Diversity: Our strength or demise?

September 16, 2018

Hyphenated Americans display dual allegiances, lack full commitment to the United States

Today SRAZ is taking Patrick J. Buchanan up on his invitation to share his columns.  It was difficult choosing which one to use, but because we are Tucker Carlson fans, the decision went in favor of his displaying the temerity to inquire of the left, “How, precisely, is diversity our strength? Since you’ve made this our new national motto, please be specific.”

The question was raised after he played clips of Democrat politicians reciting what has become an fundamental ‘truth’ of modern liberalism.

You’ll findThe Unpardonable Heresy of Tucker Carlson,” to be worthy of your time and attention.

This video excerpt of Tucker Carlson’s show features startling demographic numbers. In 1990, the small community of Storm Lake, Iowa had a mere 1.1% foreign born population. Today over half of the residents don’t speak English at home.

Carlson interviews U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, (R-PA), the former mayor of Hazelton, Pennsylvania.  In 2000, less than 2% of the population was Hispanic. Today, fewer than 20 years later, Hazelton is majority Hispanic, thanks to mass illegal immigration.

Hamtramck, Michigan had two Bangladeshi residents in 1990. Today the city is majority Muslim.  

Diversity is obviously not our strength, since we see it overpowering the predominant culture without any input from the citizens whose families have resided in these communities for generations — many with immigrant family roots themselves.  The difference lies in the fact that previous generations of immigrants came to the U.S. legally, processed through Ellis Island (from 1892 – 1954), and were grateful for the opportunity to be Americans. They learned English, prioritized education for their children and accepted our nation’s history as their own. That adaptation was known as Americanization — unfortunately a passé concept today.

Commemorating Sept. 11, 2001: Teach your children the truth

September 11, 2018

 

Politically correct schools are not teaching about this carnage

Today marks the 17th year since 2,973 people were murdered by terrorists who commandeered two commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City. Another airliner crashed into the Pentagon. The death toll includes 40 passengers and crew members aboard the fourth hijacked plane, United 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as courageous passengers rushed the cockpit.

 Along with our American citizens, people from 90 other countries were viciously slaughtered in the attacks committed by Islamo-fascist extremists.

These monsters,* here on easily exploitable foreign student visas, were able to commit this evil against Americans on our own soil because our government deplorably failed to enforce our borders, laws, and national sovereignty. This malfeasance has continued. Only President Trump, who ran and was elected on his commitment to a border wall, has  made this issue a resonating theme.

Far-left AZ Democrat David Garcia is currently campaigning for governor on his opposition to both a wall and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which he has stated his intent to dismantle.

In these times where striking unionist teachers walk out on over 800,000 Arizona students for a week, the obligation falls on parents and grandparents to teach the facts of September 11th. They are not getting this important information in school. It doesn’t fit the left’s ‘celebration of diversity’ playbook and focus on “Islamophobia.”

Yet even left-of-center NPR acknowledges, according to one survey, only about 20 states include anything in depth about the events of that fateful day in their high school social studies curriculum. And when they are taught, it’s often through a narrow lens. Education Week an educrat publication headlines: “Majority of States’ Standards Don’t Mention 9/11.”

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum can be seen here It’s Teach + Learn pages are critically important since too many young adults today are abysmally lacking basic information about the single deadliest incident in the history of the United States.

Philosopher George Santayana is noted for saying, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Today’s PC educrats reject his wisdom.

 *H/T Creeping Shiria depicts the murderous Muslim extremists, referring to the barbarous hijackers as the “Magnificent 19.”


Yes, illegals do commit more crimes than citizens

August 24, 2018

Every crime committed by an illegal alien is one that wouldn’t have occurred if that alien wasn’t in the United States in the first place*

Bogged down with busy schedules, most of us go blithely through our lives without thinking about the scourge of violent crime that now permeates our country.  When high profile cases occur, they shake us into acknowledging the hideous truth once again.

The discovery this week of the body of missing Iowa University coed Mollie Tibbetts shook us back to consciousness. The fact that her stalking murderer was an illegal alien from Mexico living in the United States for an estimated 7 years who confessed to the crime, woke us to reality. This narrative has been repeated too often to ignore, as Federation for Immigration Reform reveals.

Yet that is exactly what we are told to do. Anything else exposes bigotry. When conservative U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Kelli Ward linked the fact that the 20-year-old psychology major’s death at the hands of  Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24, by “multiple sharp force injuries,” exposed the lack of commitment to a border wall by Arizona’s current senators, she was blasted in the local newspaper. This is a truth that dare not be spoken.

