John McCain “directly responsible” for rise of ISIS

Not a “maverick” riding the “fork-tongued express,” Dr. Kelli Ward refreshingly speaks the truth

Former Arizona State Senator Dr. Kelli Ward released this statement regarding John McCain’s assertion that the president was “directly responsible” for the mass shooting at an Orlando LGBT nightclub, which he immediately backtracked with a statement that he misspoke,” saying that he “did not mean to imply that Barack Obama was personally responsible.

This is Dr. Kelli Ward’s response:

As we got used to during his 2008 presidential campaign, John McCain has once again thrown a punch at Barack Obama and immediately apologized for it, bowing to lick the boots of the political correctness police — not surprising for the ultimate establishment insider.

I, however, am not afraid to place the blame right where it belongs: John McCain is “directly responsible” for the rise of ISIS. Without his dangerously distracted foreign policy, we would not have this ruthless Islamic extremist organization that crucifies children, systematically rapes women, oppresses Christians, and throws homosexuals off rooftops.

Libya and Iraq would not be the “Harvard of terrorism” they are now if it were not for his knee-jerk, trigger-happy foreign policy of promiscuously arming the supposedly moderate militants he says he is “intimate with” and overthrowing stable, albeit unsavory regimes. He even wants to stay in Iraq for 100 years and joked about risking military lives to “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.” Even George W. Bush and Tony Blair have admitted that the 2003 invasion of Iraq created a vacuum which allowed jihadist ideologies to flourish. Our open border has given those emboldened elements access to our country and our citizens. McCain has been complicit in all of it.

The reason John is currently losing a reliably red state to a rubber stamp Obama Democrat is because he is dangerously distracted with his “Invade the World, Invite the World” agenda. John has proposed bombing, invading, or attacking at least thirteen countries in recent years, and in addition to his support for open borders and amnesty, he also wants to dump thousands of unvetted refugees into our streets and give them welfare to boot.

John McCain claims that I voted against funding the troops and that I have a weak record on national security. Any 5th grader understands that state legislators don’t vote on national security legislation.

As a military wife of a husband who has been deployed overseas, I will support military engagement only as a last resort, only when Constitutionally approved by Congress, and only when there is a clear strategy for victory, not endless occupations and expensive nation-building. Yes, John McCain is “directly responsible” for the rise of ISIS.

U.S. Senate terms are six years long. At 80, John McCain, who rates an “F” score from Conservative Review for his decades long collusion with the most liberal of Democrats, is running for yet another term, arrogantly declaring he has more work to do. It’s time for a change. The Senate Conservatives Fund has devoted a web page to “Retire John McCain,” declaring “Thirty years in the U.S. Senate is enough. It’s time to elect a true conservative in Arizona who will support and defend the Constitution.”

The group adds, “There are few Republicans who have betrayed our conservative principles more than John McCain. He wrote the McCain-Kennedy and “Gang of Eight” immigration bills that offered amnesty to millions of illegal aliens! He voted for the Wall Street bailout, to fund the implementation of Obamacare, for the $600 billion “fiscal cliff” tax hike, and to raise the debt limit 14 different times! John McCain lost his way a long time ago and it’s time to replace him with a strong conservative leader who will support and defend the Constitution.”

Seeing Red AZ supports Dr. Kelli Ward, a conservative two-term state senator and physician.  John McCain is well-funded by inside-the-beltway, D.C. lobbyists and deceptive PACs. Kelli Ward needs our help to remain competitive as she is assaulted by vicious televised ads and mailers paid for by McCain’s predominantly out-of-state surrogates. Give what you can. This senate primary election is the most important 2016 race in the state.

    HEAR! HEAR! Kelli Ward and Seeing Red.

    Saw yet another attack ad on Kelli Ward this morning on TV and every time I see one I think this very same thing:

    “John McCain claims that I voted against funding the troops and that I have a weak record on national security. Any 5th grader understands that state legislators don’t vote on national security legislation.”

    Is John McCain too stupid to realize this or is he playing to the low-information voters out there.

    Kelli Ward’s above response is excellent, smart and direct.

  3. Kathy says:

    Go Girl Dr. Kelli Ward!!!!!!!!!!!!! McCain’s head is exploding right now – gotta love it!!!!!!

  4. jakesez says:

    I am carrying a copy of McCain’s voting record which I copied from Seeing Red and will give it out as I walk my area. This older than me guy has to go.

    86 the 80 year old

  5. VINOAZ says:

    McScum and his owners will stop at nothing or stoop too low to keep that bum in office. He has to go. He bears responsibility for open borders, invasion by hordes of illegals and legals, and the worst VA in America. He is a disgrace and an insult to AZ and all things decent. He should be a Democrat, they are ethically and morally bankrupt, and Johnnie would fit right in. Recently heard a talk show host ask what in the heck is wrong with AZ voters.

    AZ’s Kelli Ward Takes on John McCain Over Loretta Lynch

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/03/13/exclusive-azs-kelli-ward-if-flake-or-graham-votes-for-loretta-lynch-john-mccain-owns-it-personally/

    Here’s an old article showing that Kelli Ward was right! McCain didn’t vote for Lynch, but his acolytes did, including Flake. Lynch has been horrific – she overruled James Comey of the FBI the other day. She’s Obama in a dress. Kelli Ward has the right intuition on politics.

  7. Former GOP PC says:

    SRAZ is right on pointing out that the entrenched McCain has long been at the DC lobbyist’s trough. It’s a never ending flow of money that enabled him to outspend U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth approximately 10 to 1, with McCain spending in the neighborhood of $30 MILLION to repurchase the Arizona Senate seat.
    This fact makes it imperative that conservatives send Dr. Kelli Ward whatever contributions they can. Wouldn’t you love seeing McCain ousted the way he contrived to get rid of conservative elected precinct committeemen after he was censured by state delegates? My wife and I devoted years of unpaid dedication to the Arizona Republican Party and this was the thanks we got. AZ GOP Chairman Robert Graham is tied at the hip with McCain. They both need to be replaced.

