Exceptional exposé of agenda-driven public/government schools

October 24, 2021

Columbia University Law Professor Philip Hamburger has written a stellar assessment of America’s public school system, titled “Is the Public School System Constitutional?” It was posted as a commentary in the Wall Street Journal.

His summery includes these words: “Education consists mostly in speech, and parents have a right under the First Amendment to exercise authority over what their children hear.”

The WSJ requires a subscription, so the link may not work. Tap “Read Article” in the WSJ’s pop-up box. It’s important reading. If the first paragraph link doesn’t work, SRAZ located the commentary on the Fry Electronics site, which advertises itself as “an automatic aggregator of the all world’s media.” The paragraphs are oddly spaced, but the content remains. One way or another, this is a must read.


Rapist on train: Here’s the rest of the story…and more

October 23, 2021

Media Research Center’s Newsbusters has “the rest of the story” on the horrifying report that recently surfaced regarding the rape of a female passenger on a Philadelphia train. What news coverage there was focused on the lack of concern shown by blasé fellow travelers who watched the criminal sexual assault and did nothing to aid the victim. Apathy is not a traditional American value, but has gained a foothold when America is being flooded with illegal aliens, who are not imbued with the moral principles that have traditionally undergirded our culture. They cower at calling attention to themselves, concerned that dealing with law enforcement will expose their illegal status.

What was omitted from the reports was who the criminal rapist actually is, and background on his status. Newsbusters refers to Tucker Carlson’s Fox News report on the shocking crime committed by 35-year-old Fiston Ngoy, a Congolese illegal alien, who was released in 2019 by an immigration judge without deportation despite a history of serious offenses. Ngoy was originally in the U.S. on a student visa in 2012. He has not been a student since 2015.

This criminality is not a rarity. Neither is the repulsive apathy. Yet the Biden administration has opened the floodgates to illegals, after tearing down the border wall construction undertaken by President Trump, fulfilling a campaign promise to American citizens.

And while Biden’s surrogates have ordered COVID vaccinations for Americans, unvaccinated illegals surging across our sovereign border have no such mandates as they are transported to American cites across our nation. These are the latest numbers of “encounters,” from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Biden’s handlers have devoted themselves to dismantling the Trump administration’s effective enforcement policies. Vice President Kamala Harris, supposedly in charge of border enforcement, has shown no interest (brief video) in addressing the invasion, since the millions entering illegally are viewed as future democrat voters. The Washington Examiner headlines its recent report, “Illegal immigration soars under Biden to third-highest in 97 years.” Take time to acquaint yourself with the facts of this crisis.

With continually escalating prices, along with food and merchandise shortages, Biden’s approval ratings have fallen from tanking to being in the toilet — with a 42% approval rating. His $3.5 Trillion spending scheme which will indenture future generations of Americans is the “icing” on this putrid cake.


We’re assured Americans actually voted for this

October 22, 2021

According to the radically leftist media, anyone questioning the veracity of the 2020 presidential election is a truth-denying, political Neanderthal.

Irrational news report blames climate change on racial bias

October 21, 2021

“People of color” latest buzzwords to separate Americans by DNA

The absurd news report would be worthy of an April Fools’ Day joke, but it was given Page One prominence in an above-the-fold issue of the failing Arizona Republic on October 20. The headline? ‘Climate change is biased, EPA says.’ The next bold type line reads, ‘People of color harmed more often, report finds.’

The three-page report is typical of the manipulation that has put the local newspaper in dire straits, losing subscribers faster than any other in Gannett’s national stable.

It’s a certainty there is an agenda at play. In looking up the Biden era administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the name Michael Regan jumps out. Surely this can’t be the son of former President Reagan, misspelled? The answer is, of course not.

Regan, confirmed March 11, 2021 by a mostly party-line vote of 65 to 35, follows two other acting EPA directors since January. His assertion that climate change is biased is based in his own leftist vantage point that everything is biased against minorities. Regan is heralded as the first black male to head the department.

The agency was established by President Richard Nixon in 1970, but has now morphed into a quasi cabinet position that is based in governmental overreaches and promoting unnecessary regulations on businesses and property owners. It also incorporates an office of civil rights that has nothing to do with the environment.

This chart shows how the EPA has increased over the years, currently employing 14,279 people, with a budget of $9,237,153,000. The Biden administration’s proposed EPA FY 2022 budget has expanded to over $11,233,000,000 billion with 15,324 employees.

Not only does the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-despising newspaper routinely attack Republicans on a daily basis, it does so in unison, with editorials, viciously discriminatory columnists, carefully selected letters to the editor and the majority of cartoons which uniformly vilify conservative elected officials, candidates and perspectives, while making ethnic diversity its main focus.

This fake news purveyor, gasping its last breaths, needs to be put to rest. If you are still among the ever-dwindling number of subscribers to the Arizona Republic, and are tired of paying continually increasing rates to have your intelligence insulted, canceling is simple. Contact customer service at 1-800-332-6733. Balances less than $10.00 will not be refunded. It needs every dime to exist. You’ll be directed to an agent in the Philippines, since the fraudulent newspaper can pay half the salary they would have to pay American employees.


