Two GOP U.S. Senators cave to anarchists

July 2, 2020

As rioting and violent mobs, abysmally ignorant of history, assault police officers, pillage and topple historic monuments — U.S. Presidents, Union Army Generals and Christopher Columbus among them — two U.S. Senators are caving to the agents of chaos.

Republican Sens. Ron Johnson (WI) and James Lankford (OK) now agree with the mob that intrepid Italian explorer Christopher Columbus is no longer worthy of a holiday commemorating his ships’ arrival in the Americas in 1492. When Columbus set off across the Atlantic, the prevailing thought was that the world was flat.

President Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, designated Columbus Day a national holiday in 1934. The first Columbus Day celebration took place in 1792, when the Columbian Order in New York City held a ceremony on the voyage’s 300th anniversary.

The senate duo of Johnson and Lankford has added an amendment eliminating the Columbus Day celebration to a bill declaring Juneteenth, memorializing the end of slavery, a new federal holiday. 

Characterizing the purging of the Columbus Day holiday as fiscally responsible, by not having two paid holidays, is less than truthful. This is all about votes as Johnson and Lankford look ahead to their next elections. They foolishly fail to comprehend that the mob is not their constituency.


Dems fail in D.C. statehood power grab

June 27, 2020

It was bound to happen. On the rising tide of racial divide following the martyrdom of George Floyd, a career criminal who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer responding to a call of Floyd attempting to pay for merchandise with a counterfeit twenty dollar bill. The death was unnecessary and the former officer is in jail, charged with second-degree felony murder. Three other officers who witnessed the knee to Floyd’s neck are unreasonably facing third-degree murder charges. One was newly hired.

Floyd had been incarcerated multiple times on robbery and narcotics sale convictions. His autopsy report revealed he tested positive for COVID-19 and had numerous drugs including cocaine, fentanyl, cannabis, morphine and oxycotin in his system. Though far from a sterling character, his death was the impetus for riots, arson and looting across the country. It has expanded into an excuse for calls to defund police departments nationwide and destroy historic monuments in what amounts to a cultural revolution by leftists lacking in knowledge of American history as they elevate Floyd to hero status.

The most recent affront is being perpetrated by congressional Democrats who are now pushing for statehood for Washington, D.C. There is a method to their madness. If such a vote were to pass the senate, we would have a minority majority state, where black voters, mostly democrats would alter the dynamics of the U.S. House and Senate.

In a patently partisan 232-180 vote, the U.S. House on Friday approved legislation granting statehood to Washington, D.C. A single Democrat, Collin Peterson (MN) voted against H.R. 51. There is no chance of passage through the Republican controlled Senate, which adheres to the fact that such a move is unconstitutional, since the nation’s founders established the city as a neutral zone outside the influence of state politics for co-equal sovereign states to come together to transact the nation’s business.

The bill violates the 23rd Amendment, which grants D.C. residents the right to vote in presidential elections. That is of no consequence to the Democrat magicians. Their presto-chango legislation included a swift vote to repeal the 23rd Amendment.


UCLA Prof dismissed: denied black students grading leniency

June 11, 2020

Although Arizona abuts the state of California where the university system is under the direction of rabid leftist Janet Napolitano — formerly an appalling Arizona governor — don’t expect to see this astonishing story covered in the hemorrhaging subscriptions Arizona Republic. It doesn’t fit the narrative.

The UK’s Daily Mail, approximately 5,300 miles away, gave it prominence, since it is so outlandish as to warrant extensive coverage.

According to the Daily Mail, “The saga unfolded after students, who described themselves as ‘non-black allies,’ wrote to accounting professor Gordon Klein at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management, asking him to effectively cancel final exams for their black peers given the current civil unrest in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

The students demanded a ‘no-harm’ final exam intended to boost students’ grades, insisted on shortened exams and extended deadlines for final assignments and projects.

They absurdly wrote, in light of recent “traumas, we have been placed in a position where we must choose between actively supporting our black classmates or focusing on finishing up our spring quarter.”

“We believe that remaining neutral in times of injustice brings power to the oppressor and therefore staying silent is not an option,” they wrote. They followed the message up with threats.

