2020 Election audit: What’s the AZ Republic afraid of?

April 30, 2021

The seriously declining Arizona Republic newspaper devotes the majority of today’s front page to deprecating the state senate authorized and judicially approved audit of Maricopa County’s 2020 General Election audit that is currently in progress. Including five Page One photographs and a jump page, the intended to malign coverage is headlined “Tracking the Ninjas” and tries to undermine the legitimate audit with the prominent line: “Conspiracies, suspicions mix as ‘monitors’ on social media track Arizona election audit.”

Cyber Ninjas is the official name of the company hired by the Arizona Senate to conduct the audit of 2.1 million ballots. The audit, televised by nine separate cameras, can be viewed at AZAudit.org.

SRAZ covered the ongoing deceit earlier this week with, Maricopa County 2020 presidential ballot audit: Who do you believe? noting the newspaper‘s fake headline, “Arizona Senate audit gets off to shaky start, with rules finalized on the fly.”

This is the same open-border supporting, Trump-hating newspaper that admitted it lost massive numbers of subscribers (editorial admission removed) with its 2016 Hillary Clinton endorsement, while acknowledging her “flaws and serious missteps.” When reality hit, it vowed to end its longstanding endorsement policy that included lists of contenders for every statewide office as well as ballot propositions. This publicized new posture was a nothing more than a winking hoax. When biased articles and editorials malign Republicans and conservative issues on a daily basis, the need for lists of endorsements is eliminated.

Today’s edition actually has the audacity to print an editorial jointly written by democrat Gabby Giffords and the aptly named republicrat Jeff Flake, titled “Let’s give up bitter partisanship.”

Flake, mentored by Señor Juan McAmnesty, served a single senate term and left in disgrace after he could only muster a bottom-dragging 18% approval rating in his home state of Arizona.  He was reduced to gaining notoriety for writing meager checks to democrats and posting photos of his donations online, making a pathetic spectacle of himself.

The garbage liner passing itself off as a newspaper is epitomized by Phil Boas, the editorial page editor who led the daily assault on his own father-in-law, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio — who repeatedly won election as the unprecedented 6-four year term Maricopa County Sheriff.

The national blog Gateway Pundit, has more credibility on the audit than anything in the far-left agendized local newspaper. Today’s must-read edition is headlined:

Biden addresses congress, sets stage for economic disaster

April 29, 2021

When President Donald Trump gave his first speech to a joint session of Congress Feb. 28, 2017, outlining his goals for his administration, it was downplayed by the Hillary adoring media who still hadn’t gotten over the fact that she was soundly trounced by the man they blatantly discounted.  

Congressional democrats’ visceral hatred was evident when many boycotted his inauguration, setting the tone for their contentious relationship. As a non-politician, they expected to run roughshod over him, but he antagonized them all by keeping his campaign promises, which endeared him to Americans who value the U.S. Constitution.

Blunderful Joe Biden should be given credit for being well prepped by his understandably apprehensive staff. He remained upright and read the teleprompter without major gaffes, though stumbling over several words. In stark contrast to her offensive disrespect when Trump spoke, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, seated behind Biden didn’t meticulously rip up her copy of his speech or overt her eyes from him. She repeatedly stood and applauded. Vice President Kamala Harris, seated beside Pelosi, ditched her ubiquitous, dour funereal black pant suit for a pastel pink outfit.  Biden said he has tasked her with leading the job plan. Over a month ago, he appointed Harris to oversee the border crisis, though she has yet to even schedule a visit to the southern border, laughing when questioned about her mission.

Though mainly MIA since his inauguration, Biden declared his first 100 days have been about “rescue and renewal,” enthusiastically urging, “Go get vaccinated, America!”

Emulating his string-pulling mentor Barack Obama, who famously derided  business owners, stating, “You didn‘t build that.” Biden parroted, “Wall Street didn’t build this country,” ridiculously declaring climate change as a means of creating jobs.

Biden, lobbing an indefensible insult at President Trump, irrationally claimed he “took over a nation in crisis,” as he touted his $1.8 trillion economic plan after recently unveiling a $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan paid for by “taxing the rich,” or punishing success, setting the stage for class warfare.

