RINO Kathy Petsas aids Dem fundraising machine

Arizona Democrats are desperately trying to get their finance mechanism greased up with some cash infusions from “the folks.” The task becomes tougher as Obama’s schemes to further separate Americans from their money take hold.

Still, we were surprised to see a recent missive from Frank Camacho, the party’s Communications Director. After nearly 30 years in the KTVK-Channel 3 newsroom, the former anchor should be a bit more savvy — but, after all, he is a Democrat.

In the email pitch for cash Camacho claims that conservative Republicans are an embarrassment to the state of Arizona. His pathetic plea sits atop an editorial from the liberal Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic), which opines “some Arizona Republican leaders…still don’t understand messaging.”

“Help the Arizona Democratic Party fight back, make a contribution now!” Camacho’s plea fairly screams.  He makes liberal use of the term  “kook,” the word of the moment to denigrate Republicans.  And where did that highly charged, hypercritical word get its legs?

Left-leaning Republican Precinct Committeeman Kathy Petsas (Dist. 28) was often quoted by columnist Laurie Roberts in the República. The duo tossed the terms “kook” and “kooky” around with wild abandon. Then came the doozy: “Dekookification.” That referred to a purging of conservatives, most notably from the state legislature and intra-party office holders.

Petsas must be proud her word is gaining traction.  Now the Democrats are using her terminology to fundraise.

Nice going, Ms. Petsas.  Since you’re aiding the Democrats with their fundraising strategy, perhaps you should give some thought to officially joining them.  You could probably work your trophy status into a lofty job with Macho Camacho.

We previously wrote about Petsas’ efforts to rid the AZ GOP of conservatives HERE.

    Petsas should be removed from her PC position for failure to adhere to the Republican Mission Statement. Bernard

  2. PVPC says:

    Not much of a surprise that the foolishness that epitomizes Kathy Petsas is being used to aid and abet the democrats. She does that every day in every way and should be voted out as a precinct committeeman. The unfortunate truth is, too many in her district are her equals. Once the district leadership switched from conservative to Republican-lite, this is routine. District chairman Scott O’Connor regards himself as a “moderate,” but conservatives view him as the liberal he is. This is McCainville.

  3. Jim says:

    She is also a strong supporter of the wacky Lisa Gray for MCRC Chairman. If there is anyone questioning whom to support in that contest, KP’s position should erase all doubts. Remember that Petsas, Gray, Dubreil, Graham, Tobin, S. Pierce, Ash, Flake, McCain, etc. are all interconnected by finances and values.

    • Arizona Conservative Guy says:

      What are you smoking, Jim? I take this to mean you are supporting the little known Little for State Chair over Robert Graham. Just what we need, more divisiveness to destroy the AZ GOP once and for all. Graham brings excellent business skills and a youthful vibrancy that the party sorely needs. It’s time to get rid of some of the unemployed hacks who can’t raise money for themselves let along the party.

      • Jim says:

        WOW, is someone hypersensitive or what? You took one word out of fifty and decided that I was smoking something because you have a personal hot button. Attacking a commenter somehow eliminates divisiveness? That is oxymoronic!

        Since you chose to highlight that one word, maybe you should look at the over $100,000.00 that Graham contributed to entities that used the money directly or indirectly AGAINST conservative candidates in primaries this past year.

        I also think that it is unfair to attack proven conservative leaders as “unemployed hacks”. That would include people like Russell Pearce, Rob Haney, Tom Husband, Phil Mason, Jim O’Connor, AJ LaFaro.

        I suppose that you propose that anyone who has institutional memory and honorably served for decades – probably before you decided that it was somehow a good thing to be classified a conservative – should be put on the shelf and replaced with the youth who have no memory and not much wisdom. That has always worked so well – I think not!

        PS: Merry Christmas. May you find wisdom, discernment and good will in your stocking.

