    PHOENIX — A Phoenix doctor is accused of pointing a gun at a small group of protesters outside Acacia Women's Center on Thursday, October 10, according to Phoenix police. Doctor Ronald Yunis was arrested by Phoenix police on Friday, October 18, on charges of aggravated assault, according to the Phoenix Police Department. A YouTube video posted by Apologia Studios depicts a group of anti-abortion protesters outside the Acacia Women's Center on October 10. As Dr. Yunis pulls out of the women's center parking lot, he appears to brandish a weapon, briefly pointing it at the protesters. ABC15 reached out to...

    In footage released Friday afternoon, it appears an abortion doctor pointed a firearm toward a pro-life demonstrator from inside his vehicle as he left a clinic in Phoenix earlier this month. Apologia Church, the group behind the pro-life demonstration at the Acacia Women’s Center on Thursday, Oct. 10, posted the video to YouTube, urging viewers to contact the Phoenix Police Department to demand action be taken against Dr. Ronald Yunis, the physician who allegedly pulled a gun on protester Elvis Kesto. The altercation took place around 11 a.m. as Kesto was packing up to leave the clinic. Yunis, who only...
  • VIDEO MIX: Gun battles engulf Culiacán streets forcing Mexico's National Guard to stand down

    10/18/2019 8:13:33 AM PDT · by MassMinuteman · 24 replies
    In what appears to have been a routine patrol, 30 members of Mexico's National Guard were caught off guard and ambushed from an unsuspecting local house. After repelling the initial attack, authorities soon discovered Ovidio Guzmán López, son of "El Chapo" and suspected co-leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, hiding inside the home. Chaos quickly ensued as gunmen blocked streets with burning vehicles. The scenes that unfolded were reminiscent of a war zone.
  • AZ-Sen. 2010: McCain zeroes in on Hayworth's World War II claims

    Politico ^ | 2010-05-25 | Sean J. Miller
    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) seized on his primary rival’s shaky historical knowledge this week. On Monday, his camp released a video of former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-Ariz.) saying the United States didn't declare war on Nazi Germany during the Second World War, but rather, it was vice versa. Hayworth's incorrect statement has now made its way into a vintage-looking Web video the McCain camp released Tuesday. With the primary still months away, however, this is unlikely to linger as an issue.
  • Public University Gives Chinese Communists Funding, Exclusive Rights

    Judicial Watch ^ | October 16, 2019 | Judicial Watch
    In the midst of a human rights crisis and violent pro-democracy manifestations in China, Judicial Watch has obtained records that expose a troubling partnership between a public American university and the Chinese Communists at the heart of the abuses. The records show that the University of Arizona (UA), a taxpayer-funded institution with an enrollment of about 44,000, paid $100,000 to launch a Confucius Institute on its Tucson campus more than a decade ago and subsequently dedicated nearly $2 million and other public resources to keep it going. Confucius Institutes were founded by the Chinese government and are managed by China’s...
  • Abortion politics jeopardizes future of AZ (211) crisis hotline

    12news ^ | October 17, 2019 | Joe Dana
    During moments of desperation, Arizonans routinely rely on a 211 crisis hotline for help. "Everyone knows about 211. I've referred other people to them. I’ve called them myself about shelter," said Enrique Troche, sitting on a street corner recently near the CASS homeless shelter in Phoenix. But the nonprofit that manages the hotline has signaled it is running out of financial support, and an effort to restore state funds to the hotline failed earlier this year. The bill was left to die at the committee-level after a socially conservative think tank raised alarm bells because three phone calls to the...
  • Congress fails again to stop Trump from using military money for his border wall

    CNBC ^ | October 17, 2019 | Jacob Pramuk
    Congress fell short Thursday in its second attempt to end the national emergency President Donald Trump declared to secure money for his proposed border wall. Both chambers of Congress have passed measures to block Trump’s declaration twice since the president took the step in March, prompting two vetoes. Lawmakers failed to override the second veto Thursday as the GOP-held Senate could not muster the two-thirds majority needed. The chamber voted by a 53-36 margin to end the emergency. Ten Republicans voted with Democrats in supporting the resolution. Democrats and some Republicans have accused the president of overreaching and disregarding Congress’...

