Border Patrol apprehends 654 illegals in Yuma, AZ

November 16, 2018

12 illegal aliens have joined in a legal action suing Pres. Trump for denying them their “rights” to claim asylum in the United States

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) substantiates the most recent apprehension of 654 illegal aliens from Guatemala surging across the U.S. border near Yuma in just two days this week. According to this press release, these aliens are not believed to be associated with the large caravan being monitored traveling through Mexico to the United States.

The groups illegally entered on both sides of the San Luis Port of Entry where there is outdated border wall infrastructure. Larger numbers have started to illegally cross shallow portions of the Colorado River near Yuma.

Yet in a display of unmitigated gall, a dozen illegals, aided by accommodating pro-invasion legal teams — even asking for “an awarding of costs and attorneys’ fees” — are suing President Trump, (legal document linked) citing his “shockingly unconstitutional“ actions in not swinging our door wide open to accommodate and provide taxpayer-funded benefits to the hordes of invaders.

This CBP chart details the realities in raw numbers dating back to Fiscal Year 2012. Apprehensions have increased under President Trump’s administration, which has prioritized border security.

Year to date apprehensions in the Yuma Sector are up over 150% compared to this date in Fiscal Year 2018.  Total Fiscal Year 2018 apprehensions were more than double total Fiscal Year 2017 numbers. According to CBP statistics, 60,745 invaders were apprehended or were deemed inadmissible while attempting to enter the U.S. illegally via the southern border in October, the first month of the fiscal year 2019.

A total of 521,090 foreign nationals were apprehended at the southern border in fiscal year 2018 – up from 451,514 in fiscal year 2017. In Yuma alone, more than 26,000 were apprehended in fiscal year 2018. 

Additional information regarding unaccompanied minors and others entering along other southwest border sectors including El Paso and Laredo Texas, Tucson, Arizona and San Diego, California is reported by CBP.

Sabbath slaughter in a synagogue

October 28, 2018

“Worshipers were brutally murdered by a gunman targeting them simply because of their faith.”— Robert Jones, Chief of FBI’s Pittsburgh office

 A day following the arrest of Cesar Altieri Sayoc, 56, charged with sending pipe bombs to prominent liberals, we are hit with news of a mass murder during a joyful Sabbath baby naming ceremony at a Pennsylvania synagogue.

Fortunately, none of the rudimentary devices sent through the mail detonated, though they stoked fear nationally. The combined talents of the FBI, Secret Service, Department of Justice, the U.S. Attorneys’ Office for the Southern District of New York, the NYPD, and Florida law enforcement, were able to zone in on the man with a prior criminal history in short order. Read the criminal complaint here.

That was not the case in the Saturday morning mass shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue. Among the eleven people killed were two brothers and a husband and wife. Six others, including 4 police officers, were wounded in the bloodbath by a gunman, spewing anti-Semitic venom as he opened fire — yelling “All Jews must die,” and that Jews were “committing genocide to his people.”  According to reports, this premeditated vicious crime is likely the deadliest attack against the Jewish community in U.S. history.

The liberal media always look for a connection to President Trump when violence occurs. The heavily armed synagogue gunman, Robert Bowers, 46, was not a fan of the president, referring to him as a “globalist,” and letting it be known that he didn’t vote for him and would never wear a MAGA hat. Bowers was shot by the police and is currently hospitalized. Prosecutors have filed 29 charges against him including violations of federal hate crimes statutes. President Trump has called for the reinstatement of the death penalty.

This is the list of “Persons Sentenced to Execution in Pennsylvania as of Oct. 1, 2018.” Some of them have been on death row for over 30 years. Before leaving office in Jan. 2015, Republican Gov. Tom Corbett signed three execution orders. Incoming Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, placed a moratorium on executions. One of those murderers who hit the jackpot with a Democrat in office, was convicted in 1982 of killing 13 people, including five of his own children. He’s still above ground and getting three squares a day.


