America First “unpatriotic, half-baked nationalism,” says McCain

Ailing award recipient can’t resist taking potshots at President Trump

The National Constitution Center reports Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) was awarded its Liberty Medal on Monday. Barack Obama’s former Vice President Joe Biden presented the award to his “longtime friend” McCain. The medal, awarded annually since 2006, is “given to men and women of courage and conviction who have strived to secure the blessings of liberty to people the world over.”

That description would certainly fit the contemptible and jealous ASS. He even deprecates and works to purge conservative elected Republicans from the party under whose banner he has chosen run.

During the ceremony McCain, who is suffering from an aggressive form of brain cancer, stated:

“To fear the world we’ve organized and led for 3/4s of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain the last, best hope of earth, for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism, cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”

This is classic McCain, using any occasion, even one intended to honor him, to underhandedly jab President Donald Trump — who won the presidency that will forever elude 81-year-old ASS — with the slogan “Make America Great Again.”

On its website the Center states that seven recipients of the medal have subsequently won the Nobel Peace Prize. Proving the Peace Prize is purely political, within months of being elected Barack Obama was a questionable recipient, having accomplished nothing of significance other than being the first black American president. He joined Palestinian terrorist leader Yasser Arafat, who won the Peace Prize in 1994. Arafat was better known for orchestrating the PLO bombing of Israeli school buses, instituting an ongoing reign of terror and colluding in directing the brutal massacres of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany.

In 2015, Geir Lundestad the former Nobel Secretary related that he regretted Obama’s award, which he said raised questions, even among Obama’s supporters. ASS was an Obama supporter even as he was the Republican nominee challenging Obama.

Trump haters failing & the dire consequences of Dem govt control

October 15, 2017

Today’s headline might seem disjointed, but stay with the post to its conclusion. There’s a message here.

Americans are tiring of Trump bashers and letting them know it. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that George Lopez was booed off the stage at a gala benefiting juvenile diabetes in Denver, over an anti-Donald Trump routine that riled the crowd.

Marshall Bruce Mathers III, a high school dropout, rising from a troubled background to a mega star white rapper in a hoodie renaming himself after small candy coated chocolates, tells his fans in the crudest of terms, (Video) that they need to chose between him and President Trump. He stages his performance in a Detroit parking garage backed by a contingent of actual blacks, for the BET Hip Hop Awards.

Where better than the crime infested and devastated city of Detroit, run into ruin for years by liberals? Detroit — once an industrial titan known as “Motor City,” and famous for Motown music — now has one of the highest murder rates in the nation.

The degradation of Detroit is explained in DiscoverTheNetworks.org which has done extensive research on the city, culminating with,How the Democrats Destroyed Detroit,” written by Arnold Ahlert.

What is noteworthy is that Detroit has been under the control of Democrat mayors and city councils since 1962 — over half a century. Like Detroit, the City of Phoenix operates under the political contrivance of “nonpartisan” municipal elections — an ideal way for Democrats to hide their identity. And like Detroit, Blue Phoenix sits within the Red State of Arizona. Donald Trump carried Michigan in the 2016 presidential race, masterfully flipping 12 counties that previously supported Obama.

A Trump-like candidate is desperately needed to run for Phoenix mayor. We need more than a McCain operative like losing Wes Gullet to rescue Arizona’s union controlled capitol city. As of the recent Special Election held after Republican Councilman Bill Gates resigned to run for the Board of Supervisors and was succeeded by liberal Debra Stark, the Phoenix City Council is now locked in a Democrat stronghold.

Phoenix’ leftist Mayor Greg Stanton is resigning to pursue the CD 9 U.S. House seat, being vacated by liberal U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema as she challenges vulnerable RINO Jeff Flake.  

It might seem we need a scorecard to keep up with the political musical chairs. We don’t. Just remember Conservative Dr. Kelli Ward is the one to support in the 2018 Arizona Senate race.


America has a do-something president

October 14, 2017

James Buchanan was, rightly or wrongly, known as the “do nothing” president. With President Donald J. Trump, we have just the opposite, a president who is intent on fulfilling his promises to the American people that won him the 2016 election.

