AZ has a committed partner in Kansas’ governor’s race

August 10, 2018

Kris Kobach has a history aiding our state, despite push back from inept Republicrat Michele Reagan

Nearly a thousand miles away, Kansas is not right around the corner from Arizona, but many of us have been watching the close governor’s race there, with a definite favorite candidate.

Kris Kobach, the current Secretary of State, has many friends here. He was the architect of Arizona’s immigration enforcement bill known as SB 1070, shepherded through our state senate by then-Senate President Russell Pearce. Theirs was a winning coalition of Kobach’s legal expertise — he holds degrees from Harvard, Oxford and Yale Law School — and Pearce’s knowledge of Arizona’s unique situation as the most trafficked southern border portal for illegal aliens. Pearce was ideally placed to get his omnibus legislative package through, until he met with opposition from a pack of RINOs who joined with a united Democrat bloc to derail the legislation. Most of them are now out of office. But Michele Reagan, now running for reelection as Arizona Secretary of State despite numerous election-related calamities — joined the 2011 pack of Benedict Arnolds. Reagan, long known as a Republican of convenience, is being challenged by GOP businessman, Steve Gaynor, who deserves your vote.

Kobach, also a leading authority on election fraud and adviser to President Trump, is now a gubernatorial candidate running against an appointed interim governor vying for election. Though Kobach should have easily slid into the governor’s office with a hefty cushion of votes, his lead is razor thin. At last check of voter tallies, he was ahead by only 91 votes. Kobach, whose office is in charge of overseeing elections, has recused himself from the vote count.

The radical left, open borders media despise Kobach, whose wealth of experience and knowledge of the issues riles them. In turn, they have pummeled him with deceptive hit pieces posing as news reports. Here are a sample of the biased headlines:

L.A. Times: Trump endorses Kris Kobach, an immigration firebrand, in Kansas GOP governor’s race

Washington Post: Trump endorses anti-immigration hard-liner Kris Kobach in Kansas GOP primary

Kansas City Star (editorial): Kris Kobach is twisting the truth about undocumented immigrants at Kansas universities

 Mother Jones (gives new meaning to the word “liberal”): Kris Kobach, Nativist Son —  The legal mastermind behind the wave of anti-immigration laws sweeping the country.

 Esquire Magazine: Kris Kobach Is a Bad Lawyer, a Great Fearmonger, and an Even Better Grifter

Get it? This partial list of leftist skew explains the reason for the tight race, which should have been a cakewalk for Kobach.

Nat’l Primary elections: “Blue Wave” fails to materialize

August 8, 2018

Close elections show Republicans there is work to do

There’s no denying Ohio 12th District Special Primary Election was a squeaker, but with 100% of the precincts reporting, Republican Troy Balderson — holding 50.2 percent of the vote — has been declared the winner. Democrat Danny O’Connor carried 49.3 percent.

Obviously, the margin should have been bigger. This Green Party nutcase candidate actually siphoned votes in the election, telling more about far left voters than him.

Democrats have little to run on. During the campaign, O’Connor repeatedly vowed not to support Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker. Acknowledging their own disgraceful leadership is what liberal have in their arsenal.

Under President Trump, the national economy has surged, Unemployment is at an 18-year low — with historically low unemployment among minorities. Three million jobs have been created, workers have seen the highest boost in their pay in a decade, as three million working class families have benefited from Trump‘s tax cuts, resulting in record high consumer confidence. Second quarter growth was four percent.

Another race of interest is Kansas’ Republican gubernatorial Primary Election —- another close call that should show a much wider margin. Secretary of State Kris Kobach, well known to Arizona conservatives for his work on SB1970, is leading sitting Republican Gov. Jeff Colyer by 191 votes.

Keep your fingers crossed for this decent and intelligent man who has tackled voter fraud and illegal immigration.

