AZ Republic peddles the fraud of moral relativism

August 22, 2016

In what is clearly not a coincidence, the Arizona Republic runs two articles a single day apart. Each deals with faith.  Article One, titled, “The Many Faces of One Faith,“ is three pages in length. The faith in question is Islam. The oversized quote accompanying the report is attributed to Hani Rahal, identified as Leader of Al-Mahdi Benevolent Foundation. His quote? “Many Americans are afraid of the unknown, they don’t know what Islam is.”

In fact, in recent years Americans have come to know what certain adherents of Islam tell us and show us it is.  No rational observer believes all Muslims follow such beliefs, though this National Review report, Obama’s Bad Math on Islamic Terrorism, is rife with disturbing polling data and specifics that give rise to suspicions. It also makes the point that Muslims are no more fundamentally bad than Christians or Jews. But it is not true, as Barack Obama has said, “99.9 percent of Muslims” reject Islamic terrorism. Obama’s 99.9 percent figure is demonstrably false. Pew Research has polled the issue extensively. In surveys of the Muslim populations of nine majority-Muslim countries, an average of 57 percent have an unfavorable view of al-Qaeda, not 99.9 percent. Thirteen percent have a favorable view of al-Qaeda, not 0.1 percent. 

Article Two in the Sunday edition uses an almost 90-year-old Holocaust survivor to make the point that she was hated merely for who she was. The horrors she endured have no relationship to mainstream American Muslims, though that is the point attempting to be made. The Nazis rounded up 6-million Jews and millions of others and sent them to death camps where they were starved and subjected to unspeakable atrocities, then gassed or put into ovens. American Muslims, described as being about 70 percent Democrat, live ordinary lives here. There are no parallels to 1930’s and 40’s Europe.

The elderly Holocaust victim was led down the Primrose Path by columnist Karina Bland, who specializes in midlife travails and was clearly over her head in making this moral equivalency on behalf of introducing individual Valley Muslims and their faith.

The differences are stark. European Jews did not commit heinous crimes in the name of God. They did not behead, bomb, drive massive trucks through crowds engaged in outdoor festivities with their children. They did not butcher or strap on suicide vests to randomly slaughter wedding attendees, shoppers or diners. They did not commandeer commercial airliners and fly them into skyscrapers. They did not hand out candy to their children as they celebrated wholesale slaughters, accompanied by joyful shouts of “Allahu Akbar!” which translates to “Allah is greater!”  — meaning Allah Is Greater Than Your God or Government. Robert Spencer of “Jihad Watch” provides a more complete explanation.

Islam is fundamentally different than the religions of Christianity or Judaism. Islam, the fastest growing worldwide, demands strict adherence to its precepts, which are often incompatible with our Constitutionally granted freedoms, since it seeks dominance. Tom Trinko at “American Thinker” provides an in-depth analysis in his column, Islam: Not Just a ReligionFor the Arizona Republic to use an elderly victim to try to convince us otherwise is reprehensible but understandable, as Obama opens America’s  floodgates to hundreds of thousands of unable to be vetted Muslim “refugees.”


McCain colluders Graham, Lynch set to scuttle Trump….& UPDATE

August 19, 2016

Update-tagEureka!  We Found AZ’s Elusive Presidential Electors

Although attempts to locate the names of those representing Arizona’s Republican voters as members of the 2016 Electoral College were dead ends, we finally located the following list. Since they were appointed by Arizona Republican Chairman Robert Graham, it would seem reasonable they would be proudly displayed on the AZ GOP website. They were not. He should have been happy enough with these McCain-supporting electors to have given them prominence. Why the secrecy?

The Arizona presidential electors are Foster Morgan of Glendale, Walter Begay of Kayenta, Bruce Ash of Tucson, Sharon Giese of Mesa, Jim O’Connor and Jerry Hayden of Scottsdale, and Robert Graham, Edward Robson, Joyce Carol, Alberto Gutier and Jane Lynch of Phoenix.

Politico runs a disturbing report regarding GOP Electoral College members stating they will not support Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee. Jane Lynch, an Arizona elector,is quoted as saying she’ll likely cast her personal vote for libertarian Gary Johnson or a write-in candidate.

In other words, Jane Lynch will be supporting Hillary Clinton. And why not?  Lynch was a founding member of the deceptively named Grassroots Arizona PAC, rife with out-of-state Obama donors, bent on taking out conservatives. Connect the dots. One of the initial donors to the PAC was Paul Hickman, who at the time was John McCain’s Arizona chief of staff. 

 “I don’t like the fact that I’m going to do this,” said Lynch regarding committing her electoral vote to Trump. The 75-year-old Lynch who has attended eight national Republican conventions affirmed her belief that there’s an increasing likelihood that Trump will lose Arizona to Hillary Clinton. 

