Prisons release felons as Dem-led states close gun shops

April 1, 2020

Law abiding citizens, many newly jobless and being ordered to self quarantine, are now in even greater peril as the Coronavirus incongruously takes its toll on their safety and that of their families by leaving them vulnerable to criminals.

States with Democrat governors from California to New York are releasing from prison felons charged with violent crimes, claiming the close conditions are breeding grounds for the scourge. At the same time, the pandemic is being used by Second Amendment restrictionists to deem gun shops “non-essential” and in need of being closed.

The unprecedented national quarantine has also bizarrely presented a fertile opportunity for those intent on imposing the leftist’s “Criminal Justice Reform” mandates. Socialist billionaire George Soros has been funneling money to far-left candidates in an effort to overhaul the U.S. Justice System — influencing races for elected District Attorneys (in Arizona they are known as County Attorneys) and county sheriffs. 

One of Soros’ PACs poured $millions into defeating Sheriff Joe Arpaio and installing Democrat Paul Penzone as Maricopa County Sheriff, aided by the left-wing Arizona Republic.  He tried the same tactic against then-Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, who not only won reelection, but was later appointed to the state Supreme Court.

On Friday, a lawsuit was filed in the Central District Court of California challenging the notion that gun dealers were non-essential businesses and must be shut down. Among the plaintiffs questioning the illogical restrictions was the National Rifle Association of America (NRA). Read the legal challenge here.

Dem Gillum found with meth, “gay escort,” in hotel room

March 15, 2020

Crystal meth possession not worthy of arrest, though Gillum apologizes for “distraction”

Despite being married and the father of three, Andrew Gillum, the former mayor of Tallahassee and former Democrat Florida gubernatorial candidate has other “distractions.”

Gillum,40, who has been working as a CNN commentator since losing to Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, was found vomiting, inebriated and incoherent in an exclusive South Beach Hotel room with Travis Dyson,30, an openly gay male escort and “porn star performer.” Dyson, using a pseudonym, has a profile on the RentMen website, Florida’s Local10 reported Friday.

Dyson was transported to a hospital following a suspected drug overdose. A third man, Aldo Mejias,56, called police and fire rescue to the hotel just after midnight.

Officers filed this redacted report* stating they found three baggies containing crystal meth on both the bed and floor of the hotel room. Gillum, frequently compared to Barack Obama, issued this statement: “I apologize to the people of Florida for the distraction this has caused our movement.”

Following the “distraction,” Gillum, who had previously paid $thousands in fines to settle a case charging him with ethics violations, was released and allowed to return home with no arrest made — though crystal meth is an illegal, highly addictive narcotic.

Imagine that being the case if he’d been a Republican.

Reckless Schumer threatens Supreme Court Justices

March 5, 2020

Addressing a gathering of abortion supporters outside the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday, an out-of-control Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) issued threats against the two most recently appointed justices. The court is hearing arguments in a challenge by a Louisiana abortion clinic to a state law passed in 2014 requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges to a hospital within 30 miles of their facilities.

Democrat Schumer’s wild rant began with these intimidating words: “I want to tell you, [Neil] Gorsuch, I want to tell you, [Brett] Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

In this unusual written comment, Chief Justice John Roberts responded, “Statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous.” Justice Roberts added, “All members of the Court will continue do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter.”         

Schumer, a U.S. Senator with a Harvard law degree — though he never practiced law, opting instead for a political career — would be expected to have more decorum, but that attribute is in short supply among repressive* Democrats these days. They are tormented by the realization that their leading presidential candidates are Marxists or suffering from dementia. Immensely popular President Donald Trump, whom they failed to remove, is delivering on his promises including a growing economy, historically high employment, superb judicial appointments to the federal and Supreme Court benches. Acquaint yourself with his unparalleled list of accomplishments here.

Obviously lacking a sense of decorum and propriety, Schumer has long been described as an “incorrigible publicity hound.” Former Sen. Bob Dole once quipped that “the most dangerous place in Washington is between Charles Schumer and a television camera.” 

In the case of his despicable behavior at the Supreme Court, the least he deserves is censure.

* SRAZ is waging a campaign against the word “progressive,“ which liberals decided to use to make them appear forward thinking. They are not forward thinking, but are regressive on nearly every level. When conservatives use the word, “progressive,” they are playing directly into the hard left’s hands and doing their bidding. Regressive is a more appropriate description.


AZ AG Brnovich wins stay on ballot harvesting law

February 12, 2020

Voter fraud at issue

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has granted Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s motion to stay the Court’s mandate in the DNC v. Hobbs case. The Feb. 11, 2020 order ensures Arizona’s ban on ballot harvesting and the law regarding out-of-precinct voting will remain in place until the U.S. Supreme Court has a chance to hear the appeal of the case.

“Our job is to defend the law and we’re not going to let out-of-state special interests systematically dismantle our election integrity safeguards,” said Attorney General Mark Brnovich. “Arizonans should determine what common sense voter fraud laws are appropriate for our state.”

The court order can be read here.

Democrats refer to curtailment of the nefarious scheme known as ballot harvesting as, “voter suppression.” Election integrity is not on the left’s radar.

The Federalist’s Eric Eggers addresses the issue in this illuminating commentary,How Ballot-Harvesting Became The New Way To Steal An Election,” which reveals the widespread and deceptive practices associated with ballot harvesting.

