Dr. Kelli Ward holds decisive lead in GOP senate poll

April 19, 2018

There’s good news being reported by ABC Channel 15. According to a poll the station jointly conducted with OHPI last week, the Arizona Senate race is shaking out for a conservative win.

After a single term of Republicrat Jeff Flake, who opted out of running for reelection due to an abysmal 18 percent approval rating, Arizona conservatives see a light at the end of the anti-Trump tunnel. Both current senators, McCain and Flake stated that neither they nor their families would support Donald Trump — who emerged victorious over 16 other GOP presidential primary candidates. Flake mounted an ongoing tirade against President Trump on liberal media and denounced him in the senate chamber.

The Republican senatorial field is not lacking candidates, but only one, Kelli Ward, a physician, principled conservative and former two-term state senator, presents a real choice. Martha McSally, known on this site as Sally McCain, is more of the same.

 Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, has been a conservative star, but will be 86 by Election Day, making his run for a six-year term disconcerting even to his diehard supporters.

Arizonans have endured decades of liberals masquerading as Republicans. deceiving voters as they campaign, only to reveal their true blue personas once elected. This is amnesty supporting John McCain at his lying pinnacle. Jeff Flake also cloaked himself as a conservative when in campaign mode, much to the dismay of the liberal newspaper which needn’t have worried about his campaign related duplicity.  Retired Sen. Jon Kyl pulled the same charade as he ran for his final senate term.

The poll results announced on the news report give Dr. Kelli Ward the decisive edge with 36%. Martha McSally fell far short with 27% and popular Joe Arpaio, now unfortunately taking the role of spoiler, held only 22%.

The winner of the GOP primary will face liberal Democrat Krysten Sinema a one-term CD 9 U.S. House member, who has deceptively softened her foul-mouthed image, but is still the former Green Party candidate who celebrated May Day with personal greetings in the People’s World Weekly Communist newspaper, compared women who stay home raising their families to leeches, defamed the military — which she now esteems — and revels in declaring herself the first openly bisexual, atheistic member of congress. To underscore the point, she refused to take her oath of office on a Bible.

Other good news centers on the polling numbers of President Trump. Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential polling shows him with a 50% approval rating, higher than Barack Obama’s 47% approval on the same date eight years ago –– in the second year of his presidency. Trump is winning with the American people,  despite continual leftwing media assaults.

Are Americans safer when businesses restrict our rights?

April 12, 2018

Curtailing Second Amendment freedoms a dangerous business model

Bank of America and Citigroup have each issued announcements saying they will no longer lend to clients who manufacture firearms the banks view as contributing to mass shootings.

B of A, the nation’s second-largest bank, initiated the process of cutting ties with makers of what it considers military-style weapons available for purchase by average Americans after the deadly shooting rampage at a Parkland, Florida High School. The FBI was warned of the shooter’s desire to kill, but did nothing, according to this report in the New York Times.  Is that the fault of the National Rifle Association (NRA)?

A similar banking policy will apply company-wide to Citigroup’s small business, commercial and institutional clients that borrow funds, use banking services or raise capital through the bank. Citigroup is also requiring compliance from business partners that issue co-brand or private label credit cards with the bank.

Those of us who value our Second Amendment and the diligent protections afforded by the NRA can also speak with our feet. Walk away from these banks and also Avis, Budget, Hertz, Enterprise, Alamo and National car rentals. Fly using airlines other than Delta and United. Symantec, the company that manufactures Norton anti-virus software and owns the identity theft protection company LifeLock, announced it “has stopped its discount program” with the NRA. Ditto Allied and North American van lines. We have the ability to speak as loudly in favor of the NRA, which is being scapegoated by the left in the wake of tragedies committed by the deranged.

Britain has some of the world’s most restrictive gun laws, Gun ownership in the U.K. is considered a privilege, not a right — even their police are unarmed —- but that doesn’t ensure there are no murders. The U.K.’s Guardian reports violent crime has risen, as police record a 10% rise in crime in England and Wales, with an 18% increase in violent crime and major rise in murder rates — including a 20% surge in gun and knife crimes. The official figures also show a 26% rise to 723 in the homicide rate

Knives, heavy objects and vehicles are used to commit homicide. Will the next move of the omnipotent banking institutions and other businesses aligning with Second Amendment restrictionists be the imposition of severe limitations on who can own a vehicle or possess a bookend or kitchen knife?

Silence is acquiescence. We can send a powerful message to the banks by speaking up and moving our accounts to institutions that value our Second Amendment. We can choose who we do business with. We can also join the NRA, a protector of our freedom.

 

 


AZ Supremes vote awakens ‘Dreamers’ ’to nightmare

April 10, 2018

In a unanimous 7 – 0 vote, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled against the Maricopa Community College District (MCCCD) Board over whether Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients can receive in-state tuition.

In this press release, Attorney General Mark Brnovich noted Monday’s ruling of Arizona’s high court agreed with a 2017 Court of Appeals 3 – 0 decision which declared, “existing federal and state law do not allow MCCCD to grant in-state tuition benefits to DACA recipients.”

Engaging in political straddle, Brnovich said, “While people can disagree what the law should be, I hope we all can agree that the attorney general must enforce the law as it is, not as we want it to be. As Attorney General, my duty is to uphold the law and the will of more than one million voters who passed Proposition 300 in 2006.”

This was Senate Concurrent Resolution 1031 which gave rise to the popular law. Scroll to Page 5, line 11.

On the 2006 ballot as Proposition 300, it passed overwhelmingly — 71.4% to  28.6% — by Arizona voters a dozen years ago, and was pivotal to the court’s decision.  The ballot that year was filled with numerous propositions, but voters were not confused. Take time to read the pro and con arguments linked under Proposition 300, and you’ll see why this issue took precedence among the others.

Arizona’s high court heard arguments last week in the case.

Those covered by the generous, taxpayer funded DACA program, now alternatively known by the soft term “dreamers,” claim they’ll have to drop out of school without the lower tuition rates. They’ll be joining American citizens with similar stories, working — sometimes more than a single job — while in school. These illegals with perks were also displacing American citizens hoping to attend community college prior to transferring to a university.

There is a widespread fallacy that DACA simply protects young foreign nationals who claim they were brought to the U.S. by their illegally invading parents. In fact, the scheme which requires not a scintilla of verifiable evidence even protects 36-year-olds, many of whom are grandparents.

The program was put in place through an executive order that even facilitator Barack Obama, admitted was unconstitutional(Video)

A written opinion from the court is expected by May 14. When it is made public, we will link to it here.

In a statement, University of Arizona President Robert C. Robbins — a retired cardiac surgeon and now an educrat bleeding heart —- announced his disappointment in the court’s decision though acknowledging the university will comply with the ruling. Dr. Robbins should know there is a right and wrong way to accomplish goals. Sneaking into the U.S. in violation of our sovereign border and rule of law, and expecting your unwilling hosts to fund your aspirations is decidedly wrong.

Dana Loesch: “NRA biggest defender of free speech” & crucial UPDATE

March 27, 2018

MUST READ UPDATE: 97-year-old former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens advocates repealing the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

With Second Amendment restrictionists maligning our constitutional rights and bellowing that guns are the culprits in mass shootings perpetrated by evil or mentality ill assassins, we bring you a voice of sanity.

“The NRA has been the biggest defender of free speech. I find it interesting that those individuals who simultaneously preach about free speech want to silence the speech of the millions of people who make up NRA membership.” –Dana Loesch

The NRA couldn’t have a more impassioned, articulate than Dana Loesch. Listening to her is always enlightening.

This linked video is when most of us first met Dana Loesch, in her national NRA role. It was an unforgettable introduction.

A few fast facts you might not have known:

Before seeing the light, Dana Loesch was once a registered Democrat, who worked on Bill Clinton’s second-term campaign. She and her music producer husband Chris Loesch, a Republican who influenced her politically and now manages her busy schedule, jointly home-school their two sons. An award winning investigative reporter, she has co-founded a tea party, worked as a radio talk show host and was appointed editor-in-chief for Big Journalism, part of the Breitbart network of conservative media. They are devout Christians. Although she endorsed Ted Cruz in the 2016 presidential primary, after President Trump’s election, she became a self described “passionate defender” of his presidency.

