MARICOPA COUNTY NUMBER 1

Maricopa County cast the second most number of votes for Romney (749,885 with only 602,288 for Obama) of any county in America. Only Los Angeles County cast more votes for Romney (885 thousand but cast 2.2 million for Obama).
 
Harris County (Houston suburbs) was third at a mere 586,073 thousand for Romney (587,044 for Obama), Orange County fourth at 582,332 (512,440 for Obama) and San Diego County fifth at 532 thousand (652 thousand for Obama). Los Angeles, Harris and San Diego Counties all cast more votes for Obama than for Romney.
 
So Maricopa County is the largest Republican majority county in America with the largest numerical edge for Romney (147,597) - more than twice the numerical advantage of Orange county - and is second to only Los Angeles in total number of Republican votes.
 
Maricopa County also fully or partially represents an overwhelming majority of the Republican Caucus at the Legislature (13 Senators and 25 Representatives). 
 
So Team LaFaro leads the country's largest Republican county and has the opportunity to meet their objective - keeping the county Dark Red.  It is up to the rest of us to provide the resources necessary to reaching that lofty goal.

CONSERVATIVES 5 TOBIN/GRAY 0

In a clean sweep for grass roots conservatives, the Maricopa County Precinct Committeemen repudiated the Tobin/Gray public employee union slate at the Statutory Meeting this morning.  Lisa Gray and her team spent the most money ever in a county leadership election to no avail. 

Slick mailers, robo calls, arm twisting from the second floor at the House of Representatives were not enough to make winners of the integrity challenged slate bought and paid for by union and liberal monied interests. 

The outcome of this election will have a huge impact on the 2014 Election Cycle, especially the elections for legislative and statewide officials.  If elected, Gray and cronies would have worked in league with the establishment power brokers against conservative candidates across the board. 

Now that this election is history, it is time for conservatives to use their offices to advance the Party Platform principles in every way possible.  To not use the authority granted by the electors is the same as losing the election. 

Conservatives have followed that script that guarantees ultimate failure too many times in the past and the American public has been the victim.  Now that the campaign is over, it is now time for governing with integrity, strength and principles. 

Congratulations to LaFaro, Riggins, Borrajero, White and Ludwig.  Enjoy this evening and the Lord's Day tomorrow.  Monday, the real work begins.

NO GRAY AREA


OR GRAY MATTER

It is Black or White and Left or Right

Lisa and her cronies leave no gray area on their lack of conservative qualifications.  In addition to their own liberal/progressive/ purple/RINO public employee union/illegal immigration public record nearly all of their legislative endorsements are either exiles from the cellar mushrooms or Tobin sycophants we have grown to abhor.  By their fruits you shall know them.

Gray and gang are so devoid of Constitutional Party Platform principles that they are demonstrating their lack of character integrity and gray matter by taking the only avenue left - misrepresent the solid grass roots conservative values. 

Make the RIGHT choice - VOTE Team LaFaro

Just when I thought it was safe

to go to a District 23 meeting.

The Mustang Library lived up to its name!

Wild Horses - cattle thieves - they're nothing!

How about the Gunfight at the OK Corral.

Doug Little and Team LaFaro played the roles of Doc Holliday and the Earp Brothers.

Lisa and Rick Gray played the McLaurys and Robert Graham came to the showdown in Act 3 playing Ike Clanton

It has been years since the refined folks of North Scottsdale heard terms like "s**-of-a-bi***" and "public union bi*** boy" in the same meeting.  In addition, Mr. Little charges that the Little family has been threatened, his business clients coerced and even the firm where Mrs. Little works had been a target for negative financial consequences if Doug Little did not drop out of the campaign. 

His response - "I will never give in to threats and intimidation." 

 GAME ON!

Look for more specifics in the coming days, but let it suffice to say that the calm campaign for party leaders has been forsaken for a more vigorous battle.

Arizona Party Builders? Which Party?


Excerpted from Armorandshield.blogspot.com

With the fiasco surrounding the Republican Victory Fund still fresh in our minds, we couldn't help but raise an eyebrow when we learned that two candidates on a slate running for the Maricopa County Republican Committee voted against a resolution to censure Senate President Steve Pierce, and House Speaker Andy Tobin for their involvement.

