Leftist word police have oversized role in manipulating news

November 18, 2021

‘Cowpeople’ and indigenous persons as boys, men, Indian tribes vanish

When the anti-Second Amendment radicals got steam behind them, parents could no longer buy little Johnny a cap gun and holster for his birthday. They vanished from toy shelves as America’s new morality police deemed them violent and unacceptable.  As reported in the Washington Times, kindergarteners have been suspended for pointing an index finger at a friend and saying, “bang-bang!” The only place the once ubiquitous toys can be found is on a “classic retro toys” site.

There is a definite double standard hovering just below the anti-gun outrage. When John Hinckley Jr. attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan who required surgery in 1981 to remove a bullet lodged in his lung, also shooting a police officer, secret service officer and permanently disabling Reagan’s press secretary, Hinckley was found not guilty by reason of insanity. Although institutionalized for psychiatric treatment, he was fortunate enough to find leftist U.S. District Judge Paul L. Friedman — nominated to the federal bench by Bill Clinton — who quietly let him leave for unaccompanied outings that lengthened over time to a full, unconditional release.

Imagine that scenario if the assassination attempt was made on a democrat president.

The local newspaper, which has deemed itself the new language police, has written a series of reports about Arizona’s Indian tribes, some of which were formerly identified as Hopi, Navajo, (now known as Dine), Papago (now Tohono O’odham), Zuni (now A:shiwi), Yavapai (four distinctly different names!) and others. These and all tribes within the United States are considered sovereign nations, whose members oddly can vote in our elections though there is no reciprocal action for non-tribal Americans.

With political correctness the order of the day, the local newspaper is obviously in a contortionist quandary. Accompanying an oversize front page photo is the headline using the loathsome and politically incorrect word, “Indian,“ since the topic is the “Miss Indian Arizona pageant,” which has been in existence for 60 years. The larger type headline is, “Defying myth of ‘Indian Princess.” Immediately following that in today’s edition is a lengthy article headlined “Instilling pride,” which surprisingly was not about homosexuality, but proclaims, “a new festival in Tempe  elevating Arizona’s indigenous art.”

Navigating these conceived-to-separate words must have given the Arizona Republic’s executive editor Greg Burton a well deserved case of heartburn. Earlier this year we wrote, AZ newspaper bows at diversity altar, rejects diversity of thought.”Now would be  a good time to review it. Recent news reports identify perpetrators or victims of crime as, “the person,” rather than “the man or woman.”

Thanks to the Society of Professional Journalists, our language has undergone an outrageous manipulation intended to alter public opinion, which the first line of its preamble readily admits: “Members of the Society of Professional Journalists believe that public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy.“ Their idea of “enlightenment” can be found in these facts leading into the 2016 presidential election as POLITCO reported on a study revealing only 7 percent of reporters identify as Republican.

Wyoming GOP votes to cancel Liz Cheney as a Republican

November 17, 2021

Republicrat U.S. Representatives and Senators reap what they sow

Emulating the wisdom exhibited by Arizona’s elected state committeemen at the 2014 annual Statutory Meeting of the Arizona Republican Party, when 1,210 committeemen voted to censure then-Sen. John McCain, Wyoming’s GOP central committee has voted to no longer recognize Rep. Liz Cheney as a Republican. She is the lone U.S. Representative for the state’s at-large district.

There comes a time when bold moves are required to address treachery. Having a U.S. member of Congress who ran under the GOP banner to gain support and then show their leftist underbellies is worthy of contempt, which is exactly what Liz Cheney, like John McCain before her, deserves. Reacting to the humiliation that made the national news, vengeful McCain and his operatives attempted to purge conservative elected precinct committeemen (PCs) from the party’s leadership. He relied on funding supplied by out-of-state, high dollar donors, including Obama-supporting democrats, involved in the deceptively named, Alexandria, Virginia based, Arizona Grassroots Action PAC,* which raised nearly $300,000 to defeat the elected PCs, who are the backbone of the AZ GOP.

In May, a defiant Cheney was removed from her position as House GOP conference chair over her anti-Trump stance. Her parting words were, “I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.”  Wyoming Republicans have remembered those words.

Cheney, who voted for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, is deserving of whatever sanctions the Wyoming GOP lodges against her. Her spokesman, in attempting to defend her, referred to President Trump “as a dangerous and irrational man.”

Of Cheney he said, “She is bound by her oath to the Constitution. Sadly a portion of the Wyoming GOP leadership has abandoned that fundamental principle and instead allowed themselves to be held hostage to the lies of a “dangerous and irrational man.”

