“Detectives: Inmate plotted to assassinate Arpaio”

“Detectives: Inmate plotted to assassinate Arpaio”
“Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office says one of three maximum security inmates arrested for plotting to kill an inmate also planned to assassinate Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Detectives arrested on Wednesday 29-year-old Samuel Matta, an inmate in the state prison in Florence, on charges that he and two other inmates from the Sheriff’s 4th Avenue Jail conspired to kill another inmate.

According to investigators, detectives were tipped off that Matta was planning to publicly assassinate Arpaio using a high powered rifle.
Authorities says Matta believed that the Arpaio was personally responsible for the deportation of some his family members to Mexico from their home in El Mirage, Ariz.

The investigation into the Arpaio murder plot then led to the plan to kill another inmate.

It was unclear if Matta had an attorney.”

“Eric Holder made the following speech on April 2, 2009.

“Attorney General Eric Holder at the Mexico/United States Arms Trafficking Conference
CUERNAVACA, MEXICO ~ Thursday, April 2, 2009
Remarks as prepared for delivery.
First, let me express my thanks to Attorney General Medina Mora and Secretary of Government Gomez Mont for making this conference possible.

This is my first trip to another country as Attorney General.   I wanted to come to Mexico to deliver a single message: We stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you in this fight against the narcotics cartels.  The United States shares responsibility for this problem and we will take responsibility by joining our Mexican counterparts in every step of this fight.

And, together, we will win – thanks in large part to the courage of my Mexican colleagues here today, who are on the front lines every day, and with whom I am proud to collaborate.

The topic that has been addressed over the past two days could not be more important – the development of an arms trafficking prosecution and enforcement strategy on both sides of the border.

I would like to thank the Mexican and U.S. experts who have worked so hard on this issue.  On our side, Secretary Napolitano and I are committed to putting the resources in place to increase our attack on arms trafficking into Mexico.

Last week, our administration launched a major new effort to break the backs of the cartels.  My department is committing 100 new ATF personnel to the Southwest border in the next 100 days to supplement our ongoing Project Gunrunner, DEA is adding 16 new positions on the border, as well as mobile enforcement teams, and the FBI is creating a new intelligence group focusing on kidnapping and extortion.  DHS is making similar commitments, as Secretary Napolitano will detail.

But as today’s conference has emphasized, the problem of arms trafficking will not be stopped at the border alone.  Rather, as our experts emphasized, this is a problem that must be met as part of a comprehensive attack against the cartels – an attack in depth, on both sides of the border, that focuses on the leadership and assets of the cartel.  This is the type of full-bore, prosecution-driven approach that the U.S. Department of Justice took to dismantle La Cosa Nostra – once the most powerful organized crime group operating in the United States.
With partners like those we have here today, I am confident that together, we will defeat these narcotics cartels in exactly the same way.  I am proud to stand with you, and to join you in this fight.  Thank you again for inviting me here.”

From Citizen Wells July 20, 2011,

“The Justice Department is trying to protect its political appointees from the Fast and Furious scandal by concealing an internal “smoking gun” report and other documents that acknowledge the role top officials played in the program that allowed firearms to flow illegally into Mexico, according to the head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Kenneth E. Melson, the ATF’s acting director, also told congressional investigators this month that the affidavits prepared to obtain wiretaps used in the ill-fated operation were inconsistent with Justice Department officials’ public statements about the program. Justice Department officials advised him not to raise his concerns with Congress about “institutional problems” with the Fast and Furious operation, Melson said.
“It was very frustrating to all of us,” Melson told congressional investigators in a private meeting over the Fourth of July holiday, “and it appears thoroughly to us that the department is really trying to figure out a way to push the information away from their political appointees at the department.”

Not only was the department slow to react, Melson said, but Justice Department officials indicated they did not want him to cooperate with Congress.”

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg and Deputy Attorney General David Ogden held a news conference to announce the U.S.-Mexico Border Security Policy. They spoke to reporters and answered questions about plans to send about 500 more agents and equipment to the nation’s southwestern border and Mexico to fight Mexican drug cartels and keep violence from spilling over into the United States. Secretary Napolitano said officials were still considering whether to deploy the National Guard to the Arizona and Texas borders with Mexico, which the governors had requested. She also acknowledged that greater efforts were needed within the U.S. to combat the drug trade.”

From The Brian Terry Foundation.

“Our son didn’t have to die.

It has been more than 18 months since our son, Brian Terry, was shot and killed by a Mexican drug cartel armed by a failed U.S. Department of Justice “gunwalking” operation known as “Fast and Furious.”