Why would Lisa Gray and Rene Lopez vote against the resolution? Were they not concerned about the underhanded actions taken by Pierce when he allowed Rich Crandall to benefit financially using the RVF money during a primary campaign? Did they not care that Tobin tabled union bills after receiving money from unions during his campaign? Or, just maybe it was because Tobin contributed a glowing endorsement for her husband, Rick Gray? Is there a potential conflict of interest if a County Chairman is married to a member of the legislature?

This made us begin to wonder if there were other irregularities about their vague campaign promises and shiny fa├žade. Especially when we read that Lisa Gray has the support of "Kook" Queen Laurie Roberts. In fact, Roberts hopes that Lisa Gray wins the MCRC election.

Adopt a Terrorist


National Defense Headquarters
101 Colonel By Drive
Ottawa,ON Canada K1A 0K2

Dear Concerned Citizen,

Thank you for your recent letter expressing your profound concern of treatment of the Taliban and Al Qaeda terrorists captured by Canadian Forces, subsequently transferred to the Afghani Government and currently being held by Afghan officials in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities.

Our administration takes these matters seriously and your opinions were heard loud and clear here in Ottawa. You will be pleased to learn, thanks to the concerns of citizens like yourself, we are creating a new department here at the Department of National Defense, to be called ‘Libertarians Accept Responsibility for Killers' program, or L.A.R.K. for short.

As a pilot program, we will divert one terrorist and place him in your personal care. Your detainee  is scheduled for transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence in Toronto next Monday.

Ali Mohammed Ahmed bin Mahmud (you can just call him Ahmed) is to be cared for pursuant to the standards you personally demanded in your letter of complaint!  It will likely be necessary for you to hire some assistant caretakers. We will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your standards of care for Ahmed are commensurate with those you so strongly recommended in your letter. Although Ahmed is a sociopath and extremely violent, we hope that your sensitivity to what you described as his ‘attitudinal problem’ will help him overcome these character flaws.

Perhaps you are correct in describing these problems as mere cultural differences. We understand that you plan to offer counseling and home schooling. Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in hand-to-hand combat and can extinguish human life with such simple items as a pencil or nail clippers. We advise that you do not ask him to demonstrate these skills at your next yoga group. Please advise any Jewish friends, neighbors or relatives about your house guest, as he might get agitated or even violent, but we are sure you can reason with him. He is also expert at making a wide variety of explosive devices from common household products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up, unless (in your opinion) this might offend him.

Ahmed will not wish to interact with you or your daughters (except sexually) since he views females as a subhuman form of property thereby having no rights, including refusal of his sexual demands. This is a particularly sensitive subject for him and he has been known to show violent tendencies around women who fail to comply with the new dress code that he will "recommend" as more appropriate attire.  I'm sure you will come to enjoy the anonymity offered by the burka over time. Just remember that it is all part of 'respecting his culture and religious beliefs' as described in your letter.

Thanks again for your concern. We truly appreciate it when folks like you keep us informed of the proper way to do our job and care for our fellow man. You take good care of Ahmed and remember we'll be watching.  Good luck and God bless you,

Cordially,

Gordon O'Connor
Minister of National Defense

Perhaps Arizona could implement a similar program for those who justify and enable illegal aliens violating our sovereignty.

Required Reading for AZ Legislators

Breitbart.com today runs a story ( http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/01/08/Economy-Grows-Revenues-Increase-After-Texas-Slashes-Spending ) that should be required reading for all of our Arizona Legislators.  The story is focused on the unexpected growth in Texas Budget revenues and the underlying reason for that growth. 

In 2011, Texas was facing a $21 BILLION shortfall in its general fund.  To address the issue, Texas took a different course than Arizona.  The Legislature and Governor passed a "cut-to-the-bone" budget.  No mortgaging state owned buildings in order to keep the public employee union leaders happy.  No fancy financial fudging using 'baseline'  instead of 'zero' budget procedures.  No business as usual.

And the result?  Texas not only eliminated the shortfall, revenues increased by $8.8 BILLION more than projected one year later.  AP now reports  “unemployment now is at a four-year low of 6.2 percent, sales tax receipts are skyrocketing and money is pouring into state coffers behind a new energy boom.”

If Arizona wants to become more than a fly-over state for businesses fleeing California and their fruit cake Legislature and Governor, it must reduce the tax burden on businesses.  The governor and many legislators are already talking about increased state government spending this year. 

