The “Maverick” is not gone: The hustle goes on

Many of us were surprised to find a message from Cindy Hensley McCain among our recent email. Included in the missive is a video, urging us not only to vote in the upcoming election, but to pledge to vote like “Mavericks.”

Surely she isn’t encouraging us to emulate her late husband and give a dramatic thumbs down (brief video) to our own party?

Make no mistake. Cindy is hustling. She writes, “As you know, my husband dedicated his life to serving a cause greater than himself. That’s why I’m so proud to let you know about the McCain Institute’s new initiative: #MavericksNeeded.

Its supposed focus is human rights. Cindy tells us, “If you care about human rights, if you refuse to tolerate injustice – you are a Maverick. You belong in the arena.”

The core is far more complex. In September, when appointed as a senate place holder, former Arizona Senator Jon Kyl made clear his intention to leave in December 2018.  This reemergence of Cindy McCain sounds a like a priming of the pump for Gov. Ducey to appoint her to finish out her hubby’s term. Cindy recently endorsed Ducey as he campaigns for a second term, but their relationship is much deeper than the political.  When Ducey first arrived in Arizona to attend ASU, his first job was working for Cindy’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship. The Ducey’s have remained close to the McCain’s, even visiting John in his final days at the McCain’s Cornville compound. John McCain encouraged Ducey’s political career.

“The values John fought for weren’t just his, they are and remain American ideals — and it’s time to fight for them again. That’s what this initiative is all about,” Cindy tells us. “It’s not about right or left, it’s about right or wrong.  Mavericks like you are needed now more than ever.” We are even instructed to take a pledge to carry on McCain’s legacy.

This ambitious undertaking is all under the auspices of the McCain Institute at ASU — a slick means of skirting campaign finance reform, allegedly so near and dear to John’s heart.

As renowned burlesque queen Gypsy Rose Lee was famous for saying,“Ya gotta have a gimmick.”

    Cindy is treating Arizona voters as mindless McRobots, as she obviously looks to feather her own political career. Former AZ Secretary of State, Ken Bennett correctly predicted this and even campaigned on the fact that he would never appoint her. Unfortunately getting into the race late and trying to gather enough funding to qualify for Clean Elections matching funds, didn’t work out.

    Here’s the deal:
    Research the ties (ties that BIND) the McCain Institute and
    Lynn de Rothschild.

    Do you know that name, LdR?
    Check her out. Belongs to a family with bloodlines that go all the way to . . . . . . . evil.

    The family that controls the central banks of almost every country on the face of the earth.
    Including The Vatican.
    Damn straight.
    Research the ties between the “institute” and the Bronfman family.
    Clare Bronfman, in particular. They are the heirs to the
    Seagrams fortune. Canada.

    Get the picture? Seagrams, liquor, adult beverages?

    Soros, Clinton, Saudis and the above chicks.

    I’ve never trusted Cindy. She’s personally ambitious in her own right and campaigning alongside her RINO husband, provided her the national prominence that will make this an easy sell for her former employee, Ducey.

    She and Meghan were among those pushing same sex “marriage equality”when it first emerged in California. The campaign was called, “NoH8, since the ballot measure was Number 8. (No Hate). The two appeared in a commercial with other liberals with duct tape over their mouths with the NoH8 slogan printed on it.

    This is what still remains up on the websit.

    Would not be surprised if Cindy and the rest of the McCain clan are voting for Sinema.

  5. State Delegate says:

    It’s clear that SRAZ is on to something here. The timing is more than coincidental. Ducey will wait until after the November 6 election to make the announcement.

    • Braveheart says:

      Doug Ducey is unpopular with many Arizonans for caving in to the outrageous wage hike of the striking RedforEd teachers, demanding a 20% pay increase after initially saying he wouldn’t do so. The reward was given after the public school teachers, following a Bernie Sander’s Socialist leader, walked out for a week abandoning their students at the end of the school year, when tests were supposed to be given and transcripts were needed by those graduating high school and attending college. Gutless Ducey is fortunate to be running against far leftie David Garcia, who is on record as wanting to raise our taxes, abolish ICE and opposing the completion of the much needed border wall.

      When the unionist teachers walked out, Gov. Ducey should have given them a warning to return to their jobs or be fired, exactly as President Ronald Reagan did with the striking PATCO unionist air traffic controllers.

    So, a vote for Ducey is a vote for Cindy McCain?

  7. Frankly Speaking says:

    The grieving widow hasn’t let any grass grow under her feet. Through her trust, beer heiress Cindy McCain just paid $2.28 million for a 5,000 sq. ft. house in the north central Phoenix corridor, not far from the one she and McCain lived in before moving to the Biltmore area high security penthouse condo, just down the road from Saks Fifth Avenue. The condo is not listed for sale.

    Cindy collects houses the way most of us collect sea shells.

    During his presidential election, John McCain caught flack when a reporter asked him how many homes they owned. He replied, “I’ll have staff get back to you on that.”
    The couple owned at least seven, but they are all in Cindy’s name. Technically, John McCain was homeless.

    Anyone who does not know the Don Bolles story from decades ago, look up his name and be informed.
    Just received latest “Dem ad” from Rob Haney. His words “You’ll love this one.” and did I ever….

    AZ DPS. Endorsed Sinema. Not once. Not twice. . . . . . .

    Really guys? Can you even READ? Or watch youtube?

    Cindy McCain hasn’t specified where human rights are being repressed. Perhaps Oak Creek or Patagonia, scenic Arizona communities where anything could be going on undetected. The McCain compound is in Cornville. Maybe she observed some nefarious plots along the winding rural roadways. It appears she’s searching for a campaign issue. Opioids would be a good one for her since she has firsthand knowledge from her stint stealing drugs from the group she was giving philanthropic aid to.

    I wonder what her campaign slogan would be, How about, “I know crime when I see it.”?
