Brnovich is Running for the U.S. Senate and the Left is Terrified

Published

on

There are generally three types of politicians. The first is the AOC type, always saying outrageous things that generate attention by riling up the base, but they never get much accomplished other than raising money for themselves. The second consists of those who get into office and then proceed to compromise with the other side, the John Kasich types. The third group is those who actually get a lot done in line with their principles, usually quietly so they can get more done without being noticed. Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is the third type

 

For the first six years he served in that office, he quietly plodded away, forging victories for freedom, the Constitution and conservative principles. But within the past year, the left finally took notice, and now that he is running for U.S. Senate, they have made him a target. The Arizona Republic runs nearly daily attacks on him. It’s become a joke that the editors and reporters there sit around every morning discussing who is going to write the latest hit piece on him and what it will cover.

He’s been endorsed by Mark Levin, who told him “You’ve got guts.” Sean Hannity has all but endorsed him, frequently inviting him on his show now that the left has put a target on his back. He has enough name recognition that he can beat Democratic incumbent Sen. Mark Kelly, who the MSM has labeled one of the five most vulnerable Democratic senators in Congress.

 

The level of principled work Brnovich has done while in office is staggering. He has four lawsuits already  — yes four, and he’s leading on them —  against the Biden administration over illegal immigration. He defended two of Arizona’s election integrity laws all the way to the Supreme Court and won earlier this year, in Brnovich v. DNC. He took on the Maricopa County Supervisors multiple times in their efforts to thwart a ballot audit of the 2020 election, standing firm behind the Senate Republicans. 

 

He was the first person in the country to sue Biden over his vaccine mandate for businesses of 100 employees or more, and followed up with a letter he wrote with other attorneys general. He and several other attorneys general sued Biden over an executive order regarding the “social cost of carbon,” which essentially sneaks in the Green New Deal without going through Congress. 

 

He’s sued big tech, filed a brief in a lawsuit against Gov. Doug Ducey’s COVID-19 restrictions and issued an opinion stating that churches have the right to remain open during COVID-19. He testified at an IRS hearing in support of a rule that Trump eventually adopted, prohibiting the IRS from possessing nonprofit donor information. 

 

He filed an amicus curiae brief with the Supreme Court supporting David Daleiden, who is being wrongfully prosecuted for exposing Planned Parenthood. He filed another one with the Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, defending Mississippi’s 15-week ban on abortion, going further than many did, calling to overturn Roe v. Wade

 

He led an amicus curiae brief with other attorneys general at the Supreme Court in the case New York Rifle and Pistol v. Corlette, which challenges New York’s law that only allows gun ownership for good cause. Gun experts say this case could be bigger than District of Columbia v. Heller.  He led a successful amicus curiae brief at the Ninth Circuit opposing California’s ban on high-capacity magazines. He submitted two comments opposing Biden’s ATF rules that go after ghost guns and make it more difficult for the handicapped to obtain braces to use with guns. 

 

He sued the Biden administration over a requirement in The American Rescue Plan Act which prohibits states from lowering taxes for four years. He led an amicus curiae brief at the Supreme Court supporting Americans for Prosperity, which successfully got a California statute requiring disclosure of the identities of donors who give more than $5,000 to a charity struck down. 

Along with other attorneys general, he sued Biden over a move to extend federal antidiscrimination laws to transgenders, which affects which bathrooms they use and sports they participate in.

 

Locally, he threatened to sue the City of Tucson over its vaccine mandate and so they dropped it. He sued ASU over giving a sweetheart deal to a hotel so it could avoid paying property taxes. He filed an amicus curiae brief in a successful lawsuit filed by The Goldwater Institute against the city of Peoria over violating the Arizona Constitution’s gift clause by giving handouts to a private university.

 

There is a long list of items he is defending, such as Arizona’s new law banning aborting babies solely because they have disabilities. He’s defended in court Arizona’s ban on critical race theory and mandatory masks in schools, He defended Arizona’s law banning the investment of taxpayer dollars in companies that boycott Israel, and filed an amicus curiae brief in support of Arkansas’s similar law. 

 

Brnovich is up against two billionaires trying to buy the election in the primary. One is Fortune 500 CEO Jim Lamon, who has no record to speak of. He’s come under criticism for accepting COVID-19 relief funds, although after being publicly outed he returned them. 

 

Out-of-state Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel is funding one of his employees, Blake Masters, $10 million to run. Masters, who also has no record in politics, has attempted to depict Brnovich with the unfounded claim of not being aligned with Trump enough, but Thiel is also funding never Trumper (until he started running) J.D. Vance for Senate in Ohio with $10 million. $10 million is the most money ever contributed by someone to a Senate race. 

