Ancient McCain picks up speed avoiding reporters’ questions

October 20, 2016

What makes Johnny Mac run?

FTVLive which advertises itself as “Gossip and News From Inside TV Newsrooms Around the Country,” reports McCain Runs From TV Cameras. It details, complete with a video, KPHO CBS 5 political reporter Dennis Welch attempting to talk to John McCain about his comments regarding blocking Hillary Clinton‘s Supreme Court nominees if she were to be elected president. Now in his 80s, McCain is running for another 6-year senate term.

The site’s take was an example of cutting edge humor noting McCain “even ran from the camera, which is pretty good for a guy that’s a 124 years old.”

In May 2010 we posted Casper McCain: Ghostlike apparition nowhere to be seen as he hides from debates. It included a video of John McCain scurrying rat-like at the very mention of J.D. Hayworth’s name. McCain refused to debate the former Arizona Congressman who was challenging him.

During the 2016 Primary, Republicrat McCain outrageously lied about his conservative challenger, two term state senator and physician Dr. Kelli Ward. In TV ads and numerous mailers he referred to her as “weak on defeating ISIS terrorists,” an issue he knew all too well is not dealt with at the state legislative level, but in the U.S. Senate where he has spent decades. He also refused to debate her, knowing she would have him for lunch.

With a career steeped in supporting liberals and their causes, it’s not much of a surprise to find John McCain is ranked lower than any senator in the United Statesas Townhall reports.

Ever heard of Stuart Starky? He was a Democrat perennial candidate who was a salesman and later a grade school teacher, with nothing to recommend him for the U.S. House or Senate both of which he ran for beginning in the 1990s. McCain eagerly debated Starky and even reached out to hug him at the conclusion. Why not? Starky helped keep the marginal McCain politically viable.

Donald Trump recipient of Robert Graham’s major reversal?

October 14, 2016

Where’s that leave petulant John McCain?

In July 2015 it wasn’t just the mid-summer Phoenix temperatures that were soaring.  The intra-party Republican establishment versus conservative grassroots activists feuds had reached fever pitch. With that as a backdrop, we wroteAZ GOP’s Robert Graham’s spiteful retribution,” detailing the pettiness and punishments meted out to early Trump supporters, such as Tyler Bowyer, Maricopa County GOP chairman and conservative elected precinct committeemen.

The intro to that post began with these words:

In a clear case of intra-party punishment aimed at Maricopa County Republican Chairman Tyler Bowyer for having the audacity to buck AZ GOP Chairman Robert Graham and his McCain-led establishment allies, comes this inexcusable retaliation. Bowyer hosted and appeared onstage at the July 11, 2015 Phoenix event featuring presidential candidate Donald Trump. That kind of independence doesn’t play well with those who want to dominate the party and, like John McCain, consider the conservative base “crazies.”

Now it appears Robert Graham has not only experienced a change of heart, but along with his epiphany has decided to buck his mentor John McCain, who just days ago haughtily announced he had pulled his shallow support — and even his and Cindy’s votes — from Republican presidential nominee Trump. The effect of that absurdity is to ensure a victory for Hillary Clinton, who McCain has called “a rock star” he could support.

Can it be that Graham, a committed Team McCain player, is now thumbing his nose at McCain’s ruthless antipathy towards Trump? Graham promotes “forgiveness” and calls for Republicans to come together in this well reasoned column Forgiveness for Some,” posted at Townhall.

Based on past experiences, trusting Robert Graham is a difficult concept for conservatives to wrap their arms around. Who has arms that long?

The latest news is that McCain has warned his volunteers and staff to prepare for a backlash over his denouncement of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.  This NewsMax report includes a YouTube video.

AZ Senate debate tonight: Kirkpatrick vs. McCain

October 10, 2016

Difficult choice is the only rational choice in AZ Senate race featuring renegade McCain

This evening, Monday, Oct. 10, at 7:00 p.m. Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick will debate Republicrat John McCain. The hour-long event will air on AZ PBS Channel 8.

Growing numbers of conservative Republicans, many of whom as elected state delegates voted overwhelmingly to censure the very senior senator, are weary of his career long deceits.  He has taken his wrath out on them by purging them from their elected precinct committeeman posts, via an expensive campaign utilizing deceptive mailers. Though now in his 80’s, and scoring an F rating by Conservative Review, McCain is running for yet another six-year term.

Conservatives  have had their fill of the radically leftwing McCain and many are doing the previously unthinkable — planning to cast their ballots for the Congressional District One U.S. Representative Ann Kirkpatrick. Former twice elected Maricopa County Republican chairman Rob Haney has launched theNever McCaincampaign.

Kirkpatrick is far from perfect, but McCain, who runs as a Republican and then repeatedly colludes with Democrats, is worse.  Republicans have legitimate expectations that voting for someone who claims the GOP mantel will be with us the majority of the time. Actually, the man who configures himself as a “maverick” has voted to confirm many of Barack Obama’s far left cabinet nominees and his nominees to the federal judiciary. As McCain’s close associate Hillary Clinton and actual presidential choice famously asked, “What difference does it make?”

