Cindy Hensley McCain’s misplaced sympathy

July 28, 2019

Dead APS customers have “impacted Don personally”

Cindy Hensley McCain has been moved to come to the defense of the Chairman of the Board and CEO of Arizona Public Service — a subsidiary of Pinnacle West Capital Corp. — claiming authorship of a foolishly insulting ‘My Turn’ editorial in the failing Arizona Republic newspaper, her husband’s personal public relations vehicle.

What would cause her (or more likely a surrogate) to write, “Maligned Don Brandt of APS is a good and decent man”? She refers to him as “a community leader called to serve a greater good,” and, of course, drawing a parallel to her late husband, gifted deity status by the same newspaper. Brandt eulogized McCain during at least one of his three funerals, whose self-prepared guest list pointedly excluded President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania.

Acknowledging, “Donald Brandt, the head of APS, is a long, dear friend of John and mine,” and enumerating his many business awards, Hensley & Co. Anheuser-Busch beer heiress Cindy takes exception to the loud voices raised in protest of the utility’s policies that allowed electricity to be cut to the homes of elderly residents, resulting in gruesome heat-related deaths.

Responding to citizen outrage, Arizona Corporation Commission regulators recently imposed a summertime ban on disconnecting home customers following the latest such death of a Arizona Public Service Co. customer in Sun City West after her power was cut off for nonpayment of $51. The families of two other customers who similarly died have won undisclosed judgments against the utility.

Cindy‘s praise includes these inane words:

“And because I have seen Don’s kindness (during her husband‘s final illness), I know the recent tragedies that have befallen our community have impacted Don personally.

We all mourn the loss of life, and I hope he doesn’t mind my words on his behalf.”

After the deservedly bad press he’s been getting, “Don,” the exceedingly well compensated, high dollar donor to your husband’s campaigns and the McCain Institute, won’t mind a bit, Cindy.

Sheriff Joe sightings drive local newspaper berserk

July 15, 2019

Arpaio supporters know how to raise the left’s ire

It’s mid-July in Phoenix. Garden flowers wilt. Heat-induced lethargy sets in. This is hardly the time to taunt voters with campaign related enigmas. But if any name is a guaranteed attention grabber, it’s that of retired Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. 

The lunatics at the local newspaper are going even battier — with a report about the popular former sheriff, elected to an unprecedented six-four-year terms from 1993 to 2016. 

The report derisively describes large billboards mysteriously springing up around the Valley, making it all the more amusing to read. The billboards, featuring a large photo of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a badge affixed to his tailored uniform shirt, with law enforcement emblems on each upper sleeve, looks official enough to be a campaign ad. The rest of the billboard has white lettering on bright red background:  “Sheriff Joe.  One More time.  2020.”

That’s it. There is no declaration of an office, or who paid for the signs, though the spectacular tease exemplifies Arpaio, which makes it priceless.

The anything-for-a-buck editorial page editor Phil Boas, fearful of being next among the myriad staff cuts at the failing newspaper, reprehensibly oversaw the daily multi-pronged assault on Arpaio — his own father-in-law.

Current Sheriff Paul Penzone, who Boas helped elect, is supportive of open borders, and notable for referring to illegal aliens as “guests” immediately after he was sworn in. He won with a reported $3 Million cash infusion from his Socialist benefactor George Soros, who also funded the campaign of Kim Foxx, when she was a candidate for Cook County State’s Attorney.

Foxx, whose office became notorious after she dropped all charges against Empire actor Jussie Smollett following revelations he falsified a racist and homophobic attack against himself in a failed effort to raise his profile and salary. She was featured at a fundraiser hosted by Alex Soros, son of radical leftist billionaire, George Soros, who also donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to a super PAC supporting her.

Globalist Soros, also a dedicated McCain supporter, disdains national borders and favoring laxer criminal prosecution, used the same tactics in his failed attempt to remove Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery — attempting to replace him with an unknown, accommodating leftist. High dollar donations funneled through his PACs are his modus operandi throughout the country as noted by Politico in this report: George Soros’ quiet overhaul of the U.S. justice system. We urge you to read it.  Knowledge is power.  Prepare for the coming elections.


Anti-Trump bias vs. Ducey love fest

July 1, 2019

Inconsistent coverage in dealing with rogue nations

President Donald Trump was in Osaka, Japan meeting with world leaders at the G-20 Summit Friday and Saturday. Predictably, the lamestream media coverage of our president was negative.

