Phx’s tyrannical Mayor Stanton sabotages 1st Amendment

August 17, 2017

Wants to silence President Trump, shut down Aug. 22 Phoenix Convention Center rally

Feeling energized after arbitrarily deciding that a Phoenix street name he found offensive needed to go, though the longtime residents who lived there steadfastly petitioned to retain it, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton is back, bat in hand.  This time he’s taking on the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the President of the United States. This big, bad lawyer should know better, but his ego has swelled to the point of enveloping his brain. 

Liberal Democrat Stanton has now announced that he’s “disappointed” that President Donald Trump plans to rally supporters in Phoenix next week. “’It is my hope that more sound judgment prevails and that he delays his visit,’ Stanton said. In fact, Stanton ludicrously links the visit and request for the president to “delay his plans” to visit Phoenix “as the nation is still healing from the tragic events in Charlottesville.”

Leaving no room for doubt as to his skewed ideology Stanton adds that if Trump is coming to Phoenix to announce a pardon for former Maricopa County sheriff Arpaio — now 85 years old and potentially facing a 6-month sentence for carrying out his duties — “then it will be clear that his true intent is to enflame emotions and further divide the nation,” ridiculously claiming  a “pardon would amount to an endorsement of racism.”  A federal judge ruled that Arpaio’s officers had racially profiled Hispanics, a charge Arpaio denied.

That’s the mantra of liberals, who have taken to heart Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s tactic ofnever allowing a serious crisis to go to waste.  He made the statement as chief of staff for Barack Obama.

Radical leftist CD 3 U.S. RepRaul Grijalva (read the linked Jerry Kammer exposé revealing his Saul Alinsky roots) will be leading a band of leftist protesters outside the Phoenix Convention Center. Grijalva once called for a boycott of Arizona, a job killer for his own constituents, many of whom work in the service industries.

Stanton is obviously laying the groundwork for grander ventures, having filed for the position of Secretary of State, often the gateway to the Arizona Governor‘s Office. At the beginning of the 2017-2018 reporting period, he was already sitting atop over a $ half million — $510,150.39, to be exact — though no current donors are listed. Equality Arizona, a local LGBTQ advocacy group, was the recipient of $1,000 for an event table.  Don’t be surprised if slippery Stanton ditches the SOS pursuit for an office with more heft.  He’s obviously covered all contingencies by naming his campaign “Stanton for Arizona.”

For a memory refresher, wander back to 2011 to see who Greg Stanton actually is.


The curious case of black discrimination against conservative blacks

August 12, 2017

It would seem the National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. would be among the least likely places for discrimination to flourish, but that assumption would be incorrect.

Larry Elder, writes a masterful column on the topic, in which he concludes the exclusion of exceptional men such as Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams explains why “there’s no serious discussion in the black community about government dependency; school choice; the damage done by high taxes, excessive regulation and laws like minimum wage; and why blacks should rethink their allegiance to the Democratic Party.”

The Democrat Party (SRAZ’s preferred term) depends on robotic support from those who should know better by now. The lure of a free cell phone or the hope of a secure future without working for it are part of the conspiracy that, for decades has held too many minorities down.

Over fifty years ago, Democrat Pres. Lyndon Johnson’s “War on Poverty” ignited the decline by replacing fathers with welfare checks. Since then, taxpayers have spent more than $22 trillion fighting Johnson’s war. Pres. Ronald Reagan, who understood that the welfare state perpetuates itself by rewarding dependency, later said, “We declared war on poverty and poverty won.”

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and economists, distinguished professors, and gifted authors Dr. Thomas Sowelll and Dr. Walter Williams all came from the depths of poverty, but possessed great minds that led them to conservatism, and provided them the pathway to influence countless Americans of all ethnicities.

Until what we considered his inadvisable retirement in 2016 at age 86, the brilliant Thomas Sowell was Seeing Red AZ’s go-to columnist, as we frequently posted his articles under the heading, “Weekend Reading Guaranteed to Make You Smarter.”

Do yourself a favor and take time to read Larry Elder’s exposé:The Shameful Blackout of Thomas, Sowell and Williams.”

 


Obamacare provider exits, insured left high and dry

August 8, 2017

AARP and others thank ASS for a nightmare scenario

Sunday’s Arizona Republic newspaper carried a dramatic full-page ad, white background with stark black letters declaring:

Thank you

Senator

McCain

The rest of the text is blue:

for putting patients first

and voting

against the

Senate health

care bill.

