Failed prez candidate McCain threatens Trump, Arizonans

November 21, 2016

Better brush up on our spelling

According to John McCain’s assigned sycophantic reporter at the daily newspaper, the elderly senator is not only warning President-elect Donald Trump that the Republican controlled U.S. Senate “will not be his rubber stamp,” but he won’t rule out running again for another 6-year term at age 86. We can imagine him mumbling under his breath, “No one can do the job like me.” (video)

Dan Nowicki quotes McCain as saying, “I feel great; my mother will be 105 in February.”

Our Monday morning prediction? We’re going to have to learn to spell Giuliani, as in Secretary of State. Mitt Romney was a bridge too far as a 2008 and 2012 candidate.  He‘d be a mega mistake as incoming President Trump’s  foreign policy adviser.


Dem mayors defiantly protect sanctuary cities

November 16, 2016

Democrat mayors are primed to challenge Republican President-elect Donald Trump over sanctuary cities, which provide safe havens for illegal foreign nationals. As an example, Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel — a onetime chief-of-staff to Barack Obama —–  states his unequivocal support for illegal aliens, (25-second video) “clearly” preferring them to providing safety to the legal citizens of Chicago. Mayor Emanuel, who presides over a city with body bag statistics rivaling many war zones, declares, “ Let’s be clear about what Chicago is. It always will be a sanctuary city. You are safe in Chicago. You are secure in Chicago. You are supported in Chicago.”

Center for Immigration Studies provides a fact-filled reportSanctuary Cities Continue to Obstruct Enforcement, Threaten Public Safety by Jessica Vaughan. Brazenly reaffirming their sanctuary city status immediately after the Nov. 8 election are the mayors of Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle.  They are part of a network of cities, counties, and states that have laws, ordinances, regulations, resolutions, policies, or other practices that obstruct immigration enforcement and shield criminals from ICE. Arizona has at least five such cities. Scroll down link for the list.

In 2009, then Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon defended the city’s sanctuary city policy. Current Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, a liberal and connected Democrat, has pushed for ID cards for illegals, but stays clear of addressing the city’s policy of providing sanctuary.  Stanton intends to run for Secretary of State, which has often been the direct route to the governor’s 9th floor office.

Phoenix citizens trying to directly contact Stanton’s office find it requires sending an email with a warning that the contents are subject to disclosure under the Public Records Law.

Donald Trump made the illegal invasion a focal point of his presidential campaign — an issue that accounted in large part for his victory.

After being elected  to an unprecedented six four-year terms, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio fell victim to the millions in cash infusions open borders, multi-billionaire George Soros generously gave to Democrat candidate Paul Penzone. Arpaio was also battered incessantly by the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) which is zealously pro-amnesty for illegals aliens. In addition to being vilified by the left and the federal courts for enforcing the law — which is what made him so popular with the citizens of Maricopa County.

Along the way, the career lawman gained national recognition and is often interviewed on network and cable television news. He’s traveled with Republican President-elect Donald Trump and introduced him at rallies in Arizona and across the country.  Joe Arpaio and Donald Trump have both put the massive problem of the illegal invasion front and center. As president, Trump should withhold federal funding to any jurisdiction that refuses to cooperate with ICE or other law enforcement agencies.


Trump’s victory exposes McCain, Flake’s hypocrisy

November 13, 2016

In the weeks preceding the Nov. 8 election, Arizona’s two pretentious Republicrat senators John McCain and Jeff Flake went to great lengths denigrating Donald Trump — they each made a grand show of saying they would not vote for him.  McCain’s statement can be read here.  One of Jeff Flake’s many public declarations on the subject is here.

Now Trump is the president-elect, and the duplicitous duo are vying to be the one to plant the most kisses on his posterior. These two hypocrites would do well to remember that the symbol of the Republican Party is the elephant — noted for it’s excellent memory. Since both McCain and Flake are unreliable squish Republicrats, we should never forget that they each voted against Trump.  Regardless of how you slice it, those were votes for Hillary Clinton — who is as much a bottom dragger in the areas of honesty and trustworthiness as these two goons are. The Daily Caller noted that John McCain’s abysmal 30 percent approval rating was topped only by Jeff Flake, whose approval rating has fallen to 27 percent!

McCain’s change of heart tweet:

“Congrats to President-Elect Donald Trump. As Chairman of the Armed Service Committee, I’ll work to confront national security challenges and support troops.”

The words McCain publicly used to describe his own wife were far worse than what  he claimed was so offensive.

Jeff the Flake was also quick to lavish praise:

 “Congrats to President-Elect Trump on a big win and a gracious and healing speech. I look forward to working with him. Now, back to eating crow.”

Flake’s son Tanner used far more offensive language, denigrating any and all on his Facebook postings. Tanner never had to acknowledge his despicable behavior and apologize.  Daddy apologized for him.

Hypocrisy is the name of the game with these two fraudulent Republicans. Trust them at your own peril.


