Watch AZ GOP debates: Sec. of State & AZ Treasurer

July 21, 2018

Clear winners: Steve Gaynor and Sen. Kimberly Yee

AZ GOP Sec. of State debate: Reagan vs. Gaynor:

The first Square Off is between problem-plagued incumbent Secretary of State Michele Reagan and challenger Steve Gaynor, a longtime Arizona business owner.

Under pressure, Reagan admits there were massive errors made under her administration. “That was my first election,” she says. “Everything went haywire. Yes, we’ve made mistakes in 2016, but it is now 2018.

Gaynor: “Elections are the foundation of our democracy. If they’re not well run, if people don’t have confidence and trust in the process, it tears at the fabric of our society.”

AZ GOP State Treasurer debate:: Sen. Kimberly Yee vs. Jo Ann Sabbagh

Yee, an Arizona native and former state senator, has previously worked at the Treasurer’s Office, is knowledgeable and handles herself with the confidence that comes with experience. Five former state treasurers have endorsed her.  Sabbagh, clearly out of her league, resorts to childish name calling.

The adult in the room: Sen. Kimberly Yee

The debates, hosted by Ted Simons, are sponsored by the Citizens Clean Elections Commission.

Emulating his mentor, John McCain, Gov. Doug Ducey has refused to debate conservative challenger Ken Bennett. Ducey has lost support for acquiescing to the colossal 20% pay hike demands of the striking teachers who abandoned 840,000 Arizona students for a week as they followed a self-identified Socialist Pied Piper. Now, in true Marxist fashion, they are supporting a class warfare ballot initiative which will be an irrevocable Constitutional Amendment that will permanently “tax the rich,” putting untold burdens on Arizona’s small business owners who are job creators.  

Bennett, an Arizona native and businessman, is a former Secretary of State and previously served in the Arizona Senate, where his colleagues elected him senate president.

Ken Bennett is the conservative to support for AZ Governor.

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.


Pres. Trump nominates Judge Brett Kavanaugh as next SCOTUS Justice

July 9, 2018

In a moving speech introducing Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, President Trump hit all the right notes. It will be difficult for the despairing Democrats to disparage this man, who by all accounts has an impeccable record of jurisprudence.

Prepare for the Left’s lies, which we’ve seen before and are now wise to their deceptive ways. President Ronald Reagan nominated Constitutional scholar and Appellate Court Judge Robert Bork to replace Justice Lewis Powell, July 1, 1987. Like Anthony Kennedy, who is currently retiring, Powell was considered a “swing vote.”

This is amoral Senator Ted Kennedy, savaging Robert Bork with blatant falsehoods. Rather than continue to be the target of the hostility directed at him, when a Supreme Court vacancy existed, the admirable Judge Bork withdrew his name from consideration.

Let these words flowing from the lips of Ted Kennedy sink in. The alcoholic womanizer left 28-year-old campaign worker Mary Jo Kopechne to drown in his car which he drove off a bridge at Chappaquiddick Island. He waited until the next morning to make an appearance, sobered up, wearing a neck brace, with a concocted cover story and accompanied by his long-suffering wife. His presidential aspirations died with the young teacher and political speechwriter.

“Robert Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, and schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the Government, and the doors of the Federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens.”

Arizonan Sandra Day O’Connor, a moderate Republican, and ultimately the court’s most aggressive swing vote — reveling in that position — was named the first woman to ascend to the U.S. Supreme Court. Bork became a verb.

President Trump and Senate Republicans, heed the words of Biblical prophet Jeremiah, and “gird your loins” for the battle that is sure to come. The sweet truth is, ultimately you will be victorious.


Sen. Dems poised to abandon Schumer’s SCOTUS dictates

July 7, 2018

Insurrection brewing: Schumer’s own NY district assemblyman has vowed to vote with GOP after scathing rebuke of Schumer’s deceit

Monday at 9:00 pm (ET) President Donald Trump is expected to name his Second U.S. Supreme Court nominee.  Justice Anthony Kennedy’s recent letter announcing his retirement provides the president the opportunity to replicate the type of thoughtful, experienced justice he picked when selecting 10th Circuit Judge Neil Gorsuch.

Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett is rumored to top the president’s short list. Others whose names are mentioned as possible choices are Federal Judges Brett Michael Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Thomas Hardiman and Utah Sen. Mike Lee. 

This ad, “Another Great Justice,” was produced by the Judicial Crisis Network.

Judge Gorsuch’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court was confirmed on April 7, 2017 by a 54–45 vote, Three Democrat senators who voted for Justice Gorsuch are Joe Manchin (D-WV), Joe Donnelly (D-IN) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), This was the Senate vote tally.

They are each facing tough reelection races in states that strongly supported President Trump in November 2016, and are clearly in a bind, since opposing the president’s second nominee could come at great personal cost in their home state elections. 

Do they cave to the dictates of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, whose plan is to flip two Republicans, or do what’s right? RINO McCain will not be voting and lame-duck Flake, who also partnered with Schumer on the Gang of 8 amnesty scheme, is unreliable.

All is not going well for Schumer. Closer to home, his tactics have earned him a strong rebuke, as seen in this posting from his own Brooklyn district. His former Democrat ally, Assemblyman Dov Hikind, has publicly taken Schumer to task after receiving a campaign mailer in which Schumer attacked the “hard right” while omitting “vital information.”

Hinkind boldly hammers Schumer and national Democrats for downplaying the impact the Trump administration has had in fostering economic growth. Schumer, who voted against the president’s tax reform package, joined House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in denouncing the savings, wages hikes, and bonuses made possible by its passage as “crumbs.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports Hikind has pledged to vote with the New York state party GOP until the Democrat Party “returns to sanity.” He’ll have a long wait.


