AZ Republic’s odd placement choices, concealed info

February 1, 2020

Let’s see…which story should be given Page One prominence?

Bold Headline, above-the-fold accompanying a three-quarter page report —  including an oversize photo of an ASU student wearing a mouth and nose mask for protection against the coronavirus emanating from China: “It’s hard to prepare for an unknown, but the flu season has already provided helpful practice, state health officials say.” The article continues to an inside half page and a photo of another masked ASU student, riding a bicycle.

Bottom of the same front page: small font type: “27 accused of sex crimes.” It’s accompanied by a single sentence and a directive to page ‘3A’ (short-shrifted rest of the story). “More than two dozen people were arrested by Valley police in Operation Silent Predator, a crackdown on trafficking and sex crimes involving children.”

The arrested suspects, who were arranging sex acts with children, are described as between the ages of 21 and 69.  The child victims were 14-years-old and younger and were stalked online.

Of particular interest is the fact that twenty-seven Valley perverts were charged as sexual predators perpetrating crimes against children and the newspaper did not mention a single name. Could it be because Homeland Security was one of the investigating agencies, partnering with Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe, and the Chandler Police Departments along with the Arizona Attorney General’s Office? Seeing Red AZ easily located the names of the suspects:

They have been identified as Samuel Puma, 69; Patrick Mai, 65; Walter Lundy, 59; Franklin Omori, 57; Roy Vasquez, 55; Daryl McCraw, 53; Hector Pano, 48; Juan Flores, 40; Andrew Kasmar, 37; Richard Gonzalez, 37; Colten Jourdain, 35; Edward Mendoza, 33; Agustin Ibanez, 32; Kristopher Broom, 31; Ezra Reynolds, 31; Fabian Hernandez, 30; Jose Sandoval, 30; Bryan Carr, 30; Lawrence Ruiz, 29; Tommy Diaz, 28; Kevin Evangelista, 26; Dovonta Owens, 25; Nicholas Benhart, 23; Jesus Mendoza, 23; Terrick Ebron, 22; and Isaac Arce, 21.

Their photos can be found on various local television outlets, though not in the seriously failing no-news newspaper.

Count on this: If any of these arrested child predators are here illegally, the Arizona Republic will never report it.


Chandler Unified School Dist. defends radical educrat

January 30, 2020

Public school district emblematic of why charter schools are top rated

This report is so outrageous, it made national news with Breitbart News carrying the details,Arizona High School Teacher Accused of Associating Conservative Values with ‘Fascism

Radical left-wing indoctrination is alive and well in our taxpayer funded public schools.

A history teacher at Casteel High School in Queen Creek, Arizona, has been accused by students and parents of equating conservative values with fascism during a recent history class.

The unnamed female teacher emerges unscathed by the deceit and unconscionable historical revisionism she perpetrated by comparing Hitler to the modern-day Republican party.

The high school, which graduated its first class in 2019, allows this dishonest indoctrination to be propagandized to its students. Principal Jayson Phillips shows himself to be a weak administrator, giving a pass to the educrat.

U.S. News and World Report published its yearly list of top schools across the nation. Once again Arizona Charter Schools topped the list earning the Top Ten slots.

Arizona #REDSforEd public school teachers abandoned over 840,000 students statewide for nearly two weeks while following socialist Noah Karvelis, a 24-year-old unaccredited hip hop music teacher, as they went on strike in violation of their contractual agreements, demanding a 20% pay hike for their part-time jobs. They are now supporting a “tax the rich” socialist ballot scheme to receive ever more money for spewing radical indoctrination.

An important reminder: This is where the supposedly underpaid teachers choose to put their union dues money.* Be sure to scroll down to the ‘Party Split’ graph. 

Then take a moment to tune in to their longstanding agenda (brief video) clearly articulated as far back as 2009, that unequivocally spells out the views of the National Education Association regarding the children they are charged with educating. The words are spoken by Bob Chanin, the NEA legal counsel in a brief excerpt from his revealing retirement speech.

