- The Aftermath of Charlottesville: What’s Next for Donald Trump?
(The following article was sent to Gilbert Watch and Gila Watch anonymously. It’s a timely, accurate, and thoughtful essay that needs to be read by every American.)
Having failed thus far in their attempt to get us into World War III with Russia over the phony “collusion” charges - hoping to destroy Donald Trump even if it means risking our national survival - the Radical Left and their cohorts in the Democratic Party and the Fake News Media are now moving on to a new, more promising tactic, one with a proven track record of success. It’s called “playing the race card.”
It’s not that they’ve given up on Russia, upon which they had placed such high hopes. It’s just taking longer than anticipated. Unfortunately, they encountered a bit of a problem along the way. It’s called evidence. There isn’t any. The only “collusion” uncovered so far was the DNC rigging the primaries against the hapless Bernie Sanders; and CNN willfully supplying Hillary Clinton with debate questions. But that’s a topic for another day.Click here to read more

- LIVE STREAM: PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HOLDS RALLY IN PHOENIX, AZ 8/22/17
Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN) provided an excellent, truthful video broadcast that began as President Trump supporters started lining up outside the Phoenix Convention Center on August 22, 2017. RSBN's Steve Lookner, Margaret Powell, and Liz Willis interviewed several people who were standing in line, and continued interviewing them inside the Convention Center. They live-streamed prayers and presentations by Dr. Ben Carson, Alveda King, Franklin Graham, and Mike Pence. President Trump is introduced at 5:20:00 to thunderous applause. It finally settled down and his speech began at 5:24:30. He immediately acknowledged "America is a nation of Faith."Click here to read more

- GCRC Chairman Morris's Report on the Trump Rally and the KMOG Forum Radio Show
Gary Morris, Chairman of the Gila County Republican Committee, provided the following "Report on the Trump Rally and the KMOG Forum Radio Show."
I attended President Trump’s Rally in Phoenix last evening (August 22,2017), and here’s a brief report. First, the “fake media” last night and this morning were describing the event as “lightly attended”. When I arrived at the convention center at 4 PM there was a line going two blocks up the street, around the corner and up the street to the next corner, and then turning back two blocks on the next street towards the convention center entrance. The line was three to four persons wide. And I’m sure that line lengthened as more people arrived over the next three hours or so.
By chance, once I arrived in the hall holding the event, I was selected to be on stage directly behind the President (that was sweet). I was assigned to row 6 in the middle. The TV cameras went up to row 4 so I was off screen except for when the camera went wide. As you will note from the photo, the crowd was wall to wall. As people were leaving last night, I paced the floor for dimensions. That hall was about 100 yards by 100 yards! If you remove the vacant space around the podium and off the sides and allow four square feet per person, that comes to nearly 20,000 people!Click here to read more

- Middle School Suicides Double as Common Core Testing Intensifies
Did you happen to see this article by Steven Singer? More importantly, did PARENTS see it? Sure, school is hard. Kids complain. If they really, really complain, parents go to the teachers. Teachers reassure them. Principals and Superintendents reassure them. After all, they're the "experts," not parents. Kids are just "softer" than when we went to school. Right?
Wrong. Something is very, very wrong.
"Here’s a high stakes testing statistic you won’t hear bandied about on the news. The suicide rate among 10- to 14-year-olds doubled between 2007 and 2014 – the same period in which states have increasingly adopted Common Core standards and new, more rigorous high stakes tests. For the first time, suicide surpassed car crashes as a leading cause of death for middle school children. In 2014, the last year for which data was available, 425 middle schoolers nationwide took their own lives."
In April 2017, the Arizona State Board of Education voted to give Arizona schools a grade of A-F, based on student AZMerit test scores. Members of the State Board of Education are "experts," too. Right?
According to Jared Taylor, with his moral compass intact, voted against this travesty. He stated:Click here to read more