    Anyone wondering why religious people still support Donald Trump, despite his flaws, need only watch a recording of the Democrats’ fanatical LGBTQ town hall last week. From Elizabeth Warren mocking religious males as incapable of finding a wife to Beto O’Rourke’s promise to strip tax benefits from religious institutions, or Cory Booker’s assertion that Catholics use religion to justify discrimination, you see the ugly face of militant secularism and coercion. It is frightening that every one of the nine Democratic candidates who took part in the CNN event has signed up to extreme policies that attack religious liberty and radically...

The page, which is simply titled “Our Positions,” states where the Seattle tech giant stands on eleven issues -- several of which have a direct impact on business in America.

    Economist Paul Krugman, the longtime defender of global free trade and a member of the failed “Never Trump” movement, now admits that globalization has failed American workers. In a column for Bloomberg titled “What Economists (Including Me) Got Wrong About Globalization,” Krugman admits that the economic consensus for free trade that has prevailed for decades has failed to recognize how globalization has skyrocketed inequality for America’s working and middle class workers. Krugman, though, writes that he and his fellow free trade economists “had no way to know” that globalization of the American economy or a surge in trade deficits “were...

    A resourceful archaeologist has made the stunning discovery of 27 new ancient Mayan sites—all without ever leaving his desk. Takeshi Inomata, an researcher at the University of Arizona, made his discoveries using freely accessible light detection and ranging maps (LiDAR for short) published in 2011 by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography in Mexico, according to the New York Times. The organization created the map, which surveys 4,400 square miles of land in the Mexican states of Tabasco and Chiapas, with an eye toward serving businesses and researchers. An even though the imagery is low resolution, it still suited...

    Whites tend to vote Republican, while nonwhites tend to vote Democrat. This proved true in the 2016 election, when Trump carried white voters by 20 percent, while Hillary Clinton won 74 percent of nonwhite voters. With the number of Latinos living in the United States nearly doubling since 2000, it is not difficult to see why Texas could soon follow California, Colorado, and Nevada into the Democratic camp in the next 20 years. Using the 2000 census and the 2010 census along with 2018 data, the electoral reality becomes more clear. The population of those under 18 will be majority...

    Severio Kyyitan was awoken one recent morning by a thunderous thumping that reverberated through the walls of his home. It might be an earthquake, he thought, until he looked outside and discovered a pack of wild horses running by his property on the Gila River Indian Community. Animals have free reign on the reservation, he said, and that’s the way Kyyitan likes it. He’s hopeful state officials will keep wildlife in mind as they plan a possible widening of Interstate 10 through the reservation. “We know it’s a need,” Kyyitan said, adding that he doesn’t want the project to interfere...

    A woman took 2020 presidential candidateBeto O'Rourke to task over illegal immigration and his push for the government to confiscate some guns, at a Phoenix town hall Sunday. "Hands off our guns, Beto," the woman said at The Churchill open-air food court. "You're not getting our guns. The AR-15 is no more deadly than my Ruger .45." The woman referred to a statement O'Rourke made during the Democrats' third primary debate on Sept. 12 when asked if he would support a mandatory buyback of assault-style weapons. "Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We're not going to...

    The Arizona Daily Star (Tucson) ^ | September 16, 2019 | Shaq Davis
    A new report ranking the deadliest highways in the nation calls Interstate 10 the “most dangerous” in Arizona. But Arizona highway officials say the ranking is incomplete and overlooks a variety of efforts made to make the highway that links the two most populous metro areas in the state as safe as possible. There were 100 fatalities on Arizona’s nearly 400 miles of I-10 from 2015 to 2017, according to ASecureLife’s report, which used statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The company, which mainly deals in security systems, said it seeks to report on everyday issues affecting consumers....

    A Republican attorney filed a lawsuit on Tuesday demanding that two California agencies develop a better system to verify the citizenship of people who register to vote through the Department of Motor Vehicles. In the lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court in Sacramento, Harmeet Dhillon alleges Secretary of State Alex Padilla is violating federal law by not verifying citizenship information from the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles. She wants the DMV to send Padilla more records related to citizenship to demonstrate that only eligible people are able to register.

    The rest of the title: It's 'time to risk your careers in favor of your principles.' Former GOP Sen. Jeff Flake on Monday urged Republicans in Congress not to support President Donald Trump's 2020 reelection bid, saying they have a moral obligation to put their principles first -- even if it means risking their careers. Flake, a longtime Trump critic who has before argued that the Republican Party should not support the President in 2020, made his case in an op-ed published in The Washington Post titled "Fellow Republicans, there's still time to save your souls," writing that Senate Republicans...
