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.


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.


Biden admin.’s stunning hypocrisy on Mideast air strikes

June 28, 2021

Arizonans looking for facts regarding the Biden-ordered air strikes against Iran-backed militia in Iraq and Syria on Sunday evening will have to locate the information somewhere other than on the pages of the radically left-wing local newspaper which focuses on sports and diversity.

This Department of Defense statement notes the U.S. military targeted operational and weapons storage facilities at two locations in Syria and one location in Iraq.

The strikes came at the direction of Pres. Joe Biden‘s handlers, the second time his surrogates have ordered retaliatory strikes against Iran-backed militia since taking office five months ago. Biden last ordered strikes against a target in Syria in February, that time in response to rocket attacks in Iraq.

Military action is often necessary to secure our troops and aid our allies. It’s the predictable hypocrisy that warrants scrutiny.

The U.K.’s Daily Mail provides this exposé, reporting that the views were decidedly different when President Trump authorized military action.

Four years ago, Biden’s mouthpiece Jen Psaki — formerly Obama’s Communications Director — tweeted her dismay at Trump-sanctioned air strikes on the very same country which her boss approved a bombing raid last night.

“What is the legal authority for strikes? Assad is a brutal dictator. But Syria is a sovereign country,” Psaki wrote in April, 2017.

In June 2019, Biden referred to President Trump as “erratic” and “impulsive” for taking the same actions his administration is now taking.

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.


MC Attorney dismisses charges against anti-police rioters

June 13, 2021

This statement from Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel regarding the dismissal of charges for the Oct. 17, 2020 riot case against Phoenix Police raises far more questions than it answers. Acknowledging the fact that crimes were committed, she then goes on to convolutedly address the issue in the third person, stating, “It is the decision of this office that it is in the interests of justice to not proceed.”

Scrolling through the links following the statement, it appears the Maricopa County Attorney is more attuned to distributing community service announcements than to prosecuting criminality, which is the fundamental duty of the prosecutor’s office in the fourth largest and fastest growing county in the United States.

Phoenix Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Ann Justus stated at the time, “As officers began making arrests, incendiary devices were thrown at them. Due to the ongoing criminal activity and assault, the Phoenix Police deployed less lethal munitions in order to safely make arrests.”

The marauding gangs, using the death of repeatedly incarcerated George Floyd 1700 miles away in Minneapolis, to assault Phoenix Police, faced numerous charges including aggravated assault on officers, criminal damage, unlawful assembly, rioting, resisting arrest and obstructing a roadway. They knocked over barricades, “causing a fully marked Phoenix Police patrol vehicle to sustain damage,” Justus said.

Rioters attempted to conceal their faces from view with black umbrellas as they set off smoke bombs in the road and flung them at officers. When police finally declared an unlawful assembly, they were ignored. Fifteen adults and three teens were arrested.

It was reported that flyers for the protest were posted on social media prior to the rampage, boasting, “Phoenix PD underestimates the power of the people. March with us to occupy Washington Street and remind PD who they serve. We will not stay silent. Until we get justice, Phoenix will have no peace.”

Protests against the police have not been isolated incidents and nationally efforts to defund the police have gained momentum resulting in officers leaving and crime rates rising. Yet these are the people Maricopa County Attorney Adel thinks are worthy of having their charges dropped. Violent rioters do not respond to weakness. It emboldens them.


Did you know you’re a big donor to Gay Pride Month?

June 12, 2021

Newsweek magazine, which became an on-line only edition in 2012 as ad revenues fell, devotes its E-edition to celebrating LGBT/Gay Pride and lists 50+ brands and companies that are onboard “celebrating inclusion, equality and love for LGBT Pride month.”

The compilation begins with a warning:

“But just because you see a rainbow shirt in the window, doesn’t mean the store is giving back. Below, we’ve compiled a (not complete) list of retailers, restaurants and other companies with Pride offerings benefiting LGBT nonprofits like GLAAD, GLSEN, The Trevor Project and the It Gets Better Foundation.”

You’ll be cheered to know that Absolut Vodka has brought back its rainbow bottle in celebration as did Smirnoff. Disney is onboard with the Rainbow Disney collection, offering more than 50 products, including Mickey Mouse ears for toddlers. Ikea is flying the Pride flag at all of its locations. Bud Light is donating up to $150,000. Cindy Hensley McCain’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship celebrates and donates “this month and all year long” with a “Pour with PRIDE campaign.”

