Pres. Trump fulfills his duty in filling SCOTUS vacancy

September 21, 2020

Dem’s petulant political agenda ricochets as Trump proceeds

Following the recent death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, speculation about her replacement on the U.S. Supreme Court has suddenly spiked, vying in stature with the Nov. 3 presidential election. The two are undeniably intertwined.

Democrats are apoplectic over the prospect of President Trump doing his duty and naming a replacement. They are banking on the “Harris Biden administration,” as bumbling Joe Biden, their presidential contender, has referred to the ticket he is supposed to be heading.  VP candidate Kamala Harris is even more audacious as she describes, “A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden.” (Both links include brief videos.)

The impact of the Supreme Court vacancy on the Nov. 2020 election should not be minimized. Another Trump appointee will give the court a 6-3 conservative majority, which is why Democrats are issuing threats.

Currently the Supreme Court confirming U.S. Senate has a Republican majority. There are 53 Republicans, 45 Democrats and 2 Independents, (who caucus with the Dems). Vice President Mike Pence casts any tie-braking vote.

Trump has already put forth a list of women Federal Court judges as a nod to Ginsburg. Still, the Democrats are crying, “foul” at the temerity of the elected President of the United States daring to make a legitimate appointment that is clearly within his purview.

Democrat leaders are shameless, as they threaten “packing the court” by adding new seats and filling them with Democrats and reviving their reliable fallback of resurrecting their failed impeachment scheme.

But court packing might only be the start. Democrat Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (NY) declared: “Let me be clear: if Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans move forward with this, (filling the SCOTUS vacancy) then nothing is off the table for next year.” For added emphasis, he repeated “Nothing is off the table.”

Schumer, who held an unusual joint press conference Sunday with radical first-term U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY CD-14) — a former bartender elected as member of the Democratic Socialists of America — might have been consulting with these extremist lunatics who have threatened to “burn the entire f**king thing down.”

Leftist Paul Blumenthal writing for the Huffington Post, and clearly suffering an anxiety disorder, hyperventilates over Trump’s second term, repeatedly using the words “nightmare scenario.”

As this 2016 map illustrates, American voters spoke loud and clear…rejecting scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton. President Donald Trump triumphed by wide margins, and has not only the duty, but the obligation to fill the current SCOTUS vacancy.

Left vow riots over filling SCOTUS vacancy; Marxist coup focused on 2020 election

September 20, 2020

The political left openly supports the rampaging mobs of radicals waging war on American cities, their citizens and our dedicated men and women who serve in law enforcement.

Now these contemptible thugs are not limiting their violence to inflicting serious bodily harm, looting, taking over city blocks, destroying national monuments and committing arson — carrying out more than $1 billion in property damage in the name of “social justice.” Breitbart reports they are also issuing warnings of rampant national destruction if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell moves forward with the orderly process to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court following the Friday death of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at age 87.

Living in a nation that celebrates liberty with a Constitution that enshrines our rights means nothing to these undereducated thugs, who have scant knowledge of America’s miraculous founding.

Iranian-born Reza Aslan, identified as an author, former CNN host and a professor, is also a virulent Trump-hater, using vulgarities in his twitter descriptions of the president. Aslan converted from Islam to evangelical Christianity and then back again to being a Muslim. His threatening screeds are also profanity-laced and aimed at Americans, who he warns will suffer if Ginsburg is replaced by President Trump.

If this promise of grand scale national chaos regarding the president’s right to fill a Supreme Court vacancy isn’t enough, the anarchists and their partners in the Democrat party are pushing an unrestrained assault against the American election system, as Gateway Pundit underscores in this morning’s post,MUST SEE VIDEO: Catherine Engelbrecht and the Prestigious TRUE THE VOTE Organization Release Powerful Warning on the Marxist Coup in 2020.”

None of us can be too busy not to carve out time to view these three crucial links. America’s future and those of our families depends on us being fully informed as the emboldened radical left is intent on obliterating our way of life.

Is it possible to break a moral compass that doesn’t exist?

September 17, 2020

When columnists have been featured on this site, they are reserved for weekend reading. Dennis Prager’s recent column,The Left’s Moral Compass Isn’t Broken,” one of the most instructive you’ll read, deserves prominence.

