    by John HillStand With ArizonaNot in my state, you don't!After a day of lawlessness, with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens lining up across the nation to apply for Obama's "deferred action" amnesty plan, and with spineless politicians cowering in the shadows, it took an Arizonan to stand up to Obama once again. Obama's old nemesis Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer tonight signed an executive order directing state agencies to deny driver's licenses and other public benefits to young illegal immigrants who obtain work authorizations under a new Obama administration program.Brewer's order issued Wednesday says she's reaffirming the intent of current Arizona law...

    By John HillStand With Arizona Obama's lawless bypass of Congress in granting blanket amnesty to millions of illegal aliens began this morning across America. Tens of thousands of illegals lined up early, and flooded into DHS centers to apply for nearly automatic 2-year stays from deportation and work permits, with far looser provisions and requirements than were ever imagined in any version of the 3-times defeated 'Dream Act' in Congress. Thanks to Obama's decree on June 15th, blanket amnesty for illegal aliens under 30 begins today as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) begins accepting applications for “deferred action” and...

    FORT HUACHUCA — Wrapping up their 4-day pre-season camp on Sunday afternoon, the Arizona Wildcat football team turned to members of America’s armed forces to help them better understand what it means to work as a team. And with the Wildcats taking the field on Sept. 1, the dozen or so soldiers tasked with training the young athletes pulled no punches, opting instead to call on one of the Army’s greatest team-building weapons; the Fort Huachuca Leadership Reaction Course. “It’s a lot of fun getting work done, getting better, and becoming a family,” said inside linebacker Cody Ippolito. “All these...

    by John HillStand With ArizonaHe's known as "America's Toughest Sheriff". But Joe Arpaio continues to show he deserves the moniker of "America's JOBS Sheriff". Because every time Sheriff Joe conducts a raid, he frees up jobs for legal American workers. Yesterday was no exception, as Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies raided the large General Nutrition Corporation (GNC) distribution warehouse in Phoenix. GNC is the dominant retailer of nutritional supplements in the U.S., with stores across the country. MCSO's Jeff Sprong says the vitamin distribution business employed as many as 21 suspects using false identifications to secure employment. Two suspects were using social security numbers belonging to...

    PHOENIX -- Maricopa County sheriff's detectives have submitted charges against a former inmate for false reporting to law enforcement officers. The charges stem from reports that Kolton Clark, 18, had been assaulted by detention officers while incarcerated in the Fourth Avenue Jail in downtown Phoenix. Clark was taken into custody in July on two counts of misdemeanor assault then released on a $200 bond shortly after being questioned. Detectives began an investigation after receiving information that Clark's family was concerned that he had been beaten, tased and Maced by detention officers while inside an isolation safe cell at the jail....

    Recognizing that prior to "viability" a fetus experiences pain during an abortion, and that the Arizona statute does not prohibit abortions necessary for the health of pregnant women, the court rejected a challenge to the law.By Order released on July 30th, Federal District Judge James A. Teilborg declined to hold an Arizona statute limiting abortions during and following the twentieth week of pregnancy unconstitutional. State restrictions such as those imposed by Arizona, but after the beginning of the twenty-fourth week of pregnancy, had been said to be permissible in Roe v. Wade almost forty years ago. Although I consider the...

    In the wake of the recent memo from the Obama administration which announced “prosecutorial discretion” in dealing with illegal aliens, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents across the country have been speaking out what many of them are calling a “backdoor amnesty.” On Wednesday, ICE Union president Chris Crane told PRNewswire:“Any American concerned about immigration needs to brace themselves for what's coming. This is just one of many new ICE policies in queue aimed at stopping the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws in the United States. Unable to pass its immigration agenda through legislation, the Administration is now implementing it through...

    PHOENIX, July 26 (Reuters) - A deputy from a controversial Arizona sheriff's office countered a ccusations of racial profiling on Thursday, telling a court that he had risked his life to rescue a Latino illegal immigrant from armed kidnappers. Carlos Rangel told a civil trial alleging Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio that, at the behest of federal immigration police, he went undercover to play the role of the immigrant's relative to meet kidnappers, one of whom pointed a gun at him. The kidnappers were arrested and the immigrant was released. Asked by defense lawyer Tom Liddy, Rangel if he was...

    Arizona is fighting against a two-front assault. The first is of no surprise: trying to secure the state's border against illegal immigrants. The second one, related to the first, has President Obama and his administration using their powers to intimidate and bully the state. Under this administration, the federal government has not stepped up to the plate to help enforce the Supreme Court decision upholding the heart of S.B. 1070 and allowing law enforcement to ask for ID to determine who is and is not legally here after stopping someone for a violation. Instead, the president is using his powers...

    Sen. John McCain has informed Rep. David Schweikert that he will endorse Rep. Ben Quayle in their Member-versus-Member Republican primary in Arizona, according to a Schweikert source. Schweikert did not seek McCain’s endorsement. Those in the Schweikert camp are under the impression that Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl (R) helped facilitate the endorsement. The Hotline first reported the news. “He had the screws put to him hard by Kyl to do it,” the source said. Rumblings about a McCain endorsement have been making the rounds in Arizona Republican circles for the past month or so. Quayle already has Kyl’s endorsement and...

    ZTE USA, a U.S. subsidiary of the Chinese telecom firm, ZTE, has allegedly sold banned U.S. surveillance equipment to Iran, essentially bypassing current U.S. trade restrictions and embargoes imposed on Iran. ZTE USA reaped substantial profits from the stimulus funds. In January of 2010, US regional operator, Commnet Wireless contracted with ZTE USA to build broadband infrastructure network covering parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. And, at the time, ZTE USA and the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority were reportedly in discussions for additional US Broadband Stimulus funding from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. And, indeed, the National Telecommunications...

    A taxpayer-funded study released this week declares that Muslim terrorists are generally misunderstood, don’t want to force their religion on the world and only kill people to protect themselves from victimization by enemies of Islam. A 14-page document, titled, “How Islamist Extremists Quote the Quran,” explains the study’s analysis of 2,000 instances of propaganda from al-Qaida and other Islamic extremist groups from 1998 to 2011: We conclude that verses extremists cite from the Qur’an do not suggest an offensive foe seeking domination and conquest of unbelievers, as is commonly assumed. Instead they deal with themes of victimization, dishonor, and retribution....

    A live cat was found half-buried in concrete in Arizona, an act that the man who rescued it believes to be a threatening message from a pro-polygamy religious group, according to local reports. The kitten was found encased in solid concrete inside a metal tube in Colorado City, Ariz., a major center for the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, a breakaway Mormon sect whose members practice polygamy. In previous incidents, dead cats have been left on ex-FLDS member Isaac Wyler’s property, according to Andrew Chatwin, who discovered the trapped feline while he was building a horse...
