Tired of wuss candidates? Steve Ferrara is anything but…

October 19, 2018

A serious candidate with humorous friends

Dr. Steve Ferrara is the conservative running for the U.S. House of Representatives in Congressional District 9. The seat in Arizona’s newest district, created in 2012, has been held by far leftist Kyrsten Sinema, who is now seeking a U.S. Senate post. Seeing Red AZ supports Martha McSally in that race that holds enormous national Implications. A Democrat majority senate would effectively shut down further Federal and Supreme Court appointments made by President Trump, holding him hostage to their political machinations.

Republican Ferrara, new to the political arena, has led a life of remarkable accomplishments. He is facing far left, union-supported former Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, after handily beating his two GOP primary challengers. 

Democrat Stanton, a known tyrant who callously disregards the voices of city residents, pulled a costly fast one as he exited the mayor’s office, ensuring votes from the La Raza open borders crowd, by gifting them $2.4 million in taxpayer funds.

Known for supporting unpopular issues, Stanton even lied about lifting the oppressive food tax as he gave large “retention bonuses” to city employees. When first elected in 2011, he received a congratulatory call from the overjoyed duo, Barack Obama and his Homeland Security chieftain Janet Napolitano.

Despite Dr. Ferrara’s stellar background, a supportive group, “Americans for Badasses in Congress,” are not without a sense of humor as evidenced by this hilarious video declaring him a “badass.” You’ll like him even better after viewing it.  A sense of humor is a saving grace for those who enter the political minefield. This man, a decorated navy veteran and medical doctor, is definitely up to the task. The rest of us are fortunate to have him step forward to tackle issues of importance on our behalf.

Congressional District 9 cuts a swath through central Phoenix making its way through Tempe and south Scottsdale, west Mesa, northwestern Chandler and areas of southeast Phoenix including Ahwatukee. (Map)

Message to Congressional District 9 voters: Remember to vote for Steve Ferrara. It matters.

Untrustworthy Flake hit with damning Biblical analogy

October 4, 2018

…sans 30 pieces of silver

Jeff Flake, Arizona’s “on the skids” senator, has reached the final stage of his political career. Responding in the only way possible to an unprecedented, abysmal 18 percent approval rating in his home state following his first senate term, he took the path of least resistance and didn’t run for reelection. 

Unfortunately, pretentious Flake has neither the refinement nor wisdom to leave quietly. Those character traits are not ingrained in the persona of a man who camped alone on a deserted island in 2011 as an excuse to send out shirtless beefcake photos of himself. The now fawning, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic was not always such a Flake fan. It referred to him asa coward,“ anda mere politician, no longer a statesman,” when he disappointed them by reversing his stance on amnesty for illegal aliens during a U.S. House campaign. The newspaper needn’t have worried. It was just election based rhetoric that he tossed aside after the votes were counted.

Fast forward to 2018. Now possessed by a virulent anti-Trump mania, Flake is using his remaining time in D.C. fanning the flames set by his Democrat cohorts who are doing everything in their power to derail the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.  When there was nothing of substance to use against the respected federal appellate judge, Christine Blasey Ford, a-less-than-truthful witness sprang forth with allegations dating back nearly 40 years to their high school days. Though she has been caught lying (i.e., her fear of flying was found to be bogus), her memory is fuzzy and no one has corroborated her new-found memories, she has Jeff Flake joining the Democrats, to keep picking at this festering boil.

Make no mistake. What we are witnessing is raw political warfare intended to deny Pres. Trump another appointment to the Supreme Court. In 2016, Flake and McCain both stated they would not vote for GOP nominee Donald Trump.

One of the best assessments of the debacle, is titled,GOP‘s Judas,” by Clarence V. McKee for Newsmax. He nails Flake — as a modern-day Judas Iscariot — who didn’t even get his “thirty pieces of silver” for selling out the GOP Judiciary Committee and Senate colleagues.

