Susan Rice: Dealing in deception — again

April 5, 2017

Sen. James Lankford, (R-OK) and U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-NY) each members of their respective intelligence committees have expressed concerns about revelations regarding pre-election surveillance by the Obama administration of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.  The spying, which has received scant coverage in the mainstream media, was initially disclosed by President Trump and mocked by Obama operatives and their colluders in the press.

Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, is at the heart of the scrutiny.

Sen. Langford takes the allegations seriously, saying, “The accusation is that people in the Obama administration were using their offices to get access to political information. They may have been using classified documents to release names and target individuals. That is not legal and these are serious accusations. We hope Susan Rice will meet with us.”

Congressman King agreed, stating that a thorough investigation is needed. “If these accusations are true, it rises to a level of a very high scandal because it is such an abuse of privacy. It violates the law and it undermines the presidency,“ King said.

Delusional Susan Rice, Obama’s  national security adviser must think she’s still on his payroll. Few will forget her deceptive talking points (video) as she made the rounds of Sunday morning network news shows following the 2012 attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya.. Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed — not by supposed protesters upset over a video depicting Mohammad, as she claimed — but by terrorists.

Circa News exposes the facts regarding the computer logs that former President Obama’s team left behind in the White House indicating Susan Rice accessed numerous intelligence reports during Obama’s last seven months in office that contained National Security Agency intercepts involving Donald Trump and his associates.

Intelligence sources said the logs discovered by National Security Council staff suggested Rice’s interest in the NSA materials, some of which included unmasked Americans’ identities, appeared to begin last July around the time Trump secured the GOP nomination and accelerated after Trump’s election in November and launched a transition that continued through January.

Andrew McCarthy, writing for National Review points out, “Her interest was not in national security but to advance the political interests of the Democratic party,” calling Susan Rice’s White House unmasking “an abuse of power” and “Watergate-style scandal.” McCarthy, a former chief federal prosecutor, reminds his readers “the thing to bear in mind is that the White House does not do investigations — not criminal investigations, not intelligence investigations.”

Obama’s White House honed its skills in cover-ups.


We read the AZ Republic so you don’t have to

April 2, 2017

Hammering Republican state legislators is latest gig

The Arizona Republic made much ado of the fact that its endorsement of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race was an aberration.  After all, it claims to be a conservative newspaper. Still it said “Hillary Clinton was the only choice to move America ahead” despite her “flaws.”

“Flaws?” The newspaper has obviously mastered the art of understatement.

Arizonans, too smart to believe such absurdities, voted for Donald Trump — who won the state by 91,234 votes, carrying 11 of the 15 counties. Trump took all 11 electoral votes.

On his powerful coattails, Republicans increased their force in state legislatures across the country, controlling both chambers in 32 states,  leaving Democrats at their lowest level since the Civil War. The GOP increased its majority of governorships. The U.S. House and Senate are both majority Republican.

Yet read the daily newspaper and you’d think Democrats were the people’s choice. A case in point is columnist Laurie Roberts, who veered away from her tales-of-woe specialty to hammer state legislators. This was not a wholesale bashing, as a former columnist routinely engaged in, calling the entire assemblage by the politically incorrect term, “dwarves.”

No. Roberts selected her targets very carefully, never referring to their stature. It was her perception of their lack of gray matter she focused on — naming seven whom she promised “will make your jaw drop.”

What a surprise to find that each of the “standouts in the theater of the absurd” are Republicans. 

The newspaper is a contemptible farce, mercifully fading fast. It has shrunken in size and uses oversized — oftentimes, half page photos or illustrations — to take up space. Content consists in large part of pre-written pap that bears no resemblance to news. Entertainment and dining are given prominence. More than occasionally the same article will appear a day apart, or even in the same issue, with a few pages separating them, earning it our nickname of The Daily Regurgitation. We also refer to it as The Periódico de la República de Arizona for its unswerving  open borders stance.

The editorial cartoonist is unable to depict anything other than gross mischaracterizations of the President of the United States. With nothing else to draw but wild orange hair, his cartoonist wife has filled in for him.

