Proof Dr. Kelli Ward frightens John McCain

April 27, 2016

Ann Kirkpatrick is an example of McMisdirection. Primary challenger Dr. Kelli Ward presents actual threat

The negative commercials have hit the airwaves.  They not only show a distorted image of Dr. Kelli Ward, a two-term Arizona state senator, military wife, mother and  physician, but also grotesque misrepresentation of her conservative record while absurdly claiming she would “leave Arizonans vulnerable to attack from terrorists.” 

Unless you’re paying close attention, it would be easy to miss the group putting out the vile deception: Arizona Grassroots Action PAC. Lisa Lisker is listed as the PAC’s treasurer. The address of this PAC attempting to present itself as Arizona grassroots activists is curiously based in Alexandria, Virginia — a stone’s throw from the seats of power in Washington, D.C. The high-dollar donors are listed in the Federal Elections Commission April 15, 2016 Report of Receipts and Disbursements — covering the period from January 1, 2016 through March 31, 2016.

Even after making disbursements of $127,619.20, the PAC still has $714,062.44 listed as “Cash on Hand.” Take a guess where that money will be directed. Lisa Lisker, owner of a D.C. area firm which provides political financial consulting and collaboration with PACs, was coincidentally the treasurer for Marco Rubio’s failed presidential bid. Rubio and McCain were connected by the golden amnesty chain holding together the ‘Gang of Eight’ Republicrats and Dems, all committed to the flood of cheap illegal labor entering the U.S. The Chamber of Commerce generously funds the candidates who tender their votes resulting in undercutting wages of American workers.

Among the scant smattering of Arizona donors, the list is rife with big spenders from California, Florida, Nevada, New York, Maryland, Massachusetts and Michigan — all of whom obviously have the best interests of Arizonans at heart — people like San Francisco resident Gregory Wendt.

Writing about John McCain’s retaliatory actions including colluding with Obama donor Gregory Wendt after his embarrassing censure by his home state’s elected delegates, FrontPagemag, correctly noted:

“There’s something obviously slimy about a powerful senator using out-of-state money to try and purge local critics in his own party. It’s anti-democratic and exactly the kind of thing that McCain, who claimed to be for campaign finance reform, was expected to oppose.

Except he’s been doing it for a while.

This is the problem with McCain. He’s not only a liberal Republican, but he’s vindictive and ethically challenged. He doesn’t seem to represent Arizona. He represents a handful of wealthy out-of-state donors trying to manufacture voters still willing to blindly pull the lever for him.”

Although John McCain, who will be 80 by Election Day and is arrogantly running for another 6-year senate term, sends out numerous campaign beg-a-thon emails citing Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick as his challenger as if he has a clear route to the General Election. He knows — as do his donors who fund this despicable PAC — that his actual challenge is Dr. Kelli Ward. That fact is made all too clear by the fact that it’s solely Republican Kelli Ward who is in the sights of the vicious, liberal-funded ad campaign. McCain’s tried and true modus operandi is to tack right at election time and revert back immediately after the votes are tallied. He and his junior sidekick, Jeff Flake, who has honed the same strategy, were working with far left Democrats Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin other amnesty”gangsters” within hours after the ballots were counted.

Kelli Ward says, “Send a fresh, new voice to the U.S. Senate: Let’s shake up Washington together.” Arizonans have that chance!  Let’s not botch it. Show these deceivers Arizona Republicans can’t be bought by out-of-state leftists.


Pondering our undoing

April 23, 2016

Thomas Sowell is a man who possesses a brilliant mind, which makes his “Random Thoughts” worth reading.

This is an example:

“Historians of the future, when they look back on our times, may be completely baffled when trying to understand how Western civilization welcomed vast numbers of people hostile to the fundamental values of Western civilization, people who had been taught that they have a right to kill those who do not share their beliefs.”

Ponder that.


Vote NO on deceptive Prop. 123

April 18, 2016

Special Election May 17, 2016 — Early balloting begins April 20

Proposition 123 is being heralded as Arizona’s education panacea, providing school funding without raising taxes. If you believe in the tooth fairy, this will be right up your alley. Ballots are being mailed this week. We all have busy lives, but it’s imperative we get up to speed on the ramifications of this proposition.

