AZ U.S. Rep. Schweikert speaks truth about McCain

October 5, 2015

Congressman David Schweikert (R-CD 6) is being excoriated by John McCain’s obedient reporter at the daily newspaper.

Dan Nowicki, who dutifully covers the senior senator as though his career depends on it, hammers Schweikert in the Sunday edition.  And what did the congressman do to warrant such treatment as a headline using the full names of all players: “David Schwiekert’s dismissal of John McCain boosts Ann Kirkpatrick”?

Republican Schweikert stands accused of speaking the truth as it relates to the unpopular and weakened McCain — who will be 80 by Primary Election day and is running for his sixth 6-year senate term.

You do the math.

Incompetent  Ann Kirkpatrick, a union-supported, pro-abortion liberal, mounting a challenge to McCain has used Schweikert’s assessment in a campaign ad as if the facts are news.

Even Nowicki grudgingly acknowledges forces are aligned to take out McCain.

The rise of presidential aspirant outsiders such as Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina, while anointed establishment candidate Jeb Bush sinks to the low single digits, is sure to give McCain heartburn. Stir in the conservative glee over Obama-obliging House Speaker John Boehner’s imminent departure, along with the stunning 2014 Primary defeat of GOP House Majority Leader Eric Cantor by an unknown conservative, and it becomes clear Republicans want  new and conservative faces. Cantor vastly outspent Brat but was unable to shake the assertion that he too willing to compromise on illegal immigration — now a looming issue even in Virginia.

McCain is described as “the ultimate insider” by his own toady Nowicki. The esteemed Conservative Review scores McCain with a bright red “F.”

John McCain is indeed vulnerable. His own party’s elected officials overwhelmingly voted to censure him. He ruthlessly retaliated by colluding with Democrats as he attempted to purge the conservatives activists from elected precinct committeemen posts. McCain colluded with discredited IRS official Lois Lerner in a concerted effort to target conservative advocacy groups.

It will only be due to a glut of candidates that John McCain could hope to win. Of the challengers, there is only one —  physician and constitutional conservative former state senator — Kelli Ward, who is deserving of your vote. Read her impressive bio, check out her stance on the issues that matter to Arizonans, send her a donation, and get out the vote for a woman who will make Arizona proud.

McCain was first elected to the U.S. House in 1982. He’s now running for his sixth six-year senate term.

Haven’t you had enough of his deception?

Jeb! at 4%: Bushwhacked!

October 3, 2015

Buh, buh, buh…I’m heir apparent Jeb Bush

The latest Pew Research Center survey is not good news for the dynasty-based presidential aspirations of Jeb Bush. According to its latest poll released Friday, Jeb! has skidded to 4 percent in the 2016 Republican presidential campaign field. Donald Trump leads with 25 percent, while Dr. Ben Carson comes in second with 16 percent.

The polling group rightly concludes Republicans now prefer ‘New Ideas’ to ‘Experience.’

Slick speakers, Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio, increasingly seen by citizen voters as McCain allies and weak on the critical issue of illegal immigration, are in single-digit land, tied at third place with 8 percent.

AZ Republic’s skewed “viewpoints” expose bias

September 28, 2015

Newspaper makes no effort to provide balance

Sunday’s edition of the Arizona Republic is a classic, rife with examples of the leftward lurch that underscores the entire failing publication. For the untutored reader it would be easy to mistake the page topping headlines “Viewpoints Sunday” and “Opinions” as vehicles delivering a variety of vantage points. That is obviously not the case.

There’s the requisite piece of open borders blather from Linda Valdez, the resident amnesty doyenne.  An Our Turn article titled “Focus on the Future” is the joint effort of two notable educrats, Sybil Francis (wife of Arizona State University’s overpaid president Michael Crow) and Lattie Coor, who preceded Crow as ASU president. The duo seeks to exert liberal influence within the state’s educational structure and beyond.

The expected piece of Arpaio bashing is front and center. This one dripping with sarcasm aimed at the sheriff and his office. Letters to the editor? Most sound as though they were crafted by the ASU’s Cronkite journalism students who have risen to jobs for which they are unqualified, as seasoned staffers grab their retirement and run — before the dam finally breaks. 

