What’s Driving Mitt Romney?

June 9, 2020

The movie “Driving Miss Daisy” won the Academy Award for best picture decades ago. It featured an elderly white southern widow whose son hired a black chauffeur for her, after she wrecked her car. Set in the 1940’s, the story, which begins with their mutual hostility, ends with their deep friendship.

Mitt Romney is a longtime narcissist and political opportunist, who has moved to whichever state could afford him the next higher office he was seeking. Now a U.S. Senator from Utah, he was previously the governor of Massachusetts. He ran for president in 2008 losing the primary to John McCain — and in 2012 lost to Barack Obama. Irate that he was unable to attain the presidency after so judiciously setting his path, he maliciously voted to convict President Trump in the Democrat’s contrived impeachment trial, becoming the only senator in U.S. history to vote to convict a president of their own party.

As to our question, about what’s driving Mitt…Most recently it’s been difficult to escape photos and video clips of the duplicitous Mitt marching in solidarity with the ‘Black Lives Matters’ protesters, who joined in American cites with looters and arsonists wantonly destroying $billions in property and engaging in vicious assaults.

Though they are now leaders in the “Defund and Replace” America’s police officers, Mitt has bonded with them and is on-board with their reprehensible agenda. Chicago, with higher death rates than global war zones, with mostly black victims, stands as a stunning example of lawlessness under Democrat leadership. William Hale Thompson (elected 1915 to 1923 and again from 1927 to 1931) was the most recent Republican to have served as the city’s mayor. Mitt hasn’t shown his face there.

And where was he for most of his 73 years when the LDS Church he was born into prohibited black men of African descent from being ordained to the church’s priesthood? It wasn’t until 1978, the church’s First Presidency declared through a revelation, that the restriction had been lifted.

This explanation was published by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 2013.

Under the priesthood ban, black men and women were unable to hold any significant church callings, be leaders or serve missions. For men, the priesthood is required for many leadership and church callings and is given to virtually every Latter-day Saint male as early as age 11. When Brigham Young instituted the priesthood restriction in 1852, black members were barred from many leadership and service positions. In 1952, President McKay banned blacks from speaking at priesthood meetings and firesides.

Where was Mitt?  He didn’t protest or march in support of principled blacks who were denied full participation in the Latter-day Saints church. They had to wait for a revelation. Yet corrupt and immoral thieves and vandals have Mitt’s full support.

What’s driving Mitt Romney?

AZ Republic contemptibly provides cover for hate group

April 9, 2020

Hillary-endorsing, leftwing newspaper engages in deliberate mischaracterizations, a hallmark of what has been identified as fake news

Recently the failing, leftist AZ Republic headlined an article, “SPLC: Virus could mean spread of hate.” Richard Ruelas was unmothballed to deliver a defense for Southern Poverty Law Center, a renowned hate group. Patriot and church groups are reliably in the sights of the radical organization.

Kristen Waggoner, general counsel and senior vice president of U.S. legal division and communications at Alliance Defending Freedom, the nation’s largest religious freedom legal advocacy organization, responded in a op-ed headlined, “Hate list is used to smear conservative groups like Alliance Defending Freedom.” She is featured in this 2017 SRAZ exposé,Networks’ disgraceful allegations against Christian legal group.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) multi-pronged fundraising modus operandi is based on an ever-expanding Hate Map that deliberately mischaracterizes victims as perpetrators of hatred. Alliance Defending Freedom, churches and the Border Patrol are among those showcased.

Watch (video) as Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins tells Fox News’ Tucker Carlson how his organization was placed on the infamous hate list and then targeted by a gunman who entered the organization’s D.C. headquarters, shooting a security guard. The gunman ultimately was sentenced to 25 years.

The hard-left Washington Post used this bland headline to describe the shooting, Morning shooting in Northwest D.C.

The SPLC’s skewed policy is so egregious, this absurdity is an example of its Hatewatch blog that deceitfully claims it “monitors and exposes the activities of the American radical right.” 

March 23, 2020:  “The Trump administration took steps to block asylum seekers from entering the U.S.-Mexico border amid the COVID-19 pandemic. This nativist policy course has been pushed by anti-immigrant pundits and hate groups from the time the crisis started to unfold.”

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart will long be remembered for his quote describing his threshold for obscenity in a 1964 case: “I know it when I see it.” So it is with hatred. It can’t be made palatable by a ruthless perpetrator denying its own obvious engagement in evil.


