Hundreds of violent Islamic fanatics merely a “small group” to McCain
After mobs of radical protestors stormed Mideast U.S. embassies and in Libya murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans on diplomatic duty, John McCain said Tuesday’s murderous attack at the U.S. consulate “was the work of a small group of violent extremists, whose goals and actions could not be more at odds with those of the people and government of Libya.” He also referred to the violent mob as a “small group of fanatics.”
The barbarous attack, originally blamed on a YouTube video depicting Islam’s prophet unfavorably, is now being exposed as coordinated to coincide with the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on American soil. McCain might find a similarity since those horrific attacks resulting in the horrific deaths of nearly 3,000 innocent victims, were also perpetrated by a “small group” — 19 — violent Muslim extremists.
After the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, the Obama administration issued a bizarre apology, including this gem: “The Embassy of the United States condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.”
Let those shameful words sink in: The U.S. “condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.”
Today in the latest of a series of consulate attacks in the Mideast, hundreds of protesters chanting “death to America” and “death to Israel,” stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen, burning the American flag.
Delivering his remarks on the U.S. Senate floor, McCain chastised, “I know many Americans may feel a temptation, especially with so many domestic and economic challenges facing us here at home, to distance ourselves from people and events in Libya, and Egypt, and elsewhere in the Middle East. We cannot afford to go down that path,” he said.
Horse puckey, Johnny Boy. These are the people you identified as our friends as you helped Hussein Obama overthrow Mubarak and Qaddafi. While neither of these leaders were saints, in fact, they were both working with our military and intelligence agencies very closely for the last few years. Now we have the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood in charge and the Israelis are right on. The actions by you and your President have brought the time of Armageddon much closer much sooner than necessary.
If I were in charge, I would appoint you as our new ambassador to Libya, leave the embassy unguarded, and let you talk with your friends in a mutually rewarding way.
Sen. McCain and those in Congress who agree with him are part of the problem not the solution. We in AZ need to replace not only McCain but also all of his allies in DC or we’ll never be able to solve our problems at home as they help create them. We need to Drill our own oil and gas and leave those in the middle east who Hate US go down their own path to destruction, as at present we’re financing both ends of the War on Terror both Ours and Theirs. Time for US to Wake UP and Vote all of them OUT. God Bless You All; Van
Give me a break!! All of your high minded talk is worthless. You are as much a part of the problem as the disgusting John McCain. For you (and the other egomaniac Bryan Hackbarth with a mere 4% of the vote) to run in a US Senate race, in which you took only 6% of the votes and that you had no hope of either placing or showing in, let alone actually winning, played right into the hands of McCain and Kyl and helped Jeff Flake…the man you claimed to wanted to beat.
If you really wanted to keep Flake out, you should have encouraged your tea party pals to vote for Wil Cardon….the good man both you and Hackbarth sabotaged.
You should add another name to the two you currently use: Jerk.
I just can’t agree with this. The ten points these candidates racked up would have not saved Cardon who lost by a landslide. If you’re looking for a scapegoat, blame the heel-clicking Third Reich Republican primary voters who have kept McCain and Kyl in office for 30 and 20 years respectively. Had Cardon lost by ten points or less, then you might have an argument. But that said, I don’t think any candidate with enough signatures to run should ever back down to anybody.
Cardon spent sufficient amounts of money to make himself known and to demonstrate a clear difference between himself and Flake. You can bet your *** that Flake drew 100% of McCain/Kyl loyalists, and another 100% of the checked-pants country club crowd who have been fighting immigration enforcement in Arizona since day one. And finally, the piss-poor voter turnout of 30-some percent says it all. Apathy does not win elections.
ZOO: Just 28.09 percentage of the registered voters even bothered to turn out for this election. Sure, anyone who makes it to the ballot has a “right’ to run. But let’s use some logic here. Why do you think John McCain was so thrilled to have the little runt Jimmie Lee Deakin in the mix when he was challenged by conservative JD Hayworth? Every vote counts, especially in close races. No, Cardon didn’t come close, but he was at a distinct disadvantage coming into the race with no political name ID (a plus as far as I’m concerned) a staff that could have been better, and the establishment backing the Flake. I’ll concede the backing of McCain and Kyl didn’t help Kirk Adams or Ben Quayle. But the fact that the geezer senators work so hard to influence elections should disturb us all. They were even involved in races for precinct committeemen, endorsing RINOs over conservatives each and every time!!
