Clair VAN Steenwyk grew up in Bellflower, CA. in a Loving Christian Home, attending Church and Sunday School. His Father taught his children responsibility, which led to Van starting his own businesses, while managing others. Van's been active in politics since the Re-Election Campaign of President Eisenhower in 1956, at age 9. Jean and Van founded & operated a Christian Outreach on L.A.’s skid row, Hollywood Blvd., Village in Mexico, and a Christian Halfway & Coffee House in Bellflower, Ca., from the mid 70's to the early 90’s, where they gave aid and advice to any who dropped in.
Van's Retired a Successful Businessman / Entrepreneur, working in the Food Industry from 1970 until he retired as an Executive in 2001, during this time Van also privately built a Property Management Co., Distribution & Marketing Co., and a Consulting Firm, and in 1998 built a Store Front Antique Business and an Online Antique Business as well, and in 2004 built a Communications Company, where Van’s radio career began in L.A. hosting “Crossroads with Van,” Political Talk, which ended in Phoenix. 10 yrs. later from AM Radio, and continues Internet Broadcasting. His expertise was interviewing politicians / candidates on Issues, Policies, with their Records vs. Rhetoric.
Van's been asked to run for office since the 80’s, however believed his Businesses Development, Christian Outreach—plus political activism were “enough.” Since moving to AZ Jean and Van served as PCs (Precinct Committeemen), State Committeemen and Delegates to State Conventions. They’ve also Hosted Candidate Forums, Rallies at the Capitol including a Pro 2nd Amendment Rally, Fundraiser 4 Vets and other Political Events using his Radio Show as the launching pad.
Van was challenged by listeners and some Tea Party members in 2012 to come out from behind the Microphone and run against Sen. Flake, Van & Jean listened to the requests, discussed and prayed about it, and then decided to run as a Christian Constitutional Activist Republican, knowing compromising the Constitution and Freedoms isn’t acceptable and must be exposed and stopped by the Career Politicians, Bureaucrats, Party Elites and Lobbyists who run most of our government.
Van though unsuccessful believes they brought up issues exposing the Records vs. Rhetoric of most politicians, and believes this will help others to run exposing how corrupt the system is, but also believes the system can still be fixed by Citizens willing to take the Heat. We don’ need compromising career politicians who surrender to the GOP Purple Establishment—you must never negotiate Our God Granted Rights away, nor limit them! Our Founders very clearly stated to give up a little Freedom for Security will soon leave you with Neither.
God Bless You All; Clair Van Steenwyk

Red Skeleton's Pledge of Allegiance;https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZBTyTWOZCM,
America's Creed, Is It Yours?
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people; whose powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in the republic, a sovereign Nation of many States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my Duty to my Country to Love it, to Support its' Constitution, to Obey its' Laws, to respect its' Flag and to Defend it against All enemies. –Written 1917. Accepted by the United States House of Representatives on April 3,1918.
