Unionist teachers vote to strike, ditch students, lose parents

April 20, 2018

Union goons use children as pawns, demonstrate education is not their priority

Gov. Doug Ducey made an enormous miscalculation when he thought he could placate teachers with a colossal 20% pay increase. With their Thursday night vote to stage a walkout, they have proven that nothing is good enough to satisfy them for the 8½ months a year they work.

Teachers pay dues to left-wing unions. Ducey should never have entered the negotiation mix.  District school boards set wages. He needs to govern the state and let the teachers use their unions which spend $millions on far left candidates and issues. Look at the last column on the final chart* to see where the “underpaid” teachers send their money.

This is an instructive memory jogger: NEA General Counsel Bob Chanin told the truth as he spoke candidly on the occasion of his retirement. This is what the agenda actually is. It is not America’s public school children, as he plainly states. The National Education Association (NEA*) supports liberal candidates and issues to the exclusion of Republicans. Its members are the people who are influencing American students, not only politically but also instructing them in the methods of mob rule.

Now the emboldened National Federation of Teachers (check this out) has announced it is severing its ties with Wells Fargo Bank, no longer recommending the bank as a preferred mortgage lender to its 1.7 million members,  over the bank’s association with the Second Amendment supporting NRA.  Exercise your rights. Join “freedom’s safest place” today.

Students learn the art of mob rule from teachers

April 18, 2018

Emulating their protesting teachers who staged walkouts, abandoning their students to demand an outrageous 20% pay hike, the kids who have learned little educationally have become adept at demanding.  Not understanding the significance of the Second Amendment, they want gun control, and the brash, under-educated students want it now.

Here in Arizona, they are going to the state capitol — possibly for the first time — to stage a “die in” to protest school shootings by lying on the ground in a mock death pose.  Using mob-like tactics, they also plan to occupy several government buildings to demand Gov. Doug Ducey support stricter gun control laws. The demands and antics are coordinated with students nationwide.

The date was chosen to commemorate the Columbine High School massacre in Littleton, Colorado. In 1999, two maniacal students killed twelve students and a teacher, before killing themselves. The assassins deliberately chose the date to coincide with the birthday of Nazi mass murderer Adolf Hitler.

Organizers are not satisfied with Gov. Ducey’s school safety plan which includes placing officers in Arizona schools.

The National School Walkout has a Walkout Planning Guide and announced this three part goal:

  1. Hold elected officials accountable
  2. Promote solutions to gun violence
  3. Demystify and engage students in the political system

If the students were properly educated, there would be no need to “demystify” our system of government.

A decidedly liberal approach is manifest in this tip to protesters titled, “A Note on Safety and Privilege.” White privilege is the latest crime for which atonement must be made, and these radicals haven’t left that out of the equation:

“Guidance on how to plan your actions to ensure that no one is asked to take on a role that they are not comfortable with, and how to be mindful of the fact that not everyone walking out faces an equal level of risk.”

The Arizona legislature is scheduled to begin debate on the issue later this week. According to the daily newspaper’s report, student marchers have derided the governor’s efforts, calling it “51 pages of utter BS.” They also view any efforts at reform as placating the National Rifle Association.

The demonstrators need to talk to Kim Corban, (brief video) who calls the National Rifle Association, “Freedom’s Safest Place.”

These are the educrat liberals behind the Network for Public Education, the moving force propelling the anti-Second Amendment organization, propagandizing* America‘s easy to manipulate under-educated youth.

Speaker Ryan fires parting amnesty shot at Americans

April 14, 2018

Remember when we were sold a bill of goods on wunderkind Paul Ryan? As Mitt Romney’s 2012 vice presidential running mate he was touted as a numbers cruncher extraordinaire who would bring a depth of knowledge and great insight to budget issues

With his recently announced plans to retire from Congress, few tears are being shed for the Wisconsin Representative who has spent two decades wallowing in the iffy realm of bipartisanship and accomplishing little. Conservatives view him less affectionately than liberals such as Washington state liberal Democrat Patti Murray with whom he co-authored a 2017 tax bill. Apparently he was unable to find a willing Republican Senate cosponsor.  As House Speaker, Ryan gave Donald Trump only begrudging support as the GOP presidential nominee, waffling along the way.

