Truth is inconvenient, so why not lie…even on Presidents Day?

February 17, 2020

Since readership has fallen to the level of a cadaver’s blood pressure, the inconsequential, radically leftist local newspaper is willing to use any provocative means in its attempt to keep itself afloat. Emaciated columnist EJ Montini’s recent effort is a case in point. His column is titled, “Bloomberg is taking the heat, but Trump is the racist.”

Never mind that his premise is false or even that he knows it — having worked for the Hillary-endorsing, illegal alien invasion-supporting Arizona Republic since 1986, the concept of truth is too exotic to comprehend. Montini has been able to hang on through buyouts and wholesale firings of his co-workers because he is a willing sycophantic distorter and unconcealed liar, traits he has blatantly honed past retirement age.

Still the desperate, failing purveyor of falsehoods begs for readers with a giveaway. Outlandishly claiming:

“You can play a vital role in supporting local journalism that you and your community can trust. With a subscription, you can help our journalists hold those in power accountable,” by offering a “Presidents Day sale subscription — $1 for 3 months.”

A penny a paper is about what the far-left blather is worth. And those “journalists”?  They are mostly ASU Cronkite propagandized student interns, marinated in left-wing party line tripe working for a byline, lacking editors or an office.

This frantic deal comes from the shaky, homeless newspaper which recently acknowledged getting a whole lot factually incorrect, though its editorial policy and leftward skew didn’t make the embarrassingly long ‘Corrections and Clarifications’ list.


AZ 2nd Amendment rally at state capitol draws massive crowd

February 16, 2020

One place you can be sure AZ U.S. Senate candidate Mark Kelly didn’t show his face was at the Second Amendment rally at the state capitol Saturday. Far leftist, Soros-supported Kelly, who is running as a Democrat for a U.S. Senate seat occupied by Sen. Martha McSally, is a gun restrictionist, who with his wife, former AZ U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, founded organizations whose ultimate purpose is gun confiscation.

Many of the thousands of attendees at the event wore shirts emblazoned with the words, “Gun control is not about guns, it’s about control.”

Kelly, along with Giffords, runs the major gun control-focused group Giffords PAC,* which between its hybrid PAC and 501(c)(4) nonprofit Giffords,* spent nearly $7 million to aid Democrat congressional candidates, while targeting Republicans in 2018.

This Feb. 2019 SRAZ post,Mark Kelly, AZ gun hypocrite, announces for US Senate,” exposes Democrats and their gun hypocrisy. Breitbart News, following a tip, photographed Mark Kelly making personal gun purchases at a Tucson gun store.

The high citizen turnout at AZ’s 7th annual “Celebrate and Protect the Second Amendment rally was driven by concerns over gun control legislation introduced by Democrats this session intended to limit firearm sales and transfers, expand background checks and ban high capacity rifles. Read Senate Bill 1624.

Gun restrictionist Mark Kelly is challenging Arizona incumbent Republican Sen. McSally. A graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, she previously represented Arizona’s second congressional district for two terms in the House of Representatives. She served 26 years in the U.S. Air Force, retiring in 2010 as a full Colonel. As the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat and first to command a fighter squadron in combat in U.S. history, she respects the unique right we have as American citizens enshrined in the Second Amendment.

Arizonans who value their constitutional based rights understand the importance of this election.

Leftist NYT’s Krugman: Bernie “Isn’t a Socialist”

February 15, 2020

Media bias now embraces lying

If it seems as though there’s a new leftward-skewed report flying our way with each blink of an eye, it’s because the pre-election bombardment is tuned to fever pitch after the impeachment hoax failed. Count on it not to let up even after President Trump wins reelection. If anything, the desperate Democrat’s assault will intensify. 

We tune into Fox News programming and tap Breitbart and The Daily Caller with regularity, but some of the conservative sites that were in the forefront of paving the way might get forgotten in the overload. Media Research Center’s NewsBusters is always topical and presents in-depth investigations, documenting media bias. Brent Bozell is the Founder and President of the Media Research Center, having started it in 1987. Tim Graham, who wrote the article we’re directing you to today, is Executive Editor of NewsBusters and is the Media Research Center’s Director of Media Analysis — conducting thorough fact-checking.

As most conservatives are aware, The New York Times is a purveyor of radical leftist slop. Today we direct our readers to Tim Graham’s exposé: PANTS ON FIRE Paul Krugman Headline: ‘Bernie Sanders Isn’t a Socialist.’

