AZ US Rep. Paul Gosar’s siblings from hell

September 22, 2018

Congressman’s dysfunctional siblings campaign for liberal challenger

When it comes to having strong conservative values, there are few who meet the test as does Arizona’s 4th Congressional District U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar. The dentist who went to Washington in 2011 is well respected, not only among the Republicans in his district, but those throughout the state. Scroll down to the bottom of his bio link above to see the many high ratings he has earned.

Deplorably Paul Gosar has been set upon by 6 of his 10 siblings who are urging support of his Democrat challenger. They give new meaning to the “own kin” portion of these words of Jesus cited in Mark 6:4: “A prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.”

Among the 10 kids in his family there are 7 Democrats (six of whom appear in the ad shilling for his Democrat opponent), 2 Republicans and 1 Independent.

As adults, we know actual families are not what many of us saw portrayed in idyllic family sitcoms of the past. None of our mother cooked dinner wearing heels and pearl necklaces nor did we have dads who never appeared to have a real job outside of dispensing one-liner advice or sitting in the living room reading the newspaper until the family gathered around the dinner table when summoned by the perfectly coiffed and soft-spoken mom wearing a spotless ruffled apron over a lovely frock.

Still, it’s creepy that the out-of-state siblings of Congressman Gosar are so envious of his many successes that they have cut a campaign ad against him, dishonestly accusing him of “racism” for acknowledging there is an illegal immigration crisis in the United States that requires securing our border and enforcement of our laws.

In a spot ludicrously titled, “A family defends its honor,” Gosar’s left-wing siblings shamefully endorse their brother’s Democrat challenger.

SRAZ would usually provide a link to the commercial, but this cringe-worthy one showing a pathetically dysfunctional family offers nothing more than a guarantee of a skin crawling experience.

For those Arizonans fortunate enough to have Paul Gosar represent them, (map of the extensive district), we urge you to vote to retain this good and effective man.

Jeff Flake outed as a “Traitor”

September 18, 2018

Arizona Republicans who have firsthand knowledge of the deceptive tactics employed by lame duck Sen. Jeff Flake, will find this post that uses the words,Jeff Flake, Traitor,” as its headline an irresistible must read.

John Hinderaker, one of several attorneys writing for Powerline employs some other choice adjectives for Republicrat Flake, along with describing what he rightly identifies as Flake’s “insane hatred for President Trump,” as the driving force behind his alignment with the Democrat members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Their objective is to scuttle Trump’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Describing Flake’s reprehensible antics as they relate to Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Hinderaker states, “Rarely have I witnessed anything so disgusting in the world of politics.”

Despite rightly declaring Flake “should be ashamed of himself,” the author clings to the hope that Jeff Flake would put his spitefulness in check between now and Thursday, when the Judiciary Committee vote is scheduled to be held.

We would caution him not to hold his breath.

Hinderaker calls Flake out as a never-Trumper and castigates him for elevating “his hatred for our president over every principle of politics and public policy.” He further notes. “Flake would rather subvert his own allegedly conservative principles than allow President Trump to exercise his constitutional powers as president. Words can hardly express how contemptible this is.”

“Allegedly conservative principles” are key words. As an example, there were no conservative principles displayed on the Gang of Eight amnesty scheme orchestrated by Jeff Flake and John McCain in which they colluded with leftists Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with reliable squishes Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Marco Rubio (R-FL). The concerted effort that would ultimately have increased the ranks of the Democrat Party, rendering Republicans to Whig Party status, was not an endeavor undertaken by principled conservatives.

The only line in his otherwise well-argued column that reveals Hinderaker as a Minnesotan rather than an Arizonan is including Flake among others for whom he “once had considerable respect.” Those of us who are not 1700 miles away have long known flaky Flake as a practiced liar, going back to his reneging on his original term limits pledge made when he ran for the U.S. House in 2000.  When called out on his deception, he displayed his notorious smirk and wisecracked, “I lied.” That was one of the few truths the McCain clone has told.


Diversity: Our strength or demise?

September 16, 2018

Hyphenated Americans display dual allegiances, lack full commitment to the United States

Today SRAZ is taking Patrick J. Buchanan up on his invitation to share his columns.  It was difficult choosing which one to use, but because we are Tucker Carlson fans, the decision went in favor of his displaying the temerity to inquire of the left, “How, precisely, is diversity our strength? Since you’ve made this our new national motto, please be specific.”

The question was raised after he played clips of Democrat politicians reciting what has become an fundamental ‘truth’ of modern liberalism.

You’ll findThe Unpardonable Heresy of Tucker Carlson,” to be worthy of your time and attention.

