Activist Art Olivas: It is very evident to me that Mr. Charles Munoz is lacking the education that he can get for free by reading the Briefs! Our suggestion to Mr. Charles Munoz is to research Robert Graham, his associates and assistants! Charles Munoz states that “Robert Graham is completely accessible, and transparent, and I commend him for properly and objectively managing the State Party and conducting the State Convention. Graham has worked very hard to ensure every step of the process is conducted fairly.” NOT!!! My question to Charles Munoz is, how many of our county or state meetings has he attended? What factual knowledge has he of Robert Graham? By his actions in our meetings, he is supporting John McCain and the Republican Establishment that is trying to stop Trump. YES the same people that have been running our country to the ground, And Donald Trump is trying to stop!! Charles Munoz you stated, “For the record to be perfectly clear, the Trump Campaign has not suggested, nor do we support, any Arizona Trump supporter to participate in the online petition started by Mr. La Faro.” Well Charles Munoz for the record, “We” as Trump supporters, research! WE and I repeat “WE” don't follow suggestions or recommendations or ask for support from anyone! La Faro, better then you, knows how grassroots Republican conservatives here in Arizona are ignored and abused by John McCain, Bruce Ash, Robert Graham and their cohorts. My suggestion to you is keep your 2 cents to yourself! Research Arizona's political history before you try to run it! Again read the Briefs!! -- Latino Legal Immigrant Tea Party Facilitater. Sick and tired!! Arthur Olivas Jr. Olivas is referring to AZ/NV Trump Campaign Manager Charles Munoz’s commentary in yesterday’s Briefs. See http://archives.mcrcbriefs.org/2016/04/4-24-16-briefs.html
As of last night (April 24), nearly 500 signatures and over 300 comments were posted to the Demand-AZGOP-Chair-Robert-Graham-Resignation petition site regarding the chairman. Although Trump State Director Arizona & Nevada Charles Munoz would like to distance the Trump campaign from the petition, self-proclaimed Donald Trump supporters pulled no punches regarding Establishment/McCain/Graham shenanigans. -ft
McCain’s-Navy Records Revisited: “The Navy released John McCain’s military record after a Freedom of Information Act request from the Associated Press. The record is packed with information on McCain’s medals and commendations but little else. The one thing that the McCain campaign does not want to see released is the record of McCain’s antics on board the USS Forestal in 1967. McCain was personally responsible for the deadliest fire in the history of the US Navy. That catastrophe, with 27 dead and over 100 wounded trumps McCain’s record as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam. WMR has learned additional details regarding the deadly fire aboard the Navy aircraft carrier, the USS Forrestal, on July 19, 1967 in the Gulf of Tonkin. The additional details point to then-Lt. Commander John McCain playing more of a role in triggering the fire and explosions than previously reported”…

Author and Firearms Expert Alan Korwin: In a recent Political Insider in The Arizona Republic, they wrote that members of the legislature were "packing heat." It's a term, like "toting," "strapped," and others that appears with some frequency in the paper, and other publications around the nation. It may seem cutesy or an elegant turn of phrase, but it is not an honest or admirable way to write. It is a slang derogatory slur, it demeans the journalism profession, shows a dishonorable distaste for the subject, is offensive and insults a fundamental human right, exemplifying the bias the public is constantly reminding journalists about, which journalists seem immune to hearing. It's like reading blatant racist writing of the 1950s, done without any glimmer of awareness of the stereotypical demeaning imbedded in the verbiage. Improve the craft and the standing of the profession by avoiding such tacky abuse of the language and our heritage. Without demonstrating vile personal revulsion, a writer would simply say a legislator is armed, or discreetly armed. It's one thing when gun enthusiasts use language speaking with each other, much like blacks using "terms of endearment" within the community, and another when reporters who display no empathy hurl epithets. Then, it's simply a disgrace.
Congressman Paul A. Gosar, after holding a “Government Land Grabs: Exposing The Truth” Public Listening Session in Kingman to hear testimony from more than 20 Arizona witnesses on the need to reform the Antiquities Act and the negative impacts that would result should President Obama appease special-interest groups by unilaterally locking up 1.7 million acres in the Grand Canyon Watershed through the creation of a new national monument under presidential proclamation: “Today, we heard resounding testimony from small business owners, sportsmen, farmers, ranchers, elected officials and many other stakeholders who adamantly oppose another massive land grab from the Obama Administration. Our witnesses made clear that countless Arizonans reject using the Antiquities Act to create a new 1.7 million acre national monument in a watershed,” said Gosar. “Substantive testimony confirmed that this misguided special-interest proposal will kill jobs, prevent mining, retire grazing permits, close roads to OHV users, reduce access for sportsmen, steal water rights and harm 4FRI. I call on the White House to listen to the people of Arizona and reject this misguided land grab put forth by environmental extremists with an agenda.”
Arizona Game and Fish Commission Chairman Kurt R. Davis testified: “Arizona has had enough public land that have seen declining access; declining ability to manage wildlife and declining ability to maintain the heritage and history of those who came to Arizona to build families and lives in rural Arizona. Arizonans have witnessed massive and cataclysmic wild fires across our federal lands over the past two decades because of a lack of proactive habitat management. This unfortunately, will be the destiny of the North Kiabab if a monument is established. Simply and sadly stated, the President is being asked to use the stroke of a pen, but it will also certainly serve as the strike of the match.”
Congressman Trent Franks submitted testimony stating, “The ability of the Arizonans to enjoy the responsible use of their public land must be respected, as must the primacy of state agencies to manage the land under their authority. A unilateral designation of the Grand Canyon Watershed as a National Monument would erode the extensive work that federal and state land agencies have done to successfully manage this land.”
Jim Parks, President of the Coconino County Farm Bureau and Cattle Growers Association (on behalf of the Arizona Farm Bureau), testified, “Within the bounds of the proposed Grand Canyon Watershed National Monument are over 64,000 acres of Arizona State Trust lands and almost 28,000 acres of private land. This alone violates federal and state laws, as it amounts to a ‘taking’ of these state and private lands.”
Eric Duthie, Town Manager of the Town of Tusayan, testified, “Tusayan would become the only municipality entirely swallowed up in this monument…Tusayan strongly opposes the establishment of the Grand Canyon Watershed Monument, whether through Congressional decree or Executive Order. Tusayan believes such action would constitute federal overreach in order to appease special-interest groups who do not live among, nor represent the views of the many life-long residents who cherish and manage the Grand Canyon.”
Kelly Shaw-Norton, President of the Arizona Mining Association, testified, “The Antiquities Act was intended as a tool to set aside ‘the smallest area compatible with the proper care and management of the objects to be protected.’ It was not meant to be used for expansive amounts of land without public input and Congressional approval.”
AZ state officials opposing the monument designation: Governor Doug Ducey, Attorney General Mark Brnovich, Former U.S. Senator Jon Kyl, Arizona State Land Commissioner Lisa Atkins, Speaker of the House David Gowan, Senate President Andy Biggs, State Sens Gail Griffin, Sylvia Allen, and Steve Pierce, Apache County Supervisor Barry Weller, Pinal County Supervisors Cheryl Chase, Stephen Miller and Anthony Smith, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors, La Paz County Supervisor King Clapperton, the five-member Arizona Game and Fish Commission and 10 former commissioners. In addition, Resolutions opposing the monument passed in the Arizona State House and State Senate.

