Desperate dems seek to upend SCOTUS as diversion from their own failures

May 10, 2022

Biden’s handlers downplay, divert from economic crisis as midterm elections loom

The ginned up mobs threatening U.S. Supreme Court justices at their private residences and their venerated workplace are not serendipitous. Chief Justice John Roberts issued this press release explaining the driving force behind the unprecedented harassment. It is the result of a leaked draft document written by Justice Samuel Alito — his own opinion on Roe v. Wade, which has no independent legal standing — has been intentionally blown out of proportion to divert attention from the myriad actual failures of the Biden administration.

Established by the U.S. Constitution, the Supreme Court was created with the passage of the Judiciary Act of 1789. The respected institution is the foundation of our democracy.

Suddenly, it has become a political football being kicked around by democrats desperate to divert attention from the worst economy in decades. Americans are besieged by shortages of basics such as food, housing, gas, and even vanishing baby formula — accompanying continually soaring prices, leaving Americans stunned, irate and alarmed.

Democrats facing the midterm elections are rightfully fearful of sweeping losses as the economy and now the stock market is in an epic fail. On Monday, gold dropped $27. This morning Barron’s Financial News runs this lethal headline, “The S&P 500 Has Gotten Crushed. It Could Drop Another 14%.”

According to the deep thinkers in the democrat party, the best way to skirt the problems that plague them is to employ the classic magic sleight of hand trickery of “Look here, not there,” deflection as they attempt to blame all of their failures on Republicans. The desperate scheme is not gaining traction among Americans who are unable to escape the daily reality of Bidenflation. The facts of President Trump’s Unprecedented Economic Boom stand in stark contrast.

Biden’s open border madness extends to Russian illegals

April 5, 2022

Catch and Release policy imperils Americans

Today we take the unusual step of making a congressional letter to an inept Biden administration official our post. Arizona’s CD-5 Congressman Andy Biggs sent this letter signed by him and 19 of his House colleagues to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, posing six pertinent questions about Russian nationals illegally entering the United States and being released into the interior of our country by DHS. It was sent just days ago on April 1, 2022, but don’t mistake this for an April Fool’s Day prank. The topic is deadly serious. Arizona is fortunate to have this America First patriot representing us and asking the serious questions that the radical, open border leftists incomprehensibly want to conceal.

Alejandro Mayorkas, a retread from the Clinton and Obama administrations, was endorsed for his current position by none other than former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, who resigned to join the Obama administration as head of Homeland [IN]Security. She was noted for her comment, “You show me a 50-foot wall and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder at the border. That’s the way the border works.”

Mayorkas, an illegal alien himself, is described as fleeing to America from Marxist Castro’s Cuba with his parents and sister as a child. Their story begins to fray when it turns out that the desperate illegals left Florida for California, where they moved to posh Beverly Hills. It’s a odd take on the tear-jerking rags to riches theme we frequently hear. Mayorkas then went to Berkeley for a socialist indoctrination, making a full circle turnaround, ultimately receiving a law degree from Loyola University.

Bigg’s letter is definitely worth your time.

Radical author claims “trash” US Constitution must be replaced

March 6, 2022

Haitian immigrant benefiting from First Amendment’s freedom of speech opines, “Wealthy slavers and racist misogynists” founded USA

Americans rightly esteem our U.S. Constitution, which sets us apart from other forms of government. The document which was ratified June 21, 1789, has been amended 27 times. Our Founders were brilliant patriots with an eye to the future, who labored at putting together a document that would grow with the then-young country. America is known as a nation of laws — a founding principle. It remains the core of what defines who we are as Americans.

John Hanson, writing for the Political Insider, introduces us to Constitution hater and leftist journalist Elie Mystal, who recently authored a book titled, “Allow Me to Retort: A Black Guy’s Guide to the Constitution.”  Mystal claims the Constitution should be replaced with something “more inclusive.”

Mystal calls the Constitution “trash” that was written by wealthy slavers and racist misogynists. He goes on to denigrate our laws saying they have since “been mostly interpreted by wealthy white legislators to take away the rights of minorities, women and the LGBTQ community.”

If this raging Haitian-born opportunist followed his roots back to his African homeland, he wouldn’t be a Harvard-educated author, with a law degree, making televised guest appearances to push a book or vilify the Constitution-based nation that has provided him limitless opportunities.

Filibuster remains intact, thanks to dem Sens. Sinema, Manchin

January 21, 2022

Voter suppression claims were a hoax

Two democrat U.S. Senators, Joe Manchin (WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ), on Wednesday evening joined unified Republicans to save our nation. We have not previously been fans of Arizona’s senior senator, Kyrsten Sinema, but owe her a debt of gratitude for this courageous action in opposition to her own party. The vote was 52 – 48 to maintain the 60 vote threshold.(Video of the final vote.)

The dems falsely framed this issue as necessary to ensure the right to vote. American citizens have the right to vote. The claim is bogus. Felons who have had their rights restored also qualify.

