Sinema drops CD9 seat, opts for senate challenge to Flake

September 29, 2017

Cloaked radical liberal challenges RINO

And so it begins.  To no one’s surprise, Democrat U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema has announced she’s jumping her Congressional District 9 perch and “putting country ahead of politics” as she runs for the U.S. Senate. Her You Tube announcement shows a soft spoken, genteel woman who recounts her early years as part of a homeless family, telling how attaining the American Dream is actually the story of her life.

Sinema deserves credit for a masterful job of recreating her image. When she took office in 2013, as the self announced “first openly bisexual” member of Congress, she refused to take her oath of office on the bible as is customarily done, since she considers herself an atheist . Her terms in the Arizona House and Senate came after she abandoned running as a Green Party Candidate. Sinema was endorsed by the pro-abortion EMILY’s List, supports gun control measures, advocates on behalf of citizenship for illegals, and regards “raising taxes as more economically sound than cutting vital services.” Her Mideast allegiances lie with the Palestinians rather than Israel, the only democracy in the entire region. Sinema was a frequent guest at the Obama White House. Virulently anti-military, in campaign-mode she evidenced a newfound, though exploitive compassion, with this ad, featuring the parents of a young veteran who took his own life after being denied treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

In Sept. 2012, during her first congressional race, SRAZ postedKyrsten Sinema: Far-left radical AZ CD 9 Dem exposed,” topping it with a cozy photo of Sinema with her then-best gal pal Janet Napolitano. It contains a wealth of information including her ties to the Communist Party. Sinema’s chameleon-like change of appearance and tone should be enough to raise the antenna of those paying attention to high alert levels. Be sure to read Guy Benson’s Townhall column.

With Democrat Sinema now angling to oust unpopular senator Jeff Flake and the Congressional District 9 seat opening, there will be a free-for-all race of wannabees. Former McCain aide Paul Hickman  is reportedly eyeing the seat. Radio talk show co-host Seth Leibsohn, a former Bill Bennett colleague and president of the Leibsohn Group has been playing coy, as he leads up to an end of Sept. announcement. A frequent guest on the ‘Seth and Chris’ launching pad show is political consultant Sean Noble, onetime chief-of-staff to former U.S. Rep. John Shadegg — a longtime McCain ally.

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, another liberal Democrat, is eyeing the CD 9 House seat, along with some lesser known aspirants.

As an ever-growing horde dukes it out for the House seat, keep your eye on the Arizona Republican Senate Primary, where vulnerable Jeff Flake is being challenged by Dr. Kelli Ward, a conservative former two-term state senator and physician, who will be a valuable asset as the U.S. Senate  revisits repealing Obamacare.

Mulish McCain attempts to scuttle tax reform

September 28, 2017

Ailing John McCain hasn’t the grace to leave the senate and spend precious time with family  and friends, as his Mayo doctors suggested following the release of his diagnosis of an aggressive brain cancer and follow-up treatment of chemotherapy and radiation. Instead he’s making demands and signaling his intent to torpedo President Trump’s tax reform efforts.

Why? Because tax reform, like repealing and replacing Obamacare, was a key Trump issue that resonated with voters nationwide.  McCain is a jealous and vindictive man who despises President Trump and like his underling Jeff Flake, stated he would not vote for the 2016 Republican nominee, opting to support Hillary Clinton.

McCain wants to call the shots on tax reform exactly as he did on repealing Obamacare. The 81-year old, self identified ‘Maverick” revels in his role as obstructionist-in-chief. Whatever he can do to throw a wrench in President Trump’s agenda makes McCain’s day. Republicans control both the U.S. House and Senate, but the margin is slim and a defector such as McCain can single-handedly doom long-awaited GOP reforms.

Now trying to sound high-minded, but failing miserably, the unhinged egotist is calling for “bipartisanship” on the tax reform deliberations. Bipartisanship has a single meaning in Washington, D.C. It signifies Republicans caving to Democrat demands.  It’s impossible to recall one issue on which meaningful concessions were made by Democrats. That’s not how they function. 

After decades in Washington, the left-of-center McCain knows these facts, but chooses to ignore them.

Republican leaders plan to use the same fast-track procedure on taxes as they attempted to implement on health care reform. The plan requires 50 Senate votes while bypassing a potential Democrat filibuster. Because the GOP controls only 52 votes in the Senate, every vote is essential for passage.

Expecting Democrat support for a tax overhaul is an exercise in futility. Democrats are not known for favoring tax cuts, since their liberal policies require ever more funding.

Earlier this week, President Trump hosted Republican and Democrat members of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee at the White House. He expressed optimism about the simplified tax plan, and promised to “cut taxes tremendously for the middle class.”

The president would be wise to schedule the vote when showboating, elitist McCain is in Scottsdale undergoing treatment at Mayo Clinic. Married to an heiress, he’s able to access health care outside the reach of the average American. When he campaigned for president, he was unable to give a definitive answer to how many homes he owned.

This is presidential candidate McCain caught in his own deceitful web about his knowledge of economics —- essential for reforming the cumbersome and oppressive tax system.

 


All time first: AZ Republic runs an aditorial praising McCain

September 24, 2017

No, that is not a misspelling.  It’s our description of what we found looking for Sunday’s editorial in the Arizona Republic.

There it was, a full page topped by the all capitalized words in bold type:

P R I N C I P L E D

L E A D E R S H I P

The princely accolade is following by a  seven-and-a -half-inch square photo of pre-brain surgery scarred John McCain.  Directly below that is a paragraph from “Arizona’s health care  and business leaders” heaping praise on  Arizona’s senior senator (ASS)  for his  desire to work with the Democrats on health care reform in what these “leaders” call a bipartisan manner in “adopting lasting and meaningful health care reform.”

You know, exactly as Barack Obama and the Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did when they shoved Obamacare down America’s throat. In the intervening years since the massive government overtaking of healthcare was passed, Arizonans have seen a dramatic 116 percent rise in premiums — which the “leaders” have either overlooked or actually don’t care about.

Following the praiseful paragraph is a Sept. 22, 2017 quote from McCain which the “leaders” say they couldn’t agree with more. It was taken from his speech following his second vote against President Donald Trump’s efforts to follow through on his campaign promise to “repeal and replace” Obamacare.

McCain, who was embarrassingly trounced 52.1 to 44.5 when he ran for the presidency in 2008, is still smarting over President Trump’s overwhelming victory over Hillary Clinton. Both McCain and Jeff Flake voted for the scandal plagued liberal Democrat, saying they could not support Donald Trump — though he emerged victorious from a Republican primary field of 17 contestants.

The besotted signers on the aditorial must have short memories. Just last year, running for another 6-year senate term at age 80, McCain campaigned on repealing and replacing Obamacare. Were they happy with him then or did they vote for Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick who supported Obamacare?


Republic reporter does double duty as Flake flack

September 19, 2017

Sinking in the polls, Jeff Flake is in real trouble

Dan Nowicki knows his days of slavishly covering John McCain are coming to an end. Now 81 and suffering from an aggressive form of brain cancer, McCain spends his waning days bonded to a very un-statesman-like role of Trump-basher-in-chief. Never having recovered from an embarrassing  drubbing during his 2008 presidential bid, he’s unable to reconcile the fact that a Washington outsider was victorious when he, the ultimate insider with 35 years in DC, was not. Using Barack Obama’s tactics of bashing America while in foreign countries, McCain shamefully attacked President Trump while attending an economic summit in Italy recently.

Junior Senator Jeff Flake has alienated the very Republicans he needs as he runs for his first senate reelection, with polling numbers in the toilet. He’s written a 140-page pamphlet masquerading as a book titled, “Conscience of a Conservative,” blatantly plagiarized from Barry Goldwater’s 1960 book. It was written two years before Flake was born, so the marginal Flake probably thinks no one will be the wiser. The sole purpose of Flake’s effort is to hammer President Donald Trump. Flake, who has never been accused of being an intellect, is too dense to comprehend that he is also painting the Republicans he needs to support him as fools, since they overwhelmingly put Trump over the top. Flake wouldn’t know about the massive turnouts for Trump’s valley appearances, since he refused to attend.

Major sources have taken note of Flake’s disastrously low  polling numbers. Townhall pulled no punches with,Uh Oh: Poll Has Sen. Jeff Flake Trailing GOP Primary Challenger By 14 Points.” The Hill wrote,” Poll: Flake’s approval rating in Arizona at 18 points.” Breitbart News headlined, “Exclusive — Jeff Flake Underwater: Poll Shows Kelli Ward Opening Up More-Than-25-Point-Lead In Senate Race With Year to Go.

