Far-left Warnock wins in Georgia, credits conservative God

December 7, 2022

In Tuesday’s exceedingly close senate run-off election in Georgia, incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock won by the slimmest of margins as he disappointingly held back Herschel Walker by a razor thin 51.4% to Walker’s 48.6%. The U.S. Senate is currently split 50-50, with dems having control due to VP Kamala Harris’ tie-breaking vote. Warnock’s win expands their majority in 2023.

Warnock, a senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, is an anomaly, invoking God when it serves his purposes to do so, even as he supports abortion. He stated at a campaign event in Athens Georgia the day prior to the election, “I voted to protect Roe v. Wade, and I would do that again.”  Warnock is currently in a legal battle with his ex-wife, Oulèye Ndoye, who has accused him of neglecting to see his children during his custody days and leaving her with unpaid child care expenses. 

And though slippery Warnock won the election to a six-year term, he attempts to exploit non-existent “voter suppression.”

“There are those who will look at the outcome of this race and say that there is no voter suppression in Georgia,” Warnock stated. “Let me be clear: Just because people endured long lines that wrapped around buildings some blocks long, just because they endured the rain and the cold and all kinds of tricks in order to vote, doesn’t mean that voter suppression does not exist. It simply means that you the people decided that your voices will not be silenced.”

After Warnock thanked his supporters, he declared, “God should get the glory” for his win.

AZ dem colludes with Republicrat in self-promotion scheme

November 30, 2022

Two former politicos interject themselves into area in which they have no influence

Being out of the spotlight poses a challenge for former office holders who were smitten by their own images and what they regarded as brilliance pouring out of their mouths. All they had to do to get publicity as elected officials was have their lackeys call the news media to hear their latest spews intended to keep them in the public eye prior to the next election.

Former Attorney General Samuel Pearson Goddard III, used the less stuffy name “Terry” a contraction of Trey or the Third to bring him down to the level of the common folks whose votes he needed to succeed his father who was governor. But the onetime Phoenix mayor found higher office eluded him. His fellow democrats thought him haughty and Republicans regarded him as a joke when he challenged Fife Symington for governor ridiculing the fact that he was also a “third” who attended a private eastern prep school, as did Goddard. Symington easily won that race.

Democrat Goddard has now aligned with what should be an unlikely new political partner…unless you take the time to follow his odd political meanderings since leaving office. Terry Goddard’s new team member is Richard Romley, also a believer in chummy nicknames. As “Rick” Romley, the man who won office as a Republican, has now been able to reveal himself as the democrat he has always been — excluding the expediency of garnering GOP votes to vault himself into the Maricopa County Attorney‘s Office.

Now the duo of Rick and Terry are pressuring Attorney General Mark Brnovich and Cochise County Attorney Brian McIntyre to consider criminal charges against the Cochise County supervisors who recently refused to certify the county’s election. Neither Romley nor Goddard have any standing in how other elected officials in other Arizona counties opt to handle a potential ballot recount, though they can bluster and whine to garner attention. Their emailed letter can be read here.

They each need a cup of hot cocoa and an early bedtime. They also should come to terms that neither they nor their views hold any rational consequences. Many Arizonans have no idea who these two has-beens are and care less about their views.

Another McCain seeking a political perch? Spare us

When your name is incendiary and you have political aspirations, it becomes imperative that nothing is left to chance to control the damage before tossing your hat into the ring. That would be the only reason James “Jimmy” Hensley McCain is sending out Thanksgiving wishes…a new cordiality, in which he has never previously engaged. His emailed missive, given cover under the auspices of the McCain Institute Foundation, also includes a solicitation for funds with instructions “to consult your tax advisor for specific tax advice.”

Dear Friends,

As our family prepares to celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, I wanted to take the time to thank you for supporting my Dad through the years. As we continue my Dad’s fight to advance freedom, prosperity, security and human dignity for the benefit of all, we would be grateful to have you join our efforts.

One of Dad’s favorite holidays was always Thanksgiving. Some of my best memories are him on the deck, frying turkeys and enjoying the day with family and friends. From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you have a wonderful day.

Best wishes,


James H. McCain

Lessons to be learned from 2022 General Election

November 19, 2022

Victor Davis Hanson’s most recent column “Let the Blame Games Begin?” provides an intelligent review of the just concluded 2022 General Elections. Conservative Hanson raises cogent points in what could be described as a post mortem, though one we should learn from, as he enumerates each misstep.

Hanson poses, then answers the question, “Who or what was responsible for the Republican nationwide collapse in the midterms? After all, pundits, politicos, and pollsters all predicted a “red tsunami.”

Longtime readers of SRAZ are aware of the high esteem in which Prof. Hanson (bio) is held on this site. Do yourself a favor and read the linked, thought-provoking and instructive article.

Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer revealed as anti-GOP leftist 

November 18, 2022

Fake Republican Richer makes us poorer

Today we take our readers directly to the source — The World Tribune — which does an exemplary job of exposing the astonishing duplicity of Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer. Headlined, “Top Maricopa County vote counter addressed conference organized by anti-Kari Lake group,” Joe Schaeffer‘s report is a must read for any political truth seeker.

Known by the preposterous name, ‘Principles First,’ the group’s Preamble begins with these words:

“For some time now, the conservative movement has been in the throes of an identity crisis. Fealty to party and politicians has completely obscured the values that give substance to our public associations. Today in America, who you support has become more important than what you believe. As a result, the terms “conservative” and “Republican” are now mere team names that have lost all meaning.”

