Arizona is Politico’s blue “Pick State” in mid-terms

July 16, 2018

Politico, the DC journal that should more accurately be named “LeftLurchio,” is almost as ecstatic as the AZ Repugnant newspaper over what they view as 2018 Democrat prospects here in Arizona.

Instead of cataloging the obvious bias, it’s fair to ask, “What brought our red state to this sorry situation?” It doesn’t take much mental wrangling to lasso the simple answer: The rank “stewardship” of McCain, McFlake, McDucey and McKyl.

SRAZ’s Sunday post,Obvious cracks in AZ Corp. Com. Candidate Glassman,” detailed the candidacy of slickster Rodney Glassman, a Democrat more adept at switching political parties than accruing accomplishments. Glassman is now an opportunistically newly minted Republican, running as a conservative for the AZ Corporation Commission, which sets rates on Arizona‘s public utilities. He has inexplicably been able to secure the endorsements of GOP office holders when, Jim O’Connor, a far better qualified, actual conservative candidate is in the race.

Even though pro-illegal invasion author Ethan Epstein was so eager to get this written, he errs on pertinent facts,* our best advice is to read,Is THIS the year Arizona finally turns blue? on an empty stomach.

* Overwhelmed by his duties as governor, Raul Castro left office mid-term to accept an ambassadorship to Argentina offered by President Jimmy Carter. The actual facts are available in,,Gov. Ducey overstates short-termer Castro’s impact on Arizona.

Epstein praises single-term Sen. Jeff Flake, neglecting to mention that he won the senate seat by a slim 3% margin, and opted not to run for reelection due to abysmal 18 percent approval ratings for his incessant bashing of President Trump in a state that carried the president to victory, awarding him all of its electoral votes.

Skewing “facts” might make an interesting story, but it doesn’t obscure the truth.

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.


Jon Kyl: “Coyote” for Supreme Court nominee

July 10, 2018

One of the great curiosities of the Trump Administration concerns the high number of “Never Trumpers” — Open borders, Country Club Republicans — who somehow worm their way into positions of responsibility and power — allegedly in the service of President Trump.

The latest — and most notorious — example is the decision to have Jon Kyl — the calculating and committed Arizona amnesty supporter, given the responsibility of shepherding U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh through the process of senate confirmation. The former Arizona Senator, who double-crossed the voters who awarded him his last term (sound familiar?), caved on promises of border security, and was all-in for the infamous McCain Amnesty. The cautious “McKyl” made his treacherous turn for crass careerism — ironically, centered on the Supreme Court.

Here’s the way it went down: Kyl, who might know his way around a speedway, but has a crappy understanding of Vegas odds for “shooting craps,” gambled that his support of “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” would result in his nomination to the High Court by George W. Bush. There was just one problem. There was no vacancy. So, Kyl slithered out of the Senate and into a D.C. lobbying job at Covington & Burling where he partners with Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder, among others. Last year Kyl was appropriately named to The Hill‘s “Top Lobbyists: Hired Gunslist, rife with Democrats.

The unctuous Kyl, remembered in Arizona for his slimy McCain-like efforts to purge elected conservatives on the precinct level, is now custodian of the new Supreme Court nominee, escorting him through the senate halls to meet with those who will be voting yea or nay on his confirmation.  As recently as February 2018, Phoenix’ KJZZ headlined a report, “Former Sen. Jon Kyl Is No Fan Of President Trump.”

Now the same Kyl is running an escort service on behalf of President Trump’s SCOTUS nominee.

Ain’t Washington grand?


Worried about separation? Hardly. Illegals keep coming

July 8, 2018

With all of their anti-Trump issues fizzling, Democrats have latched onto the separation of illegal alien families at the border as their pivotal issue going into the midterm elections. 