This morning, the Senate began reviewing the FBI’s completed report on the allegations.


SCOTUS circus begins at 7am, AZ time

September 27, 2018

By tuning in to the YouTube live stream to watch the preposterous circus rather than what should be a dignified confirmation hearing of presidential Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, you can perpetuate the sham by driving up ratings.

If you must, the hearing is scheduled to begin at 7:00 am AZ time (10:00 am ET).

The 2018 U.S. Supreme Court term begins Monday, October 1, 2018. The Democrat’s delaying tactics are focused on that date and doing whatever is humanly possible to keep Judge Brett Kavanaugh from being seated with those who should be his colleagues. As we previously noted, this process is steeped in left-wing politics and the desire to deny President Donald Trump another appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Edith Roberts, writing for the SCOTUS blog, provided a solid summary of the run-up to today’s events in Wednesday’s Round-up.


AZ US Rep. Paul Gosar’s siblings from hell

September 22, 2018

Congressman’s dysfunctional siblings campaign for liberal challenger

When it comes to having strong conservative values, there are few who meet the test as does Arizona’s 4th Congressional District U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar. The dentist who went to Washington in 2011 is well respected, not only among the Republicans in his district, but those throughout the state. Scroll down to the bottom of his bio link above to see the many high ratings he has earned.

Deplorably Paul Gosar has been set upon by 6 of his 10 siblings who are urging support of his Democrat challenger. They give new meaning to the “own kin” portion of these words of Jesus cited in Mark 6:4: “A prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.”

Among the 10 kids in his family there are 7 Democrats (six of whom appear in the ad shilling for his Democrat opponent), 2 Republicans and 1 Independent.

As adults, we know actual families are not what many of us saw portrayed in idyllic family sitcoms of the past. None of our mothers cooked dinner wearing heels and pearl necklaces nor did we have dads who never appeared to have a real job outside of dispensing one-liner advice or sitting in the living room reading the newspaper until the family gathered around the dinner table when summoned by the perfectly coiffed and soft-spoken mom wearing a spotless ruffled apron over a lovely frock.

Still, it’s creepy that the out-of-state siblings of Congressman Gosar are so envious of his many successes that they have cut a campaign ad against him, dishonestly accusing him of “racism” for acknowledging there is an illegal immigration crisis in the United States that requires securing our border and enforcement of our laws.

In a spot ludicrously titled, “A family defends its honor,” Gosar’s left-wing siblings shamefully endorse their brother’s Democrat challenger.

SRAZ would usually provide a link to the commercial, but this cringe-worthy one showing a pathetically dysfunctional family offers nothing more than a guarantee of a skin crawling experience.

For those Arizonans fortunate enough to have Paul Gosar represent them, (map of the extensive district), we urge you to vote to retain this good and effective man. 


Jeff Flake outed as a “Traitor”

September 18, 2018

Arizona Republicans who have firsthand knowledge of the deceptive tactics employed by lame duck Sen. Jeff Flake, will find this post that uses the words,Jeff Flake, Traitor,” as its headline an irresistible must read.

John Hinderaker, one of several attorneys writing for Powerline employs some other choice adjectives for Republicrat Flake, along with describing what he rightly identifies as Flake’s “insane hatred for President Trump,” as the driving force behind his alignment with the Democrat members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Their objective is to scuttle Trump’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Describing Flake’s reprehensible antics as they relate to Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Hinderaker states, “Rarely have I witnessed anything so disgusting in the world of politics.”

Despite rightly declaring Flake “should be ashamed of himself,” the author clings to the hope that Jeff Flake would put his spitefulness in check between now and Thursday, when the Judiciary Committee vote is scheduled to be held.

We would caution him not to hold his breath.

Hinderaker calls Flake out as a never-Trumper and castigates him for elevating “his hatred for our president over every principle of politics and public policy.” He further notes. “Flake would rather subvert his own allegedly conservative principles than allow President Trump to exercise his constitutional powers as president. Words can hardly express how contemptible this is.”

