AZ Republicans beware: Another McCain is in the wings

January 26, 2023

Biden supporter Cindy McCain, becomes major liability

Last November we posted an odd Thanksgiving greeting from James Hensley McCain, who never previously thought to wish us well. Greeting us as “Dear Friends,” his father’s slippery salutation to those of us who were anything but, outs Jimmy McCain as a fellow with political aspirations as we noted in, “Another McCain seeking a political perch? Spare us.”

He wrote, “As our family prepares to celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, I wanted to take the time to thank you for supporting my Dad through the years. As we continue my Dad’s fight to advance freedom, prosperity, security and human dignity for the benefit of all, we would be grateful to have you join our efforts.”

He was assuming a lot. Conservatives were never fans of the devious John McCain who was more comfortable with democrats Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton while shunning conservative principles opting out of AZ GOP Statutory meetings attended by most Republican office holders. When ”Dad” finally attended a state meeting with Jeff Flake who opted out of running for reelection when polling showed him with an 18% approval rating in his home state, Dad and Flake were greeted by turned backs, boos, and walk outs, based on his ignoring the backbone of the party and pushing his democrat and Republicrat Gang of Eight pro-amnesty for illegal aliens. John McCain was also censured as was Cindy for her allegiance to Joe Biden…who rewarded her with an ambassadorship to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture. Cindy and her daughter (known on this site as Mega) and Flake, all endorsed Biden. The McCain’s unconcealed rage directed at President Trump is based in their jealous ire that businessman Trump won the presidency, the office John McCain regarded as his due, though the nation’s top job forever eluded him.  For his Biden allegiance, Flake was gifted with an appropriate ambassadorship to Turkey.

Now James (Jimmy) Hensley McCain is back in greeting mode, this time wishing us a late Happy New Year, as he once again shares memories of his dad. He’s obviously gearing up for an announcement of his own, though he’s never shown any interest in the Arizona Republican Party. Jimmy’s also hustling for donations to the McCain Institute. It’s a sure bet that Jimmy has got a case of the runs, which will be characterized as a tribute to his dad.

This 2008 New Republic article, “Made Man: How Cindy Hensley invented John McCain,” provides the background of how John McCain’s well-connected second wife launched John McCain’s political career. There’s little doubt she is now advising her son James Hensley McCain in carrying on the tradition.

TX Gov. Greg Abbott takes action re: illegals

December 19, 2022

Abbott declares “Texas remains vigilant in our response to Biden’s border crisis.”

This is Gov. Abbott’s recent letter to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton regarding what he appropriately refers to as a “crisis” — exacerbated by the end of Title 42 just days away. Both Abbott and Paxton are Republicans. Under Title 42, Border Patrol agents could expel illegals seeking amnesty without a formal hearing. Over 1.7 million illegal aliens have been expelled under Title 42 since it took effect in March 2020 during the height of the COVID pandemic, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data.

Gov. Abbott’s letter was sent just one day after a huge crossing of illegal aliens into El Paso, Texas. During this massive influx, over 1,000 aliens illegally entered the U.S. in a well-organized caravan. “I invoked the Invasion Clauses of the U.S. & Texas Constitutions to fully authorize Texas to take unprecedented measures to defend our state against an invasion,” Gov. Abbott wrote. “I’m using that constitutional authority, & other authorization & Executive Orders to keep our state & country safe.”

Texas officials have criticized the Biden administration for its unwillingness to enforce immigration law at the southern border and have attempted to act independently of Washington to stem the tide of illegals unlawfully entering the United States. Gov. Abbott formally declared an “invasion” in November and invoked constitutional powers to control the indefensible situation.

Arizona’s Gov. Doug Ducey, mentored by open borders proponent John McCain, a driving force in the failed bipartisan Gang of Eight pushing “immigration reform,“ has been a disappointment. A year after McCain’s death Ducey was still mourning him, putting out a press release titled, Governor Ducey: “John McCain’s Legacy Endures”

The crisis on Arizona’s border will only worsen with a democrat at the helm. 


Biden mistakenly picks fight with Arizona

December 16, 2022

Delaware leftist Joe Biden thinks fellow political opportunist and carpetbagger, John McCain, was representative of Arizona

Today we take our readers directly to the Washington Examiner topped by a headline that blasts: “Biden DOJ sues Arizona over border wall installed on federal forest land.” Though stunning, it is not intended to be provocative. Homeland Security Reporter Anna Giaritelli deals in facts.

