KTAR broadcasts in Spanish: “The voice for a better AZ”

September 16, 2015

File this under “We couldn’t make this stuff up”

The radio trade paper NTS Media Online runs a riveting piece under the heading “Talk and Media News Notes.” The final item features Phoenix radio station KTAR doing a show Thursday night called “Hispanic in Arizona.” If you’re an English-speaking American, this is not the place for you, since the show will be entirely “en Espanol!”

This Thursday evening (9/17) KTAR-FM/Phoenix will host Hispanic In Arizona, a first of its kind, two-hour community roundtable discussion, with one hour to be broadcast exclusively in Spanish. Commenting on the upcoming special program, Bonneville/Phoenix VP Content and Operations Ryan Hatch said, “Our goal at KTAR News is to be the voice for a better Arizona and to connect with our community in a meaningful way. We’re very proud to be the first English-speaking radio station in Arizona history to host a show in Spanish.”

Some of our astute readers may remember an April Fool’s joke in 2009 when then local talk show host JD Hayworth ran an announcement from “The Commission” in “Washington, DC” stipulating that going forward KFYI would be REQUIRED to broadcast in Spanish for two hours each night. The spoof announcement ran in Spanish and English, and caused quite a commotion, though it was, of course, a joke.

Now, KTAR is actually doing it — and in the process, looks to replace the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) on the “Politically Correct Pander Meter.”

Fox only network to link police murders to vile chant

September 2, 2015

“Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon”

NewsBusters reports on the startling lack of media coverage of police and sheriff’s deputies who are increasingly targeted by cold-blooded killers goaded by the blatantly hypocritical Black Lives Matter movement.

Friday night we were met with news of the unprovoked, execution style ambush of Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth in Texas.  Goforth, 47, the married father of two young children, ages 5 and 12, was shot 15 times as he filled the gas tank of his patrol car. He was murdered by Shannon Miles, 30, a black male.

“We’ve heard black lives matter — all lives matter,” the visibly angry Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman told reporters. “Well, cops’ lives matter, too.”

ABC, NBC and CBS dutifully reported the tragedy during their weekend news broadcasts, while noting the increase of police officer deaths in 2015. Missing from the accounts are the increasing death threats against uniformed officers, which  have become a mainstay at Black Lives Matter rallies, often preceding or following acts of violence against police.

Such was the case on Saturday afternoon when Black Lives Matter activists gathered at Minnesota’s State Fair. As they marched, they referred to police as “pigs” and called for them to “fry” while they were, ironically, protected by police escorts.

This certainly isn’t the first time activists have called for violence against law enforcement officers and had their wish fulfilled. Last December, two NYPD officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, were sitting in their police unit when they were gunned down. The killer posted on Instagram the same vicious chant, “I’m putting pigs in a blanket,” just before he killed the two officers.

On Tuesday morning Illinois police officer Lt. Joe Gliniewicz was murdered. Police are conducting an intensive search for three suspects. Gliniewicz, a married father of four had been an officer for more than 30 years.

In Louisiana, State Trooper Steven Vincent, 44, was gunned down following a traffic stop last week. He was married and the father of a nine-year-old son.

Instead of reporting on the chants of violence at these rallies, the networks instead reported on the less offensive “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” slogan — knowing this mantra was based on a falsehood. Still the network news broadcasts continued to include it in reports without comment or correction, an astounding 156 times in less than a year.

Mount McKinley gets Squaw Peaked

September 1, 2015

Obama purges American history to conform to political correctness

Although it’s being configured as restoring the original native Alaskan name, Obama’s politically motivated name change of Mount McKinley to Denali has taken a questionable route all too familiar to Arizonans.

As the story goes, North America’s tallest mountain got its officially recognized name in 1896, when a prospector, William Dickey, was exploring in central Alaska. When he heard the news that William McKinley, a Republican and Spanish-American war hero, had received his party’s presidential nomination, Dickey named the mountain in his honor. The name was formally recognized in 1917. It should be noted that numerous native peoples of the area had their own names for the massive peak.

