Watching the GOP

We must be ever vigilant on how the GOP officials vote, on how they talk, on what they do and who they support!  And that is all GOP lawmakers across the board!  We already know what the Democrats will do!!

Please post your comments and verifiable information about anything you learn about our lawmakers.  Please include a source so people can do further research.

The Republican Party Platform, 2016

The Conservative side of the ledger needs to aggressively address voter fraud, instill fiscal responsibility and run electable candidates with Constitutional principles.

This page is for informing about what Republicans are doing to advance those principles.

It's time to cut loose such pseudo Conservatives as Karl Rove, Dick Morris and others who are Establishment Republicans more interested in their own power and less interested in America as a Constitutional country and against tea party grassroots values.

Every day, you get calls from dozens on "conservative" organizations wanting your money.  This is the time to be very careful who you donate to.

Do Not Donate to American Crossroads.  Do Not Donate to Mitch McConnel.  Do Not Donate to the Republican National Committee/National Republican Party/Republican National Congressional Committee or Senate Conservative Fund.

Go to Open Secrets to check out any PAC that wants your money BEFORE you donate.

Further Food For Thought: “All Republicans should ask Republican candidates their position on the Republican Party Platform. If you get a ‘deer in the headlights’ stare, you might understand how we can sometimes be so confused by their positions on issues,” quipped LD19 PC Joe Hobbs. “We are trying hard to pay attention to their core values in the debates and there are a number of candidates who seem to be ‘Totally Unaware’ of Republican values. Some of the candidates seem to have dropped out of the sky with big bags of money and have declared themselves Republicans without understanding hardly anything that we can support. Hollow campaign promises will not fool us again. You are RINOs and you are not welcome here. Our Republican Party Platform is the only true definition of what a Republican really is. It was written by grass roots Republican activists from all 50 states PLUS Presidential nominee, Donald Trump. It defines us. It is our benchmark. It defines our DNA. I absolutely will not support any Republican candidate who does not understand and support the Republican Party Platform – all of it! See 2016 GOP Platform

Great new look to this home page for the GOP.  Check it out. Very clever.

Comment by Myrna Lieberman on October 25, 2017 at 4:55pm
Jasper and Pat : I agree with you. McCain and Flake have their own Establishment candidate in the bullpen
Bruce : The last thing I want is a McCain dynasty so a big NO to Megan McCain
Comment by Bruce M Piepho on October 25, 2017 at 2:43pm

Megan McCain for U.S. Senate.

Comment by Clair VAN Steenwyk on October 25, 2017 at 10:55am

We had all better hope this isn't just more GOP Trickery to hand the seat to the Democrat and thereby lose the Senate ending even a possibility of moving forward and even costing Pres. Trump in 2020 as those in Power have no intention of losing it and basically the Two are really One.

We all thank Flake with a sigh of relief. But as to him being courteous, he was running for office!!!  When he wasn't running for office this past 2 years, he sank as low as a rattlesnake slithering around the ground.  He sure slandered our President.

Clair, you talk often about the "better of two evils" but when that is all there is to choose from, there is not choice. Just pick one. Doesn't matter bc there is no such thing as "BETTER of two evils."  Otherwise, you are right on.  The wild card is who McCain is putting in. You know he and his camp were working full time before this announcement to line up someone, just waiting for the right moment of springing them on us. McCain never runs out of hate for our country or state. Flake did not do this without conferring with McCain.

Comment by Clair VAN Steenwyk on October 25, 2017 at 8:48am

I do thank Sen. Flake for making this decision as one who campaigned against him in the 2012 Primary and found Sen. Flake and his wife to be very courteous and thoughtful, never sinking to the politics of the day which meant attacking and slandering others with false or misleading statements and now wish the best for both them and their family.  I believe we're now in for a Battle for the AZ GOP the likes of which we've not seen as the Leadership has something in store for all Truly Committed Constitutional Citizens of AZ. I hope all will not be mislead by the so called experts or fall into the GOP trap of Better of Two Evils or Polling to decide who they Vote 4, check the Records as they do matter which is borne out by events of the Day.  We also no longer have hanging over anyone's head the accusation of Splitting the Vote and handing the office over to Sen. Flake so if you want to run depend on Your Dedication to Freedom not some Poll. Don't be surprised at who some may support in the Primary while attacking others to make them weak should they win the primary to aid the Democrats, as I believe some would rather lose to a Democrat than have a True Freedom Liberty minded Constitutional Republican in office. 
God Bless You All; Clair VAN Steenwyk

Why are you people paying attention to Flake/Fake News networks?

Quit reacting to what THEY say.

Don't let THEM control your discussion.

Comment by Pat J on October 25, 2017 at 8:23am

I mostly agree with you Bruce. I saw that piece on FBiz too and DeWit was being coy until Varney called him on it. I would think he would have a cabinet full of polls. Running an honest poll is a very good idea if there is such a thing. I disagree that there is anyone in either the House or Senate who could compete. The name ID is just not there. One thing is sure: we may have been caught off guard but McCain's group wasn't. I think McCain saw the handwriting on the wall and has a player warming up in the pen. So we may be right where we started. Ward vs McCain's pick.

Comment by Bruce M Piepho on October 25, 2017 at 8:12am

FAKE Flake did AZ a favor with the retirement.  This morning I viewed on FOX Business an interview with Jeff DeWitt.  Jeff mentioned a pole to be taken in the next week should help sort out candidates for replacing the snowflake.  Ward probably has more name recognition at this time.

I have supported Ward as - yes - an endorsement of anybody but FAKE Flake.  I was against De Witt due to his mishandling of the 2016 National Convention delegates at the AZGOP State convention.  I am willing to let the AZ GOP and Independent voters in a poll decide any favorites.  So Myrna, Clair, Jasper and others let us acknowledge the victory for Trump in one more plug pulled to drain the Washington D.C. swamp and say simply say bye bye Flake and OBYW - Thanks for resigning.

It is way too early to jump up and down about any particular candidate or not yet candidate.  A number of good candidates may be waiting to emerge from the U.S. House of Representatives.
