Three former astronauts are endorsing Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) in her special election battle against astronaut and Democratic challenger Mark Kelly.

“We remember a not-so-distant past when the Air Force wouldn’t let women fly in combat. Instead of sitting down accepting the status quo, McSally stood up, fought for change and made strides for generations of women to follow her,” astronauts Tom Stafford, Charlie Duke and Jack Lousma wrote in an OpEd recently published in The Arizona Central.

The astronauts say that while McSally has a record of accomplishments to point to, Kelly’s positions remain largely unknown. The three are accusing Kelly of hiding his left-wing agenda behind the word “astronaut.”

“But having ‘astronaut’ on your resume does not mean you’d be a good U.S. senator,” the astronauts write. “Mark Kelly is hoping Arizonans are so impressed with his background that they ignore the fact that he’s supported radical gun control activists, that his plan for the eventual government takeover of health care would end Medicare as we know it, and that he’d vote to raise our taxes.”

The astronauts argue that Kelly will answer to the radical policies of his party if elected to the Senate because his election would help Democrats take back control of the government.

“They’re planning on taking away the filibuster — the higher vote threshold to pass legislation — to push through their agenda over the objections of hundreds of millions of Americans. This is not hypothetical. Democrats laid out their strategy in plain sight,” the astronauts warn.

“McSally has delivered for Arizona, while Mark Kelly embraces Democrat ideology that would be bad for our country — leaving us with less freedoms, less security and less control of our lives.”

As Leah pointed out earlier, a Kelly victory could be a game-changer in the Democrats’ bid to block the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. If Barrett isn’t confirmed by election day, and if Kelly defeats McSally, Kelly could be in the Senate on November 30, which would narrow the Republican majority from 53-47 to 52-48. Democrats would only need to peel away two votes from the GOP column, then, to prevent Barrett’s confirmation.

Real Clear Politics’ average currently shows Kelly leading McSally by six points but still considers the race to be a toss-up.

On Sunday, a mob of leftists gathered outside the home of Chad Wolf, acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), to demand the withdrawal of federal troops from places like Portland, Oregon. According to a mob leader with a bullhorn, the mob was there to make “social consequences” for Wolf and his family. Wolf has a wife and two young children.

In Portland, violent leftists have been trying to destroy the Hatfield Federal Courthouse on a nightly basis. Agents with the Federal Protective Service and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, two law enforcement agencies under DHS, are assisting the U.S. Marshals in protecting the federal courthouse. Several agents have been injured and dozens of rioters have been arrested over the past several days.

“We must make it uncomfortable for them,” the crazed woman shouted outside Wolf’s home on Sunday. “We will not be good Germans. We will not be the people who sat by and watched our neighbors commit these atrocities and said nothing because their kids were home.”

Like these leftists, the Nazis also showed up to people’s homes and terrorized families, but leftists have no self-awareness. As DHS secretary, Wolf oversees a panoply of government agencies concerned primarily with stopping deadly drugs from ending up on the streets of America and thwarting deadly terrorist attacks in the United States. DHS deports child rapists and murderers, and when they’re not busy defending our borders, they’re rescuing lost and injured illegal aliens in the desert who are abandoned by their human smugglers. In the left’s mind, that makes you a fascist and your family deserves to suffer.

“This man lives here quietly and is able to live just like us, and we need to do something about that,” the woman threatened.

Leftist mobs have been terrorizing American streets for weeks, and now they’re openly threatening to harm government officials and their families. It’s not known whether the acting secretary or his family members were home when the mob arrived.
