AZ Republic reporters lack basic communication skills

October 20, 2019

Another horrific water related incident involving a young valley child occurred Saturday evening. The brief report was submitted by Molly Duerig, identified as a “master’s student at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at ASU.”

The four-sentence report contained this convoluted line: “The child was taken to a hospital, and their condition is still unknown, according to the Mesa Fire Department.”

Using the pronoun “their” to identify a single child, Molly the master student intern, was unable to master the simple pronoun antecedent agreement.

How many errors does the newspaper think the few remaining subscribers are willing to tolerate as they overpay for vicious, leftward skewed news in which President Trump is routinely reviled? (Read the small print “disclosures” regarding the actual rates.)

The failing, Hillary-endorsing, McCain worshiping, Arizona Republic prints a list of dozens of “Corrections and Clarifications,” that any reasonable person would rightly consider excessive.

Corrections refer to errors to which the newspaper has been alerted. Those in charge of errors conveniently include an email address and phone number along with the advisory to, “Please indicate whether you’re responding to content online or in the newspaper.” This message is necessary since both means of delivery are error plagued.

Clarifications refer to unclear messaging requiring interpretation. Know this: just like the rest of the content, it will be biased.

In the days before cutbacks, buyouts and mass layoffs, when journalists and beat reporters were doing the job, they were aided by alert editors — who have also been axed. Even the Pulitzer Prize winning, Trump-hating political cartoonist was given the boot after nearly 4 decades with the newspaper, as part of a staff reduction by former parent company Gannett Co., Inc.

Today, inept ASU Cronkite J School student interns doing the work for a byline instead of a living wage, remain oblivious to the fact that they are training for a obsolete job. They might not know better, but their tuition-paying parents should.

Laddie Guy Shane: Coming out with a vengeance

October 18, 2019

Hate-filled spew, mocking videos aimed at Christian legal advocates

A former Republican low-level worker with a spotty but inflated work history, saddled with the unfortunate moniker Laddie Guy Shane, is now registered PND (Party Not Designated). The longest he worked at any of ten jobs between 2011 and 2019 was as a salesperson at Bass Pro Shops for “2 years and 1 month.” Those facts would not be noteworthy but for his raging spew — directed at the Scottsdale-based, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). Using typical leftist smear tactics, he takes on the legal group that has been a reliable advocate for religious freedom — representing individuals, churches, and organizations that seek to freely live out their faith.

ADF’s attorneys have won nine cases that have reached the U.S. Supreme Court in the past seven years, and approximately 80% of other legal actions, earning respect for its advocacy on behalf of those who are increasingly being squeezed by the radical agenda of the left.

Laddie Guy’s most recent position is as a self aggrandizing “success strategist,” at Spark Solutions USA, whose motto is: ‘You have one little spark of inspiration that we want to make into a great big creation.’ He has obviously taken that slogan to heart, since the clear intent of his opinion piece in the local newspaper with a longstanding pro-gay agenda is to throw one of the nation’s most acclaimed legal organizations under the bus. Using flamboyant hyperbole, he describes himself as an “articulate leader driven to succeed specializing in strategic planning and creating industry leading results through online marketing.”

The dishonest headline topping his ‘Your Turn’ commentary is: “ADF pushes anti-LGBTQ agenda.” In his piece, he says he “learned he was truly blessed when he came out.”  His negative portrayal of ADF is in support of a mocking website,Scottsdale Discriminateswhich refers to the Arizona city where ADF is headquartered, as “intolerant.”

Laddie Guy focuses on what he calls “sex discrimination — pure and simple,” referring to this recent case ADF argued before the Supreme Court.  A man working nearly six years as a funeral director decided he is a woman. After informing the funeral home’s owner that he planned to come to work dressed and made up as a woman, it was deemed unacceptable. Laddie Guy takes the position that the “woman” was qualified to have her job before telling her employer of her intentions, so why is there a problem now?

How about appropriateness? Grieving family and friends have enough to deal with following the death of a loved one without serving as a testing lab for deviant behavior.

