Volunteers ActivatingTo Protect Election Integrity in Arizona

By Wendi Mahoney

A former candidate for the Arizona House of Representatives, District 17, Liz Harris, shows citizens how to be an effective activist and get results. Starting in December, she managed to call to action over 800 bi-partisan, unpaid volunteers throughout the state with her It Smells Funny website form where she asks people to volunteer their time to help with election integrity research. “It was truly a grassroots effort,” said Harris.

During a Dec. 29 interview with HUB radio Phoenix, Harris explained how she decided to “take a look at a list of people over the age of ninety” from the state of Arizona to verify whether they voted. While her initial list was a small one, she found that about one-third of those on the list were indeed deceased. She then requested a bigger list.

Initially, she found that while there were deceased voters who had “voted,” it wasn’t a large enough number to make a difference. However, as she looked through the list, she noticed that “one out of five people didn’t exist in Arizona or the National Database couldn’t even find a record of them.” She then asked mathematician and investment advisor, Bobby Piton, to review the list. According to Harris, he found “irregularities and abnormalities in [the] voter rolls that were just stunning.” He found about 120,000 to 306,000 “fake people” on the rolls.

One of the most important findings was that “from 1998 until today, Arizona’s population has grown by approximately 44%, yet the voter rolls increased by 200%.” Harris and her volunteers went door-to-door looking at all the people who had “suspect names, addresses that are suspect… a laundry list of irregularities” sourced from the random sample that Bobby Piton pulled together for the volunteers to use in their efforts. He estimated he found “between 160,000 to 460,000 illegal ballots.”

Among other things, Piton’s findings report that the volunteers knocked on over 1400 doors and “touched” about 700 people. Harris then collected, indexed, and notarized all the affidavits and put them in huge binders.

Harris conducted forty-minute training meetings every day at 7:00, 11:00, and 7:00 via Zoom, setting each volunteer up with an app that targeted households to canvass. She is careful to emphasize that the people whose homes they knocked on did nothing wrong. It is a “systematic issue,” she explained.

The respondents were given a declaration to fill out—or a neighbor completes it if the house is abandoned. The affidavits are sent to volunteers at the end of the day and then filed and indexed. As of the end of December, she and her volunteers had collected “well over 1500 affidavits.” She explained that there were more than 1400 doors because some of the affidavits came from places like apartment complexes where a leasing manager confirmed names of people who had never lived there.

Colleges and Universities were also able to confirm those who “had never attended the school.” For example, at Grand Canyon University, the volunteers found many 80 and 90- year-olds who were registered to vote there but, in fact, were not in attendance.

They found that voting out of P.O. Boxes and commercial addresses was a “rampant problem” there. Other places canvassed were; “vacant lots, hotels, county buildings, apartment complexes with no corresponding apartment number, abandoned properties, non-existent addresses, homes for elderly, churches, sports arenas, homeless shelters, native American reservations with addresses that were listed as “dummy 1,2,3.” Homeless shelters and churches can be valid addresses for registered voters but not in the numbers found.

The categories denoted were; “fabricated address, not at this address, deceased, out of state voter, non-U.S. citizens, convicted felons, double voters”—to name just a few.

Election Integrity Fight in Arizona

The Arizona State Senate has been fighting for weeks to get the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to turn over voting machines and ballots from the November election. The Senate issued subpoenas, all of which were ignored. Arizona voters have jammed the phone lines demanding a forensic audit because many believe the election was stolen. Arizona State Senate President and Arizona Republican Party Chair, Kelli Ward, have been fighting for a fair, objective forensic audit of the vote. On Monday, Republicans who control the Senate fell one vote short of holding in contempt the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for failing to surrender the ballots and machines. Republican Sen. Paul Boyer broke ranks and voted with the Democrats.

In her interview with Steve Bannon on Feb. 4, Harris lays out what she thinks should happen next.

  • Gain access to the original 2.1 million ballots that are currently locked up, including but not limited to early ballots, election day ballots, and provisional ballots.
  • Deep dive into election log files, election settings, accounts and tokens, windows servers and desktops, Dominion Voting Systems Equipment, Dominion Network, access to logins for the Dominion records, election systems and software, and all voter rolls.

Harris says that Arizona is the perfect place to look at ballots because it is one of the few that still has intact ballots. She says this is not a partisan issue. “Let’s get to the bottom of how voter fraud actually works from A-Z…The Arizona State Senate needs to be united.” Everyone needs to jump on board and agree to a deep dive. “We have to be united and say election integrity is important…there is no voter suppression here. We want every vote to count, and we want to make sure there are no shenanigans.”

Herrod: Foundational Principles Won the Day in National Elections

By Cathi Herrod, President
Center for Arizona Policy

On Tuesday the people spoke. In election after election, the American people voted in favor of foundational principles – the values we hold dear. While our ultimate hope only is in the Lord, may your hope in the electoral process and the values of the American people be restored.

Check out these election results from Tuesday:

HOUSTON: Remember the Houston 5? The five pastors who had their sermons subpoenaed when they voiced opposition to Houston’s so-called “Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO)?” The voters in Houston stood with those pastors in voting down the ordinance 61% to 39%. The ordinance would have amended city law to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Throughout the country, it’s these ordinances that are being used to deny religious freedom to people like Washington state florist Barronelle Stutzman, or Colorado cake baker Jack Phillips. It’s also these ordinances that allow men who want to identify as women to use female locker room and bathroom facilities.

The Houston voters sent a clear message that the people support religious freedom and don’t want men in women’s restrooms.

Today, in our state, the cities of Glendale, Scottsdale, and Mesa are considering similar ordinances. Proponents of these laws are also pushing for a similar statewide measure. Let’s hope the Houston vote sends a clear message to Arizona leaders that when the people speak, this is the result.

OHIO: The Ohio people spoke loud and clear in defeating 64-36% a $20 million dollar effort to legalize recreational marijuana across the state. Next year, Arizonans most likely will vote on a similar measure to legalize retail marijuana here. Citizens are watching Colorado and seeing the devastating effects of what happens when retail marijuana is legal.

KENTUCKY: The people spoke in Kentucky by electing Matt Bevin Governor. Bevin united fiscal and social conservatives with his stands against Obamacare and in favor of life and religious freedom. Bevin’s opponent was endorsed by Planned Parenthood.

GLENDALE: Voters spoke in on our state in Glendale by recalling current Councilman Gary Sherwood, electing in his place Ray Malnar. Sherwood had flip-flopped his position on the Glendale Casino (from opposing the casino to supporting it). He has also been the leader of the Glendale effort to add a sexual orientation and gender identity non-discrimination ordinance – the same ordinance defeated by Houston voters.

Take time to read Ryan Anderson’s take on what the election results say about social conservatives. Or for an interesting perspective from a left-leaning publication, read the Atlantic: Are Liberals Losing the Culture War?

Be encouraged. Reclaim hope. Be grateful for pastors that led. Be grateful for voters who clearly stood in defense of foundational principles and values.

May the 2015 election results forecast the people speaking loud and clear in the 2016 election cycle!

Governor-Elect Ducey will have a Republican Legislature to Work with


Republicans will maintain control of the Arizona Legislature. Republicans are on their way to victory in 16 state Senate races, the party of CONTROL* has won 13 seats. The only issue in doubt is in District 6.

Former lawmakers Sylvia Allen (Republican) and Thomas O’Halleran (Independent) are locked in a very close race. With just over half the precincts reporting, O’Halleran leads by about 600 votes. Allen got into the race very late when the conservative incumbent, Chester Crandall, died in a horseback riding accident near Heber just days before the August primary. The late Crandall won unopposed, but Allen was able to replace him on the GOP ticket.

If Allen wins the seat, the GOP will have a 17-13 Senate majority. If O’Halleran wins the seat, the GOP will hold 16 seats, the party of CONTROL 13 and there would be one Independent seat.

Republicans are claiming 37 Arizona House of Representative seats, CONTROL 23 seats.

So Governor-elect Ducey will have a Republican majority to work with for the first two years of his first term.


Doug Ducey appears on his way to becoming Arizona’s next governor. Fellow Republicans are leading Democrats in all of the other statewide office elections with 1,103 of 1,566 precincts reporting in these state office contests.

Ducey, former state treasurer, leads Comrade Fred DuVal of the party of CONTROL 53-41 percent. The good news is that Arizona will avoid the record spending binges and budget deficits that DuVal would have accrued had he been elected. It would have been a repeat of the Napolitano years when the former governor spent money far faster that the state could generate revenues. But under Governor Ducey, fiscal sanity is a certainty.

We also believe — and certainly hope — Ducey’s administration will be friendly to life, liberty and family. He gave every intention to the Center for Arizona Policy that this would be the case, and we urge him to hold true.

In the race for attorney general, GOP Mark Brnovich has a lead of 66,000 votes over CONTROL candidate Felicia Rotellini, 53.4 percent to 46.6 percent.

Secretary of state race is a little closer. Liberal Republican Michele Reagan has 52 percent of the vote, surprising frequent CONTROL candidate and former attorney general, Terry Goddard, 48 percent.

Closer still is the race between Republican Diane Douglas and CONTROL’s David Garcia. Douglas leads by about 1,500 votes, with 50.87 percent of the vote to Garcia’s 49.08. Douglas wants to get rid of the Big Socialism education curriculum, Common Core. Garcia would be a disaster for Arizona’s children.

Jeff DeWit, another Republican, is running unopposed for state treasurer.

The party of CONTROL refused to allow its members to select candidates for governor or attorney general. No one other than Comrade DuVal, who wants to move Arizona forward communist style, or Rottelini, were allowed to compete for those nominations in the August primary election.


Conservative Congressmen Matt Salmon, Trent Franks, Paul Gosar and David Schweikert are all sailing to victory.

Salmon said: “Tonight’s election results make one thing exceedingly clear: Arizonans want their elected officials to get government out of the way and support policies that will let the private sector thrive and create jobs.”

CONTROL incumbents Kyrsten Sinema, Ron Barber, and Raul Grijalva are all on their way to re-election as well.

Ann Kirkpatrick, another CONTROL incumbent, is pulling away from Andy Tobin in a congressional race, and now leads by 5 percentage points with 177 of 327 precincts in.

Ruben Gallego (CONTROL) has sewn up election in the congressional seat held for many years by the retired Ed Pastor.

The top vote-getters, in order, for Arizona Corporation Commission are Republicans Doug Little and Tom Forese and then CONTROL’s Sandra Kennedy a distant third.


Among judges up for retention, Scott Bales is winning handily. He was appointed by former Gov. Janet Napolitano (CONTROL).


Prop 122, which will stem out of control federal government interference with Arizona, is barely ahead, by just one percent.

The Right to Try prop, 303, is winning big.

And as it has done numerous times, the attempt to raise state legislator pay (Prop 304) is losing bigtime.

In Phoenix, the unfunded/pension spiking madness is likely to continue. Prop 487 is up 55 to 45 percent.


All in all, it’s a good night for America and Arizona (on the 11th anniversary of The Arizona Conservative, No. 1 cultural commentator in the state). Though politics is downstream from culture, tonight’s results are a good sign that people have had enough of Big Government Socialism, the Obama Administration, and the do-nothing U.S. Senate under Harry Reid’s abdication of responsibility and leadership. This is also a great day for the sanctity of life, for families, and especially for free speech and religious liberty.

We remember the wisdom of President Reagan, one of the five truly great presidents in this nation, who said during his first inaugural address:

“We are a nation that has a government—not the other way around. And this makes us special among the nations of the Earth. Our government has no power except that granted it by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed.”

Thank you for coming here to consult our election recommendations and coverage.

May God bless America.

Black Day in Arizona: One Judge Throws out 1.2 Million Votes for Marriage



The out of control, tyrannical, activist courts are … out of control, tyrannical and activist again!

Voters, you’ve been had!

U.S. District Court Judge John Sedwick has thrown out all the 2008 votes that enacted a state constitutional marriage amendment recognizing marriage as the union of one man and one woman. He ruled that a recent decision by the Ninth Circus appeals court to redefine marriage applies to Arizona.

This is un-American. Arizonans should be outraged!

There is no place in a court of law for activists like Judge Sedwick or any of the other judicial activists who have been destroying marriage in recent months by overturning the will of millions of Americans who defined marriage in fair and honest elections. These judges need to be impeached or voted out.

What will follow is blatant fascism by homosexual activists and their friends in the political party they’ve captured – the Democratic Party. Christians and non-Christians alike who define marriage as one man and one woman will be punished merely for disagreeing with same-sex “marriage” and special rights for people struggling with same-sex attraction and gender confusion.

We are already seeing this all across the country. And this is why the Arizona Legislature passed 1062 earlier this year to strengthen protections for Arizonans who don’t want to be forced to endorse behavior they disapprove of. Of course, we remember that homosexual pressure groups, along with their cowardly media friends running cover for them, intimidated the bejabbers out of Governor Jan Brewer and stampeded her into vetoing the bill.

With the latest activist antics in Judge Sedwick’s court, we can now expect people to lose their jobs over refusal to perform same-sex weddings. Photographers, florists, bakers, and others involved in wedding venues can now be severely punished and harassed by left-wing local and state office holders for not agreeing to endorse the message of same-sex marriage. It’s happened from the Atlantic coast to Hawaii. Why wouldn’t it happen here?

A run-away, out of control government will come down with all of its weight and fury on honest people following their consciences. Some will be fined and burdened by unconstitutional demands. Others will be forced out of business. They will receive hate mail, hateful phone calls, and threats. It will be a feeding frenzy for those on the radical Left.

You see, same-sex “marriage” and religious freedom cannot co-exist. Non-discrimination laws and radical left-wing dogma will over-rule the free exercise of religion guaranteed by the Founding Fathers who wrote the First Amendment. The Bill of Rights means absolutely nothing to the Left.

This is a sad day in Arizona. A black day.

In November of 2008, a total of 1,258,355 Arizonans voted to enact marriage as one man and one woman in the state Constitution. A single man, a man with incredible hubris, threw that out. This is the America we live in today. It is not the America of James Madison and the Founders who penned the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Not by a long shot.

We are not alone. This is happening all over America. Tens of millions of voters have been disenfranchised.

And this is the cost of allowing the party of CONTROL, the Democrats, to pack the courts with Constitution-challenged activist judges.

All that’s left is for radical scavengers to clean up the scraps – demonizing anyone who disagrees. Take our word: persecution is coming, fascism will warp into high gear among Arizona’s hardcore leftists. You disagree with the homosexual agenda? Okay, consider yourself a target for the fascists.

A final word to Judge Sedwick and the other activists who have co-opted the courts and disenfranchised the people: when you come to a gate in the road, before removing it take time to consider why it was put there in the first place.

It is crucial you update church policy on rental of church facilities to protect yourselves from litigation when someone asks you to officiate over a same-sex “wedding” or to rent church property for a same-sex “marriage.” Consult an attorney with expertise in religious freedom law. Don’t wait. Do it now!


If you are asked to provide a service or a product for a same-sex “wedding,” and you are opposed to doing so on religious grounds, do not respond to the homosexuals’ request until first consulting an attorney. This will help you avoid a legal entanglement that could land you in hot water or potentially force you to go out of business. Don’t wait. Do it now!

Society’s Marital Benefits

Among the most important purposes of civil government are to restrain evil, bring good to society, and bring order to society. On all three grounds, it is right to conclude that government should define and regulate marriage.

Marriage restrains evil by promoting sexual faithfulness between a man and a woman, by establishing a legally binding commitment for parents to care for their children, by establishing a legally binding commitment for spouses to be financially responsible for and to care for one another, and by providing a legal protection to keep women from being exploited by men who might otherwise enjoy a sexual relationship for a time and then abandon a woman and any children she may have borne.

Second, marriage brings good to society in multiple ways. It promotes social stability, economic well-being, educational, and economic benefits for children, the transmission of moral and cultural values to the next generation, and a stable social unit for interactions within society.

Third, the establishment of marriage brings order to society to the general public will know who is married and who is not. Marital status can be established as a matter of public record so that in various ways the society as a whole can honor and protect individual marriages and can know who is responsible for the care and protection and training of children, and for the care of spouses who have medical, financial or other needs. In this way, defining and regulating marriage gives stability and order to a society. It is an extremely important social good that government should encourage and protect.

Only civil government can define a standard of what constitutes a marriage for the state, nation, or whole society.

If no definition of marriage is given to an entire society, then chaos and much oppression of women and children will ensue. Without government establishment of what constitutes marriage, the result is a proliferation of children born in temporary relationships without commitment, and more children born with no one taking responsibility for their general well-being and welfare.

The worldwide consensus throughout history is that society as a whole, through its governing authorities, needs to define and regulate marriage for its citizens. The greatest cost benefit to government and society is when children are protected by a permanent, faithful, co-residential, sexual coupling of a committed, married man and woman.

Since marriage provides great benefits to society with immense value, society has an interest in protecting and encouraging marriage.  The Supreme Court has frequently confirmed this, declaring in 1885 “the idea of the family, as consisting in and springing from the union for life of one man and one woman” is “the sure foundation of all that is stable and noble in our civilization.”

The history of marriage law in the U.S. shows that society has a strong interest in protecting and encouraging marriage between one man and one woman because of the great benefits that accrue from this institution – in multiple ways, benefits that no other relationship or institution can give.

Comparing the environment marriage provides during the pregnancy and birth of a baby with the environment of a cohabiting couple with no legal commitment attached, or to the environment provided by a temporary sexual liaison with no ongoing relationship, or to the environment provided by a homosexual couple that lacks either a mother or a father, or to the environment provided by a single mother who bears a child through in vitro fertilization or surrogate motherhood, it is evident the environment provided by the married heterosexual couple provides far more security for the child.

The environment is also better for the mother because marriage provides a better guarantee that the father will not abandon her to care for the child alone – including at cost to the taxpayers through government welfare programs. The environment of marriage is also better for the father because it provides strong legal and societal expectation that he will stay around and act responsibly with regard to the responsibilities formally associated with fatherhood.

All societies need babies to survive and thrive, and marriage between one man and one woman is the best environment for the birth, care, and raising of children. Children living with their own married parents attain significantly higher educational achievement. They are much more likely to enjoy a better economic standard in their adult lives and are much less likely to end up in poverty. Their physical and emotional health is better. They commit fewer crimes and experience less drug and alcohol abuse. They’ve demonstrated higher standards of integrity and moral principles.

Furthermore, children living with their own parents are less likely to experience physical abuse and are more likely to live in homes providing support, protection, and stability for them. They, in turn, are more likely to establish stable families in the next generation – requiring fewer government resources. Marital fidelity is highest among a married man and woman, resulting in the fewest STDs of any types of relational coupling. In addition, the highest rates of domestic abuse in society are among homosexuals – particularly females.

All of these factors are demonstrable through scholarly, peer-reviewed data – much of it provided by university researchers who describe their political leanings as Left.

And for all the reasons outlined above, marriage between one man and one woman is the basic building block of a stable society. It’s essential to the continuation of a healthy, stable society. It is highly beneficial for government to encourage and reward marriage between one man and one woman – through laws and policies. Policies and laws to the contrary do harm to the nation.

Homosexuals, as a whole, cannot provide the same benefits to children or society. Male homosexuals can expect a life expectancy shorted by 25-30 years. They are at a heightened risk of chronic, potentially fatal, liver disease (infectious hepatitis), fatal immune diseases including cancer, fatal rectal cancer, multiple bowel and other infectious diseases, higher rates of suicide, more drug and alcohol abuse, and adverse consequences due to risky behavior – most notably, frequent sex with hundreds, if not thousands, of anonymous sex partners.

Media in America typically represent homosexual couples as “normal” parents. But that is not an accurate portrayal of social realities. Nor is it an honest attempt at journalism, for the result is to delude society with false information. Media refuse to acknowledge that science has proved indisputably that homosexuality is not genetic, and fail to recognize the many social problems associated with homosexual relationships. The main reasons for dishonest, skewed, and false reporting by media is its collective liberal worldview, and its fear of protest by homosexual advocacy groups.

Furthermore, heterosexual marriage lasts many times longer than homosexual relationships (about 18 months. And when hetero marriages pass the 10-year mark, the divorce rate drops precipitously.


Postscript: Homosexual activists are attempting to place an initiative on the general election ballot in November of 2014 to overturn Arizona’s constitutional protection of marriage between one man and one woman. If they succeed in changing the law, everyone in Arizona loses. Additionally, the result of same-sex “marriage” means a loss constitutional freedom for Americans; same-sex “marriage” will over-rule the First Amendment’s recognition of free speech and religious freedom because to oppose same-sex “marriage” will result in punishment, job loss and marginalization for those opposed. For so many reasons, the best outcome for Arizona society is to defeat this effort.

Arizona, Protect Our Marriage Culture from Radical Activists

Arizonans believe in a strong marriage culture. That’s why we protect it in our law and our state Constitution.

But now radical leftists want to destroy the institutions of marriage and family. They want to redefine it so it means essentially nothing. The people have already spoken on this issue. In 2008 we enacted a state constitutional marriage amendment to protect our state from activist judges beholden to radical special interest groups.

Don’t be fooled by a new effort to harm our marriage culture. Typical of the Left and its Democrat partisans, a group is using a seemingly harmless name in an effort to legalize marriage for Arizona homosexuals – who make up one percent of the state’s population. They’re calling themselves “Why Marriage Matters.” Their phrase is correct, but their intentions will have disastrous unintended consequences.

There is no groundswell for the change they are demanding. The children of Arizona are not crying out to be fatherless or motherless. Every boy and girl deserves both, and needs both, a father and a mother. But Why Marriage Matters would deny children of one of their biological parents.

In states with same-sex “marriage,” religious freedom is disappearing. It’s actually disappearing in states like New Mexico, where same-sex “marriage” is not legal, as well.

Furthermore, redefining marriage is not the end game for homosexual activists. Their real goal is to overthrow the concepts of marriage and family entirely. This would have dire ramifications for America … for Arizona. It will also lead to polygamy; in fact a Utah judge just struck down a state law banning polygamy.

Sadly, those who think they will benefit from same-sex “marriage” will not realize that vision. People in same-sex relationships suffer from much higher rates of domestic abuse than married heterosexual relationships. Rates of domestic abuse among female homosexuals are even higher than among male homosexuals. Their life spans are shorter, they are more likely to engage in drug and alcohol abuse. And the lack of infidelity among homosexuals leads to rampant anonymous sex and the accompanying health-threatening diseases.

The children of same-sex parents do more poorly in school, suffer more emotional problems, are at a greater risk of sexual abuse, and are less likely to marry someone of the opposite gender. As two of the leading homosexual activists in America confessed, homosexuality is a dismal existence:

Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen Ph.D., authors of “After the Ball: How America will Conquer its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90’s”(1989), conclude the male homosexual lifestyle “is the pits.”

Furthermore, it is important to recognize the common spin lines used by homosexual activists:

“I was born this way.”

Truth: Biomolecular scientists concluded 20 years ago that homosexuality is not genetic. No one is born that way.

Jesus never said anything about homosexuality.

Truth: Jesus and God are one and the same, the Bible is the inspired Word of the Triune God. Jesus says homosexuality is a sin.*

“How does my same-sex relationship affect your marriage?”

Truth: I did not consent to sign my marriage license as Party A. My wife did not consent to sign our marriage license as Party B. I do not want my children and grandchildren to grow up believing their gender is meaningless. Homosexuality has a detrimental impact on communities, the work place (more absenteeism due to health problems and drug and alcohol abuse), and the people jumping in and out of same-sex relationships. Already people have lost their jobs simply for supporting marriage as a one-man/one-woman marriage. People have lost the right to live by their own religious beliefs – without being punished, fined, or fired from their jobs. The First Amendment to the Constitution is being supplanted by homosexual activists and activist judges. Marriage supporters have received death threats and had their homes, belongings, and churches vandalized.

Left-wingers such as Grant Woods are backing this group. So is a Lutheran pastor, who mistakenly claims that scripture supports same-sex “marriage.” He could not be more wrong.

This is your wake-up call, Arizona. If these leftists succeed in qualifying their proposition for the November 2014 ballot, you will have to go to your polling place and vote it down. Let’s not allow our state to become another Massachusetts or Iowa, where radical special interests pressured for and got same-sex “marriage.”

Protect our marriage culture now. Tell your family and friends about this threat. Gain their assurance of protecting marriage – the union of one man and one woman – in Arizona.

The best thing for homosexuals, many of whom have undergone conversion therapy, is to not allow homosexual pressure groups to deceive them into following the false narrative that they were “born that way,” if lawmakers and judges fabricate special rights for them, and if they donate lots of money to them, they will be happy.

*We have all fallen short of the glory of God. We are all sinners, though the left-stream media is glorifying homosexuals as a “special class.”

FLASHBACK! ‘I Have no Dog in the Fight’ and Other Arizona Media Myths

As we celebrate 10 years of The Arizona Conservative, here’s one of the more memorable reports on appalling and outrageous behavior by the left-stream media:

I Have No Dog in the Fight’ and other Arizona Media Myths

July 6, 2006

No one in the Arizona media better epitomizes liberal bias than Howard Fischer of Capitol Media Services. It is unclear whether Fischer obtained his journalism degree from a box of Crackerjax or from the “Acme School of Pseudo-Journalism.”

What was apparent once again today were his bias and unquestioned disdain for all things conservative relating to respect for life/marriage/family. The boorish Fischer behaved atrociously, not to mention unprofessionally, in the events surrounding Protect Marriage Arizona’s submission of ballot initiative signatures at the Secretary of State’s Office in Phoenix.

Fischer is an agenda-driven “journalist” who has made a disreputable career of starting off his so-called “straight news stories” by ripping conservative ideas and legislative bills. Today, he teed off on an initiative designed to prevent judicial activists from circumventing the democratic process and changing the definition of marriage to include homosexual and polygamous “marriages.”

As members of the Protect Marriage Arizona coalition waited for colleagues to arrive at the state capital with the signatures of 307,576 eligible voters who want to protect current marriage laws with an amendment to the state constitution, Fischer could barely contain himself. He asked gleefully if the petitions had been lost or possibly delivered to the wrong location.

A person knowing of Fischer’s biases responded, “You wish …” To which, Fischer said, “I have no dog in the fight,” and then he walked away.

Minutes later, the coalition forces had transported several boxes of petitions up seven floors to Secretary of State Jan Brewer’s office, as a large media entourage watched. The boxes had barely been placed on the office floor when Fischer, salivating for the taste of conservative flesh, led the charge. Leo Gozdich, president of The National Association of Marriage Enhancement, answered a media question, and then Fischer and the media “pack dogs” surrounded  him and verbally tore into him. Gozdich explained the benefits and value of marriage to society, all of which was lost on the intellectually challenged, emotionally-driven media.

Fischer was front and center harassing Gozdich. “Why do you not want civil unions,” Fischer angrily asked Gozdich.

Gozdich said, “We are protecting traditional marriage.”

“Who’s tradition!” shouted an alleged “reporter,” obviously emboldened by the alpha “reporter’s” aggression.

As the rancor grew between the attack dogs and Gozdich, Nathan Sproul cut in. “The story today,” said the campaign consultant for PMA, “is that we have submitted over 300,000 signatures. This speaks to the grassroots movement to protect marriage in Arizona.”

When Bob McClay, reporter for KTAR Radio (Phoenix) asked Sproul his name, Fischer bared his “fangs” and shot in, “He’s paid.” As if Sproul would not want to protect marriage if not paid for his services.

“Our singular intent is to preserve marriage,” Sproul said, unfazed. Sproul said the idea behind Protect Marriage Arizona is to put the issue of heterosexual marriage on the election ballot and let the people decide.

“Isn’t that pretty elitist?” Fischer asked snottily.

“It used to be that blacks and whites couldn’t marry either.”

Gozdich, himself a former Columbia University journalism student, had seen enough. “We live in a democracy … you’re engaging in debate, not in journalism,” he told an over-the-edge Fischer.

Another alleged “reporter” – not wearing any badge and who could have been a homosexual activist posing as a reporter – wedged his way to the front and fired another hard-edged and loaded question across the bow of the PMA leaders. Sproul calmly said, “We are 100 percent confident we will be able to defend the legal challenge in Superior Court and in the Arizona Supreme Court.” Sproul, too, had had enough by now and he declared the press conference over.

He and the coalition members then departed via the elevator.

“Why are you cutting off the press conference?” shouted Fischer, anxious for more verbal sparring.

On his way to the elevator, Gozdich said that the New York Supreme Court had just yesterday delivered a ruling in defense of traditional marriage. Not that any of this would matter to intellectually starved media reps in attendance plying leftist theology.

Fischer continued ranting and raving as the ravenous pack waited for its own elevator. “They should answer our questions! They cut off the press conference!” The media “groupthink swarm” then moved as one unit into the elevator and headed down to the first floor. Fischer, spoiling for a fight, rambled on barely coherent: “Sproul’s been investigated before. In Nevada, he was destroying Democrat registrations … they cut off the press conference … I love Nathan saying ‘we’re off the record here’ …. And Nathan saying ‘we weren’t prepared for a press conference.’”

Another “reporter” in the elevator — Dennis Welch of the East Valley Tribune, said, “we’re the media scum.” The temptation is strong to make a statement about truth in advertising, but no additional comment will be added here.

At last, the elevator reaches the ground floor, the door opens and “alpha dog” Fischer lunges out looking for and finding a likely victim — Secretary of State Jan Brewer, waiting for an upward bound elevator. “Have you ever had a relationship with a homosexual,” Fischer asked. Brewer laughed him off and walked on.  I

t was obvious that the homosexual activists who oppose PMA did not need to be there today. The media did their dirty work for them.

The one bright spot of the morning came minutes later in the Wesley Bolin Plaza parking lot, where McClay conducted a fair, civil, and unbiased one-on-one interview with Gozdich.

Imagine that, a real interview conducted with professional deportment, rather than a debate from a reporter. There is hope for the Arizona media after all.

Dozens of Christian Leaders will not Cross that Line if Marriage Re-defined

This coming week is the week the U.S. Supreme Court will review two crucial decision on marriage. Hopefully the High Court will beat back attacks on the federal Defense of Marriage Act and restore the vote of 7 million California voters upholding the Proposition 8 marriage amendment — only to have one biased, homosexual judge over-ride their votes. Dozens of Christian leaders have signed the following letter to demonstrate that even if the Court foolishly redefines marriage against the majority of Americans who believe marriage is the union of one man one woman they will not cross that line. Read their letter below:

We stand together as Christians in defense of marriage and the family and society founded upon them. While we come from a variety of communities and hold differing faith perspectives, we are united in our common faith in Jesus Christ.

We acknowledge that differences exist between us on important matters of religious doctrine and practice. But, on the matter of marriage, we stand in solidarity. As a nation, we have lost our moral compass. As a result, we are losing true freedom. We affirm together that there is a moral basis to a free society. Though we live in a secular society, together we reject relativism and secularism.

We affirm that marriage and family have been inscribed by the Divine Architect into the order of creation. Marriage is ontologically between one man and one woman, ordered toward the union of the spouses, open to children and formative of family. Family is the first vital cell of society; the first church, first school, first hospital, first economy, first government and first mediating institution of our social order. The future of a free and healthy society passes through marriage and the family.

Marriage as existing solely between one man and one woman was not an idea manufactured by the Christian Church. It precedes Christianity. Though affirmed, fulfilled, and elevated by Christian teaching, the truth that marriage can exist only between one man and one woman is not based on religion or revelation alone, but on the Natural Moral Law, written on the human heart and discernible through the exercise of reason.

This claim of the existence of such a Natural Moral Law is the ground upon which every great civilization has been built. It is the source of every authentic human and civil rights movement. This Natural Moral Law gives us the norms we need to build truly human and humane societies and govern ourselves. It should also inform our positive law or we will become lawless and devolve into anarchy.

Marriage is the preeminent and the most fundamental of all human social institutions. Civil institutions do not create marriage nor can they manufacture a right to marry for those who are incapable of marriage. In the words of the first book of the Bible, we read: “it is not good for man to be alone.” (Genesis 2:18) Society begins with marriage and the family.

Like many other concerned Americans, we await the opinion of the Supreme Court of the United States on two cases which open up the possibility that the 0institution of marriage will be further undermined by a judicial opinion. We pledge to stand together to defend marriage as what it is, a bond between one man and one woman, intended for life, and open to the gift of children.

The institutions of civil government should defend marriage and not seek to undermine it. Government has long regulated marriage for the true common good. Examples, such as the age of consent, demonstrate such a proper regulation to ensure the free and voluntary basis of the marriage bond. Redefining the very institution of marriage is improper and outside the authority of the State. The Supreme Court has no authority to redefine marriage.

If the Supreme Court becomes the tool by which marriage is redefined in the positive law of this nation, the precedent established will leave no room for any limitation on what can constitute such a redefined notion of marriage. Conferring a moral and legal equivalency to same-sex couples by legislative or judicial fiat also sends the message that children do not need a mother and a father. It undermines their fundamental rights and threatens their security, stability, and future.

As Christian citizens united together, we will not stand by while the destruction of the institution of marriage unfolds in this nation we love. The Sacred Scriptures and unbroken teaching of the Church confirm that marriage is between one man and one woman. We stand together in solidarity to defend marriage and the family and society founded upon them. The effort to redefine marriage threatens the proper mediating role of the Church in society.

