Nothing to see here, move along.

That's the message conveyed by the opening remarks of Tim Casey, Sheriff Joe Arpaio's $755,000 lawyer in the ACLU's big racial profiling trial Melendres v. Arpaio, which kicked off this morning at the Sandra Day O'Connor U.S. Courthouse in downtown Phoenix.

Race and ethnicity had zip to do with any of the stops of the plaintiffs by Maricopa County Sheriff's Office deputies, Casey told federal Judge G. Murray Snow.

You know, they just happened to be Hispanic.

The probable cause used by the MCSO during its Hispanic-hunting sweeps was "race neutral," contended the high-priced legal beagle.

As for Sheriff Joe Arpaio, his statements "show no racial animus," Casey averred with a straight face.

Guess he forgot about Joe's remarks that all Mexican migrants are "dirty" and could be carrying "disease," or the time Arpaio said someone could be stopped by deputies if you "look like you just came from Mexico."

What about all the bigoted letters from the public that the MCSO used as pretexts for Arpaio's immigration sweeps?

Sure, there were letters sent to Arpaio with "racially offensive or insensitive remarks," admitted Casey, but "no law enforcement decisions" were made based on such letters.

Why, Arpaio "does not select the sites for the saturation patrols," Casey stated. All that's passed on to Deputy Chief Brian Sands, and race and ethnicity "plays no role" in Sands' selection of a neighborhood to smother with beige shirts.

So once again, Arpaio supposedly is not in control of his own organization: Even though he's always insisting in TV interviews that he's the "shurf" and is the man in command, and though Arpaio was at every sweep, dressed in his MCSO uniform with its abundance of stars on its lapels.

And if you believe Casey's twaddle, you'll believe Casey gives all that county dough he earns as Arpaio's mouthpiece to the Girl Scouts.

I was down at Chase last night to see teh DBACK Astros game. There also happened to be Vicente Fernandez concert over at US Airways. As we were leaving I noticed Joe's Mounted Patrol was unloading their horses for some potential night rider activities.  I know Joe's staff always patrols Chase but have never seen the horses after the baseball games, much less for one with as low as a turnout as Friday night.

 

So did Joe order the patrol on his own? Seems like PPD which has authority over the area had things well in control without the boys in brown inflaming the crowd. After all US Air isn't part of the Maricopia Stadium District.

20 years of entrenched, systemic 'control" by a county sheriff who has abused his power that have cost innocent lives and destroyed families and communities because of his culture of cruelty and inhumanity to men, women and children MUST END! Arpaio needs to be sent to the jail/prison incarceration "system" that he created for "others". It's time for state legislators to put into law "TERM LIMITS" for county sheriffs and county attorneys. Where's the oversight and accountability for these offices that have destroyed innocent lives and wasted hundreds of millions of taxpayer $$'s while thumbing their noses and higher education? If people want a better Arizona, its time clean house of these entrenched elected officials who have been fed out of the same trough for far too long!

We must express in millions of votes what the TEA PARTY can accomplish for all Americans, and which will massively influence both political parties. Now I am not saying every Legislator in Congress is corrupt, but there are many lawmakers creating money off the American public. So the Democrats and Republicans need to clean house, on issues that are urgently important to the American people. By adding the impediments of the TEA PARTY that are running of the government, the real ‘PEOPLE’S PARTY’ can pressure the senators and House to carry out the bidding of the taxpayer. Here are a few of the issues that can be altered by the TEA PARTY LEADERSHIP:

 

1. The TEA PARTY can force a vote on the ‘Legal Workforce Act’ (E-Verify) and enact it as mandatory in every business nationwide. Those who feel they are not accountable will be looking at hefty fines, loss of assets and even prison. All those who ignore the I-9 audits in not implementing the computer to detect illegal aliens in the workplace will be sanctioned?

 

2. The TEA PARTY will force a vote on the ‘Birthright Citizenship Act’ concluding once and for all, that pregnant women can no longer gain citizenship through a misguided loophole for a child, just by slipping past Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) at the border or over staying a visa, leading ultimately to yet another Dream Act. What about American teenagers, who have been pushed out of jobs that were the monopoly for our kids a couple of decades back?

 

3. The TEA PARTY will ensure that the Justice Department cannot intimidate states trying to protect the right of its lawful residents. New laws will be imposed to halt Sanctuary States as California, Nevada, and New York and punish those elected officials, who have snubbed immigration laws. They will be prosecuted as ‘aiding and abetting’ illegal aliens, which Federal Immigration and Nationality Act  Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii) then  fined under title 18 of being imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both."

 

4. Introduce a new law that no longer gives bipartisan exemption from tax revenues, making everybody pay their fair share and even the 40 percent of the lowest of incomes that should mandatory pay a small amount.

 

5. The TEA PARTY LEADERSHIP to immediately press the Congress, to negotiate with Canada to run the Keystone pipeline. In addition grant access to Alaska, the Gulf of Mexico to drill for oil, natural gas and mine for coal, within a future that they provide research and development in cleaning these necessary products as a priority in future years.

6. The war in Afghanistan, fighting the Taliban for what anymore?  We must stop filling the pockets of government contractors and politicians with taxpayer money? After 10 years what have we accomplished? Nothing! Over 2000 American troops have given their lives, and we are sending 8 billions of dollars a month to a very corrupt government. Like most of the Middle East they are still living under archaic laws, where women have no rights.  It’s time to start ‘Nation Building’ at home and not in other countries.  Why we are policing the world, when our own country is held hostage to criminals entering America, through a border that in most places you can walk through some rusty barbed wire.  Where is American protection to stop financial migrants entering our nation and pilfering uncompensated state treasuries?

