Scientific authorities Biden, Pope meet to discuss climate                           

October 18, 2021

Neither Joe Biden, nearly 79, nor Pope Francis, soon to be 85, are scientists or medical doctors. They are both leftists, and as such are proponents of the debated issue known alternatively as climate change or global warming. Climate change is much preferred since it cuts a wider swath including global cooling, wildfires, droughts, floods or other phenomena that have been recorded throughout history. Francis gave an encyclical on ecology, declaring that climate change is real and mainly “a result of human activity.” The problem is urgent, he said. “Never have we so hurt and mistreated our common home as we have in the last two hundred years.”

The United States is just over two hundred years since its founding, making Francis’ words appear to be a pointed barb. Given that no nation was mechanized then, his time frame is more than odd. These two wizards will also discuss the Covid-19 pandemic.

The duo will meet at the Vatican Oct. 29 to discuss things over which they have no control, though it would seem the pope would use the opportunity to dissuade Catholic Biden from his pro-abortion stance, since a pro-life position is a basic tenant of the faith.

In June, the U.S. Catholic bishops overwhelmingly approved the drafting of a “teaching document” that many hope will rebuke Catholic politicians, including Biden, for receiving communion despite their support for the gruesome act of abortion.

But Biden and Francis are cunning liberals who are both more political than religious. Their agenda states the duo “will discuss working together on efforts grounded in respect for fundamental human dignity, including ending the COVID-19 pandemic. They must have missed that abortion permanently disrespects human dignity as preborn humans are brutally ripped from what should be the safety of their mother’s uterus.

When Argentine Francis came to the United States to address congress in 2015, he stopped first in Cuba, prioritizing his meeting with Communist dictators Fidel and Raul Castro, where they warmly conversed in Spanish and dined, like old amigos.

Arizona U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, a principled Catholic and conservative Republican, shunned Francis’ speech.


Law firm’s cheery farewell to do-nothing Rodney Glassman

October 6, 2021

Fake conservative, pro-abortion Glassman is no Reagan or Trump

On its website, Beus Gilbert McGroder law firm refers to itself as “a boutique law firm concentrating on high stakes litigation, real estate, zoning law, and catastrophic personal injury…demonstrating a relentless commitment to represent our clients’ interests.”

The listing of lawyers is impressive but also notable for one stand-alone designation. With the exception of the Founders, all 23 other attorneys are listed as members or associates. The sole exclusion is perpetually losing candidate Rodney Glassman, who is designated as “of counsel.” The term is a loose one, frequently used to designate casual relationships with firms.

We raise this issue due to the fact that founder Paul E. Gilbert has sent out a effusive and glowing mass email stating what a loss it will be to the firm to have Glassman pursue a race for Arizona Attorney General.

Gilbert, it is rumored, hired Glassman after his Fresno-based, wealthy agribusiness parents paid handsomely to have their son find a respectable landing spot from which to launch yet another campaign for which he is ill-prepared. The Arizona Attorney General’s Office is the largest law office in the state, with over 400 attorneys and 1,000 employees. Being Attorney General is an enormous responsibility representing government agencies as well as overseeing the Solicitor General’s Office, Child and Family Protection Division, Criminal and Civil Litigation Divisions and State Government Division. In addition to the Phoenix office there are also offices in Prescott and Tucson. Heading this office is not the place for a novice.

As contrived, Glassman responded to Paul Gilbert’s email with a pompous thank you, and a video in which he claims, “Like Presidents Trump and Reagan, I have experienced a political awakening to conservative thinking.” This is an odd claim since he gladly accepted Planned Parenthood’s endorsement just last year. He was also happy to take the UFCW Union endorsement.  Scroll through the union’s homepage to see his smiling picture alongside other democrats.

Glassman is a fraud, who is desperate to win after repeatedly losing every office he has ever run for except a Tucson City council seat, from which he resigned mid-way through the term.

No doubt the firm is weighted down by the egocentric, chronic political aspirant who has nothing to recommend him other than a burning desire to attain an office…any office. Paul Gilbert is likely all too happy to cheer Glassman — who hosts political soirees in the firm’s grand conference room — out the door, and make room for a lawyer who will actually work.

