Irresponsible silence on measles link to illegal invasion & Update

April 30, 2019

Blame game denies the facts as tuberculosis and hepatitis are also spiraling out of control in border states

It’s been a quarter of a century since measles was eliminated as a public health concern in the United States. It is now back — with vengeance — and the virulent outbreak has nothing to do with the so-called “anti-vaxers.”

The disease initially resurfaced in the border states of Arizona and California, quickly spreading elsewhere. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) would have us believe it was spread by unvaccinated people in Amish communities in Ohio and Missouri or in a predominantly Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn, New York — odd choices since both religious groups are self-contained.

As of this week over 700 cases have been confirmed in 22 states.

The CDC states, “Measles is still common in many parts of the world including some countries in Europe, Asia, the Pacific, and Africa.”

Noticeably missing from the list are the Central American countries of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, or our immediate “neighbor to the south,” Mexico. These are the countries that are flooding the United States with impoverished, uneducated invaders, bringing young children — frequently not their own, but used as facilitators — as they caravan by the hundreds of thousands, overwhelming border agents. The agents, with limited space to house them, are releasing them into border states, from which they fan out across the U.S.

This study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association: Pediatrics in 2014 found that 88% of measles cases in the country “were internationally imported or epidemiologically or virologically linked to importation.”

Only adherents to political correctness, who blandly refer to the invaders as “migrants,” would silence the truth and rush to blame two American religious groups that principally stay to themselves.

Ahead of her time, lawyer, author, activist and Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly (died: 2016) wrote, “Importing Third World Diseases,” in 2005.  Her ability to predict the future relating to the resurgence of previously eradicated diseases or introduction of new infectious scourges was uncanny. This is an important column that will add to your knowledge bank. Her impressive bio can be read here.

Conservative Review ran this report today detailing the thousands of illegals entering the United States with such highly contagious diseases as tuberculosis. The problem is real and it is urgent. We need the army at the southern border.

Border Patrol releasing thousands who were exposed to diseases like tuberculosis

The open-border supporting local newspaper headlines the rise in hepatitis cases. So far in 2019, there have been 212 cases in Arizona, which is higher than any yearly statewide total in more than a decade. State health officials expect that number to rise.

An outbreak of the viral liver disease began in November in the Tucson area and has spread to Maricopa County.

Never mentioning illegals in the coverage, the newspaper states,
“the cases are primarily among homeless and near-homeless individuals, as well as people who use illicit drugs.”

Pima County Health Department’s Deputy Director Paula Mandel is quoted as saying, “Hepatitis A is often known as “the poop disease” because it is transmitted through feces and can be easily spread when people do not have access to good hygiene and do not wash their hands after using the restroom. It’s a fecal-oral route,” Mandel said. “It takes such minute amounts.” Since Nov. 21, there have been 161 hepatitis A cases reported in Pima County. In comparison, Pima County had just five cases in all of 2017, It can also spread through contaminated food and water. People living on the streets and in homeless camps are particularly vulnerable.

San Diego, where illegals continue to breach the border, is also experiencing high rates of the highly contagious, potentially deadly infectious liver disease.

Newsweek surprisingly gets it right on leftist bias

April 29, 2019

Calls out anti-religious hate from “the left”

Left-leaning Newsweek magazine reports on Sunday’s ‘Fox & Friends,’ featuring a discussion on the escalation of horrific crimes at houses of worship, including Christian churches, mosques and synagogues. The panelists, Highland Park, Illinois, Rabbi Evan Moffic and Muslim scholar and physician Qanta Ahmed linked the vicious rhetoric of U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and her use of anti-Semitic stereotypes to a rise in anti-Jewish attacks in the U.S.

Moffic said, “I think we just simply have to be aware of these awful stereotypes about Jews. When Ilhan Omar said, “It’s all about the Benjamins, baby,” and she said Israel has “hypnotized the world,” she’s drawing on these stereotypes that have murdered millions of people in the Holocaust, which just happened 75 years ago…it’s exactly because of that rhetoric. He added, “Jews have never felt more vulnerable in the United States.”

Of particular interest is the panelists warned Americans that anti-religious persecution, particularly from “the left,” is on the rise.

