Kudos to people like Sue Goodchild of Prescott Valley, who is doing her best to get the younger generation involved with conservative Republicans. Her parties/meeting aren’t hen parties, she brings in patriotic speakers who teach new PCs what they need to do to win elections. Never-mind her many aliments, she is busy hosting Party events.
Bonnie Ebstyne emphatically denies distributing a message attributed to her via Telegram that says … “Frosty Taylor’s Republican Briefs packed full these days with lies & propaganda…” – following the MCRC BBQ. Ebstyne, who chaired the MCRC BBQ verified reports Sunday that she is one of the Telegram administrators. She is not happy with Briefs “Readers Speak Out” commentary of disappointment with the MCRC BBQ. She considers the BBQ a success. She is chair of Patriots of AZ, which she refers to as an educational group. Sunday morning another message floated around under Ebstyne’s name reading: “Frosty’s Briefs has simply become the Desantis/Rove/Bush/ Uniparty blog. It was always so good. It changed in January.

The Arizona House of Representatives Republican Majority Caucus issued the following statement Friday: It’s deeply disturbing that any sitting President would endanger border states and neglect to protect American citizens from being overrun by the dangerous repercussions of an open and unsecure border. Yet that is precisely what President Biden and his administration have done since taking office. With the president’s reckless decision to abandon Title 42 – an effective legal policy enabling the United States to turn back illegal immigrants, including those making asylum claims – border states like ours are bracing for a massive wave of additional illegal immigration and criminal activity that will exacerbate the current crisis beyond the breaking point. Law enforcement agencies are already overextended from the endless flood of illegal immigration, human trafficking, and dangerous narcotics. Health care providers are strained, especially in border communities like Yuma, where it is a constant struggle to deliver essential services to residents in need of care. After years of being on the front lines of the southern border crisis created entirely by the federal government’s refusal to secure the border, the State of Arizona was forced to act, investing its resources to help overwhelmed communities where it could. In 2021, House Republicans passed a Border Security Fund, which was used to help prevent human trafficking and illegal entry into the country, to solidify infrastructure, aid local prosecution efforts, and other necessary activities to protect Arizona citizens. Last year we put over $500 million into the fund and allocated over $209 million for a variety of state and local border enforcement activities. About $240 million remains in the fund, which the state can use to counteract the federal government’s negligence on the border and the harm it has in our communities. In the new state budget passed this week, we included:
- Maintaining a $30 million program that provides additional support to local law enforcement facing border-related crimes. (Border Drug and Interdiction Fund; Local Border Support – formerly known as the Border Strike Force)
- Adding $10 million to human trafficking prevention efforts.
- Adding $3 million for additional fentanyl prosecution efforts.
With each passing day, illegal immigration grows, more deadly fentanyl pours through our borders, more young girls are pushed into border-related sex trafficking, and law enforcement officers are killed in the line of duty, all because leaders of our federal government refuse to protect the nation. We demand that change now. The border must be made safe and secure. While the state cannot do the job of the federal government, House Republicans will continue working to ensure the state prioritizes safety, security, and the protection of the people of Arizona.

DANIELLE HAGEN: Regarding the LD 2 fundraiser. 1st of all our job is to raise money. not just for candidates, but as well as to be a community leaders when it comes to informing our constituents and build bons. It takes money to make money. We are absolutely obligated to hold it events for everyone to participate together. Plan strategies to benefit our great communities. No different than a PAC. We do NOT. Those who oppose it for their own selfish reasons. Just what we need more pettiness, more division and more inside party meddling it’s like liberals have invaded our LDs. ps. Thanks for the advertisement. It will be fun.
SUSAN WOOD, LD3PC: I dispute the assertions made by Bob Gomez. 5-10-23 Briefs His first 3 “facts” are inaccurate and I have provided clarification.
