Michelle Ugenti-Rita’s political aspirations explode in boos at Trump election integrity rally

July 25, 2021

Scandal-plagued* Arizona state senator Michelle Ugenti Rita (R-LD23) received a roaring reception at Saturday’s capacity crowd Trump election integrity rally, but it definitely wasn’t what she was hoping for. 

Ugenti-Rita, who has said she no longer supports the Maricopa County ballot audit, and has ridiculed AZ Senate President Karen Fann, was booed repeatedly and finally left the stage in disgrace before finishing her prepared statements. Attendees were furious at her petty refusal to support SB 1241, an election integrity bill proposed by another Republican, Sen. Kelly Townsend — opting instead to join the democrats and Republicrat Sen. Paul Boyer. She‘s currently a candidate for Arizona Secretary of State and will likely be withdrawing rather than face a humiliating Primary Election loss.

Ugenti-Rita’s disgrace was widely reported nationally:

Associated Press gives official pass to criminals

July 13, 2021

News agency will no longer cover “not newsworthy” crimes

Associated Press is back to its old tricks, determining what is now too offensive for general consumption while attempting to manipulate American’s attitudes via language. It has become the self-appointed arbiter of communication, with no one to challenge its leftist perspective. SRAZ has written about the agency’s overreaches intended to cunningly alter the vantage point of readers, now utilizing loaded language techniques while ignoring minority perpetrated criminality.

In 2019 AP reporters were instructed on retooling language in an effort to reconfigure opinions. In 2021 deceitful word manipulation has become even more emboldened. We noted at the time that what was once heralded as the free press, has grotesquely transmogrified to purveyors of mind control. This is an important link which is worth your time.

Claiming its mission is to “inform the world,” and “setting the industry standard for ethics in journalism,” AP boasts it’s been on the scene since 1846. Its former rival United Press International (UPI) has all but dried up and bitten the dust.

AP’s latest gambit is deeming certain names too objectionable to be seen in print. Naming crime suspects or showing mug shots of minority criminal perpetrators is now considered racist, although their presumably loving mothers bestowed the monikers on them.

John Daniszewski, AP’s Vice President for Standards, ignores the fact that crime stats are highest among minority perpetrators, since that doesn’t fit into the leftist perspective as it skews the news. He writes, “The names of suspects are generally not newsworthy beyond their local communities. We will not link from these stories to others that do name the person, and we will not move mug shots in these cases, since the accused would be identifiable by that photo as well. We also will stop publishing stories driven mainly by a particularly embarrassing mug shot, nor will we publish such mug shots solely because of the appearance of the accused.”

In a world inhabited by leftists even those calling themselves “journalists,“ charged with delivering the news, showing or naming the perpetrator is now racist or too embarrassing.

It’s worth considering if John Daniszewski would be so generous if either he, his wife or children were brutally victimized by those whose violent crimes he is intent on ignoring.


Stephen Richer revels in blue spotlight, duped Republicans

July 12, 2021

GOP political newcomer clearly displays his leftist stripes

When the GOP-hating, Hillary-endorsing local newspaper is enraptured with an elected Republican, it’s a clear sign something is amiss. That is exactly what’s happening with Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer. The Recorder’s Office is regarded as a down ballot post, which few people can accurately identify either by the duties or the office holder.

In November 2020, Richer, the previously unknown Republican lawyer ousted the single term democrat and the victory tasted sweet, masking the toxicity aimed at conservatives that we were soon to see. Richer has appeared in a full-color, above-the-fold photo in a newspaper report standing beside democrat Sheriff Paul Penzone and using the prominently displayed word “unhinged” to describe President Donald Trump. Penzone, it should be remembered defeated six-term Sheriff Joe Arpaio with at least $2 million added to his campaign coffers by none other than Socialist billionaire George Soros who has resolutely donated to overhaul the criminal justice system in his leftist image.

This revealing account was published in Law Enforcement Today.