Economists warn the scheme could damage the economy as detailed in this Washington Examiner report by Brad Polumbo. The Heritage Foundation’s Parker Sheppard explains the disastrous long-run economic effects of raising the corporate tax rate to 28 percent.

America is in for a rough ride. Thank those you know who voted for this unmitigated disaster that will adversely affect future generations and set the U.S. up for third world status. Leftist partisans deserve our contempt for ignoring the historically greatest economy and lowest unemployment rates delivered by businessman Trump.

Climate change, Green New Deal, come to your dinner plate

April 28, 2021

In a statement that “the conversation about sustainable cooking clearly needs to be louder,” digital food magazine Epicurious announced it will no longer publish recipes featuring beef in what it says is an effort to help home cooks become more environmentally friendly.

A couple of years ago Associated Press even weighed in on the anti-environmental effects of cow farts, which they concluded were not as problematic as bovine belches. At the time, with tongue only marginally in cheek, they wrote, “In the climate change debate, some policymakers seem to be bovine flatulence deniers.”

It should come as no surprise to find that since 2015, during the Obama administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture was partnering with Microsoft to launch the “Innovation Challenge,” a competition to develop software applications contrived to “assist” farmers, agriculture businesses, and consumers explore how climate change will affect their food systems.

Now with Barack Obama out of sight, though actively involved in directing the Biden-Harris administration, stay alert to see how the Wagyu beef eater will attempt to control not only every aspect of the U.S. government, but how and what meat Americans are able to purchase and prepare for their families and friends. In 2009, Michelle Malkin covered the Obama’s high-end tastes and their predilection for serving Wagyu at White House soirees. The average price in 2021 is $250 per pound.

Enjoy your veggie burgers, eggplant and Brussels Sprouts. No cheating. “Big Brother* is watching.

*The term comes from George Orwell’s eerily prophetic novel, “1984,” and refers to the government’s surveillance of people with listening devices and cameras, in a totalitarian society, where Big Brother is the head of the regime. Everyone in this society is under surveillance by the authorities, which continually reminds the citizens with the endless catchphrase “Big Brother is watching You.” Orwell wrote his book in 1949.


Dem AZ US Sens. Sinema, Kelly hammered by leftist columnist

April 27, 2021

The dem duo is not leftwing enough to suit radical local newspaper columnist

Judging from the number of songs dedicated to the topic, there are few things as wrenching as a romance gone wrong. Still the ache can turn to rage, as we witness with local newspaper columnist, Elvia Diaz.

A committed leftist, Diaz is solidly on board with elected democrats, both local and national. Republicans elicit her bile spews. Conservatives are doused with her contempt. Now, however, in a column headlined, “Sinema, Kelly just opportunistic,” she disgorges her fury at democrats who dare to veer, ever so slightly, from marching in her jack-booted lockstep.

Diaz saves her most vicious revulsion for democrats who stray from the hard-left line she has drawn in the sand that makes up her brain’s cerebrum, which normally controls senses, reasoning and judgment.

She first rips into Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, who she refers to as a “self-declared border czar” for issuing this Declaration of Emergency at Arizona’s southern border and deploying 250 National Guard troops to deal with the illegal alien invasion. Dias refers to them as “asylum seekers” and knocks President Trump’s effective border policies, without having to taint her fingers by typing out the name Donald Trump, instead referring to him multiple times as “the former president.”

Kneeling at the Biden altar, Diaz inconceivably saves her strongest ire for democrats and former objects of her affection, Arizona U.S. Senators  Krysten Sinema and Mark Kelly (he faces reelection in 2022), who she now accuses of “scoring political points by rushing to back” Ducey’s decision. “But they didn’t stop there,” an irate Diaz rants. She accuses them of having the audacity to send this letter to the White House, using the forbidden word “crisis” and asking for financial reimbursement from the flawed president she voted for.

SRAZ wrote, AZ Sens. Sinema, Kelly suddenly want Biden to fund border troops,” last week.

Citing the recent Quinnipiac poll we previously posted (3rd paragraph from the bottom) Diaz begrudgingly admits, “Border security is Biden’s weak spot and that can hurt Democrats with some voters.” Notice the equivocal “some” inserted as a calmer to fellow leftists. The poll shows a overwhelming 55% disapprove of Biden’s neglect of the U.S./Mexican border, compared to 29% who approve.

