Trump Calls for Full Transparency in Maricopa County Audit

See the source image

Newsmax.com reports that

Former President Donald Trump says Maricopa County’s refusal to allow full transparency amid the 2020 presidential election audit makes him skeptical once again, suggesting that county election officials have something to hide.

“Why won’t the RINO Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in Arizona give the routers?” Trump asked in a statement Monday from his Save America PAC. “What are they trying to hide? They are fighting for life or death. What is going on?”

The latest request for information involves auditors requesting routers from the county for inspection.

“Give the routers!” Trump’s statement continued. “Doesn’t this mean that the voting was, despite their statements to the contrary, connected to the Internet? The voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election was monumental, and the facts are coming out daily!”

The Republican-held Arizona Senate originally subpoenaed the internet routers from the county polling places, but the county rejected the request, claiming it would cost $6 million to replace them. A similar claim led Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs to destroy voting machines that were inspected by auditors.

Officials skeptical of election fraud argued that Hobbs’ claim the voting machines could be compromised by auditors is evidence they are indeed vulnerable to tampering. The voting machines audited would not be used in future elections, Hobbs said, but Arizona Republicans noted they would have been subjected to the inspection and certification process in place in the state.

Also, with respect to the routers subpoena, Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone has said law enforcement security would have been jeopardized, the Arizona Mirror reported.

Auditors argue the routers are critical to finishing a complete report on election vulnerabilities, but Maricopa County election officials say the voting machines were not connected to the internet.

According to CyFir CEO Ben Cotton, one of the subcontractors doing the audit, submitting the routers for inspection would not compromise security, according to the Mirror.

The 2020 Presidential Election is the story that would not go away.

The number of states who are announcing that they are calling for an audit of the votes in the November 3rd Election, which saw a outcome which could only be described as “highly suspect” at best, continues to grow, as the obviously reality of the incompetency and unpopularity of Joe Biden becomes clearer every day.

The Political Swamp, the faceless bureaucrats who control Washington Politics behind the scenes, have extended their control into not just state governments but municipal governments as well, thanks to puppet masters like George Soros

Trying to investigate the mass fraud which occurred in the 2020 Presidential Election and the widespread corruption behind it is like wading through quicksand.

One false move and the investigators risk being “swallowed up” politically…never to be seen again.

For example, I have been watching the “Old Guard ” of the Republican Party appear on Fox News and Newsmax, saying that they are going to fighting against what the Democrats are trying to do to our country.

If they are speaking the truth, they why are they not openly calling for audits in all of the states that stopped counting votes in the middle of the night of November 3rd?

Former President Trump showed y’all how to win and a lot of you “Establishment Republicans” furthered your political career by riding his coat tails to positions of power on Capitol Hill.

Y’all want to go back to your political strategy of of reaching across the aisle (i.e. sucking up) to the Democrats and allowing them to pass whatever cockamamie laws they want to while they raises our taxes and the amount we pay for gas to fill up our cars so that we can go to work and provide for our families.

That is how we got stuck with Former President Barack Hussein Obama, aka “Petulant President Pantywaist”.

If the Republican Establishment keeps mooning average Americans and showcasing their Spines of Jello, instead of supporting the wishes of those who sent them to Capitol Hill and fight back, including investigating the 2020 Election, average Americans are liable to show them what they think of them by starting a new party behind Donald J. Trump.

However, I am beginning to believe that the Vichy Republicans. for all of their bluster, could care less.

As it has  proven, without a doubt in the past, the Republican Establishment’s arrogance will be their undoing.

After all…

Actions (and Inactions) have consequences.

The American people are tired of Political Correctness and anti-American political expediencies being forced down our throats by both political parties and trumpeted by their lackeys in the Main Stream Media.

Donald Trump, for all of his brashness and braggadocio, remains a breath of free air and, quite frankly an anomaly. He’s not a professional politician. He is a businessman who became a wonderful public servant.

Does Donald J. Trump need to “tone it down”, in terms of his fight against those who would preserve the Washingtonian Status Quo?

