Priest has congregants renounce their “white privilege” during BLM prayer

September 3, 2020

Black Lives Matter militants being promoted in Houses of Worship

A Catholic church in New York City recently hosted a Black Lives Matter prayer session where white congregants were asked to renounce their “white privilege” in the name of “racial justice.”

During the prayer held in St. Xavier Catholic Church worshipers were led in repeating the words of Father Kenneth Boller, who had decorated the altar with giant portraits of George Floyd, Breanna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery.

“Do you affirm that white privilege is unfair and is harmful to those that have it and those who do not? Yes,” Fr. Boller says, leading parishioners to answer in unison.

In July, Bishop Timothy Doherty, of the Diocese of Lafayette in Indiana suspended Rev. Theodore Rothrock, an Indianapolis Catholic priest from public ministry for rationally calling out Black Lives Matter activists in a church bulletin:

“The only lives that matter are their own and the only power they seek is their own. They are wolves in wolves clothing, masked thieves and bandits, seeking only to devour the life of the poor and profit from the fear of others. They are maggots and parasites at best, feeding off the isolation of addiction and broken families, and offering to replace any current frustration and anxiety with more misery and greater resentment.”

Following his suspension, Father Rothrock obediently issued an apology for speaking the truth.

Don’t be fooled by sanctimonious clergy of all denominations, who too often forget their mission and hop on the far left train. BLM partially funded by anti-America Socialist multi-billionaire George Soros, promotes arson, looting and civil unrest across the nation and has received nearly $2 billion from corporate coalitions (shocking list) that are actually funding the dismantling of America.

The Vortex, a vocal Catholic site founded by “Church Militant,” Michael Voris, exposes the fact that BLM is anti-Catholic, calling it “straight up Marxist.”

RNC Night 3: Pres. Trump acclaimed by powerful, diverse speakers

August 27, 2020

Wednesday night’s theme “Land of Opportunity,” couldn’t have been more fitting. The opening prayer was offered by Rabbi Aryeh Spero, a dedicated supporter of Pres. Donald J. Trump.

Vice President Mike Pence, Second Lady Karen Pence, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, Kellyanne Conway, Keith Kellogg, Jack Brewer, Madison Cawthorn, Scott Dane, Clarence Henderson, Ryan Holets, Michael McHale, Burgess Owens, and Lara Trump all spoke fervently in support of the president.

The impressive list of speakers included numerous women, including one who was unknown and another we are accustomed to seeing at press conferences, who stunned with her personal story.

Sister Dede Byrne, is a surgeon, who served as a Colonel in the U.S. Army Medical Corps and ultimately as a nun with Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts, all the while providing medical care. Her appearance at the GOP Convention on behalf of pro-life President Trump, added a compelling dimension to the list of speakers that included political and sports leaders.

We know Kayleigh McEnany as the White House press secretary and Harvard Law School graduate, but didn’t expect the personal story she shared.

Juxtapose the insights and profound commitment these distinct voices bring in their support for Pres. Donald Trump’s reelection against the fact that Joe Biden, first elected in 1970, has accomplished nothing other than advocating for bigger government, higher taxes, echoing the BLM mantra of defunding the police and less freedom. Biden, who often appears incoherent, remains silent on the rioters, looters, arsonists and murderers destroying lives and American cities. He has repeatedly offended black Americans, most recently with his noxiously insulting statement, “If you vote for Trump,you ain’t black.” Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones, a black, lifelong Democrat, speaking in support of Pres. Trump, disagrees with Biden.

Arizonans Republicans are all too familiar with political duplicity, and pay it little heed. Jeff Flake, a single-term U.S. Senator came out against Pres. Trump and saw his own approval numbers plummet to 18%, causing him to abandon his reelection campaign. The aptly named Flake, hungry for attention, has no constituency other than his own flakey has-been echo chamber, as detailed in this Daily Caller article.

Businessman Donald Trump ran for the presidency and was elected over a career politician in 2016. With our help, he’ll do it again.


VP Pence visits AZ; Montini develops sex-based amnesia

August 12, 2020

Visceral hatred of Pres. Trump obscures Pence’s uplifting message of myriad successes

Republican Vice President Mike Pence generated enthusiastic crowds in support of President Donald Trump‘s successes during his visit to faith-based Arizona voters Tuesday, but the local newspaper’s coverage focused on Democrat Joe Biden’s selection of a running mate.

Deceit runs rampant at the Arizona Republic. Though the newspaper endorsed Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump was victorious in 2016, winning 306 Electoral votes to scandal-plagued Hillary’s 232. The newspaper and its political henchmen have never recovered.

Americans will remember Hillary going to the mat to defend her philandering husband, Bill, doing whatever it took to insure their political viability. Her unique challenge began in 1992 with this “60 Minutes” interview in which, affecting a soft southern accent, she invoked country music star Tammy Wynette’s “Stand by your man,” after newscaster Gennifer Flowers revealed her 12-year romance with Bill Clinton. An infuriated Wynette called Hillary “an enabler.”

