Team McCain reportedly engaging in ballot harvesting

August 24, 2016

The corrupt practice of ‘ballot harvesting — collecting voted or unvoted ballots which are then filled out by others who deliver boxes of them to polling places has been exposed to such an extent that the Arizona legislature passed HB 2023 making the practice a Class 6 Felony. It was signed into law by Gov. Ducey in early March. The fraudulent action, utilized in minority neighborhoods most often by Hispanic advocacy groups, affects us all since it undercuts the integrity that each and every citizen has a right to expect from our election process.

Despite the law, the Arizona Daily Independent reports that John McCain’s team is also in on the act.  As a U.S. Senator since before many of his constituents were even born, the 80-year-old McCain, now running — scared  — for a sixth 6-year term, has voted on laws that affect the lives of Americans across the entire United States  He should know better than to authorize young, paid recruits working for him engage in such deceptive practices.

To skirt the law, Hispanic voter advocacy groups are now collecting people rather than ballots, renting vans to transport voters to the polls. They are recruiting high school students as drivers, and have announced they plan to deliver 50,000 people to the polls on Aug. 30. Our best advice is to stay off the roads in the areas where these young drivers with vans full of ballot clutching passengers are being madly shuttled back and forth. Are the drivers insured? Are they getting extra credit for skipping class to engage in this “civic duty“? Are the rental agencies aware of the fact that numerous drivers, insured or not, will be driving the vehicles?

McCain’s recruits are less obvious. McCain is being challenged by Dr. Kelli Ward, a vibrant former two-term state senator and family practice physician who has the savvy to work on restructuring the nightmare known as Obamacare. Unsavory out-of-state dark money PACs hustling for McCain in a desperate attempt to keep him around to do their bidding have bizarrely mischaracterized her as helping ISIS terrorists, though votes cast in the state legislature have nothing to do with issues of national security. Those take place in Washington D.C. where McCain has spent decades.

Her husbandDr. Michael Wardan Air Force Colonel, who has served voluntary tours of duty in global hot spots, is the Arizona State Flight Surgeon. The couple has three children.

AZ Republic peddles the fraud of moral relativism

August 22, 2016

In what is clearly not a coincidence, the Arizona Republic runs two articles a single day apart. Each deals with faith.  Article One, titled, “The Many Faces of One Faith,“ is three pages in length. The faith in question is Islam. The oversized quote accompanying the report is attributed to Hani Rahal, identified as Leader of Al-Mahdi Benevolent Foundation. His quote? “Many Americans are afraid of the unknown, they don’t know what Islam is.”

In fact, in recent years Americans have come to know what certain adherents of Islam tell us and show us it is.  No rational observer believes all Muslims follow such beliefs, though this National Review report, Obama’s Bad Math on Islamic Terrorism, is rife with disturbing polling data and specifics that give rise to suspicions. It also makes the point that Muslims are no more fundamentally bad than Christians or Jews. But it is not true, as Barack Obama has said, “99.9 percent of Muslims” reject Islamic terrorism. Obama’s 99.9 percent figure is demonstrably false. Pew Research has polled the issue extensively. In surveys of the Muslim populations of nine majority-Muslim countries, an average of 57 percent have an unfavorable view of al-Qaeda, not 99.9 percent. Thirteen percent have a favorable view of al-Qaeda, not 0.1 percent. 

Article Two in the Sunday edition uses an almost 90-year-old Holocaust survivor to make the point that she was hated merely for who she was. The horrors she endured have no relationship to mainstream American Muslims, though that is the point attempting to be made. The Nazis rounded up 6-million Jews and millions of others and sent them to death camps where they were starved and subjected to unspeakable atrocities, then gassed or put into ovens. American Muslims, described as being about 70 percent Democrat, live ordinary lives here. There are no parallels to 1930’s and 40’s Europe.

The elderly Holocaust victim was led down the Primrose Path by columnist Karina Bland, who specializes in midlife travails and was clearly over her head in making this moral equivalency on behalf of introducing individual Valley Muslims and their faith.

The differences are stark. European Jews did not commit heinous crimes in the name of God. They did not behead, bomb, drive massive trucks through crowds engaged in outdoor festivities with their children. They did not butcher or strap on suicide vests to randomly slaughter wedding attendees, shoppers or diners. They did not commandeer commercial airliners and fly them into skyscrapers. They did not hand out candy to their children as they celebrated wholesale slaughters, accompanied by joyful shouts of “Allahu Akbar!” which translates to “Allah is greater!”  — meaning Allah Is Greater Than Your God or Government. Robert Spencer of “Jihad Watch” provides a more complete explanation.

Islam is fundamentally different than the religions of Christianity or Judaism. Islam, the fastest growing worldwide, demands strict adherence to its precepts, which are often incompatible with our Constitutionally granted freedoms, since it seeks dominance. Tom Trinko at “American Thinker” provides an in-depth analysis in his column, Islam: Not Just a ReligionFor the Arizona Republic to use an elderly victim to try to convince us otherwise is reprehensible but understandable, as Obama opens America’s  floodgates to hundreds of thousands of unable to be vetted Muslim “refugees.”


Politically motivated Judge refers Sheriff Arpaio, aides for prosecution?

August 21, 2016

Seemingly vendetta-based action timed to coincide with election

Unable to contain their elation, the crew at the Arizona Republic reported on Saturday with bared teeth and an all cap, declaration of war-sized headline, “CRIMINAL CONTEMPT.” The sense is the exact model of the coverage, including the 7 x 7 inch unflattering photo of Sheriff Joe Arpaio was on ice waiting for the judge’s order. They were showing irritation on May 31, when the newspaper’s testy report was titled, “No ruling yet on criminal charges for Arpaio.”

That moment came on Friday when U.S. District Court Judge G. Murray Snow haughtily wrote:”Criminal contempt serves to vindicate the Court’s authority by punishing the intentional disregard for that authority.” 

 Judge Snow was appointed to the federal bench on the recommendation of Sens. John McCain and Jon Kyl, He was given the fast-track, green light by Democrat Sen. Harry Reid, who announced “all Senators should be aware that this vote will occur very quickly…” Snow was nominated to the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona by President George W. Bush, but without a recorded confirmation vote. This unanimous consent agreement sufficed. Federal judges do not stand for either election or retention. They hold their positions until they decide to retire or are unable to fulfill the duties.

The 32-page Criminal Contempt Order signed Aug. 18, 2016 by Judge G. Murray Snow can be read here. Being forwarded to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for possible criminal contempt charges are Sheriff  Joe Arpaio, his Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan, the MCSO’s former Professional Standards Bureau Captain Steve Bailey, and Arpaio’s former attorney Michele Iafrate.

In May 2015, Breitbart reported on incendiary comments alleged to have been made by Judge Snow’s wife to a friend and overheard in a Valley restaurant. The allegations which were never denied by either the judge or his wife, should have caused Judge Snow to recuse himself from this case. He did not. A motion for recusal was filed, Snow remained on the case.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been the focus of professional agitators and race-baiters who have spent years filing claims against him and loudly protesting outside his office, beating drums, screaming and holding derogatory signs — as they accuse him of racial profiling, a charge he has steadfastly denied. He has complied with previous judicial orders intended to rein in control of the office he  has repeatedly been elected to lead. This contempt charge appears suspiciously timed to coincide with the upcoming election.

Vote for Sheriff Arpaio, a dedicated, career lawman who has always done the job Maricopa County citizens have elected him to do.


AZ U.S. Senate race: Trusting McCain has been a fool’s errand

August 14, 2016

Dr. Kelli Ward and John McCain: A study in contrasts

Here, in his own words, is U.S. Sen. John McCain, the man allegedly representing the citizens of the state of Arizona for decades. He has used the influence of the senate to negatively affect all Americans as he colludes with the most liberal Democrats as a “maverick.” Listen as he grandly proclaims,  “I know ISIS intimately, I’ve met them and I talk to them all the time.”

Dr. Kelli Ward, a conservative former two-term state senator and family practice physician challenging John McCain, has a decidedly different message. After enduring flagrant lies broadcast about her by a McCain aligned PAC, she boldly fights back, unequivocally making the case that it is McCain who is  “directly responsible” for the rise of ISIS.

Her tagline,“ Arizona needs a senator who will represent Arizona — not ISIS,” states the facts clearly. We’ve been hoodwinked by the very senior senator who, at age 80, is running for yet another 6-year term. As he fights for his political life, he walks a very complex path. McCain needs the Trump supporters, but they are fed up with the entrenched establishment and support Dr. Kelli Ward.

MCSO Chief responds to AZ Republic’s relentless attacks on Sheriff Arpaio

August 10, 2016

Beneath the device of a sarcastic headline (not included here), the Arizona Republic provides “My Turn” space for Jerry Sheridan, chief deputy of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office to respond to the incessant assaults on the integrity of career law enforcement officer and popular Sheriff, Joe Arpaio. Sheridan, a 38-year veteran of the office, wrote the following in response to a recent editorial endorsing a newly minted Republican also ran.

Your recent editorial endorsing Dan Saban for sheriff of Maricopa County (“Sack Sheriff Joe Arpaio — and vote Dan Saban instead, July 31) was sad, but not surprising. As is typical, it read more like a liberal blog than a serious opinion from our state’s largest newspaper.

As chief deputy, I am deeply offended that The Republic would impugn the reputations of so many dedicated and faithful law-enforcement officers that make up the MCSO by taking cheap shots at their sheriff who has dedicated his life to public service.

