Faux Snooze (Fox News) veers left

March 19, 2019

“Fair and Balanced” should be retitled “Fake and Biased”

In the wake of the announcement that Fox News has disgracefully removed popular Judge Jeanine Pirro for speaking the truth, (video) we read that the once conservative network is bringing former Democratic National Committee chairman, Donna Brazile on-board as a commentator.

Who could forget Donna? She was exposed for informing members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign of questions in advance of a debate and town hall during the 2016 presidential primary and was forced to relinquish her position as DNC chair.

Hiring this slippery sneak is quite a coup for Fox News.

Now Judge Jeanine has been suspended for rightly calling into question the patriotism of hijab wearing, rabid anti-Semite U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Somali-born newly elected Democrat representing Minnesota.

Viewers are boycotting the cable network. President Donald Trump, a longtime friend of Judge Pirro, urged the network to “bring back” her show.”

In 2013 Rush Limbaugh was insightfully ahead of the pack when he advised a caller to “stop watching” Fox News. The caller was venting his frustration over the deferential coverage accorded Barack Obama and the array of liberals on the “Fair and Balanced” network.

SRAZ had earlier exposed the liberal line-up of paid contributors and often bizarre skew inFox News: “Fair and Balanced” credibility tanksAmnesty is prevailing view, Fox silences dissent.”

Leftist New Zealand PM irrationally blames guns for massacre

March 18, 2019

Gun restrictions are coming to low crime New Zealand

Following the horrific massacre killing at least 50 people and wounding another 50 in terror attacks targeting two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, the government has responded with exactly the wrong message. In this Guardian article, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is gushingly and favorably compared to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes.

PM Jacinda Ardern — now wearing a wearing hijab, in a sign of solidarity — has announced New Zealand’s government will reform the country’s gun laws in the wake of last Friday’s carnage. The hate-based slaughter of Islamic worshippers in was perpetrated by 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant, an Australian, who is a self-described white supremacist. He is in police custody.

Speaking after her weekly cabinet meeting, PM Ardern stated that government ministers had agreed “in principle” to reform gun laws. “Within 10 days of this horrific act of terrorism we will have announced reforms which will, I believe, make our community safer,” she said.

How much safer?  According the New Zealand police, there were 69 total murders with a firearm between Jan.1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2017 in the entire nation.

Obviously New Zealand is reeling from the unspeakable assault perpetrated by a vicious criminal. Yet vowing to enact tighter gun laws is not the answer. Had some of the people in the mosques been armed, they would have been able to respond to the murderous rampage. Gun restrictions only impact the law abiding. Those intent on evil will always find a way to carry it out. We’ve already witnessed vicious knifings and intentional vehicular homicides perpetrated in Europe. The United Kingdom has some of the toughest gun control laws in the world.

The U.K.’s Sun newspaper in an article headlined, “Endless Knife Crime,” reported the total number of attacks involving a knife or bladed instrument recorded in 2018 rose 16 percent to 40,147, a seven-year-high.

London’s Telegraph News covered the lengthy series of intentional vehicular homicides in this report headlined, “Europe from Westminster to Nice: Vehicle rampage attacks in UK and Europe.” The gruesome list culminated with the July 14, 2016 Bastille Day slaughter in which 87 celebrants, including families with children, were killed and 458 were injured near the seafront of Nice, France, when a lorry was intentionally driven into the crowd. No gun was used to perpetrate this mass slaughter.

Watch this interview with Second Amendment attorney Stephen Halbrook, as he explains the current generous local gun laws in New Zealand, which is a peaceable society.


Will the left “Kavanaugh” sexist O’Rourke? & Update

March 17, 2019

Republicans excluded from double standard Democrats enjoy

Robert Francis O’Rourke is a Democrat and former Texas congressman who has announced he’s running for President of the United States.  Although his lawyer father’s grandparents immigrated from Ireland, Robert prefers to engage with voters using the name, “Beto.”  We’ll take our cue from Fox News host Laura Ingraham, and call him, “Bob.”

