Selling out is Robert Robb’s job security

In a recent commentary, Robert Robb, the libertarian leaning, once sole deviant opinion writer among the braying gaggle of leftists at Arizona’s newspaper of record, leapt like a lemming off the extremist cliff. His precipice plunge was titled, “Elizabeth Warren is right: The Electoral College has got to go.”

He’s lost his way down the murky liberal alley more frequently as former colleagues have increasingly been replaced with ASU Cronkite Journalism students, who have neither editors nor offices. In September 2018, we wrote,AZ Republic’s Robb grovels, earns his pay on AZ Senate race,”

In response to the virulent anti-Trump spew his superiors routinely dole out, Robb’s recent submissive offering was titled, “Trump’s irresponsible budget.” Barack Obama was never the recipient of such an assault, though his spending eclipsed all previous presidents combined. It’s not difficult to imagine the meeting with editorial page editor Phil Boas, and the instructions being handed to Robb, with that pathetic commentary as the result.

Now Robb’s outdone himself, singing George Soros’ mantra of the National Popular Vote (NPV). His most recent opinion piece is titled….brace yourself ….“Elizabeth Warren is right: The Electoral College has got to go.”

Surely Robb is aware that this farce has become a front burner item for the Democrats. He’s no dummy, as demonstrated by his use of the word “fecund” (which we had to look up), as he described Democrat presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren. He is, however, all too willing to sing for his supper.

As if by providence, SRAZ wrote a post on the very topic last Friday, taking a much different view than the skew offered by Robert Robb. We place more value on our Nation’s Founders and our U.S. Constitution than in either Socialist billionaire George Soros or Elizabeth Warren. Our piece is headlined, “Desperate Dems embrace NPV absurdity.”

Soros wants to hijack our presidential elections allowing a few highly populated and left-leaning states such as California, New Jersey, New York and Illinois to have a disproportionate influence in our elections. He has also been pouring $millions into under-the-radar campaigns influencing local district attorney races in numerous states to reconfigure the American justice system to his liking, as reported by POLITICO.

NPV is partnered with FairVote, a project of the Soros-funded Center for Voting and Democracy. Along with advocating for the flawed national popular vote for president, it also sets as a goal lowering the voting age to 16.

Robert Robb should know that selling one’s soul to the left is the ultimate degradation. Conservatives no longer have high expectations of him, but he should have them for himself.

    For the sake of our own sanity, Liberals like Robert Robb have used the same ruse to run as a “Libertarian, to get elected in a diverse and leftist growing constituency.

    John McCain was an infamous democrat who also ran as a “Conservative” or “Repub” for years, yet he voted consistently like a Dem. It explains the disappointment when he voted against the will of the voters time after time.

    The “Libertarian” party was taken over by leftists years ago. Just listen to their SJW, inclusive race-based politics. Vote conservative only when you have exhausted the leads in your own investigative process in determining the record of the candidate of your choice.

    Alas, fecundity guarantees neither cogency nor veracity.

    Excellent post, SRAZ. Few people actually read the drivel from the AZ Republic, so it’s good to be enlightened as to how low the paper has sunken. In the days preceding instant news, my folks subscribed to the Republic in the morning and the Phoenix Gazette in the afternoon. They were “sister” publications published by Eugene Pulliam and were decent news sources, even leaning right! I delivered the Gazette after school for spending money.

    It sounds like Robert Robb has no objections to pimping for the left. I wonder if he thinks past his next pay check and what endorsing Pocahontas’ scheme could mean for the future of our county.

  4. Braveheart says:

    I notice SRAZ didn’t link to Robb’s declaration that Elizabeth Warren is right. I appreciate the fact that there are boundaries that are too despicable to cross. This falls into that category.

    The senior citizen neighbors across the street have finally cancelled their subscription, making our cul-de-sac of 10 homes an Arizona Republic free zone! We occasionally have block parties and good naturedly discuss politics, so I know that none of the neighbors digitally subscribe either. My wife says we live in a “Smart Zone.”

    • Mike says:

      I’d love to see my neighborhood become Repugnant-Free. As it is the local batty old delivery lady has to whiz through each street to throw out an average of one lone copy per block to a libtard holdout, leaving me to dodge her kamikaze driving during my morning runs.

    Couldn’t he agree with someone besides Elizabeth Warren, who is a known liar?

    She lied for years and then doubled-down on her lie.
    Then had to admit she lied.

    Elizabeth Warren was given opportunities; education, and jobs because she knowingly and intentionally lied.

    Meanwhile,
    Bibi Netanyahu is in DC, meeting with President Trump.
    Bibi’s in trouble ahead of their election in Israel.
    Not really in control.

    Why do So Many members of Congress hold dual citizenship with Israel? More than 50, less than 100.
    We should ask Gabby.

    • Arizona Conservative Guy says:

      You’ve been putting this untruth out along with many other cryptic messages which only you are privy to but you keep warning us that they will be revealed and when they are, we’ll “puke.”

      I’m ready to puke with your not-so-veiled anti-Semitism. You’re beginning to remind me of Rep. Ilhan Omar, who shares your same mindset. Jewish members of the U.S. House and Senate do not have dual citizenship with Israel.

      This is but one source that follows your offensive bent to its logical conclusion:

      • Fed Up says:

        Thank you for calling Saguaro Sam out on this. My jaw clenches whenever I read one of his offensive comments on Jewish dual citizenship. It’s a classic piece of BS that is patently false. I’ve wondered why SRAZ allows them to stay up.

        In his distorted view, is it only members of congress who he believes have questionable allegiance to the United States or all Jews? My politically conservative and patriotic daughter-in-law is Jewish. My son converted to the faith that Jesus lived his entire life as a faithful adherent of. My grand kids are Jewish. They are all Americans and the idea of any of them holding dual citizenship is preposterous.

    • Observer says:

      This is a repulsive old canard worthy of Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda:
      “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

      Do you limit your belief in dual citizenship to Jewish members of the U.S. House and Senate or extend it to all American Jews?

  6. Michael Schmitz says:

    The end of the Electoral College would be the end of the Republic. (The country, not the propaganda publication.) Robb is boot licking with such an asinine assertion.

    • jake sez says:

      Since the qualifications to vote in each state is determined by that state, it would be quite easy for a particular state to open their voting to any all people who wish to vote. California may allow all individuals legal or not to right to vote. They could allow mail in ballot from all of Central American or even from far away as China. The electoral collage is the only thing that keeps this down to some extent by only allowing a state to submit a set number of vote to the college.

  7. State Committeeman says:

    Phony conservative William Kristol was such a virulent Trump hater that his once popular Weekly Standard magazine folded due to lost subscriptions over his anti-Trump stance. My wife and I were longtime subscribers who began throwing the weekly editions in the garbage before bringing the mail in the house. Obviously we were not alone in letting our subscription lapse. The same thing is happening with the Trump hating Arizona Republic. Robert Robb is the local Bill Kristol.

  8. Nancy Russell Plencner says:

    It has been weeks since I last read the Republic, and cannot say I have missed anything! Enjoy the WSJ where there is actually a world to read of. Rob got his start at the Phoenix Chamber and has not strayed too far from those Chamber roots of “we stand for nothing and have to accommodate everyone”. For years I’ve contended he should be teaching English at some quirky little California based college.
