Dems endorse boycotting businesses linked to Trump donors

September 10, 2019

We’re all aware of the Dem endorsed boorish efforts to harass and intimidate members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet, family and GOP members of congress who support the president. Surrounding their tables in restaurants and showing up on their front lawns chanting threats and obscenities apparently isn’t enough to satisfy the leftist lunatics.

Now there’s a new scheme underway among radical Democrats. They are encouraging the boycotts of a vast array of companies whose owners, founders, chairmen, subsidiaries and affiliates — including their family members — contributed to President Trump’s reelection campaign or held fundraisers on his behalf.  

At the federal level, the organizations themselves did not donate, as they are prohibited by law from doing so. The “offenders” exercising their First Amendment rights of expression are individual, law-abiding, American citizens.

Seeing Red AZ is not linking to the list, although we are encouraged that American business leaders support the president who has made the economy brighter than it’s been for years. He has added over 4 million jobs, reduced taxes and reined in government regulations that hamper business. Minority unemployment is at record lows.

This is a one-way street traveled by vulgar extremists who increasingly populate the Democrat party. Republican leaders never called for boycotts of Hollywood elite George Clooney, Gwyneth Paltrow, Spike Lee and others who held $35,000 admission price fundraisers for Barack Obama in their luxury homes. If you’re a movie goer, you also contributed, as you can see on this list. Never lose sight of the fact that the entertainment industry is a left-wing propaganda machine and whether overtly or subtly, you are its target.

Robert Branch: Give it a rest

September 3, 2019

Robert Branch, still smarting over his 2018 primary election defeat for Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction, has a new target for his wrath.

Claiming conservative credentials, Branch, an adjunct professor who teaches information technology at GCU, has an odd way of showing his cohesiveness as we approach the crucial 2020 election cycle. He is taking on Republican State Chairman Dr. Kelli Ward.

The back story to this absurdity is he was pushing unknown candidate Doyel Shamley in the three-way race for the GOP leadership position at the January 2019 statutory meeting attended by 1,236 elected state committeemen. Establishment backed incumbent Jonathan Lines was soundly trounced by conservative Ward. Branch’s candidate garnered only 65 votes.

Though he claims to be on-board the Trump train, he has an odd way of showing it. 

Currently he is calling for the “immediate resignation” of GOP Chairman Kelli Ward based on the political consulting company, Atlas Alliance, Drs. Kelli and Michael Ward formed prior to her election as AZ GOP chair. The firm does not take clients who are in inter-party contested races. Conservative Ward previously served two terms in the Arizona Senate.

Fantasizing about another, as yet unnamed election — he also lost a CD 3 congressional race in 2010 — Branch has a generic, though self-aggrandizing site up and running. It’s dated 2019.

It wouldn’t be much of a leap to conclude Robert Branch is the candidate he thinks would make a stellar replacement for Dr. Kelli Ward. Dream on, Robert. The rest of us have work to do. The 2020 election will be momentous. Put your ego away, roll up your sleeves and join the team.


News report indicative of nothing but anti-Trump bias

August 25, 2019

As avid news followers and supporters of President Trump, this zinger of a headline topping an article that appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle was nothing short of attention-grabbing:

Reported Trump fan convicted in California of voter fraud, identity theft.”

The bizarre contrivance is proof positive that fake news is alive and well. In reading the report, it’s clear that it had nothing to do with the President of the United States. Seven words in the final sentence were given prominence to contort the report of a criminal illegal alien — slickly mischaracterized as an “undocumented resident” — charged with identity theft and voter fraud.

Student intern Alejandro Serrano, posing as a reporter, also wrote that charged perpetrator Gustavo Araujo Lerma was “convicted by a federal grand jury.”

Alejandro, who is doing a stint at the SF Chronicle, following a 10-week summer internship at the Chicago Tribune, needs a remedial course in basic legal proceedings if this is to be his beat. A grand jury has no power to convict anyone of a crime. After hearing evidence presented by prosecutors they can only issue an indictment to charge an individual with a crime. Trials do not take place before a grand jury.

