Arizona inmates punished with bread-and-water meals for defacing flags

joe

Sun News: Inmates at six Arizona prisons who defaced American flags placed in their cells are being punished with bread-and-water meals for seven days.

Controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio, who manages the facilities, said the 38 inmates tore the flags down and wrote on them, threw them in the toilet or stepped on them.

“It’s a disgrace to those who have fought for our county,” Arpaio said in a press release.

The flags are part of a new program that has inmates listen to the Star-Spangled Banner every morning and God Bless America every night. Arpaio has also segregated inmates who are veterans so they get “unique programming” and “help associated with their needs.”

Arpaio, who is reportedly considering running for governor, has been accused of abusing prisoners and ignoring sex crimes. A federal court ruled last spring that his deputies racially profiled Latino drivers, although Arpaio has appealed the decision.

Way to go Joe!

BOMBSHELL: Document Examiner Tied To Obama Defense Attorney Says Birth Certificate Is 100% Fraud

http://minutemennews.com           9 June 2013

"Thought Bubble" Damn you George Bush!

“Thought Bubble” Damn you George Bush!

Reed Hayes is a court qualified handwriting and document examiner whose business is located in Honolulu, Hawaii. He has nearly 40 years of handwriting related experience, and has worked as an international consultant and speaker. Never heard of him? Well, Hayes is the Certified Document Examiner (CDE) who produced the 40 page opinion referenced in the Mike Zullo affidavit that was submitted to the Alabama Supreme Court in the Obama eligibility case and his report concluded that the Obama birth certificate image, located at WhiteHouse.gov is a complete fabrication.

PPSimmons reports:

The rabid followers of the “O” (Obots) have rushed to denounce Reed Hayes as a “quack.” However, one might be surprised to learn that one of Hayes’ clients listed in the Expert Witness Directory at this link is an attorney with Perkins-Coie Law Firm.

Perkins – Coie is the law practice whose partners have provided Obama’s personal defense against all birth certificate and natural born citizen litigation over the past five years.  Hmmmmm.  Very interesting indeed.

If it turns out that Sheriff Arpaio is successful in getting Congress to investigate the authenticity of Obama’s BC, the Perkins-Coie legal team, who will be defending Obama, will be hard pressed to simply dismiss Reed Hayes as a “quack.”  This fact will be especially significant now that it is a revealed and proven truth that members of the Perkins – Coie firm have used Hayes as an expert witness! Their own prior cases, where Hayes was used as a witness, would be severely compromised if they use Saul Alinski-styled mocking attacks on Hayes.

It has been reported that Mr. Hayes has been hounded by Obama operatives to discover the details of his 40-page forensic analysis of the Obama pdf birth certificate. He has been referring them to Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse, who now legally own his report, for further information.

I also found it interesting that someone sided with the Obama administration and attempted to bring up dirt on Hayes by pointing out that he was a homosexual with a “partner,” who is now deceased. Isn’t that interesting? Why would that be considered “dirt” from the Obama side? Isn’t he the one telling us that is “normal” and isn’t he the one helping to push the homosexual agenda along? Ah, the hypocrisy!

Mike Zullo responded to the revelation from Hayes, “This ought to serve as a warning shot across the bow to the naysayers of our criminal investigation in the Obama fraud case. The impressive credentials of Mr. Hayes, and the fact that he has testified in court cases for Perkins-Coie coupled with the fact that Mr. Hayes is a registered Democrat, demonstrates the integrity of our investigation and our conviction that we possess incontrovertible evidence to back our case. It must be emphasized that we possess much more evidence similar to this revelation that we have not yet released for public information.”

 

 

U.S. County Sheriffs say “no” to Obama gun control

As the Shadow of Tyranny creeps ever more and more over America, the U.S. County Sheriff is the line in the sand.

The county sheriff is the one who can say to the feds, “Beyond these bounds you shall not pass.” This is not only within the scope of the sheriff’s authority; it’s the sheriff’s sworn duty.

More and more of America’s sheriffs are saying “No” to the Obama regime’s gun control agenda.

The list below is from CSPOA (Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association) — and more sheriffs are signing onto it by the day. If your sheriff isn’t on the list, ask him/her why!!!

I will be adding names to this list as more sheriffs join this cause. Names added to the list after I’ve published this post are colored green.

