AZ prosecutor has key role in Thursday’s SCOTUS hearing

September 26, 2018

GOP senators have selected Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to question Judge Brett Kavanaugh and the woman who has just recently accused the Supreme Court nominee of assaulting her when they were teenagers.

For his part, Judge Kavanaugh noted in a Monday letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, “Character assassination will not succeed,” and referred to the allegations as, “smears, pure and simple…which debase our public discourse.”

Mitchell has worked for the Maricopa County Attorney’s office in Phoenix for nearly three decades, and is the chief of the special victims division, which deals with sexual assault cases. In recruiting Mitchell to join their staff, the all-male panel of 11 Republican senators on the judiciary committee are taking an unusual step. They are turning to her to ask what are expected to be personal questions on live television — avoiding uncomfortable exchanges that could sway the public’s opinion about the session.

But how wise is this choice?  Prosecutors prosecute. The prosecutor’s task is to prove charges against a defendant beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law. However, their main task is to pursue justice. They are not independent arbiters. The senate is not a court of law. Judge Kavanaugh is not a defendant.

Know this. Whatever takes place and regardless of who poses the questions, this process is steeped in left-wing politics and the desire to deny President Donald Trump another appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Phil Boas asks God for deliverance from Pres. Trump

June 15, 2018

With FBI Director Christopher Wray’s new release of facts from the 500+ page Department of Justice Inspector General’s report regarding the “rooting out of bias” perpetrated against presidential candidate Donald Trump* from within the highest levels of government, examine the same type of anti-Trump bias displayed right here in Arizona. In this instance, we’re not referring to the contrived attempt at influence peddling by former president Bill Clinton as he boarded the plane of then-U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport as it appeared increasingly likely his wife would face criminal charges — which ultimately never materialized. They claimed to have discussed their grandchildren.

No. These hits don’t originate with D.C. power brokers or with a partisan former FBI Director shamefully exemplified by James Comey, who gave the deceitful Mrs. Clinton a pass for her countless illicit transgressions, but on the pages of the local newspaper where relentless attacks against candidate, and now President Donald Trump, remains the subject of multi-pronged, repetitive hits.

Who can forget Phil Boas? He’s the editorial page editor of the anorexic and failing Arizona Republic, better known for his loathsome dedication to bringing down 6-term Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio — Boas’ own father-in-law.

All Republicans — except pretenders John McCain and Jeff Flake — are worthy of this partisan goon’s savagery. He despises President Donald Trump with such visceral animosity that his editorial regarding the historic Singapore meeting Trump negotiated with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a leading despot on the world’s stage, is titled, “God help us if Trump solved N. Korea.”

It so rankles Boas that the businessman President who wrote, “The Art of the Deal,” just might have averted a global nuclear catastrophe, it leaves him editorially sputtering, “God help us,” numerous times in the editorial. Boas has lived to middle age without comprehending that those words are uttered by desperate people seeking divine intervention in hopeless situations. 

Those of us who comprehend the significance of such a meeting that has not previously occurred in any administration in nearly 75 years — since the Korean peninsula was divided following World War II — are awed by this extraordinary summit, that showcased cordiality from the leaders of both countries.

Rather than rejoicing or giving credit where it’s due, Phil Boas begrudgingly concedes, “It’s a long shot, but there is reason to believe Trump could actually pull this off. Kim could have caught the vision,“ he contemptuously writes, “and if he has, he could make Trump look like a genius.”

Followed by another plea, “God help us.”

The Hillary Clinton-endorsing liberals at the newspaper would rather have nukes aimed at the United States, Japan and South Korea than concede that President Trump should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.  Barack Obama received the honor simply for breathing. He was nominated within 12 days of taking the oath of office. Read the fascinating time line by attorney Tommy De Seno.

And, as far as the local newspaper? If you’re still one of the remaining subscribers, ditch it. Why support a publication that holds you and our president in contempt?

* As usual, the U.K.”s Daily Mail provides excellent in-depth coverage.


AZ MC GOP turns out in force prior to midterms

January 14, 2018

Republican Maricopa County elected precinct committeemen assembled over 1,400 strong (in person and by proxy) Saturday for their mandatory meeting, presided over by chairman Chris Herring. In addition to voting on bylaws amendments, resolutions and electing five members-at-large, the gathering provided a showcase for candidates and elected officials to see and be seen. Nominating petitions and pens got a workout, with earnest handshaking in abundance. This is the foreplay to the 2018 election cycle, which is guaranteed to be unlike any other in memory.

Arizona is staring both of its U.S. Senate seats in the eyes, as Jeff Flake, seeing his bottom-dragging polling numbers in the wake of his repeated attacks on President Trump, has decided to take himself out of the race, rather than be unceremoniously kicked to the curb by the electorate he’s enflamed with his sneering insolence directed at the Republican president. John McCain is battling what has been described as an “aggressive” form of brain cancer, first revealed in July 2017. He’s been undergoing debilitating treatment and few expect him to return to Washington.

