Antelope Canyon Photo Sells For Record $6.5M

 

LIK USA Peter Lik's Phantom

 

 

 

” The world’s most expensive photo depicts Arizona’s Antelope Canyon, near Page on the Navajo Reservation.

  Landscape Photographer Peter Lik sold his print, titled “Phantom,” for $6.5 million to a private collector in November.

  The black-and-white photo depicts an underground cavern inside Arizona’s Antelope Canyon, a slot canyon formed as rainwater eroded the stone into narrow passageways.

  The canyon, first opened to the public in 1997, attracts photographers and sightseers to marvel at its uniquely smooth, flowing corridors and arches, Navajo Nation parks officials said.”

Arizona Cop Caught On Cam Brutally Attacking Teen Girl While Mother Begs Them To Stop

 

 

 

 

 

” A video was uploaded to Facebook on Friday of a Mesa, Arizona police officer repeatedly punching and attacking a 15 year old girl as her mother begged them to stop.

  The young girl, who was reportedly a runaway, was screaming that she couldn’t breathe as her mother attempted to explain to the officers that she has mental problems as well as asthma.

  Luis Paul Santiago, the witness who filmed the violent encounter stated that police attempted to delete the video, and the second officer on the scene explained that the officer “behaved correctly” and stated that “if she needed to, she could have shot her dead.” “

Arizona Voters Approve Proposition To Reject Federal Acts

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Today, voters in Arizona approved a ballot measure that follows James Madison’s advice to stop federal overreach. With 80% reporting, the tally held steady and increasing at 51-49%.

  Approved was Proposition 122, a state constitutional amendment that enshrines the anti-commandeering doctrine in the state constitution. The language amends the state constitution to give Arizona the ability to “exercise its sovereign authority to restrict the actions of its personnel and the use of its financial resources to purposes that are consistent with the Constitution.”

This language is consistent with the advice of James Madison, who wrote in Federalist #46:

  Should an unwarrantable measure of the federal government be unpopular in particular States, which would seldom fail to be the case, or even a warrantable measure be so, which may sometimes be the case, the means of opposition to it are powerful and at hand. The disquietude of the people; their repugnance and, perhaps, refusal to co-operate with the officers of the Union; the frowns of the executive magistracy of the State; the embarrassments created by legislative devices, which would often be added on such occasions, would oppose, in any State, difficulties not to be despised; would form, in a large State, very serious impediments; and where the sentiments of several adjoining States happened to be in unison, would present obstructions which the federal government would hardly be willing to encounter.

2nd Amendment Success Story – Armed Citizen Kills Serial Bank Robber, Another Arrested

 

 

Phoenix Bank Robber Killed

 

 

” The duo behind a rash of Phoenix bank robberies is out of business, with one now dead and the other under arrest, thanks to the efforts of an armed local businessman.

  On Wednesday, the Desert Schools Federal Credit Union was targeted by Lyndell Cherry, age 29 and Vincent Jones, age 21, who entered at around 2 p.m. and demanded money. The two had left the keys in the ignition and the engine of their getaway vehicle running, a mistake which proved to be their undoing.

  While the robbery was taking place, one credit union employee was able to call Sean Quaid, who owns a business next door to the credit union and told him what was happening. Quaid grabbed his gun and ran outside.  After determining which was the likely vehicle of the perpetrators, Quaid removed the keys from the ignition.

  When attempting their getaway, Cherry and Jones ran outside to their car and found they had no keys. They went back inside to see if they might have dropped them somewhere along the way, even going as far as searching a woman’s purse inside to see if she might have picked them up.

  With time running out, the robbers ran back outside and accosted a couple in a Chevy pickup, with Jones pointing his gun and demanding their vehicle. At that point, Quaid stepped in, ordering the felonious pair to stop. It was then that Cherry reportedly spun around and aimed his gun at Quaid, who fired first, striking Cherry. “

Surveillance Video Apparently Catches Guy Doing Something At The Ballot Box That Left Republican Monitor Stunned

 

” An Arizona county party official said he saw a man stuffing “hundreds” of ballots into the ballot box and later told a local news outlet the entire incident was caught on surveillance video. 

“ A person wearing a Citizens for a Better Arizona T-shirt dropped a large box of hundreds of early ballots on the table and started stuffing the ballot box as I watched in amazement,” said A.J. LaFaro, chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party.

  LaFaro said it all happened as he was working with the elections staff during early ballots processing. The team in charge of processing the ballots got “way ahead” so the information systems coordinator convened an extended lunch period from 11:30- 1:00 p.m.

