Desperate dems seek to upend SCOTUS as diversion from their own failures

May 10, 2022

Biden’s handlers downplay, divert from economic crisis as midterm elections loom

The ginned up mobs threatening U.S. Supreme Court justices at their private residences and their venerated workplace are not serendipitous. Chief Justice John Roberts issued this press release explaining the driving force behind the unprecedented harassment. It is the result of a leaked draft document written by Justice Samuel Alito — his own opinion on Roe v. Wade, which has no independent legal standing — has been intentionally blown out of proportion to divert attention from the myriad actual failures of the Biden administration.

Established by the U.S. Constitution, the Supreme Court was created with the passage of the Judiciary Act of 1789. The respected institution is the foundation of our democracy.

Suddenly, it has become a political football being kicked around by democrats desperate to divert attention from the worst economy in decades. Americans are besieged by shortages of basics such as food, housing, gas, and even vanishing baby formula — accompanying continually soaring prices, leaving Americans stunned, irate and alarmed.

Democrats facing the midterm elections are rightfully fearful of sweeping losses as the economy and now the stock market is in an epic fail. On Monday, gold dropped $27. This morning Barron’s Financial News runs this lethal headline, “The S&P 500 Has Gotten Crushed. It Could Drop Another 14%.”

According to the deep thinkers in the democrat party, the best way to skirt the problems that plague them is to employ the classic magic sleight of hand trickery of “Look here, not there,” deflection as they attempt to blame all of their failures on Republicans. The desperate scheme is not gaining traction among Americans who are unable to escape the daily reality of Bidenflation. The facts of President Trump’s Unprecedented Economic Boom stand in stark contrast.


U.S. Supreme Court under fire by conservative-hating dems

May 7, 2022

The brilliance of Victor Davis Hanson shines with his recent commentary titled, “Losing the People? Then Change the Rules.”

He focuses on the political left’s desire to facilitate its agenda by increasing the size of the U.S. Supreme Court, turning historical precedent on its ear in order to upend the Republican majority, the last three of whom — Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett — were nominated by President Donald Trump, a sure-fire rankler to the left.

The fact that the most recent Supreme Court appointee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, was a Biden administration pick is of no consequence. They want total control as a previous democrat Pres. Franklin Roosevelt tried and failed to grab by a court-packing scheme in 1937.*

Historical information on the court from its inception through the present, including pictures and bios (linked under the names of the justices) can be seen here.

Greater agenda behind leaked Supreme Court document

May 5, 2022

Much speculation has surrounded the recent news of what has been called the Roe v. Wade leaker, a person — likely a law clerk — with a left-wing agenda, who calculatingly made public a draft copy of Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion that has resulted in wild protests across the United States.

This is less about abortion than it is about diverting attention from the dismal Biden presidency marked by unparallel inflation and a calamitous illegal invasion to which the dems turn a blind eye, viewing those who disregard our national border as a bolstered democrat voting bloc.

Democrats have been despondent over Biden’s plunging poll numbers. His weakness on the economy, energy, the violent crime surge, foreign policy, the border crisis, COVID-19 mandates and referring to parents who protest Critical Race Theory and transgenderism being taught to their children as “domestic terrorists,” none of which carry majority support.

This diversion scheme is intended to ward off what increasingly appear to be major losses in the upcoming elections. Real Clear Politics aggregated polling numbers are the worst ever, with 62.8% of Americans stating the country is headed in the wrong direction. Only 29.4% of respondents said we are heading in the right direction.

Now the focus has shiftily shifted to the issue of abortion with rioting mobs assembling across the breadth of the nation, declaring the right to murder pre-born human babies at any time before birth is a justifiable right. The left preposterously calls it “health care.”

This intentionally constructed mob-related frenzy threatening the justice’s safety resulted in a “non-scalable” security fence being erected around the Supreme Court building as the Department of Justice and the FBI are in pursuit of the leaker who put this calamity in motion to provoke the radical base to fend off a likely dem disaster in the November midterm elections.

Read this explanatory May 3, 2022 press release from the office of Chief Justice John Roberts.

The purposeful leak is consistent with the leftist assault on the Supreme Court that has increasingly intensified. Democrats have been enraged ever since former presidents George W. Bush and especially Donald Trump’s appointees solidified a conservative majority. Bush appointed Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito. Donald Trump appointed Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett to the nine-member Court.