Bill Clinton has been publicly accused of rape and sexual assault by numerous women, including Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Leslie Millwee. Rather than going under oath again and testifying about his sexual history, Clinton agreed to an out-of-court settlement, paying Jones and her lawyers $850,000 to drop a subsequent lawsuit.

Far-left feminists raced to his defense blaming the women. The View, co-host Joy Behar referred to Bill Clinton’s accusers as “tramps,” later apologizing after blowback. In an NYT’s editorial former feminist icon Gloria Steinem foolishly wrote of Willey and Jones, “Mr. Clinton seems to have made clumsy sexual passes, then accepted rejection.” 

James Carville, Clinton’s campaign strategist and longtime friend was so enraged with the women who accused the president, he demeaned them, saying, “You drag $100 bills through trailer parks, there’s no tellin’ what you’ll find. I know these people (the accusers). I went to school with ’em. I necked with ’em in backseats. I spent nights with ’em.”

Hillary’s defense of Bill’s infidelities continued before and after it was revealed he had an ongoing affair in the Oval Office with a young White House intern, Monica Lewinsky. The revelations, and his obstruction of justice, perjury and suborning perjury led to his impeachment in 1998. He later claimed the affair “controlled (his) anxieties.” There were other such revelations, but Hillary and Bill put their political priorities in the driver’s seat.

This old news becomes relevant as the newspaper’s dilapidated columnist EJ Montini, covers Vice President Pence‘s Arizona trip. Montini’s headline?:

“VP Mike Pence brings his ‘Ignore the Adultery (and Other Sins)’ tour to Arizona.”

Montini isn’t inferring Pence has done anything untoward, It’s all negativity aimed at President Trump. That this tripe constitutes news is why the newspaper has the lowest circulation of all of the papers in the Gannett chain. The once reliable Arizona Republic has sunken below tabloid status which partially accounts for its lack of readership. In 2020, news is instantaneous, available on a wide variety of platforms and free. Keeping Montini on the payroll is a foolish expenditure on many levels. Furloughing columnist Karina Bland as a cost cutting measure her columns are replaced by recycled ones from Clay Thompson who died in 2018. The failing newspaper should replace Montini with former archived columns of Don Dedera.


Biblically based wisdom and Nov. 2020’s political choices

Comparing the policies of Republicans and Democrats within a religious context

On Saturday, one of our commenters, VINOAZ, included a link to a Townhall column that describes why it is imperative for Republicans to reelect President Trump this coming November.

The column, worthy of today’s stand alone post is titled,Letter to an Anti-Trump Christian Friend,” by Wayne Grudem, PhD, an author and Research Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies at Phoenix Seminary in Arizona. Dr. Grudem’s complete biography and links to his books and other articles can be read here.

Don’t be deterred by the Townhall’s article’s length since much of it is attributable to excessive spacing, over which we have no control. You won’t regret taking the time to read this excellent commentary which includes a link to his List of 25 Good Things President Trump Has Done For America. Both are definitely apropos for Sunday.


What’s Driving Mitt Romney?

June 9, 2020

The movie “Driving Miss Daisy” won the Academy Award for best picture decades ago. It featured an elderly white southern widow whose son hired a black chauffeur for her, after she wrecked her car. Set in the 1940’s, the story, which begins with their mutual hostility, ends with their deep friendship.

Mitt Romney is a longtime narcissist and political opportunist, who has moved to whichever state could afford him the next higher office he was seeking. Now a U.S. Senator from Utah, he was previously the governor of Massachusetts. He ran for president in 2008 losing the primary to John McCain — and in 2012 lost to Barack Obama. Irate that he was unable to attain the presidency after so judiciously setting his path, he maliciously voted to convict President Trump in the Democrat’s contrived impeachment trial, becoming the only senator in U.S. history to vote to convict a president of their own party.

As to our question, about what’s driving Mitt…Most recently it’s been difficult to escape photos and video clips of the duplicitous Mitt marching in solidarity with the ‘Black Lives Matters’ protesters, who joined in American cites with looters and arsonists wantonly destroying $billions in property and engaging in vicious assaults.

Though they are now leaders in the “Defund and Replace” America’s police officers, Mitt has bonded with them and is on-board with their reprehensible agenda. Chicago, with higher death rates than global war zones, with mostly black victims, stands as a stunning example of lawlessness under Democrat leadership. William Hale Thompson (elected 1915 to 1923 and again from 1927 to 1931) was the most recent Republican to have served as the city’s mayor. Mitt hasn’t shown his face there.

And where was he for most of his 73 years when the LDS Church he was born into prohibited black men of African descent from being ordained to the church’s priesthood? It wasn’t until 1978, the church’s First Presidency declared through a revelation, that the restriction had been lifted.

This explanation was published by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 2013.

Under the priesthood ban, black men and women were unable to hold any significant church callings, be leaders or serve missions. For men, the priesthood is required for many leadership and church callings and is given to virtually every Latter-day Saint male as early as age 11. When Brigham Young instituted the priesthood restriction in 1852, black members were barred from many leadership and service positions. In 1952, President McKay banned blacks from speaking at priesthood meetings and firesides.

