Nancy Pelosi fears Joe Biden’s debate exposure

September 26, 2020

Terror precedes Calamity Joe’s need to speak coherently during three debates

Fearful Nancy Pelosi, trying her damndest to give cover to blithering Joe Biden, has once again said she does not think Barack Obama’s former vice president should debate President Donald Trump ahead of the November election, saying,“ Why bother? He (President Trump) doesn’t tell the truth.”

Now in his third bid for the presidency, Biden shouldn’t need a hovering protector. Truth is a problem Biden has long had trouble with, being outed for plagiarism and outright lies

Democrat House Speaker Pelosi weighed in on the race this week after having previously said in August she was against Biden debating President Trump, stating she didn’t want the forums to become an “exercise in skullduggery.”

With rare exceptions, Biden has spent the last several months holed up in his basement bunker, even jumbling prepared lines he has before him when he attempts to speak via video. Long known as a gaffe machine, his obvious mental decline, which his handlers tried to lay off to a stutter is increasingly concerning. Biden has a long history of plagiarism and outright lies, even claiming he was the first person in his family to go to college which he had to retract when the truth was exposed. He dropped out of the 1988 race after only three months.

Asked by co-host Gayle King during an interview on “CBS This Morning” whether she still believed the former vice president should skip the three scheduled debates, Pelosi gushed, “Oh, I do. Not that I don’t think he’ll be excellent. I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth and, actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States.” She continued: “He and his henchmen are a danger, with their comments, are a danger to our democracy. So I don’t want to give him…I mean…why bother? He doesn’t tell the truth.”

To her credit, Gayle King countered, “But Speaker Pelosi, that’s what people say is the problem. Your language, to some, is just as egregious as what they’re saying. By calling the president’s people “henchmen,” some could say that’s just as insulting as what he’s saying about you.”

“Well, I don’t care what he has to say about me,” Pelosi boasted. “Every knock from him is a boost [for me]. If he wants to help me raise money, he can keep knocking me. But I’m speaking truth.”

The rest of us are left to wonder which of the women in Biden’s life has the greater sway: Jill Biden who prays he’ll cut the political mustard, or Nancy Pelosi, who fears he won’t.

 


Priest has congregants renounce their “white privilege” during BLM prayer

September 3, 2020

Black Lives Matter militants being promoted in Houses of Worship

A Catholic church in New York City recently hosted a Black Lives Matter prayer session where white congregants were asked to renounce their “white privilege” in the name of “racial justice.”

During the prayer held in St. Xavier Catholic Church worshipers were led in repeating the words of Father Kenneth Boller, who had decorated the altar with giant portraits of George Floyd, Breanna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery.

“Do you affirm that white privilege is unfair and is harmful to those that have it and those who do not? Yes,” Fr. Boller says, leading parishioners to answer in unison.

In July, Bishop Timothy Doherty, of the Diocese of Lafayette in Indiana suspended Rev. Theodore Rothrock, an Indianapolis Catholic priest from public ministry for rationally calling out Black Lives Matter activists in a church bulletin:

“The only lives that matter are their own and the only power they seek is their own. They are wolves in wolves clothing, masked thieves and bandits, seeking only to devour the life of the poor and profit from the fear of others. They are maggots and parasites at best, feeding off the isolation of addiction and broken families, and offering to replace any current frustration and anxiety with more misery and greater resentment.”

Following his suspension, Father Rothrock obediently issued an apology for speaking the truth.

Don’t be fooled by sanctimonious clergy of all denominations, who too often forget their mission and hop on the far left train. BLM partially funded by anti-America Socialist multi-billionaire George Soros, promotes arson, looting and civil unrest across the nation and has received nearly $2 billion from corporate coalitions (shocking list) that are actually funding the dismantling of America.

The Vortex, a vocal Catholic site founded by “Church Militant,” Michael Voris, exposes the fact that BLM is anti-Catholic, calling it “straight up Marxist.”

AZ election “sabotage” claims linked to Dem SOS Hobbs

August 16, 2020

Lunacy of the Soros-led left exposed

The Breitbart report begins with these words:

“Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D) accused the Trump administration of attempting to “sabotage” the United States Postal Service ahead of Election Day and is demanding an investigation, as detailed in a letter on Friday to state Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R).”

