McCain, pimping for Rubio, tries to disqualify Cruz

January 8, 2016

A frazzled John McCain is having trouble grasping reality.  Nothing new there. Without someone whispering in his ear, he often doesn’t know friends from foes.

The new political reality, which McCain is loath to accept is that Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are making wavesbig ones — on the GOP presidential primary landscape. The change of tide finds the political futures of establishment candidates Jeb Bush sagging and Marco Rubio lagging.

Both men, like McCain, are supporters of amnesty for illegal aliens.  Bush actually referred to those invading our country as exhibiting “an act of love,” saying the issue “shouldn’t rile people up.” Rubio eagerly hopped on McCain’s failed ‘Gang of Eight’ amnesty bandwagon, colluding with Chuck Schumer and a faction of other liberals and Republicrats to push this problematic venture. 

On Wednesday, McCain appeared on local KFYI radio’s Chris Merrill Show questioning Sen. Ted Cruz’ eligibility to run for the U.S. Presidency, saying, “I think there is a question. I am not a constitutional scholar on that, but I think it’s worth looking into. I don’t think it’s illegitimate to look into it.” The “it” stems from the fact that Cruz was born in Alberta, Canada, to an American mother and Cuban father.

Cruz, a Harvard Law School honors graduate who served as Texas’ Solicitor General, has responded that it is “settled law” that a child born to a U.S. citizen, even if they are abroad at the time, is a “natural born citizen,” as required by the U.S. Constitution.

This is old news as McCain should well know. McCain, who was born in Panama in 1936, dealt with this issue during his 2008 presidential campaign. Barry Goldwater, who sought the presidency in 1964 was born in 1909 in the Arizona Territory, three years prior to statehood. George Romney, Mitt‘s father, faced these same questions when he ran for president in 1968 since he was born to American parents living in Mexico. None of them were disqualified.

Ted Cruz has previously been denounced and called names by John McCain for staying true to his conservative principles — something McCain is incapable of comprehending.

“There are few Republicans who have betrayed our conservative principles more than John McCain,” is how Senate Conservatives Fund describes John McCain on a page titled, Replace John McCain. Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and two-term state senator, offers the intelligent alternative.

Now is the time to take action to ensure this much-needed change. U.S. Senate terms are six long years.


WaPo pulls vile toon depicting Cruz’ daughters as monkeys

Desperation of liberal media

 A knuckle dragging cartoon appearing in the left-wing Washington Post, has been removed for its overt display of bad taste. It was replaced by this editor’s note from editorial page editor Fred Hiatt, saying that it had generally been the newspaper’s policy “to leave children out of it.”

“I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published,” he wrote. “I understand why Ann thought an exception to the policy was warranted in this case, but I do not agree.”

Ann Telnaes, the recipient of Planned Parenthood’s 2002 Maggie Award for Media Excellence, for her “editorial cartoons in support of reproductive rights,” depicted pro-life Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz in a Santa suit with an organ-grinder and his young daughters Catherine, 4, and Caroline, 7, as dancing monkeys on leashes. In defending her indefensible actions, she had referred to the Cruz children as “fair game.”

Telnaes’ award is named in honor of Margaret Sanger, the racist, eugenicist and founder of the nation’s largest abortion chain.

Sen. Ted Cruz, who is surging in the recent polls, is the liberal media’s worst nightmare.

Denouncing the tasteless attack Cruz wrote in an email sent late Tuesday, “My daughters are not “FAIR GAME.” I’m sickened … I knew I’d be facing attacks from day one of my campaign, but I never expected anything like this.”

The unwarranted attack is in response to this spoof ad which aired in Iowa on the night of the recent Democrat debate, playing during Saturday Night Live.


Romney: McCain senate “lion” — did he mean lyin‘?

December 13, 2015

Scenes from McCain’s pathetically low turnout 2016 campaign kickoff

Mitt Romney repaid his debt to John McCain Saturday at Dobson High School in Mesa — where Romney, not McCain — was more likely to pull in the needed crowd for the aged senator’s bid for another 6-year term. McCain will be 80 by Election Day — you do the math.

The puny turnout for this performance was laughably overestimated at nearing 1,000 by McCain’s sycophantic Arizona Republic reporter Dan Nowicki. Local media outlets accurately reported the crowd was only about 300. See the photo and topical cartoon here. When Donald Trump came to Phoenix in the scorching heat of July, over 5,000 turned out. Ben Carson drew an estimated crowd of 12,000 in August.

Romney wore the prescribed uniform of the day, navy blazer and tie-less open collar blue shirt, with a slight stripe deviation. He, McCain and Jeff Flake could have passed for a Golden Oldies era trio seen on late night TV ads hawking cassette sales to senior citizen insomniacs. Several women seated nearby were musing over hair: Romney’s over-dyed tresses, Flake’s bleach highlighted locks, and McCain’s white comb-over, which a guy with them pointed to as one of the few consistent things about him.

