R U appreciating extortionist teachers during Teachers Week?

May 8, 2018

National Teacher Appreciation Week began on Monday May 7, and runs through Friday May 11. That’s obviously not a week, but the National Education Association (NEA) informs us that it is. Who’d want to take on a group that has mega $millions and marching goons at its disposal? 

We saw teachers at work here in Arizona last week. Not actually “at work,” as they abandoned the students they contracted to educate while they staged their brassy REDSforEd protests over salaries — led by a 24-year-old self-identified Socialist and Bernie Sander’s Arizona presidential campaign organizer who teaches hip-hop music.

When they got the outrageous 20% increase they demanded, it wasn’t enough. Baring themselves as lockstep liberal union thugs, they proceeded to file an extortive Initiative to permanently “tax the rich,” to enrich themselves.

Of course they’ll use that money judiciously, lobbying on behalf of candidates and causes that the organization believes will make our country better for the students entrusted to them. The question is, why are those issues and candidates they back overwhelmingly left-wing Democrats?

The organization is no fan of Charter Schools, which give parents the ability to make educational choices for their own children. Charters often outperform the government schools which have become hotbeds of liberalism, promotingsocial justiceand illegal immigration over education — intentionally blurring the lines between actual immigrants and those who invade our country. The NEA site even includes this form to “Tell your representatives to oppose any private school voucher program for military-connected students.”  After it’s filled out, the ham-fisted NEA takes over getting the message to the representatives.

The NEA promotes the now-yearly ‘Day of Silence’ where students remain silent all day in support of all things “LGBTQIA.”  Not much learning going on but celebrating homosexuality in all its incarnations takes center stage. The NEA declares ”sexual literacy will be essential to address through critical comprehensive sexuality education in grades K-12.” It commends the “transition” of a kindergarten boy who became a girl halfway through the school year.

Diversity trumps unity. But their union activism takes first place.

Ninety-four percent of the funds teachers unions (NEA and AFT) contribute go to Democrats.

This video is from 2009, but it clearly spells out the views of the NEA regarding the children they are charged with educating. The words are spoken by Bob Chanin, the NEA legal counsel in a brief excerpt from his revealing retirement speech.

James O’Keefe latest Project Veritas undercover video “School Corruption Exposed” features New Jersey Teachers Union President Dr. David Perry. Watch as he blatantly states, “We need to know the truth so we can bend the truth,” as he covers up child abuse, protects drug-using and shoplifting teachers.

Central American illegals engage in border stunts

April 30, 2018

Coached, aided and abetted by open border legal activists

San Diego NBC 7 reports on the Central American “asylum seekers” who caravanned through Mexico in an attempt to breach our sovereign U.S. border. They are being coached on proper responses to give to Border Patrol agents by lawyer activists who regard the laws they are sworn to uphold as mere contrivances to circumvent.

Mexico, which has strict border enforcement along its own border with Central America, has taken on the role of facilitating co-conspirator, allowing the illegal entrants to pass peaceably through its borders. If these people claiming to seek asylum from horrific conditions in their own homelands actually need immediate help, why wouldn’t they have sought  asylum in Mexico where they speak the same language and share many customs? Instead, they cheer, “Gracias, Mexico!”

Don’t waste your sympathies on these natives of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras flooding through Tijuana into San Diego. There is a game plan at work here and Mexico is a key player.

The U.K.’s Daily Mail covers Mexico’s double standard when it comes to a wall to protect it’s own border.

Secretary of Homeland Security and attorney Kirstjen M. Nielsen warned in this recent statement on the Arrival of the Central American ‘Caravan’ at the U.S.-Mexico border that anyone — including people advising the illegals — caught breaking U.S. immigration laws would be prosecuted:

“Let me be clear: we will enforce the immigration laws as set forth by Congress. If you enter our country illegally, you have broken the law and will be referred for prosecution. If you make a false immigration claim, you have broken the law and will be referred for prosecution. If you assist or coach an individual in making a false immigration claim, you have broken the law and will be referred for prosecution.

DHS, in partnership with DOJ, has taken a number of steps to ensure the necessary resources are in place to promptly adjudicate all cases and claims, through either our civil immigration system or through criminal prosecution, consistent with our laws.

 Individuals of the ‘caravan’ seeking asylum or other similar claims should seek protections in the first safe country they enter, including Mexico.

The smugglers, traffickers, and criminals understand our legal loopholes better than Congress and are effectively exploiting them to their advantage. This President fully understands the threat this poses to Americans and has been crystal clear since the beginning of his Administration that we will protect our borders and our sovereignty.

