9-12-17 Briefs


Lydia Labril of Wickenburg is hosting a “Believers for Trump” meeting at 6 pm., Thurs., Sept 21 at Lydia’s Restaurant, 2027 W Wickenburg Way for the showing of Trevor Loudon’s documentary “Enemies Within.” Labril hosted a number of pro-Trump meetings prior to the general election in November 2016. “All are cordially invited to join us as we gather to gain knowledge as to what are real concerns for our country. I look forward to seeing all of those who attended our meeting prior to Trump becoming President.  He needs our support now more than ever,” she said.

UPDATE: Yavapai County PC Richard Hennessey to Yavapai County Chairman Mark Sensmeier: It has come to my attention that you allowed Jonathan Lines to ignore the bylaws and place three people as state committee replacements that didn't even run. This  is a clear violation of the bylaws! I would highly recommend that you read the bylaws and correct your mistake. Lines is trying to stack the deck to save him from removal. It’s not going to work. If you don't fix this I am prepared along with others to go on a press campaign against you and Lines. Editor’s Note: Sensmeier sent three replacements name to Lines. However Lines rejected the next three people that the Yavapai PCs had voted on, and appointed three people who hadn’t run for Yavapai County Committeemen. At 8:54 pm., Monday, Sept 11, Sensmeier sent Hennessey a message saying the mistake was his for not refusing Lines appointees and that he was working on a “several-pronged approach” to convince Lines to recall Lines appointees and appoint the next three PCs voted on by the Yavapai County PCs and as recommended by Sensmeier – as Yavapai County state committeemen.

Navajo County Republican Chairman Steve Slaton reports that LD6 Senator Sylvia Allen formed a group last week called “The Newly Formed Republicans Of Navajo County’ which he claims “is very misleading, since they have no authority with the Navajo County Republican Committee (NCRC) or any part of elections in Navajo County. To become an active political committee, you must file with the state and county as well as file financial reports with the state.” He said one person has already been misled into believing Allen’s group is the official Republican committee.

     “It is well know that Allen does not support the current NCRC executive due to their involvement in ‘draining the AZGOP swamp’ and the efforts to remove AZ GOP Chairman Jonathan Lines because of his failure to follow AZGOP bylaws and state statutes,” according to Slaton. Allen did not support Slaton’s motion at the Flagstaff Statutory Meeting for Lines to turn over records as required by AZGOP bylaws and state statutes. “While all this was all going on, Allen was crying ‘unity’ but was not supporting the NCRC chairman. She insisted we support Lines and ignore his failures,” Slaton said. He further charged, “This has been a continuing pattern by Senator Allen over the past few years, whereas she has become involved with the McCainites who are running the party. Nor has she denounced Senator Jeff Flake, for his lack of support for the President, open borders, etc, therefore she defaco supports him.”

     Slaton says that Allen also went back on her word to LD6 Rep Brenda Barton to run for the house seat so Barton could run for the senate. Years ago, Allen, Barton, and Chester Crandall reportedly agreed to switch when their term limits were up. Allen needs to keep this verbal commitment to Barton, which will keep a strong conservative voice in Navajo, Coconino, Gila, And Yavapai counties, Slaton said. “She now denies making the agreement, however, those who supported  Allen, Barton and Crandell during the 2010, 2012 and 2014 election cycles, town halls, etc, were privy to those conversations. I don’t believe Senator Allen would be reneging on her promise if Sen Crandall were still alive,” he emphasized. “If she doesn’t honor her commitment, the Executive Committee will not support her because her actions are dividing Republicans and could lead to a Democrat win for the LD6 Senate and House,” he said. Slaton said that four years ago Allen’s group took over the NCRC which resulted in the former Chairman and Executive Committee being investigated by the Navajo County Attorney’s office for misuse of funds ($23,000 missing funds.) Editor’s Note: Allen hadn’t responded to Briefs questions regarding Slaton’s allegations at post time. – ft

Sunday evening, Steve-Bannon On ‘60-Minutes’ With Charlie-Rose: Trump-Administration aired. See links to clips from the program:

     · Bannon: I’ve-Fought-For-Racial-Unity-All-My-Life; Don’t-Need-Lectures-From-Limousine-Liberals

     · Bannon: McConnell-Doesn’t-Want-To-Hear-Anymore-Drain-The-Swamp-Talk

     · Steve-Bannon: DACA-Will-Spark-GOP-Civil War, Republicans Cave

Sandy Bartlett (former Bartlett’s Bunker): Highlights of Steve Bannon's interview.

· The Republican establishment is trying to nullify the 2016 election. This is a brutal fact that we have to face.

· Mitch McConnell told President Trump I don't want to hear any more of this drain the swamp talk.

· The swamp is 50 years in the making. It's a business model. Its donors, consultants, K St. lobbyists and politicians. The permanent political class represented by both parties. You're not going to drain it in eight months and you're not going to drain it in two terms.

· The firing of James Comey was the biggest mistake in modern political history.

· The Republican Establishment said they would have a bill to repeal and replace Obama care on his desk by Easter. Come back from Easter and will work on taxes until Labor Day. After Labor Day to the end of the year is a bill for infrastructure.

· You're holding him to an unfair standard.

· I think we have to focus on the American citizens. Amnesty is non-negotiable.

· I am a street fighter. Donald Trump is a fighter. Great counter puncher. I'm going to be his wing man on the outside for the entire time.

