Flaky Flake vows to block Trump’s judicial nominees

November 15, 2018

When it come to disasters facing the United States, we have a tough choice between the thousands of illegal aliens storming our southern border or lame-duck Arizona Senator Jeff Flake. 

Republicrat Flake who was realistically unable to run for reelection due to bottom-dragging 18% approval ratings in his home state, so despises President Trump that even as his days in the U.S. Senate are numbered, he is working with Democrats to undermine the president.

 A member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Flake has vowed to block Trump’s federal judicial nominees in order to assure the continuation of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian collusion into the 2016 presidential election — that after two years has not produced a scintilla of evidence against President Trump, his family or associates. The skullduggery was orchestrated and funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, in association with other unsavory characters. The ‘report’ which came to be known by the intrigued-laced term, “the dossier,” was personally carried to then-FBI Director James Comey by none other than John McCain, a Hillary Clinton supporter. McCain previously referred to Clinton as a “rock starhe could support for president — which he, Flake and their families, no doubt did.

In this video statement from the senate chamber, Flake pompously announced, “I have informed the majority leader I will not vote to advance any of the 21 judicial nominees pending in the Judiciary Committee or vote to confirm the 32 judges awaiting confirmation on the Senate floor until S. 2644 is brought to the full Senate for a vote.”

As Flake showboats in deviation from the GOP majority, the bill is supported by unified Democrats. President Trump, who has repeatedly dismissed the Mueller probe as a “witch hunt,” has steadfastly denied that any collusion with Russia occurred.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other top Republicans oppose the Flake/Coons bill. “I don’t think any legislation is necessary,” said McConnell, who on Wednesday won his effort to remain Senate Republican leader next year.

“We know how the president feels about the investigation, but he’s never said he wants to shut it down,” McConnell stated.

Like his mentor John McCain, who made a career of colluding with Democrats, Flake has partnered on this nefarious scheme with his Frick and Frack buddy, Delaware Democrat Sen. Chris Coons.

Farcical Dist. 28 race: Follow the money

November 8, 2018

Do lobbyist’s $$ speak Republicanese?

After interminable negative ads, Arizona’s 2018 mid-term elections have mercifully ended, except for a couple of too-close-to-call races that should have already been resolved. In this post, however, the focus is on who the state legislators actually answer to. These are the elected officials closest to the people, representing the 30 statewide legislative districts. Each district elects a state senator and two state representatives who serve two year terms and are term-limited to eight consecutive years in office, with novel ways of skirting those restrictions. They work on Washington Street in Phoenix, not D.C.

SRAZ has described the unsavory machinations in Legislative District 28, where district voters were barraged with campaign flyers emanating from the Arizona Republican Party — omitting the photo of conservative incumbent Maria Syms.  Highlighted were former state Rep. Kate Brophy McGee, running for the state senate and her recruited rabble rouser Kathy Pappas Petsas. One of the mailers is included in this post, “AZ GOP ignores conservative Syms, endorses LD 28 RINOs.”

For their efforts, the AZ GOP and Brophy McGee got double payback.  Not only did they score what they foolishly considered a win in replacing the highly qualified Rep. Maria Syms, but their schemes shamefully worked to elect two Democrats to the state House, in what was once known as a solid red district. Kathy Pappas Petsas went down in flames, coming in dead last of the four running for the LD 28 two House seats.

Today’s post provides a literal wealth of information that few voters bother to check. It’s all public information available on the Secretary of State‘s website, and is a primo primer of who our legislators actually answer to — those who fund them. Congressional candidates funding sources are easily available on the Federal Elections Commission website.

Since Kathy Pappas Petsas lost, we’ll direct you to her funding sources, who would have done equally well throwing their money down a rat hole. All statewide candidates can be found here. Chances are you might not recognize the lobbyists, but they are rife in her reporting. Which leads us to wonder how a political newcomer develops these insider moneyed connections and what did they expect in return?

Scroll through to her name, and then click on the “Individual Contributions” list and “Contributions from Political Committees.”

It’s a given that candidates need money to finance increasingly expensive campaigns. There’s nothing wrong with fundraising which is integral to campaigning. The question is how did fresh out of the political chute Kathy Pappas Petsas establish these contacts and what were their expectations?


Martha McSally has earned AZ US Senate seat

November 2, 2018

No deceit is too outrageous for Sinema or the liberal Arizona Republic newspaper

Although the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic has already endorsed radical leftist Kyrsten Sinema in the Arizona U.S. Senate race, and today’s edition runs a vicious Pinocchio-nosed cartoon of demonstrably better qualified Congresswoman Martha McSally, the same issue of the schizophrenic newspaper features a front page, above-the-fold headline and photo of the two candidates with the headline, “Moving To The MIDDLE” in which it urges readers to “forget attack ads: Sinema, McSally boast relatively moderate records.”

