John McCain: His ongoing saga hits the skids

May 22, 2016

Another rollicking email arrives from John McCain. With a simple tap on “unsubscribe” they would vanish. Though we’ve never subscribed to this gagable onslaught, they do provide a bit of levity during an often grueling work week, so once again the temptation is met with resistance. Besides, it’s instructive to see what his operatives regard as effective tactics. Even the most dedicated among his many non-supporters are up for a chuckle or two and Team McCain rarely disappoints.

At age 80, John the Ancient is suiting up for war in the latest 6-year term installment of his ongoing political saga. His salutation is a breezy and presumptuous, “Happy Friday, Friend.” John the Ancient doesn’t speak the language of the people, making him unable to comprehend he’s a foe rather than an ally.  Speaking in the third person he audaciously closes with, “As always, thank you for your continued support in sending John McCain back to the U.S. Senate. We need his experienced leadership now more than ever.”

Come on, John. You’ve been in Washington since 1982 — before many Arizona voters were even born. We deserve more than you provide, a fresh face and constitution-based, conservative ideals have great appeal. You’ve been self-serving and not representative of the majority of people in the state. You lie about building a “dang fence” one day and the next collude with your senate underling Jeff Flake and a host of liberals and RINOs on shoving amnesty for illegals down our throats.  No wonder you were censured by Republican elected state delegates representing districts throughout Arizona who have had their fill of your deceit and vindictive, retaliatory actions. You’ve worn out your welcome.

Then the man who is beholden to lobbyists’ generosity, dark money PACs and is married to a beer heiress, pathetically begs for campaign funds. Forgetting he has a Primary opponent, McCain tells of his launch of a TV ad criticizing Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick for her “unwavering allegiance to the failed Obamacare system.”

John the Ancient, who has been a frequent visitor to the White House and has counseled Barack Obama on crafting his legacy, is suddenly hurling Obama as an invective. It’s an election year, after all. McCain and Jeff Flake would like us to believe they, not their staffers,  have even co-authored an  op-ed this week blasting the Obama administration’s federal overreach. Not on Obama’s contemptible executive orders bypassing congress,  but….on boating restrictions on Lake Havasu.

Lest anyone think the choice of Lake Havasu was serendipitous, it’s worth remembering that Lake Havasu City is the home of his vibrant Primary challenger, Dr. Kelli Ward and the district she represented while a two-term (two years each) state senator. Who better to address the monstrosity of Obamacare than a physician? Arizonans are primed for a change.


GOP Senate RINOs aid Obama’s social engineering

McCain’s arrogance once again places him squarely with the liberal Democrats  

We usually reserve insightful columns for the occasional “Weekend Reading Guaranteed to Make you Smarter” post, but this article, “GOP Leaders Toss Loin Cloth to Democrats on Obama’s War on Suburbs” by Daniel Horowitz is too important to delay even a day.  After reading it, the questions to ask are, “Where is the news coverage on this major issue, and why the silence?”

John McCain’s shameful vote, cast with the Democrats and 15 other squish Republicrats to kill Sen.Mike Lee’s rational amendment should be a front and center election issue for his Primary opponent

[Thursday’s] votes on Obama’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) “war on the suburbs” program, writes Horowitz,  “demonstrates, once again, that having a GOP conference full of liberals is actually worse than having a smaller conference full of conservatives.  Much like an interception is worse than an incomplete pass in football or a ground out into a double play is worse than a strike out in baseball, electing liberal Republicans helps Democrats more in the long run than working with a minority of conservatives to combat the Left and strive to win future elections with an unvarnished message to voters.” 

Those we send to Washington D.C. to represent us, end up with only one goal in mind: staying in their lofty posts at any cost. Once they are elected, we are insignificant. Our concerns? Irrelevant. It’s time to get the hook and bring them back. After over three decades of giving us the shaft, 80-year-old John McCain is running for another 6-year term. Arizona voters have a chance to make a difference.  Vote for Dr. Kelli Ward.

 


Anonymous campaign mudslinging hits new low in AZ Senate race

May 17, 2016

Signifies raw fear permeating  AZ U.S. Senate race

The slick, double-sided hit piece recently arrived in the mail. As campaign mailers go, it’s a costly full color, 8 1/2 x 11 flyer — that had fear written all over it.

Someone — or some PAC, working double time to conceal their true identity, with no “paid for by” tag on the flyer, went to the trouble of securing a Las Vegas mailing permit, while using a Phoenix P. O. Box number — making it impossible to fact check the wild assertions and contemptible conclusions.

If your message is one you’re proud to send, why obscure your identity?

