Toppling monuments: Analyzing the radical leftist’s demands

August 20, 2017

This past week has provided most of us with too much political lunacy to digest. Wide-scale death and injury perpetrated by Islamic jihadists in Spain and Finland, North Korea, led by a madman is threatening a “merciless (nuclear) strike,” and here at home riots and bizarre demands made by the undereducated who are not only toppling historical Civil War monuments but now want to obliterate references to our nation’s founders — Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Madison and others who owned slaves. Today we all agree the practice, then legal, was reprehensible. It is a stain on our past, but one we brought to an end.

In a testament to the pathetic state of  American education with leftist union teachers falling down on the job of educating the students in their charge, a statue of President Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president and the man famed for emancipating slaves, was defaced and then burned. Rampaging liberals, intent on destruction, lack the facts to discern that it was Republicans such as Lincoln who emerged victorious in the brutal Civil War that put an end to slavery. Democrats fought to defend it.

The word “racist” is hurled with impunity. “Hate speech” — speech the left disagrees with — has become an unpardonable sin, no longer worthy of First Amendment protection. Universities, which should be the bastions encouraging and protecting free expression, shut down or disinvite speakers with whom their liberal students disagree. 

Our president is arriving in Phoenix for a rally on Tuesday, and two far left Democrat Arizona Congressmen will be acting as ring leaders ginning up an unruly mob to gain national attention, since they’ve accomplished  nothing worthy of note.

AZ Republic gives instructions for Trump rally…to protesters

August 19, 2017

Under the guise of providing tips to those attending President Donald Trump’s upcoming rally, the Trump-haters at the Arizona Republic newspaper use the report to dispense more than advice to wear comfortable shoes, bring snacks and water. Another reminder: “Don’t bring a gun.

In a less than benign article cunningly titled, “How to attend (or protest at) President Trump’s Phoenix rally Tuesday” the emphasis is definitely on the protest aspect. Many supporters of the president have attended his previous packed house events, and are aware the lines are long, the wait is tiresome, and August weather in Phoenix is….well, August weather in Phoenix. During Donald Trump’s campaign, the same venue was used. There was a small group of political opponents kept in an area across the street, and who amounted to a wart on the Republican’s backside.

Clearly that is not what the newspaper is angling for this time.

The Hillary-endorsing, failing newspaper is not being civically responsible in directing anti-Trump attendees. It is laying the groundwork for disruption that provide the negative headlines it hopes will sell newspapers.

After recommending “How to get inside the rally,” among the “tips” it provides is to have “an exit plan.” Readers are advised to ”coordinate with whoever is attending with you on where/when to meet up in case your phones die, cell service cuts out, or there is an emergency.”

Other helpful hints include a “List of unofficial events outside the rally.” Follow that through to its logical conclusion.

The following question and answer posed and answered by the Arizona Republic is the crème de la crème of the incendiary anti-Trump article:

Q: Will registering for a ticket and not showing up leave an empty space?

A: No. Many protesters have registered for tickets but plan on not showing up in hopes of leaving President Trump talking to an empty room. This will not work, as seating is first-come, first-served, and there will be a mass of supporters waiting to get in. The only way Phoenix Convention Center will be empty is if no one shows up at all.

Saturday’s edition features the Phoenix Police Chief reassuring attendees the city is “well prepared” with maximum staffing, noting Phoenix’ partnership with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force and the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center.

This, for a visit from the President of the United States?

The same newspaper — advocating against a presidential pardon for former Sheriff Joe Arpaio — employs professional Hispanic editorialist Elvia Diaz, who has written a commentary with this enchanting title: “Send Joe Arpaio to prison. Being old is no excuse.”It begins with these words:

“Some of you want me to feel sorry for Joe Arpaio because he’s old  and can’t do any harm since he’s no longer sheriff. My answer? Hell no.

I want the 85-year-old former sheriff to go through the same hell that he forced Latinos to live, the same agony and torture of an uncertain future.

Where is my compassion for a senior citizen, who’s frail? Why keep kicking him when he’s already down? I have the same compassion he did….”

Remember, Diaz is talking about illegal alien invaders.


The curious case of black discrimination against conservative blacks

August 12, 2017

It would seem the National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. would be among the least likely places for discrimination to flourish, but that assumption would be incorrect.

Larry Elder, writes a masterful column on the topic, in which he concludes the exclusion of exceptional men such as Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams explains why “there’s no serious discussion in the black community about government dependency; school choice; the damage done by high taxes, excessive regulation and laws like minimum wage; and why blacks should rethink their allegiance to the Democratic Party.”

The Democrat Party (SRAZ’s preferred term) depends on robotic support from those who should know better by now. The lure of a free cell phone or the hope of a secure future without working for it are part of the conspiracy that, for decades has held too many minorities down.

Over fifty years ago, Democrat Pres. Lyndon Johnson’s “War on Poverty” ignited the decline by replacing fathers with welfare checks. Since then, taxpayers have spent more than $22 trillion fighting Johnson’s war. Pres. Ronald Reagan, who understood that the welfare state perpetuates itself by rewarding dependency, later said, “We declared war on poverty and poverty won.”

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and economists, distinguished professors, and gifted authors Dr. Thomas Sowelll and Dr. Walter Williams all came from the depths of poverty, but possessed great minds that led them to conservatism, and provided them the pathway to influence countless Americans of all ethnicities.

Until what we considered his inadvisable retirement in 2016 at age 86, the brilliant Thomas Sowell was Seeing Red AZ’s go-to columnist, as we frequently posted his articles under the heading, “Weekend Reading Guaranteed to Make You Smarter.”

Do yourself a favor and take time to read Larry Elder’s exposé:The Shameful Blackout of Thomas, Sowell and Williams.”

 


Obamacare provider exits, insured left high and dry

August 8, 2017

AARP and others thank ASS for a nightmare scenario

Sunday’s Arizona Republic newspaper carried a dramatic full-page ad, white background with stark black letters declaring:

Thank you

Senator

McCain

The rest of the text is blue:

for putting patients first

and voting

against the

Senate health

care bill.

The lower third of the page included the names and logos of sixteen health related organizations representing various diseases and, of course, the Obamacare supporting AARP. The flashy show of appreciation to Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS), was in regard to his obviously practiced and intended to shock, Roman emperor Caligula-style thumbs down vote against the gladiator begging for mercy in the arena. In this case the victims are the American people sold a bill of rotten goods.

ASS has never recovered from his own failed 2008 presidential bid, exacerbated by Donald Trump’s stunning victory. Casting the deciding vote to derail the Republican effort was the self-described Maverick’s ultimate revenge.

Nevada’s Insurance Commissioner Barbara Richardson issued this statement on Monday, announcing that Anthem, the largest provider of Blue Cross Blue Shield plans in the country, would pull out of the state’s 2018 individual insurance exchanges under the Affordable Care Act. (Obamacare)

When Obama’s lips are moving you can be sure he’s lying. President Trump will survive the petty ASS’s vote. Can the same be said about the people of Nevada?


Washington Times editorial exposes corrupt McCain

August 5, 2017

McCain’s legacy is as traitor to the conservative cause”

Matt Drudge calls John McCain, “the face of corruption.” and  this terse editorial not only agrees, but says, ‘Drudge nailed it.’ The Washington Times editorial, reposted below is unlike anything ever read in the flagrantly liberal, McCain-and-Flake-worshiping Arizona Republic. The duo of practiced deceivers also is given cover by Arizona Republican Party leadership which goes mute on the myriad deceptions of two embarrassing senators. Chairman Jonathan lines, elected in January, is the subject of a recall.

Matt Drudge of Drudge Report fame didn’t take kindly to Sen. John McCain’s recent thumbs-down vote on Obamacare repeal.

In a tweet that quickly amassed 5,500 or so likes, and near 2,800 retweets, Drudge simply wrote: “Corruption has so many faces …”

The message was atop a photo of a McCain campaign photo that included the senator’s face and this text: “John McCain: Leading the fight to stop Obamacare.”

Right. A picture says 1,000 words.

But in this case, one suffices. And Drudge nailed it: Corruption.

McCain, pure and simple, screwed Republicans, conservatives and President Donald Trump on Obamacare repeal. And he did it simply because he could.

He did it because, post-brain cancer diagnosis, he has nothing to lose. His political career is nearing its end, he’s made his money, he’s secured his family’s financial future.

He did it, bluntly, because he hates Trump more than he loves the American people.

And for a supposed war hero, that’s quite a statement to send.

Drudge’s tweet drew a photo from McCain’s 2016 re-election campaign. And McCain can say what he wants as his reasons for turning down the repeal bill — and he has indeed come out and said the “skinny repeal fell short of our promise to repeal and replace.”

But fact is: His legacy now is as a traitor to the conservative cause. Or, as Drudge likes to call it: “Corruption.”


Charlatan Jeff Flake hurls insults, trolls for Soros’ $$

August 3, 2017

Breitbart reports that Jeff Flake — now out of the closet as a craven liberal — readily embraces being labeled a “globalist.” In his book with the filched title, Flake goes long on an explanation laden with linguistic and statistical gyrations to justify his leftward lurch. His ghost writer concludes with a dash of flaky bravado, “Given the alternatives, I’ll take the globalist moniker, thank you.”

As you read Tony Lee’s report, keep some facts in mind:

Flake doesn’t mind insulting conservative Republicans or the president of the United States, who he loudly proclaimed he would not vote for.

