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.

Bumbling Biden calls Fox WH correspondent Peter Doocy a “Stupid SOB”

January 25, 2022

Dems and RINOs don’t like having their “wisdom” questioned

Who knew that being verbally assaulted by the president of the United States would be among the perils of doing your job properly?

And back in 2017, Peter Doocy was also slammed by Sen. John McCain, who asked him “Why would you ask such a dumb question?” to a perfectly legitimate one that McCain didn’t want to answer.

Gov. Ducey suddenly motivated to education action 

January 5, 2022

The rumor mill has been rife with talk of term-limited Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey having an itch to relocate to D.C. in some political capacity. As we noted on Dec. 26, 2020, the former ice cream tycoon and his wife sold their gated 11,412 sq. ft. Paradise Valley golf course fairway mansion and 1,200 sq. ft. guest house situated on 2.14 acres, at a discounted rate of $8,150,000, obviously in preparation for his next adventure. His term ends on January 1, 2023, and he’s readying for another gig.

Speculation regarding lame-duck AZ Gov. Doug Ducey’s future plans have been running the gamut, though his national profile is not in the realm of Governors Ron DeSantis (FL) or Greg Abbott (TX).

He’s been quiet of late, not noticeably rocking the political boat except for his needless expansion of the Arizona Supreme Court, obviously thinking two of his friends, neither of whom had tried a case in years, would look sharp in black. There was also that newsworthy snub of then-President Trump, calling Ducey with his distinctive “Hail to the Chief” ring tone and Ducey pointedly ignoring it in front of Trump-disdaining reporters, who made sure it got the attention Ducey clearly desired.  A longtime McCain ally, initially employed by Cindy Hensley McCain at her Hensley Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship when he first arrived in Arizona to attend ASU, their friendship blossomed to the point that John McCain encouraged the then-ice cream mogul Ducey to run for governor.

Ducey’s political future is definitely on his mind as he issued this bullet-pointed January 4, 2022 News Release announcing he was taking “preemptive action to ensure in-person learning remains an option for all Arizona families and students, consistent with guidance from public health experts.” Ducey refers to it as creating an “Open for Learning Recovery Benefit Program.”

Demanding students be kept in class has not exactly been a priority for Ducey, who coddled the striking “#Reds For Ed” teachers who abandoned, for over two weeks, over 840,000 statewide students, as they followed then-24-year-old Noah Karvelis, an eager Socialist Labor Party member and 2016 AZ Bernie Sanders campaign coordinator, demanding 20% pay hikes for their part-time jobs…do you get the entire summer off? Ducey hung tough for a brief moment and then capitulated to the union members demands, emboldening them to get behind Marxist Proposition 208, a ballot measure that provides a perpetually increasing money stream, under the guise of “tax the rich,” a fallacious democrat advanced scheme.

Ducey didn’t have the fortitude exhibited by Pres. Ronald Reagan in 1981 when the PATCO Union Air Traffic Control workers threatened to walk off the job, potentially shutting down U.S. air travel. Reagan gave them a deadline and fired those who refused to comply. Supervisors and management filled in until new replacements were able to take over the reins. There were no disruptions. 

John McCain: Still lives and breathes

November 29, 2021

McCabre visage bizarrely nurtured by dying newspaper

Though he had three funerals — one in Phoenix, one in D.C. and anther, including a 2018 burial in Arlington, Virginia — if you happen upon a copy of the failing,* Arizona Republic newspaper, still swooning over the man who defined the pejorative term RINO (Republican In Name Only), you’d swear John McCain is still inhaling oxygen.

When his former chief of staff and later AZ Attorney General, Grant Woods, died in November, there was nearly as much written about McCain as Woods. They were birds of a feather who each used the AZ GOP to further their ambitions, then blatantly switching over to the leftist camp which actually exemplified their political ideals. Woods actually reregistered as a democrat. Cindy McCain, a Biden endorser, who was rewarded with a U.N. ambassadorship, eulogized Woods at the service that rated ongoing full, front-page coverage for days.

Sunday’s edition of the radical Trump-hating, Hillary-endorsing newspaper headlined, “A PLAN TO CHANGE REALITY.” It is a multi-page rehash of the 2020 election recount, distrusted by Republicans statewide, who are relentlessly denigrated by the leftwing newspaper. The caption accompanying an oversize, and let’s face it…creepy, full color photo of smiling John and Cindy McCain — him in a “thumbs-up” pose — reads “Donald Trump’s attacks against the late U.S. Senator John McCain, cost Trump support in Arizona.”

The only voters who believe that rubbish attempting to pass as fact-based news are the pathetically ill-informed, otherwise known as subscribers to the Gannett owned dying local newspaper, whose stock continues to plummet.