Ask yourself why current state treasurer Jeff DeWit and previous treasurers Carol Springer and Dean Martin oppose amending the Arizona Constitution, raiding our state’s Permanent Land Trust Endowment and guaranteeing tax increases, including raising your property taxes without adequately addressing our state’s school funding problems. As Arizona’s Chief Banker and Investment Officer, Treasurer DeWit oversees more than $13 Billion in state assets and serves as an investment manager for local governments. His extensive background in finance makes him a credible source on this issue.

The Arizona Secretary of State’s Office provides arguments filed for and against Proposition 123. Since we strongly oppose the measure, we are providing the No on Prop. 123 opinions. Read them over carefully.

This brief video explains the better answer to school funding for Arizona‘s students   Protect the future of Arizona’s K-12 education system. More information is available here.

7 reasons to vote NO on Prop. 123

Prop 123 in a nutshell.

What got us here?

A different path to take.

Knowledge is power. Vote wisely. Our children and their futures are too important for this quick, but deceptive, fix.

Arizona’s K-12 education system is underfunded, but Proposition 123 will make sure it stays that way for the next generation. No one would argue that Arizona’s schools have enough money.  We all know that Arizona students deserve better, but Proposition 123 doesn’t solve the problem.  It doesn’t bring any revenue that is not currently owed to our schools, it spends future money today, while constitutionally limiting spending for future students.


AZ GOP chair Robert Graham’s trickery exposed & UPDATE

April 15, 2016

More not-so-funny-business at AZ GOP  as anti-Graham resolution is derailed 

From Frosty Taylor’s Republican Briefs:

Former Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairman AJ LaFaro has written to AZGOP Executive Director Avinash Iragavarapu requesting an explanation for reports that the AZGOP call letter for the April 30 convention will not include a resolution calling for Chairman Robert Graham’s resignation that LaFaro had re-submitted as directed by AZGOP officials. 

LaFaro writes: “…I must say, the continued lack of ethics and integrity within the AZGOP State Party and Staff never ceases to amaze me. The resolution I originally submitted on March 14th and was instructed by Tim Sifert to resubmit after being elected a state convention delegate is attached.”  LaFaro  resubmitted the resolution to  AZGOP officials on April 6, the day after he was elected a state delegate by LD18 PCs. LaFaro is a LD18 Precinct Committeeman, State Committeeman and State Convention Delegate.

AZGOP State Convention Delegates’ Resolution Demanding Chairman Robert Graham Resign

We, the 2016 State Convention Delegates of the Arizona Republican Party (AZGOP) are obligated to hold all of our leaders accountable for their actions. Only in times of great crisis or betrayal is it necessary to publicly censure our leaders. Today we are faced with both in as much Robert Graham is by far one of the worst Party Chairman the AZGOP has ever endured. So with conviction we rise and declare:

WHEREAS, Chairman Robert Graham

  • has continued to violate the Arizona Revised Statutes, the Bylaws of the Arizona

Republican Party, the bylaws of several of the County and Legislative District Republican

Committees, and the latest Edition of Robert’s Rules of Order; and

  • has repeatedly disregarded and disrespected the will of an overwhelming majority of

the AZGOP State and Precinct Committeemen; and

  • has conducted dictatorial actions that have been calculated and an insidious conspiracy

– including but not limited to the unconstitutional 2016 State Convention poll tax – for his personal benefit, the benefit of his cronies and the Republican establishment cabal.

BE IT RESOLVED that Robert Graham’s constant intimidation, bullying, overreach and unilateral policies will no longer be tolerated;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED the AZGOP State Convention Delegates censure Robert Graham for his continued disservice to our Party, State and Nation;

BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED the AZGOP State Convention Delegates have lost confidence in Robert Graham, will no longer support him or his actions and demand his immediate resignation.

Update-tag

It’s time for the AZGOP to be of the people, for the people and by the people. Not for Robert Graham’s personal benefit, the benefit of his cronies and the Republican establishment cabal.

That means it’s time for AZGOP Chair Robert Graham to go. Please join the statewide movement in demanding Robert Graham’s resignation by signing THIS PETITION

Are we to stand by and remain silent letting Robert Graham’s and the AZGOP’s abuses continue or take a stand and say enough is enough!

A. J. LaFaro
LD18 Precinct Committeeman, State Committeeman, State Convention Delegate
National Director, Arizona Republican Assembly (AzRA)

AZ GOP scuttles Trump supporters

April 5, 2016

On the heels of our post Arizona: The epicenter of 2016 GOP delegate upheaval, which linked to a revealing Washington Examiner report on Arizona’s intra-party presidential primary shenanigans, comes disturbing information from immediate past Maricopa County Republican chairman A.J. LaFaro. 

LaFaro was contacted before noon on Sunday to attend a 2:00 pm meeting of outraged Donald Trump supporters, elected PCs all, who got conned at their caucus. Not one of them won election as a state convention delegate.

Yet people who weren’t even precinct committeemen — dispatched by AZ GOP chairman Robert Graham and the RINO establishment — were elected as delegates. The entire delegation from one legislative district are Cruz supporters even though Donald Trump won by a landslide. 

LaFaro cynically notes that “the 285,839 (46%) Arizonans who voted for Donald Trump on March 22, 2016 didn’t mean anything. Robert Graham and the RINO establishment know what’s best for Arizona,” he rightly mocked. “Talk about voter fraud and voter disenfranchisement,” LaFaro continued. To substantiate his comments, he includes the link to the Arizona Secretary of State’s Unofficial 2016 Presidential Preference Election Results, which clearly proves his point.

Regardless of whom you support this election cycle, this trickery should never be tolerated. It leaves us all vulnerable and at risk of having our votes become meaningless.


Gov. Ducey signals new direction for criminal illegals

April 1, 2016

Republican governor calls new law “a sensible public safety measure”

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has signed HB 2451 into law. The legislation requires illegal aliens convicted of a felony to complete 85 percent of their prison sentences — exactly as American citizens must do — before they are turned over to immigration authorities (ICE) for deportation.

In a statement, Gov. Ducey said:

“This bill is about fairness and holding everyone to the same standard of justice by eliminating a policy that currently results in two justice systems. If you break the law and commit a crime in Arizona, we expect you to serve your sentence, no exceptions. While some have tried to play politics with this law enforcement issue, the reality is this is a sensible public safety measure that ensures we have one justice system that applies to all. Public safety is the number one role of government, and in light of reports that criminals released early without serving their full sentence are committing crimes in our communities, we must stand for the rule of law.”

Good move, Governor.

The local newspaper, the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republicis already busy characterizing this law with its favorite adjective, “controversial,” as it reports on the protests by “immigrant rights advocates.” 


John McCain’s liberal friend turns on him

March 30, 2016

Leftist Harry Reid and RINO John McCain have been longtime senate associates, even working in concert on deals including pushing amnesty and restricting Second Amendment rights. McCain became the Republican Reid trusts more than any other according to Politico, which headlined this 2013 articleReid’s favorite Republican: McCain.”

“We have a long history,” McCain was quoted as saying of his relationship with Reid. “We have had our clashes and our words that we wish we hadn’t [said] about each other. But there’s a bond that’s very deep and long between us.”

Now it appears that “bond” has been irretrievably broken. In a desperate plea for campaign contributions, McCain, calls us “friends,” and claims his good buddy Harry Reid, whom he now refers to as “Nevada’s least favorite son,” and “his liberal cronies” are working to support McCain’s Democrat opponent. McCain, who conveniently forgets to mention his exceptional primary challenger Dr. Kelli Ward, whines, “I need your immediate help to fight back.”

“But,” McCain wheedles, “he doesn’t know that I have a secret weapon: YOU.” It is with our support McCain claims he will win reelection and stay fighting for our “shared conservative values in Washington.”

Few Arizona Republicans share values with John McCain.  In fact, he has spent his decades in Washington working against conservative values, which is why he was censured by elected Arizona Republican leaders. Senate terms are six long years. John McCain will be 80 by Election Day. You do the math.

Arizonans can do better.
