Neo-Con John McCain Facing These Potential Challengers?

Published

(Via The Daily Wire)

A group of Republicans have started positioning themselves to be appointed the successor to an ailing Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) who is fighting an aggressive form of brain cancer.

The campaigns to replace McCain have reportedly angered a good number of Republicans, who view the attempt to usurp McCain’s seat as disrespectful, according to The Hill.

The report highlights three Republicans who are positioning themselves to take over for McCain:

Rep. Paul Gosar – “Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S., is serving his fourth term in Congress as the Representative from Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District. First elected in 2010, he came to Congress with no prior political experience. Paul believes that the Constitution is the cornerstone of our Republic, and always pursues policies that allow for more individual liberty and less government involvement.”

Former state Sen. Kelli Ward – “As a former physician, Dr. Ward has provided care to her community through her private practice and work in emergency rooms, and she takes the same approach in caring for her constituents in Arizona. Dr. Ward entered politics in 2012 when she ran and won a seat in the Arizona State Senate. While serving two terms in office, Dr. Ward continued to practice medicine in the emergency departments in Lake Havasu City and Kingman, Arizona.”

Former Rep. Matt Salmon – “Salmon, who is now the top lobbyist at Arizona State University, has made his interest in the seat known, though more tactfully than the others. Salmon had lunch with Ducey’s chief of staff earlier this month — something his allies made known among top Republicans around the capital — though a source close to the former congressman said the appointment did not come up.”

Former Rep. John Shadegg – “J.D., University of Arizona School of Law, Tucson, Ariz., 1975; Arizona Air National Guard, 1969-1975; lawyer, private practice; special counsel, Arizona state house Republican caucus, 1991-1992; special assistant attorney general State of Arizona, 1983-1990; advisor, United States Sentencing Commission; elected as a Republican to the One Hundred Fourth and seven succeeding Congresses (January 3, 1995-January 3, 2011); was not a candidate for reelection to the One Hundred Twelfth Congress in 2010.”

The primary Republican who is offended by the supposed actions of these Republicans is Arizona’s Republican Governor Doug Ducey.

“To the politicians out there that have been openly lobbying for this position, they’ve basically disqualified themselves by showing their true character,” Ducey told KTAR radio.

Since McCain’s diagnosis, the four candidates have reportedly made these moves:

Gosar – Emailed the governor’s staff to inquire about McCain’s seat.

Ward – Called on McCain to resign and said she should be considered to replace him.

Salmon – Had lunch with the governor’s chief-of-staff, although the subject of McCain supposedly did not come up.

Shadegg – Unknown; “McCain is close to Grant Woods, his chief of staff when McCain served in the House and later a two-term attorney general,” The Hill added

The candidates may also be gunning for the seat that will soon be vacated by Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who announced in October that he was not seeking reelection in 2018 because he doesn’t like Trump or the direction of the Republican Party. Flake is highly unpopular in his state, having been polled as low as 18% at one point.

Trump Is Poised To Take 2024 By Storm

Published

on

Biden has unsuccessfully been able to reform any issues left by the Trump administration and quite frankly has only made it worse. Inflation and the economy is hurting everyone, especially lower income voters who ironically voted for Biden. This has set off a windstorm for Biden as his approval rating goes further down the drain. With little hopes of any major policy wins before the 2022 election, Biden’s Administration, which championed “getting things done”, has stopped before it really even got off the ground.

With 2022 around the corner we will see a slue of Republican Presidential challengers, with Trump of course, being at the center of the pack. Rumors have it that Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie, and the like of Mitt Romney will all join the nomination, however this is only rumor and speculation. Trump however, will become the nominee. It would be hard for anyone to top someone who has already been President, even a firebrand like DeSantis, who has garnered  national support for a Presidential run.

Biden has failed so miserably that when a another Democrat attempts to challenge Trump’s economy compared what we are in now, it will be completely inexcusable. Not to mention the major social engineering the majority of parents and Americans are rejecting in terms of the LGBTQ Mafia Agenda & BLM. Biden, if anything, has completely destroyed the Democratic party’s chance of being a favorite with middle and upper-income voters, setting a disasters for the Democrats in 2024.

Lauren Witzke: Among Several Children on Hunter Biden Laptop, Including Chris Coon’s Daughter

Published

Well, folks. The dam is finally breaking on what is exactly going on with the Hunter Biden laptop scandal that the corporate media has refused to cover, simultaneously big tech is clamping down attempts to use their platform to share the story. And now we know why, because it involves underage children.

This weekend, Senatorial Candidate in Delaware and America First Patriot, Lauren Witzke, has exposed the most damning allegation yet. With an official police source confirming that Chris Coon’s Daughter is one of several children on the Hunter Biden laptop.

There are other allegations going around possible connections to foreign children being on the Hunter Biden laptop as well as several children of other politicians including one of Barack Obama’s daughter.

This only further proves Joe Biden and his entire family, and Chris Coons, are completely compromised by foreign entities and domestic deep state actors within our Government. They hold no allegiance to anything but what their masters tell them to do, because at the end of the day they are at the whims of others leaking this information and publicly destroying them and their career.

We can only imagine more damning allegations are coming to break now that we have a first look at just how explosive the “Laptop From Hell”, as President Donald Trump puts it, really is.

Trump Judges & The Purge

Published

on

I’d rather be judged by 12 than carried by six.

That great lyric from Ice Cube has more bite and meaning in the run up to the 2020 election. Now we have the investigation of the investigators. The Mueller investigation and everything it has encompassed is now being scrutinized. We are finally looking at indictments and guilty pleas from the corrupt cabal that tried to bring down, frame, jail and impeach a duly elected, INNOCENT president and anyone in his sphere. Getting to the point of investigating the investigators has been a long hard slog.

We did not foresee how really deep and treacherous the swamp really was. You could investigate, indict and try someone like a Hillary Clinton for example, and someone of authority in that chain is a corrupt actor from the Deep State and you will then see the guilty party skate free. Or you can have a completely innocent Mike Flynn, Roger Stone, George Papodopoulos railroaded by a corrupt judge. The Michael Flynn case is the most glaring. The DOJ has dropped the case and charges against him and in an unprecedented move the judge does not drop the case, he extends it as if he is the prosecutor.

So there is a light at the end of the tunnel my friends. Donald Trump has been appointing a record number of federal judges. This is a brilliant move and somewhat frustrating and time consuming. But there is a method to the madness. Why investigate, indict and try just for a Deep State judge to let the guilty party walk free? Donald Trump has appointed over 300 judges and counting. More will be appointed to the bench and now there is a more likely chance when the guilty parties are tried, there will be justice. So there is a silver lining in this swamp covered cloud.
