  • AZ Supreme Court allows OBrewerCare challenge to proceed

    Lobbing a parting shot in Gov. Jan Brewer’s direction as she leaves office, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that state lawmakers have legal standing to challenge the hospital bed tax that is being used to fund a Medicaid eligibility expansion. Read the Supreme Court’s 14-page Opinion here. All of the three dozen legislators are named on page one. At stake in the lawsuit is a critical voter-enacted state constitutional protection that requires two-thirds of the legislature to approve tax or fee increases. Arizona’s Medicaid expansion was funded by a new provider tax on hospitals, and it was not approved...
  • The Heart of the RNC – The Radical Neanderthal Core

    Town Hall ^ | Joanne Moudy
    Dirty politics, lies and cover-ups are the liberal, socialist Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) stock in trade, but one hopes for higher standards from the Republican National Committee (RNC). But apparently that’s too much to expect, especially in Arizona. On Saturday, November 8, Arizona’s RNC National Committeeman Bruce Ash got on the airwaves with quasi-conservative radio talk-show host Emil Franzi, and called for violence against those who happened to support the Tea Party candidate, Chuck Wooten, during the primary in the U.S. Congressional race for AZ D-2. Conservative voters in the greater Tucson area knew the RNC’s top pick for the...
  • Lame duck Gov. Jan Brewer seeks vengeance

    08/25/2014 2:24:03 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 11 replies
    Arizona’s Republican governor Jan Brewer is sliding none too gracefully out the door of the ninth floor office she has occupied in the state Executive Tower. That’s the same office she was so warmly welcomed to in January 2009, when Democrat Janet Napolitano took an early hike to sign on with the Obama administration. Republicans greeted the change with jubilation. (SNIP) Jan Brewer, a woman with over three decades of political experience under her belt, has chosen a destructive path as she wraps up her final term. Rather than remaining neutral in statewide and legislative races, or endorsing GOP incumbents,...

    With less than a week until primary election day, the three Republicans in the First Congressional District race are in a dead heat, a new poll shows. The Remington Research Group poll of 420 likely Republican voters has Andy Tobin with 30 percent of the votes, Adam Kwasman with 29 percent, and Gary Kiehne with 21 percent. The remaining 20 percent of voters said they still are undecided.

    Clearly, given the security issues at hand, this is as solid of ground for the impeachment of Barack Obama as the country could ever have. He cannot refuse his obligation to keep the country secure for any reason, LEAST of all for a political one, and not be impeached. Time to get it done. ISIS is going to nuke the U.S. with a dirty bomb they carry across Barack Obama’s open Mexican border. “The problem is, . . . if we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support ‘comprehensive immigration reform.’” [Audible gasps were heard...
  • AZ CD1 candidate Gary Kiehne steps in it…again

    05/20/2014 4:03:48 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal
    The Arizona Daily Star reports on an apology issued by Arizona Congressional District 1 candidate Gary Kiehne after remarks he made during a GOP candidate debate. The debate also featured state Rep. Adam Kwasman. Another candidate, Andy Tobin, chose not to appear at the event, which was hosted by the Pinal County Republican Committee. Pinal County Republicans unanimously censured the left-leaning Tobin in 2012, a fact which might have effected his decision to boycott the forum. The Maricopa County Republican Executive Guidance Committee also took the previously unprecedented action against Tobin censuring him by a 23 – 5 vote. Although...

Some of them are offering to notarize your PC affidavit and take your signature petitions and affidavit to the County Elections Office for you. Please do not give your signature petitions or affidavit to any stranger.
  • More funny (re-branding) business from Jan Brewer

    05/17/2014 5:04:10 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 7 replies
    The latest news from the governor’s office is that Jan Brewer is expected to call the state legislature into a special session to revamp Child Protective Services, the troubled child-welfare agency that shamefully neglected to investigate well over 6,000 reports of child abuse and neglect. Here is her press release on what is rightly termed an “inexcusable situation” and “unconscionable practices.” But in re-crafting the agency, Brewer is doing what she does so well. She’s renaming it. In this press release she announced her Obama-like “Executive Order” craftily renaming Common Core, Obama’s approved federal takeover of America’s education system. Note...

