Sheriff Joe Arpaio In Charge Of DHS?

Sheriff, or more accurately, Ex-Sheriff, Joe Arpaio got some bad news this week. A mean old judge decided that violating a court order is a NO-NO, even if you are “America’s Toughest Sheriff!” (That’s the way Sheriff Joe thought of himself. Others would have used a different adjective!)

As a reward for blatantly not doing what he was told to do and doing what he was told not to do (aka “Criminal Contempt“), Sheriff Joe gets an all-expense-paid vacation at the local “Stony Lonesome Inn” for up to 6 months.

The good thing for Sheriff Joe (and the sad thing for the rest of us) is that the man that knocked him out at the ballot box, closed the “tent city” jail. (Sitting in a tent on a 110 degree summer day gets awfully close to “cruel & unusual.”) Also gone are those pretty pink jumpsuits Sheriff Joe liked his prisoners to wear. (Sheriff Joe sure must like pink…..)

Maybe they could make an exception and bring those back, just for Joe. (He’d be more comfortable in familiar surroundings.)

Now, the filbert-fringe types claim this is all a Dem plot to defame a true defender of ‘Murica! (At least the “white” part of it.) They’ve been hoping that the feds would drop the whole thing now that Trump (aka “Hair Fuhrer”) has taken over. Didn’t happen!

Fear not! Rick Wyles has come up with a llollapa-LOSER of a brain(?)storm.

You may remember the Rickster from such gems as:

There’s a hell of a lot more, but you get the picture.

Anyway, now that it’s too late to get the case dropped, it’s time to get a pardon from Hair Fuhrer. (Maybe as part of a group thingy when our gearless leader pardons himself, his family, staff and any Russians involved.) That would free up Sheriff Joe to take the next step up the ladder. (And avoid singing the “Iron Bar Blues.”)

What would that next step be?” you may ask.

Isn’t it obvious? But here, I’ll let the Rickster tell you:

I have an idea. In addition to giving him a presidential pardon … President Trump, if you want to stand for justice and do something to strike against the deep state, please nominate Sheriff Arpaio to be the next secretary of Homeland Security.

The position will put him in charge of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, along with the U.S. Border Patrol Agency. Your friends will shout with excitement and gratitude and your enemies will howl in misery, like wounded wolves.

Just what ‘Murica needs, one of the biggest racial bigots behind a badge since Bull Conner, in charge of Immigration. As for America, it’s one of the last things we need!

Stay tuned!

Did Ann Coulter Help Write Trump’s Anti-Muslim Immigration Policy?

Ann Coulter (aka “The Wicked Witch of the NE”) is back in the news cycle again.

Today’s [7/10/17] issue of “New York Magazine” has some excerpts from Joshua Green’s new book, “Devil’s Bargain.” While the book is mostly about Steve Bannon’s influence over Donald Trump, there is a very interesting part about Ms Coulter.

When Trump came under fire because his campaign hadn’t produced a single policy paper, Bannon arranged for [Sam] Nunberg and Ann Coulter, the conservative pundit, to quickly write a white paper on Trump’s immigration policies. When the campaign released it, Coulter, without disclosing her role, tweeted that it was “the greatest political document since the Magna Carta.”

This isn’t the first time Trump has depended on Coulter’s racist views to rev up his rhetoric.

As Peter Reinart put it in “The Atlantic” back in June, 2016:

The secret of Trump’s success, she argues, has been ideological. He recognized that “Americans,” by which she mostly means Republicans, “are homesick.” They don’t just oppose immigration because they believe it depresses wages and strains government services. They’re homesick for a whiter America, an America that was once truly free because “it’s not in the Anglo-Saxon character either to take orders or to give them.” (Never mind about slavery.) Since 1965, however, when Lyndon Johnson signed legislation allowing more immigration from Latin America, Asia, and Africa, the United States has been, according to Coulter in In Trump We Trust, overrun by “illiterate peasants … who can be instructed to learn certain symbols and bloc-vote for the Democrats.” In response, Democrats, along with rich Republicans, keep the doors open to non-European immigration, and thus America has grown “browner” and “shorter.” (That’s Coulter’s description from Adios America). Corruption rises. So does terrorism and rape.

