Republicans and illegal aliens: A no-win proposition

August 27, 2016

John McCain and Jeff Flake cited as relentless amnesty purveyors

Factoring in “both illegal immigration and legal immigration, the Republican Party is literally bringing in the very people by the millions who will ensure that there is never another conservative President. Has there ever been another political party that has systematically and intentionally destroyed itself the way the Republican Party is doing on amnesty?”

John Hawkins, writing one of his two weekly columns for Townhall, poses that weighty question and others in his latest column, 5 Questions Pro-Amnesty Republicans Never Seem To Answer.” We often hear the words, “It’s a must read.” This column definitely is.

Hawkins calls out John McCain as the “face of amnesty” in the Republican Party, pointing  out he only received 31% of the Hispanic vote during his failed presidential bid. There is no corollary between any Republican promoting amnesty and winning the vote that is deeply embedded with the Democrats. Arizona’s junior senator,Jeff Flake is also mentioned  as an amnesty colluder.  Both McCain and Flake were momentary pre-election border hardliners, only to conspire with RINOs and the most liberal senate Democrats on the Gang of Eight amnesty forgiveness legislation within nanoseconds after the ballots were counted. Hawkins points out that “large amounts of cash” flowing into campaign coffers from the cheap labor profiteers in the business establishment is the driving force.

In 2013 Ann Coulter wrote this commentary, “Hispanicked GOP Elite: They’ll Respect Us In the Morning, facetiously stating, “Don’t anyone tell Marco Rubio, John McCain or Jeff Flake that nearly 80 percent of Hindus voted for Obama, or who knows what they’ll come up with.”

Coulter states, “I understand the interest of business lobbies in getting cheap, unskilled labor through amnesty, but why do Republican officeholders want to create up to 20 million more Democratic voters, especially if it involves flouting the law? Are the campaign donations from the soulless rich more important than actual voters?”

“Without citing any evidence, the Rubio Republicans simply assert that granting 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens amnesty will make Hispanics warm to the GOP.” Coulter correctly notes, “Yes, that’s worked like a charm since Reagan signed an amnesty bill in 1986!”

Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and former two term (two years each) state senator challenging John McCain unequivocally states, we must have a secure border. Ward says, she‘ll “mix the mortar to seal the border.” We believe her! Tuesday is Election Day. It’s time for a change from the decades long McStatus quo. Check out Kelli Ward’s bio and watch the video linked under her name. 


Jeff Flake’s deceit exceeded only by his arrogance

August 25, 2016

The fact that Donald Trump won the GOP nomination over 16 other candidates is of no consequence to Flake

Jeff Flake, a first term U.S. Senator, who previously spent 6 terms in the U.S. House, used the banner of the Republican Party as he barely squeaked into office in 2012 by a mere 3 points. He was helped over the finish line with ample assists from the retiring Sen. Jon Kyl and the eager-to-buck GOP principles, self anointed maverick, John McCain — both of whom taught Flake the value of campaigning to the right and once elected, veering left.

These linked campaign ads show Kyl and McCain each taking their turns being tough on the border. Immediately after the ballots were counted they shepherded amnesty legislation. As a senate candidate, taking a cue from his mentors, Flake drew the wrath of the open borders newspaper, sending the editorialist spinning into apoplectic spasms. It was energy wasted. Following the election, he joined McCain crafting the infamous amnesty-gifting Gang of Eight. Arizona conservatives have had decades to get used to the duplicity, but somehow it still catches many off guard.

Now Jeff Flake is winging it on his own since the 6-year U.S. Senate terms are staggered and McCain is in a tight race against conservative Dr. Kelli Ward forcing him into uncharacteristic silence, as his vicious, out-of-state PACs do his dirty work against her.

So Flake has decided to veer into punditdom, opining Donald Trump, the GOP’s presidential nominee, “can‘t win and shouldn’t win,” the election. The only takeaway from that statement is that Flake will be supporting scandal-plagued leftist Hillary Clinton. SRAZ came to that conclusion in July with this post.

At a Tuesday event at the offices of Allstate Insurance in Tempe, Flake lobbed a barrage of spew at Trump, even disapproving of the way Trump expressed “regret” for some past comments. Flake, of course, remains the ideal in the apology department. When his son Tanner, used offensive racial, anti-Semitic and homophobic slurs on his Twitter account, papa Flake stepped in and publicly apologized for him, letting a teachable moment pass.

Flake got his foot in the political door when U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon honored his term limit pledge and stepped down after three two-year terms. Flake made the same pledge, but the seductive siren call of Washington was too bewitching for him to resist, and he announced that “it was a mistake to limit my terms,” even grinning and declaring, “I lied.” Was that an apology?  Did it meet the standard Flake holds for Trump?

