McCain stumps for conservatives: Wrong man for the job

October 20, 2014

What’s amnesty pusher John McCain doing campaigning for GOP senate candidates who oppose his long held open border position —- from which he deviated only momentarily in order to get reelected

But there the duplicitous McCain is, hitting Southern states in support of senatorial candidates who are outspoken in their opposition to his dangerous amnesty scheme.

McCain, the deceptive Gang of Eight leader traveled to Louisiana to campaign for U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, MD.  In Georgia he appeared on behalf of David Perdue. North Carolinians got a glimpse of McCain as he promoted the candidacy of state House Speaker Thom Tillis.

 Not a single one of the senate candidates support McCain’s amnesty efforts.

This is conservative Cassidy’s campaign ad, showing no equivocation on the subject near and dear to McCain. The association could prove toxic. View the polling data.

Perdue touts his strong-on-border-security stance, urging “once and for all, forget amnesty.” Polling shows the race as a “toss-up.” McCain will do nothing more than muddy Georgia’s political waters, in a state Romney won by almost 8 points.

Tillis, in a tight race against incumbent Democrat Kay Hagan, might have a better chance of breaking away with someone less controversial than McCain hitting the campaign trail with him. Tillis’ issues page includes a segment on the border that begins with these words: “Our porous border threatens our national security and undermines our rule of law.”

He’s right. Then why stand with McCain?


AZ Republic explains endorsement of Republican

October 15, 2014

Some of the remaining readers of the far left daily newspaper have questioned the rationale for the endorsement of a Republican for governor of Arizona

A Republican, you say?

To respond to their dismay, the newspaper hauled out the opinions editor Robert Ledger to engage in a Q & A on this gut-wrenching topic causing more than a bit of angst among the liberals who still shell out too much for a daily infusion of leftist bias.

Taking time away from the relentless promotion of same-sex marriage and amnesty for America’s illegal invaders, the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) sends out its call for reshaping the state via its endorsements

It’s been a difficult dry period for liberals. All state offices and the majority of the 90 members of the state legislature are Republicans. The Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Treasurer, Superintendent of Public Instruction and Corporation Commissioners were entrusted to Republicans by the voters of the state of Arizona.  Maricopa County, the fourth most populous county in the United States, also boasts a lineup of Republican elected officials.

Now like the answer to a prayer of Biblical proportions, all of the statewide offices are up for grabs.  The editorial board is in a state of disbelief that such monumental good fortune is playing out before their very eyes. In response, they have endorsed Democrat retread Samuel Pearson “Terry” Goddard, III for Secretary of State —- an inconsequential post that has frequently been a direct ascension route to the governor’s office.

Felecia Rotellini, another liberal, is the newspaper’s pick for Attorney General. The Treasurer’s Office was won by default by the Republican, since Democrats —- self acknowledged bad money managers —- didn’t bother to field a candidate in that race.  In the race for Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction, the daily pushes Common Core proponent, David Garcia and they advise “splitting the ticket” for the two vacant seats on the Corporation Commission.

In congressional races with challengers, the newspaper endorses the marginal Ann Kirkpatrick (Dem. CD-1), and fawns over openly bisexual  self-proclaimed atheist and radical leftist Kyrsten Sinema (Dem. CD-9), calling her “a force of nature.” Hispanic Republican Gabby Saucedo Mercer, (CD-3) a splendid choice to take out extremist Raul Grijalva, goes unmentioned.

The editorial board recommends Republican Air Force Col. Martha McSally (ret.) over incumbent Democrat Rep. Ron Barber in CD-2. The newspaper compliments her “impressive grasp of foreign policy.”

So the daily’s support of Doug Ducey? 

It’s a no-brainer. Democrat Fred Duval is so problematic even the far left Arizona Republic realizes his potential to be a drag on the rest of the ticket. Besides, Ducey carries enough McEstablishment endorsers to make him palatable.


Leftist lies: Ebola, amnesty, ISIS terrorists on border

October 14, 2014

News from the U. S. Department of Defense regarding the deadly Ebola virus sparks major concerns as Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, makes grim predictions.  Kelly says the Ebola virus will not be contained in West Africa, and if infected people flee those countries and spread the disease to Central and South America, it could cause “mass migration into the United States” of those seeking treatment.

“If the disease gets to countries like Guatemala, Honduras or El Salvador, it will cause a panic and people will flee the region,” Gen. Kelly said last week in remarks to the National Defense University. “They will run away from Ebola, or if they suspect they are infected, they will try to get to the United States for treatment.

Yet Barack Obama assures us the chances of an Ebola outbreak in U.S. are extremely lo (video).

Juxtapose General Kelly’s concerns against the blasé attitude of California’s radical leftist senior Sen. Dianne Feinstein, 81.  She recently wrote this commentary, for the San Diego Union Tribune, in which she unequivocally declared the border secure, saying thoughts to the contrary were based on “false fears.”

