McCain: Voter-Anger-Has-Me-Waging-Hardest-Re-Election-Battle-Of-My-Political-Career Incumbent GOP Sen. John McCain of Arizona says people’s anger with politicians in Washington has him running “as hard as I’ve ever run in my entire political career.” McCain said Sunday in Phoenix that voter’s anger with Washington that is fueling the presidential momentum of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders is having a similar effect for his campaign as he seeks a sixth term in office in November. “There is an anger and dissatisfaction with Washington out among millions of Americans, Republicans as well as Democrats,” he said.

ACTION ALERTS --Effort To End Ballot Harvesting Needs Help by Jose Borrajero www.facebook.com/azrrt The bill to stop the practice of ballot harvesting, HB2023, is not enjoying the level of popular support that it should. A quick look at the opinions expressed so far on the ALIS/RTS system show that those votes are running about 2:1 against HB2023.’ HB2023 passed in the House 34-23-3, along party lines, with one exception. Heather Carter of LD15 voted with the Democrats against it. The first senate test for HB2023 will be in the Senate Government Committee at 2 pm., Wed., Feb 24 in room SHR-3.  We at AZRRT are hoping and praying that the senators will see the value in this bill and pass it without delay and that our governor will sign it into law. However, legislative support is going to be difficult with an apparent popular opinion running 2:1 against. Among those who oppose this bill are the ACLU and the Sierra Club. It is not clear what is civil about ballot harvesting or how it helps tree and fish hugging. But these are extremely powerful organizations and they have the resources to mobilize a lot of people against HB2023. Our suggestion is a very simple three step course of action.

     1. Decide whether you really want to stop ballot harvesting and its potential for voter fraud. If you are not convinced, you will have a hard time doing #2 and #3.

     2. If you haven’t done so already, get on the AZ legislature website and render an opinion in favor of HB2023. If you don’t know how to do it, find out how at: https://www.dropbox.com/s/j93kqzlvdlwlwxb/RTS-Instructions.doc?dl=0

     3. Contact friends, relatives, acquaintances, etc. and ask them to contact legislators in support of HB2023.

Former Sen Russell Pearce- Action Alert : SB1377 and SB1378 were not heard last week as several Senators were absent.  These critical bills are scheduled to be heard Mon., Feb 22. How long do we allow our elected officials talk tough on illegal immigration and do nothing?  These bills will cut off funding for any County or City that does not enforce the law, any “catch and release” policy.  Call, write, attend the hearings in person if possible. These bills must pass. If any Republican votes against them they should be fired.  Citizens are murdered and maimed.  Americans put out of work.  Arizona Taxpayers are paying $2.6 billion annually to educate, medicate and incarcerate illegal aliens.  No more promises about enforcement or the rule of law.  They have a chance to prove they believe in this Constitutional Republic based on the Rule of Law.  It is time to stand up for America and Americans.  Do not let any of them off the hook.  You stood behind SB1070 by 73% across America and yet allowed the cities and towns to not fully enforce and Yes It Was Upheld By The U.S. Supreme Court.  It Is The Law!!!  You passed Proposition 300 in 2006 by about 75% that said NO to instate tuition.  That is a majority of every single demographic.   And yet your Community Colleges went to court to a liberal Judge Arthur Anderson who said to heck with the law, the voters, his Oath of Office and said given them in-state tuition.  If a “LEGAL” citizen goes to school in Arizona they pay out of state tuition.  This policy is not only illegal, it costs you the taxpayer millions of dollars. The Arizona Board of Regents also decided you don’t count and decided to give in-state tuition to illegal aliens.  How much longer are we going to allow them to make a mockery out of the law.  Enough Is Enough.

AzCDL - Action Alert: Defending your rights is not a spectator sport.  You are receiving these alerts because you want to stay informed about legislation affecting your right to keep and bear arms.  That’s only half the battle.  To win, we all need to participate.  Bills move when you tell your Representatives or Senator that you want them to pass.  If they don’t hear from you they will assume it’s safe to do nothing.  Your Senator needs to hear from you about SB 1257.  If you have not already done so, click here to send the email we have prepared for you to send to your Senator on SB 1257.  It only takes a few mouse clicks to make a big difference.

Congressman Paul Gosar has announced that Kyle Velez of Parker has been appointed to the US Military Academy at West Point. See photo HERE.

