Lydia Abril, Owner Of Lydia’s La Canasta Restaurant In Wickenburg, is hosting four “Believers For Trump” events at her restaurant at 2023 W Wickenburg Way (SW corner of Hwy 60/Vulture Peak Way). The events are scheduled at 7 pm on July 14, 28, August 11, and 25. Speakers who strongly support Trump will be present at each event.  Speakers’ will be announced as they are confirmed. Attendance is free; no obligation to purchase a meal.  However, the kitchen will be open for the convenience of those who wish to dine before the events start.  Those intending to dine should notify the restaurant in advance by calling Abril or Renee Sparks at 480-589-0511. Diners should arrive by 6pm to ensure they have completed their meals before 7pm. A Republican voter registration table will be available at each event for the convenience of those who would like to register to vote in the upcoming Presidential election. Abril said she is hoping to attract Hispanics from Aguila, Congress, Morristown, Wittmann, and Yavapai County who support Trump, but have not yet registered to vote.

Dale Gohr of Clarkdale: The New Standard or “Secret to Success” has been openly displayed by the FBI Director James Comey’s dance to dodge discipline for Hillary Clinton because it shows the distinct need to lie, distort, cover-up, intimidate, and claim innocence, The Clinton’s have enjoyed an exalted position of living above “the law;” the “State of Arkansas Bar Association” is the only operation that has meted any punishment to the William Jefferson Clinton family and that was to pull Bill Clinton’s attorney license. Bill Clinton was impeached and allowed to stay in the Presidential Office. I have been called a “racist” for disagreeing with Obama policies; a “homophobe” for belief that the creation of male and female without artificial changes; and “Islamiphobic” for believing the Qur’an means exactly what it says about grotesque treatment of people who do not agree with their World Takeover Doctrine. I’m probably a “Clin-tonian’ophobic” for talking about the corruption, manipulation, suicides, drug connections and strange deaths that have enveloped the Clinton associates. Comey’s dance to keep from charging Hillary for breaking the Laws that he outlined as clear violations is unique. What was unexpected was his admission that if someone else had done the same thing there would almost certainly be consequences. If that is not a solid case to charge Comey with preferential treatment or selective enforcement of the law; it should be. Donald Trump’s claim of a “rigged system” is personified with the “impromptu” meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the rhetoric of Barack Obama on the campaign trail. Hillary and Obama had obviously conspired in the “Benghazi Cover-up. Still roughly half of the United States population is so uninformed and apathetic that they support the ‘Deceptive Democrat Demagogues’. Apathy and Ignorance know no bounds. Wake-up America; join the endeavor to “Make America Great Again”.

Zack Taylor, Chairman and Border Security Expert - National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers: Please distribute Islamophobia Kills widely.  Every American needs to read this and understand it. And let's not forget, the real threat was and continues to be the overt acts of the U.S. Government in compromising our Immigration Laws that planted the seedlings in this country that perpetrated these acts before any of these enumerated events took place.  It is called cause and effect. The text book case of the Boston Bombers was the only valid example of this we needed to see to fully understand the problem and the misinformation and disinformation spread about that situation is also an example of what Mr. Greenfield is outlining and defining. Immigration Laws Matter because their primary purpose is to protect National Security and Public Safety. No Immigration Law Enforcement yields no National Security and no Public Safety.  How many times must this be demonstrated before the political class and media are forced to acknowledge it by the American people ?

Arizona Needs 10,000 Qualified Individuals Who Will Work On Election Day. The 2016 election cycle is going to be busier than ever as America elects a new President. This means Arizona could see record levels of voter participation. With more than 1,500 polling locations and seven positions needed per location, Secretary of State Michele Reagan is urging Arizonans to become an integral part of the process and join the ranks of those who serve as paid poll workers. “As we approach the August and November elections it’s possible that more Arizona voters participate in the process than we have seen in a long time,” said Reagan.  “The simple truth is that poll workers are on the front lines of our democracy as they ensure our elections are run efficiently and fairly.  Compensation varies, but each county pays their workers for their service. With more than 3.3 million registered voters in Arizona, voter turnout could reach 80 percent in the General Election with more than 2 million voters participating.  With thousands of polling places scattered in every corner of the state, I would encourage those who would like to have a front row seat on election day to contact their local election officials and find out how they can get involved.” “To sign up as a poll worker, or to learn more about qualifications, training, responsibilities and compensation visit: www.azsos.gov or sign up: http://bit.ly/24AhNfy.

CONGRESSIONAL STATEMENTS

Please comply with the 300 word limit policy. If statements exceeds the limit, it will be edited.

Senator Jeff Flake: Wolf at the Committee’s Door: Sen. Flake and Sen. McCain are requesting that the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee hold a hearing on their bill to require the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to revise its three-decade-old recovery plan for the Mexican gray wolf in Arizona and New Mexico. That bill – which takes into the account the concerns of land owners and local officials – would also require that the USFWS work with state and local entities to ensure they have input in the drafting of that new recovery plan. Read the request here.

· Key Takeaway: "The recovery of this species affects property owners, ranchers, recreationists, and other stakeholders near its range. More information is needed on the impacts to these individuals, evaluation of the Service's current efforts to recover the wolf in Mexico, and details of an updated recovery plan," wrote Sen. Flake and Sen. McCain. 

Holding DHS Accountable on Border and Immigration Issues: In a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Flake sought answers from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson on several border and immigration-related issues impacting Arizona. Flake pressed DHS on U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s inability to meet congressionally-mandated staffing levels at ports of entry (despite the passage of hiring initiatives such as Sen. Flake’s Border Jobs for Veterans Act), the number of criminal aliens released by DHS only to be rearrested for other crimes, and reports that South American immigrants apprehended illegally crossing the U.S-Mexico border are simply being released at U.S. bus stations. Read the full story here.

· Key Takeaway: “The numbers are staggering. For those criminal aliens released from detention there was a 35 percent re-arrest rate and a 41 percent in absentia rate…This is certainly unacceptable. A 35 percent re-arrest rate and a 41 percent in absentia rate, yet we are continuing to let these people go?” – Sen. Flake to DHS Sec. Johnson