McCain, a key component in Steele dossier, still given cover

November 5, 2021

Vengeful, twice failed presidential candidate McCain was instrumental in discredited report intended to damage Trump’s 2016 campaign

The news is newly rife with updated reports about the Steele dossier promulgated by Christopher Steele, a British spy maliciously linking then-presidential candidate Donald Trump to Russian operatives.

The discredited so-called “dossier,” has the ring of an espionage novel worthy of a John le Carre thriller best seller list placement. Steele was on the payrolls of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s campaign to ferret out what were later revealed as non-existent connections between Trump and Russia.

FOX news begins its intrigue-laced report with these words:

“Federal agents arrested the primary sub-source who contributed to the unverified anti-Trump dossier Thursday as part of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigations regarding the origins of the probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Igor Danchenko’s arrest is linked to a federal grand jury indictment in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. Durham has charged Danchenko, a Russian citizen residing in Virginia, with five counts of making false statements to the FBI.”

Read the Nov. 3, 2021 indictment here.

Missing — always missing — especially in the pages of the leftist, McCain-worshiping local newspaper, is any reference to the key player in the attempt to bring down Donald Trump: John McCain. He’s the bitter man who obsessively envied and despised Trump. The 45th president, a businessman, with no political experience, achieved that which continued to elude resentful Republicrat McCain, who lost the presidency in both 2000 and 2008.

The discredited dossier was funded by the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. McCain and Hillary were long-standing pals.

McCain admitted hand-carrying the vicious and contrived report intended to irreversibly damage Donald Trump, to then-FBI director, later fired, James Comey. When called out on his major role in attempting to topple Trump, McCain, exuding his malicious style bragged, “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell.”

Columnist EJ MindTiny gets it Mcbassackwards again

October 28, 2021

There is no disputing the fact that the Republican-hating, Hillary-endorsing, (seriously!) Arizona Repulsive newspaper is on life support.* Yet instead of attempting to resuscitate itself, the failing disseminator of leftist propaganda stays the course that has brought it to this pathetic condition. Although President Donald Trump no longer occupies the Oval Office, he continues to take up residence in the heads of the biased reporters and columnists, who routinely use the popular former president as a  punching bag.

In a bow to the Biden-endorsing, RINOcrat McCain women, EJ Montini’s column is headlined, “Daughter finds McCain still living inside Trump’s head.” He is referring to notorious Mega, not Sidney (born during McCain’s first marriage) or Bridget, his two other daughters.

As anyone paying attention knows, the exact opposite is true. Contrarian (19-second video) John McCain, whose entire career was predicated on one day being president, ran unsuccessfully twice, losing the 2000 primary to George W. Bush and the 2008 general election to Barack Obama.

McCain was so enraged that Donald Trump, who had never previously held public office, won overwhelmingly (less than 2-minute video) during his first presidential race, that vengeful McCain — who made up a guest list for his own funeral — intentionally omitted President Donald and First Lady Melania Trump.

Instead of dedicating the time he had left to interacting with his family, megalomaniac McCain orchestrated three funerals for himself.

For more on the newspaper working as the personal publicist for the McCain family read, “McCain & Co.: Too much is never enough.”

TX Gov. Abbott accuses Biden of creating a “public health disaster”

August 4, 2021

President Trump’s border wall construction has been systematically dismantled by cognitively impaired Biden and his incompetent “border czarina,” VP Kamala Harris

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, frustrated by the Biden administration’s unwillingness to control the border, has issued this Executive Order directing the state’s Department of Public Safety to assist with arrests of illegal aliens and to allow state troopers to stop vehicles suspected of transporting them.

The troopers can stop vehicles “upon reasonable suspicion” and can reroute them to their point of origin or impound them if they are found to be carrying illegals.

The Republican governor specifically called out Biden’s failure to enforce the Title 42 Order, combined with his refusal to enforce the immigration laws enacted by Congress, which he declared is having a predictable and potentially catastrophic effect on public health in Texas. Gov. Abbott cites reports detailing that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has recently seen a 900% increase in the number of illegal detainees who tested positive for COVID-19 in the Rio Grande Valley. The Executive Order cites busloads of illegals, an unknown number of whom are infected with COVID-19, being transported to communities across the State of Texas, exposing Texas citizens to the ravages of the highly communicable disease. Infected illegals are also being transported across the entire United States.

Giving precedence to illegals and disregarding the very real threat of infecting even more Americans with COVID-19 and the new Delta variant strain,  Biden’s U. S. Attorney General Merrick Garland and the Justice Department he heads, utilizing NINE U.S. DOJ lawyers, sued to block Gov. Abbott’s transportation order, calling it “dangerous” and “contrary to federal law,” when Abbott refused to rescind it.

