Why stabbing fatalities fly under the media radar

August 9, 2019

The recent wave of killings of innocents by knife wielding criminals has garnered scant coverage by the left-wing, agendized news media. In the past couple of days, vicious stabbing fatalities have increased without grabbing national headlines or being exploited by Democrat politicians.

Zachary Castaneda, a 33-year-old convicted felon and known gang member — described by the Garden Grove, California police chief as “full of anger” motivated by “robbery, hate, homicide,” — went on a two-hour, two-handed stabbing and robbery rampage in Southern California. He randomly killed four people and wounded two others using “some sort of machete knives.”  Law enforcement officials say changes in state law led to Castaneda being released from prison earlier than he previously would have been. In 2011 California’s Democrat controlled legislature, passed Assembly Bill 109, approved by Democrat Gov. Jerry Brown. The aim was to reduce prison populations via machinations.

The police chief noted the suspect and all his victims were Hispanic.

This clearly doesn’t play into the “racist” narrative that has irrationally been hung around President Trump’s neck by scheming leftists.

Neither does the stabbing fatality that took place in New York as William Rivas, 39, fatally stabbed his wife, Carmen Santiago multiple times in the back at a nail salon where she worked. Shocked witnesses filmed part of the horrific, bloody attack on their phones.

Hispanic killers don’t fit the left’s hypocritical playbook. Neither are knifes and machetes included in Second Amendment protections that radical leftists want to abolish.  There is no equivalent of the NRA protecting long blades.

Media irretrievably corrupted: contemptible arm of Dem Party

August 7, 2019

Beware: Gun control is on the horizon

The New York Times, which ordinarily doesn’t allow access to non-subscribers, has broken its own rule to herald this headlined report:Red Flag’ Gun Control Bills Pick Up Momentum With G.O.P. in Congress. It’s linked from a bright red Drudge Report header blasting: “Republicans coalesce around gun control.” 

As Second Amendment supporters ponder what exactly is looming, take a moment to remember that this is the same newspaper that caved to leftist pressure Tuesday and changed a headline that treated President Trump objectively and without interjected liberal malice.

The NYT’s early edition carried the headline, “TRUMP URGES UNITY VS. RACISM,”  in which he strongly condemned “White Supremacy.” That was too evenhanded to suit the likes of gesticulator Robert Francis O’Rourke, nicknamed “Beto” as a boy by his family’s Mexican maid.

After a fury of liberal backlash was unleashed — O’Rourke called the headline “unbelievable” and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez termed it “cowardice” — the newspaper capitulated, changing the headline in a later edition to: “ASSAILING HATE, BUT NOT GUNS.” 

Even in her dotage, the once venerable Gray Lady, founded in 1865 should have known better than to rile her base with a front-page headline which gave a positive impression of President Donald Trump’s response to two mass shootings. Wielding its heft, today’s left has made the Mafia in its heyday, look tame.

The NRA has an entire section dedicated to state gun laws. Arizona’s informative page can be accessed here.

Red Flag laws, which sharply curtail the rights of Americans, are currently being pushed by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey as he channels his mentor John McCain. He calls his version the Severe Threat Order of Protection or STOP. Breitbart covered the depths of Ducey’s deception.

Following the recent Texas and Ohio premeditated murders, the NRA, now facing internal problems after briefly bringing in the arrogant Oliver North, issued this statement, NRA Welcomes Call to Address Root Causes of Violence which contains these words:

“The NRA welcomes the President’s call to address the root causes of the horrific acts of violence that have occurred in our country.  It has been the NRA’s long-standing position that those who have been adjudicated as a danger to themselves or others should not have access to firearms and should be admitted for treatment.”

Meanwhile, in the most bizarre of alliances, Sens. Lindsey Graham (R- SC) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), yes…he’s the one who deceitfully claimed to be a Vietnam combat veteran, though he never set foot in the war-torn country — announced a bipartisan bill that would create a federal grant program to aid states in adopting “Red Flag” laws, in response to the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton over the weekend.

