Warring, waffling Dems forced to face reality

October 16, 2019

Impeachment vote is off the table as members fear reprisals

Tuesday night‘s Democrat debate with 12 lackluster but combative candidates, was akin to watching an implosion. “The impeachment must go forward,” blasted Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, who is also on record aligning with Socialist Bernie Sanders’ ‘Medicare for All’ scheme, which would shift all Americans onto a single-payer health care plan — where choices will be limited and costs will skyrocket.

Flailing Robert Francis O’Rourke, clearly focusing on the Hispanic vote, referred to President Trump as promoting “racism and hatred” in “communities like mine.” O’Rourke, who calls himself “Beto,” is from Texas. He and Pete Buttigieg favor “buying back” guns they didn’t sell to you.

Andrew Yang, who along with O’Rourke, supports decriminalizing opioids, including heroin, had the memorable takeaway “its not your fault” line, stating, “Drug addiction is not a personal failing, it’s a systemic government failing.”

Two weeks after suffering a heart attack, Sanders, 78, cut off one of the debate’s moderators as she tried to ask him about his health. “I’m healthy, I’m feeling great,” he said.

Former VP Joe Biden was in deflection mode, dipping and dodging questions relating to his son, Hunter, who, minus any related experience, served as a paid board member for a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma Holdings, at a time when his father was shepherding U.S. policy there in the Obama administration, including advocating for increased gas production. Hunter was being paid the tidy sum of $50,000 a month. He left that lucrative position when the unseemly connection was revealed. He recently resigned as a director and part owner of a Chinese investment company, where he was reportedly paid $1.5 billion.

Kamala Harris took a novel approach on the opioid epidemic saying she’d support jailing executives at pharmaceutical and insurance companies, who she blames for fueling the crisis. “They are nothing more than some high-level dope dealers.” No word as to what penalties she would impose on prescribing doctors.

Democrats have been so caught up in the ecstasy of impeaching President Donald Trump that the reason is irrelevant.  Anything from China collusion, which had no factual basis, to fake Ukrainian messaging, suits their purposes.  President Trump has already seen two of his nominees advance to the U.S. Supreme Court.  With Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in ill health at age 86, the Dems worst fear will be realized if President Trump gets a third appointment. That’s what is driving their urgency to evict him from the presidency.

Walking a political tightrope, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday she will not hold a vote to officially launch an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

The decision came after House Democrats returned to D.C. following a two-week recess in their home districts. Their concern over a backlash is palpable, with 31 Democrats in districts where President Trump won in 2016 not wanting to move forward with an issue that could be their own undoing. Bluster and bravado ultimately collide with the real world.  The Arizona Republican Party’s Twitter account is a reliable source of information.

McPolitics as usual? Robert Graham eyes state legislature

October 14, 2019

Over a year and three funerals later, it was natural to assume we had heard the last of John McCain.

Nope.

Last week, the local Hillary-endorsing newspaper contained an insert with a smirking John McCain in full color gracing the cover page. It was headlined, “2nd shot for McCain vision,” describing an “ideas competition,” though sounding more like a threat than a promise. The failing newspaper still worships at the McCain altar, routinely covering him and his family.

Now we’re hearing that McCain sycophant Robert Graham, a former AZ GOP chairman, and the CEO of ROI Global Partners, a lobbying and public relations group promising “World Class Results,” is weighing the idea of running for a state House seat in Legislative District 15. Both House seats will be open due to the current members going head-to-head competing for the single senate seat. No doubt it will be a cakewalk for slickster McCain protégé Graham.

He has now reconfigured himself as a solid Trump supporter though he boycotted Trump’s initial Phoenix campaign rally that had to be moved twice to larger venues to accommodate the enormous crowd. Graham was conveniently “out of town.”  John McCain and Jeff Flake made no such excuses. They refused to support Donald Trump even as he was the Republican nominee. Both stated neither they nor their families would vote for Trump — who became president without them.

Was it a coincidence or gratitude that Robert Graham’s namesake son, Rob, was appointed to the U.S. Naval Academy by John McCain?


Louisiana’s governor’s race is one to watch & Update

October 9, 2019

Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019:

These are the unofficial election results from the Louisiana Secretary of State’s Office.

Not to make light of serious political races, but there are few states where the race for governor is more entertaining than in Louisiana. This year is no exception.

President Donald Trump is heading to the state to rally for both Republican candidates Eddie Rispone and Dr. Ralph Abraham. VP Mike Pence, in New Orleans recently, urged voters to unite in support of the “Republican cause.” The unusual strategy is to force a runoff aimed at keeping the current Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards, below 50% in Saturday’s election.

