AZ Dem chair Foolisha Rotellini accuses Pres. of ISIS affiliation

October 31, 2019

Arizona Democrat Party chair Felecia Rotellini put her visceral partisanship and abysmal lack of knowledge on display (video: reporter Ryan Saavedra’s tweet*) during a panel discussion at the recent, “We the Voters Conference.” The Phoenix event was hosted by the Citizens Clean Elections Commission.

Rotellini, who obviously doesn’t watch FOX News, claimed President Trump, who earlier authorized the Syrian raid resulting in the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi “has aligned himself with ISIS.” When U.S. forces were closing in on him, the world’s most wanted man who led a movement that prided itself on mass murders, beheadings and indiscriminate violence, cowardly detonated a suicide vest intentionally killing himself and three of his own children.

Dr. Kelli Ward, AZ GOP chair, didn’t let Rotellini’s foolish, but intentional slur go without a response. 

“It is extremely disconcerting to hear the top Democrat in Arizona slander and malign an innocent person for being aligned with the world’s most evil terrorists, let alone the president of the United States,” Ward said.

“While fear-mongering from the left is expected up to a point, we have to draw the line somewhere if they’re going to refuse to police themselves. Baseless statements like those made by the chair of the Arizona Democrats are wildly irresponsible and not rooted in reality.”

The local newspaper reports that Matt Grodsky, spokesman for the Arizona Democrat Party attempted to run interference for the party chair via email saying, “It was a poor choice of words.”

He might have had better luck sending a copy of Louis Prima‘s rendition ofFelicia No Capicia.’ (Capicia = comprehend in Italian.)

Demonic Dems aim to doom Trump presidency

October 30, 2019

On the cusp of Halloween, Democrat congressional ghouls are lighting the fire under the impeachment caldron. The House Rules Committee will debate this contemptible 8-page resolution today to provide a “pathway forward” for the impeachment of President Trump.

When President Trump recently used the word “lynching” to describe this outrageous action against him, he was castigated for appropriating a term that one race now thinks it owns.

The word Holocaust has long been used to describe the Nazi’s systematic slaughter of 6 million Jews during WWII. In recent years has been appropriated to describe the legalized murders of pre-born human babies at the hands of abortionists since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. These figures are based on the numbers used by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, a division of Planned Parenthood of America.

In both instances, Holocaust describes gruesome, unconscionable deaths; the taking of innocent lives by those who considered them inconsequential.

President Trump is indeed being lynched by a ferocious mob, though they are wearing business suits instead of white hoods. They are assembled in congress rather than driving down back country roads after nightfall carrying torches to terrorize, torture and kill blacks. 

Yes. Words have meaning. President Trump has been maligned, demonized and colluded against since the day of his Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration. The left-wing Hillary-supporting media, congressional Democrats and Hollywood elites have dedicated themselves to defaming and conducting a witch hunt against him.

Earlier today, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) summed up the Democrat‘s actions stating:

“They have denied President Trump basic due process and are cutting his counsel out of the process in an unprecedented way. The House Democrats new resolution does not change any of that. The draft resolution that has been released does nothing of the sort. It falls way short, way short.” He added, “It does not confer on President Trump the most basic rights of due process or seemingly alter Chairman Schiff’s unfair process in the House Intelligence Committee in any way whatsoever.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), nearly 80, who has lost control to the radical “squad,” young enough to be her granddaughters, has back-pedaled on her lack of enthusiasm to impeach. Now she is moving forward with ferocious vigor.

U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), an extreme leftist partisan who has conducted closed door meetings with the single goal of removing the elected President of the United States, has bared his fangs in anticipation of the kangaroo court proceedings. Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs (R-CD5) exposed Schiff in this commentary.

The Bible instructs us to gird our loins for the upcoming battle.


Ex CIA Dir. John Brennan exposed as Russian dupe

October 29, 2019

Unparalleled abyss of Trump hatred underscores Dem’s sham impeachment frenzy

It’s a rarity for SRAZ to post another’s column in its entirety — even more so one containing a word in the title with which we had no prior familiarity.  But this one, though lengthy, is the exception.

HAKLUYT! – THE GUYS WHO TRIED TO TAKE DOWN TRUMP is a must read.

Author Howell Woltz is described as an American author living in Warsaw, Poland, whose work focuses on America’s system of justice and the negative effects of Progressivism on free nations and their people.