Focusing on the Question of the Week, under AZ Talk, the skew is irrefutable.  The question, “If Trump wins the Republican primary can he win the White House? “ is answered by each of four selected respondents with the first word emboldened and preceding a short explanation. There are two “No” answers, one “Never” and one “Maybe“. Of the four only one is a registered Republican. Listed under their names are their jobs, presumably intended to convey credibility. Two are either former or current teachers, one is a sculptor’s assistant, and another is described as a “community enthusiast.” 

Phil Boas, son-in-law of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the director of the Arizona Republic’s editorial pages. That means he oversees the constant barrage against his wife’s father and the grandfather of his kids. It’s a good bet he also has at least some authority over the type of questions asked and the selection of those who respond —  typically in lockstep — with the newspaper‘s bent. Conservatives should consider giving this guy a call and volunteering to provide their perspective on issues concerning us all. Phil Boas can be reached at 602-444-8292. No doubt he’d like to hear from you.

Trickery escalates at the Arizona Republic

September 21, 2015

Using intentionally imprecise words, Arizona’s newspaper of record toils at trying to influence its increasingly diminished base of readers.

Standing as a stark example is Sunday’s front page headline, topping the final installment of an eight-part series — the sole intent of which is to defeat Maricopa County’s popular Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The headline?  “As Arpaio considers a 7th bid for office, some say it’s time to go.”  Got that?  “Some say.”

The objective of an eight-part series is to encompass two weekends, since the withered readership includes a larger segment of Sunday only subscribers. Between now and the 2016 election, count on the fact that the Daily Insult will quote itself repeatedly as it desperately attempts to exert influence. Of course, those glory days when citizen voters stood in line at polling places with the newspaper’s endorsement list in hand, have long since passed. Now it’s far more likely that an endorsement will be the kiss of death for candidates and issues.

The left-wing, pro-amnesty-for-illegals newspaper which we often refer to as The Periódico de la República de Arizona, never lets facts get in the way of agenda. Its Open Borders Queen, Linda Valdez, takes up three-quarters of the editorial page with, ”10 immigration myths debunked.” In fact, she “debunked” nothing. But truth holds no relevance when it comes to opinion pieces passing themselves off as factual. The left-weighted newspaper ceased having an op-ed page or featuring opposing columnists years ago.

In order to remove the onus from invading Hispanics coming across our nation’s southern border, the folks at the Daily Insult solicited a local lawyer to write a lengthy piece about his family’s generational roots in Arizona facilitated by his illegal Chinese grandfather. According to the saga, the grandfather moved easily between China and the United States, returning to his homeland to find a bride and then slipping her in with him on a return trip. The author concludes by chastising the use of the term “anchor baby,” lecturing on the hardships illegals endure as they sneak into the U.S. 

Republicese is a language unto itself. Reading it takes patience and definitely the assistance provided by a Primer. We cheerfully provide, “A Primer: How to decipher Republicese,” which includes a link to the ever-popular “Lingo.”  The language of Newspeak, AP’s revised acceptable words can be found in, “Winston Smith: Alive and well at Associated Press.”

Be aware, the invasion now employs even more fanciful jargon with the words “migrants, undocumented, refugees, asylum seekers” replacing the now politically incorrect “illegal aliens” —  a term we will continue to use.

Though this revealing post was written in 2013, it includes links going back to 2008. 

Carly Fiorina: A spiteful McRINO, not a victim

September 20, 2015

Donald Trump’s comment on Carly Fiorina’s appearance garnered widespread negative coverage. As she played the victim role to the hilt, Fiorina gave an award-winning performance.

But in the brutal world of presidential campaigns, nothing remains hidden for long. This video shows hypocritical Carly Fiorina making snide remarks about Sen. Barbara Boxer’s “so yesterday” hair style (4:00) during their 2010 senate race. Fiorina also used the opportunity to take potshots at Sean Hannitty. “You know how he is,” she tells an off-screen associate.

