Gov. Ducey, McRINOs, Dems, reward Kate McGee for turning LD 28 blue

August 31, 2019

To call this invitation to a toney fundraising reception at the Phoenix Country Club preposterous would be the height of understatement. Gov. Doug Ducey is listed as the “Honored Guest.”

The no-attendance-price specified invitation hosted by a load of McCain allies, lobbyists, RINOs, Democrats, and few scattered surprises, states individual donors are limited to $5,200 and couples can only donate $10,400. Those are top limits, but sends a clear message: Pikers are not who LD 28 candidate Kate Brophy McGee hopes to attract.

There’s a back story to this swank soiree that needs to be told. State Senator Kate Brophy McGee was so busy attempting to manipulate the 2018 election in Legislative District 28 that she barely squeaked back into the state senate, winning by a razor-thin margin of 50.1% over an emboldened newcomer educrat who captured 49.9% — separating them by only 267 votes. This was beyond shocking in the formerly longtime Republican stronghold where decades once passed without a single Democrat being elected.

This near loss was not a fluke. Brophy McGee was the recipient of Republican wrath for pulling strings to influence the election in an effort to bring her RINOcrat buddy Kathy Petsas on-board for one of the two House seats.  Petsas — who targeted conservatives and aided Democrats as far back as 2012 — lost.

McGee’s 2018 machinations were responsible for two Democrats winning both district House seats while bumping highly qualified Republican incumbent Maria Syms, the sole pro-life candidate. Syms’ exceptional career includes having served as an Assistant Attorney General, Assistant U.S. Attorney, Paradise Valley Town Councilwoman, and a State Representative. She has a proven track record advocating for education, law enforcement, public safety and border security.

During that election Brophy McGee, described by the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic as a “moderate,” actively courted Democrats, declaring  her gratitude for their endorsements. Ducey, in a major miscalculation, endorsed Brophy McGee and Petsas, even recording a robocall urging Republicans to support Petsas.

Now the Democrat unionist teacher who almost routed Brophy McGee is emboldened and running again — recently hosting a Saturday night kickoff event. Despite being outspent by almost two-to-one, Leftist Christine Porter Marsh came within spitting distance of Brophy McGee. The Dems are banking on turning the entire district blue. With the two House seats now in the left’s column and scheming Brophy McGee in the Senate, Conservatives think it already is.  If Republican Ducey is supporting McGee out of fear of losing Legislative District 28 entirely, he needs to put some conditions on his endorsement. It’s unlikely that he has.

Another version of this invitation was originally posted two weeks ago, Aug. 18, previous to the addition of the host committee. In an effort to provide our well-informed readers with the most accurate information, this updated invitation, including the committee makes for interesting reading.


Daniel McCarthy’s challenge to Sen. McSally fulfills Kelly’s dream

August 30, 2019

Claiming he supports President Trump, ego-driven McCarthy mounts a senate challenge to incumbent Martha McSally, who has Trump’s endorsement — setting up a needless and damaging internecine battle

Here we go again. Seeking elusive perfection, some GOP politicos who should know better, enthuse over the entrance of Daniel McCarthy, an unknown entity to muddy the waters and pave the path for a second U.S. Senate Democrat. 

First, some background: Decades of frustration with John McCain and his U.S. Senate colleague, Jon Kyl, only worsened when the duo worked overtime shoehorning the eager Republicrat U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake into Kyl’s then soon-to-be-vacant senate seat.

 “Comprehensive immigration reform” the slick term used by McCain and Kyl to conceal their goal of amnesty for illegal aliens, got double-time effort from slippery Flake, formerly a registered foreign agent who represented the African country of Namibia and a uranium mine operation with ties to Iran. As a House member, he clung to his single issue of eliminating pork projects. That contrivance evaporated with the lofty title, “senator” before his name. Flake’s campaign-based lies regarding amnesty, like those of McCain and Kyl, became so overt that even the leftist Arizona Republic called him out asa coward.” Eventually, he was reduced to a single senate term due to 18% approval ratings in his home state, wisely opting not to run for reelection.

Although President Trump supports and has endorsed incumbent Martha McSally for the U.S. Senate seat, she is not sufficiently conservative for some of our perfectionist seeking compatriots, though her stellar military career and her congressional service burnish her credentials.

 

A never-before-heard-of senate wannabe named Daniel McCarthy has now announced a McSally challenge. His credentials are nil. He has never served in the state legislature or run for any city, county or statewide office, but the rarefied air of the Potomac beckons him. The Glendale resident is in his mid-30s with four young children who presumably would benefit from having a father in their daily lives. His wife created a makeup eraser that has brought them wealth. With the brashness of a political no-nothing, he has already declared he intends to self-fund, not understanding that when you bypass donors you lack dedicated supporters with skin in the game. 

