Sundowner’s Syndrome consumes AZ newspaper

April 17, 2021

Failing Arizona Republic contrives to divert attention from Biden’s missteps

Occurring at end of life, Sundowner’s Syndrome is a disease often accompanying dementia where patients reject nourishment and hasten their own demise. 

The seriously declining, Trump-hating, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic, consumed by blatant loathing of Republicans, exhibits signs of the debilitating disease.  A recent weekend edition was a tribute to vacuous nothingness, though featuring a multi-page, pre-written report, stretching over several days, focusing on a fugitive killer who brutally murdered his wife and children and then blew up their Scottsdale home in 2001. This tragic but ancient news took precedent over covering the radical Joe Biden administration’s previously unimaginable political overreaches, gaffes and missteps on the world stage.

The far leftist newspaper which routinely eviscerates Arizona’s Republican members of congress, and other GOP elected officials, as it slobbers praise on the democrats, still runs regurgitated columns by Clay Thompson who died in 2018, no longer requiring a salary or benefits.

A front page report covers the Tucson police chief being selected by the Biden administration to head U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The two-page report uses the second sentence to describe Chris Magnus as a “critic of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.” That single fact makes Magnus worthy of praise. On ICE’s webpage, it used the correct term “illegal aliens,” which will no doubt disappear when Magnus is sworn-in.

Magnus’ nomination is placed beside an article declaring the black community’s distrust of COVID vaccine is based on Tuskegee memories dating back to 1932. Inexplicably, the word black always rates being capitalized, while white remains lowercase.

 Ethnicity is the driving force behind every report and hiring decision at the “inclusive” Arizona Republic newspaper, surpassing accuracy and content. The dying and homeless daily is committed to its own demise.


AZ AG Brnovich in full blown campaign mode

April 14, 2021

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who has taken refuge behind a scruffy Belushi-like beard and moustache, has audaciously signaled he is in full blown campaign mode via a lengthy email detailing his accomplishments. Titled “The General’s Report, ” it begins with a clichéd reference to Spring:

“With April now upon us, it’s time to reflect on the Spring season and it’s classic themes of rejuvenation and renewal.”

Reading between the lines, term limited in 2022, he is moving on, omitting the other “R’ word “reinventing.”

From there he uses his office to blatantly recount his accomplishments, as he employs the royal “we,” while veering into unbridled self promotion in a lengthy email sent to Republicans. How he gained access to the list is anyone’s guess, but recipients are less than enthralled with having a public official inappropriately using his office as a free campaign website. Over a dozen and a half links of the office’s “accomplishments” and links to expansive coverage are an overreach that doesn’t pass the smell test. As a lawyer married to a U.S. District Judge, better judgment should have been used. Although Susan Brnovich was nominated to the federal bench by President Trump, she was initially appointed to the Maricopa County Superior Court by none other than far-left partisan Gov. Janet Napolitano, who rarely engaged in cross party appointments.

In an ingratiating mode, A.G. Mark Brnovich signs his email using the words, “With gratitude.” The obvious takeaway is Brnovich is signaling in advance his gratitude for your vote and a campaign donation…though he doesn’t indicate what office he’s eyeing. From his current perch the possibilities are whittled down to a few.


Target stores peddling anti-white, racist prayer book

April 10, 2021

In 2015, many customers stopped shopping in Target stores due to their newly installed transgender policies that included welcoming transgender bathrooms, where your young daughter might have the opportunity to share facilities with a biological man wearing a dress using a urinal in plain sight.

The  stores also made the corporate decision to un-gender, or as this press release noted, “phase out gender-based signage” in the toy aisles that previously had arrays of trucks and other toys preferred by boys as well as those carrying dolls for girls and bedding displays of sheets with cowboys and spacemen or Cinderella and flowers, intermingled instead of specifically designated “boys” or “girls,” for ease in shopping.

But there’s more…guaranteed to make reasonable people fume. Veronica Hays, writing for Media Research Center’s NewsBuster’s, exposes a gem of a devotional Target carries in its book section. The article is headlined, ‘Dear God, Help Me To Hate White People’: Target Sells Racist ‘Devotional.’ Read the complete exposé, including this featured prayer:

“Dear God, Please help me to hate White people. Or at least to want to hate them” is the depraved supplication offered to the Almighty in an entry of a recently published devotional.

