Jeb! proves he’s politically tone deaf

June 29, 2015

Besides being an establishment backed RINO, Jeb! is also tone-deaf. Sunday, fearful about his prospects of coming in ahead of the Republican pack in the campaign donation department, Team Jeb! sent out two desperate calls for money before the FEC filing deadline for this quarter, which ends midnight Tuesday.

The first email solicitation was a colossal blunder. The subject line was “¡Todos por Jeb!” or “All for Jeb!” for English speakers. The message addressed in McCainese to “Friend,” was signed by Jeb’s Mexican-born and raised wife Columba, who stresses the importance of the “deadline.”

Within short order, that email was followed by another, also sporting the “Friend” salutation from George “P” Bush, the lawyer son of Jeb! and Columba — still quaintly using a last name —  who is laying his own political groundwork having been elected as the Texas Land Commissioner. “P” writes, “I know mom reached out, but I wanted to follow-up. Dad needs your help, no two ways about it. This is the first deadline of the campaign, and Dad is going to have to disclose just how many people are supporting his campaign — everyone will be watching,” implores “P.”

He says we must do our “duty to support Dad before this critical end-of-the-month deadline.”

Then comes the threat: ”There are only two outcomes when midnight Tuesday rolls around:

  1. We’ll hit our goal and send the other campaigns a clear message of our strength. 
  2. We’ll fail and send a message to Hillary that we’re not serious: that the path to the White House will be unobstructed.

Message to ”P”: At last count there were a dozen other Republicans besides your Dad who have thrown their hats in the ring. This is not a Jeb!/Hillary face-off.

Jeb! the third Bush presidential aspirant has marginalized himself with his support of Common Core and calling the illegal invasion “an act of love.“ He actually said the issue “shouldn’t rile people up.”  As if on cue, John McCain’s doppelganger Jeff Flake agreed with Jeb!, praising him for having “the guts to say it.” 

Even establishment Republicrat Karl Rove, who has taken his losing battle of bashing conservatives on the road, conceded that Jeb Bush was not artful (sly enough) in those remarks. 

We can do better. Jeb! is a Bush too far.


Extremists incrementally transforming America

June 25, 2015

“We need to put the American flag down”

Few of us will forget the words uttered by presidential candidate Barack Obama days preceding the 2008 election. The foolish crowds, taught moral equivalency rather than American exceptionalism by liberal unionist teachers, cheered as he vowed,“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

Michelle Obama, who attended Princeton and Harvard Law School on scholarships, oddly acknowledged, “For the first time in my adult lifetime I’m really proud of my country.”  Not as widely publicized was this outlandish comment: “We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation….and he (Barack Obama) is prepared t do it.“

The offensive comments maligning America taken in stride then, have now assumed a renewed fervor. Political correctness reigns to such an extent that when a psychotic 9th grade dropout, citing a racist “manifesto” as his reason for mowing down nine black innocents in a South Carolina church Bible study group, people fall over themselves to jettison historic Civil War symbols that were an integral part of the landscape before his senseless massacre. Confederate flags have been removed from the shelves of major retailers.

Politicians and celebrities race to weigh in on the “vile” history of the flag, now vanishing from statehouses where it has flown in unity with Old Glory. Due to the despicable actions of a deranged 21-year-old, there are now efforts to dismantle statues depicting Civil War soldiers in parks and courthouse squares where many have stood for a century. The war between the states, where family loyalties were often divided, ended in 1865.   

Former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, a Democrat, is a lone voice as he encourages people to understand the “complicated history of the Civil War” as they call for the removal of the Confederate flag across the country. His statement can be read here.

What thinking Americans, seeing the national knee bent in supplication to political correctness, would have doubted that this demand would follow as hate monger and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan used the horrific slaughter to declare:

“I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag.”  His comments, made at a worship service,  were met with cheers and applause. He added, “Who are we fighting today? It’s the people that carry the American flag.”

Jeb!’s Hillary problem

June 18, 2015

Interchangeable GOP and Dem retreads each drop their toxic last names hoping to dupe voters

It’s difficult to imagine a more effective campaign ad. For America has nailed it with “Unelectable” —- following up with this series of reminders.

 

 


Insulting readers not Rx for AZ Republic’s survival

May 31, 2015

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, 73, is a political aberration who could only exist among the oddballs who bought into the far left views of Vermont ice cream entrepreneurs Ben and Jerry. Not content to peddle uniquely named flavors such as “Vermonty Python,” the duo ventured into stirring their leftist politics into the creamy treats —- turning off conservative fans. The latest flavor promoting “climate justice” is dubbed, “Save Our Swirled.” Get it?

