Bill Montgomery's Islamaphobe Calls Local Reporters "Collaborators" Who Defend "Stealth Jihadis"

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

As I mentioned in my column this week, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery's Islamaphobic "expert," disgraced ex-FBI agent John Guandolo, recently accused Channel 12's Brahm Resnik and Fox 10's Mia Garcia of being "media collaborators," who "defend stealth jihadis." This, because of their coverage of Guandolo's coming to town on the taxpayer's dime.

Jeez, John-boy, what am I, chopped liver? I was the one who broke the story that you were coming to town, for cryin' out loud.

As Rodney Dangerfield was wont to say, "Death, where is thy sting?"

Guandolo, a serious wacko who thinks CIA director John Brennan is a secret Muslim, was recently flown to Tempe by Monty at public expense to lecture prosecutors and law enforcement officials on the "threat" posed by local mosques and practitioners of Islam.

Russell Pearce Lies, Hos Hoskins Spins

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

Recalled state Senate President Russell Pearce is one of those guys who can lie and then believe his lie, almost immediately after he's said it.

Problem is, he's a really bad liar. In fact, his lies remind me of that quote from the Old Testament, "Be sure your sin will find you out."

And like a boomerang, they always do, particularly in Pearce's case.

Bill Montgomery's Anti-Muslim Seminar Results in Threats to Muslims, ADL Criticizes Training, Phoenix PD Will Not Participate (w/Updates)

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

Please see the updates at the end of this post, which include comments from John Guandolo, the Phoenix Police Department, and the MCSO.

The backlash is building against Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery's upcoming anti-Muslim training session, featuring Islamaphobic ex-FBI agent John Guandolo, who believes that CIA Director John Brennan is a secret Muslim.

The Phoenix Police Department has confirmed to me that it will not be sending any representatives to the controversial, day-long seminar, which is being held at a Tempe hotel on Friday.

Other law enforcement agencies may be getting cold feet too, including the MCSO, but that remains unconfirmed at present. (Note: MCSO has since confirmed non-participation, please see updates below.)

The Arizona office of the Anti-Defamation League sent Montgomery a letter last week critical of Guandolo, though the ADL says Montgomery has yet to respond to the letter.

And most troubling, Guandolo's involvement in the training already may have resulted in threats against local Muslims and Mosques.

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

Maricopa County Treasurer Charles "Hos" Hoskins has issued a response over the controversy surrounding his continued employment of recalled former state Senate President President Russell Pearce, who recently resigned his post as First Vice Chair of the Arizona Republican Party, following his controversial remarks on the forced sterilization of female Medicaid recipients.

Today, Hoskins, who is under pressure to fire Pearce from Pearce's $85,000-per-year job, replied to some questions I recently submitted via e-mail. Hoskins cc'd other members of the media as well.

Russell Pearce Disses 47 Percent of Americans, Insults Legal Immigrants, Gets Ethnic Jokes from Working Buddies, All in County E-Mails

As he already has demonstrated through his vile comments on the forced sterilization of female Medicaid recipients, recalled ex-state Senator Russell Pearce has complete contempt for the poor.

The outrage over these remarks, made by Pearce on his weekly radio show, recently forced Pearce's resignation as first vice chair of the Arizona GOP.

But Pearce still has his $85,000-a-year gub'mint job working for fellow Republican and Maricopa County Treasurer Charles "Hos" Hoskins. And Pearce has no problem letting Hoskins know what he thinks of poor folk, as he did on September 2, via his county e-mail address.

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

It was DC London's Sean Noble that got the ball rolling on Saturday, calling on fellow Republican Russell Pearce to "resign or be removed" from his position as first vice chair of the state GOP. This, in the wake of Pearce's hateful comments on the forced sterilization of female Medicaid recipients.

Then came more Rs today, padding down the same river: Arizona Attorney General hopeful Mark Brnovich, GOP gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey, Congressional District 2 candidate Martha McSally, CD 1 Congressman-wannabe Andy Tobin.

Like Noble, McSally called for Pearce's resignation. The other candidates have not. Yet.

Sean Noble, GOP Strategist, Calls on Russell Pearce to Resign for His Remarks on the Coerced Sterilization of Women

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

Influential GOP strategist Sean Noble of the consulting firm DC London is calling on recalled, former state Senate President Russell Pearce to "resign or be removed" from his position as the Arizona GOP's first vice chair because of Pearce's remarks advocating the coerced sterilization of female Medicaid recipients.

"There's nothing conservative about [fascism]," Noble stated via his Twitter account on Saturday. "Pearce doesn't represent Republicans. He must resign or be removed."

Pearce's grotesque remarks came during one of his regular weekly radio broadcast on KKNT 960 AM, while he railed about government programs such as Medicaid.

"You put me in charge of Medicaid," Pearce told one caller, "the first thing I'd do is get [female recipients] Norplant, birth-control implants, or tubal ligations. Then, we'll test recipients for drugs and alcohol, and if you want to [reproduce] or use drugs or alcohol, then get a job."

Bill Montgomery's Anti-Muslim Instructor John Guandolo Calls for Indictment of ACLU for Writing a Letter (w/Updates)

Note: Please see update below.

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery's desperate attempt to gin up controversy and milk the just-passed anniversary of 9/11 by employing a controversial ex-FBI agent to teach cops and prosecutors about Muslim extremism has taken a wacky turn.

John Guandolo, the ex-FBI agent who reportedly left the bureau after admitting to an inappropriate sexual relationship with a confidential informant according to several outlets, fired back in his blog today against the ACLU of Arizona and local Muslim groups that are calling on Montgomery to cancel a scheduled a September 19 training session, in which Guandolo is a featured participant.
