Dem’s filibuster duplicity intends to deceive

January 13, 2022

NY Post: The only reason to kill the filibuster: to empower Democrats

Today we veer from our usual practice of writing a post, and take our readers directly to those that are topical and describe the dem’s deceit as it relates to the filibuster they are suddenly so keen to remove from the legislative process. 

Written by Art Moore and posted on WND, “GOP senator’s pro-filibuster speech entirely from past Schumer remarks,” provides clarity to the topic that many Americans struggle to fully grasp and the democrats vulgar trickery as they make use of the process they chide us for protecting. For further background, we encourage reading, “Why Preserving the Legislative Filibuster Is Critical for Conservatives,” by Rachel Bovard, previously published on the Heritage Foundation website. It presents additional  insight on this crucial topic.

Democrats are suddenly committed to eliminating a fundamental tool they have repeatedly used, yet attach nefarious schemes to the GOP wanting to maintain the filibuster. Breitbart News earlier exposed which party has actually used the process most frequently. Its report is headlined, “Report: Democrats Used Filibuster 327 Times While Republicans Used It Once in 2020.”

The New York Post editorialized, “The effort to undo the Senate’s legislative filibuster is an un-American, Constitution-eroding, radical play to nationalize politics by empowering slim and fleeting majorities to institute wide-ranging, generational policies.”

Lots to read here today, but all critically important.  As we’ve said, “knowledge is power.” That concept is more true now than ever before. We are living in perilous times.


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. 


Leftist bigotry thrives, hits Minnesota teachers paychecks

January 3, 2022

School Board authorizes pay increases for non-whites

On January 1, in a post titled, “Remembering the wisdom of Judge Bork as we greet 2022,” we wrote about the latest trendy terms, “Equity” and “Equality.” If you were too busy over the New Year holiday to get to it, it’s crucial to fully comprehend the misappropriation of our language that is invading America’s culture at breakneck speed, by reviewing the link in the following paragraph:

Three and a-half decades ago, with clarity and foresight Judge Robert Bork referred to the crisis we now face, based in the rise of political leftism that intentionally obliterates the definitions of “equality and equity.” The words are further clarified in “The Inequality of ‘Equity,‘ by Ben Shapiro.

The reason for this review will be evident as you grasp the full effect of the insanity now instituted by a school board in Mankato, Minnesota, a town of fewer than 45,000 people. The headline, “Mankato schools vote to allow extra pay for non-white teachers,”* reveals, in the most disgraceful manner, the race-based divisiveness that is invading our nation, taking hold in far-left arenas. Info on Mankato can be found on DataUSA.

Decades after it was outlawed against minorities, race-based discrimination, now targeting whites, has taken on a new life in Minnesota. Leftwing NBC News, in a review of the 2020 election results, characterizes Minnesota as “a solidly blue state in presidential elections and Democrats control the governor’s office and the state House, while Republicans control the state Senate.“ Non-partisan Ballotpedia reveals that senate “control” consists of a single vote. Be wary of where you get your news.

AZ Republic reneges on subscribers third time since Sept.

December 30, 2021

Are sporadic deliveries the new normal? Will bills deduct missing issues?

Following the announcement that there would be no Labor Day delivery to subscribers — ostensibly to give workers the day to spend with family — the Arizona Republic newspaper shut down the print editions for three days over Christmas. The latest insult to its remaining subscribers is the lack of a New Year’s edition, which “will combine the Thursday, Friday and Saturday editions into a single Dec. 30, publication.“ In truth, it’s a cost cutting matter for the failing paper that has long been hemorrhaging subscriptions.

The decisions are not based in magnanimity, rather a ruthless look at the bottom line and a realization the newspaper, alternatively known as the AZ Repugnant (among other less complimentary terms) is about to join this infamous list, and wants to minimize the loss sooner rather than later. Buyouts of contracts and layoffs have been commonplace since the troubles began to mount, resulting in being bought out following being forced to sell its ten-story building and parking garage and the abrupt firing of longtime, Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist, Steve Benson, who it was no longer able to afford. Advertising revenue has plummeted and even stalwarts such as Walgreens Drugs Sunday sale insert and Sprout’s Grocery ads have vanished. The only hope of continuing is to ditch the hardcopy editions and transition to an all digital version, with few costs involved. From there it will be the trash heap of history for the formerly conservative newspaper that lost its way on the path to obliteration as it focused on promoting the illegal alien invasion.