Arizona’s Republican congressional delegation, all running for reelection wisely kept their distance.

Romney rejected rumors that he might get into the 2016 presidential race, and dutifully mentioned candidates he could support, who “I think would be terrific presidents, whether it’s Jeb Bush or Chris Christie or Marco Rubio or Lindsey Graham or Carly Fiorina. The list goes on and on.” Romney, who lost the presidential race to Obama in 2012, obviously has a partiality for single digit candidates.

Pointedly omitted from his list was conservative Sen. Ted Cruz, who McCain has openly insulted and called a “Wacko bird.” Breitbart’s Tony Lee reports on McCain’s sarcastic comments about Cruz in response to a question by Fox News host Martha MacCallum. McCain’s brazen animus holds little sway with Iowa voters. Bloomberg reports Cruz has surged ahead by 31 percent to become the front-runner in the campaign for the Iowa Feb. 1 caucuses, opening an impressive lead over Donald Trump.

John McCain has hit the depths of Number Six on Roll Call’s roster of the 10 most vulnerable U.S. senators. He’s has been in D.C. doing his dirty work (video) since 1982.

“There are few Republicans who have betrayed our conservative principles more than John McCain,” is how Senate Conservatives Fund describes John McCain on a page titled, Replace John McCain.

It’s time to do it.

Anchor babies taught vulgarity by proud illegal parents

November 5, 2015

Así que, ¿quién es racista?

In the event you missed this vile anti-Donald Trump video flying under the bland title, “Deport Racism,” we present it to you here. For those who wonder why Trump’s message regarding illegal immigration is igniting his poll numbers, wonder no more.

These children of illegals, who deride the term anchor babies that correctly describes them — although CNN considers it a “loaded term” and a “slur“ — are classic examples of the family values Republicrat Jeb Bush tells us exemplify the “act of love” that brings their parents to the United States. He views questioning that rationale as steeped in “harsh political rhetoric” and says their unlawful entry into our country “shouldn’t rile people up.”

After Jeb’s flaccid showing at the Oct. 28 Republican debate in Boulder, Colorado, conservative columnist Peggy Noonan described him as “The Not Ready for Prime Time Bush.”

His skewed views could explain why Jeb, the establishment’s anointed “inevitable candidate”  has now fallen to 4 percent in the most recent Fox News (page 3) and Quinnipiac (page 3) surveys.

Americans are clearly weary of double-talking amnesty proponents who pander to illegals, and are looking in new directions for leadership as we see our country collapsing. Thinking citizens realize we are running out of time.


But, but….it’s for the children

Never ending tax increases

A recent editorial in the local newspaper clearly defines the definition of going ballistic. At issue is the Maricopa County Republican Party’s opposition to the nearly thirty school districts across the Valley asking for voters to approve school bonds and overrides.

This is the October 16, 2015 press release that caused the commotion:

Republican Party of Maricopa County Calls For Sweeping Reforms To Override Election Laws

The Maricopa County GOP is calling for sweeping reforms to school district override election laws, in order to ensure that the voting public is no longer misled regarding how the money will be spent should the tax increase be approved.

The overwhelming majority of voters in Arizona are unaware that school districts are only legally obligated to spend override monies on the priorities outlined in the official voter pamphlets and promoted by pro-tax political action committees in the first year. After year one, school districts are free to waste the override dollars on whatever non-essential, non-classroom purposes they choose.

“Legislation to correct the widespread voter confusion as to how override dollars can be spent and the manner in which those expenditures are communicated to the public prior to the election is long overdue,” said Republican Party of Maricopa County Spokesman Jake Hoffman. “As a former elected school board member, I have sat in public meetings where in response to that these very district leaders intend to squander the money on non-classroom expenditures.

County GOP leadership is right. Regardless of the habitual, plaintive pleas from schools and cities for ever more funding, citizens are not golden egg laying geese. Arizona school children and the education they receive are too important to be left to these bait-and-switch tax schemes pushed by public school district administrators under the guise of teacher pay and smaller classes.

In a suspiciously timed August election — when low city voter turnout is guaranteed to be even lower — residents of Phoenix were asked to double the city transit tax over 35 years and spend $31.5 billion on an unaccountable light rail expansion — which is actually used by less than one percent of city residents. Thanks to solid union voting blocs — police, fire fighters, unionized teachers and city employees — this unconscionable monstrosity passed as special interest groups disproportionately skewed the vote to the left.

Now we are being told that a disaster of apocalyptic proportions will be visited upon our children if we don’t loosen up even more cash via higher property taxes. It’s a never-ending saga.  As cash-strapped families are forced to get by on less, school districts think they are exempt from such belt-tightening.

