What did Arizonans do to deserve McCain and Flake?

June 22, 2018

The latest: McCain authorized IRS targeting conservative groups, Flake intentionally holding up Trump’s judicial nominees

Some ancient societies reputedly believed in generational curses, where the sins of past generations are passed down for future generations to pay their debt. Today we dismiss such tales as nonsense.

Still Arizona Republicans can be excused for wondering about the existence of this phenomena from time to time, as they ponder what horrific past acts they are paying for, having to deal with substandard U.S. Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake who give them no representation —  preferring to aid Democrats.

Now it’s been confirmed that a high ranking McCain aide told IRS official Lois Lerner to audit non-exempt groups such as Tea Parties “until they financially collapsed.” The Lid cites IRS documents obtained by Judicial Watch, which deceitful McCain initially denied as false reports.”

And Flake? The spiteful loser who polled at a paltry 18% approval rating avoided an embarrassing outcome by withdrawing from seeking reelection. Flake has devoted himself to undercutting the president, reading absurd anti-Trump speeches in the senate chamber and appearing on left-wing media networks to bash Pres. Trump. His actions have moved from ridiculous to reprehensible, as he commits to holding up federal judicial nominees who President Trump rightfully desires to appoint to fill vacancies to crucial district courts.

The left is praising the appropriately named Flake. Splinter, a less-than-a-year-old website owned by Spanish language Univision Communications, is ecstatic at the news that Flake is obstructing appellate court nominees. Our readers will remember that this type of obstructionism is nothing new to Flake.

He no doubt wanted to follow his mentor McCain, spending decades in D.C. Then Donald Trump won the Primary Election over 16 other GOP aspirants and, despite McCain and Flake loudly proclaiming they would not support him, he emerged victorious. Trump has overseen economic expansion and an unprecedented drop in unemployment. Unlike Flake and McCain, the president draws enormous, cheering crowds.

The two senators have spent the rest of their time — in McCain’s case — limited time, attacking the President of the party under whose banner they each chose to run. McCain, who has not been seen in months, managed to get to Washington for this practiced and dramatic vote, against the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare, stunning his colleagues when he cast his lot with the Democrats. It was his sucker-punch to President Trump in a senate where every vote counts and that particular vote was held up until the treacherous McCain could participate.

Remember that when the Flakester decides to primary the president. No, it‘s not a joke. Irrational Flake actually said he‘s considering mounting a challenge to Trump, although he was unable to lift his abysmal polling numbers in his home state.

McSally in deflection mode, reverts to crudeness

June 20, 2018

As AZ Senate candidate Martha McSally cowers under a cloud of investigations for campaign violations, she has veered into deflection mode reverting to coarse talk. This is her modus operandi. She used shock talk when she launched her campaign telling the GOP togrow a pair of ovaries.

Her latest missive sent out via email is first and foremost a solicitation for funds. In it, she magically bypasses the Aug. 28th Primary Election and declares that she needs to be competitive with Democrat Kyrsten Sinema.

Like her mentor John McCain, she unctuously calls us, “friend,” although we’ve never met.

Then she goes for the crude, saying “I don’t have time for BS.” She’s not referring to Barbra Streisand. If fact, McSally serves up steaming piles of BS as she attempts to BS us into opening our wallets and checkbooks.

A former military pilot, she states, “In war zones, there is no time for posturing, score settling, or showmanship. I have never had time for BS when it comes to serving our country, and that remains true for my “deployment” to D.C.” She also used the BS terminology in her campaign launch.

Her self-aggrandizing hoopla and raw language doesn’t take her far. McSally — often referred to as “Sally McCain” — receives dismally low scores from conservative organizations monitoring congressional votes.

Conservative Review  gives McSally a 38% “F” rating.  Scroll the site for information on specific votes.

Heritage Action for America  rates McSally with a lifetime score of 48% and current score of 52%. Following the scorecard are thumbs up or down indicating the Heritage Action position alongside the position of the member of congress.  Check out the entire AZ delegation.

Freedom Works scorecard shows key votes followed by descriptions of the legislation. McSally scores a bottom-dragging 39.

Seeing Red AZ enthusiastically supports conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate. Your donations will help her stay competitive against the out-of-state and lobbyist money funding her Primary Election opponent McSally and General Election opponent, radical Leftist Kyrsten Sinema.


GOP poser Bob Worsley won’t be missed by principled conservatives

June 19, 2018

A disheartened Arizona Republic has given editorial commentary space to Bob Worsley, whose passing the newspaper mourns. Worsley is still upright, but he has announced he will not seek reelection to the Arizona State Senate, where he ran as a Republican but frequently voted with the Democrats. He called it exercising “compromise” — an art Worsley claims we’ve lost — and displaying “civility.”

