    My colleague streiff beautifully covered the United States District Court Southern District of Georgia’s ruling which put another stake in the heart of Dementia Joe’s vaccine mandates. The ruling extended the stay of the vaccine mandate affecting federal contractors nationwide, and not just to the jurisdictions covered under the court.While streiff rightly focused on the fact that corporations with more than 100 employees could still try to keep their employee vaccine mandates in place as covered here and here, it is a shot in the arm (pun intended) for the law enforcement, first responders, and civil servants who were on...
  • Wake Up, Progressives: You're Lucky To Have Kyrsten Sinema

    11/30/2021 4:30:56 AM PST · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | November 30, 2021 | Salena Zito
    Brian Murray knows just how fierce an opponent Arizona's Sen. Kyrsten Sinema can be. The Republican strategist saw his candidate lose to Democrat Sinema in their 2012 race for the House. Calling the experience "unpleasant," Murray admits his candidate, Vernon Parker, was flawed, but "flawed candidates win all of the time. Kyrsten, however, was an absolute machine." Sinema, along with fellow centrist Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, has recently become the epicenter of American politics largely because she insists on siding with the interests of her constituents instead of the demands of her party. Over the past few...

    PHOENIX (AP) - The Phoenix City Council is reconsidering a decision to enact a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for its employees, less than a week after the announcement was made, as some city leaders are concerned about the negative impact the mandate would have on city services. "I’m incredibly concerned this will cause us to lose employees," said Phoenix City Councilmember Ann O'Brien. Initially, City of Phoenix officials announced that all employees must be vaccinated by Jan. 18 so the city can comply with the rules created by President Joe Biden’s administration. Federal contractors are required to have their employees vaccinated...

    PHOENIX, AZ — All city of Phoenix workers will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by Jan. 18, according to an ABC 15 report. City employees were notified of the vaccination mandate through a Thursday email, ABC 15 reported. Employees who aren't vaccinated by Jan. 18 could lose their jobs, AZ Family reported. Employees are not currently required to get booster shots. The city says that because it holds so many federal contracts, all of its employees are subject to President Joe Biden's executive order mandating vaccination for all employees of federal contractors, ABC 15 reported.

    PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - Homeowners near 35th Avenue and Pinnacle Peak Road say there has been a mysterious rattle that is happening more consistently and frequently. "It was just a jolt at first and we'd feel it like 2 or 3 times out of the year," said Timothy Jackson. "As of yesterday, it was about 20 times every hour, just a steady shake." Timothy has videos of his windows rattling during one of the episodes. He said he built his home in 2000 and the shaking started about five years later--but it's never been this bad.

    Meghan McCain has compared Vice President Kamala Harris to mentally ill movie villain the Joker after she laughed when asked about the deadly crisis in Afghanistan. “This may be some kind of real issue (like Joaquin phoenix in the joker),” the former host of “The View” wrote alongside a clip of the VP chuckling wildly last Friday while halting a reporter asking her about the crisis. Phoenix’s Oscar-winning portrayal of Batman’s nemesis in the 2019 movie showed the Joker’s descent into madness marked by his menacing laughter at inappropriate moments.

    Starting next week, billboards, social media, television and print media will carry messages urging thousands of Valley motorists, including those in the West Valley, to prepare for four years of disruptions in their driving routines. It’s not exactly Armageddon that the Arizona Department of Transportation will be heralding, but it certainly won’t be a walk in the park either, especially for car and truck traffic on I-10. West Valley motorists who need to get to the other side of the county or Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport can expect significant increases in traffic as motorists try to evade the inevitable...

    Cities like Dallas, Texas are benefiting from homebuyers from high-tax states with deep pockets. Real estate executive Rogers Healy weighs in on the 'new reality' of the business.

Brakey is the co-founder and director Audit USA. On Tuesday Brakey told The War Room the Arizona audit is the first genuine audit since the November election. Brakey added, “There really hasn’t been any audits. It’s no different than an emissions test by Volkswagen passing an emissions test on a diesel car.” Brakey also told the War Room the elites “built a computer that they knew would cheat.”
