So very Sowell: Conservative genius takes on AZ Leftist Grijalva

April 19, 2015

Take time to read Dr. Thomas Sowell’s most recent column, ‘The New Inquisition.’

Marching in lockstep on the very debatable topic of “global warming” is the issue as Marxist U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, who runs as a Democrat, attempts to silence scientists whose free speech and divergent views interfere with his extremist political agenda. The Arizona Congressman has been writing to universities, demanding financial records showing who is financing the research of dissenting scientists, and demanding their internal communications as well. This is political correctness run amok and the right to dissent being shut down.

This letter posted on WUWT is an example of Grijalva’s witch hunting techniques in which he uses the signature Alinskyite tactics of the community organizer he once was.

The Daily Caller’s video points to 2014 as another year without global warming.—-  joining  219 months with no significant upward temperature trend.


Obama mocked the right border security idea

April 10, 2015

A piranha filled moat would be cost-effective deterrent

It’s no secret illegal immigration is a major problem in the United States. It is a devastating reality in Arizona where the sieve-like border provides a portal for a seemingly unending flood of illegal aliens, drugs and crime.

While chaos reigned on the U.S./Mexico border, former Arizona governor Janet Napolitano became notorious for her derisive 2005 quip, “You show me a 50-foot wall and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder at the border. That’s the way the border works.” 

In 2008 we were told a virtual fence was to be a technological advancement that would provide an alternative to “divisive” walls and federal agents policing the Arizona-Mexico border. The multimillion dollar project was a virtual flop and was ultimately scrapped.

Then in 2011 Obama stood at the Texas/Mexico border and declared Republicans will “never be satisfied” (video) by the amount of border protection he claimed to have put in place, although the border is more dangerous than ever. “Maybe they’ll need a moat,“ Obama mocked. “Maybe they’ll want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied.” 

2014 saw the orchestrated deluge of over 90,000 illegal children —- mostly Central American and Mexican —- into the United States.

We now read that approximately 39,000 more unaccompanied minors are expected to enter the U.S. in another surge of illegal Central American children. Their parents believe they will be given amnesty via Obama’s unilateral executive orders  and be the conduits for the absurdity known as chain migration for other family members.

The often used and obviously erroneous number of invaders of our sovereign nation has been given as 11 million for years. They keep coming. The number is not static. Immigration Counters aggregates from the latest government and private sources, analyzes trending data and provides a more accurate count of the staggering influx —- many from terror-sponsoring countries around the globe.

The 2016 election cycle is just around the corner. The illegal invasion should be a paramount consideration as you select your candidates.  Attend forums. Ask office holders and office seekers the hard questions. Don’t equivocate or allow them to bluff their answers. Accept no double talk or finessing of these critical and costly issues. American citizens are entitled to a secure homeland. Silence is acquiescence. 

The future of our nation is at stake.


Kelli Ward opens U.S. Senate Exploratory Committee

April 9, 2015

Accomplished McCain challenger steps forth

Kelli_Ward

Read her statement which begins with these encouraging words:

Dear Friends and Supporters:

I am pleased to announce that I am exploring a run for the US Senate in 2016! I’ve started the Ward Exploratory Committee in order to test the waters and I hope you will help me make my decision.

As I look to the future, I am receiving huge support from the grassroots, encouraging me to consider a run for the US Senate in 2016. Because of the outcry for a new, positive, principled voice for Arizona in Washington, I am moving to test the waters in regard to this challenging opportunity to determine if the financial and political paths to victory really do exist.

If, during this period, it is revealed that the support exists for a U.S. Senate run, I would run to give Arizona a powerful voice in the fight against Obamacare. I would run to stand up for the enforcement of our immigration laws and to secure the border. I would run to support the Constitution, smaller government and individual liberty. I would run as a positive, passionate, principled non-career politician. I would run to join a fresh, new generation of leaders in DC and end the stronghold that career politicians have had on our government for decades. I would run to be the voice that so many Arizonans long for from their representation in the US Senate. I would run to be your voice.