Displaying its newfound GOP defector poster boy, Sunday’s edition of the seriously declining local newspaper devotes two pages to a “Your Turn” column by Stephen Richer, titled, “Playing by an awfully different set of rules.”  This bold type face, foolish sentiment is directly below the headline:

Maricopa County election administrators conducted bipartisan hand-count audit of 2020 votes. Cyber Ninjas — Republicans in sheep’s clothing — recruited almost exclusively from the GOP.

Do those words sound like what Republican voters would expect to hear from a newly elected Republican? The newspaper, which always posts a photo of the columnist alongside the article, generously provides Richer a “haircut” by lopping off the oddly balding top of his head, making him look more palatable as he gouges Republican Senate President Karen Fann and the auditing firm which has worked around the clock with NINE online cameras making the process available to any interested party. Richer bizarrely concludes they play by a “different set of rules.”

His own election was hardly a runaway. Richer defeated democrat Adrian Fontes by a razor-thin 50.1% to 49.8%. In the primary he defeated perpetually losing candidate Clair Van Steenwyk (known as “Van the Radio Man”) by a 15% margin, which should have been far greater.

If Richer runs for any political office in the future, it should be as the democrat he has shown himself to be. It will be a rare display of honesty.


“Systemic racism” fraud exposed by Catholic League President

July 8, 2021

The insidious Marxist farce known as ‘critical race theory’ has invaded America. It is served to us and our children by radically leftist educrats who have coined the phrase, “systemic racism,” which is calculated to divide us as oppressors and victims based solely on skin color. Integral to the scheme is reparations, monetary payments to atone for slavery which ended in 1865 with the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, in the aftermath of the four-year long Civil War. It was fought during the presidency of Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican U.S. President who was an ardent abolitionist.

The surge of immigrants through Ellis Island from its opening in 1892 to its closing in 1954 were often oppressed people themselves and neither they nor their descendants owned slaves, which is of no consequence to those with an agenda.

The local newspaper, which touts its commitment to diversity over competence, ran an irrational editorial on July 7, by a black University of Texas professor, under the headline, “Teaching critical race theory is patriotic, not divisive.”

Topping the most rational commentaries on the topic is this one written by Catholic League president Bill Donohue, titled, “MEET THE NEW RACISTS.” Regardless of how busy you are today, take time to read his wisdom. It’s a decision you won’t regret.


Kamala Harris’ quick Mexico trip: I came, I saw, arrivederci

June 27, 2021

Leftist immigration policy has predictably dire border consequences

VP Kamala Harris finally took a sanitized trip to El Paso on Friday, three months after she was named the border czarina by Pres. Joe Biden, and facing mounting pressure for not attending to business, to which she cackled in response. She briefly visited an ICE facility, staying out of the sun and avoiding the harsh reality of a steady stream of illegal aliens crossing into the United States. A recent headline following her trip? “More migrants will now get 2nd chance at asylum.”

With audacity in abundance, she actually stated the Biden administration had made progress tackling the “tough situation we inherited.”

Apparently the Vice President, who has steadfastly avoided the border since her March 24 appointment to oversee the calamitous situation, has forgotten that border wall construction was an issue that President Trump campaigned on and was elected to fulfill. Progress was being made until Biden’s surrogates authorized dismantling of completed wall sections and a halt to new construction, creating the current crisis.

Since Biden has undone the effective policies from Day One of his administration, illegal aliens have crossed the southern border at a record rate of nearly 180,000 per month, according to data supplied by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

On his first day in office, signing myriad pre-prepared leather bound executive orders, Biden also overturned President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, affecting illegals awaiting immigration decisions. In the ensuing months, unaccompanied minors, being exploited by transporting drug cartels have become a major problem at the border. Kamala Harris’ response? Listen.

Is it any wonder this June 23, Rasmussen Reports indicates 55 percent of voters support election audits?

