Yuma PC Connie Uribe: Two young people appeared at the Territorial Gun Show this past weekend in Yuma to collect signatures for Senator Jeff Flake. (This was two days after Flake’s personal appearance in Yuma, drawing an audience of 11 GOP members, not including the four had-to-be’s.) A member of our Tea Party asked the supporters about Flake’s stance on the border wall and their response was the Senator wanted something “better and cheaper.” In his flyer, it states he has “pushed to secure the border by working with Arizona’s sheriffs, ranchers, and law enforcement officials to ensure they have the resources they need.” Well, Senator, guess what they need? The Wall! Several folks said the young people were careful about the questions they answered, i.e., refusing to say whether or not they were paid interns or volunteers, where they were from, where they went to school, etc. A frequent response was, “We’re not allowed to answer that.” Curiosity getting the better of me, I moseyed over to their table and began my own interrogation. The young man and young woman were from the Phoenix area, but they weren’t allowed to be more specific. Also, they are in school, but not allowed to say which institution. I then inquired as to why the Senator believes our President’s travel ban on certain countries is unconstitutional, and both came forth with a well-rehearsed line: Flake wants to improve diplomatic relations with terrorist countries first. When I persisted on the constitutional part of my question, the young lady mentioned something about Trump’s violation of immigration rights under the 19th Amendment. The 19th Amendment? Seriously? And yes, she claimed to have taken a formal US Constitution course. We all know what happens when you take a terrorist to lunch – you pick up the tab, he leaves your head!

Gila County Republican Chairman Gary Morris: Here’s why I’m attending the “Rally for Law Enforcement’ Wednesday at Phoenix City Hall between 1 and 3 PM as well as the council meeting that evening. When it was announced that President Trump was coming to Phoenix for a rally, the mayor, Greg Stanton, a Democrat, did all he could to prevent the event from happening to appease fellow Democrats. When the Phoenix Police Department did an excellent job of squashing a disruption at the Trump rally, he stood beside the police chief at a news conference at the incident with body language and a grim facial look of anger and a “I wanna get out of here” look. I was at the rally and the disturbance happened behind me as I was exiting down the street. Post rally video shows the police response started when protestors threw two canisters with burning fuses being thrown at police, one directly striking a police officer. The response by police in squashing the protest was prompt, justified, and proportional. The mayors anger next caused him to propose spending $50,000 to conduct an outside “independent review” (really a witch hunt investigation) of the Police Departments suppression of the disturbance, caused by protestors, as rally attendees were exiting the building. The proposals intent was purely to intimidate police commanders. The mayor next failed to take control of the 5-hour long council meeting the following week and allowed the same protestors to verbally walk over the mayor and council members. Wisely, the City Council voted down the mayor’s intimidation attempt. Mayor Stanton has demonstrated he is a weak leader and he needs to understand we support the excellent job the Phoenix Police Department did at the rally. The majors lack of judgement and leadership needs to cause a career ending event. Let’s show the mayor we support the police for a job well done.

LD23 PC Boe James: Some things are just hard to believe  What is happening in this country when you read stuff like this? 1.)On Tuesday, L.A. City Council Replaces Columbus Day With ... Indigenous People's Day as a municipal holiday. Los Angeles City Council just voted 14-1. 2.) 2,000+ petitioners want to see the Minnesota State Capitol’s Christopher Columbus statue Replaced by Prince…

Rev Clyde Bowen: Chairman Arizona American African Republican Committee - My Prayer for Houston and surrounding areas: I was raised in a real first class " SNOB" city, Boston, Mass. We almost invented the " better than", syndrome. Our schools were better, our sports teams were better, our patriotic history was better. I went to same school as Ben Franklin & 4 signers of Declaration of Independence! I was born 300 yards from " Boston Massacre " where Black Crisps Attacks was slain by the British. I rolled over the spot where the Original Tea Party dropped $3 million bucks worth of tea into Charles River. You couldn't convince me Boston didn't rule. We were Proud Snobs!! If you fell down, we would step over you. Empathy day was always yesterday, Sorry, you missed it. Then, I believe, GOD sent a massive killer blizzard! Bostonians died in their cars, died in their homes, died in the street in the snow. People who had lived next door never could be bothered to know each other, reached out, big time! Boston changed and then transformed. That is my Prayer for Houston. I hear they are acting like Texans there. Let me take it one step further. Given some of that areas history, I believe Texans are being " Americans". Americans in Texas and Louisiana. I'm sure no one is pulling up in boats, saying, “Only Republicans, or Whites or cute Blonds.” All God's children get to be saved. Hallelujah! Houston, American strong. God bless, God test us to be worthy. The water now, the fire next time, if we fail. Amen

Tom Morrissey Past Chairman AZ GOP: After observing the back and forth on the Removal Movement I feel compelled to state the following, based on facts and facts are stubborn things folks.

·         The Republican Party is still ruled by the Establishment Elite (Fact)

·         There is great turmoil within the Party because of this (Fact)

·         Encouraging everyone to hold hands (and their noses) and sing Kumbaya is more of the same old same old "Silliness" and feeding the turmoil (Fact)

·         Name calling and smearing of Marianne  Ferrari for having the courage and the right to lead the opposition against the Ruling Class Elite is the same old same old "Hatefulness" (Fact)

·         The truth is that there are a lot of questions left still unanswered by current state leadership and that continues to cause the great unrest within our state party (Fact)

·         We the people are not being represented by current state party leadership (Fact)

·         We the people are not being represented by our Senators in Washington DC  as they continue to work against our President and his agenda (Fact)

·         We the people are wide awake and will continue to push for the course changes necessary to correct the wrong that is being done by the current party leadership, and that my friends, is a stone cold FACT.

Brian Reilly, Registered Maricopa County Republican and Former LD22 PC: LD13 PC John Powelson wrote: “It is my belief that Joe Arpaio does not need any further remediation of his offense to the court. As I read Effects of a Presidential Pardon, no crime has been committed as a result of the pardon which has undone all that was done.” 9-4-17-Briefs Unfortunately, for former Sheriff Arpaio, Mr. Powelson’s belief is not accurate. Former Sheriff Arpaio, was convicted (found guilty) of a federal misdemeanor crime by a federal judge. If one would go to the U.S. Department of Justice website at frequently-asked-questions-concerning-executive-clemency#18 one will find the question: Does a presidential pardon expunge or erase the conviction [finding of guilt] for which the pardon was granted? The DOJ’s answer: “No.  Expungement is a judicial remedy that is rarely granted by the court and cannot be granted within the Department of Justice or by the President.  Please also be aware that if you were to be granted a presidential pardon, the pardoned offense would not be removed from your criminal record.  Instead, both the federal conviction as well as the pardon would both appear on your record…. If you are seeking expungement of a federal offense, please contact the court of conviction.” Following the guidelines of the Department of Justice, Arpaio’s attorneys and the DOJ attorneys will be making oral arguments to Judge Susan Bolton in U.S. District Court, on October 4, as to why or why not Arpaio’s guilty conviction should remain in place, or be erased. judge-to-hear-arpaio’s- And a personal note. Thanks to Frosty Taylor for allowing Republicans to discuss, and debate the political issues of the day on her MCRC Briefs.
