Catholic Bishops vote to rebuke pro-abortion Biden

June 20, 2021

Although abortion is in direct contradiction with the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church, Pres. Joe Biden attempts to straddle the issue by asserting himself as a “pro-choice” Catholic.

The “choice,” is, of course, the taking of an innocent, pre-born human life.

Biden is so committed to abortion, he even selected Ron Klain, an outspoken pro-abortion activist to serve as his White House chief of staff.

The Christian Post reported in June 2018, shortly after Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, Klain took to Twitter to ask people to follow “our great leaders.” One of the “great leaders” cited by Klain is Ilyse Hogue, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, a prominent pro-abortion advocacy organization. NARAL prefers the sanitized abbreviated version of its name, which is actually National Abortion Rights Action League. The group would oppose any pro-life Supreme Court replacement

There’s no mystery surrounding Biden’s selection of Klain as chief of staff. Asserting the right to slaughter pre-born babies is a unifying issue for leftists.

The Catholic Church, however, views life as sacred, which presents a conundrum for far-left Biden, while the church remains consistent in its teachings.  In a critical rebuke, the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights lists 32 distinct departures from Catholic teachings by the policies of President Biden.  It’s worth your time to review them.

The faithfully pro-life U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) voted overwhelmingly to draft a formal document on the meaning of the Eucharist after a serious debate on whether President Biden and other Catholic politicians who support abortion policies are worthy of receiving Communion at Mass.

More than 73% of the U.S. Bishops casting ballots at the recent virtual conference supported tasking the USCCB’s doctrine committee to draft language on maintaining consistency with the Eucharist. A section of the document is expected to include a specific admonition to Catholic politicians and other public figures who defy church teaching on abortion and other core doctrinal issues.

The vote tally announced Friday was 168 bishops in favor, 55 opposed and six bishops abstaining.

This Catholic Vote survey conducted June 1 – 8, 2021, shows that Catholic respondents expect more from Catholic elected officials than they’re getting.


Dem doctors’ odd obsession with death and sex

February 24, 2021

State sanctioned death in Virginia reveals a bizarrely ironic twist. Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam, M.D., a onetime pediatric neurologist, disdains the death penalty for even the most violent criminals, but thinks infanticide up to and including live births, should be the mother’s prerogative. He publicly advocated for the late-term and post delivery killings. There are no risks involved in this abhorrent stance since it passes muster in the far-left state.

Northham is expected to sign the bill abolishing capitol punishment in the state. There is no crime too vile to meet the standard to receive the ultimate penalty.

We’ve also been following the career path of Rachel Levine, M.D., a pediatrician, who could easily be defined as a resembling an unattractive man with long bleached blonde hair. The description is apt, since that is exactly what Rachel, born Richard, is. Levine, who does not want to be misgendered,” (photo) has been appointed to the Department of Health and Human Services.

Worse yet, Levine has been nominated by Biden as assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, a particularly concerning post, since one of the foremost agenda items is advocating for puberty blocking hormones for children who claim to be transgender.

Biden, who has announced the introduction Congressional H.R. 5, known as the Equality Act, has never seen aberration he doesn’t embrace. Its title is: “To prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and for other purposes.”

In announcing his nominees, Biden’s media releases has used these words: “As tested and experienced leaders, these nominees will help advance President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda and build a stronger, more resilient, and more inclusive nation that delivers every American a fair opportunity and an equal chance to get ahead.”

When he could choose the best, Joe Biden veers into playing into a “more inclusive nation.” This letter to Biden protesting the nomination of former California Congressman Xavier Bererra to head the Department of Health and Human Services is signed by his former colleagues including Republicans in the Arizona delegation. Bererra has been endorsed by pro-abortion groups NARAL and Planned Parenthood. To no one’s surprise, even Dr. Anthony Fauci got in on the act.  Fauci is seen here pictured with his longtime radical cohorts, including Socialist George Soros and Bill Gates father.


