“Straight talking” McCain’s pro-life double talk

AZ GOP Chairman Robert Graham should call out McCain’s hypocrisy

Most of us have seen at least portions of the videos produced by Center for Medical Progress clearly showing Planned Parenthood’s high level executives casually discussing the barbaric harvesting and selling of pre-born baby body parts, including brains, hearts, lungs and livers — sometimes intact bodies — resulting from abortions performed in their facilities. Haggling over specific prices, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council President, Dr. Mary Gatter, brazenly stated, “I want a Lamborghini.”

Any reasonable person watching the undercover videos would be repulsed by the jovial and casual manner in which these unlawful negotiations were conducted — often over lunch.

In the latest reportable year, Planned Parenthood received subsidies of nearly $530 million — over half a billion dollars — in taxpayer funding, which many in Congress would like to see halted. A Senate bill aimed at defunding the abortion provider would redirect those millions of dollars to community health care centers and hospitals that actually provide women’s health care  services.

Pending legislation places the issue squarely in the political realm which is no doubt why AZ GOP Chairman Robert Graham called on Arizona Democrats to donate to charity the Planned Parenthood contributions they’ve received to promote the abortion industry’s issues.

Senate Bill 1881 was introduced just days ago, July 28, 2015. It’s aim is to prohibit federal funding to Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Jeff Flake’s name is missing from the list of U.S. Senators who signed on to Sen. Joni Ernst’s bill, but candidate John McCain is onboard.

This presents the ideal opportunity for Robert Graham to ask Straight-talking John McCain to explain his vote in favor of embryonic stem cell research. In 2012, McCain advised Republicans to leave the issue (of abortion) alone” and declared, “I think we have to have a bigger tent, there’s no doubt about it.” Instead he cited the urgency of passing “immigration reform.”

In this 1999 clip McCain advocates returning to the days before the pro-life plank was included in the Republican Platform — blandly referring to abortion as an “unpleasant procedure.”

Now as he runs for yet another 6-year term, McCain who will be 80 by Election Day, says: “As a lifetime pro-life supporter, I have fought for decades to defend the rights of all human life, especially those who cannot defend themselves.”

 John McCain has an odd way of showing that deep commitment.

    McTraitor’s pro-life stance is a media myth.

    1-During the 2000 Presidential primary, a reporter asked candidate McTraitor what he would do if his (then) 14-year old daughter came home pregnant? He stammered, stuttered, squirmed and then blurted out that “that would be her decision.”

    2-He has never even whispered about defunding Planned Butcherhood, in oh the many years he has been making his fortune in Congress.

    3-When a real “R” Senator tried to attach a defunding amendment to the must-pass highway funding bill this week and called for a roll-call vote on it, McTraitor ran and hid while McMcConnell lied it down.

    4-McTraitor has held happy photo ops with Muslim terrorist leaders, who then carried his blessings along with their obamao rifles and bazookas and money into Syria and Iraq, using them to wipe out entire villages of Christians and other minorities. What about their innocent lives?

    5-He has supported the homosexualization of the American military, imposing incredible danger on our real military men as they have to go in harms way. Is he concerned for their lives & well-being?

    6-He misled America on the POWS he left to be tortured and killed in the hands of the North Vietnamese Communists, with no regard for their lives or future – unimportant to him.

    7-We are still waiting for his condemnation of this invasion of illegal aliens who are killing and maiming innocent American citizens. Their lives are not important? We are the “crazies” and the illegals are the victims?

    8-and on and on and on. McTraitor is a creation of the leftist media, and “pro-life?” – I don’t think so.

    God bless America.

  2. Conservative Since Birth says:

    McNut signed the above bill to prohibit federal funding to Planned Parenthood as it’s his game of playing ‘conservative’ for the upcoming election. Obama will happily veto it. I’m out of adjectives, adverbs and nouns as to how I feel about the vile SOB. Watching the behavior of this man over the years has been despicable – especially when it comes to his undermining of real conservatives, known as “crazies.” What has he done for Arizona…aside from embarrassing us? He was even clueless about the Phoenix VA. He does not deserve reelection.

    Shameless propaganda:

    If only…

  3. Angee (@an66gnsangee) says:

    McShame has to go. He has no respect or consideration for his “Constituents.” When he had the gall to call the thousands of them “The Crazies” He lost the next election. We need someone who can represent the constituents with respect, and as an adult. Not as a spoiled child having a tantrum; because people support someone he doesn’t approve of? The man/child is ready to retire. The voters have every right to decide whom to vote for. He has no business behaving as though he “OWNS” Arizona’s voter’s minds! How dare he behave as uncivilized as that? Obviously his mind has retired from public discourse. Time for total retirement from any public office.

    this, like much the gop does is for show.

    Even if it passes it will be VETOED. and in the process it will give a couple democrats cover vote opportunities to look like they care about babies.

    McConnell, Boehner and the rnc/gop are only interested in show votes,(unless its passing a left wing or CoC supported items) they will do nothing with the power of the purse, the only real power the legislature possesses.

    they do nothing about anything except pay off wall street, chamber of commerce lobbyist:

    if you like your obamacare lobbyist bribe you can keep your bribe

    if you like your illegal alien lobbyist bribe you can keep your bribe

    if you like your obamatrade lobbyist bribe you can keep your bribe

    if you like your exim bank lobbyist bribe you can keep your bribe

    I could go on but we all know the realities and that’s a big part of why they fear trump.

