Obama exhibits abysmal lack of historical awareness

May 27, 2016

Leftist ideology permeates Obama’s moral equivalency speech on apology tour

On his ill-timed Japanese apology tour —- just days before Memorial Day, honoring Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice to insure freedom —- Barack Obama stated, “our visit to Hiroshima will honor all those who were lost in World War II.”

All those”?

Would that also include the Japanese who engaged in the sneak attack of Pearl Harbor that resulted in 2,335 military personnel killed, including 2,008 Navy personnel, 109 Marines, and 218 Army. Added to this were 68 civilians, making the total 2403 people dead. 1,177 were from the USS Arizona. Wounded numbered 1,143 with 710 Navy, 69 Marines, and 364 Army, as well as 103 civilians. Japanese personnel losses numbered 55.

Is Obama counting the Nazi butchers who engaged in atrocities resulting in the systematic genocide of millions?

“We have known the agony of war. Let us now find the courage, together, to spread peace, and pursue a world without nuclear weapons,” says the same Obama who capitulated on allowing the corrupt madmen of Iran to proceed with nuclear enrichment in the deal worked out by his Secretary of State John Kerry, further destabilizing the volatile Middle East and ultimately our own national security as well as that of Europe. Additionally, the Mullahs have long threatened to wipe Israel off the face of the map. They are now ever closer to their doomsday goals.

Take time to read Ambassador John Bolton’s masterful commentary in the New York Post on this latest leg of Obama’s shameful apology tour. 


McCain quandary: Court Latino voters or support Trump?

May 24, 2016

McCain goes all out for Hispanics, will blame loss on Trump

TPM  DC examines three GOP U.S. Senate races — John McCain’s among them — and their schizophrenic courting of Hispanic voters while attempting to keep Donald Trump supporters on board their campaigns.  It’s a dicey road for the candidates from Arizona, Florida and Nevada.

McCain, so intensely unpopular both nationally and with Arizona’s grassroots conservative base, that he was censured by elected state delegates at the Statutory Republican Party Meeting — later the object of his retaliatory attempts to purge them by using an out-of-state Obama donor — is now fighting for his political life.  His latest tactic is to blame Donald Trump for his woes, (audio obtained by Politico) rather than admit that he is reviled by Republicans who view him with contempt.

John McCain, who has courted the racist LaRaza (“The Race”) and had “Mexico First” Juan Hernandez as an integral part of his failed presidential bid, currently has a Hispanic outreach team, Unidos Con McCain, in place to garner the votes of those who are more concerned with the continued flow of illegals than national security. He announced three AZ Hispanic leaders would co-chair the committee and hired a local Telemundo reporter to serve as his Hispanic outreach director. The team has been traveling Arizona, organizing bilingual door knocking activities and setting up Spanish-speaking phone banking. English-speaking American taxpayers get the back of McCain’s gnarled hand.

The ever-opportunistic Jason Rose, who the leftist TPM claims “ran” JD Hayworth’s 2010 Primary challenge to McCain, now does a “complete 180,” explaining how McCain has been effective in reaching out to the Latino Community in his desperate attempt at re-election this year.

Actually Rose has spent an entire PR career making a bee-line for money, no matter the source or the ideological bent. When Hayworth discovered Rose’s affiliation with Open Borders efforts in Texas, not to mention his sense of the Flack’s inability to employ any sense of discretion, the former Congressman chose others to operate his senate campaign. Rose promptly went on a “Twitter rant,” demeaning Hayworth’s efforts.

Then, Rose and his lawyer wife, Jordan, fell over themselves getting back into the good graces of John McCain — including making donations to the very campaign Rose at one point hoped to defeat.

The 80-year-old running for another 6-year senate term is as opportunistic and devoid of ethical encumbrances as the PR operative, so it’s not surprising that Rose has found a role vouching for the very senior senator’s “virtue” and his appeals for “diversity.”

But that “diversity” is instead “divisiveness.” It has divided the GOP; it has sidetracked efforts to secure the border; it has ignored the national security imperative of ending illegal immigration.

McCain hopes to con Arizonans one last time — and Rose looks for his next thirty pieces of silver. Quite a team.


Leftist AZ newspaper works to purge elected Republicans

May 23, 2016

Routinely calls on elected Republicans to resign

The newspaper of record in the state of Arizona is auditioning for a new gig as its readership is dwindling to non-existence.  The remaining crew — few can legitimately be called journalists — have found their niche in despotism.

Its latest trick is an attempt to seize power by demanding office holders not of their liking step down.  The newspaper has even advocated for appointment rather than elections to political posts.

