The momentous metamorphosis of Leo Terrell

September 1, 2020

GOP base expands under President Trump

The perpetually scowling Leo Terrell, a self-identified life-long Democrat, recently switched parties in order to vote for President Trump, and is scowling no more. The civil rights lawyer has not only seen the light, but affirmed he is actively recruiting other Democrats as Trump supporters.

Frequently taking the antagonist role as a Fox News contributor Terrell now says the Democrat party “has left him” and for the first time in his life he’ll “be voting for a Republican for president…Donald Trump!”

Terrell predicts that not only will President Trump be reelected, he will do so with the highest number of the black vote, for a Republican, in modern day history.

 

President Donald Trump’s approval with black voters rose nine points during the Republican National Convention, according to a Hill-HarrisX poll.     

Ten percent of black and Hispanic voters changed their support from former Vice President Joe Biden to President Trump over a two-month period, according to a CNN poll published on August 16.

Following the inclusive and energizing Republican National Convention, the race between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden has tightened even more. A new Yahoo New-YouGov poll, shows Biden’s lead shrinking to six points — his smallest margin in nearly two months. The more he talks, the greater his loss will be. Others who previously said they would not vote are now saying they will vote for Trump.

The old adage, “polls don’t matter, votes do,” is one we adhere to, since the majority are surveys are conducted by left leaning organizations, but the spiking Trump trend among minorities demonstrates that groups which were reliably counted on, though never courted, are no longer a dependable bloc for the Democrats. Prior to the life-altering pandemic which invaded our country via China in March, employment and wages reached historic highs under the able leadership of businessman Donald Trump, benefiting all Americans. We’ll see the return of those heights as America continues to recover.


Biden-supporter Flake no comprende conservatism

August 31, 2020

Radical hate monger Jeff Flake despises Pres. Trump more than he cherishes USA

It’s impossible to generate sympathy for a coreless political has-been who cloaks his brazen ego and flagrant ignorance in sanctimonious-laced pomposity, though watching Jeff Flake remind Arizona voters why he was unable to run for a second senate term due to his abysmal 18% approval rating in his home state, is instructive.

Flake recently appeared on CNN, telling leftist host Christiane Amanpour that he believes that “on important issues of American democracy,” former Vice President Joe Biden is “more conservative than the president is.” A John McCain protégé, the aptly named Flake was unable to give any rational explanation, so we’ll draw the distinctions for him:

President Donald Trump’s business career provided the tools to increase jobs and employment to historic highs, as he advocates for lower taxes, securing our border, and expansion of parental choice in education. He is pro-life and a strong Second Amendment supporter. Under his guidance, the US is energy independent, a dream never achieved by previous administrations. Globalism, integral to Socialist George Soros’ borderless nations vision and embraced by Flake, has been discarded as Trump wisely rejected the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Iran nuclear deal and the constricting Paris climate accords.

Pres. Trump has added two new justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and filled federal judicial vacancies. Acquaint yourself with his first term accomplishments and the social programs he has instituted.

Then do yourself a favor and read Patrick Buchanan‘s,A Most Consequential Presidency,” which expands on Trump’s unprecedented and powerful impact on the United States of America. It’s obviously not on Jeff Flake’s reading list.

Jeff Flake’s hero Joe Biden, a Washington insider for nearly 50 years, is now holed up in his basement bunker, emerging only to utter inanities, such as saying he would “shut down the entire country” if a second surge of the Coronavirus surfaces. No wonder Speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want him to participate in the presidential debates that are an essential aspect of presidential elections.

In his 2017 140-page pamphlet masquerading as a book with the stolen title, “Conscience of a Conservative,” Jeff Flake wrote:

“Seemingly overnight, the word globalist became a grave insult among people in my party who also call themselves ‘conservative.”  In this country, we are less than 5 percent of the world’s population. We are 20 percent of the world’s economic output. And if we don’t trade, we don’t grow. Given the alternatives, I’ll take the globalist moniker, thank you.”


