BISHOP OLMSTED LAUNCHES COUNTER-OFFENSIVE AGAINST SECULARISM, SEXUAL REVOLUTION WITH ‘INTO THE BREACH’

PHX

From LifeSiteNews

“… Bishop Olmsted issued “Into the Breach” yesterday, an Apostolic Exhortation in which he condemns gender ideology and the Sexual Revolution, saying it is a very real spiritual battle that is, “killing the remaining Christian ethos in our society and culture, and even in our own homes.”

“The world is under attack by Satan,” the Arizona bishop states, “as our Lord said it would be (1 Peter 5:8-14). This battle is occurring in the Church herself, and the devastation is all too evident.”

Bishop Olmsted has been a vocal defender of life and Church teaching on sexuality.

“How did it come about that a culture so steadfast in supporting marriage and spousal commitment two generations ago became a culture that has reduced sexuality to mere pleasure and self-serving ends?” he asks, answering that it is the Sexual Revolution, which has “ushered in the scourge of abortion, pornography, and sexual abuse so rampant in recent decades.”

The Sexual Revolution has given fake freedom, he says, and undermined the family.

“Instead of real and authentic love, this false ‘liberty’ offers cheap pleasures that mask a deeper loneliness and pain,” states Bishop Olmsted. “Instead of the security of traditional family bonds, it leaves children longing for the stability of a mother’s and a father’s love.”

The Revolution also violates Natural Law, according to the bishop, and has failed in its purpose.

“Instead of the freedom that comes with accepting the truth of God’s design for human love between a man and woman, the Sexual Revolution has arrogantly rebelled against human nature, a nature that will never thrive in confusion and lack of self-control,” he continues. “Indeed, the ‘love’ promised by the Sexual Revolution has never been found.”

“In its wake is wreckage, countless broken hearts bound by fear of more pain, broken lives, broken homes, broken dreams and broken belief that love is even possible,” the bishop says. “This is the rotten fruit of the Sexual Revolution”…

 

While the Apostolic Exhortation is targeted towards Catholic men, it is a must read for all people of faith, especially men.  It’s inspiring to hear a prominent man of the cloth speak so boldly about Truths that need to be spoken and debunking the lies the Secularists are peddling today in our schools, our media, and pop culture.

We at ArizonaInformer would like to extend our gratitude to Bishop Olmsted and the Phoenix Diocese for their steadfast leadership in guiding Catholics (and everyone of goodwill) out of the darkness of Secularism and into the Light and Truth that can only be found in Jesus Christ.

Reps Franks, Schweikert, Salmon, McSally Vote to Fund Obama’s Executive Amnesty

gop_surrender_monkey_1_400_pxlw The House has voted 257-167 to pass what the Leftist media is calling a ‘Clean’ DHS Funding Bill which fully funds Obama’s unconstitutional Executive Amnesty.   While the majority of the 257 Congressmen and women who passed the bill were Democrats, this falls on the feet of all those who voted to retain John Boehner as the Speaker of the House.

It was only a few months ago that hundreds of thousands of Americans jammed the US Capitol’s switchboard demanding a change in house leadership due to Boehner’s unwillingness to stop Obama’s move toward ‘fundamental transformation’. These calls and emails were ignored by establishment Republicans namely Rep Trent Franks, Rep Schweikert, Rep Matt Salmon, and Rep Martha McSally who chose Boehner’s PAC money over the American tax-payers.  For several years now these same politicians have told us at LD meetings or Tea Party rallies that ‘DC is broken’ and they need our support.  Well, to borrow a phrase from Pottery Barn, ‘you broke it, you bought it’.

By keeping the current leadership in place these Republicans are just as responsible for the passage of today’s Amnesty funding bill just as much those who actively lobbied for it. We’ll say it again for clarity; Mr Franks, Mr Schweikert, Mr Salmon, Mrs McSally, You. Own. This. Crap. Sandwich.

