900,000-Motorcyclists-Ride Through DC To Honor POW's On Memorial Day Weekend Not one violent act or anything burned and looted. These guys and ladies actually do a lot year round to help people.

Six-Year-Old Son of Fallen Soldier Meets President Trump on Memorial Day Christian Jacobs, the six-year-old son of a fallen United States marine, met President Trump in Arlington National Cemetery on Monday, surprising the grateful President and showing him photos of his late father. Speaking with Fox and Friends, the young boy and his mother discussed the impromptu meeting with President Trump, who was visiting the national cemetery to deliver a Memorial Day address.

Congresswoman Martha McSally participated in Memorial Services in Sierra Vista and Bisbee.

McCain’s Shamelessness Rears Its Ugly Head….Again John McCain steps up criticism of Pres. Trump in Australia What’s more pathetic than a bumbling, failed presidential candidate going abroad to denigrate and undermine the current U.S. President — four months into his presidency? Not much. It appears nothing keeps the perpetually aggrieved John McCain from behaving reprehensibly. Undercutting President Trump has become McCain’s calling card.

What McCain-Said-About Russia And ISIS-Will-Make-Say...WTF? …Yet ANOTHER argument in favor of term limits. There are RINOs… and then there is McCain. It makes you wonder if this man still fit to drive, let alone make policy.

McCain-Continues-Spout-Nonsense-Says-Russia-DangerousJohn McCain is absolutely no fan of President Trump, that is for certain, but the lengths at which the aging Senator is willing to go to prove it are absolutely incredible.

President Trump on Tuesday called for the Senate to end the filibuster and allow legislation to pass with a simple majority, saying it would allow his agenda to pass “fast and easy.” “The U.S. Senate should switch to 51 votes, immediately, and get Healthcare and TAX CUTS approved, fast and easy. Dems would do it, no doubt!” Trump tweeted. Read the full story here

Activist Stephen Sivigliano: To quote Rush Limbaugh, "Most millennials couldn't find the world on a map."  I would take that one step further and say they couldn't find the world on a globe.  That disgusting AARP (actually CRAP) commercial of a guy interviewing a couple over 50, and he says that with the proposed healthcare bill, their premium would go up five times, and with pre-conditions, it would cost thousands more.  Although I'm disgusted with AARP (CRAP), it's no surprise, after all, they are very philanthropic, why, they are even involved with “klanned parenthoodlums.”  They then ask you to call Sen. Jeff Flake and demand he vote no on the upcoming bill.  He probably will anyway, since he's as big a flake as his name.  He's the clone of John McCain, like Degette is the clone of Shroeder.

CONGRESSIONAL STATEMENTS/ACTION

(300 word limit. If statements exceed the limit, it will be edited)

Congressman Trent Franks: 122 Members of Congress are urging the Prime Minister of Ethiopia to reconsider his April 21st decision to suspend international adoptions.  The order has left more than 200 U.S. families, and the Ethiopian children they are trying to bring home, in a heartbreaking limbo. In a bipartisan - and bicameral - letter to Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, the 47 Senators and 75 members of the House of Representatives said: “While we respect your government’s decisions regarding future adoption policy in Ethiopia, we ask for your help in resolving expeditiously cases that were already underway on April 21.  We are concerned that a failure to work with us to help these children join their adoptive families could have a negative impact on the relationship between our two governments.” The group of lawmakers is particularly concerned about approximately 30 adoptions that have already been finalized but, because of the order, the parents are unable to obtain the final paperwork, or “vitals”, necessary to bring their legally-adopted children home.  The government of Ethiopia has provided the adoptive parents no legal justification for the delays, which have had an adverse effect on the children: “In many cases, children and families have already initiated the emotional bonding and attachment process.  We fear breaking these attachments by delaying these adoptions may be detrimental to the children and adoptive families involved.  Our constituents want to provide loving, safe families to those in need and simply wish to bring their adopted children home in a timely fashion and in accordance with the law.” The letter was led by Senator Todd Young (R-IN) and the co-chairs of the Senate’s Adoption Caucus, Senators Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), as well as Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) and Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D-MI). Full text of the letter found here.

