AZ Republic’s front page: Blatant trickery:on display

June 29, 2017

Employing an over-sized front page graphic and all caps headline, the Arizona Republic reports on a “FIGHT OVER FAMILY PLANNING FUNDS.” The report bemoans the fact that Gov. Doug Ducey and the state legislature have united in an effort to defund Planned Parenthood Arizona.  The Arizona group receives $4.5 million in taxpayer dollars as its portion of federal “family planning” funds. Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest provider of abortions.

Not a single PP facility is equipped with mammography equipment or staffed by radiologists to provide women with essential breast cancer screenings. Women are referred to radiological centers to receive those services, exactly as their family doctors or gynecologists would do. Despite ample evidence to the contrary, the newspaper bogusly refers to Planned Parenthood sites as “community clinics,” making them appear to be in league with family practice physicians where you take the kids for routine inoculations, ear infections and casts for broken bones. Dad doesn’t hop over to Planned Parenthood for relief from knee pain or prostate exams.

Planned Parenthood’s mission is not health care, but something far more odious.

Yet national Planned Parenthood receives approximately $500 million a year in taxpayer funding, according to this 2015 General Accountability Office report. The report covers the fiscal years 2010 through 2012, so it’s reasonable to expect the 2017 funding exceeds that amount.

These were the roots of Margaret Sanger, the notorious eugenics proponent who started Planned Parenthood, with facilities strategically placed in low income immigrant or black neighborhoods in the early 1900’s. Her mission was to eradicate those she referred to as “human weeds.”

VP Pence calls Limbaugh’s show to defend budget deal

May 3, 2017

Rush Limbaugh to Vice President Mike Pence:

“If I’m the Democrats, $21 billion, 15 billion for defense that was not originally authorized, that’s a small price to pay for continuing to fund refugee resettlement, continuing to fund Planned Parenthood, continuing to fund sanctuary cities, continuing to fund the EPA, and not build the wall. The Democrats clearly think this is a big win, and they’re confident they can block Trump’s agenda after this spending bill for the rest of Trump’s term. There isn’t anything of the president’s agenda in this budget, and people are beginning to ask, when’s that gonna happen? If you’re gonna shut it down in September, why not now?”

“If this is what happens, Mr. Vice President, why vote Republican? What is the point of voting Republican if the Democrats are gonna continue to win practically 95% of their objectives, such as in this last budget deal?”

The transcript of the entire conversation which took place Tuesday. is here.

Limbaugh echoes other prominent conservative media personalities in questioning the budget, which is viewed as a giveaway to Democrats. Meanwhile, devious House Speaker Paul Ryan refers to this charade as a “Pro-GOP game changer.” In our view it’s only a “game changer” if the players are looking to throw the game to the opposition.


Jeff Flake impersonates a Republican as reelection nears

May 2, 2017

Monday’s mail held quite a surprise. There was a letter from someone passing himself off as Jeff Flake asking for money for an upcoming reelection campaign. Jeff Flake, you will recall, is Arizona’s slippery junior senator serving with John McCain, now attempting to persuade Arizona Republicans that he represents our interests.

The missive begins with these words, “President Obama and his team spent a lot of time over the past eight years using executive orders to grow the federal government — and now we are working around the clock to make it smaller.”

Bashing Obama, he omits the fact that he took great pride in being a member of Barack Obama’s basketball team and traveling to unusual locales with the Democrat president — including Kenya as the sole Republican, and accompanying him to Communist Cuba to normalize relations with repressive dictator Raul Castro.

Flake then advises that he “had the privilege to meet both privately with Judge Gorsuch and as a member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary” attempting to take credit for President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court appointment. What Jeff Flake neglects to mention is his zealous, but failed advocacy for fast-tracking the confirmation of Obama’s lame duck Democrat nominee Merrick Garland to the U.S. Supreme Court to fill the seat of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.

Jeff demonstrated his Flaky side when questioning President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch, turning serious business into a joke. (video) No one has ever accused the perpetually smirking Flake of being an intellectual, but this display of foolishness gave new meaning to the word embarrassing.

