Irrational AZ Republic reporting hits new low

MS-13 gangsters shouldn’t be held responsible for crime, terror surge

We here at Seeing Red AZ abhor triteness and generalities as much as the next person, so right out of the hatch we’re cutting to the chase as we attempt to interpret the local newspaper‘s “No stars — Inconclusive” rating of a statement made by Rep. Martha McSally, (R-CD 2).

Let us be perfectly clear.  Martha McSally, often referred to on this site as “Sally McCain,” is not our cup of tea. In fact, she’s too liberal by half, regardless of how she tries to characterize herself while in candidate mode. You can take that to the bank.

Sally McCain is abandoning her House post to run for the U.S. Senate seat currently unoccupied by preening self-pimping, Republicrat Jeff Flake, a John McCain colluder — who prefers to spend his remaining time canoodling with left-wing media types, throwing slings and arrows at Republican President Trump.

Such is the sad state of affairs in Arizona GOP politics. For all intents and purposes, Arizonans have no representation in the U.S. Senate. The logical, principled conservative choice is Dr. Kelli Ward, whom we support.

But we digress.

Sally McCain (aka Martha McSally) is being taken to task for besmirching the international MS-13 gang which has fanned out an estimated 10,000 violent, murderous and drug smuggling gang members throughout the United States.

The Arizona Republic newspaper, known as The Periódico de la República de Arizona for its radical, pro-illegal alien stance, quibbles over the terms “criminal street gang” or simply “gang.” After all, these vicious and rapidly expanding monsters originated in Central America, which makes them sainted, redeemable Hispanics worthy of not only roaming freely in the USA, and obtaining taxpayer funded benefits but likely deserving of amnesty. Why not? The left-wing newspaper refers to the massive number of gangsters as  “fluctuating” and promotes illegal aliens being counted in the upcoming census, with the ultimate end game of bolstering the ranks of the Democrat party.

The newspaper quotes slippery Lidia E. Nuño, an assistant criminal justice professor at California State University (Fullerton).who doltishly disputes the gang’s numbers, is actually quoted as saying, “If the figure is correct, that doesn’t necessarily mean that these 10,000 individuals are murdering people each day.” Proving a Ph.D has lost its value, she foolishly adds, it “could be more than 10,000 or less than 10,000.”

At Arizona State University her Ph.D dissertation was titled, “Hispanics’ and Undocumented Immigrants’ Perceptions of Procedural Justice, Legitimacy, and Willingness to Cooperate with the Police: An Assessment of the Process-Based Model of Policing.”

No wonder she’s the newspaper’s go-to gal.

AZ Republic favors Mexico over US President

April 4, 2018

Trump hatred takes center stage, illegals given a pass

The news that a caravan, likely underestimated at 1,300 emboldened Hondurans, upfront in their assertion that they are illegally flooding into the USA to cause havoc —- all with an assist from Mexico —-  provides editorialist Elvia Diaz another opportunity to display that her allegiance is with Mexico.

For obvious reasons, SRAZ has frequently referred to the local newspaper as the Periódico de la República de Arizona. The shameful coverage of this invasion of brassy illegals makes the anti-American, and certainly anti-Trump bias, all the more clear.

The online version is replete with a photos of families and young children that are intended to be heart wrenching.  Don’t be fooled. Our link in the first paragraph of this post makes their subterfuge all the more repugnant.

The headlined article is, “Migrant caravan that angered President Trump heads for AZ border.” Diaz’ observation is titled, “Trump makes a risky move on caravans.” She refers to Trump’s remarks on Tuesday signaling his intent to deploy military personnel to secure the U.S./Mexico border until the promised wall is built. The coverage is accompanied by a photo of an disgraceful anti-Trump demonstration, complete with a weapon-holding effigy of the president, in Beverly Hills last month.

In the skewed mindset of Elvia Diaz and her cohorts who earn their money elevating illegal aliens to sainthood status, it is the President of the United States and the American people who elected him, who are wrong.  Illegals always get a pass.

President Trump’s plan to deploy National Guard troops got no push back when the exact same forces were previously deployed to secure the Southern border — most recently by none other than liberal icon, Barack Obama. He mobilized 1,200 Army Guard soldiers in an effort to provide surveillance and support for the U.S. Border Patrol, combating drug trafficking and staunching the epidemic of illegals infesting the USA.

Donald Trump gets assaulted.

Foul-mouthed radical leftist wins Sandra Day O’Connor award

March 28, 2018

Ashley Judd, a self-declared “Nasty Woman,” struck a low note at the Women’s March in Washington with her vulgar tirade (video) denouncing then-newly elected President Donald Trump. With her historical ignorance on full display, she referred to him and those in his not even sworn-in administration as “Nazis.” Though her crude rant was timed to detract from his Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration, Judd is now deemed worthy of honor.

