Phx’s tyrannical Mayor Stanton sabotages 1st Amendment

Wants to silence President Trump, shut down Aug. 22 Phoenix Convention Center rally

Feeling energized after arbitrarily deciding that a Phoenix street name he found offensive needed to go, though the longtime residents who lived there steadfastly petitioned to retain it, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton is back, bat in hand.  This time he’s taking on the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the President of the United States. This big, bad lawyer should know better, but his ego has swelled to the point of enveloping his brain. 

Liberal Democrat Stanton has now announced that he’s “disappointed” that President Donald Trump plans to rally supporters in Phoenix next week. “’It is my hope that more sound judgment prevails and that he delays his visit,’ Stanton said. In fact, Stanton ludicrously links the visit and request for the president to “delay his plans” to visit Phoenix “as the nation is still healing from the tragic events in Charlottesville.”

Leaving no room for doubt as to his skewed ideology Stanton adds that if Trump is coming to Phoenix to announce a pardon for former Maricopa County sheriff Arpaio — now 85 years old and potentially facing a 6-month sentence for carrying out his duties — “then it will be clear that his true intent is to enflame emotions and further divide the nation,” ridiculously claiming  a “pardon would amount to an endorsement of racism.”  A federal judge ruled that Arpaio’s officers had racially profiled Hispanics, a charge Arpaio denied.

That’s the mantra of liberals, who have taken to heart Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s tactic ofnever allowing a serious crisis to go to waste.  He made the statement as chief of staff for Barack Obama.

Radical leftist CD 3 U.S. RepRaul Grijalva (read the linked Jerry Kammer exposé revealing his Saul Alinsky roots) will be leading a band of leftist protesters outside the Phoenix Convention Center. Grijalva once called for a boycott of Arizona, a job killer for his own constituents, many of whom work in the service industries.

Stanton is obviously laying the groundwork for grander ventures, having filed for the position of Secretary of State, often the gateway to the Arizona Governor‘s Office. At the beginning of the 2017-2018 reporting period, he was already sitting atop over a $ half million — $510,150.39, to be exact — though no current donors are listed. Equality Arizona, a local LGBTQ advocacy group, was the recipient of $1,000 for an event table.  Don’t be surprised if slippery Stanton ditches the SOS pursuit for an office with more heft.  He’s obviously covered all contingencies by naming his campaign “Stanton for Arizona.”

For a memory refresher, wander back to 2011 to see who Greg Stanton actually is.

    Greg Stanton is a dedicated liberal owned by the unions. Whether or not he wants President Trump’s rally in Phoenix is of no consequence. Trump has drawn large crowds each of the numerous times he’s visited Arizona and he will do so again. Stanton needs to focus on leading the Gay Pride parade as he’s previously done. That’s his voter base. It’s doubtful many of the attendees at the Convention Center next week will be voting for Liberal Stanton.

    Hope to see you all there!!

    Greg Stanton isn’t worthy of shining either Joe Arpaio’s or Donald Trump’s shoes.
    The rally will take place and the crowds will be noteworthy….AGAIN

    I wouldn’t vote for this liberal for dogcatcher. It’s time we turned the city of Phoenix RED to match the rest of the valley cities.

    In case you missed it, NFL Commish Roger Goodell was speaking at Univ of PHX Cardinals Stadium earlier this week.

    When asked about players refusing to respect our flag and our national anthem, Goodell went limp.

    Here’s the skinny:
    NFL Commissioner Goodell said that while the playing of the anthem is a special moment to him, “we also have to understand the other side.”
    Goodell made the comments at University of Phoenix Stadium during a 45-minute question-and-answer period with Arizona Cardinals club seat holders. One season ticket-holder, Bruce Olson, asked the commissioner whether players were going to continue to protest during the anthem and if anything could be done about it.
    “It’s one of those things where I think we have to understand that there are people that have different viewpoints,” Goodell said. “The national anthem is a special moment to me. It’s a point of pride. But we also have to understand the other side, that people do have rights and we want to respect those.”

    Just so you know:
    Several NFL Thugmillionaires have already started their disrespectful displays of anti-Americanism in pre-season games, which are underway.
    Is a statue or statues going to be erected to praise Kaepernik?

    Question – will Mayor Stanton give the stand order to Phx Chief Williams??? Be watchful.

    Also will the company “Crowds on Demand” who hired protestors @ $25/hr in Charlottsville be hiring here – their ad was in Craigslist. It seems they are possibly cupable for the violence, death and injuries – any attys thoughts?? The company is out of CA.

    Regarding Sheriff Joe:

    Roger Stone has penned an Opinion on dailycaller.com about Steve Bannon.

    It includes this information:

    . . . “When Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio who was a strong and articulate supporter of the President and his criticism of our current Immigration policies, was indicted for civil rights violations of prisoners in his custody the Obama Justice Department made certain he was tried under the wrong statue to deny him a jury trial.
    The Justice Department illegally monitored the Sheriffs communication with his lawyer as well as improperly communicating directly with the judge during his trial Arpaio’s prosecution is a political hit job and the government’s misconduct in his prosecution are certainly grounds for dismissal by the Trump Justice Department.
    Steve Bannon never mentioned the case to President who was shocked to learn about Arpaio’s conviction when he didn’t know about his trial. All of Arpaio’s phone calls to Bannon to protest his treatment by the Trump Justice Department went unanswered. . . “

    How is he able to keep getting elected and why do citizens put up with the cost of having high pad mayors and city managers?

    • Observer says:

      Who did you vote for in the Mayor’s race? Did you lift a finger to help the apposing candidate? Presumably you’re a citizen who is able to cast a ballot.
