AZ Candidate For AZ Senate Tom Morrissey Fact Checking President Obama

You may recall that a few weeks ago, our illustrious president spoke of past presidents making prisoner swaps at the end of wars that took place on their watch, much like his swap he said convincingly. carried this quote,  “This is what happens at
the end of wars,” President Barack Obama said Tuesday when he was asked about swapping American Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban terrorists.  

"That was true for George Washington, that was true for Abraham Lincoln, that was true for FDR. That’s been true of every combat situation, that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back.  And that’s the right thing to do.”

While that sounds good, let's check our historical facts-  the Revolutionary War ended in 1783 and Washington did not become president until 1789.  

Lincoln was assassinated in mid-April, 1865 and the war didn't end until May, the month following.  

As for FDR, he died of a stroke before the end of WWII.  So there you have it, none of these presidents were in office at the ends of those wars, making it impossible for them to make any prisoner swaps.

So much for our historically illiterate president.  You would think that someone on his staff would  keep him from making these foolish blunders, but speaking half-truths and telling whole lies has become his pattern of speech when it comes to the American public

Sal DiCiccio Phoenix City Council: Dirty politics/conflict of interest-pension reform

Pension Reform & City of Phoenix Conflict of Interest
The faces of the anti-pension reform are clear: Mayor Stanton in his own words ordered staff NOT to answer conflict of interest questions regarding biased financial reports and the preparation of a key presentation. All done with hard working taxpayer money -- yours. But, it gets worse. A lot worse ... the Arizona Republic said the "Phoenix Council Betrays Voters, Dishonors Themselves" and called their actions "dirty" when the Mayor/Council adopted "a wildly misleading ballot description ..."

Read the full back story below and then you decide.

The conflict of interest by government staff has been ignored by the local media. City Staff are direct beneficiaries of the current system that THEY helped write reports for, hire consultants for, hire attorneys for, and made presentations for which blasted the citizens pension reform initiative.   
*You’ve been told pension spiking stopped. Not true. It is still costing you $19 million per year.

*The co-chair of the anti-pension reform committee used hard working taxpayer money to conduct a financial analysis of the citizens pension reform initiative, which excluded major savings the citizens initiative gives taxpayers ... The anti-pension reform co-chair is also a direct beneficiary of the city pension scheme. 
*This same report was then used by city staff in a prepared presentation. Again, using taxpayer money.  
*The City of Phoenix Employees Retirement Board (COPERS), made up of direct beneficiaries of the pension scheme include the anti-pension reform co-chair, current city staff, City of Phoenix retirees, and one citizen not tied to the system. They used your money to give the guidelines, prepare the reports and then used those same reports in a public setting ... Again, all using taxpayer money.
*8 of 9 of the COPERS board members are either current or future beneficiaries of the pension system. Why would they want to change it?

But here is the worst example of all…..  staff was involved in preparing, presenting, and justifying alternative ballot proposals all meant to confuse the voters, and if passed would have made any FUTURE reforms virtually impossible.  

Bottom line, buried in all the legal mumbo jumbo of section 43.1 is language that effectively cuts off all future pension reform unless another ballot initiative includes “striker” the language (a-c) which would repeal the entire plan. The other effect of section 43.1 is to create direct legal conflict with EVERY section of the citizen’s initiative - effectively voiding the entire citizens initiative. All ordered by beneficiaries of the system and then used by the politicians to discredit the initiative ... again, using your money.

I will continue to keep you apprised and will continue to represent your interests at City Hall.  The next report will show you shenanigans that lead to Phoenix spending over $2 million advertising your garbage. You will be more than amused with how the politicians are spending your money.

Your friend,
Sal DiCiccio
Phoenix City Council; District 6

AZ Rep. Paul Gosar Stands Behind Israel and Against its Enemies

Press Release
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement in support of the state of Israel and the ongoing attacks against it:
“For decades, we have heard that Israel is our biggest ally in the Middle East. I stand firmly behind that manifesto. I was pleased to hear that President Obama picked up his Presidential telephone to call 

Prime Minister Netanyahu, but I believe that we need to send a more defined message to Israel’s foes: if you are Israel’s enemy, then you are an enemy of the Unite States.

“I introduced an amendment to the FY15 National Defense Authorization Act in order to fully support Israel’s lawful exercise of self-defense, including actions to halt aggression. It is time that our actions speak louder than our words. Recently, Israel intercepted Iranian-funded weapons headed for Gaza. Unfortunately, this is part of a long culture of providing weapons and rocket parts to terrorist cells based in the Gaza strip. Therefore, Israel should have the absolute right to protect her citizen’s from attacks launched by Hamas terrorists.
“If we do not stand in support of Israel, we will witness the demise of our greatest ally in the Middle East due to lack of support and action from the White House. I urge all my House colleagues  to remain committed towards pushing this Administration to firmly stand behind Israel.”


Mark Brnovich Applauds Gov. Brewer for Protecting Arizona’s Sovereignty

Tom Horne again a no-show on critical issue of driver licenses for non-citizens
Today, Republican candidate for Attorney General Mark Brnovich commended Governor Brewer for her continued efforts to defend state sovereignty and enforce Arizona law as it pertains to banning driver licenses for non-citizens. Governor Brewer continues to fight for Arizona in the face of executive overreach by the Obama administration. Tom Horne? Not so much.

