AZ Amnesty pushers McCain, Flake, engage in outrageous deception

September 10, 2014

Duo claim they want full-scale border prosecutions

In the face of terrorist threats against the United States, Arizona Sens. John McCain and his duplicitous doppelganger Jeff Flake are attempting to perpetrate the most outrageous act of deception.

Recent news has been rife with fearsome reports that the United State’s porous southern border is a portal allowing ease of access to terrorist groups that intend to bring destruction to American cities. Threats have been issued by militant Islamic jihadists, and warnings of impending devastating attacks have even been sent to American authorities by Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah.

Arizonans know all too well that the most enthusiastic supporters of amnesty and keeping our border accessible to hordes of illegal invaders have been the double-talking and bogus tricksters, John McCain and Jeff Flake.  

If your memory needs refreshing click on the links under their names to remember that both campaigned for the U.S. Senate as border hawks and immediately after election reverted to their amnesty stance, even forming the so-called bipartisan Gang of Eight, to push for amnesty and keep our country vulnerable.

We’ve covered the treacherous charlatans often.

Now the duplicitous duo are feigning concern that a federal program they claim has driven down incoming illegal aliens in the Yuma sector is being scaled back as the Obama administration plans to stop prosecuting illegals, focusing only on criminals and those who have previously been deported.  In a great display of showmanship, McCain and Flake have sent this letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder asking that he reconsider his actions —– actions that have been in effect since Aug. 18, 2011, as the administration bowed to intense pressure from amnesty advocates.

Flake is quoted in the stridently pro-open border Arizona Republic claiming there is almost “universal agreement” that the program known as Operation Streamline has stemmed the tide of illegal immigration in the Yuma Sector.

“Some people think it’s too harsh —- you’ll get some of the immigration activists who protested against it —- but I think everybody has recognized the effectiveness of it,” Flake said. “In Yuma, that’s been what everybody points to when they talk about policies that work. To just turn away from that is really troubling.”

What is actually “really troubling” is that these two deceivers think Arizona citizens are foolish enough to think they have changed their long-standing positions one iota. When it comes to border security, these men are loathsome liars, who are merely playing a CYA game in the face of terrorist threats and shamefully doing so the day before the thirteenth anniversary of September 11th.  


Obama sinks in new poll, American disapproval rises

September 10, 2014

As Barack Obama’s favorability rating plunges to all-time lows, the mainstream media has chosen to disregard the stark reality of his disapproval by the American people. A newly released Media Research Center study found that network evening newscasts have routinely buried negative poll results for Obama.

According to the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll, a mere 42 percent of respondents said they approved of Obama’s handling of his job as president, while 54 percent said they disapproved. Townhall provides additional polling numbers hereSeventy-one percent of those polled expressed support for air strikes against jihadist terrorists in Iraq, up from 45 percent on June 22, almost two weeks after ISIS seized control of Iraq’s second-largest city, Mosul, and swept across northern Iraq. 

As radical Islamic fundamentalists have begun systematically decapitating American non-combatant journalists and displaying the grisly videos, Americans expect a response from the president who has yet to identify these terrorists as Islamic jihadists.  

These terrorists pose a threat much closer to home as Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah warned recently, saying the West —- Europe and America —- will be jihadists’ next target unless “rapid” action is taken.

Obama will address the nation during prime time tonight (6:00pm AZ time/9:00pm ET) on his strategy for dealing with the ISIS threat. He was roundly criticized for his August 28, public admission that “we don’t have a strategy yet.” (video clip)

Last January, he glibly dismissed ISIS —- the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria —- as the “junior varsity” of terrorist organizations, a statement he only recently retracted.

Yet in the face of the ongoing barbarous butchery, Obama has steadfastly refused to use the words “jihadist” and “Islamist,” or “war on terror” to describe the very real threat posed by violent and extreme adherents of radical Islam. How can he confront and hope to defeat that which he refused to acknowledge?

Kyrsten Sinema deceitfully alters stance on military, vets

September 4, 2014

CD 9 voters have a choice: Vote for a 5th-generation military officer, Air Force pilot Lt Col Wendy Rogers (ret.) or radical leftist Kyrsten Sinema, now posing as a moderate

As slickly as radical leftist Kyrsten Sinema repackaged herself from a losing Green Party candidate  to a Democrat Arizona state legislator, she also attempted to conceal her Communist Party ideology. Sinema’s Cinco de Mayo and May Day greetings which each appeared in the Communist publication People’s Weekly World, can be seen in this post.

In 2007, while a member of the state legislature, Sinema was one of eight AZ Dems who introduced HB 2286, an appalling bill that imposed mandatory minimum jail sentences on members of the civilian Minutemen —- many former American service personnel —- trying to get a negligent U.S. government to simply enforce existing immigration laws by alerting authorities to the illegal invaders crossing our southern border. Using the same negative and insulting words as her close friend, Janet Napolitano who singled out America’s returning military personnel, Sinema referred to these patriotic citizens as “domestic terrorists.”

