Hillary morphs into Obama demeaning Trump supporters

September 10, 2016

This time we’re characterized as frightened white supremacists — no mention of our need for guns and bibles

What does Hillary Clinton  really think of Trump supporters?  According to this Bloomberg report, the answer obviously is not muchSince conservatives will never march in lockstep with the left, Clinton recklessly views us as “a basket of deplorables” made up of “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic….you name it” people.

Clinton was speaking at an LGBT fundraiser in New York City Friday evening, where she encouraged supporters to “stage an intervention” if they have friends considering voting for Donald Trump.

Tickets for the gala, which focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender supporters, ranged from $1,200 for a standard seat to $250,000 or more to be listed as a host. The fundraiser drew a sold-out crowd of 1,000. Barbra Streisand, a favorite of drag queen performers, provided the entertainment — including a sarcastic rendition of “Send in the Clowns” aimed at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

After receiving blow back for Hillary’s outrageous comments, the Clinton campaign attempted to clarify her “basket of deplorables” remark, saying she was referring to people who actively back Trump, such as donors, endorsers and people at his rallies, not everyone who plans to vote for the Republican businessman.

The feeble attempt to separate average Trump voters from what Hillary and her advisers view as those who align themselves with the white nationalist “alt-right” movement they claim “appears to make up half of his crowd when you observe the tone of his events,”Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said on Twitter.

This hateful new tone, an obvious attempt to deflect from her myriad scandals and questions regarding her health, is a far cry from Hillary‘s 2008 retort when running against Barack Obama. At the time she said, “I was taken aback by the demeaning remarks Sen. Obama made about people in small-town America. His remarks are elitist and out of touch.”

Referring to working-class voters in industrial towns decimated by job losses, Obama described them with these words: “They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

It doesn’t matter which Democrat elitist utters the words, the raw contempt they exhibit for thinking American voters couldn’t be clearer. We are either pathetically clinging to our guns or bibles, or we are vicious hate mongers.

Arizona Republic headlines prove newspaper’s a joke

September 8, 2016

Headline: Poll suggests many voters dislike Arpaio

A poll can “suggest” the moon is made of bleu cheese. The fact remains Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio maintains immense levels of popularity, as evidenced by his definitive Aug. 30 victory over his primary opponent, Dan Saban.  Joe Arpaio hammered Saban 65.40% to 26.88%. In raw numbers, Republican Arpaio carried 226, 640 votes to party-switching Saban’s 93,136. Two lesser candidates shared 7+% between them. In the General Election, problem-plagued Democrat Paul Penzone is back for anther insignificant nibble at the sheriff’s ankles. But Penzone’s unopposed primary exposed him as falling far short of the mark as Arpaio outpaced him by nearly 50,000 votes, despite three challengers.

Headline: Flake: “I’ll speak out until Trump changes tone.”

Arizona’s arrogant amnesty-bent junior senator Jeff Flake has been busying himself making the rounds of Sunday morning interview shows denouncing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Flake‘s making a pathetic spectacle of himself and engendering massive pushback from his fellow Republicans, who are embarrassed by his showboating obstinacy. After reneging on his own pledge to term limit himself while in the U.S. House, smirking as he blatantly admitted, “I lied,” he ran for the Senate and won by a mere 3 percentage points —- even with Sens. McCain and Kyl going the max to shoehorn him into Kyl’s seat. If the aptly named Flake thinks Trump will transform his campaign to conform to his whims, Flake must be smoking something that’s still illegal in Arizona.  Flake appears to have forgotten that Donald Trump won the GOP nomination over 16 other candidates.

These selections are just two of a multitude of such farcical headlines, which provide clear evidence of the radically leftward stance of the Arizona Republic, attempting to be calculatingly deceptive, though missing the mark by a mile — and insulting its ever dwindling readership in the process.

Precinct Committeemen: Have you been McPurged?

