Phil Boas asks God for deliverance from Pres. Trump

June 15, 2018

With FBI Director Christopher Wray’s new release of facts from the 500+ page Department of Justice Inspector General’s report regarding the “rooting out of bias” perpetrated against presidential candidate Donald Trump* from within the highest levels of government, examine the same type of anti-Trump bias displayed right here in Arizona. In this instance, we’re not referring to the contrived attempt at influence peddling by former president Bill Clinton as he boarded the plane of then-U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport as it appeared increasingly likely his wife would face criminal charges — which ultimately never materialized. They claimed to have discussed their grandchildren.

No. These hits don’t originate with D.C. power brokers or with a partisan former FBI Director shamefully exemplified by James Comey, who gave the deceitful Mrs. Clinton a pass for her countless illicit transgressions, but on the pages of the local newspaper where relentless attacks against candidate, and now President Donald Trump, remains the subject of multi-pronged, repetitive hits.

Who can forget Phil Boas? He’s the editorial page editor of the anorexic and failing Arizona Republic, better known for his loathsome dedication to bringing down 6-term Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio — Boas’ own father-in-law.

All Republicans — except pretenders John McCain and Jeff Flake — are worthy of this partisan goon’s savagery. He despises President Donald Trump with such visceral animosity that his editorial regarding the historic Singapore meeting Trump negotiated with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a leading despot on the world’s stage, is titled, “God help us if Trump solved N. Korea.”

It so rankles Boas that the businessman President who wrote, “The Art of the Deal,” just might have averted a global nuclear catastrophe, it leaves him editorially sputtering, “God help us,” numerous times in the editorial. Boas has lived to middle age without comprehending that those words are uttered by desperate people seeking divine intervention in hopeless situations. 

Those of us who comprehend the significance of such a meeting that has not previously occurred in any administration in nearly 75 years — since the Korean peninsula was divided following World War II — are awed by this extraordinary summit, that showcased cordiality from the leaders of both countries.

Rather than rejoicing or giving credit where it’s due, Phil Boas begrudgingly concedes, “It’s a long shot, but there is reason to believe Trump could actually pull this off. Kim could have caught the vision,“ he contemptuously writes, “and if he has, he could make Trump look like a genius.”

Followed by another plea, “God help us.”

The Hillary Clinton-endorsing liberals at the newspaper would rather have nukes aimed at the United States, Japan and South Korea than concede that President Trump should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.  Barack Obama received the honor simply for breathing. He was nominated within 12 days of taking the oath of office. Read the fascinating time line by attorney Tommy De Seno.

And, as far as the local newspaper? If you’re still one of the remaining subscribers, ditch it. Why support a publication that holds you and our president in contempt?

* As usual, the U.K.”s Daily Mail provides excellent in-depth coverage.

Irrelevant AZ senators rate headline for G-7 Trump bashing

June 9, 2018

 Nonentities John McCain and Jeff Flake serve as useful idiots to leftist Arizona Republic

This reckless coverage attempting to undermine the President of the United States as he meets with G-7 leaders on the World Stage, is — unfortunately for all Americans who reap the rotten harvest  — typical of the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper.

Insults are one thing.  Acting to destabilize President Donald Trump is unconscionable. Trump has shown himself to be an effective leader, even engaging North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to the negotiation table, an unheard of event in over 70 years. The country was partitioned in 1945.

Arizona has zero representation in the U.S. Senate. John McCain, reported to be planning his own funeral, hasn’t been seen in D.C. in nearly a year except for this diabolically rehearsed drama. Jeff Flake suspended his reelection campaign due to his embarrassing low 18 approval ratings. Yet these two irrelevants rate the headline?

Something is very wrong with this picture.


AZ Republic’s leftist skew conceals truth, distorts facts

June 7, 2018

Reports lack facts, sugar-coat hate monger

SRAZ has ventured into the mind-numbing arena of the AZ Republic’s irrational reports recently. The conjecture, extreme leftwing skew and wishing-it-were-so cover-ups are appalling.

May 27, we brought our readers, Major reason to steer clear of deceptive AZ Republic. It was followed on June 2, by AZ Republic: Foolish reports take center stage again. With these “reports” coming at breakneck speed, it’s difficult to keep up with them. They are not only foolish, they are deceitful.

Today we present a couple of headlined articles worth delving into:

 Headline Number One: “Lawmakers to Pentagon: Reverse transgender ban.”