More egregious than Ryan’s enmity towards President Trump is his McCain-like aisle crossing to forge an amnesty scheme before he leaves Congress.  As his parting gift to America’s citizens, Ryan will push his open borders agenda during his last months in Congress, telling  media sources that he is interested in passing an amnesty for millions of illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for Obama’s self-admitted, illegitimately created (video) Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. “Childhood Arrivals” is a misnomer since there is no verification process.  The age limit is 36, ensuring more than a few are grandparents.

Breitbart News reports in a comment to Fox News’ Chad Pergram, Ryan said he would “certainly” be interested in passing a DACA amnesty before his term ends.

Ryan, who hypocritically had a fence constructed around his family estate, said that his main focus after passing a budget to keep the federal government open was to pass an amnesty for DACA illegal aliens, granting between 800,000 to 3.5 million permanent authority to stay in the U.S.

The aim of such an amnesty is ultimately rewarding illegal aliens enrolled in the program with a  pathway to U.S. citizenship, which comes with tremendous costs for American citizens. Such an amnesty would put more citizen children of illegal aliens — known as “anchor babies” — on federal welfare, while American taxpayers would be left with an estimated $26 billion bill.  Additionally, about one in five DACA illegal aliens, after an amnesty, would end up on food stamps, while at least one in seven would go on Medicaid.

The U.S. generously admits over one million legal immigrants a year —- often at the expense of American workers and students — as they compete for jobs and university placements. Ryan’s scheme would give amnestied illegal aliens the opportunity to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country, through a family reunification process known as chain migration.

A DACA amnesty will trigger a border surge that potentially triples the number of illegal aliens breaching our southern border. Since DACA’s inception, over 2,000 recipients of the program have been ejected due to criminal involvement or gang violence. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released this report detailing the extent of the gang surge last year.


Teachers behaving badly demand 20% raises

April 3, 2018

These are role models?

We’ve been reading about teachers walking out of their classrooms and abandoning their students as they don red tee shirts protesting what they claim are low wages. Bear in mind they get the summer off and a week-long mini vacations for the now neutered Winter and Spring breaks (previously Christmas and Easter). Thanksgiving is not a single day off for teachers.

Early release days and numerous teacher planning days pepper the calendar (this district was randomly chosen) that also gives days off for “teacher collaboration.” Factor in Martin Luther King and Presidents’ Days, Labor Day, Veterans‘ Day and Memorial Day, and it’s easy to see that teachers are idle when the rest of us are expected at work.

Still, they march and loudly protest while demanding a hefty 20 percent raise. Have you ever received such a pay hike?

Some also notch up their frustrations as we’ve recently seen with married female teacher, Brittany Zamora, 27, who was engaged in a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old boy in her class. She faces nine counts of sexual conduct with a minor, two counts of molestation of a child, and one count of furnishing harmful material to a minor.

Within days of that obscenity, we’re treated to the report of Ryan Prassas, 36, a local high school math teacher who got drunk after a night on the town with the mother of a 14-year-old, and ordered the girl to drive — after roughing them up, He’s been arrested and charged with a felony and misdemeanors. Was he fired? Nope. He’s still on staff, using “personal leave time.” Those administrators at Trevor Browne are so accommodating.

The rest of us would be fired if we were arrested under such circumstances, didn’t show up for work or tried demanding a 20 percent pay increase.

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. Teachers protest and school districts 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 purchases would make its way to schools.

How is it that “underpaid” mostly leftist teachers are able to send union dues specifically earmarked to fund mostly liberal politicians?  These are the people who spend more time influencing American students than their parents do. Ponder why leftist Barack Obama and self-declared Socialist Bernie Sanders cornered the youth vote.

Open Secrets/The Center for Responsive Politics shows the $ millions the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) lobbying arms give to the most left-wing elected officials. The AFT gave not one thin dime to Republicans.

Read 10 Facts You May Not Know About Education in Arizona. It’s news you need and aren’t getting. Armed with the facts, it’s time for informed parents to march. The only roadblock is they have jobs where their presence is required. And unlike teachers, they don’t have the luxury of frequent half days, lengthy holiday vacations or the entire summer off.


Latest illegal fraud: Pairing invasion with Holy Week

April 2, 2018

President Trump astutely reacts by calling off DACA deal

Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) details the latest invasion technique being used by what is described as “over a thousand” well trained Central American illegal aliens, boasting about making their way through Mexico to the United States, where their plans include claims of seeking asylum. This travesty is being carried out in connection with Holy Week, in conjunction with a wink and a nod from the Mexican government which has allowed the mob to pass through Mexico.

The invaders, about 80 percent Hondurans, are sophisticated enough to utilize technology both in putting together their well organized “caravan,” and recruiting and organizing participants. According to CIS reporter Kausha Luna, the group has a name, a slogan, and an outrageous mission statement — while seeking financial benefactors on Facebook.

”Our mission is to provide shelter and safety to migrants and refugees in transit, accompany them in their journey, and together demand respect for our human rights.”

Their slogan is “Migrantes en la lucha” (“Migrants in the Fight”).

Just days ago, the caravan set out from Tapachula (in Mexico, due west of Honduras) and began its trek northward. The group chanted “We are migrants. We are not criminals. We are workers.” 

One thing is certain, the invaders are neither studious nor educated workers, with degrees in science, math or engineering that would benefit America.

According to Classbase which reports on worldwide education systems, “The 6 years of Honduran primary school education are free, although less that 32% of pupils receive their educational grounding without repeating grades. These children represent only half of the original school entrants, and will have taken an average of 9.4 years to complete this phase.”

CIS’ Luna writes, “The group practiced security protocols, including formations which called for the men of the group to form a wall around the women and children. Moreover, the Central Americans made their way to Mexico’s Commission for Refugee Assistance and made calls for better compliance with international and national laws, faster processing of asylum applications, and an increase in acceptance rates.”

NumbersUSA has a compilation of additional information detailing the slippery invasion scheme, including outrageous demands for open borders and asylum access, along with an end to deportations.

According to the director of Pueblo Sin Fronteras — People Without Borders —- which announced the invasion intentions, from April 5 to April 9, a series of workshops will be hosted in Puebla, Mexico, by U.S. and Mexican immigration lawyers. The workshops will provide legal guidance on the issue of claiming asylum or refuge status in the United States.

In short, brassy invaders are demanding American citizens relinquish our country to them, as they replicate the corruption, criminality and penchant for depressing property values once they arrive here, by replicating the barros they left.

In response, President Trump  tweeted, “NO MORE DACA DEAL!”

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

 Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!

Teen anti-gun marchers, influenced by leftists, descend on DC, other cities

March 25, 2018

Teen mobs led by liberal celebrities march throughout USA

Under-educated students who haven’t been effectively taught the history of our nation’s founding and the enduring greatness of our American Constitution, are flexing their political muscle and threatening to remove members of congress who support the Second Amendment.

Think about that.

Many of them will be first time voters during this fall’s midterm elections. Voter registration activists were among throngs of young Americans who marched for tighter gun laws on Saturday, signing up thousands of soon-to-be voters who want to eject lawmakers who oppose gun control.  Organizers of the voter registration drive hoped to sign up at least 25,000 participants in the DC march alone, a promising boost for Democrats.

Estimates of the March for Our Lives crowd size ranged in the hundreds of thousands, who lemming-like flocked to DC as they flock to rock concerts. Since they are teens, the question is who financed their trek to the nation’s capitol, where food and lodging are not inexpensive. Did they all have parental consent? With or without consent, we find that their benefactors were the left-wing Hollywood elite, who provided funding and buses for the trip. The NAACP was among the co-sponsors of the event, with Martin Luther King, Jr’s young granddaughter calling for the elimination of all guns. Breitbart provides info on the celebs.

This is 17-year-old David Hogg, (video) a survivor of the Parkland Florida high school massacre. Seventeen of his classmates were slaughtered by a crazed, recently expelled fellow student who should have been on the FBI’s watch list, and disallowed to purchase a gun, since the police had been called to the family home two dozen times prior to his murderous rampage at the school.

Rather than engendering compassionate action, cocky, foul-mouthed Hogg uses his new-found status to disparage parents, senior citizens, Florida’s Gov. Rick Scott and issues threats to congress and the Second Amendment. And wouldn’t you know?  He‘s an aspiring journalist. In his profanity laced interview, Hogg calls himself the NRA’s “worst nightmare.”

