Phil Boas asks God for deliverance from Pres. Trump

June 15, 2018

With FBI Director Christopher Wray’s new release of facts from the 500+ page Department of Justice Inspector General’s report regarding the “rooting out of bias” perpetrated against presidential candidate Donald Trump* from within the highest levels of government, examine the same type of anti-Trump bias displayed right here in Arizona. In this instance, we’re not referring to the contrived attempt at influence peddling by former president Bill Clinton as he boarded the plane of then-U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport as it appeared increasingly likely his wife would face criminal charges — which ultimately never materialized. They claimed to have discussed their grandchildren.

No. These hits don’t originate with D.C. power brokers or with a partisan former FBI Director shamefully exemplified by James Comey, who gave the deceitful Mrs. Clinton a pass for her countless illicit transgressions, but on the pages of the local newspaper where relentless attacks against candidate, and now President Donald Trump, remains the subject of multi-pronged, repetitive hits.

Who can forget Phil Boas? He’s the editorial page editor of the anorexic and failing Arizona Republic, better known for his loathsome dedication to bringing down 6-term Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio — Boas’ own father-in-law.

All Republicans — except pretenders John McCain and Jeff Flake — are worthy of this partisan goon’s savagery. He despises President Donald Trump with such visceral animosity that his editorial regarding the historic Singapore meeting Trump negotiated with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a leading despot on the world’s stage, is titled, “God help us if Trump solved N. Korea.”

It so rankles Boas that the businessman President who wrote, “The Art of the Deal,” just might have averted a global nuclear catastrophe, it leaves him editorially sputtering, “God help us,” numerous times in the editorial. Boas has lived to middle age without comprehending that those words are uttered by desperate people seeking divine intervention in hopeless situations. 

Those of us who comprehend the significance of such a meeting that has not previously occurred in any administration in nearly 75 years — since the Korean peninsula was divided following World War II — are awed by this extraordinary summit, that showcased cordiality from the leaders of both countries.

Rather than rejoicing or giving credit where it’s due, Phil Boas begrudgingly concedes, “It’s a long shot, but there is reason to believe Trump could actually pull this off. Kim could have caught the vision,“ he contemptuously writes, “and if he has, he could make Trump look like a genius.”

Followed by another plea, “God help us.”

The Hillary Clinton-endorsing liberals at the newspaper would rather have nukes aimed at the United States, Japan and South Korea than concede that President Trump should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.  Barack Obama received the honor simply for breathing. He was nominated within 12 days of taking the oath of office. Read the fascinating time line by attorney Tommy De Seno.

And, as far as the local newspaper? If you’re still one of the remaining subscribers, ditch it. Why support a publication that holds you and our president in contempt?

* As usual, the U.K.”s Daily Mail provides excellent in-depth coverage.


GOP establishment back to pushing amnesty deal

June 14, 2018

The lyin’ Ryan Express delivers amnesty cargo

President Trump was non-equivocal when he issued this Immigration Principles and Policies letter to House and Senate Leaders on October 8. 2017.

He ended up acquiescing on major portions of his policy when signing the omnibus spending bill after being steamrolled by the GOP establishment led by House Speaker Paul Ryan, who is retiring at the end of this term. Like Arizona senators McCain and Flake, Republicrat Ryan has long been bonded to amnesty for illegal aliens, in all of its incarnations, including chain migration. There is not an iota of difference between the Republican posers and the most liberal Democrats.

The omnibus excluded construction of Trump’s wall, expanded “Catch and Release” for illegals, and did not fund 1,000 new deportation agents as the president requested. It was released, passed by Congress, and rushed to Trump’s desk within days. 

In March, when faced with the no-wall omnibus, an irate Trump  threatened to veto the $1.3 trillion dollar bill, signing it just hours ahead of a deadline to avert a midnight government shutdown and keep military funding.

“There are a lot of things I’m unhappy about in this bill,” he said at the time. (video). “I say to Congress, I will never sign another bill like this again.”

Here we are in June 2018, and the identical strategy is being used to rush Trump into an immigration deal sure to demoralizes his populist base, aids Chamber of Commerce illegal labor profiteers, and breaths new life into his opponents preceding the crucial midterm congressional elections.

The duplicitous Ryan calls for passage of the amnesty bill next week, though it has not been completed or released yet.  “So This is Ryan acting like [Rep. Nancy] Pelosi: “Vote first, read later,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).

Citing a Harvard-Harris poll, John Binder, writing for Breitbart News, noted nearly 2 out of 3 Republican voters say reducing overall immigration to the U.S. is more important than tax cuts or repealing and replacing Obamacare. Only job creation led the immigration issue.

The Alien Incarceration Report jointly released June 6, 2018 by the U.S. Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, reveals the shocking rate of criminality among illegals incarcerated in the Bureau of Prisons. The numbers are on page 1 under Summary of Findings.

Do yourself a favor and read Ann Coulter’s most recent take on this debacle in the making titled,Meanwhile, ten miles from the White House…

In Coulteresque style, she minces no words.

Ann Coulter explains amnesty end game to Koch Bros.

June 10, 2018

Soon to retire, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s amnesty deceit defies logic

Conservative syndicated columnist and lawyer Ann Coulter is right on target again as she takes on the big money funding amnesty for illegals.  During an interview with Fox Business’s ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight,’ Coulter told the Koch brothers “good luck” with an amnesty, noting that mass immigration has slowly handed over electoral dominance to Democrats as foreign-born voters are vastly more supportive of liberals than conservatives.

Breitbart carries the interview and report, which includes this Coulter quote:

“I’m apparently going to have to spend my entire adult life fighting amnesty. Why is this the one bill that comes up every term of Congress. How many different ways can the American people say they don’t want it. This is for the donors. They want their cheap labor. And since I suspect — I mean, I know, blue collar workers and the working class don’t want it and I think more of your viewers are probably those Chamber of Commerce types.

Good luck to you Koch brothers under a government run by Nancy Pelosi. Because that’s what you’re getting if you keep bringing in cheap labor that votes against you 70 to 30.”

On his way out the political door, and despite assurances he would not do so, deceptive House Speaker Paul Ryan is preparing to serve up another rehashed platter of putrid amnesty as a parting shot at American workers and contemptibly timed to negatively impact Republicans in the midterm elections. Trying to figure out what drives Ryan is a fool’s errand, since his actions defy logic.

McCain, via his surrogates, still shoving amnesty

June 4, 2018

Continues to align with Democrats to force amnesty on Americans

Let’s cut to the chase. Does anyone actually believe seriously ill John McCain is tweeting his intent to give Americans another kick in the amnesty?  Arizona’s Senior Senator, who underwent surgery performed by his Scottsdale Mayo physicians for an aggressive form of brain cancer in July 2017, has not returned to Washington in months —-  arriving at this his last public appearance in a wheel chair. A previous notable exception was when he shocked with this obviously rehearsed, dramatic thumbs down vote on what was termed the “skinny repeal“ of Obamacare. The likelihood of him appearing in D.C. again in an upright position is nil.

Still McCain, nearing 82, is credited with writing books, sending out numerous tweets, and sparing with political adversaries, despite the fact that colleagues who have visited him at his Cornville, Arizona ranch describe him as “frail.“ It’s obvious his aides and surrogates are working overtime while they still have jobs.

But John McCain, who has recently been planning his own funeral, has one last scheme up his sleeve. According to Neil Munro writing for Breitbart News, McCain is reprising his previous forays, going back to his collusion with liberal Ted Kennedy, foisting amnesty on America‘s citizens. He’s allied with Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer for decades to push bills that would not halt illegal immigration or protect Americans from the economic impact of a flooded labor-market. Those business-backed amnesty bills were deeply unpopular among voters and played a large role in helping Donald Trump — who boldly addressed the problem — win the presidency.

And what a surprise! The McCain-backed new 2018 discharge-petition amnesty bill includes no protections for Americans, no reforms of immigration law, and no funds for a border wall.

McCain’s border deceit is legend. In 2010, as he was running for election amid negative polls, he advocated for the construction of a  border fence (video) while reciting a litany of crimes committed by illegal invaders. His doppelganger Jeff Flake used the same ploy, nearly setting the Arizona Republic on it’s ear with his pre-election shocker. The liberals at the newspaper need not have worried. Flake did his turnaround immediately after the ballots were counted as he joined his mentor McCain, a contingent of Democrats and two other RINOs for another amnesty misadventure. Former AZ Sen. Jon Kyl (video) now a D.C. lobbyist, engaged in the same endemic pre-election border deception.

Read the Breitbart article to get the full thrust of the far left supporters of this latest amnesty McTrickery.

This photo shows a gleeful McCain with some of his Gang of Eight amnesty cohorts during an earlier amnesty attempt, which fortunately failed.

Boehner rips GOP, Pres. Trump, but OK with pot

June 1, 2018

Former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has assessed the Republican Party and found it wanting. You remember Boehner? He’s the guy who broke into tears and slurred his words at the drop of a martini glass. The one who was so fond of tanning lamps that he sported an orange-tinged face.

Now, staging a rendition of Jeff Flake’s favorite tune, Boehner is warbling, “President Trump has ruined the Republican Party.”

“There is no Republican party. There’s a Trump party. The Republican Party is kinda taking a nap somewhere,” he recently told attendees at the Mackinac Policy Conference in Michigan.

“Well, you know, Donald Trump, who I know well, was one of my supporters, when I was speaker,” Boehner incoherently recalled. “I was having a rough week, Trump would call me, pat me on the back, cheer me up, played a lot of golf together. But president? Really? I never quite saw this.”

To calm his angst, Boehner, who resigned under pressure in 2015, has taken a new gig as spokesman  for the U.S. marijuana industry, joining the advisory board of Acreage Holdings, a company that cultivates, processes and dispenses cannabis in 11 U.S. states.  It was originally known by the more accurately descriptive name of High Street Holdings.

An odd man who exemplified the Peter Principle, Boehner was previously quoted as saying he was “unalterably opposed” to legalization of marijuana. 

Now he says, “Over the last 10 or 15 years, the American people’s attitudes have changed dramatically. I find myself in that same position. My thinking on cannabis has evolved.” How much it cost to have his thinking “evolve, ” we might never know. Acreage Holdings did not to disclose his salary.

Boehner’s son-in-law could also be a compelling factor for his change of heart on weed.

Marijuana remains federally illegal and is classified as a Schedule I narcotic, under the Controlled Substance Act.

Educrats advocate for shutting down schools …again, nationally

May 21, 2018

This time the concept of depriving American children of their rightful taxpayer funded education is even more odious than when the Arizona #REDSforED leftist union member schoolteachers, led by a 24-year-old self-identified Socialist and Bernie Sander’s Arizona presidential campaign organizer who teaches hip-hop music, abandoned students for over a week. They marched and shouted, demanding a 20% pay hike. When Gov. Doug Ducey foolishly acquiesced to their extortionist tactics, it wasn’t good enough. They are now pressing forward with a ballot initiative to impose higher taxes on “the rich,” who already pay the lion’s share. There was a time when people aspired to be successful and provide jobs for others. Now the risk takers who worked long hours to achieve their goals — not 8 1/2 months a year — are despised for their accomplishments.

Arne Duncan, Barack Obama’s Secretary of Education has responded via Twitter to a ludicrous suggestion by his former deputy, Peter Cunningham, that America’s 50 million school parents should keep their children out of school until the Second Amendment is eradicated. This came in response to the latest school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas by a teen mass murderer last Friday. Duncan called Cunningham’s suggestion, “brilliant.”

The U.K.’s Daily Mail covered the issue. With strict gun laws imposed in Great Britain, murderous assailants have taken to using knives and intentionally careening vehicles to carry out their bloody carnage, randomly slashing people or mowing down pedestrians in popular tourist locations. Do we outlaw auto dealerships and sales of butcher and kitchen knives as well?

Curbing violence as entertainment would be a better start.

USAToday’s hypocritical coverage of shooter on Trump property

May 20, 2018

In Saturday’s edition, Gannett-owned USA Today devoted all of four sentences to its coverage of a man engaged in a shootout with police at a property owned by President Trump. The insert that was intended to plump up the anorexic Arizona Republic, is, itself anorexic — consisting of only three pages (the fourth is a full page ad).

Excluding the headline that repeated the gist of the compressed coverage, 101 words were devoted to this report:

Man injured in police shootout at Miami-area Trump resort

   Gunfire erupted early Friday at President Trump’s Miami-area golf resort, as a Florida man shouting anti-Trump rhetoric fired into the hotel lobby’s chandelier and waited for police to arrive for what one official called an “ambush-type attack,” police said.

   Five police officers from Miami-Dade County and the city of Doral exchanged gunfire with the man, injuring him, and quickly ending the threat at the Trump-owned Trump National Doral Golf Club, Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez said.

   Trump was not at the suburban golf resort at the time.

   Perez identified the suspect as 42-year-old Jonathan Oddi, who lives about a mile away.

That’s it, folks! End of story. There were only indents, no paragraph spacing (as shown here) in the terse report  Donald Trump is not worthy of anything other than derogatory coverage — certainly nothing that would express concern over the well-being of the President of the United States or any of his family members.

Imagine if an active shooter had arrived in the lobby of the Clinton Foundation shouting anti-Hillary Clinton invectives. Such an assault on the pay-to-play, money-laundering facility of the defeated 2016 Democrat presidential candidate would have been worthy of front and center coverage, including an oversized color photo of a distressed Hillary staring up at the shattered chandelier, with a contrived tear rolling down her puffy cheek.

USA Today editorially endorsed scandal-plagued Clinton’s failed presidential bid with this headline: Trump is ‘unfit for the presidency.’

In Dec. 2003, Gannett stock peaked at $51.14 per share. It closed on May 17, 2018 at $11.61. It’s been down as low as $2.21.

This is what happens when journalism takes a hike and is replaced by raw partisan gamesmanship.
