AZ Primary Election Results – Aug. 28, 2018

August 28, 2018

Polls close tonight at 7 p.m., and continually updated results will be available after 8 p.m.

                       

The AZ Secretary of State’s Office has categorized the election results into FEDERAL, STATEand LEGISLATIVE races. 

Oddly, the links omit some of the candidates, who can only be seen by clicking on “view more.” The snafu plagued site, might explain why Secretary of State Michele Reagan is in the race of her life. It’s a repetition of her last election misadventures.  Reagan’s office, obviously anticipating problems on her watch, even put up an election night Help page that is sure to get a workout.

Of the early ballots mailed out in Maricopa County, approximately 44% were returned before election day.

Unhinged newspapers unite in conspiracy against Pres. Trump

August 11, 2018

Contending news outlets are not purveyors of fake news, despite evidence to the contrary, the Boston Globe is attempting to assemble other leftist newspapers to form a united pact taking editorial aim at President Trump’s characterization of the biased press. The Daily Caller headlined its coverage, Boston Globe Calls For All Media Outlets To Publish Anti-Trump Editorials Next Week.

As of Friday, about 70 publications committed to running editorials denouncing Trump’s honest assessment of the liberally skewed press — often referring to their content as “fake news.”  The coordinated attacks are set to launch August 16.

“Our words will differ. But at least we can agree that such attacks are alarming,” stated Marjorie Pritchard, the Boston Globe’s deputy managing editorial page editor.

MediaBias/Fact Check rates the Boston Globe, with a left-of-center bias. We’re unfamiliar with what this site considers to be out-of-bounds propagandizing, or if they would even recognize their own vulnerabilities. Since they post their methodology, we’ll give our readers the option to decide.

While claiming to be free of bias and above promoting deception, none of the newspapers touched on the fact that they overwhelmingly supported Hillary* in the 2016 election.

The Boston Globe, now with its back up over President Trump’s exposure of overwhelming unfair, frequently dishonest and biased coverage, endorsed Hillary in 2016 and Obama in 2012. 

Liberal bias, anyone?

Where are the reports of President Trump’s major achievements?

Citing numerous examples, the RNC released the winners of the past year’s Fake News Awards.

Unaware of their relevancy in this context over four hundred years later, Shakespeare best characterized the media’s shrill outburst with these words, spoken by Queen Gertrude in Hamlet, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”

Jim O’Connor, GOP candidate for Corp. Comm. scores ace endorser

August 3, 2018

Jim O’Connor is running for a seat on Arizona’s Corporation Commission. He’s a conservative with a professional résumé that clearly makes him a stand-out for the job. Check out his Issues page in which he decisively defines his objectives.

Foremost among its many duties, the Arizona Corporation Commission regulates utility rates. Integrity, which has been lacking in this important commission, is the paramount consideration. There is no question O’Connor posses that key quality. Running as a Clean Elections candidate, he refuses to take campaign contributions from utilities or those associated with them.

O’Connor is also uniquely accessible, posting his contact information on his website.

In a crowded field of candidates competing for two seats on the Arizona Corporation Commission, it’s clear why he’s scored big, winning an endorsement from Arizona’s conservative former congressman and media commentator, J.D. Hayworth.


AZ Republic pushes more liberal lunacy

July 13, 2018

Chamber of Commerce calls out Marxist agenda of teacher’s Socialist Pied Piper and gets hammered

When you’re an unrepentant liberal like the Arizona Republic’s editorialist Linda Valdez, playing games with words comes naturally. She advocates on behalf of physician assisted suicide, calling it, “a medically prescribed exit.” According to Valdez, denying this right is religion-based discrimination. “Suicide,” she claims, “is a loaded word that should be replaced with something less emotionally charged.” Most of the rest of us find it difficult to separate death from emotion. Another of her anti-faith offerings is, “Will the God Squad tale away your right to die.” Abortion on demand becomes “women’s health care.” There is nothing healthy about abortion — especially for the pre-born baby, who feels pain as he’s burned by chemicals or has his spinal cord severed and skull collapsed.  No wonder we need fabricated terminology to describe this horror.

Taxes?  “What’s wrong with Phoenix raising taxes?” is actually a headline topping one of her loads of drivel passing for a column.  Valdez is a staunch cradle to grave believer. With liberals, having the government provide for you throughout your lifetime is a belief comparable to the religious fervor she so disdains.

Valdez rails about illegals dying in the scorching desert heat, but places no blame on them for making unwise choices. They invade. They die. America is to blame.

She typifies the left-wing slant of the newspaper, which spews its outrage on Page One over what it apparently finds to be a slur in today’s edition. The leader of the striking teachers who abandoned their students for a week while violating their contractual agreements marching for a 20% pay increase is Noah Karvelis, 23, a self described Socialist, who was Bernie Sanders 2016 Arizona presidential campaign organizer. Sanders has no problem referring to himself as a Socialist. But when the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry issued this press release calling Karvelis out for addressing the 2018 Socialist convention in Chicago, that’s beyond the bounds of propriety. The leftist newspaper huffily declares it “offers a glimpse into the opposition strategy,”

After Gov. Ducey recklessly acquiesced to the teacher’s demands, they have come up with a Marxist redistribution of wealth scheme of placing hefty additional taxes on job creators they derisively call, “the rich.” It will be a ballot initiative in the form of an unalterable, permanent Constitutional Amendment with a permanent funding stream in addition to the others they already have 

Passage of ballot propositions — 301 in 2000 increasing the state sales tax and 123 in 2016 a grab from the state land trust — guaranteed more money for education, which apparently is never enough for the teachers who work 8½ months a year. School districts routinely hold budget overrides and bond elections to “get more money into the classroom” —- eduspeak for bolstering teacher’s salaries. A major premise of passing the Arizona Lottery in 1980 was that money from ticket sales would fund schools.

Don’t fall for the educrat extortionists latest ploy. This time the AZ Chamber of Commerce — an organization we’ve disagreed with on illegal immigration — is right on the money. 


Pres. Trump nominates Judge Brett Kavanaugh as next SCOTUS Justice

July 9, 2018

In a moving speech introducing Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, President Trump hit all the right notes. It will be difficult for the despairing Democrats to disparage this man, who by all accounts has an impeccable record of jurisprudence.

Prepare for the Left’s lies, which we’ve seen before and are now wise to their deceptive ways. President Ronald Reagan nominated Constitutional scholar and Appellate Court Judge Robert Bork to replace Justice Lewis Powell, July 1, 1987. Like Anthony Kennedy, who is currently retiring, Powell was considered a “swing vote.”

This is amoral Senator Ted Kennedy, savaging Robert Bork with blatant falsehoods. Rather than continue to be the target of the hostility directed at him, when a Supreme Court vacancy existed, the admirable Judge Bork withdrew his name from consideration.

Let these words flowing from the lips of Ted Kennedy sink in. The alcoholic womanizer left 28-year-old campaign worker Mary Jo Kopechne to drown in his car which he drove off a bridge at Chappaquiddick Island. He waited until the next morning to make an appearance, sobered up, wearing a neck brace, with a concocted cover story and accompanied by his long-suffering wife. His presidential aspirations died with the young teacher and political speechwriter.

“Robert Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, and schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the Government, and the doors of the Federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens.”

Arizonan Sandra Day O’Connor, a moderate Republican, and ultimately the court’s most aggressive swing vote — reveling in that position — was named the first woman to ascend to the U.S. Supreme Court. Bork became a verb.

President Trump and Senate Republicans, heed the words of Biblical prophet Jeremiah, and “gird your loins” for the battle that is sure to come. The sweet truth is, ultimately you will be victorious.
