Still using Google, Facebook? It’s time to stop

July 19, 2019

These companies are not benign. They are enemies of conservative thought and actively suppress it

Earlier this week, conservative talk radio host Dennis Prager testified before the U.S. Senate on big tech’s suppression of free speech. His powerful opening statement can be viewed here.

Prager, the founder of Prager University a popular series of 5-minute online discussions by various authorities on myriad topics, and viewed well over 2 billion times, knows his subject well. Though an orthodox Jew, he has been called a Nazi by Google execs who have even suppressed his discussion of the Ten Commandments, allegedly because the wordmurderis used. 

Facebook also engages in this suppression of free speech, as reported by Bre Payton for The Federalist.

Dr. Robert Epstein, a research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology and author, was a guest on Dennis Prager’s nationally syndicated radio show yesterday. He says Google’s massive surveillance capabilities helped shift 2 to 3 million votes in Hillary Clinton’s favor with bias search algorithms. He has been working on large scale monitoring “to detect manipulations on the part of these tech companies.” Epstein, self described as “center-center left” and an admitted “Hillary Clinton supporter,” says he testified before Congress because he “values his country and democracy more than he values any party or candidate.”

Epstein has written in numerous publications describing the serious threats posed by Google and Facebook.

AZ Rep. Paul Gosar blasts Green Card scheme

July 13, 2019

Principled AZ Congressmen Paul Gosar and Andy Biggs stand firm for American tech workers

On Friday SRAZ covered the collusion of Congressional Republicans who aligned with leftist Democrats inUS job giveaway bizarrely garners GOP support.” We once again provide the House vote on HR 1044, the deceptively titled bill bearing the name, “Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act.” In short, it replaces American tech workers with Green Card holders, predominantly from India.

Breitbart News has relentlessly reported on this sham. Most recently, John Binder wrote: 

“This week, 140 House Republicans, 224 House Democrats, and Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI*) — led by Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — voted to allow Indian nationals to effectively monopolize the U.S. green card system for at least the next ten years, providing a constant stream of foreign workers that American professionals will be forced to compete against for white-collar jobs.”

Worthy of note to Arizonans is the headline topping the article:Exclusive–Paul Gosar: GOP/Dems Gifting Tech Elites More Foreign Labor to Replace Americans.” We highly recommend you read it. It’s chock full of facts, but it will also imbue you with an added dose of pride in CD 4 Congressman Paul Gosar, interviewed for the report. Of Arizona’s four remaining Republican U.S. House members, only Reps. Paul Gosar and Andy Biggs had the fortitude to stand up to the House leadership and tech lobbyists, pushing this unholy scheme.

Americans who have been laid off and forced to train their foreign H-1B visa replacements say there is “no shortage” of qualified U.S. workers for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) jobs.

We’ve been had — aided and abetted by GOP colluders.

* Amash, going for explosive coverage, left the Republican Party on the Fourth of July this year, becoming a registered Independent. The former McCain campaign donor has advocated for the impeachment of President Trump.


Of course, Census citizenship question matters*

July 6, 2019

U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts mimics Sandra Day O’Connor, Anthony Kennedy as swing vote

On Friday, the Justice Department said it will continue researching for legal grounds to include a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. Earlier President Trump said he is “very seriously” considering an executive order to get the question on the form.

Although the Dems are hard at work attempting to politicize it, the issue of incorporating the citizenship question on the U.S. Census form, has far reaching ramifications that affect us all.

Congressional districts are apportioned based on the number of voting citizens as opposed to residents.

The Hill released the findings of a Hill-HarrisX survey conducted in late April, showing 60% of Americans support having the citizenship question included on the census form. Support cut across all demographics.

The U.S. Census Bureau explains the history of place of birth, citizenship, year of entry questions, noting the citizenship question originated with the 1820 Census, place of birth originated with the 1850 Census, and year of entry originated with the 1890 Census. In 2005, the USCB transferred to the American Community Survey replacing the decennial census long form.

