  • Bill to split 'nutty 9th Circuit' gains momentum

    As judges on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals weigh the legality of President Trump’s immigration executive order, a Republican push to split up the controversial court -- and shrink its clout -- is gaining steam on Capitol Hill. Republican Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain of Arizona introduced legislation last month to carve six states out of the San Francisco-based court circuit and create a brand new 12th Circuit. They argue that the 9th is too big, too liberal and too slow resolving cases. If they succeed, only California, Oregon, Hawaii and two island districts would remain in the...

    Unless he encounters substantial opposition, that is. Mr. Trump may have both houses of Congress under GOP control, but it’s a narrow 52-to-48 majority in the Senate -- meaning even just a few rogue GOPers could keep Trump-led legislation from passing. . . . Here are some of the people in the Republican Party who could throw a wrench in Mr. Trump’s plans: Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona)

    Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake told reporters that Senate Republicans should take up the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to succeed the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court. Though Flake consistently supports putting Garland’s nomination up for a vote, Thursday he implied Republican nominee Donald Trump was likely to lose the November election. Therefore, the Senate should confirm Garland before Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has the opportunity to nominate a younger, more liberal

    Donald Trump's stunning refusal to say whether he will accept the outcome of the presidential election has created chasms in an already fractured Republican Party. When asked during Wednesday's final presidential debate whether he would accept the results of an election that he has repeatedly claimed is "rigged," Trump replied that he would "keep you in suspense." "I will look at it at the time. I'm not looking at anything now. I'll look at it at the time," Trump told moderator Fox News' Chris Wallace.

    A new Hillary Clinton ad is turning to Republicans to make the case that Donald Trump is unfit for the Oval Office. The ad, titled "Agree," features clips of GOP leaders criticizing the business mogul in interviews and on news programs. Criticisms come from 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney as well as longtime Trump critics such as South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse and Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake. "He's not a serious adult," Sasse says in an interview he gave on MSNBC. The ad closes with the words: "Unfit. Dangerous. Even for Republicans."

Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas) -- in the dust. With surveys putting him ahead in most of the states set to vote in next...

    Authorities are investigating the deaths of 20 dogs at Green Acre Kennel, in Gilbert, Arizona. The place had billed itself as a "Doggie Disneyland" promising plenty of land for dogs to run free with no cages. To Ryan Ingraham and his wife, it sounded like a great place to board their two black Labradors while they took a vacation. Ingraham had contacted MaLeisa and Todd Hughes, owners of the business, two months ago. Then about a week ago, he decided to take the dogs to the Hughes' house for a trial run.

    Life and politics rarely proceed in a straight line. And that goes for the possibility of real immigration reform in a Republican-controlled Senate. The actual numbers of Republican Senators, new and old, who would support real immigration reform, as opposed to a 2015 clone of the Democrats' 2013 effort, is a question mark. There is no doubt that remaining Democrats in the Senate, and there will still be plenty of them, would unite behind a bill like the one passed in 2013, if they got the chance. They would be joined in that effort by the Senate's two "independents," who...

  • Immigration Reform in a Republican-Controlled Senate, Pt. 2

    04/16/2014 2:18:25 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal
    The numbers count of any likely GOP Senate majority in the new Congress suggests that real immigration reform is by no means a forgone conclusion. Indeed, it could be rather iffy. The ratio of Democrats to Republicans is important, as is control of the Senate. And the actual composition of the crucial Senate committees matters as well, and that certainly includes the Senate Judiciary that has primary (but shared) jurisdiction over immigration legislation. As it stands now, of the eight Republican members of the Judiciary Committee, two were original members of the 2013 "Gang of Eight."
  • Taxing problems for supposed conservative Arizona candidate Gary Kiehne

    04/11/2014 5:15:24 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 1 replies
    Gary Kiehne, an honest to goodness ropin’ cowboy from rural Arizona, is running for Congress in Arizona’s First Congressional District. At first glance he appears to be the real deal, but according to Wednesday’s Yellow Sheet (subscription only), Kiehne has a problem or two. It seems Kiehne, a reputed multi-millionaire, has not paid his 2013 property tax on a Casa Grande mobile home. Also, this public document available from the Pinal County Assessor’s office indicates he is claiming more than one primary residence, defined in Arizona as Legal Class 3.

    Dem polls tells us about McCain popularity. Although this article doesn't tell us but Flake is also unpopular as well. Hopefully we will be able to take Flake out in 4 years and MCCain obviously isn't even going to try for reelection.

    The Goths and Later Germanic Invaders Little is known about the early history of the Goths before they came into contact with the Romans. What little evidence we have indicates that they probably came from Scandinavia. In the first millennium B. C., they crossed the Baltic Sea and migrated into Northeastern Europe in the area occupied by Poland today. Later, they moved again and made their home in the area north of the Black Sea. Nobody knows for sure what caused these migrations but they became known as the Wanderings of the Peoples. Anthropologists speculate that changes in climate caused...

    Sen. John McCain blasted the "timidity" of the Obama administration’s sanctions on Russian officials Monday, saying that the White House needs a "fundamental reassessment" of the relationship between the United States and Russian President Vladimir Putin. "This president’s response – I don’t know how it could have been weaker, besides doing nothing," McCain said during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. The Arizona Republican said that Putin is likely "encouraged by the absolute timidity" of the U.S. reaction to Russia's incursion into Crimea. "I don’t know when the president and his advisers are going to wake up to what...

    Senator Jeff Flake | 2/27/14 | Sen Jeff Flake
    Dear Mr: Thank you for contacting me about U.S. policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran. As you probably know, on November 24, 2013, the United States, Iran, and five other world powers agreed to an interim agreement to freeze Iran's nuclear program in return for temporary sanctions relief. This transitory accord will last for six months while a permanent resolution concerning the Iran nuclear issue is created. In response, on December 19, 2013, Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) introduced S. 1881, the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013. This bill would implement new sanctions on Iran in the event...
