Politics on the Rocks is always looking to help support local charities. We have teamed up with the Salvation Army in efforts to raise awareness for the proposed new Kroc Center which will be approximately 130,000 square feet with additional sports utility fields and will offer services and programs for all age groups, from young toddlers to senior citizens, and catering to entire families. The primary areas of focus will be: the Arts, Recreation, Education, Spiritual Guidance and Wellness. The new Kroc Community Center will open in late Fall 2011.
The Salvation Army needs our help on securing the remaining $3.5 million in order to complete the campaign and will need support from the community to reach that goal. The Phoenix Kroc project was recently awarded a “challenge grant” for the last $3.5 million, with every dollar raised within the community being matched by the Kroc grant with an additional dollar – so the amazing 4 to 1 match will now grow even more! For more information on the Kroc project please visit their YouTube channel and their website.


Please feel free to invite friends, co-workers, and fellow networkers to our free event on July 15th.
Regards,
Charles A. Jensen

  1. Marcus Kelley says

    PotR is scraping the bottom of the barrel for guests. I wouldn’t attend a meeting with that RINO if I were highly paid to do so.

  2. The Dems Are Calling You Home says

    Marcus- Go join the Dems…they are calling you home

  3. Marcus you have a choice. A new group is showcasing J.D. on the West Side, same evening same time. Word is out you may order Coll Aid.

  4. One way ticket says

    Looks like it’s time for Marcus to buy a one way ticket out of town. Face it bud, you have 4 years with Jan leading your Republican Party. Don’t like it-leave because it’s not changing.
    And don’t start with the she can’t beat Goddard crap I’ve seen your type say. What kind of republican do you claim to be? It is what it is, get over it and start working for the party.

  5. nightcrawler says

    Marcus,

    You were making such nice progress in your taped interviews and now this…

    I know you want Tea-Party street cred by calling everyone short of John Birch a RINO, but this is the GOP.

    Most Right Wing Conservatives (which I am not) are Republicans. Not all Republicans (which I am) are Right Wing Conservatives. That is a fact and will not change despite what some might say.

    From where I sit Brewer is a conservative. You have no stronger advocate for the Right to Life. She is tough on immigration. You may not like the tax issue, but it was necessary. She supports the 2nd amendment.

    If you won’t vote for Brewer, than who will you vote for ?

    May I direct you the the MCRC resolution crafted a few years back regarding loyalty to the party. Take one for the team.

  6. One way ticket says

    Nightcrawler is right except for one part. Taking one for the team is what you do when there are options but it’s clear Brewer wins. Being part of the party and working to unify is the ONLY option when it’s just Brewer vs Goddard.
    The tax issue is also interesting. I voted against it but just found out that more Republicans votes for it then Democrats. Can’t argue with that one.

  7. Marcus Kelley says

    @nightcrawler

    You are wrong on Brewer and immigration. Besides merely signing 1070, she has no record on immigration. She didn’t want to sign the bill and didn’t until she dropped a poll on it AND Sheriff Joe threatened to run against her if she didn’t sign it. She’s insincere on immigration and is riding a gravy train. It makes me sick.

    As for taxes, you are patently wrong. There were PLENTY of alternatives, but Brewer REFUSED ANY course of action EXCEPT a tax increase. That’s not conservative.

    As for who I’m going to vote for in the general election, I’ll either be writing in Mickey Mouse, because he’d be a better candidate than the lobbyist-controlled Brewer or I’ll be looking at the Libertarian candidate, whoever it might be.

    @Dems
    You’re on crack.

    @Horst
    Kool Aid? This from the guy who likes to parade around naked with little children? This from the guy who sucks up to any RINO that comes his way? You can speak to me when you have ANY credibility, understood?

    @One Way
    Many Republicans refused to “work with the party” in 2006 and 2008 because they had lost their way. In this state, Arizona Republicans are STILL exhibiting that they don’t “get it” that we DEMAND unwavering conservatism. What type of Republican am I? I’m type that will kick the party in the teeth until they return to their principles and stick to them without exception.

  8. Jack Hammer says

    Marcus, or until the AZ GOP ceases to be the “stupid wing” of the single, rotten bird which is now a metaphor for the American political establishment!

  9. nightcrawler says

    Marcus,

    You are a true Conservative, but not a true Republican.