This AP list of over a dozen murderous acts committed in houses of worship — which should be hallowed sanctuaries — dating from 2012.  It doesn’t include the senseless depravity that occurred at a San Diego-area synagogue on Saturday, the last day of Passover. One woman, standing to shield the rabbi, was murdered and the rabbi, along with an 8-year-old girl and her uncle, visiting from Israel, were wounded. 

The shooter John Earnest, 19, has also been linked to a recent arson blaze at a nearby mosque.

Saturday’s rampage could have been much worse. An off duty U.S. Border Patrol agent, providing security, is a member of the synagogue, and was attending the service when gunfire erupted. He was one of two men who rushed Earnest. They are being hailed as heroes for curtailing the attack.


Pope Francis fund$ caravans of illegals invading U.S.

April 28, 2019

It’s Sunday…a fitting day for news dealing with religion. What we are presenting, however, is a perversion of being of good faith, the interjection of a religious leader who lives in his own fortress, surrounded by massive, 50-foot tall, ten-feet thick towering walls and protected by his own army, interfering in U.S. border policies. If you guessed Pope Francis, who resides in Vatican City, protected by Swiss Army guards, you win the gold star.

The Vatican News service boasts that the pope —- an elitist Marxist who lives surrounded by opulence —- is spending some of the ample cash at his disposal on financing the caravans of illegal aliens from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras into the United States. The invaders are currently being dumped in Tucson, thanks to the Argentine Pope.

A hypocrite who judges what’s in the heart of others, Francis ridiculed President Trump using these words, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.” Francis’ own wall remains solid and impenetrable.

He displayed blatant disrespect to America previously when he was invited to address a joint session of congress in 2015, but stopped off first to chat in Spanish with the Communist Castro brothers, Fidel (died 2016) and Raul. They are the Russian-aligned duo responsible for the substandard living conditions the repressed residents of Cuba have endured since 1959 in the once bustling tourist mecca, 90 miles off the southern Florida coast. 

Francis has repeatedly insulted President Trump and attempted to interject himself into our elections. Though America is the most generous of all nations, he frequently chastises us on the hot-button issues that drive the left: consumerism and global warming.

Worst of all, he is responsible for concealing the rampant sexual abuse in the church until he was forced to hold a 4-day “summit,” where he apologized for the systemic perversion, calling the same clergy he protected, “instruments of Satan.”

He initially issued a lame apology, telling victims the Vatican “felt shame and sorrow” and “the pope is on your side.”

This 2018 news report includes information regarding the Grand Jury report of ’horrific” ongoing child sexual abuse in the Pennsylvania diocese alone. The Pennsylvania Attorney General said the report showed a “systematic cover up by senior church officials in Pennsylvania and at the Vatican.”

It’s time for Francis to get the same treatment given to Pope Benedict XVI — a righteous man who did not deserve to be banished, never to be seen or heard of again. His reported “resignation” was the first of its kind in nearly 600 years.


Pres. Trump and economy soar & NRA Update

April 27, 2019

NRA meeting showcases Pres. Trump and V.P. Pence

Friday was a booming day for the stock market, as both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite indexes closed at record highs. The economy, exceeding expectations, grew at a 3.2% annual rate in the first quarter. 

It was also a winning day for President Trump, as he and Vice President Mike Pence rallied Second Amendment supporters at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum / Convention held this year in Indianapolis, Indiana, where they were repeatedly greeted with cheers from the massive crowd. Billed as “America’s largest freedom celebration,” the convention draws tens of thousands of firearm enthusiasts each year.

Trump used the occasion to announce the withdrawal of the U.S. signature from the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty, in response to concerns from gun owners that it could impinge on Americans’ Second Amendment rights. It was signed in 2013 by Barack Obama, but never ratified.

“Under my administration we will never surrender American sovereignty to anyone, we will never allow foreign bureaucrats to trample on your Second Amendment freedom and that is why my administration will never ratify the U.N. trade treaty,” President Trump unequivocally stated.

Among the speakers addressing the gathering was U.S. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), who survived a June 2017 assassination attempt on the lives of Republican members and staffers practicing for the annual ‘Congressional Baseball Game for Charity,’ scheduled for the following day. Before opening fire, in the vicious act that nearly killed Congressman Scalise, the left-wing assailant specifically asked if it was the Republican team practicing. Watch Steve Scalise’s speech here.

