John McCain Censured

McCain

Republicans in Maricopa County have long been frustrated with John McCain. When McCain held a ‘closed door’ town hall on amnesty with Jeff Flake, the junior senator from Arizona, local Tea Party organizations were on-hand to protest their stance on rewarding illegals with citizenship. Frustrated with McCain’s overwhelming tendency to side with the progressive Democrats and attack conservatives, one group of Arizona Republicans decided to do something about it.

The Maricopa County Republican Committee, the state’s largest Republican group, formally censured Senator John McCain for “long and terrible record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrats.” This official censuring of McCain happened during the annual mandatory meeting of the Maricopa County Republican Committee. Nearly 1,500 precinct committeemen (PCs) were in attendance. The vote to censure McCain passed overwhelmingly with only 351 in opposition and 1,150 in support of the action.

Here is the full transcript of the official censure as reported by IC Arizona.

Senator John McCain Censured by Arizona’s Republican Leadership

As leaders in the Republican Party, we are obligated to fully support our Party, platform, and its candidates. Only in times of great crisis or betrayal is it necessary to publicly censure our leaders. Today we are faced with both. For too long we have waited, hoping Senator McCain would return to our Party’s values on his own. That has not happened. So with sadness and humility we rise and declare:

Whereas Senator McCain has amassed a long and terrible record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrats, such as Amnesty, funding for ObamaCare, the debt ceiling, assaults on the Constitution and 2nd amendment, and has continued to support liberal nominees;

Whereas this record has been disastrous and harmful to Arizona and the United States; and,

Whereas Senator McCain has campaigned as a conservative and made promises during his re-election campaigns, such as the needed and welcomed promise to secure our borders and finish the border fence, only to quickly flip-flop on those promises; and

Whereas McCain has abandoned our core values and has been eerily silent against Liberals, yet publicly reprimands Conservatives in his own Party, therefore

BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the Maricopa County Republican leadership censures Senator McCain for his continued disservice to our State and Nation, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that until he consistently champions our Party’s Platform and values, we, the Republican leadership in Arizona will no longer support, campaign for or endorse John McCain as our U.S. Senator.

BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the Maricopa County Republican leadership censures Senator McCain for his continued disservice to our State and Nation, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that until he consistently champions our Party’s Platform and values, we, the Republican leadership in Arizona will no longer support, campaign for or endorse John McCain as our U.S. Senator. – See more at: http://www.tpnn.com/2014/01/12/john-mccain-censured/#sthash.AvNgGcRB.dpuf

Oath Keepers Merchandise

  1. I am asking if any one has an answer, how or can AZ. start petition for recall or impeachment? Is this possible or does AZ. have to wait for his term to run out? Not knowing much about legal matters I really am interested!!??!! IS THERE ANY WAY TO GET THIS GUY REMOVED FROM OFFICE????

  2. @ Charlie Brown, I know this is not what you want to hear but …. (It is long, but learn from it and use it. It is past time we started ENFORCING THE LAWS OF OUR LAND; the US Constitution and all that is in PURSUANCE THEREOF IT, and EACH STATE’S CONSTITUTION as that state’s highest law and the contract they all must lawfully abide by. There is nothing wrong with our type of government except that the people who are lawfully to support and defend it did not do there duty – “We the people”.)

    McCain took a LAWFULLY required Oath of Office which is a felony to not keep. It also breaks the contract that he agreed to when he took that position when he did NOT support and defend the US Constitution and all that is PURSUANCE THEREOF it plus the Az Constitution both of which he is REQUIRED lawfully to keep, just as any other lawful contract.

    I would start by charging him with any crimes he has committed, and there are many – both civil and criminal; then fire his azz. Let him take the people of Az to court if he disagrees.

    AZ Constitution, please notice it says who created it – are the bosses.

    Preamble: Preamble: We the people of the State of Arizona, grateful to Almighty God for our liberties, do ordain this Constitution. (I am assuming you know the US Constitution and all that he is required to do as Az’s rep. Only those duties constitutionally assigned, PERIOD!)

    The AZ Constitution is the highest law of that state EXCEPT where the US Constitution and all that is in PURSUANCE THEREOF comes into play – which actually and lawfully is rarely.

    Article 2, Section 2. Political power; purpose of government: All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights.

    Before you say “Who can charge him or arrest him? The AZ militia is the LAWFUL agency that handles the arresting, even the charging if the have a decent, unafraid, and knowledgeable
    attorney because it was set up that way though taken out of OUR history and education so that we would be too ignorant to know and enforce.

