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.

U.S. Supreme Court under fire by conservative-hating dems

May 7, 2022

The brilliance of Victor Davis Hanson shines with his recent commentary titled, “Losing the People? Then Change the Rules.”

He focuses on the political left’s desire to facilitate its agenda by increasing the size of the U.S. Supreme Court, turning historical precedent on its ear in order to upend the Republican majority, the last three of whom — Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett — were nominated by President Donald Trump, a sure-fire rankler to the left.

The fact that the most recent Supreme Court appointee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, was a Biden administration pick is of no consequence. They want total control as a previous democrat Pres. Franklin Roosevelt tried and failed to grab by a court-packing scheme in 1937.*

Historical information on the court from its inception through the present, including pictures and bios (linked under the names of the justices) can be seen here.


Greater agenda behind leaked Supreme Court document

May 5, 2022

Much speculation has surrounded the recent news of what has been called the Roe v. Wade leaker, a person — likely a law clerk — with a left-wing agenda, who calculatingly made public a draft copy of Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion that has resulted in wild protests across the United States.

This is less about abortion than it is about diverting attention from the dismal Biden presidency marked by unparallel inflation and a calamitous illegal invasion to which the dems turn a blind eye, viewing those who disregard our national border as a bolstered democrat voting bloc.

Democrats have been despondent over Biden’s plunging poll numbers. His weakness on the economy, energy, the violent crime surge, foreign policy, the border crisis, COVID-19 mandates and referring to parents who protest Critical Race Theory and transgenderism being taught to their children as “domestic terrorists,” none of which carry majority support.

This diversion scheme is intended to ward off what increasingly appear to be major losses in the upcoming elections. Real Clear Politics aggregated polling numbers are the worst ever, with 62.8% of Americans stating the country is headed in the wrong direction. Only 29.4% of respondents said we are heading in the right direction.

Now the focus has shiftily shifted to the issue of abortion with rioting mobs assembling across the breadth of the nation, declaring the right to murder pre-born human babies at any time before birth is a justifiable right. The left preposterously calls it “health care.”

This intentionally constructed mob-related frenzy threatening the justice’s safety resulted in a “non-scalable” security fence being erected around the Supreme Court building as the Department of Justice and the FBI are in pursuit of the leaker who put this calamity in motion to provoke the radical base to fend off a likely dem disaster in the November midterm elections.

Read this explanatory May 3, 2022 press release from the office of Chief Justice John Roberts.

The purposeful leak is consistent with the leftist assault on the Supreme Court that has increasingly intensified. Democrats have been enraged ever since former presidents George W. Bush and especially Donald Trump’s appointees solidified a conservative majority. Bush appointed Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito. Donald Trump appointed Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett to the nine-member Court.

Unlike Biden, neither of them announced that only applicants of a particular gender and ethnicity need apply.

No one dies in Arizona: The era of magical language

April 7, 2022

Words matter…now, more than ever

Locals who read obituaries have noticed a new phenomenon. Arizonans don’t die. They “pass away.” As language gets softened to obscure realities, we no longer are invaded by illegal aliens. They have morphed into “migrants.” Problems have mysteriously evaporated. People now have “issues.” Contacting someone is now passé, foolishly replaced by “reaching out.” And sex? There are no longer men and women, as we learned from Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson who recently appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee for her confirmation hearing. During questioning from Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Jackson said she could not provide a definition for the word “woman” — maintaining it was not in her purview as a judge to answer that, absurdly adding, “I’m not a biologist.”

In a “woke” world there are no longer “pedophiles,” a word which we are told “stigmatizes” the perverts it describes. The preferred, more palatable term is now Minor Attracted Person, or MAP, despite the fact that they tragically ruin the lives of children. On March 14, SRAZ posted, “Education or indoctrination? Educrats push LGBTQ agenda, teacher sues,” which puts this lunacy into context.