This is a blatant lie.

Sinema was exposed in Kyrsten Sinema’s devious metamorphosis, and has even lied about growing up in an abandoned gas station without running water or electricity. She will stop at nothing to win this race that will hamstring Pres. Trump’s abilities to get federal judges, Supreme Court Justices and cabinet officials confirmed. His winning agenda will be held hostage.

Arizonans have a real choice between two very different candidates. Stripping away Sinema’s heavily leftwing-financed, deceitful ads and slyly crafted reincarnation of herself, we have dedicated American Martha McSally who doesn’t just give lip service to veterans. McSally is the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat and first to command a fighter squadron in combat in United States history.

The choice couldn’t be more clear. It’s long been said that your actions when you think no one is looking is what defines your character. This recently released Project Veritas video reveals the truth about Sinema and her campaign staff.

Early ballots have altered the dynamics of voting. Although Tuesday Nov. 6 is Election Day, upward of 80 percent of ballots have already been cast. It’s too late to mail them in now, but your vote in this tight race is critically important and can still count. Drop off your ballot at a polling place on Tuesday.

The AZ Secretary of State provides this locator and pertinent information. Beware. Search engines are likely to take you to Priorities USA, a George Soros funded* left-wing site, aiming to shift votes to the left.

Halloween’s over but AZ’s leftist goblins still haunt

November 1, 2018

Arizona’s Secretary of State is too important to overlook. Steve Gaynor is best equipped for this important post that is next in line of succession to the governor

True to her liberal roots, Katie Hobbs, the Democrat running for Arizona Secretary of State, touts her experience as a social worker as she denigrates successful Republican businessman Steve Gaynor as “unqualified.” 

Social work, a refuge of leftists, is inconceivably one of the jobs that spirited radical Kyrsten Sinema to the U.S. House. Now she’s running for the U.S. Senate.  What a novel career path Dems choose. In the skewed liberal mindset of Democrats working “over 25 years” in a domestic abuse shelter not only qualifies Hobbs to be next in the line of succession to the governor’s office, but is enough to entice RINOcrat Grant Woods to endorse her — one of a long line of liberals he finds appealing.  Like Sinema, Hobbs also had a stint in the state legislature where she cemented her leftwing credentials in every conceivable area as exposed by Vote Smart, whose motto is “Facts Matter.”

Woods, John McCain’s first chief-of-staff, has recently been throwing out teasers about running for the senate seat currently being kept warm by former Sen. Jon Kyl. Gov. Doug Ducey appointed him to fill out McCain’s unexpired term. Kyl has indicated he only wants to serve until the end of the year — leaving open the possibility that Ducey would appoint his former boss Cindy Hensley McCain to fill out the rest of the six-year term which ends after the 2022 election in January 2023.

When Ducey first arrived in Arizona to attend ASU, he worked at Hensley Distributorship, the Anheuser-Busch beer empire owned by Cindy McCain. The Ducey’s and McCain’s have maintained a warm friendship over the years. It was McCain who first encouraged Ducey’s entrance into the political arena.

Don’t be distracted. There is the very real possibility Arizonans are about to witness all hell breaking lose, even though the scorching summer has subsided. Vote for Steve Gaynor to maintain our Republican control of the crucial office of Secretary of State.


AZ GOP ignores conservative Syms, endorses LD 28 RINOs

October 22, 2018

View the deceptive mailer that omits incumbent State Representative Maria Syms

It’s no secret the establishment Republicrats running the Arizona Republican Party have not represented conservatives since Robert Graham, a McCain toady, held the party reins. Now with his hand picked successor Jonathan Lines at the helm, bizarre campaign mailings have been sent out in Legislative District 28.

Pay attention to the missing conservative on the mailers. Somehow District 28 Legislator Maria Syms is mysteriously absent from the campaign pieces arriving in voter’s mailboxes. Know this: It’s an inside job by the party body snatchers.

There are two GOP candidates running for two state House seats in the district. Conservative incumbent Maria Syms, who deserves to be retained, and RINO rabble rouser Kathy Pappas Petsas — known for wanting to “Dekookify” the state GOP in 2012 by clearing out conservatives.  Petsas has aligned with former House member Kate Brophy McGee, now running for the state Senate. Both Petsas and McGee are committed abortion proponents, Syms is pro-life. Only candidate Petsas, lacking relevant experience, and her mentor Brophy McGee appear on the mailer.

This omission was no oversight. There is a war being waged within the Republican Party, as RINOs consider themselves superior to conservatives in general and President Trump supporters, specifically.