    The Militia that makes the arrests and charges (if the charges are made by them and not just implemented) must be trained and organized – so start with CONSTITUTIONAL ex military and police as AZ’s lawfully organized militia.

    The Militia equals “We the People of the USA” because each state’s Militia is made of its lawful citizens excluding “representatives”, and the state’s can work together as needed for defense and to enforce the US Constitution or each state’s Constitution.

    The people and the Militia existed here in the USA before the states were created, before the states created the US Constitution – which created, defined, and gave LIMITED powers to (mostly) a central government. What we call the federal government created to handle mostly foreign affairs and to see that the states traded fairly with each other.

    The US Constitution created, defined, and assigns the duties that were (and are to be) to be carried out by the federal government instead of by each separate state. That is why each states has representatives who are there in the federal government to make known the people of that state’s wishes, and vote for what will REPRESENT the people’s will in each state.

    The Preamble to the US Constitution; starts with: “We the People of the United States do ordain and establish this Constitution”…

    By those words it is says “We the People” are the SOURCE of any and all legal status of the state and federal governments. “We” created them for specific purposes, and it was NOT to destroy our lives, control us, spy on us, track us, or murder us. Basically all public officials – state and federal representatives, state and federal law enforcement, state and federal judges, the multitude of state and federal bureaucracies – are called “public servants” for a reason – they are literally our hirelings, and representatives are usually just “temp workers” – expensive and with a huge inflated concept of themselves.

    The US Constitution and all that is in “Pursuance thereof” it, as the supreme (highest) law of this land says that “We” (as the Militia of the several states) are personally responsible for maintaining and protecting the US Constitution, each state’s Constitution, and seeing to their enforcement against ALL foes, domestic and foreign. “We” are the ones responsible for enforcing the laws of this land, and are charged with it’s defense plus the defense of our homes, neighborhoods, cities, counties, states, and country.

    It says it here:

    US Constitution, Article I, Section. 8, Clause 11: “To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water”. [Emphasis added]

    The congress has the duty to grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal when they are needed to enforce the US Constitution, the laws, or defend the people and the nation. This is using private citizens in their own privately owned crafts to defend the USA and her people, this is using the Militia.

    US Constitution, Article 1, Clause 12 specifies that there shall be no military beyond that of the Militia here: “To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years”.

    * NOTE here is the first LAWFUL charge against him (and others), Misappropriation of Funds: The money that the congress has illegally spent beyond the lawfully allowed time of two years for the support of a “standing military” was/and still is a misappropriation of funds (misappropriation n. the intentional, illegal use of the property or funds of another person for one’s own use or other unauthorized purpose, particularly by a public official…), a felony, a crime against the American people.

    Clause 15 requires of the congress: “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and REPEL INVASIONS”.

    This clause is very straightforward also. The militia of each state is taxed with the defense of the USA and her people, not just with the defense of their state; plus the enforcement of our CONSTITUTIONAL laws. They are to be armed with weapons that can repel any invasions bearing modern weapons of war. Congress is required to provide those military grade weapons for the militias.

    Clause 16 makes it very clear that the ARMING OF THE MILITIA OF EACH STATE is a LAWFUL duty assigned to the congress that they are REQUIRED to carry out: Clause 16: “To provide for organizing, ARMING, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress”.

    First inaugural, Thomas Jefferson: “a well-disciplined militia” is “our best reliance in peace and for the first moments of war, till regulars may relieve them” and also a guarantee of “the supremacy of the civil over the military authority; [and] economy in the public expense.”

    When the founders created the US Constitution they realized that we would never be able to count on state and federal representatives or agencies to protect our lives, property, and freedom. They decided to continue with what the people here had already been using, and the one proven throughout history to have the best needs of the people themselves always put first, the Militia. Who are the Militia of the several states? All able-bodied citizens or those legally allowed to be here between the ages of 18 – 60.

    Each state’s Militia is made up of “We the People”. The Militia has as its constitutionally assigned duties to:
    Enforce the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution,
    Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (constitutional laws ONLY),
    Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
    “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.
    (Thanks and acknowledgement goes to Edward Vieira, Jr for the way this is put; and for below information intermixed with mine. He is EXTREMELY knowledgeable!)

    The US Constitution guarantees to each state its own “Republican form of government”. It is every state’s Militia that is the ONLY Constitutionally assigned force to “counter Invasions” and “Domestic Violence” within our nation.

