Kerplunk! Sheriff Penzone falls from grace

That didn’t take long.  Paul Penzone, the new shurff in town, is already feeling the wrath of the newspaper that couldn’t wait to see him unseat former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had been reelected to an unprecedented six 4-year terms. 

The upset stung, but was not unexpected since Republican Arpaio was in the eye of the storm for doing the job he was repeatedly elected to do. It didn’t hurt that Penzone was the darling of the illegal alien protectors at the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) or that he had secured the financial backing of open borders multi-billionaire globalist George Soros. In August 2016, Politico reported that Soros was working behind the scenes throughout the nation to overhaul the U.S. Justice system — working to elect liberal prosecutors and law enforcement professionals as a means of loosening America’s criminal justice structure. Electing Democrat Paul Penzone was a part of that ambitious scheme.

With this background, fast forward to a recent newspaper editorial. Elvia Diaz takes on Penzone, chastising him for wanting to replace the court ordered advisory panel put in place to hamstring Joe Arpaio.  Count on the fact that the word “controversial” is still used in conjunction with Joe Arpaio. That’s de rigueur. No mention is made of the fact that Penzone has referred to illegal invaders as “guests.”

The ostensibly independent six-member panel, arising out of a lawsuit, was mandated by U.S. District Court Judge Murray Snow, who has routinely evidenced his own biases. Since then-sheriff Arpaio opted out of playing games, the panel members are all recommended by the ACLU which represents the plaintiffs in the ongoing Melendres case.

But why go after their pet Penzone? Paul Penzone wants to change the members and configuration from six to five members. In exerting independence, he is distressing both editorialist Diaz— the obvious Linda Valdez successor-in-training —- and the Hispanic activists who are now attempting to rein him in. What a surprise.  He doesn’t find this muzzling any more appealing than Arpaio did. He says the antagonistic positions of the current panel members make the situation unworkable and has announced he “won’t respond to unreasonable demands or unrealistic expectations.”

Diaz chastises Penzone, warning him there could be another Arpaio waiting to challenge him in four years.

A liberal, Penzone has set up citizens panels to advise him on other issues that focus on blacks, Hispanics and homosexuals. But according to the report, the “activists” say those groups are composed of Penzone’s sympathizers and don’t speak for “undocumented immigrants“ —– which this site chooses to refer to in more precise terms as “illegal aliens,” since we don‘t adhere to the AP Stylebook.

Silly us. We were laboring under the obvious misconception that the sheriff of one of the largest counties in the United States represented us all — even white, non-Hispanic heterosexuals who happen to be citizens.

Imagine having the tenacity to hold such brazenly seditious thoughts! Then again, that’s likely why you’re reading Seeing Red AZ in the first place.

    Another fact-filled post. Just wish SRAZ had reminded readers that Socialist Soros has also been funding John McAmensty for years. They share a desire to normalize America’s illegal invaders and bring in more. John McCain and Jeff Flake never miss an opportunity to collude with liberals to push through what they call “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.” The failed “Gang of Eight” was just such a project. But they’ll be back with another. McCain has said he’ll never stop in an effort to honor the memory of his liberal open borders buddy Ted Kennedy.

    Penzone foolishly thought that he could please/appease those whom he refers to as ‘guests” and their squad of supporters.

    Doing away with tent city; pink boxer shorts, and baloney sandwiches will win Paul no points.

    It is impossible to please those who get every good thing handed to them with nothing expected in return.

    Just last week, Penzone sent a white, more-than-middle-aged MCSO Lt. to a huge homeowners meeting in Sun City. He was there to announce that MCSO is beginning a brand spanking new crackdown on traffic violations. Wonder where the money collected will go?——pedicures for Penzone’s guests?

    The officer admitted that about 50% of all violations and accidents in Sun City are caused by “transient drivers” (new leftist lingo for snowbirds and commercial vendors).

    How interesting is the timing—just when most of the snowbirds have flown north. Let’s not offend them.

    It was disclosed several years ago that the county and other jurisdictions don’t bother to even try to collect on citations issued to drivers of vehicles with out of state registration or commercial vehicles registered in AZ. The excuse given: the clerical costs associated with all the paperwork is burdensome.

    Which means that once again, in yet another way, full time AZ residents are being held to a different standard.

    Paul Penzone ought to make good on his description of the illegals and bring some of those he considers “guests” home for dinner. If they decide they like his house and don’t want to leave, well, he and his family will just have to make the best of it. That’s what Maricopa is supposed to do as a county, Arizona is supposed to do as a state, and the rest of the country is supposed to do as a sovereign nation.
