Stop McCain Rampage “…With your upcoming Arizona Republican Primary fast approaching, there is no better time to make your voice heard, telling Sen. McCain and every other candidate: Hands Off The Second Amendment.”

clip_image001LD20 PC Wes Harris: Ask yourself:  "Is there Justice in America".  There used to be before the left took Lady Justice's blindfold off.  So today, there really is no justice, there is just political Kangaroo Courts, railroading County Attorneys, and Plea Bargaining County Attorneys.  We have lost justice and therefor the prospective of the Fifth Amendment.  There is much talk about the 1st, 2nd and 4th Amendments but little about the Fifth unless you are a corrupt IRS agent testifying before Congress.  There are other things in the Fifth Amendment besides the right to remain silent.  Think about it and think about this so called "Social Justice" movement which is not justice at all. PS:  The MSM is pure disgusting and should loose their 1st Amendment protection because they are not and have not been unbiased for over 50 years.

The Gilbert Chamber of Commerce became the sixth chamber across to the state to announce its opposition to Proposition 205, which would legalize recreational marijuana in the state of Arizona. "The Gilbert Chamber of Commerce opposes Proposition 205 for many reasons, but most importantly, because it negatively impacts Arizona’s businesses. By exposing our state's employers to costly legal challenges and putting employees in harm’s way by fostering unsafe work environments, Prop 205 is not in the best interest of our membership. We are eager to work with the Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy to defeat this initiative," said Kathy Tilque, President of the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce.  "We appreciate the support of the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce," said Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy Chairman Seth Leibsohn. "Legalized recreational marijuana would be disastrous for businesses in Arizona, and we are grateful to the Chamber for taking a stand against it."

An Old Scam Is Making Its Way around southern Arizona again. The scammers claim to be raising money for the men and women in blue. KOLD News 13 viewer said she received a call from a 928 area code, which shows up on the caller ID as Yuma, Arizona. The man on the other end, who asked for a $15 donation, claimed to be with the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police. She said it sounded legit at first, but when she started asking questions, the man got pushy. Then he said he was transferring the call to his assistant. She hung up and started alerting local law enforcement about the scam. Todd Griffith, president of FOP for Lodge one in Tucson, didn’t like hearing someone is using their name for fraud. Griffith said the Tucson FOP does not conduct phone solicitations, but other FOPs in Arizona do, so he suggests contacting the organization directly to verify it’s legit before giving money.

NYT-Story-On-Manaforts-Russia-Ties-Omits-Reporting-On-Clintons-Moscow-Speech The New York Times published an extensive report Monday examining Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s work for a pro-Russian party in Ukraine – but despite pointing to it as a “rising issue” in the presidential campaign, glossed over its own past reporting on the Clintons’ Russian connections. The latest article detailed ledgers purportedly showing more than $12 million earmarked for Manafort by the pro-Russian party. According to the Times, investigators claim they were part of an illicit off-the-books operation, though Manafort denies ever getting such payments. The Times noted that Manafort’s “involvement with moneyed interests in Russia and Ukraine” has been reported before – but said American relationships there have emerged as a “rising issue” in the presidential campaign.

US Senate candidate Clair Van Steenwyk: AZ US Senate Candidate Forum on PBS w/ McCain / Ward / Van Steenwyk - My two opponents and I were interviewed by PBS Reporter Lorraine Rivera and it played on PBS Stations across AZ. However, we discovered not all received the message in time to view it at I was the last interviewed. I’m fairly certain none of us knew what would be asked however once I viewed it on air I saw that for us couldn’t have been better.  I believe we did well and look forward to hearing from all of you as to your take on this and hope you’ll all share with your entire circle or relatives and friends to help them make the decision as to who to support remembering this will be for no less than six yrs. for myself or McCain ( Record vs. Rhetoric: ), but the next 24 yrs. for Ward ( Record vs. Rhetoric: ) and I for one don’t want any more Career Politicians in AZ or DC. We hope you enjoy this as much as we did making it and yes some of my comments were edited out as I tried to get the Word out about Voters going to Vote Now at the Early Voting Polls in many areas throughout AZ and hope you’ll do the same, we need these Voters now so we’ll have them in Nov. when we’ll need to bring Mr. Trump the Victory we all need, so for any reading this please get as many Registered Republican, Independents and No Particular Party Voters to Vote Now so we’ll have them in November. We’re asking for your help to defeat two Politicians with proven records of doing what they’re told to do by the GOP Establishment in DC and AZ, looking forward to your comments.
