There’s been a good deal of grumbling over the fact that Dish Network no longer carries NewsMax in the Phoenix market. With the publication of this absurd editorial, the broken ties will be much easier to take.
Sounding as if the puff piece came directly from the McCain fact manipulation mill, the poorly written, fabrication-filled endorsement would be laughable if not so disappointing. The writer obviously is not an Arizona voter or active in the Arizona Republican Party whose elected Precinct Committeemen overwhelmingly voted a censure resolution against John McCain in an unprecedented action at a statewide meeting of delegates in 2014. He had previously been censured at the annual mandatory Maricopa County meeting — the nation’s fourth largest — by a vote of 1,150 in support with only 351 opposed. These numbers reflect more than “some critics” who “complain he’s not conservative enough,” as described in the piece.
As to Obama “despising” McCain, that’s hardly the case. McCain has been a frequent visitor to the Obama White House. They are both cunning enough to contrive public differences to insulate McCain during this tough election year.
We are told, presumably with a straight face, “conservative icons in the senate have stepped forward to endorse McCain.“ All three are junior senators from their respective states and have been in the U.S. Senate for a single year — each taking their oath of office in January 2015.
The editorial has all the makings of a good baloney sandwich. Responding to it all would be a pointless exercise in tedium. The facts omitted about Dr. Kelli Ward, McCain’s primary challenger speak volumes. Instead they were obscured by phony allegations of chemtrail obsessions and her votes to aid ISIS — while in the state senate. Any fifth grader paying attention knows that issues relating to national security are considered in Washington, D.C. not the state legislature. But facts don’t keep the far left, well oiled pro-McCain out-of-state PAC machine from making outrageous allegations.
Reading the editorial, you would not be aware that Dr. Kelli Ward is a family practice physician. Her husband, Dr. Michael Ward, an Air Force Colonel, who has served voluntary tours of duty in global hot spots, is the Arizona State Flight Surgeon. The couple has three children.
Watch (scroll down for video) Dr. Kelli Ward, listen to her message, check out her issues pages. Then decide if the 80-year-old McCain, who is arrogantly running for a sixth 6-year term is long past being the answer to problems. Remember the Veteran’s Administration scandal erupted in Phoenix, within a short distance from McCain’s penthouse — one of the 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, or 11 homes he and Cindy own. He’s not sure.
If you think a sovereign nation doesn’t need enforceable borders, and it’s wise to reward those who illegally invade the United States with the gift of citizenship in these perilous times, John McCain is your guy. If you enjoy being repeatedly lied to on such major issues, go with McCain. If you’re looking for an honest, vibrant and accomplished woman who knows how to get things done, Dr. Kelli Ward deserves your vote.
