Emmy Awards: Leftwing celebs get it wrong again

September 18, 2017

Mocking Pres. Trump takes center stage

The 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards took place Sunday night hosted by liberal Stephen Colbert, a flawed presidential predictorCelebs, who revel in grabbing the spotlight outdoing one another in the glam department, put their politics before their egos as they donned the same accessories: Rabid, hate-filled tirades aimed at President Trump and blue ‘ACLU Supporter’ ribbons, denoting their activism with the far left organization.  There was also a strong pro-illegal alien theme permeating the self-congratulatory awards ceremony.

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer even got into the act, making a “surprise” appearance to ridicule Pres. Trump. In a perfect world, this treacherous act should render him unemployable in Republican circles. Spicer, who once wore his flag lapel pin upside down, symbolizing distress, has reportedly turned down an offer to appear on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ with his wife.

If these were the Academy Awards, we’d advise our readers to stop wasting money on overpriced tickets and less than entertaining movies, with increasingly grotesque subject matter. Keeping the overwhelmingly liberal Hollyweird crowd basking in wealth for a career based on reading other people’s words makes no sense.

Since the soiree celebrates television productions, conserve electricity next year by clicking the “off“ button. Treat yourself with a good book. Better yet, talk to someone who matters to you.

The majority of the awards program was filled with venomous tirades directed at Donald Trump, the President of the United States. Ironically, it was televised on Constitution Day. Fortunately for the hate mongers the First Amendment gives them the freedom to engage in immature temper tantrums. The good news is the show’s ratings tanked.

Watch Colbert and his like thinkers getting it wrong here:

Constitution Day: US exceptionalism unappreciated by thugs

September 17, 2017

The use of the term “American exceptionalism,” can be traced to Alexis de Tocqueville who, in the mid 1800s, described the United States as “exceptional” based on his admiration of our founding principles of freedom and liberty, rugged individualism, and free enterprise. In 1835, he was moved to write the multi-volume Democracy in America.

President Ronald Reagan spoke of America as “a land of hope, a light unto nations, a shining city on a hill.” Recent news has marred those lofty and inspiring words. We live in a time when chronically aggrieved people revere victim status. Raised with liberal dosages of moral relativism in public schools, they take exception to defining America as exceptional since in their view, there are no better or worse standards or governments. All entities are equivalent and everything should be tolerated.

The recent headlines are troubling. Black Lives Matter mobs and their claque engage in days of violence as they protest an acquittal in the case of a white former St. Louis police officer fatally shooting a black drug dealer following a high speed chase in 2011. Their motivation for rioting is raced based, without hearing the evidence presented in court. Three police officers responding to thugs breaking windows, setting fires and throwing paint at the home of the mayor were transported to a hospital after being hit by bricks and rocks hurled at them. One officer was hit in the head and suffered a broken jaw. 

After shutting down a major highway, hundreds of hooligans stormed an upscale mall breaking windows, and chanting an anti-capitalist threat, “No Justice, No Profits!” KDSK TV-5 reporter Jason Long tweeted “almost every storefront in the Loop is destroyed.”

U2 cancelled a sold out Saturday night St. Louis concert in the wake of the riots, issuing this statement. The St Louis Symphony Orchestra canceled its Friday and Saturday performances.

The U.S. Constitution gives these thugs First Amendment protections. Where else on earth could they chaotically disrupt the lives of others without consequence? Arrests were in response to violence and assaults. Their freedom to assemble, disrupt and spew their vitriol is enshrined.

For those of us who are grateful for the blessings of living in this exceptional nation, Hillsdale College offers a free and enlightening course on the Constitution. Hillsdale titles it, “Study the greatest political document ever written by man that secures your freedom.”

Sign up. It’s guaranteed to make you more knowledgeable than the entire gang of marauders could ever hope to be.

The Law Library of Congress provides a historical overview of Constitution and Citizenship Day.

May God continue to bless America.

 


Illegal advocates demand cash, firing of Motel 6 employees

September 16, 2017

Some Motel 6 locations in the Valley have been accused of cooperating with local law enforcement, turning in the names of guests whose ID given to the desk clerk — such as Mexican voter ID cards or driver’s license — appears to indicate they are here illegally.

As sure as day follows night, the protests begin. The pro-amnesty, open border newspaper Periódico de la República — alternatively known as the Arizona Republic,  headlined, “Phoenix leaders demand Motel 6 fire employees who gave customer names to ICE.”

Those “leaders,” quickly assembled Friday to march and demand a boycott of all Motel 6 locations. They said the boycott should continue until the employees they suspect of involvement are fired. What they are accused of doing is not illegal. The shortsighted “activists” aren’t taking into consideration that a boycott would displace Hispanic maids and laborers employed by the motels.

