Dr. Kelli Ward criticized for prayers, expressing concerns

July 22, 2017

Valid concerns should be addressed

In the news section of her website, Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate,  senate candidate Kelli Ward is taking heat from commenters for her post, My Prayers to John McCain, Such is the political world today.

 Kelli Ward is a physician and is addressing John McCain’s serious medical condition. His own doctors at Mayo Clinic have described his malignant brain tumor as aggressive and resistant to treatment. Sen. McCain evidenced his inabilities during his recent questioning of former FBI Director James Comey, in what was described in the media as “bizarre and incoherent.” We now know the reason.

Dr. Ward is no longer running against the nearly 81-year-old John McCain, who was reelected to another six-year-term in 2016 but is challenging virulent Trump opponent Jeff Flake. She gains no foothold by suggesting McCain not attempt to subject himself to the rigors of the U.S. Senate and concentrate on his treatment and enjoy time with his family. He will be undergoing a tough treatment regime, and should be with his loved ones. There is nothing untoward about suggesting he step aside, saying, “When the time comes that Senator McCain can no longer perform his duties in the Senate at full capacity, he owes it to the people of Arizona to step aside.”

That is reality for both Sen. McCain, the people of Arizona and the nation as evidenced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell putting the critical vote on health care reform on ice due to McCain’s absence, where every vote was needed to pass and McCain was recovering from brain surgery.


Prepping for Meghan? Would Gov. Ducey actually do it?

July 21, 2017

On the heels of the disclosure that Arizona Sen. John McCain is battling brain cancer, comes a barrage of Meghan McCain image polishing in the local newspaper.

Thursday’s front page features a massive photo of the nearly 81-year-old senator with a report on the “aggressive, tough to treat” malignancy. It also includes this tweet from daughter Meghan, in which she says of her father, “….like any daughter, I cannot and do not want to be in a world without him.”

Page 7 carries a full page report, headlined,: “Meghan McCain: He is the toughest person I know.”  But the editorial is what was the attention grabber, the hard copy version is headlined, “Meghan McCain emerges with poise and eloquence.”  It would be difficult for Arizonans to equate this description  with the coarse, tattooed, motor mouth who complained that her father’s presidential campaign ruined her sex life, calling his failed effort a “libido killer” and even throwing in a slam to her much classier mother. The editorial, referring to John McCain as “one of the most influential leaders of our time,” was a rehash of his legendary heroism, disputed (video) by those who were imprisoned with him in Vietnam and members of congress who questioned his permanently shutting down access to POW and MIA records.

The online version of the editorial is even more blatant, “Our View: John McCain’s legacy is in good hands.” Sounding more appropriate for an obituary, this creepy praise came as John McCain is still among us.

Despite being bewildering it’s clear the Arizona Republic is pushing for Gov. Doug Ducey to appoint the marginal Ms. McCain to fill the senate seat occupied by her father. Ironically, it wouldn’t be much of a push, since the governor and senator have a longstanding connection dating to the  early 1980s when Ducey moved to Arizona to attend Arizona State University, and began working at Hensley& Co., the Anheuser-Busch distributor owned by Cindy McCain.

None of his 6 other children (2008) rate this syrupy coverage or even a mention.

Meghan McCain’s Republican credentials have always been suspect. A social liberal, she became a Republican as a Father’s Day surprise, in a display of “commitment” to her Dad. It’s worth noting that at the time, he was the GOP nominee for the U.S. Presidency. Like her father, Meghan refused to vote for Republican nominee, now President Donald Trump.

Even plagued with serious health problems, John McCain continued to lash out at President Trump, who, joined by First Lady Melania, sent him warm wishes after hearing of the serious diagnosis.


Is serious condition downplayed by McCain’s office, Mayo Clinic?

July 17, 2017

The New York Times is reporting that neurosurgeons reviewing the facts surrounding John McCain’s craniotomy to remove a 2 inch blood clot “above his left eye”.are concluding that his surgery may be more serious than initial descriptions have implied, and could delay his return to Washington by a longer period of time than the week originally stated.

“Usually, a blood clot in this area would be a very concerning issue,” said Dr. Nrupen Baxi, an assistant professor of neurosurgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. He added, “The recovery time from a craniotomy is usually a few weeks.”

The cause of the clot has not been disclosed. Possibilities include a fall or a blow to the head, a stroke or certain brain changes associated with aging. McCain will be 81 next month. His office did not divulge if he takes blood thinners.

“Usually, a blood clot like this is discovered when patients have symptoms, whether it’s a seizure or headaches or weakness or speech difficulties,” Dr. Baxi said. “Generally, it’s not found on a routine physical because doctors would not know to look for it.” 

An initial press release regarding his condition indicated McCain’s blood clot was found during a routine physical examination.

McCain’s recent confused questioning (video) of former FBI director James Comey led to widespread speculation that he suffered a health related impairment.  He dismissed questions that something was wrong by saying he had stayed up too late watching a Diamondbacks baseball game the night before.

The dependably McCain-fawning Arizona Republic, unable to ignore his bizarre performance, even addressed the elderly senator’s incoherent interview of Comey in this coverage by McCain’s assigned reporter, Dan Nowicki.   Columnist E.J. Montini used the descriptive words, “awkward, befuddled performance,” concluding it was “embarrassing.”


