The Navajo Nation Council’s Naabik’iyátí’ Committee has endorsed socialist Fred DuVal, representing the party of CONTROL for Arizona governor. This is hardly surprising, but it is sad that Native Americans continue to support the socialists who have kept them on a cycle of dependency, economic stagnation and hopelessness for decade after decade. The last thing Native Americans need is more socialist policies and more dependency on government.
Indian reservations are pockets of poverty where unemployment, social problems, and alcoholism abound. If the party of CONTROL was actually helping Native Americans we would have seen changes for the better by now. But reservation life and the problems that grip them have changed little since the 20th century.
No, Fred DuVal will not change that.
But Fred DuVal – if elected governor – will do his best impersonation of Barack Hussein Obama. That will be disastrous for men, women and children in Arizona.
It will be wonderful for Planned Parenthood and for those who benefit from Arizona’s over-spending of money it doesn’t have. We will likely see more of what happened under fellow traveler Janet Napolitano: gimmicks, smoke and mirrors and unsustainable spending and debt.
And speaking of Planned Parenthood, DuVal is already campaigning for youths to do end-runs around parental consent laws protecting under-age girls from the profit-driven abortion mills.
DuVal and Democrats talk a good education game. But public education has gone down, down, downhill because of their over-influence on K-12, public colleges and universities and the governing boards that control them.
If DuVal is elected in November, you can kiss prosperity good-bye. You will work longer into the year before you stop working for “Uncle Fred” and can begin keeping your own money to spend on your family’s needs. Fred will be fantastic for Big Government, Big out of control Government in your face.
The party of CONTROL will step all over the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Its members do whatever they think they can get away with. The socialists are taking our country and our culture down. We are not progressing as a nation, and it’s because of them.
Sadly, there are also too many Republicans who are running Left and that is to the state’s detriment.
Vote for FREEDOM.
Just heard on the radio that several school board elections have been cancelled in Arizona. That’s because there are so many uncontested elections. Which is to the detriment of Arizona and its students. There are too many leftists serving on, some entrenched on, our school boards, advocating for the same old wrong-headed policies that promote political correctness over real learning and education.
Also in the news lately: Jeff Scott of Phoenix Radio 1100 A.M. crowed about Arizona’s three large state universities all ranking in the top 30 of the latest LGBT university ratings. Speaking of PC over-riding real education and learning! That is sad.
Think of how students struggling with same-sex attraction and gender confusion would actually be helped if this was the newscast: Arizona ranks high nationally as a leading provider of counseling for those struggling with gender and sexuality issues.
From Mad World News:
Gary Weiss, formerly a volunteer coach at Catalina Foothills High School in Tucson, said he was cut from his position after school officials gave him an ultimatum: tell players to stop praying or lose his position. Choosing prayer, Weiss lost his job, according to local NBC news affiliate KVOA-TV.
“My concern is the rights of the kids to do what is their right to do,” Weiss told the outlet.
Although voluntary invocation is permitted at the school, staff members are prohibited from promoting or facilitating student’s prayer, a district administrator told the affiliate.
Weiss denies administrator’s allegations that he organized and supported prayer among the team members with his claim that no adults led the student’s invocations. Weiss added to his claim that prayers were inclusive, KVOA reported.
“The prayers of the freshmen team have been recited by Muslim kids, Jewish kids, and Christian kids,” Weiss said in an interview with the affiliate.
This is a disgusting attack on the First Amendment… remember that amendment? Freedom of speech and freedom of religion? It is unlawful for a person to be fired protecting individuals Bill of Rights. Here are some of the students tweets below.
It didn’t take long to become clear Doug Ducey had won the Republican nomination for governor. Following are some of the points he made in his victory speech, flanked by his family and Governor Jan Brewer:
Our schools must do better, without more meddling from the federal government. We will pursue commonsense education instead of Common Core education. Focus on solid teaching, local control and more input from parents so every student reaches their educational dreams
This campaign is for you if you’re for job creation.
I will reach out to all the people.
