Mrs. Bill Clinton: ‘We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good’

Now that Mrs. Bill Clinton has wrapped up the Democrat Party nomination for the presidential election, it’s time to examine her past and who she really is:

As U.S. Senator from New York, Mrs. Bill Clinton’s chief accomplishment was winning a debate against her Republican election opponent.

As secretary of state, she intentionally lied when she insisted America’s consulate in Benghazi was attacked because of a Youtube video that was critical of Islam.

Mrs. Clinton is currently under investigation for using a private server to store classified government documents.

Also, Clinton is a member of the “National Organization for Women Who Approve of Elected Male Officials Who Have Abused Women but Support Abortion Rights.”

Clinton supports Planned Parenthood, which is on defense in several courts for refusing to protect under-age girls from rapists, under investigation for defrauding the government of millions of dollars and under investigation for illegally selling baby body parts. She says abortion should be safe, legal and rare.

She said the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in favor of Hobby Lobby’s religious freedom is a slippery slope for women – even though the nation has no history of forcing employers to violate their consciences and provide abortion drugs.

Fought in 1993 for the U.S. to fast-track government approval of RU-486, a dangerous drug which has killed several women and girls and caused complications for many more.

She supported the grisly, barbaric practice of partial-birth infanticide.

She supposedly supports women’s rights, but paid her women staffers at the Department of State less than men.

She is a big fan of the late Saul Alinsky and practices his Rules for Radicals – the book he dedicated to Lucifer — in all of her political activities. He invited her to work for him as a community agitator. Clinton says she believes in tactics over principles.

As First Lady, Mrs. Clinton attempted – in secret meetings — to force socialism and government medical insurance on the nation, but failed.

She made up lies to try to justify the firing of White House Travel Bureau employees, allegations which were proven false.

She said the unborn have no rights.

Mrs. Clinton enabled her husband’s rampant womanizing by trashing the women who were used and abused by himd – rather than sympathizing with them and acknowledging  a very serious problem.

Clinton wanted the U.S. to apologize for slavery.

She supported the Defense of Marriage Act, then said she “evolved” on same-sex marriage.

Also, she supports “hate” crimes laws. Even though all crimes are commited with contempt for the victim.

She wrote an op-ed claiming Common Core was recycled Clinton policy from the 1980s and 1990s. She opposes school vouchers.

Clinton believes in so-called manmade “global warming” and supports the Kyoto Treaty and cap and trade policy.

Plagiarized the title of the book “It Takes a Village.” Author Jonah Goldberg said of the book: “No more thorough explication of the liberal fascist agenda can be found than in Hillary Clinton’s best-selling book, “It Takes a Village.” All the hallmarks of the fascist enterprise reside within its pages.” Clinton learned from Marian Wright Edelman how to use children as propaganda tools for her ideological agenda: childhood is a crisis, and the government must come to the rescue. “I cannot say enough in support of home visits,” Clinton said.

Big government advocate.

Clinton said Wall Street donates to me because I rebuilt them after 9/11.

She voted against voter ID, though the Democrats require photo ID to attend their national conventions.

Clinton wants tough gun control and says gun manufacturers should be subject to lawsuits (for individuals’ behavior).

She says that because she is a woman she is a political outsider.

If elected president, Mrs. Clinton says Bill Clinton will advise her and represent the U.S. abroad.

She considers herself a member of the “Christian Left.” It’s a religion whose “god” is government.

She voted against the confirmation of John Roberts and Samuel Alito.

Clinton is proud of the controversial nuclear agreement with Iran in which the U.S. got taken for a ride.

As a U.S. Senator, Mrs. Clinton delivered a half-billion dollars in earmarks to 59 corporations. Then 64 percent of those corporations donated to her campaign.

She said she flew into Bosnia in 1996 and ran through sniper fire on the ground. Video showed a calm, peaceful deplaning, and Clinton later called the lie a “minor blip.”

