Who Are Citizens?

Illegals Aren’t Citizens!

Let’s clarify the term “Natural Born Citizen!” Framers of the U.S. Constitution knew what they intended when restricting the Office of the Presidency to “Natural Born Citizens,” and why they imposed it. Pretending not to understand the term in order to elect an individual who doesn’t qualify doesn’t change the unconstitutionality of the act. Link:https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/natural_born_citizen

Let’s expose the unconstitutional and unlawful application of the term, “Birthright Citizen” to children born on U.S. soil who are NOT Citizens of the U.S. by birth; AKA: “Anchor Baby.” The terms are erroneously applied in the U.S. to a federal statute derived directly from the 14th Amendment: Immigration and Nationality Act. Chapter 1. Sec. 301. [8 U.S.C. 1401(a)].

The language excludes—as does the 14th Amendment–children born on U.S. soil who aren’t “subject to the jurisdiction thereof, . . ” Meaning a child born to a Foreign National present on U.S. soil isn’t a U.S. Citizen by “Birthright” derived from the location of his birth! This is a deliberate erroneous distortion of the original intent clearly stated first in the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution, which wasn’t applied to ALL children born on U.S. soil until those working to Transform Our Nation and destroy our Constitution did so in the 1950s!

The Constitution isn’t an international document meant to apply to non-citizens, but to citizens only. The many who erroneously claim that the 14th Amendment guarantees citizenship to anyone born on American soil, are wrong; that isn’t the Law, and never has been Law.

Let’s Clarify the so-called “Birthright Citizens,” “Anchor Babies, issue of other children born in the U.S. to visitors holding Visas who are legally in the country, children born to foreign diplomats, heads of state, foreign military prisoners, tourists, etc, are still citizens of the nation of which their parents are citizens.

We have the laws we need and remember one simple thing U. S. Constitution Article 1, Section 8 Clause 4 states: To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization and Uniform Laws etc., what does Uniform mean?

Citizenship was settled from the beginning but our New Socialists need power, using Emotion to change it and of course no matter the subject Immigration, Funding Education etc., they always use the Children.

AZ US Senate Candidate Ward Joins No on NPV

NPV Vilolates U
LD 22 Senate Candidate Clair Van Steenwyk comments on AZ Candidates Opposed to the National Popular Vote: I’ve spoken to and contacted many AZ Candidates about on the issue of the NPV to ask if they Support it or Not, and here’s the latest to respond to our question. We sent this question; The NPV has become quite a hot subject in the last few weeks, and almost daily is being talked about in the Briefs, and so far no one is in favor or supporting or voting for anyone running who voted 4 it, and here’s the response from:
( U.S. Senate Candidate Dr. Kelli Ward: I do not support NPV, not before, not now and will never in the future. Thanks for reaching out! )

We’re glad to hear back from Dr. Ward on her position on the NPV, and also realize this may offend some of her former GOP colleagues in the AZ House who passed it, and it had enough GOP Senate support to pass as well, we hope all who read these comments realizes that the NPV should never be supported or voted 4 by anyone who claims to support the U. S. Constitution as it is in direct violation of Article 2, Section 1 Clause 2 and Article V.

Dr. Ward now joins the others against NPV who’ve spoken to us directly Opposing the NPV; CD 8 Candidate Sandra Dowling, AZ Treasurer Jo Ann Sabbagh, AZ Supt. of Public Instruction Dr. Bob Branch, AZ Corp. Comm. Jim O’Connor, LD 21 Senate Candidate Randy Miller, LD 25 Senate Candidate Itasca Small, I’m certain there are others we just haven’t heard back from them and yes some who voted 4 NPV who now say they’d not do so again, funny how when a little light gets shined on a subject many in office change their minds especially in an election year.

We hope this is helpful to all the Voters in AZ, as you Vote is Your Voice and they need to Hear It in 2018.

Can AZ Really Be Bought by RINOs?

We all had Better Hope & Pray History Doesn’t Repeat Itself!

