Sexual predator Bill Clinton: MIA

December 14, 2017

USA Today, the failing Gannett, Inc. parent company filler stuffed inside the anorexic Arizona Republic has its bias on full display this morning. The 12.14.17 edition has an online headline differing from the one that subscribers receive, blasting, “Americans ready to take action against harassment.” The layout of the accompanying photo also differs, depicting now jobless sexual predators Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Kevin Spacey and Al Franken Their photos are accompanied by an enlarged center shot of President Donald Trump. In the online version all photos are the same size. Regardless of photo size, however, the message is clear: President Trump needs to be ousted. He was picked up on tape during the campaign discussing women with a male companion. He was overwhelmingly elected, beating back scandal-plagued Hillary to the shock of liberals who regarded her as a sure thing.

Bill Clinton, during his presidency, was impeached for lying and suborning perjury from his associates after it was revealed that he had a sexual relationship with a young female White House intern.  His photo is mysteriously missing from the USA Today front page lineup.

The leftwing, Hillary-endorsing newspaper thinks we all are suffering from amnesia. Our minds are clear. We are Republicans, represented by the elephant, noted for its long memory.

The same newspaper also carries an intentionally divisive headline, “GOP tax cut gets sweeter for rich.” Never mentioned is “the rich” are America’s job creators. Before they were “rich,” they took the risks, did without and  worked the long hours to keep their dream afloat. Through their efforts, they provided others the opportunity to own homes and cars, educate their children and live the American Dream.  Now these same entrepreneurs are ridiculed. Barack Obama, a former “community activist,” who spent his career at the public trough, told them, “You didn’t build that.”

We’ve been conned on “tax reform”

December 3, 2017

Republicans were so enthralled that President Trump was finally able to achieve a victory getting his signature tax reform measure passed, that we failed to see the big picture.

This was far more than a tax break for middle-income families, a simplification of the onerous federal tax filing, a repeal of the Obamacare mandate forcing Americans to buy health insurance, and a means of creating a level playing field for businesses, enabling them to return their off shore operations to the U.S. to provide jobs for American workers.

The senators were so proud of their 479-page bill, they voted on it in the dead of Saturday night when no one was looking. HR 1 passed by a 51 to 49 margin.

Tucked in among a limitation on wagering losses, repeal of deduction for alimony payments, repeal of the deduction for lobbying expenses,  dealing with rum excise taxes in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, the myriad “striking” this and “inserting” that, is the crème de la crème means of expanding the Democrat party —-  those alleging they were brought into the U.S. by their illegal alien parents when they were children. There is no means of verifying their claims, but their supporters don’t care about authentication. David Inserra, writing for Heritage Foundation has compiled an excellent analysis on the topic, noting that amnesty provides an incentive for more lawlessness.

Democrats and their mirror image Republicrats have said they won’t support a measure that doesn’t provide a pathway to citizenship for nearly a million so-called “Dreamers” in the country under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, illegally put in place (brief video) by Barack Obama, who admits he had no authority to do so.

Our antenna should have been raised when Trump-hating John McCain and Jeff Flake voted in the affirmative. Amnesty for illegals is the glue that binds them.

Did you know that every single individual tax cut contained in the Senate bill is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2025? There is no permanence attached. Even if President Trump is elected to a second term, this date is outside of that time frame.

Pay attention, This deceptive bill is now headed to the House.


Jeff Flake does the expected: Supports Democrat

November 15, 2017

SRAZ has covered the suspiciously timed allegations aimed at former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, now running for the U.S. Senate in that state.

On Monday, Jeff Flake, who opted out of his own senate race in Arizona after being faced with the reality of abysmal polling numbers, gratuitously jumped into the fray, lodging his own assault on Roy Moore.

“Just to be clear,“ Flake tweeted, “if the choice is between Roy Moore and a Democrat, I would run to the polling place to vote for the Democrat.”

This is not abhorrent behavior. The aptly named Flake, it should be remembered, escorted Merrick Garland through the halls of the U.S. Senate, introducing Obama’s lame duck choice for the vacant seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, as he attempted to garner votes for the Democrat‘s confirmation. Had he been successful, the dramatic leftward lurch of the high court, would have had irrevocable negative consequences. 

