Dem opportunist Rodney Glassman now a “conservative”

July 1, 2020

Current and former Republican politicians are mysteriously crawling over one another to give their endorsements to a newly minted Democrat-turned-Republican candidate for Maricopa County Assessor. This under-the-radar, but important office deals with property tax evaluations for nearly 2 million parcels and requires utmost integrity. 

In early October the bombshell broke that Assessor Paul Petersen was arrested, facing multiple state and federal charges in connection with a fraudulent adoption and money laundering scheme stretching from the Marshall Islands to Arizona, Utah and even Arkansas. He recently pleaded guilty and faces lengthy prison time.

Since then the office has been in the capable hands of Maricopa County Assessor Eddie Cook, a trusted, conservative community leader, technology expert and former member of the Gilbert Town Council where he served for nearly a decade. Cook was unanimously appointed by the Board of Supervisors as Maricopa County Assessor over 10 other GOP applicants. He is restoring trust and accountability to the office, eliminating waste and saving taxpayers money. Take time to read his priorities and accomplishments.

Conservative Eddie Cook, the recipient of a national award for improving efficiencies, is being challenged by lawyer Rodney Glassman, a lifelong Democrat operative who opportunistically switched party affiliation, hoping to launch a higher level career from this post. He has run for and applied for appointment to numerous positions as success eluded him.

Glassman has an unlikely background for someone seeking political office as a Republican and even embracing the term “conservative.” He worked as a D.C. staffer for radical leftist Congressman Raul Grijalva. He also ran for the U.S. Senate from Arizona as a Democrat. Additionally, Rodney Glassman was a candidate for state chairman of the Arizona Democrat Party, hoping to guide the statewide strategy for defeating Republicans. This post was one in a long string of offices he sought and lost. After magically recasting himself in 2018 he ran as a Republican for the Arizona Corporation Commission and lost again, just as he did as a Democrat carrying the UFCW Union endorsement.

Integrity is not on Glassman’s radar. He hosted a fundraiser for a member of the Board of Supervisors who would be tasked with selecting Paul Peterson’s replacement. The invitation can be seen here.

A genuine Republican, Eddie Cook continues to amass support and has won the endorsement of Arizona Congressman and former State Senate President Andy Biggs, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus.

This is an important election. It’s crucial to retain Eddie Cook as Assessor.  Don’t  be conned by the biggest signs placed by wealthy political changeling Rodney Glassman, desperate for a win, whose intent is to buy his way into office…any office.


Are you a Trump supporter still using Facebook?

June 24, 2020

Arizonans were fortunate to have President Trump make two stops in our state on Tuesday.  He addressed a capacity crowd of Students for Trump at the 3,000 seat Dream City Church. The Phoenix event was organized by Turning Point USA/Action, a group chaired by conservative activist Charlie Kirk.

The president was accompanied at the event by Gov. Doug Ducey; Sen. Martha McSally; U.S. Reps. Andy Biggs; Paul Gosar; Debbie Lesko; David Schweikert; State Treasurer Kimberly Yee; AZ Senate President Karen Fann; House Speaker Rusty Bowers; AZ GOP Chair Kelli Ward, and numerous other local and national political leaders, including Florida U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, a youthful conservative rising star.

Watch the #GlobalNews live stream of the Students for Trump event here.

Earlier on the president’s itinerary was a visit to Yuma to inspect the completion of the 200th mile of our border wall construction, with Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf.

Accompanying the uplifting news is this harsh reality check:

REVEALED: Facebook Oversight Board – Responsible For Reviewing Censorship – Is 95% Anti-Trump AND Three Quarters Are Non-U.S. Citizens.

This is imperative reading for Trump supporters and all freedom loving Americans. The opening begins with this shocker: Facebook oversight’s board – a new body that can overrule founder Mark Zuckerberg – is drastically, disproportionately stacked with foreign, left-wing activists including individuals on the payroll of Socialist mega-donor George Soros, a globalist who abhors national boundaries, opting instead for a nightmarish one-world government.

