“Going Quartzsite”

24 Jan

A new phrase has been coined by the largest news organization in Arizona. The Arizona Republic reports on website AZCentral.com:  “Cave Creek, Don’t Become The New Quartzsite“. The governing Council of Cave Creek, Arizona is experiencing strong resistance to their leadership. A recall is being organized there against 6 newly elected members.

Quoting the article: The syndrome has a name. Cave Creek, it appears, is going “Quartzsite.” In 2011, the tiny western Arizona town of Quartzsite was convulsed in political in-fighting so chaotic that observers were calling on the governor to send in the state police to restore order.

 

 
 

Quartzsite Represented At Mt. Vernon Assembly

14 Jan

The people of the town of Quartzsite have, through their Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward (District 5), participated in the “Mt. Vernon Assembly”. Its first exploratory meeting was held December 7. It was attended by Senator Ward and Arizona State Representative Kelly Townsend (District 16) at Mt. Vernon.

Article 5 of the U.S. Constitution was the topic of discussion by the “Assembly”. Thirty four States sent representatives. “It is still a surprise to most Americans to learn that our own state legislatures can amend the Constitution without the permission or approval of Congress, the President, or the Supreme Court”*.

Excerpt from Article 5: “ … The Congress …  or … legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments …”

Senator Ward was interviewed on *NATIONAL RADIO yesterday, on the MarkLevinShow.com

Author of best selling books Mark Levin wrote and released in August: “The Liberty Amendments”. It proposes that individual states use Article 5 of the U.S. Constitution to make constitutional amendments by holding a Convention of States.

Jennifer Jones vs Quartzsite Prosecutor David Ward

10 Jan

View Jones Motion to remove Prosecutor Ward

The case is Arizona vs. Jennifer Jones. The Town of Quartzsite is pressing yet another in a string of many unsuccessful criminal cases against Jennifer Jones, local rule of law activist.  In this interesting skirmish in the Town’s own Municipal Court, Jones has called into question the actions of Prosecutor David Ward.

Excerpts:

” … Vindictive and retaliatory conduct by the Town of Quartzsite … As a defendant in CV-2013-2170-NVW, David Ward faces the very real possibility of sustaining a judgment against him personally, including monetary damages, and thus has a conflict of interest as he stands to benefit financially from abusing the judicial process to discredit Jones with a potential criminal conviction, which, if he were to succeed, could be used to influence the jury in his favor at trial. … David Ward filed the criminal charge(s) in the above captioned case without providing Defendant Jones the due process afforded others similarly situated in the community … to allow a defendant the opportunity to remedy the disputed issues … he allowed 113 days to toll before bringing the charge(s) in the above captioned case, and, without due process and … charged Defendant Jones with every subsequent day as a separate offense  “
