Border czarina Harris visits AZ, stays 100 miles away from chaotic border

January 20, 2023

Biden’s VP and specially designated Border Czar, Kamala Harris, accompanied by two cabinet secretaries, Biden’s climate advisor and newly installed democrat Gov. Katie Hobbs, went to Tonopah, Arizona to visit the site of an energy infrastructure project intended to connect solar and wind power grids in Arizona and California. The administration’s three visitors and Hobbs increased the unincorporated town‘s population significantly. According to the 2020 census, the population of Tonopah was 23, down from 60 at the 2010 census. Latest numbers show it with a grand total of 11 residents.

Tonopah is near the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station in western Maricopa County, 52 miles west of downtown Phoenix. Most Arizonans couldn’t give directions to Tonopah which suits inarticulate and often lacking facts Kamala Harris. Since there is no separate government or media she will not be greeted by a mayor, council members, or local press. There couldn’t be a safer spot for incompetent Kamala to visit and deliver another garbled message, punctuated by her famous cackles.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection under the auspices of the Biden administration, no longer posts daily numbers of illegal aliens criminally invading the USA and the previously successful efforts to apprehend and deport them, since that is no longer a priority. Why would there be any restraints on future democrats? The Biden/Harris agenda is not the ‘America First’ mission of President Donald Trump, or those who proudly supported him.

The harsh economic reality is evident with Google’s announcement that its parent company Alphabet Inc. is slashing 12,000 jobs worldwide in the latest round of layoffs to hit the technology sector — following Microsoft‘s recent news it would cut 10,000 jobs amid a slowing global economy. Those impacted are educated. Yet Biden has opened America’s floodgates to unskilled, uneducated and impoverished who will present an increased drain on American taxpayers as prices continue to surge under Bidenflation.

SRAZ reminds our readers to thank the democrats you know. Then avoid them like the anti-American defectors they are.


Biden plays chef-in-chief, tells us how to cook

January 10, 2023

When building from scratch or remodeling, one of the most important kitchen appliances is a high quality stove. Whether home chefs or professionals, many prefer gas cook tops and ovens, despite the fact prices are usually considerably higher, it’s a personal choice.

Or at least we thought so.

Who knew Joe Biden would be interested in our kitchen appliances? Not only does Biden plan to end purchases of gas-powered vehicles by 2035 in a move to lower emissions and promote electric cars, Biden’s US Consumer Product Safety Commission will move to eliminate gas stoves, claiming new research links them to childhood asthma (along with belly-button lint and toenail fungus?).

Within short order of assuming office, Biden nominated Rich Trumka Jr.— the son of Richard Trumka, (died August 2021) the longtime president of the nation’s largest labor union, the AFL-CIO, — to serve as the next commissioner of the Consumer Product Safety Commission, described as “an independent government organization” with wide-ranging authority over consumer goods.

Knowing where his bread is buttered, Junior Trumka endorsed Biden in the 2020 election, bringing the union vote along with him, despite Biden killing countless good-paying jobs connected to the Keystone XL pipeline.

Shortly after his inauguration, Biden canceled the federal permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, a project that would have transported 830,000 barrels of oil per day from Canada to the Gulf Coast, estimated to cost thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in economic activity, according to a new report from the U.S. Department of Energy.

Crucial news not worthy of print in skewed AZ Republic

October 3, 2022

As subscriptions continue to plummet, the radically left-wing, Hillary-endorsing, Trump-despising Arizona Republic remains bonded to its extreme policies, as exemplified by this irrationally biased headline, “Voters denied opportunity to reject school voucher lie.” When a man throwing rocks at police officers was shot, the officers, not the assailant, were vilified.

Language is grotesquely twisted to fit its agenda as demonstrated in a recent report about abortion in which political correctness reigned, as the words “pregnant individual” were used to describe a woman. The gender neutral, newly trendy nonbinary usurped pronoun “they” was used to describe a man. Illegal invaders, flooding into the United States unabated, are foolishly referred to as “migrants,“ as if they intend to return home.

When Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a democrat mired in personal financial problems, yet now running for governor, with the responsibility of overseeing an $18 billion budget, neglected to report earlier supplemental income earned as an Uber driver, she was allowed to quietly amend her financial disclosure form. Previously, as a state legislator, Hobbs voted in favor of bills benefiting ride share companies. When state senate minority leader, Hobbs fired Talonya Adams — a black female staff attorney, who had been in her position longer than Hobbs — for asking to be paid on the same level as her white, male counterparts. Adams sued and won a $2.75 million verdict issued by two separate juries. Hobbs eventually apologized. The newspaper ignored this outrage that would have garnered headlines if the bigoted actions had been taken by a Republican.

This recent Gatestone Institute in-depth report titled, “Biden Administration’s Gift to Russia: Iran Nuke Deal,” is not considered relevant enough for the local newspaper to cover.

Although the desperate newspaper finally stopped printing pages listing political endorsements after backlash made the policy financially reckless, its relentlessly biased content takes the place of pre-election lists.  It recently printed a half-page of “Election Deniers,” further pushing the big lie that the newspaper promulgates. Of course they are all Republicans.

Statista reports the daily circulation of the Arizona Republic in 2021 amounted to 109.03 thousand, down by more than seven thousand from the previous year. To say this is not a successful business model is the height of understatement.

Bible vs. Big Bro Joe

April 29, 2022

Light bulbs, toilets not the purview of the federal government

According to Genesis 1:14, the first book of the Bible, “On the fourth day of creation, God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years.”

Obviously God believed adequate light was crucially important.

That is inconsequential to frail Joe Biden’s handlers who have indicated they are phasing out incandescent light bulbs in favor of lighting they prefer, intended, they claim, to conserve energy. This will not be an option, but a mandate. Homeowners will have no choice in the matter, regardless of what they prefer in their own homes. This invasion of our freedoms was given excellent coverage in, “Why Light Bulbs Sum Up The Complete And Total Failure Of Liberalism,“when it initially surfaced. Barack Obama was desiring to focus on Climate Change legislation.

We’ve been down this leftist road before. Bill Clinton mandated low flush toilets, which required two flushes to completely clear the bowl, in direct opposition to the stated water saving purpose. Dems are bonded to promoting perceptions rather than utilizing common sense.

And who is Biden’s latest Department of Energy hire? Sam Brinton, a nonbinary drag queen — ‘an asset,’ say queer activists, as reported by Yahoo! Life.

In the face of historic inflation that is gut-punching American families struggling to make ends meet, impacting basics, such as food, housing, utilities and gas in your tank, the Department of Energy has announced new rules that change the definition of general service lamps and set a minimum standard of 45 lumens for light bulbs that meet a revised definition. Once the new rules are in effect, manufacturers will be required to sell only energy-efficient light bulbs. Preposterously, this sleigh of hand tries to convince Americans we will save $100 yearly, while a single loaf of bread has risen in price by over $5.19 according to this scrollable Consumer Price Index, via the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Citing unsubstantiated figures in 2009, Barack Obama claimed the new efficiency standards he promoted for lamps “would result in substantial savings between 2012 and 2042, saving consumers up to $4 billion annually, conserving enough energy to power every U.S. home for 10 months, reducing emissions equal to the amount produced by 166 million cars a year, and eliminating the need for as many as 14 coal-fired power plants.”

A prolific liar, Obama was banking on the fact that the majority of those who heard his message would no longer be above ground using energy.

Overpaid Postmaster General “lowers expectations,” raises prices

May 30, 2021

Schools have stopped teaching cursive and good manners have taken a back seat in our coarsened society, so receiving a hand written thank you note for a gift or a letter is a likelihood that has mostly been put to rest. Emails have been replaced by text messaging, so even the voice inflections in a phone call are missed as communication is more frequently through brief and distanced filters. 

But U. S. Postmaster General, Louis DeJoy, has a brilliant plan to address the problems faced by the government agency he oversees. He recently announced a new ten-year plan, that includes higher postage prices, longer delivery times and reduced post office hours. Not content to raise the price of a one-ounce letter or card by the usual one-cent increase, the new increase will jump from 55 cents to 58 cents. Read the press release announcing these and other changes.

The impact will be crushing for the greeting card industry. We all send and receive fewer holiday cards as prices have continually escalated. Magazine subscriptions, which must reflect the increasing mailing costs, have plummeted. Countless jobs have been lost. 

These concerns don’t affect DeJoy, whose base salary, excluding benefits and perks, is $303,460. He said that he expects these plans will save the post office through the lowering of consumer expectations and costs.

