Liberal KFYI talk show host shills for McCain

Fill-in radio host Barry Markson lacks crucial information, but keeps talking

Barry Markson revels in being a fill-in radio talk show host on KFYI News Talk radio. In his day job he toils as a defense lawyer who dabbles in a variety of specialties, among them “bad faith” cases. That’s his description, not ours.

It appears he was displaying a fair amount of ‘bad faith” himself Monday as he defended John McCain from what he considers an unreasonable assault by the majority of the 1,006 Republican elected Maricopa County precinct committeemen — carrying 989 proxies — attending the statutory meeting over the weekend. They voted to pass the Anybody BUT Sen. John McCain resolution by an overwhelming margin of 61 percent.

Markson, tweeting out this disparaging message, contends that since McCain wins every election, the PCs don’t represent the voters.

Actually there is no one who better represents the voters than precinct committeemen. They are elected by neighbors in their own precincts and are therefore closer to the pulse of the electorate than any city, county or statewide office holder. Committeemen are active and attuned to current political events. When was the last time your member of congress came to your door for a chat? U.S. Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake have a propensity for holding closed-door, invitation only town halls intended to exclude voters.

In 2014, McCain was censured by the state committeemen elected within their legislative districts. Over 1,200 assembled at the annual statutory meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party. McCain retaliated by colluding with an out-of-state Obama donor to purge the conservatives from their elected posts. Those who were ousted were surprised to find that the McCain replacements never bothered to show up at the monthly district meetings or engage in the heavy lifting political work required of the unpaid committeemen.

Markson’s assertion displays his lack of basic understanding of the role of the party activists. If he was paying attention he would have no question as to why the leftist McCain is reviled. The paradox exists because the majority of the public is disengaged until just prior to elections. In the remote corners of their consciousness is the bombardment of pro-McCain propaganda such as Barry Markson doles out. Voters are familiar with McCain’s name but not his deceptive actions and relentless push for amnesty for America’s illegal invaders. As examples, few are aware of McCain’s ties to the disreputable George Soros. How many know that he was poised to support “rock star” Hillary?

It is not without reason John McCain, who will be 80 by Election Day and is running for another SIX-YEAR term, comes in at number six on the list of most vulnerable U.S. Senators on the 2016 ballot. Conservative Review gives him a big fat “F” and Senate Conservatives Fund devotes a page to “Replace John McCain.”

Arizona Republican PCs do not stand alone, Barry Markson.

    I stopped listening to KFYI when another Barry (Barry Young) was doing the morning drive time show. He was also in the tank for McCain and had him on so frequently I was in a foul mood when I arrived at my office. Switching stations did wonders for my attitude.

  2. Seen It All says:

    The left wing media is all in for McCain. He’s tolerable because he‘s a Republicrat. Calling himself a “maverick” he has always been more aligned with Democrats than Republicans. When he first ran for the US House back in 1982, he was so tone deaf that he had to be persuaded to run as a Republican by the valley political leaders at the time. John Rhodes, the well respected House Minority Leader, was retiring and McCain ran for his East Valley CD 1 seat. Rhodes was the first Republican ever elected to the US House from Arizona. Harvard law grad Rhodes, renown for his ethical standards and Barry Goldwater were among the small group who met with Richard Nixon and persuaded him to resign. It took someone of Rhodes’ stature to get the difficult job done. John McCain never measured up to Rhodes, but he married a well connected beer heiress when he carpetbagged into Arizona, which kick started his career.

  3. Frankly Speaking says:

    Tom DeLay, the former Republican House Majority Leader explains his opposition to McCain to Fox News’ Neil Cavuto. This just touches the surface and doesn‘t include McCain’s recent and numerous transgressions against Republicans. .

  4. William Heuisler says:

    Soros may have been influential in sabotaging the Conservative vote in the 2012 election. Don’t believe me? Look up McCain Feingold.

    McCain followed orders from his multi-million-dollar-donor, George Soros, to help Liberal Democrats construct the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform Bill that exempts News Media, but regulates Conservative, pro-life and Tea Party political speech.

    How has McCain-Feingold silenced Conservatives? In 2011 and 2012 our Internal Revenue Service (IRS) delayed many of our conservative groups’ campaigns for the 2012 presidential election for months and years. In fact, as you read this, some Conservative groups are still not allowed 501(c)(4) fund-raising status due to alleged McCain-Feingold-prohibited-speech. (1) (2) (4) (5)

    McCain and George Soros? Look them up (3) & (5). McCain’s own Alexandria, Virginia, REFORM INSTITUTE was formed to (among other things) hide funding from Soros’ Left Wing OPEN SOCIETY INSTITUTE. Soros planned, incited and financially backed McCain-Feingold after expressing anger at many Republican election wins. He may have succeeded; IRS audits may have won the 2012 election for Obama, using McCain-Feingold to target Conservative groups with harassment, threats, unconstitutional, intimidating questions and long delays. Then the IRS obstructed justice for years – blamed “rogue agents” and destroyed evidence of systematic IRS voter-targeting in Chief Lois Lerner’s computer. (1) (2) (3) (4) (5)

