It’s reassuring to know we’re stridin’ with Biden. Be sure to thank those you know who voted for him
He’s promised to have enough vaccine for “300 Americans” by the end of summer.
News agency will no longer cover “not newsworthy” crimes
Associated Press is back to its old tricks, determining what is now too offensive for general consumption while attempting to manipulate American’s attitudes via language. It has become the self-appointed arbiter of communication, with no one to challenge its leftist perspective. SRAZ has written about the agency’s overreaches intended to cunningly alter the vantage point of readers, now utilizing loaded language techniques while ignoring minority perpetrated criminality.
In 2019 AP reporters were instructed on retooling language in an effort to reconfigure opinions. In 2021 deceitful word manipulation has become even more emboldened. We noted at the time that what was once heralded as the free press, has grotesquely transmogrified to purveyors of mind control. This is an important link which is worth your time.
Claiming its mission is to “inform the world,” and “setting the industry standard for ethics in journalism,” AP boasts it’s been on the scene since 1846. Its former rival United Press International (UPI) has all but dried up and bitten the dust.
AP’s latest gambit is deeming certain names too objectionable to be seen in print. Naming crime suspects or showing mug shots of minority criminal perpetrators is now considered racist, although their presumably loving mothers bestowed the monikers on them.
John Daniszewski, AP’s Vice President for Standards, ignores the fact that crime stats are highest among minority perpetrators, since that doesn’t fit into the leftist perspective as it skews the news. He writes, “The names of suspects are generally not newsworthy beyond their local communities. We will not link from these stories to others that do name the person, and we will not move mug shots in these cases, since the accused would be identifiable by that photo as well. We also will stop publishing stories driven mainly by a particularly embarrassing mug shot, nor will we publish such mug shots solely because of the appearance of the accused.”
In a world inhabited by leftists even those calling themselves “journalists,“ charged with delivering the news, showing or naming the perpetrator is now racist or too embarrassing.
It’s worth considering if John Daniszewski would be so generous if either he, his wife or children were brutally victimized by those whose violent crimes he is intent on ignoring.
In 1998 a movie titled, The Horse Whisperer, starred Robert Redford when he was still recognizable. Redford played a horse trainer with a talent for understanding and communicating with horses.
America is witnessing its own version, with a twist. Pres. Joe Biden, who is no longer recognizable due to the blank stare in his eyes and his increasing tenancy to inappropriately shuffle off both subject and stage, is now trying to emulate Redford. Biden has bizarrely morphed into the Hoarse Whisperer. While in Great Britain recently addressing U.S. troops, his wife, Jill, had to admonish him, scolding, “Joe, pay attention!” (video under link) as he tuned his back to her as she spoke.
Biden then compounds the calamity by admitting, “I keep forgetting I’m president.” If this clearly diminished man is supposed to represent America on the world stage, we are in “big trouble” — as he often admits he is. But, with whom? He never says. Could he have abusive caretakers?
California stands as a pathetic example of what becomes of a state where voters have repeatedly elected radicals as governor,* U.S. Senators, (both are democrats), U.S. Representatives, (41 out of 53 are democrats), a disproportionately leftward state assembly/legislators (59 dems, 19 Republicans, 1 registered Independent) and state senators (31 dems, 9 Republicans).
If they are still capable of doing so, Californians should emulate dozens of mooing cows headed for the slaughterhouse. They have taken matters in their own hooves. Not willing to stand idly by awaiting their own demise, they made a run for it. CBS News provides coverage and video.
With democrats in control, it’s no surprise that California, at 13.3%, has the highest state income tax of any state.
*Arnold Schwarzenegger elected in 2003 was the last Republican governor. Current Gov. Gavin Newsom, a democrat, is facing a recall.
It comes as no surprise that Pres. Joe Biden is repaying Republicrat Cindy Lou Hensley McCain for her support of the democrat presidential ticket in 2020. He has nominated her to a Rome-based ambassadorship to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture.
