Dems fail in D.C. statehood power grab

June 27, 2020

It was bound to happen. On the rising tide of racial divide following the martyrdom of George Floyd, a career criminal who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer responding to a call of Floyd attempting to pay for merchandise with a counterfeit twenty dollar bill. The death was unnecessary and the former officer is in jail, charged with second-degree felony murder. Three other officers who witnessed the knee to Floyd’s neck are unreasonably facing third-degree murder charges. One was newly hired.

Floyd had been incarcerated multiple times on robbery and narcotics sale convictions. His autopsy report revealed he tested positive for COVID-19 and had numerous drugs including cocaine, fentanyl, cannabis, morphine and oxycotin in his system. Though far from a sterling character, his death was the impetus for riots, arson and looting across the country. It has expanded into an excuse for calls to defund police departments nationwide and destroy historic monuments in what amounts to a cultural revolution by leftists lacking in knowledge of American history as they elevate Floyd to hero status.

The most recent affront is being perpetrated by congressional Democrats who are now pushing for statehood for Washington, D.C. There is a method to their madness. If such a vote were to pass the senate, we would have a minority majority state, where black voters, mostly democrats would alter the dynamics of the U.S. House and Senate.

In a patently partisan 232-180 vote, the U.S. House on Friday approved legislation granting statehood to Washington, D.C. A single Democrat, Collin Peterson (MN) voted against H.R. 51. There is no chance of passage through the Republican controlled Senate, which adheres to the fact that such a move is unconstitutional, since the nation’s founders established the city as a neutral zone outside the influence of state politics for co-equal sovereign states to come together to transact the nation’s business.

The bill violates the 23rd Amendment, which grants D.C. residents the right to vote in presidential elections. That is of no consequence to the Democrat magicians. Their presto-chango legislation included a swift vote to repeal the 23rd Amendment.


AZ Republic: Pride goeth before a fall, as it begs for “donations”

June 22, 2020

Move to all digital publication is imminent

As we’ve frequently pointed out, the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic newspaper has fallen on hard times. The reality was substantiated by The Phoenix Business Journal in this November 2019 report titled,Analysis: Arizona Republic’s circulation decline among steepest for Gannett papers.”

The deterioration has grown more acute since then. The anorexic pretense posing as a newspaper is staffed by ASU Cronkite J School interns who have replaced longtime reporters. Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist, Steve Benson, who accommodatingly switched gears from conservative to leftist, was abruptly kicked to the curb as unaffordable. The remaining skeletal staff following mass firings, furloughs and staring down a nonexistent future voted to unionize. The newspaper’s dire circumstances were predicted in AZ Republic: homeless vagrant on borrowed time.

Blithely undisturbed by the daily’s daily flubs, exemplified by this monumental list of Corrections and Clarifications, is the inanely grinning executive editor Greg Burton — except when comparing his remaining staff tocrackpots and criminals.” He puts on a happy face to thank the dwindling number of readers overpaying for being fed leftist slop as he prizes newsroom diversity above factual reporting while promising more of the same to subscribers. Sunday’s edition carries a preposterous editorial clamoring for gifting reparation to blacks for slavery, which was abolished 155 years ago in 1865 through the adoption of the Thirteenth Amendment.

In a full page ad, the same edition of the failing newspaper deviously reveals the latest incarnation of the desperate publication which is unable to afford the myriad costs associated with producing and delivering hard copies. It’s gearing up to go all digital, which will not sit well with its remaining mostly senior citizen subscribers who prefer the delivered paper on the driveway. The newspaper honchos admitted irate readers dropped their subscriptions after its 2016 Hillary endorsement, leading it to abandon its roundly ignored endorsement policy altogether. The effects of going all digital will make that calamity look like a cakewalk.

Here’s its pathetic pitch:

Everything You Love About the Paper And More.

Enjoy reading the Arizona Republic print edition online. With the e-Edition, you get access to a digital edition of our paper and extra features.

Available 24/7. Give your eyes a break and let the e-Edition read the articles to you.

Then, in what can only be described as a mega-dose of chutzpah, an accompanying page sporting 4-inch high capital letters and bankrolled by Google, blasts “SUPPORT LOCAL NEWS,” actually pleading for folks to subscribe, advertise and…donate.  Conveniently blaming the decline in revenue on the Corona-19 virus, the newspaper, through its left-wing mouthpiece admits it’s losing money and now considers itself a charity.  Don’t be conned. 

