Truth is inconvenient, so why not lie…even on Presidents Day?

February 17, 2020

Since readership has fallen to the level of a cadaver’s blood pressure, the inconsequential, radically leftist local newspaper is willing to use any provocative means in its attempt to keep itself afloat. Emaciated columnist EJ Montini’s recent effort is a case in point. His column is titled, “Bloomberg is taking the heat, but Trump is the racist.”

Never mind that his premise is false or even that he knows it — having worked for the Hillary-endorsing, illegal alien invasion-supporting Arizona Republic since 1986, the concept of truth is too exotic to comprehend. Montini has been able to hang on through buyouts and wholesale firings of his co-workers because he is a willing sycophantic distorter and unconcealed liar, traits he has blatantly honed past retirement age.

Still the desperate, failing purveyor of falsehoods begs for readers with a giveaway. Outlandishly claiming:

“You can play a vital role in supporting local journalism that you and your community can trust. With a subscription, you can help our journalists hold those in power accountable,” by offering a “Presidents Day sale subscription — $1 for 3 months.”

A penny a paper is about what the far-left blather is worth. And those “journalists”?  They are mostly ASU Cronkite propagandized student interns, marinated in left-wing party line tripe working for a byline, lacking editors or an office.

This frantic deal comes from the shaky, homeless newspaper which recently acknowledged getting a whole lot factually incorrect, though its editorial policy and leftward skew didn’t make the embarrassingly long ‘Corrections and Clarifications’ list.


Suicidal, leftist newspapers die by their own hand

February 14, 2020

McClatchy news conglomerate files bankruptcy to shed costs of print and speed shift to digital

We’ve all heard of the term, “death by a thousand cuts,” which describes a series of miscalculations culminating in a slow and painful demise. The newspaper industry is stunningly illustrative of that idiom. Bonded to delivering a leftist perspective and delivering daily insults to readers, many have not only fallen victim to the digital age, but also to their own venomous spews aimed at President Trump.

TheLetter from Leadership,” signed by Chief Executive Officer Craig Forman informing that McClatchy newspaper publishing company has filed for bankruptcy begins with these ominous words:

On February 13, 2020, we announced that we are commencing a restructuring under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code to provide McClatchy with immediate protection while we pursue approval of our proposed restructuring plan and work to definitively address the Company’s funded debt, strengthen our balance sheet, and address our pension obligations moving forward.”

While this is obviously a sad milestone after 163 years of family control, McClatchy remains a strong operating company and committed to essential local news and information,” said Kevin McClatchy, chairman of the company that has carried his family name since the days of the California Gold Rush. “While we tried hard to avoid this step, there’s no question that the scale of our 75-year-old pension plan – with 10 pensioners for every single active employee – is a reflection of another economic era.” Read more here.

This dismal admission is accompanied by a YouTube video, titled,McClatchy Transformation,” in case its employees and debtors have difficulty grasping the words. A notice accompanying the video notes “comments are turned off.”

A separate Bloomberg Report foretells the coming death of newspapers. Charles Munger, a newspaper company executive as well as a Berkshire Hathaway Inc. vice chairman, said U.S. newspapers have no future.

“Technological change is destroying the daily newspapers in America,” Munger said Wednesday in Los Angeles at the annual meeting of Daily Journal Corp., the publishing company where the billionaire businessman is chairman. “The revenue goes away and the expenses remain and they’re all dying.”

Berkshire, the conglomerate controlled by Warren Buffett, announced last month that it would sell off its newspaper holdings.

Seeing Red AZ has frequently written about the death spiral in which the Hillary-endorsing, open borders promoting Arizona Republic newspaper has placed itself. Most recently the local Gannett publication made the news as an albatross with this Phoenix Business Journal headline,Analysis: Arizona Republic’s circulation decline among steepest for Gannett papers.” A success-based business model takes root in not routinely lobbing insult-laden spit wads at paying customers. This strategic concept is foreign to the failing newspaper that was originally known as the Arizona Republican, when it was founded in 1890. Today’s edition buries two pro-Trump articles on Page 6 of the USA Today insert. ($60M+ raised for Trump in January) and (Poll: 6 in 10 doing better, credit Trump).

