Jarrett Maupin sinks ever lower in quest to achieve notoriety

September 25, 2016

Some people aspire to heights thought to be beyond their reach. Undeterred, they work diligently to attain their ambitions. It’s inspiring to see the results of their efforts, achieved through a combination of unrelenting resolve, effort and determination. Observing such people achieve their goals, plants the seeds for success in others.

Then there’s Jarrett Maupin, a never-was and likely never-will-be. In his teens, he emulated the notorious Al Sharpton, even placing the word “Reverend” before his name though he attended no theological institution.  Sharpton, it will be remembered represented Tawana Brawley on false rape claims against four New York men including an assistant District Attorney and a police officer. The hoax was a major story in 1987 potentially ruining the lives of innocent men.

In November 2008, Maupin, then 21, was arrested for filing a false report. The previous year he ran against Mayor Phil Gordon but was bumped from the race after the County Clerk’s Office determined that nearly 185 of the nominating petition signatures needed to assure Maupin’s spot on the ballot were collected by convicted felons, invalidating them.

In retaliation, Maupin lied to Maricopa County Sheriff’s investigators and the FBI presenting them with a list of witnesses who had supposedly seen video evidence of Mayor Gordon committing sex crimes with a child. Five investigators were assigned to the case and spent eight months conducting an investigation,

But when detectives interviewed the so-called witnesses, all denied knowledge of any criminal activity by Gordon and any evidence that would support Maupin’s vicious and baseless allegations. According to this report in the local newspaper, Maupin faced 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $2,500, but got off easy with five years probation and 75 hours of community service.  Later in 2011, the contemptible Maupin served time in federal custody for violating the terms of his probation in the 2009 conviction, and was given 36 months of supervised probation upon release — another slap on the wrist.

Another example of Maupin’s race baiting tactics occurred in the 2013 Phoenix City Council race, where he used vicious racial slurs against a Democrat female candidate who had the temerity to run for a council seat though not black. She won despite his attacks.

These days Maupin, the self-declared, jobless “civil rights activist” is trying to capitalize on the aggressive behavior of the Black Lives Matter goons who are creating havoc in cities across the U.S. falsely alleging widespread institutionalized police brutality. In July he tied up rush hour traffic at 24th Street and Camelback. Police thwarted his threats to block Interstate 10 in Phoenix.

His latest gambit is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday, with protesters blocking the Mill Ave. Bridge in Tempe. He refers to this planned debacle as “Blockade on the Bridge: Moral Monday Action.”

It’s safe to say, Jarrett Maupin wouldn’t recognize moral actions if they sat on his now-shaved head. 


McCain morphs from fence builder to Spanish ad buys

September 23, 2016

Palpable desperation has McCain doing campaign turnaround, Cindy in begging mode

Trying to keep up with that slippery octogenarian John McCain requires more Geritol than most of us are willing to swallow — much like his shop-worn campaign promises that he conveniently forgets the day after the votes are tallied. Not only did he promise to “complete the danged fence  as he strolled the Arizona/Mexico border, but he clearly outlined why. Citing “drugs and human smuggling, home invasions, murder,” he said “of all the illegals in America more than half come through Arizona.” McCain concluded the ad by advocating for bringing “troops — state, county and local law enforcement together.” McCain’s “perfect plan” included “the National Guard and 3.000 new border control agents.” The word “control” is directly from his ad.

Notice McCain used the now verboten word “Illegals,” as he campaigned in 2010, promising to build the dang fence. Funny thing, but that was the last we heard of it. Immediately after election day, he and underling Jeff Flake played co-architects of the infamous Gang of 8, amnesty scheme, as they aligned with the most liberal Democrats in the U.S. Senate.

Now six years later, running for another six-year term, with the fence no longer a twinkle in his cataract filmed eyes, he’s seeking another constituency. Here’s McCain’s latest televised pitch, in Spanish, of course, titled “Por tu familia. Por tu comunidad. Por Arizona.”  (“For your family. For your community. For Arizona”) which we have translated for those doltish Americans who only speak English. You’ll notice comments are disabled for this YouTube video. It’s not difficult to imagine why.

Since McCain’s new constituency isn’t coughing up the cash, Cindy has resorted to email begging — in English, no less — on John’s behalf. Calling us “Friend,“ the Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship heiress pitches that  his campaign “MUST close out September with the strongest numbers possible. “In fact,” she tells us, “his campaign has set a goal of raising $225,000 by September 30th.” Cindy’s fortune was estimated to be in excess of $100 million nearly a decade ago. Bet’cha she could tap into those funds to help Johnny, and still have a bundle left over.

Cindy is desperate in her attempts to ensure John’s reelection, well aware as she is that his poll numbers are the worst in the countryShe knows she will never have another moment of peace…when Arizona voters say “Never McCain!


Is McCain pushing Lisa James for AZ GOP chair — again?

September 21, 2016

Rumor has it that one of the movers and shakers behind the shady effort to purge the Arizona Republican Party of conservative precinct committeeman is Lisa James, once again doing the bidding of John McCain. The 80-year-old U.S. Senator running for another 6-year term, is still enraged over being censured by elected State Committeemen and he wants them outta the political town by sundown — or at least not showing up at the state meeting in January for a repeat of the scathing rebuke.

The best insurance to keep the McEstablishment in control of the Arizona Republican Party is to rid it once and for all of the conservatives who understand all too well that total control, not dedicated party workers is what the McCain syndicate desires. McCain has used out-of-state Obama donors to help him in the purge. Current AZ GOP chairman Robert Graham is tied at the hip to McCain and McCain is tied to the disreputable George Soros who has funded his campaigns since 2001. Multi-billionaire Soros disdains national borders and with his ally McCain has pushed for a greater influx of illegals and unable to be vetted “refugees” into the U.S.

