Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich and West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey are co-leading a coalition of 25 states to protect Americans’ right to bear arms, asking the United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) to hear the case Bianchi v. Frosh, where the justices should overturn the Fourth Circuit’s approval of a Maryland firearms ban.“Americans do not require approval from a local jurisdiction to exercise their constitutional rights,” said Brnovich. “We must vigorously oppose this type of misguided overreach at all levels of government.” See copy of amicus brief here.

Gubernatorial candidate Matt Salmon’s video on his plan to zero-out Arizona’s state income tax has been censored by YouTube. Salmon said, “I stand with millions of Americans who are sick and tired of these Big Tech companies manipulating information and censoring conservatives whose ideas they disagree with. These Silicon Valley giants have proven there is no step they won’t take to gain a greater foothold in the marketplace. I demand that YouTube immediately reinstate our video and take its foot off of the scale in this race. I plan to hold these people accountable and ensure they receive the scrutiny they have earned.” The video inquestion was an exchange from Salmon’s recent interview on “War Room” with Steve Bannon. The censorship comes on the heels of Salmon’s ongoing criticism of Silicon Valley.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says he appreciates the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) decision to stop the federal government’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private businesses, he is disappointed health care workers are not afforded the same rights. “We must all stand together to preserve our country’s Constitution, states’ sovereignty, and our individual liberties, especially in times of emergency,” said Brnovich. “The federal government doesn’t get to be your nanny, and it shouldn’t get to be your doctor.” The SCOTUS decision for private employers stems from a lawsuit Brnovich and other attorneys general filed to stop the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private businesses with more than 100 employees. The rules promulgated by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) require private employers to mandate their employees get vaccinated or implement weekly testing and mask requirements. Non-compliant businesses would face steep fines. SCOTUS also ruled that the vaccine requirement for health care workers is in effect. Brnovich’s lawsuit is still ongoing. See Brnovich v. Biden (Federal Employees and Contractors)

The Arizona House of Representatives yesterday paused to reflect and remember the victims and survivors of the Holocaust perpetrated by Nazi Germany and its collaborators. An official legislative proclamation, sponsored by Republican State Representative Lupe Diaz, was read aloud on the House floor declaring a day of remembrance in Arizona to honor the victims of the Holocaust, and other victims of Nazism.

  • Whereas, on January 27, 1945, the Soviet Red Army entered the Auschwitz concentration camp operated by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland; and
  • Whereas, the soldiers found more than 7,000 survivors within the camp complex who were targeted for annihilation by the Nazis and victims of horrific atrocities; and
  • Whereas, January 27, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz–Birkenau, was designated as International Holocaust Remembrance Day by the United Nations General Assembly in 2005; and
  • Whereas, the world remembers the six million Jewish men, women and children who were killed by the evil Nazi regime and its collaborators; and
  • Whereas, on this day we also remember the fewer than 180,000 living survivors of the Holocaust who reside primarily in Israel; and
  • Whereas, with the rise of anti-Semitism, we stand to expose this unjust treatment of the Jewish people and its nation.
  • Therefore, I, Representative Lupe Diaz, invite the Members of the Arizona House of Representatives to join me in honoring the victims of the Holocaust, and other victims of Nazism, by declaring January 27th a day of remembrance in Arizona and its public entities.

AMANDA REYES, College Republicans United: On Jan 26, Dr Michael Crow, President of ASU, gave a presentation to the Legislative Appropriations Committee asking for more funding for his pet projects. Rep Jake Hoffman attempted to ask what Crow was doing to address the anti-white racism on campus before he would ever consider his request for more money. Unfortunately, Hoffman never got an answer and was shut down immediately by Rep Regina Cobb from LD5 Mohave. As a student organization we can assure you ASU has a problem with conservative students, Christians, and white people in general. This is a problem institutionalized by staff and we need help from the GOP to highlight this abuse. What Cobb is doing feels like the establishment running cover to maintain the status quo. Here is the video in reference: https://twitter.com/ASU_CRU/status/1486492774870384640

KALE KIYABU of Sierra Vista: Questioning Candidates – State candidates have the responsibility to know the limits placed on the federal government by the Constitution of the United States.
The Legislative Department duties and responsibilities are listed in Article 4 of the constitution and Title 41 of the Arizona Revised Statutes (ARS); also, wherever “by law” or “definition” appears in either document.

  • The Executive Department duties and responsibilities are listed in Article 5 of the constitution and Title 41 of the ARS. There are 5 elected executive offices: Governor, Secretary of State, Treasurer, Attorney General and Superintendent of Public Instruction (the last is covered Article 11, Section 4 and ARS 15, Chapter 2, Article 3).
  • The Judicial Department duties and responsibilities are listed in Article 6 and 6.1 of the constitution and Titles 12 and 22 of the ARS.
  • County Officers powers, duties and responsibilities are listed in Article 12 of the constitution and Title 11 of the ARS.
  • The City/Town powers, duties and responsibilities are found in Article 13 of the constitution and Titles 9 and 22 of the ARS.
  • Education (which includes Superintendent of Public Instruction, County School Superintendent and School/District Governing Boards) is covered in Article 11 of the constitution and Title 15 of the ARS.

