AZ Republic, where leftism rules, still hounds Arpaio

October 17, 2018

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio still generates headlines in the duplicitous Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper. The popular sheriff, elected to an unprecedented six 4-year terms, was relentlessly hounded out of office by the newspaper’s editorial page editor, Phil Boas, Arpaio’s own son-in-law in 2016.

But replacing Republican Arpaio with a Democrat accused wife beater wasn’t enough. Today’s headline links Arpaio to Dennis Hof, a Nevada entrepreneur and brothel owner who died in his sleep hours after a political rally/birthday party at which Joe Arpaio, Tucker Carlson, and Grover Norquist spoke. Hof, 72, was a Trump-supporting Republican candidate for the Nevada Assembly. Prostitution is legal and regulated in larger counties by the state of Nevada.

An online search reveals the newspaper went uncharacteristically mute when Democrat former First Lady Rosalynn Carter was pictured greeting John Wayne Gacy and Jim Jones, both mass murderers.

Gacy, later executed, was charged with the torture and sex-related murders of at least 33 boys and young men whose bodies he confessed to burying under his own house. Mrs. Carter shook his hand.

Jones was the monstrous cult leader and Marxist, purporting to be a minister, who led 912 followers to take their own lives and those of their children by drinking a cyanide-laced grape Kool Aid-type concoction at his Jonestown compound in Guyana. This mass slaughter took place after the killing of U.S. Congressman Leo Ryan and his team who came to investigate at the request of relatives of some members of the commune.

The only reason to subscribe to the overpriced daily disseminator of garbage which habitually endorses Democrats is if you enjoy having your intelligence insulted and blood pressure spiked.

Latest lunacy from the left invades news, ASU

October 7, 2018

We read the AZ Republic so you don’t have to

The Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper appears to be on a quest to outdo its own excesses.

First, a bit of levity which is deserving of being called, “a good for a laugh” headline:

“As Sen. Jeff Flake stokes White House speculation, his political brand seems in tatters.”

No kidding? Flake is not running for reelection to his single term senate post due to 18% approval ratings, no doubt exacerbated by his relentless brutalization of President Donald Trump. As Trump’s numbers continue to soar, Flake’s have tanked. If he can’t generate support in his home state, it’s unlikely he’d fare better elsewhere, though he’s irrationally been to the primary battleground state of New Hampshire twice recently.

On Saturday, as the Supreme Court confirmation vote was taken, one of the radical hooligans in the senate gallery yelled out, calling Jeff Flake, “a coward.” These are the same people he has actively courted, and are now turning on him. No wonder his eyebrows are down-turned and his perpetual smirk has been replaced by the pained look of a man with inflamed hemorrhoids.

Moving right along, we’ll give you a front page headline under a photo of a person resembling the newspaper’s editorial page editor, Phil Boas, though sporting long hair. You’ll remember him as the man responsible for overseeing the in-tandem opinion pieces — some masquerading as reports — persistently hammering and working double-time to remove Sheriff Joe Arpaio from the elected office he held for an unprecedented six four-year terms. Arpaio is Boas’ father-in-law.

But, no. The photo is not Boas, but a person named Natalie Diaz. Below the photo is this headline: “ASU poet gets MacArthur ‘genius’ grant, worth $625 K.”

Turns out the “genius” is “one of only 25 people nationwide to receive such a bounty. And what sets this poet who works in the ASU English Department apart from the academic herd?  According to the report, “Her poetry draws on her experiences as a Mojave American and Latina to challenge the mythological and cultural touchstones underlying American Society.” There’s even more that makes Diaz so deserving of the prize money.

In addition to Latina, Diaz self identifies as ‘queer and indigenous” expressing hope “to offer visibility to queer people and show how they have been hurt and erased. Also how they deserve and express love.”

If you thought the English Department was a safe space for your college students, think again. There is probably an assignment on “Toxic Masculinity,“ which is actually being considered as a course for integration into Minnesota kindergartens.

 The Chicago-based John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation is a “philanthropic” organization with assets of approximately $7 billion that supports the promotion of leftist causes such as “over incarceration, global warming and nuclear risk,” as it “continues its historic commitments to the role of journalism in a responsible and responsive democracy.”

Get it?


Grant Woods threatens reprising McCain

September 25, 2018

The Arizona Republic newspaper has gotten lazy. Subscriptions waned as former readers wearied of having their intelligence insulted with a constant barrage of regurgitated, spleen venting leftism. The newspaper’s Trump haters, unified in their vitriol, band together in a daily choreographed frenzy — armed with honed word swords with which to annihilate their conservative enemies. Between the editorial page doyens, the columnists and political cartoonist, the obliteration of foes takes primacy.

John McCain remains a deity to which all employees knees bend in supplication. Though his three-day funeral came to an end, his presence is still felt. The latest manifestation is a 13 x 6 inch, halftone screen, shadowy head and shoulder shot of the now deceased senator, grinning. And what is worthy of the toothy smile, eerie, though it is?

Nothing less than the first of two pages, written by Grant Woods, his first chief of staff when McCain was a one-termer in the U.S. House nearly four decades ago. Woods later was elected Arizona Attorney General.

