McCain thug roughs up opponent’s mother

McOperatives employ deplorable intimidation tactics

John McCain is desperate. Campaigning for his sixth six-year term at age 80, he and his operatives will stop at nothing in order to keep the gravy train rolling. His contemptible reaction to being censured by Arizona elected Republican party leaders was an indication of the depths to which he will sink in order to maintain what he obviously regards as his rightful supremacy. Joined by Democrat Carl Levin, McCain attempted to rein in conservative political advocacy groups by having them targeted by IRS official Lois Lerner.

His dirty tricks know  no bounds. McCain’s accommodating team, who bask in what they consider the reflective glow of toadying for the senior politician don’t let common decency get in their way as they video stalk his photogenic challenger Dr. Kelli Ward at her own events. Their explicit desire is intimidation, eager to catch a verbal gaffe or unflattering expression that can be used in negative ads against her — taking the practice of what was previously known as opposition research to extremes.

Breitbart reports (video included) on McCain senior staffer Trevor Abarzua, 23, plowing into Ward’s 71-year-old mother, Dr. Lorraine Byrd, knocking her off balance as she entered the restaurant where her physician daughter was scheduled to address supporters at a “Meet and Greet‘ event on Monday. Dr. Byrd is a Lake Havasu City pediatrician.

Dr. Kelli Ward is quoted as saying. “People are sick and tired of intimidation tactics like these. Career politicians will do anything to win re-election so they can stay in Washington. It’s time to send a message that this sort of behavior is unacceptable. It’s time to Retire McCain.”

McCain’s staffers have been off the charts in the embarrassment department. Besides the brutish Trevor Abarzua, McCain’s fundraiser, Emily Orme Pitha, 34, was busted in April for having an operational meth lab, hard drugs, explosives, and counterfeit cash in the home she shared with her boyfriend and two young children. She had previously worked for former U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl.

 This survey by Public Policy Polling shows McCain and Ward tied, each with 41 percent of potential Republican primary voters. His Arizona approval rating is at a dismal 35 percent. 

Nationally, as reported in the Daily Caller, McCain is a bottom-dragger, sharing the title of “Least Popular Senator” with his doppelganger, Jeff Flake. He and his operatives read the polls, which is why they will stop at nothing to keep him from losing his last race.

    John McCain is worried and will stop at nothing to stay in office. If they worst happens and he’s reelected, the odds are good he’d try to run for another six year term at 86. He cares about no one or nothing but himself and is unfortunately enabled by the leftwing media and Faux News honchos who have him on at every opportunity and have even given his brainless daughter a seat on the morning show “Outnumbered.” The once reliable network is so “fair and balanced” it has more liberal paid panelists on than conservatives. I’ve stopped watching and will NEVER vote for McCain

    I read yesterday that McCain; Ayotte; Lindsey Graham; Flake, and their new mouthpiece Ben Sasse have decided to not attend the RNC. Mia Love has decided not to attend—what a disappointment she is.

    Sounds like something nasty will go on at the RNC. McCain’s absence always seems to indicate that he will be sending his foot soldiers to do the dirty work, so that his fingerprints will not be evident.

    And another gift that keeps on giving: Gabby Giffords in D.C. this week Pushing Gun Control. Tone deaf, apparently.

    Dubious distinction award to Tucson.
    In an article posted on 24/7 Wall St regarding the 50 worst cities, Tucson comes in at #37. It was noted that Tucson has a crime rate that is about double the national average.

    Many cities in California and Ohio made the list, which is based on using this criteria:

    “. . . To determine America’s 50 worst cities to live in, 24/7 Wall St. considered the roughly 550 cities that the U.S. Census Bureau reported as having populations of more than 65,000 residents in 2015. We considered only the lowest ranking city in each county. Data were collected in nine major categories: crime, demographics, economy, education, environment, health, housing, infrastructure, and leisure.. . .”

    (MIami was the #1 worst city for liveability, where poverty levels are very high. Wonder why?)

  3. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    McCain also benefits from having losers in the race. Jimmie Lee Deakin was the stooge that helped him win last time. This time there is Alex Meluskey and Van the Radio Man. Though they can’t win, they shamelessly siphon votes from Dr. Kelli Ward.

