McCain spaniel Jeff Flake colludes with Dems on Cuba

December 17, 2014

Aisle-crossing Flake sole Republican favoring lifting embargo on Communist isle

Credited as key players in brokering a secret prisoner exchange and working to normalizing relations with the oppressive Communist dictatorship of Cuba were Democrat Sens. Pat Leahy (D-Vt.) and Carl Levin (D-Mich.). U.S. Reps. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md) and Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) were also involved with negotiating the Cuba deal, at the urging of  the Obama White House..

The stand alone Republican in this mix is none other than Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake.

U.S. contractor Alan Gross was swapped for three Cubans jailed in the United States for spying. Gross worked on Van Hollen’s first campaign.

“When I visited Alan last month, he expressed the hope that his ordeal might somehow lead to positive changes between the United States and Cuba,” Flake enthused Wednesday. “With today’s significant and far-reaching announcements, I think it already has.”

Sen. Marco Rubio, (R-Fla), whose parents are Cuban immigrants, summed up Obama’s overreach in normalizing diplomatic relations with Cuba with this statement: “At a minimum Barack Obama is the worst negotiator we’ve had as president since at least Jimmy Carter, and maybe in the modern history of this country,” he said on Fox News. “The issue that I care about in Cuba is democracy. Nothing that is happening here will further that cause.”

Noting he was glad Gross would be reunited with his family, Rubio added that the exchange for three spies sets a “very dangerous precedent.” He said, “It puts a price on every American abroad. Governments now know that if they take an American hostage, they can get very significant concessions from the U.S.”              

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, was no happier.  “President Obama’s actions have vindicated the brutal behavior of the Cuban government.” Menendez said that exchanging Gross for “three convicted criminals sets an extremely dangerous precedent. It invites dictatorial and rogue regimes to use Americans serving overseas as bargaining chips.”  Read his contemptuous  statement. Menendez is also of Cuban heritage.

Obama earlier lifted some travel restrictions for Cuban-Americans and allowed former Cuban nationals living in the U.S. to send remittances (U.S. dollars) to family members still in Cuba.

The U.S. Department of State has had Cuba on the terror watch list since 1982.

Now Obama’s advisors have announced he will attend the Summit of the Americas in Panama —- a conference Cuban dictator/President Raul Castro will also attend.

The U.S. embargo against the Communist regime 90 miles from our shore, has been in effect since 1960.

…And then there were five R‘s: Franks, Gosar,  McSally, Salmon & Schweikert

If you’re ever tempted to think your vote doesn’t count, remember this razor thin Congressional District 2 race decided today after a recount and court battles.  Retired Air Force Colonel Martha McSally, the first female pilot to fly combat missions, emerged victorious from battle again, taking out Democrat U. S. Rep. Ron Barber by 167 votes in the nation’s final 2014 recount.

Bush 3? Conservatives will take a pass on dynasty

December 17, 2014

To no one’s surprise, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush announced on Tuesday he would “actively explore” a 2016 run for the White House.

We’ve written about him before. This post, “Another Bush? Thanks, Jeb, but we’ve had enough,” is from March 2013, when he was promoting his soft-on-illegal-immigration book, written to keep him relevant after leaving office.  It’s worth reviewing —- the post, not the book —- the hardcover of which can now be purchased  for less than a buck on Amazon, exactly what it’s worth.

Nothing has changed except Jeb’s lost 15 lbs, attempting to shape up before entering the fray. Just in time to welcome in the New Year, he’s promising to send out 250,000 email releases from his time as governor and gearing up to release an eBook on his governing style to strut his digital hipness.

The eBook and emails could well serve as a calculated distraction from Bush’s financesincluding overseas investments and his work for venture capital firms, which have recently come under scrutiny.

Well aware he holds numerous positions out of step with the conservative base of the Republican party, Bush acknowledges, “I am who I’ve been.” 

Yep. We’ve noticed. 

Who he’s “been” also includes Jeb Bush being a longtime and dedicated supporter of Common Core.

AZ Republic cheers the demise of E Pluribus Unum

December 15, 2014

“Out of many, one” transmogrifies into “out of one, many” as unity takes back seat to diversity

The Periódico de la República de Arizona’s (Arizona Republic‘s) dual agendas of amnesty for illegals and promotion of same-sex issues, have matured and given birth to a rowdy youngster named Diversity.

