Trump should appoint Kris Kobach as Secretary of Homeland Security

November 22, 2016

If, like many political observers these days you find yourself on information overload, you might wonder why a report in The Topeka Capital-Journal has any relevancy or readers of Seeing Red AZ.

Let us remind you.

Remember Arizona’s much heralded law known simply as SB 1070? Although the far-left Arizona Republic was/is unable to write about it without the accompanying descriptive “controversial” label.

Liberal federal courts gutted parts of the law which ultimately made its way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The fallout has been ongoing as we noted just days ago reporting on a lawsuit against AZ AG Mark Brnovich launched by Judicial Watch and former state Senate President Russell Pearce.

Copied in numerous states the language of the Arizona bill was refreshing, using the term “Illegal aliens” and not confusing the meanings of immigrant, migrant and undocumented. Immigrants are here legally.  They have not slithered into the United States using trickery and deceit. They want to become English-speaking Americans taking on our values and history as their own, not recreating the barrios they left behind or bypassing our legal system to impose Sharia law in their communities.

Reports on the weekend meeting between President-elect Donald Trump and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach are heartening to border state Arizonans, who live with the results of non-enforcement of our insecure border imposed by Barack Obama. Taxpayers fund the costly benefits and social services, including providing education, medical care and shouldering the burgeoning impact on our criminal justice system.

It was Kobach, an early supporter and adviser who counseled Trump on implementing “extreme vetting” of those seeking refugee status. He advised candidate Mitt Romney on “self deportation.“

Then Senate President Russell Pearce did a masterful job of shepherding SB 1070 through the Arizona legislature. Constitutional lawyer Kris Kobach, was the architect.

 Kobach built a national reputation for advocacy of state voter identification and registration laws intended to thwart illegal voting.  In 1995, he received his Juries Doctorate from Yale Law School and his doctorate in Political Science from Oxford University. Early in his career he worked for the U.S. Department of Justice under Attorney General John Ashcroft serving as the chief adviser on immigration law and border security. After his fellowship year ended, the Attorney General appointed Kobach as his Counsel. Kobach was a constitutional law professor at the University of Missouri before winning election to secretary of state in Kansas in 2010. These are but highlights, His remarkable bio can be read here.

Kris Kobach will serve America well. Donald Trump can make no more qualified appointment to head the Department of Homeland Security.


Judicial Watch, Russell Pearce sue AZ AG for communications with ACLU

AZ AG Mark Brnovich pays $1.4 million of taxpayer money to ACLU

Seeing Red AZ rarely gives space to press releases, but this stunner is a worthy exception. We see no need to read and regurgitate this important information for you. An enlarged version of the 5-page lawsuit can be seen here.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 14, 2016

Judicial Watch and Russell Pearce Sue Arizona Attorney General for Communications with ACLU

Lawsuit Seeks Records of Settlement of SB 1070 Case Undermining Rule of Law

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch announced today that it and former Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce filed a lawsuit to obtain records of communications between Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office, the ACLU and other groups challenging Arizona immigration enforcement law S.B. 1070. The lawsuit was filed in Maricopa County Superior Court (Judicial Watch and Russell Pearce v. Office of Attorney General Mark Brnovich (No. CV2016-016945).

Judicial Watch and Senator Pearce’s lawsuit was filed on November 9, 2016, after the Attorney General’s office failed to respond to a request for records under Arizona’s Public Records Law. The request sought records of communications between the Attorney General’s Office, the ACLU and other illegal alien advocacy groups that resulted in a settlement of a lawsuit challenging S.B. 1070. The settlement was formalized in an agreement called a “Joint Case Disposition.” The September 20, 2016, request sought records concerning:

Communications, correspondence, and contacts between the Arizona Attorney General’s Office and counsel for plaintiffs in Valle del Sol, et al. v. Whiting, et al., Case No. CV-10-1061-PHX-SRB (D. Ariz.) concerning or relating to the Joint Case Disposition submitted to the court on September 15, 2016. Such records include, but are not limited to, records of discussions resulting in the agreement to submit to the court the Joint Case Disposition.

Under Arizona law the Attorney General’s office was required to respond “promptly” to the records request. After nearly two months, the Attorney General has failed to comply.

