Jeff Flake sidles up to NBC, auditions for network gig

February 13, 2018

Hustling for work at uber-liberal CNN, likely won’t pay off as the network finds Trump bashing isn’t profitable, laying off “dozens” of employees

Jeff Flake, whose 18% approval rating was so low he decided against a Senate reelection bid rather than risk the embarrassment of that reality hitting him smack in his already crooked nose, is now homing his advice skills.  And the intended beneficiary of that wisdom?  None other than President Donald Trump — who beat back 16 other Republican primary candidates nationally. Trump won Arizona’s GOP primary by more than 20 percentage points before carrying the state in the general election. and took the Electoral College vote by 306 to Hillary Clinton’s 232.

Here is Flake on ‘Meet the Press,‘ chatting amiably Sunday with NBC’s Chuck Todd, while attacking President Trump. Flake, who repeatedly engages in hammering the President of the United States, dishonestly worries about the problem caused by the degradation of the political culture, calling it a “real concern.” 

During the interview, Flake repeatedly refers to a litany of his own previous speeches while pitching his anti-Trump agenda.

CHUCK TODD: Let me ask you on the treasonous comment. Do you think we need to get a sense of humor or does the president need to watch his words?

JEFF FLAKE: No, I think the president needs to stop calling Democrats or Republicans or others who, who don’t stand or applaud at every line that he has, that they’re “un-American.” He also used that term,”treasonous.” Practiced liar Flake hypocritically told Todd, “Words matter.” When he talks about fake news, for example, the man who accompanied Barack Obama to repressive Communist Cuba,  says, “ I gave another speech where I talked about how that gives aid and comfort to authoritarians around the world who are now labeling their opposition or dismissing real dissent as fake news. So those things matter. So I don’t think that it’s a joking matter to say that somebody is treasonous and he (Pres. Trump) ought to stop it.”

CHUCK TODD: You’re one of the few Republicans that spoke up on that issue. Not many others did. And it seems like fewer and fewer are comfortable criticizing the president when he does some of these sort of unusual attacks on his opponents. Why is that?

JEFF FLAKE: Well, I think the real problem, as I’ve tried to mention, is that we are seeing now as normal, things that we shouldn’t see as normal. And this degradation of the political culture is a real concern, where we’re no longer outraged when we ought to be. And that’s a problem. So I do think that more of us ought to stand up and say, “Hey, this is beyond the bounds of where politics ought to be.” And the longer we go without doing that, you know, the further politics slides into areas that just are unhealthy.

Jeff Flake is a stellar example of exactly what he describes as concerning. That’s why he’s hustling for another job.  CNN, which made Trump bashing its bread and butter issue, is now  laying off dozens of employees. This Vanity Fair report provides the details of the failed “Trump Bump.” The American people who elected President Trump, aren’t buying the liberal pap whether it originates from Jeff the Flake or CNN.

Why higher Ed produces brainwashed liberals

February 10, 2018

American parents want to ensure a solid future for their kids and a degree from a prestigious college is seen as the key component to prosperity.

But consider what the university setting inspires in a field where a majority of professors identify as liberal. A request to grant extra credit to students who attend an upcoming guest lecture by Fox News commentator Katie Pavlich at Kennesaw State University on the subject of “Fake News” and liberal media bias has drawn the ire of one professor.

In an email exchange with the event’s student organizer, Business Law and Ethics Professor Neil Wilkinson agreed to give his 225 students extra credit if they attend, — in accordance with school policy — but also encouraged them to go after Pavlich like a “mad dog in a meat store.”

The event, slated for March 7, is hosted by Young Americans for Freedom and aims to “celebrate women’s month by hearing from speaker Katie Pavlich as she discusses the ways in which media is being used as leftist propaganda,” This is taboo subject, and one worthy of inciting violence against Pavlich.