Where was Mitt?  He didn’t protest or march in support of principled blacks who were denied full participation in the Latter-day Saints church. They had to wait for a revelation. Yet corrupt and immoral thieves and vandals have Mitt’s full support.

What’s driving Mitt Romney?

AZ Republic contemptibly provides cover for hate group

April 9, 2020

Hillary-endorsing, leftwing newspaper engages in deliberate mischaracterizations, a hallmark of what has been identified as fake news

Recently the failing, leftist AZ Republic headlined an article, “SPLC: Virus could mean spread of hate.” Richard Ruelas was unmothballed to deliver a defense for Southern Poverty Law Center, a renowned hate group. Patriot and church groups are reliably in the sights of the radical organization.

Kristen Waggoner, general counsel and senior vice president of U.S. legal division and communications at Alliance Defending Freedom, the nation’s largest religious freedom legal advocacy organization, responded in a op-ed headlined, “Hate list is used to smear conservative groups like Alliance Defending Freedom.” She is featured in this 2017 SRAZ exposé,Networks’ disgraceful allegations against Christian legal group.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) multi-pronged fundraising modus operandi is based on an ever-expanding Hate Map that deliberately mischaracterizes victims as perpetrators of hatred. Alliance Defending Freedom, churches and the Border Patrol are among those showcased.

Watch (video) as Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins tells Fox News’ Tucker Carlson how his organization was placed on the infamous hate list and then targeted by a gunman who entered the organization’s D.C. headquarters, shooting a security guard. The gunman ultimately was sentenced to 25 years.

The hard-left Washington Post used this bland headline to describe the shooting, Morning shooting in Northwest D.C.

The SPLC’s skewed policy is so egregious, this absurdity is an example of its Hatewatch blog that deceitfully claims it “monitors and exposes the activities of the American radical right.” 

March 23, 2020:  “The Trump administration took steps to block asylum seekers from entering the U.S.-Mexico border amid the COVID-19 pandemic. This nativist policy course has been pushed by anti-immigrant pundits and hate groups from the time the crisis started to unfold.”

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart will long be remembered for his quote describing his threshold for obscenity in a 1964 case: “I know it when I see it.” So it is with hatred. It can’t be made palatable by a ruthless perpetrator denying its own obvious engagement in evil.


Abdul-Jabbar suffers from acute case of TDS

March 23, 2020

Trump Derangement Syndrome claims another victim

It’s been fifty years since basketball great Lew Alcindor, Jr. shook off his father’s name, converted to Islam and re-christened himself Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He obviously didn’t realize he was honoring Arab slave traders as he rejected his American name. He also boycotted the 1968 Summer Olympics by opting not to try out for the U.S. Men’s Olympic Basketball team, which went on to capably win the gold medal. Abdul-Jabbar’s decision to shun the games was in protest of what he strangely regarded the unequal treatment of blacks in the United States, setting the stage for National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick to bend a knee rather than stand for the National Anthem decades later — though they both made $multi-millions and were idolized by fans.

This historical ignorance and rejection of America was, for a brief moment, voguish, as esteemed prize fighter Cassius Clay, Jr., also embraced Islam, ditched his father’s name and became Muhammed Ali.  He also used his new found faith as a cover for draft dodging during the Vietnam War. The ignorant Ali announced, “I ain’t got no quarrel with those Vietcong,” the communist troops aligned with ruthless dictator Ho Chi Minh, who was responsible for countless deaths in his own country and loss of life and limb of American servicemen trying to bring stability to those living under the brutal regime.

The lack of historical relevancy is worth noting since radical leftist Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has recently attacked President Donald Trump, comparing him to Nazis in Hunters Series, as reported in detail by Jay Maxson of NewsBusters. Abdul-Jabbar’s visceral Trump hatred spews like a geyser.  He also conveniently ignores the fact that the Nazi Third Reich tortured and slaughtered millions of minorities, including Jews, gypsies, and the infirm. Another pertinent fact that the black Muslim converts astonishingly disregard and as black conservative talk show host, columnist, author and lawyer Larry Elder pointed out in this column, “many know little to nothing about the vast role played by Arab and Muslim slavers in the African slave trade.”

Though the object of hero worship by fans of all races, Abdul-Jabbar was known to be rude to admirers and developed an arrogant penchant for insultingly reading the newspaper while giving interviews.

And who would have guessed that this historical revisionist actually graduated UCLA with a B.A in history?


Why do Dems have an aversion to God?

February 2, 2020

Watch as Democrats delete God from congressional proceedings as witnesses are sworn in:

 

This is not new for them. Remember the chaos that erupted at the 2012 Democrat National Convention over the insertion of the word “God” or the recognition of Jerusalem into their platform? Seeing Red AZ covered the shameful episode then. Even those conducting the meeting were confounded as the boorish delegates loudly protested and booed.

 

Although our founding documents did not endorse a specific religion, they do acknowledge God. The two key founding documents in American history are the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The first explains why we exist as a nation. Not only does the Declaration mention God four times, most importantly, it says that our rights come from the Creator.

In President George Washington’s first proclamation in 1789, declaring a national day of Thanksgiving, he referenced God 16 times.

He obviously wasn’t a Democrat.
