McCain curses conservatives from US Senate chamber

July 26, 2017

Ailing John McCain returned to Washington on Tuesday to cast a vote on the latest version of healthcare reform. This is the procedural vote tally.

And whadda’ya know? McCain used the occasion to read a scripted speech disparaging conservatives. He didn’t call them that, of course, as he denounced them, declaring, “To hell with them!”

Arizona’s senior senator, not known for decorum, coarsely dispensed this sage advice, “Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio, and television and the Internet. To hell with them!” Longtime Democrat colluder McCain who has worked feverishly to bring down President Donald Trump, then offered a peculiar proposal, “Let’s trust each other.”

Exactly how does President Trump trust the single person who is doing the most to obliterate his presidency?

Obscuring McCain’s verbal assault the slavishly loyal Arizona Republics front page used a declaration of war sized headline to lavish him with praise.


Prepping for Meghan? Would Gov. Ducey actually do it?

July 21, 2017

On the heels of the disclosure that Arizona Sen. John McCain is battling brain cancer, comes a barrage of Meghan McCain image polishing in the local newspaper.

Thursday’s front page features a massive photo of the nearly 81-year-old senator with a report on the “aggressive, tough to treat” malignancy. It also includes this tweet from daughter Meghan, in which she says of her father, “….like any daughter, I cannot and do not want to be in a world without him.”

Page 7 carries a full page report, headlined,: “Meghan McCain: He is the toughest person I know.”  But the editorial is what was the attention grabber, the hard copy version is headlined, “Meghan McCain emerges with poise and eloquence.”  It would be difficult for Arizonans to equate this description  with the coarse, tattooed, motor mouth who complained that her father’s presidential campaign ruined her sex life, calling his failed effort a “libido killer” and even throwing in a slam to her much classier mother. The editorial, referring to John McCain as “one of the most influential leaders of our time,” was a rehash of his legendary heroism, disputed (video) by those who were imprisoned with him in Vietnam and members of congress who questioned his permanently shutting down access to POW and MIA records.

The online version of the editorial is even more blatant, “Our View: John McCain’s legacy is in good hands.” Sounding more appropriate for an obituary, this creepy praise came as John McCain is still among us.

Despite being bewildering it’s clear the Arizona Republic is pushing for Gov. Doug Ducey to appoint the marginal Ms. McCain to fill the senate seat occupied by her father. Ironically, it wouldn’t be much of a push, since the governor and senator have a longstanding connection dating to the  early 1980s when Ducey moved to Arizona to attend Arizona State University, and began working at Hensley& Co., the Anheuser-Busch distributor owned by Cindy McCain.

None of his 6 other children (2008) rate this syrupy coverage or even a mention.

Meghan McCain’s Republican credentials have always been suspect. A social liberal, she became a Republican as a Father’s Day surprise, in a display of “commitment” to her Dad. It’s worth noting that at the time, he was the GOP nominee for the U.S. Presidency. Like her father, Meghan refused to vote for Republican nominee, now President Donald Trump.

Even plagued with serious health problems, John McCain continued to lash out at President Trump, who, joined by First Lady Melania, sent him warm wishes after hearing of the serious diagnosis.


Elvia Diaz or Russell Pearce: Who’s the hate monger?

July 19, 2017

The leftwing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic outdid itself with a hate-laden, incendiary screed passing itself off as an editorial.  Elvia Diaz, the heir apparent to long-in-the-tooth Linda Valdez, must have missed her dose of Prozac as she took to the keyboard in a venomous rant against Russell Pearce. The threatening headline reads, “You’ve got our attention, Russell Pearce, and we’re ready for you.”  Whether the readiness includes more than words is left to speculation.

Who is Russell Pearce? He’s the former Arizona Senate President who has dedicated his life to others. A brief overview includes serving as a Maricopa County Deputy Sheriff, promoted to Chief Deputy, Justice of the Peace and pro tem judge. He served in the military. Pearce has been the director of state agencies and is now Chief Deputy of the Maricopa County Treasure’s Office. He was also instrumental in the passage of Arizona’s SB1070. As you read his full and impressive bio, it becomes clear this is a man who stands head and shoulders above the crowd. 

What has Diaz so riled up is the fact that the respected investigative and  legal watchdog Judicial Watch and Pearce have joined forces requesting Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich sue the state Board of Regents for skirting a recent Arizona Court of Appeals decision denying illegal aliens in-state tuition rates.

In Diaz’ fantasy world, the illegals have morphed into venerated “immigrants” and “dreamers.”  And patriot Pearce?  He is worthy of a voluminous assault, exemplifying a new low in journalistic standards. Here are a few examples taken directly from the editorial with Diaz’ smiling photo smugly attached:

Russell Pearce is described in the opening sentence as the man “behind Arizona’s infamous, anti-immigrant law…we thought we sent to the depths of irrelevancy.”

