Biden’s Homeland Insecurity chief Mayorkas double-talks border

February 2, 2023

Wherever there are massive efforts to undermine American sovereignty, count on the fact that America–hating, multibillionaire, one-worlder George Soros is behind the schemes. Now his son Alexander is taking the reins as he hobs and nobs with democrats, as reported by the New York Post. Be sure to scroll through the photographic evidence.

Just as we don’t capitalize the word democrat, Seeing Red AZ does not use the term “migrants” to describe illegal invaders.

Ukraine: Biden’s reckless proxy war

January 31, 2023

As the war in Ukraine escalates, with Russia sending more troops and munitions to the now ravaged nation — displacing civilians who survive to wander the frozen (average Jan. temperature in Kyiv is 27°F) wasteland with the clothes on their backs. Previously a major producer and world-wide exporter of wheat and corn, displaced Ukrainians are now wondering how they will provide sustenance for themselves and their families.

According to Reuters News, Russia warned the United States on Monday that the last remaining pillar of bilateral nuclear arms control could expire in 2026 without a replacement due to what it said were U.S. efforts to inflict “strategic defeat” on Moscow in Ukraine.

We are not authorities on Ukraine and its untenable situation, but we do read and watch the news. We also remain attuned to former President Donald Trump who recently posted this on his Truth Social Account.

The New York Post headlined a recent report, ‘Biden mislabels Ukraine as aggressor while announcing tanks to Kyiv.’

Dan Steinbock, who writes for The American Conservative authored, “The unwarranted Ukraine proxy war: A year later,” which is illuminating.


Liar George Santos has an AZ rival named Christian Lamar

January 30, 2023

The name George Santos, who was a proficient enough liar to get elected to congress in New York, is emblazoned in our memories since his whoppers were ongoing and his actions outrageous. The link in the previous sentence contains a national news report revealing his preposterous lies.

Christian Lamar, a repeat, though losing, Arizona legislative candidate, was just elected as one of three to a low level obscure CD8 Member-at-Large post at the GOP meeting on Saturday, which he will use as a stepping stone for public office. The other two elected to the post were a state legislator and district chairman.

Lamar lacks any credentials, though he was previously charged and convicted of hitting his live-in girlfriend and coming after her with a frying pan while he was intoxicated. This occurred following a fight they had at a casino. Lamar maintained his innocence, despite three courts upholding the conviction. He then ludicrously filed a civil rights lawsuit against the female responding officer, the Phoenix Police Department, the city and other departments over the arrest, claiming his Fifth and 14th Amendment rights were violated and the investigation was maliciously turned against him due to his race and gender. Christian Lamar sought $7 million in damages, which was tossed by a federal judge. Had he won, he would have been made rich on the backs of law-abiding taxpayers, whose votes he continually seeks.

Christian Lamar was also the subject of a civil lawsuit brought by Midland Funding in 2021.


VP Kamala’s calculated omissions in Roe v. Wade speech

January 24, 2023

In a pro-abortion speech in Florida, actually celebrating the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade on Monday, the vice president of the United States purposely misquoted the Declaration of Independence, deliberately leaving out the words “life” and “Creator.”

Kamala Harris deviously stated four times, “So we are here together because we collectively believe and know America is a promise. America is a promise. It is a promise of freedom and liberty — not for some, but for all.”  She continues: “A promise we made in the Declaration of Independence that we are each endowed with the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

The actual words are: “…endowed by [their] Creator with certain unalienable Rights…that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Harris also referred to abortion sites as “clinics,” as though they dispense health care instead of facilities where certain death of pre-born children is the ultimate goal. National Right to Life puts the most recent compilation of deaths at “More than 64 million.”


