“Women” erased by newly woke leftists

July 20, 2022

During the confirmation hearing following her nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court by Joe Biden, Ketanji Brown Jackson infamously told Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) that she was unable to define the word “woman.” Americans watched the exchange in disbelief:

“Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman?’” Sen. Blackburn asked. Jackson replied, “Can I provide a definition? No, I can’t.”

“You can’t?” Blackburn asked incredulously. “Not in this context, I’m not a biologist,” the nominee responded.

That foolish vantage point, with roots in the recently “enlightened” democrat party has gone mainstream. Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary has now jumped onboard the newly politically correct, absurdity train. The dictionary definition of “female” has been changed to appease “trans” activists. Once defined as “adult human female,” the term now has a lengthy definition, including “having a gender identity that is the opposite of male.” Gender identity, or that “vibe,” or “internal feeling” of being a woman has now linguistically and by definition been intertwined with biological sex. Objecting to the change is now a chargeable offense.

Congress under the Biden administration has altered official documents to eliminate the word “mother” and replace it with “birthing parent” bizarrely eliminating women from their biological sex and their unique role in conceiving, carrying a pregnancy to term and giving birth.

On Dec. 30, 2010, SRAZ posted, “Orwell‘s 1984: Alive and well with journalistic word police,” which included a relevant news video, describing the then newly-approved language authorized by the Diversity Committee of the Society of Professional Journalists.

To say, “nothing has changed,” would be the height of foolishness. It has only worsened in the intervening years.


AZ Republic obscures election facts to create false message

July 19, 2022

Arizona’s local newspaper is on the skids, as are others nationwide. Associated Press admitted that fact recently. Still nothing dissuades the Hillary-endorsing local disseminator of leftwingism from getting its message out…even when patently false.

Today’s edition is illustrative of the fakery fitting the agenda taking precedence over fact.  Headlined above-the-fold is this gem: “Female first time candidates still face challenges.” Reporter Tara Kavaler relies on the old “glass ceiling” metaphor in an effort to give substance to her false narrative.

She’s obviously never heard of energetic and respected democrat Polly Rosenbaum who was Arizona’s longest-serving state legislator, representing Gila County in the House of Representatives for 46 years, defeated in an anti-incumbency thrust at age 95. 

Arizona also has the distinction of electing what became known as the “Fab Five,” all women elected to the state’s highest offices in 1998: Jane Dee Hull was elected governor, Betsey Bayless was elected Secretary Of State, Janet Napolitano was elected Attorney General, Carol Springer was elected state Treasurer, and Lisa Graham-Keegan was elected Superintendent of Public Instruction. All were Republicans except for Napolitano. They remain the greatest number of women to serve in any state’s highest elected offices simultaneously. Republican Kimberly Yee, a former state senator, is currently Arizona’s state treasurer, keeping Arizona’s economy solvent during the pandemic pandemonium and the faltering Biden administration, with the worst inflation many of us have ever endured. 

Lorna Lockwood, born pre-statehood in 1903, became a lawyer, Superior Court judge and the first female justice on the Arizona Supreme Court, holding that distinction nationally. President Ronald Reagan nominated Arizonan Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman to serve as a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Arizona’s legislature has had women serving in the state House and Senate since 1914, two years after statehood. Tara Kavaler, an Arizona transplant, needs to take a remedial course in Arizona history. Writing sans information makes everything else she writes worthy of suspicion.


Cornell University obscures American history

July 3, 2022

Someone complained, and it was gone:” Cornell biology professor Randy Wayne

Ivy League universities have always had a certain panache that elevated them over other colleges and state universities. Cornell University has recently removed itself from that lofty pedestal.

Jennifer Kabbany, editor of the College Fix, reports “Cornell library removes Gettysburg Address, Lincoln bust.”

As Americans prepare to celebrate Independence Day — commemorating the Declaration of Independence from British rule following the Revolutionary War, and ratified by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776 — this article is a must read.  It reveals how our history has transmogrified into nothing more than a soiled past, rife with transgressions and weaklings rather than Founding heroes.

American history is given short shrift in recent years. Ask a teen or college student a few pertinent questions and you’ll quickly learn that our public school system has failed in educating, which is the obligation it is paid to fulfill. Indoctrination is the name of the game as evidenced by this shocking information from Open Secrets…which follows the money in politics.

Then read this fact-filled Fox News report by Tyler Olson, “Biden received more money from teachers unions than any other candidate in 2020.”

Socialist Bernie Sanders, older than most of their grandfathers, won the 18-to-24-year-old primary vote by significant margins in 2020.Those who know American history realize the United States and the Allied Forces fought and won World War II against socialistic lies and gruesome cruelties. Young voters, disastrously, have no such knowledge. They have been dumbed down to the point that they voted for Biden.


Biden rightly accused of having blood on his hands

June 28, 2022

Failure to secure southern border encourages risky actions

The horrific cost in terms of lives lost was all too apparent Monday after Texas authorities located an 18-wheeler with at least 100 illegal aliens abandoned in San Antonio, including at least 46 individuals who were dead of heat related causes, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott blamed President Joe Biden and his immigration policies.

