Republicrat braintrusts Flake & Giles: GOP’s future is “toast”

November 19, 2017

Mesa Mayor Giles puts absurdity on display

Arizona short-term Senator Jeff Flake and his not too swift ally Mesa Mayor John Giles were caught on a hot mic Friday discussing the state of the Republican Party. ABC 15 carries the exclusive report. (must see video).

With his inane smirk firmly in place, anti-Trumper Jeff Flake definitively declares, “it’s toast.”

And the mayor?  After calling President Trump an “idiot,“ Giles tells Flake he is the only one who can save the GOP, and actually encourages Flake — who couldn’t win reelection in Arizona — to run for president in 2020. We couldn’t make this stuff up.

If the size of the ‘crowd’ they were addressing is any indicator, both of these men ought to consider another line of work.  Their negative message is not catching on.

Giles, who glowingly endorsed John McCain, obviously has a penchant for exhibiting faulty judgment.

It must have slipped Giles mind that Trump won the Republican nomination over 16 other primary candidates in 2016. Even with massive assists from John McCain and Jon Kyl, who was retiring, Jeff Flake barely squeaked into office with a slim 3-point lead over Democrat Richard Carmona, George W. Bush’s surgeon general. Now after six years of deception, and going against the conservative tide, amnesty proponent Flake can barely muster pulse rate polling numbers, which is why he has opted out of running for reelection. That preemptive action beats an embarrassing trouncing any day of the week.

Flake scored a pathetic 25 percent favorability rating among Republican primary voters in this poll by GBA Strategies, with a 56 percent unfavorable rating. Over half — 59% — of Arizona voters disapprove of the job Flake is doing, and only 34 percent approved. 

Conservative Review gives Flake a bottom dragging “F” Liberty Score. He also ranked as themost unpopular senator in the nation,” as reported by AZFamily.com, Channel 3.

Like Jeff Flake, John Giles is also an alumnus of Brigham Young University. There must be nutcase nuggets tainting the water in Provo, Utah.

Jeff Flake does the expected: Supports Democrat

November 15, 2017

SRAZ has covered the suspiciously timed allegations aimed at former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, now running for the U.S. Senate in that state.

On Monday, Jeff Flake, who opted out of his own senate race in Arizona after being faced with the reality of abysmal polling numbers, gratuitously jumped into the fray, lodging his own assault on Roy Moore.

“Just to be clear,“ Flake tweeted, “if the choice is between Roy Moore and a Democrat, I would run to the polling place to vote for the Democrat.”

This is not abhorrent behavior. The aptly named Flake, it should be remembered, escorted Merrick Garland through the halls of the U.S. Senate, introducing Obama’s lame duck choice for the vacant seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, as he attempted to garner votes for the Democrat‘s confirmation. Had he been successful, the dramatic leftward lurch of the high court, would have had irrevocable negative consequences. 

Fortunately, though much to Flake’s dismay, Donald Trump was elected president. He nominated Tenth Circuit Appellate Judge Neil Gorsuch who was confirmed to fill the seat made available by the unexpected death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.

Amnesty supporter Jeff Flake has long confused the two political parties and what they stand for. He’s had his snout in the public trough so long, he’s unable to discern the stark differences. They each have platforms, which he obviously has never taken the time to review.


Gunning for Roy Moore: Why now?

November 14, 2017

The U.S. Senate race in Alabama has tentacles that reach deeper and encompass more than most casual political observers can fathom. It also exposes the seamy underbelly of internecine party politics — in this case — the go-along-to-get-along establishment Republicans who are all too eager to see conservative Roy Moore kicked to the curb. 

Hauling out accusations of alleged inappropriate behavior with young women claimed as fact by questionable sources or those tied to the Democrat hierarchy, that ostensibly took place nearly 40 years ago is indicative of the lengths to which the desperate will go.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), which fundraises for Senate candidates has withdrawn its support of Moore despite four decades in which he has been a candidate in five statewide campaigns, three county elections and has remained outspoken regarding religious liberty and a public monument of the Ten Commandments.

But Mitch McConnell toady Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Col.), chair of the McConnell-controlled NRSC doesn’t care as he bizarrely threatens to nullify the vote of the people of Alabama, saying, “If he refuses to withdraw and wins, the Senate should vote to expel him, because he does not meet the ethical and moral requirements of the United States Senate.”

