Media stoke savagery, then ask how to talk about it

July 12, 2016

American media sources — print, radio, television and digital — whose stock in trade is turning events into the English language for public consumption, should know all too well the powerful impact of words.

Yet it persists in misusing language. Most often the sentence construction and turn of phrase is intended to incite or sway opinion to the left.

The left-wing Arizona Republic newspaper, which makes no effort at delivering unbiased information, gets it wrong again. But this time it is indefensible regardless of one’s political vantage point.

Monday’s Page One article about the calculated ambush-style shooting that left five Dallas police officers dead and 11 wounded, is titled, “How do we talk about the tragedy?” Let’s be clear.  What took place in Dallas and in other cities where police have been subjected to death threats, targeted and mowed down is not “a tragedy,” which most people regard as an unavoidable misfortune.  It is terrorism. Barbarism rooted in evil. It is hate crime, personified. 

Black Lives Matter is not a “movement.” It is radical thuggery condoned at the highest levels of the Obama regime, from the words spoken by the man who sits in the Oval Office to U. S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch as she tells those who support the shooters and deliberately clog city highways — blocking traffic, emergency vehicles and access to businesses for hours, “Do not be discouraged.”

The term ”community” has also taken on a new meaning. Rather than relating to the community in which we all live, it’s defined by the ethnicity of the person using the word. According to Breitbart, the New Black Panthers now have a plan to form their own nation within the USA. 

The election of Barack Obama set the stage for the deepening racial divide. We screwed up in 2008 and again in 2012. We better get it right in 2016. America’s future is at stake.


NRA goes to bat for Trump, hits Hillary in her Benghazi

June 30, 2016

The National Rifle Association has released it’s first pro-Trump ad of the 2016 election cycle. The powerful ad features Mark “Oz” Geist, a Marine Corps veteran who provided security services in Benghazi, Libya.

“A lot of people say they’re not going to vote this November because their candidate didn’t win,” Geist begins as he strolls through a military cemetery. “Well, I know some other people who won’t be voting this year either. Hillary as President? No thanks.

I served in Benghazi. My friends didn’t make it. They did their part. Do yours.”

In this 2015 interview with Ammoland, Donald Trump made his views clear as he talked politics and guns, beginning with this statement:

“I am a Life Member of the NRA and am proud of their service in protecting our right to keep and bear arms. The NRA’s efforts to stop dangerous, gun-banning legislation and regulation is invaluable. The media focus on those efforts overshadows the great work the NRA does on behalf of safety and conservation.”


Americans becoming more wary

June 14, 2016

Confidence in many established institutions dropping like a rock

Trust in banks, organized religion, news media, and congress fell significantly during the past decade, according to this recent Gallup survey.

The report reveals Americans clearly lack confidence in the institutions that affect their daily lives: the schools responsible for educating the nation’s children; the houses of worship that are expected to provide spiritual guidance; the banks that are supposed to protect Americans’ earnings; the U.S. Congress elected to represent the nation’s interests; the news media that claims it exists to keep them informed and the judiciary which is supposed to render unbiased decisions. The U.S. military remains held in high regard as does law enforcement and big business.

 The nearly across-the-board decline in trustworthiness of these previously solidly respected institutions has given rise to an increasingly jaundiced view, culminating in higher levels of distrust.

John McCain needs to heed his own advice

June 13, 2016

Sen. John McCain: “If all you have to run on is negative attack ads, you don’t have much of a vision for the future.”

There’s no denying the truth in his comment.

Which is precisely why McCain — campaigning for reelection for another 6-year term at age 80 — is running endless attack ads against Dr. Kelli Ward.  Let’s make sure she’s able to get her principled, conservative message out to the voters. Unlike McCain, she doesn’t have a well oiled cadre of lobbyists and liberal PACs to keep the money flowing.

Just last week we exposed the vile ads being run against physician and former state senator Kelli Ward, in a post titled, “Vicious AZ US Senate campaign ads: Follow the McMoney.”

Bold, fresh and fearless, Dr. Kelli Ward needs our help. There won’t be a do-over.  In this most crucial U.S. Senate election, Arizonans have the opportunity to make a much-needed change. Send her what you can.

 

 


Leftwing AZ Republic goes to bat for John McCain

April 25, 2016

Republic’s parent company Gannett pushing hostile takeover of Tribune Publishing

The front page of the left -of-center Arizona Republic was ablaze with an above-the-fold article and photo featuring an intense looking John McCain. He’s very concerned, donc’ha know, about what the newspaper refers to as “tales of suffering caused to Navajos by the Gold King Mine toxic spill.” McCain is also distressed about veterans. It’s election season and after decades in D.C. Arizona’s senior senator — who will be 80 by Election Day and is running for yet another 6-year term — knows how to gin up votes. With his overly long career on the line, he can’t afford to dismiss any potential constituencies these days.

McCain, who was literally chased off the Navajo Nation by tribal members, and told to “Get off our land,” less than a year ago, has recently developed an epiphany regarding Navajo issues. He needs tribal votes in a race that resembles a disastrous career ender for him.  His reception was similar to the one CD-1 Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick received from constituents assembled at a local grocery store for a town hall meeting that went very much awry. She wanted no part of a question and answer session and high tailed it out within minutes to hoots and hollers.  A man in the crowd reminded her, “You’re our employee!” Her abrupt exit was cheered, along with the shout, “Don’t come back!”

Expect John McCain to take another border stroll and make promises to “secure the border“ he has no intention of keeping. This deceitful behavior wins him prime space and accolades at the pro-illegal alien, pro-amnesty, Gannett-owned  Arizona Republic.

If the news conglomerate is successful in its unsolicited bid to buy out the majority of publishing entities for $815 Million, it will control the nation’s news as it does Arizona’s.

 According to it’s own press release, Gannett Co. Inc.,  which recently completed the $280 million acquisition of Journal Media Group. is “disappointed” that Tribune Publishing has refused its “highly compelling” offer. Gannett currently owns 108 newspapers and their affiliated digital properties which now comprise the newly created USA TODAY NETWORK.

If successful in its  takeover, George Orwell’s best seller “1984 ”will have come to pass. Read our April 3, 2013 account of Winston Smith. It will fill in the blanks.


Dem think is mind-bogglingly arrogant

April 6, 2016

The Politico article Clinton aides unite on FBI legal strategy, appears innocuous enough. It describes the fact that a quartet of Hillary Clinton’s former staffers are using the same lawyer during the FBI probe into her reckless use of a private, unsecured server, based in her home — compromising national security data.

Readers must slog through over a dozen paragraphs before the interesting details regarding lawyer Beth Wilkinson emerge. She is not only a high dollar Clinton donor, but also gives generously to the Democrat Party. Potential conflicts aside, Wilkinson is the wife of CNN leftwing political analyst and former “Meet the Press” host, David Gregory. You might recall the dynamic duo send their children to the exclusive and heavily protected Sidwell Friends school in Washington, D.C., but hypocritically want to restrict the rest of us from possessing firearms. 

Have some good rainy day fun visiting the Sunlight Foundation. It’s equality entertaining when the sun is shining — as is forecast today.

“Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants,” remains a much quoted observation of former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis. (1856 – 1941)