The Clinton Foundation has accepted millions of dollars in exchange for political favors by Hillary and Bill Clinton, and it is still happening today. The Clintons have accepted illegal campaign cash from convicted criminals like Mauricio Celis, of Mexico, and Norman Hsu, of Hong Kong. They pardoned Mark Rich after his wife gave them a huge donation

In his book, “Liberal Fascism,” Jonah Goldberg wrote: Clinton “is a representative figure, the leading member of a generational cohort of elite liberals who brought fascist themes into mainstream liberalism. … What follows, then, is a group portrait of Hillary and her friends – the leading proponents and exemplars of liberal fascism in our time.”

She was offered an internship in the Berkeley office of attorney Robert Truehaft, a communist who fought for the Stalinist faction the California labor movement.

As an attorney in Arkansas, Mrs. Clinton wrote articles in favor of children’s “rights” to divorce their parents. Goldberg wrote: “Hillary Clinton’s writings on children show a clear, unapologetic, and principled desire to insert the state deep into family life – a goal that is in perfect accord with similar efforts by totalitarians of the past. … She condones the state’s assumption of parental responsibilities … because she is opposed to the principle of parental authority in any form.” She believes families hold children back and the state sets them free. “Hillary Clinton’s ideas are, in general, fascist.”

Hillary’s guru was Rabbi Michael Lerner, who authored The New Socialist Revolution. He wrote of the coming socialist take-over.

One of Hillary Clinton’s most outrageous statements: “We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”

 

State Moves for Pension Reform; Voter Approval Needed

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 16, 2016

PHOENIX – Governor Doug Ducey today signed bipartisan legislation that will preserve the state’s pension system for police and firefighters, lower the financial burden on public employers and bring needed predictability for hardworking, tax-paying Arizonans. Key elements of the plan require voter approval, and will go to the ballot on May 17.

“It’s been a long process, but the result is a bipartisan, well-informed and meaningful plan that will protect our taxpayers while providing a sustainable pension system for the women and men who risk their lives every day to keep us safe,” said Governor Ducey. “I’m grateful to Senator Debbie Lesko – who has been working closely with stakeholders and lawmakers to come up with a workable plan – as well as all the legislators who’ve stepped up to support it.  Today, we are one step closer to setting our pension system on a path to financial stability while improving the way it serves our brave cops and firefighters.”

The pension reform package, sponsored by Senator Lesko in SB 1428 and SB 1429, makes several changes to the current Public Safety Personnel Retirement System, which has long been seen as financially-strained and unsustainable for members and taxpayers alike. Key reforms, which affect new hires only, include:

  • Requiring new public employees to serve until the age of 55 before being eligible for full pension benefits, which will reduce costs to states and cities (taxpayers) and improve the sustainability of the fund;
  • Placing a hard cap on pension benefits for new hires to crack down on “pension spiking” and ensure predictability and accountability for taxpayers;
  • Splitting the cost of pensions 50/50 between employers and new employees to bring the system more in-line with other state retirement plans, ensure both sides have skin in the game and reduce risks to taxpayers;
  • Providing new hires the option of a 100-percent defined contribution plan, similar to a 401K, which allows for increased flexibility and portability of the employee’s funds (e.g. if they move out-of-state);
  • Tie cost-of-living adjustments for retirees’ to the regional Consumer Price Index, with a cap of 2 percent. In order for this change to apply to current members of PSPRS, it will require voter approval on May 17.

“Pension reform has been a crucial issue in Arizona for several years, and it’s become a huge passion project for me over the last year in particular,” said Sen. Lesko. “So, to see it pass through the Legislature with the bipartisan support of not only lawmakers, but also a broad coalition of stakeholders who once stood on opposite sides of the issue, is a huge victory. I’m thankful to my fellow legislators, for the police and firefighters who’ve worked tirelessly and collaboratively on this smart and sustainable solution, and for Governor Ducey’s vocal support along the way.”

