LD30 PC Timothy Schwartz: NOT a coincidence! Like many of you, I attended the Trump rally here in Phoenix on Tuesday. During his message, the President made a strong point that the logjam in Washington would never get fixed until we got rid of the Senate filibuster. Early Wednesday morning I woke up remembering our last LD30 meeting with US Congressman Trent Franks as our honored guest. Trent's message covered many topics, but one of them was eliminating the Senate Filibuster...(he gave us an wonderful article he'd written on the subject.) So, yesterday I texted my friend Trent ad's asked him if there was any correlation of the topic being on his front burner and being in the President’s speech. Trent texted me back and affirmed that he indeed had spoken to the President about the matter, and that the President had made the issue part of his agenda. I thank God for Trent Franks. Both men want to do what is right for America. trent-franks-trump-phoenix-arizona-rally-end-senate-filibuster

Former Maricopa County Republican Chairman Lyle Tuttle: - A Question for ALL AZ PC’s:

    1. Is this the late 30’s in Germany? Sure looks like it to me!

     2. Precinct Committeemen denied access to contact information within their own

     3. Big money donors dictate who they choose for Party Staff?

     4. Volunteers at the West Valley Office kicked out because they support the Lines recall?

The members of our exec committee/board are apparently too scared or too timid to ask the questions that would help heal this huge rift in the AZGOP. WHY?? That is exactly what they agreed to when they put their name in the hat for election and swore an oath for the office – have they resigned or are they too timid or perhaps they ‘just don’t know what questions to ask’? IT IS THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO DO THAT! You can’t sit in a darkened room – people know who you are and want accountability! We need to resolve this BS and get on with the business of electing REPUBLICANS. We simply can’t properly do that without the trust of the ‘rank and file’ PC’s. No more hiding; no more preventing people from asking questions – ask yourselves: “What CAN we agree on?” and resolve the issues. I’m sorry if it “ain’t” pretty, but lack of transparency has seldom brought anything except the scurrying away by those who failed to do their jobs.

Gila County Republican Committee Chairman Gary Morris: I attended President Trumps rally in Phoenix. Some observations:

GCRC 2017 Trump Ralley August Crowds 2The fake media was reporting “light attendance” that evening and the following morning. I noted that none had video of the hall. I was fortunate to have an elevated seat directly behind the President and could see the whole 100 yard by 100 yard hall packed with Trump supporters wall to wall. See photo and more comments

1. I believe the President’s speech was the best he has delivered since announcing his run for the Presidency.

2. A message to ALL Republicans in Congress; The mass of supporters at the rally are not only President Trump’s base – they are also YOUR base. If you’re a “Never Trumper” or weak in supporting the President’s agenda, that base will surely let you know how they feel in November 2018!

     It’s also interesting to note we are also are seeing a number of folks purchasing tickets for our Reagan Day Dinner September 1st specifically to have an opportunity to speak to Senator Jeff Flake. For information, go to

LD23 Rep Jay Lawrence: While the right to anonymity is sometimes desirable in healthy political discourse (think of letters to the editor, etc), too many who wish to act violently hide behind hoods or masks in an effort to intimidate or conceal their identity from law enforcement. To help discourage these acts of violence and better protect Arizonans, I am in the process of initiating legislation that would unmask (through criminal penalty) those who, at political parades or demonstrations of any kind, wear hoods or masks in order to hide their faces, wear hoods or masks while being involved in any acts of violence, or wear hoods or masks while interfering with those at the scene trying to maintain order. I have sent this suggestion to our house attorneys and they are in the process of wring the actual legislation, I will introduce the bill that is written as my first order of business when we return to session in January. It is important to note that while Arizona has no such law now, other states have various forms of unmasking laws. I'm sure that some opponents will suggest that we'll be rounding up people on Halloween or some such nonsense, but that will not be the case. I have spoken with law enforcement and they tell me that much of the damage at these events is caused by people hiding their faces. With the facial recognition available to law enforcement today, it is much easier to identify those who are guilty of destroy property or committing violence against other people. My law will unmask them, discouraging them from such behavior, and helping to prosecute guilty parties who commit crimes. I appreciate any thoughtful ideas you have on this topic and will ask for your help when the bill goes to committee and to the governor. Contact:

Activist Maureen Bayardi: Thank you for all or your dedication and hard work.

LD13 Activist Nohl Rosen: Thank you for getting the word out about my business being attacked online by the left computer repair owner because I support President Trump. While Google got the fake reviews that I was concerned with taken down, another member of the liberal left posted another fake review claiming those patronizing my business “may be subject to discrimination” and made the claim that I’m racist against many cultures.  So the attacks from left continue because I support President Trump. Sadly, Facebook didn’t do anything yet about the negative fake reviews I reported to them. Even sadder is conservative business owners supporting President Trump are having their businesses attacked and the lame-stream media ignores it. Of course when a liberal claims they’re being discriminated against or when the Black Lives Matter terrorists and ANTIFA cause nothing but chaos, the lame-stream media gives them all the camera time they want.

