Why wasn’t Obama blamed for Sandy Hook, other massacres?

August 6, 2019

In the wake of the two horrific mass shootings this past weekend, the drumbeat emanating from the left is as reliable as day following night. Regardless of how they report or discuss the unrelated slaughters of innocents, the blame is always placed at the feet of President Donald Trump.  Barack Obama was in office from Jan. 20, 2009 to Jan. 20, 2017, during which time numerous gun related killings occurred. The inconceivably horrific Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in which 26 people were killed, including 20 six and seven year-old children, occurred two weeks into Obama’s second term.

He was never blamed.

The Arizona Republic continues on it’s politicizing rampage today:

Few things rev up radical leftwing columnist EJ Montini more than elected members of congress offering sympathy in the form of prayers or even as in the case of atheist Democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema tweeting her “heart is with the people of the people of El Paso.” He derides Republicans, Congressman Andy Biggs’ and Sen. Martha McSally’s responses, calling them “lame.” What hater Montini actually wants is total obliteration of the Second Amendment.

Racist Elvia Diaz, the bigoted Linda Valdez replacement, devotes a column to asking, “Why is evil by whites excused as mental illness?”

Syndicated Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen, a Trump-hater extraordinaire whose column appears in today’s Arizona Republic, writes, “Republicans have trapped us in dark age. “  It begins with these incendiary words:

“The Republican Party is the modern-day equivalent of the medieval church. It fights science. It protects ignorance. Above all, it embraces a lunatic reading of the Second Amendment so that any nut can buy a weapon that can kill a maximum number of people in a minimum amount of time.”

The horrific Boston Marathon bombing occurred on April 15, 2013, celebrated as Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts, and occurred under Barack Obama‘s watch. Two Muslim brothers who immigrated with their parents from the former Soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan diligently crafted homemade pressure cooker bombs set to detonate near the finish line. Three people, two young women and a little boy were killed, and hundreds of others were wounded, including 16 who lost limbs, one a 7-year old girl.

There were no calls to ban pressure cookers and no blame hurled at Obama — nor should there have been.

Rational Americans should question the radical left’s double standard.


Americans benefit having businessman Trump in WH

Historic economic expansion ignored by Trump-hating, leftist Arizona Republic

Sensational economic news gets the coverage it deserves in the New York Post —  a publication founded in 1801 by Alexander Hamilton, the first Secretary of the U.S. Treasury.

The Post’s Editorial Board made this acknowledgement Monday:

President Trump has now gotten the US economic expansion to outlast any other in modern history.

As of Monday, growth has rolled along for 121 months straight, starting in June 2009. The now-second-longest expansion ran from March 1991 to March 2001. The new record is also over twice the 58 months of the average expansion since 1980.

All of which means that, even with the weakness of the growth for most of the Obama era, the economy was overdue for a dip when Trump took office. Yet it has instead remained pretty strong, expanding 2.9% in 2018 and at an annual 3.1% for the first quarter of 2019.

Unemployment has fallen steadily, too, to its lowest level in 50 years: In May, the seasonally adjusted rate was 3.4%, down from 5.1% in January 2017. Job openings in April topped the number of unemployed by the widest margin ever, and the tight labor market has fueled wage hikes.

Trump’s deregulation and tax cuts, each a stark reverse of Obama policies, changed the course. As Bankrate senior economist Mark Hamrick told The Post, the president unleashed America’s “animal spirits,” boosting the stock market and consumer confidence. (The S&P 500 and the Dow hit record highs Monday, on news of a truce in the US-China trade war.)

And growth has “lifted all boats,” notes Hamrick. Despite the Democratic line, the “1%” are far from the only ones to gain. Federal Reserve data show that pay hikes these past three years surged faster for the poorest quarter of workers (4.4%) than for the richest (3.2%).

Blue-collar employment is also up big since January 2017: 657,000 new construction jobs and 484,000 more in manufacturing. And joblessness among blacks fell from 7.7% in January 2017 to 6.2% in May.

Nothing lasts forever, but when the economy does finally turn south, it’s well worth remembering which policies delivered the record results.

In an in-tandem report in the same edition, titled,US economy marks longest expansion in American history,” we are doubly treated to the news the Hillary Clinton-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper is loath to report. The NY Post endorsed “rookie” Trump, described as having “electrified the public” in the 2016 Primary, making no endorsement in the General Election.


Trump appointees to SCOTUS having major impact

June 23, 2019

The Daily Caller headlines its post by Kevin Daley, “Kagan Seethes As High Court Conservatives Deliver Property Rights Win.”

