·        "In All My Years At City Hall I Have Never Witnessed Police Called To Break Up A Group In City Hall, Let Alone A Group Of Pastors Carrying Bibles." – Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio  -  On Wednesday, 35 Hispanic Pastors came to City Hall for a meeting to discuss the "Bathroom Bill" and the fact that religious institutions would now be subject to criminal penalties along with every single business owner in Phoenix.  Instead of being treated with the same respect any other group is afforded, they were treated to an unexpected visit from Phoenix Police.  Yes, somebody called the police on a quiet, peaceful meeting of Pastors.  I was there and saw the police come to break up the meeting.
                    The "Bathroom Bill" has been a serious concern for not just the religious and business communities, but for families with small children, as well.  It allows for grown men to be in the girl’s bathroom at playgrounds and restaurants in our city.  This is just like the food tax - done behind closed doors, rushed through at the last minute, lacking transparency and now attacking those individuals that disagreed with how it was done.  Now...it’s even worse. Now they are calling the police on those who don’t agree with their position.
                    Really? Police are called on a group of Pastors who were exercising their First Amendment rights to talk with their government? 
                    Today, these Pastors met with City Manager David Cavazos, Councilman Michael Nowakowski and myself to find out the following: 1) why were the police called on the Pastors; 2) who asked for the police; 3) what was specifically said to them to make them believe the Pastors were a threat. The meeting went well and the City Manager is following through on the request.
                    My issue is not with the police; they did their job. The real question is why were they called in the first place and who was the staffer who called them? -  Sal DiCiccio

·        Message from AZ Congressman David Schweikert: Obama's never-ending campaign has made me one of its top targets in Arizona. For the second time in two weeks, Obama's "Organzing for Action" has targeted my office for protests. First, they attacked my unwavering committment to the 2nd Amendment. Now, they are protesting my belief that we need smaller government and less spending to save our country.Obama is emboldened by the last election and is now using his Chicago-based campaign machine to target consitutional conservatives across the country. He thinks he can win and destroy conservatism once and for all-  prove him wrong.