We are facing the most important election of our lifetimes — Nov. 3, 2020 —  just 47 days from today. The concept of honesty has vanished from the lexicon of the left. Democrats have turned fiction into fact and truth into a vague memory. They are willing to ignore the destruction of cities and spiraling criminality, including the maiming and deaths of law enforcement officers, whose departments they now want to defund and dismantle.

The Democrat presidential candidate, Joe Biden, a nearly 50-year D.C. political insider, is failing and unable to speak coherently without a teleprompter, and even then, frequently blunders. He refers to the ticket on which he and his running mate, Kamala Harris — selected solely based on her race and gender — as the “Harris-Biden ticket,” forgetting he is the one attempting to challenge President Donald Trump, who has kept his promises to the American people.

We grew up thinking there were two major political parties…Republicans and Democrats. That is no longer the case. Today’s Democrats are yesterday’s Socialists who we fought WWII to eradicate. Those Democrats of the Depression and WWII years, who reelected Franklin Delano Roosevelt to four consecutive terms (1933-1945) were ultimately constrained in 1947 by the Twenty-Second Amendment (ratified in 1951), which prohibited more than two four-year terms in office. This historical footnote is crucial in remembering Democrats have a history of being predisposed to misappropriate power.

There is an important biblical message for Trump supporting activists to take to heart as we head into the waning days of this election cycle, “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.”

Drop the leftist AZ Republic: Why pay to be insulted?

September 12, 2020

Skewed, manipulated and fabricated “news” is no news at all

The toxic Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic is not only in a state of financial desperation, it is also rife with misinformation, interspersed with grammatical, spelling and factual errors. These days the staff of the displaced and recently sold newspaper is mostly composed of ASU Journalism school students, lacking editors and content with a byline. Remaining employees have voted to unionize.

Hemorrhaging readers due to the ongoing venom spew aimed at President Trump, Republican office holders and candidates, deceit is its driving force, with no effort at balanced reporting. In the wake of the nationwide BLM riots, the newspaper sides with the radical, destructive mobs who push defunding and disbanding the police.

Intimidation is rampant. The Daily Wire headlines its recent reportRochester Officers Cover Names After Protesters Shout Their Addresses, Kids’ Names, Make Taunting Calls To Parents In Front Of Them.” They were described as “peaceful protesters” in the local media. This week Rochester, NY native and Police Chief La’Ron D. Singletary, who is black, along with his entire RPD command staff announced their resignations. The city’s mayor Lovely A. Warren and the majority of council members are also black, proof that nothing calms the violent thugs.

Greg Burton, the AZ Republic’s editor-in-chief concentrates on promoting diversity based on ethnicity and gender, but never of thought. He normalizes the abnormal with promotion of “non-binary and transgender” actors, who we are advised, prefer “they/them pronouns.” The far-left newspaper which now focuses on blacks, has long been bonded to the astronomically costly flood of illegal aliens — which the newspaper mischaracterizes as “immigrants” — breaching our border, as Kristin Tate pointed out in The Hill. It’s a good bet these groups aren’t subscribers. The point is propagandizing the rest of us.

Conservative views are unwelcome. Columnist EJ Montini, as emaciated as the shriveled newspaper, exemplifies an image of being consumed by hatred. His interchangeable cohort Laurie Roberts, formerly relegated to sob stories, has now metastasized into full blown loathing aimed at conservatives in general and Pres. Trump in particular.

Save your money. The overpriced Arizona Republic averages a yearly subscription rate of nearly $500. There are better ways to spend money than paying to have your intelligence insulted.

RNC Night 3: Pres. Trump acclaimed by powerful, diverse speakers

August 27, 2020

Wednesday night’s theme “Land of Opportunity,” couldn’t have been more fitting. The opening prayer was offered by Rabbi Aryeh Spero, a dedicated supporter of Pres. Donald J. Trump.

Vice President Mike Pence, Second Lady Karen Pence, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, Kellyanne Conway, Keith Kellogg, Jack Brewer, Madison Cawthorn, Scott Dane, Clarence Henderson, Ryan Holets, Michael McHale, Burgess Owens, and Lara Trump all spoke fervently in support of the president.

The impressive list of speakers included numerous women, including one who was unknown and another we are accustomed to seeing at press conferences, who stunned with her personal story.

Sister Dede Byrne, is a surgeon, who served as a Colonel in the U.S. Army Medical Corps and ultimately as a nun with Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts, all the while providing medical care. Her appearance at the GOP Convention on behalf of pro-life President Trump, added a compelling dimension to the list of speakers that included political and sports leaders.

We know Kayleigh McEnany as the White House press secretary and Harvard Law School graduate, but didn’t expect the personal story she shared.

Juxtapose the insights and profound commitment these distinct voices bring in their support for Pres. Donald Trump’s reelection against the fact that Joe Biden, first elected in 1970, has accomplished nothing other than advocating for bigger government, higher taxes, echoing the BLM mantra of defunding the police and less freedom. Biden, who often appears incoherent, remains silent on the rioters, looters, arsonists and murderers destroying lives and American cities. He has repeatedly offended black Americans, most recently with his noxiously insulting statement, “If you vote for Trump,you ain’t black.” Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones, a black, lifelong Democrat, speaking in support of Pres. Trump, disagrees with Biden.

Arizonans Republicans are all too familiar with political duplicity, and pay it little heed. Jeff Flake, a single-term U.S. Senator came out against Pres. Trump and saw his own approval numbers plummet to 18%, causing him to abandon his reelection campaign. The aptly named Flake, hungry for attention, has no constituency other than his own flakey has-been echo chamber, as detailed in this Daily Caller article.

Businessman Donald Trump ran for the presidency and was elected over a career politician in 2016. With our help, he’ll do it again.

VP Pence visits AZ; Montini develops sex-based amnesia

August 12, 2020

Visceral hatred of Pres. Trump obscures Pence’s uplifting message of myriad successes

Republican Vice President Mike Pence generated enthusiastic crowds in support of President Donald Trump‘s successes during his visit to faith-based Arizona voters Tuesday, but the local newspaper’s coverage focused on Democrat Joe Biden’s selection of a running mate.

Deceit runs rampant at the Arizona Republic. Though the newspaper endorsed Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump was victorious in 2016, winning 306 Electoral votes to scandal-plagued Hillary’s 232. The newspaper and its political henchmen have never recovered.

Americans will remember Hillary going to the mat to defend her philandering husband, Bill, doing whatever it took to insure their political viability. Her unique challenge began in 1992 with this “60 Minutes” interview in which, affecting a soft southern accent, she invoked country music star Tammy Wynette’s “Stand by your man,” after newscaster Gennifer Flowers revealed her 12-year romance with Bill Clinton. An infuriated Wynette called Hillary “an enabler.”

Bill Clinton has been publicly accused of rape and sexual assault by numerous women, including Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Leslie Millwee. Rather than going under oath again and testifying about his sexual history, Clinton agreed to an out-of-court settlement, paying Jones and her lawyers $850,000 to drop a subsequent lawsuit.

Far-left feminists raced to his defense blaming the women. The View, co-host Joy Behar referred to Bill Clinton’s accusers as “tramps,” later apologizing after blowback. In an NYT’s editorial former feminist icon Gloria Steinem foolishly wrote of Willey and Jones, “Mr. Clinton seems to have made clumsy sexual passes, then accepted rejection.” 

James Carville, Clinton’s campaign strategist and longtime friend was so enraged with the women who accused the president, he demeaned them, saying, “You drag $100 bills through trailer parks, there’s no tellin’ what you’ll find. I know these people (the accusers). I went to school with ’em. I necked with ’em in backseats. I spent nights with ’em.”

Hillary’s defense of Bill’s infidelities continued before and after it was revealed he had an ongoing affair in the Oval Office with a young White House intern, Monica Lewinsky. The revelations, and his obstruction of justice, perjury and suborning perjury led to his impeachment in 1998. He later claimed the affair “controlled (his) anxieties.” There were other such revelations, but Hillary and Bill put their political priorities in the driver’s seat.

This old news becomes relevant as the newspaper’s dilapidated columnist EJ Montini, covers Vice President Pence‘s Arizona trip. Montini’s headline?:

“VP Mike Pence brings his ‘Ignore the Adultery (and Other Sins)’ tour to Arizona.”