The celebration of diversity, tinged with the not-so-veiled threat of the coming minority status of today’s European-ethnic majority has stepped front and center, elbowing the longtime favorites to the sidelines.

Like the carnival midway it has become, the newspaper now has a new go-to attraction known as the “Changing Face of America.” Our nation’s motto, E Pluribus Unum —- Latin for “Out of many, one” —- is teetering on the brink of extinction, with diversity based separatism grabbing the limelight in this ongoing series.

Sunday’s five-page splash followed three teens “who have long had one date etched in their minds,” that being “Nov. 8, 2016, Election Day, and the day all three will turn 18.”

On Saturday, we were treated to a skew by reporter David Gonzalez, who noted he was wearing a dark blue suit, and described his speech to the United Nations on World Cities Day, dealing with….what else?  Increasing diversity, of course.  His report centered on being invited to speak to a conference whose goal is to “make sure American cities become socially inclusive as they become increasingly diverse.” His complaint is that “many immigrants remain invisible.”

Gonzalez, it turns out,  is quite the linguistic contortionist. In employing over 1900 words in his report, he used the word “immigration” 14 times, “immigrants” 20, “without legal status,” twice, “unauthorized migrants,” only once, “illegal” (“the debate over illegal immigration”) once, “undocumented” a single time, and “illegal alien” not at all.

Rather than finding strength uniting us as proud Americans in the manner of  previous generations of grateful legal immigrants, we are separating along ethnic fissures. Most disturbing is the fact that America’s twice-elected first black president, has presided over and exacerbated the deterioration of race relations, according to this Bloomberg Politics Poll.

Americans are witnessing the result of the invasion of our nation by a flood of people who came here in violation of our laws and national sovereignty —- now aided and abetted by Obama’s illegal executive amnesty and shameful congressional inertia. They do not value our history, language or way of life, which is clearly evident as they march through our streets making demands or walking over, spitting on and desecrating the American flag (video) during a patriotic event at the Arizona Capitol.

Rather than immigrating through the proper channels, and becoming part of the fabric of this great country, they have come here to access our legendary generosity and turn this country into a replica of the downtrodden and crime infested one they left. Should it be much of a surprise they are unwelcome?


Cuccinelli-led SCF holds Republicans accountable

December 14, 2014

Conservative group runs ads against amnesty schemers who run under GOP banner

Ken Cuccinelli, the former Attorney General of Virginia, is a bright light on the conservative horizon. He is also the new president of Senate Conservatives Fund, (SCF) the Number One conservative PAC in America.

The group pulls no punches, going after elected Republican imposters. who often collude with Democrats to the detriment of our country. We are on to the deceptively acclaimed term “bi-partisanship” the Dems and RINOs cheer, understanding all too well that we are being sold out —- before the new Republican Senate and House majorities take their oaths in January.

This is what SCF had to say about Arizona Senators Jeff Flake (whom it previously supported) and John McCain. When clicking on the link to McCain, pay particular attention to the descriptive paragraph above the video showing him dispensing his arrogant rudeness toward another senator. Note that McCain’s political designation is referred to as (RINO-Arizona)

On Friday the Senate Conservatives Action (SCA), the super PAC arm of the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF), released three new radio ads holding GOP House leaders accountable for voting to fund Barack Obama’s unlawful executive amnesty. These ads will air for one week in the home districts of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA). Click on each link to hear the powerful ads.

Over the past week, freedom-loving Americans from across the country pledged to donate over $117,000 to hold these leaders accountable if they voted to fund the president’s amnesty. The three radio ads carry out those pledges.

SCF President Ken Cuccinelli made the following statement:

“Americans asked Republican leaders to defund the president’s unlawful amnesty and pledged to run ads against them if they didn’t. Unfortunately, these leaders didn’t listen so now the grassroots are taking action to hold them accountable. These ads tell their voters what they’ve done and urge them to keep their promises.”

The bold actions of this organization deserve our support.


