RNC Chair reprimands Jeff Flake with “cautionary tale”

August 10, 2017

RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel takes Flake to the woodshed for anti-Trump rhetoric. AZ GOP chairman Jonathan Lines remains mute

Readers of the AZ GOP’s Daily Updates, which inanely bills itself as “The Only Official Newsletter of the Arizona Republican Party!” — a jab at the fact-filled and widely read MCRC Briefs — would think everything was copacetic within the party hierarchy.  But a growing rift, evidenced by a stinging reprimand from on high was revealed Monday.

Speaking with Laura Ingraham on her nationally syndicated radio show, Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel issued a strong warning to Arizona Senator Jeff Flake.

McDaniel reminded listeners that three Republican senators who didn’t support Donald Trump during his victorious presidential campaign, lost their own races. Addressing the negativity Jeff Flake has continually lobbed at President Trump, she said the defeats suffered by  vocal opponents, Mark Kirk (Illinois), Kelly Ayotte (New Hampshire), and Joe Heck (Nevada), should serve as a “cautionary tale” to Jeff Flake, who already has the lowest approval rating of anyone in the 100-member U.S. Senate.

Flake’s newly released 140-page anti-Trump pamphlet passing itself off as a book, with a title directly lifted from Barry Goldwater’s 1960 transformative “Conscience of a Conservative.,” will not endear Flake to conservatives as he faces reelection in 2018. The book like its author is hypercritical of the Republican President. Among the other Republicans he skewers is former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. In an outrageous  ‘pot calling the kettle black’ scenario, peacock Flake refers to Newt Gingrich as a “character with extraordinary talents for self-promotion” Flake, who adds blond streaks to his hair, grins inappropriately to appear amiable and has sent out shirtless photos of himself, knows a thing or two about self-promotion.

McDaniel said the RNC usually stayed out of primaries but under the party’s bylaws could intervene if a number of RNC committee members agreed it was necessary.

“They need to have another candidate that they supported and the three RNC members that have to agree on that other candidate for rule 11 to apply, but it is in their bylaws,” McDaniel said. “It’s just interesting from a party standpoint, we do have governance. We have 168 members that they make those decisions. Sometimes you get in the nitty gritty, but I will say if you look at 2016, the senators that did not support the President, and let’s look at Joe Heck and Kelly Ayotte, they fell short in those Senate races, so there is a cautionary tale there because voters want you to support the President in his agenda.”

Approaching 2018, Arizonans are not land-locked. We are fortunate to have conservative Dr. Kelli Ward, who is challenging Flake. Take time to read her impressive bio and acquaint yourself with the principles on which she’s running.  Then send her a donation. Unlike Flake who continues to beg for campaign contributions, she’s not sitting on $millions in special interest and lobbyist cash.


Prepping for Meghan? Would Gov. Ducey actually do it?

July 21, 2017

On the heels of the disclosure that Arizona Sen. John McCain is battling brain cancer, comes a barrage of Meghan McCain image polishing in the local newspaper.

Thursday’s front page features a massive photo of the nearly 81-year-old senator with a report on the “aggressive, tough to treat” malignancy. It also includes this tweet from daughter Meghan, in which she says of her father, “….like any daughter, I cannot and do not want to be in a world without him.”

Page 7 carries a full page report, headlined,: “Meghan McCain: He is the toughest person I know.”  But the editorial is what was the attention grabber, the hard copy version is headlined, “Meghan McCain emerges with poise and eloquence.”  It would be difficult for Arizonans to equate this description  with the coarse, tattooed, motor mouth who complained that her father’s presidential campaign ruined her sex life, calling his failed effort a “libido killer” and even throwing in a slam to her much classier mother. The editorial, referring to John McCain as “one of the most influential leaders of our time,” was a rehash of his legendary heroism, disputed (video) by those who were imprisoned with him in Vietnam and members of congress who questioned his permanently shutting down access to POW and MIA records.

The online version of the editorial is even more blatant, “Our View: John McCain’s legacy is in good hands.” Sounding more appropriate for an obituary, this creepy praise came as John McCain is still among us.