Still bombastic, the Medicare eligible Woods has nary a gray hair on his Oxford Brown shoe polish toned head. The self-aggrandizing Woods writes a “My Turn” column titled, “Why McCain’s death might convince me to run for Senate (just not as a Republican).”

“If I believe our country is in perilous times, what is my responsibility as a citizen to do something about it? I have to do more, that much is clear,” he writes. “But does that mean I have to run for office again, this time for my mentor John McCain’s seat in the U.S. Senate? Maybe it does. I have the option of running as an Independent.  It suit me and would be a lot of fun.”

His sole practice law firm website is also replete with braggadocio. Former public defender Woods pompously refers to himself as, “one of Arizona’s most acclaimed and successful lawyers,” calling his own career “legendary.” Normally such glowing accolades are bestowed by fans, but Grant Woods has no fan that matches the guy he sees in the mirror each morning. 

For GOP squish Woods to threaten to run as anything but a Republican is no threat at all.  For years he has garnered publicity using this same maneuver. He’s publicly endorsed numerous Democrats from Hillary Clinton to liberal Dems Terry Goddard and Felecia Rotellini for AZ Attorney General in two separate races. Leftist Harry Mitchell was Grant Wood’s pick for Congress. His name was prominently displayed on the list of Republicans for Janet Napolitano, (click to enlarge) the worst Arizona governor in memory, who later abandoned her post to join the Obama administration.

Invariably on the wrong side of issues, Woods prosecuted U.S. Border patrol agent Nicholas Corbett, charging him with second-degree murder, manslaughter and negligent homicide in the fatal shooting of an illegal alien during a border altercation. Corbett, who maintained he acted in self-defense, was tried twice, with both cases resulting in hung juries as Woods did not prove the case.

The thought of this Democrat-endorsing, McCain clone trying to resurrect the now buried Republicrat is chilling — even in Arizona where the September temperatures are still in the triple digits.


AZ Republic policy: There’s no news like old news

September 15, 2018

Children separated from illegal alien parents is routinely recrafted as part of propaganda war against President Trump

We’re all familiar with the adages, “There’s no business like show business,” extolling life onstage, or “There’s no place like home.” All Dorothy had to do was click the heels of her ruby slippers, and she and her dog, Toto, would be instantly transported out of Oz and back to Auntie Em’s farm in Kansas.

The “Oz” for the declining number of Arizonans who still read the local newspaper is not “somewhere over the rainbow,” but in a mind boggling pro-illegal alien echo chamber.

With John McCain finally put to rest after a record-breaking, multi-location, week-long funeral, and the General Election weeks away, the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) newspaper has reverted to its go-to front page story.  Facts are of little consequence, as the headline blasts, “More than 60 separated kids still in Arizona.” 

Buried in the article on page 6 is a quote from an ACLU lawyer, acknowledging that many illegal alien parents voluntarily opt to abandon their children in the U.S. to pursue asylum while they return home.  He calls it a “brutal decision.” It’s also an extremely crafty one, since the children will eventually be able to bring their parents in under a bizarre construct known as family reunification which is part of a scheme called,chain migration.”

The Heritage Foundation presents the facts in an enlightening report, “Who’s Responsible for Separating Alien Kids From Their Parents? Many People, but Not Trump.” If you read nothing else today, read this. It will take only 6 minutes and is guaranteed to make you more knowledgeable.

Bear in mind that American children are routinely separated from their citizen mothers or fathers every day as lawbreaking parents charged with crimes are jailed. If found guilty, they are imprisoned for extended periods. Their children are not incarcerated with them. This is a consequence of committing crime.


AZ Republic’s Robb grovels, earns his pay on AZ Senate race

September 12, 2018

The choice, according to sellout Robert Robb, is “capable right or capable left”

There was a time when the local newspaper actually had an op-ed page with conservative views regularly expressed. Columnists Thomas Sowell and Michelle Malkin were among those who provided a solid voice of balance. Publisher Eugene Pulliam was a staunch conservative, as was longtime top editor, Frederic S. “Fritz” Marquardt.

Those days are long gone. The editorial pages are presided over by Phil Boas, who savaged his own father-in-law, former Sheriff Joe Arpaio out of office in favor of a wife-beating Democrat.

The best Arizona Republic readers have as a voice of opposition is Libertarian-minded Robert Robb. But he still has to earn his keep and rarely veers too far off the liberal path.

Today he proves his allegiance to those who sign his paycheck with an opinion piece titled, “Ariz. Has 2 good choices for senate.”

Robb, states the two, Republican Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema are models of Jon Kyl and Dennis DeConcini, respectively.

Then tossing integrity aside, after acknowledging her “radical past”  in favor of toadyism, Robb actually describes Sinema using these words, “Her brand of cheerful politics would wear well in a chamber in which personal relationships matter more.”

Is this the example of cheerful politics he has in mind?

