Resurrecting John McShadegg?

August 13, 2018

Dissecting the disconnect

In this fawning interview by Arizona Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Glenn Hamer, former Arizona Congressman John Shadegg is talking like a Trump supporter, which should raise the antenna on anyone who pays attention to the state’s political scene.

The Chamber, representing business interests that prefer cheap labor to American workers, has never advocated for a secure border. Illegal labor profiteers have a bottom line agenda that isn’t in sync with conservative voters.

The dichotomy is stark, since President Trump campaigned and won on building a border wall.  Unlike John McCain who strolled the border and talked, with tongue firmly planted in his cheek, about completingthe danged fenceto get elected, Trump meant it. And it wasn’t a “danged fence.”  It’s a secure wall. Jeff Flake, pivoted into the U.S. Senate by McCain and then retiring Jon Kyl, played the same pre-election game. Voters, so tired of his deception that they handed him his head in his hands with an 18% approval rating after a single senate term, caused him to withdraw from his reelection bid.

Deceitful McCain, it should be remembered, immediately after the votes were counted, embarked with his now-lame duck underling Jeff Flake, on constructing not a “fence” but rather the amnesty-bent Gang of Eight, colluding with Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Robert Menendez, Michael Bennet —  all open border leftists and a couple of other squish Republicrats,  Lindsey Grahamnesty and Marco Rubio —  in a concerted effort to push amnesty for illegal invaders, yet again. Fortunately this attempt also failed.

While in Congress, Shadegg went on record with the New York Times, 3000 miles from his home congressional district, boorishly insulting Arizonans who desired border security as “xenophobic and intolerant.

It’s generational. John Shadegg’s son, Stephen, worked for McCain and is now managing the senate campaign of the duplicitous Martha McSally, (revealing video) often referred to on this site as Sally McCain.

And Hamer? Prior to joining the Arizona Chamber of Commerce, the former Kyl aide was executive director of the Arizona Republican Party. Immediately after taking the Chamber’s top job, he opportunistically endorsed liberal Democrat Janet Napolitano, then running for governor against solid conservative, Len Munsil.

Judge dismisses lawsuit filed by Flake’s son, ex-wife

August 12, 2018

Flaky Austin Flake and Logan Brown try and fail in another attempt to get rich on the backs of Maricopa County taxpayers

Federal Judge Neil Wake has dismissed the lawsuit brought by Austin Flake and his now ex-wife Logan, who has reclaimed her maiden name of Brown.

The case stemmed from dismissed animal cruelty charges the duo faced in the June 2014 heat related suffocation deaths of nearly two dozen dogs they supposedly were caring for at Green Acre Kennel in Gilbert. The facility was owned by Logan’s mother and step-father, MaLeisa and Jesse “Todd” Hughes, who were vacationing in Florida when the gruesome deaths occurred.

When the Flakes’ checked the kennel on the hot June 20th morning and witnessed the horrific scene, they did not call for veterinary assistance, opting to hose down the dying dogs, then callously piled their dead carcasses in a shed.

The pets sweltered to death, packed together in a steamy utility room, lacking air-conditioning. They had neither food nor water in their stomachs, according to the veterinarian who performed necropsies on the dogs.

On October 14, 2014, a Grand Jury indicted both couples with 21 felony counts and 7 misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals. Ultimately Logan’s parents served short sentences on fraud charges involving lying to the owners of the pets, telling them their dogs ran away. The Hughes’ took plea deals in lieu of going to trial. As defendants, each pleaded guilty to one count of facilitation to commit fraudulent schemes and artifices, and one count of cruelty to animals, both Class 6 felonies. Their sentences included 23 days in jail without the possibility of work release, work furlough, home detention or compliance monitoring.  The days they served equaled one day per dead dog.

After Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery dropped the 21 felony charges and 7 misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals against Austin and Logan Flake, the actual responsible parties, they filed a lawsuit against the taxpayers of Maricopa County and Sheriff Joe Arpaio, seeking $8 million to resurrect their formerly pristine reputations. They claim they were targeted by the Sheriff’s office and their characters were ruined by the investigation. A few $million each could go a long way to soothe their hurt feelings. Fortunately that effort went nowhere.

