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.


Biased coverage of AZ Governor’s race insults voters

May 24, 2021

The local newspaper is not above promoting myth over facts when it is on a mission to advance democrats for public office. That deception took center stage in Sunday’s editorial by leftist columnist and resident race-baiter, Elvia Diaz.  Supporting ethnicity over qualifications, the commentary is headlined, “A Latino and Asian American are front runners for governor.”

The editorial is an insult not only to the candidates, Republican State Treasurer Kimberly Yee, an Arizona native and to naturalized Mexican-born democrat Marco Antonio Lopez, Jr., but also to the remaining readers of the publication that makes no effort to disguise its allegiance to the democrat party. Lopez’ bio is light on specific goals for the state of Arizona, but touts his allegiance to Barack Obama, working for Janet Napolitano and as a page for former U.S. Rep. Ed Pastor (D- CD7). His political experience includes being elected mayor of his hometown of Nogales at age 22, and working for the failed Al Gore presidential campaign, as he seeks the top job in Arizona. Lopez’ association with Mexican Billionaire Carlos Slim should be watched. The Federal Election Commission details the prohibited influence of foreign money in American campaigns. Now 43, Marco Lopez’ life is hardly an open book. The only listing under “personal life” on his Wikipedia page is that he a licensed private pilot.

State Treasurer Kimberly Yee is defined by her conservative fiscal and social values and political experience, first as a state legislator and currently Arizona Treasurer, where as Arizona’s chief banking and investment officer, she is responsible for overseeing the cash management of Arizona’s over $40 billion state budget and payments to agencies, local governments and schools while managing approximately $20 billion in assets.

She has won every election in which she has run, and received the second most votes of any Arizona statewide candidate in 2018. Read her impressive bio. Clicking on this link also enables supporters to sign her nominating petition to ensure her placement on the ballot and provides the ability to donate to her campaign.

Implying that this outstandingly qualified gubernatorial candidate is solely defined by her ethnicity marginalizes not only Kimberly Yee, but all of her supporters. Americans are each more than our ethnicity and gene pool. Arizonans deserve an experienced leader in the Governor’s Office. That person is Kimberly Yee.

In 2016, Kimberly Yee was a featured speaker at the Republican National Convention.


Whiteness morphs into insidious crime, as students taught self hatred

May 7, 2021

Critical Race Theory is a term we hear bandied about with increasing frequency, invading not only our culture, but our schools. It is anything but benign. Its main objective is to alienate Americans from one another, cast blame, and instill guilt, while elevating some by blaming others through insidious indoctrination. Taking pride in our country is regarded as the purview of racism. Voices raised to defund the police have become de rigueur.

At its core is the word “theory,” which is not a fact based premise, but rather a conjecture based on hypotheticals.  AZ Senate Bill 1532 has been introduced to address these overreaches in classrooms.

The bill’s wording mirrors that of Idaho’s recently passed landmark legislation HB 377 (Dignity and Non-discrimination in Public Education) that was signed into law by Republican Gov. Brad Little. The Daily Wire headlines its report, “First In Nation: Idaho’s Republican Gov. Signs Bill Banning Critical Race Theory.” Arizona Gov. Ducey should do no less.

Victor Davis Hanson, a leading conservative historian has written, “Is Racism Moral Now?” posted on American Greatness. The left is attempting to silence us into submission. This is an important commentary that is definitely worth your time. As SRAZ has often reminded our readers, Knowledge is power. These are unprecedented times that require vigilance and solid responses to the deceptive madness that is endorsing repression as equality. Silence is acquiescence.


Anti-GOP desperation reaches a “slashing” zenith

May 6, 2021

Movie reviewer, with no movies to review, recommends cutting conservatism out of our lives

There’s no question Arizona’s radically left local newspaper is fighting for its life. To counter the fact that subscriptions are in the toilet after losing its building and repeatedly being on the auction block before finally being sold, it showcases its commitment to ethnic diversity hires, while giving a hostile thumbs down in opposition to diverse thought. Massive staff cutbacks are evident to even a casual reader as editor-deprived ASU Cronkite Journalism students take up the slack prior to being ready for prime time.  A columnist who died over three years ago reappears through his recycled columns, with the added bonus that he doesn’t require a salary. 

