…as Democrats prefer to impeach our President and leave southern border vulnerable

Tucson’s KVOA News 4 provides the grim statistics of gun violence perpetrated by members of drug cartels in the communities of Naco and Agua Prieta, Sonora, both of which are adjacent to Douglas, Arizona — located in Cochise County — in the southeastern-most corner of the state. View map below.

According to the report, a bloody gun battle in the border town of Agua Prieta claimed the lives of nearly a dozen people this past week. Six people were reportedly killed Friday with an unknown number wounded.

This high level advisory was posted by the Douglas Police Department.

Cochise County Sheriff Mark J. Dannels expresses “serious concern” regarding the ongoing violence, stating the “deputies are working with local, state and federal partners to monitor the situation.”

This is not happening in Afghanistan.  This war is on our southern border. Arizonans need to acknowledge that congressional Democrat inaction on providing funding for a wall is making all Americans vulnerable. Instead of providing security, Dems are instead focused on the politically motivated impeachment of our president, whom they claim engaged in “Russian collusion,” disproved by the Mueller Report, which entered in public record:

“The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

Yet this old saw, not border security, is the Democrats 2020 campaign issue.

Bill Clinton, 49, at the time, was impeached and disbarred for both lying and suborning perjury, but never removed from the Oval Office where he cavorted with 22-year-old White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.  He was elevated to icon status and his scandal-plagued, deceitful wife was endorsed for president in 2016 by the failing, far-left Arizona Republic newspaper.

AZ Fed. Dist. Judge becomes less lenient re: illegals

June 5, 2019

Back in 2005, there were few rational Arizona taxpayers who supported U.S. District Judge Raner C. Collins’ order imposing an astronomical penalty of $500,000 a day on the state if it failed to comply with his directive to “properly fund” English-language programs for Spanish-speaking students in the Tucson Unified School District. There were ESL (English as a second language) programs in place but they weren’t expansive enough to suit Collins.

In the intervening years, and newly on senior status, the Clinton appointee to the Federal District bench, has apparently mellowed. Based in Tucson, a major portal for illegals, Judge Collins has first-hand experience of the results of blatant disregard for our laws and sovereign border.

Fast forward to June 4, 2019 and we find Judge Collins in no mood to grant leniency to a facilitator and harborer of illegal aliens who unlawfully invaded the United States.

The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) which refers to illegals a meremigrants” or “undocumented immigrants,” expands the English language even further to designate defendant Scott Warren “a humanitarian aid volunteer,” working with the group No More Deaths. The simple answer to halting desert deaths in the extreme summer heat, is to stay home. The newspaper reporter dramatically refers to the desert as “vast and deadly.”

Warren, 36, arrested by Border Patrol Agents in January 2018, is being prosecuted for his crime and could face up to 20 years in prison on three felony charges. Additionally, he faces misdemeanor charges of trespassing. During the trial it was revealed Warren has been in communication with a Phoenix activist who gained notoriety for leading caravans of invaders through Mexico to the U.S. border last year.

Based on the illegals’ statements, Warren had given them meals, clothing and provided them a place to sleep. Whether he gently patted their furrowed brows, sang them lullabies and tucked them in as they rested was not specified.

Attorneys for Warren previously filed two motions to dismiss the charges against him. Last week, Judge Collins denied both motions, allowing the felony trial to proceed.

Bravo! Judge Collins!

Educrats team with Planned Parenthood to sexualize children

Cave Creek School District disguises kiddie porn as education

Wednesday’s post,May Day: Significant day for teachers to abandon students,” focused attention on the parallel between Arizona’s #REDSforEd* educrats who walked off their jobs last spring in violation of their contractual agreements  —  and their North and South Carolinian counterparts, who staged walkouts yesterday. 

The May Day timing of the strike was anything but coincidental, as noted by the World Socialist website, which specializes in incendiary and skewed rhetoric to fit its radically leftist agenda, evident by examining other articles on the site.

The report irrationally links American teachers to those in the countries of Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Morocco and the Netherlands where teachers have “struck against the non-payment of wages.” Here, the extortionist teachers, members of far left unions, get paid for abandoning their students and Gov. Ducey, after momentarily playing hardliner, eventually gifted them with a 20% salary hike — which they decided is not nearly enough for their part-time jobs.

