Magical McCain: Knows the past, foretells the future & Update

Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore too conservative for GOP establishment elites who try to take him down

Sex abuse has become the issue of the day. After initial complaints surfaced, emboldening others, allegations about media mogul Harvey Weinstein reached epic proportions. As per the latest script, he checked himself into rehab. We’d already seen this explosive scenario with Bill Cosby as women came forth with their stories. Then came the even more difficult exposés as young boys channeled into the entertainment industry began revealing the abuse by movie celebrities who preferred them to the glamorous females who surrounded them.

Syracuse.com provides a seemingly endless list of Hollywood celebs who have had allegations made against them.

Now it gets political. Roy Moore, a former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, recently won a hotly contested GOP senate primary runoff election in that state, to succeed Jeff Sessions who is now serving as U.S. Attorney General in the Trump administration.  Appointed Senator Luther Strange lost despite being backed with millions of dollars in support from a Senate PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“The attempt by the silk-stocking Washington elitists to control the vote of the people of Alabama has failed,” Moore declared on election night.

Maybe. Maybe not. They play hardball and don’t like to lose.

The establishment was none too happy with the election outcome. What better way to take down this strong Christian conservative, who was a Captain in Vietnam after graduating from West Point, and prior to attending law school, than to allege sexual misconduct? It’s the rage.

 The interestingly timed bombshell accusations come from Leigh Corfman, a three-time divorcee so deeply in debt she’s filed for bankruptcy protection on several occasions.  She now claims Moore engaged in “sexual misconduct” with her 38 years ago when she was 14 and Moore was 32. According to her account, there was no actual sexual contact. As a troubled teen from a broken home, she reportedly used drugs and attempted suicide.

But who does John McCain believe? McCain, the self-appointed judge and jury says, “The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying. He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they are proud of.”

Our bet is the starkly politically motivated accusations will energize Roy Moore’s supporters.

Surprise!! It turns out Debbie Gibson, one of Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore’s accusers is a dedicated Democrat activist who has worked for the DNC as a sign language interpreter for Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden. This disclosure was mysteriously missing from the Washington Post’s original report which was heavy with finger-pointing and light on substantiated facts. Gibson worked for Roy Moore’s Democrat opponent, Doug Jones, prior to the accusations becoming public.

Race baiting Dem Ralph Northam elected VA Governor

November 7, 2017

We’ve all seen the despicable campaign ad depicting a driver in his pickup truck, flying a confederate flag, with a ‘Gillespie for Governor‘bumper sticker on the back. The truck sports a ‘Don’t tread on Me” license plate as it careens down a roadway, appearing to try to mow down minority children.

In a race that was neck-in-neck as the returns first came in, Ed Northam, an ally of Barack Obama, pulled ahead in the Northern Virginia outskirts of Washington, DC. after shamelessly linking Gillespie with white supremacists. The final unofficial results are Northam 53% to Gillespie’s 45%.

Titled “American Nightmare,” the ad, released by the left-wing group Latino Victory Fund has been airing through Election Day on Spanish-language stations in key Democrat strongholds.

Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder’s group the National Democratic Redistricting Committee has pumped over a $1 million into the Virginia governor’s race to ensure Democrat’s redistricting efforts in advance of the 2020 Census.

Let’s hope Republicans are paying rock solid attention and are engaged in more worthwhile pursuits than fighting President Trump, as Arizona’s pathetic excuses for U.S. Senators are doing.


Weekly Standard gives cover to Jeff Flake — literally & figuratively

November 5, 2017

In recent years, magazines have had a tough time, with many of them folding. News magazines are especially hard hit since the latest information is readily available in your pocket. Digital delivery has dramatically altered the dissemination of news. This fact is woefully evident in the October 30, 2017 issue of The Weekly Standard. Given the time consuming nature of writing, printing and mailing, the latest issue is filled with old news by the time it reaches the mailbox. We’re talking postal delivery, not email.

Case in point is the Weekly Standard cover story titled, “Is there room for Jeff Flake in Donald Trump’s GOP?”

Senior writer John McCormack is obviously a Flake fan, which means he’s likely an eastern liberal. If he had his finger more firmly on the pulse of Arizona conservatives, his article would have been less fawning and more factual. But then again, preceding the 2016 election, he authored a report, “How Trump can be stopped.” He was wrong then, and he’s wrong now. Donald Trump was victorious over 16 other GOP primary candidates, vanquished scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton, and now sits in the Oval Office.

