Congressman J.D. Hayworth is on the move!

April 26, 2015

For more than a year now, J.D. Hayworth has been an Anchor/Commentator for Newsmax TV. Beginning Tuesday, April 28, he’ll be moving to Prime Time.

“Newsmax Prime with J.D. Hayworth” premieres this coming Tuesday at 8pm, Eastern/5pm, Pacific.  The program will repeat for J.D.’s friends and former constituents in Arizona (not to mention the rest of the West) each night at 8pm, Pacific/11pm, Eastern.

Newsmax TV is now available in over 40 million homes.  It is seen on Ch. 349 (DirecTV); Ch. 223 (Dish); Ch. 115 (Verizon FiOS) or here on your computer with streaming video at www.newsmaxtv.com

Hayworth once described himself as the 2010 “One Man Economic Stimulus Package” for Arizona, as he prompted “Campaign Finance Reform Champion” John McCain to take advantage of a loophole, and raid the taxpayer-subsidized 2008 Presidential Campaign Fund for $20 million of the $30 million spent overall to defeat Hayworth in a bitterly fought Republican Senatorial Primary.

He remains the only Arizonan in history to serve on the powerful Ways and Means Committee.  His appointment to that powerful panel came at the outset of his second term in the House of Representatives, where he served for 12 years.


So very Sowell: Conservative genius takes on AZ Leftist Grijalva

April 19, 2015

Take time to read Dr. Thomas Sowell’s most recent column, ‘The New Inquisition.’

Marching in lockstep on the very debatable topic of “global warming” is the issue as Marxist U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, who runs as a Democrat, attempts to silence scientists whose free speech and divergent views interfere with his extremist political agenda. The Arizona Congressman has been writing to universities, demanding financial records showing who is financing the research of dissenting scientists, and demanding their internal communications as well. This is political correctness run amok and the right to dissent being shut down.

This letter posted on WUWT is an example of Grijalva’s witch hunting techniques in which he uses the signature Alinskyite tactics of the community organizer he once was.

The Daily Caller’s video points to 2014 as another year without global warming.—-  joining  219 months with no significant upward temperature trend.


Kelli Ward opens U.S. Senate Exploratory Committee

April 9, 2015

Accomplished McCain challenger steps forth

Kelli_Ward

Read her statement which begins with these encouraging words:

Dear Friends and Supporters:

I am pleased to announce that I am exploring a run for the US Senate in 2016! I’ve started the Ward Exploratory Committee in order to test the waters and I hope you will help me make my decision.

As I look to the future, I am receiving huge support from the grassroots, encouraging me to consider a run for the US Senate in 2016. Because of the outcry for a new, positive, principled voice for Arizona in Washington, I am moving to test the waters in regard to this challenging opportunity to determine if the financial and political paths to victory really do exist.

If, during this period, it is revealed that the support exists for a U.S. Senate run, I would run to give Arizona a powerful voice in the fight against Obamacare. I would run to stand up for the enforcement of our immigration laws and to secure the border. I would run to support the Constitution, smaller government and individual liberty. I would run as a positive, passionate, principled non-career politician. I would run to join a fresh, new generation of leaders in DC and end the stronghold that career politicians have had on our government for decades. I would run to be the voice that so many Arizonans long for from their representation in the US Senate. I would run to be your voice.

Her letter continues here

She can’t take on this massive campaign without our help.  We need to step up to the plate and put our money where our mouths are in order to send John McCain into retirement. He doesn’t want to go.

Do the right thing. Do it now.

Conservatives work to “Replace John McCain”

April 9, 2015

Senate Conservatives Fund and Conservative Review agree: Arizona deserves principled leadership

In response to John McCain’s reelection campaign announcement (our coverage here) that he is seeking a sixth six-year term in the U.S. Senate, Ken Cuccinelli, President of the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF), has the principled answer to bring sanity back to Arizona’s political scene. 

The SCF’s fact-filled web page “Replace John McCain” opens with these truths:

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) officially announced [today] that he will seek a sixth term in the U.S. Senate. Thirty years of cutting deals with the Democrats is not enough for Senator McCain; he wants six more.

There are few Republicans who have betrayed our conservative principles more than John McCain. He wrote the McCain-Kennedy and “Gang of Eight” immigration bills that offered amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. He voted for the Wall Street bailout, to fund the implementation of Obamacare, for the $600 billion “fiscal cliff” tax hike, and to raise the debt limit 14 different times!

John McCain lost his way a long time ago and it’s time to replace him with a strong conservative leader who will support and defend the Constitution.

 “If we’re going to save this great country,” writes Cuccinelli, “we need to elect true conservative leaders who will stand and fight for our principles. Being a U.S. Senator is not an entitlement and Republican voters in Arizona deserve a real choice.”

It’s no surprise the trustworthy and forthright Senate Conservatives Fund was named the Top Conservative PAC in America during the 2014 election cycle. SCF is funded by the grassroots. The average contribution amount to SCF is just $45 and individuals are prohibited from giving more than $5,000 per calendar year.

Conservative Review, another ethical conservative group, analyzed key votes and gave both Arizona senators an “F” rating. Due to staggered terms, only John McCain will appear on the 2016 ballot. Our votes for Arizona’s senator have never been more crucial. When national conservative groups weigh in against the Republican candidate, that fact becomes crystal clear.

 Join the cause.  It matters. Now more than ever.

Cruz: Quick on his feet on Obamacare, conservatism

March 25, 2015

Since Ted Cruz’ Monday announcement of his candidacy for President of the United States, the MSM has been posed to discredit him or cause him to stumble.  His appearance on “CBS This Morning” Tuesday was proof positive.

But the Texas Senator was more than ready for the bombardment when network correspondent Vladimir Duthiers pounced, asking Cruz if he would “take away” the health care of 16 millions of Americans insured under Obamacare if he was elected president

“Well, you know, those numbers don’t tell the whole picture,” Cruz calmly responded. “For one thing, the bulk of those numbers are coming from expanded Medicaid. And Medicaid is a program where a lot of people who are on Medicaid are not getting health care. Medicaid is a system that is already overburdened and more and more people are just getting waiting lists and not actually getting health care.”

Cruz added, “Beyond that, remember six million people had their health insurance canceled because of Obamacare. You are not doing someone a favor if you cancel the health insurance they like, and then force them to buy new health insurance at higher premiums that covers less.

The newly declared Republican candidate also noted that Obamacare is the “single largest job killer” in the United States.

And try as they might to elicit a misstep, Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King also found him unflappable. 

Nice start.

McCain vulnerable in 2016: All eyes on Sen. Kelli Ward

March 14, 2015

Breitbart News runs this “Exclusive” report titled, “GOP Primary campaign against weakened John McCain by AZ Republicans increasingly likely.”  Conservative Republicans living in Arizona have grown ever more dissatisfied with the liberal antics of this over-the-hill self-anointed “maverick” who has not represented us for decades. The ire has erupted into censure resolutions at various county meetings and at the annual state Republican Statutory meeting of elected delegates —- who clearly have had their fill of John McCain.

Matthew Boyle, writing for Breitbart, muses that U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ CD-5) is eyeing a challenge to McCain. When Salmon considered such a run in 2010, the word in political circles was he had gotten the horse’s-head-in-the-bed message and prudently left his aspirations unfulfilled. McCain is nothing if not ruthless when confronted and has no compunctions about lying to briefly configure himself as a conservative when election season rolls around.  It would be a major stunner if Salmon throws caution to the winds this time around.

McCain wins with the votes of the state’s senior population and newcomers who recognize his ubiquitous name and have little other information. His key advantage is the disengaged, apathetic voter.

Sen. Kelli Ward is another story. An accomplished woman —- a physician —- serving her second term in the Arizona senate, she has been traveling the state, sizing up her support. Unlike McCain, who receives jeers, boos and turned backs, she has been met with enthusiastic crowds who see her conservative perspective as manna from political heaven.

Ward told Breitbart News she thinks Congress needs more doctors like her, “people in the trenches who actually want to fight Obamacare not ‘yes men’ who want to keep socializing our medical system and leading to single-payer, that’s no good for patients, no good for doctors, no good for anybody.”

Kelli Ward’s husband Mike is a surgeon as well as a Colonel in the AZ Air National Guard where he serves as Arizona’s State Air Surgeon. The couple have three children and reside in Lake Havasu City, where Sen. Ward  represents Legislative District 5.

Over two weeks ago we posted “AZ 2016 U.S. Senate race takes bright, right turn,” detailing the emergence of KelliPAC, an  Independent Expenditure Committee put together by supporters of Kelly Ward, hoping to coax her into taking on McCain.

Seeing Red AZ shares their enthusiasm. It’s time to move forward with a conservative winner.
