Kyrsten Sinema’s strange bedfellows

March 27, 2019

As a self-declared bi-sexual, it’s a given Kyrsten Sinema — Arizona’s most outrageously unlikely U.S. Senator — has had more than a few strange bedfellows, but chances are she outdid herself Tuesday. What’s more, she engaged in her reckless behavior in the senate chamber — In front of witnesses, no less. To compound matters, she forged ahead without so much as a blush.

Sinema joined with Republicans to vote against the extremist Democrat “Green New Deal,” a brainchild of New York Socialist U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, who has declared that Americans must radically alter our lifestyles, modes of transportation to net zero emissions, rebuild our homes and commercial buildings to comply with intrusive green standards to achieve her illusion of GND nirvana or America and the rest of the planet, will be doomed to a prehistoric restoration, sans dinosaurs, within a decade. The extreme proposed legislation also mandates free education, housing, food and economic security for all, without addressing funding.

According to this recent study co-authored by Douglas Holtz-Eakin, the former director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, implementation of the colossal “Green New Deal” could cost as much as $93 trillion, or approximately $600,000 per household. Watch his brief interview with Neil Cavuto.

Forty-three Democrats, including the party’s senate presidential candidates —- Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren —- voted “present” on the cloture vote on S.J. Res.8 avoiding having to sign their names to this far-left issue viewed as one the most radical, dangerous, and destructive policies to ever be considered in the chamber.

Sinema, politically astute when she sees a decided future benefit, bedded down with the Republicans.

Phx’ farcical mayoral election today: Leftists rule

March 12, 2019

Today is Election Day in the City of Phoenix. It’s not just any election, mind you. It’s a Special Election — for mayor. The seat was left open when the former deeply committed mayor, Greg Stanton boogied to run for congress in Congressional District 9, following Kyrsten Sinema’s departure. On his way out the door, Stanton doled out $2.4 Mil of our tax dollars to a La Raza ally. When initially elected mayor, he received a congratulatory call from then-President Barack Obama and his Secretary of Homeland INsecurity, Janet Napolitano — clearly exposing the farce of “non-partisan” city elections.

For her part, Sinema magically ran for, and was elected to, the U.S. Senate — without ever once mentioning her party affiliation.

If you’re wondering about the election today, there’s not much to bother yourself with. Both candidates are Democrats. The only choice is the “conservative” liberal or the straight-up, liberal liberal. It’s all a disgraceful charade. Council District 5 and 8 seats are also on the ballot since those are the seats Valenzuela and Gallego abandoned.

It does sound confusing, but just think of it as Democrat politics as usual. In this case Daniel Valenzuela has political operative friends who have been financing mailers that describe the firefighter unionist and committed liberal as a “conservative,” when nothing could be further from the truth. Moses Sanchez, who ran and lost claiming GOP credentials, has endorsed Valenzuela. He joins other AZ Republicrats Woods and Romley (appropriately at the bottom of the endorsement list) who have made careers of endorsing liberals. Woods recently made good on his longtime promise and re-registered as a Dem, losing his swag. Also among Valenzuela’s endorsers are McCain insiders Robert Delgado and Doug Yonko, both honchos in Cindy Hensley McCain’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship empire.

Kate Gallego, who was the object of incendiary race-baiting when she ran for the city council seat she has abandoned for the mayor’s race, has the better credentials. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Harvard University and earned an MBA from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania — though her endorsements are as radically leftist as Valenzuela’s. Her ex-husband, U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, who she divorced while pregnant with their only child, has gallantly endorsed her candidacy for mayor.

Arizona voters need a scorecard to keep up with the ambitious, reconfigured Democrats and their stranglehold on the city of Phoenix and encroachment on D.C. in the Senate and House.

If you’re up for this, election results can be viewed here. We suggest you watch the on an empty stomach. Polls close at 7 PM.


Kyrsten Sinema, MIA

March 3, 2019

Sinema afflicted with ennui, missing senate votes

Kyrsten Sinema wanted to be in the U. S. Senate so badly, she was willing to alter her persona and tell whopping lies to achieve her goal. She started her incursion into politics as a Green Party candidate, losing state legislative races, before making the switch to the more accommodating Democrat Party. 

Chameleon-like, Sinema recreated herself from a foul mouthed, self declared “bi-sexual” who put May Day greetings in the Communist Worker newspaper, and demeaned stay-at-home mothers, calling them “leeches,” to a soft-spoken candidate, who abandoned a party label, saying she just wanted to solve problems.

So desirous of ascending to the U.S. Senate in 2018, she fabricated a heart-tugging tale about living in an abandoned gas station without electricity and running water as a child.

Her deceit worked.

Now we see she’s not showing up for the job she fought so fervently to be elected to.

This past week she missed the following votes:

Feb. 26, 2019: Confirmation Eric D. Miller, of Washington, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Ninth Circuit (Sinema only senator not voting.)

