Obamacare: Public opinion takes a nose dive

April 30, 2016

More Americans disapprove than approve of Health Care Law

Substantial increases in Obamacare premiums are having a negative impact on Barack Obama’s signature health care measure. In January, he vetoed legislation to repeal the law, claiming doing so “would reverse the significant progress we have made in improving health care in America.”

Yet according to this newly released Pew Research Center survey, 54 percent of Americans disapprove of the 2010 Affordable Care Act compared with only 44 percent who approve of the law. Disapproval has surged by a whopping 10 percentage points. The divide has also become more pronounced since July, when 48 percent of respondents said they approved of the law and 49 percent said they disapproved. Nearly 1/3 of  Americans now say the health care law has had a mostly negative effect on them and their families. 

Freedom Partners lists the shockingly high 2016 Individual Market Exchange Premium increases by state.

The sheeple are waking up to learn there is no such thing as a free lunch. Baa-a.


McSkewed survey: Smoke, mirrors, hand in your pocket

April 21, 2016

McCain strategists obviously turn to focus groups as Arizonans continue to get McScrewed

In another of his campaign beg-a-thon emails to his “friends,” John McCain has included a survey. The 80-year-old aisle-crossing maverick running for another six-year term, and who has been a key advisor to the Obama White House, is once again a candidate, and disingenuously talking tough. He’s also acting as if he cares about those of us outside the D.C. beltway.  “I’m taking the fight to President Obama and I want your help to prioritize my next step. Please take just 30 seconds to share your opinion on five important issues in our country,” McCain pleads.

Of course it’s a fraud, just like everything else McCain hypes or touches. He doesn’t care what the answers to the insultingly ridiculous questions are.  He wants our money. By now he’s sent us so many donation solicitations that he signs off chummily as “John.”

His McSurvey asks inane questions on Veterans, National Security, the Economy, Immigration and Education —- all of which have suffered under John McCain’s watch. The choice of answers are Yes, No and Not Sure.

A sample of the questions:

Do you agree that veterans should have choice in their health care and not be locked into a broken system?

Do you think Arizona’s military assets are important to our national security? Do you agree with the President and Democrats that the sanctions on Iran – a country with known ties to terrorists – should be lifted, even after it violated the terms of the agreement?

Are you concerned about America’s out-of-control federal debt — now nearly $19 trillion and rising?

Are you concerned by President Barack Obama’s handling of our nation’s border security and the flow of illegal immigrants to the United States?

In the last few years, I helped stabilize pay rates for Border Patrol agents in Arizona, effectively providing more man power on the border. And just last year, the National Defense bill directed more than $170 million to critical border projects, including towers, communications, and critical air assets used by law enforcement. Do you believe these are important steps to securing our border?

 Strong schools make Arizona’s economy stronger, providing more opportunities to retain local talent – do you agree?

Had enough of the campaign related blather from the dodgy codger? Here’s the logical solution.


Medved schemes to obstruct 2016 GOP prez nominee

March 5, 2016

Radio talk show host Michael Medved proclaims his political conservatism, but listening to his weekday program will quickly disabuse anyone but the most naive of that erroneous notion. A law school dropout, he often warmly refers to his short-term Yale law classmate Hillary Rodham and wistfully refers to his days as a liberal, working for left wing politicians — even putting words in their mouths as a speechwriter.  His side career as a movie reviewer is more in keeping with his Hollywoodish liberal leanings. 

On Friday Medved exposed he truth behind his charade when he told a caller he wouldn’t be voting for Donald Trump if he becomes the GOP nominee. The caller reminded Medved that he previously said he would support the Republican candidate. Medved responded by saying he never took a pledge.

Trump is surging due to frustration with the status quo, spineless Republicans holding a majority in both the U.S. House and Senate, who facilitate Obama’s bloated budgets, trade deals, global schemes that penalize the U.S. while giving a pass to third world nations. Americans want their Constitutional rights protected and are tired of executive orders bypassing congress and the flooding of our states with hordes of unvetted mostly young male “refugees” from terror sponsoring nations. They are enraged about losing control of their own healthcare. The lack of political will to close the border with Mexico is fueling ire around the country.

These issues and more have created the perfect storm. Yes, Trump’s undignified manner, goaded by Marco Rubio, is disturbing. Equally so is Kasich’s mulish determination to stay in the race until Ohio‘s primary, in an effort to ensure a brokered convention that will guarantee utter chaos. Rubio ensured his nonentity position as an integral member of John McCain’s amnesty pushing Gang of Eight. 

