AZ Illegal Safe House

This is a few blocks away from where I live in Arizona. I got the memo by email, same as you get these sorts of thing all the time.
It seemed impossible, so I did what any reasonable person would do. I drove over to see if it's true. It's true.

Here is the memo exactly as I received it.

Subject: Fw: ILLEGAL SAFE HOUSE

On Monday night, The Gateway Pundit’s Jordan Conradson investigated the Homewood Suites in Scottsdale, Arizona after receiving a tip that it was an illegal immigrant safe house. The hotel is located at 9880 N Scottsdale Rd.


When Conradson arrived at the hotel, every entrance was barricaded, and he had to park down the street. He walked up to the hotel and greeted some officers.

This is incredible.
There’s a safe house for illegal immigrants being secretly maintained without our knowledge – until now. Conradson did some digging.


Conradson: what’s going on here?
LES Officer: You actually need to leave the property it’s actually a closed hotel.
Conradson: Oh, so what’s going on?
LES Officer: This is a private property man.
Conradson: But what’s going on?
LES Officer: If you want to get information for that you need to go to endeavors.org.
Conradson: I heard that they were harboring illegal immigrants here. Is that true?
LES Officer: You can go to the endeavors.org website and they’ll give you as much information as they can.
Conradson: Who do you work for?
LES Officer: I’m contracted with LES, it’s a law enforcement contract service company.
Conradson: Why aren’t people allowed on the premises?
LES Officer: You can go to endeavors.org to get information for that other than that this is closed this is private property from the company that’s here.
The Gateway Pundit

Guess what the story behind Endeavors is…
ENDEAVORS.ORG is the website for Family Endeavors, a San Antonio nonprofit tied to the Biden administration. They received an $87 million no-bid contract in March to clothe and shelter illegal immigrants. They then received ANOTHER contract for $530 MILLION shortly after.

It’s all been masterminded by the Biden Administration right under the noses of Americans living in Scottsdale.

But there’s more. A Selrico Services food van pulled out of the parking lot. Selrico is a food service company that is also based in San Antonio. They must be contracted to provide food for those in this country illegally.

So not only are these illegal aliens being housed at taxpayer expense, they’re being fed at our expense too! They get all this free and then we’re sent the bill through taxation. Conradson wanted to find out who specifically was organising all this.


Conradson called the local police station since he could not get any answers from the representatives at the hotel.


Conradson: I would like to know what is going on at the Homewood Suites on Scottsdale Rd. and Mountainview. Do you have any information about what’s going on there?
Dispatcher: Nothing outside of the fact that it’s being monitored by ICE and that we have police presence there from other agencies 24/7.
Conradson: Who is managing the hotel?
Dispatcher: I don’t have that information exactly
Conradson: But ICE is in there 24/7?
Dispatcher: Yeah, it’s being monitored by them and outside agencies.
Conradson: Do you know what the outside agencies are?
Dispatcher: I think it’s just a mix of all Arizona state agencies.
Conradson: Are they communicating with you on how many people they’re bringing into Scottsdale, into the hotel?
Dispatcher: I don’t have any specifics on it
Conradson: Where do I find more information?
Dispatcher: You could try to look up any of the ICE numbers online and see if they give any further.
Conradson: Do you have any information on exactly what’s going on? I mean obviously, they’re harboring illegal immigrants, but do you know anything else?
Dispatcher: No we don’t have any further.

The Deep State inside Arizona is a part of this, and so is ICE and the police. It’s all one unified effort to keep this a secret from the American people.

Here’s exactly what is at stake.

This is atrocious. Over 600 MILLION DOLLARS are funding this operation to flood red counties with illegal residents and brand new Democrat voters, and it’s costing the taxpayers money and it’s putting the American people in DANGER.

Instead of protecting American citizens, officers are being paid by our tax dollars to protect non-citizens who are invading our communities.

The globalist elites who govern this country are attempting to change the population so that it votes in the way that they prefer.

They don’t care about any of the Americans currently living here, they just want to replace them with people from other countries.

And they’re doing their best to keep it under wraps.
So share this article far and wide to raise awareness about what they’re doing, and let’s hope we can put a stop to this!

I hope you read this article completely. These are our tax dollars going to waste...so the Democrats can get more votes.

