Mark Kelly: Dem $enate challenger’s big con

April 16, 2019

Mr. Gabby Giffords, a deceptive, hypocritical gun disdaining Democrat, also know as Mark Kelly, is reportedly steering clear of corporate PAC money as he wages his fledgling campaign for the U.S. Senate. Republican Martha McSally, who formerly represented AZ CD 2 in the U.S. House, currently holds that post, though she will have to run again in 2022.

Kelly has placed himself in a precarious position with the local newspaper, which never sees a leftist it doesn’t deem worthy of support. His facile two-step on corporate funding has forced the Hillary Clinton-endorsing newspaper to headline a report on Kelly with these words, “Mark Kelly shuns corporate PACs, but his ties with corporate money are more complicated.”

“More complicated”? The failing newspaper could have saved space and ink by simply printing “deceitful.”

Leftist Act Blue — akin to MoveOn.org, part of a syndicate of radical George Soros funded groups masquerading as “grassroots” organizations — unequivocally declares, “Mark Kelly is rejecting corporate PAC money.”

In this campaign video posted on Twitter, Kelly damns the money that traditionally has funded political campaigns claiming it “divides us” and “poisons our democracy.”

Mark Kelly’s campaign rhetoric is crafted to give him an aura of high mindedness, but don’t be fooled into thinking he actually rejects money from business interests. He’s just another double-talking Democrat saying whatever he thinks it takes to win an election.

Kelly held a stealth fundraiser in Washington, D.C. in March. It was later revealed to be hosted by lobbyists whose corporate clients include Comcast, Exxon Mobil and Chevron, Wall Street banks such as JPMorgan Chase, defense industry giant Lockheed Martin and the massive pharmaceutical lobbying group PhRMA. Walmart, numerous health care, real estate, securities companies and sport franchises were represented — all of whom were kept under wraps by hypocrite Mark Kelly.

What Kelly does and says, as he makes these assertions while corporate lobbyists are raising increasing amounts of money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) bear no resemblance to each other. Although Mark Kelly has never previously run for office, the Obama cohort is as much of a charlatan as any seasoned Democrat politico.

Until his duplicity was exposed, Kelly continued to earn money on the speakers circuit from groups aligned with business interests, making an average of $25,000 per speech for presentations made through the Keppler Speakers bureau. He gives the same speech, merely filling in the blanks pertaining to the group he’s addressing and city he’s appearing in. Mark Kelly must have something to recommend him, but he does a commendable job keeping whatever it is concealed.

Second Amendment supporters should be aware Kelly heads a gun control group, “Americans for Responsible Solutions.” Mark Kelly is nothing more than a slippery leftist with zero credentials

#REDSforEd teachers followed actual dunce, Noah Karvelis

April 12, 2019

For many Arizona parents, the anger over their children’s teachers abandoning them and sneering at their contractual obligations as they went out on strike for over a week, still rages. The bond of trust was irretrievably broken as they deserted over 840,000 students while over demanding a 20% pay increase for their part-time employment.

Newly elected Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman boasted she “proudly voted to walk out” with her fellow #REDSforEd striking teachers as they followed Socialist Pied Piper Noah Karvelis a 24-year-old hip hop music teacher and avowed Socialist. Hoffman, whose own teaching credentials are paper thin, says she was “inspired by unity within the movement.”

Not only are these educrats intent on dumbing down Arizona students, ironically Noah Karvelis is now being exposed as also being a failed student himself.

Breitbart News reports Karvelis only holds a “provisional” teaching certificate, having failed to complete the required coursework and pass tests on the U.S. Constitution and the Arizona Constitution — documents on which he places no value. Popular KFYI-550 AM conservative talk show host James T. Harris, previously outed Karvelis‘ insufficient credentials.

Important to remember is the fact “underpaid” teachers, who work 81/2 months a year, are able to support the far left teacher’s unions* to the tune of $millions a year, earmarked for Democrat candidates and liberal causes.