VP Kamala Harris, Biden’s appointed border czar has been too busy redecorating the vice presidential mansion and shopping for her ubiquitous black suits to travel to the border, although she does find the topic worthy of one of her now famous cackles.


When logic won’t play, ecology is next go-to border ploy

April 26, 2021

 AZ newspaper desperately calls effective border wall “ecological disaster”

Sunday’s edition of the seriously declining local newspaper exemplifies the facile agility of a desperate contortionist. Aware there is no way to logically promote the massive invasion of the United States by illegal aliens from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, which has reached crisis proportions during the Biden administration, the latest marketing tool being employed is ecological: “Scarring sacred lands” and “displacing wildlife.” The poser following this absurdity is, “Can the border fence be taken down?” The front page report is dramatically headlined, “The Wall’s Death Grip,” continuing on three full inside pages.

This is a sample of “facts” from the article: “The construction has cut through fragile ecosystems in some of North America’s hotspots of biodiversity, where animal species like bears and jaguars once roamed unimpeded. While the long-term effects on the environment are uncertain, conservationists say the barriers and water use have worsened conditions for habitats already threatened by the changing climate.”

Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Minister for Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, masterminded the Nazi propaganda machine while implementing its murderous agenda. His effective theme was “Tell the big lie often enough and people will come to believe it.” That deceit has become the reliable tool of the left. Joe Biden, as feeble and frail as the Arizona Republic, has appointed Vice President Kamala Harris to be in charge of implementing border policy, which she finds laughable. She has yet to hold a press conference or travel to the southern border to witness the massive influx of uneducated hordes — among them, thousands of unaccompanied minors — all being welcomed and resettled across the U.S. as eventual democrats by the Biden administration. 

Their underhanded dealing on this critical problem isn’t playing well with Americans. A Quinnipiac University poll found that only 29 percent of Americans approve of Biden’s handling the border crisis, while 55 percent disapprove.

Forty-eight percent also told Pew that they view illegal immigration as a “very big problem,” up 20 points from a year ago.

No wonder a ballot recount is taking place in Arizona‘s most populous county.


Maricopa County 2020 presidential ballot audit: Who do you believe?

April 25, 2021

Gateway Pundit ‘s Jim Hoft, who has previously scooped the local, Trump-hating, Arizona Republic newspaper on issues relating to the ballot recount, headlines his report, “BREAKING – IT’S HAPPENING! Arizona Election Workers are Running Ultra-Violet Ballot Testing on Maricopa Ballots (VIDEO).”

The newspaper topped its biased coverage with this falsified header: “Arizona Senate audit gets off to shaky start, with rules finalized on the fly.” 

This petulant coverage, filled with quotes from democrat operatives, a lawyer representing the democrat party who referred to the ballot auditors as “rogue actors,” and the audit itself as a “so-called audit,” is unworthy of a link. County Supervisor Steve Gallardo, the lone democrat on the five-member board busied himself filing a last-minute lawsuit in Maricopa County Superior Court Thursday night attempting to stop the audit.

The unnamed judge, possessing Solomon-like wisdom, issued an injunction stopping the audit until Monday, with the stipulation that the democrat party post a $1 million bond to cover the potential costs of the delay. The outfoxed dems conceded Friday they wouldn’t/couldn’t be coughing up that kind of cash, and the recount at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum proceeded as scheduled.

The audit, televised by nine separate cameras, can be viewed at AZAudit.org

To illustrate the democrat party’s disconnect with reality, County Chair, Raquel Teran issued a statement that said in part, “We are calling on Governor Doug Ducey and Attorney General Mark Brnovich to put an end to this madness and protect our election systems from conspiracy theorists.”

Ms. Teran has obviously forgotten that neither the Arizona Governor nor Attorney General take their marching orders from the democrat party. They are both Republicans.

Joe Biden’s bait and switch presidency

April 24, 2021

Although a late find, it was entirely appropriate this commentary was published on April 1st — April Fools’ Day. We disagree with Charles Lipson’s description of former President Donald Trump, but the rest of his analysis is spot on. Americans who voted for barely cognizant, Obama-puppet Joe Biden got exactly what they deserved. The rest of us didn’t.

