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.


McCain: “I’ve seen no evidence of illegal voting”

January 30, 2017

McCain opts for not paying attention to facts

Speaking with CNN‘s Anderson Cooper, John McCain unequivocally asserts, “I obviously have seen no evidence of illegal voting. My focus has been on national security, getting Gen. Mattis in as secretary of defense … doing those issues.”

Then the man who is still smarting from his own presidential thrashing by Barack Obama, who withdrew his momentary support from Republican nominee Donald Trump and now pummels him at every opportunity, snidely added that he’s “learned to disregard at least some of the President’s news-making remarks and focus on the business of governing.”

Since McCain — neither the president nor a governor — has made a name for himself insulting sincere citizens who appear before the Senate Armed Services Committee he chairs, and throughout his career has partnered with liberals and Republicrats to relentlessly promotes amnesty for illegal aliens, what business of governing could he possibly be referring to?

The Washington Times reports that Hillary Clinton garnered more than 800,000 votes from non-citizens on Nov. 8, an approximation short of President Trump’s higher estimate of illegal voters, though definitely supportive of his charges of fraud.

Octogenarian McCain, who “obviously” has seen no evidence of voter fraud, must have missed this shocking three-part report documenting evidence of voter fraud on DiscoverTheNetworks.org, A Guide to the Political Left:

PART 1 includes confirmation of voter fraud Oct. 22, 2010 as reported by the Yuma Sun newspaper. Also listed is the Aug. 25, 2014 Phoenix incident of ballot harvesting as reported by A. J. LaFaro, then-Chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee and covered by the Arizona Daily Independent.

Part 2 and Part 3 are also filled with irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in state after state.

The Heritage Foundation provides a sampling of election fraud cases (462) and convictions (742) from across the country — including Arizona.

How are convictions on voter fraud obtained if there is no substantiating evidence to convince the jury, Mr. McCain? They “obviously” require a higher threshold than you do.


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.


US Judge halts transgender, abortion related Obamacare provisions

January 2, 2017

Reason reigns in Texas

It might have skipped notice over a holiday weekend, but a federal judge in Texas on Saturday issued a court order barring enforcement of an Obama administration policy seeking to extend protections under Obamacare (ACA) to “transgender health and abortion-related services.”

The decision sides with Texas, seven other states and three Christian-affiliated healthcare groups challenging a rule that, according to  U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor, defines sex bias to include “discrimination on the basis of gender identity and termination of pregnancy.”

In granting an injunction one day before the new policy was to take effect, Judge O’Connor, a George W. Bush appointee, held that it violates the Administrative Procedure Act, a federal law governing rule-making practices.

As explained in O’Connor’s 46-page opinion,* the plaintiffs argued that the new regulation would “require them to perform and provide insurance coverage for gender transitions and abortions, regardless of their contrary religious beliefs or medical judgment.”

In his opinion, Judge O’Connor wrote the regulations would likely violate the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and “places substantial pressure on Plaintiffs to perform and cover transition and abortion procedures.”

The rule in dispute on Saturday was put in place by the Obama administration’s U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Department Secretary Sylvia Burwell, whose intent was to implement those provisions.

According to the court opinion, gender identity was defined under that rule as “an individual’s internal sense of gender, which may be male, female, neither, or a combination of male and female, and which may be different from an individual’s sex assigned at birth.”

Judge O’Connor issued this court order on August 21, 2016  blocking a separate Obama administration policy that would have required public schools, over the objections of 13 states, to allow transgender students to use restrooms of their choice. Plaintiffs included Heber-Overgaard Unified School District in Arizona.
