Jan Brewer Says Alaska Trip is Her "First Vacation" Since Becoming Governor -- Which is a Lie

www.legaljuice.com
We regret to inform you that we nearly let Governor Jan Brewer get away with one.

Since our earlier post about the governor's vacation to Alaska, which she claims is her "first vacation in over two years as Governor," we were reminded of a story we published last May. That story, contrary to the governor's claims in Twitter-town this week, was also about Brewer's "first vacation" since becoming governor.

See that story here.

In other words, Jan's lyin'.

Last May, in the middle of defending SB 1070 to the national media, pimping her one-cent sales-tax increase, and trying to get herself elected governor, Jan took a week off.

For an entire week, Brewer had no public events scheduled, and her office said the governor was taking a vacation. That vacation, too, was billed as Brewer's first vacation since becoming governor.

In her defense, Brewer didn't leave the state for that vacation, but this is hardly the first time Jan's had some downtime since taking office -- despite what she seems to want the public to believe.

We've got no qualms with Brewer going on vacation. In fact, we encourage it -- the less time she spends in Phoenix, the better. We just keep our fingers crossed in hopes that one of Brewer's vacations becomes a permanent vacation.

Isn't there plenty of nice vacation spots in the Great State of Arizona rather than spend taxpayer money to fly the Governor to and from Alaska along with her entourage. I guess Arizona has a budget crises only when it doesn't involve her using the taxpayers dime to fly her around the country.

Wouldn't that be grand if Brewer took a permanent vacation. We all know she is a liar and has been from day one. I haven't had a vacation either for over two years with the reason being I have been unemployed for over two years. It is a job looking for a job with no vacations allowed. Thanks a lot Governor. You are too slow in helping the unemployed in Arizona.

I was wondering after watching her picture...Does her husband make her sleep in the attic hanging upside down from the rafters ?

"We just keep our fingers crossed in hopes that one of Brewer's vacations becomes a permanent vacation."

This, and many other comments in this thread make me think we need to open up the Institute for Political Civility right away! Jan is an annoyance, but do we really need this kind of talk?

"We just keep our fingers crossed in hopes that one of Brewer's vacations becomes a permanent vacation from Arizona."

There. All better!

The public is still not aware of her medical condition. She needs to retire not take vacation in our expense. Jan Brewer make sure you dont bill the State with STATE issued CREDIT CARD. Remember we are in a deficit....1. something billion.

P.S. You need a MAJOR FACELIFT....................

This is just a big misunderstanding. This is the first vacation she has did since being elected governor. She hasn't went anywhere on vacation before, until there but for the grace of god went she. This was just the first one she could think of off the top of her hat.

Our Class West Associates, with the "ASU For Liberty" team in the lead, have been trying to link Brewer, Joe Arpaio, Russell Pearce to the theft of the global settlement funds. It's a biggie, and we mean real biggie. Take a look at http://wtsnb.blogspot.com:

To AMBASSADOR LEE EMIL WANTA (somam@prodigy.net), DR. JAMES DAVID MANNING (atlah1@aol.com) of www.ATLAH.org, and THE WORLD PRESS: These are opinions based on known facts. PLEASE INVESTIGATE AND MAKE THIS GO GLOBALLY VIRAL. THANK YOU. ARIZONA's GOVERNOR JAN "The Cabal Cowgirl" BREWER knows all about those stolen TRILLIONS in THE WANTAGATE FRAUD now being exposed at http://wtsnb.blogspot.com . .That's how she defended the losing SB 1070 with $1.5 million from her CUT OF THE SLUSH FUNDS. Please see http://www.azcentral.com/news/... Regarding this message, HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER (SpeakerBoehner@mail.house.gov) is one of the many corrupt AMERICAN OFFICIALS who is/are laundering milions/billions of dollars in VATICAN BANK and other "slush funds." He's getting a copy of this and won't respond. We have gotten word that corrupt ARIZONA STATE SENATOR RUSSELL "1070" PEARCE and his cronies are further victimizingARIZONA residents with costly, frivolous, malicious, and unconstitutional state anti-immigration legislation designed as a "ruse" to make it appear that they are protecting AMERICA. These laws are clearly designed to harass and badger the "little guys/gals," while ignoring the drophouse and crime property owners, and the many employers of slave labor in ARIZONA. PEARCE also has ulterior motives, because he was reportedly shot by a Mexican national in the past. Please confirm. PEARCE, ARPAIO, BREWER, and many others in ARIZONA and NATIONWIDE are criminally-complicit in the theft and cover-up of the WANTAGATE THEFT OF TRILLIONS, now being exposed globally at http://wtsnb.blogspot.com . . PEARCE, ARPAIO, BREWER, and their corrupt thugs appear to be doing the bidding of alcoholic billionaire RICHARD MELLON SCAIFE, a criminally-corrupt PENNSYLVANIA newspaper mogul who also is conspiring with www.JudicialWatch.org "President" TOM FITTON at tfitton@judicalwatch.org . Obviously these lowlives are also taking orders from CIA MURDERER and THIEF GEORGE BUSH, SENIOR. WANTAGATE thief SARAH PALIN is also working behind the scenes in ARIZONA, and now is using her daughter BRISTOL as a front line "soldier" in the desert, where BRISTOL recently purchased a foreclosed home. SARAH PALIN also recently exerted undue influence on a local Phoenix FM radio station in an attempt to get the thoroughly unqualified BRISTOL hired as a "disc jockey" or "talk show" host. Please, we've been tortured enough. These losers are ACTIVELY committing MISPRISION OF FELONY and MISPRISION OF TREASON by covering up SOETORO/OBAMA and GEORGE BUSH, SENIOR's conspiracy against AMERICA as described in the attached HODGES LETTER. They are also complicit in the ongoing global theft, concealment, laundering,and reinvestment of the TRILLIONS IN YOUR GLOBAL SETTLEMENT FUNDS that belong to "We The People." We ask that you consider these matters and invoke whatever international, federal, and local resources and intelligence you have to arrest and prosecute JAN BREWER, RUSSELL PEARCE, JOE ARPAIO, and many other corrupt ARIZONA politicos who threaten AMERICA. The DANIEL DAL BOSCO and VATICAN BANK RICO indictment and associated lawsuit may incriminate many AMERICAN and FOREIGN officials and businesspeople in the WANTAGATE crimes. Legal action has been commenced in ROME and we are regularly sending information and evidence to the INTERNATIONAL COURT OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROSECUTERS at THE HAGUE. . Thank you for your assistance.

An open letter to Governor Jan "Have Did" Brewer.

Dear Jan:

I read that you are going on vacation to Sarah Palin's Alaska. That's great and all, but I'd really wish you'd take a one-way trip to some country with a non-extradition treaty. Like Myanmar. Or Libya.

When you do this, you must take with you the following state and county officials:

1) Russell Pearce. Arizona's Senate President intends to sink the state faster than the Titanic with his brown-bashing, bullshit legislation (which we know for fact you'd sign). He also banishes Arizonans from meeting with their legislators in the state Senate building because they are clapping too loud.

2) Scott Bundgaard: Arizona's Senate Majority Leader is truly a slimy toad when he and his now ex-girlfriend get into a physical confrontation on AZ51 in Phoenix, then pulls the "I'm a state senator in session, therefore I'm immune to arrest" card. His now ex-girlfriend gets hauled off to 4th Avenue and he goes home. I wonder how much Ms. Ballard will sue us for?

3) Joe Arpaio: Maricopa County's rogue and corrupt "lawman" (if you can even call him that) has cost taxpayers $43 million in lawsuit payouts and judgments, and has gotten us sued for $59 million more. (in the event no one read today's Arizona Republic, Lisa Randall, the woman who was accused of murder and was exonerated, filed a notice of claim for $12.6 million. The number $59 million reflects her claim.) He also is subject to numerous inquiries, and a grand-jury investigation into abuse of power.

4) David Hendershott: The Flaccid Fool's second-in-command is responsible for the largest meltdown of county government in history. He is also resposible for all these claim notices. Hendy himself has filed $28 million in notice of claims, crying that he can't sleep at night because his health is suffering and because he was enforcing the law.

5) Joel Fox: This greasy Hendy associate is responsible for the SCA scandal, in which half a dozen MCSO officers, including Hendy, contributed heavily to a secret bank account which was used to vilify the MCSO shurf's opponent in the 2008 election, Dan Saban. It was uncovered as of March 2010 that Fox rolled on Hendy in the SCA scandal in a half-assed attempt to cover his own sorry ass from an indictment and perp-walk.

6) Louie Puroll: The controversial former PCSO deputy who claimed he was shot by illegals in the Vekol Valley along the I-8 near Gila Bend caused even more controversy for himself when he threatened New Times reporter Paul Rubin with a threat to off Rubin for writing and publishing the truth about what happened that April day in the Vekol Valley.

7) Paul Babeu: The Pinal County sheriff just raised some eyebrows in his county when he approached state House Speaker Kirk Adams and asked for $5 million so he could create an anti-smuggling unit for the PCSO. He also has drawn ire when he botched the Puroll investigation by sending the former deputy's shirt to DPS well after the fictitious shooting. Lately he has been deep in his good buddy the MCSO shurf's pocket.

