Barack Obama: Prime example of the left’s hypocrisy

October 5, 2018

America under Trump reaches new highs that have nothing to do with illicit drugs or booze binges

This video* is worthy of note after the debacle Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been put through in the wake of his nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Donald Trump.

Democrats have a far different standard for themselves. Barack Obama, who admitted to being a thug, who got into fights, indulged in heavy drinking and using marijuana and even cocaine, which he called “substances that weren’t always legal,“ never faced criticism on his way to the White House.

-“I was a thug,” a “mischievous child”

-“I got into fights.”

-“I drank and did–and consumed substances that weren’t always legal.”

-“I might have drank a six-pack in an hour before going back to class”

Michael W. Chapman, writing for CNS News compares Brett Kavanaugh’s beer drinking to Barack Obama’s excesses, that Obama cockily brags about and which never became an issue during his presidential campaign. The actual issue for Kavanaugh —- a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit since 2006 —- has nothing to do with him, his unquestioned integrity or his impartial adherence to the law. He has been targeted because the far left is still reeling in disbelief that scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton lost in 2016. The contemptible treatment he and his family have endured is based in anti-Trumpism. The adherents to this new mob-mentality dogma are fanatical, extremist zealots who have no sense of rationality.

This morning’s headlines reporting the lowest unemployment numbers since 1969 and President Trump’s soaring 51% approval rating —- dwarfing Obama’s at the same point in his presidency —- are of no consequence to the those who believe in mob rule. The rest of us rejoice in the stellar news.

Jeff Flake exits senate like a goon

August 23, 2018

As a parting shot before he’s replaced, Flake joins Dem, backs amendment restricting Pres. Trump’s security clearance powers 

On his way out the door after a single, petulant senate term, Jeff Flake can’t contain his unbridled contempt for the duly elected, Republican President of the United States. 

It was Flake’s repeated zingers lobbed at President Trump, causing Flake’s approval numbers to sink to a low of 18% that persuaded him to remove himself from the reelection arena rather than face a humiliating defeat.

But the aura of being in the spotlight, even for negative reasons, is simply too compelling for the arrogant Flake to resist. So he is doing what he does best, conspiring with the Dims in his relentless desire to damage President Trump.

The latest gambit in Flake’s flaky arsenal has him joining with Virginia Democrat Sen. Mark Warner in co-sponsoring an amendment to the senate appropriations bill which Warner filed Monday. Warner, the Vice Chair of the U.S. Intelligence Committee, shows little of what the title implies, as he falls on his partisan sword in an effort to humiliate the president. Flake, never regarded as a brain trust, is an all too willing accomplice.

It should be remembered, Flake was a close associate of Barack Obama, playing not only as a regular on his basketball team, but traveling with him to Cuba, his favorite communist regime and Kenya, and personally introducing Obama’s lame-duck U.S. Supreme Court nominee Democrat Merrick Garland to what he hoped would be confirming senators. Fortunately that effort fell flat and newly elected President Trump was able to appoint Republican Neil Gorsuch to the high court.

The Flake/Warner duo is now floating an amendment seeking to prevent President Trump from revoking security clearances in what these never Trumpers feel is political retribution. In this Twitter exchange, Flake and Warner compliment one another on their actions to constrain President Trump.

“Pleased to cosponsor this amendment. Granting/revoking security clearances should not be a political exercise,” Flake whose term is screeching to a halt, wrote on Twitter.

Here is Warner heaping praise on Flake, while denigrating the President of the United States.

Warner is a Democrat. Flake does a convincing impersonation of being one.


Fake news lemmings leap off Boston Globe’s cliff

August 17, 2018

Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic did the Globe‘s bidding

Following in lockstep with the far left Boston Globe, what was reported as approximately 300 national newspapers ran editorials Thursday, condemning President Trump’s view that much of what is reported about him, his family and his administration is “fake news.”

This truth called for an in-unison reactionary response to what have been relentless attacks based on contrivances of Russian collusion and the supposedly vile acts of separating children from their illegal invader parents who were being held as they awaited adjudication. Such separation takes place in courtrooms across America each and every day as criminal parents are held awaiting sentencing or are actually incarcerated.  In the instances of illegal border crossers being held, the policy dates back several administrations — crescendoing during the terms of Barack Obama. But leftist Obama was beloved by the press, and was given a pass on detainments, which were not covered during his administration.

And right on cue the U.S. Senate unanimously passed this Resolution implicitly condemning President Donald Trump’s “attacks on the press” — coordinated to coincide with Thursday’s lemming leap. It was the brainchild of two lockstep liberals — Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) who veer off the radical reservation, quoting conservative Ronald Reagan. Though not specifically naming President Trump, the resolution declared that “the press is not the enemy of the people,” as the president has stated when the facts were undeniable.

