Tucson supports anti-2nd Amendment restrictions

July 7, 2021

Tucson, Arizona has long been known as the ‘People’s Republic of Pima’ due to its radically leftward bent, as democrats significantly outnumber Republicans.

It’s living up to that reputation as noted in this article in the Tucson Daily Star, written by Kathryn Palmer, headlined, “Tucson’s challenge to ‘2nd Amendment sanctuary’ law is latest in local control saga.” It details the collusion between Tucson Mayor Regina Romero and the accommodating Tucson City Council which unanimously passed a resolution saying the state of Arizona is not obliged to uphold federal gun laws.

The council’s action “prohibits the state and political subdivisions from using any personnel or financial resources to enforce, administer or cooperate with any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the U.S. government that is inconsistent with any Arizona law regarding the regulation of firearms,” effectively making Arizona a Second Amendment sanctuary state emulating the cites that provide “sanctuary” to illegal aliens. This is the council’s version of flipping off Second Amendment supporting citizens.

The City of Tucson has effectively thumbed its nose at Constitution supporting citizens and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signed the straightforward HB 2111 — titled, “Second Amendment Firearm Freedom Act” — into law. The bill, passed by the AZ House and Senate bars in-state enforcement of any federal firearm laws which violate the Second Amendment, by prohibiting police and sheriffs from enforcing federal gun laws that violate the 2nd Amendment.”

Join the NRA, which has protected America’s Second Amendment since its inception in 1871. It recently exposed, “Breaking News! Biden Plan to Combat Rising Crime Includes…Gun Control.”

Mark McCloskey, representing us all, announces for U.S. Senate

May 19, 2021

Republican Mark McCloskey made his campaign announcement on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson’s show Tuesday evening. The Federal Election Commission’s website shows “Mark McCloskey for Missouri” is registered, and a website, mccloskeyforsenate.com, seeks campaign donations.

Incumbent Missouri Republican Roy Blunt has announced he would not seek a third term.

If the name Mark McCloskey sounds only vaguely familiar, a bit of a memory jog is in order. Last July, he and his wife, Patricia, both Missouri lawyers, responded to a mob of several hundred Black Lives Matter marauders who initially broke down the barrier to a private residential street in the St. Louis suburb where they lived. Then, after hearing a commotion they saw the thugs, some armed, break down their private iron gate and congregate in their yard issuing threats.

As they watched the trespassers advancing through their property toward their home, the McCloskey’s grabbed their firearms and headed outside to confront them. Rioters, copying other anarchists across the nation, were using the death of newly martyred, multi-incarceration criminal George Floyd, to destroy swaths of St. Louis, burning buildings and looting stores.

Mark McCloskey said he feared his home was going to suffer a similar fate, and felt he needed to act to protect his family and property. He said the protesters were coming toward his house and didn’t stop until he displayed his AR-15, and his wife pulled out her pistol. McCloskey said both safeties were engaged on their guns. The rifle was later seized by police during a search.

The protesters with the guns told them they “were next” as the McCloskey’s demanded that they leave their property. Police did not respond to the couple’s calls for help, nor did the property’s private security. The couple felt they were on their own. The protesters even threatened to kill the couple’s dog. 

“Not a single person in the out-of-control mob you saw at our house was charged with a crime,” Mark McCloskey said. “But you know who was? We were.”

Video of the incident drew the attention of then-President Donald Trump, and the McCloskey’s were invited to speak at the 2020 Republican National Convention.

SRAZ covered the criminal invasion here, including background on Soros-funded — by nearly $200,000 — St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner, whose office filed felony charges against the couple, and the comments in support of the McCloskey’s by Missouri Gov. Mike Parson and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt.

Biden: “enough prayers, it’s time for action” on guns

April 9, 2021

2nd Amendment rights need protection as never before

In early March, Merrick Garland was confirmed by the senate in a 70-30 vote as U.S. Attorney General, fulfilling the wish of Barack Obama, Joe Biden’s master puppeteer. On his way out of office Obama unsuccessfully tried to slip the former federal appellate judge onto the U.S. Supreme Court.

If all was as it should be, Garland’s new position should put him in an untenable predicament when it comes to handling a federal probe into Biden’s son, Hunter. Federal investigators have been examining multiple financial matters, including whether Hunter Biden violated tax and money laundering laws in foreign energy business dealings. CEFC China Energy, which has links to the Chinese Communist Party, paid Hunter at least $5 million in 2017, according to this Senate report. Along the way, Hunter, who has acknowledged a cocaine addiction, has also developed memory loss regarding compromising information and photos on his laptop that was dropped off at a repair shop. His multiple, and fanciful explanations during a recent CBS interview can be read on The Daily Signal.

