Gruesome killers on southern border confirm need for wall

November 21, 2017

The United States has a generous system for legal applications for those who can benefit our nation

The grisly murder of Border Patrol Agent Rogilio Martinez, 36, who was ambushed by illegal aliens he was tracking, once again highlights the lawlessness on our southern border.  It is being reported that Agent Martinez’ skull was crushed when struck multiple times with a rock. Another agent — still unidentified — has suffered “extensive injuries,“ and has been hospitalized in serious condition.

Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, is quoted as saying, “The other agent arrived on scene a short time later and was also ambushed and struck in the head with what is believed to have been a rock or rocks. These disgusting acts and complete disregard for human life need to stop immediately. Family members of slain Agent Martinez will never get to see him come home again all because we have failed to secure our borders from such criminals.”

According to the report, the unconscionable attacks occurred in the Big Bend Sector of Texas, about 30 miles north of Mexico. The FBI is leading the investigation while Border Patrol Special Operations agents and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Air and Marine Operations  aircrews continue to search the area for the attackers.

American cities have become havens for illegal aliens. Liberals in charge have created sanctuaries for them. The monetary cost to American taxpayers is encroaching on $150 billion a year. The costs in crime is incalculable.

Grant Ronnebeck, a 21 year old Mesa clerk shot in the face by an illegal previously given a plea deal, is sadly but one of countless others senselessly murdered here in the Valley. Nationally, the numbers are astronomical. The murder of Kate Steinle called attention to the practice of allowing deported illegals to keep returning and commit even more heinous acts.

A secure nation is a basic right included in the Preamble to the Constitution. It‘s not a political football. The time to build the wall is now. It’s one of the primary reasons people across the nation rallied to support the presidency of Donald Trump. For decades Arizona’s politicians have given lip service to this crucial issue when elections roll around and then revert to putting foreign nationals who have illegally breached our border in the forefront of their agenda, with so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” as McCain and Kyl were dedicated to repeatedly promoting, or being instrumental in forming the “Gang of Eight,” as orchestrated by McCain and Flake.

We have the opportunity for a clean slate of senators, with Jeff Flake’s decision to retire after acknowledging the reality of his abysmal polling numbers — and octogenarian John McCain’s brain cancer diagnosis, which will limit the six-year term he was elected to in 2016.

Ask your state legislative candidates their position on the border. Don’t accept double talk. We’ve already seen where that’s gotten us These double-crossers all ran as conservatives. For a memory refresher, these were the blatant campaign lies told by Senators Jon Kyl, John McCain and Jeff Flake.

It’s time to ditch McCain’s negative influence, not embrace it

November 20, 2017

MCRC Briefs makes mention of an upcoming fundraiser referred to as a “Red Hot & Blue BBQ.” The event, benefits two “moderate” incumbent state Representatives, Jill Norgaard (LD-18) and Maria Syms (LD-28) and one retread candidate, Shawnna Bolick, who has switched legislative districts for a better shot at the political golden ring. She’s previously missed the mark twice in her old hunting ground.

The event, featuring Diamondbacks legend Luis Gonzalez will be hosted at the Paradise Valley home of Debbie and Bill Cheatham.

Many remember Bill Cheatham as the McCain Inc. backed choice, clobbered in his attempt to unseat conservative Rob Haney as Maricopa County Republican Chairman. Cheatham not only failed, he failed miserably.

Haney, the former Legislative District 11 chairman (now reconfigured as 28), was swept to victory garnering almost 70 percent of the ballots cast in the county race. His slate of officers also won overwhelmingly. The six Maricopa County Committee by-law changes were also big winners, as each won by over 1,000 votes.

The full account of that Jan.8, 2011 meeting can be read here.

And while we’re on the topics of actual conservatives vs. the McCain influence, women candidates, and the 2018 election cycle, take a look at the most recent polling figures in the Arizona U.S. Senate race, provided by Phoenix-based OH Predictive Insights. Conservative Dr. Kelli Ward, running an issues centered campaign, crushes CD-2 incumbent Martha McSally in the primary. Outside of her left-leaning Pima County base, McSally’s name ID is low. Revily polling positions Ward as the front-runner in an early match up with Democrat Kyrsten Sinema (CD-9), who has magically transformed herself from radical to mainstream. (The linked post was written just before Jeff Flake shut down his reelection campaign.)

This Arizona race will be defining not only for our state, but will have far-reaching consequences nationally. .After years in the Republlicrat wilderness, we finally have a conservative candidate. Do what you can to get Dr. Kelli Ward elected.


Jeff Flake does the expected: Supports Democrat

November 15, 2017

SRAZ has covered the suspiciously timed allegations aimed at former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, now running for the U.S. Senate in that state.

