Hypocrisy, double standard exist when accused men are Dems

September 24, 2018

If the age of #MeToo has taught us anything, it is that any allegation made by a woman against a man is sacrosanct and unworthy of further examination. If the alleged incident occurred nearly forty years ago and the man protests that it never took place, you can be certain he is lying. If he protests too much, another “victim” will be sure to be found, to show there is a “pattern.” That no such allegations were previously made prior to the man, a constitutionalist, being nominated to U.S. Supreme Court by a Republican President of the United States, is simply coincidental.

In the case of Federal Judge Brett Kavanaugh, when the dung being thrown at him — despite having been vetted six previous times for other posts of importance — fails to stick, it’s time to dredge up more. Another “victim” has to be located and better still, a minority, to give the claims more ethnic panache.

As Democrats prance, posture and pontificate before the cameras, Republican leadership foolishly retreats. Where are the GOP senate members expressing outrage at this avalanche of politically-based negativity?  Where are the voices reminding the Democrats in the throes of feigned indignation about the allegations of rape made by multiple women against then-Arkansas Attorney General and later Governor? Untouchable, he went on to be president.

Desirous of power at all costs, Hillary staged a public relations intervention on behalf of her sexually exploitive and deceitful husband and the dirt was mysteriously swept away, including a 12-year affair with local reporter Gennifer Flowers begun when he was Governor of Arkansas. Later his problems escalated when he was found to be having an ongoing dalliance with a White House intern, substantiated by his DNA on her infamous blue dress. In the case of the intern Monica Lewinsky, he first denied and then admitted the relationship.

Hillary, who had previously attributed his  numerous liaisons and offenses tothe vast right-wing conspiracy,” couldn’t make the semen stains disappear. She was so used to dealing with his “indiscretions,” that her anger was directed at the truth being exposed rather than the offending part of her husband.

Then there was Ted Kennedy, extolled as the “Lion of the Senate.” When he took his nephews along on his drunken womanizing binges, he was just being a cool uncle. When his serial sexual exploits drove his formerly beautiful wife to alcoholism and an early death, that was just part of the Kennedy mystique.

After young senate staffer Mary Jo Kopechne died following Kennedy driving his car off the Chappaquiddick bridge after a party in 1969, it was due to the fact that he extracted himself and left her alone in the car to drown. He didn’t report the incident to the authorities. The car and her body were discovered the next morning and he finally came forward…sober and wearing a neck brace.

Kennedy pleaded guilty to “leaving the scene of an accident after causing injury.” He received a two-month suspended sentence, and went on, unscathed, to run for the presidency in 1980. More compelling than his loss to Jimmy Carter was his uncanny ability to shake off the taint of manslaughter.

Would either Bill Clinton or Ted Kennedy have been able to survive politically if they’d been Republicans? You know the answer.

Phil Boas asks God for deliverance from Pres. Trump

June 15, 2018

With FBI Director Christopher Wray’s new release of facts from the 500+ page Department of Justice Inspector General’s report regarding the “rooting out of bias” perpetrated against presidential candidate Donald Trump* from within the highest levels of government, examine the same type of anti-Trump bias displayed right here in Arizona. In this instance, we’re not referring to the contrived attempt at influence peddling by former president Bill Clinton as he boarded the plane of then-U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport as it appeared increasingly likely his wife would face criminal charges — which ultimately never materialized. They claimed to have discussed their grandchildren.

No. These hits don’t originate with D.C. power brokers or with a partisan former FBI Director shamefully exemplified by James Comey, who gave the deceitful Mrs. Clinton a pass for her countless illicit transgressions, but on the pages of the local newspaper where relentless attacks against candidate, and now President Donald Trump, remains the subject of multi-pronged, repetitive hits.

Who can forget Phil Boas? He’s the editorial page editor of the anorexic and failing Arizona Republic, better known for his loathsome dedication to bringing down 6-term Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio — Boas’ own father-in-law.

All Republicans — except pretenders John McCain and Jeff Flake — are worthy of this partisan goon’s savagery. He despises President Donald Trump with such visceral animosity that his editorial regarding the historic Singapore meeting Trump negotiated with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a leading despot on the world’s stage, is titled, “God help us if Trump solved N. Korea.”

It so rankles Boas that the businessman President who wrote, “The Art of the Deal,” just might have averted a global nuclear catastrophe, it leaves him editorially sputtering, “God help us,” numerous times in the editorial. Boas has lived to middle age without comprehending that those words are uttered by desperate people seeking divine intervention in hopeless situations. 

