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?”


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.

Biden’s $740 Billion “Inflation Reduction Act” exposed as massive tax on all Americans

August 4, 2022

Preston Brashers, a senior policy analyst for tax policy in The Heritage Foundation’s Grover M. Hermann Center for the Federal Budget, exposes the farce which includes significant climate change, health care, and tax policy reforms, known as the “Inflation Reduction Act.”  This crucial information is accompanied by explanatory graphs. The fact-filled report is titled, “Manchin-Schumer Taxes Would Hit Both Rich and Poor Americans.”

We are getting screwed at every turn. Too many Americans foolishly believed Sen. Joe Manchin, (D-WV), was a “moderate” democrat. There is no such thing.  There are only pretenders, whose fundamental mission is deception. Arizona democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who often partners with Manchin, has been uncharacteristically silent.

Included in the fraudulently named “Inflation Reduction Act“ is $64 billion to shore up Barack Obama’s not-so-affordable, “Affordable Care Act,” for three more years. Then what?

Biden contracts COVID-19: immediately “cured,“ now reinfected

July 31, 2022

Following protocols provided no long-term protection

In a concerted effort to keep the frail and elderly Joe Biden from appearing frail and elderly, it was imperative his team claim he was cured immediately when he recently contracted COVID-19, underscoring his supposed vitality and vigor. 

That pretense is bolstered by Biden’s chief farcecian, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, D.O., who wrote Biden “has experienced no reemergence of symptoms, and continues to feel quite well,” in this letter addressed to White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre — not the American people, who pay his salary. 

Fully vaccinated Biden received two doses of the Pfizer vaccine just prior to taking office, followed by two booster shots. He should be resistant to the bubonic plague.

If Biden, 79, has “no reemergence of symptoms” and “tests negative,” why has he been declared reinfected? 

We have no opportunity to ask Dr. O’Connor that simple question. And spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre has to hunt for her talking points, which assures us of getting either a vacuous, vague or no answer on any topic.

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:

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?”


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.

Kari Lake’s pal Merrick Garland sues AZ over citizenship voting requirement

July 8, 2022

The Department of Justice’s mission statement is clearly defined on Page One of its website: “The mission of the Department of Justice (DOJ) is to uphold the rule of law, to keep our country safe, and to protect civil rights.” Its organizational chart is impressive…until you realize who heads the department, by scrolling down the page to his signature. It’s none other than Merrick Garland, currently Joe Biden’s U.S. Attorney General, who is intent on restricting Arizona from requiring evidence of citizenship to vote as codified in House Bill 2492, rational legislation, which was passed by the state legislature and signed into law by Gov. Ducey in March.

Radical leftist Garland was the man his supporter gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake referred to as “a moderate,” when then-President Obama — who was the beneficiary of Kari L. Halperin’s (Lake’s married name) generous campaign donations — was trying to shuffle Garland onto the U.S. Supreme Court in the waning hours of his presidency. Lake was a democrat after abandoning the Republican Party twice. Aside from her oversized ego, Kari Lake has nothing to recommend her for the complexities of managing state government.

Despite Lake’s efforts, Garland was not appointed and President Donald Trump successfully nominated three conservative justices to the high court, a distinguished presidential legacy. In a disreputable response, Biden’s handlers have threatened “packing” the Supreme Court, by expanding the number of justices on the Supreme Court, to blunt Trump’s effectiveness. Even Franklin Roosevelt, the only three-term president, couldn’t get away with this political thuggery.

Kari Lake, a former local network newsreader, is now running for Arizona governor as a presto-change-o Republican! She has President Trump’s photo abutting hers on her roadway campaign signs. Someone needs to publicly question this self-absorbed charlatan about her ties to Barack Obama and radical leftist Merrick Garland, who sued the state of Texas over a pro-life law. Early ballots are already arriving in the mail. Fake Lake has questions to answer. To all conservatives reading this, Kari Lake has offered ample proof she is not deserving of your vote.

Karrin Taylor Robson‘s impressive list of endorsements can be read on her campaign website. Seeing Red AZ has not previously endorsed in this race, but the stakes are too high to turn our state over to a self-impressed, credentialess wanna-be who has routinely supported democrats.

