REPUBLICAN BRIEFS

Conservative-Leaders-To-McConnell: Its-Time-For-You-To-Go 2017 has been a disappointing year for the millions of Americans who fully expected, and had every right to expect real change in Washington. Republicans were given full control of the federal government. They – you – have done nothing. Worse, it is painfully clear that you intend to do nothing because, as is most apparent, you had no intention of honoring your solemn commitments to the American people. You were not going to “drain the swamp.” You are the swamp.

      You and the rest of your leadership team were given the majority because you pledged to stop the steady flow of illegal immigration. You’ve done nothing. You pledged to reduce the size of this oppressive federal government. You have done nothing. You pledged to reduce, and ultimately eliminate the out-of-control deficit spending that is bankrupting America. You have done nothing. You promised to repeal Obamacare, “root and branch.” You’ve done nothing. You promised tax reform. You’ve done nothing. You don’t even show up for work.

     While your attacks on those within the Republican Party who were attempting to keep the GOP’s promises in the era of President Obama are now legendary, your current failure to deliver on the highest priority commitments to the American people is nothing short of shocking.

      Perhaps the greatest betrayal – and that is what it is – is your failure to repeal Obamacare, the single most devastating piece of legislation against freedom ever crafted. Every single Republican in federal office today is there because of the pledge to end this horror. We are now in October of 2017. The Republicans control the White House, the House of Representatives, and the Senate. The GOP controls it all, thanks to that commitment.

      President Trump and the House of Representatives have done their part. You sank it all. President Trump reasonably asked when he arrived in the White House “Where is the bill?” After seven long years, you didn’t have a bill ready to go. You’d scheduled no committee hearings when you knew some in your caucus would not tolerate a bill without hearings. You had no plan at all.

     America has not forgotten that Obamacare does not apply to you. You and your leadership team saw to that, even when far more ethical members of Congress tried to change that slippery exemption. That is not “leadership.” That’s cronyism, and precisely why the American people want the swamp drained…See More

Vietnam Veteran Robert Stapleton was living quietly on an Arizona farm for more than 30 years, working as a blacksmith, raising horses, and doing odd jobs. That was until he got caught up in a city court system where political power can tip the scales of justice toward the politically connected. Stapleton’s Story Is The Subject Of Goldwater Institute National Investigative Reporter Mark Flatten’s New Report, the second in a series about Arizona’s city court system, where unelected judges answerable only to the city councils who appoint them can run roughshod over individual rights.

Backstabber McCain’s Latest Move Against Trump Proves He’s Teamed With Democrats John McCain loathes Donald Trump. The Arizona senator wouldn’t even vote for Trump on election day last year, deciding to go for fellow Never Trumper Lindsey Graham, the senator from South Carolina. Twice this year alone McCain has backstabbed Americans by killing Obamacare repeals, but he’s not done just yet. Now, McCain is looking to halt the president’s massive tax cut plan, per Washington Post: Arizona Republican, who is fighting a public battle with brain cancer, will be among his party’s most closely watched as the year winds down and the tax debate gears up. Yet over his decades in public life, McCain has traced a zigzagging line on the subject, leaving little clear indication of how he’ll approach a potentially decisive vote. A look at the senator’s record on taxes shows that three things seem most important to him: public debate, some help for the middle class, and not exploding the deficit.

The AZ GOP Will Host A Townhall Meeting, featuring Congressman Andy Biggs and AZGOP Chairman Jonathon Lines, focusing on tax reform at 5:30 pm., Mon, Oct 16 at Arizona Republican Party headquarters 3501 N 24th St, Phoenix, AZ 85016. RSVP to alex.melendez@azgop.org

LD18 PC Larry Hilliard: So, I'm confused. Harvey Weinstein contributed more than $20,000 to Clinton's campaigns according to the Center for Responsive Politics. I have to wonder if he also donated to the Clinton Foundation. Hillary Clinton told CNN's Fareed Zakaria, "What my former colleagues are saying is they're going to donate it to charity, and of course I will do that. I give 10% of my income to charity every year, and this will be part of that. There's no doubt about it." Can she legally transfer those donations from her campaign account(s) (and possibly the Clinton Foundation) to her personal account and use the funds to make charitable donations? And exactly what does she mean that they will be part of the 10% of her income that she gives to charity every year? Will the Weinstein donations be in addition to the normal 10% or just part of the 10% she donates to charity every year?

Congressman Trent Franks after EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt provided a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking which will effectively cancel the Obama Administration’s ‘Clean Power Plan’: “The Clean Power Plan made energy expensive, causing average Americans to pay more for less power. Why do government agencies feel the need to squeeze regular American consumers to push their scientifically unproven climate change agenda? Moreover, the Clean Power Plan has been challenged in the Supreme Court as being unconstitutional and unlawful. The Trump administration is right to correct the previous administration’s overreach.” Full statement HERE.   

Tea Party Patriots Co-founder Jenny Beth Martin yesterday after President Trump’s speech laying out his comprehensive Iran strategy. Tea Party Patriots and our supporters across the country applaud President Trump’s comprehensive Iran strategy laid out in his speech today, and for bucking the DC Establishment and keeping his promise to decertify the terrible nuclear deal with Iran. We were proud to stand in front of the U.S. Capitol, with thousands of grassroots activists in 2015, and with then-candidate Donald Trump, to call on Congress to oppose this terrible deal with Iran that endangers our national security and emboldens a rogue state.  With today’s announcement, President Trump has shown once again he is a rare type of leader in our nation’s capital, one who is determined to keep the promises he made to the American people, no matter what the so-called ‘experts’ in Washington say. He listens to the people and keeps his word when he gives it. We look forward to working with the Trump Administration to spur Congress to take the next step and impose sanctions on Iran and any nation who continues to do business with them.”