Their actions bring to mind the economic boycott of the entire state of Arizona called for in 2010 by radical leftist AZ CD-3 U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva  (his background included under link) as a protest against SB 1070. Using the signature Alinskyite tactics of the community organizer he once was, the law had to be fought at “a political, legal and economic level,” he said. 

Grijalva remained indifferent to the fact that his actions would displace Mexicans who work in the hospitality industries. The cameras were not on them, they were focused on him, just as mics were thrust toward his face to catch his every word. The headiness of the attention captured Grijalva’s ego and unconcerned his Hispanic constituents, in his specially carved out ethnic majority district, would end up in the unemployment line.

And Motel 6? Its corporate management tweeted this conciliatory statementwhich of course, wasn’t good enough since there was no financial payout involved.

Protesters demanded the company must provide monetary compensation to the illegal families whose members faced deportation proceedings.

“We are going to fight back,” said Viri Hernandez, director of the Center for Neighborhood Leadership, a pro-immigrant advocacy group.  (Read that to include the word ‘illegal’ before immigrant) “And we’re going to make sure our economic power is not going to you. So for our community, [sic] clear message: It’s time to boycott Motel 6.”


U.S. has moral obligation to its citizens to seal the border

September 15, 2017

Normalization, pathway to citizenship, bring out of the shadows are all code words for amnesty

Immigration is a word that is frequently and intentionally misused. The media and liberal politicians have become adept at using  it to describe the invasion of the United States by illegal aliens who have entered our country by stealth.

And those illegal aliens? Consider yourself forewarned. Even the precisely descriptive term “illegal immigrant,“ by edict of Associated Press, is considered verboten. AP says people are not illegal, only actions are. Foreign nationals are no longer aliens.

Concern about illegals in the U.S. has remained steady according to Gallup polling. Fifty-nine percent of Americans say they worry “a great deal” or “a fair amount” about illegal immigration. This level of concern is typical of what Gallup has measured over the past 17 years, apart from a window between 2006 and 2011 when roughly two-thirds of Americans expressed worry. 79 % of Republicans expressed concern as opposed to 48% of Democrats. What those disparities indicate is worthy of exploration.

This 2014 poll from The Polling Company shows overwhelming support among likely voters for significantly lower immigration levels, increased enforcement and an opposition to (then) Pres. Obama’s plan to move forward with an executive action that could grant amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal aliens. 75% of likely voters want to see more enforcement of immigration laws.

According to a newly released Pew Research Center poll, 65% of Mexicans hold negative views of the United States, though they keep flooding across our border — illegally. What’s the likelihood these mostly uneducated illegals will suddenly integrate into our country, or their protesting children staging school walkouts, demonstrations and making demands  — now claiming DACA status — will become proud, assimilated Americans by virtue of an illegal executive order?

This information provides a backdrop to the current discussions surrounding “normalizing” or ultimately gifting citizenship, (despite President Trump’s protestations to the contrary), to what has been described as “about 800,000” impossible to verify claims of those seeking DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.

Breitbart News carries 9 lies about DACA Trump is buying into, It‘s chock full of top quality information.

Roy Beck, founder of Numbers USA, has an updated version of his instructive gumballs /immigration video:


DACA:Trump disappointingly pivots goes “bipartisan”

September 14, 2017

AZ Chamber’s Hamer hammers on behalf of illegals

 DACA, the acronym for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is getting a lot of play these days, mostly attempting to strum on citizens’ heartstrings with sympathetic stories of the “plight” of the so-called D.R.E.A.M.E.R.s.

It is, in fact,  a program thrust upon us as an illegal executive order (video) by Barack Obama, and is nothing less than a frontal assault on the Constitution and the rule of law. Since its inception in 2012, DACA has granted more than 800,000 recipients renewable, two-year work permits and a reprieve from deportation proceedings. A toothless “remedy,” it purportedly applies specifically  to illegals brought to the United States by their illegally invading parents before they were 16 years old. In order to qualify for this absurd generosity, they must have been age 35 or younger as of June 2012. There is no way to verify their claims, which makes enforcement of the program a complete farce — resulting in astronomical fraud rates.

Donald Trump was elected by Americans who believed his promise to secure our border, build a fortified fence and not offer incentives to invaders. His get tough on illegal immigration message was as effective and compelling as his economic message in resonating with American voters, propelling him to the front of the line of 17 GOP presidential candidates in 2016. Last week when he cut a disastrous deal with “Chuck and Nancy,” we took him to task for bending to the Democrat minority leaders’ whims.

Now the relationship appears to be ongoing. On Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi once again emerged from a meeting with President Trump sporting smiles. It’s being reported their ‘New  Deal’ specifies bipartisan legislation called the DREAM Act that provides eventual citizenship for illegals claiming they were brought here as children.

“We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides,” Pelosi and Schumer said in a joint statement.

Sorry folks.  It’s not “acceptable” to conservatives who worked to elect Trump. Rewarding demands and civil unrest staged by non-citizens  —  is not how a Representative Republic functions.

This past week The Arizona Republic newspaper once again leaped into full-blown Periódico de la República mode, giving prominence to a report titled,Arizona business leader wants Congress to legalize DACA recipients.”

And who might that “business leader” be?

None other than the reliable voice of illegal labor profiteers, Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Glenn Hamer, who Seeing Red AZ has covered previously. Two links are included in the post, Glenn Hamer: Heretic betrays GOP again, which follows Hamer’s career path from executive director of the Arizona Republican Party to endorsing radically left-wing Democrat Janet Napolitano for governor. Anything for a buck, as the saying goes.

It’s critically important to recognize the fact that these are not benign business leaders looking to grow their entities, but hard-hitting,  nefarious actors.  In July 2007, Seeing Red AZ exposed the left-of-center Arizona Chamber of Commerce’s announced plans to target Republican state lawmakers who were instrumental in guiding theFair and Legal Employment Act (more commonly known as the Employer Sanctions law) to passage.

 


McCain feigns shock over Trump’s deal with Dems

September 13, 2017

John McCain‘s blatant hypocrisy exceeds rational bounds

Claiming “I haven’t seen anything like it before,” John McCain, Arizona’s Senior Senator, (ASS) is bewildered by President Trump’s recent decision to strike a deal with Democrats. The jointly agreed upon legislative package added over $15 billion to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, extended the debt ceiling, and funded the federal government until December.

“Haven’t seen anything like it before,” McCain was recently quoted as saying. “I have no way of divining his motives. I’m a pretty intelligent guy, but I don’t understand this.”

This self-described “pretty intelligent guy,” who graduated at the bottom of his U.S. Naval Academy class, either doesn’t look in the mirror while shaving or has developed a severe case of amnesia. His entire congressional career has been spent colluding with Democrats on legislation abhorrent to grassroots Republicans.

McCain has craftily cultivated his maverick” persona to provide a flamboyant glibness to his deceit.

When President Trump responded to increasingly incendiary nuclear threats from North Korean madman Kim Jong Un, John McCain .wasted no time in issuing criticism, saying, “I take exception to the President’s comments because you’ve got to be sure that you can do what you say you’re going to do. In other words, the old walk softly but carry a big stick.” McCain joined Democrats who claimed Trump’s comments were “unhinged.”

That is until double-talking McCain issued his own threats, saying “Kim needs to know that if he acts in an aggressive fashion, the price will be extinction.”

Although Pat Buchanan’s commentary, “What McCain Means,” was written in 2008 during McCain’s failed presidential bid, the issues remain relevant. 


Miss America contestants vie to bash Pres. Trump

September 12, 2017

In case you missed it, Miss America 2018 was crowned Sunday night. But unlike pageants of the past where the high point of the evening was the portion where contestants strutted their stuff in spike heels and swim suits and the competition included mostly marginally talented, sweetly smiling young women who earnestly answered questions about their future plans to cure cancer or reach the moon, there is a new system at play.

Politics has entered the arena where a Miss Arizona, Vonda Kay Van Dyke, wooed the judges with her novel ventriloquist act, earning her the crown in 1965.

Now all the finalists are ventriloquists, mouthing the leftist political lines so in vogue at the schools they attend and with the Hollywood crowd in the films they watch. Who else to emulate but actress Gwyneth Paltrow who was at a loss for words as she hosted a DNC fundraiser at her home, and told the guest of honor President Obama: “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.”

The politically loaded questions the Miss America contestants, who must be between the ages of 18 and 24, were asked were aimed at bashing President Trump. They dealt with dissecting the president’s response regarding the Charleston riots, and whether he was guilty or innocent of colluding with the Russians.

The winner, 23-year-old Cara Mund of North Dakota, also gave a winning answer to the question about whether President Trump should have backed out of the Paris Climate Agreement on “man made climate change” and whether the decision was good or bad. Without missing a beat and sounding as though she’d been coached by Al Gore, Mund said “it was bad, because climate change exists and the U.S. needs to be at the negotiating table.”

Bingo! 

The wrong answer for many of us was the right answer to gain the crown. And she didn’t even need a ventriloquist’s dummy. Cara Mund played both roles

These are the previous Miss America winners going back to the contest’s inception in 1921, when it was simply a beauty contest without blatant political overtures.
