Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone’s jail drug crisis reaches epic proportions 

May 28, 2023

12News is once again reporting on the ongoing drug crisis occurring in the Maricopa County jails. This Feb.16, 2023 graphic report leaves little to the imagination.This April 7, 2023 report concerned seven female inmates now recovering after overdosing on fentanyl. Over 170 MCSO jail inmates were taken to the hospital for overdose or drug-related incidents in 2022.

Penzone, a democrat elected in 2016, weakly claims the type of drugs and how they were obtained is still under investigation. His immediate predecessor, Republican Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who housed overflow inmates in surplus military tents, was elected to an unprecedented six four-year terms. Bleeding heart liberals protested, though the tents had large air coolers. Arpaio correctly noted that the tents were used to house our military in the Middle East without the aid of cooling fans. Penzone resisted being compared to Arpaio, since he always fell short of the popular sheriff. As a top federal official with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in Mexico, the Middle East, Central and South America as well as in the United States including Arizona where he headed DEA, Joe Arpaio spent three decades fighting narcotics trafficking worldwide.

Over 170 MCSO jail inmates were taken to the hospital for overdose or drug-related incidents in 2022. For these conditions to exist within the jails exemplifies the need to replace Sheriff Penzone.

Currently there are two announced Republican 2024 challengers to Paul Penzone: Frank “Mike” Crawford and Jerry Sheridan. Both Crawford and Sheridan have filed statements of interest. Visit Jerry Sheridan‘s campaign website. This is Mike Crawford’s campaign website.


The death of “The City by the Bay”

San Francisco upscale mall shoppers greeted with “gifts” in elevators

San Francisco, previously a destination vacation spot for Arizonans longing for urbane elegance, high-end shopping, spectacular restaurants and live theater performances, is no more. 

It has fallen prey to its far-left politics, with democrats Gov. Gavin Newsom and Mayor London Breed running governments that would be the envy of Karl Marx. Newsom, who has spent California into bankruptcy, refers to his wife, Jennifer, mother of 4 of his children, as “First Partner” rather than First Lady so as not to offend the state’s large homosexual community. Mayor Breed has announced her latest scheme, launching what she terms, Housing for All, a strategy to fundamentally change how San Francisco approves and builds housing. Among her priorities is implementing what she calls “Mayor’s Roadmap to Downtown San Francisco’s future,” seemingly unaware that San Francisco was previously known for its vibrant downtown. Kuleto’s, the unparalleled Italian Restaurant in the Villa Florence Hotel, closed after thirty years as has the hotel, which was plagued by homeless addicts blocking the doorways amid hypodermic needles and piles of excrement on the sidewalk. 

The San Francisco Standard headlines its report, “Downtown San Francisco: Human Waste Increasingly Found in Westfield Mall Elevators, Staff Say.”

Desperate to distinguish herself, Breed dedicates a page to informing that “she is first African-American woman mayor in San Francisco’s history.”  She is not the first female nor is she the first black, but those traits, over which she has no control, are paramount to her.

Biden’s DHS chief Mayorkas brazenly lies through his teeth & UPDATE

May 11, 2023

Insults Americans as he claims “We have seen the effectiveness of our approach” at the southern border, as thousands of illegal aliens slither through every day creating a massive and costly national crisis

H/T RNC Research


This morning, May 11, 2023 NBC News reports: “After more than 11,000 migrants were caught crossing the southern border on Tuesday, the Biden administration is now preparing a memo that will direct Customs and Border Protection to begin releasing migrants into the United States without court dates or the ability to track them, according to three sources familiar with the plans.”

This is a direct quote. Seeing Red AZ does not use the word “migrants” to describe illegal alien invaders.

Homeland Security Sec. Mayorkas: “Let me be clear, I am not bald and will not be bald after May 11th

April 28, 2023

This is the 54-41 December 20, 2013 conformation vote for Alejandro Mayorkas. It was a straight party-line vote with no deviation. Even John McCain — whose widow Cindy and daughter, known on this site as Mega, both endorsed Biden — voted against Mayorkas’ confirmation. Former Sen. Jeff Flake, now but a bad memory, opted not to vote. Flake also endorsed Joe Biden, who rewarded him with an appropriate ambassadorship…to Turkey.

Josselyn Berry, AZ’s dem Gov’s mouth that roared, gets sacked

March 30, 2023

Within hours of the horrific murders of three young school children and three adults who worked at a Nashville Christian school, Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs’ spokesperson Josselyn Berry, posted an offensive tweet (captured by the AZ Freedom Caucus). Berry noted that the shooter was a transgender female to male and that incited hatred against her/him…making a mockery of the senseless slaughter of innocents.