Though she was embarrassingly unable to energize any supporters when campaigning for the Harris/OBiden duo, she persevered, due to her visceral jealousy-based hatred of conservative President Donald Trump. He was easily able to attain the presidency that had twice eluded her RINO* husband.
The far left local newspaper, along with democrat Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly have lavished praise on Cindy McCain, repeatedly referring to her as a “humanitarian.” Sinema couldn’t contain her enthusiasm, issuing a statement that noted, in part, that “Cindy McCain is a demonstrated humanitarian…and a terrific choice to combat famine and hunger crises around the world.”
It must have slipped Sinema’s mind that “humanitarian” Cindy, then an addict, stole prescription opiates from her own medical aid charity.**
At the January 2021 Statutory Meeting of elected GOP state delegates, Cindy McCain was censured by the elected Republican delegates, replicating the 2014 censure of her late husband John, for his bonding to the left. Still stung by his intra-party rejections, the never-accused-of-being-intelligent Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship heiress tweeted, “It exposes for all to see the reckless selfishness of President Trump and the cynicism of elected Republicans, who defended his unconstitutional effort to cling to power. They have shamed our country, and delighted our enemies.”
Grant Woods, John McCain’s first chief of staff, and later elected as Attorney General as a Republican…who had signed on (click to enlarge) as a Republican for democrat Janet Napolitano…also jumped into “humanitarian” mode as he described Cindy. After years of threatening to reregister as a democrat he finally made good on his promise, to the delight of actual Republicans.
John McCain retaliated against the censuring delegates by working with wealthy out-of-state Obama allies to purge the Arizona Republican activists from their elected though unpaid posts.

Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel has new mission
In an office whose duty is prosecution of criminals, Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel has, instead, hopped onboard the inclusivity and diversity bandwagon, signing a “unity pledge.”
Recently, the appointed county attorney bizarrely dismissed the charges against the anti-police rioters marauding in downtown Phoenix, issuing this statement:
“It is the decision of this office that it is in the interests of justice to not proceed.” She concluded her statement with these words: “I believe that just because we can legally pursue charges does not always mean that we should. It is not an easy decision to step away from a case when we believe crimes were committed, but in this case, it is the right thing to do.”
This absurd action emboldening criminality is why she needs to be challenged by someone who understands the difference between a social worker mentality and doing the job of prosecuting criminals and keeping the county safe for law abiding residents.
Instead there is a new focus. An interoffice email from the MCAO Diversity Committee lavished praise on President Biden for making history by signing a law recognizing Juneteenth as a federal holiday.
“Hello MCAO Community, the DEI Committee is going to start sending out a “Spotlight on Diversity” email at the beginning of each month. Starting with July, we will spotlight an MCAO employee, sharing the diversity and value they bring to our office. If you or someone you know would be a great spotlight, please let us know!”
The email also noted that “June is Pride month, celebrating the LGBTQ+ community, giving its history along with this “Fun fact”: A few years ago, organizers decided it is too hot in Phoenix to have a June parade and festival. Phoenix Pride parade and festival now happens in early November.”
Included in the email was a list of Inclusion tips:
– Get familiar with the LBGTQ+ spectrum
– Learn terminology
– Use inclusive language in communication (instead of Ladies and Gentlemen, try folks, friends, community members)
– Participate in local events and groups (consider joining the LGBTQ+ ERG as an ally)
– Respect people’s pronouns and names
The tagline on the lengthy memo, announcing monthly messages on this topic, states: “Diversity in itself does not create inclusion — an inclusive environment must be intentionally designed, nurtured, and supported.”
Allister Adel’s selection by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors following the resignation of former Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery when he was appointed to the Arizona Supreme Court was greeted with fanfare proclaiming her as the first female to head the prosecutor’s office.
She should not have been identified by her plumbing, but by her leftward bent.