AZ Ballot election audit

Although complete results of the AZ Ballot election audit have not been released yet, state Senate testimony did reveal several interesting facts on 7/15/21, televised -- some number of apparently counterfeit ballots were received (wrong paper, samples shown). And 74,000 more absentee ballots were received than were sent out to voters by the Secretary of State's office, which keeps detailed counts. Hmmm. I blew a gasket when I heard that! Smoking gun, OMG. Sen. president Karen Fann, conducting the hearing in a very very matter-of-factly way asked how they could account for that apparently startling item and the respondents (former Secy of State and highly regarded Ken Bennett and one other) said they could not, no plausible explanation seems to exist, they are looking further but it doesn't look good. It was all calm and collected, very businesslike. The auditor's standard of "beyond reproach" was operating, even if their name is non-plussed from a PR standpoint (Cyber Ninjas). Everything they did is on video multiple times. Recall CNN's mantra, "there is no fraud, big lie, total waste of time and taxpayer money, these are not the droids you're looking for," before any results were known. Double Hmmm. The hearing moved on to the next unusual result. There were many. The AZ Senate hearings are all recorded and available for public viewing online.

Mass Media missed this story for reasons that were unclear at press time.

The "Other" John McCain

More scandals and controversy than I can fit here

His own party censured him, remember?
Can you say, "Lincoln Savings and Loan"?

The lamestream media told you:

John S. McCain, the proud naval aviator who climbed from depths of despair as a prisoner of war in Vietnam to pinnacles of power as a Republican congressman and senator from Arizona and a two-time contender for the presidency, died on Saturday at his home in Arizona. He was 81. ... A son and grandson of four-star admirals who were his larger-than-life heroes, Mr. McCain carried his renowned name into battle and into political fights for more than a half-century... (NY Times)

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Though the adulation poured on John McCain post mortem is indeed impressive, it overlooks a few salient items, from the proud naval aviator who graduated 894th in his class of 899:

It seems to me the fact that he was censured by the main county of his own party in his own state is worthy of mention, and wasn't; the Senator faced a recall effort with all the earmarks of success right up until he was saved by the 9-11 attacks that froze out all activity of that sort:

Unnamed

McCain narrowly skated from criminal responsibility in the Lincoln Savings and Loan Scandal that cost 23,000 people their life savings, with a total cost to taxpayers in the billions:

Unnamed


His involvement in the deaths in the USS Forrestal fire remain satisfactorily explained for Snopes and military brass, but leave a dark cloud over the man that some comrades-in-arms speak of in hushed whispers; his votes "across the aisle" on Obamacare, election reform and more made him a "maverick" hero to democrats but not to his republican constituency in his home state; his vaunted "gun-show loophole bill" SB890 was carefully written to completely end gun shows altogether -- a point that went unreported -- but the bill was lamented by mass media when it was defeated https://www.gunlaws.com/GunShows/index.htm; and of course the question has been repeatedly asked but cannot be answered in a politically correct way -- why aren't all other prisoners who made it out alive heroes too?

For eight months our state was without a Senator and a vote, that's really serious -- no representation -- and no reporters seemed to care the entire time. In its place, anonymous reports and releases in his photoless name from the back hills written in a way that can't be verified, right up to his demise -- along with news reports that mainly said he's fighting valiantly and misleadingly giving hope of recovery, unverified, by relatives, surely emblematic of handout journalism.

Perish this thought, and Mr. Trump may not have phrased it for sensitive ears, but the president's instincts were impeccable: Heroes do something outstanding and live to tell about it -- or not. Prisoners of war are a separate distinguishable class of people. Both earn gratitude we can never repay, endured a life we can never comprehend, and both deserve our admiration, respect and honor. They are not the same thing. And that does matter.

Unnamed-1


FROM THE GANG OF EIGHT. SINCE WHEN DOES CONGRESS NEED GANGS?

Trump is imprecise -- it's not fake news, it's phony news.
(Fake = a lie. Phony = deceptive.)

RAINBOW CROSSWALKS INSULT EVERYONE

Gay Community Thinks Crosswalks Are Political Billboards

What color should Black Lives Matter get?

Dancing in the streets about to become a real safety hazard

The lamestream media told you:

"Phoenix values and embraces its LGBTQ brothers and sisters," mayor Stanton said in a news release. "Phoenix is committed to ensuring equal treatment and rights for everyone and showing our support because we know diversity makes us stronger."