There is big money involved. Starbucks is matching donations to Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ Foundation through June 30, committing up to $250,000. Stores from Target to Macy’s and Ralph Lauren to Nordstrom are not only celebrating, but are major contributors. T-Mobil intends to donate up to $200,000. Not to be outdone, Verizon is donating $250,000 to PFLAG National and Pride events nationwide, including L.A. Pride, D.C. Black Pride and the NYC Pride March. Athletic shoes, clothing and makeup companies to Johnson and Johnson’s Listerine mouthwash, which has come out with a rainbow striped bottle, and has raised more than $1 million for LGBT nonprofits since 2011, are all supporters.

As you scroll through the merchandisers remember that your patronage is funding their generosity.

In recent years we have been inundated with the homosexual message, which has been glorified in films, television and celebrity news, causing people to overestimate the actual number of people living this lifestyle as Gallup pollsters pointed out in 2019. Few ever heard the word “transgender” until former Olympian Bruce Jenner, who has been married to three different women and fathered 2 children, became Caitlyn Marie Jenner amid great fanfare in 2015. Republican Caitlyn,71, is now running for governor of California as a recall election is underway to remove Leftist Gavin Newsom. No formal date for the election, with a growing number of candidates, has been announced.


Not proficient in Spanish? The AZ República will handle that

June 6, 2021

Since a dwindling number of Arizonans subscribe to the radically left-wing local newspaper, there is likely an unawareness of its most recent move to de-anglicize its reporting. In today’s edition there is a revealing article titled, “Mexicans living abroad to gain representative in Mexico.” It details how illegal aliens from Mexico City who have invaded the United States will be able to elect a “migrant representative to act on their behalf as a member of congress in the city.”

If that’s not convoluted enough to make American heads spin, the report contains a first for the newspaper we have sarcastically referred to as the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic):

“México is set to host its largest election ever, with 500 seats up for grabs, ranging from local and regional representatives to gubernatorial positions all over the country.

And while several states will be electing a statewide migrant representative, only the country’s capital is allowing migrants currently residing outside of the country to vote for this specific seat. For Arizonans who are natives of México City and have registered to vote, that means they can cast a ballot come Sunday.”

Notice the accent mark that is a new addition to the word Mexico? Unless you are willing to be culturally reacclimated by the leftist newspaper, this overreach is an insult. 

The newspaper’s commitment to diversity has been given front page coverage by executive editor, Greg Burton as he details the new hiring practices that include “the goal to match a community that is 44% people of color.”

Hiring based on qualifications is a outdated concept at the newspaper. In order to authentically report the news, diversity takes precedent. This offensive concept invalidates professionals in all walks of life. Having a degree that relates to your line of work is no longer paramount. To be considered a valuable employee it’s imperative you represent a specific ethnicity and have the proper amount of melanin in your skin pigment — traits over which none of us have any control.


L.A. D.A. George Gascon protects criminals, disregards law abiding citizens

June 5, 2021

Arrogant extremist was previously Mesa, AZ Police Chief

The name of Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon is one that should be all too familiar to Valley residents. He was the unpopular, political extremist Mesa Police Chief, prior to moving to San Francisco to become the District Attorney. As political scheming goes, the move was a classic fit as Gascon replaced hard-core leftist* Kamala Harris who was running for California Attorney General. Under the guidance of her acknowledged longtime “mentor” then-San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, she improbably burst onto the national scene as California’s junior U.S. Senator. Harris is now Vice President, waiting for bumbling, stumbling, and frequently incoherent Joe Biden to fall again, integral to Barack Obama’s long-range behind the curtain scheme.

Cuban-born Gascon, whose uncle was imprisoned under the Communist regime of Fidel Castro, is unique among law enforcement professionals and given his background definitely should know better. He is more attuned to keeping criminals happy than keeping law abiding citizens safe.

Although gang violence In Los Angeles County continues to spiral out of control with  murders up 136.4%, shootings up 261.5%, and attacks on police officers up 300%, District Attorney Gascon defended the indefensible Assembly Bill No. 3234, which lessens the penalties for a wide range of crimes. It was signed into law September 2020 by Gov. Gavin Newsom. No surprise…both Gascon and Newsom are far-left democrats.

Californians are wising up.