Pearce, she construes, “Is attempting a comeback, with his divisive and corrosive rhetoric clearly intact.” Because he has worked and earned retirement in the state legislature, law enforcement, and the judicial system and he doesn‘t think Arizona’s taxpaying citizens should be forced to underwrite illegals by gifting them with  in-state tuition,  Diaz refers to him as a “disgraced, triple-dipping bigot.”

Diaz goes on, “It’s a mistake to dismiss Pearce as the lunatic, publicity-hungry politician some Arizonans love to loathe.” At least she conceded it’s only “some“ loathers. Most of us regard the man whose personal motto is “faith, family freedom — above all else,” with respect.

The diatribe ends with this sunny thought, “The stars have aligned in his favor. Donald Trump’s election to the White House makes it all too plain that people like Pearce remain in our midst.

We can’t become too distracted with Trump to ignore them. We must remain ready to fight their kind of intolerance.”

Long known to be in the grasp of death throes, the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) continues to insult its dwindling reader base.

In the skewed thinking of the radical left, it’s intolerant to want to secure our border and deny undeserved benefits to invaders. They are poised to fight for the hordes over our own citizens.


Pres. Trump: An unconventional man of the people

July 5, 2017

The actual outliers are Flake and McCain

Arizona’s U.S. Senate duo appear to be genetically predisposed to hurling abuse at President Donald Trump. In their latest gig, John McCain and Jeff Flake are expressing feigned “disappointment” and even “embarrassment” over Trump’s retaliatory tweets to TV co-hosts who relentlessly disparage him.

There‘s nothing wrong with defending one‘s self. It’s basic to survival. Parents teach that to their kids.

Trump’s Arizona antagonists are remarkable paragons of temperament and discipline. Lacking basic propriety, they both took the low road in publicly declaring they would not vote for Donald Trump after he won the Republican nomination. He wasn’t couth enough for them. In response to this grand scale defection, the limp-wristed AZ GOP went mute. 

Americans knew they were electing a New York style, aggressive entrepreneur not used to being constrained by the slick superficiality specialized in by career politicians. The fact that he’d never held political office offered its own brand of appeal. 

After eight years of Barack Obama’s unparalleled lies and visible contempt for the taxpaying citizens, unconventional Donald Trump offered a refreshing alternative. When he promised to “Make America Great Again” and “bring back American jobs” the words resonated with Americans weary of the indefensible status quo.

Donald Trump is his own man, not a malleable politician with his finger to the wind. By every measure, he is passionate leader who has shown that his campaign promises were not just words, but plans to be put into action. Since he assumed office Jan. 20, 2017, he has done just that. The large crowds Trump generates are a testament to his continued appeal.

Flake, a committed amnesty proponent, is running for reelection in 2018. Though he continually sends out email pleas for money to “fight the Democrats,” he is sitting atop a pile of dough. By citing “the Democrats” as his challenger, Flake ignores the fact that he has a primary challenger. It’s true Dr. Kelli Ward doesn’t have the lobbyists’ millions that have flowed easily to Flake in the symbiotic quid pro quo world of DC politics. Kelli Ward needs our help.  Flake responds to the lobbyists.  She will respond to us.

In a recent article by McCain’s assigned reporter Dan Nowicki — now doing double duty for Jeff Flake —  it’s all too clear he has a burden  trying to reconfigure arrogant libertarian-leaning, former lobbyist Flake into a Republican with broad-based appeal. Nowicki latches onto the “Democrats are coming!” routine, writing 15 paragraphs before acknowledging that Flake has a Primary challenger. Kelli Ward is not just a challenger, but a highly intelligent, conservative Republican. Wouldn’t that be a rare treat?

Polls show lagging support for Flake. Republican activists who supported GOP nominee Trump feel betrayed by those they worked to put into office aiding the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Hillary took full advantage of Flake’s words, putting him and other Republicrats in this campaign ad. McCain was MIA since in 2016, he was campaigning for a new 6-year-term at age 80.

AZ Republic shovels it for Flake. McCain is a good memory jogger. We also recommend So you think you know Jeff Flake? Think again. Read about his unsavory past ties as a registered foreign agent lobbying on behalf of a Iranian linked uranium mining operation.

AZ blazes educational trail with ESA vouchers

July 3, 2017

Empowerment Scholarship Accounts open educational choice to all students

The daily newspaper, which adamantly opposes parental choice in education, provided an editorial platform for Sen. Debbie Lesko to inform the public of the passage of her bill authorizing Empowerment Scholarship Accounts.

Does anyone smell a rat?

The newspaper titles Sen. Lesko’s  AZ I See It op-ed Lawmaker: Stop spreading fear about vouchers. But the machinations don’t stop there.  A video accompanies the online version of Sen. Lesko’s commentary. Straddling the back of an orange settee, reporter Joanna Allhands, looking like she’s about to take her vehicle to a do-it-yourself car wash, engages in a cheesy display to make the point that she and the newspaper she works for, oppose the accounts.