Acquaint yourself with Rodney Glassman. It’s critically important. SRAZ has been exposing the deceitful poser for years: We’ve posted these links previously, due to their level of importance:

AZ Regent Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson supports huge raises for overpaid university presidents

October 4, 2021

With Gov. Doug Ducey term-limited, the list of those from both parties eager to lead the state continues to grow. Most are inexperienced dolts

Today we focus on Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson, not to endorse her, but to expose the fact that as a Doug Ducey appointed member of the Arizona Board of Regents (ARBOR), she was instrumental in gifting extraordinary salary hikes and numerous additional bonuses to the presidents of ASU and UofA and university coaches as the depressed Biden economy and surging prices are negatively impacting Arizona taxpayers. Robson was appointed by Gov. Ducey in 2017 to an eight-year term.

Focusing on ASU President Michael Crow, his new base salary is $771,282 up from $714,150. This is separate from the $70,000 housing allowance, $10,000 car allowance and an “18 to 21% contribution” to Crow’s retirement funds. All of that is in addition to another $50,000 for achieving some of the goals he set last year.

The cagily written press release can be read here.

The astronomical tuition and other fees at the 3 state universities not only make ASU President Michael Crow one of the highest paid state university presidents in the nation, while dinging parents and students with tuition that is beyond the reach of many. Yet Crow has long advocated for reduced rates (in-state tuition) for illegals who he welcomes with open arms.

Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson, married to wealthy developer Ed Robson 35 years her senior, self identifies as the founder and president of Arizona Strategies, a land-use strategy company, an impressive title…unless your husband is a longtime, successful developer. She was instrumental in rubberstamping these astronomical pay and benefit increases. Now she has the nerve to run for governor? The U.K.’s Daily Mail even covered  Ducey ignoring a phone call from then-President Trump, when the distinctive incoming ring tone “Hail to the Chief” played, Ducey, a McCain toady silenced it, proceeding to certify the questionable Biden victory.

Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson a prominent Republican donor, has never held or run for political office, is now a governor wannabe with nothing to recommend her for the state’s top job other than marrying Ed Robson who indulges and finances her whims. At 92, Ed Robson is older than her father. She spoke volumes when she was conveniently “out of town,” during President Trump’s July 24, 2021 “Rally To Protect Our Elections!

She’s a Republican poser, undeserving of your vote for governor.


Fake conservative Kari Lake fails trying to speak Republicanese

October 3, 2021

Dem opportunistically turned Republican Kari Lake copies Rodney Glassman’s campaign tactics as GOP impersonator

When you’ve been a democrat Obama and Kerry donor who has magically morphed into not only a Republican — but a “conservative” candidate for AZ governor — it no doubt takes some time to get a handle on how to appropriately express yourself using your new persona while surviving a major case of political whiplash. Kari Lake even defended her donations to democrat presidential candidates, declaring, “A lot of people do that.”

How many Republicans?

Using her married last name Halperin, this* is just one of her donations. Zen Video is owned by her husband, Jeff, who made three separate donations to Obama, totaling $1,500 under his own name.

A former TV News teleprompter reader known for dropping the F-bomb on-air when she thought her mic was off, Kari Lake fell disastrously short when she labeled her recent fundraiser, “Back the Blue.” Attempting to use conservative support for law enforcement to give her event a boost, she obviously is unaware that the democrat party, defined by the jackass, identifies as “blue.” Even outraged democrats knew that as they reported Trump’s 2016 victory over Hillary, using the red/blue analogies (brief video) on the map.

Wiser Republicans, who are symbolized by the elephant, known for its long memory, embrace bright red. The conservative site you are currently reading is titled, Seeing Red AZ for a reason.

On the day of her Saturday event, Lake was still sending out emails saying, “It’s not too late to register.” Not a good sign for Lake, but proof that her campaign is headed south.

Rodney Glassman returns: Lacking expertise, absurdly announces for AZ AG

October 1, 2021

Party-switching dem preposterously compares himself to Presidents Reagan, Trump

In the movie Batman Returns, a character named The Penguin is described as a sewer-dwelling super villain intent on terrorizing the city. In Arizona politics there is a character named Rodney Glassman who has zero ability to strike fear in his many opponents, and is more aptly compared to the Energizer Bunny, the logo for Energizer batteries.

Glassman just keeps running and running. The leftist who cut his political teeth working as a D.C. staffer for radical U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, desperately desires political office. He has run for many and lost all but one, a Tucson City Council seat, from which he resigned before finishing his first term. Commitment takes a decidedly back seat to trying to grasp any political ring. Although Glassman suddenly has embraced the term “conservative” (slippery campaign ad) and now claims to be pro-life, he welcomed an endorsement from Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider just last year. He has run for every conceivable office including U.S. Senate, though his candidacy for democrat state chairman was the most telling. Had he won that position, unprincipled Rodney Glassman would have set policy for dems up and down the ballot to undercut Republican office holders and candidates.