During her 2012 congressional campaign in the newly crafted Congressional District 9, Guy Benson wrote this revealing report for Townhall “Moderate” Arizona Democrat Has Deep Ties to Left-Wing Radicals, Obama White House. Although we strongly urge you to read it in its entirety, this snippet unmasks the pretender:

Beyond opposing America’s military response to the atrocities of 9/11 (the facts of which some of her associates call into question), Sinema has also promoted and appeared with radical characters, including convicted terrorist collaborator Lynne Stewart, and a self-described “pagan” and “witch” known as “Starhawk.”  While colluding with Starhawk to oppose US military efforts, Sinema wrote this email to her fellow activists in 2003, warning them against referring to any illegal activities in writing, lest the government be monitoring their communications.

Now in this ad, Sinema has re-crafted herself once again —- convincing the grieving parents of a young military vet who tragically committed suicide, that she is working in their behalf and in the interest of the military. 

In this press release the woman who holds the military in contempt, boasts of a Department of Defense contract award to a Tempe defense manufacturer, calling it a “vital investment in the safety of our military service members,” saying “they will provide our men and women in uniform with the best, most innovative technology produced right here in Arizona.”

Here charlatan Sinema hypocritically calls for action following the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General confirming gross mismanagement and delays in access to care in the Phoenix VA Health Care System.

Contrast Kyrsten Sinema emceeing this bizarre event calling for the “end of US Occupation of Iraq,” co-sponsored by the Progressive Democrats of America and crackpot 9-11 Truthers, showcasing Cindy Sheehan —- with Lt Col Wendy Rogers (ret.) who served America as one of the first 100 women pilots in the U.S. Air Force.

The clear choices presented in this election are unique in their simplicity. Send Sinema home.


How dare anyone call liberal Fred DuVal a liberal?

August 29, 2014

It’s no secret Gov. Jan Brewer has been a major disappointment to Arizona conservatives. She has unleashed venomous attacks making political foes of fellow Republicans who refused to surrender to her astronomically costly Medicaid expansion demands, and supported recruited challengers. Her defense of Common Core, Obama’s federal overreach into America’s education delivery system, usurping local control, has won her few fans, even as she renamed the scheme in an effort to dupe anxious parents. Her push for a sales tax increase in a dismal economy and her veto of a religious freedom bill caused many to question their jubilation when Brewer initially assumed the office after then-governor Janet Napolitano left mid-term to join the Obama administration.

In myriad ways Brewer was the Republican tailor-made for Democrats to embrace. That is, until she breached the line no Democrat wants to cross. Brewer has now incurred the wrath of the left by using the L-word, “liberal,” to describe lobbyist Fred DuVal, a career-long  leftist, now the Democrat nominee for governor.

Liberals despise being called liberal. In fact, they coined the word “progressive” to hide their liberalism behind. It sounds so Teddy Roosevelt-ish and forward thinking, don’cha know?

In this bizarre piece, Linda Valdez, editorial writer at the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) slams Brewer “for making things up about Fred Duval.” Zeroing in on a quote from Brewer in which she stated, “Fred is a liberal. He’s always been a liberal. He’s been brought up as a liberal,” Valdez did more than simply take exception. In typical liberal fashion, she contorts herself  into a pretzel twist, declaring DuVal’s father spent some time as a Republican before seeing what Valdez would view as ‘the light.’ She rants, hisses and harangues. One can almost see her stomping her feet.

Valdez is an unrepentant liberal, after all.

And who is liberal lobbyist Fred DuVal? He began his liberal career at age 24, managing liberal Bruce Babbitt‘s gubernatorial campaign, later working as Babbit’s senior aide. He did two stints with the Democrat National Committee concluding his final one as recently as 2011.  Liberal DuVal worked in the liberal Clinton White House, and was a reliable liberal Napolitano appointee on the AZ Board of Regents, where he never saw a tuition increase he didn’t support. As treasurer for the Democrat Governors Association he was fundraiser-in-chief for national liberal candidates.

It’s plain to see why Valdez, banking on crossover votes, wants to run from the L-word.


Huppenthal requests $1million to “embrace” illegal kids

August 22, 2014

John Huppenthal, the wildly erratic state superintendent of public instruction, is requesting the federal government pony up $1 million for educating the illegal alien children being housed in Arizona. They are among the tens of thousands who have flooded into the United States from Central America.

On Wednesday, Huppenthal sent this letter to Obama’s education secretary Arne Duncan asking for the financial aid, which he calculates at the rate of 202 students x $5,082 per student.

“We want to be positioned to do the best job we can to embrace those children,” he said during a press conference. “But, at the same time, we want to send a notice out that we expect to be compensated for those students.”

Huppenthal, who previously claimed conservative credentials as a candidate, has cozied up to Obama’s educrat point man Arne Duncan. This press release from Huppenthal was from chummier times as the alleged Republican trumpeted the fact that he was escorting liberal Duncan around the state.

Instead of doing the job he was elected to do, Huppenthal has spent a great deal of his taxpayer paid work time posting anonymous, insulting comments on blogs —- including Seeing Red AZ —- first denying his actions and then giving a tearful apologetic press conference. Watch the CBS TV 5 coverage in which he admitted his actions.

