Must see TV: AZ AG debate Sun. July 20, 5:30 pm

2014_AG_Debate_horne_Brnovich

This brief preview of “Politics Unplugged” gives a hint of the tone of the debate between conservative Attorney General Tom Horne and challenger, Mark Brnovich, recruited by establishment power brokers.  Sticking to his script, Brnovich talks about “allegations,” and continually talks over Attorney General Tom Horne.

In this TV 3 clip, Horne asks Brnovich, who has referred to himself as a “principled conservative,” why he “contributed to Pete Rios, the leading left-wing champion of illegal immigration, who actually had a bill to give licenses to illegals.” Brnovich refused to answer, saying “Tom doesn’t have anything else,“ and calling the charge “a red herring,” but never denying it. In fact, Brnovich was listed as a “top contributor” on this Project Vote Smart list.

Clumsily misgauging his audience, Brnovich touts the endorsement he received from Republicrat Gov. Jan Brewer —- which most conservatives would run from given her Medicaid Expansion —- falling in line with Obamacare, her veto of the mischaracterized SB 1062 Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and push for a statewide sales tax hike in the worst economy in decades.

Huppenthal’s tearful apology at news conference

June 26, 2014

“My actions need to bring honor…….”

John Huppenthal, Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction, broke down in tears as he apologized Wednesday for what he called “hurtful” comments posted anonymously on various blogs —- including Seeing Red AZ. Huppenthal, who has called parents who oppose the federally mandated Common Core education schemebarbarians,” was moved to tears as he repeated his earlier statement that his words didn’t reflect what he felt in his heart about either minorities or those who receive public assistance. This current situation is not the first time Huppenthal’s lack of judgment has attracted negative attention. Back in 2008, Chandler police recommended city prosecutors charge then-state Sen. Huppenthal (R Dist.20) with two misdemeanor counts of theft and cutting down a campaign sign critical of him. His actions included pulling out a sign and his confrontation with a 78-year-old Democrat activist on Election Day. She alleged Huppenthal grappled with her and snatched signs out of her hands.  The East Valley Tribune carried the entire story.


Newsmax TV makes it official: JD Hayworth onboard

June 25, 2014

Hayworth hosts AZ AG Tom Horne Thursday, June 26, 8:00 am

The Hill’s Judy Kurtz reports that former Rep. J.D. Hayworth is headed to the television airwaves.

The Arizona Republican has been named host of the news and talk show “America’s Forum” on the newly launched Newsmax TV.

The six-term congressman previously hosted a Phoenix-based conservative talk radio show but resigned in 2010 to make a failed Senate bid against Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).

Newsmax TV, which is geared toward baby boomers and is planning a hard launch this fall — says the weekday, three-hour show, will feature Hayworth, 55, in conversation with newsmakers and analysts. Newsmax Media CEO Christopher Ruddy praised Hayworth in a statement, saying he’s a “smart, informed, and passionate host who is not afraid to speak his mind.” Hayworth already hosts an online show for the conservative media outlet.

“With his experience in Washington, D.C., we believe he can give our viewers unique insight into how Washington works,” Ruddy said.

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne will join Hayworth tomorrow, Thursday June 26, following the “Newsmax Now” update at 8:00 am, AZ Time.

“America’s Forum” runs weekdays from 6:00 – 9:00 am AZ. Time.

McCain toadies endorse ship-jumping Kate McGee

June 25, 2014

Just when it appears we’ve seen it all, raw political machinations continue to amaze. Kate Brophy McGee has sent out this announcement heralding what she terms her “key Phoenix City Council endorsements.”

The incumbent council members ooze with compliments for the Republicrat Legislative District 28 incumbent House member —- despite the fact that during her tenure McGee has made a habit of jumping ship from the Republican caucus to repeatedly vote with the Democrats.

If you’re wondering why council members Sal DiCiccio, Bill Gates, Jim Waring and Thelda Williams have all joined in slobbering effusive praise on McGee although there are three Republicans running in the district, look no further than the connective “Mc” before her surname.

 Pull back the curtain to reveal master puppeteer John McCain. His aides lobbied on behalf of Bill Gates initially getting appointed to his city council post, although the team was not so chummy back in 2009, when Thelda Williams voted against Gates’ appointment.