Bob O’Rourke has a thorny issue or two that far supersede his appropriation of a Mexican nickname to advance his career goals or his penchant for flailing his arms, removing articles of clothing and constantly gesticulating while wildly pointing as he speaks. Addressing a gathering at a coffee shop recently, he childishly jumped up on the counter, appallingly admitting that he “sometimes” helps with raising his three kids. When discussing the 2020 presidential race, O’Rourke arrogantly asserts he was “just born to be in it.”  

It’s important to know that Bob/Beto has an undeniably unsavory and misogynist past from his days as a member of a punk band called the Cult of the Dead Cow. He also spent time as a computer hacker and remains an active, enthusiastic skateboarder.

Using the pseudonym “Psychedelic Warlord,” punk rocker Bob/Beto O’Rourke, had these fine things to say about females he referred to as “Ultra Trendies.” This is an excerpt:

  “ULTRA TRENDIES are usually the ‘scene sluts’ that many of the men folk admire so. They show up, get drunk with the band, and tell the lead singer, “I really like your music.  I think it’s a lot like the Sex Pistols.  Sooo… You wanna f**k?”

Tell the Nazi Skins in your area that this certain ULTRA TRENDY has AIDS. To kill an ULTRA TRENDY female, show her a picture of what she’d look like without make-up. Tell him or her that they’re completely ugly. Tell ’em that the new ‘punk’ thing to do is to play in the middle of the freeway. Tell the ULTRA TRENDY that the new trend is to butt-f**k skinheads.”

Bob/Beto doesn’t deny any of these writings. He simply dismisses them as occurring when he was a teen and in early twenties, when he toured with a punk rock band.

The horrific allegations brought against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, after his nomination — which he vehemently denied — were alleged to have occurred during his teen years. The perpetually enraged left was prepared to serve Judge Kavanaugh his head on a platter as they soiled his reputation and bewildered his wife, two young daughters and his longtime judicial colleagues and friends.

Will the radical left now come after Bob/Beto O’Rourke and attempt to destroy him?  Don‘t hold your breath. He’s a Democrat.

Reuters News Service details the disturbing past of Robert Francis O’Rourke.  No wonder he prefers to be known as “Beto.” There are no police reports or mug shots for anyone named “Beto.”

Take time to read the in-depth investigative special report, “Beto: The Beta Version.” The sheer arrogance of someone with this sordid history and deranged thinking regarding himself as presidential material is appalling.  Among his exploits, he is a thief who stole long-distance phone service for his dial-up modem (for which the owners were charged) and wrote a murder fantasy in which the narrator drives over children on the street. This is an excerpt:

“One day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles. … This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams,” he wrote, according to Reuters. “As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.”

Ponder that.

McCain & the “dossier”: It’s worse than we thought

March 16, 2019

 

Jeff Dunetz, writing for The Lid, headlines his report, “BREAKING: McCain And Aide Worked With Steele To Spread Dossier All Around DC.”

As our longtime readers are aware, from time to time SRAZ provides what has turned out to be a much read favorite — titled, “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.”

Today, we provide the back story to the sordid hoax intended to bring down the candidacy of Donald Trump, and most assuredly keep him out of the White House.

The vengeful and jealous John McCain was integral to passing on the fraud created by political opponents of Trump during his presidential campaign, alleging that the Russians had compromising information on the candidate. It was known at the time that McCain personally hand-carried the sleaze-laden documents to then-FBI Director James Comey in 2016. 

In his own inimitable and vulgar style, he acknowledged in 2017, “I did what duty demanded I do,” in passing on the documents. “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell.”

Yet as the salacious report exploded and dominated the news, McCain’s involvement mysteriously faded into the smutty haze.

The only way to deliver this potent news and fully reveal its unscrupulous purveyor is via the actual report. For a peek into the depraved mind of Arizona’s former senior senator, we urge you to read:McCain And Aide Worked With Steele To Spread Dossier All Around DC.”

The enemy within: Sen. RINOs join Dems to restrict Trump & Update

March 15, 2019

Republicrat senators, in a shameful display, voted with Democrats Thursday to block President Trump’s declaration of an emergency at the southern border.

The president declared the emergency after being blocked by congressional Democrats in his efforts to secure our southern border and halt the steady stream of illegal invaders, crime, drugs and human trafficking. Many traveling with children fraudulently claim to be family units to enhance their changes of being granted asylum.

