- 1. Members of the Freedom Caucus Speak Out about the AHCA's Bait and Switch
When the House of Representatives, mostly led by members of The Freedom Caucus, recently refused to pass the American Health Care Act (AHCA), it seemed like a treasonous debacle to the American people. Even President Trump expressed his anger. Several Pro-Life groups supported the AHCA, because it would have defunded Planned Parenthood.
But, what the American people didn't know was that the American Health Care Act would not have accomplished its primary mission and promise: Repeal and Replace ObamaCare.
The American Health Care Act was a kludge of a health-care policy. Described as a way to simultaneously repeal key elements of the Affordable Care Act and replace them with market-oriented reforms, the bill in its final form managed to do little of either. Freedom Caucus members were particularly concerned about the willingness of House leaders to leave the vast majority of Obamacare’s regulations on the books — after Republicans spent seven years promising that the party would “repeal and replace Obamacare.” Even the rationale that the AHCA would be better than nothing was hard to justify; it probably would have further destabilized the individual market, while millions fewer would have been insured. See It's Wrong for Trump to Blame Conservatives.
Even as Obamacare continues funding Planned Parenthood, the foundation supporting abortion is weakening through other means. Since the AHCA's defeat, President Trump has taken action to defund a UN agency that supports forced abortion. Also on March 31, Congress voted to "restore the ability of states to stop one stream of our tax dollars going to Planned Parenthood and redirect it to community health centers that provide comprehensive primary and preventive health care.” See Major Victories for Life and Bill Passes to allow states to redirect funds away from Abortion Clinics.
And, on April 7, 2017, Judge Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards tweeted that Gorsuch's confirmation is "the worst" because Gorsuch has written that "the intentional taking of human life by private persons is ALWAYS wrong." See Why Justice Gorsuch will have an immediate (and big) impact on the Supreme Court.
Hear what several members of Congress, including the House Freedom Caucus, have to say about the disastrous flaws in the AHCA, and why they must be corrected.Click here to read more

- 4. Christine Jones: Serial Exaggerator, Phony
It is beyond me why the voters in CD5 would want to be saddled with Christine Jones as their Representative in Congress. She’s clueless about the character and demographics of its citizens--she lives in CD9, not CD5. How do you “represent” citizens you know nothing about? CD5 is one of the most conservative, family-oriented districts in Maricopa County. After reviewing the history of Christine Jones, my head hurts. But not as badly as the perpetual migraine that she will inflict on CD5. Take away her paid handlers and well, think of a Conservative, and then take away courage, conviction, and good judgment.
Jones has a history of contradicting herself to the point of absurdity. Add to this a shaky grasp of the Republican platform, high praise for Hillary Clinton, and a tendency toward self-aggrandizement.
Christine Jones wants to be...Governor...Secretary of State... Mayor...U.S. Senator...U.S. Representative...Somebody!
Her reason for not taking on her own district (CD9) defies logic.
CD9 is currently represented by Democrat/Liberal/Leftist Kyrsten Sinema. Jones would be a conservative heroine if she had run in her own district and beat Sinema! In November 2015, Jones was asked if she planned to run against Sinema in 2016. She stated "Although (the 9th District) appears eminently winnable, pursuing a seat in Congress at this time is not the highest and best use of my time." See Christine Jones Won't Challenge Kyrsten Sinema.
By April 2016, she decided to pole vault into CD5 and run against a solid constitutional conservative, former Senate President Andy Biggs.
This carpet bagging didn’t sit well with the Republican Leadership of CD5. They quickly responded in an 4/8/2016 Intellectual Conservative article titled CD5 Republican Legislative District Chairs call for Local Representation as follows:Click here to read more
- 5. Andy Biggs: True Constitutional Conservative for Congress
Senator Andy Biggs is a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Congressional District 5. As demonstrated during his tenure in the Arizona Senate, Andy Biggs knows more about the U.S. Constitution, the Founders’ lives, Founding documents and letters, and historical books than 98% of the entire House and Senate in Washington, DC. Certainly more than the current President. Certainly more than anyone running against him.
More importantly, Senator Biggs respects the Constitution and his Oath to uphold it. One group of supporters that appreciates Senator Biggs' knowledge of the U.S. Constitution and his ability to educate other legislators and his own constituents about its enumerated powers are the leaders of Arizona's Anti-Common Core battle.Click here to read more
- 7. Outing Ray Strauss, the Phony Conservative Running Against Rep. Paul Gosar in AZ-4
Did you receive the FALSE flyer paid for by Right Way Super-PAC stating that Paul Gosar (CD4) voted against funding for our military and their families? I suggest you read this article titled Outing Ray Strauss, the Phony Conservative Running Against Rep. Paul Gosar in AZ-4. In my own experience, Rep. Gosar is one of the most Conservative, Constitutional, pro-military representatives in Congress. Ray Strauss is the opposite. "Rep. Gosar’s reputation as a fighter for the conservative agenda has left him as one of the few reliable full spectrum conservatives in the House."
The article begins:
It requires a breathtaking level of deceit to attempt to run to the right of limited government constitutional conservative Congressman Paul Gosar and attack him as an “insider.”
But with the help of a shadowy lobbyist-funded PAC – Right Way PAC – which was founded by K Street insider Daniel Flynn, that is exactly what Gosar’s challenger Ray Strauss is trying to do.

- 10. Dr. Kelli Ward; "Spoiler" Alex Meluskey; and John McCain's Relentless Attacks on Kelli Ward
Recently, a supporter of Alex Meluskey stepped into an email that was sent from Gila County Republican Committee Chairman Gary Morris to the GCRC Precinct Committeemen announcing an upcoming PC meeting. This Alex Meluskey Supporter isn't one of our PC's. He took issue with an item that Chairman Morris had included in his email, which was a comment from Yavapai GOP Activist Jim Dutton which appeared in the 7/2/2016 MCRC News Briefs.
Mr. Dutton wrote: "Time to Take One for the Team - I wish to thank all of the Senatorial candidates for their willingness to run against John McCain. All of you have stressed the importance of retiring McCain for the good of Arizona and its citizens. It’s time now for each of you to evaluate the best course of action in order to accomplish the goal of removing McCain. You must put your egos aside and allow your patriotism and professed desire to serve your State and Country to be your guide. Everyone knows that multiple candidates in the primary race will only help John McCain. Therefore, we the people beseech Alex Meluskey, Scott McBean and Clair Van Steenwyck to take the high road and withdraw from this race today. The writing is on the wall guys and it’s time to face reality. Play the men for your people and unite behind the only candidate who has proven to be a challenger to John McCain – Kelli Ward. How do you want to be remembered? As a spoiler who helped get McCain elected or as a true patriot whose self-sacrifice and patriotism were clearly demonstrated for all of Arizona to see? Please, for all of Arizona! Take one for the Team."
The Supporter fired back at all the PC's as follows:
"WHY doesn't WARD DROP OUT and let somebody with a CONSERVATIVE VOTING RECORD run??WE THE PEOPLE HAVENT EVER AND WILL NOT VOTE FOR LIBERALS RUNNING ASD CONSERVATIVES.Check her voting record then Vote for Alex Meluskey for #AZSEN2016 #DUMPWARDINAZ."
Several of our PC's nicely, but firmly, responded to the Supporter, with comments favorable to Mr. Dutton's MCRC post.
Since I'm a GCRC PC, I'm publishing my response to the Meluskey Supporter, which follows:Click here to read more