Establishment love-fest signals Ducey’s direction

December 12, 2014

Doug Ducey hearts McMentor Jon Kyl

The Dan Nowicki article, “Mentor Kyl helps Ducey gain footing,” is a front-pager in the daily. It’s that important. The exchange of worshipful praise between incoming Gov. Doug Ducey and his acknowledged “mentor” former U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl is downright blush worthy, akin to inadvertently witnessing a romantic tryst between two lovers.

But this was not inadvertent. In fact, it’s a bold advertisement of what to expect from the Ducey administration. Picture the intended message ricocheting statewide in eye-popping Day-Glo fluorescents.

For every enthusiastic accolade Ducey lobs in Kyl’s direction, there is a return serve. Kyl is quoted as saying he and Ducey think alike. “We’re both conservative,” Kyl fibbed. As for Ducey, he says he hopes to rely on Kyl long past his current stint chairing the governor-elect’s transition team.

Liberal pollster Bruce Merrill says he sees similarities between the two men. Merrill notes that Kyl’s position at the helm of Ducey’s transition team is just one sign of his continuing influence in Arizona politics and policy.

We’ve observed that very trait in 2012 watching in disbelief as Jon Kyl inveigled himself into precinct committeemen elections, as he attempted to oust conservatives from the political posts by sending out these mailers to households in a concerted effort to dilute the grassroots base.

Kyl worked diligently, devoting himself to selling his endorsed slates of RINOs to commandeer the precinct committeemen elections in contested precincts.  These elections are fundamental to the direction of the party since it is the elected precinct committeemen who then elect the intra-party county leadership. Some committeemen are elected as state committeemen and represent their districts at the statewide GOP statutory meeting, electing state party officers.

Reporter Nowicki, whose main assignment is covering John McCain, notes McCain’s admiration for Kyl, as he enthuses “He [Kyl] is respected by one and all, Republican and Democrat,” McCain said of his former Senate colleague. “I wish I were as good a public servant as Jon Kyl. I think he’s a wonderful man.”

There you have it. A warm triad, mutual admiration society—-  and one to watch like a hawk.


In Obamaspeak: a “good heart” = bowing to invaders

December 10, 2014

Addressing a town-hall meeting of illegals and their supporters in Nashville on Tuesday, Barack Obama boasted that his successor won’t take on what he considers the political risk that reversing his recent executive amnesty action would entail.

“It’s true a future administration might try to reverse some of our policies. But I’ll be honest with you -— the American people basically have a good heart and want to treat people fairly. So any future administration that tried to punish people for doing the right thing, I think, would not have the support of the American people,” Obama claimed. “It’s true, theoretically, a future administration could do something that I think would be very damaging. It’s not likely, politically, that they reverse everything we’ve done.”

Yet even his unconstitutional executive amnesty order normalizing at least five million foreign nationals who showed contempt for our laws and sovereignty is not enough to pacify the illegals. The Tennessean newspaper reports two people balanced on a big commercial trash can full of old tires, holding a fabric sign proclaiming in Spanish, “FALTAN 7 MILLONES,” which translates to 7 million left out.

The report describes one high school student, whose father came to the U.S. as a “migrant.” She was among the invited guests selected to hear Obama’s speech, and described her excitement at being handed the microphone to ask a question. Obama told her voting was a key way to make an impact on issues of higher education and immigration.

“I absolutely think that’s the case,” she agreed.

As far as committed leftist Obama is concerned, that’s actually what it’s all about.

Like an adolescent experiencing a first mad crush, the newspaper giddily gushes over Obama’s return trip to Nashville. Reporter Frank Daniels, III, could get a dose of reality by visiting the border state of Arizona, to gauge the actual costs associated with the realities of illegal immigration. Taxpayer funded benefits including education, medical care, nutritional handouts and the staggering costs related to the criminal justice system might cause him to rethink his genial glee. The green rolling farmlands of Tennessee are a far cry from Arizona’s desert abutting a foreign country that encourages its own citizens to illegally enter, as they drain public resources, spike our crime rate and take our jobs in a still tough economy.

Daniels might begin with considering the impact of sending remittances totaling $21.6 billion back to Mexico —- in 2013 alone —- to bolster its economy. Arizona’s porous border is also a portal for any and all comers, including OTM’s (Law enforcement term for ‘Other Than Mexicans‘) many, including radicalized Muslims, intending to bring harm to our nation.

Our “good heart” has been pushed to its limit.