We urge you to read “Biden’s Bait-and-Switch Presidency,” originally posted on Real Clear Politics. Since this was written, matters have worsened. Leftist rioters have once again taken to the streets, creating havoc. Police are reviled and  have morphed into the enemy, as radical mayors and councils have appallingly called for them to be ’defunded’ and their forces dismantled. ‘Secure America Now’ has a list of the 11 major cities marching in lockstep off the cliff and into the abyss of criminality. This was the Phoenix mob demanding defunding, as covered by the local newspaper, including a gallery of 40 photos.

Despite our southern border being beyond crisis mode, the administration’s spokes-mouth Jen Psaki refuses to make any such admission. VP Kamala Harris, charged with overseeing the disaster, has yet to venture south though GOP members of congress and reporters have made it a priority. Taxes, which were reined in by President Trump, have surged due to astronomical and unsustainable spending by obliging marionette Biden. He has bowed to the radical Climate Change/Green New Deal agenda currently bearing the preposterous price tag of $93 Trillion, dramatically impacting U.S. households — while requiring no concessions from major global polluters China, India and Russia (which top the list). Biden pledged to cut the US’s greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030, doubling the US’s goals under the Paris Climate Accord. It was a cinch for him to make that commitment, since closing in on octogenarian status and weakened with declining cognitive acuity, in addition to having suffered recent falls, he will be long gone by then and will not have to answer for the destruction of America he and his partisans are attempting to ensure.

The term “systemic racism,” which has become the holy grail of the left, is debunked by the fact that Americans elected and reelected Barack Obama as U.S. President. Kamala Harris is now Vice President, likely to be in the Oval Office before frail Biden‘s term has officially concluded. Minorities are a presence in every aspect of American life, from medicine, government, law, education and science to policing. PragerU features Larry Elder, Carol Swain, Candace Owens and others bringing clarity to the topic. Each brief but enlightening segment is worth your time.


AZ Sens. Sinema, Kelly suddenly want Biden to fund border troops

April 23, 2021

The democrat senatorial duo of Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly have become proficient tealeaf readers as elections near. Not only are alarmed Americans riled over the massive surges of illegal aliens from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras breaching our border, thousands of them are unaccompanied minors, dangerously being transported by drug cartel members who are reportedly paid $3,000 per person. Though many are COVID positive they are being put on buses and sent out across our nation. Among the uneducated population are criminals, whose home countries willingly released them from prisons, cutting their own costs. The dire situation has become intolerable as the Biden administration has dismantled the border wall construction that President Trump was effectively erecting, fulfilling a campaign promise.  Mexican President Lopez Obrador, who developed a warm relationship with President Trump,  has referred to Biden as the “migrant president,” due to his lax asylum policies. Mexico views Biden’s policies as an incentive for criminals who arrive at our border after entering Mexico from Central America.

On April 20, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, who obviously has political aspirations issued this Emergency Declaration, announcing his deployment of Arizona National Guard troops to the border. Making certain his actions receive full coverage, he also made this video available.

As if on cue, Sinema, up for reelection in 2024, and Kelly have requested that Biden pay for the troops. Anti-Second Amendment Kelly won a special election to finish the rest of Sen. Martha McSally’s term following the former congresswoman’s appointment to complete the remainder of John McCain’s term. Kelly will be up for reelection in 2022. Both Sinema and Kelly have close ties to Barack Obama, which explains why they each deceptively waged campaigns without ever mentioning their party affiliation.

Keep your eye on these untrustworthy, far-left characters. They are back to their established charade of presenting themselves in the political neutral mode. They are both extreme partisans engaging in trickery.


Former Tucson officer condemns left’s lies about police: “It’s hurting black people”

April 22, 2021

Retired Tucson police officer Brandon Tatum, who is black, joined “The Ingraham Angle” Wednesday evening and slammed Benjamin Crump, LeBron James and liberal politicians who he said are pushing a dangerous and false narrative that law enforcement is racist.  (LeBron James has removed an incendiary tweet targeting the officer who shot and killed a teenage girl who was attempting to stab another teen girl.)

