Biden faces harsh polling reality from leftist source

February 28, 2022

Our ship of state is rudderless

This newly released ABC/Washington Post poll substantiates Biden’s upside-down polling numbers while admitting economic concerns are hurting his approval ratings — rightly placing democrats in peril ahead of the midterm elections.

His unprecedented low ranking comes as he is facing myriad concerns, including what the accompanying report described as, “Underwater ratings for his handling of Ukraine, a split on the pandemic and weak scores on personal attributes including leadership, handling a crisis and mental sharpness. But 40-year-high inflation leads his headaches; by 35-17 percent  Americans are apt to say they’ve gotten worse off rather than better off under his presidency.”

Vladimir Putin’s bloody, full-scale military invasion of Ukraine stands as another humiliating defeat for Joe Biden. He staked this country’s reputation, billions of dollars and the full force of the U.S. government on blocking what has turned into a debacle. When Putin recently began his saber rattling, U.S. Commander-in-Chief Biden blankly referred to the aggression a “minor incursion.”

In August 2021, just months into his presidency, Biden oversaw a chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan. He left American citizens and Afghan allies behind, and armed the Taliban terrorists with advanced weapon technology as he executed his unannounced retreat. Thirteen US service members were killed by an ISIS-K suicide bomber outside the Kabul airport while helping to oversee the evacuation

If we can survive the next three years of Biden’s ineptness we can hope for a sound election without legitimate manipulation concerns and uncertainties. That will entail electing another solid Republican, as we previously did with President Donald J. Trump. Under his leadership, the economy soared, unemployment was at an all-time low, law enforcement was respected and the border wall was under construction.  

America’s future is our hands — but only if we get active, register new GOP voters, and vote for known conservative Republicans, rather than posers.


American patriot Tom Tancredo is seriously ill

February 27, 2022

Michelle Malkin affectionately offers her friend, mentor, conservative 5-term U.S Congressman and 2008 presidential candidate Tom Tancredo, prayers and thanks. She speaks for many Americans in this tribute, published on CNS News. Those of us who were apathetic political novices, became resolute conservatives under his tutelage. Read her poignant message under the link. Malkin is a best-selling author, syndicated columnist and nationally acclaimed blogger.

The mission Tancredo undertook was a natural for the former high school history teacher and we were receptive to his instructive message. Tancredo, the grandson of four Italian legal immigrants, is a true patriot. He also was a vocal opponent of illegal aliens flooding across our border, firmly believing in the rule of law and respecting the national sovereignty of the United States.

Illegal immigration was the topic on which Tancredo initially made an impact, waking Americans to the costly assault on our country.

On February 13, 2007, the American Conservative Union issued ratings for potential presidential candidates for the 2008 election. Tancredo took first place with a lifetime ranking of 99 out of 100.

Paul Bedard writing for the Washington Examiner reports that “during the past year a record 14.45 million illegals in the US cost citizen taxpayers $133.7 billion.” His report is complete with shocking charts and lists of illegal population estimates by state.

Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) was correct in his predictions. The only U.S. president to shine a bright light on the assault on America was Donald Trump, who began building the previously promised, but never delivered, wall. Joe Biden’s handlers began dismantling it immediately after barely cognizant Joe was sworn in.

Biden bows at radical “Demand Justice” SCOTUS diversity altar

February 26, 2022

DJ’s website is clear about its objectives: “We fight every day on issues that matter to the future of the federal courts – because every progressive issue depends on it.”

It’s likely you’ve never heard of Demand Justice (DJ). Most Americans haven’t. The leftist group, headed by Brian Fallon, is focused on the U.S. Supreme Court, which doesn’t meet its extreme standards. Topping the list is “transforming the court and expanding the number of high court justices to ensure a preponderance of diversified democrats.”  Be aware this does not include diversity of thought. In addition to guaranteeing those with a leftist agenda are elevated to the U.S. Supreme Court and other federal courts, Demand Justice considers as paramount qualifications immutable characteristics over which none of us have any control, such as our race and gender.

Mounting pressure from the left forced Justice Stephen Breyer, nominated by Bill Clinton, to announce his retirement providing Biden’s handlers the opportunity to nominate a former public defender, who just happens to fill the necessary race and gender requirements.

