Irony Alert: Merchant Celebrating Bernie Sanders Makes Money ... Capitalism


I could not pass up writing about this. At the Orpheum Theater Bernie Sanders event, people all over were selling ... stuff.

They were using free enterprise, free markets, trade, exchange, i.e. capitalism to make money.

And yet they want to celebrate a politician who believes in socialism and forced redistribution of wealth. Can anyone see the irony in any of this?



Arizona State University: Dump Antifa!


This is how you deal with Antifa!

Resist their hate and stand for the truth! No more fascism that pretends that it is not!

It still amazes me--and disturbs me, to boot--that Antifa of any kind still has dominance anywhere in this country, or even a meager presence.

Arizona for Trump confronted these brute, fascist thugs as peacefully as possible, and yet still the assault and battered members of our team.

We owe the ASU Police thanks for taking down one of their numbers and hauling him to jail. We expect to see more of these selfish socialist bigots to go to jail very soon and disappear for the long term.

Dump Antifa!

New Mexico Democratic Party in Free Fall: Crooked, Corrupt, Incompetent

Michelle Lujan Grisham and New Mexico Democrats RIGGED the primary...How can they be trusted to lead our state if they can't hold a fair primary?-2.jpg

The Democrats are at it again. They rigged their presidential primary for Hillary Rodham Clinton and, this past Saturday, three Democrat gubernatorial candidates accused Michelle Lujan Grisham and New Mexico Democrats of riggingtheir primary for governor!

On Tuesday, New Mexico Democrat Party Chairman Richard Ellenberg resignedafter protecting sexual harassers and misconduct bubbled to the surface, but not before making sure he delivered the preprimary convention results Michelle Lujan Grisham demanded.

The DPNM chaos has only spread as questions of "alleged bribes" to delegates were made.

New Mexico Democrats believe they have the governor's seat in the bag. They believe New Mexico will be blue come November. 

​We must pull all our resources together and show Democrats that we Republicans stand firm against the Democrat's corruption and Liberal Lies. Help RPNM by donating just $5, $10, or even $25 dollars today!

Your support is critical to stopping Democrats in November and showing Liberals that we won't let them rig the system to put Michelle Lujan Grisham and her liberal agenda in office. 

If New Mexico Democrats and Michelle Lujan Grisham can’t be trusted to hold a fair primary, how can they be trusted to lead the state?

AG Jeff Sessions to California Peace Officers Association, March 7, 2018, Sacramento

Thank you, Mark for that kind introduction, for your leadership with the CPOA, and most all for your 22 years of service in law enforcement.

I also want to thank all of the other law enforcement leaders who are here today:
  • Sheriff Bill Brown of the California State Sheriffs’ Association
  • Chief Ed Medrano of the California Police Chiefs Association
  • Mark Brewster of the California Narcotic Officers Association
  • District Attorney Todd Riebe of the California District Attorneys Association, and
  • Commissioner Warren Stanley of the California Highway Patrol.
It is a special honor to be with the California Peace Officers' Association. 

With nearly a century of history, and more than 16,000 members, CPOA represents the core of California’s law enforcement community.

I know, first hand, the importance of the work that you do.  I know its dangers, challenges, frustrations, and satisfactions. I have had years of firsthand experience working with your colleagues. And while I have inexpressible pride in our fabulous federal law officers, I am fully aware that 85 percent of all law enforcement officers are state, local, and tribal.

And I am well aware that the increased training, professionalism, leadership, and more effective enforcement policies of our departments nationwide, and over several decades, has been the critical factor in reversing the dramatic rise in crime that we saw throughout the 1970s. 

Over a 22 year period, we saw homicide rates cut in half, youth drug use fall by almost half, and violent crime fall dramatically.  It was an achievement few would have ever expected.

Much of the transformative leadership for this change arose from your former Governor and our President Ronald Reagan—aided by his fabulous California counselor and later Attorney General, Ed Meese. 

Maybe in recent years we got complacent and took our eye off the ball, but recent trends are deeply worrisome. 

In 2014 and 2015 violent crime stopped falling and jumped seven percent nationwide. 

Homicide surged 20 percent, the largest increase since 1968.  And drug availability rose dramatically, lethal purity reached unprecedented levels while prices fell.  And along with the new killer drug, fentanyl, overdose deaths reached levels we have never seen before—66,000 deaths last year. 