 


Lawlessness takes root in Dem run cities & Update

June 12, 2020

America’s education establishment, controlled by Leftists, bears responsibility      

As Antifa political thugs take over American cities rioting, looting and now toppling historic monuments, it’s important to recognize that many ot the anarchists who align with the group identify as communists and socialists. Yet their goal far supersedes advancing a political agenda. Instead, they are committed to obliterating those they consider fascists, — mainstream American citizens, often conservative Republicans.

Under-educated in today‘s far left public schools, they abhor law enforcement, our legal system and public institutions, and justify using violence to prevent law abiding Americans from exercising such constitutionally enshrined First Amendment rights as free speech or public assembly. As far back as 2016, the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities asdomestic terrorist violence.”

Many are young, members of Generation Z, lacking memory of events we considered transformative, such as September 11, 2001 and not having it, or basic American history included in school curriculum. In seizing six city blocks of Seattle, (Hannity video) including the now abandoned police department, which they have renamed CHAZ* (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone) the mob is now in control. 

Their List of Demands is preposterous, illustrating their abysmal lack of understanding the fundamentals of what has made America a beacon of hope since the Declaration of Independence was ratified on July 4, 1776.

Though many Americans are riveted, watching the raw hubris exemplified by aggression and hostility to what has made America great, focus should be directed to the fundamental causes.  Teachers unions have been donors to the radical left for decades and the proliferation of fatherless homes have corresponded to the increase in crime.

To more fully comprehend the depth of the left’s tentacles into the educational demise, read the enlightening,Witness to Public Schools Brainwashing,” posted on American Greatness. It’s an outstanding insight.

*As of June 14, 2020, the lawless area has been renamed Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) by the mobsters who have not only not been forcibly removed from the 6-block area, but the city of Seattle has caved in to their outrageous demands providing no inducement to leave. Instead of removing these lawless squatters, the radical leftist city leaders, whose priorities are skewed, have brought in portable toilets and are supplying them with free food, as businesses in the multi-block area remain shuttered and their owners suffer.


Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s egocentric big gamble

May 6, 2020

Americans deserve better than seriously ill 87-year-old

Years ago there was a televised game show known as ‘Beat the Clock.’ The premise involved contestants trying to complete challenges to win prizes before the clicking clock ran out of time. Justice Ginsburg must have been a fan.

According to this terse May 5, 2020 press release from the Supreme Court of the United States, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is back in the hospital.  What appears to be a serious condition, especially at age 87, is made to sound like a walk in the park.  She’ll be teleconferencing oral arguments from her hospital bed, we are told. Ginsburg earlier survived several bouts of colon and pancreatic cancer.

Two previous press releases attest to her deteriorating health, this one dated August 23, 2019. After three months of silence the next “update” was November 23, 2019. Promised further updates from PIO Kathleen Arberg were never posted. Apparently the American people are looked upon as mushrooms, by the SCOTUS PR Department. Our role is to be kept in the dark and fed manure.

In 2018 Ginsburg stated her intention to stay on the court for five more years, hoping to surpass what she believes to be President Trump’s time in office. She pointed to the example of Justice John Paul Stevens, who retired at 90.

“I am sure she wants to stay on the court until the end of the Trump presidency if she can,” said Erwin Chemerinsky, the dean of the law school at the University of California, Berkeley, and a liberal who called on Ginsburg to retire in 2014, when Barack Obama was president and Democrats controlled the Senate.

The undercurrents are many. Ginsburg, a radical leftist former ACLU lawyer, was appointed to the high court by Bill Clinton. Her dream, that never materialized, was for her successor to be appointed by Hillary Clinton, another blunderous miscalculation since Donald Trump clobbered the scandal-plagued Democrat standard bearer. 

Meanwhile, the ancient extremist, who has been videotaped saying she’s not a fan of the U.S. Constitution, and has fallen asleep when she’s expected to be alert, continues to hang on by a tenuous thread, hoping demented Biden will name her replacement.

Her glib reason for falling asleep during Barack Obama’s 2015 State of the Union speech was that she’d had too much to drink before attending andwas not 100% sober.” (video admission.) The political double standard was evidenced by newscasters who found that comment to be humorous.  Does anyone believe their reaction would have been the same if those words were uttered by a 90-year-old Republican justice? CNN slickly dubbed the outrageous episode “Power napping.”