The request seeks to shed light on the unusual settlement of the SB 1070 case, including an agreement that the Attorney General would issue an “informal opinion” setting forth his “interpretation” of the meaning of certain provision of SB 1070. The agreement also provided for payment of $1.4 million of taxpayer money to the ACLU and other groups. The U.S. Supreme Court struck down parts of the SB 1070 law in 2012, but other provisions were left untouched, including a provision to allow police officers individuals for proof of immigration status.

“The public has a right to know if the Arizona Attorney General outsourced his work to the ACLU and other illegal alien advocates,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “By stonewalling this request, the Attorney General is thumbing his nose at the rule of law. And we have little doubt that this is all about thwarting any illegal immigration enforcement by a Trump administration.”

“With this settlement, the Attorney General undermined the rule of law,” said Senator Pearce.

“Why is the Attorney General hiding his communications with illegal alien advocates? Why is the Attorney General negotiating the meaning of duly-enacted laws with the ACLU? When did the citizens of Arizona elect the ACLU as Attorney General?”

After filing the Valle del Sol v Whiting case in May 2013, the ACLU conducted a sweeping subpoena “witch hunt” against Judicial Watch and dozens of conservative organizations and individuals that had supported SB 1070. Among those targeted by the ACLU were more than twenty current and former members of the Arizona State Legislature, public interest groups such as the Center for Immigration Studies, NumbersUSA, and the American Legislative Exchange Council, nine police associations, including the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police and the Arizona Highway Patrol Association, the Arizona State Republican Party, the Arizona African American Republican Club, the Arizona Republican Assembly, and three Arizona senior citizens who had no apparent connection to SB 1070.

Judicial Watch and Senator Pearce are represented by William T. Luzader of Luzader Law PLLC in Phoenix, Arizona.

Donald Trump: Proof Americans are fed up with failed policies….

November 9, 2016

…..and Establishment elite of both parties

PRESIDENTDONALDTRUMPPRESIDENTDONALDTRUMPPRESIDENTDONALDTRUMPpRESIENTDONALDTRUMPPRESIDENTDONALDTRUMPPRESIDENTDONALDTRUMPPRESIDENTDONALDTRUMPPRESIDENTDONADLTRUMPPRESIDENTDONALDTRUMPPRESIDENTDONALDTR

In a stunning repudiation of the establishment, DONALD TRUMP has won the presidency following upsets in Key battleground states: FLORIDA, NORTH CAROLINA, OHIO, WISCONSIN, IOWA, SOUTH DAKOTA, WYOMING, TEXAS, KANSAS, NEBRASKA, OKLAHOMA, SOUTH CAROLINA, TENNESSEE and ARKANSAS — where the Clinton’s began their 4-decade political odyssey awash in sleaze.

Trump’s victory, against all odds, stands as proof that the  Silent Majority across America’s broad expanse has found its voice.

270 electoral votes are needed to win the presidency.  At 3:15 a.m. (ET) Wednesday,  Hillary Clinton had 218. Donald Trump was soaring ahead with 276. No concession speech from scandal-plagued Hillary.

In local news Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a Trump loyalist and the county’s longest serving sheriff, lost to Paul Penzone, a problematic Democrat. Penzone, a repeat candidate was aided this time by open borders globalist and multi-billionaire George Soros. Attempting to reconfigure law enforcement in his liberal image, Soros has been funneling $ millions into law enforcement campaigns including the Maricopa County attorney’s race as well as in other parts of the United States.  Hispanic “volunteers” were bused into Phoenix from around the nation in the weeks preceding Election Day. Their task was to knock on thousands of doors in predominately Hispanic neighborhoods to motivate residents and those they registered for the first time to oust popular Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The open borders fans at the leftist Arizona Republic, have led the daily assault on Sheriff Arpaio. Most reprehensible, Phil Boas in charge of editorial content for the fishwrap, is Arpaio’s son-in-law.

FBI Dir. Comey caves again — Sunday before election

November 7, 2016

 ….Nothing new here, folks, move on, move on

Released on the Sunday afternoon preceding Election Day, FBI Director James Comey’s terse letter to congress, contains this preposterous sentence: 

“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”

GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s cogent response delivered to a crowd of thousands in the Detroit suburb of Sterling Heights, Michigan after receiving the news:

‘You can’t review 650,000 new emails in eight days! You can’t do it, folks!’

Hillary Clinton should be indicted, not elected

November 3, 2016

What will it take for the Arizona Republic to withdraw its endorsement?

