Websites indicate US Reps, Sens main money streams

November 22, 2014

D.C. lobbyists do the heavy lifting, saving home town folks the back aches

Most of us have ended up on congressional mailing lists. Issues large and small provoke the incessant emails warning of dire consequences unless we immediately cough up cash. The requests hit breakneck speed preceding elections and the release of quarterly reports, where a competitive showing is crucial to incumbents seeking reelection and desirous of quashing upstart challengers.

But how much do they actually need us? Are the home folks of either party the backbone of incumbent’s revenue streams?

As dedicated observers of the political scene, our interest was piqued as we stumbled onto MapLight, a newly launched site that promotes itself as “Revealing Money’s Influence on Politics.” Check out the golden links along the top of the home page.

There is an abundance of fascinating information here which we have just begun to examine. 

Among the items that provided a chuckle was this dual list (House and Senate) showing who gets the most money from the agricultural chemicals companies.

Who’da guessed John McCain, who is legendary for spreading manure, would be a top recipient of the fertilizer industry?

Take a minute to read the Research Guide and look into the navigation tools —- especially those that show the correlation between donations to politicians and the corresponding favorable votes they cast. It’s all there on “Contributions By Vote.” 

Money Near Votes” shows all contributions given within days, weeks, or months of a vote, and the effect of that dough on voting yes or no.

You’ll want to check out any House or Senate member here and see who their major donors are and how much they give. Incumbency pays well, which is why it’s so difficult to oust entrenched Washington players.

Another intriguing site revealing the political money trail is the Sunlight Foundation.  Its home page, Political Party Time, has this compelling intro:

“From the early hours of the morning until late in the evening, politicians are breaking bread and sipping cocktails with donors. Sunlight’s Party Time lets you know who’s fundraising and where.”

Not surprisingly, a good portion of the fundraising takes place in Washington, D.C.

 


Brnovich shows wisdom in late release of McCain ad

November 2, 2014

Republican Attorney General candidate Mark Brnovich is in a tight race against liberal Democrat Felecia Rotellini. Election Day is Nov. 4, and in these waning days before final ballot counting begins, strategy matters.

That fact makes it all the more surprising to find that Brnovich has the none-too-popular and repeatedly censured John McCain cutting a radio ad for him. The good news is that a fair share of early ballots have already been turned in. Using Maricopa County as a barometer, nearly 50 percent of Republicans had returned their early ballots by noon Friday.

Check out the ad here.

Early voting began Oct. 9. Election Day, Tuesday Nov. 4, is only three days away.

 


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?


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.


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.

Two timing McCain jilts Hillary

Fickle McCain dumping Hillary for Lindsey

Was it just last year that the awestruck John McCain called Hillary Clinton a “rock star” and said he could support her presidential bid in 2016?

His deep affection for Clinton remained true, even in the face of the outrage he expressed over the four dead Americans at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya —- left unprotected by the State Department Clinton oversaw and the barrage of lies told in the cover-up effort.

Now we see the old crooner either forgot he was already serenading his liberal honey Hillary, or he suddenly discovered she isn’t quite as alluring as his submissive South Carolinian buddy Lindsey Graham.  Either way, the daily reports that “if U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham decides to run for president in 2016, he can count on the whole-hearted support of the 2008 Republican nominee, U.S. Sen. John McCain, his longtime ally on national security, immigration reform and other matters.”

“Of course,” McCain, said, explaining his change of heart. “I mean, we’re the closest of friends.”

Then the ever-vacillating “Maverick” said this about the wife of the only Democrat to carry the state of Arizona since Harry Truman in 1948: “Sen. Clinton has earned great respect for her tenacity and courage. The media often overlooked how compassionately she spoke to the concerns and dreams of millions of Americans, and she deserves a lot more appreciation than she sometimes received.”

“As the father of three daughters, I owe her a debt for inspiring millions of women to believe there is no opportunity in this great country beyond their reach. I am proud to call her my friend.”

Read more of his previous praiseful remarks in Top of the Ticket, the L.A. Times’ political commentary.
