Neo-Nazi J.T. Ready Runs for Pinal County Sheriff as a Democrat (w/Update)

The forms also state that both Ready and Hughes share the same Maricopa address. A woman by the name of "Amber Mederos" is listed as treasurer of the "Committee to Elect J.T. Ready."

As Ready was once a registered Republican and a GOP precinct committeeman when he lived in Mesa, why has he now switched over to the Ds?

"It's the party of Jim Crow, [late U.S. Senator and one-time KKK member] Robert Byrd, and [late Alabama Governor and one-time segregationist] George Wallace," he cracked. "You gotta bring it home, know what I mean?"

Ready in 2009 with NSM member Harry Hughes (left), now chair of Ready's exploratory committee 

He described the exploratory phase of his campaign as "kinda putting your French Tickler on," but said his campaign was "for real" and he hoped to draw support from all across the political spectrum.

"We should have freedom in this country," he intoned, much like a candidate for office. "Whether or not it's on the left or right-wing extreme, as long as it's done lawfully, we need those things in place to prevent the middle from being eroded upon through tyranny."

When I asked him if he was going to distance himself from his neo-Nazi activities -- attending NSM marches, holding up a portrait of Hitler at one counter-demonstration, appearing in full NSM battle gear in another, and keeping an active page on NewSaxon.org, billed as an "online community for whites, by whites" -- he skirted the issue, but would not badmouth his far-rightwing activism.

From 2007, when Pearce and Ready were still tight

"There's a lot of history and things that need to be studied and talked about," he replied of former statements praising Hitler. "More than at a coffeeshop, more than what's going to be canned down for us down at a university.

"I mean, I just bought Mao's Little Red Book...Does that make me a communist if I go out there and say some things from Mao?"

Some may think Ready will be easy to dismiss, what with his NSM-parading, media-garnering stunts and a record that includes being booted from the U.S. Marines and weird run-ins with law enforcement, such as a 2007 incident in which he was arrested for driving around with fictitious plates on his car.

Ready leads a 2009 neo-Nazi rally in Riverside, California

Yet, I know him to be intelligent, media-savvy, and a practiced public speaker. Groomed by his erstwhile mentor Pearce to run for office (Ready ran for Mesa City Council long ago and lost), he remains a far better communicator than Pearce will ever be.

Indeed, I'll never forget his 2007 speech before a nativist rally at the state Capitol, where Pearce applauded him and later worked the crowd with him arm-in-arm. Ready had the Mexican-haters eating out of his hands with a fiery address, talking about jerking noncompliant judges around by their collars and sealing off America with Marine divisions.

Chilling stuff. But also red meat for the nativists, who at that time were happy to have Ready in their ranks, no matter his extremism.

Pearce finally distanced himself from Ready during a 2008 re-election campaign. In 2010, I exposed how Pearce had helped initiate Ready into the Mormon faith, and Ready went on the record, denouncing Pearce as "the worst type of racist" and slamming him as a hypocrite.

Ever-quotable and eager to play the ham, Ready knows how to woo some members of the media, who remain ignorant or indifferent to his well-documented history.

"I can honestly say that I don't look back with regret at things in my life that have cost me great pain," he told me. "I consider it all a journey and a learning experience. Everything enriches us if we choose to take those things and use them for a better purpose...and that's what I'm going to do here in Pinal County with this exploratory committee."

In 2007, Ready attends an NSM rally in Omaha, Nebraska

Given such statements, I wonder if other members of the Fourth Estate will conveniently overlook Ready's neo-Nazi antics.

Critical of Sheriff-turned-Congressional candidate Paul Babeu's grandstanding, Ready regularly refers to the sheriff as "Baboon" and talks of battling corruption in Pinal County and favoring average citizens, even if they happen to be felons.

Regarding Babeu-ally Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whom he's supported somewhat in the past, Ready said he'll work with him, if elected, but that a "Sheriff Ready" would focus on bigger fish than the small fry Arpaio goes after in his immigration sweeps and raids.

jttyrolean.jpg
Speaking at an NSM march to the Arizona state Capitol in 2009

"If Sheriff Joe wants to take these 80 year-old posse guys and stand around with washed up celebrities [like Steven Seagal] and make little kids cry at car washes, that's his deal," Ready stated. "I'm going to be out there in the desert looking for really bad guys...not fucking around with this Filiberto's stuff."