Ken Bennett, conservative choice for AZ Gov. beats contrived legal challenges

June 23, 2018

Failing to disqualify Ken Bennett, “sweating” Ducey will not have a cakewalk

“Voter’s Win!  You put me on the ballot,” is the exuberant news from Bennett’s campaign.

Conservative gubernatorial candidate Ken Bennett goes on to explain, “In under five weeks we got 6224 signatures with a 27% cushion. Governor Ducey’s team saw your hard work so he offered money to a signature gatherer to not help me and she refused. So less than an hour before the deadline they filed a lawsuit challenging the petitions.

The lawsuit tried to throw out 12 entire petitions that I personally gathered! 12 Sheets with ten names each for a total of 120 signatures that I held in my hand, looked the person in the eye, and asked them to sign. I am the candidate and the former Secretary of State! My mother and sister who have been politically active and gathering signatures for years in their hometown also had entire sheets on the same list.”

Bennett has every right to be miffed, as he states, “Just think about that.”

“They came up with 19 separate complaints, such as ‘missing address’ or ‘illegible’ and then tried to invalidate the entire sheet of ten signatures. They knew it was all a ruse and withdrew the complaint the day of the trial. Let’s win this Arizona. Honesty still matters. Please help me win the Republican primary to be the Governor of Arizona,” native-born Arizonan Bennett urges.

Obviously Ken Bennett and his team have done an outstanding job and Doug McDucey is worried. But there’s more work to do. Make a $5.00 contribution to Ken Bennett’s campaign. He’s running as a Clean Elections candidate and can only qualify for matching funds if he raises 4,000 $5 donations as required by law. He can also accept seed money up to $160.

McCain ally, Doug Ducey is sitting on a mountain of cash, already having amassed over $3.3 million. 

A Ducey campaign operative derides 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 Bennett. No doubt Ducey doesn’t want to defend himself for acquiescing to the 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.

Bennett says,It’s time for strong leadership in Arizona.” He couldn’t be more correct.  Do your part to make that a reality. Time is short.


FEC investigates McSally’s numerous campaign violations

June 18, 2018

A regulatory panel of the Federal Election Commission (FEC) has unanimously approved an audit of U.S. Rep. Martha McSally’s 2014 congressional campaign. 

To say this is not good news for the current U.S. Senate candidate, often referred to as Sally McCain — for obvious reasons — is the height of understatement. 

The commissioners making up the investigatory panel includes two Republicans, one Democrat and one Independent. They found Martha McSally failed to properly disclose finances and omitted employment information from over 1,200 individual campaign contributors.

Following a recount, McSally, who was expected to fare better, won the 2014 race against Democrat Ron Barber by 161 votes, a mere 0.1%.

This FEC Memorandum is stunning in its scope. Scroll down to Part III ‘Summaries’ and Part IV ‘Findings and Recommendations,’ for the complete report which includes:

Finding 1. Misstatement of Financial Activity

Finding 2. Disclosure of Occupation/Name of Employer

Finding 3. Receipt of Contributions in Excess of the Limit

Finding 4. Failure to File 48-Hour Notices

Finding 5. Failure to Itemize Contributions from Political Committees

Last month the Hillary Clinton-endorsing Arizona Republic veered far off the reservation using the word “liberal” as a pejorative, with this headline, “Liberal group: Martha McSally improperly raising money for House, Senate at same time.”  Although the newspaper hasn’t yet touched this latest McSally fiasco, it’s clearly preparing to ditch her in favor of meticulously repackaged leftist Kyrsten Sinema, who no longer touts her bisexuality, allegiance to atheism, sends May Day messages to the Communist Worker news or crudely derides stay-at-home moms as “leeches.”

Fortunately Arizonans have a superior option. Principled conservative senate candidate Dr. Kelli Ward, who had a private medical practice and worked as an emergency room physician while serving as a two-term state senator, knows that attention to detail is necessary when patients’ lives hang in the balance. Sloppiness is not part of her mindset. The differences are clear. Kelli Ward has won the endorsements of leading conservatives. Join them by donating to and volunteering on her campaign. Senate terms are six years long, There won’t be a buyer’s remorse do-over.


Ann Coulter explains amnesty end game to Koch Bros.

June 10, 2018

Soon to retire, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s amnesty deceit defies logic

Conservative syndicated columnist and lawyer Ann Coulter is right on target again as she takes on the big money funding amnesty for illegals.  During an interview with Fox Business’s ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight,’ Coulter told the Koch brothers “good luck” with an amnesty, noting that mass immigration has slowly handed over electoral dominance to Democrats as foreign-born voters are vastly more supportive of liberals than conservatives.

Breitbart carries the interview and report, which includes this Coulter quote:

“I’m apparently going to have to spend my entire adult life fighting amnesty. Why is this the one bill that comes up every term of Congress. How many different ways can the American people say they don’t want it. This is for the donors. They want their cheap labor. And since I suspect — I mean, I know, blue collar workers and the working class don’t want it and I think more of your viewers are probably those Chamber of Commerce types.

Good luck to you Koch brothers under a government run by Nancy Pelosi. Because that’s what you’re getting if you keep bringing in cheap labor that votes against you 70 to 30.”

On his way out the political door, and despite assurances he would not do so, deceptive House Speaker Paul Ryan is preparing to serve up another rehashed platter of putrid amnesty as a parting shot at American workers and contemptibly timed to negatively impact Republicans in the midterm elections. Trying to figure out what drives Ryan is a fool’s errand, since his actions defy logic.
