Aaron Borders, The Most Informed Candidate in the Room

Watch this video from a recent town hall in LD-29.

Aaron Borders, the only Republican who appeared in this town hall panel, blew the Democrat candidates away with his responses on issues.

Let’s hope the voters single-shot Aaron Borders in the General Election so he can take a seat in the Arizona Legislature in 2015.

So You Want To Be A Legislator And Support Religious Liberty?

Guest Opinion by Anonymous (for obvious reasons)

Kudos to you.  But you had better be prepared for a whole lot of hatred coming your way from the hypocritical left.  They have a real habit of telling you to be tolerant while telling you to die.  As the public face of support for SB1062, Arizona’s Religious Freedom bill, State Senator Al Melvin’s Facebook page was deluged with vile comments.  We don’t have space for all of them, but here are some excellent examples of what passes for political discourse and tolerance on the left these days:

Some folks just want to blame the Mormons…  Like Kay here.  She is a former member of the church who thinks it is a cult.  Of course, Kay also thinks the majority of GOP legislators are LDS, and she intends to make sure that everyone knows that.

Kay Doesn't Like Mormons

Shane wouldn’t blame the Mormons, because he likely considers it narrow-minded to blame just one group of Christians when you can blame ALL of the Christians.

Shane Hates the Bible

Jett seems less upset at organized religion and more upset at the Bible itself.  A lot more upset.

Jett Smith thinks you're scum

Bart here is apparently still smarting from losing his job as a nutrition counselor.  In fairness Bart, we’re pretty sure that’s not the 5-A-Day plan most people think about.

Bart has a 5 lb bag!

Ciaran was in a bit of a hurry, so we just get the short and sweet from Ciaran.  It gets weird when Ciaran seems to have some inside knowledge though.  First you want him to die, then you celebrate that he’s almost dead?  Does Ciaran know something we don’t know?

And Ciaran can't wait for Al to die

Ciaran thinks Al's a cunt
Comparatively speaking, David here is one of the good guys.  He doesn’t want Melvin dead, but he’s liking the idea of tracking down a State Senator and beating him, you know, “for good measure”?

David Allen wants to beat Al

James wants lots of people to die, so it isn’t personal, okay Senator Melvin?  We mean, he does want you to die, but he also wants lots of other people to die.

James Jefferies Wants You To Die

Richard seemed like a pretty good example of the basic profanity laced “I wish you were dead” comment.  Not exactly Lincoln-Douglas, but we’re sure he’s doing the best he can with what he has.

Richard wants Al dead too

And what would a leftist outburst be without invoking a Nazi reference or two?  Gary, what’s with that profile picture though?  Seriously?

Gary Dailey Nazi

Chris Thomas has anger issues.  He isn’t alone in that.  Melvin’s campaign says they’ve deleted “probably two hundred” posts that were not what we’d call family friendly.  But Chris seemed to be one of the more inspired authors of hate-filled rants.  And oddly, Chris is very pro-Common Core, which ought to have been a completely different debate.  Looks like Chris doesn’t like Melvin’s position against Common Core either.  Show of hands here, do you agree with Chris’ assertion that he is “apart of the human race?”

Chris Thomas 2

Remarkably, it looks like part of Melvin’s team actually took the time to respond to this guy.  They probably didn’t make that effort twice.  Chris is not pleased.  Now Chris wants Melvin’s people dead.  Also, Chris would like to add his voice to those who do not like the bible.  We know, you’re shocked.

Chris Thomas wants CQ dead too

Chris and Kay ought to talk.  Chris doesn’t like Mormons either.  He wants them to die.  Graphically.  In fact, he’s already decided how he wants them to die.  We think we speak for civilized society at large when we say we’re glad Chris doesn’t have it his way?

Chris Thomas Hates Mormons

Looks like Melvin’s campaign started deleting Chris’ comments.  Well OF COURSE they did!  We’d recommend not just deleting them, but using the BAN feature offered by Facebook.  Apparently they didn’t go that route, because Chris is back and he wants Al Melvin DEAD, weirdly enough, with the bullet that hit Gabby Giffords.  Although he’ll apparently settle for a .357 round.