Flake also broke with Senate Republicans, voting with the Democrats to confirm lawyer William H. Orrick III, a high dollar Obama campaign bundler, to the U.S. District Court. Last week, Orrick blocked President Trump’s executive order to withhold federal funding from sanctuary cities refusing to cooperate with immigration enforcement. Orrick was not unknown to Jeff Flake. He worked at the Department of Justice when the agency filed a lawsuit against the state of Arizona and was involved in coordinating the Obama administration’s argument against SB 1070.

Judge Orrick issued a temporary restraining order against the Center for Medical Progress, a pro-life group that released undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials and abortionists haggling over lunch for dollar amounts in the sale of aborted human body parts.

Jeff Flake is a dedicated amnesty proponent, who worked with McCain to orchestrate the Gang of Eight amnesty scheme with two other RINOs and four of the furthest left Democrats in the U.S. Senate. This betrayal came immediately after he was safely ensconced in the senate, having won by 3 slim percentage points. Count on the fact that this duplicitous bill will be revived if Flake is returned to the senate. Don’t be conned by the tricky rhetoric that “our immigration system is broken.” The only thing broken is the will to enforce it — a nightmare scenario in these perilous times. When Flake says, “We must quickly and thoughtfully secure our borders,” read between the lines. To Flake “thoughtfully” is amnesty, without using the career killing word. And America does not have borders.  We have a single border surrounding our entire (contiguous) country.

In the solicitation letter Jeff Flake portrays himself as a supporter of President Trump, another colossal lie. Jeff Flake’s refusal to endorse Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was followed by his repeated declaration that he would not vote for Trump. In fact, he haughtily declared Trump “can’t and shouldn’t win.  Not voting for Trump put Flake firmly in Hillary Clinton’s column.

Flake has long demonstrated he has no core. Prior to his political career, Flake worked as a lobbyist and registered foreign agent for Rossing Uranium — one of the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel — which operates a mine in the African country of Namibia where Flake did his LDS mission. Flake earned a substantial salary opening doors in D.C. and promoting the firm which had deep financial ties to Iran. When it benefited him as a candidate, Flake deftly switched his position on Iran.

Flake nearly threw the left-leaning Arizona Republic into apoplexy, causing it to editorially declare Flake to be a mere “politician” — no longer a “statesman,” when he exhibited a campaign related change of heart on legalizing millions of illegal aliens. It was just a short-term move in order to secure votes. Those on the editorial board need not have wasted a moment’s concern.  He reverted to his former position immediately after the votes were counted.

When your solicitation letter arrives, consider using the enclosed postage paid envelope to send it back to him — empty — replicating the promises he’s made.

Reich claims conservatives organized Berkeley riots

February 4, 2017

If you’ve ever doubted that liberals will do or say anything to conceal who and what they are, including blaming their outrageous behavior and criminal acts on conservatives, watch this video featuring Robert Reich, who was the secretary of labor during Bill Clinton’s administration, worked on Barack Obama’s transition team, and is now employed as a UC Berkeley professor teaching public policy.

Wednesday night, masked Berkeley students doing a good job of emulating fascists, set fires, destroyed property, hurled Molotov cocktails and engaged in bloody attacks on those they deemed Trump supporters, to prevent Breitbart author Milo Yiannopoulos, an invited guest, from speaking on campus. Though there was over $100,000 worth of property damage, no arrests were made. The speech was cancelled.

Reich, rife with conspiracy theories, appeared on CNN with Tonight’s Don Lemon offering his bizarre version of the chaos that took place on the university campus. He claimed that conservatives masterminded the recent violent mayhem at Berkeley to make liberals appear opposed to free speech.

Like any good liberal Reich supports unfettered abortion of innocent preborn human babies, but opposes the death penalty for those who commit heinous crimes.

On CNN Robert Reich declared the anti-Trump riots on campus were actually a right-wing plot to delegitimize liberals.

“I was there for part of last night, and I know what I saw and those people were not Berkeley students,” Reich claimed. “Those people were outside agitators. I have never seen them before.”

That could be due to the fact that at 4’10” in height, he’s eye level with their knees.

“There’s rumors that they actually were right-wingers. They were a part of a kind of group that was organized and ready to create the kind of tumult and danger you saw that forced the police to cancel the event,” Reich insisted. “So Donald Trump, when he says Berkeley doesn’t respect free speech rights, that’s a complete distortion of the truth.”