The current article could have been written last year, since it missed Jeff Flake’s showboating senate speech opting out of his reelection bid. He tried to configure his decision based on not being able to be “complicit” with President Trump, when in fact he was trailing family practice physician and former two term state senator Dr. Kelli Ward, a principled conservative, by hefty double digits in recent polls.

The author gives Flake undeserved kudos for “cutting pork,” which was Flake’s initial theme to get elected. How does this square with Flake’s ongoing amnesty for illegals bent? According to this Fox News report the estimated yearly financial burden to American citizens is $135 billion.

McCormack‘s screed is filled with errors. We’ll stick with the most glaringly twisted. In describing Flake’s initial senate run in 2012,  he plays fast and loose with the facts, using these well-chosen words:  “Five short years ago, Flake cruised to victory in his first GOP Senate primary with nearly 70 percent of the vote.” What McCormack fails to relate is that Flake won the General Election by a razor-thin 3 points over George W. Bush’s former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona a registered Independent until he ran for retiring Jon Kyl’s open seat as a newly minted Democrat. Carmona’s background is compelling. Rising from a high school dropout raised on the tough streets of NYC’s Harlem, to a stint in the Army, where he earned his GED. He later became a police officer, a nurse and finally a surgeon and professor of medicine at the University of Arizona.  Along the way Carmona earned a Masters and PhD. He received the Purple Heart in recognition of  his combat actions in Vietnam.

And Jeff Flake? Aside from a career feeding at the public trough, he served a short time as director of the libertarian, not conservative, Goldwater Institute. Prior to his overly long political career — he reneged on his pledge to serve 3 two-year terms — Flake worked as a lobbyist and registered foreign agent for Rossing Uranium, one of the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel,  operating mines in the African country of Namibia. Flake earned a substantial salary opening doors in D.C. and promoting the firm which had deep financial ties to Iran.

Though McCormack mentions others who are considering entering the senate race, he neglects to reveal they are all tied to John McCain, the self-declared “maverick” who arrogantly ran for a sixth, six-year senate term at age 81. Now suffering from what his Mayo doctors refer to as an aggressive form of brain cancer, he continues to sick his finger in President Trump’s eye. In so doing, he insults the rest of us who voted for the man who is working to keep his campaign promises, despite as much opposition from Republicrat contrarians as from the liberals who don’t want Trump to succeed.


Irrelevant McCain and Flake consume AZ Republic

October 30, 2017

Absurdity comes on fleet foot from local newspaper

 The Arizona Republic is suffering. The throes of despair are more evident with each passing day.  And the cause of this anguish? Two irrelevant Republicrat senators: John McCain and Jeff Flake.

Dan Nowicki, the senator’s assigned sycophantic reporter is so distraught at the thought of their imminent departures, he’s been reduced to writing gibberish — aided by columnists— sappy Laurie Roberts and toothless pit bull E.J. Montini. It‘s a pitiful sight to behold as his job security hinged on two political contrarians, slips beyond his grasp.

 As an example of Nowicki’s predicament, Sunday’s front page carried the headline, “Mavericks Unleashed,” which concludes that now freed from pre-election fundraising and the pressure to sound rational, lame duck Flake and his seriously ill mentor McCain are unconstrained in spewing their ire at President Trump.  A literal translation of the scenario is the duo no longer has to lie in order to soothe the ire of the irate conservative base within the Arizona Republican Party. Flake, who realized he was in a losing battle against principled conservative challenger Dr. Kelli Ward, opted out of his 2018 reelection to avoid a humiliating defeat, not due to his non-complicity with President Trump. This is all facile fakery to allow him to leave on a higher note than being unceremoniously kicked to the curb.

These are the hard facts: Flake has never been popular, winning the open senate seat in 2012 by just 3 points, despite diligent efforts by retiring Sen. Jon Kyl and John McCain. Trump carried Arizona by nearly 20 points in the 2016 GOP presidential primary. In the General Election Trump captured all 11 electoral votes.

