City of Flagstaff Blocks Local Firearms Dealer from Advertising
As reported by the Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL) the Flagstaff City Council has decided that they need to support the New Mexico Tyrant-er-Governor in banning guns. Only in this case they’re starting small – by banning a local shop from advertising in the airport. Apparently pictures of happy customers holding firearms and an instructor working with a student at their indoor range “depicts violence.” Obviously the folks in Flag believe that burning down a police station is a “mostly peaceful” protest. This also caught the attention of some AZ State representatives. Arizona State Representatives David Marshall (R-Snowflake). Leo Biasiucci (R-Lake Havasu), and Quang Nguyen (R-Prescott) warned the draft policy “raises a host of constitutional concerns, including viewpoint discrimination, and very likely violates state law,” According to The Arizona Sun Times the draft policy will be revised. Briefs will be following the story.

Arizona Senate Committee Rejects Gov. Hobbs’ Nominee
The Arizona Sun Times is reporting that the AZ Senate is rejecting the nomination of Joan Serviss to run the Arizona Department of Housing for …get this…plagiarism. And here Briefs thought that pretty much everyone (well, everyone other than Joe Biden) learned plagiarism is bad by 3rd grade or so. From the information presented at the hearing, it appears that Ms. Serviss was acting as the human version of a twitter bot.

Regarding Mr. Sorenson’s question in the September 11, 2023 edition of the Briefs [9-11-23 Briefs] concerning the November 7, 2023 jurisdictional elections: The format of the jurisdictional elections is at the discretion of the jurisdiction. All jurisdictions have elected to conduct “all mail” elections for a number of years. This means all eligible voters will receive a ballot by mail. You can still, however, show up to a voting location in person and either drop off your mail ballot, or you can get a new ballot printed and mark it at the voting location. If you have any questions, please contact us at, and please visit our website (Elections.Maricopa.Gov). Thank you Mr. Sorenson!
Tom Platt, PC – LD27
Just think, every single Republican in the Arizona Legislature voted this year (2023) in favor of HCR 2039, which if adopted by the residents of Arizona on the next ballot, would give the Governor of our state the constitutional authority to call a state of emergency whenever they want. Now imagine instead of the New Mexico Governor who called a state of emergency last week, which suspends laws that allow open and concealed carry of firearms for 30 days, imagine it was our current Governor, Katie Hobbs who used her emergency powers to suspend open and concealed carry. That my friends is the constitutional authority that HCR 2039 will give the Arizona governor. The Republicans will tell you that the Governor already has that authority but they don’t. All current laws pertaining to the governor’s emergency powers are unconstitutional. The Republicans want to make these emergency powers constitutional which would allow a governor to be a dictator. They will tell you HCR 2039 will put limitations on the governor’s emergency powers but the truth is the Governor has no constitutional emergency powers now. If HCR 2039 passes, it will be very harmful to our state.

They must be jumping for glee—–but why? The big jump in gas prices, and food, etc. After all, isn’t it all being caused by the “global warming crisis?” If a frog jumped and killed a lynx, it’s “global warming!” If a car gets a flat tire after driving over broken glass, it’s global warming! But who is jumping for glee? Climate change lunatics, dumbocrats, plus rino Trump-hating republican hypocrites. So, what else is new?
Randy Miller
This week we celebrate our constitution, starting September 17th. Usually, there are events around the state for this purpose. However, as I read posts on our political pages for various LD’s in Facebook and others sites, and see the actions taken and words spoken by our own party, I find it troubling that we are about to celebrate the constitution while so very few even know it. Government doesn’t follow it and the people aren’t aware it happens. What are we celebrating? If we want to honor it, do so by learning it and enforcing it. For those that claim they know it, stop supporting actions that clearly aren’t allowed by it. This makes it difficult to believe in a professed understanding.

Hold our elected representatives accountable for not following it and stripping rights from the people. Make the effort to know what you want to do, why you can do it, and be able to articulate this while speaking to the uninformed, which we are in abundance. Otherwise, we are wasting time. Now, we are fighting amongst ourselves, and losing the war – out of ignorance. It’s like watching Curly being poked in the eye by Moe while Larry laughs then being slapped by Moe just for being there doing nothing. Problem is, Moe has no more idea what he is doing than the other two. And we wonder why the “party” loses members and has those that disengage. We are our own worst enemy.

