Lies from the AZ Republic reach anti-GOP pinnacle

Purposely using an incendiary headline, the admittedly failing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic intended to alarm its few remaining readers that the Arizona Republican Party was taking away their right to vote.

We couldn’t make this up.

The Page One headline actually says: “AZ GOP looks to scrap primary.”

If it appears something’s missing, truth and the facts are what are intentionally hidden.

The “primary” the provocative headline refers to is actually an optional internal 2020 Republican presidential preference primary or caucus that other states are also ditching. In addition to Arizona, Kansas, Nevada and South Carolina have made similar decisions. Others are sure to follow.

This action is not unprecedented. Democrats scraped eight primaries and caucuses in 1996 when then-incumbent Pres. Bill Clinton was running for reelection and 10 in 2012, during former Pres. Obama’s re-election campaign. Republicans cancelled eight internal preference primary contests in 1992 and 10 in 2004. 

Arizona GOP Chairman Kelli Ward is quoted as saying, “This is nothing new, despite the media’s inauthentic attempt to portray it as such. Arizona Republicans are fired up to re-elect President Trump to a second term and will continue to work together to keep America — and Arizona — great.”

    I’m so proud of my vote to elect Dr. Kelli Ward to lead the Republican Party. She’s the best AZ Republican Party Chairman we’ve had in a decade. Our last two, Robert Graham and his hand picked successor Jonathan Lines have been establishment toadies. Lines was voted out and replaced by Ward!!

      The McCainites surrounding them would of course keep the primary because they now follow Jeff Flake’s orders. Flake is definitely pulling the strings on the Montague mafia in Mesa.

  2. Trevor says:

    I fully support Dr. Ward scraping the primary, Trump has no serious primary challenger despite what the lying media says, the last GOP Presidents to have serious challengers were Ford and HW Bush.

    The AZ Repukelick was recently included in the purchase of the Gannett newspaper chain that was about to close its collective doors. The conglomerate’s extreme leftwing slant insulted so many readers that cancellations were outweighing new subscribers. It appears the same sickness infects Gatehouse, the new buyers. My take is they were willing to spend millions to influence the 2022 election outcome.

    The average person does not realize that there is a difference between a state primary election, used by the state to select party representatives for the general election, and presidential preference vote, which is a popularity vote, and has no effect on the name being placed on the national election ballot.

    • State Committeeman says:

      SRAZ’s clarification along with yours, is what the newspaper abhors. One of my associates recently called in a panic asking how the Republican Party could obliterate the primary election. As I tried to explain that wasn’t the case, his voice became more shill as he defended his concern by quoting the newspaper. He’s a college graduate which explains his reliance on the demoncrats running the news media.

      In today’s world higher education makes you dumber.

    The Leftists have only chaos and turmoil and lies in their bag of tricks.
    Why not? The one they follow is satan, who is also known as the father of all lies.

    Good vs. evil.
    That what is boils down to.

    You know what to do. Pray to God in Heaven.
