Richer makes AZ GOP poorer, ditto Supervisor Bill Gates

September 30, 2021

Gateway Pundit (GP) has once again focused on Arizona in a revealing post titled, “Never-Trump Group Led by Bill Kristol Releases New Anti-Trump Ad Starring Angry Maricopa County RINOs (VIDEO).” The video carries a tagline, “Defending Democracy Together. “

An internet search reveals it is a Soros-connected entity, according to this Washington Free Beacon article. And Bill Kristol? He was outed by the Federalist as having been a democrat for years.

The article is linked here to provide more information regarding the nefarious big money group intent on negatively impacting our elections. Arizona is but one of the states where deceptive ad buys will run in order to undermine our election system.

Gateway Pundit writes, “The ad features two prominent Maricopa [elected officials] County Supervisor Bill Gates and Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, who both claim to be Republicans.”

You must find time to read this crucial information, revealing the high dollar deceit being peddled by the far left, and the involvement of phony Republicans Stephen Richer, and Maricopa County Recorder and Bill Gates, (no, not that one) a member of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, who both deny any semblance of fraud in the last election, despite evidence to the contrary. Facts don’t fit into the parameters of their scheme. In a tweet embedded under his emboldened name above, Gates claimed to be receiving “death threats.”


Maricopa County’s election audit results do not instill confidence

September 25, 2021

While the results of the Maricopa County election audit appear to confirm the election results, numerous other questions regarding the 2.1 million ballots, were raised by Senate President Karen Fann.

Sen. Fann sent this letter* to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich specifically detailing areas of concern in the current voting process and requesting a formal investigation. Brnovich, however, is in campaign mode, eyeing a U.S. Senate seat, making it a certainty Sen. Fann’s concerns will go nowhere fast. He previously incurred the wrath of former President Trump, who called his tepid efforts, “lackluster.” That sentiment will come back to haunt Brnovich, who will need Republican support to put wheels on his campaign. Brnovich’s Rasputin-like beard will turn white before that will happen in a crowded field.

Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel isn’t a viable backup. She’s been in local and out-of-state drug and alcohol treatment facilities since election night Nov. 3, 2020, spending more time out of the office than in it. Claiming she also suffers for stress and anxiety, she asks we respect her privacy. That would be easier to do if she resigned and let the chief deputy assume the responsibilities of the office in the fourth most populous county in the nation, which is also a border state with the accompanying criminality.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors have been outed by Steve Chucri one of their own members, who has now announced his impending November resignation, after being caught on a surreptitious tape saying, “I think it was done through dead people voting. I think it was multifaceted.”

When allegations of tens of thousands of ballots cast illegally, including multiple precincts having more votes counted than residents, someone in a position of authority should have had the ability or interest in promoting integrity in the basis of our republic. What we have are self-serving politicians, too many of whom are unable to function in the jobs they arrogantly ran for. The only election they care about is their own.

The Gateway Pundit has been the reliable source for information on the audit. In this report it lists the numerous discrepancies found in the audit. Those seeking truth will never find a shred of it in the failing, Hillary-endorsing local newspaper.

AZ election audit info the local news ignores

September 21, 2021

As Arizonans and concerned Americans across the broad expanse of our nation await the results of the 2020 Maricopa County election audit scheduled to be released this Friday afternoon Sept. 24, 2021, we take our readers directly to another Gateway Pundit post, which once again sheds light on the audit.

Maricopa County Supervisor Steve Chucri Caught in Leaked Recording: The Maricopa County Voting Machine Company Audit and Recount – “Was Pretty BULLSH*T By The Way” (AUDIO)

Throughout the meeting with members of We The People AZ Alliance, Chucri ripped his colleagues for not standing up for voting rights or cooperating with the fact-finding Arizona Senate.

The Hillary-endorsing local newspaper would rather shrivel and die than report this information. After her stunning defeat, it stopped listing endorsements, although everything within its pages is skewed left. If you read nothing else today, read the linked Gateway Pundit report.

Keep in mind the final vote reported on Nov. 3, 2020 was 49.39% for Biden and 49.09% for President Trump. Of course there are questions.


Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel’s implausible quickie cure

September 18, 2021

After making this September 10, 2021 announcement that she was seeking residential treatment for alcoholism, anxiety and eating disorders, Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel now says she’s ready to return to the rigors of heading the nation’s third largest prosecutor’s office.

