AZ Republic, where leftism rules, still hounds Arpaio

October 17, 2018

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio still generates headlines in the duplicitous Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper. The popular sheriff, elected to an unprecedented six 4-year terms, was relentlessly hounded out of office by the newspaper’s editorial page editor, Phil Boas, Arpaio’s own son-in-law in 2016.

But replacing Republican Arpaio with a Democrat accused wife beater wasn’t enough. Today’s headline links Arpaio to Dennis Hof, a Nevada entrepreneur and brothel owner who died in his sleep hours after a political rally/birthday party at which Joe Arpaio, Tucker Carlson, and Grover Norquist spoke. Hof, 72, was a Trump-supporting Republican candidate for the Nevada Assembly. Prostitution is legal and regulated in larger counties by the state of Nevada.

An online search reveals the newspaper went uncharacteristically mute when Democrat former First Lady Rosalynn Carter was pictured greeting John Wayne Gacy and Jim Jones, both mass murderers.

Gacy, later executed, was charged with the torture and sex-related murders of at least 33 boys and young men whose bodies he confessed to burying under his own house. Mrs. Carter shook his hand.

Jones was the monstrous cult leader and Marxist, purporting to be a minister, who led 912 followers to take their own lives and those of their children by drinking a cyanide-laced grape Kool Aid-type concoction at his Jonestown compound in Guyana. This mass slaughter took place after the killing of U.S. Congressman Leo Ryan and his team who came to investigate at the request of relatives of some members of the commune.

The only reason to subscribe to the overpriced daily disseminator of garbage which habitually endorses Democrats is if you enjoy having your intelligence insulted and blood pressure spiked.

Arrogant Jeff Flake exposes himself as irrational buffoon

October 13, 2018

During this interview with C-SPAN’s Steve Scully, Jeff the Flake, who was forced to abandon his plans for a second senate term due to appalling 18-percent approval ratings in his home state, arrogantly mulls the idea of running for president. He discusses the possibility of mounting a challenge to Donald Trump, among the most successful U.S. Presidents in modern times. For those with an especially strong stomach, the full interview airs this evening…Saturday, October 13, at 7:00 pm AZ time on C-SPAN.

Republicrat Flake pompously lectures Republicans, telling us we need to remember what decency is and what it means to be conservative — as if the marginal Flake could comprehend concepts of such magnitude.

When Americans, who have waited in lines for hours to attend his rallies, cheer President Trump, Flake, who was frequently unable to draw a crowd, defines that as “unseemly.”

The fact is Pres. Trump is fulfilling his promises — to the delight of the majority of American citizens benefiting from the Trump tax cuts, increased purchasing power and historically low unemployment, reflected strongly among blacks and Hispanics. His unprecedented meetings with North Korean and Chinese leaders and discussions on nuclear disarmament have opened the door to making the world a safer place. Despite contentious battles waged by the left, he has added two originalist justices on the U.S. Supreme Court during his first two years. Those who dislike Trump obviously don’t like winning.


Unhinged anti-Trump Dems seek new remedy

October 9, 2018

Impeachment won’t play out, so despondent Dems turn to abolishing Electoral College as support for the system rises

The thrust for change in our nation’s election process isn’t new. In more recent times it peaked in 2000 when Democrat Al Gore, with the majority of popular votes (48.4%), lost to George W. Bush (47.9%) who won the Electoral College vote 271 – 266. There were renewed calls from the left to abandon the system when Donald Trump (45.9%) was victorious over Hillary Clinton (48.0%) in 2016. The Electoral College vote was 232 for Hillary and 306 for Trump. Clinton also had five defectors. One, from Washington state, voted for Faith Spotted Eagle.

The general election in November is an indirect election, where voters cast ballots for a slate of members of the Electoral College. These electors, in turn, directly elect the President and Vice President. Our nation’s founders put this system, which has served us well for over 230 years, in place for a reason. Each state regardless of size or population has two senators. But states with higher populations are not able to overwhelm less densely populated states. Without the Electoral College, states like California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and New York would have disproportionate influence in the nation’s elections. The number of electors is equal to the number of U. S. Senators and Representatives to which each state is entitled in Congress.