That is why on my first day in office, President Trump sent me three executive orders:  (1) to back the women and men in blue, (2) to reduce crime in America, and (3) to dismantle transnational criminal gangs. 

We at the Department of Justice embrace these goals.  I know you do too.

Let me be explicit: our express goal is to reduce the violent crime rate, reduce the homicide rate, reduce the amount of opioids prescribed, and reduce overdose deaths.

Let’s resolve to achieve these goals. Ours is not just a job, but our sworn duty, and for many of us, a high calling.

And a lawful immigration system that serves the national interest helps us achieve these goals and more. That’s what we need to talk about today.

We are a strong, prosperous, and orderly nation.  And such a nation must have a lawful system of immigration.  I am not aware of any advanced nation that does not understand this fundamental tenet.

And let no one contend that we reject immigration and want to “wall off America” from all lawful immigration.  President Trump and the American people know what’s happening.  We admit 1.1 million immigrants lawfully to permanent legal status—green card status—every year, the highest numbers in the world. 

Indeed, at this unprecedented rate we will soon have the largest percentage of non-native born in our nation’s history with the percentage continuing to rise every year thereafter.

Thus, the good and decent people of this country are right to insist that this country should end the illegality, create a rational immigration flow, and protect the nation from criminal aliens.

It cannot be that someone who illegally crosses the border and two days later arrives in Sacramento, Dubuque, Louisville, and Central Islip is home free—never to be removed.

It cannot be the policy of a great nation to up and reward those who unlawfully enter its country with legal status, Social Security, welfare, food stamps, and work permits. Meanwhile those who engage in this process lawfully and patiently and wait their turn are discriminated against at every turn.

Most Americans get this.  They are working hard to make ends meet, follow the rules, and try to keep their loved ones safe. 

They, our citizens, want our government to think about them for a change to consider their interests.  They have dreams too.  Frankly, this commonsense concept was a key factor in President Trump’s election.  Elections have consequences. 

Immigration law is the province of the federal government.  This Administration and this Justice Department are determined to make it work effectively for the people.

I understand that we have a wide variety of political opinions out there on immigration.  But the law is in the books and its purpose is clear.

There is no nullification.  There is no secession.  Federal law is “the supreme law of the land.”  I would invite any doubters to Gettysburg, and to the graves of John C. Calhoun and Abraham Lincoln.

A refusal to apprehend and deport those, especially the criminal element, effectively rejects all immigration law and creates an open borders system.  Open borders is a radical, irrational idea that cannot be accepted. 

The United States of America is not “an idea;” it is a secular nation-state with a Constitution, laws, and borders, all of which are designed to protect our nation’s interests. Surely, we should be able to agree on this much. 

To carry out the intent of our laws, we need law officers.  We need our Immigration and Customs Officers and our Customs and Border Protection officers.  They are your brothers and sisters. President Trump, the Congress, and the American people want them to accomplish the goals our laws set out for them. That’s why we pay them.

But, California, we have a problem.  A series of actions and events has occurred that directly and adversely impact the work of our federal officers.

For example, the mayor of Oakland has been actively seeking to help illegal aliens avoid apprehension by ICE.  Her actions support those who flout our laws and boldly validate the illegality. There’s no other way to interpret her remarks. 

To make matters worse, the elected Lieutenant Governor of this state praised her for doing so.  Bragging about and encouraging the obstruction of our law enforcement and the law is an embarrassment to this proud and important state.

Tom Homan, Acting Director of ICE has said that “being a law enforcement officer is already dangerous enough, but to give the criminals a heads up that we're coming in the next 24 hours increases that risk.  I watch [the mayor’s] statement when she said her priority is the safety of her community, but what she did has the exact opposite effect.”

According to Acting Director Homan, ICE failed to make 800 arrests that they would have made if the mayor had not acted as she did. 

Those are 800 wanted aliens that are now at large in that community—most are wanted criminals that ICE will now have to pursue with more difficulty in more dangerous situations, all because of one mayor’s irresponsible action.

So here’s my message to Mayor Schaaf: How dare you.  How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of law enforcement just to promote your radical open borders agenda. 

But in California, we have an even bigger problem than just one mayor.  The problems continue.

For example, in January, Ventura County declined a request from ICE to hold an alien Ventura had arrested for continuous sexual abuse of a child. Instead of being removed from this country, he was released back into the community and now our federal law enforcement will need to find him and arrest him wherever he may be.

