Gender and race neutral report, bland coverage of federal officer shot by drive-by assailant
A drive-by shooter, referred to as “a person,” was taken into custody after shooting a security officer with the U.S. Marshall’s Office outside the Sandra Day O’Connor Federal Courthouse in downtown Phoenix before noon on Tuesday.
The officer, who was wearing a bullet-proof vest, was later released from the hospital.
This shooting follows the weekend ambush of two Los Angeles County sheriff deputies who were in their parked car when a man walked up and fired multiple rounds shooting each of them in the head. Both deputies required surgeries and are in critical condition.
It took three people to write the brief report of the Phoenix courthouse shooting that appeared in the daily newspaper’s online version, ending with this plea: Support local journalism. Subscribe today.
One of the reporters, Bree Burkitt, is likely in a quandary over how to report on a shooting where the victim is an officer. She holds preconceived notions that law enforcement officers are vicious aggressors and indiscriminant murders who are not punished for their crimes, writing, “Police are shooting people in all walks of life and all Arizona communities.” According to Burkitt’s calculations, they “shoot someone every five days.” Reading as much of this as you can stomach will serve to enlighten how the radically left-wing newspaper actually feels about our law enforcement personnel.
It’s amazing what can be accomplished by journalists without an agenda. 3TV/CBS 5 named and posted a photo of the assailant, 68-year old James Lee Carr. He didn’t fit the hoped for white nationalist profile the AZ Republic’s bigoted crew would have preferred. He’s black and drove away from the crime scene in a silver Cadillac.
If you are among the few remaining subscribers, it’s time put this newsosaur out of its misery. It has betrayed the public trust newspapers once represented.
Requires freshmen write their own anti-American manifesto
This Daily Caller article by Mary Margaret Olohan is too important to put off reading. “How to Overthrow the State,” uncovers the extremist ideology being foisted on first year college students, tied to their all-important GPA.
The Washington and Lee University Writing Course 101 compilation delves into “literature of resistance,” with one “anchored by the exploration of four case studies: Muhammad Ali’s refusal to be inducted into the army; John Carlos and Tommie Smith’s Black Power salute at the 1968 Olympics; Serena Williams’s boycott of Indian Wells; and Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling during the national anthem.”
Another focuses on animal rights and environmental activist writing. Then there is how normative and so-called “non-normative” families form, exploring how “home” intersects with markers of identity, such as race, class, and gender.
Yet another course explores the complexities of and correspondence between “inferiority and otherness” based on factors such as color, gender, education, sexual orientation, privilege, and language. Among those targeted for study is Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. Oh, to be a fly on the wall in that class! Globalization is a major course of study.
One class is anti-religion at its core, questioning if proof beyond a doubt, using reason alone, is sufficient evidence of the existence of God. Students are asked if they should always base beliefs in evidence, or “is it ever reasonable to believe something for which there is no evidence?”
These courses are just the tip of the radical indoctrination iceberg.
Washington and Lee is a private liberal arts university in Lexington, Virginia established in 1749. The school defends a course offering called “How to Overthrow the State” that requires students write their own manifestos.
The course will “explore examples of revolutionary thought and action from across the Global South,” including Marxists Frantz Fanon and Che Guevara, and Mohandas Gandhi.
For this, parents are expected to shell out $73,000 (listed on its website as average annual cost) to ensure their dimpled darlings will emerge as radicals prepared to demolish the United States of America.
Recently, 79% of over 260 faculty members meeting over Zoom voted to remove the name of General Robert E. Lee. For the change to take effect, the school’s board of trustees must approve it.
Prior to the faculty meeting to vote on the name change, three black law school faculty members urged the school to drop both Washington and Lee, writing, “Washington’s brutality, inhumanity and cruelty are well documented. Lee’s reputation for racial violence and hatred is well known. He was a monster.”
Lee died in 1870, after five years as Washington College president. The college’s name was soon changed to Washington and Lee University, honoring his dedication. Lee is buried in a mausoleum inside the Lee Chapel on campus. How long before the chapel will be demolished and Lee’s bones callously thrown into the Potomac?