On Monday, Jeff Flake, who opted out of his own senate race in Arizona after being faced with the reality of abysmal polling numbers, gratuitously jumped into the fray, lodging his own assault on Roy Moore.

“Just to be clear,“ Flake tweeted, “if the choice is between Roy Moore and a Democrat, I would run to the polling place to vote for the Democrat.”

This is not abhorrent behavior. The aptly named Flake, it should be remembered, escorted Merrick Garland through the halls of the U.S. Senate, introducing Obama’s lame duck choice for the vacant seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, as he attempted to garner votes for the Democrat‘s confirmation. Had he been successful, the dramatic leftward lurch of the high court, would have had irrevocable negative consequences. 

Fortunately, though much to Flake’s dismay, Donald Trump was elected president. He nominated Tenth Circuit Appellate Judge Neil Gorsuch who was confirmed to fill the seat made available by the unexpected death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.

Amnesty supporter Jeff Flake has long confused the two political parties and what they stand for. He’s had his snout in the public trough so long, he’s unable to discern the stark differences. They each have platforms, which he obviously has never taken the time to review.


Race baiting Dem Ralph Northam elected VA Governor

November 7, 2017

We’ve all seen the despicable campaign ad depicting a driver in his pickup truck, flying a confederate flag, with a ‘Gillespie for Governor‘bumper sticker on the back. The truck sports a ‘Don’t tread on Me” license plate as it careens down a roadway, appearing to try to mow down minority children.

In a race that was neck-in-neck as the returns first came in, Ed Northam, an ally of Barack Obama, pulled ahead in the Northern Virginia outskirts of Washington, DC. after shamelessly linking Gillespie with white supremacists. The final unofficial results are Northam 53% to Gillespie’s 45%.

Titled “American Nightmare,” the ad, released by the left-wing group Latino Victory Fund has been airing through Election Day on Spanish-language stations in key Democrat strongholds.

Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder’s group the National Democratic Redistricting Committee has pumped over a $1 million into the Virginia governor’s race to ensure Democrat’s redistricting efforts in advance of the 2020 Census.

Let’s hope Republicans are paying rock solid attention and are engaged in more worthwhile pursuits than fighting President Trump, as Arizona’s pathetic excuses for U.S. Senators are doing.


Weekly Standard gives cover to Jeff Flake — literally & figuratively

November 5, 2017

In recent years, magazines have had a tough time, with many of them folding. News magazines are especially hard hit since the latest information is readily available in your pocket. Digital delivery has dramatically altered the dissemination of news. This fact is woefully evident in the October 30, 2017 issue of The Weekly Standard. Given the time consuming nature of writing, printing and mailing, the latest issue is filled with old news by the time it reaches the mailbox. We’re talking postal delivery, not email.

Case in point is the Weekly Standard cover story titled, “Is there room for Jeff Flake in Donald Trump’s GOP?”

Senior writer John McCormack is obviously a Flake fan, which means he’s likely an eastern liberal. If he had his finger more firmly on the pulse of Arizona conservatives, his article would have been less fawning and more factual. But then again, preceding the 2016 election, he authored a report, “How Trump can be stopped.” He was wrong then, and he’s wrong now. Donald Trump was victorious over 16 other GOP primary candidates, vanquished scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton, and now sits in the Oval Office.

The current article could have been written last year, since it missed Jeff Flake’s showboating senate speech opting out of his reelection bid. He tried to configure his decision based on not being able to be “complicit” with President Trump, when in fact he was trailing family practice physician and former two term state senator Dr. Kelli Ward, a principled conservative, by hefty double digits in recent polls.

The author gives Flake undeserved kudos for “cutting pork,” which was Flake’s initial theme to get elected. How does this square with Flake’s ongoing amnesty for illegals bent? According to this Fox News report the estimated yearly financial burden to American citizens is $135 billion.

McCormack‘s screed is filled with errors. We’ll stick with the most glaringly twisted. In describing Flake’s initial senate run in 2012,  he plays fast and loose with the facts, using these well-chosen words:  “Five short years ago, Flake cruised to victory in his first GOP Senate primary with nearly 70 percent of the vote.” What McCormack fails to relate is that Flake won the General Election by a razor-thin 3 points over George W. Bush’s former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona a registered Independent until he ran for retiring Jon Kyl’s open seat as a newly minted Democrat. Carmona’s background is compelling. Rising from a high school dropout raised on the tough streets of NYC’s Harlem, to a stint in the Army, where he earned his GED. He later became a police officer, a nurse and finally a surgeon and professor of medicine at the University of Arizona.  Along the way Carmona earned a Masters and PhD. He received the Purple Heart in recognition of  his combat actions in Vietnam.