Only if he wants to sound like a Professional Politician.

And, we Americans have had our fill of them.

Until He Comes,

The Never-Ending 2018 Midterm Election is Why America Needs Voter I.D. Cards

fraud-wave-600a-cdn

FoxNews.com reports that

With razor-thin margins in multiple Florida races being recounted, dueling protests, lawsuits, and unfounded allegations captured the confusion, frustration and all-out anger brewing in Broward County on Monday.

Florida has been back middle of a familiar nightmare after a recount was ordered in three races. Florida law mandates that any election decided by 0.5 percent or less will trigger a recount. Three in the Sunshine State fit the bill – with two being in the national spotlight.

The Senate race is perhaps the most contentious. Republican challenger Gov. Rick Scott declared victory Tuesday night, but incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson never conceded the race. According to the Florida Division of Elections’ website, total votes show Scott with 50.07 percent of the ballots counted to Nelson’s 49.92 percent.

In the governor’s race, unofficial results show that Republican former Rep. Ron DeSantis led Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum by 0.41 percentage points.

Officials here spent much of the day rushing to catch up to Miami-Dade County following a Sunday glitch – a machine wasn’t registering all the ballots when it was tested – that delayed the recount process by about three hours.

By mid-afternoon Monday, Miami-Dade was about halfway through their recount process while Broward was just getting started. Much of the blame fell on the shoulders of Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes, who has a history of election missteps that even her supporters labeled amateurish at best.

Protesters carried signs that read, “Corrupt Snipes!!! Lock Her Up!,” “Busted Brenda” and “I trust (Michael) Avenatti more than Brenda!” while shouting at election officials, counter-protesters and the news media.

“Brenda needs to be fired! She needs to go! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” screamed Lois Healy, a New Jersey retiree living in southern Florida. “She can’t hide from us! I hate that woman.”

Another yelled into a bullhorn, “Supervisor of corruption! Show your face!”

Several others Fox News spoke to demanded Snipes, a Talladega, Alabama, native who has lived in Florida since 1964, be fired. A few went a step further and said she should be indicted.

“She needs to go,” one man wearing a Trump T-shirt said. The president has himself said Snipes “has had a horrible history.” President Trump also weighed in on the recount Monday, urging the state to go with election night results and called the ballots in question “massively infected” but did not provide any details.

The Snipes debate seemed to saturate much of the conversation in Broward, spilling out onto the streets near downtown Fort Lauderdale.

“I don’t care about her past,” Robyn White told Fox News. “Every vote needs to be counted. Every single one. Those people (protesting) – God bless them, but no.”

Over at the courthouse, lawyers on behalf of candidates duked it as the demands and lawsuits piled up. Nelson called on Scott to recuse himself from having anything to do with the recount. The incumbent senator did score a win after Circuit Chief Judge Jack Tuter said he saw no wrongdoing in the vote-counting and denied Scott’s request to seize voting machines. Though Tuter asked both sides to “ramp down the rhetoric” to reassure citizens that the integrity of the recount is being protected, that didn’t seem to sway many people.

There were other troubling signs about the recount Monday.

The Miami Herald reported that an election official in Bay County said he allowed some displaced voters to cast ballots by email or fax though there are no rules that allow for it in state law.

Bay County Supervisor of Elections Mark Andersen told the newspaper he accepted 11 ballots by email and 147 by fax – something that’s only allowed for voters overseas. It is unclear what the fallout – if any – will be from the admission.

Andersen said that the email and faxed ballots were verified by signature and that voters were required to sign an oath before submitting the documents.

“If I can validate it with a signature, the ballot is there, how is that different than a ballot that comes in through the post office?”

And as the state scrambles to meet its Thursday recount deadline, it’s also dealing with unfounded allegations that a box of Broward County ballots was found at the Fort Lauderdale airport Sunday night.

What a mess.

The country hasn’t seen this much corruption in one county since…well, since Broward Country attempted voter fraud in 2016 and, before that, in 2000 with Bush vs. Gore and the “hanging chads”.

