Sunday wakeup call from prominent religious leader

January 15, 2017

Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europe’s dominant religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans.

He added, the number of Eastern Europeans arriving over the past few years has also hit the quality of life for native Italians, “We help without delay those coming from outside and we forget many poor and old Italians who are eating from the trash,” the archbishop said. “We need policies that take care of Italians first: our young people and the unemployed.”

“We have a weak Christian faith,” he stated. “The Church nowadays does not work well and seminaries are empty. Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline.”

Regardless of your religion, this Breitbart report is a wake-up call.

The Gatestone Institute has been covering Europe‘s migrant crisis. These are just some of the articles and videos that address the growing problem.


Hypocrite McCain holds hearings on cyber security

January 7, 2017

Yes, THIS John McCain. Who could forget his admission as the 2008 ultimately failed GOP presidential candidate that he was “an illiterate” who has to rely on his wife for all the computer assistance he can get.

Fast forward three years, and we find McCain tweeting with pseudo-celeb Snooki and chatting with leftist open borders advocate and multi-billionaire Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg. The suddenly tech-savvy McCain now opines no one watches television anymore. Why then did he dump $ millions into deceptive TV ads trashing his able opponent this past election cycle?

The daily newspaper, which has long assigned a Johnny-McOne-Note reporter to cover the out-of-touch octogenarian, runs a Page One article and oversized photo of McCain at a senate committee hearing with the headline, “McCain talks tough on election hacking.”

Suddenly the self proclaimed computer “illiterate” is advocating “serious consequences for cyber attacks.” Yet  James Clapper, director of national intelligence unequivocally asserted in response to a leading question, “They did not change any vote tallies or anything of that sort.”

The fact is, the much covered hacks were not only damaging to Democrats but deeply embarrassing as they revealed themselves to be everything they claim to oppose. Donna Brazile, the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee even refused to apologize for giving the questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of a presidential debate.

Let’s be clear.  Cyber attacks are not new or unique to rogue nations. But the issue here is that the damning material released shows high ranking Democrat advisers at their worst in their efforts to ride Hillary’s coattails to the White House.  The fact that she didn’t win not only rankles Democrats, but also John McCain, who previously called her a rock star “he could support for president.” Ultimaley he withdrew his lukewarm support from Republican nominee Donald Trump. Sharyl Attkisson’s informative exposé  Eight Facts on the “Russian Hacks” is definitely worth your time.

McCain’s hearings couldn’t be more partisan if his liberal pal Chuck Schumer was conducting them. The thrust of the effort is to call Donald Trump’s election into dispute and delegitimize him prior to his Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration.

Where was McCain when Barack Obama tried to sway the Israeli elections to undermine the reelection of conservative Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu? Obama even had operatives working within Israel. Not a peep from McCain about election insecurity and taxpayer dollars being directed by a sitting U.S. President to try to influence Israeli voters to vote against their Prime Minister. Despite Obama’s actions to intrude on an international election and McCain’s hypocritical inaction, Netanyahu won.


The specter of Joe Arpaio looms large at MCSO

January 5, 2017

Is there actually a “new sheriff” in town?

Many residents of Maricopa County were disappointed by the election night news that Sheriff Joe Arpaio lost his seventh reelection bid.  The popular career law enforcement official had served the people of Maricopa County ably for an unprecedented 6 4-year terms. But it was Arpaio’s commitment to actually enforcing the law that made him the punching bag for the daily newspaper, which never saw an illegal alien it didn’t prefer to Arizona citizens.

Checking out the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) website we got a much-needed chuckle.  The staff of Paul Penzone — the incoming sheriff who received funding from radical globalist, multi-billionaire and open borders proponent George Soros* — has failed in its attempt to do a thorough cleansing of its Home Page.

The first photo is of the Sheriff’s Office building. Second is a “Mission Statement,” and a list of “Values and Expectations From Ourselves and Our Employees” Our favorite comes up next with the depiction of two deputies standing before metal paneled doors, with the inscription instructing “Pull forward to yellow line to activate door.” Emblazoned across the door in bold, all caps, yellow letters are the words SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO —- making it all too obvious Team Penzone isn’t ready for prime time.

* Find out more about Soros at Discover the Networks, A Guide to the Political Left.

Politico reported on George Soros’ behind the scenes efforts to single handedly overhaul the U.S. justice system, including involvement in the elections of sheriffs and district or county attorneys with his infusions of $ millions.