· I don't need to be lectured by a bunch of limousine liberals from the upper East side of New York in the Hamptons about diversity.

· There is nothing to the Russia investigation. It's a waste of time. It's a total and complete farce.

· Following the release of the Billy Bush tape Reince Priebus  said either drop out or lose in the biggest landslide in political history.

· Steve Bannon said you have 100% chance of winning after Billy Bush tape.

· When you side with a man you side with him. The good and the bad.

· Chris Christie was not in there for President Trump following Billy Bush weekend so he lost his chance to be in the cabinet.

· I gave my notice so my last day would be on my 1 year anniversary. I could not fight being a government employee.

· I don't need affirmation of the mainstream media. I don't care what they say. They can call me anything they want to as long as we drive this agenda.

· I think what he (Trump) does on Twitter is extraordinary. He goes above the media heads and talks directly to the American people.

· I don't think he needs the Washington Post and the New York Times or CBS and I don't believe he thinks they're looking out for what's in his best interest.

· On Twitter, you're going to get some good there and every now and again you're going to get some less good. But you're just gonna have to live with it.

Rep-Trent-Franks-911-Anniversary-America-Must-Combat-Radical-Jihadists Today (9-11-17) we commemorate a tragic anniversary. On this day 16 years ago, radical jihadists, who had found safe harbor under Taliban rule in Afghanistan, viciously attacked our nation in the calm hours of the morning. The terrorists hijacked four commercial jets and used them as missiles to destroy symbolic national targets. They succeeded in destroying the two World Trade Center towers in downtown Manhattan, colliding into the western fa├žade of the Pentagon, and deliberately crashing a flight of passengers (which was likely headed for the U.S. Capitol building) into a field in Somerset County, PA. Referencing Roosevelt’s description of the attacks on Pearly Harbor, many Americans have regarded the date of September 11th, 2001 as a day that ‘lives on in infamy.’ Peaceful Muslims were immediately looked upon with suspicion. The terrorists claimed their terrible deeds were done in God’s name. All nations came together to rebuke this evil assertion. The God who created humankind would never tolerate the murder and slaughter of innocents… more 911-anniversary Franks is a senior GOP member of Congress serving his 8th term and member of the House Armed Services Committee.

Mary and Tom Platt – LD22: In response to Francine Romesburg opposition to an Article V Convention.  We could not agree more with her opposition.  Not so sure it’s a scam as much as it is lack of understanding on our legislature’s part.  There is already a balanced budget mechanism in place for the Federal government which is they can only spend money on things they have the authority to spend money on which are those things delegated to the Federal Government through the US Constitution.  Almost every ABC agency is unconstitutional yet the Feds are spending unauthorized money to fund these unconstitutional agencies.  They are not following the Constitution now!!  What makes anyone think they will follow a balanced budget amendment?  We have a balanced budget amendment in our own Arizona Constitution yet many of these same AZ Legislatures that want a Federal balanced budget amendment had to take principal money from the Arizona State Land Trust to balance our AZ budget, that has never happened before in the history of Arizona.  If you want to learn more about why an Article V convention is a bad idea, please follow this link to an interesting and educational video.  watch you tube

Mike Kapic, Convention Historian And Activist: Next Tue, Sept 12, at noon at the AZ Capitol, is an opportunity to celebrate and for you to really find out how this little-known process of a convention of states really works. Watch a hundred state legislators and regular citizens from across the country convene a convention. It’s a shame more patriots don’t know and understand the history of America’s founding. The derisive language used against a process that is an American tradition having occurred over three centuries and hundreds if not thousands of times, is totally inaccurate. Historians and scholars have recently turned up much of the recorded history proving that what has occurred nationally 40-50 times with three or more colonies/states evolved into a homogeneous and simple way for people, beginning 250 years ago to resolve their terrible crisis’ of safety and economic instability. These were the same types of problems we have today, just dressed differently. Conventions continued up to 1922 in Santa Fe NM. But the point is: We’ve done these many times before. The last amending convention, the Peace Convention, occurred in 1861 in Washington DC and attempted to preempt the Civil War. As that convention proved, not all the conventions results were successful, but every one of the conventions operated successfully. So, bring banners and posters and call for a return to America’s heritage as a way to use the Constitution the way it was intended. Sunday, Sept 17, 2017 marks the documents 230th birthday. Watch the AZ convention proceedings live from the gallery or at [1]. The history can be found on the internet, Library of Congress, the library or Amazon etc. Or contact me through [2] for specific info.

Frank Riggs 2Frank Riggs, candidate for Supt of Public Instruction: I’ve been a leader all of my life and career; in the Army, law enforcement, as a private sector executive and business owner, US Congressman, and CEO of a national, award winning, educational nonprofit. I’ve also been a leader in education for over three decades, as the board president of a public school district, founding president of an accredited, online Arizona charter school, and as Chairman of the House of Representatives’ Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education. In that capacity, I authored the federal charter school law – the Charter School Expansion Act of 1998- to provide start-up grants to new charter schools. I was National Head Start Legislator of the Year and recognized by the Association of Special Education Administrators for my work on the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The conservative Heritage Foundation said, “Representative Riggs spearheaded many cutting edge initiatives like school choice and charters school.” Leading our K-12 education system and managing a large, complex public organization like the Department of Education requires the right combination of executive experience and skills and deep knowledge of education policies and practices. In addition, I have the proven courage to challenge the status quo and deliver real change, and a fierce determination to fix our schools! Learn more at [1]