Krugman, author of “Conscience of a Liberal,” supported Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid and has been a relentless critic of President Trump and his winning polices. He has no credibility when it comes to discerning whether Sanders “isn’t a Socialist.”

In his book, Krugman, blaming far left losses on Republicans, deceitfully wrote:

The changing politics of race made it possible for a revived conservative movement, whose ultimate goal was to reverse the achievements of the New Deal, to win national elections – even though it supported policies that favored the interests of a narrow elite over those of middle- and lower-income Americans.

Sanders,78, is a self-described Democratic Socialist, believing in Marxist-based collectivism, who runs as an Independent. He caucuses with the congressional Democrats, since that’s how his voice is heard and his votes are counted. He suffered a heart attack in October and doctors inserted two stents in one of Sanders’ blocked arteries.

Political extremist, abortion proponent and open borders supporter, Sanders and his wife honeymooned in the former Soviet Union. It’s time for them to visit Venezuela or Cuba to experience the “joys” of Socialism.

Most of us were taught at a young age that you’re judged by the company you keep. These are the political radicals who are supporting Bernie Sanders‘ 2020 presidential campaign.


Suicidal, leftist newspapers die by their own hand

February 14, 2020

McClatchy news conglomerate files bankruptcy to shed costs of print and speed shift to digital

We’ve all heard of the term, “death by a thousand cuts,” which describes a series of miscalculations culminating in a slow and painful demise. The newspaper industry is stunningly illustrative of that idiom. Bonded to delivering a leftist perspective and delivering daily insults to readers, many have not only fallen victim to the digital age, but also to their own venomous spews aimed at President Trump.

TheLetter from Leadership,” signed by Chief Executive Officer Craig Forman informing that McClatchy newspaper publishing company has filed for bankruptcy begins with these ominous words:

On February 13, 2020, we announced that we are commencing a restructuring under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code to provide McClatchy with immediate protection while we pursue approval of our proposed restructuring plan and work to definitively address the Company’s funded debt, strengthen our balance sheet, and address our pension obligations moving forward.”

While this is obviously a sad milestone after 163 years of family control, McClatchy remains a strong operating company and committed to essential local news and information,” said Kevin McClatchy, chairman of the company that has carried his family name since the days of the California Gold Rush. “While we tried hard to avoid this step, there’s no question that the scale of our 75-year-old pension plan – with 10 pensioners for every single active employee – is a reflection of another economic era.” Read more here.

This dismal admission is accompanied by a YouTube video, titled,McClatchy Transformation,” in case its employees and debtors have difficulty grasping the words. A notice accompanying the video notes “comments are turned off.”

A separate Bloomberg Report foretells the coming death of newspapers. Charles Munger, a newspaper company executive as well as a Berkshire Hathaway Inc. vice chairman, said U.S. newspapers have no future.

“Technological change is destroying the daily newspapers in America,” Munger said Wednesday in Los Angeles at the annual meeting of Daily Journal Corp., the publishing company where the billionaire businessman is chairman. “The revenue goes away and the expenses remain and they’re all dying.”

Berkshire, the conglomerate controlled by Warren Buffett, announced last month that it would sell off its newspaper holdings.

Seeing Red AZ has frequently written about the death spiral in which the Hillary-endorsing, open borders promoting Arizona Republic newspaper has placed itself. Most recently the local Gannett publication made the news as an albatross with this Phoenix Business Journal headline,Analysis: Arizona Republic’s circulation decline among steepest for Gannett papers.” A success-based business model takes root in not routinely lobbing insult-laden spit wads at paying customers. This strategic concept is foreign to the failing newspaper that was originally known as the Arizona Republican, when it was founded in 1890. Today’s edition buries two pro-Trump articles on Page 6 of the USA Today insert. ($60M+ raised for Trump in January) and (Poll: 6 in 10 doing better, credit Trump).

Gannett has its own headaches as detailed in this Forbes Business report, Reasons Why Gannett Stock Has Yet To Find A Bottom.”


 Bye, bye Biden?

February 13, 2020

How long before we see a repeat of the 1987 headline, minus the previous revelations of “plagiarism and distortions“? This all caps headline topped the front page of the Florida Sun Sentinel 33 years ago.

