Eden-like wisdom dispensed by John McCharlatan

January 29, 2016

There it was, hanging like juicy, ripe fruit on the tree of Breitbart. Missing was the beguiling temptress to provide the enticement, but the forked-tongue serpent was fittingly portrayed by Arizona’s senior Sen. John McCain. And his message encompassing all political wisdom? John McCain, who spectacularly lost the White House to Barack Obama in 2008 — barely carrying Arizona by 8+ percent — now has the audacity to opine on why Republicans lose elections.

John Nolte, writing for Breitbart makes no bones about the fact that McCain knows a thing or two about losing big. Editor-at-large Nolte correctly noted that McCain lost the 2008 presidential election even before it began. Additionally as we have pointed out, he has few friends outside of the Republicrat establishment and the Democrats he regularly colludes with. For his career-long transgressions, he’s been repudiated by elected Republican state and county committeemen who have repeatedly censured him. Both John McCain and his doppelganger Jeff Flake have been the object of their jeers and backs turned to them in disgust.

Embarrassingly unable to generate a crowd, even with a cringe-worthy suspenseful build up, John McCain chafes at Donald Trump’s ability to draw thousands as he has done during his Phoenix and Mesa visits. When the Arizona senators do hold “town halls” the meetings are frequently closed-door events with hand selected attendees.

In the Breitbart article, McCain absurdly expounds on the integrity of journalists, as if they have that rare commodity in abundance — or that he would even recognize integrity if it looked him squarely in the eye.

SRAZ recommends you take a few minutes to read, Why We Lose: John McCain Blasts Trump For ‘Destruction of the Press.’ It’s definitely worth your time — and reassuring for Arizona conservatives, who are fed up with the decades of John McCain’s arrogant deceit, to know we are not alone.

Liberal KFYI talk show host shills for McCain

January 19, 2016

Fill-in radio host Barry Markson lacks crucial information, but keeps talking

Barry Markson revels in being a fill-in radio talk show host on KFYI News Talk radio. In his day job he toils as a defense lawyer who dabbles in a variety of specialties, among them “bad faith” cases. That’s his description, not ours.

It appears he was displaying a fair amount of ‘bad faith” himself Monday as he defended John McCain from what he considers an unreasonable assault by the majority of the 1,006 Republican elected Maricopa County precinct committeemen — carrying 989 proxies — attending the statutory meeting over the weekend. They voted to pass the Anybody BUT Sen. John McCain resolution by an overwhelming margin of 61 percent.

Markson, tweeting out this disparaging message, contends that since McCain wins every election, the PCs don’t represent the voters.

Actually there is no one who better represents the voters than precinct committeemen. They are elected by neighbors in their own precincts and are therefore closer to the pulse of the electorate than any city, county or statewide office holder. Committeemen are active and attuned to current political events. When was the last time your member of congress came to your door for a chat? U.S. Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake have a propensity for holding closed-door, invitation only town halls intended to exclude voters.

In 2014, McCain was censured by the state committeemen elected within their legislative districts. Over 1,200 assembled at the annual statutory meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party. McCain retaliated by colluding with an out-of-state Obama donor to purge the conservatives from their elected posts. Those who were ousted were surprised to find that the McCain replacements never bothered to show up at the monthly district meetings or engage in the heavy lifting political work required of the unpaid committeemen.

Markson’s assertion displays his lack of basic understanding of the role of the party activists. If he was paying attention he would have no question as to why the leftist McCain is reviled. The paradox exists because the majority of the public is disengaged until just prior to elections. In the remote corners of their consciousness is the bombardment of pro-McCain propaganda such as Barry Markson doles out. Voters are familiar with McCain’s name but not his deceptive actions and relentless push for amnesty for America’s illegal invaders. As examples, few are aware of McCain’s ties to the disreputable George Soros. How many know that he was poised to support “rock star” Hillary?

It is not without reason John McCain, who will be 80 by Election Day and is running for another SIX-YEAR term, comes in at number six on the list of most vulnerable U.S. Senators on the 2016 ballot. Conservative Review gives him a big fat “F” and Senate Conservatives Fund devotes a page to “Replace John McCain.”

Arizona Republican PCs do not stand alone, Barry Markson.

“Anyone but McCain” resolution passes easily at GOP meeting

January 17, 2016

John McCain walloped in advance of quest for a sixth six-year senate term

Although John McCain’s sycophants tried their best to ward off another embarrassment — this one before his final senate campaign — elected precinct committeemen of the Maricopa County Republican Committee handed the senior senator his head in his hands again. By a vote of 921 to 582, they voted to pass the “Anyone But McCain” resolution. 

Amid the routine items such as election of members-at-large* at the statutory meeting Saturday, was a vote to remove McCain-aligned officers. Maricopa County GOP chairman Tyler Bowyer, a conservative, was retained by 1,074 votes. But First Vice Chair Jenni White was recalled by 1,083 votes as was Second Vice Chair Aaron Borders — recalled by 1,070 votes. White and Borders represent the McCain establishment wing of the party. There was no vote on the by-laws because the full content had not been sent in the call letter to committeemen.

Tucked in among the fiery speeches, patriotic video and a routine by the Buffalo Soldier re-enactors, was the effort to rescue John McCain from another censure-like vote such as the embarrassment he suffered in 2014. Using delaying tactics, ‘points of order,’ quorum calls and parliamentary ‘calls for division,’ his operatives worked diligently to table votes counter to McCain — even calling for suspension of the vote.  They were unsuccessful. He was trounced by 61 percent of ballots cast. Due to their shenanigans, the meeting needlessly continued on until nearly 8:00 pm.

Committeemen were required to register before the 9:00 am. deadline — with most elected GOP PCs arriving long before, in order to get credentialed and receive ballots. The packed parking lot attested to the 1,006 attendees, carrying 989 proxies.

Highlights included speeches by Sheriff Joe Arpaio and U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Kelli Ward, both punctuated by standing crowds and thunderous applause. Numerous county officials were in attendance and addressed the PCs, along with U.S. Reps. Trent Franks, Matt Salmon and David Schweikert who all sensed the ire in the air. Though they touted their conservative credentials, all were silent on the subject of the ‘Anyone but McCain’ resolution. Salmon made a point of referring to himself as a founding member of the Freedom Caucus. Franks reminded the assemblage that he “has attended every county meeting for the last 20 years.” Salmon, stated, “I’m proud to stand before you today and say I’m not part of the establishment,” and said it’s time for the Republican Party to stop being seen as the party of the Chamber of Commerce.

Former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh, now the host of the “Joe Walsh show,” was anything but mute as he addressed the growing calls for Republicans to stifle their anger.  He boldly announced, “I’m here to deliver a message: Stay angry!” Walsh added, “The stupid Republican establishment tells us, don’t be angry.  Let me tell you something, stay angry and never apologize for your anger. It makes me angry that 234-year-old John McCain is still in the U.S. Senate.” Walsh noted, “It’s not just Republicans who are angry, most of the country is angry — this is not the country we grew up in.”

McCain, who will be 80 by Election Day, is running for yet another  six-year term.

* Members at large who won election are Linda Brickman, Mark Spencer, Wes Harris, Tom Morrissey, and Joshua Askey.

“Anybody BUT Sen. John McCain” resolution

January 15, 2016

Grassroots Precinct Committeemen will bring an “Anybody BUT Senator John McCain” resolution from the floor on Saturday, Jan 16 at the Maricopa County Republican Committee’s Mandatory meeting.  The resolution reads:

We precinct committeemen of the Maricopa County Republican Committee (“MCRC”) fully support our Party, platform, and candidates in the general elections. In the primary elections we each are free to choose which Republican candidates to endorse and support. Since the MCRC members censured Senator John McCain in January 2014, we have hoped Senator McCain would return to our Party’s values. He has not. With sadness and humility we rise and declare our beliefs:

  • Whereas, Senator McCain was censured by the Arizona Republican State Committeemen on January 25, 2014; and
  • voted for DHS funding that included money for Obama’s illegal amnesty for illegal aliens; and
  • as a “Campaign Conservative,” campaigned on securing the border but cosponsored legislation giving “pathway to citizenship” to millions of illegal aliens; and
  • actively worked to purge the party of grassroots conservatives using out-of-state funding via the Arizona Grassroots Action PAC; and
  • voted to kill an amendment requiring certification that Iran has not directly supported or carried out an act of terrorism against the United States before sanctions can be lifted; and
  • demeaned Republicans who stand for the Constitution, calling them “crazies” and “wacko birds”; and
  • voted to support funding for the Iran Nuclear Deal, Obamacare, Executive Amnesty and Planned Parenthood’s selling of body parts;

 RESOLVED that the Maricopa County Republican Committee precinct committeemen endorse anybody BUT incumbent Senator John McCain in the 2016 Republican primary election for the United States Senate.

Phx water rate hike to pay for city workers’ raises

January 14, 2016

Last week we ran this postAnte up! Phoenix “water bill” not high enough?  detailing the Arizona Republic‘s enthusiastic support of increased City of Phoenix water rates.

It turns out there was an even more objectionable underbelly to the increase that is being revealed by District 6 City Councilman Sal DiCiccio, and reported by KSAZ TV-10 Fox News.

“They were out there telling the public this big lie, that they made all these cuts, what they didn’t tell you is they moved all those employees over to the water department and then jacked up the rates to cover that, the same thing is happening again,” DiCiccio tells reporter John Hook.

This year the rates are going up 2.6% on average, and another 2% hike is expected next year. DiCiccio says the average compensation for an employee in the water department has gone from $76,000 in 2009 to over $88,000 in 2016. So that’s where your rate hike is actually going.

“What they’re not telling you is the compensation increase equals the hike and the tax increase on water,” said DiCiccio.

This is the revealing email sent to constituents by Councilman DiCiccio.

Have you heard from your council representative on this crucial matter?  If not, why not? Their contact information is here. You pay their salaries. No doubt they’d like to hear from you….