Unlike Biden, neither of them announced that only applicants of a particular gender and ethnicity need apply.


Problem plagued MC Attorney Allister Adel dead at 45

May 1, 2022

In a shocking turn of events, the family of former Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel, who resigned under pressure March 21, has announced her death from unspecified “health complications.” She was a wife and mother of two young sons.

Adel was heralded as the first woman to lead the nation’s third largest prosecutor’s office, when she was selected by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, prior to her election. Not disclosed were the myriad personal problems that she repeatedly sought treatment for on an ongoing basis, frequently leaving the office for extended periods of time. When she was there, her focus was often diverted from prosecution of criminals to diversity and inclusion.

On April 20, 2022 the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors announced the appointment of eminently well-qualified Rachel Mitchell, an office veteran, Mitchell who was the chief deputy and then served as interim Maricopa County Attorney when then-county Attorney Bill Montgomery was appointed to the Arizona Supreme Court.

Allister Adel’s untimely death is a dreadful tragedy. It also stands as a memorial to political correctness gone awry.


MC Attorney’s Office pro Rachel Mitchell sworn in, signaling a return of professionalism

April 21, 2022

Board of Supervisors appoints experienced career prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to complete the term of disgraced Allister Adel

Residents of Maricopa County, the nation’s fourth largest and fastest growing county, have watched in horror as the prosecutor’s office has devolved from a respected office to a floundering and demoralized agency with the appointment and then election of Allister Adel, who brought her multitude of personal problems to the job where she rarely showed up due to her ongoing in-and-out-of-state residential treatment for alcohol abuse, depression and an eating disorder.

Adel brought one qualification, the newly elevated double X chromosomes, that placed her at the top of the list for consideration when then-county attorney Bill Montgomery was gifted with a seat on the newly, and unnecessarily expanded Arizona Supreme Court by Gov. Doug Ducey.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors announced the appointment of Rachel Mitchell as Maricopa County Attorney in this April 20, 2022 news bulletin. But it’s not over for the well-qualified office veteran Mitchell who was the chief deputy and then served as interim Maricopa County Attorney following Montgomery’s move. After an August GOP Primary with two other declared candidates — who would do us all a favor by sitting this race out — she’ll face a democrat running for the position in the November 22 General Election. The winner will serve as county attorney through 2024.

Allister Adel’s letter of resignation, dated March 22, 2022, ends the unprecedented and pathetic saga. which has been ongoing and worsening as we pointed out in the following posts:

June 22, 2021:   Diversity, inclusion go off the rails at MC Attorney’s Office

Impartial judiciary? Not when it comes to Pres. Trump

March 31, 2022

AZ Republic headline blasts, “Judge: Trump’s efforts after vote likely criminal.”

The contemptible comment comes straight from the ruling of U.S. District Court Judge David O. Carter. He was nominated to the federal bench Oct. 21, 1998 by Pres. Bill Clinton and quickly confirmed the next day by a voice vote, making it impossible to know what the actual pro and con vote total was, since no senators were identified. This cagey policy is not the norm.

What we know in the intervening years is that Judge Carter is not an unbiased trier of facts, but a robed partisan who referred to President Donald Trump as engaged in a “conspiracy to defraud the United States.” (page 36.) This March 28, 2022 legal disposition by Judge Carter leaves no room for confusion where he stands in regard to mischaracterizing the events of January 6, 2021. On page 39 of this court filing, he describes “Overt acts in furtherance of the conspiracy.” 

As much as we’d like to believe judges are impartial and apolitical, the reality is they are appointed by politically aligned governors and presidents. Under some circumstances they have to defend their careers and character to selection panels. None in recent memory had his integrity impugned by desperate partisans during the nomination process as we witnessed with President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh. Though he had honorably served for over a decade as judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, he was deceitfully vilified, in a desperate effort to deny President Trump another SCOTUS nominee. Justice Kavanaugh was sworn in on October 6, 2018. Following his nomination but prior to his confirmation, he wrote this moving commentary in the WSJ:

I Am an Independent, Impartial JudgeYes, I was emotional last Thursday. I hope everyone can understand I was there as a son, husband and dad.

