No news about arrested local Jihadist in AZ Republic

December 24, 2016

Lack of information exposes the falsehood of adage “No news is good news”

The local newspaper isn’t giving this any ink, but Pamela Geller reports ISIS is in Phoenix and plotting to attack a midnight mass and Tucson Jewish community center. Also on Derrick Thompson’s attack list found by officers during a search of the apartment he shared with his wife and young child, were a military recruiting center and fitness location. Thompson, who also goes by the name Abu Talib Al-Amriki, is a home-grown, Phoenix raised jihadist. He’s a convicted felon, prohibited from purchasing firearms, which he has repeatedly attempted to do online. He was arrested by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.

Geller links to an ABC 15 Arizona report.

Thompson’s arrest comes a month after Mahin Khan, an 18-year-old Arizona man, was sentenced to eight years in prison for terrorism convictions stemming from a plot to attack a motor vehicle office in metro Phoenix.

While the Arizona Republic busies itself denouncing President-elect Donald Trump and irrationally comparing him to German mass murderer Adolf Hitler weeks before his inauguration, fundamental Islamic terrorists are working to decimate us. The newspaper — which often reprints the identical story in another section of the same edition — can’t claim it has no additional space to inform Arizonans of the terrorists in our midst. It might just be it has no will to do so.

This nearly six-year old SRAZ post, Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns, includes this ABC 10 San Diego news report detailing the Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah has a long established foothold in Tijuana and other border towns.

Read the shocking results of this Center for Security Policy poll conducted among U.S. Muslims who say they would trade the U.S. Constitution for Shariah law and specify that the Quran should be highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion.

After famed neurosurgeon and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson responded to a question by saying that he would not support an obedient Muslim for president because Islamic law is incompatible with the U.S. Constitution, the former brain surgeon’s roasting among media talkers and politicians of all stripes took on a life of its own.

There’s no doubt that Dr. Carson was correct. But among dedicated liberals these days political correctness trumps being correct — even if we are ensuring our own demise and burqas for our granddaughters.


Another McMoney train needs help pulling out of station

December 22, 2016

Stripper Gypsy Rose Lee was known to have learned early on in her burlesque career that, “You gotta have a gimmick.”  John McCain obviously takes that advice seriously.

The octogenarian who was just reelected to another 6-year term last month is already trying to fill his coffers with another “gimmick.” 

McCain has learned well from his money-making machine friend Hillary Clinton, whom he has described as a “rock star.” Besides his McCain Foundation and the McCain Institute, there is the “Country First PAC” that needs cash infusions, too — ostensibly to elect conservatives. If you believe that, naiveté has trumped your better judgment.

Still McCain would be the first to tell us, he can’t do it alone.  He needs you to pitch in and fork over your fair share, though he knows it won’t be on the same level as the $1 million his Institute received from the government of Saudi Arabia.

Too much is never enough for John McCain. And electing conservatives is definitely not on his agenda.  In fact, even at the local precinct level in his home state, through his operatives, he has worked tirelessly to purge them from the party ranks after he was embarrassingly censured by Republican elected state committeemen in 2014. Former Sen. Jon Kyl engaged in the same purging shenanigans in 2012.

The only way these obsessive antics will end is by ridding ourselves of the source.  You’ll have the opportunity when amnesty proponent Jeff (Mc) Flake comes up for reelection in 2018. 


An enlightening review of the Electoral College & Update

December 19, 2016

As beleaguered electors meet today this cogent article is well timed

You’ll be glad you read Hillary Clinton supporters need to quit whining about the Electoral College  by James E. Campbell, Distinguished Professor of Political Science at the University at Buffalo, SUNY.

Check out the facts about the U. S. Electoral College and the roles and responsibilities of electors.

This is the list of Arizona’s 2016 Republican electors.Update-tag

Congress will certify the results on Jan. 6 and the president will be inaugurated Jan. 20, 2017.


Fall of NY Times evidence newspapers’ slow death quickening pace

December 18, 2016

NY Times cites a need to generate revenue and cut costs 

The New York Times reports to its staff that it has lain down and is fighting a losing battle with rigor mortis. The newspaper will vacate at least eight floors in its building, allowing it to “generate significant rental income” because it is “frankly, too expensive to occupy this many floors when we don’t truly need them.”

“We’ve made the decision to consolidate our footprint across the building to create a more dynamic, modern and open workplace, one that is better suited to the moment,” Publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. and President and CEO Mark Thompson wrote in a letter to their employees Friday. “We’re planning significant investments in a redesign of our existing space in order to facilitate more cross-departmental collaboration. We expect a substantial financial benefit as well. All told, we will vacate at least eight floors, allowing us to generate significant rental income.’

 ZeroHedge has the complete letter. You can smell the sweat of desperation in the Dear Colleagues letter — signed informally, Arthur and Mark — which promises more details soon.

 How long before Arizona’s largest newspaper alternately referred to as the Arizona Repugnant or Daily Regurgitation follows suit and folds its tent?  In Saturday’s edition, as an example, the exact same story, headline and photo appeared in two separate sections of the daily newspaper. Admittedly, the demographic for a hard copy edition thrown in the driveway, is the over 65 crowd, but even they know an insult when  they see it, whether it’s duplicate articles in the same edition or the reckless endorsement of scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton for President, the latter of which resulted in an explosion of subscription cancellations.

This Real Clear Politics post-election analysis by Jeffrey Anderson, Trump Won on the Issues, includes an examination the Arizona vote. Trump, whose campaign focused on jobs and illegal immigration, touched a nerve the Hillary endorsing newspapers across the country, sorely misjudged. Trump’s unprecedented win as a political outsider, also exposed the irrelevancy of endorsing newspapers.

In a last-ditch effort to stay alive, the Arizona Republic repeatedly implores its remaining readers to “Go deeper with digital.” With readership in decline and hemorrhaging subscriptions, the left-wing newspaper, pushing its dual agenda of amnesty for illegal aliens and force-feeding homosexual issues, reaps no benefit from paying for newsprint, ink or delivery while struggling to keep the lights on. Massive layoffs and incentivizing early retirements for longtime employees haven’t helped keep it off life support.

Still, the newspaper would rather fall on its sword insulting its readers than take a right turn to stay alive. When it comes to the newspaper industry, such martyrdom is simply another affront.


Leftist celebs urge GOP electors to abandon Trump

December 16, 2016

Watch as Martin Sheen, Debra Messing, James Cromwell, BD Wong, Noah Wyle, Freda Payne, Bob Odenkirk, J. Smith Cameron, Michael Urie, Moby, Mike Farrell, an unrecognizable Loretta Swit, Richard Schiff, Christine Lahti, Steven Pasquale, Emily Tyra, and Talia Balsam all appear in a video produced by “Unite for America,” a group specifically formed to try to prevent President-elect Donald Trump from becoming president.

These leftwing phonies each tell Republican electors whom they urge to violate their oaths, “You have my respect.” Citing Alexander Hamilton, one of our nation’s most influential Founders, who most of these dolts likely never heard of until the stage production “Hamilton” appeared on Broadway. It provided a cast member the opportunity to insult Republican Vice President elect Mike Pence who was in the audience.       

Monday, December 19, 2016 is the day electors will meet and officially certify the vote for President of the United States. This fact sheet on the Electoral College contains all of the specifics.

Next time you’re tempted to go to the movies, think about the fact that a large share of your ticket prices go to support the lavish lifestyles of these, and other arrogant liberals. Is there any entertainment worth abandoning your principles for?


What’s Fox News’ fascination with John & Meghan McCain?

December 14, 2016

How conveniently timed. In less than a week following the Nov. 8, 2016 General Election in which her octogenarian father was reelected to another 6-year senate term, Meghan McCain was named a permanent co-host of “Outnumbered” a Fox News weekday morning show. The theme is to showcase a rotating panel of leggy female commentators, including co-host Harris Faulkner and Sandra Smith — along with one male panelist.  The topic is, of course, politics.

In an example of Fox News’ supposedly “fair and balanced” coverage, while Meghan was just an occasional panelist and in the midst of John McCain’s senate campaign, he was the “outnumbered” male seated alongside Meghan.

But his hypocrisy was on display in this interview (30-second video clip) with Fox News host Neil Cavuto, as ingrate John McCain sarcastically bites the hand that fed him as he compares the network to Vietnam radio propagandist “Hanoi Hannah.”

Like her father, coarse and salty-tongued, the newly glammed Meghan McCain, 32, is an outspoken opponent of Donald Trump. Unlike dear old dad, she wasn’t thrilled with Hillary, either, saying she voted for Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin. A deep thinker, she authored a whiney “memoir” in 2010 titled, “Dirty Sexy Politics.”

On Tuesday, with the topic of discussion President-elect Donald Trump’s secretary of state pick, “Can Rex Tillerson ease critics’ concerns? Meghan vacillated between sounding as though daddy was whispering negative talking points in her ear piece to getting testy with David Webb, the male guest.

As we noted in “The like totally inane Ms. McCain,” Fox News’ GOP go-to woman only registered as a Republican in 2008 as a surprise Father’s Day gift during what became John McCain’s failed race for President of the United States.


Leftist lawyer:Jeff Flake must reject Jeff Sessions as U.S. AG

December 12, 2016

In a “My Turn” article published Thursday in the state‘s largest newspaper, attorney and “community leader” Daniel R. Ortega, Jr. opines on why Sen. Jeff Flake should pull his support of Sen. Jeff Sessions for United States Attorney General.

Ortega repeats stale and long discredited tales intended solely to portray the conservative Alabama senator as a racist, which has become the go-to position of the radical left when attempting to sully an opponent. Disagreeing on issues such as amnesty for illegals, which Ortega slyly refers to as “immigration reform,” or questioning birthright citizenship which has been abused and misinterpreted  to the point it no longer resembles its original intent, doesn’t make Sen. Sessions or anyone else an “extremist.”

As a slam aimed at Jeff Flake — and this site has lobbed numerous ones in his direction — Ortega attempts to put Flake in the same Donald Trump supporting “basket of deplorables” that desperate and scandal plagued presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke of before having to fold her political tent. Either Ortega is unaware that Flake refused to support the Republican nominee or simply doesn’t care, if the facts don’t play into his narrative.

Jeff Flake voted to confirm the blatant anti-white racist, terrorist supporting and anti-Semitic Loretta Lynch,* when she was appointed U.S. Attorney General by Barack Obama. Flake was prepared to confirm Obama’s Democrat selectee Merrick Garland to replace conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. 

John McCain, worried about his reelection to another 6-year term while in his 80’s, cast a nay vote on Lynch. Previously, Sens. Kyl and McCain both voted to confirm Eric Holder as U.S. A.G. Holder began his tenure insulting Americans who put Obama in the Oval Office with his “Nation of Cowards” speech, presided over the bungled Fast and Furious sting operation that placed thousands of weapons in the hands of violent Mexican drug cartels — resulting in the death of Arizona border patrol agent Brian Terry. Holder sued Arizona over SB 1070. He was the first Attorney General to ever be held in contempt of Congress.

Sen. Jeff Sessions is an honorable man who deserves confirmation. Daniel Ortega is hurling buckshot hoping something sticks, though he hypocritically remained silent when the nominee was hate monger Loretta Lynch. He should be ignored.
