Quotes: Real and concocted as SCOTUS vacancy looms

September 22, 2020

The differences between left-wing Democrats and conservative Republicans are numerous and stark

At a recent rally President Trump spoke decisively, energizing his supporters, about what’s at stake regarding the latest Supreme Court vacancy:

“Article 2 of our Constitution says the president shall nominate justices of the Supreme Court,” he said. “I don’t think it can be any more clear.”

The crowd repeatedly cheered, “Fill that seat!”

 “That’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to fill the seat,” he responded to applause and more cheers.

Since her death last week, Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s adoring minions have not only elevated the leftist jurist to sainthood, they have even accessed her dying words allegedly dictated to and transcribed by her lawyer granddaughter Clara Spera. Although Ginsburg had children, grandchildren and a great-grandchild, her final words were not expressing her love for them, but rather her hatred of President Donald Trump and her desire to constrain him.

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

Really? That’s quite a political branch to climb out on with her final breaths, even more so in light of her 2016 comments to The New York Times regarding filling a Supreme Court vacancy, when Ginsburg said of presidents, “That’s their job. There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being the president in his last year.” She was, of course, referring to Barack Obama.

Enraged Dem mobs, hoping to constrain President Trump, are targeting the homes of  GOP lawmakers and engaging in grand scale violence. Their congressional counterparts are threatening retaliatory actions, including expanding the court and packing it with Democrats.

Undeterred by their tantrums, President Trump met Monday with Amy Coney Barrett, a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, who is said to be among the top of his Supreme Court shortlist. Barrett, 48, and the mother of 7, is profiled on the SCOTUS blog by Amy Howe.

Expect Trump to nominate a replacement for Ginsburg on Saturday, after memorial services are held.

Leftist teacher issues death threats to AZ US Rep. Paul Gosar

September 8, 2020

The online Arizona Daily Independent newspaper does a masterful job of reporting what you won’t see in the radically left wing Arizona Republic

HeadlinedRepublican Congressman Receives Death Threat From Retired Teacher,” it includes the menacing, profanity-laced message left on Congressman Paul Gosar’s voice mail by retired teacher and Democrat political activist, Margaret Kathleen Spangenberg. The thought of this violent hatemonger interacting with young children should make every parent’s blood run cold. It’s a given she’s not an anomaly.

Spangenberg’s Facebook page shown in a screenshot on ADI‘s site, identifies her as a Mark Kelly supporter and Red for Ed protester — teachers who abandoned approximately 844,000 Arizona students for nearly two weeks in 2018, demanding and receiving a 20% pay increase for their part-time jobs from capitulating Gov. Doug Ducey. Like rats following the Pied Piper, they obediently followed self-acknowledged Socialist Noah Karvelis, a 24-year-old uncredentialed hip hop music teacher as they made demands.

Acquaint yourself with the teachers unions and $millions they donate to Democrat candidates. Its all substantiated on the Center for Responsive Politics web site, which states Democrats receive at least 94 percent of the funds they contributed to candidates and parties.

Congressman Gosar, a retired dentist, is doing a phenomenal job on behalf of the people of his 4th Congressional District as well as the entire state of Arizona. Read his impressive bio which includes his top-notch current and career ratings.

Devious Hiral Tiperneni: Carpetbagger extraordinaire

August 7, 2020

Up to her old tricks and then some: Lying, losing, leftist returns to try another Congressional con

The radically leftwing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic, has lost subscribers at a higher rate than other Gannett owned newspapers nationwide. In a desperate effort to stay alive, Editor Greg Burton pledged to abandon its reliably Democrat-laden pre-election endorsement pages. His noble-sounding vow was a classic stunt, as the Hillary-endorsing newspaper continually fills its shrinking pages with negative articles and columnist’s spew exclusively aimed at Republicans.

Today’s edition is a stellar example. In a Page One Aug. 7th post-election report subtitled, “US House incumbents on track to defeat primary challengers,” the bolder headline blasts: Tipirneni wins Dems’ race to face Schweikert.