I will earn the vote by showing the best that is in Arizona
I am thankful for my faith and my family. The best thing I have going for me is my wife Angela Ducey. We couldn’t be more proud of our three sons, Jack, Joe, and Sam.
When the going gets rough it’s great to have the help of Jon Kyl, John Shadegg, Cong. Trent Franks, Bill Montgomery (Maricopa County Attorney), (former Gov.) Jane Dee Hull, Leah Marquez Peterson, (former Gov.) Fife Symington, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio. I’ve gotten a lot of advice from them.
I learned to respect the strengths of each of my opponents. I applaud their commitment, as all of us should, to public service.
I want every Republican to know we need you in this campaign.
We will make our state a more just, compassionate and welcoming place.
He said tonight is an especially great day for ice cream. Surely Fred DuVal will jump all over that.
He thanked Gov. Brewer for her leadership and wants to stand on the shoulders of her legacy.
We set out to give a great effort. To run with a full heart and press on to the finish.
I’ll work hard as your nominee and together we will win the election for governor.
It was a clean sweep for (Democrat opponent) Fred DuVal. I want to congratulate Fred on his big win. We now know that this guy is unstoppable — if he doesn’t have an opponent. (The Arizona Democrats selected DuVal more than a year ago to be their candidate without allowing any opposition in the primary.)
I’m seeking support from Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and Liberatians.
It comes down to one thing: Arizona should be a place of opportunity for all.
We will find a better way (than Obamacare) to protect the health care and freedom for people of Arizona.
We will practice spending discipline. The default position of the status quo and special interests is always to raise taxes; we’ll stand up again for the taxpayers of Arizona.
I have a very clear agenda: kickstart the economy, reform education and get out from underneath the thumb of our federal government.
Now I will make my case to all the voters of Arizona.
The next 10 weeks ahead will be filled with hard work and vigorous debate.
Every day I will state my convictions and respect those of others
I will earn the vote by showing the best of Arizona.
Thank you and God bless Arizona.
Doug Ducey has won the Arizona Republican primary race for governor. RINO Scott Smith is in second, with Christine Jones third, Ken Bennett fourth, Andy Thomas fifth and former congressman Frank Riggs sixth.
Mark Brnovich is ending scandal-ridden RINO Tom Horne’s reign as Arizona attorney general.
Diane Douglas ousted incumbent John Huppenthal for Superintendent for Public Instruction. Douglas ran on her opposition to Common Core education, which Huppenthal supported.
RINO Michele Reagan is winning the nomination for secretary of state. She will most likely lose in November to Democrat Terry Goddard.
Jeff DeWitt is heading for victory in the three-man primary race for state treasurer, with RINO Hugh Hallmann in second and former AZ GOP chairman Randy Pullen running third.
Wendy Rogers is leading Andrew Walter by about 5,000 votes in the GOP Congressional District 9 race.
Gary Kiehe is surprisingly leading in the GOP Congressional District 1 in a close race with Adam Kwasman and Andy Tobin.
Several incumbent congressmen ran unopposed.
In the Republican race for Arizona Corporation Commissioner, Tom Forese and Doug Little have secured nominations for November’s general election.
In a huge disappointment, Arizona-bashing Bob Worsley has defeated challenger Dr. Ralph Heap in the State Senate race for District 25.
Additionally, John Giles won handily over conservative Danny Ray in the election for mayor in Mesa. Giles was backed by all the current councilmen — all of whom, incidentally, were identified as “friends” and “champions” of Big Government by Americans for Tax Prosperity.
During the summer campaign, The Arizona Conservative questioned the loyalty of many Republican candidates to GOP principles. Several of those candidates won or did well tonight, raising additional questions about Republican voters, as well. Do personalities and advertising tactics weigh more heavily with Republican voters, or do they observe GOP principle as their criteria for voting decisions? The answer is in, and the GOP platform was a big loser in here in Arizona this summer. And as we said previously, it hasn’t been tried and found wanting. For many of the candidates — particularly Smith, Hallmann, Reagan, Worsley, Horne, and others — it has not been tried. Obviously, conservatives have much to do to educate Republicans in this state, which appears to be drifting away from the conservative principles that made America great.
