Vile takedown of conservatives cloaked as news

May 24, 2019

 Appearance at “Patriotism over Socialism” rally becomes suspect

We’re as tired of writing about the far-left, Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic as you probably are of reading about it. But the dynamics have changed. Now it’s not only about differing opinions, but about outright lies, disseminated as truth. The rabid intolerance will only worsen as we near the 2020 elections.

The sole Republican the extremist newspaper had an affinity for was John McCain, who had to be “persuaded” to register as a Republican by members of the influential “Phoenix 40” at a hastily called meeting at the Phoenix Country Club. McCain, a Florida resident working in D.C., newly married to beer heiress Cindy Hensley, was repeatedly denigrated as a carpetbagger when he ran for the Arizona congressional seat being vacated by retiring House Minority Leader John J. Rhodes in 1982. A respected man of integrity, Rhodes initially defeated a longtime incumbent and became the first Republican elected to congress in the state’s history. A Harvard Law School graduate, he was easily re-elected in the conservative East Valley district for thirty years. McCain, a former POW, aided by his wealthy, well-connected, new father-in-law, served a couple of two-year terms before ditching the East Valley, moving to Phoenix and running for the senate. He cloaked his left-wing bent in western sounding “maverick” garb.

Yvonne Wingnut Sanchez, underling and now successor to retired hatemonger Linda Valdez, doesn’t let facts get in the way as she spews her anti-conservative venom. Her recent article titled, “How extremists are reasserting themselves in mainstream GOP politics in Arizona,“ topped with photos of AZ GOP Chairman and physician, Dr. Kelli Ward, former Senate President Russell Pierce and Congressman Andy Biggs, is a case in point.

Sanchez opened her column with these words: “Russell Pearce stepped up to a podium in Gilbert, one of the more affluent and educated communities in Arizona. He had bloodshed on his mind.” She then wrote he “had ties to extremism,” while linking him to a crazed, bigoted murderer who took his own life in a domestic violence crime that had nothing to do with Pearce. Does anyone remember her linking former First Lady Rosalyn Carter to mass murderer John Wayne Gacy?

She continues: “There was a time not so long ago when Arizona’s Republican leaders would have spurned a grassroots gathering such as this “Patriotism over Socialism” rally, put on by the Tea Party Community.” Sanchez refers to the patriotic groups who sponsored the rally as “hate groups,” using the ultimate hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center as her source. The SPLC deceptively lists faith-based organizations such as the Family Research Council as hate groups.

“At the “Patriotism over Socialism” gathering, Kelli Ward, the Arizona Republican Party chairwoman, took the stage ahead of Pearce and right-wing activist Laura Loomer, U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs, the Republican congressman who represents a deep-red East Valley district and is a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, spoke, too. “

“Their presence at this event — and at other gatherings attended by far-right Republicans — signals for some a legitimization of more extreme viewpoints into more mainstream GOP politics.”

In Sanchez’ skewed mind, preferring patriotism over socialism, signals political extremism.

Sanchez is either a practiced liar or too ignorant to know the difference between the words,purgeand “systematically worked to rebuild” as she writes, “ McCain’s fiercest efforts at the local party level came in 2014 shortly after party activists censured him in absentia for being too liberal, namely on immigration reform. McCain and his team systematically worked to rebuild the party by recruiting more moderate candidates to run for precinct committeeman.”

McCain was censured in absentia, because he never attended statutory state meetings, though the rest of the Republican delegation have always made it a point to address the elected delegates. He also lied about his extremist, open border and amnesty for illegals views when running for reelection, as seen in this campaign ad. Immediately after the votes were counted he went back to working with Democrats on what he fallaciously termed, “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” — more appropriately known as amnesty.

Referring to conservatives as “nativists,“ a term crafted by leftist open border proponents, intended to denigrate Americans who resent having our country invaded by illegal foreign hordes — Sanchez’ article contains many more vicious references to conservatives and contrived lies.

Following her litany of incoherent spew were these pathetic words, as the dying newspaper pleads for paid readers to insult: “Support local journalism. Subscribe to azcentral.com today.”

