Truth takes a hike as open border stance gets front and center treatment
The fact that the open border crew at the Arizona Republic endorsed amnesty advocate John McCain comes as no surprise. After over three decades in Washington, D.C. the 80-year-old liberal who has made a career of deceptively capitalizing on an “R” alongside his name, and is anathema to conservatives, is brazenly running for another six-year term.
What is surprising is that the newspaper doesn’t let facts get in the way of its agenda. Examples include the blatant falsehoods concerning two of McCain’s challengers. Front runner Dr. Kelli Ward, a family practice physician, is identified as having served “two years in the Arizona Senate.” It was actually four years — two terms that were two years each. It would seem anyone entrusted with writing a pre-election endorsement would be inclined to check these easily attainable facts. Is the sloppiness intentional or the hallmark of those who choose to diminish experience? Being a state senator with a penchant for voting “present” nearly 130 times instead of taking a stance, was considered significant enough to springboard Barack Obama to the presidency.
In describing Alex Meluskey, the editorialist calls him a “GOP Party activist.” In fact, the primarily self-funded Meluskey was registered as a PND, Party Not Designated, prior to deciding to run for the U.S. Senate. When the newspaper wants to spin, it doesn’t allow pesky facts to get in its way.
The premise of the endorsement is that McCain is prepared to lead in a dangerous world. Aside from irrationally befriending Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi and assisting him in obtaining military weaponry. McCain tweeted out that after visiting him at his Libyan “ranch” the murderous dictator was “an interesting man.”
The editorial fails mention the fact that McCain has been censured by elected members of his own party at a statewide meeting. It omits his longtime association with George Soros, who has funded him since 2001.
Here is an example of McCain’s vast knowledge regarding Mideast turmoil. McCain posing with ISIS terrorists, who he referred to as “freedom fighters.” Here he is in a 2008 CBS News clip speaking with reporters in Jordan and exhibiting abysmal ignorance of who the extremists and terrorists even are. He was immediately corrected by far more knowledgeable then-Sen. Joseph Lieberman while an obviously embarrassed Lindsey Graham hung his head. On the home front, here’s McCain exhibiting his disturbing lack of knowledge on economic matters.
The newspaper absurdly credits McCain with taking on the VA hospital scandal in which veterans were denied much needed care, resulting in needless deaths while administrators were paid astronomical salaries. It erupted right here in Arizona, under John McCain’s nose. He only reacted when it was politically expedient. McCain, who has served as a “legacy” adviser to Barack Obama, is also a Second Amendment restrictionist.
This shocking video shows McCain’s abysmal disconnect on a wide range of issues.
But in the end, it’s all about amnesty for illegals. Although McCain strolled the border with Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu and vowed to build the danged fence, immediately after being reelected, he spearheaded another attempt to push amnesty, with the Gang of Eight, including Jeff Flake, and a host of the most liberal members of the U.S. Senate. Though his word is worthless, the newspaper swoons into throes of McEcstasy actually referring to the marginal McCain as “a global figure. One of the most influential people in in the world.”
John McCain has had his time and has been a dismal failure. Vote for conservative Dr. Kelli Ward. It‘s past time for a change.
