Obama commutes tranny traitor’s sentence

January 18, 2017

Doles out plum appointments to friends

Just hours before his final exit from the White House, but still able to gleefully poke his finger in America’s eye, Barack Obama has been hard at work finding cushy government jobs for his political, tranny and sports pals — even Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law made the list. He’s also been commuting prison sentences. 

Obama has lopped off all but four months of the 35-year prison sentence of traitorous Bradley Manning the Army intelligence analyst convicted of a 2010 espionage leak that compromised national security as he revealed American military and global diplomatic activities.

In the interim, Bradley who has morphed into transgendered “Chelsea,” has weekly counseling sessions with a prison psychologist. After a 2014 lawsuit filed by Chase Strangio (who could make that up?) on behalf of the American Civil Liberties Union, Bradley/Chelsea is now allowed female prison undergarments and cosmetics. American taxpayers are paying for speech therapy to feminize Manning’s vocal tone and pitch and Bradley/Chelsea is now receiving female hormone treatments intended to develop breasts and make hips curvier. “Being me is a full-time job,” according to Manning.

Still Manning, claiming life is bleak as a transgender woman in Fort Leavenworth, a men’s prison,  has experienced “uncertainty” over whether the Trump administration will deny requested sex-reassignment surgery. 

Fox News reports that in 2016 Obama lifted a ban on openly transgender military personnel and will include gender reassignment surgery at taxpayers expense. No wonder Obama has commuted this traitor’s sentence. President Donald Trump’s administration is likely to have kept Manning incarcerated, and roll back those pricey procedures when military readiness is a major concern and the VA hospital scandal which erupted here in Phoenix, remains unresolved.


Petulant Dem U.S. Reps. boycott Trump inauguration

January 16, 2017

That smooth transition Barack Obama promised incoming President Donald Trump was just so much hot air. He has done nothing to dissuade his minions intent on delegitimizing the presidency of Donald J. Trump — whose much awaited inauguration will take place Friday.

The inauguration snub movement gained momentum when Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) declared that he would boycott the event because he doesn’t see Trump as a “legitimate president.” Trump responded saying “Lewis was all talk,” and soon news outlets were united in referring to Lewis as an untouchable civil rights “icon.”

Other members of Congress have jumped on the bandwagon, declaring they will be protesting. The list of mostly minority Democrats who have publicly stated they won’t be at the Jan. 20 ceremony  currently stands at about two dozen. The 115th Congress includes 435 U.S. House members. Republicans number 241 and Democrats 194, so the impudent dissidents hardly constitute a ripple.

We notice Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) isn’t on the list. Of course his mind is heavy with pressing issues, such as he evidenced in 2011 when he  expressed his concerns (video) that Guam would tip over and capsize, falling  into the ocean if too many people resided on the island.  More recently he has compared Jewish settlers to termitesRep. Raul Grijlava (D-AZ) is boycotting.

Jeff Flake’s close congressional amnesty buddy Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Illinois) has joined the list of non-attendees. Since Flake was so vocal in his opposition to Donald Trump that he frequently said  he wouldn’t vote for him, it will be interesting to see if he once again breaks ranks with Republicans and sits the inauguration out. We’re betting he’ll be there, letting the sunlight glint off his bottle streaked locks.

Former U.S. Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, along with their wives will attend. Former President George H.W.Bush and his wife, Barbara, will be absent. A spokesman said that “at ages 92 and 91— and all that entails — President and Mrs. Bush will be unable to attend.” The elder Bush has had serious health problems in recent years. 

Former President George H.W. Bush sent a gracious letter to the President-elect on January 10, apologizing for having to miss the ceremony, saying he and Barbara “wish you the very best as you begin this incredible journey of leading our great country.”
“My doctor says if I sit outside in January, it likely will put me six feet under. Same for Barbara,” Bush wrote, in a letter reported by ABC News. “So I guess we’re stuck in Texas.”

