Dignity, collegiality and propriety? We need a fighter

July 20, 2017

Author Evan Sayet provides a rational look at the political world as it is. Take a couple of minutes to read, “He fights.”  

The title comes from a wartime statement made by President Lincoln describing General Ulysses Grant. Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War. The analogy is unmistakable.


AZ GOP engages in suspicious info harvesting 

July 14, 2017

An urgent email has been sent out by the state Republican Party. It says, “In reviewing our records, we were made aware your voter profile status has been marked — incomplete.”

If those bold red letters don’t speak of urgency, nothing does. But what’s the emergency?  Since the recipients received the email, the party obviously has the necessary information to make contact — or “reach out” as trendy talking, touchy feely Chairman Jonathan Lines likes to say. They also have access to the voter files that list all of the data they say they need.

Then comes the kicker:

—Complete your voter profile now—

Make sure to fill out this short survey in the next 24 hours to remain active in our system.

That 24-hour deadline is an eyebrow raiser. Being suspicious types, we smell a rat. It has bleach streaked hair, sports an often inappropriate grin, has a propensity for joining up with an octogenarian rodent and a gaggle of RINOs and liberals on amnesty for illegals, besides being a shirtless show boater extraordinaire. Though making news for loudly refusing to vote for Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, it is also running for reelection in 2018.

Yep. The party is readying itself for a Flake blowout and is harvesting for Jeff Flake — who won his first 6-year senate term by a slim 3-points. Flake should be remembered for promoting Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s lame duck nominee for U.S. Supreme Court, saying, “It was time.”  Fortunately, Trump was elected president without Jeff Flake’s vote and appointed conservative Judge Neil Gorsuch to the high court. 

The information gathering goes further with a drop down box asking “What Issue Is Most Important To You?” Recipients are given the option of a single choice. They can chose from  Economic Growth,  Job Creation, Federal Overreach, Gun Rights, Taxes, Government Spending, National Security, Foreign Policy, Social Issues and Pro-Life.  Oddly missing is the issue that was central to the election of President Trump  — illegal immigration.

If you choose to fork over your personal information, there’s a box to check asking the powerful AZ/OZ  behind the curtain to “Subscribe me to the Arizona Republican Party Chairman’s Daily Update.” It’s doubtful they’ll get many takers for the daily dose of self congratulatory bravado, when the widely read MCRC Briefs is actually filled with insider party news and key information for conservative activists.


Vengeful McCain headlined as key player in phony Russian dossier

July 13, 2017

Arizonans who pay attention have long known of the underhanded tactics and uncontrolled temper of  John McCain. To call them legendary would make him appear to be laudable rather than the unsavory character he actually is. The UK’s Daily Mail and the Guardian reveal John McCain as the devious schemer behind the effort to take down President Donald Trump, who McCain and his senate seat mate Jeff Flake each said they would not vote for.  McClatchy News fired the opening volley in outing McCain in the Russian dossier scandal. The Daily Caller has revealed that McCain will face questions in a defamation lawsuit.

Possessing an insatiable ego and access to lobbyist money and Socialist billionaire George Soro’s generous funding, McCain has vastly outspent more worthy opponents and was reelected in 2016 to another six-year term at age 80. Never letting the truth get in the way of his mission, he and his operatives have even engaged in intra-party measures to oust conservative elected precinct committeemen within the Arizona Republican Party — using out-of-state Obama donors to accomplish his ends.

It appears McCain’s role in this  latest outrageous action against the President of the United States, might finally be the straw that breaks the proverbial camel’s back and results in unceremoniously removing him from the U.S. Senate in disgrace.

Longtime readers of Seeing Red AZ are aware that we use substantiating links in our posts.  Today we veer from that policy, since our well known “blue links” would take over this crucial information contained in the news reports.

We urge you to read the reports. Knowledge is power.


La Raza by any other name smells just as foul

July 12, 2017

The National Council of La Raza, the far left Hispanic organization whose name translates to “The Race” and whose motto is “Por la raza todo, fuera de la raza nada” — “For the race, everything, outside the race, nothing,” — met in Phoenix this week for its 2017 national conference

On the agenda was a name change for the clearly racist group, which will now call itself “Unidos U.S.,” or “United U.S.”  according to Janet Murguia, President and CEO,

In 2008, Murguia acknowledged the difficulty the name posed to reporter Ruben Navarrette, Jr., who criticized the name as “a musty throwback to the 1960s.””We take a lot of heat for our name,” Murguia said at the time. She acknowledged that there had been discussions about changing it. “But historically I think it’s something that our community feels wedded to.” Murguia prefers to use its initials, calling it simply, “NCLR.” Yet there’s no escaping the fact that militant Latinos express their advocacy for illegal immigration by shouting, “Viva la Raza!”

