State Leaders-Are-Giving-A-Big-Ol-Middle-Finger-To-Obamas-Gender-Neutral-Bathroom-Order The ink was barely dry on President Obama’s guidance regarding gender-neutral bathrooms – the administration told U.S. public schools on Friday to let transgender students use bathrooms and locker rooms according to gender identity – when opposing voices started shouting. And at least 7 of those voices in 6 states—so far—belonged to high-ranking state officials, beginning with North Carolina, where HB2 brought the controversy to the forefront… Also see 13-states-just-slammed-obama-epic-warning-school-bathroom-law and Obama Is Facing Some Fierce Backlash Against His Transgender Bathroom Order

Petition To Keep Men Out Of Women's Bathroom

The Arizona Project will meet at 6:30 pm., Mon., May 16 at 3375 E Shea Blvd, Phx, featuring a discussion on Rep Reginald Bolding’s objection to the Arizona-Civil Rights Conference originally scheduled in the House section of the State Capitol. Contact Chairman Ron Ludder at 602-677-1496.

Change of venue: The Arizona - Civil Rights Conference will host homeless activist Ted Hayes at 9 am., Sat., May 21 at a yet to be announced new location – following an uproar about its original scheduling on the second floor at the Arizona House of Representatives in Phoenix. Arizona Project Chairman Ron Ludders said last night that it will probably be sometime Monday before a new location will be announced. Ludders can be reached at at 602-677-1496.

Tom Morrissey, Immediate Past Chairman AZ GOP: I do not recall a "Loyalty Pledge" being requested during my term as chairman, for our candidate Mitt Romney.  In my opinion it wasn't necessary because Romney had won the Primary and that was the will of the Republican voters in our state. They voted for him to be our Party's nominee, throughout the entire nomination process at the Convention.  The supporters of Ron Paul in 2012 were not afforded the opportunities the supporters of Ted Cruz and John Kasich were afforded during this year's State Convention. I am still scratching my head over the fact that there are Ted Cruz and John Kasich delegates to this Convention when Donald Trump, overwhelmingly won this year's Primary Election.  The Republican voters of this state picked Donald Trump as our nominee.  So why do we not have all of the delegates assigned to Donald Trump... For the entire Nomination Process? Why is it necessary for the State Party to have to demand a "Loyalty Pledge"?  I understand that this is for the first round of voting in Cleveland but that makes no sense when the fact is that an overwhelming number of Arizona Republicans voted for the nomination of Donald Trump for president and not just for the first round of votes. The fact is that Trump won the Primary and facts used to be stubborn things.  At least they were before this years' Arizona Republican State Convention.  

Former State Senator Jack Harper: The Title IX Amendment from 1972 clearly says "sex" not gender identity.  The media, Obama, and the DOJ think we are just Sheeple and will not read it for ourselves: https://www.dol.gov/oasam/regs/statutes/titleix.htm Obama's threat against school funding is not enforceable.

LD13 PC Scott Powelson: When it was about the Clintons it was called Arkancide, I guess someone else is using the methods they used. Those involved in perversions like those in this case and involving molesting and killing children have led to the deaths of many who point fingers at powerful people in any political party. The elite have invested heavily in control of corrupt and blackmailable elected officials they don't like them outted until or unless they are the ones doing it. journalist-who-exposed-marco-rubios-sodomite-ties-ted-cruzs-fathers-ties-to-lee-harvey-oswald-found-dead

LD20 Second Vice Chair Wes Harris: Has The Western World Completely Lost It's Mind?  How long ago was 9/11?  How long ago were the bombings of the London Tube?  The West is being duped by Political Correctness which is never considered by Muslims when proclaiming their hatred of Christians and Jews. The Godless left is welcoming and cooperating for ours and their own destruction all under the cover of "Political Correctness".  It is time to gird our loins and stop this madness here because I honestly believe that it is too late for Europe.  The U.S. falls and then all that is left is Armageddon.

Condolences To Extended Family And Friends Of LD24 PC Tristan Manos on the passing of his uncle (Dad's cousin), Peter Liacouras, former President of Temple University, in Philadelphia. "Thanks for the memories and inspiration. You will be missed." via Temple University memorial: http://bit.ly/1qjWYHJ "Temple University's seventh President Peter J. Liacouras, the transformational leader whose vision and pride in Temple University spearheaded Temple’s evolution from a local commuter school to an internationally renowned public research institution, passed away Thursday, May 12. He was 85 and died after a long illness. Liacouras attended public schools, then studied at Drexel University, the College of William and Mary, the University of Pennsylvania Law School, the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Harvard Law School and Yale Law School, where he was a Sterling Fellow. He served as an American specialist for the Department of State in India, a public defender, and special assistant district attorney in Philadelphia. The first Temple president who was a native Philadelphian, Liacouras was the son of Greek immigrant parents. Later in his life, he was elected as a member of the Academy of Athens, the successor to Plato’s academy and the highest honorary scientific association in Greece."