Slippery and brash, when former POW John McCain returned from Vietnam, he left his wife and family and married heiress Cindy Lou Hensley, 18 years his junior. With her powerful father’s connections to open doors for his new son-in-law, McCain won a seat in Congress just one year after moving to Arizona. She later became the chairman of her family’s business, Hensley Beverage Company, one of the largest Anheuser-Busch distributors in the nation.

After McCain’s death, Cindy ditched the Republican Party and campaigned for Joe Biden, who repaid her as a Permanent Representative of the U.S. Mission to the UN Agencies in Rome on November 5, 2021 — bestowing an Ambassadorship upon her. Cindy Lou, who holds herself in higher esteem than anyone else does, also signed on with UTA, a Hollywood-based talent agency.

Cindy was previously an Arizona junior rodeo queen, enhancing her credentials in the state. John had none, though he worked at faking them. The McCain family despised Pres. Donald Trump who attained what always eluded John — the presidency of the United States. The jealousy driven animus ran so deep, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were purposely excluded from McCain’s funeral, although the Obama’s were given preferential treatment and Barack Obama, who actually beat McCain in the race for the presidency, gave a eulogy. Irascible to the end, John McCain worked on the “guest list.”


Another McCain seeking a political perch? Spare us

November 22, 2022

When your name is incendiary and you have political aspirations, it becomes imperative that nothing is left to chance to control the damage before tossing your hat into the ring. That would be the only reason James “Jimmy” Hensley McCain is sending out Thanksgiving wishes…a new cordiality, in which he has never previously engaged. His emailed missive, given cover under the auspices of the McCain Institute Foundation, also includes a solicitation for funds with instructions “to consult your tax advisor for specific tax advice.”

Dear Friends,

As our family prepares to celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, I wanted to take the time to thank you for supporting my Dad through the years. As we continue my Dad’s fight to advance freedom, prosperity, security and human dignity for the benefit of all, we would be grateful to have you join our efforts.

One of Dad’s favorite holidays was always Thanksgiving. Some of my best memories are him on the deck, frying turkeys and enjoying the day with family and friends. From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you have a wonderful day.

Best wishes,

(Signature)

James H. McCain

Missing Michelle Malkin already

October 30, 2022

We all gain our inspiration from admired sources. The nine Muses, daughters of ancient Greeks Zeus and Mnemosyne, are credited as personifications of the arts, writing and knowledge. A more recent inspiration was born in Pennsylvania to Filipino legal immigrant parents — a doctor and a teacher. Michelle Malkin, a conservative columnist and blogger, author of seven books, and a frequent Fox News contributor until she was deemed too conservative for the network widely regarded as conservative. She finally quit, joining Newsmax TV. American Thinker’s Peter Barry Chowka’s July 20, 2020 report was headlined, “Michelle Malkin beaten by BLM thugs and prevented from speaking at Denver pro-police rally.”

Never one to mince words, Malkin has been a reliable voice for conservatism. In 2019, she took heat for criticizing the “ghost” of the late Sen. John McCain stating: “Congress has repeatedly mandated a nationwide visa entry-exit system to track legal short-term visa holders. But one has yet to be built—even in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which were perpetrated in part by several illegal alien visa overstayers. E-verify has been stalled. Sanctuary cities metastasized. And BOTH parties are to blame – yeah I’m looking at you, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, the Bush family, Mitt Romney and the ghost of John McCain.”

Arizona conservatives knew McCain as a marginal man and pro-illegal alien zealot who arrogantly created his own funeral “guest list” pointedly omitting President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, though Barack Obama was tapped to give a eulogy. McCain apparently reached untouchable sainthood status following three funerals in Phoenix, Arizona, Washington, DC, and Annapolis, Maryland.

CNS News delivers the disappointing news that Michelle Malkin is calling it quits — hopefully just for a breather. Read her commentary, Michelle Malkin Signs Off: ‘An Ending, but Not the End.’

To remember what we will be missing, read her exceptional tribute to conservative Tom Tancredo, a former member of congress from her home state of Colorado, correctly identified by Malkin “as one of the three modern leaders standing as the pillars of the America First movement: Pat Buchanan, Tom Tancredo and Donald Trump.”