Schools are teaching climate change instead of American history and recycling rather than the U.S. Constitution. Cursive is gone, ensuring the end of handwriting. College students can’t find Japan on a map, and if your math challenged child lands a job at McDonald’s he can push the pictures on the computerized screen in front of him to process the order and dump the correct change in the customer’s hand. Public school grads are unable to count back change. 

We did find some humor in the newspaper’s editorial tantrum. They are still miffed that GOP County Chairman Tyler Bowyer hosted Donald Trump’s Phoenix appearance. They call Trump a “gadfly mogul” whose comments are offensive to the voters the Republican party needs to win elections  — as if the newspaper liberals care whether we win elections. The censure of John McCain in numerous counties and by elected statewide Republican delegates also doesn’t sit well with the editorial board. The editorial says it was because “McCain had the good sense to pursue immigration reform,” code jargon for amnesty. 

The Arizona Republics ranting fools fool no one.


Does nutty column signal Linda Valdez’ swan song?

October 12, 2015

Coinciding with Gannett’s offer of an early retirement package to “veteran” employees is  one of the more bizarre columns ever written by editorial writer Linda Valdez — who has never been known for thoughtful prose. Gannett, the parent company of the struggling  Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) will finalize acceptances after a 45-day consideration period has closed — today, October 12, 2015.

Valdez has been in perpetual whirling dervish mode since the introduction of SB 1070, Arizona’s landmark case addressing illegal immigration. Although parts of the law have been gutted by the courts, last month U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton dismissed the last of seven challenges to the law, allowing police, during a “lawful stop, detention or arrest,” to investigate the immigration status of those suspected of being in the country illegally. In her opinion, Judge Bolton — a Bill Clinton appointee — wrote opponents have “not produced any evidence that state law enforcement officials will enforce SB 1070 differently for Latinos than a similarly situated person of another race or ethnicity.”  The statute’s provisions mirror federal law.

Valdez, who appears to be on the brink of either madness or retirement, refers to the law as a “zombie” that “needs to be killed for our children.” She says the judge’s ruling, “Keeps the monster alive.’

Linda Valdez’ well established hatred of Republicans is evident as she opines, “Election season is when Republican politicians appeal to people’s worst fears instead of their better nature. The nativists are already shaking their pitchforks in the general direction of the Mexican border.”

“Nativists,“ for the uninitiated, is an invented term crafted by leftist open border proponents, intended to denigrate Americans who resent having our country invaded by illegal foreign hordes.

Witnessing a breakdown is disturbing, but in this case there is unintended levity as Valdez cites an editorial she probably wrote for the newspaper that pays her salary, to verify her radical views. She says SB 1070 was “considered so odious when it passed in 2010 that it was decried in a rare front page editorial in the Arizona Republic, the state’s biggest newspaper.”  

Finally, she swings into insult mode as she refuses to take into consideration the word ‘illegal.” Within the restricted framework of her convoluted reasoning, Valdez claims the Senate Bill remains “a symbol of how easily Arizona was duped into denying its Mexican heritage. It’s testimony to how easily Arizona dismissed the concerns of long-time Latino residents who suddenly became second-class citizens in a state their ancestors helped build.” In her convoluted world there are no American citizens of Mexican heritage.

In what sounds like a swan song tinged with Halloween-like, apocalyptic overtures, Valdez states, “this soul-stealing zombie has to be brought down. Once and for all.”

Most of us believe a border wall needs to be erected. Once and for all. Zombies have nothing to do with it.


Americans deliberately being mislead on economy

October 6, 2015

Just days ago, in a report titled, “Grim Jobs Report Is Likely to Delay a Move by the Fed on Rates,” the New York Times wrote of the unexpectedly dismal job growth last month casting a shadow on the nation’s economy.” The newspaper described Friday’s government report as sending analysts scrambling for adjectives like “dreadful,” “a body blow” and “grim” to describe just how disappointing they found the latest employment figures.

The U.S. Department of Labor oddly boasted that the jobless rate held steady at 5.1 percent in September — despite wage gains stalling, the labor force shrinking and employers creating far fewer positions than they had been averaging in recent months. The latest Employment Summary makes clear that American workers are still failing to take home the kind of monetary rewards normally expected from a recovery that has being going on for more than six years.

If the staggering economy were a patient, it would be on life support.

So why does the USAToday edition — tucked into the anorexic Arizona Republic in an effort to give it heft — report that the Army has hit its target for recruits in 2015, exceeding its goal, because “the improving economy has offered young men and women more job options….”

The obvious takeaway is that the lackluster economy offers few opportunities, lessening employment choices and causing youth, who might have other aspirations, to sign up for the military as they seek a steady income.

There appear to be major discrepancies in economic analysis among the sources. Then again, does anyone actually put any faith in the rosier numbers coming out of the Obama administration with Thomas Perez — the exceedingly left-wing and political former Assistant Attorney General in Obama’s DOJ — now in the position of Secretary of Labor? Here is Perez announcing his intention to sue Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, in a May 2012 news clip.
