Matt Salmon: lost Gov’s race to dem in 2002, back again

June 30, 2021

Republican State Treasurer Kimberly Yee is the top choice for conservatives

The list of those tossing their hats in Arizona’s gubernatorial ring is growing. Mercifully, Gov. Doug Ducey, a McCain loyalist, is term limited. The list of candidates aspiring to assume the Ninth Floor office grows as quickly as the inflated egos of many of the hopefuls. Among them, newsreader Kari Lake who worked for a local television station, and Karrin Taylor Kunasek Robson, married to developer Ed Robson, whose political donations to Ducey ensured her a seat on the AZ Board of Regents. Steve Gaynor, who previously waged an unsuccessful bid for Secretary of State has now announced.

Former Congressman Matt Salmon leads the list of head scratching aspirants. He is notable for losing the governor’s race in 2002 to radical leftist Janet Napolitano, who then left midterm to join the Obama administration as Director of Homeland (in)Security. Her lack of commitment for that post was best summed up in her own quote regarding Arizona’s porous border as governor: “Show me a 50-foot wall and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder.” Napolitano was succeeded by then-Secretary of State, Republican Jan Brewer.

Salmon went on to lobbying, equivocating, denying, then admitting, his involvement in what became known as Obamacare, as reported by the New Times in 2012. Although he refers to himself as a “proven and committed conservative fighter for Arizonans,” he never touches the fact that before he lobbied on behalf of ASU and was involved in the controversial Confucius Institute, covered by the Arizona Daily Independent. His most unsavory gig was hawking e-cigarettes as the President of the Electronic Cigarette Association. Not surprisingly, the site has been taken down, but the harmful effects of vaping, which has become increasingly popular with teens who opt for flavored products, is as dangerous as cigarette smoking. As a member of the LDS Church, Salmon obviously knows that use of tobacco products are in direct opposition to the church’s Doctrine and Covenants (Section 89), which he arrogantly disregards.

The current updated list of official 2022 candidates can be seen on Ballotpedia.

The conservative with an actual track record is former state Representative and Senator and current AZ State Treasurer Kimberly Yee.  Read her remarkable accomplishments on behalf of the people of Arizona. She’s a wife, mother of two, smart, knowledgeable and has a proven track record of service, winning every election in which she has run. She was tapped to speak at the 2016 Republican National Convention (link). Her brief convention speech is well worth watching.


Biden, dems, impose fed. power over local zoning laws

June 29, 2021

Comply or lose gov’t funding…our own money…as voter demographics are altered

Many Americans choose to live in the suburbs and endure the longer drive to the city center where their jobs are often located. It’s a trade-off they opt to make. They want the openness of suburbia, a yard, maybe a pool; a place where their kids can walk safely to a neighborhood school, and a nearby park. Their grandparents, frequently immigrants or a generation or two away, often lived in big cities, dense with low-rent, high-rise apartments and tough neighborhoods.

Their educated and upwardly mobile descendants were able to use their earned resources to relocate. Being Americans gives us the freedom to decide where we live.  Or so we thought.

It turns out democrats have other plans in mind.

When President Donald Trump warned about the democrats’ plan to “abolish” suburbs by infusing low income, high density housing into established neighborhoods during a Phoenix rally, he was falsely accused of “race baiting.” National Review’s Stanley Kurtz wrote “Biden and Dems Are Set to Abolish the Suburbs,” verifying what many attendees remember.

Luke Rosiak writing for The Daily Wire has written an investigative report titled, “Stealth Goal Of Infrastructure Plan Could Be To Abolish The Suburbs By Bribing Towns To Change Zoning Laws,” that is sure to leave you wondering what’s going on.

The answer is power-hungry democrats now dominate Washington, D.C.

These reports are not something you should read. As a freedom loving citizen, they are something you must read. There is a method to what appears to be leftist madness. Infusions of democrats into GOP suburbs will unalterably change voting demographics. That’s plain to see with the democrat courting of illegal aliens.

The Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule, which Kurtz refers to as “radical,” was conceptualized during the Obama administration and carrying an effective date of July 31, 2021, requires local governments that receive federal funding to study racial bias in their housing patterns and develop plans to address it.

It’s a grotesque transmogrification of title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, 42 U.S.C. 3601-3619.