Phx Councilman DiCiccio voting for Soros funded Penzone

November 6, 2016

If you’re a Republican or Independent residing in District 6 who still has an unmarked ballot you’re planning  to take to your polling place on Election Day Tuesday Nov. 8, this news is not too late for you.  Unfortunately, many others have been conned by Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio, who at the eleventh hour has publicly revealed himself as a Paul Penzone voter.

This is the same rough ’er up Paul Penzone —  a  Democrat former Phoenix Police Sergeant who was put on administrative leave after a domestic violence incident that included the issuance of an order of protection against him by his then-estranged wife.  Under the order, Penzone was unable to possess firearms — making it difficult to carry out his duties as a police officer. Now he wants to be elected as Maricopa County Sheriff in his second challenge to Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

This is the same Paul Penzone who is now accepting tainted, strings-attached $millions in campaign funds from radically left-wing globalist George Soros.  Multibillionaire Soros, who abhors national borders, is currently focusing on electing lenient prosecutors and law enforcement officials across the U.S. In addition to funding Penzone, Soros is also a longtime political benefactor of Hillary Clinton and John McCain.

Politico reports on America-hating, anti capitalist George Soros’ quiet efforts to overhaul the U.S. justice system. Here in Maricopa County he is also targeting County Attorney Bill Montgomery, looking to replace him with committed leftist Diego Rodriguez.

Although the Phoenix City Council and Mayor deviously run as “non-partisans,” voters who pay attention know their political bents. Sal DiCiccio has even scored points wagging his GOP credentials, which makes his treachery even more abhorrent.

In this recent article in the Ahwatukee Foothills News, DiCiccio — whose district encompasses Ahwatukee — ripped Sheriff Joe Arpaio in an interview, but stopped short of encouraging support for Arpaio’s opponent, Democrat Paul Penzone, since he would then risk being sanctioned by the Republican Party.

“But I can tell you that nobody in my family is voting for Joe, and that’s really, really hard because I like him personally and I like many of his policies,” DiCiccio claimed.

With friends like Sal DiCiccio, who needs enemies?

This is the same Sal DiCiccio who refers to liberal Tempe Mayor and single-term Democrat Congressman Harry Mitchell as his early mentor. DiCiccio cut his political fangs working in John McCain’s office. Yes, the same McCain who also wants our vote, after withdrawing his support from GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Slipperiness abounds. In Jan. 2010 the Arizona Republic reviewing conflict of interest dealings along a proposed freeway route wrote that it “took a closer look at DiCiccio’s possible stake in the planned 22-mile freeway, examining city financial forms and court records, plus letters, e-mails and other documents obtained under a public-records request. The picture that emerged shows that DiCiccio:” full report here

Seeing Red AZ stands with Republican career law enforcement professional, Sheriff Joe Arpaiowho does the job Maricopa County citizens elected him to do over six consecutive terms. He speaks plainly and speaks the truth. It’s not difficult to understand. 


Hillary Clinton should be indicted, not elected

November 3, 2016

What will it take for the Arizona Republic to withdraw its endorsement?

With less than a week before Election Day, Hillary Clinton’s scandals have grown at breakneck speed. Extending past the private mail server located in her basement which compromised national security and the money-making machine and pay for play scheme, selling access to then-Secretary of State Clinton —  inextricably entangled with the Clinton Foundation. We’ve read with disgust how Democrat strategist and interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile acknowledged in a now disclosed email to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, “From time to time I get the (townhall/debate) questions in advance.” Guess who she passes them along to? 

As the walls began closing in, Hillary Clinton’s closest aides and advisers were given immunity.

National Review’s Andrew C. McCarthy writes, “The Clinton E-mails Are Critical to the Clinton Foundation influence peddling Investigation.”

All of this deceit leads to at the highest levels. The latest disclosures involve recordings detailing that FBI agents felt they had sufficient evidence to pursue an indictment of Hillary Clinton, but were shut down by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s Department of Justice. 

Yes, the same Loretta Lynch who had a private jet-board meeting with Bill Clinton on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport — ostensibly to discuss Bill’s golf game and grandchildren — as Hillary’s mounting legal problems were worsening. Despite reaching political heights, the self identified po’ boy from Hope, Arkansas still function as a power obsessed hick.

Even Barack Obama is weighing in on the FBI‘s investigation, as he watches his ‘third term’ drop like a rock, declaring, “We don’t operate on innuendo, incomplete information or leaks.” Democrats Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, great fans of the FBI Director just last month, are now piling on James Comey for reopening the investigation. The FBI Director’s term is ten years long for a reason.

Bypassing mere politics by a mile, with raw criminality front and center, the likelihood of a Clinton indictment is worth betting on.


Kelli Ward challenges Hillary-supporting RINO Jeff Flake in 2018

October 31, 2016

Republicrat egocentric contrarian needs to go

In an email titled, “Help me drain the swamp!,” Kelli Ward announces her intent to challenge first term Sen. Jeff Flake in 2018. Flake has determinedly worked to undermine Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump while essentially giving his full-throated support to corrupt, scandal plagued liberal Hillary Clinton.

In one of her final essays, conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly exposed Jeff Flake as a “disreputable globalist.” She had previously written “Trump battles globalist Republicans,” which we covered in Schlafly: Trump treated with hostility; Flake leads the pack.

