A trip down memory lane with John McCain

Many astute conservatives will recall the controversy surrounding John McCain and his meetings with Syrian “rebels” covered by Breitbart News in this Sept. 18, 2014 report by Matthew Boyle titled, “Alleged ISIS Photo Controversy Engulfs Sen. John McCain.”

Take a moment to reacquaint yourself with the issue and the denials put out by Team McCain operatives, when this made the news.

Seeing Red AZ ran McCain Irony, (Aug. 27, 2014) which included a now removed link to the GOP Daily Dose showing McCain meeting with the head of ISIS on a secret trip to Syria. During the meeting McCain was reported to have promised the “revolutionaries” weapons, training, and funding.  He referred to them as “freedom fighters.”

Denials by John McCain are worthless. Here he is in a 2008 CBS News clip speaking with reporters in Jordan and exhibiting abysmal ignorance of who the extremists and terrorists even are. He was immediately corrected by far more knowledgeable then-Sen. Joseph Lieberman while an obviously embarrassed Lindsey Graham hung his head.

And although Mitt Romney is inexplicably appearing in Mesa Dec. 12, supporting  the very senior senator’s effort for yet another 6-year term after over 3 decades in D.C., McCain, who will be 80 by Election Day, has exhibited difficulty even remembering who Romney is. Watch this 30-second video as McCain confuses Mitt Romney with Barack Obama during the 2012 presidential campaign. 

It’s not a surprise that the toxic and censured senator, is Number Six on Roll Call’s roster of the 10 most vulnerable U.S. Senators.

McCain has been in D.C. doing his dirty work (video) since 1982. Seeing Red AZ supports Dr. Kelli Ward in the 2016 senate race.  Check out her credentials and issues pages and see why.

    Remember McCAIN viciously attacked Trent Franks and Michelle Bachmann when they sounded the alarm that the Muslim Brotherhood is in top levels of our Govt. McCain praised the Arab Spring as well. He is a fool and yes a traitor!

    McCain originally wanted to run for the old CD1 seat as a Democrat. He had to be talked out of that bit of ‘wisdom’ by members of the influential “Phoenix 40,” which then wielded control from its formation in the 1970’s. They knew that trying to replace nationally and locally respected conservative U.S. Rep. John Rhodes with a Democrat would never fly. At the time McCain was an attractive candidate as a returning Vietnam war POW, even though he had just carpetbagged his way into Arizona after his very advantageous marriage to Cindy Lou Hensley.

    Although I’ve seen that video of McCain, Lieberman and Graham before, it still has the ability to shock. McCain is a dunce, posing as a knowledgeable US Senator. Arizonans should be ashamed for repeatedly sending him back to represent them. He actually is incapable of representing anyone. We’ve visited your beautiful state for years and have yet to meet anyone who likes him. How does he get reelected?

      My family and I share none of the blame for keeping John McCain in the senate. None of us have voted for McCain for years, except against Obama, when we saw him as the lesser of two evils.

    DEMOCRATS are enamored with McCain. Republicans? Not so much.

  5. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Watching “Politics Unplugged” Sunday night, the two guys on at the end of the show (one a “Republican” (Marcus Del ‘Artino) – the other an “Independent” must be McBootLickers as they saw no one able to beat McCain in 2016. They absolutely gave no one else a chance. I’m trying to show friends that he’s not only an ineffective old man, but a dangerous one. Isn’t it interesting how the ensconced Republican party operatives in AZ defend McNasty to the death.

    BREAKING! Video appeal from legendary ISIS commander to John McCain ‏

    • Seen It All says:

      Your instincts regarding lobbyist Marcus Dell’Artino are right on the money. He was the director fro the SW region for McCain’s failed presidential campaign and has the stench of the McEstablishment all over him.

      • Conservative Since Birth says:

        On another ‘Politics Unplugged’ show, Marcus Dell’Artino was singing the praises of Kyrsten Sinema. He said she’s the smartest politician out there – something to that effect. These McEstablishment “Republicans” sure go off the rails. They’re all crazy – just like McCain. I’m thankful the elected Republicans at the State level show some sanity.

  6. State Delegate says:

    John McCain travels with Lindsey Grahamnesty to be brought up to speed and given talking points. McCain has no business running again. He’s exhibited signs of dementia for quite some time and is loathed by most Republicans who know all too well how he has repeatedly conspired with the left against them. He supports open primaries because he knows he can’t win without crossover votes. We should never forget that McCain’s slippery clone Jeff Flake is cut from the same double crossing cloth.

  7. Rob Haney says:

    There has been no greater force of political evil in this country than John McCain. He is the fulfillment of Lincoln’s warning that if we are to be destroyed, it will be from within. He was an advocate for doing away with American sovereignty long before we heard it from Obama. He is the “Manchurian Candidate.” He likes to call himself “The Straight Talk Express.” Of course, we know him better as “The Forked Tongue Express.”

    He has always been an advocate for open borders and even now, after the latest terror attack in the U.S., he still is a champion for bringing in all the Syrian Islamists we can find. Why does the Republican Establishment (Ducey, Brewer, Flake, Kyl, State Chairman Graham, etc endorse his reelection?

    They certainly do not deserve to be called patriots. You no longer need to wonder why Robert Graham is losing so many Republicans to the Independent voter roles, nor why Trump is riding so high. The base of the Party is fed up with all of them.

    Remember how McCain collected endorsements from all the office holders last go-around. Watch for their endorsements this time, then cross them off your “vote for” list.

    If John McCain and Angela Merkel had a love child, it would be Barack Obama.

    (thanks for keeping US safe, McAmnesty. take a look at what happened this week in Brownsville, Texas. beyond frightening.
    is McCain still calling them “God’s children”?))
