Dems confirmation sham calculated to disrupt Trump’s transition

January 12, 2017

Here’s some information to put all of the liberal Senate confirmation posturing of President-elect Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks in perspective. The U.S. Senate’s website has a lengthy but fascinating history of the process. Before checking the facts, take a guess at the number of Cabinet nominations ever rejected or withdrawn.

It turns out to be a rare event for the Senate to reject a Cabinet nomination. Only nine Cabinet appointees in all of U.S. history — appointed either by incoming U.S. Presidents or sitting Presidents attempting to fill vacancies in the middle of their terms — have ever been voted down by the Senate. 

Republicans are in the majority which should make confirmation even less of an issue, although Republicrats who are still reeling in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory revel in trying to disrupt the process.

Meanwhile, OneNewsNow reports the Obama and Hillary coat tail hangers are finding themselves jobless in D.C. The sure thing they so fervently believed in turned out to be an apparition. And that smooth transition Barack Obama promised Donald Trump’s administration? His lips were moving as he talked about emulating the graciousness of the 2008 George W Bush transition — a sure sign Obama was lying.


2017: The New Year we’ve been waiting for

December 31, 2016


happy_new_year

Seeing Red AZ sends sincere best wishes for a satisfying, productive, safe and healthy New Year to our valued readers. As Americans, we’ve endured eight long years of the most disastrous presidency imaginable.

From Barack Obama’s failed dealings with Iran, funding the America-hating dictatorship with $33 Billion and making it nuclear capable, while backstabbing Israel at the U.N., to overseeing the growth of ISIS foolishly calling it a “JV Team.” He gave us the lie-based Obamacare and steadfastly refuses to say the words “radical Islamic terrorism.” His commitment is to flooding the United States with illegal aliens and unable to be vetted Middle Eastern “refugees.” His efforts to constrain our Second Amendment rights, to his obsessive use of Executive Orders bypassing Congress and disseminating phony stats on job numbers in our still struggling economy to giving credibility to the Black Lives Matter thugs by inviting them to the White House. The list goes on.

Although Obama twice swore an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, he intentionally failed to do so. His stated intent was to fundamentally transform the most free, prosperous and generous nation on Earth.

In three weeks we have a fresh beginning with Republican President Donald Trump and newly elected Republican House and Senate majorities — an undisputable repudiation of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, his choice to implement his third term.

As we embark upon this New Year, there is no better time to renew our acquaintance with America’s founding documents: The Declaration of Independence, our U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

They have served us well. The least we can do is stay familiar with what they contain, hold our Republican congressional majorities accountable and ensure that our children know what blessings we have been given as a nation.


An enlightening review of the Electoral College & Update

You’ll be glad you read Hillary Clinton supporters need to quit whining about the Electoral College  by James E. Campbell, Distinguished Professor of Political Science at the University at Buffalo, SUNY.

Check out the facts about the U. S. Electoral College and the roles and responsibilities of electors.

This is the list of Arizona’s 2016 Republican electors.Update-tag

Leftist lawyer:Jeff Flake must reject Jeff Sessions as U.S. AG

December 12, 2016

In a “My Turn” article published Thursday in the state‘s largest newspaper, attorney and “community leader” Daniel R. Ortega, Jr. opines on why Sen. Jeff Flake should pull his support of Sen. Jeff Sessions for United States Attorney General.

Ortega repeats stale and long discredited tales intended solely to portray the conservative Alabama senator as a racist, which has become the go-to position of the radical left when attempting to sully an opponent. Disagreeing on issues such as amnesty for illegals, which Ortega slyly refers to as “immigration reform,” or questioning birthright citizenship which has been abused and misinterpreted  to the point it no longer resembles its original intent, doesn’t make Sen. Sessions or anyone else an “extremist.”

As a slam aimed at Jeff Flake — and this site has lobbed numerous ones in his direction — Ortega attempts to put Flake in the same Donald Trump supporting “basket of deplorables” that desperate and scandal plagued presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke of before having to fold her political tent. Either Ortega is unaware that Flake refused to support the Republican nominee or simply doesn’t care, if the facts don’t play into his narrative.

Jeff Flake voted to confirm the blatant anti-white racist, terrorist supporting and anti-Semitic Loretta Lynch,* when she was appointed U.S. Attorney General by Barack Obama. Flake was prepared to confirm Obama’s Democrat selectee Merrick Garland to replace conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. 

John McCain, worried about his reelection to another 6-year term while in his 80’s, cast a nay vote on Lynch. Previously, Sens. Kyl and McCain both voted to confirm Eric Holder as U.S. A.G. Holder began his tenure insulting Americans who put Obama in the Oval Office with his “Nation of Cowards” speech, presided over the bungled Fast and Furious sting operation that placed thousands of weapons in the hands of violent Mexican drug cartels — resulting in the death of Arizona border patrol agent Brian Terry. Holder sued Arizona over SB 1070. He was the first Attorney General to ever be held in contempt of Congress.

Sen. Jeff Sessions is an honorable man who deserves confirmation. Daniel Ortega is hurling buckshot hoping something sticks, though he hypocritically remained silent when the nominee was hate monger Loretta Lynch. He should be ignored.

Religion of Peace update — more terror Nov. 28, 2016

November 29, 2016

Abdul Razak Ali Artan, an Ohio State University freshman drove his vehicle into a crowd of pedestrians at the school, then jumped out and stabbed numerous people with a butcher knife, before police officer Alan Horujko, rightly hailed as a hero, shot and killed the attacker on Monday. At least 11 victims were transported to hospitals.

PJ Media reports that in a new publication, ISIS has called for random knife attacks in “alleys, forests, beaches, and quiet neighborhoods. ” Also on the hit-list are kids engaged in sports.