AZ’s dem Gov. Katie Hobbs’ lavish inaugural events ultimately funded by…YOU

January 19, 2023

Mega donors buy influence with money Arizonans paid for their goods and services

After vowing a commitment to bipartisanship, progress and accountability in her inauguration speech, Arizona’s democrat Gov. Katie Hobbs has worked mightily to conceal the amounts contributed by high dollar donors who funded her inaugural events, including the Jan. 7, 2023 ball held at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale. Ultimately, the sponsors, listed here — minus contribution amounts — include all of us, since utility companies, banks, health care providers, food distributors, PepsiCo, the Phoenix Suns, AT&T, CVS drug stores, others listed only by initials, unions and, of course, Cindy Hensley McCain’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship supported Hobbs. Additionally, ‘Everytown for Gun Safety,’ a firearm restrictionist organization founded by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, ponied up funds for her political extravaganzas. It has been reported by several news organizations that the total amount Hobbs hauled in was nearly $1.5 million in donations from corporations and other special interests to cover the celebratory costs, although the events ultimately cost about $207,000.

Hold onto your hats, Arizona taxpayers. This formerly teetering on the edge of bankruptcy democrat governor, thinks you are her own personal golden egg laying geese. Watch as the spending spree begins. Be sure to thank the democrats you know who put this nightmare on the ninth floor of the AZ Capitol building.


In remembrance of Russell Pearce and the fate of the “Republic”

January 18, 2023

Although it is not our policy to post articles we did not write or something of this length, this is the worthy exception. Read it and you’ll understand.

A Celebration of the Life of Russell Pearce took place Monday, January 16 in the town he always called home…Mesa. Friends, family, and a crowd of admirers assembled to celebrate the life of this conservative stalwart and thoroughly decent man.

Former Congressman JD Hayworth was in attendance, and could not help but notice the difference between Monday’s service and the “send-off” provided by the daily newspaper. It prompted Hayworth to pen this column, reprinted below.


Russell Pearce and the fate of the “Republic”

You need not look very far to find the latest evidence reaffirming the well-earned nickname of The Arizona Republic.

A reading of the Jan. 5 article on the death of former State Senator Russell Pearce brings to mind the single word that serves both as an accurate description of that sickly publication’s open borders bias…as well as its oft-employed sobriquet: Repugnant.

The trio of creative writers tasked with putting Pearce’s passing “in perspective” certainly didn’t disappoint their editorial overlords; they deliberately mischaracterized the intent of his carefully crafted, ultimately passed, and signed-into-law Senate Bill 1070.

Actually, headline writers began the barrage by calling the legislation “controversial.” That word serves as the “tell sign” when a publication disapproves of the subject of its coverage. Reporters Andrew Oxford, Mary Jo Pitzl, and Daniel Gonzalez weren’t far behind; by the article’s third paragraph, they included predictable leftist doggerel, peddled as fact: “Arizona’s ‘show me your papers’ law,” they wrote.

Had the trio of scribes been interested in objectivity instead of smearing the departed, a simple bit of research into SB 1070 and its fate in the courts would have been highlighted.

The “Fair and Legal Employment Act,” as Pearce named the legislation, drafted in consultation with then-Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who now serves as that state’s Attorney General, was formulated with the intent of defining Arizona’s right to identify and detain illegal immigrants, based on existing federal law.

As Senator Pearce said in 2010, in response to the inevitable court challenges from the Obama Administration and other advocates for open borders, “SB 1070 makes no new immigration law. It simply enforces the laws already on the books…I refuse to apologize for standing up for America and the rule of law.”

In fact, no less a liberal tribunal than the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit made clear in 1983 that nothing in federal law precludes a city from enforcing the criminal provisions of immigration law, and SB 1070, its supporters maintained, simply advanced that same practice for the entire state of Arizona.

But the intervening 27 years brought forth an activism intent on defining “open borders” as noble, and any effort to enforce existing immigration law as wrongheaded, or on “the wrong side of history,” to use the favorite buzz-phrase of the left.

Such a dubious cause sought to wrap itself in legitimacy, and exploit the growing realization that many jurists on the federal bench were more than willing to usurp legislative authority if such a drastic action were in tune with their own political goals. Instead of “equal justice under law,” our nation has witnessed the advent of “unequal application of the law, based upon political preference.”

