·       Chairman Salmon Rejects Use Of U.S. Military Force In Syria: Remains unconvinced intervention in Syria is in America’s national interest after today’s hearing --Today, Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, released the following statement regarding this afternoon’s Foreign Affairs hearing on the use of military force in Syria and the testimonies by Secretary of State John Kerry, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey.  

“This morning, we heard President Obama emphatically state that ‘the world set a red-line’ regarding the use of chemical weapons by Bashar al-Assad’s regime. Given his statement, I felt it was appropriate to ask Secretary Kerry during his testimony if the world would join the United States in responding with multi-lateral military force. Unfortunately, Secretary Kerry’s response was unconvincing and led me to believe that the United States would be left to strike unilaterally and without a broad coalition of other nations.

During today’s hearing, the Obama Administration had an opportunity to make their case for military intervention in Syria’s long-standing civil war. After listening to today’s testimony, I am, at this time, opposed to the use of U.S. military force because the Administration failed to present a convincing argument that the events in Syria pose a clear threat to America, failed to list a strong coalition of nations willing to support military attacks, and failed to articulate a clear definition of victory. While the use of chemical weapons should not be tolerated by any nation or regime, the Administration has not clearly answered these important questions, and therefore, has yet to convince the American people that military action is necessary at this time.”


·       A Question Arose This Week As To How Many Arizona People Voted On The Resolutions approved by the Republican National Committeemen at their Aug 16 meeting.  According to AZ RNC Bruce Ash: “The RNC has 168 members - Each state and six territories have a chair + the NCM and NCW's for each. All eligible to vote.”  So – that’s  AZ National Committeeman Ash, AZ National Committeewoman Sharon Geise, and AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham vote.

·       The RNC’s New Website, Obamacarecosts.Org, will provide voters with state-specific facts on ObamaCare and the latest news on the implementation train wreck—information they can use to hold Democrats accountable for the disastrous law in 2014. Each week the RNC will release a video of real news stories highlighting the costs of ObamaCare to Americans around the country. This week’s video, “ObamaCare Costs: Colorado,” shows the difficult choice facing Coloradans: going into debt or paying a fine in order to comply with ObamaCare.


·       The RNC has also launched a petition page to let voters make their voices heard. Throughout the month, the RNC will continue spotlighting local news stories about ObamaCare costs and promote the campaign through surrogate and media affairs operations. Americans can join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #ObamaCosts.


·       “Raise The Standard” Featuring Glenn Beck & Glenn Kimber, will be presented Oct 11 at the Comerica Theatre in Phoenix and Oct 12 at the Clearview Cultural Center in Mesa.  For tickets:

·       Speaker Of The House Andy Tobin (R-LD1) And House Transportation Committee Chairman Karen Fann (R-LD1) recently  toured the site of a 500 foot segment of US Highway 89 which has been inaccessible since February 20 of this year. The stretch of highway, approximately 25 miles South of Page, Arizona was broken apart due to a landslide. The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) and the Navajo Nation Division of Transportation (Navajo DOT) have constructed an alternate route (aka US 89T) that will allow local residents to resume North and Southbound traffic between Page and Tuba City, Arizona which would otherwise require an additional 45 mile detour.

Speaker Tobin said, “I could not be more proud of how quickly ADOT and the Navajo Nation partnered together to provide this alternative route around this geologically stressed site. There is no doubt that the people of this region of our state were well served by the end result of this great example of intergovernmental cooperation.”

Fann commented, “ADOT and the Navajo Nation have done an outstanding job of responding to the unforeseen event that hit this rural part of our state. Truly, it is remarkable how quickly the alternative route was completed which clearly demonstrates the level of effectiveness and efficiency our transportation services operate with,” stated Fann.