Former State Senator Blasts Washington Cartel

By former Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce
Phyllis Schlafly’s statement about the Omnibus Spending bill passed by Congress, “This is a betrayal of the grassroots and the Republican Party,” she said of the omnibus bill. “We thought we were electing a different crowd to stand up for America, and they didn’t. We’re extremely outraged by what Congress has done.”
I firmly believe there are only two presidential candidates that have the courage and conviction in them to take back America, “To Make America Great Again.” That would be Cruz and Trump.
I am sick and tired of the Washington Cartel and their loyalty to the K-Street Lobbyist, the Chamber of Corruption instead of loyalty to America, the Constitution, the Rule of Law as they continue to betray our trust and their Oath of Office.
Here we go again as they pass a spending bill that violates the trust asked for by Congress as they ran for office. They “promised” us, “Put me in charge and we will fix things, we will stop Obamacare, we will stop the Unconstitutional orders by this president, i.e. Amnesty in violation of law, excessive spending, stop excessive debt, reform entitlements, stop waste and fraud, eliminate pork projects.” NONE of that has happened as they continue to fund all of what they promised they would stop.
The Washington Cartel continues to betray our trust. Promise after Promise broken as they continue to fund this corrupt and incompetent president. I cannot wait until we put an “American” back in the White House. This bi-partisan Congress continues to legally plunder from hard working Americans as they reward the lazy and the abusive. They ignore the trillions of dollars in cost as a result of this illegal invasion they refuse to secure our border and enforce our laws. Deportation is not a bad word, it is our obligation and the TRUTH they will leave on their own and most won’t come it they knew the laws will be enforced.
They continue to mount debt that is inconceivable and perhaps impossible for our Grandchildren and perhaps their children will be able to pay off.
I do believe this election to be “the last hope for America”
We must take action NOW. If we do not confront this invasion of illegal aliens, policies that allow terrorist, drug cartels, out of control spending, ever expanding debt, and the attack on basic freedoms, traditional values, Freedom of Association, Freedom of Religion, 2nd Amendment, Illegal search and seizure, states’ rights and limited federal power, judicial abuse of power, illegal executive orders and protect and preserve those basic God-given rights that our Founders recognized and placed into our Constitution thus placing the responsibility of the government including the courts to safeguard at all cost. Americans have fought and died for these basic Freedoms. We must guard these basic rights and Freedoms against all enemies “foreign and domestic” and those that would do harm to America NOW.   We must protect these basic liberties for our children and grandchildren and make America great again.
Our grassroots voters are “mad as hell” and are not going to take it anymore as they are outraged over this continued betrayal of trust.
This Omnibus spending bill brokered by Speaker Ryan and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is a clear example of betrayal to all Americans. Christmas is alive and well in Washington, as Congress gives Obama a bag of goodies in this bill by funding all of his illegal pet projects and throwing Americans under the bus.
I love the Donald’s condemnation of this betrayal.
“If anyone needed more evidence of why the American people are suffering at the hands of their own government, look no further than the budget deal announced by Speaker Ryan. In order to avoid a government shutdown, a cowardly threat from an incompetent President, the elected Republicans in Congress threw in the towel and showed absolutely no budget discipline.
The American people will have to absorb higher deficits, greater debt, less economic liberty and more corporate welfare. Congress cannot seem to help itself in bending to every whim of special interests. How can they face their constituents when they continue to burden our children and grandchildren with debts they will never be able to repay? Our government is failing us, so we must do something about it. Who knows how bad things will be when the next administration comes in and has to pick up the pieces?
The only special interest not being served by our government is the American people. It is time we imposed budget discipline by holding the line on spending, getting rid of waste, fraud and abuse, and by taking on our debt. To do these things, we need a President who can lead the fight to hold Congress and the rest of government accountable. Together, we will Make America Great Again.”
It is clear both parties have betrayed America. Enough is enough. I believe America is ready for a change and Congress keeps proving why we need a change. Maybe most of Congress should be changed out. “At least a good start would be those who voted for this Omnibus Spending bill.
As so eloquently stated by others, “The Omnibus disaster was a $1.1 trillion in-kind campaign donation to Donald Trump” or perhaps Senator Ted Cruz.
Senator Ted Cruz’s liberty score is 97 percent; Speaker Paul Ryan’s liberty score is 56 percent and that is generous; I warned about Paul Ryan’s agenda and his devotion to the Washington Cartel, his contempt for fixing the problems, his support of Amnesty and failure to address border security and his failure to honoring America and Americans with his failed leadership and his failure to restore sanity in Washington and he has proven me right.
In fact the establishment has gone after the Tea Party Patriots who want to take America back and restore our Founding Principles. Power has an uncanny ability to corrupt and Washington is a clear example. We need Warriors in defense of liberty, to protect America and Americans.
As they continue their attack on Tea Party Patriots, on outsiders like Trump and Cruz, they continue to prove these two guys are right and why they are needed. Washington will never fix itself and especially if we keep returning those to power that have proven their contempt for we the people. The power brokers in Washington continue to try and convince you Trump or Cruz cannot beat Hillary. First of all it is a lie and secondly if were true there would be no little or hope for America continuation of a liar and corrupt politician in the White House.

A Sign of Hope for the Navajo Nation

 

It was a small sign of hope: a member of the Navajo Nation switching over to the Republican Party. It may or may not represent something big.

Native Americans, long beholden to the party of socialism, may cast him out of the Arizona State Senate in 2016. They may seem him as an outcast, a renegade. We will see what happens come election season.

Carlyle Begay made his decision based on fiscal reasons. Reasons of fiscal sanity. The Republican Party is, with a few exceptions on the state and national levels, the party of fiscal responsibility.

Republicans welcomed Begay to the party and said he is now better positioned to serve his legislative district, including in areas of education and the economy.

The GOP is right, and Legislative District 7 is now in the hands of a state leader who has their better interests in mind.

After all, the socialists are the people of Big Government and Small Citizens with less freedom, the party that refused to even create a budget in recent years when they held power in the U.S. Senate. They are the party that spends more money than the government actually has, and the party that — without resistance — will always call for deficit spending.

You and I can’t operate our personal finances like that, or we’d soon be broke and wouldn’t be able to live within our means.

Hopefully other Navajos will see the wisdom of Began and state leaders who demand the state keep its financial affairs in order.

Hopefully, they’ll realize they’ve been duped by the Democrats for as long as they can remember.

Hopefully they’ll realize you can’t tax yourselves into prosperity, that socialists eventually run out of other people’s money.

Hopefully Navajos and other Native Americans will come around on social issues as well.

They have to, some day. The socialists have led them down the path of destruction. Reservations have been pockets of poverty. Socialists have done them no favors. The socialists are the purveyors of a culture of death, social deconstruction and family disorder. They preach a sexual anarchy that only destroys.

Socialism hasn’t improved employment on reservations. It hasn’t ended social problems. It has not the capacity to do anything to positively impact Native American society. Or any other part of society, for that matter.

Being served by an elected official who understands that is a positive step forward for the Navajo people. We hope they understand that and will re-elect Begay again next fall. Many of his fellow citizens would do well to follow his courageous lead.

Lite Rail a Trainwreck, Derails Rationale for Prop 104

The contention that light rail is a good investment because “it serves nearly as many people as SR 51” is a ludicrous distortion of reality.

Even if we allow for the absurd comparison of the ridership for the ENTIRE light rail system to be compared with this single freeway we can observe that SR 51 carries over 150,000 vehicles per day at its busiest point near the junction with I-10 to over 80,000 at its least busy point near the outer loop. This is 100 percent more than the  touted 43,000 riders per day for all light rail routes combined.