A week is record time to deal with not one, but three, major problems. It’s not unusual for residential rehab programs to extend from three to six months or up to a year. Adel initially received treatment in a California facility, followed by a local rehab.

Allister Adel might have hastened her decision after the leftist local newspaper that approves of her lenient policies called for her to step down, even after she hung a seasoned prosecutor out to dry to burnish her own image and curry media favor. Still editorial columnist Elvia Diaz, cuts Adel no slack, four days after going into treatment, as she called for Allister Adel to  “go —for good.”  Diaz accused Adel of charging too many “people of color.” ignoring the fact that they are charged because they disproportionately commit crimes. Diaz also judges the lawyers in the office by their skin pigment, claiming there are too many who are “white.” Although Adel is a Republican, her bent is decidedly left. But that’s not enough for Diaz who wants DNA to trump all other considerations.

After initially being elected Nov. 2, 2021, and suffering a brain bleed that night, Adel returned from medical leave, four months later, in February. She has been absent from the office she is supposed to be leading more than she’s been there.

Allister Adel needs to be challenged by an experienced conservative who will actually show up for the job and return professionalism to this very important office. In the interim, she should concentrate on her recovery and turn the duties of the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office over to her chief deputy and do away with the drama.


MC Attorney Allister Adel finally admits truth, seeks treatment

September 13, 2021

Takes another leave from job

This September 10, 2021 statement from Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel leaves unanswered more questions than it answers. Her career has been so iffy, it’s uncertain how long the statement will remain available.

A similar message was sent to the staff at the County Attorney’s office:

Dear MCAO Family,

The work we do at this office is hard and I am not immune to its effects. Below is a statement that will be released to the press today but I wanted to personally share the message about my recent struggles. Seeking professional help to deal with stress and anxiety is nothing to be ashamed of. Those who are suffering in silence should be able to ask for help. As a society, we must talk about it.

As County Attorney, I have focused this office on implementing programs and policies to assist those in the criminal justice system suffering from substance abuse disorder. I have revised plea policies to reflect a treatment-first approach. I have championed a home detention program for individuals facing misdemeanor DUIs. We have created and implemented a robust diversion program grounded in evidence-based treatment and eliminated financial barriers previously associated with this opportunity.

Stress and anxiety do not discriminate based on age, gender, race, or socioeconomic status.  I am fortunate to have access to resources and a supportive network of friends and family to help me address my issues. I encourage those in this office who may be struggling with similar issues to reach out to supervisors or take advantage of the resources afforded to us as county employees. You are not alone.

Thank you for your patience as I navigate this path.

Best,

Allister Adel

Maricopa County Attorney

In a much heralded election as the county’s first female county attorney, Adel was originally appointed to the position Oct. 3, 2019 by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors when then-current County Attorney Bill Montgomery was named to the newly expanded AZ Supreme Court by Gov. Doug Ducey in a head scratching, uncalled-for action. Ducey put two new justices in place, neither of whom have applicable trial court experience, since one came from a libertarian “think tank” and the other from an elected executive position.

Allister Adel, the mother of two young sons, generated sympathy on election night Nov. 3, 2020 when she was hospitalized for a “brain bleed” said to be caused by a fall. Initially she said she had a blood clotting disorder, which was false, although alcohol does thin the blood. Excessive amounts thin it even more. Her duplicity was perpetrated by the leftwing Arizona Republic which had disdain for what it referred to as, “Bill Montgomery’s hard-line administration.”

The prosecutor’s office ran without its newly elected administrator as she recovered. No reason for the fall was given.  Now we have a more accurate idea of what caused her instability. Falling off a step stool doesn’t require residential treatment.

Adel, who campaigned as a conservative rightly caught flak for dismissing charges against violent anti-police rioters, who broke windows and looted Scottsdale Fashion Mall, threw cement blocks at officers, damaged police vehicles, set fires in the showroom of the adjacent Mercedes dealership and then attempted to destroy the Phoenix Police Department and downtown businesses. The thugs used the death of repeatedly incarcerated George Floyd 1700 miles away in Minneapolis, to assault Phoenix police, and faced numerous charges including aggravated assault on officers, criminal damage, unlawful assembly, rioting, resisting arrest and obstructing a roadway. 

Protests against the police have not been isolated incidents and nationally efforts to defund the police have gained momentum, resulting in officers resigning and crime rates rising. Yet these are the people Maricopa County Attorney Adel regards as worthy of having their charges dropped. Violent rioters do not respond to weakness. It emboldens them. Allister Adel’s focus was not on prosecution of criminals, but on “diversity and inclusion.” SRAZ ended that post with these words: “She should not have been identified by her plumbing, but by her leftward bent.”