Newspaper ads are overwhelmingly for retirement homes and hearing aids, which indicates the demographic who still subscribe. The newspaper’s front page often runs a box urging readers to “Go Deeper With Digital,” since the costs of printing and distributing a daily dings the already savaged bottom line. After layoffs and buyouts of longtime employees, ASU Cronkite journalism students have become the unseasoned glue that holds the disheveled mess together. Their commitment to the First Amendment is questionable.  In 2009, after inviting Sheriff Joe Arpaio to participate in a forum, the students in the audience began loudly chanting Bohemian Rhapsody, drowning him out as he attempted to respond.

Do those in charge at the Republic actually expect anyone to take seriously the views of the skewed editorial board, the toady columnists and rude student reporters who disrespect the First Amendment?


A glaring example of fake news

March 20, 2017

No cream in your coffee?  No milk on your Wheaties? According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, you can lay the blame for such inconveniences directly at the feet of President Donald Trump.

Who knew?

Trump’s campaign promise to deport illegal aliens doesn’t play well with a dairy farmer interviewed for the newspaper’s report.  He depends on “foreign workers” to do the dairy work, saying Americans won’t work for $13 an hour — the identical salary bank tellers in Wisconsin earn. Farming today, including dairies, is overwhelmingly mechanized  Stoop labor in the fields is mostly a thing of the past. Dairies have long had automated milking machines.

This Center for Immigration Studies report titled, “Alternatives to Immigrant Labor” was published in 2000 — seventeen years ago!  Even then the conclusion was hand harvesting of fruit and vegetable crops in the United States is a labor-intensive operation that accounts for about 50 percent of total production costs.

In other words, even paying substandard wages to illegal harvesters increased the prices to American consumers. Mechanization, including computer and vision equipped robotic systems for crop detection and robotic arms with special grippers for crop detachment, collection, and transport are described in the CIS report, which concluded, “Great progress has been made as computers, vision systems, and motion/manipulation control technologies have been enhanced.”

Those words were written nearly two decades ago. It’s not difficult to imagine rapid advances have since been made in our ever increasing technological world.

The entire premise of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report, “Immigration Policy Could Put Dairy Farmers Out of Business, is fallacious. The newspaper editorially endorsed Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Although no fan of Hillary’s it used inflammatory hyperbole to describe Trump, calling him a “liar, a bigot, a gleeful peddler of hate, egotistical and emotionally unsteady” — among other insults.

The editorial board concluded with this display of foolishness:  “For those who can’t support Clinton’s policies, we recommend they follow the lead of Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who wrote in the name of a mature, conservative leader at the top of his ticket — in his case, Arizona Sen. John McCain.”

That selection of a “conservative leader” could explain why John Kasich is a man destined to be relegated to political obscurity when his term expires. He lost the Republican nomination for president in 2000 and 2016. 

This newspaper shames itself with its obnoxious, leftist spew.


McCain’s latest “bipartisan” effort to hamstring Pres. Trump

February 11, 2017

Still hallucinating that he’s president, John McCain is working feverishly –with a contingent of Democrats and a couple of Republicrats — in an effort to pull the rug out from the man who actually was elected….President Donald Trump

Since hypocritically withdrawing his brief primary endorsement and declaring he would not vote for Trump, the petulant McCain has tried to undermine the president at every turn.

His latest gambit is a bill that would require any decision by the Trump administration to ease sanctions against Russia to be subject to congressional oversight — which amounts to McCain giving McCain the authority that has eluded him.  Where was McCain’s voice when Barack Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry oversaw the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran, sweetening the transaction with an unthinkable $400 million ransom for hostages, and what National Review characterizes asa carefully structured $1.7 billion side payment.”

McCain’s Gang of Eight amnesty efforts fell flat, as did those preceding it. Now he’s trying for a less cumbersome Gang of Six to rein in Pres. Trump. His co-conspirators are Democrat Sens. Claire Catskill (MO), Ben Cardin, (MD), Sherrod Brown (OH) and his reliable RINO kin Sens. Marco Rubio (FL) and Lindsey Graham (SC). Missing from the mix this time is McCain’s doppelganger, Jeff Flake.  He can’t afford the exposure since he’s up for reelection this year and Arizona conservatives are more than disgusted with his self-serving antics.