Those of us who comprehend the significance of such a meeting that has not previously occurred in any administration in nearly 75 years — since the Korean peninsula was divided following World War II — are awed by this extraordinary summit, that showcased cordiality from the leaders of both countries.

Rather than rejoicing or giving credit where it’s due, Phil Boas begrudgingly concedes, “It’s a long shot, but there is reason to believe Trump could actually pull this off. Kim could have caught the vision,“ he contemptuously writes, “and if he has, he could make Trump look like a genius.”

Followed by another plea, “God help us.”

The Hillary Clinton-endorsing liberals at the newspaper would rather have nukes aimed at the United States, Japan and South Korea than concede that President Trump should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.  Barack Obama received the honor simply for breathing. He was nominated within 12 days of taking the oath of office. Read the fascinating time line by attorney Tommy De Seno.

And, as far as the local newspaper? If you’re still one of the remaining subscribers, ditch it. Why support a publication that holds you and our president in contempt?

* As usual, the U.K.”s Daily Mail provides excellent in-depth coverage.


Pres. Trump boldly goes where no one has gone before

June 12, 2018

President Trump, renown for his book,”The Art of the Deal,” shapes historic diplomacy

Watching the events of the first ever meeting of a U.S. President and a North Korean leader unfold at the Singapore Summit, we are reminded that our “unconventional” president Is an innovator, willing to challenge the status quo to make progress. After eight years of Barack Obama bypassing congress to unilaterally enact new laws (video) despite acknowledging he couldn’t, and dilapidated, scandal-plagued Hillary offering more of the same, Americans gave the boot to rehashed politicians and elected businessman Donald Trump. The liberals never saw it coming, (video) but those of us who attended his rallies were not surprised.

A new website, ‘Promises Kept,” detailing President Trump’s accomplishments has recently been launched.

Each topic includes a wealth of accomplishments Republicans can point to with pride. This is what we voted for. Thank God we did. As the president attempts to engage in historic negotiations with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, pause and consider what the alternative could have been.

Visit the site. Donald Trump’s presidency has set the course of a remarkable mission and we have every reason to be proud of our votes.


Jeff Flake: Ego-driven, delusional, loses grip on reality

June 8, 2018

Irrelevant Jeff Flake, is still trying to breathe life into his dead political career. Staring down 18 percent approval ratings, he couldn’t risk the embarrassing kick to the curb Arizona voters were certain to hand him. In response, he decided to withdraw from a second senate campaign.

Flake has been wiling away his dwindling time on the D.C. stage deriding Donald Trump, the Republican President of the United States — who both Flake and McCain refused to vote for. Libertarian Flake has used the GOP party apparatus and dedicated activists to his advantage, cloaking himself as a Republican during campaign season. For his transgressions, he was even taken to the woodshed by RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel. AZ GOP leadership remained mute.

Now, as a man without a constituency, Flake hammers President Trump at every opportunity — from speechifying in the senate chamber to making appearances on left-wing media outlets.  He even wrote an anti-Trump pamphlet, he deemed a book, with a title stolen directly from Barry Goldwater’s iconic 1960 book, “Conscience of a Conservative.” The obtuse  Flake, born two years after publication, probably thought no one would notice the heist.

Now Flake has moved on to the U.S. Constitution, written even longer ago. He has determined that President Trump is exceeding his authority in imposing economic trade tariffs, and needs to be reigned in.

Learning from his Republicrat mentor, John McCain, Flake is cobbling together a “bi-partisan” effort to legislatively hogtie the president. It’s what you do when your ego exceeds the size of your brain and your political days are numbered.

Flake, a former registered foreign agent lobbying for an African uranium mining company with ties to Iran, took to accommodating CNN to declare his intentions, while repeating his foolish mantra that in today’s political environment a Republican like him can’t win. He lost his voter base for exactly the opposite reason. His left-of-center unwavering support of amnesty for illegal invaders is not a winning issue, nor is incessantly insulting the president, something he never did to his basketball playing and traveling buddy Obama, whom Flake accompanied to Kenya and Cuba.

President Trump’s approval ratings are at an all time high, the economy is enjoying unparalleled growth, unemployment is at record lows and President Trump is fulfilling the promises he made to the American people.

In this pro-Trump climate, Flake, who was unable to hold on to his home state voters, now boasts he wants to challenge President Trump in 2020.  Our response?  Run, Jeff, Run!


John McCain: Another view by Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady

May 21, 2018

Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady, a recipient of the United States military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor — is also the former president of the Medal of Honor Society. His commentary, posted at WND is titled, “Medal of Honor Hero ‘Fed Up’ With John McCain.”

