Gov. Scott Walker suspends campaign, raising question

September 21, 2015

Does the GOP electorate actually want an outsider in the White House, making the tough decisions in these uncertain times?

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has terminated his presidential campaign as his poll numbers continued to plummet from an 18%  lead in May.

The accomplished governor who successfully fought out-of-control unions, implemented conservative reforms, slashed Wisconsin’s unemployment rate to 4.6% and became the only governor in American history to survive a 2012 recall election — actually garnering more votes and a higher percentage than in his 2010 election — suspended his campaign today.

Republicans appear to prefer people with no government experience running the government during these precarious times. Dr. Ben Carson, Donald Trump and Carly Fiorina continue to generate enthusiasm and see their numbers surge.

Carly Fiorina: A spiteful McRINO, not a victim

September 20, 2015

Donald Trump’s comment on Carly Fiorina’s appearance garnered widespread negative coverage. As she played the victim role to the hilt, Fiorina gave an award-winning performance.

But in the brutal world of presidential campaigns, nothing remains hidden for long. This video shows hypocritical Carly Fiorina making snide remarks about Sen. Barbara Boxer’s “so yesterday” hair style (4:00) during their 2010 senate race. Fiorina also used the opportunity to take potshots at Sean Hannitty. “You know how he is,” she tells an off-screen associate.

After watching the “victim” as a catty aggressor, read “The Conservative Case Against Carly Fiorina,” by John Hawkins. You’ll find an establishment-backed moderate with long ties to John McCain. Her newly burnished conservative label is merely campaign re-branding.

RedState’s Erick Erickson unmasked Carly Fiorina in 2010.

“From her praise of Jesse Jackson, to her playing the race and gender cards against Chuck DeVore, to her support for the Wall Street bailouts, to her qualified support for the Obama stimulus, to her past support for taxation of sales on the Internet, to her waffling on immigration, to her support for Sonia Sotomayor, to her Master’s thesis advocating greater federal control of local education, to her past support for weakening California’s Proposition 13, to her statement to the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board that Roe v. Wade is “a decided issue,” Carly Fiorina’s oft-repeated claim to be a “lifelong conservative” was only plausible in the universe of NRSC staffers who recruited her in the first place. She endorsed Federal funding of embryonic stem-cell research for “extra” embryos. She endorsed the California DREAM Act, which grants in-state tuition to illegal immigrants. She refused to endorse California’s Proposition 23, which suspends the job-killing AB 32 climate-change law….”

The closest Carly comes to conservatism is when she inadvertently opens a dictionary to the page where the word is listed.

KTAR broadcasts in Spanish: “The voice for a better AZ”

September 16, 2015

File this under “We couldn’t make this stuff up”

The radio trade paper NTS Media Online runs a riveting piece under the heading “Talk and Media News Notes.” The final item features Phoenix radio station KTAR doing a show Thursday night called “Hispanic in Arizona.” If you’re an English-speaking American, this is not the place for you, since the show will be entirely “en Espanol!”

This Thursday evening (9/17) KTAR-FM/Phoenix will host Hispanic In Arizona, a first of its kind, two-hour community roundtable discussion, with one hour to be broadcast exclusively in Spanish. Commenting on the upcoming special program, Bonneville/Phoenix VP Content and Operations Ryan Hatch said, “Our goal at KTAR News is to be the voice for a better Arizona and to connect with our community in a meaningful way. We’re very proud to be the first English-speaking radio station in Arizona history to host a show in Spanish.”

Some of our astute readers may remember an April Fool’s joke in 2009 when then local talk show host JD Hayworth ran an announcement from “The Commission” in “Washington, DC” stipulating that going forward KFYI would be REQUIRED to broadcast in Spanish for two hours each night. The spoof announcement ran in Spanish and English, and caused quite a commotion, though it was, of course, a joke.

Now, KTAR is actually doing it — and in the process, looks to replace the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) on the “Politically Correct Pander Meter.”

Ann Coulter introduces Donald Trump in Iowa

“God hasn’t given up on America yet”

Watch this video and listen to a healthy dose of truth and reality as Ann Coulter speaks of the “policies of speech nazis.”

More from Iowa. Donald Trump v. Jorge Ramos: Trump wins!

Univision’s Jorge Ramos, an ethnic activist, is not a journalist —  as he purports to be. Watch Donald Trump’s able handling of this intentionally rude and provocative, pro-illegal bully.

