Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, 1936 – 2016

February 14, 2016

“A devastating loss”

Precise, honest and hard-hitting, Ann Coulter — with legal creds in high dungeon — discusses the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. She warns, ‘Craven Coward Republicans in Washington’ Had Better Not Confirm An Obama Nominee. Read her assessment on Breitbart.  You’ll likely find your head nodding in vigorous agreement.

In this interview, Mark Levin, a renown Constitutional scholar, says of Justice Scalia who died Saturday,  “I would count him as a top ten, maybe a top five of all time, and he wasn’t even a Chief Justice. This is a devastating loss for people who love this country. It’s a devastating loss for those of us who love the Constitution.”

RIP, Justice Scalia. Job well done.

 


“Anybody BUT Sen. John McCain” resolution

January 15, 2016

Grassroots Precinct Committeemen will bring an “Anybody BUT Senator John McCain” resolution from the floor on Saturday, Jan 16 at the Maricopa County Republican Committee’s Mandatory meeting.  The resolution reads:

We precinct committeemen of the Maricopa County Republican Committee (“MCRC”) fully support our Party, platform, and candidates in the general elections. In the primary elections we each are free to choose which Republican candidates to endorse and support. Since the MCRC members censured Senator John McCain in January 2014, we have hoped Senator McCain would return to our Party’s values. He has not. With sadness and humility we rise and declare our beliefs:

  • Whereas, Senator McCain was censured by the Arizona Republican State Committeemen on January 25, 2014; and
  • voted for DHS funding that included money for Obama’s illegal amnesty for illegal aliens; and
  • as a “Campaign Conservative,” campaigned on securing the border but cosponsored legislation giving “pathway to citizenship” to millions of illegal aliens; and
  • actively worked to purge the party of grassroots conservatives using out-of-state funding via the Arizona Grassroots Action PAC; and
  • voted to kill an amendment requiring certification that Iran has not directly supported or carried out an act of terrorism against the United States before sanctions can be lifted; and
  • demeaned Republicans who stand for the Constitution, calling them “crazies” and “wacko birds”; and
  • voted to support funding for the Iran Nuclear Deal, Obamacare, Executive Amnesty and Planned Parenthood’s selling of body parts;

 RESOLVED that the Maricopa County Republican Committee precinct committeemen endorse anybody BUT incumbent Senator John McCain in the 2016 Republican primary election for the United States Senate.

Dr. Kelli Ward amasses endorsements in US Senate race

December 29, 2015

Conservative challenge to John McCain gaining momentum

Breitbart News, evidencing a depth of understanding of the plight of unrepresented Arizona Republicans, has done a masterful job — through a series of posts —- of introducing the nation to former state senator, Kelli Ward.  

Ward, a physician who recently resigned her legislative post to devote full time to the demanding U.S. Senate race, has been traveling the state connecting with voters. Wherever she travels, she is viewed as a welcome relief to John McCain, who works against the interests of the citizenry and blithely lies while doing so. McCain, who has been censured by the elected state committeemen of his own party, will be 80 by Election Day. He is running for a sixth six-year term.

Monday, Breitbart reported on the list of principled state legislators and political leaders who have come forward to endorse Dr. Kelli Ward’s candidacy. The news site notes that these endorsements come in addition to early December news that the Second Amendment defending group Gun Owners of America endorsed Ward over McCain.

The first major endorsement list of her campaign also includes nearly a third of the state senators who have chosen to back Ward over the establishment candidate McCain.

“Arizona needs strong and consistent leadership that can be counted on,” Ward says. “What we have right now is a track record of broken promises and a laundry list of failed policies that are hurting Arizona and its people —  this needs to end. I am happy to have the support of my colleagues as we work together to change the direction of Washington.”

An August poll showed Ward beating McCain by nine percent. Then In October she released impressive fundraising numbers, bringing in over half a million dollars for her first quarterly report. The money was raised from 2,100 individual donations. None of those contributors are lobbyists or D.C. interests — unlike McCain, who relies on those and other unsavory sources for funding.

Meet Dr. Kelli Ward. Tell your neighbors about her. Make sure you vote.

Splendid Christmas gift…. a day late

December 26, 2015

Today, Dec. 26, we gift you with Larry Elder’s column, “15 Questions for the Dem candidates.” The queries, never posed by the debate moderators, provide thought-provoking reading.

If you were masochistic enough to watch the recent dreary Democrat debate — purposely scheduled on a  pre-holiday Saturday night to exclude even the most ardent politicos with lives — you’d have noticed nothing near the caliber of these questions was asked. The reason is not rocket science. Even registered Democrats have trouble believing the less than trustworthy Hillary Clinton.


Austin Hill: RIP

November 16, 2015

Former Valley KFYI talk show host, Austin Hill has died suddenly in Boise, Idaho the local KTVB-7 reports.

To say that life is fragile is an understatement. Austin Hill appeared on a Post Debate Special with J.D. Hayworth this past Tuesday Night on Newsmax TV.

Though the multi-talented Hill was a nationally syndicated conservative talk radio host, many Arizona listeners will recall him as a co-host of the popular ‘Liddy & Hill Show’ broadcast on KFYI 550-AM radio in Phoenix 2003 – 2005 where he shared the mic with Tom Liddy.

Our condolences go out to his family and friends.


Dole endorses Jeb! Establishment keeps on truckin’

November 12, 2015

There’s a strong sense of irony as Bob Dole — who lost as the 1996 Republican presidential candidate — now endorses single-digit Jeb Bush, who will not secure the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.

Former U.S.Sen. Dole, a severely wounded World War II vet, used Veterans Day to announce he had joined Jeb Bush’s campaign as its National Veterans’ Chairman. Jeb Bush never served in the military. 

“I will do all I can to be helpful to Jeb’s campaign,” Dole, now 93, pledged. His proven leadership skills “will fix the country.”

“I think he’s the most qualified, and we need somebody with experience and there are a lot of good candidates — I like nearly all of them,” Dole said of Jeb Bush and the rest of the field. He then added, “Except Cruz.”

Last year, at the Conservative Political Action Committee conference, Ted Cruz offended Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney, all members of the GOP establishment, when he challenged their moderate political postures that didn’t resonate with conservative voters.

“All of us remember President Dole, and President McCain and President Romney,” Cruz told the CPAC crowd. “Those are good men, they’re all decent men but when you don’t stand and draw a clear distinction, when you don’t stand for principle, Democrats celebrate.”

At the time, Cruz noted the “heroic” military service of Sens. Dole and McCain, which he said he greatly respected, but made clear he would not hesitate to talk about substantive matters of conservative principle that are important to bringing Republicans to victory — even if others may disagree.

That fragrant scent is ripe truth.
