Dimwit Pelosi: To curb flow of illegals,“Mow the grass!”

February 23, 2018

Border fence is unnecessary

Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Peloisi has never been regarded as a brain trust. Brain rust is a more fitting description for the far left, disconnected from reality (video montage) California Congresswoman who will turn 78 next month. She’s exhibited her appalling lack of mental acuity on numerous occasions over the years.

When President Trump instituted massive tax cuts and economic reforms that put significant money in the pockets of American workers, multimillionaire Pelosi hypocritically called it “crumbs“ saying, “God never intended one group of people to live in superfluous inordinate wealth while others live in abject deadening poverty,” citing what she said was a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King. Pelosi is routinely listed as one of the wealthiest members of congress, is reportedly worth approximately $100 million, according to this account in the Washington Examiner.

During her recent political stop in Phoenix, charlatan Pelosi outdid herself at a town hall by exposing her lack of basic knowledge about the border where Arizona abuts Mexico. The desert isn’t a park with lush green grass, though she suggests that mowing the grass would be a better solution to curb the invasion of illegals than building a wall — since they would no longer be able to hide in the tall grass.

Arizonans have heard such absurdities before. When Republicrat Christine Jones was a candidate for Arizona governor, she cluelessly spoke of Mexicans swimming across the Rio Grande to enter our state. The problem for Jones is the fact that the Rio Grande is not in Arizona.

Facts can be such pesky things for ignorant politicians.

Traumatized teens marching against guns target wrong culprit

February 20, 2018

Blame and threaten Pres. Trump, NRA rather than gun free zones

Statistics point to the fact that it is guns in the hands of the wrong people — psychotic shooters in gun free zones — who are the actual culprits.

This National Review article,A Look at the Facts on Gun-Free Zones,” was published over two years ago, prior to the carnage perpetrated by an expelled student charged with  killing at least 17 classmates and wounding more than a dozen others at his former high school in Parkland, Florida. The LA Times provides an overview of the shooter.

The nation’s sympathies are with the survivors of the horrific bloodbath and the families of those who were mowed down by the manic assailant, who mysteriously slipped through the hands of law enforcement, though the FBI was pre-warned about him in January. Students, encouraged by anti-Second Amendment activists, have called on their peers around the country to demand action. The National School Walkout on March 14 and the March for Our Lives on March 24 are scheduled. With no understanding of the Second Amendment, they are calling for its repeal as they blame the NRA and President Trump for the actions of a former classmate many described as odd and troubled. That would be analogous to banning cars for highway deaths or bread knives for fatal stabbings.

“We’re marching because it’s not just schools. It’s movie theaters, it’s concerts, it’s nightclubs,” student Alex Wind when appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“This kind of stuff can’t just happen. You know, we are marching for our lives, we’re marching for the 17 lives we lost. And we’re marching for our children’s lives and our children’s children and their children.”

“These people who are being funded by the NRA are not going to be allowed to remain in office when midterm elections roll around,” student Emma Gonzalez declared. “They’re going to be voted out of office. Incumbency rates are going to drop.”

Mute when 14 mass shootings occurred during Barack Obama‘s presidency, they obviously have been well coached to blame President Trump. Student David Hogg, called the president “disgusting” for questioning a lack of action by Democrats when they controlled both houses of Congress and the White House.

Ignoring Obama, whose gun-controlled hometown of Chicago rivals a battlefield, Hogg stated, “You are in that exact position right now, and you want to look back on our history and blame the Democrats? That’s disgusting, You’re the President. You’re supposed to bring this nation together, not divide us. How dare you!  Children are dying, and their blood is on your hands because of that. Please take action. Stop going on vacation in Mar-a-Lago. Take action. Work with Congress.”

What they don’t understand is that “gun free zones” are tantamount to issuing an invitation to would-be assassins, alerting them to the fact that there’s no security.

There is no question that our culture has made violence an entertainment staple for decades, from violence in cartoons watched by toddlers to video games favored by preteens and their older siblings, willingly purchased by their obliging parents who slough off the mind numbing effects. Movies and song lyrics contribute to desensitization to violence.

The Second Amendment was placed immediately after the First enshrining freedom of speech for a reason. Our Founders regarded gun ownership as that important.  Not only for hunting, but to provide a means of defense against an over-zealous government.


AZ Republic becomes an orphan as both mommies split

February 16, 2018

As if anyone needed further evidence that the local newspaper is on borrowed time, the latest report is that Nicole Carroll, a senior newsroom executive at the Arizona Republic for over a decade, is leaving to take the post of Editor-in-Chief of USATODAY, “the nation’s largest circulation newspaper,’ according to the Republic’s own front page coverage of the abandonment.

The reason behind the large circulation claim is the garish, magazine-like publication is given away “free” at hotels across the USA. Or so we thought. The Gannett publication actually reaps mega millions yearly with the distribution, by colluding with hotels to tack the charges onto your bill.