NRA Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer, Wayne LaPierre, explains the NRA’s position on raising the age (video) for purchasers of firearms.

It was bound to happen. In a New York Times op-ed published today, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, a well concealed RINO appointed to the high court by Pres. Gerald Ford, urges the repeal of the Second Amendment. Born into privilege in 1920, Stevens was previously appointed to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals by Pres. Richard Nixon.

His bizarre lack of regard for our Constitution could be laid off to the fact that Stevens is 97-years-old. We can reasonably assume a surrogate wrote this commentary. Regardless of its origins, it is a disgraceful effort to undermine our nation‘s foundational underpinnings.

Stevens was 90 years of age when he retired. Rather than repealing the Second Amendment, Americans should revisit the wisdom of lifetime appointments for Supreme Court Justices. Call your members of congress.

This is what we’re up against.  Be vigilant, anJOIN the NRA today. We have few other protectors of our rights.

Why do perverts contribute to Kyrsten Sinema?

March 19, 2018

U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, CD-9, has gone to great lengths to clean up her image. The foul-mouthed Democrat had a lot to bury before recrafting herself as a soft spoken, sympathetic and attractive candidate who won election despite her acknowledged atheism and bisexuality. 

When sworn in, Sinema who attended BYU but ditched the LDS faith in which she was raised, emulated Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to the U.S. Congress. Ellison insisted on using the Koran for his oath. Sinema also refused to take her oath of office on the Bible, opting to place her hand on a copy of the Constitution. Conservative commentator Dennis Prager addresses the consequences of this hubris.

 Sinema not only dropped her harsh demeanor, glasses and weight, she went to great lengths to conceal her closeness to Barack Obama and her previous Cinco de Mayo and May Day greetings in The People’s World Weekly Communist newspaper. She even developed an election-based affinity for our military, which she previously vilified. To no one’s surprise, the pro-amnesty for illegals Sinema was endorsed by the Arizona Republic newspaper.

Using caginess, in the swing district, Sinema a supporter of Obamacare, has learned to turn a phrase for optimum benefit:

“I used to say that I wanted universal health-care coverage in Arizona, which went over like a ton of bricks. Turns out, Arizonans hear the word ‘universal’ and think ‘socialism’— or ‘pinko commie.’ But when I say that I want all Arizonans to have access to affordable, quality health care, Arizonans agree wholeheartedly. Same basic idea, different language.”

As a member of the AZ legislature and an  early supporter of same-sex marriage, she mockingly blasted women who devote themselves to their families rather than working outside the home. Her crude comment was: “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f**k are we really talking about here?” Following the spirit of unity Dems claim to embrace, Sinema derided conservatives as“Neanderthals.”

 Read more about her in this Sept. 2012 SRAZ post, titled, Kyrsten Sinema: “Far-left radical AZ CD 9 Dem exposed.” Sinema is pictured with her far left gal pal, Janet Napolitano.

Now for the second time she’s had to unload a sizable campaign contribution from questionable sources, as reported in the local newspaper. The most recent was nearly $34,000 from Ed Buck, (born Buckmelter) the homosexual rights advocate who waged a recall war against Republican former Gov. Evan Mecham, initiated before he even assumed office. 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, casting a taint on his contribution.

In April, Sinema had to ditch the $53,400 she received from those with ties to Backpage.com, a website that authorities say knowingly accepted ads offering sex with underage girls.

 Sinema’s appeal to perverts should raise the antenna of every rational voter in the state. Sinema is now running for the AZ U.S. Senate post soon to be vacant through the forced retirement of Jeff Flake, whose 18% approval rating convinced Flake he was unelectable in Arizona.  Flake remains arrogant enough to talk about considering a presidential bid to unseat President Donald Trump in 2020.

 Dr. Kelli Ward, the lone conservative in the U.S. Senate race, deserves our vote and support. She has what it takes to make us proud.