September 7, 2016

Wednesday evening: The PC numbers in challenged districts are finally posted. Click on link in the first paragraph and you‘ll get a free ride.

According to reports, today is the day the results for the precinct committeeman races will finally be available and posted at the Maricopa County Recorder‘s website.  Given that election day was over a week ago and early ballots were being tabulated over the past month, the excessive wait makes little sense. 

As we noted previously, these races take on greater significance given the high level, behind the scenes machinations to remove elected conservatives— many longtime PCs — from within the precincts. The unpaid, grassroots workers of the Republican Party are once again having an elbow thrust in their gut, as the GOPe (establishment) is working with Team McCain to oust McCain disloyalists — real or imagined — from the party ranks. Concerted efforts include purposely overfilling the allotted number of committeemen allowed in each precinct and then either mailing out or hand delivering cards to households listing names comprising a “conservative slate.”  The maneuver is intended to aid the establishment by knocking actual conservatives off the roster. The fact that these are loyal Republican workers is of no consequence when it comes to the down in the weeds, devious schemes few would expect busy U.S. Senators to engage in.

This is not a new phenomenon. Former Sen. Jon Kyl engaged 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.

Following McCain’s censure by elected state committeemen at the 2014 annual Statutory Meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party, he undertook a mission to replace conservatives. His deceptive trickery with out-of-state Obama donors made the national news. Read about his tyrannical tactics in Front Page magBreitbart, and POLITICO.

McCain’s retaliatory actions against conservatives went even further, as he and liberal Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich) urged IRS’s Lois Lerner’s involvement in a scheme to target conservatives for additional scrutiny from the tax agency.

For memory refreshers, this was Kyl’s deceptive campaign ad before the votes were tabulated and he joined McCain in another amnesty deception. Here is McCain’s infamous border walk ad, where he urged building the danged fence. Jeff Flake also lied as he conveniently tacked right on the border in a tight race. The open border newspaper went ballistic, calling his change of heart on legalizing millions of illegal aliens “jarring.” He bore the newspaper’s wrath by being called a “politician” no longer a “statesman.’

The editorial board needn’t have worried.  He reverted to his amnesty stance the very next day as he colluded with his mentor McCain and formed the disreputable Gang of Eight with liberal senators Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin and others.

Check here later today to see if you’ve been McPurged. No specific time was given for the release of the vote totals.

Phyllis Schlafly used her waning time well — recently exposed Jeff Flake

September 6, 2016

Conservative icon, Phyllis Schlafly, died Monday at age 92. Hers was a life well lived — as a wife,  mother of six, lawyer, author, syndicated columnist, conservative activist, lecturer and founder of the influential Eagle Forum. In one of her final columns, Schlafly wrote in support of Donald Trump, whom she had endorsed, and exposed Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) as a disreputable globalist. We have reprinted that July 13, 2016 column in its entirely. This brilliant and courageous woman will be missed.

Trump Battles Globalist Republicans

Before heading to Cleveland to accept the Republican nomination for president, Donald Trump paid a high-profile visit to Capitol Hill, where he hoped to unify Congressional Republicans behind his presidential campaign. Many of the 247 Republican Representatives and 54 Senators were cordial to their party’s presumptive nominee, but others remained hostile and weren’t shy about expressing it to reporters after leaving the closed-door meetings.

One Congressman reportedly demanded that Trump promise to protect Congress’ Article I powers if he is elected. Trump tactfully refrained from pointing out how many times the Republican Congress has unilaterally surrendered its Article I powers, including the power “to regulate commerce with foreign nations.”

Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona openly mocked Trump at the meeting and then bragged to reporters about their “tense” exchange. Flake, an unrepentant member of the Gang of Eight that produced the 2013 amnesty bill, has already announced plans to resurrect that discredited bill next year no matter who is elected president.

Trump’s next stop was a private meeting with Senator Ted Cruz, who inappropriately brought his campaign manager Jeff Roe to the meeting. Two months after suspending his campaign, why does Cruz still utilize a high-priced campaign manager to join high-level discussions with the presumptive nominee?

