    Congressional Record | 1963 | US Congress
    From "45 Communist Goals", Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963 Current Communist Goals [1963]: 1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war. 2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war. 3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength. 4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. 5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites. 6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist...

    Raccoon Exterminator! I have been drawn between candidates and have not made up my mind. I just need some particulars before I follow the Pied Piper. Trump does bring some new ideas to the table. When was the last time you could vote for the ideal candidate? Iím old, and I've always voted. I canít remember ever thinking any were ideal. We always have two choices, usually Tweedledee and Tweedledum. If you didnít vote for Tweedledee you got Tweedledum. Thatís the way it is folks. Now consider thisÖ An interesting analogy. You've been on vacation for two weeks, you come...

    Smithsonian Cable TV | 2/7/2016 | Self
    Watched a program called "Great Planes" on the Smithsonian Channel. It was about the Doanld's Boeing 757 they call the "T-Bird". The program does describe the plane but more importantly it shows you a great deal about the man who owns it. It shows his attention to detail, his drive and I think maybe most of all, the way his employees and those who do work for him respect him. I recommend it as a good way to get to know the 'other side' of The Donald'. It could change your vote.

    Thank you for contacting me to relay your concerns regarding Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, prisoner of war who went missing in Afghanistan in 2009. I appreciate you taking the time to share your views with me. As you know, on June 20, 2009, Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl went missing while serving in Afghanistan. Since that time, Islamic militant groups have released multiple videos showing Sergeant Bergdahl, the most recent of which was released in January with a reference date of December 14, 2013. As a former POW, please rest assured that I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to...

    A question I have not heard asked or obviously answered is, What does Trump do vis a vis his empire if he becomes president? COO of a ten Billion dollar empire stretching across several continents and countries is quite a responsibility to pass off to a blind trust. Just wondering.

    My Friend, Today, the Supreme Court just upheld Obamacare yet again. This is the direct result of President Obama and his Democrat allies in Congress. They forced ObamaCare on the American people with false promises and a totally partisan vote. My new Democrat opponent, Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, is one of the strongest ObamaCare supporters in Washington. She even said her vote for ObamaCare was the one she "was most proud about." We all know ObamaCare has been a disaster, resulting in rising costs, lost jobs, and reduced health care choices for the people of our state. If you agree with...

    Thank you for contacting me with your concerns about the targeting of Conservative organizations by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). I appreciate hearing from you on this issue. Like many Americans, I am disturbed by the idea that the IRS would target groups for their political beliefs. These actions by the IRS have caused many to lose trust in the federal government and in the agency's ability to administer our nation's tax laws. As you may know, in May 2013, the IRS Inspector General released a report stating that inappropriate criteria were used to identify 501(c)(4) status applications for review....

    Thank you for contacting me regarding climate change. I appreciate knowing your thoughts on this issue. Last year, President Obama announced a plan to address climate change. Unfortunately, most of the Administration's proposals would simply impose burdensome regulations on American business that would be harmful to the U.S. economy. While I welcome the opportunity to debate proposals in the Senate, I do not support the use of executive orders to implement policy and place costly new regulations on the American industry. According to extensive international scientific studies, including reports by the National Academy of Sciences and the Intergovernmental Panel on...

    My Friend, Earlier this week when the Senate was asked to vote on confirming Loretta Lynch as the next Attorney General of the United States, I voted no. During her confirmation hearing before the Judiciary Committee, Ms. Lynch stated her belief that the President's recent executive actions on immigration were "reasonable" and "constitutional." My Friend, I could not support anyone to be the highest law enforcement official in America who supports the President's clearly unconstitutional actions. That's why I cast my vote "NO." The job of the U.S. Attorney General is to represent the people of the United States and...

    Senator Jeff Flake | 4/21/15 | Sen. Flake Az.
    Thank you for contacting me about President Obama's nominee for United States Attorney General. I appreciate receiving your comments on this matter. As you may know, on November 7, 2014, President Obama nominated Loretta Lynch to replace Attorney General Eric Holder. On February 26, 2015, the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary voted to approve Ms. Lynch's nomination by a vote of 12 to 8. I voted in favor of her nomination. I believe that elections have consequences and that elected presidents should be afforded a certain degree of deference in the presidential appointment process, particularly when the nominee...

    Thank you for contacting me about the President's executive action on immigration. On November 20, 2014, President Obama announced unilateral executive actions regarding the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws. Among other provisions, these actions seek to postpone the deportation of the parents of children who are either U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents and provide them with a work permit. The criteria for those eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a program that allows certain illegal immigrants who entered the United States before their sixteenth birthday and before June 2007 to receive a work permit and temporary authorization to...

    Thank you for contacting me about the letter sent by Republican Senators to the leadership in Iran regarding a nuclear agreement. As you know, on March 9, 2015, 47 Republican Senators sent a letter to the leaders of Iran addressing a prospective agreement on Iran's nuclear program. In the letter, the cosigners advised that Congress could revoke any agreement reached with Iran. I did not sign this letter. While I believe that Congress should have a say on any agreement Ė after all, Congress will need to repeal the sanctions from which Iran seeks relief as part of an agreement...

    Dear Friend: Thank you for contacting me to express your view that President Obama should be impeached and removed from office. I apologize for the delay in my response. The impeachment and removal of a President are extraordinary actions, defined in Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution, that should be taken only when the individual holding that office has been found to have committed treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. Like you, I am deeply concerned and disturbed with the recent scandals ranging from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) targeting conservative organizations, secret e-mail accounts by government...

    Thank you for contacting me to relay your concerns regarding Iran and our efforts for a comprehensive nuclear agreement. I appreciate learning your thoughts on this important issue. For many years, Congress has recognized the threat of the Iranian nuclear program and has taken the lead on initiating sanctions. Over time, the economic sanctions imposed on Iran have increased their willingness to negotiate. On November 23, 2013, the Iranian government agreed to halt further expansion of their nuclear program in exchange for temporary sanctions relief and entered into extensive negotiations about a nuclear deal that would outline the final arrangements...

    My own observation is that the web page for Kirkpatrick (D. AZ1) refuses any more comments about the border, disease, etc. but will accept comments on other topics. Anyone else experience the same situation with her or maybe a different congresscritter? The uproar must be increasing. What say?