While Americans naively think judicial selection is aboveboard and trustworthy, the singled-focused group has been spending $millions on a lobbying campaign on behalf of Ketanji Brown Jackson, Joe Biden’s ultimate nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court. Demand Justice arrogantly sent him this progressive short list* from which to make his final selection.

In this Feb. 24, 2022 press release, Demand Justice announced it will begin a seven-figure ad campaign to support her confirmation, touting her qualifications as the first black woman and the first former public defender nominated to the court. This is an ad buy promoting Ketanji Brown Jackson.

If you’re wondering why Republican former House Speaker Paul Ryan endorsed democrat Jackson for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia when she was nominated by Barack Obama — urging his fellow GOP colleagues to confirm her — it’s because they’re related by marriage. Ketanji Brown Jackson’s husband is Patrick G. Jackson, the twin brother of Ryan’s brother-in-law William Jackson. William Jackson’s wife, Dana, is the sister of Ryan’s wife, Janna.

Demand Justice headlined, “Our Courts Are In Crisis,” with this opening blurb that explains its deceptive scheme: “With a 6-3 Republican supermajority, the Supreme Court is too biased in favor of special interests and Republican politicians. Our democracy is at risk from decisions that suppress the right to vote.

Voter suppression is the hoax perpetrated by democrats to give heft to their meritless claims.

*Seeing Red AZ does not use the word “progressive” as a political description. It is a form of deception preferred by the left, since it denotes forward thinking. Leftist thought is more accurately described as “regressive.”

Lies get a workout as AZ Republic defames US Rep. Gosar

February 25, 2022

The radically leftwing Arizona Republic, a purveyor of conservative loathing and disinformation, is relentless in its ongoing effort to defame AZ’s CD-4 conservative Congressman Paul Gosar. (Read his bio and ratings under the link.)

So much so, in fact, that this morning’s edition goes to the extreme length of headlining a deceit-filled article, “Jewish community alarmed as Glassman, Gosar host fundraiser.”

To carry out this deception, the newspaper which previously gave editorial writer Elvia Diaz a pass on comparing illegals crossing our border to Jews fleeing Hitler, goes to great lengths to smear Gosar as an antisemite. This trickery is based on what they say is a comment he reportedly made in a 2017 interview in which the interviewer asked about George Soros, the far-left, billionaire who funds extreme causes and candidates.  Gosar is quoted as saying, “I think he’s from Hungary. I think he was Jewish. And I think he turned in his own people to the Nazi’s.”

This was enough for the failing newspaper to throw the six-term congressman, with a strong pro-Israel record under the political bus, though Soros identified himself as collaborating with the Nazi’s in this CBS 60 Minutes interview, defending his hideous action with a smirk on his face, comparing it to the way the market works and calling himself a boy. At 14 Soros was already lacking morality.

While we are disappointed in Gosar partnering at a fundraiser with fake Republican and political opportunist Rodney Glassman, there may well be more to this than meets the eye.

AZ Republic announces it’s time to buy a collector’s edition

February 24, 2022

Schizophrenic leftist newspaper on Jan. 19, heralded Biden calling Russia’s troop escalation against Ukraine, “a small incursion.” Today, it banner headlines, “Russia attacks Ukraine”

It’s no secret the Trump-despising, Hillary-endorsing, Biden-supporting, Arizona Republic has been hanging on by its fingernails. SRAZ has written numerous posts on the failing newspaper, but this one, AZ Republic reneges on subscribers third time since Sept.” dated December 30, 2021 sums up the dire condition that has put it on life support.

Having run out of excuses for non-deliveries of paid-for editions, the hemorrhaging subscriptions newspaper has come up with another act of desperation: blaming the lack of people willing to deliver the skewed news. It will soon join this stunning-but-incomplete list of defunct newspapers.

This is the most recent notice bearing the bold type, all caps title:                    


The Arizona Republic is committed to providing on time and regular delivery to our valued home delivery subscribers. Regrettably, the effects of the current job market are severely impacting operations.

We have been working harder than ever to work through these challenges and we ask for your patience during this time.

If you know someone who could use extra income, please refer them to us. Our delivery drivers are independent contractors who deliver across the Valley and state. We have routes available (naming several Arizona locations). We are offering a credit on subscriptions if a referral is contracted on a route. (Contact information is given.)

