Hypocrisy, double standard exist when accused men are Dems

September 24, 2018

If the age of #MeToo has taught us anything, it is that any allegation made by a woman against a man is sacrosanct and unworthy of further examination. If the alleged incident occurred nearly forty years ago and the man protests that it never took place, you can be certain he is lying. If he protests too much, another “victim” will be sure to be found, to show there is a “pattern.” That no such allegations were previously made prior to the man, a constitutionalist, being nominated to U.S. Supreme Court by a Republican President of the United States, is simply coincidental.

In the case of Federal Judge Brett Kavanaugh, when the dung being thrown at him — despite having been vetted six previous times for other posts of importance — fails to stick, it’s time to dredge up more. Another “victim” has to be located and better still, a minority, to give the claims more ethnic panache.

As Democrats prance, posture and pontificate before the cameras, Republican leadership foolishly retreats. Where are the GOP senate members expressing outrage at this avalanche of politically-based negativity?  Where are the voices reminding the Democrats in the throes of feigned indignation about the allegations of rape made by multiple women against then-Arkansas Attorney General and later Governor? Untouchable, he went on to be president.

Desirous of power at all costs, Hillary staged a public relations intervention on behalf of her sexually exploitive and deceitful husband and the dirt was mysteriously swept away, including a 12-year affair with local reporter Gennifer Flowers begun when he was Governor of Arkansas. Later his problems escalated when he was found to be having an ongoing dalliance with a White House intern, substantiated by his DNA on her infamous blue dress. In the case of the intern Monica Lewinsky, he first denied and then admitted the relationship.

Hillary, who had previously attributed his  numerous liaisons and offenses tothe vast right-wing conspiracy,” couldn’t make the semen stains disappear. She was so used to dealing with his “indiscretions,” that her anger was directed at the truth being exposed rather than the offending part of her husband.

Then there was Ted Kennedy, extolled as the “Lion of the Senate.” When he took his nephews along on his drunken womanizing binges, he was just being a cool uncle. When his serial sexual exploits drove his formerly beautiful wife to alcoholism and an early death, that was just part of the Kennedy mystique.

After young senate staffer Mary Jo Kopechne died following Kennedy driving his car off the Chappaquiddick bridge after a party in 1969, it was due to the fact that he extracted himself and left her alone in the car to drown. He didn’t report the incident to the authorities. The car and her body were discovered the next morning and he finally came forward…sober and wearing a neck brace.

Kennedy pleaded guilty to “leaving the scene of an accident after causing injury.” He received a two-month suspended sentence, and went on, unscathed, to run for the presidency in 1980. More compelling than his loss to Jimmy Carter was his uncanny ability to shake off the taint of manslaughter.

Would either Bill Clinton or Ted Kennedy have been able to survive politically if they’d been Republicans? You know the answer.

Hiral Tipirneni, Kyrsten Sinema: Dems hide political party

September 23, 2018

The choice is clear: Vote for Republicans Lesko, McSally

The airwaves have been inundated with campaign ads, as senatorial and congressional candidates dominate Arizona’s political landscape.

Back for another bite at the Congressional District 8 apple is leftist Democrat Hiral Tipirneni, once again wearing medical scrubs and touting her credentials as an emergency room physician.  Conveniently omitted is the fact that she hasn’t practiced medicine since 2007, when she was successfully sued for malpractice. No longer practicing medicine, the dedicated liberal worked promoting Obamacare. The patient she maltreated is no longer above ground to vote against Tipirneni.

Now waging her second political campaign, she looks directly into the camera, with her ubiquitous, but unused stethoscope around her neck, and bizarrely declares she’s not a politician. Conspicuously missing from Tipirneni’s ads is the word, “Democrat.” On her issues page, she double talks border security, and says money for “the wall” (her sarcastic quotation marks) could be better spent. She favors expanding Medicare.

Though she’s pro-abortion, she doesn’t like the term, saying one is either “pro-choice or anti-choice,” turning objections to death sentences for the pre-born into a restriction of rights. According to Hiral Tipirneni, “gun violence” is a public health issue that should be “regulated like “seat belts, child car seats and airbags,” as she calls for “common sense gun safety reform.” Only the naive would trust her tinkering with the Second Amendment.

Residents of CD 8 (map) are fortunate to be represented by highly credentialed Republican Congresswoman Debbie Lesko. Her issues page is clear and geared toward empowering Arizona’s citizens rather than government expansion.  She is deserving of retention.

There are two candidates running for Arizona’s currently open senate seat. Former Sen. Jon Kyl was appointed to temporarily fill the vacancy following John McCain’s burial. After assessing his abysmal approval numbers, Jeff Flake opted not to run for reelection, creating this vacancy.

Former CD 2 U.S. Rep. Martha McSally won the Republican primary and is facing liberal chameleon Kyrsten Sinema, who has magically reconfigured herself.

