  • Understanding Memorial Day. Congresswoman speaks to more than 400 at Monday evening event

    05/27/2015 5:42:53 AM PDT · by SandRat · 1 replies
    SIERRA VISTA — There are two things Republican U.S. Rep. Martha McSally dislikes about Memorial Day. One is people who wish others a “Happy Memorial Day,” which means they have no idea of the significance of the day. Memorial Day is a time to reflect on the sacrifice those who served in the nation’s armed forces and gave their lives and there is nothing joyful about that, she told more than 400 people who attended the late Monday afternoon ceremony at the state-operated Southern Arizona Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery.

    FORT HUACHUCA — Memorial Day is the time to remember those who gave all — their lives — in defending the freedom Americans believe in, Maj. Gen. Robert Ashley told more than 800 gathered at the post cemetery Monday morning. A bright sun created shadows on the ground, as one bird constantly chirped throughout the ceremony, as a slight breeze rustled leaves in the trees
  • A Proposal for an Immigration Executive Order to Build a Border Wall

    Attorney Website ^ | May 26, 2015 | James C. Wolf
    President Obama can flex his presidential power issuing Executive Orders regarding immigration. I propose the most urgent presidential mandate should be to build a border wall. As an immigration attorney based in California, I would benefit from the government ignoring the border and creating millions of new clients for my firm. But as an American, I want the Government to protect our soil and my family from threats coming across our southern border. Drug mules and Islamic State terrorists should not be able to waltz into the US. Therefore I have drafted a proposal, and an effectively free funding plan,...

    Updated, 10:50 a.m. | Arizona Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick will challenge Republican Sen. John McCain for Senate, according to a source with knowledge of Kirkpatrick’s plans, giving Democrats a top recruit and a potential pickup opportunity. Kirkpatrick made calls Monday to inform people of her plans, the source told CQ Roll Call. Her bid also opens up Arizona’s 1st District, a GOP-leaning seat spanning the northeast quadrant of the state. An hour after this story was published, Kirkpatrick sent out an email making it official. “I love this state, and I’ve worked hard all my life to put Arizona first,” she...
  • Honor those who gave their lives keeping America safe.

    05/25/2015 6:54:05 AM PDT · by SandRat · 6 replies
    It’s time for a short American history lesson, especially appropriate on the day we honor our war dead, those killed in combat defending us. Surprisingly, Memorial Day has its genesis not in the Revolutionary War, which we fought to gain our independence from England from 1775 to 1783. Rather, it was the 20th war or conflict of the 74, so far, we as a nation have engaged in — including 20 named against Native Americans. It was our own Civil War, fought from 1861 to 1865. America’s Civil War was a bloody affair and there was nothing civil about it....

    The setting aside of critical habitat for the endangered jaguar in New Mexico was an “unlawful, arbitrary and capricious” action by federal authorities and needs to be overturned, a new lawsuit says. ... In March 2014, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service set aside nearly 1,200 square miles along the U.S.-Mexico border as habitat essential for the conservation of the jaguar. Federal officials acknowledged last year when they made the designation that no female jaguars or breeding had been documented in the U.S. in more than 50 years. ...

Cory Gardner, both Colorado Republicans, said in a letter to Interior Secretary Sally Jewell. ... Colowyo Mine employs 220 people in Moffat and Rio Blanco counties and has a payroll of about $20 million, Tipton wrote to Jewell, asking that Interior react quickly to a federal court ruling that could force closure of the mine. “The adverse effects of shutting down this mine go beyond the jobs at the mine that would be...

    An Arizona woman was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison on Thursday for running over her husband with the family car because he failed to vote in the 2012 presidential election, court officials said. Holly Nicole Solomon, 31, pleaded guilty in April to two counts of aggravated assault under a plea agreement with prosecutors over the incident at a parking lot in Gilbert, a southeastern suburb of Phoenix. Police said Solomon was upset with her husband, Daniel Solomon, in the days following the Nov. 6 re-election of U.S. President Barack Obama and believed the family would face hardship from...

This dominance of the three major means of affecting the culture and of transmittinevan+sfvrc+promog information is indisputable and, of course, damaging. Obviously we at Rage fight against the leftist control of the news media, but we also recognize the need to fight against their monopoly in these other arenas as well. As it happens, conservatives aren’t as serious as “everybody knows” they are, and many wish that there were some kind...

    A plan that will close nearly 2,000 miles of public roads that have previously been open for use by the people of Mesa County is creating a public backlash against the Grand Junction field office of the federal Bureau of Land Management. The BLM’s resource management plans (RMP) regulate the access and types of traffic allowed on roads on public lands. Road maintenance and seasonal closures are also detailed in such plans. But the most recent RMP in Mesa County indicates the BLM’s intent to limit access to public roads which have traditionally been open to motorized, horse, and foot...

