Faux Snooze (Fox News) veers left

March 19, 2019

“Fair and Balanced” should be retitled “Fake and Biased”

In the wake of the announcement that Fox News has disgracefully removed popular Judge Jeanine Pirro for speaking the truth, (video) we read that the once conservative network is bringing former Democratic National Committee chairman, Donna Brazile on-board as a commentator.

Who could forget Donna? She was exposed for informing members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign of questions in advance of a debate and town hall during the 2016 presidential primary and was forced to relinquish her position as DNC chair.

Hiring this slippery sneak is quite a coup for Fox News.

Now Judge Jeanine has been suspended for rightly calling into question the patriotism of hijab wearing, rabid anti-Semite U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Somali-born newly elected Democrat representing Minnesota.

Viewers are boycotting the cable network. President Donald Trump, a longtime friend of Judge Pirro, urged the network to “bring back” her show.”

In 2013 Rush Limbaugh was insightfully ahead of the pack when he advised a caller to “stop watching” Fox News. The caller was venting his frustration over the deferential coverage accorded Barack Obama and the array of liberals on the “Fair and Balanced” network.

SRAZ had earlier exposed the liberal line-up of paid contributors and often bizarre skew inFox News: “Fair and Balanced” credibility tanksAmnesty is prevailing view, Fox silences dissent.”

McCain & the “dossier”: It’s worse than we thought

March 16, 2019

 

Jeff Dunetz, writing for The Lid, headlines his report, “BREAKING: McCain And Aide Worked With Steele To Spread Dossier All Around DC.”

As our longtime readers are aware, from time to time SRAZ provides what has turned out to be a much read favorite — titled, “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.”

Today, we provide the back story to the sordid hoax intended to bring down the candidacy of Donald Trump, and most assuredly keep him out of the White House.

The vengeful and jealous John McCain was integral to passing on the fraud created by political opponents of Trump during his presidential campaign, alleging that the Russians had compromising information on the candidate. It was known at the time that McCain personally hand-carried the sleaze-laden documents to then-FBI Director James Comey in 2016. 

In his own inimitable and vulgar style, he acknowledged in 2017, “I did what duty demanded I do,” in passing on the documents. “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell.”

Yet as the salacious report exploded and dominated the news, McCain’s involvement mysteriously faded into the smutty haze.

The only way to deliver this potent news and fully reveal its unscrupulous purveyor is via the actual report. For a peek into the depraved mind of Arizona’s former senior senator, we urge you to read:McCain And Aide Worked With Steele To Spread Dossier All Around DC.”

The enemy within: Sen. RINOs join Dems to restrict Trump & Update

March 15, 2019

Republicrat senators, in a shameful display, voted with Democrats Thursday to block President Trump’s declaration of an emergency at the southern border.

The president declared the emergency after being blocked by congressional Democrats in his efforts to secure our southern border and halt the steady stream of illegal invaders, crime, drugs and human trafficking. Many traveling with children fraudulently claim to be family units to enhance their changes of being granted asylum.

Businessman Donald Trump —- based on his stated promise to build a border wall, rose like cream to the top of his sixteen bottlenecked opponents in 2016. Most of them have since vanished from the political consciousness. He then demolished problem-plagued Hillary Clinton in the General Election.

Now, instead of coalescing behind the man who resuscitated the Republican Party, spineless Republicans are expressing concern that by invoking the National Emergencies Act, the President is exceeding his authority. This is preposterous on it’s face.  

Although the left is going ballistic over President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to secure our southern border in response to congress’ failure to act, the ability to do so is not a new construct emanating from the Trump White House.

The National Emergencies Act was enacted by Congress in 1976, when it was signed into law by President Gerald Ford. It has no specific definition of what is considered an emergency, but has historically been invoked during unusual threats to the nation. There have been 58 national emergencies declared since the act‘s inception. Thirty-one of them remain in effect today.

In 1979, Pres. Jimmy Carter initially put the act to use to declare a national emergency freezing all Iranian government assets in the U.S. in response to the Iran hostage crisis. His national emergency is still in place and has been renewed annually by successive presidents, as required by law.

Pres. George W. Bush declared national emergency acts following the September 11, 2001 attacks. In all, he declared 13. As president, Barack Obama declared national emergencies on 12 foreign relations issues that have also been renewed.

Yet in the House last month, a dirty dozen plus one Republicrats voted in unison with the united Dems 245-182 to pass a resolution rejecting President Trump’s declaration. Thursday’s 59-41 roll call vote on H.J. Res. 46 in the Senate will send it to Trump’s desk. President Trump has indicated he will veto it.