Her letter continues here

She can’t take on this massive campaign without our help.  We need to step up to the plate and put our money where our mouths are in order to send John McCain into retirement. He doesn’t want to go.

Do the right thing. Do it now.

We have previously covered the impressive Sen. Kelli Ward:

March 23, 2015: McCain’s mean machine gearing up

Feb. 27, 2015:  AZ 2016 U.S. Senate race takes bright, right turn

Feb. 12, 2015: Dr/Sen. Kelli Ward: Will she challenge John McCain?


McCain’s mean machine gearing up

March 23, 2015

Amid rampant speculation of potential congressional challengers to John McCain, it looks like a long shot that any of them will step up to the task. In fact, they are peeling off faster than a cheap auto paint job in the Phoenix sun. 

Schweikert‘s officially out. Gosar won‘t take on the fight. Franks has no reason to give up the seat on which he has a lock, and it will be a shocker of monumental proportions if Salmon decides to run against John McCain.

None of these Arizona congressmen are willing to subject themselves and their families to the brutality of the McCain political apparatus, that relies on opposition research —- often with manufactured results —- to decimate challengers. Having access to money to wage such internecine battles is not a problem for one who has been in D.C. since what seems like the dawn of time —- 1983. On the other hand, six six-year terms is more than Arizonans should have to endure.

Enter a strong opponent. A woman and a family physician, two-term state Sen. Kelli Ward is considering contesting McCain. Dr./Sen. Ward is impressive, which is why the long knives of McCain’s surrogates are out early.

Moreover, she is not playing coy, but acknowledges her interest in mounting a challenge in this email to supporters: “By now, many of you have heard the rumors about my considering a run for the U.S. Senate,” Ward recently wrote. “Those rumors are, in fact, true. I am seriously considering a primary challenge to Senator John McCain in 2016.”

Over the weekend, McCain’s sycophant reporter at the daily newspaper delved into Ward’s potential challenge by interviewing a blustering McCain crony who diminished her as “not a viable candidate.”  The task at hand is to reconfigure McCain’s decades in D.C. as “experience” rather than an excessive, imperial overstay in the office that the nation’s Founders envisioned as a part-time job and not a decades-long career. Citizen legislators came to Washington a few weeks in the winter —- prior to planting season, since many were farmers —- and tend to the nation’s business before returning home to attend to their own.

McCain, who resides in an exclusive penthouse condo, is no farmer, but his ability to liberally spread leftwing manure has earned him repeated censures from the elected Republican state and county committeeman who have had their fill of his RINO ways. (video under link.)  At the statutory meeting this past January, both John McCain and Jeff Flake were greeted with boos and turned backs, while other state committeemen walked out on their speeches. In retaliation, his operatives have worked diligently to purge the precinct committeeman rolls of conservatives.

Fearful of losing, he bought his last election by spending most of the nearly $30 million from the taxpayer-funded matching funds left in his presidential war chest to flood the Arizona market with advertising —- attracting low information voters, who recognize his name but are unfamiliar with his deceptive deeds.

McCain will celebrate his 80th birthday in 2016. Conservative Kelli Ward, 46, will be a welcome change. 


Kayla Mueller: Another perspective

February 12, 2015

When a young life ends, it is always a wrenching tragedy.  When the death occurs far from home, questions abound and grief-stricken family and friends try in vain to piece together the puzzle —-  finding it never quite fits. Not now. Not ever.

In the case of Prescott-born Kayla Mueller, a photogenic 26-year-old, the angst leaps out in daily news reports peppered with personal stories and smiling photographs of a young woman that tug at our hearts. We read editorials and articles that cite her “global journey” which was “steered by those most in need.”

Nothing quite explains the path that led her to be held as a hostage by terrorists a world away —- known by the acronym ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) and eventually lose her life in their captivity.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has ordered flags statewide lowered to half-mast. She has been praised as a humanitarian by Arizona’s U.S. Senators and members of Congress, as well as national leaders of both political parties. Jeff Flake, speaking from the senate floor described the woman he never met as “sparkling.”

There is another facet of this picture that raises questions yet to be examined. Kayla Mueller’s own writings illuminate her support for, and aid to, Palestinian Arab terror groups, even acting as a human shield for them, along with her active participation in anti-Israel protests. This revealing Op-Ed from Wednesday’s edition of Israel National News is a must read for the rest of the story

McCain v. Sinema: Ponder that sticky wicket

February 3, 2015

It’s a rare occurrence when we link directly to a report in the Arizona Republic, but this “exclusive” by Rebekah L. Sanders spiked our interest. It focuses on a new fundraising mechanism, “Getting Stuff Done” or GSD PAC, put together by and for the benefit extreme leftist U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (AZ CD-9).

Kalik & Associates, a self-described “progressive” soup-to-nuts beltway political consulting firm, lists Sinema as a client, and prominently displays a Politico article from Nov. 2014, congratulating her on being selected as the Dem’s chief deputy whip for the 114th Congress. It includes what easily could have been an overlooked predictive quote from Sinema:

That position often serves as a steppingstone for ambitious members who seek higher spots at the Democrats’ leadership table and is a get for the freshmen Democrat.

“Americans are fed up with the gridlock in Washington, and the tone in Congress needs to change. I look forward to working with Whip Hoyer and the rest of the Whip team to create opportunity, support veterans and get things done for Arizona families,” Sinema said.

There’s that reference to her newly created image as the one “Getting Stuff Done.”

Kyrsten Sinema has spent recent years recrafting her image. She has come full circle —- from a combatively foul-mouthed, in-your-face bi-sexual, avowed atheist, defamer of married women, anti-Israel, communist-party connected, open-borders advocate and anti-military anarchist —- to taping soft campaign ads in which she expresses her deep concern to the grieving parents of a serviceman who committed suicide.

If her plans include mounting a challenge to either Sen. John McCain or Jeff Flake, it will set up a political upheaval not seen since the 1970’s when incumbent congressmen John Conlan and Sam Steiger roughed each other up and Democrat Dennis DeConcini waltzed into the U.S. Senate they were vying for. There would not be an internecine bloodbath with this scenario, but simply envisioning the havoc sets teeth on edge.  

John McCain’s mother advised the Republicans she knew had no use for him to “hold their nose,” and vote for John in 2008 when he ran against Barack Obama. We did it then. This might be the bridge too far far-left radical Sinema is banking on.

For a full picture of this deceptive changeling now representing CD 9, acquaint yourself with Guy Benson’s Townhall exposé included in this post, Kyrsten Sinema: Far-left radical AZ CD 9 Dem exposed. A link to Breitbart’s Big Government coverage by Trevor Loudon is included in AZ’s Big Red: Kyrsten Sinema’s Commie ties revealed.

Then reach for an Alka-Seltzer.

 


AZ U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon slips on pick

January 21, 2015

Pick_axe

Imagine you’re an Arizona member of congress and could invite anyone in the entire state to travel to Washington, D.C. as your guest to attend Barack Obama’s State of the Union address last night.

With a wide array of worthy conservatives to choose from, U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon,* who gives lip-service to being anti-establishment, confounded many with his selection of KFYI’s marginal talk show host Mike Broomhead.

Broomhead devotes interminable time to sycophantically interviewing the repeatedly censured John McCain, and was a dependable fawning lackey to former Gov. Jan Brewer, who took her marching orders from McCain strategists. 

An A-Lister Salmon might have considered? Former Maricopa County Republican Chairman A. J. LaFaro, would have been an excellent conservative message-sending choice. The message Broomhead sends is one of subservience to the AZ GOP’s elites.
