AZ Republic denied Arpaio perp walk, mug shot, goes apoplectic

Joe Arpaio graciously expresses appreciation of President Trump’s pardon

Even as the local newspaper anticipated the pardon President Donald Trump granted former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the collective rage of its editorialists, reporters and columnists is palpable. We’ve summed it up in our headline.  The mob of thugs posing as reporters and editors have been exposed by their own words, which you will not read here.

But who rates a stand alone quote on the front page? None other than Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS), a longtime and current committed amnesty-supporter righteously stating:

“The President has the authority to make this pardon, but in doing so….undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law as Mr. Arpaio has shown no remorse for his actions.” It was excerpted from this full statement released by ASS’s office.

Jeff Flake, who has already inflamed the Republican base with his incessant anti-Trump rhetoric, amnesty schemes, and recently released 140-page anti-conservative pamphlet masquerading as a book, is running for reelection and wasn’t as quick on the draw. His bottom-dragging polling numbers tell his story. Flake has been reprimanded by Republican National Committee chair Ronna Romney McDaniel.

Sean Hannity devoted a segment on his FOX nightly show to telling Flake that hehas lost his way Hannity recently endorsed Dr. Kelli Ward in the 2018 Arizona senate race.

So does SRAZ.

    This newspaper is worthless! I’m happy to see the pardon come through sheriff Joe.

  2. Observer says:

    Obama pardoned convicted felons and not a peep from the AZ Repukelick.

  3. Saguaro Sam says:

    Don’t forget about all the GITMO terrorists that Obama gleefully set free to roam about the world.
    And Beau Bergdahl.
    And Bradley (now Chelsea) Manning, who is now being worshipped and adored by the fashion industry and Vogue magazine, in particular.
    All of these, PLUS the thousands of incarcerated felons that were pardoned by Obama. Drug dealers who have caused the death of untold numbers of people. They are back on the streets.
    And all of illegal aliens who have committed atrocious crimes against Americans while Obama welcomed them.

    The media, in constant defense of Obama, sat like the
    3 monkeys—-one with his hands covering his eyes:see no evil; one with his hands over his ears: hear no evil, and one with his hands over his mouth: speak no evil.

    And remember that when the Cat 5 tornado reduced the city of Joplin, Missouri to absolute toothpicks? No real response from Obama, other than ‘FEMA is on the way’.
    Why? Well, it might have something to do with the fact that most of the people who lost everything were the same people that he despises the most. Americans, and mostly white folks.

    McCain is joining Flake in railing about the pardon.
    Just let it go, Johnny. Sheriff Joe is pardoned and there’s not a dam thing that you can do about it.

    It is acknowledged, in the medical world, that persons diagnosed with cancer who are undergoing chemo and/or radiation definitely have an easier time of it when they have a positive outlook on life.

    Positive Outlook: Try it, you’ll like it.

    Please pray for the citizens and emergency personnel who are the path of the hurricane.
    (And watch New Orleans in the coming days. Two weeks ago, their storm pumps were not operational. But they did manage to allow city workers to remove monuments and statues around the area.)

    Over the years we have grown to despise the liberal bent of the Arizona Republic, but subscribe out of longstanding routine, the grocery ads which my wife likes and her desire to do the crossword puzzles. After reading this morning’s editorial “A Monument to Oppression,” topped with a large photo of Sheriff Joe Arpaio tipping his MAGA cap, we made a joint decision to cancel our subscription first thing Monday morning. We’ll call Phil Boas (602) 444-8292 and tell him why, since the subscription line is automated as we have found out when we go on vacation and request a temporary hold. Now we want a permanent one and since I read here that Boas is Joe Arpaio’s son-in-law, he’s the one who needs to get our message LOUD and CLEAR!!!! We hope those of you who have stayed on through inertia as we did, will join us. The bottom line is what this newspaper understands. It reported on a mass exodus after endorsing Hillary Clinton for president. We should have left then.

    • State Delegate says:

      PS I’m going to buy my wife crossword puzzle magazines. Much cheaper and less stress. I found the grocery ads online. Each store has them. The newspaper is nothing more than a relic that insults its readers with its last gasps of bile laced breath.

  5. Saguaro Sam says:

    Being reported on

    Trump backing off his support of Kelli Ward.
    And look who’s behind it.
    The AZGOP

    With Steve Bannon and now Dr. Sebastian Gorka gone from Trump’s WH, the President is now surrounded by globalists.

    Bannon and Gorka back onboard at breitbart

    If you haven’t seen Dr. Gorka’s resignation letter, it’s worth reading.
    And paints a grim picture.

    • Kathy says:

      Sam, Ed Morrissey is a Huge Flake supporter. Read past comments from him over the years. An FYI.

  6. Fountain Hills Voter says:

     Both Gov. Doug Ducey and US Rep. Andy Biggs said they supported President Trump’s pardon of Sheriff Joe. Ducey is quoted as saying that that Joe Arpaio “deserves credit for helping to reduce crime in Maricopa County over his long career in law enforcement and public office.”

    This is Congressman Biggs’ statement:

    The citizens of Arizona’s 5th District are fortunate to have this good man representing them.
    My so-called “representative’ (who doesn’t represent me or other conservatives I know on Sheriff Joe’s pardon) has been silent on the topic, which I will not forget when he asks for my vote and donations.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      Good to hear that about Gov. Ducey and Andy Biggs. Trent Franks said before the pardon that he hoped it would happen.