Of his previous contretemps with law enforcement, Ready had this comeback, "Who better to put in charge of the attack dogs than somebody who's been bit by them before?"

Ready will have to gather signatures to put his name on the primary ballot, though the total amount he'll have to score has yet to be figured out. 

Pinal County Elections spokeswoman Becky Canalez told me the exact number will be determined after March 1. She could only surmise that it would be between 262 and 5,233 signatures from qualified electors. 

Meanwhile, Ready can raise money: the contribution limit is $430 per person, she said..

I wouldn't put it past him to score a slot on the primary ballot, though he's as much a Democrat as I am an Olympic gymnast. 

The example that comes to mind is KKK leader David Duke, who came in second in Louisiana's 1991 gubernatorial contest, losing in a run-off to corruption king Edwin Edwards. 

Also, if Pinal County is conservative enough to go for a far-right opportunist like Babeu, Ready might draw as much support because of his past as in spite of it.

UPDATE 1/20/12: In response to inquiries by concerned citizens, I double-checked with Pinal County Elections Director Steve Kizer today, and he confirmed that Ready is a registered Democrat in that jurisdiction. 

The date of Ready's voter registration is 12/9/11, Kizer tells me.

Ready's still listed in the Maricopa County system as a Republican living in Gilbert, but Kizer explained the following: 

"If a person moves to a different county and re-registers, the new registration will trigger a cancellation in the old jurisdiction." 

So I'm guessing there's some lag time involved. 

In any case, Ready's now a D in Pinal County.

He can run for US Senate next, since Democrat KKK members go to the US Senate (if only he could have served with Robert Byrd, D-WV, they could have got all the racist Dems together and had an old fashioned sheet meeting).

"What happens if J.T. Ready does win?"

1. American history is made: Free speech triumphs over suppression of
American rights by vicious racist hate groups such as the SPLC, ADL, et
al.

2. The people have a Constitutional rights respecting Peace Officer
serving the community instead of more tyrannical "Law Enforcement" and
armed tax collectors trampling upon people's rights.

3. Marijuana is legalized in Pinal County setting a national precedence
that non-violent acts are not a priority over real public safety
concerns.

4. Hundreds of volunteers are utilized instead of turned away, thus accomplishing the job with less strain upon the tax payer.

5. Narco-terrorist spotter positions are actually taken back from the
cartel instead of "waving the white flag" and playing sheriff in front
of cameras to punch a congressional ticket.

6. Illicit drugs smuggled into our nation which fuels bloody cartel violence in Mexico is decreased by 25% or more.

7. We get a real sheriff who actually patrols the desert at 3AM with his
deputies instead of polishing his skull for the cameras.

8. Abandoned dope houses are cleaned up and converted into deputy
substations manned by deputies, volunteers, and humanitarian aid groups
to decrease response time for citizen calls for service and to
categorically deny the cartel usage of these countywide facilities.

9. The county jail will be cleaned up of gangs, rape, and drugs-
replaced by a humane, civilized, orderly environment designed to
reintegrate citizens back into the community as productive citizens
instead of repeat offenders.

10. Partisan finger pointing will be completely abandoned, replaced with
an apolitical stance of public safety for all citizens first and foremost.

I don't know much about this person, but a lot of the posters that hate him are basically anti-white and support the ongoing genocide of the white race by an anti-white govt policy of AFRICA FOR AFRICANS, ASIA FOR ASIANS AND WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYONE.  Its a policy to guarantee fewer fewer and fewer white people in the future.  Its about forced massive immigration into white countries only with forced integration and assimilation, leading to the extinction of white people.  Who would want this but those who are anti-white and approve white genocide?  If you are white, ha, wake up and stand up. So it for the white children who have no future.  Do it for the white women who are assaulted sexually everyday by non-whites.  Do it for yourself and your desire to preserve and conserve everything you value.

