    Three years after a presidential election that came down to 77,000 votes in three Midwestern battlegrounds, Democrats and Republicans are eyeing a much larger battlefield ahead of the 2020 contests, one that stretches from the picturesque coastline of rural Maine to the high desert of Arizona. Both President Trump’s campaign and the Democrats vying to replace him are scrutinizing a political map in flux, one in which attitudes and alignments are shifting and new regions are coming into play.As many as a dozen states could be up for grabs next year as economic and international uncertainty pairs with a cauldron...
  • LET Exclusive – Is Maricopa County Controlled by George Soros?

    Law Enforcement Today ^ | 05/14/19 | James E. Lewis
    George Soros contributed at least $2 million to the campaign of Paul Penzone when he challenged Sheriff Joe Arpaio two years ago. Maricopa County and the Phoenix metroplex are large areas… but this was still an election for a county sheriff. You have to wonder why the notorious billionaire would invest so much in Penzone’s campaign. But to answer that question, you only need look as far as Penzone’s Chief of Staff and Special Counsel, Stephanie Fleischman Cherny.
  • Supreme Court rejects ex-Sheriff Joe Arpaio challenge to criminal prosecutor appointment

    Washington Examiner ^ | April 29, 2019 | Melissa Quinn
    Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio lost his bid at the Supreme Court on Monday challenging a lower court’s appointment of a special prosecutor in his criminal case. Arpaio earned a national reputation for harsh conditions in the Arizona prisons he ran for a quarter century, before losing his 2016 reelection bid. Arpaio was found in criminal contempt of court in 2017 for not following a judge’s orders to stop traffic patrols that targeted illegal immigrants. President Trump then pardoned the former Maricopa County sheriff. Arpaio, 86, is now attempting to vacate his conviction. At issue in the Supreme Court...

    Full headline: Fallout continues over heavily armed FBI raid of Roger Stone: ‘No reason except to intimidate’ and ‘poison jury pool’Fallout is continuing from the FBI’s decision to send 29 heavily armed agents in 19 vehicles to arrest political operative and longtime Trump associate Roger Stone last week following an indictment by special counsel Robert Mueller. “I’ve been busting down doors for 50 Years, and I’ve never sent that many units, not even to the baddest murderers,” former Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio told The Western Journal. In addition to being sheriff of a county that grew to more...

    The Arizona Republican Party announced Thursday they will have an independent audit to review the Maricopa County Recorder's Office following the midterm elections. According to Arizona's GOP, the investigation will examine and report the Recorder's decision to open an emergency voting center before Election Day, voting procedures and challenges, ballot counting, results reporting process, and allegations of fraud in the election. In the press release, the GOP stated that they hope the audit will produce a fair, factually-based report that will help them understand what happened in the elections and address the voter concerns. AZ GOP's Chairman Jonathan Lines has...

    The Maricopa County vote recorder employing controversial vote-counting practices was the defense attorney for an accused Mexican cartel gun straw purchaser. Maricopa County recorder Adrian Fontes defended Manuel Celis-Acosta in 2011 after an arrest for involvement in the Fast and Furious government gun-running scandal. “Before he was elected in 2016 as Maricopa County recorder, Adrian Fontes was an attorney representing clients in narco-terrorism and firearms scandals,” Fox News reported. Celis-Acosta reportedly transferred thousands of guns to the Sinaloa Cartel. This included the firearm used to kill Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. https://www.breitbart.com/midterm-election/2018/11/10/pro-bernie-sanders-arizona-vote-recorder-attorney-fast-furious-gun-buyer/

    I left for vacation on Wednesday somewhat pleased about the election results, all things considered. I've been checking back in with the news periodically and am increasingly disturbed by what's going on in Florida and Arizona. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Democrats never accept defeat, ever. If I read my Twitter feed, it's incredible the amount of fraud and ballot stuffing going on in Broward county in detailed specifics. But, if I wade into leftist Twitter, it's like a different universe. "No evidence of voter fraud", "the president is undermining our elections", etc. It's as flabbergasting as it is...

  • Rachel Mitchell expertly eviscerates the case against Kavanaugh

    10/03/2018 7:27:33 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 65 replies
    The decision by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley to have Arizona sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell question Christine Blasey Ford may well be remembered as a brilliant — and quite possibly pivotal — choice. No doubt, allowing Mitchell to ask questions instead of Republican senators served a defensive purpose, avoiding the spectacle of a bunch of old, white men publicly questioning a woman who says she was a victim of sexual abuse. But Mitchell’s methodical, genial approach left many supporters of Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh deeply frustrated, with some complaining that Mitchell was “not laying a...