After watching the “victim” as a catty aggressor, read “The Conservative Case Against Carly Fiorina,” by John Hawkins. You’ll find an establishment-backed moderate with long ties to John McCain. Her newly burnished conservative label is merely campaign re-branding.

RedState’s Erick Erickson unmasked Carly Fiorina in 2010.

“From her praise of Jesse Jackson, to her playing the race and gender cards against Chuck DeVore, to her support for the Wall Street bailouts, to her qualified support for the Obama stimulus, to her past support for taxation of sales on the Internet, to her waffling on immigration, to her support for Sonia Sotomayor, to her Master’s thesis advocating greater federal control of local education, to her past support for weakening California’s Proposition 13, to her statement to the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board that Roe v. Wade is “a decided issue,” Carly Fiorina’s oft-repeated claim to be a “lifelong conservative” was only plausible in the universe of NRSC staffers who recruited her in the first place. She endorsed Federal funding of embryonic stem-cell research for “extra” embryos. She endorsed the California DREAM Act, which grants in-state tuition to illegal immigrants. She refused to endorse California’s Proposition 23, which suspends the job-killing AB 32 climate-change law….”

The closest Carly comes to conservatism is when she inadvertently opens a dictionary to the page where the word is listed.

Donald Trump illuminates illegal invasion

September 17, 2015

American job losses assessed by NumbersUSA

Illegal immigration, a costly and key issue negatively affecting the United States in countless ways,* is finally being addressed by GOP presidential candidates  — a fact for which we can thank Donald Trump.

Prior to Trump’s entry into the 2016 race, the matter was given short shrift, if mentioned at all.  Wednesday’s Republican debate at the Reagan Library demonstrates the topic has become a central theme as voters evaluate the presidential hopefuls.

NumbersUSA uses a grade card system to assess the candidate’s immigration stances and their effect on Americans’ jobs and wages. The site is fact-filled and is sure to interest political observers. Five Democrats and nine Republicans are represented.

The ratings and grades reflect an urgency about the economic status of tens of millions of American workers who are in occupations where real wages are lower than they were 15 and 20 years ago. With nearly 60 million working-age Americans not even holding jobs, NumbersUSA reserves A and B grades for those who have shown they are truly serious about reducing the flow of foreign labor into these giant pools of surplus labor.

This Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration audit report substantiates Donald Trump’s assertion that $4.2 billion in refundable tax credits was paid to illegals working in the United States in 2011 alone. Those numbers are exclusive of the cost of benefits the illegals impose upon us. Illegal immigration is a no-win for the citizens of the U.S. 


Who is the “man?” Secret decoder ring needed

New reporting technique contrived to cover crimes of illegals

This news report in Monday’s edition of the  Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) covers the conviction of a monster. It’s headlined, “Phoenix man convicted in killing of brother, 6-year-old nephew.”

We read that after rejecting the defense’s preposterous claims of mental illness, jurors returned a verdict in the 2010 premeditated murder trial of Christopher Licon.

The name of the judge is included, and the additional charges of kidnapping, burglary and tampering with evidence are all there. We know that he murdered his brother, Angel Jaquez.Licon, 27.

Incredibly this creature returned the next day to assassinate his 6-year-old nephew, Xavier Daniel Jaquez, the sole witness to his father’s murder.

Christopher Licon shot both his own brother and young nephew in the back of the head. The child was taken by force and killed in an alley behind his mother’s home. His body was found there by a garbage truck driver the following morning. When arrested, Licon had previous drug warrants pending. Phoenix Police described him as “an extreme danger to the public.”

While in jail, Licon was accused of assaulting a corrections officer. But the reporting team, using a technique reminiscent of Tom Wolfe’s “Bonfire of the Vanities,” was quick to include his status as an “honor student.”  He just might qualify for an acting scholarship, based on his feigned call to police saying he had discovered his brother’s dead body when he returned home from school.

Missing from the fact-filled report is Christopher Licon‘s status. He may be a U.S. citizen, but we’ll never know, since that information is magically excised from news coverage these days.  It’s either too politically incorrect or inflammatory. But according to the left’s latest reporting methods, it’s definitely none of our business.
