Stephen Colbert instructs John McCain on Bible

December 7, 2014

Left-wing comedian teaches Arizona U.S. Senator 

Red Alert Politics reports (video included) that late night host Stephen Colbert had Sen. John McCain as a guest for one of the “The Colbert Report’s” final dozen shows, a distinction that McCain viewed as “scraping the bottom of the barrel.”

“No, we have saved the best for last, to paraphrase the Gospel,” Colbert said, before beginning to note that McCain was a “five-time U.S. Senator.”

But McCain cut him off, chuckling. “What chapter of the Bible is that?”

“You have saved the best for last?” Colbert asked incredulously. “It’s the marriage at Cana, when [Jesus] turns the water into the wine, the wine that he makes out of the water is passed around to the guests, and they say thou hast saved the best for last. I thought, ‘How are you going to appeal to Christian conservatives if you don’t know your Gospel,’ sir?”

From the Gospel according to John 2: 7 – 10:

Jesus told them, “Fill the jars with water.” So they filled them to the brim. Then he told them, “Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter.” So they took it. And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine, without knowing where it came from (although the servers who had drawn the water knew), the headwaiter called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves good wine first, and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one; but you have kept the good wine until now.”

 The Blaze’s Billy Hallowell gave a rundown of Colbert speaking openly about his Catholic faith earlier this year.

McCain, who was raised an Episcopalian and now identifies himself as Baptist, rarely discusses his faith. His pastor describes their relationship in this 2008 Bloomberg article.

John McCain has traveled a rocky road with the faith community, evidenced as he publicly denigrated evangelical leaders —-  most notably mocking television evangelists Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell as “agents of intolerance.'” In 2012, he chided the GOP toleave the issue of abortion alone” and “develop a bigger tent.”  


Back to the future with Heather Carter & Kate McGee

December 4, 2014

First the disclosure —- unnecessary to our readers, who know the scoop —-  since Heather Carter (LD-15) and Kate Brophy McGee (LD-28) have made a habit of jumping ship from the Republican caucus to repeatedly vote with the Democrats: Due to their close ties to the McCain cabal, we did not endorse either of them in the recent election.

That being said, we have to congratulate ourselves on our wisdom, just as the duo congratulate themselves by hosting an event at which they are the honorees.

No kidding. Who could make that up?

Our good judgment exercised in withholding endorsements is highlighted by the fact that these two —- who are entrusted to craft laws under which the citizens of the state have to abide —- don’t even know what year their self-congratulatory gala is to take place. Their email including the “Save the Date!” announcement was dated Wednesday, Dec. 3, 2014.

View the invitation here.

Ladies, January 2014 has come and gone. If you can’t get something as simple as the date right, how can you be trusted with law making?

The answer is obvious.


GOP honcho Bruce Ash imitates threatening street thug

November 13, 2014

McSally promoting Ash menacingly calls for “kneecapping” Wooten supporters

When a conservative site such as Townhall goes after a Republican National Committeeman, it’s worthy of notice. This article provides the shocking details of the events leading up to the thuggish not-so-veiled threats issued by Tucson businessman and longtime activist Bruce Ash —- a man who should know better. 

The Arizona Daily Independent fills in the rest of the story, detailing that Ash actually called for violence against leading Southern Arizona afternoon drive time radio show host, James T. Harris.

The bad blood goes back to this year’s primary election when conservative Tea Party candidate Chuck Wooten ran in U.S. Congressional District  2, challenging GOP establishment candidate Martha McSally. The seat is currently held by Democrat Ron Barber. McSally won the primary and was the recipient of nearly $10 million in RNC funding. The general is still too close to call and will likely result in a recount.

Just days ago when Ash was a guest on Emil Franzi’s radio program, Ash called for violence against popular radio host James T. Harris and USAF Lt. Col (ret) Thomas Norris in the event that McSally once again loses the CD2  race.