We missed similar demands regarding U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez, (D-NJ).

Even with close scrutinizing in the public media and with the intrigue of opposition research, these issues have never been raised against Roy Moore.

Why now?

The answer is simple. Running within the state of Alabama Roy Moore was insulated and safe from scurrilous accusations meant to take him out of his previous campaigns. This time is different.  He’s a conservative running for the U.S. Senate. The party apparatus — most notably Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — wants pliable. Roy Moore doesn’t fit that description. The story broke in the Washington Post, a far left publication solely owned by multi-billionaire Jeff Bezos, who didn’t think it important to cover the ongoing rape allegations against Hollywood insider Harvey Weinstein, but is dedicated to perpetrating politically based allegations against Roy Moore.

Mitch McConnell’s leadership position is riding on this U.S. Senate race. His shaky majority could well be upended by uncompromising conservative Roy Moore.

Curiously, none of Moore’s accusers were heard from when he was elected chief justice in 2000 and 2012 or when he ran for governor in 2006 and 2010, making the women’s claims even more suspicious.

The Washington syndicate can’t tolerate a man of conscience who won’t automatically fall in line with the D.C. power structure, which is why McConnell is now demanding that Moore, “ Step aside.”

But things are different on the home front in Alabama. “I got more calls yesterday for Roy Moore signs than I have since the primary,” Calhoun County Republican Party Chairman James Bennett told the Montgomery Advertiser on Friday. “I think they’re (Moore supporters) are very skeptical of the reporting four weeks before the election. They’re going to withhold their judgment, but they’re not going to withhold their vote.”

Speaking to supporters, Moore nailed it, saying,

“The Democrats, and the Republican establishment, know the importance of this election. In fact, most people in America know the importance of this election. They view it as a prelude to the elections coming in 2018. It may very well determine the future of our country. This is a prime example of fake news, an attempt to divert attention from the true issues that face our country like healthcare, military readiness, tax reform, immigration, and the national debt. We do not intend to let the Democrats or the establishment Republicans or anybody else behind this story stop this campaign. There are investigations going on. In the next few days, there will be revelations about the motivations and the content of these lies. They will be brought to the public.”

Prominent evangelical Christians James Dobson, who heads Focus on the Family and Rev. Franklin Graham praised Roy Moore in advance of Alabama’s Senate runoff.

 Dec. 12 Moore will face Democrat Doug Jones.


Magical McCain: Knows the past, foretells the future & Update

Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore too conservative for GOP establishment elites who try to take him down

Sex abuse has become the issue of the day. After initial complaints surfaced, emboldening others, allegations about media mogul Harvey Weinstein reached epic proportions. As per the latest script, he checked himself into rehab. We’d already seen this explosive scenario with Bill Cosby as women came forth with their stories. Then came the even more difficult exposés as young boys channeled into the entertainment industry began revealing the abuse by movie celebrities who preferred them to the glamorous females who surrounded them.

Syracuse.com provides a seemingly endless list of Hollywood celebs who have had allegations made against them.

Now it gets political. Roy Moore, a former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, recently won a hotly contested GOP senate primary runoff election in that state, to succeed Jeff Sessions who is now serving as U.S. Attorney General in the Trump administration.  Appointed Senator Luther Strange lost despite being backed with millions of dollars in support from a Senate PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“The attempt by the silk-stocking Washington elitists to control the vote of the people of Alabama has failed,” Moore declared on election night.

Maybe. Maybe not. They play hardball and don’t like to lose.

The establishment was none too happy with the election outcome. What better way to take down this strong Christian conservative, who was a Captain in Vietnam after graduating from West Point, and prior to attending law school, than to allege sexual misconduct? It’s the rage.

 The interestingly timed bombshell accusations come from Leigh Corfman, a three-time divorcee so deeply in debt she’s filed for bankruptcy protection on several occasions.  She now claims Moore engaged in “sexual misconduct” with her 38 years ago when she was 14 and Moore was 32. According to her account, there was no actual sexual contact. As a troubled teen from a broken home, she reportedly used drugs and attempted suicide.

But who does John McCain believe? McCain, the self-appointed judge and jury says, “The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying. He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they are proud of.”

