Desperate dems seek to upend SCOTUS as diversion from their own failures

May 10, 2022

Biden’s handlers downplay, divert from economic crisis as midterm elections loom

The ginned up mobs threatening U.S. Supreme Court justices at their private residences and their venerated workplace are not serendipitous. Chief Justice John Roberts issued this press release explaining the driving force behind the unprecedented harassment. It is the result of a leaked draft document written by Justice Samuel Alito — his own opinion on Roe v. Wade, which has no independent legal standing — has been intentionally blown out of proportion to divert attention from the myriad actual failures of the Biden administration.

Established by the U.S. Constitution, the Supreme Court was created with the passage of the Judiciary Act of 1789. The respected institution is the foundation of our democracy.

Suddenly, it has become a political football being kicked around by democrats desperate to divert attention from the worst economy in decades. Americans are besieged by shortages of basics such as food, housing, gas, and even vanishing baby formula — accompanying continually soaring prices, leaving Americans stunned, irate and alarmed.

Democrats facing the midterm elections are rightfully fearful of sweeping losses as the economy and now the stock market is in an epic fail. On Monday, gold dropped $27. This morning Barron’s Financial News runs this lethal headline, “The S&P 500 Has Gotten Crushed. It Could Drop Another 14%.”

According to the deep thinkers in the democrat party, the best way to skirt the problems that plague them is to employ the classic magic sleight of hand trickery of “Look here, not there,” deflection as they attempt to blame all of their failures on Republicans. The desperate scheme is not gaining traction among Americans who are unable to escape the daily reality of Bidenflation. The facts of President Trump’s Unprecedented Economic Boom stand in stark contrast.

Expansion of parental rights in education belittled in local newspaper

May 3, 2022

Duplicity reigns at leftist Arizona Republic

Rating prominent placement in the Valley & State section is a report headlined, “These contentious education bills now law.”

The report begins with these words:

“Two controversial education bills that would create procedures for parents to review library books and allow parents to sue if they believe a school has violated their access to a student’s records were signed into law by Gov. Doug Ducey.” 

The slippery, agenda-driven reporter obviously means “their” child rather than “a” child’s student records.  This deceit is standard operating procedure at the Hillary-endorsing, open-border promoting, failing newspaper.

Reporter Yana Kunichoff, a Chicago transplant, cites House Bill 2161 and House Bill 2439 as examples of what she views as egregious parental overreaches that warrant the descriptive words “controversial” and “contentious.”

If you are among the few who still subscribe to this overpriced, putrid garbage masquerading as news…Cancel! Tired of having your intelligence insulted? Cancel! Call 1-800-332-6733. You’ll get someone in the Philippines who is paid 50% less than an American-based employee as the dying newspaper tries to keep costs down.

Bible vs. Big Bro Joe

April 29, 2022

Light bulbs, toilets not the purview of the federal government

According to Genesis 1:14, the first book of the Bible, “On the fourth day of creation, God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years.”

Obviously God believed adequate light was crucially important.

That is inconsequential to frail Joe Biden’s handlers who have indicated they are phasing out incandescent light bulbs in favor of lighting they prefer, intended, they claim, to conserve energy. This will not be an option, but a mandate. Homeowners will have no choice in the matter, regardless of what they prefer in their own homes. This invasion of our freedoms was given excellent coverage in, “Why Light Bulbs Sum Up The Complete And Total Failure Of Liberalism,“when it initially surfaced. Barack Obama was desiring to focus on Climate Change legislation.

We’ve been down this leftist road before. Bill Clinton mandated low flush toilets, which required two flushes to completely clear the bowl, in direct opposition to the stated water saving purpose. Dems are bonded to promoting perceptions rather than utilizing common sense.

And who is Biden’s latest Department of Energy hire? Sam Brinton, a nonbinary drag queen — ‘an asset,’ say queer activists, as reported by Yahoo! Life.

In the face of historic inflation that is gut-punching American families struggling to make ends meet, impacting basics, such as food, housing, utilities and gas in your tank, the Department of Energy has announced new rules that change the definition of general service lamps and set a minimum standard of 45 lumens for light bulbs that meet a revised definition. Once the new rules are in effect, manufacturers will be required to sell only energy-efficient light bulbs. Preposterously, this sleigh of hand tries to convince Americans we will save $100 yearly, while a single loaf of bread has risen in price by over $5.19 according to this scrollable Consumer Price Index, via the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Citing unsubstantiated figures in 2009, Barack Obama claimed the new efficiency standards he promoted for lamps “would result in substantial savings between 2012 and 2042, saving consumers up to $4 billion annually, conserving enough energy to power every U.S. home for 10 months, reducing emissions equal to the amount produced by 166 million cars a year, and eliminating the need for as many as 14 coal-fired power plants.”

