Sundowner’s Syndrome consumes AZ newspaper

April 17, 2021

Failing Arizona Republic contrives to divert attention from Biden’s missteps

Occurring at end of life, Sundowner’s Syndrome is a disease often accompanying dementia where patients reject nourishment and hasten their own demise. 

The seriously declining, Trump-hating, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic, consumed by blatant loathing of Republicans, exhibits signs of the debilitating disease.  A recent weekend edition was a tribute to vacuous nothingness, though featuring a multi-page, pre-written report, stretching over several days, focusing on a fugitive killer who brutally murdered his wife and children and then blew up their Scottsdale home in 2001. This tragic but ancient news took precedent over covering the radical Joe Biden administration’s previously unimaginable political overreaches, gaffes and missteps on the world stage.

The far leftist newspaper which routinely eviscerates Arizona’s Republican members of congress, and other GOP elected officials, as it slobbers praise on the democrats, still runs regurgitated columns by Clay Thompson who died in 2018, no longer requiring a salary or benefits.

A front page report covers the Tucson police chief being selected by the Biden administration to head U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The two-page report uses the second sentence to describe Chris Magnus as a “critic of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.” That single fact makes Magnus worthy of praise. On ICE’s webpage, it used the correct term “illegal aliens,” which will no doubt disappear when Magnus is sworn-in.

Magnus’ nomination is placed beside an article declaring the black community’s distrust of COVID vaccine is based on Tuskegee memories dating back to 1932. Inexplicably, the word black always rates being capitalized, while white remains lowercase.

 Ethnicity is the driving force behind every report and hiring decision at the “inclusive” Arizona Republic newspaper, surpassing accuracy and content. The dying and homeless daily is committed to its own demise.


Far left AZ Republic manufactures news to fit its agenda

April 7, 2021

Today’s edition of the Republican loathing local newspaper headlines a Page One story with an intended to be incendiary account of campaign donations to two GOP members of the Arizona Congressional delegation by U.S. Rep. Matt Goetz, in what is an absurd attempt to smear them with guilt by association. The newspaper accuses them of “remaining silent” regarding the non-issue.

Florida Congressman Matt Goetz is a Republican, which is the first strike against him as coverage in the hard left media goes. This survey of reporters, reported in Politico, was taken prior to the sweeping election of President Donald Trump, so the 7% who identified as Republicans has no doubt dropped since then.

Goetz has been accused of crimes involving underage girls, which he vociferously denies. The double standard is clear as it relates to democrats such as New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, who survived despite a DOJ investigation alleging he used underage prostitutes on numerous trips to the Dominican Republic which were “specific and corroborated.” He remains in the U.S. Senate.

A hard-core leftist originally appointed to the senate seat, Menendez also survived an ethics complaint and then voted to permit legal status to illegal aliens convicted of domestic violence, crimes against children and crimes relating to the illegal purchase or sale of firearms.

As president, democrat Bill Clinton engaged in a sexual relationship with a 22-year-old White House intern, survived a cursory impeachment for suborning perjury and remained in office. The newspaper lavished him with praise and endorsed his wife, Hillary, for president in 2016.

Recently freshman California Congressman Eric Swalwell was exposed for engaging in a romantic relationship with a Chinese spy. But the democrat cemented his valuable asset status as he joined the unified democrats in passing the disastrous overreach H.R. 1, the nearly 800-page bill deceptively titled, For the People Act,  that received not a single Republican vote according to the Clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Freshman Arizona U.S. Sen. Mark Kelly, a democrat who has $multi-million business connections in China, and received campaign funding from Socialist billionaire George Soros, which was never a problem for the radically left Arizona Republic, which worked double time to see this charlatan elected.


Word challenged AZ Republic reporter describes border

April 5, 2021

Re-recycles words describing crisis

A report meriting front page placement and a jump page of the seriously ailing purveyor of disinformation, the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic), is headlined, “Conditions worsen at Tijuana migrant camp.” Written by Rafael Carranza, it is a testament to overworking a limited vocabulary. He has moved on from the Spanish language La Voz and states he “bridges language barriers, speaking for those without a voice.” He also writes for those he seeks to indoctrinate through repetition.

