America First “unpatriotic, half-baked nationalism,” says McCain

Ailing award recipient can’t resist taking potshots at President Trump

The National Constitution Center reports Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) was awarded its Liberty Medal on Monday. Barack Obama’s former Vice President Joe Biden presented the award to his “longtime friend” McCain. The medal, awarded annually since 2006, is “given to men and women of courage and conviction who have strived to secure the blessings of liberty to people the world over.”

That description would certainly fit the contemptible and jealous ASS. He even deprecates and works to purge conservative elected Republicans from the party under whose banner he has chosen run.

During the ceremony McCain, who is suffering from an aggressive form of brain cancer, stated:

“To fear the world we’ve organized and led for 3/4s of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain the last, best hope of earth, for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism, cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”

This is classic McCain, using any occasion, even one intended to honor him, to underhandedly jab President Donald Trump — who won the presidency that will forever elude 81-year-old ASS — with the slogan “Make America Great Again.”

On its website the Center states that seven recipients of the medal have subsequently won the Nobel Peace Prize. Proving the Peace Prize is purely political, within months of being elected Barack Obama was a questionable recipient, having accomplished nothing of significance other than being the first black American president. He joined Palestinian terrorist leader Yasser Arafat, who won the Peace Prize in 1994. Arafat was better known for orchestrating the PLO bombing of Israeli school buses, instituting an ongoing reign of terror and colluding in directing the brutal massacres of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany.

In 2015, Geir Lundestad the former Nobel Secretary related that he regretted Obama’s award, which he said raised questions, even among Obama’s supporters. ASS was an Obama supporter even as he was the Republican nominee challenging Obama.

AZ Republic fixates on pervert’s rehab;Trump’s tax redo? 0

October 12, 2017

Left-wing newspaper disregards conservative president’s tax overhaul

The Arizona Republic has taken a breather from its incessant Trump-bashing to focus on a serial sexual predator. But does anyone really care about the license plate on the van transporting Harvey Weinstein to the Van Nuys airport? Are you concerned about the model of  the private jet he was flying  to a Wickenburg, Arizona rehab for sex addicts, or to whom it was registered? The state’s  newspaper of record seems to think this is newsworthy.

Prestige, power and money — lots of it —  make the unappealing strangely compelling, especially when the aggressive predator was a high dollar honcho in Democrat circles. Open Secrets lists the 185 individual political donations Weinstein has made. His predilections were well-known and ignored by Hollywood elites and the Dem recipients, who didn’t want the money train to stop.

President Trump is dedicating his energies to tax reform, a major issue that resonates with American taxpayers, though it doesn’t have the salacious  aura of Weinstein, an Oscar-winning producer, spending decades hitting on alluring Hollywood stars, on the rise or already there. It took Hillary Clinton, supposedly the great women’s advocate,  nearly a week to denounce her prolific donor’s debauchery.

Ignore the garbage, just as you ignored the recipients of Weinstein’s largesse.

With these words: “Your government is working for you once again, not for the donors, not the special interests, but the hardworking taxpaying citizens of our country” — President Trump outlined his bold plan to lower rates for Americans in every tax bracket, simplify the tax code, and reduce the U.S. corporate tax rate, which is one of the highest in the world. There is no rational argument against keeping more money in the hands of those who earned it.


PRESIDENT TRUMP PARDONS SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO

August 25, 2017

Former Maricopa County Sheriff remains  a hero to many

President Donald Trump, fresh off a visit to Arizona on Tuesday evening, has announced that he has pardoned longtime Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.  The former sheriff who was reelected to six four-year terms was found guilty of a misdemeanor criminal contempt conviction in federal court. The charges, which many viewed as the culmination of a witch hunt, stemmed from his office’s enforcement of the law relating to illegal immigration.

Sheriff Arpaio had been denied the jury trial he and his lawyers requested and the verdict was handed down by Federal District Judge Susan Bolton who served as judge and jury in the case.

A statement issued by the White House Friday night said, “Today, President Donald J. Trump granted a Presidential pardon to Joe Arpaio, former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona.”

President Trump hinted that the  pardon was forthcoming at the Phoenix rally Tuesday night.

The President previously referred to Arpaio as a “a great American patriot” who has done “a lot in the fight against illegal immigration.”

At the Phoenix event the president asked the massive crowd of supporters: “Do the people in this room like Sheriff Joe?” His question was greeted by cheers and applause from the thousands of people who filled the Phoenix Convention Center to capacity. “You know what, I’ll make a prediction: I think he’s going to be just fine,” Trump said. “But I won’t do it tonight, because I don’t want to cause any controversy.”

The statement issued by the White House enumerated Sheriff Arpaio’s lifelong commitment to the law:

“Arpaio’s life and career, which began at the age of 18 when he enlisted in the military after the outbreak of the Korean War, exemplify selfless public service. After serving in the Army, Arpaio became a police officer in Washington, D.C. and Las Vegas, NV and later served as a Special Agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), formerly the Bureau of Narcotics. After 25 years of admirable service, Arpaio went on to lead the DEA’s branch in Arizona.

“In 1992, the problems facing his community pulled Arpaio out of retirement to return to law enforcement. He ran and won a campaign to become Sheriff of Maricopa County. Throughout his time as Sheriff, Arpaio continued his life’s work of protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is now eighty-five years old, and after more than fifty years of admirable service to our Nation, he is worthy candidate for a Presidential pardon.”

We couldn’t agree more!


AZ’s senior senator (ASS) pushes new amnesty scheme

August 4, 2017

This comes a day after Pres. Trump outlined his wise plan based in US interests

 Keeping his campaign promise to the American people, President Trump is taking decisive action against illegal immigrationOn Wednesday, along with sponsoring Sens. Tom Cotton and David Purdue, Trump announced support of the RAISE Act, a Senate bill that prioritizes English speaking immigrants with verifiable job skills who will contribute to our country.  —  meriting editorial praise from the conservative Washington Times.

 But the chief dissenter is not happy. It would be comical if not so serious.  Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS), suffering from what his doctors at Mayor Clinic have described as an “aggressive form of brain cancer,” expends time he should be spending with family, instead chomping at the bit to push through his repeatedly failed “comprehensive immigration reform.”  He makes his pathetic move a day after Pres. Trump’s announcement support of an immigration overhaul that benefits America

Yet fawning  USAToday. blasts, “McCain aims to revive immigration reform when he returns to Congress” There are several  operative words in the headline, alone. “Revive, immigration reform, and returns,” all fall into the category of questionable.  The Gannett Inc.  twin Arizona Republic headlines, “McCain’s next big move” referring to his traitorous deciding vote against efforts to reform Obamacare.

 ASS has been focused on granting the gift of amnesty to illegal aliens since working feverishly on the issue with former Sen. Jon Kyl. Americans across the country rose up in protest of their failed bill, tying up hone lines and clogging Fax machines.

He has said he is fulfilling a promise made to Democrat Ted Kennedy. ASS and Jeff Flake, both antagonists of President Trump, previously orchestrated the infamous Gang of Eight bill, with two other RINOs and four full fledged radical leftists — led by Chuck Schumer. It also failed.

Numbers USA endorses the RAISE Act.


Charlatan Jeff Flake hurls insults, trolls for Soros’ $$

August 3, 2017

Breitbart reports that Jeff Flake — now out of the closet as a craven liberal — readily embraces being labeled a “globalist.” In his book with the filched title, Flake goes long on an explanation laden with linguistic and statistical gyrations to justify his leftward lurch. His ghost writer concludes with a dash of flaky bravado, “Given the alternatives, I’ll take the globalist moniker, thank you.”

As you read Tony Lee’s report, keep some facts in mind:

Flake doesn’t mind insulting conservative Republicans or the president of the United States, who he loudly proclaimed he would not vote for.

Immediately after the votes were counted after his first senate race, Flake joined his mentor John McCain attempting to ram through yet another congressional amnesty scam with Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, other prominent liberals and Republicrats known as the Gang of Eight. Jeff Flake and John McCain  (click links) each ran as border hawks, quickly reverting back to their shameful job destroying amnesty of illegals position.

Multibillionaire George Soros, the Socialist one-worlder with a massive agenda to radically change the U.S.  Justice system, has shoveled $millions to left-wing candidates. McCain and Hillary Clinton have been longtime recipients of his largesse. Jeff Flake, currently sitting atop a mountain of lobbyist and special interest cash, wants even more. As he continually denigrates the very base from whom he expect to pull votes, money spent on deceptive advertising can buy enough campaign induced amnesia to make them forget what they were angry about.  It’s a political take on an old magicians trick known as ‘misdirection.’

When it’s all boiled down to its essence, know this: Jeff Flake regards with suspicion those of us who voted for Donald Trump for president. He refers to us derogatorily as ‘populists’ rather than Republicans, and though he has proven otherwise over again, he calls himself a conservative, since that term garners votes from those who aren’t paying attention to what he actually is.

 Flake’s latest hammer is calling those of us who desire a secure border “xenophobic,” though we are not fearful, just fed up. He has also hurled the fabricated word “nativist” beloved by Democrats, for being desirerous of wanting to retain our uniquely American history and language — both of which have been embraced by actual immigrants who gratefully assimilate into American culture.

Keeping his campaign promise to the American people, President Trump is taking decisive action against illegal immigration. On Wednesday, along with sponsoring Sens. Tom Cotton and David Purdue, Trump announced support of the RAISE Act, a Senate bill that prioritizes English speaking immigrants who demonstrate job skills and will contribute to our country —  meriting editorial praise from the Washington Times.

It’s all happening despite Jeff Flake withholding his support of the president and engaging in puerile name calling.

It’s time Arizona Republicans return the favor and withhold our votes from Jeff Flake.

 

 


Chaotic musical chairs,Shakespearean style backstabbing in the West Wing & UPDATE

July 29, 2017

Chief of Staff Reince Priebus out, Scaramucci falls short in communications department

 Anthony Scaramucci, the White House communications director on the job for a week, let go with a barrage of blue language that might even make even the most uncouth blush.

In a profanity-laced tirade on a phone call to New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza, Scaramucci railed about “leakers,” hurling vicious barbs at Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff and Steve Bannon, President Trump’s chief strategist, while issuing threats of firing “everyone.”

“What I’m going to do is, I will eliminate everyone in the comms team and we’ll start over,” Scaramucci was quoted as saying.

Angry about Lizza’s report of a private White House dinner Scaramucci threatened, “They’ll all be fired by me. I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you.”

 Scaramucci is a Harvard educated lawyer who worked for Goldman-Sachs early in his financial career. Politically, he’s been all over the map, endorsing Jeb Bush prior to joining Trump’s presidential campaign team. He co-chaired Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential finance committee and is liberal on social issues, advocating for same-sex marriage and restrictive gun laws. Going back to 2015, he has been critical of Trump, disparaging his stated intent to build a wall along our southern border. He donated to the campaigns of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Press secretary Sean Spicer resigned after President Trump appointed Scaramucci, as his communications director, who would bypass Spicer and report directly to the president. Spicer had previously worked for the Republican National Committee, which Priebus chaired.

And Reince Priebus — a man with political contacts and insider knowledge worth their weight in gold? He was unceremoniously pushed out as White House chief of staff Friday, resigning, with grace and kind words for the president. Priebus was replaced by John Kelly, the secretary of homeland security and retired four-star Marine general.

President Trump has unfairly endured more vitriol from the leftwing, Hillary-supporting  media than any of his predecessors, yet he needs to remain steady. Conservatives can only hope this is the end of the shuffling and oustings, and that U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions  — a man  with outstanding credentials, continues to disregard the verbal slings and arrows and stays on the job.

The Shakespearean tragedy “Macbeth,” written in the early 1600’s, demonstrated that catering to political whims based in the notion of a divine right of the reining monarch can have disastrous results. Those of us who support President Trump see the need for impulse control.

July 29, 2017:

Scaramucci out within days — a mere 250 hours — of his appointment as White House communications director

Retired General John Kelly, President Trump’s new chief of staff, firmly asserted his authority on his first day in the White House stating he will impose military discipline in the chaotic West Wing. He underscored his intent by firing classless Anthony Scaramucci, the bombastic communications director, 10 days after he was hired. Scaramucci disgracefully distinguished himself with an x-rated and threat filled  rant (linked in original post above) at a reporter regarding a leak naming dinner guests at a small gathering with the president.


Sen. John McCain diagnosed with brain cancer

July 19, 2017

Reported to be a particularly aggressive type of malignancy

At the request of Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and his family, Mayo Clinic released the following statement today:

“On Friday, July 14, Sen. John McCain underwent a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot.

“Scanning done since the procedure (a minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision) shows that the tissue of concern was completely resected by imaging criteria.

“The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation. 

“The Senator’s doctors say he is recovering from his surgery ‘amazingly well’ and his underlying health is excellent.”

The office of Senator John McCain also released the following statement:

“Senator McCain appreciates the outpouring of support he has received over the last few days. He is in good spirits as he continues to recover at home with his family in Arizona. He is grateful to the doctors and staff at Mayo Clinic for their outstanding care, and is confident that any future treatment will be effective. Further consultations with Senator McCain’s Mayo Clinic care team will indicate when he will return to the United States Senate.”

Because glioblastomas can grow rapidly, the most common symptoms are usually caused by increased pressure in the brain. These symptoms can include headache, seizures, nausea, vomiting, and drowsiness.

Depending on the location of the tumor, patients can develop a variety of other symptoms such as weakness on one side of the body, memory and/or speech difficulties, hearing and vision loss, according to the American Brain Tumor Association website.

Glioblastoma can be difficult to treat because the tumors contain so many different types of cells, the association says.

The Hill carries this account of John McCain’s condition.

The Tucson Daily Star reports on a “malignant brain tumor.”

The Arizona Republic refers to a “brain tumor.”