His significant trade meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping resulting in resumption of talks and reigning in of tariffs was buried on page 8 of the USA Today insert of the daily newspaper. 

On Sunday, Trump became the first U.S. President to set foot in North Korea, briefly meeting in the Demilitarized Zone with Kim Jong Un. The historic meeting was characterized as a concession to the dictator, rather than opening the door to dialogue. Following the meeting, President Trump announced that the USA and Korea will relaunch stalled nuclear talks. Speaking of the meeting through a translator, Kim said, “I believe that this will have a positive force on all of our discussions in the future.”

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, on the other hand, is heralded for hosting the Arizona-Mexico Commission 2019 Summit in Phoenix. Mexico, abutting our southern border, has facilitated the passage of 100’s of thousands of illegal aliens from the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras through its own normally impenetrable southern border — through its interior — via caravans to the United States. Far from a spontaneous movement, it was strategically planned and supported by Mexico. Prior to this serious breech of so-called friendship, Mexico has long aided and abetted its own citizens as they invaded the United States, even printing comic books* in 2005, to assist the illiterate in evading capture.

Monies sent back to their native countries by Mexican and Central American illegals in 2018, amounted to a record $53.4 billion in American currency — tax-free remittances. Mexico and Central America benefited by this massive transfer of wealth siphoned out of the USA. That’s more than double the estimated cost of building a secure border barrier on the U.S./Mexico border. Taxing those billions of outgoing American dollars should begin immediately, with those monies earmarked to pay for the wall.

By way of a June 27, 2019 News Release, delusional Ducey extols the Arizona-Mexico Commission which he declares has focused on “strengthening Arizona’s relationship with Mexico,” and “promoting goodwill.”

To the rest of us who were not mentored in deceit by John McCain, this is insultingly preposterous. Ducey’s first job when he arrived in Arizona to attend ASU was working at Cindy Hensley McCain’s Hensley & Co., one of the largest Anheuser-Busch beer distributors in the nation. That early association was the basis for a longstanding friendship between the Ducey’s and McCain’s. John McCain, a committed amnesty proponent, encouraged Ducey’s political career. It shows.

McCain Institute falls on hard times

June 29, 2019

It took a total of three pages for the gloomy Page One story to be fleshed out. Listen closely and you can almost hear the gnashing of teeth over the ominous news bearing this headline: “ASU’s McCain Institute faces new challenges without senator.”

It’s a good bet the institute bearing the name of the deity worshiped by the adoring sycophants at the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic, was heading south prior to this lengthy admission of despair. McCain called Hillary arock starhe could support in 2016. They were both recipients of Socialist, America hating, multi-billionaire George Soros’ generosity.

The article interviews a high dollar donor who talks in terms of McCain’s “legacy,” always McCain’s paramount consideration. We are reminded that the man who graduated at the bottom of his U.S. Naval Academy class, was “the son and grandson of admirals” — which is how the flamboyant hotshot who crashed three navy planes, gained admittance to the USNA’s hallowed halls in the first place.

Cindy Lou Hensley McCain, a beer empire heiress, is given coverage. She is identified as a “humanitarian activist and philanthropist,” who also goes on record with talk of “advancing her husband’s legacy and values.” In fact, she has hired a Hollywood agent to book paid speaking engagements for her. Cindy’s going rate is between $5,000 and $10,000.

Between selling their luxury penthouse in the Biltmore area and buying and renovating a nearly $3 million French chateau inspired home in the upscale North Central corridor, she’s also been busy taking over as chairman of the Washington, D.C. based McCain Institute.

In her public statement, she said, “The mission of the McCain Institute, to advance values-based leadership around the world, has always been important to my family.  I believe the work of the Institute, from fighting human trafficking to training the next generation of international leaders to advancing human rights and democracy, is more important now than ever. I’m honored to take on this role, particularly as the Institute undertakes an ambitious set of new initiatives to expand its impact.”

Human trafficking is a topic Cindy McCain has made her hallmark, even when it involves blatant deception. Cindy concocted a preposterous story about witnessing the trafficking of a toddler at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, and went public with it, though her account was disputed by Phoenix Police.