But reporter Nowicki soldiers on singing the anthem from Jeff Flake‘s desperate playbook, ignoring the obvious as he attempts to position President Trump as imitating Flake‘s positions. It doesn’t work, Dan. The president recently described Flake as “Weak on crime & border!“ Even the newspaper you work for was so stunned by his previous campaign-related amnesty turnaround, that it blasted him as “a mere politician — no longer a statesman.”

Flake is exceedingly vulnerable. He was not swept into the senate by a groundswell in 2012 despite assists from John McCain and retiring Jon Kyl. He won his initial senate race by a mere 3 percentage points. That was before his loud refusals to either endorse or vote for the Republican presidential nominee, and his anti-Trump publication.

In a blunderous description reminiscent of failed presidential candidate Jeb Bush, who said illegals aliens come to America as an “act of love” — Jeff Flake now calls these same foreign invaders who disregard our sovereign border, “Americans by choice.” Jeb favored a “pathway to citizenship” to allow those here in violation of the law to “come out of the shadows.” At the time, Jeff Flake praised the absurd contention that breaking our laws was “an act of love.”

Dan Nowicki might think that’s practical political posturing. Most of the rest of us think it’s traitorous and unworthy of a candidate running to represent the people of Arizona in the 100 member senate.

 Dr. Kelli Ward is the actual conservative in Arizona’s U.S. Senate race.  Acquaint yourself with her principled positions on the issues. Send her a donation. Unlike Jeff Flake, she is not beholden to DC amnesty lobbyists. Arizona deserves better than Jeff Flake.


Jared Kushner needs a new day job

September 10, 2017

Senior Lightening Rod isn’t working out

Breitbart News reports on the disturbing back door alliance between President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and liberal Democrat Sen. Dick Durbin, a longtime amnesty advocate. 

A senior adviser to the president, Kushner heads the newly created Office of American Innovation, He has been acting as a conduit, aiding Durbin in lobbying the White House to support the illegal DACA / D.R.E.A.M.E.R.s.  Kushner also arranged phone calls between Durbin and then-Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, who now serves as Trump’s chief of staff.

And whadda’ya know?  John McCain’s best bud and traveling companion Lindsey Grahamnesty was in on the scheme. In the report, he’s fittingly described as “liberal Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham.”

Breietbart’s Neil Munro couldn’t be more correct as he writes:

“That amnesty-for-border-security deal is a long way short of Trump’s campaign promise of an effective border wall and is also very far short of his advocacy for the popular Raise Act merit immigration reform. The Raise Act would reform the nation’s immigration laws to help raise wages and opportunities for the 320 million Americans who dream of better lives for themselves and their children.”

Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) John McCain and his fellow Republicrat Jeff Flake were the architects of the failed Gang of 8, another amnesty maneuver put together in Jan. 2013 immediately after Flake barely squeaked into the senate by a mere 3 points. The treacherous twosome teamed up with Sens. Lindsey Graham (SC), Marco Rubio (Fl) and four Democrat Sens. including Dick Durbin (Illinois), Robert Menendez (NJ), Chuck Schumer (NY), and Michael Bennet (Colo) — all integral to the nefarious cabal of amnesty plotters.

Menendez currently on trial, indicted on 14 counts of corruption, is being defended by a lawyer who actually claims the charges “could be an attack on Hispanics.”

….and so it goes.

 


Supporting DACA is ultimately suicidal

September 2, 2017

Who died and made Paul Ryan supreme leader?

First let’s get the terminology straight. The words immigrant, migrant and undocumented are not interchangeable. Actual immigrants enter the United State legally, apply for citizenship, embrace our culture, language and history and become naturalized Americans. That does not mean they forget their ethnic roots, but things do change. Americans are not hyphenated — as President Theodore Roosevelt noted when he addressed the Knights of Columbus on Oct. 12, 1915. This New York Times article headlined Roosevelt bars the hyphenated,” was published the following day.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a program thrust upon us as an executive action by Barack Obama.  Since its inception in 2012, DACA has granted more than 800,000 recipients, including more than 120,000 Texans, a renewable, two-year work permit and a reprieve from deportation proceedings.

A toothless “remedy,” it purportedly applies to illegals brought to the United States by their illegally invading parents before they were 16 years old. In order to qualify for this absurd generosity, they must have been age 35 or younger as of June 2012. There is no way to verify their claims, which makes enforcement of the program a complete farce.

But according to House Speaker Paul Ryan rewarding the illegal alien children of lawbreaking parents who often paid transporting ’coyotes’  $ thousands to usher them into the U.S. is just good public policy.

