Making the case that the media skew the news

December 6, 2016

The Daily Regurgitation — yes, the state’s largest newspaper really does shamelessly re-spew its own reports — sometimes a day or two apart and often in different sections of the same edition. The frequency of the repetition quickly took the actions outside of the error category.

Open borders/amnesty plodder Linda Valdez, never one to obscure her far left views, writes columns titled, “How liberals move forward under Trump.” or “The Mexico you need to know.” But she outdoes herself with this rollicking piece titled, “Why Trump’s attack on media hurts you more than me.” She cites  the growing proliferation of “fake news” as being “truly corrosive to liberty,” even managing to stir Thomas Jefferson into the mix. As one who routinely engages in skew, her protests ring hollow.

Valdez quotes President-elect Donald Trump telling an audience that “professional journalists are very dishonest people.”

Even the reliably liberal Washington Post headlines with this admission: “Just 7 percent of journalists are Republicans. That’s far fewer than even a decade ago.”

Chris Cillizza reports: A majority of American journalists identify themselves as political Independents although among those who choose a side Democrats outnumber Republicans four to one.” He cites a study of the media conducted by two Indiana University professors.

It would be beyond rational to believe a reporter’s personal political alignment doesn’t seep into his or her political news coverage. Readers of the Arizona Republic  know better. That’s why there are fewer and fewer of them.

Valdez doth protest too much.


Tucker Carlson eviscerates overindulged, liberal college student

November 24, 2016

This vacuous punk wants to be an American history teacher. Imagine him propagandizing students with his personal perspective that allows him to view his own parents as being able to afford his pricey education through money they garnered profiteering from slavery. Unless they’re a couple of hundred years old, it’s a difficult argument to follow. They foot the bill for their son’s private Hampshire College tuition to the tune of $62,000 a year. Here’s an example of what’s influencing his judgment.


Sheriff David Clarke perfectly describes Obama’s actions

Obama opens prison doors, allows more refugees, considers additional amnesty for illegals

Barack Obama has been on a clemency roll as he heads out the door. On Tuesday he commuted the sentences of 79 drug offenders bringing the total number of federal inmates who’ve had their sentences reduced by the soon to be exiting president to 1,023. He has now granted clemency to more inmates than the past 11 presidents combined

Feeling emboldened, Democrat U.S. Reps. Zoe Lofgren, Lucille Roybal-Allard and Jeff Flake’s radical left-wing amnesty buddy, Luis Gutierrez, who has longstanding ties to the American Communist and Socialist parties —  recently sent this letter to Barack Obama imploring him to use his pardon authority to forgive the past and future civil immigration offenses of the estimated 750,000 impossible to verify so-called “DREAMers.” These foreign nationals, many now adults with families of their own, all claim they were brought here as young children in violation of the law by their illegal parents. Obama granted them deportation deferrals under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. They are still illegally in the United States, taking university placements and jobs from American citizens. Rather than being a DREAM, this constitutes a nightmare, as conservative Human Events reveals.

Obama also plans on upping the ante on unable-to-be-vetted Syrian “refugees,” increasing their numbers in the United States by another 10,000.  

Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke gets it.  He says Obama is “like a tenant who has been evicted and will trash the place on his way out.”


Failed prez candidate McCain threatens Trump, Arizonans

November 21, 2016

Better brush up on our spelling

According to John McCain’s assigned sycophantic reporter at the daily newspaper, the elderly senator is not only warning President-elect Donald Trump that the Republican controlled U.S. Senate “will not be his rubber stamp,” but he won’t rule out running again for another 6-year term at age 86. We can imagine him mumbling under his breath, “No one can do the job like me.” (video)

Dan Nowicki quotes McCain as saying, “I feel great; my mother will be 105 in February.”

Our Monday morning prediction? We’re going to have to learn to spell Giuliani, as in Secretary of State. Mitt Romney was a bridge too far as a 2008 and 2012 candidate.  He‘d be a mega mistake as incoming President Trump’s  foreign policy adviser.

Although it was obviously not the intention of Dan Nowicki — McCain’s sycophantic assigned reporter at the Arizona Republic — his coverage of Mitt Romney’s visit to the East Valley to spread the McCain gospel to his fellow church members was nothing short of hilarious.

Nowicki writes that the “small crowd” which he generously estimated at 150 who showed up at the Chicago Cubs spring-training stadium was “no doubt depressed by the heavy rain, bitter wind and dangerous driving conditions.” Weather, not nearly as ominous as described, is a convenient excuse. Romney has never been able to turn out an Arizona crowd, regardless of the climate conditions, even in Mesa, where he should have cachet.

