Joe Arpaio Doc Two Americans Rocks Harkins for One Week Only

twoamericans1.JPG
When this S.O.B. loses to Penzone, the first bottle of champagne is on me...

Word is, Sheriff Joe is freaking out. Republicans who have supported him for years are jumping ship to back his Democratic rival Paul Penzone. As a result, his poll numbers are consistently in the doldrums, under 50 percent.

He's been forced to buy up a load of local TV time to run a creepy, dishonest, anti-Penzone ad, while Penzone has gone all guerilla-warfare on the octogenarian autocrat, running radio spots on right-wing KFYI, appealing to Republicans.

Despite all of Joe's cash, despite going negative and sending out voter-suppression robocalls, despite 20 years as sheriff (or more likely, because of those 20 years), and in spite of a third-wheel stooge in the race who could pass for Patton Oswalt's senile dad, Arpaio is facing the very real possibility of forced exile to Fountain Hills, where his wife Ava has a backlog of honey-dos waiting for him.

By any margin, no matter how thin, victory for Penzone would be a massive thunderclap rolling across Arizona, and then the nation, signaling an end to two decades of Hugo Chavez-like tyranny in this county.

Which is why Two Americans is the film to see this weekend.

A documentary that's been years in the making by co-directors Daniel DeVivo and Valeria Fernandez, the film masterfully weaves together the story of a political opportunist and megalomaniac with that of Katherine Figueroa, a young girl, whose parents are arrested in one of Arpaio's immigrant-hunting sweeps.

Check out the trailer for Two Americans, then go see it while you can

A typical interview with the MCSO shurf

 

"Who is Adrian Cruz, and why did he walk out of MCSO custody?"

 

Joe: "I don't recall who Adrian Cruz is."

 

"Why did you spend $10K to send a sworn deputy to Hawaii to pander to the birthers?"

 

Joe: "I don't recall sending a sworn deputy to Hawaii to pander to the birthers or spending $10K."

 

"When did you arrest Elvis Presley?"

 

Joe: " I don't recall arresting Elvis Presley."

 

"What is your office doing about the 432 sex crimes that weren't investigated?"

 

Joe: "I don't recall no sex crimes being uninvestigated."

 

"Where did you arrest Elvis Presley?"

 

Joe: "I don't recall arresting Elvis Presley."

 

"How do you think you'll win this very tight race?"

 

Joe: "I don't recall winning this very tight race."

"You'll cheer and cry for Katherine as she speaks out for her parents and against Maricopa County's flaccid fool."

 

Mr. Lemons, congratulations for referring to the MCSO shurf as the Flaccid Fool.

 

Good for Katherine for speaking out against Maricopa County's Flaccid Fool. When Obama is re-elected the DREAM Act will pass, the MCSO shurf will be the FORMER MCSO shurf, etc.

i love how people say if you dont break the law you have nothing to fear from Arpaio. please explain that to the 432 sex crimes victims that he left uninvestigated. not only did he kick them to the wayside, he left many of them to be further victimized. and then when he made his lame ass apology to them...he tried to make it sound as if they werent even victims in the first place with his "If There Were Any Victims" comment. they didnt commit any crimes, so he should have been on top of those cases.

True patriot, to join arpayaso pose, you have to lick his ass first, then change his diaper for

some time, put some lard on his hair and comb it, kiss ava every time you see her, and then

he'll give you a tin foil hat to wear, after that wait for him to call.

I'm new to Arizona and I have a couple of questions. I've noticed that just about every other story in this newspaper is about Sheriff Joe Arpaio, so I thought that this might be a good place to ask. If I join Sheriff Joe's posse, will I have the opportunity to personally apprehend illegal aliens, or would I just get to report them and have an official deputy collar them? Are posse members allowed to carry weapons, handguns or otherwise, in case the illegal aliens refuse to comply with an order? If no weapons are allowed, would I be correct in assuming that the response to an unruly and non-compliant illegal alien would be a standard beat down until they assume a docile and submissive attitude? Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide.

