Dr. Kelli Ward criticized for prayers, expressing concerns

Valid concerns should be addressed

In the news section of her website, Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate,  senate candidate Kelli Ward is taking heat from commenters for her post, My Prayers to John McCain, Such is the political world today.

 Kelli Ward is a physician and is addressing John McCain’s serious medical condition. His own doctors at Mayo Clinic have described his malignant brain tumor as aggressive and resistant to treatment. Sen. McCain evidenced his inabilities during his recent questioning of former FBI Director James Comey, in what was described in the media as “bizarre and incoherent.” We now know the reason.

Dr. Ward is no longer running against the nearly 81-year-old John McCain, who was reelected to another six-year-term in 2016 but is challenging virulent Trump opponent Jeff Flake. She gains no foothold by suggesting McCain not attempt to subject himself to the rigors of the U.S. Senate and concentrate on his treatment and enjoy time with his family. He will be undergoing a tough treatment regime, and should be with his loved ones. There is nothing untoward about suggesting he step aside, saying, “When the time comes that Senator McCain can no longer perform his duties in the Senate at full capacity, he owes it to the people of Arizona to step aside.”

That is reality for both Sen. McCain, the people of Arizona and the nation as evidenced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell putting the critical vote on health care reform on ice due to McCain’s absence, where every vote was needed to pass and McCain was recovering from brain surgery.

    For what it’s worth, I think Dr. Kelli Ward makes a mistake in having a comment section under her news releases. Her site has obviously been taken over by liberals and Flake supporting Republicrats. She does herself and those of us who support her candidacy, no favors. There is no reason to have a comment section in that area, but if that’s unavoidable, it should be monitored more closely..Why allow the enemy camp to dominate?

    Kelli Ward is the Arizona’s best choice!!

    I just read the negative comments. The criticism wasn’t just. She did nothing that should upset anyone. The Left despises Republicans, especially conservatives and they’re out there in cyber space with nothing better to do than attack. I am so sick of those people. Most times, I don’t bother to give my opinion – it’s not worth the blowback. I just go to the polls and vote.

    Just to be clear: The day after McCain’s definite diagnosis was released to the media, Johnny got down and dirty by tweeting vicious crap about Trump. Because he knew full well that Trump could not respond to a sick man. And he is sick.

    It’s A-OK to hide behind a terminal illness and send out hideous tweets for all to see.

    But for a Christian person to post on her own website a heartfelt message of hope and encouragement, well, that’s just outrageous and cannot be tolerated.

    Who better to offer such a message than a physician who understands full well that McCain has been dealt a losing hand in this matter of his health.

    Meanwhile, did you hear about this?
    A 34 year old journalist, working on the editorial side of the Wall Street Journal was found dead ion Thursday in his Manhattan home.
    Mr. Rago had won a Pulitzer prize regarding his “against-the-grain” in-depth reporting in 2011 regarding the truth about Obama’s Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Mr. Rago examined it like a pathologist examines a tumor. And he saw it for what it is—deadly.
    Now, he’s dead. No reports of pre-existing illness or depression or unhealthy lifestyle. His boss and co-workers held him in high regard.
    No official word from the NYPD yet.

    Just two weeks ago, a man who was a former government official in Haiti traveled to Miami to testify in an upcoming trial regarding the money that the Clintons were supposed to use to rebuild Haiti after that earthquake years ago. Strangely, although friends had dined with him and described him as being in great spirits, he was found dead the very next day. Gunshot wound to the head.
    Self-inflicted. End of story. No follow-up investigation by any agency.

    Days before the Miami death, an elderly, wealthy man who had been a big time GOP donor and researcher was found dead in Minnesota. He was not from Minnesota. This is the man who was responsible for digging up the dirt years ago on Bill Clinton that came to be known as “Trooper Gate”.
    At the time of his death, he was still investigating matters revolving around the Clintons.
    He was found with a plastic bag wrapped around his head in a hotel room. A suicide note, Printed in large capital letters stated,
    “THIS WAS A SUICIDE. . . .” was found in the room.
    And there was no further investigation by the authorities.

    Why do people have to mix emotions and practicality on this? If a person is ill and cannot complete a needed task, don’t we put in a substitute so the job can get done??? It does not mean we are calloused or uncaring! The person who is ill (if they are a responsible one … ) would want their position filled so the job is not hindered … so cut the ( your’e not very “christian” crap! IF IF IF McCain has as his agenda to keep AMERICA going strong, he would want to have his seat filled ACCORDING to the CONSTITUTION. Have you ever been on a job where an out-ofservice-employee was not replaced? It has nothing to do with whether we feel sorry for the person! SO QUIT WITH THE SLAMS on Kelli Ward who did or said NOTHING wrong or out of place!

    • Clementine says:

      Kelli Ward should have more thoroughly thought through the advisability of having an open comment section on her otherwise excellent campaign site. She’s inviting assaults from the left.

  6. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Ralph Peters’ behavior since Obama left the White House has been really loopy. Tucker Carlson just had it with him recently. This article is absolutely laughable.

    The everyday patriotism of John McCain

  7. Saguaro Sam says:

    Timely topic:
    “Can One Be Good Without God?”

    Even Plato wrote about it.

    column from canadafreepress.com (a brilliant conservative website that should be on your “favorite” list)


  8. VINOAZ says:

    Fact is McCain will not finish this term and should have the decency to resign now. Sadly we all know what he is and what he is not.

  9. Anybody here really expect Arizona’s senior senator to give up his seat even as he nears death and complete disfunction? IMO he will die before retiring. It’s all about,in his mind, being America’s greatest patriot.