      • Arizona Conservative Guy says:

        Most of the people you named are not “unemployed hacks.” They have had careers that have spanned decades and are now retired and giving back to their community by volunteering considerable time and effort to the Arizona Republican Party. Before becoming a District Chairman and twice elected Maricopa County Chairman, Rob Haney was an IBM engineer; Tom Husband, a lawyer. Russell Pearce rose to the rank of Chief Deputy in the sheriff‘s office, was a Justice of the Peace, a state senator, and ran two state agencies. The last three guys are unknown to me, although I have heard good things about A. J. LaFaro. If he is half as good as they say, he will have my vote for County Chair.

        Memory is a valuable trait, but so it the ability to get things done without being offensive. Your snide comment about my stocking goes unanswered, other than to say “back at ‘ya.”

      • Jim says:

        Why is it that Graham deciding to run against the incumbent Chairman is not divisive, but Little deciding to run for the open seat is divisive? That is weird when put in context.

        So who are the unemployed hacks? Using your criteria in your last post, Morrissey retired from a 20 year career as a Federal Marshal and his background is a mirror image of the people you identified as not being unemployed hacks. Remember, he was enjoying his retirement two years ago when Haney, Husband, etc literally begged him to step up and serve as Chairman after the Ash betrayal.

        BTW, I do not consider any of the group “unemployed hacks” either. I was just trying to find out who and what your criteria was for such verbiage. Since you mentioned Little, he is not an “unemployed hack” either. He has a business resume that most would be envious of and is currently the owner of a successful business.

        I do not know you, but if you are going to have some credibility as having some knowledge of the GOP scene, you should really at least recognize the names O’Connor, Mason, and LaFaro. They have been leaders in the Party long before Graham appeared on the scene.

        So once again, I sincerely wish that you would gain wisdom, discernment and a sense of good will – especially since you have claimed a desire to reduce divisiveness in the Party. That way, you could be a part of the solution instead of simply taking pot shots at those you disagree with.

      • Jim says:

        PS: Thanks for the wish that I would have wisdom, discernment and good will . I pray for those things every day in addition to the prayer of Jabez. Your joining me in those supplications is appreciated, even if stated as a “gotcha”.

  4. American Dad says:

    Hey Frank Camacho, you might not have noticed, but this is Christmas week. Cash strapped folks are struggling thanks to the president you helped elect. This is definitely not the time to be hustling for money. Turn the temperature down at Dem headquarters and wear sweaters. Take up smoking. The hot drag filing your lungs will warm you up. Cut off the phone service. You all have cells. There are so many ways to save a buck. Call up Terry Goddard. Now that he’s not running for anything, he’s probably got some loose change to help keep the utilities running. If he’s unwilling, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid will surely chip in.

  5. Blaine Dunning says:

    We need some Dekookification of these people pretending to be conservatives and helping elect the wrong people. Nothing Camacho does or says about anything should matter to a conservative. They get out fund-raised every time and it bugs the crap out of them, so they are trying to change things from the inside. Jim you can add Crandall to that list of people as he carpetbagged Fillmore in LD16 and I didn’t vote for him, never will again.

  6. Fed Up says:

    Petsas must be very proud of herself as she helps Democrats. Any mention of her name would be good enough for her.

  7. eubykdisop says:

    This Communist style infiltration and attack from within is not merely a local phenomenon. Petsas didn’t invent this. She’s merely using the template provided by the “New World Order” people who are part of the national Republican “establishment”.

    For any Newt Gingrich fans out there, we have this:

    “Gingrich: Republicans must embrace same sex marriage and immigration reform”


    Really? Must we, Newt? I think not!

    Don’t be fooled into thinking that this is all about Liberals versus Conservatives or Democrats versus Republicans. That is an outdated paradigm. It’s now about the “New World Order” people versus Conservatives. Why? Because the principles and values held by Conservatives define America’s national identity and the unique position which The United States of America has held in the world. All of that must go for “One World” and the “New World Order” to come into being.

    Aren’t you wondering why there are so many “traitors” coming out of the woodwork in the Republican Party? Do you think it’s simply that they “flipped” to being Liberal? That doesn’t make any sense.

    To make sense of things, don’t look at what these “traitors” have moved away from but rather what they are moving toward! What they are moving toward is not Liberalism, Socialism or Communism per se. Those are merely means to an end. The end is “One World” and the “New World Order”!