Whatever motivates a “Van the Radio Man” (few even know his last name and “Van the Radio Man” doesn’t show up on their ballots) or a Hackbarth is a mystery since they know they haven’t a prayer of winning. There are races where this type of candidate changes the dynamics of the election — for the worse.
I still maintain they are looking for their names to appear in print as having run for the US Senate. They are probably also hoping their great grandchildren don’t see the pathetic numbers they pulled
Fed Up and Zoo both of you are right. Van and Jimmy both runts of the highest order had these egos and both too ignorant to realize they had no chance. McCain kept pumping money into Jimmy Lee’s campaign to keep him in the race, and Jimmy Lee ran against JD and not McCain. Van there are no words in my arsenal to say what a stupid little twit he is. I know him personally, and truthfully he had no one that actually knew him that supported him. But the same idiots supported Van who supported Jimmy Lee. Jerk is too good a name for Van.
There is only one Senator across the Country that got elected with no political experience, but he had name reccognition from his Father. Rand Paul. But when the winds changed all these novices thought they could get into any office and make names for themselves. Hackworth of whatever his name is, who in the hell was he, just a third interloper trying to collect monies to travel the state? Many of these people are just out of work and needs jobs, nevermind they have no solutions either. We still have some of the Ron Paul people running against Mitt Romney, and to make matters worse some are actually JD Hayworth supporters who knew how Jimmy Lee was syphoning votes from JD instead of McCain.
After what was done this week you would think they would join forces, but the problem is RP, he will try and stop a Republican before he tries to stop a Democrat, ahhhhh John McLiar Jr.
Fed Up: There were rumors early on when Cardon emerged that he was simply the “Mormon Fix”, to guarantee that an amnesty-sucking LDSer would win. I never subscribed to this crapola and attributed it to the Flake camp.
A couple of weeks ago, a commentor on another site posted a link to his own blog, and caught my attention with this line:
“…Cardon plans to drop within three to four weeks of the primary if he makes it that far…”
This caught my eye because the blog was posted September 11, 2011! I was shocked at this revelation, and accused the blogger of editing-in that line after the fact, which he denied. In the bantering that followed, the blogger made the following observations:
1) McCain, Kyl, and Flake knew in 2010 that Kyl would retire at the end of his term. Fearing that J.D. Hayworth would be a threat to Flake for Kyl’s seat in 2012, McCain baited and drew-in Hayworth to run against himself in 2010. (If you recall, after remaining silent for years with Hayworth’s KFYI McCain-bashing, McCain suddenly DID respond and taunted J.D. to challenge him. (The Hayworth “free money” informercials was McCain’s hidden ace in the hole.)
2) The Wil Cardon campaign against Flake was that of a “sham candidacy” concocted by McCain, Kyl, Flake, and Cardon. Wil Cardon, a friend and neighbor of Flake, had been a supporter and contributor to Flake for years. (You will also recall that a post-election Flake stated that he and Cardon were still friends and hopefully would be having dinner together soon.)
3) Cardon pulled his TV ads the day of early voting – as planned.
Arizona Republic, McCain’s go to Dan Nowicki wrote two articles – Cardon pulls out. Early vote went to Flake because of voter apathy and Cardon is a quitter? (As the Nowicki articles surfaced, I myself posted the Politico article here, where the Cardon campaign denied the stories, and said that Cardon was busy filming new commercials for the home stretch – which NEVER materialized.)
4) Cardon has/had several Kyl Senate staffers on his campaign as well as several McCain Machine workers from the get go.
I believed that #4 was the smoking gun to authenicate the other points and challenged the blogger to post the NAMES of these staffers as proof – those never materialized either. With that, I thought none of this was worth anybody’s time. But a lot of this blogger’s theories made perfect sense, and some nagging questions remain:
1) Why DID Cardon quit just as the fire bell rang for prime time?
