Harry Reid: Bundy, supporters, “domestic terrorists”

April 18, 2014

Although there is currently a lull, with federal snipers no longer in sight and cattle returned, the standoff in Nevada is not likely to go away anytime soon, as Sen. Harry Reid continues to lie and provoke. The back stories to this issue continue to emerge. Cliven Bundy is the last rancher in Clark County, where there were previously dozens. But the Bureau of Land Management has restrained the ranchers in southern Nevada by limiting the land on which their cattle can graze, reducing the number of cattle allowed on federal land, and charging grazing fees for the diminishing privilege. The effect of these restrictions has been to drive the ranchers out of business.

Cliven Bundy says the feds are using protection of the desert tortoise as ruse to force him and others from public land to make room for a dry lake solar zone.  This is an allegation that appears to hold water. 

Harry Reid and his lawyer son, Rory, a lobbyist for Chinese energy giant ENN Energy Group, are both involved in the company’s effort to build a $5 billion solar farm and panel manufacturing plant in the southern Nevada desert not far from the Bundy ranch.

Rory Reid was elected to the Clark County Board of County Commissioners where he served from 2003 to 2011.  The commission is considered by many to be one of the most powerful governmental bodies in the state of Nevada, since it has oversight over all unincorporated county areas. 

Another odd ‘coincidence’ is the fact that Harry Reid endorsed the judge, who originally ruled against Bundy, for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Yet one more bit of serendipity concerns the very recent confirmation of Neil Kornze, 35, as the new  Bureau of Land Management director. Kornze is a former senior policy advisor to Harry Reid. Just confirmed April 8, he is now in charge of the federal agency that oversees 264 million acres of public lands —- primarily in western states. 

And radical leftist Harry Reid, the most powerful man in the U.S. Senate, has the temerity to call Cliven Bundy “a domestic terrorist?”


Harry Reid lurking in BLM land grab of Bundy Ranch

Corrupt Democrat Sen. Harry Reid is exposed as working with the Chinese government to take land from the American family of ranchers who have worked on this Nevada site for over 140 years.

Alex Jones’ InfoWars has the very important and sordid story complete with documents, updates and videos. This government corruption affects us all. Read about it.

Hypocrisy at the AZ Republic? Who’d a guessed?

March 18, 2014

The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) is at it again. Recently the arrogant leftist radicals at the newspaper have taken to advising Republicans how to conduct themselves and win elections.

Sunday’s edition carried a chastising editorial titled, “Lawmakers, Listen to Voters.” This particular bit of drivel begins with the words, “Lawmakers, show some respect for voters.” The topic of such importance is directing $10 million a year of Lottery revenue to the state Game and Fish and Parks Departments. The money, approved over two dozen years ago by voters in more flush times was intended to protect habitats for species such as the 3-inch lowland leopard frog —- which according to this reportis still relatively secure in central Arizona.”

Since the makeup of the Arizona House and Senate is predominately Republican, the logical conclusion is the newspaper is railing against the GOP again.

There is no such outcry from the charlatans at the daily demanding the voices of voters be respected when the issues apply to people rather than frogs. Here are but a few of the hucksterisms from the Arizona Republic:

When RINO legislators (named here) joined the unified Dems in forcing through Obama’s reckless Medicaid Expansion —- an economically unsustainable government overreach, championed and signed by Jan Brewer —- while subverting the will of GOP voters and legislative districts statewide, there was no protest from the liberal Republic.

Popular and nationally copied SB 1070  “Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act,” was routinely maligned by the newspaper, which waged a daily and multi-pronged war against its author Senate President Russell Pearce. Redistricted into a predominantly Democrat legislative district, he ultimately lost his reelection bid. The Republic gloated.

SB 1062, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act was the subject of a misinformation campaign that intentionally mischaracterized the bill. The Republic led the charge.

The deceptive Open Elections/Open Government” or “Top 2 initiative aimed specifically at gutting Republican influence was championed by the daily disseminator of leftist propaganda. Ultimately, it was defeated 1,340,288 to 662,366. In this case the Republic was trampling on voters. “Respect” was nowhere to be seen.

In 2008, Arizona voters overwhelmingly passedProposition 102, the Marriage Protection Amendment,” defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman, by a vote of 56.3 – 43.7 percent. At the time, the crafty word-twisters at the Arizona Republic, defined the issue as the “Gay Marriage Ban.” The newspaper bashed the LDS Church’s influence but was mum on supporting the voice of the people.

