Anti-Trump press gears up for 2020 election

August 17, 2019

Media afflicted by Trump Derangement Syndrome

Editor & Publisher provides an inside look at how the press intends to cover the 2020 Presidential election.

The pathetic 2019 quarterbacking report is filled with recriminations over not giving enough significance to Donald Trump’s emergence on the political scene and the press’ assumptions that he was nothing more than an annoying gnat on the backside of the anointed donkey-rider Hillary Clinton.

Absent is the fact that American citizens were energized by his MAGA message and fed up with scandal-plagued Hillary, who arrogantly dismissed us as a “basket of deplorables.” The equally arrogant press’ most colossal blunder was misreading the electorate, whom they regarded as easily duped by their incessant left-wing coverage.

Realizations of the massive awakening across America was a pill too difficult to swallow. Voters heard a compelling message from the political novice New York businessman. There was an unmistakable authentic clarity to his message.  Hillary’s fate was sealed as reports trickled out of her involvement in the destruction of thousands of emails when they were under congressional subpoena and preservation orders. A practiced charlatan, she blatantly lied about the attacks resulting in the deaths of four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador, at the embassy in Benghazi, Libya. Prior to the Presidential debate, her cohort Donna Brazile — a political strategist and former DNC chair — using her position as a CNN commentator, fed the questions in advance to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. These are merely tip-of-the-iceberg corruptions in which Hillary engaged.

Meanwhile Donald Trump was building a loyal base raising the issues that resonate with Americans from coast to coast. Since being elected he has gone to work fulfilling his promises and has overseen the lowest unemployment rates in decades. The economy is soaring and he’s nominated two justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and many others to the federal district benches.

Editor & Publisher erroneously concludes, “Disillusioned voters blamed the press for a failure to present Trump as a viable nominee, let alone as their likely future president. Some declared that journalists missed the story of the Trump voter entirely.”

The publication either doesn’t comprehend the enormity of President Trump’s energized base or chooses to ignore it. Despite the leftist press’ irrational excuses, and predictions to the contrary, Americans won  (video) and will again in 2020.

Illegal aliens: The stark realities

August 15, 2019

A favorite cliché is “they’re just coming to do the jobs Americans refuse to do.”

We’ve heard the mantra incessantly over the years. The open-borders/amnesty influence peddlers on the left have been phenomenally successful at getting the Beltway elite and the media to embrace their blanket platitudes about illegal alien invaders. In fact the term itself has been declared verboten by none other than Associated Press.

The deceit surges as elections near. Democrats exploit the issue to lay the groundwork for embracing a racial divide they hope will benefit them. Presidential candidates and U.S. Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, both part of this leftist horde of two dozen challenging President Trump, are vowing to create a White House office to combat “white supremacy” and hate crimes if elected.

Ignored are the vicious crimes perpetrated by illegal aliens.

This headline is a recent example: Illegal alien impregnates 11-year-old Phoenix girl.

Child rapist Carlos Jacinto Cobo-Perez must have been inspired by Enrique Jacobo-Valdez, another illegal alien with a proclivity for 11-year-olds.

Mauricio Berrar-Navidad, 29, and Carlos Palacios-Amaya, 28, both in the United States illegally, though previously deported, repeatedly raped an 11-year-old child in Maryland.

Fidel Lopez, boasting a sixth-grade education preferred raping a small dog, which subsequently had to be euthanized.

United States Illegal Alien Crime Report is filled with recent crimes committed by illegal aliens. The wide variety of criminal categories includes: Terrorism, Assault, Murder, Cop Killings. Drug Crimes, Rape, Children, DUIs, Identity Theft and Most Wanted. Spend some time on the site for a dose of harsh reality.

Don’t be conned by the open borders leftists. Our sieve-like border must be secured. The safety of American citizens takes precedence over misguided and dangerous political correctness.


