Russell Pearce Recall Committee Formed by "Outside Interests"

Tomom_Tancredo,.jpg
Non-Arizonan Tom Tancredo comes to Russ' rescue with an out-of-state anti-recall committee

Ah, sweet irony.

State Senate President Russell Pearce's supporters love to prevaricate about Citizens for a Better Arizona, the committee that's collected enough signatures in Legislative District 18 to force a recall of Pearce, alleging that the recall has been organized by unnamed "outside interests."

Which is total bull, as I've pointed out in previous blogs. But now who's coming to Pearce's rescue in the November 8 recall election? An anti-recall group formed by, you guessed it, outside interests.

Thursday, the "Committee To Oppose Recall of Russell Pearce" filed paperwork with the Arizona Secretary of State's Office, allowing it to raise money to save Pearce's hide.

It's headquarters? Vienna, Virginia, 12 miles away from Washington, D.C. 

Both its treasurer and its chairman are non-Arizonans: The latter is ex-Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo, and the former is Angela "Bay" Buchanan, sister of wingnut Republican Pat Buchanan.

Tancredo and Buchanan are co-chairs of the Team America PAC, a rabidly nativist organization that just loves bashing Mexicans and supports any politician doing likewise. 

(Note: The Web site for Team America openly links to hate sites such as VDARE.com,named for the first white baby born in the New World, and the vicious, bigoted Social Contract Press, among others of this ilk.)

Team America PAC is the "parent" organization of its Pearce-bolstering offspring. So if you want to talk with some Pearce supporters, you'll have to call long distance to the PAC's Virginia number at (703) 255-9119.

Thing is, Team America PAC has reportedly been raising money to support Pearce via e-mail blasts at least since the beginning of June. But SOS spokesman Matt Roberts told me that a committee can only begin taking donations once it has filed paperwork with the Arizona SOS. 

That means there can be no backdated checks. Team America could return the contributions it's received thus far and have them resubmitted. Anything before July 21 will not be kosher under state statute.

By contrast, the members and co-founders of Citizens for a Better Arizona are from Arizona. The more than 10,000 valid signatures making the recall a reality? From Pearce's Legislative District 18.

Pearce cannot survive without outside help, and most donations to his legislative campaigns have come from outside his district. The people who know ol' Russ the best -- his neighbors -- won't give him dime one.

So next time you see Pearce, or Pearce shills such as political operatives Stan Barnes or Chuck Coughlin on the boob tube denouncing the fictional "outside interests" who're supposedly cramming this recall down Pearce's gullet, you have my official permission to picture Pearce, Buchanan and Tancredo in a D.C. bar swilling martinis and laugh till your ribs explode.

 When employees are injured on the job, they ere entitled to certain benefits including medical care, lost wages, permanent impairment,

disfigurement, and permanent disability.  Unfortunately Workers’ Compensation is a very complicated, fast-paced, and technical – your claim and

benefits can be closed, limited, or lost without your knowledge or permission.

You can rant and rave all you want about Pearce but he will win re election in his district.  No liberal or otherwise will be able to beat  him in his own district.  It's fact  All this hype and money going to be spent on this recall I feel will be thrown out the window. 

So if and I say IF he wins re election, who wins here?   It may be an expensive lesson to all of his nay sayers / Liberals.  I still don't get why most people dont understand " ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL".. no other way around.. I welcome anyone who comes to our country legally.  

Illegals, stay out and go home!   Maybe Pearce wouldn't have to support these type of Bills if the Feds did their job... Just sayin !

Right after the announcement of the effort to recall Pearce, boy do I remember the first words out of Russell Pearce's mouth.....that we (his constituents) were "outsiders"  and that we were "left-wing anarchists."   Since I've lived in this same district for more decades than I care to count, that "outsiders" blame/game really ticked me off.  Then I remembered his week's stay at ALEC's expense in D.C. in about Dec. 2009 (which covered his proposed SB 1070) and  the private prison people, CCA, being at his same table....and then out-of-state FAIR having authored "his" SB 1070....and how many others that have feathered Pearce's nest in exchange for legislation he sponsors.  Stephen's blog here was especially informative.  By now it's a pretty good assessment of Russell Pearce, that ANYTHING he says is just the opposite of how things really are with him.