The Boston Globe claims the president’s assessment aims to undermine trust in the press and threatens First Amendment protections. Of course, limitations exist even there as observed by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes — who in 1919 drew the line at “(falsely) shouting fire in a crowded theater.”

President Trump responded to the Globe’s editorial Thursday morning, with a tweet: “The Globe is in COLLUSION with other papers on free press.”  He added, “The press is FREE to write and say anything it wants, but much of what it says is FAKE NEWS.”

The San Francisco Chronicle, among the nation’s most liberal newspapers, used this editorial to assert its independence from the Globe’s gaggle of mindless cohorts. The editorial page editor did not have a pro-Trump epiphany, but refused to follow the Boston Globe’s tyrannical goose-step.

 Ditto the liberal Los Angeles Times, no fan of President Trump, which wrote its editorial board “cherish(es) our independence.”

There is no such spirit of independence at The AZ Republic. Editorial page editor Phil Boas fell right in line with the group-think lemmings, who are unable to comprehend that Americans overwhelmingly elected Donald Trump president and his approval numbers continue to rise as his policies gain acclaim.


Dr. Steve Ferrara: Best choice for U.S. Rep. in CD 9

July 30, 2018

Moses Sanchez is the sole Republican running for Phoenix Mayor

Not long ago local radio talk show co-host and author Seth Liebsohn retired from the Seth and Chris Show to run for Congress in Arizona’s Congressional District 9, The duo’s afternoon drive time political program provided name ID to Leibsohn, giving him a boost as the campaign took off. The soaring trajectory didn’t last long. An entirely avoidable snafu occurred that derailed the short-lived campaign.

Now Liebsohn is endorsing another Republican in the race. Steve Ferrara, MD, a political fresh face, confidently identifying himself as a conservative on his website.

Dr. Ferrara, is a military veteran and medical doctor with a compelling personal story. Deployed into combat in Afghanistan he transformed combat casualty care by pioneering life and limb saving endovascular surgical techniques on the battlefield. His work history also placed him on Capitol Hill, providing extraordinary background for the CD 9 race.

Ferrara and his wife, Elizabeth, an active duty Navy Captain, are the parents of two teenage children.

Former Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, a liberal political opportunist who initially filed to run for secretary of state, recently resigned in order to run for congress. Incredibly egotistical, in 2017 he actually warned the President of the United States to “stay out of my city!“ as reported by AZ Family Channel 5. Undeterred, Trump came and addressed a huge, supportive crowd.

Democrat Stanton, a known tyrant who callously disregards the voices of city residents, pulled a costly fast one as he exited the mayor’s office, insuring votes from the La Raza open borders crowd, by gifting them $2.4 million in taxpayer funds. Known for supporting unpopular issues, Stanton even lied about lifting the oppressive food tax as he gave large “retention bonuses” to city employees. When first elected in 2011, he received a congratulatory call from the overjoyed duo, Barack Obama and Janet Napolitano.

The Lego-building-block-shaped district cuts a swath through central Phoenix making its way through Tempe and South Scottsdale, west Mesa, northwestern Chandler and areas of southeast Phoenix including the Ahwatukee district (Map here)

Moses Sanchez, another political newcomer, is the lone Republican in the Phoenix Mayor’s race, As usual, it’s bloated with Democrats, though the council and mayor run under a bogus “nonpartisan” guise. All we know about him is on his campaign website. Mayoral candidates typically don’t make the rounds of Republican district meetings because the city is deep blue in the red state of Arizona. The last Republican elected  mayor of the nation’s fifth largest city was a 1994 GOP pretender named Skip Rimsza.

As a young boy, along with his parents and sister, Sanchez immigrated to the U.S. from Panama. A Navy veteran of 21 years, including a tour of duty in Afghanistan, he continues to serve in the reserves. He graduated college with an MBA in Business Management, owns a small business and teaches in the community college system. Moses and his Arizona native wife Maria Manriquez M.D., live in Ahwatukee.


Egomaniacal Jeff Flake stages anti-Trump tantrum

July 20, 2018

Trump Derangement Syndrome afflicts AZ’s embarrassing Republicrat

Jeff Flake, unable to run for reelection due to staggeringly low polling numbers among his home state Republicans, has instead set his sights on becoming Arizona’s embarrassment. He began his descent with a 140-page pamphlet masquerading as a book, sticky-fingering the title directly from that of Barry Goldwater’s 1960 iconic book, ‘Conscience of a Conservative,’ which described the fundamentals of conservatism. Though Flake pilfered the title, he never actually comprehended conservatism.  He knew the word started with the letter “C” and was multi-syllabic, but confused ‘conservatism’ with ‘contrariness.‘

Showboating is the not too bright Flake’s stock in trade.  Emboldened by the attention he’s generated, McCain’s doppelganger Jeff Flake plows ahead. The left-wing networks — notably ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN and their ilk, are ready repositories for his hateful spews directed at President Donald Trump. Having an “R” after his name, no matter how misplaced the designation is, makes him a valuable tool in their ongoing scheme to denigrate and destabilize the president.