Except for a stint leading the Libertarian, “limited government” Goldwater Institute, a fiscal but not social conservative group, Flake has spent his career at the public trough, even breaking his own pledge to term limit himself to stay in the heady atmosphere of Washington, DC. Searching all of the laissez-faire Goldwater categories, even “regulations,” we were unable to find a word either pro or con on Prop. 205 the disastrous effort to legalize recreational marijuana on the Nov. 8, General Election ballot. Silence often speaks louder than words.

In the early 1990s Flake was a registered foreign agent for Rossing Uranium, a company operating a mine in the South African country of Namibia that is among the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel —- partially owned by Iran. He earned approximately $7,000 monthly opening doors in the our nation’s capital and promoting the firmaccording to records obtained by National Journal, which writes, “Flake’s little-known time in the influence industry stands in contrast to his carefully cultivated image as a Washington outsider.” As a lobbyist he gained D.C. access for the nefarious uranium dealers.

Flake is oozy with Obama, as a regular traveling companion and White House basketball teammate. Senate Conservatives Fund noted that Flake was one of only two Republican senators who disappointingly didn’t vote on whether to cut off debate giving the Democrats the power to fund Obamacare. The conservative vote was “Nay.” His leftist votes on matters of extreme impotence can be seen here. Conservative Review rates Jeff Flake an “F along with is mentor John McCain. Gun Owners of America asks,How Many Times Will Jeff Flake Stab Gun Owners in the Back? — One time? Or four?Flake rates a zero from the League of Conservative Voters.

Despite the Arizona Republic’s super-sized efforts at whitewashing and repackaging him, Flake is beatable. Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and two-term conservative state senator has been through the McCain wood chipper— he actually accused her of being soft on ISIS terrorists! — and is ready to take on the marginal Flake.

Though Flake gives lip service criticizing government waste and advocates reducing federal spending, he is a committed proponent of the illegal invasion of the United States. The two issues are incompatible with one another, with costly benefits and numerous other services illegals access soaring astronomically, as they displace American workers in a still depressed economy.  Don’t look for Jeff Flake to address what Immigration and Customs Enforcement refers to as acrisis situationon our porous border as illegal aliens boldly invade the U.S., claiming “refugee” status.

In fact, Flake and McCain were the architects of the Gang of Eight amnesty bill on which they colluded with the most liberal Senate Democrats, including Charles Schumer and Richard Durbin, and a couple of other Republicrats.

When Flake was in the House of Representatives, radical leftist Luis Gutierrez (D-Illinois) Flake’s close associate and co-sponsor of amnesty legislation, wrote an article, “The Numbers Are On Our Side,” for Progress Illinois, in which he specifically thanked Jeff Flake for helpingturn more red states blue.”

In 2012, flagrant phony Flake was given more than a lift by McCain and retiring Sen. Jon Kyl. Even so, he barely made the cut against former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona.

As evidenced by his actions, his associations and his votes, Jeff Flake is beatable. Conservative Kelli Ward is up to the task. She needs our help to be competitive.


Regents taking their name too seriously

October 29, 2016

The dictionary’s first definition of the noun “regent”:

1. a person appointed to administer a country because the monarch is a minor or is absent or incapacitated.

 The Arizona Board of Regents is the governing body of Arizona’s public university system, providing policy guidance to the state’s three universities.The Governor appoints eight volunteer members for staggered eight-year terms. Obviously they have a job to do — but we, the citizens of Arizona are neither absent nor incapacitated. As taxpayers, parents and students, we foot the bill for the ever increasing tuition and fees to ensure the university presidents get their overly generous salaries, perks and bonuses. The following two posts provide a bit of perspective:  Michael Crow, Sybil Francis: A$U’s pricey duo is from Feb. 2013. In 2014, we pointed out what a deal we were told we were getting for our money: Gifting ASU’s Prez with $95K raise+benies = one helluva deal.

This was the benign sounding Oct. 26, 2016 meeting notice regarding the “possible direction to the University of Arizona regarding its colleges of medicine.

The front page article in the daily newspaper the next day, carried a more ominous headline, “Regents end inquiry into UA medical school in Phoenix, but keep report under wraps.”  The newspaper account details the closed-door hearing and refusal of the media request to release a copy of the report after the Arizona Medical association, representing 4,000-member doctors, requested an independent review of the circumstances surrounding the departures of Dr. Stuart Flynn, longtime dean of UA’s Phoenix medical school, and a half-dozen leaders on his management team. The medical association wanted the consultant’s review to include interviews of Flynn and other departed leaders.

The article also included this separately boxed haughty comment from Greg Patterson, the chairman of the Board of Regents: “The board does not believe that additional board inquiry is necessary at this time.”  Period. End of discussion.

The Regents include lawyers, lobbyists, a doctor, business and civic leaders, a Hopi tribal leader and educators. We might be better served with a few construction workers, waitresses and auto mechanics in the mix — regular folks who struggle to send their kids to college. The arrogance level might decline to more acceptable levels.
