AZ Republicans beware: Another McCain is in the wings

January 26, 2023

Biden supporter Cindy McCain, becomes major liability

Last November we posted an odd Thanksgiving greeting from James Hensley McCain, who never previously thought to wish us well. Greeting us as “Dear Friends,” his father’s slippery salutation to those of us who were anything but, outs Jimmy McCain as a fellow with political aspirations as we noted in, “Another McCain seeking a political perch? Spare us.”

He wrote, “As our family prepares to celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, I wanted to take the time to thank you for supporting my Dad through the years. As we continue my Dad’s fight to advance freedom, prosperity, security and human dignity for the benefit of all, we would be grateful to have you join our efforts.”

He was assuming a lot. Conservatives were never fans of the devious John McCain who was more comfortable with democrats Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton while shunning conservative principles opting out of AZ GOP Statutory meetings attended by most Republican office holders. When ”Dad” finally attended a state meeting with Jeff Flake who opted out of running for reelection when polling showed him with an 18% approval rating in his home state, Dad and Flake were greeted by turned backs, boos, and walk outs, based on his ignoring the backbone of the party and pushing his democrat and Republicrat Gang of Eight pro-amnesty for illegal aliens. John McCain was also censured as was Cindy for her allegiance to Joe Biden…who rewarded her with an ambassadorship to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture. Cindy and her daughter (known on this site as Mega) and Flake, all endorsed Biden. The McCain’s unconcealed rage directed at President Trump is based in their jealous ire that businessman Trump won the presidency, the office John McCain regarded as his due, though the nation’s top job forever eluded him.  For his Biden allegiance, Flake was gifted with an appropriate ambassadorship to Turkey.

Now James (Jimmy) Hensley McCain is back in greeting mode, this time wishing us a late Happy New Year, as he once again shares memories of his dad. He’s obviously gearing up for an announcement of his own, though he’s never shown any interest in the Arizona Republican Party. Jimmy’s also hustling for donations to the McCain Institute. It’s a sure bet that Jimmy has got a case of the runs, which will be characterized as a tribute to his dad.

This 2008 New Republic article, “Made Man: How Cindy Hensley invented John McCain,” provides the background of how John McCain’s well-connected second wife launched John McCain’s political career. There’s little doubt she is now advising her son James Hensley McCain in carrying on the tradition.


Karine Jean-Pierre, Biden’s mouthpiece, refuses to answer questions

January 25, 2023

Unfit for the job…credentials include having worked for Obama, and being a black, married lesbian

The scandal surrounding the ever-increasing loads of classified documents found at Joe Biden‘s home, garage and Penn-Biden Center office, continues to grow. Americans appropriately expecting to get official updates on the debacle are thwarted as spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre remains as stoic as a totem, not only claming up, but refusing to take questions about what has become more than an embarrassment. She is known to let an entire press conference lapse without once calling on Fox News’ Peter Doocy. This is her well rehearsed, absurd denial:

KJ-P: “I’m going to have to refer you to the department of justice for that.”

“I’m just going to respect the process.”

KJ-P: “Again I would refer you to the department of justice …next.”

The concerns that the Penn-Biden Center is the recipient of large sums of money from China are detailed in this letter from U.S. Rep. James Comer, (R-KY), chairman of the Congressional Committee on Oversight and Accountability. It is addressed to Ms. Mary Elizabeth Magill, President of the University of Pennsylvania. The congressman minces no words in his search for the truth. He previously wrote this op-ed, “Get Ready for Republican Oversight,” printed in the Wall Street Journal, detailing the need for accountability by the democrats.

VP Kamala’s calculated omissions in Roe v. Wade speech

January 24, 2023

In a pro-abortion speech in Florida, actually celebrating the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade on Monday, the vice president of the United States purposely misquoted the Declaration of Independence, deliberately leaving out the words “life” and “Creator.”

Kamala Harris deviously stated four times, “So we are here together because we collectively believe and know America is a promise. America is a promise. It is a promise of freedom and liberty — not for some, but for all.”  She continues: “A promise we made in the Declaration of Independence that we are each endowed with the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

The actual words are: “…endowed by [their] Creator with certain unalienable Rights…that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Harris also referred to abortion sites as “clinics,” as though they dispense health care instead of facilities where certain death of pre-born children is the ultimate goal. National Right to Life puts the most recent compilation of deaths at “More than 64 million.”

