    Phoenix mayor plans to rename a street that is named after Robert E. Lee. Residents do not want to see the name of their street changed. 75 percent of people living on a Phoenix street need to approve of a name change before it's made. But the council will vote on changing that, giving the elected officials the power to make changes without residential approval.

    New Times has also learned that Sterling allegedly wanted to kill Mighty Morphin Power Rangers actor Jason David Frank (a special guest at this year’s Phoenix Comicon) and claimed he had a vendetta against the star. Phoenix P.D. arrested Sterling at the Phoenix Convention Center. He was in possession of three handguns, a shotgun, a combat knife, pepper spray, and throwing stars.

    Crews have started to dismantle some of the tents in a controversial outdoor jail complex in Phoenix that helped make former Sheriff Joe Arpaio a national law enforcement figure. One of the five jail yards within "Tent City" has already been completely dismantled, and workers on Wednesday were in the process of tearing down a second yard.
  • James Comey Is the Latest Victim of the Clintons

    Why did President Donald Trump fire FBI Director James Comey now? The answer, as my Washington Examiner colleague Byron York has argued, is that he waited until after his impeccably apolitical deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, was in place as Comey's direct superior. Rosenstein was confirmed April 25, and his memorandum titled "Restoring Public Confidence in the FBI" was appended to Trump's firing letter exactly two weeks later. In that document, Rosenstein characterized Comey's July 5 statement on the FBI's investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's secret email system as "a textbook example of what federal prosecutors and...
  • Comey: Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting Showed DOJ Couldn’t Credibly Investigate Hillary

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 5-3-2017 | Cameron Cawthorne
    FBI Director James Comey testified Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee that the airport tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton last June showed the Justice Department could not credibly investigate Hillary Clinton's email practices. Clinton and Lynch met privately in Phoenix after both of them realized they were on the same airport tarmac, immediately raising questions about the independence of the Justice Department that was in the process of investigating then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server. "Our conversation was a great deal about grandchildren, it was primarily social about our...

    The Arizona Daily Star (Tucson) ^ | March 5, 2017 | Murphy Woodhouse
    Imagine a dust storm, driven by monsoon downbursts, building near the Maricopa-Pinal county line. There are thousands of Interstate 10 motorists and hundreds of thousands of Phoenix exurb residents who would probably want to know about such a storm before the stinging, blinding wall of sand arrives. But does all of metro Phoenix need to get the alert? Likely not, but the National Weather Service’s Ken Waters told the dozens of attendees at the annual dust-storm workshop in Coolidge last week that that’s exactly what would happen with the existing cellphone warning system in place for dust events. “If I’m...

    Progressives eat up the Trump=Hitler narrative to the point where there is a billboard in downtown Phoenix, which is heavy on such imagery. Santa Monica-based activist Karen Fiorito designed the billboard, which has the president in between two nuclear explosions and dollar signs imitating swastikas used by the Nazi Party. Fiorito says she’s worried about money and politics, along with the direction of the country under Trump. Yeah, that goes for you and every other voter who cast a ballot for a losing candidate in a presidential election. The back of Fiorito’s billboard shows a bunch of hands using sign...
  • Phoenix Diverting Money From Schools to Large Developers

    For years, the City of Phoenix has been quietly diverting money away from schools and giving it to large developers for projects like new apartments. It's plain and simple corporate welfare and I've consistently voted against this practice. This tax transfer is called a GPLET. (Government Property Lease Excise Tax) Worse yet, as the Mayor and Council voted to take these needed monies from schools, they also set up a "lease scheme" allowing Phoenix to profit. See my report below on how Phoenix profited by approximately $45 million while denying schools of critical funding.

    The dots are slowly being connected regarding the Obama surveillance scandal, and it’s not looking good for Barack. The evidence is mounting there was a massive conspiracy to hurt President Trump. On June 27th of 2016, Bill Clinton met secretly with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. This scandal, with so many unanswered questions, has not been resolved. Lynch did recuse herself from the Clinton email scandal. However new evidence suggests that meeting wasn’t about whether Hillary would go to prison, but one with a more insidious intent. Right after this meeting, Loretta Lynch...

    Remember back when the Clinton email investigation was in progress, and the FBI Director James Comey found Clinton not guilty…she had no intent to break the law while using her home server to distribute classified information? Remember how we had to just take it and accept the ruling, when all along we knew it was a lie. We did take it, as we had no choice. Now we are looking at a much less benign situation with Jeff Sessions having several insignificant meetings with the Russian Ambassador, but it is being blown way out of proportion by the Democrats. They...

    The Phoenix City Council on Wednesday turned down a petition to adopt sanctuary status for immigrants following a contentious and emotional discussion that ended with chants against the council. The council voted after hours of testimony from about 30 people that often became rowdy and emotional. A majority of people who spoke before the council favored adopting the policy, and many chanted "shame on you" after the council voted against it.

    After four years, Phoenix has cut ties with a law firm that lobbied on the city’s behalf at the state Legislature. The politics involving former Gov. Jan Brewer played a role in the votes of at least two councilmembers. Many roll-call votes at Phoenix City Council meetings are straightforward, but when they involve contracts with consultants and lobbyists, the roll call typically slows as Councilmen Jim Waring and Sal DiCiccio voice their ongoing opposition to such deals. That’s what happened on Dec. 14.

    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...

    SAN FRANCISCO — Embattled biotech startup Theranos Inc. has promoted senior litigation counsel David Taylor to acting general counsel. Taylor's already got a full plate. "He's got a mess on his hands," said Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro partner Robert Carey in Phoenix, one of many lawyers suing the blood diagnostics company for alleged consumer fraud. Carey's suit is one of six similar, separate suits consolidated in the Northern District of California. Aside from that litigation surplus, Theranos is being investigated for investor and consumer fraud by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice, respectively. The...