The folks at the newspaper recoil from Republican voters having their say, opting instead for open primaries, where the top two vote getters — which they hope are both Democrats — vie against one another.  Recently columnist Robert Robb pondered why the state treasurer was an elective office. Maricopa Country Sheriff Joe Arpaio has long been in their stand-down sights, marginalized at every turn. Longtime Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell “must resign” due to long lines on Election Day. Secretary of State Michele Reagan is ridiculed as “inept” by left-wing  partisan E.J. Montini. His fellow traveler, columnist Laurie Roberts mocked Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich for not postponing the May 17 election due to a snafu with the publicity pamphlets getting mailed out in a timely manner. The state legislature is continually accused of nefarious schemes. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas has been the subject of ongoing insidious insults and a failed recall attempt.

The list of those unworthy of staying in office is long and decidedly partisan, since the elected officers they love to hate are invariably Republicans — most often conservatives.

An editorial preceding Arizona’s March 22, 2016 presidential preference primary bared the newspaper‘s agenda clearly with the headline urging voters to “Reject Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. Vote John Kasich instead.” Trump and Cruz are anti-GOP establishment.  Kasich would be better suited running as a Democrat. The skewed view was sounded rejected by voters who gave the majority — 47% — to Trump.

Film critic Bill Goodykoontz was pulled in on the double duty task to write, “Covering Trump’s lies no simple task.”  Neither subtlety nor honesty rank as top considerations at the unabashedly liberal Arizona Republic.

Here are the facts: Arizona holds the distinction of having Republican majorities in both the state House and Senate. The Senate President and Speaker of the House are Republicans. The Governor is a Republican, as is the Secretary of State, Attorney General, Treasurer, Superintendent of Public Instruction, the state Mine Inspector and the five members of the Corporation Commission. Arizona has nine congressional districts, with Republicans holding five of the seats and those misappropriating the GOP brand holding the two U.S. Senate seats.

Maricopa County, which includes the capitol of Phoenix and numerous other cities and towns, has Republicans holding 4 of the 5 Board of Supervisor posts, a Republican Sheriff, County Attorney, Treasurer, Assessor, Recorder, Clerk of the Superior Court and County School Superintendent.

This is untenable to the left and they strive to change it on a daily basis.


GOP Senate RINOs aid Obama’s social engineering

McCain’s arrogance once again places him squarely with the liberal Democrats  

We usually reserve insightful columns for the occasional “Weekend Reading Guaranteed to Make you Smarter” post, but this article, “GOP Leaders Toss Loin Cloth to Democrats on Obama’s War on Suburbs” by Daniel Horowitz is too important to delay even a day.  After reading it, the questions to ask are, “Where is the news coverage on this major issue, and why the silence?”

John McCain’s shameful vote, cast with the Democrats and 15 other squish Republicrats to kill Sen.Mike Lee’s rational amendment should be a front and center election issue for his Primary opponent

[Thursday’s] votes on Obama’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) “war on the suburbs” program, writes Horowitz,  “demonstrates, once again, that having a GOP conference full of liberals is actually worse than having a smaller conference full of conservatives.  Much like an interception is worse than an incomplete pass in football or a ground out into a double play is worse than a strike out in baseball, electing liberal Republicans helps Democrats more in the long run than working with a minority of conservatives to combat the Left and strive to win future elections with an unvarnished message to voters.” 

Those we send to Washington D.C. to represent us, end up with only one goal in mind: staying in their lofty posts at any cost. Once they are elected, we are insignificant. Our concerns? Irrelevant. It’s time to get the hook and bring them back. After over three decades of giving us the shaft, 80-year-old John McCain is running for another 6-year term. Arizona voters have a chance to make a difference.  Vote for Dr. Kelli Ward.

 


AZ Gov. Ducey’s veto supports gun restrictionist Michael Bloomberg

May 12, 2016

Action dilutes Ducey’s signing of two 2nd Amendment bills

The NRA enthusiastically reported that two of the bills the organization backed in Arizona  — SB 1266 and HB 2338  were signed by the governor.

The report states, “The NRA-backed bills won support throughout the Arizona State Legislature despite attempts by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s out-of-state gun control groups to derail them with outlandish claims of gloom and doom.”

But that’s only part of the story.

Gov. Doug Ducey vetoed HB 2524, which actually assists dedicated gun restrictionist Michael Bloomberg and leaves a hole big enough for liberals to drive a MACK truck through. The Arizona Citizens Defense League had requested the interstate firearms legislation which would have prohibited Arizona and other member states from enacting firearm transfer requirements that are more restrictive that existing federal law. In his veto letter Gov. Ducey said that he sees “no reason for Arizona to tie ourselves to other state’s decisions on public policy relating to the transfer of firearms.”

By agreeing to follow federal law as part of an interstate compact, enactment of HB 2524 would have derailed the Bloomberg financed ballot measure Arizonans can expect to be filed soon. If this ballot measure passes in November, it will criminalize all private firearms transfers in Arizona that are not conducted through a federal firearms licensee. In order to make this “universal background check” requirement work, state level gun owner registration would have to take place –-  otherwise how would they know you are breaking the law?

