“Wilding” ain’t news, taking down Trump is

April 25, 2017

Arizona Republic’s pathetic* attempt to reverse its death spiral

The Arizona Republic newspaper has long been known as the Periódico de la República de Arizona for its deep commitment to open borders and bonding to amnesty for the illegals invading Arizona — and fanning out to the rest of the U.S. It is also known as the Repugnant and the Repulsive, names given to the disseminator of skewed news, long before we ever heard of fake news. The Daily Regurgitation has become our favorite AKA, since identical stories and accompanying photos appear on consecutive days or even in the same issue. The exact report and photos on the Westward Ho hotel renovations ran Sunday and Monday.

Looking for coverage of the estimated 40 – 60 teen marauders who commandeered a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) train Saturday night, robbing and beating passengers — leaving some with face and head injuries? You won’t find it here. The newspaper specializes in disseminating AP feed and USAToday leftward lurches. There is no op-ed page. Opposing views are not welcome.

Instead you’ll be treated to endless bashing of President Trump, routinely and appallingly referred to or depicted in editorial cartoons as Hitler — trivializing the systematic and gruesome murderer of millions. Though the mischaracterization is reprehensible, it’s what they do.

The shocking BART case is eerily similar to what became known as the “wilding” case involving a gang of teens who savagely brutalized a 28-year-old investment banker jogging through Central Park in 1989.  She was left unrecognizable and comatose by her attackers, who assaulted at least nine people during their rampage.

Though they distort the news the newspaper’s execs are savvy enough to understand harsh realities. Its readership is mainly retirees. They won’t be around forever. Insulting the intelligence of readers causes many of them to ditch their subscriptions such as when the newspaper endorsed scandal-plagued liberal Hillary Clinton for president.

Despite the gloom and doom reports from the Arizona Repugnant, the actual barometer of President Trump is American confidence in his policies. They are evidenced in the fact that the stock market continues to soar during his first hundred days, breaking records. This is today’ report.

Hard-copy issues aren’t cost effective. Even the foolish attempts at coolness fall flat.  Case in point was Monday’s main front page headline, “Valley has 99 problems, but triple digits ain’t one.” This accompanied a one paragraph follow-up. With literacy in short supply, it’s a fair bet the newspaper is no longer used as a teaching tool in classrooms.

* According to the Cambridge Dictionary, the word “pathetic“ is defined as “unsuccessful, useless or worthless.“ That definition fit’s the state’s largest newspaper to a “T.”


Pedestrian deaths soar; AZ nation’s 3rd worst

April 15, 2017

“Distracted drivers” or pedestrians’ own risky behavior to blame?

According to this report released by the Governors (no apostrophe) Highway Safety Association, pedestrian deaths are soaring and Arizona ranked number three in the nation on the 2016 list of fatalities. (Table 6, Page 14 of the report.)   Colorful infographics are even included.

The blame, it says, lies with distracted drivers. “Enforcement is crucial to changing driver behavior,“ the report declares. It was authored by transportation consultant Richard Retting who works for Sam Schwartz Transportation Consultants .The east coast duo have found their niche.

It’s a good bet that most drivers in the Valley and Phoenix metro area would take exception to that misguided characterization blaming them for increased fatalities. Start paying attention to marked crosswalks. Keen observers are well aware that crosswalks are routinely avoided by pedestrians. With children in tow, parents will run across one lane of traffic and then stand in the median waiting for a break in oncoming cars to charge across the opposite lane. This dangerous behavior is customary, by no means an occasional anomaly.

Others will saunter across the street a dozen or more feet outside the crosswalk as if the marked lines providing pedestrian safety were for someone else. Lines are not for the cool. They are for obedient dolts.

Socioeconomic factors also play a role. When Phoenix area summertime temperatures are routinely in the triple digits, people are not walking for pleasure. They are walking because they have no choice. Could it be resentment of their circumstances makes the idea of staying within the crosswalks less appealing?

According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, from 2004 to 2014, there were an average of 22 confirmed wrong-way crashes on freeways each year, and eight fatalities on average each year from such calamities. How many of those drivers are unable to read the signs?

