CD 8 Special Election candidates strut their stuff

February 15, 2018

Conservative District not lacking candidates  — but not all are conservative

The 2018 Congressional District 8 Special Election to fill the West Valley congressional seat left vacant by U.S. Rep. Trent Franks’ resignation is almost upon us. The Primary Election for the seat will be held Feb. 27, and the General Election takes place April 24, 2018.

Primary and  General Election Information can be found here. With a full slate of aspirants in this race, it likely won’t be a cakewalk for anyone so pay attention and make your vote matter. The retread Fido-type who runs for anything is back. Someday Claire Van Steenwyk might even catch a car. It’s doubtful he’s going to go to D.C.

There is a skirmish brewing between former state Sen. Steve Montenegro and former Graham County Sheriff Richard Mack, who is calling into question Montenegro’s view on the national popular vote. Montenegro, endorsed by popular conservative Franks, vigorously denies the charge.

Former state Sen. Debbie Lesko was Senate President Pro Tempore prior to entering this race.  Phil Lovas, an early Trump supporter, appointed to fill a legislative vacancy, left that post to run. Former Corporation Commissioner Bob Stump has been endorsed by conservative U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar.

 It’s a crowded field with 13 Republicans (one of whom has already withdrawn) and 3 Democrats.

AZ U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar is a man of impeccable integrity

February 12, 2018

The Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper isn’t known as the Arizona Repulsive without cause. On Sunday, the “Editorial Board,” a rabid pack of far-left extremists outdid itself with an editorial preposterously titled, “Paul Gosar is a disgrace to Arizona.

With subscriptions in free-fall, the president and publisher taking a hike and Gannett stock plunging, the frantic gang is dedicated to finding a tactic to purge conservatives in the wake of the congressional exit of solid U.S. Rep. Trent Franks. They are also banking on the newly revamped Kyrsten Sinema winning the senate seat being vacated by unable to win re-election, Jeff Flake —  an open borders McCain clone whose polling was so low, he abandoned his quest for reelection. After the publication of his anti-Trump booklet with a stolen title, his approval rating toppled to 18%. SRAZ supports conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for senate.

With its last gasps, the newspaper is taking shots at Congressman Gosar for his reliable honesty. In Arizona Republicese, the words “illegal aliens” are anathema. When he calls for truth in the investigations of the partisan FBI and Justice Department, he is castigated by the liberal newspaper. The editorial even lays out its pathway to replacing him. Don’t be fooled by the agenda driven leftists taking their last gasps.

Gosar rightly linked liberal billionaire George Soros to the riots in Charlottesville, Virginia last August. Calling out the shared Obama and Soros agenda is over-the-top to the radicals at the newspaper. Bringing up the undeniable fact that as a young man in Hungary, Soros turned fellow Jews over to the Nazis, is tantamount to “blowing an anti-Semitic wolf whistle.”

David Horowitz’ expertly researched makes the connections crystal clear —- absent the liberally biased lens of the myopic local newspaper.

Heritage Action for America ranks Arizona District 4 Congressman Paul Gosar with a strong 97% approval rating.  Conservative Review gives Gosar a Liberty Score of “A.

Read Rep. Gosar’s bio, filled with remarkable facts about the dentist turned congressman and see all of the other current and career ratings he has amassed.

Without a doubt, Rep. Gosar is deserving of retaining the seat he has ably held since 2013.

Rob Reiner: No wonder Archie Bunker called him “Meathead”

February 4, 2018

At his worst, Mike Stivic was never this screwy

Despite the fact that 75 percent of Americans approved of President Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday, Rob Reiner appeared on MSNBC to rant that “intelligent people” like the leftist network’s hardcore liberals Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews were forced to listen to the “racist….and pathological liar.”

Reiner followed that boorish tirade with, “I feel bad for you, intelligent people like you and Rachel and Brian Williams and Nicolle Wallace and Lawrence O’Donnell and Gene Robinson, you all have to sit there and talk about this guy as if he’s a president.”

“… if he’s a president“?

Reiner never carried on like this about Barack Obama, who actually fit his description to a “T.” Racists come in all colors. As President of the United States, Obama invited “Black Lives Matter”  thugs, who advocated killing police officers, to the White House. Obama lied like a champ because he was so practiced at deception. Here he is lying about Obamacare and granting amnesty to DACA illegals.

MRC’s NewsBusters features the loony liberal video. Donald Trump’s unexpected trouncing of Hillary Clinton was more than these folks have been able to handle.

Pres. Trump releases Fake News Awards; fake Flake assaults

January 18, 2018

The old adage, “Living well is the best revenge,” takes on new meaning as President Trump releases his 2017 Fake News Awards. The stock market’s historic highs attest to the veracity of the president’s economic policies.

Yet in his most recent attempt to vilify Pres. Trump, Republican renegade and fake news aficionado Jeff Flake says, “No politician will ever get to tell us what the truth is and is not. And anyone who presumes to try to attack or manipulate the press for his own purposes should be made to realize his mistake and be held to account.” Showboating Flake misses the point that the press is only sacrosanct when it doesn’t manipulate the truth to its own ends. The media have become willing arms of the Democrat Party, but job-seeking Flake neglects to mention that crucial point. Remaining mum on lame-duck Flake’s traitorous actions is the hierarchy of the Arizona Republican Party. Do they agree with Flake’s assaults on our Republican president? If not, why not say so?

The Republican National Committee superbly showcases — using photos, videos and graphics — the eleven award winners in the leftwing media, including the alphabet networks, Time and Newsweek magazines ,The Washington Post and New York Times. The RNC correctly notes, “2017 was a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage, and even downright fake news. Studies have shown that over 90% of the media’s coverage of President Trump is negative.”

 These are the winners of the Fake News Awards:

  1. The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover.
  2. ABC News’ Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.
  3. 3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.
  4. TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.
  5. Washington Post FALSELY reported the President’s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.
  6. CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.
  7. CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”
  8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand.
  9. CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.
  10. The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.
  11. And last, but not least: “RUSSIA COLLUSION!” Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!

While the media spent 90% of the time focused on negative coverage or fake news, the President has been getting results:

  1. The economy has created nearly 2 million jobs and gained over $8 trillion in wealth since the President’s inauguration
  2. . African Americans and Hispanics are enjoying the lowest unemployment rate in recorded history.
  3. The President signed historic tax cuts and relief for hardworking Americans not seen since President Reagan.
  4. President Trump’s plan to cut regulations has exceeded “2 out for every 1 in” mandate, issuing 22 deregulatory actions for every one new regulatory action.
  5. The President has unleashed an American energy boom by ending Obama-era regulations, approving the Keystone pipeline, auctioning off millions of new acres for energy exploration, and opening up ANWR.
  6. ISIS is in retreat, having been crushed in Iraq and Syria.
  7. President Trump followed through on his promise to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel and instructed the State Department to begin to relocate the Embassy.
  8. With President Trump’s encouragement, more member nations are paying their fair share for the common defense in the NATO alliance.
  9. Signed the Veterans Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act to allow senior officials in the VA to fire failing employees and establishes safeguards to protect whistleblowers.
  10. President Trump kept his promise and appointed Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.

As angry Bannon slings mud, Trump shows results

January 4, 2018

Stocks reach historic highs today

The war of words between President Trump and his short term adviser, erratic Steve Bannon, is escalating to a fever pitch, with allegations and insults flying through the see-your-own-hot-breath air.

Along with suggesting he might run for president, the man in need of a haircut and by all appearances, a shower, recently disparaged the president’s daughter Ivanka, her husband Jared Kushner, and son Donald. Jr.  Excerpts from Michael Wolff’s new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” containing the attacks and more were released Wednesday.

“Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency,” President Trump retorted, “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.”

“Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was,” the president added.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also shot back at Bannon, saying the book was “filled with false and misleading accounts from individuals who have no access or influence with the White House.”

One thing is certain, readership at Breitbart, where Bannon is the executive chairman, will flat line as Trump supporters abandon the well regarded site.

The Bannon touch is no longer golden. It turned to mud before our eyes. Meanwhile, President Trump’s policies have the stock market spiking as never before with the Dow reaching an unparalleled high of 25,000 this morning.

President Trump should resist the urge to respond to the likes of unkempt Bannon and keep doing his job, which has been a first year of outstanding accomplishments.