“The bottom line” she asserts, “is that the southern border is more secure than ever.”  Feinstein assures readers that  time has come to pass “immigration reform,“ —- more accurately known as amnesty —- deceitfully claiming “the border security package included in the Senate-passed comprehensive immigration reform bill would further lock it down.” She offers empty assurances that a pending bill addresses “border security.”

It does not.

As a case in point, Judicial Watch’s Corruption Chronicles confirms the fact that 4 ISIS terrorists have been captured on the border as they recently entered Texas via Mexico. How many have passed through undetected is anyone’s guess.

Seeing Red AZ postedHezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns,” in 2011. It includes a link to a disturbing newscast from ABC 10 News in San Diego, which should have sounded the alarm, but didn’t.

Turkey, integral to Obama’s “broad coalition” is now disputing his claim it will let U.S. aircraft fly from an American base into Iraq and Syria to fight ISIS. The Muslim country’s Istanbul University has become a haven for the terrorist group.

Still, Obama, Feinstein, Harry Reid and liberals of their ilk who care more about expanding the Democrat base than the safety and security of America’s citizens, continue to be reelected. They are joined by long-in-the-tooth, establishment RINOs epitomized by John McCain, in D.C. over well over three decades, and “shortimer” Jeff Flake, first elected in 2000. Voting for amnesty supporters is voting against our country’s best interests. Think about that as you mark your ballots.


Bill Montgomery: Focus of daily’s sarcastic jab remains inert

October 13, 2014

Ten days ago, the Arizona Republic’s tabloid style insert ran an ironic cover report titled, “No VIP treatment” detailing the handling of arrested “celebrities” in Phoenix. It continues to a jump page which boldly declares, “No one is a celebrity in handcuffs.”

The list details the arrests of actors, a fitness guru, athletes and musicians. 

Missing is any mention of relatives of politicians.

Also MIA is the usually loquacious Maricopa County Attorney, Bill Montgomery.

After a lengthy and intense investigation —- even consulting with out-of-state experts, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office recommended criminal prosecution on 23 felony animal neglect charges against Todd and MaLeisa Hughes and their daughter and son-n-law Logan and Austin Flake. The Hughes’ were on vacation leaving the incompetent Flake’s as caretakers at the Green Acre kennel where nearly two dozen dogs died agonizing deaths, suffocating in the small, steamy utility room in which they were crammed together without food, water or cool air in the scorching heat of June 21.

Frustrated pet owners and the Valley community are weary of the stalling tactics, as County Attorney Bill Montgomery tries his damnedest to obfuscate, deflect and, yes,  figure out a method to ditch this political albatross altogether.

Bringing charges against Sen. Jeff Flake’s son, daughter-in-law and her parents, does not fit into Montgomery’s long-range career goals.

Meanwhile, the preventable deaths which the family initially lied about, occurred months ago and not a word has been heard on the subject from Montgomery since his insulting press conference where he noted that the dead dogs “weren’t 23 children,” after all.

On Sept. 10, Montgomery said it would take a “couple of weeks” for him to come to a decision regarding whether there was sufficient evidence to file charges in the case. Since he’s made numerous endorsements this election cycle, the fallout of his decision could have negative blowback on the hapless candidates he’s thrown his support behind. It would not be surprising if that consideration looms large as the motive for his inertia.

Montgomery has sent the investigative report back to the sheriff’s office. In the meantime, he’s hoping we’ve all developed cases of amnesia.

Few political observers will forget how the self-promoting Montgomery displayed his vile penchant for derision as he turned his back on his former benefactor Joe Arpaio, insulting the man who helped him fundraise during his campaign for Maricopa County Attorney. County Supervisor Don Stapley, hardly a paragon of virtue himself, had the presence of mind to tape record Montgomery as he was more than willing to insult the sheriff* while pimping himself for an interim appointment to the county attorney post that was never in the cards.  

It’s time for Bill Montgomery to proceed with this case. As much as he might wish otherwise, an amnesia epidemic has not overtaken the Valley.

Still going to the movies? THIS is what you support

October 12, 2014

It’s well known that Barack Obama’s “eloquent” delivery is reliant on a teleprompter.  Now we see that Oscar award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow is not so articulate without a script.

Recently, sans script, Paltrow evidenced speaking difficulties as she hosted a fundraiser benefiting the Democrat National Committee at her Brentwood/Mandeville Canyon estate. With Obama standing beside her, she attempted to introduce him to the crowd of several hundred supporters who paid up to $15,000 per plate for dinner in her back yard. Attendees included actors Julia Roberts and Bradley Whitford.

Overcome with passion at the prospect of having Obama so close, Paltrow gushed, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.” She added, “I am one of your biggest fans, if not the biggest, and have been since the inception of your campaign.”