Like spoiled children, dejected Democrats, are flailing about trying to overturn the 2016 election of Donald Trump, who is doing exactly what he promised — to the delight of the majority of American citizens, benefiting from the Trump tax cuts, increased purchasing power and historically low unemployment. His unprecedented meetings with North Korean and Chinese leaders and discussions on nuclear disarmament have opened the door to making the world a safer place.  Facing contentious battles, he has added two justices on the U.S. Supreme Court.

This Gallup poll taken within weeks of the 2016 election of President Trump, shows Americans’ support for the electoral college has risen sharply.

Dissolute Dems have little chance of reining in the Electoral College, which is enshrined in our Constitution. Eliminating it requires a Constitutional amendment. That’s a two-thirds vote in both the House and the Senate and the ratification of three-fourths (38) of the 50 states — a virtual impossibility.


The appalling descent of liberalism

October 8, 2018

As many of our readers are aware, SRAZ occasionally devotes a weekend post to a column we view as particularly worthy of our reader’s time. These are posted under the heading “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.” Today is, of course, Monday. That title doesn’t work.

Know this: If you set aside three minutes to read, “The Mean-Spirited Left,” it will resonate with you throughout the day. The points are strong and well stated by Powerline’s John Hinderaker, encapsulating other aspects of the lunacy that undergirds today‘s left. You’ll have a clearer frame of reference when reviewing the spectacles we’ve observed leading up to the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the 114th associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. There have been other contentious battles at this level, but none descending into the raw political muck and mire we just witnessed — all part of a steadily creeping, ruthless, contagion that has overtaken the left.

Hinderaker ends his compelling commentary with these words: “Today’s liberals have no decency. None whatsoever. Perhaps the most depressing fact is that, to my knowledge, not a single prominent Democrat has repudiated his party’s descent into madness.”


Untrustworthy Flake hit with damning Biblical analogy

October 4, 2018

…sans 30 pieces of silver

Jeff Flake, Arizona’s “on the skids” senator, has reached the final stage of his political career. Responding in the only way possible to an unprecedented, abysmal 18 percent approval rating in his home state following his first senate term, he took the path of least resistance and didn’t run for reelection. 

Unfortunately, pretentious Flake has neither the refinement nor wisdom to leave quietly. Those character traits are not ingrained in the persona of a man who camped alone on a deserted island in 2011 as an excuse to send out shirtless beefcake photos of himself. The now fawning, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic was not always such a Flake fan. It referred to him asa coward,“ anda mere politician, no longer a statesman,” when he disappointed them by reversing his stance on amnesty for illegal aliens during a U.S. House campaign. The newspaper needn’t have worried. It was just election based rhetoric that he tossed aside after the votes were counted.

Fast forward to 2018. Now possessed by a virulent anti-Trump mania, Flake is using his remaining time in D.C. fanning the flames set by his Democrat cohorts who are doing everything in their power to derail the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.  When there was nothing of substance to use against the respected federal appellate judge, Christine Blasey Ford, a-less-than-truthful witness sprang forth with allegations dating back nearly 40 years to their high school days. Though she has been caught lying (i.e., her fear of flying was found to be bogus), her memory is fuzzy and no one has corroborated her new-found memories, she has Jeff Flake joining the Democrats, to keep picking at this festering boil.

Make no mistake. What we are witnessing is raw political warfare intended to deny Pres. Trump another appointment to the Supreme Court. In 2016, Flake and McCain both stated they would not vote for GOP nominee Donald Trump.

One of the best assessments of the debacle, is titled,GOP‘s Judas,” by Clarence V. McKee for Newsmax. He nails Flake — as a modern-day Judas Iscariot — who didn’t even get his “thirty pieces of silver” for selling out the GOP Judiciary Committee and Senate colleagues.

