Skewing the news Arizona style

April 20, 2019

No wonder the Arizona Republic is dying

With its last gasps, the dying, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper continues to spew venom at Republicans. On Jan. 1, 2019, the newspaper was described as ahomeless vagrant on borrowed time,” after having been forced, by declining readership and following massive layoffs, to sell the building and parking structure it has occupied for decades.

Limited vocabulary when describing Republicans is de rigueur. It spikes into incendiary high gear when conservatives are the topic. 

A classic example is a column by sob-story aficionada turned bomb thrower, Laurie Roberts, who describes physician Kelli Ward, the newly elected state Republican chairwoman, using these intended to incite words: “Ward is the reigning queen of the far-right fringe.” Columnist Robert Robb described Dr. Ward’s election as “meaningless.” The backdrop for Robb’s assertion is border security, which his pro-open border and amnesty supporting employer, The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) adamantly opposes. He now sings its tune like a trained parrot.

What Laurie Roberts refers to as the “far-right fringe,” are actually the majority of grassroots Republican elected state committeemen who elected Dr. Ward, a former state senator, while strongly objecting to the prospect of reelecting the ineffectual phantom chairman Jonathan Lines. He was put in place by his slippery predecessor Robert Graham, who still ran the party since Lines resides 200 miles away in Yuma, runs a roofing business and has 11 kids to parent.

The newspaper also has former state senate president Russell Pearce in its sights again. He is referred to as a “hard right conservative.“ In AZ Republicese, this is no compliment. His current job is listed twice in the same article, just in case rabble-rousers missed it the first time.

The report veers off the charts by referring to groups labeled “extremist” by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The group which the newspaper refers to as “monitoring hate,” has itself been outed as a source of vicious hate. Watch this 5-minute Prager University video for a healthy dose of truth.

The agenda driven newspaper continues to harp on the Mueller report as if President Trump had been found guilty of obstruction of justice or Russian collusion, when exactly the opposite conclusion was reached. Though dying of a thousand self-inflicted cuts, it follows many of its articles with these words, “Support local journalism. Subscribe to (gives an email address.)”

Hari-Kari is an ancient Japanese form of ritual suicide by disembowelment. The Arizona Republic is taking the slower path, but the result will be the same. Insulting its remaining subscribers is not a successful business model, yet it is the one to which it is bonded.

Newspaper Death Watch is a web site chronicling the demise of hard copy newspapers, including a section called ‘Works In Progress,’ listing major metro dailies that have cut frequency or adopted hybrid online/print or online-only models. It won’t be much longer before the anorexic, radically left-wing local daily joins the list.

Pres. Trump vindicated! Vile key AZ agent unmentioned

April 19, 2019

Mueller conclusion: No collusion

The left is in full-blown meltdown mode following the conclusion of a two-and-a-half-year investigation, the end game of which was to charge President Trump with Russian collusion in connection with the 2016 election, culminating, they hoped, in charges of impeachment. Preceding the release, Thursday’s edition of the Hillary Clinton-endorsing Arizona Republic headlined, “White House braces for report.” The single page USA Today insert warned, “Trump team mobilizes for Mueller’s report…Plan: Read quickly, put out responses.” 

The collusion charges fell with a dull thud as the 448-page Mueller Report not only exonerated President Trump but also his relatives and associates, who have been put through daily hell as the manufactured hoax gained momentum via repetition by Congressional Democrats and their willing cohorts in the leftist media. The radically obsessed Trump haters have perfected a means of dispensing words and phrases which are repeated in mynahesque fashion by like-thinking adherents throughout the day. The networks have been filled with commentators using identical language (example).

Trump Derangement Syndrome has moved from a catch phrase describing the lunacy of Never-Trumpers to a observable disorder with obvious contagious symptoms. Most noticeable is the lack of focus, followed by voices raising several octaves, slurred speech, reddened faces and indignation induced tremors.

Now they have to admit the phony “dossier,” was a construct by the campaign of Hillary Clinton with the sole purpose of discrediting Donald Trump.

When John McCain was alive, a fear of his notorious retribution techniques forced silence. After three cross country funerals in a week last year, it’s a safe bet John McCain is no longer above ground.

Now its been verified that the vengeful and jealous McCain was key to the sordid hoax intended to bring down the candidacy of Donald Trump, and keep him out of the White House.

McCain worked on behalf of his close friend Hillary Clinton, alleging the Russians had compromising information on candidate Trump, personally delivering it to then-FBI Director James Comey in 2016.

