Americans for Prosperity’s Tom Jenney is calling for taxpayers to support
Rep Vince Leach’s House Bill 2099 requiring the legislature to send out a news release warning taxpayers if it votes to increase state government spending faster than the projected rate of growth of population plus inflation. The House Appropriations Committee will hear HS 2099 at 2 pm., Wed., Jan 31. Jenney said, “Truth in Spending will serve as a ‘speed bump’ for future legislators, letting them know when spending growth outpaces the ability of the state economy to pay for that spending. If Arizona had stuck to a spending guideline based on population plus inflation since 2003, our deficit problems would not have reached the crisis proportions they reached during and after the Great Recession. Truth in Spending can keep Arizona from getting back on the spending rollercoaster that destroys state finances. contact your state Legislators

Political Activist Lolly Hathhorn:  “Thank you, Thank you Congressman Dr. Paul Gosar.  You are truly my hero with your views on Tucker Carlson on 1/30/18!  I stand with you 100% and anyone who had a different opinion is just sooo out of touch.  Thanks you for putting it so succinctly.  I just don’t understand what part of “ILLEGAL” people don’t understand.  I stand with you all the way.  Count me in!  Miss Lolly thinks you are fantastic!

Past Chairman AZ GOP Tom Morrissey: The growing influence of Proxy voting at our county and state meetings is a cause for great concern.  Although there are occasions which call for LIMITED use of Proxies, there is no justification for the violation of the principle of "One person. One vote".  When someone takes on the responsibility of becoming a Precinct Committeeman, they should do so with the understanding that they will called upon to attend meetings. Under no circumstance should they become a Precinct Committeeman expecting to send their votes to said meetings through someone else. When coupled with the newly adopted method of voting through electronic devices, leaving no way to audit an election, the possibility of fraud and abuse of the election process is practically impossible to prevent or detect. I'm not attributing blame or accusations on this to anyone, but I am saying that many of us are not happy with it. I urge our legislators to limit Proxy carrying to one per person carrying a proxy and to our PCs and SCs I urge you to eliminate the Electronic Voting process.
Activist Francine L Romesburg : Randy Miller is a good friend whom I respect highly and does research. Clair Van Steenwyk is a good friend whom I respect highly and does research. If you’re a Psychology student you understand the 4 Personality Types based on teachings of Dr. Florence Littauer (MCPS), and Dr. Robert Rohm (DISC). Both men fit ‘Choleric’ / ‘Domineering’ type. Mine type also. I guess both fit ‘Meloncholy’ (detailed Perfectionist) type as secondary. I’m Choleric, Meloncholy, Sanguine. Sanguine- fun (where’s the party), forgetful (where’d I park my car) type, ‘oh look, shiny object – easily distracted. That said, Randy has some excellent points on his observation of Van based on his personal conversational experiences with Van. Randy at least recognizes and admits it is his opinion. Van, however, justifies his personal ‘opinions’ ‘perspective’ on his research only. Van admits it is his ‘perspective’. ‘Perspective’ ‘opinion’ – different words, same meanings.
In my many conversations with Van over the years I’ve had disagreements and agreements. I value and respect our friendship, so I’ve learned to stay quiet when we disagree just to keep the peace. He is a strong personality in a nice friendly way. As a businessman he learned to smile while hitting people over the head with a hammer. Some don’t feel the hammer, some do. Politicians don’t listen to hammers. Politicians can be sharks who eat each other. Randy pointed out in his comment, Van is not good at listening to other person in the conversation. Van wants to convince you to his way of thinking. If you don’t, moves on to next who listen to his way of thinking. That’s who he is. You either accept that or not. Doesn’t make Van a bad person. Van is a good person with a good heart. Is he good for political office? In my humble opinion, Randy Miller is correct in his opinion. If one is unable or unwilling to listen/hear their constituents; what they’re asking, needing, and wanting go get done, there’s a problem. In life it’s more about others than self. Huge difference. In case you ask Van, yes I took 2 college terms in Psychology and got A’s. I don’t claim to have all the answers. I’m not perfect; I’m fine with that. I’ve learned to keep on learning. Have you? You do great research. We all come away with different perspectives. That’s how God made us.
Former Ca Congressman Frank Riggs: Don't know when it became a "thing" for members of Congress to bring a high-profile guest to the State of the Union. I was delighted to have my wife (my favorite Republican Woman!) as my "guest," because without her, I never would have won election and had the extraordinary privilege of serving three terms in Congress. Cathy and I attended my (our) first SOTU under Bush 41!  And by the way, I always attended Pres. Clinton's SOTU addresses out of respect for the office, even though I vigorously disagreed with almost all of his policies! Editor’s Note: Riggs is currently a candidate for Supt of Public Instruction. – ft
Activist Art Olivas: Arizona Freedom Alliance does a fine job of setting the stage for the AZ GOP Statutory Meeting, which took place Saturday, Jan. 27. This back story is necessary reading for a complete picture of what GOP “leaders” think of the conservative, elected state committeemen. The site also exposed the subterfuge engaged in by the state party regarding Bylaws, issuing an alert regarding the weaponizing of the Bylaws against PCs.
Check in later with Frosty’s 1-29-18 Briefs and 1-30-18 Briefs for reports on the meeting. As I said at the meeting Saturday, I don't have any rose colored glasses! So I do my best to tell it like it is. I believe John McCain, Jeff Flake, Jon Kyl, Bruce Ash, Robert Graham, Jonathan Lines are AZGOP swampers!! The sad part of it is that every LD chairman and State PC who has stayed silent were aiding and abetting their actions and allowed them to lead us like herd of sheep to slaughter. We have a lot of inexperienced LD chairman. Some LDs have their little clicks and play musical chairs with their positions, driving away the hard working grassroots members. They are good at telling each other what has to be done but nobody’s doing anything. My own LD has gone from about 85 members to 14 at most meetings. I do not believe in political correctness, neither do the GOP RINOs as they treated us like sh*t last Saturday. Do you have any idea what to say to your kids when asked why you didn't fight for them to have a safe home, city and state? Do you think no fighting under the tent will keep them safe from McCain and his gang? Hell no, we better wake up fight to take back what belongs to our children and family! I will be going back to protesting them. If anybody has the cojones to fight back, email me at to get started! Their agenda has no room for us. You can take that to the bank!!!