All of their antics are infuriating, but the biggest inciter of parental and community rage should be reserved for the “Comprehensive Sex Education” in the process of being implemented in the Cave Creek School District in Arizona. SRAZ commenter “JCF” brought it to our attention, for which we are grateful. Exposing the truth about this insidiously provocative curriculum assists parents in shining a disinfecting dose of sunlight on the shocking agenda that the district and its partner, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider — are attempting to peddle to young children in grades 4 – 8.

It’s critically important to take time to read,Not In Our Schools: Stop the Planned Parenthood Invasion,” and pass it along to others. The graphic imagery being presented to young children is pornographic and normalizes deviancy. In no way is it educational.

Irresponsible silence on measles link to illegal invasion & Update

April 30, 2019

Blame game denies the facts as tuberculosis and hepatitis are also spiraling out of control in border states

It’s been a quarter of a century since measles was eliminated as a public health concern in the United States. It is now back — with vengeance — and the virulent outbreak has nothing to do with the so-called “anti-vaxers.”

The disease initially resurfaced in the border states of Arizona and California, quickly spreading elsewhere. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) would have us believe it was spread by unvaccinated people in Amish communities in Ohio and Missouri or in a predominantly Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn, New York — odd choices since both religious groups are self-contained.

As of this week over 700 cases have been confirmed in 22 states.

The CDC states, “Measles is still common in many parts of the world including some countries in Europe, Asia, the Pacific, and Africa.”

Noticeably missing from the list are the Central American countries of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, or our immediate “neighbor to the south,” Mexico. These are the countries that are flooding the United States with impoverished, uneducated invaders, bringing young children — frequently not their own, but used as facilitators — as they caravan by the hundreds of thousands, overwhelming border agents. The agents, with limited space to house them, are releasing them into border states, from which they fan out across the U.S.

This study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association: Pediatrics in 2014 found that 88% of measles cases in the country “were internationally imported or epidemiologically or virologically linked to importation.”

Only adherents to political correctness, who blandly refer to the invaders as “migrants,” would silence the truth and rush to blame two American religious groups that principally stay to themselves.

Ahead of her time, lawyer, author, activist and Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly (died: 2016) wrote, “Importing Third World Diseases,” in 2005.  Her ability to predict the future relating to the resurgence of previously eradicated diseases or introduction of new infectious scourges was uncanny. This is an important column that will add to your knowledge bank. Her impressive bio can be read here.

Conservative Review ran this report today detailing the thousands of illegals entering the United States with such highly contagious diseases as tuberculosis. The problem is real and it is urgent. We need the army at the southern border.

Border Patrol releasing thousands who were exposed to diseases like tuberculosis

The open-border supporting local newspaper headlines the rise in hepatitis cases. So far in 2019, there have been 212 cases in Arizona, which is higher than any yearly statewide total in more than a decade. State health officials expect that number to rise.

An outbreak of the viral liver disease began in November in the Tucson area and has spread to Maricopa County.

Never mentioning illegals in the coverage, the newspaper states,
“the cases are primarily among homeless and near-homeless individuals, as well as people who use illicit drugs.”

Pima County Health Department’s Deputy Director Paula Mandel is quoted as saying, “Hepatitis A is often known as “the poop disease” because it is transmitted through feces and can be easily spread when people do not have access to good hygiene and do not wash their hands after using the restroom. It’s a fecal-oral route,” Mandel said. “It takes such minute amounts.” Since Nov. 21, there have been 161 hepatitis A cases reported in Pima County. In comparison, Pima County had just five cases in all of 2017, It can also spread through contaminated food and water. People living on the streets and in homeless camps are particularly vulnerable.

San Diego, where illegals continue to breach the border, is also experiencing high rates of the highly contagious, potentially deadly infectious liver disease.

 

 


Scandal rocks AZ State University, Pres.Michael Crow slides

April 18, 2019

ASU’s Michael Crow’s salary exceeding $1.55 million in base pay and bonuses vaults him to nation’s top paid public university president

The local newspaper can’t get enough of Arizona State University President Michael Crow. It devotes numerous articles to extolling the virtues of the overpaid liberal,* who has put together programs providing financial assistance to illegal aliens, as tuition and fees continually skyrocket  for Arizona students and wildly spiral for out-of-state American citizens. 