 U.S. Rep. Trent Franks (CD 8) on the heels of an abrupt retirement was no where in sight, but was the recipient of hearty applause as District 4 County Supervisor Clint Hickman reminded those in attendance that he deserved thanks for his years of service.  At last count, Arizona was closing in on two senate vacancies and one in the U.S. House prompting numerous candidates to announce.

 Taking to the podium were Gov. Doug Ducey, U.S. Reps. Andy Biggs (CD-5), Paul Gosar (CD-4) and David Schweikert (CD-6). County Attorney Bill Montgomery, County Assessor Paul Peterson, County School Superintendent, Steve Watson, and Chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, Steve Chucri all gave speeches — strictly limited to 2 minutes. Clerk of the Superior Court, Michael Jeanes, surprised many with his announced intention to retire after two decades, effective Feb. 5.  Gov. Ducey will appoint his successor.

Schmoozing outside the auditorium, were Martha McMcSally, who bungled into the senate race with her bizarre Friday announcement telling the GOP to “grow a pair of ovaries.” Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, also newly announced in the senate race, was frequently surrounded by groupies and reporters.  Conservative Dr. Kelli Ward maintained a dominant presence, with abundant signs and volunteers circulating nominating petitions.

But the most telling segment, taking the pulse on the mood of the day was the speech by Member-at-Large candidate Joe Neglia, who tossed the routine, “I will work hard for you” speech in favor of asking the assembled committeemen if they were happy with Sen. Jeff Flake’s donation to the Democrat in the Alabama senate race, if they liked Flake pushing for the confirmation of an Obama nominated Democrat to the U.S. Supreme Court, and if they liked Jeff Flake routinely tearing down Pres. Trump.  His questions were met with loud replies of, “No!!” The same negative response followed his question concerning John McCain voting with the Democrats to retain Obamacare. Neglia followed that by questioning the silence on these treacherous acts from the state GOP chairman.

Joe Neglia won — both in winning a MAL seat and in capturing the frustration of political conservatives who loyally volunteer for the Republican Party.


MC Recorder Adrian Fontes tells voter to F-himself

November 3, 2017

You wouldn’t be alone if you’ve never heard of Adrian Fontes. The lawyer and political novice is Maricopa County‘s classy new Recorder, winning the election by a single percentage point over Helen Purcell who held the post for nearly 30 years. The office oversees elections and records documents.

Fontes not only wants to reconstruct the elections process within one of the nation’s largest counties, he is paring down polling places, sending all registered voters a mail-in ballot — regardless of whether or not they requested one and is hard at work reconfiguring voting precincts, consolidating them for what many believe to be nefarious purposes — giving the edge to Democrats.

On his bio page on the Recorder’s Office website, the word Democrat, in bold face type, follows his name as the third word on the site. He also informs Maricopa County voters that he is an “avid supporter of his community.”  Exactly which community is not defined, though Maricopa County, the fourth most populous county in the United States is far too large to be considered “a community.“  The fact that he plays in a mariachi band, could be a clue.

But it’s his mouth that is putting the liberal on the map. When a voter complained on Facebook about encountering difficulties with the ballot and mentioned that his mother was also having problems, Fontes, the father of three young daughters, blew a hole through the civility that voters have come to expect from the Recorder’s Office. He told the man, a fellow Democrat running for the state legislature, he could go “F-himself.” He then backed that response up by saying, “My response was not only appropriate but deserved,” saying he was defending the work of his staff.

After his coarseness made the news, Fontes later apologized to the candidate for the crude response. He said he took matters too far, and said he will try to do better. “Try” is a bit too iffy to count on from a boorish hothead like Adrian Fontes.

During his campaign, Fontes claimed to want to make the county recorder’s office “nonpartisan,” either by taking the vote from the people by making the elected post an appointed position or by deceptively concealing the party affiliation of candidates as the City of Phoenix does.

Since the word “Democrat” follows his name on his office bio, that pre-election blather has obviously gone by the wayside. It falls in the same category as open borders/amnesty proponent John McCain deceptively pledging tocomplete the danged fence.”


A new tough guy Dem for the AZ Republic to endorse

October 27, 2017

Redeem Green Robinson has got a lot on his plate. The 28-year-old Democrat is a candidate for the state Senate in Legislative District 30 in the 2018 Primary Election.  He’s also charged with assault and criminal damage originating from a fight earlier this year with his now former-girlfriend.

During the 2016 election cycle, Paul Penzone, who had previously roughed up his then-wife, won the Arizona Republic’s endorsement for Maricopa County Sheriff.  Incumbent Sheriff Joe Arpaio, happily married to his wife Ava for six decades was on the newspaper’s hit list, taking slings and arrows on a daily basis for enforcing the law. Popular Arpaio was elected to an unprecedented 6-four-year terms.

