven, patriotic young people.”

The charade needs to be exposed for what it is.

In 2018, SRAZ wrote “…most are adults, not “kids,” which reveals the truth about DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients. There is no accurate means of verifying if they were brought into the U.S. as infants by their illegally invading parents or arrived last year after hoisting themselves over the border.” We noted that many of them are grandparents, not babes in arms. One category they surely fit is a large, reliable democrat voting bloc.

At the time, The Washington Examiner exposed the amnesty scheme for what it was. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), still under the spell of John McCain, joined with Jeff Flake and Dick Durbin (D-Ill) on pushing the measure that ultimately failed.

Fast forward to July 16, 2021. A federal judge in Texas on Friday ordered an end to an Obama-era program that prevented the deportations of what cunningly became known as DREAMERs supposedly brought into the United States as children. In 2006, Kris Kobach, constitutional law professor, former Kansas Secretary of State and author of Arizona’s SB 1070, wrote, “The Senate Immigration Bill Rewards Lawbreaking: Why the DREAM Act Is a Nightmare.” Kobach is currently running for Kansas’ Attorney General.

On Friday, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, nominated by George W. Bush and confirmed by a 97- 0 senate vote,  ruled in favor of Texas and eight other states that sued to halt the DACA program, which provides protections to an estimated three-quarters of a million illegals.

Our votes matter. Among their many duties, U.S. Senators confirm federal judges, who are often on the bench for decades.

Conservative businessman Jim Lamon is challenging far-leftist, 2nd amendment restrictionist, benefactor of nefarious China deals and Obama insider Mark Kelly, who has been funded by Socialist George Soros. We have a chance to make a difference.


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.


Biden, dems, impose fed. power over local zoning laws

June 29, 2021

Comply or lose gov’t funding…our own money…as voter demographics are altered

Many Americans choose to live in the suburbs and endure the longer drive to the city center where their jobs are often located. It’s a trade-off they opt to make. They want the openness of suburbia, a yard, maybe a pool; a place where their kids can walk safely to a neighborhood school, and a nearby park. Their grandparents, frequently immigrants or a generation or two away, often lived in big cities, dense with low-rent, high-rise apartments and tough neighborhoods.

Their educated and upwardly mobile descendants were able to use their earned resources to relocate. Being Americans gives us the freedom to decide where we live.  Or so we thought.

It turns out democrats have other plans in mind.

When President Donald Trump warned about the democrats’ plan to “abolish” suburbs by infusing low income, high density housing into established neighborhoods during a Phoenix rally, he was falsely accused of “race baiting.” National Review’s Stanley Kurtz wrote “Biden and Dems Are Set to Abolish the Suburbs,” verifying what many attendees remember.

Luke Rosiak writing for The Daily Wire has written an investigative report titled, “Stealth Goal Of Infrastructure Plan Could Be To Abolish The Suburbs By Bribing Towns To Change Zoning Laws,” that is sure to leave you wondering what’s going on.

The answer is power-hungry democrats now dominate Washington, D.C.

These reports are not something you should read. As a freedom loving citizen, they are something you must read. There is a method to what appears to be leftist madness. Infusions of democrats into GOP suburbs will unalterably change voting demographics. That’s plain to see with the democrat courting of illegal aliens.

The Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule, which Kurtz refers to as “radical,” was conceptualized during the Obama administration and carrying an effective date of July 31, 2021, requires local governments that receive federal funding to study racial bias in their housing patterns and develop plans to address it.

It’s a grotesque transmogrification of title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, 42 U.S.C. 3601-3619.

Get politically involved. Silence is acquiescence. Begin with your city council and state legislators. Time is short.


Diversity, inclusion go off the rails at MC Attorney’s Office

June 22, 2021

Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel has new mission

In an office whose duty is prosecution of criminals, Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel has, instead, hopped onboard the inclusivity and diversity bandwagon, signing a “unity pledge.”

Recently, the appointed county attorney bizarrely dismissed the charges against the anti-police rioters marauding in downtown Phoenix, issuing this statement:

“It is the decision of this office that it is in the interests of justice to not proceed.”  She concluded her statement with these words: “I believe that just because we can legally pursue charges does not always mean that we should. It is not an easy decision to step away from a case when we believe crimes were committed, but in this case, it is the right thing to do.”

