Fox only network to link police murders to vile chant

September 2, 2015

“Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon”

NewsBusters reports on the startling lack of media coverage of police and sheriff’s deputies who are increasingly targeted by cold-blooded killers goaded by the blatantly hypocritical Black Lives Matter movement.

Friday night we were met with news of the unprovoked, execution style ambush of Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth in Texas.  Goforth, 47, the married father of two young children, ages 5 and 12, was shot 15 times as he filled the gas tank of his patrol car. He was murdered by Shannon Miles, 30, a black male.

“We’ve heard black lives matter — all lives matter,” the visibly angry Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman told reporters. “Well, cops’ lives matter, too.”

ABC, NBC and CBS dutifully reported the tragedy during their weekend news broadcasts, while noting the increase of police officer deaths in 2015. Missing from the accounts are the increasing death threats against uniformed officers, which  have become a mainstay at Black Lives Matter rallies, often preceding or following acts of violence against police.

Such was the case on Saturday afternoon when Black Lives Matter activists gathered at Minnesota’s State Fair. As they marched, they referred to police as “pigs” and called for them to “fry” while they were, ironically, protected by police escorts.

This certainly isn’t the first time activists have called for violence against law enforcement officers and had their wish fulfilled. Last December, two NYPD officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, were sitting in their police unit when they were gunned down. The killer posted on Instagram the same vicious chant, “I’m putting pigs in a blanket,” just before he killed the two officers.

On Tuesday morning Illinois police officer Lt. Joe Gliniewicz was murdered. Police are conducting an intensive search for three suspects. Gliniewicz, a married father of four had been an officer for more than 30 years.

In Louisiana, State Trooper Steven Vincent, 44, was gunned down following a traffic stop last week. He was married and the father of a nine-year-old son.

Instead of reporting on the chants of violence at these rallies, the networks instead reported on the less offensive “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” slogan — knowing this mantra was based on a falsehood. Still the network news broadcasts continued to include it in reports without comment or correction, an astounding 156 times in less than a year.


Mount McKinley gets Squaw Peaked

September 1, 2015

Obama purges American history to conform to political correctness

Although it’s being configured as restoring the original native Alaskan name, Obama’s politically motivated name change of Mount McKinley to Denali has taken a questionable route all too familiar to Arizonans.

As the story goes, North America’s tallest mountain got its officially recognized name in 1896, when a prospector, William Dickey, was exploring in central Alaska. When he heard the news that William McKinley, a Republican and Spanish-American war hero, had received his party’s presidential nomination, Dickey named the mountain in his honor. The name was formally recognized in 1917. It should be noted that numerous native peoples of the area had their own names for the massive peak.

In unilaterally switching the name, Obama is effectively thumbing his nose at McKinley, the 25th president, who was born in Ohio and assassinated early in his second term. Ohioans have long pointed with pride at the towering Alaskan mountain named for their native son. Ohio’s congressional delegation, both Republicans and Democrats, have reacted angrily, calling Obama’s actions “deeply disappointing” as well as an “insulting political stunt.“ 

Squaw Peak, a popular hiking site and focal point of central Phoenix, received similar treatment in 2003, when New York-born Democrat Gov. Janet Napolitano determined the word “Squaw” was derogatory.  Using ham-handed tactics not previously seen, she ramrodded  through the name change to Piestewa Peak, honoring Army Pfc. Lori Piestewa — a Hopi tribal member killed in the Iraq War. Napolitano waived the five-year waiting period required for posthumous naming to effect the change and her henchman bullied the chairman of the state geographic names board.

Napolitano later abandoned the governorship to join the Obama regime as the ineffectual chieftain of Homeland Security, noted for her blasé retort when frustrated Arizonans pleaded for actual border security: “Show me a 50-foot fence, and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder.”

Political correctness is a hallmark of the left. Common sense?  Not so much.


Latest Iowa poll: Trump 23, Carson 18; Clinton weak

August 30, 2015

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump holds a commanding 23 percent lead among Iowa caucus participants according to the Bloomberg-Des Moines Register poll released Saturday. Ben Carson moves up to second place at 18 percent. Iowa’s barometer-like importance is tied to the middle America state hosting the first 2016 nomination balloting contest.

Trump was rated favorably by 61 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers and unfavorably by 35 percent in the new survey.

The turnabout in numbers has been surprising. Scott Walker, once the frontrunner in Iowa, has seen his support slip to a mere 8 percent —- placing him in a tie for third place with Ted Cruz. Both men appeared stronger contenders earlier.