Trump is far from perfect, but if the election features him against an even less perfect Hillary Clinton, the choice is clear. Another eight years of Obama-like policies imposed by the brazen liar Clinton is entirely unacceptable.  There are sure to be vacancies on the U.S. Supreme Court.  A leftward lurch would irretrievably change the direction of our country.  Hillary has even suggested appointing Obama to the Supreme Court.

Medved, who previously supported Jeb! and recently has promoted Marco Rubio, now confirms he’d be fine with Hillary.  Here in Arizona, his program runs from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM on KKNT, 960 AM  “The Patriot.” Insomniacs, with a penchant for self-abuse, can hear the show repeat 1:00 AM – 4:00 AM.

KKNT’s General Manager is Jim Ryan. He can be reached at (602) 955-9600. If you resent having a liberal charlatan masquerading as a conservative while attempting to undermine the presidential election, you might want to give Mr. Ryan a call Monday morning. It’s bad enough to be assaulted by liberalism from the majority of unapologetic media sources.  But when one stands out as promoting conservatism, and in fact does exactly the opposite, we should let the station and advertisers know that it may be time to change their lineup.


Obama’s brazen anti-gun agenda stifles 2nd Amendment

January 5, 2016

Arrogant executive action usurping congressional powers latest in series ranging from climate change to illegal immigration

The imperial Barack Obama, increasingly inclined to govern unilaterally — bypassing congress by use of his regal twins executive orders, and issuances of Presidential Memoranda is at it again.

This time instead of cozying up to communist dictators in Cuba and colluding to expand nuclear capabilities to Islamic madmen in Iran, he’s playing hardball with the U.S. Constitution. In attempting to curtail our Second Amendment freedoms, the lame duck president fully exposes what many Americans have long regarded as his contempt of our liberty.

Obama’s overreaches have resulted in a record number of firearms-related background checks — well over 23-million — last year. Records indicate that more guns were sold in 2015 than in any previous year in American history. In December alone, the FBI conducted 3,314,594 background checks, an increase of more than half a million checks over the previous single-month record set in December 2012.

Simply put, gun and ammo sales are surging because Americans have no confidence the government can protect them and their families and actually fear Obama’s repressive tactics.

Among Obama’s proposed firearm restrictions, curbs on gun purchases would extend to those accused of violence against current or former dating partners or those with temporary restraining orders. A gun-possession ban for Social Security beneficiaries who are believed incapable of handling their own finances is also included.

On Monday, Jan. 4, Barack Obama released this multi-pronged FACT SHEET: New Executive Actions to Reduce Gun Violence. Individual sales between two people will require the seller be a registered, licensed dealer, and submit to a background check any time they sell a gun from their private collection. Assessing mental health has become the purview of the government as doctors are asked to become informants.  

Hypocrisy is rampant. As they propose to diminish our Second Amendment rights, Obama and his family and the Clinton’s are secure with armed secret service protection.  Seeing Red AZ posted “Dem gun hypocrites,” in Dec. 2012, detailing the congressional liberals and double talking,  left-wing celebrities who have concealed carry permits and own firearms — which they support restricting us from accessing.   

The Second Amendment is about much more than simply carrying concealed, hunting, or sport shooting. Our right to keep and bear arms is a bulwark against tyranny.

The TrainMeAZ Campaign is designed to teach and bring gun safety and knowledge to every Arizonan. Check it out.


Dr. Kelli Ward & Prof. David Brat: Upsets can happen

November 28, 2015

Bucking the establishment: The new political reality

U.S. Rep. David Brat was never supposed to be serving in Congress. But he is. In what appeared an unlikely Goliath vs. David race, the conservative college economics professor took on the disconnected and arrogant RINO House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Yet despite Cantor’s 26-to-1 cash advantage, as Politico reports, Brat beat him in a historic GOP primary upset. Brat’s decisive intra-party victory over Cantor made him the first primary challenger to oust a sitting House Majority Leader since the position’s creation in 1899.

Here in Arizona, conservatives are sensing a similar scenario. Dr. Kelli Ward, an emergency room physician and two term state senator, is gaining steam in the 2016 U.S. Senate race.

Ward is the newly announced recipient of this enthusiastic endorsement from the Conservative Campaign Committee (CCC). Breitbart reports the group sent out an email urging PAC supporters to back Ward, a Lake Havasu City conservative, against John McCain.

Breitbart cites the list of grievances against the liberal McCain, and notes Sen. Ward’s first quarter fundraising, an achievement it states “that at least in recent history has only been outdone by Sen. Ted Cruz.

“The momentum is building for Conservative Republican Kelli Ward and with your help we can win this race! The most recent Gravis Marketing Survey shows Kelli Ward leading John McCain among Republican voters by a 9-point margin, 45% – 36%,” reads a portion of the CCC PAC message.