With their eyes still on the money prize, they angled for another civil trial, this time against the sheriff’s investigative detective.

But Judge Wake has now dismissed that lawsuit, ruling their attorney Stephen Montoya hadn’t provided evidence the detective intended to deprive the Flakes’ of their rights. Read the judge’s order.

SRAZ has written extensively about this tragic set of circumstances and the appalling flakes. Let’s hope this is the last we hear of these grifters. 


Martha Mc…McCain outed by Republic’s Montini

August 6, 2018

Martha McSally: Another deceptive McCain protégé

SRAZ has been referring to Martha McSally as Sally McCain since her entry into Arizona’s U.S. Senate race. It appears the Arizona Republic’s emaciated, far left columnist E. J. Montini has been reading our posts.

Don’t mistake his outing her as the latest version of John McCain’s Primary Election flipping and General Election flopping on border issues, indicates he’s seen the light and has gone conservative.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

Montini, an unrepentant liberal, is hoping whatever he does will help boost radical extremist Kyrsten Sinema, newly revamped and posing as an “independent problem solver,” into Arizona’s open U.S. Senate seat.

Longtime readers will remember when now-lame duck Jeff Flake, followed his McMentor’s same deceptive path to office in 2011. Flake’s double talk threw Republic then-editorialist Doug MacEachern into such a tailspin he declared Flake to be a mere “politician” — no longer a “statesman.”

In 2010 campaign mode, McCain strolled the border with then-Pinal County Sheriff Babeu, who after hearing McCain’s feigned declaration of commitment tocomplete the danged fence, solemnly stated, “Senator, you’re one of us”—  leading many to wonder what the actual inference was.

In a recent Glamour magazine interview McCain’s Trump-hating daughter, Meghan, was quoted as saying of her seriously ill father, “I’m scared of America without him.”

Americans who believe border security is national security, have been equally frightened of her father’s decades long promotion of amnesty for illegal alien invaders. 

We were stunned by his involvement in the now discredited “dossier” intended to take down President Trump, which he hand-delivered to then-FBI Director James Comey, while acting in concert with Hillary Clinton‘s campaign.

It was shocking to see a sitting U.S. Senator posing with Syrian rebels who became the leaders of ISIS — referring to them as “freedom fighters.”  But without Joe Lieberman to point out the differences, Dad was clearly at a disadvantage. 

McCain and McSally are interchangeable.

Vote principled conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate.  It’s time for a real change.


Jeff the Flake returns to Africa, prefers gov’t to U.S.

August 4, 2018

Loose cannon Flake embarrasses himself again

The aptly named Jeff Flake is once again in his beloved Africa.  He was first there on a church mission, later returning to Namibia in the 1990’s where he was employed as a registered foreign agent working for Rossing Uranium, a mining company with ties to Iran and one of the world‘s largest supplies of nuclear fuel. He lobbied on behalf of the company, opening doors in Washington D.C. —- a job, as the HuffPost points out, Flake did his best to keep under wraps as he campaigned for the U.S. House as a “political outsider.”

During his single senate term, due to expire with the coming election, fake Republican Flake cozied up to Barack Obama, and accompanied him and the congressional black caucus to Kenya, Obama’s familial homeland.

Now Flake, once again jetting at taxpayer’s expense, is in Zimbabwe, emulating Jimmy Carter by overseeing questionable elections in third world countries. Flake’s observation in the wake of deadly violence and claims of rigged results?  According to this Breitbart News report, “Democracy doesn’t get any better than this.” His vacuous tweet was enthusiastic.

This past year, Flake, too haughty and ignorant to be content merely being an American citizen, proudly referred to himself asa globalist.”

Not only does Flake bring to mind the liberal Jimmy Carter, 95, but also his far left counterpart, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, now 85. In 2012, she actually praised the South African Constitution (video) over the Constitution of the United States.

Flake is finishing his first and last senate term due to bottom dragging 18% approval ratings after incessant eruptions of Trump-hatred — from tedious tirades delivered in an empty senate chamber to gifting his vitriolic anti-Trump spew to the appreciative alphabet networks. The resulting abysmal polling caused him to rethink a reelection bid, and avoid the embarrassment of a humiliating defeat at the polls.