    I do recall a similar situation in 2006, some members of the GOP decided they didn’t like the primary winner and despite being PCs, publicly advocated for his opponent.

    They were called “Republicans for Napolitano”. That was wrong and was addressed at the next MCRC meeting. Since you will either vote for Mickey Mouse or the Libertarian candidate, hence a vote for the Democrat Goddard, you sir, are no different in practice and/or result and are therefore a RINO by definition.

    As a producer of several election related videos and as a consultant, you need to be held to a higher standard. I believe you do provide a good service for the GOP voters. Don’t betray the candidates you interviewed, the viewers and your party by bashing Brewer you are better than that.

  10. Marcus Kelley says

    Sorry, Nichtcrawler, I identify with Rep. Mike Pence’s (R-IN) statement: I am a Christian, a Conservative and a Republican, in that order.” If I’m not supporting the Republican party, it’s because it is not conservative enough and has betrayed its principles. In fact, I have long hated the RNC and the state party for failing to support the most conservative candidates in the various races. Establishment “Republicans” are anything but. I refuse to be pro-establishment because the current Republican establishment in Arizona is anti-conservative. Just look at our self-styled “titular leader” Juan McAmnesty and his shill Brewer.

    As for your canard that a vote for anyone but Brewer is a vote for Goddard in the general election, the Republican masses didn’t buy that load in 2008 and I don’t buy it now. This is a free country, we have a secret ballot, and I’ll vote for whom I please. In my estimation, that will be the most conservative candidate. Unless a lot of candidates start dying in this state, it won’t be Brewer.

    In Brewer’s case she has betrayed Republican principles by refusing to accept any alternatives but raising taxes, increasing spending with line item vetoes, suing the state legislature to get the budget she wanted, failing to eject all of Napolitano’s staffers from government the instant she took office, dithering on keeping Arizona in the Western States Initiative, being controlled by lobbyists and special interests, failing to sign SB 1070 without first dropping a poll and having the threat of Joe Arpaio running against her, lying in bed with Coughlin and trying to enrich his clients to the citizens’ detriment, headhunting solar firms instead of allowing the free market decide what our economy looks like, forcing her department heads to spin nightmare scenarios to scar the public with what 15% cuts will look like, etc., etc., etc. She is a HORRID candidate and the party is doing itself a GREAT disservice by rallying behind her.

    Consider this heresy, but I really don’t care. Sometimes Republicans NEED to lose before they realize they’ve drifted too far left. They don’t get it otherwise. Just take a look at the state of national politics now. Republicans are trying to move right after being VERY left wing under Bush. Had they stayed right in the first place, they never would have lost power. My advice is meant to keep Republicans in power. How is that NOT loyal to the party? The rank-and-file and the Brewer administration won’t get it until they’re wandering in the wilderness like we are at the national level. Even then, had the Republicans REALLY understood the message of 2006 & 2008, ALL moderate leadership would have been swept aside and only conservatives would be in office now.

    In other words, I could disagree with you more, Nightcrawler.

    As for Grassroots Interviews, I’ll be interviewing all Republican candidates that won their primaries and will be inviting them to draw strong contrasts between themselves and their opponents. Tell me, how is THAT disloyal?

  11. Marcus Kelley says

    Sorry, Nichtcrawler, I identify with Rep. Mike Pence’s (R-IN) statement: I am a Christian, a Conservative and a Republican, in that order.” Who would accuse Mike Pence of not being a Republican? If I’m not supporting the Republican party, it’s because it is not conservative enough and has betrayed its principles. In fact, I have long hated the RNC and the state party for failing to support the most conservative candidates in the various races, misspending our money, and in general making really dumb decisions. Establishment “Republicans” are anything but. I refuse to be pro-establishment because the current Republican establishment in Arizona is anti-conservative. Just look at our self-styled “titular leader” Juan McAmnesty and his shill Brewer.

    As for your canard that a vote for anyone but Brewer is a vote for Goddard in the general election, the Republican masses didn’t buy that load in 2008 and I don’t buy it now. This is a free country, we have a secret ballot, and I’ll vote for whom I please. In my estimation, that will be the most conservative candidate. Unless a lot of candidates start dying in this state, it won’t be Brewer.