  5. Frankly Speaking says:

    Liberal John McCain always tacks right during campaign season, then reverts back to his pro-amnesty RINO stance immediately after election day. Remember his “build the dang fence” commercial? That vacant promise was never fulfilled. In fact, within hours of being returned to DC, he and Jeff the Flake gathered together a couple of other bogus Republicans (Marco Rubio was one) and four Democrats to form the infamous Gang of Eight to promote amnesty. So much for his building of a fence. He’s a fraud and liar and always has been.

    John Mccain’s been in Washington for decades screwing over not only Arizonans, but American citizens throughout the United States. He has no core principles other than looking out for Numero Uno.

    Dr. Kelli Ward presents a conservative choice. Let’s not only vote right this time ourselves, but commit to bringing in others, friends, relatives, neighbors, co-workers, to vote for Kelli Ward. McCain will be nearly 90 if he is reelected and serves out this term. He’s senile now. Think how much worse it will be. We can do better and have the opportunity to make a meaningful change.

    Yesterday, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), embarked on the most important mission any self-described conservative representative can undertake as a member of this Congress.

    He filed a motion to vacate the chair, which commences the process through which a group of roughly 30 conservatives can remove John Boehner from the Speaker’s chair and restore some measure of deterrent against Obama’s impending transformational agenda during his last 18 months in office. In other words, Meadows pulled the trigger on the one thing that actually matters.

    According to House rules, any member can offer a motion to vacate the Speaker’s chair and force a de facto ‘vote of no confidence’ in the Speaker. Under normal circumstances, an individual member has no power to force a vote on any bill or resolution, but the motion to vacate is “privileged.” Meadows, however, filed his motion in a “non-privileged form,” which means the motion does not require immediate consideration. There is nothing Boehner can do to block the motion.

    The genius of this strategy is that there is no pressure on the conservative side like there was in January when they had to muster the 30 votes at a specific date – the day of the Speaker’s election. Meadows intends for this resolution to hang over Boehner’s head for as long or as short as needed to gather the votes. This will place enormous pressure on members headed into the August recess to declare their support or opposition for John Boehner.

    be sure to let AZ’s reps know you expect the to do all they can to remove Boehner from the speakership, and let them know what their lack of effort in this will cost them

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      I’ve let mine know twice. Somehow the ensconced politicians, the good ol’ boys, somehow manage to quell the uprisings. It’s happened several times with Boehner. He not only stays – but punishes the good guys.

  7. Braveheart says:

    I had to laugh when i read the mini header here. Expecting Robert Graham to call out McCain’s hypocrisy on this or anything else is a fool’s errand. Graham is McCain’s water carrier. They’re tied at the hip.

    eric holder, still harming americans

    Gun Used By Islamic Terrorist In Garland Attack Was A ‘Fast And Furious’ Gun
    Five years before he was shot to death in the failed terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, Nadir Soofi walked into a suburban Phoenix gun shop to buy a 9-millimeter pistol.

    At the time, Lone Wolf Trading Co. was known among gun smugglers for selling illegal firearms. And with Soofi’s history of misdemeanor drug and assault charges, there was a chance his purchase might raise red flags in the federal screening process.

    Inside the store, he fudged some facts on the form required of would-be gun buyers.

    What Soofi could not have known was that Lone Wolf was at the center of a federal sting operation known as Fast and Furious, targeting Mexican drug lords and traffickers. The idea of the secret program was to allow Lone Wolf to sell illegal weapons to criminals and straw purchasers, and track the guns back to large smuggling networks and drug cartels.

    If Pelosi and Reid were registered as Republicans in AZ, the Republican Establishment forces would be endorsing and supporting them as Robert Graham did for McCain at the State Convention. The Establishment forces have no core values, as might be expected, if they followed the Republican Platform.

    It would appear that the Platform itself is nothing but a fraud being foisted upon grassroots Republicans else the RINOs would not be supported by the State Party leaders throughout the country.

    Just think if Graham had said at the State Convention, ” I have not asked Senator McCain to speak to us because I can think of no one who ill serves the Party more than John McCain. His positions on marriage, abortion, and illegal immigration, just for starters, have made it appear that, indeed. there is no difference between Republicans and Democrats. From now on, I will use this podium to speak the absolute truth and ensure that Platform endorsing candidates and precinct committeemen get the support they deserve. The precinct committeemen are much more trustworthy than our office holders and henceforth this party will be a ground up directed party, and I will endeavor to represent the formerly disregarded voices of the PCs.”

    What a new day and era that statement could have ushered in. It might have gone national and reversed the downward spiral we are in. Instead, we were told to respect John McCain. The one good thing the State Convention may have accomplished was to destroy any future political ambitions Robert Graham was entertaining…. if the precinct committeemen have anything to say about it.

    Nixon’s southern strategy was to get social conservatives to vote republican party so that we would have the votes to keep business taxes low. The business of the republican party is business and keeping our taxes low. To get social conservative votes the republican party supports pro life pro gun anti gay, though anti immigration is starting to threaten low tax republicans. The chamber john mccain are not rinos as they believe in low taxes. There is a difference between needing your vote and believing the same thing as social conservatives. I can support banning abortion if necessary to keep business taxes low the same with gays or guns.
