AZ Republic’s new low: Slurs popular GOP SofS candidate Mark Finchem

September 17, 2022

The old adage, ‘Never argue with a man who buys ink by the barrel’ was once considered a truism. Today we know that print newspapers are a dying breed. The far-left Arizona Republic definitely exemplifies that fact.  Its antics are increasingly desperate as we near the November General Election.

Its latest effort to bring down a popular Republican candidate falls into the category of reprehensible. Mark Finchem, a former four-term state legislator with credentials galore is currently running for Secretary of State. This is an important post, since the Arizona Constitution does not does provide for a Lieutenant Governor and the line of succession passes through this office.  As these numbers attest, Finchem ran away with the Primary vote, trouncing all competitors by wide margins. This Meet the Candidate page is from the conservative Center for Arizona Policy Voter Guide.

Endorsed by former President Donald Trump, Finchem is regarded as worthy of degradation by the radically leftist newspaper, which took a leap into madness by describing Finchem as an “anti-Semite” after labeling him as an “election denier” didn’t work. It is a preposterous allegation based on Finchem calling out far-leftist, amoral George Soros. Soros has Jewish ancestry but isn’t aligned with the faith. He is an anti-religion Socialist who admitted (in this brief video) turning in his Jewish neighbors to the Nazis as a teenager, “with no sense of guilt.”

The newspaper, which once had a voice in elections, was forced to end its decades-long endorsement policy when subscriptions plummeted after it endorsed Hillary Clinton for U.S. President. It whiningly claimed it received “death threats,” following that absurd action. How a newspaper can be killed — other than by its own hand — is a preposterous assertion. It refuses to chastise democrat Fraidy Katie Hobbs, running for governor against Trump-endorsed Kari Lake. Hobbs is the only statewide democrat candidate who refused to debate their Republican opponent. With too many skeletons in her closet, including overt bigotry that resulted in massive fines, Hobbs even refused to debate her democrat primary election opponent.

The failing Arizona Republic’s last ditch effort at credibility is to denigrate conservatives such as Mark Finchem — a man of integrity — making him a target for defamation. Don’t be conned. His democrat challenger Adrian Fontes is a vile man lacking decency and manners as this 2017 news report shockingly reveals.

We did find a remedy to the local newspaper’s multi-pronged libelous deceit promulgated in lockstep by reporters and columnists. The Fort Bend Independent newspaper headlined this crucial report detailing a guilty verdict against the West Fort Bend Star and its reporter, “Star loses libel lawsuit, faces a million dollar penalty and damages.”


Breitbart reveals Maricopa County poll worker disparities, as dems outnumber Republicans

September 15, 2022

GOP underrepresented while Republicrat Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer sits on his thumb

As we approach the November General Election, there are valid concerns detailed in this Breitbart News report titled, “Maricopa County Under Fire for Appointing More Democrat than Republican Poll Workers.” Be assured you won’t find this information in the pages of the failing, Hillary-endorsing, Arizona Republic newspaper, whose circulation has continued to plummet — losing 21,249 daily subscribers between 2018 and 2021 as reported by Statista.

The information contained in Breitbart’s revealing report is crucial for voters who rely on the concept of election integrity. Many of us remember when Helen Purcell was the Maricopa County Recorder, reliably overseeing state and federal as well as city, town and district elections for nearly three decades. Maricopa is the largest of Arizona’s fifteen counties and the fourth largest county in the nation — even larger than six states. Election integrity was never in question.

Today, we have every right to be wary. Read the Breitbart report to get a full picture of the underlying shenanigans that give us reasons for concern. This is hard-core politics at its grittiest. The AZ GOP must remain vigilant. Our current county recorder, Stephen Richer, a former democrat masquerading as a Republican, barely squeaked into office by 50.1 to 49.8%. Last year, anti-Trump Richer, in a revealing turn-of-phrase, announced he was creating PAC to back “pro-democracy” Republicans — otherwise known as RINOs — Republicans In Name Only. The donor list can be viewed here.

