Farcical magician Kwok tries to make Kelli Ward vanish

July 18, 2018

Leftist newspaper’s not so subtle political attempt to eliminate stellar conservative, Dr. Kelli Ward

We’ve previously stated that we read the local newspaper so you don’t have to. In addition to being overcharged for having your intelligence insulted, it‘s guaranteed to raise the blood pressure of any rational reader. The leftward lurch is no longer subtle. Columnists admit to being liberals and reporters — journalists, have vanished — are not at all reluctant to interject liberal bias into news reports. Whether they do so on their own or under marching orders from above, the end game is the same. Conservative candidates are given the boot in the Hillary-endorsing newspaper, which still prints endorsement lists prior to elections for its remaining readers they consider easily influenced sheep.

Case in point is an article by reporter Abe Kwok. On the surface he appears to be covering a Democrat, Muslim, female immigration lawyer, running for the U.S. Senate in Arizona. He notes that she is “barely registering a blip on the media radar,” and her ability to fund raise is nearly nonexistent. He lays that off to the fact that Democrat Kyrsten Sinema is sucking all of the money out of the Dem donor base.

The actual purpose of the entire hit piece masquerading as a news report — ostensibly about the little tractioned Democrat candidate follows:

“[She] has the lowest name recognition in a field that includes Republican U.S. Rep. Martha McSally and former Sheriff Joe Arpaio. It also hasn’t helped that this has been an election cycle with an unusually high number of candidates, each competing for voter attention.”

Notice Kwok names only two other candidates, in a primary field he admits has numerous competitors. He identifies Martha McSally (frequently referred to on this site as “Sally McCain“) and 86-year-old Joe Arpaio, a respected career lawman, who should not be running for a six-year U.S. Senate term. Siphoning conservative votes in a race he can’t win serves only to help the opposition.

Conspicuously and intentionally missing is principled conservative senate candidate Dr. Kelli Ward. A physician and former two-term state senator, she has earned the endorsements of a growing list of high profile conservatives, many nationally prominent. Arizona Congressman, Paul Gosar, (R-CD 4) a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, has enthusiastically endorsed Ward’s candidacy as noted by Breitbart News —- a bold move since he serves with McSally in the U.S. House. 

We urge you to watch THIS fact-filled video ad drawing the clear distinction between Dr. Kelli Ward and her deceptive McOpponent.

AZ Republic’s selective memory, hypocrisy, misplaced outrage

July 17, 2018

The headline in this morning’s edition of Arizona’s leftist newspaper, still apoplectic over the fact that Donald Trump was overwhelmingly elected President of the United States, blasts a single word, all caps, headline: ‘DISGRACEFUL.’

It refers to President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland and Trump’s reputed recognition of Putin’s denials of meddling in U.S. elections. President Trump has since amended his comment saying he used the words, “would not” when he in fact intended to say “would” when describing whether he thought the Russians were possibly hacking our elections.

Trump-hater John McCain, suffering from what his Mayo neurosurgeons described as an aggressive brain malignancy, has not been seen in public since last year. Yet we are led to believe he is still sending out tweets and press releases. His staff is hard at work, but it’s a good bet the seriously ill senator is not.  His wife recently sent out messages of thanks to his devoted caregivers. This is supposedly McCain’s latest missive, in which the failed presidential candidate accused the president of “disgraceful behavior” and “defending a tyrant.” Not a negative word was heard from McCain when his underling Jeff Flake traveled to Communist Cuba with Obama and made deals with the murderous Castro dictators

 The hypocrisy is rampant.

When Barack Obama, attending a global nuclear security summit in South Korea — oblivious to his open mic — and conspiratorially leaned over asking for Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for “space,” the Arizona Republic  took it in stride.

“This is my last election,” Obama said. “After my election I’ll have more flexibility,” (brief video) assuring the Russian leader he would have the “flexibility” required to deal with Russia on missile defense issues after the 2012 presidential election.

