What Washington needs is adult supervision. Barack Obama
This administration and Congress are becoming an embarrassment to the Citizens of these united States. With out of touch views, treaty’s that no Citizen wants, laws being passed that are unConstitutional in nature, one has to wonder if they are all on drugs. Obama himself has said that Washington needs adult supervision. I agree. It is probably the only thing that Obama and I agree on. But with these greedy, self-absorbed children in Washington, Citizens NEED to watch over them.
Washington is mad because our Sheriff Arpaio shows them up terribly! Janet Napolitano is the biggest wimp that has ever set foot into the homeland security office. Calls for her resignation are getting louder. She should have used her time and efforts to actually do something with her office instead of call half the country terrorists in that asinine report. Does anyone actually listen to these fools any more? Oh, and by the way, there has been a lawsuit filed against Janet Napolitano and Erick Holder by The Thomas More Law Center. Bet you didn’t hear about that one huh?
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Law Center stated, “Janet Napolitano is lying to the American people when she says the Report is not based on ideology or political beliefs. In fact, her report would have the admiration of the Gestapo and any current or past dictator in the way it targets political opponents. This incompetently written intelligence assessment, which directs law enforcement officials across the country to target and report on American citizens who have the political beliefs mentioned in the report, will be used as a tool to stifle political opposition and opinions. It will give a pretext for opponents of those Americans to report them to police as rightwing extremists and terrorists. You can imagine what happens then.”
Tim Macy, Vice Chariman of the Gun Owners of America has weighed in on the issue of criminal illegals now and is in support of our Sheriff Arpaio. Considering the inept feds and their open border agendas, I guess we can thank them for this new swine flu crossing the border. After all, if they would quit talking about enforcement and ACTUALLY DO enforcement of our borders, we wouldn’t be plagued with this flu. But that seems to be more than the feds are capable of these days. They would rather have the borders and ports wide open and treat Citizens as criminals or terrorists than actually make America safe for her Citizens. Yea Obama! That ‘s what happens when you elect a no-experience, non-intelligent man to be POTUS.
Tim Macy would love to see our Sheriff Arpaio put in Janet Napolitanos place at Homeland Security. He’s written an article about just that. However, I hope that we here in Maricopa county NEVER lose him! The article Found Here:
Arpaio is most well known for his strong stance against illegal immigration. In 2005, Arizona made smuggling illegal aliens a state felony. That action empowered officers such as Sheriff Arpaio to enforce immigration law, something at which the federal government has failed miserably.
But perhaps what enrages the anti-gun liberal establishment the most — though it almost never makes the news — is that Sheriff Arpaio actually believes in the Second Amendment and he trusts average citizens with firearms! Arpaio deputized citizen volunteers from every walk of life and income bracket. These citizen-volunteers patrol malls, arrest graffiti violators, dead beat parents, and even illegal aliens. The volunteers furnish their own airplanes, jeeps and horses — and they are armed.
Yup, Washington definitely needs adult supervision as those involved in these agencies are simply out to lunch with their views and desires for headlines and policies. Way to go Janet!!!
We also have the ability, as Citizens in Maricopa country, to report any suspected criminal illegals as we see or find them and the Sheriff will check it out. I can’t tell you just how grateful I am that someone in law enforcement is listening to We the People and feel sorry for those who don’t have the support and confidence of their Sheriffs that we here in Maricopa have. It is truly a blessing and those in Washington be damned and go to hades for their investigations and opinions. Considering they are all on the take, (as we’d say in the old days), they have no room to open their mouths. The day they kick the lobbyists out of Washington is the day I’ll start to listen to what they have to say. Until then they are all a bunch of criminals to me. I have ZERO respect for any and all government authorities that are involved in Washington!
The criminal illegal population here in Maricopa county has decreased dramatically since Sheriff Arpaio started doing his crime sweeps. Being elected by We the People, Sheriff Arpaio isn’t answerable to the Washington fools, wimps, and criminal illegal alien lovers. They can moan and groan all they want to but it won’t make any difference to our Sheriff! And We the People support our Sheriff 110%. His consistent landslide election victories are proof of that!
