McCain in deep trouble as Dr. Kelli Ward ties in poll

May 25, 2016

AZ U.S. Senate race is THE crucial election to watch

Dr. Kelli Ward is grabbing the spotlight in the Arizona U.S. Senate race as she picks up national endorsements and impresses crowds around the state.

At age 80 and running for his sixth 6-year senate term, John McCain appears to be experiencing more memory lapses, as he neglects to acknowledge there is a Primary Election that precedes the General. He conveniently characterizes his opponent as Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick, as he tries his damnedest to ignore the Constitutional conservative family physician and former two-term state senator, Kelli Ward. 

It’s easy to see why.

Breitbart reports on the results of a new poll showing Kelli Ward in a tie with McCain as they head into the August 30 Primary. The poll shows Ward leading among self-identified “conservative” voters as McCain appeals to politically squishy “moderates.” McCain and Ward are tied at 41-41 percent in a head-to-head match-up, despite the fact that Ward currently has lower name recognition. For those needing more information, Conservative Review introduces Dr. Ward, calling her “anti-amnesty“ in its headline.

Gun Owners of America has given Dr. Ward its endorsement.  GOA’s Executive Director Larry Pratt stated, “Senator McCain does not respect the Constitution. He is so irritable and so dislikes being criticized that he actually tried to eliminate the First Amendment 60 days before an election, namely the McCain-Feingold Act.”

As far back as May 2002, McCain, the man who said, “I know how to use guns; but I don’t own one,” called for Republican “tolerance” for closing what he refers to as “gun show loopholes,” as he caved to the leftwing Brady gun control campaign.

In this Issue Paper provided by David B. Kopel and Alan Korwin, Section IV explains the facts behind those so-called “loopholes.”


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. 


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

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


The “Religion of Peace” has struck again

March 28, 2016

Unfathomable atrocity: Today we read that Islamic terrorists have crucified a Catholic priest in Yemen over Easter weekend

Former Republican Congressman and presidential candidate Tom Tancredo is among the few to credit with bringing the issue of illegal immigration to the forefront back when it was barely a blip on the national radar. Hearing him passionately address the invasion a couple of decades ago provided the prominence needed to thrust it into public consciousness and ultimately drive the 2016 presidential debate.

Placement of the word “former” is not in error. Last October the onetime Republican Congressman had his fill of the Grand Old Party under whose banner he had run and been elected from 1999 to 2009. His rationale for leaving was posted on Breitbart.  Tancredo summed up his decision with these thoughts although his complete commentary is exceedingly enlightening.

  1. The Republican establishment does not want to control spending.
  2. It does not want to secure the borders or enforce immigration laws.
  3. It does not care about American sovereignty.
  4. It has no interest in ending the unaccountable and corrupt culture that has become a hallmark of official Washington.

As a presidential candidate Tom Tancredo, who built his campaign on stopping illegal immigration, boycotted the Dec. 9, 2007 Univision televised debate at the University of Miami because it was being broadcast in Spanish. The rest of the pack attended, including John McCain.

Now Tom Tancredo has written a blunt commentary, which we highly recommend,  titled, The ISIS Barbarians Are Already Inside our Gates.  

Tancredo states:

“ It is Islam’s basic worldview that inspires hatred of the West, not grievances against U.S. foreign policy or lack of economic opportunity in Muslim societies. The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928, not 1988, decades before any American soldier set foot in Kuwait. Why then is it “Islamophobic” to speak the truth about Islam’s hostility to Western values?” Tancredo asks. “Self-censorship is the main obstacle to effective steps to halt ISIS in its tracks, and people who preach such nonsense — and the Quislings who tolerate it — are aiding ISIS and need to be called out for it.”

Tom Tancredo effectively calls them out  —  loud and clear.


McCain: Talking out of both sides of his mouth again

March 24, 2016

Worried that he’s finally worn out his welcome, as his decades of lies and distortions have come back to haunt him, John McCain is sending out desperate pleas for donations to fund his latest six-year senate campaign. At 80, he’s quite the optimist.

In his most recent begging missive he acts as if Arizona citizens have fallen prey to a plague of amnesia, as he attempts to make the fallacious case that he aggressively fought Obamacare. In fact, he did worse than nothing — he actually defended what he “more politely” called the “Affordable Care Act, saying “elections have consequences” and “we should respect the process.” This double talk was in response to Sen. Ted Cruz’ filibuster of the bill that had to be passed before it could be seen.

John McCain was so enamored with Obama’s selection of Sylvia Mathews Burwell as secretary of Health and Human Services, the agency tasked with implementing the fundamentally flawed Obamacare, that he showed up at her Senate confirmation hearing although he isn’t a member of the Senate panel that vetted her nomination.

Reading the local news would lead the marginally informed to think McCain is being challenged by Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick, an on-again, off-again CD 1 U.S. Rep. who was bounced out of office after her first term and made a comeback when U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar relocated to CD 4 where he easily won reelection. The wizened McCain likely won’t have to worry about Kirkpatrick. Arizona Republicans are ready to call in the doctor…Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and conservative, two-term former state senator who would knowledgeably work to reconfigure the medical monstrosity via her Patient Power Plan.

Check out her issues page and send her a donation. John McCain has curried the favor of lobbyists for decades. They eagerly keep funneling money to him. Kelli Ward can only be competitive with our help. John McCain was censured by elected state committeemen of his own party. The McEmbarrassment, who has spent his career colluding with Democrats can be put behind us with the election of Dr. Kelli Ward. We have a rare opportunity to make a difference.  Let’s do it!.


Former MC Chair AJ LaFaro’s resolution demands Robert Graham resign

March 15, 2016

Resolution for AZGOP State Convention scheduled for April 30, 2016

Immediate past Maricopa County Republican Chairman A. J. LaFaro writes: In accordance with the Continuing Bylaws of the Arizona Republican Party Article VI Section F. Resolutions, I am submitting the attached resolution entitled, “AZGOP State Convention Delegates’ Resolution Demanding Chairman Robert Graham Resign.”

The resolution is 248 words and is being submitted at least 45 days before the Arizona Republican Party’s (AZGOP) 2016 State Convention being held on April 30, 2016.  I expect the resolution be immediately forwarded to the Resolutions Committee Chairman and Committee Members with an e-mail acknowledgement of receipt being sent to me at aj_ml@hotmail.com

I also expect the submitted resolution be sent to each delegate and alternate with the call of the state convention in accordance with the Continuing Bylaws of the Arizona Republican Party Article VI Section F(2) Procedures.

Given Robert Graham’s and the AZGOP’s repeated track record of deceit and obstructionism, I have blind copied several Republican leaders here in Arizona and at the RNC as “witnesses” in hopes this resolution isn’t sabotaged like resolutions were in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

I also encourage those individuals to volunteer to be the Chairman and Committee Members of the Resolutions Committee so the chicanery Robert Graham and Chad Heywood pulled in 2014 and 2015 doesn’t happen again. And let’s not forget the serious ethics violations and chicanery perpetrated by Al Gage, Robert Graham and the AZGOP at the Arizona Republican Party’s (AZGOP) Annual Meeting that was held on January 23, 2016.

Please note that Al Gage, Robert Graham and the AZGOP are currently under investigation for serious ethics violations of Robert’s Rules of Order and the AZGOP Bylaws based on an extensive complaint that was filed with the appropriate authorities
shortly after the January 23, 2016, meeting.

A. J. LaFaro
LD18 Precinct and State Committeeman

AZGOP State Convention Delegates’ Resolution  Demanding Chairman Robert Graham Resign

We, the 2016 State Convention Delegates of the Arizona Republican Party (AZGOP) are obligated to hold all of our leaders accountable for their actions.  Only in times of great crisis or betrayal is it necessary to publicly censure our leaders. Today we are faced with both in as much Robert Graham is by far one of the worst Party Chairman the AZGOP has ever endured.  So with conviction we rise and declare:

WHEREAS, Chairman Robert Graham

has continued to violate the Arizona Revised Statutes, the Bylaws of the Arizona Republican Party, the bylaws of several of the County and Legislative District Republican Committees, and the latest Edition of Robert’s Rules of Order; and 

has repeatedly disregarded and disrespected the will of an overwhelming majority of the AZGOP State and Precinct Committeemen; and

has conducted dictatorial actions that have been calculated and an insidious conspiracy – including but not limited to the AZGOP 2016 State Convention – for his personal benefit, the benefit of his cronies and the Republican establishment cabal. 

BE IT RESOLVED that Robert Graham’s constant intimidation, bullying, overreach and unilateral policies will no longer be tolerated;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED the AZGOP State Convention Delegates censure Robert Graham for his continued disservice to our Party, State and Nation;

BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED the AZGOP State Convention Delegates have lost confidence in Robert Graham, will no longer support him or his actions and demand his immediate resignation.


Mark Levin endorses Ted Cruz for President

March 10, 2016

“I want to make it very clear. The Republican Establishment is as diabolical as it’s ever been.” — Mark Levin

Conservative author and talk show host Mark Levin christened his newly launched LevinTV, with an announcement of his support for Ted Cruz, as the next president of the United States.

Levin, said that Cruz supports and fights for the “Constitution, the Republic, individual sovereignty, separation of powers, the Bill of Rights, family, faith, a secure border, and our national security.”

He stated that he knows Cruz isn’t perfect, but looking at the “whole picture” and looking at the entire career of Cruz it really is “a simple decision.”

Levin went on to say that his support of Cruz isn’t because of opposition to Donald TrumpJohn Kasich, or Marco Rubio. Instead, it is because Cruz understands “where this country has been and where it needs to go.”

Levin also said that if Cruz secures the GOP nomination, Cruz would win because facing Hillary he would know how to defeat her and know how to win.
