  • Church volunteers say they are overwhelmed, as more migrants are dropped off by ICE in Phoenix

    PHOENIX (FOX 10) -- ICE has dropped off another busload of migrants at the corner where the Greyhound bus station is located in Phoenix. Greyhound no longer allows them to wait inside their terminal without a ticket, so hundreds of children and families sat outside in the parking lot. It's something the Valley has seen on a regular basis. Some migrants had tickets to leave town right away, but many others were taken to Valley churches, as they wait for sponsors to make travel arrangements for them. Now, churches are begging city and county officials to help them keep families...

    'Steady flow of damaging information' made him 'least-popular' prez-elect In a confidential memo outlining a plan by progressive, George Soros-funded groups to remove President Trump from office, one member of the coalition boasted of laying the “groundwork” by “driving” 673 anti-Trump media stories. The stories fed to the media by the group American Bridge throughout the 2016 campaign, the 49-page memo said, exposed “Trump’s unstable temperament, scam-filled business record, history of sexual abuse and misogyny, and racist behavior.” “The groundwork we laid will be critical to delegitimizing Trump as president,” the group declared. Another member of the coalition, touting itself...
  • The Bible and the red-hot border issue [difference between stranger, trespasser]

    I’ve noticed the Bible is being invoked by many unlikely sources in connection with the raging controversy at America’s southern border. The secular press is quoting Scripture. The Democratic Party is quoting Scripture. Radical left-wing activists are quoting Scripture. It’s always good when people consider the moral implications of public policy. So, the Bible is a good place to start exploring the right and wrong of immigration laws. But seizing on one or two out-of-context verses in the Bible does not make for the kind of comprehensive moral case you would expect of those urging various remedies, from “comprehensive immigration...

    It was the signing of one of the most important pieces of legislation for terminally ill patients in decades, and a little boy wanted to hug President Donald Trump for it. When he noticed, the president gave him three hugs back. It all happened as Trump was about to put his signature upon the “Right to Try” bill, a piece of legislation that allows terminally ill patients to access medications that aren’t yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
  • Former Douglas border agent's 'attitude of dishonesty' leads to 3-month prison term (AZ)

    Arizona Daily Star ^ | May 24, 2018 | Curt Prendergast
    Depositing $500,000 into Mexican bank accounts and repeatedly lying on background checks led to a three-month prison sentence for a former Douglas-based Border Patrol agent. Oscar Cornejo, 39, pleaded guilty in September to making false statements about previous criminal charges filed against him and about his border-crossing history, U.S. District Court records show. Cornejo, who was fired after 15 years as an agent and rising to be a supervisor with a six-figure income, also admitted to concealing assets from a bankruptcy court. But he said the $500,000 came from cyclically depositing his paychecks into ATMs in Arizona and withdrawing the...

    Entertainer Roseanne Barr went on a Twitter tear this week, urging the elderly (“old ppl”) to exercise their right to vote – and calling on other able-bodied Americans to help them do so. In a series of posts, Roseanne tweeted: “Help Register old ppl to vote! Some of them have never voted!” “let’s help old ppl register and get to the polls! Let’s help them vote! #Volunteer” “Get your churches and synagogues/temples to volunteer to help get old ppl registered to vote and take them to the polls” “Old ppl!!! Register and vote!

    I feel like the prophet Jeremiah. He was always the prophet I did not want to be when I grew up. He not only was the bearer of bad news to Israel, but he did not exactly live a mostly comfortable life – like Ezekiel and Daniel. But it’s been my misfortune to raise alarms about the devastating attacks by the Digital Cartel – Google-Facebook – on the independent media. They’ve been going on for a long time to be sure. But the scorched-earth policy began last summer – and it’s been killing sites like WND, Breitbart, Daily Caller, et...

    White House officials now say that more than 100 staff members -- at least one of them with routine access to classified material -- have failed to obtain government security clearances, mostly because of "procrastination." White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers is among what she said are about 10 percent of the 1,044 White House staff members who have not completed the FBI clearance process that produces the first level of clearance for access to classified material. Myers said she has routine access to secret material.