Kimberly Yee is the right choice for AZ Treasurer

August 7, 2018

Important office deserves voter’s attention

Proving the old adage that even a broken clock is right twice a day, the usually unreliable Arizona Republic is right on the money with its endorsement of conservative Kimberly Yee in the Arizona Treasurer’s race.

Yee’s bio details her outstanding credentials. Having worked as an executive in the treasurer’s office, there is no learning curve for the former Senate Majority Leader of the Arizona Legislature.

Yee has been endorsed by five former State Treasurers and Republican leaders across the state as well as national conservative groups.

In 2016, SRAZ featured a post including a video of Kimberly Yee speaking at the Republican National Convention, endorsing Donald Trump for President.

Today’s editorial endorsement acknowledges that Yee has the experience and knowledge to manage the state’s finances and approximately $15 billion investment portfolio.

The Office of the State Treasurer serves as the state’s investment advisor and banker, invests taxpayer dollars and conducts the state’s financial and banking services.

Kimberly Yee’s primary opponent, Jo Ann Sabbagh, is described in the newspaper’s endorsement of Arizona-born Yee, as a newcomer — she moved to Tucson in 1997 from Ohio — who engages in “relentless attacks,“ described as “disturbing.” She also plays fast and loose with the truth.

After Treasurer Jeff DeWit stepped down to join the Trump administration as chief financial officer of NASA, former AZ Board of Regents President Eileen Klein was appointed interim treasurer. She is not running for election.


Martha Mc…McCain outed by Republic’s Montini

August 6, 2018

Martha McSally: Another deceptive McCain protégé

SRAZ has been referring to Martha McSally as Sally McCain since her entry into Arizona’s U.S. Senate race. It appears the Arizona Republic’s emaciated, far left columnist E. J. Montini has been reading our posts.

Don’t mistake his outing her as the latest version of John McCain’s Primary Election flipping and General Election flopping on border issues, indicates he’s seen the light and has gone conservative.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

Montini, an unrepentant liberal, is hoping whatever he does will help boost radical extremist Kyrsten Sinema, newly revamped and posing as an “independent problem solver,” into Arizona’s open U.S. Senate seat.

Longtime readers will remember when now-lame duck Jeff Flake, followed his McMentor’s same deceptive path to office in 2011. Flake’s double talk threw Republic then-editorialist Doug MacEachern into such a tailspin he declared Flake to be a mere “politician” — no longer a “statesman.”

In 2010 campaign mode, McCain strolled the border with then-Pinal County Sheriff Babeu, who after hearing McCain’s feigned declaration of commitment tocomplete the danged fence, solemnly stated, “Senator, you’re one of us”—  leading many to wonder what the actual inference was.

In a recent Glamour magazine interview McCain’s Trump-hating daughter, Meghan, was quoted as saying of her seriously ill father, “I’m scared of America without him.”

Americans who believe border security is national security, have been equally frightened of her father’s decades long promotion of amnesty for illegal alien invaders. 

We were stunned by his involvement in the now discredited “dossier” intended to take down President Trump, which he hand-delivered to then-FBI Director James Comey, while acting in concert with Hillary Clinton‘s campaign.

It was shocking to see a sitting U.S. Senator posing with Syrian rebels who became the leaders of ISIS — referring to them as “freedom fighters.”  But without Joe Lieberman to point out the differences, Dad was clearly at a disadvantage. 

McCain and McSally are interchangeable.

Vote principled conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate.  It’s time for a real change.


Tancredo exposes Flake’s grandstanding and obstructionism

August 5, 2018

Former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo, a renown conservative leader, has written a must read exposé on Jeff Flake, describing his “long record of betraying traditionally conservative principles.”

We urge you to read,Jeff Flake is a fake,” in which Trancredo outlines Flake’s ego-driven antics while comparing him to a spoiled teenager.

“Senator Flake,” he writes, “is the living embodiment of everything that has gone wrong with the GOP and the conservative movement in the last 30 years — everything President Trump is fixing.