8)Andrew Thomas: Maricopa County's mentally unstable former county attorney is responsible for helping create the county's meltdown by suing his political opponents, judges, and senior county management in a federal RICO lawsuit alleging a conspiracy to block his investigation into a court tower. He also drew much ire when he filed three felony charges against sitting Superior Court Judge Gary Donahoe. he has filed notices of claim alleging that Arizona voters HAD to elect him attorney general (I thought this was a democracy. I voted for Rotellini), that he stood up to corruption in Maricopa County (Taken a look in the mirror lately Andy? You'd be staring corruption in the face) and that he did the right thing as county attorney (Filing empty felony charges against Judge Donahoe drew you no fans. Kudos to Mr. Horne for stopping you.)

9) Lisa Aubuchon: The architect behind the whole meltdown of county government. She has deluded herself into believing that all the parties she and Andy charged are guilty and that they will not win their lawsuits against the county. It's known that she told an MCSO officer to author a search warrant with creative writng, failed to stop a grand-jury investigation, tried to indict a host of county officials, including Judge Donahoe, and, most recently, tried, and failed, to get her job back at the MCAO. She has filed $45 million in notices of claim alleging that she can't start a law practice (Gee I wonder why that is. Anyone?) that her health has been damaged (so has our health. Our financial health), and that she was just doing her job (yeah, right).

10) Rachel Alexander: Former deputy county attorney known for blogging and not doing much else, except playing pocket pool with her former boss, Candy Ass Thomas. She tried to draw out the bullshit RICO lawsuit, though she knew it was as doomed as the Titanic. She currently is facing a suspension of her law license. Maybe Phillips & Associates can hire you, Rachel.

11) Fulton Brock: The Maricopa County supervisor was just busted by disgraced former deputy county attorney Jack MacIntyre for bringing his estranged wife (she had a three year ssexual relationship with a 14 year old boy) food from home, and he is an avid supporter of the Flaccid Fool's policies, even though he helps decide whether or not to settle lawsuit claims whenever his hero, the MCSO shurf, gets us sued. he poses too much of a conflict of interest to actually do his job.

12) Jack MacIntyre: This disgraced former deputy county attorney now works for the MCSO and is an overall cretin. He recently busted Fulton for bringing food in to the death camps known as the Flaccid Fool's jails. Hey Jack, go into private practice. Oh wait, I forgot, you're too loyal to your diaper-wearing boss, the MCSO shurf....

13) Brian Sands: Pretends to be a tough guy (my drill sergeants in boot camp for the Army were more intimidating) and recently busted 26 people for "a class 4 felony" when he and his boss, the Old Balloon Head, claim 121 "victims" at a raid at 4 Pei Wei restaurants. The only class 4 felony I see is keeping people like Sands and the shurf at MCSO.

Please take the above-mentioned cretins with you on a one-way trip outta Arizona. You people are ruining our state.

Sincerely,

XSoldier

What's the difference if she is on vacation for 52 weeks? Pruney is essentially irrelevant. Pearce runs the State anyway, and all other Republicans kowtow to him.

Mr. King,

This is actually her third vacation as Arizona's Governor. I think you have forgotten the vacation that she took during her introductory comments in the debate with Goddard.

I would expect some spin in response where they say this is the first vacation since "being elected as Governor." Of course, this is not what she said.

Living up to the title "GED Jan."

She's probably going up there for a secret SCA meeting with the criminals from MCSO.

I agree with James King. Having that Leatherface Sock-Puppet Gov. of ours on vacation is a good thing. This reminds me of one old song from my H.S. daze came up for this one:

"Vacation to Violation" by Total Chaos.

That way, he can get more done in screwing up AZ without having to help her by putting words in her mouth.

Seriously, I thought Jan had been on vacation for like the last month or so. If not, it means she has been holed up on the 9th floor cowering like a mouse as Russell Pearce and Ron Gould introduce and promote bizzarro bill after bill. It's gotta be her worst nightmare that she might have to actually stand up on her two hind legs and veto some of these garbage bills before they cause Arizona more harm than SB1070 ever did. She was clearly caught off guard by the extent of the negative publicity garnered around the country by 1070 and she spent months trying to defend them and at the same time tell the nation don't worry, we're okay here in AZ so come spend your money. Pearce tried many of these same bills including 1070 while Napolitano was gov but she vetoed many and AZ never was revealed to the country for what it is. Janet also had enough balls to tell the legislature what was never going to fly and it resulted in saving a lot of time and grief. I have not heard word one from Jan "Deer in the Headlights" Brewer about where she stands on the assault on birthright citizenship, forcing guns on campus and public building, forcing schools and hospitals to become immigration agents, etc. She has either been on vacation since the end of January or she is a ##$&% coward!
