The Fate of a Perfectly Good Special Meeting to Remove
As of last Tuesday, August 29th, two hundred sixty-nine courageous conservatives signed our call letter. That number guaranteed that a special meeting would be held, and that Jonathan Lines would have to face a vote by the membership of the state committee, to remove him from office--an enormous victory for conservatives in Arizona! Twenty courageous conservatives all over the state worked for weeks to gather those signatures and organize meetings in their locales. Meanwhile, uncounted others were busy handling the logistics for the meeting, itself.
In one phone call, Jim O'C. destroyed all of that progress by some 300 people, plus the hopes of hundreds more, when he called to let me know he had arranged to have 21 people instruct AZGOP Secretary Gabby Mercer to strike out their signatures, thus disqualifying the entire call letter and six months of meticulous work. The reason Jim gave me was that he “knew” we could not win the vote, and, if we lost, “it will make all of us look bad. We’ll have egg on our faces.”
In my view, that is an unacceptable reason to give up, when just holding the meeting, at all, represented a huge victory. More importantly, Jim had no authority or right to interfere with our initiative. Nor would he have known exactly how many signatures we had gathered, had I not confided in him as a trusted friend. In short, Jim abused, betrayed, and forfeited my respect, my trust, and my friendship.
That’s all that need be said. The last thing I want is for any of us to waste any more time arguing back and forth about who said what, who’s right and who’s wrong. I immediately resigned my membership from AZRA, and that will suffice, for me, personally.
But, because of this very strange ending to my effort to call a special meeting, I have an ominous feeling about where we stand, as a conservative movement. I think large changes are in process that are not good for us, but we are not paying attention. What does systematic purging of conservatives from party positions tell us? It is the story of a complete takeover in progress, right? Should we not feel urgency, knowing that? Should we not be changing our tactics, because of that? I’m beginning to realize that it may have only been a half-measure to try to unseat the chairman, using the bylaws. So, I’m not questioning only you, I’m questioning myself. It took a good number of us 6 months to set up that special meeting. Maybe there is something much larger and more direct that we all should have done together.
I believe the key lies in the truth about the RINOs. They are not Republicans, and everybody knows it, but nobody does anything about it! No one calls them RINOs to their faces. They need to hear that! No one insists that they get out of the party. In fact, they are RUNNING the party. Like dictators. What does that tell us? I say it tells us we have become complacent, even as our situation has worsened. We have accepted the unacceptable. Why? Now, the unacceptable are entrenched and in charge, and we can’t remove them, because some conservatives say it isn’t the right time, even though the RINOs are busy removing us!
Let me repeat myself: Our AZGOP is being occupied by non-republicans who are being funded by huge donors from other states. Given 1st Vice Chair Parallee Schneider’s statement to me, it appears that unelected, unaccountable people, some of them very well paid, are doing the jobs we elected people to do for free. These RINOs in charge are systematically removing conservatives from the PC and SC ranks, if the many, many reports to that effect are to be believed. Some would call that an emergency. If you don’t see it as an emergency, it is incumbent on you, at the very least, to ask yourself why not.
Attacks on Trump are Attacks on the America-First Agenda
We have a President Trump because a massive group of voters voted for him. That was a physical act in support of the Trump agenda. It got Donald Trump into the White House.
That vote was physical proof of the vast power of the people, when they are fully aware of the situation and know the right thing to do. Make no mistake, it was only that vast power that defeated the Democrats. President Trump is right that he is only the messenger. OUR messenger. With OUR message.
Our president is now under siege by the Democrats and the RINO Republicans who cannot be trusted to do one thing right. They've proven that. So what is the difference, then? It's US. If we keep the pressure on the Washington establishment, we can stop a great deal of this constant attack on our president--and our agenda!
This blog is entitled Speak Up Save America, for a reason. Without the vast power of the people behind a change agenda, little will be accomplished, and the bad gujys, eventually, will regain control and get us back on the road to ruin!
The tweet pictured above came out today, and it's good news. This is what I'm talking about when I say "Speak Up, Save America." The people own this country. That's what it says in the Constitution. We are the "kings," but only if we USE our power. There is only one way to do that, and that is to physically SHOW what you want and do not want. A rally is a form of speech. So is a phone call or letter to your legislators.
When any issue arises, you need to speak out immediately, and in more than one way, if possible. We may never know how much fear and intimidation was struck to the hearts of the Democrats and their friends among the RINO Republicans who are still running the Congress. But it was YUGE, believe me! That's what we need to keep going.
Trump had a masterful plan for yesterday, and he accomplished it all.
If you are already feeling saddened or worried by the DC press's constant sniping at Trump, WORRY NO MORE! After you read what he accomplished just today, you'll understand how he is pulling the rug out from under them all, without them even feeling it happening. The entire scenario is changing before our eyes, but with an "up-tempo" gradualness. Which is to say that it may seem slow, but, one day, suddenly, you will realize how amazingly Trump has smoothed the waters, become more popular, gotten whole new categories of constituents on his side. This is his true genius, and it is just exactly what's needed in the country, right now.
Here's a snippet from TheConservativeTreehouse.com the one site that always seems to have better analysis than I can find anywhere else:
Union leadership met today with a pro-jobs, pro-growth, pro-USA president. Leadership from construction/manufacturing, pipe fitters, steel workers and industrial machinist unions met today with President Trump and exit the meeting with incredible praise for the respect he showed them.
The base of President Trump’s support is widening and deepening as rapidly as the base of his initial support was created. The difference between the two groups is the initial base trusted him because of his history on these issues; the second group, the enlarging base, are those who did not believe but are now seeing reality – He’s the real deal.
As he reshapes the political constructs, President Trump is leaving the Democrat party with only the raving moonbats as their constituency – the very far left. Additionally, those within the Republican party who oppose him are similarly revealed as big government, crony capitalistic GOPe types. In essence, President Trump is methodically fracturing the UniParty.
[MF note: "Uniparty" is a term we use to describe the elites who are leading both Democratic and Republican parties. In essence, both parties are paid by lobbyists and others to work as a team, against the best interests of the American people. So, all the "fights" between right and left in Congress are nothing but theatre, for your benefit. It's part of their gambit to keep you worried about how divided our country is. This situation explains why every new "conservative" you vote into the House or Senate immediately starts voting like a RINO, not a conservative.]