And the illegal charged with the crimes? Alejandro Serrano writes, “according to one report, Lerma testified he was a fan of President Trump.”

According to the obviously leftist novice Alejandro, that sounds like an even more egregious crime than identify theft and voter fraud.

SF Gate, the online sister site of the Chronicle provided this editorial insight,The decline of news,” back in 2007. “The situation at the Chronicle has only worsened in the intervening years, resulting in editor-less interns inadequately filling the positions of seasoned journalists. Neil Henry wrote: “Reportedly losing an estimated $1 million a week, the paper’s owner, the Hearst Corp., concluded it had no recourse but to trim costs by laying off reporters, editors and other skilled professionals, or offering buyouts to the most seasoned journalists in order to induce them to leave. The cuts reportedly will amount to a quarter of The Chronicle’s editorial staff.”

Henry’s editorial is worth your time. The evaluation mirrors the slashing of jobs resulting in of these dire circumstances at the recently sold Arizona Republic.


Joe Biden’s wife takes cue from McCain’s mother

August 21, 2019

Jill Biden advises Dems to “swallow a little bit,” not to look for the best candidate, but one who can “beat Trump”

John McCain was a distinctly unpopular presidential candidate in both 2000 and 2008. Like Bob Dole, who also lost his bid in 1996, the longtime senators — misreading the Republican base — considered the presidency their “due.”

In 2008, John’s mother, Roberta McCain, became known for her advice to reticent voters, essentially recommending, “Hold your nose and vote for Johnny.”

Fast forward to 2019. Speaking of her gaffe-prone husband, perennial presidential candidate Joe Biden, Jill Biden gave a bizarre reason for supporting him in the crowded Democrat primary election field. Biden unsuccessfully sought the presidency in 1988 and 2008.

“I know that not all of you are committed to my husband, and I respect that. But I want you to think about your candidate and who’s going to win this race.”

Dispensing an unusual bit of candor, Jill Biden also said that Democrats’ goals should not be to elect the best person for president, but to defeat Trump.

“My goal is to beat Donald Trump,” Mrs. Biden said. “We have to have someone who can beat him. So if you look at the polls, if you look at Joe with his record with independents…your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, health care than Joe is. But you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election. And maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘OK, I personally like so-and-so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.”


Anti-Trump press gears up for 2020 election

August 17, 2019

Media afflicted by Trump Derangement Syndrome

Editor & Publisher provides an inside look at how the press intends to cover the 2020 Presidential election.

The pathetic 2019 quarterbacking report is filled with recriminations over not giving enough significance to Donald Trump’s emergence on the political scene and the press’ assumptions that he was nothing more than an annoying gnat on the backside of the anointed donkey-rider Hillary Clinton.

Absent is the fact that American citizens were energized by his MAGA message and fed up with scandal-plagued Hillary, who arrogantly dismissed us as a “basket of deplorables.” The equally arrogant press’ most colossal blunder was misreading the electorate, whom they regarded as easily duped by their incessant left-wing coverage.

Realizations of the massive awakening across America was a pill too difficult to swallow. Voters heard a compelling message from the political novice New York businessman. There was an unmistakable authentic clarity to his message.  Hillary’s fate was sealed as reports trickled out of her involvement in the destruction of thousands of emails when they were under congressional subpoena and preservation orders. A practiced charlatan, she blatantly lied about the attacks resulting in the deaths of four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador, at the embassy in Benghazi, Libya. Prior to the Presidential debate, her cohort Donna Brazile — a political strategist and former DNC chair — using her position as a CNN commentator, fed the questions in advance to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. These are merely tip-of-the-iceberg corruptions in which Hillary engaged.

Meanwhile Donald Trump was building a loyal base raising the issues that resonate with Americans from coast to coast. Since being elected he has gone to work fulfilling his promises and has overseen the lowest unemployment rates in decades. The economy is soaring and he’s nominated two justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and many others to the federal district benches.

Editor & Publisher erroneously concludes, “Disillusioned voters blamed the press for a failure to present Trump as a viable nominee, let alone as their likely future president. Some declared that journalists missed the story of the Trump voter entirely.”

