AZ teaches’ strike leader admits, “Teaching is political”

April 25, 2018

Propagandizing students is educrats’ game plan

Today Seeing Red AZ is taking a road never previously traveled since our inception in 2007.  We are sending our readers directly to another site — in this case, Breitbart — where Dr. Susan Berry Ph.D, has written an illuminating exposé on Noah Karvelis, a radically leftwing elementary school teacher leading the indefensible teachers’ strike set to take place in our state on Thursday.

Twenty-four-year-old Karvelis has urged his colleagues on Twitter to teach political activism to their students and to discuss with them gun control, white supremacy, and anti-capitalism.

Never forget the “underpaid” teachers, who work 81/2 months a year, are able to support the far left teacher’s unions* to the tune of $millions a year, earmarked for Democrat candidates and liberal causes.

These same people are undermining the values conservative parents try to instill in their children.  Karvelis, a cool hip-hop music teacher, volunteered on the presidential campaign of self-admitted Socialist Bernie Sanders. Additionally Karvelis has been a political consultant and staff writer for the Progressive Times, which defines itself on its masthead with this banner: “Progressive, independent journalism for the political revolution.”

This is akin to putting Marxists in charge of educating our children. Noah Karvelis, and others like him, are dangerously influencing America’s youth, steering them away from democracy that flourishes in our representative Republic, and into the liberty killing fields of Socialism.

AZ Special Election Congressional Dist. 8 results & more

April 24, 2018

 We’ve got what you’re looking for —  and the back story

Beginning at 8:00 pm tonight, the Secretary of State’s automatically updating election results can be viewed HERE.

Congressional District 8 has 455,660 registered voters, residing in 143 precincts within Maricopa County. The Republican stronghold district was previously represented by conservative Congressman Trent Franks, first elected in 2002.

Republican Debbie Lesko is running to replace him. A well respected pro-life legislative leader who supports President Donald Trump, she has served in both the Arizona House and Senate and was Senate President Pro-Tempore. Lesko has amassed an impressive list of endorsements.

Hiral Tipirneni is a liberal Democrat who has played fast and loose with the truth in campaign ads showing her in scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck, at a patient’s bedside. In fact, she has not practiced medicine since 2007, after a serious medical malpractice charge was brought against her.

“It’s disingenuous,” said Jack Pandol, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee. “Hiral wants voters to believe she’s something other than who she really is: a former physician sued for malpractice who turned to a cushy job making millions hawking Obamacare instead.” 

Philip Wegmann reporter for The Washington Examiner tweets Hiral Tipirneni’s deceit was outed by her Apple Watch, worn in the campaign ad. He writes, “Apple came out with the original watch in 2015.

Tipirneni hasn’t treated a patient since 2007.”

SRAZ is calling the race for Debbie Lesko by at least 10 points.

And the winnah is…..DEBBIE LESKO

With early ballots counted, Republican former state Senator Debbie Lesko has been declared the winner over Democrat challenger Hiral Tipirneni —-  proving baseless smear campaigns don’t resonate with knowledgeable voters.. Early ballots show Lesko carrying 52.9% of the vote to Tipirneni’s 47.1%.


McCain’s family releases vague health reports

April 24, 2018

Smelling a political rat

Inspiring no confidence in the veracity of their reports that the seriously ill senator is “recovering nicely” from recent surgery, his wife Cindy and daughter Meghan appear to be engaging in more than wishful thinking. There is a deception that is obviously intended to provide cover to the fact that he severely impaired McCain does not intend to step down from the D.C. office to which he is unlikely to ever return.

Diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive and deadly form of brain cancer last July, McCain recently underwent surgery at Scottsdale Mayo Clinic for what was described as an “intestinal infection related to diverticulitis.”

His senate office is suspiciously mum, though they continually and bizarrely post tweets and press releases under the ailing 81-year-old senator’s name.

Cindy McCain tweeted Monday that she and her husband, John, returned to their Cornville, AZ compound to enjoy sunsets.

Even the local McCain-supporting newspaper is more candid, writing, “While Cindy’s tweet suggests the senator has been released from the hospital, his office has not clarified his medical condition or confirmed his release.”

The citizens of Arizona deserve senate representation. They are getting none from either John McCain or his doppelganger, Jeff Flake, who is not running for a second term due to an 18 percent approval rating and spends his remaining time in office bashing President Trump on obliging far left networks.


