AZ Republic: Extra, extra!! Get your skewed news here!

March 18, 2021

Dying newspaper deserves its fate

In a bygone heyday, before the advent of free news available from countless sources, those aspiring to be well informed subscribed to newspapers. Many Americans had a hard copy hit their driveway in the early morning and another, more updated edition, was delivered in the afternoon. In Arizona The Arizona Republic and Phoenix Gazette fulfilled those roles. Owned by the publishing titan Pulliam family, the newspapers provided objective information to readers including a daily op-ed page and bore no resemblance to the arm of the democrat party that exists today. The Gazette, delivered six days a week, excluding Sunday, folded in 1997, after 116 years. The Trump-hating, Hillary and Biden-endorsing Arizona Republic, whose remaining employees voted to unionize following massive staff cutbacks including dumping longtime, Pulitzer-prize winning cartoonist Steve Benson, is hanging by a thread, after losing its building and finally being sold after repeatedly being on the auction block.

The seriously ailing, purveyor of conservative loathing and disinformation, the uni-opinion newspaper, which is bonded to promoting the illegal invasion at our southern border, even went so far as to threaten 75 million Trump voters, absurdly demanding theyrepentfor their transgression, underscoring why its circulation continues to plummet. The newspaper’s only hope for survival is to discontinue the hard copy editions and go all digital, which is a gamble that won’t play well with the mostly senior citizen readers. A headline pleads: “5 digital benefits of a subscription,” with the desperate hate-mongers in charge pledging, “You can play a vital role in supporting local journalism that you and your community can trust.”

The Phoenix Business Journal reported steep declines. Between 2017-2019, the Republic lost 30.3% of its circulation. Those abysmal numbers could only have increased in the intervening years.

A sampling of recent headlined reports we’re supposed to “trust”:

– “GOP’s ‘open borders’ frenzy is a distraction”

– “Ducey must stop anti-voting bills”

– “Has state’s GOP ever before been this crazy?”

– “Want to help the economy? Let more people out of jail”

– “Biden has one job: Fix the mess that Trump left us”

…and this classic example of hypocrisy, “We must call out hate everywhere.”

Think the AZ judiciary is not political? Think again

March 16, 2021

Proving the judicial apple doesn’t falls far from the appointing tree, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge John Hannah Jr. — appointed to the bench by hard-left Gov. Janet Napolitano — has ordered the Arizona Republican Party to pay $18,237.59 in legal fees. The party’s wrongdoing? The AZ GOP had the temerity to challenge the veracity of Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs’ mandating voting centers instead of more convenient polling places in the November 2020 election.

This absurd ruling came in response to a request by Hobbs, also a democrat, which the judge found to be “reasonable and appropriate.” Hobbs, next in line of ascension to the governor’s office, alleged the Republican Party was purposely delaying certification of the results and “not the adjudication of good faith claims.”

Devious Hobbs, who has never concealed her radical bent, previously tweeted that supporters of President Donald Trump were “neo-nazis.”

In 2007, SRAZ titled a revealing post,Merit takes a back seat in judicial appointments,” exposing Janet Napolitano’s then-recent judicial appointees. When the judicial charade, which claims to be “non-partisan” replaced Superior and Appellate Courts judicial elections in 1974, what was dubbed “merit selection” was deceptively touted as removing politics from the process. The result? Judges are appointed by a partisan governor from a final list sent by a partisan commission with members who are gubernatorially appointed.

After their appointment, judges only appear on the ballot for “retention,” which is a guarantee of permanency on the bench, since only three have been removed in nearly fifty years. The final list from which the governor selects is also bound by politics, allowing for no more than two-thirds to be from the same political party and constitutionally mandated to represent ethnic and gender diversity. The system has incrementalism built in since it originally was only in effect in Maricopa and Pima Counties.  As other counties have reached the 250,000 population threshold, they are instantly swept into the mix.

No good ever comes from voters giving up their rights after being told others know more than they do.

Biden’s dangerous and costly illegal alien con

February 19, 2021

51 Lawmakers warn Biden immigration order could make border crisis ‘Catastrophic Overnight’*

Within short order after being inaugurated, Joe Biden authorized the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021, an unfathomable bill which opens the border to all comers. At the core of the bill being fast-tracked is citizenship, which translates to voting rights and permanently increasing the size of the democrat party. That core element takes precedent over the fact that America is essentially in lock-down mode due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. There is a major thrust to vaccinate our populace, while the surge of El Salvadoran, Guatemalan, Honduran and Mexican nationals will be bringing in more disease — along with crime. Businesses have been shut down, with tens of thousands permanently closing, putting millions of Americans out of work. Why, then, does the Biden administration tell us the unemployment rate is down?

Schools are mostly virtual, which raises the question of how millions of what Biden terms “migrants” will become educated, learn English and our history, if they choose to assimilate as actual legally arriving immigrants have done for generations.