A win for Sheriff Joe: Feds end investigation; no charges filed

Diogenes, the ancient Greek philosopher of Stoicism, is famous for carrying a lit lamp around town, claiming to be looking for just one honest man. Well, we have found that man, and he is Arizona Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Why?

Because the POS’s Department of (In)Justice tried to intimidate and harass him by launching a criminal investigation into Arpaio’s alleged financial misconduct. But on Friday, August 31, 2012, the federal government closed its investigation of nearly two years. More than that, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said no charges will be filed against the good sheriff.

According to NBC News, the investigation had begun in November 2010 at the behest of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to examine alleged financial improprieties by the county sheriff and his deputies.

A federal criminal inquiry into several of those matters was concluded last summer with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona declining to initiate criminal charges. Maricopa County authorities were informed on Friday that federal prosecutors had likewise declined to bring charges in connection with allegations that the sheriff’s office had misused county credit cards or misspent money from jail facilities excise taxes. Assistant U.S. Attorney Ann Birmingham Scheel said in a statement that her office “is closing its investigation into allegations of criminal conduct by current and former members of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.”

Arpaio, 80, who returned from the Republican National Convention on Friday night, said he was “very happy” with decision and that “I send my appreciation to the federal government for their hard work in clearing my office.”

However, a separate federal investigation since 2008 relating to allegations of civil rights abuses by Arpaio’s office is continuing. Arpaio has denied any wrongdoing and said he would cooperate with investigators.

In July of this year, Arpaio denied in testimony in a class-action lawsuit that his deputies targeted people because of the color of their skin. He was testifying whether police can target illegal immigrants without racially profiling Hispanic citizens and legal residents. “I am against anyone racial profiling … today as in my 50 years in law enforcement,” Arpaio told the court during cross-examination.

Arpaio is also known for outfitting county jail inmates in pink underwear, claiming the pink shorts are less likely to be smuggled out of jail and sold on the black market, and for housing inmates in a Tent City jail in Phoenix, even when Sonoran Desert summer temperatures soar to 115 degrees.

First voted into office in 1992 and reelected five times, Arpaio is seeking re-election to a sixth term as sheriff in November.

In two successive press conferences in March and Julyof this year, Arpaio announced that the extensive investigation undertaken by his all-volunteer Cold Case Posse found compelling evidence that the image of Obama’s long-form birth certificate released by the White House in April 2011 was “definitely” a computer-generated forgery. Arpaio called this matter an imminent threat to U.S. national security and immigration laws. (Read more about this here.)

None of that made any difference because both the media and Congress ignored his team’s findings.

Dem Sen. Feinstein: Obama White House source of national security leaks

Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio isn’t the only person calling Obama a threat to U.S. national security.

Now a Democratic U.S. senator, Diane Feinstein of California, is pointing her finger at Obama’s White House as the source of recent leaks of classified national security information.

Tony Lee reports for Breitbart.com, July 24, 2012, that Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, on Monday said the White House appears to be responsible for leaking classified national security information.

‘‘I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks,’’ Feinstein said at a World Affairs Council forum, according to the Associated Press (AP).

Republicans, such as Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), have accused the Obama administration of leaking national security information to win votes. Specifically, McCain mentioned the computer virus program that disabled some of Iran’s nuclear facilities — and other sensitive national security matters.

Tom Donilon

The uproar intensified when the The New York Times ran a story titled, “Obama order sped up wave of cyberattacks against Iran.” The Times has also published stories on Obama’s “kill lists” with sources that were all affiliated with the Obama administration. The Times has denied that the Obama administration leaked information to them.

Democrat Pat Caddell has pointed the finger at National Security Adviser Tom Donilon as the primary leaker of sensitive national security information.

Sheriff Joe to testify at Florida Obama eligibility hearing tomorrow

A Florida court will have a hearing tomorrow (Monday) morning, beginning at 9 a.m., on Voeltz v. Obama — the latest challenge to Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be on the November ballot.

Judge Terry Lewis, best known for presiding over the 2000 Bush v. Gore election dispute, will consider arguments from attorney Larry Klayman and attorneys for the Obama campaign. The hearing will focus on Obama’s claim to be a “natural born citizen,”” as required under Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution. Monday’s event is just to hear a motion for dismissal and debate the nature of the “natural born Citizen” requirement for the Presidency. Win or lose, this case will likely be appealed and will drag out much dirty laundry.

