Proof Dr. Kelli Ward frightens John McCain

April 27, 2016

Ann Kirkpatrick is an example of McMisdirection. Primary challenger Dr. Kelli Ward presents actual threat

The negative commercials have hit the airwaves.  They not only show a distorted image of Dr. Kelli Ward, a two-term Arizona state senator, military wife, mother and  physician, but also grotesque misrepresentation of her conservative record while absurdly claiming she would “leave Arizonans vulnerable to attack from terrorists.” 

Unless you’re paying close attention, it would be easy to miss the group putting out the vile deception: Arizona Grassroots Action PAC. Lisa Lisker is listed as the PAC’s treasurer. The address of this PAC attempting to present itself as Arizona grassroots activists is curiously based in Alexandria, Virginia — a stone’s throw from the seats of power in Washington, D.C. The high-dollar donors are listed in the Federal Elections Commission April 15, 2016 Report of Receipts and Disbursements — covering the period from January 1, 2016 through March 31, 2016.

Even after making disbursements of $127,619.20, the PAC still has $714,062.44 listed as “Cash on Hand.” Take a guess where that money will be directed. Lisa Lisker, owner of a D.C. area firm which provides political financial consulting and collaboration with PACs, was coincidentally the treasurer for Marco Rubio’s failed presidential bid. Rubio and McCain were connected by the golden amnesty chain holding together the ‘Gang of Eight’ Republicrats and Dems, all committed to the flood of cheap illegal labor entering the U.S. The Chamber of Commerce generously funds the candidates who tender their votes resulting in undercutting wages of American workers.

Among the scant smattering of Arizona donors, the list is rife with big spenders from California, Florida, Nevada, New York, Maryland, Massachusetts and Michigan — all of whom obviously have the best interests of Arizonans at heart — people like San Francisco resident Gregory Wendt.

Writing about John McCain’s retaliatory actions including colluding with Obama donor Gregory Wendt after his embarrassing censure by his home state’s elected delegates, FrontPagemag, correctly noted:

“There’s something obviously slimy about a powerful senator using out-of-state money to try and purge local critics in his own party. It’s anti-democratic and exactly the kind of thing that McCain, who claimed to be for campaign finance reform, was expected to oppose.

Except he’s been doing it for a while.

This is the problem with McCain. He’s not only a liberal Republican, but he’s vindictive and ethically challenged. He doesn’t seem to represent Arizona. He represents a handful of wealthy out-of-state donors trying to manufacture voters still willing to blindly pull the lever for him.”

Although John McCain, who will be 80 by Election Day and is arrogantly running for another 6-year senate term, sends out numerous campaign beg-a-thon emails citing Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick as his challenger as if he has a clear route to the General Election. He knows — as do his donors who fund this despicable PAC — that his actual challenge is Dr. Kelli Ward. That fact is made all too clear by the fact that it’s solely Republican Kelli Ward who is in the sights of the vicious, liberal-funded ad campaign. McCain’s tried and true modus operandi is to tack right at election time and revert back immediately after the votes are tallied. He and his junior sidekick, Jeff Flake, who has honed the same strategy, were working with far left Democrats Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin other amnesty”gangsters” within hours after the ballots were counted.

Kelli Ward says, “Send a fresh, new voice to the U.S. Senate: Let’s shake up Washington together.” Arizonans have that chance!  Let’s not botch it. Show these deceivers Arizona Republicans can’t be bought by out-of-state leftists.


“Boycott Target” gaining steam

April 26, 2016

Target’s radical activism turns bathrooms, dressing rooms into “gender-neutral” predator havens

The American Family Association is calling for a boycott of Target stores after the retail giant announced it would allow men to use the women’s restrooms and dressing rooms in their stores.

Last August, Seeing Red AZ wrote Target veers far off target, noting the corporate decision to  no longer label toys according to the sex of the child they are aimed at. Gender-neutral signs will also appear in the children’s bedding section. The only place gender labels will still remain is in the children’s clothing department — and who knows how much longer that will continue?

Arizona Target stores are listed here. When the neighborhood go-to store pays more attention to 1 percent of their shoppers over 99 percent, it’s time to reevaluate your priorities, and take your money elsewhere.

Sign the boycott pledge here and scroll down to read the posted examples of what Target’s policy can lead to. Call Target Guest Relations at 1-800-440-0680 and let them know you‘ve signed the pledge — and why.


Leftwing AZ Republic goes to bat for John McCain

April 25, 2016

Republic’s parent company Gannett pushing hostile takeover of Tribune Publishing

The front page of the left -of-center Arizona Republic was ablaze with an above-the-fold article and photo featuring an intense looking John McCain. He’s very concerned, donc’ha know, about what the newspaper refers to as “tales of suffering caused to Navajos by the Gold King Mine toxic spill.” McCain is also distressed about veterans. It’s election season and after decades in D.C. Arizona’s senior senator — who will be 80 by Election Day and is running for yet another 6-year term — knows how to gin up votes. With his overly long career on the line, he can’t afford to dismiss any potential constituencies these days.

