Most Will Honor The Fallen This Memorial Day A sizable number of Americans regard Memorial Day as an important national holiday, and most plan on doing something special to honor those who have given their lives for their country. Read More
Iwo Jima Marine Cap: A Yard Sale Find! On this Memorial Day weekend, we remember those who’ve lost their lives while serving. But for one Valley man, a rare find is leaving him with a closer connection to our past. It was a yard-sale find! Read full article »

Ross Groen, a Marine Corp officer, has announced his candidacy for LD25 House. “As you know Justin Olson is not seeking re-election to the House in LD25. I have been very worried about our choices. The two names that have surfaced are part of the establishment, against strong enforcement or our immigration laws and have been part of the anti SB1070 crowd while Arizona and America suffer and Americans die. The cost is $2.6 billion annually in Arizona to educate, medicate and incarcerate illegal aliens,” Groen said. Groen is “committed to the Constitution. He is not an establishment puppet and will stand tall as he has all his life for America, Families, Freedom and all that is sacred and recognized by our Founding Fathers in protecting our God given rights in this Republic. “Ross Groen stands for:
· Economic Opportunity: Reduced regulation and allow private businesses to create jobs and prosper by removing the heavy hand of government regulation.
· Education: Returning the control of education to Parents on what is best for their children. A well-funded educational system. Accountability is best served by ensuring parents and students can choose schools that serve their needs.
· Protecting the unborn: Government’s primary duty is to protect innocent life, including the unborn.
· The Rule of Law: Our legal code should be clear, fair and uniformly enforced. No person, group or business should receive special exceptions from the law.
· Individual Rights: Free speech, religious s liberty and the right to bear arms must be continually safeguarded from the ever-growing regulatory state.
· Our Economic Future: We owe a duty to future generations to limit government, be fiscally responsible and balance budgets.
· Religious Freedom as out lined in our God given rights recognized in our inspired founding documents (Constitution and Bill of Rights),” reads his flyer Contact Groen at http://ross4az.com/
Out Wickenburg Way Marsha Hill, RJ Morris and Scott Powelson entertained quite a Memorial Day group poolside late yesterday afternoon.

Guests included Carol and Jim Arnett, Katie Scott, Vance Miller, Kari Froelicher, Betty Ek, Allison and Andrew Maine, Ron and Deb Pinell, Lillian Bedia, Gale and Pat Fiscus, Harriet Hagget, Gail and Gordon Graham, Arleen Younkman, Deb Berner, Crystal and Ray Nuttle, Terri and Ernie Zara, Jennie and Fred Zimmer, Vernon Taft, Kathi and Eric Okrassa, Sondra and Darin Mitchell, and Duane and Frosty Taylor.