  • If you have left-handers in your family, your brain is different

    Arizona Daily Star ^ | Dec 23, 2016 | Thomas Bever
    About half the world's population is right-handed but has left-handed family members. Such right-handers have special neurological organization of language and thought. This has implications for therapies and our understanding of the genetic bases for language. Our brain imaging studies show that grammatical knowledge is represented differently if you have left-handers in your family. For example, when it comes to language, everyone’s brain responds to certain language tasks quickly. But that response is much stronger in the brain's right hemisphere if you have left-handers in your family and stronger in the left hemisphere if you have no left-handers in your...

    Many of the people announcing an intention to vote for Donald Trump are adding a disclaimer to distance themselves from his unsavory comments or actions of the past. I’m not going to do that. In my view Donald Trump is today a far different and better man than the one who threw his hat in the ring at the start of this election cycle. I credit that to the unprecedented level of public vilification – the “borking” of Donald Trump – he has endured and appears to have been transformed by. Whatever his worldview and the context of his past...

    Movies with no homosexual content make about six times more money at the box office than movies with some, frequent or heavy homosexual content, according to a three-year study by Movieguide and the Christian Film & Television Commission. The study is part of a detailed economic report to the entertainment industry recently released by Movieguide and the family advocacy group’s founder, Ted Baehr. “We do an analysis of all [categories of] the box office and for many years, people would say that violence sells or sex sells and of course, we’ve found that not to be the case,” Baehr told...

    Howard Dean said Friday he regrets suggesting — with no evidence — that Donald Trump is a cocaine user. Dean, a former Democratic presidential candidate and a medical doctor, did not apologize to Trump, but for “using innuendo” that contributed to the toxic tone of this year’s campaign. “I apologize for using innuendo,” Dean said on MSNBC, where he’s a contributor. “I don’t think it’s a good thing to do. I don’t think it’s the right thing to do.”

    There are those who seek merely to decry Trump, and there are those who are befuddled by him. His opponents want to destroy him now that he is winning, and some in the establishment – like former presidential candidate Mitt Romney and the old guard – fear his taking over the GOP. Donald Trump and the political phenomenon he has created are most understandable. Three kinds of people are involved in politics: political theorists, unprincipled actors and principled actors. Political theorists Theorists of both the right (like Charles Krauthammer and George Will) and the left (Brookings Institute senior fellow William...

    Audit details huge gap in missing White House documents Published: 05/18/2000 With Congress planning more hearings into the White House's cover-up of a huge gap in subpoenaed e-mail, it's no wonder that the nation's chief executive says he avoids using e-mail. At least that's what he told a 9-year-old boy when the lad asked him how he uses the Internet last month during a "digital divide" photo-op. "If you work for the government," President Clinton explained, "you don't use e-mail very much unless you want it all in the newspapers." Of course, Clinton was making a joke at his own...

    Rev. Franklin Graham, the influential son of beloved evangelist Billy Graham, tells Newsmax TV the pounding Russian air force strikes in Syria may end up saving countless numbers of persecuted Christians. "What Russia is doing may save the lives of Christians in the Middle East," Graham, president and CEO of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, said Wednesday to J.D. Hayworth and Miranda Khan on "Newsmax Prime." "You understand that the Syrian government for their good and for their bad over the history of this country, they have protected Christians, they have protected minorities from the Islamists."

    FLORENCE, AZ (KPHO/KTVK) - A traffic stop and short foot pursuit in Stanfield led to the arrests Friday of three men suspected of drug smuggling. A vehicle was pulled over by a Pinal County sheriff’s deputy for a traffic violation at a Circle K on the corner of Stanfield and Highway 84. Two people bailed out and fled while the driver, Erik Thomas, 25, of Casa Grande, stayed behind. The deputy found four bundles of marijuana inside the vehicle, along with a Kenwood portable radio. The bundles weighed 81 pounds. Thomas was arrested. Authorities learned he had an outstanding warrant...