In recent years, California has enacted a number of laws designed to intentionally obstruct the work of our sworn immigration enforcement officers—to intentionally use every power it has to undermine duly-established immigration law in America.

California won’t let employers voluntarily allow ICE agents on their property.  And California requires employers to give notice to employees before ICE inspects their workplace. 

When this law was before the California General Assembly, a Judiciary Committee report explicitly stated that its goal was to frustrate “an expected increase in federal immigration enforcement actions.”

ICE agents are federal law enforcement officers carrying out federal law.  California cannot forbid them or obstruct them in doing their jobs.

Just imagine if a state passed a law forbidding employers from cooperating with OSHA in ensuring workplace safety.  Or the EPA, looking for a polluter.  That would obviously be absurd.  But it would be no different in principle from this new law enacted by California.

And just think about the situation it puts California employers in.  They want to help law enforcement.  They want to do their civic duty.  We ought to encourage that. 

But your state attorney general has repeatedly said his office will prosecute these business owners.  Let me quote: “ignorance of the law is no excuse if you violate it” and “you are subjecting yourself to up to $10,000 [in fines] for violations.”

California has also claimed the authority to inspect facilities where ICE holds people in custody.  Already this year, California has specifically and in a discriminatory manner targeted six facilities and demanded documents and other material from the Department of Homeland Security.

California won’t let law enforcement officers like you transfer prisoners into ICE custody or even communicate with ICE that you’re about to release someone they’re looking for.  Remember that California found these people dangerous enough to detain them in the first place, but then insists on releasing them back into the community instead of allowing federal officers to remove them. 

And rather than allow ICE officers to do their jobs at the jailhouse, they force these officers to conduct far more dangerous arrests elsewhere—where violent criminals may reside and where children can be caught in the crossfire.

That’s not just unconstitutional, it’s a plain violation of federal statute and common sense.

Importantly, these laws are harmful to Californians, and they’re especially harmful to law enforcement.

That’s why the Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit yesterday against the state of California to invalidate these unjust laws and to immediately freeze their effect.  Federal agents must be able to do the job that Congress has directed them to do.

Contrary to what you might hear from the lawless open borders radicals, we are not asking California, Oakland, or anyone else to enforce immigration laws. 

Although we would welcome the positive assistance the majority of jurisdictions in America provide, ICE agents do incredible work every day.  They will not be deterred.

We are simply asking California and other sanctuary jurisdictions to stop actively obstructing federal law enforcement. 

Stop treating immigration agents differently from everybody else for the purpose of eviscerating border controls and advancing an open borders philosophy shared by only the most radical extremists.  Stop protecting lawbreakers and giving all officers more dangerous work to do so that a few politicians can score political points on the backs of officer safety.

You are professionals.  You understand the risks involved. 

Think about the officers knocking on a door to execute a warrant.  They don’t know what’s on the other side.  It’s not fair to them to keep putting them in that situation by releasing criminal aliens into the community who shouldn’t even be in the country.  I sign condolence letters for law enforcement killed in the line of duty; I fundamentally reject, at my core, that we should further endanger the lives of those who risk everything for us just because some officials in California wants to violate the law in promotion of their radical agenda. 

California is using every power it has—and some it doesn’t—to frustrate federal law enforcement. So you can be sure I’m going to use every power I have to stop them.

We are going to fight these irrational, unfair, and unconstitutional policies that have been imposed on you and our federal officers.  We are fighting to make your jobs safer and to help you reduce crime in America.  We are fighting to have a lawful system of immigration that serves Americans. And we intend to win.

I want to close by reiterating my deep appreciation and profound thanks to all the women and men of law enforcement—federal, state, local, and tribal.  The work that you do—that you have dedicated your lives to—is essential.  I believe it.  The Department of Justice believes it.  And President Trump believes it.

You can be certain about this: we have your back and you have our thanks.

Election 2018: Rosendale Takes on Liberal Jon Tester on 13 Promises

Rosendale for U.S. Senate
You may have seen it... Jon Tester put out a video claiming he's been working with President Trump.
It's deceptive.
The reality is Jon Tester has voted against the President on some of the most critical legislation facing our nation today. All he’s really been doing is playing politics with his pals Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi in Washington.
It’s become Jon Tester’s M.O. to say one thing to Montanans, but do something entirely different in D.C. I’m tired of it, and I know you are too.
In his video, Tester claims he’s worked with the President on 13 occasions. We know that’s not true, and is an example of his shady tactics in Washington… In fact, here are 13 times Tester has opposed President Donald Trump and stood against what's best for Montana.