Bear in mind there are 100 voting senators and 435 representatives. Both chambers hold Republican majorities. There were “over 100 members” who signed the letter written by U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy,III (D-MA) to Defense Secretary James Mattis demanding a reversal of the Pentagon’s ban on transgender people from military service. The policy originally authorizing transgender troops was instituted by Barack Obama.

Countless searches failed to locate a copy of the letter or any of the signers, though it reportedly concluded with this zinger: “If President Trump and his administration are committed to all of our service members, they will immediately reverse this bigoted ban.”

Headline Number Two: “Louis Farrakhan Jr, dies at Phoenix home.”

“His father, Louis Farrakhan,” according to the newspaper, “is known for preaching a conservative message of self-reliance and family values coupled with black empowerment, but has drawn criticism for fostering anti-Semitic views in the past.”

The past?

Louis Farrakhan, the head of the black separatist Nation of Islam, never preached conservative messages. His anti-Semitism has remained virulent, hateful and incites violence. In March 2018 during a Saviours’ Day event to commemorate the life of Nation of Islam founder Master Fard Muhammad, Louis Farrakhan had some choice descriptions of Jewish people. The “powerful Jews,” he told the audience inside Chicago’s Wintrust Arena, “are my enemy.” The Jews are also “responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out turning men into women and women into men.” He issued a threat to the Jewish community, saying , “Farrakhan has pulled the cover off the eyes of the Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”

In 1986, the Nation of Islam, moved its headquarters to Phoenix, where Farrakhan directed the group.

Farrakhan contemptibly claims Jews committed the 9/11 terrorist attacks in order to start a war between the West and the Muslim world, and to enable the “Jewish owner” of the World Trade Center to collect billions of dollars in insurance money.

National Review recently wrote about Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic tweets. He’s known for praising Hitler and derided Judaism as a “gutter religion.”

Even the radically leftist Southern Poverty Law Center, also known to foment hatred, refers to the Nation of Islam as a hate group. They can recognize one of their own, but the Arizona Republic wears blinders.


Ken Bennett can and will be AZ’s next governor

June 5, 2018

Frenzied Phil Boas expends massive effort repeatedly declaring Bennett can’t win

Given the chaotic state of the Arizona Republic newspaper, replete with admissions of peddling fake news and Cronkite Journalism students under-filling jobs as desk-less reporters, it would not be a leap to think Monday’s editorial was a misprint, repeated, as is frequently the case, from a previous edition, 

But panicky editorial page editor Phil Boas, is reprising his previous editorials with updated skews. On May 31, we posted,Bennett’s in the race: AZ Gov. Doug McDucey should be nervous.It provides an in-depth review of the political landscape that encouraged Bennett to challenge Ducey. Readers would be excused for thinking Boas’ latest version was a regurgitated report. It’s more of the same though palpably trembling with fury. Bennett had the temerity to address the widely held belief that Ducey is poised to appoint Cindy McCain to the senate when her terminally ill husband meets his maker. According to Boas such speculation is off limits, despite the fact that John McCain is planning his own funeral.

Headlined, “Bennett should exit the governor’s race,” this latest effort begins with the slightest twist, “Ken Bennett needs to get out of the governor’s race.” Boas asserts that Bennett can’t harm Gov. Doug Ducey, but “needs to save himself and what’s left of brand Bennett.”

Don’t mistake this for thoughtfulness. It’s ice-in-the-veins fear. Boas purposely misstates Bennett’s “late and haphazard entry” into the governor’s race.

When he announced he made the ballot, Bennett thanked Arizona Republicans statewide for their “incredible effort” in securing not only the required number of signatures to make him a viable gubernatorial candidate, but giving him a healthy cushion of 26% to overt challenges. That’s indicative of strong grassroots support, hardly “haphazard.”

Boas then pulls out the long gun, blasting what only he and his ilk would consider a slur: “Bennett is behaving like an insurgent, a Trump-destroyer of the Republican establishment, and that’s pure fraud.” In the next line, schizophrenic Phil foolishly accuses Bennett of “being as establishment as it gets in Arizona.” 

Poor, delusional Phil Boas. In his agitated state, he’s descended into withdrawal from reality, stating, “The only thing that explains Bennett’s strange run for governor is something that explains a lot of politicians. They’re needy. They reach a point when they’ve been too long from the spotlight and they crave its white glare.”

“This campaign feels like that. Like vanity,” Boas opines, “It also feels like Ken Bennett’s last.” 

Does this quote from Bennett sound like vanity or commitment?

“I am running because the truth matters and we are not being told the truth in critical areas. My primary opponent, Governor Ducey, has forgotten that this is a Republican state and is caving to outside interest groups on gun control, outrageous budget spending, NAFTA, DACA, and Obamacare.”