Al Yazzie cuz I love to rant at you "Liberal Screws" most of you morons are just transplants from Cali and follow the "Californacation" lifestyle anyways....Native Arizonans, if you want to see a fu*ked up lawless & bankrupt state, full of crime, drugs, homeless, and illegals, spend a weekend there, trust me when I say California has an agenda, to turn AZ. into a Liberal Toilet!!!! (Oh and I use to follow the Newtimes, I even liked the publication "Music, Food and compelling Stories" , but now it seems that 25% or more of the rag is Porn or Ad's for Outcall Services) ....LMAO!

This country was founded by immigrants. I am over 50%  Cherokee. So maybe all the non native americans should go back to there own countries, and give us our land back!!!! Or, we can all live on this beautiful land as Americans.

I can't wait for Arpio to be done. he's cost the state so much from all the law suits he's cost the taxpayers and let's not forget the 400 cases of sex crimes he didn't bother to investigate. Although, he's just following the misogynistic and racist policies of the GOP.

Joe Arpaio needs to win. If you don't break the law you have nothing to fear from him. As a metal musician I am around a lot of less than on the up types of people and they all hate him..but they have all done time in tent city and broken the law and a lot of them despite the fact that they hate him learned not to cross that line because they had to pay the price. I dont know this penzone and im sure he's a nice guy and a qualified person for the job but if he does win he needs to stick to the game plan laid out by Joe because I know a lot of people that are planning to get back into crime thinking it's going to be open season if Joe is outed!

such a powerful film! and again, for all the wack jobs that are 'Joe Arpaio Fans" how the hell can they in good faith vote for someone who neglected to investigate over 432 sex crimes? Even if you are a racist douche who thinks what he is doing is correct, if you cast a vote for Arpaio, its like you're saying its ok that those men women children, some as young as two, were raped, molested and violated. Those people make me sick.

when I voted early for Joe, I did so with the expectation and desire that he will arrest more illegal mexicans and make the lives of their anchors harder. Joe's raids are a lot of fun, but just wait until we revisit the 14th for a proper interpretation. the enjoyment that we get now from comedies like the movie in this blog post will pale in comparison to the circus-like delights that we'll witness when the illegals' pregnancy paychecks are cut off.

Mr. "Jackass" Lemons, this is simply not true.  It's actually the other way around - Penzone supporters are now backing Arpaio.  Arpaio's poll numbers have risen and Penzone's have declined.  This article is another example of your yellow journalism

i find the title of this movie very misleading considering the subject of the 2 people it follows. technically it should be called "an american and an old nazi"  whats funny is, they did nothing at all to make joe look like a jackass in this movie. they were very impartial, HE made himself look the jackass in this movie, they didnt have to do a thing

 Holy Smoking Levi's, Batman!  You, "truepatriot" sound like you know an awful lot about Arpaio and Arizona.

 

But, if you really want to know about "volunteers" trying to enforce immigration laws, why don't you google "J. T. Ready" and see what kind of ignorant assholes want to chase around in the desert playing the 21st Century version of Cowboys and Indians.  It's called Lunatics and Mexicans.

 

My suggest would be that you leave enforcement to ICE and the Boarder Patrol so that you don't hurt yourself.  You sound like the type of person that has had a relative die moments after yellling "Hey, Y'all - watch this!"

 @truepatriot If you have to ask those questions in the media instead of going through the Sheriff's office you can't be serious.

 

I suppose if you think that is all the posse does then you forgot about the paid vacations to Hawaii.....

@truepatriot A docile and submissive attitude? That's what the Posse is looking for in applicants. More importantly, will you take one for Joe? In the end the Posse will have your 6. Oh yeah. Can you back up another deputy?

Remember Arizona:

 

A Vote for Arpaio is a vote for Child Rape!

 

Arpaio is no better than the Child Rapist's he intentionally IGNORED, and allowed to continue Raping Children for years even after being reported to Arpaio's M.C.S.O.