In July we postedSo you think you know Jeff Flake? Think again,” Is it any wonder Flake is rated as one of the nation’s least popular senators? He shares the dishonor with his mentor John McCain.

Though Flake appears to revel in his role as chief Trump hatchet man, those of us who have actual conservative views are appalled at the arrogance Flake exhibits. He needs to be primaried by a conservative when he runs for reelection.


Politically motivated Judge refers Sheriff Arpaio, aides for prosecution?

August 21, 2016

Seemingly vendetta-based action timed to coincide with election

Unable to contain their elation, the crew at the Arizona Republic reported on Saturday with bared teeth and an all cap, declaration of war-sized headline, “CRIMINAL CONTEMPT.” The sense is the exact model of the coverage, including the 7 x 7 inch unflattering photo of Sheriff Joe Arpaio was on ice waiting for the judge’s order. They were showing irritation on May 31, when the newspaper’s testy report was titled, “No ruling yet on criminal charges for Arpaio.”

That moment came on Friday when U.S. District Court Judge G. Murray Snow haughtily wrote:”Criminal contempt serves to vindicate the Court’s authority by punishing the intentional disregard for that authority.” 

 Judge Snow was appointed to the federal bench on the recommendation of Sens. John McCain and Jon Kyl, He was given the fast-track, green light by Democrat Sen. Harry Reid, who announced “all Senators should be aware that this vote will occur very quickly…” Snow was nominated to the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona by President George W. Bush, but without a recorded confirmation vote. This unanimous consent agreement sufficed. Federal judges do not stand for either election or retention. They hold their positions until they decide to retire or are unable to fulfill the duties.

The 32-page Criminal Contempt Order signed Aug. 18, 2016 by Judge G. Murray Snow can be read here. Being forwarded to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for possible criminal contempt charges are Sheriff  Joe Arpaio, his Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan, the MCSO’s former Professional Standards Bureau Captain Steve Bailey, and Arpaio’s former attorney Michele Iafrate.

In May 2015, Breitbart reported on incendiary comments alleged to have been made by Judge Snow’s wife to a friend and overheard in a Valley restaurant. The allegations which were never denied by either the judge or his wife, should have caused Judge Snow to recuse himself from this case. He did not. A motion for recusal was filed, Snow remained on the case.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been the focus of professional agitators and race-baiters who have spent years filing claims against him and loudly protesting outside his office, beating drums, screaming and holding derogatory signs — as they accuse him of racial profiling, a charge he has steadfastly denied. He has complied with previous judicial orders intended to rein in control of the office he  has repeatedly been elected to lead. This contempt charge appears suspiciously timed to coincide with the upcoming election.

Vote for Sheriff Arpaio, a dedicated, career lawman who has always done the job Maricopa County citizens have elected him to do.


Jeff Flake schemed with liberal pal to “turn red states blue” now using issue for fundraising

August 12, 2016

Jeff Flake, who has earned an “F” rating from Conservative Review, and whose Second Amendment restrictionist views are held in contempt by Gun Owners of America, is already prepping for his reelection,sending out fundraising solicitations over a year in advance of the beginning of campaign season.

The subject line of his recent email is peculiar, reading,ICYMI: They want to turn Arizona BLUE.” He goes on to warn that “Hillary Clinton and the Democrats are blitzing Arizona and trying to turn it into another blue state like California!”

Flake is obviously hoping Arizona voters are suffering from chronic memory loss and have forgotten that before he was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2012 — squeaking in by a mere 3 percentage points — Jeff Flake and radical leftist Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) were like-minded amnesty amigos in the U.S. House.

They were so close, in fact, that when the dedicated open borders extremist Gutierrez wrote the piece, “The Numbers Are On Our Side,” for the far-left Progress Illinois, he publicly thanked Jeff Flake by name for his efforts in helping to “turn red states blue.”

Now Flake uses the same slogan with which he had more than a passing relationship, trying to mold it into a conservative money grab.

In this excerpt Gutierrez specifically mentions Jeff Flake:

“”During the 110th Congress, I introduced the only bipartisan, comprehensive immigration bill with my colleague, Congressman Jeff Flake, from Arizona. Our bill would create a system that allows undocumented immigrants to come out of the shadows and work here legally and safely and humanely…It creates a system predicated on family values by developing laws that keep families strong and, most importantly, keeps husbands and wives, parents and children together.

Passing sensible immigration reform is good policy and good politics. So how do we win? We need more engaged progressives who are willing to stand up for what is right. We need labor unions to keep leading the charge. We need grassroots efforts to register immigrants to vote and to turn them out on Election Day. In the end, democracy is about numbers. The side that can count the highest wins. And the numbers are on our side. Hard-working immigrants are turning red states blue.

They are electing leaders from school boards to the U.S. Senate. They are standing up and marching and speaking with one voice. Immigrants will remember on Election Day who heard them, respected them, and fought for them,” says Jeff Flakes’ friend and co-sponsor of amnesty bills, Rep. Luis Gutierrez.”

