McCain morphs from fence builder to Spanish ad buys

September 23, 2016

Palpable desperation has McCain doing campaign turnaround, Cindy in begging mode

Trying to keep up with that slippery octogenarian John McCain requires more Geritol than most of us are willing to swallow — much like his shop-worn campaign promises that he conveniently forgets the day after the votes are tallied. Not only did he promise to “complete the danged fence  as he strolled the Arizona/Mexico border, but he clearly outlined why. Citing “drugs and human smuggling, home invasions, murder,” he said “of all the illegals in America more than half come through Arizona.” McCain concluded the ad by advocating for bringing “troops — state, county and local law enforcement together.” McCain’s “perfect plan” included “the National Guard and 3.000 new border control agents.” The word “control” is directly from his ad.

Notice McCain used the now verboten word “Illegals,” as he campaigned in 2010, promising to build the dang fence. Funny thing, but that was the last we heard of it. Immediately after election day, he and underling Jeff Flake played co-architects of the infamous Gang of 8, amnesty scheme, as they aligned with the most liberal Democrats in the U.S. Senate.

Now six years later, running for another six-year term, with the fence no longer a twinkle in his cataract filmed eyes, he’s seeking another constituency. Here’s McCain’s latest televised pitch, in Spanish, of course, titled “Por tu familia. Por tu comunidad. Por Arizona.”  (“For your family. For your community. For Arizona”) which we have translated for those doltish Americans who only speak English. You’ll notice comments are disabled for this YouTube video. It’s not difficult to imagine why.

Since McCain’s new constituency isn’t coughing up the cash, Cindy has resorted to email begging — in English, no less — on John’s behalf. Calling us “Friend,“ the Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship heiress pitches that  his campaign “MUST close out September with the strongest numbers possible. “In fact,” she tells us, “his campaign has set a goal of raising $225,000 by September 30th.” Cindy’s fortune was estimated to be in excess of $100 million nearly a decade ago. Bet’cha she could tap into those funds to help Johnny, and still have a bundle left over.

Cindy is desperate in her attempts to ensure John’s reelection, well aware as she is that his poll numbers are the worst in the countryShe knows she will never have another moment of peace…when Arizona voters say “Never McCain!


AZ Conservatives launch “Never McCain” campaign

September 22, 2016

Check back for additional briefings. They will be posted on this page.

Rob Haney, twice elected Maricopa County Republican chairman, takes to the mic as spokesman for the “ Never McCain” campaign. Inspired to action by Jeff Flake and other “Never Trumpers,” Haney is committed to doing a series of informative briefings, laying bare the deceitful record of John McCain. The “Never Trumpers” would prefer Democrat Hillary Clinton in the White House to Republican Donald Trump — whom they despise — even with the knowledge that a third Obama term, led by Clinton would, in all likelihood, finalize the loss of America as founded.

On the other hand, a successful “Never McCain” campaign, removing a Republican who acts as a Democrat, will serve to remind Republicans that the support of the grassroots requires that they oppose, rather than collude with, liberals.

Conservative Rob Haney won the Maricopa County chairmanship overwhelmingly 1,281 to 575 despite massive efforts by McCain operatives to defeat him. Maricopa County is the most populous county in the state of Arizona, and the fourth-most populous county in the United States, with 2,375,787 registered voters. The fourteen other Arizona counties combined have a total potential voting base of 1,438,075.

Conservative team efforts will concentrate on removing John McCain, betrayer of Republican Platform principles in the U.S. Senate.

There will be a series of briefings during the remainder of the campaign. We will post them here.  Bookmark this “Never McCain Campaign” post. The latest briefings will appear in order.

Second Briefing: McCain NOT Pro-Life

Third Briefing: McCain Not Pro-Life II

Is McCain pushing Lisa James for AZ GOP chair — again?

September 21, 2016

Rumor has it that one of the movers and shakers behind the shady effort to purge the Arizona Republican Party of conservative precinct committeeman is Lisa James, once again doing the bidding of John McCain. The 80-year-old U.S. Senator running for another 6-year term, is still enraged over being censured by elected State Committeemen and he wants them outta the political town by sundown — or at least not showing up at the state meeting in January for a repeat of the scathing rebuke.

