Durham report: Steele dossier, Team McHillary all conspired against Pres. Trump

May 16, 2023

It’s a reasonable expectation that few have read the 316-page Durham Report, though the alphabet networks have been diligently verifying its claims. 

Donald Trump was never expected to win the 2016 presidential election, which was being gifted to Hillary Clinton, despite her scams, treachery and deceit. The only problem with that scheme was that American voters spoke loud and clear, much to the shock (less than 2-minute video) of the election night newscasters.

The New York Post headlines its lead report, “Durham proves that Hillary and the FBI tried to rig the 2016 election.” It’s worth your time.

And the scandalous Steele dossier?

There was an Arizona connection. In a book released while he was being treated for his final illness, John McCain, who repeatedly failed at attaining the presidency, which Donald Trump achieved on his initial political foray, alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election, leading to the appointment of special counsel, Robert Mueller, who found no collusion.

President Trump repeatedly dismissed the rumors calling them a “witch hunt” and a “hoax.” Jealous John McCain admitted hand carrying the dossier to then-FBI Director James Comey. “I did it and I would do it again,” McCain boasted, “Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell.” McCain blamed his vicious hatefulness on “duty,” claiming he did “what duty demanded I do.”

The Clinton campaign helped bankroll the notorious Steele dossier, which made unsubstantiated accusations against Trump. Despite the malicious collusion against him, Donald Trump got the last laugh, winning the presidency and providing Americans the best economy in memory, building a southern border wall while putting Americans first. Biden, who prioritized tearing down the wall, is currently letting 10,000 illegal aliens into the United States each month. ABC News headlines, “US will let in at least 100,000 Latin Americans to reunite with families,” teaching them that American laws are meant to be broken.


Politically motivated prosecution targets fmr. Pres. Trump, his supporters

April 4, 2023

Today is an unprecedented day in our nation’s history, as vengeance usurps law and Trump faces nearly 3 dozen felony counts this afternoon. His supporters remain loyal.

This is the recent pull-no-pinches letter signed by House GOP judiciary leaders to unabashedly partisan New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg. It included these compelling words:

“You are reportedly about to engage in an unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority:the indictment of a former President of the United States and current declared candidate for that office. This indictment comes after years of your office searching for a basis—any basis—on which to bring charges, ultimately settling on a novel legal theory untested anywhere in the country and one that federal authorities declined to pursue. If these reports are accurate, your actions will erode confidence in the evenhanded application of justice and unalterably interfere in the course of the 2024 presidential election. In light of the serious consequences of your actions, we expect that you will testify about what plainly appears to be a politically motivated prosecutorial decision.”

Reuters’ News headlined today’s article, “Trump indictment pulls DeSantis-leaning Republicans back to MAGA fold.” Real Clear Politics aggregated presidential polling shows Trump leading by wide margins against every potential 2024 primary candidate.

Soros-funded NY DA hopes to bring down Donald Trump

March 21, 2023

Trump indictment is a political witch hunt encompassing his supporters

All indications point to an indictment against former President Donald Trump being issued by his political adversaries. The date of parading the popular president to be fingerprinted and indicted appears to be less certain than was previously reported. This is political gamesmanship by the left intended to humiliate Donald Trump and demoralize his supporters. It will only enflame us.

Far left democrat Alvin Bragg, Jr., is the Soros-backed* soft on crime, including downgrading felony charges, New York District Attorney who is bringing the politically motivated charges.

Remember this: Bragg is bringing these unprecedented, (misdemeanor) charges, not only against Donald Trump, but against all of his supporters. We’re the ones who stood in long lines in Phoenix under the blistering sun to hear him prior to his election and crowded into other venues since to celebrate this president. Others across America braved snow and rain for a chance to support candidate Trump. He energizes Americans. Following his election, he strengthened the economy, put solid judges on the U.S. Supreme Court and federal benches, while keeping his campaign promises.

As democrats focus on demoralizing a popular former president, the Communist leaders of China and Russia have been meeting for the past three days. The far left media ignores this potentially disastrous collusion.

AZ rancher, 73, faces murder charges for defending property from invading illegals

February 23, 2023

George Alan Kelly is being held on $1 million bail in the shooting death of a previously deported illegal alien invading the Nogales, Arizona ranch on which he and his wife work and live.

Arizona’s failing leftwing newspaper characterized the shooting with the words, “rancher shot and killed a Mexican citizen in the back as he ran for his life.”

Fox News earlier reported a GoFundMe account organized on Kelly’s behalf was booted based on its policy explicitly prohibiting campaigns that raise money to cover the legal defense of anyone formally charged with a alleged violent crime.

