Phx City Council meeting: Satanists to deliver prayer

January 30, 2016

Will Mayor Greg Stanton bow his PC head in reverence?

Political correctness is in full bloom in Phoenix. The blue city in a red state has struggled under liberal Democrat mayors since the embarrassing Phil Gordon held sway at City Hall from 2004  — until the equally left-wing Greg Stanton was elected in 2012.

Phoenix city government promotes the sham of non-partisan elections though it’s always been clear where political allegiances lie.

In typical liberal fashion, Stanton, who led the 2014 “gay pride” parade and officially recognized the Greater Phoenix Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, has now approved representatives of a local Satanic group delivering the invocation — previously known as the opening prayer — at the Council’s Feb. 17 meeting.

Read the Fox News coverage, which includes a reassuring claim from one of the Satanists who refused to disclose what the group was planning for the invocation, but said, “We don’t intend on doing anything offensive.”

By whose standards?


Eden-like wisdom dispensed by John McCharlatan

January 29, 2016

There it was, hanging like juicy, ripe fruit on the tree of Breitbart. Missing was the beguiling temptress to provide the enticement, but the forked-tongue serpent was fittingly portrayed by Arizona’s senior Sen. John McCain. And his message encompassing all political wisdom? John McCain, who spectacularly lost the White House to Barack Obama in 2008 — barely carrying Arizona by 8+ percent — now has the audacity to opine on why Republicans lose elections.

John Nolte, writing for Breitbart makes no bones about the fact that McCain knows a thing or two about losing big. Editor-at-large Nolte correctly noted that McCain lost the 2008 presidential election even before it began. Additionally as we have pointed out, he has few friends outside of the Republicrat establishment and the Democrats he regularly colludes with. For his career-long transgressions, he’s been repudiated by elected Republican state and county committeemen who have repeatedly censured him. Both John McCain and his doppelganger Jeff Flake have been the object of their jeers and backs turned to them in disgust.

Embarrassingly unable to generate a crowd, even with a cringe-worthy suspenseful build up, John McCain chafes at Donald Trump’s ability to draw thousands as he has done during his Phoenix and Mesa visits. When the Arizona senators do hold “town halls” the meetings are frequently closed-door events with hand selected attendees.

In the Breitbart article, McCain absurdly expounds on the integrity of journalists, as if they have that rare commodity in abundance — or that he would even recognize integrity if it looked him squarely in the eye.

SRAZ recommends you take a few minutes to read, Why We Lose: John McCain Blasts Trump For ‘Destruction of the Press.’ It’s definitely worth your time — and reassuring for Arizona conservatives, who are fed up with the decades of John McCain’s arrogant deceit, to know we are not alone.


GOP debate tonight Jan. 28, 2016: 5 to 8 (AZ)

January 28, 2016

Unpredictable, petulant Trump, ignores voters, grabs headlines,  risks alienating base

Parents have long known it’s the agitating kid demanding attention, who challenges the adults to react. Now the presidential candidate tantrum thrower is not even going to show after pitching a fit and engaging in derisive name calling.  Donald Trump has referred to close rival Ted Cruz as a “liar,” mockingly declaring, “Nobody likes him.”  Accusing Fox News of “playing games” with him, GOP frontrunner Trump is boycotting tonight’s Fox News/Google debate after referring to moderator Megyn Kelly as a “lightweight and third-rate reporter.”

Here we go again. Either by widely publicized inaction or roaring bravado, Trump becomes the news as the seriousness of the prime time debate is pushed to the back burner.

The Fox News/Google main event is set for 6 P.M. (9 p.m. ET) tonight, Thursday, Jan. 28,  in Des Moines, Iowa and marks the first GOP presidential primary debate that is Trumpless. Instead he’ll host an event in Iowa to raise money for Veterans and Wounded Warriors — a noble gesture indeed, but one he could do on any other night. Americans want to hear from the candidates tonight.

Participants include Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, John Kasich, and Rand Paul.

Those qualifying for the earlier, 5 p.m. (AZ time) second tier debate are: Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, and Jim Gilmore.

Both debates will be moderated by Fox News anchors. The earlier one will feature Martha MacCallum and Bill Hemmer.  Prime time honors go to Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier and Chris Wallace.

The candidate lineup was decided based on the results of national, New Hampshire and Iowa polling  To qualify for the prime-time debate, candidates had to place in the top six in an average of recent national polls, or in the top five in an average of recent Iowa or New Hampshire polls. The earlier  debate features candidates who received a minimum 1 percent in at least one recent national poll.

This debate will be the candidates’ last before the Monday, Feb. 1, 2016 Iowa caucuses – which kick off the Republican presidential nominating process.

Access the debate on Fox News Channel (cable TV). Streaming at FoxNews.com and Fox News mobile apps. Live stream at KFYI-AM 550 radiol.


Trump tramples intelligence of supporters

January 26, 2016

Donald Trump is so confident of the loyalty of his supporters that he recently boasted, “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.” 