Things Are Going To Get Interesting In LD13. Rumor has it that LD13 PC Diane Landis filed her paperwork for a run at the LD13 Senate seat just prior to the Memorial Day weekend. That seat is currently occupied by LD13 Sen Don Shooter of Yuma - who is termed out. Shooter is running for Rep Steve Montenegro’s House seat, while Montenegro is running for Shooter senate seat. To add to the competition LD13 Senate candidate William Gonzales, a 21 year Army Ranger, spent a lot of the holiday weekend gathering petition signatures in Wickenburg for his senate run. Ray Kouns of Aguila is running against Shooter for the LD13 House seat that Montenegro is vacating.
Crystal Nuttle has announced her candidacy for LD29 Senate. She is taking on Minority Whip Martin Quezada in the heavily Dem LD. You’ll be hearing more from Nuttle in the next few weeks.
Activist/Researcher Ann Herzer: Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt (Former Senior Policy Advisor US Department of Education) - your article on McCain was published in the May 29, 2016 Briefs, along with much more information on him. To all - Charlotte Iserbyt's article on McCain was picked up and published in China according to email from her this morning. Small world! Interesting information on this web today. See Henderson, KY for those near there.
Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt, Sr. Policy Advisor, U.S. Dept. of Education during the Reagan Administration: “Thanks, Frosty. Glad my article was reposted”: Iserbyt-Blows-The-Whistle-On-John-McCain May 2008 Editor’s Note: See other articles by Isersbyt
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu: “You and I have something in common, and that is our love for this great nation. We also know that nothing worth having comes without a price. Many brave men and women have given their lives fighting for our freedoms, and for our democracy. Today we honor them, and the courage they showed in defense of our nation. Thank you to our fallen service members, and all the men and women who continue to serve. God bless America.”
Congresswoman Martha McSally (retired Air Force Colonel): …Yesterday Was Memorial Day — the day that we, as a nation, remember the men and women who have died serving in our armed forces. After wearing the uniform for 26 years, this day has special meaning for me. It reminds me of the brave men and women I called friends who died in service to our nation. They made the ultimate sacrifice to keep us free and safe. I hope you will join me and take time today to pause and reflect on the heavy cost of our freedoms and say a prayer for the families of these selfless heroes. Don't have a Happy Memorial Day...have a meaningful Memorial Day.
US Senate candidate Kelli Ward response to incumbent Sen John McCain’s intent “Draft our Daughters, too” …Drafting our daughters deep down in a massive bill to pay our troops is exactly the kind of cowardly, underhanded, sneaky shenanigans that ordinary Americans hate about John McCain’s Washington. I agree with Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Phyllis Schlafly that drafting our daughters is ill-informed, idiotic, immoral, and absurd. While voluntary service is one thing, I will not let DC drag our daughters at gunpoint onto the battlefield. Extremist social engineering schemes from ivory tower academics and bitter feminists have no place in our armed forces. It’s sad to see John McCain once again caving into political correctness and leftwing ideological extremism, this time at the expense of our military effectiveness and national security.”
Sen Russell Pearce: OK my friends and Patriots. Our liberal legislators who gave you Common Core, who gave you Obamacare (called Medicaid Expansion), who worked with the Gay, Lesbian organizations to get the Gov. to veto SB1062 that was to protect you 1st Amendment right of religious association are working overtime to help elect liberal Republicans that support Amnesty, Gay Rights, Obamacare, Common core and yet run as Conservatives. Bob Worsley is the best friend Democrats have in the Senate and was “Centured” by his own District (LD25) and by Maricopa County Republican Party for his votes against our core values. There is a candidate to oppose Worsley that is actually a Conservative … Itasca Small. You can sign Itasca Small's petition online at http://apps.azsos.gov/equal/ Yes, she filed late and she has an uphill battle after she gets on the ballot, but we will do what we can with God's help.
LD2l5 Senate Candidate Itasca Small - Proud Member of the Unconquered and Unconquerable Chickasaw Nation: In the 2000s, my varied activities in county and state issues include voluntary participation in the development of the Navajo County Comprehensive Plan, the Arizona Department of Transportation “Building a Quality Arizona” plan, renewable energy land uses, and regional issues. In 2013/2014, I attended Common Core Forums, and the U.S. House of Representatives’ Field Hearing on the EPA, regarding the Navajo Generating Station, and IRS abuses. I frequently offer my suggestions and opinions to elected representatives and news publications, and am active in citizen groups.
Although I have focused upon education issues since the 2015 Regular Legislative Session, my interest and passion for defending our foundational principles of limited government and the proper role thereof is broad and varied. I readily engage in other issues that I believe threaten our God-given Right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness [Property]. My focus on education is spurred by the realization
that all of our other issues spring from the alarming state of education after more than a century of theprogressive and technocratic influences in our public schools!

The Architect Of Destruction Obama appears to be a tormented man who is filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps because, as a child, he grew up around family members and mentors who instilled him with an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. That bitterness seems not to have left him. It is not the color of his skin that is a problem – for anyone in America. Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.
Congressman Paul Gosar: On this Memorial Day, I am thinking of our brave men and women in uniform. America's service members are the nation’s greatest asset. Many have risked their comforts, families and even their lives in order to provide freedom for others. Nothing is more selfless. Memorial Day is specifically for honoring those who have died while serving in the Armed Forces. So let us recommit ourselves to ensuring no American forgets the true cost of freedom. Remember: we will always remain the land of the free, only because this is the home of the brave. On Memorial Day, there are many words spoken and speeches given honoring those who paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we may live free. But more important than words, are names.
We must remember their names because behind every name is a story. A father, a son, a daughter, a friend, a patriot. Copied below are the names of Arizonans from cities in the 4th district who died in the Vietnam War. You can learn more about these great Arizonans by clicking HERE.
