Rodney Glassman: Perpetually losing candidate thanks & threatens

August 8, 2022

Rodney Glassman patterns himself after the Energizer Bunny, with one significant difference. The bunny symbolizes an entity that functions. Glassman, a lifelong democrat who has run for every conceivable office and repeatedly lost, conveniently morphed into a Republican and continues to lose, since GOP voters are onto his deceit. Following this linked post are numerous exposés of the flagrantly deceptive Glassman, who has previously been the darling of pro-abortion Planned Parenthood and endorsed by the radical leftist UFCW union.

In an outlandish attempt to ready himself for yet another foray into political office, losing Glassman has insultingly sent out mass emails absurdly headlined, “Thank You, Arizona,” and received by conservatives who haven’t, won’t and never have supported this shoddily cloaked liberal opportunist.

Dear    ,

I want to personally thank you for your support of my campaign. Over nearly a year, we have grown one of the strongest Attorney General campaigns in Arizona history, with support from every corner of our great state. None of this would have been possible without your continued support.

While the results were not what we hoped for, I am thankful for every vote that we received in the primary election.

I congratulate our Republican nominees and wish them success in November as they work to ensure we don’t lose our state to the radical left.

Again, thank you for your support and your vote in this campaign. The best is yet to come.

Your friend,

Rodney Glassman

This brief response would be an appropriate reply:

Rodney:

Do not assume we are your friend, ever supported or voted for you.  We aren’t, didn’t, haven’t previously and won’t in the future. You are a political opportunist with abundant family wealth to allow you to live lavishly in the Biltmore Estates and continually run for public office, repeatedly losing. You claim, “the best is yet to come.”  Your repeated defeats fulfill that threat.

Do us a favor and return to the democrat party, stop insulting us with your fake claims of conservatism when you accepted Planned Parenthood endorsements and were a willing leftist union pawn who cut your political teeth working for liberal democrat U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva — a job secured for you by your dem donor dad. 

Not your friend,

AZ Conservative Republicans


AZ newspaper foolishly hammers use of inmate labor

August 5, 2022

A felony is committed. With diligent police work, the perpetrator is located and arrested. Next, evidence is presented as the defendant is tried, found guilty and sentenced to prison time.  It‘s an unfortunate scenario, repeated with increasing regularity across the United States, as leftist elected DA’s have implemented catch and release policies, if they impose any penalties at all. Law Enforcement Today acknowledges the steep rise in crime in 2022 as police departments are defunded.

Arizona’s dying leftist newspaper has printed a weeklong series of articles bemoaning the fact that incarcerated prisoners are being “exploited” as outside laborers. Presumably the lunatics/editors running the asylum/newspaper would prefer the inmates stay in their cells around the clock. The reports focus on the inmates doing manual labor rather than office work and instead of building their resumes, as they provide labor to cities and towns, which the four reporters who collaborated on a recent report, view as allowing towns to “live beyond their means” since the criminals are paid low wages. Taxpayers provide inmates lodging, food, clothing, soap, shampoo, toothpaste and the system the newspaper berates allows them to be out of the prison complex, where juries sent them for crimes they inflicted on innocent citizens. A stand-alone blurb states, “Using cheap prison labor keep maintenance costs low in this Cochise County city of 3,213. But what about the inmates’ needs?”

Seriously!

The inmates lost their right to freedom when they chose to engage in lives of crime. The likelihood of these criminals desiring to stay in their cells is remote. Reporters Joseph Darius Jaafari, Jimmy Jenkins, Justin Price and Geoff Hing earn their salaries writing drivel. 

But it doesn’t stop there. The newspaper is actually recruiting people who have been incarcerated to relate their “experiences and opinions” for future exposés. SRAZ has chosen to omit the absurd link. Instead we direct our readers to the far more reputable New York Post‘s report by Isabel Vincent, “How George Soros funded progressive ‘legal arsonist’ DAs behind US crime surge.“ It reveals the funding the multi-billionaire socialist has been infusing into undermining prosecutor’s and law enforcement agencies throughout the nation for years. We urge you to read it. Knowledge is power.


