Misplaced blame in Colo. school shooting, as red flags ignored

May 8, 2019

Another horrific school shooting has captured headlines. Americans are alerted to the fact that two shooters were responsible for terrorizing and wounding 8 students, some critically, and taking the life of another at a suburban Denver K-12 STEM School.

Gun-control activists are amassing, once again. Reliably, they blame the Second Amendment for the cold-blooded carnage. They are wrong. 

The discussion that should be taking place needs to center on the hard truth that children grow up watching and accepting violence as entertainment. Rather than object, too many parents, longing to be cool rather than parentally authoritative, purchase brutal video games or allow their children to watch movies that feature bloody savagery. Toddlers placed in front of TVs in their bouncy chairs are weaned on aggressively battling cartoon characters.

There is also a mental health component, uncomfortable to acknowledge and all too frequently ignored.

Devon Erickson, the 18-year-old shooter wrote on his Facebook page that he was covered in ink and was addicted to pain. He expressed hatred for faith-based Christians, denigrated Donald Trump and praised Barack Obama.

John Fenton, a news producer with CBS Denver, wrote on Twitter that the “car towed from #stemshooting suspect’s home apparently has ‘F*** SOCIETY’ spray painted on the side. Also ‘666’ and a what looks like a pentagram sprayed on the hood.” These symbols are regarded as a blasphemy against God. A photo of the car is under the Twitter link.

The second suspect, a minor, was not named, but the Denver Channel wrote that multiple sources say, “The second suspect is a transgender male who was in the midst of transitioning from female to male.”

These were more than subtle clues that neither parents nor teachers bothered to pick up on. Devon Erickson, who had guns in a guitar case in his bedroom, went by the name “devonkillz” on his Snapchat account.

That moniker alone should raise suspicions. But no. It’s the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution we need to suppress.

Sports Illustrated goes berserk with burkini model

May 4, 2019

Symbol of oppression glorified

Breitbart News covers Zuhdi Jasser in this report, ‘Insanity’ for Hollywood Leftists to ‘Glorify’ Burkini.

Reading it guarantees you will be more discerning in sifting through increasing levels of leftist lunacy from those who purport to be purveyors of news. Dr. Jasser, a Phoenix physician, is the president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy.

Watch as Dr. Jasser, appearing on the Tucker Carlson show, discusses the bizarre aberration of Kenyan-born, Somalian model and practicing Muslim, Halima Aden wearing a hijab and a “burkini” on the swimsuit edition cover of Sports Illustrated magazine.

…and Twitter went into full tweet mode.

This brief video shows Aden, while garbed in her modest attire, ostentatiously strutting her stuff as a contestant in the 2016 Miss Minnesota USA Pageant.


Educrats team with Planned Parenthood to sexualize children

Cave Creek School District disguises kiddie porn as education

Wednesday’s post,May Day: Significant day for teachers to abandon students,” focused attention on the parallel between Arizona’s #REDSforEd* educrats who walked off their jobs last spring in violation of their contractual agreements  —  and their North and South Carolinian counterparts, who staged walkouts yesterday. 

The May Day timing of the strike was anything but coincidental, as noted by the World Socialist website, which specializes in incendiary and skewed rhetoric to fit its radically leftist agenda, evident by examining other articles on the site.

The report irrationally links American teachers to those in the countries of Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Morocco and the Netherlands where teachers have “struck against the non-payment of wages.” Here, the extortionist teachers, members of far left unions, get paid for abandoning their students and Gov. Ducey, after momentarily playing hardliner, eventually gifted them with a 20% salary hike — which they decided is not nearly enough for their part-time jobs.

All of their antics are infuriating, but the biggest inciter of parental and community rage should be reserved for the “Comprehensive Sex Education” in the process of being implemented in the Cave Creek School District in Arizona. SRAZ commenter “JCF” brought it to our attention, for which we are grateful. Exposing the truth about this insidiously provocative curriculum assists parents in shining a disinfecting dose of sunlight on the shocking agenda that the district and its partner, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider — are attempting to peddle to young children in grades 4 – 8.

It’s critically important to take time to read,Not In Our Schools: Stop the Planned Parenthood Invasion,” and pass it along to others. The graphic imagery being presented to young children is pornographic and normalizes deviancy. In no way is it educational.

Democrats’ bizarre bond with death

April 23, 2019

Earlier this month, Democrat New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy bragged about signing legislation legalizing doctor assisted suicide, becoming the eighth state to casually devalue life. In signing the bill, Murphy, a self-described “lifelong, practicing Catholic,” stated that while he was aware the Church opposed assisted suicide he was signing the bill into law regardless.