The lower third of the page included the names and logos of sixteen health related organizations representing various diseases and, of course, the Obamacare supporting AARP. The flashy show of appreciation to Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS), was in regard to his obviously practiced and intended to shock, Roman emperor Caligula-style thumbs down vote against the gladiator begging for mercy in the arena. In this case the victims are the American people sold a bill of rotten goods.

ASS has never recovered from his own failed 2008 presidential bid, exacerbated by Donald Trump’s stunning victory. Casting the deciding vote to derail the Republican effort was the self-described Maverick’s ultimate revenge.

Nevada’s Insurance Commissioner Barbara Richardson issued this statement on Monday, announcing that Anthem, the largest provider of Blue Cross Blue Shield plans in the country, would pull out of the state’s 2018 individual insurance exchanges under the Affordable Care Act. (Obamacare)

When Obama’s lips are moving you can be sure he’s lying. President Trump will survive the petty ASS’s vote. Can the same be said about the people of Nevada?


McCain single-handedly kills GOP effort to repeal Obamacare

July 28, 2017

McCain has written his own obituary

The Arizona Republic has gone mute. John McCain, the newspaper’s favorite obstructionist, a phony Republican who has spent his entire career in Washington colluding with Democrats, is no longer on the front page.  The massive photos and oversize headlines are gone, though John McCain isn’t.  Has he finally disappointed the left-leaning, Hillary Clinton and amnesty-supporting newspaper? His name has been obliterated from its pages this morning.  The only mention in the entire front section is a column on page 12 that was obviously written before he led the Republicans off the health care cliff and preserved the debacle known as Obamacare.

Nearly 81 and suffering from an aggressive form of brain cancer, John McCain was hailed a hero for returning to the U.S. Senate to cast a vote with Republicans. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell held up a vote on the bill waiting for McCain to arrive. He was acclaimed for hopping a private jet to support the party under whose banner he ran and was first elected to the U.S. House in 1982 — 35 long years ago.

Yet in a 51-49 vote that finally took place at 2 a.m. this morning, John McCain cast the deciding vote to kill the repeal. Republicrats Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) had already signaled they’d be voting with the Democrats, once again. It was John McCain’s opposition vote that sealed the deal. A jealous, perpetually angry and petty man, McCain doesn’t want to give President Trump the repeal which was a hallmark of his victorious campaign.

“It is time to move on,” McConnell said after the vote.

Senate Minority Leader Democrat Charles Schumer with whom McCain and Jeff Flake partnered on the Gang of Eight amnesty bill, smugly clucked, “We are not celebrating. We are relieved.”

The next time Seeing Red AZ writes about this despicably arrogant double-crosser will be when he draws his last breath.  To most Republicans, he’s already dead.


Elvia Diaz or Russell Pearce: Who’s the hate monger?

July 19, 2017

The leftwing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic outdid itself with a hate-laden, incendiary screed passing itself off as an editorial.  Elvia Diaz, the heir apparent to long-in-the-tooth Linda Valdez, must have missed her dose of Prozac as she took to the keyboard in a venomous rant against Russell Pearce. The threatening headline reads, “You’ve got our attention, Russell Pearce, and we’re ready for you.”  Whether the readiness includes more than words is left to speculation.

Who is Russell Pearce? He’s the former Arizona Senate President who has dedicated his life to others. A brief overview includes serving as a Maricopa County Deputy Sheriff, promoted to Chief Deputy, Justice of the Peace and pro tem judge. He served in the military. Pearce has been the director of state agencies and is now Chief Deputy of the Maricopa County Treasure’s Office. He was also instrumental in the passage of Arizona’s SB1070. As you read his full and impressive bio, it becomes clear this is a man who stands head and shoulders above the crowd. 

What has Diaz so riled up is the fact that the respected investigative and  legal watchdog Judicial Watch and Pearce have joined forces requesting Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich sue the state Board of Regents for skirting a recent Arizona Court of Appeals decision denying illegal aliens in-state tuition rates.

In Diaz’ fantasy world, the illegals have morphed into venerated “immigrants” and “dreamers.”  And patriot Pearce?  He is worthy of a voluminous assault, exemplifying a new low in journalistic standards. Here are a few examples taken directly from the editorial with Diaz’ smiling photo smugly attached:

Russell Pearce is described in the opening sentence as the man “behind Arizona’s infamous, anti-immigrant law…we thought we sent to the depths of irrelevancy.”

Pearce, she construes, “Is attempting a comeback, with his divisive and corrosive rhetoric clearly intact.” Because he has worked and earned retirement in the state legislature, law enforcement, and the judicial system and he doesn‘t think Arizona’s taxpaying citizens should be forced to underwrite illegals by gifting them with  in-state tuition,  Diaz refers to him as a “disgraced, triple-dipping bigot.”

