Vindication for AZ Attorney General Tom Horne

April 15, 2014

Judge clears AG Horne in campaign finance case

After several days of trial and hearing evidence from both sides, administrative law judge Tammy Eigenheer has ruled that Yavapai County did not prove the case of illegal coordination with an independent expenditure committee during Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne’s 2010 campaign.

In her decision, Judge Eigenheer made note of the fact that the Yavapai County Attorney’s Office acknowledged it had no knowledge or evidence as to the content of phone conversations or the circumstances surrounding e-mails between Kathleen Winn, who headed the independent committee, ‘Business Leaders for Arizona,’ and Horne —- and instead drew inferences.

“It confirms what we’ve been saying all along. There never was any coordination,” Horne is quoted as saying. “Basically, I’m just going to continue doing what I’ve been doing — fighting for the people of Arizona, fighting to close our border, doing consumer protection — and fighting federal overreach.”

Monday’s legal decision by Judge Eigenheer is good news. Horne’s continued commitment to serve the citizens of the state of Arizona is what we have come to expect since he was first elected to the state legislature in 1997. He later served two terms as state Superintendent of Public Instruction before his election as Attorney General.

Attorney General Horne has personally and successfully argued cases before the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of Arizona.


AZ Republic: In-tandem, agendized news to distrust

April 13, 2014

It’s known as “The Repugnant” for a reason

Today we present this brief, but consummate example of the agendized newspaper’s relentless hounding.  This illustration involves what was previously known as a “Quick Hit,” until last week —- when the failing daily became an official charge of its Gannett parent, and transformed itself into an embarrassing wince inducer.  Previously the newspaper was principally known for liberal distortions, half truths, innuendo and the inability to impartially present the facts. Its main thrust is promoting same-sex issues and the open borders/amnesty agenda as policy. Opinion is never relegated to the editorial pages, but is scattered throughout its shrinking pages.

Quick Hit Number One: “Women are from Venus; men just can’t hear.” This inconsequential quip recounts a conversation between editorial writer Doug MacEachern and his wife and relates to his misunderstanding a word in her response.

MacEachern comes closest to resembling a Republican on the Republic’s staff.

Quick Hit Number Two: Flanking MacEachern is resident leftwing, amnesty-pushing shrew, Linda Valdez. Her three sentence effort “Legislators failing their legal duty toward schools,” concludes with the need to raise taxes in order to fulfill what she construes to be a Constitutional mandate to get more money in the public school system. Of course Valdez argues we need to raise taxes. What other conclusion could this liberal reach?

The following day the business section blasts an in-tandem headline: “Arizonans’ combined tax load is mild compared with most states.”  Obviously, we just don’t pay enough.

Get the idea? Now the Repugnant can substantiate its own perspective by quoting itself. And the most traditional voice on staff at the newspaper has been relegated to a Rodney Dangerfield styled,  self-deprecating jokester who writes his exasperated wife refers to him as a “dummy.”

Desperate USAToday/Republic hypes global warming

April 6, 2014

Vainly hoping threats of catastrophe will engage few remaining liberal readers

There’s a new newspaper in Arizona.  It’s an unreadable, error-filled, miserable mishmash of Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) leftwing spew stirred into the larger Gannett/USA Today cauldron of hyperbolic alarmism, innuendo and downright lies.  The honchos at the daily even acknowledge its glitch-filled, embarrassing week old configuration with, “The new Republic: You called, we’re listening,” where they promise new tweaks. But no alignments or tweaks will save the ailing newspaper now under the protective custody of its parent.

Days ago the contrivance, passing itself off as a news source, ran a story citing a United Nations report, “No hiding from climate change,” detailing that every corner of the globe is affected by climate change. In its previous incarnation climate change was known as global warming —- until global cooling hit.

The Telegraph’s Christopher Booker writes an exceptional exposé titled How did the IPCC’s* alarmism take everyone in for so long? Bookers reveals climate scaremongers are still twisting the evidence over global warming.

The fact that top scientists have discredited the report is of little consequence when there’s a shiny new agenda to drive. The left wingers remain stubbornly attached to their “unequivocal” global warming crisis in which humans and flatulent cows are the culprits

Climate Change Reconsidered demonstrates that its the evidence that the IPCC tries to marshal in favor of its catastrophic, human caused, global warming hypothesis that is false, falsifying the hypothesis.