Including the captions under the three accompanying photos, the word “migrant” or its plural was used nearly three dozen times. “Asylum or asylum-seekers” also got a work-out, appearing two dozen times. The accurate, legal term, “illegal alien,” was not used once in the entire article, which was sculpted to engender compassion for the massive influx of illegal invaders from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras flooding across America’s sovereign border. Among them are previously deported criminals and drug cartel operatives, also well paid to transport unaccompanied minors, who often suffer abuse or are recklessly abandoned, (video) as were two Ecuadorian sisters, ages 3 and 5 who were dropped over a towering border fence by smugglers and left in a remote section of New Mexico’s desert.

Just days ago, we wrote, “Tiny Sonoita, AZ rocked by crime committed by illegals.”

Feeble Joe Biden’s handlers view this incursion of unvaccinated and uneducated as future democrat voters, willfully ignoring the fact that not only will still unemployed Americans be on the hook for their numerous benefits, including food, housing, healthcare and educating their children, but will be competing with them for jobs in reopening hotels, bars and restaurants as well as in the construction trades, where they undercut wages.

The danger is real. Border Patrol agents have also apprehended invaders from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia, Pakistan, and Yemen.

Mexico disallows the U.S. to send citizens from other countries back through Mexico. Under U.S. law, they’re entitled to a formal deportation hearing. Due to their numbers, the immigration service lacks ample facilities to hold them, so the vast majority, many COVID positive, are now being released from custody without notices to appear in court and fanning out across the United States.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who partnered with President Trump on the border, blamed Joe Biden for the surge that has erupted into an uncontrolled border crisis, stating the “expectations” he set left illegal border crossers with the perception that they would be let in the U.S.  Lopez Obrador has called Biden the “Migrant President.”

The Biden administration’s undoing of former President Donald Trump’s border policies and halting wall construction has prompted this mass invasion of illegal aliens at our border, including a reported 18,000 unescorted children.

Jen Psaki, Biden’s mouthpiece, steadfastly refuses to call the calamity at the border “a crisis,” and as yet, neither Biden nor VP Kamala Harris, who he put in charge of border policy, have scheduled a visit. Harris mockingly laughed out loud when asked about her plans to visit.

And word challenged reporter Rafael Carranza? He can’t even find the words to report on this outrage accurately.


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.”


AZ newspaper maligns GOP elected officials, mischaracterizes legislation

March 1, 2021

SRAZ frequently reminds our readers that the Arizona Republic has deservedly hit hard times. As it became ever more emaciated even prior to becoming homeless, it swapped out longtime more costly employees for ASU journalism students with limited skills though packed with politically correct terminology.  A recent report used the touchy feely term “reached out” three times in a single article, with the word “contacted’ relegated to the trash heap. Steering clear of sex-based verbiage, headlines declare “a person was shot,” or “pregnant people” rather than women. Gannett’s stock which peaked at $91.00 on April 6, 2004, has plummeted to record lows, falling to $4.96 at the closing bell on February 26, 2021, providing proof positive that insulting their few remaining readers is not a good business model.

Subscribers began peeling away in record numbers after the ill-advised, presidential endorsement of deceitful Hillary …“despite her flaws.” The editorial board is so bonded to the left, it was unable to accurately gauge the solid support for Donald Trump, who sailed to victory in 2016.

Still it felt emboldened by the election of the two hard-left U.S. Senators Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema for the first time since 1953 when Barry Goldwater defeated Ernest McFarland and Carl Hayden, initially elected in 1926, finally retired from the senate in 1969 at age 91. Hayden was first elected Maricopa County treasurer and sheriff years before Arizona gained statehood in 1912, which underscores democrats’ bonding to political entrenchment.

