Kelli Ward Arizona State Senator District 5, one of three challengers running against incumbent John McCain for his U.S. Senate seat this coming 2016 election cycle. Published a statement in the August 11, 2015 Maricopa County Republican County Brief’s, concerning McCain’s vacillation on defunding Planned Parenthood.
Reviewing her statement’s last paragraph: “I Will. As a physician, I took an oath to help the sick and to save lives. As a Senator, I will swear an oath to the Constitution. I’ll keep both of those oaths. And unlike John McCain, I won’t give the left a free pass to harvest baby organs. I know you’ve had enough. We need real leadership, and I will provide it.” The question needs to be asked why she didn’t include or at least reference her Oath of Office taken for State Senator, the office she will be serving her second year of her second two year term this coming 2016 Legislative Session while campaigning for U.S. Senate (2016)?
Ward not mentioning or referring to her Oath of Office ‘sworn’ to ‘twice’ as an Arizona Senator to uphold the Arizona and the United States Constitution… a Freudian Slip? Perhaps “NOT” as she knows she has violated the Arizona Constitution in performing her duties as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Education and subsequent Senate votes.
In her MCRC statement Ward acknowledges her ‘Hippocratic Oath’ taken as a physician, and says she “”WILL swear an oath to the Constitution. I’ll keep both of those oaths.”… she will ‘keep both of those oaths’, one made as a Doctor and one she will make if elected to the U.S. Senate. Again, what about the other Oath, the one made (twice) as a State Senator to uphold the Arizona State Constitution?
The 8:34 minute video clip below (Endoctrination) was pulled out of a 30:54 minute video and will be used for future blog posts. Each time I watch the short video it becomes more evident she is either ignorant of the State Constitution and Laws relative to the subject or she’s spinning a web: it’s a combination in my opinion. Towards the end of the video (07:00) Ward identifies why she voted against what she says she stands for in the video ‘people on my side told me that was not a way to make friends’ – aka legislative (political) peer pressure (score card).
About a month earlier State Senator Kelli Ward, Senate Education Committee Chair states at Minute 00:31:57 “I hope that no one is legislating based on score cards I hope they are legislating on good policy…” 02/26/2015 – Senate Education
In short and not conclusive Senator Ward said in the video two employees (the two that were fired by Douglas) were to move under the supervision of the Board of Education, yet Ward voted to establish 11 FTE (full time Board employees) by expanding government through creating another department/division, The State Board of Education complete with its own budget lines with the future to expand. Also said, a full vetting process will take place of the five (5) Board nominees along with ‘no one gets by me’. She… her Education Committee only vetted three (3) choosing to let the other two (2) slid by un-vetted to serve for a year…. drum roll – for this and that reason.
What Senator Ward said and what she did are two different things that leads me to believe her not including/mentioning her Oath to the Arizona Constitution was indeed a classic Freudian Slip.
The MCRC Brief statement and the video: clearly Ward is intimately familiar with the SLIP thingy having a BS in Psychology where she left nothing out of her resume but she wants you to reach into your pockets and “CHIP IN”.
I’ll chip in…
