Skewing the news Arizona style

April 20, 2019

No wonder the Arizona Republic is dying

With its last gasps, the dying, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper continues to spew venom at Republicans. On Jan. 1, 2019, the newspaper was described as ahomeless vagrant on borrowed time,” after having been forced, by declining readership and following massive layoffs, to sell the building and parking structure it has occupied for decades.

Limited vocabulary when describing Republicans is de rigueur. It spikes into incendiary high gear when conservatives are the topic. 

A classic example is a column by sob-story aficionada turned bomb thrower, Laurie Roberts, who describes physician Kelli Ward, the newly elected state Republican chairwoman, using these intended to incite words: “Ward is the reigning queen of the far-right fringe.” Columnist Robert Robb described Dr. Ward’s election as “meaningless.” The backdrop for Robb’s assertion is border security, which his pro-open border and amnesty supporting employer, The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) adamantly opposes. He now sings its tune like a trained parrot.

What Laurie Roberts refers to as the “far-right fringe,” are actually the majority of grassroots Republican elected state committeemen who elected Dr. Ward, a former state senator, while strongly objecting to the prospect of reelecting the ineffectual phantom chairman Jonathan Lines. He was put in place by his slippery predecessor Robert Graham, who still ran the party since Lines resides 200 miles away in Yuma, runs a roofing business and has 11 kids to parent.

The newspaper also has former state senate president Russell Pearce in its sights again. He is referred to as a “hard right conservative.“ In AZ Republicese, this is no compliment. His current job is listed twice in the same article, just in case rabble-rousers missed it the first time.

The report veers off the charts by referring to groups labeled “extremist” by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The group which the newspaper refers to as “monitoring hate,” has itself been outed as a source of vicious hate. Watch this 5-minute Prager University video for a healthy dose of truth.

The agenda driven newspaper continues to harp on the Mueller report as if President Trump had been found guilty of obstruction of justice or Russian collusion, when exactly the opposite conclusion was reached. Though dying of a thousand self-inflicted cuts, it follows many of its articles with these words, “Support local journalism. Subscribe to (gives an email address.)”

Hari-Kari is an ancient Japanese form of ritual suicide by disembowelment. The Arizona Republic is taking the slower path, but the result will be the same. Insulting its remaining subscribers is not a successful business model, yet it is the one to which it is bonded.

Newspaper Death Watch is a web site chronicling the demise of hard copy newspapers, including a section called ‘Works In Progress,’ listing major metro dailies that have cut frequency or adopted hybrid online/print or online-only models. It won’t be much longer before the anorexic, radically left-wing local daily joins the list.

Pres. Trump vindicated! Vile key AZ agent unmentioned

April 19, 2019

Mueller conclusion: No collusion

The left is in full-blown meltdown mode following the conclusion of a two-and-a-half-year investigation, the end game of which was to charge President Trump with Russian collusion in connection with the 2016 election, culminating, they hoped, in charges of impeachment. Preceding the release, Thursday’s edition of the Hillary Clinton-endorsing Arizona Republic headlined, “White House braces for report.” The single page USA Today insert warned, “Trump team mobilizes for Mueller’s report…Plan: Read quickly, put out responses.” 

The collusion charges fell with a dull thud as the 448-page Mueller Report not only exonerated President Trump but also his relatives and associates, who have been put through daily hell as the manufactured hoax gained momentum via repetition by Congressional Democrats and their willing cohorts in the leftist media. The radically obsessed Trump haters have perfected a means of dispensing words and phrases which are repeated in mynahesque fashion by like-thinking adherents throughout the day. The networks have been filled with commentators using identical language (example).

Trump Derangement Syndrome has moved from a catch phrase describing the lunacy of Never-Trumpers to a observable disorder with obvious contagious symptoms. Most noticeable is the lack of focus, followed by voices raising several octaves, slurred speech, reddened faces and indignation induced tremors.

Now they have to admit the phony “dossier,” was a construct by the campaign of Hillary Clinton with the sole purpose of discrediting Donald Trump.

When John McCain was alive, a fear of his notorious retribution techniques forced silence. After three cross country funerals in a week last year, it’s a safe bet John McCain is no longer above ground.

Now its been verified that the vengeful and jealous McCain was key to the sordid hoax intended to bring down the candidacy of Donald Trump, and keep him out of the White House.

McCain worked on behalf of his close friend Hillary Clinton, alleging the Russians had compromising information on candidate Trump, personally delivering it to then-FBI Director James Comey in 2016.

In his own inimitable and vulgar style, McCain 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. Neither serious illness nor even death should obscure the facts of his key role in purposely spreading vicious lies and attempting to keep Donald Trump from the presidency, a position McCain coveted but, thankfully, never attained.