HeadCount conducts voter registration drives at concerts, and claims it has registered over 500,000 young voters since 2004 — “translating the power of music intro real action.” Missing is any mention of learning about our system of government or the views of individual candidates. These are liberals on the rise. Though they claim to be disconnected from a political party, they direct people to the AFL-CIO union scoreboard and announce, “We balance the power of the wealthy,” (those are the job creators, folks) whom they claim exploit workers — referring to Right to Work laws as “racist.”

Rock the Vote, calls Arizona a “vote blocking state,” claiming it restricts voter rights, appears on DiscovertheNetworks.org: A Guide to the Political Left. RTV also works to register and mobilize voters aged 18-29 to support left-wing Democrat political candidates. Like HeadCount, it forms partnerships with music-industry and popular-culture icons who share the organization’s left-wing values, and use their celebrity status to influence the opinions of young voters.

If your kids are concert goers, you need to get up to speed on these insidious groups and their agendas. Who would have thought music would become a political menace to our Constitutional freedoms?


Why do perverts contribute to Kyrsten Sinema?

March 19, 2018

U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, CD-9, has gone to great lengths to clean up her image. The foul-mouthed Democrat had a lot to bury before recrafting herself as a soft spoken, sympathetic and attractive candidate who won election despite her acknowledged atheism and bisexuality. 

When sworn in, Sinema who attended BYU but ditched the LDS faith in which she was raised, emulated Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to the U.S. Congress. Ellison insisted on using the Koran for his oath. Sinema also refused to take her oath of office on the Bible, opting to place her hand on a copy of the Constitution. Conservative commentator Dennis Prager addresses the consequences of this hubris.

 Sinema not only dropped her harsh demeanor, glasses and weight, she went to great lengths to conceal her closeness to Barack Obama and her previous Cinco de Mayo and May Day greetings in The People’s World Weekly Communist newspaper. She even developed an election-based affinity for our military, which she previously vilified. To no one’s surprise, the pro-amnesty for illegals Sinema was endorsed by the Arizona Republic newspaper.

Using caginess, in the swing district, Sinema a supporter of Obamacare, has learned to turn a phrase for optimum benefit:

“I used to say that I wanted universal health-care coverage in Arizona, which went over like a ton of bricks. Turns out, Arizonans hear the word ‘universal’ and think ‘socialism’— or ‘pinko commie.’ But when I say that I want all Arizonans to have access to affordable, quality health care, Arizonans agree wholeheartedly. Same basic idea, different language.”

As a member of the AZ legislature and an  early supporter of same-sex marriage, she mockingly blasted women who devote themselves to their families rather than working outside the home. Her crude comment was: “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f**k are we really talking about here?” Following the spirit of unity Dems claim to embrace, Sinema derided conservatives as“Neanderthals.”

 Read more about her in this Sept. 2012 SRAZ post, titled, Kyrsten Sinema: “Far-left radical AZ CD 9 Dem exposed.” Sinema is pictured with her far left gal pal, Janet Napolitano.

Now for the second time she’s had to unload a sizable campaign contribution from questionable sources, as reported in the local newspaper. The most recent was nearly $34,000 from Ed Buck, (born Buckmelter) the homosexual rights advocate who waged a recall war against Republican former Gov. Evan Mecham, initiated before he even assumed office. Buck was found with a dead, naked house guest who died of a methamphetamine overdose while watching male porn on a mattress on Buck’s living room floor, casting a taint on his contribution.

In April, Sinema had to ditch the $53,400 she received from those with ties to Backpage.com, a website that authorities say knowingly accepted ads offering sex with underage girls.

 Sinema’s appeal to perverts should raise the antenna of every rational voter in the state. Sinema is now running for the AZ U.S. Senate post soon to be vacant through the forced retirement of Jeff Flake, whose 18% approval rating convinced Flake he was unelectable in Arizona.  Flake remains arrogant enough to talk about considering a presidential bid to unseat President Donald Trump in 2020.

 Dr. Kelli Ward, the lone conservative in the U.S. Senate race, deserves our vote and support. She has what it takes to make us proud.