This survey is dated by four years. Given increasing campus trend towards liberalism, chances are today’s numbers are even more skewed to the left. In 1990, according to survey data by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at UCLA, 42 percent of professors identified as “liberal” or “far-left.” By 2014, that number had jumped to 60 percent.  In colleges across the country, far-left professors now dominate disciplines such as English literature, sociology, and history. Few have anything positive to say about capitalism, the Constitution or the United States in general.

This could explain why college age Americans supported Socialist Bernie Sanders for U.S. President even though he was old enough to be their grandfathers and with whom they had little in common, though the lure of free tuition was irresistible.  It’s impossible tot be motivated to cherish, protect or defend a nation in which its citizens are steeped in moral relativism and  there is an appalling lack of understanding of America’s superior system of liberty and freedom based governance.

In a 2016 poll conducted by Harvard, 51 percent of Americans between 18 and 29 rejected capitalism, and a third said they supported socialism, a system based in Marxism, which older Americans understand is destructive to individual rights.  A Pew poll in 2011 showed that the same age bracket had more positive views of socialism than capitalism. Young people who are taught the USA is a flawed nation and believe, as Barack Obama does, in the failed policies of redistributing wealth will eagerly toss our freedoms to the wind and have no desire to protect the rights contained in our founding documents.

Barry Bluestone, a Northeastern University professor was caught on tape telling his students he “wouldn’t mind seeing President Trump dead.” If he had said that about Obama, he’d be charged with inciting  murder. The double standard is indefensible, but the lack of education in America’s educational institutions is far worse.


Rob Reiner: No wonder Archie Bunker called him “Meathead”

February 4, 2018

At his worst, Mike Stivic was never this screwy

Despite the fact that 75 percent of Americans approved of President Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday, Rob Reiner appeared on MSNBC to rant that “intelligent people” like the leftist network’s hardcore liberals Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews were forced to listen to the “racist….and pathological liar.”

Reiner followed that boorish tirade with, “I feel bad for you, intelligent people like you and Rachel and Brian Williams and Nicolle Wallace and Lawrence O’Donnell and Gene Robinson, you all have to sit there and talk about this guy as if he’s a president.”

“…..as if he’s a president“?

Reiner never carried on like this about Barack Obama, who actually fit his description to a “T.” Racists come in all colors. As President of the United States, Obama invited “Black Lives Matter”  thugs, who advocated killing police officers, to the White House. Obama lied like a champ because he was so practiced at deception. Here he is lying about Obamacare and granting amnesty to DACA illegals.

MRC’s NewsBusters features the loony liberal video. Donald Trump’s unexpected trouncing of Hillary Clinton was more than these folks have been able to handle.


McSally scores even lower than McCain

Jeff Flake: A phony, a fraud*

January 17, 2018

Obviously SRAZ is not going to cover showboating Jeff Flake’s latest tirade against President Donald Trump. The lame duck, Obama buddy would rather see a Democrat in the White House than the Republican president who stunned people like Flake and Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) when he victoriously swept the nation as the returns came in Nov. 8, 2016. Conservatives weren’t at all surprised.

One of the best assessments of Jeff the Flake is the opinion piece by L. Brent Bozell III, titled,Sen. Jeff Flake’s big audition for the Trump-despising media.” Your time will be better spent reading this on-target appraisal of the marginal Flake than watching his dishonest, showboating histrionics in the senate chamber.

Here’s Jeff Flake taking to the senate floor to honor the president, but not the duly elected one of the United States. He’s using the senate to honor Thomas S. Monson, who headed the LDS Church until his recent passing.

MLK Day icon Calvin Goode isn’t so iconic

January 16, 2018

Double standard exists: Calvin Goode made a mockery of MLK’s words when attempting to defeat a “white” woman based solely on her race

Reporting on Martin Luther King Day observances, the Arizona Republic gave front page coverage to notable black community activists and the winner of the Calvin C. Goode Lifetime Achievement Award.

What is omitted in the coverage is Goode’s own not so subtle bigotry. As we noted back in 2013, Goode threw the inspirationalI have a Dream” sentiments of Martin Luther King to the wind as he vigorously opposed a fellow Democrat woman running for a city council seat based solely on….her race. Take a couple of minutes to read Calvin Goode: Former councilman proposes racial gerrymandering, which includes his confounding letter to the newspaper’s editor explaining why “white” Kate Gallego should not be elected to the District 8 Council seat.