Woltz’ account dovetails with and updates, “John Brennan, Obama’s Head of the Innuendo Community,” by George Neumayr which appeared in the American Spectator in March of 2018, and used this memorable example in its exposé:

“One of the richest ironies in this Russian farce is the extent to which Brennan colluded with foreigners to smear Trump, collusion that made Brennan the biggest and easiest dupe for Russian disinformation. Brennan, after all, instigated the Obama administration’s Trump-Russia investigation on the basis of “tips” from Estonian spies, British spies, and other assorted “intelligence counterparts.” That wasn’t solid intelligence but fragments of innuendo, planted at least in part by gleeful Russians…to upend the American political system.”

We are currently witnessing an unprecedented debacle, as congressional leftists still in disbelief over scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton’s massive loss, are willing to lie, defame and collude, as they work double time to invalidate the vote of the American people who overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump for President. 


A slippery solution for AZ’s failing students

October 28, 2019

Fail safe scheme falsely insures top-notch results

Earlier this month we covered the colossal testing failures being promoted by Arizona’s public schools. The bottom line is that Arizona students are doing even worse on tests than their previously low scores. More than half who took the tests failed — for the FIFTH year in a row!

This marks the first year high schools were given the ability to opt out of participating in this specific assessment, which no doubt thrilled the school administrators, since school funding is based in part on student proficiency in basic skills. Now some schools are resorting to trickery to boost scores, giving those who earn a “B,” for example, a bright shiny “A,” if they were deemed “proficient.”

But wait…there’s more! The latest educrat mumbo-jumble is based on the fact that a student’s ACT scores can determine students’ chances of being accepted into college, class placement, or even access scholarships. The added bonus is students have an opportunity to finagle their scores. As of September 2020, students who have taken the ACT test will have the option to retake individual sections of the test instead of the entire exam. Those who take the test more than once will be given an ACT “superscore” that averages their highest possible ACT composite score. These perks come on the heels of the ability to “pre-test.”

 It’s not difficult to see where this is going. Being a “super scorer” is not an indication of brilliance, unless brilliance is determined by the ability to pre-test, take and retake the test and use the highest score across all attempts to maximize the submitted score. 

What better training for the real world where there are rarely opportunities for do-overs — and certainly not chances to use false cumulative scores? In addition, beginning September 2020, students will have the opportunity to take the ACT online during national test dates, guaranteeing there will be no failures.

ACT initially came into being in the 1950s when schools actually taught. At that time, the acronym stood for American College Testing. Today, ACT stands for nothing. It is a registered trademarked company, headquartered in Iowa with regional offices across the United States and international locations.

Education has become a big business, with undisguised leftist leanings,* that routinely produces a shoddy product — pathetically under-educated American students. Teachers, its first line marketers, now routinely go on strike as we witnessed in Arizona. This model would never survive in a truly competitive environment where outcomes matter.

Campus mobs hijack free speech, stifle 1st Amendment

October 27, 2019

In light of increasing student disruptions while invited expert speakers attempt to discuss pertinent issues, Jonathan Butcher, a Senior Fellow at the Goldwater Institute, addresses the issue of demonstrators intent on canceling events by shouting down an invited guest and how school administrators should deal with those who apply the “heckler’s veto.” He writes, “School leaders must explain that this behavior is unacceptable before the events take place. Incorporating discussions about the importance of free speech into freshman orientation and adding the school’s commitment to free inquiry to student handbooks.”

The fact that this lack of respect for the First Amendment rights to which Americans are constitutionally entitled takes place on university campuses should strike fear in the hearts of us all — regardless of our political bent.

Recent incidents where mob rule has taken place include the University of Pennsylvania, which shut down an event Wednesday on immigrant detention and deportation after student protesters demonstrated against retired ICE Director Tom Homan’s appearance on the panel.

Georgetown University law school — of all places — was recently the site of another such disruption. Butcher’s opinion piece, “Free speech jeopardized on college campuses,” printed this past week in The Detroit News is definitely worth reading.

This student derision for opinions other than their own has escalated. In December 2009, SRAZ posted,How liberals at ASU honor the First Amendment and treat guests,” which includes a video of then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, an invited guest, being heckled off the stage at a forum at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism.

If budding journalists and law students, who should be more aware of our enshrined freedoms than most, hold the First Amendment in contempt, what hope is there for our nation’s future?

This abhorrent trend is the direct result of leftist educrats propagandizing on the hot button issues of man-caused (rather than cyclical) climate change, recycling, identity politics, pushing gender-neutral pronouns and transgenderism, while giving short shrift to imperative studies encompassing American History, the history Western Civilization and our enviable U.S. Constitution, that provides freedoms others can only dream of attaining. 


Bigotry, anti-GOP bias reign at AZ Republic

October 26, 2019

Hatred masquerades as journalism

Arizonans foolish enough to subscribe to the shriveling yet still virulently leftist agendized Arizona Republic, know the drill.  Illegal aliens are routinely referred to as “undocumented immigrants” or “asylum-seeking migrants.” Reports about their invasion of the United States or crimes resulting in their arrest treat them with kid gloves.

