Celebrating Hispanic History Month with bile spew, deceit

September 16, 2019

Perusing the Internet can sometimes stop reasonable people — especially those with functioning memories — dead in their tracks. This was especially true when stumbling upon the pop culture website “Popsugar.” Be aware that neither the author of the article nor the editor know the difference between a “Congresswoman” and state legislative district Representative, as evidenced by the headline.

It was shocking to find a warning emanating from our own State Capitol…issued by Isela Blanc, a Dem LD 26 legislator who came to the United States illegally, but was granted citizenship via the 1986 amnesty.

Hurling the now trendy pejorative, “racist” which is tossed around with impunity by the radical left, she mentions former Arizona Congressman J.D.Hayworth, tarring the six-term U.S. Representative with that vicious untruth.

But Blanc goes soft describing the “kindly government teacher turned mayor” who she campaigned and worked for in the infamous campaign of 2006. The so-called “kindly” guy was none other than Harry Mitchell, who used a far less than kindly image of Hayworth during his election challenge. Mitchell callously portrayed the congressman, a husband and father, horrifically centered in the crosshairs of a rifle scope in a televised campaign ad. 

The article should serve as a warning for every sincere American citizen, regardless of party affiliation, who truly wants to stop the flood of illegals.

We are reaping the bitter harvest of the open borders, amnesty crowd, exemplified by then-Congressman John Shadegg, who used the New York Times to accuse Arizonans supportive of border security of beingxenophobic and intolerant.”  Such deep thinkers have the gall to claim to be conservative, but will go to the mat for the cheap illegal labor and their profiteers who are reliably these agreeable sycophant’s deep-pocketed campaign donors.

Watch out, also, for those who desire to have provisional ballots counted as regular votes. They and their advocates walk among us. Stay involved. Stay alert.

Ducey bypasses GOP applicants, picks another Dem judge

September 15, 2019

Hands out judicial appointments to Democrats as though there were no Republicans on the vetted lists he receives from judicial selection commissions

With this hyperbolic announcement Gov. Doug Ducey, who twice ran as a Republican, boldly shows his leftist stripes by appointing yet another Democrat to the judicial bench. Superior Court Judge David Gass has been elevated to the Arizona Court of Appeals.

Among the accolades Ducey heaped on his new appointee was pointing out that he “served as counsel to the Democratic Caucus of the Arizona House of Representatives and currently serves on the Maricopa County Superior Court where he has been for the past 10 years after his appointment by Governor Napolitano.” Ducey didn’t miss a trick, adding that earlier in his career, Gass “clerked for then Arizona Court of Appeals Judge Ruth McGregor,“ another Democrat.

Those are definitely credentials that warm the cockles of the Republican base, whose votes put him in office, first as state treasurer and then for two terms in the lofty ninth floor governor‘s office.

The gaseous Gass appointment was made to fill the vacancy created by the appointment of Justice James P. Beene to the Arizona Supreme Court. Currently, Ducey has far outpaced hyper-partisan Democrat Gov. Janet Napolitano who also had an aversion to Republican judges, as SRAZ pointed out in 2007. So far during his terms, Ducey has made 26 cross-party judicial appointments — far outpacing his predecessors — leftist Napolitano at 16 or Republican Jan Brewer who jumped the political fence 7 times.

On the governor’s office home page is a box containing these words:

AtYOURService

Connect. Engage. Speak out.

Don’t kid yourself thinking the Guv actually wants to hear from you. He’s obviously still busy channeling his RINO McMentor. Ducey’s first job when he arrived in Arizona to attend ASU was working at Cindy Hensley McCain’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship empire, which fostered a enduring friendship between Ducey, later including his wife, and the McCain’s. John McCain reveled in his “maverick” status, even bucking the Republican Party with his thumb-in-the-eye, “thumb’s down” final senate vote. (brief video.)  Ducey was an able pupil.


AZ US Rep. Andy Biggs chairs House Freedom Caucus

September 14, 2019

Arizona Republicans have another feather in their MAGA hat, as Rep. Andy Biggs (CD-5) has been elected as the new chairman of the House Freedom Caucus.

The group is home to the crème de la crème of conservative House members. Arizonans can be justifiably proud that our entire GOP delegation are members of the influential group which was formed in 2015 and has grown to weld considerable influence. Other members are U.S. Reps. Paul Gosar (CD-4); David Schweikert (CD-6); and Debbie Lesko (CD-8).

Biggs, a retired attorney, previously served in the Arizona Legislature 14 years, the last 4 as AZ Senate President.

Conservative Review gives Rep. Biggs a Liberty Score of 100% and a letter designation of “A.”