The recently constituted board is comprised of activists who’ve compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler and former Obama officials who have hailed efforts to remove President Trump from Twitter as “awesome.

Conservatives should never support radical leftist Zuckerberg, who at age 36, and with an estimated $88 billion is already the second wealthiest man (next to Jeff Bezos) on the planet. The main lame excuse is, “My grandkids (or kids) use Facebook for family communication.” This is your opportunity to educate them on the harsh realities of standing up for what’s right. Tell them you’ll have to be reached by email or text. Even better, a real interactive phone call, or…gasp…a letter. Don’t be above bribery. Let them know for every letter they send, you’ll reply with another, newsy note containing some money. Don’t let your family trap you onto Facebook. Stick to your principles. Remind them that you have a valid voice since they wouldn’t be here without you. Each time you talk, share a short but interesting bit of family history. Make the calls fun, newsy and show them that life is more than wordless communication on their hand-held devices, while making a leftist billionaire richer by the day.


Reacting to outcry, AZ Gov. Ducey OKs partial reopenings

May 5, 2020

Ducey will also be on hand to greet President Trump today

Bowing to pressure, Gov. Doug Ducey has issued an Executive Order allowing salons and barber shops to resume appointment-based services this Friday, May 8. Restaurants and coffee shops will be able to resume dine-in services with physical distancing measures on Monday, May 11.

This is the official “Whereas” laden document, complete with an embossed gold state seal, official signature and attested to by the illegible signature of the AZ Secretary of State.

Massive rallies by citizens who desperately want to get back to work, and were armed with petitions demanding his recall, obviously pushed Doug Ducey’s sensible buttons.

Gov. Ducey, keenly aware of the need to placate Arizona conservatives, will be on hand to welcome President Trump today. We should not forget, however, that along with McCain and Flake, Ducey intentionally boycotted Donald Trump‘s initial Phoenix Convention Center campaign rally in July 2015. So many supporters requested tickets, the venue had to be moved three times to accommodate the enormous crowd, though many still had to be turned away due to fire code restrictions.

Pres. Trump will be in Phoenix touring a Honeywell facility producing protective face masks. Sen. Martha McSally is accompanying the president to Arizona on Air Force One. U.S. Reps. Debbie Lesko (CD-8) and Paul Gosar (CD-4) are also flying from D.C. to Phoenix with President Trump.


Pres. Trump ignites enthusiastic Phoenix crowd

February 20, 2020

Reiterates his unequivocal endorsement of Sen. Martha McSally

President Donald Trump swooped in to the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix Wednesday evening to thunderous applause and cheers after speaking earlier in Nevada and California, with a return trip to Las Vegas that same might, where the Democrat debate was an internecine bloodbath — and in advance of Saturday’s Democrat caucus. Rather than being weary from the travel and speeches, he was energized, and that energy ignited the massive crowd inside and the overfill throng of thousands outside the Phoenix arena, some waiting for two days to ensure access to hear President Trump. The coliseum has a seating capacity of nearly 15,000.

He fittingly assessed the party of his strange lot of Democrat opponents, by calling it out as, “The party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late-term abortion, socialism, blatant corruption, and the total destruction of your Second Amendment.” He contrasted the Republican Party as, “The party of the American worker, the American family, and the American dream!” 

Opening for President Trump were Donald Trump, Jr. and attorney and political analyst Kimberly Guilfoyle, who addressed the eager crowd. He was introduced by AZ GOP chairman Dr. Kelly Ward. When the president took to the stage, the coliseum rocked with roaring appreciation. Pres. Trump recounted some of his accomplishments, such as appointing a record 218 federal judges and nominating two new justices to the U.S. Supreme Court, and the continued construction of the border wall to appreciative cheers as he referred to the strong economy American have enjoyed and the historically highest employment figures.

