Drag Queen Story Hour: Libraries dedicated to corruption of our kids

August 19, 2019

Perversion being taught as the new normal to America’s children

Remember when libraries were havens for learning and study? In school we learned the Dewey Decimal System of cataloging, to read for pleasure and to expand our base of knowledge. Libraries, whether city owned or housed in our schools, provided a window to the world.

Today that window reeks of lunacy and is steeped in perversion. The American Library Association (ALA) through its Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) division, including the Intellectual Freedom Committee, promotes “continuing education programs” for children. The ALA provides guidelines on promoting this depraved agenda.

This American Library Association link and quote is today’s new reality:

Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions…”

That paragraph is an example from the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) self identified as “a network of more than 4,000 children’s and youth librarians, children’s literature experts, publishers, education and library school faculty members, and other adults committed to improving and ensuring the future of the nation through exemplary library service to children.”

Interested in bringing Drag Queen Story Time to your library? At its annual convention, ALSC committee members “received tips for optimizing success from library pioneers who have already done it. We also had the chance to meet a Drag Queen who talked about the value of offering this program, including fostering empathy, tolerance, creativity, imagination and fun.”

This video features very young children being indoctrinated by a man dressed as a woman, teaching them about “gender fluidity.” The children, not more than toddlers, come away from the indoctrination thinking that the story was about “being nice to other people.”

Parents and grandparents must pay attention. This is not the world in which we grew up. Leftism carries a disturbed agenda that includes more than radical politics.

Gov. Ducey rewards Kate McGee for turning LD 28 blue

August 18, 2019

To call this invitation to a toney fundraising reception at the Phoenix Country Club preposterous would be the height of understatement. Gov. Doug Ducey is listed as the “Honored Guest.”

The no-attendance-price specified “Save the Date”notice states individual donors are limited to $5,200 and couples can only donate $10,400. Those are top limits, but sends a clear message pikers are not who LD 28 candidate Kate Brophy McGee hopes to attract.

There’s a back story to this swank soiree that needs to be told. State Senator Kate Brophy McGee was so busy attempting to manipulate the 2018 election in Legislative District 28 that she barely squeaked back into the senate, winning by a razor-thin margin of 50.1% over a newcomer Democrat who captured 49.9% — separating them by only 267 votes. This was beyond shocking in the formerly longtime Republican stronghold where decades once passed without a single Democrat being elected.

This near loss was not a fluke. Brophy McGee was the recipient of Republican wrath for pulling strings to influence the election in an effort to bring her RINOcrat buddy Kathy Petsas on-board for one of the two House seats.  Petsas — who targeted conservatives and aided Democrats as far back as 2012 — lost.

McGee’s 2018 machinations were responsible for two Democrats winning both district House seats while bumping highly qualified Republican incumbent Maria Syms, the sole pro-life candidate. Syms’ stellar career includes having served as an Assistant Attorney General, Assistant U.S. Attorney, Paradise Valley Town Councilwoman, and a State Representative. She has a proven track record advocating for education, law enforcement, public safety and border security.

During that election Brophy McGee, described by the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic as a “moderate,” actively courted Democrats, declaring  her gratitude for their endorsements. Ducey, in a major miscalculation, endorsed Brophy McGee and Petsas, even recording a robocall urging Republicans to support Petsas.

Now the Democrat unionist teacher who almost routed Brophy McGee is emboldened and running again — hosting a Saturday night kickoff event. Despite being outspent by almost two-to-one, Leftist Christine Porter Marsh came within spitting distance of Brophy McGee. The Dems are banking on turning the entire district blue. With the two House seats now in the left’s column and scheming Brophy McGee in the Senate, Conservatives think it already is.  If Republican Ducey is supporting McGee out of fear of losing Legislative District 28 entirely, he needs to put some conditions on his endorsement. It’s unlikely that he has.


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.


Aging small fry used against Bill Montgomery’s Supreme Court appt

August 13, 2019

There’s a new, albeit pathetic arrow, in the quiver of the leftist newspaper’s relentless campaign to scuttle Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery’s appointment to the Arizona Supreme Court. Since Montgomery made the short list, the partisan war against him has revved into high gear.

Gov. Doug Ducey has approximately 6 weeks to name the replacement to the seat of recently retired state Supreme Court Justice John Pelander.

Republican Montgomery was initially elected to lead the prosecutor’s office in the nation’s fourth most populous county in 2010, bringing a résumé of impressive credentials. A West Point graduate, decorated Gulf War veteran, former deputy county attorney and a professional prosecutor, he has dedicated his personal and professional life to serving others.

