Suspect “leaders” mourn death of communist dictator Fidel Castro

November 27, 2016

President-elect Donald Trump speaks the truth

Cuba’s Communist dictator Fidel Castro has died at age 90.  In March of this year, Barack Obama used an executive order to normalize relations with the repressive regime after traveling to the struggling island nation 90 miles off Florida’s southern coast.

It’s worth noting that the reliably liberal Washington Post wrote this scathing assessment of Obama’s actions. The editorial stated that Obama’s acquiescence “eliminated U.S. leverage for political reforms.”

To commemorate Castro, Obama issued a statement expressing sympathy, saying in part, “At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people. Today, we offer condolences to Fidel Castro’s family, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people.’ Obama neglected to mention Castro’s decades-long, tyrannical suppression of human rights, imposition of forced labor and the brutal subjugation, disappearances and nearly 4,000 murder by firing squad of Cuban citizens Castro considered dissenters. Such truths don’t fit Obama’s paradigm.

Cuban Americans, who risked their lives fleeing the Communist regime, greeted the news of Castro’s death by dancing in the streets.

Arizona Republicrat Sen. Jeff Flake, a longtime supporter of opening diplomatic relations and tourist travel with the Communist regime was along as a willing GOP  prop for his basketball playing pal Barack Obama, with whom Flake’s cultivated a fast friendship.

Will there be a state trip to Cuba to pay respects to the evil dictator?  It should be remembered that Obama snubbed the funeral of Great Britain’s  conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

The embarrassing Pope Francis, a fellow traveler who met Fidel Castro when he visited Cuba last year, sent a telegram in Spanish to Fidel’s younger brother Raul, who currently rules the island, saying he had received the “sad news” of “the death of your dear brother,” adding, “I express to you my sentiments of grief.”

Not to be outdone, 92-year-old Democrat former president Jimmy Carter also mourned the murderous dictator, saying:  “Rosalynn and I share our sympathies with the Castro family and the Cuban people on the death of Fidel Castro. We remember fondly our visits with him in Cuba and his love of his country. We wish the Cuban citizens peace and prosperity in the years ahead.’ The tyrannical Castro had an odd way of exhibiting his “Love of his country.”

President-elect Donald Trump stood alone as a beacon of freedom as he issued this cogent statement: “The world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades; Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.”

In a dramatic repudiation of both the radical status quo, and the unreliable Establishment, America clearly picked a winner on November 8, 2016.


President-elect Trump making top notch cabinet slections

November 19, 2016

Top quality picks will bolster new administration

Donald Trump is making all the right moves as he picks Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) for U.S. Attorney General, Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KA) as director of the Central Intelligence Agency and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as national security adviser. With a Republican dominated Senate, his exceedingly capable selections should easily win approval.  Unlike the other cabinet posts, national security adviser does not require senate confirmation. (links include bios.)

Each of the three nominees have years of experience in Washington and stood firm against the GOP establishment to support Trump from the onset of his campaign.

Today Donald Trump will be meeting with former Massachusetts governor and failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Unlike those previously selected for top posts, Romney has been a harsh critic of the president-elect. Other meetings will be taking place throughout the weekend. Romney is not deserving of any post in the Trump administration.

Earlier this week in a surprise move, Trump named Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to the chief of staff position. Steve Bannon, executive chairman of the conservative Breitbart News was selected as chief strategist and senior counselor.


Judicial Watch, Russell Pearce sue AZ AG for communications with ACLU

November 15, 2016

AZ AG Mark Brnovich pays $1.4 million of taxpayer money to ACLU

Seeing Red AZ rarely gives space to press releases, but this stunner is a worthy exception. We see no need to read and regurgitate this important information for you. An enlarged version of the 5-page lawsuit can be seen here.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 14, 2016

Judicial Watch and Russell Pearce Sue Arizona Attorney General for Communications with ACLU

Lawsuit Seeks Records of Settlement of SB 1070 Case Undermining Rule of Law

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch announced today that it and former Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce filed a lawsuit to obtain records of communications between Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office, the ACLU and other groups challenging Arizona immigration enforcement law S.B. 1070. The lawsuit was filed in Maricopa County Superior Court (Judicial Watch and Russell Pearce v. Office of Attorney General Mark Brnovich (No. CV2016-016945).

