Obama’s brazen anti-gun agenda stifles 2nd Amendment

January 5, 2016

Arrogant executive action usurping congressional powers latest in series ranging from climate change to illegal immigration

The imperial Barack Obama, increasingly inclined to govern unilaterally — bypassing congress by use of his regal twins executive orders, and issuances of Presidential Memoranda is at it again.

This time instead of cozying up to communist dictators in Cuba and colluding to expand nuclear capabilities to Islamic madmen in Iran, he’s playing hardball with the U.S. Constitution. In attempting to curtail our Second Amendment freedoms, the lame duck president fully exposes what many Americans have long regarded as his contempt of our liberty.

Obama’s overreaches have resulted in a record number of firearms-related background checks — well over 23-million — last year. Records indicate that more guns were sold in 2015 than in any previous year in American history. In December alone, the FBI conducted 3,314,594 background checks, an increase of more than half a million checks over the previous single-month record set in December 2012.

Simply put, gun and ammo sales are surging because Americans have no confidence the government can protect them and their families and actually fear Obama’s repressive tactics.

Among Obama’s proposed firearm restrictions, curbs on gun purchases would extend to those accused of violence against current or former dating partners or those with temporary restraining orders. A gun-possession ban for Social Security beneficiaries who are believed incapable of handling their own finances is also included.

On Monday, Jan. 4, Barack Obama released this multi-pronged FACT SHEET: New Executive Actions to Reduce Gun Violence. Individual sales between two people will require the seller be a registered, licensed dealer, and submit to a background check any time they sell a gun from their private collection. Assessing mental health has become the purview of the government as doctors are asked to become informants.  

Hypocrisy is rampant. As they propose to diminish our Second Amendment rights, Obama and his family and the Clinton’s are secure with armed secret service protection.  Seeing Red AZ posted “Dem gun hypocrites,” in Dec. 2012, detailing the congressional liberals and double talking,  left-wing celebrities who have concealed carry permits and own firearms — which they support restricting us from accessing.   

The Second Amendment is about much more than simply carrying concealed, hunting, or sport shooting. Our right to keep and bear arms is a bulwark against tyranny.

Dr. Kelli Ward & Prof. David Brat: Upsets can happen

November 28, 2015

Bucking the establishment: The new political reality

U.S. Rep. David Brat was never supposed to be serving in Congress. But he is. In what appeared an unlikely Goliath vs. David race, the conservative college economics professor took on the disconnected and arrogant RINO House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Yet despite Cantor’s 26-to-1 cash advantage, as Politico reports, Brat beat him in a historic GOP primary upset. Brat’s decisive intra-party victory over Cantor made him the first primary challenger to oust a sitting House Majority Leader since the position’s creation in 1899.

Here in Arizona, conservatives are sensing a similar scenario. Dr. Kelli Ward, an emergency room physician and two term state senator, is gaining steam in the 2016 U.S. Senate race.

Ward is the newly announced recipient of this enthusiastic endorsement from the Conservative Campaign Committee (CCC). Breitbart reports the group sent out an email urging PAC supporters to back Ward, a Lake Havasu City conservative, against John McCain.

Breitbart cites the list of grievances against the liberal McCain, and notes Sen. Ward’s first quarter fundraising, an achievement it states “that at least in recent history has only been outdone by Sen. Ted Cruz.

“The momentum is building for Conservative Republican Kelli Ward and with your help we can win this race! The most recent Gravis Marketing Survey shows Kelli Ward leading John McCain among Republican voters by a 9-point margin, 45% – 36%,” reads a portion of the CCC PAC message.

 As a practicing physician, Dr. Ward understands the negative impact of Obamacare on America’s citizens and outlines a plan to repeal the costly and care-rationing monstrosity.  Remember Democrat Nancy Pelosi told us, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it — away from the fog of the controversy.”

As our Friday post we ran “McLosers featured at Mesa campaign rally,“ referencing the extreme measures Team McCain is taking in an effort to fill the house at his upcoming campaign event. They have resorted to announcing the “surprise special guest” — Mitt Romney — two weeks in advance of the actual program.  

Visit the comment section to see two brief but stellar videos posted by SRAZ readers that flawlessly exemplify John McCain. SRAZ has an entire section “McStench” dedicated to Arizona’s pro-amnesty senior senator, who will be 80 by Election Day and is running for another 6-year term. He says he still has more to do.

