Justice Ginsburg dead at 87: Misjudged reality

September 19, 2020

With this September 18, 2020 press release, the U.S. Supreme announced the death of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at age 87. She was appointed to the high court by President Clinton in 1993 and was obviously hoping scandal-plagued Democrat Hillary Clinton would appoint her successor after the 2016 presidential election. However, the people of the United States, had the last word, (2-minute video) overwhelmingly electing Donald Trump and thwarting Ginsburg’s plans.

As a result, the former ACLU General Counsel and zealous abortion advocate hung on, working through serious illnesses and surgeries, hoping to outlast President Trump, who she clearly did not want to replace her with a conservative justice.

In 2018 Ginsburg stated her intention to stay on the court for five more years, hoping to surpass what she believed to be President Trump’s time in office. She pointed to the example of Justice John Paul Stevens, who retired at 90.

“I am sure she wants to stay on the court until the end of the Trump presidency if she can,” said Erwin Chemerinsky, the dean of the law school at the University of California, Berkeley, and a liberal who called on Ginsburg to retire in 2014, when Barack Obama was president and Democrats controlled the Senate.

Ginsburg’s glib explanation for falling asleep during Barack Obama’s 2015 State of the Union speech was that she’d had too much to drink before attending andwas not 100% sober.” (video admission.) The political double standard was evidenced by newscasters who found that comment to be humorous.  Does anyone believe their reaction would have been the same if those words were uttered by a 90-year-old Republican justice? CNN slickly dubbed the outrageous episode “Power napping.”

Juxtaposed against the vicious, deceitful personal assault then-nominee and now Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his family endured, far leftist Ginsburg had a cakewalk. The August 3, 1993 roll call confirmation vote on her nomination was 96-3, with one not voting. Sen. John McCain, who claimed to be pro-life, voted in concert with his Arizona seat-mate, Democrat Dennis DeConcini.

As we fast forward to the announcement of her death, Justice Ginsburg big gamble didn‘t pay off. President Trump sits in the White House. He will have the opportunity to appoint a third justice to the Supreme Court.

Although death often facilitates a magical transformation, Seeing Red AZ deals in realities and brings our readers this instructive February 2012 post and accompanying video, titled,US Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg: Unfit to serve,” in which she disparages the U.S. Constitution.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was not an icon. She was an iconoclast.


AZ Republic reports “boy” shot at DPS agent & Update

September 18, 2020

Breitbart News verifies what SRAZ suspected, that Luis German Espinoza Acuna, who ambushed and shot at Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) detective is an illegal alien. The Arizona Republic continues to conceal that pertinent information. It was recently announced he will be tried as an adult. He is facing at least three charges, including attempted first-degree murder of an officer.

Thursday, just days following the shooting of a uniformed officer at the U.S. federal courthouse in Phoenix, a Department of Public Safety trooper was shot at multiple times while stepping out of his vehicle by a “boy” who is now in custody. His accomplice, who was driving, sped off and is being sought. The officer was uninjured.

The Arizona Republic is doing what it does best…obfuscating and deflecting, when the facts don’t fit its agenda, such as his legal status, which goes unmentioned.

This is a direct quote from the newspaper’s online coverage:

“Officials said the boy was arrested and the gun was recovered from the scene. The Arizona Republic is not identifying the teen because he is a minor.”

The Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) is not so reticent as seen in this video news conference including the punk’s photo (2:39 min.) His name is Luis German Espinoza Acuna. He is 17-years-old and shot an AK-47 at a clearly marked officer. At 17, he is old enough to sport a caterpillar mustache on his upper lip and has a practiced steely-eyed glare.

He is also old enough to be tried as an adult. Arizona Revised Statues Title 13. Criminal Code § 13-501 addresses charging definitions for persons under 18 years of age.

During the news conference, DPS Director Colonel Heston Silbert noted that to date this year, “74 law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty in the United States.”

That’s 74 too many.

Two days earlier a trio of Arizona Republic reporters described a drive-by shooter asa person,” who was taken into custody after shooting a security officer with the U.S. Marshall’s Office outside the Sandra Day O’Connor Federal Courthouse in downtown Phoenix.  He had a name, of course. James Lee Carr, 68, is black, another fact they preferred to obscure as ‘Black Lives Matter’ is heralded, despite the reign of terror and destruction its adherents and hangers-on have unleashed on countless American cities.


Deputies shot on L.A. street, Lebron James goes myopic

September 15, 2020

Law Enforcement Today features a multi-faceted report about the two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies who were each shot multiple times in the head while sitting in their patrol car in Compton Saturday night.

Both deputies required surgeries and are in critical condition. One is identified as a 24-year-old male, the other, a 31-year-old female, who is the mother of a 6-year-old boy. They had each been members of the department for only 14 months, graduating the sheriff’s training academy together.

