Mexico: A terrorist nation run by violent drug cartels

November 11, 2019

The United States military is unparalleled. On Veterans Day, we pause to acknowledge the security our troops provide, not only to America, but with peacekeeping missions worldwide in regions where security is threatened or violence is commonplace.

Our troops are deployed in more than 150 countries around the world, with over 170,000 active-duty personnel serving outside the United States and its territories. The numbers, according to Wikipedia, are based on the most recent United States Department of Defense statistics as of June 30, 2019.

In view of the inconceivable carnage Mexican drug cartels inflicted upon three American citizen mothers and their six children — caravanning in three separate vehicles — grotesquely ambushed, brutally slaughtered and burned, leaving other children seriously injured, it’s time to stop our farcical dealings with Mexico. We have no choice other than to acknowledge the country is run by terrorists and to deploy troops on our own border.

Mexico is a dangerous country as evident by these U.S. Department of State advisories, which are not new. Americans are urged to reconsider travel or bluntly advised not to travel, as violent crime, such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery, are widespread. Giving them nearly $300 million a year of American taxpayer dollars has done nothing to alleviate the pervasive crime in the resource-rich country.

There has been a despicable effort to blame the victims and lessen the culpability of the murderers, with Associated Press zoning in on the group’s polygamous past or claiming the slayings were due to “mistaken identities,” the brutal killers thinking they were part of a rival gang, blaming water conflicts within the farming communities where the victims lived and even deriding the dead mothers as part of a “sex cult.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) recently stated, “Mexico is leaning dangerously toward becoming a failed state. We have not seen enough action toward addressing the threat that it presents, not only to the Mexican people but to the American people. When the drug cartels become as big, as powerful, as bold and as callous toward human life as these have become — I think this is a time for us to take this very seriously and to figure out the best steps forward.”

Mexican law enforcement and military are no match to the crime-related violence. In 2018, the number of drug-related homicides in Mexico rose to 33,341, a 15 percent increase from the previous year—and a record high. Mexican drug cartels have killed at least145 candidates and politicians and party workers in the lead-up to Mexico’s 2018 presidential elections.

Global Conflict Tracker lists Mexico in the same category as Syria, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Lebanon and Turkey. 

We need a wall, a vigorous military presence and a fervent commitment to securing our border — Democrat opposition be damned.


Phoenix police chief prioritizes firing officers

November 5, 2019

Newspaper negatively chronicles police shootings

Police work is not your run-of-the-mill occupation. Few jobs have as an integral aspect the fact that when you leave for your shift, you might not return to your family. Rotating schedules include nights and weekends; routinely make officers absent from family events and holidays. High stress levels of crime scenes, where police often have to make split-second, life or death decisions take their toll. Police are accused of using excessive force when trying to subdue those high on drugs and/or armed. Now mandated body cams show isolated aspects of an arrest, calling into question the officer’s decisions. Officer suicides are no longer a rarity.

Corrections officers are attacked and killed while on the job in Arizona prisons. Two such murders took place recently.

The public expects rapid responses from dedicated officers. Yet the local newspaper and the Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams, appointed in 2016, show them no mercy. Scrutiny and criticism have become routine. How many times did you see the video of the arrest of a family of shoplifters, mischaracterized as a little girl taking a doll from a Dollar Store? The officer was fired.

The Sunday edition of the Arizona Republic ran an oversize Page One article and two full jump pages with photos, including sympathetic depictions of shooting “victims.” The lengthy all caps headline?

AZ POLICE SHOOTINGS: SOME OFFICERS FIRE AGAIN AND AGAIN. The sub header: 79 officers shot two or more times — 52% worked for Phoenix — 21.5% worked for Mesa.

Mesa’s controversial Police chief Ramon Batista resigned yesterday following a no confidence vote by Mesa’s police union and Fraternal Order of Police. The Phoenix Law Enforcement Association, (PLEA) abruptly called off a pending vote of no confidence in Chief Williams, with no explanation.

Monday night an impaired wrong way freeway driver was responsible for colliding with Tempe police officers traveling to a crime scene in separate marked vehicles. This past Saturday night, two PPD officers were hospitalized following a DUI-related crash where the impaired driver, traveling at a high rate of speed, slammed into their patrol car as they were making a traffic stop. She was cited and released.

Imagine if the impaired driver was an off-duty officer. There is no doubt the case would not have been handled so gingerly. Career officers are now fearful of reprisals.

Phoenix Police Chief Williams has fired five officers so far this year.


Extreme leftist running for San Francisco DA

November 2, 2019

Rogue runs for San Francisco prosecutor

Michelle Malkin has done it again. As only she can, she exposes the underbelly of the now fetid city of San Francisco, once a vacation destination.

InRadical Spawn Chesa Boudin: America’s Most Toxic DA Candidate,” Malkin reveals his links to every unsavory character from his terrorist Weather Underground cop-killing parents and their partners-in-crime Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who raised him from infancy after his parents were incarcerated, to his alliances with the Hollywood Trump-haters, culminating with his connections to Globalist billionaire George Soros and his insiders who are shoveling cash into Boudin’s campaign coffers.  In 2016, Politico exposed financier Soros’ clandestine efforts to “overhaul the U.S. criminal justice system,” investing heavily in District Attorney campaigns.

Malkin writes:

“Now Boudin wants to avenge his cop-killing parents by imposing “restorative justice” and “decarceration” policies that will incentivize violent crime and endanger lives in San Francisco and beyond. If you think California is on fire now, just wait until this red diaper baby takes control of the prosecutorial wheel.

The cornerstone of Boudin’s campaign is sabotaging immigration enforcement. He has called for prosecution and imprisonment of ICE and police officers for doing their jobs and vowed to create an “immigrant defense unit” within the DA’s office to “stand up to Trump on immigration.”

These extremist views tug at the damaged heartstrings of Socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who has endorsed Boudin in the upcoming Nov. 5th election.

Prosecutors, whether called District or County Attorneys, in their specific jurisdictions, are given the responsibility of keeping communities safe by presenting the government’s evidence stemming from police reports or grand jury proceedings to a judge or jury for a final determination. Their job is not to protect the worst of the worst and give them free rein to re-offend as DA candidate Chesa Boudin pledges to do.


No Wray of hope at the FBI

October 19, 2019

American Greatness posts an intriguing report titled, “Christopher Wray Has Some Explaining to Do.” The attorney author, who uses a pseudonym, reveals that although FBI director Wray promised the bureau would be better at complying with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), he has actually fought hard against transparency and accountability. We’ve previously written, “knowledge is power.” After reading this, it’s apparent that certainty is no longer assured.

Editors’ note: We will be unable to monitor comments today. For that reason, the comment section is turned off.


Heroin poppy purge provides sob story for illegals

September 29, 2019

Misplaced sympathy: Actual victims are Americans not Guatemalans

If you thought the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic was loathsome in its previous incarnation, its recent acquisition by GateHouse puts an even more outrageous spin on the news. 

A front page report headed THE MIGRANTS, sits atop the emboldened headline, “Poppies cultivated for heroin fuel crisis.” Below that is the tearjerker line: “Guatemalan farmers fled to U.S. after crops were razed.” This twist puts to rest the illegal invaders claims of seeking fear-based asylum. What they want is economic security in the country they were more than willing to flood with heroin.

Readers are then introduced to Carlos. He previously farmed potatoes, oats and corn, before finding a much more lucrative and prettier crop of bright red poppies he and others like him were happy to cultivate for their milky fluid used to make heroin. Carlos says he and his friends were persuaded to replace their vegetable crops with what he was told would produce medicine.

Sure thing, Carlos.

If you thought the bad guys are the willing farmers, often engaging in violent battles to ensure enough water for their deadly but highly profitable crops — via their complicity in flooding American cities with heroin — you‘d be dead wrong. The ogre in the tale of woe is none other than the United States. Our government has “pressured” Guatemala to eradicate the profitable poppy fields, throwing Carlos and his complicit compatriots back into growing vegetables.

Carlos admits the loss of revenue from growing poppies was the main reason he decided to leave and join the massive influx of Guatemalans invading the U.S.  “They took away the poppy. These potatoes are hardly worth anything.”

He says he heard that as long as parents showed up for their court hearings, they could stay in the U.S. and work while their kids went to public school free. Guatemala, which only requires a sixth grade education, imposes fees for any schooling past that grade level.

These staggering numbers are directly from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. They include 72,873 unaccompanied minors who were apprehended by Border Patrol through August.

During the same time period, Border Patrol apprehended 457,871 illegal invaders arriving as “family units,” a claim which DNA oral swabs frequently expose as untrue. Many of the children used to gain entry by non-related adults are trafficked or purchased. Many are sexually exploited. They are a factor contributing to a 406% increase from the previous year. Of those, nearly 40% — more than from any other single country — came from Guatemala.

These are just a few harsh facts you won’t read in the rag.


Deviant Dem megadonor Ed Buck finally arrested after 3rd man overdoses & Update

September 20, 2019

Two other men died after participating in sexual fetishes, including Buck administering injections of methamphetamines

Longtime Arizona residents will have no trouble recalling how the leftist Arizona Republic chronicled and canonized the effort to impeach conservative Gov. Evan Mecham. We’ve been inundated with praiseful accounts of a certain war hero, but few are aware Mecham left college to join the U.S. Army Air Corps during the height of World War II, receiving training as a fighter pilot. He was shot down and held as a prisoner of war receiving an Air Medal and Purple Heart for his valiant service. Active in his church and a successful businessman, he served in the state senate before winning a three-way race for governor in 1986.

Former readers of the extremist rag, masquerading as a disseminator of news, will recall the infamous photo of a then-young Ed Buck, delivering recall petitions to the State Capitol. That brash young man is older— with a head of white hair — but certainly not wiser.

Buck, a name he altered from Buckmelter, was a homosexual activist who organized the recall shortly after Mecham’s inauguration.

Columnist EJ Montini and the newspaper served as ‘Cheerleaders for Buck,’ who at the time appeared to come from central casting:  young, fresh-faced, and gay…the radical “trifecta.”

The newspaper happily embraced all efforts including a successful impeachment to take down Gov. Mecham. He was eventually cleared in a criminal trial, but not before he was removed from office. Mecham’s unforgivable flaw was his conservative political bent.

After doing his damage here, Buck left the desert for Tinseltown, where his basic lack of character eventually caught up with him — despite the willful blindness of the myriad Democrats with whom he hobnobbed and financially benefited. Ed Buck, 65, is finally in police custody.

Seeing Red AZ covered Buck’s deadly sexual predatory proclivities in this January 2019 post,Dem donor Ed Buck, 2 dead men and counting & Update,“ after the second of two gay men had been found dead in his West Hollywood apartment. The third man who managed to escape, survived a methamphetamine overdose, turned out to be one too many and slippery Ed Buck shown in this KTLA 5 news report cowering in the back seat of a police car after being charged by the Los Angeles County District Attorney with 3 felony counts connected to operating a drug house — which he mysteriously evaded far too long. The deaths are not charged in this complaint. Buck’s bond has been set at $4 million. It’s unlikely any of the prominent state and federal Democrat candidates — Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Adam Schiff, among the recipients of Buck’s generous campaign donations — will reciprocate, helping to spring their deviant donor. 

Buck has given more than $500,000 to a wide array of Democrat groups and candidates, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Gov. Gavin Newsom and L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey — obviously attempting to curry favor with the powerful who are current office holders. The DCCC has reportedly received at least $5,000 from Buck. AZ Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s PAC, Getting Stuff Done, (GSD-PAC) was a recipient of Buck’s generosity, separate from his donations to her campaign, which she ultimately returned. She’s a self-identified “bi-sexual” which no doubt made her even more worthy of his support.

In a motion filed Wednesday, prosecutors set the high bail identifying Buck as a “violent, dangerous sexual predator,” noting he “offered drugs, money and shelter to mainly addicted and homeless men in exchange for participating in sexual fetishes, including a fetish that involved administering dangerous doses of drugs.”

Buck “has no regard for human life,” the motion correctly assessed.

American Thinker has an important update on deviant Ed Buck and his connection to high ranking democrats. Columnist Monica Showalter exposes, The New York Times has been trying to dismiss the arrest of Ed Buck, a Democratic fatcat … as a “small-time Democratic donor,” but the facts on the ground suggest he was a rather big one. And maybe that’s a function of the paper’s desire to protect its masters, the Democrats. They aren’t known as Democratic operatives with bylines for nothing.”


Anti-police coverage dominates, predatory teachers are routine

September 2, 2019

The Hillary-endorsing, newly acquired, failing local newspaper, which gives front page prominence to what it calls “bad officer behavior” and use of “excessive force,” when police are in encounters with an increasingly hostile criminal element, is stupefyingly lax when it comes to sexual predatory teachers in our schools.

Beginning in 2009 Seeing Red AZ began covering predatory teachers, with, “The Endless Parade,” predicting in that year,Nothing wrong with these teachers a good raise in salary couldn’t fix.”

Fast forward to April 2018 where we proved to be ‘right on the money,’ with, “Teachers behaving badly demand 20% raises,” which gives the background on money that has been specifically earmarked for schools through passage of ballot propositions301 in 2000 increasing the state sales tax and 123 in 2016 a grab from the state land trust — guaranteeing more money for education, which apparently is never enough.

A major premise of passing the Arizona Lottery in 1980 was that money from ticket purchases would make its way to schools.

Teachers protest and school districts hold budget overrides and bond elections to “get more money into the classroom” —- eduspeak for bolstering teacher’s salaries. And just like clockwork, signs in support of bond overrides are popping up on Valley roadways, once again.

The Goldwater Institute’s VP for Litigation advised school districts the teacher’s strike and school closures were illegal, depriving more than 840,000 Arizona students of their constitutional right to an education. Still Gov. Ducey capitulated, yielding to their demands. Ducey recently applauded gifting lower in-state tuition rates for illegal aliens.

Meanwhile sexual predators with teaching credentials continue to populate our schools, betraying the trust placed in them by parents as they prey on young students. Yet the unfailingly negative focus of the leftist Arizona Republic newspaper continues to be police officers, who increasingly are in life or death situations where split second decisions must be made.

Some of our early coverage of sexual predator teachers can be seen here.
