Dems shift strategy: Dump “quid pro quo,” replace with “extortion”

November 12, 2019

“We’ve got to get off this “quid pro quo thing” and compare Trump to a mob boss”

Democrats have a tricky new scheme afoot in their effort to overturn the 2016 election that so enraged them. The latest twist is to alter language, replacing words they regard as too esoteric for their minions, as they launch a baseless impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Jim Himes, a leftist congressman you’ve likely never heard of, shamelessly tells “Meet the Press” host, Chuck Todd, that Latin isn’t the way to generate support from the hoi polloi base of commoners that put elitists like him in office. They are dumping the term “quid pro quo” in favor of “extortion and bribery” which resonates with the low information Dem base who still watch reruns of “The Godfather.”

Himes is a gun confiscator, pro-abortion and open border, earning him an “F” rating from Conservative Review. He serves with Sen. Richard Blumenthal who deceitfully attempted to pass himself off as a combat veteran and was still elected by the reliable leftists in Connecticut.

This is the loaded question put to Himes* by network interviewer Todd, and Himes’ response:

CHUCK TODD: Do you feel as if that word (quid pro quo) does not penetrate the seriousness with what happened?

REP. JIM HIMES: Well I have two problems with quid pro quo. Number one, when you’re trying to persuade the American people of something that is really pretty simple, which is that the President acted criminally and extorted in the way a mob boss would extort somebody, a vulnerable foreign country, it’s probably best not to use Latin words to explain it. But the other thing I object to is that this is where the Republicans went. Extortion doesn’t require a “you give me this, and I’ll give you that” kind of quid pro quo. It simply requires using your muscle to get something that you don’t have a right to. So look, and by the way, of course the crowning absurdity here is now they’re all pretty much admitting because Ambassador Sondland has refreshed his recollection, they’re all basically admitting there was a quid pro quo. But gosh it wasn’t that bad, it was exactly the same thing as Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton. So look we gotta get off this quid pro quo thing because it’s complicated, they’ve already attested to the fact that it occurred and what we’re dealing with here is corruption, abuse of power in a way that damaged American national security.

On his own Twitter page, Himes goes full-fledge urbane, describing himself with pretentious, Viking-like mead making imagery and referring to himself as an “apiarist,” rather than a beekeeper:

“Connecticut Congressman. Reader. Runner. Swimmer. Apiarist. And I make maple syrup. And mead.”

Rep. Himes is one heck of an impressive guy! He reads, swims and makes his own honey-based joy juice, all while contorting language in an effort to bring down the President of the United States. But Himes remains compliant. This language shift is the latest scheme the Dems are employing in unison. They are willing marionettes, with Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff pulling the strings.

Mitt outed as narcissistic self-defending twitter “lurker”

October 22, 2019

Now that Utah Sen. Mitt Romney has been uncloaked as “Pierre Delecto,” a nom de plume he affected on his surreptitious, self-adoring twitter account, the disclosure begged for more answers.

When the deceit was discovered and he was asked if he was, in fact, Pierre Delecto, he embarrassingly answered in the affirmative, though not in English. Mitt Romney, whose Michigan governor father, George, was born in Mexico, didn’t respond in Spanish, either.  Nope.  He went into full Pierre Delecto mode, admitting, “C’est moi,”  French for “it’s me.” Romney was forced to confess he used the sham account and false name to defend himself against detractors.

A bit of checking revealed his fluency was due to the 2 1/2 years in the 60s he spent in France while fulfilling his Church mission, giving him the ability to respond as his alter ego Pierre Delecto would. Pierre likes Mitt.  He really likes Mitt.

The pro-abortion and open border supporting former Governor of Massachusetts was so inept, he lost the 2008 GOP presidential nomination to John McCain. In 2012, he lost to incumbent president Barack Obama. After vilifying Donald Trump, he came begging for the Secretary of State position when Trump was elected in 2016.  President Trump let him grovel, but was too smart to bring Pierre Delecto into his cabinet, to undermine him and his policies.

Facts expose Daniel McCarthy’s distortions of Sen. Martha McSally

September 24, 2019

McCain RINOs donating to Dem Mark Kelly

Arizona voters listening to U.S. Senate wannabe Daniel McCarthy would be led to believe that John McCain is alive and well, wearing lipstick, earrings, sporting a dark shoulder-length haircut and campaigning to keep his senate seat.

That’s the misrepresentation the abysmally lacking in credentials 34-year-old Daniel McCarthy, who is challenging Arizona’s sole Republican U.S. Senator, Martha McSally, would have voters accept.

The Washington Examiner, in a must-read report, puts those claims to rest as it illuminates high dollar McCain donors who have now switched their allegiance to Democrat Mark Kelly, the husband of former U. S. Rep. Gabby Giffords.  

The switch makes sense since John McCain was as left-leaning as any Democrat.