Fmr. McCain aide Max Fose likens leftist Sen. Mark Kelly to McCain

July 18, 2022

Finally…the left got something right

Seeing Red AZ has never attempted to conceal its abhorrence of former Sen. John McCain, whose political duplicity was renowned. His last official vote — which Speaker Mitch McConnell held up to allow the then-ailing McCain to cast the deciding vote — was a stunning case in point, as McCain voted with the united democrats — much to the mystified dismay of his GOP colleagues — on what was known as the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare. Watch the 19-second video here:

https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2017/07/28/19-seconds-mccain-vote-nr.cnn

Attempting to explain his political treachery in heading up Republicans for Kelly, supporting the deceptive Mark Kelly, McCain-connected Max Fose answered the question with a now trendy, tricky response that attempts to make the questioned person agree, by ending the question with “right?” “You don’t see Mark Kelly throwing bombs across the aisle, right?”

Wrong.

Soros-funded Kelly is duplicity run amok. His strong financial ties to Communist Chinese tech giant Tencent are a driving force of the commercial space exploration venture he co-founded. Tencent, is one of the world’s largest internet enterprises and owns the Chinese social media platform WeChat. The text platform has more than a billion users and is suspected of monitoring the activity of many of them inside and outside of China, as detailed in this 2020 Real Clear Politics report. The Washington Free Beacon exposes Kelly’s early and lucrative ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

Married to former AZ congresswoman Gabby Giffords, who is Jewish,  Mark Kelly gleefully poses with anti-Semite U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). Omar has stated her belief that America should be dismantled, opining it is “based in a system of oppression.” She believes Israel has no right to exist.

Mark Kelly should not represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate. Seeing Red AZ endorses Jim Lamon, a successful businessman and job creator, who prioritizes addressing the border crisis. Jim Lamon’s list of conservative elected officials, activists and law enforcement endorsements is impressive. These are the boots-on-the-ground men and women who understand the need for retaking control of our border that has been a haven for illegals and criminal activity. Kelly, an anti-Second Amendment gun confiscator, is unfazed by the widespread criminality.

The Washington Times reported DHS encountered a record 2 million illegal aliens on our southern border in 2021 alone.


Life is a gift: A concept AZ US Dist. Judge Rayes doesn’t comprehend

July 13, 2022

Though you’ve likely never heard his name, Douglas Leroy Rayes, a U.S. district judge for the District of Arizona, can make decisions that have a profound impact on Arizona residents.

On Monday, he blocked a 2021 Arizona law recognizing the personhood of a fetus from the moment of fertilization, siding with the abortion industry which determined the measure “was too vague and exposed them to prosecution.”

The Center for Reproductive Rights, which asserts it “fights for the fundamental human rights of all people in the U.S. and across the globe,” neglects to include preborn human babies as it makes fundraising its mission, highlighting donors and “major gifts,” using death as a fundraising mechanism.

The Arizona Attorney General’s office recently prevailed in disallowing abortions based on the sex or race of the child. The office countered that the provision, which says state law must be interpreted to grant fertilized eggs, embryos and fetuses the same “rights, privileges and immunities available to other persons,” was not intended to create any new abortion-related crime.

U.S. District Judge Douglas Rayes, an Obama appointee, was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in 2014 by a 77 to 19 vote — with 4 senators not voting. Republicrats John McCain and Jeff Flake both voted for this democrat, who replaced Republican Judge Frederick Martone, then assuming senior status.

During the hearing, Rayes expressed concern about a state policy that the provision’s effects be interpreted case by case in court, after abortionists voiced fears they could be prosecuted for child endangerment or other crimes.

In his ruling, Rayes, engaging in classic double-talk, wrote that his motion blocking the law was not just about abortion. “It is about giving people fair notice of what the law means so that they know in advance how to comply.”

The case is one of many disputes over state abortion laws after the U.S. Supreme Court sent the matter back to the individual states, sensibly removing it from under the auspices of the federal government.

Arizona passed the personhood law in April 2021. Abortion providers sued to block it last August, fallaciously arguing that it was unconstitutionally vague because it did not make clear what conduct, if any, it would prohibit. In March, Arizona passed a law banning most abortions after 15 weeks. That measure is set to take effect in September.


In Bideneese, inanimate guns, not villains, are the villains

June 2, 2022

In the aftermath of recent violent attacks at schools, churches and shopping marts, — worsened by a shooting at a Tulsa medical center today — a novel new defense is being used to bankrupt gun manufacturers. Don’t for a minute be lulled into thinking this is an isolated or unexpected instance. There is a new scheme afoot the intent of which is to rid law-abiding Americans of their Constitutional right to own firearms.