RINOcrat, egotist Recorder Stephen Richer “dost protest too much”

August 20, 2021

After receiving a gargantuan 38-page emailed “letter” from problem-plagued Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, the legendary quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet rings all too true as it epitomizes insincere overacting.

Stephen Richer, the novice politician who appeared to have a bright future within the Arizona Republican Party irreparably damaged himself with his insulting invectives hurled at President Donald Trump, referring to him as a “liar“ and “unhinged.”  Make no mistake; he was also aiming his wrath at loyal Trump supporters. His tirade rated a front page headline accompanying an oversize photo, unmistakably displaying his value to the leftwing local newspaper. The Maricopa County election audit, which he regards with contempt, has been emulated by other jurisdictions nationally, a fact ignored by Richer.

While Donald Trump can’t vote against Richer, Maricopa County conservatives can, which is why he is trying to inveigle himself back into the GOP camp.

Unable to make a point, the lawyer who should be better trained to clearly state his case, instead sent out a self-serving missive to GOP activists, bearing the lengthy title, “Dear Arizona Republicans: Let‘s do this right.  Let‘s build confidence. Let‘s move forward”  Yet, digging in his heels, he included this gem, “I stand by everything I’ve said over the past three months.”

We are not including the link, though Richer appears to have sent it out to the immediate world. If you didn’t receive it, it’s likely your dog did.

It’s doubtful many will be inclined to spend time reading much more than the cover letter, since 38-pages is a bizarre contrivance. Most of us have better ways to spend our time, although it’s clear Richer is more driven by egocentric urgency.

SRAZ previously wrote, “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.”

We stand by that vantage point.

Although Republicans rejoiced when Richer trounced single-term democrat Adrian Fontes, his election was hardly a runaway. Richer defeated 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. Richer’s current term ends January 2025. If he dares run again, he needs a reputable GOP primary challenger. It’s critically important.


Republicans doing the work of dems?

July 19, 2021

Isn’t this what the left always counts on?

The Epoch Times carries a must-read report titled, “Arizona Senate President: State’s 11 Electors Cannot Be Recalled After Maricopa Audit.” Only four days earlier (July 14) The Washington Times headlined, “Arizona election audit finds discrepancy, Senate president says: ‘Those numbers do not match.’” Despite overwhelming evidence, AZ Senate President Karen Fann appears to be backing down.

This is serious business. The 2020 presidential election results raised questions that required a ballot audit of Maricopa County’s 2.1 million ballots.

The Arizona Senate began the auditing process in January due to widespread reports of fraud and irregularities in Maricopa County. The Board of Supervisors refused to comply with the Arizona Senate until Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Timothy Thomason ordered them to do so on February 26, 2021.

Jack Sellers, Maricopa County GOP chair of Republican dominated Board of Supervisors, now claims the Maricopa County ballot audit is an “alternate reality that has veered out of control.” Sellers is taking his cue from County Recorder Stephen Richer, who duped Republican voters.

Other states, including Georgia, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania, disagreed, and have followed Arizona’s lead after ballot discrepancies were discovered.

Ballot integrity is vital to a constitutional republic. American citizens must have faith in our electoral system and the expectation that our elected officials will take their duties seriously.


Gateway Pundit keeps Maricopa County’s ballot audit in national spotlight

July 16, 2021

In this May 5, 2021 letter to Karen Fann, president of the Arizona State Senate, Pamela S. Karlan,* the head of the Biden administration’s Justice Department’s civil rights division, claimed the Maricopa County ballot recount is illegal.

“We have a concern that Maricopa County election records, which are required by federal law to be retained and preserved, are no longer under the ultimate control of elections officials, are not being adequately safeguarded by contractors, and are at risk of damage or loss,” Karlan wrote.

Facts proved otherwise, Sen. Fann was not deterred, and the ballot audit not only continued, but spurred other states to take similar action.

Through it all, Gateway Pundit (GP) has been a reliable source of information. Struggling Newsweek magazine which began publishing in 1933 and ended its hard copy subscriptions in 2012 due to readers demanding instant, not week-old news, albeit with a leftist slant, absurdly refers to GP as a “mis-and disinformation site.”

