    Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) said Sunday on MSNBC that Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) did not “care” about black people. According to Waters, they were unwilling to ditch the filibuster to pass voting legislation.

    A Republican candidate for Arizona governor dropped out of the race hours before former President Donald Trump was set to speak at a rally with her top rival. Kimberly Yee released a statement Saturday saying she will instead run for reelection as state treasurer. "I am withdrawing from the Governor's race to stand for re-election as Treasurer. There is additional work to be done as the Treasurer of Arizona. As I transition my campaign, I want to thank my supporters and invite them to join me in my re-election efforts for Arizona Treasurer," she said in a tweet. Yee did...

    Former President Donald Trump on Saturday promised that he would be staging a “comeback,” his clearest indication yet that he plans to run for the White House in 2024. He said it would be a “comeback the likes of which nobody has ever seen.” He made the pledge at his first rally speech of the 2022 election season. He also blasted “tyrannical” vaccine mandates, runaway inflation and a national crime wave in a brick-by-brick takedown of President Biden’s first years in office. In the nearly two-hour speech in Florence, Arizona, he piled on top of the mounting defeats for Mr....

    Rep. Ruben Gallego isn’t mincing words about Jan. 6, 2021, rioters at the Capitol, saying in a new “Daily Show” interview: “F--- them.” “When it comes to insurrectionists? F--- them. I don’t give a f---,” the Arizona Democrat said in a clip airing Thursday on the Comedy Central show. Gallego’s comments were featured as part of a segment of “Jordan Klepper Fingers the Pulse” on the anniversary of the deadly riot at the Capitol, when a mob of supporters of then-President Trump stormed the building as Congress met to certify President Biden’s Electoral College win. “Look, I was scared for...

    Former President Donald Trump ripped into outgoing Republican Arizona Governor Doug Ducey on Friday after “hearing rumors” that Ducey may run for the U.S. Senate. Trump wrote in a statement, “Rumors are that Doug Ducey, the weak RINO Governor from Arizona, is being pushed by Old Crow Mitch McConnell to run for the U.S. Senate. He will never have my endorsement or the support of MAGA Nation!”

    What exactly would you say you do here? It’s the classic line from the film Office Space. That line should be directed at Joe Biden because the man is just a waste of space at this point. The only successful part of his trip to the Hill was that he didn’t trip going up the steps. Biden made one last-ditch effort to get support to tweak the filibuster rules to ram through the Democrat’s shoddy elections bill. It’s not about the integrity of our elections. The bill federalizes the races and makes sure the tilt is always to the Left....

    Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) took to the Senate floor on Thursday and delivered a speech that could be described as having a little something for everyone. There was, however, one little something that was much bigger than all the rest: her steadfast resolve about not getting rid of the filibuster. Knowing what the crux of this speech was going to mean for the future of the Republic, I really wanted to love it. Sinema is my senator, and so far has been an ongoing surprise for conservatives here in the Grand Canyon State. She seems to grasp the true purple...

    The Washington Times ^ | January 9, 2022
    The December 2010 murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry exposed the bungled “Fast and Furious” investigation, in which agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives allowed criminals to buy guns with the intention of tracking the weapons. But the agency lost most of the guns, including two that were found at the scene of Terry’s death in southern Arizona. The U.S. government has heavily pursued prosecution of the men involved in the killing. Mexico says Mexican drug gangs and former officials also participated in or failed to stop the weapons trafficking. Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration is threatening to recoup COVID-19 relief funds sent to Arizona over state provisions that it says discourage families and school districts from following federal guidance recommending face coverings in schools. At issue are two state programs meant to help schools and students but direct funding away from jurisdictions with mask requirements. Arizona’s Education Plus-Up Grant Program provides $163 million in funding to schools, but districts that require face coverings are ineligible. And its COVID-19 Educational Recovery Benefit Program provides for up to $7,000 for parents if their child’s school requires face coverings. In a...

    rizona Gov. Doug Ducey declared in January 2021 that he was “100 percent” focused on his current job and uninterested in a bid for Senate. But speculation among state political insiders that Ducey is plotting a late entry into the Senate race has escalated in recent weeks — a development that would scramble a contest that is pivotal to the battle for the Senate majority. The term-limited Republican governor, now in his last year of office, has not said anything publicly that suggests he has changed his mind. The Aug. 2 GOP primary to take on Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly...

    Last Thursday was the second anniversary of the killing of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani; while the date passed virtually unnoticed in the United States, it was a major event in the Islamic Republic of Iran, featuring numerous threats of revenge from enraged Iranian leaders. One of these stood out from the others: Soleimani’s successor as Quds Force commander declared that the revenge would come from inside the United States. Iran’s state-controlled Tasnim News Agency reported that Brigadier General Esmaeil Qaani was “delivering a speech to a ceremony in Mashhad” for the anniversary...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi have hatched a whole new scheme to federalize elections. How? They gutted a NASA bill that had already been passed by the House and had made its way to the Senate floor, stripping out the language and replacing it with language that federalizes our elections. ACLJ Director of Government Affairs Thann Bennett explained how this bill was stripped down to be used for hyper-partisan legislation: "Can you imagine being the supporters of that NASA authority bill right now when it is now being used to take over elections,...

Joe Manchin (D-WV)—her partner in inflicting intra-party pain and the only other Senate Democratic holdout for a filibuster exception—called her performance “excellent.” Biden conceded he wasn’t sure that Democrats could get something done on voting rights... Democrats left their Thursday meeting with Biden in dismay at the possibility of what might next. Sinema’s speech—timed to maximize its effect—particularly stung Democrats from Capitol Hill to the White House. Most Senate Democrats declined to...

    Arizona college students threatened to go on a second hunger strike if Congress doesn’t pass the Democrat-led voting legislation by Jan. 17. "We’re prepared to hold out indefinitely now that the holidays are over," Leila Winbury, a junior at Arizona State University, told Fox News Digital. "I have seen the consequences of a broken democracy my entire life, so we're willing to suffer the consequences of hunger striking rather than the consequences of the bill not passing." She said the next hunger strike will be "a lot bigger" than the 15-day one organized in December. "Nationwide hunger-striking, more than likely,"...

Ham, in response to criticism by New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for saying that media coverage of the congressional baseball shooting was minimal. “He’s arguing the shootings didn’t get much coverage? Pretty sure they were a huge story,” Haberman claimed. She was wrong, and Ham pointed that out. “I lived a block from the baseball field. Under 48 hours, the news vans were gone. I was on TV, live from the...

    PHOENIX — A judge says he will fine the contractor that led Arizona Republicans' 2020 election review $50,000 a day if the firm doesn’t immediately turn over public records related to the unprecedented inquiry. The judge on Thursday found Cyber Ninjas in contempt for its failure to turn over documents in response to a lawsuit filed by The Arizona Republic newspaper. It's one of two suits seeking Cyber Ninjas records under Arizona transparency laws. A lawyer for Cyber Ninjas says the company is insolvent and has laid off all employees including former CEO Doug Logan. The company maintains it is...
