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.
