1. Defending Old Glory - AZ Sen. John Kavanagh Wants Stealing Flag To Be a Felony

Arizona Republican Senator John Kavanagh (LD23) will be introducing a bill during the upcoming Legislative Session that will make stealing the American flag a Class 6 felony.  In the following Fox News interview, Sen. Kavanagh explains that currently, stealing the flag is only a misdemeanor theft, akin to stealing a pack of gum from a convenience store.  When someone steals a flag from someone's yard, they aren't just stealing something that doesn't belong to them.  Not only is the flag a venerated object, but also, when someone displays the American flag, they are exercising their Constitutionally-guaranteed First Amendment freedom of expression. They might be displaying the flag to express patriotism, mourning someone's death, or as a protest.  This is an important right.

2. Stop the National Popular Vote Compact in Arizona

"Democracy" has a nice ring to it: One Person, One Vote.  However, that's exactly what the Founders did not want: Majority (aka Mob) Rule.  When Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, "A Republic, if you can keep it."  Ours is a Constitutional Republic, but only if we, the people, care enough to participate in keeping it.     

Our presidents are chosen through a combination of a popular vote and the Electoral College that represents the states.  Each state’s entitled allotment of electors equals the number of members in its Congressional delegation: one for each member in the House of Representatives plus two for Senators.  This keeps a handful of the most populous states from dominating all the other states.  For example, Donald Trump won the popular vote in Arizona.  Thus, the Republican party's 11 Electors will vote for president.  Had Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, Arizona's 11 Democrat Electors would be voting for president. (In contrast, California has 55 Electors.) See below for two short videos:  Do you Understand the Electoral College? and The Popular Vote vs the Electoral College.

Unfortunately, there is a movement across America that is gaining traction called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.  It would distort the procedures of the Electoral College.  It would usher in the very "democracy" that the Founders did not want.  It is unconstitutional.

3. Jim O'Connor Announces Run for State Party Chairman of the AZGOP

I have tremendous respect for Jim O’Connor.  In the following press release, you will read about Jim's role in renouncing the National Popular Vote.  I was one of the people he patiently educated regarding its problems.  Ultimately, a group of us were able to convince our Senator, Sylvia Allen, to back away from supporting it.  Jim is true to the Republican platform and has provided leadership in other areas as well, including the passage of HB2088, which protects students against surveys that gather private, personally identifiable information.  He advised his representative in LD23, Heather Carter, "Our 444 Precinct Committeemen are reflecting the opinions of the 70,000 registered republican votes in our district overwhelmingly protecting the rights of parents and children. Please represent these and other republicans who desire to restrain government overreach."  She voted in favor on reconsideration.  Mr. O'Connor has stood firmly in support of legislation that honors parental authority and rejects federal control of education in Arizona.

5. 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?

7. Lindblom and Lewis and their Questionable Endorsements

Jimmy Lindblom is running as a conservative against proven conservative, Warren Petersen, for the open Senate seat in LD12.  LaCinda Lewis is running as a conservative against proven conservative Eddie Farnsworth and Travis Grantham for one of the House seats in LD12.

Lindblom's website cites Protecting Individual Freedoms • Limited Government • Local Control • Education Advocate • Business Friendly.  Under the heading "Media", you will see several flyers, including one titled "Our Conservative Team for the State Legislature," which includes LaCinda Lewis as his team mate.  (See below.)

Lewis touts Family - Education - Economy from a  a "unique conservative perspective."

It’s hard to fathom why voters would believe that Lindblom and Lewis are conservatives.   Conservatives abide by the Republican platform.  They work very hard to stand up for and defend those principles.  RINO’s and Democrats don’t.  Why work hard when it's easier to vote for something that sounds good.    

Lindblom and Lewis have listed many endorsements they have received from local leaders.  Gilbert Watch took a look at some of those endorsements.

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!"

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).