The only thing that surprises me out of all of this is that Trump didn’t put her in charge of Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Stay Tuned!

Donald Trump, David Duke And Antisemitism

CNR_aoNUYAA477nIs Donald Trump antisemitic? Or is he so ignorant or unobservant that he reverts to stereotypes? Trump is a bigoted racist in speech and deed, there is no question about that. The only question is whether that extends to antisemitism.

The hairball has made some stereotypical comments about Jews, such as these from his December speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition.

Stupidly, you want to give money. …You’re not going to support me because I don’t want your money….I’m a negotiator, like you folks….Is there anyone in this room who doesn’t negotiate deals? Probably more than any room I’ve ever spoken.

However, I would chalk that up more to insensitivity than bigotry.

Also, he has a daughter, Ivanka, who converted to Judaism in 2009. From all accounts, Ivanka is very faithful in following Jewish precepts. And, from all accounts, he’s proud of her.

And, there are statements like this one from January of this year.

I will be very good to Israel. People know that. I have so many friends from Israel. I have won so many awards from Israel. I was even the grand marshal for the Israeli Day Parade a few years ago. So I will back Israel.

Of course, this is the same man that claims Hispanics and Black-Americans love him and will support him at the polls. (So far, I haven’t seen very much evidence of that.)

He does have a bit of a problem with Jewish Zionists. Or rather they have a problem with him. It seems he is not a member of the “Israel can do no wrong” crowd. At the aforementioned Republican Jewish Coalition speech, he suggested that Israelis and Palestinians were equally culpable for the collapse of the peace process. That comment drew quite a few boos from the crowd. He also cautioned against taking hard stands prior to negotiations.

You can’t go in with the attitude ‘we’re gonna shove it down your,’ you’ve got to go in and get it and do and do it nicely, so that everybody’s happy.

Despite what some extremists would like you to believe, taking a more neutral stand on some Israeli issues is not the same as being antisemitic.

That hasn’t stopped other extremist bigots from throwing Jews into the “them” category in the “us vs them” mindset.

And, speaking of those extremists, meet David Duke.

For those of you who weren’t around then or have short attention spans, David is a former member of the Louisiana House of Representatives (1989-92) as well as a candidate for President in 1988 & 1992, Louisiana Senator in 1990 & 1996, Louisiana Governor in 1991 and U.S House in 1999.

He’s also a former Grand Wizard of the KKKK (Knights of the Ku Klux Klan). In 1980, David dumped his robes, put on a suit and formed the NAAWP (National Association for the Advancement of White People). In 2005 he received an honorary PhD from the antisemitic Ukrainian Interregional Academy of Personnel Management (MAUP), an institution that has been described by the Anti-Defamation League as a “University of Hate

Trump has claimed that he didn’t know who Duke was. However, in 2000, when the DONALD was considering a presidential wannabe run as a Reform Party candidate, he decided not to, because he didn’t want to be associated with Pat Buchanan and his supporter, David Duke. At the time he knew enough to call Duke “a bigot, a racist, a problem.”

Times have changed and now that the hairball’s fan base consists of a large number of white supremacists, Duke has climbed on The DONALD’s bozo wagon. A few days ago, on his radio program, Duke warned his followers not to vote for Trump’s opponents.

Voting for these people, voting against Donald Trump, at this point, is really treason to your heritage.

Then on Monday, he explained that if ‘Murica was to survive “Zionists and the Jewish tribal extremists,” Trump must be elected.