2022 is just days away. Americans are used to instant news rather than day-old rehashes flung on the driveway or walkway.  Any news source readers’ desire is as close as their pocket. We are also able to think and are fed up with skewed, leftist agendized spew being regurgitated via biased coverage passing as news, editorials that could be written by the DNC and columnists who don’t even try to disguise their hatred of conservative elected officials. They lost, and never regained, all sense of rationality when Republican Donald Trump beat scandal-plagued, liar Hillary Clinton, who the Arizona newspaper endorsed and later whimpered, claiming it received death threats for doing so.

In a marriage, when one party welches on their commitment, a divorce ensues. In this case, there is no mention of extending the subscription for the paid-for days or deducting payment the non-delivered issues. This bilking of mostly elderly subscribers, is known as a scam and should be treated as the theft it is.

For in-depth coverage of the dying newspaper industry, this article, “Over 2000 American Newspapers Have Closed in Past 15 Years,” by Douglas A. McIntyre on 24/7 Wall St, is worth your time. We previously used the phrase, “You’ll be smarter among the water cooler crowd,” but there is no longer a water cooler as pandemic-era employees work from home or sit, jobless, collecting government checks the wild spending Biden regime uses to tether Americans to the democrat party.

The Arizona Citizen, later known as the Tucson Citizen, began publishing when Arizona was still a territory. In 1976, the Citizen was sold to Gannett Company, Inc. The last print edition was delivered on May 16, 2009. The digital successor site, TucsonCitizen.com, closed on January 31, 2014. The AZ Repugnant will suffer the same fate.


AZ Republic announces its transition to a former newspaper

December 22, 2021

It was not unexpected from the blatantly leftist, Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating newspaper. The dwindling number remaining readers of what was previously a reliable, conservative newspaper, named the Arizona Republican when it first appeared in 1890, has now proclaimed its own demise.

This Nov. 15, 2021 post, “Arizona Republic admits it’s dying,” followed the unprecedented announcement that it was shutting down home delivery on Labor Day: “In an effort to allow our team time off to spend with their families on Labor Day, there will be no home delivery today. We appreciate your understanding.  Normal delivery will resume Tuesday, September 7th.”

Today, November 22, 2021, there is a new stunner in the form of this pre-Christmas and New Year’s announcement, headlined in the hardcopy, “We won’t have Christmas or New Year’s newspapers.“  The on-line version further insults the remaining readers, with this revised headline, “The Arizona Republic won’t be printing a holiday newspaper. Here’s how to find the latest news and your favorite puzzles, comics.” The inference is the publisher regards readers as mainly dolts who do puzzles and read comics.  It adds, “Customer service hours are limited.” That’s of little significance since the underpaid folks you reach in the Philippines have no control over the decisions made thousands of miles away.

The front page coverage of the Turning Point USA four-day rally in Phoenix, featuring national headliners was dismissed as if it was a clown show instead of thousands of conservative activists; many energized young voters, prepping for the upcoming elections.

The most recent announcement buried on Page 4, says: “This holiday season we are combining our Thursday, Friday and Saturday print editions of The Arizona Republic into a single newspaper.”

This is the newspaper’s ultimate goal. Printing and distribution costs exceed the income from mostly retirement community readers and snowbirds. Digital editions have few costs involved.

Will the newspaper refund the subscription prices?  Not a chance. This is the same newspaper that encourages auto-pay rather than monthly bills, which they are now imposing a $5 monthly fee for mailing.

Beat them to the punch and cancel by calling 800-332-6733. It’s a great way to start the New Year.


“Racist America” captures headlines in failing AZ Republic

December 19, 2021

If you are among the documented few* who still read the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper, you would be met with an entire front section aimed at convincing you that America is a racist nation and our police departments are the enforcers of racist policies.

Ethnicity is the mother’s milk that nourishes the failing newspaper, which it readily admits, by virtue of its hiring practices. A recent headline? “Representing our diverse community is crucial to telling Arizona’s story. Here’s a look at our staff today,” includes a link to a chart detailing the race and gender of the employees. Each of the newspapers in the Gannett cabal has published the same demeaning stats reflective of staff ethnicity and sexual preferences. You’ll notice the comment section is closed.

This morning’s edition cites the U.S. Justice Department’s investigation into Phoenix’ and Louisville, Kentucky’s police departments, “putting all police on notice.” The Biden Justice Department is headed by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, whose website no longer posts crime statistics.

Leftist Barack Obama tried and failed to shuffle Garland onto the U.S. Supreme Court in the waning hours of his presidency. For a potent reminder, former TV newsreader Kari Lake, an Obama donor — now masquerading as a Republican candidate for AZ Governor — advocated on Garland’s behalf in the video included in this fact-filled link, which is crucial reading for desiring to be informed voters.