Bicyclists have their own lanes in most cities these days. Life should be good for the greenies. But they no longer walk their bikes across busy streets and frequently switch into auto lanes using driver‘s arm signals to show they are not pedaling lesser modes of transportation. Helmets provide minimal protection. When they are in the driver’s blind spot, tragedy can result.

Motorcyclists, repeatedly changing lanes while speeding through traffic are another risky group, posing hazards to pedestrians and other vehicles on the roadways.

The report did concede that 82% of deaths occurred outside of intersections. That fact alone confirms that “distracted drivers” are not the culprits to pedestrians who thumb their noses at the painted lines in the street, put there to ensure their safety.

Look for the Governors Highway Safety Association to keep churning out these half-baked reports — between attending conferences in Seattle, Washington; Nashville, Tennessee; and Grand Rapids, Michigan. The 2017 conference is slated for Louisville, Kentucky. They might think of using that confab to put the onus for pedestrian deaths where it most frequently belongs — with the pedestrians.


Skewed news & rethinking the desirability of a college education

April 10, 2017

Aggressor professor morphs into victim, claims death threats lodged against him by fascists (political conservatives)

Fresno State University Professor Lars Maischak, who teaches — of all things — American History, a topic he appears not to comprehend, has been in the news recently.

We thought the Fresno Bee might have an update on this pathetic excuse for a lecturer. Instead, the newspaper headlines it’s article Breitbart News singles out Fresno State professor over tweet on Trump, describing Professor Maischak who advocated on his twitter account, “to save American democracy, Trump must hang. The sooner and the higher, the better.”

Maischak identifies himself as “teaching American History with a German accent at Fresno State.” He has a predilection for the words fascist and fascism which he uses liberally throughout his tweets. After he was outed, he used weak excuses to back away from his calls inciting murder of the President of the United States.

The Bee refers to Maischak as a “target,” rather than an insurrectionist. It repeatedly characterizes Breitbart News as “right-wing.”

The fault, you see, lies with Breitbart for calling attention to this anti-American ignoramus. Such is the view of the radicals inhabiting academia and the media today.

On the university’s website alongside its name are the words, “Discover, Diversity, Distinction.”  There was a time, not so long ago, when unity rather than diversity was celebrated. Now hyphenated Americans with questionable commitment to the USA, merit praise.

With Joseph L. Castro at the school’s helm and former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano in charge of the entire California university system, it’s not difficult to see that the liberal skew is carefully cultivated and maintained. Castro’s absurd statement following Maischak’s treasonous comments said, “Statements made on his (Maischak‘s)  personal social media accounts are his alone and are not endorsed by nor reflect the position of the University.”

No chastisement.  No talk of firing or even a suspension.  Just a tacit signal that more of the same is OK with Castro.

The University President’s Commission on Human Relations and Equity provides an insight of what matters most in this liberal, liberal arts school. As an example, under a heading  KEY TERMS is Intersectionality: It’s described as “a theory and methodology developed in feminist studies, intersectionality (Crenshaw, 1989) reveals and explains the ways in which identity categories, such as gender, race, sexual orientation, ability and other axes (do they mean axis’) of identity, intersect to produce multiple and varied lived experiences and inequalities.  Intersectionality helps us understand how our multidimensional racialized, gendered, and sexualized social identities shape our experiences of power and oppression.”

Got that? Want to pay thousands to make sure your kids do?


Back to the future with Squaw Peak

April 8, 2017

Phoenix residents will have no trouble remembering the renaming of the majestic mid town focal point that is a hiker’s haven, an artist’s delight and casts a long purple shadow over parts of the Valley. Squaw Peak abruptly fell into disfavor with the PC crowd who suddenly declared the name derogatory to female native Americans.

From there it grew.  In 2003 Janet Napolitano, Arizona’s far left governor, hung her fedora on it. Not only did the favored name have to go, but it was being replaced with one honoring Army Pfc.  Lori Piestewa, a Hopi tribal member killed in the Iraq War — in an attempt to eliminate once and for all objections to the newly out of favor name. Napolitano later abandoned the governorship to join the Obama regime. In 2015, Obama followed the same path renaming Alaska’s Mount McKinley honoring assassinated Republican President McKinley to Denali — one used by Alaskan tribes.

