Kyrsten Sinema entered Congress with the 2012 elections as an Arizona Democrat for the new 9th District.

Background

Sinema was born in Tucson, Arizona in 1976 and was raised in the Dobson Ranch area, in a conservative Mormon family.

At age 16, Sinema graduated as her high school’s valedictorian and went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in social work from Brigham Young University.

While advocating for “marginalized and oppressed communities in the state,” she earned her Master’s Degree in Social Work and later went on to graduate Cum Laude with her Juris Doctorate from Arizona State University. In addition, she was hired as an adjunct professor in the School of Social Work at ASU at the age of 26 to teach Master’s level courses in fundraising and political and social policy. Kyrsten Sinema was elected to the House of Representatives in 2004, after nearly a decade of professional practice as a social worker and “social justice” advocate.

Sinema was a social worker from 1995 to 2002; she practiced in the Washington Elementary School District before becoming a criminal defense lawyer in 2005. Sinema has also been an adjunct instructor in the Arizona State University School of Social Work since 2003.
Sinema became a Democratic Arizona legislator in 2005 following a stint, in the early 2000s, as the spokesperson for Ralph Nadar’s Green Party USA.

Influence

Sinema serves on numerous community and national boards, including as Board President of Community Outreach and Advocacy for Refugees, the Center for Progressive Leadership and the Young Elected Officials’ Network. She is the recipient of awards for her political leadership, including the NAACP Civil Rights Award, AZ Hispanic Community Forum Friend of the Year, Planned Parenthood Legislative CHOICE Award, Sierra Club’s Most Valuable Player and the AZ Public Health Association Legislator of the Year.

In 2010, Kyrsten Sinema was serving her second term in the State House, teaching at Arizona State University, practicing criminal defense law while consulting with the state on LGBTQ legislation and initiatives.

Sinema was part of a national team of state elected officials who worked to help craft America’s new health care law to “meet the needs of states, not the federal government.”
Thanks in part to her work in “improving the bill,” Sinema was invited by the President to attend the signing in March of 2010.

Circa 2008, Sinema and three colleagues joined together to form a “Progressive Caucus” for the House of Representatives of the Arizona State Legislature.

In the House of Representatives, Sinema serves on the Committee on Financial Services, which includes the Subcommittee on Housing and Insurance and the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.

In 2010, Kyrsten Sinema served on the Board of Directors of the Progressive States Network, a George Soros funded organization which seeks to “transform the political landscape by sparking progressive actions at the state level.”

Kyrsten Sinema’s first book, “Unite and Conquer: How to Build Coalitions that Win and Last,” was released in July of 2009 by Berrett-Koehler Publishers.

Communist Connections

Endorsing Communist Party Causes

Kyrsten Sinema was a signatory to an advertisement: “May Day and Cinco de Mayo greetings,” placed in the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) paper People’s Weekly World on May 4, 2002. Such ads were traditionally placed in the Communist Party paper every May Day, sponsored by local party clubs, members or supporters:

Arizona’s progressive community extends May Day and Cinco de Mayo greetings to all our friends across the country. We commit ourselves to resist the Bush Administration’s drive for ever increasing military spending and a neverending state of war. We must redouble our efforts to build a people’s coalition that will drive the ultra right out of Congress next November.

Co-signing the advertisement with Sinema were CPUSA members Joe Bernick, Jack Blawis, Lem Harris, Lorenzo Torrez, Anita Torrez, Carolyn Trowbridge, Steve Valencia, the Tucson and East Valley Clubs of the Communist Party USA and the party fronts: the Arizona Peace Council and the Salt of the Earth Labor College.

This support for the communist cause was not a “one off” or an aberration. In 2003, Sinema again put her name to the Arizona Communist Party’s May Day greetings page.

Arizona Together

Shortly after her election in 2004, Kyrsten Sinema and former State Representative Steve May formed Arizona Together, the statewide coalition to defeat Arizona’s same-sex marriage ban, During the course of the two years leading up to the 2006 election, Sinema led the campaign’s effort to “raise nearly $3 million, research, craft and deliver a winning message and build a broad-based, statewide coalition of community leaders, organizations and businesses.”

Arizona made history on Nov. 7, 2006, when its voters became the first in the nation to reject a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. Explained Arizona Communist Party USA leader and Arizona Together activist Joe Bernick:

So how did we do it? The answer is: educating, organizing and mobilizing.

As soon as proponents started circulating petitions to put 107 on the ballot, opponents brought out their own clipboards, signing up thousands of volunteers. Arizona Together emerged as the campaign committee, chaired by progressive state Rep. Kyrsten Sinema.

“Progressive” Connections

Progressive Democrats for America

Kyrsten Sinema is the only state legislator to serve as a board member of the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS)/Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)-dominated Progressive Democrats of America.

Take Back America Conferences

Kyrsten Sinema was on the list of speakers at the 2008 Take Back America conference, which was organized by the IPS and DSA-initiated Campaign for America’s Future.

On March 17, 2008, DSA affiliate Rick Perlstein, State Representative Kyrsten Sinema and Marxist Mike Zielinski spoke in a session entitled: “The Crackup of Conservatism.”

Sinema also addressed the succeeding Campaign for America’s Future organized America’s Future Now conference in 2009.

Foreign Policy/National Security

Anti-Israel Activities

Kyrsten Sinema’s anti-Israel activism began in the early 2000s when she organized for the Arizona Alliance for Peace and Justice, a group whose members have denounced Israel’s “disproportionate” use of “violence and oppression.”

The group also decried U.S. military aid to Israel as well as the expansion of Israeli settlements “into Palestinian lands.”

Sinema later urged supporters of the AAPJ to deluge the phone lines of a radio show hosted by “an unapologetic unconditional supporter of Israeli policy.”

To this day, AAPJ continues to take a hardline stance against Israel, aligning itself with the far left Occupy AIPAC movement and sponsoring various speeches “against the Israeli occupation.”

Another of Sinema’s creations is Local to Global Justice, a grassroots advocacy group that has positioned itself as one of Arizona’s leading critics of the Jewish state.

In February 2004, the group brought the anti-Israel bus tour Wheels of Justice to Tempe – a junket that the Anti-Defamation League described as “distinctly anti-Israel.” The AAPJ co-sponsored the event.

Like the AAPJ, Local to Global Justice has continued to sponsor events singling out Israel for undue criticism. Sinema’s headshot remains displayed on the group’s website.

The organization has advocated in favor of the Palestinian “right of return.”

Sinema formerly served as a spokeswoman for Women in Black, an anti-war group that was founded in part to support Palestinians during the Intifada.

Council for a Livable World Support

Kyrsten Sinema was supported by the far left, anti-U.S. military Council for a Livable World in her successful 2012 Congressional campaign.

According to the Council for a Livable World website:

Outside of state government, Sinema has been a leader in Arizona’s anti-war movement. In the days after the 9/11 attacks, Sinema helped to organize Arizona progressives who were alarmed by widespread calls for invasion. Sinema was at the forefront of Arizona’s grassroots opposition to the war in Iraq.

Sinema’s principled opposition to war extends to the movement for a world free of nuclear weapons. As an Arizona state legislator she actively lobbied Senators John McCain (R) and John Kyl (R) for ratification of the New START nuclear reductions treaty. She supports ratification of the Comprehensive Nuclear Testing Ban and opposes the development of new nuclear weapons.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