When five Republican senators shamefully broke ranks and voted with Democrats to defeat SB 1310 a bill prohibiting the State Board of Education from applying Obama’s Common Core in Arizona, the newspaper said not a word against their actions.

John McComish, Adam Driggs, Steve Pierce, Michele Reagan and Bob Worsley, deceived their constituents —- who had every right to expect more than such traitorous actions.  Reagan is now running as a Republican for Secretary of State.

The far left Arizona Republic caterwauls when the issue is a lowlands leopard frog but either becomes mute or blithely spews venomous distortions as it targets Arizona families and conservatives.


You live in mediocre Arizona….because?

March 5, 2014

Left cites numerous studies attesting to  “mediocre” Arizona 

Those who read the local news might wonder what they’re doing here in Arizona. Monday’s  Page One headline tells us “Trauma common for kids in Ariz.” And the answer? According to the state‘s newspaper of record, “Several Arizona leaders say the data are the latest alarm bell indicating that the state should focus more resources on child welfare.”

“Resources” are your tax dollars that educrats never have in sufficient enough supply. 

The report is based on data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Kaiser Permanente, which looked at “adverse childhood experiences” nationwide. Results found 31.1 percent — nearly one-third — of Arizona children have dealt with two or more adverse childhood experiences, which is significantly higher than the national average of 22.6 percent.

In the same edition, the Business section headlines a report on another study —  the results of which conclude, ”Arizona is mediocre at luring corporate facilities.”

Other headlines in the newspaper?

“Arizona: Where mediocre education is good enough.”

“The Arizona Department of Transportation recently launched a study which indicates that 52 percent of Arizona’s roads are in poor or mediocre condition.

Student journalists at ASU’s Cronkite News have caught on to the tactic and report “Arizona city parks receive mediocre scores in study.”

No doubt it’s merely coincidental that the Leftwing Arizona Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) which claims to “stand up to powerful interests,” uses the same terminology, declaring, “Arizona receives mediocre grade for enforcement of job-creation measures in subsidy programs.”   

Though there are numerous such headlines testifying to Arizona’s abyssmal mediocrity, we provide this small but convincing sample which appears to indicate the lefties want the state to themselves.


AZ Republic’s hit pieces: Have you noticed a pattern?

March 4, 2014

Fishy_Arizona_Republic

Conservatives repeatedly slammed, mischaracterized

It’s no secret the Arizona Republic is a leftward-lurching, agendized newspaper.  Most often the struggling daily concentrates its energies on promoting legalization of America’s illegal invaders and normalizing homosexuality. But superseding all else is its cause célèbre — advancing the Democrat party and its candidates.  It is via that method, after all, that the other issues move forward.

A couple of weeks ago a multi-page, fabricated exposé of Republican political consultant Sean Noble was Page One material. If disinterested readers skipped past it, they saw all that was needed to get the daily’s nefarious point across.  Accompanying his mega-size photo was the sinister title, “The Dark Money Man: Sean Noble, Koch cash and Politics.” 

Suddenly Noble transmogrified into evil personified. Despite the Republic’s usage of a ProPublica cut and paste smear passing as a “report”— actually containing nothing of substance, Noble didn’t  appear less than his name implies. What was missing was such disclosure from the Republic and the omission that ProPublica is a recipient of a massive funding stream from billionaire leftist George Soros with tentacles to radical Media Matters. Yet ProPublica innocently calls itself “an independent, non-profit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest.”

Hogwash.

On Sunday it was Cathi Herrod’s turn to be eviscerated. Herrod is the president of the conservative Center for Arizona Policy which promotes and defends the foundational values of life, marriage, family, and religious liberty. She is also an effective lobbyist for those issues. That makes her ripe for a barrage of attacks by the daily. Her above the fold, Page One portrayal was titled, “A Political Force Behind the Scenes; Activist wields influence on Ariz. Laws.”

Let’s hope so.

The newspaper is now shining its high beam distortion campaign on state Rep. John Kavanagh, (LD-8).The conservative lawmaker has been the subject of articles, columns and even an editorial which actually employed the word “Yuck” throughout — regarding his participation in a roast of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Kavanagh’s participation — he was one of several “roasters” —  at the  private dinner wrapping up the Western Conservative Conference in Phoenix, is obviously the lynchpin.  The newspaper despises Arpaio. A banquet room full of his friends and admirers poking fun at him, would bring on teeth gnashing at the Republic. So now the well respected John Kavanagh is being savaged.