     One positive experience from all of this was that I received a call from one of your readers who expressed their sympathies and support after reading the Briefs posting about what my business is facing. That meant a lot.  It shows that when push comes to shove conservatives will stick together and show support for one another. I won’t allow myself to be bullied by the left and I certainly won’t be made to feel ashamed for expressing my patriotism and support for President Trump. My business will survive this because when a customer calls needing help with they a computer problem they don’t care that I’m conservative, they just want good service. Nonetheless, I just wanted you to have an update.

Arizona Town Crier Jim Ehl – Regarding State Committeeman Bruce M Piepho's Commentary on Former MCRC Chairman Lyle Tuttle to AZGOP First VC Parralee Schneider: My response – excellent questions and conversation. Thank you Lyle Tuttle! Isn't it time to end the misdirected leadership of the Arizona Republican Party (AZGOP)? It is time to return to the rule of law. It is time to revise the By-laws to reflect what the Precinct Committeemen/women and State Committeemen/women can support as a viable honest organization to aid the election of Republican candidates reflecting the Republican Party platform and principles.’ The MCRC briefs certainly makes for interesting reading.  With respect towards Piepho, who said, “It is time to revise the By-laws to reflect what the Precinct Committeemen/women and State Committeemen/women ....”  Consider, when were the AZ GOP bylaws written?  How many times have they been updated?  How many times have they been ignored or violated?  How many times, like Piepho did, someone note that the AZ GOP bylaws be revised or updated?

    The AZ GOP bylaws state, “B. Method of Amending Bylaws An amendment to these bylaws may be proposed at any meeting called in accordance with these bylaws. A copy of the proposed amendment together with a statement explaining the purpose to be achieved and the reasons in support thereof shall be mailed to each member by the secretary with the notice of call for that meeting. A two-thirds vote of the members present in person or by proxy shall be necessary to pass any motion to amend.” Further on in the AZ GOP bylaws it is stated,  “C. Other Committees: The state chairman may appoint such other committees as may be desirable from time to time.”  As pointed out in other emails, since the AZ GOP bylaws clearly points out the method for amending the bylaws, for the chair to usurp that directive using paragraph V.C. is a clear violation of the AZ GOP bylaws!

     Meanwhile. the County Chairmen, who has purview over the Precinct Committeemen, just sit their back side, and some ‘beat their chest’ like they were important!  They could be!  If someone had enough backbone to organize the County Chairmen into a viable group to be recognized, they could represent all the PCs and hold the state chair accountable.  Out of the 15 County Chairs, does anyone with enough leadership capabilities come to mind?  Maybe they could respectfully ask Jonathan Lines (who paid off the debt he didn’t know about as Treasurer), who is the party’s Finance Chair?  Who are the finance committee members from each county? When was the party’s budget approved?  Or do we plan to stay as a party under the dictates of one man?  Maybe even ask why the secrecy!

The Arizona Project will meet at 6:30 pm., Mon., Aug 28 at 3375 E Shea Blvd in Phoenix with author Rebecca Keating, who will discuss “My Life Under Sharia Law” – comparing life in America vs what we face if we don’t wake up. Her book Impact Your World exposes how to Empower the Conservative Citizen as well as empowering parents to educate their children.  The ASU grad’s book talks about the power and value of Free Speech. She will autograph any book purchased at the meeting. Contact: Chairman Ron Ludders 602-677-1496.

Phoenix Becomes Illegal Alien Sanctuary After Leftist Group Orders It In Private Meeting With Police Chief Arizona’s largest city recently became a sanctuary for illegal aliens after its police chief held a private meeting with a leftist group that demanded a change in immigration enforcement policies, records obtained by Judicial Watch show. The closed-door session between Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams and Will Goana, policy director for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Arizona, occurred just weeks before the Phoenix Police Department quietly implemented a new policy banning officers from contacting the feds after arresting an illegal alien and forbidding them from asking about suspects’ immigration status. The new order violates key provisions of a state law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court and leaves the city vulnerable to costly lawsuits.

     Judicial Watch exposed the abrupt policy revision last month after obtaining a copy of the Phoenix Police Department’s new sanctuary Immigration Procedures and filed a public records request to uncover the steps that led to the change. Law enforcement sources told Judicial Watch in July that the revisions were crafted by a Hispanic advisory committee that promotes open borders with the backing of the influential ACLU. It appears to be part of a broader scheme to dodge federal immigration laws in Arizona’s most populous county. Earlier this year Judicial Watch reported that the newly elected sheriff in Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix, was releasing hundreds of criminal illegal immigrants—including violent offenders—from county jail facilities to protect them from deportation.