 

Brnovich isn’t getting endorsements from police and firefighter unions because he used to head up the Goldwater Institute’s Center for Constitutional Governance, which frequently sued unions. But Republicans know his record, and a recent poll showed him double digits ahead of his opponents. Democrats are terrified, because this is an actual conservative with a record, not just RINO talk.

Interview with My Son Hunter Producer Phelim McAleer

Published

on

My Son Hunter

Phelim McAleer is one of the most courageous men alive today. He has produced many movies that depict true stories that the mainstream media tries to cover up, like Gosnell, the story of America’s most prolific serial killer, Abortionist Kermit Gosnell. His latest movie, My Son Hunter, is a viral sensation that tells the story of Hunter Biden’s laptop and the corruption of him leveraging his father’s office to do big deals with Ukrainian and Chinese oligarchs.  This is a powerful interview with a brave men, telling a story ripped from the conservative media headlines and bringing it to a man audience.

The late Andrew Breitbart said that politics is downstream from culture, and he was right. This movie is part of the Right’s effort to recapture the culture from the Left.

From Our Founding to Biden, Misinformation Contorts Society

Even when truth is exposed, great masses of people never seem to find out

Published

on

The Biden Administration, aided and abetted by serial-lying senators and congressional representatives, a warp-minded press secretary, the Internet’s big tech, NPR, The Washington Post and The New York Times, and the FBI, DOJ, NSA, CIA, IRS and a variety of other federal agencies which have been weaponized against the right, often by Barack Obama, clearly are major conveyors of misinformation. Nevertheless, misinformation has long been with us.

In his book, The Dictionary of Misinformation, published 47 years ago, author Tom Burnham gives us a wide angle view of just how contorted historical ‘facts’ can be. Perhaps more alarming is that even when the truth is exposed, great masses of people never seem to find out and live their entire lives believing something else. Consider the following.

For the People, by the People

There is no provision in the United States Constitution for a cabinet; it has developed over the years as an unwritten adjunct to our system of government. Nothing in the Constitution either forbids, or specifically sanctions, the giving of advice to the president either publicly or privately, by individuals or groups. Today, the cabinet is accepted as an integral part of the American system of government.

Nothing in the Bill of Rights or the U.S. Constitution requires a verdict to be unanimous in capital, or any other cases. Nor does a jury have to be made up of 12 people, as is commonly believed. Witnesses in a court of law are not required to answer yes or no to a question that an examiner or cross-examiner poses. Obviously, via the 5th amendment, a witness has the right not to incriminate himself or herself.

Inventors or Something Else?

Abner Doubleday is considered the inventor of baseball in 1839. However, there were references to baseball in a novel published in America in 1798, and again in an 1820 novel published in London which explains the game at length as it is known today. By the way, the guillotine is not French, nor is it named for its inventor.

James Watt did not invent the steam engine and never claimed to have. His improvements of an existing steam engine were notable, such that people believed he was the inventor. Robert Fulton did not invent the steam boat, nor does he deserve the credit. His steam boat was developed 20 years after James Rumsey and John Fitch had each run steam boats successfully in America and abroad. Indeed, Fitch had long gained exclusive rights from several states for boats propelled by steam.

Fifteen years before Alexander Graham Bell’s construction of a usable telephone, Phillip Reis had invented a crude telephone in Germany. Moreover in 2002, the U.S. Congress recognized an impoverished Florentine immigrant, Antonio Meucci, as the inventor of the telephone, rather than Alexander Graham Bell who had gained vast fame and fortune by stealing another man’s lifelong work.

Thomas Edison was not the original inventor of the light bulb. He improved upon the principle others had discovered. In 1802, Sir Humphrey Davy produced an arch light. In 1844, Jean Foucault made an arch light strong enough to illuminate the Place de la Concorde in Paris. In 1860, Sir Joseph William Swan devised a crude light bulb, and in 1878, he demonstrated a successful carbon filament lamp at Newcastle, England, 10 months before Edison “invented” the light bulb.

History not in the Making

The battle of Bunker Hill was not fought at Bunker Hill. Paul Revere didn’t reach Concord on his midnight ride. What most people know of him and his ride comes from Longfellow’s poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride.” This poem begins with the famous line, “Listen, my children and you shall hear…”

Many people believe that after the crash of 1929, financiers jumped out of windows at record rates. Actually, the suicide rate was the same as in other years.

The damage reaped upon the U.S. forces in Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941 would have been greater if the U.S. Pacific Fleet had been at sea. Americans would have had little, if any cover, and instead of ships being lost in shallow water, which were raised and repaired, all losses would have been irrevocable. Author Leo Rosten noted that far fewer men were lost precisely because “they were in the harbor.”

So… the question arises, will the vast majority of Americans ever be able to cast off the shackles of the misinformation currently slung about in buckets, daily, by the self-appointed “American security state?” Unfortunately, the short answer is “doubtful.”