Edwards is the only Democrat governor in the deep South, which overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump in 2016. He won when former Gov. Bobby Jindal, a Republican, was term limited. Edwards is a hard-core leftist who was a delegate for Barack Obama — who twice lost Louisiana’s electoral votes, and supported scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. Edwards, who won with only 39.9%, benefited by having three GOP challengers splitting the vote. Louisiana is the only state that has sanctioned political chaos in what is known as a “jungle primary” system — where all candidates, regardless of party affiliation, appear on the same primary ballot.

Although one of the most expensive state elections ever, with over $50 million spent by candidates and outside interest groups, Edwards also could have been assisted, as one could only be in Louisiana, by carrying the magical name of Edwards. In 1991, when four-time, charismatic Democrat Gov. Edwin Edwards (no relation), who served prison time for racketeering, was running in opposition to former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, the bumper stickers appearing on cars all over the state carried the slogan, “Vote for the Crook. It’s important.” Edwin Edwards won.

In 2019, Republican gubernatorial candidates are three term Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D. and electrical contractor, Eddie Rispone, one of Louisiana’s wealthiest residents, who has benefited from hiring foreign workers over locals. Rispone is reported to have dropped over $12 million of his personal money into his campaign, flooding the market with TV ads. Conservatives should be supporting U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham M.D.

This is Dr. Ralph Abraham’s dynamic campaign ad:


AZ Sen. McSally challenged by egotistical millennials

October 7, 2019

Daniel McCarthy, Blake Masters aid Democrats

It would be the height of understatement to say the last thing Arizona Republicans desire are two Democrats representing the state in the U.S. Senate. Conservatives cringe at the thought.

Yet some senior activists, who should know better, are falling in line behind an untested 34-year-old, lacking even the slimmest credentials. SRAZ has previously written about lightweight Daniel McCarthy. Review those posts at the conclusion of this one.

McCarthy and his even younger doppelganger Blake Masters, 33, — now considering entering the race — each describe themselves as “entrepreneurs.” Both have young families that would presumably benefit from a father living closer than 2,000 miles away in D.C. What they are lacking in political experience, they make up for in the brash overconfidence that comes from an era when excellent is no longer prized, as educrats give participation awards in both academics and sports for just showing up, to eliminate injured feelings.

Their foolish shortsightedness is a gift to the Dems. Soros-backed candidate, Mark “Mr. Gabby Giffords” Kelly, a classic leftist, seeks to gut our constitutionally enshrined Second Amendment rights, and has already raised record amounts of money, as evidenced by this FEC report. It should come as no surprised that some of Republicrat John McCain’s (19-second video) donors have reportedly flipped to radical Mark Kelly.

Both aspirants blame Martha McSally for losing to Democrat metamorphic changeling Kyrsten Sinema and then being appointed to fill a vacant senate seat previously held by McCain, and temporarily by former Sen. Jon Kyl. Abraham Lincoln, who lost several elections, would not have engendered support from these rigid political novices, who believe losing makes you a loser. What they fail to acknowledge is Sen. McSally is a former two-term Arizona congresswoman. Prior to serving in Congress, the Air Force Academy graduate who attained the rank of colonel, was the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat and first to command a fighter squadron in combat in United States history. Most importantly, she has won the “total and complete endorsement” of President Trump…whom both challengers and their hangers-on claim to support. Declared challenger McCarthy has a high school diploma and a successful wife who invented a makeup removal product. Displaying his political ignorance, he has boasted about his ability to self-fund his campaign.

 

Vice President Mike Pence, on his third trip to Arizona this year, escorted Sen. McSally to two Arizona fundraisers and other events last week.

Jeff Flake morphs into rabid Trump-hating preacher

October 1, 2019

Religion of the absurd with a flaky fraud in the pulpit

Jeff Flake, whose political career crashed and burned on the pyre of his visceral Trump hatred, is now urging other congressional Republicans to abandon President Trump. Flake’s latest egocentric tantrum includes a haughty morality spin telling elected Republicans they have a moral obligation to put their principles first — even if it means risking their careers. Flake is unable to accept the fact that the president enjoys a broad base of support.

