Dr. Kelli Ward & Prof. David Brat: Upsets can happen

November 28, 2015

Bucking the establishment: The new political reality

U.S. Rep. David Brat was never supposed to be serving in Congress. But he is. In what appeared an unlikely Goliath vs. David race, the conservative college economics professor took on the disconnected and arrogant RINO House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Yet despite Cantor’s 26-to-1 cash advantage, as Politico reports, Brat beat him in a historic GOP primary upset. Brat’s decisive intra-party victory over Cantor made him the first primary challenger to oust a sitting House Majority Leader since the position’s creation in 1899.

Here in Arizona, conservatives are sensing a similar scenario. Dr. Kelli Ward, an emergency room physician and two term state senator, is gaining steam in the 2016 U.S. Senate race.

Ward is the newly announced recipient of this enthusiastic endorsement from the Conservative Campaign Committee (CCC). Breitbart reports the group sent out an email urging PAC supporters to back Ward, a Lake Havasu City conservative, against John McCain.

Breitbart cites the list of grievances against the liberal McCain, and notes Sen. Ward’s first quarter fundraising, an achievement it states “that at least in recent history has only been outdone by Sen. Ted Cruz.

“The momentum is building for Conservative Republican Kelli Ward and with your help we can win this race! The most recent Gravis Marketing Survey shows Kelli Ward leading John McCain among Republican voters by a 9-point margin, 45% – 36%,” reads a portion of the CCC PAC message.

 As a practicing physician, Dr. Ward understands the negative impact of Obamacare on America’s citizens and outlines a plan to repeal the costly and care-rationing monstrosity.  Remember Democrat Nancy Pelosi told us, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it — away from the fog of the controversy.”

As our Friday post we ran “McLosers featured at Mesa campaign rally,“ referencing the extreme measures Team McCain is taking in an effort to fill the house at his upcoming campaign event. They have resorted to announcing the “surprise special guest” — Mitt Romney — two weeks in advance of the actual program.  

Visit the comment section to see two brief but stellar videos posted by SRAZ readers that flawlessly exemplify John McCain. SRAZ has an entire section “McStench” dedicated to Arizona’s pro-amnesty senior senator, who will be 80 by Election Day and is running for another 6-year term. He says he still has more to do.

After more than three decades of his colluding with the left, Arizona ‘s citizens who desire a truthful senator, not a self-proclaimed “maverick,” have already had all they can stomach.

McLosers featured at Mesa campaign rally

McCain’s “surprise special guest” revealed in early desperation move

No doubt the suspense has been unbearable for recipients of John McCain’s emails. They’ve been teased and had their curiosity piqued with notices about a “surprise special guest” coming to Mesa, Dec. 12, to give the recycled candidate, who will be 80 by election day, a boost for another 6-year term. 

Who could such a person be? Maybe Sarah Palin, McCain’s former running mate who was savaged by his 2008 campaign operatives as he fell in the polls. It’s safe to say no Republican with a viable current campaign would want the taint that accompanies the toxic, censured senator, who spitefully retaliated against conservatives by teaming up with Obama donors to oust them as elected precinct committeemen. In another move against conservatives, McCain also colluded with liberal Democrat Carl Levin in pressuring Obama IRS’s Lois Lerner to target tea party groups for scrutiny in an effort to rein in their political influence.

It’s not a surprise that John McCain is Number Six on Roll Call’s roster of the 10 most vulnerable U.S. senators.

The Mesa venue isn’t filling as quickly as McCain’s handlers had hoped, which is another  embarrassment to his already bruised ego. Prior to the censures, while running for president, he barely carried the state of Arizona against Obama, with only a slim 8.5 percent margin.

Since the event momentum stalled, coming nowhere near the Phoenix overflow capacity crowds generated by the appearances of Donald Trump or Ben Carson, the secret guest had to be revealed a couple of weeks early. The email featuring Thanksgiving greetings somberly states that “tickets won’t last, so be sure to tell your friends and family to reserve space today!”

So who is this major draw being brought in to help John McCain? None other than another presidential loser — Mitt Romney.

There is even a plaintive plea, desperately  asking recipients to “share the message with others” and “connect to see which of your Facebook friends are going to join John McCain and Mitt Romney.

If you’re a conservative, the unequivocal answer would be, “Not many!”

