- 11. Gila County Republican Party Votes to Censure Senator McCain
Contact:Gary P. Morris, Chairman, Gila County Republican Party 602-803-7366
For the second time since 2013, the Gila County Republican Party has censured Senator John McCain for his lack of adherence to Republican principles and the desires of his Republican constituents in Gila County. The censure from the May 14 Precinct Committeemen meeting states the Gila County Republican Party cannot, and will not, support Senator McCain in the upcoming elections.
In early fall of 2013, The Gila County Republican Party first censured Senator McCain for abandoning Republican principles as well as his participation and leadership in the "Gang of Eight" along with the Senator's conscious and arrogant abandonment of the desires of his Republican constituents. Those eight senators drafted a poorly designed, ill thought out, "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" bill. Ultimately, Congress rejected the bill following substantial opposition from the public.Click here to read more
- 12. McCain-Assisting PAC Misleads Voters about Conservative Opponent Kelli Ward
by Patrick O'Malley and Anita Christy
The Arizona Grassroots Action PAC has been running a negative ad about Kelli Ward for weeks on radio stations and FaceBook. The ad claims she failed to support our military with the funding needed to pay the troops. It also claims she sponsored a bill to prevent law enforcement in Arizona from cooperating with the feds to prevent terrorism.
Both claims are false.
Every year, Congress passes a National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to fund the military. A serious criticism of the 2013 NDAA was that it continued to include a provision that allows the military to detain individuals, including US citizens, indefinitely and without trial, as part of the war on terror.
Kelli Ward was a State Senator and couldn’t vote on the NDAA, but she was asked about the bill and specifically about the indefinite detention of individuals issue on a talk radio show. The show is Love, Guns, and Freedom with Luca Zanna, and the discussion about the NDAA with Kelli Ward is part of the December 1, 2013 show. That’s where the quote “I don’t support the bill” comes from. It was in response to a direct question about the indefinite detention provision.
In 2014, many brave conservatives joined Ted Cruz in opposing this tyranny for the same reason given by Kelli Ward. See Ted Cruz: Indefinite Detention Retained in NDAA 2014.
The second issue concerns Arizona SB1156 in 2014. Dr. Ward was the prime sponsor, along with 13 co-sponsors. The Grassroots Action PAC claims the bill would restrict Arizona law enforcement from cooperating with the feds to fight terrorism. Do you remember back when we found out the NSA was monitoring our phone calls? That it wasn’t just suspected terrorists' international calls like we’d been told? It was everybody’s calls all the time? And people were wondering what had happened to their Fourth Amendment protections from search and seizure? SB1156 stated that the NSA and other federal agencies that wanted cooperation from local law enforcement in their investigations and wanted to collect information in Arizona had to get a warrant. No cooperation without a warrant.
The AZ Grassroots Action PAC was organized in 2014 supposedly to support or oppose multiple federal candidates and is classified as an independent expenditure committee.
Not quite. According to an article in Politico titled McCain's big purge:
- 13. John McCain rips Tea Party, Fox News, calls Hillary Clinton a 'rock star'
Remember this article from 2013?
When asked about Hillary Clinton, John McCain stated:
"I think she did a fine job," he said of Clinton's performance as Secretary of State despite the scandal surrounding the Benghazi terror attack.
"She’s a rock star. She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world. I do think it is interesting that the issues where John Kerry is engaging is where Hillary Clinton did not engage in, that those decisions were left to the White House and the National Security Council," he added.
What if Hillary ran against Rand Paul in 2016:
"It’s gonna be a tough choice," he said, laughing.
He clarified his remark, saying Paul "represents a segment of the GOP, just like his father. And I think he is trying to expand that, intelligently, to make it larger."
He called Rand Paul and Ted Cruz "wacko birds."
He said Obama has "grown" in office, especially since the president has reached out to him and Sen. Lindsey Graham, the South Carolina Republican who is often at McCain's side on issues like immigration. McCain praised Graham, saying he "is like a son to me."
Fox News is "schizophrenic."
About the TEA Party: "Many in this group didn’t come to power to get things done. They came to power to keep things from getting done," he said.
John McCain also stated: Kelly Ayotte, I am very close to. Chuck Schumer (Democrat). Carl Levin (Democrat) and I are as close as two people can be.

- 16. Does John McCain Care More About Dead Boxers than Kids?
Some senators/presidential candidates weren't fooled by the majority opinion that the ESSA (S1177 Every Student Succeeds Act) returns educational decisions to local school districts and the states. Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul voted NAY for cloture on 12/8/2015. Paul again voted NAY to the bill on 12/9/2015. Senator Jeff Flake flip-flopped, initially voting YEA on Tuesday, and NAY on Wednesday.
Senator Cruz stated: The bill "continues to propagate the large and ever-growing role of the federal government in our education system---the same federal government that sold us failed top-down standards like Common Core."
Senator Paul stated: "While the Senate bill goes a long way to remove federal mandates, it also continues a large federal intrusion into education, therefore I will oppose it."
Senator John McCain voted YEA both days. Maybe it was because he finally, after 10 years of trying, got his special wish.Click here to read more
- 17. Actions YOU can Take to "Defund" Planned Parenthood
Because Planned Parenthood receives at least $540 million in federal government grants, it is extremely important that we all continue to apply pressure to Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, as well as our U.S. Representatives Matt Salmon, Paul Gosar, Trent Franks, Martha McSally, David Schweikert, Ann Kirkpatrick, Raul Grijalva, Ruben Gallego, and Kyrsten Sinema, to defund this hideous organization. Click HERE for their contact information.
However, as a private citizen, YOU also have the power to defund Planned Parenthood! When you buy products from companies that support liberal organizations, you are supporting the abortion industry, the breakdown of the family, and gun control. In contrast, when you buy products from companies that support conservative organizations, you are supporting pro life, the family, and Second Amendment Rights.
