Did Rick Perry Commit "Latino Political Suicide" By Buddyin' Up to Joe Arpaio?

According to the Tequila Party, Texas Governor Rick Perry just committed "Latino policitcal suicide."
According to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's ghost-"tweeters," the sheriff and presidential hopeful/Texas Governor Rick Perry chatted over the weekend about "immigration and other matters."

Again, that's according to the sheriff's Twitter page -- whether the alleged conversation actually took place has not yet been confirmed by Perry's campaign staff (Arpaio's got a bit of a history when it comes to misinterpreting casual conversation with policy discussion).

In somewhat related news, Arpaio recently appeared on the conservative radio show "Hair on Fire" with host Barbara Espinosa, and co-host/long-time Joe Arpaio butt-kisser Randy Pullen, to discuss -- amongst other things -- technology and "that guy" Scottsdale Lieutenant Mike Stauffer, his GOP primary opponent for sheriff in the 2012 election.

During the appearance, the sheriff bragged about his experience fighting illegal immigration, and mentioned how upset he is that immigration policy-makers don't consult him on border issues -- so, the sheriff must be lovin' the recent attention he's getting from GOP presidential candidates looking to appear tough on illegal immigration by cozyin' up to one of the country's most infamous border hawks.

DeeDee Blase, the feisty leader of the Tequila Party -- a non-partisan political group that focuses on Latino issues -- thinks Perry may have shot himself in the foot by buddyin' up to America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff."

She recently penned an article with the headline "Rick Perry committing Latino Political suicide in consulting with Joe Arpaio of Arizona."

In the piece, Blase argues -- as we did yesterday -- that Perry might not be as familiar with Arpaio's antics as those of us who witness his daily running of the MCSO. We cited Elvis-themed panty parties, and inmate coloring contests. Blase cites how the sheriff "makes fun of the mysterious Mexican deaths in his prisons," an issue that will obviously anger crucial Hispanic voters.

Each are issues a presidential candidate might want to take into account before (allegedly) asking Arpaio for political advice.

See Blase's piece here.

As we mentioned yesterday, we're still waiting for word from Perry's campaign that the candidate's alleged conversation with Arpaio actually took place. In the meantime, we want to know what you think: did Perry commit "latino political suicide" by seeking Arpaio's advice?

I'm totally against ILLEGAL immigrants. I want ALL benefits stopped immediately!  I want them out of our country, now.  I demand that American politicians, voted into office to represent American CITIZENS, enforce American laws, and borders; and, place the interests of American CITZENS above foreign nationals at all times. PERIOD!!!

It's only "political suicide" if the mainstream press picks it up and it costs him the primary or general election.  So there's really no way to tell yet - but we can sure _hope_.   

I don't understand Governor GoodHair's popularity - he makes Michelle Bachmann look Not Crazy and makes Bush look competent, and he's slicker and sleazier than a used car dealer.

Well, here I'm happy. I can't stand Perry and if Joe Arpaio's responsible for his political fortunes sinking with latino's that' makes me gratefull to the Sheriff yet again. Perry is a Mexican suck-up. He would do anything for latinos' amnesty, affirmative action, jobs, shoot, he' d give Texas back to Mexico. It's good to know the racit hispanic ethnic interest groups are so stupid, that they don't even know who's trying to help them reconquer the southwest---Senor Rick Perry.

Hmmm..you catch the 'debate' Bobby?

The way all of them hemmed and hawed around the very direct immigration question from the Telemundo reporter was priceless.  Bachmann did it not once, but twice...and still never answered the question.

Only two showed signs of sanity...Gingrich (surprisingly) and Huntsman.Of course, a sign of sanity amongst this group of GOP hopefuls will inevitably lead to the Teabagger extremists running them off.

Either way, all (except Bachmann) disavowed mass deportation.And, by all appearances, each one of them demonstrated their understanding of pissing off the Latino vote.

