If you like AZ’s leftist election results, thank a teacher

Today, over a week after the general elections took place, is the drop-dead, court-extended day for ballot tabulations.

Republican Martha McSally has already conceded the 6-year open Arizona senate seat to leftist chameleon Kyrsten Sinema, who presented herself as an “independent,” shunning the word, “Democrat.“ The Green Party candidate siphoned off 2.37%.

We don’t need a diviner to set forth the disturbing facts. Red Arizona is veering into Purpleland. The Secretary of State’s Nov. 6, 2018 updated election returns show a decidedly putrid puce.

In the nine state congressional races, Arizona retained Republicans Paul Gosar (CD-4), Andy Biggs (CD-5), David Schweikert (CD-6), and Debbie Lesko (CD-8), by wide margins, though Democrats took districts 1, 2, 3, 7 and 9. In CD-7, only a bizarre Green Party challenge was mounted against the Dem.

Although Republicans Gov. Doug Ducey (leading by 330,677 votes), Attorney General Mark Brnovich (leading by 89,401 votes) and State Treasurer Kimberly Yee (leading by 197,076 votes) hold comfortable margins, other GOP candidates are not so fortunate.

In the race for Secretary of State, Republican Steve Gaynor inexplicably trails second-rate Democrat Katie Hobbs with a tight 49.09% to 50.1%.

Republican Frank Riggs, a far superior candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction, falls behind Democrat Kathy Hoffman 48.8% to 51.2% as she leads by 53,780 votes.

Republicans have lost one seat of the two available on the utility rate setting Corporation Commission, with Justin Olson the single GOP victor in what surprisingly turned out to be a tight race.

Post election quarterbacking has been non-stop, with various reasons emerging such as the bogus claim of the “awakening” of women voters. Don’t kid yourselves. Women have never been asleep at the voting wheel. The reason is far more insidious. Look no further than the striking, far-left unionists, #Reds for Ed teachers who thumbed their noses at their contractual agreements, as they abandoned Arizona’s 840.000 students for a week as they followed a Socialist Pied Piper, demanding — and getting — a 20% pay hike for their less than full time jobs, that still didn’t placate them.

With the support of the increasingly radical, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper, public school teachers also led the vote against Prop. 305, which would have expanded eligibility for education empowerment scholarship accounts. The educrats organized to deny parental choice in education.

We’ve all been behind cars displaying the bumper sticker that says, “If you can read this, thank a teacher.” It’s time for a new bumper sticker: “If you like liberals taking over AZ, thank a teacher.” They’d sell like hotcakes.

    Oh I will “thank” these RedForEd union thugs – by voting in every way possible and at every opportunity AGAINST any and all interest of public so-called “education” for as long as I live. Lazy “school” union educrats are interested only in satisfying their personal greed as well as promulgating their liberal socialist agenda – and charging the taxpayers for the privilege. The CORRECT response to their shenanigans would have been to handle them exactly the same way that Reagan took care of PATCO – by firing them all. A pox on them all.

    • Bobbi D. says:

      The RedsForEd union thugs could and should have been fired. Public employees should never be allowed to strike without consequences.

      Every public education request for taxpayer dollars will forever remind me of the sea of red t-shirts at our state capitol.

    Very unhappy to hear that Kyl may be touting McSally for the spot he is holding. Totally opposed to her for anything statewide.

    • East Valley Conservative says:

      Congresswoman Martha McSally beats beer heiress Cindy Hensley McCain by a country mile. Cindy would give us more of what her now sainted husband threw our way. Of the realistic possible choices, who would you prefer?

      • Jig says:

        What Cindy wants Cindy will get in the end but I don’t want either one. McSally may want Cindy for a g/f before it is over.

    This post is right on target!!
    Teachers are not what we remember from our youth. Today they are propagandists for the Democrat Party, indoctrinating America’s students from the earliest ages. Kindergarten audiences is where books such as “Heather has two Mommies,” have been aimed in what has become a successful effort to normalize homosexuality. That has been accompanied by the onslaught of out of the closet celebs and the comedy shows that dominate far too many unsupervised kids’ TV watching. Barack Obama had the rainbow “Pride” colors light up the outside of the White House as he oversaw the legalization of same sex “marriage.”

    When Obama first ran for President, the NEA teachers met for their national convention in Nevada and voted themselves a $10 a month dues increase specifically earmarked for Obama’s campaign.My liberal sister, a teacher, was thrilled to tell us about her monthly donation!

    Wise up, folks. Our own brainwashed kids will soon be aiding in undermining our country. Turn off the TV and talk to them about our Constitutional freedoms and explain conservative values to them in ways they can understand and that counter what they are being taught in public schools. When the TV is on, watch Fox News and engage in conversations about the topics, Tucker Carlson’s is a good show to watch together.

      Absolutely, tenure for teachers and public paid pensions should be eliminated tomorrow morning as well as the totally ridiculous salaries for officials at public colleges and universities. If those million $$$ salaries and benefits were eliminated how much more could be done to educate kids who don’t go to school 5 days a week?

      Taxpayers are shamed into giving more and more to an Arizona Education System that produces less and less in the way of results.

      • Braveheart says:

        I have always opposed tenure. It’s just another part of the educrat rip off. Too many fail to admit it, especially the cowed parents who are lulled into believing in the wonderfulness of their kid’s teachers, but teaching is a part time job. Do you get the summers off and extended holiday breaks for Christmas and Easter, which are now neutered into Winter and Spring breaks? Do you get numerous half days off for bogus reasons or to hold workshops with your colleagues? Many of the teachers who complain about their wages went into teaching for the union benefits, great retirement packages and short work schedules.

        If they wanted to work year round, they would have become engineers, doctors, architects, lawyers or CPAs, but most of them couldn’t cut the additional years of schooling necessary for professions such as I’ve named.

    Ducey serves at the pleasure of the McCains.
    Not the taxpaying citizens of Arizona.

    Speaking of taxes, We Now Have TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.

    Keep an eye on Senator Grassley, from whom many good things will blossom.

    Thank their utility co. PG&E; “smart meters”, and their satellite that acts as a solar generator. Who runs PG&E, anyway, and what ties exist? Dark and deep.

    Homes caught on fire before trees ignited.

    Just one reason that President Trump is pushing the newest branch of the U.S. Military—the Space Force.

    Who is investigating the fraud?? Where is Ducey? Where is Brnovich?? I’m so frustrated and angry with this lawlessness!!
