The specter of Joe Arpaio looms large at MCSO

January 5, 2017

Is there actually a “new sheriff” in town?

Many residents of Maricopa County were disappointed by the election night news that Sheriff Joe Arpaio lost his seventh reelection bid.  The popular career law enforcement official had served the people of Maricopa County ably for an unprecedented 6 4-year terms. But it was Arpaio’s commitment to actually enforcing the law that made him the punching bag for the daily newspaper, which never saw an illegal alien it didn’t prefer to Arizona citizens.

Checking out the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) website we got a much-needed chuckle.  The staff of Paul Penzone — the incoming sheriff who received funding from radical globalist, multi-billionaire and open borders proponent George Soros* — has failed in its attempt to do a thorough cleansing of its Home Page.

The first photo is of the Sheriff’s Office building. Second is a “Mission Statement,” and a list of “Values and Expectations From Ourselves and Our Employees” Our favorite comes up next with the depiction of two deputies standing before metal paneled doors, with the inscription instructing “Pull forward to yellow line to activate door.” Emblazoned across the door in bold, all caps, yellow letters are the words SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO —- making it all too obvious Team Penzone isn’t ready for prime time.

Politico reported on George Soros’ behind the scenes efforts to single handedly overhaul the U.S. justice system, including involvement in the elections of sheriffs and district or county attorneys with his infusions of $ millions.

Then remind yourself that this is the man who brought us Paul Penzone.


Carjacker tries to hit officer gets care, cop gets admin leave

December 20, 2016

True to form, the local newspaper omits an important detail in describing Reggi Martinez, the 24-year-old identified by Scottsdale police as the carjacker who, after forcing the owner from his car, attempted to run over a police officer.

According to the news report, which includes Martinez’ photo, this lowlife also “led officers on a chase through the city and, at one point, triggered a crash.” He collided with two vehicles in an intersection. 

The criminal received free medical care at a local hospital and a bed and nourishment after being booked in jail.

The news account says the name of the officer who shot at the stolen car — which was aimed at a second officer — has not been released, although the officer has been placed on administrative leave. The officer should be acclaimed as a hero.

What is the need for this abundance of caution resulting in a penalty for the police officer who was trying to keep his fellow officer from being seriously injured or killed?

And Martinez? What the newspaper report omits is his status.  Is he an American citizen, an illegal or one of those unverifiable “dreamers” who give the rest of us nightmares?

Sheriff Joe Arpaio‘s bombshell final press conference 4:00 pm today & UPDATE

December 15, 2016

Culmination of Maricopa County Cold Case Posse’s Investigation into Obama’s fraudulent documents

WND’s Bob Unruh reports that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is not leaving office with unfinished business.  An Army veteran, Arpaio is a dedicated career lawman who began working as a Washington D.C., and Las Vegas, NV police officer. His federal credentials are anything but mundane. As a narcotics agent, he established an impressive record infiltrating drug organizations from Turkey to the Middle East to Mexico, Central, and South America and cities throughout the U.S. His expertise and successes led him to top management positions around the world with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. He concluded his extraordinary federal career as head of the DEA for Arizona before being elected to an unprecedented 6-four year terms as sheriff.

With this professional résumé and documents to substantiate his allegations, he is holding news conference today to release 3 years of analysis of matters relating to the veracity of documents previously released by Barack Obama.

The passage of time doesn’t lessen the gravity of the charges regarding Obama’s origins. Merely looking into such allegations has been responsible for the creation of a new disparaging word from the left  — Birther — for those who dare question the legitimacy of his clams. “Conspiracy theorist” is anther censure hurled with impunity. Former Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie sealed the records when requests first began gaining momentum. He was later ousted by the voters in a stunning upset, despite Barack Obama campaigning for him.

In the WND report complete with the questionable documents, Unruh writes, “Some immediately pointed out alleged anomalies, questioning its (Obama’s birth certificate) validity, while others argued it also could prove his ineligibility because his father was not a citizen. Some of the lawsuits argued Obama was a dual citizen at birth through his father, contending the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born citizens.”

The unresolved question based in the facts of the investigation conducted by Chief Investigator Mike Zullo, is whether Barack Hussein Obama was eligible to spend a day in the White House — let alone eight years. Sheriff Arpaio and Commander Mike Zullo will make their presentation at the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Training Center.  Watch the Live Stream which will initially be posted on the MCSO Facebook page this afternoon —-Thursday, Dec. 15, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. Arizona Time ./ 6:00 p.m. ET.

