Did She Really Tweet That? Tweets Reveal Christine Jones’ Position on Issues, People

All these revelations about Christine Jones’ flip-flopping and pandering on border security and immigration got us wondering if Ms. Jones may have made public statements in the past on other issues or about individuals that may come back to haunt her?

So of course, we explored the usual places – Google search, online news outlets, social media, etc – and what we found on her Twitter feed was very eye-opening.

(Side note: Let this be a lesson for anyone seeking a political job - especially one in which your statements are written in electronic concrete and the court of public opinion tries the candidate.)

Now one would think that the lead counsel for a high-profile internet company would know better than to leave comments and her digital fingerprints all over the web – especially if the thought of running for a high profile public office ever crossed her mind.  Or, perhaps this lack of political online savviness reveals more about her not-ready-for-primetime capacity? Nevertheless, what we discovered contradicts what her campaign is trying to present to Republican voters.

Here’s what we found:

All along, we suspected that Christine Jones was not Tea Party material. That became evident in a series of tweets in which she ridiculed or jabbed at the movement or its leaders:

In this tweet, Jones is shocked that longtime establishment Republican Senator Richard Lugar is defeated by a Tea-Party-backed candidate (Richard Mourdock) in the Indiana GOP Primary:

Christine Jones on Lugar

Jones also let us know how she felt about former Alaska Governor, VP candidate and Tea Party favorite Sarah Palin when she tweeted this in response to another tweet:

Jones Palin

Jones’ tweet essentially ridicules Sarah Palin’s educational background and her capacity to lead.

In this next tweet, Jones tells us what she thinks about Ron Paul and his supporters:

Jones Ron Paul

And we know now that she is no fan of conservative talk show icon Rush Limbaugh when she affirmed Anderson Cooper’s shot at him:

Jones Rush

Then there’s Maricopa Sheriff Joe Arpaio who she rolled her eyes when she tweeted this:

Jones Arpaio

And to add on to some prior posts, here’s what Jones said about Governor Brewer deciding on the fate of SB1070:

Jones SB1070

But wait! There’s more!

Did you know that as early as December, 2009 and January, 2010, Jones was advocating for repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and passage of gay marriage? Here’s a tweet in which she engaged John McCain’s daughter Meghan McCain in a conversation over same sex marriage.

Jones Gay Marriage JonesDOMA

What flows out from the use of a Twitter handle reveals what flow forth from the heart of a potential gubernatorial candidate. Christine Jones is not who she says she is and conservative Republicans should heed the words tweeted from this candidate before she fools voters and leads Arizona in the wrong direction.




Arizona Ron Paul Delegates Break Ranks with National Ron Paul Supporters Before Scheduled Protest

Sonoran Alliance received the following letter from an Arizona Ron Paul delegate in anticipation of a planned protest this evening at the Republican National Convention:


Open Letter to My Fellow RP Delegates,

My name is Edward Vallejo, and I am currently the Organizer of the Phoenix Ron Paul for President MeetUp Group – the first of it’s kind.  It was created in February of 2007, a full month before the good Congressman even declared, by a man named Philly Dave Gallagher, Activist in the Phoenix Area.  He created it because those engaged in the Cause of Liberty in Arizona saw what was coming, and knew that the people would need a place to gather and coordinate, for which the Internet and MeetUp were the perfect medium of communication without external control.  I began organizing the Group a couple of months later when I arrived because of my skills with coordinating efforts.

I am a United States Army veteran – and Signal Corps Honor Graduate, and my Permanent duty was with the 36th Medical Detachment (HA) out of Ft. Polk, La. as a radio-telephone operator, tasked with the overall coordination of missions, crews, and equipment for which lives depended – thus making me a natural for the position I now hold.

Being a past National Delegate for the Libertarian Party in 2008 and 2010, I am familiar with the process in which I am currently engaged here at the 2012 Republican National Convention – in this beautiful city of Tampa.

I understand there are grievances by many of my fellow Delegates that staunchly support Congressman Paul.  I understand your feelings probably more acutely than anyone present.  I ask you to hear me out.

Dr. Paul told us that the greatest good can only be done from within – that’s why he had us join the Republican Party – to spread the message of Liberty, and to not just build the Party – but become the Party.  Populate it with law-abiding, liberty-loving individuals.  Run for office.  Do as much good as you can there.  Make your Country better.

Keep it non-violent.

And that’s what you did.  You worked and fought and worked some more and fundraised, and now you are a good portion of the Republican Party – and you are everywhere.  Many of you have gone to great pains to work out relationships with many good people in the GOP.  Will you throw out all their hard efforts by airing your grievances at this time?  Will it gain you anything positive?

What would Ron Do?  Would he be out here amongst you if he were in this situation?  I think not.

I bet if I sat down and asked him, he would probably admit that Mr. Romney was nowhere near as dangerous to America as Mr. Obama sitting in the White House for another four years – especially since the ‘official nomination’.

I was the Arizona Voting Delegate at the Continental Congress 2009 in St. Charles, Illinois.  For eleven days, duly elected Delegates from 48 of the 50 states deliberated violations of the Constitution, including an Article that dealt with the Current sitting President’s failure to enforce the law regarding immigration.  I sat on that Committee and personally helped write that Article.

Being a Concerned Arizonan, I have watched closely my County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, as he has been investigating our sitting President.  He has reported back to us that his publicly released documentation of birth AND his Service Registration card are forgeries.

I could go on, but we all see it.

I am greatly distressed at the direction my Beloved Republic has been taken by this man in the Oval Office, and fear greatly for the safety of myself, my family, and my Country.  I fear the resort to the Use of Arms by American Citizens, and untold misery, heartache, and unnecessary bloodshed on American soil.