As college costs surge, UofA gifts free degrees to 22 “tribes”

July 1, 2022

Want that “as nearly free as possible” AZ university education promised in  Article 11, Sec. 6 of our state Constitution?  According to this April 14, 2022 edition of the University of Arizona’s Wildcat newspaper, the Arizona Board of Regents did what has become routine, and hiked the rates at all three universities: ASU, UA and NAU. They attempt to confound us with fancy terminology such as “collaborations of key partnerships,” but don’t be conned by the deceitful educrat doublespeak.

Now we find that the University of Arizona is gifting free college tuition to members of 22 Indian tribes, now referred to as “Native Americans,“ a title not accorded to other Americans with generational roots on American soil.

Some questions?  What constitutes a “tribe“? What percentage of tribal DNA qualifies a claimant?  If your heritage includes multiple tribes, can you continue accumulating free degrees?

Why would this sweet financial deal be limited to Ak-Chin, Cocopah, Yavapai, Mohave, Hopi, Apache, Tohono O’odham (who changed their name from Papago), Gila River, Salt River Pima-Maricopa etc.? There are 17 federally recognized tribes completely within the borders of Arizona and others that overlap our border. Nearly one-quarter of land in Arizona is reservation land. Currently, there are twenty-six tribal owned lucrative casinos located across ten counties of the state. Cannabis is advertised and sold at the casinos.

Why are members of Africa’s estimated 3,000 tribes excluded from this ridiculous freebie? Jewish Americans are descended from the Biblical 12 Tribes of Israel, detailed in Deuteronomy 27: 12–13. Are those tribes worthy? No…nor should they be.

Dropping free money on selected groups is never a good idea. The Regents, none of whom are needy, should know that.

AP report: Hard-copy newspapers dying at breakneck speed

June 30, 2022

SRAZ has frequently weighed in on Arizona’s blatantly leftist, Hilary-endorsing newspaper, verifying that it is barely hanging on to its radical perch. It is certainly suffering through some hard times, though mostly due to its stubborn bonding to a hard-left, open borders perspective and foolish refusal to stop insulting its remaining readers, most of whom are senior citizens.

On Wednesday, Associated Press substantiated our findings on a national scale. The diminishing numbers are shocking. David Bauder’s report is headlined, “U.S. newspapers continuing to die at rate of 2 each week.”

This Dec. 30, 2021, post, AZ Republic reneges on subscribers third time since Sept.,” exposed the latest money saving scam, engaged in by the failing newspaper: Non-deliveries to paying subscribers. That’s known as theft, which is a prosecutable crime under the Arizona Criminal Code Title 13. Criminal Code § 13-1802.

Newspapers have been in decline for a very long time. The Phoenix Gazette, the afternoon edition for Arizonans who wanted the most recent news, bit the dust with the advent of televised news. Then the Internet, via cell phones, which could be conveniently carried, discretely vibrating when a new report is available, signaled the demise of home-delivered newspapers, which are vanishing and will be replaced by a fully online content, incurring no need for newsprint, ink and delivery.

Hard copy news is known as a newsosaur for a reason. The La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles are a monument to prehistoric creatures. They sell tickets for access.  Even free of charge a dead newsroom, reliant on student reporters lacking editors is nothing to see. 

Dem opportunist Rodney Glassman morphs into a “conservative”

June 23, 2022

Exposing the political fraud known as Rodney Glassman is crucial as he once again attempts to swindle voters by portraying himself as a conservative. Don’t be fooled. This has been an ongoing deceit that demands exposure. Know this…Glassman has not experienced a political epiphany. His “awakening” can best be described as opportunism.

It is imperative conservative voters not be conned by this charlatan. Rodney Glassman, who is now running for attorney general as a Republican has a track record that is steeped in leftism.