 The same edition of the beleaguered newspaper runs what is likely a first, as editorials go. Attributed to the entire editorial board, (do they take turns writing sentences? Is Tucson resident Linda Valdez hooked up via a conference call?)  it is two pages in length, topped with an oversize full color photo of the new hero of the left, Jeff Flake, absurdly titled, “In Flake’s speech, a flash of hope.”  That was after Flake referred to himself as “a globalist,” cast in the image of billionaire Socialist George Soros.

In a fit of pomposity while editorially standing in for Flake, the Republic calls on Americans, not only Arizonans, to reject the President of the United States, but also to reject what they refer to as “Trump making the offensive seem commonplace.”

This is the same Hillary Clinton endorsing newspaper that uses Cronkite students who write news reports that foolishly resemble Snoopy’s “it was a dark and stormy night novellas. The same newspaper that headlines news reports with the slippery words, “May,” “Could,” and “Might” exemplified by this Page One article titled, “Money for kid’s health care may run out in weeks.” That money also may not run out — making the report pointless. Slippery, non-definitive words and editorials passing as news have become the Arizona Republics stock in trade. 

Can those in charge of disgorging bile and fake news actually harbor realistic expectations that they sway any votes?  When elections roll around, fewer of the newspaper’s endorsed candidates win.  Scandal-plagued Hillary is an outstanding example as the Republic, referring to itself as “conservative,” opined, “Her flaws pale in comparison“ to Trump‘s.

An Arizona Republic endorsement has become the kiss of death principled candidates run from. 


Tainting Trump with Russian collusion traced to Hillary, DNC, McCain

October 26, 2017

John McCain hand-carried dossier to FBI intending to destroy Trump

 It must be excruciatingly painful for the liberal Washington Post, long considered an arm of the Democrat Party, to have to report the facts about the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee collusion in paying for false allegations against Donald Trump while repeatedly linking his campaign to Russian spies. It was all bogus, as he has been saying for well over a year.

What is contained in the Washington Post’s revealing report rivals any John le Carré spy fiction. The difference is, the Democrats and their operatives are willing to sacrifice the well-being of the United States and our election process in order to not only win, but also permanently disable any political challenger who keeps his promises and believes in the greatness of America.

The WaPo’s must read article is titled, “Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier.”

And that dossier filled with contrived smut? it was none other than Trump-hating John McCain, consumed with jealous rage that Donald Trump sits in the Oval Office and he never will, who hand-carried the bogus documents to then-FBI director James Comey.

The same Director Comey who casually cleared Hillary Clinton of all charges pending against her.

In Jeff Flake’s recent declaration that he won’t seek reelection, he places the blame at the feet of President Trump — not his own abysmal 18% approval rating —saying he “won’t be complicit,” with the current path of the Republican Party.

Today’s  Arizona Republic editorial, written by Elvia Diaz, the heiress apparent to aging left-winger Linda Valdez, refers to those who support the senate candidacy of Dr. Kelli Ward, as “her ilk.”

The words are obviously not intended as a compliment to conservatives, but we’ll gladly take them. Who would want to be called a Democrat in today’s world?

Emmy award winning investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson reveals the truth about baseless Democrat claims of “treasonous Russian collusion” repeatedly lodged against President Trump.


Flake left the senate because he can’t abide the GOP

October 25, 2017

This morning’s issue of the Arizona Republic is a multi-page paean to the man we have often characterized as Jeff the Flake. The Hillary Clinton endorsing newspaper heralds him on the front page with an oversize  photo and overlayed with his quote, “I will not be complicit.” The jump pages include his speech and a dose of fawning by his mentor John McCain. There is no denying the hard fact that throughout his career Flake has shown himself to be “complicit” —- with Democrats and against conservative positions.

The personification of sanctimonious arrogance, the always preening Jeff Flake has been an utter disappointment to Arizona Republicans. He held closed door or invitation only town halls because Arizonans overwhelmingly wanted to see a border wall built while he was acting in concert with John McCain, two other RINOs and a gaggle of the most liberal senate Democrats on the “Gang of 8”amnesty bill. Few have forgotten his 2016 effort to pass “bipartisan” gun control legislation, his collusion with Barack Obama over a nuclear deal with the terror-sponsoring, American-hating rogue nation of  Iran, or the implementation of his long held desire to lift the U.S. embargo on travel to Communist Cuba — another deal made with his buddy Obama.