The Legislature begins its work next Monday, the 14th and the appointment calendar of every legislator is already clogged with meetings with taxpayer-paid lobbyists for the education industry, the taxpayer-paid lobbyists for the cities and towns, the taxpayer-paid lobbyists for the counties, and the taxpayer-paid lobbyists for the state agencies. 

If the taxpayers of Arizona want a booming economy, lower unemployment rates and lower taxes across the board, it is time for them to personally contact their elected officials and demand a cessation in the status quo. 

Ronald Reagan said it best.  Pay special attention to the last sentence of this great speech.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KXtspnYtLU&feature=related

Huppenthal describes his A.S.S.

John Huppenthal, Arizona's Superintendent of Public Instruction, tonight introduced his plan to replace the AIMS test with his new Arizona State Standards (A.S.S. --  REALLY, that is what he has called his new brain dump).  Supposedly this will improve the level of student achievement in our state.

In what was a shocker to everyone in attendance at his community Q and A Forum at Grand Canyon University, Huppenthal showed his absolute dearth of knowledge on the main education threat facing our state and country - Agenda 21.  While many people may not have intimate knowledge of all the details that are incorporated in the UN and Obama Administration ideological hemorrhage, for the State Superintendent of Public Instruction to not even know the term is especially quizzical.

Of further concern to those in attendance, Mr. Huppenthal stated that he fully embraces Common Core Standards - the same standards that have been embedded in places like Chicago, Washington, DC and other liberal bastions of socialism.  Huppenthal eventually let slip the reason he ran for the office - the retirement benefits seemed to top the list.

His positions are an embarassment to the Republican Party and could do for our state k-12 system what Barack's policies have brought to the federal budget  -  bankrupt ideas instead of monetary bankruptcy. 

It is time to find a qualified person to run against and defeat Mr. Huppenthal in the August 2014 Primary Election.  This office in the wrong hands will do more damage to future generations of Arizonans than any other statewide office - including the Governor's office.

Please flush your A.S.S. down the John, Mr. Superintendent and implement real education reforms like total parental choice in schools for our students.

The Fifty First Arizona Legislature

Arizona, 


A red state where every statewide office is held by a Republican for the first time in the history of the state;

A red state where Republicans now hold every county wide office in Maricopa, Mohave, Pinal and Yavapai Counties for the first time in history;

A red state where Republicans hold every county wide office with the following exceptions in Cochise (1), Gila (1)and Graham (2) Counties;

A red state where Republicans hold more municipal offices than ever before in history;

has now returned to a purple legislature due to leadership that placed personal power and future office aspirations above Republican Party principles and the people of this state.

Speaker Tobin hatched a plan in cooperation with President Pierce and establishment lobbyists and organizations that strangled the Arizona Republican Party by diverting funds to his own IE PAC.  When you follow the campaign finance reports, it is clear that, as a rule, GOP conservative candidates were viewed as pariahs not worthy of being financially supported by this Speaker and, therefore, well qualified conservative candidates lost to inferior Democrat candidates that were funded by Democrat legislative leaders. 

The $25,000 still in the House Victory Fund and the $38,000 still in the Senate Victory Fund as of this date (in addition to nearly a quarter million dollars wasted in consulting fees PLUS doubled mailing fees), could have ensured the victory of at least two more Republican Senators and three more Republican Representatives. 

The Fifty-First Legislature will officially take office next Monday.  As we go through the next four months, we must ever be mindful of the process and hold accountable those who have diminished the ability to pass strong conservative legislation.  When those times occur - and they will occur - remember the improper self-serving actions of the Yavapai Yahoos in 2012.

The Fifty-First Arizona Legislature


Why the reduced GOP Senate majority?


While Republicans still muster a majority in both houses of the legislature, the veto-proof majority is a thing of the past.  In spite of the incessant excuses injected into the mainstream media by their communications wonks, the main reason for this reduction lies at the feet of Speaker Tobin and former Senate President Pierce.  Former Senate President Pierce must take the primary responsibility for our fragile majority in the Senate.  He grabbed most of the headlines due to his outlandish actions that led to a huge amount of Republican Victory Committee funds being inappropriately spent in a primary election.  That was compounded by his failure to adequately fund races in competitive districts during the General Election.

