Impeachment circus: Dem law prof. channels McCain, mocks kids

December 5, 2019

Constitutional scholar Prof. Jonathan Turley, not a Trump supporter, comes to the president’s defense at impeachment hearing

Democrat partisan Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan, who donated $1,000 to Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign, veered off into the stratosphere at the impeachment farce Wednesday when she was asked how the powers of a president differ from those of a British king.

Karlan, a childless, married lesbian, eagerly jumped at the opportunity to slam the Trump family, by invoking their 13-year-old son, saying kings had virtually unlimited authority while the Constitution limits presidential powers. To illustrate her point, she referenced President Trump’s son, Barron.

“The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility, so while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron,” Karlan said to laughter and appreciative applause from the Democrats in the hearing room.

First Lady Melania Trump’s rapid response elicited an apology from the boorish law professor, who later said she regretted her comment.

Karlan’s comments bring to mind the slur that John McCain used to mock Bill and Hillary Clinton’s then-teenage daughter, Chelsea. McCain, appearing at an Arizona fundraiser asked a room full of high dollar donors, “Do you know why Chelsea Clinton is so ugly?” He then provided his own answer, saying, “Because Janet Reno (then-U.S. Attorney General) is her father.” Mannish and single, Reno was 6′ 2”.

Pamela Karlan stood in stark contrast to Constitutional scholar and George Washington University Law professor Jonathan Turley, who told the House Judiciary Committee that he did not vote for Donald Trump for president, but said the Democrats were abusing their power in bringing this “slipshod” partisan case and “setting a dangerous precedent.” Turley, cautioned against the impeachment, saying that to proceed on this course against President Trump based on the current evidence “would be to expose every future president to the same type of inchoate impeachment.” His full statement can be viewed here.

 


Ailing Ginsburg revs up impeachment contrivance

November 24, 2019

At their core — assuming they have one — Democrat politicos know President Donald Trump has done nothing to warrant impeachment. They’ve used every trick in the book, from bogus Russian and Chinese collusion, to Ukrainian quid pro quo dealings, which recently morphed into Godfather-like “extortion and bribery,” after deciding to “ditch the Latin,” in a futile effort to gain traction in their attempts to oust the duly elected Republican President. Nothing sticks, because there is no ‘there,’ there.

Adding urgency to their deception, the Dems are up against an 86-year old ticking time bomb whose fuse is primed to ignite. Former ACLU lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court by Bill Clinton. Her 1993 senate confirmation vote was nearly unanimous, with only three Republicans voting in opposition. When it suited his purpose, John McCain claimed to be pro-life. Ginsburg clearly was not, McCain voted in support of her confirmation.

Ginsburg has never hidden her contempt for the U.S. Constitution, as evidenced by this 2012 suggestion (brief video) to Egyptian revolutionaries.

Nearing 90, she has undergone repeated, serious bouts of lung, stomach and pancreatic cancers requiring surgeries and lengthy radiation treatments. Earlier this month, she missed Supreme Court oral arguments due to a stomach infection and previously, due to broken ribs suffered in a fall.

Ginsburg was initially evaluated Friday at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. She was then admitted to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore after experiencing what was described as “chills and fever,” where she received intravenous antibiotics and fluids, according to this Nov. 23, Supreme Court press release that minimizes the severity of her condition — though serious enough to require a change of hospitals.

Ginsburg passed on retirement during Obama’s administration, opting to be replaced by Hillary, a major miscalculation in which conservatives can rejoice. Since the election of President Trump, she has clung to the SCOTUS seat by her fingernails rather than grant him the opportunity to make a third appointment to the high court after Neil Gorsuch (2017) and Brett Kavanaugh (2018) provided a 5-4 Republican majority on the court.

Anti-Trumper Lindsey Graham opportunistically contorts into Trump supporter

November 4, 2019

McMaverick’s inseparable sidekick magically transforms, but can he be trusted?

Republicans are symbolized by the elephant for good reason. We share the animal’s strength, intellect and determination. We also possess long memories, a trait for which the impressive creatures are noted.

These characteristics are relevant in the context of political battles and alliances as they relate to besieged President Trump. Democrats and RINOcrats hammer him daily. Trump antagonist Mitt Romney, who deceivingly courted president-elect Trump, desperate to be named secretary of state, also campaigned with anti-Trump McCain, drawing less than stellar crowds. This Arizona Independent News Network cartoon and report links to a SRAZ post on an abysmal turnout. McCain returned the favor, though he fumblingly introduced Romney (video) as “President Obama.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a McCain devotee, appears to have moderated his stance on President Trump, advocating against the covert proceedings as the dems attempt to invalidate the 2016 election via impeachment.  Many conservatives remain skeptical of Graham’s newfound support of the president he routinely assailed when his loyal partner McCain was still above ground. Bachelor Graham described his relationship with McCain, stating, “It was a political marriage.”

Suddenly Graham, up for reelection in 2020, is a fervent supporter of President Trump. Graham is keenly aware his home state of South Carolina gave all nine of its electoral votes to Donald Trump, who carried the state with 54.9% to Hillary’s 40.7%.

Lest anyone be lulled into thinking Lindsey Graham has done a complete turnaround. This was Graham in December 2015 — 4 short years ago — appearing on CNN.

 Graham accused Donald Trump of being a “race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot, the ISIL Man of the Year, undercutting everything we stand for, empowering our enemy… culminating with…“and you know how you make America great again? Tell Donald Trump to go to hell!”

Sens. Graham, McCain, and Romney (elected in Utah, Jan. 2019), joined by now ex-senator Jeff Flake, all publicly stated they would not vote for Trump in 2016. 

Romney and Flake have one other area of significance in common.  Flake had an 18% approval rating in his home state of Arizona, causing him to abandon his campaign for a second senate term. Romney is polling at exactly the same nationally, with only 18 % having a positive image of Romney, according to this NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey released Sunday. Romney opposes additional funding for a border wall. Utah is well on its way to becoming a sanctuary state.

Trusting opportunist Lindsey Graham is a fool’s errand.


Mitt outed as narcissistic self-defending twitter “lurker”

October 22, 2019

Now that Utah Sen. Mitt Romney has been uncloaked as “Pierre Delecto,” a nom de plume he affected on his surreptitious, self-adoring twitter account, the disclosure begged for more answers.

When the deceit was discovered and he was asked if he was, in fact, Pierre Delecto, he embarrassingly answered in the affirmative, though not in English. Mitt Romney, whose Michigan governor father, George, was born in Mexico, didn’t respond in Spanish, either.  Nope.  He went into full Pierre Delecto mode, admitting, “C’est moi,”  French for “it’s me.” Romney was forced to confess he used the sham account and false name to defend himself against detractors.

A bit of checking revealed his fluency was due to the 2 1/2 years in the 60s he spent in France while fulfilling his Church mission, giving him the ability to respond as his alter ego Pierre Delecto would. Pierre likes Mitt.  He really likes Mitt.

The pro-abortion and open border supporting former Governor of Massachusetts was so inept, he lost the 2008 GOP presidential nomination to John McCain. In 2012, he lost to incumbent president Barack Obama. After vilifying Donald Trump, he came begging for the Secretary of State position when Trump was elected in 2016.  President Trump let him grovel, but was too smart to bring Pierre Delecto into his cabinet, to undermine him and his policies.

McPolitics as usual? Robert Graham eyes state legislature

October 14, 2019

Over a year and three funerals later, it was natural to assume we had heard the last of John McCain.

Nope.

Last week, the local Hillary-endorsing newspaper contained an insert with a smirking John McCain in full color gracing the cover page. It was headlined, “2nd shot for McCain vision,” describing an “ideas competition,” though sounding more like a threat than a promise. The failing newspaper still worships at the McCain altar, routinely covering him and his family.

Now we’re hearing that McCain sycophant Robert Graham, a former AZ GOP chairman, and the CEO of ROI Global Partners, a lobbying and public relations group promising “World Class Results,” is weighing the idea of running for a state House seat in Legislative District 15. Both House seats will be open due to the current members going head-to-head competing for the single senate seat. No doubt it will be a cakewalk for slickster McCain protégé Graham.

He has now reconfigured himself as a solid Trump supporter though he boycotted Trump’s initial Phoenix campaign rally that had to be moved twice to larger venues to accommodate the enormous crowd. Graham was conveniently “out of town.”  John McCain and Jeff Flake made no such excuses. They refused to support Donald Trump even as he was the Republican nominee. Both stated neither they nor their families would vote for Trump — who became president without them.

Was it a coincidence or gratitude that Robert Graham’s namesake son, Rob, was appointed to the U.S. Naval Academy by John McCain?


The specter of McCain still haunts

October 2, 2019

…though Halloween is weeks away

Kurt Volker recently resigned as U.S. envoy to Ukraine. He previously served as ambassador to NATO under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Volker joined the Trump State Department in 2017 when he was appointed by then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Since then, Volker, never considered a Trump insider, has been “mediating” the Ukrainian crisis on behalf of the United States. The Daily Caller has more here. The White House released the declassified and un-redacted transcript of President Donald Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that became the center of a so-called whistleblower complaint.

We don’t claim to be experts on intrigue associated with international relations. But Kurt Volker’s name is associated with the McCain Institute for International Leadership on the grounds of Arizona State University and also in DC, raising the curiosity antenna more than a few notches. One of its “guiding objectives” is self promotion: grandiosely stated asPromote and preserve the McCain family legacy of character-driven leadership and national service.”

Kurt Volker, scheduled to testify to congress Thursday, is drawing a salary of $330,000 as executive director of the McCain Institute, which receives funding from George Soros and a DC lobbying firm working for Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, among others. Scroll down to the BGR Group and read the paragraph under the photo of Volker.

Where there’s been a McCain connection, Socialist one-worlder, multi-billionaire George Soros is never far away as SRAZ has previously pointed out:

Facts expose Daniel McCarthy’s distortions of Sen. Martha McSally

September 24, 2019

McCain RINOs donating to Dem Mark Kelly

Arizona voters listening to U.S. Senate wannabe Daniel McCarthy would be led to believe that John McCain is alive and well, wearing lipstick, earrings, sporting a dark shoulder-length haircut and campaigning to keep his senate seat.

That’s the misrepresentation the abysmally lacking in credentials 34-year-old Daniel McCarthy, who is challenging Arizona’s sole Republican U.S. Senator, Martha McSally, would have voters accept.

The Washington Examiner, in a must-read report, puts those claims to rest as it illuminates high dollar McCain donors who have now switched their allegiance to Democrat Mark Kelly, the husband of former U. S. Rep. Gabby Giffords.  

The switch makes sense since John McCain was as left-leaning as any Democrat.

This realignment of Republicrat John McCain’s former donors with leftist, Second Amendment restrictionist Mark Kelly clearly defines McSally as the Constitutionalist in the race. Kelly uses a load of double talk to conceal his actual agenda. The group he and Giffords co-founded  which Kelly refers to as a “gun safety organization” is anything but. It has gone though several name changes and mergers and is now known as the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. Its political arm, Giffords PAC, raises money, coaches and then endorses anti-Second Amendment candidates in key races, and — in its own words — runs campaigns to “shine a spotlight on elected officials who support dangerous gun laws.”

Like his friend Barack Obama, Kelly, a dedicated leftist, is pro-abortion, limp on border issues, wants to impose Green New Deal federal standards estimated to cost $93 trillion to address climate change and supports unsustainable government provided universal health for all. 

According to Federal Election Commission data, Kelly is significantly surpassing the fundraising all national senate candidates of both parties. He is aided by Socialist multi-billionaire George Soros, who despises the idea of national borders. Soros’ Act Blue has been hosting D.C. fundraisers for Kelly.

Inexperienced and gaffe-prone Daniel McCarthy’s ego driven entry into this race will force Republican incumbent Sen. Martha McSally into an expensive primary and effectively guarantee the political extremist Mark Kelly a senate seat. Don’t be conned.