Taking his sore-loser message to the extreme leftist Washington Post (subscription required), he was, of course, given op-ed space. Flaunting a Republican, even a fraudulent one unable to draw a crowd, exudes a sophisticated panache:

 “My fellow Republicans, it is time to risk your careers in favor of your principles. Whether you believe the president deserves impeachment, you know he does not deserve reelection,” wrote Flake. “Our country will have more presidents. But principles, well, we get just one crack at those. For those who want to put America first, it is critically important at this moment in the life of our country that we all, here and now, do just that.”

“Trust me when I say that you can go elsewhere for a job. But you cannot go elsewhere for a soul.”

Narcissist Flake shown here in 2011, retired after a single senate term when he embarrassingly garnered a mere 18% approval rating in his home state. Even his relatives in the town of Snowflake, where he was born and raised, and named in part for a paternal ancestor, are identified as saying, Flake’s name is mud.” The scheming Flake who earlier in his career lobbied as a registered foreign agent in D.C. on behalf of an African uranium mining company with ties to Iran, was hired by CBS as a “contributor” in January.

Flake’s so-called principles have always been to the almighty dollar, peddling uranium and keeping the border open for his contractor cronies, desirous of cheap labor. He’s been rewarded with a well-paid seat as a board member by Arizona home builder Taylor Morrison, whose Chairman and CEO Sheryl Palmer, lavished praise on the noted word thief.

In 2016 Flake and his mentor John McCain both publicly stated neither they nor their families would vote for Donald Trump. President Trump obviously didn’t need them then. He won’t need Flake in 2020.


Pres. Trump keeps loyal base, despite Dem assault 

September 28, 2019

Rasmussen Reports Friday survey of likely voters holds good news for President Donald Trump and his legions of supporters. The mélange of data is headlined, Voters See Trump’s Reelection Far More Likely Than Impeachment.

Although the pollsters concluded, “Voters think President Trump has more to lose in the growing Ukraine controversy than leading Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden, they still see Trump’s reelection as a surer shot than impeachment.”

Seeing Red AZ attributes those views to the lack of mainstream media coverage of the nefarious and extraordinarily lucrative China and Ukrainian dealings surrounding Hunter Biden and gaffe-prone, deceptive, increasingly unhealthy and unable to keep his dentures in his mouth Papa Joe who paved his unqualified son’s way for a $1.5 Billion private equity deal with the Bank of China that remains unprecedented in the investment world. The “B” is not a typo.

Breitbarts Joshua Caplan exposes the China deal. The same news agency’s Robert Kraychik reveals the muzzle the Washington Post and its leftist news cohorts have placed on any reports of the China and Ukraine scandals involving Hunter Biden. Suppression of news is how the leftist media dominate their readers. Knowledge is power and mental manipulation must exist in a vacuum.

Conservatives have a lot to digest, but we understand the underhanded dealings because we are not spoon fed political pap and robotically fall in line on election day. Rising against the leftist tide, we voted to “Make America Great Again.” In 2022 we’ll be voting to “Keep America Great.”

AZ GOP Chair Dr. Kelli Ward provides important information in the 2019 Precinct Committeeman Handbook.

Get involved. Become a Precinct Committeeman. President Trump can’t do it alone. He needs us as much as we need him.


Dems launch Trump impeachment: Repercussions will follow

September 25, 2019

After resisting ongoing impeachment calls from her fellow Dems, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has acquiesced and on Tuesday authorized an inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Pelosi who will turn 80 on her next birthday, has been around the political block for decades, currently in her 17th term, and realizes the risks involved with attempting to take down the popular president.

House Republicans impeached Bill Clinton in 1998, charging him with perjury to a grand jury (by a 228–206 vote) and obstruction of justice (by a 221–212 vote). It did not result in removal from office.

The Senate is firmly controlled by Republicans, holding a 53-to-47 seat advantage. The U.S. Constitution requires a two-thirds majority of the Senate to vote to convict and expel a president who has been impeached by the House. The chances of garnering enough Republican votes is an implausible long shot.

Clinton’s impeachment provided momentary exhilaration that ended with a harsh reality for Republicans, as Democrats gained seats in the midterm election held as the impeachment was fomenting. Impeachment lacks traction among mainstream Americans, who view it as partisanship run amok.

According to today’s Rasmussen Reports Daily Presidential Tracking Poll, 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance, including 35% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing.

An earlier Quinnipiac University poll showed 61% of voters surveyed stated Congress should not begin the impeachment process against President Donald Trump.

The voice of America was loud and clear (video) stunning newscasters as the 2016 Presidential Election results were tabulated.

Impeachment actions will not bode well for the Democrats.
