Seriously? Maricopa Cpunty Republican Tyler Bowyer "A Trainer for Turning Point USA"

by Lisa Beightol Gray

The word RINO is thrown around like confetti at a party and as a general rule I don’t use it for various reasons. However, we all know what it means -- Republican In Name Only.
If our County Chairman is helping to grow and educate another political party, wouldn’t he be considered a Republican In Name Only -- RINO?
I received an email highlighting the fact that our County Chairman works for an organization called Turning Point USA 
( ). This organization claims to be non-partisan, but wait, isn’t the Maricopa County Chairman a Republican?
In May of THIS year, a conference advertised as LPEX (LIBERTARIAN POLITICAL EXPO) was held in Nevada. It was surprising to learn that our REPUBLICAN County Chairman was listed as a “TRAINER” at this expo. 
( )
So what exactly is LPEX? In a nutshell, according to their website, LPEX develops LIBERTARIAN leaders. (
And why should people attend LPEX? Again, according to their website people should attend who want to “Shape the future of the Liberty movement,” AND “LPEX develops individuals into leaders so they can build effective libertarian organizations.”
Don’t believe me? Read it for yourself:
Here’s a couple questions for the leaders of the Maricopa County GOP and my fellow Precinct Committeemen/women:
What party is the Republican Party County Chairman elected to lead? Obviously, it’s the REPUBLICAN party. So why is he TRAINING LIBERTARIANS?
I’m not aware of him holding any “training” for Republican PCs. In fact, while he was away training Libertarians, we were less than 60 days away from early ballots being mailed to Phoenix voters. Only a mere 20.81% of Phoenix voters showed up to vote! And this is TOTAL VOTERS, not GOP voters. What could have been accomplished if there was a more concerted effort by the county Chairman to get out the vote? Because of the lack of GOTV efforts by the county party, a liberal mayor was reelected and a MULTI-BILLION dollar, light rail expansion was passed.
So, are we going to look the other way, again, or do we want a REPUBLICAN Chairman leading us? Someone who would actually help to get REPUBLICANS elected. These actions are fully in opposition to all that the grassroots do and are doing to get conservative Republicans elected.
I believe the County Chairman needs to resign. This is a HUGE conflict of interest and it’s evident that he doesn’t have the best interest of our County Party at heart.
How exactly does helping members from another party get elected, align with our mission, platform and values?
Last December, was he one of the yes votes who voted to strip PCs of their voting rights and/or censure them for supporting a candidate in another party? If so, wouldn’t “training” members of another political party how to grow their influence and win elections be worthy of the same fate? Shouldn’t the County Chairman be held to a higher standard? Or does the County Chairman get to lead by the motto, “Do as I say, not as I do”?
Will others call for his resignation? I guess we’ll find out.

Maricopa County Republican Chair Tyler Bowyer:Disturbing Event that is Happening on Saturday in Mesa

I don't usually forward these kind of emails, but this is the real story of the disturbing event happening in Mesa on Saturday:

"On Saturday, please join the Guy who voted for Loretta Lynch, the Guy who voted for Medicaid Expansion, the Guy who is cow-towing to the LGBTQ lobby in Mesa, the Guy who abandoned his cityf to become a lobbyist and the Guy who coordinated with Leftist Randy Parraz to take out fellow Republicans..."

"To welcome the last big Presidential failure the RNC pushed for a special event in support of the Guy who recently voted to support Obama and put our National Debt over $20 Trillion." Tyler Bowyer
A J Lafaro says:
Every person featured is a RINO.  I'm surprised they didn't include Graham. I bet he's pissed.
If grassroots conservatives wanted to "Bag a RINO", this would be the place to be. 
T'is the season to once again remind ourselves and as many others as we can, that those who we put in office, "WORK FOR US AND WE DO NOT WORK FOR THEM".  That message didn't go down well when I had the very same conversation with several of them when I was state chair.  They obviously feel entitled and the reason they do is because , until recently they have never been told otherwise.

Fellow patriots,
     It is unfortunate that the featured office-holders in attendance at this event have earned for themselves the scorn and consistently disappointed resentment of the voters whom they were elected to represent.  The chickens have come home to roost for them. 
     In recent years, the townhalls which brought their constituency face to face with them have dwindled and has even been met with distaste from some of these office-holders--seen as unimportant to their intentions in the legislative arena.  For some of them in the U.S. Senate, they even charged admission to their constituents to have the "privilege" of questioning them or listening to hear them speak.
     The citizens have an inalienable right to peacefully express their sentiments, their opinions and their conclusions, and to exercise that right.  I encourage them in bringing their concerns to the public forum.
