Condolences To The Family Of Tempe Republican Women Club member Angie Jacobson, who husband Al, has passed away. Services will be held at 10:30 am., Mon., April 4 at St. Daniel, The Prophet Catholic Church, 1030 N Hayden Rd., Scottsdale. There will be a Rosary service at 10 am.

Cochise County PC Bruce M Piepho: “ We in Cochise County just had our county convention to elect state delegates. A number of PCs are P.O. (not post office) about the fee to attend the state convention. It is not a question of affordability. We have to drive about 500 miles round trip and that is the real expense. The $50 fee is nonsense and indecent based on principle. Any business activity of the CCRC or any county republican organization or any LD or CD meetings the costs to conduct the meeting should come out of the organization's treasury. In this case the treasury of the AZGOP and I as well as others do not buy the crap of saving the money to win elections for republican candidates. The AZGOP spends money on campaigns for candidates that I have no use for at all such as John McCain for senate. The autocratic decision to use my pocket book to finance business events is more than disgusting. As Trump used to say on his TV show to certain parties --- YOU ARE FIRED (Robert) Graham.”

Republican National Committeeman Bruce Ash hit the nail on the head when he posted “Obama acting like a complete jack ass” with the UK photo/article Peace-fools-Obama-plays-clown-flashing-peace-sign-nuclear-security-summit-team-photo-gets-unimpressed-looks-bemused-world-leaders Contact: www.grassrootsteapartyactivists.com/grtp@grassrootsteapartyactivists.com

The Arizona Supreme Court has set May 19 to review Will Graven’s Petition for a Writ of Mandamus to Order Attorney General Mark Bronovich  to take his (Graven’s) Snell & Wilmer Case before the State Grand Jury. Word has it that some big names are sweating. Seems it has drawn the attention of some state legislators. fraud-victim-pleads-brnovich, supreme-court-for-justice

AZ Leg Live is a new tool developed by students at Arizona State University to help you better understand what your legislators are doing at the State Capitol. http://www.azleglive.info/

A New Website full of facts regarding the National Convention is also available at RNC Conventionfacts.com

The Arrowhead Republican Women have named Briefs Editor Frosty Taylor a “Life Member Of ARW In Thanks And Recognition For Years Of Public Relations Service To ARW And All of Arizona.” Editor’s Note: Thank you very much for the honor and recognition. - ft

Ever Since AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham let it be known that the April 30 State Convention delegates/attendees would be charged a $50 admission fee, reports have circulated that the AZGOP is attempting to control participation to those who support the Republican National Committee (RNC)/Establishment in keeping frontrunner Presidential candidate Donald Trump from becoming the national nominee for the November general election. National media reports indicate that the RNC will attempt to manuever former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney or Speaker Paul Ryan instead or Trump or Ted Cruz onto the ticket. Karl Rove is already talking about looking for a “fresh face.” Delegates to the April 30 meeting will select the delegates that will go the National GOP Convention in Cleveland in July where the national nominee is selected.

It seems the $50 AZGOP State Convention fee isn’t just a hot topic in Maricopa County. Rumblings of turbulence in Yavapai County over the fee became public this week, as can be seen in the March 29 exchanges between Yavapai County Republican Chairman Mark Sensmeier and PC Rick Hennessey. Fifteen others were cc’d on their exchanges.

Sensmeier sent information on the April 30 AZGOP State Convention to his PCs on March 29, to which Hennessey replied, “Your argument that all these other states fleece their PC’s doesn't hold water. If my neighbor decides to jump off a cliff does that mean I should? When Robert Graham lets us know where that supposed $8M is and why the State can't pay for the convention center, maybe I can swallow the $50 extortion. You and Robert must think we are all fools.”

In part, Sensmeier replied “Even if the state GOP has the money to pay for the event (which they do), I'd rather they allow us to defray some of the expenses and let AZGOP use money they've raised to support Republican candidates in the general election. I'm not a Bernie Sanders guy. When I attend an event in a nice, expensive venue, I don't expect other people to pay for me. Incidentally, if it were up to me, I would have offered a discounted price to delegates/alternates who are also PC's. We already have "skin in the game" through our commitment as PC's and it wouldn't be bad if we got some kind of credit for that.  We did that for our last dinner.”