Glassman is the only lawyer at the Beus Gilbert McGroder law firm to be listed with the iffy term “of counsel.” All of the others are partners, associates or members.

The Phoenix New Times revealed Glassman’s appalling lack of judgment in this report, Rodney Glassman raising cash for official who could vote to appoint him Assessor.

These are previous posts SRAZ has devoted to exposing conniving Glassman:

March 16, 2018:  Opportunist ex-Dem Glassman now GOP Corp. Com. candidate

July 15, 2018: Obvious cracks in AZ Corp. Com. candidate Glassman (Includes links to 2 exposés printed in other publications…one of which reveals Glassman‘s plagiarizing his college dissertation.) 

July 1, 2020:  Dem opportunist Rodney Glassman now a “conservative”

July 16, 2020: Lifelong “leopard” Glassman deviously changes his dem spots

July 27, 2020: Planned Parenthood endorsed “conservative” Rodney Glassman

Sept. 7, 2020:  Is political changeling Rodney Glassman seeking another job? 

SRAZ apologizes for the abundance of links, but Glassman’s renewed candidacy, now posing as a pro-life conservative, is too important to leave to chance. Knowledge is power.


Lowdown leftist local reporter gets his comeuppance

September 27, 2021

Boorish Fisher attempts to interject himself into legitimate interview with Rep. Mark Finchem

If you’ve ever mistakenly tuned in to PBS’ Journalist Roundtable hosted by Ted Simons, you’ve had a massive dose of head-spinning leftism…enough to keep any rational person from returning.

The stock-in-trade on the Public Broadcasting Service program are self-serving radicals fawning over one another’s blather that would only fly on the local taxpayer supported network.*

Arrogant Howie Fischer is a sometimes panelist. A radical, Fischer, the lone employee at his imposingly named Capitol Media Services, can be counted on to sarcastically wave snark and mockery in the direction of rationality. Conservatives are his red meat. With this instructional background provided for our readers who likely have better ways to spend their time than being insulted by liberal pomposity, we direct you to The Gateway Pundit, whose journalist Jordan Conradson has done a first-rate job of covering the Maricopa County 2020 ballot audit.

This is his recent headline: WATCH: AZ State Rep Mark Finchem – Sets Rude FAKE NEWS Howie Fischer Straight – “This Is HIS Interview Howie… That’s Shameful! I Have Never Seen You Stoop That Low.” Read the entire article for a dose of truth you won’t find anywhere else.

Rep. Mark Finchem, the front-runner in the race for Arizona Secretary of State, carries the golden endorsement of President Trump, which obviously makes him a prime target for Biden-supporting Fischer. 

*You’ll be enlightened by taking just 3 minutes to read Senior Fellow Mike Gonzalez’ commentary for The Heritage Foundation, “Stop Forcing Taxpayers to Fund Public Broadcasting.” The history from Pres. Lyndon Johnson through Pres. Donald Trump, including the role of a young White House lawyer named Antonin Scalia is fascinating. Gonzalez concludes with:

Thomas Jefferson, who never heard a broadcast, was undoubtedly right when he observed that “to compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagations of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical.”


Disney’s left turn has economic consequences

September 26, 2021

Earlier this year SRAZ posted, “Disney becomes “inclusive,” drops customary greeting.” It detailed the origins of Walt Disney’s vision, his patriotism and family values that the Disney name came to represent, and concluded with the corporation’s fall to the diversity and LGBQT agenda. Now the corporation has a Diversity Dashboard that outlines its hiring practices that only takes ethnicity, a genetic component over which none of us has any control, into account.

No longer are the theme parks simply a family friendly destination, but are now expensive indoctrination centers. Ticket prices for two days are listed as “from” (meaning upward of) $118 /day per person. For a family with 3 children, that translates to an unaffordable base price for many families — excluding food, hotel and parking.

Disney recently announced it will close at least 60 Disney stores in North America this year. Although the announcement attributed the massive closures to an increase in online shopping, there are many families that are protesting the leftward bent of Disney Company and refuse to support the social agenda that does not represent their values.

We do have a voice.


Hosp. staff using religious exemption to avoid vaccine must swear off OTC drugs

September 17, 2021

As he encouraged people to get vaccinated against Covid, Pope Francis sounded a lot like Jeb Bush on the topic of illegal immigration. Each of them called the actions they were encouraging an “act of love.”