Judicial Watch and Senator Pearce’s lawsuit was filed on November 9, 2016, after the Attorney General’s office failed to respond to a request for records under Arizona’s Public Records Law. The request sought records of communications between the Attorney General’s Office, the ACLU and other illegal alien advocacy groups that resulted in a settlement of a lawsuit challenging S.B. 1070. The settlement was formalized in an agreement called a “Joint Case Disposition.” The September 20, 2016, request sought records concerning:

Communications, correspondence, and contacts between the Arizona Attorney General’s Office and counsel for plaintiffs in Valle del Sol, et al. v. Whiting, et al., Case No. CV-10-1061-PHX-SRB (D. Ariz.) concerning or relating to the Joint Case Disposition submitted to the court on September 15, 2016. Such records include, but are not limited to, records of discussions resulting in the agreement to submit to the court the Joint Case Disposition.

Under Arizona law the Attorney General’s office was required to respond “promptly” to the records request. After nearly two months, the Attorney General has failed to comply.

The request seeks to shed light on the unusual settlement of the SB 1070 case, including an agreement that the Attorney General would issue an “informal opinion” setting forth his “interpretation” of the meaning of certain provision of SB 1070. The agreement also provided for payment of $1.4 million of taxpayer money to the ACLU and other groups. The U.S. Supreme Court struck down parts of the SB 1070 law in 2012, but other provisions were left untouched, including a provision to allow police officers individuals for proof of immigration status.

“The public has a right to know if the Arizona Attorney General outsourced his work to the ACLU and other illegal alien advocates,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “By stonewalling this request, the Attorney General is thumbing his nose at the rule of law. And we have little doubt that this is all about thwarting any illegal immigration enforcement by a Trump administration.”

“With this settlement, the Attorney General undermined the rule of law,” said Senator Pearce.

“Why is the Attorney General hiding his communications with illegal alien advocates? Why is the Attorney General negotiating the meaning of duly-enacted laws with the ACLU? When did the citizens of Arizona elect the ACLU as Attorney General?”

After filing the Valle del Sol v Whiting case in May 2013, the ACLU conducted a sweeping subpoena “witch hunt” against Judicial Watch and dozens of conservative organizations and individuals that had supported SB 1070. Among those targeted by the ACLU were more than twenty current and former members of the Arizona State Legislature, public interest groups such as the Center for Immigration Studies, NumbersUSA, and the American Legislative Exchange Council, nine police associations, including the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police and the Arizona Highway Patrol Association, the Arizona State Republican Party, the Arizona African American Republican Club, the Arizona Republican Assembly, and three Arizona senior citizens who had no apparent connection to SB 1070.

Judicial Watch and Senator Pearce are represented by William T. Luzader of Luzader Law PLLC in Phoenix, Arizona.

Trump picks Priebus as chief of staff, Bannon chief strategist

November 14, 2016

Priebus is GOPe — Bannon represents conservative ideas

Donald Trump ran as an outsider — outside the mainstream Republican construct. Throughout his campaign he was often denigrated by the establishment, horrified at the prospect of a president they couldn’t control.

For that reason alone, naming Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to the chief of staff position is, puzzling, to say the least. To conservatives, the RNC is the establishment personified — everything the populist conservative movement that propelled Trump to the presidency rejects. Priebus, Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are what we have just given the boot to in electing Trump.

Businessman Trump was elected, against all odds, for a reason. He won the presidential nomination over 16 other primary candidates. All but Trump, Dr. Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina possessed arm’s length government resumes.

Donald Trump represents new ideas.  The old ones definitely haven’t worked out all that well as evidenced by the last eight years of Barack Obama’s reign in which he ignored the Constitution and bypassed congress at will. Trump needs to show his loyal, conservative, core base of support that being elected doesn’t mean he’s abandoning the principles he ran on.