Poised and polished, speaking softly cloaked in her newly crafted demeanor, there is no hint of the crude and coarse, self-identified bi-sexual, former Green Partyleaning Communist, candidate turned Democrat.  In her former incarnation, she used foul-mouthed slurs to describe women who choose to be stay-at-home Moms. Now blonde and slim, wearing fashionable glasses to make her appear studious, and tipping her head in a submissive pose, it’s clear the CD 9 U.S. Representative — an avowed atheist who refused to take her oath of office with her hand on the Bible — worked with a coach in her latest and most significant deceptive quest. She has the raw temerity to refer to herself as an “Independent” in her ads. The word Democrat is MIA.

Don’t be fooled by this new facade. The same radical lurks just below the surface.

Sinema’s the author of “Unite and Conquer” which details her techniques. The foreword was written by her onetime gal pal Janet Napolitano.


AZ US Rep. Paul Gosar’s siblings from hell

September 22, 2018

Congressman’s dysfunctional siblings campaign for liberal challenger

When it comes to having strong conservative values, there are few who meet the test as does Arizona’s 4th Congressional District U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar. The dentist who went to Washington in 2011 is well respected, not only among the Republicans in his district, but those throughout the state. Scroll down to the bottom of his bio link above to see the many high ratings he has earned.

Deplorably Paul Gosar has been set upon by 6 of his 10 siblings who are urging support of his Democrat challenger. They give new meaning to the “own kin” portion of these words of Jesus cited in Mark 6:4: “A prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.”

Among the 10 kids in his family there are 7 Democrats (six of whom appear in the ad shilling for his Democrat opponent), 2 Republicans and 1 Independent.

As adults, we know actual families are not what many of us saw portrayed in idyllic family sitcoms of the past. None of our mother cooked dinner wearing heels and pearl necklaces nor did we have dads who never appeared to have a real job outside of dispensing one-liner advice or sitting in the living room reading the newspaper until the family gathered around the dinner table when summoned by the perfectly coiffed and soft-spoken mom wearing a spotless ruffled apron over a lovely frock.

Still, it’s creepy that the out-of-state siblings of Congressman Gosar are so envious of his many successes that they have cut a campaign ad against him, dishonestly accusing him of “racism” for acknowledging there is an illegal immigration crisis in the United States that requires securing our border and enforcement of our laws.

In a spot ludicrously titled, “A family defends its honor,” Gosar’s left-wing siblings shamefully endorse their brother’s Democrat challenger.

SRAZ would usually provide a link to the commercial, but this cringe-worthy one showing a pathetically dysfunctional family offers nothing more than a guarantee of a skin crawling experience.

For those Arizonans fortunate enough to have Paul Gosar represent them, (map of the extensive district), we urge you to vote to retain this good and effective man. 


Video exposes reality of anti-Trump deep state

September 21, 2018

Boldly stating, “it’s impossible to fire federal employees,“ Stuart Karaffa, a State Department management and systems analyst, gloats about being part of “the resistance,” and using his position to facilitate his efforts. Previously he worked within the Department of Defense.

Longtime readers of SRAZ are familiar with James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas undercover investigative videos. He has exposed everything from election fraud to abortionists with M.D.s following their names negotiating the highest price for body parts of human babies they have killed. One, casually sipping wine over lunch, laughingly declares, she “wants a Lamborghini.”

This latest release focuses on the hidden face of the resistance inside the executive branch of our government. Wearing a suit and tie is where the pretense of respectability stops. Karaffa, a career “civil servant,” and others like him, are hard at work subverting our democracy. He is taped admitting he’s there to work not for American taxpaying citizens but the Democratic Socialists of America. This past year he was listed as the primary contact for the DSA’s Get-Out-The-Vote effort in Virginia, a violation of the Hatch Act, This radical goon’s swaggering braggadocio should be enough to show him that federal employees can, indeed — at the very least — be fired. 

Read the Project Veritas report,Deep State Unmasked: State Department on Hidden Cam, “Resist Everything,” “I Have Nothing to Lose.” The arrow in the lower left corner of the screen activates the video.


Flake “uncomfortable” voting for Kavanaugh

September 20, 2018

Jeff Flake is nearly out the senate door. Bottom-dragging 18% approval ratings convinced him not to risk the embarrassment of an unceremonious ouster. Still the showboater cannot bear to let the spotlight dim on him a moment too soon.  He preens and struts as he takes all too personally the words of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas:

“Do not go gentle into that good night…Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

Flake’s latest gambit is contorting himself into a deciding vote in the confirmation of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who has been vetted six times for key positions in the White House and on the federal bench. He is highly regarded as a man of unquestionable integrity and a brilliant jurist — serving since 2006 as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit

Tennessee Republicrat Bob Corker, also retiring from the senate, is playing the same contemptible game as Flake. With the slim GOP majority, their votes are needed to confirm.  In a similar manner to Trump-hating Flake, Corker demeaned Trump supporters as “cultish.” 

The bottom line is these two vengeful men have no constituencies to answer to and would like to go “into that good night, raging” — against Pres. Trump.  If a reputable man — Judge Kavanaugh — suddenly accused of an assault as a 17-year old, nearly 4 decades ago, is collateral damage, so be it. 

