Flying into McCain?

Mayor Stanton employs odd tactic to aid his next political pursuit — naming airport terminal after pilot who crashed 3 planes*

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton has political aspirations that far exceed the job he’s held since 2012. Although he  filed to run for Secretary of State earlier this year, the liberal Democrat now has his eye on congress. With U. S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, a fellow leftist, abandoning the 9th Congressional District post to run for the U.S. Senate, Stanton has decided to try his luck for the open CD 9 seat in 2018.

His vote-getting scheme calculated to bring RINOs into the Democrat fold is the renaming of Terminal 3 at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Stanton’s fawning words showcase Arizona’s Senior Senator’s (ASS) appeal to the left:

“Senator McCain has given so much of himself to our country, to Arizona and to Phoenix. Giving something back to an American hero, a former naval aviator and a 30-year member of the U.S. Senate is the least we can do,” Stanton announced Thursday.

Stanton also took to twitter where the majority of tweets were anti-McCain, until word went out to give him some accolades, which appear grouped together.

Councilman Jim Waring, who began his political career as an aide to ASS — with whom he still maintains a strong relationship — said:

“This is a fitting tribute to a man who personifies courage and perseverance.” Waring added, “Sky Harbor Airport is one of America’s busiest airports and is a point of pride for Phoenicians.  As such, there is no greater honor the city can bestow than to name one of its terminals after a community leader. Tens of millions of visitors and residents will see Senator McCain’s name and be reminded of his long service and personal sacrifice on behalf of Arizona and our country.” 

Perseverance? Does that include running for another six-year term at age 81? Being the dramatic ‘thumb’s down’ vote against replacing Obamacare? Digging in his heels after a brain cancer diagnosis in order to continue hammering President Trump — including passing a bogus dossier intending to implicate Trump to the FBI director? ASS is a bitter and vengeful man.

Waring’s apple-polishing foolishness requires approval of the Democrat majority City Council members who will consider the proposal Nov. 29. It will then be forwarded to ASS’s office for “full consideration.”  Bet on a quick ‘thumb’s up.’

Terminal 3  is in the midst of a nearly $600 million renovation, scheduled to be completed in 2020.

    Since Mayor Stanton has started his campaign, I have a hard time distinguishing him from the mayor of New York City.

      Wait until he gets his campaign rolling. Sinema has finessed herself into appearing reasonable and completely altered her strident voice and punk appearance. She looks good and sounds rational. She no longer sends Cinco de Mayo greeting to the Communist Worker publication. It’s all repackaging. Many of us remember her previous anti-married women, hatred of our military rhetoric and vulgar talk. During her last campaign she featured ads with a local man and his wife whose returning military son committed suicide. Sinema sounded like Mother Theresa.

      When people started developing a health conscience attitude toward what they were eating, Kentucky Fried Chicken quickly caught on and became KFC. The International House of Pancakes scuttled the word pancakes and morphed into IHOP. They made the changes to stay alive. So did Kyrsten Sinema. It worked for the greasy spoon restaurants and it worked for her.

    The POWs McCain left to die in Vietnam are turning over in their graves.

  3. Frankly Speaking says:

    I don’t trust any politician of either party who aligns themselves with the disreputable ASS John McCain. Democrats have no trouble lavishing praise on him, since he’s one of them. He takes pleasure in taking down conservatives. No lie is too outrageous. His entire career has been spent partnering with liberals, whether Ted Kennedy, Russ Feingold, Joe Lieberman, Chuck Schumer, Robert Menendez, Dick Durbin etc. His efforts to gift amnesty to illegal aliens have always relied on Dems. The term “maverick” provided his cover when he threw Republicans under the bus.

  4. Conservative Since Birth says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the ASS, McCain, is behind this. His resume is far more negative than positive. He is detested across the country, as well as by many Arizonans. He’s not just unpopular, he’s hated.

    We never named anything of any consequence after a politician until that politician was deceased. There was a huge backlash in L.A. when the Democrats named a terminal at LAX after Tom Bradley, the former mayor at the time, who was still vertical. But it was done anyway, breaking tradition.

    As every day passes, McCain’s behavior gets worse and he’s detested all the more. He’s on par with his ‘rock star’ friend, Hillary in the unlikeable department. He’s not a good person. Just a huge egomaniac.

    Ah yes, it seems the truth may be getting out.

    RE: the airport just one crooked Democrat propping up another crooked Democrat (McCain).

  6. VINOAZ says:

    Would be a great time to unseal the Viet Nam records McCain fought so hard to hide.

  7. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    The LA times article linked at the bottom of this post says about one of McCain’s THREE plane crashes,, “The crash was one of three early in McCain’s aviation career in which his flying skills and judgment were faulted or questioned by Navy officials.”

    Obviously nothing has changed. His political “skills” are deceptive and his judgement has remained flawed. Had he not been the son and grandson of US Navy Admirals, he would have been sent packing. Too bad the Navy didn’t act. We never would have been saddled with this miserable, liberal phony today.

  8. JohnJ says:

    Hopefully someone will start a petition to stop terminal three from being named after ASS. This man has done nothing for Az. or the country.

  9. Army Of One says:

    This is “hero” McCain, exposed by those who know him best. Some are former Vietnam POWs and others served in the US Senate with him. Listen as they tell the truth about John McCain. They call him “songbird” for readily spilling information to his captors, and say he made numerous Tokyo Rose type recordings intended to demoralize American troops. That is undoubtedly why he has permanently closed down all access to information regarding MIAs and POWs. McCain has worked harder creating his own inflated “legacy” than he ever has actually representing the citizens of Arizona.

  10. Saguaro Sam says:

    This will break your heart:

    I saw it earlier this week on
    and immediately thought that McCain is just the exact opposite of these two men.

      The picture/short video shows what America is made of. We can’t let that die or be buried under the piles of hate journalism – hate for traditional Americans and patriotism.

      John McCain can’t be mentioned with men like these. They’re men of character. The unsung heroes.