These same people are undermining the values conservative parents try to instill in their children. Karvelis’ résumé states he served as campaign manager to elect leftist Kathy Hoffman and was also a volunteer for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. Additionally Karvelis has been a political consultant and staff writer for the Progressive Times, which defines itself on its masthead with this banner: “Progressive, independent journalism for the political revolution.” His mantra is, Teaching is political, and silence is complicity. Karvelis, a young white male. is also a self-hater.

This is akin to putting Marxists in charge of educating our children. Noah Karvelis, and those who march to his extremist tune, are dangerously influencing America’s youth, steering them away from democracy that flourishes in our representative Republic, and into the killing fields of Socialism.

Rare truth was contained in the words of then-retiring NEA legal counsel Bob Chanin. Listen to his admission carefully.(brief video.) He admits that the unions are about money, power, and a leftist agenda —- clearly stating “It’s not because we care about children.

Passage of ballot propositions — 301 in 2000 increasing the state sales tax and 123 in 2016 a grab from the state land trust — guaranteed more money for education, which apparently is never enough. School districts routinely hold budget overrides and bond elections to “get more money into the classroom” —- eduspeak for bolstering teacher’s salaries. A major premise of passing the Arizona Lottery in 1980 was that money from ticket sales would fund schools.

Falling prey to the teacher’s demands was foolishness personified. Akin to attempting to bribe a mobster, no amount will ever be enough.

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.


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.


It’s April Fools’ Day: Don’t let Hiral Tipirneni fool you

April 1, 2019

Lying, losing, leftist returns to try another Congressional con

The Tax Foundation created Tax Freedom Day as a way of calculating how many days Americans need to work to pay for government services. 109 days into this year, we’ve earned enough to cover our share of the tab.

In Arizona, where our sales taxes are among the nation‘s highest, we don’t reach tax freedom day until next Tuesday, April 9. That fact no doubt strikes you as excessive. But a carpet-bagging congressional candidate doesn’t think so.

We share this important information because the Democrat retread candidate, who lost two previous congressional races last year (one was a special election after U.S. Rep. Trent Frank’s resignation) challenging Republican U.S. Rep. Debbie Lesko, is back again. Realizing that running in Arizona’s Congressional District 8 was a losing proposition, Hiral Tipirneni is now challenging U.S. Rep. David Schweikert, in CD 6, where she is not even a resident. This is not technically illegal, though it smacks of opportunism and raises the question of motivation.

Prior to being elected to Congress in 2010, Republican Schweikert was an elected state legislator and Maricopa County Treasurer. He currently serves on the powerful House Ways and Means Tax and Trade Subcommittees, and is known as an effective numbers cruncher. His Issues Page defines his priorities. Senator Mike Lee, chairman of the Joint Economic Committee (JEC), announced Congressman David Schweikert will lead House Republicans on JEC.

A typical big spending liberal who desires to expand Medicare to cover all, Tipirneni’s technique for further bloating government programs is raising the amount of withholding taxes. If you’re conversant in Tipirneniese, you’ll understand that the slippery Democrat doesn’t think workers are taxed enough.

When she ran in the West Valley’s CD 8, Tipirneni’s campaign ads depicted her wearing medical scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck, contrived to give the impression she was a working physician. Conveniently omitted was the fact that she hasn’t practiced medicine since 2007, when she was successfully sued for malpractice. No longer practicing medicine, the dedicated leftist made $millions promoting Obamacare. The patient she maltreated is no longer above ground to vote against Hiral Tipirneni, but if you live in District 6, you can. (Zoom in to see the boundaries.)


Smollett aided beating the rap by Obama, $oros connections

March 28, 2019

The Chicago Tribune details the double standard for celebrity Jussie Smollett in what turned out to be a hoax rather than the “hate crime” he reported to police. The headline from the local newspaper blasts, “Chicago police files on Jussie Smollett investigation show behind-the-scenes maneuvers.”

The back story is even more despicable than his fraudulent tale concocted to boost his salary for the televised series in which he participated.

