3 sentences describe major reason Pres. Trump won

April 8, 2018

Take a moment to read this cogent White House press statement.

This is SRAZ’s shortest post ever in our nearly 11 years of bringing our readers information from a conservative perspective.  When the job is getting done as promised, there’s no need to gild the lily.  The facts eloquently speak for themselves.

McCain’s staff protest Trump’s pick for CIA director

March 14, 2018

Let’s cut to the chase. John McCain was diagnosed in July 2017 with what his Mayo doctors referred to as an aggressive, highly malignant form of brain cancer known as glioblastoma.

According to the American Brain Cancer Association, among the symptoms that can develop as a result of increased pressure on the brain are drowsiness, headaches, weakness, visual changes and memory and speech difficulties. 

McCain’s family would like us to believe that the seriously ill 81-year-old is sitting at home tweeting at breakneck speed and staying out of D.C. only due to concerns of catching the virulent flu that peaked in January. Daughter Meghan claims he might return to work “by summer.” McCain’s senate events” page goes back to 2013 and ends July 2016.

His staff, worried about their own professional futures are obviously working overtime attempting to keep him relevant, since retirement is outside of his realm of rationality.

So when we read that ‘Never Trumper’ John McCain is vehemently opposed to Gina Haspel, President Trump’s choice as C.I.A. director, it naturally raises questions about who is actually pulling the opposition strings. 

In the statement, McCain supposedly demanded Gina Haspel, currently the deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency, must pledge “without reservation” to oppose the use of torture if she is to be approved as director.

“The torture of detainees in US custody during the last decade was one of the darkest chapters in American history,” according to the left-leaning operatives running his office. “We are still dealing with the consequences of that desperately misguided decision.”

“Ms. Haspel,” they opine, “needs to explain the nature and extent of her involvement in the CIA’s interrogation program during the confirmation process.”

Enhanced interrogation techniques such as waterboarding, were successfully used on two high profile al-Qaeda detainees in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001 to retrieve information regarding the mass murder of nearly 3,000 people in New York’s Twin Towers and the Pentagon, by Islamic extremists who commandeered commercial airliners to perpetrate unprecedented carnage on American soil.

America survived the grotesque nightmare they perpetrated, Terrorists and those aligned with them survived being dunked. No one died from waterboarding. Apologizing for using such interrogation techniques is absurd.


A necessary shakeup at the White House

March 13, 2018

In an abrupt ouster Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was fired Tuesday via a presidential tweet. The firing should come as no surprise, since reports of their disagreement on the 2015 disastrous Iran nuclear deal entered into by Barack Obama, have been an obstacle in their relationship.

Globalist Obama submitted the deal — which included more than $100 billion, including $1.8  billion in cash — to the United Nations prior to sending it to congress.

President Trump issued this unequivocal statement early this year.

Coupled with the firing of Tillerson, President Trump announced his intention to nominate CIA Director Mike Pompeo, a former Kansas Congressman, to replace the former Exxon CEO.

Pompeo has called the Iran deal “disastrous.” Tillerson had pushed Trump to remain in the agreement.

CIA Deputy Director Gina Haspel, has been named to take over for Pompeo at the intelligence agency. If confirmed, Haspel would be the CIA’s first female director.

The Hoover Institution, a conservative think tank where Thomas Sowell was a senior fellow until his retirement, ran this illuminating column by Richard Epstein, exposing the risky Iran deal.


USAG Sessions takes illegal alien fight to Calif.

March 8, 2018

Liberals controlling the state, give additional protections to illegals

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session has taken on elected officials in California for  pushing a “radical open borders agenda.” Speaking to the California Peace Officers’ Association in San Diego Wednesday, Sessions accused Democrat Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf of “actively seeking to help illegal aliens avoid apprehension” by warning them of impending San Francisco Bay Area sweeps by  U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers. SRAZ recently covered Schaaf’s indefensible actions.

“Her actions support those who flout our laws and boldly validate the illegality,” Sessions said, adding, “How dare you? How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of law enforcement just to promote your radical open borders agenda.”

Sessions also criticized California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom — the darling of the left, now running for governor —  for praising Schaaf’s warning. Watch this video of open border proponent Gov. Jerry Brown welcoming illegals into California. Brown called Sessions speech, “pure red meat for the base,” preposterously declaring the administration was “going to war with the state.”

“Bragging about and encouraging the obstruction of our law enforcement and the law is an embarrassment to this proud and important state,” Sessions said.