In a related issue, Breitbart News reports on how DHS management teams under former Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen — and continuing under acting director Kevin McAleenan have deliberately sidetracked, stalled, and stopped immigration and border policies sought by President Donald Trump. This is a must read exposé.

Dying AZ Republic draws life trying to slay US Rep. Paul Gosar

May 22, 2019

Draculesque newspaper sustained by drawing conservative blood 

U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-CD-4) is an unapologetic conservative. As a dentist, his specialty was teeth, but as a congressman, he’s had to learn about fangs.

The feeble, Hillary-supporting Arizona Republic, hemorrhaging subscriptions and narrowly escaping yet another hostile takeover, will fall on its sword promoting an anti-Trump, open borders, restrictions on Second Amendment rights and abortion-on-demand agenda as it insults its few remaining readers.

As it gasps its last breaths, the newspaper now has Paul Gosar in its cross-hairs. Like Bram Stoker‘s Dracula, it sustains itself by feeding on blood. Laurie Roberts, the former sob saga columnist has been shuffled into the conservative slayer position. The emaciated, radically left newspaper got a life enhancing transfusion when it oversaw the election of Kyrsten Sinema to the U.S. Senate and five of our nine congressional seats shift to the Dem camp. Republicans David Schweikert (CD-6) and Debbie Lesko (CD-8) also need our support, as the left is determined to turn the red state of Arizona a deep blue.

Conservative Review lists Paul Gosar, along with Arizona CD-5 U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs, among the Top 25 Conservatives in the nation, awarding them both a Liberty Score “A” rating.

Longtime newspaper employees have been unceremoniously dumped, including Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Steve Benson, whose parent-company Gannett could no longer afford. The daily now functions with ASU Cronkite J School students working out of their cars, sans editors.

Gannett Co. Inc.’s stock has been in a downward freefall. Yahoo! Finance exposes the excessive salaries of the newspaper’s execs in the last paragraph of the article that refers to the “melting ice cube of a business.”

In January we postedAZ Republic: homeless vagrant on borrowed time,” detailing how the 10-story building and parking garage the Republic once called home has been sold, with a lease back arrangement from the real estate company that purchased the newspaper’s properties — obviously not the model of success.

Unable to ignore the inescapable truth that it is on life support, the AZ Republic is committed to taking down conservatives. Don’t let that happen. Get involved. Become a Precinct Committeeman. The 2020 election is right around the corner.


Invasion USA: Central Americans overwhelm border

May 10, 2019

Yuma, AZ among three southern border areas most impacted by illegal invaders as Central Americans transplant themselves in USA

David Horowitz, writing for Conservative Review, provides shocking facts and figures from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regarding the mass illegal invasion of the United States by Central Americans. April was a record breaking month.

Here are the key takeaways from the April CBP border report:

In total, 109,144 individuals were apprehended at the border – 98,977 between points of entry and 10,167 at points of entry. This is the highest number in 12 years, it is very likely the highest number of unique individuals of all time, given that many in the past were the same individuals deported multiple times within the same week, while almost all of these are first-timers.

The 58,474 individuals in family units set another record, but an increasing number of people are also coming as single adults, 31,606. The overwhelming number of single adults are from Mexico, while most of the family units and unaccompanied teens are from Central America.

The increases over the previous month seemed to be from the Rio Grande Valley (RGV), El Paso, and Yuma sectors, the three busiest corridors in absolute numbers. Overall, for this fiscal year, every sector has seen a massive increase in family units.

Guatemala still leads the pack for the most migrants coming in all categories, followed by Honduras, with a sharp drop-off for Salvadorans. Overall, 301,900 Guatemalans were apprehended at and between points of entry since the beginning of fiscal year 2018. In other words, in just 19 months, 1.7 percent of Guatemala’s population came to our border, and that is on top of the 815,000 Guatemalan nationals who already lived here, most of them illegally. A recent poll showed that a third of Guatemalans would like to immigrate to the U.S. A total of 224,078 Hondurans have come since FY 2018, 2.4 percent of the population. That is on top of the 623,000 already here. This means that the size of these countries’ populations in America equal roughly 6.6 percent and 9.2 percent of their respective populations in Guatemala and Honduras. “Only” 79,000 have come from El Salvador over the past 19 months, but because they dominated the Central American migration in previous years, we already had 1.4 million Salvadorans in this country as of last year, representing roughly 22 percent of their entire homeland population!

Unlike in the past, when mainly single adults were coming over and were immediately repatriated, most of these individuals are being released. ICE has released 168,000 just since December 21, and that number doesn’t include the 33,000 released by CBP directly without ever being processed in an ICE holding facility since March 19.  The cost to taxpayers of just one year’s flow of illegal immigration, as estimated by the Center for Immigration Studies, would be roughly $150 billion.

Horowitz, a onetime leftist raised by Communist parents, eventually came to conservatism, which makes him reviled by the far left Southern Poverty Law Center and unwelcome on college campuses — in this case his own alma mater — when Republican student groups invite him. Campus Reform reports, “He was deemed too provocative to fringe elements and anarchists in the city of Berkeley.” Horowitz astutely observes,“Dissent is heresy.”

David Horowitz is an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump, which puts him even further in the radical left’s cross hairs.


Irresponsible silence on measles link to illegal invasion & Update

April 30, 2019

Blame game denies the facts as tuberculosis and hepatitis are also spiraling out of control in border states

It’s been a quarter of a century since measles was eliminated as a public health concern in the United States. It is now back — with vengeance — and the virulent outbreak has nothing to do with the so-called “anti-vaxers.”

The disease initially resurfaced in the border states of Arizona and California, quickly spreading elsewhere. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) would have us believe it was spread by unvaccinated people in Amish communities in Ohio and Missouri or in a predominantly Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn, New York — odd choices since both religious groups are self-contained.

As of this week over 700 cases have been confirmed in 22 states.

The CDC states, “Measles is still common in many parts of the world including some countries in Europe, Asia, the Pacific, and Africa.”

Noticeably missing from the list are the Central American countries of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, or our immediate “neighbor to the south,” Mexico. These are the countries that are flooding the United States with impoverished, uneducated invaders, bringing young children — frequently not their own, but used as facilitators — as they caravan by the hundreds of thousands, overwhelming border agents. The agents, with limited space to house them, are releasing them into border states, from which they fan out across the U.S.

This study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association: Pediatrics in 2014 found that 88% of measles cases in the country “were internationally imported or epidemiologically or virologically linked to importation.”

Only adherents to political correctness, who blandly refer to the invaders as “migrants,” would silence the truth and rush to blame two American religious groups that principally stay to themselves.

Ahead of her time, lawyer, author, activist and Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly (died: 2016) wrote, “Importing Third World Diseases,” in 2005.  Her ability to predict the future relating to the resurgence of previously eradicated diseases or introduction of new infectious scourges was uncanny. This is an important column that will add to your knowledge bank. Her impressive bio can be read here.

Conservative Review ran this report today detailing the thousands of illegals entering the United States with such highly contagious diseases as tuberculosis. The problem is real and it is urgent. We need the army at the southern border.

Border Patrol releasing thousands who were exposed to diseases like tuberculosis

The open-border supporting local newspaper headlines the rise in hepatitis cases. So far in 2019, there have been 212 cases in Arizona, which is higher than any yearly statewide total in more than a decade. State health officials expect that number to rise.

An outbreak of the viral liver disease began in November in the Tucson area and has spread to Maricopa County.

Never mentioning illegals in the coverage, the newspaper states,
“the cases are primarily among homeless and near-homeless individuals, as well as people who use illicit drugs.”

Pima County Health Department’s Deputy Director Paula Mandel is quoted as saying, “Hepatitis A is often known as “the poop disease” because it is transmitted through feces and can be easily spread when people do not have access to good hygiene and do not wash their hands after using the restroom. It’s a fecal-oral route,” Mandel said. “It takes such minute amounts.” Since Nov. 21, there have been 161 hepatitis A cases reported in Pima County. In comparison, Pima County had just five cases in all of 2017, It can also spread through contaminated food and water. People living on the streets and in homeless camps are particularly vulnerable.

San Diego, where illegals continue to breach the border, is also experiencing high rates of the highly contagious, potentially deadly infectious liver disease.

 

 


Who cares what Mega McCain thinks?