Just a couple of months ago, Arizona State University bragged it had snagged the Arizona Republic’s Publisher Mi-Ai Parrish. She was willing to ditch the newspaper for what is reported to be a much lower salary to take the post of Professor in Media Innovation and Leadership at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Think of that as inculcating leftwingism to the J students.

Parrish left her post as president and publisher of Republic Media, which operates the Arizona Republic, azcentral.com and La Voz as part of the USA Today Network — to join the Cronkite School on Jan. 1. She will “teach, write, speak and collaborate on how to preserve and grow a robust free press in the digital age.”  With those abilities, Parrish should have stayed at the newspaper and tried to keep it afloat —- although she was probably all too aware of the futility of that ginormous task.

Firings, buy-outs of long term employees and general mayhem have been the order of the day at the increasingly anorexic newspaper. Cronkite students, using colloquialisms and writing in Charles Schultz’ Snoopy “It was a dark and stormy night” style, are ineffectively filling the gaps.

The Hillary-endorsing newspaper is a contemptible farce, mercifully fading fast. It has shrunken in actual size but uses oversized — oftentimes, half page photos or illustrations — to take up space. Content consists in large part of pre-written pap that bears no resemblance to news. Entertainment and dining are given prominence. More than occasionally the same article will appear a day apart, or even in the same issue, with a few pages separating them, earning it our nickname of The Daily Regurgitation. We also refer to it as The Periódico de la República de Arizona for its unswerving open borders stance and desire to gift American citizenship to those who disregard our laws and sovereignty.

Most egregious of all is its propensity to routinely insult the aging demographic readers, who overwhelming voted for President Trump, a man the newspaper despises. Disreputable RINOs McCain and Flake, both on their way out, are its poster “boys” of Republicanism.

ASU’s journalism students have become the unseasoned glue that holds the disheveled mess together, though their commitment to the First Amendment is questionable.  In 2009, after inviting Sheriff Joe Arpaio to participate in a forum, the students in the audience began loudly chanting Bohemian Rhapsody, drowning him out as he attempted to respond.

Do those in charge at the Republic actually expect anyone to take seriously the views of the skewed editorial board, the toady columnists and rude student reporters who disrespect the First Amendment?

Thursday’s edition of the Wall Street Journal carried a cogent editorial, “Peter Thiel’s Warning to the Valley.” The Valley in question was Silicon Valley but the Valley of the Sun would be an apt substitute. The thrust is contained in these few words: “Hostility to half of America isn’t good business—or politics.”


Why higher Ed produces brainwashed liberals

February 10, 2018

American parents want to ensure a solid future for their kids and a degree from a prestigious college is seen as the key component to prosperity.

But consider what the university setting inspires in a field where a majority of professors identify as liberal. A request to grant extra credit to students who attend an upcoming guest lecture by Fox News commentator Katie Pavlich at Kennesaw State University on the subject of “Fake News” and liberal media bias has drawn the ire of one professor.

In an email exchange with the event’s student organizer, Business Law and Ethics Professor Neil Wilkinson agreed to give his 225 students extra credit if they attend, — in accordance with school policy — but also encouraged them to go after Pavlich like a “mad dog in a meat store.”

The event, slated for March 7, is hosted by Young Americans for Freedom and aims to “celebrate women’s month by hearing from speaker Katie Pavlich as she discusses the ways in which media is being used as leftist propaganda,” This is taboo subject, and one worthy of inciting violence against Pavlich.

This survey is dated by four years. Given increasing campus trend towards liberalism, chances are today’s numbers are even more skewed to the left. In 1990, according to survey data by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at UCLA, 42 percent of professors identified as “liberal” or “far-left.” By 2014, that number had jumped to 60 percent.  In colleges across the country, far-left professors now dominate disciplines such as English literature, sociology, and history. Few have anything positive to say about capitalism, the Constitution or the United States in general.

This could explain why college age Americans supported Socialist Bernie Sanders for U.S. President even though he was old enough to be their grandfathers and with whom they had little in common, though the lure of free tuition was irresistible.  It’s impossible tot be motivated to cherish, protect or defend a nation in which its citizens are steeped in moral relativism and  there is an appalling lack of understanding of America’s superior system of liberty and freedom based governance.

In a 2016 poll conducted by Harvard, 51 percent of Americans between 18 and 29 rejected capitalism, and a third said they supported socialism, a system based in Marxism, which older Americans understand is destructive to individual rights.  A Pew poll in 2011 showed that the same age bracket had more positive views of socialism than capitalism. Young people who are taught the USA is a flawed nation and believe, as Barack Obama does, in the failed policies of redistributing wealth will eagerly toss our freedoms to the wind and have no desire to protect the rights contained in our founding documents.

Barry Bluestone, a Northeastern University professor was caught on tape telling his students he “wouldn’t mind seeing President Trump dead.” If he had said that about Obama, he’d be charged with inciting  murder. The double standard is indefensible, but the lack of education in America’s educational institutions is far worse.


Fearing the flu, McCain stays in Cornville

February 9, 2018

We finally have an answer regarding John McCain’s month’s long absence from Washington, D.C.  According to his refined daughter Meghan, it has nothing to do with what his Mayo doctors described as Stage 4 glioblastoma, “a particularly aggressive” form of brain cancer, diagnosed in July. In fact, she tells Stephen Colbert he’s made acrazy, amazing recovery.’

Meghan says it’s the fear of contracting the flu that is keeping the 81-year-old away from his senate office, claiming he continues to stay actively involved in events and sends out numerous tweets from his compound in Cornville, AZ. Recently that location has been described as the more upscale Sedona, though having a ranch in rural, adjoining Cornville is nothing to turn up one’s nose at.  He is also a co-sponsor of yet another of his attempts to grant citizenship to illegals. This time he’s ditched his ‘Gang of Eight’ liberals and Republicrats and is partnering with Delaware Democrat Chris Coons on his signature issue of putting nearly 2 million illegals above American citizens and increasing the Democrat voting base, ultimately rendering Republicans to Whig status.

The reason to oppose this latest amnesty scheme have not varied from this 2013 list put out by FAIR.— the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

Lies easily spew from McCain’s mouth. Few will forget this con job when he was in campaign mode. Jeff Flake engaged in the same flagrant deceit when elections rolled around. Dropping his senate reelection due to abysmally low polling numbers, Flake now spends his time auditioning for a job on one of the alphabet networks, who will happily hire a GOP defector.

The fact is, it is the staff of Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) who are acting in his stead, turning to Twitter (like the President he so reviles) to announce the latest machinations to push through what they dishonestly refer to as a “bi-partisan immigration compromise.” The seriously ill McCain is not staying out of D.C. due to fear of the flu.  This is another trickery being peddled by his mostly left leaning ideologues providing themselves cover and paychecks in his auto-pilot office.


Absent McCain partners with another Dem on amnesty

February 6, 2018

McASS hits the fence

The staff of Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) turn to Twitter (like the President he so reviles) to announce the latest effort to push through what they refer to as a “bi-partisan immigration compromise.”

This is what comes out of an office on auto-pilot, run by mostly left-leaning ideologues:

One of the last times John McCain was seen on the banks of the Potomac was July 28, 2017, for the senate vote to repeal Obamacare, which was delayed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell until ASS could participate. He entered the chamber, and seeking maximum effect, dramatically thrust his thumb down in a manner emulating Roman emperor Caligula, denying life to pleading gladiators in the Coliseum.  What was known as the “skinny repeal” was dealt a devastating blow, and failed with his stunning, decisive vote, in which he joined the unified Democrats and two other traitorous RINOs Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins.

The duplicitous McCain campaigned on building “the danged fence,” (video) that he now refuses to include in his last ditch amnesty scheme, that grants U.S. citizenship to nearly 2 million DACA illegals who claim they were brought here as children by their invading parents. There is no means of verifying their declarations and the upper age includes those 36 years of age and younger. As we’ve previously written, those repeatedly described as “kids” could well include “30-something” grandparents.

McCain began his efforts to increase the Democrat voting bloc by partnering with Ted Kennedy. This has remained his signature issue over decades. McCain and Jon Kyl  pushed for amnesty. He and Jeff Flake formed the Gang of 8, another amnesty scheme that undermined our national security. That effort included committed leftists Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin and squish Republicrats. Brietbart News names them all and provides a backdrop to this charade.

 The ultimate effect would be to permanently place liberals in power without securing the border or doing anything of significance to halt illegal immigration. Now the ailing and absent McCain is magically partnering with Delaware Democrat Chris Coons on yet another amnesty scheme, minus funding for the wall he supported as a ‘say-anything-to-win’ candidate.  Trust McCain and his surrogate staffers, now in charge of his senate office, at your own peril.


Rob Reiner: No wonder Archie Bunker called him “Meathead”

February 4, 2018

At his worst, Mike Stivic was never this screwy

Despite the fact that 75 percent of Americans approved of President Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday, Rob Reiner appeared on MSNBC to rant that “intelligent people” like the leftist network’s hardcore liberals Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews were forced to listen to the “racist….and pathological liar.”

Reiner followed that boorish tirade with, “I feel bad for you, intelligent people like you and Rachel and Brian Williams and Nicolle Wallace and Lawrence O’Donnell and Gene Robinson, you all have to sit there and talk about this guy as if he’s a president.”

“…..as if he’s a president“?

Reiner never carried on like this about Barack Obama, who actually fit his description to a “T.” Racists come in all colors. As President of the United States, Obama invited “Black Lives Matter”  thugs, who advocated killing police officers, to the White House. Obama lied like a champ because he was so practiced at deception. Here he is lying about Obamacare and granting amnesty to DACA illegals.

MRC’s NewsBusters features the loony liberal video. Donald Trump’s unexpected trouncing of Hillary Clinton was more than these folks have been able to handle.
