Green McCain workers whipped into frenzy over slight?

February 7, 2016

In numerous ways, John McCain is AZ’s Bernie Sanders

Dan Nowicki, John McCain’s personal assigned reporter at the daily newspaper, attempts to marginalize Dr. Kelli Ward for her description of some of John McCain’s young campaign workers. He writes that her remarks during a Tucson radio interview have so outraged the young  “millennial Republicans,” that they are demanding an apology from the former two-term state senator, now mounting a credible challenge to McCain.

Nowicki refers to the aged senator who will be 80 by Election Day and is seeking his sixth 6-year term as “having nothing to do” with the contrived outrage. He never leaves fingerprints, since his surrogates take care of business.

Ward, a  Lake Havasu physician referred to “McCain kids” who “have no idea” about his record but who are “enticed by the glimmer of celebrity.”

Long-in-the-tooth Socialist Bernie Sanders is generating widespread support from young voters, consistently and strikingly outpolling liberal Hillary Clinton, as he promises to make college education free and retire student loan debt. Like McCain, Sanders vows to provide a pathway to citizenship for the approximately 30 million illegal aliens in the U.S., who will be competing for jobs and college placement with young American citizens. Obama-like, Sanders promises to take executive action, bypassing congress, to accomplish his goals.

On two consecutive Saturdays in January, Arizona elected precinct and state committeemen assembled for the Maricopa County and state GOP daylong meetings. As they entered each of the meetings, they were approached by fresh-faced young workers wearing T-shirts with John McCain’s name emblazoned on them —carrying clip boards with nominating petitions to qualify McCain for the ballot.  Approaching the arriving committeemen in the cold, still dark early morning hours, most of the workers were greeted with “No thank you” or “McCain? Are you kidding?” It was clear from the surprised looks followed by giggles as the scenario repeated that they were under the erroneous impression that Sen. John McCain has some cache among Republican voters. They were likely unaware that he has repeatedly been censured by those same committeemen in his own party, or of his retaliatory measures to purge them from their elective posts.  Dr. Kelli Ward was not off the mark in her assessment.

As to the McCain workers being described as “volunteers” a state delegate asked a couple of them standing outside the McCain booth if they were paid or volunteers. They nervously exchanged looks before the boldest replied, “We’d rather not say.” That’s not the response expected from enthusiastic volunteers.

Among the letter signers demanding Dr. Kelli Ward apologize were the former Arizona Teenage Republican  chairman, Students for Rubio Chair, along with ASU and UofA GOP activists. 

Since Rubio was integral to the McCain-Flake-Schumer-Durbin, et al amnesty Gang of Eight scheme and is endorsed by McCain’s alter-ego Jon Kyl, it’s not much of a leap to assume there’s a connection. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…you know the rest…..


Severe storms keep Congress out of D.C.

January 25, 2016

Weather or not we want them, they’ll be baaack

Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has put out the following Important Schedule Announcement, making us think there’s at least a small upside to the blizzards affecting Washington, D.C.

“Members are advised that due to the severity of the winter storm in the D.C. area, and its adverse impact on travel, we no longer expect votes in the House on Tuesday, January 26 and Wednesday, January 27.

Next votes in the House are scheduled at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, February 1. This is a change from the previously announced calendar.

Members are further advised that we expect to postpone consideration of two items originally planned for this week – H.R. 3662, Iran Terror Finance Transparency Act and the Veto Message on H.R. 3762, Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Act. These two items will now be considered the week of February 1st.”

American confidence in Congress has been in steady free fall mode for several years. According to this 2010 Gallup Poll, Congress came in lower than organized labor, newspapers and television news, HMOs and banks. By June 2014, the news was even more dismal, with Gallup reporting “historic lows,” as only 7 percent of Americans said they have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in Congress.

In July, 2015, Rasmussen Reports found most voters believe their own representatives have sold their vote and think congressional elections are rigged to benefit the incumbent. Just 14% think members of Congress almost always get reelected because they do a good job representing their constituents. Sixty-five percent (65%) think it’s because the election rules are rigged to benefit incumbents.

It wasn’t much better when Rasmussen Reports conducted another survey in Dec. 2015. Only nine percent (9%) of all voters think the average member of Congress listens to the voters he or she represents. Seventy-seven percent (77%) think the average member listens mostly to party leaders in Congress. It seems that pesky term “representative” is open to question.

The severe weather conditions have made life miserable for Americans across large swathes of the U.S.  We are not making light of the dire circumstances many in the affected areas face. It is, however, worth noting that less damage is done when congressional members are furloughed.


Shocking: Liberal PC politics imperil US citizens

January 21, 2016

Democrats play dangerous political games with national security

As Obama vows to accept 10,000 additional Syrian refugees this year, on Wednesday Senate Democrats —- by a vote of 55 to 43 —- rejected a bill to require vetting of Syrian and Iraqi refugees, an attempt to verify they posed no security risk before entering the US.

Obama threatened to veto the bill.

The American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act of 2015 or the American SAFE Act of 2015 should have passed with overwhelming support of both parties.


2016: The most important election of our lifetimes

January 1, 2016

Gird your loins! We’ve got work to do!

This New Year brings with it both opportunity and obligation.

Barack Obama, who has worked double-time* to weaken our nation and circumvent the U.S. Constitution that ensures our freedoms, will be termed out and a new — hopefully conservative Republican president — will be elected.

It’s our duty as responsible citizens to do all we can to inform ourselves about the issues and work to get out the vote this time as we never have before.  Apathy will enable the untrustworthy Hillary to return to the White House — this time calling the shots and making key appointments. Of vital importance are the Supreme Court vacancies that will occur as justices in their 80‘s leave the bench. The 2016 election will place in office a person with the potential to change the face of SCOTUS for decades to come.

Conservatives are justifiably disheartened by the collusive actions of House Speaker Paul Ryan and the GOP majority, who surrendered to Congressional Democrats on the $1.8 trillion tax and spending Omnibus Appropriations Act —- giving them all the bloat they and Obama desired.

We’ve seen what happens when our presidential choices are limited to unreliable, establishment squish candidates such as Mitt Romney, John McCain or Bob Dole. As GOP posers, U.S. House “leaders” John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell and their ilk have clearly demonstrated that it’s not only Democrats who are betraying us.

These are perilous times. As global atrocities committed in the name of Islam are given short shrift, we witness Barack Obama calling ISIS a “contained JV team;” former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton exposed as deceiving us about the carnage in Benghazi; and current Secretary of State John Kerry capitulating Neville Chamberlain-like, on guaranteeing a nuclear capable Iran.

We’ve got our work cut out for us.

Republican chemists cede power to Dems, Obama

December 19, 2015

GOP unable to handle success

It was just a short year ago — Nov. 2014 — CNN, the left-wing television network, went apoplectic, reporting: 

“A Republican tide ripped the Senate away from Democrats giving the GOP full control of Congress and the power to pin down President Barack Obama during his last two years in office.

The thumping win upends the balance of power between the White House and Capitol Hill only six years after Obama’s Democrats swept to power and marginalized Republicans in a rush to reform health care, Wall Street and pass a huge stimulus package.

Now, it’s Democrats who will take the back seat on Capitol Hill, relying mostly on the power of the filibuster to stymie Republicans and keep Obama’s legacy intact.”

The equally stunned New York Times headlined its report:

“Riding Wave of Discontent, G.O.P. Takes Senate — Election Results: Republicans Win Senate Control With at Least 7 New Seats.”

Struggling to grasp the enormity of the repudiation of Barack Obama, the liberal newspaper blamed the “uneven character of the economic recovery.”

They needn’t have expended so much energy on anxiety. Republicans are chemists. Its long been known they can take pure gold and turn it to excrement. Paul Ryan, the acclaimed House Speaker replacing John Boehner proved that adage as he oversaw the betrayal of Republican principles in particular and Americans in general by shepherding the $1.1 trillion Omnibus bill that literally funds every major aspect of Obama’s promise to  “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”

The Senate Vote can be seen here. Roll Call carries the video and report of the 316 -113 House Vote.

Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh lamented the GOP Sells America Down the River. His conclusion? As he blasted the Republican-led Congress’ passage of the massive 2,009-page Omnibus bill that has the White House declaring victory, a frustrated Limbaugh said, “There is no Republican Party! You know, we don’t even need a Republican Party if they’re gonna do this. Just elect Democrats, disband the Republican Party, and let the Democrats run it, because that’s what’s happening anyway.”


Sellout Paul Ryan delivers Obama’s $ trillion+ Christmas gift

December 18, 2015

Omnibus giveaway puts Americans at further risk

If you bought into the fallacy that U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan would be the optimum replacement for former House Speaker John Boehner, this morning’s edition of Breitbart will disabuse you of that notion.

As was reported in this revealing and detailed article Wednesday, Ryan’s first major legislative achievement is a total and complete sell-out of the American people masquerading as an appropriations bill. Each of these programs, the outrageous spending, and the horrendous implications are given coverage in this must read post:

(1) Ryan’s Omnibus Fully Funds DACA

(2) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds Sanctuary Cities

(3) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds All Refugee Programs

(4) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds All of the Mideast Immigration Programs That Have Been Exploited by Terrorists in Recent Years 

(5) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds Illegal Alien Resettlement

(6) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds the Release of Criminal Aliens

(7) Ryan’s Omnibus Quadruples H-2B Foreign Worker Visas 

(8) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds Tax Credits for Illegal Aliens

(9) Ryan’s Omnibus Locks-In Huge Spending Increases

(10) Ryan’s Omnibus Fails to Allocate Funds to Complete the 700-Mile Double-Layer Border Fence That Congress Promised the American People

Since assuming the role of Speaker, Ryan has grown a beard. Is it to hide his shameless actions or to show solidarity with the unable to be vetted Syrians given a pass in the $ trillion omnibus bill he shepherded through congress?

Consider the fact that his slippery charlatan was Mitt Romney’s 2012 Vice Presidential running mate. No wonder political outsiders have appeal as thinking Americans consider who will next occupy the White House in these increasingly perilous times.


Clyde, the unwitting Lynch-pin of racism

December 10, 2015

Political correctness goes awry as historic college Pres. Clyde A. Lynch gets kicked to the curb

Nearly 160 years ago Charles Dickens wrote A Tale of Two Cites. The opening paragraph of the novel began with these words: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity……

We’re not going highbrow on our readers today, but Dickens’ words can’t be improved upon when it comes to the lunacy taking place at Lebanon Valley College in rural Pennsylvania. LVC is a small, Methodist-based, private liberal arts institution that is obviously taking the word ‘liberal’ far too seriously.

The 1,600+ undergrads also appear to have too much time on their hands. The students are now demanding that administrators rename a building long known as “Lynch Memorial Hall,” due to the negative racial overtones of the word “lynch.” Imagine the chaos that would ensue if a building was named after U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White. Will they demand the recall of U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, a black woman?

In a nation focused on Jihadist terror attacks, led by a president who governs via executive orders bypassing congress and shredding the Constitution, buried under insurmountable debt, leaders who worship at the debatable altar of global warminger…climate change, a still flaccid economy and shaky employment realities, it would appear these leaders-in-training would have other concerns.

The campus building was named to honor Clyde A. Lynch, who was president of Lebanon Valley College from 1932 until his death in 1950. The students, however, claim his name is offensive since the term ‘lynch’ recalls late 19th century hangings of mostly black men by lawless mobs.

The name change was included on a list of demands the students presented to school administrators, including “a more diverse curriculum, more sensitivity training for staff and regular surveys of the racial climate on campus.”

It appears as though the Office of  Multicultural Affairs already deals with those issues and more, veering off into Diversity La-La Land.  Priorities include the importance of instructing on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, physical and mental ability, religion, culture, and age. In other words, the things that divide rather than unite us. How did previous generations ever learn when they concentrated on studies and didn’t venture into “exemplifying inclusive excellence by fostering an environment of advocacy, support, and awareness within the realms of social justice”? 

Among the full-time students this year 83.6 percent are white, 5.2 percent are Hispanic, 3.1 percent are black, 2.4 percent are Asian, 2.2 percent are two or more races, 0.3 percent are international students and 0.2 percent American/Alaska natives.

Who’s doing the grousing?