Slickster Rodney Glassman attempting to promote himself as a middle-man bundler for Pres. Trump and hoping to be rewarded
Today is Labor Day. Now celebrating all American workers, it was originally promoted by labor unions and signed into law June 28, 1894 by President Grover Cleveland.
Although perennial candidate Rodney Glassman wasn’t around in Cleveland’s era, he does have something in common with the former president: Both were Democrats.
Plagued by personal scandals, Cleveland never changed his affiliation, but Glassman, who has run and lost myriad elections, was a lifelong Democrat…until he magically recast himself as a “conservative” Republican during his recent 2020 campaign for Maricopa County Assessor. Glassman lost that primary race also, soundly trounced by incumbent Eddie Cook.
Two short years ago, in 2018, then Corporation Commission candidate Glassman was featured on the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union slate which endorsed only Democrats. His photo is adjacent to that of far left U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, (AZ CD-3) an illegal alien advocate, in whose D.C. office Glassman previously worked.
In 2012 when Democrat Glassman ran for the U.S. Senate from Arizona, he was enthusiastically endorsed by both Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona.
Additionally, Rodney Glassman was a candidate for state chairman of the Arizona Democrat Party, hoping to guide the statewide strategy for defeating Republicans. This post was one in a long string of offices he sought and lost.
Rodney Glassman is desperate for a win. His intent is to buy his way into office…any office.
He’s unmistakably gearing up again, recently sending out bizarre emails soliciting money for President Trump. “Please join me in contributing to President Trump’s re-election campaign by completing the attached contribution form and mailing it to: Rodney Glassman, Trump Victory Fund,” with his law firm’s address. Those who amass funds on behalf of presidential candidates are known as “bundlers,”* often seeking cushy appointments for their efforts. The amounts on the form range from $1,000-$5,000 annually on the low end to $1,161,200 per couple annually. Glassman even offers this inducement: “If you’d like to meet for a coffee or lunch, I would be happy to connect personally for a visit and contribution hand-off.” He signs the email, “Thanks, in advance! Your Friend, Rodney.”
Thanks…but no thanks Rodney. Most of us choose our friends more carefully. And we are perfectly capable of sending in our usually more modest donations to reelect President Trump on our own.
“…The public needs to be able to gauge for itself whether the people elevated to political appointments got there based on their merits or by virtue of their prowess as elite “bundlers.” A study of President Obama’s top-tier fundraisers in 2008 showed that 80% received “key administration posts” as defined by the White House.”

Black Lives Matter militants being promoted in Houses of Worship
A Catholic church in New York City recently hosted a Black Lives Matter prayer session where white congregants were asked to renounce their “white privilege” in the name of “racial justice.”
During the prayer held in St. Xavier Catholic Church worshipers were led in repeating the words of Father Kenneth Boller, who had decorated the altar with giant portraits of George Floyd, Breanna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery.
“Do you affirm that white privilege is unfair and is harmful to those that have it and those who do not? Yes,” Fr. Boller says, leading parishioners to answer in unison.
In July, Bishop Timothy Doherty, of the Diocese of Lafayette in Indiana suspended Rev. Theodore Rothrock, an Indianapolis Catholic priest from public ministry for rationally calling out Black Lives Matter activists in a church bulletin:
“The only lives that matter are their own and the only power they seek is their own. They are wolves in wolves clothing, masked thieves and bandits, seeking only to devour the life of the poor and profit from the fear of others. They are maggots and parasites at best, feeding off the isolation of addiction and broken families, and offering to replace any current frustration and anxiety with more misery and greater resentment.”
Following his suspension, Father Rothrock obediently issued an apology for speaking the truth.
Don’t be fooled by sanctimonious clergy of all denominations, who too often forget their mission and hop on the far left train. BLM partially funded by anti-America Socialist multi-billionaire George Soros, promotes arson, looting and civil unrest across the nation and has received nearly $2 billion from corporate coalitions (shocking list) that are actually funding the dismantling of America.