 Prof. Klein replied, denying their request for special treatment. Read the entire article. including the petition signed by 20,000 students demanding his dismissal. The school complied, placing Prof. Klein on involuntary leave after students condemned him with the ultimate slur of being a “racist.”  He’s taught at the school for 39 years without incident, but that was before mob rule following the clearly unnecessary death of George Floyd, a career criminal, (rap sheets) who has morphed into a worshiped martyr.


Exposing the farce of “systematic racism”

June 10, 2020

This fact-filled article, “Mass Police Brutality Isn’t the True Plight of Black Americans,” by Dr. Walter E. Williams, a black professor of economics at George Mason University, is guaranteed to make us smarter — though not a match for Dr. Williams, as you‘ll see when you read his extraordinary bio.

He notes the significant political power black Americans currently have at all levels of government. He also details the correlation between abysmal educational scores in Democrat-controlled cities — despite their large, and growing, school budgets. Williams zones in on the violent crime levels in cities run by Democrats, naming the cities.

Take a few minutes to acquaint yourself with the facts. You’ll be glad you did.


What’s Driving Mitt Romney?

June 9, 2020

The movie “Driving Miss Daisy” won the Academy Award for best picture decades ago. It featured an elderly white southern widow whose son hired a black chauffeur for her, after she wrecked her car. Set in the 1940’s, the story, which begins with their mutual hostility, ends with their deep friendship.

Mitt Romney is a longtime narcissist and political opportunist, who has moved to whichever state could afford him the next higher office he was seeking. Now a U.S. Senator from Utah, he was previously the governor of Massachusetts. He ran for president in 2008 losing the primary to John McCain — and in 2012 lost to Barack Obama. Irate that he was unable to attain the presidency after so judiciously setting his path, he maliciously voted to convict President Trump in the Democrat’s contrived impeachment trial, becoming the only senator in U.S. history to vote to convict a president of their own party.

As to our question, about what’s driving Mitt…Most recently it’s been difficult to escape photos and video clips of the duplicitous Mitt marching in solidarity with the ‘Black Lives Matters’ protesters, who joined in American cites with looters and arsonists wantonly destroying $billions in property and engaging in vicious assaults.

Though they are now leaders in the “Defund and Replace” America’s police officers, Mitt has bonded with them and is on-board with their reprehensible agenda. Chicago, with higher death rates than global war zones, with mostly black victims, stands as a stunning example of lawlessness under Democrat leadership. William Hale Thompson (elected 1915 to 1923 and again from 1927 to 1931) was the most recent Republican to have served as the city’s mayor. Mitt hasn’t shown his face there.

And where was he for most of his 73 years when the LDS Church he was born into prohibited black men of African descent from being ordained to the church’s priesthood? It wasn’t until 1978, the church’s First Presidency declared through a revelation, that the restriction had been lifted.

This explanation was published by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 2013.

Under the priesthood ban, black men and women were unable to hold any significant church callings, be leaders or serve missions. For men, the priesthood is required for many leadership and church callings and is given to virtually every Latter-day Saint male as early as age 11. When Brigham Young instituted the priesthood restriction in 1852, black members were barred from many leadership and service positions. In 1952, President McKay banned blacks from speaking at priesthood meetings and firesides.

Where was Mitt?  He didn’t protest or march in support of principled blacks who were denied full participation in the Latter-day Saints church. They had to wait for a revelation. Yet corrupt and immoral thieves and vandals have Mitt’s full support.

What’s driving Mitt Romney?


Leftist lunacy reaches fever pitch

June 8, 2020

Latest gambit: Though blacks make up approximately 15% of the population, they are now demanding that stores carry 15% of black owned brands as George Floyd is all but forgotten

We’ve all heard the adage: “The inmates are running the asylum.” Minneapolis proves it true as the majority of its city council, filled with self identified “activists,  artists,” a transgender woman, homosexuals and pro-abortion zealots have voted to dismantle the police.

Nine of the council’s 13 members, which includes not a single Republican, appeared with militants at a rally Sunday, vowing to end policing as the city currently knows it. Council member Jeremiah Ellison, son of the Minnesota’s Attorney General Keith Ellison, declared the council would “dismantle” the department.