For too long, politicians like Flake have claimed the conservative mantle while doing absolutely nothing to conserve Americans’ traditional way of life. No longer.”

Tancredo concludes, “Jeff Flake is a dinosaur — and it’s time for him and other Never Trumpers to go extinct.”


Jim O’Connor, GOP candidate for Corp. Comm. scores ace endorser

August 3, 2018

Jim O’Connor is running for a seat on Arizona’s Corporation Commission. He’s a conservative with a professional résumé that clearly makes him a stand-out for the job. Check out his Issues page in which he decisively defines his objectives.

Foremost among its many duties, the Arizona Corporation Commission regulates utility rates. Integrity, which has been lacking in this important commission, is the paramount consideration. There is no question O’Connor posses that key quality. Running as a Clean Elections candidate, he refuses to take campaign contributions from utilities or those associated with them.

O’Connor is also uniquely accessible, posting his contact information on his website.

In a crowded field of candidates competing for two seats on the Arizona Corporation Commission, it’s clear why he’s scored big, winning an endorsement from Arizona’s conservative former congressman and media commentator, J.D. Hayworth.


McSally’s border wall double talk can’t con Lou Dobbs

August 1, 2018

Martha McSally’s appearance (illuminating video) on Fox Business‘ “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” clearly defines why she’s known as Sally McCain.  Her lack of commitment to constructing the border wall she deceptively alludes to in her campaign ads is reminiscent of her mentor John McCain’s infamous stroll along Arizona’s southern border with then-Pinal County sheriff, deceptively promising toComplete the danged fence” Immediately after the ballots were counted, McCain, Jeff Flake, Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin along with four other RINOs and liberals, joined together on the Gang of Eight, another of his career-long amnesty schemes.

Dobbs takes none of McSally’s glib double talk on the topic, as she repeatedly yammers about a “border wall system.” Dobbs swiftly clarifies that President Trump has promised a border wall — not a system — and pointedly tells McSally to stop speaking over him.

In an email sent to her supporters, Dr. Kelli Ward, who McSally is challenging for Arizona’s open Senate seat writes:

“Yesterday I met with the editorial board of the Arizona Republic with my opponent Martha McSally. Overall it was a very positive experience — I had the chance to spread our message of America First and discuss some of the most important issues of the campaign.

But McSally never ceases to floor me… our meeting confirmed she’s still totally out of touch with conservative voters.In discussing the construction of a much-needed wall along our southern border, McSally emphatically said, “I don’t know why you guys get so caught up on the word ‘wall’.”

No, I am not kidding… the woman is running for U.S. Senate in a border state and she doesn’t comprehend the overwhelming support for President Trump’s Wall. This is why I’m running. I’m in it to win and support the Wall for Arizona and the United States.

You see, my opponent never supported any of the President’s America First immigration proposals — in fact, she’s supported the opposite. When we refer to McSally as Martha “McAmnesty,” we mean it… in addition to opposing the Wall, McSally voted for amnesty multiple times as a sitting member of Congress.

And let’s not forget that the massive $1.3 trillion budget-busting omnibus spending bill that McSally so “proudly” supported back in March didn’t include a single penny for our southern border wall.”

Today’s edition of the newspaper, employing blatant deception and regarding us as easily duped fools, headlines the meeting with the editorial board, “Republicans McSally, Ward trade jabs in heated debate” —- when in fact, there was no debate. And Joe Arpaio, who celebrated his 86th birthday three months ago, didn’t even bother to show up.

Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician, former two-term state senator, military wife, and mother, is the eloquent conservative in this critically important upcoming U.S. Senate Primary Election, which might explain why Martha McSally and Joe Arpaio refuse to participate in actual debates — denying Arizona voters the ability to see, hear, and compare them. Ward’s campaign donation link is alongside this revealing video. Unlike Martha McSally, Kelli Ward relies on supporters, not open border lobbyists who fund McSally’s ubiquitous, though deceitful, TV ads.
