Kyrsten Sinema, Flaky Arizona Senate Candidate

Oh, Arizona. Senator Jeff Flake is retiring. That’s good. You get to vote in November for a replacement for his Senate seat. That’s good. One of the candidates, Martha McSally, is a battle-tested fighter pilot. That’s good. The other candidate, Kyrsten Sinema, is a flake, at best. That’s bad.

Don’t know much about Representative Sinema? Watch this short video and then we’ll discuss:

Okay, so first of all, if I wake up thinking about calling any U.S. Senator, it’s a bad day already. That means that something is totally cocked up. She’s a former Green Party activist??? Have you ever read their platform? I linked it here. Yes, it reads like it was written by your local high school social justice club. And, all of Kyrsten’s talk about listening makes me think of Hillary Clinton and her “Listening Tours”. It makes Kyrsten sound like a flaky pander bear.

Kyrsten wants better nutrition for all children. Who doesn’t? We have a childhood obesity problem and, unbelievably, there are still children in our country who don’t have enough to eat. Short of issuing food to parents and force-feeding the children, it is an unsolvable problem.

And, finally, Representative Sinema wants to help veterans. She received an award this year from the Military Officers Association of America for her work with veterans. She has two brothers who are military veterans. I could find no concrete action that she has taken to actually “help” veterans.

Which makes this next bit interesting.

In 2003, Sinema co-founded a group “Local to Global Justice”. Peter Hasson of “The Daily Caller” filed this report:

Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Democratic nominee for Senate in Arizona, led an anti-war group that portrayed American soldiers as skeletons waging “terror” in the Middle East.

Local to Global Justice, a group Sinema co-founded, promoted a 2003 anti-Iraq War protest using flyers that read: “You can help us push back U.S. terror in Iraq and the Middle East.”

The flyers depicted three menacing skeletons, including a gun-toting soldier, looming over a crowd of protesters.

The flyer:

The three skeletons, to me, represent business, the military and capitalism, left to right. As a military daughter, mother, and aunt, it really cheeses me off when people say they love the military but don’t support the war. Or, when they say, they hate the military but love veterans. Oof! I love business and I love Capitalism, too. Two generations ago, my people were poor and barefoot in Appalachia. Today, we are not poor. Still in Appalachia and still barefoot, by choice.

In all seriousness, that event flyer is very offensive. Is this part of Kyrsten’s being a “mature human”? Where was she on the road to Damascus when she had this epiphany?

Tonight, Harris Faulkner (love her) of “Fox News” is hosting a “Town Hall” with Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema. Hopefully, Miss Faulkner will ask her about this flyer and many of her other changing positions. And, hopefully, Harris Faulkner won’t let Sinema get away with a stupid, mature human comment.

Your choice, Arizona. You can choose a fighter pilot or you can replace Flake with a flake.

    No. Not necessarily. IMO, she’s no better than McCain, in terms of her career. (Personal experience)
    That being said, she’s no Kyrsten Sinema.

    just solving people’s problems at a practical level
    Ummm….. Then become a plumber. Or maybe a city councilman. Our national gov’t is no place for “people’s problems” to be solved. It has a very limited jurisdiction, and unless that person calling you in the morning is calling about an interstate commerce problem, a posse comitatus problem, or the invasion of our borders by a foreign force, then you really have no business making it the national gov’t’s business.

    She’s a former Green Party activist?
    Well, if she hasn’t supported their platform while in office, then I’m willing to accept that as “former”. If we don’t allow for people to learn and grow, then we may as well start the hot civil war now, since you’re consigning everyone who ever voted left to the outer darkness, forever.

    it really cheeses me off when people say they love the military but don’t support the war
    Well, too bad. It’s entirely possible to be pro-military and be against a war in which they are involved. It’s NOT hypocritical or two-faced. (Having said that, many of the politicians making that claim with the Iraq War were hypocritical and two-faced about it.)

    Still in Appalachia and still barefoot, by choice.
    Heh.

    Where was she on the road to Damascus when she had this epiphany?
    Well, I think that would be a good question to ask her.

    Your choice, Arizona. You can choose a fighter pilot or you can replace Flake with a flake.
    And if that’s the basis on how you vote, then I would ask you to not step into the booth. Maybe choose one to vote for on something other than “war record” (egad, McCain rode *that* gravy train for 40 years) or positions so far in the past that they’ve grown mold.

    This could have been a good 1v1, compare-and-contrast, what-are-they-actually-going-to-vote-for post. But it wasn’t. It was just a bit of “hey, look what she once said” contrasted against “oooh, look, a fighter pilot!”
    You can do better.

      Maybe you should read the MOAA article you linked. It cites work she did for her constituents, including pressuring the IG to investigate the crap going on in the Phoenix VA and working to protect a whistleblower there (one who actually was a whistleblower, who followed the system, iirc).

      (Full disclosure, I dropped my membership in the MOAA because they seem to mostly be about getting Moar Money, and little else. They’re a lobby group little different from SEIU, imho.)

    A local Tucson radio commentator has referred to this race as “voting for an 8 lb bag of manure vs a 5 lb bag of manure”. Neither one of them will be good for AZ. McSally runs on her military record, and Sinema re-invents herself to suit the political climate. Both are planning on being Senator for life.

    • I should have called in and let them know that the insult to manure is not acceptable.

      Let’s use infected horse piss.

      In any case – Republicans, get out in November and vote for McSally. Independents with half a brain, get out in November and vote for McSally. Otherwise, YOU WILL HAVE A MARXIST IN THAT SEAT UNTIL SHE DIES. Sinema will never lose a primary, and the Democrat idiots will always look for the “D” on the ballot and go no further.

      McSally, on the other hand, we can get rid of in the primary – and she does have the examples in front of her of both Flake (who would have been trounced after his antics), and McCain (who would have finally lost his, except he obviously didn’t care, as he was about to meet his owner).
