Sheriff Joe remains focus of ethically challenged newspaper

March 13, 2017

Arizona’s statewide newspaper is known by various names. For its pro-amnesty/open borders stance it is sometimes referred to as the Periódico de la República de Arizona. Many call it the Arizona Repugnant or Repulsive. More recently, as the failing newspaper attempts to fill its smaller and devoid of news pages it repeats the  same articles — sometimes pages apart in the same edition of the newspaper — leading to the name the Daily Regurgitation.

But whatever name is most fitting on any particular day, know this: The newspaper was committed to taking down popular Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio who had been reelected to an unprecedented six 4-year terms

The chosen replacement was Democrat Paul Penzone, with zero background in the sheriff’s office. His connections are far more nefarious. His campaign was funded to the tune of $2 million by radical leftwing globalist George Soros, who disdains sovereign national borders and is working  tooverhaul the U.S. Justice Systemas reported by Politico. What will be the  quid pro quo for his generosity?

Now in one of the largest requests submitted to the budget office, Penzone wants an extra $4.1 million to buy laptops, radios, computer server storage and 300 Tasers — all “vital to the safety of the public and deputies.”  That would be a drop in the bucket to multi-billionaire Soros. Penzone ought to hit him up for the funding.

Sunday’s edition of the Periódico de la República de Arizona lavishes praise on Penzone with a two page article titled, A New Sheriff In Town, by ASU Cronkite reporter Jerod MacDonald-Evoy, who still puts his high school on his résumé. He focuses on the new sheriff’s newly forged relationship with the town of Guadalupe, where Arpaio conducted a workplace enforcement raid of illegals. Penzone is noted for referring to illegal aliens as “guests.”

But we’ve saved the best for last. Dominic Verstegen describes himself as a 40-year-old dad living in Phoenix and documenting his life in occasional columns for the local newspaper. A quick Google search identifies him as a local lawyer.  Throwing in gratuitous, non sequitur slams against Sheriff Arpaio is his hallmark.

Boasting about “the time I was on the best show on TV,” which he identifies as the local PBS’ Check Please! where a panel critique local restaurants, he describes getting flustered by the studio cameras with these words,” I was as awkward as Sheriff Joe at a quinceanera.”

Seriously.

Another column is on navigating Valley roads which the former Midwesterner describes as “quirky.” Displaying his coolness, he even managed to work the word transgendered into his description of wacky freeway signs. When he gets to complaining about major roads changing names, he inanely opines, “It seems like a deliberate attempt to mess with Valley residents. Like that time when Joe Arpaio was our sheriff for 24 years.”

Imagine this Johnny-One-Note mounting a defense in a criminal trial: “Your honor and members of the jury, I acknowledge that my client engaged in multiple bad acts, but they weren’t his fault.  He lived in Maricopa County where Joe Arpaio was the sheriff.”


Ken Bennett: No longer able to win elections, seeks appointment

March 7, 2017

Ken Bennett is finished running for political office. With a failed 2014 bid for governor followed by a 2016 congressional loss under his belt, the former secretary of state and state senator — not up for anymore campaigns — now wants to be appointed.

The lethargic guitar-strumming former Prescott resident has bounced around the state in recent years as he’s sought various political posts. The closest he’s come has been as chairman of Republican Legislative District 24 in Phoenix — which he resigned in short order.

In the interim he’s worked as a lobbyist for the state court system followed by a stint with SDB Contracting Services — but it’s the now out-of-reach political arena he still craves.

So how best to achieve his goal?  Bennett deserves an “A” for inventiveness.  He’s been busying himself calling members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, promoting himself as the answer to an unasked question.

In the unlikely event the supervisors separate the Maricopa County Elections Department from the Recorder’s Office he wants them to know he’d be interested in being appointed elections director.

Bennett is quoted as saying, “I would want to be the director of that (Elections) department and have the independence and report directly to the Board of Supervisors.”

 This all became an issue when longtime Recorder Helen Purcell, a Republican who has held the office nearly 30 years, lost the election in November..

In what turned out to be a monumental miscalculation, fewer polling places were made available for the March presidential preference election.  Purcell said low turnout in previous elections played a part in the decision to reduce polling sites. Donald Trump’s arrival on the political scene dramatically changed that dynamic. Voters who stood in line for several hours waiting to cast their ballots during that  election vented their fury in the November election. Purcell squeaked through the Primary by less than 1 percentage point, but was replaced in the General by political newcomer, Adrian Fontes, a Democrat.


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.


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.


Need proof that the feds have things bassackwards?

Obvious political double standards

When it comes to scandal-plagued and utterly dishonest Hillary Clinton, the U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch clandestinely meets on the tarmac of Sky Harbor airport for a tête-à-tête with Hill’s husband Bill aboard a private jet — ostensibly to discuss grandchildren.

And, though  FBI Director James Comey found compelling evidence of concerning issues in Hillary Clinton’s use of multiple private email servers, he concluded that he would not recommend charges against her, though he conceded Clinton and her aides were “extremely careless” in handling classified information. Comey refused to recommend an indictment against Hillary Clinton, despite “evidence” she violated laws pertaining to the handling of classified information, jeopardizing U.S. national security. These breaches occurred during her term as Secretary of State. “There is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position  should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that information,” Comey acknowledged.

Additionally, Comey noted that other individuals in a similar situation would not necessarily be let off the hook with no charges, and would probably face penalties. “But that’s not what we’re deciding now,” he glibly fed us, the sheeple. “We are expressing to Justice our view that no charges be made in this case.”

“Justice,” of course, is U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch of the tarmac meeting fame.  Addressing the people of the United States, the FBI director actually said that “no outside influence of any kind was brought to bear” on the investigation. He neglected to mention the inappropriate meeting between former president Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch aboard a private jet.

Hillary Clinton is free to run for the U.S. Presidency, guaranteeing Obama’s third term.

Here in Arizona, we have what clearly appears to be a personal vendetta carried out by a federal judge timed to coincide with the General Election in which popular Sheriff Joe Arpaio is on the ballot running for a seventh term. He was formally charged Tuesday with criminal contempt of court for ignoring U.S. District Judge Murray Snow’s order in a three-year old racial-profiling case. Arpaio acknowledged violating Snow’s order but insists the breach wasn’t intentional

Arpaio’s challenger in the race is once again  rough ‘er up Democrat Paul Penzone, funded by multi-billionaire Socialist George Soros, who is contemptuous of national borders. Soros also funds Hillary Clinton and John McCain.

If convicted, Sheriff Arpaio could face up to six months in jail. A misdemeanor conviction would not bar Arpaio from serving as sheriff.