Judge vindicates Sheriff Arpaio’s workplace raids, upholds law

November 28, 2016

The powerful impact of the vindication of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was buried amid the flurry surrounding the Thanksgiving holiday, as football, recipes for turkey stuffing, and which newly released movie is least dreadful took center stage. But make no mistake.  This. Is. Big.

In his recent ruling U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell said the laws used to back Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s workplace raids will remain on the books, capping off a two-year lawsuit filed by  leftwing Hispanic advocacy groups that claimed Arizona’s identity-theft statutes targeted illegal alien workers.

Judge Campbell appears to have reversed his Jan. 5. 2015 issuance of a  preliminary injunction prohibiting Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery from enforcing state law that make it a felony for illegal aliens to use stolen identities to obtain work. This is Arizona’s Proposition 200, passed overwhelmingly — 55.6 to 44.4 — by Arizona voters in 2004, and which became law.

In the newspaper account, the illegals are repeatedly referred to as “immigrants” as though they arrived in the U.S. via the legal route to become American citizens. Judge Campbell, however, correctly identified them as “unauthorized aliens.”

“The laws were passed in part for their effect on immigration by unauthorized aliens,” Judge Campbell wrote, “but the legislature was also addressing a pressing criminal problem that adversely affected Arizona residents.”

This good news comes too late for Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who lost his bid for reelection to Paul Penzone, a George Soros backed, spousal abusing Democrat. Penzone received $millions from the multi-billionaire globalist who disdains sovereign national borders and is focused on replacing elected law enforcement professionals across the United States. Sheriff Arpaio has been elected to an unprecedented six 4-year terms.

“I have taken a lot of criticism for going into the businesses, arresting workers that are here illegally,” Arpaio was quoted as saying. “I said from the beginning my main objective was to enforce the ID laws, so I’m very happy that the judge ruled in our favor.”

We recommend you read this News Release, titled “U.S. District Court Rules in Favor of MCAO in Prosecutions Involving Identity Theft Laws,” issued by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.


AZ Republic choking on its commitment to liberalism

November 26, 2016

Fishy_Arizona_Republic

There comes a point when it could be considered heartless not to have a modicum of pity for the Hillary-endorsing, open borders promoting Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic newspaper) despite having brought its calamity  on itself. The already dwindling subscriptions dipped even lower when irate subscribers cancelled after the endorsement of the scandal-plagued Hillary.

Even with the market rallying after Donald Trump’s victory, there was nothing to rave about with parent company Gannett’s stock closing price Friday standing at $9.79. At this time last year it was steady at 17.75. Check out the historical chart on the right side of the link to see the calamitous fall coinciding with the election. In 1998 the Central Newspapers, Inc. shares (then not flying under Gannett, Inc.) were trading north of $70.00 a share.

When the Hillary Clinton endorsement was made, it was heralded as “bold move for the conservative newspaper.” Literate Arizonans know all too well the newspaper is anything but “conservative” since the death of publishers Eugene and Nina Pulliam.  Its remaining senior employees are solid lefties who march in lockstep to the radical George Soros drumbeat. The newspaper endorsed all of the recipients of his largesse, from John McCain and Hillary Clinton to Paul Penzone the incoming Maricopa County Sheriff — linked by their open border policySoros also funded the opponent to Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, who was able to thwart the assault from the left. The globalist multi-billionaire financier has been giving $ millions to oust law enforcement professionals throughout the United States as he attempts to restructure the criminal justice system. This Discover the Networks page provides a guide to the Soros syndicate.

The Phoenix Republic insert often embarrassingly carries the identical articles the increasingly anorexic newspaper runs — and on the same day. While it’s true the demographic for home subscriptions is predominantly senior citizens, they are not all suffering from dementia, and actually notice the repetition, stuck in among the obviously pre-written pages and propped up by Gannett’s mainstay USAToday, the daily distributed free of charge outside hotel room doors. Often referred to as the Repugnant or the Repulsive, a more accurate name for the pathetic excuse for a local newspaper would be The Daily Regurgitation. There have been days when the news content is fewer than 25 pages, tucked in among ads for hearing aids and retirement facilities. In a futile attempt to lure younger readers, it’s focus is now on entertainment and restaurants and the Cronkite student reporters, sorely in need of mentoring cover serious events as if they were writing a whodunit novel.

Whichever the preferred name, the daily fishwrap is shrinking. An example of the skillful writing keeping readers engaged is this recent Page One headline: “Asking schools to protect ‘dreamers.’”  No word of who was asking. The first paragraph reveals the enthusiastic benefactors wanting to provide illegal alien competition for American citizen students to access higher education are professors, faculty and staff at Arizona’s state universities and community colleges. What a surprise.

The Arizona Republic would rather die insulting its few remaining readers than alter it’s left-wing stance.


Obama’s DOJ continues implementing absurdities

November 25, 2016

Putting the (non-citizen) chickens in charge of guarding the (American) henhouse

It seems like an endless wait, but soon enough the Obama administration will be a thing of the past. We might want to forget that throughout the past eight years Barack Obama never gave up on fulfilling his campaign threat to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” *

Yet not remembering what this country has been through sets up a repetition of the same. Corruption has been a hallmark of the Obama years.

We must never forget the nadir into which we have been plunged and the preposterous policies implemented — such as this:

Fox News reports that the Denver Sheriff’s Department was fined $10,000 for hiring only U.S. citizens. We couldn’t make this stuff up.

The Department of Justice released this press release titled “Justice Department Settles Immigration-Related Discrimination Claim Against the Denver Sheriff Department.

From the Fox report:

The Denver Sheriff’s Department set out to hire scores of deputies last year to lessen the burden on its staff and cut millions in overtime.

It advertised for prospects, and included U.S. citizenship as a requirement. By this past spring, it had hired 200 deputies.

The Justice Department did not congratulate the agency ––  instead, it slapped Colorado’s largest sheriff’s department with a $10,000 fine and a host of steps it must take to address what was described as discriminatory hiring.

In a summary of the settlement on its website, the Justice Department said that in insisting on citizenship, the Denver Sheriff’s Department violated an anti-discrimination provision in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) that forbids employers from hiring only U.S. citizens except in cases where it is mandated “by law, regulation, executive order or government contract.”

* “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

— Barack Obama, October 30, 2008

 “We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”

— Michelle Obama, May 14, 2008

 


Dem mayors defiantly protect sanctuary cities

November 16, 2016

Democrat mayors are primed to challenge Republican President-elect Donald Trump over sanctuary cities, which provide safe havens for illegal foreign nationals. As an example, Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel — a onetime chief-of-staff to Barack Obama —–  states his unequivocal support for illegal aliens, (25-second video) “clearly” preferring them to providing safety to the legal citizens of Chicago. Mayor Emanuel, who presides over a city with body bag statistics rivaling many war zones, declares, “ Let’s be clear about what Chicago is. It always will be a sanctuary city. You are safe in Chicago. You are secure in Chicago. You are supported in Chicago.”

Center for Immigration Studies provides a fact-filled reportSanctuary Cities Continue to Obstruct Enforcement, Threaten Public Safety by Jessica Vaughan. Brazenly reaffirming their sanctuary city status immediately after the Nov. 8 election are the mayors of Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle.  They are part of a network of cities, counties, and states that have laws, ordinances, regulations, resolutions, policies, or other practices that obstruct immigration enforcement and shield criminals from ICE. Arizona has at least five such cities. Scroll down link for the list.

In 2009, then Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon defended the city’s sanctuary city policy. Current Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, a liberal and connected Democrat, has pushed for ID cards for illegals, but stays clear of addressing the city’s policy of providing sanctuary.  Stanton intends to run for Secretary of State, which has often been the direct route to the governor’s 9th floor office.

Phoenix citizens trying to directly contact Stanton’s office find it requires sending an email with a warning that the contents are subject to disclosure under the Public Records Law.

Donald Trump made the illegal invasion a focal point of his presidential campaign — an issue that accounted in large part for his victory.

After being elected  to an unprecedented six four-year terms, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio fell victim to the millions in cash infusions open borders, multi-billionaire George Soros generously gave to Democrat candidate Paul Penzone. Arpaio was also battered incessantly by the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) which is zealously pro-amnesty for illegals aliens. In addition to being vilified by the left and the federal courts for enforcing the law — which is what made him so popular with the citizens of Maricopa County.

Along the way, the career lawman gained national recognition and is often interviewed on network and cable television news. He’s traveled with Republican President-elect Donald Trump and introduced him at rallies in Arizona and across the country.  Joe Arpaio and Donald Trump have both put the massive problem of the illegal invasion front and center. As president, Trump should withhold federal funding to any jurisdiction that refuses to cooperate with ICE or other law enforcement agencies.
