Reality takes a hike when Trump haters gather

October 29, 2017

From time to time SRAZ has posted, “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.” With the retirement of brilliant conservative Thomas Sowell, such worthy columns are more difficult to find.

Yet as much as we enjoy reading columnists with whom we agree, it’s crucial to be aware of what  those passing themselves off as conservatives attempt to misrepresent as factual.

Today we are veering off into the incomprehensible mindset of New York Times columnist David Brooks, who appeared Friday on ‘PBS NewsHour’ with Judy Woodruff and Mark Shields. Woodruff was recently honored at a soiree in Phoenix where she was presented with the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism, given annually by Arizona State University. In her acceptance speech, Woodruff issued an assurance that “journalists are not the enemy.”

That bit of information should prepare you for what comes next —  David Brooks: This Was The Week Steve Bannon Really Took Control Of The Republican Party, posted on Real Clear Politics.

RINOs, such as Arizona’s two now irrelevant senators and leftists have joined at the hip in portraying highly accomplished Bannon as evil incarnate.  His wrongdoing?  Bringing Donald Trump to the forefront of the GOP primary lineup of 17 candidates and across the finish line as the campaign’s chief executive. After Trump was elected president, Bannon was appointed White House Chief Strategist before returning to Breitbart News as executive chairman.

David Brooks’ New York Times op-ed, The Week Trump won, opens with references to Lenin, Trotsky “and the rest of the Bolsheviks” taking over Russia.  Guess who he views as the present day disastrous political extremists?

Tainting Trump with Russian collusion traced to Hillary, DNC, McCain

October 26, 2017

John McCain hand-carried dossier to FBI intending to destroy Trump

 It must be excruciatingly painful for the liberal Washington Post, long considered an arm of the Democrat Party, to have to report the facts about the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee collusion in paying for false allegations against Donald Trump while repeatedly linking his campaign to Russian spies. It was all bogus, as he has been saying for well over a year.

What is contained in the Washington Post’s revealing report rivals any John le Carré spy fiction. The difference is, the Democrats and their operatives are willing to sacrifice the well-being of the United States and our election process in order to not only win, but also permanently disable any political challenger who keeps his promises and believes in the greatness of America.

The WaPo’s must read article is titled, “Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier.”

And that dossier filled with contrived smut? it was none other than Trump-hating John McCain, consumed with jealous rage that Donald Trump sits in the Oval Office and he never will, who hand-carried the bogus documents to then-FBI director James Comey.

The same Director Comey who casually cleared Hillary Clinton of all charges pending against her.

In Jeff Flake’s recent declaration that he won’t seek reelection, he places the blame at the feet of President Trump — not his own abysmal 18% approval rating —saying he “won’t be complicit,” with the current path of the Republican Party.

Today’s  Arizona Republic editorial, written by Elvia Diaz, the heiress apparent to aging left-winger Linda Valdez, refers to those who support the senate candidacy of Dr. Kelli Ward, as “her ilk.”

The words are obviously not intended as a compliment to conservatives, but we’ll gladly take them. Who would want to be called a Democrat in today’s world?

Emmy award winning investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson reveals the truth about baseless Democrat claims of “treasonous Russian collusion” repeatedly lodged against President Trump.


Establishment candidate Jeff Flake folds senate tent

October 24, 2017

There is nothing noble about this out of touch RINO leaving the senate. He takes his leave by continuing to bash Republican Pres. Donald Trump

The Arizona Republic calls Jeff Flake’s decision not to run for reelection to the U/S. Senate “a bombshell.” We call it prudent.  As we have repeatedly written in a sidebar topic titled, Jeff the Flake, Jeff Flake is disconnected to Arizona conservatives, winning the senate by only 3 percentage points in 2012. Open borders supporting Flake has been losing to conservative Dr. Kelli Ward in poll after poll.

The question is, where does the squish elite of the AZ GOP throw its support? Conservatives will support Ward. The RINO hacks in charge of the party apparatus, will blame her for Flake’s decision and likely look elsewhere — conceivably handing a victory to radical chameleon CD 9 U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema.  A first term member of congress, she recently announced for the U.S. Senate. This soft campaign ad about a young military vet who committed suicide, shows her ability to facilely switch positions.

McCain clone Flake told the newspaper, “Here’s the bottom line — The path that I would have to travel to get the Republican nomination is a path I’m not willing to take, and that I can’t in good conscience take. It would require me to believe in positions I don’t hold on such issues as trade and immigration and it would require me to condone behavior that I cannot condone.”

Jeff Flake was not averse tocompromising his positionsin 2011, when facing Arizona voters, he backtracked on his amnesty bent, terrifying the open border newspaper — but only until the ballots were counted.

This is how Breitbart News characterized the Flake exit.

Last month, Jeff the Flake was continuing to raise money while already having nearly $3 and a half million in his campaign coffers. Where will that cash go?