Flake is noted for flashing his inappropriately placed grin, ever mindful of giving his capped teeth a workout. His bleach-streaked hair is receding, but stiffly coiffed. Lies flow out of his mouth with the same intensity as a spewing, fiery, lava eruption.

His latest assault follows President Trump’s comments at a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Flake took to the senate floor declaring Trump’s remarks verged on treason. “The president let down the free world by giving aid and comfort to an enemy of democracy,” he said. “In so doing, he dimmed the light of freedom ever so slightly in our own country.” Though not explicitly calling the president a traitor, his intent was clear, since Article III, Sec. 3 of the U.S. Constitution says treason consists of giving “aid and comfort” to America’s enemies.’

Was it traitorous when Flake accompanied then-President Barack Obama to grovel at the feet of Raul Castro, Cuba’s communist dictator? Where were the aggrieved pundits then?

Flake, whose most significant job before feeding at the public trough was in the 1990s when he and his wife lived in the African nation of Namibia, as he worked as a registered foreign agent, opening D.C. doors for Rossing Uranium, a mining company that is among the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel —- and partially owned by Iran. National Journal’s exposé during his initial congressional campaign stated, “Flake’s little-known time in the influence industry stands in contrast to his carefully cultivated image as a Washington outsider.”

Now as his congressional career screeches to a halt, he devotes his time to joining with the Trump-hating Democrats. The latest Rasmussen polling shows Congress holds a 15% approval rating. President Trump polls at 44%, with 31% strongly approving of his performance.

Those crickets you hear chirping? That’s the sound emanating from AZ GOP chairman Jonathan Lines, refusing once again to rein in the party’s embarrassment. Flake’s despicable antics are particularly damaging to Republican candidates approaching the upcoming elections. They also insult Republican voters —  nationwide. Lines apparently doesn’t care.


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.


Kyrsten Sinema’s devious metamorphosis

July 12, 2018

Political chameleon works to dupe voters

Kyrsten Sinema is running for the U.S. Senate in Arizona. The Grand Canyon State has two senate slots without viable incumbents. First-termer Jeff Flake withdrew from a reelection bid, due to embarrassingly low 18% approval ratings. Gravely ill octogenarian John McCain, irresponsibly clings to the reins of power, though he has not been seen in public since last year. The two men are open border RINOs. Democrat Sinema equally weak on border security, is far more complex.

Like a magician, she has slickly conjured up a new persona. Gone is the frequent visitor to the Obama White House who boasted about being the first bisexual elected to Congress when she was elected to represent AZ’s 9th Congressional District in 2012. Raised LDS, she is now an acknowledged atheist, who refused to take her oath of office with her hand on the Bible. She was beaten in that record by Muslim convert  U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), who took his oath on the Quran, reputedly owned by Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson purchased a copy to better understand the mindset of the Muslim Barbary pirates who were capturing American ships and holding cargo, crews and kidnapped passengers, frequently enslaved, for ransom.

Sinema, obscuring her extremist background behind a newly softened and ‘Independent’ facade, is doing her best to hide her radically leftist past. Even the word “Democrat” is missing from her ads and signs.

In her latest campaign ad, titled “Work Together,“ she declares herself the adult in the room who works across the aisle, warmly advising Arizonans to butt out after the votes are counted. They “shouldn’t have to worry about what’s happening in Washington. They should just get up in the morning, take care of their families go to work…and (inaudible). It’s our job to make sure we are we are working for them, not against them,” she says of Congress.

In our recent Mother’s Day post, we inserted a memory jogger about Sinema’s foul-mouthed deprecation of stay-at-home Moms:

An ardent supporter of same-sex marriage, she mockingly blasted women who devote themselves to their families rather than working outside the home as “leeches.” Her foul-mouthed comment was: “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f**k are we really talking about here?” Following the spirit of unity Sinema now claims to embrace, she derided conservatives as “Neanderthals.”

Having previously ran and lost as a Green Party candidate, Sinema has carefully recrafted her image. Don’t be conned. Sinema is still the same Marxist who sent May Day and Cinco de Maya greetings through ads placed in the Communist Party newspaper, People’s Weekly World, as reported in 2012 by researcher Trevor Louden on Breitbart News.

Her Senate ads are the work of professional handlers and script writers. Changeling Sinema can run, but she can’t hide.

SRAZ joins these conservatives in endorsing Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate. Her defining principles are clearly stated. She will provide a much needed senate vote for President Trump.

*Since this post was written, Martha McSally won the Republican primary and will be facing off against Sinema.
