Arpaio denied jury trial: Judge to decide contempt case

March 3, 2017

Constitutional right to being tried before a jury of one’s peers denied former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio

In a ruling Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton rejected arguments that a jury trial was needed to avoid the appearance of bias by Judge G. Murray Snow who recommended the criminal charge against the former sheriff.

Arpaio is charged with criminal contempt for defying a 2011 court order in a case stemming from his workplace patrols of illegals. Arpaio pleaded not guilty to the charge. He acknowledged violating the order but insisted the breech wasn’t intentional.

His trial is set for April 25. Judge Bolton, a registered Independent, was nominated to a lifetime appointment on the federal bench by Democrat Pres. Bill Clinton, based on a recommendation from then-U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, a Republican with John McCain’s concurrence. She was confirmed by a voice vote.

If convicted, Joe Arpaio, who will be 85 on Flag Day, June 14, could face up to six months in jail. His wife Ava battles a serious illness, but age and infirmities take a back seat to politics as usual. Though both of his parents were legal Italian immigrants, he was characterized in the media as being anti-immigrant for doing the job the citizens of Maricopa County reelected him to an unprecedented six four-year terms to do.

Mel McDonald, Arpaio’s lawyer, is the former U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona. Although McDonald argued that an elected official’s actions should be decided by an impartial jury of his peers, he said his client won’t appeal this latest decision. “It’s not surprising,” McDonald is quoted as saying, noting that Bolton had previously said she was leaning toward deciding the case herself. Bolton declared there is no inherent right to jury trials in cases in which potential jail sentences are limited to six months or less.

This August 2016 posprovides background on the motivation of U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow, whose temper and apparent vendetta against Arpaio were frequently on display as he initially put this unsavory legal scheme into action


Bill Montgomery’s change of heart on animal cruelty

March 2, 2017

The Editorial Board of the daily newspaper has opined in unison on House Bill 2242, which seeks to elevate the punishment for “cruel mistreatment” of a domestic animal to a type of felony that can’t be reduced to a misdemeanor.

Examples of such heinous abuse are detailed in the editorial. Few would disagree with the intent of such legislation.

What is odd, however, is that the bill is sponsored by a lone state Representative at the specific request of Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery.

This is the same Bill Montgomery who punted on the deaths of 23 dogs who died agonizing deaths, suffocating in the small, steamy utility room in which they were crammed together without food, water or cool air in the scorching heat of June 21, 2014. The family pets were boarded at Green Acre kennel and left in the care of incompetents Austin Flake, son of U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake, and Austin’s then-wife Logan. The kennel was owned by Logan’s mother and step-father, who were vacationing out-of-state.

After a lengthy and intense investigation —- even consulting with out-of-state experts, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio recommended criminal prosecution on 23 felony animal neglect charges against Todd and MaLeisa Hughes and their daughter and son-n-law Logan and Austin Flake.

 When the Flake’s discovered the dead and dying dogs, they did not call a veterinarian. Instead they hosed them down in an effort to cool them and  then callously stacked the dead carcasses like cordwood in a storage shed on the property. Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a champion of animals, had an Animal Crimes Investigations Unit as part of his office for over a decade. He forwarded  charges of animal neglect and cruelty to Montgomery, recommending numerous felony charges in connection with the horrific abuse.

As we wrote in this September 2014 postBill Montgomery: Between a Flake and a hard place,” bringing charges against Sen. Jeff Flake’s son, daughter-in-law and her parents, did not fit into Montgomery’s long-range career goals.

Montgomery went mute after his insulting press conference where he noted that the dead dogs “weren’t 23 children,” after all — enraging the pet owners and the community at large.

A Maricopa County Grand Jury indicted both couples. And whaddya know?  Montgomery dropped all felony charges against Austin and Logan, now divorced. That left them free to sue Maricopa County taxpayers and Sheriff Joe Arpaio, seeking $8 million to resurrect their formerly pristine reputations, claiming they were targeted by the Sheriff’s office and their characters were ruined by the investigation.

As onetime shirttail relatives of Sen. Jeff Flake, Todd and MaLeisa Hughes were more expendable. They spent 60 days in jail and will serve six years probation.

And HB2242? It appears to be headed to the bill graveyard after dairy, farm and cattle grower lobbyists have stepped up to oppose it. On Legislative site, click “RTS Current Bill Positions,” and plug in HB2242.


Sheriff Penzone puts ICE detainer for illegals on ice

February 18, 2017

Selling out to Soros equates to selling out the safety of Maricopa County citizens

If liberal Paul Penzone — shoehorned into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office via millions in cash infusions from billionaire Socialist George Soros — is so proud of his latest policy regarding illegal aliens, where is his press release heralding it?

In an Orwellian language manipulation, Penzone recently referred to these unlawful invaders as “guests.”

The most recent gambit of the Democrat Sheriff is that Maricopa County jails will no longer detain illegals identified by federal authorities for the U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“Individuals no longer will be detained beyond the time that they otherwise should be released for an offense.” Paul Penzone was quoted as saying. “We are following our legal obligation, to process that individual for release.”

Note the careful use of language. The word “individual” is used twice in two sentences. After blowback he’s veering away from referring to illegal aliens as “guests.”

Penzone declared the new policy will be effective immediately. The previous order was known as an ICE detainer.

During the 2016 election cycle Politico exposed George Soros’ efforts to overhaul the U.S. justice system by funding Democrat prosecutor and law enforcement candidates who evidenced a leftward lurch. It was an integral part of a concerted effort to reshape the American justice system. Soros was successful in several races, even using his $billions to oust Republican incumbents.  Paul Penzone stands as an example.

