- 1. Arizona Constitution Seminar: 11/23/2013
Did you know that the Arizona Constitution is comprised of only 108 pages? Here's the link. The United States Constitution, including all 27 Amendments is comprised of only 21 pages. Here's the link. Did you know that the Arizona Constitution provides more individual protections in some areas than the U.S. Constitution, but that it also contains some of the most destructive, progressive elements as well? Have you heard of the Black Robe Regiment, and its recent resurgence? Here's the link. Did you know that more than ever in the history of America, our religious liberties are being assaulted, and Alliance Defending Freedom is doing all possible to help? Were you aware that when the IRS informs you that you must submit to an audit, they are violating the Fourth Amendment, unless they have obtained a search warrant and proved probable causethat you have broken a law? Here's the link.
We learned this and much more at the 11/23/2013 seminar that was organized by Sue Goodchild and held at the Living Faith Center in Prescott Valley. The cost was a mere $20, and included a wonderful catered lunch.
The speakers were Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne, Arizona Senator Chester Crandell (LD6), former Arizona Senator and Justice of the Peace Lester Pearce, and Shane Krauser, the director of the American Academy for Constitutional Education.
It was eye opening.
Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne spoke about some of the more positive aspects of provisions found in the Arizona Constitution. He first noted the Preamble, which is similar to the U.S. Constitution as well as other states' constitutions all across America:Click here to read more

- 3. Chicago Shootings since Wednesday: 55, 9 Dead
As of Saturday morning, July 6, fifty-five people have been shot across Chicago since Wednesday. Nine are dead. Two boys, ages 5 and 7 among those seriously hurt. Chicago, with a population of 2.7 million people, has some of the most stringent gun laws in America. Chicago is home to President Barack Obama.
On the other hand, Arizona has some of the least stringent gun laws in America. You do not even need to own a concealed carry permit to carry a firearm. In Phoenix, with a population of 1.4 million people, as of last Wednesday, through Saturday morning, no one was shot, and no one lay dead.
Question: Do gun laws keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and the insane? No, gun laws keep firearms out of the hands of law-abiding citizens who use them to protect themselves.
For more information, see Just Facts - Gun Control. You also might want to thank Russell Pearce for standing up for Arizona citizens in protecting our 2nd Amendment Rights. While an Arizona Senator, he authored SB1108, making Arizona #1 in the nation in Second Amendment freedoms. See The Russell Pearce Record.Click here to read more
- 4. 1070 Turns Three While Amnesty Looms
by Sen. Russell Pearce, former president of the Arizona State Senate and current board member of the Arizona Conservative club and chairman of BanAmnestyNow.com. Portions of this article appeared in the May 12, 2013 Sunday edition of the Arizona Republic.
SB-1070 has been extremely successful!
SB-1070 is now three years old. All but a few small pieces have been upheld as constitutional by the highest court in the land, and “America’s toughest anti-illegal immigration law” is not only on the books here in Arizona, but working quite well. Crime rates are dramatically down. Our state, county, and city governments have saved hundreds of millions of dollars in K-12 education with fewer illegal aliens in the classrooms, and saved tens of millions more in social services.
Illegal aliens have taken lives. More than a dozen Phoenix police officers have been killed or maimed by illegal aliens. Cochise County rancher Robert Krentz was murdered during the debate on SB 1070. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered near the border, and the list goes on.Click here to read more
