What We Have Given Up: US National Anthem By The Academy Choirs filmed 13 years ago. Think about it!

After The FBI Abuse Memo Detailing Political Corruption In Favor Of Hillary Clinton And Against Donald Trump Was Released To The Public on Friday, conservative Congressman Paul Gosar (AZ-04) issued a powerful and bold public statement, accusing certain Obama deep state FBI operatives of “treason.” Gosar said that he would be formally recommending to Attorney General Jeff Sessions that treason charges be levied against James Comey, Sally Yates, Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein. Gosar also took a shot at outgoing RINO Senator Jeff Flake, who he says “again cast his lot with the Democrats and those that attack true patriots.”

Notes From Readers

Commentary running over 400 words is subject to editing. – ft

Activist Lori Deluca: Frosty, this would never have happened without your help. NEVER. So many people are asking me about it, so I wrote this up as they wanted a follow up. Thank You -With Your Help The City Of Tempe Border Wall Resolution Fails. As a DIRECT result of our quick 24 hour mobilization effort, we were able to get this resolution to FAIL by shifting the original vote To give you some background, the council and mayor had voted yes (6-1) in an earlier session, sent it to resolution vote and, in anticipation of the fact they were going to vote again and pass it, they pre wrote a letter. They had plans to not allow any public comment- even though it was written "On behalf of the City of Tempe." There was only one original "no" vote (Kolby Granville) who rightfully articulated  multiple reasons for his stance . Robin Arredondo-Savage, Joel Navarro and Mayor Mark Mitchell changed to a 'no" from their original "yes' votes. Pathetic they even voted "yes" originally.  Kolby stated that he has almost never seen votes change. Our effort in getting the word out directly impacted this outcome . Clearly, they had planned to just quietly and quickly pass it through. It is very important to note, that this resolution was probably only the first step to something more, as lawsuits are starting against the wall, and the goal was the get Tempe to "join other cities." With all the things to work on in Tempe, the council seems to have mastered ‘talking points’ and smiles, while wasting tax payer resources behind the scenes on their personal pet projects that have nothing to do with city council responsibilities. It is not just them, so Watch Your Local Governments. Please read below and note that that the article is a fine example of "selective journalism" leaving out our collaborative efforts and selectively quoting.. Tempe shoots down anti-border-wall resolution after heated public comment

Activist Jose Borrajero SPECIAL NOTICE: Joseb4538@gmail.com : The Democrats are way ahead of Republicans when it comes to grassroots activism. Evidence of this is the memo that has gone to their members regarding classes being held on Saturday. The AZGOP should be doing this, but they are not, so it is up to us to pick up the slack. You can get a lot of this information by going to using-request-to-speak/ Here is the text of the memo the Dems sent:“Hi *******-- Join us for this important training! Request to speak (RTS) is one of the most powerful ways to make your voice heard at the legislature. There are a lot of questions about this relatively new tool, so we are thrilled to host this training. Our training is THIS Saturday at multiple times at Maricopa County Democratic Party Headquarters.”

Candidate Clair Van Steenwyk's response to the $$$$$$$$$'s being spent by the PACS, Special Interests and Lobbyists to promote Lesko, Lovas and Montenegro the Career Political Seeking Candidates, who've proven by votes they're neither Constitutional or Conservative. I had put up a Billboard, and believe it can't be torn down or damaged by the GOP Brown Shirts who've been damaging and stealing my signs.  We hope this will aid us in Defeating my Career seeking Opponents and put an End to the Political Ladder Climbing supported by the GOP Elites and Dark Monies used to promote more of the same, rather than truly End the GOP Reign of Incumbents that have been voting for decades now to restrict our Freedoms by passing Laws to Spy on us.

US Senate candidate Dr Kelli Ward: That Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain are out of touch with the American people 9 out of 10 times is nothing new... and their recent decision to blast the President for releasing the FISA memo is further proof of this sad reality. Sens. Flake and McCain both issued "warnings" against President Trump's decision to publish the formerly classified memo, which unveiled abuses within the U.S. intelligence community. That's right: Flake and McCain were standing against the President to protect the government from facing public scrutiny over its egregious abuses. McCain went so far as to say that President Trump, in releasing the memo, is looking “through the warped lens of politics and manufacturing partisan sideshows." Friend, you and I both know that President Trump's decision to release the memo is a service to the people – and a fulfillment of his commitment to drain the swamp and clean house in Washington. That’s why I applaud the President on his decision. It's such a shame that the people of Arizona aren't getting any affirmative support from Sens. Flake and McCain on this... despite the fact that they are in Washington for the very purpose of representing Arizonans on Capitol Hill. I'm committed to standing with the President on behalf of Arizonans – and all Americans – in defense of the law. And that means, like President Trump, I'm willing to admit when the government itself is the problem. There is no way we will ever "Make America Great Again" by defending government abuses in offices where trust is paramount. So I invite you to stand firmly with me today as I stand with our President... Support my race to Washington – to clean house and ensure that Arizonans are finally heard in the United States Senate. I'm relying on patriotic Americans – not the DC Swamp – to fund this campaign past the finish line! contribution

ELECTED OFFICIAL COMMENTS

Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Steve Chucri "My View: County must take lead role on complex issues" full article - Phoenix Business Journal

Gov Doug Ducey’s Team: The state of our state is strong, and our future is without limits. By working together, with a spirit of service, we are moving Arizona forward.

· Unveiling the FY 2019 Executive Budget with 50 education leaders from across Arizona to increase education funding.

· The announcement from Skybridge that Gateway Airport in Mesa has been chosen to serve as a customs center for consumer goods being sent to Mexico.  Estimates are that this will create 17,000 jobs once fully built out.

·  Opioid special session – with strong bi-partisan support – passing significant legislation to fight the scourge of opioid addiction in Arizona.

· Strong support from the Trump administration for keeping the Grand Canyon open, despite the budget mess in Washington, DC.

· A state budget and state of the state speech that were well-received and clearly define Arizona’s priorities for the coming year.

Although it’s an election year, we’re focused on doing our jobs.  Angela and I are grateful for your support and we will continue to work hard to earn your trust.

US Senator John McCain on partisan attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice: “In 2016, the Russian government engaged in an elaborate plot to interfere in an American election and undermine our democracy. Russia employed the same tactics it has used to influence elections around the world, from France and Germany to Ukraine, Montenegro, and beyond. Putin’s regime launched cyberattacks and spread disinformation with the goal of sowing chaos and weakening faith in our institutions. And while we have no evidence that these efforts affected the outcome of our election, I fear they succeeded in fueling political discord and dividing us from one another. The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s. The American people deserve to know all of the facts surrounding Russia’s ongoing efforts to subvert our democracy, which is why Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation must proceed unimpeded. Our nation’s elected officials, including the president, must stop looking at this investigation through the warped lens of politics and manufacturing partisan sideshows. If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him.” Editor’s Note: Keep in mind that McCain was Hillary’s water boy who carried the DNC/Clinton bought and paid for Steele dossier to the FBI. - ft