Penzone and unknown Democrat lawyer Diego Rodriguez, another Soros backed candidate, who mounted an unsuccessful challenge to Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, had a lot in common: $oros’s money.

Oddly, Montgomery, a Republican recently sworn in to a third term, appears all too happy to assist Democrat Sheriff Penzone in his mission to release the detainees, making our streets less safe.

Globalist Soros’ entry into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s race was by no means a stand alone aberration. His Safety and Justice national PAC is a part of an intricate syndicate with long tentacles reaching into law enforcement races in various states, including Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Texas. He is even funding the expansion of Europe’s “refugee” crisis, declaring “national borders are the obstacle.”

YourNewsWire posted a compelling report titled, “Megalomaniac George Soros is at war with Western Democracy.” It’s a rainy Saturday. Take time to read it. There will be other elections and though Soros is 86 years old, his adult children are poised to take the reins of their father’s evil empire.


Jeff Sessions confirmed as USAG: Why lone Dem voted aye

February 9, 2017

The U. S. Senate on Wednesday confirmed President Trump’s U.S. Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions. His stellar legal career will be an asset to the Trump administration and the American people.

The vote was 52 – 47. (view here) with a single Democrat — West Virginia’s Joe Manchin —  deviating from the party line. The Senate’s two Independents voted with the Democrats. Sessions voted “present.”

West Virginia gave Donald Trump a landslide victory of 68.65% to Hillary Clinton’s meager showing of 26.46%.

Democrat Manchin is a longtime politician, having been elected to the state House and Senate, as Secretary of State and Governor, before being elected U. S. Senator in Nov. 2010.  He’s learned a few things along the way.  First and foremost is his coal producing state was thrown under the bus by his party’s presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as she promised toput a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” (video)

Watch as a laid off coal miner confronts Hillary (video) and she lies to his face about her actual agenda. 

In 2008, presidential candidate Obama previously vowed to bankrupt the coal industry (video) as he spoke with the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Manchin will be running for reelection in 2018. That fact is reflected in his vote.

No wonder the leading coal producing state of West Virginia has had its fill of Democrats and Sen. Joe Manchin treads carefully. Miners who toil underground,  risking their lives to provide energy, their friends and family vote.


McCain and Flake deserve Senate phony’s award

February 2, 2017

AZ U.S. Senators hypocritically praise Pres. Trump’s SCOTUS pick, though if they got their way during election, we’d be faced with a permanently leftist skewed high court

Who can forget sanctimonious hypocrite John McCain taking to his high horse and withdrawing his brief support from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump? McCain, who previously referred to Hillary as a rock starhe could support, also declared he and his wife Cindy would not vote for Trump. Vacuous daughter Meghan followed suit.

Jeff Flake, Obama’s basketball teammate and traveling companion, not only refused to get on board with our nominee, but rogue Flake went before any MSM camera placed in front of him to undermine Donald Trump, declaring, “I don’t expect that I will be able to support him (Trump) in November….I just don’t see how I can.”

He didn’t.

Now the duplicitous duo of amnesty supporters is heaping praise on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch.

If it had been up to either of these Hillary cohorts, we’d be looking at liberal nominees in the mode of former ACLU chief counsel, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, admittedly no fan of the U.S. Constitution, appointed by Bill Clinton, as was Stephen Breyer.

Leftists Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, a White House policy adviser to Bill Clinton and later Obama’s Solicitor General — were both Obama appointees.

As McCain and Flake enthuse over Judge Neil Gorsuch, remember what we would have had if either of these Republican pretenders got their way and Donald Trump, who they sabotaged every step of the way, had not been elected President.

The disgraceful Arizona senators deserve the award of shame for their blatant hypocrisy.

Here are a few of the U.S. Supreme Court Justices and the AZ senators votes:

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Roll Call vote. McCain voted aye in tandem with Democrat AZ Sen. Dennis DiConcini on confirming this radical appointee.

Stephen Breyer:  Roll Call vote. Again, McCain and DiConcini both voted aye for the Democrat.

Sonia Sotomayor: Roll Call vote.  In an out of character move, McCain and Kyl both voted nay on confirmation of Democrat although she was the first Hispanic woman appointed to the high court.

Elena Kagan: Roll Call vote McCain and Kyl each voted nay on confirmation. Apparently her partisan political background was too much for them to even split their votes.

David Souter (ret.): Roll Call vote. Once again, McCain voted aye with Democrat AZ Sen. Dennis DiConcini. Souter, a nominal Republican appointed by George H. W. Bush, turned further left as a justice. He retired not long after Obama was elected, calculatingly allowing him to appoint Democrat Sotomayor as his successor.


Fed. Judge Neil Gorsuch named to replace Scalia

February 1, 2017

Fulfilling yet another campaign promise for his first 100 days in office, Pres. Donald Trump has nominated federal judge Neil Gorsuch, 49, to replace Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. Justice Scalia unexpectedly passed away last February.

Gorsuch was nominated to the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit by Pres. George W. Bush on May 10, 2006 and was confirmed by a unanimous voice vote. 

SCOTUS blog, in an earlier profile of Judge Gorsuch notes “his background is filled with sterling legal and academic credentials.”

Now, however, in a purely partisan effort, the same senate Democrats who joined in giving Judge Gorsuch unanimous approval to the federal appellate bench are posed to attempt to scuttle his Supreme Court nomination.

It’s worthy of note, that while in the U.S. Senate Barack Obama voted against Bush Supreme Court appointees John Roberts and Samuel Alito, both of whom were confirmed.