Before Trump was president, Republicans brought up the subject of required Voter Identification in order for American Citizens to exercise their Constitutional Right to Vote.

Of course, the Democrats hollered that it was some sort of Civil Rights Violation, which made every sane person in the country scratch their heads while wondering what the Dems were smoking.

Heck, the Democrat’s lawyers who were sent down to Broward County to “clear up” this fiasco want illegal aliens’ votes counted!

What the heck were illegals doing voting in an American Midterm Election?

The Democrats’ quest for more voters to support their minority political ideology transcends such “passe” concepts as right and wrong, legal and illegal.

And, that is their reasoning when it comes to giving those who have broken into our country the same rights as law-abiding citizens, including the right to vote in American Elections.

Looking at the political shenanigans going on in Arizona, Georgia, and Florida, do you now understand why the Democrats have fought against Voter I.D. Cards so ferociously?

A Voter I.D. would spoil the plans of the Democratic Party Leadership.

Remember, their Chairman is a Hispanic Political Activist.

In my state, even if you cannot drive, you can still get a state identification.

There is nothing to it and it comes in useful for all sorts of things where you need an I.D., even purchasing a cellphone and service plan.

Trump is absolutely right.

I.D.’s are a part of the overwhelming majority of Americans’ everyday lives.

The only reason to intentionally not carry one would be if you do not want to be identified because you’re breaking the law in some form or fashion…such as being in this Sovereign Nation illegally.

The right to vote in American Elections should remain as it always has been: a right enjoyed by American Citizens Only.

Allowing illegals to vote is rewarding them for not having enough respect for America to enter our country in a legal manner.

It is the wrong thing to do….just like “finding votes” after the election is.

What is happening in Broward County and Georgia, and the conclusion of the Arizona Senate Race is simply WRONG.

It is something that one would expect in a Third World Socialist Country like Venezuela…not the United States of America.

This needs to be dealt with and stopped now…for the sake of our Constitutional Republic

The Trump Protests: The Tyranny of the Minority = The Intolerance of the Left

demonstrators-protestOverestimation of the popularity of one’s Political Belief System has been a staple of those who claim to be “the most tolerant among us”, the Modern American Liberal.

Yesterday, they proved that both claims are a blatant lie.

CBS News reports that

Protesters demonstrating against Donald Trump blocked the streets outside Trump’s Arizona rally Saturday, making good on earlier promises to disrupt the GOP front-runner during his visit to the border state.

The activists, carrying signs that declared “Dump Trump” and “United Against Hate,” shut down a main Arizona highway leading to the city of Fountain Hills, where Trump held a campaign event Saturday afternoon.

Protesters in cars and on foot encountered Maricopa County police during the demonstrations. Local media reported that some activists chained themselves to their cars in order to delay the towing of vehicles.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the controversial tough-on-immigration head of the Maricopa police who has pledged to provide security for the Trump event, said Saturday that his officers were working on the protests.

“We’re taking proper action,” Arpaio told MSNBC in a phone interview as the demonstrations continued. “I think a few cars are blocking the road… and we are removing the cars. Anybody that violates the law is going to jail.”

“My main mission is to take care of the safety, security of Trump plus everybody else that lives in that town,” the sheriff added.

Arpaio, who has given Trump his endorsement, took the stage before the billionaire businessman at the rally. He announced that at least three people had been arrested from the protests.

When Trump spoke at his campaign event, he only touched briefly on immigration in his opening remarks, slamming politicians for being “all talk, no action” on the issue.

“They’re never going to do anything,” Trump told supporters. “This country has a big big problem with illegal immigration.”

Trump, who has made erecting a border wall a cornerstone of his presidential campaign, has drawn increasing fire over his contentious rhetoric on illegal immigration during the past month.

Earlier this week, one leading pro-immigration-rights group, Puente Arizona, denounced Trump as a “racist” and organized the border state protests via Facebook. Several thousand users indicated on the social media site that they would attend the demonstrations, scheduled just days before Arizona’s primary contests on Tuesday.