But in 2011 as a U.S. Senate candidate, the ever slippery Flake morphed into a border hawk which the had the pro-amnesty/open borders Arizona Republic, sputtering out of control  — calling his change of heart on amnesty “jarring” and referring to Flake as a mere politician.”  The newspaper needn’t have gone so apoplectic. Immediately after the votes were counted, he joined his mentor John McCain on a renewed push for amnesty, partnering with the most liberal senate Democrats on the Gang of Eight amnesty bill.

In July we posted “So you think you know Jeff Flake? Think again,“ Is it any wonder Flake’s is rated as one of the nation’s least popular senators? He shares the dishonor with his mentor John McCain.

Arizonans deserve better.


AZ Republic endorsements: deliberate deception

August 7, 2016

August in Arizona takes its toll with no relief from triple digit, scorching temperatures and the realization that they‘ll be no reprieve for weeks to come. Residents used to joke they could fry an egg on the sidewalk. Now that stale humor is put aside for real entertainment. It is the political season, after all.

Case in point is the leftist Arizona Republic’s endorsements in the upcoming Primary Election. Over the last week, the predictably skewed endorsements provided a bit of levity, starkly evidenced by the newspaper’s pick in the First Congressional District. Highlighted are two Dems, both former Republicrats — exactly the type of apostates that would get the nod from the conservative-despising boors at the newspaper. They credit their favored of the two, while a state legislator,  as having been a facilitator for liberal Gov. Janet Napolitano’s “many budget (and) policy wins during her tenure….” 

Day after day, the preposterous endorsements are head shakers for those who actually follow politics. The McCain endorsement was an exercise in foolishness, sloppiness, and willfully dangerous, since coffee drinkers across the state choked on their first morning sips. According to the newspaper, the marginal McCain is “a global figure and one of the most influential people in the world.”  Omitted is the fact that McCain has been censured by elected statewide Republican party officials, has been a regular White House visitor advising Obama on myriad issues and has been funded since 2001 by freedom-hating Socialist, multi-billionaire George Soros.

The error filled editorial refers to his opponent Dr. Kelli Ward as having served “two years in the Arizona Senate.”  It was actually two terms, two years each, which equals 4 years. You can guess that  facts are irrelevant and playing fast and loose is the newspaper’s stock in trade.

Another challenger, who has since pulled out of the race was deceptively referred to as a “GOP party activist,” although he was previously registered as  a PND —- Party Not Designated.

The brain-dead McCain sought to arm Libyan dictator Muammar Qadhafi, posed with ISIS terrorists —- and promised the “revolutionaries” weapons, training, and funding.  He referred to them as “freedom fighters.”

Here is the “influential global leader” in a 2008 CBS News clip haughtily speaking with reporters in Jordan and exhibiting abysmal ignorance of who the extremists and terrorists actually are. He was immediately corrected by far more knowledgeable then-Sen. Joe Lieberman while an obviously embarrassed Lindsey Graham hung his head.

If reelected, McCain and his Democrat allies are prepared to roll for another shot at amnesty in 2017 — which its proponents prefer to call “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” though it has nothing to do with actual immigrants, who arrive legally. Former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, a Kelli Ward supporter, writes,”If you were asked this question — which Republican politicians have lied to voters while supporting illegal immigration and opposing border security, what name is at the top of your list? It’s that same 2008 Republican presidential candidate, US Senator John McCain.”

Politico has written, “McCain has long championed immigration reform, albeit with occasional lurches to the right.”

Know this.  McCain lurches to the right about as often as Seeing Red AZ lurches to the left. His “lurches” are always pre-election and he reverts as soon as the ballots are counted. Sending the 80-year-old McCain back to DC for another six-year term is delusional and dangerous.  We deserve better. Vote for Dr. Kelli Ward

 


Globalist Paul Ryan faces conservative challenger Paul Nehlen

August 2, 2016

National sovereignty passé among One Worlders

Stepping back in time to less than a year ago, Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz wrote, “There is nobody around in the party who is more fanatically dedicated to the cause of open borders than Paul Ryan.”

Ryan’s commitment has been unwavering, even as he was being considered for the post of House Speaker. In 2013 as Breitbart reports, he made the case for effectively dissolving national borders — as he insisted that America “is more than our borders.” Ryan toppled the ever obliging Jeff Flake from Luis Gutierrez’ amnesty enabler altar as he pushed for a completely open immigration system — providing unfettered access to an influx of humanity from all over the globe to freely and legally enter the United States while allowing employers to hire the foreign workers without restrictions.