The citizenship question should not be controversial. Most nations ask it, including Mexico and Canada. The United Nations recommends the practice. The United States previously asked about citizenship as well, but since 1950 the question has not been included in the census forms that most people receive. (A much longer, more detailed questionnaire sent to a small sample of households chosen at random includes the question, which has not previously been a hotly debated topic revving up the ACLU and Democrat presidential candidates until the advent of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Last week, a divided Supreme Court — with Chief Justice John Roberts disappointingly swinging left again and joining four Democrats — ruled that the Trump administration’s stated reason for including a question about citizenship on the 2020 census — to help the Department of Justice better enforce federal voting rights laws — was a pretext. The “evidence,” Chief Roberts wrote, “tells a story that does not match the explanation that” Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross provided. The case has been sent back to the Department of Commerce.

Justice Clarence Thomas, in a dissent joined by Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, wrote that Ross’ decision “was legally sound and a reasoned exercise of his broad discretion.”

When his vote holds massive and long-ranging implications such as with the 2012 opinion upholding Obamacare, Roberts caves.

President Trump said his administration is exploring a number of legal options, including issuing an executive order which have been used by all presidents — with Bill Clinton topping the list at 364.

Remembering our many blessings, obligations this Independence Day

July 4, 2019

 ….and honoring those 56 brave men* who had the vision and strength of character to challenge authority and affix their signatures to the Declaration of Independence.

Before signing the Declaration of Independence, our Founders included this memorable line:

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

* Click on each Declaration signer’s name for a brief biography.

On this momentous holiday, we gift our readers with,This Fourth of July, why patriotism is worth defending,” by Kyle Smith — a New York Post columnist whose engaging style and reasoned approach has made him a newly found favorite. Do yourself a favor and get acquainted with his take on popular culture and politics.

Smith’s unique background includes serving as a lieutenant in the U.S. Army during the Persian Gulf War, and with the Second Armored Cavalry Regiment in Saudi Arabia. He graduated summa cum laude from Yale.

This recent Gallup Poll indicates the level of pride in America has plummeted among our own citizens, with only 22% of Democrats saying they are “extremely proud,” down 10 points in one year. For their part, most Republicans have remained extremely proud of our country, though the latest 76% reading is 10 points below the high recorded in 2003. Even when Barack Obama was in office, Republicans’ extreme pride never fell below 68%.

Still, these latest numbers are catastrophic in a country that stands as a beacon of freedom to the world. They are indicative of the media’s extreme anti-Trump sentiment and the fact that the radical hippies who spat on our returning Vietnam vets have permeated our educational establishment, disparaging our history and negatively influencing successive generations.  To ensure our nation’s survival, history and patriotism must be taught at home.

Dying AZ Republic heralds newsroom diversity quotas

July 3, 2019

The harsh truth for many of us who grew up following the news, is journalism Is dead. Victor Davis Hanson, writer extraordinaire, provides the stark reality in his illuminating column,Journalism is Dead—Long Live the Media!posted on American Greatness. The entire column is a worthy read, though we have lifted two paragraphs as we zero in on the affront that appeared in Arizona’s pathetic excuse for a newspaper.

First, Hanson:

“Concerning the three great psychodramas of the last two years—the Kavanaugh hearings, the Covington kids fiasco, and the Jussie Smollett fantasy—the media for too long trafficked in the lies of the discredited and predicated their coverage on ideology: feminists, Native Americans, and African-Americans as noble victims; their white male oppressors not so much, regardless of the actual facts of the case.

During the Duke lacrosse team mess, the University of Virginia fraternity hoax, and the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin drama the public first began to sense the old implicit media bias had become something new—an outright distortion of evidence to serve a higher cause. We are now at the point that the news consumer has little expectation that journalists will report the facts, but assumes that they will massage, distort, and misrepresent narratives for purposes of supposed social utility.”

Next, the failing, left-leaning Arizona Republic:

The homeless, skeletal semblance of its former self after massive layoffs, relying on editor-less ASU Cronkite students working out of their cars, dependent on McDonald’s wi-fi — treats readers to an embarrassing half-page editorial.

