    Leaked govt memo: Shooter may be linked to hate groupBy Liz Goodwin 29 mins ago According to a leaked memo obtained by Fox News, the Department of Homeland Security is looking into the possibility that suspected shooter Jared Loughner was linked to a white supremacist group called American Renaissance, or AmRen. AmRen founder Jared Taylor, however, tells Fox he'd never heard of Loughner and that according to his group's records, Loughner never received AmRen publications. His group's events are all held on the East Coast, he said, far from Loughner's hometown of Tucson. According to the memo, Loughner "is possibly...
  • ADOT spends $155M for Phoenix-to-Vegas highway link, but what about Tucson?

    The Arizona Department of Transportation continues to make plans for the fabled Interstate 11, announcing a $155 million investment into the stretch of highway from Phoenix to Las Vegas. The plans, for what is now known as U.S. 93, have been in the making for years, with several more to go. Meanwhile, the nerve-rattling, headache-inducing, traffic-clogged two-lane stretches from Tucson to Phoenix that are much of Interstate 10 aren’t getting much thought. The issue is that touted improvements to U.S. 93 are part of a larger plan to build a dedicated trade corridor between Mexico and Canada, running right through...

    An international team of geoscientists from the United States, Canada and Europe has discovered a large impact crater beneath the Hiawatha Glacier in remote northwest Greenland. A paper on the discovery was published in the journal Science Advances. The Hiawatha impact crater is approximately 19.2 miles (31 km) wide and lies under an ice sheet that is 0.6 miles (1 km) thick.The scientists believe this crater was formed by a 0.6-mile wide iron asteroid that slammed into the Earth at the end of the Pleistocene epoch, perhaps as recently as 12,000 years ago. ..." “Researchers were looking at the map...

    On a bright July day 2 years ago, Kurt Kjær was in a helicopter flying over northwest Greenland—an expanse of ice, sheer white and sparkling. Soon, his target came into view: Hiawatha Glacier, a slow-moving sheet of ice more than a kilometer thick. It advances on the Arctic Ocean not in a straight wall, but in a conspicuous semicircle, as though spilling out of a basin. Kjær, a geologist at the Natural History Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen, suspected the glacier was hiding an explosive secret. The helicopter landed near the surging river that drains the glacier, sweeping out rocks...

    ICE told Arizona Sheriffs it has run out of detention space to handle the number of migrants illegally crossing the border and presenting themselves at ports of entry. This lack of housing and the Flores Settlement’s 20-day release requirement forced ICE to release a large number of “family units" in Arizona all at once. Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot told Fox News, “ICE hasn’t been able to keep up with individuals coming up the border from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, because they’re overwhelmed. They’re releasing them out of the front door of their facilities…Each of our communities are going...

    The University of Arizona has accepted years of funding from a foundation infamous for promoting research linking race and intelligence — even after other universities and organizations, including white nationalist groups, stopped receiving support from the group, records show. A University of Arizona psychology professor used some of the Pioneer Fund’s grant money to pay for recent travel to a conference in London that has included eugenics-themed presentations, according to documents The Associated Press obtained through a public records request. The eugenics movement has included theories about the controlled breeding of humans to “improve” the gene pool. The Pioneer Fund...

    Federal Judge John Roll was killed in Tucson trying to save another man’s life. As soon as madman Jared Lee Loughner finished his attempt to murder Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, he turned his gun on the people to his left, then the people to his right. Recently released video shows his first target to the right was Ron Barber, Gifford’s district director, who was standing next to Justice John Roll. Barber was shot in the arm. Judge Roll then pushed him down and, shielding Barber with his own body, steered him to shelter under a nearby table. While under the table,...

    Jerry and Rita Alter kept to themselves. They were a lovely couple, neighbors in the small New Mexico town of Cliff would later tell reporters. But no one knew much about them. They may have been hiding a decades-old secret, pieces of which are now just emerging. Among them: After the couple died, a stolen Willem de Kooning painting with an estimated worth of $160 million was discovered in their bedroom. More than 30 years ago, that same painting disappeared the day after Thanksgiving from the University of Arizona Museum of Art in Tucson. And Wednesday, the Arizona Republic reported...

