TRIGGER-PULLERS

Neither Chris Mathis' previous GOP ties, nor the fact that Colleen Mathis and her spouse once visited the George W. Bush White House and attended the 1988 Republican National Convention, have stopped Tea Baggers and certain politicians from calling for her head.

Keep in mind that not line one has been drawn in the redistricting process. In anticipation of drawing these lines, the AIRC has been holding meetings around the state to take comments from the public.

Clueless Tea Baggers have shown up wondering, "Where are the maps?" This, while ignoring information on the AIRC's website letting folks know that the so-called grid maps are yet to come. The public will get to comment on whatever lines are drawn when the proposed maps are ready.

At a recent AIRC meeting, Kelly Townsend of the Greater Phoenix Tea Party Patriots gave a confusing speech wherein she asked Mathis to step down, as if she was in attendance.

She was not, a fact that was humorously pointed out by Steve Muratore of the Arizona Eagletarian blog. Not all commissioners can go to all the meetings, though usually two or three attend at a time.

Townsend's address drew boos and applause. Initially, it seemed as if she had actually called for the resignation of Vice Chairman Jose Herrera, a Democrat. Only after a couple of reporters asked her about this did Townsend realize how badly she'd bollixed it. She later apologized to Herrera.

One Tea Bagger type referred to the commissioners as "cockroaches" at the same meeting. Others charged that the commission was operating in secret, that it had violated the state procurement code and open-meetings law in picking Strategic Telemetry, and that this "progressive" outfit was data-mining voter-registration information.

Actually, the information that Strategic Telemetry will use to help the commission comes from two sources, the Arizona Secretary of State's Office, and the 2010 census. All public record.

So much for data mining.

Interestingly, Strategic Telemetry has never hidden its work for the 2008 Obama campaign or for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, now an Independent.

What of the commission operating in "secret" and violating the state procurement code?

Well, early on, before the commission had hired its lawyers — one for the Dems and one for the GOPers — lawyers from the Arizona Attorney General's Office advised the commission.

Though the AIRC, does not have to follow the state procurement code, Assistant Attorney General James Barton suggested that the commissioners in their role as "good stewards" follow procurement guidelines nonetheless.

As laid out in the Arizona Revised Statutes, there are certain aspects of the bidding process that are kept confidential.

To discuss such matters, the AIRC had to go into executive session, though the actual voting on bids was done in public. As one of the AIRC's current lawyers explained to me, this was as it should be.

"All of these pre-awarding bid documents are confidential," AIRC attorney Joe Kanefield observed. "So when [the commission] was discussing these bids, they had to [go into executive session] because they were discussing confidential documents."

Since the AIRC voted to award the contract to Strategic Telemetry, all the documents associated with the bids have been placed on the commission's website.

The Democrats and the chairman gave Strategic Telemetry the highest bids, but the Repubs on the commission gave ST relatively high marks, as well, a factoid ignored by the Tea Baggers.

Ultimately, the State Procurement Office, which had been advising the AIRC, delegated its authority to the commission, leading to further charges that the SPO was alleging wrongdoing.

But no wrongdoing is alleged in the SPO's letter to the commission delegating authority. The AIRC's executive director, Ray Bladine, told me that the commissioners wanted to speed up the process and make it more open.

If all this AIRC stuff sounds about as exciting as watching concrete harden, it has led to ominous calls for abolishment of the AIRC (which would have to be done via a statewide ballot). If this happened, the whole process would revert back to our far-right wing, supermajority Republican Legislature.

Some GOPs, such as state Senator Frank Antenori, are ready to go postal on the commission and its chairwoman, telling the Capitol Times' Yellow Sheet, "The gun is loaded, and it's just figuring out what target to point it at and when to pull the trigger."

Metaphorically speaking, I hope — particularly in light of the recent bloodbath in Norway perpetuated by a right-wing loon, not to mention January's Tucson tragedy, in which a federal judge was slain and Congresswoman Giffords almost was.

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne recently announced that his office will be doing a "probe" of the issues surrounding AIRC procurement and open meetings. This, despite the fact that his attorneys — from jump — advised the AIRC on these very issues.

Horne told me that he was responding to the concerns of the public, that his office had researched the matter and concluded it could investigate without running afoul of ethical rules.

