Double murderer a dreamer?

The Arizona Republic newspaper, short on news and long on far-left opinion, fills its pages with sports, vacuous celebrity-based entertainment coverage, oversized photos and a load of editorializing. News content is slim, often lacking facts. The staff that remains pushes, ad nauseam, the dual agenda of amnesty for illegals —- along with in-state tuition for their children, now affectionately known as “dreamers” —- and same-sex marriage. They pause only long enough to give yet another uppercut to the jaw of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio as part of the ongoing attempt to decimate the dedicated and lifelong lawman.

To plump up the scant weekend news, the newspaper has devised bit of trickery labeled, “The Week in Review.” Rehashed articles from each day of the preceding week are reprinted. Among those considered worthy of regurgitation is one titled, “For 20 years, cop killer ‘living the dream’ in California.”

The five-paragraph report tells of Ernesto Salgado Martinez, an Indio, California resident, sentenced to death for the Aug. 15, 1995 murder of Arizona Department of Public Safety Officer Robert Martin, 57, who had pulled Martinez over for a traffic stop near Phoenix. Later that same day, Martinez crossed into California and used the dead officer’s service revolver to kill Randip Singh, 43, in Blythe during a convenience store robbery.

Although the Arizona Republic mentions Martinez’ name seven times in the short article and identifies him as one of the most dangerous prisoners in Riverside County and member of a notorious prison gang, the names of his victims were omitted. We found them and the facts of the Arizona case with a Google search. What the newspaper deemed important to focus on were his words of bravado in speaking to a judge on April 17, during a recent court hearing. “I’m housed here in Riverside,” Martinez boasted. “All is well. Living the dream.”

He still has not been tried for the California murder or extradited to Arizona to face the death penalty to which he was sentenced.

    Martinez doesn’t need to be tried in California. He’s been sentenced to death in Arizona and that penalty should be carried out. He needs to be extradited ASAP. Bankrupt California will never get around to trying him, but he is costing those taxpayers to keep him incarcerated, while he mocks the system.

    every amnesty supporter and those of you who voted/votes for them has the blood of murdered American citizens on their hands and they do not care.

    they care more about chamber of commerce money, creating a permanent democrat voting majority and lesser of two evils voting than American citizens.

    and to be completely clear, if it is not illegals leaving the country, including the status quo it IS amnesty

    • Frankly Speaking says:

      You’re describing Arizona’s entire congressional contingent, Republicans as well as Democrats.
      They’re ALL onboard the amnesty train, regardless of how slyly they configure their complicity. We all know we’ve been screwed by McCain for years, but remember McFlake is his eager accomplice. When Flake was in the US House, his closest congressional cohort was amnesty promoter Luis Gutierrez, who even complimented Jeff Flake for helping him “turn more red states blue:”

      Gutierrez specifically thanks Flake in this 2008 article “The Numbers Are On Our Side” in Illinois Progress:

      Every connservative should read it and keep the message in their heads when Flake’s re-election roll around. Flake needs to be tossed out on his RINO ass just as House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was by conservative political novice David Brat. IT CAN BE DONE!!!

      • azgary says:

        as you have said, its the ENTIRE congressional contingent, not just flake and McCain, they have all made the choice of amnesty over American citizens, and all deserve every bit as much contempt and scorn as flake/McCain.

        senators, the az 5, graham, bruce ash (who sponsored/wrote the gop amnesty surrender) and newest pro illegal alien, anti American, martha mcamnesty mcsally is the new judas, and a PERFECT example of why lesser of two evils voting is the road to hell:

        “20 Traitors: Republicans Who Voted To Gut America’s Military Using Amnestied Illegal Aliens”
        Despite the massive Republican success and passage of the amendment, a whopping 20 Republicans still joined all the Democrats in voting against the Brooks amendment. They are: Reps. Jeff Denham (R-CA), Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO)
        Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) , Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA) Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL)Charles Dent (R-PA), Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Rep. Bob Dold (R-IL) Rep. Chris Gibson (R-NY), Rep. Richard Hanna (R-NY) Rep. John Katko (R-NY), Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ) Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-NJ) Rep.

        Martha McSally (R-AZ)

        Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) Rep. Dave Reichert (R-WA) Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL)Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) and Rep. David Valadao (R-CA).

        What’s more, this comes after a rancorous battle in the House Rules Committee this week—where extra attention was drawn to that committee’s chairman Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX)the process for amendments drew scrutiny too, due to the extraordinarily controversial nature of Gallego’s extreme amendment. Sessions eventually, along with House Armed Services Committee chairman Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX), backed Brooks’ amendment— , but the only way it got on the bill in the first place was because of a group of Republican members in the Armed Services committee not including Thornberry voting to add it into the bill.

