America has a do-something president

October 14, 2017

James Buchanan was, rightly or wrongly, known as the “do nothing” president. With President Donald J. Trump, we have just the opposite, a president who is intent on fulfilling his promises to the American people that won him the 2016 election.

With steadfast determination, President Trump has been following through with his “”Make America Great Again” agenda. The large crowds he continues to generate as he travels the nation, are a testament to his ability to hold his supporters close.

This rankles the leftist media in unimaginable ways. On his to-do list are repealing and replacing Obamacare, which was shot down by the spiteful John McCain, who can’t get over the fact that Donald Trump achieved what he never will — the Presidency of the United States. USA Today, the free hotel throwaway, headlined its sneering report, “Piece by Piece, Trump tries to unravel Obamacare,”noting that the “president acts on his own.” 

Astute news followers will recall that such a complaint was never lodged against Barack Obama, who lived in a cocoon of presidential executive orders, bypassing congress whenever he felt constrained. McCain claims he voted in opposition to President Trump’s healthcare reform — with an obviously practiced and intended to shock, Roman emperor Caligula-style thumbs down vote against the gladiator begging for mercy in the arena — for that very reason. Yet McCain remained mute on all of Obama’s unilateral excesses as he ran the government by executive fiat.

The president wants to decertify the disastrous ‘Iran Nuclear Deal.’ entered Into by Barack Obama and his secretary of state, John Kerry — who sweetened the pot with cash infusions in the amount of $1.7 billion to the terrorist sponsoring nation in 2016. They also went against precedent not to be monetarily blackmailed for hostages, paying $400 million the same day Iran agreed to release four American prisoners. The U.S. is supposed to trust Iran’s claim that it will not develop nuclear weapons for at least a decade.

On Thursday the Trump administration said it would stop paying billions of dollars worth of reimbursements to health insurers to compensate them for out-of-pocket health discounts given to 6 million Obamacare customers. Arizonans on the failed system saw a 116 percent increase in premiums this year, the highest spike in the nation.

Addressing the Values Voter Summit an annual conservative conference on Friday, the president received thunderous applause when he noted our nation‘s Judeo-Christian values are under assault. He stated, “saying ‘Merry Christmas’ will be back in style.”

Tax cuts, which benefit the economy, are also on Trump’s agenda. Check out SRAZ’s Friday’s post with an exposé referencing another expected McCain sabotage.

Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) is quite a guy!

Massacre in Las Vegas: Deadliest in US history

October 2, 2017

59  dead, 527 injured in onslaught of machine gun fire that lasted over an hour

CNN is reporting that thousands of country music fans ran for cover as a gunman fired on them from a hotel on the Las Vegas Strip — a mass shooting that is now the deadliest in modern US history.

58 people were killed Sunday night when a gunman fired hundreds of bullets into the crowd, police said. 515 others were rushed to hospitals after the mass shooting and ensuing stampede at the outdoor Jason Aldean concert.

The gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, unleashed a hailstorm of bullets from the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay hotel, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said.

Paddock is believed to have killed himself in the hotel room filled with a cache of weapons.


September 11, 2001: We will not forget

September 11, 2017

Sixteen years ago today, 2,973 people were murdered by jihadist terrorists who commandeered two commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City. Another crashed into the Pentagon. The death toll includes 40 passengers and crew members aboard the fourth hijacked plane, United 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as courageous passengers rushed the cockpit in an attempt to apprehend the hijackers.

Along with our American citizens, people from 90 other countries were viciously slaughtered in the attacks committed by Islamo-fascist extremists. The lives of 343 firefighters and paramedics and  73 law enforcement officers were callously cut short as they heroically responded to the single deadliest incident in the history of the United States.

These  monsters, here on easily exploitable, often fake, foreign student visas, were able to commit these barbaric crimes against Americans on our own soil because those we have elected to represent us  have failed miserably in securing our porous national border and actually enforcing our laws.

Business Insider’s 2015 edition has 20 riveting photos from that catastrophic day.

Who would have thought that within a few short years after the horror perpetrated by Islamic jihadists who sought to brutalize us, a U.S. President — Barack Hussein Obama — would submissively bow to Muslim royals, and officially recognize the Muslim Brotherhood — a terrorist organization with familial ties to Al-Qaeda and Hamas, while systematically attempting to destroy the bedrock founding principles of our country? His election stands as a testament to apathetic, under-educated Americans and political correctness.

The November 2016 election changed that dynamic. President Donald Trump understands that Americans do not bow to foreign political or religious leaders. Trump won the presidency in large part on his promise to secure our border.