We’ve long suspected that the disrespected junior senator has had a uncertain grasp on reality…but this latest escapade proves it beyond a doubt. Unconstrained rage has been noted as a symptom of early onset dementia. Jeff might not only be sickening. He may also be sick.


Sinema: AZ donkey disguised as elephant angles for votes

July 27, 2018

AZ’s growing number of registered “Independent” voters, less attuned to political realities, could irretrievably tip the national scales

A zoo in Cairo is causing a ruckus and raising indignation after the deception was exposed that donkeys had been painted to look like more expensive to purchase zebras. Actual zebras have different characteristics that make the fraud conspicuous.

Here in Arizona, we have a donkey masquerading as an elephant and the silence has been deafening. Not a peep has emanated from the zookeepers at GOP headquarters, asking where Kyrsten Sinema’s party identifier is on her ubiquitous campaign ads. Of interest is the fact that she’s running them on the conservative Fox cable news network.

Sinema has undergone a total, though superficial, transformation, as she refers to herself as a “problem solver,“ who “works across the aisle to get things done.”  She repeatedly calls herself “independent,” even “fiercely” so. That word is used with intent to capture the growing number of “Independent” voters, who miss the negative and far-reaching consequences of voting for this political fraud.

She’s the author ofUnite and Conquerwhich details her techniques.

Poised and polished, speaking softly cloaked in her newly crafted demeanor, there is no hint of the crude and coarse, self-identified bi-sexual, former Green Party-leaning Communist, candidate turned Democrat.  In her former incarnation, she used foul-mouthed slurs to describe women who choose to be stay-at-home Moms. Now blonde and slim, wearing glasses to make her appear studious, and tipping her head in a submissive pose, it’s clear the CD 9 U.S. Representative — an avowed atheist who refused to take her oath of office with her hand on the Bible — worked with a coach in her latest and most significant deceptive quest. 

Currently running statewide for the U.S. Senate, Sinema’s obviously trying to capture cross-party votes, even desiring Republicans she can con.  She’s raising massive amounts of money to effect the change.

This donkey disguised as an elephant is a shrewd schemer, positioning herself to use a U.S. Senate seat to align with the Chuck Schumer-led leftists and block conservative votes on matters of national importance, such as confirmation of Supreme Court Justices, federal district court judges and cabinet appointees nominated by President Trump. The senate’s powers are detailed here.

 The painted jackasses in the Cairo zoo pale by comparison to the one here in Arizona working diligently to deceive Arizona voters.  

Seeing Red AZ strongly supports principled conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate.


Ken Bennett: The conservative in AZ’s Governor race

July 25, 2018

Early ballots will be mailed August 1st

Arizona’s GOP gubernatorial primary is the race to watch. Despite the failing Arizona Republic newspaper’s ongoing deprecation of conservative challenger Ken Bennett, editorially advising him to get out of the race, his message is resonating with Republican voters. 

The Republicrat camp of incumbent Doug Ducey, a staunch McCain ally, became so unhinged by Ken Bennett’s entry into the race, his nominating petition signatures were challenged in court. They lost.  Bennett remains on the ballot.

The Hillary-endorsing newspaper continues to hurl invectives at Bennett, with editorial page editor Phil Boas calling Bennett’s efforts “bizarre,” while asserting he “won’t win.”

For a memory refresher regarding the behind the scenes machinations as the primary election approaches, we urge you to read,“Bennett’s in the race: AZ Gov. Doug McDucey should be nervous.

It provides background to Ducey’s deep connection to his political mentor and longtime friend, John McCain and his former boss Cindy Hensley McCain. She hired him for his first job after he moved to Arizona from Ohio. Ducey worked at Hensley & Co., Cindy’s Anheuser-Busch beer empire.

Bennett, an Arizona native was raised in Prescott, where he was elected to the city council and served as mayor. Later, he was elected to the Arizona Senate where he was elected senate president by his colleagues. In 2008, Ken Bennett was elected secretary of state, by Arizona citizens, a job that is next in the line of succession to the governor. A successful businessman with a degree in accounting, Bennett possesses a skill set based in finance, and would not have interjected himself into the teacher’s union foray as Ducey did, rather than putting the teacher salary trickery back in the hands of the elected school boards who rightly have the ultimate oversight.