“Contrary to what you might hear from the lawless open borders radicals, we are not asking California, Oakland, or anyone else to enforce immigration laws,” he stated, adding, “California is treating immigration officers differently for the purpose of eviscerating border controls and advancing an open borders philosophy shared by only the most radical extremists.”

 Stating his case clearly, Sessions added, “Stop protecting lawbreakers and giving all officers more dangerous work to do so that a few politicians can score political points on the backs of officer safety,”

“It cannot be that someone who illegally crosses the border and two days later arrives in Sacramento, Dubuque, Louisville, and Central Islip is home free — never to be removed. It cannot be the policy of a great nation to up and reward those who unlawfully enter its country with legal status, Social Security, welfare, food stamps, and work permits. Meanwhile those who engage in this process lawfully and patiently and wait their turn are discriminated against at every turn.”

Attorney General Sessions’ complete speech can be read here.

Tuesday’s lawsuit — filed in Sacramento — represents the escalation of the Trump administration’s push to crack down on illegal immigration.

Sessions was in San Diego to announce the Justice Department’s lawsuit filed in federal court in Sacramento, which seeks to nullify three laws passed by the legislature that constrain federal immigration officers from performing their duties. The laws, granting numerous protections to illegals, were passed and signed by Gov. “Moonbeam” Brown in 2017 as Assembly Bill 450, Senate Bill 54, and Assembly Bill 103.


Globalist claims USA slips in the eyes of the world

January 24, 2018

Although no one likes us, they all want to come here

The U.S. News and World Report article begins with a large dose of high drama, describing the mood on the international conference call at the beginning of this month as somber as Ian Bremmer, self-anointed president of the political risk consulting firm Eurasia Group, prepared to list off top global dangers in the coming year. Trump-hating Bremmer, who has created a niche career for himself, began with this:

“If we had to pick one year for a big unexpected crisis — the geopolitical equivalent of the 2008 financial meltdown — it feels like 2018. The reasons are many, but the most prominent causes for global insecurity stem from U.S. President Donald Trump’s move away from global leadership, and China’s eagerness to fill the perceived vacuum.”

This quote provides an insight of  Bremmer‘s globalist stance: “In a time when so many challenges transcend borders, the need for international leadership has never been greater. We are told that “Trump shocks and divides the world.”

According to Bremmer, “Donald Trump pledged to “Make America Great Again.” The world thinks he is doing the opposite.” To no one’s surprise, the report’s highest disapproval rating goes to President Donald Trump.

Consequently, according to Bremmer’s Eurasia Group, the United States slips in this year’s U.S. News’ Best Countries ranking, dropping to the No. 8 spot. Topping the list are countries such as Canada, Germany and Sweden with increasing Muslim populations and liberal immigration policies that are rendering their native cultures to second class status. Oddly, Japan, which has national policies restricting immigration made the list.

Muhammad has replaced William in the top ten most popular boys’ names in England and Wales, according to the U.K.’s Independent newspaper.

As in 2017, Canada remains the No. 2 in the survey. Germany, as it was in 2016, is perceived as the most powerful country in Europe – surpassing the U.K. to place at No. 3 overall, while the U.K. drops to No. 4.

Meanwhile, demanding “dreamers” who want noting more than to be granted amnesty, followed by full citizenship and voting rights, create a nightmare for Americans.

Disneyland, which bills itself as “the happiest place on earth,” is the latest battle ground for the DACA./dreamers, a band of wild illegals who think waving Mexican flags, screaming obscenities and trying to shut down access to the famed amusement park, will win them support as they blast, “No dream! No deal!” When Barack Obama pushed his illegal executive order through after repeatedly saying he couldn‘t, he sat in the White House and had Democrat House and Senate majorities, but took no further action. President Trump has no obligation to honor this purely political absurdity with unverifiable claims they are all “kids” who were brought to the US by invading parents. Claimants can be up to 36 years of age. The ultimate goal is increase the number of Democrat voters by millions.


Decoding the deceptive language of AZ Republicese

January 8, 2018

Sunday’s edition of the Arizona Republic showcases some sterling examples of liberal skew. In a featured article under ‘Arizona Politics,’ McCain and Flake’s reliably sycophantic assigned reporter Dan Nowicki is back to marginalizing Dr. Kelli Ward, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat soon to be vacated by Jeff Flake. He’s departing due to bottom dragging polling numbers after repeatedly deprecating candidate, and now president, Donald Trump. In the end, he was left with no other face-saving option other than retirement from his.$174,000 (plus benefits) job.

Playing his job security role of political assassin, Nowicki tries and fails miserably linking Kelli Ward, a physician and two term state senator, to unsavory characters across the country. Magicians call this trick “misdirection.”