The latest mountain rumble in Phoenix is not actually about Lori Piestewa, but the young mother’s life, cut too short, provided the spin for Democrats to use for their own political benefit. Liberals are adept at creating dramas and wringing the last drops of empathy from them in an effort to configure themselves as compassionate.

Napolitano’s thuggish renaming of the mountain was nothing short of ham handed.  Now following in her tracks is Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, who is ready to move on from his current political perch.  What he’s eyeing is following his good friend Napolitano to the governor’s office. A clever dude, he has opened an exploratory campaign for Secretary of State, frequently a direct route to the ninth floor of the executive tower. In past years Secretaries of State Wes Bolin, Rose Mofford, Jane Hull and Jan Brewer accessed that route to become governor.

Stanton is now attempting to override the homeowners in the Squaw Peak neighborhood who want to keep the unique name as their address. There have been outcries from the residents who have called public meetings, signed petitions and spoken before the city council to let their views be known.

In response, Stanton has ordered new signage erected directing hikers to Piestewa Peak.

The mayor lives on a street named Frier. Squaw Peak residents should petition the city to change it to something less offensive to vegetarians, vegans and members of PETA.. Tofu Drive has a nice, non-offensive ring to it.


Susan Rice: Dealing in deception — again

April 5, 2017

Sen. James Lankford, (R-OK) and U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-NY) each members of their respective intelligence committees have expressed concerns about revelations regarding pre-election surveillance by the Obama administration of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.  The spying, which has received scant coverage in the mainstream media, was initially disclosed by President Trump and mocked by Obama operatives and their colluders in the press.

Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, is at the heart of the scrutiny.

Sen. Langford takes the allegations seriously, saying, “The accusation is that people in the Obama administration were using their offices to get access to political information. They may have been using classified documents to release names and target individuals. That is not legal and these are serious accusations. We hope Susan Rice will meet with us.”

Congressman King agreed, stating that a thorough investigation is needed. “If these accusations are true, it rises to a level of a very high scandal because it is such an abuse of privacy. It violates the law and it undermines the presidency,“ King said.

Delusional Susan Rice, Obama’s  national security adviser must think she’s still on his payroll. Few will forget her deceptive talking points (video) as she made the rounds of Sunday morning network news shows following the 2012 attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya.. Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed — not by supposed protesters upset over a video depicting Mohammad, as she claimed — but by terrorists.

Circa News exposes the facts regarding the computer logs that former President Obama’s team left behind in the White House indicating Susan Rice accessed numerous intelligence reports during Obama’s last seven months in office that contained National Security Agency intercepts involving Donald Trump and his associates.

Intelligence sources said the logs discovered by National Security Council staff suggested Rice’s interest in the NSA materials, some of which included unmasked Americans’ identities, appeared to begin last July around the time Trump secured the GOP nomination and accelerated after Trump’s election in November and launched a transition that continued through January.

Andrew McCarthy, writing for National Review points out, “Her interest was not in national security but to advance the political interests of the Democratic party,” calling Susan Rice’s White House unmasking “an abuse of power” and “Watergate-style scandal.” McCarthy, a former chief federal prosecutor, reminds his readers “the thing to bear in mind is that the White House does not do investigations — not criminal investigations, not intelligence investigations.”

Obama’s White House honed its skills in cover-ups.


Refurbishing of RINO Flake begins

March 31, 2017

Jeff Flake’s liberal image: The facts speak for themselves

Jeff Flake is running for reelection in 2018, but first he needs to figure a way to infect Arizona Republicans with pre-election amnesia. We need to forget his repeated declaration that he would not vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. In fact, he haughtily declared Trump “can’t and shouldn’t win.  Flake’s positions have left him with weak support, that even his often inappropriate grin can’t undo.

Now the AZGOP Daily Update, a creation of GOP state chair Jonathan Lines — billing itself as “The Only Official Newsletter of the Arizona Republican Party!” (Italics and exclamation point theirs) — which many regard as a slam at the popular Republican Briefs —- exhibits not only a chronic case of memory loss, but an acceptance of Flake’s marginal Republicanism.