This video excerpt of Tucker Carlson’s show features startling demographic numbers. In 1990, the small community of Storm Lake, Iowa had a mere 1.1% foreign born population. Today over half of the residents don’t speak English at home.

Carlson interviews U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, (R-PA), the former mayor of Hazelton, Pennsylvania.  In 2000, less than 2% of the population was Hispanic. Today, fewer than 20 years later, Hazelton is majority Hispanic, thanks to mass illegal immigration.

Hamtramck, Michigan had two Bangladeshi residents in 1990. Today the city is majority Muslim.  

Diversity is obviously not our strength, since we see it overpowering the predominant culture without any input from the citizens whose families have resided in these communities for generations — many with immigrant family roots themselves.  The difference lies in the fact that previous generations of immigrants came to the U.S. legally, processed through Ellis Island (from 1892 – 1954), and were grateful for the opportunity to be Americans. They learned English, prioritized education for their children and accepted our nation’s history as their own. That adaptation was known as Americanization — unfortunately a passé concept today.


AZ Republic policy: There’s no news like old news

September 15, 2018

Children separated from illegal alien parents is routinely recrafted as part of propaganda war against President Trump

We’re all familiar with the adages, “There’s no business like show business,” extolling life onstage, or “There’s no place like home.” All Dorothy had to do was click the heels of her ruby slippers, and she and her dog, Toto, would be instantly transported out of Oz and back to Auntie Em’s farm in Kansas.

The “Oz” for the declining number of Arizonans who still read the local newspaper is not “somewhere over the rainbow,” but in a mind boggling pro-illegal alien echo chamber.

With John McCain finally put to rest after a record-breaking, multi-location, week-long funeral, and the General Election weeks away, the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) newspaper has reverted to its go-to front page story.  Facts are of little consequence, as the headline blasts, “More than 60 separated kids still in Arizona.” 

Buried in the article on page 6 is a quote from an ACLU lawyer, acknowledging that many illegal alien parents voluntarily opt to abandon their children in the U.S. to pursue asylum while they return home.  He calls it a “brutal decision.” It’s also an extremely crafty one, since the children will eventually be able to bring their parents in under a bizarre construct known as family reunification which is part of a scheme called,chain migration.”

The Heritage Foundation presents the facts in an enlightening report, “Who’s Responsible for Separating Alien Kids From Their Parents? Many People, but Not Trump.” If you read nothing else today, read this. It will take only 6 minutes and is guaranteed to make you more knowledgeable.

Bear in mind that American children are routinely separated from their citizen mothers or fathers every day as lawbreaking parents charged with crimes are jailed. If found guilty, they are imprisoned for extended periods. Their children are not incarcerated with them. This is a consequence of committing crime.


AZ Republic views ethnicity as top attribute in Gov’s race

September 10, 2018

Although Arizona’s newspaper of record is still in the thrall of mourning over the passing of John McCain, it has found room on Page One to gear up for Nov. General Election. In the Sunday edition, the Periódico de la República de Arizona  (Arizona Republic) briefly cast aside its grief and all but gave an early endorsement to David Garcia, the Democrat gubernatorial candidate, in an zealous paean that filled a third of the jump page.

There was the cursory, ‘He’s good on education,’ spew that pales in comparison to Gov. Doug Ducey falling on his sword and ponying up the 20% pay hike demanded by the teachers who walked off their jobs for a week. They deserved to be fired rather than rewarded for abandoning over 800,000 students statewide in violation of their contractual agreements.

The teacher’s unions — whose members work 8½ months a year — should consider Ducey their hero.  Instead, they’re enraged that their latest extortionist ploy — #InvestInEd, an irreversible constitutional amendment slated to be on the ballot as Prop. 207, a Marxist redistribution of wealth ‘tax the rich’ scheme — was deep-sixed by the Arizona Supreme Court. They hold Ducey, not the justices responsible. That these educrats who lack a basic grasp of the three distinct branches of government, are teaching Arizona’s students, should concern us all.

What sets Garcia apart isn’t his choice in food or drink, described in minute detail, including his refusal to drink milk at someone else’s home, as his campaign bus hit the political trail. His major accomplishment, over which he has no control, is his ethnicity.  Being a Hispanic running for governor appears to be his major attribute, according to reporter Richard Ruelas. The headline topping his report reads: “Aiming for historic win, Garcia gets on the bus— Democrat would be 2nd Latino governor of Arizona.”

We’ve already had four women governors so gender politics has lost its panache.  In over his head, after serving less than half of his four year term, Arizona Gov. Raul Castro eagerly accepted the offer of President Jimmy Carter to take the post of ambassador to Argentina and was gone in a flash.

