The swamp in Washington D.C. Has over flowed into Arizona. Claims of the AZGOP being fractured with discontent have been going on for many years. Many Republicans have had enough!

The goals of AZGOP must be led from the living rooms of PCs and State Committeemen not a backroom for establishment elites.

Rockefeller Republican” another label for RINO or Republican In Name Only.

Mitt Romney criticism of President Trump's comments about the Charlottesville fiasco is beyond reprehensible. Romney has always been a “Rockefeller Republican” aka a “RINO (Republican In Name Only).” I voted for Donald J. Trump; because I believe his ‘Ideology and Core Beliefs’ are aligned closely with mine. The Hate Trump media, progressive democrats and RINO political factions will spin anything to vilify Trump. All are aligned with snakes like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake and the flamboyant manipulators, like George Soros, Mark Zuckerberg et;al. And then weasels like Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Susan Collins Chuck make a lot of meaningless noise. Trump called it right when he said, “Where does the removal of historical icons end?” I remember studying history and after the Civil War; I believe President Abraham Lincoln and General Grant held out an Olive Branch to the Confederate States and duly honored the patriotism, bravery and sacrifice of the Confederate Military. Are we expected to Forget and/or Change History? This nonsense would be funny; if it weren’t so:


Keeping Johnathan Lines as Chairman of the Arizona State Republican Party (AZGOP) would be stupid.

LOOK BACK a moment to the past

Has there been anytime in the past when the Elite Establishment did not control and/or exercise undue influence upon the Arizona Republican Party? Tom Morrissey turned down the opportunity after being newly elected AZGOP Chairman to fire all the staff so “they” could replace them with their own people. Apparently that did not happen until Robert Graham was elected Chairman.

Then the AZGOP successfully aided Senator McCain get re-elected in 2016.

New AZGOP elections in January 2017 saw the rise of the Treasurer to be elected by 34 votes as the new AZGOP Chairman Johnathan Lines. That was the final touch of Robert Graham's efforts. Graham had the assistance of Matthew Kenney who purged conservative precinct committeemen to assure Lines getting elected.

NEW ERA of McCain influence – 2017

AZGOP does not exist for John McCain or Jeff Flake or Johnathan Lines or Matthew Kenney or Kory Langhofer (John McCain's lawyer).

The 2015 to 2015 Treasurer Johnathan Lines acting in name only was unaware of legal fees associated with law suits regarding ballot harvesting. There are three reasons to remove Chairman Lines.

  • One; Johnathan Lines lied by saying he would not hire Matthew Kenney. He hired Kenney anyway to be the AZGOP Director in the chairman's absence.

  • Two; Lines went one step beyond and hired Kory Langhofer as AZGOP legal council.

  • Three; Assisted by lawyer Langofer and Kenney, Lines has denied the new AZGOP Secretary Mercer from access of the permanent records.

McCain was in control again and positioned to aid the re-election of another RINO Fake Flake. Kenney and Langhofer were there to maintain a tight grip on the truth.

I agree 100% with La Paz County Chairman Russell Sias comments in the MCRC BRIEFS 8/21/2017 - http://archives.mcrcbriefs.org/ and believe Fake Flake must not be re-elected in 2018. I also support President Trump and Fake Flake is a forever Never Trumper. Replacing Flake would be big step to draining the Washington D.C. Swamp. Russell is correct about the Flake family use of illegal immigrant labor, see attached = “Sen. Flake attachment to foreign workers blinds him” article.


Chairman Jonathan Lines needs to be sent home just like Flake. If you as a Republican or concerned Independent do not have a GOP State Committeeman signing the recall petition for an AZGOP Special Meeting on 9/30/2017, find him or her and request them to sign the petition.

NOTE: I understand Kathie Petsas has scheduled the next AZGOP By-laws committee meeting 9/30/2017.

Matthew Kenney and Jonathan Lines plus other establishment Republicans are calling for unity but keep attacking Republicans who dare speak up, challenge the lack of transparency and disavow the smoke and mirrors of lies and betrayal.

Newly elected in January 2017 Secretary Gabby Saucedo Mercer expressed serious concerns as she asked:

“But how can I do my job, when I don’t even have the lists of the State Committeemen and PCs mailing addresses and emails?”

The reply: “You’d have to speak to the counsel about that.”

Gabby reacted: “Speak to the counsel!!? What has the lawyer got to do with my tasks, according to the bylaws? But your only answer was “Speak to the counsel.”

Does that discussion mean the AZGOP has no intention of allowing Secretary Mercer to mail out an official call to a special meeting?

The AZGOP records do not belong to the Secretary. The permanent records are AZGOP property and belong to all Republicans. Our elected secretary serves as the custodian. AZGOP legal council should be – no must be- directed to return custody from the previous secretary, if that is really where the records are at.