The Immigration Act of 1882 contained a “public charge” clause allowing the U.S. government to deny a visa to anyone classified as “likely at any time to become a “public charge” or dependent on government resources.

It was established by Congress and signed by President Chester A. Arthur. The provisions have expanded, with the Immigration and Nationality Act (enacted in 1952, and amended in 1965) which declares, “Any alien likely at any time to become a public charge” as inadmissible to the country and “those who have received public benefits within their first five years in the United States as deportable.”

Requiring respect for our sovereign border should not be a partisan issue.  The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, during democrat Bill Clinton’s presidency, strengthened U.S. immigration laws, adding penalties for illegal aliens who commit crimes while in the United States. It also raised the standards for sponsors of foreign nationals, requiring them to show financial capability and obligating them to reimburse the government for means-tested public benefits received by those they sponsor.

This paragraph is directly from the Biden White House’s “Fact Sheet” media release:

“The bill will stimulate our economy while ensuring that every worker is protected. The bill creates an earned path to citizenship for our immigrant neighbors, colleagues, parishioners, community leaders, friends, and loved ones—including Dreamers and the essential workers who have risked their lives to serve and protect American communities.”

Biden has also become a grammarian. His bill also changes definitions in the English language by altering the word “alien” to “noncitizen” in America’s immigration laws. Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow in The Heritage Foundation’s Edwin Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, clarifies the terminology in this illuminating article, Undocumented Immigrant’ Is a Made-Up Term That Ignores the Law.

This difficult to decipher mumbo-jumbo was, of course, also put out by the Biden administration‘s Bureau of Labor Statistics, supposedly gauging the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the American workforce. During the Trump administration, when the economy reached historic heights, the jobs report was issued monthly and was read with ease, since there was nothing to conceal.

Mark Cuban: “National anthem doesn’t represent America”

February 11, 2021

Who does Anthem Maverick Mark Cuban represent? Certainly not his own grandparents

Multi-billionaire Mark Cuban briefly toyed with the idea of running for president in 2020. In a sports crazed nation, the Dallas Maverick’s owner might have generated some success, but dropped out before having to address the realities of running the nation and interacting on the world stage. Flirting with self aggrandizing notions and then dropping them is not the purview of ordinary Americans.

The day after Cuban announced he had no plans to play the national anthem at any future home games, reinforcing a decision he implemented last season, NBA Chief Communications Officer Mike Bass released this statement on Wednesday:

“With NBA teams now in the process of welcoming back fans into their arenas, all teams will play the national anthem in keeping with longstanding league policy.”

“We respect and always have respected the passion people have for the anthem and our country,” according to Cuban’s flawed rationale. “But we also loudly hear the voices of those who feel that the anthem does not represent them. We feel that their voices need to be respected and heard, because they have not been.”

“Our hope is that going forward people will take the same passion they have for this issue and apply the same amount of energy to listen to those who feel differently from them,” he said. “Then we can move forward and have courageous conversations that move this country forward and find what unites us.”

Cuban had previously expressed support for players kneeling during the national anthem, saying “if they were taking a knee and they were being respectful, I’d be proud of them. Hopefully I’d join them.”

The un-American concept is all the more outlandish coming from a man whose own grandparents were immigrants from repressive Russia and Romania. His Russian-born paternal grandfather anglicized the family name from “Chabenisky” to “Cuban.” No doubt they felt pride in being Americans and having the ability to live in freedom and opportunity. Cuban’s father worked as an automobile upholsterer, who likely never dreamed his son would achieve such success in a country he now thumbs his nose at, for not being inclusive enough.

Conservative Republicans threatened by AZ Republic

January 18, 2021

Left-wing newspaper decrees Republicans must “repent” for being Trump-supporting sinners

Sunday’s edition of the barely surviving, Arizona Republic leaves no doubt as to what the newspaper thinks of the nearly 75 million Trump-supporting Republicans.

The lead/guest over-sized editorial topped with a cartoonish silhouette of President Donald Trump, continuing on to a jump page, carries this headline:

“No unity until defenders repent” along with this attempt at a menacing tagline:

“The people who have supported Trump need to come to terms with what they’ve done and with what they’ve allowed to happen — otherwise it will happen again.”

The obvious response is: “We can only hope.”

The shrinking, scandal-plagued Hillary-endorsing newspaper, which lost its building and parking garage in 2019 (readHomeless vagrant on borrowed time“) and has repeatedly been on the action block, has the temerity to question the integrity of both the elected President of the United States and his millions of supporters, who have been enthused by the non-politician businessman who has kept his campaign promises. They have camped out for days in rain, snow and oppressive heat to attend his national rallies. When subscriptions plunged, the newspaper, seeking to diminish the damage, absurdly announced it had received “death threats” for its endorsement. What actually happened were the phone lines were clogged with readers dropping their subscriptions, cutting off the newspaper‘s lifeline. For a newspaper to lose its subscribers is equivalent to death.