We take our readers directly to the Law Enforcement Today site, since it features video footage of the unprovoked shooting and a challenge issued by LA Sheriff Alex Villanueva to NBA Lakers celeb Lebron James to match the $175,000 privately raised reward money for information leading to the gunman who ambushed the two deputies. Lebron James 2020 yearly salary is $37.44 million.

James previously said, “I know people get tired of hearing me say it, but we are scared as black people in America, black men, black women, black kids, we are terrified.”

In earlier tweets James wrote: “And y’all wonder why we say what we say about the Police!! Someone please tell me WTF is this???!!! Exactly another black man being targeted.This s—t is so wrong and so sad!! Feel so sorry for him, his family and OUR PEOPLE!! We want JUSTICE.”

James missed the point. The rest of us want justice, too. The shooter is still at large. Adding fuel to the vicious assault, when violent mobs heard that the officers were being taken to Lynwood hospital, they blocked both the emergency entrances and exits shouting, “We hope they die!”

Loquacious Lebron James suddenly became mute when that news was released.


ASU’s “Cronkite’s Kids”: Even bigger leftists than “Uncle Walter”

September 14, 2020

CBS newscaster Walter Cronkite: “Being a liberal is essential to being a good journalist”

Seeing Red AZ has frequently written about the failing local newspaper, long beset by layoffs and losing subscriptions at breakneck speed. We’ve also related how career reporters have been displaced by ASU Cronkite journalism school students, sans offices and editors, whose writing is rife with factual inaccuracies along with spelling and grammatical errors.

This inexcusable, inept lot is all the radically left, Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic can afford.

The pathetic infestation in Arizona has not escaped national notice. A recent exposé in National Review magazine is titled,Cancel Culture Comes to Cronkite.”  It’s fact-filled and definitely worth reading, though we dispute the overuse of the word “progressive” used to describe radical leftists, previously known as liberals. The left prefers “progressive,” which sounds forward thinking.

These students have long been inundated with far left dogma and are now spewing it to gain creds within the treacherous Trump-hating industry.  Claiming victimhood, however, has not lost its panache, as these black University of Southern California communications students successfully demonstrated.

As to Cronkite himself, he was anything but conservative. He is also an unknown entity to ASU J-school students since he died in 2009 at age 92. Cronkite supported a “limited” global government system, opposing political conservatives who strenuously objected to the dangers in such a scheme. Cronkite voiced support for Bill Clinton during Clinton’s impeachment trial, but opposed the “War on Drugs,” officially launched by Republican President Richard Nixon June 1971, who declared drug abuse “public enemy number one.”

Cronkite’s nightly news broadcasts featuring his paternal demeanor and calming baritone voice, concealed his true intent, which was designed to turn the American people against our involvement in Vietnam, resulting in our returning military personnel, even those missing limbs or wheelchair bound, being spat upon by the dope smoking hippies who avoided military service.

Media Research Center has put together an eye-opening compilation of facts about Walter Cronkite, demonstrating that following his retirement in 1981 after twenty years as anchor of the CBS Evening News, Cronkite had made clear his liberal views on a range of issues, including how being a liberal is essential to being a good journalist. Be sure to read. “Walter Cronkite: Liberal Media Icon” featuring this collection of Cronkite’s liberal pronouncements, and denunciations of conservatives.

You’ll see he was the ideal leftist to name the ASU Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication after.


Is political changeling Rodney Glassman seeking another job?

September 7, 2020

Slickster Rodney Glassman attempting to promote himself as a middle-man bundler for Pres. Trump and hoping to be rewarded

Today is Labor Day. Now celebrating all American workers, it was originally promoted by labor unions and signed into law June 28, 1894 by President Grover Cleveland.

Although perennial candidate Rodney Glassman wasn’t around in Cleveland’s era, he does have something in common with the former president: Both were Democrats.

Plagued by personal scandals, Cleveland never changed his affiliation, but Glassman, who has run and lost myriad elections, was a lifelong Democrat…until he magically recast himself as a “conservative” Republican during his recent 2020 campaign for Maricopa County Assessor. Glassman lost that primary race also, soundly trounced by incumbent Eddie Cook.

Two short years ago, in 2018, then Corporation Commission candidate Glassman was featured on the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union slate which endorsed only Democrats. His photo is adjacent to that of far left U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, (AZ CD-3) an illegal alien advocate, in whose D.C. office Glassman previously worked.

In 2012 when Democrat Glassman ran for the U.S. Senate from Arizona, he was enthusiastically endorsed by both Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona.

Additionally, Rodney Glassman was a candidate for state chairman of the Arizona Democrat Party, hoping to guide the statewide strategy for defeating Republicans. This post was one in a long string of offices he sought and lost.

