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.


Gov. Ducey endorses his first boss’s husband

July 16, 2016

Gov. Doug Ducey has endorsed eighty-year-old John McCain, who is running for his sixth six-year U.S. Senate term. If the very senior, left-leaning “maverick” is reelected and serves out the term, he’ll be staring 90 in the eye. 

Can’t we do better than this, governor? (video) 

Arizona’s governor was still a teenager living in Ohio when McCain first ran for congress in what was then Congressional District One in the East Valley.

Could it be that Ducey is repaying this lukewarm endorsement McCain gave him on Primary Election night 2014 as McCain claimed Democrat “Fred DuVal will be a very formidable candidate”? In fact DuVal trailed in all fifteen Arizona counties.

But the larger point is Ducey owes his former boss Cindy Hensley McCain. Although Ducey back-burners it, after moving to Arizona in the 1980’s to attend Arizona State University he worked for Cindy’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship during his college years. 

Worthy of note is the fact that McCain rolled out the Ducey endorsement after Luis Gonzalez’. McCain is obviously going for the sports minded voter rather than the politically knowledgeable. He’s all too aware that those who are paying attention will be voting for proven conservative, Dr. Kelli Ward in the Republican Primary.


GOP Senator aids Obama’s ‘far left’ pick to head Library of Congress

July 14, 2016

Jeff Flake supports confirmation of Obama’s questionable selection; candidate McCain can’t afford to follow suit

The Daily Signal, the Heritage Foundation’s investigative reporting arm, provides an important insight into the recent vote to confirm Carla D. Hayden, 63, as the 14th librarian of Congress.

Conservative critics of Barack Obama’s nominee were blindsided Wednesday when Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt a key Republican, engineered her lopsided confirmation by the Senate despite concerns she is, in the words of one opponent, “an unqualified, far-left progressive.”

Critics say Hayden falls short of the scholarly credentials traditionally expected of the nation’s librarian of Congress.

Despite recommendations to the contrary, Blunt, chairman of the Rules and Administration Committee, scheduled a June 9 committee vote recommending Hayden’s confirmation to the full Senate. Wednesday, the Senate voted 74-18 to confirm Hayden.

“Hayden has made a name for herself in the far-left community as a radical activist,” the conservative group Concerned Women for America wrote Blunt and the committee before that vote. “This position is not one for radical activism, but for academic honesty and integrity.”

The group made these points in a series of letters to Blunt and other members of the Rules Committee in opposition to Hayden’s nomination. In a letter dated June 7, the group wrote:

“Dr. Hayden does not possess the credentials necessary to act as the librarian of Congress, as shown by President Obama’s decision to highlight her race and gender in his nomination speech, not her academic accomplishments. Additionally, Dr. Hayden has made a name for herself in the far-left community as a radical activist.”

Prior to  the Senate vote, Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, called Hayden “an unqualified, far-left progressive,” declaring “Republicans should be very concerned about what her confirmation could mean for the Congressional Research Service, which is the research arm from which they get unbiased, nonpartisan research.”  

“This is someone so far to the left that The Nation magazine ran a headline when she was nominated about how a ‘radical librarian’ may soon run the Library of Congress,” von Spakovsky said in an interview just hours before Blunt’s unexpected move to bring the nomination to the Senate floor.

Hayden succeeds Dr. James Billington, a Reagan appointee who served 28 years before retiring last fall.

The Library of Congress — the world’s largest library — with an annual budget of $630 million and about 3,200 employees, controls the nation’s Copyright Office as well as the Congressional Research Service. The library also provides members of Congress with legal advice.

Although Hayden may be qualified to serve in the public library system, the librarian of Congress is a unique, distinct position that should be occupied by well-credentialed scholars and authors, Heritage’s von Spakovsky told The Daily Signal.

When they think we aren’t looking, Republicrats reveal their actual left wing bent. They campaign as conservatives in their home states and turn blue on the banks of the Potomac without ever touching as much as a toe in the icy water. That’s what earned Jeff Flake and John McCain an “F” rating from Conservative Review.


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.