With steadfast determination, President Trump has been following through with his “”Make America Great Again” agenda. The large crowds he continues to generate as he travels the nation, are a testament to his ability to hold his supporters close.

This rankles the leftist media in unimaginable ways. On his to-do list are repealing and replacing Obamacare, which was shot down by the spiteful John McCain, who can’t get over the fact that Donald Trump achieved what he never will — the Presidency of the United States. USA Today, the free hotel throwaway, headlined its sneering report, “Piece by Piece, Trump tries to unravel Obamacare,”noting that the “president acts on his own.” 

Astute news followers will recall that such a complaint was never lodged against Barack Obama, who lived in a cocoon of presidential executive orders, bypassing congress whenever he felt constrained. McCain claims he voted in opposition to President Trump’s healthcare reform — with an obviously practiced and intended to shock, Roman emperor Caligula-style thumbs down vote against the gladiator begging for mercy in the arena — for that very reason. Yet McCain remained mute on all of Obama’s unilateral excesses as he ran the government by executive fiat.

The president wants to decertify the disastrous ‘Iran Nuclear Deal.’ entered Into by Barack Obama and his secretary of state, John Kerry — who sweetened the pot with cash infusions in the amount of $1.7 billion to the terrorist sponsoring nation in 2016. They also went against precedent not to be monetarily blackmailed for hostages, paying $400 million the same day Iran agreed to release four American prisoners. The U.S. is supposed to trust Iran’s claim that it will not develop nuclear weapons for at least a decade.

On Thursday the Trump administration said it would stop paying billions of dollars worth of reimbursements to health insurers to compensate them for out-of-pocket health discounts given to 6 million Obamacare customers. Arizonans on the failed system saw a 116 percent increase in premiums this year, the highest spike in the nation.

Addressing the Values Voter Summit an annual conservative conference on Friday, the president received thunderous applause when he noted our nation‘s Judeo-Christian values are under assault. He stated, “saying ‘Merry Christmas’ will be back in style.”

Tax cuts, which benefit the economy, are also on Trump’s agenda. Check out SRAZ’s Friday’s post with an exposé referencing another expected McCain sabotage.

Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) is quite a guy!


Liberal Greg Stanton joins political musical chairs game

October 9, 2017

Beguiled by Washington, political opportunist Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton drops bid for Secretary of State

It’s possible to get a severe case of whiplash trying to keep your eye on the political prize Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton is after.

 The Democrat who is not inclined to being democratic as we’ve pointed out here, here, and here, still has an open campaign for Secretary of State — a sleeper position often the direct route to the governor’s office since it is next in line of ascension if a sitting governor is unable to serve out their term.

But now we see that the ambitious liberal isn’t content waiting for a governor to provide an opening. He’s  announced he’s resigning the top city job and looking directly at D.C., now that Democrat Kyrsten Sinema is bounding from her Congressional District 9 House seat and mounting a challenge to Jeff Flake, John McCain’s doppelganger senate seat-mate. Dr. Kelli Ward is the conservative in the race.

The only discernible activity on Stanton’s Secretary of State page is a payment of $1000 Stanton made to Equality Arizona last November, listed as an expenditure. But there was a method to Stanton’s seemingly madcap donation. EQAZ, as it nicknames itself, lists its mission on its website:

“Each election cycle provides us the important opportunity to help elect candidates who will work to achieve full LGBTQ equality in our state. Helping to elect pro-LGBTQ candidates is one of the most important things we do.”

For an insight into Stanton’s mindset, EQAZ supports “our LGBTQ immigrant population.” which they claim is “too often at high risk for discrimination, isolation, and a lack of access to resources.” The group also opposed the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Liberal Democrat Stanton announced that he was “disappointed” that President Donald Trump plans to rally supporters in mid-August. “’It is my hope that more sound judgment prevails and that he delays his visit,’ Stanton said. In fact, Stanton ludicrously linked the visit and request for the president to “delay his plans” to visit Phoenix “to what he referred to as “the nation still healing from the tragic events in Charlottesville.”

