Americans beware: Control is the new normal

July 29, 2021

This afternoon, shaky Joe Biden, masked and wearing sunglasses, made a spoon-fed announcement that all federal workers must be vaccinated against COVID-19 or be subject to strict Coronavirus testing requirements. The Department of Veterans Affairs announced Monday all of its health-care workers must be vaccinated.

Read Katie Pavlich’s excellent new report, “BREAKING: Biden Issues New Vaccine Mandates.”

Merrick Garland who heads the Department of Justice as U.S. Attorney General says government agencies and companies CAN force employees to get COVID vaccines as California and NYC lead the way with mandates. Garland rivals Ramsey Clark for the title of most radical leftist to hold that office in modern history.

Remember when Barack Obama nominated this tyrannical activist to the U.S. Supreme Court in the waning days of his administration?  Republican senators back-burnered the nomination, while Arizona single-term Senator Jeff Flake, Obama’s basketball and traveling buddy, was shepherding Garland around the senate desperately trying to gin up votes for him.

Earlier this week, the San Francisco Bar Alliance urged its nearly 500 member bars ask customers to prove they’ve been vaccinated or provide results of a negative COVID-19 test from the past three days. They were not so authoritarian when the deadly scourge of AIDs was infecting large segments of the San Francisco homosexual community, since that would have been politically incorrect.


Michelle Ugenti-Rita’s political aspirations explode in boos at Trump election integrity rally

July 25, 2021

Scandal-plagued* Arizona state senator Michelle Ugenti Rita (R-LD23) received a roaring reception at Saturday’s capacity crowd Trump election integrity rally, but it definitely wasn’t what she was hoping for. 

Ugenti-Rita, who has said she no longer supports the Maricopa County ballot audit, and has ridiculed AZ Senate President Karen Fann, was booed repeatedly and finally left the stage in disgrace before finishing her prepared statements. Attendees were furious at her petty refusal to support SB 1241, an election integrity bill proposed by another Republican, Sen. Kelly Townsend — opting instead to join the democrats and Republicrat Sen. Paul Boyer. She‘s currently a candidate for Arizona Secretary of State and will likely be withdrawing rather than face a humiliating Primary Election loss.

Ugenti-Rita’s disgrace was widely reported nationally:

Biden’s farcical double standard on immigration

July 18, 2021

Comparing Biden to Paul Revere: Biden comes up short

The tower of Boston’s Old North Church is immortalized for being where Paul Revere’s “One if by land, two if by sea” lantern signal was sent. The phrase is related to Revere’s midnight ride of April 18, 1775, alerting the colonists, preceding the Battles of Lexington and Concord during the American Revolutionary War. When American history was still taught, we learned these facts.

Things have changed dramatically in the intervening years. Today the leftist educrat members of the teacher’s unions are committed not to our history, but rather to instilling divisiveness — dedicated as they are to indoctrinating Critical Race Theory, where one group of Americans are victims and the other are victimizers, based solely on genetic characteristics over which we have no control.

The Biden administration is energized at the prospect of separating us and laying blame.  It’s their red meat. But there is now what at first blush appears to be an impossible to understand component.

Though the dismantling of the wall on our southern border has been prioritized by the democrats who welcome all comers breaching our southern border* from Central America and Mexico, there is a decidedly different approach to Cubans living under communism 90 miles south of Florida. This past week, they have been marching for freedom from the repressive regime that turned the once popular destination country to a dictatorship run by Fidel Castro and his brother Raul for more than six decades. Communist Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel Bermudez is currently in charge.

Alejandro Mayorkas, Biden’s Secretary of Homeland Security, is another slippery Obama administration cohort now reshuffled over to Biden. He helped implement the DACA program and will be responsible for strengthening it, along with other Biden immigration programs. He also has a short memory. Mayorkas’ own family fled Cuba in 1960 after Fidel Castro’s communist takeover of the country. This was his tweet on the topic.

Mayorkas is not all that concerned about our nation’s security as he welcomes uneducated, unvaccinated and often known criminal invaders from Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.  However, his and Biden’s message to Cubans hungering for freedom among increasing domestic turmoil along with food and medical shortages is, “Let me be clear. If you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States.”

Why the different treatment? There’s no mystery involved. Cubans are reliably Republicans. Mexicans and Central Americans most often walk lock-step with the democrats.

* U.S. Customs and Border Protection provides these shocking and most updated numbers for Fiscal Year 2021 to Date Stats for June 2021. Check out the percentage increases. Between February and March 2021, after newly installed Joe Biden assumed the presidency, 1,076,242 illegals entered the United States. The numbers have not abated.