The law, a knee-jerk response to the dual killing rampages, permits police or family members to petition a state court to order the removal of firearms from a person who they believe may present a danger to others or themselves. It is rife for abuse.

“These grants will be given to law enforcement so they can hire and consult with mental health professionals to better determine which cases need to be acted upon,” Graham said in a statement.


Why wasn’t Obama blamed for Sandy Hook, other massacres?

August 6, 2019

In the wake of the two horrific mass shootings this past weekend, the drumbeat emanating from the left is as reliable as day following night. Regardless of how they report or discuss the unrelated slaughters of innocents, the blame is always placed at the feet of President Donald Trump.  Barack Obama was in office from Jan. 20, 2009 to Jan. 20, 2017, during which time numerous gun related killings occurred. The inconceivably horrific Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in which 26 people were killed, including 20 six and seven year-old children, occurred two weeks into Obama’s second term.

He was never blamed.

The Arizona Republic continues on it’s politicizing rampage today:

Few things rev up radical leftwing columnist EJ Montini more than elected members of congress offering sympathy in the form of prayers or even as in the case of atheist Democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema tweeting her “heart is with the people of the people of El Paso.” He derides Republicans, Congressman Andy Biggs’ and Sen. Martha McSally’s responses, calling them “lame.” What hater Montini actually wants is total obliteration of the Second Amendment.

Racist Elvia Diaz, the bigoted Linda Valdez replacement, devotes a column to asking, “Why is evil by whites excused as mental illness?”

Syndicated Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen, a Trump-hater extraordinaire whose column appears in today’s Arizona Republic, writes, “Republicans have trapped us in dark age. “  It begins with these incendiary words:

“The Republican Party is the modern-day equivalent of the medieval church. It fights science. It protects ignorance. Above all, it embraces a lunatic reading of the Second Amendment so that any nut can buy a weapon that can kill a maximum number of people in a minimum amount of time.”

The horrific Boston Marathon bombing occurred on April 15, 2013, celebrated as Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts, and occurred under Barack Obama‘s watch. Two Muslim brothers who immigrated with their parents from the former Soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan diligently crafted homemade pressure cooker bombs set to detonate near the finish line. Three people, two young women and a little boy were killed, and hundreds of others were wounded, including 16 who lost limbs, one a 7-year old girl.

There were no calls to ban pressure cookers and no blame hurled at Obama — nor should there have been.

Rational Americans should question the radical left’s double standard.


AZ Republic sows hatred, blames mass murders on Trump

August 5, 2019

Count on the failing Arizona Republic to ensure its even more rapid demise. The troubled, Hillary-endorsing newspaper appears unable to control itself, even when its own existence is at stake. Today’s spew from the “editorial board” following the El Paso massacre is a case in point. The headline, “Trump cannot help El Paso heal; his words ensured that,” blames the President for the senseless killing spree committed by an obviously troubled, 21-year-old domestic terrorist. His actions were replicated within hours at a bar in Dayton, Ohio, by another young murderer who also gunned down his own sister.

The newspaper devoted a nearly full page report to printing the names and bios of five of the six Mexican national victims — one remains unidentified — among the 20 killed in El Paso. American citizens rated no such coverage.

Topping the disingenuous tripe passing for an editorial are these words: Trump’s use of ‘invasion’ to describe Mexican-American immigrants created an atmosphere of hate.

Let’s cut to the chase.  America is being invaded. When hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens caravan into our sovereign nation, it is nothing short of an invasion. Actual immigrants use our generous system to gain legal access to our country. Those who breach our border in violation of our laws have neither respect nor love for the United States. If they truly seek asylum, Central Americans would claim it in Mexico, the first country they enter. But Mexico doesn’t offer the benefits they can readily access in the USA, nor does it want them.

The editorial’s online version extensively quotes Peter Simi a Trump-hating liberal associate professor of sociology at Chapman University — currently working on a book examining the domestic front in the “war on terror” boorishly titled: “Sting: Inside the FBI’s Provocation of Terror.” 