Like President Ronald Reagan, who was shot and seriously wounded along with press secretary James Brady, a Secret Service Officer, and a D.C. Police Officer, Rep. Scalise continues to defend our constitutionally protected Second Amendment freedoms.

Scalise has said the experience reinforced his support for gun rights. “I was a strong supporter of the Second Amendment before the shooting,” he said, “and frankly, as ardent as ever after the shooting in part because I was saved by people who had guns.

“They saved my life. But they also saved the lives of every other member. There were over a dozen members of Congress and staffers who would have been executed. That was the intention of the shooter.”

Defend Freedom. Join the NRA today.

Fox News reports Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president and public face of the National Rifle Association, alleges the organization’s board president, Oliver North, is trying to extort him into stepping down.

This is the 3-page letter Wayne LaPierre sent to the Members of the NRA Board.

For longtime members of the Second Amendment protection organization, LaPierre is the organization. We wish him well in this unfortunate internecine feud.


Janet Napolitano drops “Big Sis” guise, becomes “Big Bro”*

April 26, 2019

Issues directive requiring California universities to quarantine students and staff unable to prove they were vaccinated against measles

Janet Napolitano —- formerly Arizona’s radically left-wing governor who took a midterm hike to ineffectively head the Department of Homeland Security for Barack Obama —- is currently the president of the University of California system. 

Longtime Arizonans rate her as the undisputed worst governor in memory. Wielding her veto pen in a manic rage over bills passed through the GOP controlled state legislature, she earned the nickname “J-No.”

Lax leftist Napolitano, bonded to an open border policy, was renowned for her dismissively blasé retort when frustrated Arizonans pleaded for border security: “Show me a 50-foot fence, and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder.”

Called “Big Sis,” for her ham-handed tactcs, Napolitano has now fully morphed into “Big Bro,” mandating that California universities quarantine students and staff who are unable to prove they were vaccinated against measles. CBS 2 Los Angeles carries the full report.

Years preceding the shameful attempts to keep Judge Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, Napolitano was integral to the attempt to defame Clarence Thomas as he was put through a brutal hearing prior to his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court nearly three decades ago.  A black, conservative justice was more than the left could tolerate. Napolitano represented Anita Hill, who suddenly recalled offensive comments she attributed to Thomas —- though she inexplicably continued to follow Thomas, who vigorously denied her charges, from job to job.

It’s a sure bet there are few who miss “Big Bro/J-No” but for those who have a hankering to see her, she has authored a book targeting President Trump as a bigot for enacting national security measures. She will be reviewing it and signing copies next month for a mere $45 fee.

Using these printable coupons, treat yourself and take a few guests out to dinner at Red Lobster for the same amount.  Crab or lobsters and shrimp, even with their antenna intact, are easier on the eyes than Janet Napolitano any day of the week.

Here she is with her gal-pal Kyrsten Sinema out for a night on the town a few years ago.

*“Big Brother is watching you,” was the warning that appears on posters throughout Oceania, the fictional dictatorship described by George Orwell in his book titled, “1984.”


AZ educrat Pres. Joe Thomas instructs in “Thugocracy”

April 25, 2019

Educating students takes back seat to educrat’s intimidation agenda

Breitbart exposesvia video — the ruthlessness and intimidation techniques advocated by Arizona Education Association (AEA) president Joe Thomas. He was caught instructing teachers who act as union liaisons in their schools how to intimidate any colleagues who refuse to participate in future walkouts planned by #RedsforEd at the State Capitol in Phoenix.

The Arizona Daily Independent initially uncovered the video instructing teachers in bullying of their colleagues.

Scroll through the notoriously left-wing Teachers Unions* site funded to the tune of $millions by dues paying teachers. Bear in mind,  the “underpaid” teachers, who work 81/2 months a year, are able to support the far left unions which almost exclusively support liberal candidates and causes.

In May 2018, Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), a position reportedly paying over $500,000 yearly, came to Phoenix to rally the acquiescent teachers against the 20% pay increase/bribe foolishly offered by Gov. Doug Ducey.

Weingarten does double duty as a Democrat operative who gave impassioned speeches introducing Dem presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at both AFT’s 2016 convention and the Democrat’s national convention.

During the strike Joe Thomas, president of the Arizona Education Association (AEA) was front and center issuing statements about the need for more money for the teachers — who care so much for their students that last year they abandoned 840,000 of them for over a week in violation of their contractual agreements.

Paid by the union, Joe Thomas received in excess of $400,000 in compensation each year from 2011 through 2016. That swank sum has no doubt been upgraded in the past three years. Thomas and his teacher wife are Democrats. Following the Nov. 2018 General Election, we posted,If you like AZ’s leftist election results, thank a teacher.”

In January SRAZ posted, Educrat thugs promise “Armageddon,” as AEA Pres. Joe Thomas threatened another strike. We described Arizona teachers, who received 20% pay increases —- and are now demanding more —- as resembling emboldened thugs pulling a heist.

Passage of ballot propositions — 301 in 2000 increasing the state sales tax and 123 in 2016 a grab from the state land trust — guaranteed more money for education, which apparently is never enough. School districts routinely hold budget overrides and bond elections to “get more money into the classroom”— eduspeak for bolstering teacher’s salaries. A major premise of passing the Arizona Lottery in 1980 was that money from ticket sales would fund schools.

Falling prey to the teacher’s demands was foolishness personified. It’s like attempting to bribe a mobster. No amount will ever be enough.

Who cares what Mega McCain thinks?

April 24, 2019

It’s impossible to miss the impending demise of the once well-read and dependable Arizona Republic newspaper. It hasn’t been reliable since Eugene and Nina Pulliam were the conservative publishers, in the pre-Gannett glory days. News was written by reporters, not student interns lacking editors. Journalists were regarded as trustworthy, and like Clark Kent, who spent time as a reporter at the Daily Planet, their clear eyed integrity was unquestioned.

What a novel concept. 

Today’s newspaper is emaciated and filled with leftist spew.  Seasoned reporters and editors have taken early retirement, had their contracts bought out or been axed, as was the case recently with Pulitzer-prize winning cartoonist Steve Benson, who rose to prominence when he held a conservative perspective later degrading to brazen Trump hatred.

Sappy columnists have morphed into bomb throwers for the anti-Trump and open border agenda. Ditto the former Libertarian minded columnist who has veered into Liberal-land for job security.

Tuesday’s edition was so lightweight in both heft and content, that only the word “pathetic” is appropriately descriptive. In an interesting placement choice, an impending LGBT rights case to be heard in the fall before the U.S. Supreme Court is given front page prominence, though high arsenic levels detected in various identified bottled water brands is relegated to page 9. The entire news section, national, international and local, rated 14 pages sparsely tucked in among ads. Sports took 8 pages, including obituaries — which now abut athletic scores. ‘Things to do,’ also a section, is a hodgepodge including movie listings, hiking trails, restaurant reviews, comics, puzzles and Dear Abby. Five full pages are devoted to hearing aid advertisements, since the remaining reader base consists of senior citizens.

Mega McCain has somehow become newsworthy. One headline roars, “Meghan McCain: Bernie Sanders not fit to lead.” Another, “I still can’t go back home to Arizona,” is a commentary on her inability to cope with father’s 2018 death.

She was controlled enough to ensure that she insulted purposely uninvited President Trump and his family during her anger-laced eulogies at three separate, week-long funerals.  Among the A-Listers were scandal-plagued Bill and Hillary Clinton and the part-time president and full-time vacationer and golfer, Barack Obama, who first denied and then admitted delivering $1.7 billion in cash payments to Iran in 2016. For those with short memories, Iran is the country that routinely assembles screaming mobs yelling, “Death to America!”

Coarse, tattooed and untalented, Mega McCain has briefly held a succession of television gigs only because of her recognizable last name. Her opinions influence no thinking American, making her the ideal person for the failing newspaper to cover.

Michelle Malkin provided an exemplary review in her column reprinted here in the Philadelphia Inquirer, ‘Vulgar exercises in self-indulgence’: Aretha Franklin, John McCain funerals showed how not to depart with dignity.

Malkin succinctly summed up the tastelessness using these words, “graveyard narcissism intertwined with crass partisanship.”
