McCain hosts Sedona shindig: Your invitation is in the mail

Well, not actually.

Although John McCain wants your money and your vote, he doesn’t want YOU. According to the website, “registration for this invitation-only, closed-press event is full.”

These are the high-profile folks you could have mingled with at the third annual weekend conference, if only you had made the cut. As you nose around the site, be sure to take a gander at the high dollar donor list, with categories ranging from “$100,000 and above” down to a paltry “$24,999 and under.” The McCain Presidential Campaign and Bloomberg Philanthropies are among the eye catchers, but San Francisco-based Democrat donors Lisa and Greg Wendt, should ring a bell or two. As FrontPage magazine reports, under the guise of the benign sounding “Arizona Grassroots Action PAC,” the longtime McCain contributors helped raise nearly $300,000 to oust elected conservative committeemen —- the backbone activists of the AZ GOP —- who voted in a stinging rebuke to censure McCain in 2014. Colorado businessman Gregory Maffei and the Wendt’s wrote the PAC’s largest checks.

 Leftist Democrats are integral to McCain’s programs. Last year, Hillary Clinton, who McCain has referred to as a “rock star,” was featured.  Past speakers besides Clinton, have included “Vice President Joe Biden, Actor/Director Ben Affleck, CEO’s from major corporations and Presidents, Prime Ministers, Foreign Ministers, experts and civil society leaders from around the world.” This year even Actress/Cougar Demi Moore who co-founded a group fighting sexual exploitation of children, will be in attendance.

While National Security is prominently featured on McCain’s Sedona Forum agenda, not a word is mentioned about border security or the fact that besides not having a clue who is entering our country, we are losing our national identity as reported Wednesday by the Washington Examiner. The newspaper points to recent U.S. Census figures that indicate a record 51 million immigrants in 8 years will account for 82% of U.S. growth. The Center for Immigration Studies analyzed the statistics and concluded that by 2023, one in seven U.S. residents will be an immigrant, rising to one in five by 2060 when the legal and illegal immigrant population is expected to total 78 million and minorities will be the majority.

Staring 80 in the eye, the egotistical and mean-spirited McCain is running for yet another six-year-term. We have a choice. Get onboard.

    McCain is unprincipled like his BFF Hillary. He has set up a self serving foundation and takes money from all comers.

    Well, in my usually not very humble opinion, a phone call or 3 to AZGOP H.Q. is in order, to let robert mcgraham traitor slug & company know that WE KNOW that our (r) senior senator is cavorting with these marxist freeks! Here’s th’ number: 602-957-7770 . Make th’ call!

    • Doc says:

      DONE. left a message with “Laura”, (mcgraham’s secretary?) letting her know that I was aware of mcTraitor’s li’l shindig Friday with dim-0-craps…among other things.

  3. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    Good advice, Doc, although I can guarantee you Robert McGraham won’t care what any conservatives have to say. His allegiance is to John McCain, as we have seen all too clearly.

    Great takeaway line from the FrontPage Magazine link referencing McCain’s liberal underwriters Lisa and Greg Wendt: “If McCain had put in as much effort into running for president as he did in fighting conservatives, he would have been in the White House.”

    • East Valley PC says:

      Speaking of Robert Graham, why is he omitted? Doug McDucey is on the list but McLoyalist McGraham gets short shrifted? There is obviously no honor among these cohorts.

    • Doc says:

      Thanks, ACG! And you’re right about bootlicker mcgraham’s not givin’ a rip. I do these things so that I feel better. mcbootlicker can lick mcTraitor’s boolsheet covered boots till hell freezes over as far as I’m concerned. He’s a hypocrite & a LOOZER.

      As for mcTraitor being in th’ whitecrib, I believe things would be SO MUCH WORSE than they already are if that were the case. mcTraitor’s been at this nasty game WWAAAAYYY Longer than this jughead rookie we’re currently stuck with.

  4. Saguaro Sam says:

    There is no doubt that McCain will be funding L’il Lindsay Graham’s run for the GOP nomination. What an expensive sham. Putting LIndsay up, merely to ruin the chances of Rand Paul.

