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. 

 


McCain embraces Obama’s scheme placing women in combat

May 13, 2016

After over three decades of McCain, vote Dr. Kelli Ward. Arizonans deserve a senator with integrity 

Daniel Horowitz writing for Conservative Review provides a disturbing insight into the mind of John McCain in his commentary, “McCain slips in provision to draft women in defense bill.” The report contains updates, with the promise of more to come as new information is made available.

McCain, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, is engaging in what is described as “social engineering,” placing women in special operations and direct combat under provisions outlined in the revised National Defense Authorization Act that requires young women to register for Selective Service.

Conservative Review’s Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin has unequivocally endorsed Dr. Kelli Ward, a former two-term state senator currently running for the U.S. Senate. Nate Madden’sMeet Kelli Ward, the anti-amnesty State Senator taking on John McCain in Arizona  provides an excellent introduction to the conservative physician, military wife and mother of three, who is well equipped to address the federal overreach, health care disaster, known as Obamacare.  

Listen to Kelli Ward’s interview here,  Read her impressive bio and scroll down for her video. Be sure to check out her issues pages. Then send her what you can. Kelli Ward is running a grassroots campaign. John McCain relies upon out-of-state PACs with unnamed donors and his lobbyist cronies who make donations/payments for the favors he continues to provide them.

After well over three decades in D.C., it’s past time for a change. Bring Johnny Mac home. At age 80, he’s arrogantly running for another six-year term. He needs a rest, and so do we. 


AZ Gov. Ducey’s veto supports gun restrictionist Michael Bloomberg

May 12, 2016

Action dilutes Ducey’s signing of two 2nd Amendment bills

The NRA enthusiastically reported that two of the bills the organization backed in Arizona  — SB 1266 and HB 2338  were signed by the governor.

The report states, “The NRA-backed bills won support throughout the Arizona State Legislature despite attempts by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s out-of-state gun control groups to derail them with outlandish claims of gloom and doom.”

But that’s only part of the story.

Gov. Doug Ducey vetoed HB 2524, which actually assists dedicated gun restrictionist Michael Bloomberg and leaves a hole big enough for liberals to drive a MACK truck through. The Arizona Citizens Defense League had requested the interstate firearms legislation which would have prohibited Arizona and other member states from enacting firearm transfer requirements that are more restrictive that existing federal law. In his veto letter Gov. Ducey said that he sees “no reason for Arizona to tie ourselves to other state’s decisions on public policy relating to the transfer of firearms.”

By agreeing to follow federal law as part of an interstate compact, enactment of HB 2524 would have derailed the Bloomberg financed ballot measure Arizonans can expect to be filed soon. If this ballot measure passes in November, it will criminalize all private firearms transfers in Arizona that are not conducted through a federal firearms licensee. In order to make this “universal background check” requirement work, state level gun owner registration would have to take place –-  otherwise how would they know you are breaking the law?

By vetoing HB 2524, Gov. Ducey gave the green light to Bloomberg. Now that the Legislative session is over, all that Bloomberg needs for his measure to get on the November ballot is to file the required paperwork and gather 150,642 petition signatures by July 7. Easy work for a billionaire.

In 2014, after passage of a “universal background check” ballot measure in the state of Washington, Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety bragged that they were going to target Nevada, Maine and Arizona for the same treatment. In 2015, Bloomberg’s groups successfully met the requirements to get their scheme on the 2016 Nevada ballot. Earlier this year, they met similar requirements in Maine. 

In April, Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, hired Pedro Morillas, a New York lobbyist registered in Arizona. That sends a clear signal they are getting ready to start the petition filing process here. The countdown has begun. We can still win!

With the Governor’s veto of HB 2524, we need to shift our focus to defeating Bloomberg at the ballot box in November. In Washington, despite Bloomberg and his buddies spending over $10 Million, their ballot measure passed with only 59% of the vote. That suggests to us that if gun owners show up on Election Day we can tilt the odds in our favor. But, that means we need to pull together to make sure that Arizona’s gun owners understand the issue.

Seeing Red AZ realized something was amiss with the information in the NRA report when Tucson was misspelled by the Fairfax, Virginia based NRA.. Arizona Citizens Defense League is based here in our own state. The NRA lost credibility when it endorsed John McCain in the 2010 Senate race after he worked for years to close what he referred to as the “gun show loophole,” which gun owners know to be a farce. Here’s McCain in a 2008 campaign ad, meddling in Colorado politics. In 2007, the NRA also endorsed then-Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon, a liberal Democrat who was dedicated to a city gun buy-back project paying for firearms to be melted down and recast into sculpture.

Such lunacy is the aim of leftists and Republicrats. We must defeat them with our votes. Knowledge is power. Share this post with those you know who value our constitutionally based freedoms.  Our nation’s Founders placed the Second Amendment immediately after the First for a reason.


Hillary’s words bring her down in West Virginia

May 10, 2016

To no one’s surprise, Bernie Sanders has won the West Virginia Democrat primary. Sanders’ victory comes one week after he prevailed over Hillary Clinton in Indiana’s Democrat primary. The New York Times has the latest numbers.

Republican Donald Trump easily took West Virginia.

Sanders benefited from Clinton’s haughty dismissal of coal miners when speaking about the coal industry in mining-heavy West Virginia. Clinton was unable to get out of the hole she dug herself  during a CNN sponsored town hall in March where she boasted, “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”

Watch as this coal miner confronts Hillary and listen to her lies, which she now characterizes as a “misstatement.”

 


Still have questions about Prop. 123? Here’s clarity

May 7, 2016

VOTE NO ON PROP. 123:  There is no free money, but plenty of deception

Arizona treasurer Jeff DeWit, interviewed by Fox News’ John Hook on Newsmaker Sunday, brings a dose of reality to this hot topic.

Seeing Red AZ has previously written two posts on the topic:

Vote NO on deceptive Prop. 123

AZ School funding sham exposed: Vote NO on Prop. 123


McCain’s office “rally” shows he knows he can’t generate a crowd

May 5, 2016

John McCain has scheduled a rally Friday morning — May 6 —at his local Phoenix office. It will feature a quartet of disappointing freshman GOP senators Joni Ernst (IA ), David Perdue (GA), Dan Sullivan (AK), and Cory Gardner (CO). (Click on their names to see their Conservative Review scores.)

McCain’s choice of freshman Republicans speaks to the fact that those who know him best, like him least. Scheduling a rally in his office rather than a large venue makes it clear he knows he can’t generate a crowd.

McShadows Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake must have been otherwise occupado. His reliable liberal Democrat Gang of Eight amnesty cohorts — Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Bob Menendez, and Michael Bennet, wouldn’t be prudent choices when he’s running for reelection. 

It should be difficult to imagine an 80-year-old senator having the gall to run for another 6-year term, but after over three decades in office, McCain tells us he still has more work to do.  


London poised to elect Muslim mayor today: Has defended terrorists

May 5, 2016

Unrestrained immigration alters demographics, dooms native cultures

Is “So what?” the appropriate response to the fact that London is poised to elect its first Muslim mayor? The Washington Post thinks so.

The distance between Phoenix, Arizona and London, England is well over 5,000 miles, with eight hours separating the two time zones. But there are myriad ties that bind us from shared history and language to our legal system based in part on English common law.

 The Spectator, a British publication, features a report titled, “Muhammad really is the single most popular boys’ name in England and Wales.” The Daily Mail, a well-respected British news source reported in December 2015 on the proliferation of Sharia courts dispensing ‘justice.’ At the time the article was written, there were eighty-five such courts.

Breitbart (London edition) headlines its article, “London is about to elect a Muslim mayor who has defended Islamists, 9/11 terrorists, and who is endorsed by anti-Semites.” That news is definitely worth more than a casual shoulder shrug accompanied by “So what?” Londoners go to the polls today to choose a replacement for the outgoing Mayor, Boris Johnson MP, the conservative who has held the post since 2008. Despite the fact the Labour Party is currently mired in an anti-Semitism scandal, if all things remain equal, expect the party’s candidate Sadiq Khan MP to be confirmed in the early hours of Friday morning. Zac Goldsmith is the conservative candidate.

Regardless of the laissez-faire attitude exhibited by the tolerant-of-everything Washington Post, this is serious business, with far-reaching consequences, as Europeans throughout the continent stand at the brink of becoming minorities in their own countries. Prolific Muslim mass immigration coupled with exceedingly high birth rates will topple the ethnic Europeans and their unique cultures in short order. 

Gatestone Institute identifies “The True Cost of Europe’s Muslim “Enrichment,” pointing to the dire consequences of the demographic changes, coupled with the resistance to assimilation. Country by country the effects of unchecked immigration are staggering. Europe’s immigration/migrant/refugee crisis is not a “So what?”

Neither is ours.

Donald Trump’s repeated vow to “build a wall” has given him the GOP nomination, surprising establishment pundits.