For example, "patriot,"  "advocate of the rule of law," "believer in U.S. Constitution," "people in my district know me,"  "I did exactly what I promised to do,"  "conservative," etc., etc.

Pearce is rotten to the core.

So the only people to stand up for Pearce so far are lobbyists, Brewer, Arpaio, and wingnuts from Virginia? 

I wonder what Chuck Coughlin would say to the Republican precinct committee people in LD18 who didn't even vote in Russell Pearce to represent them at the state party level.  Pearce had to go whining to the County party to have a re-vote and even then was selected 53rd out of 53 delegates (the lowest vote getter).  You're right, Russell, the voters of Mesa DO know you - and want you out.

I could've sworn the state solicitor general told Pearce he couldn't use outside money to cover his fat corrupt ass in the recall.

Then again, Pearce IS a mentally sick old man who conveniently "forgot" the solicitor general's decision. He really has learned well from his good buddy the MCSO shurf.

Let's review Pearce's resume, shall we?

*Fired as MCSO Chief Deputy by the Flaccid Fool.*Fired as head of the MVD by Governor Jane Dee Hull. *Fired by voters as state Senate president.

Let's review Pearce's associations, shall we?

*JT Ready, a reputed neo-Nazi.*JD Hayworth, a disgraced former Arizona Congressman and infomercial expert. *Joe Arpaio, Maricopa County's corrupt county law-enforcement chief.

Don't forget that Pearce accepted almost $40,000 worth of kickbacks from the Fiesta Bowl.  

Why would ANYONE in their right mind put this fool back in office?

Are the mormons sucking 30 MILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR out of the Arizona Welfare system? This is according to two ex-mormons on the Dr Drew Program (the segment was about the upcoming WARREN JEFFS TRIAL).  It was said that this is welfare fraud, and the Arizona taxpayers were paying for this. IS THIS TRUE?   The unemployed can't get unemployment, but the mormons get 30 million dollars a year in welfare to support the cults illegal activities.  Can any of you answer this question?

It likely gets more ugly (and more outside influence) the more you follow the money.

Tancredo and VDare are both bankrolled by right-wing Pittsburgh billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife. The money used to run through Nativist John Tanton's organization, FAIR, but after being exposed for his racist views, Tanton stepped down from the board of FAIR.  This humorously enough got him flamed by VDare for not proudly owning up to his racist, White supremacist views.

http://ncdreamteam.org/2011/05...

So the money might follow a few different bends in the stream, but bet your ass the big bankroll behind the Pearce anti-recall campaign turns out to be Richard Mellon Scaife.

 The voters of district 18 are smarter than Pearce gives them credit.  They know about his 10 trips courtesy of the Fiesta Bowl where he took his family to fancy hotels including chauffeur service.  They know that the total expense of $39,000 was more than any other AZ politician.  They can see the empty houses, businesses, and schools all around district 18 and use their own common sense to see Pearce has not helped this district.  They can read about all his dealings with lobbyists and private prison companies which seem to occupy all his time instead of the needs of the people in district 18. They can remember how as Senate President he bullied people by removing benches, having pictures taken and limiting access to our Senators, even for the press. They can feel the pain of losing medical benefits, unemployment, and huge cuts in their children's education.  The people of district 18 are much smarter than Russell Pearce gives them credit.  They can see through his deceptions and believe me, they will remember in November.

I find it amazing that Pearce said over and over again until his face turned blue that the people that are trying to recall him are outsiders... Seriously?  The people who want the recall are ALL from his district.. they signed the damn petition.  

