    The multi-year drought may be easing thanks to recent storms, but scientists suggest that Lake Mead and Lake Powell, reservoirs on the Colorado River, may not refill “in our lifestimes,” according to the Los Angeles Times. The reservoirs have been dwindling over many years — not just due to the drought, but also due to demand that has increased over the many decades since the dams were built, and due to decreased rainfall in recent times.

    Migrant patients are overwhelming a border town's sole hospital, straining medical resources and placing the facility on the brink of collapse without sufficient funding to accommodate the influx of people. Dr. Robert Transchel, the president and CEO of Yuma, Arizona's Yuma Regional Medical Center, told co-hsot Rachel Campos-Duffy Sunday on "Fox & Friends Weekend" that the problem is nothing new. "It's been a long journey," he said. "We've been at this for well over a year now. We tracked our uncompensated care for a period of over six months, and we calculated that we've provided over $20 million in uncompensated...

    Kari Lake, the fiery former news anchor who narrowly lost a race for governor of Arizona last year, said in an interview that she is considering a Republican campaign for the U.S. Senate in Arizona next year. She has also scheduled campaign-style events this month in Iowa — home to her party’s first presidential nominating contest — that typically signal White House ambitions. Additionally, she is still contesting her November defeat in the Arizona governor’s race. “Here’s your headline: Kari Lake is on the warpath,” Ms. Lake said in an interview Thursday night. Seated in the corner booth of a...

    The migrant surge is overwhelming a border town’s only hospital, the facility’s director told Fox News. Yuma Regional Medical Center – the only hospital within 60 miles – has been forced to delay residents’ care to treat scores of illegal immigrants, many of them pregnant women. Meanwhile, the hospital is racking up millions in unpaid expenses. Over six months, caring for migrants has cost the 406-bed facility at least $20 million with no one to foot the bill, according to the center’s president and CEO, Dr. Robert Trenschel. “That’s an unsustainable model to have that unexpected expense without any revenue...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., recently commented on the viral clip of her speaking with Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., during the extended vote to install Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., as Speaker of the House. The congresswoman admitted to CNN anchor John Berman that the conversation between her and Gosar revealed their "alignment" on not wanting McCarthy to have the leadership role, though she declared she finds it "uncomfortable" serving with Gosar, and other MAGA-identifying members of Congress because they engage in "stochastic terrorism" against her.
  • How the IRS Enables the Border Invasion: Tax deductible nonprofits help illegal migrants enter the United States.

    Last year, bills to stop funding non-profits that help illegal aliens enter this country were introduced in the House and Senate. The Stop Federal Funding for Human Trafficking and Smuggling Act and the Protecting Federal Funds from Human Trafficking and Smuggling Act have failed to make headway. Meanwhile, the problem has only gotten worse. Such bills would not be necessary if the IRS were doing its job. Instead, the IRS, which consistently targets conservative nonprofits, has refused to address the problem. The mass invasion of the United States of America would not be possible without a nonprofit sector that has...

    SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – At a standing-room-only event Sunday, Kari Lake signaled she is not giving up her legal battle to install her as the rightful Arizona governor instead of Democrat Katie Hobbs. Lake held a Save Arizona rally at Orange Tree Golf Club in Scottsdale with over a thousand in attendance, assuring her supporters she intended to fight until the “victorious end.” The mainstream media recently ran stories claiming Lake was switching her focus to running against Senator Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ). Lake focused her entire speech on election fraud. “They thought they could steal it and we would just go...

    The Arizona chapter of Americans Against Mail In Voting has launched a campaign to recall Democrat Gov. Katie Hobbs, citing 2022 election discrepancies resulting in a questionable outcome. "The AAMV umbrella was born on November 8, 2022 after witnessing hundreds of election discrepancies nationwide," Executive Director Zachery Tyler told Just the News. "These irregularities and seemingly intentional interferences have come at the cost of the American people's faith and trust in our election process." Arizona GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake lost last year's election to then-Secretary of State Katie Hobbs but has since alleged that rampant voting irregularities in Maricopa...

    Liberty Justice Center (LJC), a “national free speech law firm,” filed an appeal against Arizona State University (ASU) Thursday after a former student was convicted of trespassing by handing out constitutions on campus, according to Friday’s press release. Tim Tizon, a now-former Arizona State University student, was arrested in March 2022 after he refused to stop passing out pamphlets of the United States constitution at ASU Tempe’s campus on behalf of the libertarian student organization Young Americans for Liberty (YAL), the press release explained. He is appealing the conviction at Maricopa County Circuit Court and is represented pro bono by...

    Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake refuses to concede to now-appointed Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs because she keeps finding evidence that the election was a hot mess and likely skewed the outcome. Her latest discovery, thanks to a freedom of information request: Some 200,000 votes in Maricopa County, which skews red, were not properly tabulated and actually failed. “Officials sabotaged Election Day. On November 8th (when 75% of votes were for @KariLake) nearly 1/4 of a MILLION voting attempts FAILED, according to the system log files that were obtained via FOIA. This is huge, folks. Huge,” she tweeted on Monday.

    Kari Lake has promised Arizona voters and concerned citizens nationwide that she will not abandon the fight for election integrity in Arizona. After numerous issues on election day, Lake vowed that she would expose the corruption that took place in Arizona during the November 2022 election. Lake ran for governor against Katie Hobbs, the acting Secretary of State, who refused to recuse herself, instead insisting that she was qualified to oversee an election in which her name was on the ballot for the highest office in her state. Hobb’s role certainly created a conflict of interest in her ability to...

    Arizona Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego on Monday plans to launch a challenge against Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, CBS News has learned. Gallego, an outspoken liberal Democrat, has long been critical of Sinema, who dropped her party identification as a Democrat to be an independent just after the party won the Senate last year. The Arizona senator still aligns herself with the Senate Democratic caucus, though. Sinema said at the time that she changed her party affiliation because she "never fit neatly into any party box", but the label switch prompted an immediate backlash from many Democrats, including Gallego…

    Vice President and border czar Kamala Harris won't visit the border during her trip to Arizona Thursday. The vice president will travel to Tonopah, Arizona, which is about 100 miles away from the southern border with Mexico. Harris was given the task of finding the root cause of mass migration and the crossing of hundreds of thousands of migrants, but has visited the border just once since she took office, in 2021. Instead of stopping at the border, Harris is instead scheduled to attend the groundbreaking of a 125-mile-long transmission line that will transport wind and solar energy through the...

    Richard Blodgett, a single father, was jailed on a drug charge when a worker from Arizona’s child welfare agency delivered the news: His son was brain dead and on life support — just days after being taken into state custody. Blodgett screamed, cried and screamed some more. Jakob was his only son, a “darn cute,” curious 9-year-old who loved remote control cars and video games. Blodgett is now struggling to understand how it happened. A medical examiner listed Jakob’s death in late December as natural with complications from diabetes, a condition he was diagnosed with as a toddler. Specifically, Type...

Lake, who rumors say is considering running for the seat but has not confirmed this, polled at 36...

    Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) lectured Americans while in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting, urging them to accept amnesty for the nation’s 11 to 22 million illegal aliens. During a panel discussion alongside Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ), and others, Salazar said some form of amnesty is necessary for illegal aliens living across the United States. She said: We need to also give dignity to those people who are in the country and those are the people that I represent. We’re talking about 13 to 15 million people — who are, most of them, Hispanics,...