The answer is that Cruz never stopped running for president, and the people who spent $158 million — more than twice what Trump spent — to back Cruz in 2016 are not going away. Cruz recently set up two new nonprofit organizations to keep his key people employed, prematurely launching another run for president in 2020.

Cruz’s delays in endorsing Trump and his disloyal preparations to run for president in 2020 help only one person: Hillary Clinton, which is what some Republican mega-donors actually prefer, because they are globalists who oppose Trump’s stances against immigration and free trade.

The globalists will never accept Trump or anyone else who puts Americans first, and they are using Cruz to undermine Trump’s campaign. Cruz’s mega-donors think they can buy their way to control of the Republican Party even if Trump wins the presidency this year, and they are already funding the takeover of several conservative organizations.

These globalist money-men are also hostile to our Constitution, which they want to rewrite in a new constitutional convention, also called “Convention of States.” Eric O’Keefe, who has close ties to the billionaire Koch brothers, backs the Never Trump movement and is a board member of the Convention of States project.

Justice Scalia in May 2015 called this attempt for a new constitutional convention a “horrible idea,” but several of its cheerleaders were able to get on the Republican platform committee that is meeting this week. Cruz has praised the delusional proposal to add many amendments to the Constitution, and some of his donors are part of the same group that seeks to alter our Constitution.

Cruz earned support by many conservatives when he first came to D.C. four years ago. It is long overdue for Cruz to repudiate the support of these globalists who are working against Trump and against our national sovereignty.

“We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism,” Trump promised in his April 27 foreign policy speech in Washington. That sentiment is anathema to the globalists who provide much of the money for Republican candidates.

“I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down,” Trump continued. “Under my administration, we will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs. Americans must know that we’re putting the American people first again.”

When Trump vows to “put Americans first” the globalists complain about “protectionism,” as if there’s something wrong with expecting our own government to protect American jobs and America’s economic interests.

“On trade, on immigration, on foreign policy, the jobs, incomes and security of the American worker will always be my first priority,” Trump said. “Both our friends and our enemies put their countries above ours, and we – while being fair to them – must start doing the same.”

In a June 22 speech in New York, Trump intensified his attack on the globalist money interests: “We’ll never be able to fix a rigged system by counting on the same people who have rigged it in the first place. The insiders wrote the rules of the game to keep themselves in power and in the money.”

“It’s not just the political system that’s rigged, it’s the whole economy,” Trump continued. “It’s rigged by big donors who want to keep wages down. It’s rigged by big businesses who want to leave our country, fire our workers, and sell their products back into the United States with absolutely no consequences for them.”

We’ve waited a long time for a Republican candidate to express these pro-American views, but Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential primaries proves they are what the voters want to hear.

Editor’s note: Phyllis Schlafly’s words were proven even truer on Sunday, when the arrogant Republicrat Jeff Flake gave this contemptible interview during an appearance on “Face the Nation.”

Jeff Flake: AZ’s aptly named senator endorses Hillary

September 5, 2016

Republicans should commit rogue Flake’s words to memory: “I don’t expect that I will be able to support him [Trump] in November….I just don’t see how I can.”

Republicrat Jeff Flake appeared on CBS News’ “Face the Nation (video) with host John Dickerson Sunday morning — slamming Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Then slamming him again.  And a few times more, for good measure.

DICKERSON: You talked about the tone and tenor of his campaign. We have had this conversation, you and I, before. Since then, Donald Trump has made a bit of a pivot. He said he regretted some things. He’s tried to change his position on the undocumented workers. He’s also kind of layered over his view about not allowing new Muslim immigration. Have any of those moves done anything to change your thinking about him as a president?