  It was between 12:54 and 1:04 that LaFaro said he was seated at one of the cubicles, heard a loud thud and turned around to see the man who he claims was caught on tape stuffing “hundreds” of ballots. LaFaro described the man as a “vulgar, disrespectful, violent thug” with “no respect for our laws.” He said he would have followed the man to his car to get his tag number but “feared for [his] life.”

“ America used to be a nation of laws where one person had one vote,” LaFaro said, the Daily Independent reported. ”I’m sad to say not anymore.” “

 

    While the Citizens For A Better Arizona organization bills itself as a collection of democrats , republicans and independents , a quick look at the bios of their board reveals a collection of lawyers , teachers and union representatives … do the math , but remember , vote fraud is a myth .

Protests Planned To Target U.S. Southern Border Entry Ports

 

 

 

 

 

” American citizens describing themselves as “deeply concerned” with Obama administration immigration policies plan a mass protest on Saturday to press their demand to seal the southern border by blocking traffic at more than a dozen U.S. crossings.

  Demonstrators will attempt to stop incoming and outgoing traffic at 17 of the 63 locations in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California listed on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website.

  Rob Chupp, an organizer of the action publicized as “Shut Down All Ports Of Entry,” said more than a thousand people are expected to gather across the several states at the same time, 8 a.m. PDT/10 a.m. CDT at targeted checkpoints, park their vehicles in every lane and turn them off.”

 

Yahoo News

 

 

Update: Due to threats of violence the planned “Shut Down All Points Of Entry” protests planned for today have been cancelled :

 

 

" PROTEST IS CANCELLED.....PROTEST IS CANCELLED......

  There has been an unsubstantiated threat of mass violence to attendees, along with very suspicious activity on the Facebook site. These two items are more than enough for me to immediatelystop any protest that was going to occur.

Your lives, and the lives of our law enforcement, are more important than any protest.

  ​I apologize for the inconvenience, but we must remain safe and not put anyone in danger. If you attend, you are not just putting yourself in danger, but the law enforcement officers, as well. They are there to watch you, the protesters against you and the unknown threat. That is not the purpose of this event! Risking anyone's life is not worth it!

Please pass the word along to everyone!

Sincerely,

​Stasyi Barth "

Mexican Military Chopper Crosses The Border, Shoots At Agents

 

 

 

 

 

” News 4 Tucson has learned a Mexican military helicopter travelled across the border and fired on U.S. Border Patrol agents.

  It happened in the early morning hours Thursday, west of the San Miguel Gate on the Tohono O’Odham Nation. The chopper fired on the agents but missed them. The chopper then flew back into Mexico. We’re told Mexican authorities contacted the U.S. and apologized for the incident.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 ” We’ve received two statements regarding the incident:

Art del Cueto, Border Patrol Tucson Sector union president:

  The incident occurred after midnight and before 6 a.m. Helicopter flew into the U.S. and fired on two U.S. Border Patrol agents.

Police Confrontation With Man Carrying Hockey Stick Leads To Deadly Shooting

” TPD says they got a call from the apartment complex landlord after two previous tenants returned to their apartment after being evicted.

  The landlord told police a man and woman were inside the apartment and wanted officers to remove them.

  Officers responded to the scene, but received no answer when they knocked on the door. When they entered through the unlocked door, they saw a closed bedroom door.

  Police say 28-year-old Michael Duncklee came out of that room with a hockey stick. A confrontation ensued between officers and Duncklee and that’s when both officers shot him. Police say Duncklee died later at the hospital.

  The two TPD officers involved were Robert Soeder, a 14 year veteran of TPD, and Allan Meyer, a two year veteran of TPD.

  The officers then realized there was a woman in the room who also had been shot during the confrontation. She was treated and released from the hospital.”

Western Lawmakers Gather In Utah To Talk Federal Land Takeover

 

federal-land-map-1024x8411

 

 

” It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday.

  More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds.

” It’s simply time,” said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. “The urgency is now.” “

Federal Lands

” Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including her counterparts from Idaho and Montana, during a press conference after the daylong closed-door summit. U.S. Sen. Mike Lee addressed the group over lunch, Ivory said. New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Wyoming, Oregon and Washington also were represented.

  The summit was in the works before this month’s tense standoff between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management over cattle grazing, Lockhart said.

” What’s happened in Nevada is really just a symptom of a much larger problem,” Lockhart said.

Fielder, who described herself as “just a person who lives in the woods,” said federal land management is hamstrung by bad policies, politicized science and severe federal budget cuts.