After more than three decades of his colluding with the left, Arizona ‘s citizens who desire a truthful senator, not a self-proclaimed “maverick,” have already had all they can stomach.


Hillary sticks to liberal PP lie during Iowa interview

September 25, 2015

Des Moines Register interview: Hillary doesn’t deviate from repeating Planned Parenthood lie

National Review knows the truth. Two months ago the publication carried this article by Michelle Malkin which set the record straight on the false claim, even repeated by candidate Barack Obama in 2012, that Planned Parenthood  provides mammograms to “millions” of women. That would be quite a trick given the fact that the nation’s leading abortion provider has neither the equipment nor trained personnel to administer breast cancer screening exams. . 

We don’t provide those services whatsoever,” a staffer at Planned Parenthood of Arizona confessed during this video exposé. 

Malkin notes: Even the liberal Washington Post doled out a three (out of four) Pinocchio rating for the White House’s mammogram lies. “The problem here is that Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms or even possess the necessary equipment to do so,” the paper’s resident fact-checker reported. 

Ladies, open your eyes and hearts. Watch the videos for yourselves. Get the facts. Unmask the lies. The cackling profiteers of Planned Parenthood don’t care about your breasts. They’re too busy putting price tags on the baby hearts, livers, lungs, and limbs swirling around in bloody pie plates, stacked in their “research” labs, subsidized with your tax dollars and sold to the highest bidders. For “preventative care,” of course.

Yet Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, during an interview with the Des Moines Register editorial board, defends the taxpayer funding of these abortion profiteers, saying, “I defend and continue to defend Planned Parenthood.”*

She continues by heaping lies upon lies: “500,000 you know, breast screening exams, a lot of other screening programs that are carried out,” Clinton claimed.

Hillary’s brazen dishonesty continued as she stated, “The Republicans have made it clear in recent years that they are not only opposed to abortion which they have been for quite some time, they’re increasingly opposed to family planning and contraception.”

Pro-life Susan B. Anthony List provides this Fact Sheet for an overview of  Planned Parenthood’s statistics. During fiscal year 2013-2014, Planned Parenthood received more than $528 million in taxpayer funding, or more than $1.4 million per day

The Center for Medical Progress, which released the Planned Parenthood exposés, is to be commended for bringing the macabre truths of this monstrous industry to light via these videos.

Thousands unite to protest Planned Parenthood

August 23, 2015

Nationwide protests against Planned Parenthood were held Saturday in the wake of the release of vile videos showing PP executives coolly haggling over prices in the calculated harvesting and sale of pre-born baby body parts. Pro-Life activists demonstrated at a reported 320 clinics across the country.

In Phoenix hundreds of protestors heard Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, U.S. Reps. Trent Franks and David Schweikert as well as AZ GOP Chairman Robert Graham speak out against the gruesome practices that are funded by tax dollars funneled to the abortion mills of Planned Parenthood by the federal government. Protests took place in several other Valley cities, including Chandler, Tempe and Glendale.

“We call on Congress to end federal funding for Planned Parenthood,” declared Montgomery.

CNS News, citing numbers from Planned Parenthood’s Annual Report, reports PP’s net revenue increased 5% to a total of $1.21 Billion in its organizational fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013. About 45% of that revenue —- $540.6 million —- was provided by taxpayer-funded government ‘health services” grants. Breitbart News’ “Planned Parenthood Annual Report: All About Abortions and Profits,” contains updated 2014 information. 

Although Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider, it cloaks itself as a women’s health care organization.

Seeing Red AZ posted “Planned Parenthood’s gruesome realities in mid-July, revealing the death industry’s deeply embedded roots in Arizona.

The Center for Medical Progress, which released the Planned Parenthood exposés, is to be commended for bringing the macabre truths of this monstrous industry to light via these videos.

It’s past time for the taxpayer-funded money spigot to be turned off.


Aborted organs harvested, sold: PP exec wants Lamborghini

July 22, 2015

Last week we posted “Planned Parenthood’s gruesome realities,” which included a video exposing Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services and Obama administration advisor. She was seen enjoying her lunch and sipping wine while callously discussing the harvesting and sale of second trimester aborted baby body parts. Nucatola brazenly admits to using partial-birth abortions to get “intact parts” which increases the amount per human baby organ —- coolly describing the barbaric process she engages in to procure specific organs for buyers. 