On April 3, a woman picked up this prayer book while she was shopping at Target. The devotional book, titled “A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal” is number one on Amazon’s Christian Meditation Worship & Devotion section and is a New York Times bestseller.

In today’s world, this irrationality makes sense. Dennis Prager’s best selling books in the Rational Bible series are unworthy of mention on the New York Times best sellers list.


Joyous Easter wishes…

April 4, 2021

and the flawed advisability of mixing leftist politics and religion

On this holiday we are taking the unusual step of including a thought provoking editorial by Wayne Allyn Root, posted today on Townhall. Regardless of your religion, we recommend, “An Important Easter Sunday Message for the Catholic Church, Major League Baseball and Delta Airlines.” It could be any church and the thrust of the message would be the same, though this specifically exposes the duplicity of Father Milton Ryan, a priest at Holy Trinity Church in Dallas, Texas.


Intentionally deceptive coverage of Capitol Police officer’s murderer

April 3, 2021

Unreliable news coverage fosters false narrative of killer

The headlines tell a sly story, leaving out pertinent information. Following the murder of Capitol Police Officer William Evans, an 18-year-veteran of the force, who died Friday after a motorist rammed a barricade and lunged at him with a knife, and was finally killed, there was a unified pall over the coverage. Another officer was injured in the attack.

Once again, the facts didn’t fit the narrative the leftist media has nimbly honed into an art-form. White guys are gun crazed maniacs and “people of color” are victims of “systemic racism,” the latest in trendy marginalizing terms. Typical of the headlines broadcast by major news outlets was the bland, “Capitol threat suspect identified as 25-year-old Indiana man.” A former neighbor in an apartment complex where he previously lived described the killer as, “a nice, young, friendly guy.”

In fact the “nice Indiana man” was Noah Green, a member of the Nation of Islam and devotee of notorious hatemonger Louis Farrakhan and its anti-white theology.  He posted on his website as Noah X (replicating Malcolm X, another Nation of Islam zealot who advocated separatism rather than integration in the 1960s).  In January, Green applied to legally change his name to Noah Zaeem Muhammad. Such significant information took second stage to informing us that Green graduated from Christopher Newport University with a degree in finance and was a defensive back from Covington, Virginia, where he attended Alleghany High School.

In March, ten people were killed, including a police officer, when a gunman opened fire at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado. Though the mass murderer was Syrian born Muslim Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, VP Kamala Harris’ niece tweeted: “The Atlanta shooting was not even a week ago. Violent white men are the greatest terrorist threat to our country,” which she was forced to delete.

Just days ago, four people were killed, including a 9-year-old boy who died in his mother‘s arms as she tried to save him, when Aminadab Gaxiola Gonzalez opened fire in an office building courtyard in Los Angeles. Law enforcement officials said Gonzalez used a bike lock to hold the gates closed, requiring officers to bring bolt cutters to the scene to gain entry.

Until we respond to this intentionally skewed reporting by speaking up and not supporting it, it will continue and proliferate. Call the editors and station managers and let them know that you will watch, read or listen to other news sources and why.  Silence is acquiescence.


AZ Gov. Ducey lifts COVID restrictions as he looks ahead

March 27, 2021

Governor Doug Ducey issued Executive Order 2021-06 on March 25. After scrolling through 17 WHEREAS’ readers will finally get down to the NOW THEREFORE, officially certified with a gold seal, signed by Ducey and attested to by the secretary of state. According to COVID-19 Tracker, over 3 million vaccine doses have been administered so far in Arizona, with 14.8% fully vaccinated, and 26.7% of the population who have received at least one dose.

Bearing the effusive title, “New Phase of COVID-19 Mitigation…Business Guidelines Transition From Requirements to Recommendations,” the Executive Order officially provides Arizonans and businesses the ability to get back to living and reopening businesses. There’s always a backstory.

Ducey’s official bio omits his close association with John and Cindy Hensley McCain. When Ducey came to Arizona to attend ASU he worked at Hensley & Company, heiress Cindy’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship inherited from her father. A squish Republicrat, she endorsed and campaigned for Joe Biden for president in 2020.

