Who is Yellow Dog Sales?

Securing Arizona, a political action committee registered with the Arizona Secretary of State, recently spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to defeat two conservative Republican candidates in East and West Mesa. House Speaker “Rusty” Bowers and Senator Tyler Pace, a two-term state senator were both defeated by Trump-endorsed candidate David Farnsworth and political newcomer Robert Scantlebury. Securing Arizona spent the bulk of the money on mailers, text messages and multimedia ads lying about Bowers and Pace’s voting records

That PAC has as its Chairman and Treasurer, Youssef Khalaf, who is the father of George Khalaf, President of Data Orbital and Managing Partner of The Resolute Group.

When reviewing the campaign finance reports filed with the Secretary of State, there is one significant corporate donor to the PAC. Yellow Dog Sales, located at 2300 W Sahara Avenue, Suite 800 in Las Vegas, NV, donated a total of $227,200 to Securing Arizona.

A quick Google map search of that address shows a large high rise corporate building with US Bank signage.

The Nevada Secretary of State maintains a business registration portal called SilverFlume which we checked next for registration information. Here’s a screenshot of our findings:

All listing except one indicate the business was dissolved or permanently revoked. The one business that was listed as “active” appeared to be a property management or real estate company. However, the address did not match what was reported on the Securing Arizona campaign finance reports.

This leaves our investigation at a standstill until additional information is reported by the PAC or posted by the business or 3rd party.

We believe that all this information was reported to the Secretary of State in a formal complaint and that complaint may have also been forwarded to the Arizona Attorney General for review.

Should any of the information be discovered to be false and misleading, the appropriate investigative agency could bring charges of fraud and/or perjury against the PAC and its representative, Mr. Khalaf.

We will continue to research and investigate this matter but welcome any tips or information that could lead to further discovery.

Chuck Coughlin Discusses Arizona Primary Election Results

Arizona HighGround President & CEO, Chuck Coughlin, was a recent guest on KJZZ’s The Show discussing Primary Election results and Republican victory prospects heading into the November General Election.

Sitting down with KJZZ reporters, Steve Goldstein and Lauren Gilger, Coughlin provided a great assessment of the “Nightmare” or “Doomsday Slate” and the possible outcome for Trump-slate Republicans.

Coughlin did not express much confidence that candidates like Kari Lake and Mark Finchem can pivot back to the center to appeal to a broader General Election electorate. And, while the Arizona Republican Party is in a major civil war with itself, Democrats have an opportunity to pick up statewide seats in November.

Matt Salmon Exits Arizona Gubernatorial Race

Praises “The Best Staff Members, Volunteers, And Activists In Arizona”

Phoenix – Former Congressman Matt Salmon today issued the following statement to announce that he is ending his gubernatorial campaign:

Matt Salmon

“I am so proud of everything that we have been able to accomplish together over the past year. I’ve been blessed with the best staff members, volunteers, and activists in Arizona, and I will forever be grateful for the tireless work and heart-felt passion that they gave to this campaign. Our ideas changed this race for the better – there is no doubt about that.

“Unfortunately, numbers are numbers, and it has become clear to me that the path to a first-place victory is no longer a realistic possibility. Republican primary voters deserve more than having their votes split on August 2nd, and so I am leaving this race for the same reason that I entered it: Because it is what’s best for the people of Arizona.

“I will announce next steps in the coming days, but, for now, I want to reiterate my eternal gratitude for all of the Arizonans who have supported me this year. You are the backbone of this beautiful state, and I am eager to continue working with you in defense of freedom.”

Who Is ‘Securing Arizona’ PAC?

Securing Arizona PAC is a political action committee filed with the Arizona Secretary of State dedicated to maligning and attacking a longtime conservative and statesman, Rusty Bowers.

This PAC is registered with the Elections Division of the Arizona Secretary of State and has as its Chairman and Treasurer, Youssef Khalaf.

According to the most recent campaign finance reports, Securing Arizona PAC has spent $48,500 with Phoenix-based The Resolute Group and $17,355 with Delaware-based political consultants, In Field Strategies.

The most recent campaign finance trigger report (6/6/22) also shows that the PAC has not reported any contributions although the PAC has a negative cash balance of $113,210 on hand.

This same PAC is also attacking State Senator Tyler Pace, another proven East-Valley conservative while it attempts to push through other Republicans named Robert Scantlebury and David Farnsworth. Farnsworth served in the State Senate almost two years ago and retired from politics but became radicalized and joined the MAGA mob after the 2020 Election.

Pace is facing a challenge in the new legislative district 9 from Scantlebury while Bowers faces his challenge from Farnsworth in the new legislative district 10.

On paper, each candidate is in issue alignment on over 95% of conservative principles.

Disappointingly, Securing Arizona PAC is putting out blatant propaganda and lies about Bowers and Pace. If I were to speculate, it’s because both Bowers and Pace won’t bow in submission to the Big Lie, conspiracy-theorists, Trump suckups running the Arizona Republican Party. Bowers refused to go along with the hyper-MAGA subterfuge efforts down at the Arizona Legislature and even received a national award for his courage under fire.

When the next campaign finance reports are filed, we will reveal who is giving money to the Securing Arizona PAC in order to show who is orchestrating these attacks on good conservative leaders.

