AZ GOP chair Robert Graham’s McMyopia

Make no mistake.  We are no fans of either Democrat U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (CD-1) or Barack Obama. However, the odd email sent out Friday by AZ GOP chairman Robert Graham, has left numerous conservatives scratching their heads in bewilderment.

Graham chastises both Kirkpatrick and Obama for not supporting the SAFE Act, which he cagily calls “a program to preserve national security by pausing the Syrian refugee program until additional background investigations of the refugees are in place.”

Well and good.

But where are the equally harsh words for Arizona’s other congressional liberals who voted in exactly the same matter as Ann Kirkpatrick?  

Why have leftists U.S. Reps. Raul Grijalva (CD-5) and Ruben Gallego (CD-7) slipped the surly bonds of Graham’s condemnation? 

The answer is all too simple. U.S. Sen. John McCain, who will be 80 by Election Day, is running for yet another 6-year term after over three decades in office. Throughout those years his record on myriad issues has been interchangeable with the Democrats, with whom he has often partnered against Republicans.

That’s why he was publicly censured by elected precinct committeemen at the January 2014 mandatory meeting of the Maricopa County Republican Committee by a vote of 1,150 to 351. Two weeks later the annual Statutory Meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party also censured the longtime politician for a litany of grievances, including a “record [which] has been disastrous and harmful to Arizona and the United States.” 

Graham is suffering from a severe case of McMyopia, a refusal to see the same shameful behavior in the lying, “Open Borders” attitude of Arizona’s senior senator as evidenced by three of Arizona’s four congressional Democrats.

This was SRAZ’s take on the same issue as it relates to (AZ CD-9) U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema’s vote with the GOP and her reasons for doing so.

Robert Graham, fantasizing McCain is not facing primary challengers goes directly at Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick who will be running in the General Election. McCain has primary opposition, acknowledged by Breitbart though ignored by Graham, ever eager to carry McCain’s distasteful water. As we recently noted, Roll Call is not as constrained as Graham. It lists John McCain number six on the roster of the ten most vulnerable U.S. Senators on the 2016 ballot.

    The AZ GOP establishment is frightened which is why Robert Graham is sending out this foolish email. It was forwarded to me and I laughed out loud when I read it. John McAwful is their bread and butter. My wife and I will be voting for Dr. Kelli Ward. If she doesn’t win the primary, my vote will go to Ann Kirkpatrick. I’m a lifelong conservative Republican, even belonged to TARs in high school before I could vote and started a Young Republican chapter in my hometown while in college. I’ve been an elected precinct committeeman and state committeeman for years, until the McCain purge of conservatives began following his censures. I was replaced by one of his Vietnamese fans, who has NEVER shown up at a district meeting.

      It’s a shame that Robert Graham was able to pull the wool over the eyes of state delegates to be reelected, but he’s learned well from his tutor John McCain. He waited until the ballots were all placed in the counting machines but the totals not yet announced when he brought McCain, Flake and the Vietnam flag waving Vietnamese in the back way after telling us all to clear the auditorium at the last state meeting. McCain and Flake were booed and Graham should have been. My wife and I walked out on them and went out to a favorite restaurant. We also have been displaced by McCain operatives, after many years working our butts off as dedicated Republican PCs. We are now registered Independents. Thank you, Robert Graham, for giving us some free time and extra money for travel and entertainment.We sure as hell won’t be giving either to limp wristed RINOs.

    Former PC, your mention of the Vietnamese, PC prompted me to remind everyone who reads “Seeing Red AZ” that we have the numbers to run McCain out of the Senate next September and elect a Republican replacement. There are a half million Republican Primary Voters in AZ. We must stop this talk of either McCain or a Democrat. When my friend JD ran he was somehow convinced that McCain was inevitable. He forgot we own this state and we can elect whoever we Damn please.
    All we must do is talk to our fellow Republicans over the Holidays. Read below and remind a couple dozen of your friends.

    McCain’s Connections (a reminder)
    Why did we elect McCain? He voted to fund Obamacare, to bail out Wall Street and for a $600 billion tax hike. His McCain-Kennedy and Gang of 8 legalized illegals. His Soros-funded McCain-Feingold silenced Pro-life and Tea Party groups – a Treasury audit found the IRS had targeted Patriot and Tea Party groups in the 2012 Presidential Election. Lois Lerner admitted her IRS targeted conservatives, but John McCain said the IRS was “not reining in political advocacy groups” enough. (5) (9) (10)