The editorial board at The Arizona Republic knows full well that Saban does not stand a chance in this primary campaign, and upon defeat will immediately run to Paul Penzone’s side to endorse him just as he did four years ago.

In the general election, The Republic will undoubtedly endorse our opponent, which means The Republic is willing to sacrifice any shred of integrity it has left to support both of these candidates. This, in contrast to Sheriff Arpaio, who not only has more experience than any other candidate but has successfully led this office and this organization of more than 3,400 employees for more than 23 years.

There is no mention of Sheriff Arpaio’s successful programs, saving taxpayer money by creating and operating Tent City or the millions of dollars the sheriff returns to taxpayers each year by operating under budget. Also curiously absent is the mention of the support he has from the 17,000 men and women in Arizona law enforcement who have endorsed his campaign for re-election. As a matter of fact, the areas the MCSO patrols are the safest in the Valley.

The Republic abandoned any sense of objectivity regarding Sheriff Arpaio a long time ago. Any real “extensive reporting” by The Republic would show that the MCSO, the second largest law-enforcement organization in Arizona which also runs the country’s third largest jail system, is a world-class operation that other agencies envy.

The Arizona Republic should be ashamed for printing this garbage, but sadly, your readers know this is only just the beginning.

The Republic endorsed problem-plagued and opportunistic party switcher Dan Saban. During his last attempt at running for sheriff, Saban did so as  a Democrat in 2008. Arpaio trounced him 55.2% – 42.2%.

After years of nearly daily attacks on Sheriff Arpaio, employing  biased reporting, vicious cartoons, skewed editorials and leftist columnists who don’t let facts get in the way of their agenda, allotting his chief deputy a constricted opportunity to reply isn’t evenhanded. It’s the newspaper’s  typical, self-serving and condescending move, enabling the editorial board to point to Sheridan’s defense as  evidence of fairness. It is not.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a solid conservative, has been treated miserably for doing the job he’s been repeatedly elected to do.  He deserves our support again. 

 


John McCain, Vietnam, 1969: audio bombshell

August 6, 2016

TRUNEWS, a non-profit Christian digital news source, has released what is referred to as a “bombshell audio recording.” Writing that the “1969 North Vietnamese radio broadcast has never been heard in the United States of America,” the news site says, “there has never been any knowledge that such a recording existed.”

The article and script are headlined as “John McCain’s 1969 “Tokyo Rose” propaganda recording released.” It was broadcast on North Vietnamese radio. The audio recording was reported to have been found in a misplaced file in the National Archives in Washington, D.C. The broadcast was recorded by the Foreign Broadcast Information Service, a branch of the CIA that monitored international shortwave and foreign radio broadcasts.

Throughout his decades in Washington, McCain has worked to suppress information about POWs and discredit those seeking answers, as reported by WND in McCain and the POW cover-up, written by Pulitzer Prize winning author Sydney H. Schanberg. 

John McCain has done everything in his power to block the release of information on American Vietnam era MIAs as evident in this shocking video by Vietnam Veterans Against McCain. It features veterans, U.S. Congressmen and knowledgeable staff.

This equally stunning video shows John McCain stomping out of a congressional hearing after insulting Delores Alfond, chair of the National Alliance of Families, who dedicated her life to seeking information after her brother was shot down over North Vietnam. McCain intentionally made sure all information was classified and made unavailable.

The “why?” has been answered by TRUNEWS.


DNC Chair resigns, chaos reigns prior to Dem convention

July 25, 2016

Democrats plagued by email scandals

Following the nomination of Republican Donald Trump at the RNC last week, Democrats are in a state of turmoil. On the eve of their national convention, party chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced she would resign her post later this week, amid angry charges of corruption and cronyism leveled at her by Bernie Sander’s supporters, who are threatening to disrupt the anointing of Hillary Clinton. Liberal hopes of a smooth coronation, transitioning Obama’s third term, are looking increasingly bleak.

The outgoing chairman was booed and jeered this morning at a pre-convention breakfast.

Wikileaks publication of 20,000 DNC emails over the weekend exposing the party apparatus’ decided skew favoring Hillary, while actually undermining Bernie Sanders’ campaign, made it immediately clear that Wasserman Schultz’s tenure was in peril. Sanders supporters, expecting neutrality from the DNC, are enraged and protesting.

In a preposterous showing of hypocrisy, the same Democrats who have bashed Trump’s vow to build a wall along our southern border have erected what they hope to be an impenetrable four-mile long, 8-foot tall fence around the Philadelphia convention center. Photos courtesy of The American Mirror.

The left-wing media repeatedly referred to the Republican convention as “dark.” What descriptive term will they use to describe the chaos amid the breaking scandals and disarray at the DNC?
