Associated Press’ 2019 guidelines veer further left

April 9, 2019

Reporters instructed on retooling language in an effort to reconfigure attitudes

It’s not just about grammar and capitalization conundrums. Nope. Those zany folks at Associate Press are hard at work attempting to recraft your attitudes via 2019 stylebook guidelines. Though President Trump is not specifically mentioned, anti-Trumpism is always bubbling beneath the surface in news coverage.

The terms “racist” and “racism” are deserving of their own chapter. It is 2019, after all, and the stylebook’s audience is aimed at reporters who put a premium on dividing us according to ethnicity. African American has lost its dash with the removal of the hyphen. Americans who prefer to just be Americans are out’a luck. Are you unfamiliar with the term “Latinx?” It’s the gender-neutral or nonbinary alternative to Latino or Latina. AP is not simply a news agency. It also constructs language.

Illogically the focus on race is followed up with, “Consider carefully when deciding whether to identify people by race. Often, it is an irrelevant factor and drawing unnecessary attention to someone’s race or ethnicity can be interpreted as bigotry.”

In 2013, SRAZ posted,Winston Smith: Alive and well at Associated Press. “

That was followed in 2017 byAP reconfigures language, tries to control thinking — again,” in which the stylebook urged journalists to avoid making references in news stories that suggest there are only two sexes in the human race.

In 2010, the Diversity Committee of the Society of Professional Journalists called on news reporters nationwide to stop using the term “illegal immigrant” in their news coverage —- preferring “undocumented workers” or “undocumented immigrants.”

As early as 2008, at the height of the war on terror, we exposed the absurd guidelines from the Society of Professional Journalists, which called for grouping white supremacists and “radical anti-abortionists” with Islamic terrorists. Jihad was not only verboten, it was sympathetically referred to as “exert[ing] oneself for the good of Islam and to better oneself.” None dare call it what it is: A militant Islamic movement threatening Western civilization.

These two gems were specific in their instructions:

– When writing about terrorism, remember to include white supremacist, radical anti-abortionists and other groups with a history of such activity.

– Use photos and features to demystify veils, turbans and other cultural articles and customs.

The 2019 stylebook’s lead editor Paula Froke, slickly states, “Our first audience is journalists, but the audience is very broad.”

The indisputable fact is, American citizens are the intended audience for the double speak and attitude adjustments. The majority of what you see and hear is fabricated with these leftist threads. Students are inundated with it from kindergarten through graduate school. What was once heralded as the free press, has grotesquely transmogrified to purveyors of mind control.

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.”


AZ Rep. Stringer outed as child molester, resigns

March 30, 2019

By now, Arizonans who aren’t living under a rock know the stomach-turning facts behind David Stringer’s abrupt resignation from the state legislature this past week, where he represented LD 1. Stringer, a 71-year-old Republican, was elected in 2017 after previously having served on the Prescott Planning and Zoning Commission.

The revelations are so disgusting the March 29, edition of the Phoenix New Times report on the recent disclosures concerning Stringer, carries a “Content warning: This article contains graphic descriptions of sexual assault involving children.

Imagine. Someone with the responsibility of enacting laws that the rest of us must abide by, isn’t even able to be trusted to have a normal interaction with kids. He repeatedly paid young boys and a disabled teen he picked up in a Baltimore park for sex. He was charged in 1983 in Maryland, though his record was inexplicably expunged.

David Stringer’s campaign website —- oddly still up —- lists him as “PRO-FAMILY.” It’s a sure bet families with young sons wouldn’t agree.

The unmarried Stringer devotes an entire page to a report titled,Representative Stringer Responds to Reports of 35-year-old Arrest.It was published in the Prescott eNews, in which he holds a financial interest. A disclosure of the relationship is contained in the report.

He has been persona non grata since making bizarre comments such as “black people don’t blend in,” when speaking with a group of ASU students. Stringer has resisted bi-partisan calls for him to resign. 

The arrogance of this criminal to seek public office after moving to Arizona is astonishing. Also puzzling is how he was able to retain his legal credentials and be listed as a member in good standing since 2004 with the State Bar of Arizona.

The New Times has been on top of this since January, when it printed a redacted copy of Stringer’s 1983 criminal case history. He was charged with multiple sex offenses, including child pornography.


Paul Manafort’s jeopardy: There’s a leftist link 

March 14, 2019

The syndicated game show Jeopardy! has been In the news recently after the debonair host Alex Trebek shockingly disclosed he’s been diagnosed with a stage 4 pancreatic malignancy. 

Longtime viewers of the popular quiz show will remember former contestant Matt Jackson, a young paralegal who had one of the long-running show’s most memorable winning streaks —- 13 episodes. The intellectually gifted 23-year-old was impossible not to cheer for. The Yale philosophy major never caught up with all-time winner Ken Jennings who topped out at a record 74 episodes in a row, but Jackson won $413,612. He recently appeared with other top winners participating in the All-Star Tournament.

