AZ 2nd Amendment rally at state capitol draws massive crowd

February 16, 2020

One place you can be sure AZ U.S. Senate candidate Mark Kelly didn’t show his face was at the Second Amendment rally at the state capitol Saturday. Far leftist, Soros-supported Kelly, who is running as a Democrat for a U.S. Senate seat occupied by Sen. Martha McSally, is a gun restrictionist, who with his wife, former AZ U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, founded organizations whose ultimate purpose is gun confiscation.

Many of the thousands of attendees at the event wore shirts emblazoned with the words, “Gun control is not about guns, it’s about control.”

Kelly, along with Giffords, runs the major gun control-focused group Giffords PAC,* which between its hybrid PAC and 501(c)(4) nonprofit Giffords,* spent nearly $7 million to aid Democrat congressional candidates, while targeting Republicans in 2018.

This Feb. 2019 SRAZ post,Mark Kelly, AZ gun hypocrite, announces for US Senate,” exposes Democrats and their gun hypocrisy. Breitbart News, following a tip, photographed Mark Kelly making personal gun purchases at a Tucson gun store.

The high citizen turnout at AZ’s 7th annual “Celebrate and Protect the Second Amendment rally was driven by concerns over gun control legislation introduced by Democrats this session intended to limit firearm sales and transfers, expand background checks and ban high capacity rifles. Read Senate Bill 1624.

Gun restrictionist Mark Kelly is challenging Arizona incumbent Republican Sen. McSally. A graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, she previously represented Arizona’s second congressional district for two terms in the House of Representatives. She served 26 years in the U.S. Air Force, retiring in 2010 as a full Colonel. As the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat and first to command a fighter squadron in combat in U.S. history, she respects the unique right we have as American citizens enshrined in the Second Amendment.

Arizonans who value their constitutional based rights understand the importance of this election.

AZ AG Brnovich wins stay on ballot harvesting law

February 12, 2020

Voter fraud at issue

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has granted Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s motion to stay the Court’s mandate in the DNC v. Hobbs case. The Feb. 11, 2020 order ensures Arizona’s ban on ballot harvesting and the law regarding out-of-precinct voting will remain in place until the U.S. Supreme Court has a chance to hear the appeal of the case.

“Our job is to defend the law and we’re not going to let out-of-state special interests systematically dismantle our election integrity safeguards,” said Attorney General Mark Brnovich. “Arizonans should determine what common sense voter fraud laws are appropriate for our state.”

The court order can be read here.

Democrats refer to curtailment of the nefarious scheme known as ballot harvesting as, “voter suppression.” Election integrity is not on the left’s radar.

The Federalist’s Eric Eggers addresses the issue in this illuminating commentary,How Ballot-Harvesting Became The New Way To Steal An Election,” which reveals the widespread and deceptive practices associated with ballot harvesting.

Seeing Red AZ has exposed this shady practice and the troubling ramifications, eroding citizen confidence in election integrity since 2012. This is a sampling:

Oct. 19, 2016: 2016 Election rigged? Of course it’s rigged

March 10, 2016: AZ Gov. Ducey signs ballot harvesting / felony bill

Feb. 9, 2016: AZ GOP Chair Robert Graham’s ballot harvesting amnesia (now former chair)

Aug. 28, 2015: Alarming! 100%+ voter registration rates

Oct. 28, 2014: Democrats engage in voter fraud, ‘ballot harvesting’

Aug. 4, 2014: Ballot harvesting alive and well in AZ despite law

March 13, 2012:  Voter fraud? “We’re not the police


Dire cost of “taxing the rich” even more

February 8, 2020

AZ Educrats ramp up new $1 Billion money grab

It’s trendy today to speak in terms of taxing the rich, making them pay their fair share. The problem is, they already do and then some. There are profound problems with the socialist agenda that rides astride “redistribution of wealth,” confiscating from those who play by the rules, educate themselves, take risks, and work long hours, to achieve their goals. There is a price to be paid, and if you’re not willing to pay it yourself, you shouldn’t resent those who are, because without them there would be no innovation or advancement. They are not the enemy, they are who we should aspire to emulate.

But Socialists, exemplified by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, running as Democrats for their party’s presidential nomination, are populating congress in growing numbers. They don’t even try to disguise their radical Socialist bond, despite the fact that the United States spend two generations fighting against the destructive system. They are smugly righteous about raising taxes on the “ultra wealthy,” making them “pay their fair share,” though wealthiest Americans pay disproportionately higher rates. In 2016, the top 1 percent of taxpayers accounted for more income taxes paid than the bottom 90 percent combined.

Economist Thomas Sowell previously wrote, “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty. The communist nations were a classic example, but by no means the only example.