A typical big spending liberal who desires to expand Medicare coverage to all, Tipirneni’s technique for further bloating government programs is raising the amount of withholding taxes. If you’re conversant in Tipirneniese, you’ll understand that the slippery Democrat doesn’t think struggling workers are taxed enough.

U.S. Rep. David Schweikert, serving his fifth congressional term, has a impressive biography of public service. Not mentioned in the coverage lavished on far leftist Democrat Hiral Tipirneni is her carpetbagging out of her district to challenge Schweikert across the wide valley expanse. In 2018 she ran for congress hoping to represent the 8th Congressional District, losing to Republican Debbie Lesko, who expertly represents her constituents and makes the rest of us proud.

Between January 2011 and July 2018, Schweikert’s former chief of staff, Oliver Schwab, made impermissible expenditures according to the House Ethics Committee which fined the congressman. Schwab, who resigned in July 2018, used official funds from the Members’ Representational Allowance (MRA), intended for office expenses. The ethics investigative subcommittee, which looked into Schweikert, ultimately decided to recommend a lesser sanction than censure and closed the matter.

Now Glendale resident Tipirneni, who lives in an exclusive gated community on the mountain preserve, has opportunistically decided to run out of the Scottsdale/Fountain Hills based 6th Congressional District, hoping no one will notice her deceit as she mistakenly views the respected conservative congressman as vulnerable.

It’s not the first time Tipirneni has attempted to pull the wool over voter’s eyes. During her previous campaigns — this is her third — her political ads depicted her wearing medical scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck at a patient‘s bedside. She hasn’t practiced medicine since losing a medical malpractice lawsuit in 2007. During the Obama administration, the dedicated leftist made $millions promoting Obamacare.

The patient Tipirneni maltreated is no longer above ground to vote against Hiral Tipirneni, but if you live in District 6, you can on November 3, 2020.

Both the deceptive non-practicing doctor and the failing local newspaper long to present lies as fact and truth as fabrication. Republicans are on to them.

U.S. Rep. Gohmert’s resolution to ban Democrat Party

July 26, 2020

Republican brilliance shines bright

The old adage, “Turnabout is fair play,” applies, as Texas conservative Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert (impressive bio) introduced this astute resolution July 23, 2020. The resolution is quick reading and will brighten your day. 

Gohmert’s action came a day after passage of a bill supported by hard-left Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi requiring all items that name any political party or organization that supported slavery be removed from the House of Representatives wing of the U.S. Capitol or connected House office buildings.

Rep. Gohmert, a former judge, issued this statement explaining the resolution, calling on Congress to ban any political party or organization that has held a public position supportive of slavery:

“As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred. Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan. As the country watches violent leftists burn our cities, tear down our statues and call upon every school, military base and city street to be renamed, it is important to note that past atrocities these radicals claim to be so violently offensive were largely committed by members in good standing of the Democratic Party. Whether it be supporting the most vile forms of racism or actively working against Civil Rights legislation, Democrats in this country perpetuated these abhorrent forms of discrimination and violence practically since their party’s inception. To avoid triggering innocent bystanders by the racist past of the Democratic Party, I would suggest they change their name. That is the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur.”

Among the four co-sponsors is conservative Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs, (R-CD-5).

AZ Dem U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick wants you to fund leftist news

July 19, 2020

Newsosaur failing model exemplified by deceit passing as fact

As news becomes more unreliable with an increasingly resolute leftward skew, Arizona Democrat U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (CD-2) is co-sponsoring the Local Journalism Sustainability Act, a bill “that helps preserve community journalistic endeavors throughout the United States.”

Stating “Local Journalism is a bedrock pillar of [our] communities,” Kirkpatrick frets, “unfortunately, journalistic endeavors throughout the country are facing major economic struggles that put the future of many publications in serious jeopardy. These struggles existed before COVID, but the pandemic has only made them more severe. We need to make sure these publications can sustain themselves through this crisis and beyond, and I believe the credits in this bill make significant progress in providing a pathway to that sustainability.”