This absurd action emboldening criminality is why she needs to be challenged by someone who understands the difference between a social worker mentality and doing the job of prosecuting criminals and keeping the county safe for law abiding residents. 

Instead there is a new focus. An interoffice email from the MCAO Diversity Committee lavished praise on President Biden for making history by signing a law recognizing Juneteenth as a federal holiday. 

“Hello MCAO Community, the DEI Committee is going to start sending out a “Spotlight on Diversity” email at the beginning of each month.  Starting with July, we will spotlight an MCAO employee, sharing the diversity and value they bring to our office.  If you or someone you know would be a great spotlight, please let us know!”

The email also noted that “June is Pride month, celebrating the LGBTQ+ community, giving its history along with this “Fun fact”: A few years ago, organizers decided it is too hot in Phoenix to have a June parade and festival.  Phoenix Pride parade and festival now happens in early November.”

Included in the email was a list of Inclusion tips:

– Get familiar with the LBGTQ+ spectrum

– Learn terminology

– Use inclusive language in communication (instead of Ladies and Gentlemen, try folks, friends, community members)

– Participate in local events and groups (consider joining the LGBTQ+ ERG as an ally)

– Respect people’s pronouns and names

The tagline on the lengthy memo, announcing monthly messages on this topic, states: “Diversity in itself does not create inclusion — an inclusive environment must be intentionally designed, nurtured, and supported.”

Allister Adel’s selection by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors following the resignation of former Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery when he was appointed to the Arizona Supreme Court was greeted with fanfare proclaiming her as the first female to head the prosecutor’s office. 

She should not have been identified by her plumbing, but by her leftward bent.


MC Attorney dismisses charges against anti-police rioters

June 13, 2021

This statement from Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel regarding the dismissal of charges for the Oct. 17, 2020 riot case against Phoenix Police raises far more questions than it answers. Acknowledging the fact that crimes were committed, she then goes on to convolutedly address the issue in the third person, stating, “It is the decision of this office that it is in the interests of justice to not proceed.”

Scrolling through the links following the statement, it appears the Maricopa County Attorney is more attuned to distributing community service announcements than to prosecuting criminality, which is the fundamental duty of the prosecutor’s office in the fourth largest and fastest growing county in the United States.

Phoenix Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Ann Justus stated at the time, “As officers began making arrests, incendiary devices were thrown at them. Due to the ongoing criminal activity and assault, the Phoenix Police deployed less lethal munitions in order to safely make arrests.”

The marauding gangs, using the death of repeatedly incarcerated George Floyd 1700 miles away in Minneapolis, to assault Phoenix Police, faced numerous charges including aggravated assault on officers, criminal damage, unlawful assembly, rioting, resisting arrest and obstructing a roadway. They knocked over barricades, “causing a fully marked Phoenix Police patrol vehicle to sustain damage,” Justus said.

Rioters attempted to conceal their faces from view with black umbrellas as they set off smoke bombs in the road and flung them at officers. When police finally declared an unlawful assembly, they were ignored. Fifteen adults and three teens were arrested.

It was reported that flyers for the protest were posted on social media prior to the rampage, boasting, “Phoenix PD underestimates the power of the people. March with us to occupy Washington Street and remind PD who they serve. We will not stay silent. Until we get justice, Phoenix will have no peace.”

Protests against the police have not been isolated incidents and nationally efforts to defund the police have gained momentum resulting in officers leaving and crime rates rising. Yet these are the people Maricopa County Attorney Adel thinks are worthy of having their charges dropped. Violent rioters do not respond to weakness. It emboldens them.


Lawyer misplaces compassion, finds an absurd platform

June 10, 2021

Leftist newspapers such as the Arizona Republic don’t only despise conservative candidates, elected office holders, voters and opinions; they use their flagging platform to promote their twisted agenda. A recent edition is a case in point.  A third of the editorial page was devoted to a commentary titled, “I watched a gas chamber execution. It still haunts me.”