Chris Thomas 1

The statement we received from Melvin’s campaign was relatively patient, considering.  They said “Al’s been at this a long time.  He has voted for Constitutional Carry, protecting marriage, SB1070, and the list goes on.  So this isn’t the first time he has taken a stand on an important issue.  Receiving hate from people who disagree with you is saddening but not surprising.  Comments usually fall into four groups:  People who agree with you or thank you.  People who disagree with you and want to debate the idea.  People who just want to call names without adding anything to the debate.  And the really ugly folks who flat out hate you and tend to lost control of their thoughts and emotions in their haste to express their hate.  The third and fourth groups are just best deleted, otherwise they obscure any rational debate that might actually occur, and they tend to drive away the decent people who may agree or disagree with you.”

Point taken.  And if it makes our blog readers feel better, Chris Thomas, like most of the folks captured in this post, isn’t even from Arizona.  That makes us feel a bit better, even if now we have to feel sorry for Chesapeake, Virginia!

 

 

Maricopa GOP Chair Rallies LD Censures

To all Arizona County and LD Republican Committee Chairmen -
Below is the front page article of the July 15 Arizona Capitol Times. I want to express my appreciation to those courageous and principled County and LD Republican Committees who have already conducted votes of “censure” and/or “no confidence.”
Jan Brewer, the legislators and their crony capitalist friends that support ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion have betrayed Americans, Arizona Republicans and the Republican Party Platform.  Their lack of ethics, integrity and egregious acts are motivated by only two things – greed and the lust for power – at the expense of hard working tax paying Americans.
The law was expected to cost $898 billion over the first decade when the bill was first passed, but this year the Congressional Budget Office revised that estimate to $1.85 trillion.  Money that will have to be borrowed from the Chinese or printed in the backroom of the Federal Reserve.  Latest polls indicate a majority of Americans are opposed to ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion with an overwhelming majority of Republicans in opposition.
During the past six months, we did everything we could to make a solid argument against ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion, we tried to reason with these people and even tried to make them see the light.  Unfortunately, our lobbying efforts fell on deaf ears and without success.
During one of Ronald Reagan’s difficult political battles he said,
               “When you can’t make them see the light, make them feel the heat.”
I’m asking all the County and LD Republican Committees to make these people feel the heat by passing public censures for their actions.  They are elitists who think what they have done should be forgiven. They are mistaken.  We are not going to be able to defeat all of them, but we can defeat a majority of them in the 2014 Primary Election.
You can go to “MCRC Briefs” and get examples of public censures that have already been passed.  http://briefs.maricopagop.org/  Just type “censure” in the search field on the left.
Warmest regards,
 A. J. LaFaro
Chairman, Maricopa County Republican Committee
P.S.  Please encourage all of your PCs to keep up their daily efforts in getting petition signatures for www.urapc.org  Getting ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion on the November 2014 ballot will be historic for Arizona’s grassroots conservatives.

Taking Women’s Rights Forward With A Hard Left

Suzanne SharerBy Suzanne Sharer

Talk about a war against women! Currently ground zero is right here in my own back yard as Arizona is once again front and center when it comes to so called “human rights” vs. right and wrong! Women’s rights have just taken a giant step backward in the city of Phoenix this past month with the passing of Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton’s infamous “Bathroom Bill”. This bill does nothing more than degrade women while putting us into dangerous situations and stripping us of our dignity and the respect we deserve. When was it; about two weeks ago that the left came out with some absolutely brilliant maneuvers to stop rapists? Now women are being legislated into questionable situations in the name of “civil rights” to where they have just made it easier for rapists and deviants to have easy access to women and children. Sadly it appears that Stanton has put special interests and a radical political agenda ahead of the personal safety and concerns of the ladies who grace his city. Grown men will now be allowed into girls/women’s restrooms in our parks and public places in the name of sexual equality and human rights.

The false argument; By passing a an expansion of the city’s human relations ordinance, known as the Bathroom Bill, much to the dismay of the mayor and his supporters, we are supposed to believe that under the guise of “prohibiting discrimination” on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, this new law will not have any devastating consequences for our churches, religious organizations, businesses, and families.

All I can say is move over Mayor Bloomberg it appears that Mayor Stanton of Phoenix is going to give you a run for your money when it comes to making false arguments on behalf of the ridiculous legislation you are putting out there! Oh and by the way this article isn’t even covering Stanton’s absurd gun “buy back” program that he just revealed! I can’t wait to touch on that soon! I truly hope people won’t rally behind that brain trust as women will need their guns locked and loaded now more than ever just to use a public restroom in the city of Phoenix!) Stanton has made his position clear. He is taking the City of Phoenix on a serious left turn at the risk of women and children, pandering for the dollars he feels the LGBT community will bring him. Now anybody who wants to wear women’s clothing will not be prohibited from entering into the girls/women’s bathrooms of our schools, parks and restaurants as well as our place of worship and any other public places in the name of prohibiting discrimination, tolerance and of course let’s not forget the mighty dollar in that forward thinking America.

If tolerance is so important in this new age of forced acceptance I have to ask the question; where is the tolerance for those of us who find this bill offensive to our rights? I find it very objectionable as a woman and as a mother to a beautiful young girl that I am being told I must be accepting of men who want to identify themselves as women, giving them more of a right than I have! Legislating people into uncomfortable and dangerous situations by telling them they are being narrow-minded of others rights if they disagree is not a step towards a future I feel we should be embracing! If you have an innocent young daughter would you want her exposed to a man irrespective of whether he may think of himself as a woman using the public restroom? Does how he feels on the inside change what is on the outside? There are clear physical differences that need to remain separate and regardless of how a person “feels”! I believe we need to base our decision on common sense and the fact that men and women have physical differences that need to be kept separate and private when it comes to these situations for everyone’s comfort and security not just those of the minority who are screaming the loudest.

Aside from all the problems this creates for women and young girls, local business’s and church’s now have to be concerned with being cautious not to violate these new “rights” if they wish to avoid any legal action that can now be taken against them by the passing of this new bill simply for standing up for their own ethics. Essentially what Stanton is saying to Phoenicians is that with the passing of his new “bathroom bill” the good people of Phoenix no longer have the right to speak out in defense of their morals or can use their judgment on an issue of common sense and public safety, now that we are living in a kinder more forward thinking society based on these new “human rights” given to us via Phoenix City Council.

What strikes me as odd is how Mayor Stanton put such urgency to this bill under a veil of media silence. With so many other more pressing issues that actually involve public safety, Stanton panders more to special interest groups that make public safety even more of an issue! If it wasn’t for a few media outlets such as Mike Broomhead of KFYI who dedicated some very valuable and insightful time on this subject during his radio show last week, most of Phoenix would not even be aware of what has just transpired. It appears that Stanton who made a promise to be transparent is getting a failing grade at this much like our current President. You can bet this bill was fast tracked through the city council to avoid media and public scrutiny to prevent the large outpouring of opposition it deserves! You can find some good links to read what is in the bill here on Mike Broomhead’s page; http://www.kfyi.com/pages/broomhead.html?article=10955139

After all is said and done what astounds me the most is the total lack of respect and the disregard for the comfort and safety of the women of Phoenix! The left flippantly states that it makes no difference which way the feet are facing in the stall but I couldn’t disagree more…First off it this is what they believe then why are we having this discussion? Second, I am 5’4” and weigh 112 lbs. What chance would I have if cornered in a secluded restroom by a man who weighs twice as much as me and much stronger? What chance do women really have, our mothers, sisters, wives and daughters? What are you going to worry about more, the so called “civil rights” of transgendered men to have access to women’s restrooms or the safety of your loved ones now exposed to any deviant who wishes to put on a dress?

Arizona Republican Party Chairman Debate Comes to Mohave County – Robert Graham Wins

Word out of Kingman in Mohave County is that Robert Graham owned the room in the debate against Doug Little.

Doug Little arrived to the event late. Present were about 30-40 people which is a great turnout for a GOP candidate’s debate. Newly-elected Senator Kelli Ward was also in attendance.

Graham completely worked the room – talking to everyone before the lunch-meeting started.

Doug Little didn’t appear to move around the room that much only talking to a few people. Graham passed out shirts, buttons, flyers, yard signs and palm cards while Little made an effort to cover up Graham’s flyers on the tables with his own flyers.