TATUM: “They should be ashamed of themselves coming out lying on this police officer and lying on that girl (Ma’Khia Bryant). That girl had a knife in her hand and she was getting ready to stab another young black girl in the face. She wasn’t just swinging a knife. She was going to stab the girl in the face and she was fatally shot. Officers have every right to use deadly force against another person to protect the life of another individual.”

LAURA INGRAHAM: “These people want there to be hatred and evilness in our country and they want police officers to be demonized. They want police officers and the public to have conflicts [so] they can continue to get better ratings. They can continue to get reelected, keep promising the public [policies] they can never deliver on.

TATUM: “They seem almost disappointed, do they not, when the facts don’t exactly match up with an easier narrative to perhaps vilify the police, whether it’s skin color of the people involved or whether there was a weapon involved.

They usually have a meltdown or they completely lie about it because it makes them look like hypocrites.

I really am sick and tired of listening to these people get on TV with no accountability. They are flat-out lying and stoking violence in our communities.

This is not hurting white people. It’s making other black people become more violent and feel like their life is endangered by police. They’re going to end up getting hurt and end up dying and not having patrols in their communities, which makes their communities more violent. It’s hurting black people and is perpetuated by a lot of black leaders.

LeBron James is living on a high horse in a multimillion dollar house, living near nothing but white people. At the drop of a dime, he will have white officers at his house doing investigations on false claims, if there are some. LeBron James and the people like the BLM cofounder living in million-dollar houses, they don’t care … I really wish they would be held accountable and at least be ashamed of what they’re doing to our country.”.

Deadly criminality has become routine in big cites around the country. As the New York Post reported in early February, “These black lives didn’t seem to matter in 2020.” Take time to read it, become aware of the shocking statistics and follow the informative links. You’ll know a lot more when you finish reading than when you began.


Derek Chauvin case: Was justice served by false systemic racism claims?

April 21, 2021

What has been lost in the coverage of the guilty verdict for former Milwaukee police officer Derek Chauvin is the fact that before he was elevated to sainthood in death, George Floyd was a career criminal imprisoned numerous times for a variety of major felonies and as his autopsy verifies, he was high on illegal drugs, though diagnosed with  chronic heart disease and positive for COVID-19. Police were initially called on the day of his death because he was engaged in the crime of trying to pass a counterfeit $20 bill in a store. At 6’4″ and weighing 223 lbs, Floyd was difficult to restrain as he resisted arrest. Officer Chauvin is 5’9″ and weighs 140 lbs. On Tuesday Derek Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Jurors were under intense pressure to render the verdict they did, fearful of riots, arson and looting, or what the left-wing media has come to minimize as “unrest.” They were also aware of the $27 million payment awarded to Floyd’s family by the Milwaukee City Council.

The deck was stacked. Judge Peter Cahill erred in not seeking a change of venue from the city where tensions ran high and not sequestering the jurors. Pres. Joe Biden publicly weighed in saying he was, “Praying for a guilty verdict.” VP Kamala Harris opined, “I think there needs to be a consequence and accountability for people who break the law. Period.” She obviously was not referring to Floyd. Both Biden and Harris hold law degrees and understand the impropriety of their statements, but the fact remains, such incendiary words resonate with their base. U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters another democrat, stated in advance of the verdict that “protesters need to “stay on the street” and “get more confrontational.”

To advance their political agenda, the left has race hustled, as prolific conservative columnist, author and professor, Dr. Thomas Sowell, then a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University wrote in 2016 in his column “War on Cops.” Now retired, his words still ring true as they relate to the race fraud that has been foisted upon the black community by those who benefit from what Sowell, who is black and rose from poverty to prominence, referred to as the “poisonous atmosphere” perpetrated by career race hustlers and racist institutions like the “Black Lives Matter” movement.

Akin to “white privilege,” “systemic racism” is a massive deceit crafted by democrats to advance their political power. They are now pushing legislation for reparations for slavery to be paid to people who never were slaves by others who never owned slaves. For the political left to remain relevant, they need members of their constituency to feel oppressed and victimized. Extolling the USA as the land of opportunity where people of all races can succeed doesn‘t fit their narrative asserting inescapable minority victimhood.

Derek Chauvin will no doubt spend the rest of his life in prison. Three other officers, one a rookie, who were at the arrest scene, have yet to be tried.
