Dem think is mind-bogglingly arrogant

April 6, 2016

The Politico article Clinton aides unite on FBI legal strategy, appears innocuous enough. It describes the fact that a quartet of Hillary Clinton’s former staffers are using the same lawyer during the FBI probe into her reckless use of a private, unsecured server, based in her home — compromising national security data.

Readers must slog through over a dozen paragraphs before the interesting details regarding lawyer Beth Wilkinson emerge. She is not only a high dollar Clinton donor, but also gives generously to the Democrat Party. Potential conflicts aside, Wilkinson is the wife of CNN leftwing political analyst and former “Meet the Press” host, David Gregory. You might recall the dynamic duo send their children to the exclusive and heavily protected Sidwell Friends school in Washington, D.C., but hypocritically want to restrict the rest of us from possessing firearms. 

Have some good rainy day fun visiting the Sunlight Foundation. It’s equality entertaining when the sun is shining — as is forecast today.

“Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants,” remains a much quoted observation of former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis. (1856 – 1941)


Philly Mayor’s bizarre reaction to ISIS inspired police shooter

January 9, 2016

CBS 3 Philly carries the report including the graphic photo of a gunman wearing what was described as Islamic garb brazenly attempting to assassinate a Philadelphia police officer in his squad car. The self-admitted ISIS inspired shooter has confessed to the act of depravity as the lone officer was making late night routine rounds.  

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney‘s response is mind-boggling. “There are just too many guns on the streets and I think our national government needs to do something about that,” he said.

The newly elected Democrat obviously missed the fact that the armed officer was able to save his own life and shoot his would-be murderer due to the fact that he was armed. It’s not “too many guns” that’s the problem. Gun violence is perpetrated by criminals not gun-owning, law-abiding citizens who are guaranteed their rights under the Second Amendment.

Kenney’s statement supports the skewed overreaches of Barack Obama, who announced yet another executive action earlier this week —bypassing Congress — to increase restrictions on gun owners and sales of firearms. Anyone “in the business” of selling guns also applies to a private citizen selling a firearm to his sister. Under current law, federally licensed firearms dealers are required to conduct background checks on potential firearm purchasers, but the executive action expands the definition of gun dealers.

In office less than a week, Mayor Kenney, who is assigned his own security detail, spent his first day reinstating dangerous sanctuary city policies which shelter illegal criminals from federal enforcement. Emulating Obama, Kenney signed inane executive orders, including one establishing the politically correct position of Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer — despite the astronomical rise in the violent crime rate in the Democrat run city once known as the City of Brotherly Love.

According to  this ABC 6 Action News coverage, the 2015 citywide murder and violence rate continued to skyrocket, with 692 people shot and 161 murdered by August.

Albert Einstein has been quoted as saying  the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. That’s a message the voters of Philadelphia should take to heart.

Obama’s brazen anti-gun agenda stifles 2nd Amendment

January 5, 2016

Arrogant executive action usurping congressional powers latest in series ranging from climate change to illegal immigration

The imperial Barack Obama, increasingly inclined to govern unilaterally — bypassing congress by use of his regal twins executive orders, and issuances of Presidential Memoranda is at it again.

This time instead of cozying up to communist dictators in Cuba and colluding to expand nuclear capabilities to Islamic madmen in Iran, he’s playing hardball with the U.S. Constitution. In attempting to curtail our Second Amendment freedoms, the lame duck president fully exposes what many Americans have long regarded as his contempt of our liberty.

Obama’s overreaches have resulted in a record number of firearms-related background checks — well over 23-million — last year. Records indicate that more guns were sold in 2015 than in any previous year in American history. In December alone, the FBI conducted 3,314,594 background checks, an increase of more than half a million checks over the previous single-month record set in December 2012.

Simply put, gun and ammo sales are surging because Americans have no confidence the government can protect them and their families and actually fear Obama’s repressive tactics.

Among Obama’s proposed firearm restrictions, curbs on gun purchases would extend to those accused of violence against current or former dating partners or those with temporary restraining orders. A gun-possession ban for Social Security beneficiaries who are believed incapable of handling their own finances is also included.