Businessman Donald Trump —- based on his stated promise to build a border wall, rose like cream to the top of his sixteen bottlenecked opponents in 2016. Most of them have since vanished from the political consciousness. He then demolished problem-plagued Hillary Clinton in the General Election.

Now, instead of coalescing behind the man who resuscitated the Republican Party, spineless Republicans are expressing concern that by invoking the National Emergencies Act, the President is exceeding his authority. This is preposterous on it’s face.  

Although the left is going ballistic over President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to secure our southern border in response to congress’ failure to act, the ability to do so is not a new construct emanating from the Trump White House.

The National Emergencies Act was enacted by Congress in 1976, when it was signed into law by President Gerald Ford. It has no specific definition of what is considered an emergency, but has historically been invoked during unusual threats to the nation. There have been 58 national emergencies declared since the act‘s inception. Thirty-one of them remain in effect today.

In 1979, Pres. Jimmy Carter initially put the act to use to declare a national emergency freezing all Iranian government assets in the U.S. in response to the Iran hostage crisis. His national emergency is still in place and has been renewed annually by successive presidents, as required by law.

Pres. George W. Bush declared national emergency acts following the September 11, 2001 attacks. In all, he declared 13. As president, Barack Obama declared national emergencies on 12 foreign relations issues that have also been renewed.

Yet in the House last month, a dirty dozen plus one Republicrats voted in unison with the united Dems 245-182 to pass a resolution rejecting President Trump’s declaration. Thursday’s 59-41 roll call vote on H.J. Res. 46 in the Senate will send it to Trump’s desk. President Trump has indicated he will veto it.

Contemptible Senate Republicans who appallingly voted with Democrats are Lamar Alexander (TN), Roy Blunt (MO), Susan Collins (ME), Mike Lee (UT), Jerry Moran (KS), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Rand Paul (KY), Rob Portman (OH), Mitt Romney (UT), Marco Rubio (FL), Pat Toomey (PA), and Roger Wicker (MS). Arizona Sen. Martha McSally supported the president.

Regardless of what Republicrats and Democrats assert, President Trump absolutely has the authority to declare a national emergency on the border. He has that authority because Congress explicitly gave the power to the executive branch in 1976.

President Trump has just signed the first veto of his presidency:

 


Paul Manafort’s jeopardy: There’s a leftist link 

March 14, 2019

The syndicated game show Jeopardy! has been In the news recently after the debonair host Alex Trebek shockingly disclosed he’s been diagnosed with a stage 4 pancreatic malignancy. 

Longtime viewers of the popular quiz show will remember former contestant Matt Jackson, a young paralegal who had one of the long-running show’s most memorable winning streaks —- 13 episodes. The intellectually gifted 23-year-old was impossible not to cheer for. The Yale philosophy major never caught up with all-time winner Ken Jennings who topped out at a record 74 episodes in a row, but Jackson won $413,612. He recently appeared with other top winners participating in the All-Star Tournament.

Wondering what this has to do with Paul Manafort, President Trump‘s former campaign manager who has been charged in connection with fraud unrelated to the campaign?

Early in the show, Trebek asked Jackson to talk about his “very different” parents.

He responded, “My mother is white, liberal and Jewish, and my dad is black, Christian and conservative.”

Matt Jackson comes from an intellectual gene pool. Both of his parents are lawyers. His father is Washington, D. C. attorney Darryl Jackson, who served as a Commerce Department official under former President George W. Bush.

His maternal grandfather, Barnett Berman, was a physician at Johns Hopkins University. Matt Jackson cited him as an early influence in becoming well-read.

And Jackson’s mother — the woman her own son described as “liberal”? Barack Obama nominated Amy Berman Jackson as United States District Judge for the District of Columbia. She was confirmed by a 97–0 vote on March 17, 2011, and was commissioned the next day. The roll call vote can be seen here.  Following their established pattern, Arizona Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl both voted to confirm the leftist nominee.

It was Judge Jackson who added three-and-a-half years on top of the nearly four-year sentence Manafort received last week in a separate case in Virginia, though he’ll get credit for nine months already served.

This is the statement the nearly 70-year-old delivered to the court prior to the sentence being handed down. It was met with an icy reception from Judge Amy Berman who said she was not satisfied with Manafort’s apology, accusing him of trying to avoid punishment.
