Dem voter suppression claim kicked to the curb by US Rep. Burgess Owens

March 15, 2021

Former football star still plays hardball though in a different field 

Today we take our readers directly to the Daily Wire to meet a new conservative shining star, Utah Congressman Burgess Owens, who unseated a democrat incumbent in the state’s November 2020 election.

Although he previously won acclaim as the NFL player who led the Oakland Raiders to victory in the 1980 Super Bowl, Owens was an early standout in the political arena as a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump. During the Utah Republican primary, Owens, who is black, capably won in a crowded field by running to the right of his opponents while unequivocally disagreeing with athletes kneeling during the national anthem in support of Black Lives Matter.

Congressional democrats are working double time to gut state voter ID laws and any restrictions on election day registration, as they require state agencies to provide names and addresses for recipients of aid and any state services to be placed on the permanent mail-in ballot list, under the fraudulent claim that not doing so “suppresses the vote.” The Daily Wire‘s Hank Berrien writes, Tell Me Again, Why Is Showing A Voter I.D. Voter Suppression’: Burgess Owens Slams Critics Of Voter I.D. Law.

The Heritage Foundation’s Hans von Spakovsky, an attorney and a former member of the Federal Election Commission details the extreme election mandates that blatantly enable voter fraud which the democrats are working to impose through H.R. 1, — a nearly 800 page overreach — deceptively titled,For the People Act of 2021.” The House bill’s number and its Senate joint measure S. R. 1, clearly identifies this as the democrats’ first legislative priority. There are even attempts to lower the voting age to 16.

Republicans in state legislatures throughout the nation are committed to ensuring voting integrity, but the biggest hurdle is the educrat establishment which puts no priority on American history and civics and whose unions refuse to open schools.

According to the Nation’s Report Card, just 24% of U.S. high schoolers are proficient in civics upon graduation. Even the left-of-center Annenberg Foundation’s Constitution Day 2020 Civics Survey indicates just 51% of Americans can correctly name all three branches of government, with 23% unable to name any branches of government.  As of 2018, just eight states and the District of Columbia required at least a year of US government or civics courses prior to high school graduation. 

No wonder democrats view Americans as ripe for a takeover of our basic freedoms. We need to elect more of the caliber of Burgess Owens.

REMINDER TO OUR READERS: In accordance with our 2020 policy, the word “democrat” or its derivatives will no longer be capitalized on this site.


AZ Ed Supe Kathy Hoffman: The gift that keeps on giving

March 6, 2021

Putting democrats in charge of education is a fool’s errand

Ever on the cutting edge of Arizona’s remote learning education system, as she bows to the not-inclined-to-work teacher’s unions, Kathy Hoffman, the state’s far left Superintendent of Public Instruction has a novel plan to ensure students are learning…how not to be racist. Training should begin in infancy. It promotes racial “equity and diversity” through an “anti-racist” program that advances the outrageous notion that white babies and toddlers are racist.

Caucasian self-flagellation has become expected. There is actually an article on HuffPost titled,How white parents can talk to their kids about race,” which includes an age-by-age guide for white parents to address “racism and privilege” with their children.  It states: “White parents can and should begin addressing issues of race and racism early, even before their children can speak.”

Race now takes precedent to learning. According to a bizarre study conducted by the Children‘s Community School in Pittsburgh, a preschool dedicated to “economic and racial justice,” by the age of five, white children are strongly biased in favor of whiteness, while black and Hispanic children showed no preference toward their own groups.  Seriously.

Provided for Arizona teachers is an “equity and diversity” tool kit.

And though American students fall far behind other nations in basic skills, Kathy Hoffman has incorporated the exclusively inclusive Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. A focus on ethnicity rather than education is preposterous, in addition to ill-preparing our children to succeed in a global economy. All the more so after having lost a year of schooling due to the COVID virus and teacher’s refusals to teach, despite medical studies pointing to the fact that children are not virus transmitters.

This shocking televised news report on the abysmal failure of public education is definitely worth your time.

Arizona’s Superintendent of Public Instruction is the lowest salaried state education administrator in the United States, paid $85,000 compared to the national average of $174,000.

In democrat Kathy Hoffman’s case, she’s overpaid.


AZ Ed Supe Kathy Hoffman needs bright light scrutiny

March 3, 2021

Now that the radical left has deemed the much beloved Dr. Seuss children’s booksracist,” (just as they have the teaching of math) why is the local news suddenly silent on Arizona’s Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman?

Democrat Hoffman took the oath of office on January 2019 with hand upon the children’s book, “Too Many Moose! while disdaining the Bible. Fellow leftist Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, the only member of the U.S. Senate not to identify with a faith, took her oath of office on a copy of the Constitution.

If Seuss is racist and his books need to be withdrawn from the public forum, what are we to think about a book bemoaning an ever-increasing number of moose? Obviously it advocates for thinning the herd, which is brought about by certain death.

In addition to Hoffman’s commitment to keep Arizona’s unionized teachers out of the classroom as they continue to get paid and sexualize children beginning in kindergarten with the Comprehensive Sex Ed (CSE) program, Hoffman’s own identity and background are intentionally sketchy.

Gateway Pundit reveals more, and identifies Hoffman as a “transwoman.”

Take a couple of minutes to acquaint yourself with the actual agenda, as reported by Breitbart News. AZ House Speaker: ‘Radicalized’ Sex Ed ‘Grooming Children to Be Sexualized.’

Trying to delve into the mindset of democrats is a bridge too far. Factoring in bogus Republicans is more than anyone with integrity can comprehend. The unifying theme is that RINOs benefit by the deception. Cindy McCain along with Gov. Doug Ducey, who was mentored by McCain, and former single-term Senator Jeff Flake, were recently censured by the elected GOP state committeeman at the January statutory meeting. Anheuser-Busch beer heiress Cindy follows in her deceased husband’s footsteps, as John McCain was also censured by elected Arizona Republican delegates in 2014 for his brazen hostility toward the party he opportunistically used to rise to prominence.

To no one’s surprise, Hoffman was endorsed by Republicrat Cindy McCain, who also campaigned for incompetent Joe Biden.


The wacko party’s aberrant priorities

February 26, 2021

The Heritage Foundation explains theEquality Act,” otherwise known as H.R. 5. The article is subtitled, “How Could Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) Laws Affect You?”

In view of the Biden administration’s thrust to prioritize sexual orientation and gender identity issues in an era of massive unemployment as the result of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s of utmost importance that you acquaint yourself with this disastrous and far-reaching legislation that undermines reason, constitutional protections and religious values. The democrat sponsor is Rhode Island U.S. Rep. David Cicilline, featured in the Advocate’s article, “Meet the 10 Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Members of the 116th Congress, lauded by the LGBTQ Victory Institute, as a “turning point in the history of federal lawmaking.”

Democrats are no longer simply the “other” political party. They have veered off into trendy aberrant arenas that most of us never heard of before the advent of Bruce Jenner morphing into Caitlyn, and which are not the purview of government. Glamour magazine named the former three time husband and father of six biological children and four stepchildren, ‘Woman of the Year,’ in 2015 as a tribute to his/her work in “transgender awareness and advocacy.” Jenner’s acceptance speech was described as “powerful and moving.”

California’s legislative assembly has recently put forth Assembly Bill 1084 requiring “gender neutral” departments in retail stores, banishing specific areas for boys and girl‘s clothing and even toys. Violators would be subject to $1,000 fines.

This is the state that welcomes unvetted illegal aliens during a global pandemic, while American citizens are unemployed and as elitist California Gov. Gavin Newsom has selectively enforced business lockdowns, unilaterally deciding whose jobs are essential. California citizens, who are waging a recall against Newsom, will ultimately have the last word. We wish them well.

Although they continue to be paid, unionized public school teachers still refuse to return to the classroom. In the 2020 election cycle,* the country’s most influential  educrat dominated teachers unions endorsed and supported Biden and democrat senate candidates over their Republican counterparts. The American Federation of Teachers donated $2 million to Priorities USA Action, a democrat super PAC that spent $44.2 million supporting Biden. The National Education Association gave $500,000 to Take Back 2020, another democrat super PAC that spent $6.4 million to run ads supporting Biden. The AFT also gave $175,000 to Take Back 2020. Teachers unions spent a total of $43.7 million in 2020. Remember that the next time you hear teachers are underpaid for their part-time jobs, with long holiday and full summer vacations not accorded any other workers.

Sham scheme to “eliminate racism” dumbs down math students

February 23, 2021

Who knew math was “capitalist, imperialist, and racist”?

Today we’re taking our readers directly to a head-spinning example of the lunacy that leftist billionaire Bill Gates is funding through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The Washington Examiner tops its crucial exposé with these words: Gates Foundation behind effort to end white supremacy in math instruction by eliminating need for students to show work.”

No kidding.

This opinion piece by Jeremy Beaman explains The “Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction” which is best described as racist.

The actual guidelines to the Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction uses these descriptive words, claiming to facilitate an ”Integrated approach to mathematics that centers Black, Latinx, and Multilingual students in grades 6-8, addresses barriers to math equity, and aligns instruction to grade-level priority standards.” The site includes “5 Strides on the Path to Math Equality,” each with its own download

Rather than focusing on one correct answer, the program encourages math teachers to “come up with at least two answers that might solve a problem.”

It continues with this indecipherable jargon: “Challenge standardized test questions by getting the ‘right’ answer, and justify other answers by unpacking the assumptions that are made in the problem.”

The scheme also encourages teachers to “center ethnomathematics,” which includes a variety of guidelines. One of them instructs educators to “identify and challenge the ways that math is used to uphold capitalist, imperialist, and racist views.”

The consequences of this radicalism passing as education can’t be overstated. A catastrophe is first invading America’s far left, educrat-run classrooms* and will then envelop our nation unless we expose and eradicate it now.

Biden prioritizes teachers’ unions over students

February 8, 2021

It couldn’t be more obvious that the calamity affecting American public school students has exacerbated with the duplicitous Biden administration.

Teachers who aren’t teaching are still getting paid as students are falling further behind, suffering academically, emotionally and socially after missing a year of actual instruction, ultimately rendering them less able to compete in the global economy.

Despite the fact that far-left teachers’ unions wield tremendous influence in terms of donations and votes, Center for Disease Control Director Rochelle Walensky has repeatedly asserted that schools can open without teachers being vaccinated since children are less prone to catching or transmitting the virus. Her assertion is substantiated by the official Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

“I also want to be clear that there is increasing data to suggest that schools can safely reopen and that that safe reopening does not suggest that teachers need to be vaccinated in order to reopen safely,” Walensky said.

Even far-left Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has had her fill and is pushing for the defiant Chicago Teachers Union to restart in-person classes for approximately 340,000 students.

Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki, already renowned for her repeated use of the phrase “circle back” and who appears to function as a surrogate for the weak president, called a question about whether Biden would take a stand against union obstruction if negotiations continue to stall “unfair.” Asked again Friday if Biden would use the “bully pulpit” to pressure unions to let kids go back to schools, Psaki asserted “I’m just going to reject the premise of the question.”

Tyler Olson, reporting for Fox News, notes President Biden received more contributions from teachers unions than any other candidate during the 2020 election cycle by a wide margin — underscoring the conundrum that may be headed for the White House if those same unions continue to oppose efforts to open schools for in-person learning.

Biden’s campaign hauled in over $232,000 from teachers unions during the 2020 election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics’ “Open Secrets” website. The site shows the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) “account for practically all” political spending from teachers unions.

The second-highest recipient was Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, who got a mere $50,996.

The amount of money that went directly to any one candidate, however, pales in comparison to the money teachers unions donated to leftist groups in general — over $23.5 million from the NEA and over $14 million from the AFT. Combined, those two groups spent $43 million in political expenditures during the 2020 election cycle, according to Open Secrets.

To no one’s surprise, both unions endorsed Biden for president in March.


Your tax $$ at work: ASU does “equity” cloaked as equality

January 28, 2021

Hopping on the trendiest of leftist misadventures, Arizona State University launches its Center for the Future of Equality. If your kids are of ethnic European heritage, understand they will be marginalized in every aspect of their higher education, regardless of their GPA and other scholastic achievements. Thanks to the deification of drug addicted, (Hennepin County Autopsy Report, page 2), career criminal George Floyd, incarcerated numerous times, we have entered the bizarre self-flagellation era of Melanin Matters. Floyd’s rap sheets can be viewed in the link.

To be brought up to speed on what the leftist, agendized social reformers at Arizona State University are actually proclaiming, read,Equality vs. equity in Joe Biden’s America,” by John Leonard.

The preferred educrat term of the moment is equity, replacing equality, although used interchangeably when it suits their purposes. Equality is based on a universally assured fairness. Equity is a concept newly contrived by the Harris/Biden administration that imposes a vague, illogical concept of “fairness” now based on the amount of melanin in your skin pigment or whether you are at odds with the gender you were born.

You’re invited
Issues of social inequality, racism and economic disparity remain at the forefront of the most serious challenges facing America. The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified their complexity and diminished the confidence and resources of many Americans, yielding serious implications for our nation’s overall health, security and social cohesion. Moreover, business, government and civil sectors have put forth few sustainable solutions.

To move beyond publishing research and reports, ASU is launching a new kind of academic endeavor – An ASU Center for the Future of Equality – to create tangible and useful products that communities can use to help reduce the effects of inequality.

Please join us on February 11 at 1 p.m. MST for a special, virtual launch event where we will unveil additional details, including the Center’s full name, and hear from ASU President Michael M. Crow, other university leaders, and Executive Director Ehsan Zaffar, about the inception and realization of this initiative. We will also share our plans for 2021 and opportunities for collaboration.


AZ unionist teachers threaten another walkout

January 2, 2021

Scare tactics continue despite wage hikes

Educrats in Gilbert and Chandler Unified School Districts are threatening sickouts when school resumes January 5, 2021. It’s what they do best, as evidenced by the fact that Arizona students are woefully under-educated, though they are authorities on global warming and recycling while being propagandized — both subtly and overtly, with leftism, and short-shrifted on the foundations of our democracy, history, math, geography  and other basics. They won’t be able to sign their names since cursive is deemed unessential.

