Polling shows John McCain carrying increasingly negative numbers as well as the wrath of a large swathe of his home state Republicans —– evidenced by multiple state and county censures. As The Hill speculates about the senior senator’s political future, major flaws in the article “McCain gets ready for the race of his life,” are revealed in the sourcing and less than accurate skew.
Reading the article, one outside of Arizona would likely come away thinking McCain was invincible and that his three-plus decades in DC, have imbued him with brilliance in matters of national security and accumulated wisdom simply by virtue of staring octogenarian status in the eye.
The facts belie such notions. His left-of-center alliances and preference for illegal invaders over Arizona’s citizens have earned him the ire of grassroots Republicans .
Yet The Hill anoints convicted felon Wes Harris as the ‘grassroots conservative expert’ to speak for all of Arizona. Although Harris’ observation of McCain’s unpopularity is correct, his assertion that McCain won reelection in 2010 because his conservative challenger —- former Congressman J.D. Hayworth —- was a flawed candidate laden with too much “baggage,” has no basis in reality.
Arrogant and divisive Wes Harris has alienated many conservatives. Few would say he speaks for them.
In fact, the popular Hayworth was formidable. After a year-end Rasmussen Reports survey showed McCain in a virtual dead heat with the still-undeclared Hayworth, McOperatives did the expected, launching into counterattack mode by running a disreputable push poll to inflate McCain’s numbers. Hayworth, who carried strong conservative support, was not hobbled by baggage, but rather by being outspent roughly 10 to 1.
The man with baggage galore is John McCain. Last January at the annual mandatory meeting of the Maricopa County Republican Committee, elected precinct committeemen voted to censure McCain. The measure passed overwhelmingly — 1,150 in support with only 351 opposed. Read the complete Resolution to Censure John McCain, including a list of grievances
Later the same month, McCain was censured again, this time by elected state committeemen at their statutory meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party.
The Hill article does include one telling segment worthy of a second glance:
Former Sen. Jon Kyl, a longtime Republican colleague, said McCain would likely draw a challenger but predicted he would prevail. Kyl is quoted as saying the state party make-up next year will be different from the one that censured McCain in January.
“I think you’ll see a different party make-up after the primary election. There will be a new group of precinct committeemen. I don’t think you’ll see many of the same old faces,” Kyl said.
Kyl’s facile words tell a much more significant story. The McCain/Kyl/Flake establishment has been hard at work attempting to remove diligent, conservative elected Republican precinct committeemen and replace them with compliant moderates. This past Primary Election cycle, when committeemen are elected, there were numerous reports of recruiters being paid for enlisting new people to run against conservatives. McCain’s frequent censures were a national embarrassment the McCabal doesn’t want repeated.
Thursday’s post MC GOP Chair LaFaro exposes Wes Gullett in complaint explains the efforts being taken to oust elected committeemen.
This post card is an example of those sent out by then-Sen. Jon Kyl in 2012, as he inserted himself into the LD 28 precinct committeemen races and attempted to facilitate the removal of conservatives.
In the end, it’s all about maintaining McCain and his ilk, even if it means destroying the Arizona Republican party by eliminating committed party stalwarts in the process.
Risks of doing nothing are too great as terrorists present massive global and US threat
U.S. Rep. Ted Poe, a Texas congressman, former felony prosecutor and judge was a guest on Newmax TV’s America’s Forum Wednesday. Poe, a member of the House Judiciary Committee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security discussed the macabre beheading of American journalist James Foley by ISIS terrorists and the connection between these depraved fanatics and Mexican drug cartels. Watch the interview with host J.D. Hayworth here.
Poe drew a disturbing connection between the Mexican drug cartels invading our Southern border and terrorist organizations such as ISIS, acknowledging the drug cartels use the same operational plan as terrorist groups do.
“They kill their opponents, they behead their opponents, they brag about it and they have operational control of many portions of the southern border of the United States. Mexico doesn’t. The United States doesn’t. Otherwise they wouldn’t be crossing daily with their drugs. They’re as vicious as some of these other terrorist organizations. We need to recognize that this is an organized international crime group that is a threat to the world. We have to deal with them as such,” Rep. Poe said.
In May 2011 we posted Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns, warning of the increasing dangers posed to America and her citizens by terrorists. It includes a news photo showing Hispanic leaders meeting with then-PLO leader Yasser Arafat in Beirut Lebanon in 1980, as an image of the ruthless Sharia dictator Ayatollah Khomeini watches over the meeting.
At the time, ABC 10 News in San Diego filed this alarming televised report detailing that “Hezbolah has operated in South America for decades and then Central America, along with their sometime rival/ sometime ally Hamas. Now, the group is blending into Shi’a Muslim communities throughout Mexico. Other pockets along the U.S.-Mexico border region remain largely unidentified as U.S. intelligence agencies are focused on the drug trade.”
We live in a post-9/11 world. Americans can no longer afford complacency. The federal government (FEMA) has a little-advertised website Ready.gov that warns Americans of risks and the need to be prepared in cases of disasters. This page and its links specifically address terrorism.
Hayworth joins Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Sen. Judy Burges and an impressive list of state Senators and Representatives, law enforcement professionals, NRA, former Senate President Russell Pearce, and Arizona’s conservative voters in supporting Attorney General Tom Horne
You have done a very effective job as Arizona’s Attorney General; that’s why I’m proud to endorse your candidacy for re-election.
Your insistence on truly protecting our Borders and opposing Amnesty for illegals has earned you the scorn of the Open Borders/ Establishment crowd.
I hope that Arizona Republicans won’t again be deceived by candidates who talk tough during the campaign season…only to slink back into working for Amnesty once safely re-elected.
Your consistent, conservative approach is greatly appreciated.
Good Luck in next week’s Primary Election!
United States Congressman for Arizona

The Arizona Republican has been named host of the news and talk show “America’s Forum” on the newly launched Newsmax TV.

“With his experience in Washington, D.C., we believe he can give our viewers unique insight into how Washington works,” Ruddy said.
Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne will join Hayworth tomorrow, Thursday June 26, following the “Newsmax Now” update at 8:00 am, AZ Time.