Acceptance of thievery has gone mainstream in California following the 2014 passage of a referendum known as Proposition 47, which reduced the classification of most nonviolent property and drug crimes, including theft and fraud for amounts up to $950, from a felony to a non-prosecuted misdemeanor. Emboldened smash-and-grab criminals (video) enter high-end jewelry and other upscale stores, then boldly walk out with filched merchandise without fear of legal repercussions.

When democrats are elected, be assured the inmates are running the asylum. They condone lawlessness, destroy our education system, distort reality, impose ever increasing taxation and bludgeon our language for their own gains.

Take just two minutes to read the Heritage Foundation’s first-rate observation on politically correct vs. accurate terminology, in “Sorry, but the Accurate Legal Term is ‘Illegal Alien’,” by Hans von Spakovsky, Senior Legal Fellow. You’ll be smarter for having read it.

Trickery on display as WH seeks to reconfigure SCOTUS

March 28, 2022

There is no denying the push is on to remove conservative Justice Clarence Thomas, 73, from the U.S. Supreme Court.  Democrats, undeniably energized by their successful push for the resignation of democrat Justice Stephen Breyer — allowing Biden to make a “historic” appointment of a radical black female to replace him.

Emboldened by their easy victory, there is now a smear campaign being waged against Justice Thomas’s wife, Ginni, which is sure to quickly proceed from the smoldering stage to requiring four alarm fire hoses.

Breyer, 83, a Bill Clinton appointee, acquiesced to the pressure in order for a younger, leftist justice with an agenda to have the ability to influence the court for decades and provide Biden with the notable appointee that they hope will resonate in the upcoming midterm elections.

As a black conservative, Justice Thomas is an anomaly, who rankles the left’s desire to pigeonhole people based on immutable characteristics, which take precedence over principles. 

Currently the longest serving justice, Thomas has been on the court since 1991, after being nominated by President George H. W. Bush to succeed Justice Thurgood Marshall. Justice Thomas, was recently hospitalized for “flu-like” symptoms.

To the left, the current overarching issue is to effect a way to provide Biden’s handlers with another vacancy, which would alter the political makeup of the court — after President Trump successfully nominated Neil M. Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett. They were all finally confirmed by the U.S. Senate following a despicable and ultimately unsuccessful campaign to defame Brett Kavanaugh.

Their latest trickery is to call into disrepute the integrity of Justice Thomas’ wife, Ginni, for her personal activities at the Jan. 6, capitol rally, which has been redefined as an “insurrection,” by the rabid media. Mrs. Thomas is an unabashed Trump supporter, which last we heard is not illegal.

Ginni Thomas’ attendance at the rally and emails exchanges with friend and former Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) are now being called into question, though she is a private citizen and he is no longer an elected official. It’s all part of a scheme to attempt to force Justice Thomas to retire.

We’re banking on courageous Justice Thomas to clearly advise them to stuff it. If you’ve read his autobiography, “My Grandfather’s Son: A Memoir,” you’ll know he has endured and overcome far worse than a swarm of vile democrats. Remember his confirmation hearings?

Judicial activist Ketanji Jackson evades questions in SCOTUS hearing

March 24, 2022

Leftist local newspaper shows its bias headlining, “Jackson seems headed for high court confirmation”

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first black woman nominated to the Supreme Court, has come under intense questioning by Republican senators during her confirmation hearing. She is accused of being too lenient as a trial judge as she imposed light sentences in child pornography cases. In some cases, Jackson actually apologized to the child predators for imposing even absurdly light sentences.

Prior to the vacancy existing and while pressure was being applied to Justice Stephen Breyer to resign in order to give Joe Biden the ability to make this “historic” appointment, Biden injudiciously announced his intent to nominate a black woman to the high court. Biden made a mockery of the judicial process, effectively telling anyone else, regardless of their qualifications; they’d be wasting their time based on immutable characteristics over which they have no control.

U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz, (R-TX); Marsha Blackburn (R-TN); Josh Hawley, (R-MO); and Lindsey Graham, (R-SC), led the charge on the Senate Judiciary Committee, pointing to evidence Jackson was soft on crime, while a judge on the U.S. District Court in D.C. In typical leftist fashion, during the judicial hearing Jackson was unable to define the term, “woman,” absurdly claiming she’s not a biologist.

