This spring, as tragic reports surfaced of veterans dying while waiting for care at the Phoenix VA, I hosted a town hall forum at Burton Barr Central Library where the families of four veterans who passed away stood before a packed room to tell their stories. With tears in their eyes — and anger and frustration palpable throughout the room — they recalled countless unanswered phone calls and ignored messages, endless wait times, and mountains of bureaucratic red tape at the VA while their loved ones suffered debilitating and ultimately fatal conditions.
Talking with John Giles and Danny Ray, it is immediately obvious that neither man previously saw himself where the two find themselves now, campaigning for the office of mayor in Mesa. And yet, in a few short weeks, the residents of Mesa must choose between the two of them to replace interim Mayor Alex Finter and lead the City Council.
Our state is taking a beating over our nation’s broken immigration system. Unfortunately, we’re hearing a lot of rhetoric and campaign pandering on this issue. Here’s the truth: securing the border is about more than guards and fencing.
“Gun owner to Target: I carry everywhere, end of discussion. However, Target just became a whole lot more dangerous place for people to shop. Thanks for the lack of protection and public invitation to criminals.”
The voters of Congressional District 9 are faced with a couple of choices. Do we keep Democrat Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema to represent us or do we elect someone else?
I can only imagine the machismo in the air at Wednesday night’s gubernatorial candidate summit on immigration and border security hosted by Mr. Muy Macho himself, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu.
An open letter to John Sidney McCain. FYI, John, the Iraqi people lost Iraq, not President Obama. Hell, John, George W. Bush set the timetable to walk away; you are such a tool. John, we were in Iraq for 12-plus years, if after that time a nation can’t stand on its own feet and defend itself, after wasting billions of Americans’ tax dollars propping them up, all for nothing, then we shouldn’t go back.
I can only imagine the machismo in the air at last night’s gubernatorial candidate summit on immigration and border security hosted by Mr. Muy Macho himself, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu.

There is nothing to indicate that Bowe Bergdahl’s behavior in Afghanistan was heroic. For that matter, neither was the behavior of Jessica Lynch, Lori Piestewa, or Patrick Tillman. But they were good soldiers, and that’s more important. The bar of heroism has been lowered substantially by two successive administrations, trying to put lipstick on the Afghanistan pig by showering accolades upon the soldiers fighting it. Any 13-year conflict runs the risk of some stench rubbing off on the soldiers.
“One thing is certain: Although they only work 111 days a year, none of Arizona’s congressional delegation has taken the time to visit patients in the VA hospital. And what about veteran John McCain? In 20 years in Washington, he apparently never visited Walter Reed with its crumbling paint and horrible conditions, even though it was less than 10 miles from his office.”
Millions of Americans fought and died to establish and preserve our constitutionally guaranteed right to liberty. Why doesn’t that tell our elected officials where our priority lies? Without our liberty our lives, and more importantly the lives of our children, are reduced to centralized government tyranny and slavery.
Our elected officials in Washington, D.C., talk a good game when it comes to supporting the needs of small-business owners like my husband and I. We run Blockwise Engineering, a manufacturing equipment business in Tempe, Ariz. Like all good small-business owners, we do our civic duty and pay our fair share of taxes to help ensure that our communities have good schools, well-kept roads and other services we sometimes take for granted.
Politicians are climbing over each other to see who can express the most outrage over the failings of the VA. Sen. John McCain as usual led the charge, the first to demand the resignation of the Phoenix VA hospital director. Other eagerly joined in.
he U.S. Senate has turned fish into foul and left America’s disability community dangling on the hook.
Allegedly professionals at the Phoenix Veterans Administration Hospital knowingly and willfully delayed, misled, and maltreated our nation’s veterans, and that infuriates me and it should infuriate every American.
Without a doubt the stories coming from the Phoenix VA are deplorable. I would hope the coming fair investigations will reveal exactly what transpired at this Facility.
Facing calls to resign, Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki said Thursday that he hopes to have a preliminary report within three weeks on how widespread treatment delays and falsified patient scheduling reports are at VA facilities nationwide, following allegations that up to 40 veterans may have died while awaiting treatment at the Phoenix VA center.
My youngest child, my daughter Annie, is moving home to Arizona after graduating from Stanford University this month and I’m thrilled she’s returning to be near us for at least a little while.
To my senators, Jeff Flake and John McCain, Arizona citizens and the editor:
Oh no, not Nancy Grace again. She makes “Elvira”, the wicked witch of the West look like Mary Poppins. Isn’t it bad enough that CNN has Wolf Blitzer’s and Anderson Cooper’s faces in constant close up showing their feigned concern and angst while reporting on the Malaysian Airlines crash?
Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will visit Arizona State University later this month to host their 7th annual Clinton Global Initiative University.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's staff worked with proponents of a bill that would have allowed businesses to refuse service to gays before the legislation was introduced in January, according to emails released by her office.
Congressional Republicans are like a pathetic victim of bullying. When faced with a challenge, they draw up into a ball and beg not to be kicked.
