1-27-18 Briefs

Anti-Proxy Resolution Author Archie Dicksion is asking for state committeemen to sign his petition starting at 7 am in the parking lot as they arrive at the AZGOP Mandatory meeting this morning, in an effort to get his resolution onto the floor for discussion. Dicksion will be in the small parking lot with the barriers at the front of the church. Contact: Dicksion at 949-233-0009

Those Trying To Obtain Enough State Committeeman Signatures to get their issues brought to the floor at tomorrow’s AZGOP Mandatory meeting need to remember that at least 20 percent of state committeemen, representing at least four counties at the meeting, have to sign the petition to get an issue on the floor. The AZGOP has 1,245 state committeemen statewide.

ALERT: AZGOP Set To Weaponize The Bylaws Against Pcs

AZGOP has OUTDONE Themselves For The Mandatory Meeting - Take a look

Notes From Readers

Arizona Town Crier Jim Ehl: Here are the results to the questionnaire for the 15 county chair and 5 former chairs.

1. Are you satisfied with the way the AZ GOP is being handled?  Yes______  NO___4_     Don’t care (no response) _16____

2. Do you think the AZ GOP bylaws need updating?   Yes ___4__     No ____     Don’t care (no response) __16___

3. Would you be willing to met with the other chairs just prior to the Mandatory Meeting to discuss items above?  Yes __2___    No ___1__     No response __1__

4. Would you be willing to chair such a meeting?  Yes __3__     No__1___

5. Mandatory meeting, when it comes to ‘other business’ would you be willing to move that the results of the chair’s meeting, if there was one, be discussed?  Yes__2___     No __1___     No response__1___

There you have it!  Summary!  First, looks like the AZ GOP is controlled by a non-elected, high paid Executive Dictator who apparently ignores the current by laws as evidence by mailing an unsigned call letter bypassing the party secretary, what looks like a leaderless state chair that showed no backing of a censure by the State Committeemen of Senator McCain who later ran and won reelection, and now we have only 4 of the 20 chairs, and former chairs, willing to step forward and represent WE THE PEOPLE.  If the questionnaire had of been requested by the non-elected, high paid Executive Dictator, just how many chair would have responded? Consider, the chairs were elected by popular vote of WE THE PEOPLE.  That means that they represent the values of the majority of their constituents.  When the chairs seemingly don’t give a damn and not even bother to answer a questionnaire, one must assume that also represents the value or feeling of their constituents.  Therefore, we have to assume that WE THE PEOPLE don’t give a damn.  Who the hell cares???? We’ll see what happens at the mandatory meeting today!

Arizona Town Crier Jim Ehl: This is what one gets when a political party is run by a non-elected, high paid Executive Dictator, a self aggrandizement, non elected parliamentarian, laid back county chairmen, and a non-plus state chairman!   The bylaws thing has been ‘snafu’ from the start.   From the  Arizona Freedom Alliance, “our recommendation that everyone vote NO on ALL bylaws questions.  There are some very bad ones in that list that look OK until you examine the actual language which most people won't do” vote no on any/all votes on bylaws

CANDIDATE COMMENTARY

Editor’s Note: Please keep opinion pieces to 400 words. If extended, they will be subject to editing. – ft

US Senate candidate Kelli Ward: The White House cannot fall into the trap laid by amnesty politicians like Sen. Jeff Flake and Rep. Martha McSally of Arizona. The need to secure America's southern border and end the inducements leading to illegal immigration is now more important than ever. For this reason, I respectfully but strongly disagree with the White House's immigration framework. Nothing should be on the table until the border is fully secured, otherwise, we will find ourselves in this same situation again in a few years. In granting amnesty in 1986, President Reagan trusted Congress to secure the border, which they failed to follow through on. This time, we must ensure the border is secured first. I stand by my proposal that only temporary status should be on the negotiating table until five clear steps are completed: funding and construction of the border wall, ending the visa lottery system, eliminating chain migration, defunding sanctuary cities, and instituting a mandatory e-verify system. I certainly appreciate the president's sincere desire to get a deal done, but he was elected largely on this issue, and I am confident that if he remains firm on what he campaigned on, he can achieve the reform we need without planting the seeds for future immigration problems."