The  author of this genuine piece of dung posing as an editorial, to which we intentionally did not link, is Tom Nichols, a senior advisor to the malicious Lincoln Project which seeks to blacklist Trump administration employees from any future employment. He is a member of USA Today’s Board of Contributors. It’s no accident the two entities, (USA Today and the AZ Republic) both owned by Gannett, would be aligned since Trump and GOP hatred is their driving force.

George Mullen, writing for Town Hall, lists just ten of President Trump’s countless accomplishments “that make him one of the most effective presidents in U.S. history.” Read them here.

Tired of having your intelligence insulted? If you still subscribe to the Trump-hating, conservative-loathing Arizona Republic, it’s past time to cancel. Call 1-800-332-6733. You’ll reach someone in the Philippines, where the cash-strapped newspaper has its entire service related staff to save money. The minimum wage in Arizona is currently $12.15 per hour. In the Philippines the equivalent in dollars is less than half of that for non-agricultural workers.

US Corporations coordinate efforts to silence Trump supporters

January 12, 2021

Selective outrage and hypocrisy of the left exemplified by everything from silence on Obama’s disastrous Iran nuclear deal to calling looting mobs burning American cities “peaceful protesters”

Myriad corporations and tech titans are suspending political contributions to 147 members of congress —  who voted against the election certification in a joint session of congress last week.

The list includes: American Airlines, American Express, Amazon, AT&T, Best Buy, BlueCross BlueShield, BP, Charles Schwab, CISCO Systems, Citigroup, Coca Cola, Commerce Bank, Comcast, Conoco Philips, Dow Chemical, Facebook, General Electric, Goldman Sachs, Google, Hallmark Cards, Intel, JPMorgan, Marriott Hotels, MasterCard, Microsoft, 3M, Verizon, Visa…to name a few that are either suspending all donations or taking actions against specific individuals.

There is no doubt the effort was coordinated in order to prevent Republican voters from seeking alternative companies with which to do business. Many of us already took our business elsewhere when Bank of America donated a $Billion to BLM, which looted and torched American cities, tearing down national monuments, too ignorant of history to know that Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves and Gen. Ulysses S. Grant led union troops against the south. Both men were elected presidents and were Republicans.

When the anti-Bank of America fury became too potent to ignore, the bank later reconfigured the money as “economic development in the face of the pandemic.”

Coercive corporations, exemplified by BlueCross BlueShield  which has made significant contributions through the health insurance company’s BLUEPAC political action committee, donated $246,750 to GOP lawmakers during the 2020 cycle. The corporation announced it was ending donations to all Republicans who challenged the Electoral College results. Its announcement is disingenuous at best, claiming all of its donation are employee generated. How many democrats working for the corporation would be donating to Republican candidates? It concluding with this sentiment, “We also encourage you to connect with us on Facebook, check out our videos on YouTube and follow us on Twitter.”

These are all sources that have also clamped down on Republicans, even permanently shutting down President Trump’s Twitter account.

Then there’s the malicious anti-Trump Lincoln Project, which is creating a database of Trump administration officials in order to keep them from future employment. Given that lawyer Kellyanne Conway was integral to Donald Trump’s campaign as its manager and served as senior counselor for President Trump, would these employment restrictions extend to her? She is the wife of Lincoln Project’s blubbery George Conway.

AZ unionist teachers threaten another walkout

January 2, 2021

Scare tactics continue despite wage hikes

Educrats in Gilbert and Chandler Unified School Districts are threatening sickouts when school resumes January 5, 2021. It’s what they do best, as evidenced by the fact that Arizona students are woefully under-educated, though they are authorities on global warming and recycling while being propagandized — both subtly and overtly, with leftism, and short-shrifted on the foundations of our democracy, history, math, geography  and other basics. They won’t be able to sign their names since cursive is deemed unessential.

This Dec. 30, 2020 statement from the Chandler Education Association, which proudly declares its affiliations* with the AEA (AZ Education Association) and NEA (National Education Association unions) exemplifies the fact that too much is never enough for the teachers who walked out on over 840,000 students for nearly two weeks as they demanded a 20 percent wage increase for their part-time jobs. Gov. Doug Ducey foolishly capitulated, but even that wasn’t enough. This past November their allies put the unconscionable Proposition 208, deceptively titled, ”Invest in Education Act,” that incorporated an irrevocable tax “on the rich” which includes small business owners already struggling during the COVID-19 virus. It passed.

The Federalist headlines its excellent exposé, “Government Teachers’ Unions Unveil New COVID-19 Demand: Pay Us For Doing Nothing.” It exemplifies the demands of the Gilbert and Chandler educrats.