Rodney Glassman is desperate for a win. His intent is to buy his way into office…any office.

He’s unmistakably gearing up again, recently sending out bizarre emails soliciting money for President Trump. “Please join me in contributing to President Trump’s re-election campaign by completing the attached contribution form and mailing it to: Rodney Glassman, Trump Victory Fund,” with his law firm’s address. Those who amass funds on behalf of presidential candidates are known asbundlers,”* often seeking cushy appointments for their efforts. The amounts on the form range from $1,000-$5,000 annually on the low end to $1,161,200 per couple annually.  Glassman even offers this inducement: “If you’d like to meet for a coffee or lunch, I would be happy to connect personally for a visit and contribution hand-off.” He signs the email, “Thanks, in advance! Your Friend, Rodney.”

Thanks…but no thanks Rodney. Most of us choose our friends more carefully. And we are perfectly capable of sending in our usually more modest donations to reelect President Trump on our own.

Disclosure of Campaign Bundlers*

“…The public needs to be able to gauge for itself whether the people elevated to political appointments got there based on their merits or by virtue of their prowess as elite “bundlers.” A study of President Obama’s top-tier fundraisers in 2008 showed that 80% received “key administration posts” as defined by the White House.”

AZ Republic’s bogus McHeadliner vilifying Pres. Trump cites anonymous sources

September 6, 2020

“Reportedly,” is a word used to convey that something is claimed to be the case or has taken place, although there is no proof, correctly identified by President Trump as fake news.

And newspapers allegedly, supposedly and purportedly are deemed to be instruments of fact, dependably delivering the news.

This sarcasm is directed at the radically leftist Arizona Republic, which is dependably undependable. As an example, the banner headline topping Saturday’s front page might be mistaken for an April Fool’s Day edition bearing these words: “Trump reportedly insulted McCain.”

John McCain died August 25, 2018. He then had three funerals, in three different locations — Phoenix, Arizona, Washington D.C., and Annapolis Maryland — ensuring it is past the point of speculation he can still be insulted.

The premise of the newspaper article is that President Trump is alleged to have maligned McCain following his death, which Trump denies. It’s a “he said, someone alleges” scenario and first class farce intended solely to discredit Trump and siphon votes from him less than two months before Election Day. There is no pretext too low.

The allegations, initially printed in the leftist Atlantic magazine, were described as originating from “three anonymous sources.” That fact alone should serve to discredit the report. Instead it rates front page coverage by the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating newspaper.

McCain, who can’t be praised enough by the radical newspaper, still has his syndicate actively working to take down Pres. Trump and Sen. McSally.

Vengeful McCain tried to taint Trump by claiming he had Russian ties though he knew that to be false as he maliciously hand-carried a fictitious “dossier,” paid for by the DNC to then-FBI Director James Comey.

When caught, McCain in his characteristic style snapped, “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell.”

For a more reliable version of John McCain, do yourself a favor and read,People Must Stop Defending John McCain, He Ended His Career As A Jerk, And He Started Russiagate,posted in The Lid.

Arizona Republican Sen. Martha McSally is being challenged by Mark Kelly, supported by Socialist billionaire George Soros. Democrat Kelly, also backed by the newspaper, launched two national gun control PACs devoted to electing like minded Democrats and is aligned with extremist U.S. Rep. Ihan Omar. He never uses the word “Democrat” in his ads, a scheme that worked for Kyrsten Sinema, as he tries to obscure his political allegiance. Kelly’s close business ties with Communist China earning him an estimated $20+ million render him unacceptable.

Democrats running for political office engage in a game of charades. The more they can conceal, contort and misrepresent, the more they are given cover by the hemorrhaging subscriptions local newspaper.


Action Alert: Phx City Council considers BLM mural

September 4, 2020

When the news got out that a “Black Lives Matter” mural was being considered in downtown Phoenix, the Phoenix City Council mysteriously tabled discussion of the proposal brought forth by the Transportation, Infrastructure and Innovation Subcommittee.

This letter, from Deputy City Manager Mario Paniagua, tweeted by District 6 Councilman Sal DiCiccio, confirms the withdrawal of the item from consideration. Don’t be lulled into thinking this is the end of the matter. The council members need to hear from you. Call their offices. Then call again. They prefer emails that stack up unread. Council members meet in executive sessions, where this mural could be discussed out of public view.

Phoenix city government is a far left bastion in the middle of a red state. Though the mayor and council members deceptively run as non-partisan, their political alliances are widely known. Currently of the eight districts only three have Republican members: Thelda Williams (Dist. 1); Jim Waring (Dist. 2); and Sal DiCiccio, (Dist. 6). Mayor Kate Gallego, who issued this statement calling “Peaceful protests (against the police) valid and important,” is also a Democrat.