We must understand that we are now in a struggle for the survival of European mankind. We must never mince our words about that. We are going down in numbers, all over the world. Mass immigration is going to completely remake our countries, our politics, our values, our religious beliefs, everything in which we identify with; everything and every value we have and the most critical issue facing the United States of America is whether or not we are going to remain an overwhelmingly European nation with the values of western Christian civilization or whether we’re going to become some sort of Third World nation and whether or not we’re going to be continued to be robbed and exploited and oppressed by the ultimate ethnic supremacists, of course, we’re talking about the Zionists and the Jewish tribal extremists.
There is a possible cause for Duke’s statement that has nothing to do with whether Trump is antisemitic. Duke goes on to say,
It’s obvious now to everybody. The top seven Super PACs of Hillary Clinton are all Jewish Zionists. No wonder she’s always supported these insane wars for Israel in the Middle East orchestrated by neocons for the interests of Israel rather than America. We have the same thing going on with the Republican Party today. The only person who has stepped out of that agenda has been Donald Trump .
Duke also commented favorably about Hairball’s stand on “mass immigration(Code for “non-Europeans.) and “the international bankers.” (“International bankers,” of course, being code for “Damn Jews”) In closing, he admonished his listeners that,
It’s very, very important that he wins this election for both the Republican nomination – and I think it’s important for him to win the presidency of the United States.
Stay tuned.

Screwy Louie Gohmert: The Terrorists Are Already Here

Screwy Louie’s back! (Actually, he never went away, but I’ve been trying my best to ignore him.)

Louie “Goober” Gomert, the former Chief Justice on Texas’s 12th Court of Appeals and multi-time winner of the San Antonio Current’s “Bonehead Quote of the Week” award, stopped by Breitbart for a little refugee bashing. He was interviewed on Breitbart News Daily by Stephen Bannon, Breitbart’s Executive Chairman.

When the subject of the 8 Syrians, 5 Pakistanis and an Afghani supposedly arrested while trying to sneak in the U.S. came up, Louie chimed in that he was glad,

people are waking up across the country to what’s been going on for quite some time.

Before we proceed, the FBI released this statement about the 5 Pakistanis and the Afghani that were apprehended crossing the border:

U.S. Border Patrol agents in Sonoita, Arizona, apprehended five Pakistani nationals and one Afghan national Monday. Agents also arrested two smugglers accompanying the group. As a standard procedure, agents processed the six individuals and checked their identities against numerous law enforcement and national security related databases. Records checks revealed no derogatory information about the individuals. The individuals are currently in federal custody.

They were trying to sneak in, however that in no way proves they are terrorists. We apprehend illegal immigrants daily. These just happened to be committing the crime of being Muslims.

As for the (gasp!) Syrians? Sorry, but they weren’t even trying to sneak in. Here’s the story on that: The two sets of parents and four children “presented themselves at the port of entry in Laredo” and told agents from Customs and Border Protection they wanted to enter the country. (Somehow, that doesn’t quite sound like the modus operandi of terrorists.)

Back to Goober.
They’re here, they’re here, there is no question, they’re here, that’s been confirmed over and over but it’s got to stop, it’s got to stop.

 Earth to idiot: As Chuck Todd pointed out on yesterday’s (11/22/15) Meet the Press,

There’s been nearly 785,000 refugees who have been admitted to the United States since 9/11. Only about a dozen — roughly one one thousandths of 1 percent — have been arrested or removed from the U.S. due to terrorism concerns. None of those folks removed were Syrian, by the way.

For someone who fancies himself an expert on the subject, you’d think Goober would know that. And, if he does know that, then he’s just flat-ass lying!

Goober rambled on,

This president wanted to fundamentally transform America and he’s been doing it. Unfortunately, he’s been doing it by looking the other way at the border.

(So, I guess all those Border Patrol Agents strung out along the border are just trying to improve their tans.)
Goober went on to say that the FBI Director consistently says there’s no guaranteed way to know who any incoming Syrian refugees “really” are, so it’s imperative to defund the Syrian refugee program completely.
Once again, Earth to idiot: here’s what it really takes for a refugee to be allowed admittance. It’ a process that can take up to a couple of years. Particularly notice steps 3,4&5.wh_blog_refugee_workflow_1120bBeing the fair and balanced person that I am, I will have to somewhat agree with the statement that terrorists are already here. Louie, however, neglects to mention that for the last two decades they are predominantly, white, right-wing fake “Christians.11252248_498547676997557_5075398934958670050_n
If you’ve got the stomach for it, here’s Goober’s entire interview: (Byo Pepto Bismol.)