The installation of the rainbow crosswalks in Phoenix were requested by the Phoenix Pride Community Foundation, one-n-ten, and Aunt Rita's Foundation after contacting the mayor's office. These groups have offered to cover the costs of materials, installation and ongoing maintenance for the rainbow-painted portions of the crosswalks that are not already maintained by the city, according to the news release.

http://www.azfamily.com/story/38036112/two-rainbow-crosswalks-approved-in-phoenix-by-mayor-stanton-city-council

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Painting crosswalks into rainbow colors for sexual politics crosses a bright red line. The gay community must not manipulate (in this case) the Phoenix City Council politicians under the dubious rubrics of "inclusion and diversity." Google informs us this now includes lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders, questioners, transsexuals, asexuals, reassigns, multi-genders, agenders, non-genders, genderqueers, genderfluids, and other recently identified sexually diverse people.

Changing something as basic as safety crosswalks for their personal political ambitions -- especially ones that arouse deep gut feelings, animosity and political discord in the community -- dishonors any respect for older fundamental rights. How many crosswalks will we have to repaint, in what colors, to represent Black Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter, or even the Right to Free Speech -- which you can actually find in the Constitution? How long will this list become? Do we really want gun-rights advocates to get their shot at a crosswalk?

Rainbows make equal crosswalks unequal. Rainbows are magnificent acts of nature. Misappropriating them for political advantage on public roads are Intolerable Acts. It doesn’t matter who pays or how much pride a group has in its adopted color guard. Everyone pays when politicians allow such discrimination against everyone else. It is intolerant and non-inclusive.

The entire gender-confusion bollix is an artifice of the “left” -- a euphemism for socialism, which long ago determined destruction of the family unit was a superb solution for dissolving The American Way. The gay community has every right to live their lives in peace and harmony. This isn’t that. This is an aggressive assault. Brutal communist dictator Nikita Khrushchev said, “We will bury you.” He didn’t say how long it would take, or how they would accomplish the task.

The Federal Register in 1963 recorded 45 stated goals of communism that included a terrifying list of values such as:

discrediting the family as an institution, promoting promiscuity, pornography, obscenity, degeneracy, easy divorce, the negative influence of parents, promoting ugliness, meaningless forms as art, and the idea that such things are normal, natural and healthy.

You can decide for yourself whether any of that is valid, I’m not judging so don’t shoot this messenger. I’m just noticing we’ve arrived.

Khrushchev’s late advocate Saul Alinsky, a widely recognized guiding light for leading leftists Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, is now influencing socialists in America with projects like taking over crosswalks. They must be stopped before they nail the coffin shut on The American Way. It’s not about the rainbows, intolerance and phony inclusion they pitch. It’s about God, family and pure American values first, which they denigrate.

When the term “family values” first hit the scene writ large around 1990, mass-media geniuses screamed “What is that,” as if they didn’t know. Maybe they didn’t, which would be terrifying -- bad enough to revoke their licenses -- except they’re unlicensed operators.

Americans know implicitly what family values are. They are what made this nation the shining beacon of freedom that attracts people to our land. Those values must be protected against the vicious assaults we’re experiencing now at every black-and-white line in the road.

The state newspaper, which promoted the one-sided rainbow program widely, refused to publish this article.

Spotlighting Serial Killers

Media continues promoting copycats

In a rare break with its constant promoting of serial killers, The Arizona Republic ran a reader's letter in tune with the JPFO "Don't Inspire Evil" campaign, which calls for a new journalism ethics guideline:

"Refrain from gratuitous or repetitive use of spree killer or jihadi names and images."

The media has refused to even consider the guideline. The letter writer goes further:

"Phoenix serial killers do not deserve news coverage! Criminologists have confirmed that publicity motivates serial killers. Ten years ago horrible crimes happened to random victims who could have been you or me, or much worse, our daughter or son. I was heartbroken to see The Republic give to the killers exactly what they want: five days of attention.

"As a city and a nation, how an we stop the creation of serial killers until we stop making stars of the criminals who take innocent lives? The media understand society's fascination with violence and murder. They exploit this obsession through excessive coverage.

"Next time, prior to succumbing to sensationalism, please use some restraint and consider the impact upon victims, both past and future." -Anne V.

Violence! But There Is None.

Even the Headline Lies

(Arizonans may have seen this item)

The lamestream media told you:


The gathering in Phoenix was peaceful until the end when rioting broke out and there was widespread violence. Police had to use tear gas, pepper spray, pepper balls and rubber bullets to disburse the mob.

 
 
 
 

WHAT VIOLENCE?

Winner: The End of Credibility Award.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

In the most flagrant display of bizarre propaganda in recent memory, a front page mainstream newspaper proclaims violence, but shows a totally peaceful scene with one demonstrator. Because there was little else.