The “credits” she extols are tax credits, meaning we pay for extending the life of failing newspapers specializing in leftward biased reporting, with a bone thrown in for subscribers. The tax breaks would last five years during which time the self-deluders hope the industry might recover.

The Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic has been hemorrhaging subscriptions ever since that foolish move in a state that gave all 11 of its electoral votes to Donald Trump. In the wake of that ill-fated decision, it vowed to drop its pre-election endorsements. That pledge was a devious maneuver. Instead of endorsement pages it now runs daily biased news reports. columns and headlines maligning Republicans in general and President Trump in particular.

Slippery Kirkpatrick moved nearly 300 miles south of her Flagstaff home, to represent Tucson-based CD-2, where she carpetbagged following her defeat in CD-1 after serving a single-term and being ousted in 2010. This is the type of representation Ann Kirkpatrick gave her constituents (video) during her first term.

Since then, after a serious fall for which she was hospitalized, she acknowledged being treated for alcoholism and took a leave of absence from her congressional office.

Kirkpatrick obviously regards all of us as being a bit tipsy if she thinks this bill (H.R. 7640) to maintain an industry that has lost all credibility is deserving of being artificially sustained. Those she refers to as “journalists” relentlessly insult the intelligence of a dwindling reader base while delivering anti-Trump spew to a nation that overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump over scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton — who newspapers reliably endorsed.

Meanwhile, the failing Arizona Republic is now pathetically begging for donations. No joke.

Sen. Martha McSally’s slippery rivals aid her campaign

July 8, 2020

Extremist Democrat Mark Kelly makes $millions on business deals colluding with China

Republican Sen. Martha McSally is being challenged by hard-left Democrat Mark Kelly, a George Soros backed gun control hypocrite who never mentions his political action committees that exist solely to constrain Second Amendment rights.

Demand Daniel, a Primary Election AZ U.S. Senate candidate, calling himself a “very shrewd” business owner, has acknowledged to the local newspaper that he has received between $150,000 and $350,000, in government Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funds intended to assist businesses forced to close due the COVID-19 pandemic.

Daniel, ill-equipped for the Senate, (shocking video) is unable to grasp that his last name McCarthy will be on the ballot, not the word “Demand,” that tops his campaign signs. He owns a makeup eraser company that produces the product in China. Although Demand Daniel has previously denied taking government loans, Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) reporting records for Arizona also show two of his businesses have received Small Business Administration awards of more than $1.5 million.

Over 11,000 Arizona businesses received more than $7 billion in financial aid intended to save over 600,000 American jobs. Since McCarthy’s product is made in China, a reasonable assumption could be made that his company is not entitled to such taxpayer-funded largess.

McCarthy calls his accessing the money “very shrewd.”  The rest of us would be more inclined to refer to his actions as “reprehensible.”

Democrat Mark Kelly, who omits his party affiliation in his ubiquitous campaign ads, has also been exposed as having longstanding business ties to China.

RealClearPolitics and Breitbart News each zoned in on the reprehensible treachery of AZ Senate Democrat candidate Mark Kelly. He’s better known for what he cagily omits than what he says. His campaign ads never use the word “Democrat” nor do they mention his anti-Second Amendment PACs or his close association with Socialist multi-billionaire/financier George Soros, a one-worlder who disdains national borders.

 Kelly, along with wife, former U.S. Rep. Giffords, operates two major gun control groups,* Giffords PAC which between its hybrid PAC and 501(c)(4) nonprofit Giffords, spent nearly $7 million to aid Democrat congressional candidates in 2018. Watch for those restrictive efforts to intensify.

Of paramount importance is the duplicitous Mark Kelly’s close ties to Chinese tech giant Tencent, which he tenaciously conceals. The company funneled $millions into a commercial space exploration company he co-founded.

Federal records show that World View Enterprises, Inc., a Tucson-based company that uses balloons to launch lower-altitude “stratollites,” had ties to Democrat candidate Mark Kelly. The retired NASA astronaut also co-founded that company and then worked as a strategic adviser, until he left in 2019 to launch his campaign.