FLAKE: Well, I would like to see him stick with some of those positions for awhile. The ban on Muslims, he does seem to have walked back. He’s talking more about regions or visa vetting process. That seems to be better. I’m glad to see that. With regard to immigration, he pivots, and then pivots right back, so it’s kind of a 360-degree pivot at times. So, I would like to see a firm position that he sticks with for awhile. And, obviously, I would like to see it a more realistic position in dealing with those who are here illegally now.

DICKERSON: You have said a version of that before. Given how long you have held this position, aren’t you really at a point of no return in terms of ever supporting him?

FLAKE: Well, it becomes increasingly difficult to see that he’s going to change. So, I don’t expect that I will be able to support him in November. I would like to, but he’s the Republican nominee. I just don’t see how I can.

DICKERSON: And you have advised other Republican senators running, including John McCain in your state, to distance themselves from Donald Trump. John McCain in an ad appears to be doing that, saying he will be a check against Hillary Clinton. Is he taking your advice?

FLAKE: No, I wouldn’t suggest he’s taking my advice, but he’s doing what I think Republicans need to do. If we want the future of our party to be what it needs to be, we can’t associate with this kind of message and certainly with this kind of tone and the rhetoric that’s being used. Long term, I think that drives away young voters. It certainly drives away a lot of people in the minority community that we’re going to need moving ahead. So, I think John McCain and others are doing exactly what they need to do.

DICKERSON: Hillary Clinton has been saying that Donald Trump is not a part of the Republican Party. She’s been saying there are Republicans who are not like him. Does actually help Republicans who are trying to win in the same year he’s running as president?

FLAKE: It probably does for anybody to say that. For people to be reminded that this is not what the party stands for, I think, is a good thing. I wish more Republicans would say that as well, but if Hillary Clinton wants to say it, I’m glad people — voters are being reminded of it anyway.

This is a transcript of the full exchange between Flake and host John Dickerson. The interview follows Chris Christy‘s interview.

AZ Primary Election: The numbers are a’changin’

September 4, 2016

Elected Precinct Committeemen are under siege again

The ponderous Primary Election count has continued long past Tuesday. Winners become losers and losers, winners as the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office processes thousands of mail-in and provisional ballots.

Congressional District 5 candidate Christine Jones, earlier considered the victor, appears to have lost by 9 votes — 29.47% to 29.48%  to former state Senate President Andy Biggs in the final tabulation early Saturday. Jones has already assembled a team of lawyers and election experts to mount a challenge to the updated numbers.

Even County Recorder Helen Purcell, who oversees elections, is not immune to the vagaries of ballot counting. She has also watched as her political light dimmed and brightened, first being declared the runner-up to challenger Aaron Flannery and then called as the winner by 185 votes— or 50.03% to his 49.97% — at the last count — Saturday 2:03 am.

All of the vote totals can be seen here.

Recounts, as spelled out in Arizona Revised Statutes, Title 16, Chapter 4, Article 12, are sure to be in the future.

If you ran for election as a precinct committeeman, your wait will be even longer. The final tabulation won’t be available until the proverbial cows come home — probably Wednesday Sept. 7. The elections take on larger significance since longtime PCs, the unpaid, grassroots workers of the political parties are once again having an elbow thrust in their gut, as the GOPe (establishment) is working with Team McCain to oust McCain disloyalists — real or imagined— from the party ranks. Concerted efforts include purposely overfilling the allotted number of committeemen allowed in each precinct and then either mailing out or hand delivering cards to households with the names comprising a “conservative slate.”  The maneuver is intended to aid the establishment by knocking actual conservatives off the roster. The fact that these are loyal Republican workers is of no consequence when it comes to the down in the weeds, devious schemes few would expect U.S. Senators to engage in.

Check back here to see if you’ve been replaced.

2016 Primary Election: Wednesday morning quarterbacking

August 31, 2016

Some vote totals in last night’s primary election races remain incomplete. If you ran for precinct committeeman those numbers aren’t yet available. Since McCain operatives were once again working on his behalf, using deceptive practices to remove conservative PCs, you’ll have to wait to see if you’ve been purged.