The Vortex, a vocal Catholic site founded by “Church Militant,” Michael Voris, exposes the fact that BLM is anti-Catholic, calling it “straight up Marxist.”

Who knew? Diversity of those who report the news is as crucial as the news itself
According to leftist thinking of those in charge at the anorexic and hemorrhaging subscriptions* Hillary-endorsing newspaper, hiring based on qualifications is a passé concept. In order to authentically report the news, diversity takes precedent.
This insulting concept invalidates professionals in all walks of life. Having a degree that relates to your line of work is no longer paramount. To be considered a valuable employee it’s imperative you represent a specific ethnicity and have the proper amount of melanin in your skin pigment.
A recent headline, “Representing our diverse community is crucial to telling Arizona’s story. Here’s a look at our staff today,” includes a link to a chart detailing the race and gender of the employees. Each of the newspapers in the Gannett cabal have published the same demeaning stats reflective of staff ethnicity and sexual preferences.
This racial and gender marinated aberration has been gaining momentum as the newspaper routinely showcases minorities with contrived front page coverage with oversize photos, and focuses the entertainment section on black or LBGTQ performers. The lunacy has extended to news reports which increasingly refer to individuals as “the person” rather than “the man” or “the woman.”
From the article:
“For The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com to succeed, we must have an inclusive and diverse workplace where employees are valued and feel empowered.
We must build and sustain a workforce that is reflective of the diversity in the communities we serve. As part of our commitment to an inclusive culture, we will begin annually publishing the makeup of our newsroom staff.”
A more valuable commitment would be to a diversity of ideas rather than the constant barrage of radically leftward skewed news. But that rational concept is unacceptable to the purveyors of vitriolic hatred aimed at President Donald Trump, his dedicated supporters, GOP office holders and candidates. The newspaper, which was stunned when Trump easily defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016, declared it will no longer print pre-election endorsement lists, but doesn’t attempt to conceal its leftist bent on a daily basis. Greg Burton and his diversified staff should write their headlines and craft the articles in advance of the Nov. 3, election. They won’t be able focus when President Trump is reelected and dementia sufferer, Joe Biden can finally stop being exploited by his wife and his party, and return to his basement bunker.

It’s time to acknowledge “systemic racism” is a two-way street though you wouldn’t know it if you watched the Democrat National Convention
It’s past time for some personal reflection. You might regard yourself as a decent sort…maybe even exemplary. You’re a churchgoer, routinely go out to lunch with Jamal or Juan and enjoy yourself, coach a minority majority basketball team and even donated days of your sick leave to Mo’Nique when she had emergency surgery and only a day left of her own leave time.
All of those actions put you in a good co-worker category, so it’s no wonder they had a surprise party for you on your birthday.
Now we find there are others who look upon you not with kindness, but suspicion. These entities don’t actually know you and you pay handsomely for their services, yet they not only hold you in contempt, they want you to know it.
You might ask yourself, “What have I done to earn their wrath?”
The answer is not difficult to find. If you enjoy the Phoenix Art Museum and are a member, they’ve already sent you this missive telling you what they find objectionable. Ditto this email you received if you have your prescriptions filled at the neighborhood Walgreens.
Without provocation, they have declared you part of a newly designated problem known as “systemic racism.”
The Merriam-Webster dictionary recently changed its definition of the word ‘racism’ after receiving an email from Kennedy Mitchum, a young black Duke coed, saying that the definition should include a reference to systemic oppression. An editor responded, eagerly agreeing to update their definition. The change was reported by Forbes’ Diversity & Inclusion editor. Once known as a financial magazine, Forbes now also has a writer who specializes in “LGBT life, identities and being queer.”
Whites have been impacted by reverse discrimination for decades. In 1978, citing evidence that his grades and test scores surpassed those of many minority students who had been accepted for admission to UC Davis School of Medicine while he was rejected, Allan Bakke, a NASA engineer and former Marine officer, charged that he had suffered unfair “reverse discrimination” on the basis of race. He argued this bias was contrary to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution. His case ultimately was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court which ordered Bakke be admitted to UC Davis Medical School, and the school’s practice of arbitrarily reserving 16 seats for minority students was struck down. Read the opinion in the Regents of the University of California v. Allan Bakke case. Dr. Bakke became a well-respected anesthesiologist at the Mayo Clinic, in Rochester, Minnesota.
