The Arizona Trump-Pence Campaign Of Arizona Leaders reacting to Donald Trump’s victory in tonight’s first Presidential Debate held at Hofstra University in New York: “Americans tuning in to tonight’s debate saw one candidate promising more of the same failed status quo in Hillary Clinton, and another with a vision for needed change in Donald Trump. Whether it’s standing up to terrorism, unleashing our natural resources to grow the economy, or making sure working women have childcare options, Donald Trump is squarely focused on what’s best for American families. Hillary Clinton is only out for herself, and her untruthful and pandering answers in tonight’s debate showed exactly why she cannot be trusted to be our next president.” – Governor Jan Brewer

“It isn’t surprising Donald Trump was the clear winner of tonight’s debate considering how Hillary Clinton continued her pattern of dishonesty and failed to fully explain her long history of unethical behavior. Whether it’s her secret email setup, which jeopardized national security or using her State Department connections for personal gain, Hillary Clinton has failed the presidential test over and over again. Donald Trump is ready to clean up Washington, restore power to the American people, and unite our country, and he is infinitely more qualified than Hillary Clinton to lead our nation as president.” – Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ)

Gina Ray: Here is a link to the kindergarten standards.  They are just as developmentally inappropriate as Common Core, including “algebraic thinking”, using “logic and reasoning to critique others answers”, and “reasoning” with multiple ways to come to the solutions of problems. The standards review committee did not listen to teachers and parents about getting a child psychologist to review and give input to insure that the new Arizona standards would be developmentally appropriate.  The committee also failed to listen to parents and teachers when they asked them to include the introduction of patterns (such as A, A, B, A, A, ___) –which is a traditional skill taught in kindergarten.  But, just like the Common Core standards –patterns are missing from the “new Arizona standards” too.  These “new” Arizona standards are basically a plagiarized copy of the Common Core standards and in some ways are actually even more confusing and convoluted (see pages 6 through 8 of the draft):  https://k12standards.az.gov/sites/default/files/media/Kindergarten%20Math%20Standards%20Draft%20Public%20August%202016.pdf Link to the “new Arizona standards” draft for all grades, both English and Math:  https://k12standards.az.gov/read-2016-arizona-draft-standards-0

Arizona Town Crier Jim Ely: “There is no Constitutional provision or Federal law that requires Electors to vote according to the results of the popular vote in their states. Some states, however, require Electors to cast their votes according to the popular vote. These pledges fall into two categories—Electors bound by state law and those bound by pledges to political parties  And still, the AZ GOP executive committee, the AzRA, the state committeemen, the 15 county chairs, the thousands of Arizona Precinct Committeemen do NOTHING.  What the heck, it’s your party, are you going to set back and let one man run the party in our state? There is no state law in Arizona that requires that the electors honor the state vote: “Legal Requirements or Pledges
Electors in these States are bound by State Law or by pledges to cast their vote for a specific candidate:ALABAMA – Party Pledge / State Law – § 17-19-2
ALASKA – Party Pledge / State Law – § 15.30.040; 15.30.070
CALIFORNIA – State Law – § 6906
COLORADO – State Law – § 1-4-304
CONNECTICUT –etc”

So you see, our loyal AZ GOP may be maneuvering to sway the electoral election!  That’s really unknown.  But, that’s most probably why this pledge is offered at the end of the web link provided”                                                                

Pledge:

”Since actions speak louder than words, we are asking for the following Presidential electors to sign this Pledge below. Each elector will be receiving this individually and immediately. We will be reporting on the ones who send it back to us personally signed.

I __(name)_________________pledge, as a chosen Presidential Elector for the State of Arizona Republican Party, to put my vote in for Donald J. Trump for President should Mr. Trump win the state of Arizona.

I understand that if I do not fulfill this obligation that I am participating in frauding the Arizona people and the people of the United States of America by disrespecting our electorate process and voting against the will of the people.

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus on the first presidential debate: "While Donald Trump won tonight’s debate by being the candidate of true change in Washington, Hillary Clinton spent the night championing a broken system which has let the American people down time and again. Living up to her reputation as dishonest and untrustworthy, she revealed just how willing she is to put her own ambition above being truthful with the American people. Whether it was evading her flip-flops on TPP, misleading about an uptick in crime, or refusing to answer for her multiple botched foreign policy decisions, Hillary Clinton could not shed her trademark dishonesty and level with the public. Donald Trump showed he is the only candidate in this race with the ideas to stimulate our economy, defeat radical Islamic terrorism, and keep our streets safe in every community. The American people deserve better than a dishonest career Washington politician defending a failed status quo, and Donald Trump showed tonight he is the only candidate with the big picture leadership our country needs.”

Jerry Williams, American Precious Metals, Inc.: Frequently, I’m hearing concerns from clients about their difficulty in obtaining cash.  Bank employees are being told to ask depositors why they are taking out cash. If one withdraws more than $3,000, a suspicious activity report is created.  If more than $10,000 is requested, an IRS form must be filed.  You are a potential criminal for just trying to get your own money out of your account. Since essentially no interest is being paid on deposit balances, why not put funds where there is at least a chance for appreciation?  Like gold or silver for example.  Both have gained 25-30% this year.  There is no guarantee that performance will repeat, but the trend is clearly established, reversing a 5 year bear market. Gold would no doubt be priced higher were it not for the overwhelming supply of “paper gold.”  That is defined by exchange traded funds (ETF’s) futures contracts, allocated accounts and derivatives.  If, in the event of a financial calamity, these claims on real gold were demanded to be redeemed, only a small fraction of the underlying commodity would be available.  The failure of one large bank or brokerage firm could trigger such a scenario.  Prices would skyrocket and defaults would be massive.  Physical gold might not be obtained at any price.  AMRO, the large Dutch bank, did this 2 years ago.  Gold account holders received a check and a letter explaining that the bank had NO gold, therefore their accounts were being liquidated at current prices. Our entire global financial system is based on nothing but trust and faith.  Those emotions can vanish in a heartbeat.  Faith and hope are necessary for mental health, but a poor strategy for survival.  Think outside the box because we are all on our own.  Follow your instincts.

Former US Sen candidate Dr. Kelli Ward: The fight for Liberty rages on while the senate continues the fight for progressive ideals and bloated budgets. Last week, they proved once again that regardless of the overwhelming desire of conservatives to shrink spending, our senate majority leader released the text of the budget Continuing Resolution to fund the government from Oct 1st thru Dec 9th, 2016. The bill includes no riders to limit even one harmful Obama administration policy. The fight for Liberty requires conservatives that act, not capitulators with an ‘R’ after their name that continue to spend and give the democrats everything that they want. In order to continue the fight to elect conservatives, I need your help. Please donate today to help retire my debt by clicking here. Thank you for your continued support! For Freedom.
