Biblical plagues afflict Middle East

January 19, 2019

Exodus revisited?

This linked video documents that locusts have invaded the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

Another separate video shows raging, torrential floods and oversized hailstorms taking their toll on Middle East residents, washing away passenger-filled cars. Violent winds, destroying buildings, massive trees and toppling large trucks have also hammered the area. Watch all five minutes to see the full extent of the cataclysmic devastation. 

Now the U.K.’s Mirror reports a “biblical” sandstorm has turned Egypt’s capitol city of Cairo, orange. Government officials are warning residents to stay indoors to avoid respiratory problems. The bizarre event, including strong winds and rough seas, has forced the closure of major ports.

So far, as in the biblical account of the ten plagues that afflicted Egypt —- vividly described in the book of Exodus —- the rivers have not yet turned to blood. But an omnipotent voice appears to be speaking from above.

Educrat thugs promise “Armageddon”

January 17, 2019

AEA Pres. Joe Thomas threatens another strike, as teachers resemble thugs pulling a heist

Emboldened by Gov. Ducey’s capitulation to their 20% salary demands, the #RedsforEd unionist teachers are planning more walkouts.

Even after Ducey caved to their demands after vowing he would not, the unionists still endorsed radical Leftist open border proponent David Garcia for governor.  He was trounced 56% to 41%. And the new money for the teacher’s raises which Ducey said he would not increase taxes to provide? He’s instituted a newpublic safety fee” to cover the pay hikes.

During the strike Joe Thomas, president of the Arizona Education Association (AEA) was front and center issuing statements about the need for more money for the teachers —- who care so much for their students that last year they abandoned 800,000 of them for over a week in violation of their contractual agreements.

Paid by the union, Joe Thomas received in excess of $400,000 in compensation each year from 2011 through 2016. That swank sum has no doubt been upgraded in the past three years. Thomas and his teacher wife are Democrats. Following the Nov. General Election, we posted,If you like AZ’s leftist election results, thank a teacher.”

The striking teachers chose Noah Karvelis as the leader they mindlessly followed. The 23-year-old hip hop music teacher and Socialist Bernie Sander’s AZ campaign coordinator,  urged his colleagues on Twitter to teach political activism to their students and advance the concepts of gun control, white privilege, and anti-capitalism.

Never forget the “underpaid” teachers, who work 81/2 months a year, are able to support the far left teacher’s unions to the tune of $millions a year, earmarked for Democrat candidates and liberal causes.

We are geared to think that teachers care about the students entrusted to them, but walking out on them proves otherwise. So do the words of then-retiring NEA legal counsel Bob Chanin. Listen to his admission carefully.(brief video.) He admits that the unions are about money, power, and a leftist agenda —- clearly stating “It’s not because we care about children.”

Teachers have staged walkouts in West Virginia, Colorado, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Arizona, and now in the Los Angeles School District, where they are  promising “Armageddon.” To most of them, that’s a word with mystic allure.  What it really promises is catastrophic calamity of biblical proportions.

Passage of ballot propositions — 301 in 2000 increasing the state sales tax and 123 in 2016 a grab from the state land trust — guaranteed more money for education, which apparently is never enough. School districts routinely hold budget overrides and bond elections to “get more money into the classroom” —- eduspeak for bolstering teacher’s salaries. A major premise of passing the Arizona Lottery in 1980 was that money from ticket sales would fund schools.

Falling prey to the teacher’s demands was foolishness personified. It’s like attempting to bribe a mobster. No amount will ever be enough.


Leftist network to hire deceitful Flake?

January 13, 2019

Insufferable Republicrat egotist Jeff Flake appears to have found a fitting perch for his hateful, anti-conservative spew. Arizona’s unpopular  former congressman and single-term senator is frequently mischaracterized as being a vulgar Trump-hater.  But in a state that gave all of its electoral votes to the president, it’s fair to say he actually reviles the majority of Republicans in the state he claimed to represent.

Often described as opting not to seek reelection, it’s worth remembering that Flake’s embarrassingly low 18-percent approval rating in his home state made the decision for him. Even his relatives populating the small, conservative LDS community named in part for his great-grandfather, and where Jeff Flake was born and raised, find him intolerable. They know he prefers illegal aliens to them.

The Hollywood Reporter appears to confirm reports that Flake has been discussing a possible job with the reliably left CBS network. Just as traitors are heralded by antagonists of truth, Jeff Flake should be similarly revered by those who promote Socialists Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and other political extremists exemplified by the governors and mayors of NYC and the sanctuary state of Mexifornia.

If hired by CBS, Flake won’t find many fans among Arizonans who pay attention, and prefer Fox cable programming to the raging alphabet networks who have been correctly identified as purveyors of “fake news.”


Biased, anti-Trump coverage admission by ex-NYT editor

January 3, 2019

Truth has a left-wing messenger who has a book to sell

In her upcoming book, “Merchants of Truth: The Business of News and the Fight for Facts,” former New York Times executive editor, Jill Abramson spills the beans on the newspaper’s anti-Trump bias. “Some headlines contained raw opinion, as did some of the stories that were labeled as news analysis,“ she acknowledged.

