McCain’s former adviser also a Hillary supporter

May 4, 2016

During John McCain’s lackluster 2008 shuffle for the presidency — throughout which he spent more time defending Barack Obama than offering a viable alternative Republicans could rally behind — we opined that he probably cast his own ballot for Obama from the confines of wife Cindy’s luxurious penthouse.  

Now it’s being reported that Mark Salter, McCain’s longtime political adviser, is a Hillary Clinton enthusiast, saying, “I‘m with her.”  No surprise there.  His former boss McCain previously called Hillary “a rock star” he could support.

As we reported in July 2013,  McCain meets regularly with Barack Obama and his top advisers and has even expressed concern over helping the second term president in the legacy department. According to McCain, “The president of the United States, like all presidents in their second terms, looks at their legacy. And there are areas that we have worked on.”

Long known for forging alliances with the most liberal of Democrats, committed amnesty supporter McCain is more of a polarizing figure than ever, which was clearly evidenced by his near inability to carry his home state during his failed presidential bid. He managed a weak 8.9% margin of victory and lost four of Arizona’s fifteen counties to Obama. After over three decades in the senate, the gaffe-prone John McCain is actually running again —- for another 6-year senate term at age 80.

You won’t get this slipperiness from challenger Dr. Kelli Ward, a two-term former state senator with a conservative track record.  Her Issues page addresses the concerns of Arizona voters, as she says, “It’s time to shake up Washington.”  Send her a few bucks to help her get her message out. She’s married to a military man. John McCain doesn’t even have an accurate count on how many homes he and his beer heiress wife Cindy own — clearly not a problem most Arizona voters deal with.


Left’s utterly ridiculous education statements

April 30, 2016

Liberal Provocateur E.J. Montini, one of the remaining henchmen at the increasingly irrelevant Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) headlines his column “Arizona is selling our kids’ brains to the Koch brothers.”

In Liberal Land, the Koch brothers are targeted and reviled for being wealthy political conservatives who usually donate to GOP candidates. No such indignant hostility exists when radical leftist ideologues George Soros, Tom Steyer, or Michael Bloomberg — among the multitude of other Dems* finance the left-wing agenda.

Question for E.J. Montini: Would the disturbing facts dropping out of the mouth of Robert Chanin, longtime General Counsel for the “powerful” American Education Association (on the occasion of his retirement),  also qualify as “selling our kids’ brains?” Those leftwing unionist teachers spend more time with America’s children than most of their parents do. The NEA members  are proficient propagandists. Keep these words in mind when you mark your ballots on Prop. 123. Don’t fall for the con. Vote No.

Obamacare: Public opinion takes a nose dive

April 30, 2016

More Americans disapprove than approve of Health Care Law

Substantial increases in Obamacare premiums are having a negative impact on Barack Obama’s signature health care measure. In January, he vetoed legislation to repeal the law, claiming doing so “would reverse the significant progress we have made in improving health care in America.”

Yet according to this newly released Pew Research Center survey, 54 percent of Americans disapprove of the 2010 Affordable Care Act compared with only 44 percent who approve of the law. Disapproval has surged by a whopping 10 percentage points. The divide has also become more pronounced since July, when 48 percent of respondents said they approved of the law and 49 percent said they disapproved. Nearly 1/3 of  Americans now say the health care law has had a mostly negative effect on them and their families. 

Freedom Partners lists the shockingly high 2016 Individual Market Exchange Premium increases by state.

The sheeple are waking up to learn there is no such thing as a free lunch. Baa-a.


Hillary miscalculates Obama’s cache

April 24, 2016

Obama’s third term comes packaged in a coughing, bloated and shrill persona 

Hillary has picked a bad time to run for Obama’s third term. After the mayor of London called Obama out for his Kenyan allegiances as the cause for threatening Great Britain with trade sanctions if it leaves the EU, the Germans have taken to the streets expressing their fury with Barack Obama.

The Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) has run into major opposition, especially in Germany, Europe’s strongest economy. Tens of thousands protested as Obama arrived in Germany to pitch his trade deal.  The city of Hanover, alone, drew a crowd reported to be 90,000 anti-Obama demonstrators.

Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership was another mind-boggling power grab authorizing irreversible authority, since treaties supersede statutes under the U.S. Constitution. 

Yet liberals on CNN have gleefully declared Hillary is embracing Obama’s third term “wholeheartedly.” That strategy would obviously be problematic with an informed electorate. The Democrats, however, rely on pathetically uninformed, fraudulent, illegals and convicted felon voters.


McCain plagued by severe case of tax amnesia

April 19, 2016

In another zany email, John McCain noted on Monday — tax  day — that “millions are finalizing their tax returns and cringing at just how much they have to keep sending to Uncle Sam.” He says, “This year, they have one person to thank for higher taxes: Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick.” 

Calling us “friend” repeatedly throughout his fundraising plea, amnesty supporter (cost per state) McCain asserts that he’s “going to be honest” — finally acknowledging he most often isn’t.

