    I attended the Arizona Citizens Defense League annual meeting in Phoenix on Saturday, 8 October, 2016.  It was a 170 mile drive, one way, from Yuma. Usually I take a friend, but I was slow this year, and the meeting and annual dinner was sold out before I invited anyone. You can see the crush crowd outside the meeting hall, registering to get in. The majority, about 80%, were openly carrying. AzCDL is one of the most successful state groups that have organized to restore the right to keep and bear arms.  The group was founded by Fred Dahnke...

    Anyone who is still wondering how to vote on November 8, and who sincerely wants to vote their conscience, need only listen to this extraordinary homily given by a priest who knows exactly who to vote for. On October 2, 2016, the Very Reverend John Lankeit of the Diocese of Phoenix began his homily by warning the congregation that the devil is a divider who will use almost any tactic to separate Christians from Christ. “He doesn’t typically come right out and say, ‘Deny Jesus Christ!’ because he knows that someone who loves Jesus would immediately reject the suggestion.

He asked if Arizona were an open carry state.  I said that it was, and went on to explain that most states were.  He said he was from Colorado, where open carry was forbidden in some cities.  Yes, I said, the Colorado Supreme Court had made a weird decision that Denver could ignore state law.  He said the city of Aurora also prohibited open carry in...

    The last federal budget was signed into law September of 2007 for fiscal year 2008. Almost a decade has passed without a federal budget. The 2009 ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act), otherwise known as “The $1,000,000,000,000 ’09 Stimulus Bill”, has been spent every year for the past 7 fiscal years. That’s correct. Due to no budget, and base-line budgeting continuous resolutions, aka “omnibus bills”, we’ve spent the 2009 “Stimulus Bill” seven more times. Each year, for seven consecutive years. Ask yourself: Where did it go?

Now he’s using millions of dollars in dark money in a bid to hold on to his tightly contested Arizona seat.

    For two years, the Arizona Citizens Defense League (AZCDL) has been pushing to pass a bill to enact a compact between states.  The purpose of the bill is to prevent a billionaire funded referendum from imposing Universal Background Checks (UBC), a precursor to firearms registration in Arizona.  Compacts between the states take precedence over state statutes; if another state signed on the the Compact created by SB2524, a Bloomberg funded referendum would not be able to impose UBCs on Arizona.  That, at least, is the theory. A few weeks ago, SB2524 passed the Arizona legislature. If it had become...

With posters that read "Dump Trump" and "Must Stop Trump," the protesters, in one sense, acted on their right to demonstrate against the Republican frontrunner and the sheriff who was sanctioned for refusing a judge's order to...

John McCain predicts. "They have him positioned to spring the upset," Kurt Davis, a GOP operative in Arizona, told The Hill. "They just have to deliver."

    A project of the Committee To Restore America's Greatness CONTACT 1-855-245-4634 TO REPORT IRREGULARITIES OR VOTER FRAUD. The Trump Ballot Security Project was formed when the main stream media reported dozens of voting irregularities in the Texas Republican primary. This ultimately totaled over 600 reports in at least six counties including Dallas County and Travis County. In virtually every case votes cast for Donald J. Trump were tallied for Senator Marco Rubio. We established a Toll Free number to collect further reports of voter irregularities. Almost immediately there were over 300 complaints from Oklahoma. Only a week later the Kansas...

     Armed Second Amendment Supporters at the Arizona State Capitol A bill to shore up protections for Second Amendment rights, HB 2524,  has passed the Arizona House by substantial margins, 35 to 24.  The bill would have Arizona join with other states in an interstate compact, to prevent imposition of restrictions on the transfer of firearms that are stricter than federal law.   From AP at The House has passed a pro-gun bill that would let Arizona join with other states to make themselves exempt from any new rules that would curtail the public’s Second Amendment rights.

  • Rank and File Republicans Tell Party Elites: We’re Sticking With Donald Trump

    From Michigan to Louisiana to California on Friday, rank-and-file Republicans expressed mystification, dismissal and contempt regarding the instructions that their party’s most high-profile leaders were urgently handing down to them: Reject and defeat Donald J. Trump. Their angry reactions, in the 24 hours since Mitt Romney and John McCain urged millions of voters to cooperate in a grand strategy to undermine Mr. Trump’s candidacy, have captured the seemingly inexorable force of a movement that still puzzles the Republican elite and now threatens to unravel the party they hold dear. In interviews, even lifelong Republicans who cast a ballot for Mr....

    "A nation without borders is like a house without walls – it collapses. As Arizona's Governor, I witnessed too much heartache, loss and suffering caused by illegal immigration," Brewer said in a statement announcing her endorsement. "For years I pleaded with the federal government to do their job and secure our border. Today, we can elect a President who will do just that — Donald J. Trump."

    Image from Superior Court Judge Dan Slayton refused to reduce the 2 Million dollar bail for Steven Jones, who pleaded self defense last year after being beat and chased by a group of fraternity men at Northern Arizona University.   The prosecutor's office is the Coconino County Attorneys office out of Flagstaff. It is the same prosecutor's office that handled the infamous Harold Fish case.  Fish also pleaded self defense.  Prosecutors mishandled the Fish case.  He spent three years in prison until an appeals court overturned the conviction and released him pending a new trial. Coconino prosecutors asked the...

    Arizona Capitol Demonstration in favor of Second Amendment 2013 As the media cartel loses its power to define the agenda and dictate the terms of debate, states are starting to reassert their power to protect their citizens from an out of control federal government.  A number of states have already passed laws that serve to reign in federal power over the regulation of guns.  From  In Idaho, the Legislature unanimously passed a law this year to keep any future federal gun measures from being enforced in the state. In Kansas, a law passed last year says federal regulation...

    Picture courtesy A house fire in Gilbert, Arizona, appears to be a rare case of a reloading accident getting out of hand.  No one has determined the cause of the accident.  I hope that smoking was not involved.  One of the things forbidden to reloaders is to smoke while engaged in the hobby.  The reloader suffered burns to his face and upper body.  That is likely why the fire got out of hand.  It would not have taken much to get the three vehicles out of the garage.  Their loss was certainly a substantial percentage of the total...