The campaign to recall Gov. Newsom has 2,026,617 verified signatures, far exceeding the number needed to generate a special election to remove him from office. The Office of the California Secretary of State provides the complete list.

For more background, take time to read, “Amiable bedfellows: Kamala Harris, George Gascon…George Soros.”

Knowledge is power.

* Govtrack graph placed Kamala Harris “far left” compared to other senate democrats.


Deceptive Biden admin. waffles on requiring vaccine compliance

May 29, 2021

Most people are astute enough to know that when someone says, “Trust me,” you shouldn’t. Armed with that wisdom, Americans should be especially leery of the double-talk emanating from members of the Harris/Biden administration.

When the topic is what has come to be known as Vaccine Passports, requiring proof of vaccination for returning to work or school, attending concerts, sporting events, or traveling, there is widespread citizen resistance.

The far-left network CNN trivializes the term with the addition of the word, “just,” as in this sentence: “A vaccine passport is just proof that a person has been immunized against Covid-19.”

What the “vaccine passport” actually represents is the ultimate in the threatening, “Show me your papers,” in repressive societies that restrict freedom of movement and association. Exempt from the demand attempting to be foisted on American citizens are the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador along with worldwide invaders, many of whom are criminals, untested and transported across the United States for resettlement. They are the democrat’s answer to former President Trump’s wall construction, which ceased and portions have been torn down by the Biden administration, focused on permanently increasing the democrat base.

Although key Biden administration members have repeatedly insisted that there aren’t plans for a federal vaccine passport system, believing them is at our own peril.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, appearing on Good Morning America on Friday, said he is “taking a very close look” at vaccine passports for Americans traveling abroad — which is an integral part of the slippery slope.

Asked whether the U.S. would use vaccine passports for travel in or out of the country as international trips increase this year, Mayorkas using polished doubletalk said, “We’re taking a very close look at that” and “making sure that any passport that we provide for vaccinations is accessible to all and that no one is disenfranchised.”

“Disenfranchised” from being subjugated?

The concept of “vaccine passports” has been the subject of conservative backlash, with numerous states having already acted to curtail or ban documentation of Covid-19 vaccinations.

The White House has repeatedly stated there would be no federal vaccination database or mandated vaccine passport in the U.S., which flies in the face of the data collected when signing up for the vaccine. The form even asks the race of those getting what has engagingly become known as “the jab.”

During a recent White House press briefing, Biden’s mouthpiece Jen Psaki said that requiring proof of vaccination is not in the administration’s “intended plan.” Previously the words used were, “There would be no federal vaccination database or mandated vaccine passport in the U.S.“ The slipperiness and blatant deceit is why many Republican governors, Arizona’s Doug Ducey among them, have opted out of the “Vaccine Passport” scheme.

Becker’s Hospital Review has an updated list of which states have opted out or are in full compliance with a governmental passport mandate.

Corporate America joins in training to marginalize white males

May 27, 2021

Lockheed Martin embraces diversity, melanin, and mea culpa philosophy

After watching a Fox News interview with Christopher Rufo explaining how Lockheed Martin Corporation, the nation’s largest defense contractor, sent white male executives on a three-day diversity-training program aimed at deconstructing their “white male culture” and encouraging them to atone for their “white male privilege,” it was not difficult to locate his timely report, “The Woke-Industrial Complex,” published in City Journal. This is not local or national news, but an insight into the cultural revisionism that is artificially dividing Americans from one another based on ethnicity and finding entrenching roots in corporations and institutions of higher learning. Sports are exempt since the majority of football and basketball star athletes are black. (70% in the NFL and 74.2% in the NBA according to Statista).

It was that same publication in 2002 where Victor Davis Hanson first predicted the coming of Mexifornia, which he referred to as being worse than he originally foresaw when he wrote, “Mexifornia, Five Years Later.” Mexifornia later expanded into a book.

Allowing our sovereign national border to become an easily breached sieve, high achieving students taking a backseat to others seeking university scholarships based solely on ethnicity, American history being rewritten and replaced with the fallacy of critical race theory where there are only oppressors and victims, along with corporations holding mea culpa training sessions, illustrate the foolishness calling itself “wokeness.”

The radically leftist Arizona Republic newspaper is dedicated to its commitment to diversity, not of thought or qualifications, but of ethnicity and skin pigment, matters over which the new hires have absolutely no control.