If anything: Its the outsiders that are trying to silence the people of that district... by raising money to go against what the people of that district want.. the RECALL.

Look who's calling the kettle black (Coughlin) .. why don't you go see if you can help Kevin Tyne find a job or run him for some public office like dog catcher.

Not sure about the welfare dollars part, but Colorado City, Arizona is a FLDS-controlled area on the Arizona/Utah border. Warren Jeffs actually began building his cult compound there but moved it to Texas for various reasons.

Try to find the documentary "Damned to Heaven". It's all about this community and it exposes the real truth behind the FLDS and its illegal and disgusting practices of bigomy, childhood sexual abuse, spousal abuse and abandonment (adolescent and teenage boys are driven to other cities and abandoned in order to keep the woman-to-male ratio high enough for the men to have as many wives as possible).

Molly is correct though that the FLDS church is a separate group from the mainstream LDSers.HOWEVER, I find it REALLY REALLY odd that the state AG (Horne) and Superintendent of Education (Huppenthal) are all over the Tuscon Unified School District attacking its ethnic studies programs, but the FLDS compounds remain free to teach whatever they want. And one of the things preached by the FLDS is that the more wives you have the better chance you have of going to Heaven. You'd think Horne and especially Huppenthal would have a big problem with this kind of thing (considering it's, you know, illegal and all), but apparently it's not something they feel they need to concern themselves with. La Raza is apparently the only threat to America.

Mormon owned businesses in Mesa And Salt Lake City got between 50 and 70 million AZ taxpayer $ from the Alt. Fuels. fiasco. Brown and Brown Chevrolet got quite a bit. There is a reason these folks got run out of New York, Ohio, and Illinois. The citizens of Illinois saw fit to haul Joseph Smith out of jail and hang him.

"Reza was trespassed from the property because of his actions the previous day"

Reza was arrested for being on the property to meet with a representative because of his LAWFUL actions on the previous day. He was told that King Russell had banned him from the senate building for life.

See, there's this thing that you and Pearce both apparently hold in contempt, called the First Amendment. It guarantees the right to freedom of speech and to assemble peaceably and demand redress of one's grievances - which is what Reza was doing on the previous day.

Un-American buttmonkeys like you and Pearce hold the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in contempt, and piss on the principles on which this country was founded, even while you wrap yourselves in the flag. You like to cry "what part of illegal don't you understand," but that is a vain attempt to disguise your bigotry as respect for the rule of law.

Reza was at the Senate building to see Gallardo, which Gallardo has confirmed. Pearce ordered him to leave, which Pearce cannot do. If there was an issue with Reza from the previous day, it should've been addressed then.

An absolute bullshit lie.

Education- Its interesting you are able to blame the education shortfall on Russel Pearce.   I do believe the education issue has been a problem long before Pearce was in power in the State Senate.  I don't disagree there is a problem with education, however I disagree that throwing money at a problem automatically fixes it.

Bollocks. Snow and Carpio "profit" from their clients regardless of immigration status. The fact that undocumented immigrants are still protected under Arizona workers comp law obviously has you in a tizzy. Good. Get an ulcer over it.

"the majority of voters in Arizona stand for the rule of law"

And Snow and Carpio also stand for the rule of law, which protects injured workers regardless of immigration status.

Suck on it.

zooed

Now you're changing the argument - a staple of liberalism.  I never said what Snow was doing was illegal.  I said that he resents Pearce and has both feet in the recall because he PROFITS from illegal aliens, and that his "clientele" are leaving Arizona in droves because of the legislation Pearce has gotten passed.  What part of "conflict of interest" don't you understand? 

I realize that the dried-up old hippies who run PNT and most of their followers are on board for anything illegal, but the majority of voters in Arizona stand for the rule of law - and have demonstrated that time and time again.  These two carpetbaggers (Parraz and Snow) might be encouraged by screaming mimis from the subculture, but that is as far as it will go.