In theory, confiscating the wealth of the more successful people ought to make the rest of the society more prosperous. But when the Soviet Union confiscated the wealth of successful farmers, food became scarce. As many people died of starvation under Stalin in the 1930s as died in Hitler’s Holocaust in the 1940s.

How can that be? It is not complicated. You can only confiscate the wealth [and income] that exists at a given moment. You cannot confiscate future wealth [or income] — and that future wealth [and income] is less likely to be produced [or earned] when people see that it is going to be confiscated.”

Arizona #REDsforEd educrats, who work part-time jobs, abandoned approximately 840,000 students statewide for nearly two weeks in 2018, when they went out on strike for a 20% pay increase, which they unconscionably received, are re-energizing their previously failed ballot initiative Invest In Education Act. Of course, the leftist Hillary-endorsing newspaper supports the ongoing and continually expanding $millions in taxation written into the initiative as “an investment we need to make,” ignoring the continual school bond and tax override elections. The latest fraud is another $1 Billion.

This is where the “underpaid” teachers choose to put their money.


Adrian Fontes: Leftist MC Recorder invites Dems to vote

February 4, 2020

Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes is supposed to represent all of the voters in Arizona’s most populous county. That’s ALL, as in Republicans and Independents as well as the Democrats who boosted the problematic Fontes into office by a single percentage point. The initial elections he oversaw were unmitigated disasters, featuring widespread problems, long lines and infuriated voters, many of whom were turned away and advised to go to other polling places. Fontes blamed the chaos on “outside contractors” he hired to replace knowledgeable employees.

On the recorder’s website he claims, “We continue to provide the citizens of Maricopa County the finest service possible. To ensure that we stay on the leading edge in our field we continually make changes and we encourage your participation.” Fontes’ deception is mind boggling as he boasts of the pride he takes in the many awards and recognitions “we” have received and that “we are considered by many to be the premier recording office in the country.”

 In using the majestic plural known as the “royal we,” Fontes must occasionally dress in drag, since Helen Purcell was initially elected county recorder in 1989 and served nearly four decades, until 2017. The majority of those awards were presented before Fontes ever strolled into the office. Purcell, who knows a thing or two about the duties of overseeing elections, has endorsed eminently qualified Republican Stephen Richer.

Far from an impartial overseer of elections, Fontes recently ran an ad in the local newspaper which most of our readers would miss due to the fact that so few Arizonans continue to subscribe. The ad, which contemptibly oozes blatant partisanship, features a cartoon “ballot” (His cap identifies him as such) wearing glasses, a grin and waving jovially. The bright yellow capitalized words slickly say, “HEY VOTERS! I’m Phil the Ballot (get it?). Did you know only registered Democrats can vote in the Democratic Presidential Preference Election on March 17th?  Let’s meet up at BEBallotREADY.vote.” The tag line is, “brought to you by” …featuring official replicas of the seals of the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office and Maricopa County, followed by a phone number promising “voice info,” in Spanish and English. Callers are provided detailed instructions regarding how to register to vote in the Democrat primary election.

Arizona is among several states that have cancelled their GOP presidential primaries or caucuses, since incumbent President Donald Trump has no viable challengers. The plan was initiated by the state parties, as has been the case in both parties when an incumbent president is running for reelection.

The actions are not unprecedented. As examples, Arizona Democrats skipped the  presidential primary in 2012, when Barack Obama was running for a second term They did the same in 1996 when Bill Clinton was running for reelection.

The question to ask is, “Would leftward skewed partisan Adrian Fontes run ads inviting Republicans to vote in the presidential primary if the circumstances were reversed?”  We’d bet the farm that day would never come. His sole concern is registering Democrats.


Chandler Unified School Dist. defends radical educrat

January 30, 2020

Public school district emblematic of why charter schools are top rated

This report is so outrageous, it made national news with Breitbart News carrying the details,Arizona High School Teacher Accused of Associating Conservative Values with ‘Fascism

Radical left-wing indoctrination is alive and well in our taxpayer funded public schools.

A history teacher at Casteel High School in Queen Creek, Arizona, has been accused by students and parents of equating conservative values with fascism during a recent history class.

The unnamed female teacher emerges unscathed by the deceit and unconscionable historical revisionism she perpetrated by comparing Hitler to the modern-day Republican party.

The high school, which graduated its first class in 2019, allows this dishonest indoctrination to be propagandized to its students. Principal Jayson Phillips shows himself to be a weak administrator, giving a pass to the educrat.

U.S. News and World Report published its yearly list of top schools across the nation. Once again Arizona Charter Schools topped the list earning the Top Ten slots.

Arizona #REDSforEd public school teachers abandoned over 840,000 students statewide for nearly two weeks while following socialist Noah Karvelis, a 24-year-old unaccredited hip hop music teacher, as they went on strike in violation of their contractual agreements, demanding a 20% pay hike for their part-time jobs. They are now supporting a “tax the rich” socialist ballot scheme to receive ever more money for spewing radical indoctrination.

An important reminder: This is where the supposedly underpaid teachers choose to put their union dues money.* Be sure to scroll down to the ‘Party Split’ graph. 

Then take a moment to tune in to their longstanding agenda (brief video) clearly articulated as far back as 2009, that unequivocally spells out the views of the National Education Association regarding the children they are charged with educating. The words are spoken by Bob Chanin, the NEA legal counsel in a brief excerpt from his revealing retirement speech.

AZ Dems videotaped teaching illegal aliens how to vote

January 29, 2020

Arizona in Democrats’ crosshairs. Republicans must vote smart

The Lid runs a shocking article complete with video substantiation, showing what is taking place in Arizona as AZ Blue 2020 attempts to skew the upcoming election. 

America as we know it, is clearly at a crossroads. Socialists have taken over the Democrat party and will stop at nothing to retain control, even if it means giving illegal alien invaders the means of controlling their party.

Previously deep red Arizona is widely viewed as a “swing state,” which makes supporting President Donald Trump and our incumbent senator and congressional Republicans ever more important.

US Senate: Martha McSally

Congressional District U.S. Representatives:

CD 4: Paul Gosar

CD 5: Andy Biggs

CD 6: David Schweikert

CD 8:  Debbie Lesko

Sen. McSally, a former two-term member of congress, is being challenged by George Soros supported Mark Kelly, the husband of former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The duo are dedicated to curtailing our Second Amendment Rights through organizations they founded that are committed to gun confiscation.

Kelly and Giffords, close associates of Barack Obama, run the major gun control-focused group Giffords PAC, which between its hybrid PAC and 501(c)(4) nonprofit Giffords, spent nearly $7 million to aid Democrat congressional candidates in 2018.

 Sen. McSally, a retired Air Force fighter pilot and the first woman to lead a squadron in a war zone is a primary focus of the left. Giffords’ PAC has spent large sums opposing McSally. The spending will only intensify as the Dems grow ever more desperate to grab the seat. Socialist billionaire George Soros, hosting events funded by his far-left Act Blue, is all too willing to funnel money to Mark Kelly. The group (then called Americans for Responsible Solutions) spent more than $2 million supporting Democrat Ron Barber against McSally in 2014.

The Kelly/Giffords PAC focuses its efforts on Second Amendment supporting Republicans, removing Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO.) with $2 million in opposition spending and Rep. John Culberson (R-TX) with a $1.2 million ad buy. Money talks. Each of Giffords’ top four opposed candidates lost their election in 2018.

In addition to making independent expenditures, Mark Kelly and Giffords hybrid PAC contributed $263,965* to federal Democrat candidates, during the 2018 midterms. The Kelly/Giffords organization has a major lobbying presence, spending $430,000* in 2018, specially lobbying for gun control legislation. 

Daniel McCarthy, an abysmally ill-prepared political wanna-be, (must watch video) is challenging Sen. Martha McSally, who is unequivocally endorsed by President Donald Trump. Your vote matters…now more than ever.

AZ supports Pres. Trump, despite biased newspaper report

January 27, 2020

The Daily Insult, known as the Arizona Republic in a previous incarnation, barely clings to life, with a sports section that is heftier than the news portion in actual content — excluding hearing aid and erectile dysfunction ads aimed at its remaining aged subscribers. The virtually non-existent Monday edition was introduced in 2008 by saying it was customized for readers on the busiest day of the week. The price has continued to increase as the newspaper has withered.

An informative report is Peter Cohan‘s,Reasons Why Gannett Stock Has Yet To Find A Bottom,” which appeared in Forbes.

SRAZ has frequently written about the emaciated local newspaper, the open borders, Hillary-endorsing, Periódico de la República de Arizona which has shrunken in physical size, staff and content, and is now reliant on ASU student interns and purchased content.

Sunday’s edition ran a lengthy “Viewpoints” piece titled, “How did Arizona become purple?” written by the man who has been committed to pouring blue dye on red Arizona, which is the sole reason the newspaper elevated him to guest columnist status. Once the executive director of the Arizona Republican Party, he is now a full-fledged turncoat registered as PND, Party Not Declared. He also changed the toxic name (his) of his company to one suggesting dignity.

In 2016 Arizona gave all 11 of its electoral votes to Donald Trump. As much as it rankles those still running the newspaper, he remains immensely popular, drawing massive crowds to his appearances — here and nationwide. Leftists are working double time to impeach him, but the American people, who have benefited from his policies, see through the charade. 

The Washington Examiner lists President Donald Trump’s 319 ‘results’ and promises kept in three years. The list follows an excellent report.