This  recent New York Post report notes that a woman wounded in last month’s mass shooting on a New York City subway filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the maker of the handgun used in the attack and its parent company, accusing the firearm manufacturer of “reckless disregard for human life.”

There is no longer a human villain at the other end of the gun used in criminal activity. Now the very act of possessing a firearm is egregious enough. In 2005, then Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon, a far-left democrat with a penchant for worldwide, public-financed travel with his then-girlfriend, envisioned a gun buy-back to melt down four tons of weapons and build a sculpture more than 24-feet tall.” Somehow that escaped the notice of the NRA, which shockingly endorsed him in 2007. They also had John McCain, a longtime proponent of “closing gun-show loopholes,“ as the featured speaker when the NRA hosted its convention in Phoenix. Even the best organizations occasionally screw up.

In llene Steur’s lawsuit, filed in federal court in Brooklyn, she claimed Glock has “endangered the public health and safety” by the marketing, distribution and sales of its guns.  In February, the families of nine victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting reached a $73 million settlement in a lawsuit against Remington, the maker of the rifle used in that horrific attack. Remington, one of the nation’s oldest gun makers founded in 1816, filed for bankruptcy for a second time in 2020 and its assets were later sold off to several companies. The manufacturer was overwhelmed by lawsuits and retail sales restrictions following the school shooting. The depraved murderer and his family didn’t have the deep pockets of the manufacturer.

The grotesque murders are horrific. Yet this circuitous route of disarming law-abiding citizens prevents them from protecting themselves and their families. John Hinckley, who attempted to assassinate Pres. Ronald Reagan and others in his entourage, has been unconditionally released by U.S. District Court Judge Paul L. Friedman, a Clinton appointee. Yes…it’s been 44 years. This release was unwarranted.


AZ Gov. Ducey follows TX Gov. Greg Abbott busing illegals to D.C.

May 14, 2022

Abbott has announced Texas brought 922 illegals to the nation’s capital in 35 buses. Will Ducey follow that example?

In a move that would be certain to inflame his open-border mentor Señor Juan McAmnesty, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has begun busing illegal alien invaders to Washington, D.C.

Following Gov. Greg Abbott’s successful plan, which has delighted Texans and agitated D.C. insiders, unable to conceive of the Southwestern border calamity to which they have turned a blind eye, impacting their elite environs.

It’s known as retaliation.

Just prior to his more recent follow-the-leader imitation, Ducey bizarrely called on leftist tech giants to aid in stopping drug and human exploitation crimes, beginning his letter with the words, “It’s no secret our southern border is a mess.”

No kidding.

As governor of Arizona, a border state seriously impacted by illegal invaders who suffer no consequences for their actions, Ducey is finally showing concern about the crisis under which Arizona’s citizens have long endured and been forced to finance with our tax dollars.

If these numbers from FAIR (Federation for American Immigration Reform) detailing the Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on the United States seem shocking, bear in mind they are from 2017. The Biden administration has irreparably opened the floodgates since then, appointing Alejandro Mayorkas, an immigrant, (probably illegal) from Communist Cuba, as Homeland Security Secretary, acclaimed as the first Latino in that position, by a president who is driven by “Firsts.”

Ducey, who is unable to run again due to term limits, has something up his sleeve. The question is, “What?”


AZ AG Brnovich’s senate candidacy bashed by Pres. Trump

April 19, 2022

Blistering message decimates Brnovich’s aspirations

To say POTUS 45, Donald J. Trump, is not a fan of U.S. Senate candidate Mark Brnovich would be the height of understatement. Brnovich, the current AZ Attorney General, is term limited and is looking for a new political perch.

He’d be wise to have a backup plan, since former President Trump has sent out a scathing message that does irreparable damage to the McCain endorsing sycophant. (Brief video).

Brnovich, recently sporting a Rasputin-like mass of facial hair, appears to be trying to conceal his identity, which is beyond strange for a candidate.

Seeing Red AZ endorses conservative veteran and businessman Jim Lamon in the multi-candidate Republican August 22, 2022 primary. His notable law enforcement endorsements, among others, speak volumes as the Biden administration has torn down the border wall and is flooding the United States with “more than 1.5 million” illegal aliens, according to this report in the Washington Examiner.