Election losses, wins, front and center amid AZ’s primary election news & UPDATES

August 3, 2022

LATEST UPDATE as of August 5: President Trump’s influence solidifies AZ Governor’s race as Kari Lake beats Karrin Taylor Robson by 2.8% points

With few exceptions, good news resounds in the aftermath of Tuesday’s election. Arizona’s Republican incumbent members of congress — Biggs, Gosar, Lesko and Schweikert — remain popular and as of 10:00 p.m. last night, enough President Trump supporters broke ranks to give Karrin Taylor Robson a 7-point edge over Republicrat contortionist Kari Lake, in the Arizona governor’s race. Lake morphed into a Republican after leaving the party twice before taking a circuitous path of endorsing and supporting Obama — in her initial foray into public office. Trump-endorsed Mark Finchem, a former state legislator, sailed to a smooth primary victory in the race for Secretary of State. This under-the-radar office is next in line of succession to the governor, since Arizona does not have a lieutenant governor.

AZ House Speaker and sculptor, Rusty Bowers, who theatrically testified against Pres. Trump during congress’ recent January 6 hearing, got the drubbing he deserved and will now have ample opportunity to whine as he chisels marble, since his days at the state legislature are not only termed out, they are over. The Arizona GOP executive committee censured Bowers and called on Republican voters to “replace him in the ballot box,” which they did.

Attorney General Mark Brnovich will get to enjoy his retirement instead of spending time in humid or snowy Washington D.C. as a senator.  

Exceptionally well qualified Andy Gould, with prosecutorial and judicial credentials, running for Arizona Attorney General lost to marginal Abe Hamadeh, lacking relevant legal experience while touting his military service. Though commendable, it is not a qualification for being attorney general.

Kimberly Yee, Arizona’s incumbent state treasurer with credentials galore, easily beat back two primary challengers.

Interim Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell, a career prosecutor and chief deputy won the primary bringing the office back on an even keel after unfortunate events surrounding her predecessor. Mitchell previously gained national recognition serving as Investigative Counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee during the unprecedented and disgraceful 2018 democrat-led confirmation hearings of Brett Kavanaugh for Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

UPDATES:

Joe Arpaio, Maricopa County Sheriff for an unparalleled 6-four-year terms, is a longtime resident of Fountain Hills. He has challenged incumbent Mayor Ginny Dickey.  As of 8:42 AM ET Aug. 4, 2022, the race remains neck-in-neck, separated by 5 points.

Arizona’s general election is Nov. 8, 2022.

Rasmussen AZ GOP 2022 primary survey: Trump-backed candidates lead

August 2, 2022

This poll showing the results of a survey of Republican primary voters was released Friday, July 29, 2022. 

Today is Election Day.  If you haven’t voted early this is your last chance to have your voice heard. 

This Aug. 2, survey, “Biden vs. Trump: Guess Who Wins Rematch?” reflects the unsurprising national voter dissatisfaction with Joe Biden.

Gallup’s survey is even more brutal, as left-leaning MSN headlined, “Joe Biden’s approval rating lowest for any modern president, Gallup poll finds.”


Cloutless newspaper toils in vain to influence votes

July 27, 2022

Arizona voters are gearing up for the Aug. 2, 2022 Primary Election, whether voting early or on Election Day. Pertinent information can be found here. Exercising our rights is an integral part of American freedom. So too, is freedom of the press, enshrined by congress in our First Amendment. The fact is, hard copy news has gone the way of the buggy whip as Associated Press recently admitted. The local newspaper, shriveling in size and filled with disreputable content, remarkably relinquished its reins on pre-election endorsements after infuriated subscribers cancelled in the wake of its Hillary Clinton endorsement. In the aftermath, the Arizona Republic whined that it received death threats following that ill-conceived position. The daily’s more recent tactic is to create an echo chamber of anti-conservatism generally, and anti-Trumpism, specifically, as a reliable arm of the democrat party. Journalists left long ago, replaced by Cronkite J school students and reporters who fit these constricted parameters. As examples, the newspaper that brags about hiring based on ethnicity and gender — they call it diversity and inclusion — has a employee who specializes in “people experiencing homelessness” and another who is unable to type the words “illegal alien,” repeatedly using the word “migrant,“ to describe America’s invaders. The brassiest new tactic is coddling incarcerated criminals while ravaging the Arizona prison system.