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have been hammering Texas and Florida with raging winds and torrential rains, disrupting lives and causing damage in multi $billions, a setback for the wall construction, but few doubt it will be accomplished.

In the meantime, teach your children and grandchildren the facts of September 11th. They are not getting this important information in school. It doesn’t fit the left’s ‘celebration of diversity’ playbook.

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum can be seen here  It’sTeach + Learnpages are critically important since too many young adults today are lacking basic information about the single deadliest incident in the history of the United States. On this day of remembrance, CNN provides Terror Attacks Facts.

Philosopher George Santayana .is noted for saying, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”


Farcical Flake fishes for puny funds as lobbyists keep him flush

August 31, 2017

Vast amount of his support comes from lobbyists, not the home folks

Have you received Jeff Flake’s latest solicitation email? His campaign is approaching what he calls his “end of the month fundraising goal,” and he says he wants to “check in” and “reach out.” He even calls us “friend” in a John McCain-like manner. Though he lives in a gated community far from the riff and raff, Flake even veers into corn-pone land with the salutation of “Hey,” as in “Hey Friend.”

Then comes the closer. You know…the car salesman time squeeze, telling you this extraordinary deal has a deadline. Flake gives us just 48 hours to hop aboard his ready-to-implode train. He tells us he only needs 18 supporters to help him reach his goal and advises recipients they don’t want to miss the opportunity to help him reach it. The best part of his financial fakery/campaign con is the tricky plea, “Every little bit makes a difference.” Then he asks for us to “chip in” with  $5 $10 or $25.

If 18 folks were to give Jeff the Jester $5, that would give him the princely sum of $90 bucks, surely enough to clear any hurdles. Especially as his latest FEC filings dated  01/01/2017 to 06/30/2017 show him a year out from the election having spent nearly half a million on operating expenses, mainly lodging, food and cabs.

But not to worry. His coffers are filled with $4,374,137.00 — over four and three-quarters of a million dollars. Additionally, Jeff Flake for U.S. Senate, Inc., (yes, it is a business) shows $527,428.00  in “transfers from other authorized committees,” (read: “lobbyists’) —  including  $262,015.20 from Cindy Hensley McCain’s Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc Political Action Committee.

Flake is doing just fine without receiving $5, $10 or $15 from those who are just scraping by. Does he  really need 18 donors to give him five bucks in the next 48 hours— a whopping $90? The vast majority of his donors fork over $2,700 a pop.

Lobbyists support Jeff Flake because he was one of them. Flake has no core. Prior to his political career, Flake worked as a lobbyist and registered foreign agent for Rossing Uranium — one of the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel — which operates a mine in the African country of Namibia where Flake did his LDS mission. Flake earned a substantial salary opening doors in D.C. and promoting the firm with deep financial ties to terror-sponsoring Iran.

In 2012 exhibiting pretzel-like repositioning on IranFlake was running to replace the retiring Jon Kyl. The League of Conservation Voters Victory Fund and Majority PAC launched an $800,000 television ad campaign outlining the risks of sending former uranium mining lobbyist Jeff Flake to the Senate.

Dr. Kelli Ward is the principled conservative in the 2018 AZ U.S. Senate race. Unlike Jeff Flake who refused to vote for Donald Trump, she stands with President Trump. She deserves our support.


Toppling monuments: Analyzing the radical leftist’s demands

August 20, 2017

This past week has provided most of us with too much political lunacy to digest. Wide-scale death and injury perpetrated by Islamic jihadists in Spain and Finland, North Korea, led by a madman is threatening a “merciless (nuclear) strike,” and here at home riots and bizarre demands made by the undereducated who are not only toppling historical Civil War monuments but now want to obliterate references to our nation’s founders — Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Madison and others who owned slaves. Today we all agree the practice, then legal, was reprehensible. It is a stain on our past, but one we brought to an end.

In a testament to the pathetic state of  American education with leftist union teachers falling down on the job of educating the students in their charge, a statue of President Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president and the man famed for emancipating slaves, was defaced and then burned. Rampaging liberals, intent on destruction, lack the facts to discern that it was Republicans such as Lincoln who emerged victorious in the brutal Civil War that put an end to slavery. Democrats fought to defend it.

The word “racist” is hurled with impunity. “Hate speech” — speech the left disagrees with — has become an unpardonable sin, no longer worthy of First Amendment protection. Universities, which should be the bastions encouraging and protecting free expression, shut down or disinvite speakers with whom their liberal students disagree. 

