Jeff Flake, the time to reregister as a Democrat is now

August 7, 2017

Dem to Republican switches should encourage Flake to “come out” and feel comfortable in his own skin

An intriguing scramble is taking place in the political arena. Donald Trump’s presidential triumph was based not only on the fact that he expertly outmaneuvered 16 other Republican challengers, but on the colossal missteps of liberals — such as the disastrous round table discussion which relegated Hillary Clinton to the West Virginia back burner in a traditionally blue state.

In 1992, Democrat Bill Clinton carried West Virginia by a solid 13 percentage points. In November 2016 Republican Donald Trump made those numbers look like chump change as he more than tripled that percentage — sweeping the state by 40 points.

Declining coal mining and the resulting job losses clearly illustrate the disconnect (video) elitist Dems have with their own base. Barack Obama promised to bankrupt the industry— an issue on which his heir apparent Hillary Clinton hung her hat. It was a loser and so was she.

The issue so resonates with the coal producing state that West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, a Democrat, appeared at a  rally featuring President Donald Trump, switching parties on Friday to become a Republican. The previous day, he addressed the crowd of Trump supporters estimated at 9,000, telling them, “This man is a good man. He’s got a backbone. He’s got real ideas. He cares about America. He cares about us in West Virginia.”

Here in Arizona the opposite is true. Jeff Flake has shown an increasing liberal proclivity. He said was unable to support Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, and wouldn’t vote for him. He has now come out with a book bashing conservatives, and Sunday appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” taking the GOP to task for not shutting down the “birther” movement, which he claims Donald Trump led.

The more pertinent question is: Why doesn’t the Arizona Republican Party shut down anti-GOP Jeff Flake? He has repeatedly been in opposition to mainstream Republicans and hostile to conservative issues. Yet the AZ GOP is bizarrely gearing up to support Flake in 2018. A recall of the state chairman is gaining steam.

In 2015, Democrat state senator Carlyle Begay, representing the Navajo Nation switched parties to become a Republican, saying  it’s been the Republicans who have worked with him to “improve education, jobs and infrastructure” in the tribal communities where unemployment is as high as 80 percent. Watch his video announcement.

U.S. Rep. Bob Stump represented Arizona in Congress for 26 years — the first five as a Democrat. Elected in 1976, he reregistered as a Republican in 1981 after voting for President Ronald Reagan’s tax cuts. He served as chairman of both the Armed Services Committee and Veterans Affairs Committee, working diligently on behalf of the military and veterans. In his 2003 obituary, the New York Times correctly identified him as a “strong conservative.” No rational person would make that claim about Jeff Flake, but that’s what his pop-up Internet ads are deceptively calling him.

For decades Arizona conservatives have endured Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) misspent time in D.C. as a Democrat enabler, colluding with liberals on myriad issues running the gamut from amnesty for illegals to shamefully casting the deciding vote as he sided with the unified Dems against restructuring the unsustainable Obamacare monstrosity, though rates in Arizona have soared 116%. ASS’s time has come and nearly gone, but Jeff Flake should do the honorable thing and come out as the Democrat he is. The party switch didn’t hurt Congressman Stump. He was reelected for the next 21 years.

In this recentMy Turncolumn on the AZ Republic’s editorial page, Flake is  encouraged to ditch the Republican Party.

It’s an idea whose time has come.


AZ Republic morphs into The Daily McCain

July 27, 2017

As we pointed out on Wednesday, the failing Arizona Republic newspaper has become a paean to the ailing John McCain. This morning’s front page features two articles giving him headline prominence.

“McCain lists priorities for Senate health bill” and “McCain hits Trump over transgender ban.”

McCain, desiring to be current on sexual issues has radically changed his tune from this appearance during his failed presidential bid. “Hitting Trump” has become his primary focus since Donald Trump was elected president, accomplishing what eluded McCain.

Letters to the editor are selected based on two categories: Tributes to McCain  and bashing his 2016 conservative opponent Kelli Ward, a physician and two-term state senator who had the temerity to challenge him. For her effort, she was outspent 10 t0 1 and bizarrely depicted by McCain as aiding ISIS terrorists although the state senate doesn’t address international issues and her physician husband served tours of duty in battle zones. She has now mounted a campaign against Jeff Flake, who loudly proclaimed his refusal to vote for the Republican presidential nominee and did the bidding of Barack Obama, — even promoting Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s lame duck nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court . Flake is so beloved by the left that Hillary Clinton even featured him in a campaign ad.

Letters to the editor of the newspaper run the gamut of suggesting that an Arizona town be renamed to honor McCain, to decimating Kelli Ward.  It’s no secret the Republic is in Flake’s corner as it ignores the facts while buffing him up for the 2018 election.

Don’t be fooled. There’s too much at stake.


Fake news breeds fake polls

July 25, 2017

We’ve been hearing a lot about Fake News  recently. This USA/iMedia Ethics poll illustrates the extent to which relentless negative news manipulation impacts the average American. The all-caps headlines in the Monday edition of USA Today trumpets AMERICANS ARE SPLIT 42% – 42% ON IMPEACHING PRESIDENT.