    More hateful, spiteful behavior that is pathological in nature—part of his DNA.

    Just read this today on theblaze.com
    Another example of the hatefulness of the GOP in general and McCain in particular:

    President George W. Bush was hurt he was not included in the 2008 Republican Convention, Dana Perino writes in her new book “And the Good News Is.”

    Perino, who served as press secretary under Bush, wrote that there was a sense the McCain-Palin campaign “was stalling to make a decision” whether or not to include Bush “until it was too late for us to leave in time.”

    Bush did address the convention by satellite, but did not appear in person.

    “So instead of addressing the GOP that night, the President gave a short statement on hurricane preparedness” as Hurricane Gustav approached, the former White House press secretary wrote.

    Perino wrote that at the end of the statement, Bush noticed a live shot of the convention.

    He quietly asked, ‘Do you think they know they’re insulting me?’

    I waited a beat, looking at the screen with him.

    ‘Yes, sir. I believe they do.’

    Perino wrote that as they locked eyes she remembered “feeling angry on his behalf and yet so close to him that I gave up caring about the campaign at all anymore.”

    It’s a major disappointment to see Matt Salmon on the list of attendees, but I’ve come to expect nothing more. I’ve gotten to the point where I trust none of our supposed “representatives.” They don’t represent me or the interests of my family. They all feed us a load of BS on the illegal invasion and expect us to say, “Gracias.” They are all sellouts to the big bucks from the Chamber of Commerce lobbyists that keep their reelection campaigns afloat. It’s time for some fresh faces and actual representation.

    Refresh your memory with this piece of garbage:

    For all you highly-skilled drone pilots, these coordinates will get you to Cornville: 34°42′58″N 111°54′36″W
    From there, you are on your own.
    As always, should you or any member of your Anti-RINO Task Force be caught or killed, the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This post will self-destruct in five seconds. Well, not actually.

  7. Conservative Since Birth says:

    A few words to describe McCain:
    evil
    wicked
    the Devil
    depraved
    vicious
    corrupt
    base
    Satan
    vile
    nefarious
    pernicious
    destructive
    villainous
    atrocious
    heinous

    I, too, was “surprised” to see Matt Salmon’s name at a function with such Obama supporters as Jeff Immelt, Demi Moore, Cory Booker and Ben Affleck who asked PBS to leave out the fact that someone in his family background was a slave owner. They don’t come more “Progressive” than Ben Affleck. Was Barbra Streisand busy? Didn’t see her name. What is it these folks all have in common? Rhetorical question.

        can any of the “party uber alles” , “lesser of two evils”, “any republican is better than any democrat” gop/rnc drone still continue their bleating that we must vote republican or be damned any more and really mean it?

        “Exclusive — Empirical Vote Data Shows Democrats Still Control US Senate, Harry Reid’s Office Rejoices
        Senate Democrats still control the U.S. Senate, election results last November aside, an analysis of all the votes taken since Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) took over as Majority Leader shows.

        In fact, with two minor exceptions, every single vote that has passed the U.S. Senate since the beginning of this Congress in January has passed with at least—usually more than—93 percent of support from Democrats.”

        voting for these idiots makes no difference, they do not do what they are elected to do, they do what they do what they are paid off to do, voters be damned, and yet the sheep still vote for them and condemn those of us who will not do so and contribute to our own destruction.

        the republican party is in its death throes and it is self inflicted, sadly it will be taking the country with it and they know it and do not care.

        “Making History: Senate GOP Vote with Obama at Record Pace

        Well, it appears that the entire outcome of the 2014 elections was one big exercise in election fraud. Except on a national scale it wasn’t the result of faulty or rigged ballot machines. It was the result of rigged candidates.

        In case you were wondering why it appears Republicans are constantly voting with Obama on one critical issue after another, just know that your eyes are not playing tricks.

