Trump-hating media unable to influence voters

August 16, 2017

Arizona senate hopefuls should pay attention to Alabama

If the mainstream media was all you depended on for news about Donald Trump, you’d be of the opinion that the President of the United States was an incompetent bumbler, who mistakenly stumbled into the Oval Office and can’t find the exit.

The liberal hatred for the man who swept to victory on Nov. 7, 2016, is visceral and unrelenting. But those who count — Americans of every stripe who put him comfortably across the finish line — remain firmly in his camp, which galls the Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton worshipers and their like-thinking media gaggle. Ultimately even the unabashedly left-wing Washington Post was forced to admit,Donald Trump just blew up the electoral map.”

The latest confirmation of President Trump’s influence is evident in the contentious special election senate race in Alabama, where Republican incumbent U.S. Sen. Luther Strange and former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore have advanced to a runoff election in Alabama’s Republican Sept. 26 primary. The seat was previously held by former Sen. Jeff Sessions who joined the Trump administration as U.S. Attorney General. Strange was appointed to fill the senate vacancy in February by former Gov. Robert Bentley. If you think Arizona politics is convoluted, try this on for size: Strange, then Alabama’s Attorney General was investigating Bentley for allegedly using state money to cover up a sex scandal. Bentley resigned the governorship in April.

“I predict President Trump’s endorsement will be incredibly important because people want his agenda passed,” Strange said after the polls opened. “I want his agenda passed. He has given me his endorsement and full support. I think that will make a difference today.”

In a strange alignment backing Strange, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is also supporting the senator. The Senate Leadership Fund, a major PAC with ties to McConnell, has pledged to spend up to $8 million to get Strange across the finish line. Politico reports the PAC, which has spent $3.5 million on the race as of late July, focused its attacks on U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks for comments he made criticizing Trump during the 2016 presidential primaries. An early Ted Cruz backer, Mo Brooks later supported Trump’s campaign, but his opportunist status didn‘t help him reach 20%.

The anti-Trump brigade at CNN foolishly headlined its wishful -thinking report, “A Donald Trump-endorsed candidate just might lose in Alabama today.”  Despite high hopes for a Trump humiliation, that didn’t happen. CNNers apparently forgot that Donald Trump won Alabama by more than 27 points in 2016.

Yet to come is a Sept. 25 runoff election followed by a Dec. 12 general election.

There is an important lesson for Arizona GOP Senate 2018 hopefuls or a Democrat counting on crossover votes. They would be wise to focus on this race. It appears the road to the Senate is paved by Donald Trump. McCain-led, amnesty supporter and incompetent incumbent Sen. Jeff Flake who was recently chastised by RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, will be running for reelection after loudly proclaiming his refused to endorse GOP nominee Trump and declaring neither he nor anyone in his family would vote for him for President.

Pres. Trump filling federal judicial vacancies

August 15, 2017

Jeff Flake’s failed efforts to decimate Donald Trump and push through Obama’s appointee to US Supreme Court have left him vulnerable in 2018

In a fact-filled report, Ballotpedia covers the vacancies and the opportunities for President Trump to impact the federal bench, which was among the top reasons Americans, weary of the rulings emanating from the leftist appellate courts, voted for him. To date, the president  has submitted nominations to fill more than 20% of federal judicial vacancies during his first six months in office —  a near record.

Partisan politics plays a key role in the senate confirmation of judges and Democrats are still smarting over Trump’s appointment of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, filling the vacancy created by the Feb. 13, 2016 unexpected death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.

Lame duck Barack Obama tried to shove through Democrat Merrick Garland to fill the post in the waning days of his presidency. Obama was aided in his attempt by Arizona Republicrat Sen. Jeff Flake, who shepherded Garland through the senate making instructions and publicly stating, “ It was time to start thinking about confirming him.” Flake, who denounced Donald Trump throughout the Primary, was banking on cozying up to Hillary Clinton, whom he regarded as the front-runner.