Get politically involved. Silence is acquiescence. Begin with your city council and state legislators. Time is short.


Biden admin.’s stunning hypocrisy on Mideast air strikes

June 28, 2021

Arizonans looking for facts regarding the Biden-ordered air strikes against Iran-backed militia in Iraq and Syria on Sunday evening will have to locate the information somewhere other than on the pages of the radically left-wing local newspaper which focuses on sports and diversity.

This Department of Defense statement notes the U.S. military targeted operational and weapons storage facilities at two locations in Syria and one location in Iraq.

The strikes came at the direction of Pres. Joe Biden‘s handlers, the second time his surrogates have ordered retaliatory strikes against Iran-backed militia since taking office five months ago. Biden last ordered strikes against a target in Syria in February, that time in response to rocket attacks in Iraq.

Military action is often necessary to secure our troops and aid our allies. It’s the predictable hypocrisy that warrants scrutiny.

The U.K.’s Daily Mail provides this exposé, reporting that the views were decidedly different when President Trump authorized military action.

Four years ago, Biden’s mouthpiece Jen Psaki — formerly Obama’s Communications Director — tweeted her dismay at Trump-sanctioned air strikes on the very same country which her boss approved a bombing raid last night.

“What is the legal authority for strikes? Assad is a brutal dictator. But Syria is a sovereign country,” Psaki wrote in April, 2017.

In June 2019, Biden referred to President Trump as “erratic” and “impulsive” for taking the same actions his administration is now taking.

Kamala Harris’ quick Mexico trip: I came, I saw, arrivederci

June 27, 2021

Leftist immigration policy has predictably dire border consequences

VP Kamala Harris finally took a sanitized trip to El Paso on Friday, three months after she was named the border czarina by Pres. Joe Biden, and facing mounting pressure for not attending to business, to which she cackled in response. She briefly visited an ICE facility, staying out of the sun and avoiding the harsh reality of a steady stream of illegal aliens crossing into the United States. A recent headline following her trip? “More migrants will now get 2nd chance at asylum.”

With audacity in abundance, she actually stated the Biden administration had made progress tackling the “tough situation we inherited.”

Apparently the Vice President, who has steadfastly avoided the border since her March 24 appointment to oversee the calamitous situation, has forgotten that border wall construction was an issue that President Trump campaigned on and was elected to fulfill. Progress was being made until Biden’s surrogates authorized dismantling of completed wall sections and a halt to new construction, creating the current crisis.

Since Biden has undone the effective policies from Day One of his administration, illegal aliens have crossed the southern border at a record rate of nearly 180,000 per month, according to data supplied by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

On his first day in office, signing myriad pre-prepared leather bound executive orders, Biden also overturned President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, affecting illegals awaiting immigration decisions. In the ensuing months, unaccompanied minors, being exploited by transporting drug cartels have become a major problem at the border. Kamala Harris’ response? Listen.

Is it any wonder this June 23, Rasmussen Reports indicates 55 percent of voters support election audits?

          


Biden does Redford with a twist: He’s the Hoarse Whisperer

June 26, 2021

In 1998 a movie titled, The Horse Whisperer, starred Robert Redford when he was still recognizable. Redford played a horse trainer with a talent for understanding and communicating with horses.

America is witnessing its own version, with a twist. Pres. Joe Biden, who is no longer recognizable due to the blank stare in his eyes and his increasing tenancy to inappropriately shuffle off both subject and stage, is now trying to emulate Redford. Biden has bizarrely morphed into the Hoarse Whisperer. While in Great Britain recently addressing U.S. troops, his wife, Jill, had to admonish him, scolding, “Joe, pay attention!” (video under link) as he tuned his back to her as she spoke.

Biden then compounds the calamity by admitting, “I keep forgetting I’m president.” If this clearly diminished man is supposed to represent America on the world stage, we are in “big trouble” — as he often admits he is. But, with whom? He never says. Could he have abusive caretakers?


California: Where cows are smarter than voters

June 25, 2021

California stands as a pathetic example of what becomes of a state where voters have repeatedly elected radicals as governor,* U.S. Senators, (both are democrats), U.S. Representatives, (41 out of 53 are democrats), a disproportionately leftward state assembly/legislators (59 dems, 19 Republicans, 1 registered Independent) and state senators (31 dems, 9 Republicans).