The leftist newspaper became emboldened after contributing to the bogus upheaval playing out in tandem with suspect redistricting that resulted in Russell Pearce’s loss of his district seat and the senate presidency. He was defeated by a one-termer, but that was of no consequence to the Republic.  They simply wanted Pearce, the architect of SB 1070, out.

Attorney General Tom Horne is now in the daily’s sights. While Superintendent of Public Instruction, he successfully fought the racist and anti-American MAS program in Tucson Unified School District. As Attorney General he has been a standout, but not one of their choosing. Conservative Horne urged the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse a Ninth Circuit ruling, arguing that Arizona has a right to deny Medicaid funding to abortion providers. Planned Parenthood is scheduled to receive more than $1.5 billion in Medicaid subsidies

What do Noble, Herrod, Arpaio, Kavanagh, Pearce and Horne all have in common? They are independent thinking, conservative Republicans, who don’t take their marching orders from the editorial board of the dying newspaper or the squishy party establishment elites, earning them attacks from the daily — which wants to see all of the top offices led by Democrats. When they endorse a Republican it will be a RINO or the weakest candidate, positioning the Democrat to win the general.

This isn’t rocket science.


WA Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon insults AZ as his team loses

December 23, 2013

Dimwitted Dem disses Arizona

An obtuse Washington state legislator said Sunday he was just engaging in some sports trash talk when he called the state of Arizona a “racist wasteland.”

Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon, a 27-year-old Democrat tweeted — and later deleted — his foolish comment after the Seattle Seahawks were hammered by the Arizona Cardinals. Fitzgibbon later said in an interview that people were taking his trash talk a little too seriously, the Seattle Times reports.

The Cardinals’ 17-10 win in Seattle kept their postseason hopes alive while shattering the Seahawks’ 14-game home win streak.

“Losing a football game sucks,” Fitzgibbon wrote. “Losing to a desert racist wasteland sucks a lot.”

In his disingenuous non-apology, Fitzgibbon said, “If folks are going to take that too seriously, then I’m sorry about that.” Fitzgibbon sponsored HB 1817, authorizing illegal alien students to receive taxpayer funded student aid.

The citizens of the state of Washington cough up $42,106 a year, plus $90 per diem throughout the session for this mouthy, amateurish, know-nothing. Prior to being elected in 2011, his previous work experience consisted of serving as a legislative aide.

Arizonans who know all too well the massive costs involved with providing benefits, health care and education to an illegal invasion of uneducated, criminally disposed foreign nationals, might want to give Joe Fitzgibbon a call. Explain the costly realities of life abutting an impoverished and crime riddled foreign country that disrespects our national sovereignty and laws. Our popular post “Lingo” provides further enlightenment.

His office number is: (360)786-7952.

Readying for amnesty DHS hires radical lawyers

December 8, 2013

Townhall’s Katie Pavlich has written a disturbing exposé regarding the radical Obama comrades brought on as new hires to oversee and manage immigration litigation as amnesty is front-burnered by the administration and its enthusiasts in the U.S. House and Senate.

We urge you to read “Department of Homeland Security Stacked With Pro-Amnesty Attorneys Ahead of Illegal Immigration Fight.”

Former DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams writing for  PJ Media has also done a masterful job researching the pro-amnesty and pro-asylum backgrounds of the new hires. In a country where normalcy reigned, these people would be revealed as reprehensible infiltrators intending to bring harm to the United States and criminally charged.

Michelle Malkin has written extensively about Thomas Perez, radical assistant attorney general for Obama’s DOJ Civil Rights Division and now Obama’s Secretary of Labor. (Senate confirmation vote here.)

Arizonans will remember that it was Perez who spearheaded the lawsuit against our state over our immigration enforcement measures and launched a three-year DOJ witch-hunt against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The vengeful investigation against Arpaio, the nation’s most outspoken local law enforcement official against illegal alien crime, was dropped without charges* by the DOJ in August of 2012. Malkin wrote that Perez was leading similar witch-hunts against police departments across the country based on leftwing junk science theories about racial “disparate impacts.”

To get a flavor of why Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is so admired, read his strong response to Perez’ intending-to-intimidate press conference December 15, 2011.

As expected, senate shamnesty gangsters John McCain, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham & Co. have folded like lawn chairs on Obamamnesty. Keep your eyes on our AZ House members and any attempts to sign on to what is being referred to as “piecemeal legislation,” but is in fact incremental steps toward full-blown amnesty. Rewarding criminality and demands with the great gift of American citizenship should not be on any of their agendas.

