Another illegal alien on crime spree kills American

July 29, 2015

What’s the point of a GOP congressional majority if status quo continues?

Juan Emmanuel Razo, an admitted illegal alien from Mexico, who was detained but released July 7, after a “suspicious vehicle” incident, has repaid the Obama imposed generosity of the border patrol agents — under the direction of Immigration and Border Enforcement (ICE) — who advised the Ohio sheriff’s office not to take him into custody despite his status.

On Monday, Razo, 35, was charged with the murder of a 60-year-old woman in her home, the attempted rape of his 14-year-old niece, and attempted murder in the shooting of a 30-year-old woman who was walking along a bike path with her two children. The murdered woman lived directly behind the bike path. Razo capped off his spree by shooting at law enforcement officers as they attempted to apprehend him.

When taken into custody, he was unable to produce a driver’s license, a green card, a birth certificate or any type of identification.

Frustrated Judge Michael Cicconetti asked loudly, “How in the hell do I even know it’s him?” When Cicconetti heard the list of charges, he stated, “I can’t set a bond high enough” and set it at $10 million.

Prosecutors and sheriff’s deputies stated in court that Razo “gave a full confession to deputies.” A Spanish translator was needed to interpret Razo’s statement.

In 2013, the Center for Immigration Studies reported ICE freed 36,007 convicted criminal aliens from detention who were awaiting the outcome of deportation proceedings. This group included aliens convicted of hundreds of violent and serious crimes, including homicide, sexual assault, kidnapping, and aggravated assault. The list of crimes also includes more than 16,000 drunk or drugged driving convictions. In the intervening years, Obama’s policies have become even more lenient, and the serious problem has worsened.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Donald Trump, the only presidential candidate to focus on the criminal invasion, has surged in recent polls.

A new CNN survey shows a wide majority — 64% of Republicans prefer securing the border and deportation of illegals over legalization.

Newmax’ J.D. Hayworth exposes Jeb Bush’s slippery Spanish/English double-talk on illegal immigration. The Bush spin on Spanish language Telemundo provides English subtitles. Hayworth points out the differences in Bush’s comments depending on the language he uses.

Meanwhile we get this type of limp-wrested, unenforceable lip service from three Arizona Congressmen, adept at skewing the facts and slathering on a thick layer of what many of us know as horse pucky.


Trump’s appeal? He gives voice to Americans

July 11, 2015

Phoenix appearance with Sheriff Arpaio dominates national news

Recently announced presidential candidate Donald Trump’s scheduled campaign stop in Phoenix today has been instructive. Initially dismissed as a mega-mogul with a penchant for speaking his mind, it turns out he has a massive following.

His appearance had to be moved from the upscale Biltmore Resort, which was unable to accommodate the growing crowd, to the Phoenix Convention Center, as thousands requested tickets.

Everyone, it seems, has an opinion on the man and his blunt illegal immigration message.

Amnesty proponents, Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake are appalled. Gov. Doug Ducey, who ran as a border hawk and did an abrupt post-election turnaround, is averting his eyes and keeping his head down. Phoenix’ far-left mayor and his bobble-headed contingent of Democrat City Council members are aghast. The Republicans pick at their collars and shift uncomfortably when Trump’s name is mentioned. Arizona’s GOP members of the congressional delegation have gone uncharacteristically mute.

With elections just around the bend and Balkan-like ethnic polarization becoming the norm, politicos are walking a tightrope, spittle-laden fingers to the wind, worrying which words they utter will offend which bloc the most or least. The group they appear less concerned about offending are American citizens. The open borders clique at the fading Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) is foaming-at-the-mouth apoplectic, spewing the type of rancid rhetoric the leftist newspaper prefers to attribute to conservatives who take issue with its extreme editorial policy.

The uncomfortable truth is that much of what Trump has to say on illegal immigration strikes a chord with Arizona residents who are weary of the steady flow of foreign nationals, taking jobs and making demands, sapping our resources, stretching our generosity and yes, committing crime. Lots of it. They are jailed, even deported and return to commit more. WND’s Aaron Klein substantiates the facts with his report, “FBI data backs up Trump claims on illegals and crime.”

Then ask yourself why Republicans shift embarrassingly when the unvarnished truth is boldly stated. By turning a blind eye and going tight-lipped, they are not representing American citizens of either party who deserve better. But even more to the point, since they ran as Republicans, they are complicit in ensuring the ultimate irrelevancy of the GOP. Immigrant groups —- even those who came legally through the front door —- have generally remained, generations later, in the Democrat camp.