Nevertheless, Horne's approach has emboldened the witless Tea Baggers into thinking they're onto something.

And it's just a little too similar to the antics of Horne's erstwhile rival, former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas. Remember, it was Thomas' office that investigated county Supervisors over matters his office had advised them on.

What do you mean tragedy! It was just a birthday present for planet apes president !!! That's all ! Feels great to flip hamburgers and hip hop atop of good news...makes you feel vibrant and energized !!!

ARIZONA = UTOYA = GOVERNMENT‘S "AFTERLIFE" CASH & $$ FLASH MOB (there was no shooting in Utoya or Arizona, but tear gas and theater instead on faces of multiculturalism maniacs..your guilt or blame and shame weapon against us and our families in our own countries atop of forceful unemployment during so called "ECONOMIC CRISES" during which third world foreigners are allowed to rape, kill, and still is nothing else but fast way to early retirements for government related criminals/ terrorists...$$$ extra bonuses, and newly issued state identities while calling you a terrorists) !!! http://stateofterror.blogspot.... or http://stateofterror.wordpress...

OBAMA = STALIN = BUSH or USA = SOVIET UNION http://avsecbostjan.blogspot.c... or http://avsecbostjan.wordpress.... Whitie is fighting war on terrorism just to come home and be pronounced as terrorist...turned in Timothy, jobless, homeless ...YESSS, WE CAN...YESSS, WE CAN...GABBY OPENED HER EYES (Obaminator’s psychotic speech in Tucson = failed “Apocalypse Now“)

WAKE-UP !!! WAKE UP PEOPLE BEFORE IT GETS ALL TO LATE ON PLANET APES !!! TEARS WON'T DO YOU ANY GOOD !!! AS BUSH STATED "THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE PAID FOR"(to die ) !!

EVEN IF IRAQ WOULD HAVE BEEN WAR FOR OIL ONLY, VETERANS WOULDN'T NEVER EVER HAVE TO BE HOMELESS PEOPLE THE WAY THEY ARE AND NOR WOULD OUR PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE ALLOVER THE PLACE THE WAY THEY DO TO VERY TODAY(never ending “war on terror” story). BECAUSE EVEN IF WAR WAS FOR THE SAKE OF MONEY, MONEY SHOULD BE USED FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS AND NOT WHAT THE CASE IS OR AGAINST WHITES(to destroy us allover the world) !!! You don't really proof for 911, just put your sht together in your heads...THIS IS PLENTY ENOUGH TO HAVE O(B)SAMA INDICTED FOR CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST WHITE AMERICAN HUMANITY TOGETHER WITH HIS ZIONIST MASTERS) !!!

Don't worry O(s)bama, you have just saved USA what is lots of Dollars in your DEBT DEALS as those best of America or Navy Seals would also grew older and then you already know how it goes...DEAD & ILL = DEBT DEAL !!!

HOW MUCH FURTHER ARE WE WILLING TO GO IN ORDER TO PLEASE VERY SAME PEOPLE WHO DENY US EVEN THE RIGHT TO EXISTENCE(what is to you country without laws or lawless country in respect to your personal rights, but the one that in contrast to your denied basic human rights recognizes you extremely liable when payments are due) !!?

VOTING POLL:

DO WE NEED MORE PROOFS TO INDICT OBAMA AND BUSH ADMINISTRATION FOR CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY !!?

1)NO, THEY ARE CLEARLY GUILTY AS OIL WAR NEVER EVER WAS REAL ISSUE IN GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITES. REAL ISSUE ARE FACTS OR WHAT WE WITNESS TODAY WHEN VETERANS ARE HOMELESS, JOBLESS, KILLED, ETC.

2)NO, AS 911 ALONE AS WELL AS ACTIONS IMPOSED AGAINST WHITES IN USA (as well worldwide) ARE CLEARLY INDICATING ACTS OF GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY

3)YESS AS JUST YESTERDAY(for over 15 years to very yesterday), WE (news/media = vacuum world of lies) WERE TELLING YOU THAT UNEMPLOYMENT WAS AT 10% WHILE TODAY ONE IS AT 50% (HOW COME NO ONE QUESTION JOURNALISM LIKE THIS OR WHAT IS WORLD OF LIES AND DEMENTIA)!