Why Sheriff J.T. Ready would legalize marijuana:

1. Legalization of marijuana would help to break the fiduciary back of the cartel. A large percentage of the cartel's subversive influence comes from the illegal importation of marijuana into the United States, which could otherwise be peacefully grown here minus
the brutal violence associated with the cartel. It would be more prudent to have a real 'War on Drugs' and take down the foreign pharmaceutical factories supplying the key ingredients to the mexican meth super labs. Troops in Afghanistan, including my former marine
brother, have been ordered to turn a blind eye to the heroin industry there. Like the deck of cards used to hunt down Saddam and the Ba'ath Party, so too should a deck of cards be issued against the cartel.

2. Finite Law Enforcement resources could be freed up to go after more dangerous criminals- cartel members, gang members, international spy rings, corrupt politicians, hard core drug dealers, securing or border, child molesters, rapists, murderers, etcetera.

3. Marijuana users link to the criminal element would be largely broken, thus
mitigating the pushing of heroin, crack, and meth by these same black market drug dealers who utilize marijuana as a 'gateway' or 'key' drug to push harder addictive substances.

4. While alcohol is the contributor to many bar fights and a plague of domestic violence, I have yet to see a bong fight erupt resulting in any more damage than spilt bong water and spilt Cheetos.

5. Medicinal marijuana for glaucoma, AIDS, eating disorders, cancer, pain abatement, etc. is a natural and humane treatment versus pharmaceutical substitutes with myriad unhealthy side effects.

6. Besides the freed up law enforcement assets on the streets, federally mandated drug sentences for marijuana users could also free up much needed bed space in overcrowded prisons allowing violent offenders to stay locked off our streets up longer.

7. Marijuana can be grown like a tomato plant in one's own backyard, private greenhouse, or hydroponic set up indoors. This would cut down on people needing to deal with foreign cartel members, narco-terrorists, drug dealers, or traveling while intoxicated like to a bar.

8. Conservative pressure groups could still run their campaign ads discouraging marijuana use by teens the same as they currently do against otherwise legal tobacco or alcohol usage.

9. Marijuana clinics and high quality growers could be taxed to help the local economy and budget crisis.

10. Private employers and highly classified military, law enforcement, private contractors, and government facilities could still retain the ability to ban marijuana usage for those certain positions which the administration felt necessary just as alcohol abuse in such positions is currently discouraged or limited.

I piss clean. I still pursue narco-terrorists and help to destroy their marijuana loads. But these
are my honest points regarding the legalization of marijuana for the
American consumer.

The office of Sheriff should be void of the extreme.  The Sheriff ought to be intelligent, hard working, balanced, honorable and worthy of the awesome power of law enforcement.  Maricopa County residents found out the hard way what it means to have a rogue, unbalanced and extremely corrupt Sheriff.  Arizona doesn't need any more jokers.  When the list comes out of "donors" to this campaign (providing they amount to anything) I'd like to see that.  Then we'll all know these people will spend money on ANYTHING and we can sell them that swamp land we've all been holding on to.

Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.
The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.
Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.
What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?
How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?
And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?
But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

What about a person that dishonorably remained in the military as a weekender until they bum-rushed him out of there. A media-clown who ran for office (sheriff) and has dishonorably functioned there and now is running for office again, this time for congress. 

Paul Babeu, our hero (whether he's at the pay window or at the makeup counter).

I guess it all depends on which way you look at things.  One of his opponents in this campaign is Paul Gosar, a current U.S. Congressman. (Dr.) Gosar is a dentist who spent a lot of his adult life filling cavities, as a profession.  Mr. Babeu has also spent a lot of his adult life filling cavities, but just for the fun of it.

The division in human kind is simply contrived... there is but one race of man ... the human race.  Any distinction within the human genome simply affects the color of our skin, eye color (as you indicated).  Now the illusion that leads man to believe he is somehow superior to another man with a different skin pigmentation is cultural.  I have to say Scypher that personally I believe there are 2 primary influences in the creation of man:  one went heavy on the alien DNA... the other heavy on the monkey DNA.  Guess which strain leans more towards racism and supremcy?