As I like to say, “for every political action, there is an opposite and greater than political reaction.”

Finally it should be noted that Sonoran Alliance does endorse Tyler Pace for State Senate in LD9 and Rusty Bowers for State Senate in LD10. We are certain that these two conservative Republican leaders deserve to serve in the Arizona State Senate.

Karrin Taylor Robson: Governor Ducey must sign SB1165 and SB1138 to preserve girls’ sports and protect children

Statement by Karrin Taylor Robson, Republican candidate for Arizona Governor

March 29, 2022

“Hollywood, the mainstream media and radical Left have gone mad. They would have us believe that there are infinite genders. Or that fair play can include young women competing against much larger and stronger athletes who competed as men only months earlier. During U.S. Senate hearings last week, Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee – Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson – even deflected when she was asked if she could define a woman. ‘I’m not a biologist,’ she responded.
 
“Well, I’m not a biologist, either. But I am a mom and – like most Arizonans – I still have my common sense: boys are boys, and girls are girls. The two genders typically compete separately in athletics for an obvious reason. The relative rarity of trans-athletes does not override the fact that every roster spot, scholarship and victory unfairly awarded is one less opportunity for our daughters. 
 
“Likewise, every parent knows that children are still growing physically and emotionally and are particularly susceptible to outside influences and impulsiveness. There are even cases across the country of minors being counseled on gender dysphoria without their parents’ knowledge or consent. SB 1138 appropriately protects Arizona children by limiting gender-reassignment surgeries to adults better able to weigh the consequences of their actions.
 
“Transgender Arizonans deserve respect, and my heart goes out to any young person struggling with these issues. But I also fear our society is seeing a massive increase in children claiming gender dysphoria – up 4000% among girls alone – as young people are influenced by social media, activist counselors and therapists who push life-altering interventions. Arizona families are being torn apart and our children deserve better.
 
“It is time to inject sanity back into this debate. I urge Governor Ducey to preserve girls’ sports and protect Arizona children by signing into law SB 1165 and SB 1138.”

Karrin Taylor Robson unveils plan to build upon Arizona’s history of water stewardship

Today, the Karrin for Arizona campaign released Karrin Taylor Robson’s official policy plan to secure Arizona’s water future.  
 
Taylor Robson’s decades-long experience in managing land and water resources helps inform her plan to build upon Arizona’s exceptional leadership in water stewardship, innovation and planning.
 
“One of the greatest challenges Arizona faces is to ensure we have the water necessary for future generations,” Taylor Robson said. “As Governor, I will bring my decades of experience in land use and my commitment to natural resource stewardship to help position Arizona for the next century. We will protect Arizona consumers, preserve those legacy industries so vital to our economy and defend our Arizona way of life.”
 
The Taylor Robson plan is built upon three key principles:
 

  • Protect Arizona Consumers

Arizonans must have access to a safe, reliable and affordable water supply. Anything less is unacceptable.

  • Preserve Legacy Industries

Legacy industries such as agriculture, ranching, mining and logging are critical drivers of jobs and economic activity, as well as inextricably linked to Arizona’s Western heritage and culture. We must ensure these legacy industries not only survive but thrive in the future.

  • Defend Our Arizona Way of Life

Rugged … independent … self-reliant. The “Arizona way of life” means something different to everyone. What we have in common is our need for water to support our families and community.

Chairman Bill Gates Participates In “Defending American Democracy” Panel

Maricopa County Chairman Bill Gates, District 3

Attacks on democratic institutions and election officials are the biggest threat facing our country today, according to Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates. 

“When people attempt to undermine a democratic election, it puts at risk everything we take for granted in a free country,” said Chairman Bill Gates, Supervisor District 3. “Security, speech, and economic progress. That’s why Maricopa County has not been silent, and that’s why we will not be silent in the face of lies.”

Gates was one of several panelists who participated in the McCain Institute’s second “Defending American Democracy” panel.  Gates has made running secure elections and defending democracy a pillar of his Chairmanship.  He provided his perspective today alongside Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson; Pasco County, Florida Elections Supervisor Brian Corley; and Executive Director of the Center for Election Innovation and Research, David Becker.

“We’re proud to have one of the most robust voting systems in country, where you can vote by mail, you can vote early, and you can vote at the polls,” said Gates. “The Arizona GOP wants to change early voting.  Attempts to put that genie back in the bottle undermine our voting system and are bad politics.”

The conversation focused largely on what can be done about the misinformation that has led some Americans to believe elections are rigged and massive fraud is affecting outcomes. This is not the case and no credible evidence supports those conclusions.  False claims about the 2020 election led to unprecedented threats on election officials and workers, including Gates, his fellow board members, and Maricopa County elections staff. 

“I am called a traitor on a daily basis for doing my job,” Gates added. “Many people have said we’re opposed to audits, but that is simply not true. We’re opposed to extra-legal audits that follow no statutes or plan on how they would occur. That is what was done by the Arizona Senate, and it should never happen again.” 

Maricopa County has consistently refuted falsehoods and shared facts about election administration in the nation’s fastest-growing county.  A website, JustTheFacts.vote, compiles much of this information.