    TUCSON, Az. (FOX26 NEWS) — A would-be robber in Arizona was stopped by several restaurant employees and the whole thing was caught on camera. In the video, the crook can be seen standing behind a counter, armed with a knife and demanding money from employees. However, the workers were not amused and one of them decided to take action by throw a chair at the suspect. At least six employees then start attacking the man and subduing him until police arrive.

    SOUTH TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Two people were stabbed while stopping a robbery at a landmark in South Tucson Wednesday afternoon, according to police. The South Tucson Police Department said it happened around 1:30 p.m. at Mi Nidito Restaurant on South 4th Avenue. Officers said Jerry Evans Madril, armed with a knife, entered the restaurant and demanded money. Workers in the store were not intimidated and fought back. "He was outnumbered with the knife," said Manny Olguin, a worker at Mi Nidito. "You could see it was a little box cutter. It wasn't a big machete or nothing."

    (Newsmax) – Last week, Bishop Edward Weisenburger of Tucson called upon his fellow bishops to issue a "prophetic statement" on immigration that would support "canonical penalties for Catholics who are involved" in implementing President Trump's immigration policy. Why would the thought of excommunication even enter the mind of Bishop Weisenburger? Does he mean to say that any Catholic Border Patrol Agent or ICE Officers enforcing the law are "obstinately preserving in manifest grave sin"? If so, what is the "grave sin" that meets the criterion of excommunication according to Canon 915? The 19,500 employees of the U. S. Border...

Former Navy Seal Craig Sawyer is currently filming "Contraland" to expose the dark side of child sex slavery. Sawyer tells KGUN 9 a homeless advocacy group called his crew after they discovered the underground bunker --...

    The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a police officer who shot a woman outside of her home in Tucson, Arizona in May 2010.

A third police officer, Lindsay Kunz, arrived on the scene on her bicycle.  All three officers drew their guns. At least twice they told Hughes to drop the knife. Viewing the record in...

    An illegal immigrant tried to wrestle a Border Patrol agent’s gun away then was shot and killed by the agent’s partner, the agency said Thursday. Tucson Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodolfo Karisch said the two agents were tracking a group of illegal immigrant suspects in southern Arizona and when they moved in to make an arrest, one of the migrants attacked, grabbing one agent’s gun. The other agent then shot the migrant, who died of the wound.

    Up to 1,000 non-native fish died in the Lower Santa Cruz River, a retired fish biologist says, because a state contractor diverted river water for an Ina Road bridge construction project. The diversion moved the river’s treated sewage effluent from the west bank to the east bank, away from the towering, shady willow trees along the west bank. It ended Friday, a little more than a week after it started, when the contractor dug a new channel near the bridge site to reverse the effluent’s course back to the west bank. The diversion “was a necessary part of the construction,”...

    Heard on the James T Harris radio show today that Tucson's 20 X 30 foot giant American Flag at Quebedeaux Mitsubishi here in Tuscon on Speedway was burned at 4:30 in the morning sometime this weekend by vandal protesters who got away - for now. They did severe damage to the pole and left a huge pile of ashes on the sidewalk. The family has flown a big flag at their car lot since 1958. The arson squad was summoned and examined the scene. I'm assuming this is part of Antifa's big resistance weekend. Quebedeaux Mitsubishi was astounded by the...

    In September, 2017, the City of Tucson taxpayers agreed to pay the State of Arizona for the legal fees required to stop the City Council from violating State law.  The Council had required that legal, valuable firearms be destroyed rather than sold for the benefit of the public. Even liberal academics understand that is a waste of valuable resources. In 2012, Arizona made the wasteful practice of destroying valuable firearms illegal for local governments.From AZCDL.org: This legislation was a follow-up to a 2010 law that required forfeited firearms to be sold to authorized dealers and not be scrapped. Unfortunately, there...
