    LAS CRUCES, N.M. — A New Mexico man who dodged a murder charge in 2017 is now accused of decapitating a man in a public park and using his head to play soccer in the street. Joel Arciniega-Saenz, 25, of Las Cruces, was arrested Sunday night and charged with first-degree murder in the killing of 51-year-old James Garcia. He remained jailed without bond Wednesday in the Doña Ana County Detention Center. Court documents obtained by KTSM in El Paso describe the grisly scene Las Cruces police officers found when they responded Sunday to Apodaca Park. According to the records, police...
  • What New Mexico’s special election can tell us about the midterms (vote tomorrow if this is your district)

    Tuesday’s special election to represent New Mexico’s 1st District in Congress is just one race. No matter who wins — likely the Democratic candidate Melanie Stansbury — control of Congress won’t change. Yet, this race will also be one of our first insights into the political environment a little more than four months into President Joe Biden’s administration. Federal special elections, as a group, usually give us a fairly good idea how midterms are going to go.
  • Border Patrol Has Seized More Fentanyl So Far This Than In All Of 2020 As Overdoses Surge

    United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) now says that there is a surge in fentanyl coming across the United States border, and the agency has seized more of the incredibly potent narcotic in the first several months of 2021 than it did in all of 2020. “Customs and Border Protection seized more fentanyl so far in 2021 than all of 2020,” ABC News reported Tuesday. “As of April, 6,494 pounds of fentanyl were seized by authorities at the border, compared to 4,776 pounds in all of 2020. In fact, fentanyl seizures have been increasing since 2018.” “Fentanyl is an...

    On Thursday, it was reported that Democrat Sen. Martin Heinrich is planning to introduce “a revenue replacement bill” next week which “would provide a predictable transition for states, counties, and tribes and give those governments time to transition their budgets to more sustainable and reliable sources of revenue,” according to the Santa Fe New Mexican.“The bill sets a baseline mineral revenue amount for each fiscal year based on a historical average of federal mineral revenue, declining by 5 percent each year,” a news release states. “If the regular mineral revenue payment to a state, county, or tribe would fall below...

    Today, The Two Mikes spoke with Mr. Bobby Lopez about the inroads being made into the government of Texas, the Texas Democrat and Republican parties, and the Mega Christian churches by the depraved sexual theories of Democratic activists. California, New York, and other leftist states are each seeing their own variations of a mass exodus. The authoritarian rule that has always been present since the modern Democrat Party made their intentions more public is driving people out. Many are conservatives or moderates who are simply seeking freer pastures, but there is also an exodus of leftists who simply cannot abide...

    Democratic New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham reportedly used thousands in taxpayer funds to purchase groceries, liquor, and dry cleaning for her personal use. Grisham racked up a $13,500 tab during the last six months of 2020, according to financial disclosures reported on by the Sante Fe New Mexican. Her bill allegedly included $6,500 in luxurious groceries such as Wagyu beef and tuna steaks, as well as bottles of tequila, vodka, gin, wine, and beer. Grisham or one of her surrogates allegedly spent $200 on alcohol during one visit to Sam’s Club and also used tax dollars to pay for...

A few minutes later they arrested him and two other armed men who were with him. Grady complained that members of the New Mexico Civil Guard, who attended a Protest for Freedom rally at the Civic...

    Copyright © 2020 Albuquerque Journal A strong majority of likely New Mexico voters across all age groups, regions of the state and political parties approve of the way the police in their communities are doing their jobs, according to a recent Journal Poll. And the majority said they oppose cutting some funding from police departments and shifting it to social services. “It’s consistent that if people have strong approval ratings for the police, they would also oppose (cutting) funding,” said Brian Sanderoff, president of Research & Polling Inc., which conducted the statewide survey. “If you’re very concerned about crime –...

    ...anti-gun members of the Albuquerque City Council are calling for MORE GUN CONTROL! That's right. This week, the Council's Finance & Government Operations Committee advanced Resolution 20-68 by Councilmembers Isaac Benton and Diane Gibson, which calls on the New Mexico Legislature to rewrite Article II, Section 6 (the Right to Keep and Bear Arms provision) of the New Mexico Constitution, rip out the state firearms preemption clause and put that enormously-significant change to a popular vote. The full Council will consider the resolution in the coming weeks. Preemption prevents a patchwork of different local firearms rules and regulations across the...

    After she narrowly won election, however, Torres Small quickly embraced the Democrats’ gun control agenda, voting in favor of universal background checks while still presenting herself as a “gun owner and hunter” in interactions with residents. The Las Cruces Sun-News highlighted one exchange back in 2019. Asked for her preferred action on gun regulations, on a night falling about a month after the Aug. 3 mass shooting in nearby El Paso, Torres Small said, “The second amendment right (to bear arms) comes with its responsibilities, and that’s why I voted for comprehensive background checks. Because I think, like most gun...

    We're busy up here with COVID, another New York Times story based on people familiar with the situation, another day of former V.P. Joe Biden hiding in the basement, and lots of rumors about President Trump dropping out. Down in Mexico, the situation is not about rumors. Last week, Mexico City police chief Omar García Harfuch was gunned down near his Lomas de Chapultepec home in Mexico City. For the record, I'm very familiar with that part of Mexico City. It's upscale and exclusive. How did people with high-powered rifles enter this supposedly secured neighborhood? The assassination attempt happened at...

    In New Mexico, on June 15, the police were pulled back, refusing to arrest people as they attempted to destroy public property. Leftist media called the situation a protest. It was a propaganda event meant to intimidate and demoralize. Residents of the area, including local militia members, attempted to prevent the destruction of the statue.  Mindful of a hostile, leftist media, armed militia members were careful not to engage in violence, or to be baited by leftist agitators.Steven Baca, a former political candidate, was videoed scuffling with leftists who were working to destroy the statue. He appears to have taken...

Police say Scott Williams was shot several times in the torso and is in critical but stable condition at University of New Mexico Hospital. In 2019, Baca, the son...

    Yesterday, we told you about Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer offering up dubious explanations for her husband throwing his weight as the governor’s husband around at a northern Michigan marina where he wanted to get his boat on the water early, despite Whitmer’s public guidance against travel to the area. Democratic Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker got huffy late last month when confronted about his wife traveling to his family’s equestrian estate in Florida despite his stay-at-home order, and last week, he got caught sending Illinois construction workers to Wisconsin to work on his new home and horse farm.

    CIVIC PLAZA - A small group of protesters demanding the reopening of New Mexico’s economy gathered at Civic Plaza Friday while the death toll from the coronavirus in New Mexico continues to mount. The demonstration - organized locally on Facebook by longshot Republican congressional candidate Brett Kokinadis and a group called “NM Freedom Rally - Operation Gridlock NM” - mirrored other anti-quarantine protests held in Santa Fe and across the country in recent weeks calling for the softening of social distancing restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic. While the small nationwide protests continue to make headlines and grab attention online, their...

    Cibola County, New Mexico Sheriff Tony Mace says he and other sheriffs from around the state are meeting with attorneys this week as they get ready to file suit over the state’s new red flag law, signed last week by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. During the signing ceremony, Grisham said that sheriffs who weren’t prepared to enforce the new law should resign, but Sheriff Mace and other sheriffs are taking the matter to court instead. Mace tells me that the sheriffs will be holding meetings with several different attorneys over the next few weeks to discuss litigation strategies before filing...

    Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed red flag legislation into law on Tuesday, and told sheriffs who oppose the law that they should resign if they won’t enforce any gun seizure orders. The vast majority of the state’s sheriffs spoke out in opposition to the legislation before it was narrowly approved by the state legislature, and the head of the state sheriffs association rejected Grisham’s call to resign after her remarks during the signing ceremony. New Mexico Sheriffs’ Association President Tony Mace of Cibola County said the new law goes too far by potentially impounding guns before any crime is committed...

    Republican congressional candidate Claire Chase is demonstrating her opposition to a proposed New Mexico gun law in a new campaign commercial obtained exclusively by the Daily Caller. The advertisement shows Chase shooting a .308 at a red flag, and touting her support for the 2nd Amendment. “I have a few words about the so-called red flag law that liberals in Santa Fe are pushing,” Chase says in the video. “This piece of legislation is an attack on our Constitutional rights that would make innocent until proven guilty into guilty until proven innocent.” “Well, today I have a few words for...