Though Montgomery’s credentials makes others pale in comparison, he has attracted a distinctly marginal detractor described in the newspaper’s Page One headline as a “son.” For a man in his 60s that’s more of a put-down than what he’s maliciously trying to serve to Montgomery. The “son” is the grandpa-aged child of former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. A RINO apple who didn’t fall far from his maternal tree — Sandra O’Connor reveled in being the swing vote frequently siding with the high court’s Democrats — Scott  thinks Montgomery is “too political” to be an effective Arizona Supreme Court Justice — an absurdity on it’s face.

Prior to Scott’s mother being appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, she also had a “political career.” Sandra O’Connor campaigned and was elected to the Arizona state senate, and later (prior to the current system of judicial selection) campaigned, ran and won a seat on the Maricopa County Superior Court as a Republican. But she was sufficiently left-leaning enough for liberal Democrat Bruce Babbitt, that the then-governor appointed her to the Arizona Court of Appeals in 1979. That fact alone should have given President Reagan pause.

Unfortunately, she was able to con President Reagan who nominated her as the first woman on the U.S. Supreme Court, where she delighted in being the swing vote, regularly aligning with Democrats. Reagan knew the O’Connor’s as friends of his Arizona in-laws.

In 2012, O’Connor’s son was the appropriately distrusted GOP Legislative District 28 chairman. At the time SRAZ wrote,Dist. 28 (formerly 11) recertifies its RINO status Update: O’Connor responds.”

Venomous column signals bent of Republic’s new ownership 

August 11, 2019

The steady decline of the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic appears to have exacerbated with its recent acquisition by Gatehouse. The newspaper was actually founded in 1890 as the Arizona Republican, a name it kept for nearly half a century. Later, the then-conservative newspaper flourished under the ownership of Eugene and Nina Pulliam, changing its direction after their deaths.

The best indication of the course being taken is the massive photo of an elephant’s backside atop this headline: “I leave GOP as it turns its back on what it stood for.”

The “Your Turn guest column,” a shifty vehicle for securing free editorials, is written by a Mesa immigration lawyer with the incongruous name of Yasser Sanchez. A dichotomy of complexities, he’s also a graduate of BYU.

As our astute readers have likely guessed, President Donald Trump is at the core of Sanchez’ complaints. Among Sanchez’ litany of criticisms is what he refers to by the left’s favored contrived term of “nativism.” “Nationalism,” a reliable indicator of love of country and patriotism is also the recipient of his ire. According to Sanchez, such feelings are pejoratives.

The lawyer needs to revisit our nation’s founding documents. Included in his litany of things that “sicken him” are the freedoms delineated in the Second Amendment. He is also “repulsed” by President Trump.

Sanchez, who says he came to the United States as a child with his parents doesn’t clarify if they entered legally, but he misuses the termundocumented immigrantswhen describing illegal aliens, the legally correct, precise term used by the U.S. Supreme Court.  The high court has decided numerous cases involving federal immigration law using “illegal alien” — as Hans von Spakovsky, Senior Legal Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, capably points out in this brief column.

Sanchez also has an aversion to the term “invasion,” though it would be interesting to know what he calls hundreds of thousands of people who illegally breach our sovereign border on their way to accessing American taxpayer funded benefits while flipping off border agents.

As pointed out in this Media Research Center’s now older though still accurate report,The Liberal Media: Every Poll Shows Journalists Are More Liberal than the American Public — And the Public Knows It.”

The policy of insulting its few remaining readers that brought Gannett and the industry to it’s knees, is obviously the path the that will be followed by the newspaper’s new ownership.

If you still subscribe, save your money. The insults will keep coming.  Why fund them?


Why stabbing fatalities fly under the media radar

August 9, 2019

The recent wave of killings of innocents by knife wielding criminals has garnered scant coverage by the left-wing, agendized news media. In the past couple of days, vicious stabbing fatalities have increased without grabbing national headlines or being exploited by Democrat politicians.

Zachary Castaneda, a 33-year-old convicted felon and known gang member — described by the Garden Grove, California police chief as “full of anger” motivated by “robbery, hate, homicide,” — went on a two-hour, two-handed stabbing and robbery rampage in Southern California. He randomly killed four people and wounded two others using “some sort of machete knives.”  Law enforcement officials say changes in state law led to Castaneda being released from prison earlier than he previously would have been. In 2011 California’s Democrat controlled legislature, passed Assembly Bill 109, approved by Democrat Gov. Jerry Brown. The aim was to reduce prison populations via machinations.

The police chief noted the suspect and all his victims were Hispanic.

This clearly doesn’t play into the “racist” narrative that has irrationally been hung around President Trump’s neck by scheming leftists.

Neither does the stabbing fatality that took place in New York as William Rivas, 39, fatally stabbed his wife, Carmen Santiago multiple times in the back at a nail salon where she worked. Shocked witnesses filmed part of the horrific, bloody attack on their phones.

Hispanic killers don’t fit the left’s hypocritical playbook. Neither are knifes and machetes included in Second Amendment protections that radical leftists want to abolish.  There is no equivalent of the NRA protecting long blades.
