Republican Briefs

Editor Frosty Taylor    Web Master John Strasser

Phones Are Jingling across the Valley since the yesterday’s Yellow Sheet reported allegations that AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham placed his campaign for the RNC Chairmanship over the importance of the RNC/Trump Train campaign in Arizona. Yellow Sheet also reports that Graham denies the allegations.

Yavapai County Republicans will celebrate Acker Night between 5:30-8:30 pm., Fri., Dec 9 at YAVGOP headquarters, 112B E. Union St., in Prescott. Music by Rusty Pistols. Refreshment. Guests are asked to contribute to “Tips for Scholarships.” All monetary donations go to Yavapai County school age children for music lessons.  J.S. Acker started a trust specifically to promote the culture of music to Yavapai County children in 1988.  This year in downtown Prescott there will be over 120 musical groups donating their time. You will hear all kinds of music from jazz combos to chorales. Participants are asked to donate at each venue.

Kendall Stephenson: I read the thing about Sheriff Joe’s being backed up by the court for his “legal” work place raids for people with stolen personal identities.  Of course the criminals don’t like to be caught.  Their mind set is that if you can get way with it, it is legal.  There’s no crime in breaking the law, the crime is in getting caught.  Look at what the Clintons and their cronies have done.  The stuff that my neighbors, that are in the U.S. illegally have stolen from me, is theirs now, fair and square.  They got away with it so now it’s their stuff. How about holding our new Sheriff liable to enforce the law. He will take an oath of office, repeating the oath of office he has taken before.  When he fails to do his job, charge him for TREASON and send him to prison. Just because people could dodge the law to get into our nation does not mean they can just break all the rest of the laws we have.

Don Langlois: Thank you, Frosty, for all that press coverage. Transplants are miraculous, but I believe this sequence of events truly was a miracle. Editor’s Note. Get well wishes to your son Eric.

Maricopa County Republican Statutory Meeting Chairman Liz Alcorn:

Again this year I am chairing the sales. Thank you for all the hours you put in daily to make your Briefs the best in the country. You are a true patriot. Editor’s Note: Contact Alcorn at 602-315-0349 or for information on tables, banners and flyers for the meeting.

It is a time for reflection, preparing for the upcoming year, and appreciation for the people in our lives that are - and have been - special to us. At this joyous season, may personal discords be forgotten and animosities healed. May our forgiveness reach out to those who have wronged us, even as we hope to be forgiven. May those whose hearts are heavy rise with healing and may they feel comfort and peace. May goodness abound in our hearts and love prevail in our homes. On behalf of the AzFRW Executive Committee, I wish you and yours the merriest and most blessed Christmas season. May the New Year bring you joy, good health, and every success possible, both professionally and personally and may God continue to bless America!