“The governor does not condone violence in any form,” according to a statement from Hobbs’ office. “This administration holds mutual respect at the forefront of how we engage with one another. The post by the press secretary is not reflective of the values of the administration.”

After blasting Berry without mentioning her name, Hobbs gave her the cover of saying she “resigned,” though it was immediately clear that Berry’s hours were numbered and her future prospects are slim.

News of the provocative tweet spread quickly, in wide-ranging publications, including the UK’s Daily Mail, and Detroit’s Free Press, to the New York Post. Ultimately, Twitter removed the post, with a notice saying that Berry had violated the platform’s rules. Prior to her short-time job with Hobbs, Josselyn Berry was affiliated with the leftist Arizona Advocacy Network, which has recently folded, closing its door in 2022.

Nashville school murderer identified as transgender 

March 28, 2023

Six innocent people were killed Monday in a mass shooting at The Covenant School, a private Christian school that taught preschool through 6th grade in Nashville, including three children, and three school employees.

Police initially described the “heavily armed shooter,” as 28-year-old Audrey Elizabeth Hale, who police killed at the scene. Hale was a graphic designer who used he/him pronouns. Police said Hale was transgender and they initially identified him by his birth name and gender. Hale was assigned female at birth but identified as a transgender man using the name Aiden.

Biden called on Congress to pass an assault weapons ban, saying we “need to do more to protect our schools.”

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, (D-Illinois) echoed Biden’s remarks, saying he strongly supports “bills to ban assault weapons from civilian use and to close gaps in our background check system.”

But Rep. Tim Burchett, (R-Tenn.), told reporters that no laws — existing or proposed — could have stopped the attack.

“It’s a horrible, horrible situation, and we’re not going to fix it,” Burchett said. “Criminals are going to be criminals. And my dad, who fought in the Second World War in the Pacific against the Japanese, said, ‘Buddy, if somebody wants to take you out and doesn’t mind losing their life, there’s not a whole heck of a lot you can do about it.’

House GOP initiates action to remove do-nothing border czar Kamala Harris

March 25, 2023

The Daily Caller headlines its recent report by Chief National Correspondent Henry Rogers, EXCLUSIVE: House Republicans Introduce Resolution To Remove Kamala Harris From Role As Border Czar.

Seeing Red AZ takes our readers directly to the report that contains vital information for those of us in the border state of Arizona, that has been a major portal facilitating the onslaught of illegal aliens…a crisis no longer limited to Mexican nationals — frequently repeat offenders with criminal histories given inappropriate light sentences — but those from nations worldwide who are illegally invading the USA.

Texas GOP Rep. Ronny Jackson, MD, reintroduced this resolution that should be read by all Americans. He notes that “over 4,500,000 have illegally crossed our southern border since January 2021.”

NumbersUSA reports “Border encounters exceed 150,000 for 24th consecutive month.”

Calling illegal invaders “migrants” is akin to referring to bank robbers as “borrowers.” An important clarification of the terminology reported on the well respected Heritage Foundation by Senior Legal Fellow Hans von Spakovsky is, “Sorry, but the Accurate Legal Term is ‘Illegal Alien,’ which refers to an Arizona case.

Soros-funded NY DA hopes to bring down Donald Trump

March 21, 2023

Trump indictment is a political witch hunt encompassing his supporters

All indications point to an indictment against former President Donald Trump being issued by his political adversaries. The date of parading the popular president to be fingerprinted and indicted appears to be less certain than was previously reported. This is political gamesmanship by the left intended to humiliate Donald Trump and demoralize his supporters. It will only enflame us.

Far left democrat Alvin Bragg, Jr., is the Soros-backed* soft on crime, including downgrading felony charges, New York District Attorney who is bringing the politically motivated charges.

Remember this: Bragg is bringing these unprecedented, (misdemeanor) charges, not only against Donald Trump, but against all of his supporters. We’re the ones who stood in long lines in Phoenix under the blistering sun to hear him prior to his election and crowded into other venues since to celebrate this president. Others across America braved snow and rain for a chance to support candidate Trump. He energizes Americans. Following his election, he strengthened the economy, put solid judges on the U.S. Supreme Court and federal benches, while keeping his campaign promises.

As democrats focus on demoralizing a popular former president, the Communist leaders of China and Russia have been meeting for the past three days. The far left media ignores this potentially disastrous collusion.
