Pres. Trump to debate Hidin’ Biden tonight

October 22, 2020

Tune in: Thurs. Oct 22, 2020  • 6:00 PM MST

This evening the second and final debate featuring the President of the United States and a shell of a man, struggling to articulate a cogent thought. While President Trump has been crisscrossing the country meeting with thousands of loyal supporters, Democrat Joe Biden has remained holed up in his basement trying to memorize short phrases fed to him by his staff.

There is no doubt moderator NBC’s Kristen Welker will be biased, as was the case at the recent town hall with Savannah Guthrie who glaringly displayed her anti-Trump antagonism. Welker’s parents, Julie and Harvey Welker, have donated tens of thousands of dollars on 205 separate occasions to Democrat candidates including Joe Biden, according to data from the Federal Election Commission.

Still, the Commission on Presidential Debates refers to itself as “nonpartisan,” which is obviously not the case.

Trump has momentum on his side, with four years of astounding accomplishments (click on year and month) and a historically high economy, creating a rising tide for Americans, until the Chi-Com lab- created viral pandemic hit. Recovery is underway as Pres. Trump recently illustrated with his own rapid recuperation which will translate to the reopening of businesses to reinvigorate the economy.

Lethargic Biden, clearly a placeholder for VP candidate Kamala Harris, has run a virtual campaign, dodging looming questions about his son Hunter‘s exceedingly profitable, nefarious Ukrainian dealings, his support of statehood for Puerto Rico and D.C.— adding four new Dem senators — his intention to pack the U.S. Supreme Court by expanding it to include more than nine justices, or stop fracking as he bows to the extremist Green New Deal. Biden either vacillates or holds out a vague promise of letting us know, “soon.” Cluelessly, Biden has repeatedly promised to raise taxes, eliminating Trump‘s tax cuts.

Victor Davis Hanson suggests this type of concise wrap-up as a summation tonight:

“Whatever your politics, join me in restoring our institutions. Americans, left or right, Republican or Democrat, cannot remain free if our traditional and social media are not independent and fair. None of us will have a future if our elite collude with China to further its interests over ours. Without the police, none of us are safe, in the inner city or the suburbs. And we all want Washington officials to serve Americans, not waste our precious resources trying to destroy them. Don’t help Joe Biden make America into something it never was and must never be.”


AZ Republic continues to ignore Biden scandal, big tech censorship

October 21, 2020

Facts don’t fit Biden-promoting agenda as big tech now censors online content to influence 2020 election

Out in Arizona’s scorching hinterlands, where the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating leftist Arizona Republic is a failing disappointment, we have been too busy providing a conservative perspective to pay attention to the cosmopolitan New York Post.

That changed last week when it broke the report on Joe Biden being caught in a massive cash for influence scandal. SRAZ linked to the NY Post’s coverage and became instant fans. Arizona’s local newspaper still has not written a single word about Joe and Hunter Biden’s disgraceful but profitable influence peddling scheme, even as the damning evidence has mounted.

With this as background, today we urge our readers to read Michael Goodwin’s column,Media, Big Tech let Bidens sin and grin while vilifying The Post.”

Big tech giants, Google, Facebook and Twitter are now censoring content that doesn’t advance their radical agenda. They have blocked political news from the New York Post, the nation’s oldest continuously published daily newspaper — founded by Alexander Hamilton in 1801. The Post’s op-ed editor Sohrab Ahmari reports that Chinese nationals have been recruited as social-media censors. Why would there be any legitimate reason for these immense companies to have veto power over legitimate American political news?

Reuters News covers the U.S. Justice Department filing an antitrust lawsuit against Alphabet Inc’s Google on Tuesday, charging the $1 trillion company uses its market power to fend off rivals and said nothing was off the table — including a breakup of the internet search and advertising company. It’s a fact-filled report and well worth 5-minutes of your time.

The evidence is clear. We live in perilous times. It’s imperative we stay informed. Early balloting is currently underway and Election Day is Nov. 3. The importance of this election cannot be overstated. President Donald Trump must be reelected along with every other Republican on the ballot. Our future is at stake.

Trump visits Prescott, Tucson; touts McSally, 2nd Amendment

October 20, 2020

President Trump cast a wide net over Arizona Monday, holding airport rallies at the Prescott Regional Airport and Tucson Jet Center, as he addressed thousands of enthusiastic supporters chanting, “Four more years!”