It contains less legalese than the SCOTUSblog, but they each cover this significant case and Justice Elena Kagan’s searing rebuke of her conservative colleagues, accusing them of smashing “a hundred-plus years of legal rulings to smithereens.”

The dissent noted Friday’s case was the second time this term that the conservative justices have overturned a controlling precedent, prompting Kagan to ask, forebodingly, which precedent the high court will overrule next.

“Just last month, when the Court overturned another longstanding precedent, Justice [Stephen] Breyer penned a dissent,” Kagan wrote. “He wrote of the dangers of reversing legal course ‘only because five members of a later Court’ decide that an earlier ruling was incorrect. He concluded: ‘Today’s decision can only cause one to wonder which cases the Court will overrule next.’”

“Well, that didn’t take long,” Kagan added. “Now one may wonder yet again.”

Kagan was referencing Breyer’s May dissent in Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt, which asked whether states are immune from lawsuits in the courts of other states. In Hyatt, the five-justice conservative majority overturned a 1979 decision and said the states do indeed have sovereign immunity in the courts of their sister states.

Friday’s property rights dispute arose when a small town in Pennsylvania adopted an ordinance requiring that cemeteries “be kept open and accessible to the general public during daylight hours.” The town told Rose Mary Knick, whose 90-acre property includes a small family cemetery, that she must comply with the rule. Knick sued, saying the ordinance violates the takings clause of the Constitution. The takings clause says the government must compensate property owners for any land seized for public use.

 A 1985 Supreme Court case called Williamson County v. Hamilton Bank required Knick to seek compensation at the state level before going to federal court. Indeed, that ruling required Knick and plaintiffs like her to exhaust all possible state compensation remedies before turning to the federal judiciary.

Writing for the majority, Chief Justice John Roberts said the Williamson County decision was wrong and Knick can go to a federal judge right away.

“Williamson County was not just wrong,” the chief wrote. “Its reasoning was exceptionally ill founded and conflicted with much of our takings jurisprudence.”

The Williamson County ruling, Roberts said elsewhere, imposes “an unjustifiable burden on takings plaintiffs, conflicts with the rest of our takings jurisprudence, and must be overruled. A property owner has an actionable Fifth Amendment takings claim when the government takes his property without paying for it.”

The chief justice noted the Court considers several factors when deciding to overrule a prior decision. In that connection, he cited the 2018 Janus v. AFSCME decision, which said government unions cannot force non-members to pay so-called agency fees. The citation to Janus drew a sharp rebuke from Kagan.

“If that is the way the majority means to proceed — relying on one subversion of stare decisis to support another — we may as well not have principles about precedents at all,” Kagan wrote. “Stare decisis” is a Latin legal term meaning “to stand by things decided.” Janus overturned the 1977 Abood v. Detroit Board of Education ruling.

Friday’s case is No. 17-647, Knick v. Township of Scott.

This was the Aug. 5, 2010 senate roll call vote on Elena Kagen’s confirmation.


AZ border towns become war zones…

June 15, 2019

…as Democrats prefer to impeach our President and leave southern border vulnerable

Tucson’s KVOA News 4 provides the grim statistics of gun violence perpetrated by members of drug cartels in the communities of Naco and Agua Prieta, Sonora, both of which are adjacent to Douglas, Arizona — located in Cochise County — in the southeastern-most corner of the state. View map below.

According to the report, a bloody gun battle in the border town of Agua Prieta claimed the lives of nearly a dozen people this past week. Six people were reportedly killed Friday with an unknown number wounded.

This high level advisory was posted by the Douglas Police Department.

Cochise County Sheriff Mark J. Dannels expresses “serious concern” regarding the ongoing violence, stating the “deputies are working with local, state and federal partners to monitor the situation.”

This is not happening in Afghanistan.  This war is on our southern border. Arizonans need to acknowledge that congressional Democrat inaction on providing funding for a wall is making all Americans vulnerable. Instead of providing security, Dems are instead focused on the politically motivated impeachment of our president, whom they claim engaged in “Russian collusion,” disproved by the Mueller Report, which entered in public record:

“The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

Yet this old saw, not border security, is the Democrats 2020 campaign issue.

Bill Clinton, 49, at the time, was impeached and disbarred for both lying and suborning perjury, but never removed from the Oval Office where he cavorted with 22-year-old White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.  He was elevated to icon status and his scandal-plagued, deceitful wife was endorsed for president in 2016 by the failing, far-left Arizona Republic newspaper.

