    McCain had a private meeting with FBI Director James Comey to hand him a dossier on Trump in a ploy to make him look bad, claims Daniel McAdams, executive director of Ron Paul Institute. Now McCain is attempting to disassociate himself from it, he added. US Senator John McCain said last week's leak of an unverified report on Russia having compromising information on Donald Trump was “totally wrong” and that someone must be held responsible for it. RT: John McCain, who passed the unverified information to the FBI himself now claims that those behind its leak must be responsible for it....

    PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey's decision to again take for other uses state gas tax money intended to help cities and counties build and repair roads is getting a cold reception from some in the Legislature. The Republican governor's budget proposal for the year starting July 1 eliminates $86.5 million in highway spending in the current year, a decision likely to spur a fight with lawmakers from both parties who have been seeking a permanent stop to shifts of cash for road work to other uses. Legislation that would bar the practice and require gas tax money only...

Due to side effects, she was hospitalized Monday and is expected to be discharged this week, UC officials said.

Leonard Penuelas-Escobar, 37, “is a known drug user but has no criminal history that we can find,” Col. Frank Milstead, the director of DPS, said during a news conference. “We showed that he attempted to cross the border on one occasion and was turned back,” Milstead said. “We also have information that leads us to believe that in 2007 he was actually a federal police officer...

    U.S. Sen. John McCain has been known to hold a grudge, but there's one grudge the Republican from Arizona has been holding for nearly five years now. It stems back to comments U.S. Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, made during the 2008 presidential race, when McCain and his veep pick, then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, were running a heated campaign against then-Sens. Barack Obama and Joe Biden. In a lengthy New Republic interview with McCain published Tuesday, McCain compares some of the rhetoric his campaign was using against Obama ("palling around with terrorists") to rhetoric directed at his campaign.

The first was the man who was headed to California with his wife when he saw the Trooper, Edward Anderson, with an attacker on top of him, pounding Anderson’s head into the pavement, Trayvon Martin style. His ability to quickly assess the situation and take action is somewhat remarkable. The event occurred at milepost 89 on I-10, at about 4:30 a.m. There are no street lights in this remote area.  That...

Trooper Edward Andersson, a 27-year veteran of the Department of Public Safety, was shot in the right shoulder and chest in what authorities called an ambush and was in serious but stable condition after surgery at a Goodyear hospital.

    John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., are set to release a bipartisan bill to increase sanctions on Russia over the country's interference in the U.S. presidential election. The Countering Russian Hostilities Act of 2017, whose chief sponsor is Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, will depute at an afternoon press conference, Politico reports. The bill is intended as a message that the GOP wishes to repudiate Russia for its hostile actions despite Republican president-elect Donald Trump has publicly questioned the country's involvement in the hack of the Democratic National Committee.

    Nearly all of California's reservoirs are far above their historical average volumes for this date of the year. This is somewhat due to the La Nina, and it's a La Nina heading OUT of an El Nino, not into one, so a subsequent drought is unlikely. Reservoir levels are so high, that many are approaching their typical April peaks. And the snowcaps are already approaching their average post-winter depths. Shasta Lake, the largest reservoir, is at 81% capacity and 126% of average. Terminus reservoir is at 321% of normal. Statewide snowcaps are at 160% of normal for the date, and...

    In another positive sign for the beloved A-10, Air Force maintainers at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona have outfitted the Warthog with an upgrade for combat search and rescue missions (CSAR). Dubbed the lightweight airborne recovery system, the upgrade helps A-10 pilots "communicate more effectively with individuals on the ground such as downed pilots, pararescuemen and joint terminal attack controllers," according to an Air Force statement. Of all the fixed-wing aircraft in the US Air Force's inventory, no plane carries out CSAR missions like the A-10. CSAR missions jump off with little warning and often involve going deep into...

    Sen. Jeff Flake has vocally criticized his party’s freshly elected president, raised little money, and backed a moderate approach to an immigration overhaul. In other words, the first-term senator from Arizona has all but begged a Donald Trump-like Republican to run against him. Now, his friends and allies fear that’s exactly what will happen — with no guarantee that the incumbent lawmaker will win. To many GOP officials, no Republican senator is more vulnerable in a primary next year than Flake. The 54-year-old, according to one strategist who reviewed polling data last month, is less popular among likely GOP primary...