Simi failed miserably attempting to link the Trump administration to connections with and effect on white supremacists and neo-Nazi propaganda. He added that Trump senior advisor Stephen Miller followed and retweeted David Duke, omitting the fact that Miller, a descendant of Russian immigrants escaping persecution in the early 1900’s, is Jewish, hardly a Nazi sympathizer.

Simi deceptively rants, “Normally, when someone from the Republican party is elected President, they’re probably not going to receive a lot of active support from white supremacists. White supremacists over the years have become disconnected from mainstream politics. With Trump, it seems to have galvanized them and given them some hope for being able to utilize the system.”

“There’s this pot that’s been simmering, and he pulled the lid off and gave permission in some ways for people to act on their angers, frustration, fears, xenophobia, racism, anti-Semitism and everything else.”

In his blatant attempt to link President Trump to anti-Semitism, this agendized goon neglects crucial points. Trump is the loving father, father-in-law and grandfather of orthodox Jews, Ivanka, her husband Jared Kushner and their three children. He is a resolute supporter of Israel, following through on his campaign promise to support moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Israel’s capital, and has maintained a strong relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who leads the lone democracy in the Middle East. To no one’s surprise, Simi never mentions the anti-Semitic spew that routinely emanates from members of the radical Democrat freshman congressional members now known as “The Squad.”

The desperate Arizona Republic, now a homeless vagrant on borrowed time, is dying, vomiting lies with its last gasps and shamelessly providing cover to others of its ilk. Save your money and sanity. If you are among the dwindling number of subscribers, ditch the newspaper, which is nothing more than a purveyor of deception.


“Gentleman” murders 20, wounds 26 in El Paso

August 4, 2019

Copycat slaughter took place early Sunday morning at a bar in Dayton, Ohio with 10 confirmed dead — including the gunman’s own sister — and over 2 dozen wounded

Chris Babcock, Editor-in-Chief of the El Paso Herald-Post was interviewed Saturday evening regarding the horrific mass murder at a local Walmart. He indicated a decision was made by local authorities not to release the name of the killer who was taken into custody at the scene. The rationale was notoriety was exactly what such a murderer seeks. Fair enough — though the identity of the 21-year-old random executioner and his “manifesto” which he titled with the Algorian name, “An Inconvenient Truth,” had already been widely released. In it the fiendish shooter said he was “inspired” by the massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand that left 51 dead in March.

The killing was not impulsive. He traveled over 10 hours from the home where he lived with his parents to reach his shopping mall destination. He wore a bullet-proof vest.

The calculated assassin indiscriminately killed adults and children, many making purchases of clothing and school supplies in anticipation of the coming school year. A four-month-old infant was among the dead.

The carnage was compounded by the irrational language of the leftist editor of the radical, Hillary-endorsing newspaper. Not only did he deceitfully say Donald Trump, “has shown himself to be a bigot and xenophobe,” Chris Babcock (using the cover of the “editorial board,” much as Editorial Page editor Phil Boas does in the Arizona Republic) also alleged President Trump hates “immigrants,” although First Lady Melania was born in Slovenia.

But topping the irrationality cake is Babcock describing the assassin as “a gentleman,” during an audio interview with Fox News Channel following the massacre.

When you work for a leftist newspaper — where manipulating the language comes effortlessly — it must be easy to lose track of the fact that words actually have meanings. “Gentleman” refers to a chivalrous, courteous, or honorable man of refinement. Editor-in-Chief Babcock was referring to a scheming and soulless killer.

Chris Babcock must think he’s Winston Smith.


AZ Republic‘s reprehensible cover-up of a cover-up

July 16, 2019

A local priest, now retired, has died. In his sleep. In Ireland. Michael O’Grady, a priest since 1958, was designated a monsignor by Pope John Paul II. According to the newspaper report, O’Grady, 85, moved around a lot, with stints at churches throughout the Valley — at least six, from Mesa and Tempe to Phoenix and Scottsdale.