Comments by LD 22 Senate Candidate Clair Van Steenwyk:

I read the MCC Briefs this morning as usual and couldn’t help but notice once again a personal attack against me endorsing for my opponent in LD 22 Senate Race, so for any who read it here’s the one part I’m referring to at this point.
For those who don’t know or for that matter don’t care what the Definition of Perennial is, I thought it might be a Good time to post it so all can see it’s actually more of a Compliment than I’m certain they’d care to give me, so here’s the Definition or Perennial: lasting or existing for a long or apparently infinite time; enduring or continually recurring.
President Trump “his perennial distrust of the media”
synonyms: abiding, enduring, lasting, everlasting, perpetual, eternal, continuing, unending, unceasing, never-ending, endless, undying, ceaseless, persisting, permanent, constant, continual, unfailing, unchanging, never-changing

The comments of mine along with the definition will hopefully demonstrate that Endorsements must be taken with a Grain of Salt and a rather Large Grain of Salt in this case. It appears to me that the American Post – Gazette prefers someone who Supported & Voted For the National Popular Vote, PROP 123 and Red for Ed over Myself who’d Never Vote 4 the National Popular Vote ,as it violates the Oath of Office taken to Protect and Defend the U.S. Constitution Article 4 Section 4, and the two others mentioned also Violates AZ State Statutes, and believe me there are other Votes and Issues with my Opponent Livingston.
I’ve been receiving several rather large mailers from outside groups endorsing my opponent as well and can’t help but wonder why anyone would spend so much money to get a $24,000 a yr. part time job, I believe it’s due to his taking orders from at least one Lobbyist and will again, so know that’s what they’re trying to protect with all the $$$$$$$’s they’re throwing at US.

I’d like AZ to know I’ll never Vote for anyone who supported or Voted 4 the National Popular Vote or anyone who runs with them or Endorses them in an Election Cycle as when you check some of the Endorsers did support the National Popular Vote, and if it had been law we’d have had Lying Hillary and the U.S. would never have Recovered from two Socialists in a Row in the White House.

This is for All AZ Voters, many in the GOP Legislature Voted 4 the NPV and so check their Records before you Vote 4 them, especially in LD’s 20,21 and 22.

God Bless You All; Clair VAN Steenwyk / Candidate 4 AZ’s LD 22 Senate Seat / www.Vote4Van.com

Does the National Popular Vote Threaten U. S. Republic?

The Definition of a Republic:
A state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch.

Democracy vs. Republic. … In a republic, a constitution or charter of rights protects certain inalienable rights that cannot be taken away by the government, even if it has been elected by a majority of voters. In a “pure democracy,” the majority is not restrained in this way and can impose its will on the minority, which is us.

Popular vs. Electoral Vote: Losing the popular vote means securing less of the national popular vote than the person who received either a majority or a plurality of the vote. … The presidential elections of 1876, 1888, 2000, and 2016 produced an Electoral College winner who did not receive the most votes in the general election.

Many of the AZ’s Republican Legislators voted for the National Popular Vote, this includes my opponent Mr. Livingston in LD 22, who has clearly stated in a conversation at LD 22 on July 16,2018 when asked about my literature for attendees on his support for the National Popular Vote, PROP 123, EPCOR, that if that was all I had to run on no Problem.

His comment about no Problem hopefully will disturb anyone who reads this as it still demonstrates to me his total disregard for the system set up by our Founders to Protect all of us from Majority rule and would take from us the Republican Form of Government we’re guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution, Article 4 Section 4, please keep in mind that if this was Law we’d have had Lying Hillary for our President and if this would have happened what type of Nation would we all be living in today.

My Opponent has proven over the years to listen to a paid Lobbyist rather than the LD 22 PC’s who represent the people and do so freely, this to me along with other legislation are the reasons I’m opposing him in LD 22 Senate Race, and also oppose the re-election or election of any who voted for the National Popular Vote and hope you’ll all check the records of those who voted for it.