Garcia lost his 2014 bid for Superintendent of Public Instruction and now is now focusing his gubernatorial campaign on recklessly abolishing ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) leaving our southern border even more vulnerable to criminals. Garcia is also opposed to constructing the much needed wall along our southern border.

His extreme views mirror those of the left-wing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic, but not the voters of the state of Arizona who overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump in 2016. Divisive identity politics is all David Garcia has.  Running the state requires far more than he offers.

The differences couldn’t be more clear. The wise votes will go to Gov. Ducey. Even Mario Diaz agrees.


Video confirms AZ’s porous border invites invaders

September 8, 2018

Vote smart in Nov. 2018 General Election

SRAZ’s commenter Saguaro Sam provided a link to a site giving coverage to the alarming situation of rampant invaders on our southern border. Running with another site’s post is not our usual fare, but this is particularly relevant, since it concerns Arizona rancher, John Chilton and surveillance videos he’s made of armed illegal invaders in military garb flooding across our southern border and his 50,000 acre ranch.

Chasing the link, we discovered that it originally appeared on the Daily Caller, a site co-owned by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.

It’s of such heightened significance that we are taking Sam’s suggestion and presenting,25 STRAIGHT MINUTES OF ILLEGAL ALIENS CROSSING INTO US THROUGH ARIZONA RANCH.”

This is a must see video.  We are grateful to both the Daily Caller and Gateway Pundit for exposing this vast criminality.

Arizona is facing a crucial General Election November 6, 2018. All of the state’s executive officers will be up for election including a U.S. Senate seat and all nine U.S. House of Representatives seats.

Of particular importance are the governor’s race and the U.S. Senate seat being forfeited by the aptly named Jeff Flake. A virulent Trump hater, Flake’s 18% approval rating signaled, even to him, that reelection was not in the cards, causing him to bow out.

Gov. Doug Ducey raised the ire of conservatives by buckling to the demands of the union teachers who abandoned their students for a week last spring, demanding a 20% pay increase. But the reality is, Ducey is far superior to liberal Democrat David Garcia — who opposes a border wall and campaigns on dismantling Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Garcia is endorsed by myriad unions, pro-abortion groups Planned Parenthood and NARAL along with leftist ethnic identity organizations promoting diversity rather than unity.  The choice is clear.

 In the senate race, we supported Dr. Kelli Ward. Due to a vote-splitting spoiler being in the race and Martha McSally — heavily funded by establishment Republicans — carried the day. Again, the primary is behind us and the choice is moving forward with McSally or radical leftist chameleon Kyrsten Sinema, who has dramatically altered her demeanor and appearance, no longer touts her bi-sexuality or atheism and uses the word “Independent” in her commercials, concealing her communist roots.

Again, the choice is clear. Our candidate lost. McSally beats Sinema by a mile. Gov. Ducey is far superior to David Garcia. It’s time to regroup, come together and vote smart.


AZ tax cheat admits guilt: aided illegals filing fake claims

September 7, 2018

The daily newspaper reports that according to court records, Elias Bermudez has pleaded guilty to preparing false tax returns. The open borders newspaper blandly refers to him as an “Arizona immigrant-rights activist.” 

Investigative reporter Linda Bentley, writing for the Sonoran News covered Bermudez’ indictment in October 2017. Her comprehensive report covers specifics relating to the crime and penalties a conviction carries. 

Bermudez, founder of the deceptively titled, Immigrants Without Borders and owner of El Centro de Ayuda (The Help Center), was indicted on 27 counts of aiding in the preparation of false tax returns. He is accused of advising clients to claim unqualified dependents living in Mexico in order to gain $1,000 Child Tax Credit deductions per child.

Bermudez also operates El Centro de Progreso tax preparation in Phoenix and Tucson.

This shocking exposé  (video also follows post) by Indiana TV 13 is from 2013, but obviously our south of the border neighbors, are still honing their fraudulent schemes, using phony documents and false income to claim tax credits for children who do not live in the United States and are not even children of the filers. The reporter detailed that that the cost to American citizen taxpayers was $4.2 billion yearly, involving 2 million unqualified illegals getting massive tax credits. Those numbers have undoubtedly increased in the five years since this report was filed. The newscaster reports the IRS is aware of the enormous loophole, but the agency claims congress needs to address it.

This astronomically priced fraud should be a major concern of Arizona U.S. Congressmen Raul Grajalva (D-CD3) and Ruben Gallego (D-CD 7), who both represent Hispanic heavy districts. They have been silent on the subject, as has Democrat gubernatorial candidate David Garcia. It’s time for the Republicans to boldly take on this outrageous scam. We elected them to represent us. That includes protecting our hard-earned tax dollars.
