AZ Senate Republicans proceed with 2020 election audit

April 1, 2021

Long-awaited independent audit finally comes to fruition

Gateway Pundit carries the report that the leftist and hemorrhaging subscribers Arizona Republic only alludes to in the most contemptuous of terms, usually employing its two snarky columnists to indulge in ridiculing Republicans and their desire to verify the 2020 election.

Under the banner headline, HUGE BREAKING NEWS: Arizona Senate Republicans Courageously Announce Team Who Will Perform Maricopa County Election Audit and It’s Good News for America!, is the celebratory article which scooped the local newspaper. It comes complete with the Arizona Senate Press Release issued by Senate President Karen Fann (R-LD1), titled, “Arizona Senate hires auditor to review 2020 election in Maricopa County.”

Read it and rejoice in the determination of those GOP truth seekers Arizonans elected statewide.

The press release concludes with these words: “Because it is an independent audit, leadership will not be directly involved, and members do not expect to comment on any of the processes of the audit until the report is issued in about 60 days.”

We’ve waited since Nov. 3, 2020.  We can wait until June 1, 2021.


Fed. Judge accuses media of “one-party control of the press…

March 21, 2021

….which poses a threat to a “viable democracy.”

In the course of his partial dissent in a libel case, D.C. Circuit Court Judge Laurence Silberman issued a scorching rebuke of the news media writing:

 “Although the bias against the Republican Party — not just controversial individuals — is rather shocking today, this is not new; it is a long-term, secular trend going back at least to the ’70s,” Silberman opined. “Two of the three most influential papers (at least historically), The New York Times and The Washington Post, are virtually Democratic Party broadsheets. And the news section of The Wall Street Journal leans in the same direction. The orientation of these three papers is followed by The Associated Press and most large papers across the country (such as the Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, and Boston Globe). Nearly all television — network and cable — is a Democratic Party trumpet. Even the government-supported National Public Radio follows along.”

The judge didn’t include the radically left-wing Arizona Republic by name, but his stinging reproach couldn’t individually name every newspaper worthy of being declared an arm of the democrat party. The Republic relegated its coverage of Judge Silberman’s statement to the single USA Today page, devoting one column and all of eight sentences to the judge’s wisdom.

Judge Silberman cited Fox News, The New York Post and The Wall Street Journal opinion and editorial pages as the “few notable exceptions to Democratic Party ideological control.”

You’ll be rubbing your eyes thinking you misread the remarkable indictment, but the facts are substantiated by Fox News reporter Joseph A. Wulfsohn’s article,Federal judge warns ‘dangerous’ media has ‘very close to one-party control’ in blistering libel case dissent.

It’s definitely worth your time to read this all too rare condemnation of the leftist media.

Judge Silberman was appointed to the federal bench in October 1985 by President Ronald Reagan and took senior status on November 1, 2000. On June 11, 2008, President George W. Bush awarded Silberman the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Americans are fortunate to have senior status Judge Silberman seated on this case. No longer concerned with political correctness, he brilliantly used this opportunity to amplify the truth.

Dem voter suppression claim kicked to the curb by US Rep. Burgess Owens

March 15, 2021

Former football star still plays hardball though in a different field 

Today we take our readers directly to the Daily Wire to meet a new conservative shining star, Utah Congressman Burgess Owens, who unseated a democrat incumbent in the state’s November 2020 election.

Although he previously won acclaim as the NFL player who led the Oakland Raiders to victory in the 1980 Super Bowl, Owens was an early standout in the political arena as a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump. During the Utah Republican primary, Owens, who is black, capably won in a crowded field by running to the right of his opponents while unequivocally disagreeing with athletes kneeling during the national anthem in support of Black Lives Matter.

Congressional democrats are working double time to gut state voter ID laws and any restrictions on election day registration, as they require state agencies to provide names and addresses for recipients of aid and any state services to be placed on the permanent mail-in ballot list, under the fraudulent claim that not doing so “suppresses the vote.” The Daily Wire‘s Hank Berrien writes, Tell Me Again, Why Is Showing A Voter I.D. Voter Suppression’: Burgess Owens Slams Critics Of Voter I.D. Law.

The Heritage Foundation’s Hans von Spakovsky, an attorney and a former member of the Federal Election Commission details the extreme election mandates that blatantly enable voter fraud which the democrats are working to impose through H.R. 1, — a nearly 800 page overreach — deceptively titled,For the People Act of 2021.” The House bill’s number and its Senate joint measure S. R. 1, clearly identifies this as the democrats’ first legislative priority. There are even attempts to lower the voting age to 16.