 

The Tea Party is essential to America surviving, as we have both parties spending billions of dollars on pet projects. This sovereign nation must get from under the thumb of progressives, communists and sewer Marxist Liberals. We have President Obama signing executive orders to give just about equal access to food stamps. That illegal immigration has been encouraged by both political parties for different reasons; the Democrats pressing for political pleasing laws, such as the Dream Act against the Congress and the hope that they will gain election impetus for more votes—from non citizens and illegal aliens, without looking towards the consequences in close races. Then Republicans who allow clandestinely over a million new immigrants a year, with low skilled experience and being supplied to corporations as slave labor.

 

The TEA PARTY is not receding, but growing faster than ever and not just in the millions anymore.  These are the demoralized people who can be counted in the millions, who will arrive at the election booth?  They are the hidden voters, the individuals who have never paid attention to voting? There are chapters all over the country, in towns, cities and from every racial preference, religion and political party who no longer trust Washington. The Liberal press can print what they like, but the TEA PARTY is here to stay.  President Obama and Mitt Romney had better take notice, because the TEA PARTY PEOPLE are sick and very tired of the greed, the influence and power grabs.

Illegal immigration is unsettling as it is dividing the country and is predictably in causing a major financial situation--without a solution? California, that boasts of two major Sanctuary cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles are costing taxpayers extraordinary amounts of money. Don’t take my word for it, but read a report by Michael D. Andronovich, Los Angeles County Supervisor who lays out a lengthy truth of the costs in this metropolis of 1.6 billion dollars annually, while the Nevada annual fiscal burden of immigration to be approximately $630 million. Then Arizona's illegal immigrant population is costing the state's taxpayers even more than once originally thought and now revised, to a whopping $2.7 billion a year.  It is estimated that U.S. taxpayers spend $12,000,000,000 a year on primary and secondary school education for the children of illegal immigrants.

 

 Each year, it costs the states billions of dollars to incarcerate illegal alien criminals and during one recent 23 year period, the state of California built 23 prisons but just one university. Texas has set their uncompensated cost for state services for an estimated 1.6 million illegal Mexican immigrants at $6 billion to $8 billion a year.  These are estimated dollar costs by different organizations and at most projections are limited to what the states release? However, one thing is for sure, the dollars spent on illegal immigrants rises annually as more impoverished persons skip the border. America once a bastion of ‘law and order’ has been overrun in many jurisdictions by foreign nationals, with the Socialist progressives in the Obama Imperial Court,  who have contempt for our laws, language and our constitutional foundation.

 

 As for New Mexico the costs to support illegal aliens remains doubtful and silent by the elected officials. Border agents are stating that there are a growing number of radical Muslims sneaking over the Mexican border into the United States. A number of state and local jurisdictions enacted immigration-enforcement measures in 2012 or fended off attempts by politicians and elected officials to accommodate illegal aliens. Alabama revised its enforcement law without extensively weakening it while Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and three local governments enacted enforcement laws. Colorado, Delaware, Indiana, Hawaii, Washington State and, so far, California taxpayers are denying illegal aliens the public benefits that advocates have demanded. WANT MORE STUNNING DETAILS ON THE COST AND OTHER INTELLIGENCE ON THE ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS—GO TO IMMIGRATIONCOUNTERS DOT COM.

 

Going after Sheriff Joe Arpaio for doing his job is a witch hunt and the larger majority is aware of this. It’s a way to gain favoritism for Obama’s potential reelection, so non citizen’s vote for him. Joe stands out along with Sheriff Babeu who neither runs with their tails between their legs as with most police chiefs.  It’s inevitable that the sheriff’s sweeps are going to detain people of a certain national status, because we have been silently invaded by a majority from South of our border; Arizona ground zero for every illegal alien who slips past the limited manpower at the non-existent fence. If outspoken politicians as Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama were not a powerhouse in Congress, he too would be on the Obama’s Dept of Justice short list for attack by the overconfident Liberal nutcases.

 

You want fairness for every American? Well you will not find it in Washington as it is now?  Join the dispirited, join the furious; join the desperate, join the TEA PARTY.  Get every person you know to vote into office every Constitutional candidate, as the Tea Party leader who will turn on the power and strengthen the resistance at the local level and the national level as well. Want to learn more about this ‘PEOPLE’S PARTY, then please go to TEA PARTY DOT ORG and you will be stunned with such unlawful acts as a covert agreements with Mexico, in offering food stamps to illegal migrants and immigrants. Want more information about corruption in Washington, and then go to Judicial Watch dot org. Then go to the largest pro-sovereignty organization that have boosted their membership to over a million and that is NumbersUSA.dot com.

I wonder if they will use the emails from Pearce they are talking about on channel 12.  After all, Pearce was not only Joe's butt buddy, but Pearce worked for Arpaio at MCSO at one time!!

Al Capone huh?

 

Is that why he mentioned Capone's "secret vault" when discussing his latest birther bullshit?

 

Hey Joe: Obama's Kenyan birth certificate doesn't exist. Just like the evidence in your bogus case against Judge Donahoe.

 

The plaintiffs will win this case hands down, and more than a million taxpayer dollars are wasted thanks to the Flaccid Fucknut of MCSO.
