Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is back in campaign mode. The Republican career law enforcement professional who rose from the ranks of police officer to director of the Arizona office of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, made the Sunday announcement to coincide with the birthday of his wife, Ava.
Taking a well placed jab at Democrat Sheriff Paul Penzone, Arpaio’s primary mission in running for sheriff once more is to “Make Maricopa County safe again.”
Maricopa County voters will long remember that immediately after his election Penzone welcomed illegals, who have invaded our country by the hundreds of thousands, calling them “guests.”
According to this fact-filled press release, “Winning in next year’s election would give former Sheriff Arpaio an unprecedented seventh term in office. Arpaio has never lost a Republican primary for Sheriff and he is the only Republican Sheriff re-elected in the past 100 years in Maricopa County.”
Leftist Penzone won in 2016, thanks to his socialist multi-billionaire benefactor George Soros, who pumped over $3 Million into Penzone’s campaign as he prioritized overhauling the U.S. criminal justice system. Penzone was also the beneficiary of relentless hammering of Sheriff Arpaio by the failing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper — which also endorsed Penzone — previously best known for roughing up his former wife.
While a Phoenix Police Sergeant, Penzone was put on administrative leave after a domestic violence incident that included the issuance of an order of protection against him by his then-estranged wife. Under the order, Penzone was unable to possess firearms — making it difficult to carry out his duties as a police officer. This type of background is rightly a career killer in today’s world, but Penzone was not only given a pass, but won the newspaper’s warm endorsement.
Back in 2011, Human Events listed the “Top 10 Reasons George Soros Is Dangerous,” referring to him as “the single most destructive leftist demagogue in the country.” Soros is a Globalist who abhors national borders.
Another excellent exposé of Penzone’s benefactor Soros can be read in “David Horowitz Explains How George Soros and the ‘Shadow Party’ Rule Over Democrats.”
Republicans welcome Sheriff Arpaio’s entry into the 2020 race. He knows the difference between actual guests and those who have complete disregard for our laws and sovereign border.
