Constitutional Freedom denied to AZ teams owner Robert Sarver

September 24, 2022

The United States is unique among nations in that our constitution guarantees freedom of speech via the First Amendment, which specifically states:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Nowhere do those words, drafted in 1789 — fundamental to the Bill of Rights by James Madison — a Virginia representative who later became the fourth U.S. President, specify that the speech must be agreeable to a specific percentage of the populace. They are guaranteed to the speaker, not to a specific audience.

Yet Arizona native, University of Arizona graduate and philanthropist Robert Sarver, the 18-year majority owner of the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury, previously uttered words currently deemed sexist and racist, initially resulting in a one year suspension by the NBA and a hefty $10 million dollar fine. Now he is being forced to sell the teams, though he has contritely stated, “As a man of faith, I believe in atonement and the path to forgiveness. I expected that the commissioner’s one-year suspension would provide the time for me to focus, make amends and remove my personal controversy from the teams that I, and so many fans, love.”

The speech police have ruled otherwise. Though Sarver is unique in owning major teams, we the hoi polloi, (Greek for “the masses“), have less to lose but can also suffer from not falling in line with the latest edicts of the authoritative language masters. Speaking to work associates about anything other than business is risky these days, giving enhanced meaning to the words, “Silence is golden.” The lesson is, saying nothing is preferable to speaking, which could cost you your job or more. There is no path of redemption.


AZ Republic’s new low: Slurs popular GOP SofS candidate Mark Finchem

September 17, 2022

The old adage, ‘Never argue with a man who buys ink by the barrel’ was once considered a truism. Today we know that print newspapers are a dying breed. The far-left Arizona Republic definitely exemplifies that fact.  Its antics are increasingly desperate as we near the November General Election.

Its latest effort to bring down a popular Republican candidate falls into the category of reprehensible. Mark Finchem, a former four-term state legislator with credentials galore is currently running for Secretary of State. This is an important post, since the Arizona Constitution does not does provide for a Lieutenant Governor and the line of succession passes through this office.  As these numbers attest, Finchem ran away with the Primary vote, trouncing all competitors by wide margins. This Meet the Candidate page is from the conservative Center for Arizona Policy Voter Guide.

Endorsed by former President Donald Trump, Finchem is regarded as worthy of degradation by the radically leftist newspaper, which took a leap into madness by describing Finchem as an “anti-Semite” after labeling him as an “election denier” didn’t work. It is a preposterous allegation based on Finchem calling out far-leftist, amoral George Soros. Soros has Jewish ancestry but isn’t aligned with the faith. He is an anti-religion Socialist who admitted (in this brief video) turning in his Jewish neighbors to the Nazis as a teenager, “with no sense of guilt.”

The newspaper, which once had a voice in elections, was forced to end its decades-long endorsement policy when subscriptions plummeted after it endorsed Hillary Clinton for U.S. President. It whiningly claimed it received “death threats,” following that absurd action. How a newspaper can be killed — other than by its own hand — is a preposterous assertion. It refuses to chastise democrat Fraidy Katie Hobbs, running for governor against Trump-endorsed Kari Lake. Hobbs is the only statewide democrat candidate who refused to debate their Republican opponent. With too many skeletons in her closet, including overt bigotry that resulted in massive fines, Hobbs even refused to debate her democrat primary election opponent.

The failing Arizona Republic’s last ditch effort at credibility is to denigrate conservatives such as Mark Finchem — a man of integrity — making him a target for defamation. Don’t be conned. His democrat challenger Adrian Fontes is a vile man lacking decency and manners as this 2017 news report shockingly reveals.

We did find a remedy to the local newspaper’s multi-pronged libelous deceit promulgated in lockstep by reporters and columnists. The Fort Bend Independent newspaper headlined this crucial report detailing a guilty verdict against the West Fort Bend Star and its reporter, “Star loses libel lawsuit, faces a million dollar penalty and damages.”