Fortunately, though much to Flake’s dismay, Donald Trump was elected president. He nominated Tenth Circuit Appellate Judge Neil Gorsuch who was confirmed to fill the seat made available by the unexpected death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.

Amnesty supporter Jeff Flake has long confused the two political parties and what they stand for. He’s had his snout in the public trough so long, he’s unable to discern the stark differences. They each have platforms, which he obviously has never taken the time to review.


D.R.E.A.M. Act morphs into dreamy amnesty, Part II

November 8, 2017

Illegal’s impossible to verify claims set stage for nightmare rather than dream

If you’re looking for support of amnesty or full-blown citizenship for illegal aliens who have invaded the United States, The Periódico de la República de Arizona (AZ Republic newspaper) never disappoints. The editorial board would feature this issue on a daily basis if other national and local priorities didn’t occasionally raise their pesky heads.

The most recent foray comes packaged as a demand to congress. “Enough politics. Pass the Dream Act now.” The only item missing is a declarative exclamation point. Let’s begin with the soft word “Dream” contrived to induce warm sympathetic responses to what is now estimated to be about a million illegals claiming they were brought here as young children by their invader parents.  There is no way to accurately verify their claims. The Dream Act is toothless and requires incomprehensible naiveté on the part of those being asked to condone its provisions.

There is no need for SRAZ to reinvent the wheel where this Democrat Party expansion lunacy is concerned. For the best response, we’re reprising a previous post written after the Nov. 2016 presidential election, but prior to Donald Trump‘s inauguration. Please  reacquaint yourself with these truths:

Once upon a time — in 2001 — we first heard of something known as the D.R.E.A.M. Act. The acronym stood for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors. It was introduced as S.1291. The 2002 bill was drafted before the speech police ruled the words “illegal” and “alien” unacceptable, so they were used extensively throughout the bill.

The D.R.E.A.M. Act was a liberal dream come true, a warm and fuzzy piece of legislation lacking any means of verification while permanently swelling the ranks of the Democrat Party.

Those applying for the gift of U.S. citizenship need only affirm they were 16 years of age or younger when they initially entered the United States and are currently 35 years of age or younger. They have to declare that they have been persons of good moral character since initially being brought to the U.S. as children by their parents — illegally. Verifying how many came as babes in arms or ably propelled themselves over the border last year at age 34 is impossible to substantiate.

Along the way those hoping to access the overly generous provisions of the D.R.E.A.M. Act, simply became known by the sympathy provoking term, “Dreamers.” They are no longer “alien minors,” but merely those requiring compassion. There are consequences to this massive scale manipulation and the victims are not the illegals, but our own American citizen children.

The so-called “Dreamers” represent a dual assault on law-abiding, taxpaying American citizens and legal immigrants, since public universities grant illegals in-state tuition. American parents who send their children to out-of-state colleges have to pay higher tuition than illegals.

Most importantly, this scam results in illegals taking the limited number of spaces available for students at public universities, crowding out deserving American students and eventually competing with them in the job market.

Any illegal who claims they entered the U.S. before they were 16 years old and have lived here for at least five years can gain legal residence and ultimately citizenship merely by graduating high school, attending two years of college or entering the military. But even those requirements can be waived if they would cause “hardship.”

The biggest winners of this reckless lunacy will be the millions of illegals whose status is legitimized, and universities striving to enhance their numbers of Hispanic undergrads to 25 percent in order to qualify for a $1 billion fund set up by the Department of Education forHispanic Serving Institutions.” Over a dozen Arizona schools are on the notorious list.

President-elect Donald Trump has stated he will terminate DACA, (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), an executive action signed into law by Obama in 2012. It provides an exemption from deportation and a renewable two-year work permit. 

Let’s be clear. ‘Dreamers’ are dreaming of one thing: Stealth Amnesty. They are being aided and abetted by the Arizona Board of Regents and the Phoenix Union High School District, funded by citizen’s tax dollars while creating impediments to our own kids.


Race baiting Dem Ralph Northam elected VA Governor

November 7, 2017

We’ve all seen the despicable campaign ad depicting a driver in his pickup truck, flying a confederate flag, with a ‘Gillespie for Governor‘bumper sticker on the back. The truck sports a ‘Don’t tread on Me” license plate as it careens down a roadway, appearing to try to mow down minority children.