Newly elected Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly, an open-border proponent with close and lucrative ties to China, is the founder of Giffords PAC, a Second Amendment restrictionist group targeting national Republican candidates, calling for stricter gun controls and vowing to gut what he refers to as “the gun lobby.” His fellow former astronauts blistered Kelly. Following Sinema’s deceptive path, slickster Kelly made no mention of his party affiliation in any of his campaign ads.

The two Republican members of congress the radical newspaper is currently targeting are Paul Gosar (CD4) and Andy Biggs (CD5) who serve alongside fellow conservatives David Schweikert, (CD 6) and Debbie Lesko (CD8). There was no ire expressed when a democrat candidate who lost her medical license due to deadly medical malpractice, carpetbagged across the Valley from her Glendale residence to run in a Scottsdale/Fountain Hills district against Schweikert, losing yet again, as she deceptively wore medical scrubs in her ads with a stethoscope around her neck.

In Sunday’s edition, Biggs rated multi-pages of abuse. Gosar, Schweilert and Lesko have all received similar contrivances, while their deceptive democrat counterparts, get the kid glove treatment. This morning editorialist Elvia Diaz haughtily advises Republican Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel to drop all charges against 15 violent BLM thugs, “to prove she’s not like…her Republican predecessors.”

Columnist E.J. Montini, a shill for the democrat party, feigns opportunities to deceitfully accuse Republicans of “voter suppression.”

The radically leftist Arizona newspaper never devoted a single word to Joe Biden being caught in cash for influence scandal which was initially exposed by the New York Post and further substantiated when son Hunter’s incriminating laptop revealed even more corrupt connections.

Help put the deceitful newspaper out of its misery. If you still subscribe to the Trump-hating, conservative-loathing Arizona Republic, it’s past time to cancel. Call 1-800-332-6733.


AZ Republic’s columnist compares Republicans to Commie dictator

February 22, 2021

SRAZ has frequently linked to a Phoenix Business Journal report verifying that Arizona’s newspaper of record is on its last legs. It’s not simply floundering. It’s failing so badly that its subscription rate is the lowest of all 200 newspapers in Gannett’s nationwide stable. That’s not a business model to emulate. In fact, it’s a recipe for disaster. Yet no one is doing more to send reasonable readers fleeing the inflamed rhetoric of the Hillary-endorsing newspaper than its Johnny-One-Note employee, E.J. Montini.

The emaciated columnist who has had no other employer since his early 20’s has reached retirement age, and should pack up his loathing of conservatism and ride off into the sunset. But for the loner with no outlet for his venom spew, this is not an option. Montini, a perpetually irate man possessing a murky relationship with honesty, has nowhere to go.

The only alternative for the newspaper’s survival is to cease the expensive to produce and deliver hard copy editions and switch to all digital. But with news available in everyone’s pocket and free of charge in a wide array of formats, even that attempt at continued existence is iffy at best.  What’s left of the dwindling readership is the senior demographic which leans hard right. They led the Trump supporters and Rush Limbaugh loyalists. And unlike the undereducated millennium voters who supported socialist Bernie Sanders, they are knowledgeable about the destructive evils of socialism and communism, having lost relatives or fought in wars themselves, to eradicate those freedom suffocating evils. But leftist Montini, who never served his country, has no problem comparing Arizona Republican state legislators to the “disinformation campaign” of  Russia’s brutal Communist dictator Joseph Stalin, who was responsible for the suffering and deaths of millions. Unfortunately, the aged columnist has never exhibited the capacity to feel shame for his deceit.

Even the leftist newspaper has a yellow banner above Montini’s irrational  column (to which we did not link) stating, “This piece expresses the views of its author(s) separate from the views of this publication.”

Obviously, that’s difficult to believe. The newspaper’s entire perspective is radically left, and it still keeps this brazen liar on the payroll.


Is there a worthy elected Republican in AZ?…

January 31, 2021

…Not according to the dying Arizona Republic

In its effort to disparage, discredit and displace elected Republicans at every level, the gravely ailing local newspaper, a failing leftist bastion, is exhibiting renewed vigor since the Harris/Biden team was installed less than two weeks ago and Soros supported Mark Kelly, a Second Amendment restrictionist won a U.S. Senate seat. Now he joins Kyrsten Sinema in voting to impeach former President Trump a second time, an obvious act of retribution and toadying to the DC carnivores, since Trump is no longer an office holder.