“Those of us who live in the rural areas know how to take care of lands,” Fielder said, who lives in the northwestern Montana town of Thompson Falls.”

Mexico Confirms Confrontation With Border Patrol Agents

Screenshot-2014-04-03-11.17.45

 

 

” Two heavily armed, camouflaged Mexican soldiers crossed 50 yards inside Arizona in January and drew their guns against U.S. Border Patrol agents who confronted them in a tense standoff, according to documents obtained by The Times/Tribune Washington Bureau.

  U.S. officials said it was one of nearly two dozen border incursions by Mexican soldiers into southern Arizona in the last four years.

  The Jan. 26 confrontation, described in a Border Patrol foreign military incursion report and confirmed in a separate letter from U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, ended when the Mexican soldiers retreated back over the border after U.S. agents — who also drew their weapons — summoned assistance. The soldiers, who misidentified themselves to border agents, claimed to be pursuing drug smugglers, documents show.

  U.S. officials characterized the incident as one of the most serious incursions in recent years. Though gunfire was averted, the 35-minute confrontation underscored the continuing friction between the U.S. and Mexico when it comes to policing the often chaotic and violent Southwest border. It also raised questions among some U.S. officials about whether the Mexican soldiers were chasing drug smugglers, as they claimed, or protecting cartels as they used drug routes to Arizona.”

Two States Win Court Approval On Voter Rules

 

 

 

” A federal judge in Kansas on Wednesday ordered federal election authorities to help Kansas and Arizona require their voters to show proof of citizenship in state and local elections, in effect sanctioning a two-tier voter registration system that could well set a trend for other Republican-dominated states.

  Judge Eric F. Melgren of United States District Court in Wichita ruled that the federal Election Assistance Commission had no legal authority to deny requests from Kansas and Arizona to add state-specific instructions to a national voter registration form. The states sued the agency to force the action after it had turned them down.

Insane Photos Of The Marine Silent Drill Team Performing With Blue Angels Overhead

 

 

” There should never be a doubt in anyone’s mind as to the professionalism and the discipline of the U.S. Marine Corps.

  To exemplify the Marine Corps’ high standards, the Silent Drill Platoon was formed in 1948.

  Composed of a 24-man rifle platoon, the Silent Drill Platoon performs at various venues across the country, and represents the Marine Corps abroad. In their shows, they move with incredible precision — marching, moving into different formations, and tossing rifles — without the use of any commands.

  Their silence, put simply, is what makes their shows so awesome to watch.

  Below are some remarkable photos recently released by the Pentagon of the Silent Drill Platoon carrying out an exhibition drill, as ‘Fat Albert’ of the Blue Angels flies overhead.”

Caught On Camera: Little Pug Picks Fight With SWAT Team During Arizona Standoff !!

19 States Join Lawsuit Against NJ Gun Law

 

 

” Support is mounting for a lawsuit that challenges New Jersey’s tight restrictions on handgun ownership and its high standard of “justifiable need” for carrying a weapon outside the home.

  Nineteen states as well as the powerful National Rifle Association have joined the case’s plaintiff John Drake, who in his lawsuit claims he was denied a permit following a thwarted robbery attempt on his Sussex County business.

  Drake lost his appeal before a three-judge panel of the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year and now a growing number of states, led by Wyoming, are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the case, claiming New Jersey was wrong when it determined that the business owner failed to prove “justifiable need” to carry a gun under state statute.

Drake’s suit also claims that his right to bear arms under the Second Amendment has been violated.”

The New USA? Secession Movement Gains Steam

 

 

 

 

” If you mention the word “secession” most people think of the South during the Civil War. But today, a new movement is gaining steam because of frustration over a growing, out-of-control federal government.

  A number of conservative, rural Americans are taking about seceding and creating their own states, meaning a new map of the United States of America could include the following:

  These are real movements gaining traction with voters across the country. Jeffrey Hare runs the 51st State Initiative in Colorado, an effort to fight an out-of-control legislature trying to ram big government policies down the throats of voters.

” We’re at this point of irreconcilable differences,” Hare told CBN News.

  Secessionist talk has filled town hall meetings and the divide discussed is not just ideological.

” It’s predominately left versus right, but it’s urban versus rural because you typically find more typical conservative values in rural America,” Hare said.”

 

   For more information on the burgeoning secessionist movement and links to the organizations leading the charge you can go to uniondissolved.com and see what is happening in all of the states . The depth and breadth of discontent may surprise you . Obama may turn out to have been quite prescient when he said …

 

 

    Wikipedia offers this list of U.S. state partition proposals which numbers 36 and includes current and past efforts , while this link to the Middlebury Institute provides links to secessionist movements most of which are aimed at creating independent republics as opposed to adding to the states of the US .

