“Nowhere Man’ Elijah Norton with zero credentials bashes conservative incumbent U.S. Rep. David Schweikert

May 13, 2022

Asking what newly reconfigured 1st Congressional District candidate Elijah Norton has in common with The Beatles is not as strange as it might appear. In 1963, John Lennon, exhibiting an extraordinary sense of predictive insight wrote the song “Nowhere Man,” that ideally describes candidate Elijah Norton, though Norton wasn’t born until 1990.

In this March 3, 2022 post, “U.S. Rep. Schweikert’s credentials vs. wannabe’s ambition,“ Seeing Red AZ exposed the deplorable tactics Norton has used in an attempt to diminish conservative Congressman David Schweikert, who has consistently worked on behalf his constituents. Now Norton, a well-heeled, recent transplant from Missouri and mostly self-funded candidate, has engaged in unfounded and escalating attacks, actually aiding democrat challengers.

It’s worth remembering that Congressman Schweikert has emerged victorious from other political challengers, including Ben Quayle a.k.a Brock Landers the son of former Vice President Dan Quayle as well as Hiral Tipirneni, formerly a Valley doctor, disallowed to practiced medicine since losing a medical malpractice lawsuit in 2007 resulting in the needless death of a former patient. That fact didn’t stop her from deceptively running campaign ads wearing scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck at a fake patient‘s bedside. During the Obama administration, dedicated leftist Tipirneni made $millions promoting Obamacare.

Both Quayle and Tippernini carpet-bagged into the district to challenge Schweikert. His effectiveness aided his success in those two needless challenges. Now Elijah Norton is resorting to contrived hit pieces against Congressman David Schweikert. A second one was in yesterday’s mail. Norton is unable to point to any personal political successes due to the fact that he has none. Take time to read the linked exposé. Then disregard the fallacious flyers and commit to reelecting Congressman David Schweikert…a proven conservative who consistently delivers on behalf of Arizonans.  We are fortunate to have him representing Arizona.

The Primary Election will take place August 2.


U.S. Rep. Schweikert’s credentials vs. wannabe’s ambition

March 3, 2022

AZ carpetbagging newcomer Elijah Norton contemptibly resorts to deceit attempting to promote himself 

It’s election time again, which brings out the oversized egos and the newbie kooks seeking a way to aggrandize themselves.

First we’ll get the obvious out of the way. The declining local newspaper has established itself as reliably Trump-despising, Hillary-endorsing and Biden-supporting.  Anything it has to say about Republicans is hostility-laced and part of a multi-pronged attack, engaging its two remaining columnists and an open-border editorialist as toxin-infused dart throwers. Conservatives are front and center for annihilation, facts be damned.

On Wednesday many Republican voters received a vicious, oversized mailer featuring six-term, CD-6 Congressman David Schweikert, (read his impressive bio) in stark black and white photos with strategically placed touches of red added for negative emphasis and denigrating quotes from what is coyly referred to as “azcentral”— which is none other than the conservative abhorring newspaper.

It took some searching to find the required “paid for by” notice, printed in paler ink. Lobbing the hits is an inexperienced 31-year-old novice challenger, Elijah Norton, who moved to Arizona from Missouri just five years ago. Norton’s business is an auto insurance company based in California, Florida, and Washington state. Arizona doesn’t qualify as worthy enough for Norton to headquarter his business, yet it’s the state he wants to represent in congress.

The logical manner of announcing a congressional candidacy is to promote one’s own credentials that make the case for election as the most experienced, best qualified candidate. Since Norton is unable to do that, he resorts to deceitful smear tactics that render him offensively unacceptable. The nondescript Scottsdale office building listed as his campaign address provides even more information about Elijah Norton’s style. The suite number he uses is self-described as a “virtual office” that rents for $99 a month and cleverly offers services to make it appear to be a fully staffed office. That might be an ideal solution for businesses that don’t require a staffed, brick and mortar location. It doesn’t work for a congressional wannabe.

Don’t be conned by a slick pretender, who cites the leftwing newspaper as a corroborating colluder in its quest to purge the state of Republican office holders.

Seeing Red AZ enthusiastically endorses Congressman David Schweikert for reelection. He is a trusted conservative and has credentials ego-driven Norton could only hope to possess.


