AZ Republic shovels it for Flake, McCain

February 21, 2017

There it was blazing across Page One in bold type: “A Changing approach to town-hall events,” with the sub header  Amid Trump backlash, Republicans aim to avoid going viral. The oversized accompanying photo shows John McCain at a Scottsdale town hall meeting — in 2015.

The reporters who crafted this multi-page contrivance passing as news must regard their remaining readership as dolts suffering from amnesia.

McCain and Flake are not hiding from those who pay their salaries as a reaction to a “Trump backlash.”  They are doing what they have done before Trump’s name was ever mentioned in political circles — tightly controlling the interaction.

In the article, Flake claims he’s too busy to schedule town halls, but is described as leaning toward a telephone conference call — a device where participants can be screened.  McCain prefers to meet with employees of private businesses such as Raytheon who benefit from his position as chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

We posted this exposé in Aug. 2013, when the duo held a restricted, so-called “Conversation on Immigration” in Flake’s hometown of Mesa, hoping for a more amiable audience. The actual intent of the “conversation” was to limit conversation. The announcement indicated that due to “limited seating” tickets will not available to the public. Instead, they invited concerned citizens to Twitter questions in advance and said they may be used during the mid-morning event, timed to keep taxpaying citizens with jobs at bay.

The newspaper is partially correct on one count. Frustrated citizens are lashing out, but it’s definitely not a “Trump backlash.” They are overwhelmingly Republicans, not Democrats, understandably furious at John McCain for his continual sabotaging of the Republican president who’s been in office exactly one month. Appearing on “Meet the Press” over the weekend, McCain compared Trump to a dictator. CNN, the Washington Post, and other left-of-center news outlets were all too happy to give full coverage to the still angry 2008 presidential loser.

Arizona Republicans are incensed that Jeff Flake not only refused to endorse the GOP presidential nominee, but actually sought out leftist networks on which to appear and announce he would not vote for Donald Trump. McCain, for his part, withdrew his flimsy endorsement and then said he would withhold his vote from now-President Trump.

Republicans and conservative activists expect such actions from Democrats. Their reasonable ire is directed at the two Hillary supporting, interchangeable Republicrat Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake conveniently masquerading as Republicans whenever  elections near. This 2011 disappointment in Flake expressed in an Arizona Republic editorial speaks volumes.

The senators know they are the target of Republican resentment. We know it and the newspaper’s reporters Dan Nowicki and Ronald Hansen, regardless of their attempts to configure the situation otherwise,  certainly know it.


McCain rips Pres. Trump at European conference

February 19, 2017

Intellihub’s Alex Thomas’ revealing report on the latest pathetic ramblings of Arizona Sen. John McCain pulls no punches from its socko headline through its final sentence.

The headline,Turncoat: John McCain is a globalist shill, uses speech to the elite to attack Trump,” refers to an embarrassing speech given by McCain at the Munich Security Conference in Germany on Friday. Thomas notes “the neocon and deep state puppet John McCain attacked the Trump “worldview” in a point by point argument now being hailed in the corporate controlled media.”

For substantiation, this link to the left-wing Washington Post is provided.  It falls over itself commending McCain for his insights in bullet points.

Undeniably, octogenarian McCain is still enraged that he will never be president. His ire is magnified by the fact that Donald Trump, who has never held public office, rode a wave of populism to the White House, connecting with men and women across America as no one has, flying in the face of all predictions.

Liberals are confounded. Educrats and their propagandized charges are sputtering and demonstrating. Hollywood is in disbelief. The rest of us are either smug n our knowledge that Trump would win or jubilant as we witness a president actually keep his campaign promises. Within a month of being inaugurated, President Trump has accomplished more than most of his predecessors have in four years.

No one has ever accused McCain of being bright, but over the decades, he’s managed to partner with slick liberals such as Ted Kennedy, Russ Feingold and more recently Chuck Schumer as well as Republicrats including Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio and his obliging amnesty accomplice, Jeff Flake, allowing him to characterize himself as a “maverick” rather than an arrogant hothead who needs the spotlight as the rest of us require oxygen.

Arizona Republican activists, weary of his deceit and orchestrated efforts against them long to hear an Arizona politician of prominence speak out forcefully against McCain’s numerous betrayals, but they disappointingly remain silent, most likely fearful of reprisals. They’re making a mistake as they face midterm elections and angry crowds. 