The author protesting the death penalty is Tempe-based defense attorney Jim Belanger. In1982, his client Donald Eugene Harding was found guilty of the wanton 1980 murders of two businessmen, whose names are too irrelevant for Belanger to mention in his lengthy diatribe. Throughout the article, he refers to the homicidal perpetrator warmly as “Don.” What he focuses on is not the heinous criminality of Harding’s acts but what he refers to as “the indignity of being striped nearly naked, wearing a pair of white, diaper-like under shorts with an electric monitor attached to his chest.” Following the guilty verdict came the appeals, and Harding got a reprieve of another ten years before his 1992 execution. That’s more than his victims Robert Wise and Martin Concannon were accorded. In a separate murder, Harding also killed Allen Gage.

Not noted in Belanger’s account of the 10 minutes it took Harding to die, and how he “wanted to vomit as he wept” misplaced tears, is the fact that Harding spent his last moments cursing at then-Attorney General Grant Woods, another state execution witness and giving him the middle finger.  The final indignity comes from lawyer Belanger who inconceivably compares the death penalty to being “disturbingly like the one the Nazis deployed to murder millions in the Holocaust.”  Belanger is woefully lacking in historical knowledge, Hitler’s victims unlike Harding‘s, were blameless, rounded up and systematically slaughtered in extermination camps for the crime of adhering to their faith. There is no correlation.

Following Harding’s execution, Arizona moved to lethal injection for administering the death penalty.  This is the list of those executed by the state of Arizona since capital punishment resumed in 1976.

The Arizona Department of Corrections inmate database fills in the cavernous holes in Belanger’s tale, including numerous prior convictions and the depravity of Harding’s acts. Harding even had the opportunity to order a last meal. He chose “several fried eggs, several strips of bacon, toast, butter, honey and orange juice.”

That was far better treatment than his innocent victims Robert Wise, Martin Concannon and Allen Gage received. They were bound, gagged, beaten and shot in the head and chest at close range.

If you want unvarnished news, the local newspaper is not a reliable source.


SCOTUS rules illegals do not have a right to Green Cards

June 9, 2021

Sanity prevails in unanimous U.S. Supreme Court decision

The U.S. Supreme Court, in a 9-0 unanimous decision, ruled on Monday that illegal aliens who have been granted temporary humanitarian relief from deportation cannot use the process known as “adjustment of status” to obtain lawful permanent residency in the United States without leaving the country. The court ruled in Sanchez v. Mayorkas that adjustment of status is reserved for those who were inspected at the border and admitted to the United States by an immigration officer, thus disqualifying the majority of those granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS). Justice Elena Kagan, nominated to the Supreme Court by President Barack Obama in 2010, wrote the opinion for the court.

El Salvadoran nationals, Jose Sanchez and Sonia Gonzalez illegally entered the United States decades ago. The U.S. government granted them temporary protection in 2001 when it designated El Salvador as part of the TPS program in the wake of damaging earthquakes in that country.

Sanchez and Gonzalez have maintained TPS status for 20 years, during which Sanchez’s employer filed an immigration-visa petition for Sanchez as a “skilled worker.” Immigration officials approved this petition, authorizing Sanchez to be admitted to the United States as a lawful permanent resident. They simultaneously granted the same approval for Gonzalez.

The U.S. government, however, denied the couple’s subsequent application to use the adjustment-of-status process in order to transition from temporary to permanent residency without leaving the United States. Immigration officials ruled that the couple’s original illegal entry disqualified them from adjustment of status. The government relied on the text of Immigration and Nationality Act Section 1255(a), which restricts the in-country adjustment-of-status process to illegal aliens who were “inspected and admitted or paroled into the United States.”

Notice that the U.S. Law refers to the persons in question as “aliens,” throughout. The words, migrants, undocumented, refugees, and asylum seekers are constructs of the left in describing America’s invaders.

This illuminating commentary, “Illegal Alien”: The Proper Terminology, posted on Federation for American Immigration Reform, by Eric A. Ruark is definitely worth your time.