    I’ll NEVER vote for or endorse a Democrat, but I promise you that if the Republican candidate is a RINO like Brewer or Juan McAmnesty, I’ll find a more conservative candidate so fast it will make your head spin. While living in VA, in the 2008 general, I voted for Bob Barr. Yep, the conservative guy who is riding to the rescue here in AZ. Did my vote make a difference? Nope. The incompetent McLame lost VA anyway and by FAR more than my 1 vote. Remember, that’s one the the main charges against Juan McAmnesty: he attacks conservatives more than he does Democrats.

    In Brewer’s case she has betrayed Republican principles by refusing to accept any alternatives but raising taxes, increasing spending with line item vetoes, suing the state legislature to get the budget she wanted, failing to eject all of Napolitano’s staffers from government the instant she took office, dithering on withdrawing Arizona from the Western States Initiative, being controlled by lobbyists and special interests, failing to sign SB 1070 without first dropping a poll and having the threat of Joe Arpaio running against her, lying in bed with Coughlin and trying to enrich his clients to the citizens’ detriment, headhunting solar firms instead of allowing the free market decide what our economy looks like, forcing her department heads to spin nightmare scenarios to scare the public with what 15% cuts will look like, etc., etc., etc. She is a HORRID candidate and the party is doing itself a GREAT disservice by rallying behind her.

  12. Marcus Kelley says

    Sorry for the double post. The later should have been the only post made.

  13. nightcrawler says

    Marcus,

    You are loyal, to Conservative ideology and likeminded people. You do benefit the voting public by making your videos. Please keep doing so. By your own admission, you are not loyal to the RNC and and AZ GOP and that is ok, just don’t get involved in the organization of the party. Cheer from the stands and stay off the field if you can’t wear the jersey for every game.

    As for the canard, well that is the same argument JD uses against Deakin.

    Whenever you get a large group of people together, of any sort, there will be disagreement. No two people think exactly alike. To expect unwavering loyalty to your magic list of Conservative ideals is a fool’s errand and frankly a lazy approach to complex issues.

    Take your stand on no new taxes, period. Have you ever considered that additional tax revenue isn’t only to cover expenses but also can be invested to make the entire community benefit ? We need more businessmen/women in office. Public servants, elected officials and the ever present pilot fish (CQ, Sproul, Rose, you etc) who swim around them to get their financial nutrition indirectly from the taxpayer lake. These folks tend have a very myopic view of the world. They are takers and complainers not creators and inventors. Our society is great because of innovation, risk taking and entrepreneurship. The lobbyists you like to bash are simply trying to get government to leave them alone so they make create and build more. Capitalism and the lure of big rewards to risk takers is what made the US great, not a bunch of laws that state what we cannot do. The GOP has lost its way, it has abandoned the business community, especially in Arizona.

    SB1070 is legally correct and will be a tipping point in US history, no question. From a business perspective it was a disaster which will be felt in these parts for a very long time. We collectively fell on our sword at the behest of a few legislators.

    Our population is aging, and yes there is work most Americans will not do in 115 degree heat. We need a guest worker program to make sure we have a workforce that is ready and able to assist in a recovery.

    Why not allow the people who are already here a change to serve proudly in the US armed forces to prove their loyalty and reward them with citizenship ? Is not dying for your new country not enough ? We can barely get enough of our own youth to enlist.

    I could go on and on, especially about the hard right’s take on social issues and how ignorance is dividing us and pushing the GOP toward extinction, but that is for another time.

    Suffice it to say, we don’t agree all the time. The most vocal are not the most numerous, a lesson several conservatives are learning.

  14. Antifederalist says

    Nightcrawler,
    This will be my last post on the subject. We’re not going to see eye-to-eye on this, you’re wrong, and it’s taking up too much of my time.

    Once again, I couldn’t disagree with you more. In fact, the more I read your post and write against it the more astounded about exactly how wrong you are.

    I am a PC and will remain a PC. If I get kicked out, I’ll run for re-election and win and make them kick me out again. My goal is to change the organization from the inside and there is a concerted movement, of which I am a part, to drag the party to the right from the inside. In the end, while you claim that conservatism is divisive, we have proof that it’s not: when Republicans act like Democrats, we lose, when we act like Republicans, we win. THAT is my I expect the party to put conservatives in leadership and moderates to be swept aside, for the party’s own good and for it to stay in power.