Conservatism: A few things to ponder

October 18, 2013

SRAZ commenter American Patriot recently wrote: “Are you aware that [Ted] Cruz’ father left Cuba in 1957 and only became a US citizen in 2005? That’s nearly 50 years later!! He obviously was in no great hurry to embrace America, but was content to profit from this great land. His timing is interesting since it coincided with his son Ted’s establishment of a political career.”

This fact is but one of many political oddities. One of the biggest took place right here in Arizona.

We often hear Republican Barry Goldwater referred to as “Mr. Conservative.” How many remember that “Mr. Conservative” actually endorsed a Berkeley-reared, radical Democrat over an actual conservative candidate in an Arizona Congressional race in 1992?

It’s true.

Goldwater came after Republican Doug Wead with both barrels, due to the fact that he was a political and religious conservative who Barry said was unacceptable since he “wore his religion on his sleeve.” So who did Barry Goldwater prefer AND endorse? Karan English, a liberal pro-abortion Democrat! Having served in the Arizona state legislature, she had an undeniable leftist track record, but that was of no consequence.

Yep. It turns out, Arizona’s Republican icon, “Mr. Conservative” wasn’t a conservative at all.

There is a silver lining to the story. Single-termer Karan English was unceremoniously ousted from office by none other than J.D. Hayworth — who it turns out, is more of a conservative than Barry ever was. Republican Hayworth ably represented Arizona in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1995 to 2007.

After Goldwater’s endorsement spirited English to victory, anti-Barry ire was so great, there was a movement to remove his name from AZ GOP headquarters. The story was big enough to gain coverage in the Chicago Tribune.

Abortion played a major role in this sham. In addition to favoring term-limits and vouchers, Doug Wead was adamantly pro-life. The Goldwater’s were not. Barry and his wife Peggy were fans of the notorious eugenics proponent Margaret Sanger, (video) whose desire to limit those she considered “human weeds” and “genetically inferior races,” undergirded Planned Parenthood’s abortion mission.

Goldwater even appeared in commercials in opposition of Proposition 110, The Preborn Child Protection Amendment, the intent of which was to limit abortions to saving the life of the mother or in cases of reported rape or incest. (Information relating to the proposition begins on page 61).

To this day, the Peggy Goldwater Award, named in honor of Barry’s wife of 51 years — the founder of Planned Parenthood of Central and Northern Arizona — is one of the group’s most prestigious awards. After Peggy’s death and his remarriage to Susan Wechsler, 32 years his junior, Barry’s views on social issues veered even further left. The Arizona senator died in 1998 at age 89.


Ted Cruz’ proud moment: John McCain “hates” him

September 24, 2013

Self-styled maverick John McCain, who knows a thing or two about grandstanding, outlandishly describes Republican senator Ted Cruz as a “grandstander.” An aide to the senior senator goes even further, saying “McCain (expletive) hates Cruz.”

Cruz, for his part, is “embarrassed to have supported McCain in 2008” — a sentiment many conservative Republicans can readily appreciate. McCain, a frequent visitor to the White House where he acknowledges strategizing with Obama, centers his ire on Cruz’ outspoken rejection of any spending bills that include funding for Obamacare.

Earlier this year, the senior senator took potshots at two of his senate colleagues, calling Cruz and Rand Paul “wacko birds.”

McCain’s name calling and salty speech — the refuge of the crass and ignorant — is nothing new. During his failed presidential bid, he reportedly even called his heiress wife Cindy despicable female slurs within earshot of reporters.

Then over the weekend, grandstanding McCain indignantly referred to the Los Angeles Dodgers’ jubilant jump into the Chase Field swimming pool as a “no-class act by a bunch of overpaid, immature, arrogant, spoiled brats!” The celebrating team had just clinched the NL West title in Phoenix.

McCain’s odd and derisive comment is nothing short of what Arizonans have come to expect. His less than merit-based wins in recent years have come at a high price. Running as if his life depended on it in 2010, he brutalized a worthy opponent, outspending his challenger by about 10 to one. McCain even resorted to lying during that senate campaign debate — unashamedly insulting the viewers. The architect of “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” correctly known as amnesty, actually declared, “By the way, I never was for amnesty,” 

No wonder he can’t comprehend the sheer joy of the Dodgers, who actually earned their victory.