A line of battle ready shock troops, identities hidden, aligned in combat formation stand guard, as absolutely nothing is happening. The disjoint between headline and image must have appealed to someone up there in those isolated halls.

The Uninvited Ombudsman carefully screened footage from every major “news” outlet, and despite vigorous editing and artful presentation, the only thing remotely resembling violence was police action against the assembled public.
 
Kicking a single canister of riot gas back at its source is not deemed violence for the purpose of this report. That scene, repeated on screens ad nauseum, including the guy folding from a rubber-bullet shot to the groin, is not proof of violence or justification for any of the phony reports that followed.

Friends who were there reported an unruly angry, antagonistic mob of anti-Trumpers when they exited the rally. Police did the right thing, keeping the sides separated, across the streets, with barricades. That's what police in other cities are supposed to do, but frequently do not, yet they retain their jobs for reasons that were unclear at press time.

Although claims of tossed empty water bottles were received during the 108-degree day, police action was unquestionably violent, and demonstrators and participants from many sides had no choice but to disburse. Anti-Trump protesters did create a ruckus at one point. These people and the belligerent crowd associated with them were deemed “peace activists” by Reuters, who withdrew the false characterization after a withering storm of rebuke. According to leading experts, such misleading references are institutional.

A picture speaks 1,000 words. Although MSNBC at one point referred in passing to "tens of thousands" of demonstrators, there were hundreds, which grew eventually to perhaps just more than that. This was the thickest crowd shot I could capture:
 

The full-size image allows head counts, pretty close. It's in the hundreds. This
image from TV during daylight, mid event. Night crowds were hard to gauge.
This was the main gathering spot, near the entrance, people flowed to here.

New Arizona and Texas Gun Laws in Place

Mostly good but as always a mixed bag

The 2017 Update for The Arizona Gun Owner's Guide will be posted in downloadable form here.

The four main new gun laws may not affect gun owners immediately, but protections are now in place against expected attempts at future infringements. All 50 states should have similar protection in place. The Arizona versions can serve as a model.

1. Firearm Tracking Ban -- It's now a class 6 felony to require a person to use any sort of electronic firearm tracking system. That includes devices on the firearm and centralized or decentralized databases. Includes electronic systems "used to locate or control the use of a firearm," which could include so-called personalized guns (sometimes erroneously called smart guns). People could opt in if they want (they did with LoJack), and there are exceptions for authorities. A not perfect but really good plan. Read more.

2. Police Protection -- Cops now get special treatment whether on duty or off. Many protections only applied in the performance of official duty, that's been removed. An assault on an officer, on or off duty, if done with "malice" is aggravated assault. A direct result of the orchestrated Fergusson, Mo. black riots. Includes a gun snatch from an officer, what Michael Brown was doing when shot (misreported to this day by most "news" outlets. USA Today recently said shot "during a scuffle."). Read more.

3. State Preemption -- Continuous struggle to keep local fiefdoms from finding creative new infringements. This amendment basically stops them from banning their employees and contractors from having firearms in their vehicles, or on their real property (homes). Read more.

4. Private Property Transfers -- Beautifully written roadblock to prevent tyrannical actors who are seeking to force gun transfers to fall under federal control or registry. Elegant -- it doesn't mention firearm in any way -- a person cannot be required to check a database before the private sale, gift, donation, or any other transfer of any personal property, and no third party can be required to be involved in such transfers. Introduce this in your state. Read more.

America's Toughest Sheriff Rides Off

The lamestream media told you:

Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, who calls himself "America's Toughest Sheriff" is a corrupt bully hated by nearly everyone. His prejudice and bigotry knows no bounds and if it wasn't for the power he wields and the people he controls he would have been in prison long ago. He has terrorized migrants for too long and we're glad to see him go.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that: If Sheriff Joe, as everyone in Arizona affectionately knows him, wasn't so well liked, he would not have won six consecutive terms for 24 years by usually huge margins against everything the left-wing democrats could throw against him. His fan base nationwide, well, he wouldn't have one, but he has been called on repeatedly for newscasts, public appearances, and his net positive effect on the state and national scene has been tremendously positive. He brought the illegal immigrant invasion (now called "guests" by progressives) to national prominence.

-- He limited jail TV to the weather channel and an education channel -- taxpayers shouldn't pay for cable and prisoners don't earn HBO for committing crimes.

-- Tent City housed low-risk prisoners cheap when jail space ran out, instead of releasing them like elsewhere. When bleeding hearts complained that desert heat was inhumane, he told them if it's good enough for our soldiers, it's good enough for prisoners. He hung a "Vacancy" sign.

