    A new poll shows Kelli Ward, the conservative Pro-Trump challenger surging against Senator Jeff Flake.Senator Flake refused to support Trump for president in 2016, Flake instead voted for independent spoiler Evan McMullin and even signaled tacit support for Tim Kaine as Vice President. Trying to count the ways I hate @timkaine. Drawing a blank. Congrats to a good man and a good friend.— Jeff Flake (@JeffFlake) July 23, 2016Flake spent 2016 openly mocking Trump and encouraging Republicans not to endorse the president. Flake was one of the GOP leaders pushing the amnesty bill in 2013 and Flake had plans to...

  • How Would John McCain’s Replacement Be Chosen?

    heavy.com ^ | Jul 20, 2017
    Senator John McCain has been diagnosed with a particularly aggressive brain cancer called a glioblastoma. If he does retire, how would his replacement be chosen? In Arizona, where McCain is Senator, vacancies are filled by governor appointment rather than a special election. This means that Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, would choose McCain’s replacement. Ducey is up for re-election himself in 2018, so it’s likely he will be very cautious about who he picks. Many are suggesting that Kelli Ward would be the safest choice, since she got 39.2 percent in her primary run against McCain. She’s already signed up...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) wants to get back to Washington and is acting like his old self again after surgery. "He sounded like a different person. He clearly was a hurting guy," Graham told CNN. "I think they relieved the pressure, and he sounded like the old John McCain, dying to get back and talking about driving across the country. I said, 'No.' "

    The White House has been meeting with prospective opponents of Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) in an apparent effort to put pressure on the senator, who has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump. Flake refused to endorse Trump during the presidential campaign and said he could not attend the GOP convention because he had to "mow his lawn." Now, the Trump administration has had meetings with at least three prospective candidates to run against Flake in the Republican primary, Politico reports. Flake is up for reelection in 2018 and is considered quite vulnerable. Politico reports that Trump has...

    Judicial Watch ^ | July 17, 2017
    Days after Judicial Watch exposed a new policy banning Phoenix police from contacting the feds after arresting illegal aliens, alarming pressure on the city council and chief of police has forced officials in Arizona’s largest city to postpone the order. Crafted at a Hispanic advisory committee that promotes open borders, the policy also prohibits officers from asking about suspects’ immigration status. The new policy’s two principle measures violate key provisions of a state law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court and leave the city vulnerable to costly lawsuits. In the aftermath of Judicial Watch’s story, which included a copy of...

    NEW BRAVOS, TX (WCMH) – An Army veteran in Arizona with a terminal illness has a unique final wish. Lee Hernandez is currently in hospice care in his home. According to the Arizona Republic, he has continuous strokes that affect his vision and cognitive abilities. Doctors can do nothing more for him except make him comfortable. Lee served more than 18 years in the Army, including a tour in Iraq. Earlier this week, he asked his wife to let him hold his phone, “in case someone calls,” according to a post on the Arizona Veterans Forum.
  • Ex-Sheriff Joe Arpaio Asks U.S. Supreme Court to Put His Trial on Hold

    KTAR ^ | JULY 3, 2017
    Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio has made a long-shot request with the U.S. Supreme Court to put on hold his criminal trial that began a week ago and is scheduled for closing arguments on Thursday. His lawyers argued in court papers made available Monday that the trial should be stopped because Arpaio is being denied the right to have a jury decide whether he’s guilty of a contempt-of-court charge. As it now stands, U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton will decide if he’s guilty of the misdemeanor charge for disobeying a 2011 court order to stop his traffic patrols that targeted immigrants....

    By William Lajeunesse Published June 30, 2017 Fox News Now Playing New bills spark debate over the safety of sanctuary cities At the center of national debate, a question remains unanswered: Are sanctuary cities that protect illegal immigrants safer than non-sanctuary cities? Sanctuary supporters claim they are. "Police chiefs across the nation believe that enlisting local police to enforce immigration law is a bad idea," California Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon, a Democrat, claimed at a news conference last week. "Having [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] pluck criminals out of jail and send them across the border or wherever...
  • No In-State Tuition for Arizona DREAMers, Court Rules

    An appellate court in Arizona ruled that DREAMers cannot receive in-state tuition. Each state can determine whether it can give these tax-supported benefits, the court held. Under the ruling, illegal immigrants that have Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status may not pay the in-state tuition rate. “The decision is key because in-state tuition is yet another benefit that acts as a magnet for illegal aliens choosing to make the reckless and irresponsible decision to bring their children illegally across our sovereign borders,” Immigration Reform Law Institute’s (IRLI) executive director and general counsel, Dale Wilcox told Breitbart Texas.

Drew, who died in February, received a formal farewell complete with military honors at the chapel of the Southern Arizona Veterans Memorial Cemetery. The Patrol Guard Riders provided an escort through the cemetery to the chapel. Though there was a crowd of 47 people in attendance, not a single one was a blood relative. “Fred didn’t have...

    Phoenix mayor plans to rename a street that is named after Robert E. Lee. Residents do not want to see the name of their street changed. 75 percent of people living on a Phoenix street need to approve of a name change before it's made. But the council will vote on changing that, giving the elected officials the power to make changes without residential approval.

    GOP Rep. Martha McSally (Ariz.) recently voiced concerns about Republicans losing the House to Democrats due to controversy surrounding President Trump's administration, according to a report from Tuscon Weekly. In a private speech to the Arizona Bankers Association last week, McSally fretted that Trump's tweets are creating "distractions" that "it's basically being taken out on me." "Any Republican member of Congress, you are going down with the ship," McSally said, according to the report. "And we're going to hand the gavel to Pelosi in 2018, they only need 23 seats and the path to that gavel being handed over is...
