Fake news breeds fake polls

July 25, 2017

We’ve been hearing a lot about Fake News  recently. This USA/iMedia Ethics poll illustrates the extent to which relentless negative news manipulation impacts the average American. The all-caps headlines in the Monday edition of USA Today trumpets AMERICANS ARE SPLIT 42% – 42% ON IMPEACHING PRESIDENT.

We’ll focus on just four questions. The first is the one from which the headline numbers are derived. It also provides a means for the leftist Gannett publication to gauge the effectiveness of its skewed content — which is now folded inside the anorexic Arizona Republic to give it heft. By the poll’s own admission, the sampling numbers vary depending on the questions as does the margin of error.

Based on what you’ve read and heard, do you think the Congress should?…Or should not? Impeach Donald Trump and remove him from the presidency, or are you not sure?

How upset would you be if Congress does NOT impeach President Trump and remove him from office?

How upset would you be if Congress DOES impeach President Trump and remove him from the presidency?

The poll concludes with this ominous question:

Whatever your views of Donald Trump, what do you think about his chances of serving out the four years of his current term?

Seeing Red AZ also has a question:

Where was such a poll when Barack Obama was president?

Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution sets the Standards for Impeachment.*

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Seeing Red AZ risks being labeled crass to tell the truth

July 24, 2017

There’s no way to win the etiquette award going after a desperately ill man. But the integrity of Seeing Red AZ requires that we speak the truth and remain faithful to the Constitution and Republican platform.

So it is we expose the Sunday, July 23, 2017 edition of the Arizona Republic and its obsessive recrafting of John McCain. The dramatic headline, “An arena without its fighter,” sits above a  photo of a hallway view of McCain’s Washington D.C. U.S. Senate office with the mahogany door ajar, showing an elegant interior including an exquisite marble fireplace and velvet upholstered chair.  The outer view features an American flag flanking a black and gold gleaming wall plaque identifying the office as that of Senator John McCain.

Above the headline is a deceptive quote from McCain’s protégé Jeff Flake:

“One of the most important roles he has played, obviously, over the past six months is as one who reassured the world that America is still gong to lead. He was a calming, consistent voice when we needed it.”

Think about that message. Jeff Flake, who broadcast his refusal to vote for Republican nominee — now U.S. President Donald Trump, as did John McCain and his family — is actually saying that since Trump’s election the world needed McCain’s assurance that it would still rotate on its axis. The same McCain who hand carried to the FBI director, the phony Russian dossier intended to destroy President Trump within short order after his inauguration. Flake, who remains a close associate of Barack Obama, even promoted Obama’s lame duck Democrat nominee, Merrick Garland for the U.S. Supreme Court, saying it was ‘time to act’ on his nomination.  President Trump actually nominated conservative Judge Neil Gorsuch who now sits on the high court.

Let’s be clear. Sick or well, intemperate McCain, who has spent his career colluding with Democrats, is a rabidly jealous man who has never gotten over his own presidential defeat and begrudges President Trump  his spectacular 2016 victory. Arizona’s two Republicrat senators are determined to bring him down even if it requires a last breath, losing the next election or ultimately destroying the Republican Party.


USA Today perfects Winston Smith’s Newspeak

July 14, 2017

Altering words doesn’t change facts

Today is Bastille Day, traditionally a day of celebration in France. Last year irrevocably changed that, turning the day into one of grief. Memorial services are planned to honor the 86 victims of a rampaging nearly 20-truck whose driver purposely plowed into the crowd of revelers, including families with children eating ice cream, strolling the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France after the fireworks display ended. In addition to those killed, there were 435 who were wounded in the attack.

Gannett, the parent company of the failing, left-wing Arizona Republic newspaper, now inserts a copy of its USA Today newspaper in with the barely there daily in a vain attempt to give it heft.  Gannett’s stock has tumbled from $17.49  on Dec. 5, 2015 to  now struggling to stay afloat in the $8.00 range.  

This might be the reason:

The caption beneath a photo of two men who were seriously wounded in the attack names them and says, they “were injured in Nice when someone drove a truck through a crowd last year. “

“Someone?’

