·       And Speaking Of RSVP’s.  There are a lot of activities starting again this fall and one of the most common complaints we hear is that people don’t RSVP.  Come on folks, it common courtesy  and only takes a few seconds to reply yes or no to an invitation. And it certainly makes a difference to the hosts/hostesses who are trying to make adequate preparations for their guests.

 

·        AJ LaFaro, Immediate Past Chairman Of The Maricopa County Republican Committee: I had a great meeting with the AzRA North West Maricopa County Chapter on 10/11, Saturday. I appreciate everyone's interest and help getting the message out on Voter Fraud (ballot harvesting, stuffing and tampering), Closing the Primaries and why Arizona's conservative Republicans should join AzRA.

 

·       The Arizona College and Young Republicans are hosting a happy house with Congressman Paul Gosar at 6 pm., Sat., Oct 17 at Bobby’s Restaurant & Lounge, 7122 E Greenwy Pkway, Scottsdale, AZ.  Cocktails and appetizers provided. RSVP to Perry at 928-830-6115.

 

·       Former LD9 Chairman Ray Spitzer regarding tonight’s Dem Debate: At the end of the debate, we saw the candidates getting a hug and kiss from their wives and kids, except one.  Hillary was alone except for a handler who followed her around.  Bubba Clinton was nowhere to be found, and I think it was on purpose.  Bubba would steal the spotlight, for one.  The second is that Roger Stone's new book, "The Clintons War on Women" came out today, and it lists many more women Bubba has molested, groped, and raped than we ever knew.  And, it came to light that Bubba was tossed out of Oxford, and did not graduate.  This from an institution that has a 99% graduation rate.  Why was Bubba unable to graduate?  He was expelled and told to return to America after women came forward and accused Bubba of assault and rape.  So, despite the media calling Bubbs a Rhodes Scholar, it's not true.  He was expelled...

·       Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement at the conclusion of the first Democrat Primary Debate: “The Democrat debate was a predictably stale evening of liberal politicians proposing to spend trillions more that we don’t have. Considering the weak caliber of Clinton’s competition, it speaks volumes that she continues to flip-flop and change positions in an attempt to save her faltering campaign. Clinton’s record of hypocrisy and flip-flops on everything from Wall Street, trade, immigration, and foreign policy was on full display. Her unwillingness to fully explain the circumstances surrounding her secret email server, and the ongoing FBI investigation into it, further damages her credibility.  Judging from tonight, it’s clear why the Democrat National Committee limited the number of debates – their bench of candidates for the most powerful office in the world is laughable at best. Clinton needed to shine and she came up short."

 

·       John McCain will formally launch his Hispanic Coalition “Unidos Con McCain”  at 11 am., Thurs., Oct 15 at El Mercado De Los Cielos (Inside of Desert Sky Mall), 7537 W. Thomas Rd. Phoenix, AZ 85033. Parking is available near the 75th Avenue entrance to the Mall.

·       McCain: U.S. must stop Putin in Syria  “Russia's military intervention in Syria on behalf of President Bashar al-Assad is the latest disastrous turn in the Middle East under the Obama administration -- and another humiliating setback for the United States.

·       US Sens John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC on reports that the Assad regime backed by Russian airpower and thousands of Iranian troops are preparing for an offensive to retake Aleppo, Syria: “Reports of an impending Assad regime offensive to retake Aleppo, backed by Russian air power and thousands of Iranian troops, if true, would be the latest low point for the Administration's disgraceful Syria policy. How many times does this President need to be mugged by reality before he recognizes his mistakes, shows some leadership, and changes course. President Jimmy Carter did as much after Russia invaded Afghanistan. Is it too much to ask President Obama to do the same now that Russia and Iran are mounting a campaign to slaughter what is left of the moderate opposition in Syria on behalf of Bashar Assad?”

·       US Senate Candidate Clair Van Steenwyk asks all in AZ LDs, GOP groups & clubs to join in on the Rally Against Common Core in Phoenix on Saturday 10/17/15 @ 10:30 am, so those in office will see that we haven't forgotten the promises made to stop Common Core and we expect them to follow through on those promises or to step aside and let others join the fight with US by their sides to Protect Our Kids from the Data Gathering planned by Common Core. We hope all who have joined us at other Rally's at the Capitol will join us at this one which may prove to be the most important one we've been involved in, hope to see you there and be sure to spread the news to others.
