Arizona Democratic Party Dirty Halloween Trick Could Backfire on Kyrsten Sinema

Arizona Democratic Party Dirty Trick Could Backfire On Rep. Kyrsten Sinema in 2014 After Libertarian Voters Wanted Her Recalled In 2013

IMG_8405 

Recently, the Arizona Democratic Party (ADP) launched a dirty trick in time for Halloween that comes with no treat for Libertarian voters.  The ADP strategy could have worked a couple of cycles ago, but maybe not this time – particularly when Libertarian Mike Shipley filed recall papers against her last year.  Though the Secretary of State spokesman  said he would not order a recall election in Sinema’s case because the congresswoman is not bound by the state’s recall law, the Libertarian group still wants to invalidate her seat.  In light of the controversial mail out by the ADP, Shipley said: “Don’t underestimate Libertarians because we are here to stay.”

Political dirty tricks happen within both the Republican Party and the Democratic Party, but the ADP has sunken to an all new low this time.  It appears ADP’s arrogance with regard to Congressional District 9 underscores their belief that CD9 voters are politically under educated.

According to AZ Central:

“Obviously we prefer Kyrsten Sinema,” said Quinlan. But “our calculation is there are probably a lot of conservative voters who realize (Gammill) is a far more consistent conservative than Wendy Rogers. … We’re pretty much taking (Gammill’s) positions directly from his website and sharing them.”

We implore key swing independent voters of Arizona (now largest voting bloc) to teach Rep. Kyrsten Sinema a lesson specifically in Congressional District 9.  We also implore Sinema’s Latino and Chicano Democratic voting constituents to vote anyone but Sinema and recall to their memory her flip flop on immigration Carlos Galindo exposes repeatedly on his national political talk radio program.  Galindo is a former liberal now registered independent voter of Arizona.

Galindo wrote:

It appears Andiola’s recent departure from Sinema’s employ may have been a forced departure, based on pressure that was placed on Sinema and her congressional office for hiring a staffer who is supportive of an Immigration “advocate” who spews anti-USA rhetoric. Just as important, according to sources, Andiola was a $50,000 a year congressional office staffer allegedly mooching for money to take a trip to Washington with her mom. See screenshot below. 

ADP’s DJ Quinlan is banking on his perception of naïve Republicans believing Powell Gammill is more “conservative” than Wendy Rogers when in fact, Libertarian candidate Powell Gammill is for open borders.  It is also well known how Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema flip flopped on the immigration issue; where she gets tough on immigration on one day — while reversing her view on another day.  Unfortunately and the problem we have with Sinema is voters will not know what they will get with her in light of her many reversals and stances to include criticism with regard to her  exploiting veterans and Latinos.

Make no mistake, our group to include independent registered women, Chicanos, and Latinos want legal immigration reform.  We do not want to be used as political footballs, and while the ADP gave Sinema a free pass to the SB1225 regard, our informed community will not give her one nor will we allow her to forget it.

LIBRE: Survey: Employer-Provided Health Care Getting More Expensive

Libre Initiative

73 Percent Shifting to High-Deductible Plans

(Washington, D.C.) – A survey of employers who offer health care to their workers finds that moderate increases in premiums are expected next year, with a large majority planning to shift to less expensive plans that offer less coverage in the years ahead. The survey of 1,700 employers was conducted by Mercer, and it indicates that employers expect a 3.9 percent increase in premiums for their workers in 2015. Many say that they will hold premium increases down by managing worker schedules to keep them below 30 hours worked each week. Furthermore, 73 percent say that within 3 years they will offer a “Consumer directed health plan” which features lower premiums for the employee, but also has high deductibles. One-fifth say this will be the only plan they offer. Mercer concludes that “health reform is clearly accelerating” the trend toward these high-deductible plans.

Daniel Garza , Executive Director of The LIBRE Initiative released the following statement:

“There have been a lot of promises made by supporters of the new health care law: lower premiums, lower deficits, better choices, and a guarantee that people could keep coverage that they liked. None of this has come to pass and now in 2015, Americans will face a heftier Obamacare penalty if they cannot afford health care.

After the disastrous rollout of the new law, supporters promised to fix it. But a year later, there are no fixes and the problems are growing worse. Now it’s becoming clear that more and more workers will be forced out of plans they may like and left with few options. All the while, their out-of-pocket costs continue to rise, either on premiums or deductibles. And all we have are more broken promises from the people entrusted with fixing it.”

Sooper Mexican is Symptomatic of a Bigger Problem with Conservatives

by Bob Quasius – Recently there’s been a controversy swirling around Sooper Mexican and his profane tweets on Twitter, which resulted in a Latino Rebels critique “Where Have You Gone Sooper Mexican?”

sooper mexican

Sooper Mexican has no class at all!

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria – a liberal with much more class than Sooper Mexican

Sooper Mexican savagely attacked Cafe Con Leche Republicans for our support of immigration reform, for example calling us “maricones” (“homosexuals”) and “pendejos”, a particularly vulgar word never used in polite conversation (rhymes with “grass” and “poles”). Sooper Mexican’s vulgarity from behind a WWF style mask of anonymity embarrasses all conservatives, not just Hispanic conservatives.

Last October, Cafe Con Leche Republicans skewered Eva Longoria for her vulgar tweet calling any woman or minority “stupid” for voting for “racist/misogynistic” Mitt Romney. Unlike Sooper Mexican, Eva Longoria deserves credit for promptly apologizing for her retweet, a mistake she hasn’t repeated.

We don’t agree much with Eva Longoria’s politics, but she’s worked tirelessly on immigration reform. People on both sides of the aisle need to work together on finding practical solutions to difficult issues. Eva Longoria has shown us she has class; we can’t say the same for Sooper Mexican.

A vigorous debate over immigration reform is nothing new and should be welcomed. A healthy democracy hammers out solutions on the anvil of controversy. There are Republicans on both sides of the immigration debate who work hard and interact respectfully with their opponents.

“The person who agrees with you 80% of the time is a friend and an ally – not a 20% traitor.” – Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan 80% 20% rule

Ronald Reagan had class

Various polls peg Republican support for immigration reform including a path to citizenship at 75%, but ironically it’s a shrill part of the 25% opposition that accuses the 75% majority of being RINOS, traitors, etc., and drives many moderates in Congress to the sidelines on immigration reform.

“If you can’t win elections, you can’t govern.” – Rick Perry

Historically Republicans have always found the ‘big tent’ concept a winning strategy. In Reagan’s ‘big tent’ not all Republicans need to march ‘lock step’ on every issue, but as long as Republicans are ‘in step’ on most issues, we can come together to win elections, and iron out policy differences later.

However, how can Reagan’s ‘big tent’ work when someone is machine gunning others inside that ‘big tent’? I cannot recount how many times I have been called a “RINO”(Republican in Name Only), “open borders liberal”, “traitor”, “treasonous”, “Obama lover,” “progressive,” “illegal immigration supporter”, and countless other insults because I support immigration reform over mass deportations.

Sooper Mexican represents a disturbing trend that sadly, has taken hold in the Republican Party: the lack of civil political discourse. Bloggers, radio show hosts, and even many elected officials have seen personal benefit in polarizing and demeaning anyone who disagrees with them, and creating conflict to generate attention for themselves.

This lack of civility isn’t just directed to Democrats or liberals; as we have seen first-hand, fellow Republicans are unfairly being labeled RINOS, and in our case, subjected to profane treatment. It may generate more readers for their blog or support for their personal political ambitions in the short term, but in the long run, it undermines the party and alienates average Americans who would vote Republican but are repulsed by their behavior.

Sooper Mexican’s views on immigration are representative of just 8% of Hispanics, but his willingness to toe an ideological line has made him popular among some conservatives, especially the tea party.

Recent years have been difficult for Hispanic Republicans, as the rhetoric and demand for strict ideological purity on immigration has driven many from the party. Moreover, Democrats seek to put women and minorities into ideological boxes and criticize any woman or minority who strays from their box, which is just as unfair.

“Latinos are Republicans — they just don’t know it yet.” – Ronald Reagan

Hispanics have low turnout rates at election time and are under-represented on voter rolls. Rhetoric from both parties suppress voting by conservative Hispanics, which skews election results towards the left and reinforces the false narrative that Hispanics, and especially Hispanic immigrant, are natural Democrat voters, when poll after poll by Pew Research shows over 60% of Hispanics are center-right.

Did Kyrsten Sinema Kill A DREAMers Dream?

Was a Dreamer who may have been used as a Latino outreach puppet by a Blue Dog Democrat, fired from her job?

By Carlos Galindo

It appears Erika Andiola who prominently entered the Immigration spotlight when she milked an incident involving her Mother, an alleged prior arrest and an alleged outstanding deportation order will be leaving her employment as an Immigration Outreach staffer for Blue Dog Democrat Rep. Kyrsten Sinema AZ CD-9. See her Facebook post below:

null

Here’s another screenshot of Andiola mooching (she calls it chipping in). You will also see an appropriate response from Dee Dee Blase Garcia. Blase Garcia is a nationally recognized blogger and Politico who is beyond politically involved. She’s a mover and a shaker. Blase Garcia is former Republican turned Independent after having been disenfranchised from the GOP because of their oppressive policies towards women, children and Immigrants. Follow Dee Dee Blase Garcia here.

