Proof conservative AZ US Senate candidate Jim Lamon has dems running scared

February 2, 2022

Leftist newspaper begins hammering GOP candidate Jim Lamon in effort to keep anti-Second Amendment dem Mark Kelly in office

Politically astute Arizonans are keenly aware the local newspaper is in the tank for democrats, which has contributed to its current pathetic state. It’s continued to plummet for decades, though with Gene and Nina Pulliam running the Arizona Republic and Phoenix Gazette, the now defunct afternoon edition, the news took a decidedly conservative turn, as did their newspapers in Indiana. According to this biography in the Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame, the Pulliam’s eventually owned 50 newspapers. Today it’s impossible to imagine the newspaper that debuted in 1890 was originally bannered as the Arizona Republican.

Throughout his lifetime, Pulliam championed a free, independent press. “The basic foundations of the newspaper business are spiritual,” he is quoted as stating. “As newspaper people, we have got to preserve the freedom of the United States by always exercising our right to protect against those who could become bureaucratic despots.” His newspaper’s nameplates carried the motto, “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty.”

We provide this background to illustrate the deep plunge from the newspaper’s conservative and faith-based commitment to today’s undisguised leftist and vitriolic bent with constant venomous spews directed solely at Republicans.

Conservative GOP senate candidate and successful businessman, Jim Lamon is now in the newspaper’s crosshairs since he presents too well for the leftwing newspaper’s comfort, as he takes on George Soros and Barack Obama-supported, open border advocate, short-termer Mark Kelly, who is finishing out the remainder of John McCain‘s final term. Kelly has become wealthy not by creating a successful energy business that prioritizes employing American workers but by engaging in lucrative ventures with Communist China, recently showing its inclination to invade Taiwan and threatening Japan if it interferes with China‘s aggressive overtures.  Lamon has accomplished far more than being shot up in a rocket, which is now a fashionable deviation from the norm to those who have the ability to pay for the expensive ride. Read Jim Lamon’s impressive bio to clearly discern the difference. 

The radically leftist, Hillary-endorsing, Trump-despising newspaper has begun a double-dosing bile spew aimed at Jim Lamon, disparaging him in a two-page article, and in the same edition flinging incendiary word arsonist/columnist EJ Montini at Lamon.

The way the alarmed newspaper responds to a consistent conservative with a military background and heralded for his business acumen is to set the tiresome sniping machine in gear. Since few subscribers remain, it’s not difficult to ignore.


Tom Cotton: Proof citizens benefit with GOP U.S. Senators

January 7, 2022

Unlike Arizona, which has two democrat U.S. Senators, the residents of Arkansas are fortunate. They have Tom Cotton representing them in the U.S. Senate. His website makes it clear what his priorities are since the home page is titled, “Tom Cotton…Senator for Arkansas. His background is unique. Cotton grew up on a farm, graduated Harvard Law School, clerked on the U.S. Court of Appeals and spent two tours of duty in Iraq with the101st Airborne and in Afghanistan.

As a U.S. Senator Tom Cotton’s voting record is excellent. He also writes brilliantly, which is why SRAZ is directing our readers to this recent commentary which appeared on Townhall. Don’t be tempted to pass this by, to read at a later date. The knowledge contained in this article titled, “Recall, Remove & Replace Every Last Soros Prosecutor,” is critically important. 

Socialist billionaire George Soros abhors not only sovereign national borders, but also law enforcement. He funded the campaign of Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone, a democrat, by shoveling a cash infusion of $2.9 million into his campaign to unseat popular Republican Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had been elected to an unprecedented six 4-year terms.

Soros also funded ads attacking Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, whose campaign against unknown democrat Diego Rodriguez flew below the political radar until the billionaire put $1.3 million into the race against the incumbent. Montgomery retained his position and was later appointed to the Arizona Supreme Court. Soros spent $millions attempting to influence races across the United States. His anti-law enforcement agenda began gaining attention in 2016 when Politico exposed his scheme to overhaul the criminal justice system.

Currently, Arizona has two democrats in the U.S. Senate, supposedly representing the citizens of the state. Mark Kelly, who has conveniently misplaced his party affiliation, has lucrative ties to China, and is also a Second Amendment restrictionist. Kirsten Sinema has become a mixed bag. Though a radical leftist with a long track record, she now often aligns with democrat Joe Manchin (WV), who frequently upholds more conservative principles, such as protecting the filibuster,

The last time Arizona had two democrat U.S. Senators was when Ernest McFarland and Carl Hayden represented the state. Hayden had been the territorial sheriff and first ran for congress in 1911 in anticipation of Arizona’s 1912 statehood. He was born in Hayden’s Ferry, Arizona Territory, which was later renamed Tempe in 1878.

