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.”