As you might have guessed, this is political science, not actual science.

Fast food outlets flee military bases, blame wage hike

April 2, 2014

BHO’s minimum wage increase harms, not helps, workers

The Military Times reports on a damaging repercussion of the mandated increase in the minimum wage for companies with federal contracts.

When Obama signed the executive order unilaterally hiking the minimum wage, employees of such companies —- workers at traditionally entry level jobs —- were jubilant. But that cheer will be short-lived for those who find themselves unemployed. The hourly pay increase to $10.10 from $7.25, is causing many fast food concessions on military bases to request release from their contracts

The new rules must be part of any contract we negotiate,” said Kathleen Martin, a Navy Exchange Service Command (NESCOM) spokeswoman. Many vendor partners have verbally indicated hesitation  to accept contract changes reflecting the revised wage rules.

“At the end of the day, there will be fewer jobs,” said an industry source. “And for [the contractors] who stick it out, there will be higher costs and the customers will pay more.”

Labor Department rules issued last fall for fast food workers on federal contracts under the Service Contract Act require an increase in the minimum wage. The rules also require payment of new, additional “health and welfare” benefits at a rate of $3.81 per hour to those employees.

Four restaurants chains, including McDonald’s outlets, are slated for closure on Navy installations, according to NESCOM officials. Two other contractors —- a name-brand sandwich eatery and a name-brand pizza parlor —- have asked to be released from their Army and Air Force Exchange Service contracts to operate fast food restaurants at two other installations, according to AAFES

These closings “are the tip of the iceberg,” the source said. “I don’t think anybody has realized what the far-reaching effects of this will be.”

At the time of Obama’s signing of this executive order, critics of the mandate correctly charged that raising the minimum wage  would have an adverse effect, discouraging businesses from hiring more workers at a time when job growth is sorely needed. It would also negatively impact young workers who typically take these entry level jobs.

Just 54 percent of Americans ages 18 to 24 are currently employed, according to a Pew Research Center study.  That’s the lowest employment rate for this age group since the government began keeping track in 1948. One in four 18 to 34 year olds have moved back in with their parents after living on their own.

Yet in 2012, Obama irrationally carried the youth vote nationally by 60 percent. This liberal demographic clearly is not paying attention.

Bush family: Political dynasty ambitions resurge

March 30, 2014

Dynasties should remain relegated to Chinese historical studies 

When the leftist Washington Post writes that “influential Republicans” are promoting the draft candidacy of yet another Bush for president in 2016, that news should position conservative Republican’s antenna to high alert mode.

Papa — George Herbert Walker — Bush began the disappointing tradition as 41st president. He famously reneged on hisread my lips, no new taxespledge in a 1990 compromise with liberals that cost him a second term. Coming on the heels of two terms of Ronald Reagan, the actions of the former ambassador to China and the United Nations were viewed as a betrayal of Republican ideals.

Bush cut a deal with Democrats who promised —- but never delivered —- extensive budget cuts. The disastrous tax increase that followed led to increased spending, elevated taxes, and gave us the Clinton presidency, which further hiked both taxes and spending.

Then came his amnesty-promoting son, former Texas Governor George W. Bush. As president, “Dubya” rose to the occasion in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and implementing tax cuts, but was a mixed bag on other significant issues.

Former Florida Governor, John Ellis “Jeb,” is a Bush too far.  Strongly influenced by his Mexican-born and reared wife Columbia whose father was a “migrant worker,” his border positions raise even greater concern. Watch the two disturbing videos in this post, “Another Bush? Thanks, Jeb, but we’ve had enough,” for an idea of his stance. It’s not much of a surprise the liberal Washington Post is writing about him being “drafted” for a presidential run.

Waiting in the wings is Jeb’s 37-year-old lawyer son, George Prescott Bush (known as “P”). A lawyer married to a lawyer —- in the tradition of the Clinton’s and Obama’s —- “P” has already ignited his political career with his recent election as Commissioner of the Texas Land Office —-  and is a Bush even further.

The cry of “Uncle” has its roots in asking for deliverance or mercy, usually interpreted to mean “Enough!”