Jeb! is on life support in Iowa, scoring below Walker and Cruz with just 6 percent. The amnesty and Common Core supporting dynastic Bush has one of the highest unfavorable ratings among the 17 Republican candidates, and is supported by only 16 percent of those who consider themselves establishment Republicans, the group whose favor he has specifically curried.

On the Democrat side, problem plagued Hillary Clinton has lost a third of her supporters since May. The “smartest woman in the world” has Bernie Sanders, a 74-year-old, self-declared Democrat Socialist, nipping at her heels and trailing her by only 7 points — 37-30. The actual melee will occur if the gaffe-prone VP Joe Biden enters the race, as appears more likely. Biden. and his advisors are meeting with prospective donors, organized labor and other major liberal constituencies to assess his potential support and Clinton’s weaknesses in key early states.

The next GOP debate is scheduled for Sept. 16, at the Reagan Library.  Expect the list to constrict further.

This is the attention-grabbing snapshot of the Bloomberg-Des Moines Register GOP polling numbers:

Anchor babies: The latest numbers are shocking

August 29, 2015

An anchor baby is delivered every 93 seconds in U.S.

In some circles, the term “anchor baby” has become highly charged. Hispanic activists and their amigos in the mainstream media consider it a slur.  Seeing Red AZ views it as accurately descriptive, as evidenced by our post “Ending birthright citizenship = end to anchor babies,” this past week.

The term relates to a gross misinterpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution that has transmogrified into gifting American citizenship to American-born children of illegal alien mothers. It has also spawned an obscene industry known as birth tourism.

The specific provision of the Fourteen Amendment adopted in 1868 rightly provided American citizenship to the American-born children of African-born slaves following emancipation. It was never intended to be misused to convey citizenship to American-born newborns of illegal aliens.

The concept has further expanded to allow these babies to act as conduits for the entire family to facilitate chain migration / family reunification.

With this as background, our “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter,” provides the shocking fact that about one out of every twelve newborns in the United States is now an anchor baby — or the U.S.-citizen child of illegal aliens.

Writing for Breitbart, Julia Hahn presents a revealing and fact filled account in “Census: Anchor baby delivered every 93 seconds.”

If you read only a single article this weekend, make sure this is the one.

Information is power. Use it to confront those who call themselves our Representatives. They are in Arizona campaigning for our votes. Hold their feet to the fire and ask them what they intend to do to keep us from losing our own country to this invasion. These numbers are based on the 2008 Census, so they are actually understated.


Alarming! 100%+ voter registration rates

August 28, 2015

136 counties in 21 states have more registered voters than adult residents

True the Vote, the nation’s leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization, has announced its latest findings in an ongoing effort to reduce outdated records in America’s voter rolls.

136 counties in 21 states were given notices of potential violation of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, requiring election officials to make reasonable efforts to maintain voter rolls. Counties in receipt are demonstrated to have more than 100 percent voter registration at the time of the 2014 Election and have not indicated any significant effort to address the problem in the months following.

“It’s important that engaged voters keep the pressure on election officials to ensure that outdated or ineligible records are quickly addressed,” True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht said. “Bloated voter rolls hurt everyone. Deceased voters aren’t removed, duplicate registrations aren’t revoked and the records of voters who’ve relocated aren’t corrected. Low verification standards, like absence of voter ID, add to the confusion.”

“Bloated rolls create the ideal environment for identity theft and voter fraud.  With the U.S. Justice Department still refusing to set a national standard and enforce federal maintenance requirements, we’re now starting to see entire states come close to showing over 100 percent registration,” Engelbrecht added.

Key Highlights:

  • Who’s the Worst: Kentucky, Michigan and Indiana lead the nation in counties with 100% plus voter registration rates with more than 10 each (total voter registration rate per state)
  • Kentucky – 94%
  • Michigan – 95%
  • Indiana – 92%
  • Becoming an Urban Problem: Larger, suburban counties in Colorado, Indiana, Kentucky and Michigan without a history of 100% plus rates are now over the line
  • 2016: The states represented in this most recent finding account for 305 Electoral College votes –a landslide total

Counties in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia received pre-litigation notices. True the Vote has requested that the counties outline efforts to remove dead, felon, moved or otherwise ineligible voters ahead of the 2016 election season to avoid litigation.

This latest research finding builds upon a body of work that has led to lawsuits against the States of Indiana and Ohio to update voter rolls in 2012.

Seeing Red AZ has addressed the issue of voter fraud several times over the past years. This post,  Voter fraud? “We’re not the police” contains links and a video that are valuable resources on this crucial issue as we head into the 2016 election cycle.

