Greg Stanton pulls a costly fast one exiting as Phx. mayor

May 25, 2018

Judicial Watch, whose motto is “Because no one is above the law,” is an principled, conservative watchdog group that fights for accountability and integrity in law, politics and government. JW also has a blog, Corruption Chronicles.

Corruption Chronicles runs a must read report on the contemptible excesses of Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, who has stepped down prior to the end of his term to run for the U.S. House in Arizona’s CD 9. The report is titled,Phoenix Mayor Gives La Raza Ally $2.4 Mil Before Leaving to Run for Congress. It is an important exposé that CD 9 voters need to acquaint themselves with prior to the Aug. 28 Primary and Nov. 6, 2018 General Elections. It contains just five paragraphs that should not be overlooked

For an idea of where Stanton stands politically, when he was initially elected in 2011, then President Barack Obama and Homeland INsecurity chieftain Janet Napolitano jointly called with congratulatory wishes.

 A bit of history: In 2005, Kyrsten Sinema, a committed pro-abortion and open-borders advocate, lost her initial state legislative race as a Green Party candidate. The lawyer, social worker and self-proclaimed bi-sexual then set out re-crafting herself as a Democrat and was elected to the state legislature. She ran and won in the newly created CD 9 based on the results of the 2010 Census. The district has been represented by chameleon Kyrsten Sinema, who has improbably transformed herself from a crude, foul mouthed, leftist partisan to a soft spoken, stylish U.S. Senate candidate.

Sinema no longer heralds her ties to the Communist Party, bi-sexuality, open borders, abortion or strong allegiance to atheism, which led her to refuse to take her oath of office with her hand on a Bible. Seth Leibsohn is the GOP candidate to support.

Jeff Flake, whose relentless Trump bashing left him polling at 18%, is not running for reelection and Sinema is hoping to nab that senate seat. The conservative choice is Dr. Kelli Ward. The political musical chairs now place liberal Stanton, who previously announced for Secretary of State, abandoning that venture and opting for the CD 9 seat Sinema is leaving.

Democrat Vice Mayor Laura Pastor, daughter of liberal former CD 7 Congressman Ed Pastor, will assume the role of acting mayor. Pastor, Councilman Daniel Valenzuela and Councilwoman Kate Gallego — all liberal Democrats — have announced their intentions to run for the city‘s top job. Unknown entity Moses Sanchez, a navy veteran and teacher, has announced as the sole Republican mayoral candidate, though his fact deficient website neglects to mention the word “Republican,” or any GOP involvement.

Arizona voters will need a scorecard to keep up with the ambitious, reconfigured Democrats and their desires to take over the city of Phoenix and encroach on D.C. in the Senate and House. This is serious business with potentially long-lasting and dire consequences. Pay attention and vote on information, not slick campaign ads.

Republicrats align with Dems on amnesty bills

May 16, 2018

Invaders have unlikely friends in high places

While they think that Americans aren’t paying attention, eighteen Republican members of congress have signed a “discharge petition” in an effort to bring numerous liberal immigration bills to the floor for a vote. In doing so, they are intentionally defying President Trump and House leadership, while weakening GOP unity and demoralizing the base of GOP voters prior to the upcoming midterm elections.

Their motivation remains murky.

One of the bills in the package will grant full amnesty to those given DACA status by Barack Obama, even as he repeatedly stated he was legally unable to force such actions. 

The outrageous effort is being shepherded by Reps. Carlos Curbelo (FL) and Jeff Denham (CA). Charlie Dent (PA), will have his signature count despite the fact he resigned from Congress this month. View the complete list of signers of H.Res. 774 – “Providing for consideration of the bill (H.R. 4760) to amend the immigration laws and the homeland security laws, and for other purposes,” Yes. That’s the brassy and vague title. Good luck trying to find the actual text.

The discharge petition process is normally used by the minority party to force votes the majority won’t allow, making it all the more bizarre that Republicans who still hold the majority are pushing this legislation in tandem with the most liberal Democrats.

Donald Trump won the GOP nomination over 16 other Republican primary challengers — based in large measure on his commitment to securing our border and building a wall. This is clearly what the majority of American citizens want.

The 7th District Dent represented is currently a top Democrat target, especially after it became more competitive under the new congressional map imposed by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The court threw out the old map in January, ruling it was an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander. This is their 138-page opinion. The justices are elected on partisan ballots and serve ten-year terms. Only two of the seven justices — Chief Justice Thomas G. Saylor and Associate Justice Sallie Updyke Munday — are Republicans.