In a race that was neck-in-neck as the returns first came in, Ed Northam, an ally of Barack Obama, pulled ahead in the Northern Virginia outskirts of Washington, DC. after shamelessly linking Gillespie with white supremacists. The final unofficial results are Northam 53% to Gillespie’s 45%.

Titled “American Nightmare,” the ad, released by the left-wing group Latino Victory Fund has been airing through Election Day on Spanish-language stations in key Democrat strongholds.

Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder’s group the National Democratic Redistricting Committee has pumped over a $1 million into the Virginia governor’s race to ensure Democrat’s redistricting efforts in advance of the 2020 Census.

Let’s hope Republicans are paying rock solid attention and are engaged in more worthwhile pursuits than fighting President Trump, as Arizona’s pathetic excuses for U.S. Senators are doing.


Traitor Bergdahl given slap on the wrist for desertion

November 4, 2017

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl who voluntarily deserted his post in Afghanistan in 2009, has received what amounted to a slap on the wrist for his abominable actions.  Despite the fact that Bergdahl caused serious harm to the lives of his fellow soldiers who went searching for him, military judge, Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance, has only demoted him and given him a dishonorable discharge. Bergdahl could have faced life in prison. The death penalty hasn’t been imposed for desertion since the 1940’s.

Barack Obama, president at the time, arranged a prisoner swap in 2014, to gain the release of deserter Bergdahl from Taliban captivity, approving an exchange of five high ranking Taliban militants being held at Guantanamo Bay. Obama’s decision triggered an intense backlash from soldiers who view Bergdahl as a traitor for abandoning his post.

Who can forget Obama’s meeting with Bergdahl’s parents (video) in the White House Rose Garden, where the traitor’s father, sporting an Islamic beard, spoke an Arabic message to his son and was hugged by Obama?

According to the Articles of the Military Code of Justice (UCMJ) unauthorized absence from the military falls under three articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ): Article 85, Desertion; Article 86, AWOL; and Article 87, Missing Movement. Of the three, desertion is the most serious offense.

 UCMJ is a federal law enacted by Congress that governs the military justice system. Its provisions are contained in United States Code, Title 10, Chapter 47.


Flake left the senate because he can’t abide the GOP

October 25, 2017

This morning’s issue of the Arizona Republic is a multi-page paean to the man we have often characterized as Jeff the Flake. The Hillary Clinton endorsing newspaper heralds him on the front page with an oversize  photo and overlayed with his quote, “I will not be complicit.” The jump pages include his speech and a dose of fawning by his mentor John McCain. There is no denying the hard fact that throughout his career Flake has shown himself to be “complicit” —- with Democrats and against conservative positions.

The personification of sanctimonious arrogance, the always preening Jeff Flake has been an utter disappointment to Arizona Republicans. He held closed door or invitation only town halls because Arizonans overwhelmingly wanted to see a border wall built while he was acting in concert with John McCain, two other RINOs and a gaggle of the most liberal senate Democrats on the “Gang of 8”amnesty bill. Few have forgotten his 2016 effort to pass “bipartisan” gun control legislation, his collusion with Barack Obama over a nuclear deal with the terror-sponsoring, American-hating rogue nation of  Iran, or the implementation of his long held desire to lift the U.S. embargo on travel to Communist Cuba — another deal made with his buddy Obama.

Then there was  the shocking spectacle of Jeff Flake taking Barack Obama’s lame duck Supreme Court nominee Democrat Merrick Garland through the halls of the senate in an attempt to garner votes for him. With the election of President Trump,  conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch was appointed to the high court to fill the seat previously held by Justice Antonin Scalia.

There have been numerous other betrayals and glib attempts at trickery, all with his ever present smirk plastered on his face. He belittled GOP nominee  Donald Trump who won the Republican nomination over 16 other primary candidates, declaring, “He can’t and shouldn’t win,” while loudly and repeatedly proclaiming his refused to vote for Trump — putting him squarely in scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton‘s column. He must have choked on his own sputum on Dec. 8, 2016 when the results came in showing Trump was elected President.

Flake’s decision to leave the U.S. Senate is based in the  knowledge he is out of step with Arizona’s voters and  couldn’t win in 2018. 

Fortunately, conservatives have an excellent candidate in Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician, military wife, and former two-term state senator who spent 4 years burnishing her conservative credentials in the Arizona legislature. She also supports the President of the United States.