While that was going on in Arizona, both paid and unpaid protestors marched to Trump Tower in New York City, per the CBS Local Affiliate…

Several hundred demonstrators gathered in Manhattan on Saturday to protest Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, marching from one skyscraper that bears his name to another.

The protesters, that included immigrants’ rights activists, students and socialists, gathered in Columbus Circle near the Trump International Hotel and Tower. They then marched across Central Park South to Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue where Trump lives before returning to Columbus Circle for a rally.

“I think Donald Trump is speaking a message of fascism and racism, and I don’t think that’s good for America,” said Laura Merrill, a tour guide who supports Democratic Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders for president. 

There was a heavy police presence for the largely peaceful protest, and officers used megaphones to warn demonstrators to stay on the sidewalk, out of the streets and not to impede foot traffic.

At least two protesters were arrested for walking in the street. A group of demonstrators that tried to break through a police barricade was pushed back by officers, who used pepper spray.

Protester Redentor Tarona, who marched as a member of a Filipino-American youth organization, said no one there wanted to promote violence.

Some protesters at the event told 1010 WINS’ Samantha Liebman that they couldn’t believe Trump has come this far in the election and that they believe his rhetoric is divisive and racist.

“We’re here because Donald Trump is the antithesis of what America stands for,” one Westchester man said.

“Donald Trump is a danger to America,” a man told WCBS 880’s John Metaxas. “If nobody stands up and be counted, our country’s democracy will be taken away from us.”

“We gotta make sure we get out and vote and make sure our voices are heard,” another protester from Manhattan said.

Demonstrators chanted “Donald Trump, go away, racist, sexist, anti-gay” and “Immigrants are welcome here. Don’t give in to racist fear.”

Others carried signs that read “Love Trumps Hate.” Another read “Will trade 1 Donald Trump for 25,000 refugees.”

According to a Gallup Poll, published on January 16th of this year, Conservatives are still the leading Political Ideology in America at 37%, followed closely by “self-described” Moderates at 35%. Liberals remain the Minority Political Ideology in America, comprising only 24% of our population.

That is why I call the actions of these insufferable idiots, like the ones on full display yesterday, “The Tyranny of the Minority”.

So, anyway, here we are…with a bunch of paid and unpaid “useful idiots” telling all of us normal Americans, living out here in the Heartland, how stupid and intolerant we are, for actually holding to Traditional American Values.

I have heard this garbage before.

Back in 2011, I got into a discussion on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website with some Cheetos-munching, Mom’s basement-dwelling Lib with no home training, who proceeded to tell me that he would be proud to defecate on the American Flag.

If I could have reached through my computer monitor and throttled that useless, ungrateful spoiled brat, I would have.

That “dude” was yet another example of the useful idiots of this present generation, such as Miley Cyrus, that seem to be garnering a lot of national attention for their outrageous, disrespectful…and, yes, intolerant, behavior.

Just as we have been bearing witness for the last couple of years, through the glorification of thugs and the vilifying of our local police departments by the Obama Administration and the local “communities” which they lay their lives on the line for, every day they put on their uniforms, the effects of LBJ’s “Great Society” on American Culture and the Black Family Unit, so are we witnessing, through the egocentric behavior of this present generation, what happens when children are left to “their own devices”, instead of being raised “in the way in which they should go”.

These “spoiled brats”, like their imperious President, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as they attempt to hold on to their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party, by trying to block Donald J. Trump’s pathway to the Presidency.

The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics”, including “Racial Rhetoric”, and Barack Hussein Obama’s own petulant, belligerent personality of a 12-year-old, has inspired these “protestors”, leading to a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression”.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including Trump, to speak our minds and be heard.

It gives those protestors that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, by strong-arming their way into Political Rallies, or by blocking access to them, for the expressed purpose of denying someone their First Amendment Rights.

That is called “INTOLERANCE”.

Until He Comes,

Obama releases 36,000 Criminals (Who Just Happen to Be Illegal Aliens)

ibamaillegalimmigration

When I turned on the news this morning, I was greeted with the image of President Barack Hussein Obama, pleading with Congress to pass Amnesty, in order to get people who “are our neighbors’ “out of the shadows”.