Stunning increase in crimes committed by illegal aliens

January 23, 2023

Numbers have escalated under Biden after being curtailed during Trump’s presidency

Although democrats regard those invading the USA warmly, FOX News reported the surge in crimes among illegal aliens in 2022. The spikes included homicides, drug-related crimes, sexual assaults and illegal weapons possession.

Illegals committed 1,178 assault and violent crimes in 2021, which represents more than a 400% increase from the 208 in 2020. Those shocking numbers have only worsened. Sixty homicide or manslaughter convictions were attributed to illegal aliens in 2021, a dramatic 1,900% increase from the previous year.

The Criminal Noncitizen Statistics for Fiscal Year 2023 are staggering, though you won’t find them in the local news.

Silence is acquiescence. Acceptance of this ever-increasing criminality puts all Americans at heightened risk. Call your state legislators and members of congress. We hear from them when they are campaigning. Now that they are in office, they need to hear from us. Our links omit Arizona’s two U.S. Senators. They were both radical democrats although one recently strategically switched parties to become a registered “Independent,” since she is about to be challenged by another democrat congressional seatmate. Democrats are unmoved by citizen’s pleas to crackdown on the escalating lawlessness on our southern border, which is ignored by Joe Biden and his VP/border czar, Kamala Harris. These are the ever-increasing current numbers of Criminal Noncitizen Statistics as of January 2023 as provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a democrat, issued this Emergency Request to deal with the influx of illegals (he calls them asylum seekers) which he says is, “pushing New York City to the brink.” Border state governors Greg Abbott (Texas) and former Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey began busing illegal aliens to other states, including New York. Now overwhelmed, Mayor Adams even went so far as to call for a “border czar,” unaware that that is the specific job of Biden’s Vice President Kamala Harris, as CNS News reports.

Democrats are eager to tell us what they stand for

January 22, 2023

Dems unified in desire to defund the police:

…and on the topic of abortion?

Dems all agree: The decision should be made between “the woman and her doctor.” Arizona’s far left Gov. Katie Hobbs (then a candidate) and radical Sen. Mark Kelly both appear in this video, mouthing the same words, that have been hard-wired into democrat‘s heads.

Biden’s name isn’t Loo but that’s where his polling is

January 21, 2023

Joe Biden is clearly a man in decline, both physically and mentally. But there’s no disputing he has hit his stride with the latest Real Clear Politics polling where he fails miserably in every major category except the one regarding “Coronavirus,” which remains on the list despite dropping off the radar screen long ago.

The active categories include Economy, Foreign Policy, (illegal) Immigration, Inflation, Crime, Handling Of Russia and Ukraine, and Abortion.

Two years into a four-year term and vowing to run again, his numbers are grim, without even touching on the subject of storing classified documents in the frequently unlocked garage of his Delaware home, stacked in boxes behind his Corvette. The fact that cocaine addict son Hunter Biden, 52, lived at his parent’s home is odd enough, but that he paid them nearly $50,000 in monthly rent is even more suspicious. The information in this Breitbart link” puts the Capital “C” in Corruption. Be sure you read it.

Border czarina Harris visits AZ, stays 100 miles away from chaotic border

January 20, 2023

Biden’s VP and specially designated Border Czar, Kamala Harris, accompanied by two cabinet secretaries, Biden’s climate advisor and newly installed democrat Gov. Katie Hobbs, went to Tonopah, Arizona to visit the site of an energy infrastructure project intended to connect solar and wind power grids in Arizona and California. The administration’s three visitors and Hobbs increased the unincorporated town‘s population significantly. According to the 2020 census, the population of Tonopah was 23, down from 60 at the 2010 census. Latest numbers show it with a grand total of 11 residents.