By all accounts, the police work — including thousands of hours diverted from real crimes in the war zone of Chicago — was diligent and impeccably carried out.  Smollett, black and gay, alleged that he had been a crime victim carried out by two men who bound and poured bleach over him.  And what a surprise, the assailants who just happened to be wearing President Trump’s MAGA (Make America Great Again) hats yelled racial slurs at Smollett. It plays out like a script, right down to a threatening letter that was sent to Smollett after he wasn’t getting the reaction he desired. He was behind that, too. The men, Nigerian brothers, were found to have cashed a $3,500 partial payment check from Smollett. The incident supposedly occurred at 2 a.m. as Smollett was walking back to his apartment from a Subway sandwich shop —- assuring there would be no witnesses.

Problems arose when surveillance tapes showed a much different scenario than the one described by actor Smollett. In the end the 16-count indictment handed down by a Chicago Grand Jury meant nothing. He ultimately was sentenced to a couple of days of community service logging it in with Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition. That, and forfeiture of his $10,000 bond was bizarrely enough to satisfy prosecutors in Chicago.

The most riveting aspect of the contemptible saga is the chain of “angels” who shone their purifying light on this fake victim of a sham hate crime specifically constructed with a vicious anti-Trump angle. Former First Lady Michelle Obama had a hand in this legal debacle. Her onetime chief of staff, Tina Tchen, also a lawyer, personally contacted the Illinois State’s Attorney to put in a good word for Smollett, exchanging  text messages (here and here) with prosecutor Kim Foxx before charges were dropped. In one of the messages, Tchen urged Foxx to convince Chicago police to hand the investigation over to the FBI, where Obama still had sway. Replete with trendy liberal speak the exchanges are filled with “reaching out.” Liberals don’t contact one another. Neither do they have problems. Liberals have “issues.”

Messages on this level are compelling stuff if you’re a Democrat in Barack Obama’s hometown.

Foxx was a former chief aide to Cook County Board president before she caught the eye of Socialist billionaire George Soros  He’s also a player, funneling a reported* two $300,000 donations to a Super PAC to support Kim Foxx’ campaign, an additional $333,000 personal contribution, plus $75,000 after she won —- all in his quest to realign the criminal justice system in his skewed image. He’s also funded Secretary of State campaigns and others responsible for election oversight. Soros, who disdains national borders, dumped money into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s race ensuring leftist, wife-beater Paul Penzone had sufficient funding to take out popular, 6-term Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Immediately after being sworn in, and right on cue, Penzone referred to illegal invaders as “guests.”

When Kim Foxx was elected in 2016, she made this statement: “I ran for this office to make sure that we had a criminal justice system people can believe in. That’s my duty.”

Apparently her “duty” cap fell off as she raced to appease the Obama’s and fulfill her obligation to George Soros.

AZ Sen. candidate Mark Kelly holds stealth DC fundraiser

March 26, 2019

This invitation to Mr. Gabby Gifford’s U.S. Senate fundraiser definitely qualifies as unusual. It’s being held today, but the non-committal host committee is still “in formation.” Additionally, the location is secret. The invitation gives a single clue: it’s somewhere in “Downtown Washington, D.C.” The address will only be provided upon the receipt of an RSVP — presumably with a credit card attached. Registrations are taken at an ActBlue email address.

ActBlue’s website promises candidates it will “harness the power of the grassroots,” which raises the question for Mr. Giffords, wouldn’t the grassroots he intends to harness and wants to represent be in Arizona and shouldn’t he be committed to harnessing them himself?

The connection between ActBlue and Socialist billionaire George Soros was revealed here a decade ago. This Kelly/Gifford’s character is not a mainstream Democrat partisan. He’s a far-leftist in addition to being a gun hypocrite who purchased an AR-15, a 1911-style semi-automatic pistol and “high capacity” magazines at a Tucson gun store the day after testifying to Congress in favor of restricting our Second Amendment rights.