Joining him at the onset of the event were Gov. Doug Ducey and Arizona’s Republican U.S. Senator Martha McSally. He also introduced the GOP Congressional Delegation of U.S. Reps. Paul Gosar, (CD4); Andy Biggs, (CD 5); David Schweikert, (CD 6); and Debbie Lesko, (CD 8) who spoke to the crowd and named standout AZ state legislators, who joined him on stage.  Former sheriff Joe Arpaio, running for reelection, was greeted by thunderous cheers and applause as he made his way to his front row seat. The president warmly acknowledged our military including a 100-year-old World War II navy veteran, Ervin Julian, who had to be carried into the coliseum, so great was his desire to be on hand to greet President Trump.

Trump repeated, in the clearest of terms, his support for Sen. Martha McSally, saying, Martha McSally has my “complete and total support, and has my endorsement.”

Those words shoot holes through inexperienced and brash Daniel McCarthy’s contention that Trump’s endorsement of McSally was given prior to McCarthy entering the race. McCarthy uses the theme,Demand Daniel,” (interview video) though those who are making that demand must be so far down the rabbit’s hole they are impossible to hear.

President Trump closed his remarks by declaring, “Ladies and gentlemen of Arizona, the best is yet to come!” It’s a cinch to believe his second term will prove his prediction to be flawless.

 


AZ Dems videotaped teaching illegal aliens how to vote

January 29, 2020

Arizona in Democrats’ crosshairs. Republicans must vote smart

The Lid runs a shocking article complete with video substantiation, showing what is taking place in Arizona as AZ Blue 2020 attempts to skew the upcoming election. 

America as we know it, is clearly at a crossroads. Socialists have taken over the Democrat party and will stop at nothing to retain control, even if it means giving illegal alien invaders the means of controlling their party.

Previously deep red Arizona is widely viewed as a “swing state,” which makes supporting President Donald Trump and our incumbent senator and congressional Republicans ever more important.

US Senate: Martha McSally

Congressional District U.S. Representatives:

CD 4: Paul Gosar

CD 5: Andy Biggs

CD 6: David Schweikert

CD 8:  Debbie Lesko

Sen. McSally, a former two-term member of congress, is being challenged by George Soros supported Mark Kelly, the husband of former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The duo are dedicated to curtailing our Second Amendment Rights through organizations they founded that are committed to gun confiscation.

Kelly and Giffords, close associates of Barack Obama, run the major gun control-focused group Giffords PAC, which between its hybrid PAC and 501(c)(4) nonprofit Giffords, spent nearly $7 million to aid Democrat congressional candidates in 2018.

 Sen. McSally, a retired Air Force fighter pilot and the first woman to lead a squadron in a war zone is a primary focus of the left. Giffords’ PAC has spent large sums opposing McSally. The spending will only intensify as the Dems grow ever more desperate to grab the seat. Socialist billionaire George Soros, hosting events funded by his far-left Act Blue, is all too willing to funnel money to Mark Kelly. The group (then called Americans for Responsible Solutions) spent more than $2 million supporting Democrat Ron Barber against McSally in 2014.

The Kelly/Giffords PAC focuses its efforts on Second Amendment supporting Republicans, removing Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO.) with $2 million in opposition spending and Rep. John Culberson (R-TX) with a $1.2 million ad buy. Money talks. Each of Giffords’ top four opposed candidates lost their election in 2018.

In addition to making independent expenditures, Mark Kelly and Giffords hybrid PAC contributed $263,965* to federal Democrat candidates, during the 2018 midterms. The Kelly/Giffords organization has a major lobbying presence, spending $430,000* in 2018, specially lobbying for gun control legislation. 

Daniel McCarthy, an abysmally ill-prepared political wanna-be, (must watch video) is challenging Sen. Martha McSally, who is unequivocally endorsed by President Donald Trump. Your vote matters…now more than ever.

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.