With less than a week before Election Day, Hillary Clinton’s scandals have grown at breakneck speed. Extending past the private mail server located in her basement which compromised national security and the money-making machine and pay for play scheme, selling access to then-Secretary of State Clinton —  inextricably entangled with the Clinton Foundation. We’ve read with disgust how Democrat strategist and interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile acknowledged in a now disclosed email to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, “From time to time I get the (townhall/debate) questions in advance.” Guess who she passes them along to? 

As the walls began closing in, Hillary Clinton’s closest aides and advisers were given immunity.

National Review’s Andrew C. McCarthy writes, “The Clinton E-mails Are Critical to the Clinton Foundation influence peddling Investigation.”

All of this deceit leads to at the highest levels. The latest disclosures involve recordings detailing that FBI agents felt they had sufficient evidence to pursue an indictment of Hillary Clinton, but were shut down by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s Department of Justice. 

Yes, the same Loretta Lynch who had a private jet-board meeting with Bill Clinton on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport — ostensibly to discuss Bill’s golf game and grandchildren — as Hillary’s mounting legal problems were worsening. Despite reaching political heights, the self identified po’ boy from Hope, Arkansas still function as a power obsessed hick.

Even Barack Obama is weighing in on the FBI‘s investigation, as he watches his ‘third term’ drop like a rock, declaring, “We don’t operate on innuendo, incomplete information or leaks.” Democrats Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, great fans of the FBI Director just last month, are now piling on James Comey for reopening the investigation. The FBI Director’s term is ten years long for a reason.

Bypassing mere politics by a mile, with raw criminality front and center, the likelihood of a Clinton indictment is worth betting on.


FBI reopening case against Hillary Clinton

October 28, 2016

This morning, FBI Director James Comey informed congress that his agency is reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server, the use of which threatened the national security of the United States.

In  July Comey shockingly announced that despite Clinton’s obvious deception, he would not recommend charges against her for mishandling classified information on her private email server while she was Secretary of State. WikiLeaks information has made that stance impossible to defend.

FBI Director James Comey’s Oct.28, 2016 letter to congress can be read HERE.


Why is open borders fan Soros backing Paul Penzone & Diego Rodriguez?

October 24, 2016

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has a multi-billionaire opponent shoveling copious sums of cash into the effort to defeat him in his reelection bid. Oddly, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery has the same opponent.

Democrat Paul Penzone, the tough dude who roughed up his former estranged wife in a fit of temper several years ago, isn’t the affluent one. It’s his far leftist benefactor, George Soros, a committed open borders proponent who is the guy with the big bucks.  Soros has bankrolled the ‘Maricopa Strong’ Political Action Committee to the tune of $300,000. The group’s been cranking out dishonest mailers timed to land in Valley mailboxes to coincide with early ballots.

For Paul Penzone, a former Phoenix police officer to have caught the attention of  socialist global player and radical megalomaniac George Soros, raises more questions than there are answers. Back in 2011, Human Events polled its readers and  listed theTop 10 Reasons George Soros Is Dangerous,” referring to him as “the single most destructive leftist demagogue in the country.” Discover the Networks has a Guide to Soros’ Networks. Be sure to acquaint yourself with the header over each section of bullet points, for an insight into what his actual agenda is

The local newspaper, long bonded to unrestrained illegal alien crossings on Arizona’s sieve-like southern border has endorsed Penzone over Arpaio. It plays down the unseemly involvement of George Soros, though noting that he was listed as the sole contributor to the high dollar PAC. Penzone denies coordinating with Soros, which would be illegal. The mystery is how Penzone who lost to Arpaio in 2012, caught the attention of the unsavory tycoon with a penchant for destroying America on every level.

In the race for Maricopa County Attorney, incumbent Bill Montgomery, is being challenged by an unknown Democrat also funded by George Soros. Phoenix attorney Diego Rodriguez says he represents change.

The change he represents is demonstrated solely by Soros’ involvement in prosecutor’s races throughout the country, as he promotes laxer criminal prosecution.

Among the myriad groups funded by Soros is Black Lives Matter, which engages in flagrant destruction, torching of businesses and cars, including police vehicles and dangerously blocking main thoroughfares impeding the passage of emergency vehicles.  Most importantly, BLM has incited violence against police. Officers have been ambushed and slaughtered by its cowardly members.

If elected, we can only imagine how Paul Penzone and Diego Rodriguez would express their gratitude for George Soros’ generosity.
