    The House and Senate this week voted overwhelmingly to provide back pay to about 800,000 federal workers who are going without paychecks because of the partial government shutdown. But seven lawmakers — all House Republicans — opposed the measure. Those "no" votes came from Reps. Justin Amash (Mich.), Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Paul Gosar (Ariz.), Glen Grothman (Wis.), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Chip Roy (Texas) and Ted Yoho (Fla.). President Trump on Thursday indicated he would sign the bill, leading to its passage by unanimous consent in the Senate later that day. On Friday, the House cleared the measure in a 411-7...
  • AZ Sheriff: We've Had A Border Crisis Here For The Past 31 Years

    In the urban bastions of liberal America, it’s not an issue. They don’t care about the border. They don’t want border security. All they see when they look at these migrants are votes. They want amnesty. And when people talk about enforcing federal immigration laws or erecting a barrier to secure the border, it must be part of some white nationalist agenda. Protecting one’s border is a national security priority. President Trump promised a border wall and an immigration agenda that actually enforced the laws on the books. The government is shut down over some of the border wall funding....

    RUSH: Okay. So it’s like Groundhog Day. It’s deja vu all over again! The New York Times and the Washington Post with gigantic stories on literally nothing! But headlined to make it look like there’s a new development in the Trump-Russia case, and that is that Trump was actually working and reporting to Russia. There is no evidence in these two stories. There is still no evidence — and they admit it — of any collusion whatsoever. And yet two brand-new and fresh stories about something that I would expect you to be bored silly by now. So the question...

    Newly-elected Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Monday called for conservative Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) to resign from the House because of his remarks questioning whether white supremacy is "offensive." “I think he ought to step aside and I think Congress ought to make it very clear he has no place there,” Romney told CNN’s Manu Raju on Monday. A spokeswoman for Romney confirmed the statement. Romney is the latest high-profile Republican voice to condemn King’s comments made in an interview with The New York Times in which he said, “white nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language...

    Since January 1, neither CNN nor MSNBC has booked a single “Angel Mom” — mothers of children brutally murdered by illegal aliens — as guests on their networks, per an analysis conducted by the Republican National Committee (RNC). The RNC told Breitbart News it has tracked both networks since the beginning of the year as they intensely bash President Donald Trump over the government shutdown that is now the longest ever in the history of the United States. Since the turn of the year to 2019 from 2018, neither network has conducted a single interview with any family members of...

    Howard Buffett, Warren’s oldest son, has become a crusader at the border, using his organizations and wealth to boost security efforts of local authorities and volunteer groups, according to a recent report. While his interest in border security may seem odd, a closer look at the 64-year-old billionaire and philanthropist reveals he’s no stranger to the issue. Buffett owns a ranch in Cochise County, Arizona, that sits just 300 yards from the U.S.-Mexico border. In addition, a report by The Phoenix New Times indicated a close relationship between Buffett and law enforcement, with the former reportedly gifting $30 million to...

    Freshman Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) told CNN Friday that she is willing to vote for “some money for physical barriers,” as the 21st day of the partial government shutdown progressed."How can the White House, Republicans believe you 1,000 percent that you are going to give money on the wall when…Nancy Pelosi herself said no, zero dollars for the wall?" CNN’s Poppy Harlow wondered. “The way they say it is if you re-open, right, how do we know you’re going to give us any of this?”“Do you think Democrats should give any money to the wall?” Harlow asked."I think there is a...

    As the government shutdown drags on, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said enough with the memes, but he gave the Internet endless fodder with his and Nancy Pelosi’s response to President Trump’s border address. There is a crisis at the border, The Washington Post and The New York Times reported on it. Yet, CNN and other trash liberal outlets say otherwise because a) they hate Trump; and b) it would give legitimacy to the president border agenda. The Democrats wanted to respond to the president’s address. And boy, was it something otherworldly. It was immediately mocked on social media and wasn’t persuasive in...

    President Trump said the "real collusion" story was Democrats and cable news pundits accusing him of creating a "manufactured crisis" in his push for a border wall. Trump spoke with Sean Hannity during a trip to McAllen, Texas, where the Fox News host asked the president for his thoughts on the phrase. "I saw on your show actually where you had anchor after anchor using the exact same word. 'It’s manufactured, manufactured,'" Trump said. "Sounds like they’re in collusion," Hannity chimed in. "Yeah, little collusion," Trump said. "That’s the real collusion, OK? That's the real collusion. You take a look...
  • Six GOP Senators Offer to Trade Amnesties for Border Wall plus Cheap Labor

    Breitbart ^ | January 10,2019 | Neil Munro
    Six GOP Senators briefed Jared Kushner and President Donald Trump’s top congressional aide about a plan to swap two amnesties in exchange for border-wall funding. The six GOP Senators included Graham, North Carolina’s Thom Tillis, Tennessee’s Lamar Alexander, Ohio’s Rob Portman, Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski, and Maine’s Susan Collins. The Senators’ draft offer to the Democrats, however, also includes incentives sought by GOP-aligned business groups, such as an expansion of the H-2B blue collar visa-worker program. Few Democrats support the H-2B visa program but its inclusion could encourage GOP legislators to ignore protests from the GOP’s pro-American base. Several GOP Senators...

    After retiring from the U.S. Senate last week, Jeff Flake is still looking for his "next thing." It might just be at CBS News, which has engaged in talks with the Arizona Republican about a role at the network, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Flake, who emerged as one of President Trump's biggest critics and might challenge him for the party nomination in 2020, was spotted at the network's Manhattan headquarters last Friday. Flake could serve in the standard role for ex-politicians, as an on-air contributor, or as something more, according to knowledgable sources.

    As we enter day 18 of the partial government shutdown, President Donald Trump is considering having the U.S. military build his wall if Congress will not give him the money. Arizona Republican Congressman Paul Gosar wants the President to declare the shutdown a national emergency, which would allow him to pursue several options for the wall. "He controls the Army Corps of Engineers," Gosar pointed out, "This is an opportunity to redirect funds from the Army Corps of Engineers to a necessity along the border." That move, Democratic Congressman Ruben Gallego predicted, will likely end up in court. "I think...

    Officials in Scottsdale, Ariz., voted this week to halt work on a mural honoring the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) amid concerns over “protocol” and complaints from neighbors. The “Maverick Mural” was approved by the Scottsdale Development Review Board last month, but city council members voted 5-2 on Tuesday to review that decision, according to the Arizona Republic. City Councilwoman Kathy Littlefield raised concerns that local artist Aaron Bass and architect Tommy Suchart did not go through proper public art processes to get the mural approved, insisting to the paper that her opposition was not political. “I didn't do this...

    For the second time in two years, Los Angeles detectives have found a man dead inside the apartment of Ed Buck, a political activist who rose to national prominence in the late 1980s for his effort to recall the governor of Arizona, the authorities said. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said it received a 911 call shortly after 1 a.m. on Monday from a person who claimed that a man inside a West Hollywood apartment had stopped breathing and could not be resuscitated. When emergency responders arrived at the residence, a second-floor unit on Laurel Avenue, they declared the...

    Phoenix police on Saturday were investigating reports of a sexual assault after a woman who has been hospitalized in a vegetative state for the past decade gave birth. The woman, who was incapacitated in a drowning incident, was a patient at Hacienda Healthcare when she went into labor on Dec. 29 and delivered a baby boy, according to local media. No one knew she was pregnant and healthcare staff were initially unsure why she was moaning, the reports said. "This matter is currently under investigation by the Phoenix Police Department," Sergeant Tommy Thompson told Reuters when asked about the media...

    Utah Policy ^ | Jan 6, 2019 | Written by Bryan Schott, Managing Editor
    Former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, now a Fox News commentator, predicted Sunday the partial government shutdown would continue at least through President Donald Trump's State of the Union address, and Republicans would be seen as the winners. If the current partial shutdown continues through Friday, it would be the longest on the books. Chaffetz, speaking on Fox News Sunday, said he believes the shutdown would still be going on at that point, and would likely not end before President Trump gives his speech on January 29. "I think the next pressure point is the State of the Union at the...

    A woman who has been comatose for at least a decade gave birth in a Phoenix nursing facility Dec. 29, sparking a police investigation into possible sexual abuse. Her caretakers had no idea the woman was pregnant “until she was pretty much giving birth,” a source familiar with the situation told CBS 5. “From what I’ve been told she was moaning. And they didn’t know what was wrong with her,” the source told CBS 5. The baby boy is healthy, but the mother remains in a vegetative state caused by a near-drowning incident years ago. The patient had around the...
