Leftist radicals seek to derail Trump inauguration, ball

January 17, 2017

Undercover video of potential criminal acts aimed at creating havoc 

Seeing Red AZ has very politically attuned and well read readers. We know most of you check a variety of sites each day since our commenters frequently provide us ideas for posts.  So it was when “Conservative Since Birth” posted Part 1 of the undercover Project Veritas investigative video exposing extremist groups plotting criminal activity at  Donald Trump’s inauguration and festivities. We later saw it on Drudge Report, so it is getting much-needed exposure.

On further reflection, we decided to post it here today since plotting these disruptive activities is adverse to the peaceful transfer of power that has underwritten each incoming presidential administration throughout our nation’s history.  If you’ve seen this video, consider watching it again. It’s that important.

These plotters are talking about setting off butyric acid into ventilation systems and activating fire alarm sprinklers at a Trump inaugural  ball. “We will show them no mercy of any kind.” they say. They discuss shutting down traffic in Washington, D.C. “Just f*ck it all up.”

“In the next four years, we will fight Trump and everything he stands for. We will show them no mercy of any kind,” they pledge.

Hollyweird radicals Michael Moore, Alec Baldwin and Mark Ruffalo are organizing a massive anti-Trump rally in New York City. Remember them — and their lunatic liberal cohorts — the next time you think you need to go to a movie or a concert.  Funding these marginal people who get rich reading other people’s words, only emboldens them.

Project Veritas notified the FBI, Secret Service and DC Metro Police regarding the content of this video prior to its release.


Petulant Dem U.S. Reps. boycott Trump inauguration

January 16, 2017

That smooth transition Barack Obama promised incoming President Donald Trump was just so much hot air. He has done nothing to dissuade his minions intent on delegitimizing the presidency of Donald J. Trump — whose much awaited inauguration will take place Friday.

The inauguration snub movement gained momentum when Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) declared that he would boycott the event because he doesn’t see Trump as a “legitimate president.” Trump responded saying “Lewis was all talk,” and soon news outlets were united in referring to Lewis as an untouchable civil rights “icon.”

Other members of Congress have jumped on the bandwagon, declaring they will be protesting. The list of mostly minority Democrats who have publicly stated they won’t be at the Jan. 20 ceremony  currently stands at about two dozen. The 115th Congress includes 435 U.S. House members. Republicans number 241 and Democrats 194, so the impudent dissidents hardly constitute a ripple.

We notice Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) isn’t on the list. Of course his mind is heavy with pressing issues, such as he evidenced in 2011 when he  expressed his concerns (video) that Guam would tip over and capsize, falling  into the ocean if too many people resided on the island.  More recently he has compared Jewish settlers to termitesRep. Raul Grijlava (D-AZ) is boycotting.

Jeff Flake’s close congressional amnesty buddy Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Illinois) has joined the list of non-attendees. Since Flake was so vocal in his opposition to Donald Trump that he frequently said  he wouldn’t vote for him, it will be interesting to see if he once again breaks ranks with Republicans and sits the inauguration out. We’re betting he’ll be there, letting the sunlight glint off his bottle streaked locks.

Former U.S. Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, along with their wives will attend. Former President George H.W.Bush and his wife, Barbara, will be absent. A spokesman said that “at ages 92 and 91— and all that entails — President and Mrs. Bush will be unable to attend.” The elder Bush has had serious health problems in recent years. 

Former President George H.W. Bush sent a gracious letter to the President-elect on January 10, apologizing for having to miss the ceremony, saying he and Barbara “wish you the very best as you begin this incredible journey of leading our great country.”
“My doctor says if I sit outside in January, it likely will put me six feet under. Same for Barbara,” Bush wrote, in a letter reported by ABC News. “So I guess we’re stuck in Texas.”

And the obsessive Obama? Lacking any semblance of a personal barometer or decorum, he continues to make sweeping policy changes within days of his exit and has not called on the  boycotting Democrats to act civilly as we install his successor. 


