More And More Negative Attention is being drawn to the misleading ads that have been running against US senate candidate Kelli Ward for several weeks. Wards campaign camp says the ads are untrue that claim she failed to support the US military with the funding needed to pay the troops and that she sponsored a bill to prevent law enforcement in Arizona from cooperating with the feds to prevent terrorism. For starters, she was an Arizona Legislative Senator and had no vote on congressional troop pay decisions. See McCain-Assisting-Pac-Misleads-Voters-About-Conservative-Opponent-Kelli-Ward

LD14 PC Bruce M Piepho: Dump Trump? Stop Trump? These People Are Crazy!! Kendal Unruh a teacher at the Denver metro area Christian school, Jim Elliot Christian School is advocating breaking various state laws so she can support Ted Cruz? What she and many other others have failed to understand is the importance of "natural law" and how that impacts president candidate requirements. The Hill thinks there are several factions seeking to stop Trump. There only 2 -- the self-indulgent establishment and Ted Cruz supporters. I would love to see the courageous conservatives provide a blow by blow of Trump's goals and their so called values and principles. Are these 3 sources of malcontent and GOP destructive agents afraid of closing the borders, controlling immigration, neutralizing the Islam invasion and jobs? I do not own a gun but maybe Bruce Ash can provide me with one. These people are bedeviled into a sanctimonious, self-defeating, on a blinded path way to destroy the Republican party! They are crazy. P.S. I respect Bruce Ash and am thankful he represents me at the RNC.
Tom Morrissey, Immediate Past Chairman AZ GOP: President Barack Hussein Obama, who claims to be Christian, has been quoted as saying, "The (Islamic) evening call to prayer, is the sweetest sound that (he) has ever heard". Well, this may surprise some of you, but I have to disagree with our president. Today, while working with my wife, Kris, at our church, I was fortunate enough to hear the "sweetest sound" I have ever heard... That of a young children's choir, practicing for an upcoming singing of praise. To me, it actually sounded like, what I believe the voices of angels, or those newly arrived from Heaven, might sound like. It was, unbelievably moving to this old rock musician and I feel blessed to have heard it. Helped me to once again remember who we really are as people and as a culture, despite what we are being told we are these days, by folks who don't have a clue.
Town Crier Jim Ely: Here you have it! As Ben Franklin said, we have a ‘Republic’ if you can keep it. And we are showing more and more that we can’t keep it. Perks and power prevail! A Republic is where WE THE PEOPLE elect others to represent them in government. The elected should not to go into government to solely promote their own views, but to represent the views of those who elected them to do so. And, if/when the elected personal views conflict with those who did the electing, the will of WE THE PEOPLE should prevail. And one of the reasons what political parties came into being was to act as a go between the voters and the elected and hold the elected accountable. To be an effective political party, the party Chairs, at all levels, must show leadership! And, obviously this isn’t being done in Arizona. Thanks to the MCRC Briefs we have a list of those who refuse to follow the will of WE THE PEOPLE! What is sad is that some of them are already in office! Will they represent WE THE PEOPLE in their office?? Will the party leadership grow up and show some leadership? Does anyone see any group, or organization such as any TEA party or AzRA trying to do anything about it? To the case in point, for the office holders, they are suspect as to representing WE THE PEOPLE. For those who were not already elected officials, we can appreciate their honesty in admitting that they can’t represent WE THE PEOPLE and should not have entered the delegate race nor should they ever run for office.

RNC Using 'Hard-Nosed Tactics' To Stop Revolt Against Trump The Republican National Committee and campaign of Donald Trump are reportedly getting "hard-nosed" in their efforts to head off an anti-Trump revolt at the party's convention next month. According to the New York Times, the RNC is packing key positions with "loyal party stalwarts" to make sure rogue delegates don't try to disrupt the Cleveland event…
McClintock-Stands-For-Gun-Rights The Democrats Are FUMING - In light of the recent anti-civil rights “sit-in” staged on the floor of the House of Representatives by whiny Democrats upset over the defeat of their unconstitutional gun control proposals, it is only right that we counter their publicity stunt with an epic speech in favor of gun rights for American citizens. That epic speech was delivered by Republican California Rep. Tom McClintock, who took to the House floor the proper way last week after the terrorist attack in Orlando to make his plea…

Congressman Paul Gosar: I have been fighting Obama's executive amnesty orders since they were first introduced and this past week was a monumental step in our quest to block the president’s unlawful overreach on immigration. The Supreme Court affirmed the Court of Appeals decision, leaving in place Judge Andrew Hanen’s injunction that will prevent President Obama’s unconstitutional November 2014 executive amnesty orders from taking effect during the remainder of his presidency. Judge Hanen’s injunction stems from a lawsuit led by Texas Governor Greg Abbott and 25 other states, including Arizona, which argues President Obama did not have legal authority when he bypassed Congress and took executive action in November of 2014 to expand the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and create the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program. This Supreme Court decision is a win for our Constitution and the American people. Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 of the Constitution grants Congress clear jurisdiction with regard to U.S. citizenship and immigration matters…not the president. While this fight is not over, Thursday's decision sends a strong message that the Rule of Law is alive in America and that President Obama cannot circumvent Congress in order to implement his lawless amnesty agenda. Furthermore, the 4-4 split by the Supreme Court underscores the critical importance of electing a president that will appoint a Supreme Court justice that upholds the Constitution and preserves our nation’s system of separated powers. That justice will likely determine the final outcome in this case. Click HERE to read more.

US Senate candidate Kelli Ward Q&A From The Verde Independent:
1. Question: What are the three biggest differences between you and your opponents? Ward: I am the only Republican who can win in November because people want a citizen servant in the Senate, not another career politician. I'll serve only two terms. I'll be a conservative champion for Arizona's future. Ronald Reagan said Republicans win by raising up 'a banner, not of pale pastels, but of bright, bold colors.' I'm the only candidate with a 100% pro-life, pro-gun, pro-Constitution voting record. As a military wife, mother of three, and family physician I will be a different kind of Senator. My medical background gives me unique expertise and credibility that professional politicians cannot match on the most important issues we face such as fighting for a Human Life Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to overturn Roe v. Wade, repealing Obamacare and fighting for patient-empowering, free-market medicine, and finally fixing the VA health system.
2. Question: Are there issues that have not been represented in Washington, and if so, how would you deal with them?Ward: Not only does illegal immigration cost Arizona $2.6 billion a year for education, healthcare, and jails, it also makes Arizona families increasingly vulnerable to terrorist attacks. Just last November, FBI officials briefed the Phoenix Police Department on increasing terror threats facing the region. Phoenix is a "hotbed" of terrorist activity with "very active" communication and "lots of chatter on the airwaves" where ISIS is "recruiting high school age students." The most important battleground in the War on Terror is the Arizona border. I am the only candidate who will work with Senator Cruz to sponsor Donald Trump's Build the Wall Act. It's time to mix the mortar to fix the border and protect Arizona families.
3. Question: Will you support your party's nominee for president? Ward: I am fully supporting the Republican nominee, Donald Trump. If elected, my first bill will be his Build the Wall Act, which I will work with other conservatives like Senator Ted Cruz to pass. It's time to mix the mortar to fix the border.

Sal DiCiccio, Phoenix City Councilman #6: Why are you paying huge water bills and ever increasing taxes? Government waste.This week alone Phoenix politicians voted again to give away your money:
· $10 million contract given to a private company just to let people know about recycling
· $1.5 million payout to Union Bosses as part of a backroom deal hidden from the public
The politicians who voted for this government waste: Mayor Mark Stanton, council members Debra Stark #3, Kate Gallego #8, Daniel Valenzuela #5, Thelda Williams #1 and Laura Pastor #4.They have already started claiming to have a shortage of funds and will be voting on the 26% tax increase on July 1. Councilmen Jim Waring #2, Michael Nowakowski #7, and DeCiccio #6 voted against that government waste. As you can see by the way they blew through your hard earned tax dollars this week, they don’t really believe there is a shortage of money because there isn’t one. We have a record high surplus of cash. We have enough funds to pay our debt obligations and keep a reserve. This 26% tax is unnecessary and would punish you, the hard working taxpayer, by squeezing your family budget. This week the Mayor and Council also voted to spend $300,000 to fund a private downtown special interest group who previously pushed a huge tax increase on small business owners. Remember how you were lied to about the food tax? The politicians are doing it again with the property tax increase. Just like I helped repeal the food tax, I am just as committed to fighting this huge tax increase on you and your family. Your property tax payment doesn’t need to go up 26%. So what can you do? Help me help you by spreading the word about this tax grab by sending this information out to everyone you know. Post your objections to this unnecessary tax hike on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with this hashtag: #NoPropTaxPHX phoenix-approves-10-million-encourage-recycling