4)I AGREE WITH FIRST TWO ANSWERS ABOVE. IT IS TIME TO PRESS CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST BOTH ADMINISTRATIONS DUE TO ACTS OF GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY FOR THE SAKE(SAFETY) OF US AND OUR CHILDREN(DO NOT TURN THEM IN WHITE REFUGEES ON PLANET APES OR WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE WHEN VISITING ABOVE PAGES) !!!

The Teabaggers have exploited people's fears during our national debt crisis to gain support and popularity. They are actively busting unions in state after state. They are trying to pass laws turning groups of people they don't like into second class citizens. Sometimes teabaggers outright seek to strip people of their rights. Sound familiar history buffs? That's because the nazi party did the exact same thing.

Fuck the Tea Party. They resemble the dimwitted Republicans us dumbass voters elected and sent to the political offices at all levels.

Their agenda fits the Republicans to a T. I think the Tea Party are RINOs.

I wonder if the Tea Party is helping our now recalled, mentally sick and rather delusional state Senate president, Russell Pearce? If so, they need to quit helping him because he will lose his recall election.

Lemons leaves a lurid taste in every honest person's mouth. He is a true 'liberal' though! He lies, hypocritically calls people names, displays homophobia, and even .

This asshole lies about the relevancy of the fact that Chrissy boy is a die-hard democrat, because the application specifically askes about any "POSSIBLE" conflicts'. The fact that both Colleen and Chris gave money to the Democrap candidate and now State Party chair Cherney's failed Treasurer's campaign and ALSO gave money to the Democrat super-Pac, Arizona List money as well. It is VERY relevant that these Democrats lied, just as this sourpus does. Now the only reason a staunch Republican changes parties, is simply to gain political and professional advantage, (or to marry a Kennedy!)

Also, I know of many corrupt, lying unprincipled types like Chrissy boy who are about as conservative as I am a marxist! Being a lawyer/politico (with few exceptions) places you somewhere between Bernie Madoff and the Unabomber or Ted Bundy. Chrissy boy exemplifies this perfectly. And his wife is no different. They obviously conspired to defraud the whole system, which I believe was the real intent of the Democraps, who while they can't win based on honest debate will attempt to do so by lying and cheating.

Second, this commission has already shown a complete lack of integrity and underhanded dealing in selecting a (DID) Republican lawfirm, in opposition to the the desired choice of the two weak-kneed Republicans. AND they hired the Obamanut firm Strategic Telemetry to do the mapping BEFORE there was even a vote by the Committee! Furthermore there are allegations that they have deliberately destroyed records used in the selection process.

Finally, you are a complete asshole hypocrite, for using a slang for gay sex, as a perjorative (that's 'insult' to you survivors of partial birth abortions!) directed toward people with whom you disagree. Obviously, your mother must have been a serious alcoholic or a crack whore when pregnant with you, since there is no honesty, logic or intelligent analysis to your pathetic 'prose'.

As has been aptly stated by others, you condemn Tea Party Patriots for the very Alinskylike tactics, though no where as evil as your fellow drug-addled idiots who protested a t Columbia University against the Minuteman leaders. among many other attempts to shut up your opponents. Since you can't win in the arena of ideas, like typical statist/socialist/marxists you will 'kill' the voice of any you can't stand having freedom of speech.

There was a time when leftist students would throw blood on speakers they didn't like. When President Bush Jr. was called a murderer. When Dan Rather would end his broadcast with the cryptic message: "Courage". When we were told every night what the Misery Index was. When people would lie down in public places and simulate the casualties of a nuclear exchange with Russia.

Somehow, Stephen, you, and others of your brethren, conveniently forgot those times. Now, if you criticize the President, you are called a racist. If you raise your voice at a public meeting, you are committing a grave error. When you dress up like Washington or Lincoln, you are a buffoon, a rube, or simply a nitwit.

This comment: "They aim to take over or disrupt public meetings" - is so hypocritical it's not even funny, considering the fact that liberals have been doing that since the beginning of time. Did Lemons have a problem with rowdy La Raza-backed students who kept shutting down the school board meetings in Tucson by screaming, chanting and chaining themselves to desks?????? Why of course not.

This blog post is a typical strategy from the liberal smear machine. Call anyone who isn't on the left a "teabagger." That will intimidate people to the point where they're too afraid to exercise their 1st Amendment right and disagree with their government.