Pres. Trump is connecting directly with the people.  Saturday over 9,000 showed up listen to him discuss his first month’s accomplishments at the AeroMod International hangar in Melbourne, Florida. When he addressed the issue of the deceptive media, he told the cheering crowd,  “I want to speak to you without the filter of the fake news.” 

They get it.


Sheriff Penzone puts ICE detainer for illegals on ice

February 18, 2017

Selling out to Soros equates to selling out the safety of Maricopa County citizens

If liberal Paul Penzone — shoehorned into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office via millions in cash infusions from billionaire Socialist George Soros — is so proud of his latest policy regarding illegal aliens, where is his press release heralding it?

In an Orwellian language manipulation, Penzone recently referred to these unlawful invaders as “guests.”

The most recent gambit of the Democrat Sheriff is that Maricopa County jails will no longer detain illegals identified by federal authorities for the U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“Individuals no longer will be detained beyond the time that they otherwise should be released for an offense.” Paul Penzone was quoted as saying. “We are following our legal obligation, to process that individual for release.”

Note the careful use of language. The word “individual” is used twice in two sentences. After blowback he’s veering away from referring to illegal aliens as “guests.”

Penzone declared the new policy will be effective immediately. The previous order was known as an ICE detainer.

During the 2016 election cycle Politico exposed George Soros’ efforts to overhaul the U.S. justice system by funding Democrat prosecutor and law enforcement candidates who evidenced a leftward lurch. It was an integral part of a concerted effort to reshape the American justice system. Soros was successful in several races, even using his $billions to oust Republican incumbents.  Paul Penzone stands as an example.

Penzone and unknown Democrat lawyer Diego Rodriguez, another Soros backed candidate, who mounted an unsuccessful challenge to Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, had a lot in common: $oros’s money.

Globalist Soros’ entry into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s race was by no means a stand alone aberration. His Safety and Justice national PAC is a part of an intricate syndicate with long tentacles reaching into law enforcement races in various states, including Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Texas. He is even funding the expansion of Europe’s “refugee” crisis, declaring “national borders are the obstacle.”

YourNewsWire posted a compelling report titled, “Megalomaniac George Soros is at war with Western Democracy.” It’s a rainy Saturday. Take time to read it. There will be other elections and though Soros is 86 years old, his adult children are poised to take the reins of their father’s evil empire.


California group issues warning about Jeff Flake

February 17, 2017

Californians for Population Stabilization has put out a series of videos identifying amnesty sellouts. There are several featuring Arizona Senator Jeff Flake.  This one cuts right to the chase:

The group’s Board of Directors issue a stern warning (video) regarding the threat posed by  massive and uncontrolled immigration and the quality of life of all Californians   Extrapolate this warning to include all Americans.

Read the  press release accompanying the launch of this ad campaign. It’s titled,Flake Continues Role as Critic, Impediment to Trump’s Immigration Agenda.”

CAPS Advisory Board includes Victor Davis Hanson, Ph.D., a Senior Fellow with the Hoover Institute and the author of  the blockbuster 2003 book “Mexifornia,”— well over a decade old, but still relevant. This is the cogent essay,Mexifornia, Five Years Later,“ printed in City Journal. After watching the Jeff Flake video exposé read the essay which Hanson subtitles, “The flood of illegal immigrants into California has made things worse than I foresaw.”

Grandstanding, longtime amnesty proponent, Jeff Flake not only refused to endorse the Republican nominee for president, he also made the rounds of liberal media outlets declaring he would not vote for Donald Trump. There is only one conclusion to draw: the iffy Republicrat gave his vote to Hillary Clinton. Keep that fact in mind when he appears on the Arizona ballot later this year.

Statehood Day: At 105, Arizona’s an eyewitness to fake news

February 14, 2017

Today is Statehood Day. Arizona officially became a state on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 1912.  The newspaper that brought news to the state’s citizens debuted May 19, 1890, over two decades before Arizona moved from territory status to an official state with Gov. George W. P. Hunt at the helm. Readers who disdain the current leftward slant of the Arizona Republic will be surprised to know that its original masthead was the Arizona Republican. Even after the name was changed to the current Arizona Republic, its publisher and newspaper magnate Eugene Pulliam and his wife Nina, held fast to the conservative tone that characterized the content.