 As a practicing physician, Dr. Ward understands the negative impact of Obamacare on America’s citizens and outlines a plan to repeal the costly and care-rationing monstrosity.  Remember Democrat Nancy Pelosi told us, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it — away from the fog of the controversy.”

As our Friday post we ran “McLosers featured at Mesa campaign rally,“ referencing the extreme measures Team McCain is taking in an effort to fill the house at his upcoming campaign event. They have resorted to announcing the “surprise special guest” — Mitt Romney — two weeks in advance of the actual program.  

Visit the comment section to see two brief but stellar videos posted by SRAZ readers that flawlessly exemplify John McCain. SRAZ has an entire section “McStench” dedicated to Arizona’s pro-amnesty senior senator, who will be 80 by Election Day and is running for another 6-year term. He says he still has more to do.

After more than three decades of his colluding with the left, Arizona ‘s citizens who desire a truthful senator, not a self-proclaimed “maverick,” have already had all they can stomach.


Hillary sticks to liberal PP lie during Iowa interview

September 25, 2015

Des Moines Register interview: Hillary doesn’t deviate from repeating Planned Parenthood lie

National Review knows the truth. Two months ago the publication carried this article by Michelle Malkin which set the record straight on the false claim, even repeated by candidate Barack Obama in 2012, that Planned Parenthood  provides mammograms to “millions” of women. That would be quite a trick given the fact that the nation’s leading abortion provider has neither the equipment nor trained personnel to administer breast cancer screening exams. . 

We don’t provide those services whatsoever,” a staffer at Planned Parenthood of Arizona confessed during this video exposé. 

Malkin notes: Even the liberal Washington Post doled out a three (out of four) Pinocchio rating for the White House’s mammogram lies. “The problem here is that Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms or even possess the necessary equipment to do so,” the paper’s resident fact-checker reported. 

Ladies, open your eyes and hearts. Watch the videos for yourselves. Get the facts. Unmask the lies. The cackling profiteers of Planned Parenthood don’t care about your breasts. They’re too busy putting price tags on the baby hearts, livers, lungs, and limbs swirling around in bloody pie plates, stacked in their “research” labs, subsidized with your tax dollars and sold to the highest bidders. For “preventative care,” of course.

Yet Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, during an interview with the Des Moines Register editorial board, defends the taxpayer funding of these abortion profiteers, saying, “I defend and continue to defend Planned Parenthood.”*

She continues by heaping lies upon lies: “500,000 you know, breast screening exams, a lot of other screening programs that are carried out,” Clinton claimed.

Hillary’s brazen dishonesty continued as she stated, “The Republicans have made it clear in recent years that they are not only opposed to abortion which they have been for quite some time, they’re increasingly opposed to family planning and contraception.”

Pro-life Susan B. Anthony List provides this Fact Sheet for an overview of  Planned Parenthood’s statistics. During fiscal year 2013-2014, Planned Parenthood received more than $528 million in taxpayer funding, or more than $1.4 million per day

The Center for Medical Progress, which released the Planned Parenthood exposés, is to be commended for bringing the macabre truths of this monstrous industry to light via these videos.

Thousands unite to protest Planned Parenthood

August 23, 2015

Nationwide protests against Planned Parenthood were held Saturday in the wake of the release of vile videos showing PP executives coolly haggling over prices in the calculated harvesting and sale of pre-born baby body parts. Pro-Life activists demonstrated at a reported 320 clinics across the country.

In Phoenix hundreds of protestors heard Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, U.S. Reps. Trent Franks and David Schweikert as well as AZ GOP Chairman Robert Graham speak out against the gruesome practices that are funded by tax dollars funneled to the abortion mills of Planned Parenthood by the federal government. Protests took place in several other Valley cities, including Chandler, Tempe and Glendale.

“We call on Congress to end federal funding for Planned Parenthood,” declared Montgomery.

CNS News, citing numbers from Planned Parenthood’s Annual Report, reports PP’s net revenue increased 5% to a total of $1.21 Billion in its organizational fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013. About 45% of that revenue —- $540.6 million —- was provided by taxpayer-funded government ‘health services” grants. Breitbart News’ “Planned Parenthood Annual Report: All About Abortions and Profits,” contains updated 2014 information. 

Although Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider, it cloaks itself as a women’s health care organization.

Seeing Red AZ posted “Planned Parenthood’s gruesome realities in mid-July, revealing the death industry’s deeply embedded roots in Arizona.

The Center for Medical Progress, which released the Planned Parenthood exposés, is to be commended for bringing the macabre truths of this monstrous industry to light via these videos.

It’s past time for the taxpayer-funded money spigot to be turned off.