Running against John McCain is not for the faint of heart.  Although his nearly daily mass emailings begging for donations bypass the Primary and pitch the fallacy that his challenge is from Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick in the General Election, Team McCain is worried that the 80-year-old senator running for another six-year-term, has worn out his welcome since first elected in 1982. That’s a long time to be colluding with the most liberal members of congress and lying to the folks back home who oppose the amnesty McCain‘s been peddling for years, beginning with his 2005 collusion with Ted Kennedy.

His surrogates and also-rans are keenly aware of the censures by elected state committeemen that clearly defined the Grand Canyon sized rift between the very senior senator and the conservative grassroots of the AZ GOP.

In this case, it’s obvious the message is intended to deceive. The putrid piece accuses former two-term state senator and physician Kelli Ward of “taking chances with our national security” claiming her “record on defeating Islamic terrorism is dangerous and weak.”

Going so far as to suggest that a principled and conservative state senator played a role in aiding and abetting “Islamic terrorism” would be laughable if not so egregious. Whoever put together the hit piece, is confusing Washington, D.C. with the state legislature on Washington Street.

Dr. Ward’s husband Colonel Michael Ward, has an impressive military bio, serving as the Arizona National Guard Flight Surgeon, deployed world-wide including voluntary tours to Kuwait, Iraq and Turkey. He is an emergency physician and President of Arizona’s Emergency Medicine Specialists. As parents of three children the Ward’s have worked to make their community, state and nation safer.

This is Dr. Kelli Ward. She has been endorsed by Mark Levin, nationally syndicated talk show host and editor-in-chief of Conservative Review. Breitbart News has given her glowing coverage. The influential Second Amendment group, Gun Owners of America, has endorsed her.

Whoever is behind the deplorable hit pieces needs to be exposed. Arizona voters deserve honesty not deception in this most crucial election.


Explosive upsets within the GOP focused on illegal invasion

May 16, 2016

David and Goliath Republican races favoring David

Economics professor David Brat’s walloping defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in June 2014 ushered in one of the most stunning Republican primary election upsets in congressional history. Cantor, who spent lavishly — reportedly $5.7 million — on his campaign, was soundly defeated by the conservative who had hammered him for being insufficiently conservative — and raised just $231,000 doing so — the equivalent of congressional peanuts. Exposing Cantor’s  amnesty for illegals mindset was a major component of Brat’s winning campaign. It helped that nationally known conservatives Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter were on board.

The stunning loss of the GOP squish who was widely perceived as the successor to  former House Speaker John Boehner whetted our appetite for more of the same.

We see similarities in the Arizona U.S. Senate race where Dr. Kelli Ward, a solid conservative, is mounting a challenge to relentless amnesty and open borders promoting Republicrat John McCain (scroll down under link for “McCain at a Glance“) — who spends big bucks gifted by PACs and lobbyists as he disgracefully runs for a sixth six-year-term at age 80.  Dr. Ward is a physician, military wife and mother of three, who has served two, two year  terms in the state senate. She believes in actually securing the border, and has the support of Mark Levin, nationally syndicated conservative radio talk show and Levin TV host, who is editor-in-chief of Conservative Review.  Breitbart News  is also in her corner.

The same scenario is playing out with the surprising ascension of Donald Trump who is the last Republican standing after a brutal 17-candidate state-by-state vetting. Trump was the first candidate to address the illegal invasion elephant in the room, which other candidates either ignored or gave their full-throated approval.  Trump’s vow to build a wall as a step in securing our sovereign nation, moved him to the front of the pack with an increasingly angry citizenry weary of being deceived by those who are supposed to represent us.  The untrustworthy and double talking John McCain says the danged fence he promised to complete, is a waste of billions of dollars.

Current House Speaker Paul Ryan, who is “just not ready” to commit to Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, is facing an unexpected challenge from conservative businessman Paul Nehlen, a first-time candidate who has traveled to all nine sectors of the southern border and is making border security a front and center issue. Conservative author and blogger Michelle Malkin is stumping for Nehlen. Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District primary is August 9th. It’s another race to watch closely.


Dr. Kelli Ward vs. McCain on life issues

May 15, 2016

Abortion is not an “unpleasant procedure,” for the baby, Sen. McCain. It’s death.

Nate Madden, writing for Conservative Review exposes John McCain’s squishy position on the fundamental matter of life in his commentary, “McCain Challenger Hits Back at Pro-Life Group for Endorsing Incumbent.”

Dr. Kelli Ward, a conservative former two-term state senator, mother and physician — who is adamantly pro-life — is challenging the decades-long incumbent McCain, running for another 6-year term at age 80. Ward rightly questions the National Right to Life endorsement given to McCain despite his dubious record.