Joanne Moudy writing for Townhall notes it all began when Franzi falsely accusing both men of supporting Barber (only Norris did so) and then jumping into a tirade about a hypothetical situation. “By the way, if McSally loses by less than 200 votes, I hope someone goes over there and hangs up a sign about Harris and that phony light Colonel (Norris) who was over there endorsing Barber.” In his best imitation of a street thug, Ash then suggested, “How about kneecapping the both of them…, which may happen….”

Listen to Arizona’s RNC National Committeeman Bruce Ash’s ill-advised words here. (Time mark 9:19)

McSally, who previously lost a close race to Barber in 2012, is a retired Air Force Colonel who was the first American woman to command a fighter squadron. She can well defend herself —- and in a more appropriate manner. As a Lt. Col. she sued the Department of Defense  successfully challenging the military policy that required U.S. servicewomen stationed in Saudi Arabia to wear the degrading Islamic body-covering abaya when traveling off base in the country.

Wooten responded saying “Ash needs to resign immediately —- because in the process of shredding virtually everyone in their path, particularly conservative Republicans who do not agree with them, they launched into a tirade that went really badly, really quickly. He is typical of the political thugs who have infiltrated what used to be a great political party.”


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?


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.

ACLUers condone infanticide and prefer war on Christians to war on terrorists

This revealing interview session, conducted by Fox News’ Jesse Watters, is interspersed with much needed comic relief clips. It took place at the recent ACLU convention in Princeton, New Jersey.

Notice that one of the interviewees is a University of Chicago law professor. That’s the same school where Barack Obama allegedly was a  constitutional law professor.


Horrors! AZ Republic links Ducey to dreaded Koch brothers

October 3, 2014

In Wednesday’s post, “AZ Republic endorsements: “Close calls” favor known leftists,” exposing the fakery of the newspaper’s endorsements, we predicted the liberals on the editorial board would favor far left lobbyist Fred DuVal in the governor’s race.

Today, what’s left of the deteriorating newspaper, provides unequivocal evidence of what’s to come.

Given the political chicanery engaged in by the few adults still employed at the ailing newspaper, it was not much of a surprise to see today’s Page One,  above-of-the fold headline written by a duo of hatchet women, Yvonne Wingett Sanchez and Mary Jo Pitzl, who view every issue through deep blue lenses.

Their pathetic effort, filled with enough suspenseful adjectives to qualify it for a mystery thriller, aims to expose Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey’s ties to the Koch brothers. The wealthy conservatives businessmen have reached public enemy status with liberals since they legally donate to Republican candidates.

Hold onto your hats! Take a seat.

The headline blasts, “Ducey’s ties to Koch brothers becomes issue in governor race.” To substantiate the shock of this “issue,” the article quotes the far left weekly news magazine The Nation, which has lost money in all but three or four years in over a century of operation, sustained by a large group of devoted leftist donors called ‘Nation Associates.’

As expected, there is silence from the daily on Democrat recipients of the big bucks doled out by billionaires such as Second Amendment hating Michael Bloomberg, Marxist George Soros and Climate Change fanatic Tom Steyer.

OpenSecrets.org, the nonpartisan and verifiable archive of political contributions fills in the gaps you‘ll never find in the liberal news. Here is the 2014 overview of the top organizational contributors, with a color guide along the left side indicating a range of liberal to conservative. Koch Industries is in 34th place, on a list rife with unions and numerous  other radically liberalgroups. Only six are listed as Solidly Republican/Conservative

On MSNBC, hardly a conservative network, Joe Scarborough, in a must watch video segment exposes Big money this year starts with Harry Reid. He ponders why Harry Reid has spent so much time talking about the conservative Koch brothers when Democratic superPACs have outspent all others in 2014.

In fact, the Senate Majority PAC, run by allies of Harry Reid, is the superPAC that spent the most in 2014 — leading Scarborough to wonder aloud why Reid has spent so much time talking (notice the change of ties in the linked video) about the conservative Koch brothers.

We join his bewilderment, questioning why the Arizona Republic is focused on Ducey and the Koch‘s, rather than exposing the longtime ties of career political insider and D.C. ‘K Street’ lobbyist, Democrat contender Fred DuVal.
