News report indicative of nothing but anti-Trump bias

August 25, 2019

As avid news followers and supporters of President Trump, this zinger of a headline topping an article that appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle was nothing short of attention-grabbing:

Reported Trump fan convicted in California of voter fraud, identity theft.”

The bizarre contrivance is proof positive that fake news is alive and well. In reading the report, it’s clear that it had nothing to do with the President of the United States. Seven words in the final sentence were given prominence to contort the report of a criminal illegal alien — slickly mischaracterized as an “undocumented resident” — charged with identity theft and voter fraud.

Student intern Alejandro Serrano, posing as a reporter, also wrote that charged perpetrator Gustavo Araujo Lerma was “convicted by a federal grand jury.”

Alejandro, who is doing a stint at the SF Chronicle, following a 10-week summer internship at the Chicago Tribune, needs a remedial course in basic legal proceedings if this is to be his beat. A grand jury has no power to convict anyone of a crime. After hearing evidence presented by prosecutors they can only issue an indictment to charge an individual with a crime. Trials do not take place before a grand jury.

And the illegal charged with the crimes? Alejandro Serrano writes, “according to one report, Lerma testified he was a fan of President Trump.”

According to the obviously leftist novice Alejandro, that sounds like an even more egregious crime than identify theft and voter fraud.

SF Gate, the online sister site of the Chronicle provided this editorial insight,The decline of news,” back in 2007. “The situation at the Chronicle has only worsened in the intervening years, resulting in editor-less interns inadequately filling the positions of seasoned journalists. Neil Henry wrote: “Reportedly losing an estimated $1 million a week, the paper’s owner, the Hearst Corp., concluded it had no recourse but to trim costs by laying off reporters, editors and other skilled professionals, or offering buyouts to the most seasoned journalists in order to induce them to leave. The cuts reportedly will amount to a quarter of The Chronicle’s editorial staff.”

Henry’s editorial is worth your time. The evaluation mirrors the slashing of jobs resulting in of these dire circumstances at the recently sold Arizona Republic.

Deity McCain worship continues at AZ Republic

August 24, 2019

Cindy McCain proposes Arizonans develop amnesia and “Celebrate Sen. John McCain’s life of civility…”

The Hillary-endorsing, viciously anti-Trump Arizona Republic newspaper has a tough time with death, even hiding local obituaries inside the “Sports” section. Its own imminent demise was given a reprieve when parent company Gannett was recently bought by GateHouse, in a time stalling measure before the declining newsosaur finally turns its toes skyward. The infusion of oxygen allows the incredibly shrinking, far-left newspaper to continue its grief-laden tributes to John McCain. The foul-mouthed Republican pretender died August 25, 2018 at his Cornville, AZ compound.

These headlines, (more articles are sure to follow), some including large photos, all appear in the latest online and hard copy editions:

A year after his death, John McCain still looms large (takes up the entire Sunday edition front page and jump pages)

  Cindy McCain: ‘Our country is not well right now’

Separately, Cindy McCain sent out this email, headlined, “Celebrating Senator John McCain’s life of civility and service.” Whitewashed are his vulgar tirades and renown spews of vile cursing and threats. John McCain was known for many things — civility was not one of them.

Dear Friends –

This Sunday, August 25, our family will celebrate the life of my husband, Senator John McCain. It has been a year since he passed. Like many of you, I miss his voice of reason, sense of humor and commitment to our country.

John never backed down from a fight and wasn’t shy about speaking his mind. However, he always maintained the utmost respect for his affectionately dubbed “sparring partners.” It is with this spirit of civil discourse and bi-partisan collaboration in mind that my family and I plan to mark the anniversary of John’s passing by engaging in #ActsOfCivility. John’s commitment to civility and serving causes greater than ourselves was unwavering and something we must not abandon without him.

You can help our family honor John by engaging in an act of civility of your own sometime between Sunday, August 25, and Friday, August 30, and posting about it on your favorite social media platform using #ActsOfCivility. Your act can be as simple as an act of compassion or service or something more meaningful like opening a new dialogue with a competitor or family member with whom you regularly disagree. You can follow our campaign on Twitter or Instagram at @CindyMcCain, @McCainJack and @McCainInstitute. To help spread the word, please like or re-post the content on these channels beginning August 21. And for some fun, check out our Snapchat filter celebrating John and send a snap to your friends on August 25.

Finally, encourage your friends, family and members of your community to participate as well. We can accomplish great things from a place of common ground.

Warmly,


Shazam! AZ Regents gift illegals college tuition break & Update featuring Ducey response

August 23, 2019

Chicanery on display as ABOR manipulate tuition, disregard law

The Arizona Board of Regents is an assemblage boasting an august moniker and eight-year terms — longer than any elected official — including the President of the United States.

Working sub-rosa, they take their grandiose title seriously, using it to magically reconfigure illegals into “non-residents.”