McFarland, born in 1894 had the distinction of being the only Arizonan to served in all three branches of government. In 1924 he was elected Pinal County Attorney. He was a U.S. Senator, Arizona governor and Arizona Supreme Court justice. He owned KTVK Channel 3, which he acquired in a sweet media deal with fellow democrat, then-Pres. Lyndon Johnson, who also signed the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967. To put this timeline in context, both Hayden and McFarland joined the military during World War I.

PBS, chiefly funded by tax dollars, is a reliable propaganda arm for the democrat party. A 2014 Pew Research Survey found that 60% of PBS’s audience is consistently or mostly liberal, 26% mixed, and 15% consistently or mostly conservative.

Seeing Red AZ supports conservative businessman Jim Lamon for the U,S. Senate.


Biden regime now assaults 2nd Amendment

January 4, 2022

Jan 4, 2022 Presidential approval rating reveal 58% disapprove of Biden’s job performance as Pres. Trump schedules AZ rally

The Biden regime is not satisfied with the catastrophic economy exemplified by record high inflation, a national security crisis at our southern border and faulty decisions that have made us dependent on foreign oil after shutting down the Keystone Pipeline, which cost thousands of Americans their jobs. The botched withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan was an unprecedented, international disaster. We also witness expanded cases of Covid virus variants in addition to the single one which Biden claimed to end once elected. These calamities and numerous others, all come gift wrapped in increased government regulations, further constricting our freedoms.

As expected, the Second Amendment is now openly under assault. The  Department of Justice, overseen by Biden’s radical leftist, pro-abortion, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, issued this media release on Monday, couched in euphemisms but clearly intended to restrict our Second Amendment rights. Carrying the unwieldy title, “Justice Department Announces New Rule to Help Enhance Safe and Secure Storage of Firearms; Publishes Best Practices Guide for Federal Firearms Licensees,” it is well worth your time.

Americans are paying attention.

Rasmussen Reports presidential polling released today (January 4, 2022) reflects the lack of confidence American voters have in Joe Biden as his approval rating continues to tank. The respected polling site states, “Only 40% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Biden’s job performance. Fifty-eight percent (58%) disapprove. The latest figures include 19% who Strongly Approve of the job Biden is doing and 48% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -29.”

Former President Donald Trump has scheduled a Save America rally Saturday, January 15, 2022 in Florence, Arizona, at Country Thunder Festival Grounds. Time, address and ticket information is available here.


Kyle Rittenhouse: Cleared of all charges by unanimous jury

November 20, 2021

…despite Biden unconscionably labeling him a “white supremacist

Yesterday, Nov. 19, 2021, now 18-year-old Kenosha, Wisconsin resident Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of multiple felony charges by a unanimous jury, after three days of weighing all the evidence in the high-profile homicide case. Rittenhouse shot three men, fatally wounding two and injuring one, during a violent street riot. At the time, Joe Biden bizarrely referred to him as a “white supremacist,” though the then-17-year-old and the victims were all white.

Rittenhouse’s defense team asserted he was in fear for his life as he was charged by a 36-year-old aggressive man — lighting fires in nearby dumpsters, who grabbed for the rifle held by Rittenhouse — posing an eminent threat to the teen.

This descriptive paragraph is from the New York Post report by James Gagliano, which should be read in its entirety:

“Rittenhouse attempted to avoid and evade each one of his attackers — none of whom he targeted. Whether verbally threatening and attempting to disarm him (Joseph Rosenbaum), using a skateboard as a weapon with attempted disarmament (Anthony Huber) or pointing a pistol (Gaige Grosskreutz), each man shot was the aggressor in the encounter. The jury certainly recognized these facts.”

This is Biden mouthpiece Jen Psaki trying, and failing miserably, using the royal “we,”as she attempts to answer reporter Peter Doocy, who asked, “Why did President Biden suggest that Kyle Rittenhouse … is a white supremacist?”

Biden’s recent polling: Worse than abysmal

November 14, 2021

Real Clear Politics’ polling aggregator uniquely has its finger on America’s political pulse as it reviews all the major surveys on various issues this past week.

