Pres. Trump’s legal shakedown from Dem DC judge

May 21, 2019

Obama appointed Judge upholds Dem subpoena for president’s tax records

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta issued this 41-page order in favor of the U.S. House of Representatives Ways and Means Oversight sub-committee* seeking President Donald Trump’s personal and business tax records from his accounting firm, Mazars USA LLP.

The flamboyant opinion filled with inflammatory quotes, opens with an 1860 statement of protest from President James Buchanan which Mehta parallels to President Trump, writing, “Some 160 years later, President Donald J. Trump has taken up the fight of his predecessor.” Mehta gives cover to the partisan committee writing, it “has shown that it is not engaged in a pure fishing expedition for the President’s financial records,” disingenuously adding that “the documents might assist Congress in passing laws and performing other core functions.”

“Might”? In Mehta’s convoluted, partisan thinking, that meets a sufficient legal standard.

Judge Mehta also denied a request to stay his decision pending an appeal. Additionally, Mehta provocatively asserted that Congress can investigate President Trump without beginning formal impeachment proceedings.

These are the Judges on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia:

District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan (appointed by Bill Clinton: 1994)

District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly (Bill Clinton: 1997)

District Judge James E. Boasberg (Barack Obama: 2011)

District Judge Amy Berman Jackson (Barack Obama: 2011)

District Judge Rudolph Contreras (Barack Obama: 2012)

District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson (Barack Obama: 2013)

District Judge Christopher R. Cooper (Barack Obama: 2014)

District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan (Barack Obama: 2014)

District Judge Randolph D. Moss (Barack Obama: 2014)

District Judge Amit P. Mehta (Barack Obama: 2014)

Socialist $oros, MC Sheriff Paul Penzone ties exposed

May 16, 2019

Multi-billionaire Soros, a dedicated Socialist, has long been behind organizations that fund leftwing candidates, causes and groups*

A disturbing article published in Law Enforcement Today inextricably links the election of Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone to his high dollar campaign funder, socialist multi-billionaire George Soros. Titled, “Is Maricopa County Controlled by George Soros?”  the must read report pulls no punches regarding Soros’ extreme agenda. Penzone’s Chief of Staff and Special Counsel, Stephanie Fleischman Cherny, who has direct ties to Soros, the ACLU and La Raza. wields extraordinary power in the office.      

During the 2016 election cycle, Soros’ radical tentacles extended over the entire country, as he attempted to exert his extremist influence liberalizing the criminal justice system in county attorney’s races (called district attorneys in some jurisdictions outside of Arizona) and law enforcement arenas. In 2016 SRAZ posted,“By George! McCain & Hillary have a lot in common,” detailing Soros’ disturbing relationships with John McCain and Hillary Clinton.

Soros’ presence was definitely felt in the high profile Maricopa County Sheriff’s race where he shoveled $millions into defeating 6-term Sheriff Joe Arpaio. His influence was also evident in the Maricopa County Attorney’s race as he targeted Bill Montgomery, who was reelected despite Soros‘ efforts. Working under the radar, through his numerous networks, he channeled $millions into national campaigns, an effort which is expected to intensify in the future due to determined planning and vigorous candidate recruitment.

Chicago’s Cook County top prosecutor Kim Foxx — who dropped 16 felony counts against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett following the revelation that he had staged an elaborate hoax hate-crime attack against himself to generate publicity — was elected with $408,000 donated by Soros. Foxx had little to recommend her for the position other than the fact that she was suitable for doing the billionaire’s bidding. She lacked trial experience and was hit with nearly $20,000 in fines for errors in campaign finance filings, but Soros’ money worked like a charm…as it did for Sheriff Paul Penzone.

Soros, who disdains national borders found another willing cohort in Paul Penzone. Shortly after being elected sheriff, Penzone referred to illegal alien invaders as “guests.”

Crisis politics rules at leftist AZ Republic

May 3, 2019

Continuing invasion by illegal aliens on our southern border doesn’t meet crisis standard but everything else does

Recent issues of the failing Arizona Republic feature skewed headlines that fit its leftwing agenda. Everything is a crisis, but its own dilapidating health on which it doesn’t report. Stock prices for Gannett Co, Inc., it’s parent company, continue to plummet as it struggles to fend off a hostile takeover by MNG, a newspaper conglomerate. Gannett’s answer is that it’s pursuing “a digital transformation” (read an end to far more costly to produce hard copies) and “quality journalism,” long known to be comatose at the Hillary-endorsing local newspaper.