Activist Anita Christy: Donald Trump: One-Man-Wrecking Ball Suited for our Times -- I didn't vote for Trump.  But I agree with former Senate President Russell Pearce, Treasurer Jeff DeWit, conservative activist Sandi Bartlett, and a host of others that we must rally behind Trump as our next President.  His detractors say he's flip-flopped on issues.  He isn't a "true" conservative.  He's uncouth, narcissistic, and unrefined.  All of that may be true.  They say he's racist.  He's sexist.  I don't believe that.  But why is he so popular with the American people?  This article addresses that question, and explores another one: Is it possible, as asked by Australian Pastor Steve Cioccolanti , that the Hand of God is on Donald Trump, "for such a time as this"? If so, it won't be the first time that God has used the most unlikely of men for His Purpose.

Consultant Chatter: Sean Noble IC Arizona will be running a series of posts entitled "Consultant Chatter," bringing you the history of some of the most prominent political operatives in Arizona.

LD20 PC Wes Harris: Just as in the fall of the Roman Empire, our Government is constantly doing things to take our eyes off of what they are really doing 'behind the curtain'.  This Trans Gender thing...estimated at approximately .01% of the population... is just such a move.  Never mind that it makes no sense right along with the LGBT movement and Black Lives Matter.  All are steps to destroy our Christian Judeo Culture and allow the subversive Muslim takeover.
I’ve just added my name to the national petition calling for elected official to protect our wives, mothers and daughters from sexual predators and perverts. Why? Because we’re currently losing the debate about whether men and boys should be kept out of women's and girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms and fitting rooms!
Businesses and Hollywood elites are successfully boycotting an entire state, and anyone who speaks out in favor of separate male and female facilities is ridiculed, marginalized or even fired (just ask former ESPN baseball analyst, Curt Schilling).
Grassfire launched the national "PROTECT OUR WIVES, MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS" petition to rally 100,000 citizens to fight back and protect women and girls from the radical onslaught of politically correct liberals and progressives. The petition simply states: "As a concerned citizen, I am calling on elected officials to PROTECT OUR WIVES, MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS from sexual predators. Keep men and boys out of women's and girls' bathrooms, locker rooms and fitting rooms!" To sign petition go to

Arizona Citizens Defense League Update – The Good News: The 2016 Legislative session is officially over.  The status and summary of bills that AzCDL monitored this session can be found on our Bill Tracking page. In addition to stopping almost a dozen bad firearms related bills from progressing through the Legislature, AzCDL was instrumental in getting the following bills through both chambers of the Legislature and to the Governor’s desk where they were signed into law.

· HB 2224, the AzCDL-requested bill that prohibits state or local governments from requiring any fee, tax, etc. on the private transfer of firearms.

· HB 2338, the AzCDL-requested bill that prohibits the governing boards of educational institutions from banning firearms on public rights of way, such as city streets and sidewalks that happen to pass through campuses.

· SB 1266 puts teeth into the preemption statutes by allowing for civil actions when state agencies, counties, cities, etc. disregard the law.

· SB 1487 requires the Arizona Attorney General to investigate local ordinances that violate Arizona’s Constitution or state law. AzCDL

Arizona Citizens Defense League update: The Bad News: For several years we have been pushing legislation to end Arizona’s official policy of allowing armed criminals to enter government buildings through the use of impotent “no weapons” signs as their only means of security.  As long as the bad guys can come and go at will in public facilities, we believe all law-abiding citizens should be able to protect themselves.  This year’s bill was SB 1257 which said in essence that if state and local governments’ only means of security was a cardboard sign, then CCW permit holders should not be disarmed when entering.  At the request of the Governor’s staff, SB 1257 was amended in the House.  However, seeing that the bill only needed one more floor vote to pass out of the Legislature, his staff then lobbied the Senate to kill the bill.  We learned our lesson – cooperating with this Governor is not necessarily a good thing.

We were able to get this year’s version of our interstate firearms compact bill, HB 2524, through both chambers of the Legislature but it was vetoed by Governor Ducey.  You may recall that last year, after Bloomberg’s lobbyists appeared at the Capitol, the compact bill was buried in the Senate Rules Committee while the clock ran out on the session. HB 2524 would have established an interstate compact between Arizona and other states that prevented the member states from enacting firearms transfer requirements more restrictive than existing federal law.  Enactment of HB 2524 would have neutralized Bloomberg’s ballot measure to criminalize private firearms transfers, which he has promised to file in Arizona. AzCDL

Arizona Citizens Defense League: Stopping Bloomberg In 2014, after passing a “universal background check” ballot measure in Washington, Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety organization bragged that Nevada, Maine and Arizona were next.  In Nevada and Maine the groundwork is completed.  They will have “universal background check” measures on their November ballots.  Bloomberg has less than 2 months to accomplish the same thing here in Arizona.  We must operate on the assumption that it will happen and be prepared to not just fight it, but to stop it from becoming the law in Arizona. With the veto of HB 2524, legislative remedies are no longer available.  We can only stop him at the ballot box.  If Bloomberg’s ballot measure passes, Arizona’s Constitution prevents it from being overturned by a subsequent Legislature. From what we’ve seen happen in Washington, Nevada and Maine, we cannot count on outside help.  The reality is that we must fight this battle ourselves.  AzCDL is self-funded and operates from the generosity of our members.  To maintain our independence we are unaffiliated.  We don’t receive corporate grants or have a rich sugar daddy hiding in the shadows.  Your donations determine if we succeed or fail.  In order to win this, we are going to need your support to help us spread the word.  When the next fund raising letter hits your inbox, please remember that we can only defeat Bloomberg with your help. AzCDL

Arizona Republican Party Executive Assistant Laura Minter has announced that a Delegates meeting is scheduled between 7-8 pm., Wed., May 18 at AZGOP headquarters, 3501 N 24th St., in Phoenix to elect the Chairman for the Arizona Delegation. To participate via conference call contact Minter at 602-957-7770 . Alternates are welcome to attend but not required, because only Delegates will have voting privileges. She reminds delegates to send in their pledge cards, the $1K fee and hotel information. She will make hotel reservations next week. Hotel reservations deadline is May 25. Delegates will receive confirmation as soon as she receives them. If unable to attend the May 18 meeting, delegates are asked to participate via conference call by contacting Minter at 602-957-7770 Alternates are welcome to attend but not required, because only Delegates will have voting privileges. Few more quick items:

1.  The pledge reinforces the Arizona Statute which binds the Delegate to the first round only.  This is a customary procedure which was also done in 2008 and 2012.

2.  The $1K fee covers all the Arizona Delegation events such as breakfasts, brunches, post session parties, other activities, transportation to events, etc.  I hope to send out an event schedule sometime soon.

3.  The RNC was able to secure some flight discounts with Delta and United for those of you who have not booked your flights.

the Virtue Wall: Vietnam Wall: The link is a virtual wall of all those lost during the Vietnam war with the names, bio's and other information of our lost heroes. Those who remember that time frame, or perhaps lost friends or family can look them up on this site.First click on a state. When it opens, scroll down to the city and the names will appear. Then click on their names.  It should show you a picture of the person, or at least their bio and medals. This really is an amazing web site. Someone spent a lot of time and effort to create it.

Why-Larry Klayman Continues-To-Fight-The-Establishment: “The former prime minister of Israel, Ehud Olmert, has been imprisoned for corruption, and the current president of Brazil, Dilma Rouseff, has been impeached and forced to step down while she is being tried for simply not disclosing financial spending by her administration. We in the United States have never truly held a president accountable under the rule of law. In 240 years since we became a free nation, not once has our chief executive officer been legally removed from office. It has become more than a bad joke that the United States has the most honest legal and government system. Sure, we are better than most, but the actions of Israel and Brazil, to name just two, stand as a testament to our self-delusional sense of false superiority.” Continue Reading.....

Say No To Leftist Ballot Measures In Arizona: Leftists and union bosses from California are currently collecting signatures for three bad propositions they want to put on Arizona’s November ballot:

—An anti-free speech measure that would put your name and personal information onto a publicly-available government database if you donate to non-profit organizations. It would also give state bureaucrats the power to audit and investigate conservative organizations for the “crime” of supporting the causes and issues we believe in.

—A measure to increase the minimum wage to a job-killing $12 per hour and keep young people and low-skilled workers from climbing onto the bottom rungs of the career ladder, with a special exception for the union bosses.

—A measure to cap the pay of hospital CEOs, which is part of an effort to try to unionize hospital employees (so the same union system that ruined Detroit’s economy would now run our hospitals).
