    Arizona police shot and killed a transgender man who gained viral fame last year after uploading a video showing his service dog calming him during a meltdown. The 24-year-old, who had Asperger's syndrome, was legally known as Danielle Jacobs, but identified as Kayden Clarke and hoped to transition from female to male, friends told the Arizona Republic. Police were at his home Thursday morning after being alerted to a suicidal email he had sent out, according to the Associated Press. A pair of officers tried to talk to Clarke through an open doorway as a third officer retrieved a "less-than-lethal...

    The anti-Trump super-PAC that spent more than $2 million slamming the billionaire in Iowa is preparing to launch a new secret weapon in New Hampshire -- John McCain. "Probably the only significant strategy shift is we are going to remind voters in New Hampshire about the disgraceful things that he said about John McCain," said the leader of Our Principles PAC, Katie Packer, who was Mitt Romney's deputy campaign manager in 2012. Trump offended many Republicans when he mocked McCain's Vietnam War service last July, saying "he was a war hero because he was captured. ... I like people who...

    Excerpted KANAB — Most of the people who came to the funeral of LaVoy Finicum didn't know the Arizona rancher personally. They came anyway, in trucks and campers and caravans, drawn either by kinship with the Finicum family or by sympathy for the cause that took him to rural Oregon. The Arizona rancher was one of the most recognizable faces of the armed standoff in Oregon, where a group of protesters seized the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in early January to protest what they said was federal overreach into Western rangelands. Finicum was shot dead by police on Jan. 26...

    Things aren’t looking good for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), as leaked data from two polls shows his 33-year congressional tenure may not survive the 2016 election cycle. "Senator McCain's key fundamentals are all very poor," reads a polling memo leaked from an anonymous pollster in the Grand Canyon State. "His ballot, his image, his job approval and his hard re-elect all suggest that he is an incredibly vulnerable incumbent as we head into 2016." A memo regarding accompanying polling data gathered between January 56 explains McCain's weaknesses in detail, referring to majority negative opinions on both job approval and personal...

Current rules allow any organization to call the city clerk's office and choose a date to act as the prayer leaders for that particular meeting.

On Wednesday in Arizona, pro-life protesters were targeted by a man and his two teenage children in a drive-by incident, according to 12 News in Phoenix. Police arrested 34-year-old David Turner after he allegedly had his 14-year-old daughter use a squirt gun to spray tomato juice from his car onto pro-lifers standing outside a Tempe Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, the report states. According to authorities, the father bought a water gun and tomato juice on Wednesday morning...

In fact, if you were to review the debate substance you'd note that candidate Rubio wasn't directly questioned about his immigration positions at all.It is not disconnected that during the 2013/2014 Gang-of-Eight immigration constructs, Fox News was an active participant in the promotion of the immigration reform proposals.

    Democrats in the Arizona Legislature want a law that requires judges to give preferences to married heterosexual couples in adoption stricken from the books. The legislation introduced in both the Senate and House removes current language giving preferences to a husband and wife over others in adoptions. Backers say the U.S. Supreme Court's decision last year legalizing same-sex marriage bans laws giving preferences to heterosexual couple over gay couples. Sen. Steve Farley, D-Tucson, also said single parents shouldn't be given second-tier status on adoptions so the proposal completely eliminates preferences for married couples. He said single parents are just as...

It appears all these people have to do is show proof of the eligibility requirements to run for president as stated in the constitution. So far none have, however Jindal has dropped out so it is moot for him. (Citizenship is not the same as the naturalization requirements for citizenship to run for President as stated in the constitution.) For some odd reason, Cruz has had his birth records sealed.

    Tucson Federal District Court Judge David Bury issued a decision on December 30 denying a retrial for imprisoned former Congressman Rick Renzi of Arizona, developments which I've been tracking over the last six months. Bizarrely, at the same time, Bury admitted in his nine-page opinion that virtually everything factual Renzi had asserted in his motion for a retrial regarding the prosecution's misconduct was true. The prosecution withheld exculpatory evidence from Renzi's defense — which likely would have changed the jury's mind — not just once, but multiple times. Some of it was not discovered until after the trial was over,...

