AZ GOP engages in suspicious info harvesting 

An urgent email has been sent out by the state Republican Party. It says, “In reviewing our records, we were made aware your voter profile status has been marked — incomplete.”

If those bold red letters don’t speak of urgency, nothing does. But what’s the emergency?  Since the recipients received the email, the party obviously has the necessary information to make contact — or “reach out” as trendy talking, touchy feely Chairman Jonathan Lines likes to say. They also have access to the voter files that list all of the data they say they need.

Then comes the kicker:

—Complete your voter profile now—

Make sure to fill out this short survey in the next 24 hours to remain active in our system.

That 24-hour deadline is an eyebrow raiser. Being suspicious types, we smell a rat. It has bleach streaked hair, sports an often inappropriate grin, has a propensity for joining up with an octogenarian rodent and a gaggle of RINOs and liberals on amnesty for illegals, besides being a shirtless show boater extraordinaire. Though making news for loudly refusing to vote for Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, it is also running for reelection in 2018.

Yep. The party is readying itself for a Flake blowout and is harvesting for Jeff Flake — who won his first 6-year senate term by a slim 3-points. Flake should be remembered for promoting Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s lame duck nominee for U.S. Supreme Court, saying, “It was time.”  Fortunately, Trump was elected president without Jeff Flake’s vote and appointed conservative Judge Neil Gorsuch to the high court. 

The information gathering goes further with a drop down box asking “What Issue Is Most Important To You?” Recipients are given the option of a single choice. They can chose from  Economic Growth,  Job Creation, Federal Overreach, Gun Rights, Taxes, Government Spending, National Security, Foreign Policy, Social Issues and Pro-Life.  Oddly missing is the issue that was central to the election of President Trump  — illegal immigration.

If you choose to fork over your personal information, there’s a box to check asking the powerful AZ/OZ  behind the curtain to “Subscribe me to the Arizona Republican Party Chairman’s Daily Update.” It’s doubtful they’ll get many takers for the daily dose of self congratulatory bravado, when the widely read MCRC Briefs is actually filled with insider party news and key information for conservative activists.

    SRAZ: You are worth your weight in gold. Thanks for the info.
    I wouldn’t be giving them the time of day, but someone I’m sure will benefit from this smart, snarky in a good way post.

      Thanks for the kudos, Conservative Since Birth. Your comments are always appreciated.

      The AZ Republican Party is not in a good place right now which is regrettable as we head into 2018. When conservative PCs are systematically purged by those elected to represent us, it’s all too clear that the “enemy camp” is within our midst. We’ve got our work cut out for us.

    This sounds more like a threat than a promise of anything worthwhile. I’ve been a precinct and state committeeman for years and can honestly say the quality of leadership has gone down with Robert Graham and now with the foolish antics of Jonathan Lines. Grahams’s handpicked successor. I’ve heard from more than one well placed source that the focus in the upcoming election cycle will be just as you say here in the post, which is getting flaky Jeff Flake reelected.
    That should keep the GOP honchos busy since Republican voters would have to live under a rock not to be aware of Flake’s traitorous hootings about Donald Trump, who carried Arizona and many previously regarded blue states that Hillary was counting on. She lost and so should Flake.

    Please write more about Kelli Ward, who can run circles around Flake in intelligence and in being an actual conservative. Jeff Flake is a Loosertarian who co-opted the Republican brand in order to get elected. He lied about term limiting himself and is all out for gifting amnesty to illegal invaders.

      Here’s some info on Kelli Ward (from MCRC Briefs, above):

      US Senate candidate Kelli Ward, who is challenging incumbent Jeff Flake, will host a dinner and book signing with author and political operative Roger Stone the evening of July 27 in Scottsdale at a yet to be disclosed location for security purposes. Stone’s The Making of the President 2016: How Donald Trump Orchestrated a Revolution was released in January.

    Elected and appointed officials are worse than worthless.
    They are potentially dangerous.

    Just today, this information was disclosed:

    “This past March, the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) reported that a company called JobLink, a database management company, suffered a data breach. The company maintains a web-based system that links job-seekers with employers.”

    “JobLink is utilized by 10 state governments, including the state of Arizona. DES director Henry Darwin said those affected should have been notified by the company. . . ”

    “Any resident who used the Arizona Job Connection website to apply for a job, needs to know what immediate steps they should take to protect themselves. . .”

    Seems like DES Director Darwin is shuffling all the responsibility to JobLink. No mention as to how ADES is taking steps to make sure that this doesn’t happen again.

    Just one more case of ‘nothing to see here, move on. . . ‘

    Check this article out! Andy Biggs on the list!! The craziness continues.

    Republicans receiving this bogus attempt to push them into divulging personal information within a 24 hour window should be flooding the AZ Republican Party headquarters with protesting phone calls. We are not sheeple the party brass can herd like cattle. How dare they think this is acceptable? The number is (602) 957-7770. They rarely answer, but you can leave a message.

    And if the info gathering is to aid Jeff Flake, I’d change my affiliation rather than lift a finger for this pompous ass who thought he could undercut Donald Trump and keep him from the presidency. This really infuriates me!!

    The Arizona Republican Party has never uttered a word in rebuke of flaky Flake or John McCain, who also said he would not vote for Trump. Since Trump won the election, McCain has engaged in open warfare against him, united with the Democrats. Still no word of rebuke from the useless Arizona Republican Party.Apparently Democrats in Republican clothing are good enough for Robert Graham and Jonathan lines.
