    Few things could be more American than volunteering to help others. So it’s a shame when our altruism is thwarted by another, far more lamentable American trait: big government. Juan Carlos Montes de Oca knows firsthand.A cosmetology student from Tucson, Montes de Oca felt inspired when he heard about a barber in London who donated haircuts to the homeless on his days off. So he decided to do the same for homeless veterans in Arizona. He did this free of charge, of course, to give the veterans a better appearance and a more positive outlook when applying for jobs.“Out of...

    TUCSON — Wildfires, extreme storms and major weather events can seem like a distant threat, but for those whose lives have been directly impacted by these events, the threat hits much closer to home. As reports of such incidents continue to rise, researchers at the University of Arizona set out to learn more about how people's perception of the threat of global climate change affects their mental health. They found that while some people have little anxiety about the Earth's changing climate, others are experiencing high levels of stress, and even depression, based on their perception of the threat of...

    Pro-amnesty GOP Senators are working hand-in-glove with Democrats to block a government budget until President Donald Trump agrees to break his campaign promise and his presidency by amnestying millions of wage-lowering illegal immigrants. The hostage-taking is being fronted by a group of GOP legislators, led by Sen. Jeff Flake and Sen. Lindsey Graham, who announced Wednesday they would not allow 2018 funding for the Pentagon until Trump approves an amnesty, saying:

    U.S. Senator John McCain wants President Trump to stop attacking the American free press. The Arizona Republican and Vietnam War veteran penned a critical op-ed in the Washington Post on Tuesday, one day before the U.S. leader's teased "Fake News Awards" were scheduled to take place. "The Fake News Awards, those going to the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media, will be presented to the losers on Wednesday, January 17th, rather than this coming Monday," Trump wrote last week. "The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated!" McCain says the...

    President Donald Trump’s military doctor Dr. Ronny Jackson conducted a physical exam of the president’s health and although the results were “excellent,” he answered questions about the president’s health at the White House press briefing on Tuesday. Dr. Jackson stood at the podium and answered questions from reporters for over 50 minutes, reassuring them that the president was healthy, he did not wear dentures, he did not have heart disease, and was mentally fit for duty. Here are the 80 questions that were asked.

    Townhall.com ^ | January 18, 2018 | Robert Graham
    Soft spoken, thoughtful and a principled leader were words that were sometimes used to describe Arizona Senator Jeff Flake. As a congressman, Flake built a reputation as a fiscally conservative republican, free market activist and a representative who was watery on immigration enforcement. Although most Arizonans did not stand with the Senator with regards to his position on immigration, his reputation as a fiscal conservative offered the general voting public definition and a path to what some would constitute his values and principles. Thus, helping him to be elected and reelected. Today, his reputation has eroded into what some would...

    Townhall.com ^ | January 16, 2018 | Scott Morefield
    Liberal narratives don’t die easily, but when they do the fall can often be hard and fast. Consider the “myth of the noble illegal immigrant,” an insistence by a Left longing for more Democratic votes and an Establishment Right longing for more cheap labor that illegal immigrants are uber-law-abiding - indeed, are the most law-abiding among us, so law-abiding, in fact, that they could easily teach us Americans something about how to law abide, or something. My Townhall column last month, entitled, “The 'Big Lie' Starts to Crumble as Feds Release Immigrant Crime Data,“ apparently caused an inkling of a stir...

    The question of who will be the next senator from Arizona, replacing Jeff Flake, is looking less clear than ever this week. For quite a while now it had been looking like Dr. Kelli Ward might have a fairly clear shot at it. She’s the same Tea Party candidate who had been trying to replace John McCain and has quite a following in conservative circles. But now two new flies have dropped into the ointment. In only a week, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Congresswoman Martha McSally have entered the fray. And the initial polling of this new alignment shows that...