    PAUL RYAN Vows to Stop TRUMP’S Muslim Ban: “We’ll Sue Him!” (VIDEO)
    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/06/paul-ryan-vows-stop-trumps-muslim-ban-well-sue/

    is ward for the muslim ban?

    does she back Trump?

    she will not say deport illegals.

    ward may be slightly better than mccain because she hasnt been a politician long enough, but she IS a politician who will not take positions that do not reflect the establishments goals.

    vote for her all you want but dont be fooled.

    An Unlikely Savior Emerges to Help Endangered Republicans: George W. Bush – The New York Times

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/17/us/politics/george-w-bush-gop-fundraising.html?_r=1

    GWBush will campaign for McCain and Kelly Ayotte. He doesn’t like Trump’s “message” and won’t be going to the convention, nor will his father or Jeb. Now they know how we felt when the establishment went full bore for the weaklings John McCain and Mitt Romney – and expected them to beat a Hillary or Obama after the pathetic mess George W left.

    breitbart.com calling him “The Saboteur”
    Speaker of the House that Jack Built, Paul Ryan, threatening to sue Trump (should he become president) if Trump dares to overstep his boundaries.

    Hah! Where has Ryan and the GOP Congress been for 7.5 years, as Obama, daily, wipes his skinny behind on our founding documents?

    And now, OBAMA RUINS FATHERS DAY.
    Obama and the entourage will spend the next few days visiting Yosemite National Park (CA) and Carlsbad Caverns (New Mexico).
    Severe restrictions implemented for vacationing Americans, many of whom secured reservations and campsites a long time ago.
    Shouldn’t surprise anyone that trips to our national parks are usually made by white, middle class Americans.

    Maybe the Obamas will hang around Carlsbad Caverns until sunset, at which time tens of thousands of bats emerge from the entrance to the cave to take their nocturnal flight.
    He is, after all, bat-sh*t crazy.

    The continuation of the Ruin Nation Tour rolls on.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      I read where the White House ‘told’ people to get in the park (Yosemite) before 8 A.M. or they’d have to wait until 6 P.M. to get in. All this intrusion on an American Father’s Day weekend, when people have had to get reservations far in advance. I didn’t think the Obama’s celebrated American holidays – they don’t exchange gifts for Christmas or birthdays. They look like lowlifes intruding on hardworking American’s time off. But they had to squeeze it in as the female Obama’s and their friends and relatives are going off to Spain soon.

  11. Hunter says:

    The 2003 invasion of Iraq was a sensible thing to do. They were working on chemical and nuclear weapons, supported terrorists, and were a long term threat to America and our allies.

    As for there being no chemical weapons, some people I know who were in Iraq during the war told me that there were chemical weapon attack alerts and positive tests for chemical weapons. Most of the weapons may have been moved or hidden, but there were definitely some there that US troops were exposed to.

    The way the occupation was handled could have been improved during the Bush administration, but Iraq was pacified and under control by the end of the Bush presidency. A brutal dictator with dangerous weapons was neutralized. The Middle East was more stable.

    Even Libya was chastened into openly abandoning their nuclear weapons research and throttled back support of terrorists.

    The problems came when Obama pulled US troops out of Iraq. That created a power vacuum in Iraq. US troops deployed for decades in countries where we fought have kept the peace and prevented enemies of freedom from undermining them without US troops being involved in major combat operations. Also, toppling the Libyan government after it became “tame” was destabilizing and stupid. Supporting the Muslim Brotherhood take over of Egypt was also destabilizing and stupid.

    I support Kelli Ward for US Senate, but many people, including her and Trump, are forgetting that there were valid reasons to invade Iraq. The primary fault for the problems in the Middle East lies with Obama. McCain has had some foolish ideas (we all know he’s not a bright guy), but his responsibility as a US Senator is minor compared to Obama’s.

    McCain DOES bear a significant responsibility, though, by running a lousy presidential campaign which gave the presidency to Obama. The only consolation is that, as bad as Obama is, McCain might actually have been worse for the country had he been elected. It seems like the only reason he wanted the GOP nomination is so he could throw the election to Obama and use the money he raised for the presidential campaign in his future Senate campaigns.

    The gop of paul ryan, robert graham and john mccain:

    30 GOP Republicans Back Obama’s Recruitment of Illegals for Shrinking US Military
    Members of Ryan’s leadership team voted with the Democrats to outsource US military slots to illegals and to foreigners: Chairman of House Energy and Commerce Committee Rep. Fred Upton (R.-Mich.) and Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R.-Utah), as well as Rep. Jeff Denham (R.-Calif.). Denham is a member of Ryan’s House Steering Committee.

    Here’s a roll call list of legislators’ votes.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      This is outrageous. Paul Ryan is the RINO Obama. He gets away with crazy things with nary a peep from so-called conservatives.
      How many of our betters have served in the military. Ryan and the rest of these soft Americans are driving this country into an ash heap.

      I understand there are record crowds for Trump right now in Houston.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      Saw this comment elsewhere on this subject and agreed 100%:

      Our government is now openly siding with fraudulently documented foreigners against the citizens and the rule of law.

  13. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    God bless Kelli Ward for speaking the truth. A vote for any of the other McCain enabling candidates ensures the miserable old phony’s reelection. This is how he has repeatedly gotten reelected although he has worked and voted with democrats for decades.