Per Michal Ann Joyner’s post in Briefs 9-7-23 Have you ever pondered that maybe the reason so many ballots have not been returned is because of the lack of viability of the candidates? When Prior AZGOP leader Kelly Ward skewed the Governor debate and endorsed Kari Lake prior to the primary along with a whole slew of other issues. Some of us don’t believe in the lessor of the two evils theory, especially when the candidate line up is so weak
Allen Skillicorn, Fountain Hills Councilman
The State of Arizona has made the collection of sales tax on long-term housing illegal with a new law that takes effect in January of 2025.

The idea that communities would tax housing is absurd and it is a tax that has long needed to be abolished. The elimination of the tax will have an impact on Fountain Hills’ bottom line but instead of wringing our hands, we should be looking at ways to get ahead of surrounding communities.

If we remove the tax early, we can attract more people to our community looking to save money on their rentals. The tax will be banned anyway in 2025. Why not get a head start and ban the tax early and aggressively work to attract more people to our community?

The truth is increasing our population will have a far greater impact on our economy and our community’s tax revenue than the funds we receive from the tax on long-term rentals. Eliminating this tax early will give our community an edge in competing with other communities for new residents, new businesses, and new opportunities.

Eliminating the tax early would be a bold move but it would show our commitment to investing in people and growing our economy. We have an opportunity to display real leadership. The question is – will we take it, or will we be like every other community in Arizona and squeeze every last dollar we can out of this arcane tax while we are legally able to do so and leave our community completely unprepared for life after the Regressive Rental Tax?

The Regressive Rental Tax is going away in 2025. We would be wise to eliminate the tax early and make our community a destination for new residents and new jobs and opportunities. The time to prepare for the future is now.

Thomas Reiner: State Committeeman
The Pendulum and the Pit (with apologies to Edgar Allan Poe)

The purpose here is neither to support nor condemn President Trump as America enters into yet another contentious Presidential Election cycle. Instead, Americans need to realize that an almost unthinkable pit is looming that can engulf and destroy us. What will throw us into that Pit is a swinging Pendulum, sharper, beholden to no one and more dangerous than any Star Wars Death Star ever devised. That Pendulum is already under construction and most people are blind to its very existence.

Politics is increasingly becoming more than a blood sport. All election campaigns allege that the opposing candidate is a poo poo head or worse. That is normal. But something very dangerous is happening this time. The current Party in power is exercising the full force of the FBI, DOJ, and local DAs to persecute President Trump in perfectly timed indictments to prevent him from running from office. The prosecution is rushing to schedule trial dates to coincide with major primaries and the General Election itself. The Washington DC jail is full of January 6 prisoners who languish there because the claim is that there are not enough lawyers and the court schedules are full. No matter whether you heap adulations towards President Trump as being better than sliced bread or wish to eviscerate him on a televised PPV event, or anything in between, something seems amiss. A total of 91 felony allegations spread across four separate indictments have been served against him…so far. This has never happened in American history and there is growing substantial evidence that the indictments are born out of political desire for vengeance and willingness to subvert laws from misdemeanors to felonies.

All of these questionable charges could have been levied two years ago but politicized prosecutors have waited until the Presidential Campaign. One trial will occur one day before Super Tuesday. Politics and hatred are the motive behind this obvious election interference. Look at the sardonic, almost vampiric sneer on the face of Fani Willis invoking the RICO Act on 19 defendants. Look at the arrogant, bloated face of Alvin Bragg as he fails to prosecute anarchists, looters and common criminals but charges Trump with misdemeanors disguised as felonies. Look at the almost AI blank visage of Jack Smith who stands in as a robot for Merrick Garland. Look at the preposterous Florida indictment of Trump Constitutionally possessing documents while ignoring the illegal theft of similar documents by President Biden. Don’t let blind hate blind you. You are not being asked to love President Trump. You are implored to rekindle your love of America… and true justice.

One sided justice will eventually produce a double edged mindless and vengeful pendulum. Once placed in unstoppable motion, that pendulum will swing away from the direction of whichever Party which is currently in power to cut political opponents. This is a hallmark of tyrannical and dictatorial societies where citizens are cowed into remaining silent. That pendulum is slowly starting in motion if we don’t stop it. Whoosh … indict President Trump … whoosh … adios President Biden … whoosh … sayonara Kevin McCarthy … whoosh … later alligator Chuck Schumer … whoosh … bye bye Jim Jordan … whoosh … back and forth until finally… whoosh … up next to bat: YOU and whomever subscribes to your beliefs. We will all be thrown headless into the Pit because no one is safe once justice is no longer blind. Learn from history because all revolutions with the exception of the American Revolution, eventually literally beat and eat their own citizenry on either side. It is only a matter of time for this to occur in America if there only exists an apathetic people full of contempt in their heart.

The only cure is free and fair elections which is the soul of America. It might already be too late.
