AZ GOP chair Robert Graham maneuvers for top RNC post

November 17, 2016

Like his mentor John McCain, Robert Graham stumbles over who the Republican nominee actually is, saying “in charge of the transition for Obama…I mean…Mr. Trump.”  (video 1:17)

You’ll recall John McCain confused Mitt Romney with Barack Obama during his endorsement speech for Mitt Romney.

When Arizona’s U.S. Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake refused to support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump against radical leftist Democrat Hillary Clinton in the national primary election, Robert Graham went mute. He didn’t open his mouth when longstanding elected Republican precinct committeemen were systematically purged from their ranks and replaced with McCain sycophants, whose sole purpose is to vote for the McRINO officer slates at key state and county meetings.

SRAZ has written numerous articles about Robert Graham and his establishment ties. Here are just a few:

Dem mayors defiantly protect sanctuary cities

November 16, 2016

Democrat mayors are primed to challenge Republican President-elect Donald Trump over sanctuary cities, which provide safe havens for illegal foreign nationals. As an example, Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel — a onetime chief-of-staff to Barack Obama —–  states his unequivocal support for illegal aliens, (25-second video) “clearly” preferring them to providing safety to the legal citizens of Chicago. Mayor Emanuel, who presides over a city with body bag statistics rivaling many war zones, declares, “ Let’s be clear about what Chicago is. It always will be a sanctuary city. You are safe in Chicago. You are secure in Chicago. You are supported in Chicago.”

Center for Immigration Studies provides a fact-filled reportSanctuary Cities Continue to Obstruct Enforcement, Threaten Public Safety by Jessica Vaughan. Brazenly reaffirming their sanctuary city status immediately after the Nov. 8 election are the mayors of Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle.  They are part of a network of cities, counties, and states that have laws, ordinances, regulations, resolutions, policies, or other practices that obstruct immigration enforcement and shield criminals from ICE. Arizona has at least five such cities. Scroll down link for the list.

In 2009, then Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon defended the city’s sanctuary city policy. Current Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, a liberal and connected Democrat, has pushed for ID cards for illegals, but stays clear of addressing the city’s policy of providing sanctuary.  Stanton intends to run for Secretary of State, which has often been the direct route to the governor’s 9th floor office.

Phoenix citizens trying to directly contact Stanton’s office find it requires sending an email with a warning that the contents are subject to disclosure under the Public Records Law.

Donald Trump made the illegal invasion a focal point of his presidential campaign — an issue that accounted in large part for his victory.

After being elected  to an unprecedented six four-year terms, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio fell victim to the millions in cash infusions open borders, multi-billionaire George Soros generously gave to Democrat candidate Paul Penzone. Arpaio was also battered incessantly by the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) which is zealously pro-amnesty for illegals aliens. In addition to being vilified by the left and the federal courts for enforcing the law — which is what made him so popular with the citizens of Maricopa County.

Along the way, the career lawman gained national recognition and is often interviewed on network and cable television news. He’s traveled with Republican President-elect Donald Trump and introduced him at rallies in Arizona and across the country.  Joe Arpaio and Donald Trump have both put the massive problem of the illegal invasion front and center. As president, Trump should withhold federal funding to any jurisdiction that refuses to cooperate with ICE or other law enforcement agencies.


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’s victory exposes McCain, Flake’s hypocrisy

November 13, 2016

In the weeks preceding the Nov. 8 election, Arizona’s two pretentious Republicrat senators John McCain and Jeff Flake went to great lengths denigrating Donald Trump — they each made a grand show of saying they would not vote for him.  McCain’s statement can be read here.  One of Jeff Flake’s many public declarations on the subject is here.

Now Trump is the president-elect, and the duplicitous duo are vying to be the one to plant the most kisses on his posterior. These two hypocrites would do well to remember that the symbol of the Republican Party is the elephant — noted for it’s excellent memory. Since both McCain and Flake are unreliable squish Republicrats, we should never forget that they each voted against Trump.  Regardless of how you slice it, those were votes for Hillary Clinton — who is as much a bottom dragger in the areas of honesty and trustworthiness as these two goons are. The Daily Caller noted that John McCain’s abysmal 30 percent approval rating was topped only by Jeff Flake, whose approval rating has fallen to 27 percent!

McCain’s change of heart tweet:

“Congrats to President-Elect Donald Trump. As Chairman of the Armed Service Committee, I’ll work to confront national security challenges and support troops.”

The words McCain publicly used to describe his own wife were far worse than what  he claimed was so offensive.