Arizona is on fire. But the devastating flames that are consuming vast numbers of homes and acres in rural counties are not the sole reason. Rational citizens are inflamed over the $trillions the radical OBiden administration* is spending. The leftwing Arizona Republic newspaper calls it “federal money,” never acknowledging that it’s money taken from taxpaying citizens in ever-increasing amounts.
An example in today’s edition is this headline, “How Arizona plans to spend federal COVID relief money.” The article’s first sentence? “More than $1 billion in federal COVID-19 relief funds has flowed into Arizona’s health department, and state officials are working to spend it over the next two to three years to make sure the state is better prepared for future health crises.”
Get that? “More than $1 billion flowed.” Reporters Stephanie Innes and Alison Steinbach never question the source of the “flow.” The three pages of radically leftist, sycophantic coverage is an outstanding example of why the Arizona Republic is gasping its last breaths.
* Washington Examiner headline: “Obama says Biden is ‘finishing’ the job of his administration.”
White newscaster arrogantly lectures black U.S. Rep. on how to be black
CNS News, a division of Media Research Center, exposes a CNN report and media interview (watch by clicking on the link) that are shocking in their arrogance.
U.S. Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) during his appearance with CNN’s “New Day” anchor Brianna Keilar accused the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) of discriminating against him by denying him membership because he’s a Republican. There are currently no Republican members of Congress in the Congressional Black Caucus. Steely-eyed, smirking and with an occasional arched eyebrow, Brianna Keilar sticks with her prepared talking points and ignores the responses of the congressman, even interjecting his remarks with, “That’s not true.“ She also accuses Congressman Donalds of “defending” President Trump, and told him his ideas are “incongruous” with those of the Congressional Black Caucus.
Unable to discern facts beyond her limited perspective, Keilar cited two leftwing newspapers to bolster her contentions.
There are black Republicans who have a keen insight into what’s best for blacks, and recognize it isn’t the democrat party. Here in Arizona Republican state Rep. Walt Blackman (LD-6) a Constitutional Conservative ably represents his constituents. He recently announced his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives for CD 1 now represented by a democrat.
Republican Mark Robinson is Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina, the first black elected to the second highest position in the state in 2020. He won the Republican nomination clearing the 30% threshold and avoiding a primary runoff. Robinson defeated a state senator, superintendent of public instruction, a former congresswoman, and former state representative.
Robinson is pro-life and pro-Second Amendment, and back-burners the dems driving issue of climate change, desiring America to remain energy independent, not dependent on purchasing our fuel from China, Iran and Russia, all our committed enemies.
Since a dwindling number of Arizonans subscribe to the radically left-wing local newspaper, there is likely an unawareness of its most recent move to de-anglicize its reporting. In today’s edition there is a revealing article titled, “Mexicans living abroad to gain representative in Mexico.” It details how illegal aliens from Mexico City who have invaded the United States will be able to elect a “migrant representative to act on their behalf as a member of congress in the city.”
If that’s not convoluted enough to make American heads spin, the report contains a first for the newspaper we have sarcastically referred to as the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic):
“México is set to host its largest election ever, with 500 seats up for grabs, ranging from local and regional representatives to gubernatorial positions all over the country.
And while several states will be electing a statewide migrant representative, only the country’s capital is allowing migrants currently residing outside of the country to vote for this specific seat. For Arizonans who are natives of México City and have registered to vote, that means they can cast a ballot come Sunday.”
Notice the accent mark that is a new addition to the word Mexico? Unless you are willing to be culturally reacclimated by the leftist newspaper, this overreach is an insult.
The newspaper’s commitment to diversity has been given front page coverage by executive editor, Greg Burton as he details the new hiring practices that include “the goal to match a community that is 44% people of color.”
Hiring based on qualifications is a outdated concept at the newspaper. In order to authentically report the news, diversity takes precedent. This offensive concept invalidates professionals in all walks of life. Having a degree that relates to your line of work is no longer paramount. To be considered a valuable employee it’s imperative you represent a specific ethnicity and have the proper amount of melanin in your skin pigment — traits over which none of us have any control.
