First, a bit of background. During the 2016 election cycle Arizona saw the entrance of out-of-state money as Socialist multi-billionaire George Soros interjected himself into numerous campaigns. He targeted and spent millions in an effort to unseat Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and County Attorney Bill Montgomery, both Republicans. Arpaio, who was elected to an unprecedented six 4-year terms lost to Soros-backed leftist Paul Penzone, who was the recipient of $3.2 million. Montgomery retained his seat despite being in the crosshairs of a Soros-funded PAC which spent over $1 million.
This seemingly inexhaustible spending has been Soros’ modus operandi throughout the United States as he has worked to liberalize criminal statutes and elect those who would do his bidding.
Shortly after Penzone, a onetime Phoenix police officer, previously noted for roughing up his former wife, was sworn in as sheriff, he warmly referred to illegal invaders who breach our southern border by the hundreds of thousands, as “guests.”
Globalist Soros is an ardent opponent of sovereign nations and national borders.
Unlike Hungarian-born Soros, Tom Steyer is a homegrown radical billionaire, but the two are on similar missions: Replacing Republican office holders with far-left Democrats. Steyer’s group spent more than $3 million to oust Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich and three GOP state senators, batting zero. Ditto with the Democrats Steyer funded for the Arizona Corporation Commission. He also failed in 2018, while spending close to $100,000 trying to unseat AZ Gov. Doug Ducey. That was an intriguing effort, since John McCain was a longtime recipient of Soros’ wealth, and McCain recruited his friend Ducey to run — first for state treasurer and then for governor. Ducey’s first job when he arrived in Arizona to attend ASU was working for beer heiress Cindy Hensley McCain at Hensley & Co., the Anheuser-Busch beer wholesaler and distributor.
Steyer, who is considering a 2020 presidential run, is targeting two of President Trump’s congressional loyalists and leaders of the House Freedom Caucus: GOP Reps. Jim Jordan (OH) and Mark Meadows (NC). The ad money is supplied by Steyer’s “Need to Impeach PAC.” This ad, (video) invokes an image of John McCain as displaying “courage” for his vile treatment of Trump.
Tom Steyer has many far-left irons in the fire. He is also insinuating himself into the battle opposing the Arizona Public Service rate increase, to curry favor with ratepayers, who have no choice in the utility from which they purchase power. The question to ask is why is this leftist Californian interested in Arizona utility rates, and how does he benefit?
Both Steyer and Soros are frequently referred to as “philanthropists.” Giving vast sums to aid extremist Democrats and Republicrats is obviously the height of benevolence.