The president, challenged by Democrat political has-been Joe Biden, warned his Prescott audience that Democrat Mark Kelly, running against incumbent Republican Arizona Sen. Martha McSally will “vote to take away your guns” if elected.

Kelly, a staunch gun control advocate founded Giffords PAC (Previously known as Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC) connected to Act Blue, an organization under the mammoth umbrella of Socialist George Soros. Act Blue has held D.C. fundraisers for Kelly. Giffords PAC donates hundreds of thousands to the campaigns of Democrat House and Senate Second Amendment restrictionists.

Soros has an agenda, as revealed by the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, “Anti-Gun Billionaire George Soros Pumps $18 Billion into His Political Apparatus.” The report is from 2017, so there is every likelihood the money has dramatically increased in the interim.

Acquaint yourself with the stark differences between Sen. Martha McSally and Mark Kelly as contrasted by the NRA political Victory Fund. McSally received an “A” rating.  Kelly scored an “F.”

President Trump, who has made a remarkable recovery from the COVID-19 virus, has resumed his campaign mode with renewed vigor. He knows, as America’s citizens do, how much is at stake in this presidential election.

There has not been a more crucial election in our lifetimes. Throughout recorded history there have been leaders who have risen to the occasion when they were needed. Businessman Donald Trump, a non-politician, responded to that need at exactly the right time. Under his leadership Americans prospered economically as never before. The Chi-Com lab constructed pandemic closed businesses and schools, negatively impacting the economy and our way of life. But just as Trump has recovered, so will our nation. 

Don’t just be sure to vote. Vote Republican and against the Democrat-led destructive ballot Propositions 207 and 208. It’s never been more important.

Feeble Joe Biden bolstered by failing comrade

October 19, 2020

Seeing Red AZ’s post,AZ Republic: Facts take back seat to anti-Trump agenda,” was a harsh rebuke of the local newspaper’s deceit in covering the biased NBC ambush of President Trump, posing as a “town hall.”

On its devious heels came the newspaper’s two-page article accompanied by a massive smiling halftone photo of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden beginning on the front page of the Sunday ‘Viewpoints’ section, titled, “How I would help Arizona as president.” It’s printed as a ‘Your Turn’ guest column, supposedly written by Joe Biden, who most of us thought has been in Washington nearly 50 years, but are ready to stand corrected. Slow Joe recently clarified that he’s actually been in the senate 180 years. (18-second video.)

There’s an ‘editor’s note’ attached, alleging “The Biden campaign offered this column for publication,” and claiming “The Republic has offered equal space to the Trump campaign.” On its face the claim is fallacious, not only because the editorial board of the seriously failing*newspaper has made no secret of being in the tank for the Biden/Harris ticket, but taking into consideration that early voting has been underway since October 7, and Election Day, Nov. 3, 2020, is just 15 days away. The Arizona Republic has steadfastly ignored the Hunter Biden Ukrainian scandal extensively covered by the New York Post, that implicates his father Joe.

The massive campaign ad posing as a column carries a tag line immediately under the headline claiming:

“We’ll work as hard for those who don’t support us as those who do. That’s the job of a president — the duty to care for everyone.”

Apparently the increasingly feeble Democrat candidate isn’t familiar with the duties of the president enumerated in Article II of the U.S. Constitution.

Nowhere does it state the president’s duty is to take care of our nation’s citizens. That is the right and obligation of each autonomous, able-bodied American. We are not wards of any president…especially one in need of a caretaker himself.

Today’s Wall Street Journal features a must-read editorial and accompanying video titled,The Cost of Bidenomics,A new study on Biden’s tax, health-care, energy and regulation proposals predicts $6,500 less in median household income by 2030, noting all income levels will see a tax increase to pay for Biden’s costly new regulations.

 Here’s Joe in his own words promising to raise taxes:

AZ Republic: Facts take back seat to anti-Trump agenda

October 18, 2020

Fake news on steroids as reporter Richard Ruelas blatantly lies about President Trump

In a vicious, biased ambush NBC billed as a “town hall” last Thursday, host Savannah Guthrie, who actually likened the President of the United States to “someone’s crazy uncle,” tried in vain to link him to white supremacy and QAnon, a convoluted conspiracy theory group. Guthrie repeatedly interrupted the president as he attempted to respond. According to this interrupter calculator video (visible at end of post) it was an inconceivable 61 times.

