Arizona Daily Independent provides comic relief

June 17, 2018

Thanks to the folks at Arizona Daily Independent (ADI) for once again linking their Sunday Comic to a SRAZ post.

ADI’s Red Pill Approved Comics are often based on Arizona news, which is routinely discouraging to conservatives. They have a knack for bringing hilarity to dedicated leftists such as the desperate Phil Boas, who is the editorial page editor of the failing Arizona Republic.  

Enjoy!

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.


Infantile Jeff Flake subject of ADI cartoon

June 10, 2018

Once again SRAZ sends a “thank you” to the Arizona Daily Independent newspaper (ADI) for providing a humorous take on our recent post, “Jeff Flake: Ego-driven, delusional, loses grip on reality.”

ADI’s Sunday Comic depicts Flake as an infant in need of adult supervision, with a link to our post.


Charles Krauthammer’s unexpected farewell

June 9, 2018

Many of us know Charles Krauthammer as a Fox News contributor, who possesses a wry wit and intellectually probing mind.  He’s also a Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist. But to many, his shining moment came with the publication of his memoir, “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes and Politics.”

In that bio intertwined with a collection of essays we learned about the youthful Democrat, turned mature Republican, born in New York and raised in Montreal, in a French speaking family. While in his first year studying at Harvard Medical School, he was permanently paralyzed from the neck down in a diving accident that severed his spinal cord, He resolutely continued his studies while hospitalized for over a year, ultimately graduating as a psychiatrist.

The book, which sold more than a million copies, was on The New York Times Nonfiction Bestseller list for 38 weeks, placing at Number 1 on the list for four weeks in January 2014.

If we weren’t fans watching him on Fox, particularly interacting with Bret Baier on “Special Report,” the book sealed the deal. It was difficult not to notice his absence from the news panels. Yesterday we found out more than we wanted to hear about his whereabouts. Krauthammer has been seriously ill, and in fact, is dying of a now rapidly spreading malignancy, that was regarded as successfully removed and treated until recently.

In his classic style, he sent this letter out to his colleagues; friends and viewers, stating that his doctors have given him only a few weeks left to live. ”This is the final verdict,” he says.  “My fight is over.”

Bret Baier honors Dr. Charles Krauthammer, his friend and associate, here,

He’s already missed.


AZ Republic’s leftist skew conceals truth, distorts facts

June 7, 2018

Reports lack facts, sugar-coat hate monger

SRAZ has ventured into the mind-numbing arena of the AZ Republic’s irrational reports recently. The conjecture, extreme leftwing skew and wishing-it-were-so cover-ups are appalling.

May 27, we brought our readers, Major reason to steer clear of deceptive AZ Republic. It was followed on June 2, by AZ Republic: Foolish reports take center stage again. With these “reports” coming at breakneck speed, it’s difficult to keep up with them. They are not only foolish, they are deceitful.

Today we present a couple of headlined articles worth delving into:

 Headline Number One: “Lawmakers to Pentagon: Reverse transgender ban.”

Bear in mind there are 100 voting senators and 435 representatives. Both chambers hold Republican majorities. There were “over 100 members” who signed the letter written by U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy,III (D-MA) to Defense Secretary James Mattis demanding a reversal of the Pentagon’s ban on transgender people from military service. The policy originally authorizing transgender troops was instituted by Barack Obama.

Countless searches failed to locate a copy of the letter or any of the signers, though it reportedly concluded with this zinger: “If President Trump and his administration are committed to all of our service members, they will immediately reverse this bigoted ban.”

Headline Number Two: “Louis Farrakhan Jr, dies at Phoenix home.”

“His father, Louis Farrakhan,” according to the newspaper, “is known for preaching a conservative message of self-reliance and family values coupled with black empowerment, but has drawn criticism for fostering anti-Semitic views in the past.”

The past?

Louis Farrakhan, the head of the black separatist Nation of Islam, never preached conservative messages. His anti-Semitism has remained virulent, hateful and incites violence. In March 2018 during a Saviours’ Day event to commemorate the life of Nation of Islam founder Master Fard Muhammad, Louis Farrakhan had some choice descriptions of Jewish people. The “powerful Jews,” he told the audience inside Chicago’s Wintrust Arena, “are my enemy.” The Jews are also “responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out turning men into women and women into men.” He issued a threat to the Jewish community, saying , “Farrakhan has pulled the cover off the eyes of the Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”

In 1986, the Nation of Islam, moved its headquarters to Phoenix, where Farrakhan directed the group.

Farrakhan contemptibly claims Jews committed the 9/11 terrorist attacks in order to start a war between the West and the Muslim world, and to enable the “Jewish owner” of the World Trade Center to collect billions of dollars in insurance money.

National Review recently wrote about Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic tweets. He’s known for praising Hitler and derided Judaism as a “gutter religion.”

Even the radically leftist Southern Poverty Law Center, also known to foment hatred, refers to the Nation of Islam as a hate group. They can recognize one of their own, but the Arizona Republic wears blinders.


Jeff as Flaky as ever: Still bonded to Cuban dictators

June 6, 2018

A quick perusal of the soon-to-be-departing Sen. Jeff Flake’s press releases shows the contrarian still pushing his anti-Trump rhetoric. He hammers the president for his imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminum products, intended to put the USA back In the economic driver’s seat.

In his commencement address to graduates of Harvard  Law School, he inanely slammed the president — without mentioning his name —- for guiding a a national descent  into “rank tribalism.”

He defended his indefensible votagainst the nomination of CIA Director Gina Haspel, who was confirmed by a 54-45 vote. Then with his seriously ill mentor John McCain nowhere In sight, the vacuous Flake finally voted “aye.”

These brutish actions were all just lead-ins to his most recent inexcusable action, but one he has been bonded to for decades. The fact is, Jeff Flake has a fondness for dictators. Communist tyrants like the murderous Castro brothers who violently repressed their own countrymen, have long topped his list.

Breitbart News provides a ringside view into the most recent Flakiness with an article titled, “Jeff Flake Lends Support to Cuba’s Puppet President.”

The meeting was the first with an American government guest since Diaz-Canel took office. He remains subordinate to the country’s leader, dictator Raul Castro.

 “It was certainly a friendly meeting with the president, he very much … he’s an engineer and was certainly, talking about this subject, was very fluent in what is needed in Cuba and the benefits that come from greater connectivity,” Flake said.

Flake, who has compared democratically elected U.S. President Donald Trump to brutal Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin — recognized by historians as directly responsible for the deaths of at least 20 million people  — did not publicly challenge Diaz-Canel or any Cuban officials on the gross human rights violation the Castro regime has inflicted on its people for six decades.

In 2015, we posted, “Jeff Flake: Obama’s top Republican ally,”

Don’t hold your breath waiting to hear anything negative about the island nation’s Communist regime from Jeff Flake. He accompanied Barack Obama to Cuba to celebration Obama’s dropping of sanctions against Cuba.

Jeff Flake, whose main thrust has been pushing amnesty for illegal aliens, is leaving the U.S. Senate after one term due to his bottom-dragging 18 percent approval ratings, admitting he couldn’t win a primary election.

Dr. Kelli Ward, deserves your vote and support.


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.
