Goldwater Institute: AZ teacher strike, school closures illegal

April 28, 2018

Actions violate students’ right to education

Watch Timothy Sandefur, VP for Litigation at the Goldwater institute:

This is the letter Sandefur sent Friday to school district superintendents throughout the state of Arizona, advising them of their constitutional obligation and consequences of failure to comply.

School closures occurred Thursday and Friday and are threatened to continue on Monday in conjunction with the illegal teacher strike. More than 800,000 students are being deprived of their constitutional right to an education.

Seeing Red AZ hopes the Goldwater Institute moves forward and prevails against the extremist, thuggish tactics of the now emboldened, overwhelmingly leftist teachers unions and their dues paying members.

It is never a wise policy to negotiate with, or capitulate to, terrorists. The #REDSforED thugs fall into that category. Gov. Doug Ducey, more interested in his future political aspirations than doing what’s right, has shown himself to be weak and ineffective by acquiescing to their demands. As they’ve upped the ante from a hefty 20% raise to launching a ballot measure put together by the radical, Chicago-based Center for Economic Progress, totax the rich,’ their socialist agenda is clear.

Know this: It’s not about “the children.”

AZ Special Election Congressional Dist. 8 results & more

April 24, 2018

 We’ve got what you’re looking for —  and the back story

Beginning at 8:00 pm tonight, the Secretary of State’s automatically updating election results can be viewed HERE.

Congressional District 8 has 455,660 registered voters, residing in 143 precincts within Maricopa County. The Republican stronghold district was previously represented by conservative Congressman Trent Franks, first elected in 2002.

Republican Debbie Lesko is running to replace him. A well respected pro-life legislative leader who supports President Donald Trump, she has served in both the Arizona House and Senate and was Senate President Pro-Tempore. Lesko has amassed an impressive list of endorsements.

Hiral Tipirneni is a liberal Democrat who has played fast and loose with the truth in campaign ads showing her in scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck, at a patient’s bedside. In fact, she has not practiced medicine since 2007, after a serious medical malpractice charge was brought against her.

“It’s disingenuous,” said Jack Pandol, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee. “Hiral wants voters to believe she’s something other than who she really is: a former physician sued for malpractice who turned to a cushy job making millions hawking Obamacare instead.” 

Philip Wegmann reporter for The Washington Examiner tweets Hiral Tipirneni’s deceit was outed by her Apple Watch, worn in the campaign ad. He writes, “Apple came out with the original watch in 2015.

Tipirneni hasn’t treated a patient since 2007.”

SRAZ is calling the race for Debbie Lesko by at least 10 points.

And the winnah is…..DEBBIE LESKO

With early ballots counted, Republican former state Senator Debbie Lesko has been declared the winner over Democrat challenger Hiral Tipirneni —-  proving baseless smear campaigns don’t resonate with knowledgeable voters.. Early ballots show Lesko carrying 52.9% of the vote to Tipirneni’s 47.1%.


Dr. Kelli Ward holds decisive lead in GOP senate poll

April 19, 2018

There’s good news being reported by ABC Channel 15. According to a poll the station jointly conducted with OHPI last week, the Arizona Senate race is shaking out for a conservative win.

After a single term of Republicrat Jeff Flake, who opted out of running for reelection due to an abysmal 18 percent approval rating, Arizona conservatives see a light at the end of the anti-Trump tunnel. Both current senators, McCain and Flake stated that neither they nor their families would support Donald Trump — who emerged victorious over 16 other GOP presidential primary candidates. Flake mounted an ongoing tirade against President Trump on liberal media and denounced him in the senate chamber.

The Republican senatorial field is not lacking candidates, but only one, Kelli Ward, a physician, principled conservative and former two-term state senator, presents a real choice. Martha McSally, known on this site as Sally McCain, is more of the same.

 Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, has been a conservative star, but will be 86 by Election Day, making his run for a six-year term disconcerting even to his diehard supporters.

Arizonans have endured decades of liberals masquerading as Republicans. deceiving voters as they campaign, only to reveal their true blue personas once elected. This is amnesty supporting John McCain at his lying pinnacle. Jeff Flake also cloaked himself as a conservative when in campaign mode, much to the dismay of the liberal newspaper which needn’t have worried about his campaign related duplicity.  Retired Sen. Jon Kyl pulled the same charade as he ran for his final senate term.

The poll results announced on the news report give Dr. Kelli Ward the decisive edge with 36%. Martha McSally fell far short with 27% and popular Joe Arpaio, now unfortunately taking the role of spoiler, held only 22%.

