NFL player’s union deep connections to radical George Soros

October 7, 2017

The Washington Times runs a stunning headline you’d never see in the left-of-center, Hillary Clinton endorsing Arizona Republic:NFL players’ union teamed up with Soros to fund leftist advocacy groups.”

 The information it delivers provides the back story to much of the anti-American political activism that has shocked fans and turned many away from the games. SRAZ would do a disservice to the superb reporting of Valerie Richardson if we attempted to synopsize her in-depth article so we direct our readers to linked article, which includes links to tax documents.

Socialist billionaire George Soros, who disdains national sovereignty and borders, funds multiple front groups to forward his agenda which also included anti-Trump advocacy beginning prior to President Trump’s election.

Soros’ impact, in the form of heavyweight monetary contributions, has affected the National Football League. Viewership is down appreciably since the NFL made the decision to unify in support of disrespecting our National Anthem and flag, as players “take the knee” rather than standing in respect for the symbols of freedom. NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” numbers in the first two weeks of the regular season fell 7% in viewership compared to last year. ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” is down 5%; and the averages of Sunday afternoon games on Fox and CBS are down 11% and 19% respectively, according to Nielsen data. CBS hasn’t yet had a 4:25 p.m. national game this season, which usually accounts for the principal viewership of the weekend.

Brian Hughes, a senior vice president at Magna, which monitors audience trends, would like us to believe Hurricane Irma impacted viewership during the NFL’s first week.

If blaming hurricanes doesn’t work for you, Hughes provides another excuse: blaming fan inability to concentrate. It’s our mindlessness, rather than the grossly overpaid players offensive attitude that is responsible for the steep declines.  “In general people’s attention spans have changed,” Hughes said. “There’s evidence that people are intensely interested in fewer things and generally interested in more things, and I think that’s a function of deluge of content that we are finding ourselves in nowadays.”

We’re not as incapable of walking and chewing gum at the same time as Hughes would presume. In fact we were able to locate DiscoverTheNetwork.Org’s Guide to the Political Left detailing George Soros Connections, listing his myriad front groups, established to impose his Socialist agenda and disrupt order in the United States.

In the event you missed it, SRAZ detailed the John McCain and Hillary Clinton connection in a Feb. 2016 post titled, “By George! McCain & Hillary have a lot in common.”  Soros also funneled money to Democrat Paul Penzone who defeated popular 6-term Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Politico, in a concerning report revealed that Soros is quietly working behind the scenes to fund a massive overhaul the U.S. Justice system.

Keep your eye on the ball, folks. Our future depends on it.

Fed. Judge dismisses charges against former sheriff Joe Arpaio

October 5, 2017

Following the presidential pardon of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton has dismissed a guilty verdict against him.

U.S. Department of Justice lawyers and Arpaio’s defense team requested the dismissal. Arpaio had been found guilty in July of misdemeanor criminal contempt for “flagrant disregard” of a judge’s order. He faced up to 6-month’s incarceration.

Bolton had denied Arpaio the jury trial he requested, opting to sit as both judge and jury herself. Joe Arpaio was an immensely popular sheriff, having been elected to an unprecedented 6-four-year terms.

Relentless, in-tandem, daily attacks by the local newspaper’s editorial board, columnists, reporters and cartoonist, coupled with the infusion of $ 2 million pumped into the campaign of Arpaio’s Democrat challenger Paul Penzone by Socialist billionaire George Soros, proved too much for the respected sheriff to overcome. Politico reports Soros is on a mission to overhaul the U.S. criminal justice system to fit his radically left-wing ideal. In a display of gratitude to his benefactor, Penzone entered office by referring to illegal invaders as “guests.”

The charges against Arpaio, which many viewed as the culmination of a witch hunt, stemmed from his office’s enforcement of the law relating to illegal immigration. Arpaio had not yet been sentenced when the president issued the pardon in August.

Denied the perp walk and mug shot that was always the newspaper’s end game, it greeted the news of the dismissal with a small two sentence front page report, continuing with a jump to a page 10. The Diamondbacks victory over the Rockies dominated Page One, complete with an oversize photo of the game’s relief pitcher. The Arizona Republic’s despair is palpable.

Arpaio is quoted as saying, “I’m happy the conviction was dismissed, especially since I am not guilty.” He also praised President Trump, saying, “It took me 85 years to find my hero and it’s the president of the United States.”

Classic Joe.

We join Arizona’s law-abiding citizens in wishing him well.


Constitution Day: US exceptionalism unappreciated by thugs

September 17, 2017

The use of the term “American exceptionalism,” can be traced to Alexis de Tocqueville who, in the mid 1800s, described the United States as “exceptional” based on his admiration of our founding principles of freedom and liberty, rugged individualism, and free enterprise. In 1835, he was moved to write the multi-volume Democracy in America.