The best insurance to keep the McEstablishment in control of the Arizona Republican Party is to rid it once and for all of the conservatives who understand all too well that total control, not dedicated party workers is what the McCain syndicate desires. McCain has used out-of-state Obama donors to help him in the purge. Current AZ GOP chairman Robert Graham is tied at the hip to McCain and McCain is tied to the disreputable George Soros who has funded his campaigns since 2001. Multi-billionaire Soros disdains national borders and with his ally McCain has pushed for a greater influx of illegals and unable to be vetted “refugees” into the U.S.

Prior to the Primary Election, where precinct committeemen are elected, ultra slick, full color, costly mailers, sent to registered Republicans urged them to vote for the “conservative, grassroots slate of Precinct Committeemen in our neighborhood.”

“Our neighborhood,” it turns out, is any neighborhood where conservatives are in abundance. The gimmick is to overfill the allotted slots with McRingers. The tagline is “Together, Let’s Build A Strong Republican Party!” The mailer also urges, “The candidates listed here represent a new generation of leadership and opportunity for Arizona Republicans and grassroots activists.”

This isn’t simply bologna. It’s gelatinous Spam in a can.

The required “paid for by” on the mailers lists Citizens for a Working America, a PAC sporting an oddly Socialist sounding moniker. Haven’t heard of it? Neither have most of us. Sunlight Foundation shines bright, antiseptic sun light on the Super PAC described as “flying under the radar.” 

We posted Precinct Committeemen: Have you been McPurged? a couple of weeks ago as PCs were made to wait for days to find out if they’d been kicked to the curb by McCain operatives. In the post we describe the shenanigans that have been engaged in by our so very busy U.S. Senators to oust dedicate party workers. This is not a new phenomenon. Former Sen. Jon Kyengaged in these underhanded tactics in 2012As we pointed out at that time, the precinct committeemen elections are crucial since it is the elected precinct committeemen who elect the intra-party leadership. Having conservatives in these posts hinders the efforts to have malleable stooges voted in to do the biding of the Republicrat honchos, who invariably push for amnesty immediately after they are reelected — though they campaign as committed agents of border security.

All of this signals that committed McCain supporter Lisa James is back for another bite at the AZ GOP chairmanship apple. She ran in 2007 and 2009, losing both times to business executive and CPA Randy Pullen. Pullen also served as the Arizona Republican National Committeeman, and Treasurer of the Republican National Committee.

This time around Jim O’Connor, Legislative District 23 Chairman is deserving of your support. Don’t let the practiced con artists con you.


Jeff Flake sinking like a rock preceding reelection

September 20, 2016

Squish Republicrat Jeff Flake losing support

Just days ago, the Arizona Republic, slickly adept at skewing the news to fit its own agenda, had to admit — and on Page One, no less — that Jeff Flake is in trouble with Arizona voters.

The anorexic newspaper, only 26 pages two days running, excluding the throwaway USAToday, but including the full-page hearing aid ads for its aging demographic readership, conceded that its own poll showed McCain’s freshman underling at a bottom dragging 35 percent favorability rating as he gears up his reelection campaign.

Flake’s 2012 path to the senate was not a cake walk. It took enormous effort on the part of then-retiring Sen. Jon Kyl, and his seatmate John McCain to pull Flake over the finish line. Although the duo appeared in numerous pro-Flake ads, Flake barely beat U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona.  Appointed to the nation’s Top Doc post by Pres. George W. Bush, Vice Admiral Carmona, M.D. lost by just 3 percentage points. Carmona possessed credentials — military, law enforcement and medical — lobbyist-turned U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake could only dream of.

Flake has an ego far exceeding his abilities. Given to highlighting his hair, posting shirtless pics of himself and effecting a mindless smirk, he is also adept at obscuring the truth as it suits him.

This reprehensible election gimmick involving robo calls directing voters to the wrong polling places came from Flake’s 2012 senate campaign was revealed by TV12.

Regardless of which side of Second Amendment freedoms you come down on, Flake inexcusably lied to the mother of an Aurora, Colorado theater shooting victim, who had contacted him regarding background checks. She called Flake a “coward.”

The Arizona Republic, dismayed at his facility for facileness also editorially called him out as a “coward” on the same issue.

When Flake glibly backtracked on his long held amnesty for illegals stance on which he has repeatedly partnered  with liberal Illinois congressman Luis Gutierrez, the newspaper excoriated him in another editorial, saying he was “no longer a statesman,“ merely “a politician.”

The left-leaning editorial board need not have come unglued. His latest view was merely one of political expediency. Once the former House member was elected to the Senate, he joined with his mentor McCain to form the Gang of Eight, enlisting some of the most liberal senators and a couple of like-thinking RINOs to once again push  for amnesty for illegals.