This is a prime example of what American voters can expect when they elect Socialist Soros’ approved Democrats to office, but especially so when they are in charge of overseeing state elections.

Leftist Katie Hobbs a partisan lackey of Barack Obama, is following the former president’s unfounded attacks, deplorably claiming President Trump is attempting to suppress the vote by “actively kneecap [ing] the postal service.”

The USPS is mired in debt and admits it is unable to verify the timely reliability of mail-in ballots. This letter is identical to those sent to election officials, national governors, and the District of Columbia alerting them to the risks associated with mail-in ballots.

Arrogant Obama is unable to appropriately sideline himself as other past presidents have done once their terms were over. It’s not in his DNA. He also has the same concerns of the majority of Americans about the cognitive fitness and diminished mental clarity of his former Vice President Joe Biden — now heading the Democrat presidential ticket — and wants to ensure Kamala Harris’ contingent presidency.

President Donald Trump is contentiously doing the job Americans overwhelmingly elected him to do. He deserves a second term.


AZ teachers abandon students again

August 14, 2020

AZ Gov. Ducey should emulate Pres. Reagan’s handling of union strikers 

Mass resignations of teachers are occurring in two East Valley public school districts in the wake of schools reopening during the COVID-19 virus. 

Although the majority of parents and health officials want students back in school, the teachers are not only objecting, but are taking a permanent hike. According to news reports, other teachers plan to abandon classes in a solidarity protest with those who have resigned. That’s what they do best since U.S. education standards have been falling for years.

Pew Research Center 2017 data show U.S. students’ dismal academic achievement on science, math and reading scores significantly lag behind those of their peers in Singapore, Hong Kong, Estonia and Taiwan — to name a few

This April 27, 2018 report, “#REDS for ED: Union thugs demand more $ for less,” is worthy of review bringing relevant background to today’s topic.

Gov. Doug Ducey, a McCain protégé, created this monster scenario when he caved to the far-left unionist teacher’s* demands after they walked out for over a week following 24-year-old uncredentialed hip hop music teacher and avowed Socialist Noah Karvelis.

Taxpayers are the teacher’s employers and have a right to expect classes resume. Imagine if necessary government and utility company employees or hospital personnel unilaterally decided they would walk off their jobs due to concerns over conditions over which they had no control. They would be fired and replaced, as the teachers should be.

In 1981 President Ronald Reagan handled the 11,359 PATCO union strikers who walked off their Air Traffic Controller jobs in violation of his order for them to return to work in this instructive manner:

 

In addition, Reagan declared a lifetime ban on the rehiring of the strikers by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). On August 17, the FAA began accepting applications for new air-traffic controllers. On October 22, the Federal Labor Relations Authority decertified PATCO.

A few 2020 AZ post-Primary Election lessons

August 5, 2020

In-person voter-turnout high, despite pandemic

Arizona’s Primary Election results are revealing. The takeaways are negative campaigning, Republicans cozying up to the left and unchecked arrogance are sure-fire career enders. Heather Carter, who exemplifies a RINO, brutally took on conservative incumbent Nancy Barto in the Legislative District 15 State Senate race. Carter spent wildly on televised ads that purposely mischaracterized Barto. Carter is trailing Barto by 48.8% to  51.2%.

Rodney Glassman, a political opportunist and longtime Democrat who has repeatedly run for and lost as a card-carrying leftist endorsed by Planned Parenthood, magically contorted himself into a “conservative,” lost again as he challenged incumbent Republican Maricopa County Assessor Eddie Cook. Glassman, who previously ran for numerous offices as a dem, including the U.S. Senate and AZ Democrat Party chairman, chose what he considered to be a low profile seat he obviously hoped to use as a launching pad for higher office. County Treasurer Royce Flora, a Republican who foolishly ran an in-tandem campaign with Glassman, lost by a whopping 15.4% to former state legislator John Allen, a solid Republican, —  proof that voters are paying attention, and don’t bond with flimflammers.

