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.


Ann Coulter stands her ground against Jorge Ramos

May 30, 2015

“We have taken in one-quarter of the entire Mexican population,” Coulter emphasized to Fusion host Jorge Ramos. “At what point will we have taken in enough, in your view?”

Matthew Boyle writing for Breitbart covers the interaction. Read it and watch the video as Ann Coulter, author of ¡Adios America!, boldly counters Ramos’ underestimation of the numbers of his fellow countrymen who have illegally invaded the United States.

Father‘s Day is Sunday, June 21. ¡Adios America!: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole, is a book worthy of gifting. Dads have enough after shave, power tools and ties. Expand his mind.

The bold Coulter’s book is newly released. Yet there is far more to consider. In May 2011 we posted “Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns.” The first paragraph includes a link to this alarming ABC 10 News in San Diego report which details the fact the Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah, described by authorities as even more dangerous than Al-Qaida, has a long-established foothold in the city of Tijuana. The sole focus is radicalizing Mexican communities.

 As far back as October 2001, WND sounded the alarm in an article titled, “Arab terrorists crossing border,” noting a “tremendous increase in OTM’s (law enforcement’s term for ‘Other Than Mexicans’). Illegals from the former Soviet Union, Asia, and the Middle East are joining the flood of Mexicans, Central and South Americans — all slipping in through our incredibly accessible and porous South border. Apprehensions have also included illegals from the Sudan, Iraq, and even Iran.”

Yet in complete disregard of the seriousness associated with an unsecured border, accompanied by a rise of the global terrorist threat presented by ISIS —- which the clueless Barack Obama referred to as a Jay-Vee team as he claims the junk science of Climate Change is the most serious problem facing us —- we have three spineless Arizona Republican Congressmen write this nonsense as they double-talk the critical issue. The liberals at the Arizona Republic call it a “good thing.” Both  U.S. Sens. McCain and Flake are solidly onboard with the open border agenda.

 We can, and must,  do better.


AZ GOP’s Cap & Trade and Obamacare amnesia

May 29, 2015

Make no mistake. Although Seeing Red AZ, like the vast majority of Arizona conservatives, actively supports the defeat of John McCain, we are not onboard with liberal Ann Kirkpatrick who recently announced her challenge to the RINO senator. 

We optimistically look forward to a face-off led by state Sen. Kelli Ward, a uniquely qualified Mohave County whirlwind.  Sen. Ward, a family physician, has opened an exploratory campaign, impressing crowds as she travels the state with her well articulated conservative message.

In tackling the liberal Kirkpatrick, we found it curious that the AZ GOP chose to raise the issue of her votes in support of Obama endorsed Cap and Trade and his signature Obamacare.

They must have suffered a memory lapse regarding Jeff Flake’s stunning complicity when the votes on these mega-issues were taken. The appropriately named Flake was one of only two Republicans who didn’t bother to show up —- which was a good as voting for the so-called American Clean Energy and Security Act (Cap and Trade), a massive government expansion with dire consequences for American taxpayers and manufacturing. By his absence, Jeff Flake helped the Democrats pass a junk science, climate change-based, massive national energy tax, restricting carbon emissions by imposition of exorbitant penalties against the U.S., which other nations are able to skirt.

Flake claimed a “family conflict” due to his daughter’s participation in the talent portion of a teen beauty pageant in Alabama to be held the weekend following the vote. His fellow Republican dodger John Sullivan was in alcohol rehab, though the Dems thought the vote was crucial enough to pull Rep. Patrick Kennedy out of his drug treatment program.  

Another “family conflict” ensured Flake was also MIA on the crucial vote to restore funding of Obamacare. His mentor, John McCain, voted with the Democrats.

In giving cover to McCain, the AZ GOP oddly referred to the lackluster Kirkpatrick as Arizona’s “Most Progressive Democrat in Congress,”  completely obscuring the disastrous records of Raul Grijalva; Ed Pastor, succeeded last election by Ruben Gallego; and former Green Party member Kyrsten Sinema. The voters of the First Congressional District were so dissatisfied with Kirkpatrick’s performance they booted her out after her first term. She regained the seat by a slim margin in 2013 when U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, who replaced her, relocated to CD 4 and was returned to congress representing that district.

Kirkpatrick is not formidable. Neither is she any different from either Flake or McCain. We have gotten the same treatment from them that she dishes out. The only difference is they deceptively run as Republicans.