A prolific liar, Obama was banking on the fact that the majority of those who heard his message would no longer be above ground using energy.

Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson’s fundraising duplicity exposed

April 23, 2022

Who’da believe the far left local newspaper gets something right?

Seeing Red AZ recently posted, “Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson: AZ Gov candidate, re-invents herself,” exposing the gubernatorial candidate’s duplicity as the well-connected insider falsely portrays herself as a “political outsider.”

Now comes a bombshell newspaper report, headlined, “Karrin Taylor Robson drops controversial fundraising tactic after questions about refunds to donors.” It reveals disreputable techniques employed by her campaign to place people, often senior citizens, who unwittingly used pre-checked boxes to make a donation recurring on a repetitive list that continued to take money from their accounts. Rather than opting in to make habitual future donations, contributors had to opt-out. As much as we would cringe linking to the far left, failing publication, the reveal of Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson’s shady fundraising techniques would be worthy, however it is available only “for subscribers.”

The newspaper report deceptively states, ”Fundraising pages show Taylor Robson was following Trump’s playbook by using pre-checked boxes and indirect language about recurring donations. Her fundraising pitches in texts and on web pages also sometimes invoked Trump or other high-profile politicians not affiliated with Taylor Robson’s campaign.”

Though she is mischaracterized as being a Trump fan, nothing could further from the truth, as we noted in ”Trump in Phx today! Allies, foes will feel effect.” Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson was “unable to attend” the massive July, 24, 2021 Trump rally, citing “scheduling conflicts.”

The important takeaway is that the woman with a lengthy string of last names, and an elderly, mega-wealthy, indulgent developer husband, who has given her free reign to mostly self-fund her campaign is only on the up and up when her duplicitous fundraising scheme is revealed.

Don’t be misled by this political charlatan, who has suddenly made the chaotic border her main issue as she seeks to connect with conservative voters — something that has never previously been on her radar.

Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson: AZ Gov candidate, re-invents herself

April 14, 2022

Politically connected insider characterizes herself as an “outsider” as she reportedly drops $2 Million of her developer hubby’s money into her campaign

Karrin Taylor Robson is running for governor of the state of Arizona. The woman with a string of last names describes herself as a “political outsider,” as if having no knowledge of the state and the process of governance is a plus.

She omits some very pertinent information as she has begun flooding the airwaves with her campaign ads. The self-identified “outsider” comes from a prominent Arizona political family. Her father Carl Kunasek spent a decade in the Arizona House of Representatives prior to moving over to the Arizona Corporation Commission. During his time in the state Senate, Kunasek was the Senate President and oversaw the farcical Court of Impeachment proceedings against conservative Gov. Evan Mecham. They were instigated from the day of his inauguration by now imprisoned murderer, homosexual activist, and high-dollar dem donor Ed Buck.

Following that debacle, Carl Kunasek was defeated in his next senate bid, slickly moving on to a term on the Arizona utility rate-setting Corporation Commission. Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson’s brother Andy was elected to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors where he remained from 1997 to 2016. 

She self-identifies as the Founder and President of Arizona Strategies, “a premier land use strategy and real estate development company headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona.” Her brother Andy, identified as a “Principal” in the company, boasts his “government experiences have prepared him to assist Arizona Strategies clients as they navigate the political and regulatory environments of the modern world.”

To characterize herself as a political novice is absurd. 

Reacquaint yourself with the unsavory actions in this post, titled, “Regent Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson supports huge raises for overpaid university presidents.”  Previously the Regents unanimously voted Arizona’s universities (ASU, UofA and NAU) will charge illegal alien students a non-resident tuition rate that is less expensive than the out-of-state rate they has been expected to pay. Of interest, is the fact that she now characterizes herself as wanting to rebuild and complete the border wall that has been dismantled by the Biden administration.

Walls finally closing in on corrupt Hunter Biden

April 12, 2022

…despite his aunt tying to blame GOP, Pres. Trump

Joe Biden’s less than exemplary son, Hunter, is clearly in a heap of trouble and it’s becoming more difficult to lay the blame off on various extraneous sources. The leftwing media, doing its best to obfuscate, is rattled as more information is revealed about the depth of Hunter’s involvement in lucrative foreign deals for which he had no credentials other than his last name and his inherited arrogance.

Hardly a paragon of virtue, Hunter is a cocaine addict and alcoholic. He was discharged from the Army Reserves after repeated relapses. He also tried in vain to get out of paying child support for a daughter he fathered with a stripper while living with his dead brother’s widow.

His nefarious dealings including Chinese, Russian and Ukrainian connections were revealed following the release of emails on the damaged laptop Hunter left at a computer repair store in Delaware. The evidence has since been authenticated along with bank records and other documents uncovered by Senate investigators, revealing a high-dollar money trail that flowed from foreign interests to Hunter and Joe Biden’s brother, James, and which now appears to be central to an ongoing Justice Department criminal investigation.

The New York Post has boldly reported on the nefarious dealings, as seen early on in this October 14, 2020 issue titled, “Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad.” Papa Joe was repeatedly referred to by his facilitator  son as “The Big Guy.”

Hunter, who spoke no Ukrainian and lacked any experience in energy was worth $50,000 a month as a board member on Burisma Holdings. His only asset was the ability to provide access to his then-VP father.

Yahoo! News, hardly a bastion of conservatism, headlines its latest report, “New Hunter Biden revelations raise counterintelligence questions.”

Hunter’s aunt Valerie Biden Owens, Joe Biden’s sister, has dismissed the notion that her nephew’s entanglement in murky foreign business dealings is problematic for the first family, bizarrely claiming allegations of corruption and ethical malfeasance are nothing more than political attacks by former President Donald Trump and his supporters.

Throughout his life Hunter Biden, now 52, has never had to accept responsibility for any of his nefarious actions. His obliging family has always covered for him. The latest evidence of corruption, with his feeble father now in the White House, signals the end of the road for Hunter, which is why his father’s 77-year-old sister — Joe’s longtime political campaign advisor — who has recently written a book titled, “Growing up Biden: A Memoir,” is now trying to provide Hunter shade.

Gender identity lessons invade N.J. 1st grade classrooms

April 11, 2022

This revealing editorial, “NJ gender-identity lessons for first graders prove parents were right to worry,” by Karol Marcowicz was prominently displayed in the New York Post over the weekend.

The disturbing lesson plans are being foisted upon young children, teaching them that their gender is malleable.

Randi Weingarten, the former president of the American Federation of Teachers, (AFT) wields tremendous clout as an AFL–CIO union leader and a lawyer. She is also a lesbian married to another woman as reported in Teachers for Choice, an organization that opposes government imposed medical mandates in order for any Americans — especially educators — to remain employed.  To no one’s surprise, Weingarten has long opposed charter schools and school choice.

The AFT was the first national union to endorse Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential primaries. These are the people who influence America’s students each and every weekday.

Open Secrets reveals teachers unions have steadily amped up their political involvement: From 2004 to 2016, their donations grew from $4.3 million to more than $32 million — an all-time high. Even more than most labor unions, they have little use for Republicans, giving democrats at least 94 percent of the funds they contributed to candidates and parties since as far back as 1990, where Open Secrets data begins. Check out where they see fit to place their considerable resources.

This is all important reading.

Pro abortion Colo. dem Gov. Polis legalizes death up until birth

April 10, 2022

“Equity” the trendy buzzword of the left, has no place in the implementation of the death of innocents 

The word “infanticide” is the only appropriate term for describing the bill signed into law this past week by Colorado Governor Jared Polis. “Health” is also a misappropriated word applied to the title.

Polis signed H.B. 22-1279, the “Reproductive Health Equity Act,” (read this brief summary) which the governor said “codifies a person’s fundamental right to make reproductive health-care decisions free from government interference.”

The appropriate time to make those “decisions” is prior to conception.

“In the State of Colorado, the serious decision to start or end a pregnancy with medical assistance will remain between a person, their doctor, and their faith,” Polis added in his statement. Dodging the fundamental facts, Polis did not clarify what faith condones murder of a preborn human baby up until the moment of its birth.

Note the word “woman” has been replaced by the politically correct “person,” though only women are biologically able to conceive, carry a baby and give birth. The Act specifically states, “A fertilized egg, embryo or fetus does not have independent or derivative rights under the laws of this state.”

Polis is married to Marlon Reis, another man, described as an animal rights activist — a passion that does not extend to human children. They are now the parents of two young children whose mothers made the loving decision to allow their babies to live, something Polis clearly abhors. The deadly abortion industry thrives under dems. The following video reveals those considered “human weeds” and “genetically inferior races,” were key to Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger’s abortion mission. It was originally posted April 1, 2015 in our post, “Ted Cruz is no Barry Goldwater — Thank God!” which drew the pro-life/pro-abortion distinction between them.

Soft on child porn criminals judge confirmed to SCOTUS

April 8, 2022

Three Republicrats vote to confirm radical left judge

The U.S. Senate voted 53-47 Thursday (April 7, 2022) to confirm Biden nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson as an associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. Despite her tenure on the D.C. District Court where was known to be soft on child pornographers, she was cheered by the left as “historic,” since she is the first black female to hold that post. That fact, over which she has no control, supersedes all else.

This senate listing shows the vote total, broken down by the name and party affiliation of each individual senate member and their home state. You’ll notice three Republicrats broke ranks to vote with the democrats to confirm the radically leftist woman who was unable to define the meaning of the word “woman,” declaring, “I’m not a biologist.”

Those colluding with the dems are: Susan Collins (R-Maine); Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska); and Willard “Mitt” Romney (R-Utah). In June 2021, Romney previously voted ‘no’ on Jackson’s nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, but has since had a change of heart with the SCOTUS lifetime appointment.

Within three hours of the vote, Collins’ office announced she tested positive for COVID-19 virus, revealing there is a more powerful entity less than satisfied with Collins.

Utah’s Deseret News, in an article comparing Romney’s disappointing vote with that of Utah’s other Sen. Mike Lee, includes a tweet of Romney applauding alone as his GOP colleagues leave the chamber.

“I’d love to be able to support her. I can’t,” Lee was quoted as saying at a news conference with GOP senators Thursday.

Lee cited Jackson’s unwillingness to share her judicial philosophy during her confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last month. He said he found her judicial record “troubling,” especially her handing out “unconscionable and inexplicably” light sentences in child pornography cases.

Utah has a single ethical senator.

No one dies in Arizona: The era of magical language

April 7, 2022

Words matter…now, more than ever

Locals who read obituaries have noticed a new phenomenon. Arizonans don’t die. They “pass away.” As language gets softened to obscure realities, we no longer are invaded by illegal aliens. They have morphed into “migrants.” Problems have mysteriously evaporated. People now have “issues.” Contacting someone is now passé, foolishly replaced by “reaching out.” And sex? There are no longer men and women, as we learned from Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson who recently appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee for her confirmation hearing. During questioning from Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Jackson said she could not provide a definition for the word “woman” — maintaining it was not in her purview as a judge to answer that, absurdly adding, “I’m not a biologist.”

In a “woke” world there are no longer “pedophiles,” a word which we are told “stigmatizes” the perverts it describes. The preferred, more palatable term is now Minor Attracted Person, or MAP, despite the fact that they tragically ruin the lives of children. On March 14, SRAZ posted, “Education or indoctrination? Educrats push LGBTQ agenda, teacher sues,” which puts this lunacy into context.

Acceptance of thievery has gone mainstream in California following the 2014 passage of a referendum known as Proposition 47, which reduced the classification of most nonviolent property and drug crimes, including theft and fraud for amounts up to $950, from a felony to a non-prosecuted misdemeanor. Emboldened smash-and-grab criminals (video) enter high-end jewelry and other upscale stores, then boldly walk out with filched merchandise without fear of legal repercussions.

When democrats are elected, be assured the inmates are running the asylum. They condone lawlessness, destroy our education system, distort reality, impose ever increasing taxation and bludgeon our language for their own gains.

Take just two minutes to read the Heritage Foundation’s first-rate observation on politically correct vs. accurate terminology, in “Sorry, but the Accurate Legal Term is ‘Illegal Alien’,” by Hans von Spakovsky, Senior Legal Fellow. You’ll be smarter for having read it.

SRAZ posted “Orwell’s 1984: Alive and well with journalistic word police,” in 2010. It continues to be relevant today.