Montini feigns ire when McSally is called out for disloyalty

June 7, 2019

Earlier this week SRAZ posted, “Memo to McSally: Thrashing Trump is key to failure,” calling out Sen. Martha McSally for her lack of fealty to our Republican President, Donald Trump.  We also reminded her of her loss to far-left Democrat Kyrsten Sinema necessitating her appointment to the seat she currently, albeit precariously, holds. Our post included these words:

Keep up your foolishness, Martha, and not only will you not get the Democrat or registered Independent votes you seek, you will lose the Trump-supporting Republican base you need.

The leftist local newspaper has already begun hammering you. It’s a cinch it will endorse open borders proponent Mr. Gabrielle Giffords, (Mark Kelly). You need us. But we don’t come easy and you can’t take us for granted. It’s time to retool your campaign to garner our support. Otherwise, you’ll lose again and your next appointment will be to the political graveyard.

Apparently our honesty doesn’t sit well with radical columnist E.J. Montini who, at retirement age, is as mentally and physically emaciated as the newspaper for which he still works. He wrote this op-ed column linking to our recent post and excoriating Seeing Red AZ and our readers for distrusting Martha McSally.

Don’t be fooled by this bogus chivalry embracing McSally. It’s all a scam intended to make the newspaper appear thoughtful and less in the tank for far-left, Obama pal, Mr. Giffords/Kelly, who hypocritically opposes Second Amendment rights for everyone but himself. The duplicitous, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic, previously endorsed Sinema over McSally. But hedging its bets in 2016, it gave the green light to a slippery McSally then running for the CD2 House seat, tucking her endorsement in among a load of Democrats including one who had previously been elected as a Republican.

In 2018 the schizophrenic editorial board gave McSally a pass for her comment about building a wall, actually writing, “McSally is just pulling a John McCain,” as it referenced his “build the dang fence campaign ad,” and acknowledged he was lying. Sucker-punching themselves repeatedly they extolled and bashed both of the candidates. But as anticipated, the General Election endorsement went to Sinema.

This time around we fully expect it to go to Soros-connected Mr. Giffords/Kelly. With subscriptions plummeting, endorsements no longer have any currency. If McSally is looking to survive and hang on to the Arizona senate seat it’s crucial she stop playing games. Running as a Republican, she needs to act like one. Support President Trump, and not as a whim or on occasion. 

Conservatives will be watching. We’re sick of being lied to and will sit on our hands rather than take another shiv in the ribs and say, “Thank You,” because we were stabbed by a Republican poser. We are also aware that our principles present a double edged sword, since this is exactly what the fake McSally protectors are hoping for, as they waffle again, but will end up endorsing Mr. Gabby Giffords, aka Mark Kelly.

That’s a prediction you can take to the bank.


Illegal alien impregnates 11-year-old Phoenix girl

May 26, 2019

Just another illegal coming to do what Americans refuse to do*

In these politically correct times, the local newspaper no longer provides the citizenship of arrested and charged criminals. Nevertheless, we’d like to introduce you to a sterling hunk of a guy.  At 5’4’ and weighing in at 130 lbs., there’s no doubt 20-year-old Carlos Jacinto Cobo-Perez is a sought after Romeo. The problem is he’s been romancing a child. Although he admitted to authorities that he knew it was wrong, he couldn’t contain his overwhelming lust for an 11-year-old, who is now pregnant. His bond has been set at $150,000.

Ironically, the girl’s pregnancy was confirmed at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

As to his citizenship…with a bit of resourceful searching we found that in addition to the child sex charge, the pedophile also faces illegal immigration charges, a fact the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) is unwilling to report. During his initial appearance, Cobo-Perez, who is obviously also a jokester, asked the judge if he would sign his Order of Deportation. Count on this Carlos: That won’t be happening.

According to the victim’s mother, the family reported Cobo-Perez to Phoenix police three times prior to the pregnancy — initially when she first saw a hickey on her little girl’s neck. They “didn’t do anything,” she said.

In a related matter, U.S. District Court Judge Haywood S. Gilliam, Jr. of the Northern District of California, on Friday ruled against President Trump. The issue was the completion of a portion of border fence. Gilliam was nominated to the court in 2014 by Barack Obama.

Federal election records reveal Gilliam donated $6,900 to Obama’s campaign for president…$4,600 to Obama for America and $2,300 to the Obama Victory Fund. Barack Obama’s commitment to open borders and amnesty for illegals is well documented.

*The Left’s frequently repeated refrain is, “These are just good people coming to take the jobs Americans refuse to take.”