Ms. Abramson said the paper enjoyed a significant “Trump bump” in digital subscriptions since the president took office and now that demand is driving coverage.

“Given its mostly liberal audience, there was an implicit financial reward for The Times in running lots of Trump stories, almost all of them negative: they drove big traffic numbers and, despite the blip of cancellations after the election, inflated subscription orders to levels no one anticipated,” Abramson wrote. Her book was reviewed by Fox News.

Abramson also complains about the unabashed liberal bent taken on by her successor, executive editor Dean Baquet.

But don’t be tempted to give her too much credit. She’s no fan of the President either, referring to his “fake news” attacks as a “cheap way of trying to undermine the credibility of the Times’ reporting as something to be accepted as truth only by liberals in urban, cosmopolitan areas.”

Sounds right on target, except for demeaning his accurate account as “cheap.”

 The Washington Times carries the full report. It’s written by Howard Kurtz, formerly of the Washington Post and The Daily Beast. He has written for the leftist New Republic and was a regular on CNN, which he left to join Fox News. If that seems like an odd career trajectory, remember Juan Williams, Jessica Tarlov and that Sean Hannity originally shared duties with extreme leftist Alan Colmes. It’s not at all unusual for Fox hosts to feature liberal guests.

CNN, MSNBC and their media ilk prefer their contributors to be reliable regurgitaters of skewed news and Trump detractors. That desire drove the compelling case for Republicrat Jeff Flake —- and his frequent appearances on those networks. Turncoats have gravitas.

Jill Abramson is simply confirming what we’ve already known.


Tracking the media’s hatred of conservatives

December 31, 2018

Today we gift our readers with this must read year-end wrap up, courtesy of Geoffrey Dickens at Media Research Center’s News Busters. It incorporates a series of examples of the media’s hatred of conservatives, many including corroborating videos of the deceptive reporting tactics. Watch it in segments, if you must, but let nothing deter you from watching the full exposé of the propagandizing schemes.  Knowledge is power. This is what we’re up against from the left. Democrats are already gearing up for 2020 — likely the most important election cycle of our lifetimes. Their aim is to politically hobble President Trump while rendering the Republican Party to relic status.

Here in Arizona, aided by the #RedsforEd unionist teachers who followed in lockstep with self-admitted Socialist Pied Piper Noah Karvelis, our red state turned the color of eggplant as we lost previously Republican held statewide offices. Gone are a U.S. Senate seat, Secretary of State, Superintendent of Public Instruction, and one of the two seats on the utility rate-setting Corporation Commission. Greg Stanton, the left-wing former mayor of Phoenix won in Congressional District 9. Dems now hold five of Arizona’s nine CD seats.

Obviously Arizona Republicans need new leadership. Jonathan Lines, a Robert (Mc)Graham protégé, is brazenly running for a second term as state GOP chairman, despite presiding over the worst election debacle in memory. Back-up candidate Frank Thorwald conveniently works for puppeteer Graham. The status quo has infected us with ruinous political plagues. We need a capable doctor to bring is back to health.  If you are an elected state committeeman cast your ballot at the Jan. 26, 2019 AZ GOP statutory meeting for Dr. Kelli Ward, the sole conservative running for state chairman. Thinking Arizona can survive more of the same is delusionary.

Justice Ginsburg’s ill-timed gamble

December 23, 2018

On Friday Dec. 21, the U.S Supreme Court released this terse message on the condition of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who underwent surgery to remove the lower lobe of her left lung where two malignant nodules were found. The 85-year-old Ginsburg remains hospitalized at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. In Nov. she was hospitalized after breaking three ribs in a fall.

Ginsburg, a former ACLU lawyer, appointed to the high court by Bill Clinton, has previously survived early-stage colon (1999) and pancreatic cancer (2009). She has stated she intends to stay on the court for five more years, hoping to surpass what she believes to be President Trump’s time in office.

“I am sure she wants to stay on the court until the end of the Trump presidency if she can,” said Erwin Chemerinsky, the dean of the law school at the University of California, Berkeley, and a liberal who called on Ginsburg to retire in 2014, when Barack Obama was president and Democrats controlled the Senate.

Chemerinsky bemoaned her decision, “No one can know whether she will be on the court on Jan. 20, 2021, if Trump serves one term, let alone Jan. 20, 2025, if he is re-elected.”

Like most liberals, Ginsburg no doubt felt certain (video) Hillary Clinton would be elected president, and would replace her with another leftist when the time came. With the election of President Trump, that pipe dream didn’t pan out.

In Feb. 2012, we wrote,US Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg: Unfit to serve,” in which she disparaged the U.S. Constitution, saying if he were advising an emerging new nation she would not counsel its leaders to pattern their constitution after ours, noting that she preferred the constitution of South Africa.

Her glib reason for falling asleep during Barack Obama’s 2015 State of the Union speech was that she’d had too much to drink before attending andwas not 100% sober.” (video admission.)

While wishing her a full recovery from her recent surgery, we also hope she’ll retire and spend her sober time with her family. Her 86th birthday is coming up in a couple of months.