Romney might help in bringing in Mesa voters, many of whom are also members of the LDS faith. And though he ultimately lost to Obama, he carried Arizona in 2012 by 10 percent — a better showing than the not-so-favored “favorite son.”  McCain has been in D.C. doing his dirty work (video) over three decades. Seeing Red AZ is supporting Dr. Kelli Ward in the 2016 senate race.  Check out her credentials and issues pages and see why.


McCain joins Soros pushing “refugee” invasion

November 23, 2015


As astute citizens collecting facts in advance of the crucial 2016 elections, a filter might seem necessary since there is so much to absorb — some fact, some fancy.  This morning we provide a mega dose of the factual, dating back several years.

In 2008, WND’s Jerome Corsi wrote the informative “John McCain funded by George Soros since 2001,” noting that McCain founded the Alexandria, Va.-based Reform Institute as a vehicle to receive funding from George Soros’ Open Society Institute, Teresa Heinz Kerry’s Tides Foundation and several other prominent ‘non-profit’ organizations. McCain used the institute to promote his political agenda and provide compensation to key campaign operatives between elections.”

Meet the open borders family: McCain, Hernandez, Soros, and the “Reform Institute comes via exhaustive research by Ed Morrissey (going back to 2005) and syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin, both undisputed conservatives. Morrissey can now be read at Hot Air.

Recently, Pamela Geller exposed diabolical billionaire George Soros as integral to the EU plan to aid the Muslim invasion and subsequent destruction of Europe by promoting acceptance at least a million “asylum-seekers” annually. Like McCain, Soros glibly tosses around the words “migrant” and “comprehensive,” as he castigates Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban for subordinating the “human rights of asylum-seekers and migrants to the security of borders.”

For thinking Americans and our European allies, secure borders are the decisive choice!

Using gumballs to make his presentation, Roy Beck of NumbersUSA brilliantly illustrates the fact that unbridled immigration will not help the world’s needy. Nearly 3 million have viewed this video. If you’re one of them, watch it again to allow the facts to marinate while you remember that he is not describing Muslims coming from nations that despise our freedoms, have no intent to acclimate and believe in Islamic supremacy and world domination.

Listen closely to John McCain, running for another six-year U.S. Senate term and Lindsey Graham, a single digit candidate for the presidency, explain to Tucker Carlson why the United States needs to increase the numbers of Syrian refugees. Their stiff demeanors and irrational blather appear to be part of a comedy skit, except they’re deadly serious. After the Islamic jihadist bloodbaths recently in Paris and Mali, that’s clearly the problem.


Catastrophic consequences of not closing borders

November 22, 2015

This Sunday before Thanksgiving, we are thankful for the wisdom of Dr. Thomas Sowell.

Today we invite you to take a few minutes to read his latest column titled, “Stop the Bleeding.”  As only he can, Dr. Sowell weaves a connective thread between the recent horrific acts of terrorism and the absolute need for nations to close their borders. In fact he goes a step further describing those “pursuing the will-o’-the-wisp called “comprehensive” immigration reform.”

Arizonans, living in a border state abutting Mexico, have more than a passing knowledge of that charade and its persistent perpetrators. John McCain paired on this issue with his then-senate colleague Jon Kyl. They were thwarted by outraged Americans who flooded senate phone and fax lines, causing a D.C. switchboard communications meltdown. 

After Kyl’s retirement, Jeff Flake, who won by the slimmest of margins, was all too happy to jump on-board the amnesty express, uniting with McCain, Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham as the RINO contingent of the Gang of Eight. They were joined by liberal cohorts Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Robert Menendez, and Michael Bennet. This effort also failed, but it will resurrect again.

Don’t believe the deceit that our immigration system is broken. The only thing that is broken is the will to effectively enforce it.

Today this Reuters news report is headlined, “Authorities missed many ‘red flags’ before Paris shootings.”

Please watch this shocking video* and ask yourself how that could be. It turns out there have been ample warnings throughout Western Europe. This is without a doubt one of the most disturbing videos you will ever see. Be sure to pass it on. Knowledge is power.

AZ GOP chair Robert Graham’s McMyopia

November 21, 2015

Make no mistake.  We are no fans of either Democrat U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (CD-1) or Barack Obama. However, the odd email sent out Friday by AZ GOP chairman Robert Graham, has left numerous conservatives scratching their heads in bewilderment.

Graham chastises both Kirkpatrick and Obama for not supporting the SAFE Act, which he cagily calls “a program to preserve national security by pausing the Syrian refugee program until additional background investigations of the refugees are in place.”

Well and good.

But where are the equally harsh words for Arizona’s other congressional liberals who voted in exactly the same matter as Ann Kirkpatrick?  

Why have leftists U.S. Reps. Raul Grijalva (CD-5) and Ruben Gallego (CD-7) slipped the surly bonds of Graham’s condemnation? 

The answer is all too simple. U.S. Sen. John McCain, who will be 80 by Election Day, is running for yet another 6-year term after over three decades in office. Throughout those years his record on myriad issues has been interchangeable with the Democrats, with whom he has often partnered against Republicans.

That’s why he was publicly censured by elected precinct committeemen at the January 2014 mandatory meeting of the Maricopa County Republican Committee by a vote of 1,150 to 351. Two weeks later the annual Statutory Meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party also censured the longtime politician for a litany of grievances, including a “record [which] has been disastrous and harmful to Arizona and the United States.” 

Graham is suffering from a severe case of McMyopia, a refusal to see the same shameful behavior in the lying, “Open Borders” attitude of Arizona’s senior senator as evidenced by three of Arizona’s four congressional Democrats.

This was SRAZ’s take on the same issue as it relates to (AZ CD-9) U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema’s vote with the GOP and her reasons for doing so.

Robert Graham, fantasizing McCain is not facing primary challengers goes directly at Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick who will be running in the General Election. McCain has primary opposition, acknowledged by Breitbart though ignored by Graham, ever eager to carry McCain’s distasteful water. As we recently noted, Roll Call is not as constrained as Graham. It lists John McCain number six on the roster of the ten most vulnerable U.S. Senators on the 2016 ballot.

John McCain makes “most vulnerable senators” list

November 10, 2015

Roll Call lists John McCain number six on the roster of the ten most vulnerable U.S. Senators on the 2016 ballot. Also on the list is Colorado Democrat Sen. Michael Bennet who threw in with McCain, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio, all elected as Republicans who teamed with liberal Dems on the infamous Gang of Eight — pushing amnesty for illegal aliens.

Snuggling up to McCain hasn’t helped Graham, now a long-shot presidential candidate. He’s so unpopular that he couldn’t rise high enough in polls to even make it on tonight’s second tier debate stage. Like McCain, Graham has been has been censured numerous times by local Republican Party officials in his home state of South Carolina for his collusion with Democrats. Both McCain and Flake were booed and met with turned backs and walkouts by elected state delegates at the Statutory Meeting of the Arizona Republican Party earlier this year.

Political canoodling with the toxic John McCain is clearly a sure-fire recipe for disaster.

Sham candidates aid McCain

November 9, 2015

Can’t win candidates flood the field, assist McCain

Why would an unknown and self-acknowledged “long shot” 74-year-old who believes in cryonics — the freezing of dead humans until a cure might be found for what killed them — be entering the AZ  U.S. Senate race to challenge John McCain?

And why would John McCain’s sycophantic reporter at the daily newspaper eagerly cover David Pizer’s late and unlikely entry into this race? Candidate Pizer has yet to find a campaign manager.

If Pizer sounds like a Jimmie Lee Deakin ringer to you, you’re not alone. Deakin, no economics wizard, was facing foreclosure on his home, only to mysteriously regain his financial footing at the conclusion of the election cycle. Known for his crassness, he also fumbled his FEC campaign filing. Deakin’s sole purpose was splitting the vote to help assure a McCain victory. It didn’t hurt that moneybags McCain outspent his conservative challenger former Congressman  J.D. Hayworth roughly ten to one — aided by 2008 taxpayer matching funds.

The more people with no chance to win take on McCain, the better it is for McCain. Siphoning off votes from an actual reputable challenger is madness at best. You can fill in what it is at worst.

Perennial candidate Clair Van Steenwyk, who calls himself Van the Radio Man, though he‘s nowhere on your radio dial, and Alex Meluskey, who wants to “streamline” our “flawed “ immigration system are cut from the same cloth.

Dr. Kelli Ward, a two term state senator and physician, who understands the complexities of the increasingly costly monstrosity known as Obamacare, has the credentials that give her a real chance to take out the senior senator who will be 80 by Election Day.

This election is too important to leave to egocentrics, bozos and a treacherous snake who has been censured by his home state Republican Party.

U.S. Senate terms are six long years. After more than three decades of McCain working to promote amnesty for illegals, collusion with the left to purge conservative elected precinct committeemen from the state GOP and targeting conservatives for IRS scrutiny, Arizonans deserve real representation.

In 2008, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay summed John McCain up very well with these words. He was right then. His words still resonate today.
