The death of “The City by the Bay”

San Francisco upscale mall shoppers greeted with “gifts” in elevators

San Francisco, previously a destination vacation spot for Arizonans longing for urbane elegance, high-end shopping, spectacular restaurants and live theater performances, is no more. 

It has fallen prey to its far-left politics, with democrats Gov. Gavin Newsom and Mayor London Breed running governments that would be the envy of Karl Marx. Newsom, who has spent California into bankruptcy, refers to his wife, Jennifer, mother of 4 of his children, as “First Partner” rather than First Lady so as not to offend the state’s large homosexual community. Mayor Breed has announced her latest scheme, launching what she terms, Housing for All, a strategy to fundamentally change how San Francisco approves and builds housing. Among her priorities is implementing what she calls “Mayor’s Roadmap to Downtown San Francisco’s future,” seemingly unaware that San Francisco was previously known for its vibrant downtown. Kuleto’s, the unparalleled Italian Restaurant in the Villa Florence Hotel, closed after thirty years as has the hotel, which was plagued by homeless addicts blocking the doorways amid hypodermic needles and piles of excrement on the sidewalk. 

The San Francisco Standard headlines its report, “Downtown San Francisco: Human Waste Increasingly Found in Westfield Mall Elevators, Staff Say.”

Desperate to distinguish herself, Breed dedicates a page to informing that “she is first African-American woman mayor in San Francisco’s history.”  She is not the first female nor is she the first black, but those traits, over which she has no control, are paramount to her.


Durham report: Steele dossier, Team McHillary all conspired against Pres. Trump

May 16, 2023

It’s a reasonable expectation that few have read the 316-page Durham Report, though the alphabet networks have been diligently verifying its claims. 

Donald Trump was never expected to win the 2016 presidential election, which was being gifted to Hillary Clinton, despite her scams, treachery and deceit. The only problem with that scheme was that American voters spoke loud and clear, much to the shock (less than 2-minute video) of the election night newscasters.

The New York Post headlines its lead report, “Durham proves that Hillary and the FBI tried to rig the 2016 election.” It’s worth your time.

And the scandalous Steele dossier?

There was an Arizona connection. In a book released while he was being treated for his final illness, John McCain, who repeatedly failed at attaining the presidency, which Donald Trump achieved on his initial political foray, alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election, leading to the appointment of special counsel, Robert Mueller, who found no collusion.

President Trump repeatedly dismissed the rumors calling them a “witch hunt” and a “hoax.” Jealous John McCain admitted hand carrying the dossier to then-FBI Director James Comey. “I did it and I would do it again,” McCain boasted, “Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell.” McCain blamed his vicious hatefulness on “duty,” claiming he did “what duty demanded I do.”

The Clinton campaign helped bankroll the notorious Steele dossier, which made unsubstantiated accusations against Trump. Despite the malicious collusion against him, Donald Trump got the last laugh, winning the presidency and providing Americans the best economy in memory, building a southern border wall while putting Americans first. Biden, who prioritized tearing down the wall, is currently letting 10,000 illegal aliens into the United States each month. ABC News headlines, “US will let in at least 100,000 Latin Americans to reunite with families,” teaching them that American laws are meant to be broken.

Biden’s border chaos curtailed by Trump appointed federal judge

May 15, 2023

Fox News headlines its recent report, “Federal judge blocks Biden admin from releasing migrants without court dates as Title 42 expires.”

Judge T. Kent Wetherell II, nominated to the federal bench by President Donald Trump, was confirmed by this 78-15-7 senate roll call vote on July 10, 2013. Arizona’s senators at the time were Republican Martha McSally and democrat Kyrsten Sinema, who both voted for Judge Wetherell’s confirmation. Sinema reregistered as an Independent Jan 3, 2019.

Reminder: Seeing Red AZ does not use the word “migrants” when describing illegal aliens, unless used in a quote.

When universities call themselves “Liberal Arts,” they mean it

May 12, 2023

Infanticide masquerading as abortions available to “All/Any Students”

A liberal arts university in Connecticut says it will now cover the costs of “any student” who decides to get an abortion or a Plan B contraceptive, regardless of their insurance status.

Connecticut’s Wesleyan University recently announced, following a pressure campaign from the university’s Young Democratic Socialists of America chapter, the school would now pay for presumably female students to get an abortion or emergency (after conception) contraceptives. The school has also committed to picking up the transportation costs incurred by “such students.”