Utah GOP delegates no fans of Mitt McRomney

April 23, 2018

Romney, born and raised in Michigan, played down his Republican affiliation, as he supported abortion to be elected governor of liberal Massachusetts. Now the failed presidential candidate is in Utah running to the right for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Orrin Hatch and is meeting opposition

In an inauspicious attempt to restart his political career, the Salt Lake Tribune reports that after 11 grueling hours of political wrangling Utah GOP convention delegates forced Mitt Romney into a primary election against state Rep. Mike Kennedy in the U.S. Senate race.

In fact, Kennedy — a doctor and lawyer — finished in first place with 51 percent of the vote to Romney’s 49 percent. The former GOP presidential nominee fell far short of the 60 percent needed to clinch the nomination outright. Read the complete, illuminating article here.

Arizona GOP state delegates understand that frustration all too well, after decades of deceptive representation from Republicrat senators John McCain, ,Jeff Flake and previously, Jon Kyl, who all preferred illegal aliens to Arizona’s citizens and repeatedly tried — and failed — to muster support for passage of “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.”

Republican State Delegates in Arizona censured McCain, who retaliated using a well-heeled San Francisco Obama donor to purge Arizona Republican elected precinct committeemen from their unpaid posts. GOP Committeemen are the ones who do the heavy lifting to get Republican candidates elected throughout the state, but that was of no consequence to these single-minded establishment elite.

Romney made several trips to Arizona to bolster support for McCain and Flake, speaking to embarrassingly low attendance gatherings. Here is McCain bungling his introduction for Presidential candidate Romney.

McCain always configured his career-long collusion with liberals as indicative of being a “Maverick.” Fittingly, the Utah Convention was held in Maverik Hall. The spelling is off a notch, but the meaning remains clear.


A simple solution to halt AZ pedestrian deaths

April 22, 2018

Common sense enforcement needed, not study committees 

Arizona has a problem with pedestrian fatalities. According to data released by the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), which lists by state, we have the highest rate in the entire nation. Hawaii, which is not a border state, has the lowest. Making the numbers even more compelling is the fact that Maricopa County has the unenviable distinction of coming in second in fatalities of all U.S. counties.

The City of Phoenix, under the thumb of leftwing Mayor Greg Stanton —– a self described “progressive,” now running for congress —- jumped into action with the creation of a board to study the crisis. ‘Complete Streets’ has made recommendations after blaming the high fatality rate on our “streetscape.”

What?  You haven’t previously heard that word? That’s because you’re not a liberal urban planner, public health advocate dealing with sustainability, and complete streets, multi-modal/transportation planning and design or health impact assessments. Many of the board members are “quality of life” specialists.

Check out the Complete Streets Advisory Board Roster and their specialties.

An assemblage of nearly a dozen such luminaries is impressive, if you’re into costly social transformation. They addressed the Phoenix City Council demanding council members accelerate the process and adopt the “Complete Streets Guidelines” to make streets safer for pedestrians.

The group blames pedestrian fatalities on economic conditions, demographics, weather, fuel prices, and the amount of time people spend walking. Ergo, if you’re poor, snow drifts are high, you have to walk while texting, you could be an accident waiting to happen.

Among the concepts to alleviate such deficiencies provided for in the guidelines are more sidewalks, reducing the rate of traffic, shade structures and trees, including increased night time lighting.  The slowing of traffic, more lighting and planting of trees clearly conflict with the need to reduce gas, electricity and water consumption previously favored by “sustainability” alarmists. 

There is a simpler and less costly way to address the increase in pedestrian deaths. Begin ticketing people who refuse to use marked crosswalks. This was once known as “jaywalking” and was a ticketable offense. Now officers in patrol cars, concerned about negatively impacting cultural mores, blithely sail past mothers standing on the median with a flock of tykes, waiting for a traffic break to hustle them across the busy street, ignoring the nearby crosswalk and traffic signal.

Crosswalks are routinely disregarded. The attitude is, lines in the street are put there by authority figures and should be avoided regardless of the fact that they save lives. It’s a foolish, often ethnic-based, power struggle that has made Arizona the leader in pedestrian deaths. This is a fact you can be certain the ‘Complete Streets’ committee won’t address.