Ah, but we digress.

Newly installed U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland has been described as a Second Amendment skeptic, a too soft term for a dedicated restrictionist. On March 15, the NRA-ILA (Institute for Legislative Action) headlined its report, “U.S. House Bows to Biden, Passes Legislation to Cancel Your RIGHT to Obtain a Firearm.”

This is not hyperbole.

Frail and barely cognizant Biden, clearly still under Obama’s direction, has been filling key positions with anti-Second Amendment extremists as detailed here by Jason Ouimet, NRA-ILA Executive Director.

On Thursday Biden, joined by Merrick Garland, announced numerous executive actions aimed at  further restricting gun rights and advocating for red flag laws as he admittedly bypasses congress. This overreach should concern every American regardless of party affiliation. (Notice many of his Biden’s embarrassing gaffes remain in the printed version.)

Biden also announced his selection of David Chipman to serve as the Director of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the agency responsible for enforcing gun laws. Chipman was previously aligned with Giffords PAC, a gun control group that specifically funneled $millions to democrat candidates, committed to carrying out its mission. Giffords is former Arizona U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, whose husband Mark Kelly is now a George Soros aligned U.S. Senator.

America’s strongest safeguard against these far-left overreaches into our Constitutional right to gun ownership is the NRA. If you’re not already a member, join now. It’s never been more important. Our future depends on full dedication to the amendment our Founders put immediately after the first, which guarantees freedom of speech, and the right to peaceably  assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.  

Dems gear up 2024 campaign with $1.9 trillion “giveaway”

March 12, 2021

“Help is Here Tour” integral to democrat strategy

The Washington Examiner exposes the Biden/Harris administration’s effort to deploy an all-hands-on-deck messaging blitz to peddle the $1.9 trillion supposed coronavirus relief package to red states. And while they were indebting future generations, the radical left found time to ram through two restrictive gun control measures H.R. 8 and H.R.1446. The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, released this statement.

The pork laden legislation* was passed along party lines with not a single Republican supporting the exorbitant and unaffordable spending, 5000+ page monstrosity. The Washington Times exposed what it referred to as “Pork wrapped in a stimulus” using these words: “Only 9% of the nearly $2 trillion in spending is dedicated to coronavirus relief and the other 91% goes to money for the arts, humanities, transportation, abortion, loan forgiveness for students and “socially disadvantaged farmers.”

Be aware that the “Help is Here Tour,” is an early campaign strategy to ensure Kamala Harris will be elected president in 2024, though there is little doubt she’ll be in the Oval Office before then. Dems are banking on the distribution of $1,400 direct payments to millions of American households will be a winning election reminder. No one will be told that we will be owned by Japan and the Communist nation of China, since they hold the majority of our debt

With the onset of what was called the trade war in 2018, concern has risen over China possibly weaponizing its immense U.S. debt holding as a way to retaliate against trade tariffs. President Donald Trump began setting tariffs and other trade barriers on China with the goal of forcing it to make changes to unfair trade practices and intellectual property theft.

The Biden administration has encouraged House Democrats to “speak up and speak out” about their plan, acknowledging Barack Obama “paid a price” when public opinion turned against his stimulus legislation and Obamacare. Dems lost the House majority in 2010 and their Senate majority shriveled.

Biden ventriloquist Jen Psaki, posing as his press secretary, previously worked for Biden’s now string-pulling puppeteer Obama. She recently stated, “Any of my colleagues at the time would say that we didn’t do enough to explain to the American people what the benefits were of the rescue plan and we didn’t do enough to do it in terms that people would be talking about at their dinner tables. That’s one of the reasons we, of course, have been trying to break down the impact of the American rescue plan into the key components that will impact people directly.”  In other words, the administration leftists regard taxpaying American citizens who are funding this economic calamity as dolts who have to be incrementally spoon fed their extremist agenda.

Psaki then spoke glowingly about the coronavirus vaccines, for which the current administration attempts to take credit, hoping the American public will forget about President Trump’s implementation of Operation Warp Speed which accelerated COVID-19 vaccine development and distribution.

AZ newspaper maligns GOP elected officials, mischaracterizes legislation

March 1, 2021

SRAZ frequently reminds our readers that the Arizona Republic has deservedly hit hard times. As it became ever more emaciated even prior to becoming homeless, it swapped out longtime more costly employees for ASU journalism students with limited skills though packed with politically correct terminology.  A recent report used the touchy feely term “reached out” three times in a single article, with the word “contacted’ relegated to the trash heap. Steering clear of sex-based verbiage, headlines declare “a person was shot,” or “pregnant people” rather than women. Gannett’s stock which peaked at $91.00 on April 6, 2004, has plummeted to record lows, falling to $4.96 at the closing bell on February 26, 2021, providing proof positive that insulting their few remaining readers is not a good business model.

