Exceptional exposé of agenda-driven public/government schools

October 24, 2021

Columbia University Law Professor Philip Hamburger has written a stellar assessment of America’s public school system, titled “Is the Public School System Constitutional?” It was posted as a commentary in the Wall Street Journal.

His summery includes these words: “Education consists mostly in speech, and parents have a right under the First Amendment to exercise authority over what their children hear.”

The WSJ requires a subscription, so the link may not work. Tap “Read Article” in the WSJ’s pop-up box. It’s important reading. If the first paragraph link doesn’t work, SRAZ located the commentary on the Fry Electronics site, which advertises itself as “an automatic aggregator of the all world’s media.” The paragraphs are oddly spaced, but the content remains. One way or another, this is a must read.


Speaking AZRepublicese: The left’s political word scam

October 7, 2021

Progressive is the word in which regressive leftists have taken refuge since it sounds forward thinking. Republicans, whose politically savvy radar allows us to recognize a con when we see it, find the word games puzzling, since we have no such reluctance in embracing patriotism and traditional values. Many of us revel in identifying ourselves as conservatives.

Arizona’s failing newspaper, which bizarrely and for the first time ever, didn’t print a Labor Day edition ostensibly to give its staff a holiday respite, employs Elvia Diaz, a radical editorial columnist. Her latest effort is mysteriously titled, “Rift between mayor, progressives.” 

What that means is up for debate, since Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego is a far left Democrat, and the council is dominated by like-thinkers. Although they farcically run without a party designation, the deceit is obvious. Since 1982 in an effort pushed by democrats, they run from specific districts rather than representing the city as a whole and working together of the betterment of Phoenix. There are currently three Republicans and five democrats including the mayor who has a vote. Diaz’ commentary is peppered with quotes from Gallego’s spokeswoman Jeanine L’Ecuyer.  If that name sounds vaguely familiar, she is recycled from being Janet Napolitano’s mouthpiece. Napolitano, Arizona’s worst governor, resigned to join Obama’s administration as Director of Homeland INsecurity.

Diaz’ opening sentence contains the heft of the column: “Don’t tell me Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego is turning into another Kyrsten Sinema —  stubbornly defying her own political base.” Diaz whines about the council members not all falling in line on city proposed wage hikes on government funded construction projects.

Diaz is so enraged that she has even come out of the slippery political language closet, actually using the verboten word “liberal” multiple times.

This post,Phoenix City Council elections expose ethnic divide,”  provides background on how the city council elections transmogrified into ethnic bastions, which serve no one well.


Columnist Robert Robb wants AZ voters robbed of their rights

September 12, 2021

There was a time when columnist Robert Robb provided what appeared to be a rational voice in the Trump-despising local newspaper. That time is long gone. Whether he was concealing his actual vantage point for expediency or veered further left to stay salaried as the failing newspaper slipped further into murky oblivion, the facts are that Robb is a now willing sycophant, who eagerly supported the farce known as the “Top 2 Primary…after he vigorously opposed it in 2012, calling it “…another disappointing attempt to change election outcomes by changing the rules”

A member of the newspaper’s editorial board, by 2016, Robb, now bearing the title of editorial columnist, was toeing the line of those who sign his paycheck, as SRAZ pointed out in, “Robert Robb: Forgetful, schizophrenic or seeking job security?

We provide this background since today’s column, “These state offices used as stepping stones should be appointed,” advocates for Arizona’s  Attorney General, Secretary of State and State Treasurer all to be appointed. We are not linking to the tripe.

The facts speak for themselves. The Hilary-endorsing newspaper has failed at brainwashing its few remaining readers, so its new strategy is to deprive them of their constitutional right to vote.

GOP hating newspaper promotes former dem Kari Lake as GOP governor. New video explains why

August 3, 2021

Just days ago far left Laurie Roberts, the local newspaper’s former sob story reporter turned political henchwoman, was heaping praise on unlikely gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, a longtime Channel 10 teleprompter newsreader. Lake, put on leave for dropping the F-bomb when she thought the mic was off, finally left and is now deceitfully trying to pass herself off as the conservative in the race, though she was a registered democrat who donated to Barack Obama and John Kerry.

In what turned out to be an honest description of herself, Kari Lake is quoted as saying, “Not everyone is dedicated to telling the truth.”

Radical Roberts is so enamored with the political novice who aspires to run the state of Arizona, that she wrote a sycophantic column purposely excluding the actual experienced Republican candidate, State Treasurer Kimberly Yee, who is too accomplished to merit Robert’s mention. Yee, having been elected to both the Arizona House and Senate knows her way around state government and is doing an  exemplary job managing taxpayer’s money, keeping the state solidly in the black even during the devastating pandemic, which has set the nation on its ear.

Roberts’ column is nothing more than a ruse, intended to promote the least qualified GOP candidate as the Primary Election looms prior to ultimately pushing the democrat among the list of has-beens and never-was aspirants for the state’s top job.