This realignment of Republicrat John McCain’s former donors with leftist, Second Amendment restrictionist Mark Kelly clearly defines McSally as the Constitutionalist in the race. Kelly uses a load of double talk to conceal his actual agenda. The group he and Giffords co-founded  which Kelly refers to as a “gun safety organization” is anything but. It has gone though several name changes and mergers and is now known as the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. Its political arm, Giffords PAC, raises money, coaches and then endorses anti-Second Amendment candidates in key races, and — in its own words — runs campaigns to “shine a spotlight on elected officials who support dangerous gun laws.”

Like his friend Barack Obama, Kelly, a dedicated leftist, is pro-abortion, limp on border issues, wants to impose Green New Deal federal standards estimated to cost $93 trillion to address climate change and supports unsustainable government provided universal health for all. 

According to Federal Election Commission data, Kelly is significantly surpassing the fundraising all national senate candidates of both parties. He is aided by Socialist multi-billionaire George Soros, who despises the idea of national borders. Soros’ Act Blue has been hosting D.C. fundraisers for Kelly.

Inexperienced and gaffe-prone Daniel McCarthy’s ego driven entry into this race will force Republican incumbent Sen. Martha McSally into an expensive primary and effectively guarantee the political extremist Mark Kelly a senate seat. Don’t be conned.

AZ jury awards Planned Parenthood informant $3M

August 20, 2019

Victory for life in Arizona! 

It’s always been mystifying that a group that exists primarily to slaughter pre-born human babies could call itself Planned Parenthood. The abhorrent concept is analogous to Auschwitz, a notorious Nazi death camp, blandly referring to itself a care center.

There is some good news, however, concerning the abortion mill. LifeSiteNews reports:

An Arizona jury has unanimously awarded $3 million in damages to a former Planned Parenthood director who was fired after reporting an abortionist’s illegal conduct and high complication rates, falsification of affidavits and patient records, incomplete abortions, and failure to report statutory rape.

Mayra Rodriguez, who ran three Planned Parenthood clinics in Arizona and worked for the organization for 17 years, sued after being wrongfully terminated from her position in October 2017 for repeatedly reporting that Planned Parenthood was endangering the health and safety of its patients, according to And Then There Were None (ATTWN), a non-profit that helps former abortion workers leave the industry.

Rodriguez’ lawyer, Tim Casey, hadn’t asked the jury for any dollar amount during the trial. Yet after only three hours of deliberation, the jury unanimously awarded her $3 million in damages following the two-week trial, which ended last Friday, August 16, 2019.

Bryan Howard, president of Planned Parenthood Arizona, was reported to be “disappointed” with the verdict.

Just like Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood director turned pro-life advocate, Rodriguez won Employee of the Year the year before she left. Johnson now runs ATTWN.

 “I’ve stared down Planned Parenthood in court. I know how hard it is watching your friends lie about you,” said Johnson. “It’s always good to take down Planned Parenthood but it’s not without hurt.”

Johnson’s conversion story is told in the movie. “Unplanned,” which as of August 7, 2019 made $18.9 million after being produced with a $6 million budget, according to boxofficemojo.com. The movie just became available on DVD and was the top selling film on Amazon on the day of its release.

“When Mayra came to And Then There Were None with her incredible story, I felt solidarity with her, having gone through a similar situation when I worked for Planned Parenthood. Standing with her through the trial and rejoicing in the ultimate victory has been amazing,” said Johnson.

The abuses Rodriguez documented are serious. Complications from abortions can result in severe, permanent health problems for women — even death. Incomplete abortions can similarly cause serious health problems for the mothers in whose uteruses parts of their aborted unborn babies are left. ATTWN didn’t specify how old the minor was whose sexual relationship with an adult Planned Parenthood covered up, but the age of consent in Arizona is 18.

And Then There Were None, is a ministry founded by Abby Johnson that has helped more than 500 abortion workers leave their jobs.

Abby Johnson will be the keynote speaker at the next Arizona for Life March & Rally on January 18, 2020. Find out more about Arizona’s biggest pro-life event here.


Sinema’s new concern for families? Rewind the film

August 1, 2019

According to this press release, Arizona’s leftist Sen. Kyrsten Sinema has not only teamed up with Louisiana Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy, M.D., she has taken a dive on her former stance regarding mothers with young children. 

This is a summary of theirBipartisan solutionto help new parents, complete with government subsidies and no restrictions on how parents can utilize the advanced funds of up to $5,000. They’ve even collaborated on a booklet filled withFrequently asked questions.”

Their generosity with our tax dollars is literally dripping off the page. Parents who already receive paid leave through their employer or state could continue to do so, forgoing the new benefit and continuing to receive their full yearly Child Tax Credit. Low-income families that do not qualify for the full, refundable Child Tax Credit could, under the senators’ bipartisan plan, claim a benefit adjusted to 100 percent wage replacement for 12 weeks of work. For those families, the proposal also extends the 10-year repayment schedule to 15 years.