Subscribers began peeling away in record numbers after the ill-advised, presidential endorsement of deceitful Hillary …“despite her flaws.” The editorial board is so bonded to the left, it was unable to accurately gauge the solid support for Donald Trump, who sailed to victory in 2016.

Still it felt emboldened by the election of the two hard-left U.S. Senators Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema for the first time since 1953 when Barry Goldwater defeated Ernest McFarland and Carl Hayden, initially elected in 1926, finally retired from the senate in 1969 at age 91. Hayden was first elected Maricopa County treasurer and sheriff years before Arizona gained statehood in 1912, which underscores democrats’ bonding to political entrenchment.

Newly elected Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly, an open-border proponent with close and lucrative ties to China, is the founder of Giffords PAC, a Second Amendment restrictionist group targeting national Republican candidates, calling for stricter gun controls and vowing to gut what he refers to as “the gun lobby.” His fellow former astronauts blistered Kelly. Following Sinema’s deceptive path, slickster Kelly made no mention of his party affiliation in any of his campaign ads.

The two Republican members of congress the radical newspaper is currently targeting are Paul Gosar (CD4) and Andy Biggs (CD5) who serve alongside fellow conservatives David Schweikert, (CD 6) and Debbie Lesko (CD8). There was no ire expressed when a democrat candidate who lost her medical license due to deadly medical malpractice, carpetbagged across the Valley from her Glendale residence to run in a Scottsdale/Fountain Hills district against Schweikert, losing yet again, as she deceptively wore medical scrubs in her ads with a stethoscope around her neck.

In Sunday’s edition, Biggs rated multi-pages of abuse. Gosar, Schweilert and Lesko have all received similar contrivances, while their deceptive democrat counterparts, get the kid glove treatment. This morning editorialist Elvia Diaz haughtily advises Republican Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel to drop all charges against 15 violent BLM thugs, “to prove she’s not like…her Republican predecessors.”

Columnist E.J. Montini, a shill for the democrat party, feigns opportunities to deceitfully accuse Republicans of “voter suppression.”

The radically leftist Arizona newspaper never devoted a single word to Joe Biden being caught in cash for influence scandal which was initially exposed by the New York Post and further substantiated when son Hunter’s incriminating laptop revealed even more corrupt connections.

Help put the deceitful newspaper out of its misery. If you still subscribe to the Trump-hating, conservative-loathing Arizona Republic, it’s past time to cancel. Call 1-800-332-6733.

Aged lib Nancy Sinatra “will never forgive” Trump supporters

February 3, 2021

…as she hopes her Trump hatred “doesn’t kill her

Nancy Sinatra has had one thing going for her…a famous last name. She is defined by a 1967 duet with her father, Frank, appropriately titled “Something Stupid,” recorded on her father’s Reprise label. Nothing has changed these many years later. Now closing in on 81, and longing for the spotlight that has mostly eluded her, she exhibits none of the class that her tuxedoed, talented father radiated. He attended John Kennedy’s inaugural celebration and was an equally welcome guest at Ronald Reagan’s, where he danced with First Lady Nancy Reagan.  President Trump and First Lady Melania’s first dance was to Sinatra’s signature tune “My Way,“ at the 2016 inaugural ball.

A Democrat for the first half of his life, Frank Sinatra eventually saw the light and permanently switched to Republican when Ronald Reagan ran for a second term as governor of California in 1970.

Frank’s daughter, known for raunch, shared the same name as Mrs. Reagan, though none of the elegance, wants Second Amendment supporting Trump voters eradicated, telling the British press she now has a deep anger inside of her toward Trump’s voters.

“We squeaked by (in the November election). I don’t know what I would have done if Biden had lost. It crossed my mind to move to another country,” she said. “I couldn’t believe that this great nation had sunk so low. I’ll never forgive the people that voted for him (President Donald Trump), ever. I have an angry place inside of me now. I hope it doesn’t kill me.”

Nancy Sinatra is no stranger to this type of extremist rhetoric. Apparently unfamiliar with the Second Amendment to the Constitution, she blamed law abiding gun owners for the horrific 2017 massacre at a country music festival on the Las Vegas strip. The killer, meticulously plotted and executed the mass killings then shot himself. “The murderous members of the NRA should face a firing squad,” Ms. Sinatra was quoted as saying.