Ever pragmatic Ducey was onstage with President Donald Trump at his Feb. 19, 2020 overflow pre-pandemic rally at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum, accepting the president’s accolades for securing the border. But within days, he forfeited his authority to Mexico as he halted the Sanctuary City ban.

It’s far worse to be stabbed in the back by someone masquerading as a Republican, than a candid Leftist.

Duplicitous Ducey is not going to go quietly into the dark night when his current term expires January 1, 2023. He’s got something up his sleeve which could well entail a self-serving party switch as he seeks his next gig. 

This post, “AZ Gov. Doug Ducey sells out to China,” details his groundwork, as he recently sold his 11,412 sq. ft. Paradise Valley golf course fairway home situated on 2.14 acres, at a discounted rate of $8,150,000. It includes a link to this World Tribune commentary by Joe Schaeffer, “Arizona Gov. Ducey to China: ‘Lots of opportunities’ to exploit ‘our defense industry, mining and ores.’” To call it enlightening would be the height of understatement.


Frail Biden officially abdicates power to Harris

March 25, 2021

Biden declares Harris “Speaks for me.” Who speaks for Americans?

There’s no point in tiptoeing around the unprecedented presidential calamity. It’s there for all the world, and certainly Americans, to see. The frail geriatric in the White House, scheduled to give his first press conference today, 64 days after his inauguration, is clearly unfit for the job. Elected after hiding out in his basement bunker, he has frequently stumbled, fallen and forgotten the names of his own defense secretary and other administration officials. On the campaign trail, he mistook his wife for his sister, and when trying to recite the Declaration of Independence, forgot the words, and said, “Go…oh, you know the thing.” Exhibiting signs of dementia, Biden has repeatedly referred to VP Kamala Harris as ’President Harris.”

Now the bumbling Biden who previously told the border invaders, “You should come,” is abdicating his responsibilities to contain the colossal surge of illegal aliens breaching our border, announcing he will put Kamala Harris in charge, saying, “When she speaks, she speaks for me.” Between Harris and recycled Obama administration lackey, spokesperson Jen Psaki, Biden has gotten away with being obscure and unavailable.

This announcement followed his laying blame for the current crisis at the feet of President Trump, who actually authorized the construction of a border wall and instituted policies to quell the flood of Central Americans and Mexican nationals, many of whom are unaccompanied minors traveling with dangerous members of drug cartels, during a devastatingly deadly global pandemic. Once they cross into the U.S., the holding facilities are so packed, they are given bus tickets and allowed to proceed and fan out across the United States. 

No matter what the Biden-Harris administration claims, it was the policies of President Trump that negatively impacted the invasion.

During Kamala Harris’ term as California‘s junior senator, GovTrack ranked her “Most politically left compared to All Senators” and “least likely to join bi-partisan bills.” That placed her to the left of acknowledged Socialist Bernie Sanders.


Media cover-up: Colo. supermarket killer was a Syrian-born Muslim

March 24, 2021

Colorado massacre spurs Dem’s renewed gun control efforts

Within hours of the Boulder, Colorado deadly supermarket shooting that killed ten people including a police officer who was the father of seven, democrats on Capitol Hill began using the tragedy to launch Second Amendments rights restrictions.

The shooter, described by the networks as “another white male” is actually Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, a Syrian-born Muslim. The leftwing local newspaper blandly headlines the mass murderer Alissa as “a 21-year-old Colorado man.” Mentioning that he is a Muslim from Syria doesn’t fit its narrative.

His family is already working on providing an alibi, saying Alissa is delusional and believed people were following or chasing him, which they claim may have contributed to the shootings. A former high school classmate said Alissa, then on the school’s wrestling team, told fellow teammates he was going to kill all of them, but, “no one believed him or did anything about it.”  Surely they must have heard about the Columbine High School massacre and the Aurora theater carnage, both of which occurred in Colorado.

In Washington, D.C., Sen. Chuck Schumer declared he was already committed to sending a universal background check bill to the U.S. Senate. Joe Biden is said to be considering signing another executive action, that restricts the rights of law abiding gun owners — bypassing congress. So desperate are they to curtailing our constitutional freedoms, they could run the two items concurrently.

