Breitbart takes note of Sen. Kelli Ward; McCain fares badly

Salmon onboard with McCain on deceptive trade deal

It has often been a practice at Seeing Red AZ to run a post titled, “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.” We’ve included columns by respected conservative writers such as Victor Davis Hanson, Michelle Malkin, Thomas Sowell, Mark Steyn, Walter Williams, and Charles Krauthammer.

Today we introduce you to Michelle Moons, whose Breitbart News exposé on John McCain should be included among your weekend activities. Moons interviews Arizona State Sen. Kelli Ward who expresses her concerns over the secrecy surrounding the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), known colloquially as Obamatrade.

Make time to read, Exclusive —  Arizona’s Kelli Ward Slams Obamatrade Secrecy: Not ‘The Way Government Should Be Doing Business.’

We recently covered this “huge” issue and its inclusion of irreversible authority to the participating nations, including unrestricted immigration.

This site steadfastly encourages Sen. Ward and applauds her exploratory campaign for the U.S. Senate. To turn that effort into the real deal takes widespread support. Read her message here. Then help her out on this secure contribution page. We all know Arizonans are ready for a change after over three decades of the treacherous John McCain. Campaigns are costly. Please give what you can.

It matters.

    This is our second chance in six years to rid ourselves of John McAwful, and one we shouldn’t muff again. McCain is a vicious campaigner using surrogates to do his opposition research dirty work . Kelli Ward is his worst nightmare. A sharp, energetic woman and one who is a physician in addition to her state senate service. She’s incredibly well rounded… she’s a mother of three, married to an Air Force National Guard flight surgeon. Betch’a she knows a thing or two about Obamacare as well as Obamatrade…and running a tight ship!!

    why do you endorse a candidate before you know where they stand on issues they will be voting on, and not just rhetorical one liners.
    amnesty(definition and stance)
    exim bank
    defense spending and use
    obamacare and the so called “replacement” repubs are talking about

    and so many more issues that we know nothing about the position she may take, we do know she tried to take power from the voters recently and give it to pro common core bureaucrats, was this an act on behalf of chambers of commerce lobbyist, or possibly to buy good will from the establishment?

    more vetting is needed before endorsements should be given out and/or choices made.

    yes we all hate McCain and flake, but we don’t want to make the wrong choice in this election just because somebody carries a banner of so-called “conservative”.

    we should be looking for more candidates, not fewer and do the hard vetting and digging into past statements and votes, we MUST DO BETTER AT VETTING THESE POLITICIANS. so we do not elect somebody and go , sheesh we didn’t elect them to do THAT

    after all, most voters don’t even realize az’s REPUBLICAN congressmen are pro-amnesty by there own words, and even though they are they still get ringing endorsements come election time by “conservative” outlets.

    stay off the bandwagon.

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      We are proud to be on this “bandwagon.” After two senate terms, Sen. Kelli Ward has a very visible track record, h can be seen here:
      Scroll down to ‘Sponsored Bills’ to see where Sen. Ward stands on a wide range of issues. She has ably represented the people in Legislative District 5.

      • azgary says:

        so you do not think she should be vetted and have to answer questions, such as why she tried to take power from voters and give it to unelected pro-common core bureaucrats?

        or where she stands on the other issues that face the nation not just the state in which I have named a small number such as amnesty, obamacare and if it should be replaced or just eliminated etc….?

        failure to ask questions and DEMAND concrete answers, not just empty rhetoric(build the danged fence) and just going HOORAY because its not McCain and is sometimes referred to as “conservative” is why we never get true representation.

        the reason we have the crap representation in govt and in the party is failing to ask the questions and demand actual answers before voting is why we are stuck where we are, from Robert graham to our entire Washington delegation, in failing to demand answers and then not calling out liars full throatedly (like with our congressmen and amnesty) we are getting exactly what we deserve and are failing our future.

        ask the questions people before you vote, don’t take other peoples words for it, and if the politicians wont answer fully, they are doing it on purpose because you wouldn’t like their positions, or their position hasn’t been paid for yet.

