Biden exemplifies Dem desperation

September 4, 2019

With the third round of Dem debates just around the corner — Sept. 12, 2019 — and the list of participants constricting to 10 qualifiers, doddering Joe Biden still leads in the latest Real Clear Politics aggregated polls.

Today, SRAZ brings our readers a premium recap, titled,The Gaffable Joe Biden.” We highly recommend this concise and cogent review of the best the Dems have to offer.

Written by R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., the founder and editor in chief of The American Spectator, it is spot-on and entertaining, while clearly illustrating the desperation of the Democrats, whose announced candidates keep dropping like flies.

The highly infectious malady known as Trump Derangement Syndrome, is analyzed by clinical psychiatrist Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., M.D., who explains the irrational distortions that drive the increasingly radical left and the dire consequences of their agenda.

Flawed ballot Props pass, relying on low voter turnout, trickery

August 28, 2019

Trickery was also a major factor in the passage of Prop. 105, the measure to end the expansion of the $multi-billion light rail boondoggle. Voters who wanted to end the costly nightmare and designate money to repairing our roads and expanding bus service, had to vote “yes” — when their intent was to halt the expansion

Make no mistake. There is a method to the madness of the City of Phoenix holding elections in late August. (View unofficial election results). While those who can, head out of town to avoid the triple digit temperatures before school starts, city workers from police and firefighters to garbage men show up. 

In all, they are represented by five unions:

Laborers’ International Union of North America Local 777 representing nearly 1,000 landscapers, solid-waste equipment operators and street-maintenance workers.

American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 2384 representing approximately 1,600 mechanics, electricians, skilled workers, aviation staff and water-services employees.

American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 2960 representing over 2,000 office employees, including secretaries, clerks, 9-1-1 operators, administrative aides and building inspectors.

Phoenix Law Enforcement Association (PLEA) representing approximately 2,500 sworn police officers.

United Phoenix Fire Fighters Association represents nearly 1,600 firefighters.

All of the unions support spending expansions. Even PLEA dutifully sent out leftist city council woman Laura Pastor’s request to inform its members how to vote on ballot Propositions 105 and 106. Blue Phoenix is controlled by a Democrat Mayor and eight city council members — only two of whom, Sal DiCiccio and Vice Mayor Jim Waring — are reliably Republican. Thelda Williams routinely votes with the majority. The biggest affront is they all run under the city imposed guise of “non-partisan,” plunging voters even deeper in the dark.

In 1982 the election system was changed, forcing city council members who previously ran at-large and worked together for the betterment of the city, to representing specific, increasingly ethnically controlled districts, that further divide us.


Educrats reveal full-blown Socialist creds

August 27, 2019

These are the people influencing American students

Unionist teachers are the ones who left pupils in the lurch, abandoning more than 840,000 Arizona students for over a week in 2018 as they protested for 20% pay increases for their part-time jobs. It was not by happenstance were led on their escapade by a 24-year-old, self-described Socialist, uncredentialed hip-hop music teacher.

Recently, the Chicago Tribune reported on a delegation of Chicago teachers who traveled to Socialist-led Venezuela in solidarity with the United Socialist Party government of Nicolas Maduro. The New York Post also regarded this lunacy as newsworthy. Breitbart News gave it prominence. The leftist Arizona Republic didn’t regard it as worthy of coverage. 

The fact that the citizens of Venezuela are enduring devastating hardships resulting from a hyperinflationary economic collapse is of no consequence to these teachers, who funded their trips by begging on a Go Fund Me page.

The harsh realities of Socialism describes the unimaginable conditions the people in the oil rich nation are enduring under the repressive regime.

The brainless Chicago teachers traveled to the ravaged South American nation seeking “inspiration,” while bashing the U.S. government and heaping praise on the repressive Marxist boot on the collective neck of Venezuelans.

These particular teachers are Chicago residents, but their counterparts teach in Arizona and every other state across our nation. They overtly influence American students from kindergarten through college.

The Washington Times reports on a study showing Democrat professors at leading U.S. colleges outnumber Republicans 10 to I. This is the result:

 

 


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.
