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.

Judge dismisses lawsuit filed by Flake’s son, ex-wife

August 12, 2018

Flaky Austin Flake and Logan Brown try and fail in another attempt to get rich on the backs of Maricopa County taxpayers

Federal Judge Neil Wake has dismissed the lawsuit brought by Austin Flake and his now ex-wife Logan, who has reclaimed her maiden name of Brown.

The case stemmed from dismissed animal cruelty charges the duo faced in the June 2014 heat related suffocation deaths of nearly two dozen dogs they supposedly were caring for at Green Acre Kennel in Gilbert. The facility was owned by Logan’s mother and step-father, MaLeisa and Jesse “Todd” Hughes, who were vacationing in Florida when the gruesome deaths occurred.

When the Flakes’ checked the kennel on the hot June 20th morning and witnessed the horrific scene, they did not call for veterinary assistance, opting to hose down the dying dogs, then callously piled their dead carcasses in a shed.

The pets sweltered to death, packed together in a steamy utility room, lacking air-conditioning. They had neither food nor water in their stomachs, according to the veterinarian who performed necropsies on the dogs.

On October 14, 2014, a Grand Jury indicted both couples with 21 felony counts and 7 misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals. Ultimately Logan’s parents served short sentences on fraud charges involving lying to the owners of the pets, telling them their dogs ran away. The Hughes’ took plea deals in lieu of going to trial. As defendants, each pleaded guilty to one count of facilitation to commit fraudulent schemes and artifices, and one count of cruelty to animals, both Class 6 felonies. Their sentences included 23 days in jail without the possibility of work release, work furlough, home detention or compliance monitoring.  The days they served equaled one day per dead dog.

After Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery dropped the 21 felony charges and 7 misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals against Austin and Logan Flake, the actual responsible parties, they filed a lawsuit against the taxpayers of Maricopa County and Sheriff Joe Arpaio, seeking $8 million to resurrect their formerly pristine reputations. They claim they were targeted by the Sheriff’s office and their characters were ruined by the investigation. A few $million each could go a long way to soothe their hurt feelings. Fortunately that effort went nowhere.

With their eyes still on the money prize, they angled for another civil trial, this time against the sheriff’s investigative detective.

But Judge Wake has now dismissed that lawsuit, ruling their attorney Stephen Montoya hadn’t provided evidence the detective intended to deprive the Flakes’ of their rights. Read the judge’s order.

SRAZ has written extensively about this tragic set of circumstances and the appalling flakes. Let’s hope this is the last we hear of these grifters. 


Martha Mc…McCain outed by Republic’s Montini

August 6, 2018

Martha McSally: Another deceptive McCain protégé

SRAZ has been referring to Martha McSally as Sally McCain since her entry into Arizona’s U.S. Senate race. It appears the Arizona Republic’s emaciated, far left columnist E. J. Montini has been reading our posts.

Don’t mistake his outing her as the latest version of John McCain’s Primary Election flipping and General Election flopping on border issues, indicates he’s seen the light and has gone conservative.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

Montini, an unrepentant liberal, is hoping whatever he does will help boost radical extremist Kyrsten Sinema, newly revamped and posing as an “independent problem solver,” into Arizona’s open U.S. Senate seat.

Longtime readers will remember when now-lame duck Jeff Flake, followed his McMentor’s same deceptive path to office in 2011. Flake’s double talk threw Republic then-editorialist Doug MacEachern into such a tailspin he declared Flake to be a mere “politician” — no longer a “statesman.”

In 2010 campaign mode, McCain strolled the border with then-Pinal County Sheriff Babeu, who after hearing McCain’s feigned declaration of commitment tocomplete the danged fence, solemnly stated, “Senator, you’re one of us”—  leading many to wonder what the actual inference was.

In a recent Glamour magazine interview McCain’s Trump-hating daughter, Meghan, was quoted as saying of her seriously ill father, “I’m scared of America without him.”

Americans who believe border security is national security, have been equally frightened of her father’s decades long promotion of amnesty for illegal alien invaders. 

We were stunned by his involvement in the now discredited “dossier” intended to take down President Trump, which he hand-delivered to then-FBI Director James Comey, while acting in concert with Hillary Clinton‘s campaign.

It was shocking to see a sitting U.S. Senator posing with Syrian rebels who became the leaders of ISIS — referring to them as “freedom fighters.”  But without Joe Lieberman to point out the differences, Dad was clearly at a disadvantage. 