” This is a list of official or otherwise noteworthy proposals for dividing existing US states into multiple states. It does not specifically address statewide or other movements to secede from the United States. The word secession can refer to political separation at different levels of government organization, from city to state to country; this list focuses on secession from (rather than by) U.S. states, particularly to form new U.S. states.

  Article IV of the United States Constitution provides for the creation of new states of the Union, requiring that any such creation be approved by the legislature of the affected state(s), as well as the United States Congress.

  Since the adoption of the U.S. Constitution, four states have been created from parts of an existing state: Maine (from Massachusetts), West Virginia (from Virginia), Kentucky(also from Virginia), and Vermont (from New York and New Hampshire)—though New York’s claim to Vermont was weak, as it was asked for its consent and Vermont was essentially an independent republic until 1791.”

Can You Guess Who The ‘Least Popular Senator In The Country’ Is ?

 

 

 

 

” A new Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey released on Thursday suggests that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is the “least popular senator in the country.” The results shouldn’t be that shocking as McCain has a low approval rating among both Republicans and Democrats.

The Republican has an approval rating of just 30 percent among all Arizona voters while 44 percent of respondents also disapprove of his job performance and 16 percent aren’t sure, according to the poll by the left-leaning PPP.”

Arizona First US State To Attempt Legal Resistance To NSA Surveillance

 

 

 

” Arizona’s state senate panel approved a bill withdrawing state support for intelligence agencies’ collection of metadata and banning the use of warrantless data in courts. The panel becomes the first legislative body in US to try and thwart NSA spying.

  The bill will now have to be approved by majority of the Senate Rules committee before it can move on to the full senate. It prohibits Arizona public employees and departments from helping intelligence agencies collect records of phone-calls and emails, as well as metadata (information on where and when the phone calls were made). 

  The bill is entitled the 4th Amendment Protection Act and was introduced by Republican Senator Kelli Ward of Lake Havasu City. It was passed on Monday by the Senate’s Government and Environment committee with a 4-2 vote. 

The 10th Amendment allows states to stand up against unconstitutional federal law,” Ward said, as cited by AP. “It’s a state issue because many times the NSA is turning that information over to our local and state law enforcement and using that in cases that are basic criminal prosecutions, not anything to do with terrorism.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Arizona Legislators Join Florida In Effort To Virtually Nullify All Federal Gun Laws

 

Arizona SB1294

 

” The campaign to stop federal violations of the Second Amendment at the state and local level got two big boosts late last week with the introduction of the Second Amendment Preservation Act in Arizona and an important endorsement for a similar bill pending in Florida.

  Along with eight other sponsors, Arizona state Senator Kelli Ward introduced the Second Amendment Preservation Act in the Grand Canyon State. SB1294 prohibits the state from enforcing “any federal act, law, order, rule or regulation that relates to a personal firearm, firearm accessory or ammunition within the limits of this state.”

“ We’ve sat back and allowed the federal government to trample the Constitution long enough,” Ward said. “We’re going to pass this bill and stop the state of Arizona from helping the feds violate your rights.”

  The legislation rests on a well-established legal principle known as the anti-commandeering doctrine. Simply put, the federal government cannot “commandeer” or coerce states into implementing or enforcing federal acts or regulations – constitutional or not. The anti-commandeering doctrine rests primarily on four Supreme Court cases dating back to 1842. The 1997 case, Printz v. US, serves as the modern cornerstone.”

ACTION ITEMS

” If you live in Arizona:  take action to support SB1294 HERE.

If you live in Florida: take action to support HB733 HERE.

All other other states: take action to get your state on board, and protect the 2nd Amendment HERE. “

You can read the bill here while the Tenth Amendment Center has more on the story .

Cell Phone Video Contradicts Sheriff’s Version Of Deputy-Involved Killing

 

 

Arizona Sheriff Shoots Unarmed Man

 

 

 

” An Arizona deputy shot and killed a man claiming he was reaching for a gun, but a cell phone video shows the man had raised his hands in the air.

  However, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu insists the man should have been killed much earlier because he wasn’t complying with their orders.

  But obviously Babeu is trying to spin the story after the cell phone video contradicted their earlier rendition of the facts.

According to CBS5:

  A witness shot the video on a cell phone. It shows the final moments of the standoff, when deputies were ordering Manuel Longoria to surrender. The deputies had their weapons drawn and fired five bean bag rounds at the suspect, in addition to Taser rounds.”