Daniel McCarthy, inexperienced but possessing a meg-dose of arrogance, evident in his U.S. Senate campaign slogan, “Demand Daniel,” was soundly thrashed by over 50 points late last night by incumbent Sen. Martha McSally, who has been endorsed by President Donald Trump. McCarthy, who calls himself a conservative, manufactures in China, a makeup removal product created by his wife, a fact he called “irrelevant.” It was reported that he told a reporter and photographer who arrived masked at the election night pizza party, that they should remove their masks, calling the pandemic a “hoax,” and warning them to “stop spreading fear,” while he was accompanied by a security detail and had a handgun tucked inside his waistband.

In the Maricopa County Sheriff’s race, former 6-term Sheriff Joe Arpaio, attempting to make a comeback, is barely trailing (36.9 % to 36.7%) his ingrate former chief deputy Jerry Sheridan. Had there not been another candidate without a hope of winning and a write in, both siphoning votes, this would have been an easy victory for the popular former sheriff.

The Maricopa County Recorder’s race went as expected, with well-qualified Republican Stephen Richer taking an easy win over perpetual candidate Clair “Van the radio man” Van Steenwyk, who has never won a race.

GOP U.S. Reps. Andy Biggs (CD-5), Debbie Lesko (CD-8) and David Schweikert (CD-6) had no Primary challengers. Congressman Paul Gosar (CD-4) easily vanquished his by over 25%.

Republicans activists can be proud of their efforts, but must rev them up even higher in advance of the November 3, 2020 General Election, when we must reelect President Donald Trump. His leadership is needed now more than ever.


Overindulged, undereducated mobs protest law enforcement in Tempe

July 28, 2020

Capitulation rather than incarceration emboldens criminal mobs, leads to increased destruction, violence

The most reprehensible trend sweeping our nation this summer are the mobs of anarchist thugs taking over cities, setting fires, seriously injuring responding police, destroying property, including police cars, toppling historic monuments, looting and engaging in mayhem. This is all in the name of Black Lives Matter, and ostensibly in tribute to George Floyd, a career criminal, high on illicit drugs and an unlikely martyr but for his death at the knee of a white Minneapolis police officer. Floyd was restrained while resisting arrest for passing a counterfeit $20 bill. The officer has been charged with second degree murder and is currently in jail awaiting trial as are three officers who did not participate, but did nothing to stop what turned out to be Floyd’s suffocation. One officer was a new hire.

Monday the mob took over portions of Tempe, blocking the Mill Avenue Bridge to call attention to two other deaths, one in 2016, the other a criminal robbing a local pharmacy.

The protest had less to do with deaths than with leftist politics as evidenced by the involvement of Young Democratic Socialists of America (YDSA) and Tempe Against Police Violence, bent on ending immunity from lawsuits against law enforcement officers doing their job.

As mobs take to the streets in cities controlled by Democrats across America, they stand as testament to overindulgent upbringing, where parents give too much and expect too little, where schools no longer award merit, but hand out participation certificates, so as not to offend the sensibilities of those who didn’t achieve meritorious levels in academics or athletics. The level playing field is Marxism in its purest form.

These vandals did not spring from thin air. They were indoctrinated in government schools by far-left teachers, taught climate change instead of American and world history and recycling instead of geography. Their parents were too busy to pay attention and indulged them rather than engaged them. Wanton thuggery, ignorance and lack of respect is the result.

The Gateway Pundit headlines its June 27th post,We Asked Our Readers to Send Photos of the Democrat Party Sanctioned Destruction and Rioting in their Community — We Were Shocked at What They Sent In.”  You will be, too.


Planned Parenthood endorsed “conservative” Rodney Glassman

July 27, 2020

RETAIN EDDIE COOK AS ASSESSOR

Rodney Glassman, who has repeatedly and unsuccessfully run for public office as a Democrat, is back again, this time as self declared ‘conservative” running for Maricopa County Assessor. Just two years ago in 2018, Glassman carried the union label as he appeared on the UFCW Local 99 endorsement list along with Democrats running for statewide, congressional, district and school board elections.

Glassman, who bears no allegiance to any party or position, is a political opportunist who can magically transform himself better than Erik Weisz who morphed into Houdini.