Merrick Garland was Barack Obama’s unconfirmed choice for the U.S. Supreme Court. Former Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, a Republicrat compliantly doing Obama’s bidding, personally escorted him to the offices of other senators soliciting their support for senate confirmation. Fortunately radical leftist Garland was not confirmed, and the aptly named Flake, who carried a meager 18% approval rating in his home state, opted out of running for reelection rather than face an embarrassingly lopsided loss. He then joined Cindy and Mega McCain in endorsing mentally incompetent Joe Biden for president.

“Conservative” AZ Gov candidate Kari Lake was an Obama democrat. Major new video added

July 26, 2021

Talk is cheap…actions matter: Kari Lake revealed as Republican impostor who praised Obama’s leftist pick Merrick Garland for the U.S. Supreme Court

Former news reader Kari Lake has entered Arizona’s governor’s race, characterizing herself as a “conservative” Republican. Her record tells a different story. Using her married name Kari L. Halperin records show she donated to both John Kerry and Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns and getting testy when asked about her political switch as reported by leftist Mediaite.

She has bizarrely compared herself to Ronald Reagan who was once a democrat before seeing the light — a path she took in reverse. Kari Lake, who has honed her skills on camera after years of reading teleprompter scripts on Channel 10, is no Ronald Reagan, switching instead from Republican to a democrat. Lake is a political opportunist who has never held political office and has nothing to recommend her for Arizona’s top job. When asked about her political duplicity, she classily retorted, “Who gives a crap?” according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Kari Lake donated $850 to both John Kerry’s and Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns in 2004 and 2008, leaving the Republican Party, reregistering as an Independent before switching again to become a democrat in 2008. She opportunistically switched back when she thought it would benefit her.

Lake has also hired Mark Buse, John McCain’s senior advisor, to run her campaign. 

It’s no mystery why the Republican-loathing local newspaper headlined its report following Saturday’s Election Integrity rally featuring former President Donald Trump, “Lake stands out among GOP candidates.” The blatant scheme at play is to make the least credible candidate appear to be the frontrunner. Don’t be conned by the conniving, leftist Arizona Republic.

There is too much at stake to trust a manipulative political charlatan with running the state of Arizona which now has two democrat U.S. Senators for the first time since Ernest McFarland (born in 1894) and Carl Hayden (born in the pre-statehood Arizona Territory in 1878) represented the state. Hayden had been the territorial sheriff and first ran for congress in 1911 in anticipation of Arizona’s 1912 statehood. Both Hayden and McFarland joined the military during World War I.

Throwing good sense to the winds is a recipe for disaster for the state of Arizona. Seeing Red AZ endorses State Treasurer Kimberly Yee in the AZ governor’s race. She does far more than reading prepared scripts on a teleprompter. Her solid conservative credentials are impeccable.*

This is faux “conservative” Kari Lake — who was actually a registered democrat — endorsing leftist Merrick Garland, Barack Obama’s pick to replace conservative Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court:

H/T: Video courtesy of SRAZ’s reliable commentor Trevor, who scooped us on this. We added it Aug. 4, 2021 Many thanks, Trevor. This will get much needed exposure.

* Since this endorsement of State Treasurer Kimberly Yee was posted, Yee announced her decision to remain as State Treasurer, and will campaign for a second term in that office. We endorse Kimberly Yee as she campaigns to retain that post where she has done a remarkable job during a most difficult time. Our position on Kari Lake has not changed.

Jeff Flake: Biden picks turkey as ambassador to Turkey

July 15, 2021

Appointment is reward for Flake’s support of Biden’s presidential campaign

In what is surely one of the most appropriate appointments to come out of the Harris/Biden administration Arizonan Jeff Flake has been nominated as ambassador to Turkey. Cindy McCain, who also campaigned for the democrat ticket, was similarly rewarded with an ambassadorship.

Flake, a former congressman and single term U.S. Senator, perfected his role as show-boater extraordinaire, colluding with democrats, though elected as a Republican. He posted photos of himself writing checks to democrat candidates, and was avidly anti-Trump,* to the point that his relatives who make up a majority of the conservative LDS town of Snowflake, AZ named in part for his great-great-grandfather, refused to support his candidacy according to a report in the local newspaper. Flake, who was born and raised in Snowflake, opportunistically moved to Mesa to launch his single issue, opposition to “earmarks,” congressional campaign.

Flake’s unprecedentedly low 18 percent approval ratings in his home state, convinced him not to seek a second senate term. Not only was Flake John McCain’s protégé, he was also Barack Obama’s weekly basketball teammate and traveling buddy, accompanying Obama and the democrat black caucus on a junket to Kenya.

A man of unparalleled deception, Flake’s pre-political past, which he tried to obscure, included working as a registered foreign agent lobbying on behalf of Iranian uranium mining interests in Africa. There was no room for this disclosure or his open border positions on Flake’s resume.

* The Washington Times’ Cheryl K. Chumley exposed this 2019 anti-Constitutional secret voting scheme to remove President Trump from office, topped by a photo of the lead instigator, Jeff the Flake.