        The six Republicans who voted for the Gallego amendment in Armed Services markup are: McSally, MacArthur, LoBiondo, Gibson, Coffman and Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-MT). It’s extremely notable that Zinke did, because when the Brooks amendment came to the floor he turned on the Gallego effort despite being previously supportive of it—ultimately voting for Brooks’ amendment to eliminate the Gallego amnesty text.

        Rep. Steve Russell (R-OK), who like Zinke served in the U.S. military and is one of the veterans from this current freshman congressional class, told Breitbart News that the Gallego amendment was unacceptable and jeopardizes national security.

        Will “republican” diehards NEVER learn that “lesser of two evils” is sending us straight to hell, and are helping them do it?

        I find it odd that each time I peruse the MCRC Briefs I’m certain to find the latest chapter in the patriotic activities of Congresswoman Martha McSally (R-AZ) who seems to have her hand in everything from ‘concerns’ for our military to memorials for former governor Raul Castro to donating her eyeballs to the blind.

        Seems they never misses an opportunity to post her latest endeavors in ‘protecting’ our military personnel. Apparently there hasn’t been room to report McSally’s yea vote on congressional rep Ruben Gallego’s defense bill amendment to allow Obama’s “dreamers” to enlist in the armed services.

        Now that amendment has been removed with Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) amendment – to which McSally vote no – that has skipped notice as well. It would seem that the good folks in McSally’s congressional district have gone and elected themselves Raul Grijalva in drag wearing an “R” disguise. I wonder how much the AZGOPe has saved up for McSally’s reelection bid in 2016?

      more blood on the hands of the pro amnesty politicians and those who vote for them, particularly under the “lesser of two evils” guise. :
      CONFIRMED: Obama ‘DREAMER’ accused of murdering 4 Americans after being granted AMNESTY

      people need to wake up to the fact that republican amnesty is no different than democrat amnesty, obamas amnesty is no different than mccains, which is no different than walker or cruz’s and don’t be fooled by those arguments that legalization is any different than citizenship, all will end with the same net result eventually; a permanent democrat voting majority, the end of the middle class and our nation. Illegals leaving the country by choice or by force is the ONLY acceptable solution

    The victims are incidental. This piece of human refuse is the main attraction in the Repulsive’s coverage.

    Our Nation, once the leader of the free World, is becoming a pile of junk in field of garbage. Our once free Republic, composing of millions of foreign Nationals who legally came to America, is dying.

    The Nation has packs of terrorist enclaves oriented to destroying the Governmental Constitution this Nation was founded upon in 1778.

    Many live on Welfare income, thirty percent (30%) of which is contributed to terrorist insurgency in support of the enclaves in which they live.

    Illegal foreign Nationals, coupled with Prisoners discharged from local prisons all converted to fanatical Muslim acts, are being trained in over 700 camps here within these UNITED STATES. Right now their are over 36 MILLION (36,000,000,000) ILLEGALS living in this Country. Most all are willing to fight for ISIS.

    This is only one area where all Americans are going down in defeat while having fun with their I-Phones.

    Now American Special Forces are going to be conducting maneuvers within neighborhoods all around this Nation of ours beginning July 15, 2015 thru September 15, 2015. This is being done in full uniform and battle gear including guns and ammunition. We are told that all guns will be firing blanks when these maneuvers are conducted at night in town across America.

    Once we get to the point where the mainstream media report “news” such as that in the AZ Republic where they ‘feature’ an illegal alien murderer of a police officer and a person in another state saying the killer says he’s ‘living the dream,’ it shows that our society is lost.

    There was obviously a concerted effort by the powers that be in D.C. to ignore the cries of citizens for the past 20 years to secure the border and deport illegal aliens. The politicians pretended to listen in the beginning – now – there’s no pretense.

    Rather than support Joe Arpaio, John McCain works against what he’s trying to do – enforce the law. The U.S. Attorney General was/is after Arpaio for years.

    As far as elections go, it will be like the Catholic Church under this Pope – people will stop participating. When we do vote, they stab us in the back and the GOP Gives Obama Power. How long can anyone take that.

    • azgary says:

      nice, I will be borrowing and using “GOP-Gives Obama Power”.

      kudos on that

      • Conservative Since Birth says:

        From John Roberts and Obamacare right through to TPP, Obama couldn’t have made it without the enabling of McConnell, Boehner, McCain, Flake (Cuba) and hundreds of “bipartisan” GOP-ers always there for him. Never saw anything like it.

    Instead of blandly covering this miscarriage of justice involving serial murderer Ernesto Salgado Martinez, the AZ Republic would lead the charge against him….. IF his name was Sean Patrick O’Kelly.