“It’s clear that our system of policing is not keeping our communities safe,” Lisa Bender, council president, said. Bender declared that she and her colleagues were committed to “to end policing as we know it and recreate systems that actually keep us safe.”

When Mayor Jacob Frey tried walking a fine line on the issue of defunding and dismantling the police department, said, “I do not support the full abolition of the police department,” he was met with raucous shrieks ofShame, shame shame!”

In a related example of leftist lunacy, the New York Times’ editorial page editor has resigned following an op-ed by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), in which he advocated using federal troops to quell national protests that have destroyed property leaving devastation in their wake.

The newspaper announced Sunday that James Bennet, who had overseen the Times’ opinion pages since 2016, had stepped down “effective immediately.”

Sen. Tom Cotton’s op-ed, titled,Send in the Troops,” in which he advocated for the use of US military troops to quell civil unrest, and indicated the president would be justified in doing so under the Insurrection Act of 1807which empowers the President of the United States to deploy U.S. military and federalized National Guard troops within the United States in particular circumstances, such as to suppress civil disorder, insurrection and rebellion.

Past presidents have used the Insurrection Act, sending military to Southern states to ensure court-ordered desegregation of schools in the 1950s and 1960s, and at the request of several states to suppress riots in 1968. It was most recently used in 1992, when troops were sent to Los Angeles after Gov. Pete Wilson sought federal intervention during the Los Angeles riots which resulted in 63 deaths, 2,383 injuries and 12,111 arrests, following rioting, looting and arson, resulting in an excess of  $billion in destruction over charges of police brutality. The chaos arose from a prolonged traffic chase and beating of a black DUI motorist resisting arrest which he knew violated the terms of his parole in his latest robbery conviction.

The mob later turned on an uninvolved white truck driver, pulling him out of his vehicle in an intersection and seriously battering him with cement blocks.

Sen. Cotton’s op-ed caused a revolt among Times reporters, with some protesting staff calling in sick. The Times later wrote that a review found that the op-ed did not meet its standards. The newspaper’s solution? Reducing the number of op-eds! Opposing views to those of the far left Times are intolerable in what Americans have naively regarded as the unbiased press.

The NY Times, like the biased and seriously failing Arizona Republic, stand as examples that it is not a double standard we face, but rather no standard that deviates from grinding Leftism.


Black AZ legislator speaking truth about Floyd faces condemnation

June 7, 2020

As leftist groups have elevated George Floyd to sainthood status since his suffocation death by a Minneapolis police officer who held a knee to his neck, it has become unacceptable to speak the truth about this less than sterling man. No one debates the fact that his death in the street captured on video was horrific. The officer who committed the act is facing Second Degree murder charges and three others are also in jail.  All have been fired.

Though he did not deserve to die in the manner he did, Floyd was far from a paragon of virtue. Due to the fact that he was black and killed by a white police officer, proportionality has been lost and violent national riots ensued. That the police were initially called based on the allegation that Floyd attempted to pass a counterfeit bill in a store has faded into oblivion, as has the fact that his autopsy revealed illicit drugs in his system and he has a documented criminal past, as the New York Post reports. But like John McCain, Floyd has been eulogized at funerals in three different states, which is apparently a new norm.

State Rep. Walter Blackman, (LD-6) a self-identified Constitutional Conservative with an outstanding military background is the first black Republican elected in the state of Arizona, making him not only an anomaly, but also suspect.  Appearing on KFYI 550 AM radio talk show, The Conservative Circus,” hosted by James T. Harris, Blackman boldly denounced the Black Lives Matter organization, saying it had been infiltrated by Antifa hoodlums, emphatically adding “I do not support George Floyd and I refuse to see him as a martyr. But I hope his family receives justice.”

 He described Black Lives Matter as an “ideology that goes against the very concepts and precepts of our principles in the United States.”

“They started out one way, and they were about helping the community and pulling themselves up,” he said. “Today, they have splinter organizations that have moved away from the original message that have been infiltrated by antifa … and the message is not the same as it was.”

In response to Rep. Blackman’s honesty, the far-left ACLU led the chorus against him, preposterously saying it would “not affiliate with someone who does not share our values of uplifting marginalized communities and rooting out racism.”

