Chamber of Comworse: Not a benign business supporting entity

June 4, 2019

Amid speculation that former House Speaker Paul Ryan will be tapped to lead the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, it’s worth remembering the longstanding association between the open borders group’s members and like-thinking Ryan.

In 2015, prior to becoming Speaker, but looking to advance the possibility, Ryan appointed the Chamber of Commerce’s lobbyist David Hoppe as his own chief of staff. Hoppe, like a serial sweetheart, got passed around. He previously worked for Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl and former senate minority leader, Trent Lott. Hoppe’s corporate clients have had significant business before congress.

The Last Refuge’s post, ”And Yet Again – U.S. Chamber of Commerce Announces Goal To Destroy Nationalists and Conservative Politicians…” provides the unsavory back story, which has likely only worsened since it was written. The post begins with these words:

”We spend a lot of time following Tom Donohue and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce simply because if you trace any tentacle of globalist advancement from DC back to its origin you’ll find Donohue and the CofC at the nucleus.”

It was no secret that the Chamber of Commerce declared war on conservatives years ago. As Roll Call noted at the time, the chamber’s “top targets in 2016 will be right-wing, tea party candidates” and its ultimate goal is to reportedly win back “the soul of the Republican Party” for the GOP establishment by helping elect more moderate candidates “in contested primaries to strengthen their hand during policy debates on the Hill.” That year, the CofC promised to wage a $100 million dollar campaign against conservatives.

Locally Arizona has had disgraceful tool Glenn Hamer leading the Chamber. Read about him inGlenn Hamer: Heretic betrays GOP again.” Before taking up arms against the Republican Party, he was actually in its employ, as executive director, no less, where he negotiated for his new post while still being paid by the AZ GOP. Immediately after making the move, he endorsed far left Democrat Janet Napolitano over the Republican candidate for governor.  And what a surprise….Hamer previously honed his duplicitous skills toiling as a legislative assistant to Jon Kyl. Open borders RINO deceit forms a full circle.

American Thinker’s May 14, 2019 report, titled,MAGA vs. the U.S. Chamber of Commercedetails how the Chamber of Commerce and its president Thomas Donohue launched a battle against Donald Trump and his ‘America First’ platform very early on. For 18 months during the run-up to the 2016 election, the Chamber spared no effort to demonize Trump while carrying water for the Hillary Clinton campaign. The Chamber’s client base — opposing Donald Trump for his pro-America stance on illegal immigration, trade, and tariffs — have spent $100’s of millions to fight his agenda.

Paul Ryan currently sits on the board of Murdock’s new Fox Corp., a reconfigured stand-alone, publicly traded company, spun off as part of a $71.3 billion deal, controlled by Rupert Mudock’s liberal sons. Ryan, who as House Speaker double-talked on funding the border wall, would fit the CofC’s open border agenda like a kid glove.

Janet Napolitano drops “Big Sis” guise, becomes “Big Bro”*

April 26, 2019

Issues directive requiring California universities to quarantine students and staff unable to prove they were vaccinated against measles

Janet Napolitano —- formerly Arizona’s radically left-wing governor who took a midterm hike to ineffectively head the Department of Homeland Security for Barack Obama —- is currently the president of the University of California system. 

Longtime Arizonans rate her as the undisputed worst governor in memory. Wielding her veto pen in a manic rage over bills passed through the GOP controlled state legislature, she earned the nickname “J-No.”

Lax leftist Napolitano, bonded to an open border policy, was renowned for her dismissively blasé retort when frustrated Arizonans pleaded for border security: “Show me a 50-foot fence, and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder.”

Called “Big Sis,” for her ham-handed tactcs, Napolitano has now fully morphed into “Big Bro,” mandating that California universities quarantine students and staff who are unable to prove they were vaccinated against measles. CBS 2 Los Angeles carries the full report.

Years preceding the shameful attempts to keep Judge Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, Napolitano was integral to the attempt to defame Clarence Thomas as he was put through a brutal hearing prior to his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court nearly three decades ago.  A black, conservative justice was more than the left could tolerate. Napolitano represented Anita Hill, who suddenly recalled offensive comments she attributed to Thomas —- though she inexplicably continued to follow Thomas, who vigorously denied her charges, from job to job.

It’s a sure bet there are few who miss “Big Bro/J-No” but for those who have a hankering to see her, she has authored a book targeting President Trump as a bigot for enacting national security measures. She will be reviewing it and signing copies next month for a mere $45 fee.

