·       AZGOP threatens to have PCs arrested!  Reports from the INFAMOUS closed meeting! The riff-raff PCs not allowed into the meeting interviewed several folks who...


·       Who's Responsible For Changing Primary Election?? See State Statutes  “…Election Laws as with all laws for the state of Arizona are the responsibility of the Elected representative of the House and Senate of the state and must be signed by the Governor.”


·       AZGOP Leaders-Meet-To-Discuss-2016-Victory-Strategy: Grahams viewpoint   “The committee voted overwhelmingly against a motion to spend party contributions to close the primary election. A vote to recess the meeting to allow for further review of the issue of closing the primary was also defeated.”


·       Graham Report Conflicts With State Committee Attendees “Not one person mentioned any discussion of strategy for 2016, not one person said it was anything but a waste of time except one said they got a brief look at the Treasurer's Report for the first quarter but no handouts so they could look more closely.  They do agree that they approved a budget but they agree; they have no idea what is in it because there were no details, even vague ones.  We would like to see a report from the AZGOP of the meeting the voting members who reported to AFA went to.  He was apparently there and commanding the meeting.  And no one said the vote was overwhelming to leave the primary open. In fact, no one ever got a head count and there was no real ballot and no one can even agree as to how that vote actually turned out.  What the State Committeemen actually did was vote Overwhelmingly at the statutory meeting in January to close the primary.  That is the vote that matters.  The Ex Com is not autonomous!

·       Republican-PCs-Threatened-With-Arrest-At-AZ-GOP-HQ.  First person account of April 18, 2015 AZ GOP newly closed executive meeting by LD 28 PC


·       Editor’s Note:  When expressing opinions, lease limit commentary to 300 words. Frosty Taylor


·       LD27 PC Art Olivas: We must say thank you to all Conservative Grassroots Republicans that supported Peggy McClain's Protest Rally at the AZGOP HQ. When we got there at about 8:35am. We were greeted by Sheriff Deputies that informed us that we were to stay out on the side walk and off GOPs Property! I asked by whose orders? His answer was orders from inside. I informed him that nobody inside owned the place. I also told him that I was calling Sheriff Joe to let him know I was a PC and a STATE PC as were most of us here. The people inside worked for us not us for them. We then said Robert Graham, Chad Heywood nor Tyler Bowyer own our Republican office. After all was said and done all the Sheriff Deputies left. About 20minutes later the Phoenix city police Detective Peralta arrived and informed us that Tim Sifert the Communications Director had call them. He agreed with us, but asked us to stay off the drive way so we would not get run over. We had some people inside and will have a full report later. One thing we were told is that Robert Graham was very upset with the Briefs for reporting about the closed meeting! And Tyler Bowyer chimed in saying something about the Briefs not being an official some thing or other. But the conclusion was that he was in full support of John McCain's Robert Graham


·       Matt Papke - LD26 1st Vice Chair:  Our founders pledged their fortunes, lives and sacred honor to stand up to the British Crown and free humankind. I find it beyond the pale that my Party leadership lacks this courage. If only even the will to draw swords against an obvious assassin.

We have let too many too deep into our ranks and the night of long knives has already begun. Senator John McCain slew many well intended and passionate grassroots PCs via his progressively funded Arizona Grassroots Action PAC. And now with our rear guard in disarray we have been struck again from behind our own lines. It is time to realize there are enemies within our ranks and they are operating with help from outside our walls. There is no sacred honor with in this corps of corpses; nor pledged fortunes to shore up our granaries or armories, only deceit and subterfuge. It saddens me to see the great men and women, the 3% who are willing to pledge their fortunes, lives and sacred honor be hewn down by those they relied upon to defend them.

The Republican Party is dying a slow and ignorant death. Americans are not voting in Republicans because they love them, they are voting them in because they hate Democrats more than Republicans. America is want of a true message and a true leader who will not sway with the changing winds and will stand for conservative values.

Why we would look to non-party members to choose our candidates is beyond me, unless it is to champion the status quo and quell the brushfires of liberty stoked by the keepers of the flame. Let us stand fast in our values and put forth our best representative of these values allowing the true war of ideas begin, If our Republican party cannot stand for the values engrained in its platform then who will?


·       LD15 PC/State Committeeman Jackie Phillips:  Chairman Robert Graham I want to thank you for your phone call today in which you expressed your disappointment about my posting to you in the Briefs.  See original letter 4-19-15-briefs.  I appreciate you giving me your phone number for open dialog, I will certainly speak to you directly in the future. I thank you for going over some of the hurdles for the Close Primary and as we all know this is going to be a long process. I am very encouraged that you will be reaching out to get us all involved. There is more than one avenue and we need to look at every hurdle, every angle to get this accomplished in the most effective way. I am looking forward to hearing a list of options for proceeding and future fund raising. As we agree it will take all of us for this to be a success. The journey will not be short or easy but will all of us it can succeed.

·        Sen John McCain on remarks made Thursday by General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, diminishing the possible fall of Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province in Iraq, to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL): “Before and during the Iraq surge in 2006 and 2007, 187 U.S. service members were killed and more than 1,150 wounded while fighting on our nation’s behalf in Ramadi, including Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor winner Michael Monsoor, who gave his own life to save those of his comrades. Yet the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Thursday stated that Ramadi – which is under assault by ISIL forces today – ‘is not symbolic in any way’ and is not ‘central to the future of Iraq.’ This unbelievable statement is an insult to all those brave Americans who served and sacrificed in Ramadi, and the families and loved ones who miss them so dearly.”
