Memo to Grant Woods: Grant us a break

September 29, 2016

The Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic highlights news that is stale — as in years old. The headline, “Former GOP AG Grant Woods endorses Clinton for president,” is a case in point.

Dan Nowicki, John McCain’s unfailingly fawning assigned reporter, describes Woods as “a moderate-to-liberal Republican,” unaware that a liberal Republican is actually a Democrat. Nowicki has spent so much time groveling at McCain’s two left feet, that he doesn’t have that depth of awareness.  There just ain’t such a thang, Dan. McCain is proof positive.

Woods’ endorsement is contrived news.  The only reason McCain’s former Chief of Staff rates coverage at all is due to the fact that has learned he can generate attention by remaining a registered Republican while supporting Democrats. In 2002 he toyed with the idea of switching  parties, but like a spoiled child seeking attention, he knows such a move would render him flaccid as an attraction. He was prominently displayed on Republicans for Janet, during Napolitano’s 2006 gubernatorial campaign and endorsed Democrats Terry Goddard and Felecia Rotellini for AZ Attorney General in two separate races. Leftist Harry Mitchell was Grant Wood’s pick for Congress. 

 Grant Woods is a show boater. This is who Woods is.  It’s how he thinks. It isn’t news.

Suspense and Hilarity from the Arizona Republic

September 27, 2016

This morning’s edition of the reliably leftist Arizona Republic has reached into the arena of slapstick comedy  The all caps Page One headline “ON THE OFFENSIVE” tops an oversize photo of a smiling Hillary Clinton in the foreground with a shadowy Donald Trump barely visible behind her.

Centered beneath these in bold red type is this teaser: “Our endorsement.”

“At 6 p.m. today, the Arizona Republic editorial board will announce its endorsement for president of the United States. “

Today’s editorial headline is “Clinton takes down national bully,” making the feigned suspense superfluous.

Readers who would have to be flatlined not to have already guessed the newspaper’s position from months of ongoing derogatory coverage of Donald Trump and selective omissions of difficult to ignore scandals surrounding Hillary Clinton, are directed to the fish wrap’s Facebook page and  website for live coverage.  It will also be available in the Wednesday edition.

Donald Trump being undermined by AZ RINOs

September 27, 2016

Political consultant Brian Seitchik appeared in Politico a few months ago identified as GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s Arizona state director. He carried a strange bag of credentials, having previously opined that, “Trump’s impact on congressional races and other down ticket races could be disastrous.”

This past Saturday at a Trump rally in Mesa, Seitchik, exercising his newly found authority, attempted to pick a fight with twice elected, former Maricopa County chairman Rob Haney who was in line to pick up Trump/Pence campaign signs for himself and distribution to others.

How did this onetime California political operative with an obvious vendetta against GOP standard-bearer Donald Trump end up being appointed his Arizona state director? Who’s responsible for making such a detrimental appointment? 

Earlier this month we posted “McCain colluders Graham, Lynch set to scuttle Trump.” It included the list of Arizona Presidential Electors — all appointed by McCain cohort AZ GOP Chairman Robert Graham. Remember McCain actually called Hillary Clinton “a rock star he could support for president?

In the case of Jane Lynch, Graham bears the responsibility for choosing a like-minded, known McCain ally, who gives lip service to Republican values, but turns decidedly squishy when backbone counts, like the aisle crossing, pro-amnesty maverick himself. “I don’t like the fact that I’m going to do this,” said Arizona presidential elector Lynch, of committing her electoral vote to Trump. Lynch told Politico, “she’ll likely cast her personal vote for libertarian Gary Johnson or a write-in candidate.” So Jane Lynch, a  Trump elector, publicly announces her defection, which carries no consequence from the state party chairman.

Trump’s Arizona Campaign Chairman state Rep. Phil Lovas, who congratulated McCain on his primary election victory from the podium at Trump’s most recent appearance in the Valley, was soundly booed by the massive crowd of conservatives in attendance. Again we ask, who is responsible for these appointments?