Using these printable coupons, treat yourself and take a few guests out to dinner at Red Lobster for the same amount.  Crab or lobsters and shrimp, even with their antenna intact, are easier on the eyes than Janet Napolitano any day of the week.

Here she is with her gal-pal Kyrsten Sinema out for a night on the town a few years ago.

Phx’ farcical mayoral election today: Leftists rule

March 12, 2019

Today is Election Day in the City of Phoenix. It’s not just any election, mind you. It’s a Special Election — for mayor. The seat was left open when the former deeply committed mayor, Greg Stanton boogied to run for congress in Congressional District 9, following Kyrsten Sinema’s departure. On his way out the door, Stanton doled out $2.4 Mil of our tax dollars to a La Raza ally. When initially elected mayor, he received a congratulatory call from then-President Barack Obama and his Secretary of Homeland INsecurity, Janet Napolitano — clearly exposing the farce of “non-partisan” city elections.

For her part, Sinema magically ran for, and was elected to, the U.S. Senate — without ever once mentioning her party affiliation.

If you’re wondering about the election today, there’s not much to bother yourself with. Both candidates are Democrats. The only choice is the “conservative” liberal or the straight-up, liberal liberal. It’s all a disgraceful charade. Council District 5 and 8 seats are also on the ballot since those are the seats Valenzuela and Gallego abandoned.

It does sound confusing, but just think of it as Democrat politics as usual. In this case Daniel Valenzuela has political operative friends who have been financing mailers that describe the firefighter unionist and committed liberal as a “conservative,” when nothing could be further from the truth. Moses Sanchez, who ran and lost claiming GOP credentials, has endorsed Valenzuela. He joins other AZ Republicrats Woods and Romley (appropriately at the bottom of the endorsement list) who have made careers of endorsing liberals. Woods recently made good on his longtime promise and re-registered as a Dem, losing his swag. Also among Valenzuela’s endorsers are McCain insiders Robert Delgado and Doug Yonko, both honchos in Cindy Hensley McCain’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship empire.

Kate Gallego, who was the object of incendiary race-baiting when she ran for the city council seat she has abandoned for the mayor’s race, has the better credentials. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Harvard University and earned an MBA from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania — though her endorsements are as radically leftist as Valenzuela’s. Her ex-husband, U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, who she divorced while pregnant with their only child, has gallantly endorsed her candidacy for mayor.

Arizona voters need a scorecard to keep up with the ambitious, reconfigured Democrats and their stranglehold on the city of Phoenix and encroachment on D.C. in the Senate and House.

If you’re up for this, election results can be viewed here. We suggest you watch the on an empty stomach. Polls close at 7 PM.


Kyrsten Sinematic theatre of the absurd

December 26, 2018

AZ Republic dubs Kyrsten Sinema “Arizonan of the Year’

Count on this recent edition of Sinematic thrall becoming the absurd norm: Accompanied by a nearly full page illustration and a headline blasting, “She’s a real trailblazer,” is the newspaper’s choice for ‘Arizonan of the Year.’ There is entire jump page, replete with more oversize photos, extolling the virtues of former Green Party candidate, foul-mouthed, self acknowledged Socialist with Commie ties, bisexual atheist and practiced liar Kyrsten Sinema — who heaped praise on John McCain to win over Arizona newcomers and less knowledgeable residents who bought into his self aggrandized history. Every vote counts, regardless of the deception used to gain them.

Sinema’s the author of “Unite and Conquer” which details her endorsement of the use of deceptive techniques to reach victory:

“Universal” sounds socialist, so say “affordable healthcare” I’ve become a huge fan of research. It’s helped me as a candidate learn to talk in ways that voters can understand. For example, I used to say that I wanted universal health-care coverage in Arizona, which went over like a ton of bricks. Turns out, Arizonans hear the word “universal” and think “socialism”–or “pinko commie.” But when I say that I want all Arizonans to have access to affordable, quality health care, Arizonans agree wholeheartedly. Same basic idea, different language. Research is what teaches us these differences so that we can relate to voters in ways that are authentic and meaningful for them.” (Source: Unite and Conquer, by Kyrsten Sinema, p.166-167 , Jul 1, 2009)

The foreword was written by her onetime gal pal and radical leftist Janet Napolitano.  The newspaper characterizes the book with these words: “If she continues to follow her own advice, Sinema could be the tonic for what ails America’s body politic.”

Close your mouth.  You might catch a fly!

