Trump-hating AZ Republic focuses on “The Wall”

Many of us remember a John Hershey novel as required college reading. ‘The Wall,’ set in the WWII era was not a new publication, but the chilling account of the monstrous, dehumanizing evil of the Warsaw ghetto and the valiant efforts to escape the Nazi’s “final solution,” captured our attention.

The same title has been co-opted for an ongoing series in the Periódico de la República (Arizona Republic), long committed to amnesty for illegals and an open southern border.  Gannet, the parent company of the Republic and USA Today — which also owns  myriad other left-leaning publications — has  given this continuing, collaborative report daily Page One status.

The driving force behind the series is, of course, President Trump and his focus on border security, stemming from his campaign promise to build a wall. That issue resonated with American voters who ultimately put him in office. The Hillary Clinton-endorsing leftwing media, (scorecard under link) including the Arizona Republic, was stunned as the numbers came in on election night. This account by Dan Gainor details the shock, which he correctly assesses as the media’s ‘primal scream.’

The series offers a litany of reasons why the wall is a terrible idea. If one doesn’t appeal, there are plenty of others to choose from. Reader alert: Be aware the newspaper uses the terms “migrant,” “undocumented” and “immigrant” when referring to illegal aliens.

Although the report assures that illegal border crossings are down, it oddly claims deaths of “migrants” are on the rise invading  what it refers to as our “imaginary border.”

Fencing, we are told, may inhibit drug trafficking, but won’t stop it. Using that convoluted logic, an open border is the way to go. These are definitely the spirited entrepreneurs we should welcome into the United States.

Tribal members whose land abuts the border in some locations, are opposed to the wall because it may encroach on sacred ground. Since sacred land takes a back seat to tribal casino operations, opening secure gambling establishments in these spots should solve the problem.

Scare tactics include the claim that tomatoes may cost more — a problem easily remedied by growing your own.

An even more novel opposition to the wall centers on biologists’ concerns that jaguars (cats, not cars) may “become extinct in the U.S. without a connection to Mexico.”

A Coyote, the well-paid transporters of illegal aliens flooding the United States. says the price he charges illegals to cross the border fence from Mexicali, Mexico, to the U.S. has gone up as border security has increased, The ridiculous article’s conclusion? He’s “not worried about the border wall, the border wall will make him rich.”

The latest segment is titled, “Who will really pay for President Trump’s wall?” What the República fails to grasp is that the wall is not Trump’s. He was elected by Americans who desire the security provided by an impenetrable barrier.

In the Sunday edition of the newspaper — as though there is no other news affecting Arizona — the entire 12-page Valley and State section of the newspaper is devoted to coverage of “The Wall.”

A recent article was headlined, “Phoenix composting program is suffering from low participation.’ Help it get on its feet.  If you still subscribe, drop your newspapers in a collection bin.  Then call to cancel. Think of the exhilaration of starting your day without having your intelligence insulted.

    Liberals are doing all they can to set the agenda on the critical issue of border security. Providing security to the citizens of the United States should be regarded as a top priority. That’s what the Preamble to the Constitution lays out so clearly:

    “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

      America’s Founders could never have envisioned the lunacy we face today, where grossly overpaid NFL athletes refuse to stand for the national anthem and denigrate the liberties that provide them the extraordinary lives they are able to lead. If they are so unhappy, they ought to quit their jobs and leave this country.

    Hungary has now built a wall and illegal immigration is down by 99% Here’s the story and photos:

    China has a wall.
    Vatican City has a massive wall.
    Paul Ryan has a wall.

    There is an old saying that ‘fences make good neighbors’.
    So walls must be awesome neighbors.

    FYI on the NFL—-Here is a partial list of their sponsors:

    Fed Ex
    Anheuser Busch
    Frito Lay
    Papa Johns PIzza
    Dannon Yogurt and Ice Cream
    Quaker Cereal
    Proctor & Gamble
    Bridgestone Tires
    Serius XM satellite radio
    Campbells Soup
    Under Armour clothing/other products
    Castrol Oil
    Courtyard by Marriott

    Just recently the MSM was in a major congratulatory mode.
    Seems that NFL player Anthony Cromartie (Jets?) just witnessed the birth of his FOURTEENTH CHILD. Although he is currently married, he has children by several different baby-mamas, with many of the children sharing the same birth year.
    Yeah, he’s a role model.

      Wow! I’m not sure which of this boatload of excellent information to respond to, or how, in the brief time I have right now. For the moment, I’ll have to add my appreciation for the “good fences make good neighbors” reminder. A wall is even better. Israel has benefited from the one they constructed out of necessity. We are also in dire straits with illegals being responsible for vehicular carnage, widescale criminality (check the names of defendants in the Arizona County Courthouses) and drugs that are dooming the lives of American kids. The promises of a wall and tax reform were the primary reasons why I voted for Donald Trump. The nomination of Justice Neil Gorsuch made me certain I made the right decision.

      • Saguaro Sam says:

        I’m aware of the vehicular carnage–not from courthouse dockets–but from the people who I have to put back together.

        It often gives me pause when the perp, who is almost always high on one or more substance, spends a few hours in observation and might get a few stitches, and then scurries off to disappear from the long arm of the law until the next time.

        Meanwhile, the victims often sustain life threatening and even life altering injuries.
        And there are no groups of pushy activists pounding the door down to advocate or protect the innocent victims.

      One of the largest Anheuser Busch distributorships in the entire country is owned by Hensley heiress Cindy Lou Hensley McCain. I suspect she and her vile husband think disrespecting the National Anthem and flag are just fine since John McCain is so fond of free speech, regardless of how it’s configured. He once called Cindy a trollop and c**t in front of staffers and reporters.