Frantic EJ hurls deceitful slurs, attempts to invalidate popular Republicans

September 1, 2022

Arizona’s failing newspaper employs a pitiful man who obediently carries its polluted water. It’s the ideal job for a wizened toady past retirement age who needs to feel relevant. And how does he accomplish this feat? EJ Montini focuses his bile on people who have had careers in public service; actually accomplishing all that eluded pathetic EJ who uses his keyboard to spew vile hatred.

What distresses this pitiful shell of a man is Republicans. Conservatives drive him to distraction. As General Election Day approaches he has lost all sense of restraint and engages in name-calling like the neighborhood bully who threw rocks and threats, but cowardly kept his distance, as we were walking to school. The difference is, Montini has no heft, either physically or mentally. His stock in trade is derision with contemptible abhorrence thrown into his unsavory brew.

It’s not enough that this characterless character is hate-filled and perpetually enraged at GOP politicians; his stock in trade is smearing them. His latest targets are Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake and Mark Finchem, the Republican candidate for Arizona secretary of state.

The thought of them ascending to Arizona’s top two offices is more than Montini can process. He actually calls them “Donald Trump cultists.”

Resorting to venomous tirades, he attempts to link both Republicans and state Senator Wendy Rogers to a state senate candidate in Oklahoma, who Montini has declared to be “homophobic and anti-Semitic,” vicious handles he hopes will somehow stick to the Arizona candidates. 

The only thing that will stick is the stench of Montini‘s boundless hatred of Republicans. He is drenched in the repulsive odor.


Maricopa County Recorder Richer seeks support after alleging threats

August 25, 2022

The headline, “Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer talks threats,” must have been so effective it was used in two consecutive, identical articles — both Tuesday and Wednesday — in the failing local leftwing newspaper whose readership has fallen to all-time lows and reports are often repeated.

Elected as a Republican, the former democrat was in his comfortable element when he appeared with CNN’s Erin Burnett, calling then-President Trump, “Unhinged.” The negative epithet proved so valuable, the newspaper used it in oversized type towering over a large photo of Richer and those who claimed they found no discrepancies in the 2000 election results that put Joe Biden over the top in Arizona, despite state, county and congressional Republicans reliably winning election or reelections.

The newspaper’s former sob-story columnist, now conscripted as a tedious political pot-stirrer, comes to Richer’s defense, something that would be anathema if he was an actual conservative rather than just playing one when convenient — an increasingly less frequent occurrence. She even devoted a column to Seeing Red AZ’s dissatisfaction with Richer, who we erroneously endorsed when we initially bought into his conservative contrivance. We will not link to her haughty attempt to marginalize us, or send our readers to the head-spinning environs of radicalism.

The hard truth is we made a colossal mistake. After years of Helen Purcell’s leadership as Maricopa County Recorder, we were not prepared for Richer’s duplicity.


Bidding a cheery farewell to lyin’ Liz

August 16, 2022

RINOcrat Liz Cheney faces Trump supporters at the Wyoming polls today as they turn out to vote for Trump-endorsed Attorney Harriet Hageman

When 41 percent of poll respondents indicate they are casting a vote against the incumbent, it demonstrates an astronomical level of grassroot voter dissatisfaction. Wyoming has a single seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, currently occupied by Liz Cheney. Her campaign website encourages democrats to reregister as Republicans to aid her failing primary campaign, providing an insight into her lack of commitment to conservative values and the desire of leftists to keep her in office to continue to do their bidding. Wyoming election laws also allow same-day changes at local polling places.

Although the deep-red state backed Donald Trump by 70 percent in 2020, Cheney notoriously joined with the united democrats and nine other GOP defectors as she voted to impeach the former president. Liz Cheney referred to him as “a threat to democracy.” 

Attorney Harriet Hageman, backed by President Trump and endorsed by numerous other GOP leaders, leads Cheney by double digits, 57% to 28%. Her values are solid, which will give a boost to the voters of Wyoming who voted overwhelmingly for Trump.