- FACT: LD3 bylaws Article I Section 2. The District shall function as part of the MCRC and in cooperation with the State Committee of the AZGOP. (interpretation – LD3 reports to the MCRC) [Corrected. The LD 3 bylaws must be in compliance both with the state statutes and the MCRC bylaws. A majority of the LD 3 elected precinct committeemen had and continue to have the right to petition the MCRC Chairman to call a special meeting of the District Committee to remove the LD 3 Chair. A majority of the LD 3 PCs have not done that. Therefore, per the state statutes and the MCRC bylaws, the elected LD 3 Chair remains the LD 3 Chair.]
- FACT: MCRC recognizes the new chair and board and are present at all EGC meetings. A complete chronology of events is now posted at the LD3 website GOPLD3.ORG starting from the 12-1-22 election to the 3-30-23 re-election. [Corrected. The MCRC has no authority under the state statutes or the MCRC bylaws to recognize the “new”” chair and board as the original chair and board are still holding their offices, per both the state statutes and the MCRC bylaws. The writer cites neither to statutes or bylaws authorities.]
- FACT: The re-election was as a result of the investigation of the irregularities with the LD3 12-1-2022 election done by the 2022 MCRC Board and the new 2023 MCRC Board. [The MCRC had no authority to hold a “re-election” under the state statutes and the MCRC bylaws. After the prior MCRC officers failed to act prior to the January 14, 2023 MCRC organizational meeting, and because no removal of the elect LD 3 Chair and other officers took place, the LD 3 and other elected officers continued to remain in their offices, having been chosen by the PCs who voted at the LD 3 organizational meeting.]

VINCE ANSELMO: LD-4 was added to the growing list of Legislative Districts who have officially “censured” House Leader Ben Toma and Senate President Warren Petersen for what amounts to dereliction of duty. The “Resolution to Censure” as introduced by Precinct Committeeman Jodi Johnson, outlined the reasons for the censuring of these two Republican leaders. The primary focus in this resolution was that both Toma and Petersen have not exercised all of their options in challenging election integrity issues as well as their reluctance to utilize their “powers of the purse” to corral faux Governor Katie Hobbs into being more compliant with signing and approving common sense bills sponsored by Republican Legislators. When the Resolution was introduced as the last item on the LD-4 agenda, all hell broke loose! There were many who felt that Republicans shouldn’t be attacking other Republicans and that the Resolution to Censure was a form of political cannibalism. There were also many who believed that both Toma and Petersen were not utilizing their positions “unleashing the hounds of hell” on Hobbs who is clearly not operating in the best interests of Arizona. In order to divert from voting on the censure another PC pops up from out of nowhere to introduce an Amendment to the Resolution to censure faux Governor Katie Hobbs as well. When PC’s realized that it was an obvious diversion from the original context of the Censure, the Amendment failed to muster enough votes to pass. It was finally time to address the originally proposed Resolution to Censure and was put up for a vote.
SUZANNE COOK CATLIN: Republicans need a wakeup call. Some Republicans appear to be more focused on the destruction of the party from within, either intentionally or unintentionally, rather than winning in 2024. In the meantime, the Left is focused on us. Having investigated many of the allegations against Republicans by talking to BOTH sides, one side suffers from “group think” and “cognitive dissidence”, dangerous for any group. (Think JFK and the Bay of Pigs). The lies, attacks and half-truths need to stop now against hard working conservatives or this country will go hard communist in 2024. That’s TRUTH. Focus your energies on things that matter. The border, the schools, human trafficking, the economy, etc., are critical issues. No shortage of opportunities for outreach to voters. Btw, Jefferson is not and should never replace Lincoln as the leader of the party. He was a Whig and a slave owner. Also, I suggest a copy or a free link to the Heritage Foundation’s book, Guide to the Constitution. It would be especially helpful to “former” communists who were perhaps poorly schooled about state’s rights and other principles. In the meantime, the Dems are already working it and looking forward to AZ being permanently Blue. https://blogforarizona.net/kari-hull-and-nicky-indicavitch-discuss-democratic-rural-outreach-strategies-heading-into-2024/
