Pres. Trump’s unrivaled imprint on federal judiciary

December 24, 2019

Rational judiciary will be Trump’s legacy long after his second term

With the Republican majority U.S. Senate confirming President Donald Trump’s judicial nominations, Americans are witnessing an end to leftist domination of the federal courts. In addition to putting two Republicans — Judges Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh — on the Supreme Court, he has replaced liberals with conservative judges on the notoriously radical Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is nearing 90 and ailing. The court has issued no further updates to her condition since Nov. 23.

Completing his third year in office, the president is making significant revisions to the judiciary, so far replacing 187 judges on the federal bench, with his nominees accounting for 1 in 4 U.S. Circuit Court judges and hopefully ensuring a decisive move away from routinely left-wing decisions.

President Trump’s historic appointments have already tipped the balance of numerous federal courts to a Republican appointed majority. This includes flipping the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit from a Democrat-appointed majority to an 8 to 6 Republican-appointed majority.

The Trump administration has kept its eye on the ball as numerous other federal courts have been tilted to a Republican-appointed majority. Check out the Heritage Foundation‘s federal judiciary appointment tracker as of December 20th of each president’s third year.

Though progress has been made in reshaping courts such as the Ninth Circuit that have long been dominated by Democrat-appointed majorities, this lopsided Dec.10, 2019 vote on Patrick J. Bumatay, as United States Circuit Judge for the Ninth Circuit exemplifies the partisan nature of the process. The following day, the same type of vote confirmed Lawrence VanDyke, to the Ninth Circuit.

In both instances, Arizona’s Republican Sen. Martha McSally voted “Yea” for confirmation, while Democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema voted “Nay” in opposition. When Sinema was campaigning her slogan was, “I just want to get things done.”

This negative partisanship is the fulfillment of Sinema’s promise.


AZ Republic revs up hate machine against US Rep. Gosar

November 15, 2019

Conservative Congressman Paul Gosar doing a stellar job, riles leftist newspaper

The increasingly radical, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper doesn’t even make a pretense of neutrality in contested elections. Its leftward lurch is not confined to its endorsements, but infiltrates what should be straight news content. Columnists, relics held over from the pre-Gannett sale and survivors of the mass firings as the homeless, vagrant newspaper tries to keep its head above water, routinely target Republicans. Republicrats, such as former Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake are exempt and embraced. Conservatives are eviscerated.

A favored target is U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, who represents the 4th Congressional District (map) — which stretches from the Utah border in Arizona’s northwest corner down to Yuma in the southern part of state. President Trump carried the district by 68% to Hillary’s 28%, in what can rightfully be described as a drubbing. 

 Congressman Gosar, whose stellar ratings are listed here following his impressive bio, steadfastly supports President Trump, which is anathema to the newspaper. Though the primary and general elections are a nearly a year away, the fire is already blazing under the anti-Gosar cauldron. The newspaper’s columnists hammer him at very turn and the skewed news reports batter him for effectively carrying out his duties and representing his constituents who have voted for him since 2010. He is currently serving his fifth term. In 2018, Gosar handily won reelection garnering 68.2% of the vote.* His Democrat opponent carried just 30.5%.  A Green Party candidate took 1.3%.

In the 2016 Primary Election the tantrum-throwing newspaper endorsed unknown Ray Strauss, whom Gosar defeated 71.4% to 28.6%.

Prior to being elected to Congress, Dr. Gosar owned his own dental practice. As a small businessman for 25 years he is uniquely attuned to the fact that small businesses are integral to the success of their communities.

A quick internet search of his name and the newspaper’s turned up pages of negative articles in the rag often referred to as the Daily Insult or the AZ Repulsive. A man of faith and integrity, his tireless efforts on behalf of his constituents and the state of Arizona are of no consequence to the partisan extremists at the failing newspaper.

AZ US Rep. Paul Gosar challenged by brassy upstart

November 7, 2019

A bizarre political trend is gaining momentum. It’s exemplified by the Swedish teenage climate change activist who has been the object of adulation by the left after addressing the United Nations, accusing the U.S. and industrialized nations of “stealing my dreams,” and threatening, “We will not let you get away with this…we will never forgive you.”  Her latest admirer is Leonardo DiCaprio, an anti-Trump, high dollar Democrat donor who was recently described as “swooning” over her as he referred to her as “a leader of our time.”  The object of his adulation preemptively stated she would refuse to meet with President Trump — who never issued an invitation.

Scientists at the Natural History Museum in London have officially named a tiny beetle after her. Fittingly, it has no eyes and lacks wings.

Arizonans have their own versions of this new breed of inexperienced aspirants who take on Republican incumbents. A former Martha McSally staffer living in Prescott is eyeing a congressional run. Though not a teen, Anne Marie Ward, who is in her 20’s, has decided to challenge Congressman Paul Gosar.

She is quoted as saying:

“We need to have younger citizens step up and run at every single level to really bring our conservative values back to life at the local, the state, the federal level,” Ward stated. “We have the Democratic Socialist party gaining momentum and the Republican Party losing momentum, and with that shift it’s time for the young generation to step forward and start using their voice to represent our communities again.”

She obviously missed the fact that it is the youth vote, known as millennials, that moved unlikely Bernie Sanders, an acknowledged socialist, within spitting distance of leading the 2016 Democrat ticket. They support radical leftist Elizabeth Warren and turned out to elect extremists Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib to congress. In response, the four women known as “the squad,‘ have irrationally called for lowing the voting age from 18 to 16.