The bill was co-sponsored by Assemblyman John Burzichelli and Senator Nick Scutari, both….you guessed it…Democrats.

New Jersey joins other assisted suicide-condoning states with Democrat governors including California, Colorado, Hawaii, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.  Vermont is the stand alone with a Republican chief executive to sign assisted suicide legislation.  

 It’s a slippery slope. Newly-born life has been shockingly devalued by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, another Democrat, who condones infanticide via post-birth abortion saying it‘s a decision to be made by a mother and her provider.  Northam, a medical doctor, is even more reprehensible, since his pre-political career has been as a pediatric neurologist. Although he condones death for innocent babies, he opposes the death penalty for the most horrific criminals, who have committed capital offenses.

Watch this astonishing video of Northam’s interview on CNS News.

Appearing on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor,” program Northam defended the 40-week abortion bill saying, “If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

New York’s leftist Gov. Andrew Cuomo celebrated signing into law abortion up until birth. Watch this Fox and Friends video featuring New York Archbishop, Cardinal Timothy Dolan discussing how Democrats changed their previous abortion rhetoric from “safe, legal and rare” to what has now morphed into “dangerous, enforced and frequent.”

 Cuomo has gone to the mat banning single use of plastic bags, which he prioritizes over human life.


Support for rebuilding Notre Dame questioned by AZ Republic

April 17, 2019

While the world mourns the destructive fire at Paris’ nearly 900-year-old Notre Dame Cathedral, the local newspaper poses this question: “…But some ask: What about our sacred sites?” The article was written by Shondiin Silversmith, identified as an “Indigenous Peoples Reporter.”

After the Notre Dame Cathedral was partially destroyed by a fire Monday, funds immediately started to roll in for reconstruction.

With an outpouring of support from across the world, many Indigenous people asked, where is this support when Indigenous people fight for their sacred sites?

Our answer, of course, will be politically incorrect by the leftist standards of the newspaper.  But not nearly on par with U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who responded with this outrageously insulting tweet neutering the actual significance of the Christian cathedral to a loss of “art and architecture.” Somali-born Omar, who wears a hijab head scarf in congress, is the one who described the horrors of Sept. 11, 2001 by saying, “Some people did something,” not wanting to describe the deliberate murders of 2,977 people as being perpetrated by 19 of her radicalized co-religionists who hijacked commercial airliners, flying two of them directly into the World Trade Center towers and another into the Pentagon. The New York Post responded with this spot-on front page, seen following this post.

The nationwide prospect of high stakes casino gambling that began flourishing on tribal land in the 1970’s had the immediate impact of turning sacred sites into lucrative ones. Indian reservation gambling generates far more income than Atlantic City and Las Vegas combined. Arizona, alone, has more than two dozen casinos. The national list is available here.

This 2017 press release from the National Indian Gaming Commission reports, Fiscal Year 2017 Gross Gaming Revenue amount saw an increase of 3.9% over 2016, totaling $32.4 billion.

The newspaper quotes America-hating Klee Benally whose website uses this descriptive language as an identifier:

“Indigenous Action Media (IAM) was founded on August 25th, 2001 to provide strategic communications and direct action support for Indigenous communities sacred lands defense. We are a radical volunteer collective of experienced Indigenous media makers & agitators that work together on a project by project basis for media justice from an anti-colonial & anti-capitalist framework.”

President Donald Trump is compared to Hitler, an indefensible slur used by the historically illiterate Benally. Still he is quoted as if he were a mainstream American rather than one who abhors our system that has allowed him the freedom to sit at a computer and spew venom.


Walking outside the lines isn’t cool, in AZ it’s deadly 

April 15, 2019

States that legalized marijuana use since 2012 experienced a collective 16.4% increase in pedestrian fatalities

It took a couple of student reporters at the daily two additional pages backing up their front page investigative report on crosswalk deaths that have spiraled in Arizona. Including an oversize a graphic and aerial photo view of a mid-street crosswalk in West Phoenix, the report is titled, “The  Perils for Pedestrians,” linking to Arizona Department of Transportation Crash Data.

The conclusion reached by the duo is found in this adjacent headline: “Key to solving problem lies in overhaul of state’s roadways.” Not to belittle the needless deaths, but the reality is it’s not the roadways, it’s the pedestrians. Though the authors point to the deadliest area being on a stretch of 27th Avenue, north of Bethany Home Road, referring to it as “dimly lit,” the problem would exist if high intensity beacons were trained on the thoroughfare.

