Trump adopts policies of Lincoln, rather than Reagan

July 29, 2018

It’s time to re-Lincolnize the GOP

From time to time we post an exceptional column under the heading, “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.”

Today we bring you a gem. “The Lincoln Model: How Trump Can Shut Down the Democratic Plantation.” Posted on Townhall, it Is excerpted from Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, “Death of a Nation.” His movie with the same title opens nationwide Friday, August 3.

We invite you to read this remarkable commentary on President Donald Trump, who more closely conforms to President Abraham Lincoln than to President Ronald Reagan on vital issues including immigration and tariffs.

D’Souza’s revealing expose on Democrats’ lies is illuminating. He writes,

“For too long conservatives and Republicans have allowed big lies to take over the culture and, in some cases, their minds. This progressive cultural hegemony has polluted our education system and our media with fake narratives and fake history. It has also created a kind of Stockholm syndrome among conservative intellectuals. “In our hearts we know we’re wrong.” But we’re not wrong. We’ve been lied to. It’s time for us to stop apologizing—we have nothing to apologize for—and go on the offensive. Truth is our deadliest weapon, if we will deploy it.”

And while we‘re on the topic of President Trump, the Washington Examiner headlines it’s report,Media blackout: Trump’s 60-point accomplishment list of ‘American Greatness,’” detailing the lack of media coverage of the achievements the Trump administration has racked up, both domestically and internationally, in its first 500 days. The list is bullet-pointed for ease in reading.

Today is a two-for-one-day. Enjoy!

AZ Republic’s selective memory, hypocrisy, misplaced outrage

July 17, 2018

The headline in this morning’s edition of Arizona’s leftist newspaper, still apoplectic over the fact that Donald Trump was overwhelmingly elected President of the United States, blasts a single word, all caps, headline: ‘DISGRACEFUL.’

It refers to President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland and Trump’s reputed recognition of Putin’s denials of meddling in U.S. elections. President Trump has since amended his comment saying he used the words, “would not” when he in fact intended to say “would” when describing whether he thought the Russians were possibly hacking our elections.

Trump-hater John McCain, suffering from what his Mayo neurosurgeons described as an aggressive brain malignancy, has not been seen in public since last year. Yet we are led to believe he is still sending out tweets and press releases. His staff is hard at work, but it’s a good bet the seriously ill senator is not.  His wife recently sent out messages of thanks to his devoted caregivers. This is supposedly McCain’s latest missive, in which the failed presidential candidate accused the president of “disgraceful behavior” and “defending a tyrant.” Not a negative word was heard from McCain when his underling Jeff Flake traveled to Communist Cuba with Obama and made deals with the murderous Castro dictators

 The hypocrisy is rampant.

When Barack Obama, attending a global nuclear security summit in South Korea — oblivious to his open mic — and conspiratorially leaned over asking for Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for “space,” the Arizona Republic  took it in stride.

“This is my last election,” Obama said. “After my election I’ll have more flexibility,” (brief video) assuring the Russian leader he would have the “flexibility” required to deal with Russia on missile defense issues after the 2012 presidential election.

There was no widespread media outrage regarding Obama’s collusion on a massive uranium deal selling Russia large U.S. reserves and the benefits that accrued to the Clinton Foundation in the wake of the transfers, as reported by the NY Times. Obama’s payoff of $1.7 billion in ransom to tyrannical, America-hating Iran for hostages was met with deafening silence.

Obama went on a worldwide apology tour, listing what he considered America’s transgressions and calling the United States “arrogant.” He bowed before the Muslim Saudi King and other tyrants and dictators. Where was the Arizona Republic‘s outrage then?  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed evidence that Obama operatives were deeply involved in trying to oust him from office.

Neither did Arizona’s Hillary-endorsing newspaper, blast headlines of her years of deceit and attempts to obscure the truth throughout her time as Obama’s Secretary of State or as a presidential candidate. The newspaper was enamored with the substandard known liar, described as engaging in a “staggering dereliction of duty and deception,” in the deaths — including the U.S. ambassador — at our government compound in Benghazi, Libya. Her compromising of national security by using a private server located in the bathroom closet of her home was given short shrift. Her lies were more than outrageous, they were dangerous and ongoing, but she was given a pass and endorsed.

The double standard is beyond rational, but it thrives at the local newspaper.


Illegals’ status enhanced by ability to expand Dem voter bloc

June 16, 2018

Though the left intentionally misuses the words, illegal aliens are not “immigrants” or “migrants.” Immigrants enter the U.S. legally, using our generous system that takes in over a million yearly. Migrants are the swallows that come to Capistrano each March 19, but even they return home to Argentina.

The political rhetoric surrounding separating children from their illegal invader parents has escalated past a fevered pitch. A USA Today front page photo showing a father asking, in Spanish, of course, “Why are you taking my boy?” is a guaranteed heartstrings tugger. The report details the man’s long journey from Honduras to Texas with his 5-year-old son in tow. He left his wife and other children back home. The boy was supposed to be insurance.

Open border advocates and legal advisers have been counseling illegals breaching our border to bring their children and coaching them on the “magic words” to memorize enabling them to fall within the statute of credible fear that will put them on the asylum track, according to border officials.  Mostly uneducated Central Americans from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, trekking through Mexico, but not stopping there, continue to flood the U.S. Once here they send back $billions of U.S. dollars in remittances to their homelands.

The mainstream media focus is on the Trump administration’s zero tolerance policies, although Newsweek reminds readers that Barack Obama held more than double the number of children in shelters compared to the Trump White House.

Families are routinely separated in the criminal justice system when adults break the law. It’s known as consequences for unlawful actions. If you rob a bank, you’ll be guaranteed to be separated from your kids, regardless of your country of origin. Taking a preschooler along on the heist will not ensure release from police custody. If anything, putting a youngster in harm’s way will enhance the charges.

A question to ponder: Would the throngs of immigration lawyers and illegal advocates be as committed to providing advice, aid and comfort, if they thought  the majority of these “refugees” would register as Republicans?

This is syndicated columnist Ann Coulter’s reasonable twitter take:

@AnnCoulter

No, Chuck Schumer, I do not want to see illegals separated from their children.

I want to see them separated from our country.

Phil Boas asks God for deliverance from Pres. Trump

June 15, 2018

With FBI Director Christopher Wray’s new release of facts from the 500+ page Department of Justice Inspector General’s report regarding the “rooting out of bias” perpetrated against presidential candidate Donald Trump* from within the highest levels of government, examine the same type of anti-Trump bias displayed right here in Arizona. In this instance, we’re not referring to the contrived attempt at influence peddling by former president Bill Clinton as he boarded the plane of then-U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport as it appeared increasingly likely his wife would face criminal charges — which ultimately never materialized. They claimed to have discussed their grandchildren.

No. These hits don’t originate with D.C. power brokers or with a partisan former FBI Director shamefully exemplified by James Comey, who gave the deceitful Mrs. Clinton a pass for her countless illicit transgressions, but on the pages of the local newspaper where relentless attacks against candidate, and now President Donald Trump, remains the subject of multi-pronged, repetitive hits.

Who can forget Phil Boas? He’s the editorial page editor of the anorexic and failing Arizona Republic, better known for his loathsome dedication to bringing down 6-term Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio — Boas’ own father-in-law.

All Republicans — except pretenders John McCain and Jeff Flake — are worthy of this partisan goon’s savagery. He despises President Donald Trump with such visceral animosity that his editorial regarding the historic Singapore meeting Trump negotiated with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a leading despot on the world’s stage, is titled, “God help us if Trump solved N. Korea.”

It so rankles Boas that the businessman President who wrote, “The Art of the Deal,” just might have averted a global nuclear catastrophe, it leaves him editorially sputtering, “God help us,” numerous times in the editorial. Boas has lived to middle age without comprehending that those words are uttered by desperate people seeking divine intervention in hopeless situations. 

Those of us who comprehend the significance of such a meeting that has not previously occurred in any administration in nearly 75 years — since the Korean peninsula was divided following World War II — are awed by this extraordinary summit, that showcased cordiality from the leaders of both countries.

Rather than rejoicing or giving credit where it’s due, Phil Boas begrudgingly concedes, “It’s a long shot, but there is reason to believe Trump could actually pull this off. Kim could have caught the vision,“ he contemptuously writes, “and if he has, he could make Trump look like a genius.”

Followed by another plea, “God help us.”

The Hillary Clinton-endorsing liberals at the newspaper would rather have nukes aimed at the United States, Japan and South Korea than concede that President Trump should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.  Barack Obama received the honor simply for breathing. He was nominated within 12 days of taking the oath of office. Read the fascinating time line by attorney Tommy De Seno.

And, as far as the local newspaper? If you’re still one of the remaining subscribers, ditch it. Why support a publication that holds you and our president in contempt?

* As usual, the U.K.”s Daily Mail provides excellent in-depth coverage.


Irrelevant AZ senators rate headline for G-7 Trump bashing

June 9, 2018

 Nonentities John McCain and Jeff Flake serve as useful idiots to leftist Arizona Republic

This reckless coverage attempting to undermine the President of the United States as he meets with G-7 leaders on the World Stage, is — unfortunately for all Americans who reap the rotten harvest  — typical of the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper.

Insults are one thing.  Acting to destabilize President Donald Trump is unconscionable. Trump has shown himself to be an effective leader, even engaging North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to the negotiation table, an unheard of event in over 70 years. The country was partitioned in 1945.

Arizona has zero representation in the U.S. Senate. John McCain, reported to be planning his own funeral, hasn’t been seen in D.C. in nearly a year except for this diabolically rehearsed drama. Jeff Flake suspended his reelection campaign due to his embarrassing low 18 approval ratings. Yet these two irrelevants rate the headline?

Something is very wrong with this picture.


Jeff as Flaky as ever: Still bonded to Cuban dictators

June 6, 2018

A quick perusal of the soon-to-be-departing Sen. Jeff Flake’s press releases shows the contrarian still pushing his anti-Trump rhetoric. He hammers the president for his imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminum products, intended to put the USA back In the economic driver’s seat.

In his commencement address to graduates of Harvard  Law School, he inanely slammed the president — without mentioning his name —- for guiding a a national descent  into “rank tribalism.”

He defended his indefensible votagainst the nomination of CIA Director Gina Haspel, who was confirmed by a 54-45 vote. Then with his seriously ill mentor John McCain nowhere In sight, the vacuous Flake finally voted “aye.”

These brutish actions were all just lead-ins to his most recent inexcusable action, but one he has been bonded to for decades. The fact is, Jeff Flake has a fondness for dictators. Communist tyrants like the murderous Castro brothers who violently repressed their own countrymen, have long topped his list.

Breitbart News provides a ringside view into the most recent Flakiness with an article titled, “Jeff Flake Lends Support to Cuba’s Puppet President.”

The meeting was the first with an American government guest since Diaz-Canel took office. He remains subordinate to the country’s leader, dictator Raul Castro.

 “It was certainly a friendly meeting with the president, he very much … he’s an engineer and was certainly, talking about this subject, was very fluent in what is needed in Cuba and the benefits that come from greater connectivity,” Flake said.

Flake, who has compared democratically elected U.S. President Donald Trump to brutal Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin — recognized by historians as directly responsible for the deaths of at least 20 million people  — did not publicly challenge Diaz-Canel or any Cuban officials on the gross human rights violation the Castro regime has inflicted on its people for six decades.

In 2015, we posted, “Jeff Flake: Obama’s top Republican ally,”

Don’t hold your breath waiting to hear anything negative about the island nation’s Communist regime from Jeff Flake. He accompanied Barack Obama to Cuba to celebration Obama’s dropping of sanctions against Cuba.

Jeff Flake, whose main thrust has been pushing amnesty for illegal aliens, is leaving the U.S. Senate after one term due to his bottom-dragging 18 percent approval ratings, admitting he couldn’t win a primary election.

Dr. Kelli Ward, deserves your vote and support.


John McCain and Ronald Reagan: A study in contrasts

May 17, 2018

Americans routinely lose celebrated icons in the realm of entertainment, religion and politics. Sometimes the end comes suddenly. In other instances, it is slow and torturous. Rarely do we know the people personally, but they impact us in myriad ways. 

White-suited author Tom Wolfe died this past week. We recall his well-turned phrases that still rattle around in our consciousness. Movie stars and singers with whom we felt a personal affinity have left a void, though we never shook their hands, we can’t forget their famous lines, or words of their songs.

When President Reagan was shot in an assassination attempt in 1981, it changed our lives, but not his. Displaying his well known grace and knack for humor, he joked with his doctors as he was prepped for surgery, saying, “Please tell me you’re all Republicans.” One doctor, a Democrat, responded, “Mr. President, We are all Republicans today.”

During a presidential debate with Democrat Walter Mondale, a reporter pressed Reagan on the issue of his age, reminding him that he was already the oldest president in history. Reagan took it in good humor, saying, “I want you to know that I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent’s youth and inexperience.” He was able to deflect an insult with amiable wit.

This is McCain’s idea of a joke, perpetrated against his fellow citizens.

There was no press coming to Reagan’s defense and his family didn’t jump in with highly charged tirades against those who ridiculed him as “old,” or “an actor,” implying his was incapable of making sound leadership decisions in a powder-keg global environment.  Instead, he boldly stood in front of Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate and challenged Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev totear down this wall.” His actions precipitated the end of the Communist Soviet Union.

These instances — and many others — come to mind as the local Hillary Clinton-endorsing newspaper has turned into the Daily McCain, genuflecting at his altar, telling us which comments we should be outraged over if they are not slavishly honorific enough to the seriously ill McCain. During a private White House meeting it was leaked that a remark was made that acknowledged McCain was dying. All hell broke lose as both Cindy McCain and daughter Meghan publicly questioned why that person wasn’t fired. Belligerent to the end, McCain has publicly announced he does not want President Trump in attendance at his funeral.

McCain, the son and grandson of Admirals, was born into a life of privilege, easily gaining appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy, though graduating at the bottom of his class.

Reagan, whose father was a shoe salesman and alcoholic, was born in an apartment over a commercial business, moving frequently throughout his younger years. He worked his way through college. On his path to the White House, Ronald Reagan’s history included stints as a lifeguard, sportscaster, actor, labor union leader — and governor of California — by which time he had become a Republican.

Five years after leaving the presidency, Ronald Reagan announced his diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease in this letter, reprinted in Time magazine. It was done with the same combination of grace, fortitude and dignity he had exhibited throughout his two terms as president — ending with these words:

“I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life. I know that for America there will always be a bright dawn ahead. Thank you, my friends. May God always bless you.”