The 31-year-old killer’s name is Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel. He was a Tunisian Muslim living in France, who had been previously arrested for theft and gun violations, had his sentences suspended and was not deported. He was killed by police at the scene of the massacre.

Gannett’s absurd politically correct contrivance is reminiscent of Winston Smith, the protagonist in George Orwell’s best seller titled, “1984.” Smith was employed as a clerk in the government’s Ministry of Truth Records Department. His job was to rewrite historical documents to align with the constantly changing current political deception. Newspeak, a reduced language became the tool to limit free thought and concepts posing a threat to the totalitarian regime.  Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct was classified as “thought crime,” “crime think,” or “doublethink.

Smith’s work included manipulating facts, revising newspaper articles and doctoring photographs to remove “unpersons,” the term used to describe people who had fallen out of favor with the party.  We servatives are “unpersons” to the MSM liberals. But we still have a voice. We need to continue to use it.

When his book was published in 1949, Orwell wrote, “By 2050 — earlier, probably — all real knowledge of Oldspeak will have disappeared.”  He turned out to be a reliable prophet.


Did you miss Carlos Santana?  No, you didn’t

July 1, 2017

Trump hater hypocritically talks “power of peace” while reviling U.S. President

With his Woodstock LSD-addled days supposedly behind him, the now 70-year-old musician Carlos Santana appeared in concert last night at a Valley casino. Ticket prices peaked at $150 a seat.

But it’s not the overpriced tickets for a has-been entertainer that might grab your attention. It’s his words in the local newspaper’s interview that should chill any future interest in this long-in-the-tooth performer. Mexican-born Santana, who became a naturalized citizen in 1965, still doesn’t get the U.S. election system.  Numerous people run for the presidency but ultimately one gets elected, because the message they carried resonated with the majority of voters.

It’s a good bet few who read this site were Obama supporters, but we waited until his time in office was over and went to work, ultimately electing Donald Trump. Unlike his predecessor, he didn’t issue vague promises of “Hope and Change,” bribe gullible voters with free cell phones or repeatedly lie (video montage) about his unsustainable, socialized health care scheme. He spoke instead about making America “great again,” which resonated with weary voters across the country. A business entrepreneur, he has made American private sector job creation a prominent feature of his administration. 

President Trump’s many successes are of no consequence to Carlos Santana, who goes off the deep end in an an unconcealed liberal political rant peppered with lies and led on by ‘music critic’ Ed Masley. Supposedly pitching “the power of peace,” his far leftist views will make you glad you missed the concert. After discussing music, the interview veered off into liberal hate speech:

Q: You’re not especially fond of the new administration in America.

A: Who is? Other than the Ku Klux Klan, I mean, who is? It’s not unity and harmony. It’s fear, fear, fear, fear, fear. It’s built on monetary interests. I have endured as a person LBJ, Nixon, Ronald Reagan, the two Bushes and this guy. It’s the same guy with a different face, you know?

Q: You think?

A: I know so. But one thing that’s happening is America is thirsty for righteousness and integrity. And more and more people are waking up to “You know what? We need to change ourselves and what’s happening.”

Q: How do you stay hopeful in the face of all the fear?

A: Well, thank you for asking that. Every day, when I wake up in the morning, I thank God for life and existence and I especially thank him for Nikola Tesla, because he invented the remote control. I pick it up and as soon as I see Donald Trump, I change the channel or turn it off. So he has absolutely no power over me whatsoever.

I just turn his ass right off. And I listen to birds. I listen to the clouds passing. I don’t give him anything at all from my attention, energy or concentration. I just zap him right out of my house. He has no power over me. And that’s how I stay positive.


Who actually colluded with Russia? Where was the coverage?

June 30, 2017

Obama and McCain got passes for their schemes

Now that it’s been revealed that the relentless CNN contrivances posing as reports regarding President Trump colluding with Russia were all ratings and revenue driven schemes promoted by the network’s president Jeff Zucker, let’s do a quick review of two actual collusions that never merited investigation:

Here is then-President Barack Obama caught on an open mic during a meeting in South Korea, assuring Russia’s then-President Dmitry Medvedev that after his reelection he would have “more “flexibility.”  Medvedev is currently the Prime Minister of Russia. This merited silence from the Obama worshiping press.

