When is “headline news” NOT news?

When you see it in “La República!”

The Periódico de la República de Arizona’s political writer Dan Nowicki must be angling for a gig at Wikipedia after the lights dim at the newspaper. How else to explain his lead item today, passed along without even a mention of the obvious?

Nowicki details the “split” between Señor Juan McAmnesty and Sheriff Strangelove of Pinal County over the latest plan to open our nation’s border, waste more money, and imperil our national security.

The Pinal lawman, safely re-elected despite his dalliance with an illegal alien, now opposes Sen. McCain’s legislation.

Sheriff Babeu testified before the House Judiciary Committee last week, urging the rejection of McCain and Flake’s “Gang of 8″ bill being debated in the Senate. Babeu says it doesn’t do enough to secure the border — advocating for an alternative House plan that focuses on law enforcement and gives more authority to local police.

Memo to Nowicki: You’re doing just fine in your audition for Wikipedia. But if you plan to stay at  the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic), it would be beneficial to learn the Spanish word for “hypocrisy.”

We gift you with it here: h-i-p-o-c-r-e-s-í-a.

 For a memory refresher, here’s Babeu before their break up, giving aid and comfort to McCain during the 2010 campaign — telling the phony border hawk and worried candidate, “Senator, you’re one of us.”

    I remember John McCain talking about illegals and avoiding the word “amnesty” like the plague. He actually said we need to “regularize their status.”

    How’s THAT for doublespeak?

      State Delegate, He got the word “regularize” from Jeff Flake. That is the word he used in the STRIVE legislation that he co-sponsored in the house with Luis Guiterrez. I asked Jeff Flake a question once at a precinct meeting and I used that word “regularize”. I did it on purpose. In his reply to my question (which he never answered) he mocked my use of the word “regularize” and said well you can call it whatever you like. I found that to be ironic since that is the exact word he used in his amnesty legislation. They can switch it up all they want but when we do they ridicule us.

    What a joke. Nowicki’s entire career has focused on McCain. He follows him around and licks his butt like a puppy. As to Babeu, he woke up to the fact that he was being used by McAmnesty. I still find that “Senator, you’re one of us” line a bit confusing in view of what “us” might involve. In this triangle, was Babeu trying to push Lindsey Graham(nesty) to the curb?

    The Arizona Republic newspaper is not worth a nanosecond of my time. What those liberals write doesn’t concern me. I believe in personal responsibility, traditional marriage, the value of life, and Constitutionally defined freedoms — including the protections afforded us all in the Bill of Rights and each and every Amendment.
    The newspaper promotes restrictions on our liberties, abortion on demand, Obamacare, amnesty for illegal alien invaders, increased taxes, homosexuality, restrictions of our Second Amendment rights and benefits for all — funded by those of us who work hard to provide for ourselves and our families. Our paths don’t cross on any matters of importance. Why would I care what those people have to say? I have not voted for John McCain in years and ave no intention of doing so again.