    In May 2013, a Treasury Inspector General audit discovered how, before the 2012 election, IRS Agents targeted groups with Patriot and Tea Party in their names to enforce McCain-Feingold. Lois Lerner admitted the IRS “inappropriately targeted” conservatives. In February of 2014 Dave Camp, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, confirmed 100% of 501(c)(4) groups selected for IRS audit prior to the 2012 election were conservative! (1) (2) (4)

    Republicans must realize our own Government (the IRS) opposes Republican Conservatives and ignores Democrats. IRS Chief, Koskinen donated $100,000 to Democrats. The 150,000 IRS Agent Union donated to Democrats and endorsed Obama. IRS ex-Chief Lerner used many anti-GOP insults in emails and called Tea Party members “crazies”. Our Senate Finance Committee described the illegal acts of IRS thugs targeting Republican Tea Party groups with cover-words like “partisanship”, “incompetence” and “gross mismanagement”. But the weasel-words hide ugly crimes against Democracy. McCain, Feingold, Levin and Soros have corrupted our elections by urging militant and partisan Government Agents to silence Conservative voters by using Federal police-powers dictated by McCain-Feingold. And as late as 2013, Senator McCain and Senator Levin still complained the IRS was “not reining in political advocacy groups”. (1) (2) (4) (5)

    Republican, Marine, Cop, Investigator, author of “Casual Executions’ (about the deadly corruption in Arizona) . I am amazed how easily our right to vote and Freedom of Speech have been stolen through the treachery of John McCain and his friend, George Soros.

    When did a lack of information ever keep a liberal from spewing their anti-conservative bile?

  6. Truth or Consequences says:

    Rush is on KFYI. The only reason for listening to KFYI. Barry Young, Broomhead, Markson and others sent me fleeing the McCain propaganda years ago.

    Because my car radio had been previously tuned to Rush, I caught Markson introducing the MCRC censure. Markson spent more than half his program spewing disparaging remarks at the MCRC PCs and the three call-in McCain critics before hanging up on them.

    I called and was put on hold and had to listen to Markson’s love fest with his own voice. He needs to rent a motel room for himself. He couldn’t figure out why the PCs have such disdain for McCain, but McCain wins all his primary elections. Is Markson actually that stupid?

    Here is a quick lesson, Barry boy. The PCs are engaged activists who care enough to know the political process and to run for office. They know what the Constitution says and that the Republican Platform restates many of its articles. They do not fall for the left wing propaganda as easily as the disinterested Republican and Independent voters.

    The PCs believe they have the responsibility to expose those office holders who dishonor their pledge to protect and defend the Constitution and who follow the Democrat Party platform planks as opposed to the Republican platform.

    Markson, you are a stenciled, liberal, blockhead lawyer Maybe you should ask why Trump and Cruz are # 1&2 despite what the MSM and the Republican establishment do to destroy them. You are a fool and KFYI deserves you.

  7. CD 8 PC says:

    Barry Markson is confusing precinct committeemen with the low information voters who listen to his drivel. Big mistake, Barry. We live and breath politics and stay informed, which is why our neighbors contact us to discuss the issues and candidates. I still get calls from former neighbors who have moved across town asking my thoughts on upcoming elections

  8. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Barry Young and his cohort – the female Michelle something who was arrested and disappeared from the show – had McCain on any and every time he was around. McCain owned KFYI it seemed. I listen only to Rush Limbaugh not only because the station seems tired and old, but the dead air was maddening. There would be nothing coming through for minutes – or they’d have two ads talking at the same time over each other. Now there are real conservative Phoenix stations to enjoy.

    …I’m STILL LAUGHIN’ @ th’ markson-hotel-room comment!!! O.M.G. THAT’S FUNNY!!!

    A lawyer joke:

    A lawyer finds out he has a brain tumor, and it’s inoperable – in fact, it’s so large, they have to do a brain transplant.

    His doctor gives him a choice of available brains – there’s a jar of rocket scientist brains for $10 an ounce, a jar of regular scientist brains for $15 an ounce, and a jar of lawyer brains for the princely sum of $800 an ounce.

    The outraged lawyer says, “This is a ripoff – how come the lawyer brains are so damned expensive?”

    The doctor replies, “Do you know how many lawyers it takes to get an ounce of brains?”

    • Villanova says:

      Lawyer jokes are a hilarious staple among the hoi polloi, until the jokester needs intelligent legal representation to pull the jokester’s ass out of the fire he got himself into in the first place, usually through arrogance, ignorance or deceptive practices—maybe all three.
      Were you willing to go to three additional years of law school after college to defend our Constitutional rights? I’ll hazard a guess that’s not the case.

      • Saguaro Sam says:

        My additional years of schooling allows me the ability to write you an Rx to soothe your thin skin. Apply liberally. PRN.

      • Conservative Since Birth says:

        Then there’s the four prominent people who went through the three additional years of law school after college to defend our Constitutional rights and are now disbarred. Those four are:
        Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama and Michelle Robinson Obama.

        This is why there are lawyer jokes.

    Hey SRAZ & All! So the following JOKE was located just now on th’ internet:

    …bob DOLE Pineapplehead-LOSER?!?!?! Whatta’ MAROON!