It provides an insight to the abominable techniques democrats employ as they attempt to vilify the character of an exemplary man. They revealed themselves as soulless.


Judicial activist Ketanji Jackson evades questions in SCOTUS hearing

March 24, 2022

Leftist local newspaper shows its bias headlining, “Jackson seems headed for high court confirmation”

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first black woman nominated to the Supreme Court, has come under intense questioning by Republican senators during her confirmation hearing. She is accused of being too lenient as a trial judge as she imposed light sentences in child pornography cases. In some cases, Jackson actually apologized to the child predators for imposing even absurdly light sentences.

Prior to the vacancy existing and while pressure was being applied to Justice Stephen Breyer to resign in order to give Joe Biden the ability to make this “historic” appointment, Biden injudiciously announced his intent to nominate a black woman to the high court. Biden made a mockery of the judicial process, effectively telling anyone else, regardless of their qualifications; they’d be wasting their time based on immutable characteristics over which they have no control.

U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz, (R-TX); Marsha Blackburn (R-TN); Josh Hawley, (R-MO); and Lindsey Graham, (R-SC), led the charge on the Senate Judiciary Committee, pointing to evidence Jackson was soft on crime, while a judge on the U.S. District Court in D.C. In typical leftist fashion, during the judicial hearing Jackson was unable to define the term, “woman,” absurdly claiming she’s not a biologist.

The senators underscored seven cases in which her sentences were below guidelines from the U.S. Sentencing Commission, which sets recommended sentences that judges must consider but are not obligated to impose. She also shortened recommended probation for these heinous child sexual abuse crimes that impose lifelong emotional scars. Jackson continually gave evasive answers to the questions posed to her for the lifetime Supreme Court appointment.

Since race appears to be the controlling factor, it’s worth remembering Republican President George H. W. Bush nominated brilliant black Republican Clarence Thomas to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court in 1991. He still serves with distinction (recent photo courtesy of the Supreme Court of the United States).

Republican Ronald Reagan broke precedence in 1981 by appointing Arizonan Sandra Day O’Connor as the first female justice.

Democrats who went ballistic over President Donald Trump’s three appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court — Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett — are now whining over the robust questioning of Jackson.


In another “first,” Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel resigns

March 22, 2022

Bowing to public, internal and high level political pressure from the governor and attorney general, bungling Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel has finally announced her resignation, effective Friday, March 25, 2022, at 5:00 p.m.

She stands as a tribute to “firsts.” Adel was heralded as the first female county attorney when she was appointed in 2019 to a vacancy created when her predecessor Bill Montgomery was selected to fill one of two newly created seats on the Arizona Supreme Court. Adel, a Republican, was elected to the post in 2020.

Allister Adel is also the first elected Maricopa County Attorney to resign the position, which occurred following being under a cloud of unparalleled damaging personal and professional behavior.

Unwilling to accept responsibility, she denigrated the prosecutors and supervisors at the nation’s third largest prosecutorial office, following the mishandling of nearly 200 criminal cases, while she was absent more than on the job, due to repeated in-and-out-of-state residential treatment programs for alcoholism, depression and eating disorders.

Reports of her interacting with administrative deputies while slurring her words during teleconferencing and being drunk on the job underscored the chaos of her time as county attorney, with all five division chiefs signing a letter calling for her to resign.

At long last, Allister Adel has stopped digging in her heels and acquiesced to multiple calls for her to resign. Previously, Adel bizarrely dropped 15 felony cases charging Black Lives Matter protesters with being part of a gang after they engaged in violence against police officers.

She responded by inviting them to quit if they didn’t like her style. Fortunately they prevailed and she’s leaving at the end of the week.


Incompetent MC Attorney Allister Adel should be disbarred

March 17, 2022

She’s referred to demands for her to step down as “a distraction” while failing to file nearly 200 criminal cases that have now been dropped

AZ Gov. Doug Ducey has joined the chorus of voices demanding accountability from Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel on mishandled cases. The admitted alcoholic with acknowledged anxiety and eating disorders spends more time away from the nation’s third largest prosecutor’s office than in it. Prior to her 2020 election, she was appointed by the Board of Supervisors in 2019 to fill a vacancy created when then-County Attorney Bill Montgomery was appointed to an unnecessarily expanded Supreme Court.