Then there was  the shocking spectacle of Jeff Flake taking Barack Obama’s lame duck Supreme Court nominee Democrat Merrick Garland through the halls of the senate in an attempt to garner votes for him. With the election of President Trump,  conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch was appointed to the high court to fill the seat previously held by Justice Antonin Scalia.

There have been numerous other betrayals and glib attempts at trickery, all with his ever present smirk plastered on his face. He belittled GOP nominee  Donald Trump who won the Republican nomination over 16 other primary candidates, declaring, “He can’t and shouldn’t win,” while loudly and repeatedly proclaiming his refused to vote for Trump — putting him squarely in scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton‘s column. He must have choked on his own sputum on Dec. 8, 2016 when the results came in showing Trump was elected President.

Flake’s decision to leave the U.S. Senate is based in the  knowledge he is out of step with Arizona’s voters and  couldn’t win in 2018. 

Fortunately, conservatives have an excellent candidate in Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician, military wife, and former two-term state senator who spent 4 years burnishing her conservative credentials in the Arizona legislature. She also supports the President of the United States.


Flake’s a loser: Time to diminish conservative Ward

October 23, 2017

Fish wrap back to trying to slay conservative candidates

The Arizona Republic is in the throes of political agony. Its two venerated RINOcrat senators are in trouble. “Thumbs down” McCain, 81, who deliberately sabotaged President Trump’s efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, is seriously ill. Jeff Flake is reaping what he has sown in denigrating President Trump, and is failing in the polls.

Flake, running for a second 6-year senate term in 2018, is struggling to  keep his head above water. Writing an ill-timed, anti-Trump booklet has not endeared him to Republicans in a state that gave Trump all 11 of its electoral votes.

 Enter Dan Nowicki, McCain’s sycophantic reporter employed by the Hillary-endorsing  newspaper.  Rather than reporting accurately about  conservative challenger Dr. Kelli Ward, who just this past week had a thunderous campaign kickoff featuring conservative icon Laura Ingraham and executive chairman of Breitbart News, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

Nowicki compares Ward, a family practice physician and two-term state senator, to two women he identifies as “tea party” candidates from Nevada and Delaware, both  of whom won their 2010 primaries only to lose in the general election.  He gets a pass from the left-of-center newspaper which would be the first to call this sexist coverage if the topic was Democrat women.

This iffy language, lacking specifics, is typical of the style Nowicki employs to make his foolish point regarding Dr. Ward:

Many Republicans consider her a weak candidate.”

Some political observers say she could help deliver the senate seat to the Democrats in the general election.”

He repeats the fallacious McCain hype calling her “Chemtrail Kelli” for responding to a question at a candidate forum during her challenge to McCain. Nowicki batters Ward for her commitment to building a wall along our southern border, conveniently overlooking the fact that John McCain and Jeff Flake, both court globalist, billionaire George Soros — a committed Socialist —-  and  open borders proponent — except when McCain and Flake are candidates.

Following Nowicki’s Sunday article, the Republic’s columnist Laurie Roberts jumped in today, with a heading, “Kelli Ward’s run is Democrats’ dream come true.” Echo queen Roberts reaches into the newspaper’s reliable reiteration barrel to absurdly link Dr. Ward to “chemtrials,” and those considered unsavory enough to sully Ward.  But Roberts tosses what she hopes is credibility by going to defamed political operative Nathan Sproul for substantiation of her anti-Ward thesis.

Describing Dr. Kelli Ward’s 2016 loss to John McCain, Nowicki fails to note that McCain outspent her 10 to 1, and brazenly lied about her.  As is his modus operandi McCain has a third candidate enter the race  to split the vote, ensuring  his victory. 

Jeff Flake has been at the public trough for the majority of his adult life, except for a stint as a lobbyist and  registered foreign agent in the African nation of Namibia, where he worked for Rossing Uranium — one of the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel. Flake earned a substantial salary opening doors in D.C. and promoting the firm which had deep financial ties to Iran.

Take time to read about Dr. Kelli Ward and review her principled positions on the issues facing Arizonans and all Americans. Donate what you can. This is a crucial race and she isn’t sitting atop a pile of lobbyist money as Flake is.
