Merrill/Morrison liberal pollsters’ wishful thinking

April 30, 2012

Beware as AZ Republic’s pollsters try their hand at hoodwinking

Two polls from the left-leaning Merrill/Morrison (M/M) Institute and heralded by the daily newspaper, reveal interesting “facts.”  The first release found that Arizonans — who have elected only one Democrat for President since 1948 — are evenly divided in their support for Barack Obama (40%) and Mitt Romney (42%).  No Opinion Wizards weighed in at 18%. Bruce Merrill calls it a “toss-up.”

Ditto, to whom the respondents would rather have in control of Congress. Republicans came in at 41%, Democrats 40% and once against the No Opinion geniuses registered a 19% chunk.

Then the pollsters report that “nearly three-quarters of Arizona registered voters” are in favor of the nightmarish DREAM Act, a backdoor amnesty rewarding lawbreakers.

On this contentious issue the agenda-driven Merrill/Morrison claim strongly support stands at 45%, support 28%, oppose 15%, strongly oppose 7%. The No Opinion Wizards became more certain with only 5% unclear of their views.

For a clue to Merrill/Morrison’s bent, note that SB 1070 is described as “controversial,” the liberal newspaper’s word of choice. Check out the liberal use the term “undocumented immigrants” to describe foreign nationals who are here illegally. We prefer to call them illegal aliens, since actual immigrants come to this country via a legal and very generous process.

David Daugherty, director of research at Morrison Institute had the temerity to say, “These findings largely contradict the common impression that Arizonans are anti-Mexican immigrant.” That “common impression” is promoted daily by Linda Valdez and Daniel Gonzales.

Wrong, Mr. Daugherty.  Arizonans just believe illegal lawbreakers should stay home and should not be rewarded. Mexicans who apply for citizenship are welcomed along with those from other nations who respect our laws and national sovereignty.

And who is the Executive Director of this M/M crew? Why none other than Sue Clark-Johnson, who retired as President of the Gannett Newspaper Division. Gannett is the parent company of Arizona’s editorial source masquerading as a disseminator of news. And whadd’ya know?  She also served as Chairman and CEO of Phoenix Newspapers, Inc. — better known to our readers as the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic).  The M/M Board of Advisors is replete with liberals, lobbyists, RINOs, high-fliers heading “institutes,” Hispanic Chamber of Commerce representatives and Republic employees, past and present. John Zidich, the newspaper’s President and Publisher shows up on the list.

The Morrison Institute actually has the chutzpah to describe itself as “using nonpartisan research and public outreach to help improve the state’s quality of life.”

Believe that and we’ve got a bridge you might be interesting in buying.

Obama’s frightful ties to the Muslim Brotherhood

April 29, 2012

Porous border emphasizes vulnerability

The Blaze exposes how radical Islamists, including the Muslim Brotherhood, are infiltrating American government at its highest levels. Groups including Hamas, Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood, are gaining a foothold in America.

Read this overview of each of the radical Islamists who have found their place — in some manner, shape or form — at the Obama administration’s table.

The Foundry reports the Obama administration has essentially declared the war on terror over. Many will recall that within weeks of his election Obama began courting the Muslim community and curtailing language in the process, as the “war on terror’ morphed into a “twilight struggle.”

Conservative U.S. Rep. Allen West (R-FL) has been outspoken on the subject of the Muslim Brotherhood and other extremist groups influencing U.S. strategy.

We have previously reported that Hezbollah has found a niche in Mexican border towns.  San Diego’s 10News ran this shocking coverage and accompanying video nearly a year ago.

Even the liberal Los Angeles Times surprised with this editorial taking the Obama White House to task for what the newspaper calls “An implausible plan to fight terrorism through community outreach.”

Over a decade ago, WND reported in an article titled Arab terrorists crossing border, that there has been a “tremendous increase in OTM’s (border lingo for Other Than Mexicans). Illegals from the former Soviet Union, Asia, and the Middle East are joining the flood of Mexicans, Central and South Americans — all slipping in through our incredibly accessible and porous Southern border. Apprehensions have included illegals from the Sudan, Iran, and even Iraq.”

Knowledge is power. Read these articles. Click on these links. Make the time. You can’t afford not to. Your family’s future and that of our nation depends on it.