He delivered his crass message at a weekend campaign rally in Sioux Center, Iowa. The Feb. 1 Iowa caucus is less than a week away, making the timing of hurling insulting comments at his base all the more odd.  Though the caucus is widely regarded as crucial to the 2016 presidential race, this list of previous winners exposes the fallacy of it as an accurate predictor of future White House occupants.

At stake are 30 Republican and 52 Democrat delegates.


Hillary and McCain: Chug-a-lug buddies

December 31, 2015

McCain_lovingly_Hillary

There are no doubt a lot of odd couples out drinking tonight, but this one is too unsavory to devote much time to without getting queasy yourself.

The Hill reports on the oddest of odd couples and their vodka drinking contest. Chug-a-lug…..

“We have our political differences, but we sat there drinking vodka,” Clinton said.

In actuality, their political differences are few to none. McCain has called Hillary Clinton a “rock star” he could support for president.


Jeff Flake exposed as colluding with radical Islamist

December 16, 2015

Playing politics with Hamas fellow traveler

Conservative Review, which has consistently given “F” ratings to Jeff Flake and his mentor John McCain, runs a revealing commentary by Daniel Horowitz.  Carrying the compelling title, “Jeff Flake Visits Islamic Extremist Who Chastised Moderate Muslims,” it exposes the staggering hypocrisy recently exhibited by Arizona’s junior senator.

Show-boater Flake earned accolades from the left-wing Arizona Republic for his recent family outing to the Islamic Center of the Northeast Valley in Scottsdale. It was there he displayed his abysmal lack of historical knowledge as he drew bizarre parallels between “persecution suffered by Mohammad” and leaders of his own LDS faith as he addressed the congregants at the mosque. His soiree was photographed — including an image of Flake putting his shoes back on — and covered by Dan Nowicki, McCain’s assigned reporter at the Republic.

The newspaper ate up the contrivance like cotton candy. Flake’s self-righteous gambol resulted in front page coverage and an editorial extolling his “solidarity” with the Muslim community in light of Donald Trump’s recent suggestion of curtailing entry into the U.S. of unable-to-be-vetted Syrians claiming refugee status.

Missing from the glowing coverage is that Flake chose as his photo-op venue a mosque led by Imam Anas Hlayhel, the head of the Arizona branch of CAIR — an organization found by a 5th Circuit judge to be a North American funding arm of Hamas during the Holy Land Foundation trial.  Details of the radical group are included in Horowitz’ commentary.

He writes: Anyone who wants to learn more about the leadership of this mosque should read this riveting op-ed by prominent moderate Muslim, M. Zuhdi Jasser, M.D.  Jasser is president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy and author of “A Battle for the Soul of Islam: An American Muslim Patriot’s Fight to Save His Faith.”  After going on Fox to criticize the Muslim Brotherhood last year, Jasser was publicly demeaned by an Imam at the Islamic Center of the Northeast Valley.

Watch Dr. Jasser, a Valley physician, here as he refutes Obama’s claim that “ISIS is not Islamic.”


Paul Ryan: intent on funding Muslim “refugees“

December 14, 2015

The time has come to act in the best interests of Americans and ditch the PC blather

House Speaker Paul Ryan was heralded as an economic genius when Mitt Romney tapped him as his vice presidential running mate in 2012. It turns out Ryan, now the House Speaker, is a go-along-to-get-along guy.  And the one he is most intent on getting along with is Barack Obama.

Appearing more and more like kid werewolf Eddie Munster, Ryan is preparing to issue Obama a blank check in the year-end $1.1 trillion dollar omnibus to dangerously admit and resettle in the U.S. impossible to vet Syrian, Iraqi and other Muslims claiming refugee status. The omnibus is expected to be made public today and voted on Wednesday.

The House Freedom Caucus, touted as conservative, is not demanding Ryan block funding for “refugee” resettlement immigration.

Conservative commentator Mark Levin is quoted as saying, “These people inside Washington — they don’t get it. This is World War III. Could you imagine during World War II or World War I having these discussions? World War I, under a hideous president, Woodrow Wilson, World War II under an almost equally hideous president, FDR — did they worry about any of this stuff? Was this the national debate? The national debate was how to secure the nation and destroy the enemy and how to destroy the enemy as quickly as possible — victory, victory, victory. Do these guys even talk about victory? This entire debate is absurd.”

And that broad coalition of partners Obama claims is joining in the fight to stop ISIS? We can’t count on much help from Germany as Chancellor Angela Merkel on Sunday brushed off what a Germany magazine said was a request from the United States to provide more military help in the fight against Islamic terrorists. “I believe Germany is fulfilling its part and we don’t need to talk about new issues related to this question at the moment,” she said.

Syndicated columnist Larry Kudlow began his political life as a dedicated liberal. Along the way, he cleared his head and during Reagan’s first term, Kudlow was appointed associate director for economics and planning in the Office of Management and Budget, working closely with the president. This brief bio is provided as a backdrop to reading his National Review column, “I’ve Changed. This Is War. Seal the Borders. Stop the Visas,” in which he describes what he calls his hardline shift from an immigration reformer.

His article begs to be read.