We’ll focus on just four questions. The first is the one from which the headline numbers are derived. It also provides a means for the leftist Gannett publication to gauge the effectiveness of its skewed content — which is now folded inside the anorexic Arizona Republic to give it heft. By the poll’s own admission, the sampling numbers vary depending on the questions as does the margin of error.

Based on what you’ve read and heard, do you think the Congress should?…Or should not? Impeach Donald Trump and remove him from the presidency, or are you not sure?

How upset would you be if Congress does NOT impeach President Trump and remove him from office?

How upset would you be if Congress DOES impeach President Trump and remove him from the presidency?

The poll concludes with this ominous question:

Whatever your views of Donald Trump, what do you think about his chances of serving out the four years of his current term?

Seeing Red AZ also has a question:

Where was such a poll when Barack Obama was president?

Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution sets the Standards for Impeachment.*

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Seeing Red AZ risks being labeled crass to tell the truth

July 24, 2017

There’s no way to win the etiquette award going after a desperately ill man. But the integrity of Seeing Red AZ requires that we speak the truth and remain faithful to the Constitution and Republican platform.

So it is we expose the Sunday, July 23, 2017 edition of the Arizona Republic and its obsessive recrafting of John McCain. The dramatic headline, “An arena without its fighter,” sits above a  photo of a hallway view of McCain’s Washington D.C. U.S. Senate office with the mahogany door ajar, showing an elegant interior including an exquisite marble fireplace and velvet upholstered chair.  The outer view features an American flag flanking a black and gold gleaming wall plaque identifying the office as that of Senator John McCain.

Above the headline is a deceptive quote from McCain’s protégé Jeff Flake:

“One of the most important roles he has played, obviously, over the past six months is as one who reassured the world that America is still gong to lead. He was a calming, consistent voice when we needed it.”

Think about that message. Jeff Flake, who broadcast his refusal to vote for Republican nominee — now U.S. President Donald Trump, as did John McCain and his family — is actually saying that since Trump’s election the world needed McCain’s assurance that it would still rotate on its axis. The same McCain who hand carried to the FBI director, the phony Russian dossier intended to destroy President Trump within short order after his inauguration. Flake, who remains a close associate of Barack Obama, even promoted Obama’s lame duck Democrat nominee, Merrick Garland for the U.S. Supreme Court, saying it was ‘time to act’ on his nomination.  President Trump actually nominated conservative Judge Neil Gorsuch who now sits on the high court.

Let’s be clear. Sick or well, intemperate McCain, who has spent his career colluding with Democrats, is a rabidly jealous man who has never gotten over his own presidential defeat and begrudges President Trump  his spectacular 2016 victory. Arizona’s two Republicrat senators are determined to bring him down even if it requires a last breath, losing the next election or ultimately destroying the Republican Party.


Pres. Trump: An unconventional man of the people

July 5, 2017

The actual outliers are Flake and McCain

Arizona’s U.S. Senate duo appear to be genetically predisposed to hurling abuse at President Donald Trump. In their latest gig, John McCain and Jeff Flake are expressing feigned “disappointment” and even “embarrassment” over Trump’s retaliatory tweets to TV co-hosts who relentlessly disparage him.

There‘s nothing wrong with defending one‘s self. It’s basic to survival. Parents teach that to their kids.

Trump’s Arizona antagonists are remarkable paragons of temperament and discipline. Lacking basic propriety, they both took the low road in publicly declaring they would not vote for Donald Trump after he won the Republican nomination. He wasn’t couth enough for them. In response to this grand scale defection, the limp-wristed AZ GOP went mute. 

Americans knew they were electing a New York style, aggressive entrepreneur not used to being constrained by the slick superficiality specialized in by career politicians. The fact that he’d never held political office offered its own brand of appeal. 

After eight years of Barack Obama’s unparalleled lies and visible contempt for the taxpaying citizens, unconventional Donald Trump offered a refreshing alternative. When he promised to “Make America Great Again” and “bring back American jobs” the words resonated with Americans weary of the indefensible status quo.

Donald Trump is his own man, not a malleable politician with his finger to the wind. By every measure, he is passionate leader who has shown that his campaign promises were not just words, but plans to be put into action. Since he assumed office Jan. 20, 2017, he has done just that. The large crowds Trump generates are a testament to his continued appeal.

Flake, a committed amnesty proponent, is running for reelection in 2018. Though he continually sends out email pleas for money to “fight the Democrats,” he is sitting atop a pile of dough. By citing “the Democrats” as his challenger, Flake ignores the fact that he has a primary challenger. It’s true Dr. Kelli Ward doesn’t have the lobbyists’ millions that have flowed easily to Flake in the symbiotic quid pro quo world of DC politics. Kelli Ward needs our help.  Flake responds to the lobbyists.  She will respond to us.

