McSally in deflection mode, reverts to crudeness

June 20, 2018

As AZ Senate candidate Martha McSally cowers under a cloud of investigations for campaign violations, she has veered into deflection mode reverting to coarse talk. This is her modus operandi. She used shock talk when she launched her campaign telling the GOP togrow a pair of ovaries.

Her latest missive sent out via email is first and foremost a solicitation for funds. In it, she magically bypasses the Aug. 28th Primary Election and declares that she needs to be competitive with Democrat Kyrsten Sinema.

Like her mentor John McCain, she unctuously calls us, “friend,” although we’ve never met.

Then she goes for the crude, saying “I don’t have time for BS.” She’s not referring to Barbra Streisand. If fact, McSally serves up steaming piles of BS as she attempts to BS us into opening our wallets and checkbooks.

A former military pilot, she states, “In war zones, there is no time for posturing, score settling, or showmanship. I have never had time for BS when it comes to serving our country, and that remains true for my “deployment” to D.C.” She also used the BS terminology in her campaign launch.

Her self-aggrandizing hoopla and raw language doesn’t take her far. McSally — often referred to as “Sally McCain” — receives dismally low scores from conservative organizations monitoring congressional votes.

Conservative Review  gives McSally a 38% “F” rating.  Scroll the site for information on specific votes.

Heritage Action for America  rates McSally with a lifetime score of 48% and current score of 52%. Following the scorecard are thumbs up or down indicating the Heritage Action position alongside the position of the member of congress.  Check out the entire AZ delegation.

Freedom Works scorecard shows key votes followed by descriptions of the legislation. McSally scores a bottom-dragging 39.

Seeing Red AZ enthusiastically supports conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate. Your donations will help her stay competitive against the out-of-state and lobbyist money funding her Primary Election opponent McSally and General Election opponent, radical Leftist Kyrsten Sinema.

Arizona Daily Independent provides comic relief

June 17, 2018

Thanks to the folks at Arizona Daily Independent (ADI) for once again linking their Sunday Comic to a SRAZ post.

ADI’s Red Pill Approved Comics are often based on Arizona news, which is routinely discouraging to conservatives. They have a knack for bringing hilarity to dedicated leftists such as the desperate Phil Boas, who is the editorial page editor of the failing Arizona Republic.  

Enjoy!


Step up and help elect Ken Bennett AZ Governor

June 13, 2018

Qualifying for Clean Elections funding is essential

Ken Bennett is running for Governor of Arizona and needs our help. He has a unique message, saying he believes honesty still matters. Bennett notes, “Obamacare is the biggest job killer and destroyer of small business in history. And the entire U.S. has it because of Gov. Ducey and Sen. McCain.”

It’s impossible to argue with Bennett’s conclusion, “We have been fighting for 10 years for the full repeal of Obamacare and electing members of congress and governors based on that campaign promise. (Gov. Ducey made that promise four years ago.)  During the Obama administration, congress wrote a great repeal bill and we watched the House vote on that bill every year but it either died in the Senate or was vetoed by Obama.  So we deliver the Senate, then we deliver President Trump who is waiting, pen in hand, to sign it, but it never reaches his desk because Gov. Ducey loves Obamacare and is telling his senators it must not be repealed.”

“Ducey will never support the full repeal of Obamacare because he is now sweeping the money into his bad plan for education. The latest Arizona budget just increased the Medicaid Expansion tax, so the federal matching amount also increases, to pay for “education funding.”  I call this the good old ‘robbing Peter to pay Paul’ accounting gimmick,” says fiscal watchdog Ken Bennett.

Bennett is clear, saying he wants to be the Governor of Arizona and restore the Republican principle of State independence from the Federal Government as defined in the 10th amendment of the U.S. Constitution which reads, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Former Arizona Secretary of State and Senate President Ken Bennett has abundant credentials for the job. Equally important is the fact that he is not tied to the McCain syndicate and big spending lobbyists as Ducey is.

Ken Bennett is running as a Clean Elections candidate and is asking for help with $5.00 contributions  and up to $160 in seed money donations to qualify him for matching funds.

If you’re tired of establishment control of our state, conservative Ken Bennett is the man to elect. The Hillary Clinton-endorsing Arizona Republic has repeatedly and insultingly called on him to get out of the race. Doug Ducey, like John McCain and Jeff Flake are the brand of Republicrats the liberal newspaper can tolerate.

Ken Bennett has incurred its wrath.  That speaks volumes.

This post,Bennett’s in the race: AZ Gov. Doug McDucey should be nervous,” provides background. We also made this bold prediction:Ken Bennett can and will be AZ’s next governor.”  He was able to collect his needed statewide nominating petition signatures in record time, including a 26% additional cushion to impede Ducey campaign challenges. 