The senators underscored seven cases in which her sentences were below guidelines from the U.S. Sentencing Commission, which sets recommended sentences that judges must consider but are not obligated to impose. She also shortened recommended probation for these heinous child sexual abuse crimes that impose lifelong emotional scars. Jackson continually gave evasive answers to the questions posed to her for the lifetime Supreme Court appointment.

Since race appears to be the controlling factor, it’s worth remembering Republican President George H. W. Bush nominated brilliant black Republican Clarence Thomas to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court in 1991. He still serves with distinction (recent photo courtesy of the Supreme Court of the United States).

Republican Ronald Reagan broke precedence in 1981 by appointing Arizonan Sandra Day O’Connor as the first female justice.

Democrats who went ballistic over President Donald Trump’s three appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court — Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett — are now whining over the robust questioning of Jackson.

AZ voter fraud news you’ll never find in the AZ Republic

March 11, 2022

It would be terrific to report Gateway Pundit’s (GP) Jordan Conradson has scooped the local newspaper on covering a case of Arizona voter fraud, known as ballot harvesting. But the popular national site didn’t actually “scoop” the newspaper. Using that term would imply GP actually beat the failing disseminator of disinformation to the punch. Count on the fact that the omission is due to the decision to entirely avoid the topic which the leftist editors, columnists, and few remaining reporters claim never occurs.

Any evidence of voter fraud substantiates what Maricopa County’s 2020 presidential ballot recount was based upon, making it intolerable to the Trump-despising, Hillary-endorsing, Biden-supporting daily.

On July 1, 2021 Townhall carried, A Win for Election Integrity: Supreme Court Hands Democrats a Big Loss.” It celebrates the 6-3 SCOTUS opinion, Brnovich, Attorney General of Arizona, Et Al v. Democratic National Committee, Et Al., which upholds two Arizona voting provisions: a ban on “ballot harvesting,” and a policy that throws out an entire ballot if it was cast in the wrong precinct. Challengers falsely argued that both provisions discriminate against minority voters. The three dissenting votes were cast by democrat Justices Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer, and Sonia Sotomayor.

On March 13, 2012 SRAZ posted this instructive Project Veritas video showing the ease with which ballot harvesting fraud can be perpetrated.

Biden bows at radical “Demand Justice” SCOTUS diversity altar

February 26, 2022

DJ’s website is clear about its objectives: “We fight every day on issues that matter to the future of the federal courts – because every progressive issue depends on it.”

It’s likely you’ve never heard of Demand Justice (DJ). Most Americans haven’t. The leftist group, headed by Brian Fallon, is focused on the U.S. Supreme Court, which doesn’t meet its extreme standards. Topping the list is “transforming the court and expanding the number of high court justices to ensure a preponderance of diversified democrats.”  Be aware this does not include diversity of thought. In addition to guaranteeing those with a leftist agenda are elevated to the U.S. Supreme Court and other federal courts, Demand Justice considers as paramount qualifications immutable characteristics over which none of us have any control, such as our race and gender.

Mounting pressure from the left forced Justice Stephen Breyer, nominated by Bill Clinton, to announce his retirement providing Biden’s handlers the opportunity to nominate a former public defender, who just happens to fill the necessary race and gender requirements.

While Americans naively think judicial selection is aboveboard and trustworthy, the singled-focused group has been spending $millions on a lobbying campaign on behalf of Ketanji Brown Jackson, Joe Biden’s ultimate nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court. Demand Justice arrogantly sent him this progressive short list* from which to make his final selection.

In this Feb. 24, 2022 press release, Demand Justice announced it will begin a seven-figure ad campaign to support her confirmation, touting her qualifications as the first black woman and the first former public defender nominated to the court. This is an ad buy promoting Ketanji Brown Jackson.

If you’re wondering why Republican former House Speaker Paul Ryan endorsed democrat Jackson for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia when she was nominated by Barack Obama — urging his fellow GOP colleagues to confirm her — it’s because they’re related by marriage. Ketanji Brown Jackson’s husband is Patrick G. Jackson, the twin brother of Ryan’s brother-in-law William Jackson. William Jackson’s wife, Dana, is the sister of Ryan’s wife, Janna.

Demand Justice headlined, “Our Courts Are In Crisis,” with this opening blurb that explains its deceptive scheme: “With a 6-3 Republican supermajority, the Supreme Court is too biased in favor of special interests and Republican politicians. Our democracy is at risk from decisions that suppress the right to vote.

Voter suppression is the hoax perpetrated by democrats to give heft to their meritless claims.

*Seeing Red AZ does not use the word “progressive” as a political description. It is a form of deception preferred by the left, since it denotes forward thinking. Leftist thought is more accurately described as “regressive.”

SCOTUS vacancy looms: Justice Breyer pressured to exit

January 27, 2022

Sen. Chuck Schumer, an ardent leftist, is already heaping Breyer with accolades preceding a final shove

Finally caving to extreme pressure before the midterm elections that could flip the confirming senate, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has announced his retirement at the end of the current term in June. The handwriting is on the wall. He has outlived his usefulness.

This lifetime appointment is a high stakes escapade for the democrat powerbrokers who are keenly aware that the chances of replacing Breyer, 83, with a far leftist, decades younger justice would be impeded if they lost control of the U.S. Senate in the 2022 midterm elections.

Biden is not seeking excellence, having already acknowledged that genitalia and ethnicity top his list of qualifications. He is specifically seeking a black female, which means the only white males who would apply would be doing so to give an air of legitimacy to the skewed process.

Overseeing the selection is Biden’s chief of staff Ron Klain, the powerful man behind the curtain, who has long had a hand in other Supreme Court appointments. He was chief counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee, worked for Bill Clinton as associate counsel, advising on his judicial nominations, including radical Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who stated she preferred the South African constitution to ours. Ginsburg also admitted the reason she fell asleep during then-Pres. Barack Obama’s State of the Nation speech was because she had too much too drink (brief video) which MSM newscasters found humorous. Klain also played a key role in advising Obama to fill high court vacancies with leftist Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Though you might not be familiar with Klain, he has outsized power, especially in the current administration where the president is clearly a mentally and physically impaired incompetent.

Given the state of governmental chaos, is it any wonder that 41% of voters still don’t believe that Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election fairly? This June 23, 2021 survey by Rasmussen Reports found that 55% of likely U.S. voters support forensic audits of election results to ensure there is no voter fraud.

SCOTUS to hear race-based college admissions cases

January 26, 2022

Within two months of his inauguration, Joe Biden’s handlers began hastily reversing the Trump administration‘s policies negating the disproportionate use of race in college admissions. While the Trump administration sought a narrowly tailored use of race or even color-blind admission standards, Biden advanced the practice of using race as a principal factor in selecting students, all for achieving the insultingly illogical goals of racial equity and diversity. High grades and achievement took a back seat to race-based factors, although melanin, the primary determinant of skin pigment, is something over which none of us have any control.

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a case challenging the practice of affirmative action, which factors race into college admissions. Lawsuits assert that Harvard University,* a private institution, and the University of North Carolina,* a state college, discriminate against Asian American applicants, who frequently achieve higher scores than their student counterparts.

In the Harvard case, petitioners argue that the private university’s policy unfairly disadvantages Asian-American applicants in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. In the North Carolina case, petitioners allege that the policy of the public university violates the Equal Protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Biden’s handlers indicated that his administration will aggressively promote affirmative action with his nomination of Kristen Clarke to lead the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, which oversees the department’s position on cases related to affirmative action.

Clarke was previously president of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, an organization that actively defends colleges’ use of race as a key admission factor. She is a staunch advocate of using admissions processes to achieve a student body that is more racially diverse than its applicant pool.

Don’t hold your breathe waiting for a decision on this important matter. The court is not expected to hear the consolidated cases until next term, meaning a decision is not likely until later this year or early next year, according to the informative Ballotpedia.