Then just when you thought you’d seen it all, it gets worse. The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has now released a second video. This one shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council President, Dr. Mary Gatter, also casually sipping her beverage, flippantly haggling over payments for “intact fetal specimens” and offering to use a “less crunchy technique” to ensure intact body parts — brains, hearts, lungs and livers  — which are more marketable.

By the conclusion of the meeting, Gatter, a Harvard-educated medical doctor, suggests $100 per “specimen” is not enough and concludes, “Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark, then it’s fine, if it’s still low, then we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini.”

Gatter appears to be aware this violates laws governing tissue collection, but disregards them: “To me, that’s kind of a specious little argument,” she says.

Federal law requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection. (42 U.S. Code § 289g-2)

In 2014, Mary Gatter was honored with a “Women Mean Business” award by Democrat California State Sen. Carol Liu at a swank luncheon at the Pasadena Hilton. The honorees were chosen for having exceptional abilities that have contributed to the economic vitality, diversity, and — ironically — “the quality of life” of the 25th state Senate District.

Obamacare upheld: Justice Scalia redubs it SCOTUScare

June 25, 2015

Supreme Court takes massive swipe at freedom

States’ Rights took a massive hit as Chief Justice John Roberts again voted with his liberal colleagues in support of the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

In the case King v. Burwell, Roberts writing the majority opinion stated, “Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them.”

Roberts, a George W. Bush appointee was the disappointing key vote to uphold the law in 2012. Justice Anthony Kennedy, who dissented in 2012, voted with the leftist majority today.

Justice Antonin Scalia, summarizing his dissent from the bench, correctly asserted, “We should start calling this law SCOTUScare,” using the acronym for the Supreme Court of the United States. Scalia accused his colleagues of twice stepping in to save the law from what he considered worthy challenges.

Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas joined Scalia in the dissent, as they did in 2012. Joining Chief Justice John Roberts were the newly convinced Anthony Kennedy along with Associate Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan.

Leftist lunacy:CA boosts illegals’ healthcare, wages…

June 4, 2015

….and even tackles global warming

The Los Angeles Times reports that California state senators have approved a measure that allows at least 2 million illegal aliens to sign up for special healthcare programs offering the same benefits as Medi-Cal. Most Republicans in the leftward lurching state opposed the bill.

Readers of this blog might have difficulty navigating the report’s terminology since it uses the words “immigrants,” “undocumented,”  and “people in the country without authorization,’ to  describe our invaders —- who have no reason to believe they and the rest of their friends and relatives are not welcome to keep flooding into the United States since they are so hospitably received. For ease in reading, we have thoughtfully provided “Lingo,” our still popular primer.

In pitching Senate Bill 4 to his colleagues, sponsoring Sen. Ricardo Lara said, “We are talking about our friends. We are talking about our neighbors and our families who are denied basic healthcare in the richest state of this union.” Democrat Lara, the son of illegals, failed to note that many cities and municipalities in the state are in financial meltdown or have actually filed for bankruptcy. Such facts are of no consequence. The bill passed 28 – 11.

The California senate has been on a roll. In passing job killing Senate Bill 3,  it also voted to raise the minimum wage to $13 an hour from $9. The argument is that an employee working full-time and earning $9 per hour takes home $18,000 annually before taxes, which is 75% of the federal poverty line for a family of four. But minimum wage jobs were never intended to support a family. They have long provided part-time employment for teens and college students who realize that education is the way out of poverty. Now with business feeling the pinch, and cutbacks occurring, many students will be priced out of the workplace.  

Still the senate liberals were not content.  They also passed Senate Bill  350, intended to combat global warming. Along with the dramatic reduction of petroleum in gasoline it requires, it also mandates state utilities generate at least 50 percent of their electricity from solar, wind and other renewable energy sources by 2030 and triggers a fundamental shift in the types of vehicles Californians drive and the way they power their homes. This report in the San Jose Mercury-News tells the story.

Less than a year ago we posted ‘Have you heard? The USA is “the other Mexico.”  It’s filled with information well worth reviewing. This video clip of California Gov. Jerry Brown greeting Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto is instructive. In response, Pena Nieto brassily called on other states to “evolve” like California so the United States can be more like his home country….. impoverished and crime ridden.

Jerry Brown stands as a monument of the insanity that undergirds liberalism.
