Club for Growth leads torching of possible Rep. Martha McSally run for Arizona Senate seat

Published

on

Friday, the Club for Growth PAC along with Erick Erickson, Senate Conservatives Fund, Citizens United Political Victory Fund, FreedomWorks, ConservativeHQ.com, Eagle Forum, and Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund joined together to release the following statement:

Our groups, representing millions of conservatives, write to oppose Martha McSally as a potential Republican nominee for the Arizona Senate race to replace retiring Senator Jeff Flake. Martha McSally masquerades as a conservative on the campaign trail but time and time again, Representative McSally has abandoned conservative principles. When given the chance to lead, she instead chose to cower to special interests and the ways of Washington. No matter which issue, ranging from economic to social to immigration, Rep. McSally’s voting record would leave you guessing she is a liberal. For these reasons and more, we stand firmly together to oppose her candidacy.

Below are individual quotes from the conservative groups:

FreedomWorks for America: “Martha McSally is part of the problem. She has an anemic 61 percent on FreedomWorks PAC. If elected to the Senate, she will undermine the conservative agenda to expand freedom and limit the size of government.” – Adam Brandon, President

Senate Conservatives Fund: “Representative McSally has a very liberal voting record. She has supported budget-busting spending bills, more debt, corporate welfare, and taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood and amnesty. Voters in Arizona want to replace Senator Flake with a strong conservative who will fight to drain the swamp in Washington. Martha McSally will do the opposite.” – Ken Cuccinelli, President

Club for Growth PAC: “McSally has a 59 percent lifetime rating on the Club’s scorecard. Among other things, she actively fought full repeal of Obamacare. She voted to increase the debt ceiling twice. She voted to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank, and she was even one of seven Republicans to support the Obama Phone program.” – David McIntosh, President

Erick Erickson, TheResurgent.com: “Representative McSally was one of the few Republicans who Barack Obama could routinely depend upon over the past few years. She helped him expand his government and gave him a blank check to raise the debt ceiling. We don’t need more people like that in the Senate.”

ConservativeHQ.com: “Martha McSally is a member of the RINO “Tuesday Group” that has obstructed President Trump’s agenda from within the House Republican Conference, she should not be sent to the Senate to take up where Jeff Flake left off.” – George Rasley

Eagle Forum: “Rep. Martha McSally is not an ally to the families that Eagle Forum represents. She supports drafting women into the military and giving them combat roles, voted for special protections for the LGBT community, and has allowed illegal immigrants to continue their stay on the taxpayer’s dime. For these reasons, we strongly oppose Representative McSally’s run for Senate.” – Anne Schlafly Cori, Chairman

Sen. Josh Hawley Folds? Blames Trump for ‘Inflammatory, Irresponsible, Wrong’ Comments

Hawley is no leader.

Published

on

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has been criticized for leading the GOP’s electoral college objection amidst widespread allegations of voter fraud, and he has responded by throwing former President Donald Trump under the bus.

Hawley issued a statement to oppose the impeachment of Trump following the conclusion of his presidency, which is unprecedented and unlawful, in which he threw Trump under the bus and essentially blamed him for the violence in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

In the aftermath of the violence, many left-wing voices accused Hawley of sedition and treason for asking for an investigation into a laundry list of irregularities that have been widely ignored by authorities.

There have even been calls by Democrats to revoke the will of the people by ejecting Hawley from office in order to punish him for drawing attention to voter fraud, as Big League Politics has reported:

Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.

Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.

Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.

On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.

“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”

According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.

Hawley finally caved under the pressure, and he has shown he is not the man to take the reigns to lead the America First movement after Trump.