AZ Republic views ethnicity as top attribute in Gov’s race

September 10, 2018

Although Arizona’s newspaper of record is still in the thrall of mourning over the passing of John McCain, it has found room on Page One to gear up for Nov. General Election. In the Sunday edition, the Periódico de la República de Arizona  (Arizona Republic) briefly cast aside its grief and all but gave an early endorsement to David Garcia, the Democrat gubernatorial candidate, in an zealous paean that filled a third of the jump page.

There was the cursory, ‘He’s good on education,’ spew that pales in comparison to Gov. Doug Ducey falling on his sword and ponying up the 20% pay hike demanded by the teachers who walked off their jobs for a week. They deserved to be fired rather than rewarded for abandoning over 800,000 students statewide in violation of their contractual agreements.

The teacher’s unions — whose members work 8½ months a year — should consider Ducey their hero.  Instead, they’re enraged that their latest extortionist ploy — #InvestInEd, an irreversible constitutional amendment slated to be on the ballot as Prop. 207, a Marxist redistribution of wealth ‘tax the rich’ scheme — was deep-sixed by the Arizona Supreme Court. They hold Ducey, not the justices responsible. That these educrats who lack a basic grasp of the three distinct branches of government, are teaching Arizona’s students, should concern us all.

What sets Garcia apart isn’t his choice in food or drink, described in minute detail, including his refusal to drink milk at someone else’s home, as his campaign bus hit the political trail. His major accomplishment, over which he has no control, is his ethnicity.  Being a Hispanic running for governor appears to be his major attribute, according to reporter Richard Ruelas. The headline topping his report reads: “Aiming for historic win, Garcia gets on the bus— Democrat would be 2nd Latino governor of Arizona.”

We’ve already had four women governors so gender politics has lost its panache.  In over his head, after serving less than half of his four year term, Arizona Gov. Raul Castro eagerly accepted the offer of President Jimmy Carter to take the post of ambassador to Argentina and was gone in a flash.

Garcia lost his 2014 bid for Superintendent of Public Instruction and now is now focusing his gubernatorial campaign on recklessly abolishing ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) leaving our southern border even more vulnerable to criminals. Garcia is also opposed to constructing the much needed wall along our southern border.

His extreme views mirror those of the left-wing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic, but not the voters of the state of Arizona who overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump in 2016. Divisive identity politics is all David Garcia has.  Running the state requires far more than he offers.

The differences couldn’t be more clear. The wise votes will go to Gov. Ducey. Even Mario Diaz agrees.


19 charged in crime we’ve been told never occurs

August 25, 2018

Voter fraud is a figment of overly fertile imaginations. It never occurs, we’ve been told. Evidence we’ve seen here, here and here, (videos) to the contrary is fantasy.  Democrats preposterously claim any talk about routing out fraud by requiring photo ID is actually engaging in “voter suppression,” and “disenfranchisement” of poor, minority, and elderly voters.

Federal prosecutors in North Carolina see things differently.

Robert J. Higdon, Jr., U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina, on Friday announced the grand jury indictments of 19 non-citizens, ranging in age from 26 to 71, on charges of illegal voting in the 2016 election. The press release, charging multiple defendants voted in more than one election, can be read here.

Democrats who prefer to focus on nonexistent Trump-Russian collusion in the last presidential election need look no further than North Carolina to see evidence of actual fraud. These crimes are undoubtedly replicated across the nation.

Those charged with illegal voting face up to a $100,000 fine and up to a year in prison. Those accused of falsely obtaining citizenship face up to a $350,000 fine and up to six years in prison.

“Up to” indicates a wide range. And what happens when the fines are beyond the ability of the criminals to pay?  Extending their prison time sounds like a decent deterrent.