Today’s edition of the Hillary-endorsing newspaper headlines a front page report, “Audit: ASU misspent more than a $million, questions raised over use of research funds.” The 3-page article includes references to redacted information throughout the audit, and “questionable expenditures.”  Missing is any mention of Michael Crow.

Since Crow is in charge of the university, why is there not a single reference to him? 

Money magazine in June 2017, named Crow as the nation’s highest paid public university president, at that time raking in $1.55 million in base pay and bonuses, with a package that vaulted him into the top spot.

His future brightened considerably in May 2018, as he received a 15% raise in his base pay bringing his salary — excluding bonuses and perks — to $690,000 applied retroactively to January 2018. Crow also receives automatic annual 3.5% increases in his base salary starting in September 2019  His salary was unanimously approved by the Arizona Board of Regents.

ASU’s website still extols President Barack Obama Scholars Program, which is described using these words, “President Barack Obama represents outstanding academic achievement, thoughtfulness, a long record of service to others, inspired leadership and a commitment to building strong communities across this country.” It includes a “coaching component.” to elevate failing minority students.

Obama has been out of office since 2016, but still rates high at ASU.

*These figures, published by The Chronicle of Higher Education, reflect Michael Crow’s base salary as of 2016-17. His bonuses and other compensation, including car and a housing allowance for his nearly 5,000 sq. ft. Paradise Valley mansion, personal and social club benefits are in addition to his base plus a $150,000 bonus and a $550,000 payment from the university foundation as a 10-year retention bonus.


#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.

Illegal alien crisis reaches breaking point

March 29, 2019

Overburdened Border Patrol is releasing illegal aliens on to city streets in Arizona and Texas, a fact the Arizona Republic buries on page 11

The Trojan Horse symbolizes a saga in Greek mythology describing the strategy used by ancient Greeks to overtake the powerful city of Troy that had remained unconquerable during a decade long war. Finally the Greeks constructed a gigantic wooden horse in which they hid an elite fighting force. The horse, considered a victory trophy by the Trojans, was wheeled into the walled city as the Greeks appeared to retreat. According to legend, using the cover of darkness, the soldiers stowed inside the horse, crept out, opened the gates and let the rest of the army enter. The result was the destruction of Troy followed by a takeover by the invaders. The war ended, and so did Troy.

The United States is now in a similar position. There is no wooden horse, but there are determined invaders —- and we, like the Trojans, appear to be aiding and abetting our own demise.

John Binder, writing for Breitbart News, citing facts and figures from government sources, reports the United States is projected to add about 1.5 million illegal aliens to the American population by the end of the year, if current rates of Catch and Release border crossings and the 300,000 to 400,000 visa overstays remain consistent.

These numbers are in addition to the unverifiable tens of millions* of illegal aliens who are already fanned out across our country. This incalculable range represents the fact that we have lost control of how many invaders have breached our border. Their birth rates surpass native-born Americans.

Additionally, the astronomical numbers don’t factor in the estimated 500,000 illegal aliens who successfully cross into the U.S. undetected by Border Patrol agents. They are typically deported only after committing crimes in the U.S. —- initiating a cycle of repeated returns and deportations.  These are recent Border Patrol statistics.

The unskilled and uneducated Central American and Mexican hordes who have no respect for our sovereignty and are loath to assimilate, recreate the barrios they left behind after arriving in the USA.  Once here, they are able to access taxpayer-funded benefits as they fan out across our nation, all too often aided and abetted by unconscionable churches desperate to fill their emptying pews with grateful invaders.

President Donald Trump ran and was elected on his promise to build a border wall. Congressional Democrats have thwarted his efforts at every turn, denying the funding needed to complete construction. They tout technology that has been a costly failure since it was initially implemented. SRAZ posted,Virtual fence is a virtual flop,“ andVirtual fence “looks good” to Homeland Insecurity Chief Chertoff,” nearly a dozen years ago. The only thing that has changed is the invaders now boldly arrive in caravans, knowing that the leftist dominated U.S. House of Representatives refuses to advance funding President Trump has repeatedly requested. The visceral hatred they have for him trouncing Hillary Clinton in 2016 supersedes any rational thoughts of providing security to America’s citizens.

This Roy Beck video is not new, but remains as relevant as when it first introduced.