Support for rebuilding Notre Dame questioned by AZ Republic

April 17, 2019

While the world mourns the destructive fire at Paris’ nearly 900-year-old Notre Dame Cathedral, the local newspaper poses this question: “…But some ask: What about our sacred sites?” The article was written by Shondiin Silversmith, identified as an “Indigenous Peoples Reporter.”

After the Notre Dame Cathedral was partially destroyed by a fire Monday, funds immediately started to roll in for reconstruction.

With an outpouring of support from across the world, many Indigenous people asked, where is this support when Indigenous people fight for their sacred sites?

Our answer, of course, will be politically incorrect by the leftist standards of the newspaper.  But not nearly on par with U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who responded with this outrageously insulting tweet neutering the actual significance of the Christian cathedral to a loss of “art and architecture.” Somali-born Omar, who wears a hijab head scarf in congress, is the one who described the horrors of Sept. 11, 2001 by saying, “Some people did something,” not wanting to describe the deliberate murders of 2,977 people as being perpetrated by 19 of her radicalized co-religionists who hijacked commercial airliners, flying two of them directly into the World Trade Center towers and another into the Pentagon. The New York Post responded with this spot-on front page, seen following this post.

The nationwide prospect of high stakes casino gambling that began flourishing on tribal land in the 1970’s had the immediate impact of turning sacred sites into lucrative ones. Indian reservation gambling generates far more income than Atlantic City and Las Vegas combined. Arizona, alone, has more than two dozen casinos. The national list is available here.

This 2017 press release from the National Indian Gaming Commission reports, Fiscal Year 2017 Gross Gaming Revenue amount saw an increase of 3.9% over 2016, totaling $32.4 billion.

The newspaper quotes America-hating Klee Benally whose website uses this descriptive language as an identifier:

“Indigenous Action Media (IAM) was founded on August 25th, 2001 to provide strategic communications and direct action support for Indigenous communities sacred lands defense. We are a radical volunteer collective of experienced Indigenous media makers & agitators that work together on a project by project basis for media justice from an anti-colonial & anti-capitalist framework.”

President Donald Trump is compared to Hitler, an indefensible slur used by the historically illiterate Benally. Still he is quoted as if he were a mainstream American rather than one who abhors our system that has allowed him the freedom to sit at a computer and spew venom.


Cindy McCain: A star is born

April 14, 2019

Slickly hones acting skills

Within days of learning that Cindy Lou Hensley McCain has hired a Beverly Hills talent agency to arrange speaking engagements and book global events for her, she is featured as the first guest on a new NBC series, “Her Take with Cynthia McFadden.” The show carries the tagline, “some of the women are famous, many not, but all have a ‘take.’”

Of course, Cindy’s “take” is criticizing President Trump. Would anyone expect anything less? The McCain‘s have never gotten over the fact that Donald Trump was swept into office when McCain barely carried the state of Arizona by a mere 8 points as a failed 2008 presidential candidate. Republicans took McCain’s mother’s advice and held their noses as they voted for Johnny.

The Anheuser-Busch beer heiress has found a niche combating human trafficking. Mixing her metaphors, she asserts border walls don’t deter human trafficking in the United States. The actual reason for border security is to stop the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who intentionally breach our sovereign border, though she obviously missed that crucial aspect.

She also criticizes the lack of civility in public life, something she contributed to in raising her boorish daughter, Mega. (Not a typo.)

Cindy McCain is so bonded to exposing human trafficking, she reported a parent whose child was a different ethnicity to police at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport accusing the family of child trafficking. This bizarre action, for which she later apologized after initially lying about the circumstances, took place although she is the adoptive mother of Bridget, who was born in Bangladesh, and bears no resemblance to the former junior rodeo queen.

In the NBC interview, as Cindy laments the current lack of civility in Washington, she claimed it was something her husband detested. Her flawed recollection was of a man “who engaged in debates based on issues that could lead to bipartisan solutions,” which is a newly burnished image for the mean-spirited and crude John McCain whose vulgarity was publicly extended to her. He was best known for fighting Republicans at every turn as he teamed with Democrats on myriad issues and was more bonded to amnesty for illegals than he was to securing our nation’s border. This is a prime example (19-second video) of his sterling character as his single vote put the screws to the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare.

In the interview, Cindy McCain said “she still is a Republican,” though with a caveat: “I just don’t agree with many parts of my party right now.”  Many of “her party” never agreed with her Republicrat husband.

During the 2016 Trump/Clinton election, the McCain family let it be known they would not be supporting the Republican nominee. The other candidate was scandal-plagued and deceitful Hillary Clinton, described by McCain arock star.“


Pres. Trump‘s new border strategy shows he’s crazy as a fox

April 13, 2019

After being repeatedly thwarted in his efforts to obtain adequate funding for a much needed wall on our southern border, President Donald Trump has tweeted his acknowledgement that he is considering sending the hundreds of thousands of illegal invaders from Central America to sanctuary cities within the United States.

“Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing illegal immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Today, we direct our readers to a cogent editorial in Investor’s Business Daily, titled,Yes, Democrats Are Now The Party Of Open Borders.”  Its wisdom was prophetic, since it was written prior to the most recent surge of caravans of invaders from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras being given access to the United States by our “good neighbor” Mexico. They claim to be refugees, fleeing untenable conditions in their home countries, but don’t seek asylum as they arrive in Mexico — whose obvious purpose is to facilitate the invasion.

The Center for Immigration Studies lists Sanctuary cities, counties and states.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a far left Democrat, said, “it’s just another notion that is unworthy of the presidency of the United States and disrespectful of the challenges that we face, as a country, as a people, to address who we are, a nation of immigrants.”

Pelosi, who lives behind a secure wall in her sanctuary city hometown of San Francisco, omits the fact that previous generations of immigrants arrived here legally, were processed at Ellis Island and gratefully became Americanized, learning English, and taking on our history and culture as their own. Those leaving repression did not march through American cities waving the flags of the countries they left, access benefits and continue to engage in high rates criminality while showing contempt for the United States of America.

The ironically inconsistent headline in this morning’s edition of Arizona’s pro-illegal and open border newspaper?  “Trump still might use migrants against Dems.” 


Candace Owens brilliantly assesses Democrat policies

April 10, 2019

You won’t see this on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, MSNBC….

Candace Owens commanded the attention (video) of the House Judiciary Committee meeting where she was an invited guest Tuesday. Speaking on the topic of white nationalism and hate crimes, Owens, a black conservative, accused Democrats on the panel of focusing on “fear-mongering, power and control” rather than on the issue of racism. As the director of communications for Turning Point USA  she’s honed her public speaking skills, making her appearance at the hearing spellbinding. Arizona is well represented with 17 chapters throughout the state.

Owens emphasized that the country needs to talk more about what she identified as ‘harassment of conservatives of color. ‘”We’re not talking enough about political hatred in this country.”

At age 29, Owens, an ardent supporter of President Trump, is a compelling public speaker. She has been working to persuade black Americans to leave the Democrat Party, which counts their votes as a given, doing nothing to earn their support.

“We need to condemn all types of hate speech,” she stated.

Owens reminded lawmakers about a “double standard” that she says allows criticism of black conservatives, Christians and Jews.

AZ’s U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs (CD-5), is a member of the House Judiciary Committee before which Candace Owens appeared. This is an example of his bold leadership as he recently spoke about another House member who has repeatedly accused Jewish Americans of holding dual loyalties, a malicious anti-Semitic slur that predates Adolf Hitler.


Amid catastrophic invasion, Homeland Security chief Nielson resigns

April 8, 2019

 

U.S. Border officials overwhelmed by the vast number of invaders

Clearly not fulfilling the duties of the job, Kirstjen Nielson tweeted her terse, sans salutation, 2-page letter of resignation as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security to the President of the United States.

With lightening speed, making it clear this much needed change was in the works, President Trump then announced that Kevin McAleenan, the current U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner, will become Acting Secretary Of the Department.

Nielson appeared at the border with President Trump during a Friday visit to Calexico, California, as the president pushed for more strenuous efforts to curtail the indefensible surge of illegals and reiterated the urgent need to complete the border wall. Funding for the national security imperative is being withheld by congressional Democrats, whose hatred for the president overshadows their commitment to the safety and security of the United States.

Illegal border crossings are at an 11-year high. Brassy Central Americans, traveling in massive caravans, have replaced single Mexican men as the bulk of illegal border crossers, more likely to enter covertly.

Central American invaders, from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, coached by lawyers representing them, claim to be families, with children in tow — not necessarily related to the adults — who use them to claim refugee status. They confidently surrender themselves to Border Patrol or I.C.E., which are now forced to release them since they are filled to capacity and unable to process them. The illegals are given a court date at which they never appear, since they are relocated in states far from the border and reliant on taxpayer supported benefits.

Border security officials estimate the number of foreign nationals violating our sovereign southern border could reach 1 million by the end of 2019, according to what is likely an under-report by far-left ABC News.

Federal officials estimate illegal crossings have exceeded 95,000 in March and will reach 100,000 in April, putting 2019 on track to reach numbers not previously seen.

Mexico, whom we are repeatedly told is our valuable trading partner and “neighbor” to the south, has assisted these human caravans, allowing them safe passage to the United States. Whether Mexican or Central American, they are fulfilling their overarching pledge of Aztlan Reconquista (not recent but still relevant video).