After their deaths, the Pulliam’s vast publishing holding Central Newspapers; Inc. was acquired by Gannett, Inc. and the downhill slide began in earnest. When the daily endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in 2016, it heralded the predictable move as being “extraordinary,” writing “never in its long history has the newspaper endorsed a Democrat — for president” (emphasis ours). It certainly has endorsed many Democrats for public office along with promoting reliably liberal issues.  In fact, the Arizona Republic endorsed Democrat Lyndon Johnson over Arizona native Barry Goldwater by omission as reported in the Washington Post.

Admitting Hillary was substandard, the editorial board engaged in overt understatement writing: 

“Make no mistake: Hillary Clinton has flaws. She has made serious missteps.”

Clinton lost as she should have, a fact the editorial board,  reporters, columnists, and the not-so-funny cartoonist at the Arizona Republic can’t seem to wrap their heads around. As they mourn their loss, the content is skewed even further left and President Donald Trump has become the newspaper’s punching bag.

A month before the Nov. 8, presidential election, Dan Nowicki, McCain and Flake’s assigned sycophantic reporter wrote an embarrassing piece titled, “3 reasons why Trump is in trouble in Arizona.” The editorial masquerading as a news report, included these words:

“Despite six trips to the state as a presidential candidate — Trump on Tuesday attracted an estimated 20,000 people to a rally in conservative Prescott Valley —  the celebrity billionaire has not been able to seal  the deal in the state.”

Actually Trump won Arizona handily, capturing all 11 electoral votes.

The markets have responded favorably to Donald Trump. The Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq each hit new all-time highs Monday. The S&P 500 has climbed five days in a row and is up 8.8% since President Trump won the November election. Treasury note yields have also been on an upward trend since Trump assumed office.

Having a businessman rather than a career-long political hack in the White House has obvious benefits. Of course, you’d never know that by reading the Arizona Republic.


Stand with Pres. Trump: Elect Kelli Ward AZ US Senator

February 13, 2017

Deceptive Jeff Flake falling in recent poll

Kelli Ward has an important message for Arizona conservatives. This newly released Political Marketing International poll shows Jeff Flake in a freefall as Kelli Ward continues to pick up support. 

We’ll cut to the chase.  Regardless of how he tries to reconfigure himself, anyone who has been paying even scant attention knows that Flake not only refused to endorse Republican Party nominee Donald Trump, but publicly declared he would not vote for him. That left Hillary Clinton, whether by omission, or the active act of casting a ballot for her, Jeff Flake’s choice for President of the United States.

Continually vacillating on issues of importance to Arizona voters, Jeff Flake is also rated as the most unpopular senator in the country, according to this Channel 3 AZ Family report.

Flake has come to represent what voters despise about Washington, D.C. A Libertarian, he initially sold himself to voters as a conservative since Libertarians don’t get elected. But with his increasingly leftist stances Jeff Flake has been weak on issues of major importance. He’s a reliable amnesty supporter, partnering with McCain and the most liberal senate Democrats. His close association with Barack Obama led him to waffle on the horrific Iran deal which imperils global security and places our ally Israel directly in the crosshairs of a nuclear Iran.  He has been intolerant toward conservatives, even suggesting apurge of those wanting to restrict immigration from terror sponsoring nations, a move reminiscent of McCain’s calculated attempts to oust conservatives from the Arizona Republican Party.

In the early 1990’s Jeff Flake worked as a Washington lobbyist for Rossing Uranium — one of the world’s largest suppliers of the nuclear fuel. He was registered as a foreign agent representing the company which operates a mine in Namibia.  Flake earned between $5,000 and $7,000 per month opening doors in the nation’s capital and promoting the firm with financial ties to Iran

Acquaint yourself with Dr. Kelli Ward’s impressive bio .Check out the strong principled stands that underscore her campaign.

Arizona Congressmen who were posed to take on McCain in previous elections mysteriously lost their enthusiasm and each in turn stepped aside.  In political circles, it’s known as the horse’s head in the bed. McCain operatives don’t have to place the bloody head of a massive stallion under the covers of a reckless challenger. But the message is given and received loud and clear.

Kelli Ward doesn’t fall into that category. She boldly took on the deeply entrenched John McCain, whose deep pockets were filled with lobbyist cash and outspent her 10 to 1, outrageously lying about her throughout the campaign.

Jeff Flake is concluding his first senate term and is vulnerable. He‘s proven his disregard for Arizona voters when he described “the beauty of a six-year term” alluding to what he hopes are our short-term memories.

It’s important to make a commitment to volunteer and donate to Kelli Ward’s campaign. It matters.