    So don’t waste your time and energy swatting at Liberals, Democrats and RINO’s. They are the effect, not the cause. Like a magician, the “New World Order” people seek to misdirect so that no effective opposition to their agenda will be mounted. They want us in disarray, jousting at windmills, while they implement their agenda.

    Wake up. Get the big picture. Identify the REAL enemy of Conservatives. Identify what the REAL target should be. Then Conservatives can strike at the heart of evil and be effective. Otherwise we are going to be chasing decoys until it is too late.

    Start talking “One World” and “New World Order”, instead of “Liberal”, “Progressive”, “Democrat” or “RINO”, and watch the explosion! Blow the cover of the “New World Order” people and you’re going to see some major fireworks! You will then know that you hit the nerve center!

    • xamericanpridex says:

      Well said, euby! Thank you for telling it like it really is.

      • eubykdisop says:

        Thank you very much, xamericanpridex, for hearing what I have to say! It’s nice to know that other Conservatives can see through the smoke screen as well!

        Let’s get ’em! Down with the “New World Order”!

  8. Frankly Speaking says:

    Such a fine analysis, euby! Thanks for always making us think outside the smaller box.

    • eubykdisop says:

      You’re very kind, Frankly Speaking. I’m simply sharing the results of the investigations I conducted in seeking to get to the bottom of what is going on. So many things seem confusing and contradictory… until they are looked at in the context of the “One World”, “New World Order” agenda. Then, suddenly, everything fits into place and makes perfect sense!

      If I don’t see you here before then, have a blessed Christmas and a joyous New Year, Frankly Speaking!

  9. Westnash says:

    I dont know anything about Petsas but little Euby calls everyone here a Communist while the Republican party gets Californiaized! Remember hearing about a guy names McCarthy? He saw communists under every quilt. I dont think there are Commies here but there are plenty of people who know nothing about selling the party to potential new members, so they might actually WIN something.

    If Arizona Republicans become the party of smaller and more streamlined govt (city, county, state) and mean it by cutting duplication…they will be winners and a model (instead of a laughingstock) to the nation! Otherwise they will be running around looking for communists while their party becomes irrevelent.

    • eubykdisop says:

      ROFL! Nice try, Pinko! Let’s quote you:

      “…Euby calls everyone here a Communist…” Really? Everyone? Is that right!

      Well glory be! He even goes to the Pinko trump card; invoking McCarthy, LOL!

      Now, Pinko, why don’t you tell us what you actually know about U. S. Senator Joseph McCarthy? Here, I’ll help you a little.

      “After America was attacked on December 7th, 1941, Joseph McCarthy enlisted in the Marine Corps. He served his country honorably, flying eleven missions and earning a Distinguished Flying Cross award.” Now that is one terrible guy… to a Pinko!

      “In his famous speech on February 9th, 1950, McCarthy brought public a list of 57 known communists working for the state department. These revelations took the American public by storm. Out of all the Senators and public figures in Washington, only McCarthy had the courage to stand up against communist infiltration. It was a deed that McCarthy’s leftist critics would never forgive him for.” You’re STILL upset with McCarthy, aren’t you, Pinko!

      “He was noted for claiming that there were large numbers of Communists and Soviet spies and sympathizers, engaged in a conspiracy to undermine the United States, inside the federal government. He was proven correct by government documents and inquiry, including decrypted Venona files.”

      What are the Venona files?

      “The Venona project intercepted codes passed among agents of the communist Soviet Union during World War II, and attempted to decrypt them.”

      “After the collapse of the Soviet Union, documents from the KGB and Comintern Archives in Moscow became available to researchers and the public for the first time, corroborating the facts of McCarthy’s underlying premise.”

      The Moynihan Secrecy Commission stated that:

      “The first fact is that a significant Communist conspiracy was in place in Washington, New York, and Los Angeles, but in the main those involved systematically denied their involvement.”

      Hayden Peake, curator of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Historical Intelligence Collection has stated, “No modern government was more thoroughly penetrated.”

      Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Chairman of the bipartisan Commission on Government Secrecy, responsible for securing the release of Venona project materials, in the Introduction to his book Secrecy states, “The Venona intercepts contained overwhelming proof of the activities of Soviet spy networks in America, complete with names, dates, places, and deeds.”