Radical Virginia Gov., AG cancel gun shows

November 20, 2020

Virginia dems bow to anti-Second Amendment gun restrictions that were fundamental to the Harris/Biden campaign

The state of Virginia stands as a testament to decay. The Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson, a brilliant Virginian who served as third President of the United States from 1801 to 1809. He was responsible for doubling the size of the United States by successfully brokering the Louisiana Purchase, land previously owned by France. He also founded the University of Virginia.

Virginia patriots served in the Continental Army and fought against Great Britain, eventually leading to the British surrender at Yorktown, Virginia.

The Second Amendment, ensuring the right to bear arms, was ratified in 1791. Virginia is one of 44 states that have the right to “bear arms” embedded in their own constitutions. Virginia’s law reads much like the U.S. Constitution.

Fast forward to 2020, where freedom takes a sharp left turn. Virginia’s democrat governor and attorney general have cancelled ‘The Nation’s Gun Show,’ scheduled for this weekend, November 20, 21 & 22 at the Dulles Expo Center. Read the notice here. The event was expected to draw 25,000 people who intended to exercise not only their First Amendment rights to assemble freely, but also their Second Amendment rights.

Attorney General Mark Herring is a gun restrictionist who repeatedly refers to constitutional firearms proponents as “the gun lobby,” as seen in this earlier press release.

Gov. Ralph Northam, another democrat, was able to get seven of his gun control bills passed in the Virginia House of Delegates as reported by Breitbart News.

Northam, who opposes the death penalty for the most vicious criminals, can’t pretend his opposition to the Second Amendment is to save lives. As SRAZ previously pointed out, Northam, a onetime medical doctor who specialized in pediatric neurology, condones abortions up until birth, more correctly described as infanticide.

Hypocrisy has its home in the democrat party.

REMINDER TO OUR READERS: SRAZ has established a new policy. The word “democrat” or its derivatives will no longer be capitalized on this site.

Mark Kelly, AZ Dem senate candidate wanted ex-wife jailed

November 1, 2020

2004 custody dispute court records contradict autobiographical claims of an ‘amicable’ divorce

Many of us remember our parents eagerly awaiting the weekly sitcom known as “The Honeymooners,” starring Jackie Gleason as Ralph Kramden. His well known one liner of exasperation aimed as his wife was, “One of these days, Alice…one of these days…ZOOM…to the Moon!”

Although former astronaut Mark Kelly and current AZ Democrat Senate candidate bears a closer resemblance to creepy Uncle Fester on the “The Addams Family,” he chose to imitate a “Ralph Kramden approach” when it came to his relationship with Amelia, (aka: Amy) his first wife and mother of their two daughters. The Washington Free Beacon reports on the sordid Kelly divorce.

A Galveston, Texas court approved Amelia Kelly’s temporary restraining order against Mark Kelly on Jun. 8, 2004. “[U]nless Mark E. Kelly is immediately restrained from the commission of the act(s) hereinafter prohibited, [he] will commit such act(s) before notice of the hearing on temporary injunction can be served and a hearing had,” the judge in the case wrote.

The court order barred Kelly from communicating with his ex-wife in a “vulgar, profane, obscene or indecent language,” placing anonymous threatening phone calls to her, “causing bodily injury to [her] or the children,” threatening his ex-wife and damaging their property. It also gave his ex-wife temporary custody of the children.

Though Kelly characterized the divorce as “amicable,” the facts tell a very different story.

Kelly and Gabrielle Giffords have repeatedly claimed they met during a 2003 Young Leaders Forum — Kelly was an astronaut and Giffords a Democrat U.S. Rep. representing Tucson — without mentioning it was an all expenses paid indoctrination retreat in China, hosted by the Chinese People’s Institute of Foreign Affairs. He left his wife shortly thereafter.

Three of his fellow astronauts are no fans of Kelly, and endorsed incumbent Sen. Martha McSally as revealed in this Red State report, headlined,Ouch! Three Astronauts Endorse AZ’s GOP Senator Over Her Astronaut Senate Challenger.”

Mark Kelly, a hypocrite who exempts himself from his well-known Second Amendment restrictions, chairs Giffords PAC which funds far left national congressional candidates who join him in wanting to restrict our gun rights. Unworthy of trust, George Soros-funded Mark Kelly has also accumulated $millions from his nefarious business dealing with China.

The far-left Arizona Republic newspaper has ignored the revolting actions of Mark Kelly, while working double-time attempting to tarnish the image of U.S. Rep. Debbie Lesko (AZ CD-8). Her crime? She’s a popular conservative, with an extensive leadership background in the Arizona legislature prior to being elected to congress.

