A VFW Lincoln Post 1483 signs reads: “Background checks good idea, Mr. President. Let’s start with you.”

April 14, 2013
·        Services for Mary Doney – A patriot who, at the age of 101, was the oldest active Tea Party member in the nation has passed away.  Doney was photographed with Frank Luntz at the recent Arizona Patriots Meeting.  Visitation will be held from 3-5 pm, April 15 at Melcher Mortuary, 6625 E. Main St., Mesa.  Her memorial service is scheduled starting at 10 am, April 16 at Holy Cross Catholic Church, 1244 S. Power Road, Mesa.
·        Services For James Bearup: The Celebration of Life will be held on April 16, 2013, at Hansen Mortuaries Desert Hills Memorial Park, 6500 East Bell Road, Scottsdale.

·        Let Flake/McCain Hear From You: First of all, every time Congress brings forth a bill that is "comprehensive," you can bet that it will a) contain a lot of pork, and b) it will not fix the problem, but will exacerbate it.
     My message to these two Senators is a) no legislation that does not call for a secure and controlled border first, and that security must be verified by Congress not DHS or the President.  And, b) if the border is deemed secure, or when it's deemed secure and controlled, then submit legislation to deal with those here illegally.  Until that time, no legislation will be to the benefit of American citizens.  What McCain and Flake have been doing with their posturing is turning a blind eye on THEIR state and its citizens in favor of currying favor with the boys and girls in their clubhouse, so they can "feel good" about themselves.
     Don't let them get away with it.  We need thousands of Arizonans to contact them and tell them secure and control the border first, then talk to Americans about dealing with those who broke the law to sneak into our country and get all the freebies.  No More. http://www.flake.senate.gov/contact.cfmhttp://www.mccain.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Contact.contactform
     For those living in other states, locate your senators using a search engine, and tell them No Amnesty, and Secure and Control the Border FIRST. – Ray Spitzer, veteran, Chr Sun City West Republican Club and a former LD9 Chairman.

·        LD13 Chairman Robert Branch: “Laws only restrain law-abiding citizens, not the criminals. Why do law-abiding citizens pass laws to further restrain law-abiding citizens every time criminals break the law?” … Everyone should read Frédéric Bastiat.

And when once the law is on the side of socialism, how can it be used against socialism?” For more information on The Law of Bastiat go to: http://bastiat.org/en/the_law.html#SECTION_G004

·        Deja Vu! Another Dead Diplomat, Another Obama WH Story Change   The deaths of U.S. diplomatic personnel — and the State Department’s changing account of how they died — raise echoes for some of the security failures in Benghazi, Libya, where Islamist extremists killed four Americans in assaults on the U.S. diplomatic compound Sept. 11. The State Department has acknowledged that five Americans killed in Afghanistan, including 25-year-old diplomat Anne Smedinghoff, were on foot when they were caught in the blast of a suicide bomber, and not in an armored vehicle as officials told bereaved relatives earlier this week.