SCOTUS vacancies loom: Dems question Trump’s ability to serve

July 6, 2017

Today we pass along another reason to delight in having President Trump making executive decisions. As you readPower Move: Gorsuch Opts Out Of High Court Labor Pool.” by Kevin Daley, Legal Affairs Reporter for the Daily Caller you’ll be provided insight into the independence and work ethic of Trump’s newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. He has decided to reject the practice of granting overreaching authority to the justice’s shared law clerks in what is referred to as a “labor pool,” to analyze and make recommendations regarding which cases the justices will hear. With this move, Gorsuch joins Justice Samuel Alito, who opted out of the system in 2008.

The U.S. Supreme Court is the primary reason the still shell-shocked Democrats remain unable to accept the fact that their scandal plagued candidate, Hillary Clinton, lost the presidential election. Barack Obama provided her with assistance as did Socialist billionaire George Soros and the far left celebrity crowd. She was poised to be Obama’s third term. It was a certainty she would follow his leftward court lurches. Her husband Bill was so moved when he announced his nomination of ACLU lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg, he had to wipe away tears.

Then on election night Americans spoke as stunning vote totals came in from unlikely blue states. Liberals cried and conservatives cheered. The Hillary supporting Washington Post had to admit “we were wrong,“ when it became clear their assessment of Donald Trump was far from accurate. Their mea culpa wasDonald Trump just blew up the electoral map.

 The angst was far greater than Hillary’s defeat. There were the now crucial repercussions of Donald Trump’s massive victory.  First and foremost is the Supreme Court and Trump’s ability to reconfigure the court for the next thirty years.

Justice Anthony Kennedy, a Reagan appointee who has delighted in being the unreliable “swing vote” reportedly is considering retirement. He turns 81 later this month. Stephen Breyer, a Bill Clinton appointee celebrates his 79th birthday in August. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 84, has been in ill health for years.

The prospect of President Trump filling those vacancies has sent shock waves through Congressional Democrats. Their latest scheme is to question the president’s mental fitness to serve out his term.

Though the president has served less than 6 full months in office, over two dozen Democrat lawmakers have signed on to a bill that would create an Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity. Their goal is to declare the President of the United States mentally incompetent under Section IV of the 25th Amendment and remove him from office. Never forget, it’s all about the Supreme Court.

Another item to add to your ‘never forget list’ is just prior to the end of Obama’s term, AZ Sen. Jeff Flake, saying, “It’s time,” urged his fellow senators to confirm Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s lame duck Supreme Court nominee. RINO Flake, who repeatedly announced his refusal to vote for Donald Trump was featured in Hillary Clinton’s campaign ad.

Actual Republicans are grateful Donald Trump was elected President of the United States and cheer his appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the high court. We should all remember the words and actions of Republican pretender Jeff Flake on Election Day.


US House passes criminal aliens bills — will Senate act?

July 2, 2017

Kate’s Law is named to memorialize Kathryn Steinle, 32, who was shot and killed in 2015 by an illegal alien brandishing a stolen firearm as she strolled the San Francisco pier with her father. The shooter, Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez, a Mexican national, was a repeat felon who had been deported five times.

This past week, the U.S. House passed two bills to address the laxity that allowed this tragedy, and other such crimes, to occur.

The bills —  Kate’s Law (HR 3004) and the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act (HR 3003) —  increase penalties for illegals who reenter the United States after being deported for criminal acts. Sanctuary cities or states that provide protections to illegals would be ineligible for certain federal funds. Arizona U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-CD 5) co-authored HR 3003, which included his bill Grant’s Law.

It was a victory that Kate’s Law passed. That it passed with these skewed, largely party line numbers — 257-167 — stands as a stark reminder that liberals appear content with the status quo.

Rep. Biggs’ excellent commentary —Dealing with illegals who deal in crime,” appeared in the Thursday edition of the Washington Times, describing the pressing need for the legislation. Biggs provides background that takes the victims from momentary names in the news to real people whose lives were brutally taken by criminal aliens.

In 2015, Seeing Red AZ detailed the callus murder of Grant Ronnebeck, a 21-year-old Mesa convenience store clerk whose young life was cut short by the previously convicted felon who had been given a sweetheart deal, releasing him from federal custody prior to deportation.

The future of these much needed bills remains uncertain when they get to the U.S. Senate.

Call the offices Arizona Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain  (Contact information under links)  and urge them to act admirably and vote for passage of these bills. They are both committed amnesty proponents, so their natural inclination would be to protect illegals.


Cheers for Handel in GA CD 6: Laughing our Ossoff

June 21, 2017

Call her Congresswoman Handel. 

In the most expensive congressional race in the nation’s history, former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel was victorious over Democrat Jon Ossoff, a  30-year old documentary filmmaker in the state’s 6th Congressional District

The Georgia race was touted as a referendum on President Trump, as Democrats pulled out all stops and money poured into the district from East and West coast influence peddlers. Inexperienced Ossoff wasn’t helped by the fact that he lived outside the district he was running to represent and was unable to vote for himself.

Things are looking very good. Approaching the midterms. The Republican also won the special congressional election in South Carolina.


Vicious Dems tweet vile spew re: ballpark shooting

June 15, 2017

Raw evidence that there’s more that separates Republicans and Democrats than their party platforms:

Caution…You might need a gag bag as you read these depraved thoughts.*

Count on conservative Ann Coulter to get it right, with The ‘Resistance’ Goes Live Fire.
