Former Senator Russell Pearce: The “NEVERTRUMP” crowd are in reality Hillary supporters. As more and more information comes out about the evil, lying, corrupt Hillary Clinton, we still have the “nevertrump” crowd. What does it take to recognize betrayal to our Party and more critically our Nation? As Sheriff Joe calls them “gutless Republicans. I might go a little further and recognize their betrayal of America. “The “nevertrump” crowd are really Hillary supporters, no other way to put it. We were asked and pleaded with to vote for McCain - the most hated and distrusted Republican in Washington with Flake right beside him - and yep, we voted for them. Now we have the same crowd that supports the bi-partisan Washington Cartel trying to sneak in their Hillary support by working against Trump. How disgusting and hypocritical.

Obama-Slaps-Face-Every-Legal-Immigrant-With One-Order This latest lawless infraction is simply a continuation of Obama’s promise of “transforming America” into a third word, debt riddled nation, stripped of its identity, its purpose and its ideals. Another “executive order” was enacted in July of 2015 exempting legal immigrants seeking citizenship through the nation’s Naturalization process and allowing them to ignore a vital part of the Oath of Allegiance, is hopefully Obama’s last gasp of contempt for America and for all those that have fought and died, to continue welcoming those seeking freedom, and somewhat ironic in that those seeking citizenship to no longer pledge to “bear arms on behalf of the United States.

Mesa Republican Women will meet between 11:30 am-1 pm., Thurs, July 7 at 11:30am -1pm at 1900 E. University Drive, Suite 11, Mesa 85213.

Tom Morrissey, Immediate Past Chairman of the AZ GOP: At the risk of taking this to the point of being ridiculous I will make one final point to Brian Reilly, who is a former LD 22 PC, about his fierce attack on Joe Arpaio.  That point is, Sheriff Arpaio has enforced the law in every sense of the word and much to the chagrin of the "open borders crowd" or as they are also known, the Establishment (Democrat and Republican).  Look around you Brian and you might see the deterioration of this county as we are being overrun as a direct result of open-borders policies.  Take a ride through West Phoenix.  Maybe even, get out of your car and walk a few blocks and if that doesn't shake you then maybe you can't be shaken.  Sheriff Joe has been handcuffed by the open-borders crowd, using what you cite in your last piece in the MCRC Briefs, as grievances against him.  In my opinion, what the voters of this county need to decide is, do they want the results of the open-borders mindset and philosophies to prevail, or do they want a safer community, as has been provided by the MCSO under the leadership of Sheriff Joe?  It's as simple as that.  What we are up against cannot be mitigated by tactics brought upon us by the 'timid".  It can only be met by those who have a spine, or what I call, True Grit.  Like Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Benghazi-GOP-Lawmakers-Say-Hillary-Clinton-Created Condition For Attack Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ignored repeated warnings of what one security agent called their “suicide mission” in Benghazi, creating the opportunity that terrorists took on Sept. 11, 2012, to kill the ambassador to Libya, two Republicans on the Benghazi probe charged Tuesday. As the Select Committee on Benghazi releases its long-awaited report, two of the panel’s Republican members, Reps. Mike Pompeo and Jim Jordan, released their own additional views, taking firm aim at Mrs. Clinton, who they said must answer for why she was so insistent on keeping people in Libya’s troubled second city — creating a target for the terrorists. “There was a very good chance that everyone was going to die,” one diplomatic security agent told the committee, recalling the troublesome security situation in the run-up to the attack.

Kris-Tanto-Paronto; Benghazi-Survivor-Fights-Radical Islam - Counters Obama’s ‘Lies’ On Terrorist Threat: One of the heroic survivors of the 2012 Benghazi attack, who held off invading Islamists until rescuers reached the besieged CIA base, has begun a national campaign to counter President Obama’s narrative on the terrorist threat. The former Army Ranger has started a nonprofit called “Leading From the Front”, which he hopes will translate into a national movement to drive home the real threat Islamic extremists pose to America. “Radical Islam is at war with America, and we are slowly losing,” Paronto said. “From Benghazi to Orlando, we are seeing the deadly consequences of President Obama and Secretary [Hillary] Clinton’s ‘leading from behind’ and their willful blindness towards the threat of radical Islam.”

