AZ Republic’s selective and skewed news reporting

January 12, 2020

The rapidly deteriorating, leftist skewed local newspaper remains committed to its own demise. Its slim edition pages are rife with regurgitated reports. Reliable fall backs include the 1976 car bombing of investigative reporter Don Bolles. Yes. It was shockingly gruesome, shaking placid Arizonans to their core — nearly a half century ago.

In the 1990’s Arizonans elected women to the top state offices: Gov. Jane Dee Hull, Secretary of State Betsey Bayless, Attorney General Janet Napolitano, Treasurer Carol Springer and Superintendent of Public Instruction Lisa Graham Keegan. Although there were RINOs and a radical leftist in the mix, they gained national attention making public appearances as Arizona’s “Fab Five.” Decades later, that remains a reliable front page rehash.

The Daily Regurgitation, devoted a week’s worth of front pages written by an, “Oh no, my hair is turning gray,” columnist detailing the tortuous saga of a child who was finally removed from her mother’s custody and adopted by a family who could nurture and provide for her. The druggie mother, who lived on the streets between bunking with a succession of men, spurned help and never showed for mandatory court appearances regarding her daughter. She was described as lacking money, but had painted fingernails and smoked cigarettes, while her young daughter went hungry. 

Nowhere on the anti-Trump Arizona Republic’s pages did you read this report or anything remotely resembling these facts. Expecting to be informed by the anorexic daily is a fool’s errand and a costly one, at that.

Whistleblower: Obama Administration Sent Letters to Soleimani

The Sunday January 12, 2020 edition’s full front page and two jump pages is devoted to a skewed report of old news by Daniel Gonzalez, titled, “Sign of the times” (showing then Gov. Jan Brewer signing SB 1070 into law) subtitled, “10 years after SB 1070, what has happened to the undocumented population in Arizona?” Omitted is the fact that illegal aliens who invade our country have no legal right to be here. They are neither undocumented nor migrants. Read Number 3 in our still popular 2008 post Lingo”… a primer in reading Republicese.

The actual title of Senate Bill 1070 is “Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act.”

Iran: 2015 memory jogger; putting events in perspective

January 8, 2020

Anti-Trump Dems view wise national security decisions through murky political haze

In view of the leftist commotion following the Trump administration’s decisive action against sadistic, terrorist mastermind, Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, there is no better time than now to take a short stroll back in time to read this bi-partisan memory jogger from 2015, from the United States Committee on Foreign Relations, when Barack Obama was president. Sen. Corker has since retired and Sen. Tim Kaine was resuscitated after falling flat as Hillary Clinton’s running mate. 

Now fast forward to January 2, 2020, just days ago, U.S. Senator Jim Risch, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, issued this statement regarding the death of Qassem Soleimani:

“Congratulations to President Trump on his decisive action and the successful outcome. Qassem Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans and his death presents an opportunity for Iraq to determine its own future free from Iranian control. As I have previously warned the Iranian government, they should not mistake our reasonable restraint in response to their previous attacks as weakness. The U.S. will always vigorously defend our interests and allies in the face of terrorist conduct and provocations.

On behalf of every American serviceman and servicewoman who has either been killed or injured due to an Iranian-provided IED or rocket in Iraq over the years, today justice was done. Soleimani was responsible for the weapons program that caused those casualties and injuries with the use of those treacherous and cowardly devices.”

Radical Dems aim to swell voter base with China’s aid

January 6, 2020

The importance of this information cannot be overemphasized.  We must be armed with facts in order to keep our country and reelect Pres. Trump

Arizona has made the news again. This time as part of a far leftist multi-state alliance, known as the State Power Caucus, led by pro-China communists. Its goal is the mobilization of 40 million new Democrat voters for the 2020 election. The radically left group’s About” page opens with these disturbingly deceptive words:

“We re-launched Organizing Upgrade in 2017 to serve as a space where left organizers can discuss strategy and share organizing models that respond to the profound dangers and the real opportunities of this political moment.

The Trump administration poses a series of grave threats. Most central is the dangerous ascent of white nationalism, which — after years of racist backlash and the strategic use of race by the Republican Party — now has sway at the very center of executive power in this country. This is, in turn, is [sic] energizing grassroots mobilization among white supremacist forces of many stripes.”

