Fish wrap back to trying to slay conservative candidates
The Arizona Republic is in the throes of political agony. Its two venerated RINOcrat senators are in trouble. “Thumbs down” McCain, 81, who deliberately sabotaged President Trump’s efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, is seriously ill. Jeff Flake is reaping what he has sown in denigrating President Trump, and is failing in the polls.
Flake, running for a second 6-year senate term in 2018, is struggling to keep his head above water. Writing an ill-timed, anti-Trump booklet has not endeared him to Republicans in a state that gave Trump all 11 of its electoral votes.
Enter Dan Nowicki, McCain’s sycophantic reporter employed by the Hillary-endorsing newspaper. Rather than reporting accurately about conservative challenger Dr. Kelli Ward, who just this past week had a thunderous campaign kickoff featuring conservative icon Laura Ingraham and executive chairman of Breitbart News, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
Nowicki compares Ward, a family practice physician and two-term state senator, to two women he identifies as “tea party” candidates from Nevada and Delaware, both of whom won their 2010 primaries only to lose in the general election. He gets a pass from the left-of-center newspaper which would be the first to call this sexist coverage if the topic was Democrat women.
This iffy language, lacking specifics, is typical of the style Nowicki employs to make his foolish point regarding Dr. Ward:
“Many Republicans consider her a weak candidate.”
“Some political observers say she could help deliver the senate seat to the Democrats in the general election.”
He repeats the fallacious McCain hype calling her “Chemtrail Kelli” for responding to a question at a candidate forum during her challenge to McCain. Nowicki batters Ward for her commitment to building a wall along our southern border, conveniently overlooking the fact that John McCain and Jeff Flake, both court globalist, billionaire George Soros — a committed Socialist —- and open borders proponent — except when McCain and Flake are candidates.
Following Nowicki’s Sunday article, the Republic’s columnist Laurie Roberts jumped in today, with a heading, “Kelli Ward’s run is Democrats’ dream come true.” Echo queen Roberts reaches into the newspaper’s reliable reiteration barrel to absurdly link Dr. Ward to “chemtrials,” and those considered unsavory enough to sully Ward. But Roberts tosses what she hopes is credibility by going to defamed political operative Nathan Sproul for substantiation of her anti-Ward thesis.
Describing Dr. Kelli Ward’s 2016 loss to John McCain, Nowicki fails to note that McCain outspent her 10 to 1, and brazenly lied about her. As is his modus operandi McCain has a third candidate enter the race to split the vote, ensuring his victory.
Jeff Flake has been at the public trough for the majority of his adult life, except for a stint as a lobbyist and registered foreign agent in the African nation of Namibia, where he worked for Rossing Uranium — one of the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel. Flake earned a substantial salary opening doors in D.C. and promoting the firm which had deep financial ties to Iran.
Take time to read about Dr. Kelli Ward and review her principled positions on the issues facing Arizonans and all Americans. Donate what you can. This is a crucial race and she isn’t sitting atop a pile of lobbyist money as Flake is.