The fact is, this is a ruse. A purveyor of conservative loathing and disinformation, the newspaper’s only hope for survival is to discontinue the much more expensive to produce and distribute hard copy editions and go all digital. A headline pleads: “5 digital benefits of a subscription,” with the desperate hate-mongers in charge deceptively pledging, “you can play a vital role in supporting local journalism that you and your community can trust.”

This is the same newspaper that encourages auto-pay rather than monthly bills, which they are now imposing a $5 monthly fee for mailing. Do your credit cards, utility companies or others who bill you impose a separate charge for the bill? Desperation leads to lunacy. Leftists are demonstrably unstable. They are also treacherous.

Tired of having your intelligence insulted? If you still subscribe, cancel. Call 1-800-332-6733. Not only is it liberating, you’ll save a bundle of money that can be put to better use.

Biden’s open border: News the pro-illegal AZ Republic hides

February 23, 2022

U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported 153,941 “illegal encounters” in the month of January

The New York Post, a newspaper nearly 3,000 miles away from Arizona, has consistently provided the facts on the indefensible, worsening crisis on America’s southern border.

Reuters recently reported over 10,000 individuals — mostly Haitians, but also Cubans, Nicaraguans and Venezuelans — had set up a camp underneath the Del Rio International Bridge in Ciudad Acuna, Mexico, across the border from Del Rio, Texas.

In a new report, Fox News, citing court documents, revealed illegal alien encounters on the southern border increased in January, almost double the numbers from 2021.

Biden’s pro-amnesty and weak border security policies have created a surge in previously deported criminals and COVID-positive illegals unlawfully entering the United States. Yet these people are being resettled — flown and bused to locations throughout the United States — while American citizens are under unrelenting pressure to get vaccinated, or risk losing their jobs. Our children must be masked despite scientific evidence of the negative effects, as reported by Vinay Prasad, MD. in his The Cult of Masked Schoolchildren.”

This graph provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows the spiraling numbers of “border encounters,” a euphemism for illegal alien invaders, yet VP Kamala Harris, Biden’s appointed border czarina has done nothing to stem the tide. No longer limited to Mexicans and Central Americans, illegal invaders are now crossing our border from as far away as Africa, according to Pew Research Center. This Biden double-talk known as the U.S. Citizenship Act” on opening our border was his first-day-in-office priority.

Arizona’s Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb, founder of “Protect America Now,” is sounding the alarm on this crisis, noting in the linked video that apprehensions at the border have hit a 20-year high. The number of illegals getting through have no respect for American laws or sovereignty.

Law Enforcement Today headlined its exposé, “Report: Biden using funds for health testing to disperse illegal immigrants across United States.

Thanks to Biden and his fellow democrats, American taxpayers are funding the loss of our country.

Editor’s note:  There’s a lot to read here, but knowledge is power. Armies can’t fight on empty stomachs and voters need to digest information.

Putin, aware of Biden’s weakness, prepped to invade Ukraine

February 22, 2022

Few Americans can claim to be experts on Russia’s provocative and increasingly hostile actions against Ukraine. We can best rely on the wisdom of Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart who famously defined obscenity in a pornography case decided by the court in 1964,  “I know it when I see it.”

The New York Post headlines, “Russia recognizes Ukraine-held areas as rebel regions in latest threat.” The editorial board addresses the Russian aggression using this non-equivocal headline: The Post says: Putin must be stopped NOW.

This reality is what disconnected Joe Biden referred to as a “small incursion,” and out-of-her-league VP Kamala Harris bizarrely called “a salad.”

The Dow dropped more than 300 points this morning as Russian forces moved inside Ukrainian territory, raising fears of all-out war to high intensity levels.

Two-term Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz, appearing on Fox News Sunday, called out Joe Biden for his handling of Russia and Ukraine, and accused the commander-in-chief of being the “best thing that ever happened” to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Sen. Cruz couldn’t have described the catastrophe better.

Matt Vespa, writing for Townhall, titles his commentary, “The Invasion Has Begun: Putin Orders Troops Into Eastern Ukraine

Vladimir Putin suppressed his aggression when Donald Trump was in the White House. There is no need to now.

Bang, bang…Kari Lake’s “lifetime NRA status” goes up in smoke

February 21, 2022

Fake Lake shoots political blanks

Membership in the National Rifle Association is a badge of honor for millions of patriotic Americans who respect the Second Amendment to our U.S. Constitution. Members are easily identifiable by the decal on their car window.  Not only is it a mark of pride in an over 150-year-old organization, memberships are a rite of passage within countless American families.

