8-29-17 Briefs

Republican Brief


IMG_3480The Main Stream Media Reported that the Aug 22 Trump Rally in Phoenix as not well attended, however, Republicans in attendance have photos that prove the room was overflowing. Alex Meluskey, who stands 6 foot, 5 inches in his boots took this photo from top row, center of the bleachers. He says the room became more crowded as President Trumps speech went on. Meluskey notes, “ There was a little room on the left, but it was so crowed at the doors and right, that people didn’t know there was a little room still on the left. The people who left, left because it was too crowded, they felt ill.” Photo courtesy of Alex Meluskey.

Yavapai County State Committeeman/PC Laramer G. Mace: I received an rather long email from Michael Burke explaining why he is opposed to the Lines recall. He is entitled to his opinion. My question is, how did he get my email address? Since the by-laws committee cannot get email addresses of its members and I am sure if I asked AZGOP for the emails of all the state committeemen, they would be justified in declining the information. That just leaves one conclusion. AZGOP aka Lines gave the email addresses to Burke as a loyal establishment hack. If I am wrong, I apologize, but what other conclusion can I make? Editor’s Note: You aren’t the only one questioning how Burke of Pinal County obtained Maricopa County state committee/pc e-mails when state committee/precinct committeeman can’t get the lists from their legislative districts.

Editor’s Note: Please keep opinion pieces to 400 words.

Brian Reilly, Former LD22PC: Thanks to Connie Uribe, Richard Mack and Francine Romesburg for their comments in 8-27-17-briefs . I’ve never met Connie, I do know Richard and I’ve enjoyed speaking with Francine and experienced the courtesy that she has shown to me at her Tea Party meetings. I’d like to comment about one of the common points that all three of their letters to Briefs mentioned. They bring up the position that former Sheriff Joe Arpaio was denied justice when he was “denied” a jury trial for the misdemeanor crime that he (allegedly) committed. Did any of you attend the Arpaio civil contempt hearings in 2015, or the Arpaio criminal trial in 2017? I attended because I wanted to see the unfiltered events as they happened. From the March 1, 2017, Court Order for a Bench Trial: “At the January 25, 2017 argument, Defendant [Arpaio] through his counsel stated ‘Judge if the question you posed to me was if it goes jury, all bets are off, if it goes Court its capped [at 6 months], I would vote court.’” Sheriff Joe Arpaio, through his attorney, CHOSE to go with a bench trial. Arpaio made the CHOICE to limit his penalty exposure. The same order states, “[T]he Court has found no precedent for granting a jury trial for a charge of criminal contempt when the possible sentence was limited to a maximum of six months in prison.” USA-v-Arpaio-Bench-Trial President Trump bought into the same jury trial argument. Trump’s action was to offer a pardon to a man who denies his guilt, and has shown no remorse for his actions. Trump’s pardon shows that he will protect his political friends but not the people who were victims of Arpaio’s abusive tactics. Arpaio will hold a press conference Monday to tell us how he was wronged by the court. This hardly sounds like a man who is remorseful and deserving of a pardon.

PC Francine Romesburg Response To Bill Reilly: Quick point, unless you are calling Sheriff Richard Mack and myself (I don’t know Connie Uribe) part of Team Arpaio, I posted my points from what I know to be a right thing to do, meeting with Sheriff Joe Arpaio, knowing the justice system, how it works and how others have been pardoned for more than misdemeanors over a number of years.  Sheriff Joe deserves the same courtesy.  I sent my post to a few people asking for their input including Sheriff Mack whom Dave & I know very well.  Mack’s post on Frosty’s Briefs was purely straight from Mack’s heart and knowledge of the law.  Mack is a Constitutional Sheriff. Mack’s comments, as others I’ve seen are straight from the heart.  Since Mack has dealt with the Federal Gov’t (‘Prince vs Mack’) he knows the ins and outs of things.  No one tells Mack what to think or do.  Since you know Mack, you know he doesn’t mince any words, he tells it like it is and tells the truth.  So other than Connie whom I do not know, there are 2 of us who made comments that are strictly from our hearts, the truth of the situation, and the law and what is the right thing to do especially in regards to a ‘misdeamor’.  This should have gone to a jury trial according to the US Constitution.  Period end of statement.  No ifs, no buts, no nothing.  Everyone deserves a jury trial of their peers according to the US Constitution.  The Fed Gov’t didn’t want that.  Pure and simple.  They wanted to make an example of Arpaio.  The man is 85 yrs old.  Mack says it very well in his statement.