Bush is now a former politician, remembered mostly for arrogantly sticking an exclamation point after his nickname during his failed presidential bid when the idea of a triadic dynasty proved to be more than even Republicans could tolerate. 

When there were calls to deny Biden communion due to his support of abortion, the pope bizarrely said that Catholic bishops should be pastors, not politicians. Apparently the pope excludes himself from that view, since he never hesitated to condemn Pres. Trump.

The Pope, known for interjecting himself into U.S. politics, and condemning the border wall that was being constructed on our southern border as “the greatest cruelty, to defend what?…” unconscionably comparing it to the Berlin wall that divided a German city, while conveniently disregarding the massive 50-foot-tall, ten-foot thick wall surrounding the fortress that is Vatican City, along with the Swiss Guard that function as its private military force.

We’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he likely was unaware the vaccines he was encouraging and thanking “God’s grace” for were created using fetal cell lines.

This comprehensive article provides background on the Arkansas hospital that is requiring all staff who claim a religious objection to also swear off taking commonly used, over-the-counter drugs that they allege (without proof) were developed using fetal cell lines. The list includes: Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, aspirin, Tums, Lipitor, Senokot, Motrin, ibuprofen, Maalox, Ex-Lax, Benadryl, Sudafed, albuterol, Preparation H, MMR vaccine, Claritin, Zoloft, Prilosec OTC, and azithromycin.


No jab, no food? Freedom dedicated France spirals out of control

August 24, 2021

Starvation of French citizens is drastic tool to compel acquiesce

France is imposing a dire state of affairs as illustrated on WND. Protesters have taken to the streets in the nation which so valued liberty that in 1885 it gifted America the glorious Statue of Liberty that stood as a beacon to legal immigrants arriving at Ellis Island in New York Harbor. For nearly 140 years, it has remained a symbol of freedom and friendship.

Previously a monarchy overthrown in the French Revolution the elites had ruled the peasants. Now freedom takes a back seat again as French President Emmanuel Macron, employing drastic measures, withholds basic necessities from those French citizens exercising their rights in refusing to subject themselves or their children to the Covid vaccine.

France has placed untenable restrictions on its citizens denying them vital fundamentals unless they fall in line allowing themselves to be injected with a vaccine against their will. The mandate will apply to everyone 12 and older beginning Sept. 30, 2021.

Tourists must also present a “health pass” or be denied the freedom to travel by public transportation, stay in hotels, eat in restaurants, attend sporting events or visit popular tourist locations, including the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower or Versailles. 


RINOcrat, egotist Recorder Stephen Richer “dost protest too much”

August 20, 2021

After receiving a gargantuan 38-page emailed “letter” from problem-plagued Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, the legendary quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet rings all too true as it epitomizes insincere overacting.

Stephen Richer, the novice politician who appeared to have a bright future within the Arizona Republican Party irreparably damaged himself with his insulting invectives hurled at President Donald Trump, referring to him as a “liar“ and “unhinged.”  Make no mistake; he was also aiming his wrath at loyal Trump supporters. His tirade rated a front page headline accompanying an oversize photo, unmistakably displaying his value to the leftwing local newspaper. The Maricopa County election audit, which he regards with contempt, has been emulated by other jurisdictions nationally, a fact ignored by Richer.

While Donald Trump can’t vote against Richer, Maricopa County conservatives can, which is why he is trying to inveigle himself back into the GOP camp.

Unable to make a point, the lawyer who should be better trained to clearly state his case, instead sent out a self-serving missive to GOP activists, bearing the lengthy title, “Dear Arizona Republicans: Let‘s do this right.  Let‘s build confidence. Let‘s move forward”  Yet, digging in his heels, he included this gem, “I stand by everything I’ve said over the past three months.”

We are not including the link, though Richer appears to have sent it out to the immediate world. If you didn’t receive it, it’s likely your dog did.

It’s doubtful many will be inclined to spend time reading much more than the cover letter, since 38-pages is a bizarre contrivance. Most of us have better ways to spend our time, although it’s clear Richer is more driven by egocentric urgency.

SRAZ previously wrote, “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.”

We stand by that vantage point.

Although Republicans rejoiced when Richer trounced single-term democrat Adrian Fontes, his election was hardly a runaway. Richer defeated 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. Richer’s current term ends January 2025. If he dares run again, he needs a reputable GOP primary challenger. It’s critically important.