AZ Sec. of State candidate Shawnna Bolick is running…scared

October 20, 2021

The emails are being sent in rapid succession, with the obvious expectation that Republican voters have defective memories. Secretary of State candidate Shawnna Bolick seems to have forgotten that the GOP logo is the elephant, esteemed for its keen sense of recall. We also grasp the differences between primary and general elections.

Few voters are fans of single-term, coarse and crude democrat former Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes, and were happy to see him defeated for his fondness for easy-to-manipulate mail-in ballots and ballot harvesting.*  Fontes is currently running for Secretary of State on the democrat ticket, preposterously hoping to oversee statewide elections. He faces a democrat primary challenger.

The words “democrat ticket” are crucial in this context, since Shawnna Bolick conveniently forgets she also faces a Republican August 2, 2022 primary election where she will be pitted against two other Republican candidates. This is not the first time she’s tried this misleading ploy, stating she has two democrat (she calls them their preferred label, “Democratic”) candidates running against her, giving them unnecessary prominence by naming them. The fact is, the two men are actually running against one another in the August 2022 primary, not against Bolick. The general election, in which the winners of their political party’s primary go head-to-head, will occur on November 8, 2022.

Scheming Bolick has doubled down on pitching for campaign donations, pleading,  “It’s me, Shawnna Bolick, asking for your help. I know my team e-mailed you yesterday, but I thought I would reach out myself.” Feigned desperation drips off her pleas.

Although she ran for the legislature, losing twice in LD 11, and is concluding her second term in the state legislature after slickly moving to a district with a vacancy, she strangely chooses to define herself as “not a politician.”

She is also trying to deflect from the fact that President Trump has endorsed in the race, and it isn’t Bolick who won his praise. State Rep. Mark Finchem secured the prized endorsement.

Jab mandate: Comply with radical COVID agenda or lose your livelihood

October 19, 2021

Agenda driven medical reports link unrelated deaths to COVID

One of the most reliable sites for cutting edge news is Law Enforcement Today. SRAZ has previously linked to it. Today we do so again, taking our readers to an important report, headlined, “Exclusive: L.A. first responders ordered to turn over personal and genetic data to China-linked company or face firing,” that should concern every freedom-loving citizen.

First responders, including the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department are being required to upload their medical records and personal information into a Fulgent Genetics app used by the county to track employee compliance with the COVID-19 vaccination mandate.  It includes a required consent to release their personal and genetic information to foreign nations. Fulgent is an international technology company with ties to China.

Five Los Angeles County employees recently filed suit against the county, alleging the vaccine mandate for county workers issued by executive order in August and ratified by the Board of Supervisors is unconstitutional.

If the name Hilda Solis sounds vaguely familiar, there is good reason. Leftist Solis, whose parents were illegals, was proclaimed by then-president Obama, and given the cabinet post of Secretary of Labor. She is now the chairman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors promoting this radical agenda via an executive order requiring the L.A. County’s 110,000 employees to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

Be sure to read the linked headline to fully comprehend the extent of the governmental overreaches into citizen’s private information. Proving we have to be wary of information disseminated via the MSM, Yahoo!Finance provides a glowing report on Fulgent Genetics. It is only in paragraphs five and six that the troubling China connection is revealed.

Health dishonesty abounds. In the coverage of the death of former secretary of state Colin Powell, the news, which now promotes a deceitful Dr. Fauci pushed booster shot, reports Powell, 84, “died of Covid, despite two vaccines.” Omitted from most reports is the fact that Powell also suffered from Parkinson’s disease and multiple myeloma, a blood cancer that weakens the body’s ability to fight infections.


Scientific authorities Biden, Pope meet to discuss climate                           

October 18, 2021

Neither Joe Biden, nearly 79, nor Pope Francis, soon to be 85, are scientists or medical doctors. They are both leftists, and as such are proponents of the debated issue known alternatively as climate change or global warming. Climate change is much preferred since it cuts a wider swath including global cooling, wildfires, droughts, floods or other phenomena that have been recorded throughout history. Francis gave an encyclical on ecology, declaring that climate change is real and mainly “a result of human activity.” The problem is urgent, he said. “Never have we so hurt and mistreated our common home as we have in the last two hundred years.”

The United States is just over two hundred years since its founding, making Francis’ words appear to be a pointed barb. Given that no nation was mechanized then, his time frame is more than odd. These two wizards will also discuss the Covid-19 pandemic.

The duo will meet at the Vatican Oct. 29 to discuss things over which they have no control, though it would seem the pope would use the opportunity to dissuade Catholic Biden from his pro-abortion stance, since a pro-life position is a basic tenant of the faith.

In June, the U.S. Catholic bishops overwhelmingly approved the drafting of a “teaching document” that many hope will rebuke Catholic politicians, including Biden, for receiving communion despite their support for the gruesome act of abortion.