Lies get a workout as AZ Republic defames US Rep. Gosar

February 25, 2022

The radically leftwing Arizona Republic, a purveyor of conservative loathing and disinformation, is relentless in its ongoing effort to defame AZ’s CD-4 conservative Congressman Paul Gosar. (Read his bio and ratings under the link.)

So much so, in fact, that this morning’s edition goes to the extreme length of headlining a deceit-filled article, “Jewish community alarmed as Glassman, Gosar host fundraiser.”

To carry out this deception, the newspaper which previously gave editorial writer Elvia Diaz a pass on comparing illegals crossing our border to Jews fleeing Hitler, goes to great lengths to smear Gosar as an antisemite. This trickery is based on what they say is a comment he reportedly made in a 2017 interview in which the interviewer asked about George Soros, the far-left, billionaire who funds extreme causes and candidates.  Gosar is quoted as saying, “I think he’s from Hungary. I think he was Jewish. And I think he turned in his own people to the Nazi’s.”

This was enough for the failing newspaper to throw the six-term congressman, with a strong pro-Israel record under the political bus, though Soros identified himself as collaborating with the Nazi’s in this CBS 60 Minutes interview, defending his hideous action with a smirk on his face, comparing it to the way the market works and calling himself a boy. At 14 Soros was already lacking morality.

While we are disappointed in Gosar partnering at a fundraiser with fake Republican and political opportunist Rodney Glassman, there may well be more to this than meets the eye.


AZ Rep. Paul Gosar’s House censure is political retribution

November 19, 2021

Make no mistake: His actual transgression is being a reliable conservative and Trump supporter

Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S., is a righteous Republican, ably representing Arizona’s 4th Congressional District since 2013. He was previously elected in 2010 to represent the 1st congressional district until redistricting altered the boundaries. Highly regarded in his field of dentistry in which he practiced from 1989 to 2010, Gosar was the recipient of Arizona Dental Association’s “Dentist of the Year” award, and was inducted into the association’s Hall of Fame. This background attests to the high regard in which he has been held by his professional peers prior to retirement to represent Arizonans in congress.

As a dedicated conservative, Congressman Gosar, (this link provides his enviable congressional ratings and full bio) who has consistently won his elections by wide margins, is a frequent target of the left, which is why SRAZ has ignored the recent absurd and politically-motivated censure intending to marginalize the well-respected congressman based on a brief, symbolic cartoon video posted by his staff. Now removed, it depicted Gosar in a fantasy battle with radical leftist and open border fanatic Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Pres. Let’s Go Brandon.

This is Congressman Gosar’s outstanding response to the democrats attempts to cancel him via censure. The final sentence includes a copy of the prepared floor remarks given by Congressman Gosar. Two Republicrat Reps. Liz Cheney (WY) and Adam Kinzinger (IL) joined the unified dems.

Arizonans are fortunate to have this accomplished and dedicated leader representing us in the U.S. Congress. Although Dr. Gosar is elected by the voters in the 4th congressional district, he represents us all in Washington, DC. — for which we can be proud and grateful.


Scientific authorities Biden, Pope meet to discuss climate                           

October 18, 2021

Neither Joe Biden, nearly 79, nor Pope Francis, soon to be 85, are scientists or medical doctors. They are both leftists, and as such are proponents of the debated issue known alternatively as climate change or global warming. Climate change is much preferred since it cuts a wider swath including global cooling, wildfires, droughts, floods or other phenomena that have been recorded throughout history. Francis gave an encyclical on ecology, declaring that climate change is real and mainly “a result of human activity.” The problem is urgent, he said. “Never have we so hurt and mistreated our common home as we have in the last two hundred years.”

The United States is just over two hundred years since its founding, making Francis’ words appear to be a pointed barb. Given that no nation was mechanized then, his time frame is more than odd. These two wizards will also discuss the Covid-19 pandemic.

The duo will meet at the Vatican Oct. 29 to discuss things over which they have no control, though it would seem the pope would use the opportunity to dissuade Catholic Biden from his pro-abortion stance, since a pro-life position is a basic tenant of the faith.

In June, the U.S. Catholic bishops overwhelmingly approved the drafting of a “teaching document” that many hope will rebuke Catholic politicians, including Biden, for receiving communion despite their support for the gruesome act of abortion.

