Obama’s alarming abuse of power federalizes local police

July 10, 2016

Far left community organizer, still vilifying law enforcement and conservatives, now sits in the Oval Office and will use his last months in office to ensure the “fundamental transformation of America,” he promised

Using the Dallas police murders as justification for an unconstitutional expansion of the federal government, Barack Obama has announced his intent to federalize state and local law enforcement. 

Kurt Nimmo, writing for Alex Jones’ Info Wars, does a superb job of detailing the massive overreach that should send shock waves through every rational American citizen.  The report includes substantiating video.

If you read nothing else today, this article should be given priority status. Knowledge is power.


So you think you know Jeff Flake? Think again.

July 3, 2016

Don’t be fooled by his perpetual smirk and peroxide streaked hair, the narcissistic Jeff Flake is not your cool but amiable friend. A McCain ally and fellow ‘Gang of Eight’ amnesty colluder — except when elections roll around — his unsavory background is matched only by his disregard for his Arizona constituents in particular and America’s citizens in general.

Business Insider (BI) runs an article titled, Jeff Flake: Congress needs to ‘suck up’ and pass TPP ‘because you know it has to be done’ that’s well worth your time. Once again, Flake stands toe to toe with Barack Obama — this time on the monumental monstrosity known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Conservative Treehouse provided a link to the BI report while exposing Jeff Flake as a “Wall Street Operative and foot soldier for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.” Be sure to check out the photo of Flake and his fellow travelers.

As Jeff Flake thrusts a finger in the eye of American sovereignty in urging the passage of the Trans Pacific Partnership — another of Obama’s signature power grabs, Dick Morris relates the catastrophic consequences to America‘s Forum host J.D. Hayworth as he discusses Obama’s attempt to fast track TPP. The Trans Pacific Partnership provides irreversible authority, since treaties supersede statutes under the U.S. Constitution. Watch this vitally important interview beginning at 5:52.

In 2012 as perpetually repositioning Flake 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.

In the early 1990’s Jeff Flake worked as a lobbyist for Rossing Uranium — one of the world’s largest suppliers of the nuclear fuel. He was registered as a foreign agent representing the company which operates a mine in the African country of Namibia.  Flake earned approximately $7,000 per month opening doors in D.C. and promoting the firm with financial ties to Iran.

For a wealth of information about Jeff Flake, scroll through the “Categories” section on the right side of the SRAZ page and click on Jeff the Flake. He’s running for reelection next year, after winning by a slim 3 points and needs to be ousted. U.S. Senate terms are six years long. Be informed. 


Left has the answer to radical Islamic terrorism

June 15, 2016

In the aftermath of the latest carnage perpetrated by radicalized Muslims residing in the United States, count on liberals to come up with an answer: Repeal the Second Amendment.

The Founders got it wrong, don’cha know?

And Barack Obama still views identifying the radical Islamic terrorists by name as abhorrent. In the aftermath of the deadly terror attack on an Orlando nightclub, Obama and the Left continue to blame guns, not the radicalized Muslim gunman who called 911 and pledged his allegiance to ISIS minutes before opening fire.

David S. Cohen, a constitutional law professor at Drexel University‘s Thomas R. Kline School of Law, demeans the quaint reverence Americans have for the Constitution, saying the “Second Amendment is outdated, a threat to liberty and a suicide pact,” and “must be repealed.” 

This is the endless tape on which the volume is turned up to fever pitch whenever gun related violence takes place.

Cohen and a co-author Krysten Connon wrote a book titled “Living in the Crosshairs: The Untold Stories of Anti-Abortion Terrorism”—  proof that he is familiar with the word “terrorism.” but through a skewed prism relating to a pro-life stance. Cohen and Connon actually use the phrase “abortion care,” saying “providers” of such care are terrorized every day.  Get it?  They are referring to the abortionists, not the innocent human babies whose live are snuffed out for convenience by these “care” givers.

The Boston Marathon bombers used two pressure cookers to kill 3 and main 264 on a lovely Spring day.

Timothy McVeigh detonated a homemade fertilizer bomb in a rental truck at the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City killing 168 and injuring 684.

The terrorism that took nearly 3,000 lives on September 11. 2001 involved 19 committed Islamic extremists commandeering commercial airliners and flying them into the Twin Towers in New York City, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field, after heroic passengers fought to keep that plane away from the Capitol and White House. 

Using the skewed logic of the left, airliners, pressure cookers, rental trucks and fertilizer should be outlawed — keeping us all so much safer.

 


ACLU sues for illegals’ enhanced rights

April 13, 2016

In June 2015 Seeing Red AZ provided a headache inducing glimpse into California under the bizarre governorship of Jerry Brown in “Leftist lunacy:CA boosts illegals’ healthcare, wages….and even tackles global warming.”

