Senator-elect Kyrsten Sinema absolutely hates her state, Arizona.

You’ll see plenty of examples showing as much down below in this article.

In the midterm elections, though, Sinema defeated fellow Congresswoman Martha McSally.

Former Sen. Jon Kyl was chosen by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey to fill John McCain’s seat.

Now, Kyl says he’s leaving!

U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl will resign from the U.S. Senate on Dec. 31, The Arizona Republic has confirmed, setting up a second appointment by Gov. Doug Ducey to the seat once occupied by the late John McCain.

Kyl wrote: “Thank you for appointing me to the U.S. Senate to fill the vacancy created by John McCain’s death. It has been an honor and a privilege to again serve the people of Arizona.”

When I accepted your appointment, I agreed to complete the work of the 115th Congress and then reevaluate continuing to serve. I have concluded that it would be best if I resign so that your new appointee can begin the new term with all other Senators in January 2019 and can serve a full two (potentially four) years. Therefore, I will resign from the U.S. Senate effective 11:59 p.m. EST December 31, 2018.

Which means…

There is intense interest from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, for Ducey to appoint outgoing Rep. Martha McSally, the Republican who lost to Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema for Arizona’s other U.S. Senate seat. Sinema will be sworn into office Jan. 3.

Republican donors spent millions of dollars McSally’s election effort and likely want to see that investment pay dividends. Ducey and McSally met recently, but it is unclear if there was discussion about a Senate appointment.

68,000 new votes were counted for Sinema Saturday after the election.

From The Hill:

Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D) extended her lead over Rep. Martha McSally (R) in the nail-biter race for a U.S. Senate seat in Arizona, after the state’s largest county released new vote tallies Saturday night.

Sinema expanded her lead over McSally to 28,688 votes out of more than 2.1 million cast, a margin of 1.35 percentage points.

Maricopa County, home of Phoenix, disclosed nearly 68,000 new votes on Saturday. Earlier Saturday, Pima, Mohave and Navajo counties all posted new vote tallies as they work through late absentee ballots and early voting.

Eric Holder, the only cabinet-level member in history to be held in contempt of Congress, paraphrased Michelle Obama by saying, “When they go low, we kick ’em.”

They being Republicans.

Sinema must’ve taken Holder’s words to heart, bashing her state left and right.

She was even caught by undercover camera saying you “can’t be talking about gun bans” in Arizona because Arizonans will “actually shoot you.”

In the past, Sinema bashed the U.S. military as zombie-like terrorist slaughterers of the innocent.

She said stay-at-home mothers are “leeches.”

She detests representing Arizona as a Congresswoman, claiming the Grand Canyon state should serve as a “warning symbol.”

She supported a lawyer convicted for aiding a terrorist.

She equated American soldiers’ deaths with those of illegal immigrants.

She claimed Arizona is the “meth lab of democracy.”

WATCH:

She called Arizonans “crazy.”

A vote for Sinema was a vote for a woman who absolutely loathes not only Arizona, but America.

It could not have been more evident.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
