AzFRW President Loraine Bennett Pellegrino: The Arizona chapter of Americans for Prosperity urges the citizens of Arizona to vote NO on the state’s income tax hike proposal, the so-called “Invest in Education” proposal. This proposition would turn Arizona into a high-tax state, hurt our state’s small business owners, and put teacher pay in jeopardy. It would be the largest permanent tax increase in Arizona history, making Arizona’s top income tax rate the fifth-highest in the country and the highest in the Southwest region.

John Powelson Activist: Frank Riggs - Rabid never-Trumper. Do we really need any more of these in Arizona politics? See Riggs campaign sign when he was running for governor at I Refuse To Cast My Vote For Trump

Yavapai County Activist Myrna Lieberman: The article Yavapai County Republican Women Hold Kangaroo Court was sent to AZFRW President  Lorraine Pellegrino as I felt it behooved her to read it.   The synopsis of the article is that I was a duly elected Secretary who was fired after one month without any due process. The club failed to follow ROR or any bylaws and is unmoored from the Constitution. I don’t see how it can call itself Republican. Her failure to respond confirms that she has given her blessing in allowing this club to operate as it is without any respect to the Constitution or bylaws

Richard Hennessey to Teresa Mendosa: Before you start publicly trying and convicting people you had better be well aware that it can come back and bite you! The people who you are referencing have not been charged 8-18-18 Briefs and if you believe in anything in the constitution a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty Your attacks on these people along with Chris and Joe are unwarranted. You are trying them in the media just like the Liberal Left is doing to President Trump.

Zack Taylor, Chairman: Heroin and Cocaine from Latin America, Fentanyl from China killing thousands of Americans and the U.S. Government is focused on American Doctors and Pharmacists as the cause of the opioid epidemic. I am beginning to believe that Americans lack the facility to engage in critical thinking if they choose to accept the narrative that the main stream media and government organizations are promoting.The opioid epidemic is a border insecurity issue.  It is not a prescription drug issue. Today I am going to introduce the unwilling to understand to a novel concept:  Organized Crime cannot exist without Political Protection and Political Protection is not extended unless it benefits politicians.There will be no mitigation of the opioid crisis until Sanctuary Cities are closed down and illegal aliens go home.  That is likely why the left is fighting ICE so hard, they are making progress against the opioid traffickers. See us-opioid-crisis-deadlier-than-global-terrorism-in-2017-say-feds/

Dale Gohr of Clarkdale: Geraldo Rivera and Sebastian Gorka had a bit of a debate on Sean Hannity’s 8/16/18 show: Geraldo handed me a means of explaining something that my previous attempts have not quite reached. In talking about an ISIS (or ISIL) murderer that was captured in Sacramentom Geraldo stated there is a vast difference between “a hardened criminal and a hard-working apricot picker”. How do yu differentiate between them? Is there some mark, word or action that will definitively identify one or the other?

    Geraldo said he was for “vetting,” but how this can be accomplished without barriers, accounting and/or profiling. The same situation is prevalent in determining whether someone is “a peaceful Muslim” or “an Islamic terrorist”. Remember 11/5/09 when US Army Major Nidal Hasan [a qualified psychiatrist], went on a rampage and killed 14 (including one unborn baby) and injuring 33 others in Fort Hood, Texas. Hasan showed no real remorse, however, a couple of years later while acting as his own defense counsel his real contrition came to the fore when he emphatically apologized to his fellow jihadists for not having killed more. His criminal activity still is classified as workplace violence not terrorist attack (Thanks, to the Obama; Pro-Islamist, Pro-Socialistic, Democrat administration). [Socialism—Is the Governmental System of ALL: Communist, Nazi, Fascist, and Totalitarian governments, which extends into most of the ‘Religions of the world’; including the “Islamic Governance” of the Muslim Religion.]

    Today, we also have another ridiculous rant emanating from the politically under-informed, die-hard Democrats, mainstream media, entertainment icons, social media moguls along with some unhinged government and follow along military, over the revocation of John Brennan’s security clearance. In reality Brennan should not have been granted a security clearance above the lowest levels of “restricted” or “confidential”. Brennan is and has been closely associated with communist personnel and activities for the past 40 or more years.

     Many higher education, academic prognosticators have indoctrinated their students with the ideological belief that the reason there has never been a prosperous and desirable communist nation is because none were done right: What malarkey! Communism could work well for robots, but when you insert the human factor into it; everything falls apart. Thinking socialism eliminates greed is beyond stupid; it is idiocy on steroids.

    Who do you trust to determine your ability? Who do you trust to establish and deliver Your NEEDS? I seriously doubt you being able to find any Bureaucrat that could answer these two questions to your satisfaction. All U.S. Citizens should see the Movie or read “The Death of a Nation”.

Ken Bennett’s School Safety Operation Plan

     · Will put guns where necessary to protect our children.  The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

     · Tax credits for staff willing to be armed in the schools.

     · Law Enforcement officers into schools especially when a viable threat is identified to give immediate protection for our students while a threat is analyzed. - Christine Bauserman Campaign Manager, Bennett for Arizona - 520-235-2234.

US Senate Candidate Kelli Ward’s Husband Mike: We're still looking for citizen supporters to help us get our latest radio ads on the air. Can we count on you to step up and chip in today? The primary is now less than two weeks away and we want to use the little time we have left as effectively as possible. We have three radio ads out right now and you can preview two of them below. We're counting on you... help Kelli get more air time! Thanks for your support today. Onward to victory.

US Senate candidate Kelli Ward: We recently sent out a note about our August radio campaign, but wanted to make sure you didn't miss it...In short, we need help to continue running our new radio spots on the air. Chip in We cut a few brand new spots and it's critical we get them on the air ASAP -- especially with the primary in just two weeks! Here's our new spots The Only Mom and Trusted. We're rooting for our grassroots supporters to help us air spots like "The Only Mom" far and wide, and we're looking to get them on as many stations as we can.

Gubernatoral candidate Ken Bennett: If you own a gun in Arizona then you must read this, Governor Ducey will do anything to win this election and he really believes that his crazy plan to seize your guns will make schools safe. “I think the STOP plan — the Severe Threat Order of Protection — is the crown jewel of our safe schools plan,” the governor said Wednesday when questioned by Capitol Media Services. It would set up a procedure to allow not just police but family members and others to seek a court order to have law enforcement take an individual’s weapons while he or she is locked up for up to 21 days for a mental evaluation. “It’s the one tool that could have eliminated the mass shootings that have happened in other places in the country,” Ducey said.

Ken Bennett has a School Safety Operation Plan that will not remove guns but will put guns where necessary to protect our children.  The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. "Republican Ken Bennett has blasted Ducey’s idea that allowing judges to take away guns will make schools safer, proposing instead to train people to carry firearms on campus. That has earned him the endorsement of the political action committee of the Citizens Defense League.” Ken Bennett is running in the Republican primary for Governor.  Give Ken $5.00 to stop Ducey's STOP plan. "Governor Doug Ducey is doubling down on his push for a law to let judges take guns from some people considered “dangerous.”” Read the entire article here.