Daniel McCarthy: Exodus’ golden calf revisited

September 13, 2019

President Trump’s unequivocal support of Sen. Martha McSally is not enough for gullible Republicans seeking nirvana

Arizona Republicans with conservative credentials have been finding their email in-boxes filled with praiseful paeans to a never-before-heard-of challenger to incumbent Sen. Martha McSally, the former two-term congresswoman and sole Republican representing our state in the U.S. Senate. There is even a website the novice candidate with zero credentials and no political experience has up and running demanding that we “Demand” him. It would be tempting to brush this arrogant amateur off like lint on a pinstriped suit sleeve, but there is the enticement/excitement factor that mimics a teen crush. The problem is the teens in this case are mostly senior citizen GOP activists who should be wiser than to fall for a swaggering fast-talker.

These folks are all desperately seeking perfection, an entity which doesn’t exist in politics. They are willing to go for the untried and unknown, hoping he will be the Moses to lead them out of what they view as the political wilderness. The biblical account in Exodus reminds us even Moses’ followers, frustrated when they thought he spent too much time on Mount Sinai receiving the Ten Commandments, ended up erecting and worshiping a golden calf, ultimately suffering the consequences for their faithlessness.

The senate makeup is crucial. Republicans — there are 51 — currently hold a slim lead over 47 Democrats (including 2 Independents who caucus with the Dems). This sliver-like margin is not one we can afford to risk. Senate votes are needed to confirm President Trump’s federal judicial nominees, including to the exceedingly important U.S. Supreme Court.

President Trump has enthusiastically endorsed Sen. Martha McSally, a fact lost on those who claim to support him but have fallen in lockstep with their golden calf.

With the magnitude of this race in mind, SRAZ is reposting our earlier post, “Daniel McCarthy’s challenge to Sen. McSally fulfills Kelly’s dream.”

The Democrat in this race is leftist, Second Amendment enemy, anti-Trumper Mark Kelly, husband of former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords. The couple count the Obama’s among their friends. But don‘t look for that dreaded “D” word on his website. Taking his cue from Kyrsten Sinema’s senate campaign, “Democrat” is nowhere to be found. Still the Dems are pinning their hopes on him to bring the long held Republican senate seat into the Democrat column. Kelly’s supporters — open border, socialist multi-billionaire George Soros among them, have filled Kelly’s campaign coffers to overflowing.

According to Federal Election Commission disclosures Kelly has significantly out raised every candidate for the U.S. Senate in the entire nation — even longtime senators and those in leadership positions.

Daniel McCarthy’s supporters are still mired in, and consumed by, their loathing of John McCain. He is gone. Even McCain’s loyal senate sidekick Lindsey Graham has modified his stance and has become supportive of Pres. Trump. We all need to move forward. The past is behind us.

Pledge your support to help Republican Sen. Martha McSally retain the crucial Arizona senate seat. It matters.


Pres. Trump wins major SCOTUS victory on asylum claims & Update

September 12, 2019

Supreme Court ruling clears the way for new asylum restrictions

Finally some sanity from the U.S. Supreme Court on the issue of the illegal invasion of the United States. In a Wednesday ruling, the court granted a request by President Trump to enforce a recent rule intended to restrain asylum applications at the U.S.-Mexico border. This has been a key component of the administration’s policies to staunch the flood of hundreds of thousands of Central Americans claiming to seek asylum.

The justices authorized the government to enforce the rule that would bar illegal aliens from applying for asylum if they pass through another country — routinely Mexico — without seeking asylum there before arriving in the United States. The leftist 9th Circus Court of Appeals had blocked the government from implementing the new rule in Arizona and California, though now the government can enforce it nationwide while it appeals a decision by California U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar, to the Ninth Circuit, or if necessary, back to the Supreme Court. Tigar is a Berkeley educated Obama appointee.

 The only dissents came from Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“Asylum” is the key word. Illegal immigration advocates including ACLU legal teams, coaching the hordes of humanity illegally entering our country have instructed them to use the golden ticket word.

But asylum claims lose their validity when the so-called asylum seekers pass through Mexico without making their claim — instead traveling hundreds of miles further north to the United States, completely ignoring Mexico, which abuts the Central American counties they are leaving.

There is no language barrier in Mexico. But there is a symbiotic relationship. Mexico, which facilitates their incursion to the U.S. doesn’t want them. The Guatemalans, Hondurans and El Salvadorans, eager to access American taxpayer-funded benefits, have no desire to remain in Mexico, dispelling their asylum claims.

Mexico has wasted no time in loudly protesting the asylum decision of the U.S. Supreme Court, calling it “hard-line and astonishing.”

“This is the ruling by the court, it’s a U.S. issue, and obviously we don’t agree with it, we have a different policy,” Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard told a news conference.

That’s for sure. 

Mexican government hypocrisy is stunning. Mexico has long had barriers at its own southern border abutting Central America. Its current policy is to act as a collaborating facilitator allowing the hordes of illegals it doesn’t want, to move freely through its land mass to the U.S. border.