McCain, who was literally chased off the Navajo Nation by tribal members, and told to “Get off our land,” less than a year ago, has recently developed an epiphany regarding Navajo issues. He needs tribal votes in a race that resembles a disastrous career ender for him.  His reception was similar to the one CD-1 Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick received from constituents assembled at a local grocery store for a town hall meeting that went very much awry. She wanted no part of a question and answer session and high tailed it out within minutes to hoots and hollers.  A man in the crowd reminded her, “You’re our employee!” Her abrupt exit was cheered, along with the shout, “Don’t come back!”

Expect John McCain to take another border stroll and make promises to “secure the border“ he has no intention of keeping. This deceitful behavior wins him prime space and accolades at the pro-illegal alien, pro-amnesty, Gannett-owned  Arizona Republic.

If the news conglomerate is successful in its unsolicited bid to buy out the majority of publishing entities for $815 Million, it will control the nation’s news as it does Arizona’s.

 According to it’s own press release, Gannett Co. Inc.,  which recently completed the $280 million acquisition of Journal Media Group. is “disappointed” that Tribune Publishing has refused its “highly compelling” offer. Gannett currently owns 108 newspapers and their affiliated digital properties which now comprise the newly created USA TODAY NETWORK.

If successful in its  takeover, George Orwell’s best seller “1984 ”will have come to pass. Read our April 3, 2013 account of Winston Smith. It will fill in the blanks.


AZ School funding sham exposed: Vote NO on Prop. 123

April 20, 2016

Problematic Proposition 123 fraught with deception

 The Arizona Daily Independent runs a fact-filled report titled, DeWit: Arizona “Run Like A Mini Dougtatorship.” State treasurer Jeff DeWit boldly states his opposition to Prop. 123, the flim-flam education funding scheme being relentlessly pushed by Gov. Doug Ducey.

The far left Arizona Republic newspaper gives it an editorial  stamp of approval, writing: “Proposition 123 represents an opportunity to infuse big money into Arizona’s K-12 public schools. It is step one in a long journey of restoring proper funding to our schools.” The editorialist unconvincingly adds, “but with tough expectations for Arizona’s governor.” 

Take a look at that “big money” being donated to the promotion of Prop. 123 by some of the wealthiest individuals and business entities in the state. Then ask yourself what’s in it for them. Rest assured it’s not the ability to nurture warm feelings of benevolence.

The donor’s names and their campaign donations follow the final paragraph of the ADI report.

When asked about the large donations to the pro-Prop 123 campaign, DeWit said that the money was provided by “the richest people in the state. From what I understand – what they say down there,” referring to the Capitol, “there is talk that they have been promised future tax cuts. There are cuts that are targeted to that, and that’s why they are giving the money. There is a reward kind of return. I have been told that there was a fundraiser at the Governor’s house where they wrote these checks. He invited them over, and there were some closed room talks and they wrote big checks. And that’s it.”

Seeing Red AZ posted Vote NO on deceptive Prop. 123 on Monday. It contains important information to enable voters to make an informed choice against this duplicitous measure.


Vote NO on deceptive Prop. 123

April 18, 2016

Special Election May 17, 2016 — Early balloting begins April 20

Proposition 123 is being heralded as Arizona’s education panacea, providing school funding without raising taxes. If you believe in the tooth fairy, this will be right up your alley. Ballots are being mailed this week. We all have busy lives, but it’s imperative we get up to speed on the ramifications of this proposition.

Ask yourself why current state treasurer Jeff DeWit and previous treasurers Carol Springer and Dean Martin oppose amending the Arizona Constitution, raiding our state’s Permanent Land Trust Endowment and guaranteeing tax increases, including raising your property taxes without adequately addressing our state’s school funding problems. As Arizona’s Chief Banker and Investment Officer, Treasurer DeWit oversees more than $13 Billion in state assets and serves as an investment manager for local governments. His extensive background in finance makes him a credible source on this issue.

The Arizona Secretary of State’s Office provides arguments filed for and against Proposition 123. Since we strongly oppose the measure, we are providing the No on Prop. 123 opinions. Read them over carefully.

This brief video explains the better answer to school funding for Arizona‘s students   Protect the future of Arizona’s K-12 education system. More information is available here.

7 reasons to vote NO on Prop. 123

Prop 123 in a nutshell.

What got us here?

A different path to take.

Knowledge is power. Vote wisely. Our children and their futures are too important for this quick, but deceptive, fix.