I, again, ask Congress to work with me to quickly pass legislation to close the legal loopholes that prevent us from securing our borders and protecting Americans. I stand ready to work with any member who in good faith seeks to support DHS’s mission and secure our country.”

It doesn’t get much clearer than this. Secretary Nielsen is a world apart from Janet Napolitano, Barack Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Insecurity. Laissez-faire leftist Napolitano, a former Arizona Governor was noted for her blasé retort when frustrated Arizonans pleaded for border action: “Show me a 50-foot fence, and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder.”

Goldwater Institute: AZ teacher strike, school closures illegal

April 28, 2018

Actions violate students’ right to education

Watch Timothy Sandefur, VP for Litigation at the Goldwater institute:

This is the letter Sandefur sent Friday to school district superintendents throughout the state of Arizona, advising them of their constitutional obligation and consequences of failure to comply.

School closures occurred Thursday and Friday and are threatened to continue on Monday in conjunction with the illegal teacher strike. More than 800,000 students are being deprived of their constitutional right to an education.

Seeing Red AZ hopes the Goldwater Institute moves forward and prevails against the extremist, thuggish tactics of the now emboldened, overwhelmingly leftist teachers unions and their dues paying members.

It is never a wise policy to negotiate with, or capitulate to, terrorists. The #REDSforED thugs fall into that category. Gov. Doug Ducey, more interested in his future political aspirations than doing what’s right, has shown himself to be weak and ineffective by acquiescing to their demands. As they’ve upped the ante from a hefty 20% raise to launching a ballot measure put together by the radical, Chicago-based Center for Economic Progress, totax the rich,’ their socialist agenda is clear.

Know this: It’s not about “the children.”

 


Irrational AZ Republic reporting hits new low

April 9, 2018

MS-13 gangsters shouldn’t be held responsible for crime, terror surge

We here at Seeing Red AZ abhor triteness and generalities as much as the next person, so right out of the hatch we’re cutting to the chase as we attempt to interpret the local newspaper‘s “No stars — Inconclusive” rating of a statement made by Rep. Martha McSally, (R-CD 2).

Let us be perfectly clear.  Martha McSally, often referred to on this site as “Sally McCain,” is not our cup of tea. In fact, she’s too liberal by half, regardless of how she tries to characterize herself while in candidate mode. You can take that to the bank.

Sally McCain is abandoning her House post to run for the U.S. Senate seat currently unoccupied by preening self-pimping, Republicrat Jeff Flake, a John McCain colluder — who prefers to spend his remaining time canoodling with left-wing media types, throwing slings and arrows at Republican President Trump.

Such is the sad state of affairs in Arizona GOP politics. For all intents and purposes, Arizonans have no representation in the U.S. Senate. The logical, principled conservative choice is Dr. Kelli Ward, whom we support.

But we digress.

Sally McCain (aka Martha McSally) is being taken to task for besmirching the international MS-13 gang which has fanned out an estimated 10,000 violent, murderous and drug smuggling gang members throughout the United States.

The Arizona Republic newspaper, known as The Periódico de la República de Arizona for its radical, pro-illegal alien stance, quibbles over the terms “criminal street gang” or simply “gang.” After all, these vicious and rapidly expanding monsters originated in Central America, which makes them sainted, redeemable Hispanics worthy of not only roaming freely in the USA, and obtaining taxpayer funded benefits but likely deserving of amnesty. Why not? The left-wing newspaper refers to the massive number of gangsters as  “fluctuating” and promotes illegal aliens being counted in the upcoming census, with the ultimate end game of bolstering the ranks of the Democrat party.

The newspaper quotes slippery Lidia E. Nuño, an assistant criminal justice professor at California State University (Fullerton).who doltishly disputes the gang’s numbers, is actually quoted as saying, “If the figure is correct, that doesn’t necessarily mean that these 10,000 individuals are murdering people each day.” Proving a Ph.D has lost its value, she foolishly adds, it “could be more than 10,000 or less than 10,000.”

At Arizona State University her Ph.D dissertation was titled, “Hispanics’ and Undocumented Immigrants’ Perceptions of Procedural Justice, Legitimacy, and Willingness to Cooperate with the Police: An Assessment of the Process-Based Model of Policing.”

No wonder she’s the newspaper’s go-to gal.


