Nat’l Primary elections: “Blue Wave” fails to materialize

August 8, 2018

Close elections show Republicans there is work to do

There’s no denying Ohio 12th District Special Primary Election was a squeaker, but with 100% of the precincts reporting, Republican Troy Balderson — holding 50.2 percent of the vote — has been declared the winner. Democrat Danny O’Connor carried 49.3 percent.

Obviously, the margin should have been bigger. This Green Party nutcase candidate actually siphoned votes in the election, telling more about far left voters than him.

Democrats have little to run on. During the campaign, O’Connor repeatedly vowed not to support Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker. Acknowledging their own disgraceful leadership is what liberal have in their arsenal.

Under President Trump, the national economy has surged, Unemployment is at an 18-year low — with historically low unemployment among minorities. Three million jobs have been created, workers have seen the highest boost in their pay in a decade, as three million working class families have benefited from Trump‘s tax cuts, resulting in record high consumer confidence. Second quarter growth was four percent.

Another race of interest is Kansas’ Republican gubernatorial Primary Election —- another close call that should show a much wider margin. Secretary of State Kris Kobach, well known to Arizona conservatives for his work on SB1970, is leading sitting Republican Gov. Jeff Colyer by 191 votes.

Keep your fingers crossed for this decent and intelligent man who has tackled voter fraud and illegal immigration.

Trump adopts policies of Lincoln, rather than Reagan

July 29, 2018

It’s time to re-Lincolnize the GOP

From time to time we post an exceptional column under the heading, “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.”

Today we bring you a gem. “The Lincoln Model: How Trump Can Shut Down the Democratic Plantation.” Posted on Townhall, it Is excerpted from Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, “Death of a Nation.” His movie with the same title opens nationwide Friday, August 3.

We invite you to read this remarkable commentary on President Donald Trump, who more closely conforms to President Abraham Lincoln than to President Ronald Reagan on vital issues including immigration and tariffs.

D’Souza’s revealing expose on Democrats’ lies is illuminating. He writes,

“For too long conservatives and Republicans have allowed big lies to take over the culture and, in some cases, their minds. This progressive cultural hegemony has polluted our education system and our media with fake narratives and fake history. It has also created a kind of Stockholm syndrome among conservative intellectuals. “In our hearts we know we’re wrong.” But we’re not wrong. We’ve been lied to. It’s time for us to stop apologizing—we have nothing to apologize for—and go on the offensive. Truth is our deadliest weapon, if we will deploy it.”

And while we‘re on the topic of President Trump, the Washington Examiner headlines it’s report,Media blackout: Trump’s 60-point accomplishment list of ‘American Greatness,’” detailing the lack of media coverage of the achievements the Trump administration has racked up, both domestically and internationally, in its first 500 days. The list is bullet-pointed for ease in reading.

Today is a two-for-one-day. Enjoy!


Sinema: AZ donkey disguised as elephant angles for votes

July 27, 2018

AZ’s growing number of registered “Independent” voters, less attuned to political realities, could irretrievably tip the national scales

A zoo in Cairo is causing a ruckus and raising indignation after the deception was exposed that donkeys had been painted to look like more expensive to purchase zebras. Actual zebras have different characteristics that make the fraud conspicuous.

Here in Arizona, we have a donkey masquerading as an elephant and the silence has been deafening. Not a peep has emanated from the zookeepers at GOP headquarters, asking where Kyrsten Sinema’s party identifier is on her ubiquitous campaign ads. Of interest is the fact that she’s running them on the conservative Fox cable news network.

Sinema has undergone a total, though superficial, transformation, as she refers to herself as a “problem solver,“ who “works across the aisle to get things done.”  She repeatedly calls herself “independent,” even “fiercely” so. That word is used with intent to capture the growing number of “Independent” voters, who miss the negative and far-reaching consequences of voting for this political fraud.

She’s the author ofUnite and Conquerwhich details her techniques.

Poised and polished, speaking softly cloaked in her newly crafted demeanor, there is no hint of the crude and coarse, self-identified bi-sexual, former Green Party-leaning Communist, candidate turned Democrat.  In her former incarnation, she used foul-mouthed slurs to describe women who choose to be stay-at-home Moms. Now blonde and slim, wearing glasses to make her appear studious, and tipping her head in a submissive pose, it’s clear the CD 9 U.S. Representative — an avowed atheist who refused to take her oath of office with her hand on the Bible — worked with a coach in her latest and most significant deceptive quest. 

Currently running statewide for the U.S. Senate, Sinema’s obviously trying to capture cross-party votes, even desiring Republicans she can con.  She’s raising massive amounts of money to effect the change.

This donkey disguised as an elephant is a shrewd schemer, positioning herself to use a U.S. Senate seat to align with the Chuck Schumer-led leftists and block conservative votes on matters of national importance, such as confirmation of Supreme Court Justices, federal district court judges and cabinet appointees nominated by President Trump. The senate’s powers are detailed here.

 The painted jackasses in the Cairo zoo pale by comparison to the one here in Arizona working diligently to deceive Arizona voters.  

