Thursday – Sept 24, 2015


·       LD22 PCs Mary and Tom Platt:  Not only would we like to know who this person is that sent out the information about the attorney, but also how did this person get all of our e-mail addresses??  We were told at past state and county meetings that our personal information was protected by the AZ GOP under Robert Graham’s authority.   We believe that Robert Graham should review this situation of personal data breach (of possibly all AZ precinct committee people) immediately and get it corrected.  Editor’s Note:  The Platt are referring to an anonymous message that went out to numerous Republican activist yesterday.  See 9-23-15-briefs


·       An Unsigned Memo That blasted Maricopa County Republican Chairman Tyler Bowyer for hiring a non-Republican attorney caused quite a flap as it circulated throughout Republican circles the past couple of days.  Some recipients of the e-mail are upset that the distributor(s)  accessed  private e-mail addresses. Others are disgusted that the writer didn’t sign his/her allegations. Others question what is really going on behind the scenes.  Was it to

a)     to reveal that a non-Republican attorney was appointed to represent the county Republican Committee?

b)     to discredit Bowyer?

c)     to cause disruption/distraction ?

And why

 a)  the nameless informant  didn’t confront Bowyer directly or take his/her allegations to the Executive Guidance Committee for an explanation before going public

And more importantly,  

a)  how county precinct committeemen e-mail addresses were accessed – which brings some to wonder if the unknown, unrecognized ‘sender’ name is bogus.

Hmmm.  Could this boomerang on the cowardly culprit before the dust settles?

·       Senate Candidate Clair Van Steenwyk: Gov. Walker, VP want-to-be,  joins the Elites of the GOP and asks others in the race for POTUS to join him. Walker’s message; "Today, I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive, conservative message can rise to the top of the field. With this in mind, I will suspend my campaign immediately,"Walker said at a news conference in Madison, Wisconsin. He encouraged other trailing Republican candidates to follow his path. "I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner," said Walker. Check out the Video:

     Gov. Walker stood up to Unions etc., however these comments prove once again the True Color of his politics and it's the same as Bush, Rubio, Christie and others who believe they know what a conservative is and that by his and their definition it isn't the Front Runner Mr. Trump. Any who doubted there is a concerted effort on the Part of GOP Leadership to pick who they want to win the Primary race and be the Candidate in the General please listen carefully and then decide.

         I don't believe anyone that supports any of these Political Elitists which are leading our Nation down the Road to Socialism. Those who’ve put themselves in positions of power have no intention of going quietly into the night. It's time for US in the GOP who understand the True Meaning of Patriotism and the US Constitution to stand against them and the pawns they give us to vote for and call it conservative, we know it's just more of the same old Bush I politics, that have led us down the road of Socialism and UN/World Government.”  www.vanussenate