Misguided conservatives who are supporting him might be surprised to know that in his previous political incarnations, he was the darling of both local and national Planned Parenthood leadership. In 2012 when Democrat Glassman ran for the U.S. Senate challenging John McCain, he won the endorsement of both Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona:

“This election is crucial, and we need leaders in the U.S. Senate who will stand strong against attempts to restrict women’s access to basic health care and who will champion policies that make that health care more available to all women,” said Cecile Richards, then-president of the national Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “Rodney Glassman’s record of public service and charitable giving stands on its own, and he is a proven advocate for women’s health and rights.”

To pro-abortion advocates, women’s “reproductive health care and rights” is code talk for the unrestricted ability to kill pre-born human babies.

“The voters in Arizona are tired of politics as usual from their elected officials who represent them in Washington,” said Bryan Howard, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona. “They want to elect a champion of women’s health, and Rodney Glassman is that candidate. He is committed to standing up for women and families by putting commonsense health care needs ahead of ideology and politics.”

Incumbent Maricopa County Assessor Eddie Cook is a man of integrity, a reliable, conservative community leader, technology expert and former member of the Gilbert Town Council where he served for nearly a decade. Cook was unanimously appointed by the Board of Supervisors as Maricopa County Assessor over 10 other GOP applicants — including Glassman — when his predecessor was removed after being charged with adoption related felonies in multiple states. Eddie Cook is restoring trust and accountability to the office, eliminating waste and saving taxpayers money. Take time to read his priorities and accomplishments.

This is an important election. It’s crucial to retain Eddie Cook as Assessor.  Don’t be conned by the biggest signs placed by wealthy political changeling Rodney Glassman, desperate for a win to use as a launching pad for grander schemes. His current intent is to buy his way into office…any office…to facilitate his future plans.

Primary Election Day is Tues. Aug. 4, 2020. Polls will be open from 6:00 AM – 7:00 PM. The last day to vote early in person is Fri. July 31. Mail back early ballots by Wed. July 29. Maricopa County residents can cast a ballot at any Vote Center. Location information here.


Another DACA recipient takes American lives

July 25, 2020

The death of George Floyd, a black man with a lengthy, violent criminal history and numerous incarcerations, has vaulted him into martyrdom. He died while being restrained by a white police officer, now jailed and facing Second Degree murder charges. Three other officers, one a rookie, are also incarcerated, awaiting trial for not interfering. Floyd has become the unlikely impetus for calls to defund police departments, national riots, wanton destruction, and the movement to discard America’s historic monuments.

That the police were initially called based on Floyd attempting to pass a counterfeit $20 bill in a store has faded into oblivion, as has the fact that his autopsy report revealed numerous illicit drugs in his system.

But count on the fact that few Americans have heard the names of Jerry Wayne Harbour, Michael White, and Joseph Paglia, three members of a police motorcycle group who were killed by Ivan Robles Navejas, 28, an illegal alien drunk driver who received Obama’s illegitimate DACA amnesty. And unlike with Floyd, there will be no outcry for policy changes to rectify the scourge of repeat offender criminal aliens who are allowed to remain in the country and further victimize Americans. KTSA San Antonio news radio covered the deaths and provides photos of the three victims and the drunk driving killer.

 SRAZ addressed the impact of just two cases in which Arizonans, Mesa Police Sgt. Brandon Mendoza and young convenience store clerk Grant Ronnebeck were killed by illegal aliens. Their parents praised President Trump’s efforts to address this criminality through the creation of Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) Office to support the victims and families affected by illegal alien crime.

Navejas, a Mexican national, was shielded from deportation by former Pres. Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which remains in effect due to a disappointing June 18, 2020 U.S. Supreme Court decision.

In November 2014, Obama announced changes to DACA expanding it to include illegals who entered the country prior to 2010, eliminating the quasi requirement that applicants be younger than 31 years old, and lengthening the renewable deferral period.

Obama’s efforts, intended to expand the Democrat party, were aided by his Arizona pal, and traveling buddy, Sen. Jeff Flake, whose 18% home state approval ratings were so low he opted to retire after a single term.

