Bill Nye, dedicated leftist, is no Science Guy

October 4, 2015

Incoherent pro-abortion ramblings appeal to media

We begin with the premise that Bill Nye is an odd duck. The comedy writer and entertainer who formerly toiled as a mechanical engineer before morphing into Bill Nye the bow-tie-wearing “Science Guy,” is a self-declared agnostic, a climate change advocate and an enthusiastic Obama supporter. He also holds a patent for never manufactured ballet shoes. With this whirlwind of activity surrounding him, he found time to get married, and remained a devoted husband, until be boogied 7 weeks after exchanging vows.

Nye has won the praise of liberal media outlets since taking on the topic of abortion — an issue with which he exhibits limited understanding — though the lame-stream media delightedly fawn over him.

NewsBusters’ Katie Yoder exposes the Bible bashing, farcical scientific “expert”  in 10 Worst Media Headlines Applauding Bill Nye’s Abortion Video.

After reading her report, watch the absurd video, in which Nye claims pro-life views are “just a reflection of a deep scientific lack of understanding and you literally or apparently literally don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Sounding more like a teen than the scientist he alleges to be, Nye says:

“And so when it comes to women’s right with respect to their reproduction, I think you should leave it to women. This is really – you cannot help but notice — I’m not the first guy to observe this, you have a lot of men of European descent passing these extraordinary laws based on ignorance. Sorry you guys. I know it was written or your interpretation of a book written 5,000 years ago, 50 centuries ago, makes you think that when a man and a woman have sexual intercourse they always have a baby. That’s wrong and so to pass laws based on that belief is inconsistent with nature. I mean it’s hard not to get frustrated with this, everybody. But you can’t tell somebody what to do. I mean she has rights over this, especially if she doesn’t like the guy that got her pregnant. She doesn’t want anything to do with your genes, get over it, especially if she were raped and all this. So it’s very frustrating on the outside, on the other side. We have so many more important things to be dealing with. We have so many more problems to squander resources on this argument based on bad science, on just lack of understanding.”

“I really encourage you to look at the facts. So I just really encourage you to not tell women what to do and not pursue these laws that really are in nobody’s best interest. Just really be objective about this. We have other problems to solve everybody. Come on. Come on. Let’s work together.”

Jeb! at 4%: Bushwhacked!

October 3, 2015

Buh, buh, buh…I’m heir apparent Jeb Bush

The latest Pew Research Center survey is not good news for the dynasty-based presidential aspirations of Jeb Bush. According to its latest poll released Friday, Jeb! has skidded to 4 percent in the 2016 Republican presidential campaign field. Donald Trump leads with 25 percent, while Dr. Ben Carson comes in second with 16 percent.

The polling group rightly concludes Republicans now prefer ‘New Ideas’ to ‘Experience.’

Slick speakers, Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio, increasingly seen by citizen voters as McCain allies and weak on the critical issue of illegal immigration, are in single-digit land, tied at third place with 8 percent.

Christians selected for death at Oregon college

October 2, 2015

“I will not name the shooter. I will not give him the credit he probably sought with this horrific and cowardly act.”        — Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin  discussing the massacre

In an act of anti-religious terrorism, a gunman opened fire Thursday morning at Umpqua Community College in the rural community of Roseburg Oregon. An English professor and 8 students were killed and 7 others were wounded, with three listed in critical condition.

According to a on-scene account, “The shooter was lining people up and asking if they were Christian. If they said yes, then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs.”

The local newspaper in the town of under 25,000 carries this report.

Barack Obama hopped on the terrorist assault to advocate for “common sense” gun laws. He neglected to add that this carnage took place on such a gun-free campus that even the single security guard was unarmed.

Like many blue states under Democrat control, Oregon recently tightened its gun regulations, leaving people less able to defend themselves. Not only are the top officers Democrats, but the party controls the state House and Senate.

The violence perpetrated by a craven terrorist should not constrain our Constitutional rights.  In 2013, Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin, a strong Second Amendment advocate, wrote this letter to Vice President Joe Biden: (Click letter to enlarge)

Jeb Bush’s funding partners raise troubling questions

October 1, 2015

Carson’s donations coming from average Americans, front runner Donald Trump is self funding

Patrick Howley, writing for Breitbart* exposes the disturbing connections between Jeb Bush’s oil shipping business — which is partly financed by far leftist billionaire George Soros’ Chinese business partner and protégé Chen Feng. The well-researched report is deserving of attention. 

If we’re known by the company we keep, there is no question Jeb! has some explaining to do. It will take an abundance of his practiced glibness to address these associations.

John McCain has more than a passing interest in Soros, which we reported in “John McCain cavorts with pal George $oros” in Jan. 2014.  Soros, according to WND, has been revving up McCain’s personal economy for over a dozen years!  As the intertwining becomes clearer, it’s no mistake that McCain has been complimentary regarding GOP establishment pick Jeb Bush‘s potential.

Here (must watch commercial first) Jeb Bush compares himself and his waning presidential campaign to John McCain, saying McCain won the Republican Primary even as his own campaign was faltering eight years ago. The crucial detail Bush omits is that winning the Primary is only half the battle.  It’s winning the General that matters. McCain’s short lived Primary victory ultimately gave us Barack Obama.