“Allegedly conservative principles” are key words. As an example, there were no conservative principles displayed on the Gang of Eight amnesty scheme orchestrated by Jeff Flake and John McCain in which they colluded with leftists Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with reliable squishes Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Marco Rubio (R-FL). The concerted effort that would ultimately have increased the ranks of the Democrat Party, rendering Republicans to Whig Party status, was not an endeavor undertaken by principled conservatives.

The only line in his otherwise well-argued column that reveals Hinderaker as a Minnesotan rather than an Arizonan is including Flake among others for whom he “once had considerable respect.” Those of us who are not 1700 miles away have long known flaky Flake as a practiced liar, going back to his reneging on his original term limits pledge made when he ran for the U.S. House in 2000.  When called out on his deception, he displayed his notorious smirk and wisecracked, “I lied.” That was one of the few truths the McCain clone has told.


AZ tax cheat admits guilt: aided illegals filing fake claims

September 7, 2018

The daily newspaper reports that according to court records, Elias Bermudez has pleaded guilty to preparing false tax returns. The open borders newspaper blandly refers to him as an “Arizona immigrant-rights activist.” 

Investigative reporter Linda Bentley, writing for the Sonoran News covered Bermudez’ indictment in October 2017. Her comprehensive report covers specifics relating to the crime and penalties a conviction carries. 

Bermudez, founder of the deceptively titled, Immigrants Without Borders and owner of El Centro de Ayuda (The Help Center), was indicted on 27 counts of aiding in the preparation of false tax returns. He is accused of advising clients to claim unqualified dependents living in Mexico in order to gain $1,000 Child Tax Credit deductions per child.

Bermudez also operates El Centro de Progreso tax preparation in Phoenix and Tucson.

This shocking exposé  (video also follows post) by Indiana TV 13 is from 2013, but obviously our south of the border neighbors, are still honing their fraudulent schemes, using phony documents and false income to claim tax credits for children who do not live in the United States and are not even children of the filers. The reporter detailed that that the cost to American citizen taxpayers was $4.2 billion yearly, involving 2 million unqualified illegals getting massive tax credits. Those numbers have undoubtedly increased in the five years since this report was filed. The newscaster reports the IRS is aware of the enormous loophole, but the agency claims congress needs to address it.

This astronomically priced fraud should be a major concern of Arizona U.S. Congressmen Raul Grajalva (D-CD3) and Ruben Gallego (D-CD 7), who both represent Hispanic heavy districts. They have been silent on the subject, as has Democrat gubernatorial candidate David Garcia. It’s time for the Republicans to boldly take on this outrageous scam. We elected them to represent us. That includes protecting our hard-earned tax dollars.


America‘s actual “Man of the Hour”

September 1, 2018

Americans who strive to stay abreast of the news might be under the impression that the endless coverage of a man they haven’t seen in a year and won’t see again, but who continues to dominate media attention, is the “Man of the Hour.”

In fact, there is another, currently lesser known man, who has the potential to have a far greater impact on all of our lives for decades to come. His name is Brett Kavanaugh. Nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court on July 9, by President Trump, the 53-year-old Circuit Court Judge will be appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee this coming Tuesday, Sept. 4.

The Heritage Foundation gives us a heads up on what we can anticipate. Take four minutes to read, What to Expect in Kavanaugh’s Senate Hearings,by Thomas Jipping, Deputy Director of the Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies and a Senior Legal Fellow.

You’ll be better informed as this vitally important, though partisan process, plays out before the Senate Judiciary Committee (click link for members). Count on the Democrats to be playing to their increasingly radical left-wing base as the mid-term elections approach.

This vacancy was created by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, a Reagan appointee, who was confirmed to the court in February 1988 by a vote of 97-0.  Don’t expect such an effusive endorsement to be repeated in 2018, when liberal rancor against President Donald Trump is not only palpable, but at a fever pitch.