The Hill reports that Ben Cardin, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee said, “It’s not an attack against President Trump. This is basically to reestablish our role.”

Believe that and we’ve got a bridge to sell you.

At a health care summit in 2010, a showboating McCain lobbed challenges at then-President Obama — who began his response by reminding McCain of the passage of time.Let me just make this point, John, because we’re not campaigning anymore, the election’s over.” (4:27)

Obviously,  we’re anything but Obama fans. Still,  this would be good advice for McCain to follow. Donald Trump is the President of the United States. Even Hillary Clinton accepts that fact. It’s time for John McCain to join her.


Soros funded losing candidates to defeat Trump and failed

February 7, 2017

Soros fund execs gifted donations to failed presidential candidates John McCain, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Lindsey Graham along with Mitt Romney’s VP candidate and now Speaker of the House Paul Ryan,  hoping to trounce Trump in 2016

Seeing Red AZ has been sounding the alarm about the John McCain / George Soros connection for years.  In Jan. 2014, we posted John McCain cavorts with pal George $oros, exposing the deep ties McCain has cultivated with the extremist, America-hating, open-borders globalist. Soros, a multi-billionaire has bankrolled the duplicitous Arizona senator since 2001.

Nov. 2015 we posted McCain joins Soros pushing “refugee” invasion, filled with excellent outside links that further expose the man who at that time was seeking a sixth, six-year senate term at age 80. We wrote, “the depth of McCain’s deception is mind-boggling.”

When we posted By George! McCain & Hillary have a lot in common, Feb. 1, 2016, in the fourth paragraph we included a link to Richard Poe, a New York Times-best selling author and award-winning journalist, who presented the definitive statement and follow-up question: “John McCain Gets Soros Cash. Why would McCain be the willing recipient of money from Soros — who funded Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns?”

Interestingly, the link is kaput and a message says, “The page you are looking for no longer exists.” The site links to Poe’s books, one of which, The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party, he co-authored in 2007 with conservative David Horowitz.

Today we direct our readers to Matthew Boyle’s first-rate investigative report “George Soros the Godfather of the Left,” posted on Breitbart, further exposing the collusion. Boyle writes:

In total, executives with the Soros-founded company pushed $36,800 into the coffers of these GOP candidates just this past cycle. That does not include Super PACs or campaign committees, which saw tens of thousands of dollars more. While these numbers for Republicans pale in comparison to the millions upon millions poured into Democratic groups, causes, and candidates, it is significant that Soros executives are making a play inside the GOP. Perhaps even more significant is the type of Republican they aim to prop up: pro-amnesty, pro-open borders on trade, and generally speaking anti-Trump. A pattern emerges when looking at the policies of the Republicans that these Soros Fund Management executives support financially.

The biggest recipient of Soros-connected cash in the GOP was none other than House Speaker Paul Ryan, who repeatedly attempted to undermine Trump over the course of the election. According to the records available online, the Soros firm’s workers gave $10,800 to Ryan.

POLITICO reported Soros has worked under cover to remake the U.S. Justice system in his liberal image, funding left-wing prosecutor and law enforcement candidates. Here in Maricopa County he spent $2 million to topple Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Commit these traitorous names to memory: John McCain, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Lindsey Graham. They are all anti-Trump Republicrats willing to turn on Donald Trump, the Republican party’s presidential nominee and now our 45th president for the proverbial thirty pieces of silver.

McCain’s spokeswoman, Julie Tarallo, along with those representing the other politicos contacted, has not responded to multiple requests for comment from Breitbart News. What a surprise.

Why does military repeatedly receive the back of McCain’s hand?

Did we need the AZ Republic to tell us that “John McCain has come out swinging against the Trump administration“?

The article begins with the mystifying words, “John McCain is making it very clear that he isn’t just going to go along with everything President Donald Trump proposes, despite the fact they are both Republicans.”

Let’s be clear. John McCain only hauls out that cumbersome “R” to place next to his name when ballots are printed.  He prefers themaverick” designation (video), meaning he’s pushing back against Republican principles at every opportunity.

