AZ Sen. Meza aided Google’s leftist election push

December 13, 2018

State Sen. Robert Meza, who was first elected to the Arizona House of Representatives representing District 14 in 2002, appears to keep a low profile. The General Election was Nov. 6, and the 54th Senate site is still is devoid of information.

This senate seating chart shows him relegated to the back of the chamber. Though he’s now in the state senate, there is no listing for him. Bio? Don’t bother. There is none. The former House member was first elected in West Phoenix, when he wasn’t actually living in the district from which he ran, but conveniently rented an apartment to establish a home base —- moving only after the votes were counted.  Currently representing District 30, after the last redistricting, the Democrat has no listing of bills he has sponsored or co-sponsored. There is no photo, which could erroneously lead to the conclusion that he’s camera shy.

But a shrinking violet Meza is not, as evidenced by this Conservative Treehouse posting, titled, Jim Jordan Questions Google CEO About Specific Example of Overt Political Bias From Executive…”

The post opens with this:

According to an email chain between Google executives obtained by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and Breitbart News, Google’s Multicultural Marketing development head Eliana Murillo sent out an email November 9th, 2016, detailing how Google had “supported partners like Voto Latino to pay for rides to the polls in key states,” which she characterized as a “silent donation.”

“We even helped them create ad campaigns to promote the rides (with support from HOLA folks who rallied and volunteered their time to help),” Murillo said. “We supported Voto Latino to help them land an interview with Sen. Meza of Arizona (key state for us) to talk about the election and how to use Google search to find information about how to vote. They were a strong partner, among many in this effort.”

Read “the rest of the story,” to get the full thrust of Meza’s behind the scenes activities.

But even with his heavy lifting, he does manage to have time on his hands. In October 2017, on ‘National Coming Out Day,’ Meza joined with three other openly gay state lawmakers to announce the creation of a new ‘LGBTQ Caucus’ in the Arizona legislature. The caucus was obviously a legislative necessity.

Meza was integral to Google’s efforts ensuring the reliably Democrat Hispanic vote was gathered.  Google and Facebook also compile massive amounts of data on those who use their sites. The Guardian has the disturbing information.

Pres. Trump refuses to cave on border wall

December 12, 2018

Democrat hypocrisy: Method acting comes to Washington

During a public, televised meeting with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), President Trump announced he would be, “Proud to shut down the government for border security,” stating “border security is national security.” Funding for FY 2018 runs out Dec. 21.

Notice that Schumer refuses to make eye contact with the President as he says border security does not need a wall, and Pelosi repeatedly states the meeting should be held privately. Following the meeting at which she admonishingly shook her finger at the president, Pelosi later maligned his position on the border wall telling House Democrats, “It’s like a manhood thing for him. This wall thing.”

Democrat stalwarts, including Sens. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Chuck Schumer, joined a roster of 26 Democrat senators who aligned with 54 Republicans and embraced the Secure Fence Act of 2006, signed by Pres. George W. Bush.  A dozen years later, Democrat’s visceral hatred of President Trump has dramatically changed their perspective.  This brief but illustrative video is provided by the Washington Post, a staunchly liberal publication.

The Center for Immigration Studies reports 63% of non-citizen households access welfare programs compared to 35% of native households. Net cost to taxpayers for every illegal who sneaks into the United States has reached nearly $70,000 —- seven times the cost of deporting them —- about $70 billion, according to 2016 federal Census data. 

Breitbart News covered a Harvard-Harris poll revealing dreadful immigration news for Democrats. The overwhelming majority of Americans —- 80% —- agree with President Trump’s pro-American immigration agenda. Those surveyed said that legal immigration to the U.S. should be based on skills and merit, rather than the current system giving priority to chain migration, linked to family members already in the U.S.

Democrats have long been hypocrites on fundamental issues of importance to Americans, as we noted in 2012, in our post titled, “Dem gun hypocrites,” demonstrating the double standard of Second Amendment restrictionists, Sen. Chuck Schumer and former Sen. Dianne Feinstein who both have concealed carry permits, but don’t want you to have the same access.


Gov. Ducey’s magical “fee” is actually a tax

December 9, 2018

Teacher pay hikes that “wouldn’t raise taxes,” find their funding source: YOU

Remember when Gov. Doug Ducey, vowed he would not be held hostage to teachers’ demands for a 20% pay hike, and then acquiesced, though promising no tax increases would be needed to fund their excessive demands for their part-time jobs?

Surprise!

Beginning Jan. 1, 2019 there will be a new, deceptively namedpublic safety fee(notice it’s not called a tax) that will be tacked on to vehicle registrations. The newspaper headline says it takes effect Jan. 1, but the ADOT press release declares Dec. 1.  Which one of these charlatans to believe?

ADOT’s website is full service, providing a choice among 103 languages from Afrikaans to Zulu, and even has a readily accessible Civil Rights Division, in case your feelings were bruised during your work day. If that isn’t enough, it also hawks specialty license plates, “for that person who’s impossible to shop for.”