RNC Night 4: Pres. Trump’s defining acceptance speech

August 28, 2020

Candidates offer clear choices: Law and order v. chaos…as Biden hides

Reminding Americans,I have kept my promises,” President Donald Trump formally accepted the Republican nomination for a second term outside the White House Thursday evening. He gave a moving recitation of the accomplishments that have occurred under his administration and was not reticent in listing Joe Biden’s failures in his nearly 50-year political career.

Trump told his audience, “They are coming after me because I am looking out for you.”

The choice is clear. When questioned earlier in the week about his response to the Coronavirus, Democrat nominee Joe Biden told the interviewer he would “shut down America.” Kamala Harris, Biden’s vice presidential nominee is on record saying she supports the marauding criminal mobs who have vandalized, committed acts of arson and murder in American cities. Biden, who has not appeared at a single public event since his acceptance speech, is now being given cover by Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has preposterously publicly advised him not to debate President Trump, irrationally stating it would serve to “legitimatize” the president. “Why even waste everybody’s time listening to what he has to say?” she added. Increasingly feeble, Biden has spent much of the campaign holed up in his home basement bunker and stumbling, though reading from a prepared script on camera.

Since 1960, when Kennedy and Nixon clearly showed the critical nature of televised presidential debates, as Nixon refused makeup and appeared fidgety, ultimately losing to Kennedy by a slim margin though coming out ahead with radio listeners, debates have become a mandatory feature of elections that can help or hinder candidates. Pres. Ronald Reagan known as talented debater, mastered the art of short and effective responses as seen in this 1984 unforgettable debate moment when Reagan‘s age had become an issue. In 2000, presidential candidate Rick Perry forgot key parts of his platform, dooming his campaign. Clearly primed for the opportunity, Dem Lloyd Bentson savaged Republican Dan Quayle in the vice presidential debate in 1988.

The RNC’s  final night theme, “The Land of Greatness.” included speakers Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ), Ivanka Trump, Ja’Ron Smith, Ann Dorn, Debbie Flood, former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani, Franklin Graham, Alice Johnson, Wade Mayfield, Arizonans Carl and Marsha Mueller, and Dana White.

The 2020 General Election presidential debates featuring Pres. Donald Trump and Democrat candidate Joe Biden begin in Cleveland, Ohio on September 29. The VP debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Democrat Kamala Harris is in Utah on October 7. Pres. Trump and Biden will then square off again in Miami on October 15 and in Nashville on October 22.

America’s most crucial presidential election will take place on November 3. President Donald Trump has proven he deserves reelection.


RNC Night 3: Pres. Trump acclaimed by powerful, diverse speakers

August 27, 2020

Wednesday night’s theme “Land of Opportunity,” couldn’t have been more fitting. The opening prayer was offered by Rabbi Aryeh Spero, a dedicated supporter of Pres. Donald J. Trump.

Vice President Mike Pence, Second Lady Karen Pence, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, Kellyanne Conway, Keith Kellogg, Jack Brewer, Madison Cawthorn, Scott Dane, Clarence Henderson, Ryan Holets, Michael McHale, Burgess Owens, and Lara Trump all spoke fervently in support of the president.

The impressive list of speakers included numerous women, including one who was unknown and another we are accustomed to seeing at press conferences, who stunned with her personal story.

Sister Dede Byrne, is a surgeon, who served as a Colonel in the U.S. Army Medical Corps and ultimately as a nun with Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts, all the while providing medical care. Her appearance at the GOP Convention on behalf of pro-life President Trump, added a compelling dimension to the list of speakers that included political and sports leaders.

We know Kayleigh McEnany as the White House press secretary and Harvard Law School graduate, but didn’t expect the personal story she shared.

Juxtapose the insights and profound commitment these distinct voices bring in their support for Pres. Donald Trump’s reelection against the fact that Joe Biden, first elected in 1970, has accomplished nothing other than advocating for bigger government, higher taxes, echoing the BLM mantra of defunding the police and less freedom. Biden, who often appears incoherent, remains silent on the rioters, looters, arsonists and murderers destroying lives and American cities. He has repeatedly offended black Americans, most recently with his noxiously insulting statement, “If you vote for Trump,you ain’t black.” Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones, a black, lifelong Democrat, speaking in support of Pres. Trump, disagrees with Biden.