Radical Virginia Gov., AG cancel gun shows

November 20, 2020

Virginia dems bow to anti-Second Amendment gun restrictions that were fundamental to the Harris/Biden campaign

The state of Virginia stands as a testament to decay. The Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson, a brilliant Virginian who served as third President of the United States from 1801 to 1809. He was responsible for doubling the size of the United States by successfully brokering the Louisiana Purchase, land previously owned by France. He also founded the University of Virginia.

Virginia patriots served in the Continental Army and fought against Great Britain, eventually leading to the British surrender at Yorktown, Virginia.

The Second Amendment, ensuring the right to bear arms, was ratified in 1791. Virginia is one of 44 states that have the right to “bear arms” embedded in their own constitutions. Virginia’s law reads much like the U.S. Constitution.

Fast forward to 2020, where freedom takes a sharp left turn. Virginia’s democrat governor and attorney general have cancelled ‘The Nation’s Gun Show,’ scheduled for this weekend, November 20, 21 & 22 at the Dulles Expo Center. Read the notice here. The event was expected to draw 25,000 people who intended to exercise not only their First Amendment rights to assemble freely, but also their Second Amendment rights.

Attorney General Mark Herring is a gun restrictionist who repeatedly refers to constitutional firearms proponents as “the gun lobby,” as seen in this earlier press release.

Gov. Ralph Northam, another democrat, was able to get seven of his gun control bills passed in the Virginia House of Delegates as reported by Breitbart News.

Northam, who opposes the death penalty for the most vicious criminals, can’t pretend his opposition to the Second Amendment is to save lives. As SRAZ previously pointed out, Northam, a onetime medical doctor who specialized in pediatric neurology, condones abortions up until birth, more correctly described as infanticide.

Hypocrisy has its home in the democrat party.

REMINDER TO OUR READERS: SRAZ has established a new policy. The word “democrat” or its derivatives will no longer be capitalized on this site.


Joe Biden the “Complicated Catholic”

October 4, 2020

Regardless of your faith, this enlightening article,Biden and Barrett and ‘Complicated’ Catholics,“ by Tim Graham is a must read.

Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett, 48, has been nominated by President Trump to the U.S. Supreme Court to fill the recent vacancy created by the September 18, 2020 death of 87-year-old Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Judge Barrett, a mother of 7, has been relentlessly attacked for her deeply held adherence to her Catholic faith, to which convenient Catholic Joe Biden gives lip service.  

National Right to Life has denounced Joe Biden for his taxpayer funded abortion-on-demand stance and his promise to only appoint Supreme Court Justices who advance the reprehensible practice of killing pre-born children — enshrined in the Democrat Platform — which commits to restoring federal funding to Planned Parenthood.

This single paragraph, in which they claim to speak for “the majority of Americans,” taken intact from a lengthy portion, is directly from the Democrat’s 2020 Platform, which uses the deceptive term “reproductive health” to describe their devotion to abortion:

“Democrats are committed to protecting and advancing reproductive health, rights, and justice. We believe unequivocally, like the majority of Americans, that every woman should be able to access high-quality reproductive heath care services, including safe and legal abortion. We will repeal the Title X domestic gag rule and restore federal funding for Planned Parenthood…”

RNC Night 3: Pres. Trump acclaimed by powerful, diverse speakers

August 27, 2020

Wednesday night’s theme “Land of Opportunity,” couldn’t have been more fitting. The opening prayer was offered by Rabbi Aryeh Spero, a dedicated supporter of Pres. Donald J. Trump.

Vice President Mike Pence, Second Lady Karen Pence, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, Kellyanne Conway, Keith Kellogg, Jack Brewer, Madison Cawthorn, Scott Dane, Clarence Henderson, Ryan Holets, Michael McHale, Burgess Owens, and Lara Trump all spoke fervently in support of the president.

The impressive list of speakers included numerous women, including one who was unknown and another we are accustomed to seeing at press conferences, who stunned with her personal story.

Sister Dede Byrne, is a surgeon, who served as a Colonel in the U.S. Army Medical Corps and ultimately as a nun with Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts, all the while providing medical care. Her appearance at the GOP Convention on behalf of pro-life President Trump, added a compelling dimension to the list of speakers that included political and sports leaders.

