Why the disconnect in reporting Islamic terrorism?

July 23, 2016

Obama in a permanent dissociated state

Friday we watched in horror as news networks reported an assassin’s rampage through a shopping mall in Munich, Germany — slaughtering shoppers and specifically targeting teens at a McDonald‘s. At last report, 9 were dead and 27 wounded, some critically. He used an online ruse of free food to specifically lure the victims.

The same news sources were quick to point out — lacking any definitive evidence — that it was unlikely the cold-blooded murderer was an ISIS related terrorist. We were told “the motive remains unclear.”

Later the UK’s Daily Mail quoted witnesses as saying the gunman identified himself as German and screamed “Allahu Akbar” before the massacre — the two-word Allah praising calling card of the radical Muslim cowards who casually take the lives of innocent strangers with the intent of terrorizing Westerners. The 18-year-old assassin, who turned his weapon on himself,  held dual Iranian and German citizenship.

This is Barack Obama’s take (brief video) on the ISIS inspired violence that has invaded Western Europe and the United States at breakneck speed on a nearly daily basis.

In criminal cases defense attorneys representing those accused of heinous crimes have occasionally claimed the defendants were in a dissociated state when they committed their vicious acts. In a notorious trial in Phoenix predating O.J. Simpson’s, that defense was successfully used, when the murderer claimed to be sleepwalking as he repeatedly stabbed his wife to death.

Barack Obama’s disconnect when he says, “The world is less violent than it has ever been,” makes it clear he’s been sleepwalking through the past 8 years of his presidency, unable to utter the words “jihad” or “radical Muslim extremist,” in the face of ample evidence to the contrary.


Dan Saban: Would you like some syrup on your waffles?

July 22, 2016

Perennial candidate for sheriff is back  —  opportunistically party switching

After attempting to unseat Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio three times— in 2004, 2008, 2012 — with no success, politically slippery Dan Saban is giving it another try, using a new guise — this time as a white haired, white mustachioed Republican. When he ran in 2012, it was as a bottle brunette Democrat, even dying his mustache. Saban changes his hair color nearly as often as he switches political parties and changes his wives.

With no core values, he’s been all over the political map and has lost every previous race. Not only does he fail at challenging the sheriff politically, but Dan Saban has even sued him — and lost.

Now, however,  voters can rest assured Saban’s party allegiance is absolute.  How can they trust the ever vacillating political opportunist?  Simple. This time he’s got an elephant on his roadway campaign signs. Yeah, that should do it.

We posted Perpetual loser Saban takes swipe at Arpaio in 2012, illustrating Saban’s problems telling the truth — even during a taped legal deposition. The included videos tell more about Dan Saban than his deceptive campaign signs do.


Donald Trump accepts GOP nomination

July 21, 2016

Introduced by his daughter, Ivanka, on Thursday night and telling America, “I am your voice,” Donald Trump has “humbly and gratefully” accepted the Republican nomination for President of the United States.  The Trump / Pence ticket is already energizing Americans.  We will win in November.

 


Eric Trump: “My father is running for you!”

July 21, 2016

RNC HIGHLIGHT:

Donald Trump’s 32-year-old son Eric, took his turn at the podium at the Republican National Convention Wednesday night and gave this moving speech, which he wrote himself, about his father.

If you missed this marvelous speech, watch it here. If you saw this speech last night, watch it again. It will make you proud of our Republican nominee, who is not only a successful entrepreneur but has also raised an extraordinary family.

RNC LOWLIGHT:

 Ted Cruz humiliates himself and likely dooms any future political plans with his petulant refusal to endorse the Republican Party nominee Donald Trump after accepting an invitation to speak to the convention. Cruz, sounding a lot like a candidate gearing up for 2020, addressed the delegates with these words: “To those listening, please, don’t stay home in November, stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”

 Ted and Heidi Cruz were escorted out of the area to boos and calls of “Goldman Sachs!” a reference to Heidi Cruz’ longtime employment as an investment banker with a major player in what Cruz derided as the “Washington cartel” of bankers, lobbyists and major corporations. According to this March 24, 2015, USA Today article, Heidi Cruz joined Goldman in 2005 and ran its Houston wealth-management unit, which, according to the report, “handles portfolios for clients with an average net worth of $40 million.”

Cruz’ aspirations should be a lonely date with history. The remarkable rise of non-politician Donald Trump has not been without some bumps in the road. Yet he surged to the forefront in a crowed field of 17 GOP candidates, defying the negative predictions of political pundits.  He is the Republican nominee and his choice of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his Vice Presidential running mate has served to enhance the ticket.

AS IT SHOULD BE:

Ronald Reagan’s inherent elegance in joining with Gerald Ford in 1976 after his own defeat should have set a standard for Ted Cruz. Reagan, turned to Gerald Ford in unity, and stated,Mr. President, there is no substitute for victory.” (video) What a shame Ted Cruz didn’t get the message.

Standing to the left side of the screen beginning at 7:39 were House Minority Leader John Jacob Rhodes II and his wife Elizabeth. Rhodes, a conservative, Harvard educated lawyer and respected member of congress representing Arizona’s then-First Congressional District,  was part of a select group who met with Richard Nixon and encouraged him to resign the presidency in the wake of Watergate. In a then unforeseen set of circumstances Rhodes’ retirement set the stage for the political career of John McCain, who served one term in the U.S. House before being elected to the senate seat he is unable to graciously retire from after decades of veering further and further left.


Meluskey polls at 4% but willing to siphon votes to aid McCain

July 20, 2016

AZ U.S. Senate candidate Meluskey hides from GOP label

Modeling himself after John McCain, Alex Meluskey has novel ways of asking for campaign donations. After previously addressing email recipients with a boorish “Hey,” he derisively lectures potential donors, “it’s time we all have skin in the game.”  What Meluskey is actually saying is that his mainly self-funded campaign is running out of $team. According to the most recent FEC filings, 86.4% of his campaign has been self funded. Only 9% of his money comes from itemized individual contributions — a short list filled with relatives, retirees, and out-of-state donors. Operating expenditures are high — donors sparse.

Meluskey, obviously not generating the money necessary to run a formidable campaign, characterizes himself as a “conservative outsider.” He hits it out of the park with the outsider description, since he only registered as a Republican when he decided to run. Previously he was a PND — Party Not Designated. The descriptive term “Republican” is missing from his website and literature. Prior to gearing up for this race, he’s shown zero interest in the Republican Party.  Meluskey also plays fast and loose with the truth, distorting the record and photo images of Dr. Kelli Ward, as he pretentiously compares himself to Ronald Reagan.

This PPP survey of Arizona voters shows John McCain at “serious risk of losing the nomination,” polling at only 39% in the Republican primary field. He’s benefiting from having multiple opponents as enabler Meluskey is keenly aware. Many political observers believe that’s exactly why he’s in the race.

Censured by elected leaders of his own party, John McCain has not only worn out his welcome among Arizona voters, he is viewed as the least popular U.S. Senator nationwide. That’s a record McCain has to fight to maintain, since his doppelgänger Jeff Flake previously won the undesirable prize just three months after taking office. Arizonans don’t deserve one such embarrassment — let alone two.

Rather than assisting an actual conservative, Meluskey appears to be  working double time to either keep the status quo or aid Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick.

Polling shows Dr. Kelli Ward at 26%, Alex Meluskey at 4% and Clair Van Steenwyk at 2% with 27% undecided. In a head-to-head match up between McCain and Ward, the two are tied at 41%. Ward is polling this competitively at this point despite having lesser name recognition. A former state senator and a Lake Havasu City physician, she has the experience to retool Obamacare and the integrity to make Arizonans proud of their senate representation. After repeatedly being directed to drink the amnesty Kool Aid by  Sens. Kyl, McCain and Flake, wouldn’t that be a novel concept for Arizonans?

It’s critical that voters get up to speed on the ongoing deception. SRAZ has covered Meluskey previously in these posts:

McCain skips convention to dine with open borders CofC

July 19, 2016

Chambers of Commerce have an agenda to import low wage foreign workers and McCain fulfills it

If you’re wondering where John McCain is during the Republican National Convention set to endorse the presidential nomination of Donald Trump, wonder no more. At age 80, McCain is desperately trying to hang on to the U.S. Senate seat he’s occupied for another 6-year term. 

McCain was first elected in 1982, before many Arizona voters were even born.

The convention-boycotting McCain spoke at a luncheon hosted by the Prescott, Prescott Valley and Chino Valley Chambers of Commerce on Monday. Today McCain is speaking at a luncheon put on by Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce, and on Thursday he’ll be chowing down at another lunch event sponsored by the Kingman Area Chamber of Commerce.

Amnesty supporting John McCain has the support of the dangerous Open Border U.S. Chambers of Commerce and a ‘who’s who’ list of special interest lobbyists * in Washington, D.C.

Despite wildly outspending his conservative challenger Dr. Kelli Ward, McCain finds himself in a  in a dead heat with her and facing an embarrassing forced retirement.  We all know it’s past time to retire the ancient deceiver who runs as a Republican and votes with the Democrats while advancing Obama’s agenda. Kelli Ward needs to get her message out.  You can be a valuable asset in helping make U.S. Senator Kelli Ward a reality.  Do what you can. This is vitally important.
