No More Lies Kelli--Let's Debate.
Dear friends, supporters and dignitaries:
I usually make it a strong habit to ignore internet trolls and their lies, but since more than a few of you on this email sent this to me to be sure I saw it, I wanted to take a brief moment to reply clearly to the inane and libelous rantings.
I offer my apologies for bothering you with such nonsense, but since we all understand that even unfounded lies can do damage, it is best to nip them in the bud and then be done and satisfied with the matter.
It is regrettable Kelli Ward, her husband and their supporters take to social media and email with personal attacks, lies, innuendo, obfuscation, slander, libel, and gossip rather than sticking to substantive issues. Nevertheless, such do require serious rebuttal from time-to-time.
Allow me to briefly reply to these accusations, if they can even be called that.
First, that I, my business, or perhaps my campaign has done anything illegal. Ludicrous. There are more than enough government regulatory oversight entities to address any legitimate violations if they occur at all. In this particular charge, they have not.
The single document provided as an alleged illegal activity was nothing but a paid print job by my company. All logos and names used were in control of and compliance rests with the client. The charge of any illegal misdeeds is libelous and false. Notice is hereby given that anyone who further persists in spreading such lies may be brought to court for their actions.
Second, that I or anyone associated with my campaign or business is being paid for by McCain is also ludicrous, libelous and a downright malicious lie. My donations to my campaign are my personal life savings. Kelli has also donated her own money to her campaign. So have Trump and Cruz and pretty much anyone who has ever run for any office. That is a non story.
Why am I spending my savings? Because, I so strongly believe our country is standing on the verge of either great reform or impending disaster, I could not stand by living a comfortable life while my nation and the future of my children’s nation was in such jeopardy. It is put up or shut up.
Third, that my campaign staff or supporters are establishment insiders. Do these Ward liars not know how to use Google very well? My Campaign Manager has indeed worked on five Presidential Campaigns, and far too many other national and federal campaigns to even count, but did they bother to look up the persons for whom he worked and his titles?
National Political Director for Ron Paul 2008: Who was Ron Paul running against in 2008? Oh, that’s right, John McCain.
National Operations Director for Alan Keyes 2000. Are Alan Keyes and Ron Paul establishment insiders? Does anyone believe this lie?
He is also a nationally syndicated radio talk show host and a renowned conservative documentary filmmaker whose film “UnFair: Exposing the IRS” was released in 700 theaters nationwide last year.
How did I meet such an establishment insider? I was the state theater captain leader for his movie! He came through Arizona two years ago while filming the IRS abuses for his documentary, we met and discussed the importance of this race. At the time I had no idea the criteria we discussed for the candidate we needed to recruit to defeat John McCain in “the year of the outsider” would end up being me.
You can check out his movie or book on Amazon and see for yourself. http://www.amazon.com/UnFair-Exposing-IRS-Craig-Bergman/dp/1939447593
In addition to Craig and his experience, I have a former Reagan Whitehouse staffer in Washington D.C. who is advising my campaign, along with several well known and influential Arizona activists locally.
Lastly, the ridiculous charges that I am not a conservative at all, or I am dropping out of the race, or somehow joined the Tea Party, the Republican Assemblies, or ran for Precinct Committeeman as part of some secret plan to thwart the conservative movement as a whole.
I am the State Director of the Fair Tax. I am on the board or a member of several prominent national conservative organizations. I am the only 100% full spectrum conservative in this race. Unapologetic on the three legged stool of the Reagan Platform: Social Issues, Fiscal Issues and Strong National Defense.
My slogan of Principles not Politics is all the more self-evident when we consider these wicked, selfish and misleading attacks in the context of the real world consequences of the bills actually written by Kelli Ward. A despicable record she no doubt loathes to defend—instead resorting to these debase less tactics of the establishment. “You shall know them by their fruits”.
Thanks to the efforts of Kelli Ward, who was the primary author of the bill in the Arizona Senate stripping the power and authority away from Diane Douglas; powers that may have prevented the introduction of liberal sex education standards to children as young as kindergarten. This serves as a reminder that this is a serious election with serious and long-term consequences.
There is no place or time to engage in or support candidates who engage in such contemptible politics. I strongly condemn the malicious lies spread by Kelli and Michael Ward and their supporters or any other liars.
McCain does not fund me. My staffers are long-standing proven conservatives and national leaders. I raised all my donations legally. I am a 100% true Reagan conservative and the only candidate with deep, detailed, and articulate positions covering every issue in the Republican party platform. I was the first filed candidate for this office. Kelli Ward filed months later. She is the spoiler.
Lastly, I am not dropping out of this race because I refuse to trade the old establishment for a new one. Any time Kelli Ward is ready to debate me without the buffer of Facebook, I welcome her. I will not stand behind my supporters or "private investigators" to call her out on her abysmal record or the lies she and her campaign are spreading.
These are serious times for serious people. The Ward campaign has proven that it is not a serious campaign of issues, but an unprofessional gathering of professional liars incapable and unworthy of representing our great state of Arizona.
Most sincerely & respectfully,
Your humble servant,
The Principled Conservative Candidate for US Senate