Now she admits that though the name change was being considered before Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, the new name “fits the strategy of collective resistance.”

Conference attendees had sharply differing views on the name change, some saying it was “selling out” and expressing pride in the unquestionably racist name.

Randy Parraz, a local open-borders extremist, described benignly as a “community organizer” by the daily newspaper, opposed the name change as giving in to pressure. “We have to own our identity because it makes us powerful,” he said.

Janet Murguia, deeply rooted in liberalism, is not one who speaks impetuously. Her twin sister Mary, is a judge on the left-leaning Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals — nominated by Barack Obama.  AZ  Sens. McCain and Kyl voted for her confirmation. Her brother Carlos is a federal judge for the U.S. District Court in Kansas. Prior to being nominated to the federal bench by Bill Clinton, he was the Coordinator for the Immigration Amnesty Program of El Centro, Inc.

Nine years ago this week, Michelle Malkin, nationally syndicated columnist, author and senior editor at Conservative Review, wrote15 things you should know about “The Race.” It remains relevant. At the time the column was written, presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama were each featured speakers at the annual La Raza conference in San Diego. Malkin is a proud American of Philippine heritage.

The late Congressman Dr. Charlie Norwood (R-GA.) warned about La Raza.

*William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, she says, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Juliet makes the case that it doesn’t matter to her that Romeo is from her family’s longstanding foe, the house of Montague. The reference is often used to imply that the names of things have no affect on what they actually are — as in the case of La Raza.


AZ GOP chair Lines omits facts, engages in braggadocio

July 11, 2017

If you’re up to the task, there are occasional chuckles brought on by hefty dosages of irony in the Daily Updates emailed by AZ GOP chairman Jonathan Lines. The first harrumph inducer is the banner that blasts it’s “The Only Official Newsletter of the Arizona Republican Party!”— an obvious attempt to disparage the fact-filled and widely read “MCRC Briefs.”

Monday’s message, “Empowering Republicans” could make even the most seasoned political observer scratch his head in bewilderment, given the shenanigans currently taking place within the AZ GOP.

Lines begins his missive by saying he’s midair “on his way to Washington DC, having accepted an invitation from the White House to continue our planning for 2018. I was honored to be invited by the President and his team to talk about how we can continue to work together to strengthen our party and win elections.”

Working together would be quite an accomplishment, given the despicable defections (video) of Jeff Flake and a host of other Republicrats, including Mitt Romney, the uncle of the RNC Chair.

Lines talks about his “great relationship” with RNC Chairman Ronna Romney McDaniel and how “the White House, the RNC and the AZ GOP are working seamlessly to empower Republicans, strengthen our party, and win elections, and how PCs are being empowered like never before.”

With Lines hectic schedule he night have forgotten that McCain operatives worked diligently to purge dedicated, conservative elected precinct committeemen (PCs). Former Sen. Kyl also engaged in the same trickery.

Aha!  Finally Lines is going to name names and maybe kick ass of defectors: “As always,’ Lines says, “There are those, even some within our Republican ranks, who wish to tear down our President and to demonize some in our party. As I’ve done throughout my chairmanship, I will urge everyone to maintain a civil and respectful discourse, and focus our efforts on defeating Democrats and furthering our President’s agenda…we owe it to the President, to our elected officials, to our fellow PCs, and to our country,” he says. Lines has been chairman since January 28, 2017.

If Lines is referring to Arizona’s two pathetic US Senators McCain and Flake, it would be the first time. His comment is encased in double-speak, so who knows? McCain withdrew his momentary endorsement of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Flake did him one better by making the rounds of liberal television networks publicly stating he would not vote for Trump. Flake even promoted Obama’s lame duck nominee, Democrat Merrick Garland for the US Supreme Court. Fortunately, Donald Trump was elected without these traitors and appointed conservative Judge Neil Gorsuch to the high court.

In a irresistible display of pomposity, Lines concludes, “We are a party on the rise. In fact, earlier his year at the RNC Spring Meeting, Chairman McDaniel specifically asked me to stand up and be recognized, as a tribute to the leadership that the party is providing to win elections and #TurnAll15Red!”

“Chairman McDaniel’s support means so much to me; and needless to say, the confidence that President Trump and the White House have shown us is truly humbling. And none of it happens without my fellow PCs.”

Which PCs? Those who were systematically purged by the party elites or the new recruits who have no historic memory?