McCarthy’s arrogant entrance into the senate primary will force McSally to spend money she needs for the General Election — all but guaranteeing a win for the unchallenged liberal friend of Obama, Mr. Gabby Giffords/Mark Kelly. He has already been the recipient of Socialist billionaire George Soros’ largesse. The Soros affiliated ActBlue funding leftist candidates with radical agendas has hosted D.C. fundraisers for Kelly. Soros, who abhors national borders, obviously opposes a border wall, which McSally supports. Mark Kelly seeks to gut our Constitutionally enshrined Second Amendment rights.

National GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel unequivocally supports Martha McSally as does Arizona Republican Party chairwoman Dr. Kelli Ward.

 

Sen. Martha McSally is by far the superior choice. Why would Trump supporting conservatives poke their thumb in the eye of the president to whom they claim allegiance to aid an untested, showboating candidate who guarantees Arizona will have two Democrat U.S. Senators?

Using a sports analogy, political novice McCarthy’s arrogant entry into this senate race should rightfully be regarded as ‘snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.’


Just a couple of murderous “boys”

Two teens being held in the wanton murders of two coffee shop employees during an armed robbery in Phoenix have been charged as adults.

Roosevelt Row artists David Bessent, 41, and Zachary Walter, 24, were senselessly shot and killed while walking home after completing their shift in the early morning hours of Oct. 5, 2018.

Antonio Palafox-Zermeno,16, and Castulo Cervantes,15, — charged with two counts of first-degree murder, armed robbery and assault — are both warmly described as “boys” by the Arizona Republic newspaper. While awaiting trial, the armed and dangerous “boys” are each being held in a Maricopa County jail on $1 million bond.


Flawed ballot Props pass, relying on low voter turnout, trickery

August 28, 2019

Trickery was also a major factor in the passage of Prop. 105, the measure to end the expansion of the $multi-billion light rail boondoggle. Voters who wanted to end the costly nightmare and designate money to repairing our roads and expanding bus service, had to vote “yes” — when their intent was to halt the expansion

Make no mistake. There is a method to the madness of the City of Phoenix holding elections in late August. (View unofficial election results). While those who can, head out of town to avoid the triple digit temperatures before school starts, city workers from police and firefighters to garbage men show up. 

In all, they are represented by five unions:

Laborers’ International Union of North America Local 777 representing nearly 1,000 landscapers, solid-waste equipment operators and street-maintenance workers.

American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 2384 representing approximately 1,600 mechanics, electricians, skilled workers, aviation staff and water-services employees.

American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 2960 representing over 2,000 office employees, including secretaries, clerks, 9-1-1 operators, administrative aides and building inspectors.

Phoenix Law Enforcement Association (PLEA) representing approximately 2,500 sworn police officers.

United Phoenix Fire Fighters Association represents nearly 1,600 firefighters.

All of the unions support spending expansions. Even PLEA dutifully sent out leftist city council woman Laura Pastor’s request to inform its members how to vote on ballot Propositions 105 and 106. Blue Phoenix is controlled by a Democrat Mayor and eight city council members — only two of whom, Sal DiCiccio and Vice Mayor Jim Waring — are reliably Republican. Thelda Williams routinely votes with the majority. The biggest affront is they all run under the city imposed guise of “non-partisan,” plunging voters even deeper in the dark.

In 1982 the election system was changed, forcing city council members who previously ran at-large and worked together for the betterment of the city, to representing specific, increasingly ethnically controlled districts, that further divide us.


Educrats reveal full-blown Socialist creds

August 27, 2019

These are the people influencing American students

Unionist teachers are the ones who left pupils in the lurch, abandoning more than 840,000 Arizona students for over a week in 2018 as they protested for 20% pay increases for their part-time jobs. It was not by happenstance were led on their escapade by a 24-year-old, self-described Socialist, uncredentialed hip-hop music teacher.

Recently, the Chicago Tribune reported on a delegation of Chicago teachers who traveled to Socialist-led Venezuela in solidarity with the United Socialist Party government of Nicolas Maduro. The New York Post also regarded this lunacy as newsworthy. Breitbart News gave it prominence. The leftist Arizona Republic didn’t regard it as worthy of coverage. 

The fact that the citizens of Venezuela are enduring devastating hardships resulting from a hyperinflationary economic collapse is of no consequence to these teachers, who funded their trips by begging on a Go Fund Me page.

The harsh realities of Socialism describes the unimaginable conditions the people in the oil rich nation are enduring under the repressive regime.

