Jockeying for RNC chair begins in earnest

December 2, 2016

Ambitious Robert Graham picked the wrong team with anti-Trump McCain and Flake

In mid-February we reported AZ GOP chair Robert Graham maneuvers for top RNC post which included an ASU Cronkite News video with Graham replicating a McCain gaffe confusing Barack Obama with what appears to be any Republican. McCain confused Mitt Romney with Barack Obama. In Graham’s case he mistook “Mr. Trump” for Obama — not  a recommended move for a guy angling to lead the Republican National Committee.

Both mortifying videos and more are included in the linked report.

The hurdles are getting trickier for the ambitious and vindictive Robert Graham to navigate. Graham’s quest to replace former RNC Chairman Reince Priebus — who has been tapped as President-elect Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff — appears to be evaporating.

Though other names are being mentioned, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, an early Donald Trump supporter, is said to be considering running for the lead spot in the Republican Party. 

With Priebus now busy with the formation of the Trump cabinet and transition team, there is an urgency to fill the intra-party post. Unlike a cabinet position, the RNC chair doesn’t require congressional confirmation.

Christie, who formerly chaired the Republican Governors Association and has relationships with many of the party’s key donors appears to be in the advantageous catbird seat.

It should be remembered that neither Robert Graham nor his mentors John McCain and Jeff Flake attended Donald Trump’s initial rally when thousands of supporters waited in line for hours in the scorching July 11, 2015 heat at the Phoenix Convention Center to hear Trump speak. Maricopa County Chairman Tyler Bowyer hosted the event and he and Sheriff Joe Arpaio were onstage with now President-elect Trump. The two senators and Graham boycotted Trump’s subsequent Arizona appearances. McCain, who has referred to conservatives as “crazies” and has worked to purge them from elected precinct committeemen posts, eventually withdrew his lukewarm support of Trump. Blowhard Flake made headlines by making the rounds of broadcast networks telling whoever would listen that Trump was not worthy of his support — a traitorous message the liberal media were all too eager to air. With Donald Trump letting no grass grow under his feet as he puts together his team prior to his Jan. 20, 2017 inaugural — Graham should be dismissed out of hand.

Obama’s frequent traveling companion and basketball teammate Jeff Flake, always eager to promote amnesty for illegals, will be a candidate for reelection in 2018 and should feel the same sting of rejection. He represents no one but his own ego.


Obama’s DOJ continues implementing absurdities

November 25, 2016

Putting the (non-citizen) chickens in charge of guarding the (American) henhouse

It seems like an endless wait, but soon enough the Obama administration will be a thing of the past. We might want to forget that throughout the past eight years Barack Obama never gave up on fulfilling his campaign threat to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” *

Yet not remembering what this country has been through sets up a repetition of the same. Corruption has been a hallmark of the Obama years.

We must never forget the nadir into which we have been plunged and the preposterous policies implemented — such as this:

Fox News reports that the Denver Sheriff’s Department was fined $10,000 for hiring only U.S. citizens. We couldn’t make this stuff up.

The Department of Justice released this press release titled “Justice Department Settles Immigration-Related Discrimination Claim Against the Denver Sheriff Department.

From the Fox report:

The Denver Sheriff’s Department set out to hire scores of deputies last year to lessen the burden on its staff and cut millions in overtime.

It advertised for prospects, and included U.S. citizenship as a requirement. By this past spring, it had hired 200 deputies.

The Justice Department did not congratulate the agency ––  instead, it slapped Colorado’s largest sheriff’s department with a $10,000 fine and a host of steps it must take to address what was described as discriminatory hiring.

In a summary of the settlement on its website, the Justice Department said that in insisting on citizenship, the Denver Sheriff’s Department violated an anti-discrimination provision in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) that forbids employers from hiring only U.S. citizens except in cases where it is mandated “by law, regulation, executive order or government contract.”