When not blatantly lying about her homeless childhood to achieve maximum impact or hurling coarse insults, Sinema, an early supporter of Obamacare, learned to turn a phrase for optimum benefit:

“I used to say that I wanted universal health-care coverage in Arizona, which went over like a ton of bricks. Turns out, Arizonans hear the word ‘universal’ and think ‘socialism’— or ‘pinko commie.’ But when I say that I want all Arizonans to have access to affordable, quality health care, Arizonans agree wholeheartedly. Same basic idea, different language.”

Her documented ties to the Communist Party were revealed by Breitbart. The National Republican Senatorial Committee posted these videos of statements Sinema has actually made.

Sinema, who refused to take her oath of office on the Bible, scores 100 percent alignment with Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider and supporter of late term abortions, viewed by rational people as infanticide.

As a member of the AZ legislature — who ran and lost as a Green party candidate before becoming a Democrat — and an early supporter of same-sex marriage, the acknowledged bi-sexual mockingly blasted women who devote themselves to their families rather than working outside the home. Her crude comment was:

“These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f**k are we really talking about here?”

Following the spirit of unity Dems claim to embrace, Sinema derided conservatives as “Neanderthals.”

Sen. Bill Cassidy, elected as a Republican, is a medical doctor who has been in D.C. since 2008. He didn’t just fall off the turnip truck. What would cause him to form this bewildering alliance?


Dying AZ Republic draws life trying to slay US Rep. Paul Gosar

May 22, 2019

Draculesque newspaper sustained by drawing conservative blood 

U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-CD-4) is an unapologetic conservative. As a dentist, his specialty was teeth, but as a congressman, he’s had to learn about fangs.

The feeble, Hillary-supporting Arizona Republic, hemorrhaging subscriptions and narrowly escaping yet another hostile takeover, will fall on its sword promoting an anti-Trump, open borders, restrictions on Second Amendment rights and abortion-on-demand agenda as it insults its few remaining readers.

As it gasps its last breaths, the newspaper now has Paul Gosar in its cross-hairs. Like Bram Stoker‘s Dracula, it sustains itself by feeding on blood. Laurie Roberts, the former sob saga columnist has been shuffled into the conservative slayer position. The emaciated, radically left newspaper got a life enhancing transfusion when it oversaw the election of Kyrsten Sinema to the U.S. Senate and five of our nine congressional seats shift to the Dem camp. Republicans David Schweikert (CD-6) and Debbie Lesko (CD-8) also need our support, as the left is determined to turn the red state of Arizona a deep blue.

Conservative Review lists Paul Gosar, along with Arizona CD-5 U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs, among the Top 25 Conservatives in the nation, awarding them both a Liberty Score “A” rating.

Longtime newspaper employees have been unceremoniously dumped, including Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Steve Benson, whose parent-company Gannett could no longer afford. The daily now functions with ASU Cronkite J School students working out of their cars, sans editors.

Gannett Co. Inc.’s stock has been in a downward freefall. Yahoo! Finance exposes the excessive salaries of the newspaper’s execs in the last paragraph of the article that refers to the “melting ice cube of a business.”

In January we postedAZ Republic: homeless vagrant on borrowed time,” detailing how the 10-story building and parking garage the Republic once called home has been sold, with a lease back arrangement from the real estate company that purchased the newspaper’s properties — obviously not the model of success.

Unable to ignore the inescapable truth that it is on life support, the AZ Republic is committed to taking down conservatives. Don’t let that happen. Get involved. Become a Precinct Committeeman. The 2020 election is right around the corner.


AZ Republic engages in anti-Trump abortion deceit

May 20, 2019

On May 18, President Trump tweeted, “As most people know, and for those who would like to know, I am strongly Pro-Life, with the three exceptions — Rape, Incest and protecting the Life of the mother — the same position taken by Ronald Reagan,” President Trump.

News of that statement was buried in the single page USA Today insert in the failing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic.

Awarded prominent placement on the falsely named “Opinions” page, which carries echoing drumbeat letters, is a letter comparing President Trump to Henry VIII, who the letter writer asserts, “had his wives beheaded for not bearing a child.”

The oversize headline placed on her foolish letter is: IN TRUMP’S ERA,THE RIGHT GOES EXTREME ON ABORTION POLICY.”

While President Trump holds a pro-life stance, he has drawn a distinction between himself and the recently passed Alabama bill signed by Gov. Kay Ivey. Under the new law, doctors in the state face felony jail time up to 99 years if convicted, although a woman would not be held criminally liable for having an abortion. The only exception to the law would be when the pregnancy endangers the woman’s health or there is a fetal abnormality. HB314 / ACT 189 can be read here.

Georgia and Missouri have recently passed similar laws. They are intended to mount a Supreme Court challenge to Roe v. Wade which has resulted in the slaughter of millions of American babies since it was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court January 22, 1973.