And the obsessive Obama? Lacking any semblance of a personal barometer or decorum, he continues to make sweeping policy changes within days of his exit and has not called on the  boycotting Democrats to act civilly as we install his successor. 


SPI Douglas follows predecessors: rebrands Common Core

January 13, 2017

Breitbart News stuns with the headlined article, “Arizona State Board of Education ‘Rebrands’ Common Core.” Yes, the same Common Core that had parents throughout the state so riled, they elected unknown Diane Douglas as Arizona’s Superintendent of Public Instruction based on her promise to repeal the so-called standards.

Seeing Red AZ celebrated Douglas’ huge win opposing Common Core as she trounced the incumbent in the Sept. 2, 2014 Primary Election. In the comment section of this post, she noted she was “honored to have our support and endorsement.” 

Conservative syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin was an early endorser. She also praised Douglas for calling out Arizona Common Core promoters for their devious rebranding scheme.

Arizona parents have previously been through this “rebranding” con. Gov. Jan Brewer and Douglas’ predecessor John Huppenthal already pulled a fast one as they magically re-christened Common Core as “Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards” — hoping no one would notice. Malkin devoted countless columns to exposing the federal overreach that aims to place control of local schools in the hands of unelected Washington bureaucrats.

In Sept. 2013 SRAZ posted “Educrat trio: Huppenthal, Brewer, AZ Republic,” exposing the deceitful scheme to which Diane Douglas appeared to be the antidote. She wasn’t. 

Diane Douglas rode the anti-Common Core horse to the winner’s circle. Now she’s exposed as throwing the race.

Taking down Trump: Like father, like daughter – it’s in their McBlood

January 11, 2017

Report regarding John McCain being responsible for passing the intending to damage, falsified dossier on Trump to the FBI was relegated to the back page of the McCain endorsing Arizona Republic

Meghan McCain, who like her father John, declared she would not vote for Donald Trump, is now attempting to make him a one-termer days before he’s even inaugurated as President of the United States. She picks up her tactics from the dear, old dad.

Referring to left-wing Hillary supporter Meryl Streep’s wasted opportunity to thank her peers for the honor of bestowing the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes, she used her allotted time to blast Donald Trump. Previously, on July 26, 2016, Streep endorsed Clinton at the Democrat’s National Convention.

Vacuous Meghan’s twitter response: “This Meryl Streep speech is why Trump won. And if people in Hollywood don’t start recognizing why and how – you will help him get re-elected.”

Meanwhile her dad, who resides in a luxury penthouse, fully staffed with 24-hour guard gate, doorman, concierge, valet parking, plus a rooftop swimming pool, gymnasium, sauna, dog walk, conference and club rooms has been but a short distance from the VA debacle resulting in countless deaths from overly long wait times.

The scandal-plagued Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center is about 4 miles from McCain’s 7,000 sq. ft. penthouse condo. For a blowhard like John McCain, that’s spitting distance from his mountain-view balcony. For all of his lip service regarding being an advocate for veterans, the problems continue.

In fact of the 146 VA medical centers across the United States, Phoenix gets the worst rating.  Hospitals run by the VA are graded on a 5-point “star rating” system. Up until now, those grades have been hidden from the public.

As noted in this Dec. 2016 post, “Phx VA hospital scandal occurred under McCain’s nose,” the self-proclaimed veteran’s pal, John McCain has never ventured onto the hospital complex demanding answers from administrators. 

McCain would rather showboat at senate hearings delving into Russian cyber threats to our national security, as he implies that our elections might have been hijacked. That’s already been discredited by James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence. What was exposed was the embarrassing communications between high-ranking members of Hillary Clinton’s staff and the media.

 The Guardian, a prominent U.K. newspaper now reports that John McCain passed documents to FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The documents are said to be “unverified “and potentially “unverifiable.” BuzzFeed, which provides a link to the documents notes the report contains errors.

In his 80’s John McCain ran for reelection to another 6-year term as though his life depended on it. He was not above accusing his able opponent, a physician and conservative two term state senator, of aiding ISIS, though he knew that was a complete fabrication. The question to ask is why?


Yes, we can pay for the wall

January 8, 2017

WaPO refuses to allow the word “Obamacare” to appear in print, but calls national border security, “Trump’s wall”

The double standard is laughable. The Washington Post insists on calling problem plagued Obamacare the “Affordable Care Act,” to remove the onus from Barack Obama. Yet here in Arizona the costs have risen an astronomical 116%, taking it far from the realm of “affordable.’

So it is when you buy ink by the barrel, as a wise observer once noted.

The newspaper, which might as well declare itself an arm of the DNC for its blatant liberal bias, tries to configure the Republican majority House and Senate at odds with itself over “the party’s deeply held desire to rein in government spending in conflict with its long-standing goal of cracking down on illegal immigration and toughening border security.”

The WaPo oddly refers to the construction project that resonated with voters as “Trump’s wall” and disingenuously ponders how the project will be funded.  The newspaper echoes the words of Vicente Fox, Mexico’s former president, who insultingly questions the authenticity of Trump’s election, and then calls “Trump’s wall” a “racist monument.”

On the campaign trail, President-elect Trump said he would get Mexico to pay for the construction. There are many ways of accomplishing that fiscal feat. We offer a simple one. Warn the recipients that the gravy train is screeching to a halt for those aiding in the invasion of the United States.

FY 2017 U.S. foreign aid committed to Mexico $134,664,000.

The seven countries of Central America: Belize: $1,250,000; Guatemala: $145,105,000; El Salvador: $87,982,000; Honduras: $105,655,000; Nicaragua: $14,800,000; Costa Rica: $1,825,000; and Panama: $3,200,000

Then add in: Dominican Republic: $22,481,000 and Haiti: $218,050,000. And would you believe? American taxpayers even pony up for the Communist dictatorship of Cuba to the tune of $15,000,000

We have not even checked out the vast amounts of foreign aid directed to South American countries in 2017 which also funnel their citizens to the U.S. Withholding or drastically curtailing it will go a long way toward loosening up money to pay for the wall.

Of major importance are the $ billions in “remittance funds” sent back to their homeland by foreign nationals illegally living in the U.S., according to this 2016 General Accounting Office study to congress, which says “remittances have become an important and stable source of funds that exceeds revenues from exports of goods.” The transfer of our cash “can also be used to launder proceeds from different types of criminal activities, including drug trafficking and human smuggling, through methods such as structuring.” The high reporting threshold of $3,000 lets individuals send broken-up payments without raising questions. This transfer of our wealth needs to be heavily taxed or stopped.

Breitbart reports remittances to Mexico rose 25% after Trump’s election.

It’s past time to rein in this sapping of our resources. In these perilous times, we need to rebuild our military, invest in our infrastructure and secure our border.


Hypocrite McCain holds hearings on cyber security

January 7, 2017

Yes, THIS John McCain. Who could forget his admission as the 2008 ultimately failed GOP presidential candidate that he was “an illiterate” who has to rely on his wife for all the computer assistance he can get.

Fast forward three years, and we find McCain tweeting with pseudo-celeb Snooki and chatting with leftist open borders advocate and multi-billionaire Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg. The suddenly tech-savvy McCain now opines no one watches television anymore. Why then did he dump $ millions into deceptive TV ads trashing his able opponent this past election cycle?

The daily newspaper, which has long assigned a Johnny-McOne-Note reporter to cover the out-of-touch octogenarian, runs a Page One article and oversized photo of McCain at a senate committee hearing with the headline, “McCain talks tough on election hacking.”

Suddenly the self proclaimed computer “illiterate” is advocating “serious consequences for cyber attacks.” Yet  James Clapper, director of national intelligence unequivocally asserted in response to a leading question, “They did not change any vote tallies or anything of that sort.”

The fact is, the much covered hacks were not only damaging to Democrats but deeply embarrassing as they revealed themselves to be everything they claim to oppose. Donna Brazile, the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee even refused to apologize for giving the questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of a presidential debate.

Let’s be clear.  Cyber attacks are not new or unique to rogue nations. But the issue here is that the damning material released shows high ranking Democrat advisers at their worst in their efforts to ride Hillary’s coattails to the White House.  The fact that she didn’t win not only rankles Democrats, but also John McCain, who previously called her a rock star “he could support for president.” Ultimaley he withdrew his lukewarm support from Republican nominee Donald Trump. Sharyl Attkisson’s informative exposé  Eight Facts on the “Russian Hacks” is definitely worth your time.

McCain’s hearings couldn’t be more partisan if his liberal pal Chuck Schumer was conducting them. The thrust of the effort is to call Donald Trump’s election into dispute and delegitimize him prior to his Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration.

Where was McCain when Barack Obama tried to sway the Israeli elections to undermine the reelection of conservative Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu? Obama even had operatives working within Israel. Not a peep from McCain about election insecurity and taxpayer dollars being directed by a sitting U.S. President to try to influence Israeli voters to vote against their Prime Minister. Despite Obama’s actions to intrude on an international election and McCain’s hypocritical inaction, Netanyahu won.


What’s going on with the AZ GOP?

January 3, 2017

It’s time to take back the AZ Republican Party

Frosty Taylor, editor & publisher of Republican Briefs, is a reliable conservative source who has unfailingly gotten essential information out to Maricopa County Republican activists. A former newspaper reporter, her commitment to integrity was honed when that was a career goal of people once known as journalists.

Monday’s Jan. 2, 2017 Briefs is loaded with crucial facts regarding the Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC) Statutory Organizational Meeting to be held Jan 14, 2017 at El Zaribah Shriner’s Auditorium, 552 N 40th St., Phoenix, AZ 85008. The state GOP Statutory meeting (time and location not yet announced) will follow the Maricopa County meeting on Jan. 28. There are three candidates for AZ GOP Chairman: Briefs has sent identical questions to each of the candidates and will print their responses each day. Jonathan Lines, Frank Thorwald and Jim O’Connor’s replies are available under the Briefs link.

Candidates running for AZ GOP office and Maricopa County Republican Committee office during the January 2017 Mandatory meetings have been asked to submit their bios and positions to help PCs get acquainted with them and their views.

Worthy of note are the shenanigans current State Chairman Robert Graham has been engaging in. SRAZ has written about his deception on numerous occasions. Here is but one example. He is not only establishment, but self-serving and obviously angry that his aspirations to head the Republican National Committee have evaporated before his eyes. Opposing Donald Trump, he takes his marching orders from the McCain/Flake cabal, who both opposed Trump. Additionally, Graham was well aware and likely even complicit in the most recent McCain orchestrated ousting of conservative, elected precinct committeemen.

This upper echelon party effort to systematically remove conservatives from the Arizona party ranks previously made the national news. In 2012, former Sen. Jon Kyl also engaged in these despicable actions against dedicated PCs. 

Be sure to check out  the Jan. 1, 2017 cartoon published by The Arizona Daily Independent, depicting how the Republican Establishment continues to wage war on the party Grassroots, as the GOP syndicate lines up against Jim O’Connor.  The conclusion drawn is, “that means he must be good….”  He is.  Of the three on the list, O’Connor is the one to support.

MCRC candidates announced for the Jan 14 Mandatory meeting election of officers, according to MCRC Nominating Committee Chairman Raymond Jones:

Chairman: Chris Herring and Tristan Manos 

1st Vice Chairman:  Aaron Flannery 

2nd Vice Chairman:  Yvonne Cahill 

Secretary: Cindy Casaus

Treasurer:  Wesley W. Harris