The PAC will run independent expenditure campaigns infusing cash into RINO primaries for legislative and county races of candidates who “acknowledge the validity of the 2020 election and condemn the events of January 6, 2021 as a terrible result of the lies told about the November election,” according to a press statement announcing the committee’s formation.

The Arizona Independent News Network headlines its comprehensive report, “Richer’s PAC Finance Report Renews Questions About Conflict And Funding.” We were fooled once. Repeating that mistake will have dire consequences. Acquainting yourself with the facts is worth the short time it takes to read the two news reports. 


Fulfilling Biden admin’s agenda: Census distortions benefit democrats

August 29, 2022

The U.S. Census takes place every ten years. The fundamental reason for the headcount, according to the U.S.  Census Bureau’s website is to comply with “The Constitution of the United States, Article I, Section 2, which states. “Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers…”

“Apportionment is the process of dividing the 435 memberships, or seats, in the U.S. House of Representatives among the 50 states, based on the state population counts that result from each decennial census. These results determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives for the next 10 years.”

Obviously it is critically important. With democrats in control, vigilance is crucial — which is why we direct our readers to  “Census Bureau Admits Overcounting 7 Blue States, Just 1 Red State,” written by Hans von Spakovsky, whose impressive bio follows his photo.

The Census Bureau, mandated by the U.S. Constitution, is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Its qualified director Robert L. Santos, is irrelevantly identified as being the first Hispanic to head the agency. He was appointed by Joe Biden, who puts a premium on genetic factors outside of our control.

Even the FBI, whose stated mission is to “Protect the American people and uphold the Constitution of the United States,” has shamefully fallen into the Diversity and Inclusion contrivance.


A method to the Mar-a-Lago break-in madness & UPDATE

August 28, 2022

Contrived raid of Trump’s home was not conducted in a vacuum

U.S. District Judge Aileen Mercedes Cannon, nominated by President Trump to the Southern District of Florida in 2020, has announced her “preliminary intent” to appoint a special master to review documents taken by the FBI during an unauthorized Aug. 8, raid of President Trump’s Florida home. Former First Lady Melania Trump’s personal closet was also ransacked. The family was not in residence at the time of the forced entry.

Trump and his legal team have filed a motion seeking an independent review of the records seized by the FBI during its invasion of Mar-a-Lago, saying the decision to search his private residence just months before the 2022 midterm elections “involved political calculations aimed at diminishing the leading voice in the Republican Party, President Trump.”

That’s known as an undeniable truism.

On Saturday afternoon Judge Cannon wrote in a filing that the decision was made upon the review of Trump’s submissions and “the exceptional circumstances presented,” adding, “Pursuant to Rule 53(b) (1) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Court’s inherent authority, and without prejudice to the parties’ objections, the Court hereby provides notice of its preliminary intent to appoint a special master in this case.”

A hearing is set for Sept.1, at 1:00 p.m. in West Palm Beach, Florida. Judge Cannon also ordered the Justice Department to file a response by Aug. 30, and provide, “under seal,” a “more detailed Receipt for Property specifying all property seized pursuant to the search warrant executed on August 8, 2022.”

The OBiden administration authorized the tyrannical break-in in response to what it claimed to be “a violation of federal laws: 18 USC 793 — gathering, transmitting or losing defense information; 18 USC 2071 — concealment, removal or mutilation; and 18 USC 1519 — destruction, alteration or falsification of records in federal investigations.” U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland must be working overtime to come up with these contrivances to politically hobble former President Trump, since the allegation of “gathering, transmitting or losing defense information” fall under the Espionage Act.

The fact that President Trump and his legal experts dispute the classification, stating they believe the information and records have been declassified, is inconsequential. 

For pertinent background concerning this effort to permanently marginalize former President Trump, read, “What Released Affidavit Reveals About FBI’s Mar-a-Lago Raid,” at The Heritage Foundation’s Daily Signal. Zack Smith and John G. Malcolm’s legal credentials add heft to this excellent report.

A special “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter”

August 27, 2022

Seeing Red AZ has occasionally used the title, “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter,” bringing our readers such nationally acclaimed conservative luminaries as historian Victor Davis Hanson, constitutional law expert Mark Levin or previously, Professors Thomas Sowell (ret. 2016) and Walter Williams (d. 2020).