On Monday, Jan. 4, Barack Obama released this multi-pronged FACT SHEET: New Executive Actions to Reduce Gun Violence. Individual sales between two people will require the seller be a registered, licensed dealer, and submit to a background check any time they sell a gun from their private collection. Assessing mental health has become the purview of the government as doctors are asked to become informants.  

Hypocrisy is rampant. As they propose to diminish our Second Amendment rights, Obama and his family and the Clinton’s are secure with armed secret service protection.  Seeing Red AZ posted “Dem gun hypocrites,” in Dec. 2012, detailing the congressional liberals and double talking,  left-wing celebrities who have concealed carry permits and own firearms — which they support restricting us from accessing.   

The Second Amendment is about much more than simply carrying concealed, hunting, or sport shooting. Our right to keep and bear arms is a bulwark against tyranny.

So, it’s time for a bit of fun…or maybe not

January 3, 2016

Each year for the past 41 years, the wordsmiths at Lake Superior State University issue their List of Banished Words and Phrases.

The first list of words and phrases that people love to hate was compiled at a New Year’s Eve party in 1975, and published on Jan. 1, 1976.

The 2016 list of overused, incorrectly used and those that fall into the category of general uselessness can be viewed here beginning with the ubiquitous and meaningless “So” as a sentence starter. The history of Word Banishment is also entertaining.

We have added the following few and our astute readers are welcome to join in with their own selections of annoying words and phrases. Have some fun….it’s the weekend.

  1. WENT MISSING: Oddly used in news reports to describe someone who has disappeared. FELL ILL is similarly strange.
  2. AWESOME AND AMAZING: Teens with limited vocabularies inappropriately overuse these words. But when mature adults declare their kids or grandkids fall into the realm of “amazing,” or their truck is “awesome,“ we suggest finding new acquaintances.
  3. REALTOR®: This is the correct spelling of the trademarked word.  It does not have an “I” between the “L” and “T.”
  4. AT THE END OF THE DAY: Unless you’re in the cast of Les Misérables, steer clear of this cliché. Besides, it belongs to Karl Rove.
  5. MYSELF: Maeve Maddox the “American English Doctor” gives some outstanding advice regarding the misuse of personal pronouns in this section “Myself is Not the same as Me or I.”

Tomorrow we return to the hard news. Barack Obama has just returned from his lengthy annual Christmas Hawaiian vacation and is prepared to move aggressively — bypassing Congress —  to increase federal controls over American gun owners, restricting our Second Amendment Rights. His ultimate intent appears to be disarming and leaving us vulnerable in these most perilous of times.


Obama’s delayed, disappointing speech and UPDATE

December 8, 2015

Some long and hard thought was given to writing about Barack Obama’s speech, (video) delivered from the Oval Office on Sunday evening.  Several problems arose. Looming largest is the fact that his arrogance and conspicuous disregard for the United States of America — the nation he is supposed to be leading —- make it difficult to scrutinize his words using more integrity than he exhibits. Obama waited from Wednesday morning until Sunday night to address the jihadist terror attacks that killed 14 and wounded 21 others attending an office Christmas Party in San Bernardino.

Since clenched teeth and keyboard dexterity don’t go hand in hand, we gutlessly backed off that particular post.

As it turns out, that decision was a stroke of luck for the readers of Seeing Red AZ. Thomas Sowell did an extraordinary job in coolly analyzing, “The President’s Speech.”

If you are up to watching Obama broaden his gun control rhetoric or cunningly discuss the illusionary “65 countries that have joined an American-led coalition” against ISIS — which he persists in calling ISIL — the link in the first sentence will transport you to Obamaland, where heinous acts of terrorism are facilitated by…..climate change.

Americans are becoming weary of being told that Islam is a peaceful, tolerant faith merely plagued by a few extremists. Increased gun sales in the wake of bloody violence carried out by radicalized Muslims clearly point to angst among our own citizens.

Citizens looking for inspired leadership from the President of the United States, continue to be painfully disappointed. You’ll find far greater wisdom from Dr. Thomas Sowell.

