Another New Poll: Sinema & McSally in Dead Heat, Garcia Nearly Tied with Ducey

 

A new Gravis Marketing poll finds Democrat Kyrsten Sinema in a dead heat with Republican Martha McShifty in the race for US Senate and — good news — Democrat candidate for Governor David Garcia is within 4 points of Republican Doug Ducey where the margin of error is 3.3 points.

 

Gravis, a nonpartisan research firm, conducted a random survey of 882 registered, likely voters in Arizona from Sept. 5-7. It found that Trump is very unpopular, with 47% saying they “strongly disapprove” of his job performance. This could become important because McSally has snuggled up close to Trump.

The entire nation is watching the Arizona race for US Senate, which has been marked by stupid, false and nasty attack ads by McSally. See McSally ad lies to denigrate the First Amendment rights of Americans.

US Congress member Sinema supports full access to healthcare. “We need to fix the parts of the system that are broken while protecting the things that are working — like ensuring coverage for the 2.8 million Arizonans with pre-existing conditions. We need to protect Medicare, Kids Care, and AHCCCS — critical programs that Arizonans count on for affordable, quality care. We need to fight back against misguided proposals like an “age tax” that would force Arizona seniors to pay up to five times more for their care,” she says on Tucson.com.

 

Sinema also supports improving health care for veterans, funding military bases in Arizona, citizenship for Dreamers and protecting federal funding for Arizona public schools.

McSally voted against Obamacare, for raising premiums for seniors and for abolishing coverage of pre-existing conditions.

McSally ad lies to denigrate the First Amendment rights of Americans

We have all seen, ad nauseam, the political attack ads from Martha McSally against Kirsten Sinema. The message of the ad is not as important as the imagery it seeks to convey in the ads. McSally wants to portray Sinema as some “lefty looney” in a pink tutu in contrast to her bad-ass “woman warrior” in a flight suit.

If a male candidate were running these ads against Sinema it would be pilloried as sexist and misogynist … because it is. A woman running this ad against another woman should not get a pass just because she is a woman.

 

There is also the subtext of the McSally ad objecting to Sinema having exercised her constitutional First Amendment rights of free speech and assembly to petition the government in opposition to the Iraq War — an unnecessary and illegal war sold by the Bush administration with falsified intelligence of “weapons of mass destruction” and war fever propaganda from the Bush administration.

Millions of Americans, and millions of people around the world, marched in protest and opposition to the Iraq War. McSally wants to convey the Bush administration view that “You are either with us, or you are against us,” i.e.,  you either support this unnecessary and illegal war, or you support “the enemy,” a false dichotomy designed to question the loyalty and patriotism of Americans who opposed the Iraq War, as it turned out, quite rightly so.

 

Apparently McSally is still bitter and resentful  of Americans’ opposition to the Iraq War. Too bad. Get over it, lady.

What the Republicans Have Done….

 

Posted on September 12, 2018 by David Gordon

 

https://blogforarizona.net/what-have-the-republicans-done-to-us/#more-69480

Recently on YouTube, I happened by a scene from one of the all-time great comedies Monty Python’s “Life of Brian.” While not as good as “The Holy Grail,” there are many funny moments.

The scene which inspired this piece (link below) is when the Judean revolutionaries ask “What have the Romans Ever Done for Us?” The gathering then brought up the many contributions the Romans did make to the Judean Society. It is a very funny scene.

With that in mind, it came to mind to write down what have the Republicans done to us at the State and Federal Level over the last 30 years. They have:

* Increased our national debt from one trillion to over $20 trillion in less than 40 years (It took a little over 200 years to get up to the first trillion) by promoting the tried and failed doctrine of trickle-down economics coupled with ill-advised increased defense spending on systems that do not meet the threats of the 21st Century. The Governor of Arizona and his allies in the legislature still cling to this philosophy despite its failure on a national and state basis (think Kansas).

 

* Widened the inequality between the rich and the poor while squeezing the middle class. Look at all the social and economic justice indicators for Arizona. We are well below the national average in areas like education, health care, and child care. We are at the bottom in the Southwest region with all the blue states beating us in virtually every category.

 

* Expanded the ranks of the medically uninsured.

* Passed tax cuts that have not been paid for while ignoring funding education, environmental protection, feeding the hungry, and infrastructure. Look at Arizona where, with a balanced budget requirement, tax cuts for corporations and the rich have been a perennial favorite among Republican legislators while programs favoring education (except for the Koch Learning Centers), infrastructure, and childcare/protection have been starved.

 

* Obstructed measures on infrastructure, health care reform, and supreme court/lower court nominations from a President that was elected by the popular vote as well as the Electoral College. In Arizona, our Governor packed the Supreme Court with like-minded Conservatives who threw out the Invest in Ed and Outlaw Dirty Money Initiatives.

 

* Started ill-planned wars that have not ended in the Middle East. In Arizona, we have legislators like Mark Finchem that have used these wars as a fear-mongering tactic by falsely claiming ISIS forces are hiding in the Mexican deserts waiting for the order to attack.

 

* Ignored facts about what will be best for the people and the science of climate change and environmental protection. In Arizona, look at the opposition from Republican and Reactionary Conservative elements to Proposition 127, The Clean Energy and Healthy Arizona Initiative

.

* Made it easy for Dark Money Interests to create an oligarchical system in this country. Again Arizona is a noteworthy test case where Republican Legislators led by J.D. Mesnard, Vince Leach, John Kavanagh, John Allen, Nancy Barto, Steve Yarbrough, and Heather Carter have stymied Democratic efforts by the citizens of Tempe to have campaign donations fully disclosed.

