Anti-Trump jihadists are not “peaceful protesters”

September 25, 2020

The far-left media cover the destructive riots fomenting in American cities as “peaceful protests,” though they are marked by arson, theft and violence. Police officers have been attacked, hit with cinder blocks brought in on pallets to smash store windows, as we witnessed in Scottsdale Fashion Square on May 30, where millions of dollars in damage caused a shutdown for nearly two weeks.

Violence, now including police shootings, has essentially been given a pass within cities run by Democrats who turn a blind eye to the mayhem. In fact, prior to the canonization of career criminal George Floyd, the harassment of GOP members of congress was condoned by Democrat U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and her ilk. Waters, who mysteriously became a multi-millionaire while in congress, urged an assembled crowd to harass members of the President’s staff and cabinet wherever they might be, “in restaurants, department stores or at the gas station.”

Brock Simmons writing for Gateway Pundit, exposesPro-Antifa DA Drops Attempted Murder and Arson Charges For Terrorist Who Hurled Massive Molotov Cocktail At Police.” His article is specifically about Portland, Oregon, but countless cities from Seattle, Washington and Kenosha, Wisconsin to Chicago, Illinois, Louisville, Kentucky and points beyond are impacted by the violence. Americans are not even safe in their own homes as we witnessed in St. Louis, when BLM rioters broke down an iron gate in a private community to harass homeowners.

Until recently Democrats were content to ignore the anarchy in American cities, pretending it didn’t exist. Now, concerned that their feeble presidential candidate Joe Biden is not adequately addressing the widespread chaos, they have acknowledged the rioting, deceptively blaming it on President Trump.

Given the vicious barrage they unleashed against Trump at their convention, if Democrats actually believed that the president is responsible for anarchists attacking police and torching buildings, it would be their major talking point.

It remains to be seen if weak Joe Biden, who has been holed up in his basement, will be able to debate President Trump. The first debate is scheduled for Tuesday, September 29, 2020. Others will take place Thursday, October 15, and Thursday, October 22. The Vice Presidential debate will be held Wednesday, October 7, 2020. They will all be televised 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. ET. (6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. AZ time).

Left vow riots over filling SCOTUS vacancy; Marxist coup focused on 2020 election

September 20, 2020

The political left openly supports the rampaging mobs of radicals waging war on American cities, their citizens and our dedicated men and women who serve in law enforcement.

Now these contemptible thugs are not limiting their violence to inflicting serious bodily harm, looting, taking over city blocks, destroying national monuments and committing arson — carrying out more than $1 billion in property damage in the name of “social justice.” Breitbart reports they are also issuing warnings of rampant national destruction if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell moves forward with the orderly process to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court following the Friday death of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at age 87.

Living in a nation that celebrates liberty with a Constitution that enshrines our rights means nothing to these undereducated thugs, who have scant knowledge of America’s miraculous founding.

Iranian-born Reza Aslan, identified as an author, former CNN host and a professor, is also a virulent Trump-hater, using vulgarities in his twitter descriptions of the president. Aslan converted from Islam to evangelical Christianity and then back again to being a Muslim. His threatening screeds are also profanity-laced and aimed at Americans, who he warns will suffer if Ginsburg is replaced by President Trump.

If this promise of grand scale national chaos regarding the president’s right to fill a Supreme Court vacancy isn’t enough, the anarchists and their partners in the Democrat party are pushing an unrestrained assault against the American election system, as Gateway Pundit underscores in this morning’s post,MUST SEE VIDEO: Catherine Engelbrecht and the Prestigious TRUE THE VOTE Organization Release Powerful Warning on the Marxist Coup in 2020.”

None of us can be too busy not to carve out time to view these three crucial links. America’s future and those of our families depends on us being fully informed as the emboldened radical left is intent on obliterating our way of life.


Is it possible to break a moral compass that doesn’t exist?

September 17, 2020

When columnists have been featured on this site, they are reserved for weekend reading. Dennis Prager’s recent column,The Left’s Moral Compass Isn’t Broken,” one of the most instructive you’ll read, deserves prominence.

We are facing the most important election of our lifetimes — Nov. 3, 2020 —  just 47 days from today. The concept of honesty has vanished from the lexicon of the left. Democrats have turned fiction into fact and truth into a vague memory. They are willing to ignore the destruction of cities and spiraling criminality, including the maiming and deaths of law enforcement officers, whose departments they now want to defund and dismantle.