By vetoing HB 2524, Gov. Ducey gave the green light to Bloomberg. Now that the Legislative session is over, all that Bloomberg needs for his measure to get on the November ballot is to file the required paperwork and gather 150,642 petition signatures by July 7. Easy work for a billionaire.

In 2014, after passage of a “universal background check” ballot measure in the state of Washington, Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety bragged that they were going to target Nevada, Maine and Arizona for the same treatment. In 2015, Bloomberg’s groups successfully met the requirements to get their scheme on the 2016 Nevada ballot. Earlier this year, they met similar requirements in Maine. 

In April, Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, hired Pedro Morillas, a New York lobbyist registered in Arizona. That sends a clear signal they are getting ready to start the petition filing process here. The countdown has begun. We can still win!

With the Governor’s veto of HB 2524, we need to shift our focus to defeating Bloomberg at the ballot box in November. In Washington, despite Bloomberg and his buddies spending over $10 Million, their ballot measure passed with only 59% of the vote. That suggests to us that if gun owners show up on Election Day we can tilt the odds in our favor. But, that means we need to pull together to make sure that Arizona’s gun owners understand the issue.

Seeing Red AZ realized something was amiss with the information in the NRA report when Tucson was misspelled by the Fairfax, Virginia based NRA.. Arizona Citizens Defense League is based here in our own state. The NRA lost credibility when it endorsed John McCain in the 2010 Senate race after he worked for years to close what he referred to as the “gun show loophole,” which gun owners know to be a farce. Here’s McCain in a 2008 campaign ad, meddling in Colorado politics. In 2007, the NRA also endorsed then-Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon, a liberal Democrat who was dedicated to a city gun buy-back project paying for firearms to be melted down and recast into sculpture.

Such lunacy is the aim of leftists and Republicrats. We must defeat them with our votes. Knowledge is power. Share this post with those you know who value our constitutionally based freedoms.  Our nation’s Founders placed the Second Amendment immediately after the First for a reason.


Hillary’s words bring her down in West Virginia

May 10, 2016

To no one’s surprise, Bernie Sanders has won the West Virginia Democrat primary. Sanders’ victory comes one week after he prevailed over Hillary Clinton in Indiana’s Democrat primary. The New York Times has the latest numbers.

Republican Donald Trump easily took West Virginia.

Sanders benefited from Clinton’s haughty dismissal of coal miners when speaking about the coal industry in mining-heavy West Virginia. Clinton was unable to get out of the hole she dug herself  during a CNN sponsored town hall in March where she boasted, “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”

Watch as this coal miner confronts Hillary and listen to her lies, which she now characterizes as a “misstatement.”

 


Who actually owes vets an apology McCain or Trump?

May 10, 2016

John McCain, appearing Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” said that Donald Trump needs to “heal many of the wounds” he opened during the initial phase of his presidential campaign. “I think it’s obvious there has to be outreach on his part to heal many of the wounds. Frankly, I have never seen a campaign like this one, where people’s integrity and character are questioned.” One group that needs an apology, McCain said, are prisoners of war. 

In July 2015, Trump appeared at the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa and said McCain is “a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

“There’s a body of American heroes who would like to see him retract that statement,” McCain said. 

“That bothers me a lot. It bothers me a lot because you can violently disagree with someone on an issue, but to attack their character and integrity, those wounds take a long time to heal.” McCain said Trump needed to show more respect for POWs.

That’s an interesting perspective from McCain — though a Vietnam veteran and POW himself — he attacked families of POWs and MIAs in congressional hearings and went to great lengths to make those files secret.

In McCain’s case — the self-described “maverick,” first elected in 1982, has spent well over three decades in D.C. colluding with Democrats, and at age 80 is arrogantly running for yet another six-year term —  proving the old adage, those heels take a long time to wound.

John McCain’s hero status can’t be questioned, but these are the facts: On veterans’ issues, John McCain talks out of both sides of his mouth. This list of key votes (provided by Project Vote Smart) unequivocally shows McCain has either not voted or often voted in opposition to legislation affecting veterans, troops, reservists and their families. The worst scandal involving the Veterans Administration Hospital occurred in here in Arizona under John McCain’s watch resulting in needless deaths of military personnel awaiting care.

John McCain has done everything in his power to block the release of information on American Vietnam era MIAs as evident in this shocking video by Vietnam Veterans Against McCain. It features veterans, U.S. Congressmen and knowledgeable staff.

This equally stunning video shows John McCain stomping out of a congressional hearing after insulting Delores Alfond, chair of the National Alliance of Families, who spent her life seeking information after her brother was shot down over North Vietnam. McCain intentionally made sure all information was classified and made unavailable.

Ask yourself, “Why?” It’s John McCain, himself, who has the explaining to do.
