No One Tells John What To Do: Sunday’s Comic

McCain needs to start showing my constituents more respect
By Arizona State Rep. Bob Thorpe

On August 26, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) once again grabbed an opportunity to criticize many of my Arizona constituents and our nation’s leader, President Trump. McCain is angry that Trump, just like President Obama before him, exercised his constitutional power in granting executive clemency to former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Arizona’s senior senator appears to have forgotten Obama’s record-breaking 1,927 acts of clemency. He also seems to have ignored the fact that Arpaio was convicted for merely following state and federal laws when he turned illegal immigrants over to federal officials.

The 85-year-old Arpaio was not convicted of breaking narcotics laws, financial fraud laws or of revealing our nation’s secrets, all of which were crimes included in Obama’s numerous pardons. Arpaio was convicted of a simple misdemeanor in what many believe was a politically motivated show-trial in the Obama era.

  1. Little Johnnie is becoming more of a disgrace every day to the good people of Arizona and the United States. He is simply a mean, vindictive old swamp creature that needs to leave the swamp in DC. He is the poster child for term limits and also a RINO. He has done absolutely NOTHING for the state in all his time in the senate except help Charles Keating get over on the taxpayers. Wow, John, what a career in the senate and nothing to show for it. What do you see when you look in the mirror? Oh, right, a vindictive old man….

  2. “No One Tells John What To Do”…unless you’re George Soros.

  3. McCain is useless to the people of AZ and Senator Flake follows right in his footsteps. Like McCain, Flake has accused those conservatives who elected him of being nativist, that is, racists, simply because we believe the Federal Govt. must enforce it`s immigration laws with respect to those here illegally. Like too many others in the GOP, McCain and Flake are openly in favor of amnesty and open borders simply because they want to attract Hispanic voters, and if that isn`t playing racial politics, nothing is. They tell us, over and over again, that their rationale for amnesty is not because it is the lawful or right thing to do, but because in X number of years, Hispanics will be the majority in AZ.

      Oh how I HATE the term “nativist”. The history of the human race recounts massive movement of all kinds of people for all kinds of reasons. Assuming that modern archaeology is correct, the human race developed in central Africa. From there, EVERYONE who lives elsewhere is an immigrant. OK? Then as the various land masses became populated, cultures met and often differed.. (OK, killed people from the other culture). Is this all somehow shocking to you? If so, you MIGHT be a snowflake. With this understanding, do you think the total population of Arizona is better off under U.S. law or Mexican law? Simple question. But that question will determine the future of this state.