        “E-mails reveal that staffers from McCain’s office met with IRS personnel for six hours, 11 days before Lerner’s public admission of “inappropriate” actions. Judicial Watch summarizes:

        [Lerner] met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the IRS was not reining in political advocacy groups in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Senator McCain had been the chief sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act and called the Citizens United decision, which overturned portions of the Act, one of the “worst decisions I have ever seen.” Among those attending the meeting were key aides to the committee minority ranking member, John McCain.

        Both Senators did write a letter to then-Acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel following Lerner’s press conference, “claiming outrage that the subject had not even been broached in their committee staffers’ six-hour marathon meeting.” But their cries might have been a little too shrill to be believable.

        The letter also says “the interview covered, among other topics, how the IRS determines which groups to review, what actions are taken in connection with the IRS reviews, and how the laws and regulations are used to examine those groups.”

        This revelation served as chilling confirmation of a suspicion Tea Party groups had all along: they were under fire from both sides of the establishment in Washington, D.C. Republicans and Democrats worked together to crush their common enemy, actual conservatives.

        McCain recently announced that he will run for re-election to the Senate in 2016.”

    This ego massage is called McLegacy. His abysmal presidential campaign has forever deprived him of fulfilling his dream of a presidential library.

  9. Saguaro Sam says:

    McCain’s puppets do his bidding on the Loretta Lynch vote today:

    The Senate voted Thursday to confirm Loretta Lynch as the next attorney general, with the help of 10 Republicans who ignored complaints that Lynch would use her new position to support what many say is President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional immigration plan.

    The Senate voted 56–43 in favor of Lynch, approving her with help of Sens. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Thad Cochran (Miss.), Susan Collins (Maine), Jeff Flake (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Ron Johnson (Wis.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

    • Braveheart says:

      Sen. Ted Cruz spoke impassionedly on the senate floor today about Loretta Lynch’s unsuitability to be U.S. Attorney General. Then he did not stick around to vote. As a Cruz supporter, I’d like to know why.

      • ZOO says:

        Cruz was likely privy to the advance vote numbers and knew his vote would mean nothing – just like yours, mine, and every other conservative who has voted for Republicans. The GOP gets their [Democratic] agenda through and laughs at the fools who are now screaming “primary!” at the ten volunteer ‘sacrifices’ who voted with the Dims.

        Reince Priebus could hold a press conference tomorrow and openly admit how the GOP has outsmarted the conservative electorate at every opportunity since they gave them the Senate – and the very next day the sound of heel-clicking and clinking cocktail glasses at any Republican fund raiser would deafen Helen Keller. No one is laughing harder than Democrats. They know monumental ineptitude when they see it.

  10. Maggie says:

    Another good post, SRAZ!!
    I read that former CIA Director David Petraeus was sentenced in federal court today for leaking classified material to his girlfriend while she was working on his book. He entered a guilty plea to the criminal charges. How can he be listed as appearing at this event in Sedona? Sounds like a Mcpuffed up list.

  11. LEO IN TSN says:

    Sen. Cruz’ non-vote is a non-issue. Sen. Cruz knew that if the Lynch nomination hit the Senate floor, the list of RINOS had already declared their support and she would be confirmed. He knew the important vote was the “Cloture” vote that ended debate and forced the nomination to the floor. That vote required a 61 majority, and guess what? That vote had been accomplished when a bigger list of RINO traitors voted to end cloture and assure her nomination.

    Here are the names:
    Republicans voting to end debate were Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Richard Burr (N.C.), Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.), Thad Cochran (Miss.), Susan Collins (Maine), Bob Corker (Tenn.), John Cornyn (Texas), Jeff Flake (Ariz.), Cory Gardner (Colo.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Ron Johnson (Wis.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), Mitch McConnell (Ky.), Rob Portman (Ohio), Pat Roberts (Kan.), Mike Rounds (S.D.), Jon Thune (S.D.), and Thom Tillis (N.C.).

    Now some of these traitors can tell the little people back home, “I voted against her nomination” when the truth is they voted to assure her nomination. Welcome to the new McGOP. Do we see any similarities between these worms and the Marxists they are accommodating? There don’t seem to be any differences, hmmmm?

    God bless America.
