Budweiser Super Bowl ad incites boycott

February 6, 2017

Anti-Pres. Trump overtones fall flat with beer drinkers

There was more going on at Sunday’s Super Bowl than the Patriot’s spectacular victory. Business Insider’s Kate Taylor writes about the threats of boycotts against Budweiser for its immigration themed Super Bowl ad. The 60-second ad Born the Hard Way has created a firestorm of protests with many dedicated Bud drinkers swearing off the brew in response to what they regard as an anti-President Trump, political message.

The commercial depicts Anheuser-Busch co-founder Adolphus Busch’s journey to the U.S. in 1857, portraying prejudice the German immigrant encountered. 

“You’re not wanted here, go back home!” one American in the ad yells at Busch as he arrives in New Orleans.

Budweiser’s vice president of marketing Ricardo Marques said that the ad is relevant in today’s political climate, but said the brand did not intend for the ad to make a political statement. Many people aren’t buying his explanation after the ad aired at the Super Bowl. 

“I drank your product for 30 years and I will no longer drink it you liberal s— heads,” reads one such comment on Budweiser’s Facebook page. 

Last summer as the presidential candidates were gearing up, the brand reinvented itself to staunch sagging sales, replacing the name Budweiser with “America.” It was of no consequence, as only 11% of purchasers said they would buy Budweiser next time they purchased beer.

This push back hits Republicrat John McCain, who withdrew his brief support of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, where it hurts the most — in his heiress wife Cindy Lou Hensley McCain’s bank account. She chairs Hensley & Co. as well as holding majority control in one of the largest Anheuser-Busch beer distributors in the United States. Although they file separate tax returns, he lives quite well on her money. Who can forget this glaring disconnect during his 2008 failed presidential bid?


McCain and Flake deserve Senate phony’s award

February 2, 2017

AZ U.S. Senators hypocritically praise Pres. Trump’s SCOTUS pick, though if they got their way during election, we’d be faced with a permanently leftist skewed high court

Who can forget sanctimonious hypocrite John McCain taking to his high horse and withdrawing his brief support from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump? McCain, who previously referred to Hillary as a rock starhe could support, also declared he and his wife Cindy would not vote for Trump. Vacuous daughter Meghan followed suit.

Jeff Flake, Obama’s basketball teammate and traveling companion, not only refused to get on board with our nominee, but rogue Flake went before any MSM camera placed in front of him to undermine Donald Trump, declaring, “I don’t expect that I will be able to support him (Trump) in November….I just don’t see how I can.”

He didn’t.

Now the duplicitous duo of amnesty supporters is heaping praise on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch.

If it had been up to either of these Hillary cohorts, we’d be looking at liberal nominees in the mode of former ACLU chief counsel, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, admittedly no fan of the U.S. Constitution, appointed by Bill Clinton, as was Stephen Breyer.

Leftists Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, a White House policy adviser to Bill Clinton and later Obama’s Solicitor General — were both Obama appointees.

As McCain and Flake enthuse over Judge Neil Gorsuch, remember what we would have had if either of these Republican pretenders got their way and Donald Trump, who they sabotaged every step of the way, had not been elected President.

The disgraceful Arizona senators deserve the award of shame for their blatant hypocrisy.

Here are a few of the U.S. Supreme Court Justices and the AZ senators votes:

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Roll Call vote. McCain voted aye in tandem with Democrat AZ Sen. Dennis DiConcini on confirming this radical appointee.

Stephen Breyer:  Roll Call vote. Again, McCain and DiConcini both voted aye for the Democrat.

Sonia Sotomayor: Roll Call vote.  In an out of character move, McCain and Kyl both voted nay on confirmation of Democrat although she was the first Hispanic woman appointed to the high court.

Elena Kagan: Roll Call vote McCain and Kyl each voted nay on confirmation. Apparently her partisan political background was too much for them to even split their votes.