Fact-free politics exemplified by Dem. Mark Kelly

April 27, 2020

Beware of Soros funded Democrats bearing deceit

Before he retired, far too young at age 88, Dr. Thomas Sowell, the brilliant economist and conservative surveyor of the American scene wrote a column titled, “Fact-Free Politics.” Although this particular commentary, written prior to the Wuhan Coronavirus global pandemic, dealt with science and economics, his premise remains relevant in these unprecedented times, when healthy Americans are quarantined — unable to go to work or school — due to a virus that originated in China while the rest of the world was subjected to its misinformation campaign.

The relevance exists because election year politics never take a break. Widespread unemployment doesn’t affect candidates who emulate China and flood the airwaves with distorted disinformation. 

Democrat Mark Kelly, the unemployed husband of former AZ U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, has a variation on Cinderella’s fairy godmother, who provided her with a gold coach and enabled her to go to the ball and meet Prince Charming. Kelly’s Socialist benefactor George Soros, facilitates Kelly’s fundraising through his over 206 U. S. sub-rosa organizations. Act Blue, which has hosted D.C. fundraisers for Kelly, isn’t on this list.

Kelly began running ads in March in advance of the August 4, primary election. They are filled with slick copy aimed at erasing his leftism, falsely portraying him as a savior when it comes to drug prices and never using the hot button word “Democrat,” a slick deception that worked successfully for far left Kyrsten Sinema, who magically reinvented herself as a senate candidate. For a memory jogger, we direct you toKyrsten Sinema’s devious metamorphosis.” It lays the groundwork for Mark Kelly’s deceptive political tactics.

This is the March 31, 2020 mandated Federal Election Commission report. It’s been reported that many of John McCain’s top donors have shifted their allegiance to Democrat Kelly, which should not surprise anyone who‘s been paying attention.

President Trump has unequivocally endorsed incumbent Republican Sen. Martha McSally, even inviting her to share the stage with him at his spectacular Feb. 19th Phoenix rally.

Voters shouldn’t be conned by Kelly’s ads falsely claiming he will bring down the price of prescription drugs. What he actually is committed to bringing down is President Trump, who he acknowledged he would have voted to impeach in the Democrat-led Senate sham. That fakery drove his fundraising efforts among leftists who desire to turn Arizona blue.  Democrats are motivated by their desperation to hamstring President Trump’s judicial appointments. During his first term, he replaced two retiring Supreme Court Justices with Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, who desperate Senate Dems tried in vain to destroy. He’s filled federal bench vacancies with constitutionalists, fulfilling his promise to appoint judges who will protect and honor the Constitution and the rule of law.

Mark Kelly is a hand-picked soldier in the hard left cabal intent on flipping the senate and restricting American’s Second Amendment rights.

Kelly, along with wife Giffords, operates the major gun control groups* Giffords PAC which between its hybrid PAC and 501(c)(4) nonprofit Giffords, spent nearly $7 million to aid Democrat congressional candidates in 2018. Watch for those restrictive efforts to intensify.

AZ 2nd Amendment rally at state capitol draws massive crowd

February 16, 2020

One place you can be sure AZ U.S. Senate candidate Mark Kelly didn’t show his face was at the Second Amendment rally at the state capitol Saturday. Far leftist, Soros-supported Kelly, who is running as a Democrat for a U.S. Senate seat occupied by Sen. Martha McSally, is a gun restrictionist, who with his wife, former AZ U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, founded organizations whose ultimate purpose is gun confiscation.

Many of the thousands of attendees at the event wore shirts emblazoned with the words, “Gun control is not about guns, it’s about control.”

Kelly, along with Giffords, runs the major gun control-focused group Giffords PAC,* which between its hybrid PAC and 501(c)(4) nonprofit Giffords,* spent nearly $7 million to aid Democrat congressional candidates, while targeting Republicans in 2018.

This Feb. 2019 SRAZ post,Mark Kelly, AZ gun hypocrite, announces for US Senate,” exposes Democrats and their gun hypocrisy. Breitbart News, following a tip, photographed Mark Kelly making personal gun purchases at a Tucson gun store.

The high citizen turnout at AZ’s 7th annual “Celebrate and Protect the Second Amendment rally was driven by concerns over gun control legislation introduced by Democrats this session intended to limit firearm sales and transfers, expand background checks and ban high capacity rifles. Read Senate Bill 1624.

