AZ Republic: Hypocrites in face of ISIS jihadist attacks

November 19, 2015

Newspaper lobs misplaced brickbats at conservative Republicans

In an irrational editorial that clearly defines its radically leftist lurch, the Arizona Republic places the blame for unspeakable acts of terror not on ISIS, but on…..conservative Republicans.

 Carrying the absurd title,“ ISIS hits and the right goes wobbly,” making the Islamic jihadist organization sound more like a paper tiger than a dedicated killing machine committed to ensuring  every knee bend to Allah and in total submission to Sharia law.

Barack Obama, who refuses to use the words radical Islam, referred to the coordinated murderous attacks across Paris as “a setback,” after one day earlier foolishly claiming ISIS was “contained.” (Video under link) Previously he deemed ISIS a “JV team.” French President Francois Hollande hesitated not a moment in declaring the slaughters as “an act of war.”

But in Republicese, blaming Republicans carries the day, since there’s not a chance liberal Democrats could ever be culpable. There’s no need to read the entire frenzied editorial, the first 83 words will more than suffice.

As to Barack Obama, the incompetent President of the United States, it’s well to remember his Sept. 25, 2012 speech delivered at the United Nations just days after the Sept. 11 Benghazi attack when Islamic militants stormed the American diplomatic compound in Libya, killing the American ambassador and three other Americans attached to the embassy.

Obama’s speech contained these words, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

With the forced release of Hillary Clinton’s emails, we now know Obama deceptively blamed what he termed “a crude and disgusting video [that] sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world,” as he tried to rationalize the attacks with trickery.

Obama is a liar. His regime’s operatives lied on his behalf, denying what we now know was a pre-planned act of terror and definitely not “spontaneous.” And Hillary Clinton, who will likely be the 2016 Democrat presidential nominee, and will undoubtedly win the endorsement of this embarrassing rag masquerading as a newspaper — lied as well.

Formerly fawning reporters turn on Obama

November 18, 2015

This is Barack Obama’s full press conference at the G-20 Summit in Antalya, Turkey which includes several reporters asking tough questions regarding U.S. policy in pursuing Islamic Jihadists.  The usually compliant media openly expressed frustration with Obama’s weak response to ISIS — which he alone refers to as ISIL.

In this shorter clip, CNN’s Jim Acosta bluntly asked, “I wanted to go back to something you said to Margaret (Brennan) earlier when you said you have not underestimated ISIS’s abilities. This is an organization that you once described as a ‘JayVee Team,’ that evolved into a force that has now occupied territory in Iraq and Syria and is now able to use that safe haven to launch attacks in other parts of the world. How is that not underestimating their capabilities? And how is that “contained,” quite frankly? And I think a lot of Americans have this frustration that they see that the United States has the greatest military in the world, it has the backing of nearly every other country in the world when it comes to taking on ISIS. I guess the question is, and if you’ll forgive the language, is why can’t we take out these bastards?”

Obama says the United States must welcome the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees, who are “subjected to vigorous screening and security checks” — something experts say is virtually impossible. He makes this claim despite the fact that at least two of the Paris terrorists entered Europe as part of the flood of “refugees” leaving Syria.

In the current GQ magazine which features Obama on the cover, he looked ahead to life after his 15 remaining months in the White House saying he has fantasized about owning a professional basketball team or holding the commissioner’s job for the National Basketball Association. Obama, an avid sports fan, couldn’t do as much damage in the sporting arena as he has as the ineffectual leader of the free world and an embarrassing Commander-in-Chief.

Since Jeff Flake routinely plays basketball with Obama perhaps he could join the soon-to-be-former president at his dream job with the NBA.  It would give the unpopular Flake another chance to take his shirt off and free up the Arizona senate seat for an actual conservative.