Listen to the candidate describe themselves and answer questions. See candidates in multiple venues. The honest ones give the same answers on issues no matter the audience they are speaking to. If their answers change, which response is to be believed? It is helpful to see candidates engage in forums and debates. This is especially important in the primaries. It is much easier to compare and contrast candidates if they are all answering the same questions. We should demand this.

TRISTAN MANOS LD24 PC & SC: Good to see the Resolution adopted at the 2022 MCRC and AZGOP Mandatory Meetings promoting the importance of upholding Election Integrity HERE is being covered by the Arizona Republic (AZ Central), going so far as quoting multiple lines of the Resolution, HERE (or HERE to bypass a paywall). Where else is it being covered, or even mentioned in any way, shape, or form, especially within Republican circles, even President Trump e-blasting it or actually talking about it, via his Trump Alerts and 45 Office platforms, in an interview, or anything, anywhere? After it’s adoption, where is one single Arizona State or Federal Legislator (Senate or House), or candidate for the same, or candidate for Arizona Governor or Secretary of State, calling attention to it? Speaking more generally, any Election Integrity advocates, anywhere, out there? This Resolution is primarily for the sake of upholding Election Integrity, starting right here—Ground Zero—Maricopa County, and all throughout Arizona. Might it be that the name of the author is someone other than yourself, and you’re more, mostly, or only interested in calling attention to something if it’s got your name on it? Never mind the author, always mind the principle. The Arizona Republican Party and Maricopa County Republican Committee both voted to adopt it. What’s that mean to you? Special thanks to Arizona State Senator Sonny Borrelli for taking to the mic at the AZGOP Mandatory Meeting to voice his strong support for it. If you see or hear any mention of this Resolution, anywhere, please contact me, or if you’d like a copy of the text HERE, a graphic HERE, or the controversial statements made by Maricopa County government officials that hit over half a million views on Twitter HERE. If you believe in it, take it and run with it. Contact: tristanmanos3@gmail.com

Steve Slaton Response to Walt Blackman: Blackman keeps trying to sound like a good Conservative 01-27-2022 Briefs However. Blackmans Record is his Record. Let’s look at Blackmans Legislative record. As you all know we’ve been at war with the Democrats for many years. Rep Blackman has C0-SPONSORED 61 Democratic Bills. He introduced rank choice voting which turned California BLUE, for which He was exposed. He was for Sylvia Allen’s Tax increase, then he was exposed on it, He was for closing down development in the Holbrook Basin with the Democrats and he was exposed on it. He voted for a $20 MILLION bridge to nowhere due to a stupid motorist. He won’t sign Senator Rogers Decertification letter for the 2020 election, and he endorses candidates that do not believe that our state legislators have any authority to recall our presidential electors. One of his newest bills is to have the Arizona taxpayers pay for juvenile lawyers’ costs and fees without any regard to the taxpayers. This is Blackmans following along with Soro’s POOR PEOPLE’S CAMPAIGN INITIATIVE. Everything Blackman has done is to impede our freedoms, not to protect them. Blackman has shown no true beliefs in the Republican Platform. Slaton is a Navajo County PC. – ft

BRIAN REILLY: As I write this letter, my Pastor is dying in the hospital. He’s been isolated from his family and friends. I warned the family to not allow the doctors to treat Pastor using the Fauci Protocols. What are the Fauci Protocols? Test for COVID (the test can be manipulated); put the patient on a sedative; put the patient on an oxygen ventilator; cut the patients nutrition; isolate the patient from family and friends; administer Remdesivir which is known to destroy one’s kidneys causing one to drown in their own fluids. The patient’s body is not released to the family but is quickly cremated. Isolating the patient from family and friends and rapidly cremating the body makes one very suspicious. The government has a history destroying evidence. I’m shocked at this moment and extremely angry at what the people of America have been subjected to by the medical establishment and government for the past two years. Am I describing something that rarely happens? I’m told this is happening at hospitals across America. Locally, in the past three weeks, I’m told two sisters took their husbands to the local hospital for medical treatment. One of the sisters related their story to me. What I’ve described above is almost identical to what the sisters’ husbands experienced, including isolation, deprivation of nutrition, and the use of Remdesivir. Both husbands died in the hospital, 3 days apart. Both husbands were instantly cremated. The sister told me that she believed that her husband “was murdered” by the hospital. She said her husband was yelled at by the doctor, who told her husband he would die unless he got a COVID shot. Her husband refused. A $100,000.00 incentive per COVID case, apparently, is the hospital’s motivation for their uncaring, barbaric treatment.