The pain that Brian’s death has caused our family is indescribable. No matter what words we use in this letter to you, we will never be able to justly convey how much suffering we have endured. We still grieve every day, and we are resigned to the fact that the agony of his death will stick with us for the rest of our lives. Not because he didn’t achieve his dreams . . . not because he didn’t live his life to the fullest . . . and not because he didn’t leave anything behind that we couldn’t celebrate or remember.

Our family will be forever grief-stricken because Brian didn’t have to die.

We wish we could take solace knowing that Brian died doing what he loved to do. After all, it was his childhood dream to make a career in law enforcement and become a federal agent.

As a youngster, Brian was inspired by his Uncle Bob, a Michigan police offer who would give Brian tours of the police station and share stories of what it was like to be a police officer. From then on, Brian believed he was destined for a career in law enforcement. He joined the Marine Corps after high school and served four years in Naples, Italy before becoming a police officer in Lincoln Park, Michigan – just like his uncle. But Brian’s ultimate dream was to become a federal agent, and so he applied to the United States Border Patrol.

In 2007, he attended the Border Patrol Academy in El Paso, Texas, graduating as president of his class before being assigned to the Naco station near Bisbee, Arizona, only a few miles from the U.S.-Mexican border.

Brian accomplished exactly what he wanted to. But all of what he had worked for – and all our family had come to adore and love – was taken away so abruptly . . . so needlessly.

On December 14, 2010, Brian was conducting operations as a member of the Border Patrol Tactical Unit in Nogales, Arizona. He and his team encountered five Mexican drug cartel bandits in the “Peck Well” area near Rio Rico, Arizona. Not knowing the bandits were carrying the latest military grade assault weapons provided by the Justice Department as part of Operation Fast and Furious, there was an exchange of gunfire and Brian was shot in the lower back.

He died on December 15, 2010.

Before then, our family was expecting Brian to return home for Christmas. What we were not expecting was that he would return home in a flag-draped casket. All because of an ill-conceived government gun trafficking investigation gone horribly awry.
Please consider a contribution to the Brian Terry Foundation

The Justice Department’s “gunwalking” operation called for American gun dealers to sell weapons to “straw purchasers” tied to Mexican drug cartels between 2009-2011. The intention was to track the guns as they were sold to Mexican drug lords, which would theoretically lead to the arrests and dismantling of the cartels.

But that’s not what happened. It turned out that there was no actual plan to track the movement of the guns as they were “walked” into Mexico.

As a result, one of our four children and as many as 200 Mexican citizens were killed with weapons connected to the operation.

Still, hundreds of guns sold as part of Operation Fast and Furious remain unrecovered, putting more brave law enforcement personnel along the border – like our son – at unnecessary risk.

Even though our son fell in the line of duty more than 18 months ago, we still don’t have answers that explain why he had to die.

Unfortunately for our family and the families of others who have been injured or killed with these weapons, our son’s death has ballooned into a national controversy. Currently, the House Oversight Committee is moving forward with contempt proceedings against Eric Holder, the U.S. Attorney General and head of the Justice Department, for failing to comply with a congressional subpoena requesting all of his communications regarding Operation Fast and Furious. Our hope is that the Justice Department is not withholding information that could expose those who are responsible for our son’s death.

It has been nearly eight months since Mr. Holder was served his subpoena, and we know little more now than we did then. We think our family and Brian’s memory deserve better.

So even though this government investigation drags on and prolongs our family’s suffering, we are taking action.

We have established the Brian Terry Foundation not just to preserve Brian’s memory and honor his service to our country, but to also help families of other U.S. Border Patrol Agents who have been killed or injured by providing ongoing emotional and financial support, establish educational scholarships, recognize the heroic efforts of current Border Patrol Agents, and raise public awareness of the flawed Fast and Furious investigation. It is also our personal mission to guarantee that any mistakes made by the Justice Department are never made again.

Because of Operation Fast and Furious, some of the most dangerous criminal organizations in North America have been strengthened, and now our Border Patrol Agents are in the gravest danger of their lives.

So please, we urge you – not just for our son, but for all U.S. Border Patrol Agents who came before him and who will come after him – to join our cause and give as generously as you can. We have to make sure that nothing like Fast and Furious ever happens again, and without grassroots support from folks like yourself, our mission fails. This failed government operation cost our son his life, but that doesn’t have to stop us from saving the life of someone else’s son.

In the loving and enduring memory of Brian A. Terry,

Kent Terry, Sr. and Josephine Terry

The Brian Terry Foundation

P.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s refusal to fully disclose the documents associated with Operation Fast and Furious and President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege serves to compound this tragedy. It denies the Terry family and the American people the truth. The President’s executive priveledge makes getting to the truth much more difficult. We really do need your help. If you can afford to support the Brian Terry Foundation financially please give as generously as you can.”

