Please Make Phone Calls to Stop Obama's Unconstitutional Amnesty! Don't Stop Making those Phone Calls!

Please call Congress, your Arizona legislators, the Governor, and the Governor-Elect on Friday, November 21 and every day thereafter, until the following message sinks in: 



"The Constitution gives Congress the power of the purse.  I expect the Republicans in Congress to use it and defund anything connected with executive orders Obama issues regarding immigration.  What action will you be taking on this issue?"


Arizona Legislators, Governor Brewer, and Governor-Elect Ducey:


"On Nov. 4, Arizonans approved Prop 122 , an amendment to the Arizona Constitution to reject unconstitutional federal actions.   On Nov. 20, Barack Obama illegally granted amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.  Not only is this an unconstitutional federal action, but it will also cost Arizona citizens incalculable taxpayer dollars. You are the firewall between Arizona citizens and a lording Obama.  What actions do you intend to take?"  


Follows is a list of those you should call.  Be polite and be brief.  You might be talking to a 20- year old intern who will only be answering the phone and keeping track of the calls.

Will Governors Use their Powers to Stop Obama?

The November election favored Republicans for only one reason:  STOP OBAMA!   Governorships were won by Republicans, often in Democratic states, for one reason: STOP OBAMA!  "Governors and state legislatures have the ability to tell Obama and the Feds: not in my backyard"!

Diane Douglas for Superintendent of Public Instruction VICTORY!

Ms. Diane Douglas was recently declared the winner as Arizona's Superintendent of Public Instruction.  As you read her statement below, please be aware that within minutes of these results, a group formed a committee to recall her.  The ugliness of the Left and the statists is in full swing.  They literally despise anyone who stands up for Individual liberties and local control.   (Academic experts with advanced degrees concur with other academic experts with advanced degrees that only academic experts with advanced degrees should control K-12 education.)  You can expect the self-appointed experts, with the trusty aid of the progressive leftist media, to document and repeat/repeat/repeat every Douglas misstep.      

Please read what Ms. Douglas has to say.  She supports Arizona's parents and teachers in ensuring that our children receive the best education possible.

Gruber and the Individual and Employer Mandates

One average American citizen, Rich Weinstein, made a startling discovery.  True investigative reporting is dead among the mainstream media.  So, without a college journalism degree, he did it himself.  He quickly found Jonathan Gruber, the architect of Obamacare.  In Jonathan Gruber, he discovered how the Obama Administration deceived the American public.  

Since then, the conservative media is uncovering more and more evidence by the trainload.  The "mainstream" media continues to ignore Grubergate.  "Not since the Kermit Gosnell late term abortion murder trial has the mainstream press labored so diligently to ignore a hot story." (Have you cancelled your newspaper subscription yet?)

In this article published by Daily Caller by Patrick Howley, we learn that during the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama criticized Hillary Clinton's "mandate."  He ran an ad that stated: ”Hillary Clinton’s attacking, but what’s she not telling you about her health care plan? It forces everyone to buy insurance, even if you can’t afford it, and you pay a penalty if you don’t.”

In his usual bait and switch style, Obama was later "convinced" by Gruber to do exactly that.