The status of illegal criminals is no longer reported, since that could unfairly prejudice readers regarding their unlawful residency. Wrong-way freeway drivers who are responsible for havoc and death due to their intoxication and/or inability to read English language street signs have become routine. Reports of men engaging in sex with underage girls are increasingly frequent. Then there is the obnoxious reporting notion that only reporters with Hispanic surnames can report on Hispanic issues or defendants. That same flawed perspective doesn’t hold true with other ethnicities.

If the AZ Republic’s bias would be encapsulated, the name to file it under would be hard-core left-wing partisan EJ Montini.

His recent column refers to conservative members of Arizona’s congressional delegation who joined the larger protest of the injudicious secrecy surrounding the Democrats’ attempt to overturn, by way of impeachment, the 2016 presidential election won by Donald Trump. Marginal miscreant Montini calls elected U.S. Reps. Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar and Debbie Lesko “stooges…engaged in an ignorant, idiotic sit-in.”

The Hillary-endorsing newspaper, recently included in a buyout by a conglomerate, obviously agrees, since his obnoxiously infantile column was not excised.

Republicans didn’t support Barack Obama, who campaigned onfundamentally transforming the United States of America.Following his election, he embarked on a world-wide apology tour, deferentially bowing to Muslim royalsdespots and others. Making deals with the devil, he delivered $1.7 billion in cash to our enemy Iran — a rogue nation that has sworn to annihilate us.  Collusion?  Obama was caught on an open mic doing exactly that with the Russian President Dmitri Medvedev.

There were no calls from the right to impeach this duly elected, though clearly anti-American, president. We waited him out and ultimately elected President Donald J. Trump.

That same reliance on our Constitutional election process has no validity with the Democrats or leftist goons exemplified by EJ Montini.


Dem U.S. Rep. Katie Hill takes multi-tasking seriously & Update

October 25, 2019

Decadent hedonist, Katie Hill, who gave scant time to the duties she was elected to perform, claims her “conscience” demands impeachment

The U.K.‘s DailyMail.com* often displays an uncanny knack for in-depth reporting — even going so far as to teach us a new word: “throuple.” Its recent report features a series of revealing photos of first-term California Democrat Congresswoman Katie Hill, including a Nazi-era Iron Cross tattoo on her bikini line while holding a bong. 

California’s Mercury News initially reported that Hill, 32, denied rumors of an affair. Within hours that was followed by a report in National Review where she admitted the ‘Inappropriate’ relationship with a staffer…as the Ethics Committee launched a probe. In rapid succession, the Washington Examiner reported Hill paid her female lover $ thousands in consulting fees.

But there’s more. The married Hill, now in a divorce proceeding, is an admitted bi-sexual, who was also having a romance with her male legislative director. Hill’s husband was an active participant as part of a “throuple” with his busy wife and the female staffer.

Far left CNN gave cover to the “rising superstar,” who flipped the district blue, quoting her referring to the facts as “a political smear campaign orchestrated by her Republican opponents and [her] husband.”

Last month Hill released a statement, referring to her “duty to her conscience,” that said in part, “I strongly support the House of Representatives moving forward with impeachment proceedings –– it is what the Constitution, my constituents, and my conscience demands…I will vote to impeach the President.” She was endorsed by Barack Obama, who attended a fundraising event during her campaign.

Hill’s Congressional District 25, north of Los Angeles, includes thousands of fire ravaged acres, forcing evacuations of residents as wild fires continue to burn.

California Democrat Katie Hill is no longer a U.S. Representative. She announced her resignation Oct. 28, 2019.


Judicial Watch exposes dark alliance between UofA, ChiComs

October 24, 2019

In an impeccably researched and well-documented report, Judicial Watch reveals the troubling alliance between the publicly funded University of Arizona and Chinese Communists complete with hefty sums of cash changing hands.

The account, titled, “Public university gives Chinese Communists funding, exclusive rights to intellectual concepts, trademarks, inventions,” is stunning in its scope. Read the concise report here, being sure to access the substantiating links.

The University of Arizona (UofA) appears to have an affinity for Communism. In August 2018, SRAZ reported that radical leftist Noam Chomsky, then age 89, was hired for an outrageous salary of $750,000 a year. Chomsky, who supports Hezbollah and defends communist regimes, was brought in to teach his nefarious leftist brand of politics — on a part-time basis. Couple this contemptible giveaway with in-state tuition made accessible for illegal aliens, while our own Arizona students get slammed with increasingly high tuition and fees.