 


Dems to enlist Pope on illegals, voter base expansion

August 24, 2015

Breitbart News carries an intriguing report on the less-than-devout Catholic Democrats in the U.S. Congress who are now looking to Pope Francis for aid in expanding their political base by increasing illegal immigration.

In a first, the Pope is scheduled to address Congress on Sept. 24. He intends to follow that by meeting with a group of Hispanic illegals. Liberal lawmakers hope his advocacy will inspire their colleagues and constituents.

Last year, Francis called the calculated flood of Central American children crossing the border into the U.S. a “humanitarian emergency.” In a June encyclical where he delved into the issue of climate change using the left‘s talking points, Francis cited the “tragic rise” of immigrants fleeing poverty.

The Pope is clearly opposed to capitalism. Earlier this year, using his closest adviser Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, as his spokesman, he issued this statement: “The ideology surrounding environmental issues is too tied to a capitalism that doesn’t want to stop ruining the environment because they don’t want to give up their profits.” 

In May we posted Pope Francis embraces leftist doctrines, in which we noted Francis sounded a lot like Karl Marx, as he called on governments to redistribute wealth and benefits to the poor to help curb an “economy of exclusion.” That was followed by  Pope Francis: “Global Political Authority” needed to tackle climate change. His provocative mastery of Marxist, anti-capitalist buzzwords is disturbing, with redistribution of wealth one of his frequent themes. Yet he does not deny himself the latest technology as he travels the globe like a jetsetter, frequently tweets and even takes selfies. Last year his tweet, “inequality is the root of social evil,” set off a heated debate in which he was  criticized for increasingly driving a wedge between conservatives and the Catholic Church. Francis previously blasted ‘trickle-down’ economics, a basic tenet of President Reagan’s economic policy as a “crude and naive” theory.

Francis clearly relishes promoting radical political positions. The Blaze reported Vatican Officially Recognizes ‘State of Palestine’ in New Treaty, observing he shifted to referring to PLO leader Mahmoud Abbas as the president of the “state of Palestine,” giving authenticity to those who are sworn to the annihilation of Israel.  

The Institute for Works of Religion, often referred to as the ‘Vatican Bank’ manages $8 billion of the church’s worldwide wealth, and investments, as well as 33,000 accounts for clergy and parishes, held in Euros. This is in addition to priceless High Renaissance art collections on display as well as in vast underground storage facilities.

Pope Francis has written, “Migrants and refugees are not pawns on the chessboard of humanity and should be accorded ‘their human dignity’ in the countries where they reside.”

Kevin Appleby, policy director on migration for the pro-amnesty U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in Washington, D.C., said: “What we do know from his record is that it’s an issue close to his heart” and “one of the issues central to his papacy.”

Rather than lecturing the United States, the time is ripe for this political Pope to put his mouth where his money is on his central issue and swing open the doors of Vatican City to accommodate and respect the “human dignity” of the hundreds of thousands of impoverished, uneducated and unwilling to assimilate, North African Muslims fleeing Libya in an effort to reach Italy. Their plight should also qualify as a “humanitarian emergency” demanding immediate action.


Thousands unite to protest Planned Parenthood

August 23, 2015

Nationwide protests against Planned Parenthood were held Saturday in the wake of the release of vile videos showing PP executives coolly haggling over prices in the calculated harvesting and sale of pre-born baby body parts. Pro-Life activists demonstrated at a reported 320 clinics across the country.

In Phoenix hundreds of protestors heard Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, U.S. Reps. Trent Franks and David Schweikert as well as AZ GOP Chairman Robert Graham speak out against the gruesome practices that are funded by tax dollars funneled to the abortion mills of Planned Parenthood by the federal government. Protests took place in several other Valley cities, including Chandler, Tempe and Glendale.

“We call on Congress to end federal funding for Planned Parenthood,” declared Montgomery.

CNS News, citing numbers from Planned Parenthood’s Annual Report, reports PP’s net revenue increased 5% to a total of $1.21 Billion in its organizational fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013. About 45% of that revenue —- $540.6 million —- was provided by taxpayer-funded government ‘health services” grants. Breitbart News’ “Planned Parenthood Annual Report: All About Abortions and Profits,” contains updated 2014 information. 

Although Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider, it cloaks itself as a women’s health care organization.

Seeing Red AZ posted “Planned Parenthood’s gruesome realities in mid-July, revealing the death industry’s deeply embedded roots in Arizona.

The Center for Medical Progress, which released the Planned Parenthood exposés, is to be commended for bringing the macabre truths of this monstrous industry to light via these videos.

It’s past time for the taxpayer-funded money spigot to be turned off.