    Dirty money and corrupt connections elected McCain. He came to Arizona (AZ) in 1981 to run for Congress – helped by AZ Republic Publisher Duke Tully and $553,000 dollars from United Liquors. United Liquors is AZ’s beer-liquor monopoly and employed McCain’s father-in-law, James Hensley. But United Liquors has been owned by Kemper Marley since 1940. Millionaire developer, owner of Transamerica Wire Service, Marley is a protégé of mob-connected Sam Bronfman. So McCain’s main money-connection was really Kemper Marley. Republic Publisher, Duke Tully, bragged he was a decorated pilot in Vietnam, but Tully was a Stolen Valor fraud. Ex-Pentagon lobbyist, McCain knew the truth and became Duke’s buddy. Duke became Meghan McCain’s Godfather. Tully ordered editorials endorsing newcomer McCain who won the 1982 Republican primary with fake newspaper endorsements and a half million dollars from mob-connected Kemper Marley.

    Charles Keating stole $1.1 Billion from elderly Arizonans with a Lincoln Savings real estate fraud. He also gave $112,000 to Senator McCain so McCain would delay Federal Home Loan investigators. McCain also invested $359,000 in Keating’s Fountain Square Mall (sold in 1998 for 15 million). After the Keating Five scandal broke Keating was jailed. McCain was scolded for “poor judgment.” (1) (11)

    Ironically, in 1987 McCain was the first Republican to accuse new Republican Governor Mecham of corruption. This lie gave our State House to Democrat Rose Mofford and then to another big McCain campaign donor, Fife Symington. Symington was convicted of seven felonies for defrauding lenders and filing false financial statements for his real estate businesses in the 1980s and early 90s. (4) (8)

    Republican, Marine, cop and Investigator, my cop and reporter friends remind me how McCain’s biggest donor paid to kill a reporter. AZ Republic reporter Don Bolles’ dying words, “Mafia, Emprise, Adamson”, directly implicated race track (Emprise, Mafia) wire service activities of Kemper Marley. But no official investigated or interviewed Kemper Marley, the man who bought a reporter’s death, and paid a half million dollars to John McCain five years later. My fact-based book, “Casual Executions: assassinations in Arizona,” shows how justice was blinded when newspapers ignored murder, fraud, bribery and politicians taking mobbed-up millionaires’ money.

    • State Delegate says:

      I’m proud to say I worked on JD’s campaign. He did not think McCain was inevitable, or he would not have run. He was vastly outspend and maliciously defamed in McCain’s ads. You definitely got that part of your lengthy comment wrong! JD was previously my congressman and I’ve never been better served.

      • Conservative Since Birth says:

        I sent JD the most money I’ve ever spent for a political campaign in the hopes we could do away with McLiar once and for all. He ran his heart out. A good guy.

      • William Heuisler says:

        My “lengthy” comment reflected reality. McCain’s money was overwhelming because JD was too much a gentleman to attack McCain’s record or history. Most Arizonan Primary voters saw no reason to get rid of McCain – particularly after the SOB smeared JD and JD did not have sufficient money to respond.
        BTW send your email to and I will send you more “lengthy” monthly reports (low-budget Truth campaign against McCain) you can distribute to fellow Conservatives.

    • LEO IN TSN says:

      JD Hayworth was my friend, and I worked extensively on his campaign. He NEVER thought McTraitor was “inevitable.”

      McTraitor bought his victory with dark money from the RNC super pacs and consultants, from La Raza bundled money and from the Mexifornia dimocrat super pacs that still support him. These are the same usual suspects who will be trying to destroy Sen. Dr. Kelli Ward to save McTraitor. Hmmmmm, wonder who might be funding the campaigns of the new out-from-under-a-rock primary candidates and encouraging & supporting a sad old ego who is blissfully oblivious?

      JD Hayworth ran to win, just like Kelli Ward is running now. The two actually have a lot in common.

      God bless America.

    Someone needs to look into the relationship between McAmnesty and George Soros.

    There have been numerous photos of the two of them together.

    The situation in Europe is highly orchestrated and well-funded.
    (When the Cubans fled Castro, they did not arrive on huge container ships, or wearing life jackets, or have I-phones, or know exactly where to go).

    Many are now saying that the plunder occurring all across Europe is a Soros operation. Interesting that Belgium seems to be the new capital of Muslim extremists in Europe and is also the hdqtrs of NATO.

  4. SuzanneC says:

    I have been called and called by several people asking if McCain wins the primary do I know anybody who will run as a Libertarian to take him out. They figure with Van and Alex mucking up the race McCain is going to walk right back in so to defeat him, bring is a Libertarian ad let the Democrat take over his seat for 6 years.

  5. Barbara Espinosa says:

    Very good article and right on the money.The problems we have today with immigration and the debt is in direct result of politicians who have been office way to long.