“Civility,” he grandly pontificates, “has become a rare commodity in political debate, a fact that worries me greatly.”

The question to ask is,“When did he come to that high-minded perspective?” Our June 23, 2012 post, “Bob Worsley: Hypocrite-in-Chief,reveals a less pretentious man, with appalling standards, who put his personal vendettas ahead of decency.

Worsley has lost sight of the fact that the two parties stand for very different things, as their platforms reveal. Every four years, platform committees devote massive amounts of time to crafting platforms that encapsulate their basic ideals. Worsley brushes the differences off like dandruff on his shoulder, saying,“There is nuance and complexity in nearly every challenge facing society. We do ourselves a disservice when we oversimplify complex issues to fit a strict adherence to political ideology.”

That bit of Worsley wisdom might require a second perusal to sink in.

It’s worth your time to read the intriguing back story behind the Worsley love-fest  titled,Worsley’s new pals at Periódico de la República de Arizona.” When it comes to political machinations in Arizona, there is no such thing as too much information. The same playbook is often used by slick swindlers, usually Dems, whose constituencies are known to be less attentive.

Now that Worsley will have more time on his hands he would do well to acquaint himself with the vast differences between the two political parties as defined in their platforms. One stresses liberty, economic growth, prosperity and refers to “God.” The other focuses on abortion, LGBT issues, encourages class warfare and sounds as though it was written by Karl Marx.

Ann Coulter explains amnesty end game to Koch Bros.

June 10, 2018

Soon to retire, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s amnesty deceit defies logic

Conservative syndicated columnist and lawyer Ann Coulter is right on target again as she takes on the big money funding amnesty for illegals.  During an interview with Fox Business’s ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight,’ Coulter told the Koch brothers “good luck” with an amnesty, noting that mass immigration has slowly handed over electoral dominance to Democrats as foreign-born voters are vastly more supportive of liberals than conservatives.

Breitbart carries the interview and report, which includes this Coulter quote:

“I’m apparently going to have to spend my entire adult life fighting amnesty. Why is this the one bill that comes up every term of Congress. How many different ways can the American people say they don’t want it. This is for the donors. They want their cheap labor. And since I suspect — I mean, I know, blue collar workers and the working class don’t want it and I think more of your viewers are probably those Chamber of Commerce types.

Good luck to you Koch brothers under a government run by Nancy Pelosi. Because that’s what you’re getting if you keep bringing in cheap labor that votes against you 70 to 30.”

On his way out the political door, and despite assurances he would not do so, deceptive House Speaker Paul Ryan is preparing to serve up another rehashed platter of putrid amnesty as a parting shot at American workers and contemptibly timed to negatively impact Republicans in the midterm elections. Trying to figure out what drives Ryan is a fool’s errand, since his actions defy logic.


Jeff Flake: Ego-driven, delusional, loses grip on reality

June 8, 2018

Irrelevant Jeff Flake, is still trying to breathe life into his dead political career. Staring down 18 percent approval ratings, he couldn’t risk the embarrassing kick to the curb Arizona voters were certain to hand him. In response, he decided to withdraw from a second senate campaign.

Flake has been wiling away his dwindling time on the D.C. stage deriding Donald Trump, the Republican President of the United States — who both Flake and McCain refused to vote for. Libertarian Flake has used the GOP party apparatus and dedicated activists to his advantage, cloaking himself as a Republican during campaign season. For his transgressions, he was even taken to the woodshed by RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel. AZ GOP leadership remained mute.

Now, as a man without a constituency, Flake hammers President Trump at every opportunity — from speechifying in the senate chamber to making appearances on left-wing media outlets.  He even wrote an anti-Trump pamphlet, he deemed a book, with a title stolen directly from Barry Goldwater’s iconic 1960 book, “Conscience of a Conservative.” The obtuse  Flake, born two years after publication, probably thought no one would notice the heist.

Now Flake has moved on to the U.S. Constitution, written even longer ago. He has determined that President Trump is exceeding his authority in imposing economic trade tariffs, and needs to be reigned in.

Learning from his Republicrat mentor, John McCain, Flake is cobbling together a “bi-partisan” effort to legislatively hogtie the president. It’s what you do when your ego exceeds the size of your brain and your political days are numbered.

Flake, a former registered foreign agent lobbying for an African uranium mining company with ties to Iran, took to accommodating CNN to declare his intentions, while repeating his foolish mantra that in today’s political environment a Republican like him can’t win. He lost his voter base for exactly the opposite reason. His left-of-center unwavering support of amnesty for illegal invaders is not a winning issue, nor is incessantly insulting the president, something he never did to his basketball playing and traveling buddy Obama, whom Flake accompanied to Kenya and Cuba.

President Trump’s approval ratings are at an all time high, the economy is enjoying unparalleled growth, unemployment is at record lows and President Trump is fulfilling the promises he made to the American people.

