Republican Briefs

Archie Dicksion, The Proxy Petition Spokesman, says the petition requesting that Arizona State Legislature “prohibit the use of proxies at political party votes, or limit their use to no more than two (2) proxies per carrier” is posted at http://bit.ly/2rZG2w8 for signature gathering purposes. Just filled it out and submit it to Dicksion electronically. Dicksion can also be reached at 949-233-0009.

LD1 Chairman Cathy Schwanke has announced that last night LD1 passed a “Resolution For Action” as the results of disapproval stemming “ from congress voting many times for Obamacare repeal under Pres. Obama but lack the same will under Pres. Trump. We want them, especially our senators, to keep their promises regarding health care total repeal, the border wall, and tax cuts. Some are, but most are not. We are thankful for Freedom Caucus members striving for free market principles but are dismayed at senate members who answer to the ‘donor class’ over wishes of constituents.”

This resolution was passed unanimously by the LD1 Republican Committee (Maricopa County) at their monthly meeting July 24, 2017:

Resolution For Action

      WHEREAS, the members of LD1 have worked hard for the last 10 years to reclaim the House, the Senate and the White House; and

     WHEREAS, we deserve to have our Representatives do the will of the people and not special interests, while not exempting themselves and their staff from the laws they pass on us; and

     WHEREAS, The Senate and House have failed to fulfill promises made to the American people regarding repealing Obamacare, passing tax relief legislation, funding and building a wall on the Mexican Border; now, therefore be it

     RESOLVED, that, the LD1 Republican Committee in Maricopa County do strongly disapprove of the job performance of the Republican U.S. Senators and Representatives who are not fulfilling these promises and urge them to pass Obamacare (ACA) total repeal, fund and build the border wall, and pass tax relief and tax code simplification.

    Respectfully brought forth by the Republican Precinct Committeemen of LD1.

Senator McCain Looks Forward to returning to the United States Senate tomorrow to continue working on important legislation, including health care reform, the National Defense Authorization Act, and new sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea,” according McCain’s spokesman Julie Tarallo

Former Maricopa County GOP Chair Lyle Tuttle to AZGOP Chairman Jonathan Lines: Last month at our regular LD meeting, our Chairman gave a training session using a power point presentation provided by either the county or the AZGOP. One of the points brought out in that presentation was to encourage PC's to get to know their precinct and for the residents of their precincts to get to know them. One of the suggestions made was for PC's to either make or purchase business cards with their contact information contained thereon. So it is the position of the GOP to share this information with people they most likely do not know BUT they refuse to share this same information with the other PC's in their same LD? Not only does my LD Chair claim she has no such list, but also that she has no list of State Committeemen!! Even our State Secretary tells me that SHE has no list, either!! Why? I hope you can enlighten these folks to the fact that sharing information is the one of the best ways to build a strong, cohesive cadre of Republicans? What are they afraid of??? Are they POWER MAD??

Activist Lolly Hathhorn: “It seems as if more and more SCs and PCs are coming out in the open about the recall.  Sure feels good to know that most of us are paying attention to what is going on with the shenanigans of the AZGOP!  I need for someone to let me (and everyone else) know if regular registered Republicans can get some sort of signature petition going for this recall.  If so, could you post it on the Briefs so that we can get to work?  Let’s make this the most massive signature gathering ever!  Let’s clean house and get the show on the road.  The mid-term elections are coming up and this mess needs to be cleared up ASAP!  Let’s help President TRUMP ‘Make America Great Again’”.  Let’s clean house here in Arizona! Editor’s Note: Recall Lines spokesman Marianne Ferraro is coordinating all Remove Lines effortss. Contact her at advocacy@indepthcritique.com Briefs will continue to post Ferraro’s  progress. - ft

PC/State Committeeman Art Olivas: It's OK' to ask as you can get a lot of information. Why do I say this! Because just this week, I have been asked by three PCs and one State PC what do I think about Congressman Paul Gosar! I like others I don't know much about him. He has been reelected four times. I have researched him from time to time and found nothing dramatic that stands out. Where he stands on most issues who knows! The Democrats or RINOs have not come after him, like they came after Sheriff Joe or our President Donald Trump or anybody that is a true Grass root conservative for that matter. My best advice to them is to read Frosty's Briefs and learn the truth, as Frosty will not stand for any B---S--- like LINES' so call “Official” Republican piece trash. These are my words and I believe everyone them. PS: We need to help Gabby S. Mercer get her info.  Editor’s Note: Go to Gosar’ official web site at https://gosar.house.gov/ to see what he’s been doing for Arizona. Click on his press release or newsletter section to get updated on his activities.- ft