Terror in Paris: “We are from ISIS”

November 13, 2015

Following multiple, coordinated jihadi attacks throughout Paris, French government declares full State of Emergency, closes nation’s borders

We provide this link to Fox News, which appears to be updating its reports on the carnage in Paris. Latest indications are that scores people have been slaughtered in multiple, coordinated explosive attacks across the city. Approximately 160 concert goers reportedly have been executed.

French news sources confirm the Muslim jihadists carrying out the attack shouted, “This is for Syria” and the signature jihadist cry of “Allahu Akbar!” meaning Allah is greater.

In memory of the victims of tonight’s attack, the Eiffel Tower — the renown symbol of light in the City of Light — has gone dark.

Flake, Hughes, dog deaths case back to Grand Jury?

November 13, 2015

With the weather cooling to the point of making Arizonans remember why we’re grateful to live here, most of us prefer not to dredge up recollections of the merciless summer heat in the Valley.

But the sweltering 106 degree scorcher of June 20, 2014 is exactly where we need to focus our attention. It is being reported that a Maricopa County Superior Court judge is considering whether another grand jury should take another look at the case of the gruesome heat related deaths of nearly two dozen dogs crammed in a steamy utility room at the Green Acre boarding kennel in Gilbert. County Attorney Bill Montgomery sat on this case for an unconscionably long time.

If a new indictment is issued against vacationing kennel owners Todd and MaLeisa Hughes, what about the actual caretakers Logan and Austin Flake who were entrusted with running the facility and tending the family pets left in their care while Logan’s parents were in Florida?

The foursome was indicted October 16, 2014. From there, a scorecard is needed to keep up with who was charged and who was dropped.

Then as a grandiose 2014 Christmas Eve gesture, Montgomery dropped charges of animal cruelty against all four defendants, leaving a single fraud charge against the Hughes.

A Maricopa County Grand Jury reinstated charges against the Hughes May 6. The Flakes were mysteriously excluded. Politics abounds. Did we mention Austin Flake is the son of Sen. Jeff Flake?

When they returned from their vacation, Todd Hughes initially told the pet owners their dogs had all run away.  Later he and his wife MaLeisa claimed the deaths were the result of an accident when a dog chewed through an air-conditioning electrical cord, disabling the unit. The dogs died agonizing deaths, suffocating in the small room where they were left overnight without cooling, food or water. When the dead and dying dogs were discovered the following morning, the Flakes did not call for veterinary assistance, opting instead to hose down the dogs and then callously pile their carcasses in a shed.

The indictments caused Brigham Young University to expel Austin Flake, which allowed him to recast himself and his wife Logan as victims and sue the taxpayers of Maricopa County for $8 million dollars. If this obscene settlement is awarded, it will ease the reentry into the single world for the now divorcing Jr. Flakes. 

Anarchy reigns at University of Missouri

November 11, 2015

Threat: “This is just the beginning”

By now we’ve all heard about the student protests at the University of Missouri resulting in the resignations of the school’s president, Tim Wolfe and chancellor. R. Bowen Loftin. Amid demands for “racial justice” and insistence Wolfe acknowledge his “white male privilege,” the black activist student group known as Concerned Student 1950, made numerous other demands posted here in the Independent Journal.

Racism is not the issue. CNS News reports on the university’s black elected student body president, Peyton Head, discussing “empowerment.” This lunacy is rooted in leftist politics.

The school’s football team joined the fray after a black graduate student from a multimillionaire family,* began a hunger strike, bizarrely saying the dispute would either end with Wolfe resigning or the student dying. But it came down to the team, joined by its coach, using the threat of not playing its game against BYU, which if canceled would have cost the university well over $1 million.

Following Wolfe’s resignation, the university’s athletic department issued a statement that the football team would return to the practice field to prepare for its Saturday game.

After Wolfe weakly complied to the mob, the hunger striking student announced on Twitter that he had cancelled his self-imposed starvation.

“Our demands must be met in totality to create systems of healing within the UM System,” said Marshall Allen, one of the protesters. “In addition to this, students, staff and faculty of color must be involved in the process of deciding who will be our next UM System president.”

