When universities call themselves “Liberal Arts,” they mean it

May 12, 2023

Infanticide masquerading as abortions available to “All/Any Students”

A liberal arts university in Connecticut says it will now cover the costs of “any student” who decides to get an abortion or a Plan B contraceptive, regardless of their insurance status.

Connecticut’s Wesleyan University recently announced, following a pressure campaign from the university’s Young Democratic Socialists of America chapter, the school would now pay for presumably female students to get an abortion or emergency (after conception) contraceptives. The school has also committed to picking up the transportation costs incurred by “such students.”

The decision comes after the Young Democratic Socialists of America chapter at Wesleyan collected over 700 signatures on a petition that urged the school to ensure “all students are able to overcome financial burdens to, and lack of transportation for, abortion procedures.”

The blue state of Connecticut has no restrictions on abortions and encourages those who choose to abort a living, 6-month fully formed, and healthy baby to “Shout your abortion!”

“Politicians should not get between a person and their doctor. As long as I am governor, reproductive rights will be protected in Connecticut, and I will do everything in my power to block laws from being passed that restrict those rights.”

– Governor Ned Lamont

Biden admin increases illegal surge, as education takes a deep dive

May 4, 2023

Today we take our readers directly to a recent FOX News report, headlined,  “WATCH: Karine Jean-Pierre gets agitated when pressed on her claim illegal immigration down 90% under Biden.” It was followed by this bold-face sub-headline, “Fiscal year 2022 ended with 2,378,944 migrant encounters, highest ever recorded.”

Dems believe Americans are fools, don’t pay attention to facts and are easily duped. Illegal immigration to the U.S., the extent of which cannot be fully known due to the millions who boldly evade federal Border Patrol agents, rose at a faster rate in the first nine months of Joe Biden’s tenure than any time in the Border Patrol’s 97-year history.

Yahoo News reports, “The large majority of the Border Patrol’s encounters took place at the Mexican border. Over the past decade, between 30,000 to 50,000 people have been encountered illegally crossing the southern border each month. That number dropped to below 20,000 at the start of the pandemic, primarily as the result of a Trump administration order that any child, adult, or family who illegally crossed would be sent back to their home country rather than taken into custody.”

That rationale is not part of the dem mindset, which views illegals as future democrat voters. It is inconsequential that we are losing our country to the invaders.

This recently released National Review report, “American Students Fail in Civics and History Testing,” should be of major concern to every American. How can future generations feel a compulsion to honor and protect a nation they know nothing about? Liberals are destroying our education system, which will, in turn leave our nation in shambles.

Teacher’s unions influence in democrat politics is broad and well financed. The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) has 1.7 million dues paying members, and the National Education Association (NEA) has more than 3 million paying members. That’s well over half of Biden’s popular vote margin of victory over former President Trump — a hefty chunk of the electorate. According to the NEA, one out of every 39 voters lives in a household with at least one NEA member.

Open Secrets displays the hefty amount of money spent in 2023 on teacher’s unions by educrat lobbyists. What do they get in return for the cash payouts? It won’t just be a shiny red apple.

Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers, is a labor leader with a law degree, and member of the AFL–CIO. She is the former president of the United Federation of Teachers. And, of course, she is fashionably married to another woman.

Biden proclaims transgender day, demands we “respect” them

April 13, 2023

Joe pushes new-sex for kids as the latest mantra of the left

Our economy is an unparalleled disaster and the world is on shaky ground with tyrannical muscle-flexing nations creating havoc, but Joe Biden’s surrogates have a massive load of agenda items to shove down the throats of the American people. Topping the list is transgenderism, the latest calling card of the left. 

Biden recently declared transgenderism “celebrates the joy, strength, and absolute courage. Transgender people are some of the bravest people I know — people who have too often had to put their jobs, relationships, and lives on the line just to be their true selves. Today, we show millions of transgender and nonbinary Americans that we see them, they belong, and they should be treated with dignity and respect.  Their courage has given countless others strength, but no one should have to be brave just to be themselves.  Every American deserves that freedom.” Declaring “Transgender Americans shape our Nation’s soul — proudly serving in the military, curing deadly diseases, holding elected office, running thriving businesses, fighting for justice, raising families, and much more,” Biden issued a proclamation marking March 31, 2023, as the Transgender Day of Visibility, bizarrely adding a racial component.