Vermont is also where Judge Edward Cashman veered left as he ordered a pedophile who pleaded guilty to the ongoing rape of a little girl to 60 days in jail rather than the maximum 20 years prosecutors requested.

In this outstanding column in National Review Matthew Continetti identifies Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ redistribution ideology as “Fossil Socialism.”  Self-described “Democratic Socialist” Sanders was deceptively elected as an Independent and caucuses with the Democrats. 

So who does this left-wing critic of capitalism counts among his Arizona fans? None other than the Arizona Republic ’s resident fellow traveler Linda Valdez.This was her two cents worth a couple of days ago:

 “It might be deja vu all over again for Hillary Clinton

Barack Obama is a fine president, but he did jump the line in 2008. It was supposed to be Hillary Clinton’s year. But Obama had a more authentic message. So Hillary had to wait. Conventional wisdom says 2016 is her year. The Democratic nomination is hers to lose. But will it be deja vu all over again? This time Bernie Sanders is the long shot who sounds more authentic. His message resonates in forgotten corners of America and scares the pants off the power elite.  Go Bernie.”

As the newspaper hemorrhages readers, subscriptions plummet and the remaining staffers try desperately to implement the switch to a much cheaper, easier to print and deliver digital version, they mindlessly continue to insult their own bread and butter with this radical drivel. 

Gannett, which owns the Arizona Republic and its mainstay USA Today, has seen its stock tumble. Recently USA Today’s editor-in-chief, David Callaway admitted it could stop publishing a daily print newspaper as soon as in the next “five or six years.” His candid assessment was made in response to a question during an Internet Week New York panel.

Yet the Republic continues to insult the aging demographic that still likes the sound of a newspaper thrown on their driveway and remembers it from its better days as an actual journalistic endeavor. Regardless of the leftwing content that surrounds the crossword puzzles, obits and grocery coupons, those folks overwhelmingly vote Republican.


Scott Walker separates from Pres. Pack on amnesty

May 12, 2015

Consulting with Sen. Jeff Sessions pushes Gov. Walker ahead in Iowa

There’s a lot to admire about two-term Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. A solid conservative, in his 2010 race for governor, Walker soundly defeated a popular Democrat Milwaukee mayor. After being sworn into office in 2011, Walker introduced Wisconsin Act 10 to address the state’s projected $3.6 billion budget deficit. The Act limited many unsustainable union protections for public employees.

Declaring, “We’re broke,“ the new governor wanted public employees to pay more for their health insurance and toward their pensions. Massive protests erupted at the state capitol culminating in a recall against Walker. Ultimately he emerged victorious —- the only governor in U.S. history to win a gubernatorial recall election. 

At 47, he brings youthful vigor to the largely uninspiring GOP candidate list, rife with retreads. This recent Quinnipiac Poll shows still undeclared candidate Walker leading the Iowa Republican caucus pack, with establishment favorite Jeb Bush at a distant seventh.

National Review reports that Walker has met with Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions* and is adopting a firmer stance on illegal immigration —- separating himself from the politically correct, open border, squish pack, even moderating his own former position. National Review refers to Walker’s position as “hard line.” We call it rational.

As border state front-liners, Arizonans have endured the amnesty duplicity of Sens. John McCain,  Jeff Flake, and previously, Jon Kyl. Gov. Scott Walker breathes new life into the political landscape on this crucial subject.   

“The next president and the next Congress need to make decisions about a legal-immigration system that’s based on, first and foremost, on protecting American workers and American wages,” Walker told Glenn Beck. “It is a fundamentally lost issue by many in elected positions today, is what is this doing for American workers looking for jobs, what is this doing to wages, and we need to have that be at the forefront of our discussion going forward,” he said, citing Sessions by name as someone with whom he’d discussed the issue.

This Gallup Poll reports that 60% of Americans say they are dissatisfied with the level of immigration into the country today.  Only 7% want more. To the larger plurality of Americans, Scott Walker’s position makes sense.

* Sen. Jeff Sessions is the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest.


Hillary’s amnesty deceit gravely imperils USA

May 9, 2015

Brazen lies a way of life for Hillary Clinton

Hot Air reports on this 2003 sound bite from Hillary Clinton, saying:

  “We’ve got to do several things and I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants. I made this exception basically on humanitarian grounds because of the individual story but certainly we’ve got to do more at our borders. And people have to stop employing illegal immigrants. Come up to Westchester, go to Suffolk and Nassau counties, stand in the street corners in Brooklyn or the Bronx – you’re going to see loads of people waiting to get picked up to go do yard work.”   — Hillary Clinton, John Gambling Radio Show, February 2003

 Fast forward to May 6, 2015 in Las Vegas where, as a Democrat candidate for U.S. President, Hillary declares her intent to “go even further” than Barack Obama in gifting full citizenship to those in our country illegally.  Watch video here.

Like her husband, Hillary Clinton is an accomplished liar. Whether the issues go back decades to the suspiciously missing Rose Law Firm documents regarding the Whitewater scandal, her Benghazi deception as Secretary of State, blaming the “vast right-wing conspiracy” for her husband‘s renown philandering, falsely claiming to dodge sniper bullets in Bosnia or trying to prove her amnesty creds by declaring her own American-born grandmother was an immigrant, Hillary Clinton lacks even a passing acquaintance with the truth. The Clinton Foundation scandal, worthy of a federal investigation, grows with every passing day, as more foreign governments seeking favors are revealed as mega donors.

There is no topic more crucial to the survival of the United States as we know it than the issue of curtailing the continuing flood of illegal immigration. ISIS is now a homegrown threat, recruiting  within our border, according to ABC News, yet millions of unvetted Muslims have been granted legal access to our country and are being settled in far-reaching communities from Idaho to Tennessee.

In 2011, we wrote Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns, which included a chilling ABC 10 News report from San Diego, detailing evidence that the Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah has a long-established foothold across the border in Tijuana.

As far back as October 2001, WND carried an article titled Arab terrorists crossing border, warning of a “tremendous increase in OTM’s (law enforcement’s term for ‘Other Than Mexicans’). Illegals from the former Soviet Union, Asia, and the Middle East are joining the flood of Mexicans, Central and South Americans — all slipping in through our incredibly accessible and porous Southern border. Apprehensions have included illegals from the Sudan, Iraq, and even Iran.”

Hillary Clinton, who wants to return to the White House at any cost, is unconcerned. The rest of us better be.


Prez candidates vie for deprived, minority status

April 16, 2015

Tea and crumpets lose out to tortillas, chitlins, latkes, and fry bread

Among 2016 American office seekers a new absurdity is taking hold.  It has suddenly become déclassé to be white or privileged. The need to rid oneself of such foul roots has become as necessary as wiping dog droppings off the soles of your crocodile Gucci’s before venturing into a grande maison.  

Presidential candidates are stumbling over themselves to find a shred of convincing minority status to make themselves more appealing to the voters who put Barack Obama in office —- twice.

If they don’t have actual deprivation credentials, they willingly manufacture them. Thus white-bread, blue-blood candidates like Jeb Bush —- whose mother attended elite schools and can trace her family roots back to President Franklin Pierce —- “mistakenly” registered to vote in 2009 in Florida listing his ethnicity as Hispanic. He also forgot his father’s heritage.  The 41st President George H.W. Bush traces his family back to American colonists, attended the tony Phillips Academy in Andover Massachusetts and followed his own father to Yale.

Now BuzzFeed News is reporting that Hillary Clinton —- whose vocal dexterity enables her to emulate what she regards as a “black accent” at will —– has devised her own bogus heritage saying “all of my grandparents, you know, came over here.”  Videos and documentation on BuzzFeed reveal an entirely different set of facts.

“Her grandparents always spoke about the immigrant experience and, as a result she has always thought of them as immigrants,” a Clinton spokesman attempted to feed BuzzFeed News.

Since Hillary’s lie was laid bare, that equally deceptive answer should settle the deliberate pretense, or so she hopes.

Hillary will do whatever she thinks it takes to sway votes her way. CBS News reported that while campaigning for a U.S. senate seat in 1999, she even contrived a Jewish grandfather in New York City where she thought such a revelation could help her garner votes. Max Rosenberg was later revealed as her grandmother’s second husband with no blood line connecting him to the desperately hilarious Hillary.

Although Jeb Bush’s outlandish ethnic claim appears to be an anomaly among Republicans, Democrat woman have cornered the market on such bizarre declarations. As far back as 1986, while she was still a professor at the University of Texas Law School, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren intentionally requested special treatment by falsely self-identifying as a “Minority Law Teacher.” Breitbart fills in the gaping holes of her absurd story alleging Native American status. 

This morning Wayne Allyn Root, writing for Townhall compares Hillary to Richard Nixon calling her “Tricky Dicky Hillary.” The comparison is unfair to Nixon —- a Quaker who was raised in a family with five boys that barely scraped by, in a 900-square foot home his father built from a mail-order kit.  Nixon didn’t have to contrive a hardscrabble history.

Going into this campaign season, we’re going to need very large scoreboards to keep track of the impoverished candidates and their ethnic whoppers.