Gannett has its own headaches as detailed in this Forbes Business report, Reasons Why Gannett Stock Has Yet To Find A Bottom.”


ASU: Home of anti-Republican thuggery

February 7, 2020

This disturbing video showing an unhinged student carrying a backpack on the Arizona State University campus threatening to “Slash Republican throats!” is not getting the widespread coverage it deserves.

Students for Trump at ASU were manning an on-campus table when the incident occurred.

The video was posted by Charlie Kirk, founder & president of Turning Point USA and chairman of Students for Trump, as well as the author of the soon-to-be released book, “The MAGA Doctrine.”

Campus Reform (video) reports that former 6-term Sheriff Joe Arpaio running to win back his job from a Soros-supported Democrat is not immune to threats on ASU’s campus. “Antifa” thugs disrupted a recent event with Sheriff Arpaio. It was alleged that one of the disrupters drew a knife.

ASU police are a rare commodity as threats are issued during peaceful assemblies.

Don’t look for ASU President Michael Crow to address these growing problems. He’s awfully busy these days…counting his money. These figures don’t factor in his most recent salary hike.


Trump Triumphs: Impeachment backfires on Dems, Romney

February 6, 2020

Spiteful Mitt Romney is the only senator in U.S. history to support convicting a president from his own party — voting to convict on abuse of power and acquit on obstruction of justice

The Democrats farcical impeachment of President Donald Trump has fallen on its own sword. A wild miscalculation, the scheme never resonated with American voters who understood that congress devoted its laser-like concentration on taking down a president whose election they abhorred, rather than conducting the business they were elected to do. Scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton’s 2016 massive loss was so unimaginable to the left, they were out for retribution, even if it meant ignoring the voters and attempting to deny them their choice again in 2020.

Democrats and their Republicrat cronies worship at the altar of their most beloved deity: the one they see in their mirrors.

Embittered Utah Sen. Mitt Romney was the only GOP senator voting to convict President Trump. He had nothing good to say about candidate Trump — calling him “a phony, a fraud…who’s playing the American public for suckers” and “If we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished.”

His irrational prognostications have been proven exceedingly wrong. Trump’s administration has overseen unparalleled successes. Yet who can forget that that after Trump’s election, Romney came begging for appointment as Secretary of State, a position he did not secure.

In voting to convict President Trump, Romney cloaked himself in religiosity, claiming, “I’m profoundly religious and swore an oath before God.”

Slickster Romney’s calling on faith is peculiar in light of his recent Twitter scandal. He was exposed asPierre Delecto,” on an anonymous burner account he used to disparage Trump and support comments made on his own official account.

Mitt Romney, an itinerant politician and nominal Republican, has the rare distinction of being the pro-abortion Governor of Massachusetts, a losing presidential candidate and now a Utah senator. “Romneycare, his insurance mandate in Massachusetts set the stage for Obamacare. His waffling on social issues showed him to be a coreless opportunist.

This was President Trump’s explosive tweet

 


Trump’s State of the Union speech: Patriots v. Petucrats

February 5, 2020

Petulance defines Democrats who have accomplished nothing on behalf of their constituents while focusing on the hoax impeachment

Watching President Donald Trump deliver his third State of the Union address to the nation Tuesday night, Americans would be hard pressed not to feel pride in his recitation of accomplishments and promises fulfilled on behalf of the people of the United States.

It was a splendid speech, delivered so brilliantly it caused applauding members of congress to stand and chant, “Four more years!” 

President Trump interspersed his speech by introducing numerous citizens — ranging from a young girl receiving a scholarship to bypass her failing school to 100-year-old Tuskegee airman Col. Charles McGee, the great-grandfather of the 13-year-old boy beside him who aspires to go to the Air Force Academy, and a reunited military family — as the president related their inspirational stories.