The desperately failing newspaper, which farcically swore off making insultingly biased endorsements, no longer prints pages of its anointed selectees. It doesn’t have to. The promotion of dems and denigration of conservatives is ongoing in editorials, skewed news reports and via the Republican-hating columnists.

The candidate with an actual track record is former state Representative and Senator and current AZ State Treasurer Kimberly Yee.  Read her remarkable accomplishments on behalf of the people of Arizona with a proven track record of service. She has the  enviable record of winning every election in which she has run. Kimberly Yee was tapped to speak at the 2016 Republican National Convention (link). Her brief convention speech endorsing Donald Trump for president is well worth watching.

Now watch faux “conservative” Kari Lake — who was actually a registered democrat — endorsing leftist Merrick Garland, Barack Obama’s pick to replace conservative Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court. Radical Garland is now the U.S. Attorney General in the Biden administration:

Americans beware: Control is the new normal

July 29, 2021

This afternoon, shaky Joe Biden, masked and wearing sunglasses, made a spoon-fed announcement that all federal workers must be vaccinated against COVID-19 or be subject to strict Coronavirus testing requirements. The Department of Veterans Affairs announced Monday all of its health-care workers must be vaccinated.

Read Katie Pavlich’s excellent new report, “BREAKING: Biden Issues New Vaccine Mandates.”

Merrick Garland who heads the Department of Justice as U.S. Attorney General says government agencies and companies CAN force employees to get COVID vaccines as California and NYC lead the way with mandates. Garland rivals Ramsey Clark for the title of most radical leftist to hold that office in modern history.

Remember when Barack Obama nominated this tyrannical activist to the U.S. Supreme Court in the waning days of his administration?  Republican senators back-burnered the nomination, while Arizona single-term Senator Jeff Flake, Obama’s basketball and traveling buddy, was shepherding Garland around the senate desperately trying to gin up votes for him.

Earlier this week, the San Francisco Bar Alliance urged its nearly 500 member bars ask customers to prove they’ve been vaccinated or provide results of a negative COVID-19 test from the past three days. They were not so authoritarian when the deadly scourge of AIDs was infecting large segments of the San Francisco homosexual community, since that would have been politically incorrect.


Stephen Richer revels in blue spotlight, duped Republicans

July 12, 2021

GOP political newcomer clearly displays his leftist stripes

When the GOP-hating, Hillary-endorsing local newspaper is enraptured with an elected Republican, it’s a clear sign something is amiss. That is exactly what’s happening with Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer. The Recorder’s Office is regarded as a down ballot post, which few people can accurately identify either by the duties or the office holder.

In November 2020, Richer, the previously unknown Republican lawyer ousted the single term democrat and the victory tasted sweet, masking the toxicity aimed at conservatives that we were soon to see. Richer has appeared in a full-color, above-the-fold photo in a newspaper report standing beside democrat Sheriff Paul Penzone and using the prominently displayed word “unhinged” to describe President Donald Trump. Penzone, it should be remembered defeated six-term Sheriff Joe Arpaio with at least $2 million added to his campaign coffers by none other than Socialist billionaire George Soros who has resolutely donated to overhaul the criminal justice system in his leftist image.

This revealing account was published in Law Enforcement Today.

Displaying its newfound GOP defector poster boy, Sunday’s edition of the seriously declining local newspaper devotes two pages to a “Your Turn” column by Stephen Richer, titled, “Playing by an awfully different set of rules.”  This bold type face, foolish sentiment is directly below the headline:

Maricopa County election administrators conducted bipartisan hand-count audit of 2020 votes. Cyber Ninjas — Republicans in sheep’s clothing — recruited almost exclusively from the GOP.

Do those words sound like what Republican voters would expect to hear from a newly elected Republican? The newspaper, which always posts a photo of the columnist alongside the article, generously provides Richer a “haircut” by lopping off the oddly balding top of his head, making him look more palatable as he gouges Republican Senate President Karen Fann and the auditing firm which has worked around the clock with NINE online cameras making the process available to any interested party. Richer bizarrely concludes they play by a “different set of rules.”

His own election was hardly a runaway. Richer defeated democrat Adrian Fontes by a razor-thin 50.1% to 49.8%. In the primary he defeated perpetually losing candidate Clair Van Steenwyk (known as “Van the Radio Man”) by a 15% margin, which should have been far greater.

If Richer runs for any political office in the future, it should be as the democrat he has shown himself to be. It will be a rare display of honesty.


Ballot audits reveal Georgia election irregularities, illegal votes

July 10, 2021

Voter fraud: The democrats newest growth industry

On Friday, SRAZ wrote “Arizona’s election audit sullied by county officials,” and linked to several states where the 2020 election results were in question and officials authorized ballot audits, not unlike Arizona is currently conducting.  Georgia was among them.

