Wikileaks: Clinton-Bribed-6-Republicans To ‘Destroy Trump’ Guess who is listed??

Marianne Ferrari, LD20 PC and State Committeeman: Is The Establishment Preparing To Sacrifice Chairman Lines?  The Absolute Necessity of Calling a RINO, a RINO : I, the person behind the effort to remove Chairman Lines, met Parralee Schneider, our 1st vice chair, for the first time, last Friday evening, at a meeting called for state committeemen in Pima County. Damien Kennedy, whom I believe to be another friend of the Establishment, also attended--after having emailed me recently to say that he is fine with removing Chairman Lines. In his email, he told me that he can understand doing that, but believes I’ve overstepped in calling for the removal of the 1st and 2nd vice chairs. I wondered at his apparent willingness to let Lines be removed. Perhaps they know they are in a very weak position, I thought, so are willing to sacrifice the chairman, thinking that the two vice chairs will retain the status quo. That is exactly what I am convinced they would do, thus preventing any change to come from our great effort. Hence the absolute necessity of calling for the removal of all three.

     My Conversation with Parralee and Damien - We began our conversation by pledging to remain cordial and polite, yet be frank and clear about our opinions and convictions. We all kept that pledge, so the evening ended in a friendly manner. Nevertheless, I thought the frankness on both sides revealed a great deal, not least the clear and pressing need to remove RINOs from all elected offices in our state party.

     I began by asking Parralee what her duties are, as 1st vice chair, something I don’t think she expected to be asked, because her answers seemed pretty vague, and repetitive. Parralee twice mentioned chairing committees, even though the only one she named, specifically, occurred while Robert Graham was still chair. When I asked her how often she must trek north to the 24th St. office, she engaged in such protracted hemming and hawing that it seemed clear to me that she must go quite rarely to 24th St., but didn’t want me to know that. In the end, Parralee’s responsibilities as an elected officer seemed quite few. She does proudly hold her title as 1st Vice Chair. I couldn’t help wondering, though: Is she a placeholder, just as Chairman Lines certainly seems to have been, as Treasurer under Graham? Is she a 1st vice chair-in-name-only? If Parralee is a placeholder, it would appear that we now have a pattern of possibly multiple elected officers who do not actually do the work assigned to their offices.

Congressman Trent Franks: Sheriff Arpaio has been a long-respected member of the law enforcement community who has dedicated his life to keeping Arizona communities safe. He has no prior convictions, no criminal record, no record of wrongs. In his twilight years, he deserves to retire peacefully and enjoy the satisfaction of a hard-earned and honorable retirement. Let us have an honest moment – this has been a political prosecution from the beginning. The real reason Arpaio is in legal trouble right now is because a Clinton-appointed judge decided to issue a judgment that contradicted every single witness that testified in the case. Pardoning Sheriff Arpaio would be celebrated by Arizonans that appreciate and respect a man who has accomplished so much for law and order in our state. It would absolutely be the right thing for President Trump to pardon Sheriff Joe.

LD21 Randy Miller: Upcoming elections for LD 21: It is a sad when you have two “conservative” Representatives incumbents in an LD, both early in their legislative careers, and given what they must work against, are doing a respectable job and you have Rick Gray, now running against them both. Rick had his stint in office and dropped out due to his political ambitions for a failed attempt at Corporation Commission, (ACC) and now has reared his head yet again. Why you ask?

    Last month when he announced his running he claimed it was because he wasn’t happy with what Tony Rivero was doing with the EPCORE and Sun City issue. I asked Rick, (in front of the group, knowing that the ACC was a separate entity under the AZ Constitution), what as a legislator he thought he can do about it? In true form of a politician he failed to answer the question and wasted air time for about 2 minutes. I again asked him the question and he spouted “I know a few guys on the ACC and I’ll get in their face”. Basically, Rick played on the emotions of the Sun City group, threw Rivero under the bus and had no basis for doing either.

