Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day share their Christmas message: “Each Christmas brings a chance to rejoice at the humble birth of the Child who brings a new hope,” said Chairman Priebus. “Over two thousand years ago in Bethlehem a Savior was born whose message is love and peace. As we gather with friends and loved ones, I want to wish a very Merry Christmas to all those who are celebrating. We also remember those who are suffering at this time of the year. Whether lonely, hurting, or struggling to make ends meet, all human beings need comfort as they endure hardship. Let us continue to embrace the charity and good will toward men that our Lord calls us to, and love our neighbors in need.”
     “A very Merry Christmas to you and yours!” said Day. “Like the shepherds who came to Bethlehem, we praise God for the good news. And like the wise men who came from afar, we strive to humble ourselves in the presence of the Prince of Peace. I hope we keep the joy of Christmas in our hearts well into the New Year. We also ask that God bless the men and women of our military who are away from their families during this season. We’re thinking and praying for them and their loved ones, and we give thanks for their heroism and sacrifice.”

IF YOU SEE A FAT MAN ...
Who's jolly and cute,
Wearing a beard and
a red flannel suit,

And if he is chuckling
and laughing away,
While flying around
in a miniature sleigh,

With eight tiny reindeer
to pull him along,
Then let's face it...
Your eggnog's too strong! – author unknown


Dems-Push-Hr-569-Death-Knell-For-1st-Amendment Liberal lemmings leap at ending any and all discourse and education regarding the global threat posed by Islamic jihadists “…In the United States, a House of Representatives bill, H. Res. 569, has been sponsored that would censor one of the few countries left with freedom of speech. The bill, in accordance with the 10-year plan of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), would criminalize all criticism of Islam, worldwide. A group in the U.S. House of Representatives has sponsored H. Res. 569, in condemnation of violence, bigotry and “hateful rhetoric” toward Muslims in the U.S.  It has been referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary. This bill comes on the heels of Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s post-San Bernardino outrageous statement to the Muslim American community that she will prosecute anyone guilty of anti-Muslim speech. Passage of this legislation will be the death knell for the First Amendment and the end of any and all discourse and education about the threat posed by the global jihad…”

2015 Greatest Hits, No. 16: Sheriff Joe Deputizes Armed Americans For War On Terror: ‘I’m Concerned About What’s Going On’  Special to WorldTribune.com Sheriff Joe Arpaio is calling on Arizona’s 250,000 concealed weapons permit holders to fight terrorism in the homeland. On Dec. 1, one day before 14 died in a San Bernadino, California massacre involving 28-year-old Syed Farook, the […]

RNC Chairman Gears Up For 'Tough' Battle To Hold Onto Senate   Reince Priebus thinks Republicans will keep the chamber, but says it will be unpredictable.  rnc-chairman-tough-for-gop-to-hold-onto-senate

Illegal And Mother Of Seven... Helps Others Get Free Stuff  Illegal immigrant and mother of seven, Marita Nelson, receives $240 in food stamps, medications, $700 in Social Security and housing allowance. She entered the US by swimming the Rio Grande. Now she's on a crusade to help, other illegals sign up for their free stuff.

Activist Mark Lewis: As predicted, Obama vetoed the EPA Carbon tax called the Clean Power plan  obama-vetoes-measures-to-block-clean-power-plan  AZ power rates expected to increase 40% as part of the coal shutdown. All AZ republican congressmen deserve a thank you for voting against this plan. Now we need to protect the republicans on the corporation commission to prevent the implementation of the carbon tax.
GOP Presidential Primary Candidate Donald Trump has been confirmed as a speaker at the March 18-19, 2016 Western Conservative Conference scheduled in Scottsdale. The agenda includes former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., former NRA president Sandy Froman, and Scottie Nell Hughes of the Tea Party News Network. Arizona Congressmen Matt Salmon and Paul Gosar co-chair the event. Herman Cain, former presidential candidates will give the opening address. The Western Conservative Conference is described as the “premier gathering of conservatives in the western U.S.”  See  trump-heading-west-with-bulletproof-campaign   Strategy includes appearance with conservative playmakers in run-up to primary.
CD6 PC Boe James to Senators McCain and Flake and Congressman Schweikert: I wonder why the President of the United States has not ordered the Flag of the United States of America to be flown at half staff/half mast in honor of the 6 American Service members killed  and the 3 Americans wounded in the suicide bomb attack in Afghanistan.
In August 2012 after 6 Sikhs were killed in Oak Creek, WI, the President ordered the flags flown at half mast/staff for 5 days. So it seems only right to me that the US Flag should be flown at half staff for a the 6 Soldiers killed by the enemy (the Taliban) while serving their country overseas.  
If the flag can be lowered for 6 civilians, why not for 6 Service members? Is there anything you can do to influence the President to properly honor these service members?  Boe James is also a Navy retiree

A. J. LaFaro - National Director, Arizona Republican Assembly (AzRA): The $1.8 trillion "Christmas gift" the President, Senators and Representatives gave themselves, their special interest groups and crony friends this week demonstrate once again they are out of touch with the American people. Grassroots conservatives knew Paul Ryan was a RINO as bad, or worse, than John Boehner and Kevin McCarthy. This week's $1.8 trillion deal Ryan helped orchestrate clearly demonstrates Ryan needs to go and a real conservative needs to primary him in 2016.  The "How to Bag a RINO" team needs to add Ryan to their 2016 target list.‏  arizona-delegation-split-on-omnibus-vote-grijalva-nay-mcsally-yea  LaFaro is also the Immediate Past Chairman, Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC)

Sen John McCain will visit the Yuma County 4- Ambassadors at Dole Lettuce Field at 1 pm., Mon., Dec 28 and the Yuma 50 at 2:15 pm, at the Greater Yuma Economic Development Corporation, 899 East Plaza Circle #2, Yuma, Arizona 85365.