Judge dismisses lawsuit filed by Flake’s son, ex-wife

August 12, 2018

Flaky Austin Flake and Logan Brown try and fail in another attempt to get rich on the backs of Maricopa County taxpayers

Federal Judge Neil Wake has dismissed the lawsuit brought by Austin Flake and his now ex-wife Logan, who has reclaimed her maiden name of Brown.

The case stemmed from dismissed animal cruelty charges the duo faced in the June 2014 heat related suffocation deaths of nearly two dozen dogs they supposedly were caring for at Green Acre Kennel in Gilbert. The facility was owned by Logan’s mother and step-father, MaLeisa and Jesse “Todd” Hughes, who were vacationing in Florida when the gruesome deaths occurred.

When the Flakes’ checked the kennel on the hot June 20th morning and witnessed the horrific scene, they did not call for veterinary assistance, opting to hose down the dying dogs, then callously piled their dead carcasses in a shed.

The pets sweltered to death, packed together in a steamy utility room, lacking air-conditioning. They had neither food nor water in their stomachs, according to the veterinarian who performed necropsies on the dogs.

On October 14, 2014, a Grand Jury indicted both couples with 21 felony counts and 7 misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals. Ultimately Logan’s parents served short sentences on fraud charges involving lying to the owners of the pets, telling them their dogs ran away. The Hughes’ took plea deals in lieu of going to trial. As defendants, each pleaded guilty to one count of facilitation to commit fraudulent schemes and artifices, and one count of cruelty to animals, both Class 6 felonies. Their sentences included 23 days in jail without the possibility of work release, work furlough, home detention or compliance monitoring.  The days they served equaled one day per dead dog.

After Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery dropped the 21 felony charges and 7 misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals against Austin and Logan Flake, the actual responsible parties, they filed a lawsuit against the taxpayers of Maricopa County and Sheriff Joe Arpaio, seeking $8 million to resurrect their formerly pristine reputations. They claim they were targeted by the Sheriff’s office and their characters were ruined by the investigation. A few $million each could go a long way to soothe their hurt feelings. Fortunately that effort went nowhere.

With their eyes still on the money prize, they angled for another civil trial, this time against the sheriff’s investigative detective.

But Judge Wake has now dismissed that lawsuit, ruling their attorney Stephen Montoya hadn’t provided evidence the detective intended to deprive the Flakes’ of their rights. Read the judge’s order.

SRAZ has written extensively about this tragic set of circumstances and the appalling flakes. Let’s hope this is the last we hear of these grifters. 


Snorting Koch: An open border hallucination

August 2, 2018

If you do an online search of the Cato Institute, you’ll find it listed as an “American libertarian think tank with a moderate right wing bias” or a “conservative think tank”  — confirming that far-left predisposed Google can be not only wrong, but very wrong.

The Washington, D.C. based organization was originally launched in 1973 as the Charles Koch Foundation by billionaire Charles Koch and two associates. By 1976, the name of the Koch funded entity was changed to the Cato Institute. It supports legalization of illicit drugs claiming doing so would generate $106.7 billion in annual budgetary gains and advocates for the abolishment of ICE.

“Conservative” or “right-wing,” it is not, unless you use John McCain, Jeff Flake and Ted Kennedy as templates.

John Binder, writing for Breitbart News headlines his shocking article, “Koch-Backed CATO Institute: ‘Time for the U.S. to Have Open Borders.’ The report is based on this USA Today op-ed by Cato’s Director of Economic Studies, Jeffrey Miron, who says the U.S. “has nothing to fear, and much to gain, from open borders,” adding that Americans should “forget” about building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to stop the illegal invasion of our country.

Cato’s Miron opines:

“President Donald Trump’s recent tweets against open borders come as no surprise. Indeed, even fervent immigration advocates worry that open borders would lower the wages of low-skilled natives, erode national security, and overburden the social safety net. Trump doubled down, tweeting that he would be “willing to ‘shut down’ government” unless Congress approves funding for a border wall with Mexico.

Trump, however, has it exactly backwards: The solution to America’s immigration problems is open borders, under which the United States imposes no immigration restrictions at all. If the U.S. adopts this policy, the benefits will far outweigh the costs.”

The United States is a sovereign nation, rightfully entitled to a secure border and protection for its citizens. In a post-September 11, 2001 world, the issue of opening our country to potential terrorists is never addressed.

Translating the liberal-speak: The United States needs to become an unrestrained, permanent repository of uneducated and unwilling to assimilate Third-Worlder invaders to benefit Americans. We need to fund them with our generous social programs, provide them with health care, educate their kids to the determent of our own, and eagerly accept their criminality. We should ignore the fact that this act of national destruction will ensure a massive expansion of the Democrat/Socialist party that is certain to have permanent negative impacts on our country — the obvious goal of the Cato Institute and the Koch Brothers.  They are radical George Soros clones in drag.

The left-wing, Hillary-endorsing  Arizona Republic newspaper plays this same deceptive game in today’s edition. In a front page article titled, “Migrant reforms floated in House,” it refers to “bi-partisan” supporters of another massive omnibus spending bill funding ‘dreamers’ and other illegals, backed by the American immigration Council an illegal alien support group opposing what it calls, “senseless deportations.” The newspaper blandly describes it as a “non-profit D.C. advocacy group that studies immigration.” Also identified as backing the measure is the “immigration policy analyst” at the “Libertarian Cato Institute.”

The intentional deception jumps off the page.


Kyrsten Sinema’s vicious slurs aimed at women ignored

July 23, 2018

Double standard exists when denigrating women. Men get taken down, women get elected

In today’s highly charged, politically-correct world with celebrities and politicians falling in the wake of the #MeToo movement, heavy footed legislator Paul Mosely (R-LD 5) has more problems than putting pedal to the metal and bragging (video) about his excessive speeds to the officer who pulled him over. Claiming legislative immunity he was given a warning. That loophole has recently been rescinded.

He also has strong faith-based views about women and their place, which is in the home — not in the work force — reportedly asking why working mothers aren’t home with their children. 

But his comments, for which he has apologized, pale in comparison to those of Kyrsten Sinema, who previously was elected to the same Arizona state legislature. Her coarse and foul-mouthed, stunningly offensive remarks viciously denigrating stay-at-home moms received little attention:

An ardent supporter of same-sex marriage, she mockingly blasted women who devote themselves to their families rather than working outside the home. Her crude comment was:

 “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f**k are we really talking about here?” Following the spirit of unity Dems claim to embrace, Sinema then proceeded to deride conservatives as “Neanderthals.”

Sinema, whose 2016 Congressional primary victory was enthusiastically cheered by the Advocate, an LGBT site, praising her for “moving one step closer to being the first openly bisexual member of Congress.”

An atheist who refused to take her oath of office with her hand on the Bible, she now occupies that congressional seat and is running for the U.S. Senate. 

Formerly a Green Party candidate who sent May Day messages to the Communist Worker newspaper, Sinema has re-crafted herself as a soft spoken, aisle-crossing moderate. Democrats, eager to grab a crucial senate seat, have heavily funded her campaign.  According to the June 30. 2018 FEC filings, she has raised $9,563,041.22, spent $6,446,752.43 — much of it on ubiquitous TV ads showcasing her newly crafted soft-spoken image. The hard left liberal still has nearly $5 and a half million cash on hand. 

Don’t be fooled into surrendering a key senate seat to this candidate whose extreme views represent few Arizonans. The senate is entrusted with confirming federal judges and U.S. Supreme Court nominees.

Along with this stellar list of endorsers, Seeing Red AZ strongly supports principled conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. SenateHer primary opponents Martha McSally (often referred to on this site as Sally McCain), and 86-year-old Joe Arpaio refuse to debate her. (video) Your donations will help her stay competitive against the out-of-state money funding Leftist Sinema.
