The Last Remaining Casualty in the war on coal has new life. Peabody confirmed that a 5 potential investors have expressed interest in pursuing an ownership position in the Navajo Generating Station for operation beyond 2019. The Navajo Generation Station is the largest coal fired power plant in the west, and has been hammered by the War on Coal over the past 8 years. It employs 770 people in the power plant and the coal mine, and supplies $151 million per year in economic benefits to Northern AZ. The Central AZ Project Water board, is part owner in the power plant with the USA, and still owes $369 million dollars on the plant. The plant owners including the US voted to close the plant or find new owners in the next 23 months. With any luck, we will find a new ownership group that can fight against the war on coal, and overcome the $12 billion in solar subsidies congress approved in 2015, Mark Lewis said.

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

Former Maricopa County Republican Chairman A J LaFaro: I checked and neither me nor my wife were registered to vote. We have been residents of Arizona since 1986 and have voted in EVERY election and via PEVL ever since it was started. https://recorder.maricopa.gov/earlyvotingballot/voterregistrationlookup.aspx I tried calling County Elections but all their telephone circuits were busy.  I then re-registered both me and my wife online. I called and filed a formal complaint with my County Supervisor.

Navajo County Republican Committee Chairman Steven Slaton: LD6 Sen Sylvia Allen; Conservative or RINO? Allen co-sponsors NPV- national popular vote-to get rid of the Electoral College. Then after pressure she voted for - as CO-Sponsor of this bill - before she voted against it. This bill was pushed by campaign manager Constantin Querard. Very disturbing Senator Allen!

     Allen voted for the amended HB 2184 to strip the Supt. Of Public Instructions authority and hand it over to the appointed czars on the board of education even after hearing citizens speak against it. After that failed to pass in the legislature she then voted for SB 1469 doing the same thing and the Governor signed it.

    Allen also voted to putting prop 123 on the ballot which took funds from the state trust which Treasurer Jeff DeWit had opposed. 

    Allen, during gathering of leaders from 22 states to recommend rules the first article V convention, wanted to ‘vet’ delegates so there wouldn’t be any disruptive delegates at the first Article V Convention. She was completely against AZRA doing that to weed out “RINO’S” at our Aug 3 NCRC meeting. This is where Allen called us “NAZI’S”. And Allen's husband called the AZRA guest speaker a Stupid B***h!! It appears Allen is now indulges in hypocrisy.

    Allen denies she had anything to do with the new Navajo County Republicans club, which confuses people. She arranged their meeting in her George Washington Academy Charter School. I sent their President a Cease and Desist order since they did not notify people - in their header of their agenda publication - that they are a club and not the official Republican Party. I’ll keep you posted of a possible law suit.

    Allen still has not demanded that our state Chairman Lines turn over records - required by state statues - to our elected party officers. ‘RINO’S” do not want to follow the RULE OF LAW when their interests are at stake.

    If a state senator or any representative don’t want to follow or support the Rule Of Law, States Statues, Or Even State Bylaws of political parties - then the people must demand they should resign!

PC Dan Schultz: U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton has ordered the Justice Department and the attorneys representing pardoned former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to appear before her at 10am, Wed, Oct. 4, in court to present oral arguments on whether his criminal conviction, set aside by President Trump, should be set aside.  The Justice Department filed briefs, as did the attorneys representing Sheriff Arpaio, arguing that, unquestionably, the presidential pardon sets aside the conviction.  Only “friend of the court” briefs have argued otherwise.  Would you be able to make the time to attend this history-making proceeding, and bring your children, in support of our former Sheriff?  Would it not be wonderful if the courtroom was full of supporters of Sheriff Joe Arpaio and that the overflow crowd out in the hallway was huge?  Hearing information: http://www2.azd.uscourts.gov/azd/callive.nsf/dazweb-view%20by%20judge  Please check the web site late in the afternoon the day before the hearing in case Judge Bolton cancels the hearing.  Please arrive at the door of the court house at least 30 minutes before the 10am starting time, as you will have to go through a metal detector.  The courtroom is at 401 W. Washington St., Phoenix, AZ  85003.  There is metered parking on the streets around the courthouse as well as public parking garages nearby. 

Brian Reilly, Former LD22PC: Jeff Lichter provided a laundry list of individuals “who questioned the…birth certificate of Barack Obama.” Truth is to be found in numbers? Lichter fails to include me as one of those who originally questioned the authenticity of the document. He also fails to mention that I was the one who developed the plan to request Sheriff Arpaio investigate the authenticity of the birth certificate. The Verification of Birth issued by the state of Hawaii answered my questions about the birth certificate. However, I do agree with Lichter’s comment, “It is up to readers to…do the research…” It’s also up to the people to counter what is false with truth. Justice Kennedy once wrote: “The remedy for speech that is false is speech that is true. This is the ordinary course in a free society. The response to the unreasoned is the rational; to the uninformed, the enlightened; to the straight-out lie, the simple truth.” The simple truth, in my opinion, is the birth certificate investigation became a political, dog and pony show in nature and ignored the Hawaii Verification of Birth, issued on May 22, 2012, to the Arizona Secretary of State, Ken Bennett. The investigation also ignored the fact that Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery quietly reviewed Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse “evidence” and determined it to be “speculation” and declined to act. On September 29, 2017, former Sheriff, Joe Arpaio appeared in Fresno, CA, and held a press conference. It appeared to be the beginning of Arpaio’s political comeback tour. NPR-KVPR reporter Jeffrey Hess brought up the former sheriff’s birth certificate investigation by asking Arpaio about the “probable cause” that convinced Arpaio to believe that the birth certificate is a fake. Arpaio said he’s not a computer guy, spoke about his flip phone, his Smith & Wesson gun and his Smith-Corona typewriter and then proclaimed there’s lots of probable cause that has determined the Obama birth certificate is a fake. Arpaio then mentioned forensic experts in Hawaii and in Italy who had allegedly determined the document to be a fake. The experts were Reed Hayes in Hawaii and ForLab Multimedia Forensics in Italy. Arpaio stated: “And both experts had testified in court, said, that is fake.(1). I emailed Mr. Hayes and ForLab Multimedia Forensics, September 30, and asked whether Arpaio’s statement was accurate. Hayes responded, “I have not testified as to the authenticity of the birth certificate.” Arpaio-Maintains-Obamas-Birth-Certificate-Is-Fake-At-Fresno-GOP-Event Arpaio Takes Questions At Heated Press Conference In California