Laddie Guy defames the legal group saying, “ADF’s extreme anti-LGBTQ+ activities have been well-documented at all levels – from local school boards to the Supreme Court and in countries around the world.”

The marginal guy with a childish name who has accomplished nothing of consequence, then advocates, “Keep standing up to organizations like Alliance Defending Freedom who will stop at nothing to erase us from the communities to which we rightfully belong. Hate is not a core value of our town and Scottsdale does not stand with, or behind, the acts of ADF.”

Those of us who pay attention enthusiastically support the good work of ADF.


Trump bashed for not criticizing fake video fast enough

October 15, 2019

Truth has no place on network TV

Let’s get this straight: Someone makes a farcical video depicting President Trump viciously attacking his own real life media detractors, and he is being called upon to denounce it.  When he doesn’t do so soon or fervently enough to suit the left, he is reviled further. Keep in mind, he had not even seen the video, nor did he or his campaign have anything to do with its production.

Regardless, President Trump makes a reliable punching bag.

Typical of the skew, NBC’s leftist news anchor Lester Holt began the piling on declaring, “The White House is trying to distance the President from a disturbing video showing a likeness of him violently attacking his political opponents and the news media.”

The Hillary-supporting alphabet networks have been daily revilers of President Trump since he initially announced his candidacy, which they incorrectly deemed a “joke.” CNN has rejected his 30-second re-election campaign ad purchased by the campaign committee, saying it does not meet their standards…as if it had any.

This video features Dem disbelievers, who were unable to deal with this simple truth.


Terrified AZ Republic reporters vote to unionize

October 13, 2019

Coverage will remain biased and anti-conservative

In an effort to preserve their job security, reporters who have survived the firings and cutbacks at the increasingly feeble, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic have voted in favor of unionizing.

The 64-30 secret ballot vote, conducted under the supervision of the National Labor Relations Board indicates a desperate last ditch effort at self preservation.

The newspaper was recently purchased by GateHouse Media in a takeover of Gannett, the parent company of the Arizona Republic, USA Today and owner of more than a hundred other media outlets. The merger is expected to be finalized by the end of November. GateHouse has been ramping up its interest in cutting back on news operations. As part of the mega-merger, GateHouse has told federal regulators that it plans to cut as much as $300 million a year from this combined company.

Those words sounds like the death knell ringing for employees, which explains the new effort to unionize.

Ken Doctor writing for Newsonomics headlines his commentary, with the unwieldy but honest warning: “The Gannett-GateHouse merger is really happening, and expect to see more than 10% of jobs cut off the top.”

The anorexic Arizona Republic has been functioning with ASU Cronkite Journalism School student interns taking on the duties of ousted veteran reporters. Working from their cars and lacking editors, they continue the leftist slant which has resulted in massive losses of subscribers, as we noted last month inReasons AZ Republic continues hemorrhaging subscribers.”  We pointed out the deliberate mischaracterization of issues as the hallmark of what has been correctly identified as fake news.

October 13, 2019’s edition is a case in point. In an article titled, “Conservative publication editor misleads,” an intern takes on Daniel Horowitz, senior editor of Conservative Review. The intern repeatedly uses variations of the term “undocumented immigrant” to challenge Horowitz’ accurate assertion thatGov. Doug Ducey applauded a reduced state college tuition rate for illegal immigrants.” The intern’s rating? “No stars…misleading.” Chief among her complaints is that children born to illegals residing in the U.S. are not illegal. To bolster her charge, she cites what noted legal analysts view as a misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment.

The actual distortions are given a voice in the Arizona Republic each and every day. The interns have been schooled in Leftism and are carrying on the tradition of those who were axed…until they find their own heads on the chopping block.


Pres. Trump’s campaign ad exposes Dems

October 6, 2019

 Truth suppressed by CNN, which refused to run the ad

Do yourself a favor and read,Why Democrats Chase Impeachment,” by Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs (R-CD-5). Recently elected chairman of the influential House Freedom Caucus, Biggs does a masterful job describing the issues driving the frenzied lunacy infecting the Democrats in their effort to take down our president. Not only do they want to invalidate him, they choose to ignore the will of American voters who elected him.