In simplifying the polls for our readers, we’ll take you directly to the topics:

President Biden Job Approval – Economy: Approve 38.7 / Disapprove 53.9

President Biden Job Approval – Immigration;  Approve 29.4 / Disapprove 57.9

President Biden Job Approval – Foreign Policy: Approve 31.1 / Disapprove 52.7

Pulic Approval of President Biden’s Handling of the Coronavirus: Approve 47.2 /Disapprove 47.1

Direction of Country: Right Direction 29.6 / Wrong Tract 62.3

On Saturday, Nov. 13, 2021 The Des Moines Register conducted a poll in Iowa, long considered a political bellwether state…one that historically supports the ultimate winner. Former President Trump led Joe Biden by double digits.

Biden’s national and international bungling, wild spending and the economic disasters he has overseen have not escaped the notice of congressional and state office holding democrats who fear repercussions at the Nov. 8, 2022 midterm elections.

All 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and 34 of the 100 seats in the Senate will be contested. Ballotpedia provides this list of current Arizona office holders and the dates when their terms expire. It’s essential we regain a Republican majority. Responsible Arizona voters will have the opportunity to replace extreme leftist democrat Mark Kelly in the 2022 election. Senate terms are six years, ample time to do insurmountable damage. Kelly has received funding from Socialist billionaire George Soros, a One-Worlder who disdains national borders.

Second Amendment supporters should be aware Kelly heads a gun control money stream group he and his wife founded known as “Giffords PAC,” (originally Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC) specifically intended to elect Democrat gun control advocates to public office.


Tucson supports anti-2nd Amendment restrictions

July 7, 2021

Tucson, Arizona has long been known as the ‘People’s Republic of Pima’ due to its radically leftward bent, as democrats significantly outnumber Republicans.

It’s living up to that reputation as noted in this article in the Tucson Daily Star, written by Kathryn Palmer, headlined, “Tucson’s challenge to ‘2nd Amendment sanctuary’ law is latest in local control saga.” It details the collusion between Tucson Mayor Regina Romero and the accommodating Tucson City Council which unanimously passed a resolution saying the state of Arizona is not obliged to uphold federal gun laws.

The council’s action “prohibits the state and political subdivisions from using any personnel or financial resources to enforce, administer or cooperate with any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the U.S. government that is inconsistent with any Arizona law regarding the regulation of firearms,” effectively making Arizona a Second Amendment sanctuary state emulating the cites that provide “sanctuary” to illegal aliens. This is the council’s version of flipping off Second Amendment supporting citizens.

The City of Tucson has effectively thumbed its nose at Constitution supporting citizens and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signed the straightforward HB 2111 — titled, “Second Amendment Firearm Freedom Act” — into law. The bill, passed by the AZ House and Senate bars in-state enforcement of any federal firearm laws which violate the Second Amendment, by prohibiting police and sheriffs from enforcing federal gun laws that violate the 2nd Amendment.”

Join the NRA, which has protected America’s Second Amendment since its inception in 1871. It recently exposed, “Breaking News! Biden Plan to Combat Rising Crime Includes…Gun Control.”


Mark McCloskey, representing us all, announces for U.S. Senate

May 19, 2021

Republican Mark McCloskey made his campaign announcement on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson’s show Tuesday evening. The Federal Election Commission’s website shows “Mark McCloskey for Missouri” is registered, and a website, mccloskeyforsenate.com, seeks campaign donations.

Incumbent Missouri Republican Roy Blunt has announced he would not seek a third term.

If the name Mark McCloskey sounds only vaguely familiar, a bit of a memory jog is in order. Last July, he and his wife, Patricia, both Missouri lawyers, responded to a mob of several hundred Black Lives Matter marauders who initially broke down the barrier to a private residential street in the St. Louis suburb where they lived. Then, after hearing a commotion they saw the thugs, some armed, break down their private iron gate and congregate in their yard issuing threats.

As they watched the trespassers advancing through their property toward their home, the McCloskey’s grabbed their firearms and headed outside to confront them. Rioters, copying other anarchists across the nation, were using the death of newly martyred, multi-incarceration criminal George Floyd, to destroy swaths of St. Louis, burning buildings and looting stores.

Mark McCloskey said he feared his home was going to suffer a similar fate, and felt he needed to act to protect his family and property. He said the protesters were coming toward his house and didn’t stop until he displayed his AR-15, and his wife pulled out her pistol. McCloskey said both safeties were engaged on their guns. The rifle was later seized by police during a search.