 

* Appointed reactionary judges who want to go back to a time before voting rights, marriage rights, and a Woman’s Right to Choose was the law of the land. Again, Governor Ducey has stacked the court with like-minded Conservatives that have held back voter-backed initiatives.

 

* Enabled Nazis and White Supremacists to come out of their gutters and run in the Republican Party (Obama’s comment on this in his 9/7/18 speech was priceless.) In Arizona, our Governor has taken pictures with White Supremacists. Either he knew what he was doing and that should disqualify him for reelection or he was stupid or that should disqualify him too. We have a Republican named Don Stringer who won his primary despite saying that “there are not enough white kids to go around” when discussing public education.

 

So when someone says look what the Republican Party has done for the country, say yeah and repeat all these points. People need to get out and vote in larger numbers and margins than before. The soul of our nation and all the social justice, environmental, and economic progress over the last century is at stake and we have to stand up and fight for all of it. Like former President Obama said in his speech on 9/7/18: “Do not wait for the Messiah…… It is up to you.”

….Never forget: what the deep state wants… you to remember about 9/11…

….Never forget: what the deep state wants… you to remember about 9/11…

This is the mantra. The mantra that is repeated in the wake of every major false flag, every psychologically traumatizing incident that the deep state wishes to become a rallying cry for their next agenda item.

And so it is completely unsurprising that this mantra has been invoked to remind the public of that foundational event of the age of terror, 9/11.

“Never forget,” we are told by the mockingbirds of the establishment press every year come September. And when I say “every year” I mean every / single / year / without / fail. (Well, sometimes it’s a fail, but you get what I mean).

But never forget what? That is the question.

Never forget that false flag terrorism has been used time and time again throughout history to whip up war hysteria among the public? Never forget that the Afghan war and the war of terror in general was based on the lie of 9/11? Never forget that the official government conspiracy theory of 9/11, the 9/11 Commission Report, is a tissue of lies and omissions based on torture testimony that would be inadmissible in any court and is self-contradictory to boot? Never forget that official government cover-ups into the events have relied on outright lies, confiscation and memory holing of key evidence that proves that 9/11 was not the work of the magical cave-dwelling dialysis patient and his band of box-cutter-wielding henchmen?

No, of course not. “Never forget” the officially sanctioned, government-approved lessons of 9/11, silly! That’s what “never forget” means.

Never forget that it was those scary dirty bearded Muslim boogeymen who did 9/11, and it was definitely the Muslims who were cheering the destruction of the Towers, not the Israeli Mossad agents who were there to “document the event.”

Never forget that it was those damn dirty Afghans who were just begging to be smart bombed on 9/11, despite the fact that 92% had never even heard of 9/11 in a 2010 poll. (They must have forgotten about it in the meantime.)

Never forget that the fact that every single major terror bust since 9/11 has turned out to be a plot instigated, planned, funded and “busted” by the FBI just means that the FBI’s loyal agents are really really really good at their jobs!

Never forget that the American public was given not one, not two, not three, but four separate, conflicting stories about the lack of air defense on the morning of 9/11, and that 9/11 Commissioners wanted to bring criminal charges against Pentagon officials for their deliberate lies . . . uhhhh, hold on. Actually, maybe it’s better if you forget that one.

Never forget that the laws of physics just don’t apply at certain times and places. (The northeastern United States on 9/11 was one of those times and places.)

Never forget that the mistranslated videotape obtained under dubious circumstances in late 2001 proved Osama Bin Laden’s culpability for 9/11 once and for all . . . even if the dastardly arch-terrorist mastermind repeatedly denied any involvement in the most spectacular terrorist attack in history up to that point.

Never forget that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was the 9/11 mastermind “from A to Z.” Please do forget that everything obtained from him was torture testimony inadmissable in any court of law and that he also falsely confessed to crimes he did not (and could not have) committed.

Never forget that Wirt Walker III, a Bush family relative and a business partner of Marvin Bush, was COMPLETELY CLEARED of any 9/11 insider trading because, after all, the FBI’s investigation of him “revealed no ties to terrorism or other negative information.”

Never forget that Iran was probably behind 9/11, too. Somehow. The details are unimportant, just trust us.

Never forget that Christine Todd-Whitman is now a hero of the resistance so we should never acknowledge that she is directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of 9/11 first responders and many thousands who are still dying from the toxic dust at Ground Zero.

Never forget that two airplanes can completely pulverize three of the largest skyscrapers in the world, bringing them directly down into the path of most resistance at freefall acceleration, and if you question this fact you’re a lizard-fearing loony who deserves nothing but scorn.

Never forget that if NIST ever revealed to the public exactly how they got their computer models to replicate the miraculous self-immolation of WTC7 it would “jeopardize public safety,” so they classified that data for your own good!

Never forget that Rumsfeld’s “war on bureaucracy”—declared on 9/10 in response to the uncomfortable issue of the Pentagon’s missing trillions—must have been successful, because you never heard about it again!

Never forget that the war of terror will never ever be over until every last opponent of the New World Order is eliminated from the planet. But feel free to forget the actual legal “justification” for that war.

Never forget that if you have any questions about the official government-approved story of 9/11 (you know, like those vile victims’ family members, first responders, military officers, American congressmen and women, intelligence agents, foreign dignitaries, 9/11 commissioners and other conspiracy nutjobs) then you are unpatriotic slime . . . and potentially a terrorist just asking to be locked up for life.

So, there you have it. The things you’re actually not supposed to forget about 9/11. Now just sit back, wave your Chinese-made plastic American flag and join us in this year’s celebration memorial at Ground Zero, then go back to your daily life. Like a good citizen.