Feb. 26, 2019: Nomination of Michael J. Desmond, of California, to be Chief Counsel for the Internal Revenue Service and an Assistant General Counsel in the Department of the Treasury (Sinema only senator not voting.)

Feb. 27, 2019: Confirmation of Michael J. Desmond (Sinema one of two not voting.)

Feb. 27, 2019: Nomination of Andrew Wheeler, of Virginia, to be Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (Sinema one of two not voting.)

Feb. 28, 2019: Confirmation of Andrew Wheeler (Sinema only senator not voting.)

Not only did the Hillary Clinton-endorsing Arizona Republic also endorse radical leftist Sinema, it named her “Arizonan of the Year.

Now she’s not even showing up to carry its polluted water. Sinema was otherwise ocupado in New Zealand competing in the Ironman race.


ERA 2019: A solution seeking non-existent problem

February 27, 2019

Competency has long trumped gender as qualifier for women achievers, rendering Equal Rights Amendment irrelevant

As the ERA resurfaces in the Arizona Legislature, and marches on the state capitol are planned, it’s worth examining the facts regarding the need for a constitutional amendment to enshrine equal rights for women.

For the third year in a row, women outnumbered men in law school classrooms across the country in 2018. Ditto medical schools, with higher female enrollment. Women serve in record numbers in congress. In a historic first, Arizona is represented in Washington D.C. by two female U.S. Senators Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema.  Ironically, it was Democrat Sinema who viciously slurred women.

Four of Arizona’s last six governors have been women, dating back to 1988. We were also one of the first states to send a woman to Congress, when Isabella Selmes Greenway won office in 1932. Not only was Sandra Day O’Connor — appointed by President Ronald Reagan — the first woman on the U.S. Supreme Court, but the trailblazing state of Arizona had the first female state Supreme Court Justice, when Lorna Lockwood — born in 1903, in the Arizona territory — ascended to the Arizona Supreme Court.

Justice Lockwood is notable for being the first woman in the nation to become Chief Justice of a state Supreme Court serving in that capacity twice — from 1965 through 1966 and from 1970 through 1971. She passed the bar in 1925 and was a state legislator and Superior Court Judge before ascending to the Arizona Supreme Court in 1960 — paving the nearly identical career path Sandra O’Connor eventually took to the U.S. Supreme Court. O’Connor was elected to both the state legislature and as a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge (prior to the 1974 advent of “merit selection”) before being named to the Supreme Court.

Women are also entrepreneurial. According to these 2017 figures, which have no doubt grown since they were released, more than 11.6 million firms are owned by women, employing nearly 9 million people, and generating $1.7 trillion in sales.

So why is the political left reviving efforts to pass the obviously unnecessary Equal Rights Amendment? Women have served in Presidential Cabinets, as spokespersons and advisers. Female Democrat 2020 presidential aspirants are already outnumbering their male counterparts.

Women obviously are not in need of amendment to ensure equal rights. The rights have been in place for decades as Arizonans are well aware, exemplified by Justice Lockwood, who passed the bar 93 years ago, beginning her stellar career path.

In 1998, five Arizona women known as the ‘Fab Five’ were simultaneously elected to the state’s top government positions. Governor Jane Dee Hull; Secretary of State Betsey Bayless; Attorney General Janet Napolitano; Treasurer Carol Springer; and Superintendent of Public Instruction Lisa Graham-Keegan.

Soon after statehood in 1912, Arizona amended the state constitution to grant women’s voting rights and ensure their ability to hold public office. That occurred a full eight years before the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting women’s rights.

What exactly would the ratification of the obviously antiquated notion of an Equal Rights Amendment accomplish in 2019?


Dem donor Ed Buck, 2 dead men and counting & Update

January 10, 2019

The news has been rife with coverage of Ed Buck, an LGBTQ activist and Democrat donor, who has a strange penchant for having men die in his Hollywood apartment. Law enforcement officials have opened an investigation into the most recent death, which comes a year-and-a-half after Gemmel Moore, 26, a black gay male escort, died in 2017 of a methamphetamine overdose in Buck’s home. Moore was described as “homeless” by his mother. The latest man to die in Buck’s home is 55-year-old Timothy Dean, another black man not known to have been a drug user.

This Los Angeles Times article citing the coroner’s report describes the bizarre circumstances surrounding Moore’s death, reporting, “Buck was found with a dead, naked house guest who died of a methamphetamine overdose while watching male porn on a mattress on Buck’s living room floor.” Inconceivably, no charges were filed against Buck in that death after the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office found insufficient evidence against him. They are now reinvestigating the death. 

Candidates Buck deemed worthy of his generosity included former President Obama, 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Arizona’s newly elected chameleon Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, the first self-declared bisexual elected to the U.S. Senate.  She previously represented AZ Congressional District 9. Before that, Sinema was a twice losing Green Party candidate for the state legislature, finally winning a seat when she switched allegiance to the Democrat Party.