President Ronald Reagan spoke of America as “a land of hope, a light unto nations, a shining city on a hill.” Recent news has marred those lofty and inspiring words. We live in a time when chronically aggrieved people revere victim status. Raised with liberal dosages of moral relativism in public schools, they take exception to defining America as exceptional since in their view, there are no better or worse standards or governments. All entities are equivalent and everything should be tolerated.

The recent headlines are troubling. Black Lives Matter mobs and their claque engage in days of violence as they protest an acquittal in the case of a white former St. Louis police officer fatally shooting a black drug dealer following a high speed chase in 2011. Their motivation for rioting is raced based, without hearing the evidence presented in court. Three police officers responding to thugs breaking windows, setting fires and throwing paint at the home of the mayor were transported to a hospital after being hit by bricks and rocks hurled at them. One officer was hit in the head and suffered a broken jaw. 

After shutting down a major highway, hundreds of hooligans stormed an upscale mall breaking windows, and chanting an anti-capitalist threat, “No Justice, No Profits!” KDSK TV-5 reporter Jason Long tweeted “almost every storefront in the Loop is destroyed.”

U2 cancelled a sold out Saturday night St. Louis concert in the wake of the riots, issuing this statement. The St Louis Symphony Orchestra canceled its Friday and Saturday performances.

The U.S. Constitution gives these thugs First Amendment protections. Where else on earth could they chaotically disrupt the lives of others without consequence? Arrests were in response to violence and assaults. Their freedom to assemble, disrupt and spew their vitriol is enshrined.

For those of us who are grateful for the blessings of living in this exceptional nation, Hillsdale College offers a free and enlightening course on the Constitution. Hillsdale titles it, “Study the greatest political document ever written by man that secures your freedom.”

Sign up. It’s guaranteed to make you more knowledgeable than the entire gang of marauders could ever hope to be.

The Law Library of Congress provides a historical overview of Constitution and Citizenship Day.

May God continue to bless America.

 


Illegal advocates demand cash, firing of Motel 6 employees

September 16, 2017

Some Motel 6 locations in the Valley have been accused of cooperating with local law enforcement, turning in the names of guests whose ID given to the desk clerk — such as Mexican voter ID cards or driver’s license — appears to indicate they are here illegally.

As sure as day follows night, the protests begin. The pro-amnesty, open border newspaper Periódico de la República — alternatively known as the Arizona Republic,  headlined, “Phoenix leaders demand Motel 6 fire employees who gave customer names to ICE.”

Those “leaders,” quickly assembled Friday to march and demand a boycott of all Motel 6 locations. They said the boycott should continue until the employees they suspect of involvement are fired. What they are accused of doing is not illegal. The shortsighted “activists” aren’t taking into consideration that a boycott would displace Hispanic maids and laborers employed by the motels.

Their actions bring to mind the economic boycott of the entire state of Arizona called for in 2010 by radical leftist AZ CD-3 U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva  (his background included under link) as a protest against SB 1070. Using the signature Alinskyite tactics of the community organizer he once was, the law had to be fought at “a political, legal and economic level,” he said. 

Grijalva remained indifferent to the fact that his actions would displace Mexicans who work in the hospitality industries. The cameras were not on them, they were focused on him, just as mics were thrust toward his face to catch his every word. The headiness of the attention captured Grijalva’s ego and unconcerned his Hispanic constituents, in his specially carved out ethnic majority district, would end up in the unemployment line.

And Motel 6? Its corporate management tweeted this conciliatory statementwhich of course, wasn’t good enough since there was no financial payout involved.

Protesters demanded the company must provide monetary compensation to the illegal families whose members faced deportation proceedings.

“We are going to fight back,” said Viri Hernandez, director of the Center for Neighborhood Leadership, a pro-immigrant advocacy group.  (Read that to include the word ‘illegal’ before immigrant) “And we’re going to make sure our economic power is not going to you. So for our community, [sic] clear message: It’s time to boycott Motel 6.”


Fake News leaps front and center in AZ Republic report

August 30, 2017

Newspaper’s liberal, anti-Pres. Trump, Joe Arpaio agenda at work

The topic of fake news has been grabbing our attention since candidate, now President Donald Trump, made a point of exposing the chicanery. It’s a compelling issue, and when it emanates from the local newspaper, as it does with regularity, it‘s repugnant.  Although the Hillary-endorsing, pro-amnesty for illegal aliens Arizona Republic has been a leftwing tool for years, that was not always the case. Politics invading what passes for straight news reporting — once known as journalism and viewed as dependable — makes readers wary of anything they read within the increasingly slim pages.

A case in point, excerpted from the newspaper:

“More than 150 people rallied outside the Sandra Day O’Connor United States Courthouse Tuesday afternoon to protest President Donald Trump’s pardon of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The protest was mostly composed of current and former judges and lawyers — even a Republican former attorney general.”