The article is accompanied by a photo of the broadly smiling priest, described as having a “great humor, demeanor and holiness.” Another description included the words, “humble and generous, especially to the poor.” Yet another recalled him as “so human, so humble and truly one of a kind.” At one parish’s yearly St. Patrick Day Party, O’Grady told jokes, sang songs and danced the reel.

One nun described how much O’Grady “cared about people, especially children.”

As Shakespeare‘s character Hamlet, was known to have said, “Therein lies the rub.”

It took student reporter Claire Rafford eight paragraphs to use the word, “however” in the following paragraph:

O’Grady, however, was accused of covering up for a fellow priest during the diocese’s sex-abuse scandal. He was accused by at least one victim and his family of failing to act when told that the Rev. Patrick Colleary, an associate at Holy Spirit. (a Mesa Church), was suspected of molesting the child in the late 1970s. The diocese reached a settlement with the victim in 2005.

Contemptible Rev. Colleary strenuously fought extradition from Ireland where he ran, claiming among other things that thenSheriff Joe Arpaio made the inmates wear pink underwear which the child molester thought demeaning. Colluding with Colleary, Ireland refused to extradite him.

O’Grady, given glowing praise in death, was equally disgraceful. He gave child molester Colleary cover. Interesting that the two of them ended up together in Ireland — which refuses to extradite criminals even when the death penalty is not being considered.

Since 2003 BishopAccountability.org has maintained an extensive database documenting the church’s sexual abuse crisis. Patrick Colleary, along with his photo and news reports is midway down on the ‘Ireland Database.’ You’ll find more facts there than in the feeble newspaper account.


Sheriff Joe sightings drive local newspaper berserk

July 15, 2019

Arpaio supporters know how to raise the left’s ire

It’s mid-July in Phoenix. Garden flowers wilt. Heat-induced lethargy sets in. This is hardly the time to taunt voters with campaign related enigmas. But if any name is a guaranteed attention grabber, it’s that of retired Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. 

The lunatics at the local newspaper are going even battier — with a report about the popular former sheriff, elected to an unprecedented six-four-year terms from 1993 to 2016. 

The report derisively describes large billboards mysteriously springing up around the Valley, making it all the more amusing to read. The billboards, featuring a large photo of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a badge affixed to his tailored uniform shirt, with law enforcement emblems on each upper sleeve, looks official enough to be a campaign ad. The rest of the billboard has white lettering on bright red background:  “Sheriff Joe.  One More time.  2020.”

That’s it. There is no declaration of an office, or who paid for the signs, though the spectacular tease exemplifies Arpaio, which makes it priceless.

The anything-for-a-buck editorial page editor Phil Boas, fearful of being next among the myriad staff cuts at the failing newspaper, reprehensibly oversaw the daily multi-pronged assault on Arpaio — his own father-in-law.

Current Sheriff Paul Penzone, who Boas helped elect, is supportive of open borders, and notable for referring to illegal aliens as “guests” immediately after he was sworn in. He won with a reported $3 Million cash infusion from his Socialist benefactor George Soros, who also funded the campaign of Kim Foxx, when she was a candidate for Cook County State’s Attorney.

Foxx, whose office became notorious after she dropped all charges against Empire actor Jussie Smollett following revelations he falsified a racist and homophobic attack against himself in a failed effort to raise his profile and salary. She was featured at a fundraiser hosted by Alex Soros, son of radical leftist billionaire, George Soros, who also donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to a super PAC supporting her.

Globalist Soros, also a dedicated McCain supporter, disdains national borders and favoring laxer criminal prosecution, used the same tactics in his failed attempt to remove Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery — attempting to replace him with an unknown, accommodating leftist. High dollar donations funneled through his PACs are his modus operandi throughout the country as noted by Politico in this report: George Soros’ quiet overhaul of the U.S. justice system. We urge you to read it.  Knowledge is power.  Prepare for the coming elections.