In 2018, SRAZ wrote, Jeff’s Flaky dreamers are a farce: most are adults, not “kids,” which reveals the truth about DACA recipients. There is no accurate means of verifying if they were brought into the U.S. as infants by their illegally invading parents, or arrived last year after hoisting themselves over the border.


“Karen” becomes a race-based insult

July 18, 2020

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot oversees a city with higher death tolls than many global war zones President Trump recently addressed the city’s violence in this letter to Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker and Mayor Lightfoot, asking the two Democrats to put partisan politics aside and accept his offer of assistance to secure the city.

Of course, the president was rebuffed.

During a press briefing, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said, “He’s offered your city help. It’s a dereliction of duty not to take it.”

Lightfoot wasn’t about to take such abuse and hurled what has newly become a derogatory description of a white woman, tweeting, “Hey, Karen. Watch your mouth!”

Since Lightfoot’s wife Amy Eshleman is white, it would be interesting to know if she’s called “Karen” when they argue. The pair has an adopted black daughter named Vivian, who has no such concerns. Her mothers also keep her out of Chicago’s failing public schools. “What’s fine for thee is not for me,” might be a slogan Lightfoot can embrace next election cycle.


Calif. teachers union’s outrageous politically-based demands

July 17, 2020

There was a time when Arizonans were confident all rain “came from California.” More sophisticated today, we’re no longer focused on the weather, from which there is no summer relief. However, we do know with certainty that political nuttiness has its inception just across the state line.

A case in point, the Los Angeles teacher’s union has declared it won’t reopen schools unless police are defunded, Medicare for all is implemented, along with the imposition of a “wealth tax,”— as if wealthiest Americans didn’t already pay the highest taxes — the closures of charter schools, and a federal bailout. United Teachers of Los Angeles’ scheme is laid out in a crazed, leftist, race-based report bearing the catchy title, “The Same Storm, but Different Boats: The Safe and Equitable Conditions for Starting LAUSD in 2020-21.” To get the gist of the slant of the publication, this description of students explains why schools can‘t reopen: [They are] “more likely to live in high-density housing (making social distancing difficult), because of decades of residential housing segregation caused by institutional racism.”

When the Los Angeles City Council recently voted to cut the LAPD budget by $150 million, it declared the money will be earmarked for “disadvantaged communities,” actually most in need of police protection. Meanwhile, those “underpaid” California teachers, who work part-time jobs and will be paid not to teach have found enough ready cash to generously donate $246,528,592 to Democrats over the past two decades.  According to the Center for Responsive Politics:

“Teachers unions have steadily amped up their political involvement: From 2004 to 2016, their donations grew from $4.3 million to more than $32 million — an all-time high. Even more than most labor unions, they have little use for Republicans, giving Democrats at least 94 percent of the funds they contributed to candidates and parties.

Two organizations account for practically all of the contributions made by teachers unions: The National Education Association (about $20 million in 2016) and the American Federation of Teachers (almost $12 million). Both groups — which compete for members, but also collaborate with each other through the NEA-AFT Partnership — are consistently among the organizations that contribute the most money to candidates and political groups.“

Major school districts such as Los Angeles and San Diego will stay closed this fall, despite pressure from the White House to reopen. Randi Weingarten, the leftist president of the American Federation of Teachers, one of the country’s largest teachers unions, gives the federal government an “F” grade.  Weingarten, married to another woman, draws an annual salary of more than $540,000. The unionist introduced Hillary Clinton at the Democrat National Convention, while blasting Donald Trump.

As if on cue, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) exhibiting delusions of grandeur, recently announced plans to introduce an amendment to a bill that would withhold federal assistance payments to states that do not require face masks to be worn.

This comes as survival of businesses grow increasingly uncertain amid another shutdown. When the economy shrinks, the tax base will, as well.

It’s clear from reading the report that the people who spend more time with America’s children than their parents often do, are political radicals who have propagandized so many youngsters with tenets of Marxism, that it’s no wonder within a few years they hold cities hostage, loot, terrorize and destroy what previous generations proudly built and those who followed honored and gratefully held in esteem.