SB1070: Daily hopes for the worst, awaits the best

April 29, 2012

U.S. Supreme Court and AZ’s law

The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) rarely disappoints. The reliably open-borders, amnesty-pushing publication has become little more than a caricature of a news delivery instrument. Agenda driven, the leftwing source spews opinion from articles, rather than confining them to the editorial pages.  In its death throes, the erstwhile newspaper gasps  expected drivel while confessing its fears about what it refers to as “strong indications” that the high court  will uphold key portions of Arizona’s law.

Although the newspaper is unable to write about SB 1070 without placing the word “controversial” before the bill number, today’s front page has a single and telling sentence encased in a box, referring  to a two pager buried further in its increasingly irrelevant and ever-smaller daily endeavor. The header is SB1070 may sweep across U.S. Below are the begrudgingly descriptive words: With the Supreme Court giving strong indications that it will uphold key portions of Arizona’s immigration law, legislators and activists are gearing up to push for similar measures in other states throughout the country.

Seems our law is not so controversial after all — as Seeing Red AZ has said all along since other states have emulated it, and it clearly mirrors federal statues. There’s nothing controversial about expecting those entering our country to do so lawfully and respectfully. That’s why the law we’ve come to know simply by its bill number is actually titled: “Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act.”

Shirtless, classless, mostly jobless

April 28, 2012

Not another one!

Detroit Third Circuit Judge Wade McCree, a married man who specializes in sexual misconduct cases, admitted he sexted a shirtless photo of himself to his married bailiff’s cellphone, where her husband found it.

“Hot dog, yep that’s me,” the arrogant McCree bragged to Charlie LeDuff, a former New York Times Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who now reports for MyFoxDetroit (video included). “I’ve got no shame in my game. I ain’t talked to nobody else’s wife … There’s nothing nude about it. I’m in no more clothes than I’ll be at the Y this afternoon when I swim my mile.”

Last June, Seeing Red AZ ran a post titled “Shirtless Congressmen” which is definitely worth taking a look at.

Just another day in an AZ school

April 28, 2012

KTVK Channel 3 has the report and steamy video captured by a 16-year-old student at The Scholars’ Academy in Quartzsite, Arizona.  You’ll notice the links to the “Principal’s Corner” and “Faculty and Staff” have both been pulled down.

Although the principal was allowed to resign, his secretary — with the unlikely name of Billie Madewell — was fired for their extracurricular activities during school hours.

Principal Steve McClenning’s pledge to parents (previously posted), was “I assure you that I will do my best to make sure your child will have the best educational experience possible.”

No one could accuse him of lying.


The only positive in this pathetic scenario is that the two are both adults. Seeing Red AZ has long exposed the sexually predatory teachers in Arizona schools who prey on students. Check out the links to some of the NEA marchers in this “endless parade” here.

AZ Redistricting? The fat lady hasn’t sung yet

April 28, 2012

Dual lawsuits were filed Friday challenging the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission and seeking to prompt the redrawing of the commission’s legislative and congressional districts.

The lawsuit challenging the legislative maps, filed in Superior Court by attorney Mike Liburdi of Snell & Wilmer, contends the decennial maps give unfair advantage to Democrats. Thirty-nine percent of Republican state legislators were negatively impacted by the legislative lines drawn by the commission, headed by controversial chairman Colleen Coyle Mathis.

Attorney Lisa Hauser with the law firm of Gammage & Burnham has filed the federal court challenge to the congressional plan.

Gov. Jan Brewer and other Republicans have criticized the commission’s maps and the process used to draw them.

Last Fall, Mathis was ousted from her position for “gross misconduct,” only to be reinstated by the state Supreme Court.

Mathis’ husband, Christopher, a Democrat lawyer, served as treasurer for a Democrat legislative candidate in 2010 and the duo donated to other Democrat candidates. As chair, Mathis’ tie-breaking vote with the commission’s Democrat members resulted in the hiring of mapping consultant Strategic Telemetry – a company with strong ties to high-profile Democrats. Registering as an Independent served as a cloak to conceal her actual bent. Ken Strasma, the national target director of Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign is president of Washington D.C. based Strategic Telemetry.

One thing is certain. There is nothing “Independent” about Arizona’s purported Independent Redistricting Commission.  It has been mired in controversy since its inception.

Thoughtful resolutions of these lawsuits should bring welcome relief to the citizens of Arizona who deserve better than they have gotten.