Abdul-Jabbar suffers from acute case of TDS

March 23, 2020

Trump Derangement Syndrome claims another victim

It’s been fifty years since basketball great Lew Alcindor, Jr. shook off his father’s name, converted to Islam and re-christened himself Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He obviously didn’t realize he was honoring Arab slave traders as he rejected his American name. He also boycotted the 1968 Summer Olympics by opting not to try out for the U.S. Men’s Olympic Basketball team, which went on to capably win the gold medal. Abdul-Jabbar’s decision to shun the games was in protest of what he strangely regarded the unequal treatment of blacks in the United States, setting the stage for National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick to bend a knee rather than stand for the National Anthem decades later — though they both made $multi-millions and were idolized by fans.

This historical ignorance and rejection of America was, for a brief moment, voguish, as esteemed prize fighter Cassius Clay, Jr., also embraced Islam, ditched his father’s name and became Muhammed Ali.  He also used his new found faith as a cover for draft dodging during the Vietnam War. The ignorant Ali announced, “I ain’t got no quarrel with those Vietcong,” the communist troops aligned with ruthless dictator Ho Chi Minh, who was responsible for countless deaths in his own country and loss of life and limb of American servicemen trying to bring stability to those living under the brutal regime.

The lack of historical relevancy is worth noting since radical leftist Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has recently attacked President Donald Trump, comparing him to Nazis in Hunters Series, as reported in detail by Jay Maxson of NewsBusters. Abdul-Jabbar’s visceral Trump hatred spews like a geyser.  He also conveniently ignores the fact that the Nazi Third Reich tortured and slaughtered millions of minorities, including Jews, gypsies, and the infirm. Another pertinent fact that the black Muslim converts astonishingly disregard and as black conservative talk show host, columnist, author and lawyer Larry Elder pointed out in this column, “many know little to nothing about the vast role played by Arab and Muslim slavers in the African slave trade.”

Though the object of hero worship by fans of all races, Abdul-Jabbar was known to be rude to admirers and developed an arrogant penchant for insultingly reading the newspaper while giving interviews.

And who would have guessed that this historical revisionist actually graduated UCLA with a B.A in history?


Why do Dems have an aversion to God?

February 2, 2020

Watch as Democrats delete God from congressional proceedings as witnesses are sworn in:

 

This is not new for them. Remember the chaos that erupted at the 2012 Democrat National Convention over the insertion of the word “God” or the recognition of Jerusalem into their platform? Seeing Red AZ covered the shameful episode then. Even those conducting the meeting were confounded as the boorish delegates loudly protested and booed.

 

Although our founding documents did not endorse a specific religion, they do acknowledge God. The two key founding documents in American history are the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The first explains why we exist as a nation. Not only does the Declaration mention God four times, most importantly, it says that our rights come from the Creator.

In President George Washington’s first proclamation in 1789, declaring a national day of Thanksgiving, he referenced God 16 times.

He obviously wasn’t a Democrat.

The unspoken link between military base carnages

December 8, 2019

What type of vetting takes place in today’s politically correct environment?

Just over ten years ago — November 5, 2009 — a previously unthinkable act of violence occurred at Fort Hood, in Texas. Nidal Hasan M.D., a U.S. Army major, psychiatrist and Islamic extremist, fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others, after ranting openly to colleagues why infidels should be beheaded. During the trial in which he was sentenced to death, Hasan acknowledged that he pulled the trigger in a crowded waiting room where troops were getting final medical checkups before deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Fast forward to the morning of Friday December 6, 2019. A shooter identified as Second Lt. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, opened fire in a classroom at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida killing three people and wounding 8 others, including two deputies, one of whom was responsible for killing the murderer.

Among the base victims was Joshua Kaleb Watson, 23, a recent graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and officer on deck at the time of the massacre, who alerted first responders to the location of the shooter even after he had been shot multiple times. He was training to become a Navy pilot … a goal that will never be realized.

There is a connective thread between the two horrific incidents of terrorism on U.S. military bases training foreign nationals in the use of the aircraft we send to their countries. Both of the assassins were authorized to be on the base where they committed their carnage and both were devout Muslims, making frequent trips back to their homeland.

Alshamrani entered the United States in 2017, when he began training with the United States military. He attended school and began taking classes in English and aviation at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.

Prior to Friday’s massacre Alshamrani hosted a dinner party at his residence where the entertainment was watching videos of mass murders.