Seeing Red AZ strongly supports principled conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate.


Kyrsten Sinema’s vicious slurs aimed at women ignored

July 23, 2018

Double standard exists when denigrating women. Men get taken down, women get elected

In today’s highly charged, politically-correct world with celebrities and politicians falling in the wake of the #MeToo movement, heavy footed legislator Paul Mosely (R-LD 5) has more problems than putting pedal to the metal and bragging (video) about his excessive speeds to the officer who pulled him over. Claiming legislative immunity he was given a warning. That loophole has recently been rescinded.

He also has strong faith-based views about women and their place, which is in the home — not in the work force — reportedly asking why working mothers aren’t home with their children. 

But his comments, for which he has apologized, pale in comparison to those of Kyrsten Sinema, who previously was elected to the same Arizona state legislature. Her coarse and foul-mouthed, stunningly offensive remarks viciously denigrating stay-at-home moms received little attention:

An ardent supporter of same-sex marriage, she mockingly blasted women who devote themselves to their families rather than working outside the home. Her crude comment was:

 “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f**k are we really talking about here?” Following the spirit of unity Dems claim to embrace, Sinema then proceeded to deride conservatives as “Neanderthals.”

Sinema, whose 2016 Congressional primary victory was enthusiastically cheered by the Advocate, an LGBT site, praising her for “moving one step closer to being the first openly bisexual member of Congress.”

An atheist who refused to take her oath of office with her hand on the Bible, she now occupies that congressional seat and is running for the U.S. Senate. 

Formerly a Green Party candidate who sent May Day messages to the Communist Worker newspaper, Sinema has re-crafted herself as a soft spoken, aisle-crossing moderate. Democrats, eager to grab a crucial senate seat, have heavily funded her campaign.  According to the June 30. 2018 FEC filings, she has raised $9,563,041.22, spent $6,446,752.43 — much of it on ubiquitous TV ads showcasing her newly crafted soft-spoken image. The hard left liberal still has nearly $5 and a half million cash on hand. 

Don’t be fooled into surrendering a key senate seat to this candidate whose extreme views represent few Arizonans. The senate is entrusted with confirming federal judges and U.S. Supreme Court nominees.

Along with this stellar list of endorsers, Seeing Red AZ strongly supports principled conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. SenateHer primary opponents Martha McSally (often referred to on this site as Sally McCain), and 86-year-old Joe Arpaio refuse to debate her. (video) Your donations will help her stay competitive against the out-of-state money funding Leftist Sinema.


Egomaniacal Jeff Flake stages anti-Trump tantrum

July 20, 2018

Trump Derangement Syndrome afflicts AZ’s embarrassing Republicrat

Jeff Flake, unable to run for reelection due to staggeringly low polling numbers among his home state Republicans, has instead set his sights on becoming Arizona’s embarrassment. He began his descent with a 140-page pamphlet masquerading as a book, sticky-fingering the title directly from that of Barry Goldwater’s 1960 iconic book, ‘Conscience of a Conservative,’ which described the fundamentals of conservatism. Though Flake pilfered the title, he never actually comprehended conservatism.  He knew the word started with the letter “C” and was multi-syllabic, but confused ‘conservatism’ with ‘contrariness.‘

Showboating is the not too bright Flake’s stock in trade.  Emboldened by the attention he’s generated, McCain’s doppelganger Jeff Flake plows ahead. The left-wing networks — notably ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN and their ilk, are ready repositories for his hateful spews directed at President Donald Trump. Having an “R” after his name, no matter how misplaced the designation is, makes him a valuable tool in their ongoing scheme to denigrate and destabilize the president.

Flake is noted for flashing his inappropriately placed grin, ever mindful of giving his capped teeth a workout. His bleach-streaked hair is receding, but stiffly coiffed. Lies flow out of his mouth with the same intensity as a spewing, fiery, lava eruption.

His latest assault follows President Trump’s comments at a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Flake took to the senate floor declaring Trump’s remarks verged on treason. “The president let down the free world by giving aid and comfort to an enemy of democracy,” he said. “In so doing, he dimmed the light of freedom ever so slightly in our own country.” Though not explicitly calling the president a traitor, his intent was clear, since Article III, Sec. 3 of the U.S. Constitution says treason consists of giving “aid and comfort” to America’s enemies.’

Was it traitorous when Flake accompanied then-President Barack Obama to grovel at the feet of Raul Castro, Cuba’s communist dictator? Where were the aggrieved pundits then?

Flake, whose most significant job before feeding at the public trough was in the 1990s when he and his wife lived in the African nation of Namibia, as he worked as a registered foreign agent, opening D.C. doors for Rossing Uranium, a mining company that is among the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel —- and partially owned by Iran. National Journal’s exposé during his initial congressional campaign stated, “Flake’s little-known time in the influence industry stands in contrast to his carefully cultivated image as a Washington outsider.”

Now as his congressional career screeches to a halt, he devotes his time to joining with the Trump-hating Democrats. The latest Rasmussen polling shows Congress holds a 15% approval rating. President Trump polls at 44%, with 31% strongly approving of his performance.

