Anti-Trump press gears up for 2020 election

August 17, 2019

Media afflicted by Trump Derangement Syndrome

Editor & Publisher provides an inside look at how the press intends to cover the 2020 Presidential election.

The pathetic 2019 quarterbacking report is filled with recriminations over not giving enough significance to Donald Trump’s emergence on the political scene and the press’ assumptions that he was nothing more than an annoying gnat on the backside of the anointed donkey-rider Hillary Clinton.

Absent is the fact that American citizens were energized by his MAGA message and fed up with scandal-plagued Hillary, who arrogantly dismissed us as a “basket of deplorables.” The equally arrogant press’ most colossal blunder was misreading the electorate, whom they regarded as easily duped by their incessant left-wing coverage.

Realizations of the massive awakening across America was a pill too difficult to swallow. Voters heard a compelling message from the political novice New York businessman. There was an unmistakable authentic clarity to his message.  Hillary’s fate was sealed as reports trickled out of her involvement in the destruction of thousands of emails when they were under congressional subpoena and preservation orders. A practiced charlatan, she blatantly lied about the attacks resulting in the deaths of four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador, at the embassy in Benghazi, Libya. Prior to the Presidential debate, her cohort Donna Brazile — a political strategist and former DNC chair — using her position as a CNN commentator, fed the questions in advance to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. These are merely tip-of-the-iceberg corruptions in which Hillary engaged.

Meanwhile Donald Trump was building a loyal base raising the issues that resonate with Americans from coast to coast. Since being elected he has gone to work fulfilling his promises and has overseen the lowest unemployment rates in decades. The economy is soaring and he’s nominated two justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and many others to the federal district benches.

Editor & Publisher erroneously concludes, “Disillusioned voters blamed the press for a failure to present Trump as a viable nominee, let alone as their likely future president. Some declared that journalists missed the story of the Trump voter entirely.”

The publication either doesn’t comprehend the enormity of President Trump’s energized base or chooses to ignore it. Despite the leftist press’ irrational excuses, and predictions to the contrary, Americans won  (video) and will again in 2020.

Associated Press out of the BDS anti-Israel closet

August 16, 2019

This deceptive Associated Press headline, “Israel bans entry to outspoken US congresswomen,” should have read, “Israel bans entry to virulently anti-Semitic US congresswomen.”  The intentionally misleading word parsing clearly displays the media’s skewed bent, which it no longer attempts to conceal.

Far-left freshmen Democrats Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN), both Muslim members of congress, support the Palestinian-led BDS movement which advocates boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israeli businesses, products, universities and cultural institutions.

National Review recently headlined its revealing report:Omar to Introduce Resolution Declaring Support for Anti-Israel BDS Movement.” On Thursday Omar ludicrously accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of imposing a “Muslim ban,” declaring, “It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government.”

Arizona Sen. Martha McSally, who prior to retiring from the Air Force as a full Colonel, was deployed in the Middle East and supports President Trump’s resolve on the issue.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said his country is “open to critics and criticism,” noted that Tlaib and Omar’s itinerary for the trip “revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy.”

Omar, who PJ Media reported engaged in a marriage with her own brother to perpetrate immigration and student loan fraud, irrationally stated, “Trump’s Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected members of Congress.”

The women, members of what has been described as the congressional “Squad,” routinely refer to the sole democracy in the Middle East in the most derogatory of terms, and, for good measure, condemn President Trump. Omitted from their anti-Semitic tirade is the inconvenient fact that since the formation of the state of Israel in 1948, there have been Arabic members of the Knesset, the legislative body similar to the U.S. Congress. They have been Muslim, Druze, and Christian.

The U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, endorsed the decision to ban Tlaib and Omar, saying Israel “has every right to protect its borders” against promoters of boycotts.


Illegal aliens: The stark realities

August 15, 2019

A favorite cliché is “they’re just coming to do the jobs Americans refuse to do.”

We’ve heard the mantra incessantly over the years. The open-borders/amnesty influence peddlers on the left have been phenomenally successful at getting the Beltway elite and the media to embrace their blanket platitudes about illegal alien invaders. In fact the term itself has been declared verboten by none other than Associated Press.

The deceit surges as elections near. Democrats exploit the issue to lay the groundwork for embracing a racial divide they hope will benefit them. Presidential candidates and U.S. Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, both part of this leftist horde of two dozen challenging President Trump, are vowing to create a White House office to combat “white supremacy” and hate crimes if elected.

Ignored are the vicious crimes perpetrated by illegal aliens.

This headline is a recent example: Illegal alien impregnates 11-year-old Phoenix girl.

Child rapist Carlos Jacinto Cobo-Perez must have been inspired by Enrique Jacobo-Valdez, another illegal alien with a proclivity for 11-year-olds.

Mauricio Berrar-Navidad, 29, and Carlos Palacios-Amaya, 28, both in the United States illegally, though previously deported, repeatedly raped an 11-year-old child in Maryland.

Fidel Lopez, boasting a sixth-grade education preferred raping a small dog, which subsequently had to be euthanized.

United States Illegal Alien Crime Report is filled with recent crimes committed by illegal aliens. The wide variety of criminal categories includes: Terrorism, Assault, Murder, Cop Killings. Drug Crimes, Rape, Children, DUIs, Identity Theft and Most Wanted. Spend some time on the site for a dose of harsh reality.

Don’t be conned by the open borders leftists. Our sieve-like border must be secured. The safety of American citizens takes precedence over misguided and dangerous political correctness.


Will Arizona go to (recreational) pot?

August 10, 2019

The sham of imperiling our youth for the promise of $300 million a year

The guise of medical marijuana has been a scheme that fooled no one. Suddenly there was a rise in youthful patients experiencing “chronic pain” and desperately in need of a “prescription” dispensed by pain doctors, who just happened to be working out of dispensaries with a marijuana plant on the building‘s signage.

The deceptively titledSmart and Safe Arizona Act* was filed Friday with the Secretary of State’s Office. There is little doubt the well-funded measure will collect the necessary signatures to be on the 2020 ballot.

To make the initiative with the deceptive name appear palatable to Arizona voters who turned down a similar measure in 2016, the current version has seemingly socially conscientious provisions attached via a 16% excise tax — including $15 million from the “medical fund” to be directed to the state universities’ Arizona Teacher Academy, $10 million to the Department of Health Services for public health programs and $10 million to the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to reduce impaired driving. Stoned drivers presumably will not get the same level of scrutiny as inebriated ones, who aren’t integral to the charade. It also promises to create thousands of “good-paying jobs” across Arizona, no doubt in dispensaries. The few penalties that are incorporated in the initiative are nothing more than a slap on the wrist.

Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy raises awareness about the harms of marijuana and other substances, and opposes the legalization of marijuana. Its website states: Marijuana is a harmful, addictive substance. Public policy decisions involving marijuana should be based on science, not made in the ballot box.

As a gift to those with multiple convictions, the ballot initiative facilitates expungement and sealing of arrest records, convictions, adjudications, and sentences that were predicated on conduct made lawful by this Act.

For those seeking a more rational, medical assessment of marijuana usage, we urge you to readMarijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence,” a Hillsdale College Imprimus article by Alex Berenson. He details a conversation with his wife, Dr. Jacqueline Berenson, then a senior psychiatrist at Mid-Hudson Forensic Psychiatric Institute. It’s one of three places the state of New York sends the criminally mentally ill defendants judged not guilty by reason of insanity.

There’s no flim-flam. Just cold, hard facts you won’t soon forget. We hope you’ll recall the article when it comes time to vote on this sow’s ear of a measure.

GateHouse buys carcass: AZ Republic sold in Gannett deal

August 8, 2019

The dawn of New Year 2019 gave the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic little to celebrate as it became a homeless vagrant on borrowed time. Since then, the situation facing the newspaper has gone from bad to worse.

By June it was once again on the auction block. If it were a hospital patient, the term “critical” would apply. Earlier, Gannett — the Republic’s parent company — barely survived a hostile takeover by Digital First Media. The Republic has engaged in massive staff layoffs, including Pulitzer-prize winning cartoonist Steve Benson.

The latest news, buried on page 6 of the single page Nation & World section is headlined, “GateHouse buys owner of Republic, azcentral.” Slathering makeup on the corpse, it was announced that New Media will acquire Gannett. Following the close of the transaction, both New Media and its operating subsidiary GateHouse will be rebranded and operate under the “Gannett” label. The deal included GateHouse assuming approximately $600 million of Gannett debt.

Rick Edmonds, writing for Poynter, has compiled an in-depth report on the acquisition including links to memos sent to Gannett and Gatehouse employees.

Look for the next shoe to drop when the 2020 election cycle rolls around and the whichever interchangeable leftist Democrat presidential candidate, promising to give away “free” health care to all, including illegals, and “free” college tuition, wins the newspaper’s endorsement. The Republic’s 2016 Hillary endorsement resulted in a self-admitted massive loss of subscriptions. Repeating a similar move in these precarious circumstances could prove disastrous.

Today’s front page, with more white space and bolder headlines, deceitfully features, “Protests Greet the President” followed by the bogus sub-header, “Visits by Trump to Ohio, Texas stir residents who voice opposition to his rhetoric.” Here’s proof of the extent of the lie. The Last Refuge has more.

USA Today concluded its report with these predictive words:

“The stakes are high. The fate of for-profit local journalism hangs in the balance as the news industry spars with digital giants Google, Facebook and others for revenue and the attention of Americans.”

SRAZ suggests insulting the newspaper’s remaining readers is not a model for success. This is a practice routinely engaged in by the grievously ill Arizona Republic, which is why it is in need of resuscitation.  The conglomerate appears to have amnesia, forgetting that Arizonans — and the nation — overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump. 

We will again.


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.