    The Washington post has reached a new level of parody during the Kavanaugh hearings. Everything is worth printing if it meets their end goal, which is to scuttle the guy.Their latest is an article titled “Experts question GOP prosecutor’s memo on Christine Blasey Ford.”There’s just one problem. Not a single person they cite actually has the expertise to rebut a career sex crimes prosecutor like Mitchell nor do they even try. It’s all just personal attacks. “As a former prosecutor myself, I’ve come to no conclusion other than the conclusion that there needs to be more facts to come to...

    We’ve been told that all women who make claims of sexual assault MUST be believed, no matter the evidence, or lack of evidence. On Friday, Sharyn Bovat, a self-described DOD whistle-blower, said she was sexually assaulted by a “big donor” to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., in 1990, and to make matters worse, Feinstein allegedly covered it up.

    Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, the aristocratic leftist from Rhode Island, put on one of the sleaziest displays ever seen in the history of American politics the other day. His revolting insistence that Kavanaugh and his Catholic teenage classmates, were in fact referring to deviant behaviors such as 3 ways and rapes rather than innocent behaviors of teenage boys like farting and the F word - was revolting to its core. He must be defeated. Good news: he has an opponent that some sources suggest could be internally polling as high as 40% to Whitehouse's 48%, with 12% undecideds in Rhode Island....

    "I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the committee," Rachel Mitchell writes. No reasonable prosecutor would bring sexual assault charges against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh based on the public evidence, the prosecutor whom Republicans hired to ask the questions during last week's Senate hearing said in a memo to senators. In the memo, which was sent to all Republican senators and was obtained Sunday night by NBC News, Rachel Mitchell, the deputy county attorney in charge of the Special Victims Division in Maricopa County, Arizona, said her "bottom line"...
  • Still Lacking Evidence Of Sexual Assault, Democrats Now Want Kavanaugh Investigated For Perjury

    Democrats still lack evidence to support sexual misconduct accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Democrats demanded an FBI investigation into the Kavanaugh accusations but many now claim that the FBI’s investigation is inadequate. Some Democrats now want Kavanaugh investigated for perjury. Still lacking corroborating evidence of disputed sexual misconduct accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, some Democrats now want Kavanaugh investigated for perjury in the latest iteration of their months-long campaign to derail his confirmation. The perjury push comes as Democrats still lack corroborating evidence to support professor Christine Blasey Ford‘s claim that Kavanaugh tried to drunkenly force...

    "What you are seeing is the collapse of institutions in this country. It's really, really concerning," Nunes said Saturday evening on Fox News. "When you take a Supreme Court justice and you have senators talking about high school yearbooks, you are watching the collapse of the Senate. Collapse of the republic. It's really, really dangerous." Nunes, who is chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Feinstein erred on two fronts. "She had a responsibility to share that with Republicans. And second, she should have made sure that the FBI knew about that as they were doing an additional background check,"...

    Fox News ^ | September 30, 2018 | Dan Gainor
    Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh was targeted for demonization in a disgusting display of media malpractice this past week, as he was depicted in almost every disparaging way possible in coverage of uncorroborated sexual misconduct allegations against him. Comments in the media about the judge included: “MIGHT Be A Serial Rapist,” “drunk,” “aggressive,” “mean” and “probably guilty.” And Kavanaugh was compared to convicted sex offender Bill Cosby. Journalists didn’t just set the narrative, they marketed it, using similar phrasings to emphasize how the audience was supposed to think in negative terms about the conservative judge nominated by President Trump....

    Arizona’s Republican U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake has announced he’s not running for reelection, so several candidates have jumped into the open race to replace him. There are currently three frontrunners. GOP Rep. Martha McSally, a combat pilot who served in the U.S. Air Force, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and former Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward. Ward made a name for herself launching an unsuccessful conservative challenge to Sen. John McCain in 2016.McSally is the darling of the GOP establishment.

    Kelli Ward suggested Saturday that the statement issued Friday by U.S. Sen. John McCain's family about ending treatment for brain cancer was intended to hurt her U.S. Senate campaign. McCain died Saturday hours after her remarks. Ward, a conservative former state senator from Lake Havasu City, is in a three-way race for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination in Tuesday's Arizona primary. Ward wrote on Facebook that "I think they wanted to have a particular narrative that they hope is negative to me." Her comment was made under a Facebook post by one of her campaign staffers, who questioned if it...