Point one was the spending of about $100,000.00 of those funds denigrating Rep. John Fillmore and misleading voters about the "conservative" credentials of Sen. Rich Crandall (Crandall was the lowest rated Republican in either house of the legislature for the Goldwater Scorecard and fell below Democrats in the PAChyderm Coalition Rankings).   The fact that Crandall was committed to voting for Pierce for President and that Fillmore was committed to voting for newly elected Andy Biggs for President was well known at the Capital and was recognized by all the political rail birds across the state as the reason this money was being wasted in a “safe” Republican Primary.

Point two was the refusal of the Pierce Senate Republican Victory Fund to allocate any resources in Legislative Districts eight, nine and ten, all listed as “Competitive”.    Again, the core reason for the refusal to help Antenori, Mott and Ortiz was well known.  They were all committed to voting for Senator Biggs for President and Pierce was willing to jettison them and their conservative Party Platform values in favor of socialist democrats in order to enhance his re-election as Senate President.  Now the citizens of Arizona will have to endure the power of senators like Crandall, Driggs and McComish who are able to prevent passage of conservative Republican legislation.

Last, the evil scheme designed and carried out by Senator Pierce, Speaker Tobin, National Committeeman Bruce Ash, Super Lobbyist Kevin DeMenna, numerous other lobbyists and a long list of nefarious underlings reduced the ability of the Arizona Republican Party to have the resources to independently assist conservative candidates in the General Election.  Numerous sources have documented written correspondence and first party conversations about the system where possible donors were specifically directed to not contribute any money to the party, but to contribute to the Republican Victory Fund and the House Republican Victory Fund.  The irony of this particular action is that the very people who pressured donors to not contribute to the Party are the very same people who then criticized the Party for not having raised enough money to make more of an impact in the General Election.  Worse than hypocritical, this is Chicago gutter politics treachery.

Ridiculous protestations by Sen. Pierce that he had no control where the money was being allocated fit the “fell and broke my *** laughing” category.  Pierce takes credit for raising the money, selected the Chairman and Treasurer of the “Committee” and was the only obvious beneficiary of expenditures made during the Primary and General Elections. 

Every bill that is in conformance with our Republican principles that fails to get the necessary 16 votes in the Senate should be laid directly at the feet of Senator Pierce.  Arizona deserves better, Constitutional conservative legislators deserve better, the Party deserves better, and the hard working Precinct Committeemen and other volunteers deserve better.

2013 A new page for the AZGOP

2013 will bring new leadership to both the Arizona Republican Party and the Maricopa County Republican Committee. What that will look like is yet to be determined and whether the changes will be an improvement or not will not be known for many months.

2012 was very turbulent and it would be nice if the new year would bring stability but we are not hopeful that will be the case. It appears that the grass roots have been successfully split by the powers on the second floor of the legislature and the ninth floor of the Capitol Tower.

We must all be alert of those who speak of their conservative principles when their work product does not match the rhetoric. It is important that each Precinct Committeeman and State Committeeman do their homework and properly vet each candidate. Blindly following others who may have vested personal interest in the outcome is guaranteed to result in catastrophe.

The Secretary of State campaign contributions filings and the Federal Elections Commission financial records would be the first places to research the candidates. Where a man (or woman) puts their money is one of the best indicators of where their heart is.

2012 - The Beginning or The End?


America - Arizona - AZGOP

All of the above are at a tipping point this year.  YOU can make the difference.  We don't need more meetings, more people being 'involved', or more circular firing squads.

If we are to win this war for the American Way, it will take a strong COMMITMENT to the battle by people who are willing to give up everything, instead of using the system to enhance themselves.

Remember, in a bacon and eggs breakfast, the chicken is involved while the pig is committed.  Are you willing to sacrifice all to restore our country to the values enshrined in the Constitution?

Congratulations
Reince Priebus new RNC Chair

The Wisconsin Republican Party Chairman, Reince Priebus has been elected as the new Chairman of the Republican National Committee on the seventh ballot.  Mr. Priebus led on every ballot, and increased his vote total on every ballot that culminated with 97 votes.  The Committee later unanimously approved his selection by acclimation.


The former Chairman, Michael Steele, dropped out after the fourth ballot as his support waned on every ballot from 44 on the first ballot to 28 on the fourth. 


Mr. Priebus has a record of suporting the grass roots activists, working closely with AFP, Tea Party and other conservative organizations in what has traditionally been a blue state.  Under his leadership, the GOP won the US Senate Seat (defeating Russ Feingold of the notorious McCain-Feingold law), the Governorship, six of the Congressional seats and both houses of the Legislature.

Haney, Conservative Slate
squashes McCain, Cheatham

Today's Maricopa County Statutory Meeting at the El Zaribah Shrine Auditorium, was the site of an overwhelming Conservative victory in the election of Republican Party Leadership for the next two years.  Incumbent Chairman Rob Haney defeated newcomer McCain supported candidate Bill Cheatham by the largest margin in recent memory. 

The winning margin of more than 700 votes, 1281 for Haney to 575 for Cheatham, should be a message that should at long last be accepted by the big government, amnesty loving, left wing of the Party that they are not in step with the majority of Republicans in this state. 


If those who advocate for bigger government, ceding of states rights, amnesty, socialized medicine, abortion rights and homosexual rights want to continue in the political arena, perhaps they should follow the advice of President Ronald  Reagan:

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs, which must not be compromised to political expediency or simply to swell its numbers.... And if there are those who cannot subscribe to these conservative principles, then let them go their own way."

Let us know when you are having your Bon Voyage party, so we can join in the celebration.

Misplaced finger pointing

"Unintended consequences by one's actions do come home to roost.", states Wes Harris, in a visceral diatribe against Rob Haney. It is unfortunate that Mr. Harris makes accusations against one of our greatest patriots in Maricopa County. It is nearly surreal considering the fact that Mr. Harris has done little more than create disharmony and conflict in his short time in the Party.


Lets see if we can help Mr. Harris. It is the right, no, the DUTY of every conservative Republican to bend every effort supporting the conservative candidate on the ballot - General AND Primary.  Rob Haney has a clear and consistent record of fulfilling that duty.  Every conservative registered voter - including Precinct Committeemen - should do likewise. To do less would be an abrogation of the values that true conservatives espouse.


Going further, Mr. Tom Husband has gone on record challenging you to substantiate that Mr. Haney used his office title to endorse or support any candidate in the Primary.  You have failed to provide such documentation, since there is none available.  NOTE:  No Precinct Committeeman or Party Elected Official is required to give up their Freedom of Speech rights in order to serve.

We are surprised about one thing you allege Mr. Haney did. For him to converse with you in a pleasant manner is more than you deserved.  Maybe that is due to the fact he was not surprised at your baseless charges considering your actions since you stumbled out into the political arena in an obvious effort to promote yourself.


You can be comforted by the fact that your actions will not be laid at the feet of the Tea Party. No one of import has looked at you as a bonafide representative of the Tea Party for many months. 

We are especially mindful of the fact that this attack comes less than 24 hours prior to the Statutory Meeting.  Exactly how much are you under the influence of the RINO/Chamber functionaries - as much as Ms Bolick, who raised much of her campaign funds from that particular group?

If you are going play politics, you should at least learn the basics of the game before you try your hand at intrigue.

Pearce Response
to McComish

On Tuesday, Sen. Elect John McComish made the foolish mistake to complain to The Capitol Times for "unfair" actions by Sen. President Elect Russell Pearce.  http://azcapitoltimes.com/news/2010/11/30/mccomish-calls-senate-committee-assignments-%e2%80%98unfair%e2%80%99/

For a person with eight years at the Capitol and having served in leadership in the House, this came across as the inappropriate actions of a newcomer to the scene.  It was not destined to turn out good for McComish.

Yesterday, the response came from the President Elect, and it was as expected: 
http://azcapitoltimes.com/strike-everything/2010/12/01/pearce-blasts-mccomish-over-committee-complaints/

Sounds like R. Lee Ermey in the Geico Ad:

TSA Methods Will Kill More Americans on Highway


The recent public ire toward the TSA’s new pat-down and body imaging screening methods is likely to lead to a spike in car-related deaths that will be far larger than any plane-related safety benefits.

As the nation readies for one of the busiest traveling holidays, Steven Horwitz, a professor of economics at St. Lawrence University, states that the probable spike in road travel, caused by adverse feelings towards the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) new screening procedures, would lead to more car-related deaths.  

Car-related accidents now account for 115 deaths EVERY DAY in the United States.  That is comparable to the crash of one commuter airliner daily!