We know Kayleigh McEnany as the White House press secretary and Harvard Law School graduate, but didn’t expect the personal story she shared.

Juxtapose the insights and profound commitment these distinct voices bring in their support for Pres. Donald Trump’s reelection against the fact that Joe Biden, first elected in 1970, has accomplished nothing other than advocating for bigger government, higher taxes, echoing the BLM mantra of defunding the police and less freedom. Biden, who often appears incoherent, remains silent on the rioters, looters, arsonists and murderers destroying lives and American cities. He has repeatedly offended black Americans, most recently with his noxiously insulting statement, “If you vote for Trump,you ain’t black.” Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones, a black, lifelong Democrat, speaking in support of Pres. Trump, disagrees with Biden.

Arizonans Republicans are all too familiar with political duplicity, and pay it little heed. Jeff Flake, a single-term U.S. Senator came out against Pres. Trump and saw his own approval numbers plummet to 18%, causing him to abandon his reelection campaign. The aptly named Flake, hungry for attention, has no constituency other than his own flakey has-been echo chamber, as detailed in this Daily Caller article.

Businessman Donald Trump ran for the presidency and was elected over a career politician in 2016. With our help, he’ll do it again.


Dem platform demonizes “whites,” elevates BLM

July 30, 2020

Democrats are busy drafting their party’s national platform in advance of the August 17 – 20, 2020 Milwaukee convention. Politico has published the draft version that is bound to shock White leftists and high dollar donors who think they are integral to their party. It begins by paying homage to the Tribal Nations who are described as the stewards of the indigenous homelands known as Wisconsin.

Rather than offering substance, President Donald Trump and his administration are blasted throughout the 80-page document. The President of the United States is referred to as a “crass, craven and corrupt leader.” Pushing Socialist George Soros’ ideal of “Criminal Justice Reform,” there is no crime too heinous to be worthy of what they call “unjust sentences.” It is doubtless the first party platform to specifically mention “transgender and non-binary people” and specifically “Black transgender women.” The platform supports “Black Lives Matter,” which is tantamount to endorsing the criminality and violence that has overtaken American cities.

Dems not only support abortion “rights,” but also Second Amendment restrictions. Their platform includes the stated “belief” that “gun companies should be held responsible for their products, just like any other business, and will prioritize repealing the law that shields gun manufacturers from civil liability.”

Paul Bedard, “Washington Secrets” columnist for the Washington Examiner, titles his column, “Democratic National Committee platform mentions ‘whites’ 15 times, all damning.” It’s a must read and especially clarifying for those, like every family’s doddering Uncle Walt, who mistakenly think there’s not much difference between the two parties.

Bedard notes “whites are mentioned 15 times, all critical, including three references to white supremacy or supremacists and one to white nationalists. The document doesn’t capitalize white as it does Black, Latinos, Asian Americans, and Native Americans.” In a numbered list he details the negative references to whites.

For a memory jogger Seeing Red AZ gifts our readers with a post containing the shocking video from the 2012 Democrat National Convention, which we titled,Chaos reigns as Dems boo God, Jeer Jerusalem.” Both the post and the embedded video are brief but serve as stark reminders of not only who the Democrats are, but how the embarrassed party leadership had to manipulate the vote on the passage of the platform following three votes and were loudly denounced by the delegates.


Planned Parenthood endorsed “conservative” Rodney Glassman

July 27, 2020

RETAIN EDDIE COOK AS ASSESSOR

Rodney Glassman, who has repeatedly and unsuccessfully run for public office as a Democrat, is back again, this time as self declared ‘conservative” running for Maricopa County Assessor. Just two years ago in 2018, Glassman carried the union label as he appeared on the UFCW Local 99 endorsement list along with Democrats running for statewide, congressional, district and school board elections.

Glassman, who bears no allegiance to any party or position, is a political opportunist who can magically transform himself better than Erik Weisz who morphed into Houdini.