Thursday’s edition of Arizona’s sports and entertainment contrivance passing as a disseminator of news used the USA Today insert to declare in oversized type, “NO…immigrants don’t commit more crimes than US-born people.”

Peter Kirsanow an attorney and President of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights disputes the USA Today premise.

His superb National Review article,Illegal Immigrants and Crime,” exposes the way the left manipulates statistics, with glaring omissions of a multitude of criminal activities that go unreported as the costly crimes they are.

 Kirsanow cites Arizona Department of Corrections data spanning 1985–2017, as John Lott, President of the Crime Prevention Center, calculates that illegal immigrants in Arizona aged 18-35, for example, are 250 percent more likely to commit crimes than young U.S. citizens. Further, such illegal immigrants commit more serious crimes — such as murder, robbery, and sexual assault.

Another study included in his report points out that in Arizona, California, and New York, illegal aliens are convicted of homicide at dramatically higher rates than are native-born citizens and legal residents.

Steven A. Camarota, Director of Research for the Center for Immigration Studies substantiates those statistics inNon-Citizens Committed a Disproportionate Share of Federal Crimes, 2011-16,” concluding 21% of those convicted of non-immigration crimes were non-citizens — 2.5 times their share of the population.

The Heritage Foundation,* whose quote we used under today’s headline, has a corroborating commentary,What the Media Won’t Tell You About Illegal Immigration and Criminal Activity,” by Hans A. von Spakovsky, Senior Legal Fellow and Grant Strobl, Chairman of Young Americans for Freedom.

The liberal media has an open borders agenda. Sociologists, criminologists, researchers and statisticians deal in facts. It’s time border state Arizonans elect a U.S. Senator with an acknowledged commitment to joining with President Trump in protecting American citizens. We haven’t been represented by John McCain, Jeff Flake, and previously Jon Kyl, who have concentrated their efforts on amnesty for illegals.


Pipe dream of AZ “blue wave” hyped in NC

August 14, 2018

Associated Press’ liberal skew on AZ politics in NC news

In a review of news reports, it was surprising to find that distant Raleigh, North Carolina, has an interest In Arizona’s political scene — or more specifically the attempt to ignite the leftist vote here.  Headlined, “Democrats ramp up political push to win in GOP-heavy Arizona,” the report gives a voice to Democrat desperation, reeling in the face of the election of President Donald Trump.

The skewed news account attempts to present a hopeful outlook — from a liberal perspective — albeit 2,000 miles away.

SRAZ exposed AP’s Stylebook attempts to alter the English language in 2013 in our post,Winston Smith: Alive and well at Associated Press.” At that time we compared the AP’s revisions to George Orwell’s acclaimed book, “1984.”

Nothing has changed at AP.


Kyrsten Sinema’s vicious slurs aimed at women ignored

July 23, 2018

Double standard exists when denigrating women. Men get taken down, women get elected

In today’s highly charged, politically-correct world with celebrities and politicians falling in the wake of the #MeToo movement, heavy footed legislator Paul Mosely (R-LD 5) has more problems than putting pedal to the metal and bragging (video) about his excessive speeds to the officer who pulled him over. Claiming legislative immunity he was given a warning. That loophole has recently been rescinded.

He also has strong faith-based views about women and their place, which is in the home — not in the work force — reportedly asking why working mothers aren’t home with their children. 

But his comments, for which he has apologized, pale in comparison to those of Kyrsten Sinema, who previously was elected to the same Arizona state legislature. Her coarse and foul-mouthed, stunningly offensive remarks viciously denigrating stay-at-home moms received little attention:

An ardent supporter of same-sex marriage, she mockingly blasted women who devote themselves to their families rather than working outside the home. Her crude comment was:

 “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f**k are we really talking about here?” Following the spirit of unity Dems claim to embrace, Sinema then proceeded to deride conservatives as “Neanderthals.”

Sinema, whose 2016 Congressional primary victory was enthusiastically cheered by the Advocate, an LGBT site, praising her for “moving one step closer to being the first openly bisexual member of Congress.”

An atheist who refused to take her oath of office with her hand on the Bible, she now occupies that congressional seat and is running for the U.S. Senate. 

Formerly a Green Party candidate who sent May Day messages to the Communist Worker newspaper, Sinema has re-crafted herself as a soft spoken, aisle-crossing moderate. Democrats, eager to grab a crucial senate seat, have heavily funded her campaign.  According to the June 30. 2018 FEC filings, she has raised $9,563,041.22, spent $6,446,752.43 — much of it on ubiquitous TV ads showcasing her newly crafted soft-spoken image. The hard left liberal still has nearly $5 and a half million cash on hand. 

Don’t be fooled into surrendering a key senate seat to this candidate whose extreme views represent few Arizonans. The senate is entrusted with confirming federal judges and U.S. Supreme Court nominees.

Along with this stellar list of endorsers, Seeing Red AZ strongly supports principled conservative Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. SenateHer primary opponents Martha McSally (often referred to on this site as Sally McCain), and 86-year-old Joe Arpaio refuse to debate her. (video) Your donations will help her stay competitive against the out-of-state money funding Leftist Sinema.


Arizona is Politico’s blue “Pick State” in mid-terms

July 16, 2018

Politico, the DC journal that should more accurately be named “LeftLurchio,” is almost as ecstatic as the AZ Repugnant newspaper over what they view as 2018 Democrat prospects here in Arizona.

Instead of cataloging the obvious bias, it’s fair to ask, “What brought our red state to this sorry situation?” It doesn’t take much mental wrangling to lasso the simple answer: The rank “stewardship” of McCain, McFlake, McDucey and McKyl.

SRAZ’s Sunday post,Obvious cracks in AZ Corp. Com. Candidate Glassman,” detailed the candidacy of slickster Rodney Glassman, a Democrat more adept at switching political parties than accruing accomplishments. Glassman is now an opportunistically newly minted Republican, running as a conservative for the AZ Corporation Commission, which sets rates on Arizona‘s public utilities. He has inexplicably been able to secure the endorsements of GOP office holders when, Jim O’Connor, a far better qualified, actual conservative candidate is in the race.

Even though pro-illegal invasion author Ethan Epstein was so eager to get this written, he errs on pertinent facts,* our best advice is to read,Is THIS the year Arizona finally turns blue? on an empty stomach.

* Overwhelmed by his duties as governor, Raul Castro left office mid-term to accept an ambassadorship to Argentina offered by President Jimmy Carter. The actual facts are available in,,Gov. Ducey overstates short-termer Castro’s impact on Arizona.

Epstein praises single-term Sen. Jeff Flake, neglecting to mention that he won the senate seat by a slim 3% margin, and opted not to run for reelection due to abysmal 18 percent approval ratings for his incessant bashing of President Trump in a state that carried the president to victory, awarding him all of its electoral votes.

Skewing “facts” might make an interesting story, but it doesn’t obscure the truth.


SCOTUS hands Trump travel vindication, Flake fumes

June 27, 2018

The U.S. Supreme Court handed a major victory to the Trump administration Tuesday. The justices rejected a challenge to President Trump’s September 2017 travel moratorium  –- referred to by the leftist media as a “travel ban” -– temporarily restricting immigration to the United States by citizens from the countries, of Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, and government officials from Venezuela — placing national security concerns ahead of political correctness.

Jeff Flake, who opted out of running for a second senate term due to his abysmal 18% approval rating, goes apoplectic whenever President Trump scores a victory.

Spinning the bogus rhetoric of the radical left, open borders supporter Flake would have us believe the High Court instituted a Muslim ban.

“It is constitutional, it’s just not very wise,” he said. “It was certainly targeted at Muslim countries. We don’t win the war on terrorism by making this a religious test. So I just don’t think it helps that way.”

Who knew Venezuela and North Korea were Muslim countries?

This case is among the court’s most important this term and the latest in a string of 5-4 decisions in which the conservative side of the court prevailed, bolstered by the addition of Justice Neil Gorsuch last year.

Despite Jeff Flake doing Barack Obama’s bidding in 2016, escorting liberal Democrat Merrick Garland to meetings with key senators attempting to garner votes for his confirmation, Obama’s attempt at a lame duck Supreme Court appointment was derailed. Newly elected President Donald Trump appointed Appellate Judge Gorsuch to fill the seat left vacant by the unexpected death of conservative icon Justice Antonin Scalia.

If Republicrat Jeff Flake had gotten his way, the dramatic leftward lurch of the Supreme Court, would have had irreversible, long range negative consequences.

Here is the non-too-bright, perpetually grinning Flake making a mockery (brief video) of the judicial nomination process.

We have the opportunity to replace inept RINO Flake by sending principled conservative Dr. Kelli Ward to the U.S. Senate. Your donations will help her stay competitive against the out-of-state and lobbyist money funding her Primary Election opponent Martha McSally — frequently referred to on this site as Sally McCain — and General Election opponent, radical Leftist Kyrsten Sinema.
