1. Diane Douglas Underwater; Frank Riggs Swimming to the Top

According to a recent Capitol Times Yellow Sheet Report titled “Underwater is a Bad Place to Be,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas is going to have an uphill battle to get reelected.  

A recent poll by GOP consultant Chris Baker shows incumbent Douglas with ratings of 15 percent favorability and a whopping 47 percent unfavorability.  Another 38 percent had no opinion. “I think Diane Douglas has probably reached the point of no return,” Baker told the Capitol Times reporter.

As stated in the article, “the poll surveyed 500 self-described likely voters (all of whom have voted in at least one of the last two general elections) from June 14-15, with a partisan breakdown of 35 percent Republicans, 31 percent Democrats and 33 percent independents. Of those 500 voters, 70 percent were contacted on landlines via autodial, while 30 percent were interviewed by live callers on their cell phones. The poll had a margin of error of plus-minus 4.9 percent.”

This is what happens when a novice takes office with no business or executive experience. 

Arizona needs a strong, tested and proven Superintendent with the right combination of executive experience, managerial skills, knowledge of education policies and practices, integrity, and judgment to lead our state's K-12 schools!  That person is Frank Riggs.

3. Jimmy Lindblom and LaCinda Lewis Endorsed by Pro Common Core, Anti-Parent "Stand for Children"

Stand for Children/Arizona has just endorsed Jimmy Lindblom, who is running for a Senate seat against Warren Petersen in LD12, and LaCinda Lewis, who is competing against Eddie Farnsworth  and Travis Grantham in the House.

 A review of Stand for Children/Arizona's website indicates that this group proudly supports the entire Common Core agenda, aka Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards, including AzMerit.  

Stand is proud to have defeated a litany of anti-Common Core legislation, as well as other bills that parents have fought for, including the defeated SB1455.  This bill would have acknowledged that parents know more than the State about what's best for their own children.  These parents wanted to opt their children out of the unvalidated, secretive AzMerit.  Stand would have none of it.  See "Top Legislative Results."   

Parents and their children suffered verbal and emotional abuse at the hands of school administrators, teachers, other parents, and other students for daring to opt out of AZMerit.  Remember?  See Sen. Allen calls for schools to respect parents over assessment concernsThe Schools' War On Arizona's Children: Part 1The Schools' War on Arizona's Children: Part 2 Online Charter Schools The Schools' War on Arizona's Children: Part 3 Emotional Child Abuse.

Voters should be wary of groups that "sound" wonderful.  Scratch the surface, and you discover how pro-Statist and anti-Family they truly are.   Expect More Arizona is another such group.  See Is Expect More Arizona in it for the Money?

6. Itasca Small for Arizona Senate (LD25): DEFEAT Bob Worsley!

Itasca Small is an official write-in candidate running against Bob Worsley in LD25.  Ms. Small is a long-time supporter and activist for Arizona's sovereign rights, local control over education, and stopping the Common Core machine.  She is pro-Bill of Rights, Parental Rights, and Individual Liberty.  She is against the misuse of tax dollars, including subsidizing corporate welfare and taxpayer-paid entitlement programs, such as ObamaCare (Medicaid Expansion). Her campaign slogan is "Liberty Begins in our Own Backyard!  SMALL for small government!"  

Itasca is not a passive observer of the Arizona Legislature; rather, she has spent hundreds of hours at our State Capitol as a citizen lobbyist, defending both our U.S. Constitution and Arizona Constitution, and.educating legislators on the proper role of government.  

I have known and worked with Ms. Small on many occasions.  She is unapologetically passionate about her convictions. Yet, she is always open, respectful, and gracious when responding to differing views.  Her humility is refreshing.    See her article titled Arizona Standards Committee Working on a Faulty Premise

States Ms. Small, "I am not a natural speaker.  But God gives me the words, and, in spite of my aversion to public speaking, live audiences are usually inspired by my message.  I'm thankful that God helps me to do as well as I do." 

If you want a candidate who will be faithful to her Oath of Office, please write in Itasca Small for Arizona Senate (LD25).  

In this short video clip from a meeting in November, 2015, she spontaneously and passionately speaks to some issues relating to Common Core.

8. Bob Worsley's Anti-Parent Votes

You will find this statement on Legislative District 25 incumbent Senator Bob Worsley’s website:  “Family has defined my life..”  How nice…..for him and his family.  But he has no respect for your family, or your fundamental liberty as a parent to “direct the upbringing, education, health care, and mental health of your children.”  This God-given right is honored and upheld in the Arizona Constitution.  See Arizona Revised Statutes 1-601 and 1-602 explicitly protect parental rights.  

Please consider Official Write-In Candidate Itasca Small, NOT Bob Worsley. 

Nobody--and no entity--has the right to insert themselves between you as a responsible, caring, and protective parent and your own child.  Nobody!

But that’s exactly what Bob Worsley (along with his Democrat allies and arrogant RINO cronies Jeff DialAdam Driggs, and Steve Pierce) have been doing.    

They have voted against every attempt by true conservative legislators to return our K-12 educational system to Arizona, local school districts, and parents.  

Worsley and his RINO gang have repeatedly voted against parental opt-out rights.  They have repeatedly voted to retain the nationalized Common Core system, including its aligned curriculum, and whatever assessments (PARCC, AZMERIT) are aligned with them. (If you haven't educated yourself about the unvalidated, federal/corporate take-over of our local K-12 schools, I suggest you begin by spending 40 minutes watching BUILDING THE MACHINE - The Common Core Documentary.  You will know more about CC than 90% of elected officials at both the state and federal levels. Also read  The National Common Core Standards System.  Also see articles listed below.)   

Bob Worsley's voting record proves beyond a shadow of doubt that he is very comfortable with Big Government, Big Corporate, and Special Interest control over the education that every Arizona child receives beginning in Kindergarten through Grade 12.  

He has helped defeat excellent bills that would have allowed Arizona, local school boards, and parents determine what's best for Arizona's students.  These bills include:

Itasca Small, a long-time supporter and activist for states rights; local control over education and stopping Common Core; and defending our State Superintendent's constitutional powers over education in our state; is running for State Senator against Bob Worsley (R-LD25 Mesa).  Ms. Small has spent countless hours at our State Capitol educating our legislators on the proper role of government and on restoring local control over education in our public schools.

This is our opportunity to rid LD25 of Bob Worsley who has long been a supporter of more federal involvement in our schools and Obamacare, and who continues to fight against all of our efforts to rid our state of Common Core!   He does not understand states rights and the importance of pushing back against the continual overreach from the federal government.  (See below.)

10. The Language of Liberty: June 24, Mesa

A very wise Queen Creek mother and grand-mother recently said to me:  "I'm very worried about our young people.  They aren't being taught the principles of liberty.  Young people don't know that the Founders created the Constitution, in order to protect them from the chains of captivity, and to encourage self-determination, prosperity, and peace. They don't understand that the Founders of America had experienced tyrannical governments, and that they risked their own lives and fortunes when they signed the Declaration of Independence.  Young Americans need to know."
