COURT ORDERED THEFT: Expect to be outraged!

THE SAD TRUTH ABOUT ARIZONA PROBATE COURT

For most Americans, the concept that the government could take control of your life, seize for redistribution all of your assets, and deprive you of the comfort of family and friends while doing so is beyond a Kafkaesque notion. The court ordered control of lives, destruction of families, elimination of personal wealth, and the complete disregard for individual directives is happening.  These are not isolated cases of bad people, mismanaged funds, or folks with duplicitous intent looking to surreptitiously get rich quick off of Grannies life savings…there are many cases of full blown, court ordered removal of Constitutional rights, personal directives being ignored, families drug though years of legal wrangling based on hearsay without the benefit of evidence, and nothing short of legal thievery.  The families fight back at great personal cost and suffer at the hands of the courts in ways most citizens would never believe…until you see it for yourself. 

There is a storm building of moral outrage.  Families being torn apart, lives shattered, and the best laid plans of loving and caring spouses, parents, and children being ignored.  The collusion that is taking place between the courts/judges, the fiduciary agents, and probate attorneys could make organized crime syndicates look weak in comparison.

This coming storm is not to be ignored.  Here is one story…the first of many.

A Violation of Due Process – Part 2

The Pinal County Board of Supervisors has possibly exposed taxpayers to a major lawsuit over how the County pays overtime to its Deputy Sheriffs. In the original article exposing the arbitrary limits and policy manipulations by the County, the following questions were posed:

 On what authority can the County deprive a deputy of property rights obtained through honest labor?

 On what authority can the County manipulate internal policy to force its Deputies to not only work for “free” (unpaid “comp” time) but also sacrifice their earned vacation time (vested property right) as a result of the County’s manipulation of policy?

 Now it comes out that the County, when confronted with a Deputy’s need for overtime money to pay for essentials at home, the County refuses to pay overtime owed until the Deputy can show that he truly needs the money by showing financial statements, bills and other documentation. On what Constitutional authority does the County rely upon for this egregious invasion of privacy?

 Pinal County may have legal exposure at this moment. Nothing the County is doing with regard to its overtime policy for Deputies is ethical or legal: it is as politically motivated and as corrupt as it gets.

 Members of the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office have made formal demands for overtime payment of overtime earned. One employee of the Sheriff’s Office made a request on November 19th. On November 30th, the Pinal County Human Resources Department acknowledged receiving the request.

 On December 14th, the Human Resource Director punted the problem down the road, saying he had just sent out a new policy for comments and he will be using the new policy, if approved, for cash payouts. But until it is approved, he will not process cash payments for overtime.

 Initially, Ms. Brandi Clark, Human Resources Manager, wrote the employee that the process will take one to two weeks, which puts the request for payment into mid-December, a full four weeks after the request was made. It looks like the County is stalling until January.

 Apparently, the Deputy Association’s attorney has already sent the County a “cease and desist” letter regarding the intrusive and invasive process the County established for payment of overtime. It is my understanding the Association’s attorney is ready to take the next step.

 In the course of correspondence with Supervisor Rios, he made the following post script on December 22nd:

 “PS…We are working on OT pay…Most will more than likely be very satisfied with the solution……..” I hope so, for it is not only a matter of correcting the current process but also repairing past damages.

 The Pinal County Citizens for Excellence in Government await the County’s resolution to this harmful and morale destroying issue.

Rob Haney throws his hat in the ring following two years of outstanding accomplishments

It’s right before Christmas, and we think it’s stunning

For County Chairman, Rob Haney is running

Rob Haney throws his hat in the ring following two years of outstanding accomplishments:

It has been my honor to serve as your Maricopa County Chairman these past two years.  I am running for reelection and ask for your vote on Jan 8, since the job of implementing the grassroots conservative message remains ongoing.  My political ideology has not changed since 1964 when as a student at Penn State I backed Barry Goldwater for president.

Unity in the Republican Party must be based upon support of Constitutional and Republican Platform principles of limited government or we become but a wing of the Democrat Party.

