AP report: Hard-copy newspapers dying at breakneck speed

June 30, 2022

SRAZ has frequently weighed in on Arizona’s blatantly leftist, Hilary-endorsing newspaper, verifying that it is barely hanging on to its radical perch. It is certainly suffering through some hard times, though mostly due to its stubborn bonding to a hard-left, open borders perspective and foolish refusal to stop insulting its remaining readers, most of whom are senior citizens.

On Wednesday, Associated Press substantiated our findings on a national scale. The diminishing numbers are shocking. David Bauder’s report is headlined, “U.S. newspapers continuing to die at rate of 2 each week.”

This Dec. 30, 2021, post, AZ Republic reneges on subscribers third time since Sept.,” exposed the latest money saving scam, engaged in by the failing newspaper: Non-deliveries to paying subscribers. That’s known as theft, which is a prosecutable crime under the Arizona Criminal Code Title 13. Criminal Code § 13-1802.

Newspapers have been in decline for a very long time. The Phoenix Gazette, the afternoon edition for Arizonans who wanted the most recent news, bit the dust with the advent of televised news. Then the Internet, via cell phones, which could be conveniently carried, discretely vibrating when a new report is available, signaled the demise of home-delivered newspapers, which are vanishing and will be replaced by a fully online content, incurring no need for newsprint, ink and delivery.

Hard copy news is known as a newsosaur for a reason. The La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles are a monument to prehistoric creatures. They sell tickets for access.  Even free of charge a dead newsroom, reliant on student reporters lacking editors is nothing to see. 


Why Mark Finchem deserves your vote for AZ Secretary of State

June 29, 2022

Today we take our readers directly to Gateway Pundit to read a timely report by Jordan Conradson, titled: “State Rep. Mark Finchem Calls On The Attorney General’s Office To Investigate Democrat Adrian “Fast and Furious” Fontes And Others Involved In The June 24th AZ Riot & Insurrection.”

Read Mark Finchem’s recent statement regarding the US Supreme Court’s decision to return Roe v. Wade to the states, which includes his news release.

Arizona does not have a lieutenant governor. Our line of ascension is the secretary of state. Who better in this important position than constitutional conservative State Rep. Mark Finchem?

Matt Salmon lacks traction, withdraws from AZ Governor’s race

June 28, 2022

Former Congressman and current gubernatorial candidate has thrown in the towel on his bid for governor. The oddly timed move comes a week before early ballots, with his name on them as a candidate, are mailed out.

“I am so proud of everything that we have been able to accomplish together over the past year. I’ve been blessed with the best staff members, volunteers, and activists in Arizona, and I will forever be grateful for the tireless work and heart-felt passion that they gave to this campaign. Our ideas changed this race for the better – there is no doubt about that.

Unfortunately, numbers are numbers, and it has become clear to me that the path to a first-place victory is no longer a realistic possibility. Republican primary voters deserve more than having their votes split on August 2nd, and so I am leaving this race for the same reason that I entered it: Because it is what’s best for the people of Arizona.”

His complete statement, addressed “To my supporters, the best in Arizona,” can be read here.

Best guess is Salmon will endorse Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson, who gave him a warm send-off. Kari Lake, lacking the grace to say goodbye, has been mum.

Biden rightly accused of having blood on his hands

Failure to secure southern border encourages risky actions

The horrific cost in terms of lives lost was all too apparent Monday after Texas authorities located an 18-wheeler with at least 100 illegal aliens abandoned in San Antonio, including at least 46 individuals who were dead of heat related causes, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott blamed President Joe Biden and his immigration policies.

In this tweet, Abbott, a Republican who is running for reelection, said Monday evening’s gruesome discovery rests squarely on Biden. “At Least 42 People Found Dead Inside Truck Carrying Migrants In Texas. These deaths are on Biden,” Abbott said, Officials later raised the death toll to at least 46. “They are a result of his deadly open border policies. They show the deadly consequences of his refusal to enforce the law.”

As of Tuesday morning the death toll rose to 50, including seven Guatemalan citizens and two Honduran citizens.

Recently, Republican National Committee spokesperson Nicole Morales accused democrat gubernatorial challenger O’Rourke of showing that he’s out-of-touch with Texans. Disregarding his preferred Hispanic sounding nickname “Beto,” she emphatically declared, “Robert Francis O’Rourke is once again proving himself to be out-of-touch with Texans. Biden’s border crisis is almost as ‘great’ as Beto’s failed presidential run,” Morales stated.

A new record was set for the number of illegal alien encounters at the southern border, reaching 235,000 in April. Biden, Pelosi and Schumer view the illegals — the ones who survive — as grateful new democrats.

AZ Republic’s long awaited apology misses the mark

June 27, 2022

Alluding to cramps more offensive than daily assault of leftwing dishonesty and promoting abortions

The Arizona Republic is a failing relic from another time. It has fallen on hard times and few subscribers remain, due not only to its relentless leftwing bias, but to the fact that day-old news thrown on a driveway has been replaced by instant news, as close as your pocket and providing a wide variety of perspectives rather than the constant drone of a far-left whine. It has even curtailed deliveries to paid subscribers in an effort to keep itself afloat.

Yet Sunday’s edition momentarily provided some hope that the editorial board that veers so far left it is impossible to correct its stance, had seen the light. Tucked away on page 4A was this all caps headlined, NOTE TO READERS:

“The Dilbert cartoon in today’s newspaper contains material that could be offensive to many readers. Unfortunately, our comics section was pre-printed, and we were not able to replace it with another comic strip.  We apologize to readers who find offense.”