Real Clear Politics reports in the fall of 2014, the CEO of Kelly’s World View Enterprises, announced during a visit to Beijing that Tencent had invested an undisclosed sum of money in the Tucson-based space travel venture. In April 2016, as part of a subsequent, $15 million investment round, World View announced that it had received more funds from Tencent, along with three other venture capital firms.

Tencent was already under intense U.S. scrutiny before the COVID-19 world crisis. The Wall Street Journal reports on Tencent’s nefarious surveillance assisting authorities in Beijing in hunting down its own citizens, silencing dissent and creating surveillance cities

Now it’s radioactive. A recent University of Toronto study found that WeChat has been censoring keywords relating to the COVID-19 outbreak since at least Jan. 1. Several prominent lawmakers in recent weeks have deemed Tencent an arm of the Chinese Communist Party and a threat to U.S. national security. Republican Sens. Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley in late April introduced a bill aimed at preventing Chinese espionage by prohibiting U.S. federal employees from conducting official business over platforms run by Tencent, Huawei, ZTE and other Chinese companies and barring U.S. tax dollars from being used for any international contracts with those firms.

These are vital issues which radical leftist Mark Kelly will never address. The failing Arizona Republic, hoping for two U.S. Senate Democrats from Arizona, before it gasps its last breaths can be counted on to obscure the facts, if it even touches on them at all.

Sen. Martha McSally deserves to be retained in the U.S. Senate.

McCain syndicate gunning for Trump, McSally, other GOP incumbents

July 6, 2020

Leftist Mcthugs aim to turn Arizona blue and give U.S. Senate a Dem majority

Nearly two years after his death the long arm of vengeful McCain, grotesquely held aloft by his longtime operatives, extends out of the grave to fulfill grudges and create havoc within the Republican Party. Their latest mission to upend the reelection of President Donald Trump.

There is no bottom-dragging that is too low for these malevolent anti-Trumpers. They view their despicable efforts to purge the president, and give the boot to those they contemptibly regard as expendable Republican senators for what they view as a greater good. They learned well from their deceitful icon McCain who spent his career colluding with Democrats and sticking his thumb in the eye of the political party he used for his own selfish purposes.

McCain’s former campaign manager Steve Schmidt, and senior adviser and longtime strategist John Weaver are integral to the Lincoln Project, which was co- founded by George Conway, a D.C. based lawyer married to White House legal counsel Kellyanne Conway. In recent weeks, the nefarious group has released a series of ads attacking Pres. Trump and Senate Republicans. The Lincoln Project’s stated mission is to “Defeat President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box.”

Steve Schmidt is quoted as saying, “The analogy would be in the same way that fire purifies the forest, it needs to be burned to the ground and fundamentally repudiated. Every one of them should be voted out of office, with the exception of Mitt Romney.”

These Trump-hating fools and their high dollar donor* cohorts (15 pages of them at last count) are prepared to flip the senate with expensive ad buys, to teach conservatives a lesson letting them know that defeating Trump alone is insufficient. Hardliner anti-Trumpers argue that GOP senators must pay a steep price for their loyalty to Trump, even if it hands Democrats complete control of the federal government.

“They are the only … human beings who had the authority and the ability to keep this president in check constitutionally and politically, and every one of them made a conscious decision to not do so,” said Jennifer Horn, a former New Hampshire GOP chairwoman who now advises the Lincoln Project. “The only way to make sure that Trumpism doesn’t continue to rule the Republican Party for years to come is to make sure that we defeat not only the president, but those people who have enabled him.”

Republicans currently hold a slim 53-47 majority in the Senate, the body that confirms judicial nominees to the federal bench and the U.S. Supreme Court. 

Trump haters are so focused on retaliation that they are willing to set the nation on its ear past the foreseeable future by tipping the senate and the courts leftward after President Trump’s unparalleled successes.

Two GOP U.S. Senators cave to anarchists

July 2, 2020

As rioting and violent mobs, abysmally ignorant of history, assault police officers, pillage and topple historic monuments — U.S. Presidents, Union Army Generals and Christopher Columbus among them — two U.S. Senators are caving to the agents of chaos.