Tonopah is near the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station in western Maricopa County, 52 miles west of downtown Phoenix. Most Arizonans couldn’t give directions to Tonopah which suits inarticulate and often lacking facts Kamala Harris. Since there is no separate government or media she will not be greeted by a mayor, council members, or local press. There couldn’t be a safer spot for incompetent Kamala to visit and deliver another garbled message, punctuated by her famous cackles.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection under the auspices of the Biden administration, no longer posts daily numbers of illegal aliens criminally invading the USA and the previously successful efforts to apprehend and deport them, since that is no longer a priority. Why would there be any restraints on future democrats? The Biden/Harris agenda is not the ‘America First’ mission of President Donald Trump, or those who proudly supported him.

The harsh economic reality is evident with Google’s announcement that its parent company Alphabet Inc. is slashing 12,000 jobs worldwide in the latest round of layoffs to hit the technology sector — following Microsoft‘s recent news it would cut 10,000 jobs amid a slowing global economy. Those impacted are educated. Yet Biden has opened America’s floodgates to unskilled, uneducated and impoverished who will present an increased drain on American taxpayers as prices continue to surge under Bidenflation.

SRAZ reminds our readers to thank the democrats you know. Then avoid them like the anti-American defectors they are.

AZ’s dem Gov. Katie Hobbs’ lavish inaugural events ultimately funded by…YOU

January 19, 2023

Mega donors buy influence with money Arizonans paid for their goods and services

After vowing a commitment to bipartisanship, progress and accountability in her inauguration speech, Arizona’s democrat Gov. Katie Hobbs has worked mightily to conceal the amounts contributed by high dollar donors who funded her inaugural events, including the Jan. 7, 2023 ball held at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale. Ultimately, the sponsors, listed here — minus contribution amounts — include all of us, since utility companies, banks, health care providers, food distributors, PepsiCo, the Phoenix Suns, AT&T, CVS drug stores, others listed only by initials, unions and, of course, Cindy Hensley McCain’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship supported Hobbs. Additionally, ‘Everytown for Gun Safety,’ a firearm restrictionist organization founded by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, ponied up funds for her political extravaganzas. It has been reported by several news organizations that the total amount Hobbs hauled in was nearly $1.5 million in donations from corporations and other special interests to cover the celebratory costs, although the events ultimately cost about $207,000.

Hold onto your hats, Arizona taxpayers. This formerly teetering on the edge of bankruptcy democrat governor, thinks you are her own personal golden egg laying geese. Watch as the spending spree begins. Be sure to thank the democrats you know who put this nightmare on the ninth floor of the AZ Capitol building.

In remembrance of Russell Pearce and the fate of the “Republic”

January 18, 2023

Although it is not our policy to post articles we did not write or something of this length, this is the worthy exception. Read it and you’ll understand.

A Celebration of the Life of Russell Pearce took place Monday, January 16 in the town he always called home…Mesa. Friends, family, and a crowd of admirers assembled to celebrate the life of this conservative stalwart and thoroughly decent man.

Former Congressman JD Hayworth was in attendance, and could not help but notice the difference between Monday’s service and the “send-off” provided by the daily newspaper. It prompted Hayworth to pen this column, reprinted below.

Russell Pearce and the fate of the “Republic”

You need not look very far to find the latest evidence reaffirming the well-earned nickname of The Arizona Republic.

A reading of the Jan. 5 article on the death of former State Senator Russell Pearce brings to mind the single word that serves both as an accurate description of that sickly publication’s open borders bias…as well as its oft-employed sobriquet: Repugnant.

The trio of creative writers tasked with putting Pearce’s passing “in perspective” certainly didn’t disappoint their editorial overlords; they deliberately mischaracterized the intent of his carefully crafted, ultimately passed, and signed-into-law Senate Bill 1070.

Actually, headline writers began the barrage by calling the legislation “controversial.” That word serves as the “tell sign” when a publication disapproves of the subject of its coverage. Reporters Andrew Oxford, Mary Jo Pitzl, and Daniel Gonzalez weren’t far behind; by the article’s third paragraph, they included predictable leftist doggerel, peddled as fact: “Arizona’s ‘show me your papers’ law,” they wrote.

Had the trio of scribes been interested in objectivity instead of smearing the departed, a simple bit of research into SB 1070 and its fate in the courts would have been highlighted.