Two Arizona Gals Are Determined to make Sen John McCain’s sweat for his political life for the next few months. Dem Ann Kirkpatrick latest message reads: “Did you hear McCain’s latest quote?? McCain said, ‘I expect this to be the toughest campaign that I’ve ever had.’” GOP LD6 former Arizona Senator Kelli Ward is equally determined to send McCain to his rocking chair in Sedona with her ‘retire McCain’ campaign. Apparently the two ladies campaigns against him are hitting home, as McCain is appearing in places he has been seen in years… and his team is publicizing his every word and every Arizona appearance these days.  What a difference the 2014 censure by state committeemen and Maricopa County Republican precinct committeemen have made in his home state movements. The word is out that his team just might also behind the Maricopa County Resolution Committees rejection of the “Anyone But McCain” resolution submitted for inclusion on the Jan 16 mandatory meeting call letter to Maricopa County precinct committeemen… and the AZGOP’s Robert Grahams alleged failure to get its Resolution Committee rolling for the AZGOP Jan 23 mandatory meeting.  Hmmm interesting.  It appears the “Anyone But McCain” resolution folks intend to bring the resolution to the floor at both the county and state meetings anyway.

Korwin: Americas-Real-Gun-Problem-The-Gun-Myths   The effort to come up with sane gun policy is hindered by a flow of myths that arise and are abandoned, a function of left-wing fear and ignorance, which needs to stop. Media eagerly backs each myth as if it's real, then abandons it quickly when it's exposed as absurd, and dutifully moves on to the next one. Remember "waiting periods," the ultimate gun solution? One-gun-a-month? BITS -- "Blood In The Streets" if we allow CCW permits nationwide? It's a long list, here's Part I. – Alan Korwin, gun laws expert

Leading-The-Fight-Against-Excessive-Presidential-Power  Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) is one of a handful of young conservatives who are leading the fight to protect the Constitution. These young Congressmen, with names like Rand Paul (R-KY), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), Justin Amash (R-MI), Thomas Massie (R-KY), Ted Yoho (R-FL), Matt Salmon (R-AZ) are standing up to the entrenched establishment of both parties and demanding a return to our constitutional core values. In a recent speech before the Senate, Sasse began what will be a series of different arguments demanding that Congress fight back against the unlawful misuse of Executive Power being demonstrated by President Obama in recent years.
Barack Obama’s Belligerence Toward Critics in the face of overwhelming public opposition to his refugee resettlement program and his failed anti-ISIS strategy has even some Democrats scratching their heads. Especially in light of the recent spate of horrific terror attacks — including the suspected terrorist bombing of a Russian civilian airliner and the atrocities in Paris — many wonder how Obama can say what he says about the brutal and determined enemy the civilized world is clearly confronting. But a noted investigative journalist has shed some disturbing light on the degree to which the President is ignoring the threat the United States faces from Islamic radicals…white-house-sources: obama-flat-refusing 
Watch Your Language: Jihad isn't spree murder, the stats should be kept separately, and the cures are different. Jihad is warfare, the solution is political and military, spree murder is psychotic and the fix is medical and needs policing. Different legal action too, and militia involvement. watch-your-language.  jihad-isnt-spree-murder, what-was-san-bernardino?

The-Untold-Story-Of-How-The-Heroic-Irish-Won-The-American-Revolution    George Washington Park Custis, Washington’s adopted son and a careful student of history, placed the significant Irish contribution to the American revolution in a proper historical perspective. “When our friendless standard was first unfurled for resistance, who were strangers [foreigners] that first mustered ‘round its staff, when it reeled in the fight, who more bravely sustained it than Erin’s generous sons?  Who led the assault on Quebec [General Montgomery] and shed early luster on our arms, in the dawn of our revolution?  Who led the right wing of Liberty’s forlorn hope [General Sullivan] at the passage of the Delaware [just before the attack on Trenton]?  Who felt the privations of the camp, the fate of battle, or the horrors of the prison ship more keenly than the Irish?  Washington loved them, for they were the companions of his toil, his perils, his glories, in the deliverance of his country.”

Muslims-Attack-Texas-Mayor The group of Muslims who attempted to establish the first Islamic Sharia court inside the United States in the town of Irving, Texas just received a devastating blow thanks to the town’s mayor standing strong and not backing down. Mayor Beth Van Duyne made a public Facebook post stating that she backs the new Texas law which prohibits any kind of foreign law from being practiced in the state of Texas.

Foreign-Women-Assess-US-Gender-Equality The U.N. Sent 3 Foreign Women To The U.S. To Assess Gender Equality. They Were Horrified. The human rights experts concluded that the country falls far behind most others.

Syrian Refugees Are A Health Hazard To US By Bringing Flesh-Eating Leishmaniasis Disease   by Dr. Eowyn  Despite the fact that the FBI had admitted that they don’t have the database to vet Syrian “refugees” being brought to the U.S., on December 18, 2015, the traitorous Republican-majority Congress approved of the omnibus spending bill H.R. 2029 that fully funds the “refugee” program, as well as Planned Parenthood, climate.

Please comply with the 300 word limit policy

Congressman Matt Salmon:   As 2015 comes to a close, I wanted to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Each year at this time I reflect on the many things I am thankful for in my life. One of those is your friendship. I truly could not do this job without your tremendous support. As you celebrate the holiday season, please remember those in uniform serving our nation overseas who are unable to spend the holidays with their families and loved ones. I pray that 2016 will be a blessed year for you and your family, and for our great nation. Nancy and I wish you the most joyful, peaceful holiday season, and we look forward to seeing you in the new year.
