Notes From Readers

Opinions expressed by readers are not necessarily those of the Briefs. Commentary running over 400 words is subject to editing. – ft

Anti Proxy Spokesman LDPC 15 Archie Dicksion to Arizona Legislators: It appears that HB 2102 has gotten hung up in the administrative procedures and has not been assigned to the Rules Committee for consideration. In the past, the legislature has recognized the inherent problem with ballot harvesting and has enacted legislation to control that conduct. I would like to point out that ballot harvesting also exists at the political party level in the State of Arizona. HB 2012 in an effort by the grassroots Precinct Committeemen to curb that practice in political parties. Of the eleven (11) western states, only Arizona allows unlimited use of proxies in political party meetings. The efforts of the PC at the Republican party level has been turned back by the very use of proxies that they are trying to correct. Your rules do not allow proxy voting, Circuit Court decisions do not allow proxy voting. There are hundreds of Precinct Committeeman across the state that are interested in helping you correct this problem at the party level. The question is how can all of us help you get this Bill before the Rules Committee and before the entire house for an up or down vote. We need your help and we are also willing to help you in this endeavor. Your consideration in this matter is greatly appreciated. I await your response on how we can be of assistance.

LD15 PC Archie Dicksion to Speaker Mesnard, Majority Whip Townsend, Chairman Shope: House Bill 2012 was passed in the Government Committee on February 8, 2018. As I am sure you are aware, there were numerous people there to speak on behalf of the proposed Bill. Some of those people that attend came from long distance to express their support. This is a matter of importance to many Precinct Committeemen and State Committeemen in the Republican Party in the State of Arizona. We have watched, year after year, while the internal workings of the party are controlled by a few members who carry large numbers of proxies. We all know that the leaders of some of the legislative districts recruit PC’s not because they will work on the behalf of the party but because their vote can be controlled by the proxy method. This should be a matter of importance to each of you as it has a potential effect on your future elections to office. Do you want a PC who is only there in name only or do you want one that you can count on when you need them talking to their family, friends and neighbors on your behalf. When you limit the use of proxies, then there is less incentive to recruit PC’s only for their vote. You put more members into those positions who will actually work for the benefit of the party. The result will be a stronger party for the benefit of all members and candidates. On behalf of all of those hundreds of people who signed petitions to limit the use of proxies and for the strength of the party you are requested to place HB 2012 on the Rules Committee Agenda and to bring it before the Committee of the Whole to allow it to be considered. Your consideration in this matter is greatly appreciated

Anti-proxy Spokesman Archie Dicksion to Gov Doug Ducey: I am sure you are aware, the Democrat Party has, on numerous occasions, indicated that Arizona is a state they believe can be turned from red to blue. There is one way that can be defeated and that is to have people on the street canvassing for Republican candidates. Nothing is as important to a candidate as to have feet on the ground talking to family, friends and neighbors about those candidates. This is free advertising. That sir is what HB2012 is all about. For years the Arizona Republican Party has used the proxy system to thwart the intentions and activity of the base of the party to allow a few individuals to control the direction of the party. In the past, that has not mattered much as the state was reliably red. That may no longer be the case and we need those feet on the ground.  At the Maricopa County Meeting this past January there were over 650 no shows that were allowed to vote by proxy. At the state meeting there were over approximately 400 proxy votes. The question for you and other future candidates is would you rather have those proxy votes out walking the street for you or would you prefer those proxies be turned into warm bodies helping Republicans win elections. It would be appreciated if you would make contact with those in the legislature that you know and let them know you want HB 2012 to move forward. Your consideration in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Sheriff Richard Mack, former Graham County Sheriff, Founder and President of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA), NRA Hall of Fame member and current high school teacher at the Heritage Academy is calling for a one-hour uninterrupted, unedited, live, televised round table discussion with the outspoken survivors of the Parkland Massacre to discuss the school shooting and real measures that can be taken to minimize future loss of lives. “We all mourn for the tragic loss of life and have a shared responsibility, as parents, citizens and leaders in the community to respectfully and thoughtfully address our children’s safety at schools,” Sheriff Mack said. Cameron Kasky, an 11th-grade survivor and leader of the March for Our Lives rally said, "This isn't about the GOP. This isn't about the Democrats. This is about the adults. We feel neglected and at this point, you're either with us or against us." Sheriff Mack agrees. “It is time we have an adult conversation with these young men and women about the reality of the world and the role guns play in our society. Now is the time for the nation to come together to listen to one another out and discuss real measures that will keep our children safe in school.” Mack continues, "Should Cameron Kasky and his outspoken classmates accept the invitation, I call on all of the major broadcasters (CNN, MSNBC, FOXNEWS, NBC, CBS, ABC, OANN, and others) to air this historic roundtable discussion live in primetime." Mack gained national attention when he sued President Bill Clinton over the Brady Gun Ban winning in the US Supreme Court. Since that landmark Supreme Court ruling Mack has written six books and appeared at over 150 conservative political rallies nationwide. He has stood against the incursions of the Federal Government and has fought for civil rights from Hawaii to Bangor, Maine. Mack is in the NRA Hall of Fame and is a CD2 candidate.