2020 Presidential Election: Crucial facts, your vital role

August 14, 2019

it’s a good bet that even those who consider themselves politically astute wouldn’t be able to name many of the seemingly endless list of increasingly radical 2020 Democrat presidential candidates.

Our focus is on reelecting President Donald J. Trump, whose first term accomplishments* have exceeded the expectations of even his most ardent supporters. 

Fox News provides this wide-ranging site to keep us informed on nearly every aspect of the political scene with continually updated information. The compilations include a national map detailing where candidates have been on the campaign trail, and how much they’ve raised in campaign contributions — with President Trump prominently topping the list. 

What is most significant is the populist president’s support among small dollar donors. In a powerful show of strength, he’s even doing surprisingly well in leftist California, the Times of San Diego reports. Sixty-one percent of contributions raised directly by the Trump campaign this election cycle has come from small donors (donations under $200), according to Federal Election Commission figures.

The map shows the states he’s visited recently. Under campaign visits is a box labeled “Heat Map of All Candidates,” which includes a pull down list of candidates. President Trump is definitely connecting with his base.

He’s doing his job. We need to do ours.

It’s vitally important we recruit GOP precinct committeemen to ensure the president’s reelection. Precinct committeemen (PCs) can be appointed until they are elected during primaries in their own neighborhoods and are integral in getting the vote out. There is no campaigning for the unsalaried, but essential job that is an influential voice for freedom.  Any questions can be answered here.

Aging small fry used against Bill Montgomery’s Supreme Court appt

August 13, 2019

There’s a new, albeit pathetic arrow, in the quiver of the leftist newspaper’s relentless campaign to scuttle Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery’s appointment to the Arizona Supreme Court. Since Montgomery made the short list, the partisan war against him has revved into high gear.

Gov. Doug Ducey has approximately 6 weeks to name the replacement to the seat of recently retired state Supreme Court Justice John Pelander.

Republican Montgomery was initially elected to lead the prosecutor’s office in the nation’s fourth most populous county in 2010, bringing a résumé of impressive credentials. A West Point graduate, decorated Gulf War veteran, former deputy county attorney and a professional prosecutor, he has dedicated his personal and professional life to serving others.

Though Montgomery’s credentials makes others pale in comparison, he has attracted a distinctly marginal detractor described in the newspaper’s Page One headline as a “son.” For a man in his 60s that’s more of a put-down than what he’s maliciously trying to serve to Montgomery. The “son” is the grandpa-aged child of former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. A RINO apple who didn’t fall far from his maternal tree — Sandra O’Connor reveled in being the swing vote frequently siding with the high court’s Democrats — Scott  thinks Montgomery is “too political” to be an effective Arizona Supreme Court Justice — an absurdity on it’s face.

Prior to Scott’s mother being appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, she also had a “political career.” Sandra O’Connor campaigned and was elected to the Arizona state senate, and later (prior to the current system of judicial selection) campaigned, ran and won a seat on the Maricopa County Superior Court as a Republican. But she was sufficiently left-leaning enough for liberal Democrat Bruce Babbitt, that the then-governor appointed her to the Arizona Court of Appeals in 1979. That fact alone should have given President Reagan pause.

Unfortunately, she was able to con President Reagan who nominated her as the first woman on the U.S. Supreme Court, where she delighted in being the swing vote, regularly aligning with Democrats. Reagan knew the O’Connor’s as friends of his Arizona in-laws.

In 2012, O’Connor’s son was the appropriately distrusted GOP Legislative District 28 chairman. At the time SRAZ wrote,Dist. 28 (formerly 11) recertifies its RINO status Update: O’Connor responds.”

Venomous column signals bent of Republic’s new ownership 

August 11, 2019

The steady decline of the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic appears to have exacerbated with its recent acquisition by Gatehouse. The newspaper was actually founded in 1890 as the Arizona Republican, a name it kept for nearly half a century. Later, the then-conservative newspaper flourished under the ownership of Eugene and Nina Pulliam, changing its direction after their deaths.