An active fundraiser for Kelly remains on the Christian crowd funding platform GiveSendGo.

“Neighbors say that he had been having difficulty keeping invaders out and say that Mr. Kelly would have acted in good faith,” the fundraiser’s organizer, Shannon Pritchard, wrote. “It is a tragedy that a simple farmer, who should be protected by the government, has been abandoned and had to defend himself.”

On his website, in a letter titled, “Welcome to safe, historic and beautiful Santa Cruz County,” Sheriff David Hathaway inanely wrote: “As a family with nine children, we can attest to the fact that Santa Cruz County is a great safe place to raise a family and has the advantage of offering the experience of multiple cultures and easy visits to Mexico.”

Hathaway, a democrat, mostly self-funded his $70,000 campaign in Arizona’s smallest county.

Archaic Biden crassly uses bigoted term describing black governor

February 16, 2023

The New York Post article headlines, ‘Biden refers to Maryland’s first black governor, Wes Moore, as ‘boy’ in speech,’ displaying how out of touch relic Biden is as he reverts to antiquated segregationist rhetoric to describe accomplished black male leaders.

Desegregation of American schools culminated with the 1954 Supreme Court case, Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, which ruled that separating students by race was unconstitutional. Biden, currently 80-years-old, was then in junior high. Though a career politician, democrat Biden is a product of his time and appallingly has made no effort to modernize his passé thinking. Biden gave the eulogy at the funeral of his democrat segregationist senate colleague Robert Byrd, who began his political career as a high ranking member of the Ku Klux Klan.

In remembrance of Russell Pearce and the fate of the “Republic”

January 18, 2023

Although it is not our policy to post articles we did not write or something of this length, this is the worthy exception. Read it and you’ll understand.

A Celebration of the Life of Russell Pearce took place Monday, January 16 in the town he always called home…Mesa. Friends, family, and a crowd of admirers assembled to celebrate the life of this conservative stalwart and thoroughly decent man.

Former Congressman JD Hayworth was in attendance, and could not help but notice the difference between Monday’s service and the “send-off” provided by the daily newspaper. It prompted Hayworth to pen this column, reprinted below.

Russell Pearce and the fate of the “Republic”

You need not look very far to find the latest evidence reaffirming the well-earned nickname of The Arizona Republic.

A reading of the Jan. 5 article on the death of former State Senator Russell Pearce brings to mind the single word that serves both as an accurate description of that sickly publication’s open borders bias…as well as its oft-employed sobriquet: Repugnant.

The trio of creative writers tasked with putting Pearce’s passing “in perspective” certainly didn’t disappoint their editorial overlords; they deliberately mischaracterized the intent of his carefully crafted, ultimately passed, and signed-into-law Senate Bill 1070.

Actually, headline writers began the barrage by calling the legislation “controversial.” That word serves as the “tell sign” when a publication disapproves of the subject of its coverage. Reporters Andrew Oxford, Mary Jo Pitzl, and Daniel Gonzalez weren’t far behind; by the article’s third paragraph, they included predictable leftist doggerel, peddled as fact: “Arizona’s ‘show me your papers’ law,” they wrote.

Had the trio of scribes been interested in objectivity instead of smearing the departed, a simple bit of research into SB 1070 and its fate in the courts would have been highlighted.

The “Fair and Legal Employment Act,” as Pearce named the legislation, drafted in consultation with then-Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who now serves as that state’s Attorney General, was formulated with the intent of defining Arizona’s right to identify and detain illegal immigrants, based on existing federal law.

As Senator Pearce said in 2010, in response to the inevitable court challenges from the Obama Administration and other advocates for open borders, “SB 1070 makes no new immigration law. It simply enforces the laws already on the books…I refuse to apologize for standing up for America and the rule of law.”

In fact, no less a liberal tribunal than the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit made clear in 1983 that nothing in federal law precludes a city from enforcing the criminal provisions of immigration law, and SB 1070, its supporters maintained, simply advanced that same practice for the entire state of Arizona.

But the intervening 27 years brought forth an activism intent on defining “open borders” as noble, and any effort to enforce existing immigration law as wrongheaded, or on “the wrong side of history,” to use the favorite buzz-phrase of the left.

Such a dubious cause sought to wrap itself in legitimacy, and exploit the growing realization that many jurists on the federal bench were more than willing to usurp legislative authority if such a drastic action were in tune with their own political goals. Instead of “equal justice under law,” our nation has witnessed the advent of “unequal application of the law, based upon political preference.”

Eventually, the U.S. Supreme Court considered the constitutionality of SB 1070, and the high court, while finding some portions of the legislation in conflict with federal law, upheld the provision that the left and its media lackeys still mischaracterize.

Far from radical, the “Supremes” found that seeking documentation for a person’s immigration status was entirely reasonable. The ruling stated that if law enforcement officers have stopped a subject for a legitimate reason, those officers must “reasonably attempt” to determine that subject’s immigration status when there is a “reasonable suspicion” that the person may be in the country illegally.

But reasonableness means nothing to the rabid, and the reporting of the “Repugnant” focuses on pleasing a particular point of view typified by those whose hatred of Russell Pearce has not abated…even after his earthly departure.

How else to describe the featured comments of one “community activist,” who compared Pearce to a terrorist? Said this “activist,” whose name is omitted from this column since she is undeserving of any additional notoriety: “I’m sad for all the terror that he caused our community, [and] all the people who were deported because of his political grandstanding.”

For good measure, the “Repugnant” reporters felt the need to include one more example of this self-appointed “humanitarian’s” inhumanity: her desire to see the deceased lampooned for laughs. “She would love to see one last political cartoon showing Pearce standing at the gates of Heaven, and being asked to ‘show his papers.’”

What does The Arizona Republic have to show for its desired editorial goal of open borders and its eager embrace of amnesty for illegal aliens? Fewer readers, for one thing. A budget awash in red ink, for another.

Russell Pearce met the fate that awaits us all. Now he belongs to history.

The smug and self-assured, so eager to bid him farewell will soon find the publication for which they toil facing its own demise. Maybe then, the staff of The Arizona Republic will realize that they are on “the wrong side of history.”

As fmr. Pres. Trump mulls another presidential run, media goes ballistic

December 17, 2022

ASSociated Press cites “a person familiar with the matter”

An AP headline blasts, “Jan. 6 panel eyes recommending 3 criminal charges for Trump.” The preposterous “report/indictment” to which we have chosen not to provide a link, begins with these words: “The House panel investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol is considering recommending the Justice Department pursue an unprecedented criminal charge of insurrection and two other counts against former President Donald Trump.”

Besides insurrection — an uprising aiming to overthrow the government — the panel is also considering recommending prosecutors pursue charges for obstructing an official proceeding and conspiracy to defraud the United States, “a person familiar with the matter,” told the AP. The committee’s deliberations were continuing late Friday, and no decisions were formalized on which specific charges the committee would refer to the Justice Department. (Notice the “person” remains unnamed.) The panel is set to meet Monday afternoon when recommendation will be made public.

This set-up has a single intent…marginalizing Donald Trump, and painting his loyalists with the same broad bush, desiring to criminalize not only the former president, but strike fear in the hearts of his broad base of conservative supporters, foolishly confusing conservatives with weak-kneed liberals.

The Department of Justice is headed by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, a radical leftist, who Barack Obama tried, but failed, to put on the U.S. Supreme Court, nominating him on March 16, 2016. Despite being pushed by former Arizona Republicrat Sen. Jeff Flake, the Senate did not consider the nomination, which expired on January 3, 2017. Flake, who was only able to garner an 18% approval rating, did not run for reelection. Joe Biden appropriately rewarded him by appointing him Ambassador to Turkey.

Has Been and Never Was hammer AZ GOP leader Dr. Kelli Ward

November 17, 2022

Proof no good deed goes unpunished

In a bizarre case of a lopsided internecine war — when unity should definitely prevail — Arizona Republicans are ringside at a political bout. Matt Salmon, a former congressman, former state GOP chairman, twice former gubernatorial candidate who waited until the last week prior to the primary election to withdraw from the 2022 race, (ensuring his name remained on ballots) now takes the bizarre step of beating up on a woman. Not just any woman, mind you. Dr. Kelli Ward, who was elected to two-terms as a state senator and twice elected as Arizona Republican chairman, is also an osteopathic physician…as is her husband, Col. Michael Ward, D.O. who served tours of duty in war zones and was the flight surgeon for Arizona’s Air National Guard. She continued to practice medicine in emergency departments in Lake Havasu City and Kingman, Arizona, during her time in the senate. There is no question they believe in giving back to their communities and state.

But missing-the-spotlight Salmon is heaping blame on GOP Chair, Dr. Kelli Ward, irresponsibly holding her accountable for Republican losses in the recent General Election. He previously exchanged appreciative platitudes with Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson, likely hoping for her win — followed by a job. Neither materialized. 