Dale Gohr of Clarkdale: I cannot believe there is anything more important in the currentclimate than “Enforce The Stupid Laws” or “Enforce The Laws, Stupid!” In the 1980’s, President Reagan signed a law granting amnesty to a few illegals as a one-time process to enforce immigration laws. Apparently, it set a precedent to promote the New World Order; by Liberal Democrats and Camouflaged RepublicRATS. The public lives in blissful ignorance as it is spoon-fed mainstream media accounts altered to fit the New World Order. Unfortunately, that “crap” has infiltrated the mindset of the population. Through misuse of terminology, activist judges, leftist organizations and late night comedians garner more public attention than any news service - accurate and/or fake. Add the US Justice Department - a politically pandering powder-keg and you have a useful tool for the New World Order.

The leftists want to overturn the Constitution. In 1913 the Ratification of the 16th and 17th Amendments were like separated parts of a Trojan horse style encroachment. When joined, they laid the groundwork to destroy the State and Commonwealth ability to monitor national spending and legislative decisions. A solid foundation for the Socialistic New World Order became solidly set in the US Statutory Process.

The best legislation for this nation would be to repeal the 16th and 17th amendments, enforce the immigration laws and gun ownership; and insist on resignation of the top 30 FBI bureaucrats (except for the few worth keeping). We need to Enforce The Laws. Stupid!!! Unenforced laws only breed more contempt for the law.

Joy Behar defined insanity as someone like Mike Pence or any of the infinite number of us that communicate with “Almighty God” and apparently thinks it is rational for the Special Counsel to spend a year and Millions finding nothing. How much meddling has the United States done in Foreign Elections?” Ms. Behar, Almighty God speaks to everyone; it is not the sender that is lacking – the problem is with the receiver(s).

CANDIDATE COMMENTARY

Editor’s Note: Please keep opinion pieces to 400 words. If extended, they will be subject to editing. Opinions expressed below are not necessarily those of the Briefs. Briefs does not endorse candidates. – ft

Supt of Public Instruction Frank Riggs: I'm not going to reply to Branch anymore.  It's abundantly clear that he doesn't care about facts and the truth and simply wants to engage in name-calling. The latest example is his attack on me for co-sponsoring congressional legislation requiring the federal government to reimburse the states for the cost of educating illegal immigrant children in K-12 schools (I also co-sponsored companion bills requiring the federal government to reimburse the states for the cost of incarcerating illegal immigrants and the cost of providing pubic health care to illegal immigrants). The facts are crystal clear.  In 1982, the Supreme Court ruled that states must educate "undocumented" children: ImmigrantRights The courts have also said the States may not usurp the federal power over immigration (numerous appellate court decisions under the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution). Branch ignores the Supreme Court decision and case law, and the Constitution and doctrine of separate, enumerated powers delegated to the federal and state governments. I have no reason to doubt his claim that he's highly educated.  But he either doesn't know how to read and interpret congressional legislation, court rulings and case law or he's being intentionally untruthful and misleading. He's obviously not interested in having a civil, informed discussion and debate of the issues in the Superintendent's race.  He accuses me of "creat(ing) the problem we now have with DACA" This is what he posted on the LD 15 Facebook page this Sunday morning: Robert Branch Riggs, You just do not get it, the problem is illegal immigration, and your solution “Free education to all illegal immigrants K-12.” You created a magnet for illegal immigration, and You created the problem we now have with DACA. #DACARiggs#CluelessRiggs My voting record as a Member of Congress on immigration-related legislation is well documented: gradescoresheet You'll note my A+ grade on Chain Migration and my A+ grades on reducing "Amnesty Entitlements," "Illegal Immigration Rewards," and "Anchor Baby Citizenship." It's clear Branch is only interested in false accusations and character attacks.  Hence, I don't regard him as a serious candidate, and I'm sure as heck not going to stoop to his level.

Supt of Public Instruction Dr Robert Branch: Frank ‘DACA’ Riggs uses his political spin to mislead you. We know that Riggs, a three-term congressman from California, cosponsored H.R.4062 (1996) directing the Secretary of the Department of Education to reimburse states for the cost of educating illegal aliens K-12. This is not disputed by Riggs. However, to justify his actions, Riggs cites a Supreme Court ruling (Plyler vs. Doe (1982)) that was handed down 14 years prior to Riggs’ bill.   Riggs does not want you to know that there was a 14 year gap between the Court’s ruling and his Bill. During that 14 year gap, California created its own immigration problem with the Sanctuary City movement. Riggs does not mention that in 1985, San Francisco passed the “City of Refuge” resolution that prohibited the use of city funds and resources to assist in federal immigration enforcement. This act of defiance against federal immigration enforcement fueled the fire that made California the first Sanctuary State. Riggs does not mention that by the mid 1990s, California was the hub of illegal immigration and by1994, Orange County was bankrupt (due to fraudulent investments).  This bankruptcy affected every part of California and many were questioning California’s illegal immigration policies. Instead of fixing California’s Sanctuary illegal immigration policies, as Arizonans tried with SB1070,   Riggs thought it would be a great idea to force every taxpayer in the nation to bail out California and force the U.S. Department of Education to pay for the education of illegal aliens instead of California paying for its own Sanctuary policies. The Plyler vs. Doe ruling meant for the States to pay, not the U.S. Department of Education. Riggs did not cosponsor that bill because of Plyler vs. Doe; he uses the Plyler vs. Doe to sell his bill; now our children are paying the price. This is Riggs’ political spin on what happened, and he thinks that you will buy it! He will keep throwing shiny pennies to try to distract from the facts. Riggs helped to create and foster the problem that we now have known as DACA! Do your research.  A swampy politician will spin things and leave out facts for ultimate gain. Leaders lead, but swampy politicians will lead you into the swamp. I want the U.S. Department of Education dismantled, and I will fix the mess DACA Riggs helped to create.  Drain the Swamp - Vote4Branch.com

US Senate candidate Dr Kelli Ward: Martha McSally is the Establishment's pick for Arizona — there’s no two ways about it. Of course, on the campaign trail she calls herself a conservative. But her record shows otherwise. She voted

· against an amendment to end DACA...

· against an amendment that favored Constitutional religious freedom for businesses...

· against an amendment to prohibit illegals from service in the military...

· voted in favor of the FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act, a piece of legislation that encroaches upon the Fourth Amendment and individual privacy.

· supported the Bipartisan Budget Act.

· left-leaning Martha McSally maintains an F-rating at the Conservative Reviewa score even worse than "Fake" Jeff Flake!

Well, other top conservative groups agree:

· The Heritage Foundation's Heritage Action for America gives Martha McSally an abysmal score of 58%

· FreedomWorks gives McSally a cumulative score of 57%, with a ZERO percent rating so far in 2018

· The American Conservative Union has McSally at a lifetime rating of 67%, a lower score than Jeff Flake, John McCain and every other Arizona Republican on ACU's list!

I know you agree that with a failing resume like the one Martha McSally has, she does not deserve a promotion.That's why I'm reaching out to you for support right now — will you help me defeat liberal Martha McSally and take back our state's precious Senate seat for the conservatives? Chip-in Thanks for standing by my side in 2018 — together we'll defeat the Establishment's pick: Martha McSally.