This morning, the Senate began reviewing the FBI’s completed report on the allegations.


Kavanaugh spectacle: High stakes trickle-down reality for Dems

October 3, 2018

North Dakota Democrat Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is reaping the harvest of her statement at a recent campaign event when she disingenuously lectured that President Trump should pick another nominee other than Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court.

Democrats don’t want another nominee. They continue to lament that Hillary Clinton isn’t able to appoint a Democrat, and want to deny Pres. Donald Trump future confirmations of his conservative choices. The harsh reality is, Democrats have declared war on America. Those who dare question the Left’s radical agenda find themselves in the crosshairs.

According to a newly released poll, Heitkamp now trails GOP challenger U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer by 10 points. Congressman Cramer, North Dakota’s only member of the House of Representatives, has deep roots within the Republican Party as the former state GOP chairman.

Fifty-one percent of likely voters polled said they are backing Rep. Cramer while 41 percent said they support Heitkamp. Eight percent are undecided.

Heitkamp is struggling to keep her seat in a state that went to President Trump by nearly 63 percent of the vote in 2016. Hillary garnered just 27 percent.

Sixty percent of North Dakota voters surveyed say they support federal appellate Judge Brett Kavanaugh, suddenly facing politically motivated allegations of teenage misconduct despite being vetted six previous times for high level White House and judicial positions.

The poll emerges as Heitkamp and other red-state Democrats attempt to navigate the rocky path between party allegiance and integrity.

Unprincipled Jeff Flake, (highly recommended Washington Times report) who opted out of running for a second senate term due to a bottom-dragging 18 percent approval rating has denied Arizona voters the pleasure of sending him packing by withholding their votes from the Trump-hating Republicrat.  

U.S. Rep. Martha McSally, (AZ CD-2) the first woman in U.S. history to fly a fighter jet in combat and command a fighter squadron, is the credentialed Republican running to replace him in the senate.

Trump easily carried Arizona, winning all 11 electoral votes in 2016 and remains immensely popular. Flake’s dismal statewide approval rating should write the closing chapter on his political saga. Instead the clueless Flake is traveling to New Hampshire to test the presidential waters.

 It’s a good bet the Flake can’t swim.


Flake waffles on SCOTUS vote, longs to be center of attention

September 28, 2018

In waning days of his D.C. career, lame duck Republicrat desperately struggles for relevancy, seeks center stage with what could be pivotal vote

In one of his many oratorical  attempts to sound high-minded while bashing Pres. Trump, Jeff Flake went on a pomposity rant, stating, “If we compromise the truth for the sake of our politics, we are lost.”

The quote is instructive in view of Flake’s waffling leading up to the confirmation vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The federal district judge has suffered savage partisan attacks on his integrity since being nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court by Pres. Trump. Thursday’s hearing was a despicable unified display of partisan bile spewed by the left.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a longtime McCain sidekick, has found his own voice and expressed outrage over the abuse being thrown at Judge Kavanaugh, (video) mincing no words.  Graham’s impassioned statement was the highlight of the day.

But Flake, true to the form that caused him to alienate Arizona Republicans to the point of garnering only an 18% approval rating and realizing he couldn’t win reelection to his single term senate seat, equivocated as late as yesterday, saying both Judge Kavanaugh and his accuser “gave compelling testimony.“  This, despite the fact that Christine Ford had no reliable recollections of where or when the assault she claimed she suffered as a teen 36 years ago took place, who was there at the time and even lied about her fear of flying, as she delayed the hearing for purely partisan reasons. Those she asked to corroborate her account refused to do so.

Jeff Flake is reminiscent of Narcissus, the Greek character of myth, who became enchanted with his own reflection in a body of water, leaned in to get a closer look and drowned trying to pursue himself. Who can forget Flake’s solo escapade on a deserted island years ago, taking only the barest of necessities to sustain life along with a camera and tripod to film himself. Is this egomaniacal lightweight, unable to discern fact from fiction, someone to entrust with a crucial vote on a U.S. Supreme Court Justice?