McCain and McSally are interchangeable.

Vote principled conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate.  It’s time for a real change.


Tancredo exposes Flake’s grandstanding and obstructionism

August 5, 2018

Former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo, a renown conservative leader, has written a must read exposé on Jeff Flake, describing his “long record of betraying traditionally conservative principles.”

We urge you to read,Jeff Flake is a fake,” in which Trancredo outlines Flake’s ego-driven antics while comparing him to a spoiled teenager.

“Senator Flake,” he writes, “is the living embodiment of everything that has gone wrong with the GOP and the conservative movement in the last 30 years — everything President Trump is fixing.

For too long, politicians like Flake have claimed the conservative mantle while doing absolutely nothing to conserve Americans’ traditional way of life. No longer.”

Tancredo concludes, “Jeff Flake is a dinosaur — and it’s time for him and other Never Trumpers to go extinct.”


Jeff the Flake returns to Africa, prefers gov’t to U.S.

August 4, 2018

Loose cannon Flake embarrasses himself again

The aptly named Jeff Flake is once again in his beloved Africa.  He was first there on a church mission, later returning to Namibia in the 1990’s where he was employed as a registered foreign agent working for Rossing Uranium, a mining company with ties to Iran and one of the world‘s largest supplies of nuclear fuel. He lobbied on behalf of the company, opening doors in Washington D.C. —- a job, as the HuffPost points out, Flake did his best to keep under wraps as he campaigned for the U.S. House as a “political outsider.”

During his single senate term, due to expire with the coming election, fake Republican Flake cozied up to Barack Obama, and accompanied him and the congressional black caucus to Kenya, Obama’s familial homeland.

Now Flake, once again jetting at taxpayer’s expense, is in Zimbabwe, emulating Jimmy Carter by overseeing questionable elections in third world countries. Flake’s observation in the wake of deadly violence and claims of rigged results?  According to this Breitbart News report, “Democracy doesn’t get any better than this.” His vacuous tweet was enthusiastic.

This past year, Flake, too haughty and ignorant to be content merely being an American citizen, proudly referred to himself asa globalist.”

Not only does Flake bring to mind the liberal Jimmy Carter, 95, but also his far left counterpart, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, now 85. In 2012, she actually praised the South African Constitution (video) over the Constitution of the United States.

Flake is finishing his first and last senate term due to bottom dragging 18% approval ratings after incessant eruptions of Trump-hatred — from tedious tirades delivered in an empty senate chamber to gifting his vitriolic anti-Trump spew to the appreciative alphabet networks. The resulting abysmal polling caused him to rethink a reelection bid, and avoid the embarrassment of a humiliating defeat at the polls.

We’ve long suspected that the disrespected junior senator has had a uncertain grasp on reality…but this latest escapade proves it beyond a doubt. Unconstrained rage has been noted as a symptom of early onset dementia. Jeff might not only be sickening. He may also be sick.


Snorting Koch: An open border hallucination

August 2, 2018

If you do an online search of the Cato Institute, you’ll find it listed as an “American libertarian think tank with a moderate right wing bias” or a “conservative think tank”  — confirming that far-left predisposed Google can be not only wrong, but very wrong.

The Washington, D.C. based organization was originally launched in 1973 as the Charles Koch Foundation by billionaire Charles Koch and two associates. By 1976, the name of the Koch funded entity was changed to the Cato Institute. It supports legalization of illicit drugs claiming doing so would generate $106.7 billion in annual budgetary gains and advocates for the abolishment of ICE.

“Conservative” or “right-wing,” it is not, unless you use John McCain, Jeff Flake and Ted Kennedy as templates.

John Binder, writing for Breitbart News headlines his shocking article, “Koch-Backed CATO Institute: ‘Time for the U.S. to Have Open Borders.’ The report is based on this USA Today op-ed by Cato’s Director of Economic Studies, Jeffrey Miron, who says the U.S. “has nothing to fear, and much to gain, from open borders,” adding that Americans should “forget” about building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to stop the illegal invasion of our country.

Cato’s Miron opines:

“President Donald Trump’s recent tweets against open borders come as no surprise. Indeed, even fervent immigration advocates worry that open borders would lower the wages of low-skilled natives, erode national security, and overburden the social safety net. Trump doubled down, tweeting that he would be “willing to ‘shut down’ government” unless Congress approves funding for a border wall with Mexico.

