AZ Gov. Hobbs signs executive order prioritizing ethnic black hair

March 20, 2023

Political atonement for discriminating against Talonya Adams?

Though Arizona’s public school test scores have lagged behind national scores, and were further negatively impacted by COVID school closures backed by teacher’s union members, democrat Gov. Katie Hobbs has other considerations that she prioritizes as it comes to Arizona‘s children.

Her focus is hair. And not just any hair. Hobbs has prioritized ethnic black hair. Her preposterous Executive Order titled, “Prohibiting Race-Based Hair Discrimination,” dated March 17, 2023 has to be read to be believed.

According to the 2020 U.S. decentennial Census (the most recent available), Black Arizonans comprised fewer than 5 percent of Arizona’s population — but they overwhelmingly vote democrat, so their hair matters to Hobbs.

This shockingly dismal Arizona Schools Report Card made available by the Arizona Department of Education under former Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman, a democrat, heralded the promotion of “equity” as standards. Grades were given short shrift.

State Superintendent of Schools Tom Horn, a Republican who previously served as Arizona’s elected attorney general, is back in charge of Arizona’s schools having won reelection as superintendent. Given his past successes in elevating Arizona’s educational standards and scores, Hoffman’s dismal record will be noted for the failure it was.

Hobbs defeated Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake by less than a single percentage point, 50.3% to 49.6%, which is hardly a mandate for Hobbs who continually wields a Janet Napolitano-style veto pen. That underhanded tactic earned the former governor —an open border advocate — who resigned to join the Obama administration, the nickname “J-N0.” Democrats govern by demagoguery. Republicans produce results.

For Gov. Katie Hobbs to prioritize black hair is absurd, but it‘s clearly a tactic to gain the good will of the black voters she needs to bolster her image after her unsavory involvement in the Talonya Adams saga. Talonya Adams, a black staff attorney and policy advisor was fired by then-senate minority leader Hobbs for wanting to be paid a salary commensurate with her white, male counterparts. Adams was paid $30,000 less.

This brief U.S, District Court order shows an impaneled jury awarded senate staff lawyer Talonya Adams — who represented herself in court — nearly $3 Million dollars after being discriminated against by Katie Hobbs.

Project Veritas posted ‘Disappearing Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate,’ during the 2022 campaign. In it Hobbs said, “I don’t want to talk politics with anyone I don’t know.” That must be the reason she refused to participate in the KAET-TV political debate…the only candidate for any statewide office to ever take that stance since the debates began decades ago.


Wellesley College puts the capital “W” in whining

March 16, 2023

Transgenderism has reached a new pinnacle at toney women’s liberal arts colleges. Bryn Mawr, Mills, Mount Holyoke, Stephens, and, of course, Wellesley College top the lengthy list, which have all fallen in with the trendy sexual bending and embrace of transgenderism that has gained momentum across our fruited plain, as Rush Limbaugh famously referred to the USA. The student newspaper, The Wellesley News (alternatively dubbed The Snooze), has derisively and coarsely taken on college president Paula Johnson for having the temerity to refer to the school as a “Historically Women’s College.”

Though disparaging the school’s president, a featured article is titled, “How to get girls to consider women’s colleges,” putting its obviously convoluted perspective on display. It’s all about money.

Celebrating “Almost Presidents Day” an earlier report pays homage to Hillary Clinton and features the Holy HRC Candle.

Mangled Mitch McConnell remains MIA following fall March 13, UPDATE

March 10, 2023

3/13/23: Though scant information has been made available regarding his condition we are now told that McConnell also broke a rib in addition to the concussion he suffered. Released from the hospital today, he is not going home, but has been moved to an “inpatient rehabilitation facility.”

After suffering a concussion during fall requiring hospitalization Wednesday evening, 81-year-old Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) remains in the hospital “for a few days of observation and treatment,” according to his staff. Falling at that advanced age is far more serious than even a decade earlier. Mayo Clinic provides a definitive report on the causes and risks associated with older patients in such circumstances. McConnell required surgery in 2019 after suffering a fall at home resulting in a fractured shoulder. At that time his recovery took several weeks. McConnell has a history of heart problems and had triple bypass surgery in 2003.

Now, 16 years past normal retirement age, Mitch McConnell is the longest-serving Senate leader in history. First elected to the Senate in 1984, McConnell is Kentucky’s longest-elected senator.

In his absence, Minority Whip Sen. John Thune (R-SD) will assume the GOP leadership position. He’s a generation younger than McConnell. The average age of the 118th Congress is 58 years old. Scroll down through Fiscal Note for a definitive list of members of congress and their ages as of February 6, 2023. Lydia Stowe has assembled a fact-filled reports.

An interesting fact no one seems inclined to clarify: The base senate salary is $193,400 yearly, yet McConnell’s net worth is $22,841,026. Ballotpedia has the names, facts and figures:

Wokeism exposed by the brilliant Victor Davis Hanson

March 4, 2023

No amount of flattery is sufficient to describe the national treasure that is exemplified by prolific author Dr. Victor Davis Hanson, whose impressive credentials include being a distinguished fellow of the Center for American Greatness. He is also a classicist and historian at the Hoover Institution and Stanford University. Today we present his most recent column which is, as we have previously noted with others, “guaranteed to make us all smarter.”

Regardless of the need to change the air filters, trim some trees or fill the gas tank, make time to read his most recent column, “The Woke Wrecking Machine.”  You’ll be wiser for doing so.

