“…Rob Haney, An Orthodox Catholic In Phoenix and retired chairman of that area’s Republican Party, has long criticized Catholic bishops substituting political liberalism for Church doctrine. Asked by The Wanderer for his reaction to McElroy’s Modesto talk, Haney said: “Democrat Party operatives have been infiltrating the ranks of the Catholic hierarchy for many decades. Pope Francis’ assertion that there is no Islamic terrorism and Bishop McElroy’s address at what would more appropriately be called the ‘anarchists” convention are only further evidence of the fact. “They are experts at disinformation and are directing their flocks to join the Resist movement led by Obama, (globalist George) Soros, and the ACLU that is bringing chaos and riots to our cities, universities and gatherings throughout the country,” Haney said. “These are not religious men. They are ideological men and they are in the process of destroying the Catholic Church. They are the bishops of the Archdiocese of Anarchy and Lawlessness,” he said, adding: “The Pope is removing religious men from positions of authority and replacing them with ideologues who support his new-world-order view. The cardinals he has been appointing will vote for another leftist ideologue to replace Pope Francis when he is judged by Christ. The religious base will not have the ability to replace an Obama with a Donald Trump.” See full story: Selective-Morality-California-Bishops-Call-To-Disrupt-Trumps-America-Betrays-His-Political-Bias Haney is a former two-term chairman of the Maricopa County Republicans.

Pima County Tea Party Patriots are asking conservatives to call or contact the offices of Senators John McCain, Jeff Flake and Martha McSally on Mon., Feb 27 to remind them to keep their promises to repeal Obamacare. Suggested/modified text: Dear …. “There are no more excuses. The Affordable Care Act is not affordable. It’s time for you to follow through on your promise and do away with the health-insurance law. I urge you to fully repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), including all provisions relating to federal regulation of the insurance market.

Activist Bill Heuisler: A conservative group called the Tempe Republican Women called on Trump supporters to avoid watching the Oscars to send a message to “arrogant, bitter, angry and divisive” anti-Trump Hollywood celebrities. “These arrogant, pompous, pampered soulless individuals declare that half of Americans are racist, sexist, and bigoted for voicing our political choice through Donald Trump,” the group wrote, mentioning by name actresses Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence and singers Madonna and Miley Cyrus. “Yet there can be no doubt that the entertainment industry does more to exploit, degrade, minimize, and stereotype women than Donald Trump or any other industry ever has.” See: trump-fans-urge-oscars-boycott/