In 2017 there were an estimated 400,000 people from 12 countries with TPS status. That was likely an undercount, which has no doubt escalated in the intervening years. At the time, they were identified as coming across our southern border from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Myanmar, Nepal, Nicaragua, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen.

In truth, we have no handle on who is illegally invading the United States, and the democrats have no desire to stop the invasion from which they benefit.


Illegal aliens being housed in Scottsdale hotel

June 3, 2021

The headlined news item, “Migrants could be detained at Valley hotel,” must have warmed the metaphorical cockles of nearby residents. The now closed Hilton Homewood Suites located at Scottsdale Road and Mountain View, is in the upscale 85253 zip code.

Now it’s a done deal.

There are currently negotiations underway between the property owner and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to operate the property as an “Emergency Family Station Center,” for what they blandly refer to as “migrants,” and the rest of us know to be illegal aliens, who have violated our sovereign national border as they furtively invade our nation.

Woodbridge Hospitality, the property owner, has filed for bankruptcy, and is negotiating to sell the property to a company that intends to convert it into an apartment complex. The price of $17.5 million would be negatively impacted following the use of the hotel to house illegals.

On Wednesday evening, hundreds of people assembled in front of the hotel, waving American flags and carrying signs protesting the plan to house and feed lawbreakers in the shuttered facility. Several of the signs focusing on the worsening border predicament read, “Secure Our Border,” and “Don’t blame me, I voted for Trump.”

This June 2, 2021 letter from Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich to the law firms representing the lender and borrower of the property, expresses his “grave concerns” over the use of the property. He writes, “The root-causes of the current crisis are problems of the Biden administration’s own making.” Copies of the letter were sent to Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel and Scottsdale City Attorney Sherry R. Scott.

The City of Scottsdale issued this terse, buck-passing communiqué from its Office of Communications.

The hotel, located between two apartment complexes and a block away from Chaparral High School, will house 1,200 illegal aliens — referred to as “migrants.”

These are migrants. They go home. Don’t confuse them with invaders, who stay and expect accommodations.


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.

Maricopa County Election audit: DOJ partisan sharks in the tank

May 17, 2021

The Epoch Times’ Jack Phillips reports another bombshell as it relates to the ongoing ballot audit. Headlined, “GOP Chair Elise Stefanik: Justice Department Is ‘Trying to Block’ Maricopa County Audit,”it is a must read. 

U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who was recently elected as the House Republican Conference chair, replacing ousted Liz Cheney, said the Department of Justice’s questions about the audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County, Arizona, may be unconstitutional.

“I support that audit,” Stefanik said after being asked about the audit in a Fox Business interview Sunday. “Transparency is good for the American people. And again, this should be a non-partisan issue, whether you are Republican, Democrat, independent, or conservative, transparency is important and the audit was passed by the Arizona State Senate.”

Stefanik later said that the “Biden Department of Justice is trying to block that audit,” which she said, “is unconstitutional from my perspective,” adding, “Our states, constitutionally, are responsible for writing states’ constitution law.”

Pamela Karlan, (check link) an ill-mannered, left-wing partisan and principal deputy assistant attorney general with the Biden administration’s Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, sent this May 5 letter to Arizona Senate President Karen Fann (R-LD1) that a “description of the proposed work of the audit raises concerns regarding potential intimidation of voters.” Fann, in response, said that the plan by election auditors to verify the validity of certain individual voters was placed on hold.

“If and to the extent the Senate subsequently decides that canvassing is necessary to the successful completion of the audit, its vendor will implement detailed requirements to ensure that the canvassing is conducted in a manner that complies fully with the commands of the United States Constitution and federal and state civil rights laws,” Fann wrote earlier this month.

Stefanik’s comments Sunday came just days after Dominion Voting Systems and Maricopa County officials said they would not provide passwords for election machines in Maricopa County. Dominion argued that it would comply with the audit, but it added that Cyber Ninjas, the company hired by the Arizona Senate, isn’t accredited by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.

Stefanik, who was supported by former President Trump and GOP House leaders, was approved by House Republicans in a 134 to 46 vote last week to chair the Republican Conference, the party’s Number 3 position in the House of Representatives.