But it is on the fundamental life issue where the rubber meets the road. The Republican Party Platform is unequivocally pro-life, even though John McCain was not bonded to that defining principle; waffling as he understatedly called abortion an “unpleasant” procedure and declaring that he wanted to take the party back to the time prior to the 1980 inclusion of the pro-life plank. (Brief video.) 

Maria Syms’ stellar career includes having served as an Assistant Attorney General, Assistant U.S. Attorney, Paradise Valley Town Councilwoman, and now as a State Representative. She has a proven track record advocating for education, law enforcement, public safety and border security.

SRAZ wrote about conservatives being targeted in LD 28 by Kathy Petsas in 2012. When it comes to RINOs, the tune remains the same…it’s just blown on a different harmonica.

The Pro-Life plank of the Republican Platform states:

 “Faithful to the ‘self-evident’ truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed.”

That basic premise is not one reasonable people thrust aside. Those who fight strenuously for the “right” to kill defenseless babies, are neither reasonable, nor worthy of representing families across the district.

Learn more about Representative Maria Syms. She’s the clear choice for voters in Legislative District 28.

 


AZ Republic, where leftism rules, still hounds Arpaio

October 17, 2018

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio still generates headlines in the duplicitous Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper. The popular sheriff, elected to an unprecedented six 4-year terms, was relentlessly hounded out of office by the newspaper’s editorial page editor, Phil Boas, Arpaio’s own son-in-law in 2016.

But replacing Republican Arpaio with a Democrat accused wife beater wasn’t enough. Today’s headline links Arpaio to Dennis Hof, a Nevada entrepreneur and brothel owner who died in his sleep hours after a political rally/birthday party at which Joe Arpaio, Tucker Carlson, and Grover Norquist spoke. Hof, 72, was a Trump-supporting Republican candidate for the Nevada Assembly. Prostitution is legal and regulated in larger counties by the state of Nevada.

An online search reveals the newspaper went uncharacteristically mute when Democrat former First Lady Rosalynn Carter was pictured greeting John Wayne Gacy and Jim Jones, both mass murderers.

Gacy, later executed, was charged with the torture and sex-related murders of at least 33 boys and young men whose bodies he confessed to burying under his own house. Mrs. Carter shook his hand.

Jones was the monstrous cult leader and Marxist, purporting to be a minister, who led 912 followers to take their own lives and those of their children by drinking a cyanide-laced grape Kool Aid-type concoction at his Jonestown compound in Guyana. This mass slaughter took place after the killing of U.S. Congressman Leo Ryan and his team who came to investigate at the request of relatives of some members of the commune.

The only reason to subscribe to the overpriced daily disseminator of garbage which habitually endorses Democrats is if you enjoy having your intelligence insulted and blood pressure spiked.


Unhinged anti-Trump Dems seek new remedy

October 9, 2018

Impeachment won’t play out, so despondent Dems turn to abolishing Electoral College as support for the system rises

The thrust for change in our nation’s election process isn’t new. In more recent times it peaked in 2000 when Democrat Al Gore, with the majority of popular votes (48.4%), lost to George W. Bush (47.9%) who won the Electoral College vote 271 – 266. There were renewed calls from the left to abandon the system when Donald Trump (45.9%) was victorious over Hillary Clinton (48.0%) in 2016. The Electoral College vote was 232 for Hillary and 306 for Trump. Clinton also had five defectors. One, from Washington state, voted for Faith Spotted Eagle.

The general election in November is an indirect election, where voters cast ballots for a slate of members of the Electoral College. These electors, in turn, directly elect the President and Vice President. Our nation’s founders put this system, which has served us well for over 230 years, in place for a reason. Each state regardless of size or population has two senators. But states with higher populations are not able to overwhelm less densely populated states. Without the Electoral College, states like California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and New York would have disproportionate influence in the nation’s elections. The number of electors is equal to the number of U. S. Senators and Representatives to which each state is entitled in Congress.

Like spoiled children, dejected Democrats, are flailing about trying to overturn the 2016 election of Donald Trump, who is doing exactly what he promised — to the delight of the majority of American citizens, benefiting from the Trump tax cuts, increased purchasing power and historically low unemployment. His unprecedented meetings with North Korean and Chinese leaders and discussions on nuclear disarmament have opened the door to making the world a safer place.  Facing contentious battles, he has added two justices on the U.S. Supreme Court.

This Gallup poll taken within weeks of the 2016 election of President Trump, shows Americans’ support for the electoral college has risen sharply.

Dissolute Dems have little chance of reining in the Electoral College, which is enshrined in our Constitution. Eliminating it requires a Constitutional amendment. That’s a two-thirds vote in both the House and the Senate and the ratification of three-fourths (38) of the 50 states — a virtual impossibility.