Sample full page report headlines reveal the identity politics that undergirds its mission:

“Arizona Faces an Imprisonment Crisis, but the burden is not equally shared in all of our communities. “ The thrust of the article is that “people of color” are incarcerated more frequently, and for longer terms.

Missing is the fact that juries, who have weighed the evidence in criminal trials, decide the fate of defendants. Many are recidivists, who disproportionately commit increasingly serious crimes.

Ditto the entire front page crisis coverage headlined “CLASS DISPARITY,” which the newspaper’s own analysis indicated black students are suspended at higher rates from Arizona schools. The Republic would have readers believe the students are suspended based on race rather than behavior. The following day, a Page One story asserted, “School discipline varies wildly —  depending on districts.” Missing is the fact that problem students, who deprive their classmates of education, are often in districts where education is not prioritized at home.

Another crisis report carries the headline, “State aims to stem flood of evictions.” There is now a movement to keep people in properties for extended periods after missing rent payments. No word on how the property owners, who have responsibilities of their own to meet, are going to fare when renters no longer feel paying for their basic needs is a priority. There are currently utility payment assistance programs and food stamps now known as SNAP. Free breakfast and lunch programs are available at schools, even in the summer months. Health care is never denied.

Gone are incentives to provide basics for yourself or your own family — a lesson taught to succeeding generations.

Leftwingism is on a roll at the Hillary-Clinton endorsing newspaper, which explains why it is failing in a state that gave all of its electoral votes to 2016 Republican candidate Donald Trump — whom we now proudly call “Mr. President.”


Democrats’ bizarre bond with death

April 23, 2019

Earlier this month, Democrat New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy bragged about signing legislation legalizing doctor assisted suicide, becoming the eighth state to casually devalue life. In signing the bill, Murphy, a self-described “lifelong, practicing Catholic,” stated that while he was aware the Church opposed assisted suicide he was signing the bill into law regardless.

The bill was co-sponsored by Assemblyman John Burzichelli and Senator Nick Scutari, both….you guessed it…Democrats.

New Jersey joins other assisted suicide-condoning states with Democrat governors including California, Colorado, Hawaii, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.  Vermont is the stand alone with a Republican chief executive to sign assisted suicide legislation.  

 It’s a slippery slope. Newly-born life has been shockingly devalued by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, another Democrat, who condones infanticide via post-birth abortion saying it‘s a decision to be made by a mother and her provider.  Northam, a medical doctor, is even more reprehensible, since his pre-political career has been as a pediatric neurologist. Although he condones death for innocent babies, he opposes the death penalty for the most horrific criminals, who have committed capital offenses.

Watch this astonishing video of Northam’s interview on CNS News.

Appearing on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor,” program Northam defended the 40-week abortion bill saying, “If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

New York’s leftist Gov. Andrew Cuomo celebrated signing into law abortion up until birth. Watch this Fox and Friends video featuring New York Archbishop, Cardinal Timothy Dolan discussing how Democrats changed their previous abortion rhetoric from “safe, legal and rare” to what has now morphed into “dangerous, enforced and frequent.”

 Cuomo has gone to the mat banning single use of plastic bags, which he prioritizes over human life.


Smollett aided beating the rap by Obama, $oros connections

March 28, 2019

The Chicago Tribune details the double standard for celebrity Jussie Smollett in what turned out to be a hoax rather than the “hate crime” he reported to police. The headline from the local newspaper blasts, “Chicago police files on Jussie Smollett investigation show behind-the-scenes maneuvers.”

The back story is even more despicable than his fraudulent tale concocted to boost his salary for the televised series in which he participated.

By all accounts, the police work — including thousands of hours diverted from real crimes in the war zone of Chicago — was diligent and impeccably carried out.  Smollett, black and gay, alleged that he had been a crime victim carried out by two men who bound and poured bleach over him.  And what a surprise, the assailants who just happened to be wearing President Trump’s MAGA (Make America Great Again) hats yelled racial slurs at Smollett. It plays out like a script, right down to a threatening letter that was sent to Smollett after he wasn’t getting the reaction he desired. He was behind that, too. The men, Nigerian brothers, were found to have cashed a $3,500 partial payment check from Smollett. The incident supposedly occurred at 2 a.m. as Smollett was walking back to his apartment from a Subway sandwich shop —- assuring there would be no witnesses.

