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.


Like a moth to the flame…McCain drawn to warmth of publicity.

December 9, 2014

John McCain took to the Senate floor today, granted time by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and grateful for the publicity, “crossed party lines,” giving legitimacy to the Dems’ brazen political play.

How times and the players have changed. Last year, even former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, a Democrat, credited enhanced interrogation techniques —- including waterboarding of top Al Qaeda operatives in the wake of 9/11, as ultimately leading to the whereabouts and killing of the terrorist mastermind Osama Bin Laden, saving American lives.

One question Sen. McCain never addressed in his senate diatribe: Which is worse…water boarding or beheading?

 


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.”  


Alert to AZ GOP Precinct Committeemen

Arizona Freedom Alliance has posed this informative article regarding McOrchestrated efforts to unseat conservative precinct committeemen at Legislative District Organizational meetings throughout the state.

Take time to read it. Knowledge is power.


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.
