Give Me a Break; June 24, 2022 at the Arizona Capitol was Not Like January 6, 2021 at Congress in Washington D.C.

Arizona Republicans and right wing media are good at being scared drama queens. After Arizona Department of Public Safety Officers, without warning, fired tear gas into a crowd of mostly peaceful protestors less than a minute after one over zealous, criminally moronic individual attempted to kick open the door to the State Senate (see picture below,) Republican members of the Grand Canyon State Upper Chamber whined that what these people did was comparable to the domestic terrorist-insurrectionists that stormed

Judge Rules Dominion’s Defamation Lawsuit Can Proceed Against Fox And Newsmax

Looks like Dominon Voting Systems is a step closer to winning its defamation cases against Fox News and Newsmax. Judge Refuses To Dismiss Dominion’s Case Against Fox News’ Parent Company: Dominion Voting Systems scored a legal victory in its efforts to hold Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch’s Fox Corp. liable in its defamation lawsuit, not just Fox News, after the network featured guests and personalities who amplified false election rigging claims. A Delaware judge [last] Tuesday refused to dismiss Dominion’s

Other Controversial Bills Which Passed Before The AZ Legislature Declared Sine Die

Probably because the Arizona legislature ended its sessiion on the same day the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the 49-year precedent of Roe v. Wade, which sucked up all the oxygen in the room, the media did not do its usual reporting on bills that were passed before the Arizona legislature declared sine die. Some of the reporting that I have seen is behind paywalls. This is bullshit. Early voting in Arizona's primary election begins July 6, voters have a

2022 is the Democrats Midterm Elections to Win

Many pundits, looking to history, fall back on the political tradition of the President's party routinely losing midterm elections. However, those pundits are not taking fully into account the lunacy and fringe behavior that currently engulfs the former party of Lincoln (the Republican Party for those that need clarification.) This is the political party where most of its members have said no to science, COVID vaccinations, Democracy, the right to vote, real history education, Universal Pre K, lower prescription

Superintendent Kathy Hoffman Reacts to the Arizona Republican School Voucher (Tax Cut for the Rich) Expansion

Before the Arizona Legislative Session adjourned, Republicans passed, yet again, another tax cut for the rich, disguised as school choice (which everyone in the state already had,) with school voucher expansion, where Grand Canyon state residents can apply for $7,000 in public tax payer dollars through Empowerment Scholarship Accounts, to attend the private (including religious) school of their choice. What makes this expansion more scary is the apparent lack of financial and educational performance accountability for private schools in

SCOTUS Watch: Court Continues Writing The Establishment Clause Out Of The Constitution

Update to SCOTUS Watch: An Activist Radical Republican Court Detached From The Majority Of America (excerpt): [Last] Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court issued the first of its “major” decisions remaining on the watch list, Carson v. Makin. This case was a challenge to the constitutionality of a Maine program that pays tuition for some students to attend private schools when their own school district does not operate a public secondary school. This case is the logical finale of the “holy

Saying The Quiet Part Out Loud – White Christian Nationalists Are Emboldened

Rep. Mary Miller (R-Ill.) said the quiet part out loud Saturday when she thanked former President Donald Trump at an Illinois rally for his role in overturning Roe v. Wade by packing the U.S. Supreme Court with radical Republican justices. GOP lawmaker calls Roe ruling ‘victory for white life’ as Trump rally cheers: “President Trump, on behalf of all the MAGA patriots in America, I want to thank you for the historic victory for white life in the Supreme

GQP Legislators Ignore The Will Of The Voters, Approve ‘Universal’ Vouchers Bill At The Eleventh Hour

Update to GQP Legislators Ignore The Will Of The Voters. Buy A Comfortable Pair Of Shoes And Dust Off the Clip Boards For Yet Another Voucher Referendum Campaign. Authoritarian Republicans do not care what the majority of voters want. They only care about what the MAGA/QAnon GQP crazy base wants in a GQP primary elections. They pass laws that only the GQP crazy base wants, and then they place new restrictions on your constitutional right in Arizona to citizens

Anti-Anti-Racism (Anti-CRT) Bill Dies For Want Of A Missing GQP Legislator

Above: Republicans long for the idealic past (a myth) of 1950s Americana - at the height of state-sponsored Jim Crow racial segregation, before the Libs gave us the Civil Rights Movement and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Some Republicans even long for the idealic past of  1850s antebellum America - at the height of constitutionally-enshrined slavery before the Civil War and the "Radical Republicans" gave us the 13th, 14th and 15th
