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?

Update-tag

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. 


Establishment GOP targets conservative U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar

August 17, 2016

Truth takes a back seat when passing off RINOs as conservatives

It comes as a disappointment but not a surprise that Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar finds himself targeted for removal from office by the party elites, who are never inclined to back the  proven conservative when a malleable squish candidate is in the wings. Dr. Gosar, a dentist, was elected to Congress with no prior political experience but a burning desire to make a difference and challenge the D.C. status quo. He ably defeated Anne Kirkpatrick the incumbent liberal Democrat in his first election. His impressive list of ratings from conservative organizations follows his bio.

Roll Call exposes the shameful antics being used in an attempt to oust conservatives in general and Dr. Paul Gosar, in particular.

Politico reports that conservatives in the House say they are under siege.

“Absolutely, we’re being targeted, absolutely,” said Rep. Paul Gosar, a House Freedom Caucus member who’s seen a group called Right Way PAC drop $211,000 on negative radio ads and mailers (and promise more to come) ahead of his late-August primary. “Over and over again [this year], you see the same thing with them. Look, the Freedom Caucus hasn’t challenged anyone who’s a sitting member. We’ve only played in open seats, but isn’t that interesting that K Street and Wall Street are playing against members?

“This isn’t a game for this year, but a game for next year. This isn’t just a short game, this is a long game,” said Gosar, who’s still expected to win his primary

Richard Viguerie’s Conservative HQ titles it’s coverage of this establishment-led travesty, “Outing Ray Strauss, the Phony Conservative Running Against Rep. Paul Gosar in AZ-4.”  Regardless whether or not you live in CD 4 the information is crucial, since the anti-conservative tentacles could reach your district next.

Congressman Gosar has an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association and is the NRA endorsed candidate in the race, yet in one radio ad aired by the deceptive Right Way PAC Ray Strauss is touted as the candidate “to protect the Second Amendment. Right Way PAC’s ads also hit Gosar for “voting to fund Obamacare” when, in fact, he supported the effort to defund the massive takeover of the nation’s health care delivery system on numerous occasions. 

The House Freedom Caucus’ mission statement describes the group as “giving a voice to countless Americans who feel that Washington does not represent them. We support open, accountable and limited government, the Constitution and the rule of law, and policies that promote the liberty, safety and prosperity of all Americans.”

No wonder its members are targeted for defeat by well-financed, rampaging political insiders.

Seeing Red AZ supports proven conservative Dr. Paul Gosar.


John McCain’s deception exposed by Nat’l Pro-Life Alliance

August 16, 2016

Many conservatives found a letter from National Pro-Life Alliance in their mailboxes Monday. It specifically calls out AZ Sen. John McCain for repeatedly blocking pro-life initiatives. The letter, signed by Jenni Harris, the group’s executive director, cuts right to the chase. She explains that the Life at Conception Act which would legislatively bypass Roe v. Wade by using the Supreme Court’s own language against itself, now has a record 164 co-sponsors in both the U.S. House and Senate — including four of the five Republican Congressmen from Arizona. Harris says, “As I write this letter, John McCain is not among them, despite multiple meetings and calls to his staff.”

The letter further states, “In fact, Sen. McCain is the only candidate in the Senate Republican Primary who has not answered the Republican candidate survey.”

McCain’s deception on life issues is nothing new. May 15, 2016 Seeing Red AZ posted “Dr. Kelli Ward vs. McCain on life issues,” which includes a illuminating video displaying McCain’s bizarre view of the pro-life movement, in which he refers to the ending of a perfect and healthy pre-born human life as an “unpleasant….procedure,” though he made it clear he didn’t want to restrict them. 

Dr. Kelli Ward, a conservative former two-term state senator, military wife,  mother of three and a family practice 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 appalling record.

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

Hillary Clinton, referred to by John McCain as a ‘rock star he could support,“ and portrayed in the liberal media as a doting grandmother, isn’t ashamed to say that she supports aborting a baby even on its due date. During an appearance on ‘The View,” Hillary did not flinch from her support of the U.S. Supreme Court’s imposed policy of abortion-on-demand for the full nine months of pregnancy enshrined in Roe v. Wade. She was asked: “At what point does someone have constitutional rights, and are you saying that a child, on its due date, just hours before delivery, still has no constitutional rights?” Hillary’s swift reply? “Under our law that is the case. .I support Roe v. Wade.’ (Video)

By his words, actions and associations, John McCain continues to lie by declaring himself pro-life. The facts tell a different story.