Scottsdale Veteran Josh Wolosonovich is asking for help in a “Operation Nine Line: New Trails” fundraiser for a five day, 75 mile hike in the Colorado Mountains in June for veterans between June 27- July in which 75 people from around the country will participate in the backpacking journeys that will test all participants mentally, spiritually, and physically. Their purpose is to raise awareness of all the various physical, mental and emotional needs of the nation’s veterans and help make an impact on the toll these injuries (including the hidden ones) have on them and their families. “Nine Line” is a combat emergency medevac request, and is often the difference between life and death for the most severely wounded soldiers. See WWW.NINELINEFOUNDATION.ORG or NineLineOperationNewTrails2016-josh-wolosonovich Wolodonovich has lived in Chandler, Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa, and now Scottsdale since 2007.

Gov Doug Ducey: I'm was in the Prop 123 office yesterday meeting volunteers. They're doing great work talking to voters about Prop 123 and why it's so important to vote YES on May 17. But we need your help, too. This election is far from a slam dunk, and we need to ensure that on May 17 we get teachers and students the resources they need to succeed in the classroom. If Prop 123 passes, we'll get $3.5 billion into K-12 public schools over the next 10 years without raising taxes. It's a win for teachers, it's a win for students, it's a win for parents and it's a win for Arizona. But we need your help to get the win. Please, sign up for at least one volunteer shift so we can get this money to the people that need it most, our teachers and students. I am stopping by the campaign office every week and would love to see you there.

LD 24 PC Tristan Manos On Birthday Of Emer de Vattel (April 25, 1714): Part 1 (today) of 2 (tomorrow): "Today's a good opportunity to reflect upon one of the all-time great political philosophers and jurists (expert in or writer on law), Emer de Vattel, author of "Law of Nations," a world-class citizen/government/nation resource and guide that served the Founders and Framers, that should serve us -- "We The People" -- today, that we may "Keep The Republic," for our generation and future generations." Vattel, born in Switzerland, wrote "Law of Nations" at 44, seen as "unrivaled among treatises in its influence on American Founders" ("Law of Nations as Constitutional Law"). Benjamin Franklin's letter to Charles Dumas, on Vattel's "Law of Nations": Franklin chaired Committee of Correspondence (secret governments organized by Patriot leaders of 13 Colonies on eve of American Revolution). Dumas served as secret agent to aid American interests in Europe. In 1775, Dumas devised 1st diplomatic cipher used by Continental Congress and Franklin for secret correspondence with agents in Europe.
Franklin to Dumas (12/9/1775) (authorized by John Dickinson and John Jay):"I am much obliged by the kind present you made us of your edition of Vattel. It came to us in good season, when the circumstances of a rising state make it necessary frequently to consult the law of nations. Accordingly that copy, which I kept, after depositing one in our own public library here, and sending the other to Massachusetts, as you directed, has been continually in the hands of the members of our Congress, now sitting, who are much pleased with your notes and preface, and have entertained a high and just esteem for their author."