JEFF GREENSPAN, LD4 PC/SC and MCRC Member at Large: Andrew Adams, chairman of LD14, is an amazing mind reader. In his May 9th Briefs post, he was inside the minds of those who voted against him 2:1. His ESP powers provided him with conclusive evidence that everyone who disagrees with him suffers from “blind allegiance” and “ignorance”. Andrew and his comrades post here almost every day complaining about someone, usually hardworking conservatives. How do we regular PCs out there know who is telling the truth? There is one sure sign. People who tell the truth present facts and evidence, include (non-opinion based) links and encourage you to form your own opinion. Those who do not tell the truth or are telling you THEIR truth, try to persuade using strong language, personal attacks and do NOT want you to look at facts. They want you to accept their opinion and take them at their word. Think back over the past few weeks of posts. Who among them tried to provide hard evidence so you can judge for yourself? And who among them came out with personal attacks (often in the same breath asking for unity), innuendo, and emotional appeals? There is a second sign – lawyers are not finders of fact, judges are. But several on the attack here like to represent legal opinions as fact. By definition they are not fact, they are opinions. I pray for discernment in all things, that you will evaluate the entirety of the facts, not just what people post here in 300 words or less, judge for yourself and not take the word of “officials” posting personal attacks. As always, please feel free to reach out anytime! firstname.lastname@example.org
PHIIL MASON,AZRA President:: We posted our latest AZRA Legislative Scorecard and I was surprised (and, in some cases, shocked and disappointed) at the latest rankings. I would like to clarify a few things to bring clarity to the situation.
- AZRA does NOT rate legislators. We rate bills that impact the lives of everyday Arizonans in a range from +10 to -10. We traditionally rate from 200 to 225 bills every session, but his year we were forced to lower that number to 150 due to the huge dislocation in the number of bills dropped prior to session.
- The AZRA Scorecard is the ONLY scorecard that tells the legislators IN ADVANCE of the bills we have rated, the precise rating for each bill with a clear reason for our rating, and the sincere request for the sponsor or concerned legislator to call us and discuss any information re: the quality of our rating of that bill.
- The AZRA Scorecard will never be used as a “gotcha” mechanism where legislators are apprised of their score six months later with no opportunity to adjust or understand prior to an opponent using the score as a campaign weapon.
- We have a proven track record of modifying our bill rating when we are given more information that we believe changes our initial impression of the bill. We are blessed and thankful when we are apprised of where we need to improve to make the product better. It is a full-time effort by many volunteers whose only interest is defending the Constitution and protecting Arizonans from any government overreach. – Mason https://azraaz.org
ROB CANTERBURY – MCRC / AZGOP Sergeant-at-Arms: I had the honor and privilege to speak at LD-23 last week and brought up the topic of Bill Gates (no, not OUR lousy Bill Gates), but one of the richest people of the planet, Bill Gates, has bought at least 27,700 acres in the areas of Buckeye and Tonopah. The reason, to build his ‘smart city’ that he will call Belmont, AZ. What is a ‘smart city’, it is a city that runs 100% off digital technologies. This will include government services, urban transportation, food production, even schools. What could possibly go wrong with having any government services (not including those that aren’t already) bought and paid for by Bill Gates, or what could possibly go wrong with students in schools in a Bill Gates owned city? Are we ready for this? There is only one thing that rich people want more of and that is more money. For Bill Gates to maximize his $80M investment for this ‘smart city’, he will need local and state government assistance. Do you really think that someone like Katie Hobbs will refuse a phone call from Bill Gates when he needs a government favor “with strings attached”, or do you think that Bill Gates will refuse a phone call from Bill Gates for the same thing? I don’t either. I have attached a video and internet article for more information on this ‘smart city’, you can make your own opinion. In 2024, we need to elect the right candidates to office for many, many reasons, this is just one example of why. It is also why I need your support for MCBOS in district 4, the area of this planned ‘smart city’. https://youtu.be/3fTQ1swe3dY https://hwy.co/bill-gates-smart-city-in-arizona/ Editor’s Note: Cantberbury is a Maricopa County Board of Supervisors candidate, 2024
TOM MORRISSEY, Past Chairman AZ GOP – I once said “Nothing or no one can be worse than Jimmy Carter then along came Bill Clinton. Then I said nothing or no one can be worse than Bill Clinton and along came Barack Obama. Then I said nothing or no one can be worse than Barack Obama and along came Joe Biden. Now I wonder if I should be saying nothing or no one can be worse than Joe Biden.” However, after Jimmy Carter we got Ronald Reagan and after Barack Obama we got Donald Trump. Something to ponder folks.