AZ Republic editorial previews McCain obit

October 19, 2017

No, we are not being insensitive to the fact that John McCain has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer by his Mayo Scottsdale doctors.  Such a sentence is dreadful. In many cases, receiving a dire diagnosis provides patients time to reflect and even make amends.

Not so with AZ Sen. John McCain.  Or his apologists.

It’s clear there is nothing John McCain can do or say that warrants a reprimand or even a raised eyebrow from his slavishly adoring fans at the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper.

 The editorial carrying the title: “Our View: Trump answers McCain’s call for patriotism — with narcissism,” reeks of pomposity run amok. The less confrontational hardcopy version was titled, “McCain’s call for patriotism.”

Seeing Red AZ covered the petty McCain’s scathing remarks in America First “unpatriotic, half-baked nationalism,” says McCain– just two days ago as he received the Liberty Medal from the left-of-center organization with a winning name: The National Constitution Center. Even while being honored, he was unable to contain his hostility, using the occasion to jealously hammer President Trump.

 John McCain is an exceptionally flawed man, as evidenced by his renown temper tantrums, flagrant lies and underhanded trickery. He has pilloried people of integrity and publicly used the foulest language toward his wife. As chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee he permanently classified  the facts concerning American Vietnam era POWs and MIAs. Family members who have spent decades pleading with him at senate committee hearings for answers received insults from McCain. This video exposes why.

The bitterness McCain, now 81, carries against President Donald Trump, who attained that which will forever be out of his grasp is nothing short of despicable.  McCain even contrived a now exposed as fallacious, Russian collusion fable, and hand carried the dossier falsely implicating Trump to the FBI director. Though they despise him for trouncing Hillary Clinton, there is likely no Democrat as eager to bring down the Trump presidency as Republicrat John McCain.

Taking the newspaper’s preposterous praise for McCain and unwarranted condemnation of President Trump apart sentence by sentence is a task unworthy of taking on.

The fingerprints of editorial page director Phil Boas are all over this undeserved paean to McCain. Boas relentlessly hammered his own father-in-law, popular Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, ensuring his defeat after six-four year terms. It didn’t bother the newspaper that the incoming sheriff was funded by globalist Socialist George Soros, a billionaire whose aims include funding a takeover of the U.S.  justice system and ultimately, borderless nations. The Republic gave a wink and a nod when liberal Sheriff Paul Penzone referred to illegal invaders as “guests.”

It’s no surprise, Soros has financed John McCain for years.


Concerns mount over McCain’s defection on tax cuts

October 13, 2017

Conservatives in the Grand Canyon state, exposed to Arizona’s senior senator (ASS) John McCain for three-and-a-half decades, know he  loves nothing more than the face he sees reflected in the mirror each morning. A marginal man who attained stature via his family connections — both his father and grandfather were Navy Admirals, ASS was able to gain admittance to the U.S. Naval Academy, though graduating at the bottom of his class. It didn’t hurt that he ultimately married a well-connected Phoenix heiress, whose father opened what would have been unattainable doors for him.

His image as a returned Vietnam POW aided the reluctant Republican when he was the ringleader of a pack of Democrats in the Keating Five scandal that rocked the U.S. financial world and  ended other’s senate careers. He’s made his mark as a political contrarian, which he refers to as being a “maverick.”  In essence, his pretense amounts to sticking his finger in the eye of the very Republicans he claims to represent.

Surprisingly, the liberal Washington Post tentatively appears to be on to him. In an analysis headlined, “The Finance 202 McCain could give the same thumbs-down to a tax overhaul as he did to health care,” reporter Tory Newmyer is on the right track, but veers into giving McCain credit for values he doesn’t possess.

McCain’s vacillation is a worthy concern, since he delights in sucker punching Republican colleagues and has repeatedly-duped Arizona voters, many newcomers and residents of retirement communities, with his massive pre-election TV ad buys and campaign mailers dishonestly touting himself as a conservative as he blatantly lies about his challengers. Truth is not on ASS’s agenda on any topic, tax reform being no exception. But the report wholly misjudges the ailing and elderly McCain‘s motives with these words:

“Yet over his decades in public life, McCain has traced a zigzagging line on the subject, leaving little clear indication of how he’ll approach a potentially decisive vote. A look at the senator’s record on taxes shows that three things seem most important to him: public debate, some help for the middle class, and not exploding the deficit.”  

Let’s be clear. McCain is a lot of things. Altruistic is not one of them. The three things that are actually most important to him are the ability to relentlessly jab President Donald Trump, who attained the job McCain spent a career in D.C. coveting. McCain has problems articulating rationally about the economy, (brief, but great, video). He has a vacillating record on tax cuts. Public debate? The McCain-Feingold campaign finance bill was filled with free speech restrictions. Nice try, but the man who doesn’t even know how many homes he owns is not a bleeding heart for the middle class.

Trusting ASS is akin to trusting a snake.