Now, rather than protecting Arizona’s Constitutional requirement for local control of our district schools, Huppenthal is shamefully pushing policies intended to cede control of every facet of our education system to federal bureaucrats as he promotes the disastrous federal overreach once known as Common Core. Hoping Arizona’s citizens wouldn’t notice, Huppenthal and Gov. Jan Brewer conspired to rename the unpopular federal overreach which suddenly morphed into “Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards.”

Conservative syndicated columnist, Michelle Malkin who has devoted the past two years to sounding the alarm on Common Core, supports Diane Douglas in Tuesday’s primary election. Read her endorsement.


Below-the-belt politics? Nathan Sproul lurks nearby

August 18, 2014

The side-by-side signs are head turners. Appearing on street corners around the Valley, they could be the source of whiplash for many driving by. They are also the source of disgust, since they exemplify politics at its worst.

So who would be behind the reprehensible signs slamming two Republican candidates for the office of state treasurer? The reasonable assumption would be a political rival of the opposing party. Then we remember, the upcoming election is the primary. The only challengers at this point are within the same political party.

Given the circumstances, it doesn’t take long for the name Nathan Sproul to emerge.

Sproul, the former executive director of both the Arizona Christian Coalition and the Arizona Republican Party, eventually opened Sproul & Associates, a political consulting firm. After the his name became toxic he switched to the more reputable sounding Lincoln Strategy Group, but the sliminess remained. Sproul is a pro-amnesty McCain ally who, among his other notorious schemes, has previously defended a tawdry independent expenditure campaign as a “battle for the heart and soul of the Republican party.”

In this latest despicable venture into the intra-party primary, Open Secrets reveals Sproul has teamed with Tucson auto dealer and high-dollar McCain donor and bundler, Jim Click, to form the high-minded sounding “Preserve America’s Future.” The two are listed as top contributors, with political operative Sproul running the show, and registered with the AZ Secretary of State’s Office on Aug. 7.

Nathan Sproul is listed on competing GOP treasurer candidate Hugh Hallman’s campaign website as one of his supporters, on a list that looks like a Who‘s Who in McCainville, with a few surprises thrown in. Connect the dots. As this post points out the link is always McCain.

Sproul is far more than merely a supporter. He actually recruited Hallman.

The daily covers the sleazy tactics Sproul has employed to aid Republicrat Hugh Hallman’s desperate campaign, using distortions and outright lies about both the exceptionally well-qualified Randy Pullen, whom we have endorsed, and Jeff DeWit. Neither man should be subjected to these squalid tactics.

Sproul is quoted as saying his committee will disclose its donors during the next reporting period. The next campaign finance reports are due Aug 22, just 4 days before the Aug. 26, Primary election.

Libertarian spoilers in key GOP senate races

August 15, 2014

As Americans who are paying attention are all too aware, it is imperative for the GOP to regain control of the U.S. Senate. With Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid playing hand-in-glove with a president who disregards congress as irrelevant and has repeatedly made good on his vow to use the power of executive actions to bypass the Republican-controlled House, the urgency of winning the midterm senatorial elections is undeniable 

But Republicans face a substantial problem, and it isn’t coming from the left. Game-playing Libertarians present a new wild card, with the potential of gumming up these vital elections by siphoning votes in crucial races from Republican candidates.

A key 2014 race is in New Hampshire, where Libertarian candidate Gardner Goldsmith is complicating Republican former senator Scott Brown’s bid to unseat Democrat incumbent Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. Brown trails Shaheen by 10 percentage points (42 – 52) with Goldsmith taking 2 points and 9 percent of voters still undecided, according to most recent polling.

Although Goldsmith’s 2 percentage points might appear too small to decide the race, politicos contend New Hampshire voters have a history of supporting independent candidates, which means that Goldsmith could take a hefty chunk of the undecided vote and decisively block any hope of a Brown victory.

North Carolina is also dealing with a Libertarian spoiler. Sean Haugh a perennial candidate, open-borders supporter and pizza delivery guy is attempting to throw ice water on Republican plans to defeat Sen. Kay Hagan, considered one of the most vulnerable Democrat incumbent senators.

This Aug. 7, 2014 Rasmussen survey shows Thom Tillis edging Hagan 45-to-40 percent, with Haugh taking 6 percent of the vote, though other polls show Haugh hitting 11 percent. The odds of the Libertarian winning are nil, but his ability to botch the election is formidable. Those odds increase should he qualify for the senatorial debate series which begin Sept. 3. 

The Libertarian Party goes to great lengths to mask its spoiler image, oddly claiming it has broader appeal.  “Gay marriage, less taxes, there’s overlap there,” Libertarian Party President Wes Benedict recently claimed in a Fox news report. “From a marketing perspective, we want to distinguish ourselves from Democrats and Republicans. But we do want to attract voters from both sides,” he admits.

This Washington Post July report provides an overview of Libertarian efforts to swing control of the U.S. Senate away from the GOP.

Here in Arizona, Sen. Jeff Flake and Attorney General challenger Mark Brnovich run as Republicans but have roots deep in Libertarian soil. Both have worked for the Libertarian — not Republican — Goldwater Institute.  It should come as no surprise that Flake supports Brnovich’s candidacy.