April 24, 2019

It’s impossible to miss the impending demise of the once well-read and dependable Arizona Republic newspaper. It hasn’t been reliable since Eugene and Nina Pulliam were the conservative publishers, in the pre-Gannett glory days. News was written by reporters, not student interns lacking editors. Journalists were regarded as trustworthy, and like Clark Kent, who spent time as a reporter at the Daily Planet, their clear eyed integrity was unquestioned.

What a novel concept. 

Today’s newspaper is emaciated and filled with leftist spew.  Seasoned reporters and editors have taken early retirement, had their contracts bought out or been axed, as was the case recently with Pulitzer-prize winning cartoonist Steve Benson, who rose to prominence when he held a conservative perspective later degrading to brazen Trump hatred.

Sappy columnists have morphed into bomb throwers for the anti-Trump and open border agenda. Ditto the former Libertarian minded columnist who has veered into Liberal-land for job security.

Tuesday’s edition was so lightweight in both heft and content, that only the word “pathetic” is appropriately descriptive. In an interesting placement choice, an impending LGBT rights case to be heard in the fall before the U.S. Supreme Court is given front page prominence, though high arsenic levels detected in various identified bottled water brands is relegated to page 9. The entire news section, national, international and local, rated 14 pages sparsely tucked in among ads. Sports took 8 pages, including obituaries — which now abut athletic scores. ‘Things to do,’ also a section, is a hodgepodge including movie listings, hiking trails, restaurant reviews, comics, puzzles and Dear Abby. Five full pages are devoted to hearing aid advertisements, since the remaining reader base consists of senior citizens.

Mega McCain has somehow become newsworthy. One headline roars, “Meghan McCain: Bernie Sanders not fit to lead.” Another, “I still can’t go back home to Arizona,” is a commentary on her inability to cope with father’s 2018 death.

She was controlled enough to ensure that she insulted purposely uninvited President Trump and his family during her anger-laced eulogies at three separate, week-long funerals.  Among the A-Listers were scandal-plagued Bill and Hillary Clinton and the part-time president and full-time vacationer and golfer, Barack Obama, who first denied and then admitted delivering $1.7 billion in cash payments to Iran in 2016. For those with short memories, Iran is the country that routinely assembles screaming mobs yelling, “Death to America!”

Coarse, tattooed and untalented, Mega McCain has briefly held a succession of television gigs only because of her recognizable last name. Her opinions influence no thinking American, making her the ideal person for the failing newspaper to cover.

Michelle Malkin provided an exemplary review in her column reprinted here in the Philadelphia Inquirer, ‘Vulgar exercises in self-indulgence’: Aretha Franklin, John McCain funerals showed how not to depart with dignity.

Malkin succinctly summed up the tastelessness using these words, “graveyard narcissism intertwined with crass partisanship.”


Skewing the news Arizona style

April 20, 2019

No wonder the Arizona Republic is dying

With its last gasps, the dying, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper continues to spew venom at Republicans. On Jan. 1, 2019, the newspaper was described as ahomeless vagrant on borrowed time,” after having been forced, by declining readership and following massive layoffs, to sell the building and parking structure it has occupied for decades.

Limited vocabulary when describing Republicans is de rigueur. It spikes into incendiary high gear when conservatives are the topic. 

A classic example is a column by sob-story aficionada turned bomb thrower, Laurie Roberts, who describes physician Kelli Ward, the newly elected state Republican chairwoman, using these intended to incite words: “Ward is the reigning queen of the far-right fringe.” Columnist Robert Robb described Dr. Ward’s election as “meaningless.” The backdrop for Robb’s assertion is border security, which his pro-open border and amnesty supporting employer, The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) adamantly opposes. He now sings its tune like a trained parrot.

What Laurie Roberts refers to as the “far-right fringe,” are actually the majority of grassroots Republican elected state committeemen who elected Dr. Ward, a former state senator, while strongly objecting to the prospect of reelecting the ineffectual phantom chairman Jonathan Lines. He was put in place by his slippery predecessor Robert Graham, who still ran the party since Lines resides 200 miles away in Yuma, runs a roofing business and has 11 kids to parent.

The newspaper also has former state senate president Russell Pearce in its sights again. He is referred to as a “hard right conservative.“ In AZ Republicese, this is no compliment. His current job is listed twice in the same article, just in case rabble-rousers missed it the first time.

