Condolences To The Family Of Surprise Tea Party Leader Bernie Paluch, who passed away Wednesday. His services will be held in Chicago where his children and family reside.

The Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC) has extended the deadline to Aug 20 for submitting award nominations (via the legislative district (LD) chairmen) for the Sept 10 Lincoln Day Awards Dinner. All nominee recommendations must be submitted by Aug 20 to Frank Thorwald at frankthorwalk@hotmail.com Three new awards will be given related to recruitment and activity of new precinct committeemen (PCs). Nominees for the “Most Valuable PC Of The Year,” along with the annual Lifetime Lincoln Bust and Reagan Bust Service awards are also being sought. Each LD chairman is asked to submit one name. PCs can nominate any club for the “Outstanding Club for 2016” award. For more information contact Thorwald.

Roughly 45 enthusiastic “Believers For Trump” filled a dining room in Lydia’s La Canasta Restaurant In Wickenburg last night to hear a report from national delegate Barbara Wyllie on the “behind the scenes” happenings at the recent National Republican Convention in Cleveland. Attired in one of her convention outfits, Wyllie urged attendees to wear garments (shirts, hats, dresses, etc) promoting GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump “everywhere you go.” Wyllie was wearing one of the shirts she wore during the convention that reads:” Trump” followed by three lines reading “Supreme Court, Supreme Court, Supreme Court” as a reminder of how important it is for a Republican to appoint Supreme Court judges for the sake of our grandchildren. She also displayed a bright red dress that was decorated with a sparkly TRUMP across on the front. She and her partner Corky Haynes aka the “Grassroot Grandma’s” had international reporters lined up to interview the pair who dressed in matching outfits every day of the convention.

She said FOX News commentator Frank Luntz was in for a surprise when he spoke at an Arizona GOP breakfast making a statement assuming that long-time Sen. John McCain would be re-elected. Wyllie said a low rumble started across the room and the Arizona delegation broke into boos, leaving Luntz speechless. Other breakfast speakers were Gov Doug Ducey, Congressman Trent Franks and AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham.

As an alternate, she couldn’t be seated on the main floor where the official delegates were; she was seated in the balcony where she could observe everything going on the main floor level. She spoke of the enthusiasm of the Arizona delegation and refuted national media reports of chaos between Trump/Cruz factions during the opening session.

She highly praised the law enforcements officers who came from numerous states to safeguard convention attendees. Delegates traveled by private bus between their living quarters and the convention center, passing through three security gates to get into the center area. She also spoke highly of the hospitality of the Cleveland residents. Although the national media gave a lot of air time to the protestors outside the convention center, Wyllie never saw one.

Her dream come true experience includes a lot of parties, good food, comradery, fun, laughter, campaign buttons, trinkets, lot of media interviews and good memories. She reports an exhausted –but very happy Arizona delegation that voted unanimously on the first vote to make Donald Trump the RNC’s nominee for President – arrived back in Phoenix at 3 am. - ft

The “Life’s A Bitch – Don’t Vote For One” campaign button will probably become a top seller among Donald Trump fans now that the Dems have finalized their nomination of Hillary Clinton as their candidate for President.

It’s’ Been Noted that music for the final night of the Democrat convention is "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves".

LD20 2nd VC Wes Harris says, “I do not know about you but I have watched absolutely none of the Democrat Convention because I cannot tolerate their 'spin' on Hillary and everything else this sadly totally left leaning organization does.  I am sure, also, that the video Bill's Speech will not surprise you but I am equally sure that you know some people that have drunk the Hillary Koolaid and need to see the truth about her.  How anyone could believe either she or Bill Clinton...both notorious liars...is beyond me.  Please send this out as the more we circulate the truth, the better our chances in November.  Of course, in addition, we will all have to work hard to get the vote out for Trump and the other Republicans running.

The Yavapai Regional Medical Center’s Board of Trustees has announced its opposition to the legalization of recreational marijuana in Arizona. They are the first medical center to formally announce opposition to recreational marijuana and the Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act. “We, the Board of Trustees at Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC), appreciate and deeply value the importance of healthy communities. We advocate for the health of everyone living in the communities we represent,” the YRMC’s Board of Trustees said in a statement. “Improving and maintaining health is challenging and complex…We support a multitude of ongoing health programs designed to help our communities be healthier. We commit our resources to provide services, information and education to help maximize good health for all, from tiny newborns to frail centenarians. In that spirit, we have voted consistently with the position taken by the Board of Directors for the Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association (AzHHA) as outlined in their press release. The YRMC Board of Trustees also opposes the initiative regarding legalization of marijuana in Arizona for recreational use – the Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act.”

“I am so proud of our hospital coming forward to stand with us in support of defeating the Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act,” Sheila Polk, Yavapai County Attorney and Vice-Chair said. “And proves that the medical community is coalescing behind the effort to defeat this pernicious initiative. Recreational marijuana only means more hospitalizations, more accidental ingestions, and more harm for our communities. Arizonans deserve healthy and safe neighborhoods and the Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act provides just the opposite. I thank the board of the YRMC for their support and dedication to maximizing healthy lifestyles in Arizona.”

Ryan-Pushes-Gang-Eight-Style-Amnesty-CNN-Town-Hall While discussing the new GOP agenda at a CNN town hall yesterday, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) repeated his support for a Gang of Eight type amnesty of offering work permits to illegal aliens currently living in the U.S. “And then those people who need to get right with the law, give them a way to earn their way, through fines, through penalties, learn English, civics, reapply a policy of assimilation, so that they can get a work permit to work,” responded Ryan when asked about illegal immigration. At the same time, he acknowledged that current immigration visa numbers hurt American workers. “I think we should give visas based on what the economy needs, so that we’re make sure people aren’t taking jobs that Americans can take, Americans can fill,” he continued. This confirmation comes after the House, under Ryan’s leadership, passed last year’s omnibus bill that quadrupled the number H-2B visas and funded Pres. Obama’s DACA amnesty program and the president’s increase to the refugee resettlement program. Ryan’s immigration responses at Breitbart.com.

Yesterday the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a new video entitled “The Truth,” which calls attention to how a rigged system has gotten Hillary Clinton off the hook despite her sending classified information over her secret email server and repeatedly lying about it. Americans have had enough of how Clinton has for years played by her own set of rules, and this election is the time to put a stop to it. “For decades, Hillary Clinton has been embroiled in scandals caused by her own lies and unethical behavior, and Americans have had enough of it,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “From Whitewater to Benghazi to her secret email server, Hillary Clinton has proven over the course of decades that she doesn’t have the honesty or integrity to be entrusted with the nation’s highest office. It’s time to break from a Democrat establishment which has protected her for years and elect someone who will bring true change to Washington in Donald Trump.” See the accompanying brief from RNC Research here

it will be edited. Briefs does not post endorsements.

Sen Jeff Flake: The Democrats are wrapping up their convention in Philadelphia today -- and trust me when I say they're coming out of it as determined as ever to retain the White House and retake the majority in both houses of Congress. We've seen this before. In 2008 Democrats gained complete control in Washington, and look what that gave us. But if Hillary Clinton is at the helm, the threat posed to our freedoms, our safety and our economic security is much greater. We must fight back! And hitting our monthly fundraising target before our deadline will help us know whether Republicans are on track to win, or poised to lose.And right now, we're still short. my target
