Bias mars AZ U.S. Senate McSally, Sinema debate

October 16, 2018

Debate “moderator” Ted Simons was clearly unable to be impartial as he gave unjustified leeway to Kyrsten Sinema, while restricting Martha McSally

Arizona’s sole U.S. Senate debate was broadcast Monday evening, Oct. 15, co-hosted by the less than objective Arizona PBS/KAET Channel 8 and the Arizona Republic newspaper. 

U.S. Representatives — Republican Martha McSally (CD-2) and Democrat Kyrsten Sinema (CD-9) — are running for Arizona’s U.S. Senate seat vacated by anti-Trumper Jeff Flake, who chose not to wage a reelection campaign based on 18 percent approval ratings. 

The newspaper’s political reporter Maria Polletta and Ted Simons, host of Channel 8’s “Arizona Horizon,” supposedly moderated the debate, though Simon’s partiality toward Sinema was clearly apparent. 

Using her soft, cultivated campaign voice, chameleon Sinema refused to respond to questions deserving of answers, saying, “Martha is trying to make this about me, making ridiculous attacks and what we know is that this campaign is about every day Arizonans and I’ll fight for them.”

When McSally, who identified herself as “pro-life,” pushed for a response Sinema finally admitted she would have voted against the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

But when Martha McSally, (read her full bio) the first female pilot to fly a fighter jet in a war zone and command a fighter squadron in combat, retiring in 2010 as a full Colonel, noted that CNN reported last week that in 2003 Sinema said it was okay for Americans to join the Taliban to fight our military, demanded an apology, Ted Simons rushed to Sinema’s defense — quickly shutting down McSally and ending the contrivance posing as a debate. This can be viewed in the concluding minutes of “the debate.”*

Conservative SRAZ doesn’t claim to be impartial. Because we support Republican U.S. Rep. Martha McSally in this crucial senate race that is being watched nationwide for its impact on the continuation of President Trump‘s winning agenda, we invite our readers to get the rest of the story, by watching for the straight scoop about Sinema.

Arrogant Jeff Flake exposes himself as irrational buffoon

October 13, 2018

During this interview with C-SPAN’s Steve Scully, Jeff the Flake, who was forced to abandon his plans for a second senate term due to appalling 18-percent approval ratings in his home state, arrogantly mulls the idea of running for president. He discusses the possibility of mounting a challenge to Donald Trump, among the most successful U.S. Presidents in modern times. For those with an especially strong stomach, the full interview airs this evening…Saturday, October 13, at 7:00 pm AZ time on C-SPAN.

Republicrat Flake pompously lectures Republicans, telling us we need to remember what decency is and what it means to be conservative — as if the marginal Flake could comprehend concepts of such magnitude.

When Americans, who have waited in lines for hours to attend his rallies, cheer President Trump, Flake, who was frequently unable to draw a crowd, defines that as “unseemly.”

The fact is Pres. Trump is fulfilling his promises — to the delight of the majority of American citizens benefiting from the Trump tax cuts, increased purchasing power and historically low unemployment, reflected strongly among blacks and Hispanics. His unprecedented meetings with North Korean and Chinese leaders and discussions on nuclear disarmament have opened the door to making the world a safer place. Despite contentious battles waged by the left, he has added two originalist justices on the U.S. Supreme Court during his first two years. Those who dislike Trump obviously don’t like winning.

Latest lunacy from the left invades news, ASU

October 7, 2018

We read the AZ Republic so you don’t have to

The Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper appears to be on a quest to outdo its own excesses.

First, a bit of levity which is deserving of being called, “a good for a laugh” headline:

“As Sen. Jeff Flake stokes White House speculation, his political brand seems in tatters.”

No kidding? Flake is not running for reelection to his single term senate post due to 18% approval ratings, no doubt exacerbated by his relentless brutalization of President Donald Trump. As Trump’s numbers continue to soar, Flake’s have tanked. If he can’t generate support in his home state, it’s unlikely he’d fare better elsewhere, though he’s irrationally been to the primary battleground state of New Hampshire twice recently.

On Saturday, as the Supreme Court confirmation vote was taken, one of the radical hooligans in the senate gallery yelled out, calling Jeff Flake, “a coward.” These are the same people he has actively courted, and are now turning on him. No wonder his eyebrows are down-turned and his perpetual smirk has been replaced by the pained look of a man with inflamed hemorrhoids.

Moving right along, we’ll give you a front page headline under a photo of a person resembling the newspaper’s editorial page editor, Phil Boas, though sporting long hair. You’ll remember him as the man responsible for overseeing the in-tandem opinion pieces — some masquerading as reports — persistently hammering and working double-time to remove Sheriff Joe Arpaio from the elected office he held for an unprecedented six four-year terms. Arpaio is Boas’ father-in-law.

But, no. The photo is not Boas, but a person named Natalie Diaz. Below the photo is this headline: “ASU poet gets MacArthur ‘genius’ grant, worth $625 K.”