Paltrow, 42, then displayed her abysmal ignorance of, and contempt for, the U.S. Constitution and separation of powers —- the basic tenant of our government —- by saying, “It would be wonderful if we were able to give this man all of the power that he needs to pass the things that he needs to pass.”

She noted she admired the president for his efforts on sustainable energy, as well as his push for equal pay legislation, which she deemed “very important to me as a working mother.” Forbes listed poor Paltrow’s 2014 earnings at $19 million as of June.

Celebrity gossip site TMZ blasted both Paltrow’s embarrassing foolishness and what it described as “the latest example of how demeaning it has become for Presidents to act like circus animals — performing for crowds that will feed them … in this case, feed them with money to line political coffers.”

Obama had three other such events scheduled for this weekend.


AZ GOP Hispanic outreach exposed as bogus

October 11, 2014

The shameful snub of conservative Gabriela Saucedo Mercer

This swell party invitation for high dollar swells willing to shell out up to $7,800 a head, raises more than a few questions. Three brand new Republican congressional candidates are hosting a swanky reception for House Speaker John Boehner at an undisclosed Paradise Valley address. In the style of a suspense-filled whodunit, once the price is paid, the site will be revealed.

A closer look shows Republicans Martha McSally, Wendy Rogers and Andy Tobin as co-hosts.

McSally is challenging Democrat Ron Barber in Congressional District 2. Wendy Rogers in CD 9  is mounting a campaign against radical leftist Kyrsten Sinema, and Andy Tobin is poised to take out Ann Kirkpatrick in CD 1.

Oddly missing from the lineup is the lone Latina, Gabriela Saucedo Mercer, running in Congressional District 3. Gabby is challenging the disreputable Raul Grijalva, whose roots are firmly planted in the most extreme factions of the Democrat party and is the willing recipient of Hamas-linked donations.

With her impeccable resume, knowledge of the issues and love for her adopted country as a naturalized American citizen since 1991, this eloquent and elegant woman should be the headliner. Instead she is mysteriously missing from the lineup.

Given that the Arizona GOP and the Republican National Committee go to great lengths to tout their Hispanic Outreach, even making sure diverse faces are in the mix at the National convention, omitting Gabby Saucedo Mercer is beyond blunderous.

The only plausible answer to this Sphinx-like riddle is that Gabby Saucedo Mercer is an unapologetic conservative. Take a look at her “Issues” page to see where she stands on the topics that matter. There is no equivocation.

In the world of Republican politics, Gabby Saucedo Mercer is pure gold. But the AZ GOP hierarchy is in the tight grasp of the McCain-led establishment, RINOs all.  A conservative candidate such as Gabby Saucedo Mercer gives them heartburn, so they ignore her. Since she won’t be splitting the jackpot after the Paradise Valley soiree, please help this outstanding woman as much as you can.  Time is short. There are ads to buy and mailers to send in order to get her message out. You can make a donation here without leaving home.  Do it. It matters.

Fred DuVal and his friends & Update

October 9, 2014

His choice of “acquaintances” speak to the core of the man

Saddam Hussein’s consultant threw a lavish farewell party for Arizona Democrat gubernatorial candidate Fred DuVal when DuVal left his post in the Clinton administration in 2001 to reestablish residency in Arizona, according to this Daily Caller report.

The report includes a substantiating link to the Washington Times, detailing the “impressive” double penthouse soiree on Cathedral Avenue NW where about 150 guests stopped by to wish career liberal lobbyist Fred DuVal well as he departed for Arizona.

With his move, DuVal was already setting in place the groundwork to run for governor of the state he had abandoned years earlier.

The party’s host, notorious fellow lobbyist and Washington insider, Edward J. von Kloberg III, greeted party guests while “donning black slippers embroidered with a devil holding a pitchfork,” the Washington Diplomat reported.

Von Kloberg, who dramatically committed suicide in 2005, served as a public affairs consultant for some of the world’s most despotic and tyrannical dictators including Saddam Hussein (Iraq), Mobutu Sese Seko (Congo), Samuel K. Doe (Liberia), Nicolae Ceausescu (Romanian genocidal butcher), among others. He was reportedly attempting to sign up North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il in 2001.

DuVal’s  campaign spokesman characterized their association an “acquaintanceship” and told the Daily Caller that criticism of their relationship is a “smear.”

The race was earlier said to be a dead heat. The Arizona Free Enterprise Club’s more recent poll results showing Ducey with a six-point lead can be seen here. Expect those numbers to soar in Ducey’s favor on the heels of the Daily Caller‘s revelation.

Update-tag

 

H/T to Night Owl for sending this Washington Times news link to the lavish farewell bash thrown for Fred DuVal by his close associate, the disreputable Edward J. von Kloberg III. With this substantiating evidence of the party DuVal claims not to remember, his memory might be jogged.

We include the link here.