Lame duck Sen. Corker hurls insults at Pres. Trump

October 10, 2017

Tennessee Senator Bob Corker recently announced his intention to step down after his term expires in 2018. Following the expected blather about this being a family decision, he said,“When I ran for the Senate in 2006, I told people that I couldn’t imagine serving for more than two terms.” Using the grand “we“ rather than “I,” he continued, “Understandably, as we have gained influence, that decision has become more difficult.”

What Corker omits is that he has already announced challengers on his right flank, who agree with Breitbart executive and former chief strategist to President Trump, Steve Bannon, who said over the weekend that “the Republican establishment is trying to nullify the 2016 election.”

“Corker doesn’t have the guts to get back in the race,” Bannon said, predicting that Corker would be easily defeated by Trump-supporting Tennessee U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn.

Since his announcement, with nothing to lose, Corker has been on an insulting rampage against the president, asking in a tweet Sunday whether someone “missed their shift” at the White House, which he referred to as a day care center.

“Bannon summed up the opposition, stating,”I think Mitch McConnell, and to a degree, Paul Ryan. They do not want Donald Trump’s populist, economic nationalist agenda to be implemented. Bannon added. “It’s very obvious.”

Calling on Corker to resign now, Bannon said, “He got out because he saw what happened in Alabama,” referring to populist Judge Roy Moore’s victory over McConnell-backed Sen. Luther Strange.

Bannon added, “Ryan and McConnell will not help Trump implement the agenda that got him elected “unless they’re put on notice. They’ll be held accountable if they do not support the President of the United States. Right now there’s no accountability. They do not support the president’s program. It’s an open secret on Capitol Hill. Everybody in this city knows it.”

He might have added Arizona‘s ‘thumbs down” Senior Senator (ASS) to that list. The vengeful McCain, elderly and suffering from a malignant brain tumor, continues to do all he can to undercut President Trump at every turn — including hand carrying a fake “dossier” to the FBI director, which he hoped implicated then-newly-elected President Trump in a compromising Russian scandal. It was McCain who cast the deciding vote to sabotage the effort to repeal Obamacare.

Arizona Rebublicrats McCain and Jeff Flake refused to support Donald Trump, the Republican nominee during the 2016 presidential election. Both U.S. Senators aided scandal plagued liberal Hillary Clinton.

Bannon told Fox News Sean Hannity that he is declaring war against the “establishment, globalist clique” on Capitol Hill that opposes Trump’s agenda.

We wish him luck.


NFL player’s union deep connections to radical George Soros

October 7, 2017

The Washington Times runs a stunning headline you’d never see in the left-of-center, Hillary Clinton endorsing Arizona Republic:NFL players’ union teamed up with Soros to fund leftist advocacy groups.”

 The information it delivers provides the back story to much of the anti-American political activism that has shocked fans and turned many away from the games. SRAZ would do a disservice to the superb reporting of Valerie Richardson if we attempted to synopsize her in-depth article so we direct our readers to linked article, which includes links to tax documents.

Socialist billionaire George Soros, who disdains national sovereignty and borders, funds multiple front groups to forward his agenda which also included anti-Trump advocacy beginning prior to President Trump’s election.

Soros’ impact, in the form of heavyweight monetary contributions, has affected the National Football League. Viewership is down appreciably since the NFL made the decision to unify in support of disrespecting our National Anthem and flag, as players “take the knee” rather than standing in respect for the symbols of freedom. NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” numbers in the first two weeks of the regular season fell 7% in viewership compared to last year. ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” is down 5%; and the averages of Sunday afternoon games on Fox and CBS are down 11% and 19% respectively, according to Nielsen data. CBS hasn’t yet had a 4:25 p.m. national game this season, which usually accounts for the principal viewership of the weekend.

Brian Hughes, a senior vice president at Magna, which monitors audience trends, would like us to believe Hurricane Irma impacted viewership during the NFL’s first week.

If blaming hurricanes doesn’t work for you, Hughes provides another excuse: blaming fan inability to concentrate. It’s our mindlessness, rather than the grossly overpaid players offensive attitude that is responsible for the steep declines.  “In general people’s attention spans have changed,” Hughes said. “There’s evidence that people are intensely interested in fewer things and generally interested in more things, and I think that’s a function of deluge of content that we are finding ourselves in nowadays.”

We’re not as incapable of walking and chewing gum at the same time as Hughes would presume. In fact we were able to locate DiscoverTheNetwork.Org’s Guide to the Political Left detailing George Soros Connections, listing his myriad front groups, established to impose his Socialist agenda and disrupt order in the United States.

In the event you missed it, SRAZ detailed the John McCain and Hillary Clinton connection in a Feb. 2016 post titled, “By George! McCain & Hillary have a lot in common.”  Soros also funneled money to Democrat Paul Penzone who defeated popular 6-term Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Politico, in a concerning report revealed that Soros is quietly working behind the scenes to fund a massive overhaul the U.S. Justice system.

Keep your eye on the ball, folks. Our future depends on it.