By the way, Andiola’s former and most recent employer, Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema has her own anti-Immigrant legislation baggage that has dogged her all the way to Washington from from Arizona after she threw the Immigrant community under the bus.

However, this blog is about Andiola and her tactics to gain attention. Andiola’s mother was picked up by ICE a few months ago. Allegedly, according to Andiola and others close to the family, Andiola’s mother was being transported to the border to be deported when the van or bus in which she was transported received a call ordering a return of Andiola’s mother to a holding facility that eventually released her on an alleged form of parole or supervision until her next court date.

However, many of the allegations made by Andiola or others were refuted by ICE. The following is a formal on the record statement from the ICE Spokesperson.

“On the record: “One of two individuals detained by ICE in Phoenix, AZ has been released. The other individual will be released imminently. Although one individual had been previously removed from the country, an initial review of these cases revealed that certain factors outlined in ICE’s prosecutorial discretion policy appear to be present and merit an exercise of discretion. A fuller review of the cases is currently on-going. ICE exercises prosecutorial discretion on a case-by-case basis, considering the totality of the circumstances in an individual case.”

On background (please attribute ICE):

ICE agents did not target these individuals because of their family member’s role with the Dream Act Coalition.

Additionally, this arrest had absolutely nothing to do with DACA; instead, it was based on information from a prior arrest.

Amber Cargile
Spokesperson
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
Phoenix, AZ”

Additional information I received was that in fact, Andiola’s mother was never en route to the border to be deported, and that the alleged call to return Andiola’s mother to the detention facility allegedly never occurred.

Well, we’ve got conflicting stories folks. Although many of us do not appreciate ICE’s tactics or past behavior, we also cannot allow those who through whatever means have gained the ear of the Immigrant, Latino and Anglo community to misrepresent situations involving the Immigrant community’s arch enemy or the Obama administration.

It’s unfortunate that Andiola is one of those Dreamers that appears to be more interested in following the Ayn Rand ideology than the Ghandi or MLK ideology, the latter being one that one would think a young dreamer would want to emulate. Sadly I’ve seen too many Dreamers more interested in making sure their mug gets on the evening news or making sure they are on the right path to climb socially. I’m not generalizing Dreamers. I have helped many Dreamers. I admire these kids. They are part of America’s future. I might compare this to the Republicans and the Tea Party. The Dems and the Pro-Immigrant community have allowed a handful of these unruly ungrateful brats to control the messaging, which has primarily consisted of Anti-USA rhetoric and anti-Obama attacks.

It appears Andiola’s recent departure from Sinema’s employ may have been a forced departure, based on pressure that was placed on Sinema and her congressional office for hiring a staffer who is supportive of an Immigration “advocate” who spews anti-USA rhetoric. Just as important, according to sources, Andiola was a $50,000 a year congressional office staffer allegedly mooching for money to take a trip to Washington with her mom. See screenshot below.

Keep your eye on Andiola, she isn’t done yet! Once a social climber, always a social climber.

“Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” – Mark Twain

by Raoul Lowery Contreras – In my 23rd year, I met U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater (R-AZ) at the University of Oregon. He signed my copy of his earthshaking book, Conscience of a Conservative.

Being a Republican before I was a “conservative” however, I answered the call to arms of my former boss United States Senator Thomas H. Kuchel (R-CA) to join the fight for the Republican 1964 Presidential nomination on the side of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller.

I was disappointed when the Goldwater wave overrode Governor Rockefeller for the nomination and further disappointed when Lyndon Baines Johnson overwhelmed Goldwater in November, 1964. The GOP was almost killed by the Democratic wave.

The day after the election, pundits of all sorts pronounced the Republican Party dead, dead forever.

Rest in Peace GOP, November 1964… I was 23.

Fifty years later, I am hearing the same words about the Republican Party being dead. More than 95% of Blacks voted for Obama for racial reasons and that won’t happen again. 73% or so of Hispanics voted for Obama, as well, with higher percentages among Puerto Ricans and Dominicans than among Cubans and Mexican Americans. Will that happen again?

Most of the pundits are ultra-liberal writers/commentators of the mass media. Then there is MSNBC’s Chris Mathews who apparently had an orgasm when Obama won in 2008 (“I Felt This Thrill Going Up My Leg”).