Three main refresher points beg to be made:

  1. This program did not originate under President Trump. It has been in place since the George W. Bush administration and was expanded upon by Barack Obama, a fact that is conveniently swept under the liberal political mat.
  2. Using children, whether your own or those unrelated to you, as a means of gaining illegal access into the United States doesn’t, and shouldn’t, work. Operation Streamline, a program begun in 2005, referred all illegals for prosecution, making exceptions for those traveling with children. That policy brought us to the indefensible point where children provide cover to America’s invaders. On June 20, Pres. Trump signed this Executive Order, affording congress the ability to prioritize immigration proceedings involving illegal alien families.
  3. American citizens who commit crimes and are incarcerated are routinely separated from their children, oftentimes for years. If they bring the children along during the commission of their criminal acts, those actions results in enhanced penalties. Where are Socialist billionaire financier George SorosActBlue* and MoveOn recruited mobs —- known for inciting riots —- marching over their plight? They are nowhere to be seen — since their criminality doesn’t play into the Left’s narrative.

The telling headline in the Arizona Republic provides the rest of the story in a two-page report: “Despite separation threat, more families are arriving at border.”

Obviously they are not as aggrieved by the circumstances as the drummed up protesters are. The takeaway is the issue of “separated families” plays well with the left-wing media that desperately needs to divert attention away from the monumental successes of the Trump administration, including the lowest unemployment rate in decades and a booming economy.

Those bread and butter issues are what bring working Americans, who are paying attention, to the polls. 

Republicans are motivated to ensure President Trump is surrounded by conservatives in the U.S. House and Senate to get his legislation passed and judges approved. Tomorrow he is set to nominate a replacement for retiring U.S, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Report: Gov. Ducey poised to appoint Cindy McCain to U.S. Senate

July 2, 2018

It’s no surprise Ducey is faring badly in two new polls. A newly released NBC/Marist survey of AZ voters shows only 26% say he deserves to be reelected. Emerson College polling has Ducey’s approval at 31%.

The Santa Monica Observer’s Sunday edition has scooped Arizona’s newspaper of record with a uniquely Arizona news item. The article is headlined, “John McCain To Resign Senate Seat on the 4th of July, Says Aide. Cindy McCain Offered his Seat.”

The rumor mill has been rife with suggestions that McCain ally Gov. Doug Ducey, whose first job when moving to Arizona to attend college was working at Cindy Hensley McCain’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship. Ducey developed a close bond with the McCain’s that exists to this day. He and his wife recently visited the ailing McCain at his Cornville, Arizona retreat.

Speculation has intensified on Ducey appointing his friend and former employer Cindy to the senate, which the governor’s spokesman quickly tamped down, calling the discussion, “disgraceful.” The actual disgrace would be appointing her, ensuring the continuation of a McCain colluding with the most liberal Democrats and lying about securing our southern border.

On June 5, SRAZ posted Ken Bennett can and will be AZ’s next governor. Arizonans can count on the fact that Bennett would never appoint Cindy McCain to the U.S. Senate.

A Ducey campaign operative derides conservative Bennett, the former AZ Senate President and Secretary of State — the next in line of succession to the governor’s office —  as a “fringe candidate.” In doing so, Team Ducey is violating a cardinal campaign rule as it relates to adversaries: “Never let them see you sweat.”

Also telling is the fact that Ducey refuses to debate the well-qualified and experienced Bennett. No doubt Ducey doesn’t want to defend himself for acquiescing to the demands of Arizona’s striking teachers who violated their contractual agreements as they followed a 23-year-old Bernie Sanders-supporting socialist, abandoning hundreds of thousands of Arizona students for a week. Ducey rewarded them with a 20 percent pay increase.  They weren’t satisfied and are now moving forward with a ballot imitative to permanently “tax the rich” to enhance their salaries.

Ken Bennett states his case unambiguously:

“I am running because the truth matters and we are not being told the truth in critical areas.  My primary opponent, Governor Ducey, has forgotten that this is a Republican state and is caving to outside interest groups on gun control, outrageous budget spending, NAFTA, DACA, and Obamacare.”

As a Clean Elections candidate Ken Bennett needs to amass thousands of $5 campaign donations to become eligible for matching funds. Help him qualify. Time is short.


Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter

July 1, 2018

If you read nothing else today, read this

Today we are gifting our readers with an enlightening and timely article by Bruce Thornton, who knows a thing or two about his topic.

Do yourself a favor and read,LIES, DAMNED LIES, AND IMMIGRATION POLICY, The falsehoods that protect a political interest.”

Illegal immigration and the contrived drama surrounding it are ripping at the fabric of our sovereign nation. Don’t be fooled by the ongoing leftist rant, which now includes abolishing the federal bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). There is a method to their madness, and even the safety and security of our own citizens take a back seat to the liberal agenda of increasing the size of the Democrat voting base.

This commentary is especially relevant following what is claimed to be over 600 nationally organized marches Saturday on behalf of illegal aliens and the traction-grabbing, though based in deceit, issue of “family reunification,” seized on by the desperate Democrats who have seen their other means of regaining political power fizzle. Among the radical organizers of #FamiliesBelongTogether are the ACLU, Women’s March, and MoveOn, funded by anti-American Socialist billionaire George Soros.


Desperate Democrat Party uses outlaw tactics

June 30, 2018

Coordinated rallies in favor of illegal immigration, funded by leftist billionaires George Soros and Tom Steyer, are taking place across the United States today

After losing the presidency they were so sure they would win with scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton as their 2016 standard-bearer — though she had previously lost the party’s nomination to a little-known senator in 2008 — desperate Democrats are committed to taking President Trump down. Unhinged, washed up, Hollywood leftists contemplateblowing up the White Houseor exposing the Trump’s young son to pedophiles. Billionaire Tom Steyer, a San Francisco radical, is behind the attempt to impeach President Trump.

In its effort to undermine Trump’s presidency, Democrats, aided by John McCain, morphed into the party of “Resistance,“ and immediately tried tying President Donald Trump to a bogus Russian collusion hoax. The left is unable to process Trump’s popularity with voters across the nation. He has brought promised tax cuts benefiting middle class families, economic growth and unprecedented low unemployment.

The Democrats? They thuggishly harass Trump Cabinet members and elected Republican officials in public, exploiting what they characterize as separation of families at the border. Illegal alien parents using their children as leverage to enter the U.S. have become martyrs to the left, simply because it works.  Many have even exposed their own young children to rampant dangers and sexual exploitation, allowing them to travel with unrelated strangers, posing as their parents in an effort to use them in the chain migration scheme.

The entire issue of separated families is bogus. American citizen parents who commit crimes and are arrested are routinely separated from their children. If they bring their children along on their crime spree, their penalties are enhanced when they are sentenced to prison. Children of divorce, whose custodial parent moves, are separated from their parents each and every day. The difference is they don’t have liberal advocates hysterically exploiting their situations for political gain.

Children are an easily exploitable distraction. What the left actually desires are open, transnational borders. It’s not about family reunification. They want no one detained. Ever.

President Trump signed this Executive Order on June 20th, specifically addressing family separation. Still, there are obvious facts that should not be ignored:

Older kids oftentimes travel alone, and once here will act as conduits for other family members. MS-13, a notorious and vicious gang originating in El Salvador has grown and spread throughout the U.S. recruits kids as young as ten.

Don’t be conned by purposely ginned up media hysteria. President Trump has long held that the United States must adopt an immigration system that serves our national interest. He has remained committed to securing our border by construction of a wall, restoring the rule of law, and returning illegal entrants to their countries of origin. Among his priorities is protecting American workers by ending the chain migration scheme. He has eliminated the irrational Visa Lottery, and implemented a merit-based entry system — reforms which advance the safety and prosperity of all Americans while helping new citizens assimilate and flourish.

Still the illegals keep coming and the left-wing media prefers them to the American citizens who overwhelmingly support President Trump. It’s all about expansion of the Democrat party.

Ann Coulter nailed it in her commentary,”HISPANICKED GOP ELITE: THEY’LL RESPECT US IN THE MORNING.” It’s not new, but the underlying political demographic premise remains relevant.