Diaz goes on, “It’s a mistake to dismiss Pearce as the lunatic, publicity-hungry politician some Arizonans love to loathe.” At least she conceded it’s only “some“ loathers. Most of us regard the man whose personal motto is “faith, family freedom — above all else,” with respect.

The diatribe ends with this sunny thought, “The stars have aligned in his favor. Donald Trump’s election to the White House makes it all too plain that people like Pearce remain in our midst.

We can’t become too distracted with Trump to ignore them. We must remain ready to fight their kind of intolerance.”

Long known to be in the grasp of death throes, the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) continues to insult its dwindling reader base.

In the skewed thinking of the radical left, it’s intolerant to want to secure our border and deny undeserved benefits to invaders. They are poised to fight for the hordes over our own citizens.


Pope “slapped in the face” by Trump’s climate change exit

June 2, 2017

So let’s get this straight. The man who is the spiritual leader of the Catholic Church’s estimated 1.2 billion adherents, doesn’t have enough to keep him busy.  Meddling in American politics takes up time. He also dabbles in science. Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, head of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, which has hosted numerous international conferences on climate change, is not a fan of President Donald Trump. Previously discussing the Climate Change accord entered into unilaterally by Barack Obama without seeking senate authorization — and the likelihood that Trump would withdraw from the pact — Sanchez Sorondo said,  “If he really does withdraw, it would be a huge slap in the face for us.”

On Wednesday acting in the best interests of Americans, Trump did exactly that.

The Rome-based,  liberal, pseudo-scientific chorus has grown. This past March, Cardinal Peter Turkson, the pope’s point man for the environment, immigration and development, urged Trump to listen to “dissenting voices,” and reconsider his position on climate change.

Now that the U.S. has officially exited the Climate Change accords, Sanchez Sorondo said he believed the U.S. oil lobby was behind the decision and that the industry had “maneuvered” Trump. A withdrawal, said the Bishop “would not only be a disaster but completely unscientific.“ With sarcasm dripping from every word,  he asserted that “saying we need to rely on coal and oil is like saying that the earth is not round. It is an absurdity dictated by the need to make money.”

Vatican Inc. is a massive, wealthy business with astronomical assets, treasures, and its own political agenda.

The relationship between the pope, his minions and Donald Trump has been contentious since the conservative businessman first entered the presidential race. Pope Francis tried to bully Trump into submission on his campaign pledge to build a wall to secure our southern border, which the globalist pope claims to abhor — though he lives within the confines of Vatican City guarded by its own army of Swiss Guards, behind massive 50-foot-tall, ten-feet thick walls surrounding the impenetrable Vatican fortress.

In Feb. 2016, the pope went so far as to claim the Republican front-runner, “Was not a Christian.” On a return flight to Rome from a trip to Mexico, the pope said: “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”

Trump, at a campaign event, responded swiftly, saying, “For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful. No leader, especially a religious leader, has the right to question another man’s religion or faith,” Trump said.

Once again Donald Trump was right. He appears to be on a roll. His obligation to is America. The pope should stick to matters involving his own church.


Top Dem praises McCain’s efforts against Pres. Trump

May 15, 2017

If you’re a conservative Republican who has wondered whether “mavericky” Democrat colluder, John McCain has ever had a “finest hour,” wonder no more.

Democrat U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking minority member on the House Intelligence Committee, recently offered high praise for Arizona Republicrat John McCain, saying his strong criticism of President Trump marks McCain’s “finest hour.”

The Friday interview on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” can be seen on The Hill. Interestingly, YouTube advises the video has been removed.

“I think frankly this is John McCain’s finest hour,” Schiff said during an appearance with Maher. “I wish we had more Republicans in the House, or maybe even one in the House, who is willing to follow his example.”

McCain has been adamant in his calls for an independent commission to investigate Russia’s purported efforts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election, as well as the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Moscow. There is no evidence of either, but facts are insignificant to the still smarting, failed presidential candidate John McCain, who made it clear he would not vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump. McCain’s underling Jeff Flake also refused to vote for Trump, saying,Trump can’t win and shouldn’t win.”

Schiff used McCain’s words to pitch the need to reverse the Republican majority congress, stressing the importance of a Democrat controlled House or Senate or both because, “this president needs a restraint.”

McCain is obviously more than ready to help Democrat Schiff in his quest. And Jeff Flake? Arizonans should commit Flake’s six words to memory and apply them to him as he runs for a second six-year senate term in 2018. Arizonans deserve to have an actual principled Republican — not Hillary supporters — representing them when they vote for a candidate with an “R” following their name on the ballot.