One of the students who attended the dinner party was videotaped outside the building while the shooting was taking place. Two other Saudi students reportedly watched from a car. According to an unnamed U.S. official, 10 Saudi students were being held on the base Saturday while several others remained unaccounted for. He also said the FBI was examining social media posts and investigating whether the assassin acted alone or was connected to a larger group.

It’s important to acknowledge that there are American Muslims who are patriotic and fighting against the very things these craven haters believe in. Arizonans are fortunate to have among us Zuhdi Jasser, MD an American medical doctor specializing in internal medicine and nuclear cardiology. Dr. Jasser is a former lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy. He served as staff internist in the Office of the Attending Physician of the United States Congress. Jasser is an author and frequent guest on nationally televised programs where he makes the distinction between the religion and politicized Islam. His website is the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. It’s our sole link today.  We hope our readers will visit it.


George Washington’s Thanksgiving proclamation, & the newspaper’s negative emphasis

November 28, 2019


On this Thanksgiving day we reflect on the many blessings we enjoy as citizens of this great nation, and wish the abundant bounties of this uniquely American holiday to each and every one of our readers. 

George Washington’s 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation:

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to “recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”

Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best. Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the 3d day of October, A.D. 1789.

But wait! In case you become too comfortable with faith and tradition on this day of Thanksgiving, the barely surviving Arizona Republic newspaper runs a full page editorial titled, “Faith, family and old traditions are in decline in America,” questioning whether “a holiday that embodies all can survive our modern world?” It carries the names of the entire editorial board, editorial page editor Phil Boas and executive editor, Greg Burton.

Today’s issue also alerts us to Thanksgiving being “celebrated” as a “National Day of Mourning” by United Native Indians of New England who have been holding this “solemn day of Remembrance” since 1970, at Portsmouth, Massachusetts — where the Pilgrims landed, survived hardships and celebrated the first Thanksgiving, sharing their bounty with the native tribes.


Demonic Dems aim to doom Trump presidency

October 30, 2019

On the cusp of Halloween, Democrat congressional ghouls are lighting the fire under the impeachment caldron. The House Rules Committee will debate this contemptible 8-page resolution today to provide a “pathway forward” for the impeachment of President Trump.

When President Trump recently used the word “lynching” to describe this outrageous action against him, he was castigated for appropriating a term that one race now thinks it owns.

The word Holocaust has long been used to describe the Nazi’s systematic slaughter of 6 million Jews during WWII. In recent years has been appropriated to describe the legalized murders of pre-born human babies at the hands of abortionists since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. These figures are based on the numbers used by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, a division of Planned Parenthood of America.

In both instances, Holocaust describes gruesome, unconscionable deaths; the taking of innocent lives by those who considered them inconsequential.

President Trump is indeed being lynched by a ferocious mob, though they are wearing business suits instead of white hoods. They are assembled in congress rather than driving down back country roads after nightfall carrying torches to terrorize, torture and kill blacks. 

Yes. Words have meaning. President Trump has been maligned, demonized and colluded against since the day of his Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration. The left-wing Hillary-supporting media, congressional Democrats and Hollywood elites have dedicated themselves to defaming and conducting a witch hunt against him.

Earlier today, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) summed up the Democrat‘s actions stating:

“They have denied President Trump basic due process and are cutting his counsel out of the process in an unprecedented way. The House Democrats new resolution does not change any of that. The draft resolution that has been released does nothing of the sort. It falls way short, way short.” He added, “It does not confer on President Trump the most basic rights of due process or seemingly alter Chairman Schiff’s unfair process in the House Intelligence Committee in any way whatsoever.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), nearly 80, who has lost control to the radical “squad,” young enough to be her granddaughters, has back-pedaled on her lack of enthusiasm to impeach. Now she is moving forward with ferocious vigor.

U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), an extreme leftist partisan who has conducted closed door meetings with the single goal of removing the elected President of the United States, has bared his fangs in anticipation of the kangaroo court proceedings. Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs (R-CD5) exposed Schiff in this commentary.

The Bible instructs us to gird our loins for the upcoming battle.


Americans rally to Pres. Trump with record fundraising

October 3, 2019

The lamestream media, relentlessly pushing the Dem’s impeachment spew, would have us believe President Donald Trump is hanging on by a thin thread and has lost the support of the American people.

Recently reported FEC third quarter fundraising totals belie that myth. His reelection campaign has broken all previous records. President Trump and the Republican National Committee (RNC) raised nearly $125 million.

The president now has $156 million cash on hand with approximately $310 million raised so far this year. He’ll need it all and more to get his message out in this hostile environment. America’s voters will continue to respond. He has been right all along:
