Pipe dream of AZ “blue wave” hyped in NC

August 14, 2018

Associated Press’ liberal skew on AZ politics in NC news

In a review of news reports, it was surprising to find that distant Raleigh, North Carolina, has an interest In Arizona’s political scene — or more specifically the attempt to ignite the leftist vote here.  Headlined, “Democrats ramp up political push to win in GOP-heavy Arizona,” the report gives a voice to Democrat desperation, reeling in the face of the election of President Donald Trump.

The skewed news account attempts to present a hopeful outlook — from a liberal perspective — albeit 2,000 miles away.

SRAZ exposed AP’s Stylebook attempts to alter the English language in 2013 in our post,Winston Smith: Alive and well at Associated Press.” At that time we compared the AP’s revisions to George Orwell’s acclaimed book, “1984.”

Nothing has changed at AP.

Resurrecting John McShadegg?

August 13, 2018

Dissecting the disconnect

In this fawning interview by Arizona Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Glenn Hamer, former Arizona Congressman John Shadegg is talking like a Trump supporter, which should raise the antenna on anyone who pays attention to the state’s political scene.

The Chamber, representing business interests that prefer cheap labor to American workers, has never advocated for a secure border. Illegal labor profiteers have a bottom line agenda that isn’t in sync with conservative voters.

The dichotomy is stark, since President Trump campaigned and won on building a border wall.  Unlike John McCain who strolled the border and talked, with tongue firmly planted in his cheek, about completingthe danged fenceto get elected, Trump meant it. And it wasn’t a “danged fence.”  It’s a secure wall. Jeff Flake, pivoted into the U.S. Senate by McCain and then retiring Jon Kyl, played the same pre-election game. Voters, so tired of his deception that they handed him his head in his hands with an 18% approval rating after a single senate term, caused him to withdraw from his reelection bid.

Deceitful McCain, it should be remembered, immediately after the votes were counted, embarked with his now-lame duck underling Jeff Flake, on constructing not a “fence” but rather the amnesty-bent Gang of Eight, colluding with Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Robert Menendez, Michael Bennet —  all open border leftists and a couple of other squish Republicrats,  Lindsey Grahamnesty and Marco Rubio —  in a concerted effort to push amnesty for illegal invaders, yet again. Fortunately this attempt also failed.

While in Congress, Shadegg went on record with the New York Times, 3000 miles from his home congressional district, boorishly insulting Arizonans who desired border security as “xenophobic and intolerant.

It’s generational. John Shadegg’s son, Stephen, worked for McCain and is now managing the senate campaign of the duplicitous Martha McSally, (revealing video) often referred to on this site as Sally McCain.

And Hamer? Prior to joining the Arizona Chamber of Commerce, the former Kyl aide was executive director of the Arizona Republican Party. Immediately after taking the Chamber’s top job, he opportunistically endorsed liberal Democrat Janet Napolitano, then running for governor against solid conservative, Len Munsil.

Unhinged newspapers unite in conspiracy against Pres. Trump

August 11, 2018

Contending news outlets are not purveyors of fake news, despite evidence to the contrary, the Boston Globe is attempting to assemble other leftist newspapers to form a united pact taking editorial aim at President Trump’s characterization of the biased press. The Daily Caller headlined its coverage, Boston Globe Calls For All Media Outlets To Publish Anti-Trump Editorials Next Week.

As of Friday, about 70 publications committed to running editorials denouncing Trump’s honest assessment of the liberally skewed press — often referring to their content as “fake news.”  The coordinated attacks are set to launch August 16.

“Our words will differ. But at least we can agree that such attacks are alarming,” stated Marjorie Pritchard, the Boston Globe’s deputy managing editorial page editor.

MediaBias/Fact Check rates the Boston Globe, with a left-of-center bias. We’re unfamiliar with what this site considers to be out-of-bounds propagandizing, or if they would even recognize their own vulnerabilities. Since they post their methodology, we’ll give our readers the option to decide.

While claiming to be free of bias and above promoting deception, none of the newspapers touched on the fact that they overwhelmingly supported Hillary* in the 2016 election.

The Boston Globe, now with its back up over President Trump’s exposure of overwhelming unfair, frequently dishonest and biased coverage, endorsed Hillary in 2016 and Obama in 2012. 

Liberal bias, anyone?

Where are the reports of President Trump’s major achievements?

Citing numerous examples, the RNC released the winners of the past year’s Fake News Awards.

Unaware of their relevancy in this context over four hundred years later, Shakespeare best characterized the media’s shrill outburst with these words, spoken by Queen Gertrude in Hamlet, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”

AZ Republic: Where agenda trumps fact

August 9, 2018

Deciphering Republicese

The headline blasts, “Donald Trump’s border wall could cost much more than estimated, new report says.”

A few observations when reading the local newspaper, employing a wide range of sufferers of TDS or “Trump Derangement Syndrome“:

  1.  Yes, it’s a long headline. It could have been shorter and more respectful if the word “Donald” was eliminated and replaced with the abbreviated, “Pres.”

      2.  Usage of the word “could”: Could is vague and indefinite, as in the case of may, might, maybe and possibly. If the wall “could” cost much more than estimated, it “could” also cost much less. It depends on the perspective that is intended to be conveyed. The Arizona Republic makes no bones about its messaging, rife with an open-border agenda, hence the usage of the wobbly word, “could.”

     3.  Most egregious error of all: It’s not, “Donald Trump’s border wall.” It’s ours! Americans across this nation voted for candidate Donald Trump. Among the top reasons was the promised construction of a “border wall,” since border security is national security. This principle was reiterated during a speech delivered by President Trump at the Reagan Library in December 2017.

The article was written by Rafael Carranza, described as “covering the U.S.-Mexico border for The Arizona Republic, and contributing to La Voz Arizona.” La Voz is the Spanish language edition. Both papers specialize in highlighting families separated and/or reunited at the southern border, never suggesting that their illegal entry into the U.S. or sending their young children on the arduous journey with strangers claiming to be their parents put them in indefensible predicaments of their own making.

The recent arrest of an illegal in Texas, highlights the problem.  A young girl was sent by her mother with a man, who falsely told authorities he was her father. He had, in fact, repeatedly raped her during the journey.

Would Carranza have gotten this particular assignment if his surname had been O‘Connor or Wong, or does identity politics override all other considerations at the Hillary-endorsing, open borders, far left newspaper?


Martha Mc…McCain outed by Republic’s Montini

August 6, 2018

Martha McSally: Another deceptive McCain protégé

SRAZ has been referring to Martha McSally as Sally McCain since her entry into Arizona’s U.S. Senate race. It appears the Arizona Republic’s emaciated, far left columnist E. J. Montini has been reading our posts.

Don’t mistake his outing her as the latest version of John McCain’s Primary Election flipping and General Election flopping on border issues, indicates he’s seen the light and has gone conservative.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

Montini, an unrepentant liberal, is hoping whatever he does will help boost radical extremist Kyrsten Sinema, newly revamped and posing as an “independent problem solver,” into Arizona’s open U.S. Senate seat.

Longtime readers will remember when now-lame duck Jeff Flake, followed his McMentor’s same deceptive path to office in 2011. Flake’s double talk threw Republic then-editorialist Doug MacEachern into such a tailspin he declared Flake to be a mere “politician” — no longer a “statesman.”

In 2010 campaign mode, McCain strolled the border with then-Pinal County Sheriff Babeu, who after hearing McCain’s feigned declaration of commitment tocomplete the danged fence, solemnly stated, “Senator, you’re one of us”—  leading many to wonder what the actual inference was.

In a recent Glamour magazine interview McCain’s Trump-hating daughter, Meghan, was quoted as saying of her seriously ill father, “I’m scared of America without him.”

Americans who believe border security is national security, have been equally frightened of her father’s decades long promotion of amnesty for illegal alien invaders. 

We were stunned by his involvement in the now discredited “dossier” intended to take down President Trump, which he hand-delivered to then-FBI Director James Comey, while acting in concert with Hillary Clinton‘s campaign.

It was shocking to see a sitting U.S. Senator posing with Syrian rebels who became the leaders of ISIS — referring to them as “freedom fighters.”  But without Joe Lieberman to point out the differences, Dad was clearly at a disadvantage. 

McCain and McSally are interchangeable.

Vote principled conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate.  It’s time for a real change.


Snorting Koch: An open border hallucination

August 2, 2018

If you do an online search of the Cato Institute, you’ll find it listed as an “American libertarian think tank with a moderate right wing bias” or a “conservative think tank”  — confirming that far-left predisposed Google can be not only wrong, but very wrong.