Once again McCain expects to lure us all aboard his Forked Tongue Express. Vote for Dr. Kelli Ward and we can put this embarrassing chapter of Arizona history behind us.


McCain hustles for dough,lies,hides from debates

July 27, 2016

The email solicitations for funds are coming fast and furiously from John McCain. His consultants must be charging him by the word, since the last begging missives have shortened the salutations from “My friend” to simply “Friend.”

McCain is not cash strapped. Bankrolled with $ millions, he pays handsomely for strategists to conceive new desperation ploys to rake in money — bolstering reliable lobbyist cash flows — which in turn is spent on commercials that shamefully engage in blatant lies aimed at his primary opponent Dr. Kelli Ward.

As an example, are claims that while in the state senate she voted to imperil our military and embolden ISIS. Kelli Ward is a military wife.  Her husband is a Colonel in the U.S. Air Force and is the flight surgeon for the Arizona Air National Guard. State legislators don’t vote on issues of national security. The U.S. Congress where McCain has spent over three decades, does. McCain not only lies, but insults the intelligence of Arizona voters with these contemptible falsehoods.

Dr. Ward, a family practice physician and conservative former state senator has challenged McCain to a debate prior to the Aug. 30 Primary Election, but the 80-year-old McCain running for his sixth 6-year term, has remained mute.

During the Republican National Convention which Ward attended but John McCain and Jeff Flake peevishly boycotted, Ward told the Arizona Republic:

“Senator McCain and his cronies in the Arizona Grassroots Action PAC have spent over $2 million attacking me, so obviously, Senator McCain has something he wants to say. I think he should say it to me, to my face. He should man up, stop stabbing me in the back, and let’s get the policy out on the table and in front of the people of Arizona.”

The newspaper reported “a spokeswoman from McCain’s reelection campaign did not respond to its request for comment on Ward’s debate challenge.

In 2004 McCain willingly engaged in a debate with perpetually losing Democrat candidate  Stuart Starky a middle school teacher who presented no threat, but played the same duck and dodge games with conservative former congressman J.D. Hayworth. Hayworth finally embarrassed McCain onto a debate stage, though McCain’s stooge Jimmie Lee Deakin shared the dais.

Dr. Kelli Ward will also fight back  She’s intelligent, conservative, knowledgeable on the issues while displaying a healthy dose of grit. What an asset she’d be in the U.S. Senate as Obamacare gets overhauled.

This was the honest assessment of presidential candidate John McCain’s mother back in 2008, when she was asked about his level of support within the base of the Republican Party.

It hasn’t gotten any better in the intervening years. The nation’s lowest esteemed senator, McCain has actually been censured by the elected officials of his own party at the annual statewide statutory meeting. 

We can do better. When Dr. Kelli Ward (video) says, “Send a fresh, new voice to the U.S. Senate: Let’s shake up Washington together,” you know those are not hollow words. It’s time for a change, Arizona.


AZ’s U.S. Senators seek to purge conservatives

July 18, 2016

Flake, McCain work from the same conservative-hating playbook

Jeff Flake has had a busy weekend, making certain his highlighted locks are in place, checking to ensure the whitening strips have done the job on his pearly whites, and perfecting his crusade against not only GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, but also Trump’s supporters in case any media outlets come a callin‘. Flake’s abhorrence of conservatives includes those who previously supported him.

Flake follows his mentor, the Democrat-colluding John McCain who waged war on the conservative base of the Arizona Republican Party after he was publicly censured by statewide elected party leaders. McCain even used out-of-state Obama donors to aid in his purge of dedicated elected precinct committeemen. Flake tells media sources that “many of Trump’s fans are motivated by racism and need to get the boot as soon as Trump, he hopes, goes down in flames.”

You might need to read that again. Jeff Flake hopes Trump goes down in flames. The only takeaway is that Flake is hoping Hillary Clinton is victorious. McCain has begrudgingly come out in support of Trump, but only because he’s running for reelection an needs every vote he can get. At age 80, he’s running for another 6-year term. He previously called Hillary Clinton “a rock star he could support.”

Flake should know a thing or two about racism, after raising Tanner, a son who takes bigotry awards in every imaginable category.
This intra-party name calling is nothing new.  In 2008, now retired U.S. Rep. John Shadegg called Arizonans who desire actual border security “intolerant and xenophobic” in an interview with the New York Times. He never gave such ham-fisted quotes to the local press and likely thought the hometown yokels don’t read the tony New York Times. Obviously, he’s wrong. So are McCain and Flake.

Flake’s amnesty slipperiness is legendary. Tony Lee, writing for Breitbart reports Flake also indicated that “he had no interest in aggressively opposing” Obama’s executive amnesty — though studies in the New York Times and the Washington Post have found that Republicans can win the White House in 2016 and beyond without supporting amnesty legislation. Don’t tell that to Jeff Flake.  This issue is visceral for him.

Laura Ingraham, popular conservative talk show host, has said she’d like to move to Arizona to “primary challenge” Jeff Flake.  Talk is cheap, Laura.  Get a move on.


John McCain needs to heed his own advice

June 13, 2016

Sen. John McCain: “If all you have to run on is negative attack ads, you don’t have much of a vision for the future.”

There’s no denying the truth in his comment.

Which is precisely why McCain — campaigning for reelection for another 6-year term at age 80 — is running endless attack ads against Dr. Kelli Ward.  Let’s make sure she’s able to get her principled, conservative message out to the voters. Unlike McCain, she doesn’t have a well oiled cadre of lobbyists and liberal PACs to keep the money flowing.

Just last week we exposed the vile ads being run against physician and former state senator Kelli Ward, in a post titled, “Vicious AZ US Senate campaign ads: Follow the McMoney.”

Bold, fresh and fearless, Dr. Kelli Ward needs our help. There won’t be a do-over.  In this most crucial U.S. Senate election, Arizonans have the opportunity to make a much-needed change. Send her what you can.

 

 


The repackaging of Jeff Flake begins

May 31, 2016

There it was. An above-the-fold, front page article citing Jeff Flake’s report on wasteful federal spending held sway on two pages of the Sunday edition of the Arizona Republic. Co-authored by Dan Nowicki, whose ongoing assignment at the newspaper has been burnishing the increasingly tarnished image of John McCain, the article gives the definite impression that the very senior senator’s recent sagging polling numbers have caused the resuscitation team to get to work on McCain’s underling. Flake with a 27% approval rating, toppled McCain (30%) as the nation’s most unpopular senator. The man with a penchant for streaking blonde through his hair and taking beef cake shots of himself will be running for a second six-year term in 2018.

Flake, who has his own set of problems with conservatives has, with righteous indignation, milked the “earmarks” cow since he was first elected to the U.S. House in 2000. No one denies there is wasteful spending in Washington, DC, but the most egregious example is funding the invaders who enter our country by stealth. Yet the guy who feigns outrage over studies that even the newspaper admitted had merit that the initial wording obscured, willingly joined John McCain in leading Marco Rubio and a pack of the Senate’s most dedicated liberals who, as the Gang of Eight, once again tried to shove amnesty down the throats of the American people.

Jeff Flake is not an honest broker as the newspaper noted here, and for going back on his term limits pledge, smirking as he admitted, “I lied.” In fact, he has said that “the beauty of six-year senate terms” is that the voters have short memories. Flake has become a frequent traveling buddy of Barack Obama‘s  and even accompanied him on a trip to his father‘s African homeland of Kenya. Flake previously worked as a lobbyist in South Africa.

 Between 1990 and 1991, Flake was a registered foreign agent for Rossing Uranium, a company which operates a mine in Namibia that is among the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel —- and partially owned by Iran. He earned approximately $7,000 per month opening doors in the nation’s capital and promoting the firm, according to records obtained by National Journal, which writes, “Flake’s little-known time in the influence industry stands in contrast to his carefully cultivated image as a Washington outsider.”

 In 2013 nationally syndicated conservative Laura Ingraham was so incensed over Jeff Flake’s duplicity on the issue of illegal immigration, that she said:

“Let me tell you — I am thinking of moving to Arizona. You know why? I will primary challenge Sen. Jeff Flake myself, if that’s what this requires. Jeff Flake, living up to his last name, backed down from a previous promise his spokeswoman made to Breitbart. This is just like Marco [Rubio] breaking his promise, basically, that he would consider voting in favor of amendments to the Senate’s immigration bill that would close a loophole of allowing illegal immigrants access to state and local welfare. Jeff Flake voted with the liberals against the Ted Cruz amendment.”

Let’s hope she remembers those words.