“Driving is much more dangerous than flying, as you are far more likely to be killed in an automobile accident mile-for-mile than you are in an airplane,” said Horwitz. “The result will be that the new TSA procedures will kill more Americans on the highway.”


Clifford Winston, a senior fellow of economic studies at the Brookings Institute, said that the airline industry will definitely see a decline in passengers if the public’s contempt for the pat-downs and advanced-imaging technology systems continues.

Anecdotally, a friend of ours who usually flies for family and personal reasons once every couple of months, has already made the decision to not fly as long as these procedures are in place.

So, we will have a negative impact on our economy AND we will end up killing more Americans. Sounds like a success story for the Soros, Obama, Napolitano Progressive Communists.

Obama Speak at Work

"One of the most frustrating aspects of this fight against terrorism is that it has created a whole security apparatus around us that causes a huge inconvenience for ALL of us,"   -BHO

We have missed the photo ops of the First Family going through the TSA Groping.  We do not ever want to see the naked scans of B. Hussein, Michelle or their Progeny.  That would probably make us go instantly blind.

This embarrassingly stupid assertion goes along with his call for redistribution of wealth - except for him and his friends and his call for a reduced carbon footprint - except for him and his friends.

His narcissistic, irrational policies - especially when implemented by Nappy - really does call for a law that requires the people who institute public policy to have to be the first to use it. 

What a crock, Barack!

Shellacked at home
then Shellacked abroad


It appears that the President has failed in his billion dollar mission to restore his tarnished image.  On November 2, the policies of Barack Hussein were repudiated by his foster countrymen with a thorough shellacking at the ballot box.  Americans made the right choice in turning out nearly seventy Democrat Congressmen along with the governors of almost all of the midwestern states plus a few more for good measure.


For comfort and reactualization of his ID, Barack Hussein returned to his boyhood homeland.  To his dismay, this journey became the location of his second shellacking in two weeks at the hands of his muslim, sino and european friends.


Sometimes a boy just doesn't know where to turn for repair to his ego.  Maybe he should try the country that calls him their son - Kenya.  It may prove once again that all of life is a circle.

Procrastination will only make the problem worse

Arizona is 900 million dollars in the hole and getting deeper. Our General Fund revenues are about a 100 million dollars a month less than our expenditures. That is about 25 million a week. What that means is the legislature needs to come in NOW and reduce the budget by at least 1.5 billion dollars.

Every day agencies are spending money we don't have. The longer we wait to do the cuts, the less money there will be to fix the problem.  We have agencies that are still bloated with administrators and managers.  We have agencies that were created in good economic times that are duplications of other layers of government or intrude into areas previously handled well by private industry .

Arizona needs to put a five year moratorium on any new regulation by state and local government that restricts business. This moratorium needs to retroactively include many state, county and local regulations that were conceived as hidden tax raising schemes on Arizona businesses and homeowners over the last decade.  All regulations not directly addressing health and safety, that restricts home businesses need to be eliminated.

It is better to see street signs trying to attract customers into a business or store than all these empty storefronts and office buildings. It is better to have someone running a business out of their house than have all these empty foreclosures and "For Sale" signs up and down every street.

City ordinances that require developers to establish an HOA on all new developments need to be rescinded and current property owners need the ability to rescind their current HOA status.  Government must get out of the way if we are to get our economy growing again.

Waiting only makes it worse.

Deja Vu
Goddard Spoils Hess Victory

Growing Our Party has just been informed that Tery Goddard has joined Matt Salmon on the Barry Hess Wall of Infamy for preventing Herr Hess being elected as Arizona Governor! 

Hess is actually gaining ground.  His percentage has grown from 1.67% to 2.16% in the last eight years. 

Check back in 2092 to see if he finally reaches viability.