David Souter (ret.): Roll Call vote. Once again, McCain voted aye with Democrat AZ Sen. Dennis DiConcini. Souter, a nominal Republican appointed by George H. W. Bush, turned further left as a justice. He retired not long after Obama was elected, calculatingly allowing him to appoint Democrat Sotomayor as his successor.


Pres. Trump’s travel ban protects Americans

January 31, 2017

America hating George Soros revs up mobs

President Donald Trump is not letting any grass grow under his feet as he takes his job seriously and fulfills promises he made as the Republican nominee.  After eight years of an Obama administration, American leftists can’t deal with a leader with integrity, who means what he says and  gets down to the business of protecting the country he loves.

Late Monday Pres. Trump announced the firing of acting attorney general Sally Yates, an Obama holdover, who had defied him on his travel ban, saying she “has betrayed the Department of Justice.” It will be a different story when Sen. Jeff Sessions is confirmed as U.S. Attorney General.

Trump issued an executive order imposing a 90-day restriction on entry to the U.S. by citizens of seven countries where vetting of “refugees“ is impossible. The countries are Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Libya and Yemen.  The MSM refers to them as immigrants. They are not.  The moratorium is referred to as a Muslim ban.  It is not. From the liberal perspective, it would appear that anyone who desires to enter the United States has a right to do so, and we have an obligation to allow them unfettered access to our land, despite being unable to gauge the risk of terrorism they could present.

Barack Obama  who spent most of his presidency golfing, traveling or vacationing,  has now become an activist, saying he “fundamentally disagrees” with  Donald Trump’s “Muslim ban” and is “heartened” by the protests.

 Obama must be suffering from amnesia, since he instituted  similar restrictions himself, in 2016.  As a former ACORN community organizer, the protesters clogging airports and streets would appeal to him.  The fact that large numbers of otherwise non-working people can be mobilized  within short order is thanks to multi-billionaire Socialist George Soros, who advocates for borderless nations — which are not nations at all. 

This no doubt accounts for Soros’ close friendship with the unprincipled John McCain, who has promoted amnesty for illegal aliens since his days of partnering with liberal icon Ted Kennedy. Now he has other cronies, but the issue of throwing open our doors and funding benefits for those who enter the U.S. by stealth has always appealed to him. His latest amnesty cohort, Jeff Flake, refused to endorse GOP nominee Donald Trump, and like McCain, made it clear he would not vote for him.  

Mull that over. Arizona’s two U.S. Senators, who run as Republicans, both voted for Hillary Clinton. 


McCain: “I’ve seen no evidence of illegal voting”

January 30, 2017

McCain opts for not paying attention to facts

Speaking with CNN‘s Anderson Cooper, John McCain unequivocally asserts, “I obviously have seen no evidence of illegal voting. My focus has been on national security, getting Gen. Mattis in as secretary of defense … doing those issues.”

Then the man who is still smarting from his own presidential thrashing by Barack Obama, who withdrew his momentary support from Republican nominee Donald Trump and now pummels him at every opportunity, snidely added that he’s “learned to disregard at least some of the President’s news-making remarks and focus on the business of governing.”

Since McCain — neither the president nor a governor — has made a name for himself insulting sincere citizens who appear before the Senate Armed Services Committee he chairs, and throughout his career has partnered with liberals and Republicrats to relentlessly promotes amnesty for illegal aliens, what business of governing could he possibly be referring to?

The Washington Times reports that Hillary Clinton garnered more than 800,000 votes from non-citizens on Nov. 8, an approximation short of President Trump’s higher estimate of illegal voters, though definitely supportive of his charges of fraud.

Octogenarian McCain, who “obviously” has seen no evidence of voter fraud, must have missed this shocking three-part report documenting evidence of voter fraud on DiscoverTheNetworks.org, A Guide to the Political Left:

PART 1 includes confirmation of voter fraud Oct. 22, 2010 as reported by the Yuma Sun newspaper. Also listed is the Aug. 25, 2014 Phoenix incident of ballot harvesting as reported by A. J. LaFaro, then-Chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee and covered by the Arizona Daily Independent.