But American voters spoke loud and clear on Nov. 8, 2016, stunning the Democrats and Jeff Flake, who repeatedly said “Donald Trump can’t win and shouldn’t win.”

Worried that Republicans would in turn reject him and his amnesty shemes, the Internet is now filled with ads of the inanely grinning Flake, in which he is farcically described as a “principled conservative.”  Flake appears to have forgotten that the GOP is represented by an elephant, known for possessing an excellent memory. Polling shows Flake with the lowest approval rating of the entire 100-member U.S. Senate. The dismal numbers are no doubt aided by his  recently published 140-page pamphlet — generously described as a book— with the title stolen from an iconic 1960 Barry Goldwater publication,  in which he takes the Republican Party to task.

This past week Jeff Flake was taken to the political woodshed by none other than RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, who is concerned that his anti-Republican antics could result in the party losing the senate majority.

President Donald Trump wins with conservatives. First term senator Flake, running for reelection in 2018, currently has an 18% approval rating.


RNC Chair reprimands Jeff Flake with “cautionary tale”

August 10, 2017

RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel takes Flake to the woodshed for anti-Trump rhetoric. AZ GOP chairman Jonathan Lines remains mute

Readers of the AZ GOP’s Daily Updates, which inanely bills itself as “The Only Official Newsletter of the Arizona Republican Party!” — a jab at the fact-filled and widely read MCRC Briefs — would think everything was copacetic within the party hierarchy.  But a growing rift, evidenced by a stinging reprimand from on high was revealed Monday.

Speaking with Laura Ingraham on her nationally syndicated radio show, Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel issued a strong warning to Arizona Senator Jeff Flake.

McDaniel reminded listeners that three Republican senators who didn’t support Donald Trump during his victorious presidential campaign, lost their own races. Addressing the negativity Jeff Flake has continually lobbed at President Trump, she said the defeats suffered by  vocal opponents, Mark Kirk (Illinois), Kelly Ayotte (New Hampshire), and Joe Heck (Nevada), should serve as a “cautionary tale” to Jeff Flake, who already has the lowest approval rating of anyone in the 100-member U.S. Senate.

Flake’s newly released 140-page anti-Trump pamphlet passing itself off as a book, with a title directly lifted from Barry Goldwater’s 1960 transformative “Conscience of a Conservative.,” will not endear Flake to conservatives as he faces reelection in 2018. The book like its author is hypercritical of the Republican President. Among the other Republicans he skewers is former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. In an outrageous  ‘pot calling the kettle black’ scenario, peacock Flake refers to Newt Gingrich as a “character with extraordinary talents for self-promotion” Flake, who adds blond streaks to his hair, grins inappropriately to appear amiable and has sent out shirtless photos of himself, knows a thing or two about self-promotion.

McDaniel said the RNC usually stayed out of primaries but under the party’s bylaws could intervene if a number of RNC committee members agreed it was necessary.

“They need to have another candidate that they supported and the three RNC members that have to agree on that other candidate for rule 11 to apply, but it is in their bylaws,” McDaniel said. “It’s just interesting from a party standpoint, we do have governance. We have 168 members that they make those decisions. Sometimes you get in the nitty gritty, but I will say if you look at 2016, the senators that did not support the President, and let’s look at Joe Heck and Kelly Ayotte, they fell short in those Senate races, so there is a cautionary tale there because voters want you to support the President in his agenda.”

Approaching 2018, Arizonans are not land-locked. We are fortunate to have conservative Dr. Kelli Ward, who is challenging Flake. Take time to read her impressive bio and acquaint yourself with the principles on which she’s running.  Then send her a donation. Unlike Flake who continues to beg for campaign contributions, she’s not sitting on $millions in special interest and lobbyist cash.


Jeff Flake, the time to reregister as a Democrat is now

August 7, 2017

Dem to Republican switches should encourage Flake to “come out” and feel comfortable in his own skin

An intriguing scramble is taking place in the political arena. Donald Trump’s presidential triumph was based not only on the fact that he expertly outmaneuvered 16 other Republican challengers, but on the colossal missteps of liberals — such as the disastrous round table discussion which relegated Hillary Clinton to the West Virginia back burner in a traditionally blue state.