With a bit of “Abracadabra” dust sprinkled over our tax dollars, the Regents just pulled a new rabbit out of its collective hat. They unanimously voted Thursday that the three Arizona universities (ASU, UofA and NAU) will charge illegal alien students a non-resident tuition rate that is less expensive than the out-of-state rate they previously were expected to pay.

Notice the coy language used to describe the illegals:

“A student who graduated from an Arizona high school, but who is not otherwise eligible for resident tuition status….”

Even Merlin would have trouble figuring that jargon out, but it’s perfectly coherent to the mystical Regents.

Bottom line? What the Regents voted to approve gives significant tuition breaks to illegal aliens. Your Arizona-born niece who was raised in California but will be attending ASU will have to pay considerably more than an illegal invader.

It also flies in the face of Proposition 300, overwhelmingly passed by Arizona citizens in 2006 — by a vote of 71.4% to 28.6% — and clearly defines, “a state university or community college student who is not a United States citizen and who does not otherwise possess lawful immigration status in this country is not entitled to waivers, grants or any other financial assistance paid in whole or part with state funds.”

Previous to the Regents’ action, illegal aliens attending our state schools had to pay about $30,000, the out-of-state tuition rate. Now with the Regent’s sleight of hand chicanery, they will only pay about half that amount, approximately $16,000.  That’s only $5,000 more than the in-state, American citizen student base rate of $11,000.

Who do you think makes up the difference? 

SRAZ’s April 2019 post,Scandal rocks AZ State University, Pres. Michael Crow slides,” provides additional information about ASU President Michael Crow, the nation’s highest paid public university president. Although not mentioned by the generous Regents, he has been an unwavering advocate for elevating illegals over Arizona’s citizen students.

Waiting a week to address this preposterous gifting of our tax dollars to fund tuition discounts to illegal aliens, Arizona’s lame duck Gov. Doug Ducey emerges to applaud the Regent’s generosity. Channeling his political mentor, John McCain, Ducey warmly states, “Somebody who graduates from an Arizona high school is an Arizona kid.”

Remember that when he seeks higher office.


Pres. Trump to challenge birthright citizenship  

August 22, 2019

In an unprecedented move, the sham of “birth tourism” is also being targeted

What do Barbados, Cuba, Dominica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Fiji, Guatemala, Honduras, Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago have in common with the United States? Not much, except they are among the 30 countries that offer birthright citizenship to anyone born to parents who are in those counties, legally or not.  Exceptions are foreign diplomats and wartime enemies.

Citizens of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras are those who have been caravanning by the hundreds of thousands, illegally invading the United States, which brings disrepute to their laissez-faire policies. No one wants in and their citizens want out.

President Trump’s announced on Tuesday that he is preparing an executive order to end birthright citizenship. His action will face legal challenges, but he stands on solid ground.

These nations repealed Birthright Citizenship in recent years:  Australia (2007), New Zealand (2005), Ireland (2005), France (1993), India (1987), Malta (1989), United Kingdom (1983), and Portugal (1981). Numbers USA has the complete list.

Here in the United States our policy regarding citizenship is found in the Fourteenth Amendment, enacted following the Civil War in 1868. Its honorable intent was to provide citizenship to freed African-born slaves and their American-born children.

Hans A. von Spakovsky a Senior Legal Fellow at the Heritage Foundation and a former Justice Department official addresses the issue in this clarifying article,Birthright Citizenship — A Fundamental Misunderstanding of the 14th Amendment.”

He writes that American Indians and their children did not become citizens until Congress passed the Indian Citizenship Act of 1924, clarifying that citizenship by birth was not automatically conferred. Integral to the Fourteen Amendment are the key words, “a person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof.” Those in the United states illegally do not meet that threshold, since they are subject to the laws of their own counties.

President Trump, noting that congress has failed to act, has also announced that he is taking action to close the loopholes fueling the crisis on our border, Read his complete statement.

The following statistics are included in his fact sheet:

The number of family unit aliens apprehended at the southern border has skyrocketed in recent years.

Family unit apprehensions have spiked from just 14,855 in fiscal year (FY) 2013 to 432,838 so far this FY – an increase of more than 2,800 percent.

More than 430,000 family unit aliens have been apprehended at the southern border so far in FY 2019 – a more than 300 percent jump from all of last FY.

There have been more family unit aliens apprehended at the southern border in the last three months – 184,000 – than all of last FY.

Not only is President Trump addressing birthright citizenship, he has begun unprecedented crackdowns on “birth tourism,” where thousands of affluent pregnant foreign women travel to the United States to give birth ensuring American citizenship for their children. They pay $multi-thousands to brokers who arrange their travel documents, accommodations, entertainment, shopping sprees and hospital stays.

SRAZ has addressed the widespread practice for nearly a decade:

2010: Anchor babies and “birth tourism” making the news.”

2012:Birth tourism alive and well.”

2013:  Illegal immigration: The missing components.”

2018:  Pres. Trump takes aim at Birthright Citizenship.”

 


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.


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.