Trump, however, has it exactly backwards: The solution to America’s immigration problems is open borders, under which the United States imposes no immigration restrictions at all. If the U.S. adopts this policy, the benefits will far outweigh the costs.”

The United States is a sovereign nation, rightfully entitled to a secure border and protection for its citizens. In a post-September 11, 2001 world, the issue of opening our country to potential terrorists is never addressed.

Translating the liberal-speak: The United States needs to become an unrestrained, permanent repository of uneducated and unwilling to assimilate Third-Worlder invaders to benefit Americans. We need to fund them with our generous social programs, provide them with health care, educate their kids to the determent of our own, and eagerly accept their criminality. We should ignore the fact that this act of national destruction will ensure a massive expansion of the Democrat/Socialist party that is certain to have permanent negative impacts on our country — the obvious goal of the Cato Institute and the Koch Brothers.  They are radical George Soros clones in drag.

The left-wing, Hillary-endorsing  Arizona Republic newspaper plays this same deceptive game in today’s edition. In a front page article titled, “Migrant reforms floated in House,” it refers to “bi-partisan” supporters of another massive omnibus spending bill funding ‘dreamers’ and other illegals, backed by the American immigration Council an illegal alien support group opposing what it calls, “senseless deportations.” The newspaper blandly describes it as a “non-profit D.C. advocacy group that studies immigration.” Also identified as backing the measure is the “immigration policy analyst” at the “Libertarian Cato Institute.”

The intentional deception jumps off the page.


McSally’s border wall double talk can’t con Lou Dobbs

August 1, 2018

Martha McSally’s appearance (illuminating video) on Fox Business‘ “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” clearly defines why she’s known as Sally McCain.  Her lack of commitment to constructing the border wall she deceptively alludes to in her campaign ads is reminiscent of her mentor John McCain’s infamous stroll along Arizona’s southern border with then-Pinal County sheriff, deceptively promising toComplete the danged fence” Immediately after the ballots were counted, McCain, Jeff Flake, Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin along with four other RINOs and liberals, joined together on the Gang of Eight, another of his career-long amnesty schemes.

Dobbs takes none of McSally’s glib double talk on the topic, as she repeatedly yammers about a “border wall system.” Dobbs swiftly clarifies that President Trump has promised a border wall — not a system — and pointedly tells McSally to stop speaking over him.

In an email sent to her supporters, Dr. Kelli Ward, who McSally is challenging for Arizona’s open Senate seat writes:

“Yesterday I met with the editorial board of the Arizona Republic with my opponent Martha McSally. Overall it was a very positive experience — I had the chance to spread our message of America First and discuss some of the most important issues of the campaign.

But McSally never ceases to floor me… our meeting confirmed she’s still totally out of touch with conservative voters.In discussing the construction of a much-needed wall along our southern border, McSally emphatically said, “I don’t know why you guys get so caught up on the word ‘wall’.”

No, I am not kidding… the woman is running for U.S. Senate in a border state and she doesn’t comprehend the overwhelming support for President Trump’s Wall. This is why I’m running. I’m in it to win and support the Wall for Arizona and the United States.

You see, my opponent never supported any of the President’s America First immigration proposals — in fact, she’s supported the opposite. When we refer to McSally as Martha “McAmnesty,” we mean it… in addition to opposing the Wall, McSally voted for amnesty multiple times as a sitting member of Congress.

And let’s not forget that the massive $1.3 trillion budget-busting omnibus spending bill that McSally so “proudly” supported back in March didn’t include a single penny for our southern border wall.”

Today’s edition of the newspaper, employing blatant deception and regarding us as easily duped fools, headlines the meeting with the editorial board, “Republicans McSally, Ward trade jabs in heated debate” —- when in fact, there was no debate. And Joe Arpaio, who celebrated his 86th birthday three months ago, didn’t even bother to show up.

Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician, former two-term state senator, military wife, and mother, is the eloquent conservative in this critically important upcoming U.S. Senate Primary Election, which might explain why Martha McSally and Joe Arpaio refuse to participate in actual debates — denying Arizona voters the ability to see, hear, and compare them. Ward’s campaign donation link is alongside this revealing video. Unlike Martha McSally, Kelli Ward relies on supporters, not open border lobbyists who fund McSally’s ubiquitous, though deceitful, TV ads.