Dems confirmation sham calculated to disrupt Trump’s transition

January 12, 2017

Here’s some information to put all of the liberal Senate confirmation posturing of President-elect Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks in perspective. The U.S. Senate’s website has a lengthy but fascinating history of the process. Before checking the facts, take a guess at the number of Cabinet nominations ever rejected or withdrawn.

It turns out to be a rare event for the Senate to reject a Cabinet nomination. Only nine Cabinet appointees in all of U.S. history — appointed either by incoming U.S. Presidents or sitting Presidents attempting to fill vacancies in the middle of their terms — have ever been voted down by the Senate. 

Republicans are in the majority which should make confirmation even less of an issue, although Republicrats who are still reeling in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory revel in trying to disrupt the process.

Meanwhile, OneNewsNow reports the Obama and Hillary coat tail hangers are finding themselves jobless in D.C. The sure thing they so fervently believed in turned out to be an apparition. And that smooth transition Barack Obama promised Donald Trump’s administration? His lips were moving as he talked about emulating the graciousness of the 2008 George W Bush transition — a sure sign Obama was lying.


Yes, we can pay for the wall

January 8, 2017

WaPO refuses to allow the word “Obamacare” to appear in print, but calls national border security, “Trump’s wall”

The double standard is laughable. The Washington Post insists on calling problem plagued Obamacare the “Affordable Care Act,” to remove the onus from Barack Obama. Yet here in Arizona the costs have risen an astronomical 116%, taking it far from the realm of “affordable.’

So it is when you buy ink by the barrel, as a wise observer once noted.

The newspaper, which might as well declare itself an arm of the DNC for its blatant liberal bias, tries to configure the Republican majority House and Senate at odds with itself over “the party’s deeply held desire to rein in government spending in conflict with its long-standing goal of cracking down on illegal immigration and toughening border security.”

The WaPo oddly refers to the construction project that resonated with voters as “Trump’s wall” and disingenuously ponders how the project will be funded.  The newspaper echoes the words of Vicente Fox, Mexico’s former president, who insultingly questions the authenticity of Trump’s election, and then calls “Trump’s wall” a “racist monument.”

On the campaign trail, President-elect Trump said he would get Mexico to pay for the construction. There are many ways of accomplishing that fiscal feat. We offer a simple one. Warn the recipients that the gravy train is screeching to a halt for those aiding in the invasion of the United States.

FY 2017 U.S. foreign aid committed to Mexico $134,664,000.

The seven countries of Central America: Belize: $1,250,000; Guatemala: $145,105,000; El Salvador: $87,982,000; Honduras: $105,655,000; Nicaragua: $14,800,000; Costa Rica: $1,825,000; and Panama: $3,200,000

Then add in: Dominican Republic: $22,481,000 and Haiti: $218,050,000. And would you believe? American taxpayers even pony up for the Communist dictatorship of Cuba to the tune of $15,000,000

We have not even checked out the vast amounts of foreign aid directed to South American countries in 2017 which also funnel their citizens to the U.S. Withholding or drastically curtailing it will go a long way toward loosening up money to pay for the wall.

Of major importance are the $ billions in “remittance funds” sent back to their homeland by foreign nationals illegally living in the U.S., according to this 2016 General Accounting Office study to congress, which says “remittances have become an important and stable source of funds that exceeds revenues from exports of goods.” The transfer of our cash “can also be used to launder proceeds from different types of criminal activities, including drug trafficking and human smuggling, through methods such as structuring.” The high reporting threshold of $3,000 lets individuals send broken-up payments without raising questions. This transfer of our wealth needs to be heavily taxed or stopped.

Breitbart reports remittances to Mexico rose 25% after Trump’s election.

It’s past time to rein in this sapping of our resources. In these perilous times, we need to rebuild our military, invest in our infrastructure and secure our border.