The escalation in fatalities dovetails with the lack if respect for authority and laws. Few pedestrians walk up to a crosswalk to cross the street. It has become all too common to see parents crossing mid-block with young children in tow.  Not only are the parents imperiling their safety, but they are teaching their children that the lines in the street don’t apply to them.  A police officer asked about the lack of enforcement when this dangerous behavior is observed, stated, “It’s a cultural thing.”

What culture teaches their children that rules apply to others but not to them, or their view children as expendable?

Another factor to be considered is the peak in pedestrian fatalities occurring on Saturday nights and weekends when alcohol is frequently a factor.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released preliminary fatal traffic crash data for all road users for calendar year 2016 (the most recent year that complete crash data is available) and estimates show that this may have been the deadliest year since 1990 for pedestrians. Motorcyclist and pedestrian deaths accounted for more than a third of the year-to-year increase.

The Governors Highway Safety Association Spotlight on Pedestrian Traffic Fatalities, reported nearly 6,000 pedestrians were killed in motor vehicle crashes in 2017 based on data provided by all 50 State Highway Safety Offices and the District of Columbia.

Among the reported findings:

  • Twenty three states (and Washington DC) had increases in pedestrian fatalities.
  • Twenty states had decreases in pedestrian fatalities.
  • Seven states had no change in pedestrian fatalities.
  • Both Hawaii and Wyoming had only 1 pedestrian death, while California had 352.
  • Arizona was among five states (including California, Florida, New York and Texas) that accounted for 43% of all pedestrian deaths.
  • The seven states (and Washington DC) that have legalized marijuana use since 2012 experienced a collective 16.4% increase in pedestrian fatalities in 2017 (compared to same time period in 2016). All other states had a collective 5.8% decrease.

Associated Press’ 2019 guidelines veer further left

April 9, 2019

Reporters instructed on retooling language in an effort to reconfigure attitudes

It’s not just about grammar and capitalization conundrums. Nope. Those zany folks at Associate Press are hard at work attempting to recraft your attitudes via 2019 stylebook guidelines. Though President Trump is not specifically mentioned, anti-Trumpism is always bubbling beneath the surface in news coverage.

The terms “racist” and “racism” are deserving of their own chapter. It is 2019, after all, and the stylebook’s audience is aimed at reporters who put a premium on dividing us according to ethnicity. African American has lost its dash with the removal of the hyphen. Americans who prefer to just be Americans are out’a luck. Are you unfamiliar with the term “Latinx?” It’s the gender-neutral or nonbinary alternative to Latino or Latina. AP is not simply a news agency. It also constructs language.

Illogically the focus on race is followed up with, “Consider carefully when deciding whether to identify people by race. Often, it is an irrelevant factor and drawing unnecessary attention to someone’s race or ethnicity can be interpreted as bigotry.”

In 2013, SRAZ posted,Winston Smith: Alive and well at Associated Press. “

That was followed in 2017 byAP reconfigures language, tries to control thinking — again,” in which the stylebook urged journalists to avoid making references in news stories that suggest there are only two sexes in the human race.

In 2010, the Diversity Committee of the Society of Professional Journalists called on news reporters nationwide to stop using the term “illegal immigrant” in their news coverage —- preferring “undocumented workers” or “undocumented immigrants.”

As early as 2008, at the height of the war on terror, we exposed the absurd guidelines from the Society of Professional Journalists, which called for grouping white supremacists and “radical anti-abortionists” with Islamic terrorists. Jihad was not only verboten, it was sympathetically referred to as “exert[ing] oneself for the good of Islam and to better oneself.” None dare call it what it is: A militant Islamic movement threatening Western civilization.

These two gems were specific in their instructions:

– When writing about terrorism, remember to include white supremacist, radical anti-abortionists and other groups with a history of such activity.

– Use photos and features to demystify veils, turbans and other cultural articles and customs.

The 2019 stylebook’s lead editor Paula Froke, slickly states, “Our first audience is journalists, but the audience is very broad.”

The indisputable fact is, American citizens are the intended audience for the double speak and attitude adjustments. The majority of what you see and hear is fabricated with these leftist threads. Students are inundated with it from kindergarten through graduate school. What was once heralded as the free press, has grotesquely transmogrified to purveyors of mind control.