I see that you omitted the following -

"We believe in justice for all injured Arizona workers. Our attorneys Chad Snow and Xavier Alexander Carpiohave almost 20 years of experience getting results for injured workersof all backgrounds. Both partners and all staff are fluent in theSpanish language, so you will feel comfortable speaking with us aboutyour case.Remember: If you were injured at your job in Arizona, your immigration status is not a factor.You are as deserving of workers' compensation benefits as a worker whois a U.S. citizen. The Arizona Workers Compensation Act defines coveredemployees as "every person in the service of an employer ... includingaliens legally or illegally permitted to work for hire ... " (A.R.S.23-901(6)(b)".

Snow and Carpio are acting in accordance with state law, and indeed, working to make sure that injured employees are treated in accordance with state law.

What part of "legal" don't you understand?

Um, last I checked, the people have a right to speak to their representatives. If my memory serves me, Reza was at the Capitol to see Senator Gallardo (Gallardo has confirmed this) when Pearce banished him.

You are either not a gun owner or are very dimwitted. Regardless whether a gun is loaded or not, it is ALWAYS treated as loaded (even Senate Ethics Chairman Ron Gould said the same). If Pearce ordered Klein to point the weapon at the reporter, it's another good reason to boot his sorry ass out.

Tax cuts have not created jobs. That's been proven. If anything, businesses need to pay more in taxes for outsourcing jobs to Mexico and China. Quantity over quality seems to be the business' theme.

I've had no problems with Obama as president. I agree that some of the things he has done with his time in office hasn't benefitted the United States, but he is due credit for trying. Obama gets credit for the killing of bin Laden, someone W stopped pursuing in 2005. Obama gets credit for increasing border security, another W failure.  

Yes Tent City is a bad thing. It's a very bad thing when temperatures in Phoenix are 120 degrees and the temperatures inside those tents are 145-150 degrees. Apparently your heroes Pearce and the MCSO shurf don't realize that people can suffer heat related injuries and death in those tents, which would expose Maricopa County to liability. No I have never been to jail and have no intention of going to jail.

Pearce slashing education is the reason why Arizona schools are 50th in the country. The education budget should be untouchable so that Arizona can gain as many skilled, educated people as possible, which would greatly benefit the state and create jobs.

 "Are you also saying that groups "outside Arizona" like La Raza and Maldef aren't pouring money into this recall campaign???"

Mistalee

OK, you are apparently too fucking stupid to understand that workers compensation protects employers from lawsuits, and is not conditioned on immigration status. Employers are required to insure their employees against on-the-job injuries, plain and simple. If Snow assists "illegals" in filing workers comp claims, good for him! He is providing a needed service, and he is helping assure that the hospital and doctor's bills incurred for the treatment of those injuries get paid. 

Of course, I have only your dubious word that Snow and Carpio represents "illegals" in their workers comp cases. As far as I know, Snow and Carpio represents employees in workers comp cases. Under Arizona law, the immigration status of the employee in a workers comp case is irrelevant and immaterial, so I would be surprised if ANY Arizona attorney specializing in workers comp discriminated based on immigration status. But you made the claim.  Please explain to us how you have obtained inside first-hand knowledge of the immigration status of Snow's clients.

You refute nothing and say nothing of substance.

Pearce DID make it acceptable for Lori Klein to brandish a loaded weapon during an interview with a reporter, pointing it at his body as has been acknowledged by those who where there. Pearce is a coward. He wants to be able to carry while preventing others from doing so in his work environment. What jobs have been created as a result of RuSSell Pearce's actions? Be specific. .Pearce's public and personal association with neo-nazi JT Ready and his forwarding of racist emails that originated with the hate group National Alliance are a matter of public record. So is his firing for altering driving records as a political favor. So is his association with twice-convicted criminal Glenn Spencer.