Little spoke first. Graham spoke second. When Little launched into his speech, he attacked Graham’s age arguing that he thought Graham was too young to be Chairman. Little also attacked Graham for fighting for the defeat of a tax increase initiative in California - never mind the fact that Graham was extremely active supporting Arizona congressional candidates AND the effort to defeat the Open Primary initiative and Prop 204. Somewhere along the road, Little forgot to hold to the candidate agreement of staying above the negativity.

When Graham spoke, his ideas and vision were well received throughout the room. Compared to Doug Little, Robert Graham’s remarks, vision and ideas were night and day.

When both candidates took questions, someone asked about their thoughts on the United Nations. Little responded first and said that he did not believe that the US should withdraw from the UN. Most people in the room were shocked. Graham’s response to the same question was the opposite. That resulted with the entire room erupting in applause. (Little tried to take back his comments during the applause.)

When the debate adjourned, Little didn’t stay more than fifteen minutes while Graham remained until the last person departed.

It certainly appears that Graham has locked up Mohave County Republicans!

Don’t miss the next Arizona Republican Party Chairman debate tomorrow night – Tuesday, January 22 – to be held in Chandler at Tri-City Baptist Church located at 2211 W. Germann Road, Chandler. Debate starts at 7:30 PM. Be there if you care about the future of the Arizona Republican Party!

Sonoran Alliance has endorsed Robert Graham for Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party.

LD10 senate candidate David Bradley insults Military & Defense Workers

YouTube Preview Image

On the Arizona Illustrated Debate, on October 18th David Bradley, who is running for the LD10 Senate, shows blatant hostility to the veteran and business community in Southern Arizona.

The very first question posed to Frank Antenori and David Bradley was “Has the state done enough to stimulate the economy and grow jobs?”

Senator Antenori articulated the successes of the 2010 legislative sessions, “The government doesn’t create jobs, the private sector creates jobs. We create the conditions for success and I think we have done it.”

David Bradley reveals his hostility towards veterans and job creators by responding, “The notion that government doesn’t create jobs is interesting when you have somebody who gets three paychecks, all government related in some fashion, in terms of retirement from his military service, as a state employee and the entity that he works for has government contracts that fund much of their work.”

Frank did not let this insult to his veteran constituents, personal friends and soldiers that he fought beside, and the largest employer in Southern Arizona go unopposed and unanswered,

“The narrative is being created by my opponent and his allies is that somehow being a member of the armed services, I spent 20 years in the military, and if you want to equate a “government check” as you would get from sort of a welfare handout of some kind to a check that you get sitting on the side of a mountain in Afghanistan chasing al-Qaeda and the Taliban I dare you to make that association.”

“To say that I am living off the government is an insult to the members of this community that served in the military and that work in the Aerospace Defense Industry that are huge contributors to our national defense and economy and it is insulting that they continue to make that association.”

Frank was personally targeted by the “Independent” Redistricting Committee and the democrats. They do not want him to return to the Capitol. LD10 has a Democrat registration advantage but Frank Antenori has proven he cares about the people of Southern Arizona and is willing to take the political hits that sometimes come with doing the right thing.

 

 

AZ01′s Ann Kirkpatrick Remains in “Bunker Mode”

Jonathan Paton

Jonathan Paton appeared on Fox 10′s Newsmaker Sunday program with respected newsman John Hook yesterday to talk about the race for Arizona’s First District and the issues that are important to the voters, such as job creation. Hook is widely respected in Arizona and nationally, having been invited to interview President Obama.

Jonathan hoped to get the chance to appear with Ann Kirkpatrick. She refused. As John Hook explains in the opening, Kirkpatrick refused to even be interviewed separately. She wouldn’t do an interview via Skype or Phone. She’s also turned down requests from other television stations, as many of you know.

