It’s time to stand with Sheriff Joe

When it comes to Sheriff Joe Arpaio, facts are incidental to AZ Republic reporters

The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic)  contrives any opportunity in its attempt to topple career law enforcement professional Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The usual cued-up team goes into overdrive on command. There are the contemptible editorials passing themselves off as news reports, partnered with the actual editorials that are coordinated with the vicious rants from columnists, accompanied by the constant onslaught of derisive cartoons. Editorial writer Linda Valdez, leftist extraordinaire, jumps in with what were previously and correctly called “Quick Hits.” The recipients of her barrage need Kevlar protection.

The coordinated effort among the newspaper’s few remaining staffers doesn’t miss a trick in attempting to skew the sheriff. The República is stridently pro-amnesty, open borders and supports in-state tuition for foreign nationals. Multi-page sob stories bolstering illegals are its stock in trade.

Recently the daily weighed in with yet another article mocking Sheriff Arpaio. Though brief, the intent was to slam him for asking his supporters for financial help. The smug reporters once again were unable to get their facts straight, even misspelling the name of his longtime campaign spokesman.

Sheriff Arpaio writes of incurring legal bills, and often having to personally pay for attorneys to represent him in these cases. “I do not have the personal wealth or the wherewithal to keep up with the costly demands of paying for attorneys to defend me.” He affirms his intent “to keep fighting for what I know is right. I took an oath to protect and defend the US Constitution and I will keep that oath until my last breath.” 

Arpaio has become the eye of the storm for addressing the crisis of illegal immigration. For his efforts, he has paid dearly as the ACLU, advocacy groups representing illegals and left-leaning federal judges have gone after him. His legal costs continue to escalate. He has also committed to running for another term, writing, “It’s going to take a lot of resources to combat the attacks and false allegations against me and my deputies. We anticipate the hardest campaign in Maricopa County history to remove me due to my unyielding stance on upholding the Rule of Law.”

He needs our support now more than ever.  His legal defense fund can be accessed here. His 2016 reelection fund is here. Give what you can.  We need this good man to continue to serve the citizens of Maricopa County.

    We are all fortunate to have a man of Joe Arpaio’s integrity and background heading law enforcement for Maricopa County. He’s been doing the job for us. Now it really is time to support him. Imagine having a liberal leading the sheriff’s office. That’s what the radicals at the Arizona Repulsive want and who they have endorsed in past elections.

  2. MacBeth says:

    Joe Arpaio headed up the Arizona office of the federal DEA before becoming sheriff. He didn’t just fall off the turnip truck. THAT’S what the liberals hate about him and why they go after him with such a vengeance.

    I’ll start by saying that I sent Sheriff Joe a check two weeks ago.

    Saw a piece on the local TV station KTVK this morning on Sheriff Joe’s “polling” and how his numbers have gone down since the last election. I thought it was unfair – because of the beating he’s taking from Obama’s “Justice” Department and that is the headline – how Sheriff Joe “profiles” Hispanics. Low-information voters pick up on headlines and don’t bother with the rest of the story. Plus snide “reporters” like Dennis Welch love to take shots at him.

    Here’s a man in his 80’s that I look forward to reelecting. He’s got character and loves this country unlike another who’s heading toward 80 and outlived his usefulness many decades ago who couldn’t shine Sheriff Joe’s shoes.

    If Sheriff Joe isn’t reelected and Maricopa County gets an Obama-type “law enforcement” sheriff – we can kiss good, stable law enforcement goodbye.

      You couldn’t be more correct.
      Amnesty loving, democrat co-conspirator John McCain is the problem, not Joe Arpaio. Fortunately, the liberal newspaper is hemorrhaging subscriptions and is on it’s last legs with fewer and fewer readers. Once their aged demographic is gone, the AZ Repugnant can fold up its tent and say. “Adios.”

      I’ve lived here my entire life and with the exception of the savagery heaped on Senate president Russell Pearce have never seen news coverage as biased against a true patriot. Arpaio served our country in the military and was a police officer before joining DES and later being elected and repeatedly reelected as sheriff in one of the nation’s largest counties. We are indeed privileged this decent man is willing to take the constant battering.

    Thanks for the nudge, SRAZ. My wife and I are onboard with ‘America’s Sheriff’ and will chip in on both funds.

  5. Borderhawk says:

    Apparently McSalmon is considering a Senate run. McSalmon needs to stay out of it. The feud between McSalmon and Arpaio could kill the anti-McCain vote.

    This is a coward’s move by McSalmon. Waiting until the polls are completely in his favor.

    We need a generic candidate like Kelli Ward with a short record because McCain is going to hammer McSalmon on his amnesty flip flop which is ironic in many ways.

    off topic but interesting:

    “Phoenix Bikers Sponsor ‘Draw Muhammad’ Contest on Friday

    On May 29, bikers in Pheonix, Arizona, are holding a “Draw Muhammad” contest outside the mosque at the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix, which is where the two gunmen who opened fire in Garland, Texas, allegedly attended.

    Nadir Soofi and Elton Simpson drove from Phoenix to Garland and opened fire outside of the Curtis Culwell Center on May 3, while a Muhammad cartoon contest was being held. The two men were quickly killed by police working security at the event.

    In the weeks since that event, numerous media pundits have criticized Pamela Geller for organizing the Muhammad cartoon contest to begin with. At what she described as her freedom of speech and expression, pundits recoiled and said she was asking for it by allegedly antagonizing Muslims.

    For example, following the attack, The New York Times said Geller’s contest “was not really about free speech. It was an exercise in bigotry and hatred posing as a blow for freedom.” The paper tried to explain that those who see it otherwise are confusing “hate speech” with free speech.

    Enter former Marine Jon Ritzheimer, who is organizing Friday’s “Draw Muhammad” contest in Phoenix.

    According to Vocativ, Ritzheimer says his contest is an exercise in free speech and is being held, in part, to respond to the “liberals” who criticized those gathered in Texas with Geller instead of criticizing the two Islamic men who walked up to a cartoon contest and opened fire.

    He put it this way:

    This is not about race or any other side agenda that the Liberals are making it out to be. This is purely 100% a Freedom of Speech Rally. Stand Tall and show that we can PEACEFULLY protest our rights that are under attack. That is the sole cause for this Rally and Islam wants to silence us.

    Ritzheimer is also asking all attendees to exercise their Second Amendment rights and bring firearms in case the expression of a First Amendment right “comes under the much anticipated attack.”

    The group is meeting at Denny’s by the Islamic Community Center at 5 pm and plans to walk to the mosque itself at 6 and hold the contest right outside. The current president of the center is Usama Shami. He responded to Ritzheimer’s announcement by saying, “Everyone has a right to be a bigot. Everyone has a right to be racist.”

    if I didn’t have to work, I would consider going, could end up pretty interesting though it may end up hazardous.
