Selective news coverage fuels race-based riots

September 24, 2016

Skewing the news has consequences

The shooting of Keith Lamont Scott by a police officer in Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday has fueled riots and looting by vandals. We have repeatedly witnessed such incidents used as an excuse for violent, marauding gangs to take to the streets to steal and destroy property as they ostensibly protest police.

Gov. Pat McCrory was forced to declare a state of emergency. Several hundred members of the N.C. National Guard and State Highway Patrol troopers were sent to Charlotte to maintain order after ongoing violence. Obama’s U.S. Justice Department sent Community Relations Service staffers who specialize in communities in crisis to Charlotte. Numerous businesses advised employees to work from home to avoid the hazards.

Scott, 43, a black man, was fatally shot Tuesday afternoon. The officer who shot him, Brentley Vinson, 26, is also black.

According to the newspaper account, police said Scott held a handgun as he got out of a car, though others claimed he was merely reading a book. Police said they found a gun but no book at the scene.

It took thirteen reporters at the Charlotte Observer to write this account of events. Which of them, we wonder, decided it was appropriate to have readers wade through 29 paragraphs before revealing the 26-year-old officer involved in the shooting is also black? If the officer who fired the fatal shots was white, it would have been in the headline and first paragraph. Why was there no mention of Kevin Scott’s lengthy criminal history which would rightfully make the officer wary?

What does the grotesque practice of looting and destruction of other people’s property have to do with protests? Drugstores, hotels, restaurants, the NASCAR Hall of Fame, an entertainment complex and even the United Way building were among multitudes of properties ransacked and vandalized.

Gateway Pundit reveals the intricacies of the Democrat Machine at work in the rioting and the Black Lives Matter thuggery.  Black Trump supporter Taurus Rachel calls out Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and McCain funder George Soros.  Powerline exposes the criminal history of Kevin Scott, blandly described in newspaper accounts as a kindly father of seven. The articles are well worth your time.


September 11, 2001: Have we already forgotten?

September 11, 2016

Shameful actions of NFL players need to be dealt with — by vanishing fans

 Each year we commemorate the unspeakable horrors that shook America to her core on the clear autumn morning fifteen years ago today. Nearly 3,000 people were murdered by 19 Islamic terrorists in the U.S. on expired visas who commandeered two commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City. A third flew into the Pentagon. The death toll included 40 passengers and crew members aboard the fourth hijacked plane, United 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as courageous passengers rushed the cockpit. Along with our American citizens, people from 90 other countries were massacred in the attacks.

We also remember the orchestrated attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012 — resulting in the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Ty Woods, Sean Smith and Glen Doherty, which then-Secretary of State attempted to blame on a “spontaneous event” following a fabricated video defaming Muhammad.

In 2009, Army Major and Fort Hood psychiatrist, Dr. Nidal Hasan, who refers to himself as a “soldier of Allah” opened gunfire on the base killing 14 (including an unborn baby) and wounding more than 30 others. Though Hasan called out “Allahu Akbar!“ (Allah is greater) the Obama administration refused to acknowledge the terrorist aspect, foolishly referring to the murders as “workplace violence.”

The 2013 Boston Marathon bombings that maimed and killed innocents on a spring morning were perpetrated by Chechen immigrant brothers motivated by extremist Islamic beliefs.

In 2014 depraved decapitations of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff shook our sensibilities —- as was the intent via the grotesque videos posted by the jihadist executioners. These victims followed Daniel Pearl, a Wall Street Journal reporter savagely executed in the same manner in 2002. In the intervening years, other Americans have met that grisly fate. 

During 2015 the civilized world  witnessed mass beheadings and the burning alive of a caged Jordanian pilot. Some of the beheadings were carried out by children under the guidance of their own fathers, indoctrinating depravity in the name of Allah.

The perpetrators of these unspeakably evil acts are fanatical and murderous international thugs who literally follow the Quran’s 47:4 directive to “strike the necks” of unbelievers. Obviously, ISIS represents the worst of Islam, but few American Muslims raise their voices against either the butchery or the threats of devastation to our homeland and inflicting havoc on American cities.

Yet Americans have witnessed the Obama administration’s capitulation to the terror sponsoring regime of Iran by accelerating their nuclear capabilities. At the same time we are fed distorted intelligence reports giving a glossier version of U.S. progress against al Qaeda and the Islamic State — foolishly referred to as a “JV team” by Obama —  than is reflected by reality. Fortunately our Constitution ensures presidential term limits.

What there are no term limits on is ignorance. As Americans commemorate the victims of the September 11, 2001 depravity, overpaid NFL football players, with no real concept of how fortunate they are to be Americans or what the day represents, are using the somber occasion to stage protests by refusing to stand for our national anthem in a show of solidarity with the BLM movement that was founded in the lie of “Hands up, don’t shoot!”  The fallacious charge of racial inequality is also exemplified by the preponderance of black players with $ multimillion contacts, though there are no protests from the white minority players.

If the planned protests go foreword, patriotic Americans should stage their own demonstrations and boycott the teams. The old line money talks and BS walks applies in this instance. Constitutional lawyer, author and talk show host Mark Levin makes the case — covered by CNS News — that this is not a freedom of speech issue.


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, Carol Joyce, 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.