I seems that more and more New Times reports turn into incoherent torrents of invective and insult. There are important and serious issues to be explored as well as hypocrisy and deceit to be exposed. The tea party in particular, who fancy themselves as the guardians of the republic, need focused and diligent scrutiny. They have little or no interest in the common good nor welfafe of the enire community, instead focusing on radical and extreme agendas that advance their particularly narrow world view. Reporting like this serves only to trivialize what be one of the most insidious and dangerous threats to America today, the tea party.

I just love main stream writers who simply declare that anyone who doesn't agree with the government crap regarding 9/11 is a conspiracy theorist and all those ideas have been debunked and discredited. So, I guess that's the end of the discussion because good ole Steve said so. No need to say anything else because that's that. You write like a hack, calling people names like a junior high schooler. I apologize to all the junior high schoolers for associating them with your writing disability. Don't they have remedial propaganda courses you can take? Or maybe someone else could take them and explain all the relevant points to you at that local college bar where you bore everyone to tears. Try listing a source for your dull witted rebuttals of anything you say has been proven. You don't because you can't. That, my crude journalistic friend, is the definition of a hack. It's not much fun to be written about like that, is it Steve?

Too funny, the right does what the left has been doing for decades “disruptive loons” and now it’s not OK – hard to make wine from lemons – job well done.

Using your inclination for condescending language, if I’m a tea bagger you and your kind are Turd Taco’s, only appropriate to engage you at your level – think, your site, your rules.

Tea Party VETO POWER, sounds like a conspiracy to me along with they are often armed and that would be “with the truth.”

The fact is Colleen Mathis academic credentials and current employment, as the Government Funding Manager at University Physicians Healthcare, depends on attention to details in reviewing, filing forms and applications and communications. It was no mistake she failed to disclose that which would have disqualified her for serving on the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission board.

Mr. Lemons, please post up Mathis’ application so we can see all her answers, I mean the New Times takes pride in providing resource for review, or is this one on your word?

Tell you what, how about posting up question six and her response for us. Wait I just happen to have it here: #6 “Is there any possible conflict of interest or other matter that would create problems or prevent you from fairly and impartially discharging your duties as an appointee to the Independent Redistricting Commission?” She answered to the negative, no issues exist……. Post it up Lemons!

Mathis’ attorney husband contributed to Andrei Cherney and the Arizona List PAC this last election cycle as well as contributed $500.00 to ubama on 08. He was also Nancy Young Wright’s campaign treasure. No conflict here is there.

What did you call it Lemons, slight error in answering question “eight”, its not about question eight is it?

It wouldn't matter what she or her husband do or have done. You and your whiny little bitches in the tea baggers union would have a problem with him/her for something. You'd find something, because everything is a conspiracy and everyone is trying to take away your freedoms. No matter what, if there's a chance the tea baggers will not get their way, they're going to tell you about it. Again and again and again. see: The "birther" conspiracy as an example. Or even this example is perfect. Not one line has been drawn and there's already a reason to believe someone's out to get you.

I'm glad you brought up the fact that you're only doing what the left has been doing for decades. I agree with you. Tea baggers are the new hippies, only they're fighting so that other people can maintain their wealth, not a noble cause such as ending a misguided war. And while you chided hippies for gathering peacefully in protest, you and your hideous friends show up to voice your "opinions" as forcefully as humanly possible. Stomp a head or two, throw out a racial slur. That's the Tea party's M.O.

"Using your inclination for condescending language"

Can you explain why calling you a tea bagger is condescending? You folks on the right have been constantly telling everyone else how much you hate political correctness. If I remember correctly, I think I've been hearing that diatribe since the 1990s.

You should be honored that we call you what you are, TEA BAGGERS, for the very reason that we choose not to be politically correct. Knowing how much you hate political correctness, it would seem to me that you would be more offended if we called you a tea partier. Why, I repeat, because that would be political correctness on our part, which you hate.

Granted, I have never laughed as hard as when I learned what "tea bagger" meant. Tea bagger is definitely the most appropriate name befitting you SOBs.

So what gives? Either you hate political correctness, or you don't, and judging by how the tea bagger party has comported itself over the last couple of years, you really do hate political correctness. So, quit whimmpering that we are being "condescending," or in other words, that we are not being politically correct.