Desperate Dems display defector for Biden
We’ve all had items of clothing that have become so worn and threadbare they’re not worthy of being donated. Former politicians are somewhat different. John Kasich stands as living proof that becoming irrelevant hasn’t kept him from being a threadbare turncoat useful to the Democrats.
In fact, the former Ohio Governor, congressman and presidential candidate, who was elected to numerous statewide offices as a Republican, spoke at the Monday opening of the cringe-worthy virtual 2020 Democrat National Convention in support of less-than-on-the-ball presidential nominee Joe Biden. Kept hidden in his basement by his campaign handlers, Biden hasn’t agreed to substantive interviews since his candidacy was announced. In serious cognitive decline, inhibiting his ability to clearly communicate, the risk is too great. It’s doubtful he is capable of emerging for a debate. Democrats view Biden as nothing more than a placeholder for Kamala Harris who fits their new identity politics narrative. Biden’s frantic strategists, trying to hold the charade together until election day, have devised the retaliatory strategy of ridiculing President Trump and VP Pence for making trips the Democrats say threaten public health.
Kasich said his conscience compelled him to speak out against President Donald Trump and in support of Biden, stating, “I’ve been a reformer almost all of my life. I’ve been very independent and I’m a Republican but the Republican Party has always been my vehicle but never my master.”
In other words, John Kasich admits he used the Republican Party to further his ambitions.
When he ran for U.S. President in the 2016 Primary Election, Kasich was endorsed by the radically leftwing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic newspaper, an acknowledgment that unquestionably defined him.
Biden’s campaign, meanwhile, has resorted to chastising President Trump and VP Pence for making campaign trips the Democrats foolishly claim threaten public health. President Trump will be in Yuma, Arizona today, no doubt welcomed by cheering supporters.
This is the form ‘Demand Daniel’ McCarthy has made available to survey the enthusiasm among Arizona voters for starting a new political party in the wake of his massively overwhelming loss. Using the royal “we” meaning “I” McCarthy accurately concluded, “We got our butts kicked.” Sen. Martha McSally garnered 75.6% of the vote compared to McCarthy’s 24.4%. In raw numbers, McSally leads by 360,326 votes.
The local press reported his petulant quote:
“I’m not going to get in the way of the general election. We just want to take the next couple of days and really dig in. It looks like constitutional conservatism doesn’t have a voice in the Republican Party.”
What egotistical political novice McCarthy fails to comprehend is that conservatives willingly cast their ballots for Republican incumbent U.S. Senator Martha McSally, endorsed by President Trump. They recognize that open borders Socialist George Soros supported candidate Mark Kelly has deep ties to Communist China, putting $millions more in Kelly‘s pockets. Kelly’s ‘Giffords PAC’ raises funds for national anti-Second Amendment leftist candidates.
Sen. Martha McSally’s Democrat rival Mark Kelly poses a serious threat to the balance of power in the U.S. Senate. Currently, Republicans lead by a slim margin. This is the breakdown: Republicans (53 seats), Democrats (45 seats), and 2 Independents who both caucus with the Democrats, bringing the total to 53 – 47. Lacking a senate majority President Trump’s hands would be tied in such vital areas (enumerated here) as entering into international treaties and filling executive and judicial vacancies. There is likely to be another opportunity as radically left, onetime ACLU lawyer, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, age 87, has been in seriously declining health, as reported in a series of press releases from the high court.
Ill-equipped to handle the job, Daniel McCarthy was out of his realm as seen in this televised interview that will long be instructional for novice candidates.
“Well, if he (Pres. Trump) can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about,” Biden opined.
During a recent interview, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was asked by CBS News’ Errol Barnett if he’s taken a cognitive test. His incoherent response is proof that he needs to schedule an evaluation with a neurologist.