Turns out the “genius” is “one of only 25 people nationwide to receive such a bounty. And what sets this poet who works in the ASU English Department apart from the academic herd?  According to the report, “Her poetry draws on her experiences as a Mojave American and Latina to challenge the mythological and cultural touchstones underlying American Society.” There’s even more that makes Diaz so deserving of the prize money.

In addition to Latina, Diaz self identifies as ‘queer and indigenous” expressing hope “to offer visibility to queer people and show how they have been hurt and erased. Also how they deserve and express love.”

If you thought the English Department was a safe space for your college students, think again. There is probably an assignment on “Toxic Masculinity,“ which is actually being considered as a course for integration into Minnesota kindergartens.

 The Chicago-based John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation is a “philanthropic” organization with assets of approximately $7 billion that supports the promotion of leftist causes such as “over incarceration, global warming and nuclear risk,” as it “continues its historic commitments to the role of journalism in a responsible and responsive democracy.”

Get it?

Former Gov. Fife Symington dangles a senate possibility

October 6, 2018

Former Arizona Gov. Fife Symington, a Republican, is considering a possible run for the U. S. Senate seat previously occupied by John McCain. Currently former Sen. Jon Kyl, appointed by Gov. Doug Ducey, Sept. 4, is acting as a placeholder. There will be a special election in 2020 to permanently fill the seat.

One thing is certain. Arizona Republicans have had their fill of untrustworthy senators running as Republicans while comporting themselves as Democrats. McCain and nearly-out-the-door Jeff Flake each used the GOP party apparatus to get elected and then all semblance of the Republicans they claimed to be vanished after Election Day.  It was a charade engaged in by both men, that left Republicans unrepresented.

Symington reportedly began considering the possibility when former Attorney General Grant Woods, a Republicrat who specializes in endorsing Democrats — announced he was thinking about running for McCain’s seat — as a Democrat. The party switch would be the first honest political move Woods has made in years.

Symington, who received a Bronze Star for his Air Force service during the Vietnam War, resigned in 1997 during his second term as governor, following a conviction on charges of extortion and bank fraud — a conviction which was overturned by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, not known for its conservative bent. Pres. Bill Clinton, whose life Symington saved in a near-drowning incident in college, later pardoned him. A popular governor, easily elected to a second term, Symington was a tax-cutting businessman who entered politics in the manner engaged in by Donald Trump in 2016.

Currently, Woods, McCain’s first Chief of Staff, appears in this campaign ad boosting the U.S. Senate candidacy of radical leftist Kyrsten Sinema, angling to succeed his onetime boss.

Among the Democrats Grant Woods has previously supported are Janet Napolitano — his name was prominently displayed on the notorious ‘Republicans for Janet’ list during her 2006 gubernatorial race. Woods also endorsed Democrats Terry Goddard and Felecia Rotellini for AZ Attorney General in two separate races. Leftist Harry Mitchell was Wood’s pick for Congress. He endorsed Dem Fred DuVal for governor. In 2016, Woods endorsed Hillary Clinton for President.

A longtime political manipulator and contemptible braggart, lawyer Woods has learned he can generate attention by remaining a registered Republican while supporting Democrats. The washed-up McCain sycophant has nothing else to offer.

Untrustworthy Flake hit with damning Biblical analogy

October 4, 2018

…sans 30 pieces of silver

Jeff Flake, Arizona’s “on the skids” senator, has reached the final stage of his political career. Responding in the only way possible to an unprecedented, abysmal 18 percent approval rating in his home state following his first senate term, he took the path of least resistance and didn’t run for reelection. 

Unfortunately, pretentious Flake has neither the refinement nor wisdom to leave quietly. Those character traits are not ingrained in the persona of a man who camped alone on a deserted island in 2011 as an excuse to send out shirtless beefcake photos of himself. The now fawning, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic was not always such a Flake fan. It referred to him asa coward,“ anda mere politician, no longer a statesman,” when he disappointed them by reversing his stance on amnesty for illegal aliens during a U.S. House campaign. The newspaper needn’t have worried. It was just election based rhetoric that he tossed aside after the votes were counted.

Fast forward to 2018. Now possessed by a virulent anti-Trump mania, Flake is using his remaining time in D.C. fanning the flames set by his Democrat cohorts who are doing everything in their power to derail the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.  When there was nothing of substance to use against the respected federal appellate judge, Christine Blasey Ford, a-less-than-truthful witness sprang forth with allegations dating back nearly 40 years to their high school days. Though she has been caught lying (i.e., her fear of flying was found to be bogus), her memory is fuzzy and no one has corroborated her new-found memories, she has Jeff Flake joining the Democrats, to keep picking at this festering boil.

Make no mistake. What we are witnessing is raw political warfare intended to deny Pres. Trump another appointment to the Supreme Court. In 2016, Flake and McCain both stated they would not vote for GOP nominee Donald Trump.

One of the best assessments of the debacle, is titled,GOP‘s Judas,” by Clarence V. McKee for Newsmax. He nails Flake — as a modern-day Judas Iscariot — who didn’t even get his “thirty pieces of silver” for selling out the GOP Judiciary Committee and Senate colleagues.

This morning, the Senate began reviewing the FBI’s completed report on the allegations.