Florida is a must-win “swing state” for “Obama.” If he is not on the ballot, he simply cannot win. If he is successfully challenged here, or even nearly-successfully, it will create a host of problems in other states.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio will testify for the plaintiff.

WND-TV will provide gavel-to-gavel, live video coverage of the hearing.

Sign up now to get access to WND-TV’s special free, live-stream page prior to the hearing. After you sign up, WND will notify you via e-mail how to access the live-streaming of the hearing.

Man convicted of death threats against Sheriff Joe escapes

A man described as a Barack Obama “fanatic,” who was convicted for making online death threats against Arizona Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, has escaped.

Our Constitutional First Amendment right to free speech ends when we threatens bodily harm to another. It is a federal crime, punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, to transmit any communication containing a threat to injure the person of another, via the Internet and e-mail (as well as the telephone, beepers, and other means of communication).

On March 14, 2012, 33-year-old Adam Eugene Cox of Knoxville, Tennessee, had pled guilty to death threats against Arpaio and his family. Cox was the “anonymous” person who left numerous online comments last October (2011), at the ObamaReleaseYourRecords site, threatening to kill various individuals who have pursued the Obama eligibility matter. One comment was directed at Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his family:

“I plan to kill Joe Arpaio first.. He will be filled with a thousand bullet holes before the year is out., I promise you this. He won’t fuck with Obama. He will be buried 10 feet under and his whole family will be murdered along with him. Don’t like it? Come stop me. Come die before me.”

Cox was sentenced to jail time, as well as probation and a mandatory mental health evaluation.

Two days ago, however, news came that Cox had fled Tennessee and may be heading west to Arizona.

Adam Eugene Cox

Phil Benson reports for CBS 5 AZ.com, May 22, 2012, that Cox did not complete the terms of his sentencing before apparently fleeing the state.

Last seen about three weeks ago, Cox reportedly told his probation officer he was heading west.

A warrant for his arrest has been issued. Sheriff’s security has been alerted, and Cox’s mug shot has been distributed to other law enforcement agencies.

Is Sheriff Joe Getting Too Close To The Truth About Obama?

Government plans to sue Arizona sheriff for targeting Latinos

WASHINGTON | Tue Apr 3, 2012 6:20pm EDT

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – 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.

Sheriff Joe’s press conference, March 31, 2012

What if you gave a press conference and no members of the press deigned to come?

That’s what happened at a press conference attended by 1,200 citizens, which was held last Saturday, March 31, at the Church on the Green in Sun City, Arizona.

Sponsored by the Surprise and Sun City Tea Party groups, the press conference featured Arizona Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his all-volunteer Cold Posse’s lead investigator Mike Zullo as the keynote speakers, on the “probable” forgery of Barack Obama’s online birth certificate and selective service forms.

Most of the event was comprised of information that has already been released in earlier press conferences, but not widely reported on by the mainstream media, out of fear of ridicule, or perhaps fear of sanctions by the federal government.  Despite this, Arpaio and Zullo did disclose several updates to this case:

  • The word spacing and typewriter fonts on Obama’s birth certificate are uneven, suggesting the use of multiple typewriters, and consequently, cutting and pasting from various original documents.
  • The numbers listed on Obama’s online birth certificate are out of sequence with other birth certificates released around the same purported time of Obama’s birth.
  • Sheriff Joe had sent a letter to the director of the Selective Service asking for Obama’s original Selective Service registration form. Arpaio was told that nothing was wrong and that if he had a reason to inquire further, he should get in touch with the FBI. (For background of the investigation into Obama’s selective service card, watch this video.) Arpaio will continue to pursue this matter with the selective service authorities.
  • When asked who could be behind a conspiracy of this magnitude, he admitted that they do not yet know exactly who is behind this conspiracy. When asked if George Soros was behind it, Zullo seemed to admit the possibility.
  • In response to questions about a purported Kenyan Birth Certificate, as well as a video making the rounds that seems to show Obama telling an audience he is from Kenya, Zullo made clear that both were fabricated and both distracted from real issues in Barack Obama’s eligibility.

Here’s the video of the press conference. Note the entire group stood for the Pledge of Allegiance (1:40 mark), unlike Maricopa High School.

The Surprise & Sun City West Tea Party groups are asking ALL Arizona citizens to sign a petition directed to Ken Bennett, AZ Secretary of State, that states the following:

Petition Requesting a RESOLUTION as per ARS 41-121-1. The Secretary of State shall: Receive bills and resolutions from the legislature, and perform such other duties as devolve upon the Secretary of State by resolution of the two houses or either of them.”

