Ringside at AZ GOP: A.J. LaFaro takes on Robert Graham

July 24, 2015

LaFaro victorious, hoisting truth and fearlessness against McEstablishment

From the ICYMI Department:  Tucson’s conservative News & Talk 104.1 KQTH radio host James T. Harris interviewed former Maricopa County Chairman A.J. LaFaro regarding the boorish actions of Arizona Republican Chairman Robert Graham.

Unbelievably, Graham stopped payment on the rent check for the Maricopa County office that just opened July 13 in Tempe. County GOP officials were notified of Graham’s reprehensible action by the bank. The usually brash Graham went uncharacteristically mute, giving no prior notice of his inconceivable actions to either current Maricopa County Republican Chairman Tyler Bowyer or County GOP Treasurer David Ludwig.

Graham, a committed McCain and establishment ally was obviously engaging in political retribution against Bowyer, who hosted and appeared onstage with Donald Trump during his Phoenix appearance. The July 11, event drew 5,000 attendees, people later marginalized by John McCain as “crazies.”*

Seeing Red AZ covered Graham’s unconscionable behavior in “AZ GOP’s Robert Graham’s spiteful retribution,” using background information by Frosty Taylor, editor of MCRC Republican Briefs.

Opening his radio interview with A.J. LaFaro, James T. Harris read the Seeing Red AZ introduction and continued to discuss the matter with LaFaro, punctuated by the entire Briefs report.

Listen to the informative interview. You’ll quite possibly find out more than you ever knew about the ruthless hierarchy of the Arizona Republican Party. Conservative A.J. LaFaro does a fine job of exposing the unsavory McUnderbelly.

Here’s an example:

“Robert Graham is pathetic,” states LaFaro. “And his latest stunt is just one more reason he needs to resign immediately or be recalled   I’ve said all along that Robert Graham has sold his soul to the devil and to the RINO establishment here in AZ — John McCain, Jeff Flake and Jon Kyl to name a few….”

Our thanks to A.J. LaFaro for speaking the truth and continuing to give conservatives a voice.

* When interviewed by Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly Thursday evening, McCain was asked about his characterization of conservatives as “crazies.” The slippery McCain chuckled and said he was merely “joking.” Unfortunately, O’Reilly let the deceptive McCain off the hook without any further prodding. Arizonans are more attuned. McCain, known for brandishing insults and his salty tongue, brushed off his derogatory depiction of conservatives claiming it was made in jest while dismissing the term “crazies” as a warm tribute. “I have town hall meetings all over Arizona. A guy stands up and tells me I’m crazy, I view it as a term of endearment,” McCain said.


It’s official! Dr. Kelli Ward announces for U.S. Senate

After decades of McCain, her fresh, new voice is compelling, as Kelli Ward invites Arizonans to join her:  “Let’s shake up Washington together.”


Thomas Sowell’s birthday reflections

July 12, 2015

In today’s “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter,” Dr. Thomas Sowell —- who on June 30, celebrated his 85th birthday —- proves while pounding out words on a keyboard, that few of us can aspire to be as smart as this gifted man is.

Reading his wisdom will certainly be a step in the right direction. Here is, “Looking Back,” also running under the title, “A legacy of Clichés.”

Keep reading his columns.  You’ll be on track as Mensa material.


SCOTUS uses politically incorrect term “alien”

June 15, 2015

Bravo!

KERRY, SECRETARY OF STATE, ET AL. v. DIN

Argued February 23, 2015 — Decided June 15, 2015 — Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the opinion. Justices Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy concurred.  Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the dissent.

Fauzia Din petitioned to have her husband, Kanishka Be­rashk, a resident citizen of Afghanistan and former civil servant in the Taliban regime, classified as an “immediate relative” entitled to priority immigration status.

Din came to the U.S. as a refugee in 2000, and became a naturalized citizen in 2007. She filed a petition to have Kanishka Berashk, whom she married in 2006, classified as her immediate relative.

The court refers to the husband as an “unadmitted and nonresident alien,” with no right of entry into the United States, and no cause of action to press in furtherance of his claim for admission.

Seeing Red AZ covered the politically correct language usage handed down from on high at the Associated Press, by the Senior VP and Executive Editor on April 3, 2012. We compared the new Stylebook mandates to George Orwell’s Newspeak in the book “1984” in our post, “ Winston Smith: Alive and well at Associated Press.”

It’s reassuring to know the U.S. Supreme Court still understands the meaning of words.


Flag Day: A fitting birthday for a proud American

June 14, 2015

Flag_Day

Happy birthday to both our flag and our sheriff

Today, Flag Day, is also the birthday of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. How fitting that this proud American, the son of Italian immigrants, celebrates his own special day with that honoring one of the enduring symbols of our liberty. As we fly our flags today, it’s worth reflecting on the many legal immigrants who came to this country through the front door, learned the language of our country, joyfully became citizens, and worked tirelessly to make lives as Americans in this great nation.

Sheriff Arpaio’s distinguished career in law enforcement, including worldwide assignments with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, are indicative of the national pride instilled in such grateful immigrant American families, appreciative of the opportunities afforded them. He concluded his remarkable federal career as head of the DEA for Arizona. Read his bio here.

Flag Day traditions are a meaningful part of our nation’s history. Facts regarding the background of this uniquely American holiday are provided by the National Flag Day Foundation. Take a few minutes and acquaint yourself with some of the fascinating information provided. Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States on June 14, 1777.

 I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Sen. Sessions: The straight scoop on Obamatrade

June 12, 2015

If, like many of us, you have questions about the complexities of the fast-tracking of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and its multifaceted related appendages —-  and want clarification regarding the authority transferred from Congress to the Executive and, ultimately, to international bureaucrats via this bill, it is logically  explained here.

Sen. Jeff Sessions is a man of integrity. The U.S. Senator from Alabama possesses a legal background few can match. He began his career as an Assistant U S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama. Later, he was nominated by President Reagan to serve as the U.S. Attorney for Alabama’s Southern District, a position he held for 12 years. Sessions was then elected Alabama Attorney General, serving as the state’s chief legal officer until he entered the U.S. Senate in 1997. In 2014, the people of Alabama, who obviously appreciate their senator, overwhelmingly voted to return Sessions to the Senate for a fourth term, with more than 97 percent of all votes cast.

Sen. Sessions does a masterful job explaining what Obamatrade actually is. Read Critical Alert: Fast-track would pre-approve formation of sweeping transnational union.


Perennial candidate Van Steenwyk aids McCain

June 5, 2015

Arrogance is never attractive. When it’s attached to a marginal man possessing little other than a colossal ego, it becomes a sight to turn away from. That’s exactly what serious Arizona voters need to do with perennial candidate Clair Van Steenwyk.

John McCain does not represent us. He has been in Washington D.C over three decades and is looking 80 squarely in the eye, yet he tells us he still has more to do. Thank you very much John, but we’ve had our fill of your leftward lurches and colluding with Democrats against the Republicans you claim to want to represent.

Clair Van Steenwyk, a Sun City West retiree, who has run for nearly every conceivable political office, is unfortunately back to his old tricks. Usually he is regarded as a gnat-like irritant. When he challenged U.S. Rep. Trent Franks last year he embarrassingly carried 27% of the vote to Franks’ 73%. 

This time it‘s serious, when every vote counts in the effort to unseat the multi-censured John McCain. Arizonans have an actual conservative choice with state senator Kelli Ward, a woman with brains and a following.  Van Steenwyk has decided that the time is right to reprise the spoiler role played by Jimmie Lee Deakin who gave McCain the boost he needed to defeat popular conservative challenger and former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth in 2010 by dividing the vote.

Many regarded Jimmie Lee as a diversionary puppet for McCain. His home, which had been in foreclosure, was mysteriously rescued from a trustee sale after the election.

Though Clair Van Steenwyk engenders little support and wins even fewer votes, the narcissistic 70-year-old retiree who held a variety of unrelated jobs during his younger years, is much like a spoiled child craving attention. He struts and prances saying little of consequence, but clearly relishing his serial moments in the political spotlight.

In 2010, many conservatives suspected Deakin, who like Van Steenwyk claimed a tea party following, of being a covert McCain recruit. Money is not an issue to McCain. Besides being one of the wealthiest members of the U.S. Senate, his longtime lobbyist connections provide him with the ability to spend extravagantly on promoting and reinventing himself for the too often disengaged electorate.

Sen. Kelli Ward, 46, provides Arizona conservatives a vibrant choice.  We are all too familiar with the  rancid status quo rife with manipulation, colluding with liberals against us and not representative of our values.

U.S. Senate terms are six long years. It’s time to act smart and replace John McCain with a winner. Sen. Kelli Ward fills the bill. An accomplished woman —- a physician —- serving her second term in the Arizona senate, she has been traveling the state, sizing up her support. Unlike McCain, who receives jeers, boos and turned backs, she has been met with enthusiastic crowds who see her conservative perspective as manna from political heaven.

Thinking voters need to reject the ego-massaging candidacy of Clair Van Steenwyk.  The sole beneficiary of his senate run will be John McCain.