Previously, in 2014, we posted, “Have you heard? The USA is “the other Mexico.” Those were the words of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto during a trip to California when he called on other states to “evolve” like California so the United States can be more like his home country. Standing alongside LA Mayor Eric Garcetti and Gov. Jerry Brown, Pena Nieto called for amnesty legislation and open borders while criticizing governors who have taken strong positions against illegal immigration. Gov. Brown told the crowd, including illegals, “You’re all welcome in California.” (brief video.)

Now we read that the ACLU Foundation of Southern California and the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project have filed a class action lawsuit claiming that the federal government unfairly sets unacceptably high bond amounts for illegal aliens in deportation proceedings because it fails to consider their inability to pay — resulting in longer incarceration stints for those who illegally invade the USA.

Named in the suit as plaintiffs are Cesar Matias, an asylum seeking Honduran national fighting deportation, and Xochitl Hernandez, an illegal alien from Mexico convicted of shoplifting.. Their ACLU lawyers allege high bail violates the Fifth and Eighth Amendment rights of the foreign nationals.

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) has a much more cogent take on the issue. Dan Cadman writes:

The posting of bond by detainees being charged with immigration offenses is authorized by Section 236 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1226. The purpose behind detention or the posting of bonds in immigration expulsion proceedings is exactly the same as it is in criminal proceedings: first, to ensure the presence of the individual at the trial or deportation hearing; and second, where applicable, to protect the public safety. That is precisely the reason this lawsuit shouldn’t go anywhere.

Imagine, for a moment, an individual arrested for murder who comes up for a bond hearing before the presiding judge or magistrate. Does anyone think that the defendant’s ability to post bond is an intelligent substitute for ensuring the public safety and his appearance for trial?

Read the complete and enlightening CIS commentary on “immigration bonds.” You’ll be glad you did.

Insidious ACLU-think is not just confined to California. The left-wing organization has offices in every state in the union, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico — an unincorporated U.S. territory currently $70 billion dollars in debt and seeking statehood.


“Court packing” double talk from the devious left

April 11, 2016

Linda Valdez, the far-left editorial writer at the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) is having anxiety attacks over what she repeatedly refers to as “packing the court.” A piece of legislation (HB 2537) winding its way through the chambers allows for the addition of two new Supreme Court justices on the Arizona high court, expanding the number from the current five to seven members. Republican Gov. Doug Ducey would make the appointments filling the two vacancies if the bill wins approval.

The court building and bench were constructed to accommodate the increased number of justices.

SRAZ currently takes no position on the plan. But it’s interesting to ponder if Valdez would be so indignant if the date were 1937 and it was the U.S. Supreme Court that was under consideration for expansion to as many as 15 justices.

That was the Machiavellian scheme of Democrat President Franklin Roosevelt who planned to expand the U.S. Supreme Court, allegedly to make it more efficient. Critics charged that Roosevelt was trying to “pack” the court and neutralize Supreme Court justices hostile to his radically liberal “New Deal” of overreaching  federal programs. During the previous two years, the high court struck down several key pieces of New Deal legislation on the grounds that the laws delegated an unconstitutional amount of authority to the executive branch and the federal government.

In an obsessive power grab, Roosevelt then attempted to mandate retirement at full pay for all members of the court over age 70. If a justice refused to retire, an “assistant” with full voting rights was to be appointed, ensuring Roosevelt a liberal majority. Most Republicans and many Democrats in Congress opposed the so-called “court-packing” plan — with the Senate striking it down by a vote of 70 to 22. Ultimately, Roosevelt nominated his first Supreme Court justice, and by 1942 all but two of the justices were his appointees.

Our bet is Linda Valdez would have been all too happy to see such liberal activism from the executive branch in reconfiguring the federal judiciary.

After Franklin Roosevelt was elected to an unprecedented fourth term, the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution was passed, officially limiting presidential tenure in office to two terms of four years each.

Valdez doubtless would have opposed that curtailment of the “president for life” measure, as long as the president was a like-minded liberal.

Smithsonian.com has a wealth of information on FDR and his audacious court packing scheme.


Mark Levin endorses Ted Cruz for President

March 10, 2016

“I want to make it very clear. The Republican Establishment is as diabolical as it’s ever been.” — Mark Levin

Conservative author and talk show host Mark Levin christened his newly launched LevinTV, with an announcement of his support for Ted Cruz, as the next president of the United States.

Levin, said that Cruz supports and fights for the “Constitution, the Republic, individual sovereignty, separation of powers, the Bill of Rights, family, faith, a secure border, and our national security.”

He stated that he knows Cruz isn’t perfect, but looking at the “whole picture” and looking at the entire career of Cruz it really is “a simple decision.”

Levin went on to say that his support of Cruz isn’t because of opposition to Donald TrumpJohn Kasich, or Marco Rubio. Instead, it is because Cruz understands “where this country has been and where it needs to go.”

Levin also said that if Cruz secures the GOP nomination, Cruz would win because facing Hillary he would know how to defeat her and know how to win.
