New to Arizona and the politics of Arizona I have been working to chain information in order to get a picture of what is going on here. Apparently, it is far worse than I expected, anticipated, or even dreamed of for a western state.
Back in the late 1990’s I remember reading how the progressive left was making plans to move their people into communities to influence and turn communities away from conservative values towards socialism. The Progressives understood it would take time to make changes but someone, I have forgotten who, had the funds to physically begin moving progressive believers around the country to work for social change. That was their plan. Paid progressives, willing to do the bidding of a puppet master to physically move where needed to influence and flip cities and counties, and eventually take over a state. (Cultists anyone?)
Now add to that almost 20 years and here we are, gobsmacked with the Arizona Blues.
Mark Kelly, Astronaut and Millionare within 8 years time, really? How’d he get to be so wealthy?
Eight years later in 2019, Kelly had to file his first financial disclosures for his run against GOP Arizona Sen. Martha McSally. According to The Arizona Republic, his net worth was between $10 million and $27 million. (It’s now between $9 million and $27 million, the paper said, citing a financial disclosure report filed in August.)
This would, as The Republic reported, be “an amount that would make him among the wealthiest people in Congress at the time.”
Even at the low end, $9 million is more than quadruple what the couple was worth in 2011. And $27 million represents a nearly 13-fold increase from that $2.1 million figure.
World View, which received $22.1 million in investments from 2014 to 2016, did not disclose how much of that was from Tencent, whose CEO is listed as the wealthiest Chinese citizen.
When Pima County subsequently built a $15 million facility for World View, the firm’s leaders said they intended to transport tourists to the edge of space. However, no stratospheric tourists ever took those rides — although some individuals paid deposits on the $75,000 tickets.
Despite the failure of the company to produce the results it had promised, it has managed to maintain a positive relationship with county officials.
County officials signed a $2 million agreement in May with World View to produce surgical gowns “to aid in the protection during the pandemic outbreak of COVID-19.”
According to the “Master Agreement,” signed on May 8 by the county procurement officer, the unit price for each surgical gown to be made for the county is $3.25. The first year of the contract — which includes four more annual renewal options — is for $400,000.
A July 7 report by the Arizona Republic found that according to federal records, World View Enterprises took between $1 million and $2 million in PPP cash to preserve 38 jobs and return 17 employees from furlough. Arizona Democratic Senate candidate Mark Kelly, who cofounded the firm and remains an investor in it, previously criticized the program as being beholden to “big banks.”
Seriously, from balloon blow outs and non-existing stratospheric rides to surgical gowns and taxpayer bailouts. That’s what #DarkMoney and socialist voters are giving Arizona, America, and the Senate.

Soros has already effectively inserted himself into the criminal justice system by slowly transforming it—again through massive investment—via local district attorneys’ races. Since 2015, Soros has spent at least $17 million to swing district attorney races in states such as Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Arizona—key battlegrounds targeted by Democrats for takeover.