Although The New York Post recently editorialized, “The only reason to kill the filibuster: to empower Democrats,” the radically left, hemorrhaging subscriptions, Arizona Republic has gone apoplectic over Sen. Sinema’s resistance to eliminating the filibuster, prominently featuring a front page photo of her wearing a message-sending red dress and quoting — above the fold — the whining spokesman of the Primary Sinema PAC, established to remove her. “She just proved exactly what we’ve been saying: She prioritizes her own self-image as a ‘maverick’ trying to suck up to Republicans over delivering for her constituents.”

In a speech before the vote Manchin warned, “Allowing one party to exert complete control in the Senate with only a simple majority will only pour fuel on the fire of political whiplash and dysfunction that is tearing this nation apart…It’s time that we do the hard work to forge difficult compromises that can stand the test of time.”

TJ Helmstetter, a onetime associate communications director for the Democratic National Committee, is a guy who uses the incendiary word “Nazi” to describe Republicans. That’s the latest grotesque distortion used by the newspaper, which recently featured editorialist Elvia Diaz comparing illegal aliens breaching our sovereign border to Jews fleeing the Holocaust, resettling in Israel.

On January 15, 2022, Seeing Red AZ posted, “Freedom to Cheat Act: Left craves total fed takeover of elections.” Since then, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema has left Mark Kelly behind in the dust.

For more factual background, The Heritage Foundation explains “The Role of the Filibuster.”

Remembering the wisdom of Judge Bork as we greet 2022

January 1, 2022

As 2003 was coming to an end, Judge Robert Bork, a distinguished conservative scholar and a former judge on the Federal Appeals Court for the D.C. Circuit, wrote, “Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline.” The instant best-seller provided a prophetic view of a failing culture, a nation in such serious moral trouble that its very foundation is crumbling — a nation that metaphorically slouches not towards the ancient religious city Bethlehem but towards decadent Gomorrah.

Three and a-half decades ago, with clarity and foresight, Judge Bork referred to the crisis we now face, based in the rise of political leftism, that intentionally obliterates the definitions of “equality and equity.” The terms are clarified in “The Inequality of ‘Equity,“ by Ben Shapiro, which we urge you to read.

“Slouching Towards Gomorrah” provided a devastatingly insightful exposé of a country in crisis at the end of the millennium, when the rise of modern liberalism, which stresses the dual forces of radical egalitarianism (the equality of outcomes rather than opportunities) and advances radical individualism (the drastic reduction of limits to personal gratification). Advancement of these notions, particularly via indoctrinating educrats on college campuses has undermined our culture, our intellect, and our morality with special attention to matters of sex and censorship, race relations, and the relentless attempts to erode American moral values on the altar of leftism.

“Equity” and “Equality” may seem to be the same, but they have very different political and ethical meanings. Equity — equality of result — is impossible without unfairly taking from some and giving to others, facilitated by removing earned accreditation from those who have earned merit without their consent. Judge Bork foresaw this disturbing socialist trend years ago, and for that he was sacrificed at the altar of political correctness, after President Ronald Reagan nominated him for the U.S. Supreme Court. On October 23, 1987, the senate, stunningly led by none other than Sen. Joe Biden, rejected Bork’s nomination to the Supreme Court by a vote of 58-42.

Judge Bork, who died in 2012 was a unique, articulate figure in the annals of the U.S. Judiciary, undeservedly becoming a punching bag for the radical left and having his name morph into a slag term in the Merriam-Webster and Oxford English Dictionaries. The verb “bork” is now identified as a means to “defame or methodically vilify, and use the mass media with the aim of preventing an appointment to public office; to obstruct or thwart (a person) in this way.”

We wish all the best in the New Year to our readers.

Biden, Fauci vax mandates invading every aspect of our lives

December 27, 2021

The Joe and Tony show shifts into high gear

This oddly undated directive from the Biden administration details the implementation of  “a six-pronged, comprehensive national strategy that employs the same science-based approach that was used to successfully combat previous variants of COVID-19 earlier this year.” It mentions the Delta variant, but omits Omicron, first identified in South Africa on Nov. 24, providing some idea of a timeline. While Biden lacks the authority to order everyone to comply, requiring federal workers and contractors doing business with the government to get immunized is within his purview. Public schools, through their leftist teacher’s unions,* have ordered shutdowns, and many parents have knuckled under to the pressure to mask and even vaccinate young children who are not carriers. Dr. Anthony Fauci has stated that double masking “makes common sense,” though Biden rarely wears a single one. It was not within a vacuum travel restrictions have increased and U.S. airlines cancelled 1,900 flights over Christmas weekend — including over 900 flights on Saturday — disrupting long-planned family holiday gatherings.

Tony Fauci didn’t stop there. He went even further, saying the United States should consider imposing a vaccination mandate for all domestic air travel. “When you make vaccination a requirement, that’s another incentive to get more people vaccinated,” he stated.  “I think that’s something that seriously should be considered.”

Next the little tyrant, who hasn’t seen a patient since he completed his residency in 1968 and proceeded directly to the National Institutes of Health, will call for mandatory quarantines, further destabilizing our lives and the shaky economy.