Incumbent Sen. Martha McSally, endorsed by President Trump, deserves your vote. Mark Kelly has nothing and no one to recommend him.

Tired of having your intelligence insulted? If you still subscribe to the Trump-hating Arizona Republic, it’s past time to cancel. Call 1-800-332-6733.

Mark Kelly: Misplaced his party affiliation heading to election

October 24, 2020

U.S. Senate wannabe Mark Kelly revealed as a political impostor extraordinaire

It’s nine days until Nov. 3, 2020…Election Day. Many Arizonans have already voted by early ballot. Others prefer the time-honored tradition of casting their vote in person at a polling place. We’re inundated with campaign ads and our mailboxes are filled with flyers. Candidates proudly note their party affiliation, targeting registered voters politically aligned with them. They spend a lot of money, especially in U.S. Senate races.

This year the Arizona ballot lists two candidates running for a single senate seat in a special election. Republican incumbent Sen. Martha McSally, a former two-term member of congress was appointed by Gov. Doug Ducey to fill the remaining term of Sen. John McCain. A retired Air Force Colonel, and graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, she was the first female pilot to lead a fighter squadron into a war zone. McSally is being challenged by Democrat Mark Kelly in one of the nation’s costliest and most watched races. President Donald Trump has unequivocally endorsed Sen. McSally and she has appeared with him at campaign events.

Kelly, an open-border proponent and socialized medicine supporter, funded by radically left, $multi-billion Super PAC Act Blue, has slickly omitted his party affiliation from his ads, a devious trick that worked for Arizona’s other senator, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema.

Kelly, an Obama associate, is the founder of Giffords PACa Second Amendment restrictionist group targeting national Republican candidates, calls for stricter gun controls and vows to oppose what he refers to as “the gun lobby.” Though he sounds like a Democrat, Kelly would like us to believe he has mysteriously lost his affiliation with the Democrat Party.

The importance of this race cannot be overstated, since it will affect partisan control of the U.S. Senate. Thirty-five of 100 seats are up for election, including two special elections. As of October 2020, Republicans have a 53-45 majority over Democrats in the Senate. Independents, who caucus with the Democrats, hold the two remaining seats. 

Mark Kelly, recently exposed by three fellow astronauts who served with him as ill-equipped for the senate,* declaring “Astronaut can’t hide Kelly’s leftist agenda.” Kelly was then given nearly a half-page column space in the desperate attempt to oust Republicans, Arizona Republic newspaper. It runs his latest deception appearing under the headline: “I won’t be a Democrat or Republican senator.”

Why then is Mark Kelly listed as a Democrat on the ballot? When will he file a lawsuit against the Elections Department for being erroneously labeled?

Mark Kelly forced to apologize for anti-police press spokesman

October 16, 2020

Arizonans who watched Republican Sen. Martha McSally debate Soros-funded Dem challenger Mark Kelly know his often repeated line, memorized and recited by rote like a school boy, was “My parents were both police officers.”

How odd then, that he is now apologizing for his deputy press spokesman T.J. L’Heureux’s obscene twitter comment about police. Kelly, with deep business and financial ties to Communist China, apologized Thursday for  L’Heureux’s earlier tweet calling Chicago officers “worthless f—ing pigs.”

The obviously unvetted radical L’Heureux who previously was a press advisor for former 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, is getting passed around like a damp towel in a San Francisco bathhouse.

L’Heureux’s tweet, clearly revealing his true feelings, was posted a week before he was hired as Mark Kelly’s deputy press spokesman…now being referred to as a “junior staffer.” It came in response to a video showing Chicago officers seizing open umbrellas from pillaging street thugs during a violent encounter as the mob worked to topple a statue of Christopher Columbus. A city official later stated the BLM protesters and Antifa had used the umbrellas as weapons and to shield their faces from view as they pelted police with frozen water bottles, bricks, rocks, pipes and explosive fireworks. Forty-nine police officers were injured, many seriously.

Had any of those officers had been Mark Kelly’s mother or father, we would hope his response would have been less insipid. But bought-and-paid-for candidate Kelly can’t veer too far from the Dem’s party line, which vilifies and calls for defunding our dedicated police — intertwined with his own anti-Second Amendment Giffords PAC agenda, which leave law-abiding Americans as vulnerable sitting ducks.

The “worthless f—ing pigs” post was removed Thursday morning from L’Heureux’s account, which was then made private. He also needs to be removed from Kelly’s payroll.