Update-tag

Independent Journal headlines “Muslim Group Calls Out PC Culture for Being too Afraid to Take Down Islamic Extremism,” featuring an interview with Zuhdi Jasser, M.D. an Arizona physician and president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. Take time to listen to his reasoned thoughts on the problems we face.


Radical Islamic terrorism viewed thru liberal, conservative lens

December 6, 2015

We often use the header “Weekend Reading Guaranteed to Make You Smarter,” featuring a commentary by conservatives we admire. Today the format is different. We begin with this stellar video* which was Judge Jeanine Pirro’s ‘Opening Statement’ Saturday evening on Fox News. In making her case concerning the terrorist slaughter that occurred when young husband and wife radicalized Muslim assailants opened fire taking the lives of 21 people and wounding 14 others in San Bernardino, Judge Pirro sets out several sensible rules for Americans, and minces no words, stating unequivocally: “The jackals are at the door”

Now turn leftward. The New York Times takes the terrorist acts to another level. In publishing its first front page editorial since 1920, it took on gun violence, but not from the perspective of Islamic terrorism. The editorial board mixes apples and oranges comparing horrific acts of violence perpetrated by random maniacal killers to fomented anti-American hatred stirred up by radicalized jihadist butchers who despise our freedoms and American way of life.  Any senseless murder is abhorrent to decent people, but the two are not remotely in the same league. The NYT’s has one thing in mind: the confiscation of Second Amendment protected firearms.  The editorial plainly states, “It is a moral outrage and national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency.”  Firearms that actually save lives are reduced to “tools of macho vigilantism.”

Jihadists such as these are unworthy of mention, since the editorial declares “Motives do not matter:”

In July, a ‘devout Muslim’ attacked a military recruiting center in Chattanooga, Tenn. killing five unarmed recruiters.  The depravity was initially called an “act of domestic terrorism,” but the Obama administration, unable to utter the words “Islamic terrorism,” quickly changed the tone, referring to the slaughter as a “senseless act of violence.” Obama refers to the growing global threat of Islamic terror known as ISIS as a “JV team” that  has been “contained” while he foolishly authorizes more unvetted Syrian refugees to enter the U.S.

In 2014 a Muslim convert Alton Nolen beheaded a female coworker and attempted to kill another he had been trying to convince to convert to Islam.

The Tsarnaev brothers from the repressive Soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan had lived in the U.S. for nearly 10 years since their family was provided asylum. Still they killed 3 spectators including an 8-year-old boy cheering his father in the race, and blinded and maimed 264 others using homemade bombs they placed at the Boston Marathon in 2013. Sixteen people lost legs; the youngest amputee was a 7-year-old girl. The FBI said the brothers were motivated by extremist Islamic beliefs.

In 2009, a bloodbath took place at Fort Hood Army Base in which killed 13 people including a pregnant woman and injured more than 30 as shouts of “Allahu Akbar!” (Allah is greater”) rang out. The perpetrator was Nidal Hasan, a U.S. Army major and psychiatrist. He was also a radicalized Muslim terrorist. The Obama administration termed this slaughter, “workplace violence.”

The Religion of Peace website has a complete listing of Islamic jihadist murderers going back to 1972, including the 19 Muslim perpetrators who killed nearly 3,000 innocents on Sept. 11, 2001. Their carnage was also accompanied by shouts of “Allahu Akbar!”

Islamic Jihad comes to California

December 3, 2015

…..and liberal media diss God while promoting gun control

Liberal _press_disses_God

U.S. born devout Muslim, Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, recently traveled to Saudi Arabia and returned with Tashfeen Malik, 27, a wife he had met online. The California couple had a 6-month old daughter and appeared to be “living the American dream,” according to a co-worker.  The office where he worked and they committed the deadly carnage, gave a baby shower for Farook and he had taken paternity leave.

On Wednesday the couple, showed their gratitude by returning to slaughter 14 at his office Christmas party.

In 2012 we exposed the extremism at the Democrat national convention. This is what the liberal news media views as its base. Then hop over to read Dem gun hypocrites.