In this tweet, Abbott, a Republican who is running for reelection, said Monday evening’s gruesome discovery rests squarely on Biden. “At Least 42 People Found Dead Inside Truck Carrying Migrants In Texas. These deaths are on Biden,” Abbott said, Officials later raised the death toll to at least 46. “They are a result of his deadly open border policies. They show the deadly consequences of his refusal to enforce the law.”

As of Tuesday morning the death toll rose to 50, including seven Guatemalan citizens and two Honduran citizens.

Recently, Republican National Committee spokesperson Nicole Morales accused democrat gubernatorial challenger O’Rourke of showing that he’s out-of-touch with Texans. Disregarding his preferred Hispanic sounding nickname “Beto,” she emphatically declared, “Robert Francis O’Rourke is once again proving himself to be out-of-touch with Texans. Biden’s border crisis is almost as ‘great’ as Beto’s failed presidential run,” Morales stated.

A new record was set for the number of illegal alien encounters at the southern border, reaching 235,000 in April. Biden, Pelosi and Schumer view the illegals — the ones who survive — as grateful new democrats.


AZ Republic’s long awaited apology misses the mark

June 27, 2022

Alluding to cramps more offensive than daily assault of leftwing dishonesty and promoting abortions

The Arizona Republic is a failing relic from another time. It has fallen on hard times and few subscribers remain, due not only to its relentless leftwing bias, but to the fact that day-old news thrown on a driveway has been replaced by instant news, as close as your pocket and providing a wide variety of perspectives rather than the constant drone of a far-left whine. It has even curtailed deliveries to paid subscribers in an effort to keep itself afloat.

Yet Sunday’s edition momentarily provided some hope that the editorial board that veers so far left it is impossible to correct its stance, had seen the light. Tucked away on page 4A was this all caps headlined, NOTE TO READERS:

“The Dilbert cartoon in today’s newspaper contains material that could be offensive to many readers. Unfortunately, our comics section was pre-printed, and we were not able to replace it with another comic strip.  We apologize to readers who find offense.”

For this Dilbert cartoon which mentions “cramps” to be considered offensive, but the daily barrage of leftist insults and month-long same-sex “pride” events rate a pass, exemplifies the insanity that drives the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-despising, out-of-touch with reality, garbage can liner.

Monday’s edition includes a multi-page “report” peddling the lie that abortion has been overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court. In fact, the Supreme Court merely turned the decision back to the individual state legislatures. Reporter Stephanie Innes actually used the words, “Pregnant person’s rights.” Attributing pregnancy to something only women experience is a bridge too far for radicals. And granting “personhood” status to pre-born human infants rates as abhorrent.


Rasmussen: Staggering majority of Americans disapprove of Biden

June 18, 2022

VP Kamala Harris ditches border to concentrate on cyber bullying

Rasmussen rated high for factual reporting, reveals only 23 percent of likely U.S. voters believe the country is heading in the right direction. This number remained unchanged from the previous week, with Biden showing no improvement, as dissatisfaction with his abysmal programs, inability to rein in backbreaking inflation and lack of leadership grows. Fifty-seven percent (57%) of respondents disapprove of Joe Biden.

Real Clear Politics, a polling aggregator has even more dismal news for Biden. On the Economy, 61.5 % disapprove of the job he’s doing. On the Direction of the County, Biden rates even worse, with 68.6% stating he’s on the wrong track.

And appalling VP Kamala Harris?  Feeble Biden named her the border czar putting her in charge of the crisis at our southern border. But the invasion of our county is of no interest to her. Instead, this past week she launched a Cyber Bullying Board, stating, “This affects all of us if it affects any one of us.” She could have used those same words to describe the invasion of our nation.

Breitbart News headlined its fact-filled report, Analysis: 1.1 Million More Illegal Aliens in U.S. Since Biden Took Office.”  We urge our readers to take time to acquaint themselves with the facts that are of no interest to either Biden or Harris, but will irretrievably alter the nation we are leaving to our future generations.


Uneducated students protest US Constitution’s 2nd Amendment

June 12, 2022

In a coordinated effort, anti-gun rallies were reportedly held in hundreds of U.S. cities across the nation Saturday. Many were student-led.

The Second Amendment (read the brief highlighted reference to the impact of Heller decision) to our Constitution took a back seat to emotion, as the rallying cry of the group known as “March for Our Lives,“ made restricting gun ownership the focus of their attention.

From its website, under the heading, Our Demands for the Biden-Harris Administration, is this absurdity carrying the price tag of “at least $1 billion in funding”:

“Much like the COVID-19 pandemic, and the HIV pandemic before it, the gun violence epidemic requires a unified, national plan with a public health lens. President Biden must appoint a Director of Gun Violence Prevention and dedicate at least $1 billion in funding to combat gun violence, rebuilding our research and data collection infrastructure while supporting community-based violence intervention programming. March for Our Lives is urging the Biden-Harris Administration to lead the federal response by meeting the following demands…listed under the link in this paragraph.”

The New York Post provides insights into the abysmal lack of American history taught in our public schools as teachers admit they “teach to the test.” What would motive students’ desire to protect our unique Constitutional-based nation, when they are ignorant of what separates us from Socialist and Communist dictatorships?

It is the public school system run by unionist teachersnot the Second Amendment — that desperately needs to be reevaluated.

Dying AZ Republic hastens its own demise with Elvia Diaz promotion, & Update

May 23, 2022

In another trendy “first” promotion, the failing local newspaper, has decided the reliable way to stay relevant in a world that has abandoned hard copy newspapers peddling left-wing, day-old news, is to insult their remaining readership.

According to an announcement, Elvia Diaz is now heralded the “first Latina” to serve as editorial page editor since the newspaper was founded 132 years ago. Omitted is the fact that she came here as an illegal alien who used our system to leave the fields where her family picked crops to obtain a taxpayer subsidized college education which enabled her to vent her anti-Republican spew. She cut her teeth at the Republic’s Spanish language publication, La Voz.

The announcement boasts, “As director, Diaz will edit The Republic’s Viewpoints section, opinion columnists and guest writers, set the board’s agenda and, working with the executive editor and the board, shape The Republic’s institutional voice.” She is foolishly praised for “expanding outreach to underserved communities,” none of whom read an overpriced, English language newspaper.

Bounced from that position to make room for this radical replacement is Phil Boas, who used his post to denigrate his own father-in-law, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was running for reelection after serving the people of Maricopa County for an unprecedented 6-four year terms. Thanks to Boas’ efforts a George Soros-financed democrat replacement now leads the Sheriff’s office* in the fourth-most populous county in the United States — besides being a border state.

Don’t mistake Diaz for a benign entity. She is an equal opportunity venom spewer, even reaching down into her bag of hatred to blast venomous anti-Semitism in a vile, contrived, and unrelated, border comparison.

And Phil Boas? In a face-saving gesture, he’s going to become a “columnist,“ to be published on the pages on which he served as chief editor for two decades, the last 10 as editorial director. Leftwing E.J. Montini is past retirement age and Boas is a family man with a mortgage to pay.

* As reported in Law Enforcement Today.

UPDATE:

Job security reigns supreme. Boas’ first column following his demotion, is dutifully anti-Trump. He’s undergone a political epiphany.


Radical leftist L.A. District Attorney George Gascon facing recall

May 9, 2022

Arizonans will not soon forget notorious George Gascon, the Cuban-born, former Mesa Police Chief with a token law degree, who advocated limp enforcement policies for illegals. In 2009, he left Mesa for San Francisco where he was appointed police chief.

Within less than a year-and-a half, then-Mayor Gavin Newsom selected Gascon as the interim District Attorney when Kamala Harris — yes, that one — was elected Attorney General. Despite never trying a case, let alone prosecuting any, Gascon’s statement on his lack of qualification to be the District Attorney was telling. He said, “Running a D.A.’s office is not the same as prosecuting cases on the floor. They’re different skill sets. I believe I have the organizational skills, and I have an understanding of the criminal justice system not only today, but where we need to be in the future.”

Gascon’s vision of the future is lowering the standards for prosecution — allowing more criminals to go free — and giving free rein to illegal aliens entering the United States.

Finally, Californians have had their fill of laxity as brazen smash-and-grab thefts routinely occur everywhere from upscale department and jewelry stores to neighborhood Walgreen’s, causing many of the pharmacies to close. The Police Tribune reports homicide rates have skyrocketed 94 percent In Los Angeles County.

Breitbart News’ Joel B. Pollak, Senior Editor-at-Large, reports the campaign to Recall Soros-backed George Gascon has 400,000 Signatures, more than two-thirds the number necessary, That fact provides hope that even Californians have had their fill of the man known as “Gascan” while in Arizona.

Seeing Red AZ has frequently written exposed him. This is a sampling:

June 25, 2009: Sanctuary City San Francisco: A perfect fit for George Gascon

Oct. 11, 2020: Amiable bedfellows: Kamala Harris, George Gascon…George Soros

Dec. 9, 2020:  LA D.A. George Gascon honed radical leftist career in Mesa, AZ

Dec 31, 2020: L.A. County prosecutors rebel against DA George Gascon

June 5,. 2021: L.A. D.A. George Gascon protects criminals, disregards law abiding citizens

Nov.13, 2021: LA DA George Gascon releases murderer after only 6 yrs. of 50 yr. sentence

Dec.11, 2018: Fmr Mesa Police Chief George Gascon: Arrogance personified

To qualify for the ballot, a total of 566,857 signatures, or 10 percent of total Los Angeles County registered voters, must be submitted to the LA County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s Office by July 6.

On February 22, 2022, the LA Association of Deputy District Attorneys took a vote on whether to support the recall. A total of 83.3% of the prosecutors voted, and 97.9% of them supported the recall.