According to the ASU State Press, on May 2018 ASU’s leftwing President Michael Crow received a pay hike of $90,000 bringing his annual salary to $690,000. This outrageous sum does not include his bonuses and perks, including the $70,000 housing allowance for his 4550 sq. ft. Paradise Valley estate. According to this July 14, 2019 report in the local newspaper which notes he ranks 10th nationally in public university president pay, Crow also receives a $10,000 vehicle allowance, a $143,450 retirement contribution, and $5,145 nontaxable compensation (medical, vision benefits).

The Arizona Board of Regents, which oversees the state’s three university president’s salaries (ASU, UofA and NAU) and has the ability to award bonuses, is chaired by Larry Penley, who possesses quite a sense of humor:

“I think all of our presidents are really remarkable leaders. We’re very lucky to have them,” Penley said. “When one looks at the marketplace, I really believe that we’re doing a good job in retaining these university presidents, and we’re doing so with reasonable salaries for the kind of jobs they have.”

How does anyone disagree with that “logic”?


Paul Eckstein: Dedicated to nullifying elections by impeaching Republicans      

October 23, 2019

Scheme involves invalidating the voice of voting citizens

Still smarting from the drubbing she took, the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic has gone full-bore on impeachment for President Donald Trump, who royally trounced the scandal plagued former senator in 2016.

Undoubtedly the extremist newspaper that delights in hammering Republican officials, considers it justified retribution for the 1998 humiliation of Bill Clinton. He was impeached and disbarred, but not removed from office, for suborning perjury to a grand jury and obstruction of justice, connected to his dalliance with a young White House intern — causing the name Monica to become a verb. This was Bill Clinton looking the nation in the eye and swearing to a falsehood, later disproved by the stain on her notorious blue dress. (Scroll down to FBI report.)

To reinforce the newspaper’s case for impeachment, an opinion commentary imbued with braggadocio by leftist lawyer Paul Eckstein, titled, “I helped impeach Arizona’s governor. It’s time for Congress to do the same with Trump,” topped the editorial page. 

Known for frequently representing the Democrat Party, Eckstein basks in the memory of co-prosecuting Arizona Gov. Evan Mecham, who in 1986 was underestimated by his opponents just as Donald Trump has been. A former state senator and successful businessman, Republican Mecham was victorious in a three-way general election with a Democrat and registered Independent, that set the status quo on its ear. In the primary Mecham trounced the powerful House Speaker and wheeler-dealer Burton Barr, who had the backing of the GOP establishment, even though he admitted lying about a “temporary tax” that turned out to be permanent.

Gov. Mecham, who served from January 5, 1987 to April 4, 1988, was removed from office following a conviction in the impeachment trial on charges of obstruction of justice and misuse of government funds — money Mecham maintained was private. Though a later criminal trial acquitted Mecham of the charges, the damage was done, and he was replaced by an inept Democrat Secretary of State, via the line of ascendancy in Arizona.

When the people spoke at the ballot box, it was time to show them who was boss…and it wasn’t them. As we’ve seen, impeachment is the slick process Democrats employ to invalidate an election of popular Republicans.

Now an octogenarian, Eckstein has his vengeful memories to give him a ‘boost.’  He’d get more benefit by grabbing a plastic bottle and swigging down the nutrient rich sauce for seniors.


Mitt outed as narcissistic self-defending twitter “lurker”

October 22, 2019

French speaking Mitt morphs into self-adoring Pierre Delecto 

Now that Utah Sen. Mitt Romney has been uncloaked as “Pierre Delecto,” a nom de plume he affected on his surreptitious, self-adoring twitter account, the disclosure begged for more answers.

When the deceit was discovered and he was asked if he was, in fact, Pierre Delecto, he embarrassingly answered in the affirmative, though not in English. Mitt Romney, whose Michigan governor father, George, was born in Mexico, didn’t respond in Spanish, either.  Nope.  He went into full Pierre Delecto mode, admitting, “C’est moi,”  French for “it’s me.” Romney was forced to confess he used the sham account and false name to defend himself against detractors.

A bit of checking revealed his fluency was due to the 2 1/2 years in the 60s he spent in France while fulfilling his Church mission, giving him the ability to respond as his alter ego Pierre Delecto would. Pierre likes Mitt.  He really likes Mitt.

The pro-abortion and open border supporting former Governor of Massachusetts was so inept, he lost the 2008 GOP presidential nomination to John McCain. In 2012, he lost to incumbent president Barack Obama. After vilifying Donald Trump, he came begging for the Secretary of State position when Trump was elected in 2016.  President Trump let him grovel, but was too smart to bring Pierre Delecto into his cabinet, to undermine him and his policies.