In this pro-Trump climate, Flake, who was unable to hold on to his home state voters, now boasts he wants to challenge President Trump in 2020.  Our response?  Run, Jeff, Run!


USAToday’s hypocritical coverage of shooter on Trump property

May 20, 2018

In Saturday’s edition, Gannett-owned USA Today devoted all of four sentences to its coverage of a man engaged in a shootout with police at a property owned by President Trump. The insert that was intended to plump up the anorexic Arizona Republic, is, itself anorexic — consisting of only three pages (the fourth is a full page ad).

Excluding the headline that repeated the gist of the compressed coverage, 101 words were devoted to this report:

Man injured in police shootout at Miami-area Trump resort

   Gunfire erupted early Friday at President Trump’s Miami-area golf resort, as a Florida man shouting anti-Trump rhetoric fired into the hotel lobby’s chandelier and waited for police to arrive for what one official called an “ambush-type attack,” police said.

   Five police officers from Miami-Dade County and the city of Doral exchanged gunfire with the man, injuring him, and quickly ending the threat at the Trump-owned Trump National Doral Golf Club, Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez said.

   Trump was not at the suburban golf resort at the time.

   Perez identified the suspect as 42-year-old Jonathan Oddi, who lives about a mile away.

That’s it, folks! End of story. There were only indents, no paragraph spacing (as shown here) in the terse report  Donald Trump is not worthy of anything other than derogatory coverage — certainly nothing that would express concern over the well-being of the President of the United States or any of his family members.

Imagine if an active shooter had arrived in the lobby of the Clinton Foundation shouting anti-Hillary Clinton invectives. Such an assault on the pay-to-play, money-laundering facility of the defeated 2016 Democrat presidential candidate would have been worthy of front and center coverage, including an oversized color photo of a distressed Hillary staring up at the shattered chandelier, with a contrived tear rolling down her puffy cheek.

USA Today editorially endorsed scandal-plagued Clinton’s failed presidential bid with this headline: Trump is ‘unfit for the presidency.’

In Dec. 2003, Gannett stock peaked at $51.14 per share. It closed on May 17, 2018 at $11.61. It’s been down as low as $2.21.

This is what happens when journalism takes a hike and is replaced by raw partisan gamesmanship.


Republicrats align with Dems on amnesty bills

May 16, 2018

Invaders have unlikely friends in high places

While they think that Americans aren’t paying attention, eighteen Republican members of congress have signed a “discharge petition” in an effort to bring numerous liberal immigration bills to the floor for a vote. In doing so, they are intentionally defying President Trump and House leadership, while weakening GOP unity and demoralizing the base of GOP voters prior to the upcoming midterm elections.

Their motivation remains murky.

One of the bills in the package will grant full amnesty to those given DACA status by Barack Obama, even as he repeatedly stated he was legally unable to force such actions. 

The outrageous effort is being shepherded by Reps. Carlos Curbelo (FL) and Jeff Denham (CA). Charlie Dent (PA), will have his signature count despite the fact he resigned from Congress this month. View the complete list of signers of H.Res. 774 – “Providing for consideration of the bill (H.R. 4760) to amend the immigration laws and the homeland security laws, and for other purposes,” Yes. That’s the brassy and vague title. Good luck trying to find the actual text.

The discharge petition process is normally used by the minority party to force votes the majority won’t allow, making it all the more bizarre that Republicans who still hold the majority are pushing this legislation in tandem with the most liberal Democrats.

Donald Trump won the GOP nomination over 16 other Republican primary challengers — based in large measure on his commitment to securing our border and building a wall. This is clearly what the majority of American citizens want.

The 7th District Dent represented is currently a top Democrat target, especially after it became more competitive under the new congressional map imposed by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The court threw out the old map in January, ruling it was an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander. This is their 138-page opinion. The justices are elected on partisan ballots and serve ten-year terms. Only two of the seven justices — Chief Justice Thomas G. Saylor and Associate Justice Sallie Updyke Munday — are Republicans.

The Sanctuary State of California has become Ground Zero for illegal aliens. They are welcomed  by Gov. Jerry Brown, though the citizens have had their fill.  A recent poll shows a majority of Californians want more deportations as their state devolves into what author Victor Davis Hanson so aptly named “Mexifornia,” in his visionary 2003 book,

In 2007 writing for City Journal, Hanson wrote this bleak assessment, “Mexifornia, Five Years Later.” Do yourself a favor and read it.  We have just been warned by the organizers of the last “caravan” of illiterate and unskilled Central Americans, who blatantly disrespect the United States, that they are replicating their last invasion effort, aided and abetted by Mexico, which allowed them safe passage on their way to the United States.

The leftwing local newspaper softly refers to the invaders asmigrants” and “asylum-seekers.
