McSally extends condolences to McCain’s on dog’s death

April 11, 2019

Sufficient contrition could score campaign assist in 2020

It’s not often the death of a dog rates news coverage, but John McCain’s dog, Burma, and the Arizona Republic are the exceptions.

Earlier this week, Cindy Hensley McCain announced the Chesapeake Bay retriever “died in a tragic accident at our beloved Hidden Valley,” presumably their Cornville, Arizona compound. The unexplained “tragic accident” makes it seem Cindy might have unintentionally backed over the dog or it chowed down on some of her meds.

Obviously unwilling to risk getting crosswise with the vengeful McCain‘s again, U.S. Sen. Martha McSally took time from her busy schedule to relay her condolences on the death of her predecessor’s dog.

According to a newspaper account, McSally said:

“I will tell you, I saw that their dog had passed away and was just heartbroken to see that, that Burma was no longer with them. I just shared with her that I was really feeling bad about the loss and I know how hard that hurts.”

The prospect of falling into Mega McCain’s humongous cavern of a disreputable mouth or ticking off her desperate-for-attention mother has the ability to turn McSally, a seasoned combat fighter pilot turned U.S. Senator —- who will have to run again in 2020 for a complete term —- into a groveler.

Candace Owens brilliantly assesses Democrat policies

April 10, 2019

You won’t see this on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, MSNBC….

Candace Owens commanded the attention (video) of the House Judiciary Committee meeting where she was an invited guest Tuesday. Speaking on the topic of white nationalism and hate crimes, Owens, a black conservative, accused Democrats on the panel of focusing on “fear-mongering, power and control” rather than on the issue of racism. As the director of communications for Turning Point USA  she’s honed her public speaking skills, making her appearance at the hearing spellbinding. Arizona is well represented with 17 chapters throughout the state.

Owens emphasized that the country needs to talk more about what she identified as ‘harassment of conservatives of color. ‘”We’re not talking enough about political hatred in this country.”

At age 29, Owens, an ardent supporter of President Trump, is a compelling public speaker. She has been working to persuade black Americans to leave the Democrat Party, which counts their votes as a given, doing nothing to earn their support.

“We need to condemn all types of hate speech,” she stated.

Owens reminded lawmakers about a “double standard” that she says allows criticism of black conservatives, Christians and Jews.

AZ’s U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs (CD-5), is a member of the House Judiciary Committee before which Candace Owens appeared. This is an example of his bold leadership as he recently spoke about another House member who has repeatedly accused Jewish Americans of holding dual loyalties, a malicious anti-Semitic slur that predates Adolf Hitler.


It’s April Fools’ Day: Don’t let Hiral Tipirneni fool you

April 1, 2019

Lying, losing, leftist returns to try another Congressional con

The Tax Foundation created Tax Freedom Day as a way of calculating how many days Americans need to work to pay for government services. 109 days into this year, we’ve earned enough to cover our share of the tab.

In Arizona, where our sales taxes are among the nation‘s highest, we don’t reach tax freedom day until next Tuesday, April 9. That fact no doubt strikes you as excessive. But a carpet-bagging congressional candidate doesn’t think so.

We share this important information because the Democrat retread candidate, who lost two previous congressional races last year (one was a special election after U.S. Rep. Trent Frank’s resignation) challenging Republican U.S. Rep. Debbie Lesko, is back again. Realizing that running in Arizona’s Congressional District 8 was a losing proposition, Hiral Tipirneni is now challenging U.S. Rep. David Schweikert, in CD 6, where she is not even a resident. This is not technically illegal, though it smacks of opportunism and raises the question of motivation.

Prior to being elected to Congress in 2010, Republican Schweikert was an elected state legislator and Maricopa County Treasurer. He currently serves on the powerful House Ways and Means Tax and Trade Subcommittees, and is known as an effective numbers cruncher. His Issues Page defines his priorities. Senator Mike Lee, chairman of the Joint Economic Committee (JEC), announced Congressman David Schweikert will lead House Republicans on JEC.

A typical big spending liberal who desires to expand Medicare to cover 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 workers are taxed enough.