The upcoming primary and general elections present unique challenges, since Trump-hatred is so virulent, Trump endorsed candidates become pariahs. With staff dwindling, the two remaining columnists who previously specialized in sap have taken on the mantle of hate-mongers and deceit spewers. A recent pro-abortion column by emaciated leftist E.J. Montini was headlined, “GOP’s goal is complete subjugation of women,” which is not only insulting, it’s untrue. Laurie Roberts whose specialty was exposing the plight of children in tenuous situations, has joined Montini in disparaging Republicans while glorifying democrats — advising the remaining readers not to believe the polls if they don’t align with her leftwing wishful thinking. She conveniently forgets it was Republican governors who appointed her Republican sister Ann Timmer to the Court of Appeals and then as a justice on the Arizona Supreme Court. 

Facts are of no consequence. “It’s the agenda stupid.*

*Bill Clinton’s strategist James Carville coined the phrase, “It’s the economy, stupid,” during the 1992 presidential campaign.


Trump, Pence duke it out on AZ Guv’s race

July 23, 2022

Status of endorsers outranks candidates

Former President Donald Trump and his former Vice President Mike Pence have staked out Arizona’s Republican governor’s primary election as a battleground both for their own chosen candidates but with more than a whiff of personal competitiveness in the air. They are both considered 2024 presidential candidates.

On Friday evening Trump spoke in Prescott Valley supporting former newscaster Kari Lake as Pence addressed a crowd in Peoria, AZ declaring, “No one worked harder for the Trump/Pence ticket in 2016 and 2020 than Karrin Taylor Robson,” as he highlighted her fundraising for the GOP ticket.

There’s as much at stake for the endorsers as the candidates as Pence hopes to score another win against Trump in the endorsement category. In an unexpected 2022 drubbing, Pence supported Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, who made quick work (73.7% – 21.8%) of Trump-supported challenger, former Sen. David Perdue in the May 24, 2022 primary.

Lake, a former Obama donor and supporter, who twice left the Republican Party to become a democrat, has magically morphed into a conservative in time to run for governor, a job for which she has neither background nor capabilities. Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson characterizes herself as a political outsider, though her family is enmeshed in Arizona politics.  Former Congressman Matt Salmon recently dropped out of the race.

Pence and Taylor Robson also visited the National Border Patrol Council’s office in Tucson. The Border Patrol union has previously supported Trump. Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council has endorsed Taylor Robson in the governor’s race.


AZ Republic leftists seize on death as a midterm lifeline

July 21, 2022

No lie is too flagrant to tell

The failing local newspaper’s front page headline blasts, “Debunked claims on abortion promoted.” In a rational world, there would be a lot to debate about that dishonest statement presented as fact.  We do not live in such a world, rather one where extremist adults believe it is a right to kill innocent pre-born humans.

This time there’s an intriguing component to the matter. An Arizona legislator speaking out against abortion doesn’t fall into the expected category. Walt Blackman is a black man — with the distinction of being the first black Republican ever elected to the Arizona Legislature. He is also pro-life and vocal about his views. Not only that, but he knows history. Rep. Blackman served in the United States Army for 21 years as a front line tank commander. Among other distinctions, he was awarded a Bronze Star for combat action in Iraq, and a Meritorious Service Medal.

Rep. Blackman’s knowledge of history is crucial in this context. The newspaper is brutalizing him for taking on Margaret Sanger, the Planned Parenthood founder who was instrumental in not only bringing abortion centers to the impoverished neighborhoods in New York City, she targeted poor immigrant families and blacks, all of whom Sanger referred to as “human weeds.” The leftists who still work at the dying Arizona Republic are unable to face that fact.

Instead Rep. Walt Blackman, a self-identified constitutional conservative who represents Legislative District 6, is brutalized for not walking in lockstep with the pro-abortion newspaper for the unforgivable sin of telling the truth.

Seeing Red AZ is not a newcomer to the pro-life movement as this sampling of revealing posts illustrate:

April 1, 2015: Ted Cruz is no Barry Goldwater — Thank God! (Describing so-called “Mr. Conservative” Barry Goldwater, supporting an AZ Congressional democrat candidate over a pro-life conservative. She won with his endorsement.)

