Russell Pearce Bans Public from Pressers, Kyrsten Sinema Blasts Move

sinemak2.jpg
Sinema: Pearce's police state move unnecessary

In an effort to further curtail the rights of citizens to visit the state Senate, Senate President Russell Pearce has issued a dictate that the public will no longer be allowed to attend press conferences held inside the Senate building.

Today, he sent a missive to his fellow Senators, stating in part,

"Due to recent events within the Senate building that directly impacted the safety of the public, Members, and staff, the use of any hearing room for a press conference open to the public is no longer an option...Press conferences that do not involve an invitation to the public may continue to be held within the Senate."

Total bunk. No one's safety has been threatened. This is typical scaremongering by Pearce to rationalize a continued police state mentality in the Senate building, which we might as well now declare the Rogue Republic of Russ.

This latest order concerning press conferences relates to a demonstration led by radio host Carlos Galindo on February 22 during a press conference held by state Senator Kyrsten Sinema. Galindo was ticketed and banned from the Senate. Four other activists were arrested.

Pearce has already prevaricated on this subject, saying Sinema told security she felt threatened. Sinema denies ever having done so.

So what does Sinema think of this latest move by Pearce, using the shouting protesters at her press conference to rationalize a ban on the public at pressers?

"While I was understandably dismayed," she wrote me via text in response to my query, "that a small number of people chose to disrupt my press conference last week, I do not believe that a policy change is needed."

She continued: "I am concerned about security, of course, but I do not believe there is any value in decreasing liberty in order to obtain security. To quote Ben Franklin, `Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.'" 

The most Galindo's people did was shout and chant. I think targeting Sinema over her SB 1225 and treating her as if she's some racist bete noir like Pearce is, well, both delusional and asinine.

That said, using some folks shouting at one press conference to bar the public reeks of overreach. What Pearce is doing is attempting to demonize the pro-immigrant side of the equation as violent, so as to further keep their voices from being heard.

Ironically, there is a violent faction at the state Capitol regularly: The nativist, anti-immigrant haters, who're armed, aggro and as batty as the Carlsbad Caverns. They pull little, third-grade stunts, pushing people, trying to bully them, knowing that as Pals of Pearce they are immune from being hassled by the Capitol Police, DPS or other security present.

Basically, the POPs are thugs, there to intimidate the brown folk, and keep them away.

Just as Pearce wants to wipe out Arizona's Hispanic population, he's got his own little brand of ethnic cleansing going on at the Capitol. Remember those famous words from the introduction to SB 1070? Its stated goal is,"attrition through enforcement."

Hell, if Pearce could boot the few Hispanic Senators from the chamber, he would. Not that I would put it past him.

All Pearce needs now is some agent provocateur, some patsy, some stooge to provoke an incident at the Senate, and he'll have his excuse to put the building on lockdown, and allow in only the POPs.

Pearce is just a reincarnation of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.

True, he is a control freak. Just like his buddy Adolf. Adolf retained total control of Germany simply by pulling on German citizens heartstrings each and every time he brought up the Treaty of Versailles to further advance his cause.

True, he needs a patsy. Again, just like his buddy Adolf. Adolf blamed the Jews for his failures and used them as a patsy to enact his laws, terrorize,and harass and intimidate them. In the end, though, Adolf was as delusional as the Flaccid Fool and Candy Ass Thomas when it came to their failed bullshit RICO lawsuit.

Someone needs to do something about this tyrant. So I urge you to call Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery at (602) 372-7300 or Arizona U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke at (602) 514-7500 and tell them to get off their asses and take action against this mentally sick old man and order him to put a stop to this bullshit.

ARS 38-311 states that " The governor, every state and judicial officer, except justices of courts not of record, shall be liable to impeachment for high crimes, misdemeanors or malfeasance in office."

Exactly what has Russell Pearce done for Arizona lately? You decide.

Exactly what am I paying Monty and Burke to do? Protect and serve the citizens of the State of Arizona.

Got this from the well-known "Immigration Enforcer," now posting through us for fear that his computer IP is being tracked. Smoking too much crystal meth, Immigration? ROTFLMAO

"Class - in another blog last week, you already got reinforcement from the ex-cop Tommy Collins on the Central American slusher accounts.I could tell that Tommy agreed with your allegations.and thanks for the info at those websites above. you know with that amount of money stolen from the U.S. Treasury, Pearce and Arpaio got their dirty hands on it. mikey1969 and Kit Carson are probably too scared to mention these issues. They know if Joe wants them, eventually he and his goonies are going to get them.I mean, they got Coz, fucked him up in the MCSO jails, they got Sal reza and probably fucked him up too.You notice Sal's suing Joe again. So really it's fear of Joe and Pearce if these guys start accusing them of serious shit like stealing millions, billions. They can use that money to hire any gangsters they want to fuck their critics up."

"Mikey1969," you got a response from a Tempe Associate who says he's a member of "ASU For Liberty," who sent the release posted above:

"...all these jokers have to do is look at the evidence at the listed sites: http://wantagate.blogspot.com and http://wtsnb.blogspot.com . The first site actaully has www.scribd.com documents that they can download. In other words, "ASU For Liberty" doesn't really have to say anything.