Of the other nine GOP representatives who joined Cheney voting for impeachment, four — seeing their dismal future — chose not to seek reelection, while three lost their primaries to Trump-backed challengers. Only two, Dan Newhouse (WA) and David Valadao (CA) will take their chances in the general election. Both states are blue and should regard these Republicrats as their own.

Cheney previously stated she would not launch a “Democrats for Cheney” group attempting to recruit supporters from across the political aisle. “That is not something that I have contemplated, that I have organized or that I will organize,” Cheney deceitfully said at the time.

Polls close at 7:00 PM.  The Secretary of State will post election results as they become available.


Leftist Reuters skews language in incendiary Trump report

August 14, 2022

45th U.S. President tried and convicted in the press without benefit of fair presentation of facts

Today Reuters headlines its anti-Trump news report, “Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort posed rare security challenges, experts say.” Obviously we are not including a link to this predisposed report. It rates mention to remind us all of the biased distortions that now pass as news.  We are including the first sentence to illustrate that fact:

The seizure of classified U.S. government documents from Donald Trump’s sprawling Mar-a-Lago retreat spotlights the ongoing national security concerns presented by the former president, and the home he dubbed the Winter White House, some security experts say.

“Seizure” is how the unprovoked raid by federal agents when the family was not in residence is described.  “Sprawling retreat” is how the Trump’s Florida family residence is described. “Spotlights the ongoing national security concerns presented by the former president,” are the bizarre words used to describe the Biden administration’s flagrant overreaches. “Some security experts say,” are loaded words that purposely omit what other security experts say.

Seeing Red AZ recently headlined, “AP report: Hard-copy newspapers dying at breakneck speed.” Fabricating news to fit an agenda is likely a major contributing factor.


Shocking raid on Pres. Trump’s home should disturb all Americans

August 12, 2022

This morning’s edition of the failing AZ newspaper required 6 reporters to massage the coverage

A reported 30 FBI agents — including safecrackers — at the direction of U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, broke into President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in the early morning Monday Aug. 8, 2022, when the Trumps were not in residence.

Joe Biden and his administration mouthpieces sidestep this major breach of protocol. Biden’s spokespeople continually say they have “no comment’ on this invasion of the private home of the former U.S. President.  With his back to the wall amid growing ire over this unprecedented action, radical leftist Merrick Garland has won the approval of Biden, who preposterously describes Garland as “embodying honor, decency, integrity, and fidelity to the rule of law and judicial independence.”

The FBI, headed by Director Christopher Wray, is under the umbrella of the Department of Justice, which is led by Merrick Garland, whose unwarranted, heavy-handed tactics have inflamed fair-minded Americans who value the Rule of Law. Wray was questioned extensively Thursday by Sen. Chuck Grassley, (R-IA), who expressed frustration, saying he did “not get much of an answer” on many lingering questions regarding the Biden endorsed forced entry at Mar-a-Lago.

Meanwhile, the Biden’s, accompanied by their crack addict son, Hunter, and his most recent wife — who he married ten days after they met —  head for a weeklong vacation on a private South Carolina island vacation onboard Air Force One. This affords the feeble Biden an opportunity to escape press inquires in the unlikely case any of his media toadies impertinently asks a question about the raid on President Trump‘s home.

Be sure to read “Merrick Garland: Petty, Vindictive Little Man,” in FrontPage magazine by Larry O’Connor.  You’ll be glad you did.


Revolting back story to judge authorizing raid on Trump’s home

August 11, 2022

Partisan Reinhart should have recused himself.

Bruce Reinhart, the U.S. Magistrate Judge who signed the warrant authorizing the reprehensible FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida home, is far from a neutral party in these contemptible proceedings. He was not, however, appointed to his post by President Trump, as is being reported.