How do we make the claim these four voted for Obama’s Amnesty?  To know this, you must learn one of the procedural games the GOP Leadership play all too often:

    INSIDE BASEBALL: HOW DC PLAYS YOU

The House Leadership forwards whatever the Chamber of Commerce wants while simultaneously trying to pacify the base.  That’s where things like the pointless ACU ‘scores’ come in to play.  Let’s take today’s vote for example:

  • STAGE 1 – THE DISTRACTION: Boehner decides in mid Feb that this bill should be postponed until today during the fog of Netanyahu’s speech in order to mitigate the number of grassroots phone-calls to DC offices.  They are betting that we’d be too distracted fighting the Anti-Semites on the Left today.
  • STAGE 2 – THE BROKEN PROMISE: Knowing that he could not get the support of a majority of Republicans, he strikes a deal with Pelosi for a Clean Bill in violation of his Hastert Rule promise.
  • STAGE 3 – QUID PRO QUO: After a backroom deal is struck with the Dems, Boehner creates a strategy with Pelosi to use ‘regular order’ to ensure the bill gets passed in spite of the results of the 2014 elections.
  • STAGE 4 – WHIPPING UP SUPPORT: Pelosi then dispatches House Dem Whips to do a head count to ensure Boehner gets the votes to pass Obama’s Amnesty without GOP support.  Pelosi tells Boehner they have votes needed plus a little extra for padding
  • STAGE 5 – THE SHOW VOTE: GOP Leadership calls a closed-door conference to give border hawks the green light on voting ‘NO’ knowing it will pass anyway.  This way the Leadership/Chamber gets what they want and the faux-Conservatives keep their bona fides among the grassroots come election time.
  • STAGE 6 – RIGGING THE NUMBERS: The ‘Border Hawks’ vote NO knowing they can do so without jeopardizing Boehner’s plan.  It’s little more than a show vote done so representatives can be graded on a single vote as ‘SOLID’ and be able to tout their valued ACU/Club For Growth, FreedomWorks/Whatever org scores in campaign ads while screwing the American tax-payer under the radar. We now know that it is far worse to support a Speaker who does this than a faux-NO vote on a bill that has been predetermined by the donor class to pass.
  • STAGE 7 – THE BAIT & SWITCH: Come election time, they tell us that they voted AGAINST Amnesty and that we NEED them to stay in DC to ‘fight for us’, with the truth being that nothing will change while they remain in DC.  This is precisely how someone like John McCain can serve (themselves) in office for decades as things get worse.

The well-fed right will state “THIS HEADLINE IS DISHONEST! Schweikert, Franks, et al actually voted against this bill, blah.. blah.. blah…” but in reality, now that we know similar parliamentary tricks were practiced with regularity under Speaker Boehner before his reelection in January and since these representatives voted to retain GOP leadership, it’s reasonable to conclude those who backed Boehner for Speaker approve of these tactics and the results. Therefore, we at ArizonaInformer will now score EVERY unpopular bill that Speaker Boehner passes from the floor and will publicize them as a YES vote for the Representatives mentioned above.

*UPDATED* – A TIME FOR CHOOSING! Will AZ Republicans Side With Boehner or The People?

**[UPDATE: Earlier this evening Rep Paul Gosar came out with the following statement declaring he will vote AGAINST Boehner on Tuesday:

“Trust is a series of promises kept; my vote for new leadership reflects a promise I made to voters when they elected me,” Gosar said. “I cannot stand beside the same leadership that has offered up bills too large to read, used parliamentary tricks to bring bills to the floor and has refused to take swift action against the president and his administration’s unconstitutional actions.”]

In an exclusive interview on Fox News this morning, Texas Republican Louis Gohmert announced that he is joining Florida Republican Ted Yoho in challenging John Boehner for the Speakership.

Both candidates echo the sentiment of the grassroots that Speaker Boehner has nothing but a track record of failed leadership and missed opportunities since taking the gavel in 2011.  His unwillingness to use the power of the purse to reign in Obama in addition to his broken promises that he gave in 2012 to use of ‘Regular Order’ and the Hastert Rule are primary reasons that leave him vulnerable to a challenge.

 

 

It is being reported that GOP establishment staffers have been instructed to lie to their constituents telling them that a vote for someone other than Boehner means that Nancy Pelosi can be elected Speaker.   This is simply untrue and shows the establishment’s contempt for the American voter.  In order to win the gavel, a candidate must receive a majority of all the votes cast.  If Boehner does not win on the 1st ballot, then there will be a second ballot, and a third ballot until one Republican gets to the 50%+1 mark.

Where do Arizona’s Republican Congressmen stand on Boehner?  At the time of this post, not a single Arizona Republican congressman has publicly stated if they will support or oppose Boehner for his 3rd term.

Since the rise of the Tea Party in 2009, AZ Tea Partiers have heard Rep Schweikert, Rep Franks, Rep Gosar, and Rep Salmon tout their Conservative ‘street-cred’ in word and activists see this week is the time for action.  Many view this vote on House leadership as the only way they will see real measurable change in DC over the next 2 years.

Will the Arizona Republican Delegation join Rep. Thomas Massie and Oklahoma Republican Jim Bridenstine and side with the Conservative base?  Or will they side with the ineffective, inept, and complicit GOP leadership? Arizona voters will find out Tuesday when Congress votes — until then,  give them a call or a tweet and make your voice heard.

Note: the primary Hashtag on Twitter is #FireBoehner

(We did not include Martha McSally in the contact list above.  This is largely due to TeamBoehner and the Chamber of Crony-Capitalism placing a vast amount of financial resources behind her campaign.  With that being the case, we believe she will side with the GOP establishment over the grassroots)

UNCIVIL WAR! McCain Purging Conservatives From AZGOP

John_McCain

SEN.JOHN MCCAIN | Photo: JillGreenberg.com

ArizonaInformer has learned from published reports and interviews with several precinct committeemen that TeamMcCain is attempting to remake the AZGOP in his image prior to his reelection bid for Senate.

In recent months precinct committeemen around the state have been solicited by a group called ‘Arizona Grassroots Action PAC’ which is, oddly enough, based in the Beltway according to OpenSecrets.  Conservative PCs allege this is being done to support McCain-approved candidates for precinct committeemen in order for these PCs to support Liberal Republicans for Legislative District leadership positions and subsequently, State Committeemen who can vote for AZGOP leadership.

This hijacking of the AZGOP comes as no surprise for many Conservative activists as Jon Kyl tipped his hand in this Hill.com article where Kyl was asked to respond to the AZGOP censuring McCain.  Kyl’s response indicates this campaign was well thought out in advance.

 “I think you’ll see a different party make-up after the primary election. There will be a new group of precinct committeemen. I don’t think you’ll see many of the same old faces” ~ Jon Kyl

In the next several weeks, Legislative Districts will be holding their mandatory organizational meetings which will decide the direction of the local party organizations and the state party for the next 2 years.  If you are a ‘Tea Party Republican’, or a ‘Reagan Conservative’, it may be best to get involved in the local level political structure to ensure the Arizona Republican Party remains, well, Republican.

ArizonaInformer will monitor this story and update as the situation warrants.

Senator David Schweikert?

Rollcall is reporting that David Schweikert is mulling over the idea of launching a primary challenge against Pro-Muslim Brotherhood, pro-Amnesty, unpopular, liberal Republican John McCain.

If Schweikert runs, he will be a formidable challenger with a strong chance to unseat McCain.   David Schweikert, who has a stellar 97% rating from the grassroots organization Conservative Review, is well positioned to garner most Conservative activists who do the hard work of door-knocking in addition to establishment gadfly organizations such as Senate Conservatives Fund, FreedomWorks, and several others that can help fund a strong campaign against the liberal Republican Senator.

David Schweikert

With the grassroots up in arms after President Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty power-grab tonight, Arizona is itching to back a fighter that would join the Constitutional Conservative Stable of Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and newly-elected Senators Ben Sasse, and Joni Ernst in the Senate and Schweikert fits the mold.