Our law enforcement officers have become punching bags and are responding by taking early retirement or resigning, which leaves American vulnerable to increasingly violent crime, now committed at alarming rates. The Justice Department Is supposed to uphold the law and protect the constitutional rights of all Americans, not challenge the brave men and women who put their lives on the line as they don their uniforms each day.

The FBI Crime Data Explorer has become politically correct under the OBiden/Harris administration, no longer listing crimes according to the ethnicity of the perpetrators or victims. This is the explanatory statement:

“Since crime is a sociological phenomenon influenced by a variety of factors, the FBI discourages ranking locations or making comparisons as a way of measuring law enforcement effectiveness. Some of this data may not be comparable to previous years because of differing levels of participation over time.”

As Seeing Red AZ noted in this 2013 post: Newspeak was the language George Orwell wrote about in his book “1984,” which was published in 1949. Orwell predicted, “By 2050 — earlier, probably — all real knowledge of Oldspeak will have disappeared.” 

He turned out to be a reliable prophet.

 Leftist network worried about Biden: Seeks 2024 replacement

December 16, 2021

Base abandoning Biden

Although the next presidential election is three years away, democrats are frantically searching for someone to replace inept Joe Biden, who is clearly unfit for the job.  

Chris Cillizza, CNN’s editor-at-large, known as a party toady, has published a list of potential replacements, following on the heels of a New York Times report on the same topic, which is obviously keeping democrats up at night.

He writes, “Combine President Joe Biden’s age (he’ll be 82 shortly after the 2024 election) and his ongoing political struggles (he’s mired in the low 40s in job approval) and you get this: a series of stories examining whether Biden runs again and, if not, who might take his place.”

These are Biden’s historically low and continuing to plummet polling numbers. He doesn’t have enough democrat votes to pass his $multi-trillion ‘Build Back Better’ farce during an election year when even democrats want to steer clear of such lunacy. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is planning to table the spending monstrosity until next year.

VP Kamala Harris is ill-equipped to handle the job. Biden put her in charge of the dangerously open border, but she has done nothing to staunch the flood of illegals surging in record numbers into the United States. She has yet to visit the border, laughingly saying she hasn’t been to Europe either. As key staffers have fled, she’s been busy redecorating her office after working with decorators on the vice-presidential residence.

Yuma, Arizona, has become the major portal for illegal aliens, who continue to arrive from 75 counties worldwide, with many bringing illegal drugs into the U.S. to finance their resettling, as they ruin American lives. Harris’ disapproval ratings rival those of Biden. Only 13 percent of democrat voters said they would support her in 2024 if Biden does not run again.

An analysis of CNN’s list of democrats who could replace Biden is not confidence inspiring, but they hit the dem’s politically correct requirements of being radicals, minorities, females or homosexual. 


CD 9 “GOP” candidate Alex Stovall: A fraud among us

December 10, 2021

Stovall videotaped saying, “The Republican Party is disgusting to me. The stuff that they’re doing should be criminal and they should all be thrown in prisons. ”

Bloviating Alex Stovall claims to be a lot of things. He’s a stockbroker with his own commodities business. He’s also a chaplain — with degrees in theology and divinity — a filmmaker, a model and a PhD candidate, studying psychology with an emphasis on human behavior. Stovall ought to study his own, which is fraught with a bizarre proclivity for deception.

Although Stovall says he served as the “Regional Director for the Southeast Region for BLEXIT, the organization he identifies as “for black Americans who walked away from the democrat party,” there is no mention of that position or Stovall on its website. Professing his “passion is in reforming the systems that are currently broken that have been neglecting and suppressing Arizona residents for decades,” he’s clearly part of the political charade he contends he abhors. BLEXIT was co-founded by conservative political commentator and activist Candace Owens, who Stovall says he would never invite to a Christmas party and Arizonan Brandon Tatum, a former Tucson police officer, linked here on the Rubin Report.

Stovall’s website identifies the political farce as “running for Congress right here in Arizona’s 9th District as a proud American patriot and Republican.” There is no mention of the facts exposed by Gateway Pundit’s investigative reporter Jordan Conradson, including that Stovall is unemployed after being fired by Consumer Cellular, where he answered phone calls. His website states he “helps his brother as an acting caretaker.” His political experience? Nil.

Though an announced candidate, Stovall has not responded to Ballotpedia’s 2022 Candidate Connection survey. The website notes that he ”previously declared his candidacy in Congressional District 7 and withdrew” — before opportunistically switching to CD 9.