For a memory jogger, check out this 2012 SRAZ post  titled, “Them Dem Hypocrites,” which comes complete with photos of leading Second Amendment restrictionists and their guns. Chuck Schumer is featured. Barack Obama is pictured with his rifle in the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

When she was Barack Obama’s Homeland Security chief, Janet Napolitano the far-left former Arizona governor, issued a scathing Department of Homeland Security report identifying American returning military vets as  “Right-wing extremists” who pose national security threats. Napolitano claimed, “Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists.”  It’s still available and can be read under the link


Kamala Harris’ takeover of WH verified by unprecedented language mandate

March 23, 2021

Incrementalism replaced by bold assertion

When Slo-Joe Biden recently referred to VP Kamala Harris as “President Harris,” it was more accurate than a mere slip of the tongue. The latest evidence that the shift is beginning in earnest is the odd directive reported on “Outspoken” titled, “EXCLUSIVE To downplay Biden, White House directs all agencies to refer to ‘Biden-Harris Administration’ in official communications.” 

A leaked email from an employee of a federal government agency reveals the White House is shifting toward a communication strategy that elevates Vice President Kamala Harris in all official White House business.

The directive, the employee reports, emanated from a top White House communications team member and instructs all 15 executive agencies to refer to the Biden administration as the “Biden-Harris Administration.” Those departments include the following executive agencies: Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury, Veterans Affairs, and the U.S. Attorney General.

“Please be sure to reference the current administration as the ‘Biden-Harris Administration’ in official public communications,” the directive reads, with “Biden-Harris Administration” accented in bold. The White House twitter account is now using the same wording.

SRAZ was ahead of the announcement as evidenced by our blogroll “Categories” in which we began using the term Harris/Biden immediately following the January 20, 2021 inauguration, as it became increasingly clear that Biden was a momentary figurehead…suffering from mental and physical decline, as noted by former White House physician and current Texas Congressman, Ronny Jackson. After two full months in office, Biden has yet to hold a press conference in which he spontaneously engages with the accommodating press, he has no need to fear. His first one is scheduled for Thursday.

The White House has previously told the press corps it wanted questions submitted to Biden’s staff in advance. If they comply with that request on Thursday, it will be the most convincing evidence Americans need of the devious collusion between the media and the political left. They would never tolerate such behavior from any politician outside of the uniparty to which they all pay homage.*

Mesa AZ has charlatan Mayor John Giles leading the city

March 22, 2021

Appearing Sunday on CNN’s “Inside Politics,” Mesa Arizona’s Republican Mayor John Giles says that he has been “impressed so far” by the Biden administration’s handling of the border crisis. The Hill has the dialogue in print.

Either Giles isn’t paying attention, impresses easily or thinks halting construction of the border wall and allowing hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens to invade the USA is somehow beneficial — especially during the Coronavirus pandemic and as millions of Americans remain unemployed and new jobless claims are historically high. The Washington Examiner reports the Biden administration is opening another overflow facility to house illegals near the U.S.-Mexico border, where thousands of unaccompanied minors, facilitated by members of well-paid drug cartels, are continually breaching our sovereign border. Others, known as OTM and SIA, acronyms for illegal aliens who are ‘Other Than Mexican’ or ‘Special Interest Aliens’ are from places far removed from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico. U.S. Border Patrol agents have apprehended invaders from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia, Pakistan, and Yemen. Not only is this unacceptably dangerous, we are then on the hook for the costs to accommodate their basic needs, and educate their children, while the adults flood our depressed labor market, undercutting American wages. 

Mexico disallows the U.S. to send citizens from other countries back through Mexico. Under U.S. law, they’re entitled to a formal deportation hearing. The immigration service lacks beds to hold them, so the vast majority of OTMs are released from custody and asked to voluntarily return for their court date. Guess how that turns out.

This Breitbart headline says it all:Mesa, AZ Mayor Giles: ‘I’ve Been Impressed So Far’ with Biden Administration on Border Surge.”

The good people of Mesa who thought they were voting for a Republican and found they got a Biden admirer instead, should consider kicking this charlatan to the curb with a Constitutionally permissible recall. 

Mesa residents, who deserve better, can and should do it!