The Arizona Republic endorsed Penzone, whose campaign was funded by open borders globalist George Soros who funneled $2 million to Penzone. It didn’t hurt that Penzone, using the strings-attached-cash, bought full page ads in the failing Republic where the bottom line matters more than integrity. Soon after Penzone was elected, he showed his gratitude to billionaire Soros by referring to illegal aliens as “guests.”


PRESIDENT TRUMP PARDONS SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO

August 25, 2017

Former Maricopa County Sheriff remains  a hero to many

President Donald Trump, fresh off a visit to Arizona on Tuesday evening, has announced that he has pardoned longtime Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.  The former sheriff who was reelected to six four-year terms was found guilty of a misdemeanor criminal contempt conviction in federal court. The charges, which many viewed as the culmination of a witch hunt, stemmed from his office’s enforcement of the law relating to illegal immigration.

Sheriff Arpaio had been denied the jury trial he and his lawyers requested and the verdict was handed down by Federal District Judge Susan Bolton who served as judge and jury in the case.

A statement issued by the White House Friday night said, “Today, President Donald J. Trump granted a Presidential pardon to Joe Arpaio, former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona.”

President Trump hinted that the  pardon was forthcoming at the Phoenix rally Tuesday night.

The President previously referred to Arpaio as a “a great American patriot” who has done “a lot in the fight against illegal immigration.”

At the Phoenix event the president asked the massive crowd of supporters: “Do the people in this room like Sheriff Joe?” His question was greeted by cheers and applause from the thousands of people who filled the Phoenix Convention Center to capacity. “You know what, I’ll make a prediction: I think he’s going to be just fine,” Trump said. “But I won’t do it tonight, because I don’t want to cause any controversy.”

The statement issued by the White House enumerated Sheriff Arpaio’s lifelong commitment to the law:

“Arpaio’s life and career, which began at the age of 18 when he enlisted in the military after the outbreak of the Korean War, exemplify selfless public service. After serving in the Army, Arpaio became a police officer in Washington, D.C. and Las Vegas, NV and later served as a Special Agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), formerly the Bureau of Narcotics. After 25 years of admirable service, Arpaio went on to lead the DEA’s branch in Arizona.

“In 1992, the problems facing his community pulled Arpaio out of retirement to return to law enforcement. He ran and won a campaign to become Sheriff of Maricopa County. Throughout his time as Sheriff, Arpaio continued his life’s work of protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is now eighty-five years old, and after more than fifty years of admirable service to our Nation, he is worthy candidate for a Presidential pardon.”

We couldn’t agree more!


Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio exhibits more integrity than foes

June 24, 2017

In anticipation of his upcoming trial, the failing Arizona Republic is thrusting a multi-pronged pitchfork in Joe Arpaio’s direction.  Dissipated columnist EJ Montini gloats in an on-line video in which he appears to be unwell. His counterpart, Laurie Roberts leaps onboard with her own spew of negativity. Political cartoonist Steve Benson, who devoted years to churning out contemptuous criticism towards Arpaio has now turned his focus to President Trump, another Republican to despise and attempt to bring down.

This single sentence sums up the newspaper’s bias: “Joe Arpaio — the man, not the lawman — is the defendant in a federal criminal trial scheduled to begin in Phoenix on Monday.”

Arpaio, who fittingly celebrated his 85th birthday which occurs on Flag Day, faces a criminal contempt trial on allegations that he violated a federal judge’s orders to stop enforcing federal immigration law. Joe Arpaio, the son of Italian immigrants, has obviously never been against immigration. Illegal hordes invading our country, using counterfeit or stolen ID to facilitate their lives here are not immigrants.

What you need to remember: Joe Arpaio, an Army veteran and career lawman who rose from a Washington DC police officer to worldwide assignments within the Drug Enforcement Administration, culminating with heading the Arizona DEA office prior to initially running for Sheriff in 1992 — was doing the job the citizens of Maricopa County repeatedly elected him to do.

Democrat Paul Penzone, the Soros supported leftist candidate, who succeeded Arpaio is working to eradicate any semblance of the last 24 years where Sheriff Arpaio was the popular chief law enforcement professional in Maricopa County. The liberal newspaper, which supports open borders and amnesty, led the charge against him. Shamefully the editorial policy is overseen by editor Phil Boas, who is Arpaio’s son-in-law. Boas claims he recuses himself from coverage of Arpaio.

George Soros, a muti-billionaire, is a socialist who ultimately dropped $2 million into Penzone’s campaign as he has been funding liberal candidates across the nation in an attempt to alter the U.S. Justice system. Politico carries the shocking exposé.
