Pre-election border policy reversals routine for deceptive McCain

As the 2016 election looms on the horizon, the deception begins anew. With his recent announcement that he will run for a sixth six-year senate term, John McCain told voters that he was spoiling for “a good fight.”

 The problem with John McCain’s good fights is that he views conservative Republicans as those he seeks to decimate.

After suffering an embarrassing 2014 censure by elected Republican state committeemen who passed a resolution chastising his left-leaning positions on a litany of significant issues, he retaliated by spending big bucks with an assist from out-of-state wealthy Democrat donors, to purge conservatives from the Arizona Republican Party precinct committeemen ranks.

His operatives flew into high gear recruiting McCain-friendly replacements to challenge those who sanctioned him. Precinct Committeemen are elected in Primary Elections. Though his capacity for vindictive revenge is boundless, McCain is not above briefly and fraudulently portraying himself in a more acceptable light in an effort to win votes.  That task is accomplished, as it has always been, by fabrication and misrepresenting his actual positions on key issues.

This past January 2015 John McCain and Jeff Flake were soundly rejected by a chorus of  boos and turned backs by elected state delegates attending the annual Statutory Meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party.

As a result the man who led the “Gang of Eight” liberal and RINO senate amnesty proponents with the acquiescing Flake in tow, is once again talking tough, calling for strict border enforcement and a stepped up removal of Central American illegals who have swarmed across the Mexican border into the U.S. He even voted against the confirmation of U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch citing her lax approach to illegal immigration, aware that his vote wasn’t crucial to her approval.  Flake covered him with his own “yea” vote.

After years of his pre-election lies, it’s clear that only left-leaners or the chronically uninformed would vote for McCain. This is why McCain, who needs the crossover votes to win, adamantly opposes closed Primary Elections. Prior to running for the U.S. Senate, he  was elected to the U.S. House in the old First Congressional District in 1982. In the intervening years, he has gotten bolder with his dishonesty. Remember this? It was just prior to his push for amnesty immediately after the votes were counted.

Haven’t you had enough?

    Senator McCain is a very skilled Liar and most in AZ and around the country only see this side of him, which by the way is promoted on a regular basis on the McCain / Fox network. There’s almost no way to defeat this man as he controls the GOP in AZ, anyone who doesn’t believe that ask yourselves a question, why don’t others in the GOP who say they agree with US come on local and national news shows and declare what a Liar he is publicly on a regular basis. When you all get a real answer from them let us know, as I’ve asked this question of many of them at events through out the state and always get the well you know we need Party Unity. We also end up with anyone who runs against him for the most part supporting him in the General, which by the way makes no sense to me at all. When I ran in 12 against now Sen. Flake I’d be asked at forums with Rep. Flake in the room if I lost would I support him, and the answer was always the same, if I’d support him I wouldn’t be spending the Time or Money running against him in the Primary, so for any who hadn’t guessed I voted NOTA on the ballots in 10 & 12 when it came to the US Senate race and others in the GOP who I know are not only RINOs but also Liars, or as they say the better of two Evils, as I was taught by my parents as a child there’s no good in Evil and never will be, and they among others in my childhood got their Wisdom from the Bible, which for me is the Guide book that started this country and without it and the Values it teaches we’re Losing. God Bless You; Van

    • LD 23 PC says:

      Your answer to the “support” question was correct! Why would any conservative support these Republicrats? They actually do us more harm than any liberal Democrats because too many uninformed are duped into thinking they are voting for Republicans. They are far different here in Arizona than they are in Washington DC colluding with liberals casting votes that support far left issues.

      • Clair Van Steenwyk says:

        Thank You for the encouraging words and hope more begin to understand this long before the Primary Season really starts and find some True Constitutional Loving Americans to run, rather than the selection now available.

    • LD 23 PC says:

      You misunderstand me. Although I liked your answer to the support question, I disagree with your premise that the “selection now available” to challenge McCain is somehow deficient. Senator Kelli Ward is a physician and a Constitutionalist, with far more to recommend her than you did as a challenger in your previous failed campaigns. She is level headed, gifted with high intelligence and has been elected twice to the state senate. I know a number of folks who live in Mohave County where Dr. Ward ably represents the people of Lake Havasu City, and they are very supportive of her candidacy.

      Her bio rivals yours OR that of John McCain.