The report veers off the charts by referring to groups labeled “extremist” by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The group which the newspaper refers to as “monitoring hate,” has itself been outed as a source of vicious hate. Watch this 5-minute Prager University video for a healthy dose of truth.

The agenda driven newspaper continues to harp on the Mueller report as if President Trump had been found guilty of obstruction of justice or Russian collusion, when exactly the opposite conclusion was reached. Though dying of a thousand self-inflicted cuts, it follows many of its articles with these words, “Support local journalism. Subscribe to (gives an email address.)”

Hari-Kari is an ancient Japanese form of ritual suicide by disembowelment. The Arizona Republic is taking the slower path, but the result will be the same. Insulting its remaining subscribers is not a successful business model, yet it is the one to which it is bonded.

Newspaper Death Watch is a web site chronicling the demise of hard copy newspapers, including a section called ‘Works In Progress,’ listing major metro dailies that have cut frequency or adopted hybrid online/print or online-only models. It won’t be much longer before the anorexic, radically left-wing local daily joins the list.


Film critic turned book reviewer goes anti-Trump

April 7, 2019

Try to imagine a report in the Hillary Clinton-endorsing Arizona Republic focused on her myriad lies and her husband’s numerous sexual exploits. Bill, a serial philanderer and accused rapist, was an avid golfer who bragged to his frequent links partner, lawyer/confidant Vernon Jordan, while chopping on a cigar, about his reckless White House cigar interlude with 22-year-old intern, Monica Lewinsky. That got soft-soaped in the local Arizona newspaper, though Clinton was President of the United States, married and over twice the young woman’s age.

Barack Obama appeared to be on the greens more often than he was in the Oval Office, not necessarily a bad thing in his case. He displayed his horrendous judgment by going off on a golfing vacation on Martha’s Vineyard minutes after delivering a statement in which he said he’d just gotten off the phone with journalist James Foley’s parents following news he had been beheaded by Islamic militants. Fun seeker Obama later said he “misjudged the optics” of his timing. The leftist media cut him slack.

Capturing attention in the anti-Trump local newspaper is the review of a newly released book “Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump,” by former sports columnist Rick Reilly, who describes his motivation for writing the book as being, “really mad.”

“What’s wrong with him?” Reilly asks. “This is why I wrote the book. This is what I’m trying to say — there’s something not right about this guy. If you’re going to cheat at golf,” Reilly says, “you’re going to cheat on your taxes, cheat on your wife and cheat on — what else? Elections? If you’re going to lie about your round, why not lie about how many votes you got, or how big your inauguration size was? Do you realize he lies about the size of his buildings? It’s incredible to me.”

Movie critic Bill Goodykoontz, now pulling double duty as a book reviewer, after the anorexic newspaper recently axed its Pulitzer Prize winning political cartoonist, following a series of pink slipping longtime employees, smoothly falls in line with the newspaper’s agenda. He even takes to Twitter to quote Reilly as he revs up the Trump bashing.

This bizarre toadyism has a name. It’s called as “job security.” Robert Robb, once considered a voice of rationality, has also fallen in line, hoping not to be the next employee to feel the dull blade of the newspaper’s ax on his neck. Today, he calls the president’s actions on the border, “irresponsible.”

Abutting Robb’s column in another by a CNN host, beginning with these words: “To call President Trump “Machiavellian” is to give him a little too much credit. Machiavelli had a keen awareness of history and could speak in complete sentences.”

No wonder the newspaper is dying in a state that gave all of its electoral votes to Donald Trump in 2016 and where he remains immensely popular. Trump continues to generate record breaking crowds at his national rallies. The Arizona Republic, whose stock continues to plummet, can barely keep the lights on. Parent company Gannett, Inc. recently averted a hostile takeover by a hedge fund corporation, smelling blood in the water. Shares of Gannett have dropped over 40% since its debut as a public company in 2015, when it split its publishing and broadcasting businesses. In 2018, it sold its 10-story office building and parking garage in downtown Phoenix, becoming a homeless vagrant. The newspaper, hemorrhaging subscriptions and relying on editorless ASU Journalism student interns is hardly in a position to judge success.