There was no widespread media outrage regarding Obama’s collusion on a massive uranium deal selling Russia large U.S. reserves and the benefits that accrued to the Clinton Foundation in the wake of the transfers, as reported by the NY Times. Obama’s payoff of $1.7 billion in ransom to tyrannical, America-hating Iran for hostages was met with deafening silence.

Obama went on a worldwide apology tour, listing what he considered America’s transgressions and calling the United States “arrogant.” He bowed before the Muslim Saudi King and other tyrants and dictators. Where was the Arizona Republic‘s outrage then?  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed evidence that Obama operatives were deeply involved in trying to oust him from office.

Neither did Arizona’s Hillary-endorsing newspaper, blast headlines of her years of deceit and attempts to obscure the truth throughout her time as Obama’s Secretary of State or as a presidential candidate. The newspaper was enamored with the substandard known liar, described as engaging in a “staggering dereliction of duty and deception,” in the deaths — including the U.S. ambassador — at our government compound in Benghazi, Libya. Her compromising of national security by using a private server located in the bathroom closet of her home was given short shrift. Her lies were more than outrageous, they were dangerous and ongoing, but she was given a pass and endorsed.

The double standard is beyond rational, but it thrives at the local newspaper.


Arizona is Politico’s blue “Pick State” in mid-terms

July 16, 2018

Politico, the DC journal that should more accurately be named “LeftLurchio,” is almost as ecstatic as the AZ Repugnant newspaper over what they view as 2018 Democrat prospects here in Arizona.

Instead of cataloging the obvious bias, it’s fair to ask, “What brought our red state to this sorry situation?” It doesn’t take much mental wrangling to lasso the simple answer: The rank “stewardship” of McCain, McFlake, McDucey and McKyl.

SRAZ’s Sunday post,Obvious cracks in AZ Corp. Com. Candidate Glassman,” detailed the candidacy of slickster Rodney Glassman, a Democrat more adept at switching political parties than accruing accomplishments. Glassman is now an opportunistically newly minted Republican, running as a conservative for the AZ Corporation Commission, which sets rates on Arizona‘s public utilities. He has inexplicably been able to secure the endorsements of GOP office holders when, Jim O’Connor, a far better qualified, actual conservative candidate is in the race.

Even though pro-illegal invasion author Ethan Epstein was so eager to get this written, he errs on pertinent facts,* our best advice is to read,Is THIS the year Arizona finally turns blue? on an empty stomach.

* Overwhelmed by his duties as governor, Raul Castro left office mid-term to accept an ambassadorship to Argentina offered by President Jimmy Carter. The actual facts are available in,,Gov. Ducey overstates short-termer Castro’s impact on Arizona.

Epstein praises single-term Sen. Jeff Flake, neglecting to mention that he won the senate seat by a slim 3% margin, and opted not to run for reelection due to abysmal 18 percent approval ratings for his incessant bashing of President Trump in a state that carried the president to victory, awarding him all of its electoral votes.

Skewing “facts” might make an interesting story, but it doesn’t obscure the truth.


Obvious cracks in AZ Corp. Com. candidate Glassman

July 15, 2018

Rodney Glassman is a ‘Class A’ phony who should not be trusted with a seat on the Corporation Commission which sets rates on AZ’s public utilities 

Rodney Glassman is determined to tell to Arizona voters he’s the “conservative” running for a seat on the Arizona Corporation Commission. His signs are emblazoned with the word and his auto dialers blithely toss it around as an identifier. But the Democrat who opportunistically switches political parties with the same ease the rest of us change our underwear, has shown himself as a facile master of chicanery, who blithely places expediency above principle.

With chutzpah oozing from every pore, Glassman submitted a commentary to the Scottsdale Independent, in which he grandly announces,  “There’s a crisis of integrity at the Arizona Corporation Commission…”  That this man, who doesn’t know the meaning of the word, uses it glibly to define others is preposterous.

SRAZ wrote this revealing post about Glassman, March 16, 2918, titled, “Opportunist ex-Dem Glassman now GOP Corp. Com. Candidate.” It includes a link to the stellar expose of Glassman by investigative reporter Linda Bentley writing for the conservative Sonoran News. She exposed Glassman in this June 2017 report:Recycled Democrat Rodney Glassman running as Republican for ACC.