Or how about John McCain’s notorious “dossier” that he was all too happy to hand carry to then-FBI director James Comey, supposedly implicating newly elected President Trump in a compromising Russian scandal? The U.K.‘s Daily Mail outs McCain as a virulent enemy of Donald Trump. 

Rebublicrats McCain and Jeff  Flake refused to support the Republican nominee during the 2016 presidential election. Both of Arizona’s U.S. Senators aided liberal Hillary Clinton, who was actually scandal plagued.

As we now know, that “dossier” was, as Van Jones would say, “a real nothing burger.”


Pres. Trump is right: Fake News abounds — CNN is proof & UPDATES

American Pravda: Blatant lies driven by ratings, increased revenue and desire to take down President Donald Trump

CNN, a committed anti-Trump network has been exposed by James O’Keefe of Project Veritas. Three network employees were “urged to resign” after they revealed to O’Keefe that the Russian / Trump linkage was a fabrication. “Mostly Bullsh*t,” they called it.

The CNN employees caught on tape admit the negativity aimed at Trump — specifically the Russian narrative — is good for business, even though there is no proof of its veracity. After the big reveal of CNN’s overt role in the contrivances, the network has retracted the “reports.”  Other videos are due to be released by Project Veritas. We will add them with an ‘UPDATE” headline tag to this post as they become available.

The New York Post reports additional information regarding CNN.

John McCain & George Soros: Decades long nefarious connections

June 22, 2017

Radical leftist Soros aims to influence elections and public policy with cash infusions

High dollar donations from suspect characters and dubious international players are hallmarks of the McCain Institute for International Leadership, housed at Arizona State University. its shady dealings need not only a bright light but a good dose of disinfectant.

The Daily Caller reports that critics note that the institute’s donors and McCain’s personal leadership in the organization’s exclusive “Sedona Forum” bear an uncanny resemblance to the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) that annually co-mingled special interests and powerful political players in alleged pay-to-play schemes.

The McCain Institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.” Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals.

ABC 15 AZ  reported in 2016 on a $1 million Saudi Arabian donation to the institute, a contribution the McCain group has refused to explain publicly.

Even the far-left Washington Post questions the legitimacy of McCain’s claim that he has nothing to do with the institute that bears his name.

Donations at or exceeding $100,000 include monies raised by McCain Presidential Campaign. Also on the list are the McCain Institute Foundation and Cindy Hensley McCain’s Hensley Beverage Company. In the $25,000 – $99,999 category is McCain’s socialist friend, multi-billionaire George Soros, who disdains international borders. The notorious Gregory and Lisa WendtSan Francisco liberals who have worked with McCain operatives to oust elected precinct committeemen in Arizona precincts — are on the list, as is “The Smith Richardson Foundation’s grant [which] supports the project: From Reset to Containment: In Search of a Better U.S. Policy towards Putin’s Russia.”  This sounds suspiciously akin to the issue  McCain has been manufacturing  to discredit President Donald Trump.

Socialist Soros, one of the most powerful men o the planet, controls a vast network of radical organizations that is nearly unfathomable. Through them, he and his family are able to mobilize street mobs, turning incidents into incendiary hordes of rioters as we’ve seen repeatedly.  Ferguson, Missouri was a single example. The thuggery and violence associated with Black Lives Matter was a direct result of Soros’ influence and money.  Discover the Networks, a guide to the political left, has a wealth of information.

In 2016 Politico reported that George Soros’ latest quest was a “quiet overhaul of America’s criminal justice system. Here in Arizona, he funded a losing candidate for Maricopa County Attorney and a winning candidate for sheriff, spending $2 million to topple Sheriff Joe Arpaio and install Democrat Paul Penzone. Liberal Democrats and RINOs are the recipients of his generosity. Check out Open Secrets lists under Recipients and Congressional Committees.