The bill was tabled in the Senate by then Sen. Biggs as he knew it would pass, because the following GOP Senators Sponsored the Bill: Prime Signor Shooter, Prime Sponsors; Barto and Dial, Co Sponsors Sylvia Allen, Judy Burgess and Kimberly Yee now running for the AZ State Treasurer, plus other GOP signers total support 20 Sponsors & Votes, enough to pass and override a Veto, which is why it was tabled by Sen. Biggs or the GOP would have passed it, seems Paid Lobbyists have more Loyalty than the US Constitution they took and Oath to or AZ Voters they’re suppose to Serve. .

lawLink;https://apps.azleg.gov/BillStatus/BillOverview?billnumber=SB1218&Sessionid=115 You can’t always trust some who say they’re conservatives, Rep. Livingston Sponsored & voted for the National Popular Vote, so who does he really serve? Livingston also pushed Prop 123, does this make him a Conservatives? My answer is NO…., and the Candidates who supported and voted 4 the National Popular Vote shouldn’t be Re-Elected to any office to give them a 2nd chance at passing this Bad Socialist Bill.

Will AZ Go Blue or Just More Purple in 2018?

AZ Democrats Plan to Win AZ US Senate & CD 8

The Democrats did much better than they ever imagined in the CD 8’s Special Election in April, and will now move forward with a plan to win the AZ US Senate Seat and CD 8 plus some AZ Statewide and LD Seats as well and have an Extra Special Plan to do so.

Here are some numbers from the Special CD 8 Election that show us just how close we came to losing CD 8 to the Democrats in April of 18.
CD 8 comprised of 9 LDs including 1, 4, 13, 15, 20, 21, 22, 29 and 30, and 142 Precincts with 455,066 Registered Voters with an average age of 43.
Results:
Mail in Ballots:

48.5% Cast by Republicans

27.7% Cast by Democrats

23.8% Cast by All Others = 51.5% Demonstrating Republicans needed others to win, and we also lost some Republican Votes to the Democrats and I was told this by some personally while gathering signatures for my LD 22 Senate Race and didn’t sign telling me I’m to Conservative for them.

Voter Turn Out:
40.19% General Election Turnout
25.62% Primary Election Turnout

CD 8 Special General Election Results

Republican D. Lesko 96,012 Votes = 52.4%
Democrat H. Tipirneni 87,331 Votes = 47.6% = 4.8 %,

so 96,012 – 87,331 = 8,681 by 2 = 4,341 votes flipped + 1 we lose, and they plan for a higher turnout due to their Extra Special Issue.

Much smaller margin than Normal so as all can see without the Votes of Non Republicans we would have Lost.

The GOP has a 17.5% Registered Voter Advantage and only won by 4.8%, so a shift of 2.4% and we lose in CD 8 to the Democrats and as we all know you don’t win the State without CD 8, which could very well lead to Our US Senate Seat also going to the Democrats plus other Statewide and Legislative Seats.


Let’s Examine Just Who We Are in CD 8?

LD 22 has more registered voters than 12 of the State’s 15 Counties.

LD 22 also has more Registered Republicans than all AZ Counties, with the exceptions of Maricopa and Pima.
Out of the 30 LDs in AZ: LD 22 is the Third Largest in Voter Population.

LD 22 has the Fourth Largest Republican Voter Total.

Here’s Some Good News for LD 22

LD 22 turned out 15,000 more votes for Lesko than the next closest LD, and if we hadn’t the end result would have been much different.

LD 22 Republicans won by 6,704 votes or a 9.8 point spread, however please keep in mind that LD 22 represents 40% of GOP in CD 8, so still short of projections.

LD 21 Republicans won by 228 votes or a .4 point spread and it represents 30% of the GOP in CD 8, weak performance.

LD 13 Republicans won by 892 or a 1 point spread and they represent 10% of the Republicans in CD 8 weak again.

LD 20 Lost by 948 votes or by a 6.6 point spread, they along with the remaining LDs 1, 4, 15, 29 and 30 represent the remaining 20% of CD 8 Republican Voters.

Here’s the BAD NEWS

6 of LD 22 Precincts went to the Democrats and Lesko’s 2018 Point spread was only 9.8 over the Democrats.

President Trump’s Point Spread in LD 22 over Lying Hillary was 28, so LD 22 Lost 18.2 between 2016 & 2018, and this is a dangerous sign when you factor in the Extra Special Issue the Democrats are going to have to Generate more Votes in the 2018 General, that more than likely will Drive Up Democrat Voter Turnout and even cause some of the Left Wing GOP to vote 4 them.
