Truth is inconvenient, so why not lie…even on Presidents Day?

February 17, 2020

Since readership has fallen to the level of a cadaver’s blood pressure, the inconsequential, radically leftist local newspaper is willing to use any provocative means in its attempt to keep itself afloat. Emaciated columnist EJ Montini’s recent effort is a case in point. His column is titled, “Bloomberg is taking the heat, but Trump is the racist.”

Never mind that his premise is false or even that he knows it — having worked for the Hillary-endorsing, illegal alien invasion-supporting Arizona Republic since 1986, the concept of truth is too exotic to comprehend. Montini has been able to hang on through buyouts and wholesale firings of his co-workers because he is a willing sycophantic distorter and unconcealed liar, traits he has blatantly honed past retirement age.

Still the desperate, failing purveyor of falsehoods begs for readers with a giveaway. Outlandishly claiming:

“You can play a vital role in supporting local journalism that you and your community can trust. With a subscription, you can help our journalists hold those in power accountable,” by offering a “Presidents Day sale subscription — $1 for 3 months.”

A penny a paper is about what the far-left blather is worth. And those “journalists”?  They are mostly ASU Cronkite propagandized student interns, marinated in left-wing party line tripe working for a byline, lacking editors or an office.

This frantic deal comes from the shaky, homeless newspaper which recently acknowledged getting a whole lot factually incorrect, though its editorial policy and leftward skew didn’t make the embarrassingly long ‘Corrections and Clarifications’ list.


AZ 2nd Amendment rally at state capitol draws massive crowd

February 16, 2020

One place you can be sure AZ U.S. Senate candidate Mark Kelly didn’t show his face was at the Second Amendment rally at the state capitol Saturday. Far leftist, Soros-supported Kelly, who is running as a Democrat for a U.S. Senate seat occupied by Sen. Martha McSally, is a gun restrictionist, who with his wife, former AZ U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, founded organizations whose ultimate purpose is gun confiscation.

Many of the thousands of attendees at the event wore shirts emblazoned with the words, “Gun control is not about guns, it’s about control.”

Kelly, along with Giffords, runs the major gun control-focused group Giffords PAC,* which between its hybrid PAC and 501(c)(4) nonprofit Giffords,* spent nearly $7 million to aid Democrat congressional candidates, while targeting Republicans in 2018.

This Feb. 2019 SRAZ post,Mark Kelly, AZ gun hypocrite, announces for US Senate,” exposes Democrats and their gun hypocrisy. Breitbart News, following a tip, photographed Mark Kelly making personal gun purchases at a Tucson gun store.

The high citizen turnout at AZ’s 7th annual “Celebrate and Protect the Second Amendment rally was driven by concerns over gun control legislation introduced by Democrats this session intended to limit firearm sales and transfers, expand background checks and ban high capacity rifles. Read Senate Bill 1624.

Gun restrictionist Mark Kelly is challenging Arizona incumbent Republican Sen. McSally. A graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, she previously represented Arizona’s second congressional district for two terms in the House of Representatives. She served 26 years in the U.S. Air Force, retiring in 2010 as a full Colonel. As the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat and first to command a fighter squadron in combat in U.S. history, she respects the unique right we have as American citizens enshrined in the Second Amendment.

Arizonans who value their constitutional based rights understand the importance of this election.

Leftist NYT’s Krugman: Bernie “Isn’t a Socialist”

February 15, 2020

Media bias now embraces lying

If it seems as though there’s a new leftward-skewed report flying our way with each blink of an eye, it’s because the pre-election bombardment is tuned to fever pitch after the impeachment hoax failed. Count on it not to let up even after President Trump wins reelection. If anything, the desperate Democrat’s assault will intensify. 

We tune into Fox News programming and tap Breitbart and The Daily Caller with regularity, but some of the conservative sites that were in the forefront of paving the way might get forgotten in the overload. Media Research Center’s NewsBusters is always topical and presents in-depth investigations, documenting media bias. Brent Bozell is the Founder and President of the Media Research Center, having started it in 1987. Tim Graham, who wrote the article we’re directing you to today, is Executive Editor of NewsBusters and is the Media Research Center’s Director of Media Analysis — conducting thorough fact-checking.

As most conservatives are aware, The New York Times is a purveyor of radical leftist slop. Today we direct our readers to Tim Graham’s exposé: PANTS ON FIRE Paul Krugman Headline: ‘Bernie Sanders Isn’t a Socialist.’

Krugman, author of “Conscience of a Liberal,” supported Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid and has been a relentless critic of President Trump and his winning polices. He has no credibility when it comes to discerning whether Sanders “isn’t a Socialist.”

In his book, Krugman, blaming far left losses on Republicans, deceitfully wrote:

The changing politics of race made it possible for a revived conservative movement, whose ultimate goal was to reverse the achievements of the New Deal, to win national elections – even though it supported policies that favored the interests of a narrow elite over those of middle- and lower-income Americans.

Sanders,78, is a self-described Democratic Socialist, believing in Marxist-based collectivism, who runs as an Independent. He caucuses with the congressional Democrats, since that’s how his voice is heard and his votes are counted. He suffered a heart attack in October and doctors inserted two stents in one of Sanders’ blocked arteries.

Political extremist, abortion proponent and open borders supporter, Sanders and his wife honeymooned in the former Soviet Union. It’s time for them to visit Venezuela or Cuba to experience the “joys” of Socialism.

Most of us were taught at a young age that you’re judged by the company you keep. These are the political radicals who are supporting Bernie Sanders‘ 2020 presidential campaign.


Trump storms New Hampshire in advance of Dem primary

February 11, 2020

On the eve of today’s New Hampshire Democrat primary, President Donald Trump swooped into Manchester for another of his “Keep America Great” packed rallies (photos). Many of his thousands of supporters camped out overnight in the rain and snow to see him. Last year, he broke the attendance record at the SNHU Arena (which holds approximately 12,000). Yesterday’s unable to be accommodated, overflow crowd remained and enthusiastically watched the rally on large screens.

The loyal and extraordinary support Trump engenders was characterized on the front page of this morning’s edition of the seriously failing, Hillary-endorsing, Arizona Republic as his “victory-and-vengeance tour,” following his acquittal on bogus impeachment charges led by desperate congressional Democrats.

A must read in advance of today’s tabulation is,Bernie Owes Obama Big Time.” Barack Obama set the stage for the Vermont socialist’s rise to national prominence. But the Democrat’s Marxist coming-out party happened too soon for America.

Author Karin McQuillan is a clear-eyed observer of the political scene, as evidenced by this zinger: “The growing power of the hard Left within the Democratic Party’s ranks is not new. It is not the result of Trump derangement. It is the cause of Trump derangement.” McQuillan’s first career was as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, providing her with the insight she needs to make that ‘diagnosis.’

Polls opened Monday at midnight at Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, traditionally the first primary in the nation. Statewide vote totals will be reported here. Polls close today at 7:00 pm (ET).


Dire cost of “taxing the rich” even more

February 8, 2020

AZ Educrats ramp up new $1 Billion money grab

It’s trendy today to speak in terms of taxing the rich, making them pay their fair share. The problem is, they already do and then some. There are profound problems with the socialist agenda that rides astride “redistribution of wealth,” confiscating from those who play by the rules, educate themselves, take risks, and work long hours, to achieve their goals. There is a price to be paid, and if you’re not willing to pay it yourself, you shouldn’t resent those who are, because without them there would be no innovation or advancement. They are not the enemy, they are who we should aspire to emulate.

But Socialists, exemplified by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, running as Democrats for their party’s presidential nomination, are populating congress in growing numbers. They don’t even try to disguise their radical Socialist bond, despite the fact that the United States spend two generations fighting against the destructive system. They are smugly righteous about raising taxes on the “ultra wealthy,” making them “pay their fair share,” though wealthiest Americans pay disproportionately higher rates. In 2016, the top 1 percent of taxpayers accounted for more income taxes paid than the bottom 90 percent combined.

Economist Thomas Sowell previously wrote, “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty. The communist nations were a classic example, but by no means the only example.

In theory, confiscating the wealth of the more successful people ought to make the rest of the society more prosperous. But when the Soviet Union confiscated the wealth of successful farmers, food became scarce. As many people died of starvation under Stalin in the 1930s as died in Hitler’s Holocaust in the 1940s.