“I denounced white supremacy, OK? I’ve denounced white supremacy for years. You didn’t ask Joe Biden whether or not he denounces Antifa,” President Trump shot back.

Guthrie, whose husband, Michael Feldman, is a longtime democrat operative previously associated with the Clinton administration, continued to push about QAnon, “You do know!” she snapped.

“I don’t know! I don’t know!” the president adamantly insisted. Visibly annoyed at this persistent hammering about a group he denied having either association with or knowledge about, he sarcastically declared, “Let’s waste the whole show!”

“What I do know about, I know about Antifa and I know about the radical left, and I know how violent they are and how vicious they are. I just don’t know about QAnon.”

With this heated exchange as background, fast forward to Saturday’s edition of the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic, the failing, purveyor of fake news. Under the headline, “QAnon conference Saturday at an Arizona resort,” myopic reporter Richard Ruelas opens his farce posing as a news account with these words, “Fresh off being praised by President Donald Trump at his town hall-style interview this week….”

Truth has no relevancy at the local newspaper. It is nothing more than a tentacle of the Democrat Party apparatus which is why it‘s hemorrhaging subscriptions. If you are among the few who still subscribe, quit! The phone number is 1-800-332-6733. Your money can be better spent.

Dems attacking Judge Amy Barrett have forgotten Obama’s words

October 17, 2020

“Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won.” Pres. Barack Obama to House Republican Whip Eric Cantor

— January 23, 2009.

Americans have been watching the senate confirmation hearing of 7th U.S. Circuit Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett, 48, President Donald Trump’s most recent nominee — his third — to the U.S. Supreme Court following Neil Gorsuch (2017) and Brett Kavanaugh (2018).

A more accurate description of the lurid, vile line of questioning hurled at this stellar federal appellate judge would be, “disgraceful spectacle.”

Her faith has been denigrated, as has her family of seven children, two of whom she and her lawyer husband adopted from Haiti. Her answers to intentionally contorted questions have been met with graceful wisdom.

Notre Dame Law School Professor O. Carter Snead described his former student using these words:

“There’s just consensus: Amy Barrett, is the best student, the smartest and most talented person to ever come through the University of Notre Dame Law School.”

Such praise does not dissuade the leftist minority members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who are in a frenzy, as illustrated by Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) who put her boorish partisanship on display when she asked:

“Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors, or committed any physical or verbal harassment or assault of a sexual nature?” As if that wasn’t enough, Hirono continued, “Have you ever faced discipline or entered into a settlement related to this kind of conduct?”

Barrett’s judicial philosophy was secondary to Hirono’s futile efforts to confound her. Other democrats engaged in similar contrivances to no avail

Both absurd questions received a respectful, “No, Senator” response.

Democrats are enraged that Judge Barrett, a former Notre Dame law professor, considered former Justice Antonin Scalia, for whom she clerked, a mentor. The vacancy she has been nominated to fill was created by the recent death of 87-year-old Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a deeply rooted liberal, who early in her career had been chief counsel for the ACLU. Still, she respected and enjoyed a friendship with constitutional originalist Scalia, despite their philosophical differences.

This was the bi-partisan roll call vote when Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals by the U.S. Senate October 31, 2017.

Expect underhanded deceit this time around. The judiciary committee is set to vote on October 22, meaning the senate can’t formally begin to consider Judge Barrett’s nomination until October 23. Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, would then have to move the Senate into executive session, which requires a vote. Democrats are poised to thwart the process by not having a quorum present, which The Daily Wire reports Senate Minority Leader Democrat Chuck Schumer has threatened.

Mark Kelly forced to apologize for anti-police press spokesman

October 16, 2020

Arizonans who watched Republican Sen. Martha McSally debate Soros-funded Dem challenger Mark Kelly know his often repeated line, memorized and recited by rote like a school boy, was “My parents were both police officers.”

How odd then, that he is now apologizing for his deputy press spokesman T.J. L’Heureux’s obscene twitter comment about police. Kelly, with deep business and financial ties to Communist China, apologized Thursday for  L’Heureux’s earlier tweet calling Chicago officers “worthless f—ing pigs.”

