No wonder John Kerry doesn’t visit AZ in July

July 26, 2016

On a trip to Vienna this past weekend, Secretary of State John Kerry — a global warming devotee — said the threats posed by air conditioners and refrigerators are on par with Islamic terrorism. 

No wonder he hasn’t graced the great state of Arizona with his presence. He must have heard the temperatures are routinely in the triple digits throughout the summer. He’d have a problem not using the air in his luxury hotel suite and limousine.

Kerry, it should be remembered, entered into a disastrous nuclear enrichment deal with America-hating Iranians, on behalf of Barack Obama. To sweeten the agreement — which removes sanctions against the hostile regime and ultimately enables Iran to become a nuclear power — the U.S. has made available $1 billion in frozen assets. After the initial part of the deal was cut, the Iranian dictator led mobs in chants  of death to the United States! Heritage has a fact-filled report.

But in John Kerry’s world, it’s those dastardly refrigerators and air conditioners we have to worry about. ISIS murderers aren’t the threat to the civilized world.  His talking points are those of Barack Obama. 

This is Barack Obama’s take (brief video) on the ISIS inspired violence that has invaded Western Europe and the United States at breakneck speed on a nearly daily basis.

 

 


BHO lawyer who harassed Sheriff Joe on Hillary’s VP list

July 5, 2016

Hillary considering the disasterous Thomas Perez as running mate

Desperate Democrats, all too aware that their nominee Hillary Clinton is widely perceived as dishonest — even among fellow Democrats — have rolled out an “I Trust Hillary” campaign. Among the liberal loyalists making appearances on the Sunday news shows attempting to boost her sagging image was Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez. Arizonans will remember Perez as Obama’s Civil Rights Division lawyer who conducted a three-year harassment campaign, purporting to be an investigation, of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Perez’ efforts culminated in a politically motivated lawsuit against Arpaio and his office for enforcing the provisions of SB 1070, a now gutted state law eviscerated by overreaching judges.

Tom Tancredo, a former five-term congressman, presidential candidate and author of “In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America’s Border and Security,” reintroduces Thomas Perez in this important commentary for WND, titled “Obama’s Harassment of Sheriff Joe.”  Even the sharpest memories can use refreshing. Do yourself a favor and read it.

Perez is so unworthy of support that when Obama rewarded him for his reprehensible assault on Sheriff Arpaio by promoting him to Secretary of Labor, the confirmation roll call vote was historic in that it was strictly along party lines. Given that Arizona’s Republicrat senators voted to confirm leftists Janet Napolitano, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, (Flake and McCain split their votes on Loretta Lynch) and frequently supported liberals to the federal judiciary, the fact that even they — no fans of career law enforcement professional Joe Arpaio — withheld their votes for Perez’ confirmation speaks volumes.

What also is worthy of note is that Thomas Perez is reportedly on Hillary’s short list as a Vice Presidential pick. Any Never-Trumpers with concerns about our dangerously porous border, the astronomical burdens to American taxpayers and loss of national sovereignty should  take note of the expansion of laxity with this calamitous selection.


McCain needs $100 grand….quick

June 28, 2016

Another “Friend” email has gone out from John McCain — including to many who detest being referred to as his friend.  He needs money and says he’ll accept any amount, including $5.

Sure thing.

Using “the royal we,” the 80-year-old running for his sixth six-year term, implores, “We have just under four days before our campaign’s most important fundraising deadline is here and all eyes are watching me and our campaign to see how strong we are.”

Skipping right past his Primary opponent, Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and conservative former state senator, McCain cunningly raises the specter of  “liberal Democrat Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick.“

If McCain’s so worried about Ann Kirkpatrick, why are the airwaves filled with deceptive ads fantastically accusing Kelli Ward of voting to help ISIS, a fictional feat that would be impossible for anyone to achieve in a state legislature. Is it any wonder the slippery McCain was censured by elected GOP state delegates? In retaliation, he used a San Francisco Obama donor to purge the party activists from the AZ GOP ranks. His underhanded tactics both in Arizona and in D.C. have conspired to make McCain the least popular U.S. senator.

His lobbyist friends won’t let him down. It’s a symbiotic relationship more commonly known as, “I’ll wash your back and you wash mine.” — which has mutually benefited them and him for decades.. 

But if McCain’s actually worried about money, all he has to do is roll over and tap Cindy Hensley McCain on the shoulder. It’s a perk of being married to a beer heiress, running one of the nation’s largest Anheuser-Busch distributors. 

Begging is so déclassé.


Unenviable status: AZ cities on “Extreme Poverty” list

June 27, 2016

John McCain & Jeff Flake remain committed to importing poverty

Number 2 on the list of American cities with pockets of extreme poverty, topped only by Fresno California, is what is widely regarded as the “Valley of the Sun” — Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, AZ. It’s a good bet the Valley, including numerous affluent areas, would hardly leap to mind as showcasing extreme poverty. 24/7 Wall St. gleans its information from census records.

Listed as Number 6 is Tucson.

The border town of Nogales, Arizona, population 20,699, with a poverty rate of 35.2%, comes in at Number 3 on the list of Poorest Towns in Every State.

Forbes reports that the nation’s highest unemployment is in the border town of El Centro, California which has a whopping 19.6% jobless rate. Yuma, Arizona, another border town, comes in at Number 2 with 18.0% unemployment.