Immediately after the votes were counted after his first senate race, Flake joined his mentor John McCain attempting to ram through yet another congressional amnesty scam with Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, other prominent liberals and Republicrats known as the Gang of Eight. Jeff Flake and John McCain  (click links) each ran as border hawks, quickly reverting back to their shameful job destroying amnesty of illegals position.

Multibillionaire George Soros, the Socialist one-worlder with a massive agenda to radically change the U.S.  Justice system, has shoveled $millions to left-wing candidates. McCain and Hillary Clinton have been longtime recipients of his largesse. Jeff Flake, currently sitting atop a mountain of lobbyist and special interest cash, wants even more. As he continually denigrates the very base from whom he expect to pull votes, money spent on deceptive advertising can buy enough campaign induced amnesia to make them forget what they were angry about.  It’s a political take on an old magicians trick known as ‘misdirection.’

When it’s all boiled down to its essence, know this: Jeff Flake regards with suspicion those of us who voted for Donald Trump for president. He refers to us derogatorily as ‘populists’ rather than Republicans, and though he has proven otherwise over again, he calls himself a conservative, since that term garners votes from those who aren’t paying attention to what he actually is.

 Flake’s latest hammer is calling those of us who desire a secure border “xenophobic,” though we are not fearful, just fed up. He has also hurled the fabricated word “nativist” beloved by Democrats, for being desirerous of wanting to retain our uniquely American history and language — both of which have been embraced by actual immigrants who gratefully assimilate into American culture.

Keeping his campaign promise to the American people, President Trump is taking decisive action against illegal immigration. On Wednesday, along with sponsoring Sens. Tom Cotton and David Purdue, Trump announced support of the RAISE Act, a Senate bill that prioritizes English speaking immigrants who demonstrate job skills and will contribute to our country —  meriting editorial praise from the Washington Times.

It’s all happening despite Jeff Flake withholding his support of the president and engaging in puerile name calling.

It’s time Arizona Republicans return the favor and withhold our votes from Jeff Flake.

 

 


Elvia Diaz or Russell Pearce: Who’s the hate monger?

July 19, 2017

The leftwing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic outdid itself with a hate-laden, incendiary screed passing itself off as an editorial.  Elvia Diaz, the heir apparent to long-in-the-tooth Linda Valdez, must have missed her dose of Prozac as she took to the keyboard in a venomous rant against Russell Pearce. The threatening headline reads, “You’ve got our attention, Russell Pearce, and we’re ready for you.”  Whether the readiness includes more than words is left to speculation.

Who is Russell Pearce? He’s the former Arizona Senate President who has dedicated his life to others. A brief overview includes serving as a Maricopa County Deputy Sheriff, promoted to Chief Deputy, Justice of the Peace and pro tem judge. He served in the military. Pearce has been the director of state agencies and is now Chief Deputy of the Maricopa County Treasure’s Office. He was also instrumental in the passage of Arizona’s SB1070. As you read his full and impressive bio, it becomes clear this is a man who stands head and shoulders above the crowd. 

What has Diaz so riled up is the fact that the respected investigative and  legal watchdog Judicial Watch and Pearce have joined forces requesting Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich sue the state Board of Regents for skirting a recent Arizona Court of Appeals decision denying illegal aliens in-state tuition rates.

In Diaz’ fantasy world, the illegals have morphed into venerated “immigrants” and “dreamers.”  And patriot Pearce?  He is worthy of a voluminous assault, exemplifying a new low in journalistic standards. Here are a few examples taken directly from the editorial with Diaz’ smiling photo smugly attached:

Russell Pearce is described in the opening sentence as the man “behind Arizona’s infamous, anti-immigrant law…we thought we sent to the depths of irrelevancy.”

Pearce, she construes, “Is attempting a comeback, with his divisive and corrosive rhetoric clearly intact.” Because he has worked and earned retirement in the state legislature, law enforcement, and the judicial system and he doesn‘t think Arizona’s taxpaying citizens should be forced to underwrite illegals by gifting them with  in-state tuition,  Diaz refers to him as a “disgraced, triple-dipping bigot.”

Diaz goes on, “It’s a mistake to dismiss Pearce as the lunatic, publicity-hungry politician some Arizonans love to loathe.” At least she conceded it’s only “some“ loathers. Most of us regard the man whose personal motto is “faith, family freedom — above all else,” with respect.

The diatribe ends with this sunny thought, “The stars have aligned in his favor. Donald Trump’s election to the White House makes it all too plain that people like Pearce remain in our midst.

We can’t become too distracted with Trump to ignore them. We must remain ready to fight their kind of intolerance.”

Long known to be in the grasp of death throes, the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) continues to insult its dwindling reader base.

In the skewed thinking of the radical left, it’s intolerant to want to secure our border and deny undeserved benefits to invaders. They are poised to fight for the hordes over our own citizens.