So there! category: Popular Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s enormous 66% victory over nearest Republican competitor Dan Saban who carried only 26% of the vote. Arpaio’s triumph is more than the lopsided percentages. He prevailed despite contemptible daily assaults from the leftwing Arizona Republic and the relentless punitive measures taken against him and his chief deputy by Judge Murray Snow, who persists despite the fact that a personal conflict should have caused him to recuse himself from the case. Sheriff Arpaio’s runaway victory attests to the fact that the people are fed up with the overbearing judiciary, which previously conducted itself in a judicious manner and was held in esteem..Judge Snow, who suspiciously timed forwarding his bogus case to the feds to coincide with this election,  personifies the current contempt many have for the judiciary. 

Question with no sensible answer: How did Dr. Kelli Ward lose to the deceptive John McCain?  In his Tuesday night acceptance speech, McCain engaged in code talk and thanked his “coalition.” Translation: Out of state, deep pocket, lobbyist backed PACs willing to spend $ millions  to lie about Ward’s support of ISIS terrorists, allegedly based on votes as a state senator, where national security is never on the agenda. Those votes take place in D.C. where McCain has spent close to four decades.  Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick won last night with nearly 33,000 votes more than McCain. A mailer he sent out recently said he would safeguard our conservative Arizona values. How would he know a conservative value?

Unhappy surprise: Congressional District 5: Christine Jones’ single percentage point win over Senate President Andy Biggs, an intelligent and well-respected conservative who knows how to herd cats.

 Welcome upset: Conservative educator Jana Jackson beating incumbent Don Covey in the race for Maricopa County School Superintendent. ERROR: Steve Watson was the winner in the Republican Primary.

Running as a team?The dual losses of Al Melvin and Rick Gray stand as proof that the other fella might not do you a favor. The duo came in last in a field of five where three Corporation Commission were being selected. Bob Burns, who waged war on “dark money” spent by utilities to influence commissioners, Andy Tobin and Boyd Dunn were the victors.

Time‘s up: Longtime Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell will be replaced by Aaron Flannery, who has run a respectful but assertive campaign, calling out Purcell for the snafus on the day of the presidential preference primary where too few polling places left people standing in line for up to 6 hours to cast their ballots.

Jerk replaced by quality: Desert Ridge JP Clancy Jayne was trounced by the very capable Cathy Riggs, a former police detective and law school grad with a BA in Administration of Justice, who exposed Jayne’s numerous reprimands by the Arizona Commission on Judicial Conduct. When Gov. Ducey endorsed Riggs, Jayne let go with a barrage of foul mouthed utterances that should enable him to find employment with John McCain, renown for his own crudeness — even publicly directed at his own wife.

Best resurrection from scandal: Congressional District 1: Pinal County sheriff Paul Babeu easily won the GOP Primary, overtaking five challengers. Ken Bennett’s dismal 4th place showing should keep him out of the political arena in the future. Babeu’s previously much publicized romance with another male is of no consequences in this age of Kaitlyn Jenner. His Democrat challenger, also out of the closet, is the recipient of donations by the Gay& Lesbian Victory Fund.

More evidence of the lack of influence of the Arizona Republic: Though the newspaper endorsed his primary challenger, conservative Congressman Paul Gosar easily captured 71% of the vote.

No surprisesCD 6 incumbent Republican David Schweikert won with 80% of the vote. CD 8 incumbent Republican Trent Franks won with 71% against Clair VanSteenwyk who simultaneously was in the U.S. Senate race. Can’t something be done to keep egotists from running for more than one office at a time?

 Biggest loser not on the ballot: Secretary of State Michele Reagan whose job it is to oversee statewide elections failed miserably with her new “Error” plagued website That word popped up instead of the candidate names and vote totals Arizonans were looking for.  More proof that even this age of technological advances, the old adage, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” still applies.