          


Not proficient in Spanish? The AZ República will handle that

June 6, 2021

Since a dwindling number of Arizonans subscribe to the radically left-wing local newspaper, there is likely an unawareness of its most recent move to de-anglicize its reporting. In today’s edition there is a revealing article titled, “Mexicans living abroad to gain representative in Mexico.” It details how illegal aliens from Mexico City who have invaded the United States will be able to elect a “migrant representative to act on their behalf as a member of congress in the city.”

If that’s not convoluted enough to make American heads spin, the report contains a first for the newspaper we have sarcastically referred to as the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic):

“México is set to host its largest election ever, with 500 seats up for grabs, ranging from local and regional representatives to gubernatorial positions all over the country.

And while several states will be electing a statewide migrant representative, only the country’s capital is allowing migrants currently residing outside of the country to vote for this specific seat. For Arizonans who are natives of México City and have registered to vote, that means they can cast a ballot come Sunday.”

Notice the accent mark that is a new addition to the word Mexico? Unless you are willing to be culturally reacclimated by the leftist newspaper, this overreach is an insult. 

The newspaper’s commitment to diversity has been given front page coverage by executive editor, Greg Burton as he details the new hiring practices that include “the goal to match a community that is 44% people of color.”

Hiring based on qualifications is a outdated concept at the newspaper. In order to authentically report the news, diversity takes precedent. This offensive concept invalidates professionals in all walks of life. Having a degree that relates to your line of work is no longer paramount. To be considered a valuable employee it’s imperative you represent a specific ethnicity and have the proper amount of melanin in your skin pigment — traits over which none of us have any control.


Illegal aliens being housed in Scottsdale hotel

June 3, 2021

The headlined news item, “Migrants could be detained at Valley hotel,” must have warmed the metaphorical cockles of nearby residents. The now closed Hilton Homewood Suites located at Scottsdale Road and Mountain View, is in the upscale 85253 zip code.

Now it’s a done deal.

There are currently negotiations underway between the property owner and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to operate the property as an “Emergency Family Station Center,” for what they blandly refer to as “migrants,” and the rest of us know to be illegal aliens, who have violated our sovereign national border as they furtively invade our nation.

Woodbridge Hospitality, the property owner, has filed for bankruptcy, and is negotiating to sell the property to a company that intends to convert it into an apartment complex. The price of $17.5 million would be negatively impacted following the use of the hotel to house illegals.

On Wednesday evening, hundreds of people assembled in front of the hotel, waving American flags and carrying signs protesting the plan to house and feed lawbreakers in the shuttered facility. Several of the signs focusing on the worsening border predicament read, “Secure Our Border,” and “Don’t blame me, I voted for Trump.”

This June 2, 2021 letter from Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich to the law firms representing the lender and borrower of the property, expresses his “grave concerns” over the use of the property. He writes, “The root-causes of the current crisis are problems of the Biden administration’s own making.” Copies of the letter were sent to Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel and Scottsdale City Attorney Sherry R. Scott.

The City of Scottsdale issued this terse, buck-passing communiqué from its Office of Communications.

The hotel, located between two apartment complexes and a block away from Chaparral High School, will house 1,200 illegal aliens — referred to as “migrants.”

These are migrants. They go home. Don’t confuse them with invaders, who stay and expect accommodations.


Election Audit: Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer tutors in career suicide

May 20, 2021

Those who follow politics closely know the true meaning of zaniness.  Here in Maricopa County, Arizona’s most populous county and the fourth most populous in the United States, we have a Republican elected County Recorder who defeated the democrat incumbent by a hair, (50.1% – 49.8%) and has, within his first term, spiraled out of the political orbit that put the unknown in office. Stephen Richer has declared former president Trump “unhinged” and a “liar,” for questioning the ballot audit process. Maricopa County is not a stand-alone, as this NBC WBRE-TV Eyewitness News headline indicates: “Luzerne County Director of Elections points to flaws with voting machines.” Luzerne County is in Pennsylvania.

Stephen Richer, whose current term ends Jan.1, 2025, joined with members of the Board of Supervisors, who obviously feel their integrity is being questioned by the audit, calling it a “sham process.” The best response to their bruised egos is, “It’s not about you!”