Misguided conservatives who are supporting him might be surprised to know that in his previous political incarnations, he was the darling of both local and national Planned Parenthood leadership. In 2012 when Democrat Glassman ran for the U.S. Senate challenging John McCain, he won the endorsement of both Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona:

“This election is crucial, and we need leaders in the U.S. Senate who will stand strong against attempts to restrict women’s access to basic health care and who will champion policies that make that health care more available to all women,” said Cecile Richards, then-president of the national Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “Rodney Glassman’s record of public service and charitable giving stands on its own, and he is a proven advocate for women’s health and rights.”

To pro-abortion advocates, women’s “reproductive health care and rights” is code talk for the unrestricted ability to kill pre-born human babies.

“The voters in Arizona are tired of politics as usual from their elected officials who represent them in Washington,” said Bryan Howard, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona. “They want to elect a champion of women’s health, and Rodney Glassman is that candidate. He is committed to standing up for women and families by putting commonsense health care needs ahead of ideology and politics.”

Incumbent Maricopa County Assessor Eddie Cook is a man of integrity, a reliable, conservative community leader, technology expert and former member of the Gilbert Town Council where he served for nearly a decade. Cook was unanimously appointed by the Board of Supervisors as Maricopa County Assessor over 10 other GOP applicants — including Glassman — when his predecessor was removed after being charged with adoption related felonies in multiple states. Eddie Cook is restoring trust and accountability to the office, eliminating waste and saving taxpayers money. Take time to read his priorities and accomplishments.

This is an important election. It’s crucial to retain Eddie Cook as Assessor.  Don’t be conned by the biggest signs placed by wealthy political changeling Rodney Glassman, desperate for a win to use as a launching pad for grander schemes. His current intent is to buy his way into office…any office…to facilitate his future plans.

Primary Election Day is Tues. Aug. 4, 2020. Polls will be open from 6:00 AM – 7:00 PM. The last day to vote early in person is Fri. July 31. Mail back early ballots by Wed. July 29. Maricopa County residents can cast a ballot at any Vote Center. Location information here.


Reckless Schumer threatens Supreme Court Justices

March 5, 2020

Addressing a gathering of abortion supporters outside the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday, an out-of-control Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) issued threats against the two most recently appointed justices. The court is hearing arguments in a challenge by a Louisiana abortion clinic to a state law passed in 2014 requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges to a hospital within 30 miles of their facilities.

Democrat Schumer’s wild rant began with these intimidating words: “I want to tell you, [Neil] Gorsuch, I want to tell you, [Brett] Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

In this unusual written comment, Chief Justice John Roberts responded, “Statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous.” Justice Roberts added, “All members of the Court will continue do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter.”         

Schumer, a U.S. Senator with a Harvard law degree — though he never practiced law, opting instead for a political career — would be expected to have more decorum, but that attribute is in short supply among repressive* Democrats these days. They are tormented by the realization that their leading presidential candidates are Marxists or suffering from dementia. Immensely popular President Donald Trump, whom they failed to remove, is delivering on his promises including a growing economy, historically high employment, superb judicial appointments to the federal and Supreme Court benches. Acquaint yourself with his unparalleled list of accomplishments here.

Obviously lacking a sense of decorum and propriety, Schumer has long been described as an “incorrigible publicity hound.” Former Sen. Bob Dole once quipped that “the most dangerous place in Washington is between Charles Schumer and a television camera.” 

In the case of his despicable behavior at the Supreme Court, the least he deserves is censure.

* SRAZ is waging a campaign against the word “progressive,“ which liberals decided to use to make them appear forward thinking. They are not forward thinking, but are regressive on nearly every level. When conservatives use the word, “progressive,” they are playing directly into the hard left’s hands and doing their bidding. Regressive is a more appropriate description.


Pres. Trump ignites enthusiastic Phoenix crowd

February 20, 2020

Reiterates his unequivocal endorsement of Sen. Martha McSally

President Donald Trump swooped in to the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix Wednesday evening to thunderous applause and cheers after speaking earlier in Nevada and California, with a return trip to Las Vegas that same might, where the Democrat debate was an internecine bloodbath — and in advance of Saturday’s Democrat caucus. Rather than being weary from the travel and speeches, he was energized, and that energy ignited the massive crowd inside and the overfill throng of thousands outside the Phoenix arena, some waiting for two days to ensure access to hear President Trump. The coliseum has a seating capacity of nearly 15,000.