Conservative Republicans
Continue Sweep

FLASH:
Arizona Senate Leadership:
Russell Pearce - President 
Scott Bundgaard - Majority Leader
Steve Pierce - Majority Whip

Arizona House Leadership:
Kirk Adams - Speaker
Andy Tobin - Majority Leader
Debbie Lesko - Majority Whip

Republicans Score HUGE Gains across America in State Legislatures

Based on unofficial, preliminary returns, legislative chambers that have switched so far are:

§ Alabama House and Senate
§ Arizona House & Senate - Veto Proof
§ Colorado House
§ Indiana House
§ Iowa House
§ Maine House and Senate
§ Michigan House
§ Minnesota House and Senate
§ Montana House
§ New Hampshire House and Senate
§ New York Senate
§ North Carolina House and Senate
§ Ohio House
§ Oregon Tied in both Senate and House
§ Pennsylvania House
§ Washington Senate
§ Wisconsin Assembly and Senate


§ Republicans gained at least 680 State Legislature seats on Tuesday, the largest gain by either party since 1966, surpassing Democratic gains in the post-Watergate election of 1974.


§ The North Carolina Senate is now in Republican control for the first time since 1870.


§ The Minnesota Senate, which held nonpartisan elections until 1974, is under Republican control for the first time.


§ The Alabama legislature is under Republican control for the first time since Reconstruction.


The Texas and Tennessee Houses went from virtually tied to massive Republican gains. The gains in Texas were so big that the Republicans no longer need the Democrats to get state constitutional amendments out of the state legislature.


These gains go all the way down to the municipal level across the nation. That did not happen even in 1994.


This was a tsunami of Epic Proportions!  Now the work begins!

Dems Trail Badly
In Early Returns


Florida:  Early votingis over and it looks terrible for the Democrats.  Here is the updated chart:


Party        2010           2008            2006
Dem        36.5%        45.6%         43.6%
Ind          14.3%        17.1%         15.4%
Rep         49.2%        37.3%         41.0%

Yes, you’re reading that right.
GOP outperforming 2008 by 12 points.

Already, 2.2 million votes have been cast — perhaps not half of what will be cast overall, but not too far from it. And bear in mind, this is a state with 4.6 million registered Democrats and only 4 million registered Republicans (plus 2.2 million independents). Something big might be happening down there — it’s at least clear that the state GOP has been working on its early vote operation.


Not fatal, but not good news for Alex Sink, the Democratic nominee in the close governor’s race. Also not good news for Democratic Reps. Alan Grayson, Suzanne Kosmas, Ron Klein, or Allen Boyd. Nor for Joe Garcia, the Democratic nominee for the open 25th Congressional District in South Florida.


MORE GOOD EARLY NEWS
Pennsylvania: The latest absentee ballot statistics released show a strong Republican tilt in the Keystone State where 53,226 (59%) absentee ballots have been returned by registered Republicans compared with 37,631 (41%) by registered Democrats.

Worse still for Democrats, the enthusiasm gap pollsters have predicted appears to be coming true. So far, Democrats have returned 55% of the absentee ballots they requested. Republicans have returned 67%.

Nevada: In Democratic Clark County, Republicans UP 13 points from a 22-point Democratic advantage in 2008. In Reno's Washoe County, Republicans UP 18 points from a 12-point Democrat advantage in 2008.

Colorado:  Republican over Democrat early returns by 61,500 this year, where Democrats were up over Republicans in 2008 by 25,000 early ballots.  That is a swing of over 86,500 to the GOP!

Straight Talk from Sarah

Today on the Chris Wallace Fox Sunday Show, Governor Palin clearly identified the cabal of liberal politicians and the liberal media in terms we all understand:

"These are corrupt Bastards"

Oh that we had a thousand of Sarah Palins with the integrity and strength to tell it like it is! 

Our Founders had the ability to tell the truth with vigor.  If we are to return America to the strength we once enjoyed, we must face our adversaries and our challenges with such clarity of speech and action.

Figures don't Lie - -
But Liars Figure

SURPRISE!!  Four days before the General Election, we get a skewed, totally misleading Unemployment Figure from the Obama Administration Department of Labor. 

Today, they touted a 21,000 reduction in Initial Claims using a Seasonally (Politically?) Adjusted Rate.

However, the actual number of Initial Claims, according to the DOL, is actually INCREASED by 11,678. 

Does it make you or your neighbor that the Obama Administration lowered the number of people filing new claims through a mathematical formula that they develop?  Is this part of the Hopey Changey thing?

How do you feel about the fact that the real percentage of Americans who want a full time job and cannot find one is actually over 20%?

Will their Seasonally Adjusted numbers somehow be revised next week -- after the Election?  (Happened more than 20 weeks this year.)

Republicans -- The Party of Know! 

Stay tuned for the next sleight of hand by the Party of Snow!
