Left vow riots over filling SCOTUS vacancy; Marxist coup focused on 2020 election

September 20, 2020

The political left openly supports the rampaging mobs of radicals waging war on American cities, their citizens and our dedicated men and women who serve in law enforcement.

Now these contemptible thugs are not limiting their violence to inflicting serious bodily harm, looting, taking over city blocks, destroying national monuments and committing arson — carrying out more than $1 billion in property damage in the name of “social justice.” Breitbart reports they are also issuing warnings of rampant national destruction if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell moves forward with the orderly process to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court following the Friday death of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at age 87.

Living in a nation that celebrates liberty with a Constitution that enshrines our rights means nothing to these undereducated thugs, who have scant knowledge of America’s miraculous founding.

Iranian-born Reza Aslan, identified as an author, former CNN host and a professor, is also a virulent Trump-hater, using vulgarities in his twitter descriptions of the president. Aslan converted from Islam to evangelical Christianity and then back again to being a Muslim. His threatening screeds are also profanity-laced and aimed at Americans, who he warns will suffer if Ginsburg is replaced by President Trump.

If this promise of grand scale national chaos regarding the president’s right to fill a Supreme Court vacancy isn’t enough, the anarchists and their partners in the Democrat party are pushing an unrestrained assault against the American election system, as Gateway Pundit underscores in this morning’s post,MUST SEE VIDEO: Catherine Engelbrecht and the Prestigious TRUE THE VOTE Organization Release Powerful Warning on the Marxist Coup in 2020.”

None of us can be too busy not to carve out time to view these three crucial links. America’s future and those of our families depends on us being fully informed as the emboldened radical left is intent on obliterating our way of life.


Justice Ginsburg dead at 87: Misjudged reality

September 19, 2020

With this September 18, 2020 press release, the U.S. Supreme announced the death of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at age 87. She was appointed to the high court by President Clinton in 1993 and was obviously hoping scandal-plagued Democrat Hillary Clinton would appoint her successor after the 2016 presidential election. However, the people of the United States, had the last word, (2-minute video) overwhelmingly electing Donald Trump and thwarting Ginsburg’s plans.

As a result, the former ACLU General Counsel and zealous abortion advocate hung on, working through serious illnesses and surgeries, hoping to outlast President Trump, who she clearly did not want to replace her with a conservative justice.

In 2018 Ginsburg stated her intention to stay on the court for five more years, hoping to surpass what she believed to be President Trump’s time in office. She pointed to the example of Justice John Paul Stevens, who retired at 90.

“I am sure she wants to stay on the court until the end of the Trump presidency if she can,” said Erwin Chemerinsky, the dean of the law school at the University of California, Berkeley, and a liberal who called on Ginsburg to retire in 2014, when Barack Obama was president and Democrats controlled the Senate.

Ginsburg’s glib explanation for falling asleep during Barack Obama’s 2015 State of the Union speech was that she’d had too much to drink before attending andwas not 100% sober.” (video admission.) The political double standard was evidenced by newscasters who found that comment to be humorous.  Does anyone believe their reaction would have been the same if those words were uttered by a 90-year-old Republican justice? CNN slickly dubbed the outrageous episode “Power napping.”

Juxtaposed against the vicious, deceitful personal assault then-nominee and now Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his family endured, far leftist Ginsburg had a cakewalk. The August 3, 1993 roll call confirmation vote on her nomination was 96-3, with one not voting. Sen. John McCain, who claimed to be pro-life, voted in concert with his Arizona seat-mate, Democrat Dennis DeConcini.

As we fast forward to the announcement of her death, Justice Ginsburg big gamble didn‘t pay off. President Trump sits in the White House. He will have the opportunity to appoint a third justice to the Supreme Court.

Although death often facilitates a magical transformation, Seeing Red AZ deals in realities and brings our readers this instructive February 2012 post and accompanying video, titled,US Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg: Unfit to serve,” in which she disparages the U.S. Constitution.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was not an icon. She was an iconoclast.


Is it possible to break a moral compass that doesn’t exist?

September 17, 2020

When columnists have been featured on this site, they are reserved for weekend reading. Dennis Prager’s recent column,The Left’s Moral Compass Isn’t Broken,” one of the most instructive you’ll read, deserves prominence.

We are facing the most important election of our lifetimes — Nov. 3, 2020 —  just 47 days from today. The concept of honesty has vanished from the lexicon of the left. Democrats have turned fiction into fact and truth into a vague memory. They are willing to ignore the destruction of cities and spiraling criminality, including the maiming and deaths of law enforcement officers, whose departments they now want to defund and dismantle.

The Democrat presidential candidate, Joe Biden, a nearly 50-year D.C. political insider, is failing and unable to speak coherently without a teleprompter, and even then, frequently blunders. He refers to the ticket on which he and his running mate, Kamala Harris — selected solely based on her race and gender — as the “Harris-Biden ticket,” forgetting he is the one attempting to challenge President Donald Trump, who has kept his promises to the American people.

We grew up thinking there were two major political parties…Republicans and Democrats. That is no longer the case. Today’s Democrats are yesterday’s Socialists who we fought WWII to eradicate. Those Democrats of the Depression and WWII years, who reelected Franklin Delano Roosevelt to four consecutive terms (1933-1945) were ultimately constrained in 1947 by the Twenty-Second Amendment (ratified in 1951), which prohibited more than two four-year terms in office. This historical footnote is crucial in remembering Democrats have a history of being predisposed to misappropriate power.

There is an important biblical message for Trump supporting activists to take to heart as we head into the waning days of this election cycle, “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.”


Pres. Trump expands list of possible SCOTUS picks

September 10, 2020

Yet another reason to support the reelection of President Donald Trump

Yesterday, Sept. 9, 2020, President Trump released this expanded list of those he is considering to fill any vacancies that may occur on the U.S. Supreme Court.  Each of those under consideration have exemplary resumes and graduated their respective law schools with high honors.

Among the potential nominees is Arizonan Bridget Bade, appointed by the president to the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in 2019.

Also under consideration are Sens. Ted Cruz and Tom Cotton, both of whom have first-rate legal backgrounds in addition to being magna cum laude Harvard graduates.

As of September 9, 2020, the United States Senate has confirmed 205 Article III judges nominated by President Trump, including two associate justices of the Supreme Court of the United States, 53 judges for the United States courts of appeals, 148 judges for the United States district courts, and two judges for the United States Court of International Trade. There are currently 45 nominations to Article III courts awaiting Senate action, including 44 for the district courts and one for the Court of International Trade. There are currently 68 vacancies on the U.S. district courts and two vacancies on the New York based U.S. Court of International Trade. Senate Democrats have held up confirmations in advance of the November 3, 2020 election.

The Heritage Foundation’s Judicial Appointment Tracker compares each president’s appointees as of September 9 of each president’s fourth year. The compelling graph goes back to Pres. Ronald Reagan.

Early in his presidency Pres. Trump nominated Justices Neil Gorsuch (2017) and Brett Kavanaugh (2018). Though both were eventually confirmed, Justice Kavanaugh was subjected to a vicious Democrat-led effort to defame him.

Associate Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Bill Clinton nominee is 87-years-old and in ill health as evidenced by the numerous medical alerts from the U.S. Supreme Court. They rival a circus acrobat’s contortions trying to conceal the severity of her many hospitalizations and surgeries.

Earlier this year SRAZ wrote,Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s egocentric big gamble,”which includes this 2012 video link of the radical leftist former ACLU lawyer acknowledging she’s not a fan of the U.S. Constitution.


SCOTUS unanimously rules presidential electors can’t go rogue

July 7, 2020

The U.S. Supreme Court in a unanimous 9-0 decision, supporting the Constitution, ruled Monday that states can pass laws that punish so-called “faithless electors” who refuse to cast an official ballot for the winner of that state’s popular vote. Read the decision in Chiafalo et al  v. Washington.

Members of the Electoral College are selected on a state-by-state basis, and according to the U.S. Constitution, are required to cast their official state ballots for whichever presidential candidate wins the plurality of their state’s popular vote.

Without the Electoral College, the few most populous states would elect the president. The Electoral College system alleviates the imbalance of the popular vote based on where people live, assigning a number of electors to each state that corresponds with the congressional delegation from each state and mandates that the electors of that state vote the way the people of that state voted in the election. Arizona, with 9 congressional districts and the requisite two senators, is allotted 11 electors.

The U.S. House of Representatives provides these facts on the Electoral College.

In 2016,10 of the 538 presidential electors went rogue, attempting to vote for someone other than their pledged candidate. The electors, who received $1,000 fines for dereliction of duty, eventually brought the suit that reached the Supreme Court.

Ultimately, Donald Trump won the election with 304 electoral votes to 227 for Hillary Clinton.


Alarming parallels between ancient Rome and USA 2020

July 5, 2020

Today we direct our readers to a recent column by Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz titled,We can no longer celebrate our independence. We must fight for it again.”

Its truths are difficult to absorb, but we can not — must not — turn away from the hard facts that constitute our new reality.

There’s plenty of blame to go around. Parental leniency, a result of being pals rather than doing the difficult job of parenting, shares the top of the list with the hard left overtaking America’s educational system,* instituting the mod, feeling-sparing concept of rewarding participation over achievement. This irrationality sets students up for failure in the adult workplace that requires competition and successful outcomes.

Our Democracy was won, not gifted to us. It takes dedication to keep it. Our youth need to be taught history. Those with knowledge build upon the past, rather than disrespectfully destroying it.

Too many Americans are the Romans of old, watching their society crumble before their eyes but preferring to be lulled into mindlessness by the distractions of “bread and circuses.” The Roman citizens lost their will to defend what they had built. Their previously held concepts of civic duty waned and they became ripe for takeover as ignorance and complacency took hold.

 This was written by Juvenal a highly regarded Roman historical satirist around 100 C.E. as he expressed his contempt for his countrymen:

“Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the people have abdicated our duties; for the people who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions — everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses.”

Devising a means of gaining and retaining power, the Roman elite pragmatically provided cheap food and free wheat to the citizens as well as gladiators fighting to the death or circuses as a placating diversion.

As mentally declining Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden said when attempting and failing to recite the 35-words of the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence,You know the thing.”

The “thing,” as rational Americans who value our country know, is the imperative that President Donald Trump be reelected.

Dems fail in D.C. statehood power grab

June 27, 2020

It was bound to happen. On the rising tide of racial divide following the martyrdom of George Floyd, a career criminal who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer responding to a call of Floyd attempting to pay for merchandise with a counterfeit twenty dollar bill. The death was unnecessary and the former officer is in jail, charged with second-degree felony murder. Three other officers who witnessed the knee to Floyd’s neck are unreasonably facing third-degree murder charges. One was newly hired.

Floyd had been incarcerated multiple times on robbery and narcotics sale convictions. His autopsy report revealed he tested positive for COVID-19 and had numerous drugs including cocaine, fentanyl, cannabis, morphine and oxycotin in his system. Though far from a sterling character, his death was the impetus for riots, arson and looting across the country. It has expanded into an excuse for calls to defund police departments nationwide and destroy historic monuments in what amounts to a cultural revolution by leftists lacking in knowledge of American history as they elevate Floyd to hero status.

The most recent affront is being perpetrated by congressional Democrats who are now pushing for statehood for Washington, D.C. There is a method to their madness. If such a vote were to pass the senate, we would have a minority majority state, where black voters, mostly democrats would alter the dynamics of the U.S. House and Senate.

In a patently partisan 232-180 vote, the U.S. House on Friday approved legislation granting statehood to Washington, D.C. A single Democrat, Collin Peterson (MN) voted against H.R. 51. There is no chance of passage through the Republican controlled Senate, which adheres to the fact that such a move is unconstitutional, since the nation’s founders established the city as a neutral zone outside the influence of state politics for co-equal sovereign states to come together to transact the nation’s business.

The bill violates the 23rd Amendment, which grants D.C. residents the right to vote in presidential elections. That is of no consequence to the Democrat magicians. Their presto-chango legislation included a swift vote to repeal the 23rd Amendment.


AZ Republic: Pride goeth before a fall, as it begs for “donations”

June 22, 2020

Move to all digital publication is imminent

As we’ve frequently pointed out, the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic newspaper has fallen on hard times. The reality was substantiated by The Phoenix Business Journal in this November 2019 report titled,Analysis: Arizona Republic’s circulation decline among steepest for Gannett papers.”

The deterioration has grown more acute since then. The anorexic pretense posing as a newspaper is staffed by ASU Cronkite J School interns who have replaced longtime reporters. Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist, Steve Benson, who accommodatingly switched gears from conservative to leftist, was abruptly kicked to the curb as unaffordable. The remaining skeletal staff following mass firings, furloughs and staring down a nonexistent future voted to unionize. The newspaper’s dire circumstances were predicted in AZ Republic: homeless vagrant on borrowed time.

Blithely undisturbed by the daily’s daily flubs, exemplified by this monumental list of Corrections and Clarifications, is the inanely grinning executive editor Greg Burton — except when comparing his remaining staff tocrackpots and criminals.” He puts on a happy face to thank the dwindling number of readers overpaying for being fed leftist slop as he prizes newsroom diversity above factual reporting while promising more of the same to subscribers. Sunday’s edition carries a preposterous editorial clamoring for gifting reparation to blacks for slavery, which was abolished 155 years ago in 1865 through the adoption of the Thirteenth Amendment.

In a full page ad, the same edition of the failing newspaper deviously reveals the latest incarnation of the desperate publication which is unable to afford the myriad costs associated with producing and delivering hard copies. It’s gearing up to go all digital, which will not sit well with its remaining mostly senior citizen subscribers who prefer the delivered paper on the driveway. The newspaper honchos admitted irate readers dropped their subscriptions after its 2016 Hillary endorsement, leading it to abandon its roundly ignored endorsement policy altogether. The effects of going all digital will make that calamity look like a cakewalk.

Here’s its pathetic pitch:

Everything You Love About the Paper And More.

Enjoy reading the Arizona Republic print edition online. With the e-Edition, you get access to a digital edition of our paper and extra features.

Available 24/7. Give your eyes a break and let the e-Edition read the articles to you.

Then, in what can only be described as a mega-dose of chutzpah, an accompanying page sporting 4-inch high capital letters and bankrolled by Google, blasts “SUPPORT LOCAL NEWS,” actually pleading for folks to subscribe, advertise and…donate.  Conveniently blaming the decline in revenue on the Corona-19 virus, the newspaper, through its left-wing mouthpiece admits it’s losing money and now considers itself a charity.  Don’t be conned. 

 


Lawlessness takes root in Dem run cities & Update

June 12, 2020

America’s education establishment, controlled by Leftists, bears responsibility      

As Antifa political thugs take over American cities rioting, looting and now toppling historic monuments, it’s important to recognize that many ot the anarchists who align with the group identify as communists and socialists. Yet their goal far supersedes advancing a political agenda. Instead, they are committed to obliterating those they consider fascists, — mainstream American citizens, often conservative Republicans.

Under-educated in today‘s far left public schools, they abhor law enforcement, our legal system and public institutions, and justify using violence to prevent law abiding Americans from exercising such constitutionally enshrined First Amendment rights as free speech or public assembly. As far back as 2016, the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities asdomestic terrorist violence.”

Many are young, members of Generation Z, lacking memory of events we considered transformative, such as September 11, 2001 and not having it, or basic American history included in school curriculum. In seizing six city blocks of Seattle, (Hannity video) including the now abandoned police department, which they have renamed CHAZ* (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone) the mob is now in control. 

Their List of Demands is preposterous, illustrating their abysmal lack of understanding the fundamentals of what has made America a beacon of hope since the Declaration of Independence was ratified on July 4, 1776.

Though many Americans are riveted, watching the raw hubris exemplified by aggression and hostility to what has made America great, focus should be directed to the fundamental causes.  Teachers unions have been donors to the radical left for decades and the proliferation of fatherless homes have corresponded to the increase in crime.

To more fully comprehend the depth of the left’s tentacles into the educational demise, read the enlightening,Witness to Public Schools Brainwashing,” posted on American Greatness. It’s an outstanding insight.

*As of June 14, 2020, the lawless area has been renamed Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) by the mobsters who have not only not been forcibly removed from the 6-block area, but the city of Seattle has caved in to their outrageous demands providing no inducement to leave. Instead of removing these lawless squatters, the radical leftist city leaders, whose priorities are skewed, have brought in portable toilets and are supplying them with free food, as businesses in the multi-block area remain shuttered and their owners suffer.


Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s egocentric big gamble

May 6, 2020

Americans deserve better than seriously ill 87-year-old

Years ago there was a televised game show known as ‘Beat the Clock.’ The premise involved contestants trying to complete challenges to win prizes before the clicking clock ran out of time. Justice Ginsburg must have been a fan.

According to this terse May 5, 2020 press release from the Supreme Court of the United States, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is back in the hospital.  What appears to be a serious condition, especially at age 87, is made to sound like a walk in the park.  She’ll be teleconferencing oral arguments from her hospital bed, we are told. Ginsburg earlier survived several bouts of colon and pancreatic cancer.

Two previous press releases attest to her deteriorating health, this one dated August 23, 2019. After three months of silence the next “update” was November 23, 2019. Promised further updates from PIO Kathleen Arberg were never posted. Apparently the American people are looked upon as mushrooms, by the SCOTUS PR Department. Our role is to be kept in the dark and fed manure.

In 2018 Ginsburg stated her intention to stay on the court for five more years, hoping to surpass what she believes to be President Trump’s time in office. She pointed to the example of Justice John Paul Stevens, who retired at 90.

“I am sure she wants to stay on the court until the end of the Trump presidency if she can,” said Erwin Chemerinsky, the dean of the law school at the University of California, Berkeley, and a liberal who called on Ginsburg to retire in 2014, when Barack Obama was president and Democrats controlled the Senate.

The undercurrents are many. Ginsburg, a radical leftist former ACLU lawyer, was appointed to the high court by Bill Clinton. Her dream, that never materialized, was for her successor to be appointed by Hillary Clinton, another blunderous miscalculation since Donald Trump clobbered the scandal-plagued Democrat standard bearer. 

Meanwhile, the ancient extremist, who has been videotaped saying she’s not a fan of the U.S. Constitution, and has fallen asleep when she’s expected to be alert, continues to hang on by a tenuous thread, hoping demented Biden will name her replacement.

Her glib reason for falling asleep during Barack Obama’s 2015 State of the Union speech was that she’d had too much to drink before attending andwas not 100% sober.” (video admission.) The political double standard was evidenced by newscasters who found that comment to be humorous.  Does anyone believe their reaction would have been the same if those words were uttered by a 90-year-old Republican justice? CNN slickly dubbed the outrageous episode “Power napping.”