Hennessey fired back, “I know a lot of people who are PC’s that are not running for the State Convention because they cannot afford the $50. I also know a lot of people that did not go to the Lincoln Dinner because they could not afford it. This State (GOP) hasn't forced people to pay to go to the State Convention since 1968 when the Republican Party was BROKE! You are using Robert's talking points to justify your agenda. As you should know I am not the only one in this State pissed off. There is a lawsuit pending that I am more than happy to sign on to. This is straight up extortion. If a candidate signs a piece of paper that they are willing to pay the $50 they should NOT be forced to pay it until the day of the State Convention. If they are, then you and Robert are saying you don't trust the elected PC's. That speaks volumes!!!”

Sensmeier responded with, “I'm not sure what you think my "agenda" is, other than running a clean election on April 9 and making sure Yavapai is fully represented at the state convention. I still don't buy the "only Trump supporters can't afford the $50" argument.  I know plenty of folks on all sides for whom $50 is not trivial. It is not trivial for me, either (and I'm looking at $100 as I will pay for my son to go as well if he is elected).  But I'm willing to sacrifice a few other items I might otherwise squander my money on to have a chance to do my duty as a citizen.

“And don't forget that we are not just talking about PC's. Any Republican can be elected. So should you trust someone who just registered as a Republican yesterday (and we have some of those) that they will promise to pay the $50?  What if they won your spot and then no-showed at the convention?  From a practical perspective, it's going to take enough time to check-in 1500-2000 people the morning of the convention without having to collect money from them all at the same time.

“I get that there is a group of folks that are angry with Robert Graham. There were also a bunch of people angry with Tom Morrissey. And a bunch angry with Randy Pullen before that. None of them are/were perfect. They've all made decisions or run things in ways that I was happy and/or unhappy with. In the end, we all have to weigh our consciences and decide whether to be constructive and positive, or be angry and destructive.  I've been both, but much prefer the former. It's much better for my health.”

Hennessey replied: “…I never said only Trump supporters couldn't afford the $50, and this crap that we as good Republicans should have to pay for a convention hall is a crock of crap. The AZGOP and YAVGOP are always trying to raise money. Are we now going to be charged to go to the State Committee meetings. Robert boasts how he has raised $8M. If the State Committee has all this money let them pay for the damn convention center. I know plenty of people who aren't supporting Trump that cannot afford the $50. I know that you who live on your big houses on the hill think that $50 isn't a lot of money. Reality check; some of us milk goats and raise cattle to feed our families. I don't get a big paycheck from Embry Riddle and neither do most of the PC's in this county. Most of us are just barely getting by. Pull your heads out of your Royal Royce's Asses and realize this is nothing more than a fleecing to rig the National Convention. I would love to go to the National Convention but I can't afford it, therefore I am not running. I am sick and tired of the Establishment trying to pander to me.”

Sensmeier informed Hennessey,  “…Please don't presume to know my financial situation.”

Hennessey responded, “ …This fight isn't about you or your house! It's about the fact that AZGOP and YAVGOP are fleecing the PC's for $50 to go to a convention that the State Party has always paid for. The last convention - which was a total wreck - had vendors who served food that the participants paid for. Now we are being forced to pony up $50 to pay for lunch and rent on the hall. I, as many, do not give a s**t what other States do! You and Robert need to realize that what you are doing is fixing the Convention.”  -- ft

Blogger Barbara Espinosa: The below story was in the MCRC Briefs and whoever thought up this idea of suing the AZGOP over a $50.00 charge should be ashamed of themselves. Patriotic PC’s would not think of even threating a lawsuit they would know it is to help defray the cost of renting the space and providing their lunch. The ultimate goal of the AZGOP to elect Republicans in upcoming races. If a $50.00 charge will help save money to be spent on electing Republicans, ”PONY UP and QUIT BITCHING”. That will show how Patriotic you are. Editor’s Note: Espinosa is referring to this story: LD26 PC And Former Marine Matt Papke has announced that a group of “Patriotic PCs” are seriously considering taking legal action against Robert Graham and the Arizona Republican Party over the $50 fee imposed on delegates.

AzCDL Legislative Update: Gov Doug Ducey signed HB 2224 into law on Wed., March 30.  HB 2224 is the AzCDL-requested bill that 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.

For the next couple of weeks, progress on all non-budget legislation will be deferred while the Legislature focuses on the state budget.  The following is the status of the key bills we are monitoring.
HB 2081, which would prohibit checking with any federal (e.g., NICS) or state database on private property transfers, passed out of the Senate Committee of the Whole (COW) on March 24.  It only needs a Senate Third Read floor vote before being sent to the Governor. 
letter to your Senator.