Our bet is the starkly politically motivated accusations will energize Roy Moore’s supporters.

Surprise!! It turns out Debbie Gibson, one of Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore’s accusers is a dedicated Democrat activist who has worked for the DNC as a sign language interpreter for Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden. This disclosure was mysteriously missing from the Washington Post’s original report which was heavy with finger-pointing and light on substantiated facts. Gibson worked for Roy Moore’s Democrat opponent, Doug Jones, prior to the accusations becoming public.

 


MC Recorder Adrian Fontes tells voter to F-himself

November 3, 2017

You wouldn’t be alone if you’ve never heard of Adrian Fontes. The lawyer and political novice is Maricopa County‘s classy new Recorder, winning the election by a single percentage point over Helen Purcell who held the post for nearly 30 years. The office oversees elections and records documents.

Fontes not only wants to reconstruct the elections process within one of the nation’s largest counties, he is paring down polling places, sending all registered voters a mail-in ballot — regardless of whether or not they requested one and is hard at work reconfiguring voting precincts, consolidating them for what many believe to be nefarious purposes — giving the edge to Democrats.

On his bio page on the Recorder’s Office website, the word Democrat, in bold face type, follows his name as the third word on the site. He also informs Maricopa County voters that he is an “avid supporter of his community.”  Exactly which community is not defined, though Maricopa County, the fourth most populous county in the United States is far too large to be considered “a community.“  The fact that he plays in a mariachi band, could be a clue.

But it’s his mouth that is putting the liberal on the map. When a voter complained on Facebook about encountering difficulties with the ballot and mentioned that his mother was also having problems, Fontes, the father of three young daughters, blew a hole through the civility that voters have come to expect from the Recorder’s Office. He told the man, a fellow Democrat running for the state legislature, he could go “F-himself.” He then backed that response up by saying, “My response was not only appropriate but deserved,” saying he was defending the work of his staff.

After his coarseness made the news, Fontes later apologized to the candidate for the crude response. He said he took matters too far, and said he will try to do better. “Try” is a bit too iffy to count on from a boorish hothead like Adrian Fontes.

During his campaign, Fontes claimed to want to make the county recorder’s office “nonpartisan,” either by taking the vote from the people by making the elected post an appointed position or by deceptively concealing the party affiliation of candidates as the City of Phoenix does.

Since the word “Democrat” follows his name on his office bio, that pre-election blather has obviously gone by the wayside. It falls in the same category as open borders/amnesty proponent John McCain deceptively pledging tocomplete the danged fence.”


Leftwing media reactions to NYC terrorism

Few things are more deplorable than liberals rushing to give aid and comfort to murderous jihadist terrorists who intend to impose an Islamist caliphate on the West.

 


Reality takes a hike when Trump haters gather

October 29, 2017

From time to time SRAZ has posted, “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.” With the retirement of brilliant conservative Thomas Sowell, such worthy columns are more difficult to find.

Yet as much as we enjoy reading columnists with whom we agree, it’s crucial to be aware of what  those passing themselves off as conservatives attempt to misrepresent as factual.

Today we are veering off into the incomprehensible mindset of New York Times columnist David Brooks, who appeared Friday on ‘PBS NewsHour’ with Judy Woodruff and Mark Shields. Woodruff was recently honored at a soiree in Phoenix where she was presented with the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism, given annually by Arizona State University. In her acceptance speech, Woodruff issued an assurance that “journalists are not the enemy.”

That bit of information should prepare you for what comes next —  David Brooks: This Was The Week Steve Bannon Really Took Control Of The Republican Party, posted on Real Clear Politics.

RINOs, such as Arizona’s two now irrelevant senators and leftists have joined at the hip in portraying highly accomplished Bannon as evil incarnate.  His wrongdoing?  Bringing Donald Trump to the forefront of the GOP primary lineup of 17 candidates and across the finish line as the campaign’s chief executive. After Trump was elected president, Bannon was appointed White House Chief Strategist before returning to Breitbart News as executive chairman.

David Brooks’ New York Times op-ed, The Week Trump won, opens with references to Lenin, Trotsky “and the rest of the Bolsheviks” taking over Russia.  Guess who he views as the present day disastrous political extremists?
