    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...

    New Mexico authorities on Thursday said they were working with police in New York state to obtain material from actor Alec Baldwin's cellphone relating to a probe into the fatal shooting of a cinematographer on the set of Western movie "Rust." The Santa Fe Sheriff's Office and New Mexico First Judicial District Attorney's Office are "actively working" with the Suffolk County Sheriff's Department, New York, and Baldwin's lawyers to get any materials on the phone pertaining to their investigation, according to a press release. The statement came three weeks after the sheriff's office received a search warrant to seize Baldwin's...

    Albuquerque police officers believe Isela Camarena set multiple fires at the Islamic Center of New Mexico. Surveillance video from the mosque shows a person in a black hoodie setting the fires. "I noticed that the media is playing, in reports, significant sections of the surveillance footage, yet those of us defending Ms. Camarena have not been provided those copies," Lindsey Rosebrough, Camarena's defense, said. Camarena appeared in court Tuesday. Prosecutors asked a district court judge to keep her locked up, but the argument didn't get far. "I'm asking for a continuance at this time," Rosebrough said. Islamic Center of New...

    Before Kyle Rittenhouse became a household name, there was Steven Baca. You probably never knew or maybe have forgotten who Steven is. I'd like to remind you of his plight and ask you to help me support his defense of the right to self-defense. Steven's case matters because the woke, George Soros-funded district attorney leading the witch-hunt prosecution against Steven may soon be New Mexico's next attorney general if good people do nothing. Flashback to June 15, 2020: Across America, mayhem and mob anarchy reigned. It had been three weeks since the police-involved death of Minneapolis career criminal and...

    Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham owes retired Supreme Court Chief Justice Edward Chavez and retired Court of Appeals Chief Judge Roderick Kennedy an explanation — if not an apology. Chavez and Kennedy co-chaired a Redistricting Task Force that worked for 12 weeks “to bring justice, fairness and transparency” to the contentious decennial process. The 25-member task force studied state and federal requirements, the best practices from other states and concerns from specific New Mexico communities before laying a foundation for a fair redistricting process. The group developed 18 consensus recommendations for the subsequent seven-member Citizen Redistricting Committee, chaired by Chavez and...

    Four Texas National Guard troops have died in suspected suicides since October as the force rapidly expands to carry out Gov. Greg Abbott’s order to guard the Lone Star State’s border with Mexico, according to a report. An investigation by the Army Times published Thursday found that to meet Abbott’s troop quotas as part of Operation Lone Star, the Guard has resorted to involuntarily activating soldiers from across Texas. The report cited interviews with family members, Guard troops and official documents. Retired Command Sgt. Maj. Jason Featherston, the Texas Army National Guard’s senior enlisted leader from May 2020 until his...

    Texas Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar said that he's done trying to work with Vice President Kamala Harris on border issues. 'I say this very respectfully to her: I moved on,' Cuellar told The New York Times. 'She was tasked with that job, it doesn't look like she's very interested in this, so we are going to move on to other folks that work on this issue.' Cuellar's gripes originated when Harris said she'd be visiting the border in June and a phone call from his office to hers went unreturned. Texas Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar (left) said that he's done...

    Actor Alec Baldwin "requested a bigger gun" before the incident that left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead and director Joel Souza injured on the set of the movie Rust in October, police said. An investigation of the deadly shooting recently revealed that Baldwin had discussed his choice of weapon with Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed via email, according to an affidavit from Detective Alexandria Hancock, which was included in a search warrant issued to acquire Baldwin's cell phone on Thursday. "Alec said since they were in rehearsal, he assumed he had an empty gun, therefore when he shot the gun, Haylena [sic]...

    SANTA FE — Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed into law Friday a bill setting new political boundary lines for New Mexico’s three congressional districts for the next decade. The new congressional map, which was passed by state lawmakers on largely party-line votes with majority Democrats voting in favor, could reshape the political landscape in New Mexico. It splits Albuquerque into two different districts and moves some of southeast New Mexico, traditionally a conservative stronghold, into congressional districts now represented by U.S. Reps. Melanie Stansbury and Teresa Leger Fernandez, both Democrats. While a court challenge could still be filed against the...

    Another Democrat has decided to abandon his own party by listing his party affiliation as “decline to state.” State Senator Jacob Candelaria of New Mexico says he’s tired of partisan politics, adding that Democrats are fueled by the mere prospect of gaining more control and power instead of what’s actually most helpful to working Americans. Attacking Democrats, Candelaria said bluntly, “Partisanship is a virus that’s ripping our country apart.” “I’ll no longer be a part of it,” he added. His decision comes as Democrats have pushed for a controversial new map of redistricting in the state. Candelaria explained, “You would...

Jared Polis (D) defended his refusal to reinstitute a state mask mandate by saying that the coronavirus “emergency is over” and state public health officials don’t “get to tell people what to wear.” Polis also argued that because vaccines have been available for a long time, “People who want to be protected are.” And that “If you haven’t been vaccinated, that’s your choice. I respect that. But it’s your fault when you’re in the hospital with COVID.”

    SANTA FE — A redistricting proposal that would split Albuquerque in two and establish a Democratic lean in all three of New Mexico’s congressional seats is off to fast start. The proposed map — jointly sponsored by Sen. Joseph Cervantes of Las Cruces and Rep. Georgene Louis of Albuquerque, both Democrats — cleared its first committee Wednesday on a party-line vote over the objection of Republicans. It would make the 2nd Congressional District — now held by Republican Yvette Herrell of Alamogordo — more Democratic by moving into it much of the West Side of Albuquerque, some neighborhoods near the...

    John Schneider is sharing his thoughts on Alec Baldwin’s “Rust” movie set shooting. On Oct. 21, Baldwin was rehearsing a scene on the New Mexico set of his planned film “Rust” when a gun he was holding discharged. A projectile from the weapon fatally struck cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. An investigation into the incident has been underway for a month now, and Baldwin spoke out Thursday night, claiming during a tell-all interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News that despite holding the gun, he “didn’t pull the trigger.” Ahead of Baldwin’s interview, a preview was released, which featured Baldwin’s comments, and...
