Political correctness skews rational thought

August 27, 2015

PC absurdities from Hollyweird, to sports and politics

Hopping aboard the leftwing politically correct train a few decades late, actress Julianne Moore has launched an online petition to change the name of the high school she attended in Falls Church, Virginia in the mid-1970’s. Moore now claims the school,  J.E.B. Stuart High, named for a Confederate general and Virginia native who was killed in battle during the Civil War, is a symbol of racism.

“No one should have to apologize for the name of the public high school you attended and the history of racism it represents,  as so many alumni of Stuart have felt the need to do our whole lives,” says Moore. a committed liberal and atheist. She suddenly wants the school renamed for Thurgood Marshall, who represented the NAACP in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education case before becoming a Supreme Court justice.

Her personal background is interesting. Moore, 54, was born into privilege in North Carolina.  Her father was an Army Colonel and a military judge. Her Scottish-born mother, an American educated psychologist, legally immigrated to the U.S. as a child in 1950.  In 2011, Moore chose an odd way to “honor” her newly deceased mother.  The actress, who has amassed great wealth from American movie goers,  renounced her American citizenship.

On Tuesday, ESPN suspended Curt Schilling, after the former Arizona Diamondbacks All-Star pitcher and current  baseball analyst for the network, posted a message on Twitter that drew a comparison between extremist Muslims and Nazis. The tweet which he quickly deleted contained a picture of Hitler and stated, “It’s said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?” Schilling added: “The math is staggering when you get to true #’s.”

It turns out comparisons of mass murderers is politically incorrect. Who knew?

“Curt’s tweet was completely unacceptable, and in no way represents our company’s perspective,” said ESPN in a statement. “We made that point very strongly to Curt and have removed him from his current Little League assignment pending further consideration.” Schilling also serves as an analyst for the network’s Sunday Night Baseball.

Schilling rushed to apologize: “I understand and accept my suspension. 100% my fault. Bad choices have bad consequences and this was a bad decision in every way on my part.”

Apparently mass beheadings — some committed by young boys encouraged by their terrorist fathers, child rapes and burning caged men alive for the cameras works for ESPN.

Democrat presidential aspirant Martin O’Malley actually apologized for saying “Black lives matter,” and adding, “white lives matter, all lives matter.” The former Maryland governor appeared with fellow candidate, self-described Democratic Socialist  Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT), and were shouted off the stage by radicals at the July Netroots Nation conference in Phoenix, for having the temerity to include all lives as having relevance. The extremists in the Black Lives Matter movement do not tolerate expanding the lives that matter beyond their own.

These  politically correct contrivances are reminiscent of Winston Smith, the protagonist in George Orwell’s best seller “1984.” Smith was employed as a clerk in the government’s Ministry of Truth Records Department. His job was to rewrite historical documents to align with the constantly changing current political deception. Newspeak, a reduced language became the tool to limit free thought and concepts posing a threat to the totalitarian regime.  Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct was classified as “thought crime,” “crime think,” or “doublethink.”

The mind control and group think described in the fictional “1984” is in full bloom in 2015.

City of Phoenix election results – 2015

August 25, 2015

We’ve got what you’re looking for

Today, Tuesday, August 25, 2015, was Election Day in the City of Phoenix. Staggered council seats and Mayor‘s race are being decided along with Propositions 101, 102, 103 and 104. Council members in Districts 1 (Thelda Williams), 3 (Bill Gates), and 7 (Michael Nowakowski), are all running unopposed. Only District 5 councilman Daniel Valenzuela, a Democrat and former firefighter union boss has a Republican challenger, Felix Garcia.

The election is virtually a closed shop contrivance, intentionally scheduled to coincide with late August scorching heat, rather than in conjunction with regularly scheduled fall elections which would produce greater voter turnout as well as cutting costs.  The intent of the scheme is to maintain the liberal status quo, union control and sanctuary city policies by suppressing a greater voter turnout.

The unofficial City of Phoenix election results can be viewed HERE.


Phx election today! Don’t let the left decide our fate

August 25, 2015

Judging by the large number of searches for information on the 2015 City of Phoenix election we‘ve received, we’re reposting a link to Phoenix Councilman urges “No” vote on ALL Props — which provides an overview of the ballot Propositions. We also direct your attention to Phoenix election: Vote NO on Props, YES for Brennan. Don’t be fooled by the $ multimillion campaign being waged in support of Prop. 104 by liberal political insiders, the Chamber of Commerce cadre and unionists who would benefit from the passage of this monstrosity.

Americans for Prosperity answers the questions and exposes the fallacies about Arizona ballot Proposition 104. SRAZ urges a NO vote against doubling the city transit tax over 35 years and spending over $31 billion on the unaccountable light rail expansion. Notice all of the professional campaign signs in support and the home made ones opposition?  That alone tells who has the money and benefits from the massive extension of the essentially rider-less light rail. The Arizona Free Enterprise Club recently released its study on the Phoenix Transit Plan Tax Hike, which debunks many of the claims made by the tax increase proponents.

Special polling places are open 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. today, Tuesday, Aug. 25 (Election Day). Any registered city voter residing in Phoenix can use any one of the 29 voting centers to cast a ballot. Additional questions? Call: 602-262-6837.

The unions and liberal special interests have voted their early ballots. We need to make getting our own voices heard a priority in this vitally important election. If you haven’t already voted, make it a point to do so today. There will be no do-overs.


Dems to enlist Pope on illegals, voter base expansion

August 24, 2015

Breitbart News carries an intriguing report on the less-than-devout Catholic Democrats in the U.S. Congress who are now looking to Pope Francis for aid in expanding their political base by increasing illegal immigration.

In a first, the Pope is scheduled to address Congress on Sept. 24. He intends to follow that by meeting with a group of Hispanic illegals. Liberal lawmakers hope his advocacy will inspire their colleagues and constituents.

Last year, Francis called the calculated flood of Central American children crossing the border into the U.S. a “humanitarian emergency.” In a June encyclical where he delved into the issue of climate change using the left‘s talking points, Francis cited the “tragic rise” of immigrants fleeing poverty.

The Pope is clearly opposed to capitalism. Earlier this year, using his closest adviser Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, as his spokesman, he issued this statement: “The ideology surrounding environmental issues is too tied to a capitalism that doesn’t want to stop ruining the environment because they don’t want to give up their profits.” 

In May we posted Pope Francis embraces leftist doctrines, in which we noted Francis sounded a lot like Karl Marx, as he called on governments to redistribute wealth and benefits to the poor to help curb an “economy of exclusion.” That was followed by  Pope Francis: “Global Political Authority” needed to tackle climate change. His provocative mastery of Marxist, anti-capitalist buzzwords is disturbing, with redistribution of wealth one of his frequent themes. Yet he does not deny himself the latest technology as he travels the globe like a jetsetter, frequently tweets and even takes selfies. Last year his tweet, “inequality is the root of social evil,” set off a heated debate in which he was  criticized for increasingly driving a wedge between conservatives and the Catholic Church. Francis previously blasted ‘trickle-down’ economics, a basic tenet of President Reagan’s economic policy as a “crude and naive” theory.

Francis clearly relishes promoting radical political positions. The Blaze reported Vatican Officially Recognizes ‘State of Palestine’ in New Treaty, observing he shifted to referring to PLO leader Mahmoud Abbas as the president of the “state of Palestine,” giving authenticity to those who are sworn to the annihilation of Israel.  

The Institute for Works of Religion, often referred to as the ‘Vatican Bank’ manages $8 billion of the church’s worldwide wealth, and investments, as well as 33,000 accounts for clergy and parishes, held in Euros. This is in addition to priceless High Renaissance art collections on display as well as in vast underground storage facilities.

Pope Francis has written, “Migrants and refugees are not pawns on the chessboard of humanity and should be accorded ‘their human dignity’ in the countries where they reside.”

Kevin Appleby, policy director on migration for the pro-amnesty U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in Washington, D.C., said: “What we do know from his record is that it’s an issue close to his heart” and “one of the issues central to his papacy.”

Rather than lecturing the United States, the time is ripe for this political Pope to put his mouth where his money is on his central issue and swing open the doors of Vatican City to accommodate and respect the “human dignity” of the hundreds of thousands of impoverished, uneducated and unwilling to assimilate, North African Muslims fleeing Libya in an effort to reach Italy. Their plight should also qualify as a “humanitarian emergency” demanding immediate action.


Thousands unite to protest Planned Parenthood

August 23, 2015

Nationwide protests against Planned Parenthood were held Saturday in the wake of the release of vile videos showing PP executives coolly haggling over prices in the calculated harvesting and sale of pre-born baby body parts. Pro-Life activists demonstrated at a reported 320 clinics across the country.

In Phoenix hundreds of protestors heard Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, U.S. Reps. Trent Franks and David Schweikert as well as AZ GOP Chairman Robert Graham speak out against the gruesome practices that are funded by tax dollars funneled to the abortion mills of Planned Parenthood by the federal government. Protests took place in several other Valley cities, including Chandler, Tempe and Glendale.

“We call on Congress to end federal funding for Planned Parenthood,” declared Montgomery.

CNS News, citing numbers from Planned Parenthood’s Annual Report, reports PP’s net revenue increased 5% to a total of $1.21 Billion in its organizational fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013. About 45% of that revenue —- $540.6 million —- was provided by taxpayer-funded government ‘health services” grants. Breitbart News’ “Planned Parenthood Annual Report: All About Abortions and Profits,” contains updated 2014 information. 

Although Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider, it cloaks itself as a women’s health care organization.

Seeing Red AZ posted “Planned Parenthood’s gruesome realities in mid-July, revealing the death industry’s deeply embedded roots in Arizona.

The Center for Medical Progress, which released the Planned Parenthood exposés, is to be commended for bringing the macabre truths of this monstrous industry to light via these videos.

It’s past time for the taxpayer-funded money spigot to be turned off.


Donald Trump draws massive crowd in Alabama

August 22, 2015

Trump’s Alabama rally moved to 40,000-seat stadium to accommodate the crowds

Speaking to supporters in Alabama Friday, Trump’s immigration policy including building a wall on the southern border, was endorsed by conservative Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions who told the crowd, “I’m really impressed with your plan. I know it will make a difference.”

Sessions is a respected voice for, and steadfast supporter of, American workers and national security.

The fact that Trump continues to surge in the presidential polls is the actual barometer of American frustration over the illegal invasion.
