·       "This Court-Ordered Email Release is another reminder of why Hillary Clinton cannot be trusted in the White House," Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement. "The hundreds of additional emails found to contain classified information and ongoing FBI investigation illustrate just how badly Hillary Clinton jeopardized national security and misled the American people."

Ave.  Sun City AZ.  Speakers: US Senate candidate Dr. Kelli Ward, a two term Arizona legislator and incumbent Arizona Senate candidate Debbie Lesko.

·       The Arrowhead Republican Women’s Executive Board has revised its position on allowing non-seated political candidates time to speak at their regular monthly meetings.  Candidates are welcome to speak for two minutes IF time is available on the agenda and they have permission of the presiding President. The ladies are planning a Candidates Forum in June.  Tba.   Wise gals, some of these wannabees can talk a dog off a meat wagon and not say anything. – Editor Frosty Taylor

 

·       The State Department Releases 7,000 Pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails—the agency’s largest release to date—as the White House decides not to release emails between President Obama and the former secretary of state, a senior administration official confirmed to Fox News.  See no-plans-to-release-obama-clinton-emails-until-2017

 

·       The  Arrowhead Republican Women will meet Wed., Nov 11 at Briarwood Country Club, 135th Ave/Meeker Blvd, Sun City West to hear Supt of Public Instruction Diane Douglas address the state’s educational issues.

·       This Afternoon AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham congratulated Governor Doug Ducey and legislative Republicans for their work during today’s special session to pass legislation to increase school funding by tapping into revenue generated by state trust lands. And Graham chided the state’s Democratic Party for failing to nominate a single candidate for the office of State Treasurer, which has oversight over state trust land. “This is Republican leadership at its best, being innovative and solving problems without raising taxes.” said Graham. “And it’s just ironic that the Democrats, who try to appear so education-friendly, wouldn’t jump at the chance to spend more money to help Arizona children? Now some in their party claim that they can’t support this plan because they want to protect the land trust. If those funds were so important to Democrats you have to wonder why they couldn’t even field a single candidate in this state to run for state treasurer."

 

·       Jan Martinson, First Vice President - Arrowhead Republican Women:  Where the Cuts Should Be Made - You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The Government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my friends, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

The Cato Institute released an updated 2014 study showing that welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 states and the District of Columbia. Even worse, welfare pays more than $15.00 per hour in 13 states. According to the study, welfare benefits increased faster than minimum wage. It’s now more profitable to sit at home and watch TV than it is to earn an honest day’s pay.

Here Is A Partial List of the states where the pre-tax equivalent “salary” that welfare recipients receive, per year, is higher than having a job!

ü  Hawaii: $60,590

ü  DC: $50,820

ü  Massachusetts: $50,540

ü  Conn: $44,370

ü  New York: $43,700

ü  New Jersey: $43,450

ü  California: $37,160

ü  Nevada: $29,820

Note that California is $18.50 an hour (to stay home) and NO workie! Nancy Pelosi will retire, as Speaker of the House, at $223,500 per year for LIFE.  I think I have found where the cuts should be made!  Borrowed from the Arrowhead Republican Women newsletter

Candidate Corner

Please comply with the 300 word limit policy

 

·       US Senate Candidate Alex Meluskey:  I really want you to get to know me. I want to Earn your support. I want you to know where I stand on some of the most important issues facing America. I also would be honored to host you at our Campaign HQ Open house.

ü  Veterans - Our representatives and the Veteran’s Administration have failed our brave veterans. My number one priority in the U.S. Senate will be to FIGHT for those who have fought for the freedom of us all.

ü  LIFE - I am staunchly pro-life, and will FIGHT to see the human traffickers at Planned Parenthood prosecuted.

ü  Taxation – As the FAIRtax State director in Arizona I will FIGHT to abolish this unjust system of confiscatory taxation and replace it with a system that is fair, flat and which taxes consumption, not labor to capture the revenue of the underground economy.

ü  Border Security and Immigration - Border security IS National security, but focusing on the border alone leaves us vulnerable. We must secure ALL points of entry into the United States. Amnesty of any form is unacceptable.

ü  Israel - There is only one true ally to the United States. Israel is that ally, and we must stand ALWAYS with the Jewish state. Our leaders MUST take an active role in preparing the damage done to our relationship by the Obama administration.

ü  Limited Government- The federal government is a product of the Constitution, not the other way around. As such, the government’s power is LIMITED to those enumerated. We must FIGHT to make sure the constitution is respected and followed.

I can assure you, when I reach the U.S. Senate I will FIGHT in order to represent the values of the citizens of Arizona. Website https://www.meluskey.com/   Blog  alexs-blog/

 

·       US Senate Candidate Dr. Kelli Ward: Fellow conservative, you probably didn’t know it while it was happening - because it was done under cover of darkness, at 3am - but by now you’ve likely heard that Congress has passed a budget “deal” which is now set to be signed by President Obama. This agreement was created behind closed doors, increases federal spending by $85 billion, raises our national debt ceiling another $1.5 trillion, and continues to send taxpayer money to fund the barbaric practices of Planned Parenthood. Both John McCain and Representative Ann Kirkpatrick, the likely Democrat Party nominee for U.S. Senate next year, voted for it.

To stop this type of reckless and unprincipled conduct in Washington, I need your help.    Rep Kirkpatrick’s vote is no surprise. She is a big-government liberal Democrat. Sadly, it’s getting harder and harder to be surprised by John McCain’s actions, either. It has become clear that John McCain believes the esteem of his Beltway insider friends is more important than the values of the voters who put him into office, and prizes political power over principle. Well, here is what I believe:

ü  I believe the people’s business should be done in the open, NOT behind closed doors and in the dead of night.

ü  I believe we must STOP mortgaging our country’s future by spending money we don’t have.

ü  I believe every penny of taxpayer money that goes to fund Planned Parenthood is a national disgrace!

Together, we can send a message that we’ve had ENOUGH of the politics-as-usual culture of backroom deals and compromised principles in Washington.  Website: https://kelliward.com/