There are mild skirmishes between Rick Perry and Mitt Romney's race to theWhite House, with other contenders who seem to be slipping behind, except forMichelle Bachmann. This great lady and Herman Cain could change the poorlylegislated course of this country. Both have sincere involvement in stoppingthe illegal alien invasion. Both Tea Partier’s have excellent grades from NumbersUSA to halt the illegalalien occupation.  Perry specifically—notso much with Romney with a poor record on illegal immigration  None of America's problems will fade away ifthe Acorn group start spitting out their depraved lies and start their crusadeagain of intimidation and fraud as they have in the past.  Do we remember ACORN!  (Association ofCommunity Organizations for Reform Now) Of course we do? Has the criminalenterprise gone for good? No!

 

 

 

Even though they decided to disband theorganization and file for bankruptcy, they are back under new business namesDespite the November 2010 bankruptcy filing, and ACORN continues to operate.Project Vote and ACORN Housing, renamed Affordable Housing Centers of America,are still is business. According to "Subversion Inc.," ACORNofficials openly acknowledge the network is restructuring and will re-emergesoon in an effort to help re-elect President Obama in 2012. Obama has had an intimate and long-term associationwith the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (Acorn), thelargest radical group in the United States. The Motor Voter law was correctlyidentified as a catalyst of vote fraud and the crowning glory of ACORN.Absentee Ballots must be carefully scrutinized for forged signatures, as the Electoralprocess could end up a disaster.

You can uncover the ugly facts by just typing into Google "ROTTENACORN"May be most Americans are oblivious to this, but according to RottenAcorn,"Before “subprime” became a household word, ACORN waded into the mortgagemarket, supporting policies that helped lay the groundwork for the catastrophiclending collapse of 2008. Working with another activist group, the Center forResponsible Lending, ACORN lobbied legislators and banks to ensure that anyperson, regardless of credit history, income, or assets, would qualify for amortgage. They mastered the art of pressuring banks – often through radical andcontroversial methods – to provide subprime loans to all comers. It was many ofthese “toxic” loans that defaulted and sparked the subprime mortgagecrisis." It's a fact that by pressuring the banks to allow mortgages tothe lowest of income earners and illegal aliens, the whole real estate industrycame crashing down; leading to the largest foreclosure rate since the Savingsand loans debacle.

 

ACORN's state chapters now operate under assumed names such as Alliance ofCalifornians for Community Empowerment, New York Communities for Change,Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment, Texas Organizing Project andAction United (Pennsylvania). Acorn made a "Mockery" of every citizen’selectoral vote, using felons to canvass for votes."Judicial Watch"recently uncovered massive voter fraud by ACORN in Colorado, and ACORN settleda racketeering lawsuit in Ohio out of court last year and agreed to depart the state.After so many registration violations in Missouri (1986-2004 and 2008);Arkansas (1998); Indiana (2008); Florida (2009); Michigan (2004-2008); Minnesota (2008;New Mexico (2004-2008); Nevada (2004, 2008 and 2009); Ohio (2008); Pennsylvania(2004, 2008 and 2009); Texas (2008); Virginia (2004); Wisconsin (2004 and2008).

 

Within the present Democratic with Liberal party there is evidence on manyoccasions, that whoever votes--Legal or illegal doesn't matter.

Our only chance to survive this criminal enterprise that I foresee in evengreater fraudulent events in 2011 is for the federal government to oversee thevoting process or issue to every US citizen a national ID card.

 

 

Every State and county districtattorneys must be made to understand that registration and voting bynon-citizens are serious offenses against the fundamental principles of our dem­ocraticsystem and that such violations must be prosecuted.

 

 

1.     The Dept of Justice mustconduct an assessment of all state Drivers License Bureaus to establish whichones have policies in consigned preventing non-citizens who apply for driver'slicenses from register­ing to vote and then file enforcement measures againstany state that refuses to conform to this constraint.

 

2.     The voterregistration card should not be officially recognized to obtain a driver'slicense or employment.

 

 

3.     Make it known throughTV, radio or Internet that is a violation of both state and federal law formigrants or over stay immigrants who arenot citizens to vote in state and federal elections. These violations ineffect disenfranchise legiti­mate voters whose votes are watered down, and theymust be reduced.

 

4.. Election officers have an commitmentnot only to impose those laws, but also to execute registra­tion and election actionsthat do not allow those laws to be bypassed or disregarded--anything lessencourages disdain for the laws and the people’s election process. Laidbackenforcement of electoral laws permits persons who have not entered on Americansoil unlawfully. Foreign nationals, felons could potentially alter the conclusionof any closely contested races that influence how “The People” are governed.