How can that be? It is not complicated. You can only confiscate the wealth [and income] that exists at a given moment. You cannot confiscate future wealth [or income] — and that future wealth [and income] is less likely to be produced [or earned] when people see that it is going to be confiscated.”

Arizona #REDsforEd educrats, who work part-time jobs, abandoned approximately 840,000 students statewide for nearly two weeks in 2018, when they went out on strike for a 20% pay increase, which they unconscionably received, are re-energizing their previously failed ballot initiative Invest In Education Act. Of course, the leftist Hillary-endorsing newspaper supports the ongoing and continually expanding $millions in taxation written into the initiative as “an investment we need to make,” ignoring the continual school bond and tax override elections. The latest fraud is another $1 Billion.

This is where the “underpaid” teachers choose to put their money.


Adrian Fontes: Leftist MC Recorder invites Dems to vote

February 4, 2020

Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes is supposed to represent all of the voters in Arizona’s most populous county. That’s ALL, as in Republicans and Independents as well as the Democrats who boosted the problematic Fontes into office by a single percentage point. The initial elections he oversaw were unmitigated disasters, featuring widespread problems, long lines and infuriated voters, many of whom were turned away and advised to go to other polling places. Fontes blamed the chaos on “outside contractors” he hired to replace knowledgeable employees.

On the recorder’s website he claims, “We continue to provide the citizens of Maricopa County the finest service possible. To ensure that we stay on the leading edge in our field we continually make changes and we encourage your participation.” Fontes’ deception is mind boggling as he boasts of the pride he takes in the many awards and recognitions “we” have received and that “we are considered by many to be the premier recording office in the country.”

 In using the majestic plural known as the “royal we,” Fontes must occasionally dress in drag, since Helen Purcell was initially elected county recorder in 1989 and served nearly four decades, until 2017. The majority of those awards were presented before Fontes ever strolled into the office. Purcell, who knows a thing or two about the duties of overseeing elections, has endorsed eminently qualified Republican Stephen Richer.

Far from an impartial overseer of elections, Fontes recently ran an ad in the local newspaper which most of our readers would miss due to the fact that so few Arizonans continue to subscribe. The ad, which contemptibly oozes blatant partisanship, features a cartoon “ballot” (His cap identifies him as such) wearing glasses, a grin and waving jovially. The bright yellow capitalized words slickly say, “HEY VOTERS! I’m Phil the Ballot (get it?). Did you know only registered Democrats can vote in the Democratic Presidential Preference Election on March 17th?  Let’s meet up at BEBallotREADY.vote.” The tag line is, “brought to you by” …featuring official replicas of the seals of the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office and Maricopa County, followed by a phone number promising “voice info,” in Spanish and English. Callers are provided detailed instructions regarding how to register to vote in the Democrat primary election.

Arizona is among several states that have cancelled their GOP presidential primaries or caucuses, since incumbent President Donald Trump has no viable challengers. The plan was initiated by the state parties, as has been the case in both parties when an incumbent president is running for reelection.

The actions are not unprecedented. As examples, Arizona Democrats skipped the  presidential primary in 2012, when Barack Obama was running for a second term They did the same in 1996 when Bill Clinton was running for reelection.

The question to ask is, “Would leftward skewed partisan Adrian Fontes run ads inviting Republicans to vote in the presidential primary if the circumstances were reversed?”  We’d bet the farm that day would never come. His sole concern is registering Democrats.


Why do Dems have an aversion to God?

February 2, 2020

Watch as Democrats delete God from congressional proceedings as witnesses are sworn in:

 

This is not new for them. Remember the chaos that erupted at the 2012 Democrat National Convention over the insertion of the word “God” or the recognition of Jerusalem into their platform? Seeing Red AZ covered the shameful episode then. Even those conducting the meeting were confounded as the boorish delegates loudly protested and booed.

 

Although our founding documents did not endorse a specific religion, they do acknowledge God. The two key founding documents in American history are the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The first explains why we exist as a nation. Not only does the Declaration mention God four times, most importantly, it says that our rights come from the Creator.

In President George Washington’s first proclamation in 1789, declaring a national day of Thanksgiving, he referenced God 16 times.

He obviously wasn’t a Democrat.