Know this: There is not an iota of difference between Flake and McCain. They both relentlessly push amnesty for illegals, and maintained close relationships with then-President Barack Obama. Flake has colluded with liberals on gun controlMcCain advised Obama on forging his legacy. Flake met with Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s Supreme Court pick and actually opined that it was time to start thinking about confirming him.

The AZGOP Daily Update has taken up the whitewash, posturing with this redundant headline, “McCain and Flake Look To Help Law Enforcement Against Criminal Illegal Aliens,” obviously forgetting that ALL illegals are criminals — entering our country by stealth. Imagine that a group broke into your home while you were at work, helped themselves to everything you’ve worked to obtain— demanded you educate their kids and provide them health care and other benefits. When you returned home they wanted your car keys to pick up some friends to join the festivities. That’s what we’re dealing with as a nation.

Arizona’s devious senate duo tout their introduction of a bill “to continue the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) providing reimbursements for state, local, and tribal governments to offset the costs of incarceration for certain undocumented criminal aliens.”  Such a swindle should be renamed to form the acronym SCAM, which more honestly describes the conveniently timed bill.

Jeff Flake is a Libertarian who initially ran as a Republican to get elected.  He’s definitely not a conservative. His progressively close ties with Democrats are only scuttled when elections roll around.

And octogenarian John McCain? His amnesia is indistinguishable from senility (video). An economic wizard, he’s pushing for the elimination of dollar bills, replacing them with dollar equivalent coins claiming such a move will save nearly $14 billion in taxpayer money and generate at least $4.4 billion. He doesn’t explain how.  He’s already forgotten the dollar coins that were costly flops. One named for Lewis and Clark’s Shoshone Indian guide Sacagawea, was minted in 2000 and its predecessor the Susan B. Anthony coin, minted from 1979 to 1981, were impracticable and unpopularexactly like Jeff Flake, as reported by .AZ Family Channel 3 TV.


Joe Arpaio has been there for us: Let’s return the favor

March 30, 2017

AZ Republic endorsed Soros-funded candidates Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Paul Penzone & Diego Rodriguez

There’s never enough bile for the insatiable Arizona Republic to hurl.  After daily spews of rancor aimed at Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the career lawman who was elected to an unprecedented 6 four-year terms, lost to Paul Penzone, a George Soros funded batterer.  Democrat Penzone refers to illegal aliens as “guests” — not of the jails he now oversees, but of Maricopa County.  Soros, a multi-billionaire Socialist and open borders devotee, spent over $2 million to defeat Arpaio.

Arpaio gets hammered by the daily for legal costs he incurred while doing the job he was elected to do. He is currently scheduled for an April 4 trial in Federal Court, charged with criminal contempt stemming from accusations of violating judicial orders against profiling Hispanics, a charge he refutes.  Arpaio’s mounting legal fees are now his personal responsibility.

Consider making a donation to Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s legal defense fund. He has been there for the citizens of Maricopa County doing the job we elected him to do for 24 years. It’s time to return the favor.

The end game for the extremist left is to see the 84-year-old former sheriff in jail.  Joe Arpaio, the son of Italian legal immigrants was appropriately born on Flag Day, June 14. He is a patriot who served in the military, as a police officer and worked for the federal government in the Drug Enforcement Administration serving in diverse locals such as Turkey and Mexico City. Eventually Arpaio headed the Arizona DEA office prior to running for sheriff.

Soros’ entry into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s race is by no means a stand alone aberration. His Safety and Justice national PAC and Maricopa Strong PAC are part of a  syndicate with long tentacles reaching into law enforcement races, including county (district) attorneys, in numerous states, Arizona, Florida, Illinois, New Mexico and Texas, among them. Soros funded unknown Democrat Diego Rodriguez challenging Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. Soros is funneling multi-millions into the expansion of Europe’s “refugee” crisis, declaringnational borders are the obstacle.”

Like his associates and benefactors of his largess John McCain, Hillary Clinton, Paul Penzone and Diego Rodriguez, Soros is an open borders agent, who refers to illegal aliens as “migrants.” That’s why they and their advocates get his money and Sheriff Joe Arpaio was slated for removal.

We’ve been fortunate to have a man of Arpaio’s caliber heading up the Sheriff’s Office and working to keep Arizona citizens safe. Show your appreciation by helping to defray his legal expenses.