As is often the case, the adage “follow the money” works here. Not only is there the immense revenue generated by the football game, but there is also a back story that has received little attention. Unrest actually began in August when the university announced it would no longer be offering health insurance subsidies for graduate students. MU said it can no longer pay for graduate students’ health insurance because of changes in federal health care policy under Obamacare.

To no one’s surprise, the White House praised the protesters, though others regard the model of the football team holding the presidency hostage as setting a dangerous precedent and further proof that political correctness on university campuses has a stranglehold on rational thinking, making administrators who had recently been praised for their stewardship of a complex institution suddenly vulnerable to student mayhem.

Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder denounced a university faculty member who deprived student reporters of their First Amendment rights after she was videotaped harassing and trying to kick the reporters out of their “no media safe space.” Read his statement as reported on Mediaite here. Kinder will be running for governor on the Republican ticket in 2016.

John McCain makes “most vulnerable senators” list

November 10, 2015

Roll Call lists John McCain number six on the roster of the ten most vulnerable U.S. Senators on the 2016 ballot. Also on the list is Colorado Democrat Sen. Michael Bennet who threw in with McCain, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio, all elected as Republicans who teamed with liberal Dems on the infamous Gang of Eight — pushing amnesty for illegal aliens.

Snuggling up to McCain hasn’t helped Graham, now a long-shot presidential candidate. He’s so unpopular that he couldn’t rise high enough in polls to even make it on tonight’s second tier debate stage. Like McCain, Graham has been has been censured numerous times by local Republican Party officials in his home state of South Carolina for his collusion with Democrats. Both McCain and Flake were booed and met with turned backs and walkouts by elected state delegates at the Statutory Meeting of the Arizona Republican Party earlier this year.

Political canoodling with the toxic John McCain is clearly a sure-fire recipe for disaster.

Sham candidates aid McCain

November 9, 2015

Can’t win candidates flood the field, assist McCain

Why would an unknown and self-acknowledged “long shot” 74-year-old who believes in cryonics — the freezing of dead humans until a cure might be found for what killed them — be entering the AZ  U.S. Senate race to challenge John McCain?

And why would John McCain’s sycophantic reporter at the daily newspaper eagerly cover David Pizer’s late and unlikely entry into this race? Candidate Pizer has yet to find a campaign manager.

If Pizer sounds like a Jimmie Lee Deakin ringer to you, you’re not alone. Deakin, no economics wizard, was facing foreclosure on his home, only to mysteriously regain his financial footing at the conclusion of the election cycle. Known for his crassness, he also fumbled his FEC campaign filing. Deakin’s sole purpose was splitting the vote to help assure a McCain victory. It didn’t hurt that moneybags McCain outspent his conservative challenger former Congressman  J.D. Hayworth roughly ten to one — aided by 2008 taxpayer matching funds.

The more people with no chance to win take on McCain, the better it is for McCain. Siphoning off votes from an actual reputable challenger is madness at best. You can fill in what it is at worst.

Perennial candidate Clair Van Steenwyk, who calls himself Van the Radio Man, though he‘s nowhere on your radio dial, and Alex Meluskey, who wants to “streamline” our “flawed “ immigration system are cut from the same cloth.

Dr. Kelli Ward, a two term state senator and physician, who understands the complexities of the increasingly costly monstrosity known as Obamacare, has the credentials that give her a real chance to take out the senior senator who will be 80 by Election Day.

This election is too important to leave to egocentrics, bozos and a treacherous snake who has been censured by his home state Republican Party.

U.S. Senate terms are six long years. After more than three decades of McCain working to promote amnesty for illegals, collusion with the left to purge conservative elected precinct committeemen from the state GOP and targeting conservatives for IRS scrutiny, Arizonans deserve real representation.

In 2008, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay summed John McCain up very well with these words. He was right then. His words still resonate today.