Are they right? History tells us they are not. Republicans were routed in 1932 but came back in 1938 when they won 81 House seats and 6 new senators, and actually did so in 1952. Republicans just missed in 1960 after 8 years of President Eisenhower.

After the Goldwater defeat, the GOP was declared dead and buried but the GOP came roaring back just two years later around the country and elected Richard Nixon in 1968.

The 1966 midterm elections were a Republican romp just two years after Goldwater was heavily defeated. 47 new Republican House members were elected; 3 new senators, 8 new governors including Ronald Reagan (CA) and George Romney of Michigan and 700 new state legislators.

Nixon was reelected by the greatest victory wave in the country since Franklin Roosevelt, a victory in 1972 even greater than Eisenhower’s second victory in 1956.

Watergate came and the GOP stumbled but would have won the 1976 Election if President Gerald Ford had just received 10,000 more votes in Ohio.

1980 came and Ronald Reagan’s win was so convincing that Jimmy Carter conceded hours before the polls closed in California, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii and Alaska.

He did better in 1984. In 1988 George H.W. Bush was elected President and carried forth the Reagan/Bush policies for another 4 years.

The Republican Party is not dead, though Democrat partisans wishfully insist that it is.

For example, the Democrat Latino Decisions (LD) group of Hispanic academics based at the University of Washington has published their projections of a growing Latino electorate and how it feels now and will feel in the future if there is no Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR). Despite the fact that it was Democrats led by Harry Reid and Barack Obama that torpedoed the 2006-7 Bush CIR proposal, Latino Decisions tells us that Latinos will blame Republicans even if Obama sits on his hands and allows CIR to die.

More importantly Latino Decisions predicts growing Hispanic electorates in their projections but insist on a static 25% of the Latino vote going Republican in their future scenarios.

That, however, is a faulty assumption that destroys their conclusions of how Latinos will vote. They assume, wrongly, that the GOP Hispanic vote will remain at 25% despite the fact that the Hispanic Republican vote has approached 50 percent in past elections; i.e. Hispanic votes have been documented only since 1968.

Their 25% is based on the Romney Hispanic vote of 2012. Belying that assumption are actual Hispanic votes cast for John McCain — 31% and George W. is credited with 44% in 2004. No one knows how Hispanics voted in 1952 and 56 but we can guess that they voted for their Commanding General just like the rest of America did.

The percentage is the key. But it is not when one uses a static 25% based on an outlier election result of 2012.

We know this, since Hispanic votes have been counted and studied, each Republican that has earned 35% or more of the Hispanic vote has won the Presidency; that includes Nixon, Reagan, Bush I and Bush II.

hispanics juntos con romney

Can Republicans increase their Hispanic vote by a third more than Mitt Romney received in 2012? Fact: Hispanics hold two governorships (Brian Sandoval in Nevada, Susanna Martinez in New Mexico) and, one U.S. Senator named Marco Rubio.

Do pundits and Latino Decisions think that more Hispanics won’t vote Republican in 2016 if one of those three Hispanic political giants is on the Republican Presidential ticket?

If they do, they are blind and/or consider Hispanics to be stupid.

LIBRE: Minimum Wage Workers Protest for More Pay

Growing the Economy is the Best Way to Raise Wages

(Washington, D.C.) – Fast food workers in many parts of the country today intend to walk out on their jobs in protest of low wages. Press reports indicate these workers support a doubling of the minimum wage to $15.00 per hour. This walkout – which is financed by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) – is the most recent in a series of strikes in major U.S. cities. Supporters of the minimum wage increase for fast food workers say a higher salary is more important now because while fast food jobs used to be primarily taken by teens, many workers are now older and supporting families. Small business advocates argue that raising the minimum wage has the effect of forcing employers to increase their use of technology to replace personnel, reduce employee hours worked, or cut costs in other ways.

Daniel Garza, Executive Director of The LIBRE Initiative released the following statement:

“While the struggle of these workers to make ends meet is legitimate, their complaints are aimed at the wrong target. Minimum wage increases come at a cost to job creators who will inevitably pass the economic burden on to clients and potential employees. Empirical research shows that such increases tend to reduce employment of the very ones requesting higher wages. The best way to get employers to raise wages is to create more jobs, grow the economy, put more money in the pockets of consumers and decrease regulations like the Affordable Care Act that are causing restaurants to lay off workers and cut hours.

More than four years into what the White House calls ‘a recovery’, family incomes have fallen, small businesses are hurting, and a shift in the job market has teens and older Americans competing for the same entry-level, low wage jobs. Fast food workers and others should demand a new approach from Washington – one that doesn’t rely on more borrowing, more taxes, and more regulation. Instead, we need to get government out of the way of entrepreneurs who know how to grow businesses and create economic opportunity.”