Republicans in state legislatures throughout the nation are committed to ensuring voting integrity, but the biggest hurdle is the educrat establishment which puts no priority on American history and civics and whose unions refuse to open schools.

According to the Nation’s Report Card, just 24% of U.S. high schoolers are proficient in civics upon graduation. Even the left-of-center Annenberg Foundation’s Constitution Day 2020 Civics Survey indicates just 51% of Americans can correctly name all three branches of government, with 23% unable to name any branches of government.  As of 2018, just eight states and the District of Columbia required at least a year of US government or civics courses prior to high school graduation. 

No wonder democrats view Americans as ripe for a takeover of our basic freedoms. We need to elect more of the caliber of Burgess Owens.

Wrong Governor acts decisively: Reopens state

March 4, 2021

Read the bold executive order, embossed with the state seal.

There’s only one problem. It’s the wrong governor and the wrong state.

The following day, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey cautiously decided to follow the leader and reopen schools, setting a March 15th deadline.


Focus on Trump at CPAC Conference 1:40 PM today

February 28, 2021

UPDATE: Former President Trump’s presence is undeniably monumental as he solidifies his stature as leader of GOP while addressing an approving CPAC crowd 

President Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States is scheduled to address the CPAC conference at today 1:40 PM Arizona Time.

Watch Live.

Speaking to the GOP’s conservative base at the conclusion of the three-day CPAC Conference (agenda) in Orlando, Florida, former President Donald Trump continues to hold sway over mainstream Republicans, party insiders and activists.

He is expected to play an active role in the 2022 midterm elections. At this point, he has already endorsed his former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who is running for Arkansas governor.

Donald Trump has been a CPAC regular since making his first appearance in 2011, long before announcing as a presidential candidate. Among the impressive list of speakers at this year’s conference are Arizona Congressmen Paul Gosar (CD4) and Andy Biggs (CD5).


Disturbing election facts presented by Mike Lindell

February 28, 2021

On Saturday, SRAZ commenter Sam Fox posted the following video link with the comment, “Mike Lindell will make sense of the mess with his video,” as he addressed our post, “Persistence pays off: Judge rules in favor of AZ election audit.”

The Absolute Proof documentary is so enlightening, it deserves a post of its own. We hope you’ll watch. Knowledge is power.


Persistence pays off: Judge rules in favor of AZ election audit

February 27, 2021

Today we return to Gateway Pundit for the latest coverage regarding questions that have hung like a dark cloud over the reliability of Arizona’s November 2020 election results.

This is the compelling headline: “HUGE BREAKING NEWS: Judge Rules Maricopa County Must Provide 2.1 Million Ballots From 2020 to Arizona Senate for Audit.”

The report includes this statement (click to enlarge) from Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, in which she expresses gratitude on behalf of Senate Republicans to the Superior Court Judge for issuing a ruling that the senate subpoenas are legal and enforceable, and it is entitled to audit voting equipment and ballots used in the November 2020 election.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Timothy Thomason issued the ruling that will answer questions about the integrity of the balloting process. Arizonans deserve no less. 

Read the complete Gateway Pundit report, written by Cassandra Fairbanks, self-identified as “a former leftist who came out in support of Donald Trump in 2016.”


Rush Limbaugh, whose influence was profound, died today

February 17, 2021

 

Rush Limbaugh, the intellectual engine of the conservative movement,  died today at 70, after suffering the ravages of lung cancer, which was diagnosed last year. He is survived by his wife, Kathryn, who announced his passing on Rush‘s radio show today.

His three-hour weekday radio program was broadcast on almost 600 stations nationwide since it debuted in 1988, becoming the top-rated American radio show with over 43 million daily listeners, according to EIB Excellent in Broadcasting.

Rush Limbaugh was instrumental in shaping the conservative movement that made the election of President Donald Trump possible.

His influence has been profound, even acknowledged publicly by President Trump. A clearly surprised Limbaugh was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation‘s highest civilian honor, during the 2020 State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress. The president thanked the radio host for his longtime charity work and “decades of tireless devotion to our country.” The medal was placed around Limbaugh’s neck by First Lady Melania Trump, who was seated beside him and his wife.

Rush Hudson Limbaugh, III, was also a best selling author with seven books to his credit. He came from a family of lawyers, including his grandfather, father, brother, uncles and cousins who were engaged in the profession.

Rush was a major influence in many of our lives.  He will be greatly missed.


US Rep. Debbie Lesko target of leftist newspaper’s lies

February 17, 2021

Representing her constituents jump-starts negative campaign

Vile hatred of Republicans oozes from the ink of the dying Arizona Republic newspaper. Not only was there a daily onslaught against President Trump throughout his candidacy and term in office, but each of the Arizona GOP members of congress are in its cross-hairs. They have all been the subject of negative editorials and wild mischaracterizations. Truth is a mere annoyance that plays no role in the ongoing attempt to sully Arizona’s Republican delegation.

The latest incendiary headline, focusing on District 8 Congresswoman Debbie Lesko, is a case in point. Though a contemptible lie we are reprinting it since so few Arizonans subscribe that merely alluding to it has no real impact. These are the words the newspaper actually used as a headline:

“Lesko says Americans need COVID shot, not Hispanics.”

It’s ludicrous enough to appear to be misread. But there was no mistake.  This intentional deceit is laying the groundwork to amass an arsenal of venom to hurl at Lesko during her 2022 reelection campaign. In November 2020 Lesko, who previously served in the AZ House and Senate and as Senate President Pro-Tempore, trounced her democrat challenger 59.56% to 40.43% — a nearly 20 point spread.

What the absurd headlined article intentionally distorted was Lesko’s rational explanation that American citizens should be prioritized as limited dosages of vaccine are distributed.

“You know, we’re compassionate people, but for goodness sakes, we have to take care of American citizens, or people that are here legally, first,” Lesko said. “I’m just not going to be able to explain to my senior citizens that we’re giving away the vaccines to people who are here illegally. I think that’s totally wrong.”

On U.S. Rep. Lesko’s congressional homepage is an entire section devoted to Coronavirus. This page is specifically titled in bold type VACCINE INFORMATION and provides numerous sites to obtain the vaccine in CD8 as well as links to Maricopa County’s website and Arizona Department of Health Services websites for county and statewide vaccine information.

The daily newspaper is a prolific dispensary of deceit, which is why it’s dying. Tired of having your intelligence insulted? If you still subscribe, cancel. Call 1-800-332-6733.

Not only is it liberating, you’ll save a bundle of money that can be put to better use than paying the salaries of those who hate you and the Republicans you support and vote for.


McCain colluder hid info on molester, resigns anti-Trump group

February 13, 2021

Steve Schmidt emerges as a newly minted democrat

Wherever there’s an unsavory or sordid saga, when the layers are peeled back, there’s likely to be a McCain connection. 

So it is with the revelations of the Lincoln Project, the scheming anti-Trump group that desperately, though unsuccessfully, desired to characterize itself as taking the moral high ground in its war against the popular former president. It raised $millions and funded attack ads against President Trump, which initially raised eyebrows since one of the principals of the nefarious organization is George Conway, whose wife Kellyanne Conway was a strategist and legal advisor for the former president.

Notable is the recent resignation of the group’s co-founder and previous McCain adviser Steve Schmidt, after acknowledging having information, along with other members of the leadership team, about allegations of at least 10 specific allegations of sexual harassment of young men, including at least one minor, against co-founder John Weaver since last June. Even armed with that damning information, the Trump hating Lincoln Project seized on the impeachment as a fundraising advantage while it also played a major role in heavy-handedly squeezing Republican-friendly corporations to stop donating money to Trump’s Republican allies in Congress. McCain’s strategist Schmidt recently reregistered as a democrat, something dishonest McCain should have done, but angled to benefit himself with a GOP facade in Arizona.

As reported by AP, since its creation, the Lincoln Project has raised $90 million. But only about a third of the money, roughly $27 million, directly paid for advertisements that aired on broadcast and cable, or appeared online, during the 2020 campaign, according to an analysis of campaign finance disclosures and data from the ad tracking firm Kantar/CMAG.

That leaves tens of millions of dollars that went toward expenses like production costs, overhead — and exorbitant consulting fees collected by members of the group. Fox News expands on where the money actually went. Lincoln Project’s Steve Schmidt bought a million-dollar Utah house as operatives got rich.

Spiraling allegations of misconduct have rocked the mega-funded super PAC in recent days, raising questions about the Lincoln Project’s future while undercutting its contemptible message at an inopportune time. Having failed in its bogus attempt to claim righteousness in its battle against Trump, the Lincoln Project is working to pressure Senate Republicans to convict the former president in this week’s impeachment trial. Knowledgeable observers are betting on former President Trump being acquitted, since this is a farce based in democrat vindictiveness.

Michael van der Veen, a member of Donald Trump’s defense team brilliantly led the presentation on Thursday, noting “This impeachment is completely divorced from the facts, the evidence, and the interests of the American people,” referring to the proceedings as “like every other politically motivated witch hunt the left has engaged in over the past four years.”

Using this latest Article of Impeachment democrat politicians brazenly seek to employ a device by which they can silence a political opponent — or as in the case of former President Donald J. Trump — a private citizen.