Nervous Ducey is reshuffling members of his executive staff to his campaign, as he refuses to debate the well-qualified and experienced Bennett. No doubt Ducey doesn’t want to defend himself for acquiescing to the demands of Arizona’s #RedsforEd striking unionist teachers who violated their contractual agreements as they followed a 23-year-old Bernie Sanders-supporting socialist, abandoning 840,000 Arizona students for a week. Ducey rewarded them with a 20 percent pay increase.  They weren’t satisfied and are now moving forward with a Marxist-styled “redistribution of wealth” ballot initiative, permanently amending the AZ Constitution.  The deceptively named Invest in Education Act will harm Arizona’s small business owners and job creators, to further enhance teacher’s salaries.

Given the facts, it’s not surprising Ducey is so shaky he refuses to debate Ken Bennett.

Send Ken Bennett a Clean Elections $5 donation and/or $160 in seed money to enable him to qualify for campaign funding. Time is short. He needs our help. Unlike Ducey, Bennett is not funded by lobbyists and high dollar donors who want to retain the weak Republicrat status quo.


AZ Republic’s selective memory, hypocrisy, misplaced outrage

July 17, 2018

The headline in this morning’s edition of Arizona’s leftist newspaper, still apoplectic over the fact that Donald Trump was overwhelmingly elected President of the United States, blasts a single word, all caps, headline: ‘DISGRACEFUL.’

It refers to President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland and Trump’s reputed recognition of Putin’s denials of meddling in U.S. elections. President Trump has since amended his comment saying he used the words, “would not” when he in fact intended to say “would” when describing whether he thought the Russians were possibly hacking our elections.

Trump-hater John McCain, suffering from what his Mayo neurosurgeons described as an aggressive brain malignancy, has not been seen in public since last year. Yet we are led to believe he is still sending out tweets and press releases. His staff is hard at work, but it’s a good bet the seriously ill senator is not.  His wife recently sent out messages of thanks to his devoted caregivers. This is supposedly McCain’s latest missive, in which the failed presidential candidate accused the president of “disgraceful behavior” and “defending a tyrant.” Not a negative word was heard from McCain when his underling Jeff Flake traveled to Communist Cuba with Obama and made deals with the murderous Castro dictators

 The hypocrisy is rampant.

When Barack Obama, attending a global nuclear security summit in South Korea — oblivious to his open mic — and conspiratorially leaned over asking for Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for “space,” the Arizona Republic  took it in stride.

“This is my last election,” Obama said. “After my election I’ll have more flexibility,” (brief video) assuring the Russian leader he would have the “flexibility” required to deal with Russia on missile defense issues after the 2012 presidential election.

There was no widespread media outrage regarding Obama’s collusion on a massive uranium deal selling Russia large U.S. reserves and the benefits that accrued to the Clinton Foundation in the wake of the transfers, as reported by the NY Times. Obama’s payoff of $1.7 billion in ransom to tyrannical, America-hating Iran for hostages was met with deafening silence.

Obama went on a worldwide apology tour, listing what he considered America’s transgressions and calling the United States “arrogant.” He bowed before the Muslim Saudi King and other tyrants and dictators. Where was the Arizona Republic‘s outrage then?  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed evidence that Obama operatives were deeply involved in trying to oust him from office.

Neither did Arizona’s Hillary-endorsing newspaper, blast headlines of her years of deceit and attempts to obscure the truth throughout her time as Obama’s Secretary of State or as a presidential candidate. The newspaper was enamored with the substandard known liar, described as engaging in a “staggering dereliction of duty and deception,” in the deaths — including the U.S. ambassador — at our government compound in Benghazi, Libya. Her compromising of national security by using a private server located in the bathroom closet of her home was given short shrift. Her lies were more than outrageous, they were dangerous and ongoing, but she was given a pass and endorsed.

The double standard is beyond rational, but it thrives at the local newspaper.