In 2010 Seeing Red AZ posted, “McCain refuses to answer pro-life questionnaire.” In 2007, John McCain called for returning to a Republican Party Platform which did not include the pro-life plank.  

Listen closely as McCain, summoning up the weakest of adjectives to describe the gruesome death of a pre-born human baby, refers to abortion an “unpleasant procedure.”

 “But we all know, and it’s obvious, that if we repeal Roe v. Wade tomorrow, thousands of young American women will be performing illegal and dangerous operations. I want us to be a party of inclusion. I think that we can all be members of the Republican Party whether we are pro-choice or pro-life because we share the same goal, and that is the elimination of abortion, because it’s an unpleasant and terrible procedure. We think, I think, that we must go back to the Platform of 1980 and 1984 and we include people who have this specific disagreement who share our same goals.”

 Do these equivocating words sound like those of a candidate who is deserving of the National Right to Life endorsement? Give NRTL a call and ask them what they were thinking.

This is Dr. Kelli Ward. It’s time for a change. 

 


Mexico exports its own citizens to influence US elections

May 14, 2016

Politico reports that Mexico is promising a “counteroffensive” to defeat GOP candidate Donald Trump in the elections to be held in the USA this November. The impoverished country run by brutal drug cartels and steeped in corruption is encouraging its own nationals living in the United States to become U.S. citizens in order vote in our elections to influence the outcome. Mexican leaders chafe at the idea that we have the right to secure our sovereign border from the continuing invasion of foreign nationals.

This is how Mexico treats those who illegally Invade its borders. Mexico’s own immigration policies, provided by Discover the Networks, are worth checking out

Remittances sent to Mexico by its nationals living in the United States totaled nearly $24.8 billion in 2015 — more than the country makes from oil revenues. This is in addition to the foreign aid Mexico receives from American taxpayers.

It remains politically incorrect to speak the truth about Mexico, but facts are stubborn things.

We wrote, “Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns,” in 2011.  With the rise of Islamic terrorism in the intervening years, the numbers have only worsened.

As far back as October 2001, World Net Daily (WND) reported in an article titled Arab terrorists crossing border, that there has been a “tremendous increase in OTM’s (law enforcement’s term for ‘Other Than Mexicans’). Illegals from the former Soviet Union, Asia, and the Middle East are joining the flood of Mexicans, Central and South Americans — all slipping in through our incredibly accessible and porous Southern border. At the time, 15 years ago, apprehensions included illegals from the Sudan, Iraq, and even Iran.

How dare Mexico try to influence our elections!


Who actually owes vets an apology McCain or Trump?

May 10, 2016

John McCain, appearing Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” said that Donald Trump needs to “heal many of the wounds” he opened during the initial phase of his presidential campaign. “I think it’s obvious there has to be outreach on his part to heal many of the wounds. Frankly, I have never seen a campaign like this one, where people’s integrity and character are questioned.” One group that needs an apology, McCain said, are prisoners of war. 

In July 2015, Trump appeared at the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa and said McCain is “a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

“There’s a body of American heroes who would like to see him retract that statement,” McCain said. 

“That bothers me a lot. It bothers me a lot because you can violently disagree with someone on an issue, but to attack their character and integrity, those wounds take a long time to heal.” McCain said Trump needed to show more respect for POWs.

That’s an interesting perspective from McCain — though a Vietnam veteran and POW himself — he attacked families of POWs and MIAs in congressional hearings and went to great lengths to make those files secret.

In McCain’s case — the self-described “maverick,” first elected in 1982, has spent well over three decades in D.C. colluding with Democrats, and at age 80 is arrogantly running for yet another six-year term —  proving the old adage, those heels take a long time to wound.

John McCain’s hero status can’t be questioned, but these are the facts: On veterans’ issues, John McCain talks out of both sides of his mouth. This list of key votes (provided by Project Vote Smart) unequivocally shows McCain has either not voted or often voted in opposition to legislation affecting veterans, troops, reservists and their families. The worst scandal involving the Veterans Administration Hospital occurred in here in Arizona under John McCain’s watch resulting in needless deaths of military personnel awaiting care.

John McCain has done everything in his power to block the release of information on American Vietnam era MIAs as evident in this shocking video by Vietnam Veterans Against McCain. It features veterans, U.S. Congressmen and knowledgeable staff.

This equally stunning video shows John McCain stomping out of a congressional hearing after insulting Delores Alfond, chair of the National Alliance of Families, who spent her life seeking information after her brother was shot down over North Vietnam. McCain intentionally made sure all information was classified and made unavailable.

Ask yourself, “Why?” It’s John McCain, himself, who has the explaining to do.
