List: Companies Boycotting Ingraham, Let's Boycott Them Back The left's "tolerance" is on display once again. Outspoken student activist David Hogg has unleashed his followers against conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham, and is essentially threatening her livelihood because she spoke her mind on Twitter. Ingraham is facing a loss of advertisers on her program after the 17-year-old Hogg... Read more…

Action Alert - AzCDL Update: We are hearing that there is a strong possibility that "Ducey's Disaster" Gov Doug Ducey 2015 2could be introduced in the Legislature this coming week. Though most of us have not yet seen the actual language of his so-called "School Safety" proposal, his public press release contained more than enough to be concerned about. Everything from court ordered firearms confiscations (and involuntary mental evaluations) that would disarm you based on the feelings of friends or family that you "could" be dangerous, down to proposals that would make parents felons for the unlawful actions of their children. Because we're long past the deadlines for bill introductions, any bill the Governor wants introduced must be given special permission by the Legislative Leadership. But don't look for that to slow this down. The Republican Leadership will not want to do anything that might potentially embarrass their Republican Governor, so any rules that need to be bypassed so the Governor can get his way will most certainly be bypassed.
     Unfortunately, the same dynamic could be in play with legislative rules regarding the progress of bills. Normally, all bills must go through the legislature in a specific way, with public hearings, proper notice, etc. But those rules can be waived by a vote of the body at the request of the leadership, and, as already mentioned, when they don't want to embarrass "their Governor", all bets are off. It's time to let your Senator and Representatives know that you want the rules to be followed. The Governor's proposal has far too much potential to do serious damage to our rights to be allowed to fly quietly through the legislature without the ability for the people to have their voices heard. A
letter has been prepared telling your legislators that you want your right to be heard on this issue to be respected, and that you expect them to fight for you!. Make sure your voice is heard. Send your email today! Click here to send your email

Michele Reagan 2017 SOSArizona’s Elections Community has responded to the rapidly evolving world of elections management with a complete overhaul of the state’s latest Election Procedures Manual.  Submitted by Secretary Reagan to the Governor and Attorney General for final approval, the comprehensive manual outlines the state’s procedures and guidelines for election administration throughout the state. The manual includes instructions for the handling of ballots, election security and other processes necessary to ensure the maximum degree of accuracy, impartiality and uniformity in for Arizona’s elections. “This year’s manual is unique as it represents the first known end-to-end rewrite of the Manual,” said Reagan.  “We set out to truly modernize election practices and achieve consistency on countless day-to-day subjects that were never addressed in the past.  In particular, it was necessary to take a comprehensive review of election procedures in light of increasing foreign threats to our electoral system.  This effort could not have been possible without the valuable input from the public, election officials and advocacy organizations.  Their contributions over the course of 12 months yielded a consensus document that reflects best practices and a broad spectrum of views. Open and honest elections are the foundation from which our elected leaders govern.  That process is made possible by the dedication of election personnel from poll workers to election administrators.  It's my hope this new manual will help them carry out our elections accurately and fairly."   602-542-4285..

Debbie LeskoAmerican Post-Gazette - Debbie Does DC: Debbie Lesko belongs in Washington DC. Anything to get her out of Arizona. Two years ago, the Arizona House of Representatives passed, with a super majority vote, HB2050, which gave homeowners, 65-years-old and over and making less than $36,000 per year, a break on their property taxes. After House passage it went to the Senate and was assigned to a committee then-State Senator Lesko chaired. She refused to even hear the bill and, of course, it failed. Now, she is running for Congress and wants to bring that same mentality to the nation’s Capitol. Actually, that mentality is already there. Lesko will fit in nicely in DC.

mark lewis  (2)Mark Lewis, Director – Central AZ Project (CAP): I am happy to tell the Governor’s office, I told you so! The AZ Legislative Council has found the Governors water task force plan to steal water from Pinal County farmers and store it in Lake Mead is unconstitutional on its face. Not to mention the fact that Water Rates would increase by $51 million dollars for 5 million water users in the state. CAP is the only authority to do water storage under the USBR Section 5 repayment contract, not the governor’s office, Not the big cities and not the big tribes.Truth honesty and the American way of water wins another small victory in the western war on water. Remember, AZ wants to speak with one voice on water, but that voice needs a conservative holding the checkbook. Arizona-Legislative-Council-Concludes-Duceys-Water-Proposal-Is-Likely-Unconstitutional

Activist Stephen Sivigliano: Last week, I called the White House, recommending that some of that big defense budget be spent on opening one or more military bases near the border.  If yaw’l think that's a good idea, call the White House, and Congress too, regardless of that "army of illegals."  An Army of Illegal Aliens Is Marching into America