The best indication of the course being taken is the massive photo of an elephant’s backside atop this headline: “I leave GOP as it turns its back on what it stood for.”

The “Your Turn guest column,” a shifty vehicle for securing free editorials, is written by a Mesa immigration lawyer with the incongruous name of Yasser Sanchez. A dichotomy of complexities, he’s also a graduate of BYU.

As our astute readers have likely guessed, President Donald Trump is at the core of Sanchez’ complaints. Among Sanchez’ litany of criticisms is what he refers to by the left’s favored contrived term of “nativism.” “Nationalism,” a reliable indicator of love of country and patriotism is also the recipient of his ire. According to Sanchez, such feelings are pejoratives.

The lawyer needs to revisit our nation’s founding documents. Included in his litany of things that “sicken him” are the freedoms delineated in the Second Amendment. He is also “repulsed” by President Trump.

Sanchez, who says he came to the United States as a child with his parents doesn’t clarify if they entered legally, but he misuses the termundocumented immigrantswhen describing illegal aliens, the legally correct, precise term used by the U.S. Supreme Court.  The high court has decided numerous cases involving federal immigration law using “illegal alien” — as Hans von Spakovsky, Senior Legal Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, capably points out in this brief column.

Sanchez also has an aversion to the term “invasion,” though it would be interesting to know what he calls hundreds of thousands of people who illegally breach our sovereign border on their way to accessing American taxpayer funded benefits while flipping off border agents.

As pointed out in this Media Research Center’s now older though still accurate report,The Liberal Media: Every Poll Shows Journalists Are More Liberal than the American Public — And the Public Knows It.”

The policy of insulting its few remaining readers that brought Gannett and the industry to it’s knees, is obviously the path the that will be followed by the newspaper’s new ownership.

If you still subscribe, save your money. The insults will keep coming.  Why fund them?


Will Arizona go to (recreational) pot?

August 10, 2019

The sham of imperiling our youth for the promise of $300 million a year

The guise of medical marijuana has been a scheme that fooled no one. Suddenly there was a rise in youthful patients experiencing “chronic pain” and desperately in need of a “prescription” dispensed by pain doctors, who just happened to be working out of dispensaries with a marijuana plant on the building‘s signage.

The deceptively titledSmart and Safe Arizona Act* was filed Friday with the Secretary of State’s Office. There is little doubt the well-funded measure will collect the necessary signatures to be on the 2020 ballot.

To make the initiative with the deceptive name appear palatable to Arizona voters who turned down a similar measure in 2016, the current version has seemingly socially conscientious provisions attached via a 16% excise tax — including $15 million from the “medical fund” to be directed to the state universities’ Arizona Teacher Academy, $10 million to the Department of Health Services for public health programs and $10 million to the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to reduce impaired driving. Stoned drivers presumably will not get the same level of scrutiny as inebriated ones, who aren’t integral to the charade. It also promises to create thousands of “good-paying jobs” across Arizona, no doubt in dispensaries. The few penalties that are incorporated in the initiative are nothing more than a slap on the wrist.

Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy raises awareness about the harms of marijuana and other substances, and opposes the legalization of marijuana. Its website states: Marijuana is a harmful, addictive substance. Public policy decisions involving marijuana should be based on science, not made in the ballot box.

As a gift to those with multiple convictions, the ballot initiative facilitates expungement and sealing of arrest records, convictions, adjudications, and sentences that were predicated on conduct made lawful by this Act.

For those seeking a more rational, medical assessment of marijuana usage, we urge you to readMarijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence,” a Hillsdale College Imprimus article by Alex Berenson. He details a conversation with his wife, Dr. Jacqueline Berenson, then a senior psychiatrist at Mid-Hudson Forensic Psychiatric Institute. It’s one of three places the state of New York sends the criminally mentally ill defendants judged not guilty by reason of insanity.

There’s no flim-flam. Just cold, hard facts you won’t soon forget. We hope you’ll recall the article when it comes time to vote on this sow’s ear of a measure.