Jan. 21, 2019: Dems OK barbaric infanticide, Republicans vote for life

July 27, 2020: Planned Parenthood endorsed “conservative” Rodney Glassman

June 26, 2022: Businesses fund abortion related expenses…vote with your feet

This video is not new, but its message remains relevant — substantiating Rep. Blackman’s statements:


AZ Republic obscures election facts to create false message

July 19, 2022

Arizona’s local newspaper is on the skids, as are others nationwide. Associated Press admitted that fact recently. Still nothing dissuades the Hillary-endorsing local disseminator of leftwingism from getting its message out…even when patently false.

Today’s edition is illustrative of the fakery fitting the agenda taking precedence over fact.  Headlined above-the-fold is this gem: “Female first time candidates still face challenges.” Reporter Tara Kavaler relies on the old “glass ceiling” metaphor in an effort to give substance to her false narrative.

She’s obviously never heard of energetic and respected democrat Polly Rosenbaum who was Arizona’s longest-serving state legislator, representing Gila County in the House of Representatives for 46 years, defeated in an anti-incumbency thrust at age 95. 

Arizona also has the distinction of electing what became known as the “Fab Five,” all women elected to the state’s highest offices in 1998: Jane Dee Hull was elected governor, Betsey Bayless was elected Secretary Of State, Janet Napolitano was elected Attorney General, Carol Springer was elected state Treasurer, and Lisa Graham-Keegan was elected Superintendent of Public Instruction. All were Republicans except for Napolitano. They remain the greatest number of women to serve in any state’s highest elected offices simultaneously. Republican Kimberly Yee, a former state senator, is currently Arizona’s state treasurer, keeping Arizona’s economy solvent during the pandemic pandemonium and the faltering Biden administration, with the worst inflation many of us have ever endured. 

Lorna Lockwood, born pre-statehood in 1903, became a lawyer, Superior Court judge and the first female justice on the Arizona Supreme Court, holding that distinction nationally. President Ronald Reagan nominated Arizonan Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman to serve as a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Arizona’s legislature has had women serving in the state House and Senate since 1914, two years after statehood. Tara Kavaler, an Arizona transplant, needs to take a remedial course in Arizona history. Writing sans information makes everything else she writes worthy of suspicion.


Fmr. McCain aide Max Fose likens leftist Sen. Mark Kelly to McCain

July 18, 2022

Finally…the left got something right

Seeing Red AZ has never attempted to conceal its abhorrence of former Sen. John McCain, whose political duplicity was renowned. His last official vote — which Speaker Mitch McConnell held up to allow the then-ailing McCain to cast the deciding vote — was a stunning case in point, as McCain voted with the united democrats — much to the mystified dismay of his GOP colleagues — on what was known as the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare. Watch the 19-second video here:

https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2017/07/28/19-seconds-mccain-vote-nr.cnn

Attempting to explain his political treachery in heading up Republicans for Kelly, supporting the deceptive Mark Kelly, McCain-connected Max Fose answered the question with a now trendy, tricky response that attempts to make the questioned person agree, by ending the question with “right?” “You don’t see Mark Kelly throwing bombs across the aisle, right?”

Wrong.

Soros-funded Kelly is duplicity run amok. His strong financial ties to Communist Chinese tech giant Tencent are a driving force of the commercial space exploration venture he co-founded. Tencent, is one of the world’s largest internet enterprises and owns the Chinese social media platform WeChat. The text platform has more than a billion users and is suspected of monitoring the activity of many of them inside and outside of China, as detailed in this 2020 Real Clear Politics report. The Washington Free Beacon exposes Kelly’s early and lucrative ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

Married to former AZ congresswoman Gabby Giffords, who is Jewish,  Mark Kelly gleefully poses with anti-Semite U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). Omar has stated her belief that America should be dismantled, opining it is “based in a system of oppression.” She believes Israel has no right to exist.

Mark Kelly should not represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate. Seeing Red AZ endorses Jim Lamon, a successful businessman and job creator, who prioritizes addressing the border crisis. Jim Lamon’s list of conservative elected officials, activists and law enforcement endorsements is impressive. These are the boots-on-the-ground men and women who understand the need for retaking control of our border that has been a haven for illegals and criminal activity. Kelly, an anti-Second Amendment gun confiscator, is unfazed by the widespread criminality.

The Washington Times reported DHS encountered a record 2 million illegal aliens on our southern border in 2021 alone.