Donald Trump’s surprising popularity shouldn’t be so surprising.  He is giving voice to the frustrations many Americans feel and are unable to articulate for fear of being slurred or unfairly labeled. 

Donald Trump has no such concerns. For that we should be grateful.


Blind rogue elephant makes deals with Obama, tramples Americans

June 27, 2015

Although former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) is at his best in this exposé on the House GOP sellout on immigration bills, the information he delivers is alarming.

Breitbart’s Big Government carries Tancredo’s warning about the House immigration bills slated to be debated on the House floor sometime after the July Fourth recess. Tancredo describes them as ranging from “deficient to disastrous,” with many “deeply flawed.”

He writes, ”Speaker Boehner and his team have no intention of allowing strong immigration enforcement bills to come to a vote on the House floor. The reasons for this continued stupidity are as transparent as they are onerous. The House Republican leadership continues to misread and misunderstand public opinion and the nation’s strong desire for both secure borders and interior enforcement.”

Tancredo notes there are “10,000 potential terrorists entering the country annually.” That’s the number of border crossers entering the United States each year from countries on the official government list of state sponsors of terrorism.

He concludes, “There are two serious obstacles to passing meaningful immigration bills out of the Republican-majority US House of Representatives. One is the duplicitous marauder who lives in the White House, and the other a blind rogue elephant on Capitol Hill.

Knowledge is power. We urge you to read “Tancredo: House GOP preparing to sell out on immigration bills.”

Then, first thing Monday morning, contact your Republican members of congress and let them know you’ve had enough. More than ever, in these perilous times, we deserve secure borders and actual enforcement.


Community organizer in the WH still trying to organize communities

June 13, 2015

Barack Obama’s focus as a community organizer has grown along with the powerful office he holds as President of the United States. Now as a lame duck with his second term closing in on him, he still has leftist agenda items he appears determined to implement.

Currently his sights are set on communities across America that don’t meet his standards of what a diversified community should look like.

Stanley Kurtz writing for National Review explains the far-reaching regulations contained in Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH):

“In the early stages, the AFFH rule will mandate the collection of information on the precise racial, ethnic, and income distribution of housing in nearly every census tract in the nation. Once that information has been gathered, escalating pressure will be placed on municipalities across the country to abandon local zoning policies and re-engineer housing stock at local expense. Municipalities will be pressured to join regional consortia that will have the effect of taking housing decisions out of the hands of elected officials and the citizens they represent. And the federal government will pressure localities to build dense housing developments near transportation hubs and business areas.”

Kudos to AZ U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-CD 4), who sponsored the amendment blocking the passage of AFFH —- a social engineering regulation of the worst kind. It would rig federal grant monies intended to address community improvements to compliance with the regime’s standards.

“American citizens and communities should be free to choose where they would like to live and not be subject to federal neighborhood engineering at the behest of an overreaching federal government,” said Gosar, who is leading an effort in the House to block the regulations. Watch Gosar’s appearance on FOX News.

If enacted, this measure could depress property values as cheaper homes crop up in wealthier neighborhoods and raise taxes, Gosar warned. It could also tilt the balance of political power as more Democrat-leaning minorities are funneled into Republican-leaning neighborhoods.


Dems defeat Obama on trade scheme….

June 12, 2015

….for now

Despite Obama’s intensive campaign to gain support for his signature Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, he was unable to convince more than a few Democrats to support his push for the disastrous fast-track authority he so desperately desired. Had this passed, he would have been granted authority to submit the measure to Congress for a vote in a specified timetable without lawmakers being able to amend it.

With supportive Chamber of Commerce mega-bucks campaign contributions on the line, there has been widespread Republican support for this lunacy.

Obama’s dramatic defeat followed a lengthy lobbying campaign in which he invested significant credibility and political capital. Next to Obamacare, this was his most sought after key issue for passage. It also has his long-favored open borders and climate change components attached.

The House vote was 302 to 126. (Republicans are in roman; Democrats in italic; Independents are underlined). Although Matt Salmon (R-AZ CD 5) has tried to bring conservatives onboard to support the measure, no doubt sensing the extreme level of opposition, he ultimately joined the entire Arizona delegation in voting against it.

Even liberal Nancy Pelosi, the former House Speaker, voted against the deplorable bill.

Although the secretly negotiated legislation is now “stuck in the station,” as Pelosi described it, Speaker John Boehner, has decided to give Obama the weekend to try to win over enough Democrats, saying he intends to bring it up for reconsideration in the House next Tuesday.

 


Breitbart takes note of Sen. Kelli Ward; McCain fares badly

June 6, 2015

Salmon onboard with McCain on deceptive trade deal

It has often been a practice at Seeing Red AZ to run a post titled, “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.” We’ve included columns by respected conservative writers such as Victor Davis Hanson, Michelle Malkin, Thomas Sowell, Mark Steyn, Walter Williams, and Charles Krauthammer.

Today we introduce you to Michelle Moons, whose Breitbart News exposé on John McCain should be included among your weekend activities. Moons interviews Arizona State Sen. Kelli Ward who expresses her concerns over the secrecy surrounding the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), known colloquially as Obamatrade.

Make time to read, Exclusive —  Arizona’s Kelli Ward Slams Obamatrade Secrecy: Not ‘The Way Government Should Be Doing Business.’

We recently covered this “huge” issue and its inclusion of irreversible authority to the participating nations, including unrestricted immigration.

This site steadfastly encourages Sen. Ward and applauds her exploratory campaign for the U.S. Senate. To turn that effort into the real deal takes widespread support. Read her message here. Then help her out on this secure contribution page. We all know Arizonans are ready for a change after over three decades of the treacherous John McCain. Campaigns are costly. Please give what you can.

It matters.


Why McCain is ditching “rock star” Hillary for Lindsey

June 2, 2015

In 2013, Arizona’s doddering senior senator John McCain proclaimed Hillary Clinton a “rock star” who he could support for the presidency in 2016.

His deep affection for Clinton remained true, even in the face of the outrage he expressed over the four dead Americans at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya —- left unprotected by the State Department Clinton oversaw and the barrage of lies told in the cover-up effort. Then on October 6, 2014 came the tear jerking  news that the two-timing McCain was jilting Hillary

We wrote at the time: The old crooner either forgot he was already serenading his liberal honey Hillary, or he suddenly discovered she isn’t quite as alluring as his submissive South Carolinian buddy Lindsey Graham. Either way, the daily reported that “if U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham decides to run for president in 2016, he can count on the whole-hearted support of the 2008 Republican nominee, U.S. Sen. John McCain, his longtime ally on national security, immigration reform and other matters.”

“Of course,” McCain, said, explaining his change of heart. “I mean, we’re the closest of friends.”

These days, McCain’s fickle-heartedness has an even more pragmatic thrust propelling his decision-making. Since he was blowing kisses in Hillary’s direction, elected Republican precinct committeemen at their January 2014 annual Maricopa County mandatory meeting overwhelmingly passed a resolution to censure him by a vote of 1,150 – 351. A similar, embarrassing  censure was also  passed at the GOP statewide meeting of elected state committeemen two weeks later. At the 2015 GOP Statutory Meeting McCain and Flake were both booed and met by turned backs and an array of derisive lapel buttons and stickers.

Although Lindsey Graham kicked off his presidential bid Monday, he hasn’t even registered a blip on the RealClearPolitics political radar.  And without making it into the top 10 —- which is highly unlikely —-  he won’t make the cut for the August and September debates.

Those details are of little consequence to McCain as he desperately attempts to burnish his tarnished image. He is solely focused on the fact he can’t get away with supporting liberal Hillary when he is likely facing a conservative challenger in state Sen. Kelli Ward.  The family physician, also a lawmaker, mom and military wife, is married to AZ Air National Guard Colonel Michael Ward, who currently serves as Arizona’s Air Surgeon.

McCain, on the other hand, as reported in the Examiner, urged the IRS to target Tea Party, conservative groups, and his operatives have worked to eradicate conservative PC’s in a concerted effort to replace them with mavericky moderates after the censures. FrontPage carries this report detailing how McCain used San Francisco Obama donors to purge conservative precinct committeemen from the Arizona Republican party ranks.

McCain likely recruited Lindsey Graham, his obliging toady and nearly constant companion, to provide him much-needed cover. Why else would the South Carolina senator, who was censured throughout his own state, enter the already packed GOP presidential field where he has little chance of success? 

It’s time for the manipulative and aged RINO McCain to take a rest in one of his eight…or is it seven or nine?…homes. He can’t remember.