Though her credentials were slim, she filled the newly critical plumbing qualifications and was heralded as the first woman to hold the office, though barely squeaking in with 50.9% to her female opponent’s 49.0% when she ran. Among those who endorsed her were members of the same County Board of Supervisors who appointed her.

Adel has relapsed frequently and spent an inordinate amount of time in residential treatment facilities both in and out of Arizona. After falling on Nov. 2, 2020 election night and hospitalized for a brain bleed, she was unable to assume office full time until spring. Slurring her words while attempting to telecommunicate with staff, she blamed her difficulties on having a “couple of sips of wine.”

Despite numerous calls for her to step down, and the loss of confidence in her capabilities detailed in a letter signed by five division chiefs — the majority of whom are women — she refuses to budge, sending out this odd communiqué, dated February 15, 2022:

Team MCAO,

You’ve likely seen news reports today describing a letter I received from some of our division chiefs asking me to resign. I do not want these reports to create any uncertainty for you about the future of this office. As I said in the media statement [not included here on SRAZ], I have no plans to resign. While I am disappointed, I will not allow this distraction to deter the good work you are doing in the office. I applaud your service and look forward to continuing to work with you to serve this community.

Best,

Allister

A leftist masquerading as a Republican, her focus is diversity and inclusion with leniency toward criminals, previously dropping charges against violent anti-police rioters. Most recently she missed a filing deadline, allowing nearly 200 criminals to avoid prosecution and their victims seeing no accountability for the crimes perpetrated against them. To no one’s surprise, this incompetent alcoholic blamed the prosecutor’s supervisors rather than accepting responsibility for her inaction as Maricopa County Attorney. Though there is a link to the MCAO’s 2021 annual report on its website, it doesn’t work — much like the county attorney — who uses trendy equivocal language, saying she “reaches out” rather than contacts and talks about her “issues,” refusing to call them problems. Using Allister Adel’s preferred terminology; her “issues” have reached epic proportions and are negatively impacting the law-abiding residents of Maricopa County. It’s time for her to go.

With her blatant inability to lead the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, the AZ State Bar can and should cut to the chase and disbar her. There are at least 200 grounds.


MC Recorder Stephen Richer belies his name: Campaigns poorly

March 16, 2022

Republicrat Stephen Richer is running for reelection as Maricopa County Recorder. In preparation, the former democrat* who appeared on the front page of the far-left local newspaper standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Soros-supported democrat Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone — as reported by Law Enforcement Today — denouncing former President Donald Trump as “unhinged.” Richer, who obviously thinks conservatives are have limited retention spans, forgets we are symbolized by the elephant, known for its long memory.

Now, in a futile effort to sidle up to us, he includes the office’s 2021 Annual Report in which he whines about how tough his mundane paper-pushing job is, saying he “couldn’t have possibly predicted my first year in office—a global pandemic, Cyber Ninjas, international media attention, over 350 public records requests, death threats, wild allegations.” 

 Richer’s site also includes two ‘Donate’ buttons. Which we doubt will get much of a workout, unless dems take him to their collective bosom.

Richer’s political disconnect is apparent in the paragraph that includes complimentary links from the leftist Phoenix New Times, a raunchy weekly giveaway tabloid naming Richer, “Best Republican Politician of 2021,” and the barely clinging to life, Arizona Republic, singing Richer’s praises as “Arizonan of the Year.”  If Richer possessed even a token iota of conservatism, he would know that such praise directed at a politician with actual conservative credentials would never happen.

His election was hardly a runaway. Richer defeated foul-mouthed democrat Adrian Fontes by a razor-thin 50.1% to 49.8%. In the primary he defeated perpetually losing candidate Clair Van Steenwyk (known as “Van the Radio Man”) by a 15% margin, which should have been far greater.

If Richer runs for any political office in the future, it should be as the democrat he has shown himself to be. It will be a rare display of honesty.

*This article dates back 2008, when Stephen Richer was a student at the University of Chicago, arguing on the democrat side of the gay marriage debate team, and arrogantly congratulated the Republicans for not being homophobic and not using homophobic arguments or mimic mainstream anti-gay marriage arguments. “It was refreshing,” Stephen Richer said.

This was printed in the Chicago Maroon, the University’s student newspaper.