The protesters with the guns told them they “were next” as the McCloskey’s demanded that they leave their property. Police did not respond to the couple’s calls for help, nor did the property’s private security. The couple felt they were on their own. The protesters even threatened to kill the couple’s dog. 

“Not a single person in the out-of-control mob you saw at our house was charged with a crime,” Mark McCloskey said. “But you know who was? We were.”

Video of the incident drew the attention of then-President Donald Trump, and the McCloskey’s were invited to speak at the 2020 Republican National Convention.

SRAZ covered the criminal invasion here, including background on Soros-funded — by nearly $200,000 — St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner, whose office filed felony charges against the couple, and the comments in support of the McCloskey’s by Missouri Gov. Mike Parson and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt.


Biden: “enough prayers, it’s time for action” on guns

April 9, 2021

2nd Amendment rights need protection as never before

In early March, Merrick Garland was confirmed by the senate in a 70-30 vote as U.S. Attorney General, fulfilling the wish of Barack Obama, Joe Biden’s master puppeteer. On his way out of office Obama unsuccessfully tried to slip the former federal appellate judge onto the U.S. Supreme Court.

If all was as it should be, Garland’s new position should put him in an untenable predicament when it comes to handling a federal probe into Biden’s son, Hunter. Federal investigators have been examining multiple financial matters, including whether Hunter Biden violated tax and money laundering laws in foreign energy business dealings. CEFC China Energy, which has links to the Chinese Communist Party, paid Hunter at least $5 million in 2017, according to this Senate report. Along the way, Hunter, who has acknowledged a cocaine addiction, has also developed memory loss regarding compromising information and photos on his laptop that was dropped off at a repair shop. His multiple, and fanciful explanations during a recent CBS interview can be read on The Daily Signal.

Ah, but we digress.

Newly installed U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland has been described as a Second Amendment skeptic, a too soft term for a dedicated restrictionist. On March 15, the NRA-ILA (Institute for Legislative Action) headlined its report, “U.S. House Bows to Biden, Passes Legislation to Cancel Your RIGHT to Obtain a Firearm.”

This is not hyperbole.

Frail and barely cognizant Biden, clearly still under Obama’s direction, has been filling key positions with anti-Second Amendment extremists as detailed here by Jason Ouimet, NRA-ILA Executive Director.

On Thursday Biden, joined by Merrick Garland, announced numerous executive actions aimed at  further restricting gun rights and advocating for red flag laws as he admittedly bypasses congress. This overreach should concern every American regardless of party affiliation. (Notice many of his Biden’s embarrassing gaffes remain in the printed version.)

Biden also announced his selection of David Chipman to serve as the Director of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the agency responsible for enforcing gun laws. Chipman was previously aligned with Giffords PAC, a gun control group that specifically funneled $millions to democrat candidates, committed to carrying out its mission. Giffords is former Arizona U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, whose husband Mark Kelly is now a George Soros aligned U.S. Senator.

America’s strongest safeguard against these far-left overreaches into our Constitutional right to gun ownership is the NRA. If you’re not already a member, join now. It’s never been more important. Our future depends on full dedication to the amendment our Founders put immediately after the first, which guarantees freedom of speech, and the right to peaceably  assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.  


Dems gear up 2024 campaign with $1.9 trillion “giveaway”

March 12, 2021

“Help is Here Tour” integral to democrat strategy

The Washington Examiner exposes the Biden/Harris administration’s effort to deploy an all-hands-on-deck messaging blitz to peddle the $1.9 trillion supposed coronavirus relief package to red states. And while they were indebting future generations, the radical left found time to ram through two restrictive gun control measures H.R. 8 and H.R.1446. The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, released this statement.

The pork laden legislation* was passed along party lines with not a single Republican supporting the exorbitant and unaffordable spending, 5000+ page monstrosity. The Washington Times exposed what it referred to as “Pork wrapped in a stimulus” using these words: “Only 9% of the nearly $2 trillion in spending is dedicated to coronavirus relief and the other 91% goes to money for the arts, humanities, transportation, abortion, loan forgiveness for students and “socially disadvantaged farmers.”

Be aware that the “Help is Here Tour,” is an early campaign strategy to ensure Kamala Harris will be elected president in 2024, though there is little doubt she’ll be in the Oval Office before then. Dems are banking on the distribution of $1,400 direct payments to millions of American households will be a winning election reminder. No one will be told that we will be owned by Japan and the Communist nation of China, since they hold the majority of our debt

With the onset of what was called the trade war in 2018, concern has risen over China possibly weaponizing its immense U.S. debt holding as a way to retaliate against trade tariffs. President Donald Trump began setting tariffs and other trade barriers on China with the goal of forcing it to make changes to unfair trade practices and intellectual property theft.