 @anchorsawaySo, it's your expectation that those who are in our country and undocumented; from Canada, Panama, Venezuela, Romania, African countries, and other continents; don't need to be arrested? Just the Mexicans? If you lived in Florida you would be cussing the Cubans and Haitians.

 

Your ignorance is showing, amigo.

 @anchorsaway "But just wait until we revisit the 14th Amendment for a proper interpretation."

 

The interpretation that has stood since 1898 is the correct one numbnuts. Keep in mind that decision was issued while the Supreme Court was stacked with all Republicans and a Republican President (William McKinley) was in office.

 

The Supreme Court has only reversed itself one time in U.S. history. And that was on the issue of the death penalty.

@anchorsaway Jan the Sea Hag waves her finger at Obama, scolds the Ferderal government for not doing it's job, and you racist baboons go nuts. Yet Arizona politicians HAVE THE CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY to crack down on employers that break the law BUT DON'T. Jan Brewer, Russell Pearce, Joe Arpaio, and all the others are just hypocritical sewer gas spouts. They look and smell like shit.

@anchorsaway I just checked Tom Hornedog's website. Still just 2 employers sanctioned. Since 2007. You shit for brains teabaggers are sure gullible.

jonnyquest
jonnyquest topcommenter

@anchorsaway My expectation of law enforcement is the enforcement of ALL laws. Why is it that AZ's Employer Sanctions Law passed in 2007 has only resulted in 2, that's TWO, employers being sanctioned? Hmmm? Check the State Attorney General's website. It has the list. If you want a cost effective way to reduce illegal immigration, ENFORCE THE FUCKING EMPLOYER SANCTIONS LAW. Joe and the rest of AZ's tea bagging polititions just talk shit to racist assholes like you, but protect business interests WHO HIRE illegal aliens!

 @JoeArpaioFan If this race were being held in the Old Fool's home state of Massachusetts, he'd lose. Badly. Just like he's doing now.

 

The MCSO shurf is like the Titanic. Slowly sinking and then quickly vanishing.

 @JoeArpaioFan the only numbers up for Arpaio are the numbers of lawsuits against him and the number of crimes he ignores in his quest to be an immigration officer

 @JoeArpaioFan 

 

No, it's another example of just how full of shit you are.

 

Penzones numbers are up, Arpaio's are down. Face facts.

 

Although it will be so fun to listen to you whine when your idol gets removed from office on Nov. 6th - will your lips still be glued to his butthole then?

 

Hey, I forgot, did you want to borrow that shovel you wanted so you can have a crack at my mom like you wanted?

 @wherewasi  @truepatriot I sure would like to know where J.T. Ready aquired the Six Rocket Proppelled Grenades/Weapons of Mass Destruction that he had at his Gilbert Arizona Home?

 

Any ideas on that Arpaio, or Deep Throat (aka Babeu.)?????

 

Sheriffs have acess to Military Gear, and J.T. was both Arpaio, and Deep Throats Vigilantee Pal?

 @narizona 

 

Agreed.

 

How long is the maximum post on PNT? :)

 

Couple of reasons

 

Age

 

The blue hairs that make up a significant part of our population here, still believe overtly in the might makes right attitude that we left WWI and WWII, Korea and Vietnam with. While we had cause to pat ourselves on the back over a few of those, it to be blunt, went to the populaces head. That then got pounded into the heads of their offspring with all the attendant misrepresentations and morphing of the story that always favors the victor

 

Especially when you look at factual history and realize that at least 2 of those conflicts I mention were entire bullshit, started by the US through pure deception of the US and world populace (I speak of Korea and Vietnam)

 

Lower population per sq. foot

 

Back east they get it in their face all the time how wacked they are since there are more people back east and therefore the sentiment is harder to ignore.There is a lot more push back.

 

Wild Wild West

 

This is still in many respects the wild west and a lot of people mistakenly think that means they can carve their own niche of outdated social values out of this 'frontier' - which actually could not be farther from the truth, since we (Arizonans) are not as "wild" as most of the country paints us