  4. William Heuisler says:

    Next time McCain writes to any of his “friends” for money make sure all of you take the time to call his office or email to ask him to explain why he doesn’t trust our soldier, Sailor, Marine sons, fathers, brothers, etc. with firearms.
    During a July 23, 2015 (a little over a year ago) interview on the Lars Larson Show, Senator Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) said that in June he “submitted an amendment” to the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) “to give military base commanders the authority to allow service members to carry personal firearms.” Heller said his amendment went nowhere because Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) “didn’t want the amendment as part of the bill and wouldn’t accept it.”

    And McCain spends millions on lousy ads attacking Kelli Ward for insufficiently supporting our Military while she was a State Senator.

  5. MacBeth says:

    McCain has a team of fresh faced kids working his events and doing his bidding. I’ve seen them with shocked looks on their faces as they approached state delegates and were turned down while asking for signatures on his nominating petitions at the Statutory Meeting. They have no historical knowledge of the dirty tricks McCain has pulled and the way he’s chummed with Obama and voted for many of Obama’s judicial and other high ranking administration nominees. Do they know enough to care that he’s pushed for amnesty for illegals for years, even partnering with Ted Kennedy?

    This is former House Majority leader Tom DeLay explaining his opposition to John McCain during his failed prudential race. It didn’t take him long to rattle off a lengthy list of negatives. Team McCain kids probably have never heard of any of the issues DeLay recited. They weren’t even a twinkle in their daddy’s eyes when he began his deceit-based career.

  6. Hunter says:

    I hope McCain loses the primary. If he does, then all of the Arizona politicians who endorsed him should be given a choice: Endorse Kelli Ward and actively help her raise money and get votes or face a strong, well-funded challenge in your next election whether it is a Republican primary, non-partisan, or internal party election.

    It’s imperative that the McCain web of influence be broken quickly if he is defeated in order to get the Republican Party back to its conservative roots.

    If McCain wins the primary, then those who supported McCain should still be actively opposed as they are now, but there won’t be as much political power and money available to do that effectively.

    Bill Clinton, Loretta Lynch Meet On Airplane [VIDEO] | The Daily Caller

    Even the appearance of impropriety is a breach of judicial ethics.
    Nothing can justify this secret meeting.

    • Villanova says:

      If this odd meeting isn’t a major conflict of interest for US AG Loretta Lynch, who should be in charge of prosecuting Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal that jeopardized national security, then what is? Does anyone need more proof that Democrats are indeed unprincipled, arrogant and corrupt?

      • Casper says:

        Maybe the brief tarmac episode wasn’t some nefarious legal scheming at all, but just a brief Lewinsky style cigar share between friends.

    • Saguaro Sam says:

      Lynch was at the Phoenix police academy, praising the department’s mental health intervention unit.

      Yeah, let’s go the extra air-mile to make sure that the officers on the beat better know that they are expected to be thoughtful of the perps.

      So, as usual with the PPD, no one caring about the huge increase in crime in the Maryvale precinct.

      Phoenix in June, the perfect place for miscreants like L&C to meet. After all, we have no real media here on the job.

      Very surprised that FOX 10 Phoenix even had the guts to report it.

      Loretta Lynch uses a government airplane to fly to Phoenix.

      Obama is in Canada with his amigos, the prez of Mexico and the golden boy PM of Canada.

      Michelle and her gal pals on whirlwind tour of African nations and Spain to give away One Hundred Million Dollars of US taxpayer dollars to give foreigners an education.

      • Clementine says:

        The Obama family, Michelle’s mother who lives in the White House included, have taken the American taxpayers for all they can squeeze out of us. They’ve become world wide jet setters on the backs of hardworking and many underemployed (thanks to Barack Obama’s policies) American citizens.
        He keeps importing uneducated foreigners from the Mideast, Africa, Central America and Mexico for us to provide with benefits and sustenance. We need a president who puts the USA first. Our obvious choice is Donald Trump. He was not my first choice, but he’s going to get my vote and I’m encouraging others to do the same. We are at a crossroads and Hillary is the path to disaster.

    MCCAIN: “If you believed that Donald Trump was going to be the nominee and you believed that Bernie Sanders was going to come close, please raise your hand. If you just raised your hand, please don’t drive an automobile here in the metropolitan area. (Laughter)You are a danger to yourself and others, you’re crazy.”