Today we feature former Arizona Congressman J.D. Hayworth, now a broadcaster and columnist who knows more than a thing or two about Arizona politics. His most recent column, ‘Sinematic’ moment for Arizona’s senior senator, published in the Mesa Tribune is both entertaining and informative.

Take time to read it. You’ll be glad you did.


Border Security: Which deceitful Mark Kelly do we believe?

August 22, 2022

Vote Trump-endorsed Blake Masters for AZ Senate

The NRSC (National Republican Senatorial Committee) is the only national organization solely devoted to strengthening the Republican Senate majority and electing Republicans to the U.S. Senate. It provides invaluable support and assistance to current and prospective Republican U.S. Senate candidates in the areas of budget planning, election law compliance, fundraising, and communications tools, including messaging, research and strategy. Elections to the U.S. Senate will be held on November 8, 2022, and 34 of the 100 6-year seats are up for regular election.

NRSC recently launched two ads exposing deceptive Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly. This one is titled, AZ: Soft. Another, Suave, is a Spanish language video. Ballotpedia has a hoverable” interactive map loaded with pertinent information.

When Joe Biden issued this “Proclamation on the Termination Of Emergency With Respect To The Southern Border Of The United States And Redirection Of Funds Diverted To Border Wall Construction,“ in 2021, Mark Kelly was silent. Kelly continues to ignore the ever-worsening border crisis.

The Biden administration’s open borders and amnesty agenda makes our country and the communities near our southern border less safe. Sen. Mark Kelly has consistently voted in Washington to fuel the border crisis, turning Arizona into a sanctuary state. Waiting for Kelly to begin fighting to protect Arizona families is a fool’s errand.  Deceitful Kelly is exposed as conveniently forgetting that he voted along with ALL of his Senate democrat colleagues against an amendment intended to keep Title 42 in place.

Earlier this year, the Arizona Sheriff’s Association sent this letter to Arizona Sens. Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema, imploring them to “take action and not wait another day to address the border crisis in our home state.” The Sheriffs declared it was “negligent to let another day, week, month, or year pass without Arizona’s U.S. Senators leading on a solution to solve the revolving door border policy that negatively affects our state.”

The dedicated law enforcement officials obviously forgot who they were writing to.

Check out Blake Master’s website.  He vows to secure the border and end illegal immigration; stop the Biden crime wave, and focus on an America First: Strong and Smart National Defense. What a welcome change from radical Soros‘ Act Blue-supported Kelly (for verification, scroll down to the end of this solicitation) who has longstanding business ties with Communist China. Though a gun owner himself, Kelly is also a Second Amendment restrictionist for the rest of us. Giffords PAC is named for his wife Gabby Giffords, a former Arizona U.S. Rep. who was shot at a campaign event where 12 others were wounded and six killed, including Federal Judge John Roll.


Wyoming voters elect Harriet Hageman, kick Liz Cheney to political curb

August 17, 2022

Immediately following her embarrassing nearly 40-point Republican primary election ouster by Wyoming voters, tone-deaf Liz Cheney has launched a new organization, known as The Great Task, with the primary goal of keeping former President Trump from regaining the presidency.

“I think that defeating him is going to require a broad and united front of Republicans, Democrats and independents. And that’s what I intend to be part of,” she said.

President Trump weighed in with these remarks on Truth Social.

Appearing on anti-Trump NBC this morning, Cheney said, “I will do whatever it takes to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office.”

The loser who can’t comprehend the fact that she is unable to generate GOP support, has even dangled the possibility of a presidential campaign.


Bidding a cheery farewell to lyin’ Liz

August 16, 2022

RINOcrat Liz Cheney faces Trump supporters at the Wyoming polls today as they turn out to vote for Trump-endorsed Attorney Harriet Hageman

When 41 percent of poll respondents indicate they are casting a vote against the incumbent, it demonstrates an astronomical level of grassroot voter dissatisfaction. Wyoming has a single seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, currently occupied by Liz Cheney. Her campaign website encourages democrats to reregister as Republicans to aid her failing primary campaign, providing an insight into her lack of commitment to conservative values and the desire of leftists to keep her in office to continue to do their bidding. Wyoming election laws also allow same-day changes at local polling places.

