McCain quandary: Court Latino voters or support Trump?

May 24, 2016

McCain goes all out for Hispanics, will blame loss on Trump

TPM  DC examines three GOP U.S. Senate races — John McCain’s among them — and their schizophrenic courting of Hispanic voters while attempting to keep Donald Trump supporters on board their campaigns.  It’s a dicey road for the candidates from Arizona, Florida and Nevada.

McCain, so intensely unpopular both nationally and with Arizona’s grassroots conservative base, that he was censured by elected state delegates at the Statutory Republican Party Meeting — later the object of his retaliatory attempts to purge them by using an out-of-state Obama donor — is now fighting for his political life.  His latest tactic is to blame Donald Trump for his woes, (audio obtained by Politico) rather than admit that he is reviled by Republicans who view him with contempt.

John McCain, who has courted the racist LaRaza (“The Race”) and had “Mexico First” Juan Hernandez as an integral part of his failed presidential bid, currently has a Hispanic outreach team, Unidos Con McCain, in place to garner the votes of those who are more concerned with the continued flow of illegals than national security. He announced three AZ Hispanic leaders would co-chair the committee and hired a local Telemundo reporter to serve as his Hispanic outreach director. The team has been traveling Arizona, organizing bilingual door knocking activities and setting up Spanish-speaking phone banking. English-speaking American taxpayers get the back of McCain’s gnarled hand.

The ever-opportunistic Jason Rose, who the leftist TPM claims “ran” JD Hayworth’s 2010 Primary challenge to McCain, now does a “complete 180,” explaining how McCain has been effective in reaching out to the Latino Community in his desperate attempt at re-election this year.

Actually Rose has spent an entire PR career making a bee-line for money, no matter the source or the ideological bent. When Hayworth discovered Rose’s affiliation with Open Borders efforts in Texas, not to mention his sense of the Flack’s inability to employ any sense of discretion, the former Congressman chose others to operate his senate campaign. Rose promptly went on a “Twitter rant,” demeaning Hayworth’s efforts.

Then, Rose and his lawyer wife, Jordan, fell over themselves getting back into the good graces of John McCain — including making donations to the very campaign Rose at one point hoped to defeat.

The 80-year-old running for another 6-year senate term is as opportunistic and devoid of ethical encumbrances as the PR operative, so it’s not surprising that Rose has found a role vouching for the very senior senator’s “virtue” and his appeals for “diversity.”

But that “diversity” is instead “divisiveness.” It has divided the GOP; it has sidetracked efforts to secure the border; it has ignored the national security imperative of ending illegal immigration.

McCain hopes to con Arizonans one last time — and Rose looks for his next thirty pieces of silver. Quite a team.


Leftist AZ newspaper works to purge elected Republicans

May 23, 2016

Routinely calls on elected Republicans to resign

The newspaper of record in the state of Arizona is auditioning for a new gig as its readership is dwindling to non-existence.  The remaining crew — few can legitimately be called journalists — have found their niche in despotism.

Its latest trick is an attempt to seize power by demanding office holders not of their liking step down.  The newspaper has even advocated for appointment rather than elections to political posts.

The folks at the newspaper recoil from Republican voters having their say, opting instead for open primaries, where the top two vote getters — which they hope are both Democrats — vie against one another.  Recently columnist Robert Robb pondered why the state treasurer was an elective office. Maricopa Country Sheriff Joe Arpaio has long been in their stand-down sights, marginalized at every turn. Longtime Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell “must resign” due to long lines on Election Day. Secretary of State Michele Reagan is ridiculed as “inept” by left-wing  partisan E.J. Montini. His fellow traveler, columnist Laurie Roberts mocked Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich for not postponing the May 17 election due to a snafu with the publicity pamphlets getting mailed out in a timely manner. The state legislature is continually accused of nefarious schemes. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas has been the subject of ongoing insidious insults and a failed recall attempt.

The list of those unworthy of staying in office is long and decidedly partisan, since the elected officers they love to hate are invariably Republicans — most often conservatives.

An editorial preceding Arizona’s March 22, 2016 presidential preference primary bared the newspaper‘s agenda clearly with the headline urging voters to “Reject Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. Vote John Kasich instead.” Trump and Cruz are anti-GOP establishment.  Kasich would be better suited running as a Democrat. The skewed view was sounded rejected by voters who gave the majority — 47% — to Trump.

Film critic Bill Goodykoontz was pulled in on the double duty task to write, “Covering Trump’s lies no simple task.”  Neither subtlety nor honesty rank as top considerations at the unabashedly liberal Arizona Republic.

Here are the facts: Arizona holds the distinction of having Republican majorities in both the state House and Senate. The Senate President and Speaker of the House are Republicans. The Governor is a Republican, as is the Secretary of State, Attorney General, Treasurer, Superintendent of Public Instruction, the state Mine Inspector and the five members of the Corporation Commission. Arizona has nine congressional districts, with Republicans holding five of the seats and those misappropriating the GOP brand holding the two U.S. Senate seats.

Maricopa County, which includes the capitol of Phoenix and numerous other cities and towns, has Republicans holding 4 of the 5 Board of Supervisor posts, a Republican Sheriff, County Attorney, Treasurer, Assessor, Recorder, Clerk of the Superior Court and County School Superintendent.

This is untenable to the left and they strive to change it on a daily basis.