HB 2338, the AzCDL-requested bill that would prohibit the governing boards of educational institutions from banning firearms on public rights of way, such as city streets and sidewalks that happen to pass through campuses, passed out of the Senate COW on March 28.  It only needs a Senate Third Read floor vote before being sent to the Governor. Click here .
HB 2524, the AzCDL-requested bill that would establish an interstate compact that restricts member states from enacting firearms transfer requirements that are more restrictive than existing federal law, passed out of the Senate COW on March 28.  It only needs a Senate Third Read floor vote before being sent to the Governor. 
support HB 2524.

SB 1257 is 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.  We have learned that the Governor’s office is getting pressure from state agencies and local governments about the cost of preventing law-abiding citizens, the only people who currently obey the “no guns” signs, from entering their facilities if SB 1257 becomes law.  The Legislative leadership is also being pressured to prevent SB 1257 from getting to the Governor.  SB 1257 has already passed out of the Senate.   We are working with the Governor’s staff and the House Leadership to ensure that SB 1257 will not be buried and will get to the House floor. We still need your help in keeping pressure on House members to pass this important legislation.  support 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 House COW on March 24.  It only needs a House Third Read floor vote before being sent to the Governor.
support SB 1266.

Arrowhead Republican Women’s Second Vice President Arlene Goldblatt reports that the newest members include Linda Trantina, Mimi Levinson, Barbara Janes, Gayle Burns, Catherine Austin and Miryam Gutier-Elm with Joann Utt and Honora Levin as associate members.

Sheriff Paul Babeu announced today that all of the Department of Corrections inmates housed at the Pinal County Jail since July 2015 were returned to state custody this week, and all of the costs associated with housing the inmates under the emergency contract have been recovered or have been billed to the state. Damages from riots last summer at a privately run state prison in Kingman led to more than1,000 inmates being transferred to other prisons. 379 of those prisoners were accepted and housed in the Pinal County Adult Detention Center until this week. Babeu said, “The last bus load of the department’s inmates pulled away from the Pinal County Jail on Wednesday afternoon and our jail population has returned to previous levels of 657 inmates. We have made the necessary staffing adjustments to make sure the jail continues to operate effectively and my staff as well as the inmates are in a safe environment.” Babeu summarized the financial results of the nine-month emergency contract saying, “The County recovered $1.355 million in salaries and related expenses during this contract. The reimbursement covered the cost of additional staffing and supervision, as well as overtime, meals, housing expenses and support services for the department’s inmates. We are facing budget cuts that may make it difficult to maintain critical staffing level in the future, but this contract got us through the remaining months of this fiscal year.”

Sen John McCain held town hall meeting with Honeywell employees in Phoenix today.

Jan Martinson, Arrowhead Republican Women First Vice President - Christian Genocide :My information for this article comes from the Media Research Center. Pressure is now mounting on the Obama administration to declare Christians as genocide victims of ISIS. Just ask any Christian denomination - all will speak of it. Yet this administration hasn’t decided it is. What else could it be? More “workplace violence?” If the U.S. government officially declared the genocide was taking place against these minorities, it would put further pressure on the United Nations Security Council to issue a similar declaration. That could lead to trying perpetrators in the International Criminal Court. Secretary of State John Kerry insisted “additional evaluation” would be needed before calling ISIS persecution a “genocide.” Last November, the glossy magazine of ISIS bluntly announced its “takfir” against unbelievers would continue. “It will continue to wage war against the apostates until they repent from apostasy.” They declare war against the pagans, against the Jews, and against the Christians. The goal is plain: everyone will be Muslim, and the apostates will be slaughtered. How can it be that our media is so quick to condemn Americans’ pluralism and freedom of religion as shamefully inadequate, while they hold ISIS and other Muslim persecutors to no standard at all? Failure to declare ISIS depredations as genocide makes America look weak and indecisive. What can justify this unconscionable delay? Borrowed from the Arrowhead Republican Women’s newsletter.

· Congressman Paul A. Gosar after submitting multiple appropriations language and program requests to the House Appropriations Committee aimed at combating invasive species, especially in western states like Arizona: “The economic livelihood of countless rural communities throughout western states depends on the proper management of wildlife and invasive species. Arizona has some significant challenges when it comes to burros, tamarisk and quagga mussels. It is absolutely critical that there is coordination between federal, state and local stakeholders as well as the necessary resources in order to meet these unique challenges. It is up to the House of Representatives to ensure western priorities are addressed and I’m proud to lead these efforts for Arizona’s communities.” Related stories:
