Narcissist Jeff Flake continues to scam Republicans

November 30, 2018

Though nearly out the senate door due to embarrassing 18% approval ratings in his home state —- precluding even an arrogant egotist like the aptly named Flake from seeking reelection —- he nevertheless continues to act like a petulant child. By Spring of 2017, he was unable to garner enough supporters to fill a small room.

Lame duck Flake’s overriding obsession is hatred-driven. And the object of this scurrilous intensity is President Donald Trump, who is keeping his promises to the American people.  Unable to acknowledge the numerous accomplishments of the man he predicted would never be elected, Flake throws tantrums and engages in reckless, destructive actions. 

Flake has now chosen to act on his threats of stalling confirmations of the well-vetted federal judicial candidates, including six conservative Trump nominees to the Circuit Court and 15 others named to the District Courts. Flake did no such thing while his travel and basketball playing buddy Barack Obama occupied the Oval Office. Flake even worked double-time to get Obama’s last minute U.S. Supreme Court Democrat appointee, Merrick Garland, confirmed —- a task at which he fortunately failed. His latest foolish issue is having confirmations tied to a vote on a bill to protect Robert Mueller’s baseless Russia investigation, which has produced not a single shred of evidence implicating the president or his family. Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell has called the bill, “a solution in search of a problem,“ although that logic fails to deter Flake.

Jeff Flake, like his mentor John McCain, had no trouble using the Republican party to get elected. They talked a good game while campaigning, but once safely back on the banks of the Potomac, they veered left, frequently colluding on issues such as amnesty for illegals with the most radical D.C. liberals. McCain forged alliances with Ted Kennedy, Dick Durbin and Charles Schumer, among others. Flake is partnering on this legislation with Delaware Democrat Chris Cooms. Flake’s neurotic loathing is so insidious President Trump’s historic achievements, such as being the first U.S. President in nearly 70 years to meet with the leader of North Korea and sign a treaty to denuclearize the volatile Korean peninsular —- are of no consequence to the chronically angry, self-absorbed, show-boating Flake.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, on which Flake is a member, canceled a Thursday vote on over 20 federal judicial nominations The Judiciary panel, with a slim 11-10 GOP majority, doesn’t have sufficient votes to advance nominees without his support. The new congress will be sworn in Jan 3, 2019.

It’s difficult to imagine that Kyrsten Sinema, the leftist Democrat who will replace Flake in the U.S. Senate, could be any worse.

Tear gas? Dem hypocrisy, double standard, exposed

November 29, 2018

The mainstream media would have us believe that President Trump is nothing short of a demonic ogre for allowing tear gas to be used at the border to inhibit rock and bottle throwing illegal aliens from storming our sovereign border.

What a bad guy!  What a corrupt administration!

Yet according to data from the Department of Homeland Security first reported in The Washington Times, the identical tear-gas agent that the Trump administration is taking heat for deploying against a border mob last weekend is actually used fairly frequently — including more than once a month during the later years of President Barack Obama’s administration.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has used 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile, or CS, since 2010, and deployed it 26 times in fiscal 2012 and 27 times in 2013. It was still being used in 2016, Obama’s final full year in office.

Border authorities also use another agent, pepper spray, frequently — including a decade-high record of 151 instances in 2013, also under Pres. Obama. Pepper spray, officially known as Pava Capsaicin, was used 43 times in fiscal year 2018, according to the CBP numbers.

The data poses a challenge to the current leftwing outrage over the Border Patrol’s use of tear gas Sunday to prevent a frenzied horde of illegals from breaking through sections of old border fence in California.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, questioned the skewed reporting in the strongest of terms, asking where the critics were when tear gas was deployed during Obama‘s presidency.

This policy that we use was an Obama-written policy and it was used in 2013 at the same port of entry,” he told CNN, wondering in particular about the intense media interest now versus then.

Critics, including Latin American leaders, immigrant-rights advocates and congressional Democrats, have said use of tear gas is “un-American.”

“Un-American”? Maybe Obama was born in Kenya, after all?

Watch as Brandon Judd exposes the facts of the border situation in an interview on The Daily Caller TV:


Facts re: judicial order restricting Trump’s border security 

November 24, 2018

Those of us who pay attention are aware of the Nov.19, judicial decision resulting in a nationwide restraining order barring President Donald Trump from denying asylum to caravans of illegal aliens who cross over the southern border between legitimate points of entry.

After advocates for the thousands of foreign invaders from Central America did some judge shopping, they found their ideal black-robed decider on the United States District Court for the Northern District of California,

How much do any of us know about Judge Jon Steven Tigar? He fits the metric for an Obama appointee. The former San Francisco public defender graduated from UC Berkeley School of Law. And as an immigrant himself, his bias is clearly with  the illegal border crossers. The difference is, he arrived legally from London, England, where his father was a law professor. But when there is an opportunity to constrain the Republican President of the United States, the lines predictably blur.

Michael Cutler, writing for FrontPagemag provides an in-depth report in which he concludes the judge’s ruling “ignores the Constitution, the 9/11 Commission Report and common-sense.”  Cutler’s impressive bio and previous articles can be read here.

Federal judge blocks Trump’s asylum ban on illegal aliens,“ is highly recommended reading to bring us up to speed on the federal judiciary’s attempts to hamstring President Trump’s efforts to provide security to America’s citizens and expect our sovereign border to be respected.

Previous generations of immigrants came legally — often processed through Ellis Island. They were eager to learn English, acclimate and became proud Americans taking our nation‘s history as their own. Today we are told to “Press One for Spanish.” Using California as a template, these facts from the California Department of Education’s Language Census: Fall 2017 stand out:

A total of 2,637,412 students (English Learners and Fluent English Proficient) speak a language other than English in their homes. This number represents about 42.3 percent of the state’s public school enrollment.

Americanization is now a contemptible goal. We are no longer a “melting pot,” but rather a “salad bowl,” of distinct ethnicities where diversity, rather than unity, is celebrated. Hyphenated Americans have become the norm. And a single Obama-appointed judge like Jon S. Tigar wields more power than our elected president.


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.