These clowns are proving how arrogant and complacent they are by refusing to investigate the global financial terrorism that is driving their gas and food prices up, as well as destroying the World and American economies. You know that they always accuse Pearce and Arpaio of having slush funds in Honduras and elsewhere. Our allegations and evidence build on that theory.

Since Mikey1969 was the last to talk crap, let's see if he'll send an E-mail to GerriC7@gmail.com. I'm a member of "ASU For Liberty" and really want to "face down" this arrogant scumbag and his buddy Kit Carson.

They can "face down" any time they want in or about Tempe. We'll be cool, so they'll have to start any confrontation."

OK, "Mikey1969," looks like this "ASU For Liberty" dude wants to meet you straight up. We'll relay your response.

"Kit Carson" gets many responses when we send out our global blog updates. Here's one,

"....did you ever get any ID and location on that NT blogster schmuck "Kit Carson," masturbating behind his/her outdated computer? We want to peaceably meet this a-hole if he's got the cojones.

Kit Carson, if you took the time to investigate and research these issues, you'd see that they're valid. While you argue your selfish and petty agendas in your Sandbox, the World comes crashing down on you and you don't have a clue.

There are filed court documents to substantiate the claims at http://wantagate.blogspot.com and http://wtsnb.blogspot.com. There's also a copy of a complaint sent to the International Criminal Court Prosecuters.

If you had a clue, you'd look at the bigger issues in your attacks on Pearce, specifically his complicity in the theft of the global settlement funds or his knowledge and cover up of those crimes.

Admit it, Kit Carson, you're too scared to take on these powerful global forces. You're just another cowpokw worm and coward."

We're just the messengers Kit, and we know these Associates can be mean bastards. Sometimes they talk and write this way to us.

We'll relay your response.

We got the usual big boob jokes from some of our Associates obsessing on Kyrsten Sinema's well-endowed rack. This happens any time a pix of Kyrsten is posted. Real pervs. They are too obscene to post, so we'll again go with "ASU For Liberty's" press releasse sent from GerriC7@gmail.com. This crew actually claims that Senator Pearce and many other corrupt politicans have illegal slush funds overseas. They even claim that he and Sheriff Arpaio have a "New World Order" worldview. Whether you agree or not, they seem to fit well with some kind of global dictatorship, judging by what they're doing here in Arizona.

"To The Arizona Press,

Thanks to our obnoxious spamming loudmouth colleagues at "World Without Wires," for the timely blog updates from around The Globe.

As we keep fully apprised of devastating WORLDWIDE EVENTS and the ongoing THEFT OF TRILLIONS from "We The People" exposed at http://wtsnb.blogspot.com and http://wantagate.blogspot.com , ARIZONA's corrupt politicos continue to play in their RACIST and SEGREGATED SANDBOX IN THE SONORAN, oblivious to the outside forces Hell-bent on their destruction. That's us, by the way.

SORRY SANDLAND, now the World's punching bag and whipping boy. We're the HANGMEN/WOMEN, hopefully you know that also.

True to form, we gave you just enough rope to hang yourselves with. Soon the quick neck-breaker with that BIG KNOT on the side of PEARCE, ARPAIO, BREWER, and SANDLAND's necks. Ouch!

WWW's summary of the recent STEPHEN LEMONS' articles supports our assertions that "The Sonoran Bilderbergers" PEARCE, BREWER, and "Sharia Joe" ARPAIO are indeed training for their delusional and very insignificant roles in their fantasy NEW WORLD ORDER dictatorship run by "Geezer G" BUSH, Senior, BUBBA and HILARY, SARAH PALIN, ZBIGINIEW BREZHINSKI, RICHARD MELLON SCAIFE, GEORGE SOROS, and THE GERIATRIC DARK CABAL.

LEMONS pulls off another HAT TRICK in the desert with accounts of JAN "The Cabal Cowgirl" BREWER's on-call militia to illegally serve her every oppressive whim.

Next we have an apparent repeat false, malicious, and targeted arrest of the wannabe CESAR CHAVEZ - the LA RAZA racist and segregationist SALVADOR "The Black-Listed Bonehead" REZA.

He might as well be a FROSTBITTEN CANUCK, as LEMONS slams home "The Hat Trick" with a teeth-pulverizing third article about "Rancid Russell" PEARCE's ban on public attendance at taxpayer-funded press conferences, complete with a losing, but honorable, objection by KYRSTEN SINEMA.

SINEMA's actually quoting BEN FRANKLIN before CHE GUEVARA? Did she turn in her GUERILLA COMBAT GEAR and "Che Beret?" Absolutely astonishing! Beats getting executed in a BOLIVIAN SCHOOLHOUSE like EL CHE. Please see http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.c...

The SANDLAND REPUBLICANS seem to be having a dress rehearsal for their BILDERBERGER handlers. If they can't cut it as NWO lackey underbosses, BREWER, PEARCE, and ARPAIO will be out on the street "running with the dogs," which include arch-enemies STEPHEN LEMONS, KYRSTEN SINEMA, SALVADOR REZA, CARLOS GALINDO, SOMOS REPUBLICANS, and even us!

Rest assured, there will be no GLOBAL or SANDLAND dictatorships because these inward-focused, self-aggrandizing, arrogant, stupid, and greedy morons will suffer the same fate as CARLY FIORINA when she ran XEROX into the ground.

CARLY was the dope who was so stupid that she didn't see the importance of the PC before "Cyber Dork" BILL GATES cornered his monopolistic market and beat the bimbo CARLY into the ground. Duh!

As we said, inward-focus and self-aggrandizement will destroy you and your organization every time in this CUTTHROAT GLOBAL ARENA that we LOVE to spar in.

Speaking of global, bring on the REAL LA COSA NOSTRA of SICILY, THE CIA, THE VATICAN BANK, SILVIO BERLUSCONI, GIANCARLO BRUNO, and DANIEL DAL BOSCO - we'd get BORED without our PUNKS. Mere sparring partners to BEAT INTO THE GROUND MERCILESSLY.

We're hoping to see STEPHEN LEMONS get OUT OF THAT DEPRESSING SANDBOX and GO GLOBAL as we defeat the NWO and its wannabe lackeys like PEARCE, ARPAIO, and BREWER.

You will only defeat them by beating down their BIG MONEY FINANCIERS and emptying their illegal SLUSH FUND ACCOUNTS HOLDING BILLIONS STOLEN FROM YOU and REINVESTED on a GLOBAL SCALE.

Enough of your local-yokel "Band-Aid" remedies. Hint, hint.

Remember - PUT POLITICS ASIDE, think FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY for "We The People,' and GET THAT LOOT BACK!

Thank you.

Alot of people don't know this about Krystin Sinema, but she is a major-league nymphomaniac, I am talking Debbie-Does-Compton level whore here. Don't believe me? Visit Discretions adult club every other Thursday after about 10 PM. She usually wears a pink wig and goes by the name "Kitty", and believe me, she is a VERY bad girl. She is especially fond of gangbanger types, which I guess helps to explain her political stance, although I am surprised she can even stand after some of the stuff I have seen her do. I always laugh when I see her on TV trying to make some political point because I can't help but remember the time she let like 10 black dudes orgasm on her face a few months ago, it was classic.

Is what Pearce doing legal? Though he is the Senate Pres, can he make up Senate rules (this and the black list) and put them in place without even a vote by the Senate?

We know that Tom Horne will never look into the legality, so who will?

Kit Carson
Kit Carson

Any chance a real journalist can start covering Pearce? Missing from this report:

1) What is the legal basis for Pearce's proclaimation? Not his stated rationale, but the legal authority he claims for implementing this policy? Does he in fact have the right to tell senators whom they can invite?

2) What is the AZ law regarding access to public buildings?

3) What is the definition of "press" when compared to "public?" In a digital age, isn't even the most unread of bloggers a member of the press? How much popularity does one need to be in the press? What can stop "the public" from being certified as being "press?"

4) What legal challenges might one take against the policy? (okay, this one goes beyond basic journalism, but is the style of advocacy reporting one expects from a news magazine such as the PNT.

Bottom line: quit whining and start reporting.

I'm actually "dismayed" at Carlos Galindo and his "people". Krysten Sinema is the only ally we have against that traitorous tyrant Russell Pearce. In fact, Sinema is the only one among the Democrat jellyfishes, with a backbone. She fights tooth and nail for maintaining some rationality in the Senate and Legislatures. And here you have the racist "La Raza" types protesting her, its a disgrace.

Stephen, Thanks for staying on the developments at the Senate. You are courageous to take this tyrant on. This is truly chilling stuff and not the America we've known. Pearce truly wants to drive people out of the state and that includes tourists and new business. Who in the hell wants to visit a police/prison state?

It is a blog Kit. Feel free to add. But thanks for asking these important questions.

I especially like the question as to how "press" is defined. Not that I agree with it, but according to MCSO, "member of the press" is a person affiliated with a credible news publication or TV/Radio station. Accordingly New Times does not qualify, because MCSO deemed them not credible. You have to agree with MCSO's line to be credible.

But, Hendershott used tons of mouse clicks reading the non credible New Times. Just some irony to bring up.

A short sweet statement that I believe to be correct. This ban is not about security. This ban is about a pussy's inability to accept criticism or challenge. Pearce is only a man when he is beating his wife or ranting or stepping on someone else.

Some of what Pearce wants to achieve is parallel with what I want. I would like to see immigration problems solved. His methods and approach to this and to the states budget/economy are anything but sensible and effective for the state and its residents. They will cause us ruin for the next decade or more.

Pearce is just a bully that is intent on getting his way. Lack of direct criticism is in his eyes a mandate from the public to pursue his wacky legislation full speed ahead. The coward's way to deal with criticism is to lock it out so you don't hear it.

"Pussy" is right. Of course he had a stint working for "America's Toughest Pussy" as well. You know, the clown that threw a public temper tantrum because he was uninvited to a reading to kids event.