But Biden and Francis are cunning liberals who are both more political than religious. Their agenda states the duo “will discuss working together on efforts grounded in respect for fundamental human dignity, including ending the COVID-19 pandemic. They must have missed that abortion permanently disrespects human dignity as preborn humans are brutally ripped from what should be the safety of their mother’s uterus.

When Argentine Francis came to the United States to address congress in 2015, he stopped first in Cuba, prioritizing his meeting with Communist dictators Fidel and Raul Castro, where they warmly conversed in Spanish and dined, like old amigos.

Arizona U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, a principled Catholic and conservative Republican, shunned Francis’ speech.


AZ ballot deception exposed in U.S. House hearing

October 8, 2021

It’s not often SRAZ links directly to another site as in this post, but today is an exception, not just for substantiation, but in an ardent quest for the truth.

The important link to Conservative Treehouse aka The Last Refuge, is definitely worth your time:

During Testimony Maricopa County Officials Admit to Deleting 2020 Election Data to Avoid Election Subpoena.” The videos featuring AZ CD-5 Congressman Andy Biggs are excellent — and very revealing. Integrity is a disinfecting bright light, all too rare these days in D.C.


Biden: One Independence Day for Americans is not enough

June 18, 2021

Biden establishes Juneteenth as a new holiday in a blatant effort to keep black voters in the democrat party

The Arizona Republic is well known for its far left slant, which is why subscriptions have plummeted.  It is also not above skewing facts when it suits its purposes. Today the objects of its bile spew are Arizona Congressmen Paul Gosar (CD-4) and Andy Biggs (CD-5). Their crime is one that is not found in the Arizona Revised Statutes Criminal Code. They have been elected by the citizens of their congressional districts because they are conservatives — a concept that is anathema to the newspaper that has made clear it hires reporters based on their ethnicity.

Congressmen Gosar and Biggs are being eviscerated for voting NO on S. 475, the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act, which establishes June 19, as a legal public holiday. Juneteenth was the mispronounced term used for June Nineteenth. It is tied to the history of enslaved blacks in Galveston, Texas, learning that they had been emancipated over two years earlier following President Abraham Lincoln’s September 22, 1862 Emancipation Proclamation, which abolished slavery.

Lost in all of the newly provoked racial discord is the fact that Abraham Lincoln was the first Republican U.S. President. Elected November 6, 1860 he was dedicated to ending slavery, which Southern democrats, who had seceded from the union, battled to preserve. The U.S. Civil War (1861-1865), in which an estimated 750,000 Americans died, was fought to end slavery. The Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution passed by congress in 1865 reaffirmed the abolishment of slavery.

Read Paul Gosar’s logical statement explaining his vote.  We have also copied it here:

“Our country is divided, and the cultural and political Marxists are continuing their relentless efforts to divide this country further. 

Juneteenth is more debunked Critical Race Theory in action. I reject racism. I reject the racial division people are promoting. I voted no because this proposed holiday does not bring us together, it tears us apart.

I cannot support efforts that further racial divisions in this country. We have one Independence Day, and it applies equally to all people of all races.”

Rammed through by democrats exploiting the death of career criminal George Floyd, the Juneteenth holiday vote tally can be seen here. Of a total of 415 votes cast, the democrats all voted in unison. Republicans split, with 195 joining the democrats, and 14 Republicans voting against the creation of a new holiday. Two Republicans, Dan Crenshaw (TX)  and Patrick McHenry (NC) did not vote.

Joe Biden, a democrat who has fomented division, wasted no time signing the newly established holiday into law on Thursday.


Dem AZ US Sens. Sinema, Kelly hammered by leftist columnist

April 27, 2021

The dem duo is not leftwing enough to suit radical local newspaper columnist

Judging from the number of songs dedicated to the topic, there are few things as wrenching as a romance gone wrong. Still the ache can turn to rage, as we witness with local newspaper columnist, Elvia Diaz.

A committed leftist, Diaz is solidly on board with elected democrats, both local and national. Republicans elicit her bile spews. Conservatives are doused with her contempt. Now, however, in a column headlined, “Sinema, Kelly just opportunistic,” she disgorges her fury at democrats who dare to veer, ever so slightly, from marching in her jack-booted lockstep.