We the undersigned Arizona citizens are requesting that the Arizona House, and / or the Arizona Senate pass a RESOLUTION directing Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett to send a certified letter to Democratic National Committee Chairperson, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, requesting that she produce certified source documents that are satisfactory to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office that positively identify the U.S. natural born citizenship and the Selective Service System Registration of Barack Hussein Obama II. With the recent findings of the MCSO Cold-Case Posse, there is probable cause to believe that Barack Hussein Obama II’s Selective Service System Registration Form and his State of Hawaii Certification of Live Birth Form are criminal forgeries, it is imperative to determine Barack Hussein Obama II’s status regarding his eligibility to be placed on the 2012 Arizona ballot.”

To sign the petition, go here. Please forward the link to your friends and family who live in Arizona!

Sheriff Joe asks Selective Service for Obama’s original registration form

Most of the media — including Fox News and conservative radio hosts — have ignored the shocking findings of a U.S. county sheriff’s investigation that Obama’s birth certificate and Selective Service card both are likely forgeries. In fact, Arizona Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio calls the media blackout of his March 1 press conference “probably the biggest censorship blackout in the history of the United States.”

But the media blackout has not stopped the pugnacious sheriff.

Joe Kovacs reports for WorldNetDaily that on a national radio show hosted by Roger Hedgecock on March 16, Sheriff Joe promises there are “tons” more potentially shocking information on Obama”

“I’m not going after the president to keep him off a ballot or anything else, but that could happen. I’m going at it strictly as a law-enforcement guy investigating a possible forgery and fraud. I’m sticking with that, but I’ll tell you one thing. We got tons of other information that could be very shocking, too, but I’m sticking now with just the [forgery] investigation and possible criminal violations.”

Arpaio’s latest move is a request to to the U.S. Selective Service System, asking its director, Lawrence Romo, to:

  • “conduct an investigation of Barack Obama’s Selective Service registration form from 1980″ and
  • “provide the original form [Obama's original Selective Service registration card] so forensic document examiners can analyze the document to determine if it is authentic.”

Arpaio is giving Romo’s office 30 days to respond to his request. Read Arpaio’s statement in pdf, here.

Obama appointee Selective Service Director Lawrence Romo

On Hedgecock’s radio show, Arpaio noted:

“I guess common sense would be to send it to them. The Selective Service director is appointed by the president. … They only have 136 employees in the whole organization. I presume if I did that, what do you think they’re gonna to do with it? The director who was appointed from San Antonio, Texas, eight months into the Obama administration, what do you think he’s gonna do? He’s probably gonna call some guy at the White House if he can get up to the chief of staff to ask some advice, and then what are they gonna do? Give it to the attorney general? I don’t know. … So I’m fighting big battles here.”

Arpaio made special note about the issue of Obama’s possibly forged Selective Service Card.

“We had a press conference. A lot of people came. They were snickering, trying to embarrass me, [saying] this is a pony show trying to get publicity,” he said. “However, when we showed the Selective Service Card on the screen, you could hear a pin drop.”

Because of inconsistencies on the form itself – including an unusually incomplete date stamp – sheriff’s investigators suspect the form, which was allegedly filled out in Honolulu in 1980, may be a forgery.

As explained in the video below, Sheriff Joe’s Cold Posse investigators were able to replicate the alleged forgery by obtaining a circa 1980 pica stamp and a circa “2008″ date plug. Investigators were able to clearly demonstrate the “80″ (which should have actually read 1980) in Obama’s Selective Service Registration form resulted from cutting out the “08″ from an authentic “2008″ date plug, and inverting the “08″ to read “80″ when the cut plug was loaded into the year slot on the 1980 pica stamp.

Meanwhile, trying to get to the truth of Obama’s eligibility is now snowballing into a bi-partisan effort.

Bob Unruh reports for WND that a Democrat has filed a lawsuit in Florida asking state officials to remove Barack Obama’s name from the 2012 election ballot because he has not documented that he is eligible for the office.

The case was filed by Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch USA on behalf of Democrat Michael Voeltz, “a registered member of the Democrat Party, voter, and taxpayer in Broward County, who was an eligible elector for the Florida Primary of Jan. 31, 2012.”