Congresswoman Martha McSally: This March it was discovered that members of the military were posting nude, intimate photos of women as well as personal information without their consent or knowledge. Only 81 days after this was uncovered, the House swiftly and decisively took action to crack down on non-consensual pornography in the military by voting for my bill, the PRIVATE Act. This bill will define when private photo sharing is a military criminal act—which is not clear in current law--giving the military a sharper tool to prosecute these perpetrators. The measure—introduced just last month, has broad bipartisan support with over 100 cosponsors and passed by a vote of 418-0. Passage of the PRIVATE Act was covered by the Hill, NBC News, the Washington Post, CNN, the New York Magazine, IJR, and the Washington Examiner.

Congresswoman Martha McSally: As reported by USA TODAY, the Department of Homeland Security released a report last week revealing that nearly 740,000 people overstayed their visa at some point in 2016, and close to 630,000 of them were still in the country at the end of last year. That’s twice as many overstays as people apprehended at the land border. I led a hearing to evaluate what DHS is doing to mitigate this national security threat. Border security requires a focus on both problems: illicit traffic that crosses the land border and the growing problem of visa overstays. Click HERE to read Cronkite's coverage of the hearing.

Sen John McCain: “Throughout our history, we have always asked the few to protect the many… in order that the rest of us – the vast majority – can live in a free and prosperous society... I would like to say to all of our former service members… and our service members – thanks for serving. And for all of our other citizens, I’d like say thank you for your honoring those who have served and sacrificed. I believe that it’s only in America where we do such things to such a degree and it makes me proud to be an American.”

CANDIDATE STATEMENTS

300 word limit. If statements exceed the limit, it will be edited.

US Senate candidate Kelli Ward: Arizona's Sanctuary Senator Jeff Flake is having a tough time with the people of Arizona. Democrats don't like him, Republicans don't like him, and Trump voters despise and distrust him. The only people who seem to support him are establishment elitists like Mitt Romney. Both Romney and Flake supported the pitiful presidential spoiler campaign of Evan McMullin. Romney is visiting Arizona this week to shill for Flake. Based on the incessant emails the Flake campaign has been sending out, the people of Arizona aren't all that fond of Romney anymore. Flake hopes to keep his seat in the Senate by using all the special interest money he can get his hands on to dominate the airways. We cannot let that happen.   As we approach the end of the month, we need your financial support. contribution of whatever you can afford or even setting up a monthly contribution to help us win the next electoral battle between "We the People" and the Swamp.

Team McSally for Congress : Today is Memorial Day - a day that we, as a nation, we remember those who have died serving in our armed forces. As a combat veteran who served six tours of duty in her 26 years of service in the Air Force, today has a special meaning for Martha. Those of us who work with her know how much her years of service shaped her, and we know that today she is reminded of the men and women she called friends who died in service to this country. Their lives were given in the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe and free. Please join us today in taking a moment to reflect on the heavy cost of our freedoms. Join us in saying a prayer for children, parents, spouses, and all those left behind by those Americans killed in the line of duty. Today we remember the freedoms we hold so dear are not free -- that they have been bought by men and women who paid the ultimate price. We wish you not a happy Memorial Day, but a meaningful one.

The First Official Memorial Day observation (then called Decoration Day) was held on May 30, 1868 at the former mansion of Robert E. Lee in Read More...

President Trump spoke at an observance program and participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier yesterday morning.

If You See A Coin On A Headstone; Do Not Touch Or Pick It Up ... Here's Why: Leaving a penny on the gravestone means that you paid your solider friend a visit.A nickel means that you and your fallen soldier buddy both went to the same boot camp or other military training course together. If you were lucky enough to have served with the soldier, then you leave a dime. A quarter is means that you were there when that soldier died.

IN FLANDERS FIELDS
By Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead: Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved: and now we lie
In Flanders fields!
Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw
The torch: be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Composed at the battlefront on May 3, 1915 

during the second battle of Ypres, Belgium

Zack Taylor, Chairman and Border Security Expert - National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers: Today, Memorial Day 2017, Americans need to understand exactly what is happening in the world and especially in America right before our eyes. Millions of Americans have fought and died and continue to do so to protect the America that was founded on the U.S. Constitution.  That their sacrifice must not have been in vain every American must read and understand the-forgotten-slaughters-of-the-innocents by Michele Malkin and especially the Comments Section by our own retired Border Patrol Officer John Slagle. There is no force greater in a free society than the truth and that is being cleverly concealed with the obvious purpose of fundamentally transforming America. This is a fight to be won by American Citizens at home in support of our military.  We must not fail them. Taylor is a GOP PC and State Committeeman.