    The forefathers wouldn’t put the militia under federal control as there was always a chance that those in office would turn traitorous against the people. They already had learned, and history taught – then and now, that people in places of power could not be trusted. So they broke it up; the people ARE the militia and would keep the best interests of the people themselves at the forefront of all decisions made. Then they assigned the duty of organizing, arming, and disciplining each state’s militia to the federal congress, and to each state the appointment of their Militia’s officers and their training; all under Article I, Section. 8, Clause 16:

    “To provide for organizing, ARMING, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress”.

    The Militia of the several states also offers everyone the greatest degree of equality with each other;
    Because EVERY able-bodied person from the age of 18 – 60 is the militia of each state.
    They, when trained, have the governmental powers to operate in every county, city, state, and throughout America when needed.
    Plus through uniformity; the Militia requires the same general duty of service from everyone – though not all will have the same tasks as they can perform different tasks according to their abilities.

    This is why the Militia offers the best protection against corrupt politicians and usurpation’s for those serving within the governments, “We the people” protect our own natural rights and hold accountable those we put into positions of power by enforcing the US Constitution and each state’s constitution. When everyone takes a part in guarding the security of the neighborhood, county, city, state that they live in; plus the country when needed, it basically stops or makes it very difficult for a small body of people to take over this nation. (Edward Vieira, Junior “Constitutional Homeland Security” Volume 1, the Nation in Arms”.)

    The Second Amendment was and IS to preserve and guarantees the ALREADY existing right of individuals to keep and bear arms, it does not “grant” them.

    Let’s see what the framers, courts, newspapers of that time period, and the people said about the Militia, and the Second Amendment.

    Richard Henry Lee writing in Letters from the Federal Farmer to the Republic, Letter XVIII, May, 1788: “A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves …”

    George Mason, Co-author of the Second Amendment during Virginia’s Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788: “I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few public officials. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”

    St. George Tucker, a lawyer, Revolutionary War militia officer, legal scholar, and later a U.S. District Court Judge, wrote of the Second Amendment: “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, and this without any qualification as to their condition or degree, as is the case in the British government.” (The Supreme Court has cited Tucker in over forty cases, in the major cases of virtually every Supreme Court era.)

    Thomas Cooley: “The right is general. It may be supposed from the phraseology of this provision that the right to keep and bear arms was only guaranteed to the militia; but this would be an interpretation not warranted by the intent. The militia, as has been explained elsewhere, consists of those persons who, under the law, are liable to the performance of military duty, and are officered and enrolled for service when called upon. . . . If the right were limited to those enrolled, the purpose of the guarantee might be defeated altogether by the action or the neglect to act of the government it was meant to hold in check. The meaning of the provision undoubtedly is, that the people, from whom the militia must be taken, shall have the right to keep and bear arms, and they need no permission or regulation of law for that purpose”.

    Samuel Adams: “Under every government the last resort of the people, is an appeal to the sword; whether to defend themselves against the open attacks of a foreign enemy, or to check the insidious encroachments of domestic foes.  Whenever a people … entrust the defence of their country to a regular, standing army, composed of mercenaries, the power of that country will remain under the direction of the most wealthy citizens.
    And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms; or to raise standing armies, unless necessary for the defense of the United States, or of some one or more of them; or to prevent the people from petitioning, in a peaceable and orderly manner, the federal legislature, for a redress of grievances; or to subject the people to unreasonable searches and seizures of their persons, papers or possessions”.

    William Rawle, whose work was adopted as a constitutional law textbook at West Point and other institutions, and was United States Attorney for Pennsylvania, describes the scope of the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms: “The prohibition is general. No clause in the constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretence by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both.”

    Justice Story, Associate Justice, Supreme Court wrote: “The next amendment is: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
    The importance of this article will scarcely be doubted by any persons, who have duly reflected upon the subject. The militia is the natural defence of a free country against sudden foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpations of power by rulers. It is against sound policy for a free people to keep up large military establishments and standing armies in time of peace, both from the enormous expenses, with which they are attended, and the facile means, which they afford to ambitious and unprincipled rulers, to subvert the government, or trample upon the rights of the people. The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them”.

    Tench Coxe, Pennsylvania Gazette: “Who are the militia? are they not ourselves. Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American…The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”

    Tench Coxe, ‘Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution’, in the Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789, on the Second Amendment where he asserts that it’s the people with arms, who serve as the ultimate check on government: “As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow-citizens, the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and bear their private arms”.

    Hamilton said there exists a right of self-defense against a tyrannical government, and it includes the people with their own arms, Federalist 28;
    “If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government… if the persons intrusted with supreme power become usurpers… The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms…

    “… large and permanent military establishments … are forbidden by the principles of free government, and against the necessity of which the militia were meant to be a constitutional bulwark.” James Madison

    “That the people have a Right to mass and to bear arms; that a well regulated militia composed of the Body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper natural and safe defense of a free State.” George Mason

    The New Hampshire ratifiers called for a guarantee (the Second Amendment) that
    “Congress shall never disarm any Citizen…”.

    The Pennsylvania minority at its ratifying convention demanded a guarantee of a very broad right to arms, that
    “the people have a right to bear arms for the defence of themselves and their own State or the United States, or for the purpose of killing game.”

    Joel Barlow, Revolutionary War veteran, who authored “Advice to the Privileged Orders, in the Several States of Europe”, clergyman, theologian, popular poet, successful diplomat, and an American whose political writings were debated on the floor of Parliament said of the US Constitution:
    “… not only permitting every man to arm, but obliging him to arm.”

    Ronald Reagan
    “The NRA believes America’s laws were made to be obeyed and that our Constitutional liberties are just as important today as 200 years ago. And by the way, the Constitution does not say Government shall decree the right to keep and bear arms. The Constitution says ‘The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”.

    Mike Vanderboegh
    “Anyone who tells you that “It Can’t Happen Here” is whistling past the graveyard of history. There is no ‘house rule’ that bars tyranny coming to America. History is replete with republics whose people grew complacent and descended into imperial butchery and chaos”.

    “Whereas it has been proposed that the United States of America become a part of a world federal government;
    And … this program…would entail the surrender of our national sovereignty and… bring into being a form of government whose authority would supercede that of the Constitution of The United States Government;
    And … institute a system of laws where-by American citizens could be tried by aliens in controversion of the provisions of the Constitution of the United States;
    And … the Veterans of Foreign Wars is composed solely of men who have worn the uniform of the United States on foreign shores and in hostile waters in time of war and from their personal experiences are familiar with the traditions and operations of other countries;
    And … many of our comrades rest forever in foreign soil and their sacrifices were made to retain the dignity and sovereignty of the United States of America:
    Now therefore, be it Resolved by the Fiftieth Annual Convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, That we hereby declare that we are unalterably opposed to any program which would entail the surrender of any part of the sovereignty of the United States of America in favor of a world government…” Veterans of Foreign Wars

    “It is not the function of the government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error”. Justice Robert H. Jackson (Chief of Counsel for the United States, Nuremberg Trials – Nazi Germany)

    “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.” Patrick Henry

    Early American Caselaw:
    “Arms restrictions – even concealed weapons bans – are unconstitutional, since arms bearing is an individual right and the legislature may not restrict any aspect of such a right.” Bliss v. Commonwealth

    Nunn vs. State ‘The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’ The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the milita, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right”.

    Both clearly recognize an individual right to arms as the way to keep our freedom’s fromm those who might get into our governments and “have ideas beyond their station…

    So you see, the Militia of the state of AZ has the LAWFUL power to make the arrest once charges are brought.

  3. Capitol Hill has of late become like a kitchen in the dark in the wors tpart of town . When th elights are turned on all the cockroaches run for cover.At the end of the day there is hardly any difference between the political parties . The Mad Bomber McCain along with Lindsey Graham nearly had this country involved in yet another Middle east war , reminding us as General Smedly Butler said “War is a racket.”

  4. You will never get him out of office.
    He tells people one thing.
    Does exact opposite.
    Then people in his district vote him back in.
    Time after time.
    I respect his service.
    I respect the hell he went through as a POW.
    But as a politician he is as Left as they come.
    Remember his banker Buddies from the Savings and loan
    failure fiasco? The one before the last run of
    International banker thefts.
    John was elbow deep in the mess. Was voted back in office.
    The man is an arogant menace to Liberty, Freedom, and America.
    Bought and paid for by the criminal bankers.
    Manchurian candidate?

  5. Some of the county precinct committeemen and the state committeemen they elected participated in these votes are Oath Keepers. Like me. I’m an elected precinct committeeman in Maricopa County and an elected state committeeman.
    Of the 6,350 or precinct committeeman slots in Maricopa County, only about 55% are filled. Of the 12,082 or slots state-wide, only about 47% are filled. How many Oath Keepers reside in AZ? Why don’t you all join me and the other Oath Keepers who are “inside” the Party already so we can join with other conservatives and fill up ALL of the vacant precinct committeeman slots? If we conservatives were to do that, we’d OWN the Party. We’d be able to help elect better, “more conservative” Republicans in the primary elections and better, “more conservative” Party officers.

    A lot more effective than just preaching to the conservative choir day after day. The real ball game of politics is played by the precinct committeemen of the two major parties. Become one. Please.

    Thank you.