    This doesn’t seem random … NY Times full-bore … Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. To celebrate the day, over the long weekend the New York Times dedicated not one, not two, but three pieces to declaring President Donald Trump a racist. First up we have “Donald Trump’s racism: The definitive list.” Then there’s Charles M. Blow’s piece, “Trump is a racist. Period.” This piece has the helpful URL “trump-racist-shithole.” Then there’s “The heartbeat of racism is denial.” The last one is great: If you deny you are a racist, it means you are one. Flake-out … When Josef...

    Using newly released detailed data on all prisoners who entered the Arizona state prison from January 1985 through June 2017, we are able to separate non-U.S. citizens by whether they are illegal or legal residents. These data do not rely on self-reporting by criminals. Undocumented immigrants are at least 142% more likely to be convicted of a crime than other Arizonans. They also tend to commit more serious crimes and serve 10.5% longer sentences, more likely to be classified as dangerous, and 45% more likely to be gang members than U.S. citizens. Yet, there are several reasons that these numbers...

And I just want to read a portion of what we’ve had.It’s a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses...

    Sen. Jeff Flake is planning to slam President Donald Trump's attacks on the press on the Senate floor this week in a speech that will compare the president's use of the term "enemy of the people" to describe the media to Soviet dictator Josef Stalin. "When a figure in power reflexively calls any press that doesn't suit him 'fake news,' it is that person who should be the figure of suspicion, not the press," Flake, R-Ariz., will say, according to excerpts of the speech provided to NBC News. Trump called the media the "enemy of the people" in a February...

    Print Save TUCSON — U.S. Rep. Martha McSally made it official on Friday: She’s running for Jeff Flake’s Senate seat. McSally, 51, made the announcement at the Tucson Jet Center near Tucson International Airport this morning, then took off in a World War II-era two-seater training plane headed to Phoenix and Prescott to deliver the same message. “I don't sit quietly and I don't scare easily. When I make promises, I don't interpret them loosely,” McSally told about 200 people, including a strong contingent of veterans. “Should I take an oath as your senator, raising my right hand again, you...

    I do believe Cuba’s responsible. I do believe that. And it’s a very unusual attack, as you know. But I do believe Cuba is responsible.” (President Trump regarding strange attacks on U.S. diplomats in Cuba that resulted in brain damage.)“What we’ve said to the Cubans is: small island, you’ve got a sophisticated security apparatus. You probably know who is doing it. You can stop it. It’s as simple as that.” (Secretary of State Rex Tillerson regarding same attacks.)Recently brain-damage was confirmed on the U.S. diplomats who served in the U.S. embassy in Cuba. So to most reasonable people, the KGB-founded...

    EILAT, Israel — The founders of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted that they helped the researcher hired to compile the infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump to share the document with Sen. John McCain. The goal of providing the dossier to McCain, the Fusion GPS founders explained, was to pass the information contained in the questionable document to the U.S. intelligence community under the Obama administration.

    Joe Arpaio, the infamous former sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., announced on Tuesday that he is running for the Senate seat soon to be left open by retiring Republican senator Jeff Flake. Before Arpaio entered the race, the dynamics of the GOP primary seemed straightforward enough: In the populist lane was Kelli Ward, who enjoyed endorsements from the likes of Steve Bannon and Sean Hannity; Representative Martha McSally was set to fill the other lane, earning the support of Mitch McConnell and his political allies. If a third candidate entered, it was expected to be former state GOP chairman...

    In a stunning move, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has overtaken former state senator Kelli Ward and is in a virtual dead heat race with Martha McSally in the latest poll out of Arizona. Following his pardon by President Donald Trump Arpaio told the Washington Examiner that he was considering a run for the US Senate to represent Arizona. Now that seems to be taking hold in Arizona. ABC 15 reports: A Tuesday poll from ABC15/OHPI shows Joe Arpaio skyrocketing to the top of the Republican Primary for U.S. Senate in Arizona. The poll, conducted the same day Arpaio announced his Senate run, shows the former...
