Pres. Trump praised for UN speech; AZ Republic ignores it

September 20, 2017

A classic study in contrasts: News vs. Blather

Though Pres. Trump won international acclaim for his strong United Nations speech Tuesday, you’d never know it from reading the far left, Hillary Clinton-endorsing Arizona Republic.  The fact that the president’s speech didn’t rate any coverage is telling.  When he excels on the World stage, the fish wrap passing itself off as a disseminator of news, is unable to deal with the accolades he receives. 

The AZ Republic opted instead to devote Page One to its “exclusive analysis” elevating its open borders vagueness and pretzel-like contortions to new heights as it concludes, “The border wall would disrupt lives and force seizures of thousands of properties at untold cost.”

Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton praised the speech, declaring it the “best speech of the Trump presidency.”

“The only way to deal with the quagmire that the U.N. represents on so many issues is to be direct. For Americans, plain speaking is still a virtue, and there is a lot of plain speaking in that speech,” Bolton said during an interview on “Happening Now.” 

“This was the best speech of the Trump presidency in my view. I think he was as clear and direct as it’s possible to be.”

An acknowledged expert on the United Nations, Bolton credited Trump’s tough talk against North Korea and Iran as highlights of his speech and said such comments were unprecedented at the U.N.

“I think it’s safe to say in the entire history of the United Nations, there has never been a more straightforward criticism of the behavior, the unacceptable behavior or member states,” Bolton said. “I think these are about as clear an indication as a president can make that he’s not going to live with the kinds of half measures and compromises that frankly for 25 years have marked American policy and led us to the present desperate situation.”

Republic reporter does double duty as Flake flack

September 19, 2017

Sinking in the polls, Jeff Flake is in real trouble

Dan Nowicki knows his days of slavishly covering John McCain are coming to an end. Now 81 and suffering from an aggressive form of brain cancer, McCain spends his waning days bonded to a very un-statesman-like role of Trump-basher-in-chief. Never having recovered from an embarrassing  drubbing during his 2008 presidential bid, he’s unable to reconcile the fact that a Washington outsider was victorious when he, the ultimate insider with 35 years in DC, was not. Using Barack Obama’s tactics of bashing America while in foreign countries, McCain shamefully attacked President Trump while attending an economic summit in Italy recently.

Junior Senator Jeff Flake has alienated the very Republicans he needs as he runs for his first senate reelection, with polling numbers in the toilet. He’s written a 140-page pamphlet masquerading as a book titled, “Conscience of a Conservative,” blatantly plagiarized from Barry Goldwater’s 1960 book. It was written two years before Flake was born, so the marginal Flake probably thinks no one will be the wiser. The sole purpose of Flake’s effort is to hammer President Donald Trump. Flake, who has never been accused of being an intellect, is too dense to comprehend that he is also painting the Republicans he needs to support him as fools, since they overwhelmingly put Trump over the top. Flake wouldn’t know about the massive turnouts for Trump’s valley appearances, since he refused to attend.

Major sources have taken note of Flake’s disastrously low  polling numbers. Townhall pulled no punches with,Uh Oh: Poll Has Sen. Jeff Flake Trailing GOP Primary Challenger By 14 Points.” The Hill wrote,” Poll: Flake’s approval rating in Arizona at 18 points.” Breitbart News headlined, “Exclusive — Jeff Flake Underwater: Poll Shows Kelli Ward Opening Up More-Than-25-Point-Lead In Senate Race With Year to Go.

But reporter Nowicki soldiers on singing the anthem from Jeff Flake‘s desperate playbook, ignoring the obvious as he attempts to position President Trump as imitating Flake‘s positions. It doesn’t work, Dan. The president recently described Flake as “Weak on crime & border!“ Even the newspaper you work for was so stunned by his previous campaign-related amnesty turnaround, that it blasted him as “a mere politician — no longer a statesman.”

Flake is exceedingly vulnerable. He was not swept into the senate by a groundswell in 2012 despite assists from John McCain and retiring Jon Kyl. He won his initial senate race by a mere 3 percentage points. That was before his loud refusals to either endorse or vote for the Republican presidential nominee, and his anti-Trump publication.

In a blunderous description reminiscent of failed presidential candidate Jeb Bush, who said illegals aliens come to America as an “act of love” — Jeff Flake now calls these same foreign invaders who disregard our sovereign border, “Americans by choice.” Jeb favored a “pathway to citizenship” to allow those here in violation of the law to “come out of the shadows.” At the time, Jeff Flake praised the absurd contention that breaking our laws was “an act of love.”

Dan Nowicki might think that’s practical political posturing. Most of the rest of us think it’s traitorous and unworthy of a candidate running to represent the people of Arizona in the 100 member senate.

 Dr. Kelli Ward is the actual conservative in Arizona’s U.S. Senate race.  Acquaint yourself with her principled positions on the issues. Send her a donation. Unlike Jeff Flake, she is not beholden to DC amnesty lobbyists. Arizona deserves better than Jeff Flake.


AZ Republic denied Arpaio perp walk, mug shot, goes apoplectic

August 26, 2017

Joe Arpaio graciously expresses appreciation of President Trump’s pardon

Even as the local newspaper anticipated the pardon President Donald Trump granted former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the collective rage of its editorialists, reporters and columnists is palpable. We’ve summed it up in our headline.  The mob of thugs posing as reporters and editors have been exposed by their own words, which you will not read here.

But who rates a stand alone quote on the front page? None other than Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS), a longtime and current committed amnesty-supporter righteously stating:

“The President has the authority to make this pardon, but in doing so….undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law as Mr. Arpaio has shown no remorse for his actions.” It was excerpted from this full statement released by ASS’s office.

Jeff Flake, who has already inflamed the Republican base with his incessant anti-Trump rhetoric, amnesty schemes, and recently released 140-page anti-conservative pamphlet masquerading as a book, is running for reelection and wasn’t as quick on the draw. His bottom-dragging polling numbers tell his story. Flake has been reprimanded by Republican National Committee chair Ronna Romney McDaniel.

Sean Hannity devoted a segment on his FOX nightly show to telling Flake that hehas lost his way Hannity recently endorsed Dr. Kelli Ward in the 2018 Arizona senate race.

So does SRAZ.


PRESIDENT TRUMP PARDONS SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO

August 25, 2017

Former Maricopa County Sheriff remains  a hero to many

President Donald Trump, fresh off a visit to Arizona on Tuesday evening, has announced that he has pardoned longtime Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.  The former sheriff who was reelected to six four-year terms was found guilty of a misdemeanor criminal contempt conviction in federal court. The charges, which many viewed as the culmination of a witch hunt, stemmed from his office’s enforcement of the law relating to illegal immigration.

Sheriff Arpaio had been denied the jury trial he and his lawyers requested and the verdict was handed down by Federal District Judge Susan Bolton who served as judge and jury in the case.

A statement issued by the White House Friday night said, “Today, President Donald J. Trump granted a Presidential pardon to Joe Arpaio, former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona.”

President Trump hinted that the  pardon was forthcoming at the Phoenix rally Tuesday night.

The President previously referred to Arpaio as a “a great American patriot” who has done “a lot in the fight against illegal immigration.”

At the Phoenix event the president asked the massive crowd of supporters: “Do the people in this room like Sheriff Joe?” His question was greeted by cheers and applause from the thousands of people who filled the Phoenix Convention Center to capacity. “You know what, I’ll make a prediction: I think he’s going to be just fine,” Trump said. “But I won’t do it tonight, because I don’t want to cause any controversy.”

The statement issued by the White House enumerated Sheriff Arpaio’s lifelong commitment to the law:

“Arpaio’s life and career, which began at the age of 18 when he enlisted in the military after the outbreak of the Korean War, exemplify selfless public service. After serving in the Army, Arpaio became a police officer in Washington, D.C. and Las Vegas, NV and later served as a Special Agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), formerly the Bureau of Narcotics. After 25 years of admirable service, Arpaio went on to lead the DEA’s branch in Arizona.

“In 1992, the problems facing his community pulled Arpaio out of retirement to return to law enforcement. He ran and won a campaign to become Sheriff of Maricopa County. Throughout his time as Sheriff, Arpaio continued his life’s work of protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is now eighty-five years old, and after more than fifty years of admirable service to our Nation, he is worthy candidate for a Presidential pardon.”

We couldn’t agree more!


Pres. Trump greeted by capacity crowd at Phx. Convention Center

August 23, 2017

Deceitful Arizona Republic distorts the facts to play into its leftist agenda, but wishing doesn’t make it so

It was an event that made waiting in the long lines in Phoenix’ blistering 107° August heat worthwhile.  President Donald Trump returned to the Phoenix Convention Center venue that jump started his presidential campaign and was as pointed in his comments as he was on his wildly successful road to the White House. Trump recalled, “ Phoenix was the scene of my first rally speech, and we knew something special was happening here. Believe me, Arizona,” he said, “I will never forget.”

Following a tour of a border patrol station in Yuma, where a wall has actually worked, he was met by a crowd of thousands in Phoenix. Dr. Ben Carson, a former Republican presidential opponent delivered opening remarks to the enthusiastic crowd, noting the Democrats don’t want to give the president any credit for his accomplishments. Rev. Franklin Graham delivered the opening prayer, evidencing the strong evangelical bond the president has forged. Dr. Alveda King, a former Democrat member of the Georgia legislature, now an ardent pro-life Republican, was on hand to support the president.  She is a niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Vice President Mike Pence won over the crowd as he introduced Donald Trump as “the man you helped elect as the 45th President of the United States.” Pence called the president “a man of his word and a man of action,” declaring “President Trump’s leadership inspires me every day.”

At one point in his address, the president shouted a question to the crowd, “Do the people in this room like Sheriff Joe?” His inquiry was met with cheers and applause. “So was Sheriff Joe convicted for doing his job?“ he asked. “He should have had a jury trial, but I’ll make a prediction, he’ll be just fine.” The president continued, “I won’t do it tonight, because I don’t want to cause any controversy, but Sheriff Joe can feel good.”