“Bill Clinton did win Arizona in 1996,” she recalled. “So it’s not too far-fetched that Mrs. Clinton might win Arizona.” Lynch’s wishful thinking isn’t factoring in Obama fatigue, the ongoing scandals engulfing Hillary, her deteriorating health, the generational divide separating the Clinton candidacies, nearly $20 Trillion dollars in debt, the emergence of ISIS under her terms as Secretary of State, and the fact that Slick Willy was a more likable figure than Shrillary.

The President of the United States is not elected by popular vote but rather by electors in the Electoral College. In 2016, Arizona has 11 electoral votes. Arizona’s share of electoral votes represents 2 percent of the 538 electoral votes up for grabs in the general election and 4 percent of the 270 votes needed to be elected president. Electors of both the Republican and Democrat parties are selected by their party chairmen.

In the case of Jane Lynch, GOP chairman Robert Graham bears the responsibility for choosing a like-minded, known McCain ally, who gives lip service to Republican values, but turns decidedly squishy when backbone counts, like the aisle crossing, pro-amnesty maverick himself. The list of Arizona’s members of the 2016 Electoral College appears to be shrouded in secrecy, since numerous attempts to locate their names proved fruitless.

The conservative grassroots of the Republican Party are well aware of Robert Graham’s close ties to John McCain. Graham’s appointment of Lynch, whose stated intent to betray the Republican presidential candidate aligns with McCain’s ongoing betrayals of Republican principles. An abbreviated list of only a dozen such deceits can be read here. Memory refreshing is a good thing.


AZ Republic endorses McCain in deceitful editorial

July 29, 2016

Truth takes a hike as open border stance gets front and center treatment

The fact that the open border crew at the Arizona Republic endorsed amnesty advocate John McCain comes as no surprise. After over three decades in Washington, D.C. the 80-year-old liberal who has made a career of deceptively capitalizing on an “R” alongside his name, and is anathema to conservatives, is brazenly running for another six-year term.

What is surprising is that the newspaper doesn’t let facts get in the way of its agenda. Examples include the blatant falsehoods concerning two of McCain’s challengers. Front runner Dr. Kelli Ward, a family practice physician, is identified as having served “two years in the Arizona Senate.” It was actually four years — two terms that were two years each. It would seem anyone entrusted with writing a pre-election endorsement would be inclined to check these easily attainable facts. Is the sloppiness intentional or the hallmark of those who choose to diminish  experience? Being a state senator with a penchant for voting “present” nearly 130 times instead of taking a stance, was considered significant enough to springboard Barack Obama to the presidency.

In describing  Alex Meluskey, the editorialist calls him a “GOP Party activist.”  In fact, the primarily self-funded Meluskey was registered as a PND, Party Not Designated, prior to deciding to run for the U.S. Senate. When the newspaper wants to spin, it doesn’t allow pesky facts to get in its way.

The premise of the endorsement is that McCain is prepared to lead in a dangerous world. Aside from irrationally befriending Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi and assisting him in obtaining military weaponry. McCain tweeted out that after visiting him at his Libyan “ranch” the murderous dictator was “an interesting man.”

The editorial fails mention the fact that McCain has been censured by elected members of his own party at a statewide meeting. It omits his longtime association with George Soros, who has funded him since 2001.

Here is an example of McCain’s vast knowledge regarding Mideast turmoil.  McCain posing with ISIS terrorists, who he referred to as “freedom fighters.” Here he is in a 2008 CBS News clip speaking with reporters in Jordan and exhibiting abysmal ignorance of who the extremists and terrorists even are. He was immediately corrected by far more knowledgeable then-Sen. Joseph Lieberman while an obviously embarrassed Lindsey Graham hung his head. On the home front, here’s McCain exhibiting his disturbing lack of knowledge on economic matters.

The newspaper absurdly credits McCain with taking on the VA hospital scandal in which veterans were denied much needed care, resulting in needless deaths while administrators were paid astronomical salaries. It erupted right here in Arizona, under John McCain’s nose. He only reacted when it was politically expedient. McCain, who has served as a “legacy” adviser to Barack Obama,  is also a Second Amendment restrictionist.

This shocking video shows McCain’s abysmal  disconnect on a wide range of issues.

But in the end, it’s all about amnesty for illegals. Although McCain strolled the border with Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu and vowed to build the danged fence, immediately after being reelected, he spearheaded another attempt to push amnesty, with the Gang of Eight, including Jeff Flake, and a host of the most liberal members of the U.S. Senate. Though his word is worthless, the newspaper swoons into throes of McEcstasy actually referring to the marginal McCain as “a global figure.  One of the most influential people in in the world.”

John McCain has had his time and has been a dismal failure. Vote for conservative Dr. Kelli Ward.  It‘s past time for a change.

 


Religion of peace update: French priest beheaded celebrating mass

July 26, 2016

Siege comes amid shouts of “Allah Akbar”

ISIS savages stormed a Catholic Church in Normandy France during morning mass, beheading 84-year-old  priest Jacques Hamel. Several worshippers, including two nuns, were taken hostage in the gruesome, bloody attack. An alert was initially issued by a third nun who escaped from the church. The UK’s Daily Mail carries a complete report.

Security sources confirmed one of the murderers was a convicted terrorist who was being monitored with an electronic tag, and inexplicably had been released by a court to serve his sentence living with his parents.

President Francois Hollande, whose country has suffered numerous deadly attacks, said ISIS had declared war on France. The time has come for France and the entire civilized world to declare war on ISIS — not refrigerators and air-conditioning which U. S. Secretary of State John Kerry says present a greater threat.


No wonder John Kerry doesn’t visit AZ in July

July 26, 2016

On a trip to Vienna this past weekend, Secretary of State John Kerry — a global warming devotee — said the threats posed by air conditioners and refrigerators are on par with Islamic terrorism. 

No wonder he hasn’t graced the great state of Arizona with his presence. He must have heard the temperatures are routinely in the triple digits throughout the summer. He’d have a problem not using the air in his luxury hotel suite and limousine.

Kerry, it should be remembered, entered into a disastrous nuclear enrichment deal with America-hating Iranians, on behalf of Barack Obama. To sweeten the agreement — which removes sanctions against the hostile regime and ultimately enables Iran to become a nuclear power — the U.S. has made available $1 billion in frozen assets. After the initial part of the deal was cut, the Iranian dictator led mobs in chants  of death to the United States! Heritage has a fact-filled report.

But in John Kerry’s world, it’s those dastardly refrigerators and air conditioners we have to worry about. ISIS murderers aren’t the threat to the civilized world.  His talking points are those of Barack Obama. 

This is Barack Obama’s take (brief video) on the ISIS inspired violence that has invaded Western Europe and the United States at breakneck speed on a nearly daily basis.

 

 


Jeff Flake, John & Meghan McCain: In the tank for Hillary

July 24, 2016

These Republicrat Arizonans put liberals to shame

In this congratulatory tweet, Jeff Flake was unable to contain his glee over liberal Democrat Hillary Clinton’s selection of Tim Kaine as her Vice Presidential running mate. Flake has already made his opposition to Republic standard-bearer Donald Trump abundantly clear.  In fact, the vacuous Flake who seized on opposition to earmarks as his congressional launching pad sounds very much like one casting his lot with Hillary though she never saw a spending scheme she didn’t support. Flake would, of course, be following his mentor John McCain, who referred to Clinton as a “rock star” he could support.

Where do you think the Flake’s vote will go? John McCain’s? The duo partnered on crafting the pro-amnesty for illegals ‘Gang of Eight’ as they colluded with such liberals as Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin. Marco Rubio, unable to defend his participation, suffered a blistering defeat in his presidential bid due to his involvement in this unholy contrivance.

According to the Daily Caller, McCain and Flake are in a race for the least popular senator in the nation prize. McCain polled at 30% and Flake was even lower at 27% among Arizona voters.

Meghan McCain speaking with People magazine said she cried when Donald Trump officially won the Republican nomination for president at the GOP convention on Tuesday. But hers were not tears of joy. The daughter of failed presidential candidate John McCain called the vote to nominate Trump a “garbage election,” and Donald Trump a “garbage candidate,” not representative of her view of the Republican Party.

Obviously familiar with an actual “garbage candidate,” she only registered as a Republican as a Father’s Day surprise for her dad whose disastrous candidacy gave us eight years of Barack Obama.  Now that qualifies as garbage — worthy of crying over.


Why the disconnect in reporting Islamic terrorism?

July 23, 2016

Obama in a permanent dissociated state

Friday we watched in horror as news networks reported an assassin’s rampage through a shopping mall in Munich, Germany — slaughtering shoppers and specifically targeting teens at a McDonald‘s. At last report, 9 were dead and 27 wounded, some critically. He used an online ruse of free food to specifically lure the victims.

The same news sources were quick to point out — lacking any definitive evidence — that it was unlikely the cold-blooded murderer was an ISIS related terrorist. We were told “the motive remains unclear.”

Later the UK’s Daily Mail quoted witnesses as saying the gunman identified himself as German and screamed “Allahu Akbar” before the massacre — the two-word Allah praising calling card of the radical Muslim cowards who casually take the lives of innocent strangers with the intent of terrorizing Westerners. The 18-year-old assassin, who turned his weapon on himself,  held dual Iranian and German citizenship.

This is Barack Obama’s take (brief video) on the ISIS inspired violence that has invaded Western Europe and the United States at breakneck speed on a nearly daily basis.

In criminal cases defense attorneys representing those accused of heinous crimes have occasionally claimed the defendants were in a dissociated state when they committed their vicious acts. In a notorious trial in Phoenix predating O.J. Simpson’s, that defense was successfully used, when the murderer claimed to be sleepwalking as he repeatedly stabbed his wife to death.

Barack Obama’s disconnect when he says, “The world is less violent than it has ever been,” makes it clear he’s been sleepwalking through the past 8 years of his presidency, unable to utter the words “jihad” or “radical Muslim extremist,” in the face of ample evidence to the contrary.
