Jon Kyl: AZ República bids him a slobbering farewell

Liberal newspaper never disappoints

Sunday’s daily has a slobbering and lengthy paean to retiring U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, referred to as a “real workhorse.” Reporter Dan Nowicki licks Kyl’s boots in the best of fashion, although he omits pertinent facts. As a refresher, we’ll include only a few since the deceptive elitist Kyl’s foot is already on a banana peel and he has insured a continuation of his aisle-crossing legacy by endorsing his replacement, Jeff Flake

Here, with Kyl’s mailer included, is clear evidence that the man Nowicki refers to as “Arizona’s highest-ranking lawmaker in Washington in decades,” still had plenty of time to meddle in lowly precinct committeeman elections in neighborhood districts as he promoted RINO candidates.

And more?

I had hoped to stay out of the Republican senate primary,” (campaign video) proclaims a striving-to-sound-earnest Jon Kyl in this ad supporting Jeff Flake. To demonstrate his sincerity, he has doffed his tie and shakes his head in disbelief as he struggles to convey the gravity involved in getting his hand-picked successor elected to fill the senate vacancy created by his retirement. “Jeff Flake is my choice,” declared a somber and clearly worried Kyl. If his claim to stay out of the senate primary sounds more than a bit phony, it’s due to the fact that Kyl and his seatmate John McCain crisscrossed the state with Flake following an in-tandem endorsement of Flake nearly three weeks earlier — clear evidence that they regard the electorate as fools.

Here’s Kyl’s own farcical 2006 primary campaign ad, in which he used Republican and Democrat Arizona Sheriffs as dupes as he staged his feigned support of securing the porous border, which serves as the major portal for illegal immigration into the United States. Yet immediately after returning to Washington, he joined McCain for another round of what they cunningly termed “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” —  nothing short of a euphemism for amnesty.

Kyl has voted for the confirmation of numerous liberal Democrats. In June, he supported Obama’s appointment of Andrew Hurwitz to the already far-left Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the most overturned court in the nation. He previously supported Mary Murguia, another amnesty proponent, to the same federal appellate court. Judge Murguia’s twin sister, Janet Murguia, is the President and CEO of the racist National Council of La Raza.

Kyl and McCain also voted in support of the confirmation of Eric Holder, Obama’s hand-picked selectee for U.S. Attorney General. Twenty-one Republicans voted against Holder, but not these two enablers. They even voted in support of the nomination of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. After numerous unsuccessful searches to verify the duo’s vote on Janet Napolitano, the best answer was found here.

Promoting himself as pro-life, he hosted high-dollar fundraising events for pro-abortion RINO Maine Senator Susan Collins 3,000 miles from her home, here in Arizona. Both Collins and her equally liberal-so called Republican colleague, Sen. Olympia Snowe voted with the Democrats for ObamaCare, the nationalized overhaul of America’s health care delivery system.

Jon Kyl is a liberal wearing a Republican cloak. Expect the same from Jeff Flake.

    This column is mean spirited bile. You should be thankful for a public servant of Jon Kyl’s character.

    • Westnash says:

      Any of these guys who says: “I am just here to serve” Check out Kyl’s retirement pay and benefits.


      • Observer says:

        How interesting that the bonafide attack dog attacks others. You attempt to dominate this conservative site with your left-wing spew and beat up on conservative commenter eubykdisop at every opportunity. Take your own advice, Westnash!!

        You’ve shown yourself to be a joke.

    • Attila The Hunny says:

      I believe you’ve previously been identified as the son of Sandra O’Connor and as the RINO McCain acolyte chair of District 28. Small wonder you don’t like this factual characterization of Jon Kyl. These are not opinions. It’s obvious to those of us who read this they are facts, with links provided to substantiate the allegations against Jon Kyl. Did you read the links? Some of them are actual US Senate votes.

      Why don’t you admit that you are also the lapdog of Kathy Petsas, who speciously defines conservatives as “Kooks,” and advocates replacing Platform Republicans with mushy “moderates” who vote with Democrats at the legislature and within GOP leadership?

      That’s a proclivity your mother had while on the US Supreme Court. No wonder you are so supportive of aisle-crosser Kyl. The acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree.

      I’m certain I previously read that you were the ONLY one who stood up at the Republican Executive Guidance Committee meeting and supported those Republican PCs who endorsed Democrats.

      We’re on to you.

      • Westnash says:

        Why do you and Euby spend your time attacking other posters. Your way isnt the only way and Arizona needs to rethink its Republican party before it evaporates.

      • eubykdisop says:

        We attack your ideas, as expressed in your posts, Westnash, because they very often are aligned with “progressive” rather than Conservative positions.

        Your way, thank goodness, isn’t the only way either so you’ll just have to bear others disagreeing with you.

        Why don’t you tell us, Westnash, why, like a lfetist, you attack combat veteran and staunch anti-communist, the late Senator Joseph McCarthy? How is it that so are so precisely alinged with the most radical leftists regarding McCarthy?

    • bomble says:

      Indeed, Shocblog. Indeed.

    • Chuck says:

      Just a simple question: Do you count “character” as voting for Democrats in high security and judicial positons as Kyl has repeatedly done?

  2. CD9 says:

    Glad he’s gone, but what you bet Obama makes him a Federal Judge?

