“Vast Right-wing Conspiracy” Returns

“Vast Right-wing Conspiracy” Returns

The fake news media once again demonstrates its failure to engage in what is commonly called investigative journalism.  Instead the so-called “reporters” are working overtime to construct that favorite go-to straw man, the “vast right-wing conspiracy theory,” made popular by Hillary Clinton while trying to explain Bill’s philandering.

Now the actors with a script -who have replaced reporters and journalists- of the legacy media industrial complex are peddling the story that “far right” and the far left are at each others throats, and that they are …

What is the Meaning of an Oath?

What is the Meaning of an Oath?

All elected officials take an oath of office.  In every instance that I know of the Oath speaks to the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution of the united States, and the commitment of the office holder to “protect and defend the Constitution of the united States, and of this state against all enemies foreign and domestic.”  I doubt that any of my peers take the oath lightly, but I question if some understand what it says.

This oath does not have an expiration date, nor does it …

What Is Nullification

What Is Nullification

I’ve been asked by a number of constituents, “Why can’t we just tell the federal government we won’t do something they require of us?  After all, we did not empower them to make the states do much of what the Feds now require?”  In my humble opinion I believe the States have the right and authority to object and decline to federal mandates, essentially applying the element of “nullification” to the federal position.

Two problems become evident.  First, the States have gone along with the progressive …

HB 2190, Repeal & Replace CC Update

HB 2190, Repeal & Replace CC Update

On Wednesday, March 11 in open session of the 52nd Arizona Legislature, HB 2190, the bill to repeal and replace the Federally dictated program known generally as Common Core, but here in Arizona College and career ready standards, was passed by the House of Representatives on a vote of 34 to 24 with two members not voting.

Members had a spirited, transparent debate over the content and implications of the bill.

We saw crony capitalism on trial for the public to see….

At stake is the future of …

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 …

Can Values Voters Seize Control of Their Government?

Can Values Voters Seize Control of Their Government?

The article below is reprinted in it’s entirety from WND because it is spot on analysis, it points to the serious problem we, the value voters have at hand.

The establishment GOP will not listen to the grass roots, values voters.  Why?  Because the GOP establishment actually believes it was their work that won the election for conservative Republicans November 2014.  What the GOP is missing is the votes for principled representation were not for “go-along to get-along” power brokering.

In my humble opinion, after the Christmas …

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 …

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 …

Why Arizona Needs a Constitutional Tender Act

Why Arizona Needs a Constitutional Tender Act

It seems Governor Brewer lacked vision, while Representative Steve Smith showed a mind for advanced planning.  Brewer vetoed the Constitutional Tender Act that would have provided protection for Arizona residents who are capable of transacting business with gold and silver coins, rounds and other forms that are verifiable by content and weight.

Russia drop-kicks the US Dollar.

So, when the dollar goes lower because of mismanagement, the assault on oil and other lost opportunities by the Federal Reserve (the central bank private corporation with a government name) …

Paying for Improved Educational Outcomes

Paying for Improved Educational Outcomes

Arizona residents for the most part have made a statement that they are taxed enough already.  With voter initiatives that cap taxation and earmark what specific taxes will pay for point directly to the frustration level of tax payers.  I also believe we are taxed enough already.

It is one thing to claim that if elected one will improve education and restore reason to the legislature, it is another thing to pay for it.  Arizona is in debt and has a structural debt projected for FY …