A recent post from the group is titled,Seed the Vote: A Project to Fight the Right and Build the Left in 2020 and Beyond.

Trevor Loudon, a well-respected columnist, has written this must read exposé:40 Million New Democrat Vote, Will the ‘State Power Caucus’ Destroy America? which appears in Epoch Times. He includes crucial pre-election information, and names the group’s leaders.

Passé singer Linda Ronstadt compares Pres. Trump to Hitler

January 5, 2020

The old adage that wisdom routinely accompanies age is a fallacy. With proper guidance, wisdom can flourish in youth. Age has little to do with it. There is no smart cell that develops in middle age and keeps regenerating and increasing in size until all septuagenarian and octogenarians attain genius level.

Onetime pop star, singer Linda Ronstadt is a case in point. Then pretty and possessing a good voice and versatile style, she went solo in the 1960s. Now in her mid-70s, the Tucson-born Ronstadt, whose brother Peter was the city’s police chief, has lost her voice to the ravages of Parkinson’s Disease, and has become an unrecognizable “activist.” Few people under 50 know her name today.

And wouldn’t you know…she hates President Trump?

Now living in radical San Francisco, she is back in her element, having been the main squeeze of far-left California Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown in the 1970s.

Crime, homelessness, rat infestations and piles of human waste fouling sidewalks, driving away tourists, must appeal to Ronstadt. What doesn’t resonate with her is history. She confuses murderous tyrants with the leader of the free world.

Her latest statement exhibiting her abysmal ignorance came during this recent interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. Ronstadt said she sees “great parallels” between pre-Nazi Germany and now.

“The intelligentsia of Berlin and the literati and all the artists were just busy doing their thing. Hitler rose to power. There were a lot of chances to stop him, and they didn’t speak out,” she told Cooper. “The industrial complex thought they could control him once they got him in office, and, of course, he was not controllable.”

By the time he got established, he put his own people in place and stacked the courts and did what he had to do to consolidate his power,” she said. “And we got Hitler, and he destroyed Germany. He destroyed centuries of intellectual history forward and backward.”

Cooper responded, telling Ronstadt that he thinks a lot of people would be “surprised” to hear her make comparisons between Nazi Germany and Trump’s America.

“If you look at history, you won’t be surprised, it’s exactly the same. You find a common enemy for everybody to hate” Ronstadt said. “I was sure that Trump was going to get elected the day he announced, and I said it’s going to be like Hitler and the Mexicans are the new Jews. And sure enough, that’s what he delivered.”

Her comments are exceedingly ignorant. Linda Ronstadt might have missed the part of her ‘historical studies” that detailed concentration camps, ovens for humans and showers that spewed deadly gas on naked men, women and children who were cruelly handed bars of soap to placate them before they were massacred. Six million Jews who were generational citizens of the countries of Germany, Poland, Lithuania and other Eastern European nations were initially required to wear yellow six-pointed stars identifying them, disallowed schooling, fired from their jobs, then forced out of their homes, rounded up, starved, suffered depraved medical experimentation and exterminated. Train tracks were built to bring the prisoners directly to the killing centers.

It is the disease of liberalism rather than Parkinson’s Disease that has eroded Linda Ronstadt’s mind.

Apologizing for the killing of Qassem Soleimani? 

January 4, 2020

Leftist U.S. media now identify the butcher as an “iconic and charismatic leader”

Radical protests are being organized by Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (catch-all word used by the left), a blame America first, anti-Israel, coalition demanding the U.S. withdraw all troops from Iraq.

Jane Fonda, now 82, who sided with the North Vietnamese against the U.S and our own military is expected to join the demonstration in D.C.

For those who want to apologize to Iran for the killing of Qassem Soleimani, take a moment to acquaint yourself with Army Captain Brian S. Freeman.

Cpt. Freeman, who graduated from West Point in 1999, was a loving husband, father, Olympic caliber athlete and Army Civil Affairs team leader who actually cared about people regardless of who they were, where they came from, what God they worshiped, or their politics.