During his campaign for mayor, Greg Stanton was so beholden to then-Firefighters union boss Billy Shields, that when his daughter, Mindy, given a job as Stanton’s treasurer, was charged with embezzling over $77,000 from Stanton’s campaign, lawyer Stanton — who should have known better — tried to have the felony charges dismissed so as not to rile her powerful father. Shields was still angry enough that the crime was reported, to support Stanton’s opponent.

In our January 2013 post,Phoenix Mayor Stanton: An ambitious liberal to watch,” we detailed his commitment to a keeping a sieve-like border as he told mayors of Mexican border cities meeting in D.C.,  “We should never let border security get in the way of the economy.”

We predicted then that Greg Stanton, who was congratulated on his mayoral win via calls from Barack Obama and Janet Napolitano, has higher aspirations.

In March 2013, Stanton blatantly lied about the imposition of a food tax on Phoenix residents. Imagine if this radical liberal with no conscience gains a congressional seat. It was by design not happenstance that Phoenix City elections have notoriously low voter turnouts, timed for the hottest part of the summer when many residents are vacationing. The only announced mayoral candidate is Daniel Valenzuela, another liberal with union roots.

We need a solid Republican to step up and re-take the reins of the nation’s fifth largest city. We’ve been in the liberal abyss far too long.


More gun duplicity from Dems following Vegas massacre

October 6, 2017

In the wake of the murderous rampage that took the lives of 59 concert goers in Las Vegas and wounding over 500 on Sunday, Democrats have reliably rolled out their favorite canard of Second Amendment restrictions which we are assured will curb any future widespread acts of violence. The 2013 Boston Marathon bombing that used pressure cookers, not guns, to murder 3 and mutilate over 260 others, including 16 who lost limbs, must have slipped their minds.

In 2012, SRAZ posted Dem gun hypocrites (photo and video) putting their duplicitous double standards on full display. Republican lawmakers are galvanizing behind legislation that would restrict devices known as bump stocks, that alter semi-automatic weapons turning them into rapid fire automatics. The murderer who shot randomly at the concert attendees did so from the 32nd floor of high-rise hotel directly across from the venue where 22,000 had come to hear county music performers.

NRA leaders Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox issued this joint statement, reasonably including these words:

“The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations.” 

Surprisingly, it was the restrictionist Obama administration’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that in 2010 approved the devices, determining that the rapid action components were not weapons. Approved without verification, bump stocks were originally peddled by the Texas manufacturer, Slide Fire, as an assist to persons whose hands have limited mobility.

Its website bills the bump stock as “fun, exciting, and entertaining,” omitting any disability justification.

“The stock has no automatically functioning mechanical parts or springs and performs no automatic mechanical function when installed,” stated this 2010 letter from the ATF signed by John R. Spencer, then-Chief of the Firearms Technology Branch. “Accordingly, we find that the ‘bump-stock’ is a firearm part and is not regulated as a firearm under the Gun Control Act or the National Firearms Act,” Spencer wrote.

Frequently confused Democrat Nancy Pelosi using her muted Harry Reid voice, responded when asked whether the gun bill she’s pushing might represent a slippery slope toward other gun restrictions, Pelosi, in a rare moment of truth, replied,I certainly hope so.

Never forget, that’s the actual end game.


Leftist media with smarter audiences have free rein to revile Trump:

October 3, 2017

Sophisticated and enlightened news consumers lean left, conservatives are dolts

Conclusions reached in a bizarre report by Pew Research Center regarding media coverage of President Trump and the political bent of the audiences they aim for is nothing short of insulting.

A summation of Pew’s assumptions: 

 “News outlets with a right-leaning audience cited fewer types of sources in their reporting, offered more positive and fewer negative evaluations of President Donald Trump and his administration, and had reporters who were less likely to challenge something the president said than outlets whose audience leans to the left or those with a more evenly distributed audience.

Seven-in-ten stories from outlets with a left-leaning audience and 62% from those with a more mixed audience included at least two of nine types of sources evaluated, such as a member of the administration, a member of Congress, or an outside expert. That was true, however, of less than half the stories (44%) from outlets with a right-leaning audience. In particular, outlets whose audience leans right of center were less likely to include Trump and his administration, outside experts or interest groups as sources. They were also about half as likely to include voices from both Democratic and Republican members of Congress (7% of stories vs. 14% for outlets with a left-leaning audience and 15% for outlets with a more mixed audience).”