In unilaterally switching the name, Obama is effectively thumbing his nose at McKinley, the 25th president, who was born in Ohio and assassinated early in his second term. Ohioans have long pointed with pride at the towering Alaskan mountain named for their native son. Ohio’s congressional delegation, both Republicans and Democrats, have reacted angrily, calling Obama’s actions “deeply disappointing” as well as an “insulting political stunt.“ 

Squaw Peak, a popular hiking site and focal point of central Phoenix, received similar treatment in 2003, when New York-born Democrat Gov. Janet Napolitano determined the word “Squaw” was derogatory.  Using ham-handed tactics not previously seen, she ramrodded  through the name change to Piestewa Peak, honoring Army Pfc. Lori Piestewa — a Hopi tribal member killed in the Iraq War. Napolitano waived the five-year waiting period required for posthumous naming to effect the change and her henchman bullied the chairman of the state geographic names board.

Napolitano later abandoned the governorship to join the Obama regime as the ineffectual chieftain of Homeland Security, noted for her blasé retort when frustrated Arizonans pleaded for actual border security: “Show me a 50-foot fence, and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder.”

Political correctness is a hallmark of the left. Common sense?  Not so much.

Adm. Lyons: U.S. transformation in full swing since 2008

August 31, 2015

Muslim Brotherhood has penetrated all U.S. National Security Agencies

In a no-holds-barred speech, retired Four Star Admiral James “Ace” Lyons begins his presentation to the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. earlier this year, by declaring Barack Obama has implemented the unilateral disarmament of our military. He unequivocally states that under Obama’s guidance, all of our national security agencies have been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Obama is obviously making good on his promise to fundamentally transform the United States of America.  Few of us will forget the words uttered by presidential candidate Barack Obama days preceding the 2008 election. The foolish crowds, taught moral equivalency rather than American exceptionalism, by liberal unionist teachers, cheered as he vowed, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

Watch Adm. Lyon’s brief presentation, listen to his warning and forward it to your contacts. Regardless of your stance on the 2016 presidential candidates, this information is something we all can agree is critical for our nation’s survival. It’s imperative we unite behind someone who puts America first.

Political correctness skews rational thought

August 27, 2015

PC absurdities from Hollyweird, to sports and politics

Hopping aboard the leftwing politically correct train a few decades late, actress Julianne Moore has launched an online petition to change the name of the high school she attended in Falls Church, Virginia in the mid-1970’s. Moore now claims the school,  J.E.B. Stuart High, named for a Confederate general and Virginia native who was killed in battle during the Civil War, is a symbol of racism.

“No one should have to apologize for the name of the public high school you attended and the history of racism it represents,  as so many alumni of Stuart have felt the need to do our whole lives,” says Moore. a committed liberal and atheist. She suddenly wants the school renamed for Thurgood Marshall, who represented the NAACP in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education case before becoming a Supreme Court justice.

Her personal background is interesting. Moore, 54, was born into privilege in North Carolina.  Her father was an Army Colonel and a military judge. Her Scottish-born mother, an American educated psychologist, legally immigrated to the U.S. as a child in 1950.  In 2011, Moore chose an odd way to “honor” her newly deceased mother.  The actress, who has amassed great wealth from American movie goers,  renounced her American citizenship.

On Tuesday, ESPN suspended Curt Schilling, after the former Arizona Diamondbacks All-Star pitcher and current  baseball analyst for the network, posted a message on Twitter that drew a comparison between extremist Muslims and Nazis. The tweet which he quickly deleted contained a picture of Hitler and stated, “It’s said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?” Schilling added: “The math is staggering when you get to true #’s.”

It turns out comparisons of mass murderers is politically incorrect. Who knew?

“Curt’s tweet was completely unacceptable, and in no way represents our company’s perspective,” said ESPN in a statement. “We made that point very strongly to Curt and have removed him from his current Little League assignment pending further consideration.” Schilling also serves as an analyst for the network’s Sunday Night Baseball.

Schilling rushed to apologize: “I understand and accept my suspension. 100% my fault. Bad choices have bad consequences and this was a bad decision in every way on my part.”

Apparently mass beheadings — some committed by young boys encouraged by their terrorist fathers, child rapes and burning caged men alive for the cameras works for ESPN.

Democrat presidential aspirant Martin O’Malley actually apologized for saying “Black lives matter,” and adding, “white lives matter, all lives matter.” The former Maryland governor appeared with fellow candidate, self-described Democratic Socialist  Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT), and were shouted off the stage by radicals at the July Netroots Nation conference in Phoenix, for having the temerity to include all lives as having relevance. The extremists in the Black Lives Matter movement do not tolerate expanding the lives that matter beyond their own.