Contemptible Senate Republicans who appallingly voted with Democrats are Lamar Alexander (TN), Roy Blunt (MO), Susan Collins (ME), Mike Lee (UT), Jerry Moran (KS), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Rand Paul (KY), Rob Portman (OH), Mitt Romney (UT), Marco Rubio (FL), Pat Toomey (PA), and Roger Wicker (MS). Arizona Sen. Martha McSally supported the president.

Regardless of what Republicrats and Democrats assert, President Trump absolutely has the authority to declare a national emergency on the border. He has that authority because Congress explicitly gave the power to the executive branch in 1976.

President Trump has just signed the first veto of his presidency:

 


9th Circus Court OKs invaders rights to sue DHS

March 8, 2019

Judges — all Bill Clinton appointees — assert illegal alien’s constitutional rights have been violated

Vijayakumar Thuraissigiam is a native and citizen of Sri Lanka and a Tamil, an ethnic minority group in Sri Lanka. After illegally crossing into the United States, he was arrested 25 yards north of the Mexican border, and placed in expedited removal proceedings. He was referred for a credible fear interview after he indicated a fear of persecution in Sri Lanka. An asylum officer determined that Thuraissigiam had not established a credible fear of persecution. A supervisor approved the decision, and an immigration judge affirmed the negative credible fear finding in a check-box decision and returned the case to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for Thuraissigiam’s removal.

Then Thuraissigiam, who presumably neither speaks English nor possesses a law degree, filed a habeas petition in federal district court, arguing that his expedited removal order violated his statutory, regulatory, and constitutional rights.

Imagine that! Invaders have constitutional rights to invade our sovereign United States of America. How many American citizens would be knowledgeable enough to file a habeas petition in federal court?

Read the bizarre opinion HERE.

The case was appealed from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. The presiding District Judge Anthony J. Battaglia (age 70) is an Obama appointee.

Ninth Circuit Judges A. Wallace Tashima (age 84), M. Margaret McKeown (age 67) and Richard A. Paez, (age 71) were all Bill Clinton appointees.

Tashima, who wrote the opinion, was previously appointed in 1980 to the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California by Jimmy Carter.

These leftist judges who put illegals above American citizens present clear and convincing evidence why President Donald Trump’s court appointments are so significant.  His impact on the U.S. Supreme Court has been spectacular. It is also why the Democrats are chomping at the bit to impeach him.


Democrats mainstream anti-Semitism & Update

March 7, 2019

The Holocaust, a shameful blight in modern history was a genocide in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically slaughtered six million European Jews — two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe —between 1933 and 1945. Adolf Hitler’s aim was total annihilation, facilitated by concentration camps equipped with showers that spewed deadly gas, ovens for humans and mass graves. After the allies liberated the skeletal, but still living victims, the rallying cry became, “Never Again!”

Who would imagine that anti-Semitism would find a home in the U.S. Congress in 2019 — a mere eight decades later?

Repeated vicious comments — widely criticized as anti-Semitic — questioning the patriotism of Jewish Americans, saying they “pledge allegiance to a foreign country,” referring to Israel, have been made by U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), a Somali immigrant and radical Islamic activist. Women’s March co-chair Linda Sarsour came to Omar’s defense. Sarsour has notoriously called for a “jihad” against President Trump and urged Muslims not to assimilate in America.

Sarsour, an associate of hate-monger Louis Farrakhan who called Jews “termites,” “Satanic” and worse, blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for pushing an anti-Semitism resolution, calling her a “typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men.” In the end, Democrat House leadership put forth a resolution that was gutted of its original intent. Pelosi’s resolution was first watered down to include the trendiest grievance groups of the moment.

In this video, Sarsour, surrounded by henchmen, refuses to answer whether Israel has a right to exist.

Radical Bronx Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the out-of-control new face of Socialism in the U.S. Congress supports Omar, who has called for a full-fledged boycott of Israel.

Omar made the controversial remarks while appearing alongside U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), another freshman congresswoman accused of making similar comments in recent weeks. She recently accused the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) of bribing Republican lawmakers into supporting Israel in exchange for payoffs. The fact that AIPAC does not make financial contributions to political candidates or sitting lawmakers doesn’t faze Tlaib. In 2012, Omar tweeted that Israel had “hypnotized the world” and committed “evil doings,” yet she was still elected in 2016. Omar and Tlaib are the first Muslim women elected to congress. Talib is a strident voice calling for the impeachment of President Trump.

Despite the fact that President Trump has fulfilled the promise of moving the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, a promise made and quickly forgotten by other presidents,  a preponderance of Jewish voters remain irrationally bonded to the Democrat Party.

Barack Obama treated Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu with contempt, but still he carried 78% of the Jewish vote in 2008. Exit polls reflect Hillary’s odd appeal. Donald Trump, the father of a Jewish convert daughter and grandfather of three Jewish grandchildren, mysteriously only convinced 24% of Jewish voters. More than 75 percent voted for Democrats in the 2018 midterms.

It’s worth remembering the shameful display at the 2012 Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, when the delegates booed the inclusion of the word “God” in the language of their Party Platform and jeered the idea of moving the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem.

Here’s the SRAZ memory jogger — complete with the following shocking video.

 

The House Resolution  — read it HERE —- originally conceived to repudiate anti-Semitism, and specifically aimed at reprimanding Rep. Ilhan Omar, has been expanded to condemn Islamaphobia, white supremacy, anti-Catholicism, and racial profiling by law enforcement. Omar’s name is not mentioned. However, she did assist in writing what was supposed to be a rebuke of her overt bigotry.

Consider this capitulation the death knell for Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s rein. 


Law school grads failing bar exams under scrutiny

March 5, 2019

Loony Left insultingly claims diversity considerations trump academic achievement

The fact that too many law school graduates are failing to pass the bar exam on the first test has caused the American Bar Association to consider a proposal requiring the schools to have a 75 percent rate of passage within the first two years of graduation, rather than the current five-year time frame. It has also increased the standards for accreditation of law schools. Arizona’s problem-plagued Summit Law School will cease operation after the current class graduates in 2020.

The proposals are sensible, given the fact that lawyers can have clients whose future hangs in the balance depending on the outcome of a trial. Putting it another way, how many people would choose a surgeon who had difficulty passing the medical boards?

Before applying for a medical license, there is a three-step test called the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE), the board exam that must be passed in order to practice medicine. This test is unusual for two reasons. First, students take each part at different stages of their medical education. Second, unlike many standardized tests, the USMLE actually assesses mastery of the material, not how well one takes a test.

Patients and legal clients have every right to expect their doctor or lawyer knows what they’re doing.

But liberalism has now invaded the examination bastion, taking precedence over rationality. This stand-alone, bold-faced paragraph in the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper tells what radio commentator Paul Harvey, used to call “the rest of the story”:

“Critics worry struggling schools will respond by requiring higher scores on the law-school entrance exam. This would hurt diversity in law schools and the legal profession, critics say, because minority and economically disadvantaged students historically … scored lower on the Law School Admissions Test.”

When they require legal services, count on the fact that those “critics” will seek the best lawyer they can find — regardless of ethnicity. Insultingly demeaning a trained professional as being unable to cut the legal mustard due to their “diversity” component, exposes the not-so-subtle bigotry of low expectations routinely engaged in by the radical left. Hypocritically giving lip service to the fraudulent, separatist concept of diversity should no longer be tolerated.  Regardless of manufactured protestations to the contrary, rational Americans know our strength is derived from unity and ability comes in all colors and from all economic backgrounds.


Blowback as Fla. Republicrat trolls for leftist votes

March 4, 2019

As the barbaric practice of infanticide — aborting a viable pre-born human baby up until the moment of birth —-rears its fiendish head in more states, it shouldn’t surprise that the grotesque has now morphed into full-blown lunacy.

Witness this maniacal turn of phrase, repetitively and shamelessly uttered by none other than a Republican — obviously seeking to expand his voter base. Florida House Speaker Jose Oliva has coined a new term to describe a pregnant mother: “Host Body.”

During a televised interview about a pro-life bill in the Florida House of Representatives, Oliva actually referred to pregnant women as “host bodies” five times during the interview.

The overwhelming negative response was swift, causing Oliva to retract his bizarre language with this apology (video):

 “In a recent interview where the very controversial topic of abortion was raised I used the term ‘host’ to describe a pregnant woman. It was an attempt to use terminology found in medical ethics writings with the purpose of keeping the discussion dispassionate. The reaction undoubtedly shows it had the exact opposite effect. I apologize for having caused offense; my aim was the contrary. This is and will continue to be our societies [sic] greatest challenge. I strongly believe both mother and child have rights and the extent and balance of those rights remain in question.”

Reread that last mind-boggling sentence.

Interestingly, the outrage was led by Florida legislative Democrats and the Florida Democrat Party Chairwoman. 

Would they have protested if a Democrat had uttered the same words?  Chances are slim to none.

The single priceless highlight of this contortionist language was Wikipedia’s coverage of Florida Speaker Joe Oliva. It referred to his own mother and wife as “host mother” and “host wife.” Showing a decided lack of spine, the descriptive language has been removed. Oliva’s wife Jeanne has been a “host” three times!

U.S. Senate Bill 311 titled, “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” can be read here. Fox News reports Democrats, including all of the Senate’s 2020 presidential hopefuls, blocked the measure.
