Black Lives Matter myth: Radicals condone violence

October 24, 2015

Black Lives Matter anarchists have no problem crashing meetings and brazenly disrupting dialogues to get their skewed message out. They took over the leftist Netroots Nation gathering in Phoenix in July, and demanded that Democrat presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley each acknowledge that only “Black Lives,” not “All Lives” matter. O’Malley was booed for making such a grand faux pas and apologized. 

Such weak acquiesce from the left only emboldens these subversive provocateurs. Within 48 hours of NYC police officer Randolph Holder, 33, being shot and killed Thursday by a bullet to his forehead, they were marching through the streets, chanting, “It is right to rebel, NYPD go to hell!” Both the officer and the murderer are black. This obscenity follows an earlier mantra, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” inciting violence against officers. Yet the hypocrites who have declared open warfare on police have no trouble accepting police protection for their demonstrations.

Last week in California, the group’s obstructive thugs grabbed the microphone from Los Angeles’ Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti, forcing him out of a Town Hall meeting with constituents. Outside, he was surrounded by a screaming mob, some of whom climbed on the Mayor’s car and stomped on the hood. No one was arrested.

The increasingly rabid activists most often target easily coerced white Democrats, who quickly fall in line.

The group’s issues are what they refer to as police brutality resulting in deaths of young black males and the need to lower incarceration rates. What is left unsaid is that the high death rates are most often gang related and the result of black-on-black gun violence.  Incarceration occurs, not in a vacuum, but when there is a conviction for criminal activity.

Now these radicals have the ear of Barack Obama, who struggles without his trusty teleprompter to justify their indefensible actions, (video) calling it a “legitimate issue we have to address and take seriously,” gratuitously throwing in the “tough job the police have.”

As Daniel Greenfield concludes in his well documented FrontPage mag report, “For black lives to really matter, black violence has to matter.”

Today we ask, where are the protests regarding this tragedy? Or this one that occurred in Tempe just days ago? Young black lives were put in grave danger or lost forever by parents who should provide the safest haven for their defenseless children. Black Lives Matter forgot about them.

Speaker Paul Ryan? Another conservative betrayal

October 21, 2015

Pro-amnesty Ryan supported by liberals   

Senate minority leader Harry Reid’s sloppy wet smooch to Paul Ryan shouldn’t be doing much good for Ryan’s aspirations to be anointed to succeed House Speaker John Boehner, whose limp tenure has been a colossal disappointment.

The liberal Nevada Democrat threw his support to Wisconsin Republican Ryan, saying he hopes Ryan runs and wins the job because he’s a “Paul Ryan fan.” According to Reid’s assessment,  Ryan “appears to me to be one of the people over there that would be reasonable.”

After being sold as a conservative and economic wizard as Mitt Romney’s 2012 Vice Presidential running mate, Ryan revealed himself to be a leading proponent of amnesty — a defining issue for a wide swath of grassroots GOP voters.

Pro-amnesty Democrat Harry Reid is not alone in supporting Ryan as House Speaker. Committed amnesty proponent and far left Illinois Congressman Luis Gutierrez, who worked with Ryan on amnesty legislation, has also thrown his support behind his candidacy.

Gutierrez has vouched for Paul Ryan with these troubling words, “I want you to know that in 2005 when Jeff Flake and I introduced a comprehensive immigration bill … and Kennedy and McCain was the first bipartisan, bicameral bill, Paul Ryan was an original co-sponsor of comprehensive immigration reform.”

Let that message sink in. No wonder status quo politicians are losing ground with frustrated voters.

On Tuesday Senate Democrats, led by Ryan enthusiast Harry Reid, blocked a vote on (S 2146), titled “Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act.” It was tied to a bill known as “Kate’s Law” named for San Francisco resident Kate Steinle who was shot and killed while walking on the pier with her father. The bill imposed a mandatory five-year prison sentence on any illegal convicted of an aggravated felony who returns to the U.S. after being deported. Democrats blocked Kate’s Law because it was attached to a provision to defund sanctuary cities, which the left steadfastly supports.

Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly addressed the issue with these words:

Foolishly, instead of simply voting straight up on Kate’s Law, the Senate put both pieces of legislation together. Everybody knew that would doom the vote, yet the Republicans did it anyway. That’s what makes Americans furious with the political system in Washington,” he said. “This is why Donald Trump and Ben Carson continue to lead in the Republican polling. A recent CNN poll has Trump at 27%, Carson at 22%, and no one else in double figures. Both Trump and Carson support Kate’s Law and would not play political games with it. There comes a point where the American people are going to have to take back their government. When a 32-year-old woman can be gunned down by an illegal felon who had been deported five times and you cannot get a strict law punishing illegal alien felons you really don’t have a functioning government.”

The first time conservatives get sand kicked in their faces, shame on the kickers. The successive times it happens, shame on the conservatives. Haven’t we dealt with enough deceit on the topic of the illegal invasion from Arizona’s senators McCain and Flake to have made us wary of the arrogant candidacy of Paul Ryan? Arizona’s Representatives need to hear from us ASAP. Their contact information is here.

Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam rally issues threats

October 11, 2015

Rallying cry: “Justice or Else”

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March, Nation of Islam organizer Louis Farrakhan themed Saturday’s march “Justice or Else.” 

What exactly does that threat mean?

In 1995 when the first march took place, Farrakhan won some praise for exhorting black men to take responsibility for improving themselves, their families and communities. But the underlying theme was blaming what he called “white supremacy” for “suffering in the black community.”

Farrakhan, now 82, is still a notorious race baiter and hate monger. He took up that same mantel yesterday on the National Mall in DC, denouncing what he referred to as the “white establishment,” saying, “Moses was not an integrationist and neither are we. Let me be clear. America has no future for you or for me. She can’t make a future for herself, much less a future for us.”

He spoke of passing the torch to the younger generation, specifically mentioning “Black Lives Matter,” as the “future leadership.”

“These are not just young people who happened to wake up one morning. Ferguson ignited it all,” he said. “So to all the brothers and sisters from Ferguson who laid in the streets, all the brothers and sisters from Ferguson who challenged the tanks, we are honored that you have come to represent our struggle and our demands.”

Farrakhan neglected to mention the looting and destruction of small, family owned businesses or the deception of the “Hands up, don’t shoot” mantra.  He neglected to mention marchers vilifying police as they shouted, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon.”  He didn’t talk about the tragedy of black-on-black murders making cities like Chicago resemble war zones. Missing from his racist diatribe was the fact that astronomical black out-of-wedlock births contribute to poverty, crime and high drop-out rates which sustain the terrible cycle. He was silent on the shouting down and silencing of a Democrat presidential candidate who was insensitive enough to say, “All Lives Matter,” and later apologized for his transgression.

America has twice elected a black president and Dr. Ben Carson, a black Republican neurosurgeon who rose up from the depths of poverty is riding high among white voters in the 2016 presidential polls.

Yet civil rights activist Benjamin Chavis, said, “There’s too much injustice, too much inequality, too much mass incarceration, too many situations in our community that need addressing, and that’s why we’re here today.”

Addressing problems needs to take place within black communities. Issuing threats and blaming others will not solve the systemic woes that keep the vicious cycle going. Involved parents, fathers in the home, stressing faith and the need for education will accomplish more than blaming and threatening. But reaching such goals is a lot tougher than spewing ill-placed vitriol.

Hillary: “Bordering” on McBehavior

October 9, 2015

Babeu, Clinton and McCain all shameless reruns

Almost six years ago, Arizona’s very senior U.S. Senator and the Pinal County Sheriff took a stroll along the Arizona-Sonora border. They were, of course, accompanied by TV cameras and campaign consultants.

Sheriff Paul Babeu and Señor Juan McAmnesty were unified in embracing the popular posture of border security, including the senatorial utterance, “Complete the danged fence!

The deceptive duo and Hillary Clinton have a lot in common; doing or saying whatever is politically expedient. As a member of Obama’s administration, Hillary continually praised the flawed Pacific Trade deal. CNN actually counted 45 times she pushed the scheme. But as a desperate candidate lagging in the polls, Hillary now opposes the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) she previously supported, prompting mocking responses from several of her Democrat presidential rivals.

