This thread will be used to provide a history on @katiehobbs, and why it is imperative that the People of Arizona unite against her run for Governor. Arizona needs a leader who will put #ArizonaFirst, not use it as a proxy for the Biden-Culture War
@katiehobbs: A Political History

Hobbs is educated as a social worker. Her career in politics began after joining @EmergeAmerica. Emerge is an org that trains women on how to run for public office, many alums join school boards (imagine that), but Hobbs had grander ambitions.

@katiehobbs 1st move was to run for House. She immediately declared ardent support for unconditional abortion, described her pride over being endorsed by @PPFA, & expressed a desire to implement comprehensive sex education in our schools,

@katiehobbs was elected to the AZ House in 2010, beating fellow Dem Lela Alston by just 718 votes, she'd represent District 15 from 2011-13, & served on the following committees: Government, Health & Human Services, & transportation. Her eyes soon turned to the state Senate.

@katiehobbs ran for senate on this platform: improving AZ schools, creating jobs & equal opportunity for all. During the campaign she savaged Republican tax cuts & accused them of attacking women. She handily beat Augustine Bartning to become senator for District 24.

@katiehobbs was comfortably re-elected to the Senate in 2014 & ran unopposed in 2016. Over three legislations sessions, Hobbs had 10 committee assignments including ELECTIONS & AUDITS through 2013-14. (I guess she didn’t take notes during THOSE sessions)

Hobbs served as Senate minority leader from 2015-19, before declaring a run for SOS. Her platform included this, "our national politics have become dangerously polarized & divisive our state officials should be dedicated to serving the best interests of the people of AZ."

@katiehobbs ran unopposed during the 2018 Democratic primary & defeated Steve Gaynor in the general by just 20,252 votes. Many voters went to sleep that night believing Gaynor had won, & were surprised at this unexpected morning reversal. Sounds almost... Familiar?

On June 2, 2021, @katiehobbs after a divisive tenure as SOS, announced her candidacy for Governor. I believe it is of crucial importance this not be allowed to happen.

Here's why:

For the sake of brevity and to leave room for a sequel! I will outline just 3 instances over the course of @katiehobbs political career that show how politically malleable she is & how at her core she is rabid partisan, who plans a radical agenda for the future of Arizona.

@katiehobbs knows her audience, often contorting politically to what she believes they want to hear. But in heated moments & behind closed doors, the real Hobbs shines through. Indeed, her rhetoric about conservatives & history with BLM prove, she's as hard left as they come

On Nov 8th 2016, Donald Trump was elected president, & @katiehobbs  abandoned any pretense of bipartisanship, & added professional rage tweeter to her resume. She embraced liberal extremism, endorsed BLM, added pronouns to her bio, & called all Republican Nazis.

But @katiehobbs wasn't just supporter of BLM, her campaign was a direct beneficiary of money from them. How much money, you ask?

Just a cool 10,000 from two New York-based activists. Nothing says #ArizonaFirst then taking money from Marxists from the Big Apple.

But @katiehobbs actions often bely that support of Black Lives

In 2015, A Senate aide named Talyona Adams, requested pay & benefits equal to white male counterparts. Hobbs responded by firing her

After legal action, Adams would win back her job & over a million in damages.

A link will be provided later, but this screenshot from @Trumper2020, is the stories purest distillation.

Ms. Adams wanted Hobbs to be a woman of her word, and honor her expressed commitment to racial "equality"."

@katiehobbs simply called the request "inappropriate."

Time for sources!

@katiehobbs will try to mask this part of her. She wants to rebrand as a uniter, not a divider. Hobbs claims she'll represent all of AZ, not just the fringe. Would you like to see how easily led she thinks we are? Look, what she did to her Twitter bio the day she announced.

I cover this in other threads, & won't belabor the point. But there is no greater opponent to election transparency then @katiehobbs. In her role as SOS, Hobbs worked alongside @Adrian_Fontes to remove safeguards from our voting process, inviting fraud.

@merissahamilton often says "Most election fraud happens from voter registration & ballot harvesting." In their capacities as SOS & County Recorder, Hobbs & Fontes (while not solely responsible) ignored addressing these issues helping create the debacle of the 2020 election.

Hobbs had a further hand in destabilizing the 2020 election, when she, @adrian_fontes & @maricopacounty BOS delegated its running to two Dominion contractors in the county employ. These contractors were given sole administrative access to these machines.

Hobbs continues to obscure the nature of this agreement.

Honoring requests from curious voters, @AZSenateGOP ok'd @ArizonaAudit to examine irregularities surrounding the election. @katiehobbs coined the term #Fraudit & verbally attacks both auditors & her constituents.

Further evidence of @katiehobbs radicalism exist in her connection to Democratic money man George Soros. Indeed, Hobbs’ 2018 SOS run, was supported by Soros fronted, the Democracy Alliance, & a Clinton-aligned non-profit, Onward Together.…

What have we learned?

Soros & BLM have financial stake in @katiehobbs. She's pro-abortion, anti-tax cut, against election integrity & transparency. Her partisanship is indulged or ignored by a compliant media.
So what happens when she gets asked questions important to AZ?

On 6/8/21, @azfamily lobbed Hobbs softballs on #BidenBorderCrisis, who struck out looking.
Asked directly, Hobbs refused to call the wave of illegal immigrants entering AZ a crisis & wouldn't commit to call the national guard

Ctsy: @AZBrianAnderson

Hobbs isn't ignorant to the wave of unchecked illegal immigrants coming through our border, nor is she unaware of their recent move to an ICE facility in Scottsdale. But @WhiteHouse is unwilling to act on these issues, & Hobbs, their willing proxy, cannot step on those toes.

The Biden regime is a radically progressive administration that many patriotic American see as illegitimate. The administration has done little to lessen these fears, instead are resistant to transparency & hostile to conservatives across the nation. Remind you of anyone?

@katiehobbs is a classic politician, morally flexible, unwilling to stray from the Biden company line. Hobbs thrives off division, prefers you be scared of your neighbors, wants you on red alert in fear of a "Neo-Nazi" threat. Why? Because scared people are more easily led.

Populist Conservatism is on the rise, the only way to derail it is to stigmatize it & those who support it. Thus, the "insurrection," the "rise of white supremacy." As we speak patriotic Americans are rotting in DC jails. Why? Because they don't think like Hobbs & Biden.

In 2020, a few Democratic Governors willingly led their states into economic ruin to help Biden & destroy "Trumps' Neo-Nazi threat." They welcomed BLM & Antifa into the heart of their cities to loot them dry & burn them down. @katiehobbs is cut from the same cloth.

@katiehobbs will spread fear to best serve progressive policy. She will champion CRT under the pretense of equity, attack the 2A, (Nazis love their guns), remind us the police don't keep us THAT safe, & stand idle as #BidenBorderCrisis pushes deeper into our state.

Arizona needs leadership that charges into the future while embracing its past. A leader that knows the rights & freedoms our ancestors fought for are sacred. That the rule of law must be followed, & there is no shame in living in & loving the best country in the world.

Racism isn't instilled in you from birth, patriotism is. Despite what @katiehobbs says, you're not a nazi, your MAGA neighbor doesn't hate you & it's possible to live amongst people with whom you disagree, knowing these divisions aren't some sign of cultural disrepair.

Arizona's motto is a Latin phrase, Ditat Deus, meaning "God Enriches", it's a lovely sentiment. This country & this state, was founded by people of moral principle & righteous conviction. They knew that with belief & with the freedoms belief instills anything is possible.

Arizona must demand a leader that is unrepentantly & unapologetically #ArizonaFirst. This leader must enforce our borders, endorse American ingenuity & creativity, & encourage the open & unadorned patriotism that emerges from family values & state pride.

I don't know who that leader is, but I am optimistic. Already, promising candidates like @KariLake & @KimberlyYeeAZ are emerging, others will follow. What I DO know is politicians like @katiehobbs are not the answer, they never were & they never will be. Reject her soundly.

This concludes my @katiehobbs thread. Thank you for reading, I hope it was a worthwhile endeavor. If you have comments, corrections, or anything to share, please do so below.

Remember: you live in the best damn country in the world, never apologize for that.

Why does @ArizonaAudit exist? A (hopefully) brief history

A few days after "election day" Biden was declared the first Democrat to win @maricopacounty since Truman

Noting the numerous odd circumstances around the 2020 election, constituents requested an Audit

Here's how people like me attempted to do this. First, we contacted the AZ legislator requesting they call a session to examine these irregularities. We were informed due to "covid reasons" the LEG needed to be called back by @dougducey & @speakerbowers for a special session.

These calls were amplified by Donald Trump himself, & were initially humored by @dougducey (& ignored by @speakerbowers), this continued for weeks until it became clear that Ducey was simply stalling in an effort to avoid having to deal with this issue before certification.

This thread will be used for my musings on how to defeat @katiehobbs and assure she never becomes the governor of Arizona. She will have a sycophantic media on her side, and the support of her party's radicals, but together we, the people can send a message. Image