Gun restrictionist Mark Kelly is challenging Arizona incumbent Republican Sen. McSally. A graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, she previously represented Arizona’s second congressional district for two terms in the House of Representatives. She served 26 years in the U.S. Air Force, retiring in 2010 as a full Colonel. As the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat and first to command a fighter squadron in combat in U.S. history, she respects the unique right we have as American citizens enshrined in the Second Amendment.

Arizonans who value their constitutional based rights understand the importance of this election.

Why do Dems have an aversion to God?

February 2, 2020

Watch as Democrats delete God from congressional proceedings as witnesses are sworn in:

 

This is not new for them. Remember the chaos that erupted at the 2012 Democrat National Convention over the insertion of the word “God” or the recognition of Jerusalem into their platform? Seeing Red AZ covered the shameful episode then. Even those conducting the meeting were confounded as the boorish delegates loudly protested and booed.

 

Although our founding documents did not endorse a specific religion, they do acknowledge God. The two key founding documents in American history are the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The first explains why we exist as a nation. Not only does the Declaration mention God four times, most importantly, it says that our rights come from the Creator.

In President George Washington’s first proclamation in 1789, declaring a national day of Thanksgiving, he referenced God 16 times.

He obviously wasn’t a Democrat.


Latest scheme to derail Pres. Trump has flaky fingerprints

January 2, 2020

Impeachment plot has a new, out-of-office colluder

The shifty, downcast eyes, crooked nose and the finger thrust pensively lip-ward looked familiar, but it’s been a while since we’ve seen the extraordinarily unpopular one-term Republicrat Sen. Jeff Flake. He was so detested, he had to forego running for reelection due to abysmal 18% approval ratings in his home state.

To call Jeff Flake out for his arrogant disconnect with Arizona voters would be the height of understatement. To compound his spiteful, deceitful nature and his alliance with Barack Obama, he is also a dedicated anti-Trumper, suffering a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Now Flake has reemerged with a nefarious impeachment scheme, turning the Constitution on its head, exposed by Cheryl K. Chumley, author and opinion editor for The Washington Times. She begins her vitally important column with these words: “There’s a new impeachment strategy to oust President Donald Trump from office that’s floating about town and it’s one that goes like this: Vote. In. Secret.”

It’s imperative we are armed with this crucial information as we begin 2020. Take time to read,Trump haters floating secret Senate impeachment trial vote are cowardly anti-Americans.”

After you read it, send it on to other patriotic Americans on your list and urge them to do the same. Be a link to exposing this latest plot to remove President Trump, which began in earnest following his inauguration and continues despite his massive list of accomplishments on behalf of the American people.


Dems prioritize impeachment,except when golf’s on 

December 14, 2019

Distraught Democrats, who began discussing the prospect of impeaching President Donald Trump immediately after his inauguration, have made good on their promise, while kicking the Constitution in the shins. Unable to get over their angst that scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election, they’ve come up with novel, politically motivated charges in the articles of impeachment they’ve brought against the Republican president: one for abuse of power and a second for obstruction of Congress. The surging economy and record employment numbers are not on their retribution focused minds.

The Dems are moving at breakneck speed, hoping to beat the 2020 election clock while overturning the 2016 vote they despised. The other compelling force is the impending loss of ailing, 86-year-old Supreme Court Associate Justice, former ACLU lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It would be unthinkable to them if President Trump made a third appointment to the high court, definitively altering the composite for decades to come. These impeachment obsessed leftists take their jobs seriously. Nothing can diminish their dedication…except a good golf game, as Louisiana Democrat U.S. Rep. Cedric Levon Richmond demonstrates. He’s definitely got his priorities in order, and a guy who forges his own path. When he and his bride married, they registered for gifts at Williams Sonoma and Babies R Us.

Mark Levin, Alan Dershowitz agree impeachment is a sham

December 9, 2019

Political opposites find agreement on impeachment

If you missed Sunday’s Mark Levin program, “Life, Liberty & Levin” we are happy to bring you the important interview with Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz, a self described liberal. Although he admits voting for Hillary Clinton, Dershowitz describes impeaching President Trump under the current circumstances as an example of political tyranny, questioning the ethics of the U.S. House.

The article,Liberal attorney Alan Dershowitz: Dems’ impeachment case doesn’t meet any credible legal standard,“ is well worth your time…especially today.

This, and more, are all available on The Blaze.