The publication either doesn’t comprehend the enormity of President Trump’s energized base or chooses to ignore it. Despite the leftist press’ irrational excuses, and predictions to the contrary, Americans won  (video) and will again in 2020.


Associated Press out of the BDS anti-Israel closet

August 16, 2019

This deceptive Associated Press headline, “Israel bans entry to outspoken US congresswomen,” should have read, “Israel bans entry to virulently anti-Semitic US congresswomen.”  The intentionally misleading word parsing clearly displays the media’s skewed bent, which it no longer attempts to conceal.

Far-left freshmen Democrats Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN), both Muslim members of congress, support the Palestinian-led BDS movement which advocates boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israeli businesses, products, universities and cultural institutions.

National Review recently headlined its revealing report:Omar to Introduce Resolution Declaring Support for Anti-Israel BDS Movement.” On Thursday Omar ludicrously accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of imposing a “Muslim ban,” declaring, “It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government.”

Arizona Sen. Martha McSally, who prior to retiring from the Air Force as a full Colonel, was deployed in the Middle East and supports President Trump’s resolve on the issue.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said his country is “open to critics and criticism,” noted that Tlaib and Omar’s itinerary for the trip “revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy.”

Omar, who PJ Media reported engaged in a marriage with her own brother to perpetrate immigration and student loan fraud, irrationally stated, “Trump’s Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected members of Congress.”

The women, members of what has been described as the congressional “Squad,” routinely refer to the sole democracy in the Middle East in the most derogatory of terms, and, for good measure, condemn President Trump. Omitted from their anti-Semitic tirade is the inconvenient fact that since the formation of the state of Israel in 1948, there have been Arabic members of the Knesset, the legislative body similar to the U.S. Congress. They have been Muslim, Druze, and Christian.

The U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, endorsed the decision to ban Tlaib and Omar, saying Israel “has every right to protect its borders” against promoters of boycotts.


Aging small fry used against Bill Montgomery’s Supreme Court appt

August 13, 2019

There’s a new, albeit pathetic arrow, in the quiver of the leftist newspaper’s relentless campaign to scuttle Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery’s appointment to the Arizona Supreme Court. Since Montgomery made the short list, the partisan war against him has revved into high gear.

Gov. Doug Ducey has approximately 6 weeks to name the replacement to the seat of recently retired state Supreme Court Justice John Pelander.

Republican Montgomery was initially elected to lead the prosecutor’s office in the nation’s fourth most populous county in 2010, bringing a résumé of impressive credentials. A West Point graduate, decorated Gulf War veteran, former deputy county attorney and a professional prosecutor, he has dedicated his personal and professional life to serving others.

Though Montgomery’s credentials makes others pale in comparison, he has attracted a distinctly marginal detractor described in the newspaper’s Page One headline as a “son.” For a man in his 60s that’s more of a put-down than what he’s maliciously trying to serve to Montgomery. The “son” is the grandpa-aged child of former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. A RINO apple who didn’t fall far from his maternal tree — Sandra O’Connor reveled in being the swing vote frequently siding with the high court’s Democrats — Scott  thinks Montgomery is “too political” to be an effective Arizona Supreme Court Justice — an absurdity on it’s face.

Prior to Scott’s mother being appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, she also had a “political career.” Sandra O’Connor campaigned and was elected to the Arizona state senate, and later (prior to the current system of judicial selection) campaigned, ran and won a seat on the Maricopa County Superior Court as a Republican. But she was sufficiently left-leaning enough for liberal Democrat Bruce Babbitt, that the then-governor appointed her to the Arizona Court of Appeals in 1979. That fact alone should have given President Reagan pause.

Unfortunately, she was able to con President Reagan who nominated her as the first woman on the U.S. Supreme Court, where she delighted in being the swing vote, regularly aligning with Democrats. Reagan knew the O’Connor’s as friends of his Arizona in-laws.

In 2012, O’Connor’s son was the appropriately distrusted GOP Legislative District 28 chairman. At the time SRAZ wrote,Dist. 28 (formerly 11) recertifies its RINO status Update: O’Connor responds.”