When she ran in the West Valley’s CD 8, Tipirneni’s campaign ads depicted her wearing medical scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck, contrived to give the impression she was a working physician. Conveniently omitted was the fact that she hasn’t practiced medicine since 2007, when she was successfully sued for malpractice. No longer practicing medicine, the dedicated leftist made $millions promoting Obamacare. The patient she maltreated is no longer above ground to vote against Hiral Tipirneni, but if you live in District 6, you can. (Zoom in to see the boundaries.)


Illegal alien crisis reaches breaking point

March 29, 2019

Overburdened Border Patrol is releasing illegal aliens on to city streets in Arizona and Texas, a fact the Arizona Republic buries on page 11

The Trojan Horse symbolizes a saga in Greek mythology describing the strategy used by ancient Greeks to overtake the powerful city of Troy that had remained unconquerable during a decade long war. Finally the Greeks constructed a gigantic wooden horse in which they hid an elite fighting force. The horse, considered a victory trophy by the Trojans, was wheeled into the walled city as the Greeks appeared to retreat. According to legend, using the cover of darkness, the soldiers stowed inside the horse, crept out, opened the gates and let the rest of the army enter. The result was the destruction of Troy followed by a takeover by the invaders. The war ended, and so did Troy.

The United States is now in a similar position. There is no wooden horse, but there are determined invaders —- and we, like the Trojans, appear to be aiding and abetting our own demise.

John Binder, writing for Breitbart News, citing facts and figures from government sources, reports the United States is projected to add about 1.5 million illegal aliens to the American population by the end of the year, if current rates of Catch and Release border crossings and the 300,000 to 400,000 visa overstays remain consistent.

These numbers are in addition to the unverifiable tens of millions* of illegal aliens who are already fanned out across our country. This incalculable range represents the fact that we have lost control of how many invaders have breached our border. Their birth rates surpass native-born Americans.

Additionally, the astronomical numbers don’t factor in the estimated 500,000 illegal aliens who successfully cross into the U.S. undetected by Border Patrol agents. They are typically deported only after committing crimes in the U.S. —- initiating a cycle of repeated returns and deportations.  These are recent Border Patrol statistics.

The unskilled and uneducated Central American and Mexican hordes who have no respect for our sovereignty and are loath to assimilate, recreate the barrios they left behind after arriving in the USA.  Once here, they are able to access taxpayer-funded benefits as they fan out across our nation, all too often aided and abetted by unconscionable churches desperate to fill their emptying pews with grateful invaders.

President Donald Trump ran and was elected on his promise to build a border wall. Congressional Democrats have thwarted his efforts at every turn, denying the funding needed to complete construction. They tout technology that has been a costly failure since it was initially implemented. SRAZ posted,Virtual fence is a virtual flop,“ andVirtual fence “looks good” to Homeland Insecurity Chief Chertoff,” nearly a dozen years ago. The only thing that has changed is the invaders now boldly arrive in caravans, knowing that the leftist dominated U.S. House of Representatives refuses to advance funding President Trump has repeatedly requested. The visceral hatred they have for him trouncing Hillary Clinton in 2016 supersedes any rational thoughts of providing security to America’s citizens.

This Roy Beck video is not new, but remains as relevant as when it first introduced.

Kyrsten Sinema’s strange bedfellows

March 27, 2019

As a self-declared bi-sexual, it’s a given Kyrsten Sinema — Arizona’s most outrageously unlikely U.S. Senator — has had more than a few strange bedfellows, but chances are she outdid herself Tuesday. What’s more, she engaged in her reckless behavior in the senate chamber — In front of witnesses, no less. To compound matters, she forged ahead without so much as a blush.

Sinema joined with Republicans to vote against the extremist Democrat “Green New Deal,” a brainchild of New York Socialist U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, who has declared that Americans must radically alter our lifestyles, modes of transportation to net zero emissions, rebuild our homes and commercial buildings to comply with intrusive green standards to achieve her illusion of GND nirvana or America and the rest of the planet, will be doomed to a prehistoric restoration, sans dinosaurs, within a decade. The extreme proposed legislation also mandates free education, housing, food and economic security for all, without addressing funding.

According to this recent study co-authored by Douglas Holtz-Eakin, the former director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, implementation of the colossal “Green New Deal” could cost as much as $93 trillion, or approximately $600,000 per household. Watch his brief interview with Neil Cavuto.

