McCain demonstrated his cut n’ run philosophy again by abandoning his support for his party and his Arizona constituents. We see this every 6 years after the election. The man with a national reputation for his uncontrollable temper and rough language has used a temporal excuse to abandon ship. No one condones, in fact everyone condemns Trumps 11 year old language. But unlike the rest of us, McCain demonstrated he has no compassion or forgiveness for us. In fact, given…Continue

RLUIPA (Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act) was passed in 2000 as a federal land use legislation to control local zoning regulations to protect religious organizations and institutions from discriminatory local zoning ordinances. This law has been abused numerous times under the Obama DOJ to force local communities, including their residential areas, to rezone and fund mosques and Islamic schools with some communities even donating the property. Leo…Continue

The old guard media has tried so hard to maintain its monopoly and control of information that it has prostrated itself on behalf of the Democrat Party, Barak Obama and now Hillary Clinton. The unsurpassed degree of covering up for this President, his administration and Hillary is now a national security threat.

After Congresses’ vote to override Obama and allow U.S. Citizens to sue for damages caused by terrorists, Obama declared that actions encouraging foreign countries to sue the USA set a bad precedent. That is exactly the precedent he set when he started making the $33b in cash payments to Iran for a law suit they did not win. Iran had been unable to prove their case for 35 years and had not won. Our country and citizens have greater claims against Iran for the…Continue

Prop 123 demands that all the money raised will be “appropriated for basic state aid.” That’s a euphemism for the “general fund.” We went down this road before with Brewer’s 1% sales tax. We were told that it was dedicated for education and public safety. However those taxes also went to the general fund and, since money is fungible, we could not find out how many, if any, of those “dedicated” tax dollars went for education or public safety.
There is not one provision in Prop 123 that…Continue

The Mesa Tribune has a section for readers to submit short pieces called the Vent. I know time is short but if enough people submit pieces to let parents know they can opt out if they want, the paper may pay attention, and publish them to inform parents. Here is what I submitted to the Tribune:
Parents should know that their children do not have to take the personally intrusive AzMERIT “exams”. The exams will begin on Monday April 13th and are estimated to take 10…Continue

MESA’s REPUBLIC FACT CHECK
If we are to rate the Republic article “Mesa Clears Legal Hurdle on Future Light Rail” through the same prism as the Republic does for AZ Fact Check the best we could give it is a “Not Supported Rating.” The article is misleading and factually wrong in several respects.
With regard to the requirement for a public vote, the article reports Superior Court Judge “Udall found no such requirement.” That is not…Continue
