Trump Rivals Divided Over Attending GOP Convention With a little more than two weeks before the GOP convention, Donald Trump’s former primary foes are far from presenting a unified front around their party’s nominee Read the full story here

Nigel Farage Announced This Morning that he’s resigning as leader of the UK Independence Party more than a week after Britain voted to leave the European Union. Farage said he will continue to support the movement, but he had done his bit and will stand down. FoxNews.com

49% Say Clinton Lied To Victims' Families About Benghazi Attack The final report released this week by the special congressional committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, hasn't significantly changed voters' opinions about how the incident will impact Hillary Clinton's bid for the White House. Still, nearly half of voters believe the then-secretary of State lied to the victims' families about the nature of the attack. Read More

FBI Gave 2-Word Order Immediately Before Clinton/Lynch Airport Meeting In Phoenix Attorney General Loretta Lynch had a meeting with former President Bill Clinton in a Phoenix airport earlier this week which she has said was limited to small talk. But the reporter who broke the story come forward Thursday with more information that made this already implausible story even more so. The Daily Caller reported Friday that Christopher Sign of KNXV in Phoenix told Fox News that FBI officials on the tarmac had told reporters: “No photos.” Sign told Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly on Thursday: “She arrives, some people step off of her plane, the former president steps into her plane. They then speak for 30 minutes privately, the FBI there on the tarmac instructing everybody around: ‘No photos. No pictures. No cellphones.'”

'Never-Trump'-Is-Never-Happening-At-The-RNC Anti-Trump activists plotting a coup at the national convention in Cleveland this month more likely face a drubbing of their own. Any attempt to block Trump would begin in the convention's rules committee, an 112-member panel of delegates where Trump’s enemies had hoped to make a stand against the presumptive nominee. Through dozens of interviews and a review of public statements, however, POLITICO has determined that at least 72 members of the panel intend to smooth Trump's path to the nomination — not hinder it. Just six members say they'll work against Trump, and of those six, two said they'd bail on the effort if they don't find sufficient support. "If this has a shot, and if this continues to develop ... I will support the freeing of the delegates," said one of the committee members. It's a mismatch so yawning that anti-Trump delegates may find themselves unable to muster even the minimal support of the committee it would take to send their plans to the full convention, where all 2,472 delegates would be forced to weigh in…

Fox News: FBI -Agents-Are-Livid-About-Clinton-Lynch-Meeting FBI agents are "livid" about Attorney General Loretta Lynch's meeting with Bill Clinton, Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reported today on Outnumbered. Herridge said that, according to a well-placed FBI source, the agents are not just upset about the poor optics of the meeting. She explained that Bill Clinton is a potential witness because the FBI is separately investigating corruption allegations against the Clinton Foundation.

Man-Arrested-In-Tucson-For-Conspiracy-To-Commit-Terrorism-Against-Government-Buildings In Ariz Authorities say they have apprehended a man who planned to commit acts of terror against government buildings in two Arizona counties. Mia Garcia, a spokeswoman for the Arizona Attorney's Office, said 18-year-old Mahin Khan was arrested Friday in Tucson after a joint investigation between her office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Garcia said Khan planned to commit terrorism against government buildings in Pima and Maricopa counties. Garcia and the FBI said Khan's planned attacks did not involve the Fourth of July or any related festivities. Authorities said there were no outstanding suspects sought in the case, and said there was no threat to public safety. Khan faces two charges: conspiracy to commit terrorism and terrorism, Garcia said.

Bruce-Ash-Republican-Rules-Chairman-Moves-To-Lock-In-Donald-Trump-As-Nominee

Former Senator Russell Pearce: The “NEVERTRUMP” crowd are in reality Hillary supporters. As more and more information comes out about the evil, lying, corrupt Hillary Clinton, we still have the “nevertrump” crowd. What does it take to recognize betrayal to our Party and more critically our Nation? As Sheriff Joe calls them “gutless Republicans. I might go a little further and recognize their betrayal of America. “The “nevertrump” crowd are really Hillary supporters, no other way to put it. We were asked and pleaded with to vote for McCain - the most hated and distrusted Republican in Washington with Flake right beside him - and yep, we voted for them. Now we have the same crowd that supports the bi-partisan Washington Cartel trying to sneak in their Hillary support by working against Trump. How disgusting and hypocritical.

CONGRESSIONAL STATEMENTS

Please comply with the 300 word limit policy. If statements exceeds the limit, it will be edited.

Congresswoman Martha McSally: This weekend, we celebrate our independence and birth as a new nation. When our Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence 240 years ago, they not only were seeking to throw off the yoke of tyranny, but to create something entirely new: a representative government designed to uplift its citizens, not oppress them. This government would be founded on the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and would derive its sole authority, not from a royal bloodline, but from the people. This bold, new system of government has been handed down through the generations to us. Many American men and women have fought and died to defend and preserve it. And today is no different. Our country, and indeed our very way of life, are under attack from radical Islamic extremism. Our enemies seek not just our elimination, but the ideals for which we stand. While we must remain vigilant, we must not cower. This is a generational fight. It requires our full dedication to defeating our enemies and keeping our country safe. I will continue to lead in Congress to make sure we have an aggressive strategy to defeat ISIS and other Islamic extremist groups who seek our destruction. I thank all those serving overseas to keep us safe and ensure the torch is liberty is passed on. We are the land of the free because of the brave. And as you celebrate our freedoms this weekend, I wish you and your family a very happy Fourth of July!

COUNCILMEN SPEAK

300 word limit. If statements exceeds the limit, it will be edited.

Scottsdale City Councilwoman Virginia Korte: On this holiday, as most of the world is in turmoil and discontent, I will be contemplating the significance of our freedom.  I hope that between all of the events and activities in which you are participating, you will also have time for reflection.
When I think about how much our country has accomplished since its inception only 240 years ago, the thing that comes most to mind is our country’s grit.  It was sheer grit fueled by conviction, vision and hope -- and driven by our forefathers’ quest for freedom that made America what it is today. Those qualities are not just the ones on which our country was founded, they still reverberate across the land. These principles also continue to resonate with us here in our great city of Scottsdale. I believe my campaign for City Council is about creating a vision and being a voice for our city’s future.  But to be successful in that endeavor, it is important that we honor our heritage and respect those who sacrificed and toiled to help make our city so special. This holiday is important to all of us, no matter what our political affiliations and philosophies.  It is a time for celebrating our freedom, enjoying family and friends and reflecting on our good fortune of living in the greatest country in the world and the best city in America. Happy July 4th! PS:  Please keep your family, friends and pets safe.
