Dale Gohr of Clarkdale: Regarding the “We Can Thank The Trump Voters For Mess America Now Is In” letter in the 4-14-17 Verde Independent, Cindy Harms claims the Trump Administration is a cross between Abbott & Costello & One flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest and lashes out at the Cruise attack on a Syrian Air Base in response to Al-Assad’s Chemical Weapons attack on civilians. The attack on the civilians must be a hoax; because we have it from the most credible sources that Syria ridded itself of all chemical weapons because of the exceptional diplomacy of Barack Obama and John Kerry, backed up by Susan Rice. President Obama had issued a stipulation that if Syria used such weapons we would retaliate and they did; and The Obama Administration talked to them and they agreed to the Obama-Kerry terms and we were assured Syria would not be doing anything like that again. Then enter the Trump Administration; Assad kills more with what must be imaginary chemical weapons and Trump thought they were Sarin Gas attacks. I’ll accept thanks as a Trump Voter. After all we have the sincere words of the honest people that gave us the “Benghazi Diatribe” and negotiated the release of Beau Bergdahl and the Iranian Debacle. When Ms Harms gets into Russian involvement we need to see more about the Hillary Clinton-Russian Uranium Deal with Bill Clinton-Russian speaking engagement entanglements and Barack Obama’s “Hot Mic” incident wherein he was claiming he could do more for the Russians after his re-election would finish. Abbott & Costello were intellectual giants compared to the “Three Stooges;” and it is no accident the Stooge’s theme is “Three Blind Mice”; a threesome; Obama, Kerry & Rice. Dale Gohr, Clarkdale, Arizona USA

Arizona Town Crier Jim Ehl: Timothy Schwartz laid it on the line. See Arizona Grassroots Patriots Lost! So what in the hell do we do?  Roll over and play dead??  One must believe that most of the state committeemen are conservatives since they voted to censure McCain.  Then we see the lack of backing of state committeemen by Graham and Lines by getting McCain re-elected - ignoring the censure.  Does anyone think that if those who voted for McCain had of been privy to the information that some of the state committeemen had, that McCain would have been re-elected?  Looks like McCain still controls the party with Mathew Kenney as the un-elected Director! Schwartz said, "If his past 3 year track record tells us anything, we should all be frightened that Kenney is running our party operations! I am. And I'm speaking out. Will you join me in speaking out?” Schwartz hit it on the head. The Az Republican Alliance (AzRA) is the means at hand.  The AzRA has a good web page.  But most of the grass roots in politics read what comes in in emails.  The AFA is a good web page with a good email distribution list.  And, the MCRC Briefs is excellent, what would we do without that? 

     What's going on with the party?  First we read in 'The Only Official Newsletter of the Arizona Republican Party', what??  Then we read a great summary of party happenings from the MCRC Briefs. The AFA does a good job of bringing us up to date with specifics like Schwartz’ article.  The AzRA should establish a regular statewide email newsletter, informing every one of the happenings like Schwartz has done.  Even things like what is going on with each AzRA chapter. Does anyone really think that that the state chair is going to give up any of his power or authority under the bylaws without some pressure to do so?  The AzRA could help with that.
