Democrats engage in violent identity politics as truth takes a back seat to “tribalism”

Dana Loesch, NRA national spokesperson and syndicated talk radio host, appeared on Tucker Carlson’s program Wednesday evening. Their discussion centered on the increasingly violent and fanatical responses of the left in their “resistance” movement and quest to impeach President Trump — just four months following his inauguration.  This brief segment is enlightening. Take time to watch it,


Pres. Donald Trump wows Atlanta NRA crowd

April 29, 2017

Declaring he is proud to be the first president to address the NRA since Ronald Reagan in 1983, President Donald Trump told the convention of Second Amendment defenders on Friday, “Your activism helps safeguard our freedoms.”

The NRA’s endorsement of Republican candidate Trump in May 2016 was the earliest in the organization’s history.  He was greeted with appreciative applause and cheers throughout his speech, but they reached a crescendo when he reminded the NRA members, “Only one candidate came to speak to you, and that person is the President of the United States, speaking to you today.”

The National Rifle Association has more than 5 million members. Those in the audience at the Leadership Forum heard President Trump pledge, “No longer will the government come after lawful gun owners.”

Trump reaffirmed his support of the Second Amendment and gun rights during his keynote speech. “You came through for me,” Trump said, referencing the strong support he received from the NRA during the presidential election. “And I am going to come through for you.”

“The eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end,” Trump said to enthusiastic cheers. “You have a true friend and champion in the White House.”

“To the NRA, I can proudly say: I will never, ever let you down.”

Refurbishing of RINO Flake begins

March 31, 2017

Jeff Flake’s liberal image: The facts speak for themselves

Jeff Flake is running for reelection in 2018, but first he needs to figure a way to infect Arizona Republicans with pre-election amnesia. We need to forget his repeated declaration that he would not vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. In fact, he haughtily declared Trump “can’t and shouldn’t win.  Flake’s positions have left him with weak support, that even his often inappropriate grin can’t undo.

Now the AZGOP Daily Update, a creation of GOP state chair Jonathan Lines — billing itself as “The Only Official Newsletter of the Arizona Republican Party!” (Italics and exclamation point theirs) — which many regard as a slam at the popular Republican Briefs —- exhibits not only a chronic case of memory loss, but an acceptance of Flake’s marginal Republicanism.

Know this: There is not an iota of difference between Flake and McCain. They both relentlessly push amnesty for illegals, and maintained close relationships with then-President Barack Obama. Flake has colluded with liberals on gun controlMcCain advised Obama on forging his legacy. Flake met with Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s Supreme Court pick and actually opined that it was time to start thinking about confirming him.

The AZGOP Daily Update has taken up the whitewash, posturing with this redundant headline, “McCain and Flake Look To Help Law Enforcement Against Criminal Illegal Aliens,” obviously forgetting that ALL illegals are criminals — entering our country by stealth. Imagine that a group broke into your home while you were at work, helped themselves to everything you’ve worked to obtain— demanded you educate their kids and provide them health care and other benefits. When you returned home they wanted your car keys to pick up some friends to join the festivities. That’s what we’re dealing with as a nation.

Arizona’s devious senate duo tout their introduction of a bill “to continue the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) providing reimbursements for state, local, and tribal governments to offset the costs of incarceration for certain undocumented criminal aliens.”  Such a swindle should be renamed to form the acronym SCAM, which more honestly describes the conveniently timed bill.

Jeff Flake is a Libertarian who initially ran as a Republican to get elected.  He’s definitely not a conservative. His progressively close ties with Democrats are only scuttled when elections roll around.

And octogenarian John McCain? His amnesia is indistinguishable from senility (video). An economic wizard, he’s pushing for the elimination of dollar bills, replacing them with dollar equivalent coins claiming such a move will save nearly $14 billion in taxpayer money and generate at least $4.4 billion. He doesn’t explain how.  He’s already forgotten the dollar coins that were costly flops. One named for Lewis and Clark’s Shoshone Indian guide Sacagawea, was minted in 2000 and its predecessor the Susan B. Anthony coin, minted from 1979 to 1981, were impracticable and unpopularexactly like Jeff Flake, as reported by .AZ Family Channel 3 TV.


Jeff Flake: Reaping what he has sown

February 23, 2017

jeff_mcflake_ii

As he gears up for a reelection bid, Jeff Flake is meeting with opposition — not from Democrats — but from within the Republican Party. A first term U.S. Senator, who previously spent 6 terms in the U.S. House — after reneging on his own term limits pledge made during his first campaign for Congress in 2000.  Flake ran as a citizen legislator, vowing that if elected, he would serve three two-year terms. But the heady atmosphere of Washington, DC became irresistible for Flake. Redistricting made him immune to major challengers.

Flake’s refusal to endorse Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was followed by his repeated declaration that he would not vote for Trump. In fact, he haughtily declared Trump can’t and shouldn’t win.

Junior Senator Flake’s anti-Trump fixation closely followed his mentor John McCain, still seething over his 2008 presidential drubbing. His rage is even more inflamed by the fact that Donald Trump, who has never held political office, rode the wave of populism to the White House this past fall.