And Jeff Flake? Aside from a career feeding at the public trough, he served a short time as director of the libertarian, not conservative, Goldwater Institute. Prior to his overly long political career — he reneged on his pledge to serve 3 two-year terms — Flake worked as a lobbyist and registered foreign agent for Rossing Uranium, one of the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel,  operating mines in the African country of Namibia. Flake earned a substantial salary opening doors in D.C. and promoting the firm which had deep financial ties to Iran.

Though McCormack mentions others who are considering entering the senate race, he neglects to reveal they are all tied to John McCain, the self-declared “maverick” who arrogantly ran for a sixth, six-year senate term at age 81. Now suffering from what his Mayo doctors refer to as an aggressive form of brain cancer, he continues to sick his finger in President Trump’s eye. In so doing, he insults the rest of us who voted for the man who is working to keep his campaign promises, despite as much opposition from Republicrat contrarians as from the liberals who don’t want Trump to succeed.


Jihadist murderer in NYC won diversity visa lottery

November 1, 2017

Senseless Jihadist attacks perpetrated by Muslims shouting ‘’Allahu Akbar”  — praising Allah — as they intentionally slaughter innocents going about their lives, is incomprehensible to those who practice other faiths.  The attacks are becoming so commonplace  that the mayor of New York City, where the latest carnage took place on Tuesday, referred to the deliberate terror attack that killed 8 and wounded 15 on a bicycle and jogging path as a “tragedy,” giving it the aura of something preventable. When a terrorist explosion occurred in New York City last year, London’s first Muslim Mayor Sadig Khan, then visiting New York, blandly referred to it  as “part and parcel” of life in a big city.

The Arizona Republic newspaper, which devoted countless front pages to destroying Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, was so blasé about this latest radical Islamic terrorist attack, it didn’t cover the massacre at all, relegating coverage to the B Section USA Today insert.

The most recent mass murderer Sayfullo Saipov, 29, entered a popular bicycle and pedestrian path mid-afternoon Tuesday in a rental van, mowing down victims before deliberately crashing into a school bus. One of the children returning home from school is reportedly in critical condition.

A bit of background is in order: Saipov, a Uzbekistan native, moved to the U.S. in 2010 under the Diversity Visa lottery, which is another irrational idea, intended to “diversify America,” springing forth from leftist Chuck Schumer — who has also partnered with John McCain and Jeff Flake on the notorious Gang of Eight amnesty scheme. At least 50,000 legally enter the U.S. through the Diversity Visa Lottery program each year, gifted with a permanent Visa

President Trump has renewed his call for “extreme vetting” of those entering the United States. But there are no reliable data bases in countries such as Uzbekistan. We need to shut down the myriad programs that allow for lax immigration. Within short order after assuming the presidency, Trump issued this order, and was met with opposition and slurs of racism.

Despite the ‘ho-hum’ attitude of the Arizona Republic, we are at war with those who want to impose 7th century Sharia law on free people in the West. The only Muslim voice that can be heard in opposition to this scheme is that of Scottsdale physician Dr.M. Zuhdi Jasser, founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, who has repeatedly warned against Islamic extremism. Yesterday, he was getting the usual workout when these atrocities occur, as the guest on a conservative local radio station and appearing on Fox News and other national media outlets.

His lone voice is not enough. Our immigration policies must change and our porous border must be secured. Political correctness has no place in the bottom line discussion of providing safety to Americans. Our Founders referred to it as “Promoting the general welfare to ourselves and our posterity.”


Dems’ connections to anti-Trump Russia dossier

October 31, 2017

Analyzing the “Russia probe”

House Intelligence Committee Chairman U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined conservative radio talk show host Laura Ingraham Monday as she debuted her new Fox News program, “The Ingraham Angle.”  Nunes called on the Department of Justice to “do its job” regarding leaks from major U.S. intelligence services.

Ingraham opened the inaugural edition of the show with a powerful monologue about what “America means to her and to regular Americans.”

Arizonans who attended the impressive kickoff of Dr. Kelli Ward‘s U.S. Senate campaign gave Laura Ingraham a sizzling Phoenix welcome as she endorsed Ward — sharing the stage with Breitbart News executive chairman Steve Bannon and former Arizona Congressman, now NewsMax host, JD Hayworth. Fox News’ Sean Hannity has also endorsed Ward.

This is Ingraham’s take on Jeff Flake’s anti-Trump swan song speech.

The Guardian, a British news source, reported in early January that it was none other than bitter presidential loser John McCain, a virulent Trump-hater, who personally passed what turned out to be a fake dossier alleging secret Trump-Russia contacts to then-FBI director James Comey. It’s difficult to forget Comey.  He’s the one who gave an undeserved legal break to corrupt Hillary Clinton— despite damning evidence against her.