-- Tent City housed low-risk prisoners cheap when jail space ran out, instead of releasing them like elsewhere. When bleeding hearts complained that desert heat was inhumane, he told them if it's good enough for our soldiers, it's good enough for prisoners. He hung a "Vacancy" sign.



-- Joe's get tough stand on people sneaking into our country without permission continues to be a national focal point. He single-handedly raised awareness about its effects.

-- His volunteer citizen posse has saved a fortune, instilled pride in the community, keeps malls safe at Christmas time, is its own Peace Corps in our county.

-- Animal abuse got the attention it deserves, inmates got therapeutic interactions in the kill-free shelter the Sheriff's office ran and animal crimes were back on the radar.

-- Inmates don't need coffee, that ended, and a vegetarian diet eventually saved money, eliminating the famous green baloney sandwiches that were their own cost-saving headline.

-- We get a thrill when we see Joe's chain gang working in our neighborhoods, keeping them nice. This one was right down the street from me, so I paused to snap an image. The prisoners love the fresh air and exercise, compete for good behavior to get the assignment. It's called "rehabilitation." Passersby wave and honk in appreciation. Positive feedback.



In the interests of full disclosure, Joe endorsed my book, Gun Laws of America, Every Federal Gun Law on the Books, with Plain English Summaries, http://www.gunlaws.com/gloa.htm when it was released, because he recognized a good thing when he saw it. You can too, only $19.95.

-- Instituting county-wide sex offender notifications was a double-edged sword, because neighborhoods now became aware when these predators moved in, but it also made it hard for them to settle. Tough problem.

I'll stop here, and while he did attract a lot of lawsuits, and that cost the county a good chunk of change, he brought his department consistently in under budget. He had enough hot button issues from Paris Hilton in his jail to, oh, catch my political-parody band sometime, The Cartridge Family, http://www.gunlaws.com/CFB-BandInfo.htm, we played his roast.

For Arizona Voters

The lamestream media told you:

Nothing reliable.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:


Korwin's Analysis:

2016 Arizona Ballot Propositions

 

...and VOTING EARLY -- BAD BAD BAD.

 

Most folks know by now I don't endorse or oppose candidates -- no way to predict their behavior once elected, experience shows their promises are empty, unenforceable, virtually worthless. You decide who gets your vote.

Ballot props on the other hand can be evaluated, and since I vote, I can share results of my own evaluations. Arizona has two this year. First: Do NOT vote early, so your vote absolutely counts, as planned.

You should rise up as a nation as one, on one day, and choose our next elected leaders. It makes us a political unit, cohesive -- from many, one: E pluribus unum. This is important, it's the plan, it's a good plan.

Dissolving the election out over a month or more is practically a plot, wiping out the original inspired plan. Between the BOGUS EARLY DATE and the REAL CONSTITUTIONAL ELECTION DATE:

candidates die

or worse,

they are arrested,

they withdraw,

you learn they are lowdown bottom feeding maggots,

worse than you dreamed,

Wikileaks spills dirt,

the media spins,

phony "polls" mislead,

advertising lies,

money promotes,

and worse.

Your vote gets wasted

bent, misled, and worst:

cast at the wrong time.

Recently hundreds of thousands of people early voted for Canadian-Cuban-American Ted Cruz who was on ballots but no longer running. Wasted votes. Cuban-American Marco Rubio too. They wasted their votes. You know who you are. But it gets worse.

The frenzied breathless live tallies election night only count real votes. Early votes -- huh, maybe sometimes somewhere, it was unclear at press time -- sit in envelope boxes to get opened and counted later -- only if the election is close enough statistically to matter. Is that what you want? What's election day for?

Yeah, I know the arguments. Early voting is so convenient! Voting is not about convenience, it's about running America.

I don't want to miss voting! You don't miss an airplane, don't miss the vote. I have to tell you this?

I may be out of town and need an absentee ballot! Did I say anything about legit absentees? Sheesh.

But again, the main thing is the spirit of the thing. Rise up with your neighbors and select your leaders on the same day. Don't spread it out over an arduous month so the election is an afterthought ("47% have voted already in Floridistan! It's over with only two weeks to go... said the announcer for Rock 99 FM"). I heard CNN say practically that. If the choice is made before election day -- that virtually is a plot. I thought the commies were dead. (Hint: they are very much alive and active.) Sure, I wish we had better choices than we do. I always do. And I admit to having no solution to that conundrum.
