Martha McSally suddenly disdains “creepy old men”

June 21, 2019

…gave McCain a pass

Although former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore strongly denied allegations of inappropriate conduct with young women over 40 years earlier, his 2017 U.S. Senate aspirations crashed and burned.

That was the point. Accusations are all it takes in the wake of the #MeToo era.

Nine women suddenly emerged after Moore, the Republican nominee in the special election was making a strong showing. Moore had repeatedly been elected to Alabama’s high court without any attempt to smear his reputation, but that was a statewide judicial office. The U.S. Senate race had far-reaching consequences, with the potential to upset the balance of power in D.C., making it worthy of pulling out all stops to curtail his campaign.

The oddity came as calls for Moore to suspend his race was led by Democrats and their establishment Republicrat cohorts, in a bizarre display of bipartisan vigor. Imagine Democrats going after one of their own, and recruiting GOP colleagues’ assistance even if they found evidence he was a modern day Jack the Ripper?

AZ Sen. Martha McSally, a nominal Republican, is so agitated by Judge Moore’s recent U.S. Senate campaign she is quoted as saying,

“Give me a break. This place (DC) has enough creepy old men.”

Those were words she never uttered when the Arizona delegation included the foul-mouthed and crude John McCain, who used vulgar language to disparage his own wife and the mother of his children in front of staffers.

Chamber of Comworse: Not a benign business supporting entity

June 4, 2019

Amid speculation that former House Speaker Paul Ryan will be tapped to lead the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, it’s worth remembering the longstanding association between the open borders group’s members and like-thinking Ryan.

In 2015, prior to becoming Speaker, but looking to advance the possibility, Ryan appointed the Chamber of Commerce’s lobbyist David Hoppe as his own chief of staff. Hoppe, like a serial sweetheart, got passed around. He previously worked for Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl and former senate minority leader, Trent Lott. Hoppe’s corporate clients have had significant business before congress.

The Last Refuge’s post, ”And Yet Again – U.S. Chamber of Commerce Announces Goal To Destroy Nationalists and Conservative Politicians…” provides the unsavory back story, which has likely only worsened since it was written. The post begins with these words:

”We spend a lot of time following Tom Donohue and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce simply because if you trace any tentacle of globalist advancement from DC back to its origin you’ll find Donohue and the CofC at the nucleus.”

It was no secret that the Chamber of Commerce declared war on conservatives years ago. As Roll Call noted at the time, the chamber’s “top targets in 2016 will be right-wing, tea party candidates” and its ultimate goal is to reportedly win back “the soul of the Republican Party” for the GOP establishment by helping elect more moderate candidates “in contested primaries to strengthen their hand during policy debates on the Hill.” That year, the CofC promised to wage a $100 million dollar campaign against conservatives.

Locally Arizona has had disgraceful tool Glenn Hamer leading the Chamber. Read about him inGlenn Hamer: Heretic betrays GOP again.” Before taking up arms against the Republican Party, he was actually in its employ, as executive director, no less, where he negotiated for his new post while still being paid by the AZ GOP. Immediately after making the move, he endorsed far left Democrat Janet Napolitano over the Republican candidate for governor.  And what a surprise….Hamer previously honed his duplicitous skills toiling as a legislative assistant to Jon Kyl. Open borders RINO deceit forms a full circle.

American Thinker’s May 14, 2019 report, titled,MAGA vs. the U.S. Chamber of Commercedetails how the Chamber of Commerce and its president Thomas Donohue launched a battle against Donald Trump and his ‘America First’ platform very early on. For 18 months during the run-up to the 2016 election, the Chamber spared no effort to demonize Trump while carrying water for the Hillary Clinton campaign. The Chamber’s client base — opposing Donald Trump for his pro-America stance on illegal immigration, trade, and tariffs — have spent $100’s of millions to fight his agenda.

Paul Ryan currently sits on the board of Murdock’s new Fox Corp., a reconfigured stand-alone, publicly traded company, spun off as part of a $71.3 billion deal, controlled by Rupert Mudock’s liberal sons. Ryan, who as House Speaker double-talked on funding the border wall, would fit the CofC’s open border agenda like a kid glove.


AZ border hawks McSally, Schweikert now equivocators

June 3, 2019

Charade exposed as pre-election gambit

Almost a year ago to the day, we were treated to this political ad (shown below) featuring U.S. Reps. Martha McSally and David Schweikert — before McSally was appointed to the Senate following her stunning loss to radical leftist Kyrsten Sinema.  McSally and Schweikert were resolute border security supporters — when it benefited them.

Now they each appear to be throwing in with the anti-Trump Dems. McSally has morphed into opposing the president’s calls for tariffs on Mexican imports which will be implemented beginning June 10 contingent on Mexico’s halting its aid to massive hordes of Central American illegals invading the USA.  The incrementally increasing tariffs, preceded by a warning, will only be imposed if Mexico chooses to continue facilitating the invasion. Meandering McSally views tariffs as too harsh, as we noted in our weekend post,Memo to McSally: Thrashing Trump is key to failure.”

