With FBI Director Christopher Wray’s new release of facts from the 500+ page Department of Justice Inspector General’s report regarding the “rooting out of bias” perpetrated against presidential candidate Donald Trump* from within the highest levels of government, examine the same type of anti-Trump bias displayed right here in Arizona. In this instance, we’re not referring to the contrived attempt at influence peddling by former president Bill Clinton as he boarded the plane of then-U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport as it appeared increasingly likely his wife would face criminal charges — which ultimately never materialized. They claimed to have discussed their grandchildren.
No. These hits don’t originate with D.C. power brokers or with a partisan former FBI Director shamefully exemplified by James Comey, who gave the deceitful Mrs. Clinton a pass for her countless illicit transgressions, but on the pages of the local newspaper where relentless attacks against candidate, and now President Donald Trump, remains the subject of multi-pronged, repetitive hits.
Who can forget Phil Boas? He’s the editorial page editor of the anorexic and failing Arizona Republic, better known for his loathsome dedication to bringing down 6-term Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio — Boas’ own father-in-law.
All Republicans — except pretenders John McCain and Jeff Flake — are worthy of this partisan goon’s savagery. He despises President Donald Trump with such visceral animosity that his editorial regarding the historic Singapore meeting Trump negotiated with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a leading despot on the world’s stage, is titled, “God help us if Trump solved N. Korea.”
It so rankles Boas that the businessman President who wrote, “The Art of the Deal,” just might have averted a global nuclear catastrophe, it leaves him editorially sputtering, “God help us,” numerous times in the editorial. Boas has lived to middle age without comprehending that those words are uttered by desperate people seeking divine intervention in hopeless situations.
Those of us who comprehend the significance of such a meeting that has not previously occurred in any administration in nearly 75 years — since the Korean peninsula was divided following World War II — are awed by this extraordinary summit, that showcased cordiality from the leaders of both countries.
Rather than rejoicing or giving credit where it’s due, Phil Boas begrudgingly concedes, “It’s a long shot, but there is reason to believe Trump could actually pull this off. Kim could have caught the vision,“ he contemptuously writes, “and if he has, he could make Trump look like a genius.”
Followed by another plea, “God help us.”
The Hillary Clinton-endorsing liberals at the newspaper would rather have nukes aimed at the United States, Japan and South Korea than concede that President Trump should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Barack Obama received the honor simply for breathing. He was nominated within 12 days of taking the oath of office. Read the fascinating time line by attorney Tommy De Seno.
And, as far as the local newspaper? If you’re still one of the remaining subscribers, ditch it. Why support a publication that holds you and our president in contempt?
* As usual, the U.K.”s Daily Mail provides excellent in-depth coverage.