We anxiously await the Sheriff Joe Arpaio news conference of recent findings in Hawaii and elsewhere regarding Obama’s birth certificate and other records. Joe Arpaio turns 80 today, June 14, 2012.

From The Arizona Republic June 14, 2012.

BY E. J. Montini.

“Fourscore and Joe Arpaio: The sheriff turns 80”

“Over the 20 years I’ve known him, there is one unwavering conviction I’ve shared with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio: He should never, ever retire.

The self-proclaimed toughest sheriff in America, who’s been in office since the Lincoln presidency (or so it seems), was born fourscore years ago today.

He’s 80.
When Arpaio ran for office in 1992, he promised to serve one term and then leave. He changed his mind four years later, telling a reporter at the time that while he had no intention to seek higher office, he wasn’t finished.

“He does intend to break a 1992 campaign promise and run again this fall for a second term,” the reporter wrote. “After that, he says, he’ll retire and take care of his grandchildren.”

By 2000, the grandkids were doing fine without him, but not the people of Maricopa County. Arpaio has since run for re-election and won three more times.

He’s scoffed at the notion of retirement ever since.”

“If you love the job and want to keep it, make them drag you out of the office kicking and screaming.

Arpaio has found ways to win elections using Army-surplus tents, chain gangs and pink underwear. He’s kept himself in the news by eliminating hot lunches and girlie magazines from the jails. He got himself on TV using his posse to shoo prostitutes off the streets, to patrol shopping malls during the holidays and to investigate the president’s birth certificate.

He became a zealot on the subject of illegal immigration after the now-disbarred former County Attorney Andrew Thomas got elected by way of an anti-immigrant campaign.

Now, he’s running for re-election again.

The feds are after him … again.

He’s facing two much- younger opponents. He has demonstrators outside his office on most days. His popularity is down, and there are people who say that he’s “lost it.”

None of this is new.

Back in 1994, when he’d been in office for only two years, a reporter doing an interview with Arpaio mentioned that his critics called him a “demagogue,” a “blowhard” and a “buffoon.”

The sheriff answered, “If I’m all those things, sobeit. I’m still getting the job done. That’s the bottom line.” Then, he added, “I’ll tell you one thing: I’m going to continue on.”

I was asked this week by a TV reporter if I believed Arpaio, at 80, was fit to serve for four more years. My answer was:

What makes you think he wants to serve only four more years?”

“Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio will celebrate his 80th birthday on Thursday.
The sheriff says he has special plans to mark his birthday, but declined to reveal them.
He says he remains in good health and wants to be “the poster boy for senior citizens.”
The Republican sheriff has served five terms as sheriff and is seeking re-election in November.
He faces a challenge from retired Phoenix police officer Paul Penzone and Scottsdale police Lt. Mike Stauffer.
Penzone is running as a Democrat, while Stauffer is running as an Independent.”

Arizona Voter ID Law upheld in Federal Appeals Court, Voters show proof of citizenship, US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals

Arizona Voter ID Law upheld in Federal Appeals Court, Voters show proof of citizenship, US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals

“The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command. His heart sank as he thought of the enormous power arrayed against him, the ease with which any Party intellectual would overthrow him in debate, the subtle arguments which he would not be able to understand, much less answer. And yet he was in the right! They were wrong and he was right. The obvious, the silly, and the true had got to be defended. Truisms are true, hold on to that! The solid world exists, its laws do not change. Stones are hard, water is wet, objects unsupported fall towards the earth’s centre. With the feeling that he was speaking to O’Brien, and also that he was setting forth an important axiom, he wrote:

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984”

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”…Abraham Lincoln

“Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light.”…George Washington 

From Stand With Arizona April 17, 2012.

“Federal Appeals Court Upholds Most of Arizona Voter ID Law”

“In a ruling which demonstrated just how radical is the Obama Administration’s opposition to Voter ID laws, the very liberal U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld Arizona’s voter-approved 2004 law requiring voters to show proof of citizenship before receiving a ballot – a big victory in the battle against voter fraud in the runup to the November elections.

The Appeals Court mostly shot down the challenges to the law, which had itself been upheld in Arizona U.S. District Court. Arizona can demand to see certain forms of identification that proves citizenship, the court ruled.

And if someone doesn’t have those forms of ID, paying the fees to obtain the ID isn’t the same as a “poll tax.”

However, the court also ruled that Arizona must not refuse federal voter registration forms, which work on the honor system by asking applicants to check a box indicating whether they’re U.S. citizens. Arizona can’t replace that form with its form that requires proof of citizenship, the court ruled. This is a remnant of the ultra-flawed National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (“Motor Voter Act”), which SWA has urged Congress to modify in future legislation.