Greg Burton, a new hire as executive editor, unashamedly exposes the truth that drives the newsroom.  If you guessed news, you’re off by a country mile. It’s diversity! The actual title?

From our executive editor: We’re dedicated to improving newsroom diversity – and have the numbers to prove it.”  Seriously.

To Burton, gender and ethnicity trump (oops!) competency. He lists the percentages of “women and people of color” the newspaper has hired, promoted and added to the management ranks, while acknowledging the many personnel loses as subscriptions have plummeted. Burton continues, “We’ve dedicated ourselves to improving diversity as we recruit and retool. In 2018 and 2019, we rebuilt the newsroom to 30% people of color. As I write this, we’re at 31%.”

His offensive premise is only “people of color” can relate to “other people of color.” Following that brilliance to it’s logical conclusion, as an imperfect white male, Burton should be jobless again in record time. 

According to Feb. 2019 numbers provided by Statista, only 32% of United States’ adults trust the news media most of the time. The U.S. was among the several countries where less than 35 percent of survey respondents considered news media generally trustworthy, ranking close to Malaysia, Taiwan and Slovakia.

The Arizona Republic’s new executive editor Greg Burton provides a clue for the lack of trust. If reporters are hired to fill quotas based on their melanin/skin pigment and whether they sit or stand in the bathroom, clearly readers are held in similar disregard. That could be added to the long list of why there are so few left.

He concludes with this deceitful though pitiable pitch: “Know this about The Republic: We’re here to produce and deliver great journalism, and to reflect the community we serve. If you’re not a subscriber, join us at (provides the subscription address).” We’re betting there won’t be a rush to take him up on the invitation to support the shrunken, overpriced, Hillary endorsing rag that values diversity over veracity.


Americans benefit having businessman Trump in WH

July 2, 2019

Historic economic expansion ignored by Trump-hating, leftist Arizona Republic

Sensational economic news gets the coverage it deserves in the New York Post —  a publication founded in 1801 by Alexander Hamilton, the first Secretary of the U.S. Treasury.

The Post’s Editorial Board made this acknowledgement Monday:

President Trump has now gotten the US economic expansion to outlast any other in modern history.

As of Monday, growth has rolled along for 121 months straight, starting in June 2009. The now-second-longest expansion ran from March 1991 to March 2001. The new record is also over twice the 58 months of the average expansion since 1980.

All of which means that, even with the weakness of the growth for most of the Obama era, the economy was overdue for a dip when Trump took office. Yet it has instead remained pretty strong, expanding 2.9% in 2018 and at an annual 3.1% for the first quarter of 2019.

Unemployment has fallen steadily, too, to its lowest level in 50 years: In May, the seasonally adjusted rate was 3.4%, down from 5.1% in January 2017. Job openings in April topped the number of unemployed by the widest margin ever, and the tight labor market has fueled wage hikes.

Trump’s deregulation and tax cuts, each a stark reverse of Obama policies, changed the course. As Bankrate senior economist Mark Hamrick told The Post, the president unleashed America’s “animal spirits,” boosting the stock market and consumer confidence. (The S&P 500 and the Dow hit record highs Monday, on news of a truce in the US-China trade war.)

And growth has “lifted all boats,” notes Hamrick. Despite the Democratic line, the “1%” are far from the only ones to gain. Federal Reserve data show that pay hikes these past three years surged faster for the poorest quarter of workers (4.4%) than for the richest (3.2%).

Blue-collar employment is also up big since January 2017: 657,000 new construction jobs and 484,000 more in manufacturing. And joblessness among blacks fell from 7.7% in January 2017 to 6.2% in May.

Nothing lasts forever, but when the economy does finally turn south, it’s well worth remembering which policies delivered the record results.

In an in-tandem report in the same edition, titled,US economy marks longest expansion in American history,” we are doubly treated to the news the Hillary Clinton-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper is loath to report. The NY Post endorsed “rookie” Trump, described as having “electrified the public” in the 2016 Primary, making no endorsement in the General Election.