Sinema’s foul-mouthed deprecation of stay-at-home Moms was included in our July 2018 post, “Kyrsten Sinema’s devious metamorphosis — Political chameleon works to dupe voters.” With a crucial U.S. Senate election around the corner — early ballots will be mailed Oct. 10 and polls will be open Election Day Nov. 6, 2018 —we urge our readers to read the entire, fact filled exposé.

An atheist with Communist leanings who refused to take her oath of office on the Bible and an admitted bi-sexual, who was an early supporter of same-sex marriage, she mockingly blasted women who devote themselves to their families rather than working outside the home as “leeches.” Her foul-mouthed comment was:

“These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f**k are we really talking about here?” Following the spirit of unity Sinema now claims to embrace, she derided conservatives as “Neanderthals.”

 Robb’s concept of “cheerfulness” doesn’t qualify as mainstream.

Don’r be fooled. On her worst day, Martha McSally would be preferable to Kyrsten Sinema on her best. The Primary is over and our choice is clear.


AZ Republic views ethnicity as top attribute in Gov’s race

September 10, 2018

Although Arizona’s newspaper of record is still in the thrall of mourning over the passing of John McCain, it has found room on Page One to gear up for Nov. General Election. In the Sunday edition, the Periódico de la República de Arizona  (Arizona Republic) briefly cast aside its grief and all but gave an early endorsement to David Garcia, the Democrat gubernatorial candidate, in an zealous paean that filled a third of the jump page.

There was the cursory, ‘He’s good on education,’ spew that pales in comparison to Gov. Doug Ducey falling on his sword and ponying up the 20% pay hike demanded by the teachers who walked off their jobs for a week. They deserved to be fired rather than rewarded for abandoning over 800,000 students statewide in violation of their contractual agreements.

The teacher’s unions — whose members work 8½ months a year — should consider Ducey their hero.  Instead, they’re enraged that their latest extortionist ploy — #InvestInEd, an irreversible constitutional amendment slated to be on the ballot as Prop. 207, a Marxist redistribution of wealth ‘tax the rich’ scheme — was deep-sixed by the Arizona Supreme Court. They hold Ducey, not the justices responsible. That these educrats who lack a basic grasp of the three distinct branches of government, are teaching Arizona’s students, should concern us all.

What sets Garcia apart isn’t his choice in food or drink, described in minute detail, including his refusal to drink milk at someone else’s home, as his campaign bus hit the political trail. His major accomplishment, over which he has no control, is his ethnicity.  Being a Hispanic running for governor appears to be his major attribute, according to reporter Richard Ruelas. The headline topping his report reads: “Aiming for historic win, Garcia gets on the bus— Democrat would be 2nd Latino governor of Arizona.”

We’ve already had four women governors so gender politics has lost its panache.  In over his head, after serving less than half of his four year term, Arizona Gov. Raul Castro eagerly accepted the offer of President Jimmy Carter to take the post of ambassador to Argentina and was gone in a flash.

Garcia lost his 2014 bid for Superintendent of Public Instruction and now is now focusing his gubernatorial campaign on recklessly abolishing ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) leaving our southern border even more vulnerable to criminals. Garcia is also opposed to constructing the much needed wall along our southern border.

His extreme views mirror those of the left-wing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic, but not the voters of the state of Arizona who overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump in 2016. Divisive identity politics is all David Garcia has.  Running the state requires far more than he offers.

The differences couldn’t be more clear. The wise votes will go to Gov. Ducey. Even Mario Diaz agrees.


Supercharged Cindy Hensley McCain emerges

September 9, 2018

Attending a week of funerals for her husband — conducted in various locations nationwide — must have been exhausting for Cindy McCain. But the 1968 AZ Junior Rodeo Queen proved she had the grit to handle the stress.

Without missing a beat, and inserting her maiden name in her byline, Cindy Hensley McCain was able to get down to business and have a self-serving op-ed published in USA Today. The newspaper is the Gannett parent company of the Hillary-endorsing and John McCain-worshiping Arizona Republic, which this morning devoted half of its Valley and State section to a tribute titled, “John’s story is the American story.”  It was accompanied by two oversize candles, dripping wax — one larger than the other. There is an obvious significance to this choice, which we choose not to tackle.

To what end Cindy Hensley McCain’s USA Today was written is anyone’s guess though it sounds suspiciously like campaign bait being dropped in the briny, as the beer heiress hustles for money for her “new home” the McCain Institute. At the very least, she wants to be a player on the Arizona political scene.

The Arizona Daily Independent Sept. 1, Sunday Comic satirically points out that the difficult tasks associated with funeral planning were done for her, in advance of her husband‘s death. Be sure to read the comment section following the illustration. They are the same tone as those written here.

The slavish adoration is a fabricated media construct, and does not represent Arizonans who pay attention or others who knew him well. Elected Republican State Committeemen at their 2014 mandatory statutory meeting voted overwhelming for a resolution to censure John McCain, citing his repeated collusion with congressional Democrats. This contempt was replicated in the majority of Arizona’s fifteen counties at GOP county statutory meetings by elected precinct committeemen. In Maricopa County, the vote in favor of censure was 1,150 to 351.