In a recent article by McCain’s assigned reporter Dan Nowicki — now doing double duty for Jeff Flake —  it’s all too clear he has a burden  trying to reconfigure arrogant libertarian-leaning, former lobbyist Flake into a Republican with broad-based appeal. Nowicki latches onto the “Democrats are coming!” routine, writing 15 paragraphs before acknowledging that Flake has a Primary challenger. Kelli Ward is not just a challenger, but a highly intelligent, conservative Republican. Wouldn’t that be a rare treat?

Polls show lagging support for Flake. Republican activists who supported GOP nominee Trump feel betrayed by those they worked to put into office aiding the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Hillary took full advantage of Flake’s words, putting him and other Republicrats in this campaign ad. McCain was MIA since in 2016, he was campaigning for a new 6-year-term at age 80.

AZ Republic shovels it for Flake. McCain is a good memory jogger. We also recommend So you think you know Jeff Flake? Think again. Read about his unsavory past ties as a registered foreign agent lobbying on behalf of a Iranian linked uranium mining operation.

AZ US Senate candidate Dr. Kelli Ward supports Pres. Trump

This is Dr. Kelli Ward. These are her principled positions. This is how to donate to her campaign,


Did you miss Carlos Santana?  No, you didn’t

July 1, 2017

Trump hater hypocritically talks “power of peace” while reviling U.S. President

With his Woodstock LSD-addled days supposedly behind him, the now 70-year-old musician Carlos Santana appeared in concert last night at a Valley casino. Ticket prices peaked at $150 a seat.

But it’s not the overpriced tickets for a has-been entertainer that might grab your attention. It’s his words in the local newspaper’s interview that should chill any future interest in this long-in-the-tooth performer. Mexican-born Santana, who became a naturalized citizen in 1965, still doesn’t get the U.S. election system.  Numerous people run for the presidency but ultimately one gets elected, because the message they carried resonated with the majority of voters.

It’s a good bet few who read this site were Obama supporters, but we waited until his time in office was over and went to work, ultimately electing Donald Trump. Unlike his predecessor, he didn’t issue vague promises of “Hope and Change,” bribe gullible voters with free cell phones or repeatedly lie (video montage) about his unsustainable, socialized health care scheme. He spoke instead about making America “great again,” which resonated with weary voters across the country. A business entrepreneur, he has made American private sector job creation a prominent feature of his administration. 

President Trump’s many successes are of no consequence to Carlos Santana, who goes off the deep end in an an unconcealed liberal political rant peppered with lies and led on by ‘music critic’ Ed Masley. Supposedly pitching “the power of peace,” his far leftist views will make you glad you missed the concert. After discussing music, the interview veered off into liberal hate speech:

Q: You’re not especially fond of the new administration in America.

A: Who is? Other than the Ku Klux Klan, I mean, who is? It’s not unity and harmony. It’s fear, fear, fear, fear, fear. It’s built on monetary interests. I have endured as a person LBJ, Nixon, Ronald Reagan, the two Bushes and this guy. It’s the same guy with a different face, you know?

Q: You think?

A: I know so. But one thing that’s happening is America is thirsty for righteousness and integrity. And more and more people are waking up to “You know what? We need to change ourselves and what’s happening.”

Q: How do you stay hopeful in the face of all the fear?

A: Well, thank you for asking that. Every day, when I wake up in the morning, I thank God for life and existence and I especially thank him for Nikola Tesla, because he invented the remote control. I pick it up and as soon as I see Donald Trump, I change the channel or turn it off. So he has absolutely no power over me whatsoever.

I just turn his ass right off. And I listen to birds. I listen to the clouds passing. I don’t give him anything at all from my attention, energy or concentration. I just zap him right out of my house. He has no power over me. And that’s how I stay positive.


Who actually colluded with Russia? Where was the coverage?

June 30, 2017

Obama and McCain got passes for their schemes

Now that it’s been revealed that the relentless CNN contrivances posing as reports regarding President Trump colluding with Russia were all ratings and revenue driven schemes promoted by the network’s president Jeff Zucker, let’s do a quick review of two actual collusions that never merited investigation:

Here is then-President Barack Obama caught on an open mic during a meeting in South Korea, assuring Russia’s then-President Dmitry Medvedev that after his reelection he would have “more “flexibility.”  Medvedev is currently the Prime Minister of Russia. This merited silence from the Obama worshiping press.

Or how about John McCain’s notorious “dossier” that he was all too happy to hand carry to then-FBI director James Comey, supposedly implicating newly elected President Trump in a compromising Russian scandal? The U.K.‘s Daily Mail outs McCain as a virulent enemy of Donald Trump. 

Rebublicrats McCain and Jeff  Flake refused to support the Republican nominee during the 2016 presidential election. Both of Arizona’s U.S. Senators aided liberal Hillary Clinton, who was actually scandal plagued.

As we now know, that “dossier” was, as Van Jones would say, “a real nothing burger.”