Latest illegal fraud: Pairing invasion with Holy Week

April 2, 2018

President Trump astutely reacts by calling off DACA deal

Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) details the latest invasion technique being used by what is described as “over a thousand” well trained Central American illegal aliens, boasting about making their way through Mexico to the United States, where their plans include claims of seeking asylum. This travesty is being carried out in connection with Holy Week, in conjunction with a wink and a nod from the Mexican government which has allowed the mob to pass through Mexico.

The invaders, about 80 percent Hondurans, are sophisticated enough to utilize technology both in putting together their well organized “caravan,” and recruiting and organizing participants. According to CIS reporter Kausha Luna, the group has a name, a slogan, and an outrageous mission statement — while seeking financial benefactors on Facebook.

”Our mission is to provide shelter and safety to migrants and refugees in transit, accompany them in their journey, and together demand respect for our human rights.”

Their slogan is “Migrantes en la lucha” (“Migrants in the Fight”).

Just days ago, the caravan set out from Tapachula (in Mexico, due west of Honduras) and began its trek northward. The group chanted “We are migrants. We are not criminals. We are workers.” 

One thing is certain, the invaders are neither studious nor educated workers, with degrees in science, math or engineering that would benefit America.

According to Classbase which reports on worldwide education systems, “The 6 years of Honduran primary school education are free, although less that 32% of pupils receive their educational grounding without repeating grades. These children represent only half of the original school entrants, and will have taken an average of 9.4 years to complete this phase.”

CIS’ Luna writes, “The group practiced security protocols, including formations which called for the men of the group to form a wall around the women and children. Moreover, the Central Americans made their way to Mexico’s Commission for Refugee Assistance and made calls for better compliance with international and national laws, faster processing of asylum applications, and an increase in acceptance rates.”

NumbersUSA has a compilation of additional information detailing the slippery invasion scheme, including outrageous demands for open borders and asylum access, along with an end to deportations.

According to the director of Pueblo Sin Fronteras — People Without Borders —- which announced the invasion intentions, from April 5 to April 9, a series of workshops will be hosted in Puebla, Mexico, by U.S. and Mexican immigration lawyers. The workshops will provide legal guidance on the issue of claiming asylum or refuge status in the United States.

In short, brassy invaders are demanding American citizens relinquish our country to them, as they replicate the corruption, criminality and penchant for depressing property values once they arrive here, by replicating the barros they left.

In response, President Trump  tweeted, “NO MORE DACA DEAL!”

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

 Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!

Dana Loesch: “NRA biggest defender of free speech” & crucial UPDATE

March 27, 2018

MUST READ UPDATE: 97-year-old former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens advocates repealing the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

With Second Amendment restrictionists maligning our constitutional rights and bellowing that guns are the culprits in mass shootings perpetrated by evil or mentality ill assassins, we bring you a voice of sanity.

“The NRA has been the biggest defender of free speech. I find it interesting that those individuals who simultaneously preach about free speech want to silence the speech of the millions of people who make up NRA membership.” –Dana Loesch

The NRA couldn’t have a more impassioned, articulate than Dana Loesch. Listening to her is always enlightening.

This linked video is when most of us first met Dana Loesch, in her national NRA role. It was an unforgettable introduction.

A few fast facts you might not have known:

Before seeing the light, Dana Loesch was once a registered Democrat, who worked on Bill Clinton’s second-term campaign. She and her music producer husband Chris Loesch, a Republican who influenced her politically and now manages her busy schedule, jointly home-school their two sons. An award winning investigative reporter, she has co-founded a tea party, worked as a radio talk show host and was appointed editor-in-chief for Big Journalism, part of the Breitbart network of conservative media. They are devout Christians. Although she endorsed Ted Cruz in the 2016 presidential primary, after President Trump’s election, she became a self described “passionate defender” of his presidency.

NRA Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer, Wayne LaPierre, explains the NRA’s position on raising the age (video) for purchasers of firearms.

It was bound to happen. In a New York Times op-ed published today, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, a well concealed RINO appointed to the high court by Pres. Gerald Ford, urges the repeal of the Second Amendment. Born into privilege in 1920, Stevens was previously appointed to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals by Pres. Richard Nixon.

His bizarre lack of regard for our Constitution could be laid off to the fact that Stevens is 97-years-old. We can reasonably assume a surrogate wrote this commentary. Regardless of its origins, it is a disgraceful effort to undermine our nation‘s foundational underpinnings.

Stevens was 90 years of age when he retired. Rather than repealing the Second Amendment, Americans should revisit the wisdom of lifetime appointments for Supreme Court Justices. Call your members of congress.

This is what we’re up against.  Be vigilant, anJOIN the NRA today. We have few other protectors of our rights.