The Democrat presidential candidate, Joe Biden, a nearly 50-year D.C. political insider, is failing and unable to speak coherently without a teleprompter, and even then, frequently blunders. He refers to the ticket on which he and his running mate, Kamala Harris — selected solely based on her race and gender — as the “Harris-Biden ticket,” forgetting he is the one attempting to challenge President Donald Trump, who has kept his promises to the American people.

We grew up thinking there were two major political parties…Republicans and Democrats. That is no longer the case. Today’s Democrats are yesterday’s Socialists who we fought WWII to eradicate. Those Democrats of the Depression and WWII years, who reelected Franklin Delano Roosevelt to four consecutive terms (1933-1945) were ultimately constrained in 1947 by the Twenty-Second Amendment (ratified in 1951), which prohibited more than two four-year terms in office. This historical footnote is crucial in remembering Democrats have a history of being predisposed to misappropriate power.

There is an important biblical message for Trump supporting activists to take to heart as we head into the waning days of this election cycle, “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.”


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.


Drop the leftist AZ Republic: Why pay to be insulted?

September 12, 2020

Skewed, manipulated and fabricated “news” is no news at all

The toxic Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic is not only in a state of financial desperation, it is also rife with misinformation, interspersed with grammatical, spelling and factual errors. These days the staff of the displaced and recently sold newspaper is mostly composed of ASU Journalism school students, lacking editors and content with a byline. Remaining employees have voted to unionize.

Hemorrhaging readers due to the ongoing venom spew aimed at President Trump, Republican office holders and candidates, deceit is its driving force, with no effort at balanced reporting. In the wake of the nationwide BLM riots, the newspaper sides with the radical, destructive mobs who push defunding and disbanding the police.

Intimidation is rampant. The Daily Wire headlines its recent reportRochester Officers Cover Names After Protesters Shout Their Addresses, Kids’ Names, Make Taunting Calls To Parents In Front Of Them.” They were described as “peaceful protesters” in the local media. This week Rochester, NY native and Police Chief La’Ron D. Singletary, who is black, along with his entire RPD command staff announced their resignations. The city’s mayor Lovely A. Warren and the majority of council members are also black, proof that nothing calms the violent thugs.

Greg Burton, the AZ Republic’s editor-in-chief concentrates on promoting diversity based on ethnicity and gender, but never of thought. He normalizes the abnormal with promotion of “non-binary and transgender” actors, who we are advised, prefer “they/them pronouns.” The far-left newspaper which now focuses on blacks, has long been bonded to the astronomically costly flood of illegal aliens — which the newspaper mischaracterizes as “immigrants” — breaching our border, as Kristin Tate pointed out in The Hill. It’s a good bet these groups aren’t subscribers. The point is propagandizing the rest of us.

Conservative views are unwelcome. Columnist EJ Montini, as emaciated as the shriveled newspaper, exemplifies an image of being consumed by hatred. His interchangeable cohort Laurie Roberts, formerly relegated to sob stories, has now metastasized into full blown loathing aimed at conservatives in general and Pres. Trump in particular.

Save your money. The overpriced Arizona Republic averages a yearly subscription rate of nearly $500. There are better ways to spend money than paying to have your intelligence insulted.


College education devolves to teaching “Overthrowing the State”

September 9, 2020

Requires freshmen write their own anti-American manifesto

This Daily Caller article by Mary Margaret Olohan is too important to put off reading. “How to Overthrow the State,” uncovers the extremist ideology being foisted on first year college students, tied to their all-important GPA.

The Washington and Lee University Writing Course 101 compilation delves into “literature of resistance,” with one “anchored by the exploration of four case studies: Muhammad Ali’s refusal to be inducted into the army; John Carlos and Tommie Smith’s Black Power salute at the 1968 Olympics; Serena Williams’s boycott of Indian Wells; and Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling during the national anthem.”

Another focuses on animal rights and environmental activist writing. Then there is how normative and so-called “non-normative” families form,  exploring  how “home” intersects with markers of identity, such as race, class, and gender.

Yet another course explores the complexities of and correspondence between “inferiority and otherness” based on factors such as color, gender, education, sexual orientation, privilege, and language. Among those targeted for study is Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. Oh, to be a fly on the wall in that class! Globalization is a major course of study.

One class is anti-religion at its core, questioning if proof beyond a doubt, using reason alone, is sufficient evidence of the existence of God. Students are asked if they should always base beliefs in evidence, or “is it ever reasonable to believe something for which there is no evidence?”

These courses are just the tip of the radical indoctrination iceberg.

Washington and Lee is a private liberal arts university in Lexington, Virginia established in 1749. The school defends a course offering called “How to Overthrow the State” that requires students write their own manifestos.

The course will “explore examples of revolutionary thought and action from across the Global South,” including Marxists Frantz Fanon and Che Guevara, and Mohandas Gandhi.

For this, parents are expected to shell out $73,000 (listed on its website as average annual cost) to ensure their dimpled darlings will emerge as radicals prepared to demolish the United States of America.

Recently, 79% of over 260 faculty members meeting over Zoom voted to remove the name of General Robert E. Lee. For the change to take effect, the school’s board of trustees must approve it.

Prior to the faculty meeting to vote on the name change, three black law school faculty members urged the school to drop both Washington and Lee, writing, “Washington’s brutality, inhumanity and cruelty are well documented. Lee’s reputation for racial violence and hatred is well known. He was a monster.”

Lee died in 1870, after five years as Washington College president. The college’s name was soon changed to Washington and Lee University, honoring his dedication. Lee is buried in a mausoleum inside the Lee Chapel on campus. How long before the chapel will be demolished and Lee’s bones callously thrown into the Potomac?


Leftist teacher issues death threats to AZ US Rep. Paul Gosar

September 8, 2020

The online Arizona Daily Independent newspaper does a masterful job of reporting what you won’t see in the radically left wing Arizona Republic

HeadlinedRepublican Congressman Receives Death Threat From Retired Teacher,” it includes the menacing, profanity-laced message left on Congressman Paul Gosar’s voice mail by retired teacher and Democrat political activist, Margaret Kathleen Spangenberg. The thought of this violent hatemonger interacting with young children should make every parent’s blood run cold. It’s a given she’s not an anomaly.

Spangenberg’s Facebook page shown in a screenshot on ADI‘s site, identifies her as a Mark Kelly supporter and Red for Ed protester — teachers who abandoned approximately 844,000 Arizona students for nearly two weeks in 2018, demanding and receiving a 20% pay increase for their part-time jobs from capitulating Gov. Doug Ducey. Like rats following the Pied Piper, they obediently followed self-acknowledged Socialist Noah Karvelis, a 24-year-old uncredentialed hip hop music teacher as they made demands.

Acquaint yourself with the teachers unions and $millions they donate to Democrat candidates. Its all substantiated on the Center for Responsive Politics web site, which states Democrats receive at least 94 percent of the funds they contributed to candidates and parties.

Congressman Gosar, a retired dentist, is doing a phenomenal job on behalf of the people of his 4th Congressional District as well as the entire state of Arizona. Read his impressive bio which includes his top-notch current and career ratings.


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.”

Bumbling Biden out-buffoons himself on tax plan

September 5, 2020

During his recent trip to riot plagued Kenosha, Wisconsin, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden was asked about his tax plan.

“Not gonna punish anybody but every[one] should pay a fair share,” he punted. “Not gonna lay out for you. I won’t now because they’ll shoot me.” Clearly unwell, he was able to string together these incoherent sentences without cribbing from notes.

Biden didn’t specify if the imagined shooters would be his handlers or the irate American taxpayers.

According to the non-partisan Tax Foundation, founded in 1937, most previous tax increases were temporary, while Biden’s tax plan would raise taxes for each year over the budget window and are intended as permanent. By historical standards, the tax increases Biden has proposed are significant, ranking alongside tax increases used to help finance World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

His plan would also have a negative long-run effect on the American economy, lowering long-run output and after-tax incomes across the income spectrum. Biden’s VP running mate Kamala Harris has also proposed multiple punishing changes to the tax code, including expanding your after-death estate tax to cover increased teacher compensation. As a lawyer, Harris should know this is not a federal issue.

In Arizona after striking teachers abandoned appropriately 840,000 students (link includes numerous permanent school funding sources) for nearly two weeks in 2018, Gov. Doug Ducey rewarded them with a 20% pay increase for their part-time employment.

Joe Biden’s irrational tax ramblings are nothing new. In June 2019 candidate Biden vowed, On Day One, I will move to eliminate Trump’s tax cuts,” bizarrely expecting the news to be met with cheers by American taxpayers.

Lay in a good supply of popcorn. The scheduled debates between Republican President Donald Trump and Biden, a pathetic relic of nearly 50 years of being reelected by Democrats, will be both enlightening and entertaining.

The smart money is on Trump.