And Congressman Schweikert? He’s now singing an off-key, one note tune. Appearing on Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast,” Schweikert railed against President Trump’s tariff warning to Mexico and criticized the logic of “taxing” Americans to punish Mexico.

Schweikert said the tariff threat “doesn’t help” the prospect of passing the USMCA (United States-Mexico-Canada-Agreement) “because it just creates more noise.” The USMC is the new NAFTA.

He repeated that while Mexico needs to secure its border, he doesn’t support “taxing” Americans. Schweikert, previously known as a numbers cruncher, misses the point that Americans are not taxed if they are not purchasing items from Mexico — which has enabled the illegal invasion, allowing hundreds of thousands of impoverished and uneducated Central Americans unimpeded passage to our border. As they caravan through Mexico, they purchase food and other necessities, aiding Mexico’s economy as they come to sap ours.

Schweikert concluded with a craven mixed message that if the threat is designed to get Mexico to take its border security responsibilities seriously, it’s a “powerful message,” but if it’s taxing Americans to punish Mexico, “I’m not sure that line of logic completely works.”

Mexican Economic Minister Graciela Marquez announced on Sunday she will meet with U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in Washington today. Mexico understands President Trump’s logic better than U.S. Rep. David Schweikert does.

For a memory refresher, this was McSally and Schweikert in campaign mode.


Pres. Trump’s legal shakedown from Dem DC judge

May 21, 2019

Obama appointed Judge upholds Dem subpoena for president’s tax records

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta issued this 41-page order in favor of the U.S. House of Representatives Ways and Means Oversight sub-committee* seeking President Donald Trump’s personal and business tax records from his accounting firm, Mazars USA LLP.

The flamboyant opinion filled with inflammatory quotes, opens with an 1860 statement of protest from President James Buchanan which Mehta parallels to President Trump, writing, “Some 160 years later, President Donald J. Trump has taken up the fight of his predecessor.” Mehta gives cover to the partisan committee writing, it “has shown that it is not engaged in a pure fishing expedition for the President’s financial records,” disingenuously adding that “the documents might assist Congress in passing laws and performing other core functions.”

“Might”? In Mehta’s convoluted, partisan thinking, that meets a sufficient legal standard.

Judge Mehta also denied a request to stay his decision pending an appeal. Additionally, Mehta provocatively asserted that Congress can investigate President Trump without beginning formal impeachment proceedings.

These are the Judges on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia:

District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan (appointed by Bill Clinton: 1994)

District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly (Bill Clinton: 1997)

District Judge James E. Boasberg (Barack Obama: 2011)

District Judge Amy Berman Jackson (Barack Obama: 2011)

District Judge Rudolph Contreras (Barack Obama: 2012)

District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson (Barack Obama: 2013)

District Judge Christopher R. Cooper (Barack Obama: 2014)

District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan (Barack Obama: 2014)

District Judge Randolph D. Moss (Barack Obama: 2014)

District Judge Amit P. Mehta (Barack Obama: 2014)

District Judge Timothy J. Kelly (Donald Trump: 2017)

District Judge Trevor N. McFadden (Donald Trump: 2017)

District Judge Dabney L. Friedrich (Donald Trump: 2017)

Worshipping at the altar of deity McCain

May 17, 2019

After three funerals that spanned the country, most rational observers regarded John McCain as dead and buried.

That thinking turned out to be delusional. Republicrat John McCain, who relentlessly promoted amnesty for illegal aliens, has in fact, been elevated to deity status. His vengefulness, foul mouth, deceit and abysmal ignorance, have been pushed to the back burner as history concerning this marginal man, has been rewritten.

Sounder minds stalled a proposal to rename the Russell Senate Office Building after McCain. It was originally called the “Old Senate Building” and renamed for Democrat Georgia Sen. Richard Russell in 1972.

Now two other Democrats, part of an established Arizona political family, will likely have their names removed from the Udall Foundation’s Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution, named in their honor. Founded in 1992, it was a tribute to longtime Arizona Congressman and environmentalist Morris Udall and his brother Stewart Udall, who was Secretary of the Interior. The Udall family is rooted in the American West. Its role in politics spans over 100 years and four generations. Udall politicians have been elected from four different states: Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Oregon

Arizona Senators Kyrsten Sinema (D) and Martha McSally (R) are co-spearheading the effort to dump the Udall name. They are joined by CD 9 U.S. Rep. Greg Stanton (D).

Terminal 3 at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, in the midst of a nearly $600 million renovation, has been renamed to honor the man who crashed three jets — due to his arrogance and lack of judgment.

Those who have actually paid attention will remember John McCain as the man who was so enraged at twice losing the presidency that he publicly declared that neither he nor his family would vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump.

