Former Presidential Candidate Herman Cain: "The second question I'm often asked is would I be nervous if Trump actually became president. Nervous about what? No. I'm more nervous about the damage the current administration can do in the next 12 months and 16 days!"

 

Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio: Your Water Tax Increase is Going Towards Higher Compensation -- Your new water tax increase is going towards higher compensation.  Remember in 2010 when Phoenix politicians were telling you that they were cutting over 305 jobs? At the same time they were telling us that the water tax increase was needed for keeping the water safe.  It was later exposed that both those claims were not true. Phoenix politicians shifted those “cut employees” to the water department and then raised your rates to cover their costs. The average compensation per Water Department employee for FY 2008/09 was $76,705.91 and for FY 2015/16 is now $88,162.45. A whopping increase of over $11,000  per employee.  And yes, you read the that number correctly. The average compensation is $88,162 per employee. Same claim as 2010 and same use of your money. I need your help to once again expose this scam and sham on hardworking taxpayers. Please help by sharing these facts with everyone you know.

The Dow On Friday Lost Around 400 Points, or 2.4% -- off 8.2% in the first 2 weeks of the year. The Dow plunged as much as 536 points in the afternoon, leaving the index on track for its worst day since the late summer market freakout. The wave of selling dashes hopes that recent signs of stability in the market signified Wall Street's panic attack was over. On Thursday, the Dow jumped 228 points, its best day since early December.  CNN.com

 

Wendy Rogers Announces for CD1: Many of you supported me for Congress in 2014. After 2014, my plan was to get out of politics. However, the landscape has changed. I am deeply concerned we may not have a country to pass on to my grandchildren, if we stay on our current path
            America is in greater danger than at any time since WWII. President Obama has fundamentally weakened our country, domestically and internationally. Congress, which should have stopped Obama in his tracks by using the power of the purse, is filled with feckless career politicians.
            Mindful of these terrifying realities, I feel strongly called to serve. Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick is vacating her seat to run for the U.S. Senate. Since my husband and I have operated our home inspection business throughout Arizona's 1st District for 15 years, we decided to invest our time and resources into the Flagstaff community where we vote.
Today I run to be the next U.S. Representative in Arizona's 1st District.
            I'm seriously committed to serve, because we military realize our country is at war. Numerically, it is far more Republican-leaning than the district where I ran in 2014. Whoever wins the Republican primary is likely to win the race. Nationally, it is considered the top Republican pickup opportunity in the country. This means the Republican nominee will garner robust financial support in the general election.
            As a candidate, several attributes give me the edge. First, I am the only woman in the Republican primary field. AZ-1 research indicated voters prefer being represented by a congresswoman. Second, as a commercial pilot and owner of a small aircraft, I can more easily reach voters in the far-flung rural areas of the district. Third, I am the only political outsider in the race; voters crave a departure from the career politicians who comprise the rest of the field.

Richard W Hawkins of Lake Havasu City: Political Correctness is a Progressive ideology formally known as cultural Marxism.  Cultural Marxism is designed to create the new “Communist Man.”  Cultural Marxists use K-12 education and the media to initiate their “long march through the institutions,” including the government, the military, churches and the family. Cultural Marxism is the vehicle that is now used to fundamentally transform America.
     The immediate goals of cultural Marxists are to destroy or marginalize our traditional institutions of individualism, morality, family, church, constitutions, national sovereignty and private property/free enterprise.  The tools to accomplish this destruction are creation of victim classes based on materialism, race, sexual orientation, and gender and deconstruction of our traditional culture via Critical Theory, i.e. emotion based criticisms. Legalizing abortions, homosexual marriage, and no fault divorce along with promoting a false Islam, multicultural diversity, free sex, Anthropogenic Global Warming alarmism, green agenda, Black Lives Matter, social justice and wealth redistribution, equality of outcome, androgyny, and Obamacare are all aspects of cultural Marxism used to atomize and destroy the fabric of this nation for a new cultural dystopia.
     The end result for this fundamental transformation will be a very powerful and totalitarian central government due to the very nature of cultural Marxists to impose a uniformity of thought and behavior on a culture.  Dissenters incur the wrath of cultural Marxists by firings, charges of micro-aggression or silencing with vicious ad hominem attacks such as racist, Fascist, Islamophobe, homophobe, denier, flat-earther, bigot, hater, etc.  This wrath is now taking on new forms with punishment by administrative law and stiff fines. 
     This cultural “civil” war is between an ideology fostering collectivized socialism Vs an ideology founded on liberty, individualism and rule-of-law.  History has illustrated very well the human enslavement and destruction of collectivized socialism. It’s time to wake up!  Long Live the Republic!