Heck, after you read the reasearch I’ve done, you will want to join me in Frog-Marching a bunch of the “noble men and women” back across the border.

On April 24, 2010, I wrote a Blog titled simply, “For Mr. Krentz”, detailing the murder of Arizona Rancher Robert Krentz by an illegal alien…

Police say Robert Krentz, whose family has been ranching in southern Arizona since 1907, was gunned down early Saturday morning, March 27th, 2010, by an illegal immigrant while out on his ATV tending to fences and water lines on the family’s 34,000-acre cattle ranch.

Reached by phone early Tuesday at his family’s ranch, Andy Krentz, Krentz’s oldest son, said his father was a churchgoing man who routinely went out of his way to help those in need.

“My father was a very good family man,” Krentz told FoxNews.com. “He supported his kids, supported his family. He went out of his way to help anybody we could without regarding to who they were.  It didn’t matter who they were.”

Sue Krentz, Krentz’s wife, said she was “pretty overwhelmed” by her husband’s death, which coincided with her parents’ deteriorating health.

“This is icing on the cake,” Krentz said.

Yes, it was.  The public outcry was deafening.

 Gov. Jan Brewer signed into law Friday, April 23rd, 2010, a bill supporters said would take handcuffs off police in dealing with illegal immigration in Arizona, the nation’s busiest gateway for human and drug smuggling from Mexico.With hundreds of protesters outside the state Capitol shouting that the bill would lead to civil rights abuses, Brewer said critics were “overreacting” and that she wouldn’t tolerate racial profiling.

“We in Arizona have been more than patient waiting for Washington to act,” Brewer said after signing the law. “But decades of inaction and misguided policy have created a dangerous and unacceptable situation.”

Thank you, Gov. Brewer.  I wish it had been earlier.  A  good man lost his life due to government neglience and political correctness.  So, what did the President of the United States say about this horrible situtation?  Did he comfort Mr. Krentz’s family?  Did he congratulate Arizona for cracking down on Illegal Immigration?  Are you kidding me?

“Our failure to act responsibly at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others,” Obama said at a Rose Garden naturalization ceremony for 24 members of the U.S. military. “That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona.”

The actions by the Arizona legislature threaten “to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans,” Obama said. It also may hamper trust between residents and law enforcement authorities, he said.

He said he has instructed U.S. authorities to monitor the state’s actions and to “examine the civil rights and other implications” of the legislation.

And, Obama and his Administration have fought every state which has tried to do something about our nation’s “Illegal Alien Problem”, since.

Of course, the murder of Mr. Krentz was “just another isolated incident”, right?

Wrong.

Per usillegalaliens.com,

  • In Los Angeles, 95% of some 1,500 outstanding warrants for homicides are for illegal aliens. About 67% of the 17,000 outstanding fugitive felony warrants are for illegal aliens.
  • There are currently over 400,000 unaccounted for illegal alien criminals with outstanding deportation orders. At least one fourth of these are hard core criminals.
  • 80,000 to 100,000 illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes are walking the streets. Based on studies they will commit an average of 13 serious crimes per perpetrator.
  • Illegal aliens are involved in criminal activities at a rate that is 2-5 times their representative proportion of the population.
  • In 1980, our Federal and state facilities held fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens but at the end of 2003, approximately 267,000 illegal aliens were incarcerated in U.S. correctional facilities at a cost of about $6.8 billion per year.
  • At least 4.5 million pounds of cocaine with a street value of at least $72 billion is smuggled across the southern border every year. ..
  • 56% of illegal aliens charged with a reentry offense had previously been convicted on at least 5 prior occasions.
  • Illegal aliens charged with unlawful reentry had the most extensive criminal histories. 90% had been previously arrested. Of those with a prior arrest, 50% had been arrested for violent or drug-related felonies.
  • Illegal aliens commit between 700,000 to 1,289,000 or more crimes per year.

  • Only 2% of the illegal alien sex offenders in one study had no history of criminal behavior, beyond crossing the border illegally.
  • In Operation Predator, ICE arrested and deported 6,085 illegal alien pedophiles. Some studies suggest each pedophile molests average of 148 children. If so, that could be as many as 900,580 victims.
  • Nobody knows how big the Sex Slave problem is but it is enormous.
  • The very brutal MS-13 gang has over 15,000 members and associates in at least 115 different cliques in 33 states.
  • The overall financial impact of illegal alien crimes is estimated at between $14.4 and $81 billion or more per year. Factor in the crime as a result of the cocaine and other drugs being smuggled in and the number may reach $150 billion per year.

Meanwhile, Obama and his DOJ, instead of trying to curtail the problem of Illegal Aliens  commiting crimes after breaking in to our country, released more of these criminals back onto our streets.

Breitbart.com reports that

Texas Republican Rep. Lamar Smith reacted harshly to a new report detailing the crimes committed by 36,007 criminal immigrants that Immigration and Customs Enforcement released last year.

“This would be considered the worst prison break in American history, except it was sanctioned by the President and perpetrated by our own immigration officials. These criminal immigrants should have been deported to ensure that they could never commit crimes on U.S. soil. But instead, ICE officials chose not to detain them and instead released them back onto American streets,” Smith said in a statement Monday.

An internal Department of Homeland Security document obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies, a limited immigration group, and shared with Breitbart News Monday revealed that last year ICE released 36,007 criminal immigrants who had nearly 88,000 convictions.

The document further broke down the crimes and number of convictions – including 193 homicide convictions, 426 sexual assault convictions, 303 kidnapping convictions, and 1,075 aggravated assault convictions.

CIS detailed the document’s findings in a report Monday morning, explaining that ICE prepared the document in response to congressional inquiries seeking additional information about the number of criminal aliens released into the United States and the crimes for which they were convicted.

Smith was one of the members of Congress who pressed DHS for these answers.

The congressman actually did receive a response from DHS earlier this year explaining that ICE did release 36,007 criminal aliens. DHS also included a breakdown of the kinds of offenses but did not include the number of offenses per type of crime.

“Obama administration officials want the American people to think these individuals were guilty of minor, petty offenses,” Smith said. “But the convictions tell a chilling story. Among those released were criminal immigrants convicted of murder, rape, kidnapping, drunk driving, and aggravated assault.”

The Texas congressman added that immigration reform should be off the table until laws currently on the books are enforced.

“There should be no discussion of reforming our nation’s immigration laws until the President enforces the laws currently on the books. The safety of the American people should be the President’s top priority. We need a President who follows the law and deports criminal immigrants who violate our laws and endanger our lives.”

Unfortunately, Rep. Smith, that is not going to happen anytime soon. Obama and his political party, the Democrats, see potential voters, to be added to their roll through Amnesty.

What’s worse, the Establishment, or Vichy, Republicans naively think that, if they support pardoning those who are in our country illegally, the pardoned lawbreakers will forget about the Democrats, who give out free stuff, via taxpayer-funded programs, and vote for them.

Can this whole Illegal Alien/Amnesty Fiasco get any sleazier…and more dangerous? 

(Don’t forget…these are professional politicians we are talking about.)

It can…and, it will.

The United States of America Vs. Sheriff Joe Arpaio

The man who swore to take an oath to protect American citizens seems more concerned with protecting those here illegally.

Reuters.com reports that

The Obama administration on Tuesday said it was preparing to sue Arizona county sheriff Joe Arpaio and his department for violating civil rights laws by improperly targeting Latinos in a bid to crack down on illegal immigrants.

The sheriff’s high-profile crackdown on illegal immigrants has helped thrust the issue onto the national political stage with some states passing tough new laws aimed at pushing out those in the country illegally.

The administration’s Justice Department and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office have been in settlement talks for months over allegations that officers regularly made unlawful stops and arrests of Latinos, used excessive force against them and failed to adequately protect the Hispanic community.

