McCain quandary: Court Latino voters or support Trump?

May 24, 2016

McCain goes all out for Hispanics, will blame loss on Trump

TPM  DC examines three GOP U.S. Senate races — John McCain’s among them — and their schizophrenic courting of Hispanic voters while attempting to keep Donald Trump supporters on board their campaigns.  It’s a dicey road for the candidates from Arizona, Florida and Nevada.

McCain, so intensely unpopular both nationally and with Arizona’s grassroots conservative base, that he was censured by elected state delegates at the Statutory Republican Party Meeting — later the object of his retaliatory attempts to purge them by using an out-of-state Obama donor — is now fighting for his political life.  His latest tactic is to blame Donald Trump for his woes, (audio obtained by Politico) rather than admit that he is reviled by Republicans who view him with contempt.

John McCain, who has courted the racist LaRaza (“The Race”) and had “Mexico First” Juan Hernandez as an integral part of his failed presidential bid, currently has a Hispanic outreach team, Unidos Con McCain, in place to garner the votes of those who are more concerned with the continued flow of illegals than national security. He announced three AZ Hispanic leaders would co-chair the committee and hired a local Telemundo reporter to serve as his Hispanic outreach director. The team has been traveling Arizona, organizing bilingual door knocking activities and setting up Spanish-speaking phone banking. English-speaking American taxpayers get the back of McCain’s gnarled hand.

The ever-opportunistic Jason Rose, who the leftist TPM claims “ran” JD Hayworth’s 2010 Primary challenge to McCain, now does a “complete 180,” explaining how McCain has been effective in reaching out to the Latino Community in his desperate attempt at re-election this year.

Actually Rose has spent an entire PR career making a bee-line for money, no matter the source or the ideological bent. When Hayworth discovered Rose’s affiliation with Open Borders efforts in Texas, not to mention his sense of the Flack’s inability to employ any sense of discretion, the former Congressman chose others to operate his senate campaign. Rose promptly went on a “Twitter rant,” demeaning Hayworth’s efforts.

Then, Rose and his lawyer wife, Jordan, fell over themselves getting back into the good graces of John McCain — including making donations to the very campaign Rose at one point hoped to defeat.

The 80-year-old running for another 6-year senate term is as opportunistic and devoid of ethical encumbrances as the PR operative, so it’s not surprising that Rose has found a role vouching for the very senior senator’s “virtue” and his appeals for “diversity.”

But that “diversity” is instead “divisiveness.” It has divided the GOP; it has sidetracked efforts to secure the border; it has ignored the national security imperative of ending illegal immigration.

McCain hopes to con Arizonans one last time — and Rose looks for his next thirty pieces of silver. Quite a team.


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.


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.


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!


SOS Kerry affirms left’s view: USA is inconsequential

May 8, 2016

National borders are meaningless, we must prepare for “borderless world”

Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry confirms the left’s position that American sovereignty is inconsequential in the commencement address he gave  at  Boston’s Northeastern University — an institution which emphasizes globalism.

“The future demands from us something more than a nostalgia for some rose-tinted version of the past that did not really exist in any case,” Kerry told the graduates. “You’re about to graduate into a complex and borderless world.”

Kerry also used the occasion of the school’s 114th commencement  to hammer Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump without mentioning him by name, but honing in on Trump’s stated plan to build a wall along the U.S./Mexico border:

“So I think that everything that we’ve lived and learn tells us that we will never come out on top if we accept advice from sound-bite salesmen and carnival barkers who pretend the most powerful country on Earth can remain great by looking inward. And hiding behind walls at a time that technology has made that impossible to do and unwise to even attempt.”

Kerry is known for marrying heiresses but speaking foolishly, as evidenced by these examples. provided by Red Eye. He will also be remembered for his association with Jane Fonda and his deceitful congressional testimony regarding American military personnel serving in Vietnam.

John Kerry: the ultimate  self-promoting liberal hack.


McCain plays CYA: Tries blaming Trump in advance of his loss

May 6, 2016

McCain can blame his dubious reelection chances on Trump and angry Hispanics, but it’s the fed up GOP conservatives who are prepared to toss him to the curb

At a private fundraiser last month, John McCain warned attendees that Donald Trump as the GOP nominee could antagonize Latino voters in Arizona, making his reelection campaign “the race of my life.”

POLITICO reports that publicly, John McCain insists Donald Trump will have a negligible effect on his campaign for reelection. But behind closed doors at a fundraiser in Arizona last month, the Republican senator and two-time presidential hopeful offered a far more dire assessment to his supporters.

“If Donald Trump is at the top of the ticket, here in Arizona, with over 30 percent of the vote being the Hispanic vote, no doubt that this may be the race of my life,” McCain said, according to a recording of the event obtained by POLITICO. “If you listen or watch Hispanic media in the state and in the country, you will see that it is all anti-Trump. The Hispanic community is roused and angry in a way that I’ve never seen in 30 years, ” he said.

Once again McCain’s got it wrong. It’s not Hispanics who are aroused and angry.  It’s  conservative Republicans who are tired of being on the receiving end of McCain’s vengeful wrath as he colluded with liberals — including a top Obama donor — to oust longtime Party activists from their elected precinct committeemen posts. It’s conservative Republicans who resent having him target them for IRS scrutiny as he conspired with Democrats in the Obama administration and his leftist senate  colleagues. The embarrassment of statewide intra-party censures infuriated him.

McCain has forged deep inroads with the ambitious AZ GOP chairman, Robert Graham, whose loyalty extends to those he thinks can benefit him.  It’s one hand washing the other, but the water is murky and there is no soap strong enough to sanitize the fetid stench. 

Running for another 6-year term at age 80, is obscene, but nothing fazes McCain. That’s why he can lie about the border fence one day and the following day he and his underling Jeff Flake can cobbled together the Gang of Eight amnesty hacks and even endorse one of them, Marco Rubio, for president of the United States.