But Biden and Francis are cunning liberals who are both more political than religious. Their agenda states the duo “will discuss working together on efforts grounded in respect for fundamental human dignity, including ending the COVID-19 pandemic. They must have missed that abortion permanently disrespects human dignity as preborn humans are brutally ripped from what should be the safety of their mother’s uterus.

When Argentine Francis came to the United States to address congress in 2015, he stopped first in Cuba, prioritizing his meeting with Communist dictators Fidel and Raul Castro, where they warmly conversed in Spanish and dined, like old amigos.

Arizona U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, a principled Catholic and conservative Republican, shunned Francis’ speech.


Arresting reporters aids circulation

October 17, 2021

Given the appallingly low rate of subscribers at the Trump-hating, Hillary-endorsing, Biden-supporting, Arizona Republic newspaper, this recent AP headline, “China paper’s circulation booms after arrests of staff,” tucked away on Page 13 of the Business Section, was intriguing.

As conservatives, we don’t advocate communist-style news suppression though it relentlessly thrives at the uni-voice local newspaper where there is no dissent from the rock-solid leftist lurch.

The increase in circulation in Hong Kong was in protest of the government’s repressive tactics. If you haven‘t already done so, the loudest voice we have in protest is to cancel subscriptions. Call: 1-800-332-6733. It’s a great feeling not to pay ever-increasing fees to be insulted.


Biden must reinstate Pres. Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy

October 16, 2021

In another vindication for President Trump, federal district judge Matthew Kacsmaryk ordered the Biden administration to “enforce and implement” what is formally called the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP). This decision comes in response to a lawsuit from Texas and Missouri, contending the administration’s attempt to terminate the policy was illegal and harmful. The 53-page order can be read here, courtesy of Scribd. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the ruling.

The policy was established and expanded in 2019 by President Trump and involved sending illegal aliens back to Mexico, rather than being released into the U.S., until their immigration hearings took place.  Once released, there was no incentive for them showing up for their court dates…and they didn’t.

Texas and Missouri each sued the Biden administration for canceling MPP — demanding the restoration of the program.

“President Biden could immediately remedy the influx of crime pouring across our border by reinstating the Migrant Protection Protocols,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton stated in this motion. “Dangerous criminals are taking advantage of the lapse in law enforcement and it’s resulting in human trafficking, smuggling, a plethora of violent crimes, and a massive, unprecedented burden on state and federal programs for which taxpayers must foot the bill.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who has become more rational, free from the clutches of open border proponent John McCain, warned that the ongoing illegal immigration surge at the US-Mexico border is creating a golden opportunity for terror groups, calling it “another 9/11 in the making.”

“There are 80 countries that they pick people up from,” Graham told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “There are two terrorists from Yemen they caught just a few weeks ago. How easy would it be for an Al Qaeda or ISIS cell to leave Afghanistan and come to the southern border, to blend in with this group?”

“The Border Patrol is doing the best they can,” Graham added, “but they told me the likelihood of a terrorist attack coming from our southern border grows by the day.”

Meanwhile, in an unrelated ethical breach, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, has filed a complaint with the Office of Special Counsel, asking that it investigate whether Biden’s mouthpiece Jen Psaki violated the Hatch Act by advocating for the election of Virginia democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe. During a media briefing she said, “We’re going to do everything we can to help former Governor McAuliffe, and we believe in the agenda he’s representing.” 

Deeply entrenched radical leftist McAuliffe was the national chairman of the democrat party and chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. He is being challenged by successful businessman, Glenn Youngkin, endorsed by Pres. Trump.


Biden’s economy: Buy now, think later…when you’re in servitude

October 15, 2021

Recent news accounts describe the problems accompanying the staggering inflation delivered to Americans by Joe Biden, including escalating gas and energy prices, empty shelves in grocery stores and unaffordable housing. We are being told to buy holiday gifts now, since stock will not be replenished. Year-old cars are selling for more than they did new, and merchants are beginning to ration toilet paper again.

Although Biden mandates vaccines for Americans, hinging employment, schooling and the ability to travel on producing verification of falling in line with his demands, there are no such restrictions on the hundreds of thousands of illegals from countless countries, continuing to invade the United States and being transported and relocated across our nation.

U.S. Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN.), the chairman of the Republican Study Committee, sent this list of 42 disastrous items to his Republican colleagues, outlining the dangerous policies in President Biden’s $3.5 Trillion budget proposal. This list should energize us all to call the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Stacey Lennox of PJ Media urges lighting up the phone lines of individual congressional members stating. “it matters more than you think and some Democrats need to get more uncomfortable about the midterms than they already are.”

Take time to review these stats from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and it will be obvious that our agents are overworked as the numbers have grown beyond the ability to apprehend and hold the vast numbers for processing. They are referred to as “encounters.” These stats have not been updated since August 2021 and are currently much worse.