Nothing and no one is off the sacrificial chopping block. The newspaper has in-turn and in-tandem, irresponsibly hammered steadfast AZ GOP members of Congress Paul Gosar (CD-4), Andy Biggs (CD-5), David Schweikert (CD-6) and Debbie Lesko (CD-8), united in their support of the Republican president. Recently re-elected GOP chairman Dr. Kelli Ward, a family practice physician and former state senator, has repeatedly been on the receiving of the newspaper’s bile spews.

The newspaper, known to many as the Repukelic, never lets facts get in the way of deceitful sensationalizing. Skewed news is routine. Now that the staff is down to a skeletal crew who voted to unionize, columnists, though on imposed money saving shortened schedules have been turned into quasi-reporters, with a hate-laden agenda, seemingly paid by the number of venomous words.

The appropriately named Karina Bland who writes about menopause and inanities, is frequently replaced by Clay Thompson “classics.’ Thompson, who died in 2018, doesn’t have to be paid.

Laurie Roberts, who previously specialized in child abuse exposes, now spews hate with the same vengeance as wild dem extremist, EJ Montini. His column today is titled, “80-year-old explains why state GOP is going to hell.” Columnist Robert Robb, who once presented himself as the sole voice of reason, gave up that charade for job security.

It gets worse.  AZ Rep. Raul Grijalva, has the gall to demand the committee assignments of AZ Rep. Paul Gosar, D.D.S. be striped until Gosar’s role in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol has been “investigated” — although not a single charge has been brought against any members of Congress.

Grijalva is the Alinsky socialist militant, open borders leftist with a history of radicalism, who used nearly $50,000 of taxpayer money to pay off a staffer, buying her silence about him repeatedly showing up at the office drunk.

In 2010 SRAZ posted,The real Raul Grijalva: At war with Arizona citizens,” detailing his plan to wage an economic boycott against Arizona for passing a law to secure our border.

Arizona’s citizens deserves better than Grijalva. He needs to be primaried.


AZ GOP senators proceed with 2020 election audit

January 30, 2021

Arizonans looking for fact-based information regarding contentious issues in our state know the radically leftist, Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic is not the place to find it. The newspaper dramatically lost subscribers in the wake of the blowback from the 2016 endorsement. They have not returned.

A reliable source is The Gateway Pundit. This Jan. 29, 2021 post,HUGE NEWS! Arizona State Senate Hires Its Own Independent, Qualified, Forensic, Auditing Firm to Analyze 2020 Results,” exemplifies in-depth information that is either never seen or discredited by the far-left local newspaper that has actually threatened its few remaining Republican subscribers.

The Gateway Pundit report includes a comprehensive press release from Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann (R-LD 1) that is definitely worth your time.

Arizona Republicans don’t buckle under hard left partisan pressure. We seek the truth…a scarce commodity at the local newspaper, which has fallen on well-deserved hard times.


Unethical media’s venom spews aim to destroy Republicans

January 16, 2021

These days the average consumer of news might find it difficult to believe, but there actually exists a Society of Professional Journalists, whose tagline is “Improving and protecting journalism since 1909.” Implausibly, the group even has a Code of Ethics. Included in its Preamble is the exhortation “…that public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. Ethical journalism strives to ensure the free exchange of information that is accurate, fair and thorough. An ethical journalist acts with integrity.”

From this description, the only conclusion that can be reached is there are no journalists at the biased, slanted and viciously anti-Republican Arizona Republic newspaper that has elevated distortions and deceit.

Not only does the failing newspaper, hemorrhaging subscriptions, despise President Trump and demean his supporters, its venom is spewed at Arizona’s Republican members of congress, and other elected GOP officials…desirous of laying waste to them all.

The hatred is pervasive and knows no bounds. Editorial page editor Phil Boas was responsible for orchestrating the takedown of his own father-in-law, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the only sheriff in Arizona history to be elected to six four-year terms.