 Pew did admit that compared with past administrations, coverage of Trump’s early days focused less on policy and was more negative overall. But it ignored the uniformly positive coverage of Barack Obama which occurred from the onset of his presidential candidacy.

Scant coverage was given to Obama’s questionable associations such as his campaign kickoff in the home of former Weather Underground bombers of the NYC police department and DC government buildings, Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn — former fugitives who morphed into respected educators, as could only happen in Chicago. Remorseless years later, Ayers  said, “I don’t regret setting bombs, I feel we didn’t do enough.”

Then there was Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the preacher who officiated at the Obama’s wedding and baptized their daughters. They sat in his black nationalist church for 20 years, listening to him spew race-based hatred.

Either of these associations — and there were many otherswould have brought a screeching halt to other campaigns, but Obama got a pass by his adoring liberal media.

It’s no secret reporters are overwhelmingly liberal. Over a decade ago, the same Pew Research Center released a survey of 547 journalists and news media executives, including 247 who worked for national news organizations. Pew found that the proportion of liberals in the national media had increased over the previous nine years, from 22 percent in 1995 to 34 percent in 2004. Meanwhile, the percentage of conservatives remained minuscule: just four percent in 1995, seven percent in 2004. As for local reporters, liberals dominated conservatives by a nearly two-to-one margin (23 to 12 percent).

Pew also asked journalists to name a news organization that seemed to cover the news from an especially liberal or especially conservative angle. When it came to a liberal news outlet, most of the national journalists were stumped. A fifth regarded the New York Times as liberal; ABC, CBS, CNN and NPR were each named by just two percent. One percent of reporters said NBC was liberal.

But journalists did see ideology at one outlet: “The single news outlet that strikes most journalists as taking a strong ideological stance — either liberal or conservative — is Fox News Channel,” Pew reported. More than two-thirds of national journalists (69 percent) tagged FNC as a conservative news organization, followed by the Washington Times (9 percent) and the Wall Street Journal (8 percent).


U.S. has moral obligation to its citizens to seal the border

September 15, 2017

Normalization, pathway to citizenship, bring out of the shadows are all code words for amnesty

Immigration is a word that is frequently and intentionally misused. The media and liberal politicians have become adept at using  it to describe the invasion of the United States by illegal aliens who have entered our country by stealth.

And those illegal aliens? Consider yourself forewarned. Even the precisely descriptive term “illegal immigrant,“ by edict of Associated Press, is considered verboten. AP says people are not illegal, only actions are. Foreign nationals are no longer aliens.

Concern about illegals in the U.S. has remained steady according to Gallup polling. Fifty-nine percent of Americans say they worry “a great deal” or “a fair amount” about illegal immigration. This level of concern is typical of what Gallup has measured over the past 17 years, apart from a window between 2006 and 2011 when roughly two-thirds of Americans expressed worry. 79 % of Republicans expressed concern as opposed to 48% of Democrats. What those disparities indicate is worthy of exploration.

This 2014 poll from The Polling Company shows overwhelming support among likely voters for significantly lower immigration levels, increased enforcement and an opposition to (then) Pres. Obama’s plan to move forward with an executive action that could grant amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal aliens. 75% of likely voters want to see more enforcement of immigration laws.

According to a newly released Pew Research Center poll, 65% of Mexicans hold negative views of the United States, though they keep flooding across our border — illegally. What’s the likelihood these mostly uneducated illegals will suddenly integrate into our country, or their protesting children staging school walkouts, demonstrations and making demands  — now claiming DACA status — will become proud, assimilated Americans by virtue of an illegal executive order?

This information provides a backdrop to the current discussions surrounding “normalizing” or ultimately gifting citizenship, (despite President Trump’s protestations to the contrary), to what has been described as “about 800,000” impossible to verify claims of those seeking DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.

Breitbart News carries 9 lies about DACA Trump is buying into, It‘s chock full of top quality information.