On the occasion of the Wyoming GOP’s canceling her as a Republican, Cheney used her paid political flack as a mouthpiece, rather than have the obnoxious quotes spew directly from her mouth, though she and her leftwing stance speak for themselves.

Who’s responsible for U.S. economic collapse? Thank Biden voters

November 16, 2021

Biden continues to wreck havoc on US as he signs $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill

Shoppers have been noticing gaps on grocery shelves where items such as crackers, cereal, canned tuna and soups were usually stocked, as panicky buyers stock up on staples amid food shortages. Mega packs of toilet paper, recently limited to one pack per customer, are once again missing from Costco. Stores are moving products around and altering shelving layouts to make it less obvious that there are shortages now accompanying the escalating prices. Some retailers are bold enough to put up signs indicating they are out of specific items.

Americans hear a lot about supply chain problems, which account for scarcities including appliances, tech items and even cars, though no one satisfactorily explains what the holdups are. Amid the chaos Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg blandly acknowledged, “There will be disruptions.”

We are told that Thanksgiving turkeys and Christmas gifts need to be purchased early because current stock will not be replaced before the holidays.

Gas and oil prices are soaring thanks to Joe Biden. Immediately after taking his oath of office, Biden signed an executive order to halt construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, intended to transport Canadian crude oil to the U.S. Biden cited the dem’s always reliable go-to climate-change crisis as the rationale. Not only was the action irrational, but it displaced over 11,000 American workers who are unable to find work in their trades. Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm acknowledged Americans will pay more to heat their homes this winter. We’ve already been witnessing the astronomical leaps at the service station gas pumps — with no end in sight.

Rest assured that radical letist Buttigieg has his priorities in order in the midst of the national supply chain crisis. He recently returned from a two-month taxpayer-paid paternity leave after he and ‘his husband’ adopted twins.

Arizona Republic admits it’s dying

November 15, 2021

The disseminator of leftist spew is making an offer that is so outrageous, it almost — but not quite — elicits sympathy for the failing,* Hillary Clinton endorsing newspaper.

This pathetic plea is copied exactly from its website:

$1 for 6 Months

Limited-Time Offer

Sale Ends Soon

Save 97%

We at SRAZ are writers, not mathematicians, but it doesn’t take an Einstein to figure out this is a final act of despair. True, most of their newly-unionized staff have been replaced by ASU Cronkite Journalism School students, happy to toil for a byline — using free Wi-Fi at McDonald’s, since there is no longer a bustling newsroom.

The desperation “offer” is sold as an “e-Edition, a digital replica of the print edition.” A pitiful attempt to lure readers is by offering, “Exclusive local sports reporting from USA TODAY.”

The once well-regarded, conservative newspaper, which actually carried an Op-Ed page was previously owned by Eugene and Nina Pulliam.  At its inception in 1890 it was originally named The Arizona Republican, but with its increasingly radical leftist tilt, those facts are all but lost. Now there is only a single opinion, which is venomously anti-Trump, rabidly Republican-hating and absurdly Biden-supporting. It is also bent on reconfiguring the United States by advocating for an open southern border and supporting Biden’s plan to gift illegal invaders who claim they encountered hardship while violating our sovereign border $450,000 per person. This is a single-focused contrivance to incentivize more illegal alien crossers, who will morph into democrat voters, which is, of course, the basis of the preposterous scheme.

Poynter, a media research organization, exposed a “series of cuts and employee “unpaid time off, implemented by Gannett last March.

On January 1, 2019 we reported on the dire shape the local newspaper found itself confronting in, “AZ Republic: homeless vagrant on borrowed time.” By its feeble attempt to lure potential readers into its dilapidated web, it has acknowledged the truth. On Labor Day it did the unthinkable for a newspaper and cancelled home delivery in order “to give its employees the day off to celebrate the holiday with their families.” Seriously,

Biden’s recent polling: Worse than abysmal

November 14, 2021

Real Clear Politics’ polling aggregator uniquely has its finger on America’s political pulse as it reviews all the major surveys on various issues this past week.

In simplifying the polls for our readers, we’ll take you directly to the topics:

President Biden Job Approval – Economy: Approve 38.7 / Disapprove 53.9

President Biden Job Approval – Immigration;  Approve 29.4 / Disapprove 57.9

President Biden Job Approval – Foreign Policy: Approve 31.1 / Disapprove 52.7

Pulic Approval of President Biden’s Handling of the Coronavirus: Approve 47.2 /Disapprove 47.1

Direction of Country: Right Direction 29.6 / Wrong Tract 62.3

On Saturday, Nov. 13, 2021 The Des Moines Register conducted a poll in Iowa, long considered a political bellwether state…one that historically supports the ultimate winner. Former President Trump led Joe Biden by double digits.

