Calculated to reduce citizen participation
CBS TV 5 is reporting that AZ Sen. John McCain has planned town hall meetings in Phoenix and Tucson to sell the unpopular Obama plan to authorize U.S. military action in Syria.
He is also scheduled to discuss the sweeping amnesty “reforms” which undermine Americans by granting citizenship to illegal invaders – a scheme being pushed by McCain and Jeff Flake along with the notoriously left-leaning Senate Gang of Eight.
Although the events are scheduled for Thursday morning in Phoenix and in Tucson this afternoon, there is deliberate secrecy surrounding the times and venues — which are mysteriously missing from the news report. In typical Mcfashion, the limited information and lack of advance notice is devised to curtail active citizen participation. Midday meetings are scheduled to keep those with jobs out of the action.
It turns out the Phoenix meeting is already underway at the Burton Barr Library at Central and McDowell. It began minutes ago at 10:00 am.
It’s past time to get angry. We are being deceived by those who lie to get elected and then refuse to face us.
* Correction: We previously — and incorrectly reported the Tucson meeting as Friday. It will be this afternoon.
H/T to commenter Kate who informs us that McCain will speak at the Tucson Interagency Fire Center, 2646 E. Commerce Center Place in Tucson at 2:00 pm. today.
This is the FOX News report detailing the heckling McCain received at the Phoenix meeting where he made his and Obama’s case for launching a U.S. attack on Syria. Although not in attendance, Jeff Flake supports the action, as heard in his audio response to the news station.