* “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

— Barack Obama, October 30, 2008

 “We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”

— Michelle Obama, May 14, 2008

 


Tucker Carlson eviscerates overindulged, liberal college student

November 24, 2016

This vacuous punk wants to be an American history teacher. Imagine him propagandizing students with his personal perspective that allows him to view his own parents as being able to afford his pricey education through money they garnered profiteering from slavery. Unless they’re a couple of hundred years old, it’s a difficult argument to follow. They foot the bill for their son’s private Hampshire College tuition to the tune of $62,000 a year. Here’s an example of what’s influencing his judgment.


Trump’s victory exposes McCain, Flake’s hypocrisy

November 13, 2016

In the weeks preceding the Nov. 8 election, Arizona’s two pretentious Republicrat senators John McCain and Jeff Flake went to great lengths denigrating Donald Trump — they each made a grand show of saying they would not vote for him.  McCain’s statement can be read here.  One of Jeff Flake’s many public declarations on the subject is here.

Now Trump is the president-elect, and the duplicitous duo are vying to be the one to plant the most kisses on his posterior. These two hypocrites would do well to remember that the symbol of the Republican Party is the elephant — noted for it’s excellent memory. Since both McCain and Flake are unreliable squish Republicrats, we should never forget that they each voted against Trump.  Regardless of how you slice it, those were votes for Hillary Clinton — who is as much a bottom dragger in the areas of honesty and trustworthiness as these two goons are. The Daily Caller noted that John McCain’s abysmal 30 percent approval rating was topped only by Jeff Flake, whose approval rating has fallen to 27 percent!

McCain’s change of heart tweet:

“Congrats to President-Elect Donald Trump. As Chairman of the Armed Service Committee, I’ll work to confront national security challenges and support troops.”

The words McCain publicly used to describe his own wife were far worse than what  he claimed was so offensive.

Jeff the Flake was also quick to lavish praise:

 “Congrats to President-Elect Trump on a big win and a gracious and healing speech. I look forward to working with him. Now, back to eating crow.”

Flake’s son Tanner used far more offensive language, denigrating any and all on his Facebook postings. Tanner never had to acknowledge his despicable behavior and apologize.  Daddy apologized for him.

Hypocrisy is the name of the game with these two fraudulent Republicans. Trust them at your own peril.


Political dynasties: Generational job security

November 12, 2016

On the downhill slide but unable to relinquish power, former President Bill Clinton misspeaks,  and spaces out while chewing on his tongue and in an attempt to ensure his scandal-plagued wife isn’t indicted, inappropriately maneuvers to meet clandestinely with U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at Sky Harbor Airport — ostensibly to discuss his golf game and grandchildren. (wink, wink.)

The Clinton’s have been known as less than upstanding throughout their political careers which Bill jump-started in Arkansas when he first was elected Attorney General and then Governor. 

Prior to her stint in the U,S. Senate and appointment as Secretary of State (supported by both Jon Kyl and John McCain), Hillary busied herself threatening Bill’s female squeezes, declaring word of his numerous dalliances were part of the “vast right wing conspiracy.” His own staff was much more on target, referring to the ongoing revelations as “bimbo eruptions.” 

Now the New York Post reports that Chelsea Clinton is being groomed for a congressional seat when U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey, 79, retires. Just as most parents do, the Clinton’s purchased the $1.16 million house next door to theirs to guarantee Chelsea a residence within the congressional district

This political dynasty appears endless. Chelsea’s husband, Marc Mezvinsky is the son of Edward Mezvinsky, a Democrat former U.S. Rep. who represented Iowa’s 1st congressional district from 1973-1977.  But the story doesn’t stop there. Freedom Outpost reports that Ed Mezvinsky was indicted — and pled guilty — to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. He was finally caught embezzling more than $10 million through a Ponzi scheme he devised involving a Nigerian e-mail scam. He was sentenced to 80 months in federal prison.  After his release and probation, he still owes $9.4 million in restitution. ABC News carries an in-depth reportEd Mezvinsky’s former wife Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky — also a Democrat — is a former U.S. Rep. from Pennsylvania.