Proclamation to Reclaim Memorial Day www.americasmightywarriors.org

Don Turner, President NV Firearms Action PAC: This Memorial Day, we remember the brave individuals who fought for our rights, and we thank those who continue to fight for our liberties today. Without their sacrifices, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the rights and freedom we have in this great country. I’d like to ask you to take a moment today to reflect on the sacrifices made by our service men and women in the protection our God-given freedoms, and honor those in your life. This is a day beyond remembering, but celebrating the lives of those who gave their all, paying the ultimate price for you and me. As they fought down in the trenches, we also must take up the fight here at home in preserving our Second Amendment rights. We must equip ourselves with the right gear in order to move forward toward victory. Thank you for your continued support, which has helped keep our efforts alive. As we fight, we honor our armed forces and defend the freedoms they so tirelessly fought for. Turner is a retired AZ Game and Fish Dept Law Enforcement Officer and firearms expert.

LD4 PC Richard Hopkins: New County Recorder Adrian Fontes plans to do away with ID at the polls.  By making the 2017 November elections an all mail election (as a test for the 2018 elections), he is doing away with polls and having replacement ballot centers.  One can obtain a ballot by inputting the name, DOB, and social security/voter registration number in a computer with no verification from poll workers.  It then prints a replacement ballot and envelope.  The second part of this is once the ballot envelope is signed and the ballot handed to the person, they are free to leave, taking their unmarked ballot out of the ballot center to sell to those waiting for him outside.  Promotional material he has sent out indicates the goal is to do away with ID at the polls.  Suggest that your county supervisor be contacted and urged not to fund this.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis showed a bit of what led to his “Mad Dog” moniker during a CBS News interview that aired on “Face the Nation” Sunday. After discussing a string of threats facing the United States, host John Dickerson asked the former Marine Corps general what kept him awake at night. “Nothing,” Mattis replied without hesitating so much as a second. “I keep other people awake at night.” best-response-ever: CBS-news-asks-‘mad-dog-mattis’ what -keeps-him awake at night

What McCain-Said-About Russia And ISIS-Will-Make-Say...WTF? Yet ANOTHER argument in favor of term limits. There are RINOs… and then there is McCain. It makes you wonder if this man still fit to drive, let alone make policy.

McCain-Continues-Spout-Nonsense-Says-Russia-Dangerous …John McCain is absolutely no fan of President Trump, that is for certain, but the lengths at which the aging Senator is willing to go to prove it are absolutely incredible. From the start of the 2016 election, John McCain has been standing up to fight Donald Trump every step of the way.  For his part, Trump has done some fighting back, calling into question the famed POW’s service record in an unseemly attack on the veteran and politician.  The tiff hasn’t simmered at all since President Trump was sworn in back in January either, with McCain consistently disagreeing with the President on nearly every possible issue. McCain, for what it’s worth, has a bit of a reputation for his “evolving” views; a fact evidenced by nearly every accusation against him during his unfruitful presidential campaign of 2008 in which he was constantly harassed for his flip-flopping ways. Now, the longtime Senator has more absurdity to spout in the face of the current Commander in Chief.  His latest theory is that Russia and Vladimir Putin are more dangerous to the U.S.A. than ISIS.

Sen John McCain: “Throughout our history, we have always asked the few to protect the many… in order that the rest of us – the vast majority – can live in a free and prosperous society... I would like to say to all of our former service members… and our service members – thanks for serving. And for all of our other citizens, I’d like say thank you for your honoring those who have served and sacrificed. I believe that it’s only in America where we do such things to such a degree and it makes me proud to be an American.”

Team McSally for Congress : Today is Memorial Day - a day that we, as a nation, we remember those who have died serving in our armed forces. As a combat veteran who served six tours of duty in her 26 years of service in the Air Force, today has a special meaning for Martha. Those of us who work with her know how much her years of service shaped her, and we know that today she is reminded of the men and women she called friends who died in service to this country. Their lives were given in the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe and free. Please join us today in taking a moment to reflect on the heavy cost of our freedoms. Join us in saying a prayer for children, parents, spouses, and all those left behind by those Americans killed in the line of duty. Today we remember the freedoms we hold so dear are not free -- that they have been bought by men and women who paid the ultimate price. We wish you not a happy Memorial Day, but a meaningful one.