How much lower could consumer expectations plummet?

The American Postal Workers Union (APWU) represents over 200,000 employees and retirees of the United States Postal Service who belong to the Clerk, Maintenance, Motor Vehicle, and Support Services divisions. It also represents approximately 2,000 private-sector mail workers.

Career letter carriers get a “step increase” every 46 weeks. Other increases are cost of living and yearly increase that occur in November. And your mail carrier who drives a truck and no longer slogs through the snow, rain, heat or gloom of night?*

This is the Letter Carrier Pay Schedule, implemented April 10 2021.

* “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds” are the words chiseled in gray granite over the entrance of the New York City Post Office in Manhattan.

Maricopa County leads the way as 2020 ballot audit momentum spreads

May 28, 2021

Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Montana moving for full forensic audits

These are the recent headlines and linked reports:

Citizens Launch Petition To Audit The Vote In Pennsylvania, Citing ‘Alleged Fraud’

Forensic results in 9 Michigan counties found 66,104 unregistered ballots; Secretary of State stalls

BREAKING: Wisconsin Officially Launches Audit of 2020 Election

Mail-In Voting Audit of Montana’s 2020 Elections Finds Significant Number of Irregularities

Regardless of the attempts to characterize Maricopa County Republican truth seekers as fringe conspiracy theorists, the notion that Americans have a right to verify the November 2020 election results is gaining momentum across the nation. This national map shows the final electoral votes. Move your cursor to individual states to view the final votes:

In Georgia the final vote was 49.5% for Joe Biden vs. 49.3% for President Trump.

Pennsylvania: 50.0% for Biden, 48.8% for Trump.

Wisconsin’s tally was 49.6 for Biden, 48.9% for Trump.

The final statewide Arizona vote tally was a razor slim, hardly confidence inspiring, 49.04% for Biden to 49.01%  for Trump.

Maricopa County Election audit: DOJ partisan sharks in the tank

May 17, 2021

The Epoch Times’ Jack Phillips reports another bombshell as it relates to the ongoing ballot audit. Headlined, “GOP Chair Elise Stefanik: Justice Department Is ‘Trying to Block’ Maricopa County Audit,”it is a must read. 

U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who was recently elected as the House Republican Conference chair, replacing ousted Liz Cheney, said the Department of Justice’s questions about the audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County, Arizona, may be unconstitutional.

“I support that audit,” Stefanik said after being asked about the audit in a Fox Business interview Sunday. “Transparency is good for the American people. And again, this should be a non-partisan issue, whether you are Republican, Democrat, independent, or conservative, transparency is important and the audit was passed by the Arizona State Senate.”

Stefanik later said that the “Biden Department of Justice is trying to block that audit,” which she said, “is unconstitutional from my perspective,” adding, “Our states, constitutionally, are responsible for writing states’ constitution law.”

Pamela Karlan, (check link) an ill-mannered, left-wing partisan and principal deputy assistant attorney general with the Biden administration’s Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, sent this May 5 letter to Arizona Senate President Karen Fann (R-LD1) that a “description of the proposed work of the audit raises concerns regarding potential intimidation of voters.” Fann, in response, said that the plan by election auditors to verify the validity of certain individual voters was placed on hold.

“If and to the extent the Senate subsequently decides that canvassing is necessary to the successful completion of the audit, its vendor will implement detailed requirements to ensure that the canvassing is conducted in a manner that complies fully with the commands of the United States Constitution and federal and state civil rights laws,” Fann wrote earlier this month.

Stefanik’s comments Sunday came just days after Dominion Voting Systems and Maricopa County officials said they would not provide passwords for election machines in Maricopa County. Dominion argued that it would comply with the audit, but it added that Cyber Ninjas, the company hired by the Arizona Senate, isn’t accredited by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.

Stefanik, who was supported by former President Trump and GOP House leaders, was approved by House Republicans in a 134 to 46 vote last week to chair the Republican Conference, the party’s Number 3 position in the House of Representatives.

AZ Senate Republicans proceed with 2020 election audit

April 1, 2021

Long-awaited independent audit finally comes to fruition

Gateway Pundit carries the report that the leftist and hemorrhaging subscribers Arizona Republic only alludes to in the most contemptuous of terms, usually employing its two snarky columnists to indulge in ridiculing Republicans and their desire to verify the 2020 election.

