·       Message From Veteran’s Convey Leader Peter Santilli To Sen John McCain: We The People demand that Senator John McCain get Veterans off the streets of Arizona by September 5th, 2015, or we will make his office their new home. (Editor’s Note: Last night a convoy that started in Cinncinati arrived in Phoenix, intent on getting Sen. John McCain’s attention on veterans affairs.)

Our Mission:  On September 5th (and until McCain responds appropriately) U.S. Military Veterans will descend upon Senator John McCain’s office at 2201 East Camelback Road Suite 115 Phoenix, AZ 85016 to demand that he be held accountable, arrested, tried and convicted for his shameful acts against the Veterans of the United States.  Homeless Veterans will march upon McCain’s office and fellow Veterans will demand that unless Senator McCain doesn’t immediately alleviate their homelessness, homeless Veterans will be encouraged to camp out and live at his office indefinitely as a visual reminder of his willful negligence. McCain has been given until September 5th to (a) put a roof over their head & give them an environment where they can get on their feet and become productive and (b) get them adequate healthcare they deserve.  Veterans are dying on waiting lists & 22 commit suicide every day!  If McCain has not fixed the issue; We The People will give our Veterans a new home until McCain decides to get off his butt an do what we tell him to do — Take Care Of Our Veterans!  Veterans will live at McCain’s office, and We The People will make sure they are not messed with until McCain solves the problem.

This will be a peaceful event intended for Veterans to bring awareness to John McCain’s despicable negligent conduct as a U.S. Senator:

1.     Veteran homelessness is Unacceptable, and will no longer be tolerated. Period.

2.     Failure to rectify inadequate and incompetent healthcare by the Veterans Administration, resulting in further injury and/or death to war fighter veterans who suffer from PTSD and TBI.

3.     Aiding & abetting the enemy of the United States of America in the War On Terror. John McCain has met with, supplied, assisted and supported ISIS/Al-Qaeda in Syria.

4.     Intentionally, willfully and has been directly involved in the cover-up of evidence regarding the attack on the U.S.S. Liberty by the Israeli Military.

5.     Abandoning untold numbers of POW/MIA’s from the Vietnam War.

·      Reader note: Your site is my “go to” every morning.  Up until Common Core coming into my kids’ life, I thought I was a good citizen reading and researching my candidates before I cast my vote.  It never occurred to me to actual call candidates let alone meet them.  I figured...they won’t care what one Mom has to say.  I feel very differently now.  During the last primary, your site enabled me to know when the candidates where coming to my area so I could look them in the eye and ask my questions about education policy.  After a while, some of the campaign staffers would see me coming and say “Common Core...right?”  I’d laugh and say Yes.  There are MANY Moms like me across the state who regularly check your site to likewise get to know their elected officials and those running and trying to earn their votes. Sometimes, I am “breaking news” to people by what I’ve learned from your site. Thanks for all you do. You make it easier to be involved in AZ politics---a place I never imagined I’d be.

·       Reports came in late Wednesday night that the Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC) Sergeant-at-Arms Barbara Medal was prohibited from attending the Sept 2 MCRC EGC meeting at AZGOP headquarters in Phoenix. Reports were confirmed this morning that AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham’s staffer Tim Seifert wouldn’t allow her to remain on the premises. Just prior to the start of the meeting, Seifert told Medal in front of one of the four Maricopa County Sheriff’s posse members assigned to meeting, that she was “trepassing.” How the MCRC EGC’s Sgt-At-Arms -  an elected county party official -  attending a county meeting at state headquarters can be deemed  “trespasser,”  remains a mystery. She left the building without an explanation.

Reports that circulated late last night that Graham had a restraining order on Medal are apparently errant, as Medal has not been served.  Graham, nor MCRC Chairman Tyler Bowyer have responded to today’s (Sept 3) Briefs e-mail questions. Both Graham and Bowyer’s phone messaging recorders said they were too full to leave a message. See related stories below:


·       AZGOP-Graham-Continues-Attack-On-Elderly-Woman  …Medal, a slight woman in her 70s, was order to leave the premises by GOP staffer Tim Seifert, but no reason was given.


·       Related story from Aug 5 MCRC EGC meeting:  GOP-Thugs"For every other woman that will be intimidated by these two little thugs, it will not be allowed to happen as long as I'm around," Medal said.   “...At 75 years old they probably think I'm a frail old lady, which I am," said Medal, who serves as the sergeant-at-arms for the Republican Party of Maricopa County. It's her job to keep order during meetings.


·       Immediate Past Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC) Chairman A J LaFaro:  Someone with courage is bold and brave, unafraid to face tough challenges.  Unlike the Cowardly Lion, who went all the way to the Emerald City to see if the Wizard had any courage to spare.

Those of you that voted against Andrew Costanzo's motion to immediately
adjourn last night’s MCRC EGC meeting and find a new venue less threatening to the
MCRC EGC members and attendees should be ashamed of yourselves.

As the MCRC Sergeant of Arms,  Barbara Medal put herself in harm’s way at the August 5, 2015 meeting on the behalf of several of you who asked her to stop the harassment and intimidation of the members and attendees. 

For Robert Graham and the AZGOP to treat the MCRC and Barbara Medal like
they have is outrageous, unacceptable and appears to be just more examples
of their authoritarian philosophies.  It's a sad day in Arizona's history that we have so many spineless establishment and cowardly lions who misrepresent themselves as leaders. --
A. J. LaFaro is also a National Director of the  Arizona Republican Assembly
