REPUBLICAN BRIEFS

Campaign-Committees-Owe-Arizona-Taxpayers-Money-State-Officials-Say   What become of the compliance training classes at AZGOP?

The MCRC Executive Guidance Committee (EGC) monthly meeting is scheduled at 7 pm., Tues., Sept 5 at AZGOP HQ, 3501 N 24th St, Phoenix.

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

LD22 PC Jane Schutte: Thank you for your comments on defeating Flake.  I said sometime back that when we run multiple candidates to UNSEAT the incumbent the incumbent wins.

PC Jan Martinson: In my area, there is talk of a re-call for McCain. He is such a RINO. He is mad that Trump won the Presidency, and he didn't! He doesn't care a damn about our people. God is judging him.

Arizona State Sen Bob Thorpe: McCain-Needs-To-Start-Showing-My-Constituents-More-Respect On August 26, Sen. John McCain once again grabbed an opportunity to criticize many of my Arizona constituents and our nation's leader, President Trump. McCain is angry that Trump, just like President Obama before him, exercised his constitutional power in granting executive clemency to former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Arizona's senior senator appears to have forgotten Obama's record-breaking 1,927 acts of clemency. He also seems to have ignored the fact that Arpaio was convicted for merely following state and federal laws when he turned illegal immigrants over to federal officials.

LD22 State Committeeman/PC Lori Hack: Dr. Kelli Ward IS the one good, strong conservative Republican candidate who IS currently taking on #sanctuaryFlake in 2018.  "Incumbent Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is underwater badly in his home state, with just 21 percent of Arizona Republicans supporting him for reelection against challenger Dr. Kelli Ward—who gets 47 percent support—per a new poll from JMC Analytics. The poll, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its public release by JMC Analytics’ John Couvillon, shows Flake in almost irreparable shape ahead of his reelection bid in 2018. That an incumbent U.S. Senator like Flake could be polling as low as 21 percent in his own primary, while a challenger like Ward has pulled 26 points ahead of him at 47 percent, is almost unthinkable with nearly a full year to go until the August 2018 primary. Three percent of the electorate said they would vote for Nicholas Tutora, another candidate, and 29 percent are undecided, when asked which candidate they would vote for between Ward, Flake, and Tutora."jeff-flake-underwater-poll-shows-kelli-ward-opening-up-more-than-25-point-lead-in-senate-race-with-year-to-go

US Senate candidate Dr Kelli Ward: You are exactly right about uniting to win. I'd love to have you on Team Ward. Editor’s Note: In fairness to all candidates, I do not join anyone’s campaign, nor do I endorse candidates. – ft

Yavapai County PC Rick Hennessey: The battle to remove AZGOP Chairman Jonathan Lines is not over. I intend to continue this movement to remove Lines from office because he is unworthy to remain as the AZGOP Chairman. As expected, the leadership of the conservative movement in our state has folded like a bad hand of cards because they have NO BACKBONE! Jim O’Connor and AzRA talk a great game but when the chips are down they run like scared school girls. Marianne Ferrari (removal movement spokesman) did her best with little help and I commend her for her hard work. Anyone who has the guts to stand up and fight, feel free to contact me at 928-499-9342 rickhe1@msn.com

Former Yavapai County Chairman Jim Dutton to Yavapai County PC Rick Hennessey: You are my friend and a solid patriot, however you are wrong about AZRA and Jim O'Connor. The hard truth is, that in order to do what Marianne Ferrari and all of us who signed petitions were trying to do, REQUIRES a 2/3 vote of the membership to accomplish. Marianne admitted that, when she said we would need at least 500 signatures in order to do this.  The real number is 826 signatures IF all the State Committeemen showed up in person or via proxies. To insinuate that all the people pointing out the "doomed" mission are traitors, is like blaming the doctor for telling you of a serious infection and wanting to administer treatment. O'Connor and Gabby Mercer haven't given up on removing Lines any more than you or I have.  They know the current plan is not going to work no matter how hard we try - the numbers are not there. This recall effort doesn't have 1/3 of the members behind it.  Truth is, we just barely had 1/5 of the members committed to it.  Pointing this out isn't being a traitor, it is being a realist and strategist.  I am sure the captain of the Titanic was seriously wishing he had listened to the concerns of his crew members as his ship was sinking but it was too late.  My point being, that sometimes we become so passionate about a cause that we fail to see any of the surrounding circumstances.  This is why Presidents have cabinets, Generals have advisors and CEOs have a board of directors.  They all need people advising them, pointing out the pitfalls and possible moves by the opposition.  Rick, I believe that everyone is still on board for removing Lines, we just need to regroup and take a more effective approach, to ensure that we have the 2/3 vote necessary to accomplish the task. We had one meeting in Chino Valley for all of Yavapai County and it was very productive, however, with more time, we can have meetings in different locations that will be just as productive. I suggest you stop all the inflammatory rhetoric and help by leading the charge here in Yavapai County to remove Jonathan Lines at the January meeting.  We all want to win this and we CAN win which would be the best thing, not only for the party, but to also honor Marianne's hard work in getting this initiative off the ground. Please take a few minutes and consider what I am saying.

LD24 PC Tristan Manos on the buzz going around about President Donald Trump ending DACA: "We remember the President saying he's all for 'Dreamers': as in American Citizen Dreamers seeking The American Dream (1 example: VIDEO: 2/15/16). Because this patriotic President keeps promoting and generating more and more momentum for 'Make America Great Again, America 1st, and Restoring The Rule of Law,' this move to end DACA should be no surprise to anyone actually paying attention. Same point goes for giving in-state tuition for so-called 'dreamers.' Please excuse me for also making this personal: I attended Ohio State while a Pennsylvania resident. A dreamer myself, I was a Citizen of the State of PA and the U.S. seeking 'The American Dream,' and I was required to pay out-of-state tuition. There's millions upon millions of Americans just the same, past, present, and future. Also, one may wonder how online, Internet-based college and university degree programs may factor into tuition costs as may relate to citizenship and residency status. Back to DACA: end DACA now. First of all, it's unconstitutional. Essentially, it's a de facto amnesty. Furthermore, DACA is extremely disrespectful, dishonorable, and damaging—to the point of being insulting, offensive, and even immoral—to America's own American Citizens (and, after that, to people who follow the law (imagine that) to visit America, work in America, and immigrate to America). Yes, Americans are among the most compassionate in all of the world. However, America's first priority must be compassion for its own people: American Citizens. 'America 1st' means just that: American Citizens 1st. Is it going to be 'We The People' (American Citizens of the United States of America), or what?" Contact: tristanmanos2@gmail.com

Some are on the list of the most hated PCs in the AZGOP…” Continued at Anything but United4Victory

Petition: Demanding Congress-Takes-Measures-To-Support-Sheriff-Joe-Arpaio/ The drama surrounding President Trump’s pardon of former Sheriff Joe Arpaio is far from resolved. The latest chapter comes as Arpaio’s legal teams calls for a dismissal of his conviction. The judge hearing the case has halted the sentencing proceeding in light of the pardon, but is not throwing out his conviction.