Artan, 18, was a Somali refugee. He was a legal U.S. permanent resident. The city of Columbus where the campus attack took place has a large Somali population, the second largest in the United States.

ABC News reveals Artan’s Facebook rant that was posted just minutes before his bloody rampage began.

Ohio Governor John Kasich released a statement that state residents’ “thoughts and prayers go out to the Ohio State community.” The “thoughts a prayers” message is heard so often under these circumstances, the words are beginning to ring hallow.  What  Kasich, and every other governor should do is join together 50 strong to implore the federal government to impose stiffer immigration standards and shut down the influx of unable-to-be-vetted “refugees.” The feds are not doing their job to fulfill these key words in the Preamble to the United States Constitution: “….. establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity….

Although the Somali Student Association has a prominent presence on campus, (check out the audience in the opening frames of video link) Artan, now being referred to as a terror suspect, was offended over what he regarded as too few prayer rooms to accommodate Muslim students.

On the White House website we are treated to Barack Obama’s condolences (in both English and Spanish) on the death of Cuba’s brutal Communist dictator Fidel Castro. He also lets us know he has pardoned the national turkey, There is not, however, a single word referencing this latest terrorist attack on American soil.  He didn’t even say that if he had a son, he would look like Abdul — as he did with Trayvon MartinHe’ll probably get around to it when he returns from the golf course.


Constitution Day: “Securing the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”

September 17, 2016

Founders even included the “pursuit of happiness”

Today, September 17, is Constitution Day.  How fortunate we Americans are to be able to celebrate the day 229 years ago when the Framers of the U.S. Constitution finished their work in Philadelphia — and sent the marvelous document they’d just completed out to the states for ratification.

Reflecting a vision of liberty through limited government that the Founders had first set forth 11 years earlier in the Declaration of Independence, “We the People,” through that compact, sought “to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the General Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”

Consider these inspiring words: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Take time to acquaint yourself with the detailed Charters of Freedom, with links to the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, the Bill of Rights and more.  Be sure to read about the Power of the Courts.

Then make a point to discuss the Constitution with your kids or grandchildren. The neighbor kids might appreciate hearing about our magnificent  founding documents. There’s a good chance none of them are learning this in today’s public schools, where liberal concepts of moral relativism and the disputed “science” of climate change get preferential treatment. 

Watch this brief campaign ad to it’s conclusion for a shocking reality check made clear by the legal counsel of the National Education Association.


September 11, 2001: Have we already forgotten?

September 11, 2016

Shameful actions of NFL players need to be dealt with — by vanishing fans

 Each year we commemorate the unspeakable horrors that shook America to her core on the clear autumn morning fifteen years ago today. Nearly 3,000 people were murdered by 19 Islamic terrorists in the U.S. on expired visas who commandeered two commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City. A third flew into the Pentagon. The death toll included 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. Along with our American citizens, people from 90 other countries were massacred in the attacks.

We also remember the orchestrated attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012 — resulting in the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Ty Woods, Sean Smith and Glen Doherty, which then-Secretary of State attempted to blame on a “spontaneous event” following a fabricated video defaming Muhammad.

In 2009, Army Major and Fort Hood psychiatrist, Dr. Nidal Hasan, who refers to himself as a “soldier of Allah” opened gunfire on the base killing 14 (including an unborn baby) and wounding more than 30 others. Though Hasan called out “Allahu Akbar!“ (Allah is greater) the Obama administration refused to acknowledge the terrorist aspect, foolishly referring to the murders as “workplace violence.”

The 2013 Boston Marathon bombings that maimed and killed innocents on a spring morning were perpetrated by Chechen immigrant brothers motivated by extremist Islamic beliefs.

In 2014 depraved decapitations of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff shook our sensibilities —- as was the intent via the grotesque videos posted by the jihadist executioners. These victims followed Daniel Pearl, a Wall Street Journal reporter savagely executed in the same manner in 2002. In the intervening years, other Americans have met that grisly fate. 

During 2015 the civilized world  witnessed mass beheadings and the burning alive of a caged Jordanian pilot. Some of the beheadings were carried out by children under the guidance of their own fathers, indoctrinating depravity in the name of Allah.

The perpetrators of these unspeakably evil acts are fanatical and murderous international thugs who literally follow the Quran’s 47:4 directive to “strike the necks” of unbelievers. Obviously, ISIS represents the worst of Islam, but few American Muslims raise their voices against either the butchery or the threats of devastation to our homeland and inflicting havoc on American cities.

Yet Americans have witnessed the Obama administration’s capitulation to the terror sponsoring regime of Iran by accelerating their nuclear capabilities. At the same time we are fed distorted intelligence reports giving a glossier version of U.S. progress against al Qaeda and the Islamic State — foolishly referred to as a “JV team” by Obama —  than is reflected by reality. Fortunately our Constitution ensures presidential term limits.

What there are no term limits on is ignorance. As Americans commemorate the victims of the September 11, 2001 depravity, overpaid NFL football players, with no real concept of how fortunate they are to be Americans or what the day represents, are using the somber occasion to stage protests by refusing to stand for our national anthem in a show of solidarity with the BLM movement that was founded in the lie of “Hands up, don’t shoot!”  The fallacious charge of racial inequality is also exemplified by the preponderance of black players with $ multimillion contacts, though there are no protests from the white minority players.

If the planned protests go foreword, patriotic Americans should stage their own demonstrations and boycott the teams. The old line money talks and BS walks applies in this instance. Constitutional lawyer, author and talk show host Mark Levin makes the case — covered by CNS News — that this is not a freedom of speech issue.