As he begs for money, McCain actually states: “I am always working and voting for bills that will lower taxes and lessen the burden that government places on our families. But I must have your help to fight back and win.”

McCain, who will be 80 by Election Day and running for another 6-year term, appears to be suffering from…ahem…shall we say, memory loss? His bonding to tax increases is long and renown. In 2001, he broke party ranks to oppose President Bush’s tax cut, a vote he continued to defend.  This has long been his modus operandi. Over three decades ago, in 1983 McCain voted to raise Social Security taxes as part of a “reform package” that was enacted into law.

Liberal Kirkpatrick, like McCain, has repeatedly chosen Washington and left-wing D.C. cronies over Arizonans, and with his long-standing penchant for tax increases, the case is easily made the two are on the same side of the issue.

But McCain, who neglects to mention his very able primary opponent, Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and two-term state senator, sticks to his script and says, “my campaign against Congresswoman Kirkpatrick is not going to be easy. My reelection is being targeted by the National Democrats and Harry Reid and she is going to have unlimited resources in her effort to defeat me — that’s millions of liberal dollars flowing into the state. “

Make no mistake.  We at SRAZ are not Kirkpatrick supporters.  But duplicity from those claiming to be Republicans is harder to take than lies from Democrats, which we expect. 

McCain continues, citing the deceptive Robert Graham to validate his claims. “But, Friend, don’t just take my word for it. Earlier this week, Arizona Republican party Chairman Robert Graham said, “Ann Kirkpatrick and her fellow tax-and-spend liberals insist on pushing their liberal agenda and forcing the rest of us to pay for it.”

Arizonans deserve better.  Follow the lead of Senate Conservatives Fund.


Unbiased press? Not at the AZ Republic

April 17, 2016

Fishy_Arizona_Republic

Uber liberal editorial writer Linda Valdez, given two pages to celebrate her “love story” of  marrying an illegal alien who stealthily crept into the United States, writes, “Why GOP isn’t fit to govern.” The Republican crime?  Rejecting a hearing for Obama’s pick for the U.S. Supreme Court in his last months in office.

Valdez’ biased selective memory ignores the fact that in January 2006, then-Sen. Barack Obama advocated filibustering (video) President George W. Bush’s choice of Samuel Alito to the high court in the same set of circumstances.

“How many kids are Republicans adopting?” was the absurd headline of editorial columnist Elvia Diaz’ incoherent rambling advocating for same-sex couples to adopt.  Diaz managed to squeeze the word Republican three times in a four sentence Quick Hit.

The left leaning newspaper, using the label “unfair” in a recent headline on the topic — in reference to the adults not the children — honed it’s skills under the  tutelage of “openly homo-journo” Randy Lovely who made the celebration of homosexuality a focal point of his tenure at the Arizona Republic. Lovely recently moved within the Gannett operation to VP of community news at USA Today.

Valdez and Diaz are not alone in their visceral loathing of Republicans. GOP hatred is a mainstay of the editorial board and columnists E.J. Montini, Laurie Roberts and cartoonist Steve Benson

The few remaining readers (Pew Research Center) of this hate-filled fish wrap should consider that their subscriptions keep this garbage flowing.  Cancel. It’s liberating and a guaranteed money saver.


McCain back in campaign mode: tacks right

April 14, 2016

Just like clockwork — every six years — perpetual candidate Señor Juan McAmnesty, who will be 80 by Election Day,  swerves into campaign mode, talking tough on the border.

Now he’s not merely trying to sound conservative, he’s admitting he’s in “the race of his lifetime,” as he refers to his 2016 campaign in his most recent email soliciting funds.

“Right now,” McCain whines as he ignores his conservative Primary opponent and leaps directly to the General Election, “my opponent, Ann Kirkpatrick, is in California, hobnobbing with big money, left-wing Hollywood donors as part of a closed-door conference put on by liberal fundraising network Democracy Alliance.” Then in the mother of all ironies he says,“ You see, Congresswoman Kirkpatrick has a habit of putting her liberal crony friends ahead of Arizona.”

That’s exactly what billionaire socialist George Soros’s pal John McCain has done throughout his decades-long political career. If he wasn’t colluding with Ted  Kennedy, Russ Feingold or Hillary Clinton, he and his doppelganger Jeff Flake, busied themselves putting together the infamous amnesty promoting, La Raza-championed,  Gang of Eight, with far left Democrat  Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Dick Durban (D-IL), Robert Melendez (D-NJ), and Michael Bennet (D-CO). Arizonans McCain and Flake were joined by fellow amnesty-bent RINOs Marco Rubio (R-FL),and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in the so-called “bi-partisan” scheme.

The Daily Caller reported John McCain and Jeff Flake have the distinction of being neck-in-neck for the least popular U.S. Senator prize. Few Arizonans were surprised by the revelation.

We should never forget this is who they actually are — most comfortable with the most liberal of Washington insiders and laughingly backing their issues. Here it was amnesty:
