  • Joy Ann Reid Spreads Unproven Rumor That Trump Campaign Hiring Black Actors For Phoenix Rally

    The Daily Caller ^ | 08/21/2017 | Peter Hasson
    MSNBC host and political analyst Joy Ann Reid is now spreading unverified internet rumors that fit her worldview. Reid, who has a history of spreading misinformation, garnered thousands of retweets on Sunday by amplifying an unproven rumor that President Trump’s re-election campaign is hiring minority actors for Trump’s political rally in Phoenix on Tuesday. Reid followed up with an “update” noting that the link had been deleted. A left-wing activist was the first to claim that the Trump campaign is hiring minority actors for the campaign rally. The only basis for his claim was a since-deleted Craigslist advertisement soliciting actors....

    Governor not going: A Trump campaign official tells 12 News that Republican Gov. Doug Ducey won't be at the rally for the Republican president. "Ducey is choosing not to attend, but he will be greeting the president's airplane, along with the (Arizona) congressional delegation, when it lands," said the Trump campaign official, who requested anonymity. Ducey spokesman Daniel Scarpinato said Sunday night he couldn't confirm the governor's plans. Trump visited the state seven times during the presidential campaign. Ducey appeared just once at a Trump rally, in August 2016 in Phoenix, without Trump on the stage.

  • Trump Phoenix rally to highlight feisty feud with senator

    When President Donald Trump takes the stage this week at a rally in Arizona, the state's junior senator will be nowhere to be seen. But Trump is likely to save some choice words for Sen. Jeff Flake. The senator is currently in an escalating feud with the president — a spat that illustrates the upside-down world of Republican politics heading into the 2018 elections. Flake is a Republican incumbent who is beloved by many high-ranking party officials and he is trying to hold onto a seat that the party needs to keep control of Congress. Meanwhile, the president from his...

  • How to Give Jeff Flake’s Senate Seat to a Democrat (RINO Alert)

    National Review ^ | August 18, 2017 | Jonathan S. Tobin
    President Donald Trump’s tweet yesterday morning endorsing a primary challenger to Arizona senator Jeff Flake was hardly a surprise. Trump likes to call himself a counter-puncher, so from his frame of reference, Flake had been asking for it by not only consistently criticizing the president but also spending the summer promoting a book attacking Trump and the Republicans who haven’t stood up to him. But this is a move Trump and his party may come to regret. Trump wasn’t the only one annoyed by Flake’s Conscience of a Conservative and the accompanying tour. The senator’s attempt to cast himself as...
  • Arizona Court Rules On Cities Destroying Confiscated Guns Good news!)

    The NRA Institute for Legislative Action picked up a potentially important court ruling coming out of Arizona this week which has mostly flown under the media radar. Under debate is a policy in Tuscon (along with other cities and counties) which mandates the routine destruction of guns which are confiscated from criminals or surrendered during “no questions asked” gun turn-in events. Since guns are items of value, the question is raised as to whether or not they can simply destroy and dispose of them rather than offering them for legal sale to subsidize taxpayer contributions to the city’s coffers. The...

    Former Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio said Thursday he would be honored if President Trump decided to pardon him following his recent conviction for criminal contempt of court. In an interview with NPR, the outspoken sheriff said he hasn't spoken with Trump, but was pleased to see reports that the president is on his side. "It makes me feel good that at least someone is backing me up. And how much better can you get than president of the United States?" Arpaio told NPR. Trump told Fox News this week he was "seriously considering" a pardon for Arpaio, who...

    Fleas in two Arizona counties tested positive for the Bubonic plague — the same disease that killed millions of people in the 14th century throughout Africa, Asia, and Europe, public health officials say. Navajo County public health officials announced Friday that fleas collected near the town of Taylor tested positive for Yersinia pestis, the bacteria that causes the Bubonic plague, the Associated Press reports. The announcement came one week after Coconino County officials first discovered fleas in the area found to be carrying the plague. KNXV reports that Coconino County officials first discovered the plague-infested fleas in the Red Lake...

    PHOENIX - The Confederate monument that stands at Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza, just outside the Arizona state Capitol, looked a little different than it usually does Tuesday evening. In addition to its memorializing of Arizona Confederate soldiers and its erectors, the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the statue got a few new decorations. At the top, a ribbon hung with the words, "You lost, get over it," and at the bottom, the monuments message "A nation that forgets its past has no future" had been covered with a "2nd Place," "Participant" banner.

    President Trump on Thursday said it was “great” to see Republican Kelli Ward challenging Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, who the president labeled “toxic” and a “non-factor” in the U.S. Senate. “Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He’s toxic!” Mr. Trump tweeted. The president’s open embrace of a primary challenger to a sitting Republican senator comes as Mr. Trump prepares to head to Phoenix next week for a campaign rally, where he could formally endorse a challenger to Mr. Flake, who has...

White paint coated parts of the monument located in the Wesley Bolin Plaza in downtown Phoenix, but there is no word yet on who may have been behind the vandalism. ABC15 crews on scene showed a clean-up crew hosing off the monument around 6 a.m.

    Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton said he is "disappointed" that President Donald Trump plans to hold a campaign rally in Arizona during the national turmoil following the events in Charlottesville over the weekend. Trump is planning a campaign-style rally in Arizona next week, amid an uproar sparked by his ambivalent response to white supremacists and the death of an anti-racist protester in the Charlottesville violence. The President host supporters in Phoenix next Tuesday, one week after he reiterated his claim that anti-racist protesters were as violent as Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi protesters in Charlottesville and that the "alt-right" groups included...

    President Trump’s new campaign trip to Arizona next week has state Republicans speculating that he is going to endorse a primary challenger to Sen. Jeff Flake. Mr. Trump is leaning towards endorsing Arizona Treasurer Jeff DeWit, state Republican sources told The Washington Times, in a move that could help crystalize the race. Mr. DeWit, who was chairman of the Mr. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign in Arizona, has been eyeing the race but has not yet announced his candidacy.