Jarrett Maupin sinks ever lower in quest to achieve notoriety

September 25, 2016

Some people aspire to heights thought to be beyond their reach. Undeterred, they work diligently to attain their ambitions. It’s inspiring to see the results of their efforts, achieved through a combination of unrelenting resolve, effort and determination. Observing such people achieve their goals, plants the seeds for success in others.

Then there’s Jarrett Maupin, a never-was and likely never-will-be. In his teens, he emulated the notorious Al Sharpton, even placing the word “Reverend” before his name though he attended no theological institution.  Sharpton, it will be remembered represented Tawana Brawley on false rape claims against four New York men including an assistant District Attorney and a police officer. The hoax was a major story in 1987 potentially ruining the lives of innocent men.

In November 2008, Maupin, then 21, was arrested for filing a false report. The previous year he ran against Mayor Phil Gordon but was bumped from the race after the County Clerk’s Office determined that nearly 185 of the nominating petition signatures needed to assure Maupin’s spot on the ballot were collected by convicted felons, invalidating them.

In retaliation, Maupin lied to Maricopa County Sheriff’s investigators and the FBI presenting them with a list of witnesses who had supposedly seen video evidence of Mayor Gordon committing sex crimes with a child. Five investigators were assigned to the case and spent eight months conducting an investigation,

But when detectives interviewed the so-called witnesses, all denied knowledge of any criminal activity by Gordon and any evidence that would support Maupin’s vicious and baseless allegations. According to this report in the local newspaper, Maupin faced 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $2,500, but got off easy with five years probation and 75 hours of community service.  Later in 2011, the contemptible Maupin served time in federal custody for violating the terms of his probation in the 2009 conviction, and was given 36 months of supervised probation upon release — another slap on the wrist.

Another example of Maupin’s race baiting tactics occurred in the 2013 Phoenix City Council race, where he used vicious racial slurs against a Democrat female candidate who had the temerity to run for a council seat though not black. She won despite his attacks.

These days Maupin, the self-declared, jobless “civil rights activist” is trying to capitalize on the aggressive behavior of the Black Lives Matter goons who are creating havoc in cities across the U.S. falsely alleging widespread institutionalized police brutality. In July he tied up rush hour traffic at 24th Street and Camelback. Police thwarted his threats to block Interstate 10 in Phoenix.

His latest gambit is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday, with protesters blocking the Mill Ave. Bridge in Tempe. He refers to this planned debacle as “Blockade on the Bridge: Moral Monday Action.”

It’s safe to say, Jarrett Maupin wouldn’t recognize moral actions if they sat on his now-shaved head. 


Joe Arpaio targeted by leftist open borders billionaire Soros

September 15, 2016

Radical open borders supporter George Soros funds McCain and Hillary

The Drudge Report links to a 3 TV story detailing the latest low point in Arizona politics.  Just when conservatives think it’s impossible for the establishment to sink to a deeper nadir, we are reminded that John McCain still lurks in the seamiest depths of the political realm. Case in point, the entry of McCain and Hillary backer — multi-billionaire tycoon George Soros. The radical leftist now has Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in his sights as he funds problem plagued challenger, Democrat Paul Penzone. This is Penzone’s second attempt to bring down the popular Arpaio. In the recent Primary Election, Joe Arpaio was met with a repeat challenger and party switching Democrat Dan Saban, who fared badly as a faux Republican, carrying only 26.88 % of the vote to Arpaio’s 65.40%. There were two other also-rans in the race. In the August Primary, the Democrat Party backed Penzone’s opponent.

Soros’ entry into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s race is by no means a stand alone aberration. His Safety and Justice national PAC is a syndicate with long tentacles reaching into law enforcement races in various states, including Illinois, Florida, New Mexico and Texas. He is even funding the expansion of Europe’s “refugee” crisis, declaringnational borders are the obstacle.”

Like his associates and benefactors of his largess John McCain and Hillary Clinton, Soros is an open borders agent, who refers to illegal aliens as migrants. That’s why they get his money and Sheriff Joe Arpaio receives his wrath. John McCain has called his friend Hillarya rock star.”