As the relentless attacks continue, Arizonans — and others nationwide — realize leftist local media outlets are not reliable sources of unbiased information. Gateway Pundit has provided cutting edge reports. If you’re seeking updated, fact-based accounts of ballot audits they will never be found in the failing, skewed news disseminators.

Gateway Pundit’s most recent ballot audit reports can be read here (July 15), here  (July 16) and here (July 16). It’s information you won’t find in the blatantly GOP-hating local newspaper.

Stephen Richer revels in blue spotlight, duped Republicans

July 12, 2021

GOP political newcomer clearly displays his leftist stripes

When the GOP-hating, Hillary-endorsing local newspaper is enraptured with an elected Republican, it’s a clear sign something is amiss. That is exactly what’s happening with Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer. The Recorder’s Office is regarded as a down ballot post, which few people can accurately identify either by the duties or the office holder.

In November 2020, Richer, the previously unknown Republican lawyer ousted the single term democrat and the victory tasted sweet, masking the toxicity aimed at conservatives that we were soon to see. Richer has appeared in a full-color, above-the-fold photo in a newspaper report standing beside democrat Sheriff Paul Penzone and using the prominently displayed word “unhinged” to describe President Donald Trump. Penzone, it should be remembered defeated six-term Sheriff Joe Arpaio with at least $2 million added to his campaign coffers by none other than Socialist billionaire George Soros who has resolutely donated to overhaul the criminal justice system in his leftist image.

This revealing account was published in Law Enforcement Today.

Displaying its newfound GOP defector poster boy, Sunday’s edition of the seriously declining local newspaper devotes two pages to a “Your Turn” column by Stephen Richer, titled, “Playing by an awfully different set of rules.”  This bold type face, foolish sentiment is directly below the headline:

Maricopa County election administrators conducted bipartisan hand-count audit of 2020 votes. Cyber Ninjas — Republicans in sheep’s clothing — recruited almost exclusively from the GOP.

Do those words sound like what Republican voters would expect to hear from a newly elected Republican? The newspaper, which always posts a photo of the columnist alongside the article, generously provides Richer a “haircut” by lopping off the oddly balding top of his head, making him look more palatable as he gouges Republican Senate President Karen Fann and the auditing firm which has worked around the clock with NINE online cameras making the process available to any interested party. Richer bizarrely concludes they play by a “different set of rules.”

His own election was hardly a runaway. Richer defeated 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.


Arizona’s election audit deliberately sullied by county officials

July 9, 2021

Are Maricopa County officials complicit in possible criminality?

Scrutiny of Maricopa County’s election audit has been front and center news, but not in the local press which has held firm to the idea that it is suspect, and should not be taking place, despite the fact that other states including Georgia, Michigan, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania are investigating their 2020 election results.

The Gateway Pundit (GP), a reliably conservative national blog has been relentless in its coverage of the audit, and has become the go-to site for Arizona truth seekers.

Today we direct our readers to “Arizona Audit War Room Points Out Possible Crimes Committed by Maricopa County Officials,” by Jordan Conradson.

The team at GP obviously has an inside track on the proceedings and the players involved. We are grateful for the site’s ongoing diligence.

With democrats seriously fighting to control our state, Arizona Republicans are living in perilous times. Our state legislature breakdown is too close for comfort as the 30 member Senate consists of 16 Republicans and 14 democrats. The 60 member House is similarly tight with 31 Republicans and 29 democrats.

Prior to Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly, the last time Arizona had two democrat U.S. Senators was when Ernest McFarland and Carl Hayden represented the state. Hayden had been the territorial sheriff and first ran for congress in 1911 in anticipation of Arizona’s 1912 statehood. He was born in Hayden’s Ferry, Arizona Territory, which was later renamed Tempe.

McFarland, born in 1894 had the distinction of being the only Arizonan to serve in all three branches of government. In 1924 he was elected Pinal County Attorney. He was a U.S. Senator, Arizona Governor and Arizona Supreme Court Justice. He also owned KTVK Channel 3 which he acquired in a cozy media deal with fellow Democrat Pres. Lyndon Johnson, who also signed the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967. 

To put this timeline in context, both Hayden and McFarland joined the military during World War I.

The sweetheart deal gifting media franchises to political cronies, also established PBS and NPR as the national distribution networks for leftward skewed public television and radio.

For the sake of our future, it’s imperative Republicans take back the senate. If you’ve been complaining but doing nothing, now is the time to get involved. It‘s never been more important.