    The difference between JD using the analysis vs. Deakin and me using it against Brewer or Juan McAmnesty is that Hayworth is correct. There is a possibility that Deakin could act as a spoiler and if we want our senior disappointment gone from office, we need to rally behind the candidate most likely to pick the grizzled liberal off. That ain’t Deakin. In my case, my vote for Barr in 2008 didn’t hurt McLame in the slightest. Barr didn’t even come close to being the margin of loss for Juan. Much to my chagrin, unless there are major changes between now & August 24 (unlikely, but possible), my vote for someone other than Brewer isn’t going to hurt her. If you believe the latest polls, even if I voted for someone else come November 2, the dumb old hag is likely to win in the general election.

    Sorry, I don’t just oppose tax increases, I expect taxes to be reduced. Reducing our tax burdens will grow jobs, expand the tax base, increase revenue, and allow those who earn dollars to spend them as they see fit. In case you slept through that portion of economics class, that’s called economic efficiency. When government takes our dollars, that’s called wealth destruction.

    Now, all but the most ardent Libertarians will agree that there are a couple of valid purposes for government and we can tolerate the government taking our money at gunpoint for those reason. Government CAN use our tax dollars for those public reasons and, yes, they can make us all richer. If government limited itself to those purposes, it would be tolerated, but it doesn’t. Show me a government and I’ll show you waste, fraud & abuse.

    Your assertion that consultants don’t produce anything is total bunk. Not only do we produce advice, but a good bit of writing for our candidates as well. If those weren’t valuable services and candidates weren’t willing to exchange their dollars (public or private) for our services, then those transactions wouldn’t take place. Because candidates value their dollars less and our services more, they make wealth-creating exchanges. I’d also say that we are innovators. The campaign game is constantly changing and innovative new ideas about how to campaign are always being created. Any consultant being self-employed and hanging out his own shingle is not only a risk-taker but an entrepreneur.

    Lobbyists don’t just try to get government to leave them alone. Not by a long shot. Lobbyists ask for special treatment for their interests all the time: special tax breaks, subsidies, protectionist laws, etc.

    What I find utterly laughable is that you bash me for being a conservative, then you herald the free market line. You praise moderates yet they’re not free market. You REALLY need to reassess not only the lense through which you view politics, but ensure that your statements don’t contradict themselves. I’m the rabid free marketeer, buddy. I’m the fan of the law & economics movement. However, you, sir, are the myopic one who fails to see the moderates you are protecting here are the one destroying the very system you are heralding. Let’s take John Nelson for example. That old, entrenched RINO CONSISTENTLY receives D’s and F’s for voting to regulate the economy and therefore killing the innovation and wealth-creation you yammer on about. That’s proof that the moderates run counter to what you want.

    We fell on our swords alright with 1070 and the damage is that we’re likely to wind up with 4 years of a dumb moderate in the governor’s office, or worse, a socialist.

    I’ve just got to laugh, one minute you try to make this big tent argument, then you kick your own tent-poles down, then you go right back to the pro-moderate argument. Path to citizenship for lawbreakers? Guest worker program when we have 10% employment for as far as we can project into the future? Those are loser issues. You’re the worst mouthpiece for the moderates. You confuse moderate vs. conservative principles, then you dredge up the weakest issues.

    I’m done with this thread. Say what you will.

  15. Matt Salmon essentially caused a lot of Republicans to leave the party, even if temporarily, and endorse Napolitano. It’s not like the group called themselves “Conservatives for Napolitano.”

    Brewer may get every conservative’s vote in a one-on-one against Goddard, but I still reserve the right, as does Marcus, to criticize her relentlessly.

    The tax hike was not necessary. The welfare state is not necessary. Ask Chad Kirkpartrick if his job is “necessary.”

  16. nightcrawler says

    Marcus,

    I too will rest my case and put an end to this diatribe for the sake of the readers.
    I have posted along side Antifederalist for years and am happy to learn it is you. Looking back at many of your posts, you do have Libertarian tendencies, embrace them.

    I leave you with this thought until next time..

    Free market principles are not owned by Conservatives alone. It is okay to mix and match issues. One size does not fit all. The world and the people in it are complex. Not everything fits into neat boxes all lined up.

  17. Nowadays, many types of nursery beddings are available in market for little babies just to provide them easy and comfortable sleeping; all such beddings are available in different sizes, shapes, styles and qualities. Which store is the best for baby girl nursery bedding?
