    Former Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake filed an appeal to the Arizona Supreme Court in her election case that alleges at least 8,000 unreadable ballots were misconfigured. The appeal, which was filed on Friday, can be read here: [link to appeal embedded in article] On page two of the appeal, Lake's legal team alleges that at least 8,000 ballots were unreadable and not "duplicated or counted."

  • Do You Love America?

    What, precisely, is it about America you love? That’s the question this July 4 as just 29% of Democrats say they’re extremely proud of the country, accompanied by just 33% of Independents and 60% of Republicans. In fact, Democratic love of country has always fallen far behind that of Republicans, even during the Obama era, when it hit a temporary high of just over 50% (Republicans at the time said they were extremely proud of the country at a rate of approximately 70%). Why is it that liberals in the United States are so much less proud of America than...

    Air-defense system is finally doing what it was designed for, 40 years later The missiles were coursing toward Kyiv, some as fast as six times the speed of sound and many heading directly for the crew’s missile battery. The Ukrainians didn’t panic, their commander said in an interview. They didn’t have time. Early that morning, May 16, the Patriot’s radar detected the missiles, including six Kinzhals, at a distance of about 125 miles. The system’s computer tracked the missiles and launched interceptors, destroying all of them, the last at a distance of about 9 miles—seconds before impact. “No one was...
  • Ukraine has squeezed out of the US Patriot missile system a capability that the Pentagon did not think possible, military analyst says

    The Patriot is the main air defense system that the US has in its arsenal, with the capability to track 100 targets from 60 miles away. Last week, Fabian Hoffmann, a doctoral research fellow at the Oslo Nuclear Project, told UK's Sky News that after Ukraine recently claimed to have repelled multiple Russian hypersonic Kinzhal missiles, Russia has "never looked weaker." "This is a truly remarkable development," he said Hoffmann added, in a tweet, "The fact that Ukraine was able to defend this attack is amazing, in my opinion, whether the final interception rate is 90% or 100%."

    The state of American politics is not as uplifting these days as it once was. So this seems a good time to write about something more hopeful — one of the most noble and worthy political leaders ever to lift our nation. Former President James Earl Carter (D) was a great president and is a great man. He is a devout Christian, a patriotic American, a devoted husband and father, a charitable neighbor, and a powerful voice for human rights and democracy around the world. He is a man who spends every day trying to make his country, community and...

Gen. Pat Ryder told reporters. “As you know, that system is part of a broader range of air defense capabilities that the United States and the international community have provided to Ukraine.”

    Ukraine is grateful to the West for the deployment of advanced anti-air missile systems but they are not enough and “much more” is needed. New air-defence weapons systems given to Ukraine by Western nations are now deployed and “on combat duty” says Air Forces spokesman Yurii Ihnat, who used the statement to reflect on the arrival of new equipment to also call for more. The comments came as fresh Russian airstrikes injured at least 34. Speaking on Ukrainian television, Colonel Ihnat said: “Believe me, all the Western weapons that are available now, to one degree or another, are working for...

    U.S. armed forces will begin training up to 100 Ukrainian soldiers on the sophisticated Patriot missile system next week at Fort Sill, Okla., a defense official confirmed for Fox News Tuesday. The training is expected to take several months, though it will still be an expedited process in comparison to roughly year-long program the Patriot missile system traditionally takes. "The longer those troops are off the line – they're not actually engaged in combat – and so [the U.S. is] trying to work with Ukrainians to see what we can do to accelerate the training timeline," Pentagon spokesman Brig. Gen....

    Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, which leftists now love to exploit to push critical race theory and pretend they honor the black heroes of American history. But in my research of recent years, I discovered dozens of black American heroes whose courage and sacrifice shaped this country and who are barely known at all. James Armistead Lafayette went from being a slave to being one of the best spies working for the Americans during the American Revolution. Armistead Lafayette outwitted British commander Gen. Cornwallis and provided George Washington vital information that contributed to the victory at the Battle...

    The United States for the first time will send a Patriot missile battery to Ukraine as part of a major $1.85 billion weapons package, the Pentagon revealed Wednesday. The new lethal assistance, announced in concert with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s visit to Washington, D.C., includes $1 billion in presidential drawdown authority, which has the U.S. military pull weapons from its own stockpiles to send to Kyiv. Another $850 million in assistance will come via the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, meaning the Defense Department will buy directly from industry. The package will include one Patriot air defense battery and munitions. The...

    What, are there a bunch of redcoats in the Keystone State or something? Pennsylvania is apparently one of the least patriotic states in the country, according to this one study. Financial site WalletHub decided to find out what makes a patriot as the Fourth of July holiday nears. In order to do so, they first took a look at all 50 states across two key dimensions: “Military Engagement” and “Civic Engagement.” From there they proceeded to grade each on sub-metrics such as “Veterans per 1,000 Civilian Adults” and “Share of Adults Who Voted in 2020 Presidential Election,” peppering in data...

    RIO RANCHO, N.M. (AP) - A liberal super PAC is jumping into a New Mexico contested GOP U.S. House primary and running commercials in apparent support of a President Donald Trump ally that Democrats believe they can defeat in November. Patriot Majority PAC began airing television commercials Saturday attacking oil executive Claire Chase for previous critical social media posts about Trump while praising former state lawmaker Yvette Herrell for supporting Trump’s border wall. “There’s Santa Fe lobbyist Claire Chase who opposed President Trump, calling him an (expletive) unworthy of the office,” a voice says while pictures of Chase are aired....

At 1:38 p.m. on Sunday, a "concerned citizen" reported that about 20 people "jumped into a U-Haul wearing masks. They had shields...

    Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis mocked the corporate media’s “nauseating” coverage of the Jan. 6 Commemoration at the Capitol Thursday, calling it “Christmas” for Democrats, and a “politicized Charlie Foxtrot,” using military slang for a poorly-managed operation, or “clusterf-ck.” ​”This is their Christmas,” ​DeSantis said, meaning Washington and New York-based media outlets. “They are going to take this and milk this for anything they can to be able to smear anyone who ever supported Donald Trump​,” he added. DeSantis made the remarks during a news conference about COVID-19 testing in West Palm Beach. The governor took a number of questions...

    President Biden on Monday paid tribute to former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who died earlier in the day due to complications from COVID-19, noting his many accomplishments and patriotism that "earned him the universal respect of the American people." “Colin embodied the highest ideals of both warrior and diplomat. He was committed to our nation’s strength and security above all. Having fought in wars, he understood better than anyone that military might alone was not enough to maintain our peace and prosperity,” the president said in a statement. “From his front-seat view of history, advising presidents and shaping our...