National File has also revealed the deceptive Alex Stovall and James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has videotaped him. Watch as bogus Republican Stovall clearly states, “The Republican Party is disgusting,”


With last gasps, AZ Republic leftists prepping for 2022

December 3, 2021

It’s no secret the Arizona Republic is in desperate shape. After losing its building, being sold, functioning with a skeletal staff that voted to unionize, and editor-less ASU J school students trying to keep the sinking raft afloat, the once conservative newspaper that morphed into a Hillary-endorser, is headed for its last roundup. Its hefty circulation decline is evidence of being on life support.

Despite its dire situation, the shriveling newspaper, whose sports section  frequently exceeds the news, is unable to help itself as evidenced by the weeklong Page One series focused on former President Donald Trump using provocative declaration-of-war size headlines. Although feeble, fumbling and stumbling Joe Biden has been in the Oval Office nearly a year, every daily report in the sequence is topped with a photo of…you guessed it…Donald Trump!  Thursday’s effort of the “Democracy In Doubt” series, grandly labeled Part V is ominously headlined, “The World Is Watching.”

The world is, indeed, watching — as deceit has becoming the order of the day while the frail man who is unable to speak coherently, falls asleep at global meetings and appeared to soil himself as he met with the Pope, is given cover. Our economy, which surged under President Trump, has fallen to catastrophic lows while inflation has soared to unconscionable heights, evidenced weekly at the gas pumps. Shortages of basics — from food to toilet paper — have become major concerns.

The ongoing series deriding President Trump, in coordination with the biased editorials, columnists and suspiciously selected letters to the editor are in preparation for the 2022 election cycle. It is a carefully coordinated effort giving the radicals in control at the newspaper their own words to quote as substantiation for whatever they hurl at conservative candidates.

Retiring state Sen. Paul Boyer, a Republicrat who was the lone GOP legislator to vote against the contempt resolution for the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, is worthy of warm coverage since he aligned with democrats more often than with the party he chose to use to his own advantage. Had he been a conservative, instead of meriting slavish praise, Boyer would have been outed for his close association with fellow state Sen. Otoniel “Tony” Navarrete, a District 30 Democrat. Navarrete, an acknowledged pedophile and 2017 founding member of the legislature’s LGBTQ Caucus, resigned after police recorded him graphically apologizing to one of his young male victims. Navarrete has been charged with seven felonies for having sexual contact with minor boys. If convicted he could serve up to 50 years. Photos of the duo are available on National File.

The Trump-hatred is venomous and the double standard is beyond reprehensible.  As an obvious cost-cutting measure, the newspaper recently shut down home delivery…without notice…on Labor Day, ostensibly to give employees the day off with their families.

If you are among the few who still subscribe to this overpriced, putrid garbage masquerading as news…Cancel. Tired of having your intelligence insulted? Cancel! Call 1-800-332-6733. You’ll get someone in the Philippines who is paid 50% less than an American-based employee. 


Shopping for the holidays?  We’re urged to make sure it’s race-based

December 2, 2021

Separatism is the new leftist theme as evidenced by BLM advocating boycotts of white-owned businesses

The diversity-promoting Arizona Republic which bases its hiring on DNA, has written numerous articles extolling the merits of supporting black-owned businesses, through a project known as ‘Buy Black Phoenix.’ This article, headlined, Buy Black Phoenix’ campaign urges support of African-American-owned businesses,’ was given prominence in 2016.

Race-based shopping has been a constant theme. In Nov. 2021 the dying newspaper* ran this report, From bookstores to beauty shops, 25 Black-owned businesses in metro Phoenix.’

There’s nothing that reaches the irrationality of promoting businesses based on immutable characteristics of the owners. We won’t hold our breath waiting for endorsements of freckled, redheaded business owners, or those of Asian or Middle Eastern ethnicities — nor should we. Such absurdities would be equally as insulting both to the business owners and shoppers.

In response to the foolish adherence to DNA as a rational reason for giving your business to a store owned by a specific ethnicity proprietor, Black Lives Matter recently jumped into the fray…not by encouraging shopping in specific stores, but by exclusively urging boycotting “white owned” businesses over the holidays shopping season.

Human Events tops its must-read coverage with this headline, “BLM Calls for Boycott of White Companies” During Holiday Season.” It’s important to be aware of the divisiveness that is given prominence on the LSM…’Lame Stream Media.”

This incendiary race-based venom is directly from the excellent Human Events exposé:

“The boycott is being promoted under the hashtag #BlackXmas and #BuyBlack, among others.

**White-supremacist-capitalism uses policing to protect profits and steal Black life,” an Instagram post by the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation reads. “Skip the Black Friday sales and buy exclusively from Black-owned businesses.”

Seeing Red AZ sends best wishes for a Happy Chanukah (early this year beginning Nov. 28) and Merry Christmas amid the vulgar viciousness. This is the new America, brought to us by the Biden administration. Thank the democrats you know.