The winner of the GOP primary will face liberal Democrat Krysten Sinema a one-term CD 9 U.S. House member, who has deceptively softened her foul-mouthed image, but is still the former Green Party candidate who celebrated May Day with personal greetings in the People’s World Weekly Communist newspaper, compared women who stay home raising their families to leeches, defamed the military — which she now esteems — and revels in declaring herself the first openly bisexual, atheistic member of congress. To underscore the point, she refused to take her oath of office on a Bible.

Other good news centers on the polling numbers of President Trump. Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential polling shows him with a 50% approval rating, higher than Barack Obama’s 47% approval on the same date eight years ago –– in the second year of his presidency. Trump is winning with the American people,  despite continual leftwing media assaults.


3 sentences describe major reason Pres. Trump won

Dana Loesch: “NRA biggest defender of free speech” & crucial UPDATE

March 27, 2018

MUST READ UPDATE: 97-year-old former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens advocates repealing the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

With Second Amendment restrictionists maligning our constitutional rights and bellowing that guns are the culprits in mass shootings perpetrated by evil or mentality ill assassins, we bring you a voice of sanity.

“The NRA has been the biggest defender of free speech. I find it interesting that those individuals who simultaneously preach about free speech want to silence the speech of the millions of people who make up NRA membership.” –Dana Loesch

The NRA couldn’t have a more impassioned, articulate than Dana Loesch. Listening to her is always enlightening.

This linked video is when most of us first met Dana Loesch, in her national NRA role. It was an unforgettable introduction.

A few fast facts you might not have known:

Before seeing the light, Dana Loesch was once a registered Democrat, who worked on Bill Clinton’s second-term campaign. She and her music producer husband Chris Loesch, a Republican who influenced her politically and now manages her busy schedule, jointly home-school their two sons. An award winning investigative reporter, she has co-founded a tea party, worked as a radio talk show host and was appointed editor-in-chief for Big Journalism, part of the Breitbart network of conservative media. They are devout Christians. Although she endorsed Ted Cruz in the 2016 presidential primary, after President Trump’s election, she became a self described “passionate defender” of his presidency.

NRA Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer, Wayne LaPierre, explains the NRA’s position on raising the age (video) for purchasers of firearms.

It was bound to happen. In a New York Times op-ed published today, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, a well concealed RINO appointed to the high court by Pres. Gerald Ford, urges the repeal of the Second Amendment. Born into privilege in 1920, Stevens was previously appointed to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals by Pres. Richard Nixon.

His bizarre lack of regard for our Constitution could be laid off to the fact that Stevens is 97-years-old. We can reasonably assume a surrogate wrote this commentary. Regardless of its origins, it is a disgraceful effort to undermine our nation‘s foundational underpinnings.

Stevens was 90 years of age when he retired. Rather than repealing the Second Amendment, Americans should revisit the wisdom of lifetime appointments for Supreme Court Justices. Call your members of congress.

This is what we’re up against.  Be vigilant, anJOIN the NRA today. We have few other protectors of our rights.

Arizona Republic praises McSally for border deceit

March 23, 2018

 Enthusiastically compares her lies to those of McCain and Flake

As difficult as it is to believe, the liberal Arizona Republic newspaper editorially accuses senate candidate Martha McSally ofpulling a McCainon the border, while excusing John McCain’s and Jeff Flake‘s flagrant pre-election border deceit by saying, “every politician at some point makes an accommodation to the political winds. And in primary season in Arizona, the battles are fought in the lowlands of the extreme right.”

Take a moment to ruminate on those venomous words aimed at conservative Arizonans and shot at point blank range.

The Republic’s accusation is actually an accolade. No wonder the squish Republicrat, who is sure to win the newspaper’s GOP primary endorsement, is alternately known as Sally McCain. Rest assured they’ll drop her like a hot rock in the General Election when radical Kyrsten Sinema will secure the newspaper’s endorsement.

“In the past,” the editorial board glibly acknowledges, “that has meant moderates like John McCain and Jeff Flake have masqueraded as hardliners on immigration. Even Democrats knew when to go into full border hawk. Former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords could pound the drums of border protection with the best of them.”

“Now it’s Martha McSally’s turn,” according to the leftist, lie-condoning editorial board.

Seeing Red AZ supports conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for the U.S. Senate. She actually means what she says when she speaks in favor of securing the border.  Meet her as she appears with, and is endorsed by, Dr. Sebastian Gorka:
