7-10-17 Briefs

Republican Briefs

CD9 Congressional Candidate Irina Baroness Von Behr: Don’t send a man to do a woman’s job: It is time to take CD9 away from the liberals. Kyrsten Sinema, I have a message for you… get your resume in order, you are going to need it. I hope you are better at your next job. Be ready for the big cat fight two cats fighting All fights are paid events, so please visit my website:

Yavapai Activist Sue Goodchild :(Saturday evening) Just got home from the drenched getting to my car....rain glorious rain at last!!! My clothes are damp and I am almost chilled!!!! Big change from the last weeks of hot and hotter days. Editor’s Note: How lucky you are. We are still waiting! Goodchild lives in the Prescott area.

Activist Lolly Hathhorn: This is an open letter to all of the LD Chairmen of AZ.  Why don’t each one of you send AZGOP Secretary Gabby Mercer a list of all your PCs with their phone numbers, address, e-mail, etc.  If all of you did this, it would help Gabby send out information that SHE deems is important!  Why is everyone waiting for AZGOP Chairman Johnathan Lines and his minions to do anything?  Would someone also let us know who the “DONORS” are!  I would like to know and I’m sure everyone else does too.  By the way, Tom Morrissey and Steven Slaton seem to be good at leading.  How about asking them to head up an investigation of their own so that all the PCs and SCs can know what is really going on. 

AZRA Chairman Jim O’Connor: In some of the recent letters posted in Briefs, reference had been made to the Arizona Republican Assembly (AZRA) of which I am its newly elected President. The statement was critical of AZRA in that we had not forced the AZGOP to comply with its Bylaws. Just for the record AZRA is a private Republican Club and has no corporate authority over the AZGOP, nor over the County Parties beneath it. That said, AZRA Members, who are also PCs and State Committeemen and in those individual capacities, are committed to do all they are able to bring transparency and accountability to their districts, counties and the state party. Corporately AZRA has, among its Bylaw provisions one of its objectives, “To provide a practical program for the betterment of the Republican Party of the State of Arizona, and the various political subdivisions thereof.” To those ends watch for future pronouncements and activities to model a better way to do politics here in Arizona. AZRA’s new motto is purposeful: “Doing the RIGHT things, the RIGHT way, with the RIGHT attitude.”

     There will be a choice coming very soon for the party’s elected State Committeemen, who are the controllers of AZGOP with a 50% plus 1 vote, to move from secrecy, distrust, bullying, intimidation, and other Saul Alinsky tactics which have been well publicized over the past several years, to a party of, by and for its Republican members. We are where we are today because too many Republican PCs and State Committeemen have been too willing to go along to get along. Too willing to just look the other way to avoid an uncomfortable situation or conversation with another Republican. Too willing to cover up actions they have witnessed which their conscience told them was wrong. Until 50% plus 1 of us are willing to stand for the TRUTH at the expense of risking our popularity with those who cheat to gain control, our Republican party will be no better, no different than the Democrat party.

Congrats To Happy Grandparents Frank And Cathy Riggs, who are the proudly showing photos of their fifth grandchild- Kennedy Ann Riggs, born July 7 to Matt and Erin Riggs. Kennedy joins a sister Savannah. Grandpa Riggs is a candidate for the AZ Supt of Education and Grandma is the Desert Ridge Justice of the Peace.

Arizona’s Republican National Committeeman Bruce Ash: Another promise kept the media has not wanted to publicize. Trump has been changing the world since he was sworn in January 20. Deal with it Dems. All of your personal attacks and accusations won't change the facts. Trump's doing a helluva job. Hundreds-Of-VA-Officials-Fired-Since-Trumps-Inauguration/

The Word Is Out that some folks are a tad nervous since court records filed Monday indicate a "much larger and more intensive" federal investigation is still underway in connection with Former Arizona Corporation Commission Chairman Gary Pierce; his wife, Sherry Pierce; water-company executive George Johnson; and lobbyist Jim Norton indicted May 23 on federal bribery, conspiracy and fraud charges.

The First Maricopa County chapter of the Constitutional Sheriff's and Peace Officer Association will meet at 7 pm., Tues., July 11 at the in Desert Heritage Real Estate Office, 8476 W Thunderbird Road in Peoria, according to Maricopa County leader Randy Miller. There is no requirement to have been a peace officer. This is a “peoples group.” He said the meetings and membership are open to anyone who believes in the Constitutional form of government and maintaining the principles and values that established this country. Understanding the role of the peace officer in or community, the role of our state legislators, the position of the Sheriff under the constitution, and the oath they all take is important to understanding how we can address the clear violations and usurpation of the constitutional boundaries and limits of government. There is much power in the people and we just need to exercise it and educate those in power that are either oblivious or ignorant of this power, constitutionally speaking. We are patriots and believe in our sovereignty and freedoms as an individual, state, and the United States and we are proud of saying so.  If we don't stand together and stop the attacks on our liberties, values and culture as a nation, we will perish.  If you want to support our constitution and help to preserve our country in perpetuity then please join us at one or all of our meetings, Miller said.

RNC Chair McDaniel: "Right now, you have health insurance costs that are doubling. You have deductibles that are so high and you have insurers pulling out of the marketplace, but that's not health care, okay? Obamacare didn't get people health care. It got them higher and higher health insurance that they can't access health care with, so we have to find a way. And you know what? Republicans are sitting at the table, and we're saying, 'Democrats, come over. Talk with us. You put this in place. Be part of the solution. It's failing.'"
