Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio exhibits more integrity than foes

June 24, 2017

In anticipation of his upcoming trial, the failing Arizona Republic is thrusting a multi-pronged pitchfork in Joe Arpaio’s direction.  Dissipated columnist EJ Montini gloats in an on-line video in which he appears to be unwell. His counterpart, Laurie Roberts leaps onboard with her own spew of negativity. Political cartoonist Steve Benson, who devoted years to churning out contemptuous criticism towards Arpaio has now turned his focus to President Trump, another Republican to despise and attempt to bring down.

This single sentence sums up the newspaper’s bias: “Joe Arpaio — the man, not the lawman — is the defendant in a federal criminal trial scheduled to begin in Phoenix on Monday.”

Arpaio, who fittingly celebrated his 85th birthday which occurs on Flag Day, faces a criminal contempt trial on allegations that he violated a federal judge’s orders to stop enforcing federal immigration law. Joe Arpaio, the son of Italian immigrants, has obviously never been against immigration. Illegal hordes invading our country, using counterfeit or stolen ID to facilitate their lives here are not immigrants.

What you need to remember: Joe Arpaio, an Army veteran and career lawman who rose from a Washington DC police officer to worldwide assignments within the Drug Enforcement Administration, culminating with heading the Arizona DEA office prior to initially running for Sheriff in 1992 — was doing the job the citizens of Maricopa County repeatedly elected him to do.

Democrat Paul Penzone, the Soros supported leftist candidate, who succeeded Arpaio is working to eradicate any semblance of the last 24 years where Sheriff Arpaio was the popular chief law enforcement professional in Maricopa County. The liberal newspaper, which supports open borders and amnesty, led the charge against him. Shamefully the editorial policy is overseen by editor Phil Boas, who is Arpaio’s son-in-law. Boas claims he recuses himself from coverage of Arpaio.

George Soros, a muti-billionaire, is a socialist who ultimately dropped $2 million into Penzone’s campaign as he has been funding liberal candidates across the nation in an attempt to alter the U.S. Justice system. Politico carries the shocking exposé.

John McCain & George Soros: Decades long nefarious connections

June 22, 2017

Radical leftist Soros aims to influence elections and public policy with cash infusions

High dollar donations from suspect characters and dubious international players are hallmarks of the McCain Institute for International Leadership, housed at Arizona State University. its shady dealings need not only a bright light but a good dose of disinfectant.

The Daily Caller reports that critics note that the institute’s donors and McCain’s personal leadership in the organization’s exclusive “Sedona Forum” bear an uncanny resemblance to the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) that annually co-mingled special interests and powerful political players in alleged pay-to-play schemes.

The McCain Institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.” Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals.

ABC 15 AZ  reported in 2016 on a $1 million Saudi Arabian donation to the institute, a contribution the McCain group has refused to explain publicly.

Even the far-left Washington Post questions the legitimacy of McCain’s claim that he has nothing to do with the institute that bears his name.

Donations at or exceeding $100,000 include monies raised by McCain Presidential Campaign. Also on the list are the McCain Institute Foundation and Cindy Hensley McCain’s Hensley Beverage Company. In the $25,000 – $99,999 category is McCain’s socialist friend, multi-billionaire George Soros, who disdains international borders. The notorious Gregory and Lisa WendtSan Francisco liberals who have worked with McCain operatives to oust elected precinct committeemen in Arizona precincts — are on the list, as is “The Smith Richardson Foundation’s grant [which] supports the project: From Reset to Containment: In Search of a Better U.S. Policy towards Putin’s Russia.”  This sounds suspiciously akin to the issue  McCain has been manufacturing  to discredit President Donald Trump.

Socialist Soros, one of the most powerful men o the planet, controls a vast network of radical organizations that is nearly unfathomable. Through them, he and his family are able to mobilize street mobs, turning incidents into incendiary hordes of rioters as we’ve seen repeatedly.  Ferguson, Missouri was a single example. The thuggery and violence associated with Black Lives Matter was a direct result of Soros’ influence and money.  Discover the Networks, a guide to the political left, has a wealth of information.

In 2016 Politico reported that George Soros’ latest quest was a “quiet overhaul of America’s criminal justice system. Here in Arizona, he funded a losing candidate for Maricopa County Attorney and a winning candidate for sheriff, spending $2 million to topple Sheriff Joe Arpaio and install Democrat Paul Penzone. Liberal Democrats and RINOs are the recipients of his generosity. Check out Open Secrets lists under Recipients and Congressional Committees.

Twitter erupts with concerns about John McCain’s health

June 9, 2017

Inability to rationally communicate raise questions he’s had a TIA or mini-stroke 

John McCain, no friend of President Donald Trump, is not a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee (how could he be?) but he wrangled a spot to grill fired FBI Director James Comey — trying his damnedest to get Comey to implicate President Trump in the “Russian probe.”