Republican Sens. Ron Johnson (WI) and James Lankford (OK) now agree with the mob that intrepid Italian explorer Christopher Columbus is no longer worthy of a holiday commemorating his ships’ arrival in the Americas in 1492. When Columbus set off across the Atlantic, the prevailing thought was that the world was flat.

President Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, designated Columbus Day a national holiday in 1934. The first Columbus Day celebration took place in 1792, when the Columbian Order in New York City held a ceremony on the voyage’s 300th anniversary.

The senate duo of Johnson and Lankford has added an amendment eliminating the Columbus Day celebration to a bill declaring Juneteenth, memorializing the end of slavery, a new federal holiday. 

Characterizing the purging of the Columbus Day holiday as fiscally responsible, by not having two paid holidays, is less than truthful. This is all about votes as Johnson and Lankford look ahead to their next elections. They foolishly fail to comprehend that the mob is not their constituency.

Dems fail in D.C. statehood power grab

June 27, 2020

It was bound to happen. On the rising tide of racial divide following the martyrdom of George Floyd, a career criminal who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer responding to a call of Floyd attempting to pay for merchandise with a counterfeit twenty dollar bill. The death was unnecessary and the former officer is in jail, charged with second-degree felony murder. Three other officers who witnessed the knee to Floyd’s neck are unreasonably facing third-degree murder charges. One was newly hired.

Floyd had been incarcerated multiple times on robbery and narcotics sale convictions. His autopsy report revealed he tested positive for COVID-19 and had numerous drugs including cocaine, fentanyl, cannabis, morphine and oxycotin in his system. Though far from a sterling character, his death was the impetus for riots, arson and looting across the country. It has expanded into an excuse for calls to defund police departments nationwide and destroy historic monuments in what amounts to a cultural revolution by leftists lacking in knowledge of American history as they elevate Floyd to hero status.

The most recent affront is being perpetrated by congressional Democrats who are now pushing for statehood for Washington, D.C. There is a method to their madness. If such a vote were to pass the senate, we would have a minority majority state, where black voters, mostly democrats would alter the dynamics of the U.S. House and Senate.

In a patently partisan 232-180 vote, the U.S. House on Friday approved legislation granting statehood to Washington, D.C. A single Democrat, Collin Peterson (MN) voted against H.R. 51. There is no chance of passage through the Republican controlled Senate, which adheres to the fact that such a move is unconstitutional, since the nation’s founders established the city as a neutral zone outside the influence of state politics for co-equal sovereign states to come together to transact the nation’s business.

The bill violates the 23rd Amendment, which grants D.C. residents the right to vote in presidential elections. That is of no consequence to the Democrat magicians. Their presto-chango legislation included a swift vote to repeal the 23rd Amendment.

AZ Republic elevates US Rep. Andy Biggs to US Senate

May 27, 2020

Those inattentive folks at the seriously failing Arizona Republic newspaper, have problems that far surpass the Hillary-endorsing newspaper’s out-of-step leftist bent. As a case in point, Tuesday‘s hard-copy edition ran an opinion piece that was an attention grabber.

Topping a rational “Your Turn” column was this headline, “The US can’t afford to stay closed.” The co-authors are identified under their photos as, “Sens. Rand Paul and Andy Biggs.”

Make no mistake. Conservative Andy Biggs is definitely someone we’d be happy to see in the U.S. Senate. However, the former Arizona State Senate president is currently serving his second term representing Arizona’s Congressional District 5 residents in the U.S. House of Representatives. That fact obviously missed the attention of the careless hacks still employed at the newspaper in the wake of mass layoffs, pay cuts and furloughs.

Blithely undisturbed by the daily’s daily flubs, exemplified by this monumental list of Corrections and Clarifications, is the inanely grinning executive editor Greg Burton — except when comparing his remaining staff tocrackpots and criminals.” He puts on a happy face to thank the dwindling number of readers overpaying for being fed leftist slop as he prizes newsroom diversity above factual reporting while promising more of the same to subscribers.

What an inducement!