Then remind yourself that this is the man who brought us Paul Penzone.


Petulant Dems play risky, calculated political games

Obama sends American troops to Russian border

The newly sworn-in Republican-majority Congress is in unchartered waters with Donald Trump just two weeks from his Jan. 20 inauguration. They are faced with an unconventional leader whose much used Twitter account has 18.5 million followers. Members of the 115th Congress have to come to terms that Trump is far more popular in their districts than they are. Overall confidence in Congress has fallen sharply as this Gallop polling going back to 1977 illustrates.

But such facts are of little consequence to Senate Democrats still reeling over their massive losses — not only having their hopes of Obama’s third term played out by Hillary Clinton, dashed —- but losing governorships and U. S. House and Senate seats.

Writing for National Review Kevin D. Williamson assesses the scorched earth facts, adding a bit of whimsy to the Dems harsh reality:

There are 25 states in which the state legislatures and governorships are controlled by Republicans, and two states with executive/legislative divides in which there are Republican legislative majorities large enough to override a veto from the Democratic governor. Sixty-eight of the country’s 98 partisan state legislative chambers are Republican-run. There are only four states with Democratic governors and legislatures; it is true that these include one of our most populous states (California), but the majority of Americans live in states in which there are Republican trifectas or veto-proof legislative majorities. Two-thirds of the nation’s governors are Republicans; more than two-thirds of our state legislative houses are under Republican control. Republicans control both houses of Congress and have just won the presidency.

Democrats control the dean of students’ office at Oberlin.

Yet in typical fashion, Democrats react by turning out John McCain’s favorite leftist Chuck Schumer to announce that they will do whatever it takes to scuttle the nominations of at least eight of President-elect Donald Trump’s “rigged Cabinet” selections, as reported by the Washington Post. Their scheme, calculated to cause a fissure in the new administration, is to stretch confirmation votes into March — an unprecedented break with Senate tradition.

So much for Obama’s shallow words pledging a “smooth and efficient” transition for his successor. Obviously, he ditched his promise before the words left his mouth.

President-elect Trump’s popularity has soared in the days since his election, according to a new, not known to favor conservatives, POLITICO/Morning Consult poll of registered voters.

And soon-to-be-out-the-door Barack Obama? Back from his final taxpayer-funded, Hawaiian Christmas/golf vacation, he’s now busying himself deploying American special forces troops to join NATO at the Russian border to rein in “aggressor” Vladimir Putin.


2017: The New Year we’ve been waiting for

December 31, 2016


happy_new_year

Seeing Red AZ sends sincere best wishes for a satisfying, productive, safe and healthy New Year to our valued readers. As Americans, we’ve endured eight long years of the most disastrous presidency imaginable.

From Barack Obama’s failed dealings with Iran, funding the America-hating dictatorship with $33 Billion and making it nuclear capable, while backstabbing Israel at the U.N., to overseeing the growth of ISIS foolishly calling it a “JV Team.” He gave us the lie-based Obamacare and steadfastly refuses to say the words “radical Islamic terrorism.” His commitment is to flooding the United States with illegal aliens and unable to be vetted Middle Eastern “refugees.” His efforts to constrain our Second Amendment rights, to his obsessive use of Executive Orders bypassing Congress and disseminating phony stats on job numbers in our still struggling economy to giving credibility to the Black Lives Matter thugs by inviting them to the White House. The list goes on.

Although Obama twice swore an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, he intentionally failed to do so. His stated intent was to fundamentally transform the most free, prosperous and generous nation on Earth.

In three weeks we have a fresh beginning with Republican President Donald Trump and newly elected Republican House and Senate majorities — an undisputable repudiation of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, his choice to implement his third term.

As we embark upon this New Year, there is no better time to renew our acquaintance with America’s founding documents: The Declaration of Independence, our U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

They have served us well. The least we can do is stay familiar with what they contain, hold our Republican congressional majorities accountable and ensure that our children know what blessings we have been given as a nation.