The $32 fee/scam, originally touted as $18, was projected to raise either $149 or $185 million yearly. The numbers fluctuate wildly depending on the “fee” and who made the projections.  When the word “stakeholders” is used, your suspicion antenna should be on high alert. ADOT itself announced it would actually be $265.6 million! Good luck in finding that news release now. This is the enabling legislation, signed by Gov. Ducey. The purpose of this “fee” is to free up highway safety money tapped into for educrats, according to this revealing news report.

On July 13, 2018 leftist editorialist Linda Valdez wrote, “What’s wrong with Phoenix raising taxes?” one of her loads of drivel passing for a column.  Valdez is a staunch cradle-to-grave advocate. With liberals, having the government provide for you throughout your lifetime is a core belief comparable to the religious fervor she so disdains. Of course, “the government” is us.

The rest of us hold the belief that taxes are our money, necessary for maintaining infrastructure (pipelines, utilities, roadways, bridges, and military preparedness), but often misspent. President Trump’s tax cuts have, in fact, spurred economic growth. Tax cuts, not tax increases, are the means of energizing the economy and empowering Americans.

Tell that to da Dems and da Ducey.


Higher education reaches its nadir*

December 6, 2018

Illegal invaders now charity recipients, courtesy of Berkeley

Gone are the days when a university degree was indicative of attaining a higher education. Nurtured in a curriculum of liberal indoctrination from the earliest grades, students are pawns in an ideological crusade. This appalling example from Edina, Minnesota is not an anomaly, but is reflective of teaching throughout the United States.

Is it any wonder that by the time the barely out of wet-diaper toddlerdom, kindergartners are propagandized, matriculating as brainwashed high school students, ultimately reaching institutions such as Berkeley or Princeton, they engage in full-throated lunacy?

The student government at the University of California, Berkeley, “voted to financially fund the migrant caravan in a resolution passed by the student senate,” as Breitbart reported. “US imperialism and white colonialism has been implemented in Central American countries,” said a teary-eyed student, adding that she would be ashamed to see anyone in the student senate vote against funding the migrant caravan. Once again students illiterate of history accuse anyone they disagree with as being “Nazis,” although there are no brutal labor camps with ovens specially constructed for humans or gas streaming from shower heads, killing men, women and children given bars of soap to make the victims more compliant. Janet Napolitano, formerly Arizona’s radically leftist governor and Obama’s appointee as a worthless Homeland Security chieftain, is now the president of the University of California system.

On the East coast, Princeton sophomore Noa Wollstein was so offended by the “toxic masculinity” expressed in the song, “Kiss the Girl,” she was moved to write to the student newspaper, The Daily Princetonian to complainShe declared the Disney song performed by an all-male a cappella group, the Princeton Tigertones, was misogynistic and dismissive of consent. In the cartoon film, The little Mermaid, it is sung by Sebastian a talking crab, urging him to kiss Ariel, the little mermaid.

“Remove the context of magic and mermaids,” Wollstein wrote, “and the lyrics blatantly encourage a man to try to make physical advances on a woman without her consent.”

FrontPage mag exposed, “Another week of leftist lunacy,” writing, “One worrying illustration of this comes from – none other than – the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) with, chapters at more than 500 universities and colleges throughout the U.S. According to Campus Reform, the AAUP is urging its members to combat legislative proposals meant for “the protection of free speech” on campus.”

Imagine that?

Narcissist Jeff Flake continues to scam Republicans

November 30, 2018

Though nearly out the senate door due to embarrassing 18% approval ratings in his home state —- precluding even an arrogant egotist like the aptly named Flake from seeking reelection —- he nevertheless continues to act like a petulant child. By Spring of 2017, he was unable to garner enough supporters to fill a small room.

Lame duck Flake’s overriding obsession is hatred-driven. And the object of this scurrilous intensity is President Donald Trump, who is keeping his promises to the American people.  Unable to acknowledge the numerous accomplishments of the man he predicted would never be elected, Flake throws tantrums and engages in reckless, destructive actions. 

Flake has now chosen to act on his threats of stalling confirmations of the well-vetted federal judicial candidates, including six conservative Trump nominees to the Circuit Court and 15 others named to the District Courts. Flake did no such thing while his travel and basketball playing buddy Barack Obama occupied the Oval Office. Flake even worked double-time to get Obama’s last minute U.S. Supreme Court Democrat appointee, Merrick Garland, confirmed —- a task at which he fortunately failed. His latest foolish issue is having confirmations tied to a vote on a bill to protect Robert Mueller’s baseless Russia investigation, which has produced not a single shred of evidence implicating the president or his family. Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell has called the bill, “a solution in search of a problem,“ although that logic fails to deter Flake.

Jeff Flake, like his mentor John McCain, had no trouble using the Republican party to get elected. They talked a good game while campaigning, but once safely back on the banks of the Potomac, they veered left, frequently colluding on issues such as amnesty for illegals with the most radical D.C. liberals. McCain forged alliances with Ted Kennedy, Dick Durbin and Charles Schumer, among others. Flake is partnering on this legislation with Delaware Democrat Chris Cooms. Flake’s neurotic loathing is so insidious President Trump’s historic achievements, such as being the first U.S. President in nearly 70 years to meet with the leader of North Korea and sign a treaty to denuclearize the volatile Korean peninsular —- are of no consequence to the chronically angry, self-absorbed, show-boating Flake.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, on which Flake is a member, canceled a Thursday vote on over 20 federal judicial nominations The Judiciary panel, with a slim 11-10 GOP majority, doesn’t have sufficient votes to advance nominees without his support. The new congress will be sworn in Jan 3, 2019.

It’s difficult to imagine that Kyrsten Sinema, the leftist Democrat who will replace Flake in the U.S. Senate, could be any worse.


AZ Nov. 2018 Election: Snafus persist, lawsuit filed

November 9, 2018

Extreme liberal partisan Adrian Fontes, who squeaked into office by a single percentage point, now oversees Maricopa County Elections

With votes still being counted days after Tuesday’s election, are upsets in the works? In the latest update from the Secretary of State’s Office, Arizona’s U.S. Senate seat, that appeared to be won by Republican Martha McSally is in limbo as far left radical Kyrsten Sinema, posing as an “independent” has now mysteriously surged ahead by 9,163 votes — 49.08% to McSally’s 48.61%.

In the election for Superintendent of Public Instruction, Republican Frank Riggs has fallen behind Democrat Kathy Hoffman — 49.5% – 50.5%. Thank the #Reds for Ed teachers who abandoned Arizona’s 800,000 students for a week during their union organized strikeObviously giving in to their 20% salary increase demands didn’t placate them.  With the support of the leftist, Hillary Clinton-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper, public school teachers also led the vote against Prop. 305, which would have expanded eligibility for education empowerment scholarship accounts. The educrats organized to deny parental choice in education.

Current Secretary of State, Michele Reagan, who lost in the Primary to Steve Gaynor, (both are Republicans) advises 100% of the precincts have reported, raising the question where are the discrepancies arising from? And who is the final arbiter deciding when the numbers have all been tabulated?  Does extreme partisan Adrian Fontes have an overseer?  Gaynor leads Democrat Katie Hobbs by nearly 20,000 votes in a tight 50.5% to 49.5 % race.

Our votes are our voice. These results show with laser beam clarity how crucial it is to be an informed voter.

Democrat Adrian Fontes was elected as Maricopa County Recorder after longtime Republican Recorder Helen Purcell presided over a tumultuous election day after years of flawless handling of the monumental job. Adhering to the far-left party line, he ran on the contrivance of halting “voter suppression.”

A joint lawsuit by the Republican Parties in the counties of Maricopa, Apache, Navajo and Yuma has been filed challenging the signature verification process on mail-in ballots dropped off at polling places on Election Day, rather than being mailed in. Nearly a half million such ballots are still being counted statewide. Another court hearing is set in Maricopa County Superior Court mid-afternoon today.

We can’t allow ourselves to lose sight of who Adrian Fontes actually is. For some background on Fontes, we direct our readers to these posts:

Halloween’s over but AZ’s leftist goblins still haunt

November 1, 2018

Arizona’s Secretary of State is too important to overlook. Steve Gaynor is best equipped for this important post that is next in line of succession to the governor

True to her liberal roots, Katie Hobbs, the Democrat running for Arizona Secretary of State, touts her experience as a social worker as she denigrates successful Republican businessman Steve Gaynor as “unqualified.” 

Social work, a refuge of leftists, is inconceivably one of the jobs that spirited radical Kyrsten Sinema to the U.S. House. Now she’s running for the U.S. Senate.  What a novel career path Dems choose. In the skewed liberal mindset of Democrats working “over 25 years” in a domestic abuse shelter not only qualifies Hobbs to be next in the line of succession to the governor’s office, but is enough to entice RINOcrat Grant Woods to endorse her — one of a long line of liberals he finds appealing.  Like Sinema, Hobbs also had a stint in the state legislature where she cemented her leftwing credentials in every conceivable area as exposed by Vote Smart, whose motto is “Facts Matter.”

Woods, John McCain’s first chief-of-staff, has recently been throwing out teasers about running for the senate seat currently being kept warm by former Sen. Jon Kyl. Gov. Doug Ducey appointed him to fill out McCain’s unexpired term. Kyl has indicated he only wants to serve until the end of the year — leaving open the possibility that Ducey would appoint his former boss Cindy Hensley McCain to fill out the rest of the six-year term which ends after the 2022 election in January 2023.

When Ducey first arrived in Arizona to attend ASU, he worked at Hensley Distributorship, the Anheuser-Busch beer empire owned by Cindy McCain. The Ducey’s and McCain’s have maintained a warm friendship over the years. It was McCain who first encouraged Ducey’s entrance into the political arena.

Don’t be distracted. There is the very real possibility Arizonans are about to witness all hell breaking lose, even though the scorching summer has subsided. Vote for Steve Gaynor to maintain our Republican control of the crucial office of Secretary of State.
