    robert graham seems to all in for some slick teddy cruz, no surprise there he loves the donor owned and operated politicians:
    Phones were jingling late last night over two memos that were e-mailed from the AZGOP Headquarters after the dinner hour. AZGOP Headquarters e-mailed out a message about 7:45 pm, Wed., March 16, from the “Keep the Promise PAC” that reads:

    Join us to Welcome Ted Cruz to Arizona!
    March 18
    with Carly Fiorina, Glen Beck, Rick Perry
    6 pm
    Arizona Christian University – Student Activity Center
    2625 E. Cactus Rd., Phoenix, AZ 85032

    Recipients Are Wanting To Know if the AZGOP has suddenly endorsed a GOP Presidential candidate without the knowledge of the state committeemen/ precinct committeemen? Why is the AZGOP e-mailing out PAC invitations? Wasn’t there a ruckus a year or so ago over the misuse of the state GOP e-mail list? Party delegate elections haven’t even been held in many legislative districts yet for selecting a Presidential nominee. Others remember the way AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham turned his back on Presidential candidate Donald Trump when he came to Phoenix a few months ago. Will the AZGOP send out an invitation to Trumps event when he’s in Phoenix Saturday? Has the Establishment suddenly switched horses and started throwing its weight behind Cruz in their efforts to keep Trump off the Presidential ticket? As you recall, the Establishment tried to cram Presidential candidate Jed Bush down our throats. The RNC dropped shot itself in the foot when they brought failed Presidential candidate Mitt Romney back into the limelight long enough for Romney and Karl Rove to take pot shots at Trump. Then they pushed Presidential hopeful Marco Rubio until he got sent to the woodshed by his own home state of Florida. Do you recall the names Sen John McCain laid on the conservative Cruz not so long ago? “What the Hell is going on now?” one angry voice bellowed. It appears this will be one more thing Graham’s Resignation Resolution proponents will add to their list of reasons to remove Graham. – ft

    When Ted Cruz has the opportunity to stand in unity against the leftist mob, instead he chose to align with and defend the Bernie Sanders supporters, MoveOn.Org and the Chicago thugs. Does anyone really believe Senator Ted Cruz would stand up to the mob to defend your assembly and free speech rights?

    • azgary says:

      THIS is what slick teddy cruz sided with over Trump and Trump supporters trying to exercise their peaceful right to assemble and free speech.

    Lindsey Graham Endorses Ted Cruz, Begins Fundraising Effort – The UniParty Unifies…

  4. azgary says:

    Anti-Trump movement really ‘professional agitators’

  5. Realist says:

    I’m a Cruz supporter who is keenly aware of the reality of money as a necessary driving force in political campaigns. Having said that, I view Lindsey Graham’s assistance as a detriment. He represents the worst of the establishment.

    Trump is coarse, brash and crude, but as a billionaire, he can buy his election. This has, without a doubt, devolved into the worst presidential campaign I’ve ever witnessed.

    Watching the news clips of Ronald Reagan this past week during the memorial for Nancy Reagan, brought his elegance and optimism to the forefront again. Reagan was derided by the left as an “actor.” Donald Trump is a carnival barker.

    • azgary says:


      funny how Trump has spent much less than all the others and is winning big.

      it appears the sour grapes you have with the low spending Trump vs big money donor owned slick teddy cruz and all of the billionaires supporting him is that money ISNT buying this election.

      Ted Cruz’s super PACs have the highest percentage of donors giving $1 million or more at 94.5 percent,

    • azgary says:

      $63 million has been spent on anti-Trump ads, that’s 3 times what Trump has spent on his own campaign.

      whos trying to buy the election?

    • Saguaro Sam says:

      If Trump can buy the election, as you put it, why hasn’t the establishment rolled over with their collective hands out, taking the dough? Most of them are on the take, anyway.

      Heidi, Mrs. Ted, Cruz is a seasoned and hardened big money chick with mental problems. I am referencing the time that she was found wandering along a Texas freeway, talking loudly and waving her arms wildly. After 9-1-1 was called by numerous passersby, the patrol officer who responded documented that she said that she was just taking a walk. He noted in his report that he considered her to be a “threat to herself”.
      (or maybe her financial portfolio just took a nosedive that day, which caused her to go play in traffic).

  6. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Here’s Lindsey Graham’s pick for president.


