Activist Anita Christy: Did you receive the flyer paid for by Right Way Super-PAC stating that Paul Gosar (CD4) voted against funding for our military and their families? I suggest you read Outing Ray Strauss, the Phony Conservative Running Against Rep. Paul Gosar in AZ-4.   In my own experience, Rep. Gosar is one of the most Conservative, Constitutional, pro-military representatives in Congress. "Rep. Gosar’s reputation as a fighter for the conservative agenda has left him as one of the few reliable full spectrum conservatives in the House."

Activist Art Olivas: Who will I vote for is what I am asked all the time. I will not follow endorsements or lobbyist. I have always said research. That way you know what to do. When you follow without knowledge you never know where you are going until its too late. The media and the Republicans In Name Only (RINOs), Unions and their parasites - that live off illegal immigrants - help me make up my mind. If they come out against Sheriff Joe Arpaio or Donald J. Trump, that is my candidate! Do you see them going after a Rick Gray or a Andy Tobin? What about a Steve Montenegro? Ask yourself why don't illegals, unions or the media go after those who make all their speeches professing to be Grassroots conservatives?? I will vote for no career politician that has helped put us in the mess we are in!! Hell no I don't believe in political correctness - I call them like I see them. They should be serving us, not us supporting their illegals that march with flags of foreign countries in our streets and capitol demanding and getting more benefits from us - the tax paying citizens. Wake up now people while we are still U.S. citizens - it will be too late after the RINOs give us to Mexico. I mean what I say and I say what I mean. You can take that to the bank

New-Study-On-Concealed-Carriers …The study examined data from Texas and Florida, two states that most accurately reflect the nation at large, and found that concealed carry holders are not just less likely to commit a crime than their fellow citizens, but they’re even less like to commit crime than police officers.

Alex Stroman, RNC Director of Surrogates and Media Training: The drip, drip, drip continues on Hillary Clinton's email scandal. New emails reveal pay-to-play at Clinton's State Department, more details drip out about her secret server scandal, and that the Obama Department of Justice reportedly refused to open an investigation into the Clinton foundation, despite an FBI request to do so.

Establishment Targets Gosar For Fighting In Behalf Of His Constitutes Sarah Palin explains why the Establishment is determined to get rid of Arizona’s Congressman Paul Gosar. Top ranked conservative Gosar is targeted because he stands up to the good ole boys on Capitol Hill.

Secretary of State Michele Reagan has notified Gov Doug Ducey that initiative measure I-08-2016, the Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act, has met the signature requirements for placement on the Nov 8, 2016 General Election ballot.  The SOS has certified that the number of signatures for the initiative are in excess of the minimum required by the constitution to place a measure on the general election ballot. The number of valid signatures filed with this petition, based on the random sample, appears to be at least 100% of the minimum required or through examination of each signature has been certified to be greater than the minimum required by the constitution.

Alex Stroman, Republican National Committee Director of Surrogates and Media Training: It doesn’t look like Hillary Clinton set up her secret server out of “convenience” but instead to hide all of her shady dealings, including favor for donors to the Clinton Foundation and her pay-to-play State Department. Additionally, another report reveals that Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s Chief of Staff at the State Department, did work on behalf of the Clinton Foundation while at State. America can’t afford to have its next president compromised by conflicts of interest with foreign donors and besieged by scandal, but it’s clearer than ever that’s exactly what will happen if Hillary Clinton wins the White House.