As a freshman senator, Kirkpatrick will not have the clout to do the same damage.  She has also campaigned on term limiting herself. Decades of the disastrous Reign of McCain has made that an appealing option.

The debate will hosted by Arizona PBS and the Arizona Republic. Count on “Horizon” moderator Ted Simons and Republic reporter Yvonne Wingett Sanchez to lob softballs in McCain’s direction. Cunning liberals running as Republicans are nearer to their hearts than actual Democrats.

Reminder: Be sure to view the sixth briefing in the Never McCain series, titled “Betrayal.” Like those that have preceded it, this segment is well worth your time.


A frank discussion with Donald Trump

October 8, 2016

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has reportedly cancelled nearly $1.7 million in televised ads scheduled for the key states of Florida, North Carolina, and Ohio — as well as other buys in Colorado, Iowa, New England and Pennsylvania markets.

This decision coincides with the release of a decade old, open mic spew of vulgarities, for which Trump apologized Friday (video). Still, he was unable to resist impetuously leaving the door open to discuss Bill Clinton’s extramarital escapades.

Too easily distracted, Trump must focus on the needs of our nation.

This tit-for-tat strategy is pure folly. Bill Clinton is not running in this upcoming election. The issues are the enormous debt incurred by Barack Obama, which Hillary Clinton would expand upon as she promises free college tuition and increased benefits. Joblessness is on the rise. Social Security and government-funded health care are unsustainable and must be retooled. The flood of unable to be vetted “refugees” from terror sponsoring nations must come to an abrupt end.  Our border must be secured. In these uncertain times, it’s imperative we invest more in defense and rebuilding our military, long neglected by Obama — who prefers bowing to despots, heads of corrupt regimes and Muslim royalty on his global apology tour — to safeguarding American citizens. There is no question beefing up the nation’s deteriorating infrastructure is an issue of foremost importance. We are vulnerable on far too many fronts.

Republicans need to win this election, Mr. Trump. Redefine the perpetual pout and limit the adjectives. We heard you the first time. No need to repeat everything three times.

This isn’t rocket science. Alicia Machado was not the bait you should have taken in the first debate. Neither is attempting to cover your own crude statements by trying to make Bill Clinton’s conduct worse.  This is not a vulgarity contest.

Donald Trump needs to move past these distractions and discuss his vision for America. That’s the only message.

After eight years of the outrageous excesses of Barack Obama, this presidential election should have been a cake walk for Republicans. Instead key endorsers are peeling away and the campaign is on life support. It can be resurrected, but the clock is ticking. Stay on message, Mr. Trump.

We need you.

Newt solicits for McCain, omits key facts & Update

October 7, 2016

McCain finally out of the closet, seeking Democrat support as fed up Republicans abandon him

John McCain hardly qualifies as needy. Married to a major beer distributorship heiress he’s number 29 on  Roll Call’s Wealth of Congress Index. But that doesn’t keep Newt Gingrich from emerging from relative obscurity to beg on McCain’s behalf. “Send what you can,” we are told. Even $25 will help him in his fight to defeat U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick.

As an inducement, Newt says, “I have worked with John and watched him chair the Senate Armed Services Committee.”  Many will remember how chairman McCain insulted Delores Alfond who spent decades until her death seeking information about her MIA brother, records McCain has inexplicably kept “classified” and inaccessible.

Newt writes, “You may know Ann Kirkpatrick as a faithful servant of Barack Obama.” No doubt it slipped his mind that John McCain has been a frequent visitor to the Obama White House, assisting him in crafting his legacy. McCain’s senate protégé Jeff Flake is so tight with Obama that he traveled with him to Kenya and Cuba and regularly joins in a game of “hoops” with the Prez, but refuses to endorse the GOP presidential nominee, Donald Trump.

Newt again: “I know how hard John works for veterans, for the military, for our national security-and I know that John McCain is a national treasure.”

Few will forget the deplorable Veterans Administration scandal resulting in needless deaths of hundreds of vets erupted in Phoenix, under McCain‘s nose, within a short distance from “national treasure” McCain’s penthouse — one of the 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, or 11 homes he and Cindy ownHe’s not sure.

As to our nation’s security, McCain and Jeff Flake were the architects of the notorious Gang of Eight amnesty bill, crafted with a coalition of senate leftists and a couple of other RINOs — the aim of which was to normalize millions of illegal invaders.

Newt says: “We cannot afford to lose John McCain’s voice in the Senate. We need to fight back against the Democrats’ millions in Arizona and stand strong with John.”

Let’s not forget that “the voice we can’t afford to lose,” is the same one that lied with impunity, preposterously accusing his primary election challenger, physician and former state senator Dr. Kelli Ward, of having a “weak and dangerous record regarding Islamic terrorism.”  Even one as marginal as John McCain should comprehend that state legislators do not deal in matters of national security.  That’s McCain’s own purview in the U.S. Senate, where he has failed miserably.