AzCDL Update: We thank everyone who used the Request to Speak (RTS) system to contact committee members and AzCDL’s Legislative Action Center to contact their Legislators.  Thanks to your efforts the following key firearms related bills survived the committee hearing deadline and are moving through the legislative process.
    HB 2081, which would prohibit checking with any federal (e.g., NICS) or state database on private property transfers, passed out of the House and was sent to the Senate on February 19.
    HB 2224, which would prohibit the state or any political subdivision from charging or levying a fee, tax, assessment, lien or other encumbrance on the transfer of a firearm between private parties who are not prohibited possessors, also passed out of the House and was sent to the Senate on February 19.
    HB 2338, the AzCDL-requested bill that would prohibit the governing board of educational institutions from banning firearms on a public right of way, passed out of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, February 17.
    HB 2524, the AzCDL-requested interstate compact that restricts member states from enacting firearm transfer requirement stricter than federal law, also passed out of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, February 17.
     SB 1257, the AzCDL-requested bill that would exempt CCW permit holders from being disarmed when entering state and local government controlled property unless everyone entering is screened for weapons, was on the calendar for a Senate Committee of the Whole (COW) debate on February 15 but was “retained.”  We expect to see it calendared again in the next few days.  We need to continue to put pressure on our Senators to pass SB 1257.  If you have not already done so,
email to your Senator on SB 1257.
     SB 1266, which would allow for injunctions, fines and civil suits when state agencies or local governments disregard state firearm preemption statutes, passed out of the Senate and was sent to the House on Thursday, February 18.
    Bills passing out of the House to the Senate and vice versa begin the review process all over.  They must survive additional committee hearings and floor votes.  The next critical deadline is Friday, March 18.  That’s when all surviving Senate bills must be heard in House committees and all surviving House bills must be heard in Senate committees.

GOP-Sets-Another-Turnout-Record-Democrats-Numbers Republicans’ turnout streak continued, with GOP voters shattering their South Carolina primary record Saturday night. With almost all precincts reporting, more than 737,000 votes had been counted. That was more than 20 percent higher than 2012, when about 603,000 voted. It follows record GOP turnout in Iowa’s caucuses and New Hampshire’s primary earlier this month.By contrast, Democrats’ turnout has tumbled from its 2008 records in all three contests, including Saturday’s caucuses in Nevada. About 80,000 voters took part in the caucuses, with was 33 percent less than 2008’s level. Republicans hold their caucuses Tuesday in Nevada, while Democrats shift to South Carolina next weekend.

LD20 Rep Paul Boyer, chairman of the House Education Committee, has voters angry for sitting on parent rights and anti-Common Core bills. He also sat on two bills that Dem Eric Meyer attempted to have heard. Meyer’s HB2321 would have established a pilot program through the Board of Regents, offering internships to students studying science, technology, engineering or math (STEM). HB2322 would have established a safe-to-tell program, allowing anyone to anonymously report bullying behavior at a public school or on a school bus to a hotline. Boyer canceled three appointments with two students trying to advocate for its passage. "I think it's a shame. I absolutely think he should meet with them, but I don't know, he's one of the biggest jerks we have here at the Capitol," State Treasurer Jeff DeWit said. lawmaker-stonewalls-kid-crusaders-on-anti-bullying-bill

Nevadans for State Gun Rights President Don Turner sends word of concern regarding the support to pass Bloomberg’s Universal Background Check ballot initiative here in Nevada. “The support for this initiative shows many Nevadans are unaware of its damaging consequences.

Editor’s Note: Turner is a retired AZ Game and Fish Dept Law Enforcement Administrator.

Congressman Matt Salmon: I wanted to quickly email you to let you know that I will be holding a Town Hall next Monday evening, February 22, at the Central Christian Church in Mesa.  We'll be discussing the complicated issues facing our nation and the latest developments in Washington and around the fifth district. From Mesa to Washington, there are so many important issues facing us today. I want to invite you to come, take part in this event and share your thoughts on the many challenges facing our community, state, and country. The Town Hall will take place at 6 pm until 7 pm at the Chapel of Central Christian Church, 933 N Lindsey Road., Mesa, AZ 85213. RSVP my office at (480) 699-8239.

Congressman Paul Gosasr: Fighting against the out-of-control size and scope of the federal government has been one of my biggest priorities since I first was elected to Congress. The growing number of unelected bureaucrats and federal agencies has led to more government corruption and incompetence which directly impacts millions of Americans. This is the root of almost every problem that we face today as a nation: Federal agencies are too big to function effectively or efficiently with zero accountability. The solution is to shrink the size of the federal government through the "Power of the Purse" and give the power back to the states where it belongs.  Imagine my frustration at reading The Daily Caller reported that "the EPA Office of Inspector General (IG) investigated dozens of EPA employees between April 2014 and September 2015, but didn’t include the names of even the most serious offenders in three reports summarizing employee integrity cases released this week. The EPA allowed most of the employees involved to retire with full pensions, or suspended them for a few days or weeks...  EPA employees watched porn on the job, stole government equipment — selling it for quick cash — and drove under the influence while on the clock, but Americans who fund their salaries will likely never know their names." The employee integrity cases further corroborate a culture of corruption at this lawless agency. This collection of porn addicts, office thieves and drunk drivers are not fit to run for dogcatcher much less manage a federal agency. If EPA employees would have been doing their jobs instead of watching porn, they might have reported sooner that the water in Flint, Michigan was poisoned. Sadly, this type of vile behavior has become the status quo under the leadership of Administrator Gina McCarthy who has on numerous occasions broke the law by lying to Congress in order to force overreaching regulations down our throats. This lawlessness will continue until someone is held accountable and punished. That is why I have led the way in calling for impeachment proceedings to begin immediately for McCarthy. For too long, government bureaucrats have been immune to the laws that everyone else must follow and that must end now before the EPA does any more damage to our country.

AzCDL - RTS Account Activation: When it comes to the RTS system, your “votes” play a critical role in getting AzCDL supported bills through committees.  The anti-rights groups may be evil but they aren’t stupid.  They see what we’ve done and have been encouraging their followers to do the same.  We need to continue to dominate during committee hearings.  RTS accounts can only be created or activated at official terminals at the Capitol.  If you are a current AzCDL member committed to making a difference, our volunteers will create your RTS account for you.  All you need to do is reply to this message asking us to create your RTS account along with your email address and first and last name.  We’ll take it from there.

Aaron Gidwani, MCRC Western PC Coordinator: This weekend David Osmond was in town and played a riveting and moving concert piece for INSPIRE, The mission of INSPIRE: music.service.hope is to lift hearts and inspire others through music, education, and service.  “It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we don’t care who gets the credit,” said Olive Osmond to her grandson before passing away, a statement that has stuck with David Osmond.  That statement can and should be applied to our 2016 election process, as we all pitch in and do our part we will WIN.  Attached is a musical tribute David played last night honoring our armed forces.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiaHE5zytt0

Congressman Paul Gosar: “As I'm sure you're aware, tax season is once again upon us. What you may not know is that there are many online scammers, criminals and con artists representing themselves online as legitimate enterprises that are in fact out in force to steal your identity and file fraudulent tax returns in your name. It's estimated that online scammers have robbed taxpayers of an estimated $21 billion dollars, and they continue to grow more sophisticated and aggressive in their tactics. Be extremely careful this year as you file, and to learn more how to avoid scams and not be a victim of this growing criminal enterprise and I suggest you read through this Fact Sheet to help you stay safe online. Taxes are no fun to begin with; don't let it be even worse by falling prey to fraud!”

AzCDL –Tracking Bills: The status and summary of bills that AzCDL is monitoring can be found on our Bill Tracking page. The deadline for all bills to be heard in committees in their originating chamber (House or Senate) was Friday, February 19. Over half the bills that we were monitoring failed to meet that deadline.  They are dead for the remainder of the session.  The good news is that the progress of the bad bills is over.  The not so good news is that a number of good bills also did not meet the deadline.  In particular, HB 2072, this year’s iteration of Campus Carry, was among the casualties.

Republican Delegate Scorecard for Feb. 12, 2016 Now that the primaries are underway, votes and delegates matter more than polls. On the Republican side, one candidate would need to capture 1,237 of 2,472 delegates to the Cleveland convention to clinch the nomination. To help you keep track of who's ahead, the Cook Political Report has devised a delegate scorecard estimating how many delegates each of the five leading GOP contenders would need to win in each state and territory to attain 1,237 delegates by June. Three factors make the odds of a contested GOP convention higher than in past years. First, this year's Republican field is quite crowded, and even after the New Hampshire primary there are five serious contenders: Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, John Kasich, and Jeb Bush. Second, GOP voters's allegiances seem to be split into three different "lanes" that don't look likely to merge anytime soon. And third, over 60 percent of GOP delegates will be awarded on a proportional rather than winner-take-all basis… Full article http://cookpolitical.com/story/9251

160221-1235 - AZRRT Call To Action By Jose Borrajero. This week we will have action on two important bills.

HB2023 – Ballot Harvesting – Thanks to all your calls, e-mails, and RTS votes, we have improved the ratio of “for” to “against” expressed opinions from a dismal 1:2 to a more favorable almost 50/50. But the other side is not giving up, and neither should we. Make sure you let our legislators know your support for HB2023

SB1378 – Sanctuary cities – Again as a result of your efforts, the “for” side is ahead of the “against” side, but we need to keep up the pressure. The other side is making plenty of money from illegal alien exploitation and are not eager to give up their cash cow easily.

The following table contains legislative bill(s) that are coming up soon for action in our state legislature. Please choose the bills that are most important to you, then contact everyone in the “who to contact” column and ask them to vote yes or no, depending on your wishes.