Buck, 64, whose actual name is Edward Bernard Peter Buckmelter, is far more than just a casual Arizona political participant. In 1987, shortly after Gov. Evan Mecham’s inauguration, Buck had already organized a recall against the conservative businessman. Mecham won the governor’s race after a momentous primary victory he was belittled for entering. He trounced the stunned longtime Arizona House Speaker Burton Barr who was heavily favored to win in the three-way race that also included an affluent former Democrat who ran as an Independent.

Galahad Flake defends Sinema

January 8, 2019

The news that jobless RINOcrat Jeff Flake has donned his armor— not to set out to seek the Holy Grail—- but to defend the honor of Kyrsten Sinema, should not come as surprise. Flake is engaging in whatever provocative actions he can to reignite his relevancy just long enough to land a job. What better way to catch the attention of leftist networks CNN or MSNBC, where he could inveigle permanent employment as a renegade Republican?                               

Flake’s days of trying to pass himself off as a conservative are long gone.  In its place is the bared provocateur auditioning for a full-time perch on a left-wing network where he reliably bashed President Trump as a prized turncoat guest.

Arizona’s GOP National Committeeman Bruce Ash, currently the object of intra-party conservative wrath, was obviously trying to hone his credentials by commenting that Sinema looked more like “Senator Madonna” than the “Senator Barbie Doll” image that filled her 2018 senate campaign ads.

Ash noted that Sinema’s politics and positions will “lean further left than the dumb ass people on our side ever imagined,” when they left their ballots blank in the race between Sinema and Republican candidate Martha McSally, “which led the way to her being seated in the U.S. Senate this past week.”

Unemployed Flake responded with this tweet:

No, @kyrstensinema won because she ran a good race and had a message that resonated with Arizona’s voters. The sooner we Republicans recognize this, the sooner we will we be in a position to win the next contest.

Complement bestowing Flake neglected to say that Sinema never mentioned her party affiliation in her deceit-based campaign. Both Sinema and Martha McSally now hold Arizona’s two U.S. Senate seats. After Jon Kyl stepped down to resume his lucrative D.C. lobbying gig, Gov. Ducey appointed Martha McSally to fill the seat previously occupied by John McCain.

And Ash? In 2016, Seeing Red AZ reported on the lunacy that defines Bruce Ash. With the passage of time, he has only become more unhinged.


Fem Dems take the term “swearing-in” seriously

January 5, 2019

On her first day in office, newly elected U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, (DS-MI) began her career with a vulgar assault (video) on President Donald Trump.

Speaking at a D.C. reception hosted by the radically leftist, Soros-funded  group MoveOn.org, the Muslim congresswoman related an exchange with her son on election night. 

Tlaib, a member of the Democrat Socialists of America who ran unopposed in the General Election, quoted her son saying, “Mama, look, you won. Bullies don’t win.” Her response was far from typical of the way most mothers would interact with their child, “Baby, they don’t. Because we’re gonna go in there, we’re gonna impeach the motherf**ker.”

Representing Michigan’s 13th Congressional District, a minority majority district, she advocates for the abolishment of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and supports free health care and free college. The daughter of Palestinian immigrants, she is an ardent opponent of the nation of Israel. She is one of 14 children in a family that accessed welfare benefits.

Unlike Rashida Tlaib, who took her oath of office with her hand on the Quoran, Arizona freshman class Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, a self-identified bi-sexual, also known for her crude language, opted for a volume of Arizona Revised Statutes, a law book that includes both the U.S. and Arizona Constitutions. Previously describing herself an atheist, she now has the distinction of being the only senator to declare herself “religiously unaffiliated.” God is only invoked when she swears.

Keep extremist U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Bronx-born Puerto Rican in your sights, as well. She didn’t take her oath on the Communist Manifesto, though it fits her agenda. She says she wants to impose a 70% tax on “the rich,” though she doesn’t identify who they are, nor does she acknowledge that the wealthiest Americans already pay the highest federal taxes, while many others pay none at all.

Like Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez is member of the Democratic Socialists of America. She worked as a community organizer for Democrat Socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in 2016.  Ocasio-Cortez ran on a far-left platform which includes abolishing ICE, race-based leniency for minority criminals, tuition-free college and universal healthcare.

Hillary Clinton called conservatives “deplorables.” Think of these three women as “indistinguishables.”  Shocking as it is, as public schools dumb down America’s students teaching global warming and recycling rather than broad based American and world history, there are sure to be more following in their footsteps. 

Although capitalism has been the most dynamic force for economic advancement, delivering countless millions out of the depths of poverty, raised living standards to once-unimaginable heights and enabled an unprecedented flourishing of productive creativity, young Americans are not impressed (video).  It was the support of 18 to 34 year old millennials that made Socialist Bernie Sanders an unlikely presidential contender, although he was older than many of their grandparents …who, through years of experience,  are more likely to be Republicans.