    • Tucson GOP says:

      Where have you been? Sen. Kelli Ward has been traveling the state and taking questions that come directly from the audience, without having them pre-selected. I’ve heard her and am impressed….and I don’t impress easily. Who do you propose would be better to challenge McCain? Grousing is easy. Turning the status quo on its head takes sweat.

      As to agreeing on each and every issue from A to Z, I’ve been married for more than a while and there are plenty of times we don’t agree, but we agree often enough. Reagan was OK with the 70% but you apparently aren’t.

    For all of the speculation about a Matt Salmon candidacy, McCain’s co-schemer on the America constraining TPA and TPP won’t run. I don’t believe he’d put his family through the McCain machine, which is like a wood chipper. No one survives the blades. Besides, it appears Salmon is positioning himself as McCain’s successor. He has signaled his McCain-like softening position on illegals which is in line with his church’s directive.

    Salmon also did his LDS mission in China and is fluent in the Mandarin dialect. In the alternative to a senate run, he could benefit enormously on this slippery trade deal. Here he is pimping for the deal.

    The following is from the Free Republic website. Substitute Hillary’s name for McCain. This is how it could be done.

    ANOTHER ERIC CANTOR IN THE MAKING The massively-funded Hillary is campaigning, disguised as a “regular” American despite a trail of criminal activities that would make organized crime blush. STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE Then-House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor (R-Va), was, himself, considered untouchable and inevitable.
    Cantor had tons of money—spent 26X times his opponent’s $100K.

    Cantor consistently polled an astounding 34 points ahead of his unknown opponent.

    Cantor was considered “inevitable” and “untouchable”.

    Cantor had no ethics problems.

    Cantor sucked-up to an anti-tea party group.

    Cantor sucked up to the latino vote.

    Cantor showboated his leadership—was deeply into (gag) “diversity.”



    &l .t;> ran as Cantor’s TERM LIMIT

    Brat roundly opposed, and was vociferous against amnesty,.

    Brat ran as a staunch conservative (now in Congress he has a conservative rating 100%.)

    On election day, Brat got 18,000 more Repub out to the polls than the previous election that elected Cantor.

    • CD 8 PC says:

      Conservative Since Birth,
      Perfect analogy. Eric Cantor thought he had a lock on that Virginia congressional seat, especially given his leadership post. David Brat gave him a reality check. We can do it with McCain, but it will take grit, determination and money to counter the establishment onslaught.

      I have an idea to throw out. What do you all think? If the AZ GOP circles the wagons around McCain, conservative precinct committeemen ought to resign en masse, leaving Robert McGraham with a rudderless ship. By locking us out meetings where we were always welcomed, and sneakily slipping McCain and his gaggle of Vietnamese supporters into the state meeting, he has already shown us in no uncertain terms that we are worthless in his eyes

      • Conservative Since Birth says:

        Dave Brat, an unknown professor of economics, did have a bit of a positive push with Laura Ingraham, national talk show host, singing his praises. Laura made it her business to ‘know’ Dave Brat, attended fundraisers for him and explained how Eric Cantor was a power-hungry RINO and major amnesty supporter.

        Mark Levin must despise McCain and has interviewed Kelli Ward. Would be out of this world to be able to have a Sean Hannity, Levin or Glenn Beck talk up Kelli Ward (if she gets in).

        It will be a monumental task to get rid of McCain. I think, especially from AZ, sing the praises of Conservatism. There are a lot of us here. Dave Brat did it and continues to do so.

  5. Longtime Republican says:

    Vet Kelli Ward? From what I have seen of her, she will answer your questions and take a stand on her positions. She has impressed me with her actions so far and I stand ready to support her running against John McCain.

    Censorship rules at SRAZ!

      Censorship? You have been told that writing the same thing over and over to incessantly make the same point, will not fly here. The comment section is a place for dialogue not diatribe.