As precinct committeemen (PCs), we do not lose our first amendment right to free speech in advocating for or against political policies.  This is especially true when a policy proposed by a Republican Representative is clearly in opposition to the Constitution and is opposed by the majority of Republicans.     

During the last two years while I served as your Chairman we have:

·          Increased Maricopa County Republican new voter registrations by 59,212

·          Increased Maricopa County Republican PC rolls by 40% from 2,079 to 2,884 under the direction of Executive Director Tom Husband and Member-at- large Dan Schultz, which helped fuel the massive and historic Republican victories of 2010

·          Closely monitored expenses and operated on a sound financial basis

·          Provided resources by which PCs could receive a concealed carry permit

·          Provided resources by which PCs could receive training in Founders’ Principles and the meaning of the Constitution

·          Provided line-by-line Maricopa County Republican Committee Bylaws training for District Chairmen elected in 2008

·          Provided hard copy Republican Platform booklets for fund raising & PC education

·          Provided website where PCs could obtain copies of the County and State Bylaws

·          Provided County Office service through the volunteer office staff directed by Karen Thomas

·          Provided County Briefs and Events Calendar through the volunteer talent of Communications Director, Frosty Taylor

·          Provided GOP County website service through the volunteer talent of Kevin Myers

·          Provided voting ballot and computer tally services at a significantly reduced cost for District

·          Reorganization Meetings through the volunteer talent of George Teegarden

·          Established working relationships with TEA Party organizations to encourage their enthusiastic participation in the Republican Party

·          Provided PC training when it was not available in the Legislative Districts

·          Walked precincts in LDs 23 (Avondale, Tolleson) & 25 (Tonopah) recruiting PCs and district officers where they never before existed, aiding in Republican upset wins in 2010.

DID CENSUS BUREAU DELIBERATELY DISTORT ARIZONA’S CENSUS DATA?

          There was much fanfare this week as the Census Bureau unveiled the official Census figures before the end of the year, as required by law. Everyone here in Arizona was paying particularly close attention.  There was certainty that Arizona would pick up one legislative seat to nine, and who knows perhaps a 10th?

          Of course, as has been well detailed, there was a slowdown in settlement here in Arizona by illegal aliens after the 2004 proposition requiring employer sanctions for hiring illegal aliens and requiring proof of citizenship for voter registration. This law perhaps single handedly derailed any opportunity, in fact most certainly prevented Arizona from picking up two additional seats instead of just one.

          What can’t be explained however, is the incredible drop in population from the July 2009 estimates from the US Census Bureau when contrasted with the Official Census as of April 1, 2010; the figures that were just released this week.  Here are the gory details:

          According to Quick Facts, Arizona’s estimated July 2009 population was 6,595,778. The population change was 28.6%, a very healthy increase.  HOWEVER, the “Official” Census figures showed Arizona’s population on April 1st this year to be only 6,392,017!  This is a precipitous drop of over 203,000 people in Arizona, and only a 24.6% change from 2000!  Now when you compare the difference for any other state in our region, or across the country, no other state had any population drop! Oops! The exception is Michigan, which did show a loss of 83 thousand people in the same time. That’s not surprising, since the auto industry has been demolished by the Obama and the Unions. Now just NW of Arizona in Nevada, the fastest growing state in the nation; in spite of the Nation’s highest unemployment rate at 14.3% STILL gained 57 thousand people in this same time that Arizona lost.  The facts don’t lie, so WHY would there be such a change? Don’t take my word for it look at the websites and compare the figures for yourself.

http://2010.census.gov/2010census/data/index.php     http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/index.html

          Well, obviously the answer is wrapped around the most significant legislation in 2010, SB1070, which required the state police departments and County sheriff’s offices, to verify identity and citizenship of anyone who is stopped for some other violation.  Certainly this legislation pushed the Illegal Immigration battle to the forefront of the National debate.  However, the Legislature did NOT EVEN PASS the law until April 19th and the governor signed it on April 23rd! So IF the Census bureau figures are based on April 1st population and they show such a huge drop in population BEFORE April first, ISN’T it the cruelest of April Fool’s jokes?