“My wife and I made an agreement that we would wait until after the holidays, and then we would have a family meeting,” Schweikert told CQ Roll Call in between votes Tuesday, his wife by his side. “The whole thing: whether you’re gonna run at all over again, do you weigh options for other things.”

As this news breaks, several Conservative activists in Arizona have begun contacting one another to build a grassroots framework to offset the deep pockets of career politician John McCain. Conservative activists expect McCain to use his deep pockets in the Primary to carpet-bomb the airwaves with a negative ad campaign which he would never run against any Democrat.

 

David Schweikert speaking at FreedomWorks “Free the People” event in 2013:


We just had a moment imagining Schweikert making a similar speech about Individual Liberty, the Framers, and the Constitution in the Senate Chamber.    All we gotta say is — RUN DAVID, RUN!

Arizona Liberty Project 2nd Annual Reagan Day Celebration Dinner with Herman Cain

OBAMACARE: A Panel Discussion at the Goldwater Institute

FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE

A Panel Discussion: OBAMACARE

Phoenix, AZ – On Wednesday, February 8, 2012, Arizona Mainstream Project (AMP) will bring to the public a panel discussion on Obamacare.  Speaking on this panel will be Goldwater Institute’s Senior Attorney Diane Cohen and Director – Center for Economic Prosperity Byron Schlomach, Dr. Jeff Singer, and former AZ Congressman John Shadegg.  550 KFYI Talk Host Terry Gilberg will be the moderator for the discussion.

Each panel member will share their personal expertise and direct involvement with uncovering the facts about The Affordable Care Act and how it has begun and will continue to negatively impact the lives of ALL Americans.  You will gain a better understanding of this law and how it applies to your access to health care, the current legal battles, and how you can help stop this anti-American and socialistic agenda.

Diane Cohen:

The Affordable Care Act mandated states to establish insurance exchanges by 2014 or have exchanges set up by HHS. These exchanges are nothing more than invitation-only clubs where only government sanctioned insurers can play. They must meet all the federally mandated medical coverages/benefits specified by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. In an effort to preserve some sovereignty, states, even some who opposed the federal healthcare law, including Arizona, are rushing to get federal money to set up these exchanges. Diane Cohen, Senior Attorney, of the Goldwater Institute will refute this notion.  Ms. Cohen has testified before Congress on the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). She will explain what effect this fifteen-member board of political appointees will have in our future.

Dr. Byron Schlomach:

Byron will discuss how government is at the root of our problems in health care, making it the problem, not the solution. He will show you how our income tax system plays a major role in determining what our health care system looks like and how it operates.

Dr. Jeff Singer:

Dr. Singer will discuss the ways in which “Obamacare” will affect the patient doctor relationship, the relationship of the doctor with the state, the relationship of the patient with the state, the loss of personal autonomy, and the ultimate decrease in quality and rationing of heath care that will inevitably result from “Obamacare.”

John Shadegg:

President Obama promised that the cost of health care would go down and it hasn’t. A recent HHS press release acknowledged that premiums have gone up by as much as 12.8% in the last year after the rates were reviewed by state bureaucrats under the provisions of Obamacare. Obama has also promised that if you liked your health care plan, you could keep it. Yet, we now know that Obamacare mandates will not allow anyone to keep the plan they had. As the nation’s economy struggles, Obamacare increases taxes by 800 billion dollars and crushes jobs. Learn how free market solutions will reform health care in ways that promotes quality and reduces costs for all Americans.

Idaho legislator Curtis Bowers has produced a fascinating film uncovering the people and groups that have successfully targeted America’s morality and freedom in their effort to grind America down. Mr. Bowers looks at the subversion of America, the systematic “grinding down” of American culture and values over several decades – a process nearing its climax today. AGENDA is the most powerful expose of the communist, socialist, progressive attempt to take over the United States of America.

Dr. David A. Noebel, who is featured in this award winning documentary film, will be in attendance and available for questions from the audience. Dr. Noebel recently retired and moved to Prescott after serving 50 years as the founder and head of The Summit Ministries. He remains as President of the organization founded by Dr. Fred C.