The Sanctuary State of California has become Ground Zero for illegal aliens. They are welcomed  by Gov. Jerry Brown, though the citizens have had their fill.  A recent poll shows a majority of Californians want more deportations as their state devolves into what author Victor Davis Hanson so aptly named “Mexifornia,” in his visionary 2003 book,

In 2007 writing for City Journal, Hanson wrote this bleak assessment, “Mexifornia, Five Years Later.” Do yourself a favor and read it.  We have just been warned by the organizers of the last “caravan” of illiterate and unskilled Central Americans, who blatantly disrespect the United States, that they are replicating their last invasion effort, aided and abetted by Mexico, which allowed them safe passage on their way to the United States.

The leftwing local newspaper softly refers to the invaders asmigrants” and “asylum-seekers.


Happy Mother’s Day & a Kyrsten Sinema memory jogger

May 13, 2018

Kyrsten Sinema: Stay at home Moms are leeches

Yes, the seemingly disparate topics are actually related. Kyrsten Sinema, a first term Democrat Congresswoman representing Arizona’s CD 9 — now a candidate for U.S. Senate — has had some harsh words for women who devote themselves to their families.

This Sept. 5, 2012 post,Kyrsten Sinema: Far-left radical AZ CD 9 Dem exposed,” includes the quote from the now re-crafted, soft-spoken Sinema, who no longer heralds her ties to the Communist Party, bi-sexuality or strong allegiance to atheism, which led her to refuse to take her oath of office with her hand on a Bible.

Pay attention to her ubiquitous ads, interestingly running on Fox News to garner support of those who aren’t familiar with who she actually is. Sinema is well funded by desperate liberals salivating at the prospect of capturing an Arizona U.S. Senate seat. According to her latest FEC reports, she’s already raised $6,552,764.22.         

In her ads, Sinema slickly omits any reference to her Democrat party affiliation or her close association with Barack Obama, which she definitely wants red state Arizona voters to forget —- especially the growing number of registered Independents.

Sinema’s quote about stay-at-home mothers was so shocking, it was even called out aspersistent verbal flubberyby none other than far-left extremist Phoenix New Times former columnist, Stephen Lemons.

This is excerpted from the SRAZ  post:
An ardent supporter of same-sex marriage, she mockingly blasted women who devote themselves to their families rather than working outside the home. Her foul-mouthed comment was: “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f**k are we really talking about here?” Following the spirit of unity Dems claim to embrace, Sinema derided conservatives as “Neanderthals.”

Kyrsten Sinema’s 2016 Congressional primary victory was enthusiastically  cheered by the Advocate, a LGBT site, praising her for “moving one step closer to being the first openly bisexual member of Congress.” She now occupies that congressional seat.  Don’t be fooled into surrendering a senate seat to this candidate whose extreme views represent few Arizonans.

The importance of senate seats cannot be overstated since U.S. Supreme Court nominees are confirmed by the senate. There are currently two of the nine justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg (DOB: 3/15/33)  and Anthony Kennedy, (DOB: 7/23/36), who are in their 80’s and another, Stephen Breyer, (DOB: 8/15/38) who will join the octogenarian crowd in August. Two of the current justices were Obama appointees and two were named by Clinton.

President Trump appointed conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch to the high court in April 2017. He will face fierce opposition from Senate Democrats when future SOTUS vacancies occur. 

The repackaged Kyrsten Sinema is dangerous. It cannot be stressed enough that the consequences of electing her will be dire.

Seeing Red AZ enthusiastically supports Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate. Your donations will help her stay competitive against the out-of-state money funding Leftist Sinema.


Lesko’s AZ CD8 victory? You can’t believe your lyin’ eyes

April 26, 2018

Dejected Arizona Republic skews the news….again

Dang! We thought Republican Debbie Lesko won the AZ Congressional District 8 Special Election Tuesday night. We watched as the votes were tallied, and saw the broad smile on former Arizona Senate President Pro-Tempore Debbie Lesko’s face as her hand was held aloft by former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer. We saw Lesko plant a smooch on her husband, and joyfully introduce her son and daughter.  We even thought we heard cheers and applause. Apparently it was all a wishful apparition.