The aptly nicknamed AZ Repukelick obviously was just revving up with its Hillary endorsement.  It devotedly went to the pre-election mat for Sinema. Nothing she has said or done mattered. The far left extremist concealed her radical and anti-Semitic past, magically transformed herself into a slimmed-down, soft-spoken, stylishly blonde aisle-crosser who deliberately hid her party affiliation and “just wants to get things done.” Her crude language currently in cold storage, Sinema is now suddenly transmogrified into an esteemed Democrat U.S. Senator representing Arizona. The newspaper, subtly acknowledging her propensity for deceit…redefines her as  “reflect[ing] the brand of 100 percent Arizona individualism,” ranking her along with other less than straight shooters, from Republicrats McCain, Sandra O’Connor and yes, Barry Goldwater to leftists Cesar Chavez and Mo Udall.

The AZ Republic is in orgasmic throes at the prospect of Sinema as a U.S. Senator. It even simultaneously published a vicious Benson cartoon mocking far more accomplished Republican U.S. Rep. Martha McSally, recently appointed to the other senate seat, to accompany the Sinematic epic.

The bizarre editorial concludes with this bit of asininity as it calls her brand of politics “revolutionary… representing a refreshing, badly needed change”:

As a senator, she’ll have the biggest stage of her political career. She’ll have the task of delivering political clout to Arizona, which has lost the senatorial longevity and gravitas of McCain and Jeff Flake. We don’t think Sinema will have any trouble making her mark with the kind of flair and substance that reflects well on Arizona – a state with a history of producing impressive public figures who write their own stories.

This April 2, 2017 post will assist our readers more fully understand the increasing intensity of the reporting distortions and psychotic duplicity that drives the failing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper.


Higher education reaches its nadir*

December 6, 2018

Illegal invaders now charity recipients, courtesy of Berkeley

Gone are the days when a university degree was indicative of attaining a higher education. Nurtured in a curriculum of liberal indoctrination from the earliest grades, students are pawns in an ideological crusade. This appalling example from Edina, Minnesota is not an anomaly, but is reflective of teaching throughout the United States.

Is it any wonder that by the time the barely out of wet-diaper toddlerdom, kindergartners are propagandized, matriculating as brainwashed high school students, ultimately reaching institutions such as Berkeley or Princeton, they engage in full-throated lunacy?

The student government at the University of California, Berkeley, “voted to financially fund the migrant caravan in a resolution passed by the student senate,” as Breitbart reported. “US imperialism and white colonialism has been implemented in Central American countries,” said a teary-eyed student, adding that she would be ashamed to see anyone in the student senate vote against funding the migrant caravan. Once again students illiterate of history accuse anyone they disagree with as being “Nazis,” although there are no brutal labor camps with ovens specially constructed for humans or gas streaming from shower heads, killing men, women and children given bars of soap to make the victims more compliant. Janet Napolitano, formerly Arizona’s radically leftist governor and Obama’s appointee as a worthless Homeland Security chieftain, is now the president of the University of California system.

On the East coast, Princeton sophomore Noa Wollstein was so offended by the “toxic masculinity” expressed in the song, “Kiss the Girl,” she was moved to write to the student newspaper, The Daily Princetonian to complainShe declared the Disney song performed by an all-male a cappella group, the Princeton Tigertones, was misogynistic and dismissive of consent. In the cartoon film, The little Mermaid, it is sung by Sebastian a talking crab, urging him to kiss Ariel, the little mermaid.

“Remove the context of magic and mermaids,” Wollstein wrote, “and the lyrics blatantly encourage a man to try to make physical advances on a woman without her consent.”

FrontPage mag exposed, “Another week of leftist lunacy,” writing, “One worrying illustration of this comes from – none other than – the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) with, chapters at more than 500 universities and colleges throughout the U.S. According to Campus Reform, the AAUP is urging its members to combat legislative proposals meant for “the protection of free speech” on campus.”

Imagine that?

Resurrecting John McShadegg?

August 13, 2018

Dissecting the disconnect

In this fawning interview by Arizona Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Glenn Hamer, former Arizona Congressman John Shadegg is talking like a Trump supporter, which should raise the antenna on anyone who pays attention to the state’s political scene.

The Chamber, representing business interests that prefer cheap labor to American workers, has never advocated for a secure border. Illegal labor profiteers have a bottom line agenda that isn’t in sync with conservative voters.