AZGOP Communications Director Torunn Sinclair: Our GOP Data Center Trainings are going well! To date, the Arizona Republican Party has held 16 trainings, and trained more than 400 PCs. We're crisscrossing the state training Republicans -- from 80 activists in Yavapai County, to training LD 23 Chairwoman Nancy Ordowski in Scottsdale, to 20 activists in Tucson this weekend, including PC John Backer -- our team is here to help and we're glad everyone is taking advantage of our resources. Need to be trained? Shoot Kyle Pierce an email at Kyle.Pierce@azgop.org

AzRA President Jim O’Connor: Arizona Republican Assembly aka AZRA, is a private organization unbound by state statutes or AZGOP's archaic Bylaws.  We have been very busy since electing a new Executive Committee in May, 2017. The first order of business was to update the Bylaws which were adopted at the May Membership Convention.  Day to day business will be covered under the Procedures Manual.  We've also been taking a look at our chapters, where they are located and focusing on getting all chapters to be as productive as possible prior to the upcoming election season in 2018... laying the groundwork for action in 2018. Along those lines, new chapters are forming in Navajo County, Yuma County, East Mesa, Gold Canyon, San Tan Valley and the Tucson area.  Any conservative Republican who agrees with the pledge that is part of the membership form and understands that Arizona is in need of strong Republican leadership based on the U.S. Constitution, the state Constitution and the party platform is welcome to apply to join AZRA to become part of one of our chapters.  If there is not a chapter in your area, contact us to see if one is forming.  We intend to form as many chapters across Arizona as we can in order to be influential in Arizona Republican politics. There is much to do to right the ship of state in Arizona Republican politics and it will take engaged and committed activists to get the job done.  Please contact us at azrepublicanassembly1@zoho.com to join a chapter or to get more information.  Constitutional precinct committeemen and all committed conservative Republicans are welcome!

"Fake Cruz Rhymes With Fake News": LD24PC Tristan Manos observes the ongoing "Ted Cruz for this [1], that, or the other high office" buzz. Reflecting upon the past, here's an important ("Drain The Swamp") reality check going forward. This is The United States of America. "We The People" go by the U.S. Constitution. Ted Cruz freely, openly, and proudly admits to being born in a FOREIGN nation to a FOREIGN national father (furthermore, Ted officially renounced his Canadian citizenship in May, 2014, after becoming "U.S. Senator" in January, 2013). The same Ted Cruz pretended to be a constitutional candidate for President and Commander-in-chief (POTUS/CINC). The RNC permitted this constitutional violation. The AZGOP and MCRC also permitted it, some of the top officials therein (both past and present) even going so far as to promoting and backing this unconstitutional candidate. Also included are endorsements by multiple AZGOP state legislators, multiple AZGOP members of the U.S. House (quirky Senate positions), NFRA (AZRA's national headquarters), Tea Party Patriots, and more. _Briefs'_ 300-word max is way too short for naming names. The bizarre idea of Ted Cruz in higher office, especially U.S. Attorney General, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, or anything related to rightly understanding the original meaning of the U.S. Constitution (the same Constitution he violated), is more than misguided: it's an extremely dangerous threat to The Republic. Coincidentally, the 1 and only Republican candidate for POTUS/CINC who called attention to this throughout the "Race for President" is now The REAL POTUS/CINC (DJT) [2]. "America 1st" for POTUS/CINC really means something. Realizing exactly what it means, The Founding Fathers and Framers wrote it right into the Constitution: USC AIIS1C5's "natural born Citizen [3]" (born in AMERICA to AMERICAN parents, possessing corresponding natural born allegiance). "Keep The Republic" means "Keep The Constitution." Contact: tristanmanos2@gmail.com

Congressional Western Caucus Chairman Paul A. Gosar after the Trump Administration announced a proposed rule to rescind a duplicative and job-killing Obama Administration Bureau of Land Management (BLM) rule which sought to regulate hydraulic fracturing on public and tribal lands: “Unlike the previous administration, President Trump and Secretary Zinke understand that unconstitutional regulations that seize authority from states, hamper responsible energy development, harm our economy and ignore the voices of local communities are not in our best interest,” said Gosar. “The Obama Administration continuously pandered to extremist groups, enacting senseless regulations which were not based on science that punished job creators in the process. BLM’s duplicative fracking rule was no exception. Scrapping this unnecessary Washington mandate is a major victory for the West and something Western Caucus members have been leading the charge on for years. I applaud the Trump Administration and the Department of Interior for continuing to deliver on our agenda."

Congressional Western Caucus Chairman Paul A. Gosar after the United States Senate voted 53-43 to confirm David Bernhardt as the next Deputy Secretary of the Interior:

Deputy Secretary Bernhardt knows how to get things done,” said Gosar. “A principled leader who also understands Western issues and the significant challenges facing the Department, his confirmation today is a major victory for Interior, and by extension for the American people. He is eminently qualified for the position and will be an outstanding second-in-command. I look forward to working with him closely on pressing issues facing Arizona and the nation.”
