- 11. McCain-Assisting PAC Misleads Voters about Conservative Opponent Kelli Ward
by Patrick O'Malley and Anita Christy
The Arizona Grassroots Action PAC has been running a negative ad about Kelli Ward for weeks on radio stations and FaceBook. The ad claims she failed to support our military with the funding needed to pay the troops. It also claims she sponsored a bill to prevent law enforcement in Arizona from cooperating with the feds to prevent terrorism.
Both claims are false.
Every year, Congress passes a National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to fund the military. A serious criticism of the 2013 NDAA was that it continued to include a provision that allows the military to detain individuals, including US citizens, indefinitely and without trial, as part of the war on terror.
Kelli Ward was a State Senator and couldn’t vote on the NDAA, but she was asked about the bill and specifically about the indefinite detention of individuals issue on a talk radio show. The show is Love, Guns, and Freedom with Luca Zanna, and the discussion about the NDAA with Kelli Ward is part of the December 1, 2013 show. That’s where the quote “I don’t support the bill” comes from. It was in response to a direct question about the indefinite detention provision.
In 2014, many brave conservatives joined Ted Cruz in opposing this tyranny for the same reason given by Kelli Ward. See Ted Cruz: Indefinite Detention Retained in NDAA 2014.
The second issue concerns Arizona SB1156 in 2014. Dr. Ward was the prime sponsor, along with 13 co-sponsors. The Grassroots Action PAC claims the bill would restrict Arizona law enforcement from cooperating with the feds to fight terrorism. Do you remember back when we found out the NSA was monitoring our phone calls? That it wasn’t just suspected terrorists' international calls like we’d been told? It was everybody’s calls all the time? And people were wondering what had happened to their Fourth Amendment protections from search and seizure? SB1156 stated that the NSA and other federal agencies that wanted cooperation from local law enforcement in their investigations and wanted to collect information in Arizona had to get a warrant. No cooperation without a warrant.
The AZ Grassroots Action PAC was organized in 2014 supposedly to support or oppose multiple federal candidates and is classified as an independent expenditure committee.
Not quite. According to an article in Politico titled McCain's big purge:
- 14. Rep. Bob Thorpe's Letter Regarding Transgender Bathrooms
Recently, Gilbert Watch published Arizona Joins Texas in Lawsuit to Stop Federal Overreach. Arizona joined this lawsuit following a letter from Arizona lawmaker Representative Bob Thorpe (R-LD6). Rep. Thorpe has provided the letter to Gilbert Watch, as well as the data for how the State, Local and Federal education funds break down for 2014-2015.
Dear Arizona Superintendent of Schools Diane Douglas and Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich:
Legislators have been receiving numerous complaints from constituents who are very concerned with the threatening tone of the May 13, 2016 letter from U.S. Attorney General Lynch and U.S. Department of Education Secretary King.
The letter coerces our nation’s K-12 public schools and colleges to ensure that transgender students must be allowed to use the gender designated restrooms, changing rooms and locker facilities of their choosing, not necessarily that of their biological gender. It has been estimated that approximately 0.3% of U.S. individuals identify themselves as transgender.Click here to read more

- 18. BLM Agents in Oregon Burned up Cattle, Homes, Buildings, Fences, Grassland
If you haven't been following the Hammond case in Harney County, Oregon, click HERE for the timeline, dating back to the 1970’s, of the cruel and corrupt methods used by both the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM), to drive this family, and many other ranchers, off their land. Click HERE for a Simple Action You Can Take to Help the Hammond Family.
Ask yourself: Why are we hearing about so many more catastrophic fires ever since--thanks to the environmentalists and federal agencies--private cattle ranchers and lumber operations have been driven off the land? Add to this that the federal government controls 3 out of every 10 acres of land in America and is power hungry for more. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, said the government’s “massive” control over land has preserved less than 1 percent of endangered species and instead harmed individuals whose livelihoods depend on land ownership.
Oregon ranchers Steven Hammond and his father Dwight were sentenced in June 2012 as “Arsenal Terrorists.” The maximum punishment for this federal crime is death. So, what did these ranchers do to warrant their time in prison, and the likelihood that they will be imprisoned again?Click here to read more
- 19. Constitution Week USA - Gilbert - September 16-23
Constitution Week USA is both an educational opportunity and a celebration of the United States Constitution of America, which was signed on September 17, 1787. Constitution Week has taken place in Gilbert since it was founded by John Lewis in 2002. Lewis is the current Mayor of Gilbert.
On August 2, 1956, Congress requested that the President of the United States proclaim the week beginning September 17 and ending September 23 of each year as "Constitution Week."
This year's Gilbert celebration begins September 16 with Scout Night, which provides an opportunity for scouts to obtain citizenship merit badges. Another Scout Night occurs on September 23. Both events occur at Mesquite Jr. High School, from 7:00 - 8:30 pm. For more information and to register, click HERE.Click here to read more
- 20. Religious Convictions of America's Founders: George Read
"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor." Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776
George Read: Delaware. Read was the only signer of the Declaration of Independence who voted against it on July 2, 1776. He and Thomas McKean were deadlocked on the vote for independence. To break the deadlock, Caesar Rodney rode the 80-mile journey to Philadelphia thereby allowing Delaware to join 11 other states voting in favor of the resolution of independence. Read was not unfriendly to the liberties of his country, nor cowardly or selfish. He simply thought the move to be premature and unwise. Ultimately, he rejoiced that his fears were groundless and affixed his signature to the Declaration, alongside Thomas McKean and Caesar Rodney.Click here to read more