Nor is sequestration, despite its irrationality and mindlessness, the mortal danger although it will harm the forces

    It took Republicans three tries to win control of the US Senate and consolidate Congress under their leadership. In the end, the landscape left by the 2008 Democratic triumph left them uniquely vulnerable in the sixth-year midterm of an unpopular presidency. The tables will turn in 2016, warns National Journal’s Charlie Cook, as the gains of 2010 will make Republicans highly vulnerable to losing control of the Senate once again: Today, The Cook Political Report puts two Republican-held seats in the “Toss Up” category—the open seat in Florida and Kirk in Illinois. That toss-up column will certainly grow as...

    Shortly after Osama bin Laden met his demise at the hands of U.S. special forces, Michael Mukasey opined in the pages of the Wall Street Journal that harsh interrogation tactics had been key to identifying a courier, which, in turn, led to locating bin Laden’s compound. Such an assessment, from a highly respected former attorney general, was bound to be influential. Indeed, the CIA’s enhanced-interrogation program, used on a select few high-level al-Qaeda detainees following the 9/11 attacks, had figured prominently in Mukasey’s confirmation hearings. He had, at the behest of Congress, thoroughly reviewed the program upon taking the reins...

That day, Army buck private Sam Rumore was heading south in battle-ravaged Germany heading for a “repo depot,” after landing at Bremerhaven. I didn’t see any combat,” Rumore told the Herald/Review. But what he saw was what Hitler and his Nazi henchmen ended up doing to Germany, causing the allied powers to lay waste to the Third Reich, which Hitler had once boasted would last a thousand years.

Stating that conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq have put a tremendous strain on the nation’s military force, Edison pointed to five dimensions of strength — emotional, family, physical, spiritual and social. “All these attributes that we talk about are right here in the sacred Scriptures,” Edison said

    Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has decided to troll conservatives and therefore will run for re-election in 2016. Despite his long tenure in Washington, however, he may be in “a lot of trouble,” according to a new PPP poll. While his numbers are perfectly fine among self-identified Right-leaning moderates, the fact that conservatives are angry with him and jumping ship might jeopardize his chances of winning a sixth term. “It's his struggles on the right that have McCain imperiled,” the poll finds. “He gets narrowly positive reviews from both 'somewhat conservative' (51/37) and moderate (50/44) Republicans.

The suspect ran into a bedroom, started jumping on the bed, took off all her clothes, started shouting “am I pretty?” and refused to leave.

    The IRS documents released by the government watchdog group on April 9 revealed that the senator, along with Senator Carl Levin, pressured the agency to go after political nonprofits – which turned out to be overwhelmingly conservative non-profits.. A May 1, 2013, email exchange between Lois Lerner and other top IRS staffers revealed that 11 days prior to Lerner’s admission in a ABA meeting that the IRS had “inappropriately” targeted conservative groups, she met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen....

    Last year, as part of his Imperial decree of amnesty for illegal immigrants, resident Barack Obama created the White House Task Force on New Americans, whose goal is to vastly increase the numbers and rates at which immigrants were naturalized and granted citizenship. This Task Force works hand-in-hand with the George Soros-funded, open borders-promoting Migration Policy Institute, as well as the openly racist group La Raza, a Mexican nationalist organization that has called for the mass murder of white Americans and a return of the western states to Mexico. The Task Force is headed up by one Cecilia Munoz, Obama’s...

    PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Are they clever ads with a play on words, or are they just outright sexually-explicit? A valley store's new billboards are at the center of controversy, and Valley Metro has already pulled them off their trains. The ads are nothing new; chances are you've seen them on trucks or billboards around Phoenix. The owner of My Sister's Closet said she entered into an advertising agreement, the ads were approved, so she was stunned when the ads were abruptly pulled. "Wanted: One Night Stand, Buy a Bigger Chest, Make a Booty Call," my sister's closet thought these ads...

    It may be early in the process for 2016 campaigns, but that’s not stopping political operatives from scurrying to suppress promising potential John McCain Senate seat challengers from pressing forward. Cue critics of Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward. “Only the political elite would make listening to voter concerns a bad thing,” Ward told Breitbart News concerning attacks coming against her from political and media sources. Ward recently began an exploratory committee to challenge McCain, now seeking his sixth 6-year term, for election to the U.S. Senate.
  • Desalination plants aren't a good solution for California drought

    As surely as the hot, dry Santa Ana winds bring blue skies to the coast and wildfires to the hills, severe California droughts bring calls to build desalination plants up and down the seashore. All that ocean water, begging to be converted to fresh and pumped into our pipelines, would solve our water supply problems instantly and permanently, boosters say. In the coming months, the drumbeat will only get louder. That's not only because the current drought is the longest and most severe in memory, but because a $1-billion desalination project scheduled to start operating in Carlsbad this fall will...

    The flow of illegal immigrants has dropped to its lowest level in years judging by the number being apprehended along the border, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Friday as he sought to be more transparent about his department’s performance. Mr. Johnson said the drop is coming despite an improving economy, which generally draws more illegal migrants. Instead, the secretary said, a boost in manpower and technology along the southwestern border, coupled with public messages in Latin America discouraging would-be migrants from making the journey have helped turn the tide. Through the first six months of fiscal year 2015, which...