Seeing Red AZ has exposed Rodney Glassman on numerous occasions. Please take the time to reacquaint yourself with the fraudulent opportunist, who is unworthy of consideration as a Republican office holder. The leftist, who cut his political teeth working as a D.C. staffer for radical U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, desperately desires political office. He has run for many and lost all but one, a Tucson City Council seat, from which he resigned before finishing his first term years ago. As a democrat, he challenged John McCain in 2010, losing 34.7% to 58.9%. When he ran as a democrat, Glassman was the darling of nearly a dozen unions that funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to Glassman’s campaign.

Using an appalling lack of judgment in 2019, Glassman was exposed by the Phoenix New Times as “Raising Cash for Official Who Could Vote to Appoint Him Assessor.”

Being armed with information is crucial when dealing with slippery candidates, which Glassman exemplifies. Money is not a problem for Rodney, whose family inherited a Fresno-based agricultural seed and chemical company from his grandfather. He and his wife Sasha and their young family live in a $multi-million Biltmore Estates golf course mansion. His parents, Robert and Linda Glassman, are listed as co-owners of the nearly 11,000 square foot home that includes 8 garages. It was newly built in the established neighborhood in 2018 after they demolished the existing home they bought.

Yes. There’s a lot to read. But we’re up against the clock. Primary Election Day is Aug. 2, 2022. Early ballots will be sent to voters who requested them beginning July 6. Knowledge is power.

Seeing Red AZ endorses superbly well qualified, Constitutional Conservative Andrew Gould, for Attorney General.

Rasmussen: Staggering majority of Americans disapprove of Biden

June 18, 2022

VP Kamala Harris ditches border to concentrate on cyber bullying

Rasmussen rated high for factual reporting, reveals only 23 percent of likely U.S. voters believe the country is heading in the right direction. This number remained unchanged from the previous week, with Biden showing no improvement, as dissatisfaction with his abysmal programs, inability to rein in backbreaking inflation and lack of leadership grows. Fifty-seven percent (57%) of respondents disapprove of Joe Biden.

Real Clear Politics, a polling aggregator has even more dismal news for Biden. On the Economy, 61.5 % disapprove of the job he’s doing. On the Direction of the County, Biden rates even worse, with 68.6% stating he’s on the wrong track.

And appalling VP Kamala Harris?  Feeble Biden named her the border czar putting her in charge of the crisis at our southern border. But the invasion of our county is of no interest to her. Instead, this past week she launched a Cyber Bullying Board, stating, “This affects all of us if it affects any one of us.” She could have used those same words to describe the invasion of our nation.

Breitbart News headlined its fact-filled report, Analysis: 1.1 Million More Illegal Aliens in U.S. Since Biden Took Office.”  We urge our readers to take time to acquaint themselves with the facts that are of no interest to either Biden or Harris, but will irretrievably alter the nation we are leaving to our future generations.

Far-left Fauci’s COVID lunacy expands to mandating vax for infants, toddlers

June 16, 2022

Fauci delivers vile anti-Trump commencement address at City College of N.Y.

Americans were first introduced to pint-sized, overpaid,* unelected bureaucrat Anthony Fauci at the daily briefings at the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak. He is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and the Chief Medical Advisor to Joe Biden. Concern spiraled as daily fatalities from this scourge dominated the headlines and Fauci’s mandates forced Americans into masks, isolating us, irresponsibly closing schools and businesses causing economic havoc.

Now Biden, 79, has tested positive for COVID and is currently experiencing “mild symptoms.” Fauci, 81, quadrupled vaxxed, including two booster shots, which was supposed to be the ultimate panacea, is also infected. Read the press release from the National Institutes for Health.

Children, not known to be carriers or widely infected, are now being subjected to vaccine mandates with infants the latest guinea pigs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) less than definitively states, “COVID-19 vaccines are safe—much safer than getting COVID-19.” This is hardly an inducement for subjecting infants and toddlers to vaccines that do not have long-term, verifying test data.

Not only is Fauci’s real life medical background questionable — he has not been at a patient’s bedside since making rounds as a medical school resident — he is also an extreme leftist partisan as evidenced by the recent commencement speech** he gave at City College of New York in which he bashed President Trump. This 2001 photo from National File provides further proof, showing Fauci with socialist George Soros and a horde of media elites and the philanthropists who supported their efforts to swing the USA deep blue.