All three of these hypocrites are once again candidates. McCain, who immediately after getting reelected, developed a case of amnesia regarding the fence and instead with his junior senator Jeff Flake, Marco Rubio and contingent of liberals McCain characterizes as “bi-partisans,” put together the amnesty pushing Gang of Eight. Though he will be 80 by Election Day, he’s running for yet another 6-year term.

Babeu shelved his previous congressional campaign when news of his gay romance with an illegal alien and photos he wished he never took, hit the news.  But Babeu is back in the First Congressional District race again, no doubt feeling “sophisticated” voters have become blasé to homosexual exploits since Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner has made such issues trendy.

Babeu’s border buddy McCain abandoned him last cycle after his house playing with now former beau Jose Orozco became too hot for the dodging codger. As he dithers in his dotage, McCain’s  mission is clear: to turn “the world’s greatest deliberative body” into “the nation’s most exclusive Senior Day Care Center,” to give him a place to wile away his time, no matter the consequence to Arizona or our nation. Babeu doubtless aims to one day play house while in the U.S. House.

Despite McCain’s notorious lapses in memory, his sense of political survival never leaves him, The only thing that exceeds that sense of survival is his own shameless hypocrisy. It was on display during that TV commercial in 2010, as he lied about legislation, lied about completing the fence, and established a non-border sheriff with a checkered past as a “border authority.”

A tough primary campaign and $30 million later, once safely re-elected McCain returned to his old ways as we had been warned, sponsoring amnesty for illegals with his infamous Gang of Eight. 

And Hillary? She’s now dancing to the two-step used by McCain in 2010. How else to explain her reversal on TPP? Regardless of her switchbacks on numerous  issues, there is one policy position that Hillary will never abandon— she is all in for amnesty. In fact, recent reports predict that illegal aliens who are illegally registered to vote in the U.S. may give her the margin of votes she needs to win the presidency. They will be joined by John McCain, who has called Hillary Clinton a “rock star” he could support.

Newcomers to Arizona’s political scene need this dose of truth. They won’t get it  in the local media.

Americans deliberately being mislead on economy

October 6, 2015

Just days ago, in a report titled, “Grim Jobs Report Is Likely to Delay a Move by the Fed on Rates,” the New York Times wrote of the unexpectedly dismal job growth last month casting a shadow on the nation’s economy.” The newspaper described Friday’s government report as sending analysts scrambling for adjectives like “dreadful,” “a body blow” and “grim” to describe just how disappointing they found the latest employment figures.

The U.S. Department of Labor oddly boasted that the jobless rate held steady at 5.1 percent in September — despite wage gains stalling, the labor force shrinking and employers creating far fewer positions than they had been averaging in recent months. The latest Employment Summary makes clear that American workers are still failing to take home the kind of monetary rewards normally expected from a recovery that has being going on for more than six years.

If the staggering economy were a patient, it would be on life support.

So why does the USAToday edition — tucked into the anorexic Arizona Republic in an effort to give it heft — report that the Army has hit its target for recruits in 2015, exceeding its goal, because “the improving economy has offered young men and women more job options….”

The obvious takeaway is that the lackluster economy offers few opportunities, lessening employment choices and causing youth, who might have other aspirations, to sign up for the military as they seek a steady income.

There appear to be major discrepancies in economic analysis among the sources. Then again, does anyone actually put any faith in the rosier numbers coming out of the Obama administration with Thomas Perez — the exceedingly left-wing and political former Assistant Attorney General in Obama’s DOJ — now in the position of Secretary of Labor? Here is Perez announcing his intention to sue Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, in a May 2012 news clip.

AZ Republic’s skewed “viewpoints” expose bias

September 28, 2015

Newspaper makes no effort to provide balance

Sunday’s edition of the Arizona Republic is a classic, rife with examples of the leftward lurch that underscores the entire failing publication. For the untutored reader it would be easy to mistake the page topping headlines “Viewpoints Sunday” and “Opinions” as vehicles delivering a variety of vantage points. That is obviously not the case.