Associated Press gives official pass to criminals

July 13, 2021

News agency will no longer cover “not newsworthy” crimes

Associated Press is back to its old tricks, determining what is now too offensive for general consumption while attempting to manipulate American’s attitudes via language. It has become the self-appointed arbiter of communication, with no one to challenge its leftist perspective. SRAZ has written about the agency’s overreaches intended to cunningly alter the vantage point of readers, now utilizing loaded language techniques while ignoring minority perpetrated criminality.

In 2019 AP reporters were instructed on retooling language in an effort to reconfigure opinions. In 2021 deceitful word manipulation has become even more emboldened. We noted at the time that what was once heralded as the free press, has grotesquely transmogrified to purveyors of mind control. This is an important link which is worth your time.

Claiming its mission is to “inform the world,” and “setting the industry standard for ethics in journalism,” AP boasts it’s been on the scene since 1846. Its former rival United Press International (UPI) has all but dried up and bitten the dust.

AP’s latest gambit is deeming certain names too objectionable to be seen in print. Naming crime suspects or showing mug shots of minority criminal perpetrators is now considered racist, although their presumably loving mothers bestowed the monikers on them.

John Daniszewski, AP’s Vice President for Standards, ignores the fact that crime stats are highest among minority perpetrators, since that doesn’t fit into the leftist perspective as it skews the news. He writes, “The names of suspects are generally not newsworthy beyond their local communities. We will not link from these stories to others that do name the person, and we will not move mug shots in these cases, since the accused would be identifiable by that photo as well. We also will stop publishing stories driven mainly by a particularly embarrassing mug shot, nor will we publish such mug shots solely because of the appearance of the accused.”

In a world inhabited by leftists even those calling themselves “journalists,“ charged with delivering the news, showing or naming the perpetrator is now racist or too embarrassing.

It’s worth considering if John Daniszewski would be so generous if either he, his wife or children were brutally victimized by those whose violent crimes he is intent on ignoring.


“Systemic racism” fraud exposed by Catholic League President

July 8, 2021

The insidious Marxist farce known as ‘critical race theory’ has invaded America. It is served to us and our children by radically leftist educrats who have coined the phrase, “systemic racism,” which is calculated to divide us as oppressors and victims based solely on skin color. Integral to the scheme is reparations, monetary payments to atone for slavery which ended in 1865 with the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, in the aftermath of the four-year long Civil War. It was fought during the presidency of Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican U.S. President who was an ardent abolitionist.

The surge of immigrants through Ellis Island from its opening in 1892 to its closing in 1954 were often oppressed people themselves and neither they nor their descendants owned slaves, which is of no consequence to those with an agenda.

The local newspaper, which touts its commitment to diversity over competence, ran an irrational editorial on July 7, by a black University of Texas professor, under the headline, “Teaching critical race theory is patriotic, not divisive.”

Topping the most rational commentaries on the topic is this one written by Catholic League president Bill Donohue, titled, “MEET THE NEW RACISTS.” Regardless of how busy you are today, take time to read his wisdom. It’s a decision you won’t regret.


Biden’s border crisis even worse than we thought

July 6, 2021

Dems view invasion of unvaccinated and uneducated as future democrat voters

With the Biden administration’s weakness evident to those from Central America, Mexico and Special Interest Aliens who continually breach our southern border, it’s worth paying attention to the criminal aspect of who is entering.

As bizarre as it sounds, recent “guidance from Biden’s acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement  Director Tae Johnson instructs agents not to pursue illegal aliens for arrest and deportation until they have been convicted of aggravated felonies against Americans — crimes such as rape, murder, child pornography, sexual abuse of a minor, trafficking firearms, and theft.

On its heels came this “Policy Alert” from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services carrying the subject line: “Bona Fide Determination Process for Victims of Qualifying Crimes, and Employment Authorization and Deferred Action for Certain Petitioners.”

In plain English, our government is prioritizing illegals who claim they are crime victims…rather than perpetrators.

The victims Pres. Joe Biden and his disinterested, perpetually  cackling “border czar” VP Kamala Harris should focus on are Americans.

FAIR (Federation for American Immigration Reform) has actively monitored the Biden Administration’s inaction and the criminal invaders who are being welcomed without any consideration for the well-being of Americans.

This datelined list of Examples of Serious Crimes By Illegal Aliens is well worth your time. It exposes the fallacy that these are “just good folks, trying to make a better life for themselves.”

Preston Huennekens, FAIR’s Government Relations Manager, highlights the border policy differences between the Trump and Biden border administrations, headlining his June report, “May Border Apprehensions Reach 21-Year High.”

