AZ Sec. of State candidate Shawnna Bolick is running…scared

October 20, 2021

The emails are being sent in rapid succession, with the obvious expectation that Republican voters have defective memories. Secretary of State candidate Shawnna Bolick seems to have forgotten that the GOP logo is the elephant, esteemed for its keen sense of recall. We also grasp the differences between primary and general elections.

Few voters are fans of single-term, coarse and crude democrat former Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes, and were happy to see him defeated for his fondness for easy-to-manipulate mail-in ballots and ballot harvesting.*  Fontes is currently running for Secretary of State on the democrat ticket, preposterously hoping to oversee statewide elections. He faces a democrat primary challenger.

The words “democrat ticket” are crucial in this context, since Shawnna Bolick conveniently forgets she also faces a Republican August 2, 2022 primary election where she will be pitted against two other Republican candidates. This is not the first time she’s tried this misleading ploy, stating she has two democrat (she calls them their preferred label, “Democratic”) candidates running against her, giving them unnecessary prominence by naming them. The fact is, the two men are actually running against one another in the August 2022 primary, not against Bolick. The general election, in which the winners of their political party’s primary go head-to-head, will occur on November 8, 2022.

Scheming Bolick has doubled down on pitching for campaign donations, pleading,  “It’s me, Shawnna Bolick, asking for your help. I know my team e-mailed you yesterday, but I thought I would reach out myself.” Feigned desperation drips off her pleas.

Although she ran for the legislature, losing twice in LD 11, and is concluding her second term in the state legislature after slickly moving to a district with a vacancy, she strangely chooses to define herself as “not a politician.”

She is also trying to deflect from the fact that President Trump has endorsed in the race, and it isn’t Bolick who won his praise. State Rep. Mark Finchem secured the prized endorsement.

Pres. Trump predicts “easy victory” for AZ SOS candidate Mark Finchem

October 13, 2021

Secretary of State is ideal fit for Rep. Finchem

Our thanks to commenter State Delegate for a link to the National File report covering President Donald Trump’s recent rally in Des Moines, Iowa. He was joined on stage by AZ State Representative Mark Finchem, the conservative candidate running for Arizona Secretary of State.  Arizona does not have a lieutenant governor, so the next in line of succession is the secretary of state, making it a critically important post. The second paragraph of this report puts the magnitude of the office in context.

The National File report, Tough As Hell’: Trump Predicts ‘Easy Victory’ For Finchem After Arizona Candidate Speaks At Trump Rally, includes a brief video you won‘t want to miss.

Rep. Mark Finchem has not escaped the notice of President Trump as noted by numerous sites for a reason.  He’s knowledgeable, ethical, and possesses an enviable résumé

Boorish Fisher attempts to interject himself into legitimate interview with Rep. Mark Finchem

If you’ve ever mistakenly tuned in to PBS’ Journalist Roundtable hosted by Ted Simons, you’ve had a massive dose of head-spinning leftism…enough to keep any rational person from returning.

The stock-in-trade on the Public Broadcasting Service program are self-serving radicals fawning over one another’s blather that would only fly on the local taxpayer supported network.*

Arrogant Howie Fischer is a sometimes panelist. A radical, Fischer, the lone employee at his imposingly named Capitol Media Services, can be counted on to sarcastically wave snark and mockery in the direction of rationality. Conservatives are his red meat. With this instructional background provided for our readers who likely have better ways to spend their time than being insulted by liberal pomposity, we direct you to The Gateway Pundit, whose journalist Jordan Conradson has done a first-rate job of covering the Maricopa County 2020 ballot audit.

This is his recent headline: WATCH: AZ State Rep Mark Finchem – Sets Rude FAKE NEWS Howie Fischer Straight – “This Is HIS Interview Howie… That’s Shameful! I Have Never Seen You Stoop That Low.” Read the entire article for a dose of truth you won’t find anywhere else.

Rep. Mark Finchem, the front-runner in the race for Arizona Secretary of State, carries the golden endorsement of President Trump, which obviously makes him a prime target for Biden-supporting Fischer. 

*You’ll be enlightened by taking just 3 minutes to read Senior Fellow Mike Gonzalez’ commentary for The Heritage Foundation, “Stop Forcing Taxpayers to Fund Public Broadcasting.” The history from Pres. Lyndon Johnson through Pres. Donald Trump, including the role of a young White House lawyer named Antonin Scalia is fascinating. Gonzalez concludes with:

Thomas Jefferson, who never heard a broadcast, was undoubtedly right when he observed that “to compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagations of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical.”

Maricopa County’s election audit results do not instill confidence

September 25, 2021

While the results of the Maricopa County election audit appear to confirm the election results, numerous other questions regarding the 2.1 million ballots, were raised by Senate President Karen Fann.

Sen. Fann sent this letter* to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich specifically detailing areas of concern in the current voting process and requesting a formal investigation. Brnovich, however, is in campaign mode, eyeing a U.S. Senate seat, making it a certainty Sen. Fann’s concerns will go nowhere fast. He previously incurred the wrath of former President Trump, who called his tepid efforts, “lackluster.” That sentiment will come back to haunt Brnovich, who will need Republican support to put wheels on his campaign. Brnovich’s Rasputin-like beard will turn white before that will happen in a crowded field.

Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel isn’t a viable backup. She’s been in local and out-of-state drug and alcohol treatment facilities since election night Nov. 3, 2020, spending more time out of the office than in it. Claiming she also suffers for stress and anxiety, she asks we respect her privacy. That would be easier to do if she resigned and let the chief deputy assume the responsibilities of the office in the fourth most populous county in the nation, which is also a border state with the accompanying criminality.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors have been outed by Steve Chucri one of their own members, who has now announced his impending November resignation, after being caught on a surreptitious tape saying, “I think it was done through dead people voting. I think it was multifaceted.”

When allegations of tens of thousands of ballots cast illegally, including multiple precincts having more votes counted than residents, someone in a position of authority should have had the ability or interest in promoting integrity in the basis of our republic. What we have are self-serving politicians, too many of whom are unable to function in the jobs they arrogantly ran for. The only election they care about is their own.

The Gateway Pundit has been the reliable source for information on the audit. In this report it lists the numerous discrepancies found in the audit. Those seeking truth will never find a shred of it in the failing, Hillary-endorsing local newspaper.

Prior to Sept. 24 reveal, more questions raised with AZ audit

September 20, 2021

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit asks the big question, “What’s going on?” as it relates to Arizona’s recently processed 673,000 voter identities with the Social Security Administration – 58% had NO MATCH FOUND.

Gateway Pundit has been in the forefront of delivering accurate accounts as related to our forensic ballot audit. Take a few minutes to acquaint yourself with the latest full report that begins with these words:

“In the last 10 weeks, Arizona has checked the voter registration credentials with the Social Security Administration (SSA) on 673,560 applicants.

This is a massive volume considering most States including Arizona typically process around 2,500 a month. They’ve processed more identities in the last 2 months than they’ve done in the last 9 years combined. Is someone scrubbing a database, or auditing “Federal Only” voters?”

The graph bearing the headline, “Arizona New Voter Verification Identification with Social Security Administration,” is important to acquaint yourself with. It is one of three enlightening charts.

Under the guidance of Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, the results of the audit — reviled and continually marginalized by the leftist media — are scheduled to be released Sept. 24. Stay tuned.

AZ Sec. of State candidate Shawnna Bolick tries to pull a fast one

September 19, 2021

In the first sentence of a recent fundraising email sent out by Secretary of State candidate Shawnna Bolick, she states that she has two democrat* (she calls them “Democratic”) candidates running against her, giving them unnecessary prominence by naming them. The fact is, the two men are actually running against one another in the August 2, 2022 primary, not against Bolick.

Bolick’s tactic is intended to generate GOP alarm as she mischaracterizes herself as the lone Republican. It’s classic trickery. She is desperately attempting to deflect the news that immensely popular 45th U. S. President Donald Trump endorsed conservative Republican state legislator Mark Finchem, for Secretary of State this past week.

Seeing Red AZ also covered this monumental endorsement, noting having Trump on your side should be enough to make other Republicans running for Secretary of State reconsider their aspirations.

The general election, in which the winners of their political party’s primary go head-to-head will occur on November 8, 2022.

Pres. Trump endorses AZ Rep. Mark Finchem for Sec. of State

September 14, 2021

In a Republican primary Trump remains the name that matters the most

It would be the height of folly to be lulled into thinking Arizona’s Secretary of State position is merely a mundane paper pushing job that certifies state election results, regulates notaries public, advance directives, trademarks and lobbyists.

If any elected office could be called a “sleeper,” with the possibly for great potential, it’s the Secretary of State. Arizona doesn’t have a lieutenant governor post, making the Secretary of State next in line of succession to the governor. Plenty of lightweights of both parties have run for the office, hoping to be elected not to register trademarks and lobbyists and oversee the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, but to be the next in line should something unforeseen happen to the governor. In fact, that’s exactly what has happened frequently enough through impeachment, indictment, resignation and death to put Wes Bolin, Rose Mofford, Jane Hull and Jan Brewer in the ninth floor governor’s office. Attorney General Bruce Babbitt also reached the lofty state pinnacle through the circuitous route, though he was never secretary of state. Secretary of State Mofford was ineligible to run for the office after being appointed when Gov. Raul Castro resigned, which boosted Babbitt, next in line, into the governor’s office. 

This background is provided as a reminded that the post does not go unnoticed.  In fact, Arizona’s Secretary of State election has met the laser-like focus of Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States, whose Maricopa County ballots have been the subject of intense scrutiny of a forensic audit since there has been ample reason to distrust the razor slim total of the original count.

Even out of office, Donald Trump keeps his ear to the ground, which is why he has endorsed AZ Rep. Mark Finchem.

That endorsement should be enough to make other Republicans running for Secretary of State reconsider their aspirations.

Delusional AZ newspaper puts schizophrenia on full display

September 2, 2021

Refuses to tell the truth about Joe Biden, report accurately on Afghan disaster

We get no more pleasure writing about the failure who occasionally appears in the White House than our readers do reading about him. Unfortunately, his caretaker handlers carry out the ill-conceived mandates of the radical left and we cover the disastrous outcomes, hoping there is less likelihood knowledgeable voters will commit the same disastrous error that put this barely cognizant man, closing in on octogenarian status, in charge of our nation. Many Americans have doubts about the integrity of the election, which is why election audits have gained momentum.

Today, we bring a bit of levity. The gravely ailing* Arizona Republic newspaper has outdone itself in the absurdity department. The old saying, “The right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing,” takes on new relevance…as it comes to food and wine festivals.

These are two side-by-side headlines, each bearing the dual credits, “Arizona Republic USA Today Network,” juxtaposed with less than a half-inch separating them:

– Arizona’s biggest food and wine fest cancelled.

– Food and drink festivals return to metro Phoenix.

Who are readers supposed to believe? Their own lyin’ eyes or the radical, Hillary-endorsing newspaper? If it screws up abutting reports describing whether food festival events will or will not take place, imagine what it does with politics!

For actual news you’ll never read in the local leftist newspaper, The Daily Wire headlines its lead report, “130 Retired Generals, Admirals Demand Resignations From Milley, Austin Over Afghanistan Disaster.”

Biden-Harris priorities skewed as stranded Americans are screwed

August 26, 2021

Appalling disregard for abandoned Americans as they jet off to California to support disgraced Gavin Newsom

The Biden-Harris administration isn’t about to let the life and death crisis impacting Americans and our allies in Afghanistan disrupt business as usual. Instead, Slo-Joe Biden and Cacklin’ Kamala Harris, who has record lower favorability numbers than any previous vice president, are planning to travel to California to campaign for fellow democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom, who is facing a recall election on Sept. 14, 2021.

Charlie Kirk correctly asks, “Why is Joe Biden planning campaign trips to help Gavin Newsom in California when thousands of stranded Americans are begging for help in Afghanistan?”

Thinking voters are supporting superbly qualified conservative radio talk show host, columnist, best-selling author and lawyer Larry Elder in the recall election. But in true California loony-tune fashion there are literally pages of certified candidates, including 9 Democrats and 24 Republicans — which will likely guarantee Newsome’s reelection. Each candidate’s profession is listed alongside their name. Among those listed are a college student, cannabis policy advisor and a retail clerk. And what list would be complete without a noted transgender? Caitlyn Jenner, the biological father of 6 and stepfather of 4 grown children, with multiple wives, is also running for governor.

Recall Gavin Newsom is not a lark. Organizers submitted 2.1 million signatures by the March 17 filing deadline. The California Secretary of State’s office found 1,719,943 signatures were valid, more than the 1,495,970 necessary to trigger a recall election.