Kerry, still lying, carries Obama’s water in parting shot to Israel

December 29, 2016

John Kerry foolishly states, “Israel can either be Jewish or Democratic”

After watching the shocked reaction to Secretary of State John Kerry’s betrayal of Israel on the news throughout the day Wednesday, it’s important to take a breather and remember who John Kerry is. The former U.S. Senator and 2004 Democrat nominee is a traitor. Here he is in 1971, spewing lies to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, as he betrayed our brave men and women in uniform fighting in Vietnam in order to advance himself. He joined with the notorious Jane Fonda giving aid and comfort to the Communists killing and maiming Americans.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denounced Kerry after his excessively long (hour and 13 minutes) speech rightly stating Israelis do not need to be lectured about the importance of peace by foreign leaders. Netanyahu was able to get his point across in just nine minutes.

Kerry neglected to mention that the Palestinian Authority pays a salary to those who kill Jews. He didn’t acknowledge that Arabs have been members of the Knesset (legislative body) since Israel’s first elections in 1949. He apparently forgot that Israel, the sole Democracy in the Middle East,  protects the holy sites of Christians, Muslims and Jews. Most importantly for the Israelis, the Palestinians have steadfastly refused to acknowledged Israel’s right to exist. As the Obama administration calls on Israel to make concessions, the same demands are not made on the Palestinians. How does one negotiate with those who have repeatedly stated their aim is Israel’s annihilation?

“Whole countries in the Middle East are collapsing, terror is everywhere and for an entire hour the Secretary of State of the United States talks only about the only democracy in the Middle East, a democracy that is one of the only stable places in the entire Middle East,” Netanyahu said.

“We are now celebrating Christmas,” the Israeli PM said. “Maybe Secretary of State John Kerry didn’t see that Israel is the only place in the Middle East where Christians can celebrate Christmas in security and peace and happiness. Unfortunately, that doesn’t interest the president of the United States,” Netanyhau added.

“If the U.S. administration would have taken the same energies that they put in condemning Israel in stopping the Palestinian terror, maybe they would have helped the peace process more,” Netanyahu said.

The Prime Minister unequivocally stated, “We have it on absolute, incontestable evidence that the United States organized, advanced and brought this resolution to the United Nations Security Council.  We will share that information with the incoming administration.”

Watch as David Keyes, spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also maintains that Israel has “ironclad” proof that the Obama administration was behind the anti-Israel U.N. resolution, which deceptively calls areas such as Jerusalem and the Western Wall “occupied Palestinian territory.”

We decided to add this instructive composite picture showing how Barack Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu spent their 20s. Not much has changed.

Propaganda Ministry now a reality

December 27, 2016

The more we learn about the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 the more suspicious it sounds. A bipartisan bill — Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act — sponsored by U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) sounds more than vaguely Orwellian. This too slick Press Release by Sen. Portman raises more questions than it answers, as it extols outgoing president Barack Obama signing this just prior to embarking on his Hawaiian Christmas vacation. 

ZeroHedge writes:

Fast forward to December 8, when the “Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act” passed in the Senate, quietly inserted inside the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report.

And following Obama’s signing of NDAA on Friday evening, the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act is now law.

And so, with the likes of WaPo having already primed the general public to equate “Russian Propaganda” with “fake news” (despite admitting after the fact their own report was essentially “fake“), while the US media has indoctrinated the public to assume that any information which is not in compliance with the official government narrative, or dares to criticize the establishment, is also “fake news” and thus falls under the “Russian propaganda” umbrella, the scene is now set for the US government to legally crack down on every media outlet that the government deems to be “foreign propaganda.”

Quick as a wink, the US Ministry of Truth is officially born.

In 2013 Seeing Red AZ wrote about Winston Smith, the protagonist in George Orwell’s best seller “1984.” Smith was employed as a clerk in the government’s Ministry of Truth Records Department. His job was to rewrite historical documents to align with the constantly changing current political deception. Newspeak, a reduced language, became the tool to limit free thought and concepts posing a threat to the totalitarian regime.  Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct was classified as “thought crime,” “crime think,” or “doublethink.”

Smith’s work included manipulating facts, revising newspaper articles and doctoring photographs to remove “unpersons,” the term used to describe people who had fallen out of favor with the party. We conservatives are “unpersons” to the MSM liberals. But we still have a voice. We need to continue to use it.

When his book was published in 1949, Orwell wrote, “By 2050 — earlier, probably — all real knowledge of Oldspeak will have disappeared.”  He turned out to be a reliable prophet.

On the senate side, guess who sponsored this bill? None other than John McCain. McCain and Flake both voted for S. 2943
