Joe Arpaio's Pal Michael Nowakowski on Blast in Dennis Gilman's New Video "Negotiating with the Devil"

Gilman's latest rakes Nowakowski over the coals for his parley with El Diablo

Which side are you on?

The recall effort is underway, and even Sheriff Joe Arpaio's campaign guru Chad Willems has acknowledged that if the recall committee Respect Arizona scores the needed signatures for the ballot, then, "Joe Arpaio goes away."

I'll grant you that scoring more than 335,000 valid signatures by May 30 is a massive task, and solidarity is always a difficult thing to achieve, even in the best situations.

But all politicians, pastors and activists should all be on notice: While the recall effort is ongoing, and the Respect Arizona people are in the trenches, working their rears off to achieve their goals, no one should be parleying with the enemy.

No one. I don't care if you are executive vice president of the mighty Cesar Chavez Foundation, as Phoenix City Councilman Michael Nowakowski is.

In this campaign, titles do not matter.

So if you seek meetings with Arpaio and those in his camp, do deals with them, pose for photo ops, your behavior will be duly noted, and, to your shame, you will forever be reminded of it. Particularly if, as Willems fears, Arpaio falls.

You are either part of the problem or part of the solution. There is no middle ground. No compromise. No suing for peace on bent knee.

So people are mad at Arpaio upholding the law. Just bring out the babies crying. Just more tears my little ones. Keep crying and crying my dear. Sooner or later your dad will be able to rob a bank and your tears will let him go. So keep crying. 


This "Pastors" just sold their souls to the DEVIL, what kind of Pastors leads their congregation to the Slaughter House or allows SATAN in their Prayers, even worse; Pray for the DEVIL to change while having it in their midst. THEY SHOULD BE EXCOMMUNICATED. Specially "Pastor" Joe Garcia, that had the nerve to go on camera and speak about his encounter with SATAN. Fng Bullshit, so much for looking after their congregation. Or maybe I'm wrong andThey just needed a Picture of "SIMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL" hanging on a wall of Their Churches.

Like trying to make nice with a RATTLESNAKE.


The French had a word for people who did this:  collaborator.  You don't "foster a dialogue" with someone who abuses his power the way Arpaio has.  You don't "foster a dialogue" with someone who shamelessly abuses the community you purportedly represent for his own sick political agenda.  Nowakowski should be ashamed and should apologize, as should the "pastors" who participated.  This only gives Arpaio political cover to keep abusing his power.

Carramba chinga! What if Joe's goons raided Radio Campesina? Will Michael Nowakowski be in any mood to negotiate then?

I'll be honest, its nice that they wanted to hope Joe was wanting to change (delusional, but still nice that they thought he could change). all i can think of though is the old story about the scorpion getting a ride from a frog across the pond, the story ends with "I'm a scorpion, thats my nature" when he stings the frog. promise's come out of Joe's mouth all the time and the result is the same "He's a crookl! its in his nature to lie"

He is either naive, or just being a politician..i hope its not the latter. I have no problem trying to broker a truce, but the fact is joe just isnt interested in one. It doesnt help him at all...especially if you listen to the rhetoric and hateful mind set from the McCain meeting thats on loved the part about why we dont just have the military posted up on the borders...Yeah, cause that wouldnt be reminiscent of the Berlin Wall, or N Korea now would it...


@RJBigelow What a big man, making fun of crying kids behind your fucking computer. Fuck you, you racist POS.

I'm tired of having an incompetent, narcissistic sick old man masquerading as a law-enforcement official.

Prior to 2005 immigration wasn't even an issue for the MCSO shurf. Now he obsesses over it, at the cost of overlooking sex crimes.

So tell me: how is the Old Fool upholding the law?

@RJBigelow  actually a lot of those babies are crying because the elected official who is supposed to be upholding the law looks the other way for rape and molestation cases. they are called victims. nobody is mad at Arpaio for upholding the law, they are mad because he doesnt feel rape or child molestation really deserve any time or resources put into investigating or stopping them. he is also a firm believer that if people botch those cases they really shouldnt be held responsible for their incompetence. do you want a guy who cant investigate a rape (many of those cases came with the name of the offenders) to be investigating any other crimes? if he cant make an arrest in a gift wrapped case like that, how is he going to crack other cases? he isnt upholding the law, he's picking and choosing what laws he wants to uphold

Shadeaux, did you hear about the guy who bought 3 rattlesnakes and 2 copperhead snakes in Alabama and was gonna use them for an exorcism in Kentucky?

@eric.nelson745 That's probably what the "dialogue" was about Mejo!  Nowakowski, giving political favors in return for not getting his business raided.


@danzigsdaddy It's too bad that so many people in Maricopa Country are too stupid and bigoted to understand that.