AZ Republic reinvented again: USA Today takes over

March 28, 2014

Most recent desperate survival attempt launches Sunday, March 30th

The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) is making promises, and are they ever doozies! The newspaper vows it will expand its coverage by “roughly 70” additional pages a week —- with feeds from USA Today, the stallion in the Gannett stable.

The Virginia-based newspaper’s circulation including freebies distributed by hotels nationwide is said to be the widest in the U.S. and points beyond. The hallmark of USA Today is that it is written at a fifth grade comprehension level, using bright colors, with heavy emphasis on trends, film reviews, celebrity coverage and travel, with a hard focus on sports.

USA Today isn’t for newshounds. Think of it as the People magazine of newspapers.

The Arizona República employs a novel approach in abandoning its news reporting duties by saying turning most of the work over to USA Today allows it to “focus it’s resources more fully on local content.” The front section will be merging compactly with the Valley section. But not to worry. The Republic is “adding pages on dining, weather, state history and moments that make us uniquely Arizona.” That should satisfy even the most demanding readers seeking information.

Though the daily already relies heavily on AP, Politico, and ASU journalism students, readers are told this is a reinvention of news in response to their requests, and this new format has generated positive feedback in other market launches where Gannett has initiated it.

So as the state’s newspaper of record opts for ever more fluff and less substance, expect it to use its fading energies to concentrate on hammering Republicans, with a specific emphasis on conservatives. After all, the 2014 election cycle is upon us.  It’s quite a downhill slide for a  publication that was begin in 1890 as the “Arizona Republican.”

Seeing Red AZ has frequently covered the ever-shrinking dual agenda, far leftwing Arizona República.  Arizona Republic: Compressing the press was posted last August. It contains links to three other reports on the distressed newspaper. Rather than considering this dubious Gannett lifeline, the newspaper could resort to reporting with integrity, instead of crafting news. It could stop insulting its few remaining readers. It might survive. But the daily prefers to fade to black spewing venom with its biases intact.

Gannett’s 100 page 2013 annual report requires a CPA and lawyer to decipher “the company” (as it refers to itself) code.  The New York Stock Exchange is easier to read. Gannett continues to tumble.

 


Indiana becomes first state to reject Common Core

March 26, 2014

Other states seek repeal as anti-Fed Ed movement takes hold

Less than four years after Indiana became an early adopter of the national Common Core education standards, Gov. Mike Pence signed legislation Monday making Indiana the first state to opt out of the controversial school guidelines, according to this report in the Indianapolis Star.

Republican Sen. Scott Schneider, the bill’s author said, “This voids Common Core, and we are starting the process of writing new standards. Eternal vigilance of parents is still needed, and I encourage you to do so.”

SB 91 is a strong statement that we are moving forward, moving away from Common Core, protecting Indiana sovereignty and student data,” said Schneider.

Even liberal New York has lost confidence in the scheme.

Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Kentucky —- the first state to adopt Common Core before the “standards” were even publicly released —- all have measures moving through their state legislators to at least halt, if not completely abolish the so-called standards.

But in Arizona the deception continues, as John Huppenthal, Arizona’s Superintendent of Public Instruction has changed the highly charged name of his Obama-influenced vision for Arizona classrooms from “Common Core” to “Arizona College and Career Ready Standards” —- in the mistaken belief we won’t notice.

Fortunately, we have a choice. Diane Douglas is the undisputed conservative running for state Superintendent of Public Instruction. Check out the key words across the top of her website. They’re sure to brighten your day.


Crazed porn prof attacks teen pro-life activist

March 22, 2014

University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young, is facing criminal charges after a videotaped confrontation with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign, harassed and tussled with the 16-year-old girl. 

Miller-Young, whose faculty web page says she specializes in black cultural studies, pornography and sex work, claims she was “traumatized by the graphic imagery.”

Thrin Short, her older sister Joan, 21, and other young pro-life supporters are members of the Christian pro-life group Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust. They were holding signs and demonstrating in a free speech zone on the campus earlier this month when Miller-Young went berserk.

The professor was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. Read the police report courtesy of the Santa Barbara Independent newspaper.

This video of the assault and theft was made by the young victim.

The newspaper also has the full report, including a comment from the wordsmith lawyer representing Miller-Young, who called the pro-life supporters, “anti-choice.”