Arizonans are weary of being unrepresented. Republicans are tired of campaign promises that evaporate the day after the ballots are counted. Conservatives want honesty. We’ve gotten none of those qualities from deceptive U.S. Senators McCain and Flake. Gov. Doug Ducey is a longtime McCain cohort, whose first job when he arrived in Arizona was working for Cindy Hensley McCain at Hensley & Co., her Anheuser-Busch beer empire. The two couples remain close.

Ken Bennett is running as a Clean Elections candidate. Give him a $5 donation to enable him to received matching funds. Unlike Doug McDucey, he isn’t beholden to lobbyists and special interests.

It’s time for a change. Former Arizona Senate President and Secretary of State Ken Bennett, an Arizona native, has the experience to ably lead the state. We’re entering a McCain-free zone. The air is crisp and clean.

No wonder Phil Boas is choking.


AZ Republic admits peddling fake news

June 3, 2018

Agenda-driven bogus tales take on a life of their own

National Review headlines its recent blockbuster report, “Arizona Republic Corrects Misleading ‘Lost Kids’ Article.”

“Misleading” is too lenient a term to accurately describe the blatant falsehoods shamefully passing as fact at Arizona’s newspaper of record.

The exposé on the failing newspaper, which derives its life-sustaining oxygen from promoting illegals and their causes, is another nail in the publication’s ‘fast and loose with the truth’ coffin.

The newspaper’s lies were bellowed with the fervor of a carnival midway barker. They were the basis of a vicious twitter campaign waged against Ivanka Trump for posting a picture of her holding her young son.

A baseless news report, the effort of two reporters — one a self identified diversity reporter and the other an “aspiring broadcast journalist” ASU student — was titled, “#WhereAreTheChildren social-media campaign calls on feds to find missing migrant children.”

The report states, “A campaign calling on the U.S. to find nearly 1,500 migrant children taken into custody and then misplaced by the government gained traction on social media Saturday and Sunday. The #WhereAreTheChildren hashtag came in response to news that a federal agency misplaced 1,475 children, many of whom traveled alone to the U.S. to escape abuse and poverty,” they write. This single line blows a mile-wide hole in the story that children have been ripped from their parents arms at the border.

The fact that this was baseless propaganda is irrelevant. Leftist propagandists have a job to do and lies to spew, which remains the sole consideration.

It stands to reason that eager liberal mouthpiece, columnist E.J. Montini wrote, “The feds lost – yes, lost – 1,475 migrant children.” Montini’s deceit was printed as fact in the AZ Republic and USA Today, another Gannett publication, where it later reran with this retraction:

Corrections & Clarifications: An earlier version of this column mischaracterized the legal status of 1,475 undocumented migrant children who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border without their parents. Those children were placed in the custody of sponsors screened by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. They are no longer in federal custody.

It’s bad enough when the newspaper uses an array of equivocators as a device to slickly influence readers. It’s quite another matter when boldface lies are given a glossy patina and peddled as truth.

National Review deserves commendation for exposing the deceit and the Arizona Republic’s correction.  Unfortunately, many will miss this rare mea culpa and buy into the lost children fiction.

No one has yet discovered a way to unring a bell.


AZ Republic: Foolish reports take center stage again

June 2, 2018

Transgender “migrants,” carping school principals rate front page coverage

Last weekend we ran a post titled,Major reason to steer clear of deceptive AZ Republic.” It was an instant hit, garnering an exceptionally high number of hits, proving common sense still resonates.

Today we bring our readers yet another couple of reasons to ditch the newspaper. These latest Page One offerings shared the same issue on Wednesday, May 30.

First we bring you “Looking for a safe place to call home.” You might be inclined to think this concerns abandoned pets up for adoption, but you’d be wrong. The article details the “new struggles” of “transgender migrants.” Their advocates — yes, they have advocates — say “U.S. officials haven’t done enough to protect transgender women from assaults and abuse.” The article continues to two full inside jump pages. The caption accompanying the above-the-fold photo identifies two of these “transgender migrants” by their femme name, continuing, “they often face difficulties in remote detention centers when applying for asylum in the United States.” They complain they are unable to get decent jobs and the only work open to them is in the “sexual servitude industry” working as prostitutes. One reported that “clients became enraged” when discovering the prostitutes ware born male. ‘Ya think?

Article two, also given prominent above-the-fold exposure is titled,” Principal: ‘D’ grade is public shaming.”  Numerous valley principals appearing at the State Board of Education meeting addressed their concerns that the low school grading labels hinder their success.