Dr. Kelli Ward holds decisive lead in GOP senate poll

April 19, 2018

There’s good news being reported by ABC Channel 15. According to a poll the station jointly conducted with OHPI last week, the Arizona Senate race is shaking out for a conservative win.

After a single term of Republicrat Jeff Flake, who opted out of running for reelection due to an abysmal 18 percent approval rating, Arizona conservatives see a light at the end of the anti-Trump tunnel. Both current senators, McCain and Flake stated that neither they nor their families would support Donald Trump — who emerged victorious over 16 other GOP presidential primary candidates. Flake mounted an ongoing tirade against President Trump on liberal media and denounced him in the senate chamber.

The Republican senatorial field is not lacking candidates, but only one, Kelli Ward, a physician, principled conservative and former two-term state senator, presents a real choice. Martha McSally, known on this site as Sally McCain, is more of the same.

 Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, has been a conservative star, but will be 86 by Election Day, making his run for a six-year term disconcerting even to his diehard supporters.

Arizonans have endured decades of liberals masquerading as Republicans. deceiving voters as they campaign, only to reveal their true blue personas once elected. This is amnesty supporting John McCain at his lying pinnacle. Jeff Flake also cloaked himself as a conservative when in campaign mode, much to the dismay of the liberal newspaper which needn’t have worried about his campaign related duplicity.  Retired Sen. Jon Kyl pulled the same charade as he ran for his final senate term.

The poll results announced on the news report give Dr. Kelli Ward the decisive edge with 36%. Martha McSally fell far short with 27% and popular Joe Arpaio, now unfortunately taking the role of spoiler, held only 22%.

The winner of the GOP primary will face liberal Democrat Krysten Sinema a one-term CD 9 U.S. House member, who has deceptively softened her foul-mouthed image, but is still the former Green Party candidate who celebrated May Day with personal greetings in the People’s World Weekly Communist newspaper, compared women who stay home raising their families to leeches, defamed the military — which she now esteems — and revels in declaring herself the first openly bisexual, atheistic member of congress. To underscore the point, she refused to take her oath of office on a Bible.

Other good news centers on the polling numbers of President Trump. Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential polling shows him with a 50% approval rating, higher than Barack Obama’s 47% approval on the same date eight years ago –– in the second year of his presidency. Trump is winning with the American people,  despite continual leftwing media assaults.


Students learn the art of mob rule from teachers

April 18, 2018

Emulating their protesting teachers who staged walkouts, abandoning their students to demand an outrageous 20% pay hike, the kids who have learned little educationally have become adept at demanding.  Not understanding the significance of the Second Amendment, they want gun control, and the brash, under-educated students want it now.

Here in Arizona, they are going to the state capitol — possibly for the first time — to stage a “die in” to protest school shootings by lying on the ground in a mock death pose.  Using mob-like tactics, they also plan to occupy several government buildings to demand Gov. Doug Ducey support stricter gun control laws. The demands and antics are coordinated with students nationwide.

The date was chosen to commemorate the Columbine High School massacre in Littleton, Colorado. In 1999, two maniacal students killed twelve students and a teacher, before killing themselves. The assassins deliberately chose the date to coincide with the birthday of Nazi mass murderer Adolf Hitler.

Organizers are not satisfied with Gov. Ducey’s school safety plan which includes placing officers in Arizona schools.

The National School Walkout has a Walkout Planning Guide and announced this three part goal:

  1. Hold elected officials accountable
  2. Promote solutions to gun violence
  3. Demystify and engage students in the political system

If the students were properly educated, there would be no need to “demystify” our system of government.

A decidedly liberal approach is manifest in this tip to protesters titled, “A Note on Safety and Privilege.” White privilege is the latest crime for which atonement must be made, and these radicals haven’t left that out of the equation:

“Guidance on how to plan your actions to ensure that no one is asked to take on a role that they are not comfortable with, and how to be mindful of the fact that not everyone walking out faces an equal level of risk.”

The Arizona legislature is scheduled to begin debate on the issue later this week. According to the daily newspaper’s report, student marchers have derided the governor’s efforts, calling it “51 pages of utter BS.” They also view any efforts at reform as placating the National Rifle Association.

The demonstrators need to talk to Kim Corban, (brief video) who calls the National Rifle Association, “Freedom’s Safest Place.”

These are the educrat liberals behind the Network for Public Education, the moving force propelling the anti-Second Amendment organization, propagandizing* America‘s easy to manipulate under-educated youth.