If they are still capable of doing so, Californians should emulate dozens of mooing cows headed for the slaughterhouse. They have taken matters in their own hooves. Not willing to stand idly by awaiting their own demise, they made a run for it. CBS News provides coverage and video.

With democrats in control, it’s no surprise that California, at 13.3%, has the highest state income tax of any state.

*Arnold Schwarzenegger elected in 2003 was the last Republican governor. Current Gov. Gavin Newsom, a democrat, is facing a recall.

Biden nominates “humanitarian” Cindy McCain as ambassador

June 24, 2021

It comes as no surprise that Pres. Joe Biden is repaying Republicrat Cindy Lou Hensley McCain for her support of the democrat presidential ticket in 2020. He has nominated her to a Rome-based ambassadorship to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture.

Though she was embarrassingly unable to energize any supporters when campaigning for the Harris/OBiden duo, she persevered, due to her visceral jealousy-based hatred of conservative President Donald Trump. He was easily able to attain the presidency that had twice eluded her RINO* husband.

The far left local newspaper, along with democrat Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly have lavished praise on Cindy McCain, repeatedly referring to her as a “humanitarian.” Sinema couldn’t contain her enthusiasm, issuing a statement that noted, in part, that “Cindy McCain is a demonstrated humanitarian…and a terrific choice to combat famine and hunger crises around the world.

It must have slipped Sinema’s mind that “humanitarian” Cindy, then an addict, stole prescription opiates from her own medical aid charity.**

At the January 2021 Statutory Meeting of elected GOP state delegates, Cindy McCain was censured by the elected Republican delegates, replicating the 2014 censure of her late husband John, for his bonding to the left. Still stung by his intra-party rejections, the never-accused-of-being-intelligent Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship heiress tweeted, “It exposes for all to see the reckless selfishness of President Trump and the cynicism of elected Republicans, who defended his unconstitutional effort to cling to power. They have shamed our country, and delighted our enemies.”

Grant Woods, John McCain’s first chief of staff, and later elected as Attorney General as a Republican…who had signed on (click to enlarge) as a Republican for democrat Janet Napolitano…also jumped into “humanitarian” mode as he described Cindy. After years of threatening to reregister as a democrat he finally made good on his promise, to the delight of actual Republicans.

John McCain retaliated against the censuring delegates by working with wealthy out-of-state Obama allies to purge the Arizona Republican activists from their elected though unpaid posts.

GOP scores major victory defeating disastrous S.1

June 23, 2021

Leftist newspapers unified in their support of devious bill

This blatantly deceitful headline appeared in this morning’s Arizona Republic: “Sinema, Kelly back voting rights bill blocked by GOP.”

The newspaper best illustrates the depths to which it has sunken by skewing not only the news, but also the truth. H.R. 1, the House bill’s companion legislation was nearly 900 pages and unlikely read by any congressional members who were heralding it.

S. 1, the democrat backed bill, deceitfully titled, “For the People Act of 2021,” represented a major power grab and assault on the First Amendment, intended to give democrats total control over our election process, the federal government total control over state election laws, and, among other egregious proposals, precludes states from updating their own voter files as well as giving unspecified $millions of federal taxpayer subsidies to candidates to fund their campaigns. The bill, requiring no proof of the voter’s identity, expands voter registration (e.g., automatic and same-day registration) and voting access (e.g., vote-by-mail and early voting). It also limits removing voters from voting rolls, who have moved and are no longer eligible to vote in a specific precinct, benefiting democrat political incumbents. It drops the voter registration age to 16. And, of course, it would establish Election Day as a national holiday.

This list includes the “subject terms” that are assigned to S.1.

Read this illuminating opinion piece by Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), printed in USAToday, part of the same publishing network as the Arizona Republic. Sen Lee explains the nefarious scheme. The leftist newspaper leaves no doubt as to where it stands on the power grabbing legislation using a bold banner under the headline to assert its position.

This is the deceptively titled “For the People Act of 2021,” known as S.1. It is a companion piece to the House version, H.R. 1. Americans should be grateful for Republican diligence which has kicked it to the curb.