McCain is still smarting from the beating he took at the hands of Barack Hussein Obama, whose middle name he banished from American lips as unfitting, although Obama proudly used it in both of his inauguration ceremonies.

After President Donald Trump announced he would be launching a major investigation into voter fraud, megalomaniac octogenarian McCain boasted about his own vicious 2016 Senate reelection campaign saying, “Listen, I won by 14 points. I’m absolutely sure that there was not a single illegal vote in that election in Arizona.”  McCain must have missed this video, showing irrefutable proof of ballot box stuffing in Phoenix, which was the impetus for a law halting what became known as ballot harvesting.

Rasmussen Reports’ Daily Presidential Tracking Poll shows that less than a week into his presidency, Donald Trump is scoring points with Americans — with a 57% approval rating on Wednesday. On Monday, the question revolved around Pres. Trump’s use of the phrase “America First” to describe his trade and foreign policy agenda. 52% agreed with the statement.

The stock market has responded favorably to Trump, with the Dow breaking above 20,000 for the first time ever. Americans are heartened, seeing many of Donald Trump’s campaign promises being carried out within days of assuming office. McCain withdrew his momentary support from Trump after he was the GOP nominee and had previously called Hillary a “rock star” he could support.

No wonder John McCain is posturing. He’s got little to show for his decades in Washington other than colluding with Democrats on amnesty for illegals and mistreating family members of Vietnam POW/MIAs who merely want him to unseal the documents regarding their loved ones. Watch his Feb. 2, 2008 despicable performance, as he disgracefully insults and shuts down Delores Alfond, Chair of the National Alliance of Families, seeking information about American POW/MIAs unaccounted for since their service in Vietnam. Ms. Alfond’s pilot brother Capt. Victor J. Apodaca was last heard from as he was flying over North Vietnam. She passed away in Dec. 2010.

McCain was also onboard with Obama’s plan to cut benefits to our military personnel, as reported in Military Advantage. And although the worse scandal involving VA hospitals, resulting in dozens of needless deaths of veterans, occurred in Phoenix, John McCain didn’t venture into the facility seeking answers.


Ann Coulter: “Big sell-out is coming”

December 4, 2016

Doubts Trump’s pledge to build wall

Author, lawyer, and conservative political pundit Ann Coulter was on-board early as a committed Donald Trump supporter. As with many of us, illegal immigration rose to the top of her list. Coulter even wrote a book, “In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!” — one of 11 that have made the New York Times best sellers list.

In her recent column, “How Trump could ruin his presidency,” Coulter quotes from Trump’s Phoenix immigration speech where he laid out his 10-Point Immigration Plan:

“To all the politicians, donors and special interests, hear these words from me and all of you today. There is only one core issue in the immigration debate, and that issue is the well-being of the American people.” 

Many of us were among the thousands who stood in line for hours that Sept. 2016 day. We heard those words and cheered.

This is Ann Coulter’s recent tweet as it relates to Trump’s stance on the wall, and her lack of faith that he will follow through on his promise to build it and finally secure our border. There is no comfort in the fact that Vice President-elect Mike Pence said he and House Speaker Paul Ryan would be the ones spearheading the “illegal immigration” fix. Ryan is among the least trustworthy on the issue.

For an excellent exposé of Paul Ryan’s leftward lurch on the topic of criminal illegal aliens, American Thinker has a must read post, “When it comes to illegal immigrants, Paul Ryan sides with Democrats,” Author Catharine Evans calls Ryan’s disconnect from reality when it comes to illegals crossing our border and killing innocent Americans “staggering.” If you read nothing else today, this is post is deserving of your attention.

The equivalent would be reprising the disastrous “Gang of Eight” scheme with amnesty pimps, John McCain, Jeff Flake, Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Marco Rubio & Co. We’ve been down this road before with numerous attempts going back to McCain, Jon Kyl and Ted Kennedy to saddle Americans with the device they called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.”

It’s time to hold Donald Trump’s feet to the fire.  In allowing Paul Ryan anywhere near this issue the honeymoon is doomed before the marriage begins on January 20, 2017.