Pertinent info missing in reporting death of PPD officer

May 21, 2016

PPD_Officer_David_Glasser

It’s become routine in reporting homicides.  Names of suspects are withheld pending what…? Notification of the victim’s relatives has taken place. Release of the location where the crime occurred is not the problem. In the case of the murder of a Phoenix police officer this past week, most of the relevant data regarding the victim’s age, assignment, family left behind to mourn the tragic loss has been made available. Funeral arrangements and memorials honoring the life of the exemplary public servant have been publicized.  The Phoenix Law Enforcement Association has announced plans for a benefit cookout to aid the officer’s family. PLEA Charities is also accepting donations. Flags are flying at half-staff at the direction of the governor.

Again, the missing component is the name of the perpetrator. It took an additional day to find out that Israel Santos-Banos, 19, was the craven shooter who was in turn shot and killed by responding officers at the residence in the 7700 block of South 48th Lane.

The appalling facts: Phoenix Police Officer David Glasser, 35, a husband and father of two young children and a 12-year department veteran was gunned down mid-afternoon responding to a call of a burglary in progress from the father of the cold blooded killer, reporting his son had stolen his guns. Officer Glasser and five other officers dutifully responded to the scene.  That’s what they do. David Glasser’s life was cut far too short in the driveway of the residence by a cowardly punk.

Also missing is the status of 19-year-old murderer, Israel Santos-Banos. If we’re waiting for the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) to tell us if he was an illegal alien or an anchor baby, the wait may be a long one.

Maybe forever.

Ex State Rep. Mark DeSimone charged with murder

May 18, 2016

According to a recent account of Mark DeSimone’s travails in the Juneau Empire News, the domestic violence charge that led the first-term Democrat to resign from the Arizona State Legislature in 2008, wasn’t the worst of it.

Now in Alaska, DeSimone has been charged with multiple counts of murder (court documents under link) resulting from a shooting at an Alaskan hunting lodge. KTOO Public Media reports the details.

KHNS Radio describes Excursion Inlet where the homicide took place as a remote and secluded community with a year-round population of less than a dozen residents.


Dr. Kelli Ward vs. McCain on life issues

May 15, 2016

Abortion is not an “unpleasant procedure,” for the baby, Sen. McCain. It’s death.

Nate Madden, writing for Conservative Review exposes John McCain’s squishy position on the fundamental matter of life in his commentary, “McCain Challenger Hits Back at Pro-Life Group for Endorsing Incumbent.”

Dr. Kelli Ward, a conservative former two-term state senator, mother and physician — who is adamantly pro-life — is challenging the decades-long incumbent McCain, running for another 6-year term at age 80. Ward rightly questions the National Right to Life endorsement given to McCain despite his dubious record.

In 2010 Seeing Red AZ posted, “McCain refuses to answer pro-life questionnaire.” In 2007, John McCain called for returning to a Republican Party Platform which did not include the pro-life plank.  

Listen closely as McCain, summoning up the weakest of adjectives to describe the gruesome death of a pre-born human baby, refers to abortion an “unpleasant procedure.”

 “But we all know, and it’s obvious, that if we repeal Roe v. Wade tomorrow, thousands of young American women will be performing illegal and dangerous operations. I want us to be a party of inclusion. I think that we can all be members of the Republican Party whether we are pro-choice or pro-life because we share the same goal, and that is the elimination of abortion, because it’s an unpleasant and terrible procedure. We think, I think, that we must go back to the Platform of 1980 and 1984 and we include people who have this specific disagreement who share our same goals.”

 Do these equivocating words sound like those of a candidate who is deserving of the National Right to Life endorsement? Give NRTL a call and ask them what they were thinking.

This is Dr. Kelli Ward. It’s time for a change. 

 


Hillary’s words bring her down in West Virginia

May 10, 2016

To no one’s surprise, Bernie Sanders has won the West Virginia Democrat primary. Sanders’ victory comes one week after he prevailed over Hillary Clinton in Indiana’s Democrat primary. The New York Times has the latest numbers.

Republican Donald Trump easily took West Virginia.

Sanders benefited from Clinton’s haughty dismissal of coal miners when speaking about the coal industry in mining-heavy West Virginia. Clinton was unable to get out of the hole she dug herself  during a CNN sponsored town hall in March where she boasted, “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”

Watch as this coal miner confronts Hillary and listen to her lies, which she now characterizes as a “misstatement.”

 


SOS Kerry affirms left’s view: USA is inconsequential

May 8, 2016

National borders are meaningless, we must prepare for “borderless world”

Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry confirms the left’s position that American sovereignty is inconsequential in the commencement address he gave  at  Boston’s Northeastern University — an institution which emphasizes globalism.

“The future demands from us something more than a nostalgia for some rose-tinted version of the past that did not really exist in any case,” Kerry told the graduates. “You’re about to graduate into a complex and borderless world.”

Kerry also used the occasion of the school’s 114th commencement  to hammer Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump without mentioning him by name, but honing in on Trump’s stated plan to build a wall along the U.S./Mexico border:

“So I think that everything that we’ve lived and learn tells us that we will never come out on top if we accept advice from sound-bite salesmen and carnival barkers who pretend the most powerful country on Earth can remain great by looking inward. And hiding behind walls at a time that technology has made that impossible to do and unwise to even attempt.”

Kerry is known for marrying heiresses but speaking foolishly, as evidenced by these examples. provided by Red Eye. He will also be remembered for his association with Jane Fonda and his deceitful congressional testimony regarding American military personnel serving in Vietnam.

John Kerry: the ultimate  self-promoting liberal hack.
