Activist Karen Schutte: Wanted to be sure you saw this. Ducey said the same thing Stringer said but who asked him to step down? The hypocrisy! stringer-echoed-ducey-with-immigration-comments

archie dicksionActivist Archie Dicksion: Yesterday, Chairman Jonathon Lines in his AZGOP Daily Jonathan Lines 2newsletter penned an article extolling the virtues of Governor Doug Ducey. I wonder if he is aware that there are more than one candidate for this office. I also wonder if he is aware that as the head of the Republican party in Arizona he should not in effect be endorsing one candidate over any other Doug Ducey 2015 2candidate? Do you suppose he, Chairman Lines, will now write a glowing article in the AZGOP Daily newsletter extolling the virtues of the other Republican candidates in the race? Perhaps someone should remind him that as head of the party he should not be making any statements that tend to indicate his preference for one candidate over any other candidate.


Lyle Tuttle April 2018Former Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairman Lyle Tuttle: Folks, we already have enough folks "in the swamp", fighting against our President. Make sure the candidates YOU support are not wearing hip boots IN the swamp -- leave the "swamp work" to the dimocrats!

Connie  Uribe - Yuma 2017Connie Uribe, Yuma County PC: We know the Political Correctness David Stringer LD1 Gestapo is poisoning this nation. Unfortunately, its filthy tentacles have infiltrated the once Grand Old Party. George Orwell said, "In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." Well, it just might take Rep. David Stringer to lead that revolution since he seems to be the latest target. Even a headline in the Yuma paper read "GOP chair Lines calls for lawmaker to quit over comments." Jonathan Lines wasted no time excelling at what he does best -- grandstanding on the backs of others.Rep. Stringer has been accused of using hate speech. The only words he used were truthful, not hateful, but they struck nerves in prominent Republicans who consider themselves leaders in our party. This ceJonathan Lines 2rtainly reveals more to disparage their character than it does to affect that of Stringer's. Chairman Lines and other RINOs trying to please those who shall not be named can waffle all they want, but they're not fooling the real conservatives. And they're kidding themselves if they think these impulsive responses will gain any votes from Independents or will improve their image in the eyes of the progressives. They need to be called on this and forced to answer why they object to the truth and the rule of law. Author Tamim Ansary explains it best. If the truth makes you angry, then you're living a lie.

Lynne BreyerLynne Breyer, Scottsdale/Fountain Hills AzRA Chair: While many sit around complaining about the upcoming Soros-led initiative, National Popular Vote, Scottsdale AZRA is taking action straight on.  If this initiative passes in Arizona, it gets the NPV Compact a little bit closer to reality.  They are coming after conservative states.  They are coming for us.  Our job, all of us conservatives in Arizona, is to act to defeat this.  The pro-NPV messaging sounds like, with NPV, happy days are here again in America.  Complete nonsense.  It's the end of ever having a Republican President for decades to come.  Hillary won the popular vote in democrat states by allowing illegals to register to vote. Is that what America stands for?  This is how the democrats plan to wipe out your vote! In light of AZRA's goal to defeat NPV, Scottsdale/FH AZRA has a plan ready to go online using the latest technology to reach voters.  No more walk teams, literature drops or phone calls.  Conservatives can participate while sitting in your favorite chair with the beverage of your choice!  If you use social media, and only if you are a true conservative and understand the gravity of the problem we face, you can help defeat NPV in Arizona.  We can reach between 500,000-1,000,000 voters without breaking a sweat!  This not the tie for spectators, no "I'm too busy to act to save my country."  Contact us at or  Put NPV in the subject line.  All email addresses are fiercely protected and will never be given to anyone.  You don't have to be a member of AZRA or the Scottsdale chapter to fight this attempt to steal our state.  You just have to be on social media.  You just have to love this country.

clyde bowenRev Clyde Bowen, Az AMERICAN African Republicans Committee Chair: Happy Flag Day. Don’t blame the flag for people! Greatest flag on planet. What’s up with President saluting Satan’s favorite country to get along with them? God bless President Trump for intentions But, does anyone in Trumpworld know to telhim how to act? We tore the skin off Obama for that move with, I guess our other”Boos”, The Saudis! Rightfully so. Since when do WE have to Bow & Scrape the Art of the Deal? I hope our great President is not “violin” and NK  Itzhak Perlman. Brief our guy! Art of Deal meet Art of War!

tristan manos  2017Part 1 - LD24 PC Tristan Manos On America, American Citizenship, And America Is A Nation Of Immigrants: Over and over again, we see America is a nation of... This to say who makes up the American people (We The People). For one example, we see America is a nation of immigrants. In observing who or what America is, it's important to remember the extreme supermajority who make up the American people are natural born Citizens, people born in America to American parents. Here's a basic explanation of how the American Citizenship model works. In general, it's controlled by a 3-part formula: 1) the child's place of birth, 2) the citizenship status of the child's father at the time of the child's birth, and 3) the citizenship status of the child's mother at the time of the child's birth. We see the ongoing misunderstanding (intentional misrepresentation?) of this model, both in and of itself and as relates to the 14th Amendment. We see the artificial construct of so-called 'birthright citizenship'—a most unnatural, misguided, and illogical phenomenon—wherein children born in America to Foreign citizen parents are somehow given American citizenship. It's important to understand the real, meaningful, and important differences between born 'IN' a jurisdiction and born 'SUBJECT TO THE JURISDICTION THEREOF.' For more on the essential origin and meaning of natural-born Citizen, how citizenship of parents controls citizenship of children, and how place of birth matters, see HERE. Contact:

Part 2 - LD24 PC Tristan Manos On The Hype Of POTUS And Republicans Are Tearing Families Apart: It's easy to see through the trending propaganda and see what's really going on. Giving children born in America to Foreign citizen parents so-called 'birthright (American) citizenship' is actually what's tearing families apart (and tearing America and its Constitution apart). For those same Foreign citizen parents, that's exactly the idea (the birthright citizenship part). Are these families somehow transformed into hybrid or UN global families, family units unnaturally comprised of Foreign citizen parents and their so-called birthright American citizen children? Add to that, we're now in the middle of the DACA and DAPA craze. Americans are asking: What's going on around here? Who do these politicians think they are? Remarkably, sadly, and tragically, it's a mutually agreeable political transaction between forces within the U.S. government, special interest groups, and those participating Foreign citizen parents who game, misuse, and abuse the system. It’s unconstitutional and immoral. It’s extremely disrespectful, offensive, and insulting to Americans, the institution and model of American Citizenship, and American sovereignty. Too many fail to stand up for what's right. Spanning multiple generations, most Americans may ultimately trace their family lines back to those first immigrants to America. Is that where it ends? Are immigrants staying immigrants for the rest of their lives? There's a legal immigration process to go through, (the most basic HERE), starting with immigrants being lawful permanent residents. Those immigrants possessing a commitment to America and The Rule of Law may ultimately become American Citizens. Over and over again, we see and hear it’s about assimilation. Actually, it's about Americanization. We must never take for granted or exclude America's demographic (hence electoral) supermajority, comprised of natural born (American) Citizens, (people born in America to American parents). A person's race is really beside the point, because ALL Americans are Americans, whatever their race. We love our fellow Americans because they're Americans. We love people of ALL races around the world because we're ALL part of the HUMAN race. What matters most is we're all GOD's creation (subject to the jurisdiction thereof, as this American sees it).