We present it here for balance to the gratuitous adulation being heaped on this perpetually angry and ruthlessly vindictive man. The serious health challenges John McCain faces as he nears the end of his life, have made him no more reflective or gracious. If anything, he has become even more sanctimonious in his rage.

As politicians make their way to McCain’s Cornville, Arizona compound to say their final goodbyes, McCain, still filled with rancor from having lost the presidency, seizes on the opportunity to publicly announce that President Donald Trump will not be welcome at his funeral.

Maj. Gen. Brady provides a straightforward evaluation of Arizona’s Senior Senator. Read the linked article. You can count on the fact that it won’t be reprinted in the McCain-worshiping Arizona Republic.


USAToday’s hypocritical coverage of shooter on Trump property

May 20, 2018

In Saturday’s edition, Gannett-owned USA Today devoted all of four sentences to its coverage of a man engaged in a shootout with police at a property owned by President Trump. The insert that was intended to plump up the anorexic Arizona Republic, is, itself anorexic — consisting of only three pages (the fourth is a full page ad).

Excluding the headline that repeated the gist of the compressed coverage, 101 words were devoted to this report:

Man injured in police shootout at Miami-area Trump resort

   Gunfire erupted early Friday at President Trump’s Miami-area golf resort, as a Florida man shouting anti-Trump rhetoric fired into the hotel lobby’s chandelier and waited for police to arrive for what one official called an “ambush-type attack,” police said.

   Five police officers from Miami-Dade County and the city of Doral exchanged gunfire with the man, injuring him, and quickly ending the threat at the Trump-owned Trump National Doral Golf Club, Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez said.

   Trump was not at the suburban golf resort at the time.

   Perez identified the suspect as 42-year-old Jonathan Oddi, who lives about a mile away.

That’s it, folks! End of story. There were only indents, no paragraph spacing (as shown here) in the terse report  Donald Trump is not worthy of anything other than derogatory coverage — certainly nothing that would express concern over the well-being of the President of the United States or any of his family members.

Imagine if an active shooter had arrived in the lobby of the Clinton Foundation shouting anti-Hillary Clinton invectives. Such an assault on the pay-to-play, money-laundering facility of the defeated 2016 Democrat presidential candidate would have been worthy of front and center coverage, including an oversized color photo of a distressed Hillary staring up at the shattered chandelier, with a contrived tear rolling down her puffy cheek.

USA Today editorially endorsed scandal-plagued Clinton’s failed presidential bid with this headline: Trump is ‘unfit for the presidency.’

In Dec. 2003, Gannett stock peaked at $51.14 per share. It closed on May 17, 2018 at $11.61. It’s been down as low as $2.21.

This is what happens when journalism takes a hike and is replaced by raw partisan gamesmanship.


George Will exposes his visceral hatred of Republicans

May 12, 2018

Calls VP Mike Pence,“horrifying”

George F. Will, a longtime baseball aficionado, was once also regarded as a sound political thinker. He’s a prolific author, counting,“The Woven Figure: Conservatism and America’s Fabric,” among his many titles. The Phoenix-based Libertarian Goldwater Institute, has featured him as a fundraising headliner. That doesn’t rank him as a conservative, but for many of his fans he did a credible job of impersonating one.

Then, preceding the 2016 presidential election, Will veered off as a Never-Trumper.  A registered Republican since 1964, his revulsion of Donald Trump caused him to re-register as an Independent prior to the election.

The fact that he’s been a Washington Post columnist since 1974, should have given us pause even before Donald Trump emerged victorious over 16 other Republican Primary contenders, but many of Will’s readers were charmed by his laconic delivery and sharp wit — frequently interspersed with historical baseball minutiae.

No more. And never again.

Will has revealed himself as more than a Never-Trumper.  He is now a Republican reviler. A conservative basher. A Vice President Mike Pence mugger. Though he has a degree in Religion from Trinity College, and attended Anglican Magdalen College at Oxford, (among a host of other colleges) he self-identifies as an “amiable, low voltage atheist.”

It’s time to ditch the “amiable” label and replace it with “hateful”and update “low voltage” to “incendiary.”

Will’s latest effort, replete with words such as “feral cunning,” “oleaginous, “toadyism“ and “obsequiousness,” all packed into the opening two sentences, sets the tone of what the WaPo headlines,Trump is no longer the worst person in government.

Not content to trash the President and Vice President of the United States, George Will also scathingly takes on former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in the vicious hit piece.

You’ve been forewarned.