      • Clair Van Steenwyk says:

        I understand fully your comments, however the votes on HB2184 in her Ed Committee after many spoke against removing the authority of the Supt. of Ed and then the Vote for SB1469 doing the same and more ended it for me and others, Ducey wanted this, got it and signed it into law, so not me, but then I’m only 1 voter. God Bless You; Van

        For any who aren’t familiar with how the system works, if this is ever tested in courtroom, the courts rule on INTENT and the statement with the X next to it, clearly lays out the intent of the Senate and Gov. as well, so no more deceit please, just get the Truth without all of the Political Non Sense or Maneuvering that usually is in the answer, they took any authority away from the Supt. in clear defiance of the Voters and at the Direction of Ducey with the Surrender of Supt. Douglas, who by way is nothing more than the rest of them, elected employees who are suppose to do the will of the people and the GOP Senators who colluded with them in this betrayal of the Voters.

      • Villanova says:

        Clair Van Steenwyk has a colossal ego and lacks even basic grammatical skills. He is obviously resentful of Dr./Sen. Kelli Ward. His haughty attitude is regrettable.

      • Clair Van Steenwyk says:

        Untrue statement by Villanova, not that I know it is, however no comment on the record I posted, and I do have some what of an ego as I believe most who post do, however I haven’t been called a liar for what is a stated fact, so please deal with the issues and not personal attacks, unless of course this is a normal tactic used by some, no answers to real issues just attack the person. This almost sounds like a Democrat or a RINO.

      • Clair Van Steenwyk says:

        Just to clear this Ego thing up a little; a confidence and satisfaction in oneself : self-respect, I do believe this is an asset, however also realize that most when attacking others must say something that seems to be unkind or unclear to some, I also realize attacks can be a good thing as when it happens to most they’re beginning to make a point the character assassins can’t deal with so they attack the person, I don’t like the method and don’t believe I’ve used it, however some do confuse facts with personal attacks, wrongly I might add, records/votes are facts and lay a route for the future and most would agree Sen. McCain’s record has done. God Bless You All; Van

    • azgary says:

      McCain takes heat for a position very little different than the az5 who are also for mass legalization aka amnesty.

      those who op[pose McCain and flake, yet not the az U.S. Reps are hypocrites of the highest order.

      all amnesty supporters are anti American citizen as are those who vote for them

      • Clair Van Steenwyk says:

        I totally agree with AZGARY, as most of those who support the others don’t pay much attention to comments made by them from time to time or many of the votes they’ve taken in violation of Our God Granted Unalienable Rights, however once you’ve drank the Unity/Better of Two Evil GOP/Graham Koolaid maybe it’s a lifelong condition.

    We interrupt your regularly scheduled topic to bring you this important message from the Republican National Committee:

    Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day released the following Cinco de Mayo message:


    • Clair Van Steenwyk says:

      What do you expect from an Open Border, Legal Status / Amnesty Elites, who run the GOP in the name of Unity and Better of Two Evils voting choices. They need to get this done now so the issue is dead in the water by 2016, don’t want division on this issue and haven’t found one candidate at present who’s addressing the real issue what will the do not only to Close the Border, but also to Remove the illegals and yes that includes those who’ve overstayed Visas and are working for Major GOP owned Companies, stay tuned. God Bless You; Van

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      Sickening how the establishment GOP pander to Mexicans, a ‘group’ that overwhelmingly votes Democrat. They’re still dreaming that Mexicans will put a Republican (Jeb) in the Blanco Casa.

      ‘Cinco de Mayo’ means “Fifth of May” in Spanish and is a festival of Mexican pride and heritage.

      WHY celebrate it HERE? That’s exactly what’s wrong with amnesty. There’s no “pride” in America. If there were, they’d come here legally.

    • Hometown Guy says:

      This Cinco de Mayo message is nothing short of pre-election pandering. I don’t remember seeing a St. Patrick’s Day message for those of Irish heritage or more to the point, Rosh Hashanah greetings for Jewish voters who like the Mexicans are also heavily represented in the Democrat column. Reince Priebus must be drinking Karl Rove’s piss.

      • ZOO says:

        “…The Republican National Committee (RNC) is a U.S. political committee that provides national leadership for the Republican Party of the United States…” – Wikipedia

        This isn’t your everyday annoyance that we’ve come to expect out of some GOP SOB, and is hardly a token gesture – if you read between the lines. This is coming from the “heart” of the GOP. Moreover it explains what Republicans have done (or pledged to) to stop Obamnesty since they gained control of the Senate.

        They have backed down at each opportunity, or they have assigned “splinter” voters mathematically calculated to defeat any meaningful measure that came up for a vote, or reversed the process to pass one in favor of the opposition. All this while the Democrats have stood totally united.