Wondering what this has to do with Paul Manafort, President Trump‘s former campaign manager who has been charged in connection with fraud unrelated to the campaign?

Early in the show, Trebek asked Jackson to talk about his “very different” parents.

He responded, “My mother is white, liberal and Jewish, and my dad is black, Christian and conservative.”

Matt Jackson comes from an intellectual gene pool. Both of his parents are lawyers. His father is Washington, D. C. attorney Darryl Jackson, who served as a Commerce Department official under former President George W. Bush.

His maternal grandfather, Barnett Berman, was a physician at Johns Hopkins University. Matt Jackson cited him as an early influence in becoming well-read.

And Jackson’s mother — the woman her own son described as “liberal”? Barack Obama nominated Amy Berman Jackson as United States District Judge for the District of Columbia. She was confirmed by a 97–0 vote on March 17, 2011, and was commissioned the next day. The roll call vote can be seen here.  Following their established pattern, Arizona Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl both voted to confirm the leftist nominee.

It was Judge Jackson who added three-and-a-half years on top of the nearly four-year sentence Manafort received last week in a separate case in Virginia, though he’ll get credit for nine months already served.

This is the statement the nearly 70-year-old delivered to the court prior to the sentence being handed down. It was met with an icy reception from Judge Amy Berman who said she was not satisfied with Manafort’s apology, accusing him of trying to avoid punishment.


Blowback as Fla. Republicrat trolls for leftist votes

March 4, 2019

As the barbaric practice of infanticide — aborting a viable pre-born human baby up until the moment of birth —-rears its fiendish head in more states, it shouldn’t surprise that the grotesque has now morphed into full-blown lunacy.

Witness this maniacal turn of phrase, repetitively and shamelessly uttered by none other than a Republican — obviously seeking to expand his voter base. Florida House Speaker Jose Oliva has coined a new term to describe a pregnant mother: “Host Body.”

During a televised interview about a pro-life bill in the Florida House of Representatives, Oliva actually referred to pregnant women as “host bodies” five times during the interview.

The overwhelming negative response was swift, causing Oliva to retract his bizarre language with this apology (video):

 “In a recent interview where the very controversial topic of abortion was raised I used the term ‘host’ to describe a pregnant woman. It was an attempt to use terminology found in medical ethics writings with the purpose of keeping the discussion dispassionate. The reaction undoubtedly shows it had the exact opposite effect. I apologize for having caused offense; my aim was the contrary. This is and will continue to be our societies [sic] greatest challenge. I strongly believe both mother and child have rights and the extent and balance of those rights remain in question.”

Reread that last mind-boggling sentence.

Interestingly, the outrage was led by Florida legislative Democrats and the Florida Democrat Party Chairwoman. 

Would they have protested if a Democrat had uttered the same words?  Chances are slim to none.

The single priceless highlight of this contortionist language was Wikipedia’s coverage of Florida Speaker Joe Oliva. It referred to his own mother and wife as “host mother” and “host wife.” Showing a decided lack of spine, the descriptive language has been removed. Oliva’s wife Jeanne has been a “host” three times!

U.S. Senate Bill 311 titled, “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” can be read here. Fox News reports Democrats, including all of the Senate’s 2020 presidential hopefuls, blocked the measure.

 


Marxist Pope Francis oversees sexual abuse, corruption

February 26, 2019

The U.K.‘s Guardian newspaper, reports on the global sexual abuse scandal that is rocking the Catholic Church. These vile acts against children have been perpetrated by numerous leaders throughout the hierarchy, from parish priests to bishops, including archbishops and cardinals, to close advisers to Pope Francis. Cardinal George Pell, until recently the third most senior figure at the Vatican, is facing prison time for serial abuse of minors. Last June, Francis accepted the resignation of three Chilean bishops over their handling of abuse cases, including one he had vigorously defended a few months earlier. The recent list of degenerate clergy can be found in the Guardian link in the first sentence of this paragraph.

When Pope Benedict XVI was swiftly removed from the papacy in 2013, the first pope in over 600 years to “abdicate,” speculation ran rampant, but most often returned to the corruption he exposed at the top levels of the $8 Billion-asset Vatican Bank. Benedict’s rushed departure followed by immediate and permanent seclusion eerily coincided with the banking scandal exposé.

Enshrouded in secrecy for 6 years, no one except Vatican insiders know whether Benedict, who was elected pope in 2005, is above or below ground.

Polish-born Benedict witnessed the atrocities of WWII firsthand and valued liberty. Francis, an unconcealed Marxist, is the first Jesuit pope. Born in Argentina, he is the first pope from outside Europe since Gregory III, a Syrian, who led the church in the 8th century.