Those crickets you hear chirping? That’s the sound emanating from AZ GOP chairman Jonathan Lines, refusing once again to rein in the party’s embarrassment. Flake’s despicable antics are particularly damaging to Republican candidates approaching the upcoming elections. They also insult Republican voters —  nationwide. Lines apparently doesn’t care.


Jon Kyl: “Coyote” for Supreme Court nominee

July 10, 2018

One of the great curiosities of the Trump Administration concerns the high number of “Never Trumpers” — Open borders, Country Club Republicans — who somehow worm their way into positions of responsibility and power — allegedly in the service of President Trump.

The latest — and most notorious — example is the decision to have Jon Kyl — the calculating and committed Arizona amnesty supporter, given the responsibility of shepherding U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh through the process of senate confirmation. The former Arizona Senator, who double-crossed the voters who awarded him his last term (sound familiar?), caved on promises of border security, and was all-in for the infamous McCain Amnesty. The cautious “McKyl” made his treacherous turn for crass careerism — ironically, centered on the Supreme Court.

Here’s the way it went down: Kyl, who might know his way around a speedway, but has a crappy understanding of Vegas odds for “shooting craps,” gambled that his support of “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” would result in his nomination to the High Court by George W. Bush. There was just one problem. There was no vacancy. So, Kyl slithered out of the Senate and into a D.C. lobbying job at Covington & Burling where he partners with Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder, among others. Last year Kyl was appropriately named to The Hill‘s “Top Lobbyists: Hired Gunslist, rife with Democrats.

The unctuous Kyl, remembered in Arizona for his slimy McCain-like efforts to purge elected conservatives on the precinct level, is now custodian of the new Supreme Court nominee, escorting him through the senate halls to meet with those who will be voting yea or nay on his confirmation.  As recently as February 2018, Phoenix’ KJZZ headlined a report, “Former Sen. Jon Kyl Is No Fan Of President Trump.”

Now the same Kyl is running an escort service on behalf of President Trump’s SCOTUS nominee.

Ain’t Washington grand?


AZ República: Minorities cannot be Republicans

June 24, 2018

The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEAO) held its annual conference in Phoenix June 21 – 23, and Elvia Diaz, the younger but equally charming version of Linda Valdez went for the political jugular, with her editorial, “When will Latino Republicans kiss off the party that snubs them?”

She wistfully wonders where the leading Republicans speakers were, blaming them for not being there, while longing for the days when men of stature like John McCain and Mitt Romney addressed the NALEAO attendees. She neglects to mention that this conference like any other, has an agenda and invited guest speakers. People don’t walk into the Biltmore Resort and demand a podium and microphone. Blaming people who weren’t invited for not addressing the conference is preposterous, but par for Diaz’ deceptive course. Recently she opined on children of detained illegals being held in “cages” when that farce has been discredited. She blames Pres. Trump for the border detainments though the program has existed for decades, escalating under Barack Obama. She also blames Trump for an “isolationist and white supremacist agenda.”  She must have missed the big story about the historic Singapore meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

In 2012 when Mitt Romney spoke to NALEAO he was met with boos amid restrained applause. Addressing reducing the size of government, cutting taxes or topics that would appeal to a broad base of Americans are not on the group’s agenda. Members remain nearly singularly focused on what they referred to as “immigration” and the rest of us view as an illegal invasion. 

There is a difference. One is legal. The other is not. Grousing Diaz makes no such distinction. Instead, she questions why Hispanics would register as Republicans. Group think and marching in ethnicity-based lockstep is her offensive stock in trade.

In Elvia Diaz’ bigoted world view there can be no deviation from your gene pool.

How does she view major black intellectuals who espouse a conservative ideology? Notables include Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas; former Congressman and Army Lt. Col. (ret.) Allen West; economists and prolific authors Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams. Businessman Herman Cain and Dr. Ben Carson, a renown neurosurgeon, were each considered leading contenders for the U. S. Presidency on the GOP ticket. Vanderbilt Political Science Professor Dr. Carol Swain, a frequent conservative guest on televised political talk shows and conservative political columnist Star Parker, are rank renegades.

Included in the lengthy list of Hispanic Republicans appointed by President Trump, are Mercedes Schlapp, who serves as White House Director of Strategic Communications; U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta; U.S. Treasurer Jovita Carranza; White House Director of Media Affairs Helen Aguirre Ferre; Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, Anna Maria Farias.

Elected Republican Hispanics are also too numerous to name individually, but include Governors Susana Martinez (NM) and Brian Sandoval (NV); U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (TX) and Marco Rubio (FL) were both GOP presidential contenders; Texas Commissioner of the General Land Office, George P. Bush; U.S. Congressmen Carlos Curbelo (FL), Alex Mooney (WV), Ron DeSantis (FL) and Illinois Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti.

Does Diaz consider them and the many other Hispanic Republicans, traitors to their biology? Is that oppressive boot-on-the-neck her idea of a better America?