  7. Saguaro Sam says:

    Ted Cruz’s wife is on a leave of absence from her high-powered position as a regional manager of “personal wealth management” at Goldman-Sachs. To believe that Ted Cruz is an outsider and is
    not for sale is to be living in a fantasy.

    Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders has vowed to come after Sheriff Joe.
    Take a look—-if for no other reason that to see the crazy in Bernie’s eyes in the accompanying photo.

    • Arizona Conservative Guy says:

      Great! ! You should all be happy that you had a hand in electing Hillary. Short sighted, vindictive thinking will be as good as marking your ballot for third Clinton and Obama terms.

      • azgary says:

        what will give the election to hillary is the gope/uniparty stealing the nomination from Trump.

        “Newt Gingrich on ‘Anti-Trump’ Republicans: Should Form ‘Lost Republicans for Hillary’”

        Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich mocked and criticized desperate Republicans demanding a brokered convention to stop GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, saying they will throw the election to Hillary Clinton.

        “I think it’s pretty simple. If you want to help elect Hillary Clinton, and you want to make sure that the unionized bureaucracies are totally in control, and you want to have a radical Supreme Court to finish eliminating our liberties, then play games like this. But that’s what they are: They’re games”



        Ted Cruz Needs 87% of Remaining Delegates to Win Nomination
        Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) would need 87% of remaining primary voters to win the nomination.
        It might be time for Ted Cruz to drop out and endorse Donald J. Trump

        after Az goes to Trump Tuesday it becomes impossible for goldman sachs senator amnesty ted to get even close.

        hes staying in it to do his donor/owners and the gope/unipartys bidding.

      • Hunter says:

        A vote for Donald Trump is a vote for a RINO who will wreck the country with his ignorance, selfishness, and carelessness. Of course, not as much as Hillary, but bad enough.

        He hires aliens – sometimes illegal aliens – to work on his projects when Americans are applying for those jobs.

        He wants to increase the number of H1B visas (after consulting with Silicon Valley executives – maybe they offered to contribute to his campaign to pay off the loans Donald made to his own campaign).

        My ode to The Donald:

        Duh. Is the nuclear triad a hip hop group?
        Only a Republican because it’s convenient (like John McCain).
        Narcissist. (No explanation necessary.)
        Abortion facilitator (donates to Planned Parenthood)
        Liar. Just look at Trump “University” as one basic example.
        Ducks debates with Cruz because he doesn’t want people to see his ignorance and liberal views.

        Plus, Trump’s policies on trade, if implemented, would raise prices for ALL consumers in this country, probably result in a loss of US jobs in export industries (especially if there are retaliatory tariffs), and only help relatively few employees and business owners in politically favored industries at tremendous cost to everyone else. In short, Trump would wreck the economy with his trade policies and make life worse for most Americans.

        Trump is one of the most politically connected insiders in the race. He has bought or tried to buy politicians by the dozens – just ask Hillary Clinton and Harry Reid among others. He buys these politicians to get things from the government. That is usually known as Crony Capitalism.

  8. Conservative Since Birth says:

    I just caught the tail end of Sean Hannity’s radio show interview with Kelli Ward. She’s strong and very energetic-sounding. She said McCain is the perfect example of what people are tired of – establishment insider.

    • East Valley Conservative says:

      I heard it , too. Actually I was surprised any of the Fox hosts would give her air time, since they all seem to have their noses firmly planted up McCain’s butt. The network even gave his dull daughter a slot on the “Outnumbered” morning show.

      Kelli Ward is exactly what we need to finally take out the liberal Juan McAmnesty. She correctly referred to him as a “D.C. Dinosaur.”

      Sean Hannity quoted a poll that showed McCain and liberal Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick a single percentage point apart. We need to take care of business in the GOP Primary and elect Kelli Ward.

      • Doc says:

        So, as you all may know, Mr. Hannity was “hosted” for his AZ shows by kfyi 550am. AND, as we’re all aware, that ENTIRE STATION’S Staff is mcTraitor tied. But I heard Mr. Hannity say on the air Very Positive remarks about Dr. Ward, & several disparaging remarks about…well…we know who.

        I’ll bet broomhead & Co.’s heads were spinning like Linda Blair’s in “The EXEORCIST”!

    Seeing Red: Maybe there should be a limit on how many characters can be submitted as comment per day for each person. That would prevent people with too much time on their hands from filling the comments section of this blog with a lot of repetitive items and nonsense. It would enhance the value of the blog for everyone except those who like to hear themselves talk (or read what they post in the case of a blog).