ABC News, taking the perspective of the odd transgender affirming aficionados uses the word “targeting“ when describing enforcing laws ensuring underage children can engage in these “therapies,” without informing their parents. It lists the states — Arizona among them — where the vast majority of bans target people under the age of legal majority, which for most of the United States is the age of 18. Gender-affirming care refers to social affirmation often assigning newly “preferred” pronouns, puberty blockers, hormone therapy and surgical procedures, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Hormone therapy refers to testosterone hormones for trans boys (born as girls) and estrogen for trans girls (born as boys) taken in early adolescence onward.

Comprehensive reading, history, math, geography, science all take a back seat to genetic sex altering. This is part of a concerted “dumbing down” of America, making us easier for takeover by our adversaries, who see foolish, self-imposed weakness thriving during the Biden administration.

WSJ Poll: American values take a nose dive

April 1, 2023

This should be an April Fools’ Day joke, but it’s not

Belief in God, patriotism, marriage, having children, confidence in the economy and public schools have all fallen dramatically according to this disturbing Wall Street Journal/NORC poll.

Take time to acquaint yourself with the sagging optimism exhibited by Americans, who traditionally have expressed patriotic enthusiasm regarding our national standing. What has changed?  Those paying attention know it begins with a “B,” ends with an “N,” verbally fumbles and frequently falls. His backup is the articulate VP Kamala Harris who, “reiterates” seen here in an official visit to Zambia:

Protecting Parents’ Rights with the ‘Given Name Act’

February 15, 2023

Radical gender ideology hidden from parents as schools encourage students to experiment with “transgenderism”

The Heritage Foundation has a newly issued Fact Sheet that should be mandatory reading for every parent, guardian and engaged grandparent of a K-12 age student. Changing names and pronouns is the first step in the implementation of radical gender ideology, which eventually leads to life-altering drugs and irreversible medical procedures. Without substantiation from a well-respected organization such as Heritage, this topic would be impossible to fathom. Read the brief ‘Given Name Act.’

The National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) shows reading and math test scores are significantly below the norm but manipulating pronouns takes center stage.

Dennis Prager defines LGBTQ+ ‘Pride’ as Totalitarian

As those who have read his thought-provoking books and listen to his nationally syndicated radio show know, Dennis Prager is a reliable conservative voice. His biography ends with these words: “When Dennis Prager speaks, America listens.”

With this intro, Seeing Red AZ brings our readers Prager‘s most recent, enlightening column, “LGBTQ+ ‘Pride’ Is Totalitarian,” On occasion we have posted informative columns under the heading, “Weekend Reading Guaranteed To Make You Smarter.” The column we’re directing our readers to today is too timely and pertinent to wait five days to read.

Sex comes to the AZ legislature

January 4, 2023

Public schools are barely making the grade in imparting education to students in what is providing the left an easily controllable populace, short-changed on history and not even able to find China on a map. Cursive has been relegated to a relic and math is “too difficult” to bother with. We covered this educrat catastrophe recently in, ‘As Nat’l education report card reveals sinking test scores teacher’s unions support 4-day school week.’ Our children will be ill-equipped to be competitive in the international arena, but our boys can wear teal satin tights and girls will know the power of being known as Tom while at school.

Gaining prominence among educrats is the newly trendy “gender fluidity,” accompanying “preferred pronouns“ as teachers encourage Johnny to use feminine pronouns and Suzy is given the go-ahead to use male identifiers. Some classrooms have a closet filled with boys and girls clothing which the children are encouraged to wear in class as they take on a new sexual persona. This is all done without parent’s knowledge as the young students “role play.”

Fortunately Arizona’s state legislature has Sen. John Kavanagh, a Fountain Hills Republican, who has introduced SB 1001,bearing the reference title: “pronouns; biological sex; school policies.” It has just been introduced in the 2023 legislative session, so it will likely take a few days for the full text to appear.

Sen. John Kavanagh’s bio and answers to questions can be read in the pro-life, pro-family Center for Arizona Policy Arizona’s Voter’s Guide.

