  • As Criminal Scandals Implicating McCain Unfold, ‘Declining’ Health Has Become

    As Criminal Scandals Implicating McCain Unfold, ‘Declining’ Health Has Become an Off-Broadway Production It’s uncanny how Sen. John McCain’s health declines every time the walls are closing in on the scandals he is implicated in. It’s almost like a script of a play or a canceled TV pilot. Today, as McCain’s name has surfaced in more anti-Trump scandals, he showed up to the Senate in a wheelchair. Perhaps he actually needs the chair. But ask any true conservative about it and they will surely snicker. Is McCain a faker? Who would allege he is faking brain cancer? No one is...

    Combine a hitman, a suspicious federal agent, a world-famous graphic novelist and a daredevil journalist and you get a Molotov cocktail of mishaps in Phoenix native and former truck driver Jeffrey Yochim’s pulp thriller. Collateral Crimes (West Wave Publishing, $14.99) chronicles the adventures of novelist and murder witness Jonathan Starker, who hitches a ride to a comic book convention and finds himself on the run from an ATF agent and a ruthless hitman. The story, a slow burner at the start but fast-paced enough to keep readers flipping pages – think murder, truck hijackings and pesky witnesses – grows more...

  • Pay Attention to the Arizona Governor’s Race

    With all due respect to Senator Jeff Flake’s recent surrender to prevailing populist political winds, and the reasonable assumption that Senator John McCain would face stiff headwinds if he was up for reelection this year, Republican Governor Doug Ducey also has big problems on the horizon as he seeks reelection in 2018. Sure, conventional wisdom could lead one to believe a Koch Brothers’ favorite with all the trappings and advantages of power (including millions of dollars in expected fundraising and independent expenditures) could not be defeated in the historically red state of Arizona. However, like the 2016 election, the 2018...

    PHOENIX - One of Bill Gates' investment firms has spent $80 million to kickstart the development of a brand-new community in the far West Valley. The large plot of land is about 45 minutes west of downtown Phoenix off I-10 near Tonopah. The proposed community, made up of close to 25,000 acres of land, is called Belmont. According to Belmont Partners, a real estate investment group based in Arizona, the goal is to turn the land into its own "smart city."

    Last Monday the Mohave County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to honor Oregon Standoff protest spokesman Robert "LaVoy" Finicum by renaming a portion of road. The two-mile stretch of Yellowstone Road will now be called LaVoy Finicum Road. Supporters of the name change said that LaVoy "had the courage to stand up for what he believed" as reported by "OregonLive" which also reported that those opposed expressed the opinion "he went about it the wrong way". Finicum was shot and killed during a "felony traffic stop" operation run by the FBI and supported by state and local police along US...

    Two senior Republican U.S. senators criticized Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Sunday for saying that Russia may have the "right approach" on Syria and for what they called his lack of focus on Afghanistan and Pakistan. "His statements about Syria really disturb me. No, (Russian President Vladimir) Putin does not have it right when it comes to Syria," Senator Lindsey Graham said. In separate television interviews, Graham and Senator John McCain, prominent Republican foreign policy voices, took aim at Tillerson's remarks last week that Russia may have "got the right approach" and the United States the wrong approach to...

    The party’s drift in that direction began years ago, the Arizona senator said, explaining, “We could not be the party of fiscal conservatism when we were ballooning our debt. So we started to wage in the cultural wars, started arguing about flag burning. And we’ve gotten further and further down that road. Donald Trump latched on to that and put it into hyper-drive. Unfortunately, voters have gone along with him.”

    BISBEE — The dining the room at the Copper Queen Hotel is like taking a step into another era. A grand chandelier from the early 1900s hangs in the center of the long, rectangle room and an antique-style phonograph plays old jazz in the background — the effect is transporting visitors back to what the hotel used to be in the beginning of the 20th century. Steven Reed, the general manager of the Copper Queen, said hotel staff wanted to capture the essence of the early 1900s in one dining room experience and restore the art-nouveau atmosphere the Copper Queen...

  • Jeff Flake Retires — Communist Cuba Hardest Hit

    Quite fittingly, in his “retirement” (will not seek re-election) speech this week Sen. Jeff Flake, this relentless champion of the relentlessly Stalinist Castro regime, attacked Communist-fighter Joe McCarthy.“As I contemplate the Trump presidency, I cannot help but think of Joseph Welch,” Flake emoted. “Welch spoke: “Until this moment, Senator (McCarthy), I think I never really gauged your cruelty, or your recklessness… Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?... The moral power of Welch’s words ended McCarthy’s rampage on American values.”Most people forget that, as Ann Coulter patiently explained in her...

    As Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) made his stunning announcement on Tuesday that he will be retiring from the Senate, Jay Heiler, a Treasurer of the Arizona Board of Regents, made it clear that he’s leaning toward running for the soon-to-be-vacant congressional seat and that he recently spoke with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon about jumping into the 2018 midterm election battle. Heiler told FOX Business in an interview that Flake’s resignation has “sped up” his timeline on when he will make his announcement and that he’s likely to run for the seat that fellow Republican Dr. Kelli Ward...

    WASHINGTON -- The GOP senator who wrote a scathing critique of the Trump era and was being targeted in a Bannon-backed primary challenged will retire instead of facing re-election. Ahead of his official announcement that he will serve the rest of his term but not run again, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) told the Arizona Republic that he believes "there may not be a place for a Republican like me in the current Republican climate or the current Republican Party." "This spell will pass, but not by next year," he said of the Trump influence on the party. "Here's the...

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 24, 2017
    Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he's still considering a Senate campaign in Arizona following the decision by incumbent Republican Sen. Jeff Flake not to seek re-election. Arpaio, who in August became the first person pardoned by President Trump after he was convicted of misdemeanor contempt, previously said he was considering a primary challenge against Flake. "It's still out there, I haven't made a decision," he told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday, shortly after Flake's announcement. The former sheriff said he met twice recently with Steve Bannon, the former White House chief strategist who has sought to recruit anti-establishment...

    It’s always in the last place you look, right? For more than a year, the FBI and Department of Justice insisted that they have no documentation from the country’s most famous discussion of grandchildren. On Thursday, the FBI and DoJ notified Judicial Watch that they may have some documentation after all — as much as 30 pages — relating to the Bill Clinton-Loretta Lynch tarmac meeting that immediately preceded the FBI’s decision not to recommend action against Hillary Clinton over the exposure of thousands of classified items udicial Watch was informed yesterday by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) that...

    An Arizona restaurant was forced to close its doors indefinitely this week after a politically charged Facebook post the eatery’s owners wrote prompted mass criticism from social media users. Christopher Smith and Jay Warren, the owners of Cup it Up American Grill in Tucson, posted a statement on the restaurant’s social media page last week with a list of things the two support and resent, including the president kneeling for the anthem and late night hosts, Vice News reported. The post stated: "We believe in and support 100% in the following: OUR President, Always Standing for the National Anthem, repealing...
