·       Say What??? MSNBC-Host: Kids Belong To Whole Communities “We have to break through our private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families,” says the professor of political science at Tulane University, where she is founding director of the Anna Julia Cooper Project on Gender, Race, and Politics in the South. Kids belong to whole communities, she insists, and once we realize this we’ll make “better investments” in government indoctrination of children.

·       This Morning AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham criticized the 5-4 majority decision of the United States Supreme Court in Arizona State Legislature v. Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission. The Commission was created in 1998 by a voter initiative to prevent the legislature from changing district lines when required by changes in population. But rather than having maps drawn by legislators who are elected to two-year terms, the maps are drawn by members of the Commission who are appointed to ten year terms.

“It is baffling that the majority on the Supreme Court is allowing a cure that’s worse than the disease,” said Graham. “If gerrymandering is such a problem, then frequent elections and accountability to voters is much better medicine than an unelected commission accountable to no one. We’re watching history in the making, unfortunately, as the Court disregards our constitutional principles and ignores the truth. It is no surprise that the unelected Court is siding with an unelected Commission, although I am encouraged by the irreverence of the dissents in this case, especially when calling the majority’s actions a ‘magic trick.’”

“As a party that unifies voters and nominates candidates, it is now more important than ever that we elect candidates who support constitutional principles and who will nominate and confirm judges that will uphold our Constitution. It is perfectly clear that the progressive left now dominates the courts and any potential scenario in which Hillary Clinton appoints justices must never happen. Never. That’s why we need Republicans to unite to stop the leftists from feeding our Constitution through the shredder and destroying our nation.”

·       The Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family has selected the Governor’s Youth Commission (GYC) class of 2015 – 2016 doubling the number of youth serving Arizona, with representation from all 15 counties.  This year the GYC will focus on substance abuse, bullying, teen dating violence, texting and civics education, in their respective counties.  Youth will be working to take the lead in mobilizing their peers to bring about positive change. “We couldn’t be more excited to work with this talented pool of young men and women to see how they will better the state of Arizona through their collective efforts” shared the GOYFF Director, Debbie Moak.