In the November 8, 2022 District 3 election, Sen. Kavanagh recently defeated his democrat challenger 61.0% to 39%.

As Nat’l education report card reveals sinking test scores teacher’s unions support 4-day school week

January 2, 2023

As the world becomes ever more competitive, the harsh reality of America’s plunging educational test scores should provide a reality check. Blame is placed on the COVID pandemic, while omitting the fact that teacher’s unions are now advocating a four-day school week.  This comes as The Nation’s Report Card reveals disastrously low test scores. We have linked the Arizona’s Fourth Grade scores, though grades 8 and 12 are also accessible — showing proficiency in mathematics, reading, science and writing. Each area shows a “significant decrease from the national public average, indicated by plunging arrows. Despite the low scores, Arizona’s Liberty Elementary School District’s Governing Board approved a change to a four-day school week, which will begin in the 2023-2024 school year.

In addition to curtailing education studies by slashing a classroom day each week, there is a new educrat language threat including the use of code words, “diversity, equity and inclusion,”  for marginalizing some students to artificially benefit others. Education, including history, geography, math, English and grammar, are given short shrift. Public schools have eliminated cursive, so no one will have a signature.

When Robert Chanin, general counsel to the National Education Association, retired after 41 years, in his farewell address to the NEA convention he spoke honestly, (shocking video) stating,” Despite what some among us would like to believe it is not because of our creative ideas; it is not because of the merit of our positions; it is not because we care about children; and it is not because we have a vision of a great public school for every child.

The NEA and its affiliates are effective advocates because we have power. And we have power because there are more than 3.2 million people who are willing to pay us hundreds of million of dollars in dues each year because they believe that we are the unions that can most effectively represent them; the union that can protect their rights and advance their interests as education employees.

This is not to say that the concern of NEA and its affiliates with closing achievement gaps, reducing drop-out rates, improving teacher quality, and the like are unimportant or inappropriate. To the contrary these are the goals that guide the work we do. But they need not, and must not, be achieved at the expense of due process, employee rights, or collective bargaining.

That is simply too high a price to pay.”

AZ University presidents get massive salary increases, tribes get free tuition

November 20, 2022

The Arizona Board of Regents appears to go to great lengths to keep the public informed, but don’t be conned by a multitude of “pursuants.”  The key words are, “the board will call the meeting to order and immediately convene in executive session.” That translates to “cloak of darkness.”

According to a lengthy report in the local newspaper, Arizona’s university presidents at ASU, UA and NAU all will get steep pay increases granted by the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR), who unanimously approved the salary increases and contract extensions based on their annual performance reviews. The report states, “Regents raised no questions or comments prior to their vote.” The term of a regent is eight years, twice as long as the governor who appointments them.

Arizona State University President Michael Crow’s base salary (excluding numerous perks and bonuses) is now $809,846, up 5% from $771,282 a year ago. University of Arizona President Robert Robbins will receive $792,241 in base salary, Northern Arizona University President Jose Luis Cruz Rivera will get a base salary of $576,800, up a hefty 12% from when he assumed the position just six months ago. Crow, who was appointed in 2002, is among the nation’s highest paid public university presidents. Arizona’s governor, who runs the entire state, is paid $95,000 — minus all of the perks paid to the university presidents. Governors are limited to two consecutive four-year terms in office.

In addition to their salaries, the university presidents also receive housing and vehicle allowances, numerous benefits, retirement contributions and the opportunity for hefty bonuses each year based on “achieving various goals for their universities.” All of their contracts were extended.

Regents “approved payouts for achieving some of those goals and set new goals for each of the presidents and the university system over the next year and next several years,” ensuring the money stream keeps flowing.

ABOR members previously discussed the contracts in closed-door executive session “because they are employment and salary issues.” The public, whose taxes fund these excessive salaries, and cash strapped students, often working multiple part-time jobs to make ends meet, as their tuition and fees rise yearly, are unable to be privy to the details of those conversations.

The latest absurdity comes in the form of NAU’s announcement that it will begin providing free tuition for members of any of Arizona’s 22 federally recognized tribes. The University of Arizona already has such a program in place as does Arizona State University. Guess whose tuition will be raised to cover this extremist separatism?