Part 2 and Part 3 are also filled with irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in state after state.

The Heritage Foundation provides a sampling of election fraud cases (462) and convictions (742) from across the country — including Arizona.

How are convictions on voter fraud obtained if there is no substantiating evidence to convince the jury, Mr. McCain? They “obviously” require a higher threshold than you do.


Key info preceding AZ GOP Jan. 28th meeting

January 27, 2017

Jim O’Connor is the conservative candidate for AZ GOP chairman

Republican Briefs is a reliable source for the latest news and updates from a conservative prospective. Editor Frost Taylor’s insights and straightforward reporting are a dependable daily read for many GOP grassroots activists.

That’s why we link directly to her Friday post.  If you are an elected  state committeeman attending the Saturday, Jan. 28 Statutory Meeting, you will benefit from having this information before you vote for intra-party officers and Resolutions.

Earlier this week, Seeing Red AZ wroteIt’s time to take back the AZ Republican Party,” along with an update. It contains a powerful video featuring Tim Horn, first Vice Chair of Legislative District 23, Jim O’Connor’s home district —  exposing outgoing chair Robert Graham’s disenfranchisement scheme to rig the election for his chosen successor Jonathan Lines. 

Jonathan Lines is the establishment candidate for Republican state chairman, endorsed by the untrustworthy Robert Graham and linked to the unsavory senate duo of McCain and Flake — who have been instrumental in purging conservatives from precinct committeemen posts.

Jeff Flake determined to fulfill Obama’s amnesty legacy

January 25, 2017

RINO Jeff Flake fails to remember that elephants never forget

Arizona’s U.S. Sens. Jeff Flake and his mentor John McCain are inextricably bonded to amnesty for foreign invaders, forming a bond that continues along the path McCain initially forged with Ted Kennedy and persists with liberals such as Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin and Robert Menendez.

The Daily Caller reported in 2013 that McCain and Flake were in a race for the least popular senator prize. And why not? The bill they were pushing “would award amnesty to at least 11 million illegals, double the influx of Democrat-leaning immigrants to two million per year for the next decade, and double the annual inflow of guest workers above one million in perpetuity. That’s enough new immigrants and guest-workers to equal the 40 million Americans expected to turn 18 during the next decade.”

The bill was wildly popular among liberals hoping to increase their voter base, and business lobbyists supportive of a continued influx of cheap labor, but is toxic among GOP and Independent voters, who believe a sovereign nation has a right to a secure and enforceable border

Yet when Jeff Flake was rated at a bottom dragging 27 percent approval ratinghe smirked and said, “That’s the beauty of a six year term,” implying that voters are too dim-witted to remember his finger in their eye.

He’s already in campaign mode, sending out requests for campaign contributions as he calls us “friend” and refers to himself as a “conservative.” He arrogantly asks us to stand with him, even as he steadfastly refused to stand with our Republican presidential nominee — now President Donald Trump. 

The Gang of Eighters, of which Flake was an integral part, are looking at reviving their amnesty effort even as the past election was a sweeping repudiation of Barack Obama’s policies. Republicans won the presidency, majorities in the U.S. House and Senate and control the state legislatures in 32 states.  Republican governors now lead in 31 states. Our message resonated. It was not Flake’s message. Jeff Flake was a regular basketball playing buddy of Obama’s and a dependable traveling companion, accompanying Obama to Kenya and the Communist nation of Cuba.

Now Jeff Flake is trying to lasso in the Hispanic constituency to keep himself politically viable, while attempting to appeal to those who want illegal criminals off our streets. There are at least a couple of things that go unstated, with his supposed SAFE Act.  One, expediting the deportation of criminal aliens convicted of serious and violent crimes is no solution. As we have witnessed repeatedly, deportation is no hindrance. They return to commit more violence. Criminal illegals need to be tried and incarcerated here, where their ability to kill and maim innocents is ended.