 Goode, who served on the Phoenix City Council for over two decades, elected by people of all races, shamefully opposed Kate Gallego not on the content of her character, but on the color of her skin — turning Martin Luther King‘s words on their ear. Regardless of Goode’s embarrassing protestations against her, she was elected. As an update, we note that in the intervening years her marriage to Ruben Gallego abruptly ended before the birth of their child.  Ruben Gallego is now the far-left, Trump-bashing congressman representing AZ CD 7.

This post, Council candidate Kate Gallego subject of incendiary race baiting, relates the vicious verbal abuse aimed her way by disreputable anti-white bigot Jarrett Maupin, II, a one-time Al Sharpton protégé. It exposes the appalling silence of the duplicitous Arizona Republic when she was called “white sham candidate in brown face,” “an interloping political puppet,” (albeit with a degree from Harvard and an MBA from the Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania) and “a white political patsy.”  He also referred to her as “a power-hungry white…who not is openly campaigning as white. Liberal Kate Gallego apparently has learned nothing from the racial political grinder she was put through. She is now a declared candidate for Mayor of Phoenix, and an open apologist for illegals, who she says, “benefit our city” by making it more “diverse.”

As we stated in 2013, “Seeing Red AZ is a politically conservative site, not in the business of giving aid and comfort to leftist Dems such as Kate Gallego.  However, the vicious assaults on this woman are reprehensible, and standing by in silence would be condoning this despicable behavior. We would be remiss not acknowledging that fact, regardless of race or party affiliation.”

Prejudice can flow in both directions and is equally abhorrent regardless of its origins. Oddly, the newspaper refuses to acknowledge this truth. And deserving recipients are gifted with a Lifetime Achievement Award named in honor of bigoted Calvin Goode. 


The notorious McDossier

January 11, 2018

Complicit McCain’s integral role in leaking bogus information confirmed

It’s no secret that Arizona’s miserable excuses for Republican senators despise Donald Trump.  After hurling numerous insults his way, both announced after Donald Trump was victorious over 16 other intra-party primary candidates that neither they nor their families would vote for the GOP nominee — effectively putting them in deceitful Hillary Clinton’s camp. 

It’s gotten no better since Trump’s election. Jeff Flake wrote a 104-page pamphlet masquerading as a book, castigating Trump. His resulting poll numbers were so hopeless, he opted out of campaigning for another term, which he would assuredly have lost. McCain, ill with brain cancer, has expended his waning energy on dramatically voting against Trump’s key measure of repealing and replacing Obamacare. Even as the door is closing on him, his bitter vengeance remains uncontrolled.

Fast forward to the newest revelations.

Whenever there’s an unsavory connection, deep in the muck, there’s most often a McCain link to be found.  The latest is a detailed, fact-filled report carried by Breitbart News, titled, “Fusion GPS Admits They Used John McCain to Pass Anti-Trump Dossier to Obama-Era Intel Agencies.” It details the actions of an arrogant and petty man consumed with jealous rage that political outsider Donald Trump attained what will forever elude him — the presidency of the United States.

McCain’s longstanding friendship with Hillary Clinton provided the impetus to personally carry the discredited, alleged Russian dossier to then-FBI Director James Comey. That’s the same James Comey, heading what we now know was an appallingly partisan office, who unilaterally decided that Clinton was merely” careless” and not criminally culpable following his investigation into her use of a personal email server exposing classified information while she was Secretary of State. So certain was Comey of her innocence that he drafted a statement about the conclusion of the Hillary Clinton email investigation months before interviewing Clinton.

In Comey, facilitator McCain found the right person to deliver the phony anti-Trump dossier to.

McCain previously denied knowledge of the fact that the dossier was funded by pal Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee, which even the leftwing Washington Post conceded in Oct. 2017.