    Chris Rock is a favorite of ours at LwC (see Dear Racist Chris Rock: White Kids Get Shot Too.. More, Actually and Dear Chris Rock: You Racist, Ignorant A...), as is Jennifer Lawrence (see Jennifer Lawrence Angers Feminists on 'Equal Pay' : 'I Blame Myself..' and #SJW Feminists OUTRAGED Over How Much Jennifer Lawrence Makes..), so when we heard the two names together.. Oh, no. They aren't making a movie together. Chris Rock was just claiming that if J-Law were black, then she would really have some unequally pay to complain about. Rock, who spread the word about Jones to...

    The results are in for one Illinois university's famous mock presidential election, but the clear winner may surprise some. Western Illinois University's mock election predicted a landslide victory for Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, with running mate Martin O'Malley, in 2016. The predicted Sanders-O'Malley ticket garnered 404 electoral votes to Jeb Bush-Marco Rubio's 114 votes. In the popular vote, Sanders earned 741 votes (49 percent) to Bush's 577 (38 percent). The famously accurate mock election correctly predicted the outcomes of the 2008 and 2012 elections, and the university claims it's the "largest and most elaborate mock presidential simulation in the nation."...

    You want predictions? After a year like this?! Who knows. I will say in my defense that after Donald Trump went after John McCain, and nearly everybody in Punditland was saying that’s it, he’s cooked, I wrote no, not so fast. Five-plus months later, that column reads pretty well! So here I go. Who Will Be the Republican Presidential Nominee?: As I write these words, I’m gonna go ahead and say Ted Cruz, although I actually kinda think it will be Trump, and I’m aware that I’m just saying Cruz to sound respectable (Cruz! Respectable!). Marco Rubio...well, here’s the thing....

    The dabate continues: do we stick to our principles, or do we run to the middle? Since Romney’s shocking defeat, this debate has taken on a new sense of urgency, with the thinking that if Obama was reelected, even Hillary can win this thing?!? Nobody changed teams, obviously…. The moderates remained moderates, and are “now more then ever”, energized to crush the right wing, that “cost us” an important election…. The conservatives, are equally incredulous, and fear a do-over with another moderate, will net us exactly the same results as last time…. THIS DABATE ACTUALLY SEEMS TO BE, BETWEEN REASON...

    A 4-year-old South Carolina boy touched hearts around the world when he told a mall Santa that his Christmas wish list included Santa's prayers for a baby on life support in Las Vegas. Prestyn Barnette met Santa at the Dutch Square Mall in Columbia., S.C., a week ago. First, the shy little boy asked for a toy train. Then he asked St. Nick to pray for Baby Knox, a 2-month-old being kept alive on a respirator. Prestyn learned about the infant through his grandmother's Facebook prayer group. "Santa said we will pray now and he got down and prayed," the...

    But the billionaire businessman said the majority of the GOP hopefuls were "nice to him," saying he was prepared for all 14 Republican candidates to lob attacks at him.

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Wednesday continued to bash CNN's debate coverage and GOP rival former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush a day after the network's Tuesday night debate. The real estate mogul appeared at his first campaign rally in Mesa, Ariz., since the last GOP debate of...

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump teamed up with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for a post-presidential debate victory lap Wednesday, drawing a crowd of thousands to see the two conservative stars of the illegal immigration debate on the same stage. "You're the patriots, and you've got a lot of people -- believe me -- a lot of people won't say it, but they support Donald Trump. They won't tell you, but when they go into that voting booth, watch out," Sheriff Arpaio predicted as he introduced Mr. Trump. Immigration issues have been the lifeblood of Mr. Trump's unconventional but wildly...
