  • The Jaw-Dropping Difference Between the Old 'Wall' and the New Wall the Trump Admin Is Building

    Town Hall ^ | Oct 21, 2020 | Julio Rosas
    "Wow" was all I was able to say as the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Blackhawk flew alongside the U.S.-Mexico border and the difference between the old "wall" system and the new wall system under construction came into view... The old "wall" that covers large lengths of the border is laughably easy to get over. It consists of barbed wire fencing, held together by fragile-looking wooden posts and Normandy barriers intended to stop illegal vehicle crossings. "I think you can see for yourself...it's a political narrative, right? They want to score some political points by saying, 'Oh, it's just...

    At about 1:30 in the morning of 2 January 2019, four people attempted a home invasion/burglary in Yuma County, Arizona. I remember the incident as it was reported. Very few details were given. Four people were shot. The location was not revealed. It was not in the City of Yuma, because the Sheriff department was the responding department. The identity of the defender was not revealed. The firearm or firearms were not identified. Deputies involved were not identified. From foxnews.com, at the time: The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call at approximately 1:38 a.m. Thursday and...

    Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes wants a court to bless the practice he is using that allows some people to cast a ballot by video conference. In a lawsuit filed Friday, Fontes said state law provides for “special election boards” composed of one Republican and one Democrat to assist voters who are confined because of illness or disability. But Fontes said the COVID-19 outbreak and public health restrictions may keep board members from entering these facilities. So he has developed — and used in the August primary — a system that uses video technology. “Unfortunately, Gov. Doug Ducey has taken...

I registered for tickets but haven’t received anything. Do they send tickets via text or email? Or do we just show up as early as we can? Any helpful hints on what to bring or not bring? Any other Freepers planning to go?

    President Donald Trump holds a slim lead over Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden in battleground Arizona among likely voters, a Targoz Market Research/PollSmart survey released Thursday found. The survey, fielded September 23 to October 2 among 1,045 likely voters, showed Trump narrowly leading Biden in the Grand Canyon State by two percentage points — 45 percent to the former vice president’s 43 percent, among likely voters, specifically. The gap narrows one percentage point for “likely with leaners,” with Trump garnering 46 percent to Biden’s 45 percent. Trump also holds a one-point advantage in a low turnout scenario. “While many other...

    Mark Kelly campaign spokesman T.J. L’Heureux is apologizing for calling police “worthless f****** pigs” in August 2020, the Washington Times reported.

The insult was made in an August 17, 2020, tweet, which L’Heureux has since deleted but which the Washington Free Beacon published. “Chicago Police you worthless f****** pigs,” L’Heureux’s tweet read. L’Heureux joined Kelly’s campaign about a week after sending the text. “I deeply regret my comment and apologize for what I wrote — I was wrong,” L’Heureux told the Arizona Republic. “My comment does...

What did you learn about how he thinks about diplomacy and counterterrorism and the use of military force that others would not have seen?”

    Arizona Republican Senate candidate Sen. Martha McSally has enlisted former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, one of the Republican Party's rising stars, to help fend off a challenge from Democrat Mark Kelly. McSally, who was appointed by Gov. Doug Ducey after she lost a different seat to Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, is now in a tight race against Kelly, the astronaut husband of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. She has attempted to rally voters to her side by arguing that Kelly has problematic business ties to China, a claim that Haley echoed Monday while stumping at an event in Scottsdale.