You can see the opening of the show where Hook talks about his invitation here:

FOX 10 News – Phoenix, AZ | KSAZ-TV

Here is what Jonathan Paton had to say about Kirkpatrick’s continued refusal to talk to the voters on camera:

“One of the basic roles of a member of Congress is to actually communicate with real live people. I can’t imagine why Ann Kirkpatrick refuses to be interviewed on camera, except that she knows her plan to continue supporting Obamacare and trillion dollar deficits isn’t what the voters want. No wonder she doesn’t want to talk about her plans on camera.” — Jonathan Paton

President Obama Misrepresents Arizona’s SB-1070

Arizona Latino Republican Association

It has become fashionable to bash Arizona’s SB1070 law among those who seek to profit by promoting racial and ethnic discord. But it is hard to imagine a sitting president of the United States stooping down to that level. Yet, that is what President Obama did during the October 16th debate. In that debate, about 1 hour, 1 minute and 17 seconds into the debate, he said the following:

“He called the Arizona law a model for the nation. Part of the Arizona law said that law enforcement officers can stop folks because they suspect that maybe they look like they might be undocumented workers, and check their papers. You know what, if my daughter, or yours, looks to somebody like they are not citizens, I don’t want to empower someone like that.”

But Arizona’s SB1070 calls for just the opposite. Section 2-b reads, in part, as follows:

“A law enforcement official or agency of this state or a county, city, town or other political subdivision of this state may not solely consider race, color or national origin in implementing the requirements of this subsection except to the extent permitted by the United States or Arizona constitution.”

It is hard to imagine that the president was not aware of such a key provision of our law, especially considering that his administration opposed it all the way to the Supreme Court, where it was upheld.

The president owes an apology to the people of Arizona for having made such a gross mischaracterization during a nationally televised debate.

Team Obama’s Debate Secret Weapon Is On The Way!

This says it all.

It’s the Morning After the First Debate, and I’m Giddy

Wow!  I’m giddy.  I was surprised and thrilled by Gov. Romney’s performance in last night’s debate (Oct. 3).  I watched the debate with 7 other Conservatives, time-delayed by a Tivo box so that we could halt the action and toss in our own comments.

Several of us were apprehensive at the outset, but by the end of the debate we had worked ourselves into a frenzy of excitement, shouting “Yes! Yes! Yes!” as he pounded home those key points that free-market, limited-government, fiscal-responsibility Conservatives have been trumpeting for years.

Now I have to confess.  I had no idea that Gov. Romney had this in him.  Sure, he’d had some brief flashes on the campaign trail, and his style turned for the better after naming Paul Ryan as his VP.  But like many Conservatives, I feared the Governor was just the next-in-line Establishment Republican candidate — doomed to be another gracious loser.

I’m still absorbing what I saw & heard, and I’ll have to go through the whole debate again, but I do remember Romney’s first home run of the evening (for me) when he pointed out the immorality of the debt we are piling on the backs of our children.  As I’ve written in the past (herehere, and here for example), we are effectively selling them into a modern-day version of debt bondage.  At last we have a candidate who leads with that point against all those “compassionate” Democrats, the people who supposedly “care”.

As for Obama’s own performance, a repeated interjection among my friends was “He’s flailing, he’s flailing!”.  Time and again he reached back for his standard campaign talking points, sometimes well off-topic, and he was visibly shell-shocked when Romney put them down emphatically, with compelling refutation points, nicely bulleted and driven home like nails in a coffin (puns intended).

If you can watch the debate again, keep an eye on Obama’s upper jaw near his left ear as he stares down at his podium.  One of our friends spotted it first.  You’ll see a light spot come and go as he visibly clenches and unclenches his teeth. This man is used to adulation and acquiescence, not reasoned confrontation.  Bound up in his Leftist ideology and surrounded 24/7 by sycophants and a fawning, collaborative media, he was totally unprepared to defend his indefensible record. He spent much of the evening staring down at that podium as if being scolded by his school master.

Obama will be better prepared at the next debate, and Romney will have to guard against over-confidence.  But I’m no longer worried.  Obama’s hand is incredibly weak — almost everywhere, he’s holding a pair of deuces against Romney’s full house.  And Romney’s better at the game — much better.

Of course, the election ain’t over ’til it’s over, and the Obama machine, the Great American Left, and the Democrat Media Complex won’t go gently into the night.  But we have ourselves a candidate in Mitt Romney, and I have a new-found confidence that he and his staff might just run this campaign right across the finish line going away, and leading by several lengths.

Then, the long hard path to recovery begins.