1. Opposed historic tax reform which has already benefited Montana workers.

2. Opposed Conservative Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

3. Supports dangerous Sanctuary City policies.

4. Supports amnesty for illegal immigrants.

5. Has blocked President Trump's important nominations.

6. Opposes protecting our Second Amendment from liberal gun grabs.

7. Supports propping up Obamacare.

8. Supports socialist programs like single payer health care systems.

9. Voted to KEEP the Death Tax.

10. Supports the dangerous Iran deal.

11. Supports big government spending which has our country spiraling out of control into massive debt.

12. Supports job killing environmental regulations.

13. Opposes building the wall.
Friend,it’s critical for us to garner all the support we can as the 2018 general election approaches. Will you donate today and send a message that you’re sick and tired of Jon Tester’s political games?

Thank you,
Matt Rosendale,
Candidate for U.S. Senate

New Mexico Democratic Party: Grassroots Corruption, Not Democracy

Screen Shot 2018-03-16 at 10.54.48 AM.png

I cried on the way home. After my first Democratic ward meeting, I was mourning our democracy.

In the Democratic Party, delegates are elected to represent districts of their county known as wards. These delegates go on to represent you at the party’s pre-primary convention, during which candidates for the primary are voted onto the ballot and a policy platform for the state is determined.

My ward, 4D, met at the Center for Progress and Justice. While standing in line to get my ballot, I watched volunteers for gubernatorial candidates hand people preprinted cheat sheets of names. They then told attendees to write those lists of names on their ballot as their votes for delegates. Attendees were also asked to write these names in various orders, due to an unusual voting system that wasn’t explained to any of us. As a result, most people had written down their votes before the meeting had begun. After the meeting started, those nominated as delegates weren’t given a chance to address the room.

I witnessed several other acts which I later learned fall within the Democratic Party of New Mexico’s rules: filling in names on other people’s voting cards; nominating people who were not present; keeping people in the final running after they had left early; and the “card trick” – drawing the last two delegates by pulling playing cards from a suspiciously small deck.

Some of the ward meeting’s business did in fact violate the rules and guidelines for the Santa Fe County Democratic Party. I stood in front of the ward chair while she told a woman she could leave her ballot with someone else before the meeting began, which seems at the county level to qualify as proxy voting. And a representative of Congresswoman Michelle Lujan-Grisham, not a member of my ward, was recorded on video writing on other people’s ballots after the meeting started, with state Democratic Party official sitting in the same row.

These grievances might feel like a small and petty list from the observance of small and petty actions, but they are symptoms of a larger problem we need to address: Our habits are selfish and undemocratic.

Since President Donald Trump got elected, local activism and engagement across the country has increased after several decades of emptier and emptier meeting halls. Yet not many people recognize how their undemocratic – even authoritarian – behavior is burning bridges instead of building communities.

After expressing my concerns from my own ward meeting, several people across New Mexico told me stories of rules being selectively enforced in favor of Congresswoman Lujan-Grisham’s campaign for governor, ward chairs trying to force people to vote for particular delegates, using these cheat sheets, and even paying people to be delegates. If that last accusation is true, ward members are selling their vote and are no better than the politicians they accuse of representing private interests rather than communities. That’s grass-roots corruption, not democracy.

Crazy But True: Left-Wing Transgender (and Antifa Member) Muslim in Arizona

I learned about another crazy, creepy left-wing ideologue living in Arizona.

His name? Sumayyah Dawud

The link above goes to his Facebook profile.

I will not write "her" since he can never be a "she" no matter what he wears or what name he gives himself.

Check out his description on Facebook:

Sumayyah Dawud is a human rights activist and independent reporter. She embraced Islam in March 2013 after having studied and explored many world religions. She is a woman who is transgender, was assigned male at birth, and transitioned in November 2010.

Sumayyah has a lifelong passion for speaking out against injustice and standing up for the oppressed. Her activism includes the following: Palestinian liberation, ending all imperialistic wars and intervention in the Middle East, stopping police brutality and racial profiling, combating islamophobia and other forms of hate, prisoner support and advocacy, supporting indigenous people against colonialism, protecting and respecting our environment, advancing working class interests, and advocating for transgender rights and inclusion.

Nothing says "dignity" like
a man dressed as a woman in Islamic garb
demanding protection for unvetted refugees!

Sumayyah strives to learn and implement Islam in all aspects of her life. In February 2014 she earned the top student award at the New Muslim Academy. She initially followed Sunni Islam as this is what is usually presented and taught as the mainstream or normative approach. In June 2017 after reading about early Islamic history and considering 'both sides of the story' she decided to follow the path of the Ahlul Bayt (as) otherwise known as Shia Islam.

Oh brother!

Sumayyah was born and raised in Arizona--a mostly hot and dry southwestern US state. She loves the outdoors but is not so fond of the hot summer months. Her daily routine is not complete without at least one large iced espresso drink with whipped cream on top.

Final Reflection

I kid you not, this person exists and got in our faces at the Patriot Movement Arizona rally on March 10, 2018.

He showed up to cause trouble, and to harass and intimidate us:

Check out the video below:


He is a real nutcase.

Not only that, but he filed a lawsuit against a local mosque because they would not allow him to mingle with the other women, who are always separated in the Friday services.

The local CAIR affiliate was going to file a lawsuit on his behalf, then found out that this "she" was a he. They refused to file.

Even radical Muslims have a limit.

I just wanted to post this to show all of you that indeed this kind of left-wing lunacy has tried to mainstream itself, and in Arizona of all places.

Crazy! AZ for Trump Takes Down Antifa at Arizona State University

Saturday Afternoon, March 10, 2018, I spoke at the Patriot Movement Arizona rally.

I enjoyed meeting with like-minded patriots who love Trump and care about this country. They are all alive and well fighting to ensure that we make America Great Again.

We also want to keep Arizona red and Make Phoenix Great Again, too.

After the frustrating yet very lively protest at the Orpheum Theater against Weekend at Bernie Sanders and his two socialist puppets Ruben Gallego and Raul Grijalva, we went to Arizona State University to post flyers commemorating Americans killed by illegal aliens.

Our Arizona for Trump team came onto campus, a public location since it's financed by taxpayer dollars. We had our bullhorns blaring.

Lesa talking to another student at ASU

One woman on the campus called the police, claiming that we needed a permit in order to use our bullhorns and shout support for President Trump.

Yes, my life matters! Yes indeed!
Most of the students looked at us kind of funny. Some students showed their support for us. We have one of the College Republicans United join us and walk around with us.

We met a number of students who support President Trump and who want an end to illegal immigration, too.

When we set up the posters on the public posting areas, we noticed at one point that Antifa showed up.

A group of six miscreants arrived to pull down the posters. They were looking for trouble.

Our team stood our ground to protect the posters and to prevent them from vandalizing the posters.

They then started pushing members of our team around, specifically Ben Bergquam and William Johnson.

Johnson had to pull one of them away so that he would stop assaulting and battering us. One of the ladies in the group told us that we were racists, and that our posts were nothing but "f---king BS". Why is it racist for us to recognize lives murdered by illegal aliens?

Within seconds, Arizona State University PD rode up and detained the Antifa thugs.

The large one, whom I called "Tubby" throughout the exchange, tried to escape with blonde Antifa, but we trained our cameras on them and made sure to signal to everyone that they could not get away with anything.

Another police officer arrived on scene and then two ASU police officers tackled Tubby Antifa to the ground.

This was glorious.

But it was also pretty scary. One of the creepy Antifa girls attacked me and tried to grab my camera. Police pulled her away to keep me safe.

Here's all the information on this case:

I contacted the ASU Police twice, and I have today filed a police report public records request.

More information will be coming in soon.

Young Trump supporter--of Mexican descent.
His parents immigrated LEGALLY!

For now, I want everyone to know that Arizona for Trump really rocked it.

We met with lots of willing, interested students. Other members of our team talked to students who were willing to listen, even if they didn't agree with us on anything.


After the ASU Antifa group dispersed, they came back later that night to take down all the Kate Steinle and Brandon Mendoza flyers.

Guess what? College Republicans United took the lead early the next morning and replaced all the flyers. That was a huge victory for Arizona for Trump!

Here are two of the leaders from ASU College Republicans United:

More information will follow once I have obtained the arrest and police report records on Tubby Antifa and company.