The headline of an editorial by Elvia Diaz is a case in point: “In the end, Trump must pay”

In its announced commitment to diversity quotas, the newspaper hauled out gay former Tempe Mayor Neil Giuliano who ran as a Republican, then switched to a democrat in 2008. He disingenuously editorialized, “Change needed if GOP wants our collars.” Giuliano draws a blank. The GOP doesn’t want anyone’s collar. Its commitment is to following the Constitution, freedom, capitalism, and low taxes. Abraham Lincoln was the first Republican President.

These daily left-wing rants were preceded by one blaming two Arizona Republican members of congress for the assault on the U.S. Capitol, written by former Arizona Congressman Jim Kolbe. For those who don’t recall the name, a memory refresher is in order for the man now declaring decent, faith-based professionals and family men who chose to serve their state and country are unworthy. The headline? “Biggs, Gosar must be held accountable for Capitol siege.” The media mob wants all congressional Republicans gone. U.S. Reps. David Schweikert and Debbie Lesko have also been the recipients of its wrath.

The RNC condemned the violence at the Capitol. The Republican Platform can be read here.

Kolbe left congress under a cloud. After supporting the Defense of Marriage Act, he was outed as a homosexual by enraged members of what is now referred to as LGBT advocates. In 2006, federal prosecutors in Arizona opened a preliminary investigation into a camping trip that Kolbe took in July 1996 that included two teenage male former congressional pages. In 2000, former Congressman Mark Foley was revealed to have had inappropriate contact with congressional male pages.

Jim Kolbe left his wife and the Republican Party and he is now married to Panamanian native Hector Alfonso, nearly thirty years his junior.


Chaos descends on DC as Antifa goons infiltrate Trump supporters

January 7, 2021

Shocking violence rocked the U.S. Capitol as mobs broke windows and pushed their way through Congress, disrupting the certification of Arizona’s electoral votes.  Capitol police, unprepared for the thug-caused pandemonium made 52 arrests as the district imposed a curfew.

A death occurred as the Capitol building was locked down, Vice President Mike Pence was ushered to safety, members of Congress were hurried off the floor and the debate over certifying the election was stopped. There were reports of smashed glass, gunfire and ruffians running around the Senate floor. Capitol police officers were injured.

These were the 6 GOP senators who voted to object to the Electoral College vote: Sen. Josh Hawley (MO), Sen. Ted Cruz (TX), Sen. Tommy Tuberville (AL) Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (MS), Sen. John Kennedy (LA) and Sen. Roger Marshall (KS). Ninety-three other voted to affirm.

Republicans traveled to D.C. in a show of gratitude for President Trump’s efforts on behalf of the nation we revere. When mobs infiltrated his appreciative supporters, President Trump urged his supporters to “Go home…go home in peace.”  His words were mocked by one of the Antifa mobsters invading the building who was quoted as saying, “He said go home? This is our home!”

An unidentified man said, “Riot police came in and started ushering us out with their sticks and stuff.” Asked how they got in the Capitol, he boasted, “We tore through the scaffolding, through flashbangs and tear gas, and blitzed our way in through all of the chambers.”

Rapidly losing subscribers, the radically left-wing local newspaper, headlines its coverage: PRO-TRUMP MOB INVADES CAPITOL. Every letter to the editor suspiciously denounces President Trump.

As we’ve come to expect, Cindy Hensley McCain, a former drug addict who stole prescription opiates from her own charity, supported Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. She blamed Donald Trump who easily achieved the presidency that repeatedly eluded her Republicrat husband, who was censured by Arizona elected state delegates. Still stung by his rejections, the never-accused-of-being-intelligent beer heiress’ surrogate tweeted, “It exposes for all to see the reckless selfishness of President Trump and the cynicism of elected Republicans, who defended his unconstitutional effort to cling to power. They have shamed our country, and delighted our enemies.”

For a more cogent view of the events read this Gateway Pundit account by a former FBI agent who was on the scene.