Diaz saves her most vicious revulsion for democrats who stray from the hard-left line she has drawn in the sand that makes up her brain’s cerebrum, which normally controls senses, reasoning and judgment.

She first rips into Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, who she refers to as a “self-declared border czar” for issuing this Declaration of Emergency at Arizona’s southern border and deploying 250 National Guard troops to deal with the illegal alien invasion. Dias refers to them as “asylum seekers” and knocks President Trump’s effective border policies, without having to taint her fingers by typing out the name Donald Trump, instead referring to him multiple times as “the former president.”

Kneeling at the Biden altar, Diaz inconceivably saves her strongest ire for democrats and former objects of her affection, Arizona U.S. Senators  Krysten Sinema and Mark Kelly (he faces reelection in 2022), who she now accuses of “scoring political points by rushing to back” Ducey’s decision. “But they didn’t stop there,” an irate Diaz rants. She accuses them of having the audacity to send this letter to the White House, using the forbidden word “crisis” and asking for financial reimbursement from the flawed president she voted for.

SRAZ wrote, AZ Sens. Sinema, Kelly suddenly want Biden to fund border troops,” last week.

Citing the recent Quinnipiac poll we previously posted (3rd paragraph from the bottom) Diaz begrudgingly admits, “Border security is Biden’s weak spot and that can hurt Democrats with some voters.” Notice the equivocal “some” inserted as a calmer to fellow leftists. The poll shows a overwhelming 55% disapprove of Biden’s neglect of the U.S./Mexican border, compared to 29% who approve.

VP Kamala Harris, Biden’s appointed border czar has been too busy redecorating the vice presidential mansion and shopping for her ubiquitous black suits to travel to the border, although she does find the topic worthy of one of her now famous cackles.


Biden’s border crisis coming to a neighborhood near you

April 11, 2021

Arizona U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-CD 5) has become a regular Fox News go-to source on the border calamity and with good reason. His credentials are impeccable and as co-chair of the Border Security Caucus he has seen first hand what Pres. Biden and VP Kamala Harris — supposedly in charge of overseeing the catastrophic border — have not. In fact, the very suggestion of her going to the U.S./Mexico border sends her into fits of laughter.

We urge you to read Congressman Biggs‘ fact-filled column, “Biden’s Border Crisis Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You,” published on Townhall.


Congressional dems seek permanently rigged elections

March 8, 2021

Virtual Pres. Biden gives virtual remarks 

H.R. 1, a massive bill bearing the duplicitous name of ‘For the People Act’ is farcically described by the left as expanding voting rights, changing campaign finance laws to reduce the influence of money in politics, limiting partisan gerrymandering and creating new ethics rules for federal officeholders.

This is dishonesty on steroids.

Betsy McCaughey, a former lieutenant governor of New York has written an informative editorial in the Boston Herald, exposing the latest, most expansive and unscrupulous deceit the democrats have tried to foist upon the American electorate.Pelosi’s HR1 bill a blatant power grab for Democrats,” is an education into what the far leftists have in store for us. It’s crucial that we arm ourselves with knowledge.

The bill passed the U.S. House of Representatives on March 5, 2021, where it carried the lockstep support of every democrat member and now heads to the Senate. Whoever is pulling the strings on incoherent puppet Joe Biden, issued a laudatory statement. Feeble Biden, he’s still hiding out, announced another executive order “expanding voting access” in virtual remarks played at Sunday’s Martin and Coretta King Unity Breakfast in Selma, Alabama.

According to its website — Yes, the bill has its own website — “H.R. 1 is widely supported among civil rights and voting rights advocates, government ethics and transparency groups, labor organizations, environmental groups, gun violence prevention groups, women and LGBTQ groups, youth organizations, and progressive organizations.”

Pay attention to the language manipulation.

The rest of America strenuously opposes the left’s attempt to hijack our free and fair elections.

The Heritage Foundation provides important facts including a summary, key issues and a key bullet point explanation of what the bill will do to eliminate individual states’ basic security protocols in our constitutional election system. It’s been regurgitated since 1999, but following the 2016 election of President Donald Trump, and his continued popularity, democrats have a new urgency to steamroll this calamitous bill through.

Arizona’s two U.S. Senators are democrats, who can be expected to run with the panting herd. Arizona’s 5 dem members of congress all marched in lockstep, bowing to Biden.