Problems arose when surveillance tapes showed a much different scenario than the one described by actor Smollett. In the end the 16-count indictment handed down by a Chicago Grand Jury meant nothing. He ultimately was sentenced to a couple of days of community service logging it in with Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition. That, and forfeiture of his $10,000 bond was bizarrely enough to satisfy prosecutors in Chicago.

The most riveting aspect of the contemptible saga is the chain of “angels” who shone their purifying light on this fake victim of a sham hate crime specifically constructed with a vicious anti-Trump angle. Former First Lady Michelle Obama had a hand in this legal debacle. Her onetime chief of staff, Tina Tchen, also a lawyer, personally contacted the Illinois State’s Attorney to put in a good word for Smollett, exchanging  text messages (here and here) with prosecutor Kim Foxx before charges were dropped. In one of the messages, Tchen urged Foxx to convince Chicago police to hand the investigation over to the FBI, where Obama still had sway. Replete with trendy liberal speak the exchanges are filled with “reaching out.” Liberals don’t contact one another. Neither do they have problems. Liberals have “issues.”

Messages on this level are compelling stuff if you’re a Democrat in Barack Obama’s hometown.

Foxx was a former chief aide to Cook County Board president before she caught the eye of Socialist billionaire George Soros  He’s also a player, funneling a reported* two $300,000 donations to a Super PAC to support Kim Foxx’ campaign, an additional $333,000 personal contribution, plus $75,000 after she won —- all in his quest to realign the criminal justice system in his skewed image. He’s also funded Secretary of State campaigns and others responsible for election oversight. Soros, who disdains national borders, dumped money into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s race ensuring leftist, wife-beater Paul Penzone had sufficient funding to take out popular, 6-term Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Immediately after being sworn in, and right on cue, Penzone referred to illegal invaders as “guests.”

When Kim Foxx was elected in 2016, she made this statement: “I ran for this office to make sure that we had a criminal justice system people can believe in. That’s my duty.”

Apparently her “duty” cap fell off as she raced to appease the Obama’s and fulfill her obligation to George Soros.

Dying AZ Republic still fronts for undead McCain

March 24, 2019

It’s no secret the ever shrinking — both in staff and content —- Arizona Republic is on the skids. Its parent company Gannett Co. Inc. with stock prices continually falling, has been the subject of a hostile takeover bid by outside investors known for gutting newspapers. Recently Gannett, which owns nearly 100 other newspapers including USA Today, fired Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Steve Benson in a cost-cutting measure. Its last resort is to go all digital, which it knows will result in cancellations it can ill afford. The newspaper admitted cancellations spiked following its Hillary Clinton endorsement.

A major problem for the Arizona Republic is its propensity to continually insult its remaining readers. In a state that gave all of its electoral votes to Donald Trump in 2016, and where as president he remains popular, the newspaper stays bonded to its anti-Trump agenda. Its latest effort, headlined, “John McCain and Arizona likely to remain a Donald Trump obsession,” begins with these words:

President Donald Trump’s barrage of attacks on the late Sen. John McCain over the past week landed with a thud in many quarters.

Exactly which “quarters” was left unstated. Like the proverbial elephant in the room, the Republic omits the obvious, as it slathers praise on the less than exemplary McCain and omits his key role in trying to undermine President Donald Trump by acting as a facilitator of the salacious and fraudulent “dossier” supposedly linking Trump to Russian collusion. The 675 day investigation by Special Council Robert Mueller, concluded Friday with no indictments brought against the president or members of his family.

Exhibiting his widely known classy style, McCain defended his actions with these words: “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell.” This tirade came despite the fact that he knew the dossier aimed at discrediting President Trump was funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The Arizona Republic’s Sunday front page report — again marginalizing President Trump — quotes Rachel Bitecofer, a professor of political science who “specializes in campaigns and polarization,” at the unknown Christopher Newport University in Virginia:

“Trump will likely spend time during the 2020 presidential campaign in Arizona talking about his long-promised border wall, and he’s ignored pleas from Republicans in the past to not discuss his views on McCain. He gets into those rallies and he just can’t help himself.”