Marco Rubio, cut from the same cloth, is the slick-talking, pro-amnesty Gang of Eight member, who continues to join forces with John McCain. Most recently they aligned in bizarrely blaming Islamic terrorism on oppression.

Meanwhile, last night, just hours before the close of the third-quarter fundraising period, Ben Carson’s campaign announced he has raised more than $20 million during the last three months — doubling the $10.6 million he collected during the previous quarter.

The soft-spoken Christian neurosurgeon and political newcomer has converted rising polls numbers into hard cash. His aides said he has collected more than 600,000 donations since he launched his exploratory committee in early March. Carson has engaged average Americans, who are contributing to and fundraising for him. His campaign manager called Carson’s surge, “The new reality.”

Candidate donation solicitations speak McVolumes

September 30, 2015

Earth to candidates: We won’t be your “friend” unless you show conservative credentials

As the FEC deadline for the third fundraising quarter approaches tonight, political activists have been inundated with donation solicitations from candidates. There are the low-key requests and the fever pitched, agitated pleas — packing messages of doom unless the money rolls in.

The winner for employing the most desperate begging has to be Jeb!, who has had his wife, other family members and now his son trying to raise cash from the folks. His haughty sounding PAC, “Right to Rise,” speaks to his idea of expected ascendancy. The lobbyists are on board, but are getting edgy at his mostly single digit polling numbers.

George P., the Texas Land Commissioner and the latest Bush-in the-political-dynasty-wings, is begging on behalf of his seriously plunging dad. It won’t help. As SRAZ commenter, State Delegate so succinctly noted recently, Jeb is ready for the “political embalming fluid.” McCain has been complimentary regarding Jeb Bush‘s potential, which could account for his use of the word, ”Friends” in his solicitations.

Marco Rubio, the slick-talking, pro-amnesty Gang Of Eight member, who continues to join forces with John McCain in blaming Islamic terrorism on oppression, has a not-so-novel approach to his appeals for cash. Rubio addresses his prospective donors as “Friends.”

Why would any candidate seek to emulate this?

Donald Trump, able to self fund, is not imploring his followers for donations.

Dr. Ben Carson wisely addresses his supporters as “Fellow Conservatives,” as he talks about the dangers of political correctness which “prevent us from speaking honestly about our challenges, our differences and our culture.” This brain surgeon knows a thing or two about how the human mind functions.

He’s undoubtedly keenly aware few of us enjoy being so presumptuously addressed in McCain-speak.

LD 30 chair Gary Hirsch: I’m gonna win so I’m resigning

September 29, 2015

The LD 30 saga never ceases to amaze.  Frosty Taylor, editor of Republican Briefs, is the go-to source of the latest information — including the back story — regarding the special meeting called for Monday night in order to recall legislative district chairman Gary Hirsch.

Hirsch is viewed by many of the elected precinct committeemen as a John McCain operative and part of the very senior senator‘s bizarre payback scheme to cleanse the Arizona GOP of conservatives who supported McCain’s censure at the January 2014 state statutory meeting. That vote of censure passed 1,150 to 351.

On Sunday afternoon, in advance of his recall election, Hirsch submitted a letter of resignation to Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC) Chairman Tyler Bowyer. In that letter, Hirsch oddly boasted that he had the votes to save his chairmanship. His exact words state he had “secured the votes to win handily on Monday.”

In view of Hirsch’s resignation, the special meeting was officially cancelled.

AZ Republic’s skewed “viewpoints” expose bias

September 28, 2015

Newspaper makes no effort to provide balance

Sunday’s edition of the Arizona Republic is a classic, rife with examples of the leftward lurch that underscores the entire failing publication. For the untutored reader it would be easy to mistake the page topping headlines “Viewpoints Sunday” and “Opinions” as vehicles delivering a variety of vantage points. That is obviously not the case.

There’s the requisite piece of open borders blather from Linda Valdez, the resident amnesty doyenne.  An Our Turn article titled “Focus on the Future” is the joint effort of two notable educrats, Sybil Francis (wife of Arizona State University’s overpaid president Michael Crow) and Lattie Coor, who preceded Crow as ASU president. The duo seeks to exert liberal influence within the state’s educational structure and beyond.

The expected piece of Arpaio bashing is front and center. This one dripping with sarcasm aimed at the sheriff and his office. Letters to the editor? Most sound as though they were crafted by the ASU’s Cronkite journalism students who have risen to jobs for which they are unqualified, as seasoned staffers grab their retirement and run — before the dam finally breaks. 

Focusing on the Question of the Week, under AZ Talk, the skew is irrefutable.  The question, “If Trump wins the Republican primary can he win the White House? “ is answered by each of four selected respondents with the first word emboldened and preceding a short explanation. There are two “No” answers, one “Never” and one “Maybe“. Of the four only one is a registered Republican. Listed under their names are their jobs, presumably intended to convey credibility. Two are either former or current teachers, one is a sculptor’s assistant, and another is described as a “community enthusiast.” 

Phil Boas, son-in-law of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the director of the Arizona Republic’s editorial pages. That means he oversees the constant barrage against his wife’s father and the grandfather of his kids. It’s a good bet he also has at least some authority over the type of questions asked and the selection of those who respond —  typically in lockstep — with the newspaper‘s bent. Conservatives should consider giving this guy a call and volunteering to provide their perspective on issues concerning us all. Phil Boas can be reached at 602-444-8292. No doubt he’d like to hear from you.