He awarded a clearly surprised Rush Limbaugh, seated beside First Lady Melania Trump, the Presidential Medal of Freedom one day after the conservative talk radio icon announced he was diagnosed with stage-four lung cancer. The medal, presented by Mrs. Trump, is the nation’s highest civilian honor. Limbaugh, clearly moved, wiped away tears.

Viewing the speech, given the evening before Wednesday’s impeachment vote, it was clear why President Trump’s approval ratings are soaring. Markets are reaching new highs, jobs are plentiful, incomes are increasing and unemployment is at historic lows.  But cranky Dems can’t handle the good news.  Petulant House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who appeared to be chewing the inside of her cheek, as she flipped through pages, reached a new low in civility. She and Vice President Mike Pence were seated directly behind the president on the dais. At the conclusion of his speech, she stood and in an obviously rehearsed dramatic fit, tore up her copy of his speech. (brief video.)

A notable exception was Arizona Democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, wearing a vivid purple dress, rather than joining her unified female Dems clad in suffragette white, symbolizing nothing but depicting their group think. Surprisingly, Sinema rose and applauded a key provision of President Trump’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, while the rest of her party sat in stony silence.

Earlier in the day, the much heralded Democrat Iowa caucus was a botched mess as the Dem tech geniuses couldn’t produce a timely result of which Socialist was leading, causing the Iowa party chair to refer to the debacle asunacceptable.” These are the people who want to run our country.


Dems impeachment double standard exposed

January 31, 2020

As the impeachment sham brandished by the Democrats against President Donald J. Trump nears its conclusion, it’s worth taking a short memory jog back through time to hear what the Democrats had to say during the Bill Clinton impeachment.  Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives on December 19, 1998 on grounds of perjury to a grand jury, suborning perjury and obstruction of justice as he lied about his ongoing romantic relationship with 22-year old White House intern Monica Lewinsky. President Clinton was 49 when it began.

 

President Donald Trump’s White House counsel Pat Cipollone showed this video of New York Democrats House manager Rep. Jerrold Nadler and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, among others, warning that if Clinton were impeached and removed from office, impeachment would become a political tool to remove a president with whom the opposing party disagrees. “You were right!” Cipollone declared at the end of the video montage.

Mollie Hemingway, a senior editor at The Federalist and Senior Journalism Fellow at Hillsdale College lists the “Top 8 Reasons Trump Already Won Impeachment.”


Chandler Unified School Dist. defends radical educrat

January 30, 2020

Public school district emblematic of why charter schools are top rated

This report is so outrageous, it made national news with Breitbart News carrying the details,Arizona High School Teacher Accused of Associating Conservative Values with ‘Fascism

Radical left-wing indoctrination is alive and well in our taxpayer funded public schools.

A history teacher at Casteel High School in Queen Creek, Arizona, has been accused by students and parents of equating conservative values with fascism during a recent history class.

The unnamed female teacher emerges unscathed by the deceit and unconscionable historical revisionism she perpetrated by comparing Hitler to the modern-day Republican party.

The high school, which graduated its first class in 2019, allows this dishonest indoctrination to be propagandized to its students. Principal Jayson Phillips shows himself to be a weak administrator, giving a pass to the educrat.

U.S. News and World Report published its yearly list of top schools across the nation. Once again Arizona Charter Schools topped the list earning the Top Ten slots.

Arizona #REDSforEd public school teachers abandoned over 840,000 students statewide for nearly two weeks while following socialist Noah Karvelis, a 24-year-old unaccredited hip hop music teacher, as they went on strike in violation of their contractual agreements, demanding a 20% pay hike for their part-time jobs. They are now supporting a “tax the rich” socialist ballot scheme to receive ever more money for spewing radical indoctrination.

An important reminder: This is where the supposedly underpaid teachers choose to put their union dues money.* Be sure to scroll down to the ‘Party Split’ graph. 

Then take a moment to tune in to their longstanding agenda (brief video) clearly articulated as far back as 2009, that unequivocally spells out the views of the National Education Association regarding the children they are charged with educating. The words are spoken by Bob Chanin, the NEA legal counsel in a brief excerpt from his revealing retirement speech.