Richer, the new darling of the leftist local newspaper, which gave him a pre-election cold-shoulder, is pictured in a large, front page photo standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Sheriff Paul Penzone, who was elected with the help of at least $2 million* from Socialist multi-billionaire George Soros. His well-financed goal is to overhaul America’s criminal justice system in his radically skewed trajectory.

Maricopa County and the State of Arizona are home to multitudes of Trump supporters. Needlessly jamming a contrived thumb in their collective eyes is not a stellar start to a upwardly mobile political career. While it’s true he’s no longer in the Oval Office — now occupied by a dilapidated, unable to speak coherently extremist placeholder for Kamala Harris — Americans long for the top-notch economy, his international savvy, passion for securing our sovereign border and his steadfast support of the sole democracy in the mid east. Joe Biden’s handlers are doing the exact opposite, and the results are horrific.

Republicans are aligned with the GOP for a reason. It’s not a game we play. It requires commitment and being able to articulate to ourselves and others what drives our dedication. These are the worst of times and turning on ourselves aids the other side. Stephen Richer should be knowledgeable enough to grasp that basic fact.

Biden threatens, take the vaccine…or else

May 18, 2021

How reassuring it is to live in the land of George Orwell’s ubiquitous Big Brother and under the thumb of demented Joe. We no longer have to be burdened with the task of thinking for ourselves, and there will be consequences if we are bold enough to try.

On Monday, blathering Joe Biden threatened the American people as he attempted to speak coherently, though missing the mark. Biden actually declared that those who have not gotten the vaccine will “pay the price.”

What “price” that is was not defined. Presumably, it is death. Then again, it could relate to being rounded up and incarcerated. With radical criminal justice “reforms” taking hold across the nation, prison sentences are being cut short and felons are being released onto city streets, making room for non-vaxxers to be incarcerated, and “pay the price.”

Biden previously said that despite some states lifting mask mandates, we should respect those who continue to wear them. It was not that long ago that Joe and Tony (Fauci) were advocating for “double masking.” 

If people happen to stop breathing while wearing two masks in the oppressive summer heat, would those deaths be attributable to COVID, or lack of oxygen due to surrendering to the demands of two aged, leftist tyrants?

RINOcrat Liz Cheney deservedly dumped from House leadership & Update

May 13, 2021

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), fueled by a peculiar and unrelenting Trump-hatred, has veered off the political cliff into wing-nut land. This was part of her latest rant, as she addressed the U.S. House chamber that was devoid of Republicans, who had taken a hike rather than give her words credence.

“We must go forward based on truth. We cannot both embrace the big lie and embrace the Constitution. I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” adding, “Freedom only survives if we protect it. We must speak the truth. The election was not stolen. America has not failed.”

Truth? President Trump has the solid support of nearly 75 million American voters who cast their ballots for him. Neither former President Trump nor his patriotic supporters ever claimed American “failed.”

Cheney was elected from Wyoming’s At-Large Congressional District, assuming office in 2017. Her current term ends on January 3, 2023. That date should also mark the end of her political career. According to the Wyoming Secretary of State voter registration statistics, as of January 21, 2021, there were 209,231 registered Republicans compared to 51,227 democrats.

Cramping her aspirations in the red state, House Republicans voted to remove Cheney as chair of the Republican Conference on May 12, 2021.

This McLaughlin & Associates poll conducted in January indicated only 13% of general election voters would vote to re-elect Cheney. Her re-election score drops to 10% among Republicans and 6% among Trump voters. It’s a certainty those numbers have plummeted even lower in the intervening months.

UPDATE:

On Friday May 14, House Republicans elected Rep. Elise Stefanik, (R-N.Y.), as their conference chair, replacing Cheney. Stefanik won by a vote of 134 to 46. Long regarded as a “moderate,” Stefanik became a vocal Trump supporter in recent years.