Seeing Red AZ has exposed this shady practice and the troubling ramifications, eroding citizen confidence in election integrity since 2012. This is a sampling:

Oct. 19, 2016: 2016 Election rigged? Of course it’s rigged

March 10, 2016: AZ Gov. Ducey signs ballot harvesting / felony bill

Feb. 9, 2016: AZ GOP Chair Robert Graham’s ballot harvesting amnesia (now former chair)

Aug. 28, 2015: Alarming! 100%+ voter registration rates

Oct. 28, 2014: Democrats engage in voter fraud, ‘ballot harvesting’

Aug. 4, 2014: Ballot harvesting alive and well in AZ despite law

March 13, 2012:  Voter fraud? “We’re not the police


Al-Qaeda leader captured: Living in Phoenix

February 3, 2020

According to this January 31, 2020 press release issued by the U.S. Department of Justice, Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri, 42, the leader of Al-Qaeda terrorists in Al-Fallujah, Iraq has been arrested in Phoenix in connection with proceedings to extradite him to the Republic of Iraq.  He is wanted to stand trial in Iraq on two charges of premeditated murder of police officers committed in 2006 in Al-Fallujah. Ahmed Al-Nouri planned and implemented murderous schemes targeting Iraqi police.

The now unsealed complaint can be read here.

The troubling aspect is that this Al-Qaeda terrorist leader was located living in Phoenix. Since the murders were committed in 2006, he could have been living here undetected for well over a dozen years. It’s doubtful he has no like-thinking comrades here.

In 2011 SRAZ wrote, Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns.”* It is substantiated by a shocking photograph of the now dead Yasser Arafat — the father of modern terrorism — and members of RUP, the La Raza Unida party, meeting in Beirut, Lebanon in 1980, providing photo evidence of the longstanding association between Mexico and radical elements of American hating middle-easterners. In recent years, immigration from the Middle East to Mexico has burgeoned, estimated at 1.1 million in 2018.

President Trump acknowledged the presence of Middle Easterners embedded among the caravans from Mexico breaching our sovereign border.

Nefarious ballot harvesting OK’d by 9th Circus Court

January 28, 2020

This reasonable law §16-1005 maintaining the integrity of voter’s ballots was passed by the Arizona legislature in 2016 and signed by Gov. Doug Ducey. The law, protecting against voter fraud, makes the practice of knowingly collecting voted or unvoted ballots from another person a Class 6 Felony.

Specific exemptions are written into the law, allowing family members, a person residing in the same household as the voter, caregivers, postal workers or elections officials to collect early ballots from a voter.

Calling voting “a key pillar of our democracy,” the governor noted this law will ensure a chain of custody between the voter and the ballot box. “We join 18 other states in this common sense approach to maintaining the integrity of our elections.” SRAZ has written about ballot harvesting previously, beginning in 2012.

Arizona’s law ensuring election integrity has now been reversed by the far-left, overly large and frequently overturned Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on the flimsiest and most insulting of reasons: That it negatively and disproportionately impacted minority or impoverished voters.

“Arizona’s policy of wholly discarding, rather than counting or partially counting, out-of-precinct ballots, and criminalization of the collection of another person’s ballot, have a discriminatory impact on American Indian, Hispanic, and African American voters in Arizona,” Judge William Fletcher, a Bill Clinton appointee, wrote.

The decision was reported in the Arizona Republic, which makes no attempt to impartially deliver the news, using these inflammatory words: “Republicans who control the legislature enacted the policy with the intent of suppressing turnout from voters of minority groups.”

The state will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, said Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, a defendant in the lawsuit along with the Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.

“It’s surprising the Ninth Circuit took the unusual step of overruling its own decision from 2018,” Brnovich said. “I have a duty to defend the law. Our office will appeal to the Supreme Court and continue to protect the integrity of our elections.”

The court’s ruling can be read here.

The judges on the en banc panel are:

Sidney R. Thomas, Chief Judge (appointed by Bill Clinton)

Diarmuid F.O’Scannlain (appointed by Ronald Reagan)

William A. Fletcher (appointed by Bill Clinton)

Marsha S. Berzon (appointed by Bill Clinton)

Pres. Trump: A historic voice for life

January 24, 2020

Donald Trump will be the first sitting president to personally address the annual March for Life in the event’s 47-year history. He is scheduled to speak at 12pm (ET).

The national Washington, D.C. rally draws tens of thousands of pro-life supporters yearly. Today, January 24, 2020 they converge on the National Mall and march on Capitol Hill. Additional rallies are being held across the United States, marking the anniversary of the notorious Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision which legalized abortion and allows elective late-term abortions. 

This year’s theme is, “Life Empowers: Pro-life is pro-woman.”

Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life, called President Trump and his administration “consistent champions” of the March for Life movement, citing his appointment of conservative judges, efforts to cut taxpayer funding for abortions, and his calls for an end to late-term abortions.

With new technology and medical advances allowing life-saving procedures to be performed in-utero, Americans realize these are babies, and not disposable blobs of cells. Mayo Clinic provides an overview of fetal surgery procedures that treat potentially disastrous birth defects.

A January 2020 Gallup polling survey shows 58% of Americans say they are dissatisfied with the nation’s policies on abortion, desiring stricter laws, marking a seven-percentage-point increase from one year ago and a new high in Gallup’s trend. On the flip side, 32% are now satisfied, a new low.