Nefarious ballot harvesting OK’d by 9th Circus Court

January 28, 2020

This reasonable law §16-1005 maintaining the integrity of voter’s ballots was passed by the Arizona legislature in 2016 and signed by Gov. Doug Ducey. The law, protecting against voter fraud, makes the practice of knowingly collecting voted or unvoted ballots from another person a Class 6 Felony.

Specific exemptions are written into the law, allowing family members, a person residing in the same household as the voter, caregivers, postal workers or elections officials to collect early ballots from a voter.

Calling voting “a key pillar of our democracy,” the governor noted this law will ensure a chain of custody between the voter and the ballot box. “We join 18 other states in this common sense approach to maintaining the integrity of our elections.” SRAZ has written about ballot harvesting previously, beginning in 2012.

Arizona’s law ensuring election integrity has now been reversed by the far-left, overly large and frequently overturned Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on the flimsiest and most insulting of reasons: That it negatively and disproportionately impacted minority or impoverished voters.

“Arizona’s policy of wholly discarding, rather than counting or partially counting, out-of-precinct ballots, and criminalization of the collection of another person’s ballot, have a discriminatory impact on American Indian, Hispanic, and African American voters in Arizona,” Judge William Fletcher, a Bill Clinton appointee, wrote.

The decision was reported in the Arizona Republic, which makes no attempt to impartially deliver the news, using these inflammatory words: “Republicans who control the legislature enacted the policy with the intent of suppressing turnout from voters of minority groups.”

The state will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, said Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, a defendant in the lawsuit along with the Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.

“It’s surprising the Ninth Circuit took the unusual step of overruling its own decision from 2018,” Brnovich said. “I have a duty to defend the law. Our office will appeal to the Supreme Court and continue to protect the integrity of our elections.”

The court’s ruling can be read here.

The judges on the en banc panel are:

Sidney R. Thomas, Chief Judge (appointed by Bill Clinton)

Diarmuid F.O’Scannlain (appointed by Ronald Reagan)

William A. Fletcher (appointed by Bill Clinton)

Marsha S. Berzon (appointed by Bill Clinton)

AZ supports Pres. Trump, despite biased newspaper report

January 27, 2020

The Daily Insult, known as the Arizona Republic in a previous incarnation, barely clings to life, with a sports section that is heftier than the news portion in actual content — excluding hearing aid and erectile dysfunction ads aimed at its remaining aged subscribers. The virtually non-existent Monday edition was introduced in 2008 by saying it was customized for readers on the busiest day of the week. The price has continued to increase as the newspaper has withered.

An informative report is Peter Cohan‘s,Reasons Why Gannett Stock Has Yet To Find A Bottom,” which appeared in Forbes.

SRAZ has frequently written about the emaciated local newspaper, the open borders, Hillary-endorsing, Periódico de la República de Arizona which has shrunken in physical size, staff and content, and is now reliant on ASU student interns and purchased content.

Sunday’s edition ran a lengthy “Viewpoints” piece titled, “How did Arizona become purple?” written by the man who has been committed to pouring blue dye on red Arizona, which is the sole reason the newspaper elevated him to guest columnist status. Once the executive director of the Arizona Republican Party, he is now a full-fledged turncoat registered as PND, Party Not Declared. He also changed the toxic name (his) of his company to one suggesting dignity.

In 2016 Arizona gave all 11 of its electoral votes to Donald Trump. As much as it rankles those still running the newspaper, he remains immensely popular, drawing massive crowds to his appearances — here and nationwide. Leftists are working double time to impeach him, but the American people, who have benefited from his policies, see through the charade. 

The Washington Examiner lists President Donald Trump’s 319 ‘results’ and promises kept in three years. The list follows an excellent report.


Ridiculous language distortions gain traction

January 26, 2020

…Begin with replacing the misused word “progressive” with the far more accurate,”repressive.”