Kavanaugh spectacle: High stakes trickle-down reality for Dems

October 3, 2018

North Dakota Democrat Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is reaping the harvest of her statement at a recent campaign event when she disingenuously lectured that President Trump should pick another nominee other than Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court.

Democrats don’t want another nominee. They continue to lament that Hillary Clinton isn’t able to appoint a Democrat, and want to deny Pres. Donald Trump future confirmations of his conservative choices. The harsh reality is, Democrats have declared war on America. Those who dare question the Left’s radical agenda find themselves in the crosshairs.

According to a newly released poll, Heitkamp now trails GOP challenger U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer by 10 points. Congressman Cramer, North Dakota’s only member of the House of Representatives, has deep roots within the Republican Party as the former state GOP chairman.

Fifty-one percent of likely voters polled said they are backing Rep. Cramer while 41 percent said they support Heitkamp. Eight percent are undecided.

Heitkamp is struggling to keep her seat in a state that went to President Trump by nearly 63 percent of the vote in 2016. Hillary garnered just 27 percent.

Sixty percent of North Dakota voters surveyed say they support federal appellate Judge Brett Kavanaugh, suddenly facing politically motivated allegations of teenage misconduct despite being vetted six previous times for high level White House and judicial positions.

The poll emerges as Heitkamp and other red-state Democrats attempt to navigate the rocky path between party allegiance and integrity.

Unprincipled Jeff Flake, (highly recommended Washington Times report) who opted out of running for a second senate term due to a bottom-dragging 18 percent approval rating has denied Arizona voters the pleasure of sending him packing by withholding their votes from the Trump-hating Republicrat.  

U.S. Rep. Martha McSally, (AZ CD-2) the first woman in U.S. history to fly a fighter jet in combat and command a fighter squadron, is the credentialed Republican running to replace him in the senate.

Trump easily carried Arizona, winning all 11 electoral votes in 2016 and remains immensely popular. Flake’s dismal statewide approval rating should write the closing chapter on his political saga. Instead the clueless Flake is traveling to New Hampshire to test the presidential waters.

 It’s a good bet the Flake can’t swim.

Leftie Flake plays hardball with Pres. Trump

October 1, 2018

…though he played as a regular on Obama’s weekly basketball team

There’s been too much written about Jeff Flake in recent days.  If your tastes run to the most grotesque in the political realm, he’s a compelling character, to be sure.

Although we abhor giving him more of the publicity he so obviously craves we’ve engaged in as much Flaking as other confounded conservatives.

As Arizonans, we knew what we got when he first ran for the U.S. House in 2000. Never considered an intellect, he had no issues, and was advised to take on “earmarks.” This became his rallying cry. Presenting himself as a fiscal conservative, he held a safe seat in the LDS heavy East Valley. Seemingly affable, he was taken at his word when he pledged not to run for more than three two-year terms. But the headiness of DC was irresistible and he reneged on his promise with a smirk and the words, “I lied.”

Flake was shoehorned into Jon Kyl’s senate seat when he resigned. Both Kyl and McCain went to bat for their compliant crony, cutting numerous commercials in his behalf. He won by a mere 3 points.

Under the tutelage of McCain, Flake learned to buck his own party. His affliction worsened when Donald Trump was victorious over 16 other GOP candidates, taking the party’s nomination.  Both senators declared neither they nor their families would support him. Trump won without them. Though President Trump has presided over the highest employment in decades, a thriving economy and engaged in historic denuclearization summits with North Korean and Chinese leaders, Flake’s hatred of Trump trumps all.

 He’s done all he can to undercut the president, even denouncing him from the senate chamber. And though Flake is not running for reelection due to embarrassing 18% approval ratings, he delusionally toys with the idea of running for president.

Gateway Pundit reveals more of the cringe-worthy shenanigans Flake has engaged in as he joins with Democrats and other anti-Trump thugs in an attempt ro derail Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. (Check out the photo showing the obsequious Flake.) Today is the first day the high court convenes for this term. Thanks to Flake, it will be short one member.

Now Flake is appearing in a nauseating traveling show with his buddy Delaware Democrat Chris Coons, attempting to explain why they are playing along with the far left to skewer Judge Brett Kavanuagh, Here they are on liberal CBS‘ “60 Minutes.”

Mediaite reports the ditzy duo also made an appearance at the Global Citizens Festival. It wasn’t that long ago Jeff Flake declared himself a “globalist,” saying, “I’ll take the globalist moniker, thank you very much.”

While promoting his anti-Trump booklet to the media elites, Flake blasted pro-Trump Republicans for being “xenophobic” and “nativist.” On CNN, he criticized Republicans for embracing the “unfamiliar banner” of “populism” and combating illegal immigration. He also derided what he claimed to be “xenophobia” of Trump’s voters.

Notice the words Flake used are identical to those used by former Arizona Congressman John Shadegg in this 2008 interview in the New York Times. He never smeared his constituents with those derogatory names in the local press. Shadegg no doubt regarded us as too ignorant to read tony, leftwing Eastern newspapers.  And why wouldn’t he?  He kept getting reelected.

Like Flake, Shadegg was also a McCain and Kyl open borders clone.