But overall, the ruling is a major victory for Arizona voters, who overwhelmingly approved the law, and for Americans who support Voter ID laws with 73% support, according to a poll published just yesterday. And it may also be a preview of defeats yet to come for the Obama Administration’s block of state Voter Id laws. including in Texas and South Carolina. Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder have tried to pretend that the Supreme Court never ruled in Crawford v. Marion County Election Board (2008) , which upheld photo ID requirements for voting. But they are destined to lose big when the Texas and S.C. challenges get to the Federal courts.

Left-wing groups, including Chicanos Por la Causa, League of Women Voters, ACLU and Arizona’s patron saint of illegal aliens, Sen. Steve Gallardo had all filed suit, among others. The plaintiffs in the case “did not prove that the ability of Hispanics to participate in the political process was lessened somehow because of the law”, the Ninth found.

Judge Johnnie Rawlinson dissented, finding that Arizona could reject federal voter registration forms in place of its own form. Judge Harry Pregerson also dissented, but for a different reason. He believes the polling-place ID provision discriminates against Hispanics. The plaintiffs may appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Glenn Beck insults Sherrif Joe Arpaio and millions of concerned Americans, Beck Religious beliefs questioned, Listen to God more O’Reilly less

“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense,  to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells

“Why does Glenn Beck continue to make uninformed attacks and insults upon Sheriff Joe Arpaio and millions of concerned Americans?”…Citizen Wells

“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.”…Proverbs 16:18

What makes a man like Glenn Beck, who professes to have religious and conservative values, who claims to believe in the US Constitution, say the things that he says. What makes Beck praise Sheriff Joe Arpaio for doing one part of his job, protect the border, and at the same time ridicule him for doing another
part of his job.

Although I tend to like Glenn Beck and agree with him on most subjects, I have let him have it in the past for criticizing and ridiculing millions of
concerned Americans, including high ranking military officers, for questioning Obama’s past, his records and his eligibility for the presidency. I have never
had a problem with Glenn Beck not agreeing with those concerned Americans. However, he has gone to extremes in his criticism and belittling. This makes me
question, if not his patriotism, his alleged religious values.

Also disturbing about Glenn Beck’s remarks on Obama’s eligibility is his admission that he doesn’t do research and relies on his staff and sources like Bill
O’Reilly. O’Reilly finally admitted that he used the newspaper announcements in Hawaii as evidence of Obama’s birth there. Beck just used this argument as
well. Anyone doing minimal research has discovered that anyone could place an announcement in the paper and do so much after the fact. One also finds that
placing the ad in one newpaper automatically placed it in the other.

Why would Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly use the newspaper announcement as proof of Obama’s birth in Hawaii. Aside from what we know about them, they have always been at best someone announcing a birth, not a legal document and certainly not date, time location proof.

When Glenn Beck left Fox last year, he said that he was leaving with his soul.

I am not convinced that Glenn Beck left with his soul. I also have doubts about Beck’s religious beliefs just as I have with Barack Obama.

“22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”…Galatians 5:22-23

Does someone who believes in God and who follows the teachings of Jesus behave as Beck and his lackeys do? Forgeting the difference of opinion for a moment and just focusing on the way Sheriff Joe Arpaio and concerned Americans are portrayed in this video, does this reveal fruit of a godly spirit?

Many of the comments on this blog echo my disgust about Glenn Beck’s actions. This one from SueK on March 3, 2012 resonated with me:
“I was so aggravated at Beck that I actually posted on his site last night after that wonderful slam of Sheriff Joe. You’re familiar with some of the vernacular I use. Just had to get it off my chest and call a spade a spade or, in this case, a moron a moron .

Feathers are ruffled, but powder is still dry….
*************************************************************

Glenn, you’re a moron.

It doesn’t matter if Barky was born on the crown of the Statue of Liberty; his father was a Kenyan and never an American citizen and that alone disqualifies him.

The 1875 Supreme Court case, Minor v. Happersett defined a Natural Born Citizen as a person born in the country to citizen parentS. PARENTS. Plural. Even you can understand that. This case has never been overturned; it is the precedent and defines the qualifications for POTUS.

I’m just glad that Sheriff Joe has the babalones to tackle the eligibility issue and I give him a ton of credit; you weenies in the lamestream media are all complicit for getting a fraud and usurper into the White House.

Thanks a lot. Hope you’re proud.

I look forward to the day when I see Barky and his wife, the Klingon War Bride, doing the perp walk out of OUR White House in orange jumpsuits with the word ‘Leavenworth’ embroidered on the back. That will happen, despite ignorant ‘entertainers’ like you.”

Trust more in God less in Bill O’Reilly.

Be careful who you associate with. Your staff is suspect.