Arizona students are doing even worse on tests than their previously low scores. More than half who took the 2019 AzMERIT tests failed — for the FIFTH year in a row! This is the educrats’ highly touted program that measures what should be proficiency in student ability to comprehend basic math and reading skills. To conceal the unfathomable failure rate, though prepping specifically for the test, they simply changed the test name to AzM2.

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. 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. The Goldwater Institute joined the Arizona Chamber of Commerce in opposing slippery Prop. 208. These are  the lengthy lists of organization and elected leaders who stood in opposition to Prop. 208.

* Open Secrets/The Center for Responsive Politics shows the $millions the NEA and the AFT lobbying arms give to the most left-wing elected officials. The AFT gave not one thin dime to Republicans.

Distrust election results? Senator wants you dead

December 22, 2020

If you’ve ever thought democrats are unhinged, there is now indisputable proof sitting in congress. During a recent appearance on CNN, a far left network all too willing to promote her blather, New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen not only took issue with Americans who question the validity of the 2020 presidential election, she wants us put to death.

You read that right!

Shaheen outrageously claimed that Republican lawmakers, and we presume other citizens, who question the validity of the Harris/Biden election results “are bordering on sedition and treason.”

Her claim is particularly disturbing given the fact that federal law states that those who are found guilty of treason against the U.S. “shall suffer death.” The U.S. criminal code on treason is clear:

“Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

Shaheen, who supported Obamacare, is a pro-abortion radical who is only waiting until we are older than the innocent, pre-born lives she advocates snuffing out. Death appears to be her “go to” means of taking care of business.

Like Elizabeth Warren who professionally benefited from alleging a non-existent minority status, Jeanne Shaheen claims to be related to Pocahontas. Shaheen contends she can trace her relationship back 12 generations. It’s that democrat cheekbone thing.

Hunter Biden admits he’s the focus of tax fraud investigation

December 10, 2020

Chinese business dealings under scrutiny

In this December 9, 2020 statement bizarrely released by the Harris/Biden transition team, Hunter Biden admits he is the subject of a tax fraud investigation, and sets the stage for laying the blame on his “professional tax advisors.” It includes a message from his father proclaiming his deep pride in his son, “who has fought through difficult challenges.”

The Justice Department is investigating the finances of Joe Biden’s son, including scrutinizing some of his Chinese business dealings. The tax investigation was launched in 2018, the year before Joe Biden announced his presidential candidacy.

A 2019 New Yorker report on Hunter Biden detailed his business work in China, including accompanying his father on a 2013 trip to Beijing, where he met with a business associate. He also acknowledged having received a 2.8 carat diamond from a Chinese energy tycoon interested in liquefied natural gas projects.

Unprincipled Hunter Biden — an admitted alcoholic and cocaine addict, who romanced his newly dead brother’s widow, and had to be legally forced to provide support to a child he fathered out of wedlock, while he was married — had no background in energy and didn’t speak Ukrainian. Still he was brought on as a Burisma board member at $50,000 a month by the Ukrainian energy company. He wasn’t being paid for his lack of expertise, but for access to his then-vice president father.

Mainstream media and big tech colluded to intentionally suppress the information that was initially reported on October 14, by the New York Post. (Read the linked information.)

Other print and network news sources were willing to do whatever it took to get leftist Joe Biden elected, regardless of his increasing signs of dementia. They were buoyed by Kamala Harris waiting in the wings. As a U.S. Senator, Harris voted to the left of registered socialist Bernie Sanders. Non-partisan GovTrack ranked Harristhe most politically left compared to All Senators.”

Media ignored solid evidence of corruption in emails and documents found on a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden showing that he used his father’s influence to enrich himself through business deals in Ukraine and China, and that his father not only facilitated those efforts, but may have benefited financially

The Trump-haters at the radical Arizona Republic never touched the burgeoning story, so fearful were the leftists in charge that Arizona would once again strongly support the reelection of President Donald Trump.

After enduring coordinated contrivances and unrelenting ridicule over four years coupled with untrustworthy election results, (important and updated information from The Gateway Pundit) they appear to have gotten their wish, but it ultimately won’t be enough to save the failing newspaper, whose circulation decline is among steepest of Gannett’s 200 newspapers.*

CNN’s Jeff Zucker confirms unbiased news a fallacy

December 6, 2020

Network’s mission is promoting anti-Trump propaganda

James O’Keefe of Project Veritas recently released a series of undercover tapes of CNN’s president Jeff Zucker telling how he skews the news for public consumption.

Zucker is a Trump-hating leftist who makes it clear what he thinks the public should know and what he thinks is too incendiary and damaging to democrats and should be suppressed.

Zucker’s arrogance is astonishing as he sets himself as the ultimate authority determining what information is suitable for what he clearly views as the moronic masses he considers under his control.

This crucial information is directly from Project Veritas’ website.
