Prepare for Rino hunting season Shawnna Bolick, Secretary of State candidate.

Stated at the Navajo County Republican Committee meeting Thursday Night, Jan. 20, when asked about decertification of the 2020 Election, “she commented that they (Arizona State Legislature) can’t do it since it’s not written anywhere and that legislators, who have been going around saying so are lying and doing it just for fundraising”.

It seems Ms. Bolick, current LD20 State Representative, and Candidate for Secretary of State doesen't know the U.S. Constitution.

As stated in Art. I, Sec. 4, Clause 1, U.S. Constitution reads, "The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives shall be prescribed in each State by the legislature."

Nowhere does it preclude state legislators from decertifying an election if found to be fraudulent. Our state legislators have absolute and complete authority and an obligation to do so. I found Representative Bolick and other uneducated representatives who endorsed her as Representative Blackman, is similarly uneducated about our U.S. Constitution.

It’s clear these two state representatives are for go along get along with the Biden administration mantra. They are not in favor of signing impending decertification letters or vote for decertification of the 2020 election.

It was clearly proven on the Nov. 30 Hearing headed by Representative Mark Finchem, where Rudy Giuliani, constitutional attorney, and Jenna Ellis schooled the Arizona Legislature on their constitutional duties under Article 1 section 4 of our U.S. Constitution.

It’s quite clear we have enough willingly uneducated state representatives who refuse to stand for righteousness and our constitution. These state representatives should not be retained to hold office.

Honestly Rino’s are worse than Democrats. Rino’s are wolves in sheep’s clothing. No more Rinos!

Your story doesn't stand up when Trump's very own AG, Justice Department, and even 50+ courts all said that the election was fine. Not one of the 70+ judges who reviewed the lawsuits said that there was any merit. I find it hard to believe that EVERYONE that Trump appointed would look the other way if there was something wrong with the election.

You jumped the shark when you claimed that George Soros was sending bus loads of people to your store. Made absolute fools out of the armed people who chose to wait for them. Made Show Low look like a town full of idiots. Time to retire. If any one were to believe the drivel you spout then they deserve to look like an idiot.

With unfounded beliefs like this it is no wonder that many of us are disgusted with Trump, and the Republican party that has sold its soul while the faithful continue to kiss his feet as you are doing by repeating his lies.

Cut all of those high school classes on government, did we Mr. Slaton?

So what do you think about Mark Finchem voting to get rid of the electoral college?

Please define what a RINO is? Is it anyone who disagrees with you?

If the Navajo county Democrats are looking for a new office the Trump Store is for sale!!

Krizzygirl : It was Walter Blackman who introduce RANK CHOICE VOTING which turned California BLUE, new name for National Popular Vote, as for Rino it means Republicans in Name Only, and they won't stick with true Constitutional conservatism.

“The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators.”

The ‘Constitution Annotated’: The Court has upheld a variety of state laws designed to ensure that elections—including federal elections – are fair and honest and orderly.13 But the Court distinguished state laws that go beyond protection of the integrity and regularity of the election process, and instead operate to disadvantage a particular class of candidates.14 Term limits, viewed as serving the dual purposes of disadvantaging a particular class of candidates and evading the dictates of the Qualifications Clause, crossed this line,15 as did ballot labels identifying candidates who disregarded voters’ instructions on term limits or declined to pledge support for them.16 [T]he Framers understood the Elections Clause as a grant of authority to issue procedural regulations, and not as a source of power to dictate electoral outcomes, to favor or disfavor a class of candidates, or to evade important constitutional restraints.1”

Mr. Slaton is incorrect.

RONZIM, as normal liberals try to distract from the Constitution, which is very clear. Your exercise in gobbledygook doesn’t address the Complete Authority State Legislators have under in Art. I, Sec. 4, Clause 1 .

Bigfoot is also wrong. What I posted were not my own conclusions, but rather, the rulings of the United States Supreme Court regarding limitations on states’ rights in governing their elections. Clearly, Bigfoot is not acquainted with the protocols for research into constitutionality. What is located within the four corners of the constitution constitutes only the basis for research, not any final conclusions. Research regarding constitutionality therefore must start with an examination of current case law, that is to say, the most recent rulings in the matter in hand. Private individuals such as Bigfoot do not get to interpret the meaning of the constitution.

SCOTUS has imposed several restrictions on this article as is true with nearly everything else in the original four corners of the constitution and the Bill of Rights. No constitutional authority is absolute or “complete” to use Bigfoot’s term.

we can all recall that fateful evening in June where mr. slaton and his crew of desciples saved our town from eminent distruction. armed with only their wits, knock off punisher gear, guns, and the inescapable ability to fall for every pearl clutching nonsense post on social media. we the citizens of navajo county owe this man a debt of gratitude for standing up to nonexistent threats. we should convey that honour by totally believing everything he says and not by openly mocking him or laughing at him in public arenas.
