Dying AZ Republic draws life trying to slay US Rep. Paul Gosar

Draculesque newspaper sustained by drawing conservative blood 

U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-CD-4) is an unapologetic conservative. As a dentist, his specialty was teeth, but as a congressman, he’s had to learn about fangs.

The feeble, Hillary-supporting Arizona Republic, hemorrhaging subscriptions and narrowly escaping yet another hostile takeover, will fall on its sword promoting an anti-Trump, open borders, restrictions on Second Amendment rights and abortion-on-demand agenda as it insults its few remaining readers.

As it gasps its last breaths, the newspaper now has Paul Gosar in its cross-hairs. Like Bram Stoker‘s Dracula, it sustains itself by feeding on blood. Laurie Roberts, the former sob saga columnist has been shuffled into the conservative slayer position. The emaciated, radically left newspaper got a life enhancing transfusion when it oversaw the election of Kyrsten Sinema to the U.S. Senate and five of our nine congressional seats shift to the Dem camp. Republicans David Schweikert (CD-6) and Debbie Lesko (CD-8) also need our support, as the left is determined to turn the red state of Arizona a deep blue.

Conservative Review lists Paul Gosar, along with Arizona CD-5 U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs, among the Top 25 Conservatives in the nation, awarding them both a Liberty Score “A” rating.

Longtime newspaper employees have been unceremoniously dumped, including Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Steve Benson, whose parent-company Gannett could no longer afford. The daily now functions with ASU Cronkite J School students working out of their cars, sans editors.

Gannett Co. Inc.’s stock has been in a downward freefall. Yahoo! Finance exposes the excessive salaries of the newspaper’s execs in the last paragraph of the article that refers to the “melting ice cube of a business.”

In January we postedAZ Republic: homeless vagrant on borrowed time,” detailing how the 10-story building and parking garage the Republic once called home has been sold, with a lease back arrangement from the real estate company that purchased the newspaper’s properties — obviously not the model of success.

Unable to ignore the inescapable truth that it is on life support, the AZ Republic is committed to taking down conservatives. Don’t let that happen. Get involved. Become a Precinct Committeeman. The 2020 election is right around the corner.

    Become a Precinct Committeemen…links at azgop.com/district-finder to find “your district or county committee leaders” leads to “The page you were looking for doesn’t exist.”

    I’ve tried to volunteer in the past in Yavapai County and never even rec’d the courtesy of a return phone call. What’s with that?

    Small wonder we’re losing seats and offices.

      Mike:
      The phone number for the State Republican Party is (602) 957-7770.
      They need to hear your concerns.
      I will tell you that the website is dramatically better under new state chairman Kelli Ward than either of the two previous McLiteweights.

    Keep away from the downing news paper. Like a downing person, if you are not careful, they will grab anything or anyone close by and take it down with them.

  3. Tucson GOP says:

    The link in the first sentence of this post lists all of the impressive ratings Congressman Paul Gosar has received.

    My regret is not living in his district so I could vote for him. I will send him a check when the election rolls around. Arizona needs more conservatives like Paul Gosar.

    The newspaper is irrelevant.

      I am in Rep. Gosar’s district and so happy. Hopefully we can get a good replacement in your precinct.

    We are fortunate to have strong conservatives in Congress representing AZ. That’s what rankles the libs at the newspaper.

    They won’t be there much longer, since the rent back of their building could be pulled without notice and the cost of getting out a hard copy each day, as pathetic as it is, is unsustainable. The AZ Repulsive can’t even get enough people to deliver the paper to homes since the routes have shriveled and it takes much longer to cover a zone. It’s just a matter of time before it joins this list.
    More than 1 in 5 local newspapers have closed since 2004.

      The unalterable fact is that the aptly nicknamed Arizona Repulsive has done this to itself. Journalists are not evident at the agenda laden rag passing itself off as a newspaper. It’s actually sad to see this happen, but newspapers have done it to themselves. All but a few of the national press endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2006. Subscriptions plummeted as a result, which was certainly the case at the AZ Repulsive. Few of the lost subscribers have returned. The paper has shrunken in size and the content is predictable, yet I understand the price has escalated. The Gannett honchos get their inflated salaries nonetheless.They are bleeding a lifeless form. The death of newspapers should be placed squarely on the shoulders of the leftists, who have unceremoniously jettisoned their own base.

  5. Frankly Speaking says:

    Congressman Paul Gosar’s district is a “tribute” to gerrymandering. It goes from the Arizona/Utah border on the North nearly to Mexico on the West.

    Can somewhat tell me what the connection between these communities could possibly be? This is a farce!

  6. Saguaro Sam says:

    If only the AZ rag would do some investigative reporting.

    Like this:
    US Congressman Doug Collins, this week, released in PDF form the transcripts of several DOJ and FBI honchos regarding their testimonies on their involvement with the plans to destroy the Trump presidency.

    Of note is the transcript of the interview of Lowretta Lynch, who had the infamous Phoenix airport tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton on that June evening 3 years ago.

    Lynch’s testimony regarding that meeting was interesting.
    She describes the meeting as “bizarre”, and you’ll see why if you read just that part of the transcript.

    https://dougcollins.house.gov/sites/dougcollins.house.gov/files/Lynch%20Interview%2012-19-18.pdf
    (tarmac meeting Q&A begins on p.24.)

    The temp on that day in Phoenix was 108, some say 110, with the low temperature being 93. He was here to play golf. Right.

    (That the tarmac encounter was caught by a local reporter was not by accident.)
