April 30, 2012

Incumbent Obama losing traction

Real Clear Politics shows the beginning of the Romney ascent in today’s Rasmussen, Gallup and the recent FOX news polls.

From Rasmussen: The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows Mitt Romney earning 47% of the vote while President Obama picks up support from 45%. Four percent (4%) would vote for a third party candidate, while three percent (3%) are undecided

Gallup shows: Romney 47%, Obama 46%.

Fox News registers a tie at  46% – 46%.

Get crackin’! America can’t afford to lose this election.


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.

Jesse Kelly: Rates great review in National Review

April 27, 2012

Read Kelly’s Second Act ….Jesse Kelly is poised for victory in a special election.

Seeing Red AZ covered the AZ CD 8 race here yesterday. If you missed it, the links are worth your time. Liberal Ron Barber is exposed as the lifelong government bureaucrat and disingenuous sham he is.

Today’s Wall Street Journal Washington Wire reports that the high stakes race is heating up fast in AZ’s southeast corner, including parts of Tucson — as the party apparatus on both sides of the aisle view this as the race to fund. 

Just hours ago the NRCCC announced a $150,000 TV ad buy for Jesse Kelly that it has now doubled.  The DNC trails with half that amount committed to Ron Barber. He’s a tough candidate to devote resources to.

Romney’s VP? Marco Rubio ain’t the guy

April 27, 2012

Conservative Florida Congressman Allen West, an Army Lieutenant Colonel (ret.) with a distinguished record doesn’t collude with liberals on re-christened amnesty

PJ Media is reporting that Florida’s Republican Sen. Marco Rubio and liberal Democrat Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez have been engaged in a “fruitful conversation” regarding introduction of an alternative to what we have long termed the “nightmarish” DREAM Act.

But the plotters were larger than just this odd twosome. The duo was also deeply involved in dialogue on the topic of back-door amnesty with Democrats Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey and Rep. Charles Gonzalez of Texas.

According to the report, under Rubio’s version, certain illegal minors “would receive legal status, but not a special pathway to citizenship.” Gutierrez has derided that alternative as the “Stolen Dream Act,” but said he’s now willing to give Rubio a chance to see how the proposal comes together.’

He asked me to give him a chance, and I’m going to wait,” Gutierrez said. “I asked him when did he think we could hear more, he said in a few weeks. Sounds great to me.”

No doubt it does.

Longtime readers of Seeing Red AZ will remember Luis Gutierrez as Jeff Flake’s comrade on exactly such issues. This blog has an entire category devoted to Jeff Flake’s preening arrogance, left-of-center positions, McCain-like flip-flops and liberal associates.

Prime among them is his close congressional ally Chicago’s “lonely far-left” Rep. Luis Gutierrez, who actually commends Flake for “helping him turn more red states blue“ in this article in Progress Illinois — hardly the trait Arizona Republicans are looking for in their next U.S. Senator.

After giving strenuous support to the La Raza-backed DREAM Act, slick trickster Jeff Flake found a way to be on both sides of the issue, which in its simplest form is a state-subsidized reward for lawbreaking.

Here the pro-amnesty Flake, now in campaign mode, changed his long-held, lenient-on-illegal-immigration position, vexing his cheerleaders at the pro-open-borders Arizona Republic. Flake’s politically expedient reversal on border policy exposes him as McCain‘s astute protégée, for which the stunned newspaper angrily slammed him as a mere “politician.”

As serious Vice Presidential considerations take form, Florida offers us a superb alternative to the much hyped Marco Rubio. U. S. Rep. Allen West is an actual conservative. Check out his bio. You’ll be impressed.

Wil Cardon explains Jeff Flake

April 26, 2012

Finally, we have a choice

This video — Membership has its Privileges — introduces the real Jeff Flake.  Watch it and send it on. It will be one of the most important things you do today,

 Finally…we have a choice

Seeing Red AZ has devoted an entire category heading to Jeff Flake. This post “Career politician Jeff Flake exposed,” filled with informative links, is a good place to start. Flake and Wil Cardon are running for the U.S. Senate seat soon to be vacant through the retirement of AZ Sen. Jon Kyl. This is a crucial election at a critical time in our nation’s history. Don’t be sold a bill of goods or trade one career politician for another.  Wil Cardon presents a conservative choice, not simply warmed over rhetoric.

Kyl has spent the last 25 years in Washington. Jeff Flake, who dismissed his own term limits pledge by simply chuckling and saying ”I lied,” has served 6 terms, often partnering with Chicago liberal Luis Gutierrez on amnesty bills.  It’s past time for a change.