Arizona’s K-12 education system is underfunded, but Proposition 123 will make sure it stays that way for the next generation. No one would argue that Arizona’s schools have enough money.  We all know that Arizona students deserve better, but Proposition 123 doesn’t solve the problem.  It doesn’t bring any revenue that is not currently owed to our schools, it spends future money today, while constitutionally limiting spending for future students.


McCain back in campaign mode: tacks right

April 14, 2016

Just like clockwork — every six years — perpetual candidate Señor Juan McAmnesty, who will be 80 by Election Day,  swerves into campaign mode, talking tough on the border.

Now he’s not merely trying to sound conservative, he’s admitting he’s in “the race of his lifetime,” as he refers to his 2016 campaign in his most recent email soliciting funds.

“Right now,” McCain whines as he ignores his conservative Primary opponent and leaps directly to the General Election, “my opponent, Ann Kirkpatrick, is in California, hobnobbing with big money, left-wing Hollywood donors as part of a closed-door conference put on by liberal fundraising network Democracy Alliance.” Then in the mother of all ironies he says,“ You see, Congresswoman Kirkpatrick has a habit of putting her liberal crony friends ahead of Arizona.”

That’s exactly what billionaire socialist George Soros’s pal John McCain has done throughout his decades-long political career. If he wasn’t colluding with Ted  Kennedy, Russ Feingold or Hillary Clinton, he and his doppelganger Jeff Flake, busied themselves putting together the infamous amnesty promoting, La Raza-championed,  Gang of Eight, with far left Democrat  Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Dick Durban (D-IL), Robert Melendez (D-NJ), and Michael Bennet (D-CO). Arizonans McCain and Flake were joined by fellow amnesty-bent RINOs Marco Rubio (R-FL),and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in the so-called “bi-partisan” scheme.

The Daily Caller reported John McCain and Jeff Flake have the distinction of being neck-in-neck for the least popular U.S. Senator prize. Few Arizonans were surprised by the revelation.

We should never forget this is who they actually are — most comfortable with the most liberal of Washington insiders and laughingly backing their issues. Here it was amnesty:

Are you inclined to vote away your right to vote?

April 12, 2016

 The Arizona Republic would like nothing better than to relieve you of the burden

Fishy_Arizona_RepublicRobert Robb, the libertarian-leaning columnist at the daily newspaper has often been the stand alone voice of reason at the increasingly leftist publication. Recently, however, he’s been veering into uncharted territory, pulling a complete switcheroo on issues of importance. In February we exposed the scheme being pushed by the Arizona Republic, calling him out for his disappointing change of mind from his previous stance on the “Top Two Primary,” titling the piece, “Robert Robb: Forgetful, schizophrenic or seeking job security?” The post includes Robb’s original logical assessment of the overreach in the second paragraph.

Now with State Treasurer Jeff DeWit announcing his intention not to seek reelection when his term ends in 2018, we get another odd dose of Robert Robb. This time he’s devoted a column to asking, “Why do we elect a state treasurer?”

We’ve been down this road before. In this May 2015 post “AZ Republic wants to mute your voice, muzzle your vote,” we reminded our readers about the deception that has previously come packaged as a component of the benign-sounding “Home Rule.” We characterized the contemptible plan to separate citizens from their votes with these words:

“There have been other such schemes over the years. The warm and fuzzy sounding “Home Rule,” included provisions to appoint all county “line officers” as they were dismissively called, including the County Attorney, Sheriff, Treasurer and School Superintendent. Though its intent was to eliminate citizen’s ability to vote for these and other county officials —-  turning the immense appointment power over to the Board of Supervisors —- it was promoted as merely a “housekeeping” budgetary provision. Arizona voters caught on quickly as did the elected office holders, both successfully pushing back against this ruse.”

The slippery tricksters at the Fish Wrap even went editorial to advocate for appointing the five members of the Arizona Corporation Commission. In July 2012 we wrote, “Left promotes schemes to separate you from your vote.”

In fact the intended mission was to get citizens to the ballot box to….vote away their right to vote. Under the guise of simplifying the process, we would cede to the Board of Supervisors our ability to vote for what were contemptuously termed “line officers.” 

The argument always began with the office of the mine inspector — a state official.  “Who knows who the mine inspector is or what he does? Why should that be an elective office?” From there it went down the line of county officers from assessor to  recorder and every office in between.  When the Sheriff was the topic, the incessant liberal echo was “The police chief is appointed, why not the sheriff?”

The plan is to encourage voters to vote to give their votes away. Think of it as a deliberate attempt to separate you from your vote by telling you others can vote on your behalf more efficiently and effectively.

What each of these offices have in common is the fact that they are all held by elected Republicans. No wonder the newspaper wants them appointed.