Arizonans Republicans are all too familiar with political duplicity, and pay it little heed. Jeff Flake, a single-term U.S. Senator came out against Pres. Trump and saw his own approval numbers plummet to 18%, causing him to abandon his reelection campaign. The aptly named Flake, hungry for attention, has no constituency other than his own flakey has-been echo chamber, as detailed in this Daily Caller article.

Businessman Donald Trump ran for the presidency and was elected over a career politician in 2016. With our help, he’ll do it again.


First Lady Melania Trump scores with message of hope during crises

August 26, 2020

Positive GOP convention stands in stark contrast to negativity pushed by Biden Democrats during DNC

First Lady Melania Trump displayed her star power addressing America on the second night of the Republican National Convention, but you’d never know it if you read the desperate Arizona Republic,* the far-left tool of the Democrat party which neglected to cover any aspect of the convention.

In a speech given from the White House Rose Garden, she called attention to the Coronavirus pandemic and the violence plaguing American cities.

After expressing gratitude to health care workers and her “deepest sympathy” for those who have lost loved ones to the scourge, Mrs. Trump stated, “I want to acknowledge the fact that since March, our lives have changed drastically. The invisible enemy, COVID-19, swept across our beautiful country and impacted all of us.”

She emphasized “my husband’s administration will not stop fighting until there’s an effective treatment or vaccine available to everyone. Donald will not rest until he has done all he can to take care of everyone impacted by this terrible epidemic.”

As an immigrant and naturalized U.S. citizen from once-Communist controlled Slovenia, the First Lady was compelling as she spoke of the violence overtaking too many American cities. “Like all of you, I have reflected on the racial unrest in our country. It is a harsh reality that we are not proud of parts of our history. I encourage people to focus on our future while still learning from our past. We must remember that today we are all one community comprised of many races, religions, and ethnicities.”

She then focused on her personal story, saying becoming an American “is still one of the proudest moments in my life because with hard work and determination, I was able to achieve my own American dream.

I understand what a privilege it is to live here and to enjoy the freedoms and opportunities we have.”

Speaking of her husband and urging his reelection, she acknowledged, “We all know Donald Trump makes no secrets of about how he feels about things. Total honesty is what our citizens deserve from our president. Whether you like it or not, you always know what he’s thinking.”

Mrs. Trump also emphasized that women’s voices must be heard and praised her husband for building “an administration with an unprecedented number of women in leadership roles.

Last night’s compelling speakers included, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, Eric Trump, Tiffany Trump, Florida Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nunez, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Abby Johnson, Jason Joyce, Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer, Megan Pauley, Cris Peterson, John Peterson, and Nicholas Sandmann

Democrat Joe Biden, via his handlers, has made it clear he wants to enact massive tax increases and job-killing regulations that would stifle economic growth.

Pres. Trump renominated as RNC offers vision of hope, optimism for USA

August 25, 2020

The radically left Arizona Republic newspaper headlined its Page One coverage: “Trump and GOP cast dark warnings.”

At a scaled-down 2020 convention kickoff held in the omnipresent shadow of the Coronavirus, the mood remained upbeat for supporters of President Trump. Speakers on behalf of the president gave moving speeches, including former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley; Andrew Pollack, an impassioned school safety advocate whose daughter, Meadow, was among 17 murdered at her Florida high school; and former pro football player Herschel Walker, a decades-long friend of the president.

Rather than the nearly 2,500 regular delegates, only 336 delegates — six from each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories — have been invited to cast proxy votes at the Charlotte Convention Center. But social distancing, masks and rigorous safety measures didn‘t dampen the enthusiasm of either the delegates or the featured speakers.