To give a note of drama to this escapade, this fiction-like bit was added to the report:

“They gathered on the lawn at 4th Avenue and Washington Street, as temperatures climbed well above 100 degrees, huddling for shade under the slender trees planted there or beneath umbrellas they’d bought.”

Obviously leftwing lawyers “huddling for shade under slender trees” in the August midday heat, is intended to conjure up a poignant image, but falls far short.

The article names two participants and the ringleader of the protest. They all have one thing in common, a proclivity to lean left.  The lawyer/instigator of the group, William Hardin, is a registered Democrat. The identified appellate court judge is long retired Noel Fidel — another Democrat, appointed to the bench in 1986 by hard-left governor Bruce Babbitt. The “Republican former attorney general’ is none other than RINO show boater Grant Woods, who has threatened to leave the Republican Party but like a spoiled child seeking attention, he knows such a move would render him flaccid as an attraction. He revels in the attention he gets being able to display his liberalism, while cloaked as a Republican.

Woods is quoted stating, “Neither Trump nor Arpaio are true conservatives,” as if he‘d know a conservative if he met one. Woods added, Trump was incorrect in saying the former sheriff was well-liked in Arizona. “The sheriff was taken out of office by the voters,” he said. “He lost big. Bigly.”

What Woods neglects to mention as he creates words like a four-year-old, is that Sheriff Arpaio was defeated by Paul Penzone, thanks to the $millions of dollars funneled to his campaign by socialist billionaire George Soros who abhors sovereign national borders. During the last election cycle POLITICO reported that Soros was quietly attempting to overhaul the U.S. justice system. Penzone, best known for roughing up his ex-wife, was bought and paid for. Immediately after his election, he referred to illegal invaders as “guests.”

Additionally, what rational person would think it merely serendipitous that charges were brought against Sheriff Arpaio to coincide with his reelection bid? This was a well orchestrated, multifaceted effort to remove the popular sheriff who had been returned to office for 6-four year terms by the citizens of Maricopa County who appreciated him.

The only reason Grant Woods, McCain’s former chief of staff, rates any coverage is due to the fact that has learned he can generate attention by remaining a registered Republican while supporting Democrats. He was prominently displayed on Republicans for Janet, during Napolitano’s 2006 gubernatorial campaign and endorsed Democrats Terry Goddard and Felecia Rotellini for AZ Attorney General in two separate races. Leftist Harry Mitchell was Grant Wood’s pick for Congress. In 2016, he endorsed Hillary Clinton for President.

This is the man the fake news purveyor Arizona Republic identifies as “a Republican former attorney general.”


AZ Republic: Joe Arpaio pardon still Page One news

August 27, 2017

Devastating storm takes back seat to Trump/Arpaio hatred

 It’s time to put President Donald Trump’s pardon of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in perspective.

Barack Obama pardoned 212 people and commuted the convictions of a further 1,715 people — among them are: persons who committed treason against the United State. On his way out of the White House, the travesty continued. Obama granted 78 commutations on Dec. 20. 2016

 On January 17, 2017, Obama commuted the sentence of 209 individuals 109 of whom faced life sentences. These included Chelsea (born Bradley) Manning convicted of espionage and Oscar Lopez Rivera sentenced to 70 years for seditious conspiracy and attempted escape — enabling them to be released from prison on May 17, 2017. Manning’s sentence initially ran through the year 2045. Two days later on January 19, 2017 his last full day in office, Obama commuted the prison sentences of 330 federal inmates; most of them black violent drug offenders.

The United States Department of Justice provides THIS LIST of pardons granted by Pres. Barack Obama. THIS LIST shows the commutations Obama granted.

AZ Republic denied Arpaio perp walk, mug shot, goes apoplectic

Joe Arpaio graciously expresses appreciation of President Trump’s pardon

Even as the local newspaper anticipated the pardon President Donald Trump granted former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the collective rage of its editorialists, reporters and columnists is palpable. We’ve summed it up in our headline.  The mob of thugs posing as reporters and editors have been exposed by their own words, which you will not read here.

But who rates a stand alone quote on the front page? None other than Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS), a longtime and current committed amnesty-supporter righteously stating:

“The President has the authority to make this pardon, but in doing so….undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law as Mr. Arpaio has shown no remorse for his actions.” It was excerpted from this full statement released by ASS’s office.

Jeff Flake, who has already inflamed the Republican base with his incessant anti-Trump rhetoric, amnesty schemes, and recently released 140-page anti-conservative pamphlet masquerading as a book, is running for reelection and wasn’t as quick on the draw. His bottom-dragging polling numbers tell his story. Flake has been reprimanded by Republican National Committee chair Ronna Romney McDaniel.

Sean Hannity devoted a segment on his FOX nightly show to telling Flake that hehas lost his way Hannity recently endorsed Dr. Kelli Ward in the 2018 Arizona senate race.

So does SRAZ.