“In the past I have supported a broad approach to immigration reform, increased border security coupled with a temporary worker program. I no longer do,” the slippery candidate Flake previously declared. “I’ve been down that road, and it is a dead end.”

This July post,So you think you know Jeff Flake? Think again” remains popular as does this August posting “Jeff Flake’s deceit exceeded only by his arrogance.”  They will help explain why Jeff Flake is the most unpopular senator in the nation, as reported by azfamily TV 3.


“Coordinated” attacks: Don’t call them terrorism

September 19, 2016

Despite increased evidence of terrorism, political correctness still reigns supreme

Over the weekend mayhem erupted in several unrelated locations. A bomb placed in a construction dumpster in New York City’s Chelsea district Saturday night injured 29 people, blowing out windows and causing numerous evacuations of nearby buildings. Though NYC’s leftist Mayor Bill de Blasio conceded the explosion was an “intentional act,’’ he waffled on any connection to terrorism until his appearance this morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”  It’s certainly leaning more in the direction that this was a specific act of terror.

“A specific act of terror?”

Three hours after the blast, a second device was found four blocks away, a pressure cooker that investigators also identified as a bomb. Pressure cookers were used by the Boston Marathon bombers, killing three people and injuring at least 264 others — many seriously — on April 15, 2013. A pressure cooker device was also used in a failed jihadist plot to attack New York’s Times Square in 2010.

Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, a naturalized citizen from Afghanistan, sought in connection with this NYC bombing is thought to be part of a terror cell. He was captured this morning following a shootout with police, after being identified by his cell phone left at the at the site of the unexploded pressure cooker.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo noted that the explosion hadn’t been linked to an international terrorist group, but rightly concluded, “A bomb going off is generically a terrorist activity.” Cuomo missed the point that terrorism doesn’t have to  have international roots. Homegrown terrorism is a reality.

Barack Obama, who referred to the Fort Hood massacre as “workplace violence,” has remained mute. In 2010, Nidal Hasan, a devout Muslim U.S. Army major and psychiatrist, slaughtered 14 people (one an unborn child) and wounded 30 on the Texas Army base, as he shouted “Allahu Akhbar!” (Allah is greater!)

For unadulterated foolishness, this takes the cake:  Saturday evening police responded to calls of multiple shootings and stabbing victims inside s mega-complex shopping mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota. This BNO news coverage should be in the running for the Politically Correct Award of the Year for reporting, “It was not immediately clear whether the stabbings were linked to terrorism.”  This followed St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson saying, “The individual made some references to Allah and we have confirmed that he asked at least one person if they were Muslim before he assaulted them.”

An explosion shook the Elizabeth, New Jersey train station early Monday, where local and federal authorities were investigating a suspicious package. The blast went off as a bomb robot was examining a device inside a backpack under the train tracks around 12:40 a.m. Information was still sketchy in this NJ.com 1:20 AM report.

Micah Halpern, writing for the Observer cogently sums the reluctance to call terrorism by its rightful name in this commentary, “Explosive Language: Call the New York Bombing Terrorism Already.

Along with calling terrorism by its rightful name, we finally need to shut down immigration from terror sponsoring nations. Obama is flooding the U.S. with hundred of thousands of unable to be vetted “refugees,“ and Hillary Clinton has pledged to continue this self destructive lunacy.

Political correctness be damned.

 


State and Maricopa County 2016 GOP slate

September 18, 2016

You might have noticed, as we did, that the federal offices are omitted from this list. We’ve concluded that the congressional districts currently held by Republicans are considered safe and having an image of John McCain atop the GOP Slate would be a bridge too far for over 235,000 Arizonans who cast their ballots for his conservative challenger Dr. Kelli Ward in the U.S. Senate primary — as deep-pocketed Team McCain used raw deception to attack and marginalize her.

We encourage you to vote for this Republican slate in the state and Maricopa County General elections, as well as the conservative Republicans in your local legislative districts. (Find your district easily with this link.)

It matters.

Andy Biggs victorious in nail bitter AZ CD 5 race

September 18, 2016

If you’re ever tempted to think your single vote doesn’t matter, remember this 2016 5th Congressional District election, where former AZ Senate President Andy Biggs beat challenger Christine Jones by a mere 27 votes as the final votes were tabulated in the Republican primary election. Jones previously ran for Governor in 2004. Congressman Matt Salmon term limited himself, creating the vacancy.

Congratulations to conservative Biggs.