These  politically correct contrivances are reminiscent of Winston Smith, the protagonist in George Orwell’s best seller “1984.” Smith was employed as a clerk in the government’s Ministry of Truth Records Department. His job was to rewrite historical documents to align with the constantly changing current political deception. Newspeak, a reduced language became the tool to limit free thought and concepts posing a threat to the totalitarian regime.  Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct was classified as “thought crime,” “crime think,” or “doublethink.”

The mind control and group think described in the fictional “1984” is in full bloom in 2015.

Ending birthright citizenship = end to anchor babies

August 20, 2015

The Washington Examiner reports Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s call to end birthright citizenship in the United States “could revive a similar proposal in Congress that has never gained traction despite past support from top leaders.” The article cites Democrat Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, (watch him in linked video) and House Speaker John Boehner, (R-OH), who is all over the map on any given subject on any given day. We can count on them for nothing.

Birthright Citizenship is the automatic granting of citizenship to children born to non-citizens within a nation’s borders or territories. The United States and Canada are now the only developed nations in the world to still offer Birthright Citizenship to tourists and illegal aliens. Those children are known as anchor babies since the birth of one on American soil facilitates “chain migration” or the ability of that infant in diapers, usually supplied by your tax dollars, to act as the conduit to bring in the rest of the extended family. It is a preposterous misinterpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment, which rightly granted citizenship to American-born children of African-born slaves freed after the Civil War.

In recent years the practice has been repealed by the nations of Australia (2007), New Zealand (2005), Ireland (2005), France (1993), India (1987), Malta (1989), UK (1983), and Portugal (1981).

The list “Developed Nations” that disallow the practice can be seen  on NumbersUSA along with the list of “Other Nations” that join in refusing to accept the this surefire means of destroying the unifying heritage of a country. The NumbersUSA website also lists the 2016 presidential candidates who support and oppose ending birthright citizenship. Although the post was just updated there are missing candidates.

Seeing Red AZ has written about the issue and its many incarnations as far back as 2010 with the post Anchor babies and “birth tourism” making the news. and Birth tourism” alive and well in 2012.

Americans are increasingly being told what words they can use to describe the worsening situation. “Illegal alien” is an unkind description of those who thumb their noses at our laws while invading our sovereign nation. By 2011, the New York Times explained the term “anchor baby” has been redefined as a slur.

In 2013, we wrote the amnesty supporting Arizona Republic speaks illegalese, followed by Winston Smith: Alive and well at Associated Press, in which we reported that the AP Stylebook was ditching the term “illegal immigrant” as politically incorrect.

America is not yet the totalitarian regime described in George Orwell’s book, 1984. Redefining language is a calculated tool of the left. Don’t fall in line.

AZ Republic doggedly committed to its own demise

August 17, 2015

Newspaper recreates itself as sensational entertainment tabloid

The world is an increasingly dangerous place, made even more calamitous by Barack Obama’s commitment to a sinister deal allowing Iran to ramp up nuclear capabilities for its Jihadi bomb. The deal comes packaged with a $100 billion signing bonus that will advance Iran’s deadly terror campaign, imperiling the entire Middle East, America, Israel and Western nations. Iran make no concessions, not even returning American prisoners, as we roll over.

On Saturday, bowing to massive pressure including constituent calls and television ads aimed at him, Sen. Jeff Flake (AZ) finally announced he won’t be the Republican to sign onto his buddy Obama’s deal — allowing the irrational scheme to be called “bi-partisan.”  Christians United for Israel bought a full-page ad in Sunday’s edition directed to Jeff Flake. it was signed by countless pastors across Arizona.

Yet what does the Arizona Republic newspaper decide is noteworthy enough to feature in its Sunday edition? Three-quarters of the front page is taken up with a story and oversized photo on the newspaper’s new dining critic. This blather, that rightfully belongs in the entertainment section,  continues on two jump pages.

If it’s news you want, the state’s vacuous and decidedly leftwing, dual agenda newspaper, is not the place to find it.

The Valley and State section also lacks substantive news. It’s front page and two jump pages spotlight a 55-year old man with long pink hair who favors pink lip gloss — “transgendered” — in today’s trendy vernacular. There are two salon photos, one depicting a couple of attendants providing simultaneous manicure and pedicure services. It details the saga of the former husband and father of three, previously answering to the name Brian, now known as Briana. The article is titled “I just have to be Bree.”

Pass the cheddar and pass on the irrelevant and news-less newspaper.