Bentley wrote, “Hailing as a progressive Democrat at the time, Glassman was a former legislative aide for U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, a far-left Democrat and advocate of open borders with Mexico.” Seeing Red AZ posted about Grijalva settling a $48,395 “severance package” in 2015 with one of his top staffers who threatened a lawsuit claiming he was frequently drunk and created a hostile workplace environment.

Perennial candidate Glassman has previously declared, that if elected, he would model his service after Grijalva, who called for an economic boycott of Arizona in protest of SB1070, which passed in 2010 and required police to determine the immigration status of someone arrested or detained when there is reasonable suspicion they are illegally present in the country. That most hotly contested provision of the law was subsequently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Adding to the collection of Glassman exposes is this latest one, “Rodney the Ungood,” by Joel Feinman, a Tucson criminal defense attorney who teaches justice studies at the UofA. Feinman’s article appeared in the June 10, edition of the Pima Liberator. Each of the reports are chock full of information about the smarmy Rodney Glassman.

Most shocking is the con he has pulled on elected Republicans— all of whom should know better — yet have endorsed this political opportunist, who has shown himself to be totally devoid of principles.

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, a Republican, whose name is now missing from the endorsement list, is inexplicably still listed on filing documents as Glassman’s campaign chairman.

The actual conservative candidate in the race is Jim O’Connor. Check out his website by clicking on his name.


Is this a rational McQuestion?

July 14, 2018

AZ Republic reporters engage in foolishness, misuse of English language

Our Friday post was titled, “AZ Republic engages in more liberal lunacy.” We have to admit our timing was off with that posting. The same day online edition of the newspaper, which we missed, headlines this inane question:

“It has been one year since Sen. John McCain’s brain cancer was discovered. What’s next?” The sub-header reads, “Observers unsure on McCain prognosis, his return to D.C.

The accompanying article, calling the July 2017 dire diagnosis “a mysterious — and complicated — milestone,” required the combined efforts of two reporters.

A separate report marking the year the Republic irrationally and repeatedly refers to as a “milestone,” details Cindy McCain expressing gratitude to her husband’s caregivers. He has not been seen in public since last December.

The term milestone marks an achievement. Having Mayo Clinic neurosurgeons give the life-altering diagnosis of glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, is a ridiculous misuse of the word. McCain, who will be 82 in August, has been diagnosed with the same horrendous disease that took the lives of his friend Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden’s son, Beau.

SRAZ’s policy has advanced to not including direct links to items in the failing disseminator of foolishness. But our readers are a knowledgeable group, continually demonstrating common sense with cogent comments. For that reason, we’re giving you the opportunity to answer the question. “What’s next?”


AZ Republic pushes more liberal lunacy

July 13, 2018

Chamber of Commerce calls out Marxist agenda of teacher’s Socialist Pied Piper and gets hammered

When you’re an unrepentant liberal like the Arizona Republic’s editorialist Linda Valdez, playing games with words comes naturally. She advocates on behalf of physician assisted suicide, calling it, “a medically prescribed exit.” According to Valdez, denying this right is religion-based discrimination. “Suicide,” she claims, “is a loaded word that should be replaced with something less emotionally charged.” Most of the rest of us find it difficult to separate death from emotion. Another of her anti-faith offerings is, “Will the God Squad tale away your right to die.” Abortion on demand becomes “women’s health care.” There is nothing healthy about abortion — especially for the pre-born baby, who feels pain as he’s burned by chemicals or has his spinal cord severed and skull collapsed.  No wonder we need fabricated terminology to describe this horror.

Taxes?  “What’s wrong with Phoenix raising taxes?” is actually a headline topping one of her loads of drivel passing for a column.  Valdez is a staunch cradle to grave believer. With liberals, having the government provide for you throughout your lifetime is a belief comparable to the religious fervor she so disdains.

Valdez rails about illegals dying in the scorching desert heat, but places no blame on them for making unwise choices. They invade. They die. America is to blame.