The brainless Chicago teachers traveled to the ravaged South American nation seeking “inspiration,” while bashing the U.S. government and heaping praise on the repressive Marxist boot on the collective neck of Venezuelans.

These particular teachers are Chicago residents, but their counterparts teach in Arizona and every other state across our nation. They overtly influence American students from kindergarten through college.

The Washington Times reports on a study showing Democrat professors at leading U.S. colleges outnumber Republicans 10 to I. This is the result:

 

 


Joe Arpaio seeks 7th term as Maricopa County Sheriff

August 26, 2019

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is back in campaign mode. The Republican career law enforcement professional who rose from the ranks of police officer to director of the Arizona office of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, made the Sunday announcement to coincide with the birthday of his wife, Ava.

Taking a well placed jab at Democrat Sheriff Paul Penzone, Arpaio’s primary mission in running for sheriff once more is to “Make Maricopa County safe again.”

Maricopa County voters will long remember that immediately after his election Penzone welcomed illegals, who have invaded our country by the hundreds of thousands, calling them “guests.”

According to this fact-filled press release, “Winning in next year’s election would give former Sheriff Arpaio an unprecedented seventh term in office. Arpaio has never lost a Republican primary for Sheriff and he is the only Republican Sheriff re-elected in the past 100 years in Maricopa County.”

Leftist Penzone won in 2016, thanks to his socialist multi-billionaire benefactor George Soros, who pumped over $3 Million into Penzone’s campaign as he prioritized overhauling the U.S. criminal justice system. Penzone was also the beneficiary of relentless hammering of Sheriff Arpaio by the failing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper — which also endorsed Penzone — previously best known for roughing up his former wife.

While a Phoenix Police Sergeant, Penzone was put on administrative leave after a domestic violence incident that included the issuance of an order of protection against him by his then-estranged wife. Under the order, Penzone was unable to possess firearms — making it difficult to carry out his duties as a police officer. This type of background is rightly a career killer in today’s world, but Penzone was not only given a pass, but won the newspaper’s warm endorsement.

Back in 2011, Human Events listed the “Top 10 Reasons George Soros Is Dangerous,” referring to him asthe single most destructive leftist demagogue in the country.” Soros is a Globalist who abhors national borders.

Another excellent exposé of Penzone’s benefactor Soros can be read inDavid Horowitz Explains How George Soros and the ‘Shadow Party’ Rule Over Democrats.”

Republicans welcome Sheriff Arpaio’s entry into the 2020 race. He knows the difference between actual guests and those who have complete disregard for our laws and sovereign border.


News report indicative of nothing but anti-Trump bias

August 25, 2019

As avid news followers and supporters of President Trump, this zinger of a headline topping an article that appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle was nothing short of attention-grabbing:

Reported Trump fan convicted in California of voter fraud, identity theft.”

The bizarre contrivance is proof positive that fake news is alive and well. In reading the report, it’s clear that it had nothing to do with the President of the United States. Seven words in the final sentence were given prominence to contort the report of a criminal illegal alien — slickly mischaracterized as an “undocumented resident” — charged with identity theft and voter fraud.

Student intern Alejandro Serrano, posing as a reporter, also wrote that charged perpetrator Gustavo Araujo Lerma was “convicted by a federal grand jury.”

Alejandro, who is doing a stint at the SF Chronicle, following a 10-week summer internship at the Chicago Tribune, needs a remedial course in basic legal proceedings if this is to be his beat. A grand jury has no power to convict anyone of a crime. After hearing evidence presented by prosecutors they can only issue an indictment to charge an individual with a crime. Trials do not take place before a grand jury.

And the illegal charged with the crimes? Alejandro Serrano writes, “according to one report, Lerma testified he was a fan of President Trump.”

According to the obviously leftist novice Alejandro, that sounds like an even more egregious crime than identify theft and voter fraud.

SF Gate, the online sister site of the Chronicle provided this editorial insight,The decline of news,” back in 2007. “The situation at the Chronicle has only worsened in the intervening years, resulting in editor-less interns inadequately filling the positions of seasoned journalists. Neil Henry wrote: “Reportedly losing an estimated $1 million a week, the paper’s owner, the Hearst Corp., concluded it had no recourse but to trim costs by laying off reporters, editors and other skilled professionals, or offering buyouts to the most seasoned journalists in order to induce them to leave. The cuts reportedly will amount to a quarter of The Chronicle’s editorial staff.”

Henry’s editorial is worth your time. The evaluation mirrors the slashing of jobs resulting in of these dire circumstances at the recently sold Arizona Republic.