The dichotomy is stark, since President Trump campaigned and won on building a border wall.  Unlike John McCain who strolled the border and talked, with tongue firmly planted in his cheek, about completingthe danged fenceto get elected, Trump meant it. And it wasn’t a “danged fence.”  It’s a secure wall. Jeff Flake, pivoted into the U.S. Senate by McCain and then retiring Jon Kyl, played the same pre-election game. Voters, so tired of his deception that they handed him his head in his hands with an 18% approval rating after a single senate term, caused him to withdraw from his reelection bid.

Deceitful McCain, it should be remembered, immediately after the votes were counted, embarked with his now-lame duck underling Jeff Flake, on constructing not a “fence” but rather the amnesty-bent Gang of Eight, colluding with Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Robert Menendez, Michael Bennet —  all open border leftists and a couple of other squish Republicrats,  Lindsey Grahamnesty and Marco Rubio —  in a concerted effort to push amnesty for illegal invaders, yet again. Fortunately this attempt also failed.

While in Congress, Shadegg went on record with the New York Times, 3000 miles from his home congressional district, boorishly insulting Arizonans who desired border security as “xenophobic and intolerant.

It’s generational. John Shadegg’s son, Stephen, worked for McCain and is now managing the senate campaign of the duplicitous Martha McSally, (revealing video) often referred to on this site as Sally McCain.

And Hamer? Prior to joining the Arizona Chamber of Commerce, the former Kyl aide was executive director of the Arizona Republican Party. Immediately after taking the Chamber’s top job, he opportunistically endorsed liberal Democrat Janet Napolitano, then running for governor against solid conservative, Len Munsil.

Dr. Steve Ferrara: Best choice for U.S. Rep. in CD 9

July 30, 2018

Moses Sanchez is the sole Republican running for Phoenix Mayor

Not long ago local radio talk show co-host and author Seth Liebsohn retired from the Seth and Chris Show to run for Congress in Arizona’s Congressional District 9, The duo’s afternoon drive time political program provided name ID to Leibsohn, giving him a boost as the campaign took off. The soaring trajectory didn’t last long. An entirely avoidable snafu occurred that derailed the short-lived campaign.

Now Liebsohn is endorsing another Republican in the race. Steve Ferrara, MD, a political fresh face, confidently identifying himself as a conservative on his website.

Dr. Ferrara, is a military veteran and medical doctor with a compelling personal story. Deployed into combat in Afghanistan he transformed combat casualty care by pioneering life and limb saving endovascular surgical techniques on the battlefield. His work history also placed him on Capitol Hill, providing extraordinary background for the CD 9 race.

Ferrara and his wife, Elizabeth, an active duty Navy Captain, are the parents of two teenage children.

Former Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, a liberal political opportunist who initially filed to run for secretary of state, recently resigned in order to run for congress. Incredibly egotistical, in 2017 he actually warned the President of the United States to “stay out of my city!“ as reported by AZ Family Channel 5. Undeterred, Trump came and addressed a huge, supportive crowd.

Democrat Stanton, a known tyrant who callously disregards the voices of city residents, pulled a costly fast one as he exited the mayor’s office, insuring votes from the La Raza open borders crowd, by gifting them $2.4 million in taxpayer funds. Known for supporting unpopular issues, Stanton even lied about lifting the oppressive food tax as he gave large “retention bonuses” to city employees. When first elected in 2011, he received a congratulatory call from the overjoyed duo, Barack Obama and Janet Napolitano.

The Lego-building-block-shaped district cuts a swath through central Phoenix making its way through Tempe and South Scottsdale, west Mesa, northwestern Chandler and areas of southeast Phoenix including the Ahwatukee district (Map here)

Moses Sanchez, another political newcomer, is the lone Republican in the Phoenix Mayor’s race, As usual, it’s bloated with Democrats, though the council and mayor run under a bogus “nonpartisan” guise. All we know about him is on his campaign website. Mayoral candidates typically don’t make the rounds of Republican district meetings because the city is deep blue in the red state of Arizona. The last Republican elected  mayor of the nation’s fifth largest city was a 1994 GOP pretender named Skip Rimsza.

As a young boy, along with his parents and sister, Sanchez immigrated to the U.S. from Panama. A Navy veteran of 21 years, including a tour of duty in Afghanistan, he continues to serve in the reserves. He graduated college with an MBA in Business Management, owns a small business and teaches in the community college system. Moses and his Arizona native wife Maria Manriquez M.D., live in Ahwatukee.