Obama-Invites-18.7-Million-Immigrants To -Avoid-Oath-Allegiance-Pledge-To Defend-America It’s not only illegal aliens who are escaping enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws -- . Under the Obama administration’s expansive interpretation of executive authority, legal immigrants seeking citizenship through the nation’s Naturalization process are now exempt from a key part of the Oath of Allegiance. Immigrants seeking to become citizens no longer have to pledge to “bear arms on behalf of the United States.” They can opt out of that part of the Oath. Nor do they have to cite any specific religious belief that forbids them to perform military service…

Congressman Paul Gosar: Radical Islam, Not Guns, Responsible For Orlando Attack - Following the horrific Orlando terrorist attack, Democrats in Congress continue to try and distract the American people from the truth: President Obama and his allies have utterly failed to stop ISIS and keep the homeland safe. Shamefully, they are attacking law-abiding citizens and groups like the NRA instead of radical Islam. They claim Republicans, like me, are beholden to the NRA. Here is what they don’t want you to know: The NRA is not some secret political organization. The NRA is made up of more than 5 million Americans who believe in our God-given right to defend ourselves, our families, and our country. These 5 million Americans are not beholden to anyone. They freely choose to support the NRA, the Bill of Rights and elected leaders who won’t cave to knee-jerk, misguided attempts to strip away our Second Amendment. I will never support any laws that take away Constitutional rights from the American people. To those who claim I’m beholding to the NRA, why are you not beholding to the Constitution?

Congressman Paul Gosar’s past week: Signed FreedomWorks Pro-Growth Pledge. Learn more by clicking HERE. On Wednesday, he participated in the 10th annual “Hold Their Feet to the Fire” Radio Row hosted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) in Washington D.C. "The event draws dozens of radio talk hosts from across the country who broadcast their shows live while interviewing members of Congress, law enforcement, experts and those adversely impacted by unsecured borders and illegal immigration." I had a great conversation with Garret Lewis of KNST 790 AM discussing my legislative efforts to defund Obama's executive amnesty. I made my debut on the national award winning podcast, "Behind Enemy Lines" with Gene Berardelli and Russ Gallo out of New York City.

US Senate candidate Alex Meluskey “Our thoughts and our prayers are with the victims of the Terrorist attack in Ataturk airport in Istanbul, Turkey. This attack further underscores the need for the world to realize the clear and present danger Radical Islamic Jihadism poses to the peace and security of free people around the World. Radical Islamic Terrorist must be hunted down, brought to justice and ended so the world can look forward to a day without their culture of hate, violence and intolerance,” said Meluskey concerning the attack in Istanbul.

Maria Syms, a Town of Paradise Valley councilwoman, is running for a LD28 House seat. Syms is an Assistant Attorney General and Legal Policy Advisor to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich.

US Senate candidate Dr Kelli Ward: Have you noticed all the negative ads Establishment John has been running against us? He's spent well over $1 million just this month! He thinks our grassroots movement can be squashed just by pouring millions into despicable ads that lie about my record.What he doesn't realize is that this is about you, the grassroots, and how he doesn't think you deserve a seat at the table.That's why, for over three decades, he's said one thing on the campaign trail and another thing inside the DC Beltway -- he thinks you're too naive to realize that he's lying to you. Let's show him how wrong he is. This Thursday is the last filing deadline before the primary in August -- we need to show Establishment John that we have the will of the people on our side and we have no intention of backing down. We’re not backing down. Together, we'll send a strong message to the Establishment that for the final two months of this campaign, we'll give them a fight they've never seen before. help us send that message!