The Arizona Republic newspaper, noted for its unconcealed liberal bias, headlined the coverage, ‘Honor of a Lifetime.’ Judd, a wild radical with a penchant for shouting shock talk, received the Sandra Day O’Connor Lifetime Achievement Award Monday at the Arizona Foundation for Women’s 2018 luncheon at the Arizona Biltmore Resort.

Both the actress turned radical activist and the woman’s group venerating her have a decidedly liberal agenda. Among the past recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award named after former U. S. Supreme Court Justice and Arizona-raised Sandra Day O’Connor — known as a disappointing swing vote on the court exacerbated by her discord with conservative Justice Clarence Thomas — are Tipper Gore (Al Gore‘s ex-wife honored prior to their divorce); Marian Wright Edelman (longtime ally of Hillary Clinton); Janet Napolitano, (Arizona’s abysmal Democrat governor who took a midterm hike to ineffectively head the Department of Homeland Security for Barack Obama); Billy Jean King (lesbians have become a necessary component of women’s list honorees); Maria Schriver (member of the Kennedy clan); Madeleine Albright (best known for saying, “there’s a special place in hell“ for women who don’t support Hillary Clinton.) Of course, no list would be complete without the inclusion of beer heiress Cindy Hensley McCain.

In the event coverage, Ashley Judd is described as a “humanitarian,” which must be the current nom de plume for an out-of-work actress with a still hopeful agent. Her last film credits were prior to 2015, and even those were sparse.  Being a chronically unemployed liberal, historically ignorant and vulgar have catapulted Judd  into lifetime achievement status. Where does she go from this pinnacle?


Arizona Republic praises McSally for border deceit

March 23, 2018

 Enthusiastically compares her lies to those of McCain and Flake

As difficult as it is to believe, the liberal Arizona Republic newspaper editorially accuses senate candidate Martha McSally ofpulling a McCainon the border, while excusing John McCain’s and Jeff Flake‘s flagrant pre-election border deceit by saying, “every politician at some point makes an accommodation to the political winds. And in primary season in Arizona, the battles are fought in the lowlands of the extreme right.”

Take a moment to ruminate on those venomous words aimed at conservative Arizonans and shot at point blank range.

The Republic’s accusation is actually an accolade. No wonder the squish Republicrat, who is sure to win the newspaper’s GOP primary endorsement, is alternately known as Sally McCain. Rest assured they’ll drop her like a hot rock in the General Election when radical Kyrsten Sinema will secure the newspaper’s endorsement.

“In the past,” the editorial board glibly acknowledges, “that has meant moderates like John McCain and Jeff Flake have masqueraded as hardliners on immigration. Even Democrats knew when to go into full border hawk. Former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords could pound the drums of border protection with the best of them.”

“Now it’s Martha McSally’s turn,” according to the leftist, lie-condoning editorial board.

Seeing Red AZ supports conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for the U.S. Senate. She actually means what she says when she speaks in favor of securing the border.  Meet her as she appears with, and is endorsed by, Dr. Sebastian Gorka:

AZ Republic whitewashes fed’s Mexico travel warnings

March 10, 2018

The Arizona Republic newspaper, worried that the U.S. State Department’s travel warnings and bans regarding travel to Mexico will negatively impact its favored nation, especially as spring break approaches, counters with a statement from the Mexico Tourism Board.

The Board issued a blasé understatement acknowledging the U.S.’s right to warn travelers, though calling the State Department warning “counterproductive” saying “Playa del Carmen (Cozumel) is safe for travelers“— other than a recent ferry explosion, injuring 25 people.

Seriously.

Days ago, Mexican law enforcement officers located undetonated explosive devices on another tourist ferry.

“Messages like this, which imply safety issues without any basis in fact, are counterproductive to the goal of informing and educating travelers to Mexico and we strongly disagree with both this approach and the contents of this security message,” the Mexico Tourism Board announced. “Playa del Carmen is the largest destination in the Riviera Maya, and is surrounded by beautiful caves and pristine cenotes, eco parks like Xcaret, wonderful resorts, beach clubs, boutique hotels, and trendy shops with international brands.”

The statement published in the online version of the newspaper, is followed by a photo tour of “Beautiful Mexico.” 

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. is more forthright, reporting that tourists to all-inclusive resorts in Mexico suspect they were given tainted alcohol. The State Department has issued similar warnings.

If you still have travel concerns, this quote from Eric Olson who is employed promoting Mexicanmigration and migrants,“ acknowledging “it’s a little bit hot now,” should put your mind at ease:

“It’s also important to underscore that none of the statements from the State Department suggested that people from the U.S. are being targeted specifically, like they may be in Afghanistan or Iraq.” 

How many Americans would find the favorable comparisons to global war zones comforting enough to allow their kids to make Mexico a spring break destination or plan a getaway for themselves?