The establishment has used a megaphone within its own conferences, repeating the echo chamber tripe that Republicans can’t win elections without embracing amnesty, always slickly repackaged as “comprehensive immigration reform.” Trump’s election has boldly proven that canard is false.

Priebus represents more of the same and will surely counsel President Trump to back away from many of the concepts that put him over the top last Tuesday. Just days ago SRAZ wrote “Trump’s vow to enforce border security propelled him forward.”

Yet following the Romney/Ryan 2012 loss, Priebus, a Ryan ally, released this 97-page GOP “autopsy that concluded Republicans must embrace amnesty in order to remain relevant. “We must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform. If we do not, our Party’s appeal will continue to shrink to its core constituencies only,” the report states.

Obviously he couldn’t have been more wrong.  American citizens are not opposed to legal immigration, but are vehemently opposed to gifting citizenship to illegal invaders who disrespect .our sovereign border.

Steve Bannon, executive chairman of the conservative Breitbart News has been named as President-elect Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor. He and Priebus appear to be diametrically opposed on major issues.  Trump’s announcement said the duo “would be working as equal partners to transform the federal government.”

Time will tell.

FBI Dir. Comey caves again — Sunday before election

November 7, 2016

 ….Nothing new here, folks, move on, move on

Released on the Sunday afternoon preceding Election Day, FBI Director James Comey’s terse letter to congress, contains this preposterous sentence: 

“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”

GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s cogent response delivered to a crowd of thousands in the Detroit suburb of Sterling Heights, Michigan after receiving the news:

‘You can’t review 650,000 new emails in eight days! You can’t do it, folks!’

Jeff Flake brings in the old guns for campaign kickoff

November 4, 2016

Jeff_Mcflake_II

The Flake refuses to support GOP presidential nominee, but wants our vote

The dino duo of John McCain and Jon Kyl is ready to reprise the rusty act that barely squeaked Jeff Flake across the finish line during his maiden senate race. With all of the heavy lifting they did for him, Flake managed a slim 3-point margin of victory in 2012. Former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona, a Democrat George W. Bush appointee who both McCain and Kyl previously supported (video), turned out to be a more formidable foe than expected and Flake never came close to fulfilling the 11-to-16 point projected lead.

The pro-amnesty Arizona Republic newspaper was also giving him grief when he emulated his mentors John McCain and Jon Kyl (brief campaign videos under links) in an effort to win votes, and went hard-line against the illegal invasion.  Flake was scornfully blasted as a mere “politician, no longer a statesman” in an editorial. His politically motivated and momentary change of heart was labeled “jarring.” The editoralist need not have worried. Immediately after warming the seat of his plush chair on the banks of the Potomac, Flake joined McCain on an amnesty scheme.

For a memory refresher, read the March 2011 postOops — Jeff Flake’s crown slips as he sinks to mere McPolitician.”  And remember Gun Owners of America accuses Flake of stabbing gun owners in the back. In June, we posted Jeff Flake colludes with liberals on gun control.

But this Saturday at an early morning $30 breakfast — your used “souvenir” hot beverage mug is available for an additional $10 —  at a hotel that touts itself as a “3.2-mile drive from the Phoenix Zoo,” the amnesty trio will be glad-handing and making promises. McCain, now in his 80s, will be  4 days away from his sixth six-year senate race results. Yet, he magnanimously finds time to help his doppelganger Jeff Flake. Kyl even took valuable time away from his lucrative duties as a top DC lobbyist at a multinational firm in an effort to ensure smooth sailing for Flake.

Count on their efforts falling on deaf ears. As Conservative Republicans are working tirelessly to get Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump elected, Jeff the Flake has steadfastly and publicly refused to endorse or even vote for Trump. McCain has withdrawn his lukewarm support.

Constitutional Conservative Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and two-term state senator has recently announced her challenge to freshman senator Jeff Flake. She’s battle-tested, having come off a senate race against deceitful, Soros-backed John McCain. We were proud to support Kelli Ward in that race, and are committed to her success in the upcoming senate race. The stakes are too high to equivocate. Jeff Flake is beatable.