BIDEN BOWS OUT REVELATIONS OF PLAGIARISM, DISTORTIONS FORCE HIM TO HALT PRESIDENTIAL BID

Former Vice President and U.S. Senator Joe Biden is clearly on a personal downhill spiral as well as not faring well with Democrat voters. As the New Hampshire Democrat Primary votes were being tallied, Biden, who recently trailed Buttigieg, Sanders and Warren in the Iowa caucus, impetuously exited New Hampshire, opting not to meet with his supporters or issue a statement as his numbers continued to plunge. Instead he headed to South Carolina to prepare for the next primary, which won‘t take place until Feb. 29. Biden appears to be skipping the Feb. 22 Nevada caucus.

As Biden has declined both physically and politically, his gaffes have accelerated. He recently insulted a college coed at a campaign forum who asked him a reasonable question. He responded by calling her alying dog-faced pony soldier.She attended the event as part of a student trip.

Not only is Joe Biden’s rationality deprived of oxygen, his campaign is not generating the necessary cash flow to stay afloat. These are the most recent FEC finance reports filed by of all of the presidential candidates.

In 1988, Biden required two brain surgeries to deal with cranial aneurysms, or brain bleeds. His eye eerily filled with blood at a town hall in September 2019.

It’s obviously past time for him to reassess his future plans and enjoy his time with family. Son Hunter can certainly afford to take Papa Joe out for a Grand Slam at Denny‘s.


AZ AG Brnovich wins stay on ballot harvesting law

February 12, 2020

Voter fraud at issue

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has granted Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s motion to stay the Court’s mandate in the DNC v. Hobbs case. The Feb. 11, 2020 order ensures Arizona’s ban on ballot harvesting and the law regarding out-of-precinct voting will remain in place until the U.S. Supreme Court has a chance to hear the appeal of the case.

“Our job is to defend the law and we’re not going to let out-of-state special interests systematically dismantle our election integrity safeguards,” said Attorney General Mark Brnovich. “Arizonans should determine what common sense voter fraud laws are appropriate for our state.”

The court order can be read here.

Democrats refer to curtailment of the nefarious scheme known as ballot harvesting as, “voter suppression.” Election integrity is not on the left’s radar.

The Federalist’s Eric Eggers addresses the issue in this illuminating commentary,How Ballot-Harvesting Became The New Way To Steal An Election,” which reveals the widespread and deceptive practices associated with ballot harvesting.

Seeing Red AZ has exposed this shady practice and the troubling ramifications, eroding citizen confidence in election integrity since 2012. This is a sampling:

Oct. 19, 2016: 2016 Election rigged? Of course it’s rigged

March 10, 2016: AZ Gov. Ducey signs ballot harvesting / felony bill

Feb. 9, 2016: AZ GOP Chair Robert Graham’s ballot harvesting amnesia (now former chair)

Aug. 28, 2015: Alarming! 100%+ voter registration rates

Oct. 28, 2014: Democrats engage in voter fraud, ‘ballot harvesting’

Aug. 4, 2014: Ballot harvesting alive and well in AZ despite law

Trump storms New Hampshire in advance of Dem primary

February 11, 2020

On the eve of today’s New Hampshire Democrat primary, President Donald Trump swooped into Manchester for another of his “Keep America Great” packed rallies (photos). Many of his thousands of supporters camped out overnight in the rain and snow to see him. Last year, he broke the attendance record at the SNHU Arena (which holds approximately 12,000). Yesterday’s unable to be accommodated, overflow crowd remained and enthusiastically watched the rally on large screens.

The loyal and extraordinary support Trump engenders was characterized on the front page of this morning’s edition of the seriously failing, Hillary-endorsing, Arizona Republic as his “victory-and-vengeance tour,” following his acquittal on bogus impeachment charges led by desperate congressional Democrats.

A must read in advance of today’s tabulation is,Bernie Owes Obama Big Time.” Barack Obama set the stage for the Vermont socialist’s rise to national prominence. But the Democrat’s Marxist coming-out party happened too soon for America.

Author Karin McQuillan is a clear-eyed observer of the political scene, as evidenced by this zinger: “The growing power of the hard Left within the Democratic Party’s ranks is not new. It is not the result of Trump derangement. It is the cause of Trump derangement.” McQuillan’s first career was as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, providing her with the insight she needs to make that ‘diagnosis.’

Polls opened Monday at midnight at Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, traditionally the first primary in the nation. Statewide vote totals will be reported here. Polls close today at 7:00 pm (ET).