The anorexic newspaper, back on the auction block, functions largely with student reporters, lacking editors. Now reduced to vagrant status after being forced to sell its 10-story building and parking garage, it pathetically pleads with readers, “Have news to share about Arizona’s U.S. senators or national politics? Reach [the reporter] on Twitter and Facebook.” Her contact info is included. “Support local journalism,” it begs. “Subscribe (newspaper’s link is provided) today.”


Major banks suffering Trump Derangement Syndrome

BofA joins Wells Fargo and Chase protesting border detention centers — preferring invasion

Families Belong Together is an open borders coalition founded in the conviction that the United Sates of America is ripe for the taking. Our sovereign borders mean nothing and our citizens should not only welcome illegal invaders, but financially support them.

The fact that we welcome a million, eager to assimilate, legal immigrants each year is irrelevant.

The anti-Trump organization has latched on to “separation of families at the border” as its defining issue, referring to it as a crisis. They claim to want to reunite families, through the implementation of “comprehensive immigration reform,” which in reality, as Sen. Ted Cruz pointed out in this interview with Rush Limbaugh, is rechristened “amnesty.” Those three words are all too familiar to Arizonans, who well remember John McCain and Jon Kyl’s alignment with the most liberal Democrats on the issue. They worked with leftists from Ted Kennedy to Gang of Eight members, including Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin and Robert Menendez. Single-term Sen. Jeff Flake replaced retired Kyl, and pushed ever harder for amnesty for illegals. Flake’s political career, based in Trump hatred and amnesty imploded.

Two of the largest private prison companies, CoreCivic and GeoGroup, have been contracted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to manage some of the detention centers housing the colossal numbers of illegals who have caravanned through Mexico to our border. Rick Moran writing for PJ Media reports nearly 90 percent of illegals fail to show up for court hearings.

Numerous radically left organizations, including Socialist George Soros’ MoveOn, the National Domestic Workers Alliance, MomsRising, Presente.org, In The Public Interest, Little Sis, Color of Change, Make the Road New York, AVAAZ, ACRE, Enlace, the Center for Popular Democracy, Freedom Cities, ROC United, Candide Group and others have joined Families Belong Together pressuring Wells Fargo and JP Morgan Chase banks to stop financing Geo Group and CoreCivic. They also want to abolish ICE, a new mantra of the left.

Wells Fargo and Chase were easy pushovers, Now they’ve been joined by Bank of America. These financial institutions have made it clear they prefer hindering President Trump’s Herculean efforts at national security. The banks bizarrely support the invasion of our country in preference to their American customers. This is a partial listing of other federally insured banks. Notice the banks that align with illegal aliens also stick it to their customers with the lowest interest rates. 

According to this most recent World Bank report, illegal aliens and actual immigrants sent a record $53.4 billion in American currency — tax-free remittances — back to Mexico and Central America in 2018 in a massive transfer of wealth siphoned out of the USA. That’s more than double the estimated cost of building a secure border barrier on the U.S./Mexico border. These numbers exclude remittances sent to other countries.

Taxing those billions of outgoing American dollars should begin immediately, with those monies earmarked to pay for the wall.


AZ Sen. Martha McSally: If you want to win in 2020, show us

June 17, 2019

Partnering with Dem presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand on “doping” is dopey

Sen. McSally,

You are facing ideological leftist Mr. Gabby Giffords aka Mark Kelly, whose 2020 senate campaign is being infused with cash by multi-billionaire Socialist George Soro‘s Act Blue.

Although the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic refers to you as “Arizona’s most reliable vote for Trump’s agenda,” realize that as the backhanded wallop it was intended to be. The newspaper will not endorse you.

Mark Levin’s Conservative Review is less than enthusiastic giving you a Liberty Score of D, or 67% — nothing short of unacceptable, if you’re attempting to win over the conservative voters you need.

Giffords/Kelly, a hypocritical Second Amendment restrictionist and open border fan, is chomping at the bit to replace you…which brings us to the topic of horses. With Arizona’s sieve-like southern border serving as a major point of entry for illegal aliens — foreign nationals from Central America and Mexico, but also as far removed from our hemisphere as Africa, India and points beyond — you have ready-made topics which resonate with the Republican base. Mexican border towns abutting Cochise County, Arizona are war zones with dozens slaughtered as casualties of the drug cartels.