Petulant Dems play risky, calculated political games

Obama sends American troops to Russian border

The newly sworn-in Republican-majority Congress is in unchartered waters with Donald Trump just two weeks from his Jan. 20 inauguration. They are faced with an unconventional leader whose much used Twitter account has 18.5 million followers. Members of the 115th Congress have to come to terms that Trump is far more popular in their districts than they are. Overall confidence in Congress has fallen sharply as this Gallop polling going back to 1977 illustrates.

But such facts are of little consequence to Senate Democrats still reeling over their massive losses — not only having their hopes of Obama’s third term played out by Hillary Clinton, dashed —- but losing governorships and U. S. House and Senate seats.

Writing for National Review Kevin D. Williamson assesses the scorched earth facts, adding a bit of whimsy to the Dems harsh reality:

There are 25 states in which the state legislatures and governorships are controlled by Republicans, and two states with executive/legislative divides in which there are Republican legislative majorities large enough to override a veto from the Democratic governor. Sixty-eight of the country’s 98 partisan state legislative chambers are Republican-run. There are only four states with Democratic governors and legislatures; it is true that these include one of our most populous states (California), but the majority of Americans live in states in which there are Republican trifectas or veto-proof legislative majorities. Two-thirds of the nation’s governors are Republicans; more than two-thirds of our state legislative houses are under Republican control. Republicans control both houses of Congress and have just won the presidency.

Democrats control the dean of students’ office at Oberlin.

Yet in typical fashion, Democrats react by turning out John McCain’s favorite leftist Chuck Schumer to announce that they will do whatever it takes to scuttle the nominations of at least eight of President-elect Donald Trump’s “rigged Cabinet” selections, as reported by the Washington Post. Their scheme, calculated to cause a fissure in the new administration, is to stretch confirmation votes into March — an unprecedented break with Senate tradition.

So much for Obama’s shallow words pledging a “smooth and efficient” transition for his successor. Obviously, he ditched his promise before the words left his mouth.

President-elect Trump’s popularity has soared in the days since his election, according to a new, not known to favor conservatives, POLITICO/Morning Consult poll of registered voters.

And soon-to-be-out-the-door Barack Obama? Back from his final taxpayer-funded, Hawaiian Christmas/golf vacation, he’s now busying himself deploying American special forces troops to join NATO at the Russian border to rein in “aggressor” Vladimir Putin.


2017: The New Year we’ve been waiting for

December 31, 2016


happy_new_year

Seeing Red AZ sends sincere best wishes for a satisfying, productive, safe and healthy New Year to our valued readers. As Americans, we’ve endured eight long years of the most disastrous presidency imaginable.

From Barack Obama’s failed dealings with Iran, funding the America-hating dictatorship with $33 Billion and making it nuclear capable, while backstabbing Israel at the U.N., to overseeing the growth of ISIS foolishly calling it a “JV Team.” He gave us the lie-based Obamacare and steadfastly refuses to say the words “radical Islamic terrorism.” His commitment is to flooding the United States with illegal aliens and unable to be vetted Middle Eastern “refugees.” His efforts to constrain our Second Amendment rights, to his obsessive use of Executive Orders bypassing Congress and disseminating phony stats on job numbers in our still struggling economy to giving credibility to the Black Lives Matter thugs by inviting them to the White House. The list goes on.

Although Obama twice swore an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, he intentionally failed to do so. His stated intent was to fundamentally transform the most free, prosperous and generous nation on Earth.

In three weeks we have a fresh beginning with Republican President Donald Trump and newly elected Republican House and Senate majorities — an undisputable repudiation of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, his choice to implement his third term.

As we embark upon this New Year, there is no better time to renew our acquaintance with America’s founding documents: The Declaration of Independence, our U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

They have served us well. The least we can do is stay familiar with what they contain, hold our Republican congressional majorities accountable and ensure that our children know what blessings we have been given as a nation.