STEVE SAAF: Cities Declare States of Emergency as Massive Numbers of Illegal Aliens Continue to Swarm the U.S. Southern Border. Several border cities have declared states of emergency as the migrant invasion of the United States escalates.

WENDY ROGERS,: Chairman of the Elections Committee of the Arizona Senate. With so many things happening at the same time here, I wanted to give you a full accounting.
- Kari Lake’s lawsuit
- Abe Hamedeh’s lawsuit
- My Elections Committee
- My battles with the media
Lake’s been active! She’s suing for a pathway forward on signature verification. This is critical, as I have mentioned before. I showed you some of the signatures that got verified. They were awful. Kari is also rightly suing Runbeck and Maricopa for denying her the chance to inspect ballots to show that many were injected in. These are the chain of custody issues I have also told you about. In Abe Hamedeh’s trial, then-Secretary of State was aware of the issues in Pinal county’s vote. She knew, yet she did not tell the court. That is grounds for overturning the previous judgement right there! Finally, Kari Lake has discovered a bombshell revelation in her own hearing. Apparently, Maricopa KNEW their machines were faulty, over half of them, but used them anyway! One good thing about these trials, they are uncovering the uncomfortable truth about the shabby running of our elections. There is so much going on right now. I am showing you; but the people of Arizona won’t get this from our lying, festering Fake News media.
REPUBLICAN HOUSE MAJORITY REPORT: There’s no better time to prove your work in the legislative calendar than the budget season. It was important that Arizona’s budget gives back to Arizona families, spends wisely, and only addresses real issues affecting Arizonans.From day one, your Republican Majority has stayed focused on delivering results for our state while negotiating the challenges of getting bills past the governor’s desk. This budget is no different. Arizona’s 2024 budget is focused on top concerns like education, transportation, health care, public safety, and water while holding the line on spending, not spending a dime on abortion providers, protecting school choice, and ensuring our income tax rate stays as low as it is! Getting Governor Hobbs on board wasn’t simple, but we’re proud of the final result — a principled, conservative budget that serves Arizonans.As Arizonans are working through inflation and making ends meet, it was important that the budget met Arizonans where they’re at while remaining financially principled. $259 million is going right back to Arizona families with a tax rebate. For the first time since the 2017 budget, Arizona’s 2024 budget includes no new net ongoing spending. In fact, we reduced our spending to $17.8 billion. We’re proud that Arizona’s budget is structurally balanced, it gives back to Arizonans, and its programs are fully paid for. This budget not only meets our needs, it protects our values and puts Arizona in a fantastic position to adapt to tomorrow’s challenges without burdening taxpayers.

CONGRESSWOMAN DEBBIE LESKO has reintroduced the Amateur Radio Communications Improvement Act to eliminate the current Symbol Rate Limit set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and replace it with a 2.8 kilohertz (kHz) bandwidth limit. The bill brings regulations up to speed with modern technological advances in amateur radio.“Increased amounts of data can be put on the spectrum due to advances in modern technology, so there is little need for the FCC to place limits on symbol rates,” said Congresswoman Lesko. “That is why I am proud to reintroduce this important legislation to update the FCC’s rules and increase the speed of transmission so that amateur radio operators can more efficiently and effectively transmit messages during times of crisis, such as natural disasters. ARRL extends its deepest appreciation Lesko for her continued leadership on behalf of Amateur Radio licensees, and her supportive actions on communications issues that impact her constituents and the nation,” said Amateur Radio Relay League’s (ARRL) Legislative Committee. “The introduction of the Amateur Radio Communications Improvement Act Lesko to remove a long-outdated symbol rate limit restricting the speed of amateur digital transmissions will substantially increase the ability of amateur radio to provide more timely and efficient message handling during natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and forest fires. Lesko’s foresight in introducing this legislation will serve as a model for the elimination of regulatory barriers to more intensive spectrum sharing.” This legislation eliminates the Symbol Rate Limit in 47 CFR part 97, and replace it with the 2.8kHz bandwidth limit. 2.8kHz is already used to set the maximum bandwidth of an amateur station in the 60-meter band.