Instead, for some inexplicable reason, you chose to address the topic ofrace horse doping.’ We oppose doping of any sort, especially when it comes to the electorate. Cozying up with New York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand on this issue is pure folly. In the race of your life, she is also running — for the Democrat nomination to unseat Republican President Donald Trump.

Remember him? He’s our GOP standard bearer not a prop you stand beside when you think the photo-op serves your purposes. Emulating John McCain is a mistake. His modus operandi was colluding with Democrats from Ted Kennedy to Chuck Schumer, which was a major reason he was censured by elected GOP state committeemen at the Jan. 25, 2014 Statutory Republican Meeting.

When you lost the U.S. Senate to chameleon Kyrsten Sinema, it sent shock waves. You then became the recipient of a rare, follow-up gubernatorial appointment to an open seat. That opportunity will not present itself again. If you don’t fight to retain that Senate seat, your do-over days will be over and Arizona will be represented by a deep blue senate duo.

You were a fighter pilot and the first female commander of a combat fighter squadron. Act like it.

Your sole focus should be on supporting the President and his winning issues. The Dems will forget they knew you when you no longer serve their purposes. If you believe in bi-partisanship, you obviously still believe in Santa and the tooth fairy. Bi-partisanship is a noble goal in the legislative process, but it only exists if Republicans acquiesce and move leftward. There is no reciprocity from the Dems. Gillibrand has gone from supporting restrictions on illegals to now calling for the abolishment of ICE. You’re from Tucson, Martha. How’s that border working out for you?

King Colluder John McCain preferred to be known as a maverick,” to conceal the collaborator he was. Those shenanigans won’t win you Democrat votes when you are facing radical leftist and Obama pal, Mr. Gabby Giffords/Mark Kelly. You need the conservative electorate to turn out, but you won’t get us by partnering with Trump’s presidential challenger, far-left Kirsten Gillibrand. Like your opponent, Mr. Giffords/Kelly, Gillibrand is supported by ActBlue. Individual contributions through ActBlue are easily accessed on the Federal Election Commission website.

Your strategy, Martha, amounts to a personal and GOP death wish. The rest of us relish life and having Donald Trump as president.


Memo to McSally: Thrashing Trump is key to failure

June 1, 2019

There’s a lesson to be learned from Jeff Flake’s political nose-dive

Martha McSally, who served two terms in congress representing CD 2, was appointed to the U.S. Senate seat she currently occupies. The gubernatorial appointment followed her loss to Kyrsten Sinema, a foul-mouthed, self-declared bisexual and atheist with Communist leanings. Sinema creatively recrafted her image and was elected to replace anti-Trump Republicrat Jeff Flake whose 18% approval ratings were so low he opted against running for a second term.  McSally was appointed to replace Sen. Jon Kyl, who briefly filled the second senate seat after the death of John McCain. Kyl resumed his far more lucrative D.C. lobbying gig.

Arizona’s political musical chairs require a scorecard.

Now McSally is facing the electorate again and can’t decide who her base is, as political novice and hardened leftwinger Mr. Gabreille Giffords, (Mark Kelly) launches a senate challenge.

This race should be a cakewalk. But rather than embarking on an aggressive campaign supporting Republican President Trump, McSally has decided to move into the political wilderness. She supports an investigation into the foolish story of whether the USS McCain, docked in Japan, was hidden from the president during his trip to Japan. McSally has also joined her Democrat 2020 rival Mark “Giffords” Kelly opposing the president’s calls for tariffs on Mexican imports if Mexico doesn’t stop aiding hundreds of thousands of Central American illegals invading the USA.  The incrementally increasing tariffs, preceded by a warning, will only be imposed if Mexico chooses to continue facilitating the invasion.

As the first U.S. female fighter pilot to fly in combat and first to command a fighter combat squadron it should be assumed that McSally would not be reticent to wage a battle with Giffords/Kelly rather than playing the antagonist to the Republican President of the United States.

Keep up your foolishness, Martha, and not only will you not get the Democrat or registered Independent votes you seek, you will lose the Trump-supporting Republican base you need.

The leftist local newspaper has already begun hammering you. It’s a cinch it will endorse Mark “Giffords” Kelly. You need us. But we don’t come easy and you can’t take us for granted. It’s time to retool your campaign to garner our support.  Otherwise, you’ll lose again and your next appointment will be to the political graveyard.