Ryan appears to be taking a page from Pope Francis’ book. Francis recently insisted Poland “overcome fear” and open its border to Muslim refugees who are “fleeing wars and hunger.” The cherry on the top of this foolish sundae was his claim that wars have nothing to do with religion as “all religions want peace.”  Although Europe has suffered almost daily Islamic terror attacks, the Pope admonished Poland’s government for refusing to accept thousands from the Middle East and Africa. He said opening the country’s borders would takegreat wisdom and compassion

The Pope, who resides behind a massive 50-foot-tall, ten-feet thick wall surrounding the fortress that is Vatican City should spend more time studying history. He would find the first 39-foot wall around the Vatican was finished in 852, following a raid by Muslim pirates who ravaged the city.  

And Paul Ryan? He insists he and his family need this walled security around his mansion. Businessman Paul Nehlen doesn’t buy the hypocrisy. Nehlen is currently challenging Ryan in Wisconsin‘s upcoming Aug. 9 Primary.. Nehlen has made Ryan’s longstanding support of the  open borders immigration agenda a focal point of his campaign. He has also attacked Ryan for promoting Obama’s disastrous stealth immigration and climate change scheme, Trans Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP). On Monday, Donald Trump thanked Nehlen for his support after Ryan sided with Hillary Clinton. Conservative talk show host, Laura Ingraham urged Trump supporters to pressure Ryan to resign.

Unfortunately, Wisconsin has an open primary, allowing both Democrats and Republicans to vote in the Republican primary election, potentially skewing the outcome.

But keep your fingers crossed that Paul Nehlen can pull off the type pf upset politically unknown Prof. David Brat managed in Virginia when he unceremoniously removed House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.  It can be done. This new ad might just do the trick.


AZ Republic endorses McCain in deceitful editorial

July 29, 2016

Truth takes a hike as open border stance gets front and center treatment

The fact that the open border crew at the Arizona Republic endorsed amnesty advocate John McCain comes as no surprise. After over three decades in Washington, D.C. the 80-year-old liberal who has made a career of deceptively capitalizing on an “R” alongside his name, and is anathema to conservatives, is brazenly running for another six-year term.

What is surprising is that the newspaper doesn’t let facts get in the way of its agenda. Examples include the blatant falsehoods concerning two of McCain’s challengers. Front runner Dr. Kelli Ward, a family practice physician, is identified as having served “two years in the Arizona Senate.” It was actually four years — two terms that were two years each. It would seem anyone entrusted with writing a pre-election endorsement would be inclined to check these easily attainable facts. Is the sloppiness intentional or the hallmark of those who choose to diminish  experience? Being a state senator with a penchant for voting “present” nearly 130 times instead of taking a stance, was considered significant enough to springboard Barack Obama to the presidency.

In describing  Alex Meluskey, the editorialist calls him a “GOP Party activist.”  In fact, the primarily self-funded Meluskey was registered as a PND, Party Not Designated, prior to deciding to run for the U.S. Senate. When the newspaper wants to spin, it doesn’t allow pesky facts to get in its way.

The premise of the endorsement is that McCain is prepared to lead in a dangerous world. Aside from irrationally befriending Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi and assisting him in obtaining military weaponry. McCain tweeted out that after visiting him at his Libyan “ranch” the murderous dictator was “an interesting man.”

The editorial fails mention the fact that McCain has been censured by elected members of his own party at a statewide meeting. It omits his longtime association with George Soros, who has funded him since 2001.

Here is an example of McCain’s vast knowledge regarding Mideast turmoil.  McCain posing with ISIS terrorists, who he referred to as “freedom fighters.” Here he is in a 2008 CBS News clip speaking with reporters in Jordan and exhibiting abysmal ignorance of who the extremists and terrorists even are. He was immediately corrected by far more knowledgeable then-Sen. Joseph Lieberman while an obviously embarrassed Lindsey Graham hung his head. On the home front, here’s McCain exhibiting his disturbing lack of knowledge on economic matters.

The newspaper absurdly credits McCain with taking on the VA hospital scandal in which veterans were denied much needed care, resulting in needless deaths while administrators were paid astronomical salaries. It erupted right here in Arizona, under John McCain’s nose. He only reacted when it was politically expedient. McCain, who has served as a “legacy” adviser to Barack Obama,  is also a Second Amendment restrictionist.

This shocking video shows McCain’s abysmal  disconnect on a wide range of issues.

But in the end, it’s all about amnesty for illegals. Although McCain strolled the border with Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu and vowed to build the danged fence, immediately after being reelected, he spearheaded another attempt to push amnesty, with the Gang of Eight, including Jeff Flake, and a host of the most liberal members of the U.S. Senate. Though his word is worthless, the newspaper swoons into throes of McEcstasy actually referring to the marginal McCain as “a global figure.  One of the most influential people in in the world.”

John McCain has had his time and has been a dismal failure. Vote for conservative Dr. Kelli Ward.  It‘s past time for a change.