        The “message” the RNC put out today is what conservative voters can expect if they prop up the party once again in 2016.

    • Matt DeGennaro says:

      What we get from the Karl Rove-influenced RNC is akin to what we are being force fed here in Arizona by the McCain establishment and their willing toady Republican State Chairman Robert Graham. Conservatives have been squeezed out by these limp wristed fools who are giving away our country in the name of diversity. America IS diverse. The difference is previous immigrants arrived legally, were processed at Ellis Island, and wanted nothing more than to be Americans. We didn’t Press One for Italian, Polish, Yiddish, Hungarian, German, French or Chinese. They acclimated, educated their kids and proudly Americanized themselves.

      If America as we know it is to survive, we should stop celebrating diversity and return to celebrating unity.

  3. Conservative Since Birth says:

    I once called a McCain office in AZ (as opposed to D.C) and politely disagreed with his stance on the subject of illegal immigration. It was a white-hot time for the subject. The gal was as sarcastic as he is – showed no patience with the constituent (me) and hung up on me. I have a feeling he allows that kind of behavior if a caller disagrees with him – and she was probably beaten down by calls.

    I never voted for him – except against Obama. I just wish I could ‘influence’ in a good way those Republicans in AZ to shun him at the polls. I do try and I’ll keep trying. If you read the comment sections on Breitbart, et al regarding McCain’s antics – the vast majority of them are negative and these are people from around the country. I hope Arizonans finally get it. Wouldn’t it be nice to see him go down in his last try for power – but it will be difficult because of his Hugo Chavez/Barack Obama tactics to “win.”

    Every so often, I send out the “Danged Fence” (above) video just as a reminder of what a liar McCain is.

    • azgary says:

      people like McCain and flake cannot be defeated without a closed primary, that’s why Robbie mccgraham, the azgop, the gop/rnc and the chambers of commerce will do everything within their power to stop it from happening.

      they are everybit the enemy as the democrats, maybe worse, at least democrats stab you in the chest not in the back

  4. East Valley Conservative says:

    The important points to getting rid of John McCain are to talk to people and expose him for what he is. Just the facts will do the job very nicely without interjecting anger or opinion. Also, those Republicans who have zero chance of winning should stay out of this race. Remember the damage done by the introduction of little McWeasel Jimmie Lee Deakin into the 2010 race?

    Sen. Kelli Ward presents a wonderful opportunity to get the old dog out.

    Here is a very good summary of the john McCain facts:

    Lead story on breitbart.com this evening: McCain facing serious opposition in primary.

    We saw what he did to J.D.
    Let’s not let that happen again.

    The matter you’re grousing about in a comment we have not posted has been the subject of a previous message to you from SRAZ You have made your view on the topic of McCain’s challenger repeatedly. We will not keep posting the same negatively, regardless of how many inventive ways you find to word it. You have an extremely limited retinue of topics and grind at them incessantly regardless of what the post is about. Don’t waste your time or ours. Find something new or start your own blog.

    Clinton and democrats have come out today for total amnesty and citizenship what is juan mccain and juan bush going to give them?

    • American Dad says:

      …..Whatever it takes to win the Hispanic vote.
      The United States that we grew up in is already gone thanks to greedy politicians who care about nothing more than winning the next election. Remember that Jeb Bush even “forgot” his own ethnicity and identified himself as Hispanic when he registered to vote.

      • azgary says:

        and the republican party will never win the Hispanic vote, all amnesty does besides cheap labor to take jobs from American citizens is create a permanent democrat voting majority and will relegate us to third world status at best

      • Clair Van Steenwyk says:

        At the rate the GOP is going the Voters they really need to be concerned with aren’t the Hispanic vote but the Constitutional & Conservative Voters, many have left the GOP and others still there vote in Primaries and then skip General due to the hand picked candidates or vote and as I do Mark the NOTA write in box, where they’ve left me no real choices. God Bless You Van

  9. CD 8 PC says:

    Hey, Claire…. a question…how would you, as a hard working congressional candidate have felt if voters left your name unmarked? This bravado works both ways. Since you lost, a lot of voters must have ascribed to your voting technique.

    • Clair Van Steenwyk says:

      That’s the right all Americans have, when you have no choice you do as you chose, and by the way there was actually a candidate in Texas who changed his name to None of the Above back in either the late 1800s or early 1900s and won, so this is just a choice, I realize most believe it’s either wasting your vote or giving one to the other side, well voting for someone say like McCain is voting for the other side and I won’t do that, hope this is helpful. God Bless You; Van PS my first name is spelled Clair