Salmon, always full of himself, will never hold public office again. Kelli Ward is deserving of his praise for her efforts on behalf of Arizona Republican Party candidates. Instead, the man who left the party leadership position under similar conditions assigns her guilt. 

Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson lavished praise on Salmon for his decision to exit the race, believing his decision cleared the way for her to singly challenge Republican Kari Lake. We know how that turned out.

On April 14, 2022 we posted, “Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson: AZ Gov candidate, re-invents herself.” If you missed it, it provides an in-depth insight. Beware! She’s got the wealth and time to reinvent herself yet again.

Worried headline: “Hostile Takeover” displays newspaper’s election fear

November 5, 2022

Although Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, many Arizonans have voted early. The radically leftwing Arizona Republic is quaking in its boots over the prospect of significant conservative victories, locally and nationally, in the all-important midterms.

The front page headlines, “Hostile Takeover,” as though exercising the right to vote is a nefarious scheme when engaged in by Republicans. The multi-page article is venomous, as reporter Richard Ruelas unleashes his contemptible bile spew. Watching him on Channel 8’s Horizon, he has a permanent painful expression etched on his face, barely concealed by an occasional forced smile. Above his byline and below the headline are the intended to be defamatory words, “Trump backers, Turning Point control AZ’s GOP.” Hurling the names of the Republican state chair, a physician, and two ranking members of Turning Point, is reminiscent of a side show carnival barker yelling, “Tha show’s about at begin…Git yur popcorn and peanuts here!” Then the lights go out due to an unpaid bill.

Derogatory spew is all the dems have. And the newspaper, losing subscribers faster than a tick-dipped dog loses fleas, is clearly ready to fold.* The increasingly venomous articles are an obvious indicator that it has reached the point where it hurls invectives for the sole purpose of seeing what sticks, as it tries to drive readers to an all digital edition, which would cost far less to deliver than the hard copy.

Though the ongoing effort is to smear President Trump, Americans well remember the soaring economy during the Trump administration — as reported by the Western Journal. It shines all the more when juxtaposed against Biden’s crushing inflation we witness daily at the gas pump, attempting to afford to eat and keep a roof over our heads.

*The newspaper recently announced it is “published 7 days per week, excluding Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.” Apparently it has detected there will be no news to report on those days. Other media sources are committed to keeping a flow of newsworthy information, though the newspaper is closing shop.

Arizona Republic writes its own obituary

October 25, 2022

Buried on page three under an over-sized photo of a same-sex “Pride” celebration, is the headline, “Gannett puts Phoenix printing facility up for sale, asks $47.7M.”

Gannett is the parent company of the dramatically failing Arizona newspaper and its online version. Poynter, a news industry fact checker, with a decidedly leftwing bent, headlined its coverage, “Gannett announces new cuts including mandatory unpaid leave and buyouts. The company also will pause overall hiring and temporarily suspend matching 401(k) contributions.” It included this letter from Gannett president Mike Reed, detailing the dismal future for the company and employees.

Parents overpay to send their kids to ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication (home to partisan Arizona PBS) — named for a leftwing CBS broadcaster who oversaw the erosion of journalism as he interjected his own leftist commentary into his nightly newscasts. He demoralized families of those serving in Vietnam when he ended his nightly newscasts with photos of caskets being off-loaded from airplanes, accompanied by individual photos of dead U.S. servicemen. Cronkite’s baritone voice was considered familial, but he was as political as the enemy American’s were fighting in the Southeast Asian jungles. Identified as “Uncle Walter” in the early days of television, discerning viewers eventually found him to be anything but warm and fuzzy.

And coming full circle, who did we find among the myriad associates at Poynter?  None other than Mi-Ai Parrish, glowingly described as the chair of Poynter’s National Advisory Board; CEO and President of MAP (her initials) Strategies Group; Endowed Chair, Media Innovation and Leadership and Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, at ASU. She is heralded as former president and publisher of USA TODAY NETWORK Arizona, The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com in Phoenix, AZ — and, of course, “the first person of color in the role.” Poynter refers to conservatives as “conspiracy theorists” and “far-right extremists.” The World Tribune writes: Poynter is funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundations and the Omidyar Network. The two combined for “$1.3 million in grant funding.” Soros-funded Poynter blacklists ‘unreliable’ conservative publications.

After being indoctrinated for years, newly graduated reporters instinctively fall into lockstep with the left. It’s what they do. It’s who they are. That fact, besides working for little pay, underscores their value to the dying local newspaper.