“You think it’s a strategy by [Milo Yiannopoulos] or right-wingers?” host Don Lemon incredulously asked

“I wouldn’t bet against it,” Reich responded. “I saw these people. They all looked very -– almost paramilitary. They were not from the campus. I don’t want to say factually, but I’ve heard there was some relationship here between these people and the right-wing movement that is affiliated with Breitbart News.”

Yup.


John McCain’s deception exposed by Nat’l Pro-Life Alliance

August 16, 2016

Many conservatives found a letter from National Pro-Life Alliance in their mailboxes Monday. It specifically calls out AZ Sen. John McCain for repeatedly blocking pro-life initiatives. The letter, signed by Jenni Harris, the group’s executive director, cuts right to the chase. She explains that the Life at Conception Act which would legislatively bypass Roe v. Wade by using the Supreme Court’s own language against itself, now has a record 164 co-sponsors in both the U.S. House and Senate — including four of the five Republican Congressmen from Arizona. Harris says, “As I write this letter, John McCain is not among them, despite multiple meetings and calls to his staff.”

The letter further states, “In fact, Sen. McCain is the only candidate in the Senate Republican Primary who has not answered the Republican candidate survey.”

McCain’s deception on life issues is nothing new. May 15, 2016 Seeing Red AZ posted “Dr. Kelli Ward vs. McCain on life issues,” which includes a illuminating video displaying McCain’s bizarre view of the pro-life movement, in which he refers to the ending of a perfect and healthy pre-born human life as an “unpleasant….procedure,” though he made it clear he didn’t want to restrict them. 

Dr. Kelli Ward, a conservative former two-term state senator, military wife,  mother of three and a family practice physician — who is adamantly pro-life — is challenging the decades-long incumbent McCain — running for another 6-year term at age 80. Ward rightly questions the National Right to Life endorsement given to McCain despite his appalling record.

In July 2010 Seeing Red AZ posted, “McCain refuses to answer pro-life questionnaire.” In 2007, John McCain called for returning to the pre-Reagan Republican Party Platform which did not include the pro-life plank. 

Hillary Clinton, referred to by John McCain as a ‘rock star he could support,“ and portrayed in the liberal media as a doting grandmother, isn’t ashamed to say that she supports aborting a baby even on its due date. During an appearance on ‘The View,” Hillary did not flinch from her support of the U.S. Supreme Court’s imposed policy of abortion-on-demand for the full nine months of pregnancy enshrined in Roe v. Wade. She was asked: “At what point does someone have constitutional rights, and are you saying that a child, on its due date, just hours before delivery, still has no constitutional rights?” Hillary’s swift reply? “Under our law that is the case. .I support Roe v. Wade.’ (Video)

By his words, actions and associations, John McCain continues to lie by declaring himself pro-life. The facts tell a different story.

Once again McCain expects to lure us all aboard his Forked Tongue Express. Vote for Dr. Kelli Ward and we can put this embarrassing chapter of Arizona history behind us.


Dr. Kelli Ward vs. McCain on life issues

May 15, 2016

Abortion is not an “unpleasant procedure,” for the baby, Sen. McCain. It’s death.

Nate Madden, writing for Conservative Review exposes John McCain’s squishy position on the fundamental matter of life in his commentary, “McCain Challenger Hits Back at Pro-Life Group for Endorsing Incumbent.”

Dr. Kelli Ward, a conservative former two-term state senator, mother and physician — who is adamantly pro-life — is challenging the decades-long incumbent McCain, running for another 6-year term at age 80. Ward rightly questions the National Right to Life endorsement given to McCain despite his dubious record.

In 2010 Seeing Red AZ posted, “McCain refuses to answer pro-life questionnaire.” In 2007, John McCain called for returning to a Republican Party Platform which did not include the pro-life plank.  

Listen closely as McCain, summoning up the weakest of adjectives to describe the gruesome death of a pre-born human baby, refers to abortion an “unpleasant procedure.”

 “But we all know, and it’s obvious, that if we repeal Roe v. Wade tomorrow, thousands of young American women will be performing illegal and dangerous operations. I want us to be a party of inclusion. I think that we can all be members of the Republican Party whether we are pro-choice or pro-life because we share the same goal, and that is the elimination of abortion, because it’s an unpleasant and terrible procedure. We think, I think, that we must go back to the Platform of 1980 and 1984 and we include people who have this specific disagreement who share our same goals.”

