A Fool With a Badge is Still a Fool

A Fool With a Badge is Still a Fool

When a would-be assassin shot my Dad, President Ronald Reagan,
nobody questioned the fact that the shooter was certifiably
nuts.
Authorities recognized that fact and put him in a mental institution as his
obvious disturbed mental state demanded.
Now we have another attempted killing of a public official, Arizona’s widely
admired Rep. Gabby Giffords, and just about everybody recognizes the fact that
the shooter, one Jared Loughner, is
crazy as a loon
.
Moreover, the fact that Loughner is probably nutty as a fruitcake, and
perhaps dangerously so, could not have escaped the attention of local law
enforcement authorities such as Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, who already
had Loughner in his sights yet failed to do anything to prevent Loughner’s
foreseeable killing spree.
Yet we don’t hear a word of repentance for his failure to foresee what
transpired in Tucson last Saturday. Not a word, mainly because Sheriff Dupnik is
too busy
attacking Rush Limbaugh
and other
conservatives
to turn his rhetoric loose on the shooter.
In Dupnik’s twisted logic, Loughner may be a murderer but somehow or other
it’s all Rush’s fault for his unforgivable habit of calling a spade a spade and
referring to liberals as being mentally disjointed, as the majority of them
are.
This kind of ridiculous response to a tragedy is becoming what the French
would call de riguer — the liberal’s order of the day when one of their
failures to recognize reality results in people getting killed.
As my more plainspoken friends would put it, Dupnik shoulda seen it coming,
and he’s now trying to obfuscate that fact by striking out at people who had not
a single thing to do with Loughner’s deadly actions.

Arizona Legislator Calls Obama’s Actions “Impeachable”

Arizona Legislator Calls Obama’s Actions “Impeachable”

November 30th, 2010

Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com

The campaign to impeach Barack Obama has a distinguished new advocate: Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce, who authored Arizona’s immigration law S.B. 1070. During a speech on November 19, Pearce told an audience:

Think  about it. This is the  first time in the history of  the United States  that a sitting president  has sided with a foreign  government to sue  the citizens of its country.  For defending our laws?  For defending and  protecting the citizens of the  state of Arizona? It’s  outrageous, and  it’s impeachable.

Senator Pearce was referring to the Obama administration’s decision to invite 11 Central and South American nations to join the federal government’s lawsuit against Arizona. This outsourcing ignores the president’s….

Obama Admin Threatens to Sue AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Obama Admin Threatens to Sue AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio

August 18th, 2010

Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports

The Obama administration has decided to get tough on illegal immigration…enforcement. The Washington Post reports today that Eric Holder is threatening to sue America’s toughest sheriff, Joe Arpaio if the sheriff does not help the administration continue a second frivolous lawsuit against him:

Justice Department officials in Washington have issued a rare threat to sue Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio if he doesn’t cooperate by Tuesday with their investigation into whether he discriminates against Hispanics…a federal grand jury in Phoenix is examining whether Arpaio has used his power to investigate and intimidate political opponents and whether his office misappropriated government funds, sources said.

That sounds serious. It’s not. Apparently “civil rights groups accuse the 78-year-old lawman of racial profiling,” as they do everyone else. (The Department of Homeland Security has estimated that 62 percent of all illegal immigrants are from Mexico, and even more from other Latin American nations. This suggests a potential profile.) In addition, “some Maricopa County officials say Arpaio has launched meritless corruption investigations against officials who have criticized his policies or opposed his requests” — so they’re launching a meritless investigation of Arpaio.

The Attorney General is demanding compliance even as his Justice Dept. is stonewalling an investigation into charges levied by a former employee that the department turns a blind eye to black crimes.

Left-leaning prosecutors do not see any merit in the case against Arpaio. Former Justice Dept. prosecutor Peter Zeidenberg, who helped prosecute Scooter Libby and donated $1,400 to Barack Obama in 2008,  said, “I don’t know what a charge would be…I’m not aware of any federal statute that would fit.”

Even the Post couldn’t help but notice the odd timing: “The standoff comes just weeks after the Justice Department sued Arizona and Gov. Jan Brewer (R) over the state’s new immigration law, heightening tensions over the issue ahead of November’s midterm elections.” This is merely a second front in the administration’s crackdown on its own citizens (on behalf of non-citizens).

Although it is unclear how he could win or hope to keep his case from being laughed out of court, Holder said he expects his case to “produce results.

That phrase reveals everything. The intention is not justice but harassment. This threatened lawsuit is simply the latest bout of federal thuggery, extortion, and intimidation against the Obama administration’s critics.

This prosecution of those who uphold the law on behalf of those who transgress the law represents Barack Obama and the Washington Democrat’’s modus operandi: every decision they make is 180-degrees from reality.

Obama will not enforce federal immigration law but is suing a state that offered to help Washington pick up the slack.

Although Obama does not want to investigate the funding of the Ground Zero mosque, Nancy Pelosi said yesterday she will “join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded.”

The president would not comment on the “wisdom” of putting a mosque on the site of the worst act of Muslim terrorism on U.S. soil (so far), but he has called police officers stupid for arresting a hostile suspect and auto officials avaricious for refusing a hostile union takeover.

He refuses to prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party (who voted for Obama) for threatening to beat white voters (who have voted against him), but instructed his Dept. of Homeland Security to spy on housewives and veterans who oppose abortion or gay marriage (or, yes, illegal immigration).

Michael Reagan points out in his column today that Obama has no time for Boy Scouts or the National Prayer Breakfast but he has hosted an Iftar dinner surrounded by Muslims. (He also held a Seder that reportedly commemorated the struggle for socialized medicine.)

This is the logical outcome of an administration that believes we must tax our way into prosperity, “spend money to keep from going bankrupt,” cower our way into respect, expand health care by reducing the number of doctors, bow our way into dominance, and balkanize our way to unity.