AZ Republic: It’s time to rewrite what America’s about

March 6, 2018

Caustic, divisive newspaper asserts, our sense of unity is fracturing

Among citizens who honor the United States of America, there is little doubt what our unique nation is “about.”  Most Americans would respond to such a query with variations on the theme of liberty, self-governance and nearly limitless opportunity for those who avail themselves of what the USA has to offer..

We’ve thrived as a team composed of players from vastly different backgrounds, whose common purpose was to have a free and prosperous society, beneficial to all. It was called unity, which trumps separatism and celebrations of diversity any day of the week.

The term “melting pot” was often used to describe the willing immersion of immigrants who came to America legally, millions through Ellis Island from 1892 to 1954. Whether from Western or Eastern Europe, Asia or myriad points beyond, they thrilled at the sight of the Statue of Liberty, a gift from France dedicated in New York harbor in 1886, accepted our history as their own, learned English and assimilated to our culture. Those were key elements to what was known as Americanization, which was a good thing.

 The Arizona Republic, citing an agendized PBS program, contends that we are “one nation, irreconcilable,” with people “increasingly identifying themselves by racial, ethnic, gender, generational, political, social and economic groups.”

The newspaper has suddenly become reticent, giving itself no recognition for expanding those differences on an ongoing basis. It duplicitously asserts, “As our sense of unity is fracturing, it’s worth asking if our national story is still about a shared sense of purpose in a land of opportunity. It’s worth asking what holds us together.”

Today the multicultural trendiness of celebrating diversity rather that unity, has undermined our team spirit. Democrats have cultivated identity politics. Not so long ago, it was noble to believe that with diligence anyone could aspire to what was known as, “The American Dream.” Today newcomers are told the deck is stacked against them, and only the Democrats care enough to get the gravy train rolling on their behalf.  Under this fraudulent premise, entrepreneurship is discouraged.

East Indian-born conservative political commentator, film maker and author Dinesh D’Souza has compiled a list of “10 great things about America,” that what’s left of the editorial board of the Arizona Republic should review. D’Souza’s commentary was written in 2003, but remains as relevant as if it were composed last week. It might make the editorial board rethink their foolish joint effort titled, “Time to rewrite what America’s about?”


AZ Republic celebrates repression of First Amendment

March 3, 2018

Liberals determine what constitutes free speech

The First Amendment to the Constitution separates America from repressive regimes and anarchies. In their wisdom, our Founders enshrined free speech as sacrosanct. It does not specify speech they approved of, but all speech. Among the rights detailed is that of people to peaceably assemble. The First Amendment, along with the entire Bill of Rights, was submitted to the states for ratification on September 25, 1789, and was adopted on December 15, 1791.

In recent years there have been efforts, especially in the halls of academia — the last place to imagine such constraints to exist — to shut down dissenting voices. What was held as above reproach for nearly 230 years is now unworthy.  Even newspapers, exemplified by the left-wing, Hillary Clinton endorsing,  Arizona Republic, demean those with views opposing their own skewed vantage point. Letters to the editor are selected to substantiate the skew.

Conservative speakers who have been invited to universities by campus groups are now either “uninvited” or banned from the campus and denied the ability to speak. Supposed scholars, putting their ignorance on display as they oppress opposing opinions, have overseen instances where protests have become violent. Bodily injuries, extensive property damage and intentionally set fires have been the instruments of intimidation.

 In 2004, conservative commentator, author and lawyer. Ann Coulter, invited to give an address to the U of A by the College Republicans, was the recipient of a cream pie attack. Ben Shapiro has been booed, as has FrontPage magazine’s editor David Horowitz. Students from ASU’s Cronkite School of Journalism — who should revere the First Amendment — invited then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to participate in a forum, only to shamefully chant ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ over him, denying him the right to speak. (video).

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, invited to give the commencement address at Rutgers University in 2014 was forced to withdraw after students and faculty staged a sit-in protest over her selection due to her involvement in the Iraq war during the G.W. Bush administration. When Rice gave the commencement address at Boston College in 2006, dozens of students and professors turned their backs to her and held up signs protesting the Iraq war.

In this National Review article, conservative author and CRTV host Michelle Malkin, details the absurdity of university students being too offended to hear speakers with whom they disagree — even Vice President Mike Pence, invited as a commencement speaker by the University of Notre Dame. Activist Imanne Mondane told the campus newspaper that she and her peers felt “unsafe” and threatened by “someone who openly is offensive but also demeaning of their humanity and of their life and of their identity.” Pence was formerly the governor of Indiana, where the school is located and was elected to represent the residents in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Here in Arizona the local leftist Arizona Republic newspaper uses this incendiary headline to herald another repression of free speech: Far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has another Phoenix-area event canceled.

Yiannopoulos, who reportedly received death threats, is unworthy to be heard because he previously worked for conservative Breitbart News. Being openly homosexual would have otherwise placed him on the newspaper’s preferred list.