The latest attempt to save a buck is moving the movie critic into the political arena. Bill Goodykoontz has held on longer than cartoonist Steve Benson, who was unceremoniously kicked to the curb after decades when the failing newspaper could no longer afford the Pulitzer Prize winner.

It’s not a stretch to imagine Goodykoontz dutifully double masked as Biden and Fauci recommend. Though with no movies to review during the pandemic, he shows off his ambidextrous skills as he swings far left to grovel at the feet of job security, morphing from a reviewer to a venom spewing critic of conservatives. 

Not only does he attempt to decimate top-rated Fox News host Tucker Carlson, but like a foot stomping petulant child, he demands viewers, “Cut him out of your media diet entirely, even if you’re a fan.”  He also advocates cutting the My Pillow guy Mike Lindell out, “Like a vegan would red meat.” Why?  He’s a Trump supporter, which warrants not only silencing, but loss of your livelihood. “Vote with your remote,” hotshot Goodykoontz, the impostor who calls other people liars, advises.

You get where this is going.  See no conservatives, hear no conservatives and you’ll eventually lose your ability to comprehend or articulate conservative thought. The hope is you’ll be ignorant enough to actually buy the overpriced, leftist newspaper that pays Goodykoontz’ salary.


Dem AZ US Sens. Sinema, Kelly hammered by leftist columnist

April 27, 2021

The dem duo is not leftwing enough to suit radical local newspaper columnist

Judging from the number of songs dedicated to the topic, there are few things as wrenching as a romance gone wrong. Still the ache can turn to rage, as we witness with local newspaper columnist, Elvia Diaz.

A committed leftist, Diaz is solidly on board with elected democrats, both local and national. Republicans elicit her bile spews. Conservatives are doused with her contempt. Now, however, in a column headlined, “Sinema, Kelly just opportunistic,” she disgorges her fury at democrats who dare to veer, ever so slightly, from marching in her jack-booted lockstep.

Diaz saves her most vicious revulsion for democrats who stray from the hard-left line she has drawn in the sand that makes up her brain’s cerebrum, which normally controls senses, reasoning and judgment.

She first rips into Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, who she refers to as a “self-declared border czar” for issuing this Declaration of Emergency at Arizona’s southern border and deploying 250 National Guard troops to deal with the illegal alien invasion. Dias refers to them as “asylum seekers” and knocks President Trump’s effective border policies, without having to taint her fingers by typing out the name Donald Trump, instead referring to him multiple times as “the former president.”

Kneeling at the Biden altar, Diaz inconceivably saves her strongest ire for democrats and former objects of her affection, Arizona U.S. Senators  Krysten Sinema and Mark Kelly (he faces reelection in 2022), who she now accuses of “scoring political points by rushing to back” Ducey’s decision. “But they didn’t stop there,” an irate Diaz rants. She accuses them of having the audacity to send this letter to the White House, using the forbidden word “crisis” and asking for financial reimbursement from the flawed president she voted for.

SRAZ wrote, AZ Sens. Sinema, Kelly suddenly want Biden to fund border troops,” last week.

Citing the recent Quinnipiac poll we previously posted (3rd paragraph from the bottom) Diaz begrudgingly admits, “Border security is Biden’s weak spot and that can hurt Democrats with some voters.” Notice the equivocal “some” inserted as a calmer to fellow leftists. The poll shows a overwhelming 55% disapprove of Biden’s neglect of the U.S./Mexican border, compared to 29% who approve.

VP Kamala Harris, Biden’s appointed border czar has been too busy redecorating the vice presidential mansion and shopping for her ubiquitous black suits to travel to the border, although she does find the topic worthy of one of her now famous cackles.
