Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio exhibits more integrity than foes

June 24, 2017

In anticipation of his upcoming trial, the failing Arizona Republic is thrusting a multi-pronged pitchfork in Joe Arpaio’s direction.  Dissipated columnist EJ Montini gloats in an on-line video in which he appears to be unwell. His counterpart, Laurie Roberts leaps onboard with her own spew of negativity. Political cartoonist Steve Benson, who devoted years to churning out contemptuous criticism towards Arpaio has now turned his focus to President Trump, another Republican to despise and attempt to bring down.

This single sentence sums up the newspaper’s bias: “Joe Arpaio — the man, not the lawman — is the defendant in a federal criminal trial scheduled to begin in Phoenix on Monday.”

Arpaio, who fittingly celebrated his 85th birthday which occurs on Flag Day, faces a criminal contempt trial on allegations that he violated a federal judge’s orders to stop enforcing federal immigration law. Joe Arpaio, the son of Italian immigrants, has obviously never been against immigration. Illegal hordes invading our country, using counterfeit or stolen ID to facilitate their lives here are not immigrants.

What you need to remember: Joe Arpaio, an Army veteran and career lawman who rose from a Washington DC police officer to worldwide assignments within the Drug Enforcement Administration, culminating with heading the Arizona DEA office prior to initially running for Sheriff in 1992 — was doing the job the citizens of Maricopa County repeatedly elected him to do.

Democrat Paul Penzone, the Soros supported leftist candidate, who succeeded Arpaio is working to eradicate any semblance of the last 24 years where Sheriff Arpaio was the popular chief law enforcement professional in Maricopa County. The liberal newspaper, which supports open borders and amnesty, led the charge against him. Shamefully the editorial policy is overseen by editor Phil Boas, who is Arpaio’s son-in-law. Boas claims he recuses himself from coverage of Arpaio.

George Soros, a muti-billionaire, is a socialist who ultimately dropped $2 million into Penzone’s campaign as he has been funding liberal candidates across the nation in an attempt to alter the U.S. Justice system. Politico carries the shocking exposé.

Cheers for Handel in GA CD 6: Laughing our Ossoff

June 21, 2017

Call her Congresswoman Handel. 

In the most expensive congressional race in the nation’s history, former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel was victorious over Democrat Jon Ossoff, a  30-year old documentary filmmaker in the state’s 6th Congressional District

The Georgia race was touted as a referendum on President Trump, as Democrats pulled out all stops and money poured into the district from East and West coast influence peddlers. Inexperienced Ossoff wasn’t helped by the fact that he lived outside the district he was running to represent and was unable to vote for himself.

Things are looking very good. Approaching the midterms. The Republican also won the special congressional election in South Carolina.

Pres. Trump: US withdraws from Paris Climate deal

June 1, 2017

“The Paris Accord disadvantages the United States to the exclusive benefit of other countries, leaving American workers, who I love, and taxpayers, to absorb the costs in terms of lost jobs, lower wages, shuttered factories and vastly diminished economic production.” — President Donald Trump, June 1, 2017

Fulfilling his campaign promise “to put American workers first,” President Donald Trump has announced the United States’ exit from the Paris Climate Change pact entered into by his predecessor Barack Obama — who imperially bypassed seeking senate authorization to enter into the deal that hamstrings the U.S. Trump left open the possibility of a renegotiation that’s fair to America.

Declaring “I was elected to represent the citizens in Pittsburgh, not Paris,” President Trump took aim at the costly Climate Change restrictions imposed on American citizens, their jobs and the U.S. economy.

“As of today, the United States will cease all implementation of the nonbinding Paris Accord,” Trump said during a White House Rose Garden announcement. The president noted the agreement disadvantaged the U.S. “to the exclusive benefit of other countries,” leaving American businesses and taxpayers to absorb the cost.

With gratitude…Memorial Day 2017

May 29, 2017

 

Sharing in a longstanding tradition of paying tribute to those who lost their lives fighting for freedom,  more than 5,000 Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts placed American flags on the graves of over 88,000 veterans Saturday morning. The flag placement preceded other commemorative events which took place at the Los Angeles National Cemetery.

The scouts are made aware that their freedom is maintained by the dedication and sacrifices of others. As they approach each grave, the scouts read the name of the veteran aloud, places an American flag in the ground, observes a brief moment of silence….and salutes each fallen patriot.  Within an hour, the entire cemetery is decorated with thousands of American flags. Most importantly, the lesson of gratitude and the knowledge that freedom isn’t free, will stay with these young scouts throughout their lives.

The flags will remain in place until Tuesday, when the scouts will return to retrieve them and place them in storage for use next year.

On this Memorial Day, e invite you to listen to this moving rendition ofTaps played by the U.S. Marine Band.


Trump tells NATO members to pay fair share for defense

May 26, 2017

President boldly addresses alliance members

On his first foreign trip as President, Donald Trump scored high marks with Americans who gave him a stunning victory last November.

His trip included a visit to Saudi Arabia, where he addressed the leaders of Muslim nations telling them they must do more to rout out Islamic extremists from their communities and mosques. In Israel he met with ally Benjamin Netanyahu and visited holy sites. He also used the opportunity to make a pointed reference to the previous administration which meddled in Israel’s election in an attempt to oust President Netanyahu, saying. “America’s security partnership with Israel is stronger than ever. Under my administration, you see the difference.”

The President and First Lady and key members of his administration then met with Pope Francis at the Vatican. Thursday he addressed NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) members, and spoke frankly about their obligations to “contribute their fair share” so the alliance can focus on fighting terrorism and dealing with “the grave concerns” relating to a mass migration crisis.

“The NATO of the future must include a great focus on terrorism and immigration, as well as threats from Russia and our NATO’s eastern and southern borders,” Trump said in a speech at the new $1.2 billion NATO headquarters in Brussels.

He also told members of the NATO alliance they must finally meet their financial obligations. Referring to “chronic underpayments,” Trump said 23 of the 28 member nations are “still not paying what they should be paying for their own defense.”

The United States has borne 22% of the costs associated with defending all of the member nations. In an agreed upon cost sharing formula, at least 2% of each county’s gross domestic product is to be spent on defense. Currently, only five of the 28 member nations carrying their own weight are the United States, the United Kingdom, Greece, Poland, and Estonia. Germany only pays 1.19.percent and Canada a paltry 1%.  Spain spends 0.9%, as does Belgium. Most of the 28 nation alliance prefer to spend on expansive social programs.

“This is not fair to the taxpayers of the United States,” Trump stated.

The president used his NATO speech to reiterate a point he made during his Saudi Arabia visit, when he encouraged Middle Eastern allies to take on a greater role in fighting the Islamic State.

“This call for driving out terrorism is a message I took to a historic gathering of Arab and Muslim leaders across the region, hosted by Saudi Arabia,” Trump said. “The leaders of the Middle East agreed at this unprecedented meeting to stop funding the radical ideology that leads to this horrible terrorism all over the globe.”

Referencing the terrorist attack in Manchester, England earlier this week as an example of the reasons why NATO as an institution must do more to combat Islamic extremism, Trump said, “The recent attack in the United Kingdom demonstrates the depths of the evil we face with terrorism. Innocent little girls and so many others were horribly murdered and badly injured while attending a concert — beautiful lives with such great potential torn from their families forever. It was a barbaric and vicious attack upon our civilization.”
