·       Former AZGOP Chairman Tom Morrissey: As a retired law enforcement officer who began his career in New York City, I must take issue with the social activist, Mayor DeBlasio, of that once great city. To encourage the likes of Al Sharpton, and the street demonstrators who so recently marched in the streets shouting “What do we want?  Dead cops!” is irrational and even traitorous to our way of life. My wife and I recently visited Brooklyn and stayed just blocks from where the two police officers were assassinated last Saturday.  To watch reports from the crime scene are chilling. The Brooklyn of today is very different from the Brooklyn where I spent my childhood. Unfortunately, the changes are not all for the better. I do believe, however, that the NYPD is as good, if not better, in their success at providing the necessary protection and safety of the citizens.  What is afoot today in New York and in other cities across this nation is a movement to break the back of law enforcement and cower the police into a position of hyper-political correctness.  The loudest voice of this movement is none other than the leadership and top law enforcement officer in this country. It is going on here in Phoenix as we witness the attempt to intimidate the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office by preventing them from carrying out their duties to protect the law-biding citizens of our community.  In this case it’s coming from the demonstrations wrought by a community activist and a federal judge.  I can tell you first-hand what goes on in the hearts and minds of our law enforcement officers across this great country as they begin their day.  They look at their children and their spouses as they take their badges and guns and head out the door under the clear reality that there is a chance that they will never see their family members again.  How tragic that our country’s “leaders” have added to that burden with political correctness that accomplishes nothing but heightened danger. God bless the families of officers Ramos and Liu. - Tom Morrissey, Chief Deputy US Marshal (Retired)

·        The Arizona Project will not meet again until Jan 5, 2015, according to Chr Ron Ludders. 602-677-1496

 

·       Alert from AZCDL: Breaking news .  By a 6 to 1 vote, the town council of Gilbert recently passed an ordinance allowing CCW permit holders to discreetly carry their firearms in city owned buildings.  Those without permits may still be asked to place their firearms in a storage locker. We applaud Councilman Victor Petersen for proposing the new procedure, and thank Mayor John Lewis and the Gilbert Council members who voted for passage of the new ordinance.  It’s a great move in the right direction towards eliminating victim disarmament zones. We encourage other Arizona municipalities to follow Gilbert’s lead! These alerts are a project of the Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL), an all-volunteer, non-profit, non-partisan grassroots organization.

 

·       Congressman David Schweikert,  Co-Chair of the Congressional Tunisian Caucus, following the release of the Tunisian Presidential Election results: “I wish to congratulate the Tunisian people on the success of their Presidential elections and the realization of their democratic aspirations,” said Schweikert. “Free and fair elections are the heart of any democracy. Four years after sparking the Arab Spring, Tunisia remains the only country to have successfully evolved from authoritarian rule to a country based on a freedom and fairness for all.The achievements over the last year have laid the groundwork for a prosperous and democratic Tunisia. Congratulations to President-elect Beji Caid Essebsi on his victory. While many challenges lay ahead, I look forward to working with President-elect Essebsi and members of Tunisia’s new government to address those challenges and forge a closer bond between our two countries.”

 

·       Speaker Elect David Gowan: “The killing of two New York City police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, while they sat in their patrol car was tragic,” said Speaker-elect David Gowan. “It was an attack not only on the NYPD, but on all of us who believe in the rule of law. The professionalism of the NYPD immediately following the killings and in the days afterward was extraordinary,” said Speaker-elect Gowan. “It demonstrates the strong commitment that the men and women of the NYPD have to providing a safe and secure environment to all. As my deepest sympathies and prayers go out to the families of the fallen officers of the NYPD, I also want us to remember in our prayers this Christmas season, Arizona’s own fallen and their families. Chandler Police Officer David Payne, Phoenix Detective John Hobbs and Salt River Police Officer Jair Cabrera were also killed in the line of duty in 2014. May God bless them and their families.”