The obviously unvetted radical L’Heureux who previously was a press advisor for former 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, is getting passed around like a damp towel in a San Francisco bathhouse.

L’Heureux’s tweet, clearly revealing his true feelings, was posted a week before he was hired as Mark Kelly’s deputy press spokesman…now being referred to as a “junior staffer.” It came in response to a video showing Chicago officers seizing open umbrellas from pillaging street thugs during a violent encounter as the mob worked to topple a statue of Christopher Columbus. A city official later stated the BLM protesters and Antifa had used the umbrellas as weapons and to shield their faces from view as they pelted police with frozen water bottles, bricks, rocks, pipes and explosive fireworks. Forty-nine police officers were injured, many seriously.

Had any of those officers had been Mark Kelly’s mother or father, we would hope his response would have been less insipid. But bought-and-paid-for candidate Kelly can’t veer too far from the Dem’s party line, which vilifies and calls for defunding our dedicated police — intertwined with his own anti-Second Amendment Giffords PAC agenda, which leave law-abiding Americans as vulnerable sitting ducks.

The “worthless f—ing pigs” post was removed Thursday morning from L’Heureux’s account, which was then made private. He also needs to be removed from Kelly’s payroll.


Biden caught in cash for influence scandal

October 15, 2020

Not a single word of this scandal was reported by the Joe Biden-supporting Arizona Republic

The New York Post broke a mega story Wednesday connecting the vehemently denied dots directly linking Hunter Biden and his then-Obama Vice President dad, Joe Biden, to influence peddling at the top levels in the Ukrainian government.

The shocking report filled with damning documents and photos exposed by reporters Emma-Jo Morris and Gabrielle Fonrouge is headlined,Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad.” The report was censored by leftwing Twitter and Facebook.

Hunter Biden, a less than classy individual, introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at Burisma Holdings a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The NY Post.

Hunter Biden, a known crack cocaine addict, was on the Burisma board from 2014 to 2019 after being kicked out of the Navy Reserve in 2013 due to his addiction. At the time Burisma was engulfed in a corruption investigation while his father was heading the Obama administration’s effort to curb Ukraine’s widespread corrupt dealings, creating a clear conflict of interest.

Except for his father’s political prominence, there is no discernible reason for the younger Biden to have secured at seat on the board of disreputable Burisma. He does not speak Ukrainian and has no background in energy, yet his reported salary exceeded $50,000 a month.

Newly divorced, the then-father of three, romanced his dead brother’s widow before fathering a child with a stripper. He only fulfilled his child support obligations after a court order following DNA testing proved his paternity. Most recently, he married again after a 10-day courtship. They are now parents. Hunter has acknowledged six stints in rehab for alcoholism and addiction.

The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board:

“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the email reads.

An earlier email from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s No. 3 executive, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.

The blockbuster correspondence — which flies in the face of Joe Biden’s claim that he’s “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings” — is contained in a massive trove of data recovered from a laptop computer, unclaimed from a repair shop, which the shop owner turned over to authorities.

Irrelevant Cindy McCain channels jealous John

October 14, 2020

Donald Trump, a businessman with no previous political experience, is known far and wide as President of the United States. He accomplished what only 44 other men have done since George Washington was inaugurated April 30, 1789.  His successes on behalf of Americans have been unparalleled.

This fact continues to rankle Cindy McCain. Her now-deceased husband John, who had a lengthy career in D.C., ran for the presidency in 2000. He was so unpopular in his home state of Arizona, then-governor Jane Hull, a Republican, endorsed  George W. Bush, and was not reluctant to describe McCain‘s “flaring temper,” as a concerning disqualifier. Candidate McCain ultimately withdrew from the race. He reemerged as a presidential contender in 2008, losing to Democrat Barack Obama.

McCain, who reveled in his self-created “Maverick” image, earned the ire of state Republicans for his ongoing bonding with the left, and was censured by elected GOP leaders at their mandatory statutory meeting in 2016. He retaliated by waging a well-funded campaign, aided by wealthy San Francisco Obama donors, against the precinct committeemen and called scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton arock star he could support.”

Now his widow Cindy, poking her finger in the eye of the party he used to his advantage, has come out as a Biden supporter. Breitbart’s headline referring to her Tuesday appearance on The View is, Cindy McCain: Trump’s Rallies During Pandemic ‘All About Arrogance and Ego.’

Cindy, taking the place of her daughter, Mega, who is on maternity leave, whined, “To me, it’s a simple discussion. It’s all about arrogance and ego. This is not presidential. This has everything to do with a personal agenda, and that’s why we need a change. That’s exactly why we need Joe Biden in the White House to stop this and act with character and dignity and leadership and empathy more importantly. We’ve lost over 200,000 people in this country to COVID, and still, he does things like this in Florida. It’s outrageous.”

Jealousy is never attractive. It is even less so when it screeches from the grave and through McCain’s widow‘s bright red lips. The View’s Trump-hating co-hosts lapped it up.

John McCain’s mother, Roberta, who recently passed away at the age of 108, was more honest than her daughter-in-law, Cindy. This is what Mama McCain had to say about her disliked then-presidential candidate son:

When asked if her son can go on to be the GOP’s 2008 nominee, Roberta McCain said, “Yes, I think holding their nose they’re going to have to take him.” Click on the link for a priceless photo.

Judging the judges on your 2020 ballot

October 13, 2020

Judges preside over trials. In most cases, after hearing the evidence and deliberating at the conclusion of the trial, jurors deliver the verdict

Judges are once again on the ballot. They are not challenged by adversaries as others are, since they are not candidates. Having been vetted by judicial selection commissions and ultimately selected by a governor, their names appear for retention.

Merit Selection is in effect in Arizona counties reaching a 250,000 population threshold. Currently those counties include Coconino, Maricopa, Pima and Pinal. The other eleven counties have elections of judges.

There are pros and cons with each system, which is moot since Arizona voters authorized Merit Selection as Proposition 108, in 1974 (last page of the quaint, typed list) by a margin of 35,432 votes. It was later expanded, again by a vote of the people, to include more public members on the commission and give the chairing justice a vote.

Judging by searches coming into this site, Arizona voters are interested in how to “judge the judges.” Unfortunately, many of the lists floating around the Internet are undependable, using politics as the sole determiner. We all know how unreliable that can be. The U.S. Supreme Court stands as a stunning example. Pres. Ronald Reagan appointed Sandra Day O’Connor, who then reveled in being the swing vote on the court and as often as not, swung left. When George W. Bush named John Roberts as Chief Justice, conservatives cheered. We rued the day when he was the deciding vote in upholding Obamacare. Such examples stand as stark reminders that there is no simple barometer to gauge those in black robes.

Those putting the Arizona lists together have no knowledge of the capabilities of the judges. Most wouldn’t know a judge they denigrate if they were face to face. The lists are typically based on whether the specific judges were appointed by a Republican or Democrat governor. This is an erroneous assumption since prior to submitting their applications, judicial aspirants of both parties often change their political affiliations to correspond to that of the appointing governor. Governors also make cross-party appointments. Republican Gov. Jane Hull set heads spinning when she named her longtime friend Democrat Ruth McGregor as her first appointment to the Arizona Supreme Court.

The most reliable means of assessing judges is by taking the time to study the ratings put out by the Commission on Judicial Performance Review (JPR).

It’s hardly an “inside job,” worthy of suspicion. Survey forms are distributed to people who have contact with the judges including attorneys, jurors, litigants, witnesses, people who represent themselves in court, court staff, and other judges. The Commission holds public hearings every election year and accepts written comments from the public at any time.

Judges are also required to complete self-evaluations to rate their own performance. Additionally each judge is assigned to a Conference Team composed of one public volunteer, one attorney volunteer, and one judge volunteer. The Conference Team meets with the judge to review the Data Report.

Ousting judges is rare, but happens. In 1978 Court of Appeals Judge Gary Nelson was not retained. Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Fred Hyder was removed. Other judges have not been recommended for retention by JPR, but were still retained by voters.

Your best guide is to check out the ratings for all of the judges on the retention ballot, made available on the Judicial Performance Review site. Click on the individual judges names to get their complete rating information and bios. You’ll be far more informed than by giving any credibility to lists appearing in your email. The JPR lists are available here:
