Arizona Legislators Demand Trump Stay Out of Their State, Quash Arpaio Pardon

Arizona says no racists allowed in their state. It’s really a part of Mexico, you see.

AZ Central

Democratic lawmakers, faith leaders and community activists are pushing state and local officials to join them in protesting President Donald Trump’s visit to Phoenix on Tuesday, as well as a possible pardon for Joe Arpaio.

The president told Fox News this week he was “seriously considering” pardoning the former Maricopa County sheriff, a political ally who faces jail time for refusing to follow a court order to halt immigration patrols unlawfully targeting Latinos.

“(Trump) should delay the visit here and respect the people who were affected in Charlottesville last week, especially the family that lost their daughter,” said state Sen. Catherine Miranda, referring to 32-year-old Heather Heyer, killed Saturday after a car crashed into demonstrators protesting a white-supremacy rally in the Virginia city.

“The message I’m getting is that he’s going to continue to condone racism and hatred by coming here and pardoning the most racist sheriff in the nation,” the Phoenix Democrat said.

The senators and other leaders will issue a formal call for support Friday morning at the Phoenix Mexican restaurant El Portal.

Trump already faces heavy criticism for calling left-wing groups just as violent as white supremacists in Charlottesville and for saying there were “bad people” on both sides.

To pardon Arpaio on top of those remarks “would be devastating for our community, because it would send a very strong message that … targeting people based on their race and treating them differently because of their ethnicity are acceptable behaviors,” Sen. Martín Quezada said.

“This should be the end of an ugly chapter in Arizona history,” the Maryvale Democrat said. “To have (Arpaio) finally be held accountable for the harm he caused all these years, and then to have the president to come in and alter that outcome — we can’t stand by and let that happen.”

Petra Falcon, executive director of immigrant-advocacy non-profit Promise Arizona, stressed that leaders will not ask people to protest in-person at Tuesday’s potentially “volatile” rally. But she believes elected officials should publicly support the “cry that this president is not welcome to continue to drive a message of hate.”

Sheriff Joe Arpaio: “Where is Trump?”

What I like about this piece is not so much that Sheriff Joe is questioning Trump’s loyalty to him, which is legit, but the description of how a liberal woman judge has railroaded Joe into spending huge sums of money defending himself in court, and still finding him guilty.

As long as there are Obama judges on the bench there will be no rule of law. This case proves it. If the New World Order doesn’t have the ability to prosecute legitimately a friend to the rule of law like Sheriff Joe, then it will turn to crooked judges to get the job done.

Trump should have pardoned Joe on Day 1 of his presidency.

Infowars

WASHINGTON, D.C. – After being convicted of criminal misdemeanor contempt, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has come out swinging, arguing the judge was biased and asking why President Trump is abandoning him, considering Arpaio was an early campaign supporter whose conviction reflects the determination to enforce immigration laws the Trump Justice Department is now exhibiting.

“Where is President Trump on this case?” Arpaio asked Infowars.com in an exclusive interview. “This is a witch hunt against me that is being carried forward by Obama holdovers in Attorney General Sessions’ Department of Justice.”

“I’m being convicted for honestly trying to enforce the immigration laws that Trump swore during the campaign he would uphold if elected president,” Arpaio insisted.

Arpaio was one of Trump’s early supporters, endorsing Trump formally in a statement issued on Jan. 27, 2016.

“Donald Trump is a leader. He produces results and is ready to get tough in order to protect American jobs and families,” Arpaio said in a statement released by Trump’s campaign at that time. “I have fought on the front lines to prevent illegal immigration. I know Donald Trump will stand with me and countless Americans to secure our border.”

Starting in January 2016, Arpaio began appearing with Trump at campaign rallies, endorsing Trump’s promise to “build a wall” as a needed measure to enforce aggressively immigration laws already on the books.

“I have great respect for Sheriff Arpaio,” Trump said in an official campaign statement, accepting Arpaio’s endorsement. “We must restore law and order on the border and respect the men and women of our police forces. I thank him for his support of my policies and candidacy for president.”

“A biased judge”
Arpaio’s attorney, Mark Goldman, Goldman & Zillinger PLLC in Scottsdale, Ariz., explained to Infowars.com in an exclusive telephone interview and follow-up email that the judge in the case, U.S. District Susan R. Bolton, was so biased against Arpaio that she could have written her opinion before the trial even started, stating her prejudice from the start that Arpaio was guilty of misdemeanor civil contempt guilty conviction.

Sheriff Joe Guilty of Contempt of Court, Facing Six Years in Prison at Age 85

SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio was an obstacle to the New World Order. He had to be removed in a high profile way. There’s nothing like a contempt of court charge that leads to a trial to achieve that objective.

Numerous efforts to smear the tough on crime lawman had failed in the past. Now, they’ve got the senior citizen exactly where they want him.

CBS News

PHOENIX — Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio was convicted of a criminal charge Monday for refusing to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants, marking a final rebuke for a politician who once drew strong popularity from such crackdowns but was ultimately booted from office as voters became frustrated over his headline-grabbing tactics and deepening legal troubles.

The verdict from U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton represents a victory for critics who voiced anger over Arpaio’s controversial efforts to get tough on crime, including jailing inmates in tents during triple-digit heat, forcing them to wear pink underwear and making hundreds of arrests in crackdowns that divided immigrant families.

Arpaio, who spent 24 years as the sheriff of metro Phoenix, skirted two earlier criminal investigations of his office. But he wasn’t able to avoid legal problems when he prolonged his signature immigration patrols for nearly a year and a half after a different judge ordered him to stop. That judge later ruled the policies racially profiled Latinos.

JUDGE SUSAN BOLTON.

The lawman who made defiance a hallmark of his tenure was found guilty of misdemeanor contempt-of-court for ignoring the 2011 court order to stop the patrols. The 85-year-old faces up to six years in jail, though attorneys who have followed the case doubt that someone his age would be incarcerated for this crime.

Critics hoped Arpaio’s eight-day trial in federal court in Phoenix would bring a long-awaited comeuppance for a lawman who had managed to escape accountability through much of his six terms.

Prosecutors say Arpaio violated the order so he could promote his immigration enforcement efforts in an effort to boost his 2012 re-election campaign and even bragged about his continued crackdowns.

He had acknowledged prolonging his patrols but insisted it was not intentional.

He blamed one of his former attorneys in the profiling case for not properly explaining the importance of the court order. His defense also focused on what his attorneys said were weaknesses in the court order that failed to acknowledge times when deputies would detain immigrants and later hand them over to federal authorities.

Unlike other local police leaders who left immigration enforcement to U.S. authorities, Arpaio made hundreds of arrests in traffic patrols that sought out immigrants and business raids in which his officers targeted immigrants who used fraudulent IDs to get jobs.

The efforts are similar to local immigration enforcement that President Trump has advocated. To build his highly touted deportation force, Mr. Trump is reviving a long-standing program that deputizes local officers to enforce federal immigration law.

Arpaio’s immigration powers were eventually stripped away by the courts and federal government.

The contempt-of-court case marked the first time federal authorities had prosecuted Arpaio on a criminal charge, though his office had been the subject of past investigations.

Federal authorities had looked into Arpaio’s misspending of $100 million in jail funds and his criminal investigations of political enemies. Neither investigation led to prosecution of the sheriff or his employees.

Arpaio’s criminal charges are believed to have contributed heavily to his crushing defeat in November to little-known retired Phoenix police Sgt. Paul Penzone.

Arpaio was ousted in the same election that sent Mr. Trump to the White House. Mr. Trump used some of the same immigration rhetoric that helped make Arpaio a national figure in the debate over the U.S.-Mexico border.

PENZONE FOLDED SHERIFF JOE’S TENTS.

I expect Sheriff Joe to appeal his conviction. I think he can remain free on bond while the conviction is appealed, a process that could take a year or two.

Everyone in the Media Now Pretends John McCain is a Nice Guy: You Sellouts (Styx Video)

Eleven and a half minutes. Styx calls out John McCain as a POS and condemns the hypocrites who are praising the dying McCain.

Great stuff!

From the youtube information box:

Published on Jul 20, 2017
These fakers.

The legacy media has taken notice that the alt-right is not shedding crocodile tears for insane McCain.

Excerpt from Newsweek

Most Americans met Wednesday night’s news that Arizona Senator John McCain was facing a dire diagnosis of brain cancer with shows of respect for the elder statesman and former prisoner of war. But to some on the extreme right, the longtime Republican is a traitor worthy of scorn, presumably because of his willingness to work with Democrats, as well as his criticism of President Donald Trump.

The attack on McCain–a war hero who spent more than five years in a North Vietnamese prison—is faintly reminiscent of the early days of Trump’s presidential campaign. During a family values summit in Iowa in the summer of 2015, just a month after he’d announced his seemingly quixotic bid for the White House, Trump lashed out at McCain: “He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

No, Newsweek, McCain is a warmonger who has hurt millions of people. We on the alt-right are honest, not like you fake news a-holes. McCain is garbage. He was garbage before Trump came along. He’s been garbage for decades. So, Newsweek, don’t expect us to lie and say what a great guy McCain is and how sorry we are that he’s dying.

McCain Death Watch: What the End of McCain Means for America

The following piece was clearly written before the big announcement Wednesday evening that Senator John McCain is suffering from what is obviously terminal brain cancer.

McCain’s doom may be an unhappy moment for him, his family, and the neocon warmongers that counted on him to get World War III done, but for the rest of America and the world, McCain’s total powerlessness is a good thing.

I’ve bolded key points for you skim readers.

Lew Rockwell

The Republicans finally giving up on passing an Obamacare Lite bill (now they’re going for full repeal with no immediate replacement) is a signal that big changes are on the horizon.

Trump seems more than happy with this outcome. As he should be, since this is what he originally promised.

But John McCain and the GOP leadership probably didn’t appreciate the open insurrection in the Senate.

And you can bet that now the Democrats are running scared. That they remain committed to Russia-Gate tells you just how badly they are positioned for the 2018 midterms.

With donations crashing, Kid Rock declaring to run against Debbie Stabenow in Michigan, and Diane Feinstein retiring there is the potential for a real collapse of seniority for the Democrats at the committee level in the Senate, where all the power is concentrated.

And that brings me to John McCain. Because, as I made clear in my last article, John McCain is the lynchpin to Trump getting some semblance of control over Congress. McCain is a powerful senior member of a number of committees. He ran for re-election at 79 years old to retain that seniority for the neoconservatives to enact its nihilistic foreign policy.

Make no mistake, McCain, like the rest of the DNC and GOP leadership, is a member of the “Uniparty.” That’s the one that frog-marches us towards global government, universal suffering and perpetual war.

Which is why Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell announced that the Senate will vote on a clean repeal of Obamacare without any replacement is so important.

First, it means that John McCain’s health issues are more serious than they have let on to this point. Because McCain is the leading stalking horse for the Democrats within the GOP. If he leads the way, he can keep enough members in line to get a bad bill passed.

Second, it means that the GOP leadership no longer feels it needs Obamacare to wipe the floor with the Democrats in the 2018 mid-terms.

Third, it begins the collapse of the Uniparty opposition within the GOP to Trump’s domestic policy. McConnell wouldn’t have done this if there was a way to salvage Obamacare for its corporate backers – the ones who wrote the bill in the first place. So, like the good cockroach he is, he is acceding to the reality that if they don’t repeal Obamacare now, when it collapses for real it will no longer be the Democrats’ issue.

It’ll be theirs.

But there’s more to this saga. It’s likely the end of John McCain as a major political force. Obamacare is the thin edge of the wedge that breaks the wall in front of Trump’s plans for reform. It’s a major campaign promise fulfilled. I told you that Trump needed to deal with McCain to get things moving.

It seems that time and karma may have done the job for him.

Reprinted from Russia Insider.

This piece barely scratches the surface of what McCain’s doom means to American foreign and domestic policy. With Trump announcing on Wednesday that he was pulling the CIA out of Syria in accord with President Putin’s wishes, Trump was sticking it to dying McCain, who’s been a real obstructionist to draining the swamp and making America great.

Now, if only Hillary would kick the bucket.

College Girl Follows Google Maps into Desert Survival Drama

A college girl follows Google maps down a noexistent desert road with no gas and in a remote area with no cell service.

I hate these morning news/entertainment shows that feature a white woman and a Negro male host. I also hate their smarmy smiles and condescending narration.

The story is less than four minutes. It’s the story of a girl who stupidly got herself into a mess and then did some simple things to help get her out.

“Trump is a Nazi Warmonger” Billboard in Phoenix Paid for by Taxpayer Dollars

PAID FOR BY PHOENIX, ARIZONA TAXPAYERS.

Judicial Watch via The Burning Platform

A controversial billboard depicting President Donald Trump as a Nazi was funded with taxpayer dollars and was commissioned by an “arts advocate” paid by a U.S. city to “diminish barriers,” records obtained by Judicial Watch reveal. The massive billboard caused a ruckus when it was unveiled in downtown Phoenix, Arizona in mid-March because it features a menacing portrait of Trump surrounded by mushroom clouds—in the shape of laughing clowns—and swastikas modified as dollar signs. A pin of a Russian flag appears on the president’s lapel.

The huge display towers over Grand Avenue and Taylor Street in downtown Phoenix and will remain there throughout Trump’s presidency, according to the local art gallery that claims to own it and conveniently omits that public money is involved. A multitude of local and national media outlets covered the controversy surrounding the artist that created it and the contentious image it portrays, but all have failed to uncover the important fact that taxpayer dollars are behind it. Instead, the media has reported that the Trump Nazi billboard was commissioned by the billboard owner, Beatrice Moore, a longtime patron of the arts on Grand Avenue. Moore’s deep ties to the city and the cash she receives for her various public art endeavors have remained secret. The news reports have also focused on the death threats that the artist, Karen Fiorito, has received. A local paper reported that the billboard went up during an annual art event and that the artist aimed to stir up a controversy.

Mainstream national media also failed to report the important fact that taxpayer dollars contributed to the offensive billboard. The Washington Post opted to serve as a mouthpiece for Fiorito’s anti-Trump tirade. In a piece published days after the billboard controversy hit the artist calls Trump supporters “scumbags” and says the country is on a “very dangerous path” toward “total annihilation.” A California news outlet focused on Fiorito’s death threats and her interpretation of the art, which “represents global destruction, warfare and annihilation of the planet.” The dollar swastikas represent “corporate power and greed and how our society has become all about money and corporatism,” the artist says in the story.

ARTIST KAREN FIORITO. OBAMA/HILLARY STARTED 7(?) WARS AND NOT A PEEP OUT OF THE BITCH.

Shortly after the billboard was erected Judicial Watch filed a public records request with the city of Phoenix to obtain details related to public monies connected to organizations and organizers of the sign. This week Judicial Watch received the documents that show the city of Phoenix has awarded Moore, the Trump Nazi billboard owner and a prominent figure in the local art community, thousands of dollars in grants for a program she runs called Grand Avenue Arts & Preservation (GAP), which encompasses the Art Detour event where the Nazi billboard made its debut. The publicly funded annual art celebration is touted as having “a diverse slate of activities created by local artists and art venues to celebrate the growing, vibrant Phoenix arts scene” and is described as “…one of the most important events in Phoenix’s calendar” by Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton. The event is produced by a group called Artlink, which was founded by Moore, in partnership with the city of Phoenix. Former Phoenix Deputy City Manager Rick Naimark, who retired in 2015 with a hefty pension, sits on the board of Artlink.

Moore and her various publicly-funded art enterprises received $3,500 from the city of Phoenix in July 2016, the records obtained by Judicial Watch show, which encompasses the March 2017 Art Detour event that kicked off with the Trump Nazi billboard. In August 2016 Artlink, founded by Moore, was awarded $1,800 for the 2017 Art Detour event, according to the records. Moore, who contracted Fiorito to create the anti-Trump billboard, is recognized by the city as an “artist, community organizer and arts advocate” and the annual festival she puts together with public money aims to “diminish barriers,” the records say. Funds come from “government grant monies,” including the Arizona Commission on the Arts, and the money is used for “artists’ fees.” The objectionable Trump billboard, which involves taxpayer money, doesn’t appear to promote a “growing, vibrant” art scene in the City of Phoenix and seems to fall short of Moore’s stated goal of “diminishing barriers” through art.

And so a liberal loon celebrates her Trump Derangement Syndrome publicly by going straight into the gutter with the “Trump is a Nazi” nonsense. Wait until these loons meet a real Nazi.

Until then, never forget that it was Hillary Clinton and the (((neocons))) making all the noises about starting World War III with Russia.

Now, here’s a Nazi for this gold plated turd of an artist:
