Democrats’ bizarre bond with death

April 23, 2019

Earlier this month, Democrat New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy bragged about signing legislation legalizing doctor assisted suicide, becoming the eighth state to casually devalue life. In signing the bill, Murphy, a self-described “lifelong, practicing Catholic,” stated that while he was aware the Church opposed assisted suicide he was signing the bill into law regardless.

The bill was co-sponsored by Assemblyman John Burzichelli and Senator Nick Scutari, both….you guessed it…Democrats.

New Jersey joins other assisted suicide-condoning states with Democrat governors including California, Colorado, Hawaii, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.  Vermont is the stand alone with a Republican chief executive to sign assisted suicide legislation.  

 It’s a slippery slope. Newly-born life has been shockingly devalued by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, another Democrat, who condones infanticide via post-birth abortion saying it‘s a decision to be made by a mother and her provider.  Northam, a medical doctor, is even more reprehensible, since his pre-political career has been as a pediatric neurologist. Although he condones death for innocent babies, he opposes the death penalty for the most horrific criminals, who have committed capital offenses.

Watch this astonishing video of Northam’s interview on CNS News.

Appearing on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor,” program Northam defended the 40-week abortion bill saying, “If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

New York’s leftist Gov. Andrew Cuomo celebrated signing into law abortion up until birth. Watch this Fox and Friends video featuring New York Archbishop, Cardinal Timothy Dolan discussing how Democrats changed their previous abortion rhetoric from “safe, legal and rare” to what has now morphed into “dangerous, enforced and frequent.”

 Cuomo has gone to the mat banning single use of plastic bags, which he prioritizes over human life.

Foolish do-gooders aid and abet illegal invasion

April 22, 2019

Righteous absurdity of the left

The Easter Sunday edition of the local newspaper devoted front page coverage, including two jump pages, to a 74-year-old local grandmother who opens her small condo to hordes of illegal aliens. The article is headlined, “We are called to welcome strangers…Arizonan opens home, heart to asylum seekers.” A more fitting title would be, “Misguided do-gooder* aids and abets illegal invasion.”

Her home is described as “spotless” although the photos belie that depiction. Truth on any level simply has no relevancy when the topic is illegal aliens. Imagine a neighbor harboring criminals steps away from your home. Yet she and others working in concert with their churches, are extolled for feeding, clothing and temporarily housing Central American illegals now breaching our border by the 100‘s of thousands as they caravan through facilitating Mexico. The illegals, referred to as “guests,” are coddled until they are able to fan out cross the United States and access taxpayer-funded benefits. Any children they have once here are automatically American citizens based on flawed interpretations of the Fourteen Amendment, able to exploit absurd chain migration policies to bring in other relatives.

A pastor acknowledges not all of his congregants are happy with his church’s involvement, with some concerned that “publicity could lead to anti-immigrant protests from so-called patriot groups, which have occurred at other churches.”

Understand that if you believe in legal immigration and respect for the law, you are on the wrong side of this issue and your patriotism is open to question.

These brief insights aim to give our readers a sample of what the increasingly radical left-wing newspaper pushes as it attempts to make aiding criminality an act of faith-based decency. The failing Arizona Republic expends its last gasps of breath struggling to normalize the abnormal from deviancy to criminality, but is fooling no one but itself — evidenced by the fact that subscriptions for the anorexic, poor excuse for a newspaper continue to plummet. Parent company Gannett Co. Inc. continues to fail and has been the subject of hostile takeover bids as profit and revenue fall short of estimates.

For a cogent view on the impending prospects of such irrational tactics, read “Amnesty: Bad Policy, Even Worse Politics,by Bradley Betters — posted on American Thinker.

Mark Kelly: Dem $enate challenger’s big con

April 16, 2019

Mr. Gabby Giffords, a deceptive, hypocritical gun disdaining Democrat, also know as Mark Kelly, is reportedly steering clear of corporate PAC money as he wages his fledgling campaign for the U.S. Senate. Republican Martha McSally, who formerly represented AZ CD 2 in the U.S. House, currently holds that post, though she will have to run again in 2022.

Kelly has placed himself in a precarious position with the local newspaper, which never sees a leftist it doesn’t deem worthy of support. His facile two-step on corporate funding has forced the Hillary Clinton-endorsing newspaper to headline a report on Kelly with these words, “Mark Kelly shuns corporate PACs, but his ties with corporate money are more complicated.”

“More complicated”? The failing newspaper could have saved space and ink by simply printing “deceitful.”

Leftist Act Blue — akin to MoveOn.org, part of a syndicate of radical George Soros funded groups masquerading as “grassroots” organizations — unequivocally declares, “Mark Kelly is rejecting corporate PAC money.”

In this campaign video posted on Twitter, Kelly damns the money that traditionally has funded political campaigns claiming it “divides us” and “poisons our democracy.”

Mark Kelly’s campaign rhetoric is crafted to give him an aura of high mindedness, but don’t be fooled into thinking he actually rejects money from business interests. He’s just another double-talking Democrat saying whatever he thinks it takes to win an election.

Kelly held a stealth fundraiser in Washington, D.C. in March. It was later revealed to be hosted by lobbyists whose corporate clients include Comcast, Exxon Mobil and Chevron, Wall Street banks such as JPMorgan Chase, defense industry giant Lockheed Martin and the massive pharmaceutical lobbying group PhRMA. Walmart, numerous health care, real estate, securities companies and sport franchises were represented — all of whom were kept under wraps by hypocrite Mark Kelly.

What Kelly does and says, as he makes these assertions while corporate lobbyists are raising increasing amounts of money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) bear no resemblance to each other. Although Mark Kelly has never previously run for office, the Obama cohort is as much of a charlatan as any seasoned Democrat politico.

Until his duplicity was exposed, Kelly continued to earn money on the speakers circuit from groups aligned with business interests, making an average of $25,000 per speech for presentations made through the Keppler Speakers bureau. He gives the same speech, merely filling in the blanks pertaining to the group he’s addressing and city he’s appearing in. Mark Kelly must have something to recommend him, but he does a commendable job keeping whatever it is concealed.

Second Amendment supporters should be aware Kelly heads a gun control group, “Americans for Responsible Solutions.” Mark Kelly is nothing more than a slippery leftist with zero credentials


#REDSforEd teachers followed actual dunce, Noah Karvelis

April 12, 2019

For many Arizona parents, the anger over their children’s teachers abandoning them and sneering at their contractual obligations as they went out on strike for over a week, still rages. The bond of trust was irretrievably broken as they deserted over 840,000 students while over demanding a 20% pay increase for their part-time employment.

Newly elected Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman boasted she “proudly voted to walk out” with her fellow #REDSforEd striking teachers as they followed Socialist Pied Piper Noah Karvelis a 24-year-old hip hop music teacher and avowed Socialist. Hoffman, whose own teaching credentials are paper thin, says she was “inspired by unity within the movement.”

Not only are these educrats intent on dumbing down Arizona students, ironically Noah Karvelis is now being exposed as also being a failed student himself.

Breitbart News reports Karvelis only holds a “provisional” teaching certificate, having failed to complete the required coursework and pass tests on the U.S. Constitution and the Arizona Constitution — documents on which he places no value. Popular KFYI-550 AM conservative talk show host James T. Harris, previously outed Karvelis‘ insufficient credentials.

Important to remember is the fact “underpaid” teachers, who work 81/2 months a year, are able to support the far left teacher’s unions* to the tune of $millions a year, earmarked for Democrat candidates and liberal causes.

These same people are undermining the values conservative parents try to instill in their children. Karvelis’ résumé states he served as campaign manager to elect leftist Kathy Hoffman and was also a volunteer for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. Additionally Karvelis has been a political consultant and staff writer for the Progressive Times, which defines itself on its masthead with this banner: “Progressive, independent journalism for the political revolution.” His mantra is, Teaching is political, and silence is complicity. Karvelis, a young white male. is also a self-hater.

This is akin to putting Marxists in charge of educating our children. Noah Karvelis, and those who march to his extremist tune, are dangerously influencing America’s youth, steering them away from democracy that flourishes in our representative Republic, and into the killing fields of Socialism.

Rare truth was contained in the words of then-retiring NEA legal counsel Bob Chanin. Listen to his admission carefully.(brief video.) He admits that the unions are about money, power, and a leftist agenda —- clearly stating “It’s not because we care about children.

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. 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.

Falling prey to the teacher’s demands was foolishness personified. Akin to attempting to bribe a mobster, no amount will ever be enough.

Arrogant, irrelevant Jeff Flake craves Dem 2020 win

March 31, 2019

It takes an unparalleled level of conceit for a single term U.S. Senator —- unable to run for reelection due to 18-percent approval ratings in his home state —- to pompously bloviate about the President of the Untied States, and think he is influential.

But that’s exactly the pathetic behavior insignificant Jeff Flake, now a paid defector at a left-wing network, engages in to generate some publicity for himself. The latest is a rehash of his 2016 pre-election rhetoric, when he went anywhere a camera and mic were located to state Donald Trump couldn’t and shouldn’t be elected, and neither he nor his family would vote for him.  His disgraceful antics mirrored those of his mentor, John McCain.

Flake obviously isn’t keen on the best economy, highest employment and lower taxes Americans have enjoyed in decades, excellent judicial appointments —- two on the Supreme Court —- and historic inroads with Communist despots in China and North Korea. As an orchestrating member of McCain’s notorious Gang of Eight, his focus has long been on instituting destructive open border policies.

The appropriately named Flake would rather grouse, though cameras need to be trained on him when he engages in his anti-Trump barrages.

Appearing at a decidedly leftist Democrat forum billed as the “Intelligence Squared” debate in New York City, Flake said: “I think that four years is difficult enough — to unravel some of the damage that has been done internationally to our role, to our leadership position. We cannot — should not go another four years.”

“Yes … and this notion, this narrative that’s been built up, that Donald Trump is the only one that can cobble together the Electoral College and win is just a fallacy,” stated Flake —- a man keenly aware of his own inability to win reelection.

When the moderator asked, “Are you willing to lose a cycle for the Republican Party because of the principles that you’re arguing,” the Flakester unhesitatingly responded, “Oh, yes. Yes.”


Selling out is Robert Robb’s job security

March 25, 2019

In a recent commentary, Robert Robb, the libertarian leaning, once sole deviant opinion writer among the braying gaggle of leftists at Arizona’s newspaper of record, leapt like a lemming off the extremist cliff. His precipice plunge was titled, “Elizabeth Warren is right: The Electoral College has got to go.”

He’s lost his way down the murky liberal alley more frequently as former colleagues have increasingly been replaced with ASU Cronkite Journalism students, who have neither editors nor offices. In September 2018, we wrote,AZ Republic’s Robb grovels, earns his pay on AZ Senate race,”

In response to the virulent anti-Trump spew his superiors routinely dole out, Robb’s recent submissive offering was titled, “Trump’s irresponsible budget.” Barack Obama was never the recipient of such an assault, though his spending eclipsed all previous presidents combined. It’s not difficult to imagine the meeting with editorial page editor Phil Boas, and the instructions being handed to Robb, with that pathetic commentary as the result.

Now Robb’s outdone himself, singing George Soros’ mantra of the National Popular Vote (NPV). His most recent opinion piece is titled….brace yourself ….“Elizabeth Warren is right: The Electoral College has got to go.”

Surely Robb is aware that this farce has become a front burner item for the Democrats. He’s no dummy, as demonstrated by his use of the word “fecund” (which we had to look up), as he described Democrat presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren. He is, however, all too willing to sing for his supper.

As if by providence, SRAZ wrote a post on the very topic last Friday, taking a much different view than the skew offered by Robert Robb. We place more value on our Nation’s Founders and our U.S. Constitution than in either Socialist billionaire George Soros or Elizabeth Warren. Our piece is headlined, “Desperate Dems embrace NPV absurdity.”

Soros wants to hijack our presidential elections allowing a few highly populated and left-leaning states such as California, New Jersey, New York and Illinois to have a disproportionate influence in our elections. He has also been pouring $millions into under-the-radar campaigns influencing local district attorney races in numerous states to reconfigure the American justice system to his liking, as reported by POLITICO.

NPV is partnered with FairVote, a project of the Soros-funded Center for Voting and Democracy. Along with advocating for the flawed national popular vote for president, it also sets as a goal lowering the voting age to 16.

Robert Robb should know that selling one’s soul to the left is the ultimate degradation. Conservatives no longer have high expectations of him, but he should have them for himself.


Desperate Dems embrace NPV absurdity

March 22, 2019

The National Popular Vote has emerged among the latest schemes of Democrat politicians. They are also enamored with open borders and lowering the voting age to 16. Now that marijuana is mainstreamed, desperate Dems see a clear pathway to winning elections…the Constitution be damned.

Donald Trump’s 2018 sweeping presidential victory, which dazed the Democrats like a direct hit of a lightening bolt has made them eager to explore every absurdity to gain control. If it takes mind numbed teens, illiterate in American history and our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, who have never paid a bill or taxes to fulfill their dream, Dems are onboard giving them the vote. Obliterating Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and allowing all comers to invade the United States is an integral part of the plan, since they will be low hanging fruit ripe for Democrat picking. Why should citizenship matter? Democrat candidates are also hoping to pack the Supreme Court by inflating the number of leftist justices. Read the history of that scam attempted by Democrat President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937 in the last two paragraphs of this post.

In 2016 Breitbart News headlined, “MoveOn.org Petition Demands: ‘Abolish the Electoral College,” which laid the groundwork for this George Soros backed movement.

Our Founders specifically included the Electoral Vote to forestall the inherent dangers of what James Madison called “the tyranny of the majority.” This Heritage Foundation commentary, Preventing “The Tyranny of the Majority by Edwin J. Feulner is listed as a two minute read. You won’t spend a more enlightening two minutes today.

Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution grants the power to elect the president and vice president to the states through the system known as the Electoral College. Under the Constitution, the highest-ranking U.S. officials elected by the direct popular vote of the people are the governors of the states.

The Electoral College gives smaller and rural states with lower populations an equal voice. If the popular vote alone decided elections, presidential candidates would have no need to visit those states or consider the needs of rural residents in their policy platforms. The Electoral College dynamics require candidates to get votes from multiple states — large and small — ensuring that the president addresses the needs of the entire country. America’s Founders, in their wisdom, also wanted the Electoral College system to enforce the concept of federalism — the division and sharing of powers between the state and national governments.

There are 538 possible electoral votes. 270 electoral votes are required for a candidate to win the electoral college vote. This was the 2016 election breakdown. With the National Popular Vote, Hillary Clinton would be sitting in the Oval Office.

Declared and still exploring Democrat presidential candidates might be adversaries, but they are unified in their desire to gut our Constitution. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, (D-Mass) and Bob O’Rourke, (D-TX); support doing away with the Electoral College. Sen. Cory Booker, (D-N.J); has expressed a desire to increase the number of justices on the Supreme Court and term limit them. Bob also supports expanding the high court.  Sen. Kamala Harris, (D-CA) supports uncontrolled illegal immigration and free education and healthcare for all. Socialist Bernie Sanders (S-VT) ditto. Like her fellow candidates, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, (D- NY) is for whatever sucker punches the GOP and takes out President Trump.

The U.S. Constitution provides for a separation of powers, dividing the federal government into three distinct branches to ensure no individual or group will have too much power: Legislative (makes laws), Executive (carries out laws) and Judicial (interprets laws) — operate independently.

It should be abundantly clear by now that Democrats have no use for the Constitution.