Now it’s up to you.

Your help is needed for this to become a reality.


Pres. Trump boldly goes where no one has gone before

June 12, 2018

President Trump, renown for his book,”The Art of the Deal,” shapes historic diplomacy

Watching the events of the first ever meeting of a U.S. President and a North Korean leader unfold at the Singapore Summit, we are reminded that our “unconventional” president Is an innovator, willing to challenge the status quo to make progress. After eight years of Barack Obama bypassing congress to unilaterally enact new laws (video) despite acknowledging he couldn’t, and dilapidated, scandal-plagued Hillary offering more of the same, Americans gave the boot to rehashed politicians and elected businessman Donald Trump. The liberals never saw it coming, (video) but those of us who attended his rallies were not surprised.

A new website, ‘Promises Kept,” detailing President Trump’s accomplishments has recently been launched.

Each topic includes a wealth of accomplishments Republicans can point to with pride. This is what we voted for. Thank God we did. As the president attempts to engage in historic negotiations with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, pause and consider what the alternative could have been.

Visit the site. Donald Trump’s presidency has set the course of a remarkable mission and we have every reason to be proud of our votes.


Ann Coulter explains amnesty end game to Koch Bros.

June 10, 2018

Soon to retire, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s amnesty deceit defies logic

Conservative syndicated columnist and lawyer Ann Coulter is right on target again as she takes on the big money funding amnesty for illegals.  During an interview with Fox Business’s ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight,’ Coulter told the Koch brothers “good luck” with an amnesty, noting that mass immigration has slowly handed over electoral dominance to Democrats as foreign-born voters are vastly more supportive of liberals than conservatives.

Breitbart carries the interview and report, which includes this Coulter quote:

“I’m apparently going to have to spend my entire adult life fighting amnesty. Why is this the one bill that comes up every term of Congress. How many different ways can the American people say they don’t want it. This is for the donors. They want their cheap labor. And since I suspect — I mean, I know, blue collar workers and the working class don’t want it and I think more of your viewers are probably those Chamber of Commerce types.

Good luck to you Koch brothers under a government run by Nancy Pelosi. Because that’s what you’re getting if you keep bringing in cheap labor that votes against you 70 to 30.”

On his way out the political door, and despite assurances he would not do so, deceptive House Speaker Paul Ryan is preparing to serve up another rehashed platter of putrid amnesty as a parting shot at American workers and contemptibly timed to negatively impact Republicans in the midterm elections. Trying to figure out what drives Ryan is a fool’s errand, since his actions defy logic.


Ken Bennett can and will be AZ’s next governor

June 5, 2018

Frenzied Phil Boas expends massive effort repeatedly declaring Bennett can’t win

Given the chaotic state of the Arizona Republic newspaper, replete with admissions of peddling fake news and Cronkite Journalism students under-filling jobs as desk-less reporters, it would not be a leap to think Monday’s editorial was a misprint, repeated, as is frequently the case, from a previous edition, 

But panicky editorial page editor Phil Boas, is reprising his previous editorials with updated skews. On May 31, we posted,Bennett’s in the race: AZ Gov. Doug McDucey should be nervous.It provides an in-depth review of the political landscape that encouraged Bennett to challenge Ducey. Readers would be excused for thinking Boas’ latest version was a regurgitated report. It’s more of the same though palpably trembling with fury. Bennett had the temerity to address the widely held belief that Ducey is poised to appoint Cindy McCain to the senate when her terminally ill husband meets his maker. According to Boas such speculation is off limits, despite the fact that John McCain is planning his own funeral.

Headlined, “Bennett should exit the governor’s race,” this latest effort begins with the slightest twist, “Ken Bennett needs to get out of the governor’s race.” Boas asserts that Bennett can’t harm Gov. Doug Ducey, but “needs to save himself and what’s left of brand Bennett.”

Don’t mistake this for thoughtfulness. It’s ice-in-the-veins fear. Boas purposely misstates Bennett’s “late and haphazard entry” into the governor’s race.

When he announced he made the ballot, Bennett thanked Arizona Republicans statewide for their “incredible effort” in securing not only the required number of signatures to make him a viable gubernatorial candidate, but giving him a healthy cushion of 26% to overt challenges. That’s indicative of strong grassroots support, hardly “haphazard.”

Boas then pulls out the long gun, blasting what only he and his ilk would consider a slur: “Bennett is behaving like an insurgent, a Trump-destroyer of the Republican establishment, and that’s pure fraud.” In the next line, schizophrenic Phil foolishly accuses Bennett of “being as establishment as it gets in Arizona.” 

Poor, delusional Phil Boas. In his agitated state, he’s descended into withdrawal from reality, stating, “The only thing that explains Bennett’s strange run for governor is something that explains a lot of politicians. They’re needy. They reach a point when they’ve been too long from the spotlight and they crave its white glare.”

“This campaign feels like that. Like vanity,” Boas opines, “It also feels like Ken Bennett’s last.” 

Does this quote from Bennett sound like vanity or commitment?

“I am running because the truth matters and we are not being told the truth in critical areas. My primary opponent, Governor Ducey, has forgotten that this is a Republican state and is caving to outside interest groups on gun control, outrageous budget spending, NAFTA, DACA, and Obamacare.”

Arizonans are weary of being unrepresented. Republicans are tired of campaign promises that evaporate the day after the ballots are counted. Conservatives want honesty. We’ve gotten none of those qualities from deceptive U.S. Senators McCain and Flake. Gov. Doug Ducey is a longtime McCain cohort, whose first job when he arrived in Arizona was working for Cindy Hensley McCain at Hensley & Co., her Anheuser-Busch beer empire. The two couples remain close.

Ken Bennett is running as a Clean Elections candidate. Give him a $5 donation to enable him to received matching funds. Unlike Doug McDucey, he isn’t beholden to lobbyists and special interests.

It’s time for a change. Former Arizona Senate President and Secretary of State Ken Bennett, an Arizona native, has the experience to ably lead the state. We’re entering a McCain-free zone. The air is crisp and clean.

No wonder Phil Boas is choking.


Bennett’s in the race: AZ Gov. Doug McDucey should be nervous

May 31, 2018

Ken Bennett has collected and filed the necessary nomination petition signatures to put him on the ballot, accomplishing that massive task in record time. This so galls the Arizona Republic’s editorial pages editor, Phil Boas, that he’s written a screed that opens with “Ken Bennett is a stand-up guy, but…” Boas calls Bennett’s efforts “bizarre,” declares he’s running “on a lark,” while asserting he “won’t win.” In his rage, Boas misspelled Bennett, omitting a final “t.”

Boas is a sterling character, best known for relentlessly pursuing his own father-in-law, Joe Arpaio, out of the top job in the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. Arpaio was elected sheriff for an unprecedented six four-year terms.

Even Libertarian-minded columnist Robert Robb called Bennett’s hurdle “insurmountable.” Take that assessment with a with a healthy dose of skepticism. The liberal newspaper finds Gov. Doug Ducey an acceptable Republican because he has no core.

With years of public service behind him, Ken Bennett actually has a lot going for him. He is also the recipient of public fury with Ducey, who acquiesced to the outrageous demands of striking teachers who abandoned Arizona’s 840,000  public school kids for a week while following a 24-year-old Socialist hip-hop music teacher on their escapade. After Ducey caved to their 20 percent salary hike, they are now demanding more, filing a ballot Initiative to permanently provide them additional $millions.

Bennett states his case unequivocally:

“I am running because the truth matters and we are not being told the truth in critical areas.  My primary opponent, Governor Ducey, has forgotten that this is a Republican state and is caving to outside interest groups on gun control, outrageous budget spending, NAFTA, DACA, and Obamacare.” 

Doug Ducey has been aligned with the McCain syndicate since he came to Arizona from Ohio to attend ASU. As we wrote on Tuesday, Ducey’s first job was working for Cindy Hensley McCain, at Hensley & Co., her Anheuser-Busch beer empire. Although Ducey demures, it is widely rumored he is considering appointing her to fill her seriously ill husband’s senate seat when a vacancy occurs. Ducey and his wife recently visited the McCains at their Cornville ranch. 

Bennett is Arizona born and was raised in Prescott, where he was elected to the city council and served as mayor. Later, he was elected to the Arizona Senate where he was selected senate president by his colleagues. In 2008, Ken Bennett was elected secretary of state, a job that is next in the line of succession to the governor. A successful businessman with a degree in accounting, Bennett possesses a skill set based in finance, and would not have interjected himself into the teacher’s union foray as Ducey did, rather than putting the teacher salary trickery back in the hands of the elected school boards who rightly have the ultimate oversight.

In announcing he made the ballot, Bennett thanked Arizona Republicans statewide for their “incredible effort” in securing not only the required number of signatures to make him a viable gubernatorial candidate but giving him a healthy cushion of 26% to overt challenges.

He won’t have the establishment apparatus and money machine behind him, so like Dr. Kelli Ward, who is running for U.S. Senate, he will need our help. Both Ward and Bennett support President Donald Trump. The hard fact is, campaigns are expensive. Bennett is using the Clean Elections funding system.

Conservative Arizonans have been frustrated with the slippery Republicrats who have never represented us. We have a rare opportunity to right the ship of our state.  Let’s not muff it.