There’s the requisite piece of open borders blather from Linda Valdez, the resident amnesty doyenne.  An Our Turn article titled “Focus on the Future” is the joint effort of two notable educrats, Sybil Francis (wife of Arizona State University’s overpaid president Michael Crow) and Lattie Coor, who preceded Crow as ASU president. The duo seeks to exert liberal influence within the state’s educational structure and beyond.

The expected piece of Arpaio bashing is front and center. This one dripping with sarcasm aimed at the sheriff and his office. Letters to the editor? Most sound as though they were crafted by the ASU’s Cronkite journalism students who have risen to jobs for which they are unqualified, as seasoned staffers grab their retirement and run — before the dam finally breaks. 

Focusing on the Question of the Week, under AZ Talk, the skew is irrefutable.  The question, “If Trump wins the Republican primary can he win the White House? “ is answered by each of four selected respondents with the first word emboldened and preceding a short explanation. There are two “No” answers, one “Never” and one “Maybe“. Of the four only one is a registered Republican. Listed under their names are their jobs, presumably intended to convey credibility. Two are either former or current teachers, one is a sculptor’s assistant, and another is described as a “community enthusiast.” 

Phil Boas, son-in-law of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the director of the Arizona Republic’s editorial pages. That means he oversees the constant barrage against his wife’s father and the grandfather of his kids. It’s a good bet he also has at least some authority over the type of questions asked and the selection of those who respond —  typically in lockstep — with the newspaper‘s bent. Conservatives should consider giving this guy a call and volunteering to provide their perspective on issues concerning us all. Phil Boas can be reached at 602-444-8292. No doubt he’d like to hear from you.

Trickery escalates at the Arizona Republic

September 21, 2015

Using intentionally imprecise words, Arizona’s newspaper of record toils at trying to influence its increasingly diminished base of readers.

Standing as a stark example is Sunday’s front page headline, topping the final installment of an eight-part series — the sole intent of which is to defeat Maricopa County’s popular Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The headline?  “As Arpaio considers a 7th bid for office, some say it’s time to go.”  Got that?  “Some say.”

The objective of an eight-part series is to encompass two weekends, since the withered readership includes a larger segment of Sunday only subscribers. Between now and the 2016 election, count on the fact that the Daily Insult will quote itself repeatedly as it desperately attempts to exert influence. Of course, those glory days when citizen voters stood in line at polling places with the newspaper’s endorsement list in hand, have long since passed. Now it’s far more likely that an endorsement will be the kiss of death for candidates and issues.

The left-wing, pro-amnesty-for-illegals newspaper which we often refer to as The Periódico de la República de Arizona, never lets facts get in the way of agenda. Its Open Borders Queen, Linda Valdez, takes up three-quarters of the editorial page with, ”10 immigration myths debunked.” In fact, she “debunked” nothing. But truth holds no relevance when it comes to opinion pieces passing themselves off as factual. The left-weighted newspaper ceased having an op-ed page or featuring opposing columnists years ago.

In order to remove the onus from invading Hispanics coming across our nation’s southern border, the folks at the Daily Insult solicited a local lawyer to write a lengthy piece about his family’s generational roots in Arizona facilitated by his illegal Chinese grandfather. According to the saga, the grandfather moved easily between China and the United States, returning to his homeland to find a bride and then slipping her in with him on a return trip. The author concludes by chastising the use of the term “anchor baby,” lecturing on the hardships illegals endure as they sneak into the U.S. 

Republicese is a language unto itself. Reading it takes patience and definitely the assistance provided by a Primer. We cheerfully provide, “A Primer: How to decipher Republicese,” which includes a link to the ever-popular “Lingo.”  The language of Newspeak, AP’s revised acceptable words can be found in, “Winston Smith: Alive and well at Associated Press.”

Be aware, the invasion now employs even more fanciful jargon with the words “migrants, undocumented, refugees, asylum seekers” replacing the now politically incorrect “illegal aliens” —  a term we will continue to use.

Though this revealing post was written in 2013, it includes links going back to 2008.