Although the deep-red state backed Donald Trump by 70 percent in 2020, Cheney notoriously joined with the united democrats and nine other GOP defectors as she voted to impeach the former president. Liz Cheney referred to him as “a threat to democracy.” 

Attorney Harriet Hageman, backed by President Trump and endorsed by numerous other GOP leaders, leads Cheney by double digits, 57% to 28%. Her values are solid, which will give a boost to the voters of Wyoming who voted overwhelmingly for Trump.

Of the other nine GOP representatives who joined Cheney voting for impeachment, four — seeing their dismal future — chose not to seek reelection, while three lost their primaries to Trump-backed challengers. Only two, Dan Newhouse (WA) and David Valadao (CA) will take their chances in the general election. Both states are blue and should regard these Republicrats as their own.

Cheney previously stated she would not launch a “Democrats for Cheney” group attempting to recruit supporters from across the political aisle. “That is not something that I have contemplated, that I have organized or that I will organize,” Cheney deceitfully said at the time.

Polls close at 7:00 PM.  The Secretary of State will post election results as they become available.


Mark Levin reveals dem duplicity amid Trump raid: TV at its finest

August 15, 2022

We’ve spent our lifetimes with television…seeing the good, bad, mediocre and occasionally something so spectacular it will stay with us. The most recent Mark Levin nationally syndicated program titled, “Mar-A-Lago Raid Fallout, Sunday On Life, Liberty and Levin” falls into the rare, spectacular category. Civil rights lawyer Leo Terrell, a former democrat who saw the light and became a dedicated Trump supporter, and brilliant conservative author Victor Davis Hanson joined Mark Levin on “Life, Liberty & Levin” Sunday, August 14 at 8pm (ET) on Fox News.

It is our hope our readers can open this link and view the program, or would have seen it during one of the two instances it recently ran. The program was packed with solid information, delivered by three accomplished political observers, who each expressed alarm at the degradation of our Constitutional rights by the democrat party elites who work double time to disable any future aspirations of former President Donald Trump. It is both enlightening and infuriating. Levin minces no words on Twitter.


Trump-hating Liz Cheney going down to defeat in Wyoming

July 25, 2022

Recent poll shows Liz Cheney trailing Harriet Hageman 52% to 30%

Those who watched egotistical U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney arrogantly eviscerate former President Trump on Fox’s Sunday morning news show are aware it’s not a leap to conclude her political days are numbered. Cheney was one of ten Republicans who voted to impeach Donald Trump, some who are not running for reelection and others who are facing strong challengers.

Political watchers expect a massive Cheney loss in Wyoming’s August 16, 2022 GOP primary against Trump-endorsed challenger Harriet Hageman who was born, raised and focused her legal career in Wyoming. Liz Cheney, aptly known as a carpetbagger, relocated to the state to run for congress.

Donald Trump’s single biggest win among all the states in 2020 was in Wyoming, with 70% of the voters casting their ballots for him. Verbally thrashing the vigorous president who presided over a stellar economy and high employment is not a winning strategy, especially in Wyoming. The Casper Star-Tribune running a banner headline declaring, “The poll results are in: Hageman holds commanding lead over Cheney,” provides in-depth coverage of the upcoming election. Still, magical thinker Cheney, living in an alternative universe, bizarrely dangles the possibility of a 2024 presidential run.

Just as Arizona elected state committeemen did with John McCain, Jeff Flake and Cindy McCain, the Wyoming Republican Party, in a display of dynamic unity, voted to censure Liz Cheney following Trump’s impeachment, voting last fall to no longer recognize her as a member of the GOP.

Meet Harriet Hageman, check out her Issues page, and send her a donation that will help send Republicrat Liz Cheney back to Wisconsin, D.C., Virginia, Illinois or any number of other places she’s lived before moving to Wyoming for the sole purpose of running for congress — where she does not represent the state’s conservative voters.