How best to take down the accomplished woman who would bring conservative stature to Arizona’s senatorial delegation? Nowicki missed the mark by referring to her as a “border security hawk.” Keeping our sovereign border secure is a plus, not a minus to the grassroots Republican base that elected Donald Trump President of the United States.

In the same edition of the newspaper was this peculiar headline: ‘Migrant convicted of murder arrested.’  No, it wasn’t a murderous swallow migrating the 6,000 miles to Capistrano, California from Goya, Argentina. It was an illegal Guatemalan previously convicted of murder in 2005, who served a ridiculously light sentence of four years in prison and was deported. He was caught reentering the U.S. via Southern Arizona.

In its press release headline, U.S. Customs and Border Protection correctly refers to the murderer as an illegal alien. The newspaper adheres to the liberal guidelines in the AP Stylebook, which abhors the words. “illegal” and “alien,“ especially when they abut one another.

The Republic cites a suspicious poll that says the vast majority of Arizonans don’t support construction of at border wall. North American Research Partnership is hardly unbiased. Additionally fomenting the positions it does is a money maker.

Missing from the newspaper’s coverage is the deadly gun battle on the outskirts of the Mexican seaside city of Acapulco that left 11 dead Sunday.  Acapulco is Mexico’s murder capital, the center of opium poppy production. War-like violence has been fed by turf wars over the distribution of street drugs such as heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine.

The former resort city was one of Mexico’s most famous, and for decades served as a playground for the rich and famous. In recent years, however, Acapulco has been overtaken by vicious gang warfare and is now ranked one of the most murderous cities in the world.

The U.S. Department of State has issued this all-encompassing, dire warning for travelers to Mexico. But Mexico remains the Arizona Republic‘s widely touted business partner we should be cultivating to better ourselves. These corrupt, unskilled and uneducated foreign nationals, enmeshed in murderous drug wars and lawlessness are those we should welcome and provide benefits and amnesty?  Something is definitely wrong with this picture.


Amnesty grading system disappoints

December 20, 2017

Numbers USA is a reliable site on the issues of illegal immigration, amnesty, birthright citizenship, the Visa lottery and chain migration. The organization gives report card grades to all U.S. House and Senate members. Founder & CEO Roy Beck’s illuminating “Gumballs” video has educated on these issues in an unrivaled manner. The pull down topics on the top of each page are well researched.

That’s why we are disappointed by the grading system used on, “Do Your Senators Support Giving Chain Migration to Yet Another Amnesty Group?

Using Arizona as an example, lame-duck Sen. Jeff Flake is correctly given a “YES.” His co-sponsorship of S. 1615, the DREAM Act of 2017 is cited among the reasons. Arizonans who pay attention are well aware that he is committed to giving a pass to those who enter our country illegally. He’s leaving the senate due to embarrassingly low polling numbers, but is still able to do damage for another year.

John McCain received a “Leans Yes” grade because he recently cosponsored S. 744, the Gang of 8’s amnesty bill, that would gift Chain Migration to illegal aliens who receive amnesty. The reason? “Sen. McCain does not receive a “YES” rating because he is not cosponsoring legislation in the current Congress that would do so.”

 This is an irrational rationale.  Throughout his overly long congressional career, McCain has been a committed amnesty proponent — favoring a “pathway to citizenship” — while giving the back of his hand to the rule of law by rewarding America’s invaders. Such actions only encourage further illegal entry. Prior to Flake entering the senate, by only three percentage points, his predecessor Jon Kyl partnered with McCain on repeatedly pushing what they euphemistically called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” code words for amnesty.

McCain does not deserve equivocation. When his close friend and senate colleague Ted Kennedy died, McCain recommitted to doing anything he could to “honor” leftist Kennedy by ensuring passage of what amounts to a gift of millions of voters to the Democrat Party. He said he would make sure the legislation would be named for Kennedy.

John McCain and Jeff Flake were the architects of the Gang of 8 amnesty legislation, in which they aligned with the senate’s most committed liberals, including Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) along with two other like-minded RINOs such as Marco Rubio. Flake has plans to resurrect this monstrosity before he leaves the senate in Nov. 2018. If the ailing McCain is able, he will be on board. Numbers USA should know “pending legislation” should not be the sole criteria. Commitment is what counts. 

For a memory refresher, these were the blatant campaign lies told by Sens. Jon Kyl, John McCain and Jeff Flake. Immediately after the ballots were counted they reverted back to their former amnesty positions. Newcomers to Arizona might be easily conned.  We expect Numbers USA to be more savvy.