It’s no wonder Kari Lake, a former teleprompter news reader-turned governor candidate, lacking any relevant experience in state government, wants to add heft to her non-existent credentials by claiming lifetime membership in the NRA. She is unable to produce any evidence of membership prior to 2021.

What Kari Lake does have experience in is political party hopping. She has been a Republican, switching to a democrat, a registered Independent and now claims she is not only a Republican, but a staunch conservative. Lake used her first initial and married last named Halperin, when sending generous donations to the presidential campaigns of Barack Obama and John Kerry — a fact she now discards as easily as she did a day-old script.

No doubt Lake would also like Republican voters to forget she was dedicated to assisting almost out-the-door Obama get his last minute leftist democrat nominee Merrick Garland on the U.S. Supreme Court as a replacement for conservative Justice Antonin Scalia. The widely respected conservative Scalia died unexpectedly, in his bed, while on a hunting trip. Fortunately President Donald Trump filled the SCOTUS vacancy with Neil Gorsuch.

Joe Biden’s handlers breathed new life into radical Merrick Garland by nominating him as Biden’s U.S. Attorney General, whose respect for life is so abysmal that he sued the state of Texas over its recently enacted abortion law.

This post, “Merrick Garland supporter Kari Lake goes mute as he mobilizes FBI against parents,” includes five additional links revealing Kari Lake has never exhibited any conservative leanings until her overactive ego preposterously convinced her she‘s equipped to handle the myriad duties of Arizona’s governor.

Here is fake Lake, then a democrat, promoting Merrick Garland for the Supreme Court, as she refers to him as, “someone you can’t have any qualms with…who has an impeccable resume.”

Putin’s aggression fueled by Biden’s weakness

February 20, 2022

If not so serious, Joe Biden’s ineptitude would be the basis of a politically-based comedy routine. Democrats remain bonded to the ailing man in the White House, who is clearly in the throes of dementia. His incompetent VP Kamala Harris, appointed as the U.S. “border czar,” laughs and has gotten testy when asked about her lack of attention to the America’s southern border, not finding time to visit as she oversaw the redecoration of the vice presidential mansion. It is anything but laughable. Center for Immigration Studies focuses on the monumental expansion of the U.S. drug crisis due to lax enforcement in Yuma, Arizona.

Now bungling Biden has put incompetent Harris in charge of the looming catastrophe as Russia’s Vladimir Putin is continuing a provocative military buildup by moving 100,000 troops along the border with Ukraine. Putin also aggressively amassed ships in the Azov Sea.

Biden has recently dismissed the aggressive actions as a “minor incursion.” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky quickly responded, “We want to remind the great powers that there are no minor incursions.”

Canadian truckers vs. tyrannical Trudeau

February 19, 2022

A lesson in leftist overreach

Since its January 22 inception, Americans have watched news reports of hundreds of Canadian truckers known as the “Freedom Convoy,” protesting government imposed COVID-19 vaccine and mask mandates. The truckers have blocked a major roadway in Canada’s capital city of Ottawa to bring attention to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s increasingly oppressive tactics to force compliance. 

When police confiscated their reserve gasoline and logs that citizens brought to them to build roadside fires to warm themselves in the freezing weather, it wasn’t nearly enough. After recent arrests of over a hundred truck drivers, Justin Trudeau, with the acquiescence of Canadian banks, has begun seizing the truckers’ personal bank accounts, though they have been convicted of no crime, and despite the fact that the majority of the truckers have been vaccinated. What we are witnessing is an outrageous governmental power grab and a leftwing amnesia that renders French speaker Justin Trudeau unable to recall the meaning of liberté.

This enlightening New York Post commentary, “Justin Trudeau’s Canadian injustice is just a naked grab for power,” by James Bovard, should stand as a warning to Americans. 

Talk is cheap, as this April 30, 2007 quote from slippery Justin Trudeau illustrates:

“For me, to represent people who represent the future of Canada and the great challenges we will face over the coming decades — this is where I wanted to start. … I’m a teacher; I’m a convenor; I’m a gatherer; I’m someone who reaches out to people and is deeply interested in what they have to say. And people see that I’m not faking it. I’m actually genuinely committed to this dialogue that we’re opening up, and this understanding that needs to happen in order to be an effective MP.”