CONGRESSMAN ANDY BIGGS: The House Judiciary Committee held a committee markup that mainly focused on items related to National Police Week. We marked up and passed the following legislation out of committee:
H.R. 2494, the Protect Our Law enforcement with Immigration Control and Enforcement (POLICE) Act of 2023
H. Res. 363, Expressing support for recognizing “National Police Week”;
H.R. 3091, the Federal Law Enforcement Officer Service Weapon Purchase Act;
H. Con. Res. 40, Expressing support for local law enforcement officers and condemning efforts to defund or dismantle local law enforcement agencies;
H.R. 288, the Separation of Powers Restoration Act or “SOPRA”; and
H.R. 3089, “NDO Fairness Act.”
CONGRESSWOMAN DEBBIE LESKO has released a statement on the U.S. House of Representatives’ passage of the Secure the Border Act: “I was proud to vote for House Republicans’ H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act. I represent a border state and have been to the southern border multiple times. We are unquestionably facing a historic border crisis, yet the Biden Administration has wrongly allowed Title 42 to expire without a plan to secure our southern border. This will be an unmitigated disaster, and it is just the latest in a long line of catastrophic border policies from this administration. House Republicans have a solution. The Secure the Border Act is a critical piece of legislation to disincentivize illegal immigration, restart construction of the border wall, reverse the Biden Administration’s en masse parole policy, end catch and release, and reinstate President Trump’s successful Remain in Mexico policy. House Republicans have proven we are the party of secure borders, and I will continue to work to restore our nation’s border security and protect Arizona’s communities. It’s time for President Biden and congressional Democrats to take responsibility for this crisis and work with Republicans to secure the border.”
CONGRESSMAN ANDY BIGGS: With the Biden Administration terminating the Title 42 public health order at the southern border—an order that has quickly expelled hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens during the COVID-19 outbreak—it is imperative to address the anticipated surge of illegal aliens expected to take advantage of the policy change. \H.R. 2, the Secure The Border Act of 2023, passed in the House last night and helps us get closer to securing the southern border and restoring integrity in our immigration system. It is the most comprehensive immigration package I have seen while serving in Congress.
CONGRESSMAN ANDY BIGGS: The House Oversight & Accountability Committee held a hearing titled ESG Part I: An Examination of Environmental, Social, and Governance Practices with Attorneys General. ESG is a woke political agenda that is infiltrating American business. ESG priorities are being used by activist shareholders to push a radical, far-left ideology, demanding that companies reduce energy production companies, cut off business relationships with firearms stores and manufacturers, and conduct divisive DEI audits of their workforce. These actions come at the expense of company profitability, and ultimately, at the expense of Arizona retirees and pensioners. State Attorneys General have been on the front lines fighting woke corporate leaders and the Biden Administration, who are pushing for ESG priorities at the expense of our constitutional rights, and economic, energy, and national security needs of the United States. That’s wrong and my colleagues and I will continue to find legislative solutions to block this heinous practice from continuing.
CONGRESSMAN ANDY BIGGS:,The House Oversight & Accountability Committee held a press conference to unveil more information relating to the Biden Family’s shady business schemes. We pointed to financial records tracing at least $10 million from foreign nationals and related companies to the Biden family, their associates, and their companies. The Bidens took steps to hide payments they received from foreign nationals, including from China and Romania.
