Radical #RedforEd’s leader, Noah Karvelis, attended a symposium in Chicago over the weekend (July 5-8, 2018). It’s title: “Socialism 2018.” No doubt he was there to pick up a few more pointers on how to defraud Arizona voters into believing he actually cares about teachers in particular and Americans in general.

Here are a few of the topics little Noah the Nazi got to choose from:

“Lenin’s State and Revolution.”

“Marxism and Law”

“A World Without Borders? Marxism, Nations and Migration”

“’Right to Work’: What It Is, Where It Came From and How to Defeat It”

“Whose Clinics? Our Clinics! Defending Abortion Rights”

“Marx and the Future Socialist Society”

“Rank-and-File Teachers Speak: How We Organized the Rebellion”

“Marxists, Elections, and the State”

And my personal favorite: “The Importance of Being Unruly.”

The symposium ended on this uplifting note:

“Final Rally of Socialism 2018: Another World is Necessary.”

For four days in Democrat-controlled Chicago, all the fun-loving little Trotskyites had the chance to choose from over 100 topics discussing socialism, which is really an euphemism for Marxism, Naziism and Communism. I wonder if they had to show any kind of identification to enter the arena? Gun control was also on the agenda; were any armed guards nearby protecting these anti-American, Second Amendment-hating zealots? (102 people were shot--15 died--in Chicago the weekend prior.)

Leaders of the radical #RedforEd movement in Arizona claimed their efforts were not politically motivated, but we all know little Noah the Nazi and his commie buddies are all liars. Many of the teachers who supported the #RedforEd movement were duped into believing this was only about getting more money for teachers. Those teachers who claim to not be socialists need to divorce themselves from these lunatics or stop pretending and admit that they truly are Marxists--or are they just plain stupid?

#RedforEd is working now to steal money from the rich to give to the “poor” in the form of a ballot initiative this November. It’s nothing more than a liberal effort to redistribute wealth--one of the main tenets of Marxism.

They must be stopped.

Respectfully submitted, --J. Madison

CD1 candidate Wendy Rogers: She’s baaaaack! This week, we found out that Hillary Clinton is planning yet another run for president! I guess she didn’t get the message when the American people rejected her in favor of President Trump? Perhaps she was mad that Judge Kavanaugh, who helped write the Starr Report that helped impeach her husband, just got nominated for the Supreme Court… a nomination that could have been hers to make, IF she had beaten President Trump! The Left is now a hair-on-fire trainwreck. They keep recycling the same tired socialist leaders like Hillary, their unhinged base is randomly attacking Trump conservatives in public, and they have lost the capacity for rational thought. They don’t love America. But we do! “America First” means nothing to the liberals like Hillary. But to us, it does mean something.
It means get tough on illegal immigration - fix the system and build the wall!
It means drop the onerous regulations that stifle economic growth.
It means trade deals that make sense for America!
It means constitutional originalists like Neil Gorsuch.
And that agenda, an America First agenda, I’d be happy to promote any day.
Will you help me? Can you help me promote the president’s America First agenda against Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and the liberal Democrats in Congress? We have already seen they won’t back down, and won’t go away. That means WE can’t go away either. I need your help to send them a message. Will you donate to my campaign today, to really send Hillary Clinton a message?Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi are counting on you being too happy or fatigued to keep fighting them. I’m ready for the fight though! If you’re ready too, I could really use your help! America First,

CD1 Candidate Wendy Rogers: My Democrat opponent, Tom O’Halleran, knows his time in Washington is limited. The fundraising materials he is sending out are absolutely hilarious- this is a candidate who knows he is toast in November! Get a load of the ways he refers to himself: “The most endangered Democrat in all of the House”. “The only Democratic incumbent that has a less than solid or likely chance of keeping their seat in November”. He even calls himself a “prime example for an easy target in the Fall.” Wow. I couldn’t have said it better myself, Tom! President Trump won Arizona’s First District. This is an "America First" Congressional District.  We want lower taxes, less government, enforcement of immigration laws and to BUILD THE WALL! Apparently Tom O’Halleran knows this too. He knows I’m going to beat him in November- that’s why he has been sending trackers to stalk me, dragging me to court (and I won twice after going to court!), and engaging in every slimy Swamp tactic he can. After all, he learned from the best- Nancy Pelosi. If you agree with me, and apparently Tom O’Halleran does too, I need your help. A poll came out this week that showed me in the lead. I need to finish this deal and then knock out Tom O’Halleran. It costs about $1000 to put a TV ad on the air in our district, and $500 to put on a radio ad. Will you help me- either by sponsoring a whole ad, or by sponsoring part of one? Tom O’Halleran isn’t even trying to pretend he is anything but Nancy Pelosi’s dejected lackey. Let’s send him home this November. America First,

US Senate candidate Dr Kelli Ward’s husband Michael: The establishment media is trying to take down our campaign.They're pushing hard to slam me and my bold first amendment views in hopes that in bringing me down they'll also bring down Kelli... right before the primary. You see, the folks at Fake News CNN know that Kelli is the only candidate in this race that's an unabashed supporter of President Trump -- they know that victory for Kelli means defeat for the DC Swamp. contribution today Patriot, these folks can't even spell my name correctly...Yet they think they can get away with their baseless attacks against me and Kelli's bold campaign for U.S. Senate. Well, we're not letting this go without a fight! Chip in right away and help us fight Fake News CNN and their dirty, dishonest reporting. Let's strike when the iron is hot! Standing with Kelli. - Dr. Michael Ward - Husband and #1 Supporter

US Senate candidate Dr Kelli Ward: Fake News CNN is on the attack...After seeing our campaign surge ahead of the election, CNN's pro-establishment "journalism" is after our bid for Washington... but they can't even get their facts straight! In their recent attack piece, CNN railed against me and my husband "Mark Ward." See my recent tweet...

President Trump is absolutely correct when he calls out the fake news media... and now is our chance to do the same! Thanks for helping me fight back against these smears, Frosty.This sloppy fake news attack on Mike and I shows that CNN is more interested in being a propaganda mill than they are in reporting on the truth. Help me show Fake News CNN and all the pro-establishment journalists than I'm headed to victory! Donate.