Thirteen years ago this month, Cpt. Brian Freeman and his team of Civil Affairs soldiers were in Karbala, Iraq at a meeting to help improve the lives of the people of that province. During that meeting, a team under the command of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, stormed in, killing a number of Americans, and capturing Brian and several members of his team. The captured CA team members were handcuffed, driven away from the meeting and later executed. Captain Freeman is but one of the multitude of lives lost due to the evil of Qassem Soleimani — whose end, regardless of the politics surrounding it, is a good thing.

For over two decades, Qassem Soleimani played a key role in orchestrating Iran’s foreign policy in the Middle East, particularly with regard to its use of proxy militia forces such as Lebanese Hezbollah, numerous Iraqi Shiite armed groups and the Houthi militia in Yemen. He directed the killing of more than 600 U.S. troops during the Iraq War by Shiite militias using lethal roadside bombs. Also killed alongside Soleimani was Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the leader of the violent Iraqi Shiite militia group Kataib Hezbollah

Those apologizing to Iran for Soleimani’s death are pandering to an oppressive regime out of either ignorance, moral bankruptcy, or in a callous attempt at self-promotion.

This is not a world apart from our daily lives.

In May 2011 SRAZ wrote,Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns,” describing the despicable alliance with Mexico. Unfortunately, the substantiating news links are no longer active. 

Readers will want to reacquaint themselves with this outrageous action taken by University of Arizona in August 2018:UofA pays radical Hezbollah-supporting Noam Chomsky, 89, $750k to teach “politics.” That’s where your excessive tuition and taxes go.

US Dept. of State upgrades Mexico travel warnings

December 21, 2019

In advance of holiday travel

The U.S. Department of State has upgraded its Mexico Travel Advisory as of December 17, 2019. Travelers are directed to read the entire Travel Advisory. The rankings of severity range from Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution to Level 3: Reconsider Travel; and include Level 4: Do Not Travel. Specific localities are named under each heading.

The advisory warns:

“Violent crime – such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery – is widespread. The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in many areas of Mexico, as travel by U.S. government employees to certain areas is prohibited or significantly restricted.”

A separate page titled, High-Risk Area Travelers, rigorously cautions: 

“Before you go to a high risk area,” Draft a will and designate appropriate insurance beneficiaries and/or power of attorney. Discuss a plan with loved ones regarding care/custody of children, pets, property, belongings, non-liquid assets (collections, artwork, etc.), funeral wishes, etc. Leave DNA samples with your medical provider in case it is necessary for your family to access them.

Crime is so rampant in Mexico, even the U.K.’s The Sun newspaper posted the U.S. State Department’s advisories.

Prof’s apt reply to ‘Person of the Year’ Greta Thunberg

December 15, 2019

Time Magazine recently named Greta Thunberg ‘Person of the Year.” The strident Swedish 16-year-old, who is traveling far too much to rightly be described as a school girl, (she is, in fact, a drop-out) is heralded for denouncing world leaders who don’t ascribe to her climate change activism, specifically omitting naming major polluters China and India while blasting the U.S. The financing of her global travels remains a mystery. Her insults shrilly barked from the platform oddly given her at the United Nations, were specifically hurled at the United States and our President Donald Trump. For this she has become the darling of the leftist media.

Thunberg encouraged worldwide student school strikes for climate and blasted United Nations representatives with her “How Dare You” speech — threatening, “We will not let you get away with this…we will never forgive you.” For this, she has become praiseworthy as the youngest Time honoree.

The issue of climate change, regarded as cyclical by many scientific experts, has been hijacked by anarchists and this arrogant teen afflicted with Asperger Syndrome who is the daughter of an opera singer and an actor. She commands international attention as she issues threats and accuses the U.S. and industrialized nations of “stealing my dreams.” Hatred of America, the most generous nation on the planet, is a guaranteed attention grabber.

Professor Jason D. Hill responds to Greta Thunberg with a brilliant commentary, titled,An Open Letter to Greta Thunberg: You are not a moral leader. But I will tell you what you are.”  Hill’s extensive credentials follow his open letter.

It was published on Front Page mag and is definitely worth your time.

Shining a dose of antiseptic sunlight on the magazine’s radical left perspective, Time itself notes its other finalists “were three people at the center of the impeachment proceedings against President Trump: the president himself, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the anonymous whistleblower whose complaint helped set the impeachment inquiry in motion.”

What a surprise.