      “Over 200 named or covernamed persons found in the Venona translations, persons then present in the U.S., are claimed by the KGB and the GRU in their messages as their clandestine assets or contacts.”

      Here are a few of those for you:

      John Abt, United States Department of Agriculture; Works Progress Administration; Civil Liberties Subcommittee, Senate Committee on Education and Labor; special assistant to the United States Attorney General, United States Department of Justice

      Solomon Adler, United States Department of the Treasury

      Marion Davis Berdecio, Office of Naval Intelligence; Office of the Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs; United States Department of State

      So your attack on Senator Josesph McCarthy simply further proves that you are, as I have stated and will continue to state, a Pinko!

      Have a nice day, Pinko! :-)

    By the way. I’m sure there are those who read what I have written regarding “One World” and the “New World Order” who think that I’m nuts and that the “New World Order” is nothing more than a conspiracy theory. For those skeptics, here are some excerpts from speeches given in 1992 by Joe Biden which are part of the Congressional Record:

    “Excerpts from Senator Biden’s speeches”

    “Senate – June 29, 1992 —
    Congressional Record [Pages: S9098 – S9102]:
    The Threshold of the New World Order: The Wilsonian Vision
    and American Foreign Policy in the 1990’s and Beyond”

    “. . . I shall urge that we revive the concept of a new world order, rescue the phrase from cynicism, and invest in it a vision that should become the organizing principle of American foreign policy in the 1990’s and into the next century.”

    “. . . the moment is upon us to define a compelling concept of a new world order to commit ourselves to it, and to lead the world in its realization.”

    “Our challenge demands that we conceive a new world order that encompasses, and builds upon, the concept of collective security that Woodrow Wilson first advanced to a nation and a world not yet ready to comprehend its necessity.”

    “Senate – June 30, 1992
    Congressional Record [Pages S9173 – S9179]:
    American Agenda for the New World Order:
    A. Cementing the Democratic Foundation;
    B. Forging A New Strategy of Containment”

    “The call for cooperation is precisely that, a call for intensified, global cooperation: in scientific research and education; in the establishment of agreed standards, incentives, and procedures relating to the preservation of animals, plants, and vital resources; in treaties to control dangerous arms and dangerous pollution…”

    “The joining of the second world to the first would complete the new order’s foundation: Bringing the world’s major nations into a concert of cooperating democracies.”

    [Page: S9179]

    “Mr. KERRY. Mr. President, I begin by congratulating my friend and colleague, the Senator from Delaware and colleague on the Foreign Relations Committee, for his very thoughtful analysis of a real new world order.”

    Today, Biden is Vice President and Kerry has been nominated for Secretary of State. Still think that the “New World Order” is fiction and nothing more than a “conspiracy theory”?

    • Reagan Regular says:

      Fascinating information here, eubykdisop, and quite an education for me…and I hope others. Thank you for including the verification. Sharing this knowledge is very important in the uncertain times in which we live.
      I also learned a lot about Sen. Joseph McCarthy that I didn’t previously know. Thanks for that, as well.

      PS Pay no attention to Westnash. I don’t.

      • eubykdisop says:

        Hi, Reagan Regular!

        Thank you very much! I always try to include as much in the way of documentation as possible so that people can independently verify things for themselves, if they are so inclined. I am one of those people myself who will check things out before accepting them as fact.

        As you know, the mainstream media is controlled by the left, actually by the “New World Order” people, so you won’t hear anything about this stuff there. That is because the “One World” people feel it is important to operate in a more or less clandestine manner. The thing which they LEAST want is for Americans to be acutely aware of their agenda and activities.

        Imagine if people like McCain, Flake, Kerry and Biden were to begin being asked questions about the “New World Order” instead of the usual questions about individual issues! They can’t deny that they know about it. What are they going to say? They can’t get away with calling it a “conspiracy theory” because there is WAY too much solid evidence of it. THEN the cat would be out of the bag and all hell would break loose! Wouldn’t that be nice!

