AZ Republic’s mugging of Sheriff Arpaio begins in earnest

September 30, 2012

Blitzkrieg timed to take down our sheriff

This past Friday, we wrote Joe Arpaio: The icon and the insignificant machine, explaining how the dying Periódico de la República de Arizona (ArizonaRepublic) has timed its most vicious bombardment against him to coincide with early ballots.

In that post, we explained how the newspaper, using chicanery and deception to advance its leftwing agenda, began with a small, gray box advertising their anti-Arpaio multi-pronged assault in the Wednesday edition.  The box using the words “A betrayal of trust”  has grown larger each day. Today, in the Sunday edition, it takes up over half of the front page, with six full pages devoted to assaulting Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

We invite you to read Joe Arpaio‘s impressive resume, detailing his lifelong career in public service — first in the military, then as a police officer, followed by his years in federal law enforcement worldwide, culminating with heading the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration for the state of Arizona. This was all prior to running for Maricopa County Sheriff, where he has been reelected to an unprecedented five 4-year terms.  The exceedingly popular Arpaio is currently running for his sixth term, which galls the open border/amnesty purveyors at the daily newspaper.

Arpaio is not the easily manipulated, finger-to-the-wind sheriff the newspaper would prefer. He has made a commitment to the citizens of Maricopa County, taking the duties of  his job seriously. He fights back. This was a campaign ad from his previous election. When it comes to the daily newspaper, follow the sheriff’s example:

Sowell explains Obama: The rhetoric, the reality

September 30, 2012

“The role of a confidence man is not to convince skeptics, but to help the gullible believe what they want to believe. Most of what Barack Obama says sounds very persuasive if you don’t know the facts — and often sounds like sheer nonsense if you do. But he is not trying to convince skeptics, nor worried about looking ridiculous to informed people who won’t vote for him anyway.”

The brilliant Dr. Thomas Sowell has written a series of masterful commentaries explaining Barack Obama. This recent one, Obama Versus Obama: Part III, is the tour de force, although they each build upon one another and should each be read in order.

Former AZ Congressman Sam Steiger dies at 83

September 29, 2012

Writing an obituary about Sam Steiger is a task best taken by a stranger.  Many were aware he suffered a debilitating stroke a decade ago, so his death at age 83 should not have been unexpected. But to those who knew the brilliant, witty and irascible Steiger in his heyday — and beyond — it is inconceivable to think in terms of a final notice for this extraordinary individual.

His Wikipedia page tells the tales of his highs and lows in the political realm. If you didn’t know him, this will give a bit of the flavor of the New York-born, Jewish Prescott cowboy/rancher, state senator, five-term Arizona Congressman, Prescott mayor and staunch political conservative — who ran the gamut from a decorated Korean war military hero who later returned to combat arenas as a Vietnam war correspondent —  to a brash burro shooter and cheered Whiskey Row crosswalk painter.  He was everyman yet had no equal.

Rest in peace, Sam Steiger.

Car chase in AZ desert goes horribly wrong & Update

September 28, 2012

An unidentified man being chased by police along Interstate 10 ditched his car after turning onto a dirt road near Tonopah, AZ. After running erratically through the desert, he eventually raised a gun to his head and shot himself.  Fox News’ Shepard Smith apologizes for the video — although the network cut away from the suicide since the helicopter recording it was on a 5-second tape delay. The live helicopter video was taken by Phoenix affiliate KSAZ-TV Channel 10.


The dead man has since been identified as 33-year-old Jodan Romero, who had a felony warrant for a parole violation on a weapons charge.  Phoenix Police said Romero  had “a criminal record involving numerous violent crimes.” it is now known he shot at both police and the helicopter during the 90-minute high speed police pursuit.