Biden’s operatives have ordered the Department of Health and Human Services to require hospitals and nursing homes, dependent on Medicaid and Medicare, and other entities that receive federal money, to require their employees be vaccination. Family members have been unable to be with seriously ill and dying loved ones due to the sweeping directives.

On Nov. 22, 2021, the Arizona Attorney General‘s Office** expanded this lawsuit to stop the Biden administration’s unconstitutional COVID-19 vaccine mandates for federal contractors and employees. The amended complaint adds the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association (PLEA) and the United Phoenix Firefighters Association Local 493 (UPFA) as co-plaintiffs.

Reacquaint yourself with our March 14, 2021 post, “Biden releases infected illegals into U.S., Dr. Fauci stays mum,” which includes a photo of Fauci and his friends, including the titans of globalism, and Socialist billionaire George Soros along with Bill Gates’ father who was the head of Planned Parenthood and radical left media honchos who framed the news to fit their agenda.

Now the sports world is feeling the impact of the tyrannical mandates as reported by Fox News in this headlined article, “Buffalo Bills’ Cole Beasley fined nearly $100,000 for breaking COVID rules.”

President Abraham Lincoln’s closing words from the Gettysburg Address, delivered in 1863, have been memorized by school children for generations, standing as a reminder not only of the cost of freedom, but also what it represents:

 “We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

The word, “mandates,” never passed Lincoln’s lips.

Shock poll: 41% of dem voters say cheating was likely in 2020 presidential election

December 24, 2021

According to a newly released Rasmussen Reports survey, (Dec. 21-22, 2021) an overwhelming majority of American voters believe Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s multimillion-dollar effort to influence the 2020 presidential election was a bad thing for democracy, and most still think cheating influenced the election outcome.

Imagine that!

The survey questions can be read here. Number 4 pointedly asks, “How likely is it that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election?” 79% of Republicans, 58% of unaffiliated voters, and a revealing 41% of democrats believe it is somewhat likely that cheating affected the 2020 election.

An earlier Rasmussen survey (Dec. 20, 2021) revealed a slim 30% of likely U.S. voters think the country is heading in the right direction — clearly illustrating buyer’s remorse on the part of democrats.

REMINDER TO OUR READERS: In accordance with our 2020 established policy, the word “democrat” or its derivatives will no longer be capitalized on this site. The exception is when the word is capitalized in quotes or beginning a sentence.

MLK’s family visit Phx to “fight for voting rights” which aren’t denied

December 21, 2021

“Voter suppression” are the latest in a string of false buzz words favored by the left

The local newspaper is on thin ice, losing subscribers at a record pace, but that doesn’t deter it from sensationalizing its news coverage. The front page report on Martin Luther King’s family rallying in Phoenix on his Jan. 15, birthday is a case in point. Topping the article is this absurd header, “Advocates will give voice to fight for voting rights.”

It’s an insulting farce to promote the fallacy that voting rights are restricted based on ethnicity, but the Arizona Republic has no shame. Registering to vote can be done online.

The Fifteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution passed after the Civil War ended in 1865, prohibits federal and state governments from denying a citizen the right to vote based on that citizen’s race, color, or previous condition of servitude. It was ratified on February 3, 1870.

American women didn’t have the right to vote until passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1919, which was ratified in 1920, 50 years after black men were constitutionally granted voting rights. That inconvenient fact doesn’t play into the dramatization.

Voter intimidation, particularly in the south, prompted Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower to convince Congress to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1957, (Read the revealing last sentence of the first paragraph) which allowed for federal prosecution for anyone preventing others from voting.

And, of course, it was President Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican President, who signed the Emancipation Proclamation, declaring that all persons held as slaves would be free. This followed the devastatingly deadly Civil War fought during his presidency to end slavery.

Republican President Ulysses S. Grant was the Commanding General during the Civil War, leading the Union Army to victory against the Confederacy. “Reasons for Being a Republican,” was a speech he gave explaining his political ideology.

In 1983 Republican President Ronald Reagan signed legislation creating Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a national holiday.

The voting rights the King family claims to be “fighting for” disregard the fact that Barack Obama was twice elected U.S. President, VP Kamala Harris is next in line of presidential succession, and countess blacks have been elected to public office on every city, county and state level including the fifty state legislatures and hold judgeships across the nation.

This list displays the black members of the U.S. House and Senate, from 1869 to the present. Their political affiliation is listed alongside each elected official. Every elected member from 1869 through 1935, were Republicans. Unlike too many Americans today, they were historically astute and knew which party acted on their behalf and which gave lip service. The first black to serve in Congress was Republican Hiram Rhodes Revels of Mississippi who began his service in the U.S. Senate when he was sworn in on February 25, 1870, despite efforts of democrats to block him. Don’t hold your breath waiting for the King family to mention him or those who followed in his footsteps.

Thomas Sowell’s Thanksgiving wisdom

November 25, 2021

“Thanksgiving may be our most old-fashioned holiday. Gratitude itself seems out of date at a time when so many people feel ‘entitled’ to whatever they get — and indignant that they didn’t get more.”