The large Kennedy family has had generations of family members holding elective office in several states — all as Democrats. Republicans are no slackers in this arena.  The Bush Family, produced father and son U.S. Presidents. George H. W. Bush and his son George W.  Hungry for the ultimate job, Jeb Bush, a former Governor of Florida generated no enthusiasm as a Republican presidential candidate. He might have fared better running as the liberal he is. Jeb’s son George P. Bush holds public office in Texas.

But, we digress.  Back to Chelsea. She and hubby Marc have two young children. Will they be put on this political conveyor belt for job security? It’s heady stuff having drivers and security details, and rooms full of people stand and applaud you for merely walking in. The pay isn’t bad either.  There’s even more if you start a “ Foundation.


FBI Dir. Comey caves again — Sunday before election

November 7, 2016

 ….Nothing new here, folks, move on, move on

Released on the Sunday afternoon preceding Election Day, FBI Director James Comey’s terse letter to congress, contains this preposterous sentence: 

“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”

GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s cogent response delivered to a crowd of thousands in the Detroit suburb of Sterling Heights, Michigan after receiving the news:

‘You can’t review 650,000 new emails in eight days! You can’t do it, folks!’

Phx Councilman DiCiccio voting for Soros funded Penzone

November 6, 2016

If you’re a Republican or Independent residing in District 6 who still has an unmarked ballot you’re planning  to take to your polling place on Election Day Tuesday Nov. 8, this news is not too late for you.  Unfortunately, many others have been conned by Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio, who at the eleventh hour has publicly revealed himself as a Paul Penzone voter.

This is the same rough ’er up Paul Penzone —  a  Democrat former Phoenix Police Sergeant who was put on administrative leave after a domestic violence incident that included the issuance of an order of protection against him by his then-estranged wife.  Under the order, Penzone was unable to possess firearms — making it difficult to carry out his duties as a police officer. Now he wants to be elected as Maricopa County Sheriff in his second challenge to Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

This is the same Paul Penzone who is now accepting tainted, strings-attached $millions in campaign funds from radically left-wing globalist George Soros.  Multibillionaire Soros, who abhors national borders, is currently focusing on electing lenient prosecutors and law enforcement officials across the U.S. In addition to funding Penzone, Soros is also a longtime political benefactor of Hillary Clinton and John McCain.

Politico reports on America-hating, anti capitalist George Soros’ quiet efforts to overhaul the U.S. justice system. Here in Maricopa County he is also targeting County Attorney Bill Montgomery, looking to replace him with committed leftist Diego Rodriguez.

Although the Phoenix City Council and Mayor deviously run as “non-partisans,” voters who pay attention know their political bents. Sal DiCiccio has even scored points wagging his GOP credentials, which makes his treachery even more abhorrent.

In this recent article in the Ahwatukee Foothills News, DiCiccio — whose district encompasses Ahwatukee — ripped Sheriff Joe Arpaio in an interview, but stopped short of encouraging support for Arpaio’s opponent, Democrat Paul Penzone, since he would then risk being sanctioned by the Republican Party.

“But I can tell you that nobody in my family is voting for Joe, and that’s really, really hard because I like him personally and I like many of his policies,” DiCiccio claimed.

With friends like Sal DiCiccio, who needs enemies?

This is the same Sal DiCiccio who refers to liberal Tempe Mayor and single-term Democrat Congressman Harry Mitchell as his early mentor. DiCiccio cut his political fangs working in John McCain’s office. Yes, the same McCain who also wants our vote, after withdrawing his support from GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Slipperiness abounds. In Jan. 2010 the Arizona Republic reviewing conflict of interest dealings along a proposed freeway route wrote that it “took a closer look at DiCiccio’s possible stake in the planned 22-mile freeway, examining city financial forms and court records, plus letters, e-mails and other documents obtained under a public-records request. The picture that emerged shows that DiCiccio:” full report here

Seeing Red AZ stands with Republican career law enforcement professional, Sheriff Joe Arpaiowho does the job Maricopa County citizens elected him to do over six consecutive terms. He speaks plainly and speaks the truth. It’s not difficult to understand.