Equally ill-prepared for the U.S. Senate seat he’s announced for, is Daniel McCarthy, 34, who is challenging incumbent U.S. Sen. Martha McSally for one of Arizona’s two senate seats — one already in the clutches of Dem Kyrsten Sinema. McCarthy’s ego-driven entry will do nothing more than aid current challenger, Mark “Mr. Gabby Giffords” Kelly, a gun-grabber, who is being funded by Socialist multi-billionaire George Soros.

Youth is great. We all wish we could keep it and our biceps, permanently ward off wrinkles and graying follicles. But the years bring with them the respectable trade-off of experience and wisdom.

At 60, retired dentist and current AZ CD-4 Congressman, Paul Gosar is just reaching his prime. He’s doing an excellent job in congress. Gosar is a known conservative who earned a Liberty Score “A“ rating from Conservative Review.

His unknown challenger, not even a decade out of her teens, tells us she holds to those same principles. Why, then, does she think we need to replace him?


AZ US Rep. Debbie Lesko exposes Adam Schiff’s farcical impeachment resolution

November 1, 2019

Integrity outpaces deception

The oxymoronic House Intelligence Committee, attempting to impeach the duly elected President of the United States they abhor, deceitfully uses the term “OPEN AND TRANSPARENT INVESTIGATIVE PROCEEDINGS,” to describe clandestine and closed door meetings. Read H. Res. 660, appropriately issued on Halloween.

Applause are in order for AZ GOP Congresswoman Debbie Lesko (R-CD 8) as she exposes the farcical impeachment process with these choice words: “I’m Sorry! Adam Schiff is NOT an Independent Counsel!”  Watch her in this video clip.*

As the Democrats engage in their deception, the American people are becoming ever more outraged at the purely partisan machinations being employed to invalidate our 2016 presidential election.

The vote on the impeachment resolution was along party lines, with two Democrats jumping ship. The two Democrats who broke from their party Thursday to vote against an impeachment inquiry represent congressional districts President Donald Trump won in 2016.

The resolution passed 232-196 almost entirely along partisan lines. Bold Democrats Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN) and Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) joined every Republican in opposing a resolution that plots the path for an inquiry that will decide whether articles of impeachment should be filed against the man leftists despise because he is not scandal-plagued Hillary. Three spineless Republicans and one Democrat did not vote: Jody Hice** (R-GA), William Timmons (R-SC), John Rose (R-TN), and Donald McEachin (D-VA).

Gov Track provides the complete chart.

*H/T Gateway Pundit

** It has since been disclosed that Jody Hice’s father passed away on the day the vote was taken, a fact of which we were unaware, since the list provided no specifics.


Pres. Trump’s campaign ad exposes Dems

October 6, 2019

 Truth suppressed by CNN, which refused to run the ad

Do yourself a favor and read,Why Democrats Chase Impeachment,” by Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs (R-CD-5). Recently elected chairman of the influential House Freedom Caucus, Biggs does a masterful job describing the issues driving the frenzied lunacy infecting the Democrats in their effort to take down our president. Not only do they want to invalidate him, they choose to ignore the will of American voters who elected him.


AZ US Rep. Andy Biggs chairs House Freedom Caucus

September 14, 2019

Arizona Republicans have another feather in their MAGA hat, as Rep. Andy Biggs (CD-5) has been elected as the new chairman of the House Freedom Caucus.

The group is home to the crème de la crème of conservative House members. Arizonans can be justifiably proud that our entire GOP delegation are members of the influential group which was formed in 2015 and has grown to weld considerable influence. Other members are U.S. Reps. Paul Gosar (CD-4); David Schweikert (CD-6); and Debbie Lesko (CD-8).

Biggs, a retired attorney, previously served in the Arizona Legislature 14 years, the last 4 as AZ Senate President.

Conservative Review gives Rep. Biggs a Liberty Score of 100% and a letter designation of “A.”


Associated Press out of the BDS anti-Israel closet

August 16, 2019

This deceptive Associated Press headline, “Israel bans entry to outspoken US congresswomen,” should have read, “Israel bans entry to virulently anti-Semitic US congresswomen.”  The intentionally misleading word parsing clearly displays the media’s skewed bent, which it no longer attempts to conceal.

Far-left freshmen Democrats Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN), both Muslim members of congress, support the Palestinian-led BDS movement which advocates boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israeli businesses, products, universities and cultural institutions.

National Review recently headlined its revealing report:Omar to Introduce Resolution Declaring Support for Anti-Israel BDS Movement.” On Thursday Omar ludicrously accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of imposing a “Muslim ban,” declaring, “It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government.”

Arizona Sen. Martha McSally, who prior to retiring from the Air Force as a full Colonel, was deployed in the Middle East and supports President Trump’s resolve on the issue.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said his country is “open to critics and criticism,” noted that Tlaib and Omar’s itinerary for the trip “revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy.”

Omar, who PJ Media reported engaged in a marriage with her own brother to perpetrate immigration and student loan fraud, irrationally stated, “Trump’s Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected members of Congress.”

The women, members of what has been described as the congressional “Squad,” routinely refer to the sole democracy in the Middle East in the most derogatory of terms, and, for good measure, condemn President Trump. Omitted from their anti-Semitic tirade is the inconvenient fact that since the formation of the state of Israel in 1948, there have been Arabic members of the Knesset, the legislative body similar to the U.S. Congress. They have been Muslim, Druze, and Christian.

The U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, endorsed the decision to ban Tlaib and Omar, saying Israel “has every right to protect its borders” against promoters of boycotts.