Montini isn’t inferring Pence has done anything untoward, It’s all negativity aimed at President Trump. That this tripe constitutes news is why the newspaper has the lowest circulation of all of the papers in the Gannett chain. The once reliable Arizona Republic has sunken below tabloid status which partially accounts for its lack of readership. In 2020, news is instantaneous, available on a wide variety of platforms and free. Keeping Montini on the payroll is a foolish expenditure on many levels. Furloughing columnist Karina Bland as a cost cutting measure her columns are replaced by recycled ones from Clay Thompson who died in 2018. The failing newspaper should replace Montini with former archived columns of Don Dedera.

Beware the AZ Republic’s skewed election coverage

August 10, 2020

The far-left Arizona Republic has been engaging in post-Primary Election quarterbacking. In the process, the newspaper that supposedly swore off of endorsements, sounds as if it is an official arm of the Democrat party, as it assesses the election results.

Expectations of neutrality are folly. Although the endorsement pages are pragmatically shelved, there is no doubt who is, none too subtly, being pushed. There is anguish spilling forth from the pages when Democrats lose, sloppy anticipation when they come within spitting distance of Republicans and unconcealed glee when they win.

This morning’s editorial foolishly attempts to neutralize Democrat Sheriff Paul Penzone with the ridiculous headline, “Penzone pushes back on radical left,” slickly opining, “He may be a Democrat but he does not support the radical left.” Those who pay attention remember all too well newly elected Penzone’s greeting to illegal aliens, referring to them as “guests.” As he campaigned in 2016 his leftist law enforcement policies were bankrolled with $2 million gifted by Socialist George Soros who deplores national borders, and vowed to reconfigure the criminal justice system.

The newspaper relies on it’s deceptive “may, could, might” headlines, exemplified by, “Primary results may create challenges for Republicans’ hold on power in the Arizona Legislature.” Then again, they may not.

Emaciated, radical writer EJ Montini headlined his recent column, “Ballot isn’t McSally vs. Kelly; it’s Trump vs. not-Trump.” This is the Hillary endorsing, Trump-hating, seriously declining newspaper’s futile attempt at throwing a jab. His counterpart, Laurie Roberts, headlined her anti-Republican spew, “7 debates? Oh, yeah, McSally is worried.”

Sen. Martha McSally, endorsed by Pres. Trump, is a former two-term member of congress. An honors graduate of the Air Force Academy, she retired as an Air Force Colonel, following her impressive career which included being the first female pilot to command a fighter squadron in a war zone.

Democrat challenger, Mark Kelly has been deeply involved with Communist China since retiring from the Navy, making $millions through nefarious dealings.

His commercials neglect to mention his desire to restrict our Second Amendment rights through Giffords PAC a hybrid super PAC and Giffords a 501C Carey PAC,* which spent nearly $7 million to aid Democrat congressional candidates in 2018.

Kelly claims he is rejecting corporate PAC money, but has no problem taking money from Socialist multi-billionaire George Soros’ ActBlue, which has hosted DC fundraisers for him and continually hustles on Kelly’s behalf online. He congratulated his friend and then-president Barack Obama on his restrictive firearm legislation, saying, “…And that’s why the steps Pres. Barack Obama announced this week to narrow some of the loopholes in our gun background check system are so responsible: They help keep guns out of the wrong hands.”

Who decides whose hands are “wrong”?

Kelly’s wife, former AZ Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, has recently endorsed seriously declining Joe Biden for President, saying, “We deserve a president who listens to the American people, not the NRA.”

Biblically based wisdom and Nov. 2020’s political choices

August 9, 2020

Comparing the policies of Republicans and Democrats within a religious context

On Saturday, one of our commenters, VINOAZ, included a link to a Townhall column that describes why it is imperative for Republicans to reelect President Trump this coming November.

The column, worthy of today’s stand alone post is titled,Letter to an Anti-Trump Christian Friend,” by Wayne Grudem, PhD, an author and Research Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies at Phoenix Seminary in Arizona. Dr. Grudem’s complete biography and links to his books and other articles can be read here.