On June 17, Human Events headlined, “Georgia Audit Documents Reveal Significant Election Irregularities.” Reports such as this abound. One doesn’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to question the veracity of election results in state after state. Our trust has been eroded by blatant evidence that all is not as it appeared when the election returns were counted. This article is a must read.

The Federalist also focuses on Georgia in this well-documented article published Friday, July 9, 2021, titled,New Evidence Indicates Enough Illegal Votes In Georgia To Tip 2020 Results.” Lawyer and senior contributor Margot Cleveland exposes the troubling information, writing, “In Georgia, there was both an audit and a statewide recount confirming Biden’s victory, but ignored in the process was evidence that nearly 35,000 Georgians had potentially voted illegally.”

Arizona and Georgia are just two states among 50. When the integrity of the voting process is called into question in one area, it casts doubt on the integrity in other jurisdictions. Just days ago The Federalist wrote about the New York City Mayoral election headlining the report, “It’s Suddenly OK To Question Election Integrity After Fake Votes Totally Botched NYC’s Democratic Mayoral Primary.”

The information contained in these independent reports is crucial. Knowledge is power.


“Systemic racism” fraud exposed by Catholic League President

July 8, 2021

The insidious Marxist farce known as ‘critical race theory’ has invaded America. It is served to us and our children by radically leftist educrats who have coined the phrase, “systemic racism,” which is calculated to divide us as oppressors and victims based solely on skin color. Integral to the scheme is reparations, monetary payments to atone for slavery which ended in 1865 with the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, in the aftermath of the four-year long Civil War. It was fought during the presidency of Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican U.S. President who was an ardent abolitionist.

The surge of immigrants through Ellis Island from its opening in 1892 to its closing in 1954 were often oppressed people themselves and neither they nor their descendants owned slaves, which is of no consequence to those with an agenda.

The local newspaper, which touts its commitment to diversity over competence, ran an irrational editorial on July 7, by a black University of Texas professor, under the headline, “Teaching critical race theory is patriotic, not divisive.”

Topping the most rational commentaries on the topic is this one written by Catholic League president Bill Donohue, titled, “MEET THE NEW RACISTS.” Regardless of how busy you are today, take time to read his wisdom. It’s a decision you won’t regret.


Sen. Manchin ditches dems on H.R. 1: Partisan legislation “will destroy” democracy

June 7, 2021

In this Op-Ed featured in the Sunday edition of the Charleston Gazette-Mail, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) left no uncertainty as he announced he will vote against the democrats’ 886-paqe, fraudulently named For the People Act.” He also declared he will oppose either weakening or eliminating the filibuster, believing partisan voting legislation “will destroy the already weakening binds of our democracy.” Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, a democrat, has schizophrenically been on both sides of the far-left power grabbing legislation. Mark Kelly (D-AZ), up for reelection, has kept his bald head down on this massive overreach, hoping no one will notice.

Sen. Manchin, who has remained popular with his constituents, previously served as West Virginia’s governor (2005 – 2010) and secretary of state (2001 – 2005).

The Heritage Foundation explains how H.R. 1 would federalize and micromanage the election process, imposing unnecessary, unwise, and unconstitutional mandates on the states. This is crucial information. Not a single Republican supports this power grabbing bill.

Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Illinois) described the bill as “for the politicians, not for the people,” illuminating its built-in public funding of campaigns mechanism, among other egregious overreaches. He stated, “This bill is an infringement of states’ rights to administer elections. Unfortunately, H.R. 1 was written without any input from the election officials and administrators who actually have experience running elections and without consultation with Republicans.”


Corporate America joins in training to marginalize white males

May 27, 2021

Lockheed Martin embraces diversity, melanin, and mea culpa philosophy

After watching a Fox News interview with Christopher Rufo explaining how Lockheed Martin Corporation, the nation’s largest defense contractor, sent white male executives on a three-day diversity-training program aimed at deconstructing their “white male culture” and encouraging them to atone for their “white male privilege,” it was not difficult to locate his timely report, “The Woke-Industrial Complex,” published in City Journal. This is not local or national news, but an insight into the cultural revisionism that is artificially dividing Americans from one another based on ethnicity and finding entrenching roots in corporations and institutions of higher learning. Sports are exempt since the majority of football and basketball star athletes are black. (70% in the NFL and 74.2% in the NBA according to Statista).

It was that same publication in 2002 where Victor Davis Hanson first predicted the coming of Mexifornia, which he referred to as being worse than he originally foresaw when he wrote, “Mexifornia, Five Years Later.” Mexifornia later expanded into a book.

Allowing our sovereign national border to become an easily breached sieve, high achieving students taking a backseat to others seeking university scholarships based solely on ethnicity, American history being rewritten and replaced with the fallacy of critical race theory where there are only oppressors and victims, along with corporations holding mea culpa training sessions, illustrate the foolishness calling itself “wokeness.”

The radically leftist Arizona Republic newspaper is dedicated to its commitment to diversity, not of thought or qualifications, but of ethnicity and skin pigment, matters over which the new hires have absolutely no control.