Waring served McCain as a former staffer, and in this Arizona Republic election questionnaire refers to one of McCain’s quotes as the best piece of political advice Waring says he’s ever received: “Use your judgment,” McCain told Waring. “If it’s no good, you won’t be in office very long, anyway.”

Not to be outdone, last November, councilman Sal DiCiccio, another former McCain staffer, followed his mentor’s lead, as seen here, Waring, getting the message, dutifully hopped on the endorsement bandwagon as well —- although none of the endorsements helped perennial candidate Martin Sepulveda, then running for state treasurer.

The cunning DiCiccio credits his teacher and mentor, liberal former U.S. Rep. Harry Mitchell, who required his students to attend Tempe City Council meetings, with originally planting the seeds of interest in politics.

Joining in these McCain approved united endorsements of McGee indicate obediently falling in (Mc)line overrides the conservative Republican ideology these council members purported to represent on the Phoenix City Council.

The knotty conundrum facing conservatives voters in LD 28 is that none of the three Republicrats running are worthy of support.

In memoriam: Sen. Tom Smith

May 29, 2014

Sen_Tom_Smith

Tom Smith was a very special man, who lived a meaningful life and influenced others by his fine example.

If  you were fortunate enough to have your path cross his, you knew you’d met someone of rare quality, strength of character and insight. He was a Marine, an officer and a gentleman, an educator —- and a statesman, in the truest meaning of the word.

At Tom’s request,  “please, please, no donations, sympathy cards or flowers. In lieu of this, take your spouse,  companion, friend,   neighbor, or whoever, for a night out and have one in honor of Tom.”

Further information  including time and place of the service to commemorate his life can be read here.


US Consul warns Americans of Mexico travel risks

May 27, 2014

“Credible threat” to safety and security in and around Nogales proves accurate with death of AZ man

The United States Consulate General has issued a strong emergency warning to U S. citizens: “due to credible threat information, the consulate urges US citizens to take highest precautions regarding personal safety in and around Nogales.”

The emergency message was issued this past Sunday, May 25.

“We strongly recommend that U.S. citizens traveling to or residing in Mexico enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program.  STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the U.S. embassy or nearest U.S. consulate to contact you in an emergency.  If you don’t have Internet access, enroll directly with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.” 

This sober U.S. Department of State Mexico Travel Warning advises U.S. citizens about the risk of traveling in Mexico due to threats to safety and security posed by Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) in the country.  U.S. citizens have been the target of violent crimes, such as homicide, gun battles, kidnapping, carjacking, and highway robbery by TCOs in various Mexican states. The number of U.S. citizens reported to the Department of State as murdered in Mexico was 71 in 2012 and 81 in 2013. 

Within hours after the U.S. Consulate’s warning of “credible threats” against U.S. citizens was issued, Mexican police found the body of an American citizen from Tucson murdered execution-style on a highway outside of Nogales.

The Arizona Daily Independent carries this informative report. The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic), the state’s largest newspaper, has ignored the emergency warnings.

STATEMENT BY SENATORS McCAIN AND FLAKE ON PRESIDENT SIGNING H.R. 862 TO CORRECT FOREST SERVICE MAPPING ERROR IN COCONINO COUNTY

Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) today released the following statement on the President signing H.R. 862 into law. This enables the Forest Service to correct a mapping error that accidentally places several homes of the Mountianare community on national forest land. The affected homeowners may not have been able to rebuild if the Slide Fire damaged their homes because, due to this error, they technically do not own the land. The new law allows the homeowners to purchase the underlying federal land directly from the Forest Service.

“With the Slide Fire still burning near Mountianare and surrounding homes, I’m grateful that the White House moved quickly to sign this bill into law,” said Senator McCain. “We now call on the Administration to work with Coconino County to implement this law swiftly so that it will provide the affected communities with the protection intended under this law.”

“Today’s signing puts the onus on the Forest Service to promptly implement this measure, closing the door on the unnecessary stress created by a half-century old surveying error,” said Senator Flake. “Likewise, Congress must now shift its focus to quickly addressing the catastrophic wildfire epidemic plaguing the West.”