Although Reinhart was sworn in as United States Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of Florida on March 14, 2018, while Trump was president, Trump had no oversight in his appointment. Unlike U.S. district judges, who are nominated by the president and confirmed by the United States Senate for lifetime tenure, magistrate judges are appointed by a majority vote of the federal district judges of a particular district and serve limited terms. Reinhart is tenth in the line of seniority and the only magistrate on this list lacking a link.

Hardly a disinterested citizen, political partisan Reinhart donated thousands of dollars to former President Barack Obama’s presidential campaign and his victory fund in 2008. He also donated to political opponents of Donald Trump during the 2016 election, including $500 to Jeb Bush.

In one of Reinhart’s online posts, he praised former congressman and civil rights activist John Lewis by quoting Robert Reich who said, “Donald Trump doesn’t have the moral stature to kiss John Lewis’s feet.”

Reinhart also betrayed his disdain for Trump by revealing that he tried to ‘ignore’ the then president elect’s tweets.

President Trump’s statement can be read here.

Bruce Reinhart defended Lois Lerner who deleted two years of emails during the IRS scandal that resulted in her resignation. Lerner, an IRS honcho, purposely targeted conservative groups challenging their applications for tax exempt status.


Pres. Trump: Mar-a-Lago home raided by FBI & UPDATE

August 8, 2022

 Big victories for Trump endorsed Primary Election candidates set stage for obscene Biden authorized FBI raid

This afternoon, we take our readers directly to The Post Millennial which appeared to be the initial news source covering what the 45th president, Donald Trump, has described as, “These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.” He added, “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”

Trump also compared the FBI search to “an assault that could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries” and also “to the Watergate scandal.”

This is a must-read article, horrific in the selective unannounced, politically motivated raid of the private home of the former president viewed by democrat operatives within the current administration as having too much influence with primary voters across the USA.

To no one’s surprise, Justice Department spokesperson Dena Iverson declined to comment on the search, including about whether U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland had personally authorized the outrageous raid.

When the odor is pungent, Garland never passes the smell test.

UPDATE:

On cue, in Tuesday’s edition the biased, Trump-despising, Hillary-endorsing, radically left-wing, local newspaper headlines, “Trump: FBI searched estate,” as if the extraordinary incursion into his home was a figment of President Trump’s imagination.  Included in the banner headlined article were these gems: “The search, which the FBI and Justice Department did not immediately confirm, marks a dramatic escalation in law enforcement scrutiny of Trump and comes amid a separate but intensifying probe into efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Trump and his allies immediately sought to cast the search as part of a Democratic effort to keep him from winning another term in 2024, even though the Biden White House said it had no prior knowledge of it.”

Believe this preposterous claim and we’ve got a cut-rate bridge in the Sonoran desert to sell you.


Far leftist “Meathead” Stivic was not acting, he was portraying himself

August 1, 2022

There was a time before the advent of political correctness, when the immensely popular Archie Bunker Show was considered side-splittingly funny. It was irreverent, opinionated and we all laughed at the truisms that were integral to the family that consisted of Archie and Edith Bunker, their daughter Gloria and her husband Michael “Meathead” Stivic, played by Rob Reiner. It was the 1970’s and “All in the Family” was the show to watch.

In the intervening years, humor was replaced by jockeying for the highest level of victimhood and angst. Comedians, once an entertainment staple, are a now rarity.

Reiner was not simply playing an irritating, young ne’er-do-well, left-winger who continually riled conservative Archie, while living rent-free in his in-law‘s home. He was playing himself, a radical propagandist. Now 73, he has taken on the biggest comedic role of his life. He is a fervent Joe Biden supporter, a role enhanced by his visceral hatred of conservatives and Donald Trump, verified by his chronic case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Despite the worst economy in decades — previously thriving under President Trump — Reiner does not veer from his virulent leftwingism, proving Archie bestowed the perfect nickname on this less than reputable, sponging son-in-law. In this tweet, Reiner described President Trump and the 63 million Americans who voted for him for president as “racists and white nationalists.”

And all along we thought we were patriotic Americans.