As the AZ Senate President Pro Tempore, Lesko didn’t just fall off the political turnip truck. She’s a savvy leader who has been an active member of the community and has served in the state legislature since 2009. She’s also a parent of three children and a grandparent, which gives her more than passing familiarity with public schools and their inability to serve every child effectively.

A Republican representing Legislative District 21, Lesko was the sponsor of Senate Bill 1431, legislation expanding Empowerment Scholarship Accounts, which gives all parents the ability to make educational choices in the best interests of their own children.

Under the provisions of Sen. Lesko’s legislation, signed into law by Gov. Doug Ducey, all students will be eligible for this educational opportunity. It was originally available only for students with special needs.

Republicrat Kate Brophy McGee shamefully joined with unified Democrats  — tied at the hip with the educrat unions, as disclosed by Center for Responsive Politics —  to vote against the measure. It passed, despite her efforts to undermine parental choice.

Center for Arizona Policy carries an excellent overview of the ESA program, including information regarding the unsuccessful lawsuits filed by the education establishment attempting to halt the opportunity for Arizona children to achieve academic success.


AZ Republic’s front page: Blatant trickery:on display

June 29, 2017

Employing an over-sized front page graphic and all caps headline, the Arizona Republic reports on a “FIGHT OVER FAMILY PLANNING FUNDS.” The report bemoans the fact that Gov. Doug Ducey and the state legislature have united in an effort to defund Planned Parenthood Arizona.  The Arizona group receives $4.5 million in taxpayer dollars as its portion of federal “family planning” funds. Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest provider of abortions.

Not a single PP facility is equipped with mammography equipment or staffed by radiologists to provide women with essential breast cancer screenings. Women are referred to radiological centers to receive those services, exactly as their family doctors or gynecologists would do. Despite ample evidence to the contrary, the newspaper bogusly refers to Planned Parenthood sites as “community clinics,” making them appear to be in league with family practice physicians where you take the kids for routine inoculations, ear infections and casts for broken bones. Dad doesn’t hop over to Planned Parenthood for relief from knee pain or prostate exams.

Planned Parenthood’s mission is not health care, but something far more odious.

Yet national Planned Parenthood receives approximately $500 million a year in taxpayer funding, according to this 2015 General Accountability Office report. The report covers the fiscal years 2010 through 2012, so it’s reasonable to expect the 2017 funding exceeds that amount.

These were the roots of Margaret Sanger, the notorious eugenics proponent who started Planned Parenthood, with facilities strategically placed in low income immigrant or black neighborhoods in the early 1900’s. Her mission was to eradicate those she referred to as “human weeds.”


Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio exhibits more integrity than foes

June 24, 2017

In anticipation of his upcoming trial, the failing Arizona Republic is thrusting a multi-pronged pitchfork in Joe Arpaio’s direction.  Dissipated columnist EJ Montini gloats in an on-line video in which he appears to be unwell. His counterpart, Laurie Roberts leaps onboard with her own spew of negativity. Political cartoonist Steve Benson, who devoted years to churning out contemptuous criticism towards Arpaio has now turned his focus to President Trump, another Republican to despise and attempt to bring down.

This single sentence sums up the newspaper’s bias: “Joe Arpaio — the man, not the lawman — is the defendant in a federal criminal trial scheduled to begin in Phoenix on Monday.”

Arpaio, who fittingly celebrated his 85th birthday which occurs on Flag Day, faces a criminal contempt trial on allegations that he violated a federal judge’s orders to stop enforcing federal immigration law. Joe Arpaio, the son of Italian immigrants, has obviously never been against immigration. Illegal hordes invading our country, using counterfeit or stolen ID to facilitate their lives here are not immigrants.

What you need to remember: Joe Arpaio, an Army veteran and career lawman who rose from a Washington DC police officer to worldwide assignments within the Drug Enforcement Administration, culminating with heading the Arizona DEA office prior to initially running for Sheriff in 1992 — was doing the job the citizens of Maricopa County repeatedly elected him to do.

Democrat Paul Penzone, the Soros supported leftist candidate, who succeeded Arpaio is working to eradicate any semblance of the last 24 years where Sheriff Arpaio was the popular chief law enforcement professional in Maricopa County. The liberal newspaper, which supports open borders and amnesty, led the charge against him. Shamefully the editorial policy is overseen by editor Phil Boas, who is Arpaio’s son-in-law. Boas claims he recuses himself from coverage of Arpaio.

George Soros, a muti-billionaire, is a socialist who ultimately dropped $2 million into Penzone’s campaign as he has been funding liberal candidates across the nation in an attempt to alter the U.S. Justice system. Politico carries the shocking exposé.