Experience and history have shown us that if the government redefines marriage to grant a legal equivalency to same-sex couples, that same government will then enforce such an action with the police power of the State. This will bring about an inevitable collision with religious freedom and conscience rights. We cannot and will not allow this to occur on our watch. Religious freedom is the first freedom in the American experiment for good reason.

Finally, the Supreme Court has no authority to redefine marriage and thereby weaken both the family and society. Unlike the Legislative Branch that has the power of the purse and the Executive Branch which has the figurative power of the sword, the Judicial Branch has neither. It must depend upon the Executive Branch for the enforcement of its decisions.

As the Supreme Court acknowledged in the 1992 decision of Planned Parenthood v. Casey, its power rests solely upon the legitimacy of its decisions in the eyes of the people. If the Supreme Court were to issue a decision that redefined marriage or provided a precedent on which to build
an argument to redefine marriage, the Supreme Court will thereby undermine its legitimacy. The Court will significantly decrease its credibility and impair the role it has assumed for itself as a moral authority. It will be acting beyond its proper constitutional role and contrary to the Natural Moral Law which transcends religions, culture, and time.

As Christians united together in defense of marriage, we pray that this will not happen. But, make no mistake about our resolve. While there are many things we can endure, redefining marriage is so fundamental to the natural order and the true common good that this is the line we must draw and one we cannot and will not cross.

Join the Rallies against Medicaid Expansion Saturday!

The Kick-Off Rally for United Republican Alliance of Principled Conservatives is scheduled at 10 am., Saturday, June 22 on the State Capitol Lawn, 1700 W. Washington, in Phoenix. The rally will open the campaign to get enough signatures to place a referendum on the November ballot to stop Medicaid expansion. At 1 p.m., supporters of the effort will rally at two separate locations for the purpose of canvassing the districts containing the senator and representatives who supported Gov Jan Brewer’s Medicaid Expansion. They will regroup at:

LD 18 Canvass – (McComish – Dial – Robson) Join Frank Antenori and Christine Bauserman at: McDonald’s, 4750 E Warner Rd, NW corner Warner/48th St) Phoenix. 85044

LD15 Canvass (Heather Carter) – Join Ron Gould at the Deer Valley Airport, 702 W. Deer Valley Road, Phoenix, 85027

Restoring Arizona Spokesman Insults ObamaCare Opponents as ‘Fringe Group’

A spokesman for Restoring Arizona, a group supporting the recently enacted and abortion-tainted Medicaid expansion/ObamaCare, has insulted opponents by labeling them a “fringe group.” The statement below was issued in an email today from Jaime Molera, a former appointed State Superintendent of Public Instruction:

“It is clear that the Arizona Constitution prohibits referral of laws that are ‘for the support and maintenance of the departments of the state government and state institutions.’ Consequently, the opponents of Medicaid expansion cannot invalidate (or stall) the appropriation of state funds covering expanded AHCCCS coverage.

“These fringe groups who have opposed this restoration effort from the start willfully intend to ignore the will of the Arizona voters who have twice voted to support Medicaid coverage for childless adults who earn less than 100% of the Federal Poverty level.”

The ink on Governor Brewer’s signature has barely dried. Yet Molera and Medicaid expansion/ObamaCare supporters are already paranoid about a citizen effort to roll back the big government plan through a ballot proposition.

When Gov. Brewer needed the vote of Arizona citizens to get re-elected, these people were good enough then. But now, for opposing Medicaid expansion/ObamaCare, they are rudely discounted as a “fringe group.”

This is a highly inflammatory and extremely poor choice of words. Sour grapes are usually reserved for sore losers. But in this case, those who won a political battle are guilty of sour grapes.

Two former duly elected state legislators — Ron Gould and Frank Antenori — are spearheading the ballot proposition amendment process. They already have written commitments of support from 500 Republican precinct committeemen to get the ballot proposal signatures needed to qualify for the election ballot. These are the same people who worked at the grassroots level for Brewer’s re-election — only to be insulted for opposing her now. The governor herself has openly ridiculed and mocked these hard-working people who work the neighborhoods in extreme heat to get people like her elected. It’s a good thing for her she’s a lame duck, because she just killed any chance she has to get elected to any office in Arizona in the future.

We urge you and as many of your family and friends as possible to sign the petitions and help circulate them throughout Arizona. Join in this effort now.

Gould and Antenori have formed a committee to make that happen. It’s called The United Republican Alliance of Principled Conservatives. For more information on how to help this alliance, call Christine Bauserman at (520) 235-2234. Thank you.

And be sure to let the governor and Molera know their sour grapes comments are highly inflammatory and insulting. Molera’s phone number is: (602) 279-9925. Hello, Jaime … about those disgusting, ill-tempered, and regrettable remarks …