Our president is arriving in Phoenix for a rally on Tuesday, and two far left Democrat Arizona Congressmen will be acting as ring leaders ginning up an unruly mob to gain national attention, since they’ve accomplished  nothing worthy of note.

Jeff Flake: The image polishing begins anew

August 11, 2017

Large swaths of the world are in chaos. Islamic terrorists are committed to the slaughter of innocents with the ultimate goal of taking over the planet. A North Korean madman is threatening nuclear destruction. The leftist World Economic Forum cites catastrophic weather or the reliable fallback of Climate Change as the ‘most pressing’ risk looming in our future.

But the Arizona Republic sees things through a different lens. Now that it has satisfied its blood lust in relentlessly pursuing former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, it has other political fish to fry to fulfill its liberal agenda. 

Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) a Republicrat who spent decades in Washington colluding with Democrats, is suffering from what his Mayo Clinic doctors refer to as an “aggressive form of brain cancer.”  His days of negatively impacting the political scene are nearing an end. His kiss off to conservatives was casting the deciding vote against repealing Obamacare, a vengeful finger in the eye to President Donald Trump who he refused to support during the 2016 election.

 His like-minded junior senate partner, Jeff Flake, has been taking pre-election heat from every corner for his arrogant attacks on the president in particular and conservatives in general. This week he was chastised by Republican National Committee chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, for his skewering of Republicans in his new 140-page pamphlet being called a book, carrying a title that was previously used by Barry Goldwater in 1960. 

Jeff Flake, not known for having an original thought, will be facing voters in 2018.  The newspaper is worried enough about keeping this reckless open borders, amnesty supporter in place that the morning edition ignores all of the turmoil to strategically place him above-the-fold, with the appropriate headline, “A blaze’s aftermath.”  He is shown surveying the scene of the early summer Goodwin forest fire in the conservative voter base of Yavapai County. with an accompanying three-page article. The task is a major undertaking since the aptly named Flake holds the distinction of having the lowest approval rating of any senator in the 100-member body.

Jeff Flake: Reaping what he has sown sheds additional light on this deceptive RINO.


Navigating the language of Liberalese

August 6, 2017

Illegal alien mother teaches her kids an essential principle: Actions have consequences

The USA Today headline was an attention grabber: “After 17 years, Ohio mom of 4 faces deportation.” The hard copy edition was somewhat different: “Immigrant mom faces deportation after traffic violation.” 

Either version elicits the same response. What’s going on here? It turns out, the answer is “plenty.”

 Beatriz Morelos Casillas, 37, her husband and their children live in Smallville…er…Painesville, northeast of Cleveland. She was stopped on her way home from her factory job, we are told, and found to be driving without a license, a violation any of us would be charged with. .Her case had the added caveat of Casillas, a Mexican national, being in the United States illegally.

Her illegal status caused her to be taken into custody. The sympathetic portrayal claims she was “scheduled to be deported to the Texas border state of Tamaulipas — one of the most dangerous places in Mexico.”

To add to the drama, we are told her he kids, ages 4 to 12, are U.S. citizens and never have been out of the United States, according to her husband, Jose DeJesus. “She doesn’t have anybody in Mexico,” DeJesus said. “Everything she owns, everything she has is right here. She is here to live the American dream.”

Using Jose’s logic, sneaking into the United States, having a large family of anchor babies and wanting to live the American dream are reasons to overlook the laws of our sovereign nation, and give her a pass. Further into the tale of woe, we are told this is not her first rodeo.  She’s been deported previously

But such facts aren’t enough to keep an Hispanic advocacy group from coming to her aid. They refer to as “low hanging fruit,” for the U.S. government, since her repeat offender status allows her to be deported without a hearing.

How dare officials expedite a repeat offender? Why should there be any consequences for blatant disregard of our laws?

 Ask Rev. Steve Vellenga, pastor of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Painesville, who is working to rally community support for Casillas.  “She is not a criminal, not a violent person, and she is being sent back to a situation where her life will be at risk. This is the result of years of failing to reform immigration. We don’t see the immorality of what we are doing.”

Then ask the families of Kate Steinle and Grant Ronnebeck who join the infamous list of victims of multiple deported illegals. 

Fortunately we now have a president who is addressing the seriousness of the porous border, which provides passage for illicit drugs, criminals and a route for those from terror sponsoring nations who intend to wreak havoc on America.

In 2010, Seeing Red AZ posted “A Primer: How to decipher Republicese,”which includes a link to a 2008 post titled, “Lingo,” in which we expose the word manipulation of the liberal media.