Romney spoke for all of ten minutes extolling McCain’s experience on the world stage and in the senate as a “bipartisan leader.” For conservative Republicans, who know the self identified “maverick” all too well, that translates as a turncoat colluder with the left.

Our post referencing Romney’s visit was much funnier, reminding our readers that brain-dead McCain couldn’t even remember who Romney is.  Watch this priceless 2012 campaign video as John McCain actually confuses then-presidential candidate Mitt Romney with Barack Obama. Then remind yourself McCain was four years younger then. The deterioration hasn’t improved with the passage of time.

Obvious political double standards

When it comes to scandal-plagued and utterly dishonest Hillary Clinton, the U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch clandestinely meets on the tarmac of Sky Harbor airport for a tête-à-tête with Hill’s husband Bill aboard a private jet — ostensibly to discuss grandchildren.

And, though  FBI Director James Comey found compelling evidence of concerning issues in Hillary Clinton’s use of multiple private email servers, he concluded that he would not recommend charges against her, though he conceded Clinton and her aides were “extremely careless” in handling classified information. Comey refused to recommend an indictment against Hillary Clinton, despite “evidence” she violated laws pertaining to the handling of classified information, jeopardizing U.S. national security. These breaches occurred during her term as Secretary of State. “There is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position  should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that information,” Comey acknowledged.

Additionally, Comey noted that other individuals in a similar situation would not necessarily be let off the hook with no charges, and would probably face penalties. “But that’s not what we’re deciding now,” he glibly fed us, the sheeple. “We are expressing to Justice our view that no charges be made in this case.”

“Justice,” of course, is U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch of the tarmac meeting fame.  Addressing the people of the United States, the FBI director actually said that “no outside influence of any kind was brought to bear” on the investigation. He neglected to mention the inappropriate meeting between former president Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch aboard a private jet.

Hillary Clinton is free to run for the U.S. Presidency, guaranteeing Obama’s third term.

Here in Arizona, we have what clearly appears to be a personal vendetta carried out by a federal judge timed to coincide with the General Election in which popular Sheriff Joe Arpaio is on the ballot running for a seventh term. He was formally charged Tuesday with criminal contempt of court for ignoring U.S. District Judge Murray Snow’s order in a three-year old racial-profiling case. Arpaio acknowledged violating Snow’s order but insists the breach wasn’t intentional

Arpaio’s challenger in the race is once again  rough ‘er up Democrat Paul Penzone, funded by multi-billionaire Socialist George Soros, who is contemptuous of national borders. Soros also funds Hillary Clinton and John McCain.

If convicted, Sheriff Arpaio could face up to six months in jail. A misdemeanor conviction would not bar Arpaio from serving as sheriff.

Sheriff Arpaio’s interview with Lou Dobbs is worth your time:

 


Ancient McCain picks up speed avoiding reporters’ questions

October 20, 2016

What makes Johnny Mac run?

FTVLive which advertises itself as “Gossip and News From Inside TV Newsrooms Around the Country,” reports McCain Runs From TV Cameras. It details, complete with a video, KPHO CBS 5 political reporter Dennis Welch attempting to talk to John McCain about his comments regarding blocking Hillary Clinton‘s Supreme Court nominees if she were to be elected president. Now in his 80s, McCain is running for another 6-year senate term.

The site’s take was an example of cutting edge humor noting McCain “even ran from the camera, which is pretty good for a guy that’s a 124 years old.”

In May 2010 we posted Casper McCain: Ghostlike apparition nowhere to be seen as he hides from debates. It included a video of John McCain scurrying rat-like at the very mention of J.D. Hayworth’s name. McCain refused to debate the former Arizona Congressman who was challenging him.

During the 2016 Primary, Republicrat McCain outrageously lied about his conservative challenger, two term state senator and physician Dr. Kelli Ward. In TV ads and numerous mailers he referred to her as “weak on defeating ISIS terrorists,” an issue he knew all too well is not dealt with at the state legislative level, but in the U.S. Senate where he has spent decades. He also refused to debate her, knowing she would have him for lunch.

With a career steeped in supporting liberals and their causes, it’s not much of a surprise to find John McCain is ranked lower than any senator in the United Statesas Townhall reports.

Ever heard of Stuart Starky? He was a Democrat perennial candidate who was a salesman and later a grade school teacher, with nothing to recommend him for the U.S. House or Senate both of which he ran for beginning in the 1990s. McCain eagerly debated Starky and even reached out to hug him at the conclusion. Why not? Starky helped keep the marginal McCain politically viable.