His accuser, a leftist professor, who never previously came forward, initially requested anonymity.  Now self-identified, she demurs on appearing before the senate to confront Kavanaugh. She has said her recollection of the alleged incident is foggy, not remembering where or when it took place.  Others dispute her newfound memory. She and her Democrat strategists are now demanding an FBI investigation be undertaken, though the supposed incident occurred 36 years ago and there is no evidence to investigate.

Know this: Judge Kavanaugh is not the issue.  This is a solely political contrivance to  keep the confirmation from taking place before the midterm elections. The Dems and their willing cohorts Flake and Corker are hoping for a Democrat majority that will deny the president his constitutional right to make Supreme Court appointments.

Although we imagine he’ll be hired by CNN or MSNBC as a GOP turncoat spewing his unique brand of hatred, if Flake returns to his gated community Mesa home, he should be shunned when he ventures out among the community’s mere mortals.


Moses Sanchez: New leadership in Phx Mayor’s race

September 19, 2018

2018 Phoenix Mayoral Debate excerpts

Candidates:

Kate Gallego, Democrat  — former City Council member — resigned to run for mayor. She’s a devout amnesty advocate. She is also expressed support of the outrageous idea of Phoenix raising its water rates to generate an additional $1.5 billion to make updates to the existing system.

You can tell a lot about a candidate by checking out their endorsement list. Gallego’s makes her even more unacceptable. Far leftists, unions, discredited liberals and abortion supporters are front and center. She even showcases the endorsement of her former husband, far left congressman Ruben Gallego, whom she divorced while she was expecting their first child.

Daniel Valenzuela, Democrat — former City Council member — resigned to run for mayor. Oddly, he says he’ll keep his full-time, 40-hour-a-week job as a Glendale firefighter if elected mayor of the nation’s sixth largest city. That’s a trick that rivals Houdini’s best efforts. Those city-funded pensions that are breaking the taxpayer’s backs, are a greater lure than being mayor. Valenzuela needs to make a choice. Though it seems impossible, his endorsements are even more chilling than Kate Gallego‘s.

Nicholas Sarwark, chairman of the Libertarian National Committee, is a former public defender, and runs a pre-owned auto business begun by his grandfather. His campaign “events” page has none listed, and shows him addressing a nearly empty room. Sarwark needs a course on the importance of optics.

Moses Sanchez, the only Republican in the race, scored with the best quote from the Channel 12 televised debate:

 “If you think the last decade of dysfunctional, failed leadership is the best thing we can do, you have other options. I believe we could do better. I believe we can create a city that puts her residents first. I believe it’s going to take an outsider who’s led in the military, in the classroom and in the boardroom. I believe you deserve better than what you’ve been getting,”

An Ahwatukee resident who rated enthusiastic coverage in the Ahwatukee Foothills News, Sanchez — who refreshingly is not a recycled council member — identifies himself as a Navy veteran, immigrant, educator and small business owner. His wife, Dr. Maria Manriquez, is a gynecologist who is the associate dean for clinical curricular affairs at the University of Arizona’s Phoenix medical school.

Jeff Flake outed as a “Traitor”

September 18, 2018

Arizona Republicans who have firsthand knowledge of the deceptive tactics employed by lame duck Sen. Jeff Flake, will find this post that uses the words,Jeff Flake, Traitor,” as its headline an irresistible must read.

John Hinderaker, one of several attorneys writing for Powerline employs some other choice adjectives for Republicrat Flake, along with describing what he rightly identifies as Flake’s “insane hatred for President Trump,” as the driving force behind his alignment with the Democrat members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Their objective is to scuttle Trump’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Describing Flake’s reprehensible antics as they relate to Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Hinderaker states, “Rarely have I witnessed anything so disgusting in the world of politics.”

Despite rightly declaring Flake “should be ashamed of himself,” the author clings to the hope that Jeff Flake would put his spitefulness in check between now and Thursday, when the Judiciary Committee vote is scheduled to be held.

We would caution him not to hold his breath.

Hinderaker calls Flake out as a never-Trumper and castigates him for elevating “his hatred for our president over every principle of politics and public policy.” He further notes. “Flake would rather subvert his own allegedly conservative principles than allow President Trump to exercise his constitutional powers as president. Words can hardly express how contemptible this is.”

“Allegedly conservative principles” are key words. As an example, there were no conservative principles displayed on the Gang of Eight amnesty scheme orchestrated by Jeff Flake and John McCain in which they colluded with leftists Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with reliable squishes Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Marco Rubio (R-FL). The concerted effort that would ultimately have increased the ranks of the Democrat Party, rendering Republicans to Whig Party status, was not an endeavor undertaken by principled conservatives.

The only line in his otherwise well-argued column that reveals Hinderaker as a Minnesotan rather than an Arizonan is including Flake among others for whom he “once had considerable respect.” Those of us who are not 1700 miles away have long known flaky Flake as a practiced liar, going back to his reneging on his original term limits pledge made when he ran for the U.S. House in 2000.  When called out on his deception, he displayed his notorious smirk and wisecracked, “I lied.” That was one of the few truths the McCain clone has told.