It is for these reasons that I implore my Fellow Patriots to not air your grievances at this time, publicly.  Please, go back inside the Convention hall, as one, and show some maturity and solidarity, and continue this road we have come so far on.  Let us have our grievances arbitrated either within the Party, or failing to resolute – take it to the courts.

I honestly believe that’s what Ron would do.

Ron Paul Supporters Now Eating Themselves

Interesting video by a Ron Paul supporter in which he calls Rand Paul a “Scumbag” in his YouTube title.

Not surprised.

Every day the Ron Paul faction takes on the disturbing characteristics of a political cult. This is what happens when you put all your faith into one man.

The Ron Paul Revolution is O-V-E-R and even the son of the movement’s leader know it.

Watch as the Paulistinians further self-destruct as the General Election nears.

A word of advice to the Ron Paul followers. Get with the program!

The survival of the Republic depends on it.

Ron Paul Revolutionaries Chaotic Takeover Attempt of Arizona Republican Convention

Guest video:

Here’s the video of Saturday’s Republican Party Convention where Ron Paul fanatics caused chaos and havoc in an attempt to take over the convention. Keep in mind that the woman who they attempted to elect as National Committeeman is a 911 Truther.

Zany band of Paul supporters plan revolution

Reposted from the Arizona Daily Independent

zany : comical in an endearing way; imaginatively funny or comical, especially in behavior 

Jeff Bales, a Ron Paul supporter and Member at Large of the Pima County GOP has called for the resignation of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. Bales is alleging that Priebus is showing favoritism towards Mitt Romney, and claims that Ron Paul is still in the race.

“Due to an alleged violation of the national GOP’s Rule # 11 (bans favoritism of one candidate while more than one candidate exists), an Executive Committee member within the GOP calls for the resignation of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus,” writes Bales.

Bales, who describes himself as a “simple” man, hopes to win the Ron Paul revolution through Facebook and other social networking sites including CNN ireport. Bales is being supported by a fringe group. The GOP has been under attack by many fringe elements including failed Tucson mayoral candidate Shaun McClusky who now claims to control the url of the Pima GOP.

One Paul supporter, who asked to remain anonymous, has come forward with concerns about the group’s bigger plan for this weekend, as a result of what she believes are “less than honorable tactics” employed by her fellow Paul supporters. “Their lack of intellectual contribution to the GOP has begun many to speculate there may be Dems in their midst,” she told the ADI.

The stealthy Paul contingent plans to nominate Ron Paul delegates at this weekend’s Arizona Republican Party Convention to send to Florida this summer. They have quietly arranged for Republican delegates for Paul to act like Romney supporters in order to be elected by their unsuspecting fellow Republicans to attend the Republican convention in Florida this summer.

One Paul supporter, Rachel Owen Tyson, claims that “Romney people that have been dressing up as Paul supporters and passing out fake slates of delegates to vote on.”

Tin foil hats are soon to be in short supply in the Paul ranks.

According to various sources, the Paul supporters intend to invoke “Rule 38” which states that States and Congressional Districts cannot “bind” their delegates in the case of a second ballot.

Bales posted on Facebook a video of a news report in which “Rule 38″ is discussed, and wrote “sshhhh” to his “friends.”

The Ron Paul contingent includes over 100 Arizona Republican delegates. Notable Ron Paul donors and/or supporters include:

Romney vs Paul

With the formal suspension of Santorum’s campaign today,  we are down to Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.

Although Gingrich has not formally suspended his campaign yet, he’s on the ropes.

Ron Paul and Mitt Romney were the only two who had a national campaign and appeared on all 50 states’ ballots.

Does the campaign now boil down to something as simple as this, the conservative underdog vs. the establishment moderate?  It seems so.

There have been a few interesting developments recently.  I came across this odd one this weekend where Russell Pearce stated that Romney and his immigrations positions are  virtually the same.    I find this hard to believe as Romney has been a supporter of the “DREAM” Act as well as amnesty:

Example 2

Example 3

That said, Pearce’s “internal enforcement” theory relies on a fundamental of Romney’s amnesty plan, that everyone has to get a national id card and workers (incl. *citizens*) cannot get a job unless the federal government first gives permission.  (Where’s THAT in the constitution?  Actually, that was the Clinton plan from 1993.)

5 term Rep. Chris Cannon (R, UT-3) was turfed out of his incumbent position by the Tea Party last cycle for just such duplicity on immigration, stating “tough” positions on immigration while promoting national id cards, federal tracking of citizens and amnesty while in DC.

Here’s Ron Paul’s position.  The irony is that Ron Paul’s (40 year unwavering) position on immigration sounds like what Russell Pearce *says* his platform is.  Except note, Ron Paul’s maintains constitutional integrity, individual constitutional rights for *citizens* while providing a zero-exception rule to amnesty, i.e. NO amnesty, no ids cards, no exceptions.

Some other information presented for your consideration.

Mitt Romney has not returned Gun Owners of America’s questionnaire–after three requests: http://gunowners.org/a02272012.htm

Here’s GOA’s evaluation of Ron Paul: http://gunowners.org/ronpaul-2012.htm GOA says Ron Paul has “guts” and is a “Second Ammendment Champion”. They give him an A+ rating.

Here are GOA’s 2012 Republican Presidential candidate ratings:
Ron Paul: A+ Santorum: B- Gingrich: C Romney: D- (based on his previous positions)

This is an interesting one.  Watch the crowds.  Watch the median age.  Look at these young Republicans who embrace individual responsibility, the constitution, the founding fathers and individual liberty.   Crowds of 8000?  See for yourself:


On the day Rick Santorum dropped out of the presidential race, it was Ron Paul — not presumptive front-runner Mitt Romney — who stole the show at the do-over Republican caucus in one of Missouri’s largest and most conservative counties.