Jeff the Flake was also quick to lavish praise:

 “Congrats to President-Elect Trump on a big win and a gracious and healing speech. I look forward to working with him. Now, back to eating crow.”

Flake’s son Tanner used far more offensive language, denigrating any and all on his Facebook postings. Tanner never had to acknowledge his despicable behavior and apologize.  Daddy apologized for him.

Hypocrisy is the name of the game with these two fraudulent Republicans. Trust them at your own peril.

Phx Councilman DiCiccio voting for Soros funded Penzone

November 6, 2016

If you’re a Republican or Independent residing in District 6 who still has an unmarked ballot you’re planning  to take to your polling place on Election Day Tuesday Nov. 8, this news is not too late for you.  Unfortunately, many others have been conned by Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio, who at the eleventh hour has publicly revealed himself as a Paul Penzone voter.

This is the same rough ’er up Paul Penzone —  a  Democrat former Phoenix Police Sergeant who was put on administrative leave after a domestic violence incident that included the issuance of an order of protection against him by his then-estranged wife.  Under the order, Penzone was unable to possess firearms — making it difficult to carry out his duties as a police officer. Now he wants to be elected as Maricopa County Sheriff in his second challenge to Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

This is the same Paul Penzone who is now accepting tainted, strings-attached $millions in campaign funds from radically left-wing globalist George Soros.  Multibillionaire Soros, who abhors national borders, is currently focusing on electing lenient prosecutors and law enforcement officials across the U.S. In addition to funding Penzone, Soros is also a longtime political benefactor of Hillary Clinton and John McCain.

Politico reports on America-hating, anti capitalist George Soros’ quiet efforts to overhaul the U.S. justice system. Here in Maricopa County he is also targeting County Attorney Bill Montgomery, looking to replace him with committed leftist Diego Rodriguez.

Although the Phoenix City Council and Mayor deviously run as “non-partisans,” voters who pay attention know their political bents. Sal DiCiccio has even scored points wagging his GOP credentials, which makes his treachery even more abhorrent.

In this recent article in the Ahwatukee Foothills News, DiCiccio — whose district encompasses Ahwatukee — ripped Sheriff Joe Arpaio in an interview, but stopped short of encouraging support for Arpaio’s opponent, Democrat Paul Penzone, since he would then risk being sanctioned by the Republican Party.

“But I can tell you that nobody in my family is voting for Joe, and that’s really, really hard because I like him personally and I like many of his policies,” DiCiccio claimed.

With friends like Sal DiCiccio, who needs enemies?

This is the same Sal DiCiccio who refers to liberal Tempe Mayor and single-term Democrat Congressman Harry Mitchell as his early mentor. DiCiccio cut his political fangs working in John McCain’s office. Yes, the same McCain who also wants our vote, after withdrawing his support from GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Slipperiness abounds. In Jan. 2010 the Arizona Republic reviewing conflict of interest dealings along a proposed freeway route wrote that it “took a closer look at DiCiccio’s possible stake in the planned 22-mile freeway, examining city financial forms and court records, plus letters, e-mails and other documents obtained under a public-records request. The picture that emerged shows that DiCiccio:” full report here

Seeing Red AZ stands with Republican career law enforcement professional, Sheriff Joe Arpaiowho does the job Maricopa County citizens elected him to do over six consecutive terms. He speaks plainly and speaks the truth. It’s not difficult to understand. 


Local fish wrap: Home of cutups and jesters?

Fishy_Arizona_Republic

Although it was obviously not the intention of Dan Nowicki — McCain’s sycophantic assigned reporter at the Arizona Republic — his coverage of Mitt Romney’s visit to the East Valley to spread the McCain gospel to his fellow church members was nothing short of hilarious.

Nowicki writes that the “small crowd” which he generously estimated at 150 who showed up at the Chicago Cubs spring-training stadium was “no doubt depressed by the heavy rain, bitter wind and dangerous driving conditions.” Weather, not nearly as ominous as described, is a convenient excuse. Romney has never been able to turn out an Arizona crowd, regardless of the climate conditions, even in Mesa, where he should have cachet.

Romney spoke for all of ten minutes extolling McCain’s experience on the world stage and in the senate as a “bipartisan leader.” For conservative Republicans, who know the self identified “maverick” all too well, that translates as a turncoat colluder with the left.

Our post referencing Romney’s visit was much funnier, reminding our readers that brain-dead McCain couldn’t even remember who Romney is.  Watch this priceless 2012 campaign video as John McCain actually confuses then-presidential candidate Mitt Romney with Barack Obama. Then remind yourself McCain was four years younger then. The deterioration hasn’t improved with the passage of time.