It should not be forgotten that was the envious McCain who personally hand-carried the bogus “dossier” to then-FBI Director James Comey, the sole intent of which was to take down President Trump. Democrat Party-financed operative Christopher Steele, a former British spy, fabricated the now discredited, 35-page, lewd dossier for the Democrats and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. When revealed as the messenger, McCain defended his actions using profanity and adding, “I did what duty demands I do.”

McCain referred to his pal, Hillary, as arock starhe could support in 2016.

Connecting the glut of McAwful dots requires more time than most of us are willing to devote to such reprehensible pursuits.

Meanwhile beer heiress Cindy Hensley McCain, who is not above lying about human trafficking, is busying herself by hiring a Hollywood agent to promote her for global speaking tours.

“As I focus on the next phase of my humanitarian endeavors, I’m thrilled to work with UTA to leverage my charitable passions to carry on my husband’s legacy by reaching new audiences and continuing to improve the lives of others,” solemnly intones Cindy.


Calif. Leftist billionaire Steyer targets AZ Republicans

May 14, 2019

First, a bit of background. During the 2016 election cycle Arizona saw the entrance of out-of-state money as Socialist multi-billionaire George Soros interjected himself into numerous campaigns. He targeted and spent millions in an effort to unseat Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and County Attorney Bill Montgomery, both Republicans. Arpaio, who was elected to an unprecedented six 4-year terms lost to Soros-backed leftist Paul Penzone, who was the recipient of $3.2 million. Montgomery retained his seat despite being in the crosshairs of a Soros-funded PAC which spent over $1 million.

This seemingly inexhaustible spending has been Soros’ modus operandi throughout the United States as he has worked to liberalize criminal statutes and elect those who would do his bidding.

Shortly after Penzone, a onetime Phoenix police officer, previously noted for roughing up his former wife, was sworn in as sheriff, he warmly referred to illegal invaders who breach our southern border by the hundreds of thousands, as “guests.”

Globalist Soros is an ardent opponent of sovereign nations and national borders.

Unlike Hungarian-born Soros, Tom Steyer is a homegrown radical billionaire, but the two are on similar missions: Replacing Republican office holders with far-left Democrats. Steyer’s group spent more than $3 million to oust Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich and three GOP state senators, batting zero. Ditto with the Democrats Steyer funded for the Arizona Corporation Commission. He also failed in 2018, while spending close to $100,000 trying to unseat AZ Gov. Doug Ducey. That was an intriguing effort, since John McCain was a longtime recipient of Soros’ wealth, and McCain recruited his friend Ducey to run — first for state treasurer and then for governor. Ducey’s first job when he arrived in Arizona to attend ASU was working for beer heiress Cindy Hensley McCain at Hensley & Co., the Anheuser-Busch beer wholesaler and distributor.

Steyer, who is considering a 2020 presidential run, is targeting two of President Trump’s congressional loyalists and leaders of the House Freedom Caucus: GOP Reps. Jim Jordan (OH) and Mark Meadows (NC). The ad money is supplied by Steyer’s “Need to Impeach PAC.This ad, (video) invokes an image of John McCain as displaying “courage” for his vile treatment of Trump.

Tom Steyer has many far-left irons in the fire. He is also insinuating himself into the battle opposing the Arizona Public Service rate increase, to curry favor with ratepayers, who have no choice in the utility from which they purchase power. The question to ask is why is this leftist Californian interested in Arizona utility rates, and how does he benefit? 

Both Steyer and Soros are frequently referred to as “philanthropists.” Giving vast sums to aid extremist Democrats and Republicrats is obviously the height of benevolence.


Pres. Trump funds border wall despite Dems

May 11, 2019

U.S. national security given preference by Pres. Trump

After being repeatedly thwarted by congressional Democrats in his requests for funding to secure our national border, President Donald Trump has resorted to an end run to halt the relentless surges of hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens breaching our border. Arriving in caravans, invaders from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras have been aided by Mexico, granting them unprecedented access to reach our border.

The Pentagon has announced it is reallocating $1.5 billion to help pay for construction of 80 miles of wall at the U.S.-Mexican border.

The money is made available from savings in numerous defense programs, including those earmarked for Afghanistan’s army and other foreign security forces. In March $1 billion was transferred from Army personnel budget accounts to support wall construction.

The combined total of $2.5 billion is in response to President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border. The President  has vetoed Democrats attempts to reverse the emergency declaration.

An enraged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) who has a secured San Francisco mansion in the district from which she runs, but spends much of her time at her secluded and protected Napa Valley estate and vineyard was not embarrassed to  issue a statement.  It said in part, “The President’s sham emergency declaration and unlawful transfers of funds have undermined our democracy, contravening the vote of the bipartisan Congress, the will of the American people and the letter of the Constitution.”

Democrats are known for hypocrisy. This reveal shows their bonding to Second Amendment restrictions doesn’t actually apply to them.