Despite being bewildering it’s clear the Arizona Republic is pushing for Gov. Doug Ducey to appoint the marginal Ms. McCain to fill the senate seat occupied by her father. Ironically, it wouldn’t be much of a push, since the governor and senator have a longstanding connection dating to the  early 1980s when Ducey moved to Arizona to attend Arizona State University, and began working at Hensley& Co., the Anheuser-Busch distributor owned by Cindy McCain.

None of his 6 other children (2008) rate this syrupy coverage or even a mention.

Meghan McCain’s Republican credentials have always been suspect. A social liberal, she became a Republican as a Father’s Day surprise, in a display of “commitment” to her Dad. It’s worth noting that at the time, he was the GOP nominee for the U.S. Presidency. Like her father, Meghan refused to vote for Republican nominee, now President Donald Trump.

Even plagued with serious health problems, John McCain continued to lash out at President Trump, who, joined by First Lady Melania, sent him warm wishes after hearing of the serious diagnosis.

Who actually colluded with Russia? Where was the coverage?

June 30, 2017

Obama and McCain got passes for their schemes

Now that it’s been revealed that the relentless CNN contrivances posing as reports regarding President Trump colluding with Russia were all ratings and revenue driven schemes promoted by the network’s president Jeff Zucker, let’s do a quick review of two actual collusions that never merited investigation:

Here is then-President Barack Obama caught on an open mic during a meeting in South Korea, assuring Russia’s then-President Dmitry Medvedev that after his reelection he would have “more “flexibility.”  Medvedev is currently the Prime Minister of Russia. This merited silence from the Obama worshiping press.

Or how about John McCain’s notorious “dossier” that he was all too happy to hand carry to then-FBI director James Comey, supposedly implicating newly elected President Trump in a compromising Russian scandal? The U.K.‘s Daily Mail outs McCain as a virulent enemy of Donald Trump. 

Rebublicrats McCain and Jeff  Flake refused to support the Republican nominee during the 2016 presidential election. Both of Arizona’s U.S. Senators aided liberal Hillary Clinton, who was actually scandal plagued.

As we now know, that “dossier” was, as Van Jones would say, “a real nothing burger.”


Pres. Trump is right: Fake News abounds — CNN is proof & UPDATES

June 28, 2017

American Pravda: Blatant lies driven by ratings, increased revenue and desire to take down President Donald Trump

CNN, a committed anti-Trump network has been exposed by James O’Keefe of Project Veritas. Three network employees were “urged to resign” after they revealed to O’Keefe that the Russian / Trump linkage was a fabrication. “Mostly Bullsh*t,” they called it.

The CNN employees caught on tape admit the negativity aimed at Trump — specifically the Russian narrative — is good for business, even though there is no proof of its veracity. After the big reveal of CNN’s overt role in the contrivances, the network has retracted the “reports.”  Other videos are due to be released by Project Veritas. We will add them with an ‘UPDATE” headline tag to this post as they become available.

The New York Post reports additional information regarding CNN.

“Russian collusion,” liberal hypocrisy and of course, McCain

May 17, 2017

As the left-wing media relentlessly accuse President Donald Trump of collusion with the Russians — a charge he and his key staff present at the meeting,* deny — we bring you the hot mic exchange picked up between then-President Barack Obama and outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

This video evidence of actual collusion in March 2012 somehow missed getting the same negative scrutiny from the Obama-adoring press. Read the full text in The Weekly Standard.

Fast forward to the new Trump administration, and the media — still unable to fathom that Hillary Clinton lost — are salivating at the preposterous thought of impeachment.  Arizona’s embarrassment and failed presidential candidate John McCain, who made it clear he was not voting for Donald Trump as the GOP presidential nominee now ridiculously declares, “Trump’s scandals have now reached Watergate proportions.”

McCain should know a thing or two about scandals, after having been deeply entangled in the notorious Keating Five career-destroying savings and loan scandal. Through his contacts, he was able to slickly maneuver his survival while others weren’t so fortunate. Financier Charles Keating, Jr., with the help of five U.S. Senators, bilked investors, and spent time in prison after the $150 billion collapse of the S & L industry in the 1980s.

*Rex Tillerson, Secretary of State; H.R. McMaster, National Security Adviser; and Dina Powell, Deputy National Security Adviser were present at the meeting.
