    "I am outraged by findings in a new Congressional report that alleges federal agents were instructed to stand aside and do nothing as up to 2,000 weapons were illegally purchased in Arizona and resold. In many cases, the end result appears to have been the arming of violent drug cartels south of the border. "During Operation Fast and Furious in 2010, according to this report, agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms were ordered to simply track these „straw buyer‟ weapons sales but not intervene. Longtime federal agents have now testified before Congress that allowing these weapons to...

    In a weighty case with far-reaching implications, the Supreme Court on Thursday upheld an Arizona law that requires all businesses to check to make sure new workers are in the country legally — and in the process signaled the states can have a greater say on immigration issues. The 5-3 ruling did not directly address a second Arizona law that granted police broader powers to check immigrants' status and set off nationwide protests by immigrant rights groups last year. But the decision does touch on many of the same issues of federal versus state authority, and seemed to show an...

    The Obama Administration is pulling back on border security. According to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the National Guard isn't scheduled to leave the Arizona-Mexico border at the end of June, however, Guard officials are saying they plan to leave the area within days due lack of orders to stay and carry out duties past June 30.

    PHOENIX — The sponsor of laws to broaden the right to carry guns in Arizona lashed out Monday at Gov. Jan Brewer for vetoing them. Sen. Ron Gould, R-Lake Havasu City, said he did not believe the governor's claims that the measures were flawed and had to be rejected. He said she was just “looking for cover,” trying to find any excuse at all to veto them. But the governor said Monday there were legitimate reasons for her actions. She said both were badly crafted. Brewer, however, refused to commit to signing a version of the measures that was clearer....

    In a surprise move, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer bowed to pressure from the MSM and other "Progressives" and vetoed a bill passed by overwhelming majorities in the legislature. The bill would have restored commonsense regulation to out of control gun banning by local and state governments. At present, a local government agency can prevent law abiding citizens from carrying a gun into a government facility by posting a sign declaring that carrying a gun there is prohibited. The new law would have required that such signs have actual measures in place to insure that if law abiding citizens are so...

    This morning Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was whining to Greta Van Susteren that President Obama did not invite her to the immigration talks he is holding at the White House. This occurred on the heals of Brewer’s snub of the Tea Party when she vetoed Arizona’s eligibility bill which many worked so hard to get through the Arizona legislature. The disdain with which Obama is treating the governor is the same disdain the governor is using towards the Tea Party when it comes to the eligibility bill. It is almost as if this is therapy for her. She resents being...

Jan Brewer says that the White House gave her a “snub” by leaving her off the guest list for a meeting about immigration reform. “I wish I would have been invited,” the Republican said Tuesday night on Fox News. “You would have thought one of the governors would have been invited, since we are on the front lines fighting for security there. It was a little bit of a snub, if you will.” More broadly, she said, the meeting illustrated a disconnect between President Barack Obama’s immigration policy goals...

    Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) applauded his state's governor, Jan Brewer (R), Monday for vetoing a controversial "birther" bill. The legislation, the first of its kind in the nation, would have required presidential candidates to prove their citizenship to be included on the state's ballot.  McCain, President Obama's GOP opponent in 2008, tweeted: Proud of @GovBrewer for her veto of the "birther bill" - it was the right decision. The bill stemmed from suspicions of some of Obama's opponents that he is not a natural-born citizen of the United States and is thus ineligible to be commander in chief. McCain's...

    The fact that Brewer didn't clarify her response provides more evidence that there is much more going on, and demonstrates the sad complicity of legislators we trusted to honor the Constitution. If I lived in Arizona I would take a serious look at removing her, and certainly replacing her in the next election. On what grounds? There are two clases of cititzens, natural, and naturalized. The definitions are well understood by all of our senators. Orrin Hatch sponsored an amendment to Article II to allow naturaized citizens to become president.

The move comes as anti-abortion groups across the nation try to seize on gains made by political conservatives during the November elections, seeking enactment of new state laws to further restrict abortions. Under the new Arizona statute, doctors and other medical professionals would face felony charges if they could be shown to have performed abortions for the purposes of helping parents...

O'Donnell tried to pinpoint the hypocrisy of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for criticizing Obama's failure to obtain authorization from Congress for military action in Libya. The liberal MSNBC host referred back to a nonbinding Senate resolution passed unanimously on March 1, calling for the U.N. Security Council to implement a no-fly zone over Libya.

In legal papers filed Wednesday, Brewer said through her attorney that Mexico seeks a voice in the legal dispute over Senate Bill 1070 based on its contention that keeping Arizona out of the immigration business protects “consistent sovereign-to-sovereign relations” between itself and the United States. The legal brief filed by Mexico also says the country has an interest in protecting the estimated 11 million of its...
  • Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer slams 'foreign interference' in immigration lawsuit

    In a new twist in the fight over Arizona’s immigration law, Gov. Jan Brewer (R) on Tuesday asked a federal court to disallow foreign governments from joining the U.S. Justice Department’s suit to overturn the law. The move comes in response to a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling issued Monday allowing nearly a dozen Latin American countries — Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Chile – to submit friend-of-the-court briefs in Justice’s challenge to SB 1070, which Brewer signed into law in April and is considered one of the nation’s toughest immigration-enforcement...

    We criticize MSNBC enough for its naked advocacy on behalf of the Democrats and Barack Obama, so in all fairness, we should note that they do have limits … and Alan Grayson apparently found them. Contessa Brewer engages Grayson on his disgraceful, dishonest “Taliban Dan” smear and — to her credit — refuses to let him off the hook for it. At one point, Grayson accuses Brewer of distracting attention from women’s issues, but Brewer fires back and tells Grayson that he approved the ad and its own off-message smears and out-of-context quotes. If Grayson was serious about the issues,...

    Gov. Brewer screwed the pooch in that last debate she had...no doubt about that. It was a bad performance, but as we all know a good debater does not make a good leader. Bush was alright at debating but not stellar in any way shape or form. When it came to running and protecting this nation however he WAS great. Not perfect but no human being is. The liberals-jumped-all over-the Brewer-debate and highlighted it in multiple blog posts all over the web hoping this would somehow prevent her re-election and the Democrat pool could grow with illegals again swarming throughout...

    Despite her halting debate performance last week, Arizona Republican Governor Jan Brewer now earns 60% of the vote in her bid for reelection, her best showing in the race to date. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Arizona Voters shows Democratic Attorney General Terry Goddard with 38% support. One percent (1%) like some other candidate in the race, and another one percent (1%) are undecided.

    The Obama administration has included the Arizona state immigration law in a report of human rights abuses to the United Nations, that collective negation of humanity and home to the worst human rights abusers in the world. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer struck back Friday, demanding that the reference to Arizona's immigration law be taken out of the State Department's report to the U.N.'s human rights commissioner. Brewer wrote a letter to Hillary Clinton saying that the inclusion of Arizona in the U.N. report was "downright offensive." Brewer said -- and she was right -- that "the idea of our own...

    Immigration takes larger role in races across U.S. Despite being waylaid by the courts, Arizona's immigration law is still growing as a powerful political force, shaping elections across the country and creating a new generation of campaign stars in and out of the state. The law's sponsor has become a sought-after kingmaker in Republican primaries, one of the chief legal advisers is running for statewide office in Kansas, and several Arizona sheriffs backing the law have earned substantial television airtime. Maybe the most obvious example is Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who has used the law to take control of her...