 

Huckabee: Non-Violent Criminals Should Be Sold As Slaves (Video)

Slave SaleMike Huckabee has discovered a loophole in the 13th Amendment that the “prisons for profits” crowd is gonna love! You remember the 13th. That’s the one that outlawed slavery. (Except, not completely.)

Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.13th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, Section 1

Notice the “except as a punishment for crime” part. That opens up a whole new avenue of cash flow, while solving prison overcrowding and slashing on-going expenses of prison management!

Actually, the idea wasn’t originally Huckabee’s. He just pushed it to its illogical conclusion. Its modern history can be traced to an Iowa village idiot by the name of Jan Mickelson, a talk show twat with a daily program, “Mornings With Mickleson,” on WHO in Des Moines. I’ll get to him in a moment.

Tracing the idiotic idea back to it’s origins,

…for he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft. – Exodus 22:3

Yup folks, there it is! Right smack dab in the “good(?) book” itself. One of the many passages with a good word to say about slavery. The very book that several Regressives (Huckabee, Cruz, Carson, Jindal, Santorum) think trump (no relation) the Constitution. (Let that sink in for a moment.)

That particular passage is in reference to thievery, but back in August, the aforementioned filbert, Jan Mickelson decided to expand it a tad bit.

Since it’s well known, but easily proven lie, that illegal immigrants are a drain on honest, tax payin’ real ‘Muricans, then they are thieves and should be dealt with accordingly. If they can’t pay restitution,which in the bible, ranges from two to seven times the amount “stolen,” (depending on Big Daddy’s mood at the particular time, I guess) then, by jinkies, sell them suckers!

Put up a sign that says at the end of 60 days, if you are not here with our permission, can’t prove your legal status, you become property of the state. And then we start to extort or exploit or indenture your labor.

A caller commented that “it sounds an awful lot like slavery.” That prompted Mickelson to ask,

Well, what’s wrong with slavery?

Of course, creating a slave market for thievery, would include citizens as well, but so what? Farmer Zeke can always use some extra “free hands”.

Last week, Ben Carson (aka “Uncle Tom Oreo”) chimed in with his endorsement. He wants to round up all them illegal furiners and give them a choice: Get the hell out or go pick cotton (or apples or potatoes or rutabagas, etc.) for free.

(So, a descendant of slaves is endorsing slavery? When did we enter “Onion World?”)

Well, never a man to let someone else “out-bible” him, Huckabee, (aka “Hucksterbee” for obvious reasons) decided to play “One Up!” To do so, he went on “Mornings with Mickleson” to spread a little “christian” love and bullshit.

At one point, Mickleson was whining about the imagined, liberal takeover of the American justice system. (I guess he misses the old chain gang days.) He, of course, had his favorite solution:

[The Bible] says, if a person steals, they have to pay it back two-fold, four-fold. If they don’t have anything, we’re supposed to take them down and sell them. We indenture them and they have to spend their time not sitting on their stump in a jail cell, they’re supposed to be working off the debt. Wouldn’t that be a better choice?

To which, the huckster expanded the pool of prospective slaves,

Well, it really would be. Sometimes the best way to deal with a nonviolent criminal behavior is what you just suggested.

So, there you have it folks, the word from two horses’ mouths (the nether ones): Slavery is the solution to illegal immigration, theft, pot posession and prison overcrowding. As to profits for the “prisons for profit” crowd, there’s always the sellers fees and reduced guard salaries. It’s a win-win-win-win-win!

As for that silly old 13th Amendment, the writers were wise enough to leave a loophole big enough to drive a 20 mule team (with wagons) through it.

Stay tuned!