        As regards Westnash, exposing Pinkos is a good vehicle for getting out more of the truth! Their statements and arguments can never withstand scrutiny because those statements and arguments are based on lies, falsehoods, distortions and misrepresentations. Kind of like a virtual game of shooting ducks in a barrel, LOL! ;-)

        Have a blessed Christmas and a very happy New Year, Reagan Regular!

        Enough said by the Euby right there. It is a Communist under every bed. Your history is very selective. McCarthy never did anything good and his war record, like that of LBJ, was very overblown. Communism broke under its own weight and the light of day.

        What all your blowing will do is insure that you have more Sinema’s in Arizona and it will go the way of California. Now you can go back in your compound and raise your Lost Cause flag’s!

      Blessings to you, too, my friend. I don’t comment much, but check in here most days, via subscription that handily shows up in my email. That’s how I’ve become familiar with your informative comments, which I’ve steadily grown to appreciate.

      All the best to you, and us all, in the coming year. Conservatives are in peril at every level.

      • eubykdisop says:

        Thank you, Reagan Regular!

        Be of good cheer because conservatives have chosen to be on God’s side! God chooses those who choose Him! Jesus Christ has told us that with God, all things are possible. We can take comfort in these words from the Only Begotten Son:

        “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” – Matthew 28:20

        Those are not idle words but to realize the Truth in them we have to put ourselves to the test. So let us gird our loins, realizing that:

        “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” -Psalm 23:5

    ROFL!!! Let’s take this little Pinko tirade one snippet at a time, shall we?

    Now, Pinko, I offered proof of the “New World Order” push by providing excerpts from the speechs of Joe Biden. Those speeches are part of the Congressional Record and the references are cited. Do you or do you not have any factual evidence to refute that? Yes or no? If you do, post it. If not, clam up!


    I posted a plethora of documentation of Communist infiltration of the U. S. government. I quoted The Moynihan Secrecy Commission, cited the Venona files and quoted Hayden Peake, curator of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Historical Intelligence Collection. Do you or do you not have any factual evidence to refute what I have presented? Yes or no? If so, post it. If not, clam up!

    I cited the fact that Joseph McCarthy enlisted in the Marines, served honorably, flew eleven missions and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. Do you or do you not have any factual evidenc to refute that record? Yes or no? If you do, post it here. If you don’t, clam up!


    Communism is alive and well, despite your propaganda to the contrary. China, Cuba, Laos, Vietnam and North Korea are all Communist countries. Furthermore, the Communist Party USA is active right here in Arizona, as well as nationwide, and there are active Communist political parties in allied nations, like England. If you have any factual information to refute that, let’s see it.

    “Young Communists labor to begin own UA chapter ”

    “By Jacqueline Kuder
    Arizona Daily Wildcat
    Tuesday, January 31, 2006”

    “Anticapitalist students work to cure society’s ills”

    “The Young Communist League tried to “rally their troops” yesterday on the UA Mall in an attempt to organize a chapter at the UA, members said.”

    “The YCL teamed up with the Communist Party USA at the Associated Students of the University of Arizona Progressive Fair on the Mall to talk to students and faculty about communism and trying to “make a better future,” said Joe Bernick, organizational secretary of the Communist Party USA for Arizona.”

    Sam Webb, chairman of the Communist Party USA, actually visited Tucson in 2011:

    “Last week at the Salt of the Earth Labor College in Tucson, Sam Webb, chair of the US Communist Party, addressed these worldwide crises, the role of capitalism, and the growing push-back from the people.”

    “Using the pro-union, anti-right-wing government demonstrations in Wisconsin as a jumping off point, Webb said there is a growing “spirit of struggle” in the US. According to Webb, the current movement is “qualitatively different” because recent demonstrations against the extremist Republican agenda have drawn tens of thousands of people to rallies nationwide.”


    Now what was that you were saying about “Communists under the bed”? What was that about “Communism broke under its own weight”?

    Like all Pinkos, you hate anti-Communists, like Joseph McCarthy, and you would have Americans believe that the Communists are dead and gone.

    Now why don’t you go grab your hammer and sickle and trot along over to Daily Kos where you belong, Pinko!

    Have a nice day, “Westnash Pinko”! :-)
