Leftist propaganda results in newspapers’ failures

December 6, 2022

Newspaper closures since 2004 average two a week

The headline, “From CNN to Gannett, Media Industry Laying Off Workers Amid Recession Fears,“ substantiates the end result of delivering skewed news intended to insult conservative consumers. Reporter Andrew Moran describes the industry’s demise. In addition to being a relic business in a technology-based world, leftist propaganda is challenged by facts at media giant FOX News. Bidenflation has negatively affected discretionary spending. Radio and television deliver news free of charge, with numerous networks to choose from. Expecting intelligent people to pay to be insulted is not a winning business model. In Arizona, weekly newspapers are the norm.

In the four paragraphs following “Gannett Slashing Headcount,” there is a partial listing of the newspapers in trouble. It reports, “Gannett, which owns USA Today, The Detroit Free Press, The Indianapolis Star, and dozens of other local media outlets, has seen its share price tank this year. Year to date, the stock has cratered more than 53 percent.”  The increasingly extremist, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic is in such dire shape continually losing subscriptions, it isn’t even worthy of being listed — described only as one of “dozens.” Gannett stock (GCI) continues to tank. It was trading at $24.70 on Feb. 27, 2014, which was a major tumble from its previous highs. On Monday, GCI closed at $2.61.

According to Poynter, a news media overseer, an updated survey of US newspapers finds 360 more have closed since 2019.

A trader would do better buying chickens to roam the backyard. That investment provides free fertilizer, fresh eggs and a fresher than supermarket Sunday roast with honey glazed drumsticks.

Desiring to further her career, Judge Lin backtracks on vile negativity aimed at Christians

December 4, 2022

GOP Sen. Kennedy holds Biden’s judicial nominee’s feet to the fire

The Obiden-Harris administration has nominated democrat San Francisco County Superior Court Judge Rita F. Lin to fill a vacancy on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. As is frequently the case, her ethnicity and gender take precedence over her credentials. The announcement notes that if confirmed, Lin would be the second Asian Pacific American woman, and first Taiwanese American woman on the district bench.

Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy, delving deeper, questioned her about her previous incendiary opinions regarding members of the Christian Coalition. 

Rita Lin, salivating over the prospect of a federal judgeship, says she no longer believes members of the Christian Coalition are “bigots,” something she asserted in an essay when she was a senior at Harvard. “This is what you said, and I quote, your words not mine,” Kennedy stated, ‘”The problem with the Christian Coalition is not that they are Bible thumpers, but that they are bigots.’ Did I quote that correctly?”

Lin responded that the Louisiana senator did quote her correctly but that she does not agree with those statements today.

“I did write that when I was 20 years old…. I do want to be clear. I do not agree with that today. I wrote that before I went to law school, before I had any kind of….”

“You were a grown woman when you wrote this,” Kennedy interjected as he noted that Lin was a junior at Harvard at the time of publication. Despite her notorious bigotry, she was accepted to and graduated from Harvard Law School.

A far-left democrat who previously represented Pres. Trump despising Lambda Legal, Judge Lin was appointed to the Superior Court bench in 2018 by Gov. Jerry ”Moonbeam” Brown. As an incumbent, Lin was the only candidate to file and won the position by default when the election was canceled. Lambda Legal is not appeased, claiming the Biden administration fell short on LGBTQ+ representation.

Watch Sen. Kennedy’s interview of Judge Lin:

Although Lin disclosed she suffers from a hearing loss resulting from a childhood illness, she pointedly omitted that her radical biases made her agreeable to both Jerry Brown and Joe Biden. Her polished-up Fact Sheet omits any personal information.


Elections? We don’t need no stinkin’ elections*

November 11, 2022

If memory serves correctly, there was an election in Arizona last Tuesday. Today is Friday, and still there are no clear cut winners in the majority of races. We are repeatedly told we live in a technological era where information is easily accessible…all, that is, except our election results.

In the classic movie, “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre,” movie buffs will remember the line, “Badges? We don’t need no stinking badges.” *

Arizonans, waiting days for the election results understand the frustration as we witness the ineptitude of Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, whose office’s Elections Division is responsible for administering all elections in the state, and certifying their results. Currently running for governor, Hobbs, who childishly refused to debate Republican Kari Lake and got away with the scam, appears to have a conflict of interest. The blame game is exacerbated as Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, whose duties include digitally recording documents, is also responsible for administering the Maricopa County Elections Department, which conducts all national, state and county wide elections.

The problems are exacerbated by the internal strife between Richer and the members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors jockeying for supremacy, though attempting to show cohesiveness as seen in this video taped press conference yesterday —  presented as Election Update November 10, 2022. The losers are the voters of Maricopa County. Supervisor Bill Gates, the board’s chairman blames the “two” political parties, the coming weekend and the Veterans Day holiday. He also makes it clear he is no fan of fellow Republican Kari Lake, who has rightfully questioned the process. These barely moving numbers are shocking.

Arizona Republic writes its own obituary

October 25, 2022

Buried on page three under an over-sized photo of a same-sex “Pride” celebration, is the headline, “Gannett puts Phoenix printing facility up for sale, asks $47.7M.”

Gannett is the parent company of the dramatically failing Arizona newspaper and its online version. Poynter, a news industry fact checker, with a decidedly leftwing bent, headlined its coverage, “Gannett announces new cuts including mandatory unpaid leave and buyouts. The company also will pause overall hiring and temporarily suspend matching 401(k) contributions.” It included this letter from Gannett president Mike Reed, detailing the dismal future for the company and employees.

Parents overpay to send their kids to ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication (home to partisan Arizona PBS) — named for a leftwing CBS broadcaster who oversaw the erosion of journalism as he interjected his own leftist commentary into his nightly newscasts. He demoralized families of those serving in Vietnam when he ended his nightly newscasts with photos of caskets being off-loaded from airplanes, accompanied by individual photos of dead U.S. servicemen. Cronkite’s baritone voice was considered familial, but he was as political as the enemy American’s were fighting in the Southeast Asian jungles. Identified as “Uncle Walter” in the early days of television, discerning viewers eventually found him to be anything but warm and fuzzy.

And coming full circle, who did we find among the myriad associates at Poynter?  None other than Mi-Ai Parrish, glowingly described as the chair of Poynter’s National Advisory Board; CEO and President of MAP (her initials) Strategies Group; Endowed Chair, Media Innovation and Leadership and Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, at ASU. She is heralded as former president and publisher of USA TODAY NETWORK Arizona, The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com in Phoenix, AZ — and, of course, “the first person of color in the role.” Poynter refers to conservatives as “conspiracy theorists” and “far-right extremists.” The World Tribune writes: Poynter is funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundations and the Omidyar Network. The two combined for “$1.3 million in grant funding.” Soros-funded Poynter blacklists ‘unreliable’ conservative publications.

After being indoctrinated for years, newly graduated reporters instinctively fall into lockstep with the left. It’s what they do. It’s who they are. That fact, besides working for little pay, underscores their value to the dying local newspaper.


Blundering Biden brings his crude vulgarity to storm ravaged Florida

October 7, 2022

Latest reports confirm “at least” 131 bodies recovered

Joe Biden was caught on a hot mic while visiting Fort Myers Beach, Florida, amid the staggering devastation following the deadly Category 4 storm damage from Hurricane Ian. Absent any context related to the visit, he told the local mayor that “no one f- -ks with a Biden.”

“Keep the faith,” Biden vacuously said to Fort Myers Beach Mayor Ray Murphy after speaking to reporters. “And by the way, you’re raised the same way I was. No one f- -ks with a Biden.”


VP Harris blunders, claims US “alliance” with aggressor North Korea

September 30, 2022

“Border Czar” Harris cavorts in Asia, still neglects US/Mexico border where invasion impacting USA is ongoing

Finding anyone who unequivocally asserts Vice President Kamala Harris is up to the job of assuming the reins of government if we were to have an incapacitated president would be less of an absurdity, if we were not already in that tenuous position.  

Joe Biden, the oldest elected president in American history, is a clearly out-of-touch octogenarian, who campaigned out of his basement two years ago, has less than a nodding acquaintance with the truth, and has demonstrated mental fragility in the intervening years. He has fallen multiple times while boarding Air Force One, fallen at home, resulting in a broken foot, fallen off his bike while attempting to demonstrate his non-existent fitness. He has difficulty articulating simple sentences, and was embarrassingly ignored when Barack Obama paid a WH visit. 

Within short order following Harris’ return trip to the U.S. after her four-day Asian jaunt, North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea, marking North Korea’s third round of missile launches this week, following previous provocative actions.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre casually acknowledged North Korea “has a history of doing these types of tests,” adding that Harris’ Asia trip this week is a demonstration of “our rock-solid commitment” to the security of Japan and South Korea.

The trip was obviously a diversion from the demanding duties of securing our own chaotic border where Kamala Harris has definitely not demonstrated a “rock solid commitment.”

As millions arrive illegally following Biden’s orders to tear down the effective border wall — miles of which were under construction during President Donald Trump‘s administration — the U.S. Customs and Border Protection has a significantly different public face focusing on its history, which even used the dem’s now verboten term “Illegal aliens.” Under Biden, illegal aliens are now deceptively referred to as “migrants” and the colored-coded page of continually updating numbers of illegal invaders has vanished. There is, however, a “Scam Alert” which has nothing to do with the sieve-like border, though it has dozens of undoubtedly well-paid press officers listed. The Biden/Harris administration views illegals warmly as new voters, irreversibly increasing the size of the democrat party. The only way to save our nation is to elect Republicans.