He fittingly assessed the party of his strange lot of Democrat opponents, by calling it out as, “The party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late-term abortion, socialism, blatant corruption, and the total destruction of your Second Amendment.” He contrasted the Republican Party as, “The party of the American worker, the American family, and the American dream!” 

Opening for President Trump were Donald Trump, Jr. and attorney and political analyst Kimberly Guilfoyle, who addressed the eager crowd. He was introduced by AZ GOP chairman Dr. Kelly Ward. When the president took to the stage, the coliseum rocked with roaring appreciation. Pres. Trump recounted some of his accomplishments, such as appointing a record 218 federal judges and nominating two new justices to the U.S. Supreme Court, and the continued construction of the border wall to appreciative cheers as he referred to the strong economy American have enjoyed and the historically highest employment figures.

Joining him at the onset of the event were Gov. Doug Ducey and Arizona’s Republican U.S. Senator Martha McSally. He also introduced the GOP Congressional Delegation of U.S. Reps. Paul Gosar, (CD4); Andy Biggs, (CD 5); David Schweikert, (CD 6); and Debbie Lesko, (CD 8) who spoke to the crowd and named standout AZ state legislators, who joined him on stage.  Former sheriff Joe Arpaio, running for reelection, was greeted by thunderous cheers and applause as he made his way to his front row seat. The president warmly acknowledged our military including a 100-year-old World War II navy veteran, Ervin Julian, who had to be carried into the coliseum, so great was his desire to be on hand to greet President Trump.

Trump repeated, in the clearest of terms, his support for Sen. Martha McSally, saying, Martha McSally has my “complete and total support, and has my endorsement.”

Those words shoot holes through inexperienced and brash Daniel McCarthy’s contention that Trump’s endorsement of McSally was given prior to McCarthy entering the race. McCarthy uses the theme,Demand Daniel,” (interview video) though those who are making that demand must be so far down the rabbit’s hole they are impossible to hear.

President Trump closed his remarks by declaring, “Ladies and gentlemen of Arizona, the best is yet to come!” It’s a cinch to believe his second term will prove his prediction to be flawless.

 


Leftist reporter distressed over Dem Sen. candidate Mark Kelly

February 18, 2020

The sky must be falling.

What else could explain that Seeing Red AZ would agree with anything written by Laurie Roberts, the local newspaper’s former sob-story-queen turned self-styled political maven? Her unfailingly radical skew is as predictably ill-fitting as a left shoe mistakenly forced on the right foot. 

But we have to give Roberts her due for the column titled,Mark Kelly would be OK with Bernie Sanders as president? Yikes,” in which she chastises the Uncle Fester look-alike for not bailing on Bernie.

From her twisted vantage point, extremist and Second Amendment obliterater Mark Kelly, now a Democrat candidate for the U. S. Senate is a moderate. This judgment error nonetheless causes her to hyperventilate and gnash her teeth in horror, since Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, proudly describes himself as a Socialist. In 1988, he and his bride even honeymooned for 10 days in the Soviet Union basking in the glories of Communism following his election as mayor of Burlington, Vermont.

Like the spurned party in a love triangle, Roberts now demands Kelly disavow Sanders, which the smitten Kelly refuses to do.

Count on this: Trump despising Laurie Roberts will end up taking whatever Uncle Fester dishes out. She has nowhere to go. There are no shelters for battered columnists.

The rest of us will stick with the results-producing, pro-life President who has presided over a spectacular economy and the lowest unemployment rates in U.S. recorded history. He’s kept his promises made to the American people, and has put conservative judges on the Federal bench and the U.S. Supreme Court.

 President Trump is returning to Phoenix Wednesday for a “Keep America Great” rally. Those who have attended previous events know the genuine excitement he generates among his supporters. Fortunately, Phoenix attendees won’t have to camp out overnight in snow and rain as was the case preceding his recent appearance in New Hampshire. But we eagerly waited in line for hours in the blistering July heat to hear then-candidate Trump in 2015, and were so energized, we helped put him in the White House.