The name of the game these days is to run high dollar vicious ad campaigns with innocuous sounding names. Grassroots Arizona, based in the DC environs, and which has nothing to do with either grassroots GOP activists or Arizona, was the vehicle used to drag John McCain across the primary finish line by ludicrously accusing challenger Dr. Kelli Ward of risking our national security and having a weak record on defeating Islamic terrorism. It mattered not that Ward, a family practice physician, and former two term state senator was not in a position to vote on matters of national security in the state legislature. She is also a military wife whose husband Col. Michael Ward has served voluntary tours in Kuwait, Iraq and Turkey. He is the Arizona National Guard State Air Surgeon.

Another PAC carrying the vaguely Socialist sounding moniker of Citizens for a Working America, mailed out oversize, full-color and high quality glossy stock fliers encouraging votes for the “real conservative, grassroots slate” of Precinct Committeemen, in an attempt to oust the actual conservatives in precincts statewide. The method was overfilling the allotted positions with McCain cohorts. What’s the point you ask?  

Precinct Committeemen elections are crucial since it is the elected committeemen who elect the intra-party leadership. Having conservatives in these posts hinders the efforts to have compliant stooges voted in to do the biding of the Republicrat honchos, who invariably push for amnesty immediately after they are reelected — though they campaign as committed agents of border security. Retired Sen. Jon Kyl, now a DC lobbyist, engaged in these same deceptive practices in 2012, sending out postcards with his grinning mug on them, as he undercut hardworking conservative PCs.

It’s doubtful the AZ GOP establishment controlled by McCain ally Robert Graham will throw Sheriff Arpaio a lifeline against the liberal Democrat. Let’s be sure we do. Think of your vote as a life jacket. Encourage your friends and neighbors to vote for this good man who has spent his career protecting the citizenry both locally as sheriff and globally with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.


Power through: Hillary’s apologists sing fight song in unison

September 14, 2016

Leftwing newscasters get identical infusions of pro-Hillary talking points

Step right up, folks!  The sideshow is about to begin!  Grab yer honey! Git yer popcorn! Watch the ‘Grand Collusion’ as fearful media liberals see their favored candidate lose power, engulfed in scandals, scapegoat friends, insult American voters, stumble, collapse, sweat, nosedive in the polls and cancel fundraisers!

Before your very eyes, you will see Hillary Clintonpower through even as she battles what she calls pneumonia — and what appears to be a serious neurological disease  — now forced to apologize for the insults she hurled at millions of American voters who support her opponent by calling them abasket of deplorables.”

This is a must see.  Watch the blood drain from the faces of the falsely jovial media elites as they confront the very real possibility of losing the White House to Republican Donald Trump, a reality which looms larger with each passing day.

Is anti-Christian bigot Martin Castro Hillary’s speechwriter?

September 13, 2016

Today we share some disturbing words from Gary Bauer writing about Christian intolerance.

Actually, Bauer was quoting Martin Castro, who claims that “the phrases ‘religious liberty’ and ‘religious freedom’ will stand for nothing except hypocrisy so long as they remain code words for discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, Christian supremacy or any form of intolerance.”‘

You read that right.

And who is Martin Castro? None other than the chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. He heads the government agency charged with protecting our rights, yet Castro  glibly equates the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty to bigotry.

“In our nation’s past religion has been used to justify slavery and later, Jim Crow laws,” Castro said. “We now see ‘religious liberty’ arguments sneaking their way back into our political and constitutional discourse — just like the concept of ‘state rights’ — in an effort to undermine the rights of some Americans.

This twisted thinking came just days before the September 11 memorial ceremony where Americans remembered the nearly 3,000 lives taken by 19 far more tolerant al-Qaida terrorists — all claiming allegiance to Allah — who commandeered commercial airliners to carry out their murderous deeds.

And within the same time frame, Democrat presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, speaking at an LGBT fundraiser in NYC, referred to Donald Trump supporters using nearly identical harsh terms, declaring, “You could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables… the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”

As Hillary’s political prospects plunge, are her skittish speechwriters helping themselves to Martin Castro’s reprehensible prose, or has the anti-Christian bigot taken a side job with Hillary Clinton’s sinking campaign?