Those negotiations have broken down because of a fight over the Justice Department’s demand that an independent monitor be appointed by a federal court to oversee compliance with the settlement, which has now reached 128 pages in draft form, according to the Obama administration.

“We believe that you are wasting time and not negotiating in good faith,” Roy Austin, deputy assistant attorney general in the Justice Department’s civil rights division, said in a letter to the lawyer for Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO).

Austin said in the letter that Arpaio’s team demanded that a meeting slated for Wednesday include for the first time negotiations over the monitor and previously had demanded that the Justice Department provide more details about its findings.

“MCSO’s refusal to engage in good faith negotiations requires us to prepare for civil (court) action,” Austin said. He added that the Justice Department has recently discovered more information about the “failure to reasonably investigate sex crimes” by Arpaio’s office.

The Justice Department in a December report outlined numerous alleged civil rights violations, including that Latino drivers were four to nine times more likely to be stopped than non-Latinos by Arpaio’s force.

The sheriff has steadfastly denied any wrongdoing and lashed out at the Obama administration for targeting his department and failing to deal with the problem of illegal immigration with some 11.5 million believed to be in the United States.

In a strongly worded statement on Tuesday, Arpaio said the appointment of a monitor would force him to abdicate responsibility for his police force, including decisions about policies, operations, jail programs and enforcement.

“To the Obama administration, who is attempting to strong arm me into submission only for its political gain, I say: This will not happen, not on my watch!” Arpaio said in the statement.

Arpaio’s force has been under investigation by federal authorities since 2008 during the Bush administration. Obama’s Justice Department spent months fighting for access to documents and to some of his deputies. Arpaio was interviewed twice during the probe.

Where was the concern of the Obama Administration when a good, hard-working American was gunned down by an illegal in Arizona.  Remember this story?

Police say Robert Krentz, whose family has been ranching in southern Arizona since 1907, was gunned down early Saturday morning, March 27th, 2010, by an illegal immigrant while out on his ATV tending to fences and water lines on the family’s 34,000-acre cattle ranch.

“My father was a very good family man,” Krentz told FoxNews.com. “He supported his kids, supported his family. He went out of his way to help anybody we could without regarding to who they were. It didn’t matter who they were.”

Sue Krentz, Krentz’s wife, said she was “pretty overwhelmed” by her husband’s death, which coincided with her parents’ deteriorating health.

“This is icing on the cake,” Krentz said.

Yes, it was. The public outcry was deafening.

“We in Arizona have been more than patient waiting for Washington to act,” Brewer said after signing the law. “But decades of inaction and misguided policy have created a dangerous and unacceptable situation.”

Do you realize that there are parts of Arizona where Americans are not allowed to travel because of the danger of violence from Mexican Drug Lords?

Roughly 3,500 acres of the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge — about 3 percent of the 118,000-acre park — have been closed since Oct. 6, 2006, when U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials acknowledged a marked increase in violence along a tract of land that extends north from the border for roughly three-quarters of a mile. Federal officials say they have no plans to reopen the area.

Elsewhere, at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, which shares a 32-mile stretch of the border with Mexico, visitors are warned on a federally-run website that some areas are not accessible by anyone.

“Due to our proximity to the International Boundary with Mexico, some areas near the border are closed for construction and visitor safety concerns,” the website reads.

On another page titled “Border Concerns,” the website warns that visitors should be aware that “drug smuggling routes” pass through the park.

“If you see any activity which looks illegal, suspicious, or out of place, please do not intervene,” the website reads. “Note your location. Call 911 or report it to a ranger as quickly as possible. Each year hundreds of people travel north through the park seeking to enter the United States.”

Visitors are also warned to be mindful of illegal immigrants within Ironwood Forest National Monument, a 129,000-acre federal parkland in the Sonoran Desert.

Excuse me, Mr. President and Mr. Attorney General…Before you attempt to embarrass and verbally crucify a fine public servant like Sheriff Joe, why don’t you take care of those in Arizona who are in violation of our country’s laws and endangering the lives of American citizens, first?

Your priorities seem to be just a wee bit out of order.
