Mark Kelly, AZ gun hypocrite, announces for US Senate

February 14, 2019

With brazen audacity oozing from every pore, leftist Democrat Mark Kelly has announced his entrance into the U.S. Senate race, mounting a challenge to Arizona incumbent Sen. Martha McSally. The Republican former congresswoman was appointed to the senate after placeholder and former senator, Jon Kyl stepped down. Kyl was appointed to temporarily fill the Senate vacancy following the death of John McCain.

Mark Kelly has ridden the unfortunate shooting of his wife, former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords like a steed, despite some major missteps. Though the two of them have been in the forefront of Second Amendment restrictions for the rest of us via their organization Americans for Responsible Solutions, which opposes concealed carry laws, and has now morphed into the $multi-million Giffords PAC.* Mark Kelly exempts himself from his desire to curtail our constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights. The PAC which claims to be bipartisan overwhelmingly endorses liberal Democrats, including the Virginia trio now negatively dominating the news for everything from infanticide protections, and racism to sexual assault: Gov. Ralph Northam, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and Attorney General Mark Herring.

In 2013, Breitbart News exposed Kelly making a private purchase of an AR-15, a.45 caliber semi-automatic pistol and “high capacity” magazines at Diamondback Police Supply, a Tucson gun store. After he was caught in the hypocrisy, he backtracked, saying he was not going to keep the AR-15, which he had not picked up from the store.

Democrats are nothing if not two-faced on the issue of guns. They want to rein in the rights of America’s gun owners, but desire easy access to self-protection for themselves. Our illustrative 2012 postDem gun hypocrites,” is proof positive.

The couple is also close to Barack Obama, another Second Amendment restrictionist…for others, though he exempts himself, as seen here.

Mark Kelly has had his share of captured-on-film woes involving not only “assault” weapons but also assault dogs as seen in this disturbing video. During a Kelly family vacation in the seaside resort community of Laguna Beach, his daughter’s 65-pound American Bulldog (a close relative of the notorious Pit Bull) leaped down upon a baby seal, mercilessly attacking and killing the defenseless animal.

Join the NRA to protect our inherent, constitutionally supported freedoms that Mark Kelly would decimate if elected.

AZ moves right: Kelli Ward wins GOP state chair

January 26, 2019

Propelled by a massive show of support at Arizona’s Republican statutory day-long Saturday meeting, Dr. Kelli Ward, a Trump-supporting conservative easily secured the party’s top leadership post.

Ward, a physician and former two-term state senator, addressed the jubilant crowd following the announcement of the vote totals. Having traveled the state as a U.S. Senate candidate, she secured a loyal following, trouncing incumbent chairman Jonathan Lines by over a hundred votes cast by elected state committeemen.  Doyel Shamley, unknown outside of Navajo County also entered the race, receiving only 65 votes.

incumbent chairman Lines running for reelection had an uphill battle after presiding over numerous losses of previously held Republican elected offices in the November 2018 election.

Following the vote, a petulant Lines abruptly left the meeting of 1,236 assembled state committeemen who traveled from every statewide county. He reportedly had to be cajoled into returning via a phone call exchange with the previous chairman Robert Graham.

Congressmen Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar and David Schweikert addressed the crowd, as did Congresswoman Debbie Lesko who spoke from D.C. on a video hookup. Newly appointed U.S. Senator Martha McSally, grossly misjudged the crowd as she spoke warmly of the “leadership of Jonathan Lines.”

Gov. Doug Ducey, who also spoke in support of Lines, summed up the feelings of many attendees, with this understatement, “Like you, I was disappointed that we fell short in some of the races.”

Yep.


McCain’s corruption still haunts AZ GOP in advance of state meeting

January 25, 2019

National publicity is the mother’s milk of those seeking to make an impact. And what is more important in the political realm than energizing the base as they gear up for the next election cycle?  Dirty laundry, it is said, should be aired in private. But when it is downright filthy, sunlight is the best disinfectant.

Gateway Pundit, a nationally well-respected conservative site provides that sunlight as it exposes the internecine chaos via a shocking, leaked, Arizona Republican Party internal memo which raises serious concerns about unethical use of party resources and systematic failures that Deputy Communications Director Robert Maxwell fears will lead to a loss in 2020. The two-page memo to Executive Director Kyle Pierce can be read here.

Which brings us to the Statutory Meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party on Saturday, January 26, 2019.  Elected state committeemen will, in turn, elect party officers and vote on resolutions. The magnitude of these events cannot be overstated as we approach the all important 2020 election cycle.

But all is not copacetic as the meeting date approaches. Current AZ GOP chairman Jonathan Lines, who oversaw unparalleled Republican losses in November, is shamelessly running for reelection. Two other lesser known men have been campaigning. All of them are linked to the establishment syndicate, with longtime ties to John McCain — and now, his surrogates. Lines was put in place by former chairman, Robert Graham, a slickster still pulling Lines’ strings.  Lines lives nearly 200 miles away in Yuma, runs a roofing business, parents his 11 children and seldom shows up at the once vibrant Republican headquarters. The phones are rarely answered and messages are returned with the same infrequency.  Pressure to exit has been applied to candidate Frank Thorwald who works with Graham. He is now dutifully falling in line with Lines.

As pointed out in this post-election report, the red state of Arizona is now veering purple, having lost a U.S. Senate seat, Secretary of State — next in line of ascendancy to the governor, Superintendent of Public Instruction, and one of the two seats on the utility rate-setting Corporation Commission. Greg Stanton, the leftist former mayor of Phoenix won in Congressional District 9. Dems now hold five of Arizona’s nine CD seats.

Republicans Paul Gosar (CD-4), Andy Biggs (CD-5), David Schweikert (CD-6), and Debbie Lesko (CD-8) are currently the minority in the delegation.

Fortunately, there is an outstanding choice to lead the Arizona Republican Party. Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and constitutional conservative who served two terms in the state senate. She’s rock solid, has no puppet master and needs no learning curve. Arizona’s political future depends on getting this right.

Pres. Bush “41” dies in Texas at age 94

December 1, 2018

June 12, 1924   – November 30, 2018

The Houston Chronicle reports on the life and political history of George H. W. Bush, a single term Republican president. Many remember him dooming his second term presidential aspirations with this now famous 1988 statement:Read my lips, no new taxes! It was a pledge he reneged on amid looming budget deficits and fierce Democrat opposition.

Bush “41” was a two-term Vice President to President Ronald Reagan.  During his own presidency, he made a positive impact on the U.S. Supreme Court when he appointed federal appeals court judge Clarence Thomas as an associate justice in 1991.

A World War II hero and patriarch of a political dynasty, he was the father of President George W. Bush and Florida Governor “Jeb” Bush, who lost his own bid for the presidency.

The George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation has his complete biography and his “official obituary.”
