Lawlessness takes root in Dem run cities & Update

June 12, 2020

America’s education establishment, controlled by Leftists, bears responsibility      

As Antifa political thugs take over American cities rioting, looting and now toppling historic monuments, it’s important to recognize that many ot the anarchists who align with the group identify as communists and socialists. Yet their goal far supersedes advancing a political agenda. Instead, they are committed to obliterating those they consider fascists, — mainstream American citizens, often conservative Republicans.

Under-educated in today‘s far left public schools, they abhor law enforcement, our legal system and public institutions, and justify using violence to prevent law abiding Americans from exercising such constitutionally enshrined First Amendment rights as free speech or public assembly. As far back as 2016, the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities asdomestic terrorist violence.”

Many are young, members of Generation Z, lacking memory of events we considered transformative, such as September 11, 2001 and not having it, or basic American history included in school curriculum. In seizing six city blocks of Seattle, (Hannity video) including the now abandoned police department, which they have renamed CHAZ* (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone) the mob is now in control. 

Their List of Demands is preposterous, illustrating their abysmal lack of understanding the fundamentals of what has made America a beacon of hope since the Declaration of Independence was ratified on July 4, 1776.

Though many Americans are riveted, watching the raw hubris exemplified by aggression and hostility to what has made America great, focus should be directed to the fundamental causes.  Teachers unions have been donors to the radical left for decades and the proliferation of fatherless homes have corresponded to the increase in crime.

To more fully comprehend the depth of the left’s tentacles into the educational demise, read the enlightening,Witness to Public Schools Brainwashing,” posted on American Greatness. It’s an outstanding insight.

*As of June 14, 2020, the lawless area has been renamed Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) by the mobsters who have not only not been forcibly removed from the 6-block area, but the city of Seattle has caved in to their outrageous demands providing no inducement to leave. Instead of removing these lawless squatters, the radical leftist city leaders, whose priorities are skewed, have brought in portable toilets and are supplying them with free food, as businesses in the multi-block area remain shuttered and their owners suffer.


UCLA Prof dismissed: denied black students grading leniency

June 11, 2020

Although Arizona abuts the state of California where the university system is under the direction of rabid leftist Janet Napolitano — formerly an appalling Arizona governor — don’t expect to see this astonishing story covered in the hemorrhaging subscriptions Arizona Republic. It doesn’t fit the narrative.

The UK’s Daily Mail, approximately 5,300 miles away, gave it prominence, since it is so outlandish as to warrant extensive coverage.

According to the Daily Mail, “The saga unfolded after students, who described themselves as ‘non-black allies,’ wrote to accounting professor Gordon Klein at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management, asking him to effectively cancel final exams for their black peers given the current civil unrest in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

The students demanded a ‘no-harm’ final exam intended to boost students’ grades, insisted on shortened exams and extended deadlines for final assignments and projects.

They absurdly wrote, in light of recent “traumas, we have been placed in a position where we must choose between actively supporting our black classmates or focusing on finishing up our spring quarter.”

“We believe that remaining neutral in times of injustice brings power to the oppressor and therefore staying silent is not an option,” they wrote. They followed the message up with threats.

 Prof. Klein replied, denying their request for special treatment. Read the entire article. including the petition signed by 20,000 students demanding his dismissal. The school complied, placing Prof. Klein on involuntary leave after students condemned him with the ultimate slur of being a “racist.”  He’s taught at the school for 39 years without incident, but that was before mob rule following the clearly unnecessary death of George Floyd, a career criminal, (rap sheets) who has morphed into a worshiped martyr.


No-news AZ newspaper filled with leftist drivel

April 19, 2020

Following the death of former AZ Governor Jane Hull, the gasping its own last breaths local newspaper put one of its ace reporters to work on two inane articles, “How state has mourned past governors” and “With Hull’s death, 4 former Arizona governors still alive.”

Andrew Oxford — whose twitter account is laden with anti-Trump and Pence contempt along with liberal doses of Republican bashing, while lavishing praise on Meet the Press’ leftist Chuck Todd — writes as though he expects to be filing obits of the “still alive” governors.  He no doubt has them pre-written.

Oxford credits Hull for “successfully pushing through a sales tax for schools,” which was unnecessary and fought due to the funding mechanisms already in place.*  Yet his slanted report neglects to mention her well known animus toward John McCain, she pointedly did not endorse for President in 2000, instead giving the nod to George W. Bush. 

One of his posts takes on Republican Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich. Oxford unambiguously shows his bias, writing “Arizona’s top prosecutor cannot go around suing whomever he wants.”

Oxford expresses concern that leftist propositions won’t file enough valid signatures to make the ballot since paid collectors are being hampered due to the Wujan Coronavirus pandemic.

 *Arizona has long had permanent education funding streams. 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, which apparently is never enough for the teachers who work 8½ months a year in addition to getting long Spring and Winter breaks not accorded to any other state workers. 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. When Arizona striking teachers abandoned over 840,000 students for nearly two weeks statewide in violation of their contractual agreements, Gov. Doug Ducey foolishly caved to their 20% pay hike demands, further emboldening them and their left-wing unions.

Leftist Dems are today’s Bolsheviks* indoctrinating our kids

April 11, 2020

America’s schools, from elementary through universities, are closed — replaced by online studies — due to the Wuhan Coronavirus pandemic that has upended our lives.

With many formerly busy parents now quarantined at home and suddenly thrust into the anxiety of joblessness, they are also presented with an opportunity to assess their children’s education system. Parents who have paid attention, understand all too well that what is passing for a public school education today, is all too frequently agenized, leftist propaganda, being instilled from the earliest grades, exemplified by Drag Queen Story Hour aimed at preschoolers.

In Arizona, public school teachers, in violation of their contractual agreements, went on strike demanding 20% pay hikes for their part-time jobs, appropriately wearing red T-shirts. They followed Noah Karvelis, an uncertified 24-year-old hip-hop music teacher, former Bernie Sander’s Arizona campaign coordinator and self-admitted Socialist as they abandoned over 840,000 students for nearly two weeks. For background, read #REDS for ED: Union thugs demand more $ for less.

With these unsettling facts in mind, we bring youLenin’s Train Goes Chugging through American Educationby Bruce Deitrick Price, posted on American Thinker.

Reading Price’s revealing report will provide an insight into the appeal Socialist/Communist Bernie Sanders aroused among America’s youthful voters. Lacking any basic comprehension of either economics or American and World history, his vacuous promises of wiping away their educational debt and providing them with free health care held appeal. Few have any comprehension of the death and misery brought on by the politics that are the antithesis of freedom and rights we enjoy as Americans.

Abdul-Jabbar suffers from acute case of TDS

March 23, 2020

Trump Derangement Syndrome claims another victim

It’s been fifty years since basketball great Lew Alcindor, Jr. shook off his father’s name, converted to Islam and re-christened himself Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He obviously didn’t realize he was honoring Arab slave traders as he rejected his American name. He also boycotted the 1968 Summer Olympics by opting not to try out for the U.S. Men’s Olympic Basketball team, which went on to capably win the gold medal. Abdul-Jabbar’s decision to shun the games was in protest of what he strangely regarded the unequal treatment of blacks in the United States, setting the stage for National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick to bend a knee rather than stand for the National Anthem decades later — though they both made $multi-millions and were idolized by fans.

This historical ignorance and rejection of America was, for a brief moment, voguish, as esteemed prize fighter Cassius Clay, Jr., also embraced Islam, ditched his father’s name and became Muhammed Ali.  He also used his new found faith as a cover for draft dodging during the Vietnam War. The ignorant Ali announced, “I ain’t got no quarrel with those Vietcong,” the communist troops aligned with ruthless dictator Ho Chi Minh, who was responsible for countless deaths in his own country and loss of life and limb of American servicemen trying to bring stability to those living under the brutal regime.

The lack of historical relevancy is worth noting since radical leftist Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has recently attacked President Donald Trump, comparing him to Nazis in Hunters Series, as reported in detail by Jay Maxson of NewsBusters. Abdul-Jabbar’s visceral Trump hatred spews like a geyser.  He also conveniently ignores the fact that the Nazi Third Reich tortured and slaughtered millions of minorities, including Jews, gypsies, and the infirm. Another pertinent fact that the black Muslim converts astonishingly disregard and as black conservative talk show host, columnist, author and lawyer Larry Elder pointed out in this column, “many know little to nothing about the vast role played by Arab and Muslim slavers in the African slave trade.”

Though the object of hero worship by fans of all races, Abdul-Jabbar was known to be rude to admirers and developed an arrogant penchant for insultingly reading the newspaper while giving interviews.

And who would have guessed that this historical revisionist actually graduated UCLA with a B.A in history?


Repackaged Communism makes a trendy comeback 

March 6, 2020

Diversity cozies up to radical politics

Despite the fact that there is an abundance of news in the state, nation and globally, the failing Arizona Republic newspaper, which obviously has generic pre-written articles ready for publication, gave this offensive doozy (we’re not providing a link to this ridiculous report by M&M averse, Lily Altavena) front page, above-the-fold headline placement:

“Students’ diversity not reflected in AZ,” with the sub-header declaring, “Most teachers are white, half of students aren’t.”

Diversity is always about race, never ideas. In the Trump-hating, Hillary-endorsing newspaper, the only ideas worthy of reporting are regressive,* leftist views.

Friday morning’s headline following his Phoenix campaign stop, “Sanders inspires ‘regular people,’” extols Marxist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, a self-identified Socialist who has routinely spoken of leading a “revolution.”  He’s even written books on the topic aimed at young Americans, Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution is based on his earlier book, Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In.

Beneath that Page One report is another, titled, “Young Latino voters are fired up about Sanders.” It describes a 21-year old college student brought here illegally “as a wide-eyed five-year-old” from Mexico by her illegal parents. She is enthused by Sanders because he promises her “a future where she no longer struggles to pay piles of bills for college tuition and doctor’s visits and one that aggressively tackles the threat of climate change to make sure the planet stays habitable.”

Former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker does an exceptional job describing Sanders politics in this commentary carried in the Washington Times,Bernie Sanders’ brand of socialism is communism.”

* SRAZ is waging a campaign against the word “progressive,“ which liberal extremists decided to use to make themselves appear forward thinking. They are not forward thinking, but are regressive on nearly every level. When conservatives use the word, “progressive,” they are playing directly into the hard left’s hands and doing their bidding. Regressive is a more appropriate description. Join us.


Socialist Sander’s NV win ignored by leftist AZ paper

February 23, 2020

War of the “F” words: “free” is more compelling than “facts”

What could be the reason Arizona’s leftwing, Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating newspaper’s ignored the Nevada caucus results? It opted instead to run a front page report on water not keeping up with growth in the state.

Bernie Sanders,78, an avowed Socialist, who recently suffered a serious heart attack, requiring two stents in his blocked coronary artery, won the Nevada Democrat caucus. His victory is being attributed to younger voters and Hispanics, who turned out in record numbers lured by promises of “free” government provided health care and making public colleges and universities tuition and debt free. He targeted Hispanic communities — which now make up nearly a quarter of the state — with Spanish language advertising.

Socialism has taken over the Democrat Party, due to the fact that schools no longer teach about its destructive impact, or that it is the leading man-made cause of death and misery in human existence.

Lee Edwards, Ph.D. writing for the Heritage Foundation, explains,THESE Are the Most Telling Failures of Socialism.” Take 4-minutes to read this outstanding commentary. Read it to or send it to your children and grandchildren.

They aren’t being exposed to these truths in public schools whose teachers are overwhelmingly radical union members supporting Democrats.*

Dire cost of “taxing the rich” even more

February 8, 2020

AZ Educrats ramp up new $1 Billion money grab

It’s trendy today to speak in terms of taxing the rich, making them pay their fair share. The problem is, they already do and then some. There are profound problems with the socialist agenda that rides astride “redistribution of wealth,” confiscating from those who play by the rules, educate themselves, take risks, and work long hours, to achieve their goals. There is a price to be paid, and if you’re not willing to pay it yourself, you shouldn’t resent those who are, because without them there would be no innovation or advancement. They are not the enemy, they are who we should aspire to emulate.

But Socialists, exemplified by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, running as Democrats for their party’s presidential nomination, are populating congress in growing numbers. They don’t even try to disguise their radical Socialist bond, despite the fact that the United States spend two generations fighting against the destructive system. They are smugly righteous about raising taxes on the “ultra wealthy,” making them “pay their fair share,” though wealthiest Americans pay disproportionately higher rates. In 2016, the top 1 percent of taxpayers accounted for more income taxes paid than the bottom 90 percent combined.

Economist Thomas Sowell previously wrote, “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty. The communist nations were a classic example, but by no means the only example.

In theory, confiscating the wealth of the more successful people ought to make the rest of the society more prosperous. But when the Soviet Union confiscated the wealth of successful farmers, food became scarce. As many people died of starvation under Stalin in the 1930s as died in Hitler’s Holocaust in the 1940s.

How can that be? It is not complicated. You can only confiscate the wealth [and income] that exists at a given moment. You cannot confiscate future wealth [or income] — and that future wealth [and income] is less likely to be produced [or earned] when people see that it is going to be confiscated.”

Arizona #REDsforEd educrats, who work part-time jobs, abandoned approximately 840,000 students statewide for nearly two weeks in 2018, when they went out on strike for a 20% pay increase, which they unconscionably received, are re-energizing their previously failed ballot initiative Invest In Education Act. Of course, the leftist Hillary-endorsing newspaper supports the ongoing and continually expanding $millions in taxation written into the initiative as “an investment we need to make,” ignoring the continual school bond and tax override elections. The latest fraud is another $1 Billion.

This is where the “underpaid” teachers choose to put their money.


ASU: Home of anti-Republican thuggery

February 7, 2020

This disturbing video showing an unhinged student carrying a backpack on the Arizona State University campus threatening to “Slash Republican throats!” is not getting the widespread coverage it deserves.

Students for Trump at ASU were manning an on-campus table when the incident occurred.

The video was posted by Charlie Kirk, founder & president of Turning Point USA and chairman of Students for Trump, as well as the author of the soon-to-be released book, “The MAGA Doctrine.”

Campus Reform (video) reports that former 6-term Sheriff Joe Arpaio running to win back his job from a Soros-supported Democrat is not immune to threats on ASU’s campus. “Antifa” thugs disrupted a recent event with Sheriff Arpaio. It was alleged that one of the disrupters drew a knife.

ASU police are a rare commodity as threats are issued during peaceful assemblies.

Don’t look for ASU President Michael Crow to address these growing problems. He’s awfully busy these days…counting his money. These figures don’t factor in his most recent salary hike.


Chandler Unified School Dist. defends radical educrat

January 30, 2020

Public school district emblematic of why charter schools are top rated

This report is so outrageous, it made national news with Breitbart News carrying the details,Arizona High School Teacher Accused of Associating Conservative Values with ‘Fascism

Radical left-wing indoctrination is alive and well in our taxpayer funded public schools.

A history teacher at Casteel High School in Queen Creek, Arizona, has been accused by students and parents of equating conservative values with fascism during a recent history class.

The unnamed female teacher emerges unscathed by the deceit and unconscionable historical revisionism she perpetrated by comparing Hitler to the modern-day Republican party.

The high school, which graduated its first class in 2019, allows this dishonest indoctrination to be propagandized to its students. Principal Jayson Phillips shows himself to be a weak administrator, giving a pass to the educrat.

U.S. News and World Report published its yearly list of top schools across the nation. Once again Arizona Charter Schools topped the list earning the Top Ten slots.

Arizona #REDSforEd public school teachers abandoned over 840,000 students statewide for nearly two weeks while following socialist Noah Karvelis, a 24-year-old unaccredited hip hop music teacher, as they went on strike in violation of their contractual agreements, demanding a 20% pay hike for their part-time jobs. They are now supporting a “tax the rich” socialist ballot scheme to receive ever more money for spewing radical indoctrination.

An important reminder: This is where the supposedly underpaid teachers choose to put their union dues money.* Be sure to scroll down to the ‘Party Split’ graph. 

Then take a moment to tune in to their longstanding agenda (brief video) clearly articulated as far back as 2009, that unequivocally spells out the views of the National Education Association regarding the children they are charged with educating. The words are spoken by Bob Chanin, the NEA legal counsel in a brief excerpt from his revealing retirement speech.