The “Fair and Legal Employment Act,” as Pearce named the legislation, drafted in consultation with then-Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who now serves as that state’s Attorney General, was formulated with the intent of defining Arizona’s right to identify and detain illegal immigrants, based on existing federal law.

As Senator Pearce said in 2010, in response to the inevitable court challenges from the Obama Administration and other advocates for open borders, “SB 1070 makes no new immigration law. It simply enforces the laws already on the books…I refuse to apologize for standing up for America and the rule of law.”

In fact, no less a liberal tribunal than the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit made clear in 1983 that nothing in federal law precludes a city from enforcing the criminal provisions of immigration law, and SB 1070, its supporters maintained, simply advanced that same practice for the entire state of Arizona.

But the intervening 27 years brought forth an activism intent on defining “open borders” as noble, and any effort to enforce existing immigration law as wrongheaded, or on “the wrong side of history,” to use the favorite buzz-phrase of the left.

Such a dubious cause sought to wrap itself in legitimacy, and exploit the growing realization that many jurists on the federal bench were more than willing to usurp legislative authority if such a drastic action were in tune with their own political goals. Instead of “equal justice under law,” our nation has witnessed the advent of “unequal application of the law, based upon political preference.”

Eventually, the U.S. Supreme Court considered the constitutionality of SB 1070, and the high court, while finding some portions of the legislation in conflict with federal law, upheld the provision that the left and its media lackeys still mischaracterize.

Far from radical, the “Supremes” found that seeking documentation for a person’s immigration status was entirely reasonable. The ruling stated that if law enforcement officers have stopped a subject for a legitimate reason, those officers must “reasonably attempt” to determine that subject’s immigration status when there is a “reasonable suspicion” that the person may be in the country illegally.

But reasonableness means nothing to the rabid, and the reporting of the “Repugnant” focuses on pleasing a particular point of view typified by those whose hatred of Russell Pearce has not abated…even after his earthly departure.

How else to describe the featured comments of one “community activist,” who compared Pearce to a terrorist? Said this “activist,” whose name is omitted from this column since she is undeserving of any additional notoriety: “I’m sad for all the terror that he caused our community, [and] all the people who were deported because of his political grandstanding.”

For good measure, the “Repugnant” reporters felt the need to include one more example of this self-appointed “humanitarian’s” inhumanity: her desire to see the deceased lampooned for laughs. “She would love to see one last political cartoon showing Pearce standing at the gates of Heaven, and being asked to ‘show his papers.’”

What does The Arizona Republic have to show for its desired editorial goal of open borders and its eager embrace of amnesty for illegal aliens? Fewer readers, for one thing. A budget awash in red ink, for another.

Russell Pearce met the fate that awaits us all. Now he belongs to history.

The smug and self-assured, so eager to bid him farewell will soon find the publication for which they toil facing its own demise. Maybe then, the staff of The Arizona Republic will realize that they are on “the wrong side of history.”

Biden knows dementia

January 17, 2023

A childish retort to a perceived insult has long been, “I’m rubber, you’re glue, whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks to you.” It comes to mind as Joe Biden called Republicans “fiscally demented” as he disparaged GOP priorities during a speech at the National Action Network’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day annual breakfast. The network, which claims to “fight for one standard of justice, decency and equal opportunities for all people” is owned by none other than the disreputable Al Sharpton who is forever linked to his bogus 1987 defense of Tawana Brawley, a black teen who falsely claimed she was kidnapped and gang-raped by white men, including a police officer and local prosecutor. They ultimately sued and won — after a six-month grand jury investigation found that the entire episode had been a hoax. Brawley concocted the story to avoid the wrath of her stepfather after staying out late with a boyfriend.

Biden’s MLK speech is laughably notable for him calling Republicans “fiscally demented.” Dementia is a concept Biden is more than familiar with, since he increasingly exhibits signs of the mind-destroying malady. At 78, he was the oldest president ever elected. Frail Biden who has stumbled and fallen numerous times, is now 80 and less connected than ever. His fitness to lead is an obvious concern as evidenced when he was ignored during Barack Obama’s visit to the White House…even by Obama, as Biden pathetically places his hand on BO’s shoulder, trying and failing to get BO’s attention.
