·       Daisy Mountain Tea Party Patriots Chairman Vera Anderson says it all when she said, “Now that school has started parents should be aware of what is going on in the classrooms.” President Obama and US Education Sec. Arne Duncan have huge plans to make CTE (Career & Technical Education) take center stage in an effort to control individual choices as early as possible in each citizen’s life. (Ssee Sec. Duncan’s white house speech and what CTE and Career Academies are about: obamas-career-tracking-and-education-reforms-so-much-more-than-common-core We should be concerned about CTE, Career Academies, SLDS systems, P-20 tracking, or any of the pushy ways in which government tells kids who to be –and who they’ll never be.  University of Tennessee tells staff and students to stop using 'he' and 'she' - and switch to 'xe', 'zir' and 'xyr' instead.  PC is out of control and absurd and must stop! Please invite concerned parents, grandparents and other's to this meeting, it's important! Vera Anderson veraanderson41@gmail.com

·       Sedona PC Warren Woodward w6345789@q.com :   I went the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) website today to listen to the audio archive of their Staff Meeting which occurred yesterday. On the agenda was what to do about "dark money" campaign contributions to ACC candidates. That item was placed on the agenda by commissioners Susan Smith and Bob Burns. Both are up for election next time and I guess they finally realized (or some other Republicans clued them in) that APS's dark money contributions are more of a liability than a help at this point. In short, the issue has become something of a PR nightmare. But no such dark money discussion took place. It turns out commissioner Doug Little exercised his right to pull an agenda item. Why would he do that? Perhaps it's because he and ACC commissioner Tom Forese benefited from some $3.2 million in dark money in the last election. Arizona Republic's Laurie Roberts nails Little here: corporation-commission, aps-dark-money

 

·       LD28 First Vice Chair Thomas Haney:  I saw that someone wrote in being chagrined about LD4 not allowing "Van", as Van Steenwyk is called, speak at their meeting.  I want you to know that LD28 has scheduled and confirms that Clair Van Steenwyk, a candidate for the US Senate in the Republican Primary next year, will be speaking at the District's regular monthly meeting Sept. 8, a Tuesday.  All P.C. of 28 will be there, and so can those from other Districts, signing in as guests.  The meeting is at Madison School District Meeting Hall, 16th Street & Missouri, Phx, at 7 p.m.

 

·       Evelyn's Story  Congresswoman Martha. McSally has delivered an American flag that was flown over the U.S. Capitol to Evelyn Tuthill, a two and a half year-old girl from Tucson.  At three and a half months-old, Evelyn was diagnosed with a rare gene mutation that causes seizures and her brain to atrophy. According to her mother, Haley, because there is no international registry for the condition, Evelyn is the only known person in the world with this mutation. The condition causes Evelyn over 100 seizures a day. 

·       The Arizona Project will meet at 6:30 pm., Mon, Aug 31 “ at 3375 E Shea Blvd, Phx., to discuss ballot harvesting as related to the Tuesday Phoenix City Election, and to hear Walter Franklin, described as a political newcomer who intents to promote an inside the GOP movement called “Republic Under God" (RUG) whose most significant goal is to repeal the 17th Amendment to the Constitution. The 17th Amendment allows US Senators to be elected directly by the people rather than by the several state legislatures as required by the Constitution at that time, according to AP Chairman Ron Ludders.   Contact: Ronald Ludders, Chairman 602.677.1496

 

·       The Arizona Project is planning a Wed., Sept 16  "Debate Party And Poor Folks Steak Fry".  (Hot dogs and cowboy beans) at 3375 E Shea Blvd, Phx., to watch the debate from the Reagan Library, hosted by CNN’s Jake Tapper with questions from Hugh Hewitt. Contact: Ronald Ludders, Chairman 602.677.1496

 

·       Long-Time GOP Activist Joe Borrajero: AZRRT Call To Action --  Reports have been surfacing regarding the apparent widespread use of ballot harvesting regarding the current Phoenix city election. This practice is perfectly legal, however... It would have been outlawed by Senate bill SB1340 introduced by Senator Don Shooter during the 2015 AZ Legislative Session, but that bill failed. It passed in the Senate pretty much along party lines, but was killed by Heather Carter in the House Elections Committee when she joined Democrats in defeating it.

ü  Vote that Killed SB1340

ü  Arizona Daily Independent Article on Ballot Harvesting

ü  AFA Alert on Ballot Harvesting

If you think that the practice of ballot harvesting is wrong, then you should do the following:

o   Contact state senators and representatives, and suggest that they introduce and/or support legislation to stop the practice of ballot harvesting.

Before The Legislative Session Opens In January:

o   Subscribe to the AZ Legislature Information System (ALIS) Request to Speak program (RTS) so that you can have a voice in the legislative process. How to Use ALIS

o   Request to be placed in the distribution lists of various watchdog organizations, like AZRRT, AFA, AZDI, AFP, and others.

o   Take lessons from the Center for Self Governance, on how to become an effective citizen-lobbyist.

o   Contact people you know and request that they do the same. Twitter at www.twitter.com/azrrt1  Facebook at www.facebook.com/azrrt

 

·       Congressman Matt Salmon on news that a federal judge ruled against the Environmental Protection Agency’s “Waters of the United States” rule: “Yesterday, a federal judge granted a preliminary injunction against the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) onerous  “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) rule. This is a welcome, although temporary, victory that is desperately needed by hardworking American families. From its inception, I and many of my colleagues have worked to oppose this bad rule. In fact, the House of Representatives voted to rein in this out-of-control EPA by blocking the implementation of the WOTUS rule with bipartisan support.  Obviously, the EPA’s credibility continues to decline. The agency’s role in the recent, catastrophic dumping of millions of gallons of toxic sludge into our rivers clearly demonstrates that it could not handle the responsibilities it had before issuing its misguided and oppressive WOTUS rule. Going forward, I will continue to work with my colleagues to rein in this rogue agency and to defend Arizona’s precious water resources.”

 

·       Attorney General Mark Brnovich  has announced that yesterday, Federal District Court Judge Ralph Erickson issued an order in delaying the effective date of the Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corp of Engineers’ “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) Rule in Arizona and 12 other states.  The rule was originally scheduled to take effect today, August 28, 2015. Arizona previously joined with 12 other states in a legal challenge asking the federal court to delay the effective date of the WOTUS Rule because of the irreparable harm it would cause the states.  Brnovich contends that the EPA’s expansion of federal authority over Arizona waters is unlawful and that the agency failed to follow their required procedures.

Brnovich remarked, “Yesterday’s ruling is an important first step in preventing federal overreach under the guise of environmental protection.  It is critical that states like Arizona and our state coalition partners continue to make principled stands against federal overreach and to preserve the rule of law.” In support of the states’ claims that the EPA’s Final Rule harmed states’ interests, the State of Arizona offered testimony that the State would be irreparably harmed by the Final Rule due to the time, resources and increased costs necessary to comply with the rule’s dramatic increase in permitting requirements for the Arizona Department of Transportation. The 13 states exempted for now are Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.   Contact: Ryan Anderson (602) 542-8302 or Ryan.Anderson@azag.gov