Prior to the Primary Election, where precinct committeemen are elected, ultra slick, full color, costly mailers, sent to registered Republicans urged them to vote for the “conservative, grassroots slate of Precinct Committeemen in our neighborhood.”

“Our neighborhood,” it turns out, is any neighborhood where conservatives are in abundance. The gimmick is to overfill the allotted slots with McRingers. The tagline is “Together, Let’s Build A Strong Republican Party!” The mailer also urges, “The candidates listed here represent a new generation of leadership and opportunity for Arizona Republicans and grassroots activists.”

This isn’t simply bologna. It’s gelatinous Spam in a can.

The required “paid for by” on the mailers lists Citizens for a Working America, a PAC sporting an oddly Socialist sounding moniker. Haven’t heard of it? Neither have most of us. Sunlight Foundation shines bright, antiseptic sun light on the Super PAC described as “flying under the radar.” 

We posted Precinct Committeemen: Have you been McPurged? a couple of weeks ago as PCs were made to wait for days to find out if they’d been kicked to the curb by McCain operatives. In the post we describe the shenanigans that have been engaged in by our so very busy U.S. Senators to oust dedicate party workers. This is not a new phenomenon. Former Sen. Jon Kyengaged in these underhanded tactics in 2012As we pointed out at that time, the precinct committeemen elections are crucial since it is the elected precinct committeemen who elect the intra-party leadership. Having conservatives in these posts hinders the efforts to have malleable stooges voted in to do the biding of the Republicrat honchos, who invariably push for amnesty immediately after they are reelected — though they campaign as committed agents of border security.

All of this signals that committed McCain supporter Lisa James is back for another bite at the AZ GOP chairmanship apple. She ran in 2007 and 2009, losing both times to business executive and CPA Randy Pullen. Pullen also served as the Arizona Republican National Committeeman, and Treasurer of the Republican National Committee.

This time around Jim O’Connor, Legislative District 23 Chairman is deserving of your support. Don’t let the practiced con artists con you.


State and Maricopa County 2016 GOP slate

September 18, 2016

You might have noticed, as we did, that the federal offices are omitted from this list. We’ve concluded that the congressional districts currently held by Republicans are considered safe and having an image of John McCain atop the GOP Slate would be a bridge too far for over 235,000 Arizonans who cast their ballots for his conservative challenger Dr. Kelli Ward in the U.S. Senate primary — as deep-pocketed Team McCain used raw deception to attack and marginalize her.

We encourage you to vote for this Republican slate in the state and Maricopa County General elections, as well as the conservative Republicans in your local legislative districts. (Find your district easily with this link.)

It matters.

Andy Biggs victorious in nail bitter AZ CD 5 race

September 18, 2016

If you’re ever tempted to think your single vote doesn’t matter, remember this 2016 5th Congressional District election, where former AZ Senate President Andy Biggs beat challenger Christine Jones by a mere 27 votes as the final votes were tabulated in the Republican primary election. Jones previously ran for Governor in 2004. Congressman Matt Salmon term limited himself, creating the vacancy.

Congratulations to conservative Biggs.


Yet another massive McCain miscalculation

September 16, 2016

Belligerent RINO John Kasich soliciting funds for McCain

Failed presidential candidate, John Kasich, who can’t support Donald Trump, our Republican nominee, but eagerly works with Barack Obama on making a final push for Obama’s Trans-Pacific Trade deal —  a massive and disreputable power grab. This deal gives Barack Obama irreversible authority since treaties supersede statutes under the U.S. Constitution.

Though Kasich is working feverishly to promote the outrageous scheme as a parting gift to Obama, he still manages to find time in his busy schedule to hustle money for John McCain.

In Kasich’s preposterous email solicitation, he uses the McCain salutation, “Friend,” and says a future without McCain in the U.S. Senate “is a future I do not want. If you agree with me,” Kasich implores, “then we MUST make certain John McCain remains fighting for our values and beliefs in the Senate.” 

“We will see increased taxes, additional government regulations, and more failed legislation like Obamacare,” Kasich writes.

Kasich’s own left leaning stance has given him a grossly mistaken perspective, hindering his ability to recall that all of those issues he warns about — and more have occurred under McCain’s decade’s long watch.

McCain is clearly not the answer. McCain, running for another 6-year term at age 80 has long been the problem as evident by his leftwing endorsements of candidates, Obama cabinet members and federal judges. This 2012 list includes Kyl, now replaced by the arrogant RINO Jeff Flake, who votes the same and also refuses to support the Republican presidential nominee.


Power through: Hillary’s apologists sing fight song in unison

September 14, 2016

Leftwing newscasters get identical infusions of pro-Hillary talking points

Step right up, folks!  The sideshow is about to begin!  Grab yer honey! Git yer popcorn! Watch the ‘Grand Collusion’ as fearful media liberals see their favored candidate lose power, engulfed in scandals, scapegoat friends, insult American voters, stumble, collapse, sweat, nosedive in the polls and cancel fundraisers!

Before your very eyes, you will see Hillary Clintonpower through even as she battles what she calls pneumonia — and what appears to be a serious neurological disease  — now forced to apologize for the insults she hurled at millions of American voters who support her opponent by calling them abasket of deplorables.”

This is a must see.  Watch the blood drain from the faces of the falsely jovial media elites as they confront the very real possibility of losing the White House to Republican Donald Trump, a reality which looms larger with each passing day.