Mexico has strenuously resisted signing a formal “safe third country” agreement that would commit it to hearing the asylum cases of Central Americans and other illegals.

Getting an immense dose of the invasion the Mexican government has previously aided, Mexico‘s own citizens are reacting negatively to the influx. “We have seen outbreaks of acts of xenophobia in Mexico that did not exist before, mainly in the north of the country,” said Israel Ibarra, described as an immigration expert with the Continente Movil consultancy in Tijuana.

How interesting that Mexicans are now being accused of being “xenophobic” regarding other Hispanics.

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin wrote this enlightening column, “Police state: How Mexico treats illegal aliens,” containing a bullet-pointed list citing the regulations and restrictions Mexico imposes on foreigners — when Arizona was dealing with the repercussions following the passage of SB1070.


September 11, 2001: US Schools ignore facts

September 11, 2019

Eighteen years ago today, 2,973 people were murdered by 19 Muslim fundamentalist Al-Qaeda terrorists who commandeered commercial airliners and flew two of them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City and another into the Pentagon — transforming passenger jets loaded with fuel for transcontinental flights from the east to west coasts, into guided missiles. The death toll includes 40 passengers and crew members aboard the fourth hijacked plane, United 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as courageous passengers rushed the cockpit in an attempt to wrest control from the terrorists.

Along with our American citizens, people from 90 other countries were killed in the attacks perpetrated against non-combatants by Islamo-fascist extremists. Many of the murderers, who boarded the flights armed with box cutters and knives, were in the U.S. on expired student visas and had taken commercial flying lessons, some in Arizona flight schools.

On the anniversary of this previously unimaginable atrocity perpetrated against America on our own soil, we can no longer repeat the words, “We will never forget.”

Why?

American schools have deemed the facts concerning the raw evil too politically incorrect, devoting scant time to teaching the truth. American youth can’t forget, because they have little to no knowledge regarding the carnage. As far back as 2011, just ten years after the worst mass murder and destruction on our nation, Education Week, a publication for the teaching establishment, headlined its top story,Majority of States’ Standards Don’t Mention 9/11.”

Salon, the radically left-wing site takes this view: “We’ve learned, for instance, about the attack’s mechanics — we know which particular terrorists orchestrated it and how many lives those mass murderers tragically destroyed. We also know about 9/11’s long-term legacy — we have healthcare data showing that it created a kind of mass post-traumatic stress disorder, and we have evidence that it generated a significant rise in anti-Muslim bigotry. And, of course, we’ve learned that our government can turn catastrophes like 9/11 into political weapons that successfully coerce America into supporting wars and relinquishing civil liberties.”

Imagine that perspective prevailing after the December 7, 1941 unprovoked Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, which decimated the US Pacific Fleet.

More than 2,400 Americans were killed and nearly 1,180 injured when stealth Japanese fighters bombed and sank 12 naval vessels and heavily damaged nine others.

The vicious attack is rightfully still commemorated. Pres. Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, referred to the sneak attack as, “A date which will live in infamy,” as he addressed congress regarding the declaration of war.

Philosopher George Santayana is renown for saying, “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat It.” He also said, “A child educated only at school is an uneducated child.” His words are more true than ever in the current political climate where the teaching establishment is run by leftist unions, whose members admittedly engage in propagandizing rather than teaching.


Dems endorse boycotting businesses linked to Trump donors

September 10, 2019

We’re all aware of the Dem endorsed boorish efforts to harass and intimidate members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet, family and GOP members of congress who support the president. Surrounding their tables in restaurants and showing up on their front lawns chanting threats and obscenities apparently isn’t enough to satisfy the leftist lunatics.

Now there’s a new scheme underway among radical Democrats. They are encouraging the boycotts of a vast array of companies whose owners, founders, chairmen, subsidiaries and affiliates — including their family members — contributed to President Trump’s reelection campaign or held fundraisers on his behalf.  

At the federal level, the organizations themselves did not donate, as they are prohibited by law from doing so. The “offenders” exercising their First Amendment rights of expression are individual, law-abiding, American citizens.

Seeing Red AZ is not linking to the list, although we are encouraged that American business leaders support the president who has made the economy brighter than it’s been for years. He has added over 4 million jobs, reduced taxes and reined in government regulations that hamper business. Minority unemployment is at record lows.

This is a one-way street traveled by vulgar extremists who increasingly populate the Democrat party. Republican leaders never called for boycotts of Hollywood elite George Clooney, Gwyneth Paltrow, Spike Lee and others who held $35,000 admission price fundraisers for Barack Obama in their luxury homes. If you’re a movie goer, you also contributed, as you can see on this list. Never lose sight of the fact that the entertainment industry is a left-wing propaganda machine and whether overtly or subtly, you are its target.
