Wednesday evening: The PC numbers in challenged districts are finally posted. Click on link in the first paragraph and you‘ll get a free ride.
According to reports, today is the day the results for the precinct committeeman races will finally be available and posted at the Maricopa County Recorder‘s website. Given that election day was over a week ago and early ballots were being tabulated over the past month, the excessive wait makes little sense.
As we noted previously, these races take on greater significance given the high level, behind the scenes machinations to remove elected conservatives— many longtime PCs — from within the precincts. The unpaid, grassroots workers of the Republican Party are once again having an elbow thrust in their gut, as the GOPe (establishment) is working with Team McCain to oust McCain disloyalists — real or imagined — from the party ranks. Concerted efforts include purposely overfilling the allotted number of committeemen allowed in each precinct and then either mailing out or hand delivering cards to households listing names comprising a “conservative slate.” The maneuver is intended to aid the establishment by knocking actual conservatives off the roster. The fact that these are loyal Republican workers is of no consequence when it comes to the down in the weeds, devious schemes few would expect busy U.S. Senators to engage in.
This is not a new phenomenon. Former Sen. Jon Kyl engaged in these underhanded tactics in 2012. As we pointed out at that time, the precinct committeemen elections are crucial since it is the elected precinct committeemen who elect the intra-party leadership. Having conservatives in these posts hinders the efforts to have malleable stooges voted in to do the biding of the Republicrat honchos, who invariably push for amnesty immediately after they are reelected — though they campaign as committed agents of border security.
Following McCain’s censure by elected state committeemen at the 2014 annual Statutory Meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party, he undertook a mission to replace conservatives. His deceptive trickery with out-of-state Obama donors made the national news. Read about his tyrannical tactics in Front Page mag, Breitbart, and POLITICO.
McCain’s retaliatory actions against conservatives went even further, as he and liberal Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich) urged IRS’s Lois Lerner’s involvement in a scheme to target conservatives for additional scrutiny from the tax agency.
For memory refreshers, this was Kyl’s deceptive campaign ad before the votes were tabulated and he joined McCain in another amnesty deception. Here is McCain’s infamous border walk ad, where he urged building the danged fence. Jeff Flake also lied as he conveniently tacked right on the border in a tight race. The open border newspaper went ballistic, calling his change of heart on legalizing millions of illegal aliens “jarring.” He bore the newspaper’s wrath by being called a “politician” no longer a “statesman.’
The editorial board needn’t have worried. He reverted to his amnesty stance the very next day as he colluded with his mentor McCain and formed the disreputable Gang of Eight with liberal senators Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin and others.
Check here later today to see if you’ve been McPurged. No specific time was given for the release of the vote totals.