    • Villanova says:

      Wrong! This will never happen. No one gets a judgeship at age 70+. Obama will continue to appoint younger liberals who will be dispensing leftward opinions for decades to come.

  3. Westnash says:

    Unfortunately, as weak as Kyl is he is a great deal more conservative than the Giffords and Napolitano, one of whom could be elected if the Republicans in Arizona continue to shoot themselves in the foot.

    If the Republicans in the city, county, and state government continue to waste money and get involved in lost cause issues Arizona will become the next California.

    • eubykdisop says:

      Tell us, Westnash, what the “lost cause issues” are.

      • Westnash says:

        Euby, with your immense knowledge of history it is amazing you grovel at the foot of McCarthy.

        I have attempted to post his actual war record but SRA has become so enamored with censorship that they delete it. You can look it up.

      • eubykdisop says:

        Westnash, your juvenile and repeated failed attempts at sarcasm, by continually referring to my “vast knowledge” or “immense knowledge”, are pointless and add nothing of value to the discussion. My level of knowledge is not an issue. We all come with the knowledge we have.

        Secondly, I do not “grovel” at the foot of anyone. I have repeatedly presented facts about Senator McCarthy. That does not constitute grovelling, despite your mischaracterization.

        I have pointed out that the Venona files, the findings of the Moynihan Secrecy Commission and the statement of Hayden Peake, curator of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Historical Intelligence Collection, all prove you to be factually in error regarding your subjective smears and attempts at character assassination. Why don’t you speak to the Venona files, the Moynihan Secrecy Commission findings and the statement by Hayden Peake?

        Westnash, it is fact that Senator McCarthy enlisted in the Marines. It is fact that Senator McCarthy served in the Pacific Theater of Operations during WWII. It is fact that Senator McCarthy was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. It is fact that, to this day, the military has not seen fit, for any reason, to remove that award from Senator McCarthy. It is fact that Senator McCarthy was honorably discharged.

        How is it, Westnash, that you are in complete agreement with the liberal left regarding Senator McCarthy while you claim to be different from the liberal left? Why is it that you are so adamant and persistent in your vehement attacks on an honorably discharged combat veteran and U. S. Senator who did, in fact, reveal the presence of Communists in our country and within our federal government?

      • eubykdisop says:

        P. S.: I asked what the “lost cause” issues are which you referred to. You haven’t answered. Would you care to tell us now what you consider to be “lost cause” issues?

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      We are not “enamored with censorship.” As you can see, the first comment on this post, takes us to task for your views on Jon Kyl.

      We do however, freely utilize our prerogative to delete numerous wearisome comments that say essentially the same thing, irrelevant to the post, but using it as a vehicle to repeatedly slam one particular commenter. It’s clear you simply want to get your message out, irrespective of what the topic is. THAT is why some of your comments are not seen.

  4. Doc says:

    …fine, great, so long, GET OUT R.I.N.O….

    …federal judge…nuthin’ would suprize me….

  5. Sgt. Preston says:

    Thanks for this good information. We’ve obviously been taken for fools for a long time. I’m sorry to admit I was unaware of these facts. I’ve never cared for McCain, but was sure conned by Jon Kyl.

  6. LD 7 PC says:

    Kyl is just slicker than McCain but just as accomplished a liar. Before going to congress, he was a lobbyist for a major law firm and his father was a congressman. He knew the ropes.

  7. Mohave Mike says:

    We might as well swallow our pride and admit it….we Republicans have been had by Jon Kyl. I suspect we might have gotten more conservative representation had Jim Pederson won that senate seat. True, he was a Democrat, but a self-made successful businessman who came up from poverty and didn’t have the silver spoon upbringing of Jon Kyl. Over the years, I’ve regretted not voting for him. It couldn’t have been any worse than what we’ve had, and will have with Flake.

  8. MaskedTruthman says:

    Shocblog displays a vassal mentality. Vassal mentalities can be hazardous. That is why they had to develop vassaline.

  9. Standing Tall says:

    Wow! There are a lot of facts to digest, but that’s exactly what i’ve been doing. These links are excellent. Thanks, SRAZ!!

  10. MacBeth says:

    How much of a surprise is it that the liberal Arizona Republic would be extolling the virtues of Jon Kyl? He is right up there with McCain and Flake as their most favored Republicans…because they act like Democrats!

    Aside from these self evident truths, Happy New Year to all !

  11. Doc says:

    sen lindsay graham (mcstain’s best pal) gives “pumps” to th’ criminal-rookie…

  12. Hagar says:

    Good riddance to McKyl. Now how long will we have to endure McFlake? Do you suppose either Flake or Kyl will dare show up to the Republican Party county and state meetings in January?

    To the LD28 chair: Sandra Day O’Connor only had one qualification to be a Supreme. She was a woman. Her vacuous decisions were a joke.

    • Westnash says:

      Kyle doesnt need a judgeship but it will be interesting if he stays in Washington to lobby or returns to Arizona to retire and draw the taxpayer paid pension and benefits (COLA adjusted) the average Americans dont get.

    • Westnash says:

      You may not have to wait long to have a GABBY GIFFORDS or Janet Napolitano to take his place. The Arizona republicans have done an excellent job of electing democrats.