Since Trump’s ascension McCain has hammered him mercilessly, even referring to him as a “dictator.” In a move of outlandish proportions, McCain has tried to link Trump to Russia and charged Russian “hacking” of the election was an “act of war.” Russia did not intrude on our election. But the Wikileaks information damaged his scandal-plagued friend Hillary Clinton irreparably. McCain had previously referred to her as a “rock star” he could support.

What the duplicitous hypocrite McCain neglected to mention was his own request for campaign donations from Russian officials — which they turned down. The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft has the full story, including shocking, verifying links.

We recommend reading the hard charging  report, Tough Primary Road Ahead for Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake,”by John Gizzi, New Max’ chief political columnist and White House correspondent.

Jeff Flake was originally shoehorned into the senate seat through the diligent efforts of retiring Sen. Jon Kyl and John McCain.  Even with their assistance he barely squeaked into office by a mere 3 percentage points.

There is not a hair’s breadth of difference between Flake and McCain. They both relentlessly push amnesty for illegals, maintained close relationships with then-President Barack Obama  — Flake traveling with Obama to Kenya and  Cuba, and playing as a regular in the White House basketball games. Flake has colluded with liberals on gun control. McCain advised Obama on forging his legacy. Flake met with Democrat Merrick Garland,  Obama’s Supreme Court pick and actually opined that it was time to start thinking about confirming him.

So you think you know Jeff Flake? Think again,” was posted July 2016. Knowledge is power.

2017: The New Year we’ve been waiting for

December 31, 2016


happy_new_year

Seeing Red AZ sends sincere best wishes for a satisfying, productive, safe and healthy New Year to our valued readers. As Americans, we’ve endured eight long years of the most disastrous presidency imaginable.

From Barack Obama’s failed dealings with Iran, funding the America-hating dictatorship with $33 Billion and making it nuclear capable, while backstabbing Israel at the U.N., to overseeing the growth of ISIS foolishly calling it a “JV Team.” He gave us the lie-based Obamacare and steadfastly refuses to say the words “radical Islamic terrorism.” His commitment is to flooding the United States with illegal aliens and unable to be vetted Middle Eastern “refugees.” His efforts to constrain our Second Amendment rights, to his obsessive use of Executive Orders bypassing Congress and disseminating phony stats on job numbers in our still struggling economy to giving credibility to the Black Lives Matter thugs by inviting them to the White House. The list goes on.

Although Obama twice swore an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, he intentionally failed to do so. His stated intent was to fundamentally transform the most free, prosperous and generous nation on Earth.

In three weeks we have a fresh beginning with Republican President Donald Trump and newly elected Republican House and Senate majorities — an undisputable repudiation of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, his choice to implement his third term.

As we embark upon this New Year, there is no better time to renew our acquaintance with America’s founding documents: The Declaration of Independence, our U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

They have served us well. The least we can do is stay familiar with what they contain, hold our Republican congressional majorities accountable and ensure that our children know what blessings we have been given as a nation.


Trump’s Sec. of State pick crucial: Listen to advisers on this one

December 8, 2016

The initial intrigue surrounding President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of Secretary of State is drifting off into the land of frustration. Conservatives who previously had their interest piqued waiting to see who would be tapped for the key post are less than fond of shameless, name-calling Trump detractor former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Watch as Romney lopes away from questioning reporters after meeting with Trump.

The fact that the duplicitous Romney traveled to Arizona on multiple occasions to support John McCain‘s re-re-re-re-re-reelection for another 6-year senate term in his 80’s, does little to win him praise from Trump’s stalwart base. McCain withdrew his lukewarm endorsement of Trump prior to the presidential election. Jeff Flake, show-boater extraordinaire, refused to endorse the Republican nominee.

Also under consideration for Secretary of State is David Petraeus, former general and C.I.A director, who has also met with Trump. Still on probation (Court Order linked in news report) for revealing classified information, he would need authorization to move to D.C. But the real deal breaker is his teaming up with former AZ U.S. Rep. Gabby Gifford’s hypocritical husband Mark Kelly, to form a gun control group, bearing the slick sounding name, “The Veterans Coalition for Common Sense.” Let’s face facts, evidence of “common sense” flies out the window when the Second Amendment is constrained. Bearing Arms uses some tough but accurate language to describe the new gun control group for veterans.

John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations or Rudy Giuliani, a steadfast Trump loyalist and former New York City mayor are much better choices than either Mitt Romney or David Petraeus.

After liberal heads were spinning following Donald Trump’s exercise of diplomacy in his phone call with the president of Taiwan, John Bolton summed the move up perfectly, saying “the president of the United States will talk to whomever he wants if he thinks it’s in the interest of the United States, and nobody in Beijing gets to dictate who we talk to.” Trump later tweeted “Did China ask us if it was OK to devalue their currency (making it hard for our companies to compete), heavily tax our products going into their country (the U.S. doesn’t tax them) or to build a massive military complex in the middle of the South China Sea? I don’t think so!”

Godfather enthusiasts will recall Michael Corleone saying, “Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.” In some circumstances there might be some validity to that adage, but not when you’re the President of the United States and selecting a top adviser. Trustworthiness and loyalty should also be considerations.