Hispanics = Republicans? Pretty Much!

The tough prosecuting District Attorney and her husband, lifetime Democrats both, went to lunch with Republican friends and a couple hours later came away exclaiming, “I’ll be damned, we’re Republicans.”

So told New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez to Republicans in 2012. She had discovered a famous quip of former California Governor and U.S President Ronald Reagan, “Latinos are Republican. They just don’t know it yet.”

To understand both Governor Martinez and President Reagan one has to know what the three basic areas of political policy are in the Republican Party.

There are three “legs” that make up the philosophical base of Grand Old Party (GOP) thinking: National Security, Social/family/individual responsibility, and Economics.

Republican Value – National Security

National Security has been a huge element in GOP thinking since December 7, 1941. The Republican 80th Congress created the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from the remnants of the World War II Office of Strategic Services (OSS) which President Roosevelt created despite his Secretary of State Cordell Hull had declared, “Gentlemen do not read other Gentleman’s mail.”

Democrat mistakes that led to modern Republicans. In 1949 Democrat Secretary of State, Dean Acheson, declared Korea outside the America’s Pacific defense perimeter. Result, North Koreans Communists aided by the Soviet Union invaded South Korea. 34,000 Americans died.

The GOP was successful in nominating and electing General Dwight D. Eisenhower (Ike) President and Richard Nixon Vice President in 1952. Ike ended the Korean War. He created the MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) policy that served the United States well for over 30 years against the Soviet Union. He kept thousands of American troops in Europe and Japan/Philippines/Korea. He kept us out of Vietnam despite the French begging us for help.

Richard Nixon inherited Vietnam, the worst foreign policy mistake of the 20th Century. On his first day in office (January 20, 1969) he ordered troops out of Vietnam where eventually 58,000 Americans died in the amateur Kennedy/Johnson folly. Nixon started the fall of the Soviet Empire by diplomacy with China.

Our real enemy today is Muslim terrorism, not the Soviet Empire which imploded thanks to Republican policies of MAD and intelligent diplomacy. It didn’t hurt that Ronald Reagan started rearming the USA, a policy heavily supported by Hispanics whose individual support was highlighted by more Hispanic military service than in all U.S. History. Today, 20%, one in five Combat Arms soldiers and Marines are Hispanic, almost all Mexican Americans.

Military strength, a strong U.S. Navy and a policy of assistance to varied allies have kept a world-wide American presence in support of American interests throughout the world. That has been Republican policy since 1941. There are, however, isolationists who demand a U.S. pullback to our borders because they don’t believe in our being “Policeman of the World.” Our interests need defending no matter where in the world.

Republican Value – Social/Family/Individual responsibility

Social/Family/Individual responsibility covers a huge swath of American behavior. Abortion, forced birth control, food stamps, welfare, the destruction of family, and federal stripping of 1st Amendment constitutional protections in religion and religious practice are huge issues with Hispanics.

73 percent of Black babies are born out of wedlock, 52% of Hispanic and 30 percent of White babies are also born out of wedlock. This is a disaster. Abortion speaks for itself.
Obama care is forcing religious institutions like hospitals and universities to violate their own beliefs in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution. Record numbers are drawing food stamps and disability funding and labor participation is at modern lows. Hard work doesn’t count any longer for many, but not Hispanics.

A Safety Net is fine. The Hispanic family, however, is the foundation of civilization; food stamps, welfare and no-growth Democratic policies are destroying the family.

Republican Value – Economics

Economics supported by Republicans include less government intrusion, a fairer tax system for all, less over-regulation, a free labor market and a government that encourages growth, job creation and more domestic energy production.

80,000 pages of tax laws and an Internal Revenue Service that is unfair for political reasons must be corrected in the interest of fairness. President George W. Bush’s tax reforms have been set in concrete despite fervent opposition by Democrats. More needs to be done. A tax code of ten pages will unleash economics which can revitalize the economy more than the industrial revolution did.

Basically, the Republican economics policy is two words: ECONOMIC GROWTH. Target, four or more percent growth.

The military record shows that Hispanics have supported a strong international USA since 1941 (31 Medals of Honor since 1941). President George W. Bush raked in over 90% Hispanic approval when he attacked Afghanistan in 2001. Surveys show that Hispanics are generally pro-life, pro-marriage and are not afraid of hard work. Mexican American labor force participation, for example, is the highest in the country. Hispanics thrive on economic growth because they are workers, hard workers.

Was Reagan right? Yes, Hispanics are natural Republicans!