    • azgary says:

      so you like censorship and crushing freedom of speech huh.

      figures, how gope of you

      • Hunter says:

        Interesting that YOU should reply. Why do you think it would apply to you?

        By the way, editorial control of a blog is not censorship or crushing freedom of speech.

        Any troll on any blog can exercise freedom of speech by setting up his own blog. Anyone interested can read it.

        Piggybacking on the excellent reputation of Seeing Red Arizona to have people read extensive posts that are long enough be blog entries is more overstaying your welcome instead of freedom of speech.

        Perhaps Seeing Red will identify people who think they should be able to post unlimited amounts of stuff for other people to wade through. They can then be asked to be formal contributors to the blog who can make their own threads. Of course, they would have to meet Seeing Red’s high standards.

      • azgary says:

        to wade trhough LOL

        only twenty or so post on the whole thread, is scrolling past what you dont want to read too hard?

        you dont go to blog sites much huh, only echo chambers

    • LD 23 PC says:

      My thoughts exactly! Azgary should start his own blog, but he wouldn’t have the readership of Seeing Red AZ, and he knows it. Instead he has tried to take over this site. I resent having to sift through the repetition to read other comments that express points of view other than his, which we all have heard ad nauseum.

      • azgary says:


        nobody forces you to read my posts and scrolling is super easy, at least with my post people see a different point of view.

        and thats why you censorship lovers dont like seeing them.

  10. Claire Voyant says:

    You’re wrong again. The blog’s authors write posts. Your diatribes are comments.

  11. Doc says:

    May I comment here that SRAZ’s “non-editing”, or not limiting a poster’s comment count, is EXACTLY the correct way to handle this. azgary MAY in fact have “too much time on his hands”, as has been said before here. But “censoring” him isn’t the correct way to go, in my usual not very humble opinion. I’m a Ted Cruz supporter until Senator Cruz says that he’s done. Period.

    But if Senator Cruz isn’t nominated, (& the Republicans don’t do something MONUMENTALLY STOOPID) & Mr. Trump gets the nod, I won’t hold my nose AT ALL while voting for him in November.

    That said, if people here are bothered by azgary’s post length, or post “count”, just skip over them. The censoring talk here by some other posters, all of whom have my deepest Respect, (no seriously, you all do!) is making me feel a little sick to my stomach.

    No matter what happens, 2 things ABSOLUTELY MUST Happen:

    1) ?senator? john mccain, & congressrat ann kirkpatrick MUST NOT, under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WHAT SO EVER be re-elected to ANYTHING, including dog catcher. Period. I believe we can ALL Agree on that.

    2) The FELON, (& she most certainly is, after hearing the evidence) hillary rodham clinton MUST NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WHAT SO EVER, be elected to the Presidency of these United States of America. Period. End of story. And I believe we can ALL agree on that as well.

    So, if azgary is bothering you, PLEASE…just skip over his posts. Or read ’em. Whatever. But PLEASE PLEASE, don’t ask/request/demand SRAZ to censor that poster.

    …Thanks for letting me get that off of my chest. God Bless US ALL.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      Thank you, Doc. I felt the way you do and was considering not commenting here any longer. The bottom line is we all agree that we don’t want certain people to be reelected (McCain, Kirkpatrick – don’t want a Democrat elected to anything, including the consummate liar, Hillary Clinton).

      I’m very surprised at the intolerance here at this very respected site. Not by SRAZ, but by posters who believe that only they are right. Shades of Robert McGraham.

    • Hunter says:

      Doc, I agree with you on most everything.

      If you are sick to your stomach, prescribe yourself something to settle your stomach.

      Before you get too sick, please keep in mind that the first person who referred to AZ Gary posting too much was AZ Gary. I put in a general comment. I suppose that if the shoe fits, an appropriate person will wear it.

      Further, editing is not censoring. Governments censor; private communications services edit.

      Anyone, including AZ Gary, can, start his own blog for free somewhere and post whatever he wants. In fact, I think Seeing Red would do a great service to its readers if it provided a link to a blog AZ Gary starts so he can post his stuff there. We will have a link to visit it if we are interested. I think that would be a fantastic solution.

      • Doc says:

        …I stand corrected on censoring vs. editing. And your idea of a person starting their own blog is “point well taken”.

        …as to prescribing myself something, I believe I shall. A chilled shot of Maker’s on my back deck (with my dog) after #1 Son hits th’ hay.