You can gain a great history lesson on what a Sheriff is and is not HERE:
LEGAL POWER OF THE SHERIFF
For many years it has been known that modern sheriffs are vested with the powers and duties possessed by their predecessors under common law. In 1941, a landmark graduate student dissertation was written by an A. Anderson and stated “While the legislature may impose additional duties upon the sheriff, where he is recognized as a constitutional officer, it cannot restrict or reduce his powers as allowed by the Constitution, or where they were recognized when the constitution was adopted.” Anderson continued on to say, “The legislature may vary the duties of a constitutional office, but it may not change the duties so as to destroy the power to perform the duties of the office.“
Anderson found that it was legally acceptable for State legislatures to impose upon sheriffs new duties growing out of public policy or convenience. However, the state legislatures still can not strip the sheriffs of their “time honored and common law functions”. The legislatures cannot “devolve them upon the incumbents of other offices created by legislative authority.” From this, today’s sheriffs have both expressed constitutional and statutory grants of authority. They also have implied authority based on their predecessors actions and can utilize it when it will aid their expressed authority.
The modern sheriffs’ provinces and scope of authority can be determined by studying the modern day legislation. The sheriff has the right and duty to enforce any of this legislation as it concerns securing the peace, order, safety, and comfort of the community under his jurisdiction. In enforcing such legislation, the sheriff satisfies his constitutional obligations in enforcing the republic’s laws, protecting the lives and property of it’s people, and safeguarding the health and morals of the community. (changed *democracy* to republic since we live in a Republic, JMT)
So Washington and the Judiciary Committee can kiss our collective assets for all we care. Go ahead and do what you will and we will ignore you all the same. You have NO authority in this county! Neither does Congress and that must just boil their buns! LOL!
We the People here in Phoenix and Maricopa county love our Sheriff Joe Arpaio! You can keep your hearings and your committees but until Congress and the POTUS come back to the Constitution of these united States, we won’t pay a bit of attention you blow hards. You can fume all you want we’ll just laugh at you! Our Sheriff is doing his duty by and to the Citizens of this State regardless of the criminal illegal supporters in Washington or even here in Arizona. Get the heck out of our business you idiots and move to a different State or county if you don’t like what you get here. We really don’t care!
If those in Washington wish some respect they should respect the rights of the Citizens of this country. Until and unless they do so we will have no respect, nor show any, to those in Washington!
According to AZCentral:
But Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., another member of the committee, said Conyers routinely uses the panel in politically motivated ways.
“It’s hard for much to surprise me anymore, but this, in my judgment, is just another witch hunt by the liberals on the House Judiciary Committee,” Franks said.
The Huffington Post reports that the Sheriff will not be prosecuted. Good! He isn’t under the authority of the feds in any way.
She’s right, the letter makes no mention of doing anything more than make suggestions if any violations are found. However, I have faith in our Sheriff Arpaio and his deputies have NOT violated any supposed rights of criminal illegal aliens. Smoke and mirrors so that the pro-criminals illegals, pro-amnesty people feel better. Do you??? < snickers >
Sheriff Joe Arpaio Immigration Enforcement
In the minds of the Citizens here in Maricopa county, if you don’t want to wind up on a chain gang or in a tent in the middle of summer, don’t be breaking our laws. Keeping the CITIZENS of this county safe is our Sheriff’s aim. Those who don’t like it can take a flying leap of a high cliff. We really don’t care. Those soft on criminal aliens can go cry on the shoulders of whomever they want to, it won’t change things here in Maricopa county.
So while it is nice to know that nothing serious is going to happen to OUR Sheriff Joe Arpaio we’d rather just have Washington mind its own business. It’s nice to have support, but he has the Citizens of Maricopa county behind him and that is all he needs! Keep up the great job Sheriff Arpaio!