The Biden administration has encouraged House Democrats to “speak up and speak out” about their plan, acknowledging Barack Obama “paid a price” when public opinion turned against his stimulus legislation and Obamacare. Dems lost the House majority in 2010 and their Senate majority shriveled.

Biden ventriloquist Jen Psaki, posing as his press secretary, previously worked for Biden’s now string-pulling puppeteer Obama. She recently stated, “Any of my colleagues at the time would say that we didn’t do enough to explain to the American people what the benefits were of the rescue plan and we didn’t do enough to do it in terms that people would be talking about at their dinner tables. That’s one of the reasons we, of course, have been trying to break down the impact of the American rescue plan into the key components that will impact people directly.”  In other words, the administration leftists regard taxpaying American citizens who are funding this economic calamity as dolts who have to be incrementally spoon fed their extremist agenda.

Psaki then spoke glowingly about the coronavirus vaccines, for which the current administration attempts to take credit, hoping the American public will forget about President Trump’s implementation of Operation Warp Speed which accelerated COVID-19 vaccine development and distribution.

AZ newspaper maligns GOP elected officials, mischaracterizes legislation

March 1, 2021

SRAZ frequently reminds our readers that the Arizona Republic has deservedly hit hard times. As it became ever more emaciated even prior to becoming homeless, it swapped out longtime more costly employees for ASU journalism students with limited skills though packed with politically correct terminology.  A recent report used the touchy feely term “reached out” three times in a single article, with the word “contacted’ relegated to the trash heap. Steering clear of sex-based verbiage, headlines declare “a person was shot,” or “pregnant people” rather than women. Gannett’s stock which peaked at $91.00 on April 6, 2004, has plummeted to record lows, falling to $4.96 at the closing bell on February 26, 2021, providing proof positive that insulting their few remaining readers is not a good business model.

Subscribers began peeling away in record numbers after the ill-advised, presidential endorsement of deceitful Hillary …“despite her flaws.” The editorial board is so bonded to the left, it was unable to accurately gauge the solid support for Donald Trump, who sailed to victory in 2016.

Still it felt emboldened by the election of the two hard-left U.S. Senators Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema for the first time since 1953 when Barry Goldwater defeated Ernest McFarland and Carl Hayden, initially elected in 1926, finally retired from the senate in 1969 at age 91. Hayden was first elected Maricopa County treasurer and sheriff years before Arizona gained statehood in 1912, which underscores democrats’ bonding to political entrenchment.

Newly elected Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly, an open-border proponent with close and lucrative ties to China, is the founder of Giffords PAC, a Second Amendment restrictionist group targeting national Republican candidates, calling for stricter gun controls and vowing to gut what he refers to as “the gun lobby.” His fellow former astronauts blistered Kelly. Following Sinema’s deceptive path, slickster Kelly made no mention of his party affiliation in any of his campaign ads.

The two Republican members of congress the radical newspaper is currently targeting are Paul Gosar (CD4) and Andy Biggs (CD5) who serve alongside fellow conservatives David Schweikert, (CD 6) and Debbie Lesko (CD8). There was no ire expressed when a democrat candidate who lost her medical license due to deadly medical malpractice, carpetbagged across the Valley from her Glendale residence to run in a Scottsdale/Fountain Hills district against Schweikert, losing yet again, as she deceptively wore medical scrubs in her ads with a stethoscope around her neck.

In Sunday’s edition, Biggs rated multi-pages of abuse. Gosar, Schweilert and Lesko have all received similar contrivances, while their deceptive democrat counterparts, get the kid glove treatment. This morning editorialist Elvia Diaz haughtily advises Republican Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel to drop all charges against 15 violent BLM thugs, “to prove she’s not like…her Republican predecessors.”

Columnist E.J. Montini, a shill for the democrat party, feigns opportunities to deceitfully accuse Republicans of “voter suppression.”

The radically leftist Arizona newspaper never devoted a single word to Joe Biden being caught in cash for influence scandal which was initially exposed by the New York Post and further substantiated when son Hunter’s incriminating laptop revealed even more corrupt connections.

Help put the deceitful newspaper out of its misery. If you still subscribe to the Trump-hating, conservative-loathing Arizona Republic, it’s past time to cancel. Call 1-800-332-6733.