First Lady Melania Trump will speak today from the White House Rose Garden. Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence will give his address from historic Fort McHenry in Baltimore, where in 1814, Francis Scott Key was inspired to write the words to what became our national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Many others will address the national audience today, including Arizonan Mary Ann Mendoza who lost her Mesa police officer son, Brandon, in a crash with an illegal alien, wrong-way drunk driver, with a long criminal history. Following the tragedy, she wrote a letter to then-President Barack Obama requesting that illegal aliens not be allowed to register vehicles. That same week, agenda-driven, saboteur Obama requested $3.7 billion for illegal invaders. Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, endorsed by Obama, has been exhibiting disturbing cognitive difficulties, making him an obedient follower.

President Donald Trump will deliver his acceptance speech on Thursday from the White House South Lawn.

There are numerous options available to watch the historic event, including C-SPAN which carries Day 2, Aug. 25 HERE.


Leftist AZ Republic goes mute: No mention of Nat’l GOP Convention

Tennessee boldly increases penalties for protest related crimes

August 23, 2020

GOP Gov. Bill Lee signs forceful bill following rioters setting fires inside and outside of courthouse

Following two-month, around-the-clock demonstrations immediately outside the state Capitol doors, the Tennessee legislature approved a bill that includes enhanced mandatory sentences for vandalism, rioting and assaulting first-responders.

House and Senate Bill 8005 requires that protesters charged with unauthorized camping, vandalism of state property, disrupting a meeting and certain other protest-related offenses be held for at least 12 hours without bond. Read the Bill Summary.

The new law, signed by Gov. Bill Lee states that those who illegally camp on state property would now face a Class E felony, punishable by up to six years in prison, rather than a misdemeanor. Felony convictions in Tennessee result in the revocation of an individual’s voting rights.

The Senate passed the bill 26-5 on a party-line vote, with a single GOP member opposing it. The House approved the legislation 71-20.

 The law which will take effect on September 15 includes the following measures:

Creates a misdemeanor offense of assault against a first responder for spitting or throwing bodily fluids and felony offense of aggravated assault against a first responder for using a weapon or causing serious injury. The misdemeanor must be punished by a minimum of 30 days in jail and $5,000 fine, while the felony has a minimum mandatory sentence of 90 days and $15,000 fine;

Makes it a felony to trespass on the property of an elected official, law enforcement officer or judge with the intent to harass;

Requires vandals who deface state buildings or entrances to be charged with theft and ordered to pay restoration or cleaning expenses. Those charged with the offense a second time must pay a mandatory $5,000 fine;

Imposes a mandatory minimum sentence of 30 days for a conviction of rioting and 45 days for aggravated rioting; 

Makes it a felony to block an emergency vehicle from accessing a street or highway while responding to an emergency call or from blocking an emergency exit door in a building if there is a threat to the health or safety of someone inside.

Tennessee’s response to anarchy-based lawlessness is appropriate and should serve as an example to other states.


America weary of Dem convention deceit, awaits Trump

August 20, 2020

Convention viewership plummeted to new lows

There will be no coverage of the DNC’s final night here. There’s only so much tedium even the most dedicated news followers can be expected to endure, and that limit has been reached. SRAZ is not alone in having its fill. The first two nights of the Dem’s national convention reached a new low, as broadcast viewership was down 48% from 2016 according to Nielsen Media Research.

The Republican National Convention will take place Mon. Aug. 24 – Thurs. Aug. 27, with President Donald Trump expected to make his speech accepting the Republican nomination from the White House lawn. The convention will take place in both Charlotte, North Carolina, and Washington, D.C., with many speakers delivering their speeches remotely due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Vice President Mike Pence and First Lady Melania Trump, with some of the president’s adult children will be featured as well as Trump’s former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, (R-CA), Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) and Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa). Scott, the only black Senate Republican played a key role in crafting the GOP police reform bill, which was ultimately blocked by Democrats who jealously pushed their own legislation.

Also reported to be on the speakers lineup are Charlie Kirk, who heads the conservative student group Turning Point USA, former Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann, combat veteran and Pennsylvania congressional candidate Sean Parnell. Former Planned Parenthood director-turned-pro-life advocate Abby Johnson is also slated to appear at the GOP event.

Another scheduled speaker at the GOP convention is Andrew Pollack, the father of Parkland, Florida high school shooting victim Meadow Pollack, a senior. He is now a school safety advocate. The mass murderer, a former student, killed 17 and wounded 17 others on Valentine’s Day 2018. His trial has been delayed due to the pandemic.

Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the armed St. Louis couple that made news for protecting their house from BLM thugs who broke into their gated neighborhood, then destroyed the gate leading to their home, will also speak. The McCloskey’s, both lawyers, had faced felony charges for unlawful use of a weapon. Those charges were later dismissed.

Both CNN and The Washington Post ultimately settled defamation lawsuits with Sandmann, after mischaracterizing his interaction with Omaha Nation elder Nathan Phillips, a less than sterling character with a violent criminal history, who was beating a drum and chanting loudly at the Lincoln Memorial at the annual March for Life rally. Philips falsely accused MAGA Hat wearing teen Sandmann of blocking him during a confrontation he initiated.


President Trump returns to AZ, touts border wall

August 19, 2020

Dem’s virtual convention featuring leftist has-beens and Cindy McCain, is an actual bust

President Trump met with supporters at a Yuma airplane hangar Tuesday afternoon, braving Arizona’s intense summer heat, where the temperature usually spikes even higher than other parts of the state. Calling attention to the progress on the border wall, he was accompanied by Sen. Martha McSally and members of the state’s congressional delegation as well as Arizona GOP chairman, Dr. Kelli Ward. Also addressing the crowd were Lt. Gen. Todd Semonite, Commanding General of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers; Chad Wolf, acting U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security; and Mark Morgan, acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Pointing to progress in fulfilling his campaign promise of building the wall, President Trump was met with cheers. In a display of fierce loyalty, many of the attendees traveled to Yuma from around the state to hear President Trump’s Border Wall Construction and Operational Update, marking 300 miles of protection on Arizona’s southern border, with a projection of over 450 miles by the end of the year, impeding criminal activity, including violent gangs, drug cartels, disease and illegal aliens. He addressed the decline in illegal border crossings, and the policies his administration has put in place, such as ending catch-and-release and overhauling the work-visa program.

Trump received accolades from Customs and Border Patrol Deputy Ortiz, who said “…On behalf of the men and women of CBP and all the law enforcement across the country, thank you for your support. I’ve been doing this job for 29 years, and I can tell you that it makes a world of difference knowing that we have the top cover from our commissioners, the Secretary, and certainly from the administration.And I want to tell you that the infrastructure that we’re putting into place — whether it’s a technology, whether it’s the wall system, or the men and women that we’re adding to our workforce each and every day — it’s certainly going to help improve the security in our country. And so, on behalf of all of us that, each day, put on our uniform, leave our families, hoping to make a difference, we appreciate your support. Thank you. “

Trump’s trip to Arizona was a welcome distraction from the second day of the DNC’s bitter side-show dredging up ancient Democrats pledging their loyalty to the often confused Joe Biden, who would have difficulty naming any of them. Radical leftist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was highlighted at the convention for a full 60-seconds. She used her minuscule wedge of time to nominate avowed Socialist Bernie Sanders, who suspended his campaign, leaving April 8. He endorsed Joe Biden April 13. Her foolishness an example of the incoherent Democrat party.

For the Democrats, this election is about them running under the radically left banner of the of a Green New Deal, Medicare-for-all, free education and  higher taxes. There is no leadership emanating from this vacuous party, who have joined with the BLM crowd eager to defund the police and anarchist mobsters who are looting and committing acts of violence against people, property, federal buildings and American historic monuments.

Yet this is where Cindy Lou Hensley McCain, the beer heiress, finds her haven. She was given time at the DNC to detail her husband’s warm friendship with Biden. McCain previously lost to the Barack Obama/Joe Biden team. In 2014, John McCain was censured by Republican elected state and county delegates who had their fill of his colluding with the Democrats.

The entire McCain family let it be known that they would not support Donald Trump in 2016. Like her husband, Cindy‘s also a prolific liar, tweeting on April 24, 2019:

“Joe Biden is a wonderful man and dear friend of the McCain Family. However, I have no intention of getting involved in presidential politics.”