In his own inimitable and vulgar style, McCain acknowledged in 2017, “I did what duty demanded I do,” in passing on the documents. “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell.”

Yet as the salacious report exploded and dominated the news, McCain’s involvement mysteriously faded into the smutty haze. Neither serious illness nor even death should obscure the facts of his key role in purposely spreading vicious lies and attempting to keep Donald Trump from the presidency, a position McCain coveted but, thankfully, never attained.


Mark Kelly: Dem $enate challenger’s big con

April 16, 2019

Mr. Gabby Giffords, a deceptive, hypocritical gun disdaining Democrat, also know as Mark Kelly, is reportedly steering clear of corporate PAC money as he wages his fledgling campaign for the U.S. Senate. Republican Martha McSally, who formerly represented AZ CD 2 in the U.S. House, currently holds that post, though she will have to run again in 2022.

Kelly has placed himself in a precarious position with the local newspaper, which never sees a leftist it doesn’t deem worthy of support. His facile two-step on corporate funding has forced the Hillary Clinton-endorsing newspaper to headline a report on Kelly with these words, “Mark Kelly shuns corporate PACs, but his ties with corporate money are more complicated.”

“More complicated”? The failing newspaper could have saved space and ink by simply printing “deceitful.”

Leftist Act Blue — akin to MoveOn.org, part of a syndicate of radical George Soros funded groups masquerading as “grassroots” organizations — unequivocally declares, “Mark Kelly is rejecting corporate PAC money.”

In this campaign video posted on Twitter, Kelly damns the money that traditionally has funded political campaigns claiming it “divides us” and “poisons our democracy.”

Mark Kelly’s campaign rhetoric is crafted to give him an aura of high mindedness, but don’t be fooled into thinking he actually rejects money from business interests. He’s just another double-talking Democrat saying whatever he thinks it takes to win an election.

Kelly held a stealth fundraiser in Washington, D.C. in March. It was later revealed to be hosted by lobbyists whose corporate clients include Comcast, Exxon Mobil and Chevron, Wall Street banks such as JPMorgan Chase, defense industry giant Lockheed Martin and the massive pharmaceutical lobbying group PhRMA. Walmart, numerous health care, real estate, securities companies and sport franchises were represented — all of whom were kept under wraps by hypocrite Mark Kelly.

What Kelly does and says, as he makes these assertions while corporate lobbyists are raising increasing amounts of money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) bear no resemblance to each other. Although Mark Kelly has never previously run for office, the Obama cohort is as much of a charlatan as any seasoned Democrat politico.

Until his duplicity was exposed, Kelly continued to earn money on the speakers circuit from groups aligned with business interests, making an average of $25,000 per speech for presentations made through the Keppler Speakers bureau. He gives the same speech, merely filling in the blanks pertaining to the group he’s addressing and city he’s appearing in. Mark Kelly must have something to recommend him, but he does a commendable job keeping whatever it is concealed.

Second Amendment supporters should be aware Kelly heads a gun control group, “Americans for Responsible Solutions.” Mark Kelly is nothing more than a slippery leftist with zero credentials


Cindy McCain: A star is born

April 14, 2019

Slickly hones acting skills

Within days of learning that Cindy Lou Hensley McCain has hired a Beverly Hills talent agency to arrange speaking engagements and book global events for her, she is featured as the first guest on a new NBC series, “Her Take with Cynthia McFadden.” The show carries the tagline, “some of the women are famous, many not, but all have a ‘take.’”

Of course, Cindy’s “take” is criticizing President Trump. Would anyone expect anything less? The McCain‘s have never gotten over the fact that Donald Trump was swept into office when McCain barely carried the state of Arizona by a mere 8 points as a failed 2008 presidential candidate. Republicans took McCain’s mother’s advice and held their noses as they voted for Johnny.

The Anheuser-Busch beer heiress has found a niche combating human trafficking. Mixing her metaphors, she asserts border walls don’t deter human trafficking in the United States. The actual reason for border security is to stop the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who intentionally breach our sovereign border, though she obviously missed that crucial aspect.

She also criticizes the lack of civility in public life, something she contributed to in raising her boorish daughter, Mega. (Not a typo.)

Cindy McCain is so bonded to exposing human trafficking, she reported a parent whose child was a different ethnicity to police at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport accusing the family of child trafficking. This bizarre action, for which she later apologized after initially lying about the circumstances, took place although she is the adoptive mother of Bridget, who was born in Bangladesh, and bears no resemblance to the former junior rodeo queen.