Flake is pushing the toothless Obama scheme of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and oddly attempting to tie it to the deportation of criminal aliens, while soft soaping the claims of being brought to the U.S. as a child and not convicted of a crime — enabling them to request deferred action of removal proceedings for a period of two years, subject to renewal.

These impossible to verify foreign nationals, farcically renamed  “dreamers” —  many now adults with families of their own — all claim they were brought here before the age of 16 in violation of the law by their illegal parents. Recipients of this largess must have been under 31 years of age as of June 15, 2012; They also profess they will join the military or enroll in college, where they bizarrely qualify for in-state tuition. They will be competing with American citizen kids for college placement and jobs. There are no provisions for verification of these claims or enforcement of failures to comply

Aren’t the lives of Mesa resident Grant Ronnebeck, 22,  Kate Steinle, 32, and countless others killed by repeatedly deported illegals, more important than political correctness and Flaky deceit?


It’s time to take back the AZ Republican Party & UPDATE

January 24, 2017

Update-tag

Jan. 26, 2017

At the eleventh hour and without throwing his support to Jim O’Connor who he campaigned alongside, Frank Thorwald has withdrawn from the three-man race for Arizona Republican Party chairman.

Thorwald was widely considered a spoiler helping McCain supporter Jonathan Lines defeat the true conservative, Jim O’Connor. Actions speak louder than words.

 

Don’t be deceived: Vote conservative Jim O’Connor for AZ GOP chairman

Politics is an intriguing business. It has the ability to lure or repel. Whether as elected officials or  grassroots activists, it holds many of us captive  — some for decades.

Those who began as newly recruited precinct committeemen continued to run for the office and some as state committeemen. The reward for serving in the unpaid posts and donating countless hours /years of labor intensive work is helping to elect those who shared their core beliefs to public office.

As bizarre as it appears, Arizona’s U.S. Senators have often ignited turf wars at the precinct (neighborhood) level aimed at ousting hardworking conservatives from their posts. Unprincipled John McCain and his surrogates have honed this traitorous activity to a razor sharp edge, even colluding with a San Francisco based Obama donor.  For his continual conspiring with Democrats against his own party, John McCain was censured by Republican State Committeemen in 2014.

Jon Kyl engaged in these underhanded tactics in 2012. Jeff Flake undermined Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, by refusing to endorse him and arrogantly showing up wherever a camera and mic might be to catch his betrayal.

Worthy of note are the shenanigans nearly out-the-door McCain and Flake colluding State Chairman Robert Graham has engaged in. Graham oversaw the Jan. 2015 meeting that stretched the sensibilities of state committeemen to the limits as he slipped the two senators in the rear stage door using a ruse to have them vacate the auditorium before the ballots were tabulated.  The duplicitous duo, who never attended state meetings,  were greeted with boos, turned backs and walk outs.

This coming Saturday Jan. 28, State Committeemen elected in their own legislative districts across Arizona, will assemble for the AZ GOP Statutory Meeting at the Church of the Nations, 6225 N. Central Ave. in Phoenix. Election of party officers will be front and center. Candidates for AZ GOP State Chairman are conservative Jim O’Connor, also-ran Frank Thorwald, and Jonathan Lines, the McCain /Flake ally being pushed by Robert Graham. Don’t be deceived.  The one to vote for is Jim O’Connor.

The Jan. 23 Republican Briefs provides even more background as well as Lines’ denials. It’s the top story. There’s more from Arizona Freedom Alliance, titled, “AZGOP Candidate Jonathan Lines from Those Who Know Him Best.”

In this video Tim Horn first Vice Chair of Legislative District 23, Jim O’Connor’s home district, exposes Robert Graham’s disenfranchisement scheme to rig the election for his chosen successor Jonathan Lines. This information is crucial. If you’re a state committeeman, you can’t be better informed in four short minutes. The video is well done and  the facts are clearly presented
