Supporters of the Independent Redistricting Commission want a federal court to rule that the Arizona Legislature has no right to challenge the voter-approved law.
Harry Reid invoked the so called “Nuclear Option” — a critical change in the rules of the Senate that provided a voice for the minority party. When Obama had control of the House and the Senate we saw him ram through Obamacare. Obama has three more years to exercise his agenda but is fearful that he may actually lose control of the Senate in 2014 due to the public backlash against Obamacare. His burning agenda is to stack the D.C. court with left-wing judges and place more liberals in key positions within the government. He has stated that he feels these nominees are being held up by the GOP via filibuster. So, getting rid of this provision allows Obama to act with impunity in regards to nominees thus ensuring that he can place liberals in any position he wishes.
Every so often some researcher whips out his calculator and estimates how much it takes to raise a child today. I suspect that this exercise is some sort of subtle pressure from the government to cut down on overpopulation, because the Department of Agriculture says it costs a libido-crushing $241,080 to raise each of our Special Snowflakes to age 18.
There are some startling conclusions we can draw from the election results of Nov. 5 in regards to the Kyrene and Tempe Union High School district’s Maintenance and Operation Override campaigns.
The current struggle of wills regarding universal health care (Obamacare) and the debt ceiling has polarized our nation into those who believe in fiscal responsibility versus those who believe in unlimited spending. Conservatives vs. Socialists. Democrat and Republican appellations haven’t been used because there are conservatives and socialists in each party.
Budget battles never seem to end in Washington, DC. And, like a real battle, there are casualties. Among them are people with diseases and disabilities hoping for new medical breakthroughs.
In its sedulous efforts to accelerate the already rapid dumbing of America, Fox News is intensifying its suppression of economic facts. In John Stossel, Fox evidently has a sincere but stupid dispenser of preposterous misinformation.
Christine Jones has formally announced her candidacy for governor of Arizona. Along with officially announcing her candidacy for the Republican nomination, Jones launched a new website, christinejones.com, the website provides voters a multimedia format to learn more about her vision for Arizona and how to connect with the campaign.
Mark Brnovich has entered the race for Arizona Attorney General. Brnovich most recently served as director of the Arizona Department of Gaming, a law enforcement agency charged with regulating tribal casinos.
Ahwatukee Foothills resident Jill Norgaard has filed to run in the 2014 election for Legislative District 18 House of Representatives. Norgaard has been involved in politics for a number of years as a precinct committeeman, precinct captain, state committeeman, third vice president for the local Republican Women’s Club, and a graduate from the Dodie Londen Public Service Class in 2011.
Five Ahwatukee residents joined more than 1,275 other Republican women leaders from across the nation Sept. 19-22 at the National Federation of Republican Women’s 37th biennial convention, which focused on leadership training in preparation for the 2014 midterm elections.
The latest piece of extortion by the Republican House over the budget is getting scathing reviews all across the political spectrum. While it easy to blame the tea party for this nonsense the fact is that a substantial portion of the American electorate stubbornly cling to the notion that the intransigence it takes to ruin the nation will somehow save it. Although if you ask them by what practical mechanism is the Republic saved the hemming and hawing begin and finally end in an empty and vacuous rhetoric about freedom and the Constitution interleaved with anti-Obama hate speech. Specifics are hard to come by.
Q: Is the government too big and powerful? Does a one-legged duck swim in circles?
Barack Obama said this summer that he would be “happy to hear” any health care ideas that rivaled his beleaguered Obamacare, “but I haven’t heard any so far.”
“If you can’t modify something you’ve bought, do you really own it?”
Ryan House has unveiled a new “Story of Me Room” to provide opportunities for families to document the story of their child’s life prior to their passing.

Last May, our LD 18 legislators acted like Republicans. I guess I should say they acted to represent the Republican Party that I grew up with. I grew up with John Rhodes, Paul Fannin, Barry Goldwater and Sandra Day O’Connor, to name a few, leading the Republican Party. Sen. John McComish, Rep. Bob Robson and Rep. Jeff Dial represented us by voting to support our Kyrene School District. These education votes directly and positively affect our property values. Charter school choice aside, strong neighborhood schools directly affect whether or not our personal property is valued or not.
Saying a quick answer is needed, the Citizens Clean Election Commission asked the Court of Appeals on Wednesday to overturn a trial judge’s decision allowing candidates to take a lot more money from political supporters.
Facing ongoing hostility from some quarters over what they see as federal intrusion, Gov. Jan Brewer issued an edict Friday directing her agencies to stop using the term “Common Core” when referring to new education standards.
Outvoted by their colleagues, 36 Republican legislators are now asking a judge to invalidate the Medicaid expansion plan that they were unable to block politically.
A judge late Thursday cleared the way for politicians to immediately start taking much more money from private donors and political action committees for their campaigns.
I was reading the guest commentary of Don Kennedy (Aug. 30) in the Ahwatukee Foothills News and decided reply. In Don’s world it looks like there are only two choices, the socialist or the patriot. Given our two party system, yes there are two choices or really are there? Is Don implying that the Democrats are socialist and Republicans are patriots? But let me not get ahead of myself.