“McCain’s voice,” so adored by Newt Gingrich, is also the one that has been integral to confirming Obama’s far left cabinet members and the most liberal federal judges. Republicans have every right to expect those of our own party elected to represent us in Congress will not collude with Democrats.  What good is electing someone who conveniently hauls out a Republican cloak when it’s beneficial, only to toss it aside and return to his mavericky ways after the ballots are counted?

McCain so disdains conservatives that he has worked overtime to have them purged from their elected precinct committeeman positions, using out-of-state Obama donors to accomplish the deed. PCs are unpaid party workers, dedicated to getting Republicans elected   McCain’s operatives, on his behalf, even tried working with the IRS to target conservatives for IRS scrutiny.

We can’t get worse from Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick and she is running on a term limits pledge.  McCain, now in his 80s is arrogantly running for another 6-year senate term. Haven’t you had enough?


Finally, John McCain has come out of the closet — launching Democrats for McCain. Back in 2006, the Republicans for Janet (Napolitano) website was rife with McCain surrogates and staffers. His border stroll with Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, declaring he was going tocomplete the dang fenceto keep out illegal criminals from Mexico doesn’t reach his intended audience this election. 

Hypocrisy abounds as Marxist pope mocks U.S. election

October 3, 2016

While discussing the U.S. presidential candidates with a gaggle of reporters aboard his private jet returning from a three-day visit to the to the former Soviet Republics of Georgia and Azerbaijan, Pope Francis cunningly replied to a question dealing with the problems both candidates might present for devout Catholics. He responded with these slippery words, “During political campaigns, I never say a word. The people are sovereign. I would only say, study the proposals well, pray and choose with your conscience.”

Then unable to restrain himself, claiming he wanted to talk about a “fictional situation,” Francis proceeded to insult the United States and our citizens.

“When in any country there are two, three or four candidates who don’t satisfy everyone, it means that perhaps the political life of that country has become too politicized and that it does not have much political culture,” he said.

“People say ‘I’m from this party’ or ‘I’m from that party,’ but effectively, they don’t have clear thoughts about the basics, about proposals,” he lectured.

Really? In Italy’s 2015 presidential election, members of the Electoral College representing seven major political parties voted on several dozen candidates. Only members of Parliament (Senators) and regional delegates are entitled to vote . Does Francis think they have a preferable “political culture?”  And what about the Italian citizens? Does it bother him that they have no say in their own governance? In his homeland of Argentina, “free direct elections” have not been the norm until recently. Many heads of state attained their post via Coup d’état.

This past February, while returning from a politically timed trip to the Mexican side of the U.S. / Mexican border, Francis opined that Donald Trump’s pledge to build a border wall to control the invasion of illegal foreign nationals into the United States exposed him as, “not Christian.” An odd assertion from a church leader who lives amid splendor inside a massive 50-foot-tall, ten-feet thick wall surrounding the fortress that is Vatican City.

“I am a pawn?’ he asked at the time. “Well, maybe, I don’t know. I’ll leave that up to your judgment and that of the people.“ He continued, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the Gospel. As far as what you said about whether I would advise to vote or not to vote, I am not going to get involved in that. I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that.”

Francis, who opted to visit with the Communist Castro brothers in Cuba prior to addressing Congress needs to stay out of U.S. politics. It is neither “fitting nor proper” to borrow a couple of words from Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

The President of Italy has the ability to appoint Senators for Life. We know how well that concept works out here, with arrogant octogenarian John McCain unable to relinquish power as he runs for yet another 6-year term in his 80s. Today we present the most recent video briefing in the ongoing series “Never McCaintitled “Senate and Unity Concerns.”

Opposition to Trump features link to Muslim Brotherhood

September 30, 2016

Both Arizona U.S. Senators lacking rational thought

Staying on top of the news is an all-consuming effort. With jobs and family responsibilities, the task often seems overwhelming. Still, we know we have an obligation to remain as well-informed as possible for the well-being of our families and to vigilantly make the right decisions as we vote to secure America’s future.

With those thoughts in mind, we are providing a direct link to The Last Refuge/Conservative Treehouse.  This recent post, The Emerging Connections Between the Muslim Brotherhood and “Never Trump is an important key to your arsenal of information.

The post provides in-depth information, stating, “The “Never Trump” coalition has always consisted of a few noisy and indecent politicians within Washington DC.  Senator Ben Sasse, Senator Jeff Flake and Representative Adam Kinzinger the most noteworthy and vitriolic.”  It also links the far-past-his-prime, octogenarian John McCain to the Muslim Brotherhood, and ISIS, who McCain mischaracterized as “freedom fighters.” The pictures aren’t new, but substantiate the allegations.

Dan Nowicki, John McCain’s assigned reporter at the pro-McCain Arizona Republic, reported in 2014 that McCain vehemently denies ever meeting with and posing for photos with the ISIS militants. Do you believe the very senior senator or your lying eyes?

Arrogance does strange things to marginal people. But the question remains, “How did Arizona get so lucky as to have both of our U.S. Senators on the wrong side of crucial issues?”
