Martha McSally beats out former Gabbie Giffords aid for Congressional Seat

U.S. Representative Ron Barber, an Arizona Democrat and former aide to Gabrielle Giffords, has officially lost his re-election bid to the Republican challenger in November's congressional elections, a judge certified on Wednesday.

A superior court judge declared Martha McSally, a retired Air Force colonel and a pioneer of women's combat aviation in the 1990s, the winner after a state-mandated recount showed she won by 167 votes in the Nov. 4 election.

"There's no getting around that this was an incredibly close and hard-fought race. After what's been a long campaign season, it's time to come together and heal our community," McSally said in a statement.

Congratulations to Martha McSally and to the State of Arizona; only good things can come from her election. Another Pro-gunner for the GOP. I know it won't shut up Gabby or stop her boycotting the NRA. She should be beating up on the guy who shot her and make sure he never see the light of day again.

A tight race maybe but there was a lot of people who felt sorry for Gabby Gifford and voted for her if she had not been shot the race wouldn't have been close. Her gun stand was not good for her, when her Husband was cough beating there dog. And him and her holding a assault weapon in the open ground. It send a message to the people do as I say not as I do! Well she's gone for now but wait Obama will have her as the poster girl for his gun control push in April or May 2015. A good victory for Colonel McSally I wish her all the blessings she needs to fight Obama's agenda?

people are starting to realize that whatever this administration has been doing for the past six years...they do not want anymore of it. republicans are constantly shooting themselves in the foot everyday, so it is any wonder that we won as much as we did. the democrat leadership has not provided any leadership or pro-American message to the people sat all...the republican congress should get themselves a communication czar asap...because nobody knows what is going on specifically. the next thing they have to do is to stop throwing the teaparty and conservatives under the bus...all across this country the republicans have won because of the conservatives and the teaparty.....wake up people because just because we have won many elections...the battle is still ahead.

There are a whole bunch of moronic voters in Arizona that Martha McSally only won by 167 votes.  A pox on all Arizona liberals.

We in AZ are thrilled for Martha she won this hands down and good riddance to Giffords and her gun toting hypocrisy Barber was a total sham

Tucson is the home of LaRaza and the liberals for amnesty She won period!

Not to mention home to Hamas, and the brotherhood.

McSally actually gained 6 extra votes after the final recount.

She won despite "sympathy votes" for Gabriel Gifford's former seat, and despite the US Supreme Court's decision to strike-down Arizona's voter ID requirement, back in June 2013, meaning that an ample amount of fraudulent voting was probably taking place.

I had to show my ID and my voters card before I could vote.  But I live in Phoenix.

& we can add a Retired Air Force Colonel Woman to the list for being a Pioneer of Women Combat Aviation

Thank you Colonel for your time in Service to Our Country & WAY TO GO Lady !!!!

Great news.  Thank GOD...

Oh, I am so relieved she won!  One more democrat kicked out!

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