In 1992, Democrat Bill Clinton carried West Virginia by a solid 13 percentage points. In November 2016 Republican Donald Trump made those numbers look like chump change as he more than tripled that percentage — sweeping the state by 40 points.

Declining coal mining and the resulting job losses clearly illustrate the disconnect (video) elitist Dems have with their own base. Barack Obama promised to bankrupt the industry— an issue on which his heir apparent Hillary Clinton hung her hat. It was a loser and so was she.

The issue so resonates with the coal producing state that West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, a Democrat, appeared at a  rally featuring President Donald Trump, switching parties on Friday to become a Republican. The previous day, he addressed the crowd of Trump supporters estimated at 9,000, telling them, “This man is a good man. He’s got a backbone. He’s got real ideas. He cares about America. He cares about us in West Virginia.”

Here in Arizona the opposite is true. Jeff Flake has shown an increasing liberal proclivity. He said was unable to support Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, and wouldn’t vote for him. He has now come out with a book bashing conservatives, and Sunday appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” taking the GOP to task for not shutting down the “birther” movement, which he claims Donald Trump led.

The more pertinent question is: Why doesn’t the Arizona Republican Party shut down anti-GOP Jeff Flake? He has repeatedly been in opposition to mainstream Republicans and hostile to conservative issues. Yet the AZ GOP is bizarrely gearing up to support Flake in 2018. A recall of the state chairman is gaining steam.

In 2015, Democrat state senator Carlyle Begay, representing the Navajo Nation switched parties to become a Republican, saying  it’s been the Republicans who have worked with him to “improve education, jobs and infrastructure” in the tribal communities where unemployment is as high as 80 percent. Watch his video announcement.

U.S. Rep. Bob Stump represented Arizona in Congress for 26 years — the first five as a Democrat. Elected in 1976, he reregistered as a Republican in 1981 after voting for President Ronald Reagan’s tax cuts. He served as chairman of both the Armed Services Committee and Veterans Affairs Committee, working diligently on behalf of the military and veterans. In his 2003 obituary, the New York Times correctly identified him as a “strong conservative.” No rational person would make that claim about Jeff Flake, but that’s what his pop-up Internet ads are deceptively calling him.

For decades Arizona conservatives have endured Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) misspent time in D.C. as a Democrat enabler, colluding with liberals on myriad issues running the gamut from amnesty for illegals to shamefully casting the deciding vote as he sided with the unified Dems against restructuring the unsustainable Obamacare monstrosity, though rates in Arizona have soared 116%. ASS’s time has come and nearly gone, but Jeff Flake should do the honorable thing and come out as the Democrat he is. The party switch didn’t hurt Congressman Stump. He was reelected for the next 21 years.

In this recentMy Turncolumn on the AZ Republic’s editorial page, Flake is  encouraged to ditch the Republican Party.

It’s an idea whose time has come.


Sheriff Arpaio guilty of contempt, foes want mug shot

August 1, 2017

Humiliation of Sheriff Joe Arpaio is ultimate goal as newspaper runs massive front page photo of sheriff,  emblazoned with the single, all caps word: “GUILTY”

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been found guilty of criminal contempt for defying a federal judge’s 2013 order to end patrols targeting “immigrants,” more properly termed illegal aliens. Actual immigrants have followed the legal procedure to enter the United States and become citizens. The terms are not interchangeable.

The popular sheriff was elected to an unprecedented six four-year terms by Maricopa County voters grateful that he stepped up to do the job the federal authorities failed to do.

Arpaio’s defense team argued that Arpaio did not intend to defy the court order. He admitted to continuing patrols, but said his former attorney did not fully explain the intricacies of the  legal document. In 2016, after being relentlessly hammered by the amnesty/open border local newspaper, Arpaio was defeated by George Soros supported Democrat Paul Penzone, who refers to illegals as “guests.” Multi-billionaire Socialist Soros desires a borderless world,  and was described by Politico as attempting to overhaul the U.S. justice system.

An Army veteran, Arpaio was a Washington D.C and later a Las Vegas police officer before joining the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, where he served with distinction in numerous foreign counties over his 25-year career with the agency. Ultimately he headed the Arizona DEA office before winning election as sheriff in 1992.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, aware of his popularity, denied Arpaio’s request for a jury trial.

Arpaio’s lawyers said they would appeal the verdict, contending their client’s legal fate should have been decided by a jury, not a judge. They also contend Judge Bolton violated Arpaio’s rights by not reading the decision in court.

A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for October 5. The 85-year-old sheriff faces up to six months in jail on the civil charge, which it is unlikely he will serve. The ultimate goal of the federal prosecutors is to humiliate the career lawman. The failing left-wing Arizona Republic newspaper will happily fold if able to run a large front page mug shot of the sheriff it loves to hate.


Jeff Flake word thief: Steals from Goldwater, ex-Rep. Shadegg

July 31, 2017

Plagiarizes from late  AZ Senator and former Congressman

It’s difficult to veer too far from the truth when those who know the facts are still above ground, but that doesn’t stop the fakery emanating from the pages of the Arizona Republic. Dan Nowicki, the assigned sycophant covering Arizona’s senior senator, must be dealing with bouts of insomnia thee days, fretting over his future. The man he has covered for years will be 81 within days and is seriously ill with an aggressive form of brain cancer.  He’s unlikely to finish the six-year term to which he was reelected in 2016. His obstinate underling, more supportive of Barack Obama than Donald Trump, is considered to be one of the most vulnerable Republicans up for reelection in 2018.  Flake polls exceedingly low as he gears up for reelection, with a 37 percent approval rating according to recent polling conducted by Morning Consult.

 But reporter Nowicki soldiers on, with duplicity in high gear. His article on the front page of the Sunday edition is ridiculously titled, “McCain and Flake make the case for compromise.“ Where was the compromise when the senior senator obscenely voted with the unified Democrats and two other Republicrats to blow up any chances of President Trump succeeding on repairing the monstrosity known as Obamacare? Where was the unity when Jeff Flake joined the never Trump resisters as he repeatedly statedTrump can’t win and shouldn’t win.”  After Flake’s unequivocal assertion that he wouldn’t vote for the GOP nominee, Hillary Clinton featured him in a campaign ad.

Flake, who viciously campaigned against presidential nominee Donald Trump is described as having written a book that hypocritically promotes the “rejection of destructive politics and a return to principle.” Known as a self promoter and never regarded as a serious thinker, he even pathetically lifted the title of Barry Goldwater’s 1961 book, “Conscience of a Conservative” for his own soon to be released book. The crème de la crème of Flake’s word thievery is given headline prominence on Breitbart News: GOP Sen. Flake: Under Trump GOP Lost its way, Given to ‘nativism,’ ’xenophobia.’

In this Oct. 2006 article in the New York Times, then-Arizona Congressman John Shadegg was quoted as saying, ““I believe the Republican Party in Arizona has been hurt very badly by the image created by those who have been most outspoken in their attacks on the illegal immigration issue, who have created the appearance that Republicans are xenophobic, that seem by their comments and are by their comments intolerant.”

No. We simply want foreign nationals to respect our laws and sovereignty. There’s nothing intolerant about that.

Shadegg must have thought Arizona voters were too unsophisticated to find the words he never used around his constituents, reserving them for the east coast elites. Now, Jeff Flake lifts the sentiment that places illegals above American citizens.

We can do better than the frauds passing themselves off as Republicans. Haven’t you had enough?

 Acquaint yourself with  conservative Dr. Kelli Ward.   She needs our donations and our votes. Flake has amassed a mighty war chest with the aid of open border lobbyists and hard core leftists. It’s time to elect a conservative, not a flake.