Under the banner headline, HUGE BREAKING NEWS: Arizona Senate Republicans Courageously Announce Team Who Will Perform Maricopa County Election Audit and It’s Good News for America!, is the celebratory article which scooped the local newspaper. It comes complete with the Arizona Senate Press Release issued by Senate President Karen Fann (R-LD1), titled, “Arizona Senate hires auditor to review 2020 election in Maricopa County.”

Read it and rejoice in the determination of those GOP truth seekers Arizonans elected statewide.

The press release concludes with these words: “Because it is an independent audit, leadership will not be directly involved, and members do not expect to comment on any of the processes of the audit until the report is issued in about 60 days.”

We’ve waited since Nov. 3, 2020.  We can wait until June 1, 2021.

Bank of America spies on customers, gives info to FBI

February 5, 2021

Searches data for “extremists” purchases

If you have accounts with Bank of America, you’re likely aware of the company’s slogan, “We’re here to help.” The question is, “Who?”

The latest news regarding Bank of America qualifies as chilling. During his Feb. 4, 2021 program, Tucker Carlson reported that Bank of America has been secretly turning over customer data to the FBI. SRAZ has included intact portions of Carlson’s commentary. Read it in its entirety here.

“Tucker Carlson Tonight” has exclusively obtained evidence that Bank of America, the second-largest bank in the country with more than 60 million customers, is actively but secretly engaged in the hunt for extremists in cooperation with the government. Bank of America is, without the knowledge or the consent of its customers, sharing private information with federal law enforcement agencies. Bank of America effectively is acting as an intelligence agency, but they’re not telling you about it.

In the days after the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, Bank of America went through its own customers’ financial and transaction records. These were the private records of Americans who had committed no crime; people who, as far as we know, had absolutely nothing to do with what happened at the Capitol on Jan. 6. But at the request of federal investigators, Bank of America searched its databases looking for people who fit a specific profile.

Here’s what that profile was:

1. Customers confirmed as transacting, either through bank account debit card or credit card purchases in Washington, D.C. between 1/5 and 1/6.

2. Purchases made for Hotel/Airbnb RSVPs in DC, VA, and MD after 1/6.

3. Any purchase of weapons or at a weapons-related merchant between 1/7 and their upcoming suspected stay in D.C. area around Inauguration Day.

4. Airline related purchases since 1/6.

The first thing you should notice about that profile is that it’s remarkably broad. Any purchases of anything in Washington, D.C.; any overnight stay anywhere in an area spanning three jurisdictions and hundreds of miles; any purchase not just of legal firearms, but anything bought from a “weapons related merchant,” T-shirts included; and any airline-related purchases — not just flights to Washington, but flights to anywhere, from Omaha, to Thailand.

That is a very, very wide net, an absurdly wide net. Bank of America identified a total of 211 customers who met these “thresholds of interest.” At that point, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” learned, Bank of America turned over the results of its internal scan to federal authorities, apparently without notifying the customers who were being spied upon. Federal investigators then interviewed at least one of these unsuspecting people. That person, we’ve learned, hadn’t done anything wrong and was cleared.

SRAZ notes on this page, BofA features a woman named Janet Murguia, blandly identified as a “Civil Rights Activist.” Her topic? “In Unity There Is Strength — the fight to end systemic inequality.” If her name doesn’t ring a bell, this information will help.

Janet Murguia, was the longtime President and CEO of the National Council of La Raza* — “the Race,” a group whose two-sentence motto is alarming to everyone who values equal rights for all: “For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing.” When its radical name became too toxic, it rebranded itself as UnidosUS, embracing the deceptive term “undocumented immigrants.” Actual immigrants arrive legally and have identifying documents. The others are illegal aliens.

In 2020 Bank of America announced it was donating a $1 billion (obtained from overcharging their own customers) to “minority communities and minority owned businesses.” This was in the wake of the violently destructive BLM anarchists looting and then torching businesses and police departments, destroying national monuments, overturning police vehicles and throwing cinder blocks, pre-delivered on pallets, at officers. 

Is this the banking conglomerate, more concerned with globalism and climate change than the security of their customers, you want to trust with your money?