    He has no authority as a legislator to do anything about the ACC and water rates and he had nothing specific to complain about with Rivero other than his own ambitions. Gray is risking our LD losing at least one seat to the Democrats by dividing our votes by three. We all know who to blame if this happens. I have asked Rick Gray in the past (who claims to be one of the few Constitutionalist at the capital and “making progress one inch at a time”) about constitutional concerns of federal mandates and his lack of standing up. He replied, “We can’t just wave the constitution at them”. Really, that is exactly what you should do, especially when you claim to be a constitutionalist and the constitution being the basis for everything a legislator does!

    Our party is divided by the ambitions of the political elite that don’t have our interest in mind. I ask each of us to seriously evaluate those running for office and ask the tough questions and vet each candidate on what they say and do. I believe, knowing both Rep Rivero and Rep Payne, that they are constitutionalist and honorable men willing to take on what is needed.

Coconino County Republican Chairman Jeff Oravits: Good news! The attempt to stop Elevate Flagstaff’s Sustainable Wages Act from going to the voters has been dismissed by Coconino County Superior Court. This ballot measure will move forward and hopefully undo some of the economic folly that far left progressive Flagstaff City Councilmember Eva Putzova has caused.

La Paz County Chairman Russell Sias: I am concerned about our country, our state, our party. We elected President Trump. We owe the office to which we elected him the respect due any president who has been duly elected by the people. Whether we agree or disagree with him and his policies is immaterial. We elected him. We, as individuals, now have an obligation to support him in his endeavors to rebuild our country. He hasn’t deceived us. We are obligated to support him.

    My concerns are about those who refuse to accept our elections and laws. You know, those deceivers out there that will do or say anything to take advantage. Sen. Jeff Flake, whom we discovered this week, comes from a family who built their ranch on the backs of illegal aliens, blatantly in violation of our laws. He, whom has defiantly refused to recognize Pres. Trump as our president, continues to knock him and what he is attempting to do for our country, all the while, claiming to be a fellow Republican, no less.

     Locally, we have our state party, being led by Chairman Jonathan Lines. This local cabal has obviously routinely ignored our bylaws, just as Sen. Flake’s family ignored our immigration laws for years. When I attempt to deal with Chairman Lines, who hasn’t answered one of my concerns, or Kathie Petsas, who lied to me about wanting my bylaw suggestions to be in our “standing rules” which don’t exist, or her co-chair, Cindy Coleman on the bylaws committee who has yet to answer my offer to discuss “in public” my concerns – after volunteering to do so privately, I become more concerned. When Chairman Lines expresses his utmost confidence in these two, and then allows the bylaws committee which they co-chair to be off limits to most of us, I begin to feel, not at a part of a team, but as someone being intentionally manipulated. None understand the 1st amendment!

    Fair warning, I do not intimidate easily! When folks start lying to me, not telling me what their objectives are, denying our 1st amendment rights, I usually push back. Till then, I am a pretty laid back sort of fellow! To the manipulators I have mentioned above, stop with the manipulative nonsense, and be open and honest with us, the grass roots of not only this party, but this state, and this country. Don’t do so, go find yourselves another job.

Packers-Coach- Pisses-Off- Racist-Players; To Stop Protests McCarthy said he addresses the anthem and his expectation of proper decorum during it with the players via a preseason presentation. “It’s something that I’ve done each and every year here since I’ve been the head coach,” McCarthy said. “We have a PowerPoint presentation that you update (each year), and you always try to deliver the message clearly to the team. Our approach has always been to give the history and the understanding of what the national anthem means, and why it’s played before any National Football League game, particularly how (the tradition) started after World War II. I go through the whole history and the importance of what it means to you personally.”

A Third of Republicans Want McConnell, Ryan Out Late last week, President Trump criticized Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell over the Senate's failure to pass a health care repeal bill before the August recess, raising the question of whether the Kentucky Senator should step down from his position.
