McCain-Fumbled-His-Inquiry-During-Comey-Hearing-Because-Of-Graham Calling his line of questioning during former FBI Director James Comey’s June 8 testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee “a colossal screw-up,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said he got distracted by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) just minutes before it was his turn to question Comey. During an interview with Esquire last week, McCain said his staff had meticulously prepared for the hearing, but he messed up by asking questions about why the FBI was still pursuing the investigation into Russia meddling in the 2016 election when it had already ended the probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, even though those are two separate investigations that had nothing to do with each other. McCain told Esquire that a staffer had given him an iPhone with an email from Graham displayed on it, asking McCain to ask Comey some additional questions. McCain didn’t have the password for the iPhone and claimed that after the phone went black he couldn’t unlock it to keep reading. See more mccain-fumbled

Editor’s Note: Please keep opinion pieces to 400 words.

LD14 PC Jere Fredenburgh: Is anyone in the AZGOP doing anything to prepare for the 2020redistricting?  2010 the Dems put in an 'independent' ... to do so she had to register as an independent THREE years in advance....we are at that
three year mark.  What is AZGOP doing??? 

LD29 PC Michael Meacham: "Because of Gracia" - Anyone who is Christian (born again or not) and pro-life, needs to go see and support this movie. In addition to its pro-life/pro-Christian theme, it is an excellent movie. It also defends the right of Christians to not be silenced or treated as second class citizens. We need to show Hollywood that movies like this can be profitable. It is showing now through Wednesday at Harkins Park West in Peoria, and Harkins Superstition Springs. Take your kids, (10 & up should be ok. Because I worked for DES for 11 years, I know of cases where 9 and 10 yr. old girls got pregnant here in the valley. Don't bury your head in the sand and think yours are too young.)

Rep. Trent Franks, a former CEO and member of the fiscally conservative Republican Study Committee, discussed his tax reform priorities with FOX News Sunday afternoon. . Here are some his quotes:

      1. "This president has the 'get it done' attitude... he has more business acumen than any president in recent history."

     2. "It would be very hard to vote against any reform of this tax code... the bottom line, if we're going to help the poor in this country, nothing has helped them more than a tax code that [incentivizes] productivity and efficiency, and that has dragged more poor people out of poverty than anything else..."

     3. "Sometimes when you try to compromise with people that have an empathetical view of free markets and tax reform and don't really know much about business there are a lot of inherent dangers in that regard."

Rep. Trent Franks on Monday morning CNN’s New Day suggested “North Korea doesn't want to attack the U.S. -- they watched the Iran Deal; they are bluffing their way into greater compensation.” Additionally, he stated, He “could end up voting for the Graham-Cassidy bill when it comes to the House.

Organizing for Action … I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called "Organizing for Action" (OFA). OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that our current president’s administration is trying to do. This organization goes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws?