When the Governor sought legal guidance in order to defend Arizona’s driver’s license requirements, she chose to hire outside counsel rather than entrust Tom Horne with the case. And, today, when the liberal, San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the Obama administration instead of Arizona citizens, what did we hear from Tom Horne as the state’s top lawyer? Crickets.

“Where is Arizona’s Attorney General?” asked Brnovich. “Why should Arizona taxpayers continue footing the bill because Tom Horne is too distracted or disinterested to do his job? Why should Arizona citizens pay the price for his incompetence?”

“Now is when Arizona needs a strong Attorney General who will stand up to the Obama administration and defend state law. I am the only candidate in this race, Republican or Democrat, who will side with the citizens of Arizona and protect our sovereignty.”

Even My Opponents Think My Campaign Is Hot! Kathy Littlefield Scottsdale City Council Candidate

We have had much good news lately at the Littlefield for Council campaign. New endorsements have poured in, from groups such as the Coalition of Greater Scottsdale, police and firefighters, and leaders such as former State Senator and current Phoenix City Councilman Jim Waring. And my performance at the candidate forums has generated many new supporters.

In fact, my campaign is going so well my opponents have targeted me with this election’s first negative campaign! You may have seen the “No On Kathy” signs sprouting up around town, and make no mistake, there is more to come. When I fought the third-of-a-billion-dollar property tax increase last fall, my PAC was outspent by the special interests 52 to 1! I expect those same special interests will be just as generous to my opponents in this campaign  - they will work hard to keep me off the City Council. I need your help if I am to win this election and be Your Voice On Council
Please donate today.  Any amount will make a difference. In this election cycle contributions are limited to $2,500 for individuals, but any amount you can afford will help.

Being a Good Neighbor: Ken Bennett AZ Candidate For Governor

Ken Bennett for Governor

The principles of being good neighbors as countries are the same principles as neighbors on a street. 
Watch Video
If someone wants to visit or stay a while, they call ahead, arrive at the front door, we meet them at the front door, and welcome them in with open arms. They don’t hop the fence, sneak into the garage and live out of the freezer.
Time and time again, Arizona has suffered from our federal government’s inaction related to illegal immigration. Now, President Obama is requesting a $3.7 billion bailout to fix a problem exacerbated by his inaction.
First and foremost, the federal government must act to secure the border.  
Secondly, we MUST streamline the process of legal immigration.  
As Senate President, I led the charge to pass immigration legislation that would have put our state in a better position to deal with border security today.  The bill would have invested millions for high-tech radar detection systems, interdiction efforts, detention facilities and an allocation for the National Guard to enhance border security.  It was incomprehensible that Governor Napolitano vetoed the bill at the time.  
Illegal immigration impacts Arizona every day, and the time for excuses and posturing has long since passed.  As Governor, I will push for additional resources for DPS and our National Guard to support federal law enforcement officials along the border.  
The border can and will be secured. And we’ll do it without breaking the bank, or waiting for the federal government.

Former Governor Fife Symington Supports My Campaign-Michele Reagan

I am thrilled to announce an endorsement from another influential, Arizona leader – Former Governor Fife Symington.  Governor Symington was a champion for small businesses and was able to ease regulatory burdens and cut red-tape to allow these business to prosper.  My hope is to continue that mission by simplifying and modernizing the business filing system in the Secretary of State’s Office.  I am thankful to have his support.
“It was my mission as Governor to protect Arizona small businesses.  I can say without question, Michele Reagan has rightly earned the reputation as a guardian of small business.  Michele has been a tireless advocate for the small business community, while also championing legislation that sought to preserve the integrity of our election processes.  Her knowledge and experience with both issues make her the clear choice to be Arizona’s next Secretary of State.”

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery endorses Andy Tobin for Congress

Bill Montgomery Endorses Andy Tobin for Congress

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery announced his endorsement for Andy Tobin’s congressional campaign. Montgomery cited Tobin’s leadership on key issues such as illegal immigration, CPS, and public safety.

“I have worked with Speaker Andy Tobin for years and specifically in support of law enforcement and victims of crime. As a law enforcement official, I watched his passionate leadership to reform Arizona’s broken Child Protective Services. Andy’s record of support for the fight against illegal immigration, child pornography, and support for public safety puts him in a class of his own. Andy Tobin will make that same difference in Washington as a congressman. I endorse Andy Tobin for Congress because America needs him just like Arizonans have needed him.”

“I am honored to have the support of County Attorney Montgomery.  He is a man of impeccable integrity and a statewide leader on issues of victims’ rights and protecting our children.”

Andy Tobin and his wife of 28 years, Jennifer, are the proud parents of five children- three daughters and two sons. Tobin is a small business owner who has devoted his life to positively affecting his community through job creation, public service and advocating for conservative principles. Tobin’s focus has been on creating sustainable jobs, helping small businesses succeed, building a stronger middle class and putting Arizona back on track. While serving as Speaker of the Arizona House of Representatives, Tobin drastically cut government by 25 percent, balanced Arizona’s budget and presided over the largest tax cuts in Arizona’s history, saving Arizona taxpayers millions of dollars.

Tobin has fought for your family’s freedoms, your prosperity and your community for the past eight years while serving in the Arizona Legislature. He continues to lead the fight to stop the implementation of the disastrous ObamaCare. As your Representative in Congress, Andy Tobin will represent your voice, and lead the charge in fighting for you against the wasteful spending, government intrusion, and out-of-touch insiders that are taking away your freedoms.

Join Andy Tobin today!