          Now, WHO would EVER question the integrity of the Census Bureau? Well let me remind you of one crucial fact: The Obama administration took the control of the Census away from the Commerce Department, moving it to the White House.  So I ask, WHO would EVER question the integrity of the White House!!??

          Yes, there were recent news reports that we’d lose population due to SB1070, perhaps as much as 100K  (Many in Arizona might say, ‘Good Riddance!’).  But 200K? And BEFORE the bill even passed? Give me a Break!  Why should we trust a bureaucracy and the Political Party that encourages IRS to investigate Non-Profits who oppose abortion, and prosecutes actors while ignoring the Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner? This is the administration that is ready to hire over 16,000 new IRS agents to enforce the Health Care bill, threatens to shut down the Internet and demands that Fox News and Glenn Beck to be silenced. Why WOULD we trust anything they tell us?

          SO, while we were indeed in the hunt for that elusive tenth Congressional seat, perhaps even passing Washington, and having indeed passed Massachusetts and Indiana in population; this White House controlled Census now shows us losing 203K in nine short months. All BEFORE SB1070 became law. Who woulda thunk it!?

Update on Christopher Smith

The Arizona Republic has uncovered additional information about the recent months of Christopher Smith’s life:

Records show Smith moved out of the home he’d lived in with his wife and three daughters in March. His wife stated in court documents that at that time, there had been “at least six months of erratic, bizarre, unexplained behavior” from Smith that culminated with her finding him with glass pipes, other drug paraphernalia and a large amount of pornography in their home.

Court documents mention “severe drug dependency issues” and state that “wife believes husband is so withdrawn as a result of the substance abuse that he cannot make rational decisions.”

She filed for divorce in June and was granted an order of protection against Smith.

Former State Senate Chief of Staff, Christopher Smith, found shot to death

Former Chief of Staff for the Arizona State Senate, Christopher Smith, was found shot to death on Saturday night in South Phoenix. The former mover and shaker in the State Senate served throughout the 1990’s until 2000.

According to police reports, the 51-year-old Smith was found shot several time in his vehicle located in the 1000 block of south 18th Avenue.

Smith also served as Executive Director at the prestigious Goldwater Institute.

He is survived by his wife, Vanessa, and three daughters, Roxanne, Sophia and Isabella.

We will follow this story as it develops.

Here is the video from ABC-15:

If Jon Kyl Doesn’t Step Up, Who Will In 2012?

U.S. Senator Jon Kyl has curiously not yet declared his intentions for a re-election race in 2012. After a distinguished career in public service it’s understandable, if not regrettable, that he may want to entertain other pursuits. But it begs the question: what might that crazy Republican primary look like? A quick glimpse.

*Congressman Jeff Flake: The look. The LDS base. The adoring national press. A top tier candidate.

*Former Congressman John Shadegg: Can he raise the dough being out of office?

*Former Attorney General Grant Woods: The likely recipient of John McCain’s support. Could he win a fractured GOP primary? The same strategy did not work for another liberal Republican, Paulina Morris.

*Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu: A darkhorse. He knows how to raise a profile. Does he know how to raise money? Speculation is he wants a bigger prize than Arizona’s new congressional seat.

*Congressman Trent Franks: A conservative’s conservative. Would he risk a very safe seat for a very big reward?

*Congressman-Elect Ben Quayle: He wouldn’t, would he? He did, successfully, didn’t he?

Let the games begin.

Stick A Fork In Him

Word is that wannabe chef and perennial candidate for anything, Vernon Parker, is dropping his bid for GOP Party Chairman.

Parker, wholly owned and operated by the most unsuccessful political consultancy in Arizona history, Nathan Sproul, left his failed congressional campaign in debt.

We are now indebted to him for leaving the race, we can only hope.