Biden’s national and international bungling, wild spending and the economic disasters he has overseen have not escaped the notice of congressional and state office holding democrats who fear repercussions at the Nov. 8, 2022 midterm elections.

All 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and 34 of the 100 seats in the Senate will be contested. Ballotpedia provides this list of current Arizona office holders and the dates when their terms expire. It’s essential we regain a Republican majority. Responsible Arizona voters will have the opportunity to replace extreme leftist democrat Mark Kelly in the 2022 election. Senate terms are six years, ample time to do insurmountable damage. Kelly has received funding from Socialist billionaire George Soros, a One-Worlder who disdains national borders.

Second Amendment supporters should be aware Kelly heads a gun control money stream group he and his wife founded known as “Giffords PAC,” (originally Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC) specifically intended to elect Democrat gun control advocates to public office.

LA DA George Gascon releases murderer after only 6 yrs. of 50 yr. sentence

November 13, 2021

When Gascon campaigned on a “criminal justice reform” platform, law-abiding L.A. County residents mistakenly believed he was on their side, when it was criminals he was protecting

Arizonans remember leftist George Gascon all too well. Now the pro-criminal Los Angeles District Attorney, he began his career as a Mesa, Arizona police officer. After obtaining a law degree and becoming police chief, he departed for San Francisco where he replaced leftist D.A. Kamala Harris, then running for California Attorney General. Harris then became a short-time U.S. Senator co-sponsoring bills expanding gun control and “Medicare for All,” and is now a heartbeat away from the presidency as barely cognizant Biden’s incompetent VP.

In his last act as Mayor of San Francisco in 2011, California Gov. Gavin Newsom appointed Cuban-born, Soros-funded Gascon as San Francisco District Attorney. In 2009 SRAZ wrote, Sanctuary City San Francisco: A perfect fit for George Gascon.”

The meteoric career leaps of these two mediocre politicos — Gascon and Harris — are a testament to minority status coupled with a bonding to radicalism taking precedent over qualifications.

Leftist Billionaire George Soros also financially supported* Gascon’s candidacy, funding his latest legal effrontery, “LA County DA Gascon under fire as convicted killer set to be released 6 years into 50-year sentence,”can be read here on Los Angeles’ ABC 7.

In 2020 Soros was the top political donor spending $50 Million to elect leftist extremists, as reported by The New American. We were warned in 2016 when Politico reported, “George Soros’ quiet overhaul of the U.S. justice system.”  He interjected himself into the Maricopa County Attorney and Sheriff’s races backing leftist Diego Rodriguez (who lost to incumbent Bill Montgomery) and Paul Penzone who is now MC Sheriff after using Soros’ money to defeat popular Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who previously won an unprecedented six four-year terms.

A recall against Gascon, based on his lenient policies toward hardcore, violent criminals, releasing them from prison to reoffend, is underway. He is more attuned to keeping criminals happy than keeping law abiding citizens safe.

Fakery conceals true intent of south of the border “shoppers”

November 12, 2021

The shopping is not for goods but a new home with benefits

The word chutzpah is often defined as someone who murders his parents and throws himself on the mercy of the court, claiming the status of an orphan. Comedians use the term sarcastically. There was no such explanation when the far-left Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) headlined a front page report, “Asylum seekers protest in Nogales.”

First, be aware that the term “asylum seekers” refers to those who have entered the United States illegally and have no right to make demands, though that doesn’t stop them since they have advocates who facilitate their outrageously bold criminality. They decry as a “double standard” that the border has reopened for shopping and tourism but not to facilitate illegal access to the United States. And while Americans are finding mandatory restrictions keeping those who are not vaccinated against COVID from jobs, schools and military service, illegal aliens from numerous countries have no such restrictions. They are untested for the frequently deadly, communicable disease, put on buses and airplanes and transported to various locations throughout the USA.

Focus on the outrageous pomposity of illegal aliens protesting our border restrictions. In the news report they are blandly characterized as “shoppers,” but few intend to return to their homes, and are loathe to give their last names for fear of reprisals. Does that appear to be the posture of shoppers who intend to return to Central America or Mexico?

Numerous reports, one referring to a “migrant caravan” advancing in Mexico from Central America, vaguely estimated at “thousands,” is headed to our border. There is no outrage from reporter Diana Garcia, whose job it is to portray the invaders sympathetically — giving the fallacious words, “migrants” and “asylum seekers” a workout.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection website, which has provided invaluable information about the invasion, has been sanitized. The pages showing the high number of detentions of illegals is gone. A recent page is titled, CBP Agriculture Specialists Prevent Destructive Foreign Pests from Entering the United States.”

The “foreign pests” are not the illegal invaders but insects that come in on produce, such as imported bananas.  Apprehension numbers have vanished from the border patrol site. The border wall is being disassembled and President Trump’s successful polices overturned as “Let’s Go Brandon” has made border security non-existent while Americans struggle with supply chain shortages and unparalleled inflation that economists predict will last well into 2022.

Pre-election fact: WaPo Fact checker “too busy” to check facts

November 11, 2021

Leftist newspaper colludes with democrat party to influence votes

It’s a rare occurrence when SRAZ takes our readers directly to another news site in an opening paragraph, but this Fox News report by Joseph A. Wulfsohn, titled, Washington Post fact-checker admits he repeatedly punted McAuliffe’s COVID claims that got ‘Four Pinocchios‘“ rises to a must-read level…particularly since the purposely obscured dishonesty had the ability to affect a crucial election outcome.

Fortunately Virginia’s voters have had their fill of the now-former governor’s far-radical antics and replaced him with self-identified conservative Glenn Youngkin.

When your job is to check facts, there is nothing — short of a fire alarm going off in your office — that should intrude on checking facts, unless the incentive to withhold the truth was too great.  The Washington Post is well known as a politically left biased newspaper. That’s a given. What rises to the level of intolerable is the glibness with which “fact checker” Glenn Kessler described delaying running a fact-check on Terry McAuliffe for nearly a month because ‘we got busy with other stuff.’  The “other stuff” was promoting McAuliffe and his radical stances. Fortunately the contrivances didn’t work and Republican Glenn Youngkin won the election.  The closely watched race is viewed as a  predictor of things to come in 2022.

The Washington Post is known for editorially endorsing democrat presidential candidates and has never endorsed a Republican for president. In 2020, the far-left newspaper stayed true to its precedent and endorsed clearly confused Joe Biden.

In 2013 the WaPo announced it was sold to Amazon owner Jeff Bezos. Known as one of the world’s wealthiest men, Bezos stealthily purchased the generationally-owned newspaper for $250 million in cash — chump change to Bezos, who has a reputed net wealth of $201 billion as of Nov. 10, 2021 according to Bloomberg’s Billionaire Index which continually fluctuates.

Bezos did not make this Open Secrets list of top political donors, though he and his then-wife gave $2.5 million to a 2012 campaign to pass Referendum 74, to legalize same-sex marriage in Washington state. With Bezos’ help, it passed 53.7% to 46.3%.

New polls reveal Biden sinking as voter’s remorse surges

November 10, 2021

Joe Biden is a testament to buyer’s remorse as his polling number’s continue to plummet.  It must cause more than a touch of heartburn to see that democrats are as disappointed in the Harris/Biden administration as Republicans.

Nearly two-thirds of Americans — 64%— are opposed to Biden running for a second term in 2024 — including 28% of dems. VP Kamala Harris is even deeper in the political toilet with an approval rating standing at an abysmal 28% — worse than Biden’s. The poll shows that 51% disapprove of the job she’s doing.

Check out Real Clear Politics’ aggregated polling data. Then resolve to get involved in the Republican Party to take back the U.S. House and Senate and elect conservatives to statewide and national political offices. Recognizing and acting upon the discontent with the current administration is key to reclaiming our state and nation.

The recent Virginia governor’s victory and near-upset in blue New Jersey, prove it can be done. Despite the endorsement of the leftist Virginian-Pilot, the state’s largest circulation newspaper, and visits from Obama, Biden and Harris to shore up the voter base for incumbent democrat governor Terry McAuliffe, GOP political novice Glenn Youngkin wiped the floor with McAuliffe, eradicating leftist control of the state. The icing on the political cake was the election of Winsome Sears, making her Virginia’s first female elected Lieutenant Governor. She is also a black conservative. During the 2020 presidential election Biden carried the state by a 10% margin. 

This scenario can and will be replicated across the United States. It takes commitment. Arizona  will be holding key statewide elections in 2022. Get involved.
