American Conservative Union Award

American Conservative Union Award

I am pleased to report that I have received the Conservative Excellence Award from one of the top conservative values watchdogs in the nation. The award is for fidelity to the Constitution, which I took an oath to protect and defend. While many people seek to reinterpret long standing jurisprudence dealing with both natural and legal rights for all of America, and for Arizonans more specifically, I have been committed to the course of “securing the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.” As …

Common Core Standards are About Pedagogy Not Standards

Common Core Standards are About Pedagogy Not Standards

Too many people are complaining about the Common Core standards and time is running out to do something. It doesn’t require much at all, but it is all that is left to do at this point. AND it is SIMPLE.

I am urging anyone with a computer, or access to one to submit comments regarding Arizona’s K-12 Mathematics and English Language Arts Standards. They must visit https://k12standards.az.gov

The deadline to weigh-in is Friday.

Please consider insisting that the State follow the guidelines created by The Mommy Lobby. They say that academic standards …

Obama Central Planning Non-Stop; The end of Private Property Rights

Obama Central Planning Non-Stop; The end of Private Property Rights

If you like your neighborhood, your house and your sense of community you can keep it, and if you like your doctor you can keep him too. Well, not if Barak Obama the Thief-in-Chief gets his way. The Presidents minions are at it again, melding with a private property right that is so basic that even hard core liberals are left asking what the hell?  When will he appoint a Zoning Czar?

The Obama Administration has an insatiable appetite for artificial forced “integration” under the false …

HB 2173 and “Legal Tender”

HB 2173 and “Legal Tender”

HB 2173 has passed from the Arizona House of Representatives and to the Senate and quickly made its way through the Banking and Rules Committees. I’ve been asked by several constituents to explain why we need this piece of legislation, and what does it mean.

I may seem odd to hear a REALTOR say there is no such thing as “appreciation”, but think about it this way. If you bought a home in 1985 for $150,000 and sold it in 2015 for $300,000 did it really …

EPA’s Clean Power Plan will raise energy prices by 45%

EPA’s Clean Power Plan will raise energy prices by 45%

No this is not fear mongering, it is fact as reported by multiple sources.  The EPA has been taking comments on their new regulations and the comment period ends this weekend on November 31. The EPA “Clean Power Plan” creates the appearance of a problem to solve, then proposes a solution that will put Arizona infrastructure at risk and destroy family budgets. The EPA Clean Power plan (carbon rules) are a massive cost addition in to consumers already stressed daily living expenses.

The questionable rules will raise …

“Arizona must not waste time and resources on suing the Federal government .”  That’s the claim Liberal Democrats Jo Holt and Holy Lyons have made on several occasions throughout the 2014 House of Representatives campaign.

We are left to believe the opposite of that statement must be true of their stand, that Arizona should not vigorously and regularly assert the rights of the State and of the People?  After all we hear (and I firmly believe) even from Democrats that the Constitution is the Law of the land. …

The Importance of Co-Equal Sovereigns

The Importance of Co-Equal Sovereigns

Kurt Schlichter, writing for TownHall.com, has done a great service to our nation.  He summarized what the alternative to the “Rule of Law” is.  History has proven over and over again the cycle of rise and fall.  The alternative?  It is the “Rule of Power”, and the rule of power is not supported with a common understanding that there is a Constitution that guides us and our affairs even to the level of day to day life and how we act ethically and fairly with …

National Review Issues Common Core Indictment

National Review Issues Common Core Indictment

As the States begin to consume the “poisoned apple” distributed around America, known as Common Core, Stanley Kurtz writes a scathing indictment of just one component of the big government play to seize States rights, in spite of the lack of enumerated power to do so.

Kurtz writes, “Americans are only now just waking up to a quiet but devastatingly effective effort to replace the teaching of traditional American history in our high schools with a new, centrally-controlled, and sharply left-leaning curriculum.”

Legislation that will “embarrass” the State of Arizona?

Legislation that will “embarrass” the State of Arizona?

What might that be, SB1070, HB2291, SB1062? Or could it be the right of Arizona to ensure that only legitimate, legal residents of the state are allowed to vote in state elections (a position upheld by the USSC by the way)?

On June 11th at the Saddlebrooke Republican’s LD-11 Candidate Forum our opponent, Jo Grant said that she, “[w]ill not participate in crafting legislation that will embarrass Arizona”. What did she mean by that?  We can only assume she was talking about any legislation that is …

Business Productivity Principles, Meet Government

Business Productivity Principles, Meet Government

I’ve been told on several occasions that government can’t be run like a business.  “It’s “political”, I’m told and “you have to give in to this constituency or that special interest group to cultivate power, the power to get things done”.  If getting things done means even more collaboration for compromise then there is little wonder why we have a so many issues.