Wokeism is alive and well at Arizona State University, where president Michael Crow‘s base salary is $809,846. Crow received a $90,000 bonus for the 2021-2022 school year in addition to numerous other perks, including housing and vehicle use, and bonuses for achieving additional goals, according to this report in ASU‘s State Press. Crow’s wife, Dr. Sybil Francis, is also on the payroll as reported by the Phoenix New Times in 2017.

Pay attention. This epidemic rivals COVID, but there is no immunization.

Is Biden fit to run for a second term?  Evidence points to emphatic NO!

February 21, 2023

Republican Congressman Ronny Jackson, M.D., (TX-CD 13) has credentials galore, including having served as a United States Navy rear admiral (ret.), and as White House physician to Barack Obama and Donald Trump. Previously, he was in charge of the White House Medical Unit under George W. Bush. Dr. Jackson has now accused the Biden administration of ‘covering up’ Joe Biden’s cognitive decline, asserting that his “ability to think and reason is GONE!” Following a physical exam last week, which the White House says found that Biden “remains a healthy, vigorous, 80-year-old male,” and is “fit for duty,” Jackson stated that Americans “learned nothing” from the announcement. This withholding of pertinent information should concern all Americans.

Race concealed when shooter is black and victims are white

February 14, 2023

A black gunman on a murderous, clearly raced-based rampage at Michigan State University Monday killed three students and seriously wounded five…all white, setting off an hours-long manhunt as terrified students hid in classrooms and cars.

At a news conference, police identified the gunman as 43-year-old Anthony McRae — who later killed himself — blandly noting “he was not a student or employee and had no affiliation with the university.” McRae was on probation for 18 months until May 2021 for possessing a loaded, concealed gun without a permit, according to the state Corrections Department

It’s time to acknowledge the report would headline the race of the shooter if he was white and the victims were black.

Homosexuality gets nod of approval from church leaders

February 6, 2023

Leftist Associated Press is not our usual go-to spot, or a place to direct our readers, but this headline is a compelling attention-grabber: “Pope, Anglican, Presbyterian leaders denounce anti-gay laws.”

The article included this odd quote: “Pope Francis, the head of the Anglican Communion and a top Presbyterian minister together denounced the criminalization of homosexuality and said gay people should be welcomed by their churches.”

We are not familiar with efforts by churches to exclude anyone from religious services, “criminalize” them or restrict their participation within houses of worship. For the religious leaders to zero in on this topic is insulting to all of their church members. Although the Church of Scotland allows same-sex marriages, Catholic teaching holds that gay people must be treated with dignity and respect accorded others, though homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered.” The Biblical city of Sodom was destroyed due to the prevalence of sodomy.

According to Catholic Answers, the Catholic Church teaches that such acts are always violations of divine and natural law. An explicit condemnation is found in the book of Leviticus (18:22, 20:13): “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination…If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.” 

It’s 2023. No one Is advocating death, but abstinence, in accordance with God’s law. Has political correctness caused religious leaders to abandon or forget their moral duty?

Dennis Prager defines LGBTQ+ ‘Pride’ as Totalitarian

February 1, 2023

As those who have read his thought-provoking books and listen to his nationally syndicated radio show know, Dennis Prager is a reliable conservative voice. His biography ends with these words: “When Dennis Prager speaks, America listens.”

With this intro, Seeing Red AZ brings our readers Prager‘s most recent, enlightening column, “LGBTQ+ ‘Pride’ Is Totalitarian,” On occasion we have posted informative columns under the heading, “Weekend Reading Guaranteed To Make You Smarter.” The column we’re directing our readers to today is too timely and pertinent to wait five days to read.

Democrats are eager to tell us what they stand for

January 22, 2023

Dems unified in desire to defund the police:

…and on the topic of abortion?

Dems all agree: The decision should be made between “the woman and her doctor.” Arizona’s far left Gov. Katie Hobbs (then a candidate) and radical Sen. Mark Kelly both appear in this video, mouthing the same words, that have been hard-wired into democrat‘s heads.

Ruth McGregor an odd choice to restore AZ election confidence

January 8, 2023

Following a November 2022 Election Day (and into the night) debacle with long lines of frustrated voters and ballots that didn’t print correctly, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors announced its intention to get to the bottom of the countless snafus. “This Board of Supervisors has always been committed to continuous improvement. When things don’t work, we find out why. Today we are announcing an important step in our efforts to get to the bottom of the printer issues that affected some Vote Centers,” the board said in a statement.

The board’s bizarre choice to lead the investigation is former Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Ruth V. McGregor, 80, a lifelong democrat. She was appointed to the Arizona Supreme Court in 1998 by Republican Gov. Jane Dee Hull, a longtime friend. The women met when they were both teachers married to medical doctors.

Voting for Republicans who could ultimately be in charge of elections is no longer an assurance of integrity, as we’ve seen with Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, an opportunistic party switcher.

Faulty printers created ballots that were too light to be processed by some tabulators and caused backups at polling places on general election day and into the night. Despite problems with the ballots, the county claimed all votes were counted, and everyone who stayed in line at polling places was given the opportunity to vote.

Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates, elected as a Republican, called a recent court ruling against GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, “A win for Arizona voters and American democracy.”

Maricopa County Republicans need a new crop of candidates, who actually possess conservative principles.