    The incessant and vicious deluge of fetid sludge aimed at Attorney General Tom Horne is in a class by itself. Those who fling this garbage claim to be conservative Republicans. Nothing could be further from the truth. They are carrying a vendetta based on the loss of their candidate in the 2010 campaign, and are engaged in short-sighted and puerile mudslinging aimed at damaging conservative incumbent Tom Horne. In promoting Horne’s marginal challenger they are shortsightedly working toward a General Election victory for the far left Democrat Felecia Rotellini —- sitting on the sidelines smirking, while building her already massive...

    Gubernatorial wannabe Christine Jones has arrogantly claimed (video link) a career as a prosecutor in Compton, California, where she tried drug cases. At a recent press conference, Jones acknowledged to Channel 3 News she was never a prosecutor, but was a ‘certified law student.’ Jones showed reporters an ID badge that identified her as a volunteer law clerk for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office from 1994-1997. Here Christine Jones is outed for what is fittingly called her “Air Farce.”

  • Taxing problems for supposed conservative Arizona candidate Gary Kiehne

    Gary Kiehne, an honest to goodness ropin’ cowboy from rural Arizona, is running for Congress in Arizona’s First Congressional District. At first glance he appears to be the real deal, but according to Wednesday’s Yellow Sheet (subscription only), Kiehne has a problem or two. It seems Kiehne, a reputed multi-millionaire, has not paid his 2013 property tax on a Casa Grande mobile home. Also, this public document available from the Pinal County Assessor’s office indicates he is claiming more than one primary residence, defined in Arizona as Legal Class 3.

    Alana Goodman of the Washington Free Beacon reports: Former Sen. Jon Kyl (R., Ariz.) criticized what he described as a resurgent isolationist streak in Congress during a breakfast discussion at the Capitol Hill Club on Tuesday. Kyl, who led the 2010 Senate fight against President Obama’s missile reduction treaty with Russia, also discussed the American Internationalism Project he launched with former Sen. Joe Lieberman at the American Enterprise Institute. The project seeks to promote the principles of national security, economic prosperity, and American values. “You see [this isolationist streak] both in the House and in the Senate,” said Kyl. “And...

The bill stops short of providing a separate pathway to citizenship..... Kyl and Hutchison said, however, that they have been working on the bill for about one year, well before the contours of the election took shape in full.To be eligible for legal status under the ACHIEVE Act, an applicant must have lived in the...

    Kyl suggests Benghazi 'cover-up' Sen. Jon Kyl, (R-Ariz.) suggests the Obama administration orchestrated a "cover-up" of the events that led to the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead. "There are three questions that have to be answered," Kyl said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," appearing on a panel with three other retiring senators. "Why weren't the warnings about the need for security heeded? Why weren't the requests for help during the ted attack answered and why did the administration think...

    Richard Carmona, the Democratic candidate for the Arizona senate seat being vacated by Jon Kyl, is a former U.S. surgeon general and decorated military veteran. A Hispanic American, he overcame childhood homelessness and has deep roots in the Tucson area, where he served as a deputy sheriff for more than two decades. Barack Obama himself called Carmona to urge him to run, knowing the Spanish-speaking doctor is the kind of blue-chip candidate capable of wresting away a Senate seat in a red state. And Carmona seems poised to do just that. The past two polls in Arizona have shown Carmona...

    PHOENIX—Arizona's two U.S. senators said Thursday they are concerned about reports of a large number of sex-crime investigations being botched by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office during a three-year period ending in 2007. Sens. John McCain and Jon Kyl issued a written statement involving the reopening of 432 sex-crime cases -- including dozens of alleged child molestations -- after the sheriff's office learned the cases hadn't been investigated adequately or weren't examined at all. "Victims of abuse not only deserve the respect of law enforcement, but their rights must also be protected throughout the criminal justice process," the statement...

    Dear Chairman Bernanke, It is our understanding that the Board Members of the Federal Reserve will meet later this week to consider additional monetary stimulus proposals. We write to express our reservations about any such measures. Respectfully, we submit that the board should resist further extraordinary intervention in the U.S. economy, particularly without a clear articulation of the goals of such a policy, direction for success, ample data proving a case for economic action and quantifiable benefits to the American people. It is not clear that the recent round of quantitative easing undertaken by the Federal Reserve has facilitated economic...