Pope Francis claims unusual skills, such as the ability to see into the heart of others; declaring prior to the 2016 presidential election that Donald Trump is not a Christian, as he clearly attempted to influence the outcome of the U.S. election.

Francis, who lives in opulence behind massive Vatican City walls, ridicules the United States for constructing a much smaller barrier on our southern border than the 50-foot-tall, ten-feet-deep wall surrounding the fortress that protects him, along with the Swiss Guard that function as a private military force. He frequently chastises America on the hot-button issues that drive the left, consumerism and global warming. Worst of all, he has concealed the rampant sexual abuse in the church until he was forced to hold a 4-day “summit,” where he apologized for the systemic perversion, calling the very clergy he protected, “instruments of Satan.”

His summit has been described as “vague” and “too little too late.” It’s time for Francis to get the same treatment given to Pope Benedict XVI — a righteous man who did not deserve to be banished.

Francis, who has spent his adult life living off the generosity of others, is clearly opposed to capitalism. In 2015, he issued this statement maligning the United States: “The ideology surrounding environmental issues is too tied to a capitalism that doesn’t want to stop ruining the environment because they don’t want to give up their profits.”

As we noted in Aug. 2016, Dems to enlist Pope on illegals, voter base expansion, his provocative mastery of Marxist, anti-capitalist buzzwords is disturbing, with redistribution of wealth one of his frequent themes. His “Inequality is the root of social evil,” set off a heated debate in which he was criticized for increasingly driving a wedge between conservatives and the Catholic Church. Francis previously blasted ‘trickle-down’ economics, a basic tenet of President Reagan’s economic policy as a “crude and naive” theory.

He obviously prefers the failed Marxist redistributionist model.


Cindy McCain outed as a human trafficking liar & Update

February 7, 2019

Claim of witnessing human trafficking incident disputed by Phoenix Police

Arizonans, and the nation, were well aware of the duplicity and arrogance of John McCain, a man who was raised in the shadows of brave military men. Both his father and his grandfather were admirals in the U. S. Navy.  As John Sidney McCain, III, he carried their names and had a big legacy to fill. Instead he graduated at the bottom of his Naval Academy class, was a renown womanizer and crashed three jets. When he was shot down, captured and imprisoned during the Vietnam War, his embellished saga was disputed by others on congressional committees along with former POWs. After returning as a hero, he ditched his wife who waited patiently for his return to marry the much younger rodeo queen and Anheuser-Busch beer heiress Cindy Lou Hensley, now morphed into a philanthropist.

Now his widow after McCain’s 2018 death from brain cancer, Cindy, who has also had problems with veracity, is now integral to the grandly named McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University, where Cindy serves on the Human Trafficking Advisory Council and the board of trustees. This scheme has vaulted them both to iconic stature. Cindy made human trafficking her focus. Opiate abuse a topic with which she has personal familiarity would not have served her nearly as well.

During a Monday interview on KTAR‘s ‘Mac & Gaydos’ show, reported by the Washington Post, Cindy recounted an incident which she claimed took place at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport — which, of course, now has a McCain terminal.

“I came in from a trip I’d been on and I spotted…it looked odd….”It was a woman of a different ethnicity than the child, this little toddler she had, and something didn’t click with me. I tell people, trust your gut. I went over to the police and told them what I thought, and they went over and questioned her. And by God, she was trafficking that kid.”

The radio show hosts were aghast.

“No way!” one said.

“And you said a toddler?” the other asked.

“Yes,” McCain said. “A toddler. It was a toddler. She was waiting for the guy who brought the child to get off the airplane.”

Cindy McCain is the co-chair of Gov. Ducey’s Arizona Human Trafficking Council. The Ducey and McCain families have been close since Doug Ducey first arrived in Arizona and was hired at Hensley & Co. while attending ASU. Years later as a businessman, John McCain encouraged him to run for state treasurer and he is now serving his second term as governor.

The McCain worshiping Arizona Republic newspaper has so far been mute on Cindy McCain’s fabricated human trafficking tale, on which she has now backtracked since Phoenix Police refuted her story on Wednesday as reported by KTAR News.

Fri. Feb. 8, 2019:

The Arizona Republic, several days late and a dollar short, as the saying goes, finally addresses Cindy McCain’s fabricated tale of saving a toddler from human trafficking — burying it on page 13.  The banal headline: “Cindy McCain steps back from report of trafficking,” sits atop a brief article tucked in among a full page of ads for discounted zoo tickets, window blinds and resale jewelry. Bringing embarrassment to the widow of the Machiavellian man the newspaper obsessively reveres, would never do, even when Cindy McCain’s acknowledged motive for contacting the airport police was based in racism. Imagine the placement and coverage this preposterous claim would have received if the person making the false allegations was First Lady Melania Trump.