She typifies the left-wing slant of the newspaper, which spews its outrage on Page One over what it apparently finds to be a slur in today’s edition. The leader of the striking teachers who abandoned their students for a week while violating their contractual agreements marching for a 20% pay increase is Noah Karvelis, 23, a self described Socialist, who was Bernie Sanders 2016 Arizona presidential campaign organizer. Sanders has no problem referring to himself as a Socialist. But when the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry issued this press release calling Karvelis out for addressing the 2018 Socialist convention in Chicago, that’s beyond the bounds of propriety. The leftist newspaper huffily declares it “offers a glimpse into the opposition strategy,”

After Gov. Ducey recklessly acquiesced to the teacher’s demands, they have come up with a Marxist redistribution of wealth scheme of placing hefty additional taxes on job creators they derisively call, “the rich.” It will be a ballot initiative in the form of an unalterable, permanent Constitutional Amendment with a permanent funding stream in addition to the others they already have 

Passage of ballot propositions — 301 in 2000 increasing the state sales tax and 123 in 2016 a grab from the state land trust — guaranteed more money for education, which apparently is never enough for the teachers who work 8½ months a year. School districts routinely hold budget overrides and bond elections to “get more money into the classroom” —- eduspeak for bolstering teacher’s salaries. A major premise of passing the Arizona Lottery in 1980 was that money from ticket sales would fund schools.

Don’t fall for the educrat extortionists latest ploy. This time the AZ Chamber of Commerce — an organization we’ve disagreed with on illegal immigration — is right on the money. 


Kyrsten Sinema’s devious metamorphosis

July 12, 2018

Political chameleon works to dupe voters

Kyrsten Sinema is running for the U.S. Senate in Arizona. The Grand Canyon State has two senate slots without viable incumbents. First-termer Jeff Flake withdrew from a reelection bid, due to embarrassingly low 18% approval ratings. Gravely ill octogenarian John McCain, irresponsibly clings to the reins of power, though he has not been seen in public since last year. The two men are open border RINOs. Democrat Sinema equally weak on border security, is far more complex.

Like a magician, she has slickly conjured up a new persona. Gone is the frequent visitor to the Obama White House who boasted about being the first bisexual elected to Congress when she was elected to represent AZ’s 9th Congressional District in 2012. Raised LDS, she is now an acknowledged atheist, who refused to take her oath of office with her hand on the Bible. She was beaten in that record by Muslim convert  U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), who took his oath on the Quran, reputedly owned by Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson purchased a copy to better understand the mindset of the Muslim Barbary pirates who were capturing American ships and holding cargo, crews and kidnapped passengers, frequently enslaved, for ransom.

Sinema, obscuring her extremist background behind a newly softened and ‘Independent’ facade, is doing her best to hide her radically leftist past. Even the word “Democrat” is missing from her ads and signs.

In her latest campaign ad, titled “Work Together,“ she declares herself the adult in the room who works across the aisle, warmly advising Arizonans to butt out after the votes are counted. They “shouldn’t have to worry about what’s happening in Washington. They should just get up in the morning, take care of their families go to work…and (inaudible). It’s our job to make sure we are we are working for them, not against them,” she says of Congress.

In our recent Mother’s Day post, we inserted a memory jogger about Sinema’s foul-mouthed deprecation of stay-at-home Moms:

An ardent supporter of same-sex marriage, she mockingly blasted women who devote themselves to their families rather than working outside the home as “leeches.” Her foul-mouthed comment was: “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f**k are we really talking about here?” Following the spirit of unity Sinema now claims to embrace, she derided conservatives as “Neanderthals.”

Having previously ran and lost as a Green Party candidate, Sinema has carefully recrafted her image. Don’t be conned. Sinema is still the same Marxist who sent May Day and Cinco de Maya greetings through ads placed in the Communist Party newspaper, People’s Weekly World, as reported in 2012 by researcher Trevor Louden on Breitbart News.

Her Senate ads are the work of professional handlers and script writers. Changeling Sinema can run, but she can’t hide.

SRAZ joins these conservatives in endorsing Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate. Her defining principles are clearly stated. She will provide a much needed senate vote for President Trump.