So will the rest of us who believe the career lawman was the object of a politicized witch hunt.

He also addressed Arizona’s two senators without naming either one, saying he was advised not to mention any names, so I won’t, “but we were one vote away from repealing and replacing Obamacare…” It escaped no one’s notice that he was referring to the thumbs down deciding vote of Arizona’s Senior Senator, now known by the acronym ASS on this site.

In discussing the “other senator” he recently called “toxic,” President Trump defined him as “weak on crime and the border,“ adding “no one knows who the hell he is.”

The American people voted for immigration control,” he said.  “That’s one reason I’m here.”

It was hot, the wait was long, but the rally attendees were flying high after eight years in the political wilderness, now hearing a president tell the truth about the border, the biased media — he identified as “attacking my supporters,” and his plans for America’s future. “It’s finally time to rebuild our country, ” he told the cheering crowd.

The Drudge Report news aggregator, which appears to have turned on the president was not above mischaracterizing the protesters across the street and reporting that “tear gas filled the streets.” Phoenix police made a point of saying there was no tear gas used, but smoke canisters were employed to disperse the far left, Nazi-inspired fringe group Antifa (contraction of Anti-Fascist). They are thugs, whose identifier is all black attire, and whose core belief is speech they do not agree with is ‘hate speech’ and has no First Amendment protections. They are criminals who destroy property, smashing windows and igniting fires, as part of their “protests.”

Imagine our disgust this morning to see the declaration-of-war sized headline in the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic declaring VIOLENCE ERUPTS and a staged looking photo of a man on his knees seemingly begging the long line of police for his life. The editorial is titled “Trump returns to Ariz with divisive message.”

If you weren’t able to attend, we provide this video. Watch the crowd. Listen to the truth.


Pres.Trump calls Jeff Flake “toxic,” supports Kelli Ward for US Senate

August 17, 2017

Tweeting  his support for Dr. Kelli Ward in the upcoming Arizona U.S. Senate race, and calling Jeff Flake “weak “and “toxic,”President Donald Trump has set the stage for his appearance in the Valley at the Phoenix Convention Center on Aug. 22.

Seeing Red AZ has repeatedly written about the need to replace the incompetent, amnesty-supporting Republicrat Jeff Flake — who refused to vote for GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. Dr. Kelli Ward is an accomplished conservative who supports the president.  We’ve devoted an entire category to Jeff the Flake.

Taking a page from President Trump’s book, Kelli Ward will make Arizona Proud Again. Be sure to get your free tickets for President Trump’s Phoenix rally.  Reserve  your tickets HERE.

 


Phx’s tyrannical Mayor Stanton sabotages 1st Amendment

August 17, 2017

Wants to silence President Trump, shut down Aug. 22 Phoenix Convention Center rally

Feeling energized after arbitrarily deciding that a Phoenix street name he found offensive needed to go, though the longtime residents who lived there steadfastly petitioned to retain it, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton is back, bat in hand.  This time he’s taking on the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the President of the United States. This big, bad lawyer should know better, but his ego has swelled to the point of enveloping his brain. 

Liberal Democrat Stanton has now announced that he’s “disappointed” that President Donald Trump plans to rally supporters in Phoenix next week. “’It is my hope that more sound judgment prevails and that he delays his visit,’ Stanton said. In fact, Stanton ludicrously links the visit and request for the president to “delay his plans” to visit Phoenix “as the nation is still healing from the tragic events in Charlottesville.”

Leaving no room for doubt as to his skewed ideology Stanton adds that if Trump is coming to Phoenix to announce a pardon for former Maricopa County sheriff Arpaio — now 85 years old and potentially facing a 6-month sentence for carrying out his duties — “then it will be clear that his true intent is to enflame emotions and further divide the nation,” ridiculously claiming  a “pardon would amount to an endorsement of racism.”  A federal judge ruled that Arpaio’s officers had racially profiled Hispanics, a charge Arpaio denied.

That’s the mantra of liberals, who have taken to heart Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s tactic ofnever allowing a serious crisis to go to waste.  He made the statement as chief of staff for Barack Obama.

Radical leftist CD 3 U.S. RepRaul Grijalva (read the linked Jerry Kammer exposé revealing his Saul Alinsky roots) will be leading a band of leftist protesters outside the Phoenix Convention Center. Grijalva once called for a boycott of Arizona, a job killer for his own constituents, many of whom work in the service industries.

Stanton is obviously laying the groundwork for grander ventures, having filed for the position of Secretary of State, often the gateway to the Arizona Governor‘s Office. At the beginning of the 2017-2018 reporting period, he was already sitting atop over a $ half million — $510,150.39, to be exact — though no current donors are listed. Equality Arizona, a local LGBTQ advocacy group, was the recipient of $1,000 for an event table.  Don’t be surprised if slippery Stanton ditches the SOS pursuit for an office with more heft.  He’s obviously covered all contingencies by naming his campaign “Stanton for Arizona.”

For a memory refresher, wander back to 2011 to see who Greg Stanton actually is.