The principals have it exactly backwards. Their schools’ lack of success in teaching hinders the students, whose abysmal testing scores are reflected in the grades given to the schools by the state.

One by one, they requested their specific schools grades be bumped up a notch or the system that alerts parents to the success or failure rate of individual schools be discarded altogether. These are representatives of the same public schools that abandoned their students — over 180,000 of them statewide — for a week, while the REDsforEd teachers went out on strike demanding a 20 percent salary hike.

The Arizona State Board of Education’s website states:

Arizona Revised Statutes § 15-241 requires the Arizona Department of Education, subject to final adoption by the State Board of Education, to develop an annual achievement profile for every public school in the state based on an A through F scale. The development of the Accountability System was informed by public input through 17 public hearings across the state and a survey that yielded almost 1700 responses. Additionally, a broad-based committee consisting of school administrators, teachers, parents and data experts provided the Board with additional input.

The system measures year to year student academic growth, proficiency on English language arts, math and science, the proficiency and academic growth of English language learners, indicators that an elementary student is ready for success in high school and that high school students are ready to succeed in a career or higher education and high school graduation rates.

This accountability is what the left-wing union educratsare fighting.

Bennett’s in the race: AZ Gov. Doug McDucey should be nervous

May 31, 2018

Ken Bennett has collected and filed the necessary nomination petition signatures to put him on the ballot, accomplishing that massive task in record time. This so galls the Arizona Republic’s editorial pages editor, Phil Boas, that he’s written a screed that opens with “Ken Bennett is a stand-up guy, but…” Boas calls Bennett’s efforts “bizarre,” declares he’s running “on a lark,” while asserting he “won’t win.” In his rage, Boas misspelled Bennett, omitting a final “t.”

Boas is a sterling character, best known for relentlessly pursuing his own father-in-law, Joe Arpaio, out of the top job in the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. Arpaio was elected sheriff for an unprecedented six four-year terms.

Even Libertarian-minded columnist Robert Robb called Bennett’s hurdle “insurmountable.” Take that assessment with a with a healthy dose of skepticism. The liberal newspaper finds Gov. Doug Ducey an acceptable Republican because he has no core.

With years of public service behind him, Ken Bennett actually has a lot going for him. He is also the recipient of public fury with Ducey, who acquiesced to the outrageous demands of striking teachers who abandoned Arizona’s 840,000  public school kids for a week while following a 24-year-old Socialist hip-hop music teacher on their escapade. After Ducey caved to their 20 percent salary hike, they are now demanding more, filing a ballot Initiative to permanently provide them additional $millions.

Bennett states his case unequivocally:

“I am running because the truth matters and we are not being told the truth in critical areas.  My primary opponent, Governor Ducey, has forgotten that this is a Republican state and is caving to outside interest groups on gun control, outrageous budget spending, NAFTA, DACA, and Obamacare.” 

Doug Ducey has been aligned with the McCain syndicate since he came to Arizona from Ohio to attend ASU. As we wrote on Tuesday, Ducey’s first job was working for Cindy Hensley McCain, at Hensley & Co., her Anheuser-Busch beer empire. Although Ducey demures, it is widely rumored he is considering appointing her to fill her seriously ill husband’s senate seat when a vacancy occurs. Ducey and his wife recently visited the McCains at their Cornville ranch. 

Bennett is Arizona born and was raised in Prescott, where he was elected to the city council and served as mayor. Later, he was elected to the Arizona Senate where he was selected senate president by his colleagues. In 2008, Ken Bennett was elected secretary of state, a job that is next in the line of succession to the governor. A successful businessman with a degree in accounting, Bennett possesses a skill set based in finance, and would not have interjected himself into the teacher’s union foray as Ducey did, rather than putting the teacher salary trickery back in the hands of the elected school boards who rightly have the ultimate oversight.

In announcing he made the ballot, Bennett thanked Arizona Republicans statewide for their “incredible effort” in securing not only the required number of signatures to make him a viable gubernatorial candidate but giving him a healthy cushion of 26% to overt challenges.

He won’t have the establishment apparatus and money machine behind him, so like Dr. Kelli Ward, who is running for U.S. Senate, he will need our help. Both Ward and Bennett support President Donald Trump. The hard fact is, campaigns are expensive. Bennett is using the Clean Elections funding system.

Conservative Arizonans have been frustrated with the slippery Republicrats who have never represented us. We have a rare opportunity to right the ship of our state.  Let’s not muff it.