 

My vote is going to whoever is the frontrunnerof the Tea Party, as well as my family, as both Democrats and Democrats hastheir own agenda's. Each administration has refused to build the real doublefence or enforce the 1986 Immigration Control and reform act. The TEA PARTYwill improve on both of these "Rules of Law" and stick like glue tothe contents of the U.S. Constitution. As In ArticleIV, Section 4. that states: The United States shall guarantee toevery State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protecteach of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or ofthe Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domesticViolence.

 

The flood of illegalworkers almost certainly constitutes an invasion. The TEA PARTY will table anyform of Amnesty or Immigration Reform and will apply the statutes in the 1986Simpson/Mazzoli with strict enforcement according to the bill. Any SanctuaryCity or State ordinances designed to cater to illegal aliens, will lose federalfunding and expect ICE sweeps in the future. E-Verify and "SecureCommunities" will no longer be a voluntary measure, but applied as amandate to every state. The TEA PARTY will amend the 14th Amendment, so 300.000children of illegal aliens can no longer get a foothold in America, to ransackthe people's welfare programs and public assistance.

 

All new laws will bedesigned to stop economic illegal aliens from the financial avalanche that ishappening now, which includes CHAIN MIGRATION. All visas will be decided on theskills and qualifications of the person who wishes to immigrate and unwelcomeillegal newcomers will be punished harshly for entry. Only the TEA PARTY willenforce our laws, as signified in the living US Constitution. The $113 Billiondollars illegally collected by the IRS to benefit illegal aliens must be endedfor good and not be further spiraling out of control because each governmentrefuses to enforce the laws.

 

As a postscript, thattomorrow President Obama is going to offer a speech on jobs in construction specificallyrepairing Bridges and highways.  We mustinsure illegal aliens are not employed by criminal contractors, who haveencourages this type of violation of our laws. Be a “whistleblower” if you find individuals, who seem suspicious inyour occupation and inform ICE or local police Department. Read all theincendiary newspaper and media articles at “American Patrol” that sendsthe Liberal propaganda activists slinking in dark corners. Lastly, learn of therot that has propagated in Washington and individual States at “JudicialWatch.”

My preference for Rick Perry' s suicide is that he stick a grenade in his mouth, pull the pin and quickly shove his head up Michelle Bachmann' s derriere.

I tell ya, it would be morning again in America.

But if he just goes for political suicide by Latino, I guess I'll take that too.

Don't believe ANY of it until it's validated by the 'other' side of the conversation.

You may recall when the MCSO media machine tweeted that the shurf had just had a meeting with the Vice President. It was later verified that the Old Bastard was in line and shook Mr. Biden's hand... thus the 'meeting'.

If we believe for even a NY minute that ANY presidential candidate sought out the Flaccid Fool, then WE, my friends, are indeed the fools they think us to be.

Apparently there is no room for journalism in the bias bus of James King.  Talk about “Stupid-Journalist Story” The only butt-kissing going on here is the Hispanic Butt-Kissing.

 Hispanics are U.S. Citizens too poohole. Maybe you feel that constitutional rights to don't extend to ALL citizens just because they happen to have a different color skin or speak a different primary language than English.  Or that it's okay to deny the protections against government abuse that our constitution provides to ALL citizens because they are hispanic.   You sir are a traitor.  The immigration laws are being enforce more now, under the Obama Administration, than ANY OTHER ADMINISTRATION BEFORE HIM.  MORE.  Yet you and your ilk won't recognize the efforts being put out to stop illegal immigration being conducted by the Obama administration.  Illegal immigration is WAY DOWN from the highs that were occurring during the REPUBLICAN administration and congress of the Bush administration.  Dems are doing something about illegal immigration and the republicants just talk about it.  I encourage you to read your constitution and history before you start lumping all hispanics in as illegal immigrants.  The vast majority of spanish speaking people in this country are U.S. citizens, not illegal immigrants.  They also vote.  And, god help them if they vote for republicans, cause that was the worst thing that could happen to this country.

The Constitution is clear on the matter of nationalization so perhaps you should take a look.  The first of many parts that addresses the issue is Article I Sec. 8 ph 3.   So are you saying you get to pick and chose which parts of the constitution we follow.  You sound like our President who thinks it is an out-dated document even though he swore an oath to uphold all its laws.  The key word here is ALL.

You mean like the endorsement of Peggy Neely by the Flaccid Fool and Mrs. Brewer?

If anything, their endorsements likely cost Mrs. Neely a place in the run-off. But, she made that bed and now she is amongst the unemployed in Arizona. I hear they are looking for housekeeping employees at a local motel. You know. one of those great jobs that 'illegals have stolen' from citizens.

I wonder if Mrs. Neely ("Jobs, jobs, jobs") has applied?

["....and mentioned how upset he is that immigration policy-makers don't consult him on border issues --"]

Does this tell us anything?

Yes, his media team just made this crap up and tweeted about it... hoping that no one would take the time to verify it.... and depending on the Sun City diaper demographic to just take it as 'FACT'....

It's not a "Latino Political Suicide", unless this can officially be confirmed by Perry's campaign staffers. So in the meantime, this is all hyperbolish nonsense. But yeah, if it's true, then it's going to be a problem with Perry. You are judged by the friends you keep(or even choose).

Eleanor

Remember, Joe Arpaio always picks and chooses what laws he chooses to inforce when it comes to immigration.

I think that if he is asking for his advice that he probably did.

If he was just clueless about all the antics and just calling the person who should be in charge of the MCSO then it would all depend on where it goes after he becomes aware of Arpaio.

That's my opinion anyway.

I agree, if Perry actually did struck up a convo with our senile geriatric gendarme. I will automatically presume that Perry will quickly come to realize how dumb our Shurf is. It takes a moment of his spare time, to recognize this. Bill Monty and others who had previous conversations with arpaio, all(secretely) agreed our Shurf is stupid.

I hope Perry realizes this too.

Go Joe!

Perry wants it both ways and it would be my guess after his meet with Joe he pandered extra hard for the Hispanic vote by throwing more Americans under the bus which seems to be the politics of the day.  This country is under seige by southern Hispanics and they are distroying this country. 70% of the American people want our immigration laws enforced.  Other then a good head of hair Perry has nothing to offer.  He is just another rich oil guy that could care less about what is good for this country.  The fact is the Southern Hispanics are lawless people that come from lawless countries and will break any law that stands in their way.

americanpiehole, 40-50% of illegals in the country today got here with a valid visa (i.e. the 9/11 thugs). What will happen if ol' Joe dosen't make it out of the primary, or gets lit up by the feds for mis-appropriation of public funds? Careful who you vote for. peace

You really need to stay on AzCentral where some of those who read your words of wit, eat those little balls of stuff you feed them.

We at NT are much too well read and sophisticated to buy your baloney.

Put you teeth back in. Adjust your undergarments. Now, go seek out an audience with your hero, the MCSO Shurf, and have your photo taken with him and his plastic pistol tie tack and both of you will sleep better tonight in your make believe bubble you live in.

See what I mean when I say that most CONservatives "values" are based in their Fear Du Jour.A-piehole's fear is of "Southern Hispanics."

You know, they're the ones who say Adios Y"all.

Just another person with full deck of race cards.

For all you card carrying racist out there let me try to clear up this race nonsense.  This issue of Illegal Aliens has nothing to do with race but as I said before, for the Hispanics it is all about race.   If it were Travelocity Gnomes that were invading our country I would have the same problem but these invaders happen to be Southern Hispanics.  I love all peoples of the world. I even love the Jews but if they tried to come in here without permission by the millions, threaten our security, take our jobs, depress the wage, steal our education, burden our resources, and break laws on all levels, avoid taxes I would have the same problem and I would likely be called anti-Semitic which would not be true because ethnicity is not the problem.    Invading Illegal Aliens is the problem.

Sherrif Joe is one of a few law enforcement individuals who understands a simple fact: "illegal immigrant" = an individual who is not in the United States legally. Being that the "illegal immigrant has broken our Federal Immigration Laws and entered the United States through illegal means, he / she is subject to a crime and as such, he / she is subject to deportation. Is that difficult to understand?
