U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert endorses Dr. Kelli Ward over John McCain

July 28, 2016

Breitbart News carries an impressive commentary* titled,“Time to say thank you and goodbye to Sen. McCain,” in which Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert decisively lays out the facts as he makes his case for replacing John McCain in Arizona’s Aug. 30 Republican Primary Election.

Mincing no words, Gohmert is specific in his choice: Dr. Kelli Ward. Seeing Red AZ has been an enthusiastic supporter of the conservative two-term state senator and family practice physician. In case you missed it, this was our recent post which included McCain’s desperation based, wild assertions against Dr. Ward.

“On August 30th, the prescription that has the best chance of curtailing suffering at home and abroad from the McCain wrongheaded, misguided, heavy-handed judgment is to vote for Dr. Kelli Ward to be the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate,” wrote Gohmert.  “People of the world and the politically non-establishment citizens of the U.S. are praying that the people of Arizona will say, “enough is enough; please come home, John McCain, take a rest, let Arizona, the nation and world recover.”

Take time to read the entire, fact-filled commentary. It contains crucial information.

Congressman Gohmert is a man with a vast array of credentials. Prior to being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, he served three terms as District Judge in Smith County, Texas and then as Chief Justice of the 12th Court of Appeals. A veteran, he attained the rank of Captain in the U.S. Army. Additionally, he is a deacon and Sunday school teacher, frequently guest preaching at Texas congregations.

Taking a page from John McCain’s purge book, Jeff Flake, McCain’s amnesty doppelganger, has called for a purge of all Trump supporters from the Republican Party. Let’s hope Congressman Gohmert remembers the plight of Arizona voters as the aptly named Flake gears up for his senate reelection.

Jeff Flake, John & Meghan McCain: In the tank for Hillary

July 24, 2016

These Republicrat Arizonans put liberals to shame

In this congratulatory tweet, Jeff Flake was unable to contain his glee over liberal Democrat Hillary Clinton’s selection of Tim Kaine as her Vice Presidential running mate. Flake has already made his opposition to Republic standard-bearer Donald Trump abundantly clear.  In fact, the vacuous Flake who seized on opposition to earmarks as his congressional launching pad sounds very much like one casting his lot with Hillary though she never saw a spending scheme she didn’t support. Flake would, of course, be following his mentor John McCain, who referred to Clinton as a “rock star” he could support.

Where do you think the Flake’s vote will go? John McCain’s? The duo partnered on crafting the pro-amnesty for illegals ‘Gang of Eight’ as they colluded with such liberals as Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin. Marco Rubio, unable to defend his participation, suffered a blistering defeat in his presidential bid due to his involvement in this unholy contrivance.

According to the Daily Caller, McCain and Flake are in a race for the least popular senator in the nation prize. McCain polled at 30% and Flake was even lower at 27% among Arizona voters.

Meghan McCain speaking with People magazine said she cried when Donald Trump officially won the Republican nomination for president at the GOP convention on Tuesday. But hers were not tears of joy. The daughter of failed presidential candidate John McCain called the vote to nominate Trump a “garbage election,” and Donald Trump a “garbage candidate,” not representative of her view of the Republican Party.

Obviously familiar with an actual “garbage candidate,” she only registered as a Republican as a Father’s Day surprise for her dad whose disastrous candidacy gave us eight years of Barack Obama.  Now that qualifies as garbage — worthy of crying over.


Meluskey polls at 4% but willing to siphon votes to aid McCain

July 20, 2016

AZ U.S. Senate candidate Meluskey hides from GOP label

Modeling himself after John McCain, Alex Meluskey has novel ways of asking for campaign donations. After previously addressing email recipients with a boorish “Hey,” he derisively lectures potential donors, “it’s time we all have skin in the game.”  What Meluskey is actually saying is that his mainly self-funded campaign is running out of $team. According to the most recent FEC filings, 86.4% of his campaign has been self funded. Only 9% of his money comes from itemized individual contributions — a short list filled with relatives, retirees, and out-of-state donors. Operating expenditures are high — donors sparse.

Meluskey, obviously not generating the money necessary to run a formidable campaign, characterizes himself as a “conservative outsider.” He hits it out of the park with the outsider description, since he only registered as a Republican when he decided to run. Previously he was a PND — Party Not Designated. The descriptive term “Republican” is missing from his website and literature. Prior to gearing up for this race, he’s shown zero interest in the Republican Party.  Meluskey also plays fast and loose with the truth, distorting the record and photo images of Dr. Kelli Ward, as he pretentiously compares himself to Ronald Reagan.

This PPP survey of Arizona voters shows John McCain at “serious risk of losing the nomination,” polling at only 39% in the Republican primary field. He’s benefiting from having multiple opponents as enabler Meluskey is keenly aware. Many political observers believe that’s exactly why he’s in the race.

Censured by elected leaders of his own party, John McCain has not only worn out his welcome among Arizona voters, he is viewed as the least popular U.S. Senator nationwide. That’s a record McCain has to fight to maintain, since his doppelgänger Jeff Flake previously won the undesirable prize just three months after taking office. Arizonans don’t deserve one such embarrassment — let alone two.

Rather than assisting an actual conservative, Meluskey appears to be  working double time to either keep the status quo or aid Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick.

Polling shows Dr. Kelli Ward at 26%, Alex Meluskey at 4% and Clair Van Steenwyk at 2% with 27% undecided. In a head-to-head match up between McCain and Ward, the two are tied at 41%. Ward is polling this competitively at this point despite having lesser name recognition. A former state senator and a Lake Havasu City physician, she has the experience to retool Obamacare and the integrity to make Arizonans proud of their senate representation. After repeatedly being directed to drink the amnesty Kool Aid by  Sens. Kyl, McCain and Flake, wouldn’t that be a novel concept for Arizonans?

It’s critical that voters get up to speed on the ongoing deception. SRAZ has covered Meluskey previously in these posts:

McCain skips convention to dine with open borders CofC

July 19, 2016

Chambers of Commerce have an agenda to import low wage foreign workers and McCain fulfills it

If you’re wondering where John McCain is during the Republican National Convention set to endorse the presidential nomination of Donald Trump, wonder no more. At age 80, McCain is desperately trying to hang on to the U.S. Senate seat he’s occupied for another 6-year term. 

McCain was first elected in 1982, before many Arizona voters were even born.

The convention-boycotting McCain spoke at a luncheon hosted by the Prescott, Prescott Valley and Chino Valley Chambers of Commerce on Monday. Today McCain is speaking at a luncheon put on by Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce, and on Thursday he’ll be chowing down at another lunch event sponsored by the Kingman Area Chamber of Commerce.

Amnesty supporting John McCain has the support of the dangerous Open Border U.S. Chambers of Commerce and a ‘who’s who’ list of special interest lobbyists * in Washington, D.C.

Despite wildly outspending his conservative challenger Dr. Kelli Ward, McCain finds himself in a  in a dead heat with her and facing an embarrassing forced retirement.  We all know it’s past time to retire the ancient deceiver who runs as a Republican and votes with the Democrats while advancing Obama’s agenda. Kelli Ward needs to get her message out.  You can be a valuable asset in helping make U.S. Senator Kelli Ward a reality.  Do what you can. This is vitally important.

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.


McCain sabotaged by pal Lindsey Grahamnesty

July 7, 2016

Grahamnesy_revives_amnesty_Gangsters

As John McCain, at age 80, is gasping for political oxygen to sustain his final campaign for another 6-year term, his amnesty supporting fellow traveler Lindsey Graham is undermining McCain’s aspirations with a blatant pledge to revive the “Gang of 8” amnesty bill immediately after Election Day.  This means if McCain is reelected, he will once again be front and center on the irrational issue that rewards illegals with U.S. citizenship, which has been his focus since his 2005 collusion on amnesty with Ted Kennedy. It is also why he was censured by Arizona Republican elected officials in 2015.

Without a doubt, this is the last thing McCain wants dogging him as he fends off a no-nonsense conservative challenger, Dr. Kelli Ward, a family practice doctor, whose pledge to actually secure our border resonates with Arizonans, all too tired of the lies, insults and sarcasm.(watch this brief video to it’s conclusion.)

Graham’s statement is not an insignificant slip-up, but a full-scale blunder as it relates to McCain. Arizona senators have a history of perfecting their pre-election border two-step in order to skunk inattentive voters. Jon Kyl deceptively cast himself as a border hawk, as have John McCain and Jeff Flake in politically expedient reversals of their actual amnesty positions. It’s the political equivalent of a straying spouse pledging fidelity as the betrayal continues.

Although the Republicrat establishment and Democrat machinery is set to roll for another shot at amnesty in 2017 — which proponents cunningly call “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” though it has nothing to do with actual immigrants, who arrive legally. Not surprisingly, Politico reports McCain refused to discuss the possibility of another attempt to shove this costly and job killing abomination down our throats. This is Politico’s understatement: “The 2008 presidential nominee, who faces an unexpectedly tough reelection race this year, has long championed immigration reform, albeit with occasional lurches to the right.”

“All I focus on is my election. Then I set the agenda for the next year,” said McCain, the slippery former Gang of Eight architect. “I’m very superstitious about that.”

You can bet he’s working on that “agenda” right now, even as the accommodating and deceptively named Grassroots Arizona PAC funded by RINOs and out-of-state Obama donors distorts challenger Kelli Ward’s image and views.  Don’t give him a chance to implement that agenda. Cast your ballot for Dr. Kelli Ward.

BHO lawyer who harassed Sheriff Joe on Hillary’s VP list

July 5, 2016

Hillary considering the disasterous Thomas Perez as running mate

Desperate Democrats, all too aware that their nominee Hillary Clinton is widely perceived as dishonest — even among fellow Democrats — have rolled out an “I Trust Hillary” campaign. Among the liberal loyalists making appearances on the Sunday news shows attempting to boost her sagging image was Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez. Arizonans will remember Perez as Obama’s Civil Rights Division lawyer who conducted a three-year harassment campaign, purporting to be an investigation, of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Perez’ efforts culminated in a politically motivated lawsuit against Arpaio and his office for enforcing the provisions of SB 1070, a now gutted state law eviscerated by overreaching judges.

Tom Tancredo, a former five-term congressman, presidential candidate and author of “In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America’s Border and Security,” reintroduces Thomas Perez in this important commentary for WND, titled “Obama’s Harassment of Sheriff Joe.”  Even the sharpest memories can use refreshing. Do yourself a favor and read it.

Perez is so unworthy of support that when Obama rewarded him for his reprehensible assault on Sheriff Arpaio by promoting him to Secretary of Labor, the confirmation roll call vote was historic in that it was strictly along party lines. Given that Arizona’s Republicrat senators voted to confirm leftists Janet Napolitano, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, (Flake and McCain split their votes on Loretta Lynch) and frequently supported liberals to the federal judiciary, the fact that even they — no fans of career law enforcement professional Joe Arpaio — withheld their votes for Perez’ confirmation speaks volumes.

What also is worthy of note is that Thomas Perez is reportedly on Hillary’s short list as a Vice Presidential pick. Any Never-Trumpers with concerns about our dangerously porous border, the astronomical burdens to American taxpayers and loss of national sovereignty should  take note of the expansion of laxity with this calamitous selection.