McCain failed miserably.  Comey, however, did make himself look incompetent at best and a scoundrel at worst, as he admitted giving copies of his meeting notes to Daniel Richman, a Columbia University law professor/friend with explicit instructions to get them high visibility coverage.

As to the envious McCain who can’t imagine political novice Donald Trump captured the job McCain has spent his lifetime dreaming of — sitting in the Oval Office — he continues to undermine President Trump at every turn.

Twice as he questioned Comey, John McCain referred to President Trump as “Mr. Comey.” No wonder James Comey told McCain he was “confused” by his line of questions. (video under link.)

Joe Arpaio and the facts get skewed in NYT report

May 24, 2017

Count on the New York Times to write a n inaccurate article on former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The intent of reporter Fernanda Santos was clearly to skewer the career lawman who was repeatedly elected by Maricopa County voters to an unprecedented six-four years terms.

If Fernanda was named Colleen McClanahan, would she have been given this assignment in which she conspicuously interviewed only Hispanics who were erroneously led to believe that Arpaio was targeting them without cause. His workplace raids exposed illegal alien profiteers — business owners and their agents — who hired illegal foreign nationals at substandard wages. Those in the U.S. illegally were rightly booked.

In what clearly appeared to be a personal vendetta carried out by a federal judge timed to coincide with the General Election in which the popular Arpaio was on the ballot running for a seventh term, he was charged with criminal contempt of court for ignoring U.S. District Judge Murray Snow’s order in a three-year old “racial-profiling” case. Arpaio acknowledged violating Snow’s order but insisted the breach was unintentional.

Arpaio was made to sound pathetic, when he is anything but. At age 84, he is quick-witted and robust, with an excellent memory and thoughtful demeanor. Reporter Santos portrays Arpaio as virtually friendless, left to look back wistfully over his expansive career. That, too, is delusional on her part. He still rates standing ovations and has maintained an unwavering base of loyalists.

The article briefly focuses on Arpaio’s successor, Sheriff Paul Penzone, but neglects to mention that Socialist billionaire George Soros, who is contemptuous of national borders, funded his campaign as part of a massive effort to reconfigure the U.S. Justice System. Penzone, who  refers to illegal aliens as  “guests” meets Soros’ criteria. Also missing from the report is the fact that Penzone had roughed up his former wife while a sergeant on the Phoenix Police force and was placed on administrative leave.

Santos scores another deception as she writes, “Fiscal conservatives deserted Arpaio, weary of the rising costs of his legal bills.“ Missing is any reference that Paul Penzone is angling for a $10 million budget hike for the upcoming fiscal year, which she obviously considers unworthy of mention.  Apparently the sidelong glancing Santos is only able to focus her negativity on Arpaio, which she then pumps up with flaccid “facts.”

Arpaio’s renown Tent City has been dismantled by Penzone, who has negatively referred to the cost saving effort as a “circus.”  The tents are military surplus, the same tents our service personnel bunk in. Here in Phoenix they are air-cooled.  In the Middle East desert, there is no such accommodation for our troops.

Included in the interview is a 31-year-old state legislator, identified as “a son of Mexican immigrants” (legal? illegal?) who represents the West Phoenix district where he grew up. He recalls seeing sheriff’s deputies “going down my street, raiding homes in my neighborhood.” This is a brazen lie. Such raids would only take place with a warrant issued in criminal cases, yet the bogus recollection is included as part of Fernanda Santos’ report. If his neighbors were drug dealers or murderers, he neglected to mention it.

The New York Times, it should be remembered, is the same newspaper that in 2008 — during John McCain’s failed presidential bid — wrote a piece on Arizona politics, highlighting then-congressman John Shadegg. He referred to his constituents who believe that a sovereign nation has a right to secure its borders, asxenophobic and intolerant.”  Shadegg is no longer a congressman.  He’s now earning a lucrative salary as a DC lobbyist — and no longer insulting us.


Salvadoran “refugees,” Mexican Mafia bring terror to US cities

Despite dozens of vicious MS-13 gang members — mostly illegals — captured in a  Los Angeles raid, AZ Sens. McCain and Flake remain committed to amnesty

Following a three-year investigation involving multiple law enforcement agencies, dozens of members of the murderous MS-13 gang have been charged in a Los Angeles federal court in what law enforcement officials called one of the most significant busts of the transnational gang in its notorious decades-long history.

Among those arrested is a former head of the entire gang in Los Angeles and a dozen high-ranking members, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Central District of California announced in this statementThe vast majority of these gang members are illegal aliens.

“This gang is responsible for murders –- both of rival gangsters and innocent bystanders –- as well as drug dealing and extortion in many communities in the Los Angeles area,” said Acting United States Attorney Sandra R. Brown. “With thousands of members here in the Southland, the gang’s power is widespread –– power which it maintains with severe acts of violence.”

The investigation involved nearly two dozen law enforcement agencies led by the FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Drug Enforcement Agency and the Los Angeles Police Department.

“This gang uses coercion and intimidation while inflicting horrific violence in the neighborhoods where they operate,” said ATF Los Angeles Field Division Special Agent in Charge Eric Harden. “Today is a great win for justice and a heavy message to the community. Law enforcement will combine their resources and all our areas of expertise to cripple these organizations. We will win, they will lose.”

MS-13 started three decades ago on the streets of L.A., and was originally made up young illegals from El Salvador. Today its tentacles reach throughout Central America and across the United States — from the west to east coasts with a series of gruesome slayings recently in New York City. Last month President Donald Trump singled out the vicious gang as “one of the gravest threats to American safety.”

Yet Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, who led the failed 2013 Gang of Eight amnesty scheme with a gaggle of the most far left Democrats and a couple of other RINOs, remain dedicated to gifting rights belonging to Americans to illegal invaders from Mexico and Central America. They no doubt hope to wait until after Jeff Flake’s 2018 reelection bid before flipping on the neon “enter here” switch and rolling out the amnesty welcome mat again. Don’t provide the opportunity. Stop Jeff Flake with your ballot.

Dr. Kelli Ward offers Arizonans a far better, conservative choice — unlike Republicrats McCain and Flake who both refused to vote for the 2016 GOP presidential nominee — now President Donald Trump.


Kerplunk! Sheriff Penzone falls from grace

May 5, 2017

That didn’t take long.  Paul Penzone, the new shurff in town, is already feeling the wrath of the newspaper that couldn’t wait to see him unseat former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had been reelected to an unprecedented six 4-year terms. 

The upset stung, but was not unexpected since Republican Arpaio was in the eye of the storm for doing the job he was repeatedly elected to do. It didn’t hurt that Penzone was the darling of the illegal alien protectors at the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) or that he had secured the financial backing of open borders multi-billionaire globalist George Soros. In August 2016, Politico reported that Soros was working behind the scenes throughout the nation to overhaul the U.S. Justice system — working to elect liberal prosecutors and law enforcement professionals as a means of loosening America’s criminal justice structure. Electing Democrat Paul Penzone was a part of that ambitious scheme.

With this background, fast forward to a recent newspaper editorial. Elvia Diaz takes on Penzone, chastising him for wanting to replace the court ordered advisory panel put in place to hamstring Joe Arpaio.  Count on the fact that the word “controversial” is still used in conjunction with Joe Arpaio. That’s de rigueur. No mention is made of the fact that Penzone has referred to illegal invaders as “guests.”

The ostensibly independent six-member panel, arising out of a lawsuit, was mandated by U.S. District Court Judge Murray Snow, who has routinely evidenced his own biases. Since then-sheriff Arpaio opted out of playing games, the panel members are all recommended by the ACLU which represents the plaintiffs in the ongoing Melendres case.

But why go after their pet Penzone? Paul Penzone wants to change the members and configuration from six to five members. In exerting independence, he is distressing both editorialist Diaz— the obvious Linda Valdez successor-in-training —- and the Hispanic activists who are now attempting to rein him in. What a surprise.  He doesn’t find this muzzling any more appealing than Arpaio did. He says the antagonistic positions of the current panel members make the situation unworkable and has announced he “won’t respond to unreasonable demands or unrealistic expectations.”

Diaz chastises Penzone, warning him there could be another Arpaio waiting to challenge him in four years.

A liberal, Penzone has set up citizens panels to advise him on other issues that focus on blacks, Hispanics and homosexuals. But according to the report, the “activists” say those groups are composed of Penzone’s sympathizers and don’t speak for “undocumented immigrants“ —– which this site chooses to refer to in more precise terms as “illegal aliens,” since we don‘t adhere to the AP Stylebook.

Silly us. We were laboring under the obvious misconception that the sheriff of one of the largest counties in the United States represented us all — even white, non-Hispanic heterosexuals who happen to be citizens.

Imagine having the tenacity to hold such brazenly seditious thoughts! Then again, that’s likely why you’re reading Seeing Red AZ in the first place.


AG Sessions visits AZ, announces new border security measures

April 12, 2017

U.S.A.G. Jeff Sessions gives the speech we’ve been waiting years to hear

 U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions visited Arizona on Tuesday and outlined President Trump’s bold new plan to secure our southern border.  Unequivocally stating, “This is the Trump era,” the attorney general announced new crackdowns on illegal immigration.

Read the full text of Attorney General Sessions’s speech as he addressed the uniformed men and women who serve in Customs and Border Protection  — providing the front line of border security.

Sessions stated that federal prosecutors are now required to consider for prosecution a broadened list of offenses, which he clearly outlines with bullet points in the text.

For those who didn’t get a chance to hear his long-awaited message, enjoy it here.