Don’t be deterred by the Townhall’s article’s length since much of it is attributable to excessive spacing, over which we have no control. You won’t regret taking the time to read this excellent commentary which includes a link to his List of 25 Good Things President Trump Has Done For America. Both are definitely apropos for Sunday.

Dem platform demonizes “whites,” elevates BLM

July 30, 2020

Democrats are busy drafting their party’s national platform in advance of the August 17 – 20, 2020 Milwaukee convention. Politico has published the draft version that is bound to shock White leftists and high dollar donors who think they are integral to their party. It begins by paying homage to the Tribal Nations who are described as the stewards of the indigenous homelands known as Wisconsin.

Rather than offering substance, President Donald Trump and his administration are blasted throughout the 80-page document. The President of the United States is referred to as a “crass, craven and corrupt leader.” Pushing Socialist George Soros’ ideal of “Criminal Justice Reform,” there is no crime too heinous to be worthy of what they call “unjust sentences.” It is doubtless the first party platform to specifically mention “transgender and non-binary people” and specifically “Black transgender women.” The platform supports “Black Lives Matter,” which is tantamount to endorsing the criminality and violence that has overtaken American cities.

Dems not only support abortion “rights,” but also Second Amendment restrictions. Their platform includes the stated “belief” that “gun companies should be held responsible for their products, just like any other business, and will prioritize repealing the law that shields gun manufacturers from civil liability.”

Paul Bedard, “Washington Secrets” columnist for the Washington Examiner, titles his column, “Democratic National Committee platform mentions ‘whites’ 15 times, all damning.” It’s a must read and especially clarifying for those, like every family’s doddering Uncle Walt, who mistakenly think there’s not much difference between the two parties.

Bedard notes “whites are mentioned 15 times, all critical, including three references to white supremacy or supremacists and one to white nationalists. The document doesn’t capitalize white as it does Black, Latinos, Asian Americans, and Native Americans.” In a numbered list he details the negative references to whites.

For a memory jogger Seeing Red AZ gifts our readers with a post containing the shocking video from the 2012 Democrat National Convention, which we titled,Chaos reigns as Dems boo God, Jeer Jerusalem.” Both the post and the embedded video are brief but serve as stark reminders of not only who the Democrats are, but how the embarrassed party leadership had to manipulate the vote on the passage of the platform following three votes and were loudly denounced by the delegates.

Devolving America: Rioters ignored by law enforcement

July 24, 2020

Michelle Malkin is a resolute conservative with numerous credentials, including political commentator, author and columnist. In the days when the increasingly radical and now hemorrhaging subscriptions Arizona Republic had an op-ed page, her columns, those of Thomas Sowell, Cal Thomas and other rational thinkers were a welcome relief from the increasing onslaught of uni-view leftist spew.

Prophetically, in 2009, Thomas wrote, “We will get more of what we tolerate.”

Last Sunday, Malkin was a featured speaker at a Police Appreciation Day “Back the Blue” rally at the Denver Civic Center in her home state of Colorado. Leftist antifa thugs stormed the stage, assaulting her and others who assembled in support of the police. Malkin, whose parents immigrated from the Philippines, was bizarrely called a “white supremacist.”

The pro-law enforcement sentiment was not returned as a retreat order was issued and no arrests were made. Anti-American goons increasingly have the upper hand across America as chaos reigns in Democrat-led cities. Private property is destroyed, historic monuments are toppled, while continually escalating mob violence and looting become routine.

Police Chief Paul Pazen, who previously linked arms and marched with BLM hoodlums, actually asked the pro-police organizers to reschedule or move the rally and provide their own security. Pazen has overseen antifa assaults on 76 Denver officers and $millions worth of damage.

This first-rate editorial titled,Denver Police Chief Paul Pazen needs to resign or be fired now,” provides clarifying facts.

Malkin’s spot on assessment is contained in these cogent words, “The toxic combination of “pandemic panic” and “George Floyd derangement syndrome” has thoroughly destroyed the home of the brave. It is a paradise for the depraved and dictatorial.”

Malkin’s column describing the Sunday afternoon debacle is titled,One Nation Under Anarcho-Tyranny.” It’s tough, but necessary reading. Knowledge is power.