It has become increasingly clear that duplicitous Stephen Richer, openly viewing conservatives as in the midst of an “identity crisis” is not the conservative Republican he campaigned as.

The local newspaper’s former sob-story reporter, magically turned politically astute, expressed shock that Seeing Red AZ would view Richer as the phony he is. We expect honesty from those who opt to call themselves conservatives, a concept the left is unable to grasp.

In 2021 Richer went to CNN to peddle his fakery. The leftist network was all too happy to print his editorial, “GOP Arizona official: Why I had to speak the truth after Trump’s falsehoods.” Obviously, we have not provided a link.

Displaying his dedication to the office he ran for and the people he campaigned to represent, Richer using his personal account, tweeted:


Replying to @schwanderer

“I don’t care if not re-elected. I can do other stuff with my life.”

It’s time we granted this duplicitous fraud his “stuffing” wish.

Has Been and Never Was hammer AZ GOP leader Dr. Kelli Ward

November 17, 2022

Proof no good deed goes unpunished

In a bizarre case of a lopsided internecine war — when unity should definitely prevail — Arizona Republicans are ringside at a political bout. Matt Salmon, a former congressman, former state GOP chairman, twice former gubernatorial candidate who waited until the last week prior to the primary election to withdraw from the 2022 race, (ensuring his name remained on ballots) now takes the bizarre step of beating up on a woman. Not just any woman, mind you. Dr. Kelli Ward, who was elected to two-terms as a state senator and twice elected as Arizona Republican chairman, is also an osteopathic physician…as is her husband, Col. Michael Ward, D.O. who served tours of duty in war zones and was the flight surgeon for Arizona’s Air National Guard. She continued to practice medicine in emergency departments in Lake Havasu City and Kingman, Arizona, during her time in the senate. There is no question they believe in giving back to their communities and state.

But missing-the-spotlight Salmon is heaping blame on GOP Chair, Dr. Kelli Ward, irresponsibly holding her accountable for Republican losses in the recent General Election. He previously exchanged appreciative platitudes with Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson, likely hoping for her win — followed by a job. Neither materialized. 

Salmon, always full of himself, will never hold public office again. Kelli Ward is deserving of his praise for her efforts on behalf of Arizona Republican Party candidates. Instead, the man who left the party leadership position under similar conditions assigns her guilt. 

Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson lavished praise on Salmon for his decision to exit the race, believing his decision cleared the way for her to singly challenge Republican Kari Lake. We know how that turned out.

On April 14, 2022 we posted, “Karrin Kunasek Taylor Robson: AZ Gov candidate, re-invents herself.” If you missed it, it provides an in-depth insight. Beware! She’s got the wealth and time to reinvent herself yet again.

Fmr. Pres. Trump announces 2024 reelection bid

November 16, 2022

Announcement ignored by worried leftwing media

Making his highly anticipated announcement from his family’s Florida Mar-a-Lago home, Donald Trump revealed Tuesday that he would again seek the Republican nomination for president in 2024.

“America’s comeback starts right now,” Trump told cheering supporters. “Unlike other presidents, I kept my promises.”

“The world was at peace, America was prospering, and our country was on track for an amazing future— because I made big promises to the American people and, unlike other Presidents, I kept my promises,” he said. “Under our leadership, we were a great and glorious nation, something you haven’t heard for quite a long period of time. We were a strong nation, and importantly we were a free nation. Now, we are a nation in decline. We are a failing nation.”

Following two years of a Biden debacle, marked by record inflation and soaring prices, a wide-open border and escalating crime rates in American cities, frail octogenarian Joe Biden, who misspeaks and falls, while often appearing confused, and ignored, promises us more of the same.

Democrats fearing Trump’s political resurgence hoped their two contrived impeachments would keep him from returning to the political stage. But Donald Trump retains the power to energize his base who will eagerly work on his behalf. Americans have grown weary of paying astronomical prices for basics such as homes, rent, food and fuel and long for a return to businessman Trump’s stellar economy. Biden has spent his entire career — beginning in 1970 as a councilman in Delaware — the nation’s second smallest state, feeding at the government trough. As president, Biden has presided over an economic disaster.

Schizophrenic, failing AZ Republic can’t navigate election snafus

November 14, 2022

The local newspaper headlines, “Election Day saw few major voting problems,” (actually using the word “problems” instead of the left’s trendy favorite “issues.”) Yet the front page (and jump page) admits “County’s voting site printer problem evenly spread.” Then lapsing back to “issues” it lists, “Polling places with equipment issues.” That report goes on to name 70 such places. You read that right…70!

It took four reporters to cover this debacle.

The same edition runs an ad titled, “Attention Subscribers”:

“Access the newspaper you know and love online with the eNewspaper!” The dying publication which is desperately attempting to stay afloat, is unable to afford publishing or distributing hardcopy editions.

It won’t be long before there will be no options.

This December 6, 2014 article in the Harvard Political Review was right on target with its prediction, “The Future of Print: Newspapers Struggle to Survive in the Age of Technology.”

By Nov 25, 2019,The Phoenix Business Journal headlined, “Analysis: Arizona Republic’s circulation decline among steepest for Gannett papers.”

In 2019, Seeing Red AZ, wrote, “AZ Republic: homeless vagrant on borrowed time,” which continues to be read years later.