The Washington, D.C. based organization was originally launched in 1973 as the Charles Koch Foundation by billionaire Charles Koch and two associates. By 1976, the name of the Koch funded entity was changed to the Cato Institute. It supports legalization of illicit drugs claiming doing so would generate $106.7 billion in annual budgetary gains and advocates for the abolishment of ICE.

“Conservative” or “right-wing,” it is not, unless you use John McCain, Jeff Flake and Ted Kennedy as templates.

John Binder, writing for Breitbart News headlines his shocking article, “Koch-Backed CATO Institute: ‘Time for the U.S. to Have Open Borders.’ The report is based on this USA Today op-ed by Cato’s Director of Economic Studies, Jeffrey Miron, who says the U.S. “has nothing to fear, and much to gain, from open borders,” adding that Americans should “forget” about building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to stop the illegal invasion of our country.

Cato’s Miron opines:

“President Donald Trump’s recent tweets against open borders come as no surprise. Indeed, even fervent immigration advocates worry that open borders would lower the wages of low-skilled natives, erode national security, and overburden the social safety net. Trump doubled down, tweeting that he would be “willing to ‘shut down’ government” unless Congress approves funding for a border wall with Mexico.

Trump, however, has it exactly backwards: The solution to America’s immigration problems is open borders, under which the United States imposes no immigration restrictions at all. If the U.S. adopts this policy, the benefits will far outweigh the costs.”

The United States is a sovereign nation, rightfully entitled to a secure border and protection for its citizens. In a post-September 11, 2001 world, the issue of opening our country to potential terrorists is never addressed.

Translating the liberal-speak: The United States needs to become an unrestrained, permanent repository of uneducated and unwilling to assimilate Third-Worlder invaders to benefit Americans. We need to fund them with our generous social programs, provide them with health care, educate their kids to the determent of our own, and eagerly accept their criminality. We should ignore the fact that this act of national destruction will ensure a massive expansion of the Democrat/Socialist party that is certain to have permanent negative impacts on our country — the obvious goal of the Cato Institute and the Koch Brothers.  They are radical George Soros clones in drag.

The left-wing, Hillary-endorsing  Arizona Republic newspaper plays this same deceptive game in today’s edition. In a front page article titled, “Migrant reforms floated in House,” it refers to “bi-partisan” supporters of another massive omnibus spending bill funding ‘dreamers’ and other illegals, backed by the American immigration Council an illegal alien support group opposing what it calls, “senseless deportations.” The newspaper blandly describes it as a “non-profit D.C. advocacy group that studies immigration.” Also identified as backing the measure is the “immigration policy analyst” at the “Libertarian Cato Institute.”

The intentional deception jumps off the page.


Trump adopts policies of Lincoln, rather than Reagan

July 29, 2018

It’s time to re-Lincolnize the GOP

From time to time we post an exceptional column under the heading, “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.”

Today we bring you a gem. “The Lincoln Model: How Trump Can Shut Down the Democratic Plantation.” Posted on Townhall, it Is excerpted from Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, “Death of a Nation.” His movie with the same title opens nationwide Friday, August 3.

We invite you to read this remarkable commentary on President Donald Trump, who more closely conforms to President Abraham Lincoln than to President Ronald Reagan on vital issues including immigration and tariffs.

D’Souza’s revealing expose on Democrats’ lies is illuminating. He writes,

“For too long conservatives and Republicans have allowed big lies to take over the culture and, in some cases, their minds. This progressive cultural hegemony has polluted our education system and our media with fake narratives and fake history. It has also created a kind of Stockholm syndrome among conservative intellectuals. “In our hearts we know we’re wrong.” But we’re not wrong. We’ve been lied to. It’s time for us to stop apologizing—we have nothing to apologize for—and go on the offensive. Truth is our deadliest weapon, if we will deploy it.”

And while we‘re on the topic of President Trump, the Washington Examiner headlines it’s report,Media blackout: Trump’s 60-point accomplishment list of ‘American Greatness,’” detailing the lack of media coverage of the achievements the Trump administration has racked up, both domestically and internationally, in its first 500 days. The list is bullet-pointed for ease in reading.

Today is a two-for-one-day. Enjoy!
