Ann Coulter: “Big sell-out is coming”

December 4, 2016

Doubts Trump’s pledge to build wall

Author, lawyer, and conservative political pundit Ann Coulter was on-board early as a committed Donald Trump supporter. As with many of us, illegal immigration rose to the top of her list. Coulter even wrote a book, “In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!” — one of 11 that have made the New York Times best sellers list.

In her recent column, “How Trump could ruin his presidency,” Coulter quotes from Trump’s Phoenix immigration speech where he laid out his 10-Point Immigration Plan:

“To all the politicians, donors and special interests, hear these words from me and all of you today. There is only one core issue in the immigration debate, and that issue is the well-being of the American people.” 

Many of us were among the thousands who stood in line for hours that Sept. 2016 day. We heard those words and cheered.

This is Ann Coulter’s recent tweet as it relates to Trump’s stance on the wall, and her lack of faith that he will follow through on his promise to build it and finally secure our border. There is no comfort in the fact that Vice President-elect Mike Pence said he and House Speaker Paul Ryan would be the ones spearheading the “illegal immigration” fix. Ryan is among the least trustworthy on the issue.

For an excellent exposé of Paul Ryan’s leftward lurch on the topic of criminal illegal aliens, American Thinker has a must read post, “When it comes to illegal immigrants, Paul Ryan sides with Democrats,” Author Catharine Evans calls Ryan’s disconnect from reality when it comes to illegals crossing our border and killing innocent Americans “staggering.” If you read nothing else today, this is post is deserving of your attention.

The equivalent would be reprising the disastrous “Gang of Eight” scheme with amnesty pimps, John McCain, Jeff Flake, Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Marco Rubio & Co. We’ve been down this road before with numerous attempts going back to McCain, Jon Kyl and Ted Kennedy to saddle Americans with the device they called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.”

It’s time to hold Donald Trump’s feet to the fire.  In allowing Paul Ryan anywhere near this issue the honeymoon is doomed before the marriage begins on January 20, 2017.

 

 


Jockeying for RNC chair begins in earnest

December 2, 2016

Ambitious Robert Graham picked the wrong team with anti-Trump McCain and Flake

In mid-February we reported AZ GOP chair Robert Graham maneuvers for top RNC post which included an ASU Cronkite News video with Graham replicating a McCain gaffe confusing Barack Obama with what appears to be any Republican. McCain confused Mitt Romney with Barack Obama. In Graham’s case he mistook “Mr. Trump” for Obama — not  a recommended move for a guy angling to lead the Republican National Committee.

Both mortifying videos and more are included in the linked report.

The hurdles are getting trickier for the ambitious and vindictive Robert Graham to navigate. Graham’s quest to replace former RNC Chairman Reince Priebus — who has been tapped as President-elect Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff — appears to be evaporating.

Though other names are being mentioned, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, an early Donald Trump supporter, is said to be considering running for the lead spot in the Republican Party. 

With Priebus now busy with the formation of the Trump cabinet and transition team, there is an urgency to fill the intra-party post. Unlike a cabinet position, the RNC chair doesn’t require congressional confirmation.

Christie, who formerly chaired the Republican Governors Association and has relationships with many of the party’s key donors appears to be in the advantageous catbird seat.

It should be remembered that neither Robert Graham nor his mentors John McCain and Jeff Flake attended Donald Trump’s initial rally when thousands of supporters waited in line for hours in the scorching July 11, 2015 heat at the Phoenix Convention Center to hear Trump speak. Maricopa County Chairman Tyler Bowyer hosted the event and he and Sheriff Joe Arpaio were onstage with now President-elect Trump. The two senators and Graham boycotted Trump’s subsequent Arizona appearances. McCain, who has referred to conservatives as “crazies” and has worked to purge them from elected precinct committeemen posts, eventually withdrew his lukewarm support of Trump. Blowhard Flake made headlines by making the rounds of broadcast networks telling whoever would listen that Trump was not worthy of his support — a traitorous message the liberal media were all too eager to air. With Donald Trump letting no grass grow under his feet as he puts together his team prior to his Jan. 20, 2017 inaugural — Graham should be dismissed out of hand.

Obama’s frequent traveling companion and basketball teammate Jeff Flake, always eager to promote amnesty for illegals, will be a candidate for reelection in 2018 and should feel the same sting of rejection. He represents no one but his own ego.


Failed prez candidate McCain threatens Trump, Arizonans

November 21, 2016

Better brush up on our spelling

According to John McCain’s assigned sycophantic reporter at the daily newspaper, the elderly senator is not only warning President-elect Donald Trump that the Republican controlled U.S. Senate “will not be his rubber stamp,” but he won’t rule out running again for another 6-year term at age 86. We can imagine him mumbling under his breath, “No one can do the job like me.” (video)

Dan Nowicki quotes McCain as saying, “I feel great; my mother will be 105 in February.”

Our Monday morning prediction? We’re going to have to learn to spell Giuliani, as in Secretary of State. Mitt Romney was a bridge too far as a 2008 and 2012 candidate.  He‘d be a mega mistake as incoming President Trump’s  foreign policy adviser.


Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter

November 20, 2016

As we enter this Thanksgiving week, we’d like to give thanks for the wisdom and wit of Dr. Thomas Sowell, still writing splendidly and imparting his own special brand of insight in his 86th year.

This post is not a break from politics — few among us actually yearn for that as we still revel in the recent election results and now await President-elect Donald Trump’s full cabinet appointments and inauguration. Americans spoke decisively with the 2016 election of the Donald Trump / Mike Pence ticket and Republican majorities in the U.S. House and Senate — having had their fill of “Hope and Change” that was mostly played out on golf courses and a world-wide apology tour.

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to readWhat now for Obamacare and the Court?

Dr. Sowell’s column was posted in the New Hampshire Union Leader.  The far-left Arizona Republic no longer has an op-ed page. The newspaper only prints ops. Its own. Opinions that are liberally flavored with its favorite seasonings of open borders salsa and far-left extremism, as they routinely endorse George Soros funded candidates, as evidenced here and here.


AZ GOP chair Robert Graham maneuvers for top RNC post

November 17, 2016

Like his mentor John McCain, Robert Graham stumbles over who the Republican nominee actually is, saying “in charge of the transition for Obama…I mean…Mr. Trump.”  (video 1:17)

You’ll recall John McCain confused Mitt Romney with Barack Obama during his endorsement speech for Mitt Romney.

When Arizona’s U.S. Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake refused to support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump against radical leftist Democrat Hillary Clinton in the national primary election, Robert Graham went mute. He didn’t open his mouth when longstanding elected Republican precinct committeemen were systematically purged from their ranks and replaced with McCain sycophants, whose sole purpose is to vote for the McRINO officer slates at key state and county meetings.

SRAZ has written numerous articles about Robert Graham and his establishment ties. Here are just a few:

Trump’s victory exposes McCain, Flake’s hypocrisy

November 13, 2016

In the weeks preceding the Nov. 8 election, Arizona’s two pretentious Republicrat senators John McCain and Jeff Flake went to great lengths denigrating Donald Trump — they each made a grand show of saying they would not vote for him.  McCain’s statement can be read here.  One of Jeff Flake’s many public declarations on the subject is here.

Now Trump is the president-elect, and the duplicitous duo are vying to be the one to plant the most kisses on his posterior. These two hypocrites would do well to remember that the symbol of the Republican Party is the elephant — noted for it’s excellent memory. Since both McCain and Flake are unreliable squish Republicrats, we should never forget that they each voted against Trump.  Regardless of how you slice it, those were votes for Hillary Clinton — who is as much a bottom dragger in the areas of honesty and trustworthiness as these two goons are. The Daily Caller noted that John McCain’s abysmal 30 percent approval rating was topped only by Jeff Flake, whose approval rating has fallen to 27 percent!

McCain’s change of heart tweet:

“Congrats to President-Elect Donald Trump. As Chairman of the Armed Service Committee, I’ll work to confront national security challenges and support troops.”

The words McCain publicly used to describe his own wife were far worse than what  he claimed was so offensive.

Jeff the Flake was also quick to lavish praise:

 “Congrats to President-Elect Trump on a big win and a gracious and healing speech. I look forward to working with him. Now, back to eating crow.”

Flake’s son Tanner used far more offensive language, denigrating any and all on his Facebook postings. Tanner never had to acknowledge his despicable behavior and apologize.  Daddy apologized for him.

Hypocrisy is the name of the game with these two fraudulent Republicans. Trust them at your own peril.


Political dynasties: Generational job security

November 12, 2016

On the downhill slide but unable to relinquish power, former President Bill Clinton misspeaks,  and spaces out while chewing on his tongue and in an attempt to ensure his scandal-plagued wife isn’t indicted, inappropriately maneuvers to meet clandestinely with U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at Sky Harbor Airport — ostensibly to discuss his golf game and grandchildren. (wink, wink.)

The Clinton’s have been known as less than upstanding throughout their political careers which Bill jump-started in Arkansas when he first was elected Attorney General and then Governor. 

Prior to her stint in the U,S. Senate and appointment as Secretary of State (supported by both Jon Kyl and John McCain), Hillary busied herself threatening Bill’s female squeezes, declaring word of his numerous dalliances were part of the “vast right wing conspiracy.” His own staff was much more on target, referring to the ongoing revelations as “bimbo eruptions.” 

Now the New York Post reports that Chelsea Clinton is being groomed for a congressional seat when U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey, 79, retires. Just as most parents do, the Clinton’s purchased the $1.16 million house next door to theirs to guarantee Chelsea a residence within the congressional district

This political dynasty appears endless. Chelsea’s husband, Marc Mezvinsky is the son of Edward Mezvinsky, a Democrat former U.S. Rep. who represented Iowa’s 1st congressional district from 1973-1977.  But the story doesn’t stop there. Freedom Outpost reports that Ed Mezvinsky was indicted — and pled guilty — to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. He was finally caught embezzling more than $10 million through a Ponzi scheme he devised involving a Nigerian e-mail scam. He was sentenced to 80 months in federal prison.  After his release and probation, he still owes $9.4 million in restitution. ABC News carries an in-depth reportEd Mezvinsky’s former wife Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky — also a Democrat — is a former U.S. Rep. from Pennsylvania.

The large Kennedy family has had generations of family members holding elective office in several states — all as Democrats. Republicans are no slackers in this arena.  The Bush Family, produced father and son U.S. Presidents. George H. W. Bush and his son George W.  Hungry for the ultimate job, Jeb Bush, a former Governor of Florida generated no enthusiasm as a Republican presidential candidate. He might have fared better running as the liberal he is. Jeb’s son George P. Bush holds public office in Texas.

But, we digress.  Back to Chelsea. She and hubby Marc have two young children. Will they be put on this political conveyor belt for job security? It’s heady stuff having drivers and security details, and rooms full of people stand and applaud you for merely walking in. The pay isn’t bad either.  There’s even more if you start a “ Foundation.