This Dec. 30, 2020 statement from the Chandler Education Association, which proudly declares its affiliations* with the AEA (AZ Education Association) and NEA (National Education Association unions) exemplifies the fact that too much is never enough for the teachers who walked out on over 840,000 students for nearly two weeks as they demanded a 20 percent wage increase for their part-time jobs. Gov. Doug Ducey foolishly capitulated, but even that wasn’t enough. This past November their allies put the unconscionable Proposition 208, deceptively titled, ”Invest in Education Act,” that incorporated an irrevocable tax “on the rich” which includes small business owners already struggling during the COVID-19 virus. It passed.

The Federalist headlines its excellent exposé, “Government Teachers’ Unions Unveil New COVID-19 Demand: Pay Us For Doing Nothing.” It exemplifies the demands of the Gilbert and Chandler educrats.

Arizona students are doing even worse on tests than their previously low scores. More than half who took the 2019 AzMERIT tests failed — for the FIFTH year in a row! This is the educrats’ highly touted program that measures what should be proficiency in student ability to comprehend basic math and reading skills. To conceal the unfathomable failure rate, though prepping specifically for the test, they simply changed the test name to AzM2.

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. 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. The Goldwater Institute joined the Arizona Chamber of Commerce in opposing slippery Prop. 208. These are  the lengthy lists of organization and elected leaders who stood in opposition to Prop. 208.

The dumbing down of Americans: Lincoln no longer an icon

December 21, 2020

President U.S. Grant had his statue toppled by undereducated mobs

First a brief historical review:

The American Civil War was fought from April 12, 1861 – May 9, 1865.

According to revised calculations by historian J. David Hacker, an estimated 750,000 soldiers died in the war. It was fought to end slavery in the southern states, which responded by seceding from the United States, after the election of President Abraham Lincoln who was committed to ending the abhorrent practice.

The war ended with the surrender of the southern (Confederate) forces, to the Union army. Slavery was officially abolished by the Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, passed by congress in 1865.

The most lasting accomplishments attributed to President Lincoln are the preservation of the Union, the vindication of democracy, and the end of slavery. General Ulysses Grant led the Union Army as Commanding General and was later elected President of the United States serving 1869 -1877. Both Lincoln and Grant were Republicans.

These facts are known to Americans who are forty or older. They can recite the Preamble to the Constitution and the Pledge of Allegiance, know the words to the National Anthem, and that Abraham Lincoln was responsible for the Emancipation Proclamation.

Today in San Francisco, none of those deeds matter.  Abraham Lincoln is described as “not demonstrating the black lives mattered to him,” and is no longer deserving of having a high school named in his honor.

Jeremiah Jeffries, the man behind the move to rename 44 of San Francisco’s schools, is a first grade teacher who was influenced by his parents — both prominent members of the Nation of Islam — who set up their own Islamic school, the Sister Clara Muhammad School that serves a black Muslim population.

The Nation of Islam has long been defined as an organized hate group for its blatantly racist, virulent anti-Semitic, anti-homosexual teachings and inflamed rhetoric of black superiority over whites.


Chandler AZ teachers boycott, show fake commitment to kids

December 12, 2020

Following a 20 percent shakedown pay increase after a 2018 debilitating strike and recent passage of an absurd ballot measure giving Arizona’s  part-time teachers (do you get a three-month summer vacation and lengthy holidays from your job?) even more money, 349 teachers in Chandler Arizona participated in  a “sick out” Friday, demanding the district return to virtual learning after winter break. Read the demand letter sent to board members and district officials. Parents who want their students back in school, were not treated to this missive.

The district’s website grandly states its mission, “To empower all students with the knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to excel in college, career and life.” Achieving the basic goal of knowledge and skills is an impossibility when the far left Biden supporting union member teachers,* exemplifying an “attitude” of hostility, walk off their jobs demanding to implement “virtual learning” from home, a system which has been proven an abysmal failure.

On Friday, December 12, 349 educrats were out of their classrooms, compared to 244 one week ago. The district claimed it filled the vacancies with a substitute pool consisting of “deans, assistant principals, teacher specialists.” Students’ learning consisted of being taught by example that not doing your job in violation of a contractual agreement is acceptable.

Proposition 208, implementing an education funding farce incorporating an irreversible and massive tax increase dedicated to additional school funding as student achievement continues to plummet, was passed on the November 2020 ballot. The Goldwater Institute exposes its detrimental effects on our state and economy. Arizona is now among the top 10 states with highest income tax along with California and New York. It will negatively affect small businesses, harming our already struggling economy in a COVID-19 era.
