·       Republicans Activist Are Wondering what happened to all those glowing reports of growing voter registrations that they’ve been fed by party leaders.  When Secretary of State Michelle Regan’s voter registration report came out last week, alert activists were quick to note a 255 GOP voter increase while Independents are up 24,311.  So where are all those new registered voters we’ve been told the AZGOP was getting???  One astute fellow pointed out that Republicans are actually down 6,883 since the beginning of the year. 
                            Democrats     Republicans    Independent
Jan 2015              933,883         1,113,991        1,167,083   
Jul 2015               922,120         1,107,108        1,191,394
Difference             -11,763              -6,883           +24,311
The Yellow Sheet reports AZGOP Robert Graham as saying the Democrats are putting on a “shameful performance.”   Better look in the mirror Chairman Graham, it doesn’t appear the GOP figures are anything to brag about. Independents are running circles around both the GOP and the Dems.  See
Active_Voter_Count.pdf  and Michele Reagan report  here.

·       Unite Or Die: The ‘Hobbits’ Plan To Take Over The GOP


·       Record-42.1 M-Immigrants-In-US-Mexicans-Drive-Latest-Surge   … A new analysis of legal and illegal immigrant counts by the Census Bureau revealed Thursday that there is a record 42.1 million in the United States, an explosion that is being driven by Mexicans flooding across the border. In a report by the Center for Immigration Studies, the total immigrant population surged 1.7 million since 2014. The growth was led in the last year by an additional 740,000 Mexican immigrants. The 42.1 million tabulated by Census in the second quarter represent over 13 percent of the U.S. population, the biggest percentage in 105 years. What's more, the numbers of immigrants coming and going from the U.S. is actually higher since many return home every year, said the report. "For the immigrant population to increase by one million means that significantly more than one million new immigrants must enter the country because some immigrants already here return to their homeland each year and natural mortality totals 250,000 annually," said the Center.


·       California Gave Driver's Licenses To More Than 1.5M Illegals California isn't the only state that offers driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants, but surveys claim there is less citizen support for such policies in those states.