The newspaper omits the fact that Bitecofer is the author of a decidedly anti-Trump book titled, “The Unprecedented 2016 Presidential Election.” This is the bizarre summary of the book:

This book explains the 2016 presidential election through a strategic focus. In the primaries both parties faced challenges from insurgent outsiders riding waves of populist fervor in the electorate, but only the Democrats were able to steer the nomination into the hands of their establishment favorite. Why weren’t Republican elites able to stop Donald Trump from hijacking their party’s nomination?  Why did Hillary Clinton come up short on Election Day despite the fact that nearly everyone expected her to win after her opponent ran a haphazard campaign plagued by scandal after scandal? The research presented here argues that the Clinton campaign conducted the nearly perfect execution of the wrong electoral strategy, costing her the Electoral College and her chance to become America’s first female president.

The essence of President Trump’s animus towards McCain is not shrouded in mystery. The envious and malevolent McCain ran for president twice and lost both times. Donald Trump attained what McCain never could, and McCain was more than willing to engage in any nefarious actions to take Trump down for his achievement. Trump’s popularity remains strong because he is fulfilling the campaign promises he made to voters. This is not rocket science.


Desperate Dems embrace NPV absurdity

March 22, 2019

The National Popular Vote has emerged among the latest schemes of Democrat politicians. They are also enamored with open borders and lowering the voting age to 16. Now that marijuana is mainstreamed, desperate Dems see a clear pathway to winning elections…the Constitution be damned.

Donald Trump’s 2018 sweeping presidential victory, which dazed the Democrats like a direct hit of a lightening bolt has made them eager to explore every absurdity to gain control. If it takes mind numbed teens, illiterate in American history and our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, who have never paid a bill or taxes to fulfill their dream, Dems are onboard giving them the vote. Obliterating Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and allowing all comers to invade the United States is an integral part of the plan, since they will be low hanging fruit ripe for Democrat picking. Why should citizenship matter? Democrat candidates are also hoping to pack the Supreme Court by inflating the number of leftist justices. Read the history of that scam attempted by Democrat President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937 in the last two paragraphs of this post.

In 2016 Breitbart News headlined, “MoveOn.org Petition Demands: ‘Abolish the Electoral College,” which laid the groundwork for this George Soros backed movement.

Our Founders specifically included the Electoral Vote to forestall the inherent dangers of what James Madison called “the tyranny of the majority.” This Heritage Foundation commentary, Preventing “The Tyranny of the Majority by Edwin J. Feulner is listed as a two minute read. You won’t spend a more enlightening two minutes today.

Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution grants the power to elect the president and vice president to the states through the system known as the Electoral College. Under the Constitution, the highest-ranking U.S. officials elected by the direct popular vote of the people are the governors of the states.

The Electoral College gives smaller and rural states with lower populations an equal voice. If the popular vote alone decided elections, presidential candidates would have no need to visit those states or consider the needs of rural residents in their policy platforms. The Electoral College dynamics require candidates to get votes from multiple states — large and small — ensuring that the president addresses the needs of the entire country. America’s Founders, in their wisdom, also wanted the Electoral College system to enforce the concept of federalism — the division and sharing of powers between the state and national governments.

There are 538 possible electoral votes. 270 electoral votes are required for a candidate to win the electoral college vote. This was the 2016 election breakdown. With the National Popular Vote, Hillary Clinton would be sitting in the Oval Office.

Declared and still exploring Democrat presidential candidates might be adversaries, but they are unified in their desire to gut our Constitution. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, (D-Mass) and Bob O’Rourke, (D-TX); support doing away with the Electoral College. Sen. Cory Booker, (D-N.J); has expressed a desire to increase the number of justices on the Supreme Court and term limit them. Bob also supports expanding the high court.  Sen. Kamala Harris, (D-CA) supports uncontrolled illegal immigration and free education and healthcare for all. Socialist Bernie Sanders (S-VT) ditto. Like her fellow candidates, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, (D- NY) is for whatever sucker punches the GOP and takes out President Trump.

The U.S. Constitution provides for a separation of powers, dividing the federal government into three distinct branches to ensure no individual or group will have too much power: Legislative (makes laws), Executive (carries out laws) and Judicial (interprets laws) — operate independently.

It should be abundantly clear by now that Democrats have no use for the Constitution.