Ben Carson’s Phoenix rally: Record-breaking crowd

August 19, 2015

Anti-Washington fervor thrusts political outsiders Trump, Carson, Fiorina to prominence

Dr. Ben Carson, a faith-based, pro-life, Second Amendment and flat-tax supporting neurosurgeon opposes Obamacare, and told the massive crowd assembled to hear him speak what is entailed in making America healthy again.  He brought his message to an estimated 12,000 attendees who braved the 105° temperatures to hear his message at the Phoenix Convention Center Tuesday. Like the July 11 Trump event, it was moved to the massive venue to accommodate a larger than expected crowd.

The oversized gathering was quite a feat considering the Carson for President campaign lacks a coordinator in Arizona. Like Donald Trump, it used an online invitation service to issue event tickets. In answering audience questions prior to his speech, Carson said his administration’s budget would include “doing whatever was necessary to seal the borders, Southern, Northern, Atlantic and Pacific.”  Unlike Trump, however, he opposes mass deportation as an unworkable plan.

Today Carson embarks on a tour of Arizona’s southern border, a major portal for the flood of illegals, drugs, crime and those with terrorist intent, invading the United States. Carson has scheduled a series of public events throughout his visit.

McCain embarrassed again: Chased off Navajo Nation

August 18, 2015

Navajo activists shout at McCain: “Get off our land”

The less than enthusiastic welcome John McCain received as he and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey visited the Navajo Nation in northern Arizona is garnering plenty of attention. The Blaze, Western Journalism and Raw Story are just a few of the sites reporting on the middle-finger reception that greeted McCain.

When John McCain was censured in 2014 by fed-up Republican elected officials and booed in 2015 at the state GOP meeting the following year, he got off easy. Angry Republicans are a staid lot compared to irate Navajos. We could stand to learn a thing or two about in-tandem sprinting after vehicles and shouting while carrying signs — an action they’ve perfected.

McCain and Ducey traveled to the reservation to participate in a ceremony commemorating the unique contributions of Navajo Code Talkers — whose use of their native language baffled the Japanese in the Pacific during World War II — and meet with tribal and community leaders. Instead, McCain was met by protesters at two separate locations, and was literally chased off the tribal land.

Check out The Blaze for the back story to the reception.

Here’s hoping those expressing dissatisfaction with John McCain keep their ire up and work to get out the vote for Dr. Kelli Ward — who provides all Arizonans a real choice.

Pres. Richard Nixon resigned 41 years ago today

August 8, 2015

War on conservatives has deep roots

There is a correlation between the taking down of President Richard Nixon and the removal of Gov. Evan Mecham from office here in Arizona. The media despised both of the Republicans for their conservative bent and went after them with relentless fervor. Mecham, a successful businessman and former state senator, faced a simultaneous impeachment, recall and endured a criminal trial — in which he was acquitted of the charges brought against him. The press was on a mission to remove him from the day the ballots were counted in 1986 and he was declared the winner.

Both men served their country in the military. Mecham was an Army Air Corps officer, a decorated war hero, and was held as a prisoner during World War II.

After completing law school and working in the legal field, Nixon served as a Navy Lieutenant Commander in the Pacific during World War II, winning numerous medals.

Most people know of his resignation (video) as a result of what was referred to as the Watergate scandal, but few are aware of his numerous accomplishments while President. From his days in the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate, he was a leading anti-Communist when Communism was the major threat to our life and liberty, as Islamic terrorism is acknowledged to be today. He was also Governor of California and  served eight years as Vice President of the United States. Richard Nixon was reelected in 1972 by one of the largest landslides in U.S. history. 

Long before it was trendy, Pres. Nixon established the Environmental Protection Agency. He ended American involvement in the Vietnam War, bringing home American prisoners. Nixon ended the military draft and lowered the voting age from 21 to 18, reasoning that if you were old enough to serve your country in the military during combat, you should be old enough to vote for those who govern us. His presidential administration supported transferring power from Washington to the states, and he supported and enforced desegregation of Southern schools, opposed by Democrats. Nixon opened previously closed diplomatic relations between the U.S. and China and initiated détente, which he referred to as  a “thawing out” of relations with the Soviet Union, resulting in the much heralded Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. 

There’s more to the story.