Light rail is, and forever will be, a tiny contributor to the region’s mobility. Its less than 100 million passenger miles per year pales in comparison to the Phoenix freeways’ 11 billion vehicle miles of travel and the street system’s 30 billion vehicle miles of travel. Yet, Prop 104’s allocation of funds plans to spend only 7 percent of the revenues on roads–3 percent to add lanes and 4 percent to remove lanes to make way for bike paths, pedestrians, and light rail trains.

In contrast, Prop 104 plans to spend 40 percent of the revenues on a light rail system that will accommodate only three-tenths of one-percent of travel. This is an unbalanced allocation that compels the 99 percent who drive to heavily subsidize the less than 1 percent who use rail transit. Lest we think that these subsidies to light rail are aimed at helping the poor, Valley Metro boasts that rail is attracting more higher income riders.

Here’s the deal: if Prop 104 passes or if it voted down–either way–99 percent of travel in the city will continue to take place in automobiles. Light rail will play an insignificant role in how people move about the community. Is this insignificant impact worth taking on all the burdens of deficits, debt, and higher taxes that Prop 104 will impose?

Governor Ducey Trimming Fat from State’s Bloated Spending

Tom Jenney, president of Americans for Prosperity Arizona Chapter, writes …

The wailing and moaning you’re about to hear on your television and see in your newspaper is the sound of Arizona’s spending lobbies after they read the executive budget released today by Arizona’s new Governor, Doug Ducey.

TAKE ACTION TO SUPPORT GOV. DUCEY’S BUDGET

Supporters of Big Government will HATE this budget:

●  The school district bureaucrats who steal money from the students and teachers in our classrooms will loathe the fact that Gov. Ducey’s budget reduces administrative bureaucracy by $113 million (with no cuts to actual classroom spending).

●  The corporate crony capitalists will wail about the $100 million slush fund Gov. Ducey wants to take away from the Arizona Commerce Authority.

●  The educrats who waste taxpayer money and student tuition dollars at our community colleges and universities will scream about the $84 million in reductions to their budgets.

They and their hundreds of lobbyists are going to fight hard to try to stop these cuts.  We need Arizona’s taxpayers, producers and consumers to STAND UP NOW and support Gov. Ducey’s budget reforms.

Ducey’s budget has more than $660 million in spending reductions for the fiscal year starting July 1 ($360 million is permanent and $304 million is temporary).  The permanent reductions will increase to nearly $450 million in the following fiscal year, when – for the first time since the go-go days of the real estate boom – the state budget will actually be structurally balanced.  WITH NO TAX INCREASES.

For real.

We’re not kidding.

We have always had a core of real fiscal conservatives at the Arizona Legislature who believed in balanced budgets and wanted to protect Arizona’s taxpayers, producers and consumers.  But for the first time in recent memory, an Arizona governor is actually taking the leadership role of holding the line against the growth of Big Government.

The executive budgets of Governors Napolitano and Brewer had absurdly high revenue predictions and dangerously high spending proposals that had to be cut down by the real leaders in the Legislature.  But it’s a new day in Arizona!  (For you budget wonks out there, Gov. Ducey’s $9.1 billion budget is well under the prudent budget limit of population-plus-inflation.)

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

SPECIAL BULLETIN

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.

STATEWIDE RACES

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.

CONGRESSIONAL RACES

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.

Judges

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

Props

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.

CONCLUSION

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.

* The reason we refer to Democrats as the party of CONTROL is because their radical philosophy is to try to control every aspect of your lives — to your detriment.

Fred DuVal: Bad for Arizona … Great for Big Out of Control Government

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.

Taxpayer Watchdog Group: YES on Phoenix Proposition 487

By Tom Jenney, President
Americans for Prosperity, Arizona Chapter

YES on City of Phoenix Proposition 487 –– Prop 487 would solve the City’s nearly $1.5 billion unfunded pension liability problem by moving new employees to a plan similar to the 401k plans that are common in the private sector.   Prop 487 would fix the City’s scandalous $190 million pension spiking problem by limiting the excess pension benefits given to current employees.