You do not dispute that education spending has been slashed during Pearce's period of "leadership." Instead you offer nothing other than a non-answer that says nothing useful to the discussion. Like your "hero", you offer nothing of substance to this discussion and a whole lot of shit-talking.

What exactly were the "blatant lies" and "distractions from the truth?"

That Parrez ISN"T a failed candidate for office.  Or the Snow ISN'T the owner of Snow & Carpio which represents illegals in filing of workers' comp claims?  That he is NOT a profiteer who wants the illegals to keep coming and resents Pearce for thinning his income pool? 

Are you also saying that groups "outside Arizona" like La Raza and Maldef aren't pouring money into this recall campaign???

Eat me.

lol Zooed, i think youve been Snowed! (like that one chad hehe)..seriously, your deranged comments are typical of a Pearce follower.  Blatant lies, distractions from the truth, and without any merit or facts to back it up.  Try this, PEARCE has taken bribes, TWICE, has erased DUI's from friends records, and clearly represents groups outside of AZ. Hence why he must get help from FAIR and this other group.  Both organizations who have one thing in common, hatred of illegals.  If thats the only people Pearce can get to support him, it shouldnt be a shock that was his only interest in pursuing this last legislative session! Next time, try FACTS, those little things that come from the truth. Maybe people would attempt to take you serious at that point..Until then, POUND SAND asshole!

*Banishes Arizonans from the state Senate building.> yep. The loudmouth push-cart vendor from California, Salvador Reza.

*Allows senators to carry loaded weapons into the state Senate building and allows them to point their weapons at news reporters.> Yeah right. He probably ordered the gun pointing.

*Does absolutely nothing to create jobs and lower Arizona's 9.3% unemployment rate. He also refuses to provide unemployment benefits extensions for those who can't find work.> Creating jobs involves tax cuts for business, several which were passed in the last session.  The All Star Game was here, the conventions are still coming, and the "boycott impact" is a crock of bull right out of the La Raza playbook. 

*Manages to get Arizona sued over SB1070, though I agree with Pearce's position regarding the criminal illegals. > Only because the pimples/crack crowd voted in Obama, who wants as many Mexican votes as possible in 2012.

*Associates with neo-Nazis and corrupt politicians. Pearce is also responsible for Tent City > This is and has been pure innuendo without substance.  So Tent City is a bad thing? Speaking from experience?

*Slashes education and health care to the bone to "balance" the budget. > As a result of Pearce's work, K-12 enrollment has dropped substantially as illegals leave Arizona.  So you want to pay for cabs to shuffle people who are NOT disabled to doctor appointments?

Thanks for your enlightened wisdom on "Arizona politics."

If memory serves me, lawyers have an obligation to help their clients.

Seems to me you don't know anything about the situation with Pearce and his mental instability.

Let's review, although this might hurt your head:

*Banishes Arizonans from the state Senate building. *Allows senators to carry loaded weapons into the state Senate building and allows them to point their weapons at news reporters. *Does absolutely nothing to create jobs and lower Arizona's 9.3% unemployment rate. He also refuses to provide unemployment benefits extensions for those who can't find work.

*Manages to get Arizona sued over SB1070, though I agree with Pearce's position regarding the criminal illegals.

*Associates with neo-Nazis and corrupt politicians. Pearce is also responsible for Tent City.

*Slashes education and health care to the bone to "balance" the budget.

You have lots to learn about Arizona politics...

Why don't you tell everyone that you are a sleazy lawyer who makes a living filing workers' compensation claims for illegal aliens and see what they think of you?  Did you really think Pearce would resign because of some low-life pukes like you and Parraz?  Parraz is a failed wanna-be politician, and you by occupation are an illegal immigration profiteer who has a vested interest in the continuing trespass of our state and country.  Only an idiot would shoot his mouth off about the outcome of an election before it's happened, but then consider the source.

The two are not mutually exclusive. Indeed, they tend to go hand in hand.