Eventually, the U.S. Supreme Court considered the constitutionality of SB 1070, and the high court, while finding some portions of the legislation in conflict with federal law, upheld the provision that the left and its media lackeys still mischaracterize.

Far from radical, the “Supremes” found that seeking documentation for a person’s immigration status was entirely reasonable. The ruling stated that if law enforcement officers have stopped a subject for a legitimate reason, those officers must “reasonably attempt” to determine that subject’s immigration status when there is a “reasonable suspicion” that the person may be in the country illegally.

But reasonableness means nothing to the rabid, and the reporting of the “Repugnant” focuses on pleasing a particular point of view typified by those whose hatred of Russell Pearce has not abated…even after his earthly departure.

How else to describe the featured comments of one “community activist,” who compared Pearce to a terrorist? Said this “activist,” whose name is omitted from this column since she is undeserving of any additional notoriety: “I’m sad for all the terror that he caused our community, [and] all the people who were deported because of his political grandstanding.”

For good measure, the “Repugnant” reporters felt the need to include one more example of this self-appointed “humanitarian’s” inhumanity: her desire to see the deceased lampooned for laughs. “She would love to see one last political cartoon showing Pearce standing at the gates of Heaven, and being asked to ‘show his papers.’”

What does The Arizona Republic have to show for its desired editorial goal of open borders and its eager embrace of amnesty for illegal aliens? Fewer readers, for one thing. A budget awash in red ink, for another.

Russell Pearce met the fate that awaits us all. Now he belongs to history.

The smug and self-assured, so eager to bid him farewell will soon find the publication for which they toil facing its own demise. Maybe then, the staff of The Arizona Republic will realize that they are on “the wrong side of history.”


Biden photo-ops sanitized El Paso border in quickie pass by

January 9, 2023

Has ignored cataclysmic southern border, visit would intrude on vacations

Joe Biden is renowned for not visiting the southern U.S. border, though teeming with thousands of illegal aliens from counties world wide. Since being inaugurated January 20, 2021, he has finally stopped off in a hastily cleaned up El Paso, Texas, on his way to the North American Leaders’ Summit in Mexico City. El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser has previously declared a state of emergency (read it here) in response to the crisis.

When Donald Trump was president, Biden fancifully described “horrifying scenes” at the U.S. southern border of “kids being kept in cages” and federal agents “ripping children from their mothers’ arms.” But nearly two years into his presidency, Biden has never prioritized visiting the border despite thousands of costly illegal aliens boldly flooding into our country every day. Many are previously deported criminals. When visiting a semi-conductor plant in Arizona, he was noted for defending his decision to skip visiting the border telling reporters, “There are more important things going on.”

Biden has made dozens of trips to his Delaware home which have cost taxpayers at least $11 Million as of November 18, 2022, according to the New York Post, and particularly enjoys traveling to the Caribbean as covered by RedState Dec. 22, 2022.

Brain-dead Biden obviously needs diversions since he is disconnected from the realities of the world around him and the duties associated with being the leader of the free world.


Ruth McGregor an odd choice to restore AZ election confidence

January 8, 2023

Following a November 2022 Election Day (and into the night) debacle with long lines of frustrated voters and ballots that didn’t print correctly, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors announced its intention to get to the bottom of the countless snafus. “This Board of Supervisors has always been committed to continuous improvement. When things don’t work, we find out why. Today we are announcing an important step in our efforts to get to the bottom of the printer issues that affected some Vote Centers,” the board said in a statement.

The board’s bizarre choice to lead the investigation is former Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Ruth V. McGregor, 80, a lifelong democrat. She was appointed to the Arizona Supreme Court in 1998 by Republican Gov. Jane Dee Hull, a longtime friend. The women met when they were both teachers married to medical doctors.

Voting for Republicans who could ultimately be in charge of elections is no longer an assurance of integrity, as we’ve seen with Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, an opportunistic party switcher.

Faulty printers created ballots that were too light to be processed by some tabulators and caused backups at polling places on general election day and into the night. Despite problems with the ballots, the county claimed all votes were counted, and everyone who stayed in line at polling places was given the opportunity to vote.

Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates, elected as a Republican, called a recent court ruling against GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, “A win for Arizona voters and American democracy.”

Maricopa County Republicans need a new crop of candidates, who actually possess conservative principles.


Dem Gov. Hobbs takes oath of office, goes mute…issues statements

January 3, 2023

Hobbs’ mother holds family bible for swearing in. Husband and kids were not pictured alongside the new governor

In a disparaging statement pointedly aimed at her two-term Republican predecessor Doug Ducey, following her swearing-in as Arizona’s governor, Katie Hobbs noted, “Today marks a new chapter for Arizona. As we look forward to a brighter future, I pledge that the needs of Arizonans…not partisan politics…will always come first.”

Hobbs, who cowardly refused to debate her Republican opponent Kari Lake, during the campaign, has so far issued statements rather than speaking. “I will work with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents to tackle our state’s biggest challenges,” the statement read, naming “abortion rights,” among her top priorities. Killing innocent pre-born babies is a major concern for Hobbs. However, not a word was uttered about the unparalleled crisis at our southern border since Joe Biden assumed office and began tearing down the much-needed border wall that was prioritized and under construction during the presidency of Donald Trump.

When Hobbs, whose home was previously in foreclosure as she supplemented her state senate income as an Uber driver, pledged that the needs of Arizonans will be met. She steered clear of mentioning Talonya Adams. Hobbs no doubt feared a debate would focus negative attention on their interactions, when as then-senate minority leader she was party to a discrimination lawsuit filed against the senate in U.S. Federal Court by Talonya Adams a lawyer/policy advisor for the Arizona Senate democrats. Ms. Adams alleged racial and sexual discrimination based on asking to be paid as much as her white male counterparts. According to this 12News report, Hobbs was less than two months into her job as minority leader when Adams was fired. Adams had been in her policy adviser position for three years. The jury awarded Ms. Adams $2.75 million. Katie Hobbs issued an apology…which is more than Arizona voters could expect as she hid from them, refusing to debate for the state’s top job.

Ducey, who has aided Hobbs’ transition, reportedly left a note behind in his office for his successor, a copy of which was provided by Hobbs’ staff. The four-paragraph handwritten note on state letterhead congratulated Hobbs on her victory, wished her success and stated, “Every day as governor is an adventure. It is the greatest job in politics and an immense responsibility. I know you will serve the people of Arizona well.”

If he’s not engaging in irony, Ducey’s next job could be as a stand-up comedian.


Heart-tugging report misses its mark as “victim” caused her own woes

December 30, 2022

Misplaced sympathy encourages more government dependency

It wasn’t much of a surprise to see the local newspaper take up the cause of a “single mother” with three children who whines “the tuition tax credit isn’t frivolous for parents like me.” Karla Garcia is described as “parenting an 11-year-old, a four-year-old and a new baby boy alone while putting myself through college.”

Garcia is given aid and comfort by the newspaper as she describes the situation she brought about, worrying about putting food on the table. When she got pregnant three times, it’s a good bet she wasn’t thinking about feeding her growing brood. Why would she, when she gets benefits she can’t afford paid for by Arizona taxpayers who prudently limit their family size and opt to take a path where they earn money that is confiscated in taxes to subsidize her outside the mainstream lifestyle. The majority of those funding Karla Garcia and her boys, got educated first, found jobs, got married and then had their children. Garcia wants the rest of us to underwrite her risky choices. The children, none of whom have fathers mentioned in the report, are the innocent victims of their mother’s erratic decisions.

She deserves no sympathy, but her young children deserve a mother who acts responsibly.