All of the subcommittees are dominated by Democrats. The Transportation, Infrastructure and Innovation Subcommittee which proposed the BLM mural meets the First Wednesday of each month at 9:00 am.

Shamefully,Operation Blue Ribbonhas not received news coverage.

Homeowners in north central Phoenix recently put blue ribbons on trees lining Central and 7th Avenue indicating support of our police. We’ve been told city workers removed them. Neighbors replaced them last Saturday and the city swooped in to remove them again. The persistent homeowners are now putting the police supporting blue ribbons on trees in their private yards. This fine idea should be emulated throughout the city.


AZ Republic: Pravda’s desert based rival

September 2, 2020

It’s no secret the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic is just a few gasps away from final departure. In a state that in 2016 gave all 11 of its electoral votes to Donald Trump, the geniuses at the newspaper continue to insult the remaining readership it so desperately needs to survive. As a business model, this is a Class A failure. As a left-wing agenda pushier, it hastens its own demise, without giving an inch to the bitter end.

Emaciated in staff, size and content and committed to obscuring facts, the daily relentlessly clings to vicious anti-Trump spew that few read. It long ago stopped having an op-ed page, giving space to national columnists presenting another perspective. Since those had to be purchased from news syndicates, the current single-opinion is Pravda-like in setting a single radical tone. Even if there was a shred of desire to provide other views there are no resources. Instead of looking to expand readership with balanced reporting, while faced with a dramatic decline in advertising revenue, it promotes its implementation of diversity hiring practices.

There is no objectivity or variance of theme. Even the chorus of Letters to the Editor sing the same sour one note, regardless of how off key. This pathetic example, given prominent placement, attempts to emulate Don McLean‘s “American Pie” lament referring to the changing world after the death of Buddy Holly:

Something touched me deep inside the day the music died

Bye, Bye Mr. President Trump

Got no Chevy, got no steady, and my life is a dump

Your good ole boys are Neo-Nazis and Klan

And you’re telling’ lies whenever you can

Bye, Bye Mr. President Trump

You’re down double digits in the polls—quite a slump

Instead of uniting you’re dividing this land

And you’re telling’ lies whenever you can

And you’re telling’ lies whenever you can

Bye, Bye Mr. President Trump

Mitch McConnell, William Barr are always kissing your rump

And people are dying ‘cause your head’s in the sand

And you’re telling’ lies whenever you can

And you’re telling’ lies whenever you can

Don Robertson, Scottsdale

 Unless you’re a masochist, there are better ways to spend your money and far more reliable news sources.


Biden-supporter Flake no comprende conservatism

August 31, 2020

Radical hate monger Jeff Flake despises Pres. Trump more than he cherishes USA

It’s impossible to generate sympathy for a coreless political has-been who cloaks his brazen ego and flagrant ignorance in sanctimonious-laced pomposity, though watching Jeff Flake remind Arizona voters why he was unable to run for a second senate term due to his abysmal 18% approval rating in his home state, is instructive.

Flake recently appeared on CNN, telling leftist host Christiane Amanpour that he believes that “on important issues of American democracy,” former Vice President Joe Biden is “more conservative than the president is.” A John McCain protégé, the aptly named Flake was unable to give any rational explanation, so we’ll draw the distinctions for him:

President Donald Trump’s business career provided the tools to increase jobs and employment to historic highs, as he advocates for lower taxes, securing our border, and expansion of parental choice in education. He is pro-life and a strong Second Amendment supporter. Under his guidance, the US is energy independent, a dream never achieved by previous administrations. Globalism, integral to Socialist George Soros’ borderless nations vision and embraced by Flake, has been discarded as Trump wisely rejected the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Iran nuclear deal and the constricting Paris climate accords.

Pres. Trump has added two new justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and filled federal judicial vacancies. Acquaint yourself with his first term accomplishments and the social programs he has instituted.

Then do yourself a favor and read Patrick Buchanan‘s,A Most Consequential Presidency,” which expands on Trump’s unprecedented and powerful impact on the United States of America. It’s obviously not on Jeff Flake’s reading list.

Jeff Flake’s hero Joe Biden, a Washington insider for nearly 50 years, is now holed up in his basement bunker, emerging only to utter inanities, such as saying he would “shut down the entire country” if a second surge of the Coronavirus surfaces. No wonder Speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want him to participate in the presidential debates that are an essential aspect of presidential elections.

In his 2017 140-page pamphlet masquerading as a book with the stolen title, “Conscience of a Conservative,” Jeff Flake wrote:

“Seemingly overnight, the word globalist became a grave insult among people in my party who also call themselves ‘conservative.”  In this country, we are less than 5 percent of the world’s population. We are 20 percent of the world’s economic output. And if we don’t trade, we don’t grow. Given the alternatives, I’ll take the globalist moniker, thank you.”