Heroin poppy purge provides sob story for illegals

September 29, 2019

Misplaced sympathy: Actual victims are Americans not Guatemalans

If you thought the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic was loathsome in its previous incarnation, its recent acquisition by GateHouse puts an even more outrageous spin on the news. 

A front page report headed THE MIGRANTS, sits atop the emboldened headline, “Poppies cultivated for heroin fuel crisis.” Below that is the tearjerker line: “Guatemalan farmers fled to U.S. after crops were razed.” This twist puts to rest the illegal invaders claims of seeking fear-based asylum. What they want is economic security in the country they were more than willing to flood with heroin.

Readers are then introduced to Carlos. He previously farmed potatoes, oats and corn, before finding a much more lucrative and prettier crop of bright red poppies he and others like him were happy to cultivate for their milky fluid used to make heroin. Carlos says he and his friends were persuaded to replace their vegetable crops with what he was told would produce medicine.

Sure thing, Carlos.

If you thought the bad guys are the willing farmers, often engaging in violent battles to ensure enough water for their deadly but highly profitable crops — via their complicity in flooding American cities with heroin — you‘d be dead wrong. The ogre in the tale of woe is none other than the United States. Our government has “pressured” Guatemala to eradicate the profitable poppy fields, throwing Carlos and his complicit compatriots back into growing vegetables.

Carlos admits the loss of revenue from growing poppies was the main reason he decided to leave and join the massive influx of Guatemalans invading the U.S.  “They took away the poppy. These potatoes are hardly worth anything.”

He says he heard that as long as parents showed up for their court hearings, they could stay in the U.S. and work while their kids went to public school free. Guatemala, which only requires a sixth grade education, imposes fees for any schooling past that grade level.

These staggering numbers are directly from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. They include 72,873 unaccompanied minors who were apprehended by Border Patrol through August.

During the same time period, Border Patrol apprehended 457,871 illegal invaders arriving as “family units,” a claim which DNA oral swabs frequently expose as untrue. Many of the children used to gain entry by non-related adults are trafficked or purchased. Many are sexually exploited. They are a factor contributing to a 406% increase from the previous year. Of those, nearly 40% — more than from any other single country — came from Guatemala.

These are just a few harsh facts you won’t read in the rag.


Pres. Trump keeps loyal base, despite Dem assault 

September 28, 2019

Rasmussen Reports Friday survey of likely voters holds good news for President Donald Trump and his legions of supporters. The mélange of data is headlined, Voters See Trump’s Reelection Far More Likely Than Impeachment.

Although the pollsters concluded, “Voters think President Trump has more to lose in the growing Ukraine controversy than leading Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden, they still see Trump’s reelection as a surer shot than impeachment.”

Seeing Red AZ attributes those views to the lack of mainstream media coverage of the nefarious and extraordinarily lucrative China and Ukrainian dealings surrounding Hunter Biden and gaffe-prone, deceptive, increasingly unhealthy and unable to keep his dentures in his mouth Papa Joe who paved his unqualified son’s way for a $1.5 Billion private equity deal with the Bank of China that remains unprecedented in the investment world. The “B” is not a typo.

Breitbarts Joshua Caplan exposes the China deal. The same news agency’s Robert Kraychik reveals the muzzle the Washington Post and its leftist news cohorts have placed on any reports of the China and Ukraine scandals involving Hunter Biden. Suppression of news is how the leftist media dominate their readers. Knowledge is power and mental manipulation must exist in a vacuum.

Conservatives have a lot to digest, but we understand the underhanded dealings because we are not spoon fed political pap and robotically fall in line on election day. Rising against the leftist tide, we voted to “Make America Great Again.” In 2022 we’ll be voting to “Keep America Great.”

AZ GOP Chair Dr. Kelli Ward provides important information in the 2019 Precinct Committeeman Handbook.

Get involved. Become a Precinct Committeeman. President Trump can’t do it alone. He needs us as much as we need him.