Forty-three Democrats, including the party’s senate presidential candidates —- Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren —- voted “present” on the cloture vote on S.J. Res.8 avoiding having to sign their names to this far-left issue viewed as one the most radical, dangerous, and destructive policies to ever be considered in the chamber.

Sinema, politically astute when she sees a decided future benefit, bedded down with the Republicans.


Faux Snooze (Fox News) veers left

March 19, 2019

“Fair and Balanced” should be retitled “Fake and Biased”

In the wake of the announcement that Fox News has disgracefully removed popular Judge Jeanine Pirro for speaking the truth, (video) we read that the once conservative network is bringing former Democratic National Committee chairman, Donna Brazile on-board as a commentator.

Who could forget Donna? She was exposed for informing members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign of questions in advance of a debate and town hall during the 2016 presidential primary and was forced to relinquish her position as DNC chair.

Hiring this slippery sneak is quite a coup for Fox News.

Now Judge Jeanine has been suspended for rightly calling into question the patriotism of hijab wearing, rabid anti-Semite U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Somali-born newly elected Democrat representing Minnesota.

Viewers are boycotting the cable network. President Donald Trump, a longtime friend of Judge Pirro, urged the network to “bring back” her show.”

In 2013 Rush Limbaugh was insightfully ahead of the pack when he advised a caller to “stop watching” Fox News. The caller was venting his frustration over the deferential coverage accorded Barack Obama and the array of liberals on the “Fair and Balanced” network.

SRAZ had earlier exposed the liberal line-up of paid contributors and often bizarre skew inFox News: “Fair and Balanced” credibility tanksAmnesty is prevailing view, Fox silences dissent.”


The enemy within: Sen. RINOs join Dems to restrict Trump & Update

March 15, 2019

Republicrat senators, in a shameful display, voted with Democrats Thursday to block President Trump’s declaration of an emergency at the southern border.

The president declared the emergency after being blocked by congressional Democrats in his efforts to secure our southern border and halt the steady stream of illegal invaders, crime, drugs and human trafficking. Many traveling with children fraudulently claim to be family units to enhance their changes of being granted asylum.

Businessman Donald Trump —- based on his stated promise to build a border wall, rose like cream to the top of his sixteen bottlenecked opponents in 2016. Most of them have since vanished from the political consciousness. He then demolished problem-plagued Hillary Clinton in the General Election.

Now, instead of coalescing behind the man who resuscitated the Republican Party, spineless Republicans are expressing concern that by invoking the National Emergencies Act, the President is exceeding his authority. This is preposterous on it’s face.  

Although the left is going ballistic over President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to secure our southern border in response to congress’ failure to act, the ability to do so is not a new construct emanating from the Trump White House.

The National Emergencies Act was enacted by Congress in 1976, when it was signed into law by President Gerald Ford. It has no specific definition of what is considered an emergency, but has historically been invoked during unusual threats to the nation. There have been 58 national emergencies declared since the act‘s inception. Thirty-one of them remain in effect today.

In 1979, Pres. Jimmy Carter initially put the act to use to declare a national emergency freezing all Iranian government assets in the U.S. in response to the Iran hostage crisis. His national emergency is still in place and has been renewed annually by successive presidents, as required by law.

Pres. George W. Bush declared national emergency acts following the September 11, 2001 attacks. In all, he declared 13. As president, Barack Obama declared national emergencies on 12 foreign relations issues that have also been renewed.

Yet in the House last month, a dirty dozen plus one Republicrats voted in unison with the united Dems 245-182 to pass a resolution rejecting President Trump’s declaration. Thursday’s 59-41 roll call vote on H.J. Res. 46 in the Senate will send it to Trump’s desk. President Trump has indicated he will veto it.

Contemptible Senate Republicans who appallingly voted with Democrats are Lamar Alexander (TN), Roy Blunt (MO), Susan Collins (ME), Mike Lee (UT), Jerry Moran (KS), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Rand Paul (KY), Rob Portman (OH), Mitt Romney (UT), Marco Rubio (FL), Pat Toomey (PA), and Roger Wicker (MS). Arizona Sen. Martha McSally supported the president.

Regardless of what Republicrats and Democrats assert, President Trump absolutely has the authority to declare a national emergency on the border. He has that authority because Congress explicitly gave the power to the executive branch in 1976.

President Trump has just signed the first veto of his presidency:
