8-29-16 Briefs

Republican Briefs

Editor Frosty Taylor  repcomm@cox.net Web Master John Strasser

More PC Purging Shenanigans Surfacing: Briefs has reported incidents, for several years, of hard-working precinct committeemen being left off of flyers/mailers sent out to voters with a preferred PC list to vote for.  It’s known as “cleansing” or “purging” the grassroots conservatives out of leadership positions.  It lays the ground work for carrying the paper PCs proxy to the county and state conventions where they can then control the election of new party officers.  Never mind, they are driving worker bees out. This year LD17’s Angi Stamm, Jason Diefenbacher, Darrell Covert and Sandi Bartlett of “Bartlett’s Bunker” are among the targeted PCs. Stamm’s decided to expose what was happening in LD17 by preparing the flyer that Briefs posted 8-27-16-briefs

Yesterday Briefs was advised that three LD23 precincts were also targeted. See targeted precinct reported so far:

      LD17: Fiesta, Foxcrossing, Muskett precincts.

      LD23: Cocopah, McCormick Ranch and Golden Eagle precincts.

      LD24: Wilshire Precinct, See 8-17-16 Briefs

      LD25: Westwood Precinct,

      LD26: Precinct not named at the moment.

LD18 PC Peggy McClain: “I've been reading your coverage of the PC slates and the attempt to rid the party of conservatives. Recently I was sent a video by Joe Neglia about his research into some PC petition signatures in LD26. As it turned out, it was a McCain operative behind it and some of the signatures weren't valid and the potential PC dropped out when exposed. Have you seen Joe's video? Precinct Committeeman Petition Challenged It may relate to what is going on in the other precincts. Remember when McCain said he would rid the Party of the Crazies.”

Joe Neglia: “This is a recording of the speech I gave at the LD26 District Meeting on August 9, 2016. Precinct Committeeman Petition Challenged I made the video the next day, on August 10. I filed the lawsuit back in June. Incidentally, there is more to the story. The invalid signatures on Blaze Baggs nominating petition were actually collected by a circulator who also notarized Baggs nominating petition.”

Lydia Abril’s Canasta in Wickenburg was hopping Thursday evening as over 100 area residents gathered to hear Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio explain why he is solidly behind Presidential candidate Donald Trump and serves on his Arizona Trump Team. Arpaio said when Trump made his first trip to Phoenix, he was the only elected Arizona Republican official who stood with Trump. “In his speech, he brought up immigration and I have stuck with him ever since,” Arpaio said. “What is wrong with these Republicans who say, “We will support the nominee, instead of saying Trump? Do they want Hillary or Trump?” Arpaio questioned. The last time Trump was in Phoenix, Arpaio publicly reprimanded AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham for not using Trumps name in Graham’s commentary prior to Trumps speech. It was also noted that Arpaio has introduced Trump every time he flies into Phoenix. Arpaio, who has flown between Phoenix and Tucson in Trumps jet,  drew laughter when he commented, “There were so many buttons in that bathroom, I’m not sure if the toilet flushed.” Arpaio said four US Presidents have visited his famous “Tent City.” He drew more laughter when he said he was going to suggest that Trump put his name on Arpaio’s famous “inmate pink shorts” and sell them as a fund raisers. Noting a compassionate side of Trump, Arpaio said when Trump learned Arpaio’s wife Ava was ill, Trump grabbed a cell phone, called her and chatted with her. Arpaio stayed through the entire Wickenburg meeting; posing for photos and exchanging comments with the local folks as they filed out the door. A woman attendee commented, “He appears so serious on TV, but he was very relaxed and very funny. He gave a great speech.”

     Sheriff Joe didn’t just make a hit with the adult audience at the Believers for Trump meeting, he went out of his way to sign autographs for several young boys who shyly approached him before the meeting . In a grandfatherly manner, he quickly had them laughing as he jested with the kids comparing their new slick cell phones to his well-worn one. The son of Italian immigrates, Arpaio also had Abril and her waitresses laughing, as he jokingly tried to order spaghetti from the Mexican menu, noting he had lived in Mexico City for some time while serving with the DEA, long before he was elected Maricopa County Sheriff 24 years ago. - ft

Today And Every Day Until Hillary Clinton holds a formal press conference, the Republican National Committee (RNC) will issue a reminder of the number of days since Hillary Clinton has faced members of the media in an environment not carefully controlled by her campaign. Clinton owes the American people explanations on a number of issues, including, but not limited to: why she broke ethics agreements regarding foreign donations to her family foundation, why she gave preferential treatment to foundation donors as secretary of state, and why she should be believed that her off-the-books secret server wasn’t designed purely to cover up the shady pay-to-play politics between the State Department and her family foundation. It’s time for Hillary Clinton to hold a press conference. Hillary Clinton has not held a press conference in: 267 DAYS

The Republican National Committee (RNC) has released “Hillary’s Very Bad Week,” a new video highlighting another week of Clinton pay-to-play revelations, lies, and cover-ups from a fundamentally dishonest candidate beholden to special interests. “Hillary Clinton put the State Department up for sale to her donors and refuses to explain her own unethical behavior on issue after issue,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “The fact she has gone 266 days without a press conference tells you how anxious she is to sidestep public accountability and hopes voters forget her decades of shady business. Americans want to dismantle the failed status quo to put power back in the hands of the people, and Donald Trump is the only candidate capable of leading our country in a new direction.” Video here.