The much more pertinent fact is that Rep. Walter Blackman shares the values of the constituents he so ably represents. Race has nothing to do with it. 


Posthumously unmasking John McCain as leftist, jealous tool

May 28, 2020

The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft intriguingly headline’s his recent post.It’s Coming” – Reporter Adam Housley on Spygate Scandal: Names to Watch. McMaster, Rosenstein and John McCain.”

Hoft whets our appetites with this compelling morsel, “FOX News reporter put up a series of tweets this weekend on the ongoing Obama spygate scandal. According to Housley the scandal involves corrupt officials from both parties and he suggests that the case is moving swiftly and that these three men are in the crosshairs: H. R. McMaster, Rod Rosenstein and deceased US Senator and Trump-hater John McCain.”

 Never fans of slippery McCain, SRAZ wrote,McCain’s vicious anti-Trump schemes revealed posthumously.”

Count on the fact that we will stay on top of what appears to be a gigantic reveal.

In the meantime, we encourage you to get a full fledged background on Rod Rosenstein and his wife by reading,Who Is Lisa H. Barsoomian?  Brace yourself for the blatant partisanship, with deep links to Hillary Clinton, that was an integral part of the scheme to take down Donald Trump. In 2013, John McCain referred to Hillary as a “rock star he could support for president” in 2016 SRAZ revealed, both had longstanding ties to Socialist billionaire, George Soros, who distains sovereign national borders.

Of primary importance is the fact that viciously jealous McCain hand-carried the contrived Steele “dossier” to then-FBI Director James Comey, in an effort to discredit Republican candidate presidential candidate Donald Trump:

“I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain said. He was well aware of the fact that the fraudulent document was funded by the Democrat National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

You’ll never read any of this in the McCain worshiping, Hillary-endorsing, local newspaper, now undeniably suffering its own death throes.


Who are the Dems eyeing as their Harry Truman?

May 17, 2020

Similarities between 1944 and 2020

Is a bucket of warm “spit” the Democrats’ Vice Presidential best choice? Make time to read Victor Davis Hanson’s cogent mental floss, regarding their pivotal selection of a running mate for feeble Joe Biden.

In a pathetic act of political desperation, Biden has already pledged to name a woman as his running mate and will likely bow to party pressure to ensure she’s a minority. Plumbing and melanin, which determines skin color, both genetic incidentals over which none of us have a choice, now take precedent over actual qualifications.

Selecting a running mate is always a paramount consideration for a presidential candidate, all the more so for nearly 78-year-old Biden, whose increasingly garbled speech, confusion and disorientation are indicators of dementia according to this Mayo Clinic list.


Contrived FBI, DOJ charges against Gen. Flynn dropped

May 8, 2020

Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton succinctly addresses the travesty that has played out against retired Army General Michael Flynn in this single, powerful paragraph.

This April 21, 2020 report provides revealing information, proving the bright light of exposure is the best disinfectant. Not only are the anti-Donald Trump text and email exchanges between former FBI official Peter Strzok and his girlfriend former FBI attorney Lisa Page, accessible — they both detested Trump, who they call an “utter idiot” — but John McCain’s key role in trying to remove Pres. Donald Trump is also exposed.

It should not be forgotten that the deception came from the highest levels as former FBI Director James Comey engaged in a cover-up of Hillary Clinton’s misuse of her classified email server while serving as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State. He opted not to charge her, despite her lies and attempts to scrub all evidence of her abuses. Comey acknowledged, “None of these e-mails should have been on any kind of unclassified system, but their presence is especially concerning because all of these e-mails were housed on unclassified personal servers not even supported by full-time security staff, like those found at Departments and Agencies of the U.S. Government.” Still, he gave her an undeserved pass.

Although the dropping of the fallacious charges against honorable Gen. Flynn — who was bankrupted trying to defend himself — dominated the news late Thursday when the story broke, this morning’s edition of the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic ignored the report altogether. It doesn’t play into its agenda as a reliable arm of the Democrat Party. Gen. Flynn will survive. The skewed news rag, not worthy of being called a “newspaper,will not.

The Wall Street Journal editorially covers the farce, rightly terming it,The Vindication of Michael Flynn… Justice drops its prosecution with new evidence about the FBI.