The ongoing influx of uneducated and unskilled illegal aliens and accompanying crime rates continues its choke-hold on American cites. Taxpaying citizens are footing the bill for the numerous benefits they receive in addition to health care, schooling for their children and the costly burdens on the criminal justice system.

John McCain, at age 80 is running for yet another 6-year-term. He’s a .longtime advocate for amnesty for illegals — working with the late Ted Kennedy, then Jon Kyl,  and most recently organizing the Gang of Eight — partnering with his junior seatmate, Jeff Flake. Marco Rubio, Lindsey Grahamesty and a far left Democrat contingent including Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Michael Bennet and Robert Menendez were all part of the McCain/Flake scheme.

Watch these shocking news reports by WTHR Indiana revealing tax loopholes accessed by illegals that are costing Americans $ billions.

In the unlikely event  you’re able to get into one of McCain’s forums, where the audience is most often pre-selected by his handlers, it would be good to ask him why he’s intent on importing poverty. Simple question for a simple guy.

This editorial, “Sorry, But Illegal Aliens Cost the U.S. Plenty,” posted on Investor’s Business Daily is chock full of good information and includes intellectual pins to pop the untruthful bubbles that are floated by the left and McRINOs.


Americans for Prosperity: 2016 AZ Legislative “Heroes” MIA

June 25, 2016

Legislative Scorecard awards no “Hero of the Taxpayer” designation in latest report

On its website, the Arizona chapter of Americans for Prosperity writes that it works to improve the well-being of Arizona citizens by passing legislative policy reforms that expand economic freedom. The 2016 Legislative Scorecard is the 33rd annual scorecard put out by AFP-Arizona and the Arizona Federation of Taxpayers. The Scorecard assigns weights to bills according to their projected dollar impact to Arizona taxpayers, consumers, and producers ($1 million equals one point). The Fiscal Year 2016-2017 budget was scored according to how many millions of dollars the Legislature and Governor voted to spend above $9.4 billion — including supplemental spending increases to the FY 2015-2016 budget. Legislators are penalized on the Scorecard if key bills do not come to floor votes, but the Scorecard does allows for substitute bills that have similar policy impacts. The weighting of bills is adjusted for a probability factor and for a long-term policy value factor. AFP-Arizona traditionally assigns a triple weight to tax bills, using the Joint Legislative Budget Committee’s three-year Fiscal Notes when available.

All House and Senate members are listed and scored using these designations:

90-100% = Hero of the Taxpayer

70-79% = Friend of the Taxpayer

30-49% = Friend of Big Government

10-29% = Champion of Big Government

80-89% = Champion of the Taxpayer

60-69% = Not Bad

50-59% = Needs Improvement

0-9% = Hero of Big Government

There’s a lot to see here. The Arizona chapter of Americans for Prosperity Legislative Scorecard makes for interesting reading and provides a guide for tracking your legislators prior to marking your ballot. The site includes a brief description of each House and Senate bill as well as State Legislative Objectives for the 2016 Session. The Top Bills of the Session are also included.


Americans becoming more wary

June 14, 2016

Confidence in many established institutions dropping like a rock

Trust in banks, organized religion, news media, and congress fell significantly during the past decade, according to this recent Gallup survey.

The report reveals Americans clearly lack confidence in the institutions that affect their daily lives: the schools responsible for educating the nation’s children; the houses of worship that are expected to provide spiritual guidance; the banks that are supposed to protect Americans’ earnings; the U.S. Congress elected to represent the nation’s interests; the news media that claims it exists to keep them informed and the judiciary which is supposed to render unbiased decisions. The U.S. military remains held in high regard as does law enforcement and big business.

 The nearly across-the-board decline in trustworthiness of these previously solidly respected institutions has given rise to an increasingly jaundiced view, culminating in higher levels of distrust.

Seeing Red AZ is conducting our own poll, with this two-pronged question: Where has your level of confidence fallen most significantly, and why? We’re also interested in our reader’s solutions.


Mexico exports its own citizens to influence US elections

May 14, 2016

Politico reports that Mexico is promising a “counteroffensive” to defeat GOP candidate Donald Trump in the elections to be held in the USA this November. The impoverished country run by brutal drug cartels and steeped in corruption is encouraging its own nationals living in the United States to become U.S. citizens in order vote in our elections to influence the outcome. Mexican leaders chafe at the idea that we have the right to secure our sovereign border from the continuing invasion of foreign nationals.

This is how Mexico treats those who illegally Invade its borders. Mexico’s own immigration policies, provided by Discover the Networks, are worth checking out

Remittances sent to Mexico by its nationals living in the United States totaled nearly $24.8 billion in 2015 — more than the country makes from oil revenues. This is in addition to the foreign aid Mexico receives from American taxpayers.

It remains politically incorrect to speak the truth about Mexico, but facts are stubborn things.

We wrote, “Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns,” in 2011.  With the rise of Islamic terrorism in the intervening years, the numbers have only worsened.

As far back as October 2001, World Net Daily (WND) reported in an article titled Arab terrorists crossing border, that there has been a “tremendous increase in OTM’s (law enforcement’s term for ‘Other Than Mexicans’). Illegals from the former Soviet Union, Asia, and the Middle East are joining the flood of Mexicans, Central and South Americans — all slipping in through our incredibly accessible and porous Southern border. At the time, 15 years ago, apprehensions included illegals from the Sudan, Iraq, and even Iran.

How dare Mexico try to influence our elections!