American Free Enterprise Club: People are waking up. And you don’t need to look for proof much further than the amount of people who have left California recently. In fact, the migration from our neighbors to the West got so bad that the state lost a congressional seat, which also shrinks its number of votes in the Electoral College. Instead of California dreamin’, people are California leavin’. And when you look at the state’s vast array of woke policies, who can blame them? It’s almost hard to believe that more people haven’t left. But perhaps there’s a reason for that. They can’t find a moving truck…

BOB LETTIERI, state treasurer candidate: The Taxpayer’s of our State should get more just the amount of money being invested on your behalf. I plan on providing information on population growth, job growth and inflation that impact the flow of funds into the Treasury. I am running because I am qualified to do the job. I have more than 40 years experience working in financial markets. I have managed millions of dollars, reported to major corporations as a C-level executive, and done it all with the highest ethical standards. As your Arizona Republican Party Treasurer, I brought those same high standards to bear. Our party is now a leader is financial reporting. Qualifications like those are what matter most. Arizonans deserve someone they can trust who will manage our state’s money responsibly. The Arizona State Treasurer oversees a major department with hundreds of employees. They are responsible for billions of dollars in tax revenue. It is not a job that should go to a politician – especially not to a disinterested politician who would rather run for another office. I want to be Arizona State Treasurer because I will do the job well. Now is the time to help me get on the primary ballot. I need thousands of Arizonans like you to sign my ballot petition at https://apps.azsos.gov/apps/election/eps/op/

ABRAHAM “ABE” HAMADEH, an ‘Arizona First’ Attorney General candidate, has announced that he will be the first AG candidate to appear on television. Abe, a US Army Reserve Captain & Intelligence Officer, and a former prosecutor, released a hard-hitting ad targeting the invasion of the southern border and the Biden/Harris Administration’s intentional and orchestrated efforts to erode our sovereignty. “My campaign is going on offense because it’s clear Arizona needs bold leadership. I got into this race less than 90 days ago because I will no longer tolerate the same old revolving door of failed candidates and establishment insiders. Our ad holds no punches in calling out the dereliction of duty of our elected officials at both the state and federal level. Arizona’s next Attorney General needs to be willing to fight like hell to keep our communities safe and have the courage to go after the cartels as the terrorists they are” Abe continued. Abraham is a former prosecutor at the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office and a U.S. Army Reserve Captain and Intelligence Officer where he recently returned from a 14-month-long deployment to Saudi Arabia. See www.AbeforAG.com

STEVE GAYNOR, gubernatorial candidate: While vaccines may reduce the chance of contracting a severe COVID case, forcing these vaccines upon Americans is the wrong way to roll them out. COVID politics have driven a wedge into American society. On one side are the realists who know that keeping America locked down and forever masked up is neither desirable nor feasible. On the other side, you have Radical Leftists who live in total fear, masked up alone in their car, and support crazy policies like camps for the unvaccinated and taking children away from unvaccinated parents! PITCH IN TO STAND UP TO BIDEN’S MANDATES. The gulf in American society is vast and widening, and Joe Biden and the Radical Democrats have only made things worse. We need to stop punishing Americans for refusing to comply with unjust vaccine mandates and begin respecting our Constitution again. However, with Biden pushing this issue to the forefront, and with a Democrat Congress, it’s come down to us to ensure that his mandates are put to an end. A divided America is a weak America, and I want to see America stronger than ever! Can I count on you to pitch in and join my fight to end the unjust and overreaching mandates? Let’s start healing our country!

SHAWNNA BOLICK, Secretary of State candidate: Arizona has less than 300 days until the pivotal 2022 election. Democrats want you to stay home and not vote on November 8, 2022. Let’s send a clear message that we are loud and proud to be conservatives. I’m a conservative woman who will secure our elections, de-politicize the Secretary of State’s office, and serve Arizona businesses. I’ll create an office that works for ALL Arizonans.

CONGRESSMAN PAUL GOSAR: The 10th Anniversary of the National Day of Remembrance for Downwinders is an important reminder that Arizonans exposed to radiation and cancer-causing carcinogens and who developed cancer or other related illnesses during our nation’s Cold War-era nuclear weapons testing deserve restitution for their suffering. Unfortunately, when Congress previously passed the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) in 1990 to make it possible for victims of illnesses resulting from atmospheric nuclear testing to file claims with the United States Department of Justice, it failed to properly define the boundaries of impacted populations. Americans who reside in counties in close proximity to where the testing occurred are excluded from this program for no logical scientific reason, including people that reside in Mohave County, Arizona and Clark County, Nevada. RECA is set to expire on July 7, 2022 and Congress has a moral responsibility to reauthorize RECA and update it by including both Mohave and Clark counties as affected areas. The National Day of Remembrance for Downwinders, January 27, 2022, marks the anniversary of the first atmospheric nuclear test at the Nevada Proving Ground test site, approximately 65 miles northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada. The United States government conducted nearly 200 atmospheric weapons development tests as part of Cold War security from 1945 to 1962—an era when other nations also engaged in nuclear weapons testing and proliferation. These tests exposed thousands of Americans to cancer-causing ionized radiation from nuclear fallout. The Radiation Exposure Compensation Act is a federally funded program that provides partial restitution to those living in certain areas affected by the nuclear weapons testing from 1945 to 1962. Those affected, referred to as downwinders, are known to have developed cancer following the nearby above-ground atomic weapons testing.
