In Wednesday’s post, “AZ Republic endorsements: “Close calls” favor known leftists,” exposing the fakery of the newspaper’s endorsements, we predicted the liberals on the editorial board would favor far left lobbyist Fred DuVal in the governor’s race.
Today, what’s left of the deteriorating newspaper, provides unequivocal evidence of what’s to come.
Given the political chicanery engaged in by the few adults still employed at the ailing newspaper, it was not much of a surprise to see today’s Page One, above-of-the fold headline written by a duo of hatchet women, Yvonne Wingett Sanchez and Mary Jo Pitzl, who view every issue through deep blue lenses.
Their pathetic effort, filled with enough suspenseful adjectives to qualify it for a mystery thriller, aims to expose Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey’s ties to the Koch brothers. The wealthy conservatives businessmen have reached public enemy status with liberals since they legally donate to Republican candidates.
Hold onto your hats! Take a seat.
The headline blasts, “Ducey’s ties to Koch brothers becomes issue in governor race.” To substantiate the shock of this “issue,” the article quotes the far left weekly news magazine The Nation, which has lost money in all but three or four years in over a century of operation, sustained by a large group of devoted leftist donors called ‘Nation Associates.’
As expected, there is silence from the daily on Democrat recipients of the big bucks doled out by billionaires such as Second Amendment hating Michael Bloomberg, Marxist George Soros and Climate Change fanatic Tom Steyer.
OpenSecrets.org, the nonpartisan and verifiable archive of political contributions fills in the gaps you‘ll never find in the liberal news. Here is the 2014 overview of the top organizational contributors, with a color guide along the left side indicating a range of liberal to conservative. Koch Industries is in 34th place, on a list rife with unions and numerous other radically liberalgroups. Only six are listed as Solidly Republican/Conservative
On MSNBC, hardly a conservative network, Joe Scarborough, in a must watch video segment exposes Big money this year starts with Harry Reid. He ponders why Harry Reid has spent so much time talking about the conservative Koch brothers when Democratic superPACs have outspent all others in 2014.
In fact, the Senate Majority PAC, run by allies of Harry Reid, is the superPAC that spent the most in 2014 — leading Scarborough to wonder aloud why Reid has spent so much time talking (notice the change of ties in the linked video) about the conservative Koch brothers.
We join his bewilderment, questioning why the Arizona Republic is focused on Ducey and the Koch‘s, rather than exposing the longtime ties of career political insider and D.C. ‘K Street’ lobbyist, Democrat contender Fred DuVal.