The decision comes after the Young Democratic Socialists of America chapter at Wesleyan collected over 700 signatures on a petition that urged the school to ensure “all students are able to overcome financial burdens to, and lack of transportation for, abortion procedures.”

The blue state of Connecticut has no restrictions on abortions and encourages those who choose to abort a living, 6-month fully formed, and healthy baby to “Shout your abortion!”

“Politicians should not get between a person and their doctor. As long as I am governor, reproductive rights will be protected in Connecticut, and I will do everything in my power to block laws from being passed that restrict those rights.”

– Governor Ned Lamont

Insults Americans as he claims “We have seen the effectiveness of our approach” at the southern border, as thousands of illegal aliens slither through every day creating a massive and costly national crisis

H/T RNC Research


This morning, May 11, 2023 NBC News reports: “After more than 11,000 migrants were caught crossing the southern border on Tuesday, the Biden administration is now preparing a memo that will direct Customs and Border Protection to begin releasing migrants into the United States without court dates or the ability to track them, according to three sources familiar with the plans.”

This is a direct quote. Seeing Red AZ does not use the word “migrants” to describe illegal alien invaders.

Biden’s DOE crackdown on dishwashers follows gas stoves halts

Uninvited Biden invades our kitchens

Claiming it will save American households money, this is the Department of Energy’s statement on the latest restrictions intended to hobble American’s personal purchasing decisions. When the word “stakeholders” is hauled out, beware. We are also told that the dubious “goal is to align U.S electric motor energy efficiency standards with expected European standards.”

The far-left DOE’s Jennifer Granholm, who was confirmed with a less than an enthusiastic senate vote of 64-35-1,  recently received blowback from critics after she testified before the Senate in support of a plan to fully establish an all-electric vehicle fleet in the U.S. military by the 2030s, leading many observers to wonder if the Biden administration believes politics trumps national security. This is the statement by Christine Wormuth, Secretary of the Army, who claims “climate change threatens America’s security.”

Berkeley educated, DOE secretary Jennifer Granholm announced she expects “the new standards for electric motors, coming into effect in 2027, to save consumers up to $8.8 billion in utility bills over the ensuing 30 years of shipments and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 91.7 million metric tons — an amount roughly equivalent to the combined annual emissions of 20 million gasoline cars.”

Many of us will not be here to verify their claims, and there are no supporting facts to bolster them, but democrat’s slippery talk is cheap.

AZ Supervisor Bill Gates blames Trump supporters for his PTSD

May 9, 2023

Are you what has derogatorily been referred to as “an election denier?” If so, according to this report in the Daily Beast, you are responsible for driving Maricopa County Board of Supervisor’s District 3 member Bill Gates to therapy.


Republicrat Gates has revealed that he was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after what he terms were “relentless threats and harassment from election deniers” — using leftist code for Trump supporters.

The complete interview appeared in the left-leaning, subscription only, Washington Post, which has never endorsed a Republican presidential candidate. The WaPo was established in 1877 as a four-page organ of the democrat party and has never veered far from its roots.

Supervisor Gates, too old for whining at age 51, claims he has been targeted by a Trump-obsessed fringe that drove him to the brink, causing his family to retreat to a vacation spot. He further alleged he became so filled with anger and sadness that his wife made him go into therapy, and now has developed coping mechanisms for dealing with conspiracy theorists.

Gates, who has a law degree but never enters a courtroom, works as Director of Distribution for Ping Golf. He ought to take his new “coping mechanisms,” a cup of hot cocoa and his tinker toys and give up trying to portray himself as a grown-up.

Declining ratings for Oscars have an underlying cause

May 8, 2023

The Deseret News’ Hanna Seariac has done a masterful job of exposing the declining viewership of the previously not-to-be-missed Oscars. Her report is titled, “Are the Oscars and other awards shows increasingly just for the elites?

Left-wing political views espoused by Hollywood celebs have done nothing to engender a wider audience base. So caught up with their status, they appear to forget that the audience is made up of people who are feeling the brunt of Bidenflation and struggling to stay afloat, making ongoing payments, keeping their growing kids dressed, paying medical bills, putting meals on the table and gas in the car. Movies provided a rare diversion.

This Wikipedia list provides amounts paid to highest-grossing actors, cautioning that the “factual accuracy is disputed.”

Hanna Seariac’s report provides an in-depth reflection on the out-of-touch movie industry. We highly recommend you read her review. TCM is free and plays classics.