Pope Francis hurls more insults at U.S. and Pres. Trump

July 9, 2017

Seeks to marginalize President Trump over “immigration” at meeting with G20 world leaders

 The relationship between Pope Francis and the United States has often been a rocky one. This pope is clearly a Marxist, while the roots of the U.S. are grounded in liberty, respect for the rule of law and a sense of personal responsibility. Though Americans are the world’s most charitable, the pope adheres to Karl Marx’ redistributionist philosophy of “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs, “  — not advocating charity but confiscation and redistribution from earners to takers.

He also places illegal invaders above lawful immigrants — though not at the Vatican.

Pope Francis and his minions have made clear their abhorrence of Donald Trump from his days as a candidate. The animus has only worsened since President Trump’s inauguration.

During the 2016 campaign, the pope displaying his magical powers of ESP, actually claimed the Republican front-runner, “Was not a Christian,” declaring, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”

Exhibiting a grand dose of hypocrisy, he even tried to bully Trump into submission on his campaign pledge to build a wall to secure our sovereign border. The globalist  pope claims to abhor such barriers, 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.

Viewing himself as omnipotent Francis claimed Trump’s withdrawal from the Climate Change accords was a personalslap in the face.”

When Francis was scheduled to address the U.S. Congress, he first made a beeline to the repressed island of Cuba to visit Communist dictator .Raul Castro, clearly showing his preferred alliance.  Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar, a devout Catholic, opted not to attend the papal address. Read Gosar’s cogent explanation for his boycott.

Now while President Trump is interacting with world leaders at the G20 summit — even meeting with Russia’s Putin for the first time and addressing the issue of intrusion into our elections — the America abhorring pope claims,America has a distorted vision of the world.” This linked CNS news report is definitely worth your time.

Francis needs to decide if he is the spiritual leader of the Catholic Church’s estimated 1.2 billion adherents, or a radical political aspirant espousing Communism and cheering lawlessness on the world stage. With a gay and drug fueled sex scandal recently erupting within the Vatican, he should have his hands full.

He can’t have it both ways.


SCOTUS vacancies loom: Dems question Trump’s ability to serve

July 6, 2017

Today we pass along another reason to delight in having President Trump making executive decisions. As you readPower Move: Gorsuch Opts Out Of High Court Labor Pool.” by Kevin Daley, Legal Affairs Reporter for the Daily Caller you’ll be provided insight into the independence and work ethic of Trump’s newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. He has decided to reject the practice of granting overreaching authority to the justice’s shared law clerks in what is referred to as a “labor pool,” to analyze and make recommendations regarding which cases the justices will hear. With this move, Gorsuch joins Justice Samuel Alito, who opted out of the system in 2008.

The U.S. Supreme Court is the primary reason the still shell-shocked Democrats remain unable to accept the fact that their scandal plagued candidate, Hillary Clinton, lost the presidential election. Barack Obama provided her with assistance as did Socialist billionaire George Soros and the far left celebrity crowd. She was poised to be Obama’s third term. It was a certainty she would follow his leftward court lurches. Her husband Bill was so moved when he announced his nomination of ACLU lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg, he had to wipe away tears.

Then on election night Americans spoke as stunning vote totals came in from unlikely blue states. Liberals cried and conservatives cheered. The Hillary supporting Washington Post had to admit “we were wrong,“ when it became clear their assessment of Donald Trump was far from accurate. Their mea culpa wasDonald Trump just blew up the electoral map.

 The angst was far greater than Hillary’s defeat. There were the now crucial repercussions of Donald Trump’s massive victory.  First and foremost is the Supreme Court and Trump’s ability to reconfigure the court for the next thirty years.

Justice Anthony Kennedy, a Reagan appointee who has delighted in being the unreliable “swing vote” reportedly is considering retirement. He turns 81 later this month. Stephen Breyer, a Bill Clinton appointee celebrates his 79th birthday in August. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 84, has been in ill health for years.

The prospect of President Trump filling those vacancies has sent shock waves through Congressional Democrats. Their latest scheme is to question the president’s mental fitness to serve out his term.

Though the president has served less than 6 full months in office, over two dozen Democrat lawmakers have signed on to a bill that would create an Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity. Their goal is to declare the President of the United States mentally incompetent under Section IV of the 25th Amendment and remove him from office. Never forget, it’s all about the Supreme Court.

Another item to add to your ‘never forget list’ is just prior to the end of Obama’s term, AZ Sen. Jeff Flake, saying, “It’s time,” urged his fellow senators to confirm Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s lame duck Supreme Court nominee. RINO Flake, who repeatedly announced his refusal to vote for Donald Trump was featured in Hillary Clinton’s campaign ad.

Actual Republicans are grateful Donald Trump was elected President of the United States and cheer his appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the high court. We should all remember the words and actions of Republican pretender Jeff Flake on Election Day.
