- The National Common Core Standards System
This heavily referenced, 48-page document is the result of three months of research effort on the part of members of Arizona's Mommy Lobby, with the help of Emmett McGroarty of the American Principles Project. It has been distributed to Arizona's House and Senate Education Committees, Governor Ducey's office, most of Arizona's leadership, as well as the Arizona State Board of Education. If you have questions about Common Core in Arizona (aka Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards) most of the answers are contained in this document titled the National Common Core Standards System
Chapter headings include: 1) History of Common Core: America and Arizona; 2) The Common Core are Inferior, Defective, and do Not Lead to Readiness for Authentic College Work; 3) High Stakes Testing; 4) Data Collection and Personally Identifiable Information; and 5) Teacher Accountability.Click here to read more

- Alert! Please Help Itasca Small Defeat Bob Worsley for Senate in LD25!
Itasca Small, a long-time supporter and activist for states rights; local control over education and stopping Common Core; and defending our State Superintendent's constitutional powers over education in our state; is running for State Senator against Bob Worsley (R-LD25 Mesa). Ms. Small has spent countless hours at our State Capitol educating our legislators on the proper role of government and on restoring local control over education in our public schools. Please click HERE to see her pledge and HERE to read her background on why she would like to serve her constituents in LD25.Click here to read more
This is our opportunity to rid LD25 of Bob Worsley who has long been a supporter of more federal involvement in our schools and Obamacare, and who continues to fight against all of our efforts to rid our state of Common Core! He does not understand states rights and the importance of pushing back against the continual overreach from the federal government. (See below.)

- Dr. Ben Carson and President Thomas Jefferson call for unity
It is time to unite and elect Donald Trump. Former President of the Arizona Senate, Russell Pearce, recently called for unity. So did Dr. Ben Carson and President Thomas Jefferson.
On March 4, 1801, Thomas Jefferson delivered his First Inaugural Address. Within that Address, he wrote:
“Let us, then, fellow-citizens, unite with one heart and one mind. Let us restore to social intercourse that harmony and affection without which liberty and even life itself are but dreary things. And let us reflect that…we have yet gained little if we countenance a political intolerance as despotic and wicked. But every difference of opinion is not a difference of principle. We have called by different names brethren of the same principle. We are all Republicans, we are all Federalists.”
On May 12, 2016, Dr. Ben Carson wrote an article titled The Cost of Division: Truth and Consequences. Within that article, he wrote:
"As we approach the presidential election of 2016, conservatives need a strong dose of purpose and harmony. We have witnessed the politics of personal destruction at a level even more intense than occurred during the 2012 election cycle. After that failed attempt by conservatives to capture the White House, much post-election analytical activity concluded that the Republican candidates had once again snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by crucifying one another, leaving President Obama with relatively little work to do to win despite his dismal record on the economy and international relationships."
Dr. Carson ends the article with this:
"It is time for us to think about our patriotic ancestors who sacrificed much, in many cases even their lives, to provide opportunities that we now enjoy. It is our turn to be responsible."

- Donald Trump: One-Man-Wrecking Ball Suited for our Times
I didn't vote for Trump. But I agree with former Senate President Russell Pearce, Treasurer Jeff DeWit, conservative activist Sandi Bartlett, and a host of others that we must rally behind Trump as our next President. His detractors say he's flip-flopped on issues. He isn't a "true" conservative. He's uncouth, narcissistic, and unrefined. All of that may be true. They say he's racist. He's sexist. I don't believe that. But why is he so popular with the American people? This article addresses that question, and explores another one: Is it possible, as asked by Australian Pastor Steve Cioccolanti , that the Hand of God is on Donald Trump, "for such a time as this"? If so, it won't be the first time that God has used the most unlikely of men for His Purpose.
As to Donald Trump's popularity, Scott S. Powell believes that Trump possesses "qualities that are among those most vital to rebuilding relations with America’s allies and restoring respect -- even fear -- from adversaries. Mr. Trump’s directness also suggests he is the best-suited presidential candidate to take on America’s insolvency. He could be the president who corrects the nation’s out-of-control spending, deficits and unsustainable debt. Trump’s toughness may be the key virtue needed to rule in a divided country and to successfully downsize and restructure federal agencies and get Washington out of the way of the American economy and its people."