This Center for Immigration Studies report, “MS-13 Resurgence: Immigration Enforcement Needed to Take Back Our Streets,” details horrific crimes committed at an alarming rate by violent gang members. The numbers have obviously increased since this was written in 2018.

Sanctuary cites, counties and states providing safe havens to criminal aliens have proliferated across our nation.

Disney becomes “inclusive,” drops customary greeting

July 3, 2021

Walt Disney, an American icon who created magic and promoted values through his movies and theme parks was a patriot who renounced the democrat party and became a Republican in 1940. He was a generous donor to GOP candidates. Disney was a founding member of the ‘Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals,’ an organization which stated they “believed in, and like, the American Way of Life — we find ourselves in sharp revolt against a rising tide of Communism, Fascism and kindred beliefs, that seek by subversive means to undermine and change this way of life.”

Given his conservative background, Disney would likely be rolling in his grave if he knew the turn his theme parks are taking, embracing not a wholesome haven for families, but celebrating what is now deceptively sold as “diversity.”

Disney Park’s automated announcements, which play before all performances, have surrendered to the newly empowered LBGQT clamoring chorus and changed the traditional greeting, “Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls.” Now they began with, “Good evening, dreamers of all ages.”

“Inclusion is essential to our culture and leads us forward as we continue to realize our rich legacy of engaging storytelling, exceptional service, and Disney magic,” Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, recently enthused on the company’s website.  D’Amaro, whose personal life is shrouded in mystery, with only his work and education history highlighted, has a vision for Disney that would have earned him a final paycheck and an escort to his car if the company’s namesake were still at the helm of the world-wide company.

Spend your money elsewhere. Exposing children to this agenda regardless of how it is cloaked, might appear subtle, but it is now so ubiquitous that even subtleties are readily absorbed.


Kamala Harris’ quick Mexico trip: I came, I saw, arrivederci

June 27, 2021

Leftist immigration policy has predictably dire border consequences

VP Kamala Harris finally took a sanitized trip to El Paso on Friday, three months after she was named the border czarina by Pres. Joe Biden, and facing mounting pressure for not attending to business, to which she cackled in response. She briefly visited an ICE facility, staying out of the sun and avoiding the harsh reality of a steady stream of illegal aliens crossing into the United States. A recent headline following her trip? “More migrants will now get 2nd chance at asylum.”

With audacity in abundance, she actually stated the Biden administration had made progress tackling the “tough situation we inherited.”

Apparently the Vice President, who has steadfastly avoided the border since her March 24 appointment to oversee the calamitous situation, has forgotten that border wall construction was an issue that President Trump campaigned on and was elected to fulfill. Progress was being made until Biden’s surrogates authorized dismantling of completed wall sections and a halt to new construction, creating the current crisis.

Since Biden has undone the effective policies from Day One of his administration, illegal aliens have crossed the southern border at a record rate of nearly 180,000 per month, according to data supplied by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

On his first day in office, signing myriad pre-prepared leather bound executive orders, Biden also overturned President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, affecting illegals awaiting immigration decisions. In the ensuing months, unaccompanied minors, being exploited by transporting drug cartels have become a major problem at the border. Kamala Harris’ response? Listen.

Is it any wonder this June 23, Rasmussen Reports indicates 55 percent of voters support election audits?

          


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.


Calif. launches vaccine passports cloaked as convenience

June 19, 2021

Americans who have received both COVID-19 vaccines were handed a card with the admonishment to “keep it with you, like a driver’s license.”  The card notes the dates of the inoculations, granting certain privileges such as allowing recipients to travel freely and attend indoor events and even college.  Having such a document invokes the dreaded, “Show me your papers” mandate that is a cultural metaphor for life in a police state.

The pandemic is essentially over, but governmental control over American citizens is just beginning.

California democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom, who is the subject of a recall, has said that the system he has put in place does not constitute a “vaccine passport” that businesses would use to filter people who are not vaccinated, though it does a good job of portraying one. Newsom mandates that entities hosting large indoor gatherings, such as concerts or sports events, verify that all attendees either have proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test or vaccination.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order on April 19, 2021, stating that no business can demand verification of inoculation. 

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a democrat, heads the only state that has an official vaccine passport, known as the Excelsior Pass, which is linked to its state vaccination database, and verifies vaccination status — an overreach and massive invasion of privacy that should terrify any American.

Though California’s portal functions as a website, rather than an app, it’s otherwise essentially the same thing, according to California’s chief technology innovation officer, Rick Klau.

“This is very similar in concept to what New York launched with Excelsior Pass, which is an opportunity for a resident, in our case the state of California, to have a digital copy of their vaccination record,” Klau said.

“An opportunity?” Giving up privacy for convenience is a slippery slope no thinking American should willingly travel.