Just weeks ago, we learned that Merriam-Webster declared ‘they’ its “2019 word of the year,” in a nod to gender neutrality and those who now consider themselves non-binary. Gender neutral, non-binary and transgender, words with which we had previously never had even a nodding acquaintance, have gained prominence in our celebrity-driven world. The compliant media follow like lapdogs and before long misused words dominate our language and are being described in detail and taught to our kids in school.

The dictionary company’s revelation preempted the American Psychological Association recognizing “they” as a singular third-person pronoun in its latest scholarly writing style guide. No kidding!

Language corruption and distorted meanings abound. Language, like sexuality, has lost its significance and has now veered off into the land of fluidity, where nothing means anything and venerable, known definitions have been co-opted.

Which brings us to the misuse of the word “progressive” when describing radical leftists. Progressive is a word that is embraced by those who rejected the word liberal in favor of sounding forward-thinking and cutting-edge.  What compounds the egregious trickery is that conservatives, likely in a foolish quest to sound contemporary, routinely use it. The correct usage appears in the first paragraph of this article, titledBeware of phony conservatives.”

The dying Arizona Republic newspaper’s Sunday edition exemplifies the devaluation of definitions. In a three column report by wordsmith Daniel Gonzalez titled, “What we know about the latest caravan,” he used the words caravan and migrants interchangeably nearly four dozen times as he described Central Americans attempting passage through Mexico intending to invade the United States. He sought out a similarly agendized east coast Latina associate professor, who claims the timing is coordinated “to draw attention away from Trump’s impeachment trial and bolster support among his base during a presidential election year.”

This bonding to a flawed agenda that alienates educated readers signals the death knell for the failing newspaper. 

A much better description for leftists is “regressive,” which is exactly what they are. According to Merriam-Webster, regressive is in the bottom 40% in lookup popularityLet’s give it a rightful boost.


Impeachment integral to Dem’s longtime plans

January 25, 2020

Schiff, Pelosi, Nadler, Schumer and their congressional cronies have no reticence about wreaking havoc on America

In Sept. 2018, Democrat Chuck Schumer let the cat out of the bag as he clearly expressed the Dem end game of impeachment, part of their long term strategy since President Donald Trump was first elected in Nov. 2016.

When asked about specifics, Schumer didn’t hesitate in responding, “The sooner the better,” Schumer replied, speaking through a bullhorn to amplify his answer. 

Peter Hasson, editor at  the Daily Caller,  takes us back to June 2018, reminding Republicans that the sham we are now witnessing has been integral to the Democrat scheme to take down Republican President Donald Trump. The non-politician businessman captured a wide swath of American voters from longtime conservatives to working class democrats as well as those who simply were disgusted with, and unable to cast their ballots for practiced liar Hillary Clinton.

Consider this past a remedial reminder. Let it serve you as the key element underlying your political interactions and your vote in the November 3, 2020 election. President Trump has been under constant assault by despondent Democrats and their colluding media since his first day in office. No other U.S. President has been so relentlessly and viciously attacked. The reason?  He’s doing all he can to benefit Americans while keeping his campaign promises. Those are concepts the Democrats are unable to comprehend.


Impeachment farce: Actual motive exposed

January 23, 2020

There’s no question conservatives are political devotees, spending more time than the average citizen tuned in to news and analysis. It’s integral to who we are.

A national survey conducted last month underscores the distrust of the impeachment proceedings, with more than half agreeing it is an unprecedented Democrat driven abuse of power against President Trump that got underway Wednesday. Fox News channel carried it to the exclusion of regular network programming, and many tuned out after a short time watching Adam Schiff’s disingenuously righteous hysteria.

Congressional job approval ratings have plummeted to record lows as the Democrat-led House conspires solely on the partisan impeachment scheme rather than focusing on the job they were elected to do.

To fill in the proceedings for those who actually earn a living or others who found the constant level of feigned high dudgeon unwatchable, we bring you the best synopsis we could find detailing the actual reason this travesty is underway.

David Marcus, writing for the Federalist, titles his well written analysis, “Adam Schiff Is Already Claiming The Illegitimacy Of A Trump Reelection.”

We highly recommend it.