Responding to a question about DACA, on his hometown radio station WCLO in Janesville, Wisconsin on Friday, Ryan said Congress was working on a legislative fix to preserve the program.

“I actually don’t think he should do that,” Ryan said of Trump’s consideration of terminating the program. “I believe that this is something that Congress has to fix.” Ryan neglects the fact that Trump’s successful campaign hinged on the promise of adherence to the law, building a fence and deportations of illegals.

Having a Republican President and majorities in both the U.S. House and Senate is worthless when amnesty supporters Sens. John McCain, Jeff Flake and House Speaker Paul Ryan promote programs such as DACA, that will ultimately increase the Democrat base and relegate the Republican Party to Whig-like obscurity.

The so-called “dreamers” represent a dual assault on law-abiding, taxpaying American citizens and legal immigrants, since public universities grant illegals in-state tuition. American parents who send their children to out-of-state colleges have to pay higher tuition than illegals. Most importantly, this scam results in illegals taking the limited number of spaces available for students at public universities, crowding out deserving American students and eventually competing against them in the job market.

The Trump administration has reportedly been in discussions concerning what to do about DACA, responding to the deadline on an ultimatum issued by 10 state attorneys general, led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. They warn that DACA needs to sunset by Sept. 5 or the states will attempt to end it in court. Read the letter they sent to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

RINO Ryan has long been sympathetic toward the so-called “dreamers.” You know them, though their acronym has morphed from D.R.E.A.M. (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors), to simply “dreamers.” Shouldn’t American citizen kids have the right to have their dreams fulfilled?

And hypocrite Paul Ryan? He also opposes a border fence, though he has had an impenetrable one built around his own mansion.


Farcical Flake fishes for puny funds as lobbyists keep him flush

August 31, 2017

Vast amount of his support comes from lobbyists, not the home folks

Have you received Jeff Flake’s latest solicitation email? His campaign is approaching what he calls his “end of the month fundraising goal,” and he says he wants to “check in” and “reach out.” He even calls us “friend” in a John McCain-like manner. Though he lives in a gated community far from the riff and raff, Flake even veers into corn-pone land with the salutation of “Hey,” as in “Hey Friend.”

Then comes the closer. You know…the car salesman time squeeze, telling you this extraordinary deal has a deadline. Flake gives us just 48 hours to hop aboard his ready-to-implode train. He tells us he only needs 18 supporters to help him reach his goal and advises recipients they don’t want to miss the opportunity to help him reach it. The best part of his financial fakery/campaign con is the tricky plea, “Every little bit makes a difference.” Then he asks for us to “chip in” with  $5 $10 or $25.

If 18 folks were to give Jeff the Jester $5, that would give him the princely sum of $90 bucks, surely enough to clear any hurdles. Especially as his latest FEC filings dated  01/01/2017 to 06/30/2017 show him a year out from the election having spent nearly half a million on operating expenses, mainly lodging, food and cabs.

But not to worry. His coffers are filled with $4,374,137.00 — over four and three-quarters of a million dollars. Additionally, Jeff Flake for U.S. Senate, Inc., (yes, it is a business) shows $527,428.00  in “transfers from other authorized committees,” (read: “lobbyists’) —  including  $262,015.20 from Cindy Hensley McCain’s Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc Political Action Committee.

Flake is doing just fine without receiving $5, $10 or $15 from those who are just scraping by. Does he  really need 18 donors to give him five bucks in the next 48 hours— a whopping $90? The vast majority of his donors fork over $2,700 a pop.

Lobbyists support Jeff Flake because he was one of them. Flake has no core. Prior to his political career, Flake worked as a lobbyist and registered foreign agent for Rossing Uranium — one of the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel — which operates a mine in the African country of Namibia where Flake did his LDS mission. Flake earned a substantial salary opening doors in D.C. and promoting the firm with deep financial ties to terror-sponsoring Iran.

In 2012 exhibiting pretzel-like repositioning on IranFlake was running to replace the retiring Jon Kyl. The League of Conservation Voters Victory Fund and Majority PAC launched an $800,000 television ad campaign outlining the risks of sending former uranium mining lobbyist Jeff Flake to the Senate.

Dr. Kelli Ward is the principled conservative in the 2018 AZ U.S. Senate race. Unlike Jeff Flake who refused to vote for Donald Trump, she stands with President Trump. She deserves our support.