For this Dilbert cartoon which mentions “cramps” to be considered offensive, but the daily barrage of leftist insults and month-long same-sex “pride” events rate a pass, exemplifies the insanity that drives the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-despising, out-of-touch with reality, garbage can liner.

Monday’s edition includes a multi-page “report” peddling the lie that abortion has been overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court. In fact, the Supreme Court merely turned the decision back to the individual state legislatures. Reporter Stephanie Innes actually used the words, “Pregnant person’s rights.” Attributing pregnancy to something only women experience is a bridge too far for radicals. And granting “personhood” status to pre-born human infants rates as abhorrent.

Businesses fund abortion related expenses…vote with your feet

June 26, 2022

We have choices. Take your business and your votes elsewhere

Americans remain in a fragile economy, with Bidenflation continuing to cause prices to soar and consumers cutting back on high priced meat and dining out less frequently. Housing costs have surged beyond the grasp of many would-be buyers. Going shopping as a diversion is a thing of the past as raging gas prices are considered before every trip. Supply chains are continuing to face disruptions, resulting in higher costs for decreasing products. Year-old cars cost more than they did new.

With this as a backdrop, businesses with a political agenda have recklessly decided to push customers away, bizarrely referring to abortion as a matter of “healthcare,”” though not for the baby whose life will be snuffed out.

The Hill has a list of some of the major companies that will pay for abortion related and “gender-affirming,” travel expenses.  Be aware that these costs will be passed along to consumers. Those engaging in this slap in the face of pro-life consumers are listed here. As an example, Amazon told employees that it will pay up to $4,000 in travel expenses annually for non-life threatening medical procedures that are not available within 100 miles of an employee’s home, including abortions. If you value life, don’t fund this high-priced death package in exchange for convenience. Planned Parenthood Arizona, which makes millions in revenue as an abortion provider, continues to solicit “your tax-deductible gift today so we can continue to protect and provide care, no matter what.”

Anticipating outrage, The Hill removed its comment section for this post, depicting Biden holding a much different opinion than he does today

“I do not view abortion as a choice and a right. I think it’s always a tragedy, and I think that it should be rare and safe.” he said in 2006.

Be aware: Rodney Glassman, a perennial election loser is now opportunistically running as a Republican for Arizona Attorney General. Glassman was previously a lifelong democrat who was endorsed by Planned Parenthood.

Seeing Red AZ endorses superbly well qualified, Constitutional Conservative Andrew Gould, for Attorney General.

Joe Biden’s blatant deceit, cognitive decline, creepiness exposed

SCOTUS decision monumental win for Second Amendment

June 24, 2022

Trump’s legacy: Seating three conservative justices on US Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday struck down a New York law that placed strict restrictions on carrying concealed firearms in public for self defense, finding its requirement that applicants seeking a license to carry a concealed handgun demonstrate a “proper cause” to do so in public is unconstitutional.

In a 6-3 ruling, the Supreme Court reversed a lower court decision upholding New York’s 108-year-old law limiting who can obtain a license to carry a concealed handgun in public. Opponents of the measure warned that a ruling from the high court invalidating the restrictions could threaten gun limitations in several states and lead to more firearms on city streets.

Justice Clarence Thomas delivered the majority opinion, writing that New York’s “proper-cause requirement” prevented law-abiding citizens from exercising their Second Amendment right.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) addresses the victory, calling it “the most significant Second Amendment ruling in more than a decade.” Jason Ouimet, executive director, National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) and Wayne LaPierre, NRA executive vice president discuss the ruling and the role the NRA has played to bring about these triumphs on behalf of law abiding citizens.  If you’re not already a member, JOIN! The NRA has been reliable stalwart in protecting our rights.

SCOTUS’ 5-4 decision curtails Roe, returns abortion to states

June 24, 2022

An estimated 63 million American babies have been slaughtered since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion was given the green light

Breitbart News’ coverage of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision is written by Ken Klukowski a senior counsel attorney who formerly served in the White House and Justice Department. We are linking to his coverage — Supreme Court Overrules Roe v. Wade in Dobbs Decision – Returns Abortion to State Lawmakers — since it comes with the proviso that it is a developing story and will be updated throughout the day.

The majority opinion, authored by Justice Samuel Alito, was joined by Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett. Thomas and Kavanaugh also filed concurring opinions. Chief Justice John Roberts presided. The dissenting justices are leftist democrats Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer, and Sonya Sotomayor. The decision comes just days before Biden appointee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson takes a seat on the Supreme Court, replacing retiring Breyer. Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor are both unmarried and childless.

Gorsuch was nominated by President Donald Trump to fill the vacancy left by the unexpected death of Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016. The vacancy became especially contentious, as democrats strongly objected that Senate Republicans should not have blocked then-President Barack Obama’s nomination of federal appellate court judge Merrick Garland. Garland later was appointed President Joe Biden’s attorney general.

Party-switching Kari Lake, a local affiliate teleprompter newsreader and Barack Obama donor — now a newly-minted conservative Republican running for Arizona governor — was a vocal supporter of Obama putting pro-abortion Merrick Garland on the U.S. Supreme Court.  Play that scenario out to what would have been its horrid conclusion. As Joe Biden’s U.S. Attorney General, Merrick Garland has referred to parents who attended School Board meetings and protested radical curriculum as “domestic terrorists.”

This is the face of a farce.