According to the Arizona Republic newspaper, what we witnessed was a post mortem. Those cheers were wails, as mourning Republicans realized the victory wasn’t decisive enough.  Leftwing reporters Yvonne Wingett Sanchez and Ronald Hansen, called it “lackluster and tepid“ and termed what we thought was a victory, “a wake up call.”

The article doesn’t mention the fact that liberal Democrat challenger Hiral Tipirneni played fast and loose with the truth in campaign ads depicting her in scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck, at a patient’s bedside. In fact, she has not practiced medicine since 2007, after a serious medical malpractice charge was brought against her. In the intervening years she’s been a dedicated lobbyist for Obamacare.

To bolster its contention that Lesko’s win was less than a victory, the newspaper quoted a misguided Republican who voted for Tipirneni. It also quotes Arizona Democrat Party Chair Felecia Rotellini, who knows a thing or two about losing elections. “The same chaos and dysfunction that we’re seeing in the Republican GOP in D.C. is reflected in Arizona’s GOP, (and) the lack of leadership, the lack of a platform that speaks to Arizona,” adding “the voters have awakened.”

Rotellini ran twice for Arizona Attorney General and though trounced by the Republican candidates in 2010 and 2014, she stubbornly waited days to concede her losses.

The elephant in the newsroom is Lesko’s unwavering support of President Donald Trump, called “broadly unpopular,” by the Hillary Clinton endorsing newspaper — which ignores his list of accomplishments and the wide range of support he enjoys among his loyalists.

This morning’s editorial oddly consists of a dialogue between the unhinged members of the editorial board and their shameless editor. They are unable to fathom the voter rejection of their Second Amendment restrictionist and pro-abortion supporter, who opposes actual border security. Tipirneni used verbal contortions in an attempt to carefully conceal the facts of her liberalism that is far out of step with the district and the editorial board is reeling.  They regard CD 8 voters as being easily duped.

If you still get skewed information from the Arizona Republic, let us give you the good news: Conservative Debbie Lesko, an unapologetic Trump supporting,  pro-Second Amendment and pro-life candidate who also stressed national and border security, support of our military, tax reform and parental choice in education, won!


AZ Special Election Congressional Dist. 8 results & more

April 24, 2018

 We’ve got what you’re looking for —  and the back story

Beginning at 8:00 pm tonight, the Secretary of State’s automatically updating election results can be viewed HERE.

Congressional District 8 has 455,660 registered voters, residing in 143 precincts within Maricopa County. The Republican stronghold district was previously represented by conservative Congressman Trent Franks, first elected in 2002.

Republican Debbie Lesko is running to replace him. A well respected pro-life legislative leader who supports President Donald Trump, she has served in both the Arizona House and Senate and was Senate President Pro-Tempore. Lesko has amassed an impressive list of endorsements.

Hiral Tipirneni is a liberal Democrat who has played fast and loose with the truth in campaign ads showing her in scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck, at a patient’s bedside. In fact, she has not practiced medicine since 2007, after a serious medical malpractice charge was brought against her.

“It’s disingenuous,” said Jack Pandol, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee. “Hiral wants voters to believe she’s something other than who she really is: a former physician sued for malpractice who turned to a cushy job making millions hawking Obamacare instead.” 

Philip Wegmann reporter for The Washington Examiner tweets Hiral Tipirneni’s deceit was outed by her Apple Watch, worn in the campaign ad. He writes, “Apple came out with the original watch in 2015.

Tipirneni hasn’t treated a patient since 2007.”

SRAZ is calling the race for Debbie Lesko by at least 10 points.

And the winnah is…..DEBBIE LESKO

With early ballots counted, Republican former state Senator Debbie Lesko has been declared the winner over Democrat challenger Hiral Tipirneni —-  proving baseless smear campaigns don’t resonate with knowledgeable voters.. Early ballots show Lesko carrying 52.9% of the vote to Tipirneni’s 47.1%.


Dr. Kelli Ward holds decisive lead in GOP senate poll

April 19, 2018

There’s good news being reported by ABC Channel 15. According to a poll the station jointly conducted with OHPI last week, the Arizona Senate race is shaking out for a conservative win.

After a single term of Republicrat Jeff Flake, who opted out of running for reelection due to an abysmal 18 percent approval rating, Arizona conservatives see a light at the end of the anti-Trump tunnel. Both current senators, McCain and Flake stated that neither they nor their families would support Donald Trump — who emerged victorious over 16 other GOP presidential primary candidates. Flake mounted an ongoing tirade against President Trump on liberal media and denounced him in the senate chamber.

The Republican senatorial field is not lacking candidates, but only one, Kelli Ward, a physician, principled conservative and former two-term state senator, presents a real choice. Martha McSally, known on this site as Sally McCain, is more of the same.

 Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, has been a conservative star, but will be 86 by Election Day, making his run for a six-year term disconcerting even to his diehard supporters.

Arizonans have endured decades of liberals masquerading as Republicans. deceiving voters as they campaign, only to reveal their true blue personas once elected. This is amnesty supporting John McCain at his lying pinnacle. Jeff Flake also cloaked himself as a conservative when in campaign mode, much to the dismay of the liberal newspaper which needn’t have worried about his campaign related duplicity.  Retired Sen. Jon Kyl pulled the same charade as he ran for his final senate term.

The poll results announced on the news report give Dr. Kelli Ward the decisive edge with 36%. Martha McSally fell far short with 27% and popular Joe Arpaio, now unfortunately taking the role of spoiler, held only 22%.

The winner of the GOP primary will face liberal Democrat Krysten Sinema a one-term CD 9 U.S. House member, who has deceptively softened her foul-mouthed image, but is still the former Green Party candidate who celebrated May Day with personal greetings in the People’s World Weekly Communist newspaper, compared women who stay home raising their families to leeches, defamed the military — which she now esteems — and revels in declaring herself the first openly bisexual, atheistic member of congress. To underscore the point, she refused to take her oath of office on a Bible.

Other good news centers on the polling numbers of President Trump. Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential polling shows him with a 50% approval rating, higher than Barack Obama’s 47% approval on the same date eight years ago –– in the second year of his presidency. Trump is winning with the American people,  despite continual leftwing media assaults.


Speaker Ryan fires parting amnesty shot at Americans

April 14, 2018

Remember when we were sold a bill of goods on wunderkind Paul Ryan? As Mitt Romney’s 2012 vice presidential running mate he was touted as a numbers cruncher extraordinaire who would bring a depth of knowledge and great insight to budget issues

With his recently announced plans to retire from Congress, few tears are being shed for the Wisconsin Representative who has spent two decades wallowing in the iffy realm of bipartisanship and accomplishing little. Conservatives view him less affectionately than liberals such as Washington state liberal Democrat Patti Murray with whom he co-authored a 2017 tax bill. Apparently he was unable to find a willing Republican Senate cosponsor.  As House Speaker, Ryan gave Donald Trump only begrudging support as the GOP presidential nominee, waffling along the way.

More egregious than Ryan’s enmity towards President Trump is his McCain-like aisle crossing to forge an amnesty scheme before he leaves Congress.  As his parting gift to America’s citizens, Ryan will push his open borders agenda during his last months in Congress, telling  media sources that he is interested in passing an amnesty for millions of illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for Obama’s self-admitted, illegitimately created (video) Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. “Childhood Arrivals” is a misnomer since there is no verification process.  The age limit is 36, ensuring more than a few are grandparents.

Breitbart News reports in a comment to Fox News’ Chad Pergram, Ryan said he would “certainly” be interested in passing a DACA amnesty before his term ends.

Ryan, who hypocritically had a fence constructed around his family estate, said that his main focus after passing a budget to keep the federal government open was to pass an amnesty for DACA illegal aliens, granting between 800,000 to 3.5 million permanent authority to stay in the U.S.

The aim of such an amnesty is ultimately rewarding illegal aliens enrolled in the program with a  pathway to U.S. citizenship, which comes with tremendous costs for American citizens. Such an amnesty would put more citizen children of illegal aliens — known as “anchor babies” — on federal welfare, while American taxpayers would be left with an estimated $26 billion bill.  Additionally, about one in five DACA illegal aliens, after an amnesty, would end up on food stamps, while at least one in seven would go on Medicaid.

The U.S. generously admits over one million legal immigrants a year —- often at the expense of American workers and students — as they compete for jobs and university placements. Ryan’s scheme would give amnestied illegal aliens the opportunity to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country, through a family reunification process known as chain migration.

A DACA amnesty will trigger a border surge that potentially triples the number of illegal aliens breaching our southern border. Since DACA’s inception, over 2,000 recipients of the program have been ejected due to criminal involvement or gang violence. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released this report detailing the extent of the gang surge last year.