The designations further cement Obama’s environmental legacy as one of the most consequential — and contentious — in presidential history. He now has invoked his executive power to create national monuments 29 times during his tenure, establishing or expanding protections for more than 550 million acres of federal lands and waters.

    A pair of Christian artists may face several months in prison for refusing to make wedding invitations for a same-sex ceremony due to an Arizona city ordinance. Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski of Brush & Nib Studio are appealing a court decision from a September ruling against their lawsuit, claiming that a Phoenix city ordinance violates their freedom of expression and freedom of religion. Duka and Koski are being represented by the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative law firm that often tackles religious liberty cases. ADF attorney Kristen Waggoner, who is representing the two artists, said in an interview last...

    SIERRA VISTA — As the Kmart store prepares to close its doors this month, concerns have grown that its affiliate, Sears, could do the same thing. But Sears Holdings has said it is committed to continuing its operations at The Mall at Sierra Vista and has no plans to leave. In a statement to the Herald/Review, Howard Riefs, director of corporate communications, said, “It’s business as usual at the store and we will continue to serve our members and customers, as we have for the last 17 years.” However, around half of the approximate 87,000 square feet space that Sears...

    County officials in western Colorado have regularly lambasted Planning 2.0 and this week, Garfield County joined in with five other counties in the western United States considering suing to halt the rule, which they have criticized as a central-planning measure. The BLM this month announced that the rule was final and on Monday, Garfield County agreed to spend as much as $40,000 with the Texas-based property-rights organization, the American Stewards of Liberty, to halt it. While Garfield County is taking an active role, Mesa County officials are looking to Congress and a Republican administration under President-elect Donald Trump to deal...

    When John D. Anderson reached his battle station in the USS Arizona's No. 4 turret that morning, he realized the gigantic guns could do nothing against the swarms of attacking Japanese airplanes. But his twin brother, Delbert "Jake" Anderson, was manning an antiaircraft gun out on deck, and was in the thick of the action. "He needs help," John told his turret commander, and asked if could join his brother. Both men were 24. The sons of a judge, they were born in Verona, N.D., in 1917. Both had joined the Navy in 1936. John was a boatswain's mate second...

    A pair of Arizona-based Christian artists is challenging the local law that threatens to fine and imprison them for refusing to make same-sex wedding invitations. Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski, owners of Brush & Nib Studio in Phoenix, lost a case at trial level which accused them of violating a local ordinance that protects homosexuals from discrimination, Fox News reported. The ordinance also prevents the business owners from publicly explaining their convictions or even defending their decision lest they face jail time for that as well. This apparent violation of the First Amendment protection of free speech is at the...

    If someone told U.S. Air Force Capt. Nathan Tilton one year ago that he would have a hand in the upcoming presidential inauguration, he would’ve called them a liar. “From the time I was given the heads up to now, still feels quite surreal,” said Tilton. The Sierra Vista native joined the Joint Task Force-National Capital Region (JTF-NCR) in support of the 58th Presidential Inauguration, which will take place Jan. 20. The task force is charged with coordinating all military ceremonial support for the inaugural period. Tilton is the operations officer of the task force’s Joint Team of Records. “Our...

    If you’ve shaken that present with your name on it under the Christmas tree, and you think it’s the drone you have been asking for, prepare to register that new toy with the Federal Aviation Administration. Beginning last December, owners of Unmanned Aerial Systems weighing a half pound or more were required to register the device online with the federal agency, or risk civil penalties up to $27,500 and possible criminal charges that carry fines of up to $250,000 and/or imprisonment for three years.

    WND has learned that a news conference has been scheduled for Dec. 15 to make public the final conclusions of the investigation by the Cold Case Posse in Arizona’s Maricopa County under Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was defeated Nov. 8 in his bid for a seventh term.

Gallups confirmed, however, that a press conference regarding the birth certificate has been scheduled for Dec. 15 at 4...