2) Why DID his campaign lie to Politico about new campaign spots being filmed?
3) How did a 22-point spread when Cardon quit become a 50-point spread on election day? Are GOP voters so f****** shallow that they wanted bragging rights that they voted for the winner?
Perhaps these are better conjecture for discussion than how Van and Hackbarth screwed things up.
Hi Zoo; I suppose it’s easier to blame me for him losing than the fact that his campaign spent millions with no real direction or plan to succeed. I’m still working on getting things done in AZ and as far as no one knows who I am, this is wishful thinking as apparently Fed Up does, I wish everyone who posts would use real names. The real issue here should be why was the press and media not covering the Race and no real debates etc. after an 18 yrs. of no open seat this should of been covered and open for debates etc. I believe this was set up by McCain’s people as he didn’t want any coverage as Flake is a weak candidate at best. Now as for others running well after spending one yr. and over 55,000 miles on the road with countless hours of events etc. anyone who thinks this was just an exercise in whatever should try it. We unfortunately never had the funds we’d hoped for or believe we would of been better able to accomplish the goal, however met many very concerned and supportive Voters and hope to make a difference on more issues in the future. God Bless You All; Van
ZOO-Incredable Info you have…my GOD! Is our Party…Our COUNTRY SO SKREWED UP? Have those of us within who’ve worked so hard been this naive? I’m disgusted with this whole mess.
Thanks Doc, I wish I could take the credit. I’ve been sitting on this a couple of weeks waiting for those campaign staff names; perhaps that part was baloney. But you have to admit, a lot of this stuff seems to make some sense. Whether it is accurate or total crap, the questions were are left with are fairly reasonable.
Hi Van. McCain racketeered this primary and the powers that are (perhaps the state party) has been silent. I’m starting to believe the McMachine was hard at work long before we recognized it.
ZOO-Conspiracy Theorists of SRA Unite! Your theory surely does seem to fill in a lotta’ gaps, though….
Nope, just ain’t so.
Wil Cardon ran a sincere campaign against McFlake, running against his liberal record and deceptive promises. In turn, he was attacked personally, viciously and falsely, in true McAmnesty style. Wil Cardon didn’t submit himself and his family to that campaign terrorism just to help McFlake and McAnmesty.
The truth is that the big $$ boys from the COC crowd and the LDS don’t want any conservatives in office. They all threw their $upport to McFlake, $upported a few little deakin-esque twits to siphon off votes, and it was then up to all us little folk to try to fund Cardon. On primary day, the LDS zombies, along with the COC boys and all their workers, voted as directed and presto—McRino is in.
This is no surprise strategy. The COC boys were so upset when Tom Morrissey was elected State Chair that they publicly announced they would strangle the state GOP by withholding their fund$. They have done exactly that, and that is why we have seen the State Board squishily sliding to the left.
Nope, Wil Cardon got hayworthed, big time. The RINO faction is still very powerful in AZ, and the Tea Party has gone to sleep.
God bless America.
1) Why DID Cardon quit just as the fire bell rang for prime time?
2) Why DID his campaign lie to Politico about new campaign spots being filmed?
LEO-Either way, 1’s just as bad as th’ other. I cannot bring myself to vote dim-0-crap…but th’ mcSTAIN cabal WILL NOT GET A VOTE from me. As to our Party, You are correct, th’ R.I.N.O.’s are like an infection…
Small groups – in over 7 countries now. What a complete idiot. Once again McCain shows his allegience to Obama and MB over the US.
With friends like John McCain, Ambassador Stevens and the other dead embassy staff didn’t need enemies.
Hey folks! Wake up to this fact. If you like John McCain, you’re gonna love Jeff Flake. You should have screwed your heads on straight, disregarded the vicious dirt thrown by Flake’s amnesty buddies at Club for Growth and voted for Wil Cardon. Too late to undo the results of too much TV watching and not enough reading and thinking.
The elderly mccain is obviously due for an eye exam! The PHOTOS I’ve seen depict small groups all rite…OF HUNDREDS!!
…ABSO-FREEKIN’-LUTELY NOT votin’ for flake…
A vote for Flake is a vote for McCain is a vote for Flake is a ……you get the picture, Doc. I know you do! A lot of us feel the same way. My only concern is the Supreme Court, but Flake is so flaky, I have no trust in him doing the right thing anyway.
Sadly Orion, I do get it. These people are like rotten TEETH! They need to go, & it’s a PAINFUL Proceedure but ya’ feel so much better when it’s done…
I have never voted democrat but we will win the Senate without Flake, we need to vote for Carmona to keep another McPieceoftrash out of the Senate. Let McLiar retire as soon as he realizes he has no influence any longer.
I would suggest to John McAmnesty that he take a look at Drudge Report this evening. It is beyond sickening.
Hey Sam! That’s a picture of mcstain’z “small group” of extreamists…I’d hate to see th’ large group….
This reminds me of the bloody revenge insulted Muslims tried to exact over a Danish newspaper’s cartoon depicting Mohammed that didn’t suit their fancy. When a Muslim is insulted people die. Meanwhile a publicly funded museum had “Piss Christ” on display. It was a small plastic crucifix that was submerged in a glass of what appears to be a yellow liquid. It was not considered offensive until the artist Andres Serrano described the substance as being his own urine
Although people are rightly outraged, no deaths occur. No threats of death occur. Western Judeo-Christian based faiths do not incorporate violence as a component. THAT’S the difference!
For the third day in a row, Egyptian protesters have fought with riot police near the U.S. embassy in Cairo. Egypt’s Islamist President Mohammed Morsi claims to want to protect foreign embassies in Cairo, where police were using tear gas to disperse protesters at the U.S. mission. Believe him and you’ll believe anything.
America’s Muslim president is all over the map. Who the hell can anyone believe? Obama is no more credible than the leader of the Muslim state of Egypt. And McCain? He is the wuss who put us in the position in the first place. What has Jeff Flake said? His muted statement speaks volumes:
“My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who were killed yesterday in a violent attack on our consulate in Libya. Such senseless acts of violence cannot be tolerated or justified,” said Flake.
What BS!! Sorry to predict a Republican loss, but Jeff Flake will lose to Carmona.
Some additional suggested reading for John McManiac:
from the freebeacon.com (the Washington Free Beacon)
. . .”Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson “did not permit U.S. Marine guards to carry live ammunition,” according to
multiple reports on U.S. Marine Corps blogs spotted by Nightwatch. “She neutralized any U.S. military capability that was dedicated to preserve her life and protect the US Embassy.”
While Marines are typically relied on to defend U.S. territory abroad, such as embassies, these reports indicate that the Obama administration was relying on Egypt’s new Muslim Brotherhood-backed government to ensure American security, a move observers are questioning as violence in Cairo continues to rage. . .”
Frankly, I couldn’t care less about WHAT John McCain has to say on anything. He’s a has-been and the idiots of Arizona that voted for him deserve to be embarrassed by him. I wish FOX would stop providing him a showcase.
My much bigger concern is Nobama and the fact that he continues to lead in the polls. This indicates a disturbingly uneducated, low information electorate that relies heavily on Nobama sycophants for their “news”. Or they listen to John Stewart which is almost as bad.
1984 is here.
Our country was attacked, Americans were killed and still there is no leadership from Nobama- and yet Americans have not made a big deal about this! We are funneling billions to our enemies to help them kill us and the goobledy-gook coming out of the left is beyond belief, even for them. All we hear is that “the people of Libya are sorry”, “some of the bad guys have been caught”- who cares? They only want our money! Nothing will happen to those arrested other than to become martyrs to the cause of jihad.
We have an absolute incompetent in the White House. THAT is what we should all be upset about and it should be all over the Internet: people of swing states: HOW DUMB ARE YOU?
patriotmom-Here’s an example of how dumb:
McCain still sounds like the Obama apologist he has been since the 2008 election. He gave that election away. I have always maintained that when he was privately filling out his ballot, he linked the arrors next to Barack Hussein Obama’s name.