 Do these equivocating words sound like those of a candidate who is deserving of the National Right to Life endorsement? Give NRTL a call and ask them what they were thinking.

This is Dr. Kelli Ward. It’s time for a change. 

 


Aided by Republicrats Obama recrafts judiciary

February 16, 2016

AZ Sens. McCain, Kyl and now Flake continually vote to confirm liberals

With the unexpected death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia over the weekend, America now faces the possibility of the balance of the court being dramatically altered. Barack Obama, who nominated liberals Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan to the high court, obviously salivates at the opportunity to tilt the court irretrievably leftward.

Republicans now control the senate, where confirmation votes take place. But don’t let that fact give you a sense of security.

2011 saw Jon Kyl gin up support to install yet another liberal on the 9th Circuit — Federal Judge Mary Murguia, whose twin sister Janet is the President and CEO of the National Council of La Raza — “the Race” — a group whose two-sentence motto is chilling to everyone who values equal rights for all: “For the Race everything. Outside the Race, nothing.”  Murguia was nominated to the appellate bench by Obama.  Among the honored guests at the investiture ceremony were none other than Jon Kyl and then-Homeland Security chieftain Janet Napolitano, AZ’s leftist former governor who said with a straight face, “Our border has never been more secure.” Kyl and McCain both voted for Murguia’s confirmation.

In 2012, both of Arizona’s senators stepped front and center supporting the nomination of Andrew Hurwitz, a politically connected, pro-abortion Democrat and AZ Supreme Court Justice — aiding his ascent to the to the already radically left 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The daily newspaper was so enthralled, it editorially championed retiring Kyl as a “statesman.”

This endorsement-happy pair also voted in support of the confirmation of Obama’s hand-picked selectee for U.S. Attorney General — the scandal plagued Eric Holder, who ultimately resigned under fire. Twenty-one Republicans voted against Holder, but not these two enablers. They even voted in support of the nomination of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. Numerous searches failed to verify the duo’s non-roll call vote on Napolitano, but given their proclivity for supporting leftwing appointees, the greater surprise would be if they didn’t approve her nomination. There is little doubt the unusual unrecorded vote was intended to provide cover.

While they thought you weren’t paying attention, Arizona’s slippery and lowest regarded U.S. Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, were busying themselves on the banks of the Potomac with the confirmation of Obama’s liberal picks for federal judges.

On Jan. 11, the Arizona duo voted with the Democrats to confirm Columbian-born Luis Felipe Restrepo to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. Obama is fast tracking the former ACLU prisoners’ rights lawyer up from a district court post to which he was confirmed in 2013.

Then on Jan. 19, Wilhelmina Marie Wright, was confirmed as U.S. District Judge for the District of Minnesota. McCain, soon to be 80 and running for his sixth six-year term, shrewdly backed off of that confirmation, though Jeff Flake abandoned Republicans to approve her nomination. The vote can be seen here. Wright’s confirmation brings the total of appellate judges appointed by Obama to 56.

In his Conservative Review commentary, Senior Editor Daniel Horowitz writes “Senate GOP Must Not Confirm Any More Obama Judges.”

“The notion that Republicans would vote to confirm more Obama judges defies logic on so many levels.  This is one of the few areas where they have no excuse or lack of power to actually use their control of the Senate for good purposes.  Moreover, by confirming more Obama judges, they will not only further exacerbate the growing judicial time bomb of anti-constitutional case-law, but will also prevent the next Republican president from filling those vacancies.” 

Ask yourself…if Democrats controlled the senate, would they vote to confirm conservative federal court nominees the way liberals get a pass from Republican senators? You know the answer.  It’s time to clean house…er…senate.

Democrats balked at Samuel A. Alito Jr., with only four endorsing him in a 58-to-42 vote in January 2006. Barack Obama, then an Illinois Senator joined 24 other Democrats to try to filibuster the nomination of now-Justice Samuel Alito — in a case of pure partisanship, posturing and brinksmanship — something Dems swear they don’t engage in.