AZGOP: A SAD SITUATION as observed Tom Horn:

On the Day of State Meeting/Election, 28JAN2017 -Rules for the Election.” The rules were accepted that either side for any candidate could access an election’s documentation.

But then – Post-Election: THE BIG CHILL; Simply put, records were not forthcoming.

They would permit Tim Horn and Secretary Mercer to see the election records; BUT would only be allowed two hours. One of the primary things to check in this case type would be signatures on proxies – impossible in two hours! Another problem preventing the establishment of an accurate election is the lack of any paper trail for the actual electronic voting.

If the state committeemen deliver a Call Letter to the secretary, that letter becomes the official business of the party. If the AZGOP refuses to mail that letter. Lines and Kenney will intentionally be in breach of the bylaws!

A June 9, 2017 conversation really bothered Gabby Mercer. It was in answer to a comment. It was right after being reminded that Lines promised many conservatives that he would not hire Matthew Kenney. But not long after, Lines turned around and did it, anyway! We want everyone to understand how much it concerns us that our chairman would say one thing and do another.

But, Matthew Kenney, made a correction! Matthew Kenney said that Lines had nothing to do with the decision to hire him as the AZGOP executive director. Matthew Kenney said It was not his decision. It was the donors” who insisted that Lines hire Matthew Kenney.

Matthew Kenney’s new position as GOP Executive Director has but one goal in mind: Keeping Jeff Flake in the Senate.

Let’s review who Jeff Flake actually is:

Jeff Flake’s refuses endorse or support President Donald Trump; has colluded with liberals on gun control; is a committed amnesty supporter & member of the Gang of Eight. And national polling in April has Flake as least popular Senator. More recent polls indicate only Mitch McConnell and McCain enjoy being less popular than Flake. Yet we should all be glad McCain, Matthew Kenney and McCain's lawyer supports Flake?


Facts are stubborn things. Even the slippery Jeff Flake can’t hide from them. Arizona voters can’t risk returning Jeff Flake to the U.S. Senate. Arizona Republican voters cannot risk the AZGOP remaining under the influence of McCain. AND “McCain no hero”; see attached article.

What do we want? We want Chairman Lines to be removed or recalled. In order to do that all State Committeemen should sign the petition calling for a Special Meeting of the AZGOP. We want an Arizona Republican State Party (AZGOP) to be for the voter, for the precinct committeemen/women and responsible to the State Committeemen.

AZGOP does not exist for John McCain or Jeff Flake or Johnathan Lines or Matthew Kenney or Kory Langhofer (John McCain's lawyer).

I have yet to find a single politician among the Democrats or Republicans that are not supportive of the 5th plank of the Communist Manifesto. Should anyone know of one please let me know. I might wish to support her or him.

I'm just a simple man and I know my limits. The truth shall set us free and we need to shout it from the roof tops. UN agenda 21 goes back to George H. W. Bush the man betrayed this nation along the ruling elite Democrats and Republican. Both parties have supported this new world order garbage. If anyone has the ear of President Trump or someone in the administration please have them contact me. I'm on every donation list they have.

Unless we all believe that there is no cost to replacing Lines & the cabal he runs with, or that you believe that the Republican party is going to pay for the repeal effort against this cabal, we all need to pony up.

The costs are mounting, and Marianne is so far, footing the bill.  We need to help her.  The bill likely is going to be in the neighborhood of $10,000 - which she does not have, nor should be expected to cover.  Marianne has no where near what she needs to cover the cost of renting buildings, doing mailings, hiring security, finding an honest parliamentarian, and all the other expenses that will be involved.  Right now, she is traveling the state on her own dime, and fast running out of dimes.  It is my understanding that she has sacrificed her paying job to a considerable degree in order to accomplish this recall task.

I think there is a good chance to actually throw the cabal out of OUR Republican Party thereby helping Pres. Trump drain the swamp, but we cannot rely on Marianne's pocket book to accomplish this task.  it is not insurmountable, but she cannot do it essentially by herself.

So, if you are serious about draining Arizona's swamp, decide to help Marianne by sending your donations to her at 

Marianne Ferrari
16044 N. 30th Avenue
Phoenix, AZ 85053

Before you decide you can't afford to write her a check, ask yourself if you would rather have the cabal continue to run the party, OUR party, or you would like a do over and get leaders who would lead the party where we want it to go.  Rather than lead us where they want to go.

Drain the swamp


My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
Thomas Jefferson



The best in books to make every conservative start thinking in new ways about America and the world being controlled by the Obama Administrations AND Republicans and Democrats.  Some surprises are in store for those who look!




Suppose the earth and its inhabitants exist in order to identify just what causes mankind continually to suffer so many troublesome problems and afflictions.
