    There’s big trouble in little Progressivetown, folks. That’s trouble with a capital T, which rhymes with We, as in We (meaning Daily KOS) won’t be going to Netroots Nation next year because it’s being held in Arizona. Netroots Nation announced two days ago that Phoenix, Arizona would host its 2015 conference. I wish the conference the best, but it will unfortunately take place without Daily Kos’ attendance or assistance. I made very clear in the wake of Arizona’s passage of SB 1070 that I would not be setting foot in the state, nor spending a dime in it until the...

    CNN's The Lead with Jake Tapper ^ | July 18, 2014 | Jake Tapper
    Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, made a surprising suggestion Thursday night: If he had been elected in 2000, there might not have been a war in Iraq. The Vietnam veteran and former prisoner of war, who lost his race for the GOP nomination that year but went on to become his party’s nominee in 2008, made his comments in a far-reaching interview in CNN and National Journal’s “Politics On Tap” event, after this reporter asked him what would be different if he had won either in 2000 or 2008. On 2008, McCain said “national security” would be different, and he delineated...

    Term limited Secretary of State Ken Bennett is one of the pack of six running in the Republican primary for governor. He’s generally regarded as a low-key guy better known for strumming his guitar and making budget presentations using Kleenex boxes, than for the time he served in the state senate from 1998 – 2007. He also gained attention for incidents surrounding verification of Obama’s birth certificate. Not nearly as much for the inquiry itself as for his inane follow-up apology as reported here on KTAR News. Now, as if he isn’t busy enough running a statewide campaign financed by...

The 30-second ad, which began airing today on broadcast television statewide, mostly touts Thomas’ attempts at enforcing immigration during his tenure as Maricopa County Attorney. Alongside Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Thomas made a name for himself by taking a hard line against immigration along the Arizona-Mexico border.

    Top White House officials have reportedly been holding private meetings with lawmakers this week to boost support for the president’s foreign policy strategy, although the outreach effort appears to have left some lawmakers confused and upset. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) described a meeting with White House chief of staff Denis McDonough and National Security Adviser Susan Rice earlier this week as “one of the most bizarre I've attended on Foreign Relations on foreign policy in our country.” “I know several of us were involved in a very bizarre discussion last night. This continues a very bizarre discussion,” Corker added, according...

    Abortion advocate Planned Parenthood is under investigation after it was revealed that one of the organization's counselors in Arizona failed to report a rape allegedly carried out by accused 18-year-old serial predator, Tyler Kost, because it was too much of a "hassle." Kost, of San Tan Valley, Arizona, was recently charged with assaulting 11 girls between the ages of 12 and 17, spanning the period from October 2009 to April 2014, according to Fox News. Authorities, however, believe that he has assaulted at least 18 students from Poston Butte High School.

    A Planned Parenthood counselor in Arizona intentionally miscoded a sexual assault as a consensual encounter to avoid the “hassle” of reporting it to authorities, months before other victims came forward to stop an alleged 18-year-old serial sex predator, a police report reveals. Tyler Kost, of San Tan Valley, Ariz., has been charged with sexually assaulting 11 girls from the ages of 12 to 17 between October 2009 and April 2014, although authorities believe he has assaulted at least 18 students from Poston Butte High School. The mother of one 15-year-old victim, who became pregnant as a result of the alleged...

    FULL TITLE: Sheriff: Investigate Planned Parenthood That Didn’t Report Rape of Teen, Allowing Man to Rape 18 Other Girls A county sheriff wants state agencies to probe the Planned Parenthood abortion business and determine why it purposefully did not report the rape of a teenage girl that it saw as a customer, allowing the rapist to target other teen girls. Planned Parenthood abortion clinics have come under fire countless times over the years for not reporting cases of statutory rape to authorities as required by state law. Earlier this month, in Arizona, officials says the abortion giant failed again to...

    Challengers see themselves in the Texas senator, even in races where their odds of an upset are considered steeper than Cruz’s surprise victory over a GOP establishment figure two years ago. He’s made endorsements in the Oklahoma and Nebraska Senate races, plus the Nebraska gubernatorial race, and sent almost $26,000 to federal candidates through his leadership PAC. “Ted Cruz would be extremely helpful as an endorser and a fundraiser,” said C. Edmund Wright, a consultant to longshot South Carolina Senate hopeful Lee Bright, in an email. “Rand Paul and Mike Lee would be great also.” But, he said, “the reason...

    Gun control supporters appear poised to force New Jersey's Republican governor, Chris Christie, often discussed as a potential presidential candidate in 2016, to show where he stands on the Second Amendment. On Monday, the state's Senate passed A2006, legislation to lower the state's magazine-capacity limit from 15 rounds to 10 rounds, by a vote of 22-17, mostly along party lines. The bill will be sent to Christie for signature or veto after the Assembly, which previously approved it by a vote of 46-31, approves technical changes made to the bill by the Senate. Once the bill reaches Christie's desk, he...

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) is wading into the crowded Arizona governor's race by throwing his support behind state treasurer Doug Ducey (R) Wednesday morning. "Doug Ducey demonstrates the kind of conservative, common-sense leadership that our party needs in Arizona," Walker said in a statement shared with Post Politics by Ducey's campaign. "He’s not afraid of taking on tough challenges, and that’s why I know he’d be a great Governor."

    Barry Goldwater High School’s 2014 error-filled yearbook is getting some laughs from students but mostly criticism from those who think it wasn’t worth the $60 to $70 price. As reported by KSAZ Fox 10, the school’s yearbook staff has, in the past, won awards, and received recognition from the National Scholastic Press Association for their stellar work. Unfortunately, this year’s publication was not their best. The Phoenix, Arizona school’s tome contained misprints, incorrect dates, and capitalization errors. One senior’s photo was printed with a quote over her face. The cover was even printed with the wrong year and volume number.

    “Never in my life did I ever believe that our country would be taken over by people like the people who are running it at this day.” “When we have leadership that thinks that the Constitution of the United States of America is a joke, when we have a President who has almost a thousand Executive Orders now, when we have a Department of Justice that thinks that any kind of a judicial system that they make up as they go along can get by with whatever they decide that they won’t do.” “What’s happened with Fast and Furious?