In the NBC interview, as Cindy laments the current lack of civility in Washington, she claimed it was something her husband detested. Her flawed recollection was of a man “who engaged in debates based on issues that could lead to bipartisan solutions,” which is a newly burnished image for the mean-spirited and crude John McCain whose vulgarity was publicly extended to her. He was best known for fighting Republicans at every turn as he teamed with Democrats on myriad issues and was more bonded to amnesty for illegals than he was to securing our nation’s border. This is a prime example (19-second video) of his sterling character as his single vote put the screws to the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare.

In the interview, Cindy McCain said “she still is a Republican,” though with a caveat: “I just don’t agree with many parts of my party right now.”  Many of “her party” never agreed with her Republicrat husband.

During the 2016 Trump/Clinton election, the McCain family let it be known they would not be supporting the Republican nominee. The other candidate was scandal-plagued and deceitful Hillary Clinton, described by McCain arock star.“


Fmr. Sen. Steve Pierce replaces perv Stringer

April 4, 2019

That’s obviously not our best headline, since no one with any degree of principle would be a replacement for disgraced child rapist, pedophile, and child porn aficionado David Stringer. Though Stringer maintained he served no time for his crimes, he accepted a plea deal, including five years probation on the charges. Stringer resigned March 27, when the hideous facts became irrefutable…and got even worse, as reported by the local newspaper.

Prescott rancher Steve Pierce, 69, has been selected by the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors to complete the House term. Pierce was previously a state senator from 2009-2017 and served as senate president from 2011-2012. He has indicated he will serve out the rest of the term, but will not run for election.

Make no mistake. Pierce is neither a fiscal nor social conservative. During his previous term, he was a supporter of expanding the Medicaid provisions of Obamacare, not a popular Republican position.

Former Arizona Secretary of State and senate president, Ken Bennett who challenged Doug Ducey as a Clean Elections candidate in 2018, would have been our preference. He adamantly opposed the expansion, saying, “Obamacare is the biggest job killer and destroyer of small business in history. And the entire U.S. has it because of Gov. Ducey and Sen. McCain.” His full quote is here.

In 2014, after supporting SB1062, known as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Steve Pierce described his action by saying, “I screwed up,” after getting heat from the LBGTQ community and the ACLU. Gov. Brewer also caved to the loudest voices and vetoed the bill that had mainstream support.

Fortunately we now have conservative leadership at the AZ GOP following the January election of Dr. Kelli Ward as state chairman and a reliable supporter of President Donald Trump.  Join the team.  Become a precinct committeeman.

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.)


Arrogant, irrelevant Jeff Flake craves Dem 2020 win

March 31, 2019

It takes an unparalleled level of conceit for a single term U.S. Senator —- unable to run for reelection due to 18-percent approval ratings in his home state —- to pompously bloviate about the President of the Untied States, and think he is influential.

But that’s exactly the pathetic behavior insignificant Jeff Flake, now a paid defector at a left-wing network, engages in to generate some publicity for himself. The latest is a rehash of his 2016 pre-election rhetoric, when he went anywhere a camera and mic were located to state Donald Trump couldn’t and shouldn’t be elected, and neither he nor his family would vote for him.  His disgraceful antics mirrored those of his mentor, John McCain.

Flake obviously isn’t keen on the best economy, highest employment and lower taxes Americans have enjoyed in decades, excellent judicial appointments —- two on the Supreme Court —- and historic inroads with Communist despots in China and North Korea. As an orchestrating member of McCain’s notorious Gang of Eight, his focus has long been on instituting destructive open border policies.

The appropriately named Flake would rather grouse, though cameras need to be trained on him when he engages in his anti-Trump barrages.

Appearing at a decidedly leftist Democrat forum billed as the “Intelligence Squared” debate in New York City, Flake said: “I think that four years is difficult enough — to unravel some of the damage that has been done internationally to our role, to our leadership position. We cannot — should not go another four years.”

“Yes … and this notion, this narrative that’s been built up, that Donald Trump is the only one that can cobble together the Electoral College and win is just a fallacy,” stated Flake —- a man keenly aware of his own inability to win reelection.

When the moderator asked, “Are you willing to lose a cycle for the Republican Party because of the principles that you’re arguing,” the Flakester unhesitatingly responded, “Oh, yes. Yes.”
