Merry Christmas, Have A Wonderful Weekend
‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the White House
Not a creature was working, not even his spouse;
No stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
because Michelle and the kids were in Hawaii spending multi-millions there;

The Obama voters were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of free cell phones danced in their heads;
And mamma with her free healthcare, and unemployment benefits with no cap,
Had just settled down for a free winter's nap,

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the mail box I flew like a flash,
Tore open the mail and got my free cash.

The welfare check hadn’t got wet in the snow
Obama was still passing out free dough,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a sign I must not work, at all of next year,

With a Socialist driver, so conniving and quick,
I knew in a moment he was their Saint Nick.
More taxes for the working and spending pretty much insane,
and he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
"Now, Daschle! Now, Boxer! Now, Franken and Reid!
On, Pelosi! On Feinstein! On, Baucus and Biden!
over the debt ceiling! No spending fire wall!
Now tax away! Tax away! Tax away all!"

Briefs will not be posted Christmas Day.

Trent Franks Addresses President Obama:  Protect Christians From Geneocide   Franks released a video address to President Obama in response to reports that his administration may exclude Christians and other religious minorities from a designation of genocide victims at the hands of ISIL. This is shameful negligence.

Jose Borrajero-- AZRRT Update:  There has been a drastic change in the way we are able to communicate with our legislators that you need to know about as we approach the new session, scheduled to open Monday, January 11. Here is a summary of the three major ways we currently express our opinions to our state elected officials:
1.    Emails: Here is where the huge change is taking place. The legislature members’ roster no longer lists Emails for members. Instead there is a link to a form similar to that used by our federal legislators. The bottom line is that a very valuable tool is being removed from our inventory. For full details concerning this change, CLICK HERE
2.    Phone Calls: There does not appear to be a change in the way phone calls are handled. However, if citizens shift from Emails to phone calls, there is a good chance that access will be negatively affected by the sheer number of calls.  
3.    Using the ALIS/RTS: The AZ Legislative Information System / Request To Speak program was substantially revamped in 2014 and we do not anticipate any changes here. Now more than ever it is extremely important that every recipient of this communication make every effort to register for the Request To Speak program and to use to its fullest extent. For a full explanation of this valuable tool and how to use it, Click Here   
As the 2016 legislative session gets underway, we will make every effort to keep you informed and to help you communicate with our legislators. In the meantime… Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Contact:

Realigning-For-Better-Wildlife-Management   The Arizona Game and Fish Commission recently approved a fundamental restructuring of the department that more accurately reflects the department’s overall mission to conserve and protect all wildlife, not just those that are hunted or harvested. The new comprehensive wildlife management structure consolidates our Game, Nongame and Fisheries branches into two new branches, Terrestrial Wildlife Branch and Aquatic Wildlife Branch, emphasizing the science-based management of the more than 800 species of wildlife in Arizona. With more wildlife biological talent than any other organization in the state, our two new wildlife branches will be a new model of scientific effectiveness and wildlife management success. – Commissioner Kurt Davis

Americans Favor Getting the Feds Out of the Classroom  Congress and the president last week scrapped the national education dictates of George W. Bush's No Child Left Behind law and returned control of school standards to states and localities. This is expected to lessen the focus on standardized testing. Americans, especially those with school-age children, approve. Read More

2015 Is Nearly Behind Us, and for Congresswoman Martha McSally, it’s been a year full of getting things done, according to her spokesman Patrick Ptak.  She sat down with local TV yesterday to talk about just some of the highlights, including keeping the A-10 and EC-130H flying, getting a bill signed into law to fast-track veterans for border jobs, bolstering border security, and leading Congressional efforts to address security vulnerabilities and combat ISIS. See portions of her interviews below.
·         KGUN: “A retired Air Force Colonel and an A-10 pilot, McSally has become a prominent voice on how to fight the threat of ISIS, but she covered a lot of other key issues in this latest session of Congress…”
·         KOLD: “As for measures to bolster border security, a bill on tap would make it easier to prosecute people who smuggle their product into our state…”
·         KVOA: “…McSally adds that she’s working with the House and Senate to address all threats and keep America safe.”

CNN Cuts Off Microphone As Guest Won't Stop Calling Hillary 'Enabler' Of Bill CNN's Don Lemon abruptly ended an interview with conservative columnist Kurt Schlichter after failing to solicit his comments on GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump cracking bathroom jokes about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Schlichter said he didn't understand why the press isn't focusing on the fact that the Democratic front-runner is an enabler of a "sexual harasser" and "abuser."    'Stop, Stop, Stop, That's Not Fair'
